Kinda out of the blue here, but do you think Jack and pitch would ever have like, an actual wedding? Black, silver, blue colors. It'd be so sweet!
I am…the worst person to ask about this, because I don’t believe in the institution of marriage (yes, I’m one of those people), and therefore the characters I write don’t believe in it either (because of the autocratic power an author has over their characters, it’s one of the perks of the job).
So rather than shatter your beautiful dream further by going into painstaking detail about why I don’t think Jack and Pitch would marry, I’ll just kind of leave it as the above paragraph and let you imagine the most awesome, sweet ritual ever. I’m sure there’ve been other readers who have imagined the same thing. :)
Twenty two years have passed since the defeat of Pitch, and Jack lives alone, touch-starved, with only the company of a solitary Nightmare. One evening the Man in the Moon sets him on a path that will lead him to unexpected relationships, draw the attention of the Guardians to a new coalition of villains, and challenge Jack’s every notion of what it is to be good, evil, and what it is to live in the shadows.
so my friend told me to read this fic by @not-poignant and i was bored so i did and it turned out to be hella amazing so here’s a badly made trailer for it that’ll i’ll just leave here
Which fics are FtDWR and ISWF? Like, I know they are acronyms for the titles of the fics but I can't work out which titles/which fics, because I'm tired, stressed by exams, and my brain abandoned ship long ago.
Here, anon, have a blanket fort and some hypoallergenic puppies, and some chocolate, and I’ll give you the links too (though you may not need them):
ok so this is probably the starting point of quite a lot more augus scribbles that i’ll continue uploading as I clean out my sketchbook - so imma call it a ‘series’ and hope it’ll help me keep motivated. i think we all know that augus belongs to @not-poignant and i can’t stop thinking about how much i love him - that being said i only read FTDWR & ISWF and not the other parts of the SALverse (nor the Fae Tales - yes shame on me i know) and my augus is always based on that–
I've just finished rereading salverse again and wow, the ending of iswf gets me every time. Every thing ties up so nicely and I'm so happy you gave Jack a few chapters to feel anxious about the war not being over. Also, is there any fanart of Jack's lighthouse that you can link me to? I've always wanted to see it. (also, I'm about to start tgatnw and I'm so excited!! I love your works!)
the time, we’d actually talked about it a little and what it was
supposed to look like via chat, and it’s the most fully realised version
of it. :) And that piece of art is just sublime.
I hope you enjoy TGATNW!
And yeah, I really liked being able to give Jack some chapters where his PTSD wasn’t magically resolved because the final conflict had happened, and also being able to spin that into a denouement that would give them at least 4-5 chapters of a happy ending, because they’d definitely earned it!
Hi, I'm the anon who asked what FtDWR and ISWF stood for. Thank you for de-misting my foggy brain. I'm going to take a break from studying, go in that blanket fort with those puppies and read until my hearts content. I'm studying to be a veterinarian, thank you for wishing me luck!
Oh, what an awesome job (and challenging, but I imagine you know all about that side of things <3) Extra luck with your exams! I suppose you don’t need the (non-existent) hypoallergenic puppies after all :D
Tarantism - The urge to overcome melancholy by dancing.
Pitch Black/Jack Frost
(I got two requests for this! Same word, same pairing! Guess two of you really want to see Jack and Pitch dance.)
(SALverse, basically fluff)
It was one of those days.
The words didn’t quite capture the heaviness of it. He didn’t have these days so often anymore. They tended to come on the backs of dreams about his old world, his old life – how many old lives did he have now? The one as the Nightmare King. The one as Pitch. The one as Kozmotis. The one as Kozmotis pre-Seraphina. The one as Kozmotis post-Seraphina.
This time, he’d dreamt about the celebrations after the successful initiation ceremony into becoming a golden warrior. It had been a rocky affair, he’d gone deeper into the darkness than the others and his supervisor had known it and carefully said nothing after seeing the look in Pitch’s eyes. So Pitch had tried to embrace the vivacity of his colleagues and peers, drinking as vigorously as they, and yet in the depths of him a darkness whispered quietly.
Braaaah the motherfucking pain I'm feeling rn. Okey, I've been in this fandom since you started updating FTDWR that was like when I was like 15/16 and all that teenage girl angst willy nilly. You are the reason why I chose to go into english/creative writing for college because of your way of words. Your storybuilding amazes the fuck outta me. I've been following your writing to this day because like wtf bro, these characters are their own persons with their own dynamic issues which I (1•4)
absolutely adore BUT HERE’S THE PROBLEM PIA IM REREADING FTDWR! I chose
this as a reward for finishing another college semester alive but now
it’s like a punishment ;-; fucking pitch with his “im not going
anywhere” like BITCH YES YOU ARE (T-T) omfg and then the fucking smut!
THE FUCKING SMUT SO GOOD HOW DID MY YOUNG SELF SURVIVE THAT?! Now, after
finishing each chapter, I don’t get the novelty of being left in the
dark, wondering what’s gunna happen next! I KNOW EXACTLY WHATS GUNNA
I KNOW THAT PITCH IS GUNNA GET FUCKED BY THE NIGHTMARE FUCKS IN THE GYM,
JACK IS SO FUCKING SAD AND WEAK AND SAD, BUT JACK IS GUNNA SEE MORA
AGAIN, GOOD BYE SWORD HELLO GIANT AX THING, HELLO TO YOU TOO ANGRY PITCH
WELCOME BACK, AND GOOD MORNING TO YOU BIG ARMCHAIR ;))))) The struggle
is nonexistent rn because I transcended waaaay past it like on chapter
10 or so >_> //
So that’s my dilemma and oh boy is it gunna double once I get into game
theory and shit like oh man oh boy, I thought I was stressing out now? I
gotta prep some tissues and hot chocolate for myself in a few days. I
guess what I’m trying to say is that I fucking love you and thank you
for giving me the chance to read your stuff and to pursue something that
I enjoyed but too afraid to pursue, this has officially been the
longest anon message I’ve sent you #NoRegrets (4•4) <33333
ok i was listening to your ftdwr playlist and it like starts off SUPER dramatic with violins and then it goes slow and almost mournful then a little adventurous BUT THEN upbeat lil ukulele songs- and then it gets a little sad again. Then it just sort of mellows down into a sad song. I guess it's like jack. and how he feels throughout ftdwr. That was a really interesting experience to have it sort of aligned to the book rather than taking the overall emotion and creating a playlist based on that.
I do actually for the most part try and arc a playlist so it’s both evocative of certain feelings I relate to the character, but also links back to the character’s or story’s journey. Which, in some cases, means the playlist can be really spoilery, lol.
I mean some are just straight up ambience, but for the most part a playlist is arranged for me to feel like the way a story might progress. Which means sometimes when I’m writing a certain chapter, instead of listening to the playlist, I might just listen to the same two songs on loop over and over again. :D But ahhh, thank you for writing this! It’s so cool to be able to share that side of things with people and have them see that in the music, and I’m not sure anyone else had before.
