and tbh this is a lot to handle okay

Okay you know what I know we were all so worried about biphobia or slut shaming or what have you but honestly I thought they handled that incredibly well? It makes perfect sense for them to be a little bit anxious about that disparity, and especially for Alec I can imagine there’s a lot of insecurity there and I think if they hadn’t touched on that it would have been almost unrealistic? And Alec didn’t have a bad reaction, he got scared. And Magnus also was surprised by Alec’s lack of experience, you know? Which I feel like puts them both in an equally wrong footed position and made that awkwardness totally understandable. And they resolved it right away and agreed to put in the effort necessary to understand and be with each other like bless this show for giving us the malec we deserve

8. is there a character you love writing for the most? the least? why?

for sh, i identify with alec really heavily so i do write him a lot bc he’s easiest for me tbh, but i actually think i enjoy it more when i write characters who are a bit more of a struggle for me to get into their mindset. like i’ve written some jace pov fics and i really enjoy those. who i like writing least is probably the ones i haven’t written, bc there’s a reason for that tbh. like a lot of my fics feature izzy but i’ve never really written izzy pov fic and i really want to but i just don’t feel like i have a handle on her voice so i worry i would screw it up

7. create a character on the spot…. NOW!

on the spot! that’s too much pressure. but okay, here’s my oldest oc (not like she’s old in age, but just i’ve had her the longest..): michelle (mikey) velasquez, pop star (!!!! guess how old i was when i invented her), bisexual, tragic backstory (her high school sweetheart died of cancer their senior year), slowly falls in love with one of her backup dancers. ❤ she’s my fave, i love her

11. what are your weaknesses wrt writing?

i made a post about this recently but i’m just not a good sensory scene painter? like the reader can just decide for themselves where everybody is standing and what they’re wearing and how things fucking smelled okay, i don’t care about that??? i just want everyone to understand how people are feeling and how their voices sound and whether their hands are shaking. i just can’t bring myself to put energy into all that other stuff it seems so irrelevant

13. who are your favorite writers?

for professional writers, i think my two faves are probably tamora pierce and francesca lia block which is funny bc they have completely different styles. francesca lia block writes like poetry, like i wish i could write tbh. and tamora pierce writes the kind of intricate fantasy plots and awesome fully formed characters i wish i could write

and a special extra shoutout to @wickds for making that pretty gif up there!! i probably missed so many people because i suck so if you’re not on here and you think you should be, i love you!!!! i’m just dumb okay.

okay so by now you know I ship Judy/Nick, and not surprisingly so do a bunch of other people. I’ve been looking up shipping art of them and I’ve noticed a lot of people are portraying Judy as this flustered docile girl with Nick as the suave seducer, which is fine if that’s your thing, but TBH… I think it’d be the other way around!

Judy clearly knows how to handle herself, she takes charge, she’s confident, I think she’d be the one mercilessly teasing him and then casually going back to her job like nothing happened. Nick meanwhile has been so used to using people that he’s completely thrown off being used himself, and might be the mindset of OH NO SHE MET MY STANDARDS OH NO I FIND HER ATTRACTIVE WHAT DO WHAT DO WHAT DO while struggling to play it cool.

yes i’ve already thought of several short fanfic ideas this is my life now
