“What business do you have at my vacation home, woolly-ya?”


Mini Law! Look how totally not intimidating he is! 

Working on his hat made me want to throw my yarn so many times.

A couple of weeks ago, the lovely Morgan, aka @ive-always-been-a-pirate graciously answered some questions from her fans. Thanks Morgan!!

1) The chapter where Killian get his memories back strikes right in the feels. Was it hard for you to write it? What made you take this route?

I actually debated the exact way I wanted to write this chapter for a long time.  It was one of those chapters that I did an immense amount of writing and deleting.  I wasn’t sure if I was going to add Liam into the whole process, but Killian and his brother have always had such a strong bond in my mind so I couldn’t pass up the chance to have him be a part of Killian getting his memories back.  Ultimately, I wanted it to be a very emotional chapter that showed how much they overcame to be happy without his old memories - but in turn, allow him to have those back as a bonus.  I wanted it to reflect Killian’s realization of just how hard Emma fought for him and for them.  Adding the queen of hearts in was kind of a last minute thing that just tied it all together in a very fun little twist of fate.

2) What is the process of writing modern AUs? You have so many and yet you manage to keep the characters unique but still recognizable.

I pull a lot from real life situations as well as people I know and try to figure out how to work those little quirks into a CS storyline.  I try to blend Killian/Colin and Emma/Jen to different extents in each story so it hopefully creates a unique character that is realistic for the storyline.  I think it’s crucial to decide early on what relationships you want each character to have (who their best friend is, who they work with, any enemies they have, etc.) because that is where a lot of the backstory comes from.

3) Did you do some research about amnesia before writing MTAM?

Ha!  Yes I did do some.  It was actually a fascinating process - the human brain still perplexes me!  I read quite a few stories online about memory loss victims and coma patients who never regained their memories.  Every story was very unique and there were so many unexplained elements with each case of amnesia so it did give me some creative license.  I wanted the story to be realistic so I figured it was best to have some technical knowledge of the medical side of things.

4) Did you write the flashback scenes separately or were they written alongside the story?

The flashback scenes were a huge part of what inspired this story.  I wanted to have a lot of little sweet moments that I could use to help support Emma and Killian’s relationship as well as the reason why Emma wanted it back so badly.  I think the flashbacks were important because it showed how hard Killian had worked to win her heart and then we got to see her do the same in return after the accident.  For the most part, I wrote each chapter first and then came up with a flashback scene that mirrored what was potentially going on in the chapter (such as Killian’s feelings in the delivery room when Liam was born paired with the chapter on him meeting his son again for the first time).  I did have several flashbacks scenes planned from the beginning though so I did work those in where I felt they fit best.

5) Out of all your stories, which is your favorite?

Definitely a toss up.  ‘As Real As You Want It To Be’ is the story that really inspired me to take writing a little more seriously, but I’d say that ‘More Than A Memory’ was the most rewarding process.  It was truly an emotional experience.

6) Did you ever consider not giving Killian his memories back?

Oh yes - I warred with the idea the entire writing process.  I always joke with people who ask that I almost didn’t want him to have them back because it almost felt like Emma would be “cheating” on her new Killian with the old Killian haha.  In the end, I decided to have him remember because then he would get the chance to relive all of those moments up to the point of finally falling in love with her again.  It sort of added another dimension to their relationship.

7) What’s a good way of maintaining motivation for writing through a longer multi-chapter fic?

I try to have a key moment to look forward to when writing each chapter - that simple little goal really seems to help me keep moving when I am working on a longer fic.  I think it’s really important to create characters who have a bond that you can’t help but love, no matter how angsty or feelsy it might be.  I also have several people that tolerate me bouncing ideas off of them and also enable me to no end when it comes to writing multi chapter fics - that always helps!

8) Do you plot meticulously or just let it come to you with a few scenes in mind?

Honestly, the whole idea really snowballed - I didn’t intend on it being so long or so emotional when I first started it.  I plotted several of the really important scenes like their ‘first’ date/kiss and some of the little interactions with Liam, but a lot of it just kind of happened throughout the writing process.  I did have to plot certain things like them having another baby and the little things that happened while Killian’s brain was recovering (the medical side of things).  The timeline was the hardest part of writing this story - I really had to be careful bouncing back and forth between past and present.  I’m pretty sure there are still little errors here and there in the story!

9) Did you know how MTAM was going to end when you started writing it?

I knew that they were going to fall back in love, but I wasn’t sure exactly what the outcome would be of his memory loss when I started.  I wanted them to have a second wedding from the beginning too.  The new baby thing kind of fell into place unexpectedly, but I was happy it worked into the plot.

10) What’s your favorite part of the writing process?

I’d say probably those moments when you have that burst of inspiration and you just HAVE to write.  Although it is always fun to write something and then read it and think “wow, I totally nailed that line” too haha.  Ending a fic is always hard for me - I get separation anxiety when I’m writing final chapters!

11) How many chapters of your multi-chapter fics do you write in advance of posting? Do you write one chapter at a time as you go or have a good amount written?

I usually post as I go, but I often have little excerpts written for chapters that serve as a good starting point to get the ball rolling.  For this fic, I had several scenes written before I even posted chapter one so those sat in my drafts until I got to the chapter they were meant for.

12) What made you decide to go more for the feels with the plot vs. the angst feat you could have killed us with? (Thanks for not, btw)

Well, the fic was originally thought up while I was watching The Vow and I was never super thrilled with the path that movie took. I always felt like it was missing that romantic element except for in a few scenes and I felt like the idea of getting someone to fall in love with their spouse post memory loss would be such a fun twist for CS, especially since they’ve been through a few memory loss things on the show. Once I decided to add Liam into it, the plot totally had to take the feels route because I’ve got such a soft spot for Daddy Killian.

I’ll be honest with you guys, I want to focus more on my new blog than this blog here. I apologize, but I feel like since it’s a new blog, it’s a new start and I’ll actual enjoy answering asks without much worry. But hey I’ll still answer asks here! Again, if you want, go follow my pyro ask blog. That’s all I want to say folks, have a nice day!

anonymous asked:

What made you start shipping Zutara? I thought you didn't like that pairing in the past?

You’re right, I actually used to despise it! I started liking it recently, only a week or two ago when I started roleplaying with a Zuko ( @honxrable​ ). I thought our muses were just so cute together, and I kinda just ended up here! Now I’m proud to say I’m Zutara trash, even though it took me 10 years to realize it. (Don’t worry, I still ship Kataang. Like I’ve said in the past, nothing is more beautiful than Katara with her main hoes!)

anonymous asked:

Hi you Ashleee!!! I'm the Punta Cana anon :D So I'm here and I was enjoying everything and I found a free space so, What happened since the 1st? Nothing big? Thank youuu and I promise I will get you a shirt🙃

Not much big stuff babe! Paps were released of Louis and Danielle for her “birthday” that were very clearly taken a few weeks ago and the accompanying video was so laughably set up that they actually made the video private. Paps of Harry shopping in YSL and then Louis being spotted/taking fan pics in only his socks at a Subway not too far from the YSL. (Husbands had just got home from vacation and needed to be papped, basically, and Louis looked soft and fluffy and golden).

Other than that just more ramp-up in TMZ press and them finally slipping in mention of a paternity test justtttt to get the gen pop confused enough to start asking some questions. We’re almost there, bless.

And yes, I want a shirt! LOL

A week ago I made a post about all my people who were depressed and exhausted and then a day later I got into an accident that broke my elbow and my spirits. I would be lying if I said it didn’t cause my depression to take hold of my heart again. I’m more tired now than ever before. I’m broken physically, mentally and spiritually. But I promised all of you that it got better. And I know my situation will too. I wish that people who I thought would truly be there for me would actually be there but I am so glad that the people who are here for me, including my family, are here at all. I’m blessed. I’m broken beyond belief. But I am blessed. So here I am again. Reminding all of you, to make sure you keep looking up, you’re bound to catch a glimpse of the rainbow. The storm in your life will secede soon. Happiness is not something you have to try and attain. It is a lifestyle.

                ❝ The feeling is mutual. ❞

If anyone told him that he would actually LIKE working with Thranduil several weeks ago, he would have told them they were mental. The man did have a reputation for being difficult, which was the complete opposite of Thomas’s relaxed method of doing things. But somehow, they found some way to make things work, and ended up with the result they both wanted. 

Which was far more satisfying than winning any petty debate in the boardroom.

Holding one hand out, he smiled.

                                ❝ And I look forward to working with you again, if things allow. ❞

2.  hard manual labour for some reason, it really calms me down.  if i can convince myself that i’m really actually working on something i can see makes me less anxious

3.  doing things that remind me of my grampa that died a few years ago, like walking in the woods and smelling pot in the college housing.  watching the constellations at night too

4.  the deadpool movie’s made me smile more than once this week i can’t wait for that im gunna buy it as soon as it comes out too i hope its as good as it looks

The Queen of all rants (but serious)

This is more of a rant , something I need to get off my chest than as much as a blog – SORRY !  

2 weeks ago something happened that made me so frigging angry , I thought that I might actually self combust. I have waited to do this blog until we had a follow up meeting regarding what had happened and after taking many deep breaths.

When Abigail goes into school{which she loves but sadly due to the AHC cant get in as often as she would like} a class teacher / assistant goes to the nursing team on her arrival and collects a syringe of paracetamol so that if Abigail requires it during her session it is straight at hand and can be administered straight away. When the TA was going up to nursing I asked if she could check if they needed any additional meds for Abigail brought in from home. She kindly did this and brought back a post it note listing the meds they had and asking for 2 of Abigail’s meds to be replenished – one of them being Abigail’s emergency rescue drug. Thinking no more of it till we got home after being in school for a 60min session I asked Gavin to call and clarify what dose of emergency med they needed i.e a single dose etc it came to light that Abigail’s emergency drugs had gone out of date This annoyed me slightly but it is the first time that this has happened in 5 years., what really pissed me off to the point of exploding is that they did not have the correct amount of emergency drugs if Abigail had a seizure while we were there – they did not mention this and saw no need to bring it to my attention until Gavin called.  

This means that they put Abigail’s life at risk – this sounds dramatic but is true, if Abigail had seized they only had enough to give her the first dose of rescue med, and therefore would not have been able to follow the protocol put into place by Abigail’s medical team and what is followed by London Ambulance.

Now you are saying that they would / could of called an ambulance if this had happened – the last time we had to call an ambulance to school for Abigail it took 25mins to arrive if it had taken as long this time Abigail would have either of gone into a prolonged seizure (if the first dose had not worked) or ended up in status both of which potentially could have ended with Abigail having to intubated and sent to PICU.

Now before you ask or are wondering we have put a complaint in and they have started an investigation, until we know who made the decision to put our daughter’s life at risk and they have been dealt with we don’t feel comfortable / have no trust in the decision making of said person / team.

This means that we had 2 options either keep Abigail at home until it is all sorted or I sit outside her classroom and deal with any medical issues myself – this will involve me having to take in our own oxygen, ambi bag etc. I feel that because someone made a bad medical / incompetent decision that we are having to cover the void. 

 Hopefully by reading my blogs you have got to know me a little bit so you probably will have guessed we decided to keep Abigail at home.

We chose to send Abigail to the school she attends because she is a complex little girl, it meets all of her educational and social needs and we felt happier knowing that there was medical staff on site should Abigail require it, we felt she was safer – now they have let us down in a HUGE way – THEY INDANGERED OUR DAUGHTERS LIFE  

If Abigail had seized on the day, it does not bear thinking about what the outcome could have been…………………………………….

So now to do some serious thinking and make some big decisions 

Catch up with you all soon Em x  cureahcukmummy
