hey i genuinely hope this doesnt cause any offence (i love your hair colour), but how did you get a job with coloured hair, multiple piercings and tattoos? i feel like lots of employers nowadays frown upon that type of stuff ?
I would never work anywhere that limits my self-expression and identity. I’ve always wanted to work with this company, and I’ve kept pursuing it until it was within reach. They’re amazing, and honestly even throughout the interviewing and training process, my hair colour and nose piercing didn’t even come into question or into the discussion. They really rely on their diversity and genuinely cherish each employee a lot (like honestly i get paid more than I could ever have imagined/hoped for). My hair colour has definitely limited my job prospects in the past, but it’s led me to work at a really awesome place. In terms of career wise, I’m not sure what’ll come of my hair colour in terms of a professional job, but the truth is that it’s almost 2018 and not hiring someone merely because of a hair colour is quite ridiculous. Hope that makes sense x
R: Are there any writers (fanfic or otherwise) you consider an influence?
I read a lot of Tamora Pierce as a kid. She was to me what J.K. Rowling was to…well just about everyone else. I’m not sure how much my style resembles hers now but I always enjoyed her work. Great characters. Great world building.
I don’t know if I’ve been reading fanfics long enough for any fanfic authors to be really considered influences necessarily. That said, there are some amazing writers out there that I admire. To name one, @writingwife-83 is an inspiration. Her work is a standard I strive towards. Not necessarily in matching style, per say, but in quality for sure.
S: Any fandom tropes you can’t resist?
Mutual pining. Fake dating/married. Bed sharing. Anything cute that involves them eventually confronting their feelings.
T: Any fandom tropes you can’t stand?
Good question. Just about any trope can be fun if it is written well, just as much as it can be terrible when written poorly.
The infallible lead is pretty lazy writing in my opinion. It’s alright for a character to be awesome at what they do, but they need to have enough nuance and reason for them to have those skills to make it interesting.
Also not big on the whole “I’m being a jerk to save you” thing. It’s incredibly frustrating to me.
