for the ask meme: I'm going to be OVERLY CURIOUS and ask 3 & 4 for your current WIP! *cackles*
Ugh, Pike, whyyyyyyyyyy. Why do you keep airing my dirty laundry?!
3: What’s your favorite line of narration?
Not necessarily my favourite, since I’m not going to paste porn and I don’t want to spoil too much, but I think this is a good taster for this terrible fic:
Since Kael had presented as an alpha, Rommath had forced himself, with varying levels of success, to habituate himself to Kael’s natural scent, in much the same way as one who dwelled in a house full of dogs quickly lost their ability to tell that it reeked.
4: What’s your favorite line of dialogue?
I can’t actually show my favourite line of dialogue yet because a) it’s the climax of a scene and I don’t want to spoil it, and b) it’s completely ridiculous when taken out of context. SO, have my second favourite! It’s from deep, deep within the WIP, and appropriately signals the trash status of the fic:
“I wonder whose it is?” Tae’thelan mused, making a show of holding his chin and tapping his finger. “It has to be someone close to you, someone who has had reason thus far not to expose you. Not Sunreaver; he’s a beta with a chip on his shoulder. The great Grand Magister Rommath wouldn’t let a beta breed him. So that rules out Bloodsworn as well, even if you two do plot together.
“Not a magister, then. Liadrin? I’d wager you have too much cock for her liking, though it would be hilarious… Which leaves us with Theron and Brightwing. Brightwing’s more handsome, though I imagine Theron is better at keeping secrets – and what a secret this is.”
Early apologies to anyone who follows me who actually reads my shit
I beg you not to judge me okay I’m still questioning and exploring this new thing I have discovered-
So I’ve noticed there’s lots of monster boy/human girl or monster girl/human boy in the teratophilia tag but?? Where’s my human boy/monster boy?? Human girl/monster girl??
A 10'0 tall monster with scales and horns and curved claws wrapped around his 5'8 tall human with freckles and soft spiky hair and a cocky grin because hey, look, my true love is this huge, terrifying monster who’s actually a marshmallow.
A 9'8 tall demon with feathers and spikes and long teeth carrying her 5'4 blonde, chubby and angelic girlfriend on her shoulder with a proud look because she has the best human who loves her even though she’s non-human and her human is just as proud because her monster is so sweet and kind and shy around her.
when will they stop using robert sugdens character as a plot device and like….. be interesting about it
because like you’ve got the bisexual son of a farmer who lost both of his parents by time he was 23 and the show has like… barely touched on how he copes with being a literal orphan with a step mother who has always favoured his other siblings more
he’s a character who’s got a bit of a ~ shady ~ past and has spent a year actively trying to be better and do better for the person he loves but is still willing to go to extreme ends to protect his family
you’ve got a missing ten years of his life you could fill with So Much and like… you’ve decided a cheating storyline is your best route to go down?
I’ve always found robert a compelling character - he literally watched his mother die in a fire, he grew up feeling as though his father preferred andy and that’s got to just Fuck you up, and his father sent him away when he was 19 and told him to never come back
why waste a character with so much history and struggle in his life on… a cheating plot
at this point it’s not even just bad writing to me it’s honestly boring writing
The diplomatic missions were one of the things he liked best about being a paladin. Right after, you know, piloting a giant mechanical lion robot in space. Seeing other planets, helping forge bonds that would outlive him by several millennia. Protecting people in a way that would last. Feeling like it all mattered. The inevitably cute alien chicks were just one of the bonuses.
