“ Fanfic Recommendations Something you ought to know about me: I’m INSANELY picky and critical over Natasha’s characterization. So many people streamline her personality to that of an ice cube or a robot, and IT’S JUST NOT CORRECT. She’s HUMAN. She has emotions. Sure, she’s a complex character and may not show them often, but that does not, in any way, make her a cold, emotionless bitch. Therefore, not only with my own writing, but with the fanfics I read, if they don’t have her written correctly, I won’t even try to bother. These lovely people have earned the “Sass’ Seal of Approval” in the “Romanoff Characterization” category, and therefore everything they write is worth its word count in gold: Sidhera Brbshittoavenge Mindsofiron Euphoricsound Debtsandredledgers ”—sassassin-d
An actual blog post
I’m still on hiatus, for the most part. I’m lurking here and there, but I still need a couple more weeks to continue to work on some things in my life. It’s been a productive, if difficult, time for me. I think sometimes life presents you with pain, challenges, and work that precede (I hope!) positive change. I’m doing my best to meet this particular set of challenges with everything I’ve got.
I did feel the need to express my gratitude, however, now and not later. In the thick of a very difficult time, a lot of you have messaged me and emailed me to check in. This has warmed my heart and meant the world to me. You’ve put a smile on my face, made me feel wonderful and I thank you.
Pamela, Amanda, and Rebecca, I can’t thank you enough for the support, the emails, the text messages, the beautiful fic (uuggghhh my feels, Pamela), the check-ins, and all the listening you’ve done over the last month. I love you dearly. I’ve depended on you, and you’ve let me, and this would have been much harder without you. So much love and gratitude to you that I can’t think of words in English that would do the feelings justice. Maybe Rebecca could help me find them in Latin.
Rereading some parts of Stumbling Home before I edit the epilogue, and then it’s off to the betas. Eeep! *bites nails*
Since you guys are so nice and patient, here’s a snippet! <3<3<3
Okay everyone. I have actually decided to start posting the fic I’ve been working on.
I’m really, really nervous about posting it, but several people have been telling me that I should.
Next post will be the first chapter. I’d be appreciative if you’d all let me know what you think.
I LOVE YOU GUYS AND WOULDN’T HAVE BEEN ABLE TO DO IT WITHOUT YOU!!!
