I'm looking for a few more blogs to follow that post a lot of TOG and/or ACOTAR fanfics. Do you have any blog suggestions?
@feyre-archerons-scrapbook has been working on some fics lately, she’s not a fic blog and I think it’s pretty much just her stuff and mine she posts/reblogs (because she’s my lovely beta and the bestest ever), but she’s a great writer I will always recommend to anyone who listens!!
I keep having dreams that bleed into one another, where I wake up in one and I lose track of which reality is real, and I swear whenever it happens Scrappy Doo is in the corner of it all. Watching and plotting. Let me dream in peace you devilish mongrel.
that post with people discussing queerbaiting - i rly wish faranda would take off but couples aside, it would just be really amazing if any character could show interest in the same sex ? without having to justify anything ? just like todd has been showing interest towards women ? like it would mean The World to me to see a queer character on this kind of show, and i really don't think it would impact whatever story max wants to tell in any way
I totally agree; while we definitely need more cannon relationships, writers also gotta start showing other orientations without it being a huge thing or plot point. AKA start actually normalizing them, not tokenizing. And honestly, it’s so easy. Have someone make an offhand comment that’s not made into a joke, or casually mention a past relationship without any other characters batting an eye. Literally all it takes is one or two lines, and it doesn’t have to have any story relevance whatsoever. Just mention it! And there’s representation! Ta da!
Anyway, I’m hoping Max will at least give us something. (Please, for the love of the Great Green Arkleseizure, Max, give us something.)
Ok people, if you have not read The Dark Horizon by @qqueenofhades , YOU MUST GO READ IT NOW!!!!!! This is one of the VERY BEST things I’ve EVER read, fic or published book!!! A truly magnificent, phenomenal work!!!
