happy happy birthday to one of my favorite fictional characters of all time

A LIST OF SWAN QUEEN FAN FICTION

B/C I KNOW Y’ALL ARE TIRED OF LOOKING FOR SWANQUEEN FANFIC RECS ON TUMBLR SO HERES THE GOOD SHIT.

  • all of these are in english
  • if you have any recommendations or additions, please let me know!
  • some fanfictions that i originally planned to include on this list were deleted by their authors :( 


CLASSICS (favorites)

The Art Of Being Extraordinary - if you haven’t read this already, wyd? The ending will destroy you - be prepared to cry. 

Letters From War - another extremely well known fic among swen. a heart-wrenching and beautifully written AU fic. even if AUs aren’t your thing, seriously, give this one a try.

Emma is a soldier on reserve in Fort Benning. Regina is the Mayor of Storybrooke. Through a pen pal program designed to ease the ache of homesick soldiers, Emma and Regina begin sending letters to one another as their relationship grows from cordial acquaintance to something neither woman would have expected - until the letters stop coming.

A Trail Of Destruction - DEFINITELY a classic imo. this is one of my favorite fanfictions of all time.

A hostage situation in City Hall leaves behind a battered, broken sheriff, and a mayor wracked with guilt. Trigger warnings for violence and gun threats and general angst. Slow-burn swan queen.

Miles To Go - AU; emma and regina meet at a party and the rest is history. this ones pretty long (80 chapters), but so worth the read! angsty & lots of ‘sexy times’ 

Everyone has their own story, this one is theirs and it paints the picture of a love story that spans over two decades, with all the ups and downs and everything else in between. SwanQueen AU
 

Of Love and Loathing - a lot of angry sex in the beginning, which eventually turns into lovey sex. another well known and well written fic - this author is one of my favorites. *reaaallyyy hot smut 

“I have been sleeping with someone,” Regina began tentatively, an acute awareness that once she said the words out loud that the madness behind her highly unorthodox situation became all the more real, “whom I absolutely loathe.” •Emma/Regina•

Meet me Halfway - one of the first swan queen fan fictions i ever read! still a classic to this day. AU

Emma Swan works hard every night as a bartender, struggling to raise her son and save up enough to own her own bar. Regina Mills is an upper class New York photographer who wouldn’t normally spare a second glance at people below her. When their paths cross, their lives adapt to each other, but how much are they willing to change?

Love Undefined - in the process of re-reading this one because of how much i love it. angsty as hell but such a beautiful story.

It’s been eight years since the last time Regina and Emma saw each other, eight years since Emma lost part of her happiness, her family, and everything fell apart. But she hasn’t forgotten those three years in New York, or any of what Regina had brought into her life. A late night phone call to Regina takes Emma back eleven years to when they met, saved each other from loneliness, and Emma started learning what it meant to live. She relives the moments that had changed her life for the better, and even the ones that had hurt.

Teacher’s Pet - KNOWN AS THE ONE TEACHER/STUDENT FANFIC THAT EVERYONE HAS READ. 

Emma Swan is starting her senior year. Her friends tell her about the Creative Writing teacher that she has on her schedule and how no one had passed her class with an A, not even her bookworm friend, Belle. What will she do? And who exactly is this ‘bitchy Evil Queen’ as they claim her to be? SwanQueen. Student/Teacher. M for language and future chapters.

Lost in Translation - i wasn’t sure about this before reading it but i LOVED it. the description pretty much sums it up.

AU. Regina is deaf. Emma is the only one who refuses to give her pity. In response, Regina is thrilled by this new challenge and the stand-offs commence, but over time she finds out there is more to the blonde woman than just a target to throw a stinging quip and pointed glare at.

Send Up a Signal - emma and regina are actresses and their fans ship them with each other. ;)

Emma Swan is catapulted into stardom, the newest lead actress on a sanitized show featuring modern fairytales. Regina Mills is a long-undermined star with a chip on her shoulder and a thousand reasons why she’s invested. Naturally, they loathe each other on sight.Their characters’ fanbases, however, have other ideas.

Reset - SO. GOOD. 95 chapters. if you’re looking for long fanfics, this is for you. 

Following the breaking of the curse everyone in Storybrooke is finding their happy ending, with one exception. Resigning herself to having lost Henry’s love and respect forever, Regina decides there is only one path available to her.

Take Me Home Tonight - AU!! lots of smut :) this is a newer one that i’ve seen around twitter and tumblr and i really enjoyed it! this one’s pretty short (14 chapters)

AU: Nineteen year old Emma Swan is a senior at the exclusive all girls boarding school, Foxhaven Academy. When her friends find out she’s a virgin they send her to the city to find a guy to take her v-card. But Emma is more interested in a sexy older woman she meets in a bar. A SwanQueen story.

The Staircase - non-consensual sex in the first chapter, so please be aware of that; its not for eveyone. this story is very dark but has a happy ending i promise!

Regina could still smell her cologne and feel the cheap pleather pressing into her back. The brunette sucked in a breath. She was still lying on the floor at the staircase’s base and she stared back up at it. Everything was different now. Changed. She felt broken by what had just happened, appalled and enraged, dirty. WARNING: NC17 for non-consensual sex. Dark. (But gets lighter.)

the trouble with emma - very very well known within the swan queen community. i’ll be honest, i never really got into the story but i can acknowledge that it is the most well-written fanfiction i have read to date. the author is truly talented. (the first in a series of fanfics)

Post ep 4x23, Emma becomes the Dark One and learns nothing is quite as it seems or as simple as black versus white. When Regina removes the curse no one in Storybrooke is prepared for the far reaching fallout which leaves none of their lives unaltered or untouched, least of all Regina’s.

SMUT 

shadow haven  - the one smut fic everyone has read.

Emma Swan is a PR agent who is sent on a holiday by her boss. Regina Mills is the owner of a private island named Shadow Haven. There is more to Regina than initially meets the eye. This story dips heavily into the BDSM subculture. Swan Queen romance / BDSM story.

the wicked stepmother - the one kinky fic everyone has read- or attempted to. i couldn’t get through the whole thing but the first few chapters,,, holy hell.

When the Evil Queen catches baby Emma along with Snow White, she decides on a new revenge. In Storybrooke, Snow White will be allowed to raise her daughter… but on her eighteenth birthday, Regina will come for her. Emma might just enjoy that.

in control  - Regina had never been in the habit of relinquishing control, but when it came to Emma Swan, she was starting to find out that giving in had its benefits. - Established Swan Queen - One Shot. Rated M for language and content.

the collar - It will carry strong mature themes as well as a Mistress/Slave relationship but it is also a lot more than that. However, as a warning this story will celebrate the shades of grey of our favourite couple as they find their way to each other and will deal with darker elements of their characters. Emma’s history differs a little from canon but will be covered by the story but there is no Henry and she is an adult in this fiction.

a little taste  - author of A Fine Line and Letters from War. 

Emma has been desperate to know what it’s like to kiss the smirk off of Regina Mills, but when she finally gets the chance, it doesn’t seem to be enough.

tempest - A storm ushers in an expected opportunity for Regina to finally rid herself of Emma Swan. She will posses the sheriff’s heart and then crush it. But what happens when nothing goes as planned? Rated M for language and Swan Queen sexytimes.

come on be nice - Regina has decided that the quickest way to get rid of Emma Swan is to scare off the commitment phobic woman with a come-on. This, as with many of Regina’s plans, does not go as, well, planned. Rated M for Swan Queen sex.

black lace - Emma and Henry find a way around the 'no visiting’ rule involving binoculars and the walkie talkie. Emma’s attention is fully on her son, she truly doesn’t intend to watch Regina at all. At least until the mayor begins undressing in front of her window..

dirty words - Regina is plagued by thoughts of a certain blonde. Deciding she is in need of cathartic release, she writes a quick narrative in hopes of cleansing her system. However, by a happy accident, the story falls into the wrong hands. What will Emma do with this new and intriguing insight into the mayor’s mind?

damn you, miss swan  Emma visits the mayor one night with a bottle of wine to cheer her up. Anger issues and smeared lippy ensues. WARNING: Includes a non-explicit passing reference to rape. This is my first story. A/N Jan 2015: Way back when I wrote this, no one knew anyone’s back stories, so I just made up stuff. Don’t be upset for canon divergence if you read it now. It wasn’t canon then.

mirror tricks The Evil Queen has made her way to Storybrooke, but she only seems to be interested in one thing: Emma. When Regina realises this, her jealousy starts to get the better of her.

my enemy’s enemy After her mother’s death, Regina finds a terrible surprise hidden among the witch’s belongings. Unfortunately, the only one able to cure her from the ailment is Emma…if she agrees. Strong language and mature themes. First stab at SwanQueen :)

ANGST

to remember her happy ending - “She doesn’t even remember her family! How am I going to explain this to her when she hates me!” She was falling apart now. The way the women in the other room had just looked at her, with such disdain. That wasn’t her wife. That was the Mayor, the Evil Queen maybe…but not her wife.

for endings are where we begin Regina Mills is your average working mom - she spends long hours at her bakery, loves her son Henry with all that she is, and can touch dead things and bring them back to life.Emma Swan is an orphan, an ex-convict, and a bail bondsperson residing in Massachusetts. She is also currently dead.This is the story of how they meet.

the loudest silence - New to Chicago Emma, a professional cellist, is shocked to find that a beautiful deaf woman is her new president of the board. As their friendship grows Emma begins to wonder, what does it look like when a world of sound and a world of silence meet somewhere in the middle? SwanQueen AU

broken 16 year Emma Swan is a preachers daughter on a tight leash, what happens when Regina Mills returns to town, dark, mysterious and dangerous? Will her father’s expectations take over or will Emma follow her heart? Is Regina legit or is Emma cute little pawn? Will Emma be able to love Regina for who she is or will her dark past ruin it ALL! SwanQueen G!P Some BDSM

bring her home Cora’s dead. Henry lives with the Charmings. Regina continues spiraling through grief and loss and hatred. Then Emma suddenly falls unconscious and Henry shows up at Regina’s door because he needs her help to bring Emma back. Reluctantly, Regina embarks on a wild swan chase through Emma’s mind, a whirlwind of ‘roads‐less‐traveled’ and ‘what‐ifs’ and ‘might‐have‐beens’, in order to bring her home.

if the blazer fits Emma decides to dress up like Regina for a Halloween party at The Rabbit Hole, a seemingly innocent decision that surprisingly leads to a relationship. The romance is openly feared by some and secretly despised by an unlikely source, who plots to end it.

a fine line Upon Regina’s banishment, the small town of Storybrooke becomes protected once again by an enchantment that prevents anyone from leaving or entering Storybrooke. Emma and Regina find themselves on the edge of the town, wishing for a way to the other side.

a pale imitation Regina is furious with Emma after she brings back Marian, but since she can’t take it out on her, Regina creates a mindless clone of Emma to hit instead. The clone doesn’t stay mindless for long though, developing an obsession with Regina. Written for summer 2014 Swan Queen Big Bang. (TW for sexual assault/rape and graphic depictions of violence)

FLUFF

one fine mess - Regina’s gut twisted with an agonizing pull and, for just a moment, she thought she might need to take up the same position as the woman crouched before her. “You’re pregnant?” she whispered grimly. Emma’s only response was to turn and retch into the toilet again. — Swan Queen, magic!pregnancy

coffee at midnight - (so good) Slow burn AU that starts with two women from different parts of the USA meeting on Twitter. Emma is an insomniac loner who is a Personal Trainer. Regina is a writer with a sleepless baby. Their lack of sleep and love for coffee soon brings them together and after that they find it hard to part. This is a fic where coffee is taking to mythical levels, despite it’s bad effect on people with insomnia and people with babies - showing that sometimes what you need and want isn’t always the thing that is wholesome and harmless. But also that denying yourself it will only lead to misery, something which Regina has to apply to other parts of her life.

all the single ladies With the library in desperate need of renovation, Storybrooke prepares for a fundraising dinner and bachelorette auction. What mischief and romance can be found as a result? SwanQueen with some RedBeauty Rating has been raised to M - now including adult content.


TEACHER+STUDENT / EMPLOYEE+BOSS

teacher’s pet - see above (classics)

take me home tonight - see above (classics)

step into my office, baby  - This is what you get for doing the nice thing, Emma thinks. You do that whole Pay It Forward bullshit - you buy a lady some coffee and you pretend like it isn’t totally motivated by how she looks in a pencil skirt - and she goes and insults your business card and turns out to be your company’s new Executive Director. Real fucking cute.From now on, she is drinking tea.or, the one where they’re in an office.

teaching miss mills  - Swan Queen Teacher AU: Emma is a gym teacher, who moves to Storybrooke Academy after becoming disenchanted with her job back in Boston. Regina Mills is the Head of English who Emma somehow seems to keep having run-ins with, despite the best of intentions. Along the way, Emma adjusts to small-town life, gets her teaching mojo back and grows closer to Regina. NOW COMPLETE

troubled teachers - COMPLETE! SwanQueen AU. Geography teacher Emma Swan starts a new life far from her troubled past and meets history teacher Regina Mills. But all is not as it seems when it comes to the composed, intelligent, and beautiful brunette. Family struggles and difficult relationships lead to a friendship and soon something more blossoms. Rated M for Ch 7, 18, 22, 24, 28, 29, 31, 35 and 38

not a virgin anymore When college student Emma Swan wakes up one morning with no memory of what happened the night before she’s very surprised she finds herself in professor Mills’s bed. 

is that so, miss swan? - College student, Emma Swan, is confronted by her favorite professor and secret heart-throb, Dr. Regina Mills. What happens when Emma is forced to reveal her secrets? We shall see. AU. Slightly OOC at times. No magic. SwanQueen. Rated M for serious language and eventual sexy times between our two favorite ladies.

butterfly effect - in her final year of college, Emma finds she has more to account for than the extra credits she needs in order to graduate. Only… she doesn’t expect it to come in the form of her newest instructor, Professor Regina Mills. Complete. AU Swan Queen

a sophisticated seduction Emma’s a college student, working as an intern at the Dazzle Magazine for a powerful woman she has never had the good fortune of meeting. But everything in her life is about to change when they finally meet. Especially when one falls so deeply in love with the other and the insecurities from a broken marriage comes to light. (Not Based on The Devil Wears Prada)

some other faves

down east decisions - Massachusetts State Police Capt. Emma Swan leaves her red-hot career to become the police chief of sleepy Storybrooke, Maine. She’s hoping for a less-complicated, less-dangerous life, a desire that is dashed on both counts. AU. No magic. Crime drama and romance. Swan Queen is endgame.

that drunken night - Emma’s wasted and accidentally calls Regina instead of her mom. And Regina isn’t as loathe to talk to the blonde as she usually pretends. Did things change between them so radically while they were in Neverland? (No copyright infringement intended.)

chasing henry - SQ. Tired of the tricks and lies of both of his mothers, Henry follows the dwarves, Red and Granny when they use Tiny’s magic beans to return themselves to their old land. Emma and Regina both chase after him, and they reluctantly travel together through the Enchanted Forest in order to find him and bring him back home safely.

so does this make us both the other woman? - Set after 3b in a peaceful Storybrooke where Regina is with Robin and Emma’s fallen into a relationship with Hook. Shame about all that subtext that’s rapidly threatening to become text.

Top 10 Onodera x Takano moments

So, I made a Top 10 Dantalion x William moments a few weeks back, and ever since then it got me thinking that I wanted to make a top for my favorite couple in all of fiction as well. Takano and Onodera mean a lot to me, because I just love their relationship so damn much. I love the way it’s portrait, I love the slow buildup, I love the way the characters are handles, … and they just looks so damn gorgeous together (exhibit A is above XD). So, yeah, this list will be purely me being a fangirl and squealing a lot… hope you enjoy XD

Keep reading

Happy Birthday, @damelola! May this year be extra special for you. Please enjoy some birthday messages as well as some fanworks we have made for you.

@krystalgoderitch:

Thanks for all the porn 😘

@kuromikoneko:

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO THE MARY POPPINS OF FANDOM, LOLA. I am so glad you write for SuperCat and you write them so brilliantly! I love how interwoven and beautiful The Ballet AU is with both show canon things and freakin’ THEATRE THINGS!!! My two weaknesses right now (aside from Sanvers being adorable cuties). I’m also super glad that we’ve gotten the chance to talk this past month or so. It’s absolutely Mayka’s fault (as it always is, eh?) but has been a fantastic experience getting to know you and to bond over our mutual dislike of the other fandom, of our love and devotion for theatre and our thoughts on SuperCat.

@lost-your-memory:

Happy birthday Lola!

You are the most precious person I ever came across within the Supergirl’s fandom. You have a unique way with words and it makes you such an incredibly talented writer, sometimes I can’t believe how good your fictions are. Every single one is different but it’s deep and perfectly crafted and it echoes in me in ways I couldn’t possibly find elsewhere. I don’t have a favourite because all of them are pure gold but lately, I’m very invested in The Music and The Mirror. Thank you for everything.
You are a caring, kind, sassy and absolutely amazing soul and I’m fangirling over your existence.
You are a beautiful person, Lola.
Joyeux anniversaire ♥

@mitski:

happy birthday lola! you deserve all the fun and goodness in the worldd. i love all your fics!! thank you for helping keep the supercat fandom sane <3 <3 <3

@octoplods:

Happy Birthday Lola from Octo!!  Thank you for being an absolute blessing and sharing your incredible writing with us, giving us hours and hours and HOURS of glorious absorbing worlds and entertainment. Have an AWESOME day and be merry!!

@pinkrabbitpro:

Happy Birthday!

Many thanks for all your wonderful efforts in fandom, both creating great stuff for us all to enjoy and share, and helping and encouraging others.

So here’s hoping you enjoy a year of health and happiness. Much luck to your new book and any other new stuff you grace us with, and may you have many more years of creativity and fun to come! Also many more memes because…Cat Grant and her pen definitely was a hit!

Good luck and much happiness in all you do,
PinkRabbitPro (Barb)

@poppyssupergirl:

Happy Birthday Lola,

One of the first fics I read in the Supergirl fandom was So I Can Call (Just to Tell ‘Em I’m Fine). Needless to say, I was hooked. Your writing style is glorious. I always look forward to your stories; I’ve seen very few writers who understand their characters so completely. Your writing was one of the reasons I started writing again. I do hope you enjoy this birthday surprise and thank you for all you’ve given this fandom.

-PoppysSuperGirl

@residentgeekmonkey:

Happy birthday, Lola! I hope your birthday is as awesome as you. I absolutely love everything you write. You never fail to amaze me with your words inside fic and out.

I reread Asking Too Much probably too much, haha. But I still get chills reading it. Honestly I’m still not over chapter 17. Chapter 17 has gone down in history in my book and will forever be iconic to me. And I still laugh so hard every single time I read the ‘See ya!’ line by Alex at the end. Always has me cackling. The way you wrote Kara fully embracing Supergirl and starting the Supercenter, god. It’s freaking GENIUS. It’s so unique to everything else I’ve read. I still stumble and get mindblown thinking about it and rereading it, that storyline is just so brilliant.

I’ve never gotten around to writing my own fics, but I remember when I was really thinking about writing, you were so supportive and offered your help if I ever needed any. Thank you so much for that.

I really appreciate just how genuine you are and enjoy how outspoken you are. You truly are amazing and hope your birthday goes awesome, you deserve it. Happy birthday, Lola <3

@rtarara:

Lola,

Happy Birthday! May it be filled with things as fabulous as you are though that will be super hard because that is a very short list of things. All the best in the coming year. I love you muchly and am glad I get the chance to know you. Also I’m glad that I get to read the rich worlds and stories that you create. It’s consistently amazing and I’m happy it’s being recognized with your snazzy new book deal :D  

XOXO
Bex

@spaceshipsarecool:

Happy birthday Lola!! I hope you have a wonderful day and get to eat all the cupcakes. My favorite fic of yours is With An Open Hand, because I love the playful version of Kara who is not afraid to push further with Cat to get what she wants… and also for the pen!kink, never forget the pen!kink :P

Of course I love all your other supercat fics as well. The Music and the Mirror is brilliantly done, and I get so excited for each update. Thank you for all the time you spend writing and headcanoning and overall spreading the supercat joy. And once more, happy birthday!

-Trish

@subcutaneous7:

Happy birthday, Lola! Thank you for all of the beautiful work you share with us, for the insight and energy you bring to the SuperCat fandom, and for being such a kind and supportive person. Your writing and your presence are deeply cherished. Hope you have a great day and the best year yet to come.

@supercat-trash:

Lola, happy birthday. Again, I want to say thank you. Your kindness and never-ending support made it possible for me to get the confidence and post my work on AO3 and Tumblr for the world to see. You are a fantastic fanfic writer and an all around amazing person. You are a wonderful human being and I’m so glad that I have the pleasure and privilege to have met you and talked to you. Honestly, the world could use a lot more people like you in it. I hope you have a fantastic birthday. You’re the absolute best and you do so much for everyone around you, even strangers who you meet in passing. Happy Birthday, Lola. I hope its a good one!

@thetemptationisstrong:

I hope you have a wonderful birthday Lola! I’m a big fan of your writing. I especially love how you come up with new and exciting ways to bring Kara and Cat together in your stories. Thank you for sharing your gifts and amazing talent, and for all of the things you do for this fandom. :D

@writetherest:

Dearest, Darlingest Lola,

According to Facebook, we have been friends for over 7 years. Honestly, that surprises me because it feels like we’ve been friends for as long as I can remember.

I truly don’t have the words to tell you what you mean to me or how grateful I am to Dolly or whatever other deity it was that brought us together. I just know that without you, my life would be very, very different. And not in a good way.

We have shared so much over the years. Stopping shows, football in gay bars, your wedding (!!), pokerverse, and all things in between. You are a brilliant writer that everyone in the fandoms you write for is lucky to have and someone who I am so happy I can text at all hours of the day and night to share fic ideas, fandom theories, or just anything that is on my mind. You are snarky and won’t take shit from anyone and you’ve helped me to grow a backbone and be more outspoken myself since I’ve known you. And in the last year, you have been the most wonderful, supportive friend when I needed one the most.

Thank you for always being there for me. I love you to the moon and back, from Mirandy to 9 to 5 to Swan Queen to Supergirl and beyond. I hope you have the most wonderful birthday and I cannot wait to get to see your face in real life and squish you like crazy in like two months.

Love, love, love, always,

Tiff (aka writetherest, but you better freakin’ know that!)

@xxtorchxx:

Lola, 

Happy birthday, sugar lips! I am so glad that once again two fictional characters pushed us together in another fandom. The trash bin has been great and I’m so glad I’ve gotten to know you better. You are one talented, sassy lady. I hope this year is the best yet, with many more to come. I heart your face!! <3 - Torch

This post is to wish one of my all-time favorite fictional characters a happy birthday. Sam sure goes through a lot, but no matter what he keeps fighting, and he always does his best to help people. There are so many things about Sam that make me proud of him. I’m forever grateful that Eric Kripke thought up this wonderful character.

Do you have any advice for people who want to write, but feel afraid or not good enough? Not necessarily writing fanfic, but writing in general? I’ve got so many ideas for stories, and I have so much fun planning them & daydreaming about them, but when it comes to the writing, I just freeze up. :/ Thank you!!! :* <3

I received this ask today, and I’m responding to it without the person’s name, in case they don’t want to be attached to it. But I wanted to share my response publicly because I’m betting what you’re describing is something many people feel, and others may have their own insight to contribute (very possibly better than what I can offer).

I don’t have an easy answer. I can tell you my story, though, and what’s currently working for me. Spoiler alert before I start: you are not alone. What you’re feeling is totally normal for someone who loves writing. I wish it wasn’t, but self-doubt pretty much comes with the territory. The secret, if there is one, is to learn how to recognize that, and push through anyway, even on the days when it’s really, really hard.

I’ve been writing since I knew that writing was A Thing People Can Do. I was the kid who always had a notebook on hand; when I was in places (like church) where it’d be frowned upon to be overtly writing one of my stories, I’d scribble ideas down on scraps of paper I stuffed into my pockets and tried to rearrange into plots once I got home. 

I wrote terrible, formulaic stories when I was a kid. The one I thought at the time was going to be my masterpiece (I really believed in myself back then) was a pretty blatant rip-off of The Black Stallion Returns. (But my horse was red and the opening scenes were in my carefully described neighborhood, so it was different, see.)

I kept writing through high school, filling up more notebooks, and swapping them with my fellow writer friends during our lunch hours, so we could exclaim over each others’ stories and encourage each other to keep going. I wrote a lot at this time, including two “novels” that were each over 400 handwritten pages.

They were terrible. Better than what I wrote when I was in elementary school, but still badly plotted, predictable, and frankly pretty embarrassing to look back on now.

I have those notebooks (and binders) stored in a box under my bed, and I think sometimes about shredding the evidence, in case I ever manage to get published, and someone finds out what an awful writer I used to be. But I haven’t (yet), because the truth is, I loved writing every single one of those pages. I loved daydreaming new scenes, bits of dialogue, dramatic moments that tugged at my emotions. I loved sprawling on my bed or sitting at my desk and transferring these thoughts to physical form.

It didn’t really matter that my dialogue was stilted, and my characters were wooden. What mattered was that it was fun. I still have incredibly fond memories of that point in my life, and I wish I could go back to the pure enjoyment I felt back then, when I didn’t have a doubt in my mind that I was going to be a published author.

I think that’s an important thing to remember. The act of writing, on its own, is worthwhile. The way it makes you feel is important. The joy you get from crafting your ideas and seeing them take shape on the page: that’s a gift you shouldn’t shy away from.

The end result doesn’t have to be good. And it probably won’t be, not right away. That doesn’t make you a bad writer. That makes you a normal writer. There isn’t a single writer out there who believes that everything they’ve ever written is amazing. Not even the biggest, brightest, most incredibly talented, critically acclaimed authors you can think of. (If they do think this, they’re (a) a douchebag and (b) delusional.)

Your writing improves as you continue to write. That’s how it works. It’s like anything else: playing an instrument, being an athlete. You won’t wake up one day and win a race, or play a flawless solo at a concert, unless you’ve put in the work to get yourself there. You probably won’t write an award-winning story your first time putting pen to paper. Maybe you will, over time. Maybe you won’t. 

But you know what?

That doesn’t matter.

What matters is that you have a brain teeming with creativity, and you want to tell your stories. So you should. That’s reason enough, and I can tell you from experience that when you hold yourself back out of fear or self-doubt, all you’re doing is making yourself unhappy.

luanna255  asked:

Rena, I think this idea will be relevant to your interests: I was watching the scene from The Force Awakens the other day, where Finn is telling Rey about how he was "raised to do one thing. But my first battle, I made a choice. I wasn't gonna kill for them. So I ran" and it hit me: You could draw some serious parallels between him and Cass, couldn't you?

Oh.

my god.

It’s all coming full circle. My loves are uniting. My mind is blown! And this makes, officially, one of the best things I could ever talk about on May the Fourth! I cannot thank you enough for this, Lu!!!

Two of my fictional children’s arcs are united and I didn’t even realize it or how powerful it is and I just aghhhhh! I’m so happy right now. 

I also want to make a note that this is mostly a limited thing because I haven’t gotten to see TFA since it was in theaters and haven’t bought it yet because I’m at least fairly certain if I buy one more thing for myself before my birthday this month my parents will throw their shoes at me when I come home because I’ve ruined all their ideas thus far.

Okay, so let’s look at those parallels: 

* Cassandra Cain was raised from birth to be an international assassin by her father. Her limited social exposure and dependence on him led for her to be oblivious throughout her upbringing that what she was being trained to do, while giving her impeccable skill important to her adventures later in life, were very much intentioned to make her do the very things her innate moral character was against. 
* Finn was taken by the First Order when he was too young to even remember a life beforehand. He was raised as a Storm Trooper and heavily trained and indoctrinated, especially by Captain Phasma. He was trained in skills that he was expected to use for the First Order’s advancement, including doing things as a soldier that would be against the innate moral character that was within him. 

* Cass was fully involved and even loved the lifestyle she had been raised in, showing extreme loyalty to her father, until the day she was first used for an assassination. From the moment it happened, Cass knew right from wrong and lashed out against the system she had been subjected to, running away and experiencing a life long guilt over what had been done. She dedicated her life to saving others at that point. 
* Finn was fully indoctrinated by the First Order and consistently showed signs of being an ideal Storm Trooper during training, having top marks with shooting. That is until he was deployed to Jakku and witnessed the slaughter of a village as well as the deaths of some of his fellow troopers, shaking Finn from the conscious grip of the Order and inspiring him to save a Resistance pilot and run away. 

* Cassandra (though later retconned) was initially given her name by the vigilante Oracle aka Barbara Gordon, who took her under her wing during a time of great crisis for the Bat Family (No Man’s Land), and was an example of their bonding and giving Cass reassurance that she was more than what she had been trained to be. 
* Finn (originally FN-2187) was given his new name by the freedom fighter and ace pilot Poe Dameron, who was indebted to Finn for aiding in his escape and immediately took Finn under his wing during a time of crisis (escaping the First Order and Kylo Ren). It was an example of their bonding and giving Finn reassurance that he was more than what the First Order trained him to be.

Like. These parallels are so amazing and I’m so happy with the fact that two of my favorite characters are going to have this arc that means so much to me oh my GOSH I’m so happy right now.

Oh. I almost forgot the most important parallel of all.

They both absolutely SLAY leather jackets like oh my god

I am so happy right now.

1LOVE - Chrianna Fan Fiction: Chapter 53 (Part 2)

Robyn POV


“Oh my God, look at your clothes. You’re so dirty.” I mentally complained, following my little jellybean around the backyard with my eyes. There’s no reason why she should be so messy but she’s so into rough play.
Ever since the fight, it’s been so awkward for everyone. Leandra and Dario are in their room still, deciding not to come out anymore I believe. Chris is just there on the grill, barbecuing for the guests. I bit my lip when I saw him take off his shirt and threw it over his shoulder. He’s so sexy even when he’s not trying to be sometimes. He plans on apologizing to Lele and her man, but I don’t know what he’ll end up doing. I’m so torn between standing up for my bestfriend or my man. What she did was wrong, but Chris went so hard on her. He really didn’t have to insult her as much as he did. I went to check on her but of course, she promised that she was fine but her attitude says otherwise.
“Mine!”
“No! It’s mine!”
“Stoooop! Mineee!” The balloon Reneè and Sebastian were arguing over finally popped and she ran inside. Sebastian fell on his butt, crying loud. Before Amber intervened, I quickly handed him a blue balloon and he stopped right away.
“Pumpkin, where are you?” I sang, entering the house. I could hear sniffling sounds but she was no where in sight. I checked underneath the furniture and found her little dramatic behind underneath the coffee table, facing the wall.
“Can you come out please?”
“No.”
“Please?” She rolled out, standing in front of me with an attitude.
“I’ll give you another one.”
“It mine!” I held her hand, escorting her out to the backyard once more. I unwrapped a balloon from one of the chairs, placing it in her hand carefully.
“Don’t let it go. And please, leave him alone. You have yours.” I advised, going to meet up with Chris. From afar, I saw him release smoke from his mouth. I rolled my eyes, annoyed at him smoking at his daughter’s birthday party but I understood why. He’s stressing or worried about something.
“Why are you smoking?” I questioned, noticing that he was stepping on it with his foot. He thinks I’m stupid, I’m convinced.
“What are you talking about?”
“You’re stepping on the shit right now. Don’t play with me.” I desperately nudged his body over, in order to see the cigarette but he wouldn’t budge.
“Don’t push me.. or else, I’ll push you back.”
“Weak ass threats.. You don’t scare me. But anyway, I saw you smoking and I know you’re doing it because you’re stressing. . about what?”
“Nothing.. Now go, please.” I decided to leave him to his problems, turning around on the heel of my sandals.
“DANCING COMPETITIONS! IT COULD BE JUST THE LADY ALONE OR AS A COUPLE!” Austin announced, placing the microphone down. All of a sudden, you see most of the women getting up and busting a wine.. I was shocked.
“Back that fat ass up on me.” His voice whispered into my ear, sending cold chills down my spine. He was behind me, pressing my body on his, leaving me no room to escape.
I rolled my hips slowly, placing my hands on his. I rested my head on his neck to see him grinning with his eyes closed. I purposely pushed up on his manhood each time I’d dance, hearing occasional gasps from him. Just then, the music became fast and I started going buck.

Drake POV


“Come here, don’t be shy.” I smiled, luring Robyn’s daughter over to me. She’s been standing a few steps away from where I’m sitting, staring directly at me shyly. Taking the tiniest steps, she gradually made her way towards me.
“What’s up?” I asked, opening my hand for her to slap. She gave me a high five, sitting beside me. She remained silent, just sitting there.. I analyzed this young lady and something about her screams her mother.
I brought out my phone to play Flappy Bird and she was instantly intrigued. She leaned over, watching me successfully dodge the pipes.
“You wanna play?” She nodded, and I carried her to sit on my lap. We both held the phone but of course, I gave her more control. She couldn’t even score a point but she kept trying.
Couples were dancing merrily right now. It was quite awkward because I’m with nobody but it’s ok. I wouldn’t want to do anything to mess things up with Christina. I gently shifted Reneè off me, in effort to go inside the house and find the bathroom.
“Oh f-” I began to exclaim in shock, not realizing that she followed me into the house.
“Hey.. What’s going on? Are you ok?” I questioned worriedly, seeing Leandra watching TV dryly.
“Yeah..” she sighed. I could tell she was lying but I wasn’t sure whether I should push it or not.
“You can talk to me..” I insisted, scratching my head. She nodded, staring at the TV but not watching what it was showing. I could tell that she was in deep thought.
“Hey, can you tell me where the bathroom is?”
“Down the hall and to the left..”
“Aight, thanks. Watch her please because I see she’s following me.” I smiled, walking off.

……..

By the time I returned, neither Leandra or Reneè were where I left them. They have to be in the backyard so that’s where I went. Indeed, they were there. Various baby cartoon characters were in all corners.. from the Backyardigans to Yo Gabba Gabba! The only reason I know who’s who is because of Sade and Spirit. As a matter of fact, where are they?
It took the familiar screams for me to find them running around. Both of them were dirty as hell, and Spirit had chocolate ice cream all over her mouth.
“Come here.” I caught them, pulling them aside.
“What uncle?”
“Look at how messy you too are. And come here Spirit, let me clean your mouth. No more sweets either, that’s enough.”
“B-b-but..”
“No buts.”
Sade and Spirit were upset but I’m sure Spoons wouldn’t be so happy to see them overdosing on sweets. He’s very hard on their dental care and weight.

Chris POV


“Ssssh, it’s fine. They’re not scary.” I tried to convince Reneè. She saw the characters and she instantly screamed.
“Scaredy cat. Stop crying so we can take pictures.” Robyn urged, not really caring. Each time I’d push her near Tasha (from the Backyardigans), it was like she was going to have a heart attack.
“You see, look at Nori, Bash, King, and Cali… They’re happy and taking pictures. You’re here being scared.” Robyn added.
“Don’t compare her to anyone else.”
“Get off your period.. I’m just saying.”
Eventually, she sucked it up and genuinely enjoyed the characters. She took a load of pictures and I was proud.
“Good job baby.” I complimented, plucking at her chubby cheeks. I was glad Robyn decided to give her a change of clothing before the pictures because my baby was looking dusty as hell.
“Mama, mama.” she squealed.
“What?” She pointed at hotdog on someone else’s plate.
“You want that?” I chimed in. She nodded, rubbing her big belly. I went to the grill and made her one, attempting to feed her. She pushed my hand away, folding her arms.
“You don’t want it?”
“Gimme!”
I handed her the hotdog, holding the plate beneath it. I watched her devour the thing, staining her hands to the fullest.
“Ugh, you’re so nasty.” She slid off me, dashing elsewhere. I didn’t know where she was going until I noticed her sitting next to him.
“Um?” I thought out loud.
“What?”
“Look at where Ren is…”
“Aw, so cute.” she shrugged. I don’t know but something about Drake being near what belongs to me doesn’t sit well with my soul. But I’ve started enough drama for the day, so I’ll just let them be. Besides, he was just reading a story to her and his nieces.

……………..

Robyn POV


“CAKE TIME! IT’S TIME TO CUT THE CAKE!” Austin shouted. The cake was already on the table and the candles were lit. It was getting late and I know that these people have places to be so I can’t just take up their time.
“Come here baby.” I carried Ren to my waist and wore her birthday crown on her head, standing in front of the cake. She was so astonished by the designs and the wavering candle lights. Everyone started crowding around, singing the birthday song:

HAAAPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU,
HAAPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU,
HAPPY BIRTHDAY DEAR RENEÈ,
HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU.

ARE YOU ONE?

“Yay!!!” I clapped. She was so shy from all the attention. I placed her hand on the handle of the knife, putting mine on top for safety reasons and made a cut in the huge cake. Chris and I ended up having to blow the candles out because she didn’t know how. Flashlights from cameras came from all corners. I hired my favorite photographer for this day because it’s such a significant moment.
Just then, she slammed her hand into the edge of the cake and grabbed it. I chuckled, watching her lick her hand.
“Anything for you baby, it’s your day.” I stepped away, allowing everyone to serve themselves.
“Are you crazy?!” I laughed, when she marked my nose with the cake in hand.
“I love you, I love you, I love you.” I smothered my baby with hugs and kisses.
“Mama!” she giggled, squirming at me.
“Don’t you squirm at me.” I smiled, leaving her alone. The bottles of Apple cider with small glasses came in for the guests to drink with their cake.
“This is really good. Where did you get it?” Kim K. said.
“A small bakery in the central part of LA.. I’ll text you the details.”
“Thank you.”
Slowly, the party came to an end. Families were leaving little by little, until the place became empty. Momma J and the rest of Chris’ family went back to their hotel, except Austin — he insisted on staying. It had to be about 8pm now. Rorrey, Rajad, and TJ were already helping me clean.
“Thank you guys.” I waved, entering the house. I didn’t realize how tired I was until I sat down and my legs ached.
“There you are.” I whispered, spotting Princess on the couch, sleeping. Her crown was still on and her face had cake smudges all over it. I found the nearest phone to me and snapped pictures.
“What a day, huh? I know you’re exhausted.” I lifted her lifeless body up unto me, rubbing her back.
“Let’s get you to the shower and in your jammies for bed..” I marched up the stairs carefully, stopping dead in my tracks when I heard Chris’ voice.
“I know, I’m sorry.. I just felt that what you did was so uncalled for because all she was trying to do is help.” he explained.
“Ok, but you call me all those names AND fight my nigga? Really?”
“I’m so sorry.”
“You’re forgiven.. Just don’t again, please. Just as I need to be more mature, you do as well. I’m sorry for being extra and running your guest away. I’m so protective over Robyn and her feelings because she really went through a hard time when she saw you and her together.. So when I see her, I feel she’s up to no good. The same way you feel about Drake..”
“I understand.. I’ll call her tomorrow to apologize on your behalf. Thanks Lele for taking time out to talk to me.. I felt horrible after it all happened.”
“It’s all good.. You got one more person to apologize to but I suggest that you do it later because he could still be unhappy and he’s asleep anyway. Good job on the party, by the way.”
“How do you know if it good if you barely got to enjoy it?”
“I did, from a distance.. It was dope.”
Tears formed in my eyes as I eavesdropped into my bestfriend and boyfriend’s conversation. I love them so much. This was such a big thing to do. I’m so proud of them.
I walked away, going off into Princess Brown’s room. I laid her on the bed, removing her clothes. I had her change her about four times today because she was constantly getting dirty. She reminds me of myself when I was younger — I was obsessed with rough play.
“I’m about to give you a nice shower.. I’ll need you to wake up.”
“Hm.” she moaned in her doze. I ran the warm water and sang to her during the bath:

Well, old Macdonald had a farm, ee-i-ee-i-o
And on his farm he had a cow, ee-i-ee-i-o
With a moo-moo here, and a moo-moo there
Here a moo, there a moo, everywhere a moo-moo
Old Macdonald had a farm, ee-i-ee-i-o
Old Macdonald had a farm, ee-i-ee-i-o
And on his farm he had a goat, ee-i-ee-i-o
With a baa-baa here and a baa-baa there
Here a baa, there a baa, everywhere a baa-baa
Old Macdonald had a farm, ee-i-ee-i-o
Well, old Macdonald had a farm, ee-i-ee-i-o
And on his farm he had a chicken, ee-i-ee-i-o
With a cluck-cluck here, and a cluck-cluck there
Here a cluck, there a cluck, everywhere a cluck-cluck
Old Macdonald had a farm, ee-i-ee-i-o
Old Macdonald had a farm, ee-i-ee-i-o
And on his farm he had a pig, ee-i-ee-i-o
With an oink-oink here, and an oink-oink there
Here a oink, there a oink everywhere an oink-oink
Old Macdonald had a farm, ee-i-ee-i-o

“Mooooooooo.” she cried.
“That’s for the cow.. We did that already.” I wrapped her around in her towel, taking her to her room. I dabbed her with powder, rubbed Vaseline on her lips, and dressed her in her favorite onesie.
“Look at you fighting your sleep.. Goodnight Princess.” I kissed her cheek, covering her with her blanket.
I turned off the main light, leaving her room to go downstairs where everyone was. I didn’t realize that I barely ate either.
“Go fix me a plate please.” I sent Rajad to the kitchen.
“My feet hurt! Babe, come massage my feet.” I begged Chris. I noticed that he was irresponsive.
“Oh..” I realized, hearing a big snore from my king.
“You’re worn the hell out.. I don’t blame you.” I caressed his back, waiting for my plate from Raj.
“Here.”
“Thank you.” I received the plate, digging in immediately. Everything tasted so delicious. My mom and the caterers killed it.
“Wake up.. Go to bed, hun.” I shook Chris repeatedly, finally waking him up.
“Go upstairs sexy and take a bath before bed.” I winked, reminding him. My nigga was done.
“Ew.” I heard Rajad say.
“What?”
“Nothing.”
“‘Cause I called my king sexy?”
“Can you not?”
“One day, you’ll have someone calling you king too.”
“Whatever.” he glided off to the basement. I finished the rest of my food, taking the dishes to the sink.
Chris was done with his shower, by the sounds of it. I traveled straight to the bathroom because if I went to the room first, I’d just fall asleep right away, all dirty. I stripped naked and stepped into the bathtub, letting the lukewarm water rain all over me.
“And where am I suppose to lay sir?” I snapped, staring at Chris spread out on the bed. I threw on one of his T-shirts then threw his body to the side in order for there to be room for me. I turned off the lights, climbing unto the bed.
“Chrissss, I wanna talk..” I scooted closer to him, craving his attention.
“About what?” he grunted.
“Today, please.”
“Go ahead.. I’m hearing you.”
“I’m so proud of you for handling your issue with Lele like a man. I love you so much for that. The party was good.. What do you think?”
“It was popping.. I’m sure Princess liked it too.”
“Chris, your breath stinks.” I giggled.
“It smells like your pussy.” I couldn’t see him but I could tell he was smiling.
“Hush chile.. Go to sleep.” I kissed his shoulder, kneading his arms. The smile I had remained on my face until I remembered something —- Clinton never came.

Happy birthday Sassenach...

… he said.
It took me completely by surprise and I just stared stupidly at him for a moment. “What?” I managed at last.
“I said ‘Happy Birthday.’ It’s the twentieth of October today.”
“Is it?” I said dumbly. “I’d lost track.” I was shaking again, from cold and shock and the force of my tirade. He drew me close against him and held me, smoothing his big hands lightly over my hair, cradling my head against his chest. I began to cry again, but this time with relief. In my state of upheaval, it seemed logical that if he knew my real age and still wanted me, then everything would be all right.
Jamie picked me up, and holding me carefully against his shoulder, carried me to the side of the fire, where he had laid the horse’s saddle. He sat down, leaning against the saddle, and held me, light and close.”
Excerpt From: Diana Gabaldon. “Outlander.” iBooks.

This is one of my favorite images of Claire.  She is so exquisitely beautiful - like a painting by one of the Dutch Masters.  Happy birthday to Claire - a fictional character, yes, but a woman with such depth, grace, and goodness - I think we all strive to be more like her.

The Happy One

#17/18: Female Reader/Gender neutral F/C. Reader is someone who is all smiles all the time, fun, happy, giggly, and always there when you need her. One night however, Reader has a total meltdown in front of F/C, showing that behind all the sunshine and rainbows, she’s a total wreck whose afraid of pretty much everything and paranoid about everyone leaving her. In continuation of the female reader having a meltdown in front of F/C, F/C hugs her and let’s her cry, quietly murmuring words of comfort. (There can be a love confession in there and kissing if ya want) It would make my life for someone to write this so please? :D (from here)

a/n: Wowee wow you totally tickled my fancy here. Sorry this is so late but hopefully you’re still watching the blog! I think I can give you exactly what you want. If you want to Ponify this, just replace Fav/c with the name of your character and Your/n with your name. That will make everything capitalize properly. On a side note, I’m a bit disappointed to see that a lot of fics recently treat your favorite character as if they’re not a fictional character come to life, so I’m bringing that back here. This is a male favorite character, but a gender neutral reader.

Okay, I Googled it, and it means “one true pairing”?  Maybe?  I guess it’s a fandom thing.  I don’t really get into it and it’s something I’m glad people enjoy doing, but it’s not for me.  "Shipping" and fan fiction and fan art are things I “get” but wouldn’t ever do.  I like doing my own thing too much and don’t have any inclination to draw other people’s characters or really think about them (don’t take that as me saying there is something wrong with it, since I think people should do what makes them happy).

The last thing I googled was: I couldn’t remember production designer Dante Ferretti’s name, so I Googled movies I knew he worked on.

My most used phrases: “Ooph", “God dammit”, “Sigh”.

First word that comes to mind: CHICKNEN.  

What I last said to a family member: “I’ll never forgive you”, and then they all fell into a volcano so I’ll always regret my last words to them.

One place that makes me happy and why: Home, in my room, at my desk.

How many blankets I sleep under: Zero. I use a sheet. I’m never cold.

Favorite beverage: Ice tea or diet cola.  Cold drinks with caffeine that aren’t too sweet (regular soda is too sweet).

Last movie I watched at the cinemas was: I don’t remember. I don’t get to see movies in theaters much.

Three things I can’t live without: Work, family, if I had a dog then a dog would make the list.

Something I plan on learning: How to pay rent on time.  And Espanol.

A piece of advice for all my followers: Do whatcha wanna!  

And if ya spam or act like a jerk, don’t be upset if people unfollow. Just do things how you want to do them and don’t worry so much.  Post what you like and not what you hope others like.  If folks unfollow ya don’t want them anyways!

If you’re an artist, that goes doubly so… do art you like and not what you hope Tumblr will go for.  But at the same time, try not to be too angry if ya do stuff you like but others just don’t respond to it. It’s how it works!  Keep doing what ya do and the right people will enjoy it.

You all have to listen to this song: I don’t think everyone has to listen to it, but “White Rabbit” by the Jefferson Airplane has been stuck in my head (I never listened to them because I felt their 80s incarnation as “Starship” was so lame, but their 60s stuff is pretty good), along with “Basement Scene” by Deerhunter and “Mind Playing Tricks on Me” by the Geto Boys (it’s one of the best songs and videos ever).

My blog(s): Just “The Daily Doodles”, and the Spanish version called “El Garabato del Dia”.  My good friend in Spain translates the stories and poems for me :-)
