i'm trying games

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~!

BOOKS READ IN 2016: the hating game by sally thorne

I have a theory. Hating someone feels disturbingly similar to being in love with them. I’ve had a lot of time to compare love and hate, and these are my observations.
Love and hate are visceral. Your stomach twists at the thought of that person. The heart in your chest beats heavy and bright, nearly visible through your flesh and clothes. Your appetite and sleep are shredded. Every interaction spikes your blood with adrenaline, and you’re in the brink of fight or flight. Your body is barely under your control. You’re consumed, and it scares you.
