hello. i'm emily. i've been fanning for decades. current obsession: glee's kurt + blaine, because it's nice when people aren't smashing laptops. this is always a feminist, queer positive space, full of explorations and ideally lulz. Link to AO3

Kurt’s in his twenties and it seems like everyone is getting married – except for him. When he meets gorgeous Blaine Anderson at a wedding, there’s a spark. (That night, there’s more than just a spark.) Their paths continue to cross over the course of many weddings and, sadly, a funeral. Are they meant to be, despite terrible timing?

A Four Weddings and A Funeral AU.

I really enjoyed reading this. It managed to mesh the story of the film with these characters. I especially love that it feels like Kurt (whose POV we get the story from) has a wider world, a group of friends and family who support him. Some especially fab bits with Santana and with Mercedes. Blaine, by turns suave, confused, put together and a total mess, feels so very Blaine here. Really lovely story.

(A warnings note, as didn’t see this listed: infidelity features, and this is obvious from what it’s an AU of but there’s character death)

This was so nice to see; thank you so much!

[It’s a really good point about the infidelity tag, which I’ve added. Thanks for that, too.]

I know I’ve been super quiet lately, but that’s not for lack of things happening. Mostly it’s because I’m spread too thin to blog. But last week I received this lovely cover for a coming-of-age romance of mine that Torquere will release in July. Called “Tomboy,” here’s what it’s about:

In 1950s America, everyone is expected to come out of a cookie-cutter mold. But Harriet Little prefers the people who don’t, like her communist-sympathizer father and her best friend Jackie, a tomboy who bucks the school dress code of skirts and blouses in favor of T-shirts and blue jeans. Harriet comes to realize she’s different too when she starts to swoon over Rosemary Clooney instead of Rock Hudson, and before long she’s secretly dating the most popular girl in the school. But she soon learns that real love needs a stronger foundation than frilly dresses and a pretty demeanor.

Thanks to @damnpene and @nerdyfangirling for the feedback on a previous draft. Though it’s not a novel, it’s my longest accepted piece so far, so I hope it will gratify those of you who have been poking me for longer works. (I’m looking at you, @judearaya / @judesierra​!)

If I want people to actually see my posts, I should probably schedule tumbler to blog them at some time other than 3 AM. Here I try again.

me: i don't have to be the best at everything, it's unrealistic and impossible, i can just be satisfied with who i am right now
brain: okay but consider: you DO have to be the best at everything and anything else is unacceptable and pathetic
me: shit you're right

something weird

im bi but I tend to get crushes on fictional male characters more that real men and real women more than fictional female characters

so I guess I like to concept of men

i think this is a common feeling because men are written with such depth and complexity, whereas fictional women are not only few and far between, but are written half-assedly and from a place of little understanding of a woman’s standpoint. 

meanwhile, real women are lovely and complex people, and real men are mostly just potatoes.
