anonymous asked:

What was the catalyst that inspired you to write Riptide Lover?

Awesome question.

There are two contributing factors: firstly, I was in the Antidiogenes chat room with my fellow writers and I had a wild hair to write a PWP one shot with one of the boys as a merman or some kind of monster. I wanted to challenge myself to keep the character core personalities recognizable somehow whilst dipping my toes into writing AU fanfic.

The dip turned into a swan dive - or maybe a graceless cannonball?

Secondly, and more interestingly perhaps: a few nights prior to this, I had a nightmare in which an undine (not a merman, it was definitely an undine) trapped me in a grotto. I remember feeling terrified of him, and intrigued.

I have a book in the works that focuses on the world of Faerie (as I perceive it, with all my wild imaginings) - and the undine feature there. But the mythology, sexuality, and danger of the undine is barely touched on in the story at all. So I think I was CRAVING an outlet to explore my idea of merfolk, but also obsessed with Sherlock. (1 + 1 = merpeen?)

World building is what I eat, sleep, and breathe. I am so happy I get to explore it further with a fandom twist. Thanks for asking.

wibbly wobbly challenge → [1/2] monsters/villain as “horror movie/show”

The Doctor as Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde

I learned to recognize the thorough and primitive duality of man; I saw that, of the two natures that contended in the field of my consciousness, even if I could rightly be said to be either, it was only because I was radically both.
