Aaaaah why didn't I start reading A House Divided yet😱I'll surely look at it in these days, I already know it must be wonderful♡♡
Mawwwr, thanks lovely~. I can only hope so, haha. It is
starting off slowly right now but my fanfics usually do. My reader inserts had
to train me to cut out a lot of plot, and I find my own fanfic, A House
Divided, to be very therapeutic because I can actually take my time to develop
a story and characters. It’s only 3 chapters and each chapter is very small—roughly
7 or so pages long.
I don’t really publicize it much because I write it mostly for me, and I know this fandom can be a bit overprotective of Jacob Frye unless it’s a reader insert fic (it is upsetting that I don’t see more OCs in Syndicate because of that, but that’s how it is), so that’s why I just post it and say ‘enjoy it if you want to’.
For those late to the
show and not in the know:
The story is based on the ex-wife I mentioned and touched
upon in The Fall series. However, I hate just ‘making a character’ and then
dropping them into nothing, so I made Lindy my Syndicate OC to pair with Jacob
and be Emmett’s mom.
I don’t know how far A House Divided is going to go—it could
go all the way to Lydia’s birth, but it will touch upon many things we didn’t get
in the game or the novel, so mostly my headcanon of Jacob and Evie’s
upbringing, Ethan’s mother and the twin’s grandmother (whom was in the last
chapter), Cecily and Ethan, George a bit, the ‘unfortunate woman who lived next
door named Nellie’, the birth and raising of Emmett and his finding his wife
and having Lydia, and the deterioration of Jack. It’s not just ‘here’s my
OC/Jacob fluff and smut story’. I wanted it to be many things.
No sexual encounters in the story yet, but there will be
some as time progresses, thus the rating on AO3.
I’ve only drawn Lindy once, but I do hope to do her
character sheet and rough bio at some point. The only picture I had done of
her, I wasn’t too happy with it, but she does have super long hair (gets that
way as she gets older) that she often braids and buns partially upward and usually
has a flower crown of sorts
(because it was a festive image, I gave her a
holly crown and her hair is the same color as Emmett’s, it’s just deluded in
the lower picture because it’s a night scene)
. The flower crowns are ones she either makes herself or ones Jacob makes
as he gets older.
Thanks again for the loves who offered their support whether here or on AO3. Love you all muchly~!
