Read the first 26 pages of A Good Idea by Cristina Moracho! 

About A Good Idea: 

Fin and Betty’s close friendship survived Fin’s ninth-grade move from their coastal Maine town to Manhattan. Calls, letters, and summer visits continued to bind them together, and in the fall of their senior year, they both applied to NYU, planning to reunite for good as roommates.

Then Betty disappears. Her ex-boyfriend Calder admits to drowning her, but his confession is thrown out, and soon the entire town believes he was coerced and Betty has simply run away. Fin knows the truth, and she returns to Williston for one final summer, determined to get justice for her friend, even if it means putting her loved ones—and herself—at risk.

But Williston is a town full of secrets, where a delicate framework holds everything together, and Fin is not the only one with an agenda. How much is she willing to damage to get her revenge and learn the truth about Betty’s disappearance, which is more complicated than she ever imagined—and infinitely more devastating?

I've got a sneaky suspicion Crowen fans are a bunch of rude, insensitive, little informed, unattractive women like Cristina that delude themselves that a man like Owen would look at them twice, let alone love them forever… poor things, reality is going to hit them very hard.

LOL! Omg I know I shouldn’t laugh at this but I did.

Introducing: The Girls of the Born to Make History AU

can you tell i like the k style doll maker a lot after all this time

I haven’t updated this AU since like last month, so here’s some quick headcanons for my future gen kids (click on the images to figure out who’s who)

Sam(antha) Cristina Ji - de la Iglesia (Los Angeles, CA)

  • Guatemalan by birth, was adopted by the Ji - de la Iglesias when she was like 2
  • Used to ice dance with her adopted (Chinese) brother Daniel (will touch on him in the future), but they quit before they reached the junior level to pursue other interests
  • Takes no crap, will sass you because she is savage as heck (also 5000% done with brother’s shenanigans)
  • Now dances ballroom in university (CS major at Stanford)
  • Polyglot in the making (currently fluent in English, Spanish, and Mandarin, working on Russian, Japanese, and Korean); languages come so easily to her it’s ridiculous (especially compared to her brother’s crappy language skills)
  • bi af
  • is the family member that brings up politics over the dinner table at any major holiday
  • world news / politics / important issues / rant vlog channel

Ekaterina/Katie/Katya/Rima Nikiforovna Katsuki (Detroit/Canton, MI)

  • Yes, she has a lot of nicknames (see the earlier chapter I wrote on her)
  • Ladies’ figure skater for America
  • Slightly more fluent in Russian than Japanese based on frequency of usage (dad Yuri blames uncles Yurio and Otabek); can get by in both languages with conversationally, but would not be able to write you an eloquent essay
  • Did I not mention fatalistic humor and sarcasm? (”kill me NOW”, “i am dead”, “oh eww why are you like this”)
  • Loves to call Mila “MOM” whenever she sees her (Mila was her surrogate mother), even though Mila is really more like the chill aunt you see twice a year
  • Older sister figure to Stepan Plisetsky-Altin (I’ll cover him in some other post)

Shreya Chulanont (Bangkok, Thailand)

  • Her mother is Indian; only knows a bit of Bengali though
  • Born and raised in Thailand, so she’s very fluent in Thai
  • A bit ditzy, but super sunshine personality, just like her dad
  • Studying business/econ at University of Michigan (visits the Nikiforov-Katsuki household a lot as a result), but really wants to go into the restaurant industry and have her own gig
  • High-key health nut; runs a fitspo blog that covers workout regimes, healthy foods, and cooking tutorials
  • Sort of an older sister figure to Ekaterina

Fleur Giacometti (Zurich, Switzerland)

  • Used to be a model, is now a fashion designer taking the couture world by storm
  • Pretty as hell, knows it
  • Will design competition costumes and/or gala outfits for “figure skating family friends”
  • Very business and to the point, unlike Christophe; the professional accomplished lesbian
  • Has dated a number of famous lady European celebrity figures? Like models, designers, singers, actresses, you name it
  • Super busy, so if she forgot something, it wasn’t intentional
  • Fashion blog, of course

Yuna Lee (Seoul, South Korea)

  • Taekwondo princess for the republic
  • Will kick your ass if needed, aka very protective of the friends she has
  • Is the mom friend, especially the one that will take care of you when you partied too hard (she will nag you for like three weeks after about how you owe her though)
  • Tomboy af
  • Is literally never cold and rarely ever gets sick (HOW?)
  • Korean rap (all day every day) for life, sends songs she really likes to Daniel to choreograph to
Grey’s Anatomy quotes each sign needs to hear

Aries: “Have some fire. Be unstoppable. Be a force of nature. Be better than anyone here, and don’t give a damn what anyone thinks. You’re on your own. Be on your own.”  - Cristina Yang

Taurus: “If you aren’t willing to keep looking for light in the darkest of places without stopping, even when it seems impossible, you will never succeed.” - Amelia Shepherd

Gemini: “We’ll try again and we’ll fail again because that’s what progress looks like. Progress looks like a bunch of failures. And you’re going to have feelings about that because it’s sad, but you cannot fall apart.” - Meredith Grey

Cancer: “People can be broken but what’s broken can be healed and no matter how dark things can get the sun is always going to rise up again.” - Meredith Grey

Leo: “If you love someone, tell ‘em. Even if you’re scared that it’s not the right thing, even if you are scared that it will  burn your life to the ground, you say it, and say it out loud. And then you go from there.” - Mark Sloan

Virgo: “Oh, screw beautiful. I’m brilliant. If you want to appease me, compliment my brain.” - Cristina Yang

Libra: “I think you can’t wait for someone to fly underneath you and save your life. I think you have to save yourself.” - Meredith Grey

Scorpio: “Not everybody has to be happy all the time. That’s not mental health. That’s crap.” - Meredith Grey

Sagittarius: “The people that are still with you at the end of the day, those are the ones worth keeping. And sure, sometimes close can be too close. But sometimes, that invasion of personal space, it can be exactly what you need.” - Meredith Grey

Capricorn: “It’s good to be scared. It means you still have something to lose.” - Richard Webber

Aquarius: “A little coffee. A little sunlight. Your troubles will get smaller.” - Richard Webber

Pisces: “Don’t let what he wants eclipse what you need. He is very dreamy, but he is not the sun. You are.” - Cristina Yang

lord of shadows snippet

They were far out from shore now—it was a shining line in the distance, the highway a ribbon of moving lights, the houses and restaurants along the coastline glimmering. “Well, as it turns out, my parents didn’t die in the ocean.” Emma took a shuddering breath. “They didn’t drown.”

“Knowing that doesn’t wipe out years of bad dreams.” Julian glanced toward her. The wind blew soft tendrils of his hair against his cheekbones. She remembered what it felt like to have her hands in that hair, how holding him had anchored her not just to the world, but to herself.

“I hate feeling like this,” she said, and for a moment even she wasn’t sure what she was talking about. “I hate being afraid. It makes me feel weak.”

“Emma, everyone’s afraid of something.” Julian moved slightly closer. “We fear things because we value them. We fear losing people because we love them. We fear dying because we value being alive. Don’t wish you didn’t fear anything. All that would mean is that you don’t feel anything.”

“Jules—” She started to turn toward him in surprise at the intensity in his voice, but paused when she heard Cristina’s footsteps quicken, and then her voice, raised in recognition, calling:

“Mark!”
