2. Is there any specific ritual you go through while/before/after your writing?

I always put a playlist on, get a drink (and close whatsapp :D). I srly can’t write without music, and it has to be something I’ve chosen specifically for the current story. The way the music and lyrics go influence/inspire me a HELLA.

12. A fic you wish you had written better, and why?

My modern!Bucky one. And I guess because it’s the one that’s been read the most, so it’s supposed to be my best but it’s written soooo badly. Whenever I reread it I wish I could rewrite whole chunks of it but I don’t have the motivation rn… yehhh

17. Would yo describe yourself as a fast writer?
