“Tell me what you think people say about you, and I’ll say if it’s true or false.”
“You’re just going to lie to make me feel better.”

I’ve had the biggest writer’s block since last November, so I haven’t been writing as much as I used to, and I can’t include the Childhood Friends AU I wrote for the Bluesey zine in this list, but here we go:
In which Gansey tries to solve crosswords at two o'clock in the morning and ends up talking on the phone to Blue about evil minds and assistant robots. This was my second Bluesey fic, and it was super easy to write.
Also, I don’t really enjoy writing dialogue (that’s something I struggle a lot with tbh, though I want to believe I’m slowly getting better). But when it comes to Bluesey, I always have so much fun writing their conversations. I like how this one in particular turned out!
Jack and Bitty’s relationship told through short dictionary entries. I wasn’t planning on writing something for every letter when I posted this here on Tumblr. But then I thought it’d be a fun way to try to figure out how to write Zimbits in my own style. Effort, Inevitable, Kingdom, Oh, Puddle, Quest, and Soar are probably my favorite entries.
Part one is Jack’s definition of happiness. Part two is Bitty’s. I especially like Jack’s, one of my favorite lines I’ve ever written is from that fic: “Jack is twenty-five, and he is in love with a beautiful boy with the sun in his smile.”
A tiny drabble in which Bram explores the idea of people being like houses. Even though it’s super short (I actually wrote it as a warm-up), I’m proud of this one, especially of the “Excuse the mess, I spilled some of my fears on the carpet last night” line.
“You are the worst savior in the history of the universe, Shepard. You didn’t do them the courtesy of dying on the job. A dead martyr is much easier to manage than a live hero. A dead martyr, you can prop up to be an emblem of any cause you want. A live hero is just damned inconvenient.”
Well, we don’t canonically know his birthday– which is disappointing considering the amount of flashback scenes that take place on that date, whatever it is– but we do get a couple of age references.
Batman and Robin #14, before Damian died.
And Batman and Robin #39, after he died and came back. Here’s the thing though– we also have this panel from Batman Incorporated.
That was pre-death too. If I had to guess, I’d say this is Bruce doing the dad thing where you level your kid up a few months before their birthday– which would mean that in current canon, either Damian just had a birthday, or it’s about to come up.
