I’ve got a 101.5 degree fever and I keep on thinking like,,, what if Matt and Neil get on the same pro team. (I say, needing to finish up the ghost au and fill @mac-noa‘s prompt. i’ll get on that when I’m feeling better this is just entirely self-indulgent)
Matt hears Neil is transferring to his team and does a happy dance bc that’s his bro son
He offers to share his flat w/ Neil bc Dan is coaching another team farther away and so he lives alone in a place that two people could share
And Neil is like “Sure!” bc that’s his bro dad
And suddenly 90% of all of Matt’s social media is pictures of Neil Josten
“He’s so pretty today"
"Look at Neil he’s so great he won us today’s game!!!“
Can you tell us anything about your kylux hunger games fic your planning to write?
Yes, thank you for asking! It’s about Hux being raised by a very distant Brendol (my coldest asshole Brendol so far, I think) who was a Victor for District 2 in his youth. Hux’s older brother was also raised as a Career, and Brendol had more hope for him (Brendol Jr. was kinda lovable in this verse, Hux looked up to him ;_;), but he died in his Games and now Hux is about to compete at age eighteen.
Meanwhile, bloodthirsty lunatic Ben Solo volunteers to compete for District 12. Hux notices Ben’s almost supernatural fighting abilities and eerie calm in combat situations during the training period and decides to secretly align with him, though his fellow Careers think he’ll be working with them. Ben finds this amusing and agrees; Hux doesn’t trust him but is ~drawn to him, of course.
I have the whole thing plotted out and a really good title
(not a song title even, though I did steal it from another sort of media…)
and I’m looking forward to finally writing/posting—the only thing I’m waffling
on are the canon-equivalent identities of the other competitors in terms of how
dark I want to make this. In the draft I have started, Phasma is Hux’s fellow
District 2 Career competitor and Hux has no problems with the thought of
murdering her (or so he tells himself) asoidfjdo everyone is pretty terrible in
this. But I should try something different/darker anyway, I feel, and it has
some pretty great twists that I’m excited about… thank you for asking! Hoping
to start posting this one after I finish two other projects that are ahead of
it in ~the queue.
One of the major considerations given to the design of The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time was making sure that every object in the world could be interacted with in some capacity. From pots to the gossip stones to the seed patches, the world is made to feel full- but the best consideration given here is that some objects can only be interacted with in very specific ways. The world feels full, and alive, but not just a plaything for the player. Everything has a purpose.
