Arent u gonna finish ITYTD? :(

My final review for my thesis is August 7th. If I don’t fail and graduate grad school, I’ll be able to get back on track with ITYTD. Until then, I’m pulling all nighters to get everything else done in time. Sorry it seems like it was abandoned… It’s been difficult juggling my time.

anonymous said:

So is that coming along?

Two days graduated, but I was anticipating this question sooner, lol. I’m still a bit in recovery and I had to move, but I’m feeling good about doing some writing soon. I’ll try to keep you all updated… Or not, sometimes I feel like it would be hella rad to just drop a chapter like a Beyoncé album.

so can you mix pokemon and brittana, trainers that fall in love in the battle

"Santana, what is this?" Brittany said, underneath a pile of clothes, books, and odd trinkets from the contents of Santana’s closet. 

"Don’t open that," Santana snapped, quickly grabbing the shoebox from her hands. Brittany tilted her head to the side, but nodded, letting her girlfriend have her privacy. She was, after all, invading fifty percent of her room.

That said, that didn’t stop Brittany from peeking later that night while Santana was making dinner. Inside the shoebox was a pile of assorted colored cartridges and a scraped and battered looking gaming console. Excited, Brittany grabbed one of the many cartridges and turned the system on.

Your very own Pokemon legend is about to unfold. A world of dreams and adventure with Pokemon awaits… Let’s go!

"What are you doing?" Santana interrupts, and Brittany realizes it’s been an hour since she turned on the game, not five minutes like she had thought.

"Oh my god! Brittany!" she shouts.

"I’m sorry! I just peeked!"

"You saved over my file!" She howls, snatching the game away, unconcerned about the embarrassing fact that Santana Lopez plays Pokémon. “I had a level 93 Arcanine…!”

if you have no intention to ever go back to writing your amazing story you should just say it instead of letting us sit here and keep on hoping that some day you might get back to it. sorry, i love the story it's just not really fair. if you are done, we should be too.

You know, I am not surprised that there are people with this opinion, and in fact, I definitely expected more of this. But to tell me that you love my story and that it’s not fair that you have to wait for a free source of entertainment isn’t very encouraging. It’s also not very nice.

Now, on top of everything else I have to deal with - moving, work, not being paid for my work, apartment problems, emotional stress from my family that lead me to crying to my supervisor because it’s literally the only support system I have right now, my graduate thesis, summer classes, bills, post-poning my graduation, etc…

…I also have to factor in that I have not written my story in over sixth months.

You love my story? Let me tell you something. I love my story. It’s part of me. It’s something that I have learned from, grown with, hoped with, cried over, and found love through. It’s also my coping mechanism. I write to relieve stress. To help find a small source of happiness through my hectic life.

I’m not writing for your attention, for followers, for popularity. I write for me and only me. I write because it’s what I love doing, and I’m sorry that my life gets in the way sometimes. A lot of the time. 

Now I don’t like excuses. I hate making excuses. And I’m not afraid of failing, but I’m not going to fail. Because I am going to finish this story, in spite of the fact that everything about asks like these makes me want to give up on the whole Brittana fandom. 

Don’t guilt trip me. I am already beating the crap out of myself for disappointing all of you, even though I’m supposed to be writing for me.  You haven’t gotten an update because for months and months the only thing ITYTD has been about is about how much the readers want a fucking update.

I want to enjoy writing. Don’t make me hate something I love.

whats your thesis proposal?


A girl who has no friends


(aside from her stuffed animal companion)


discovers a wishing well


that is actually a portal to the land of wishes.


Wishes take physical form as stars that grow on trees, and the girl decides to grant her own wish. Wishes are granted by releasing the stars from out of the well - her wish is for a real friend. Her dog stuffed animal can come to life in the Land of Wishes, but will return to his stuffed animal form outside of it.

In the LoW, the girl encounters strange creatures. They are all a variation of an animal + some form of container. 

A bat lantern


A bird cage


And a teapot turtle


These creatures eat the wishes, which is why not all wishes come true (they feed on ungrantable wishes). They are friendly, but when the girl goes to the wishing tree to pick her wish, she awakens an unfriendly and protective guardian of wishes.


And ultimately sacrifices her wish (and her dog) to escape from the well unharmed.

wait are you going to update ITYTD? like really? ok, I'm too happy right mow!!

Uh… Yeah… I know it’s been a while but I really just needed the time to get some other stuff squared away. I’m on vacation now, and so I’m writing a bit more. Although, I think I need to bounce some ideas back and forth with someone. That usually helps my writing. I need internet so I can get Skype running.

anonymous said:

will you ever write glee/pokemon fic? :D make it happen

Yes, I will. I recently figured out the baseline of my plot. Granted, it might change, but it’s essentially this:

Once childhood friends, Brittany, Santana, and Quinn graduate from the Pokémon Academy at odds. Santana, heir of the infamous Fire Gym of the Unova Region, sets her sights higher than merely Gym battles and chooses to pursue the ultimate goal of Pokémon Champion. Brittany, despite her parents desire for her to follow their footsteps and become a Pokémon Lab Technician, choses to become a trainer instead. Quinn has admirable goals to be a trainer, but secretly wishes to pursue fame and fortune at the Poké Star Studios. Her path is clashed with world renowned Pokémon Musical star, Rachel Berry.

Meanwhile, Team [Insert Name] is attempting to lure out the strength of a dark source of power from the cold depths of a sub-zero terrain. 

There’s more to it; part of the story takes place at the Pokémon Academy, the other half takes place during the travels of the heroes.

we really need ITYTD :(

Hey Valentine here

HeeBee’s sick at the moment and still busy with school work. So sorry about the lack of ITYTD at the moment, but like her health and school come first always.

Also ‘I Need a Medic’ and the ‘Knife Thrower’s Daughter’ were both updated this weekend. If you haven’t read them I highly encourage you to.

The rest of this post is to help with your need of some Brittana love.

Will you post a pic of you and your GF?

Probably not (as cute as she is). Nee’s not a huge fan of posting stuff like that on the internet, and I want to respect and maintain her privacy as much as possible (even if it means I don’t get to showcase how adorable she is).

I’ll see what she’s comfortable with when she gets here though. There’s going to be a lot of that, I think.

anonymous said:

I was just re-reading ITYTD (btw, your fic is what got me hardcore into the Brittana fandom, ily!) and thought I would check up on your tumblr to see if it would be updating soon. But instead I found out about all the awesome things going on in your life right now with the job and your gf and I'm so happy for you!! Aaaa congrats you beautiful person!


I’m kinda freaking out about it, but in a good way. Thank you!

Hey! I recently started a project to reclaim the selfie as a tool for self-love and expression. I was wondering if you could spread the word to your followers and check out the site. It's foryourselfie(.)com and everyone should submit some selfies! People can submit anonymously if they're more comfortable. Thank you!
