love is not a color photograph

2,500 Followers! Thank You!

Hey, kiddos! Now that we’ve hit 2,500 followers (thanks!!!!), I realized that you guys don’t know that much about the person behind this blog. So here’s a little bit about me!

  • My name’s Marissa but I’m open to nicknames
  • I basically like any color ever but especially mint, lavender, sky blue, and black
  • I love animals and live by the ideology that all dogs are cute dogs
  • I spend my time writing (obviously), photographing, reading, baking for my friends or classmates, and (binge)watching either Netflix or YouTube
  • I currently play the piano, but also used to play clarinet and handbells (and the recorder in third grade)
  • I love singing! (But I probably suck lol)
  • I literally have a catalogue for all of my books because I like being organized
  • I’m an avid musical theatre fan and my current obsessions are the Lightning Thief and Be More Chill
  • Besides Broadway,my favorite musicians are Pentatonix, Misterwives, Superfruit, Panic at the Disco, and Sara Bareilles
  • I always read at least three books at a time
  • I’m currently reading Diana Gabaldon’s Outlander, Leo Tolstoy’s Anna Karenina, Kevin Kwan’s Crazy Rich Asians, and Marie Kondo’s Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up
  • I love makeup but I’m terrible at actually doing makeup (@bookofreid teach me, you beautiful makeup goddess)
  • I wrote my first Spencer Reid x Reader fic on Sept. 25 of last year
  • I have a photography account on Instagram and Tumblr with the username of @marihophotography if you want to see some of my visual arts

To anyone who’s thinking about writing fanfiction, I say for you to just go for it! Especially in the Criminal Minds fandom, everyone is really sweet and supportive of the other writers. Even if you don’t think that your work is amazing, I promise that someone will. So go on and write, my kiddos!

Special thanks to @dontshootmespence, @bookofreid, and @reiding-and-writing for being total inspirations. Another special thanks to @milkandcookies528 for being so supportive with all of my fics! One last special thanks to @noizydog, my best friend who always supports my Criminal Minds obsessions.

I love all of you! Thanks for following me!
