4.) are there any other fic writers you admire?
oh my god… OH MY GOD… are there any fic writers i admire… ARE THERE ANY FIC WRITERS I ADMIRE??? I ADMIRE LITERALLY EVERY SINGLE FIC WRITER THAT HAS EVER WALKED THE FACE OF THIS PLANET.
because that will be an awfully long list, here are just a few:
francesca fromherlips cigarette daydreams FUCKED ME UP in the best possible way. she is one of the most fashion savvy people i’ve ever known and i’m so excited that she’s exploring that side in ‘in your atmosphere!!!’ also CAKE FOR BREAKFAST, anyone??? ALSO CAN WE PLEASE TALK ABOUT HER BANNERS??? wtf how do you even do such a cool thing. hannah beggingforfics always has such unique story ideas (SOMEONE WHO CAN TELL PEOPLE’S TRUE LOVES JUST BY TOUCHING THEM ALSO WEREWOLVES WTF THAT IS SO COOL) and is also the author of one of the most tragically under appreciated stories of all time (broken things). go read it!!! kath bioluminescentwriting is the QUEEN OF WONDERFUL AU’S AND PLOT DEVELOPMENT!!!!!! there were scenes from salute that i honestly couldn’t believe weren’t written by a famous, published author THAT’S HOW MAGICAL KATH’S WRITING IS!!! i’m so excited for ‘res ipsa loquitar’ and ‘satellite call’ THAT I COULD PUKE!!!! i think of natasha wokeuptired as the benevolent leader of the 1d fanfic community because she is so organized and devotes so much of her time to finding/recognizing unknown fics/authors!!! A TRUE GEM OF THE WORLD. also how can i talk about natasha without bringing up THE INCREDIBLE, BREATHTAKING PROSE OF ‘A HISTORY IN RUST’???? amazing!!! lou nebulastyles where do i even begin??? you’ve all read ‘strangeness & charm’ and are reading ‘flickers’ right??? RIGHT??? bc if not WHY WOULD YOU DEPRIVE YOURSELF OF SUCH A UNIQUE, WONDERFUL WORLD AND CHARACTERS??? also, ‘crooked heart’???? PLEASE CH HARRY IS THE CUTEST HUMAN BEING EVER. alice afitzgeraldfic I FINALLY JUST READ ‘DISCONNECTED’ AFTER THE MOST SHAMEFULLY LONG TIME OF HAVING NOT READ IT AND IT BLEW MY MIND!!!!!! not only is the prose some of the loveliest i’ve ever read in fic, BUT IT MAKES ME FEEL SO MANY THINGS. also charlie and harry’s relationship is handled with MUCH APLOMB. aj cheesewithchips IF YOU’RE NOT READING ‘FOREVER HOLD YOUR PEACE’ THEN WHAT ARE YOU EVEN DOING???? not only is she a fellow member of the fake dating squad (ayeee) but BIRDY AND HARRY ARE THE LITERAL CUTEST. THEIR BANTER IS MY REASON FOR EXISTING. allison littlebird006 OKAY NO ONE IS GOING TO TRY TO DENY THAT HARRY AND TENEIL ARE AMONG THE GREATEST COUPLES EVER WRITTEN, RIGHT? RIGHT????? not only is teneil one of the sassiest, cleverest characters i’ve ever had the pleasure of reading about, but her version of harry is amazing and unique as well!!! bex rebexciting OKAY so besides almosts (which is one of the most interesting ideas for a uni fic i’ve ever heard) HAVE YOU ALL READ HER FLOWER SHOP AU, ‘stay made out of lightning???’ because i only have nine lifechanging words for you about it… “every flower i’ve ever bought has been for you.” “EVERY FLOWER I’VE EVER BOUGHT HAS BEEN FOR YOU.” “EVERY FLOWER I’VE EVER BOUGHT HAS BEEN FOR YOU”!!!!!!! just TRY not to melt when you get to that part, i FUCKING DARE YOU. last but certainly not least natalie stylesprimes i’m pretty sure everyone i’ve ever spoken to knows how i feel about ‘nom de plume’ because it’s about 80% of what i think about BUT HOW ABOUT WE TALK ABOUT THE PHENOMENAL PROSE IN ‘DANDELION AND BURDOCK’ RIGHT NOW??? because it is INCREDIBLE. every chapter leaves me wanting MOREEEE i am in complete awe of natalie’s prowess.
OKAY LITERALLY THE ONLY REASON I AM GOING TO STOP LISTING FIC WRITERS IS BECAUSE I HAVE TO LEAVE SOON AND WANT TO SAVE TIME TO ANSWER THE OTHER QUESTIONS. EVERYONE SHOULD KNOW THAT THERE ARE MANY MORE FIC WRITERS I WANT TO GUSH ABOUT.
6.) first fic/pairing i’ve wrote for?
when i was in middle school i wrote a james sirius potter/oc fic on ff.net lol. i deleted it off the site but i just recently found the google doc for it and it’s sooo bad lol i couldn’t read a single sentence without cringing
18.) how old were you when you started writing?
i’ve been writing for as long as i can remember!! i would always have these intensely complex ideas for epic fantasy series, spend hours planning out every single detail, then write 500 words, abandon it and start thinking of a new story lol. i have a folder on my google docs called ‘the graveyard of broken dreams’ which are basically just old story ideas from when i was a kid
