okie dokie. so I have been avoiding margaery for a while. It was nothing that anyone did and it was really just all in my head . Many of you know how that goes. I was just getting stressed from work, stressed from my friendships outside of tumblr, stressed from dating, stressed from just a number of things and on top of that feeling like I wasn’t getting anywhere with Margaery. I wasn’t developing her the way I had hoped or had the plots that were really going to make me dive deep in her character. Everyone is such a brilliant writer and I just wasn’t up to snuff. I lacked conviction in why Margaery acts the way she does and she was so easily likeable but at the same time she’s supposed to be regal and just a scared sixteen year old girl. I also just loved having such complex relationships and I wanted more interactions with characters that I’m not sure how she’d even interact with ( but i knew they would be strong toxic or healthy relationships just because of their personalities in the books ).
i just didn’t have the muse then after. I tried to write but it was a constant state of oh my god this isn’t margaery enough . I was always so confident in my replies and how my aesthetic was and what she was at her core and every move she made and it just deteriorated. However I am now back, doesn’t matter what drama comes, doesn’t matter about the stress, doesn’t matter about the self doubt because … momma didn’t raise no quitter. I love just writing her and I need to write her more for myself and for the core partners i write with.
so this is me being officially back and off any type of hiatus starting this weekend.
