more things i will never write

I feel like a broken record, but...

Comment on fics you like, guys.  

Please?  As a self-conscious fic author, I can tell you that it never annoys me when people comment on my fics.  

Never.  NEVER EVER.  

Even if the comment is just ‘<3′ or ‘Loved it!’ or ‘Extra kudos’ or whatever.  (in fact, I love those kinds of comments the most of all!)  

People are always saying, “I wish I could leave kudos on every chapter!” or “I wish I could leave MORE kudos!!!”  

Here’s the thing, pals, as a fic author, kudos are LOVELY, but comments give me LIFE.  Hits aren’t even a blip.  Because I guarantee you, unless you comment or leave kudos or bookmark or something?  I will readily assume all the other hits are backclicks.  Or a mistaken click.  Or a ‘read first sentence and it wasn’t my thing, back click’.  

So if you are able (and I know it’s hard, so don’t feel pressured if that’s the case for you!), leave an author a little love in the comment box.  Even if it’s literally a little love (<3).  That kind of stuff MAKES THEIR DAY, I guarantee it.  

we have been loving roses till the thorns made us bleed. they say beautiful things are too often broken and baby the hurt came since we first said hello. tears run more when the weather changes faster than your feelings. i miss you more by the ocean. when the waves whisper to me i am not alone but i feel so. the world is quiet and my mind loud. the sun is falling down and i’m falling apart. the dreams you see are new ways of me telling i love you one more time, i miss you one more time, i want you one more time. i guess we are so good of making apologies out of promises. we are so good of making hate out of love. we are so good at destroying each other. i miss you more by the ocean. the waves whisper ‘you’ll get better’

I FOUND SOMEBODY WHO WRITES LESBIAN REGENCY NOVELS.  Penelope Friday has written:

Loving My Lady - A young gentlewoman is saved from destitution by an offer to be a lady’s companion–and her new position includes duties and pleasures she never imagined.

The Sisterhood -  A debutante to London Society discovers many unexpected things–but none more unexpected than a group of women who share a secret.

Petticoats and Promises - Two young lovers are parted when one of them suffers a sudden loss of fortune and social status, and they must struggle to find a way to be together.

Hi. Today’s the anniversary of my Tumblr account. Last year, 27.3.2016, I posted my first picture on my darling-with-no-probs blog. Now I have more than 36k followers. I posted 4 884 pictures. So it’s more than 13 posts a day. I never expected that my blog could be that big, I founded this blog for me because I can’t have 4,8k pictures in my gallery, you know.😃 But I’m so glad for your amazing support, amazing questions that you give me and the things you write me. It’s important to support everyone. The world is not the most beautiful place here, people could make it better with their care, but people often don’t care. So make people feel good about themselves, you never know what’s happening in theit lives. ❤ Thank you. ❤

anonymous asked:

Do you feel like a hypocrite giving people advice on their ed when you're still in the midst of your own?! You obviously haven't been doing what you're telling people!

I don’t feel like a hypocrite at all, actually.

The fact that I still struggle sometimes does not negate all of the work I have done or invalidate the things I have learned on this journey.  Part of recovery is taking the lessons you have learned and applying them in new situations that may come up and make you stumble.  I stumble, I have tools that I have worked hard to develop over the years, I use those coping skills, I reach out for support when needed, I pick myself up, I keep going, I keep working.  Recovery isn’t about perfection or about never having to do more work on yourself.  I would feel like a hypocrite if I did not write about these things.  I feel very lucky to be where I am today.

There is a deep hole in the sidewalk.
I fall in.
I am lost… I am helpless.
It isn’t my fault.
It takes forever to find a way out.

I walk down the same street.
There is a deep hole in the sidewalk.
I pretend I don’t see it.
I fall in again.
I can’t believe I am in the same place.
But, it isn’t my fault.
It still takes me a long time to get out.

I walk down the same street.
There is a deep hole in the sidewalk.
I see it is there.
I still fall in. It’s a habit.
My eyes are open.
I know where I am.
It is my fault. I get out immediately.

There is a deep hole in the sidewalk.
I walk around it.

I walk down another street.”

Whoops XD. 6 and 26 for the swtor ask.

Finally got to you!

6. Do you primarily play Republic, Empire, or a mix of both sides? Is there a specific reason for this preference?

I answered this before but I can add some more details - I pretty much split my playthroughs 50-50 (and even my fic is fairly evenly split, as well). One thing I really enjoy about the vanilla stories is that feeling that you can have all these characters in both factions and in all classes doing their own thing and never know of or care about the other characters’ existences - so I like exploring all that and using new dialogue/choices/whatever to build my own world (though I rarely actually write these days since I suck at being on time!).

26. Who is/are your favorite non-companion NPC(s)?

I’ve mentioned a few. But I realize I only focused on class-specific NPCs. Other ones I’ve enjoyed include:

  • Fez Burba - hilariously inept
  • Yadira Ban - RIP
  • Jace Malcom - troopers ftw
  • Captain Sarnova- soft spot for kind/nice Imperials
  • Captain Biron - ditto (wish we saw him after Hoth)
  • SoR Lana and Theron (especially on Ziost)
  • Darth Vowrawn (class-specific at first, forgot about him though)
  • Heskal for reminding us that that in Bioware games “Choice is an illusion”

anonymous asked:

So I just rewatched 11x23, where Amara was talking about being jealous of Chuck and what he had (with her whole I hated you for needing something else, something that wasn't me), and it sort of reminded me of what you wrote about Sam not quite being ok with DeanCas - that he's all or nothing and how this relates to his relationship with Dean and how Cas could divide that more... (I don't have a question, I just wanted to throw this your way and see what you thought!)

I don’t know if I see a parallel there, to be honest. I think both Chuck and Amara were meant to be tragic figures in some way, but writing gods is a very ambitious thing to do and to me, it didn’t always work out there. Amara’s arc seemed particularly random in some moments, and probably the only thing I disliked about season 11. Like - I don’t know, but to me it was never even clear why Amara should have attached herself to Dean in that way. It was Sam who set her free, after all (and Rowena), and you could argue that Dean had the Mark, but, well - so did Lucifer, and that never came up. 

(Also, that timeline was always a bit wonky - so the archangels existed before everything else and Lucifer was able to meet Amara and, what, have tea and crumpets with her before Chuck decided he needed to lock her up so he could create the world? And why would Lucifer give the Mark to Cain, then? And when does this happen, anyway - Lucifer must have been defeated by Michael after that, but - mh.)

What annoyed me the most about all that, to be honest, is that the whole Amara storyline only worked because of the subtext propping it up. We’ve discussed this ad nauseam last year, but just to be clear - she embodied this ‘wrong’ kind of love, whereas who embodied the ‘right’ kind of love? Not Chuck, that’s for sure. And also: Dean couldn’t give himself to her because he was pining for somebody else, and who? And despite being all-powerful and billions of years old, she had to go through Cas to reach Dean and talk to him, because…? No, in a way, this was exactly the same mess as season 10, with Cain and Colette on one side and Dean on the other and Jesus, you can’t have it both ways - you can’t say there’s no weird subtext and then use that weird subtext to keep the narrative going. 

To come back to your question, I don’t think that Amara/Chuck/Dean triangle had anything to do with Sam at all, which is revealing in itself, since Sam could have played a major role in that storyline: he’s the one who freed Amara, and the one who’d been praying to God all those years, and Lucifer’s vessel and whatever else, but, as usual, his issues didn’t come up beyond that ‘original sin’ theme that’s been Sam’s thing since the very first season. So, no, the plot was clearly tilted in another direction, which was never fully explored because #no homo.

Also, Amara and Sam are fundamentally different in that Sam would (and has) sacrifice his life for the world, while Amara does not see value in that. Despite her ‘redemption’ arc, if anything, I’d say Amara and Chuck parallel Michael and Lucifer (and therefore, a lot of generations removed, Dean and Sam themselves) but they had even less understanding of humanity, and human feelings, than the archangels had - and that’s saying something.

anonymous asked:

Just so I can stay up to date when you start posting your amazing fics on AO3, what is your username on there? :)

Hey dear! I have the same username there - ABookAndACoffee.

I actually post there already - my fics get posted on AO3 first because I have a weird thing about editing. I like to do it on their site because reading it in a different space (IE not in Scrivener or Word) helps me read things differently and finds problems easier?

I don’t post things that much in advance there, though. A couple hours, if that. But it might be easier to find stuff on AO3 than here because frankly my fic pages on tumblr are a bit of a mess and a pain to keep updated since I NEVER STOP WRITING. Anyway, that’s more info than you needed, but… :)

Thanks for asking!

rckyfrk  asked:

Are we ever going to find out just where Daryl goes at night when Beth is...working on stuff and things? Also, can we get more of Daryl shutting Jimmy up, because that was seriously the best.

(this ask references this fic, if you’re curious)

We will find out what Daryl does, yes. I don’t plan on writing a Daryl POV chapter (except maybe once the story is finished). I do agree that alternating POVs would have been more appropriate for this narrative, but I never planned for it to be… a narrative. In my mind it was going to be a porny one shot but then I was like “I write my best sex scenes when there’s an established emotional core” so I had to dig into Beth’s head and I dug too deep and now I can’t get out. W h o o p s. 

But, yes. I responded to someone’s comment (it might have been yours) on an earlier chapter that we’ll see more into Daryl’s perspective once the sexual involvement starts. For now I want to keep him pretty opaque; the most important thing I want to convey about him is that no matter what his actions might suggest to the reader, Beth does not view him as a sexual threat, or even a sexual possibility (at least not consciously, and if so she tries not to think about it). 

In chapter one when they’re working out their “deal,” I originally wrote a line where Beth asks “So what do you get out of this?” and my decision to remove that question—remove it even from Beth’s inner monologue—is pretty much what defines this story for me. It never occurs to Beth that Daryl might have an ulterior motive in doing this for her. She sees a good man and a kindred spirt and the first person who really gets what she’s going through: that these masturbation sessions are far less about sex itself and more about carving her own space in a world that doesn’t seem to hold a place for her anymore. 

That’s my intention, anyway. The execution is feeling sloppy to me because, again, this was not supposed to be an actual story. I have no idea what the endgame is so I’m just rolling with it right now.

I enjoy writing Daryl’s disdain for Jimmy (even though I love Jimmy so much, the poor potato), so I wouldn’t be surprised to see more of that. I do want to explore Beth’s relationship with the other characters, though, so I’m not sure how central Jimmy will end up being.

That was a very long answer but thank you for the question :)

Hey I wrote a thing, it’s Yoongi/Hoseok and it technically crosses off the soulmarks square in my never-to-be-finished fic bingo but it’s possibly more about alternate timelines and the apocalypse? No one dies tho. 3399 words. 

Thx owed as usual to @proteinscollide and @flywithturtles!

A meager and shy 4% of the population.
I know there are others that have been stitched together of the same ways, and yet sometimes I fail to truly believe it.

I am painfully aware that I am not important enough to be the only one who feels the things I feel or think the things I think.

But I am even more aware of the blank stares and uncomfortable laughs I am greeted with when I try to speak my heart

unashamed-shipper  asked:

Oh my goodness, I can't believe you updated 2 fics in one day! I'm so proud of you! I never have time to do that 😰 I would love to have as much motivation as you 😘 You are lovely ❤

Honestly, I can only really update things if I force myself to just sit down and do it. It mostly eats up my nights and Saturday morning lol. I have a super hard time writing things in little bits, which is why I’m struggling with a long-ass one-shot haha

I’m going to attempt to start a third fic and hope I don’t die lol, it’s going to be more light-hearted, so it’s not going to take as much out of me, I hope!

Anyway! Thanks, Audrey! I try my best!

Monday 8:27am
I woke up with you on my mind.
You called me babe last night —
my heart is still pounding.

Tuesday 10:53pm
Today I realized we won’t work.
What we are is hurting her.
And I think she matters more to me than you do.

Wednesday 11:52pm
I broke things off with you today.
She barely said a word.
I’ve never regretted anything more than this.

Thursday 4:03pm
I shouldn’t have sent that message.
You shouldn’t have been so okay with receiving it.

Friday 9:57pm
I almost messaged you today.
I didn’t.

Saturday 8:49pm
I’m walking around town in search of alcohol.
They say that liquor numbs the pain of having a broken heart.
I want to put that to the test.

Sunday 2:32am
I heard you texted a girl you’ve never spoken to before.
I wonder if it’s because you’re trying to replace me.
I can’t help but wish you weren’t.
I thought I was irreplaceable.

—  a week with you on my mind, c.j.n.
