i need snk season two. i’ve been reblogging variations of the same 10 anime scenes for almost two years now and it is driving me insane. i get it. the world is cruel and also very beautiful. eren and armin want to see the ocean and the outside world. i get it. levi’s squad died and it was sad. i get it. we are so thoroughly out of material it it driving me up a wall. possibly up many walls. maybe even wall maria.
Hey boys. I'm feeling down bc of my body. I'm fat and ugly and my mother likes to remind me of that all the time. Do you have problems with your bodies and self esteem as well? How do you handle those? Thank you.
Saeyoung: !!! No, no! Shush! Don’t say those things about yourself!
Saeran: Screw your mom. You’re fine just the way you are.
Saeyoung: Yeah, that’s right! You’re beautiful on the inside and out…people come in so many different shapes and sizes, and that’s what makes you unique! So don’t pay any attention to what others think!
Saeran: I used to have a lot of self-esteem issues, especially when I was younger…trust me, I know what it’s like to live with someone who can’t appreciate you for who you are.
Saeyoung: You can’t let those bad thoughts get you down…you have to keep moving forward! That’s how Saeran and I got through all of our problems together, right? So don’t give up!
On the fence about scrapping SiMH–writing for it began when I still had tech crew memories fresh in my mind, but it’s been too long now. I can’t really remember too much for what I wanted them to go through.
That, and I’ve lost a lot of interest for EA for the past year, so motivation to continue it is at…23%, I should say. I still like the ship, but just taking a look at the first page on FFnet or AO3 and reading through some of them has made me realize that views/portrayals of the characters have shifted/evolved into something almost entirely different from their original incarnations. They share the same names as Elsa and Anna, but that’s it. Their actions, thoughts, motivations…it doesn’t feel like them anymore. Too much of the writer is put in, or too much influence from another series. Even if you displace them to a different setting with different backstories, there are still characteristics of them that would still stick, but it just feels like all of that is lost in translation these days. Or for the past 2 years, rather.
Fics aside, other content for it is also basically dried up, which doesn’t help with getting back in the groove. Hell, I don’t even bother checking the tag anymore since there’s nothing of interest usually.
So I guess for SiMH, I’ll give it the same treatment as I did for Tick Tock in that I’ll just reveal what I had planned. That way, I can come back to it whenever without the pressure of leaving people hanging on something. Because they’d already know. Sure, it spoils everything, but if it takes the weight off, I don’t really care.
That, and it’s proven that no one reads notes anyway, lol. Kenneth did a glorious–albeit unintentional–experiment with that a while back for Tempest.
tl;dr–would you guys rather just ask whatever questions you have for The Song in My Heart, or have me post an overall summary of sorts for it? Because the first third of the fic’s planning doc is roughly 20 pages long lol
