They should not only have kept Tina as goth, but they should have developed that. They should have made even extremely small storylines out of her shyness. They should have let her sing solos by typical “goth” bands like Depeche Mode or Siouxsie Sioux. Hell, she could have been a makeup artist or a writer/poet, (I feel like she’d be more into that kind of thing than just performing) I just wish they didn’t turn her into Rachel. The uniqueness of her character made her more relatable, I mean they talk about how important it is that every kid has a character to look up to?? She was sooo cool in the earlier seasons, and I don’t believe she would have changed realistically.


Nostalgia is hitting me hard tonight. You guys get it, so no further caption needed.

Fic authors self rec! When you get this, reply with your favorite five fics that you've written, then pass on to at least five other writers (◠‿◠✿)

Okay, so this was harder than I expected. I’ve written relatively few fics, in only two different fandoms, compared to many fic authors who have a hundred fics spread over several fandoms. So I didn’t have to narrow down from an overly large pool of choices, but it was still hard. I like different fics of mine for different reasons, but that said, here are my chosen five, split between the Glee and Once Upon a Time fandoms: 


Just Another Gypsy (AO3) – This fic combined two of my fangirl loves, Glee characters and Broadway. Kurt is a recent college grad just starting out as a Broadway performer. (Can’t find the Tumblr post, but available on AO3.) 

Careful the Wish  (AO3) – Kurt and Blaine attend an adoption event. I think this one is close to my heart b/c kids and child-related issues are important to me, and I love the idea of Klaine starting their family through adoption. Fanart by @bowtiedarling. 

Between the Moon and New York City (AO3) – Set in a small town in NC, where Blaine is a local and Kurt is a visiting tourist from NYC. This is a WIP, with 12 chapters posted so far and 4 planned chapters remaining. Fanart by @riverance


Operation Labrador (AO3) – This was an RCIJ gift fic for @chrissykp, who requested “floof family fluff involving animals,” and I ended up having so much fun with that prompt. Rumbelle, dogs, almost all the Storybrooke characters working together for a common good…what’s not to enjoy? 

Love is a Locked Door (AO3) – Set during Belle’s first night free in Storybrooke, after escaping the asylum. Canon-compliant, works as a missing-scene sort of fic. I enjoyed getting into Belle’s mindset for this one. 

Precious Moments (AO3) – I couldn’t stand it, I had to give this one an honorable mention, so I’m listing six. This is a ficlet series that I recently started, that’s rapidly becoming one of my favorites to write. Each chapter is a stand-alone story, depicting an everyday moment in Gideon’s childhood that Rumple and Belle almost didn’t get to have. Shameless kid!fic fluff. Four installments so far, with several more prompts waiting to be filled. 

(I’ll tag people in their inboxes, after I put some thought into who hasn’t been tagged yet.) 

  • Friend: Hey why do you like that character so much?
  • Me: Are you sure you're ready for this kind of conversation
