girl-&-dog

This is a little late in coming, but I wanted to make a painting to thank my amazing followers – all 32,000 of you!!  I meant to say thank you at 30k, but life has been super obnoxious and hectic lately.  If my apartment’s kitchen doesn’t spew my neighbor’s nasty rotten food water all over my floor anymore in my near future I’ll be (mostly) content. ;P

But anyway, when I have a bit more time, I intend to do another give away.  I’m thinking of holding another number guessing contest, but this time I’m going to give away a bunch of original fan art paintings (since I don’t sell fan art).  There will be some Steven Universe and Fantastic Beasts in the there, likely, so stay tuned and thank you all once again!!  You’re all the best!!!!

Guilty pleasure

Most people I know seem to have this deep-rooted hatred for it, but for some reason or other, I really dig country music. Its kinda my comfort food of music I guess. And no, Its not always just about a guy in a trailer crying over his dead dog, girl that left him, and truck that broke down. There’s some very touching love songs that really are my jam. Albeit my guilty one.

Needing a Little Help with my FanFic...

I have a Daryl/OC fic I’ve been writing for years which follows the TV series. Each part of the story follows each season. So of course, I’ve now come to where Negan has been introduced.

With my new found obsession with him I want to change the direction of my story a little. I want my character- Victoria Grimes- to be attracted to Negan. Not like him- seeing as he killed her friends- but there will still be that raw attraction between them. The kind you can’t control. You know what I mean.

The problem is, I don’t know how to put it in the story without making my character look like a traitor or slut (pardon the language… though this is a Negan page…).

Vickie is married to Daryl, they’ve even adopted a little girl and have a dog (because Norman wanted one, but he got a crossbow instead). I am completely devoted to Daryl, and won’t have Vickie leave him (for good at least).

She’s been through hell and back over and over, more than most of her people. She’s killed more than most of her people too, and unlike Carol she’s actually dealing with it. She’s a bad-ass, if I do say so myself, and Negan finds her sexy, intriguing and impressive.

When it comes to the fact that Negan killed two of her friends, she comes to understand that it was retribution for the thirty-odd people she and her people had killed. So- in time- she doesn’t forgive him but she understands to a certain point.

Which brings me to my problem. When I look to the future of my story, I see Vickie torn between the man she loves and the man she understands.

I guess what I’m trying to get at is… Is the grief of losing her friends, getting Daryl taken away, and being under the control of the man who has turned her life upside down, enough to make her do something she herself would never even think of doing in a million years? Can anger, hate and an emptiness growing inside her make her do something stupid and risky?

Sorry for the long question, I just really want to know what others think..
