Day one of the road trip is over and I got to hug @alannastara and see her wonderfully adorable children ahhhh the best! Also, her completely fantastic MIL bought us dinner at The Olive Garden I can’t even! We’re picking Lydia up at seven tomorrow so send god or idk something. 😂
1. Pick one of your favorite of your fics! Why is it your favorite? Be sure to add a link!
Oh my!! Where do I began? well first of all it has to be Betrothed from the Between Nature and Nurture series. The language and proses all flow so smoothly and the portrayal of the characters are so accurate it hurts hnnngg. I especially enjoyed the slow burn, and how Eren warms up to Erwin just a bit at a time. The whole fic is just domestic, fluffy bliss for my vanilla heart. It’s just so beautifully written yo [cries] If anyone is interested in Eruren pls check it out it will warm ur smol cold heart.
Seeing is not Believing by my dearest bru @snarky-goldfish was such a heartwarming and quirky piece of work. All the dynamic characters interact so well aaaaaAAAAA, from the awkward moments when Eren and Levi just met, to the fluid transformation of mythology in a futuristic, dystopian setting, the fic is just so developed and mature. Also, it is one of the few fics where other than Levi and Eren, other characters have a major role in the main character’s life. I just…love how supportive Armin and Mikasa is of eren and levi’s relationship. While I haven’t finished it, I am sure that whatever awaits me will be an utmost privilege to enjoy.
How can I forget Starboy by @perksofbeingawaifu? I love how the author creates the intricate conflict of old vs. new, about growing up and changing, and about how an individual comes to term with their position in life. Veiled by the beautiful writing is the underlying question about the individual and their relationships, about letting go and holding on, and coming to terms with the reality that living brings (at least from my own interpretation). It’s a very developed piece that leaves you deep in thought.
2. Post a favorite snippet or quote?
“Satisfied with this answer, Eren nodded, giving his husband a soft, encouraging smile to continue. When Erwin continued to stare at him instead, Eren tilted his head to the side quizzically.
“You are so beautiful.”
Rose tinged cheeks only added to the beauty the thirteenth commander saw before his eyes.”
Seeing is not Believing (as of now):
“And here it was. Eren simply didn’t have any idea on how he could break it in to the man.
‘I’m your future husband. And if you ever refuse this, you have to know that the world will end with we don’t get married. You’re not gay? How nice, me too!’
Right, he couldn’t.”
“So yeah, I guess this is goodbye for real this time.”
I threw down my cigarette and squashed it good.
“I miss you, Starboy.”
“Hello Earthboy,” Eren said, standing at the other edge of the circle, my necklace snug around his neck.
I felt a smile tug crookedly at my face.
“You’re the only one who gets to call me that,” I said, toeing the ground casually as I met him in the center. “I thought you left for good.”
3. Why do you enjoy writing/reading this fic?
Oh my, if i rattled off everything this is going to take at least two full pages to cram in lmaoooo. Every fic makes me feel things that I’ve never experienced, it’s just so hard to describe ;-;
5. Wanna give a shoutout to anyone who has been super supportive of this fic (betas, friends, mutuals, commenters)? Or favorite authors?
I don’t personally write fics ;u; but here we go anyways!!!
@snarky-goldfish do I even need to say it? For the one year that we’ve met and chatted to each other, I slowly realised that I was chatting to such a wonderful human being. From the countless messages we’ve exchanged I see someone so confident and sure in their words, at the same time you’re the most easy-going person I’ve met. I love you from the moon and back bru.
@crying-abt-fictional-people Oh man oh man, it’s all thanks to you that my art had a chance to be seen to the fandom. Plus your support is always so heartwarming and it always comes in the most necessary times, bless your eren-loving soul. Being friends with you is something that I don’t feel like I deserve.
@arisacake thank you for your patience with me senpai!! Ever since I’ve met you I have learned so much about fandom etiquette, as a content creator it made me become aware of the things that I once ignored. Plus your art is a major inspiration for me!!! the ultimate senpai.
@corporalmizuki your messages for sure bring a much-needed smile to my face every time, seeing you grow and overcome your insecurities was one of the most motivating things I’ve witnessed. Stay strong in your battle against your demons my friend, just remember your courage has always been a huge inspiration to me.
@intodenile whenever your replies/asks shows up in my feed I just feel so loved. I am so honoured to have met someone as kind and understanding as you my friend. Your presence feels like home, and your encouragement motivates me to push myself to do better. (and wtf you’re so pretty in ur selfies???? Tell me your secrets)
@acequeenm heyyo my fave nb homie!!!! They are the coolest meme lord and the best slowbro in my heart. You took down a gym for me today, that’s why u r the best slowbro for me. Your overflowing positivity just makes my dash 1000% better, all day every day.
6. What’s another fic - yours or someone else’s - that you feel needs some love? Why do you love it?
i hope that one day you read through this tag that has become littered with my thoughts of you. you you you. you’re all i’ve thought about for over a year. it hasn’t been the easiest, and we haven’t been in each other’s lives the entire time. but there’s something about you. i don’t know what it is or where it’s going to lead but i want you to know that you’ve made all of my pain go away simply by me knowing that someone like you exists
i think i love you but i don’t remember when i started
