Writer Appreciation Day!
Um, apparently I almost missed fic writer appreciation day??? Unacceptable. I apologize in advance for any folks I miss… you are still amazing!
@thesecondsealwrites. Just… read everything she ever writes. Ever. She is an absolute love, and an unparalleled talent in this community. Her most recent work, Heatwaves, is an absolute treasure for summer reading, but I highly recommend everything even as far back as Acts of Reclamation. P.S., she also writes some pretty amazing original work.
@slothquisitor is my most favored slothy pal (and a wonderful friend, sloths aside), and another one you just need to read everything she has ever written. My favorite is A Class Act, but I am also a shameless enabler of her Mara x Branson fics. I am also going to continue shamelessly enabling this ship. ;)
@rhetoricalrogue is one of the most thoughtful OC creators I have ever seen. Her characters are well-rounded, engaging, and interesting. My personal favorites are Ravena, Rolfe, and Vincent and I love her fic The Griffon and the Raven. It made me fall in love with the Ravena/Blackwall pairing.
@saibrarutherford is one of the sweetest people ever, and recently started writing a wonderful fic titled The One Who Will Live On, and also has Love in the Time of Corypheus. I have had the privilege of beta-ing her work; a gift I do not take lightly. I highly recommend reading her work!
@welseykels… her Mira and Alistair pairing just gives me life, and she was kind enough to let me co-opt Mira to pair with Alistair when I re-shipped Cataline (and can I just say: they work together so much better). I’m not even sure where I can begin with recommendations for her, so here’s her masterlist. Just read it all. <3
@missragdoll84… my best friend and worst enabler… I know it isn’t quite ready yet, but I have full confidence in the brilliance of your current WIP, and I cannot wait to see it shared with everyone. :D <3
@novamm66 is such a darling person, and it has been a joy to watch her work improve and grow in the short time I have been reading her work. She is also an artist whose talent continues to improve as well!
And to all the writers out there… thank you. <3 Thank you for sharing your words and your stories and your dreams with us.
