book: counting the stars

To know the dark side is merely to stop lying. Stop pretending you don’t want what you want. Stop pretending you don’t fear what you fear. Half the day is night, Master Yoda. To see truly, you have to learn to see in the dark.
—  Count Dooku, Yoda: Dark Rendezvous (Sean Stewart)

leia, princess of alderaan

  • not as bad as i was afraid it would be? not my fave book by any means, but not the worst
  • love interest dude was bland and boring, i really, really don’t understand what leia saw in him
  • but hey, the main message of the book seemed to be that if there are bad people out there in charge, then it’s your duty to fight them, and if you try to betray those fighting to the authorities you die
  • even if they did throw some saw bashing in there—you can fight but not TOO violently
  • it really should’ve been a leia/amilyn holdo romance, i honestly think they had more scenes than leia had with love interest boy, and amilyn actually is invested in the rebellion
    • (also she’s way more interesting than love interest boy)
    • (and i’m definitely hyped for her appearance in tlj now)
  • i wasn’t entirely fond of bail’s characterization, but breha was pretty fabulous

When all the stars align
For you and I
For you and I
- You and I by PVRIS (the music video has some flashing images/lights in it like most of their other videos so be careful)

Book: The Royal Romance (Book One)
Pairing: Maxwell x MC
Word Count: 2,091 words!!!!
Summary: The stars align for MC and Maxwell on the night of the Coronation Ball
Warnings: Some swearing so M for mature! also it might make you sad, sorry!
Notes: This is for this week’s choices creates, which has the prompt of movement of the stars. And as a big space nerd, this is my kinda prompt :D The song I used for the title makes me think of a couple who have been trying to be together for so long but the universe is always against them, and then one night, the stars align, and they can finally be together, even if it’s just for that one night. And idk about you guys, but to me, that just pERFECTLY describes Maxwell x MC, so here we are! also pvris are so good check them out, and they have a new album which just came out on Friday!!! (and i need to listen to it)

Also, shoutout to @gayforgayle, who requested a fic where Maxwell and MC dance to So Close from Enchanted together, and I had to oblige, so look forward to reading that in this fic!

1, 2, 6 and 49 for Blop and Solvent. :U


1: what inspires you?

Hmm… pretty much all kinds of media?? Like AMC was inspired by various music (most notably Counting Stars by Coldplay) and a book I read back in high school, T/U was inspired by the Metallica song of the same name and the movie The Island, and OTOLOS was actually inspired by a fanfic I read back when I was like 13 lmao. Not to mention all the daily inspiration I get from me friendos, either by reading what y'all write or just talking ❤️

2: one of your favorite comments/reviews

Jfc, that’s hard to say… these days reviews are at such a premium it makes my day even getting one 😂 and any time you, Ghostie, Ru, etc. have left one it’s always been that much more special to me.

But if I had to choose one, I’d probably have to look at AMC, bc there were so many times that someone said smth and I’d have to close my phone and just. think abt it for a while, lmao. Like “holy shit??? they mean that???”

But one of them I always think about was actually from @weezernaut, Mercutio left a string of reviews on AMC and in one of them asked if I had ever considered writing as a career. And that just. Rlly stuck with me?? Bc before that point I had never thought about becoming an author a lot, it was just kinda an afterthought. But that review is what made it a legitimate goal for me to get published one day. It just meant so much to me, and it definitely helped me push on and finish AMC and begin writing other things.

6: hardest/easiest character to write for?

Easiest for me is definitely Silv, but I feel like a lot of the sanic characters are easy to write. Silv’s so headstrong, you can shove him in p much any situation and he’ll probably react the same each time - do anything to be proactive about it. The hardest part abt writing him is coming up w new ways for him to get in trouble, lol.

Hardest to write for me has always been Rouge, for whatever reason. Idk why exactly, I guess I’m always afraid of simplifying her character too much, lol. That’s why I’ve always shied away from her when it comes to casting for fics.

49: this character’s starbucks order?

Blaze: Any frappuccino, but vanilla bean is her fav. Likes the cold drinks bc she’s always hot (👀)

Silv: Hot chocolate. Whatever the biggest size is. Doesn’t rlly like coffee but could drink hot chocolate all day long, it helps him relax.
