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!! 

She has:::

Beyond her’s though, I don’t actually read fanfic (I know, I write it but don’t read it???), so I’m opening this up to my followers to also help you out!



I am dying. Beth Crowley wrote a song about Harry Potter. Inspired by Snape. Fangirling so hard…(hyperventilates and cries). This applies Dramione, too. Fuck.

I used to love you from afar,
As we all decided who we are,
But you were never mine to have,
Still I loved you to the last,
Because you were my, you are my always

Oh my god oh my god oh my god

One of my best internet friends just bought overwatch and I’m going to piss myself.



Just so you all know, though, I have played with @memefilia, @oroborochi, @moldypechas, @valenshawke, aaaand…i think that’s it.

I talk wayyyy too fuckin much but I think they’ve survived the experience.

It’s really really fun playing with people you sort of know.

So I just can’t wait to play with my friend, it’s gonna be sick.

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.) 

Thanks for the ask, anon! Happy Towel Day! :)
