honesly wondering whether or not to throw racial issues into lem n toi’s story like…. dawg toi would be like an arab dude living in like colorado he’d probably have somewhat of a rough time?!?! his hijab-wearing sisters would if anything.. but IDK like i want to bring attention to the discrimination being faced by middle eastern ppl but idk if i should w/ this particular story iunno iunno.
ALSO WTF big change but i kind of feel the need to fucking change toi’s stupid ass name?!?!?!?!? like i love him, i love his stupid name it’s charming but at the same time it’s just TOO dumb. i feel like i could .. idk give him a real actually like ARAB SOUNDING NAME.. and have toi be like what everybody called him as like a nickname or something IDK IDK!!!!!! tell me wht u think bc i’m honestly going thru w/ it unless anybody’s got any objections.
A few WiPs of a few pieces that I’ve been going back and forth on during free time to actually try and complete one day.
I know I have a really bad habit of just posting WIPs instead of well…finishing things. (whoops)_(┐「ε:)_ But I’ve found that it’s an easier way to keep me slightly motivated when I don’t have deadlines. Doesn’t help that I have the attention span of a little kid in a toy store. And I love looking back at them to help pick out mistakes or things to go back and work on later.
Omg I love this meme. Can I ask two? (I've noticed you give v in-depth answers, so if that's too troublesome never mind at all): CoT, #12 and #14. -- xoxo, goodboots (who foolishly forgot her Tumblr password)
Certainly, old friend! You’re not the first person to ask for two.
12: What do you like least about this fic?
The thing I like least about this fic is one and the same as the thing I like most about it: how long it’s taken me to complete it. I started writing this series in 2005, but it didn’t really pick up significant pace until 2010 - 2012. Now, here we are in 2017 with one more story to go. The context in which I resent CoT’s longevity is the realization that I’ve completed much longer works (The Series / Book of Hours is a great example) in less time. CoT is at this point in time around 232,000 words, and the series I just cited is over 300k and took me only about 9 months. I end up telling myself I’m capable of a lot more discipline than spreading 232,000 across 12 years. I can be unforgiving of my occasional inconsistency, but then I remind myself that CoT has served a function in my life unlike any other project to date.
14: Is there anything you want readers to learn from this fic?
Trying is the most important thing you can ever do. Trying is everything.
We throw around the word never likes its nothing but a small rose petal. The word never is a doubled edged sword. On one side it says ‘I will never leave you’ and on the other it says ‘I will never love you.’
