summary: you are a poet on an online forum and connor murphy has been a big fan of your work for… well, for a long time. one day, he finally gets to the courage to send you a message about it - except it turns into more conversations about more than just the art.

a/n: ahh!!! this one is a bit more abnormal and all dialogue, with no actions or feelings or explanations etc!! if this isnt your thing then dont feel obligated to read it. but it is rlly natural and kind of fun to read at points and i feel like its very connor-esque. this will be split into 2 parts for your easy reading because text talk format might get annoying after a while (and ignore any mistakes i make in the format set up its a lot of work) but… enjoy ?? <3 btw all poetry is mine dont steal xoxo

Authors Note: Sooo I wrote this and then it deleted so I had to re-write it and to be honest the first draft was 100 times better, but it is whatever! 
Harry’s debut single is about to drop in a few hours: If my list is correct and the single hasn’t been released early. (This post is scheduled so if the song was released early. Ooops). 


You had gotten used to waking up at various hours to an empty bed, but you had hoped the emptiness wouldn’t be a thing while in New York. 

With dreary eyes, you look at the empty space beside you, the hotel room still darkened by the hour, the linen sheets draping around your body as you gradually sit up in the California King bed. With a heavy yawn, you pull your body from the softness of the sheets, forcing yourself to pad towards the balcony doors. 

He has been a mess the last few months, more so the last two weeks, it has killed you to see him so out of touch with himself, he has poured all his energy into this new development of his that he has managed to forget how to properly sleep. 

You and Harry arrived in New York in the early morning so he could prepare himself for the new step in his life, the dropping of his first single. To say the least, the hype is hurting him more than his own fans, the anticipation is killing him.

You reach for one of his jackets draped over the hotel chair and you pull it up your arms before you step outside onto the balcony where he is leaning against the railing, his arms pressed to the railing, his back slightly arched.

Chaos and Adventure (ME Fic)

I was @qbert0​‘s Holiday Harbinger gifter, and wanted to write something to go with the dice bag. You mentioned that you liked fShep/Liara and Garrus/Tali as a secondary pairing, that you enjoyed the whole gang’s adventures in the Citadel DLC, and requested no heavy emotional angst, so I tried to write a bit of fluff that captured some of those themes. It was a fun piece to write and I hope you enjoy it!

Post-game, ambiguous as to ending but Shepard is alive, pretty much pure fluff.


Judging from the length of the line outside, the rebuilt Ryuusei’s Sushi Bar was even popular than the old one. Even in civvies, Shepard was quickly recognized and waved to the front of the line. Liara had wondered if she would prove to be on some sort of restaurant blacklist, but if the maître d’ was aware of Shepard’s role in the demise of the sushi bar’s previous incarnation, she gave no sign. “Welcome, ma’am, Ryuusei’s is honored to have you,” she said smoothly. “This way, please, the rest of your party is waiting for you.”

Liara took a moment to look over the place. The renovation had been extensive (and doubtless expensive). Fish swam contentedly below her feet, unaware of the tragic fate of their predecessors. The wood paneling was carefully aged as if to suggest that the restaurant had been in continuous operation for decades, and certainly had not been invaded by mercenaries or swarming with Reapers at any point.

The maître d’s brow was furrowed in a look Liara had learned to interpret as impatience. She fell in beside Shepard as they made their way across the restaurant. Garrus Vakarian gave a quick wave from across the way – of course, he had spotted them first. Tali’Zorah’s attention appeared to be completely absorbed by the “NEW Dextro Menu!” in her hands, but she quickly glanced up as the maître d’ pulled out Shepard and Liara’s chairs.

“Shepard! Liara!” she said. “It’s so good to see you!” Liara didn’t need to be able to see Tali’s face to know that she was smiling. “It’s been too long.”

“Well, if some people could tear themselves away from their homeworlds more often…” Shepard said teasingly.

Garrus spread his hands. “You know how it is, Shepard,” he said ruefully. “One meeting after another, datapad after datapad filled with decisions to be made… It’s enough to make a turian think about resuming his vigilante career. I’d have thought the Reaper advisor would be, eh, off the hook with the Reapers gone…”

“Ah, ah!” Tali waved a finger in mock indignation. “No Reaper talk.”

OK SO I really need a fic told from the point of view of one of Will's students, and they're just really annoyed that their classes keep getting cancelled and rearranged and they signed up for this class because Will is a genuinely good teacher but they're getting almost zero time with him what the hell.

I will file this away in the idea bin, but for now, how about I offer you a little something from the “abandoned fic ideas” pile?  Way back when a bunch of folks were doing the Tale of Two Murder Husbands collaborative thing, I was going to do a ficlet from the perspective of Will’s former TA.  I got started on it late because I was originally going to do a different character and then let someone else have that character, so in the end I couldn’t pull my fic together in time, and I ended up not finishing/posting it.  

But I still have the draft of what I got done!  And it does touch on Will, The Very Good Yet Never Around FBI Teacher.  So it might at least help scratch your itch.

Draft half-fic below the cut, in the form of a transcript from an interview with Will’s former TA.

How to Write a Novel

Have you ever had a brilliant idea for a novel? You sat down to write, and the first two/three chapters came out fast as lightning, but then it stopped. You got stuck. “Writer’s block.” Right?

I finished my first “novel” (novella length) when I was 14, and since then have brought 5, going on 6 different novels at least as far as a complete first draft. I’m told this is considered unusually productive.

I understand that the same writing process doesn’t work for everyone, but if you’re stuck trying to be productive, or don’t understand how people can finish books, you might find it useful to have a look into my writing process. If you have a process that works for you, ignore this. If you’re stuck trying to get anywhere on a project, read on.

1. Daydreaming

Ah! But this is productive daydreaming. Every time you think of something that seems like it could be part of a story, write it down. Preferably in a specific place. Simply the act of gathering these ideas will help you think of more of them. Soon you cannot bear to have a cool idea without writing it down.

2. Isolating the story

Not all ideas will work equally well together. After I have a lot of fragments, I start to pick out all the ones that seem like they work together in the same setting. They have typically a type or aesthetic. At this stage maybe make a Pinterest board or some other type of aesthetic compilation. Cautionary: do not reupload photos that do not belong to you.

3. Pastebin

Next I set up a sort of “pastebin” (usually a notepad file) into which I can dump all the related fragments. I put everything there I can think of. Plot events, character details, all jumbled together. Building this bank or repository usually goes on for several months. If I feel compelled to start writing, I just put it here. Everything here and earlier can be done simultaneously while working on another project.

4. Assembly

When I finally feel like I have enough ideas, as well as a solid idea of the aesthetic of the novel, I take the pastebin contents into a separate document and start to assemble them a summary. I consider this the official beginning of the project. This is also the point at which I start to list and define my characters and start to strike out ideas which have turned out to be irrelevant.

5. Plotting

I  use the program Scrivener for this, which is truly invaluable. This can be done without Scrivener, though, and I did it before Scrivener, it was just more difficult. Write each separate event of the story on a different notecard and experiment with arranging them until you find the correct order of events. Be sure to consider cause/effect relationships. If there is anything implicit that has to take place between point A and point B in your plot, write up a card for it. If you have any favored plot structures like the Hero’s Journey or the Midpoint Reversal, now is the time to consider them. Notecards can be color-coded by subplot or POV or anything you like.

6. Begin!

At this point I open up a word document and start to write. For most chapters I usually start by creating a bullet-like list of things that happen, in order to make sure I hit all my goals for the chapter. This can include setting details, foreshadowing, character development goals, that snappy line of dialogue you just thought of, whatever. Don’t delete these (except the ones you decide not to use). Save them somewhere. Scrivener makes this easy. The bullet lists can prove invaluable in helping you rewrite. You can also rearrange your notecards at any time during the draft and add new ones.

7. The Grind

Word count goals are pretty effective at keeping me motivated to progress. If you feel so inclined, join Nanowrimo or use some other program to help you turn out fast word count. Sharing with others helps with motivation too. If you don’t have a writing group to support you, find a child who likes being read to. Read your shitty draft out loud to them. Provided it’s child appropriate, of course. Nothing is more motivating than a kid demanding to know what happens next. Don’t forget to: get physical exercise! Drink water! Have something else going on in your life! I’m serious. Don’t spend more than like 20 minutes staring at a page without writing anything. Get up.

8. Starting Over

Midway through you might find some humongous flaw, or discover that your vision for the story has changed completely. This is okay! Rewrite your summary. Scrap your first draft entirely (well, don’t throw anything away, but you know what I mean) and start over from your notes. Use the chapter bullet points that you developed while writing the first draft. Try not to look at your old draft while rewriting or your brain will get in a rut and you will make the same mistakes again.

9. Finished!

Once I am done with my first draft, I put together a list of all the things I want to change. Outside input helps a lot with this. As in the previous step, I build another summary. I get my chapter bullet lists and modify them as I go to include and remind me of the changes I need to make. These lists and the original summary really help you remember the original vision for the story. Sometimes you can look at what you’ve written and all you see is text. The notes will help you dissect it again. If you haven’t started over from scratch yet, now is the time to do so. If you have already done so, then your overall plot structure ought to be sound, and chapter-by-chapter level edits should be okay.

10. Space.

When I’m done with either the second draft, or what I call “1.5″ (which is a story that I had to start over in the middle), I need some space. At this point you need to take at least several months away from your novel to “see it with fresh eyes”. Work on something else.

11. Feedback

Feedback essential for rewriting at the chapter level. For a beginner, you will need to get feedback before doing any rewriting at all because you might have trouble identifying the flaws in your first draft. Feedback is hard to get. I know. Try to arrange editing swaps with other writers. Even the experience of editing other people’s novels can help you spot mistakes in your own. Never take anyone’s advice for your story at face value. Only you know what you are trying to say - other people can guess wrong. Try to figure out what led them to the wrong conclusion.

Note that revision can be a never-ending process if  you let it. At some point you have to move on - whether that is publication or whatever you have in mind for your novel.

I haven’t yet published, and since there are many other blogs who have and are more qualified to talk about the publishing process, I’ll leave that to them. Here are some of my other writing posts:

anonymous asked:

No but why is the book problematic? What's wrong with them? I only read the first 2 and they seem okay to me. Its a little... Off... In some parts, but other that it seems okay.

ok im not really sure if this is the same anon that told me to go fuck myself if it is then i wish you love and happiness (also if it is then why are you judging me for not reading the books if you’ve only read 2) and if it isnt then i’ll gladly explain nonnie, btw im gonna talk about the books and casserole clam

Let’s start with the LGBT/queer part of the books/problems:

  • Alec is biphobic. He makes fun of Magnus for having been with men and women.
  • ALEC WAS SUPPOSED TO DIE IN HER FIRST DRAFT i see she loves malec so much she was gonna have her only male gay character die FOR LOVE GUYS
  • Casserole said how she “headcanons” Raphel as asexual, which first of all was kinda weird?? bc she changed his sexuality and then said “its a hc” like she is the literal author??? everything she says has to be canon???, and second of all it’s rude towards the ace/aro part of the fandom bc not having any rep is terrible and having someone give you that rep and then take it away from you is the wrost thing ever
  • Alec’s sexuality is HIS ONLY STORYLINE, he is the token gay character. 
  • Apparently there’s a lesbian couple in the books that is sent to an island or something
  • Magnus is canonically bisexual but then she “headcanoned” him as pansexual bc for her they are kinda the same, what she is doing only shows how little knowledge she has over queer stuff and how little respect she has for her characters’ sexualities.
  • Simon and Izzy, a straight, white (in the books) couple get a happy ending, and Magnus and Alec, a same sex, biracial couple don’t. Now, because the straights are gonna hate me for this, i’m not saying straight white couples don’t deserve happy endings i’m just saying that if she is such an ally then why didn’t she give BOTH couples a happy ending?
  • Malec was denied proper development in her books, to my knowledge not even the most important parts of Alec’s ONLY storyline (the token gay) where in his POV, their entire relationship was in the background (she like sends them away for half a book i think), it wasn’t even put in the main saga of the books even tho alec IS a main character.
  • After the show became such a popular thing she was like “oh i’m gonna write more malec” what did she do? she decided to write smut, which only proves that she fetishizes gay sex, reminder that this is a STRAIGHT woman that is writting about two male characters doing something sexual only bc she wants a t t e n t i o n.
  • she prides herself for being an ally but in reality she is a straight person that has internalized homophobia and DOES NOT ACCEPT IT AND TRY TO CHANGE IT

Now let’s go to the racist part of the books:

Its very clear, and even in the show, how much social differences downworlders and shadowhunters have, it’s not subtle how much she was trying to make racism a thing in the books. Shadowhunters have so much internalized racism towards downworlders i don’t even think they notice it, and it’s even obvious in the show how much they seriously don’t think downworlers are equal, and yes i’m talking about EVERY CHARACTER, but im not here to talk about the show, anyways… you know how i said Izzy and Simon get a happy ending? well that’s bc Simon is turned into so many things but hey hey surprise he ends up becoming a shadowhunter and being happy with the love of his life bc now he is not filthy and digusting like the downworlders now he derserves respect and love. You see, it’s not that it is a bad thing to talk about social differences in YA novels because you can eassily educate people (if you are well educated yourself), BUT cc did such a bad job with it she souldn’t have tried, why not leave simon as a vampire but have him be respected by everyone? why not have sh realize they are racist and that they should change? why not at the end of her books have laws be changed so downworlders can be equal? LOL NO WHY DO THAT WHEN I CAN CHANGE SIMON AND MAKE HIM PURE LIKE EVERYONE ELSE

Anyways let’s move to the incest part:

Now imo this is the most controvercial issue in her books, CC has an incest fetish, it’s disgusting and so so so wrong…

Someone asked her something about TVD and she was like “lol why don’t you ship the ones that are brothers”, she wrote a fic about ron and ginny , her entire story is like an incest fest, Clary and Jace find out they are brothers but do they stop being weird and sexual with each other? nope they keep doing it BUT ITS OK BECAUSE ITS LOVE AND THEY ARE NOT ACTUAL BROTHER AND SISTER if that is someone’s actual excuse to see Clace as something romantic then please ask them what is wrong with them, even if they aren’t brother and sister they THOUGHT they were and while they THOUGHT they were they were still all over each other BUT ITS LOVE SO ITS OK, also isn’t there a part where sebastian tries to rape his actual sister (clary)? ha the rape part wasn’t disgusting enough??? ADD SOME INCEST, isnt that how clare’s brain works?

Can we also talk about how Alec has a crush on Jace even tho they are B R O T H E R S… maybe not blood related but they are still brothers and it’s just so fucking wrong. Tbh im surprised she didn’t try to have Izzy be attracted to Alec.

I read a post yesterday about someone that said how the incest stroyline was such a huge part of the books and that they hoped the writers did a good job with it… WHAT KIND OF PSYCHOTIC THINKING IS THIS there is no good way to treat incest what the fuck is wrong with cc stans????????? its all so wrong

BUT IF YOU ARE IN LOVE I GUESS ITS  A OK TO HUMP WHO YOU THINK IS YOUR SISTER 

Ok so now… my issues with book!malec: 

it’s so…bad???

For what i have read this relationship is really toxic, Magnus and Alec start their relationship when Alec is 17, which is not only illegal but oh so wrong, they don’t communicate at all (i think Alec almost takes Magnus’ inmortality away and doesn’t even give a fuck if Magnus is ok with it), Alec is such a biphobic asshole toward Magnus…

Straight people like to complain so much about Show!Malec but this is literally one of the very very very very few same sex relationships that is healthy AND THEY HAVENT EVEN STARTED THEIR OFFICIAL RELATIONSHIP give me a break

I really want to point out how hard it is to create a queer character/relationship and not fuck it all up if you are straight and know nothing about queer romance, she tried and failed. It was awful and gross and please NEVER let her write queer romance ever again.

(Her cishet stans talk about how much Alec/malec’s stroyline matter so much to them, dude IM QUEER IT ALSO MATTERS TO ME BUT HER POTRAYAL OF IT WAS TERRIBLE SHUT UP)

Ok so now let’s jump to the anti cc boat:

  • She enjoys toxic relationships (she made a character go back to her abuser).
  • Enjoys incest.
  • Is such a petty woman isn’t she like 40 wtf
  • almost got a girl kicked out of college
  • slut shamed izzy, which was extremely rude because emeraude and the writers have done a great job they dont derserve this shit
  • made her stans attack a fan
  • something is gay? time to sexualize it but dont worry she is such a great ally she is great her representation is 10/10 total knowledge of the LGBT+ community
  • so manny more terrible things tbh

And i know some of you are gonna be like BTU HSE CRATED TEH SADHOW HUNTERS WORLD lmao no she didnt she plagiarized everything, there is like a chart someone made where they compare everything in TMI with Dark- hunters and my dude it’s pretty fucking similar. And she didnt exactly create her characters, she took the personalities from HP characeters and put them in her books, oh yeah that reminds me people are actually saying tmi is better than harry potter??? no it isnt???? leave hp alone

Did i forget anything please tell me i’m here to add things to this list.

Also if you cc stans are gonna come crap on my blog or this post, im gonna ignore you so don’t waste your precious time please.

Edit: I forgot how Izzy and Clary literally hate each other for no reason other than the girl on girl hate trope, which is childdish and gross

Why we may never meet Baby Watson

I’ve posted various theories on the pregnancy before, and I still don’t think we have enough clues to come up with one as the clear probable case. Mary’s faking it? Maybe. John’s not the father? Possibly. Stillborn? Parentlock? Baby is an alien? Sure, why not.

Then I started thinking about the few times from the end of TSo3 onward that the baby is actually mentioned. And from a writer’s perspective, one thing started to stick out. But that thing is…well, a bit not good.

|| Part I || Part II || Part III ||


I.

Her satisfaction is short-lived.

His blood on her knife hasn’t even dried before Elena tells her. Kai.

“Why didn’t you tell me before I-”

“I didn’t know Damon was going to come up with the idea to leave him here! It’s like you guys… You and Damon, you talk- you talk about stuff, just you two, scheming, and I- Damon didn’t tell me.” Elena looks dejected, her brown eyes all doe-eyed and tearful. As though considering there’s a part of Damon’s life that’s not about her leads to many a sleepless nights and profound agony. 

For once, however, Bonnie doesn’t feel it. It doesn’t hit her in that sweet spot, that Elena spot, the one that makes her want to give Elena everything. Maybe it’s the cold snow seeping through the cracks of her boots. Or maybe the spot is hidden underneath her rage now, her now permanent state of rage. Like her grandmother’s necklace underneath piles and piles of coats at Vicky Donovan’s birthday party that one time. She’d spent so long trying to find it. 1994 must have robbed her of it, of her need to provide comfort and reassurance to anyone but herself. Add it to the list of things 1994 took from her. Gave her, she thinks for a second, but she pushes the thought away.

A/N: I stole some of my nephew’s personality traits and gave them to Shep for this part. My nephew loves to tell stories. When he met my friend for the first time, he sat down and told her stories for over an hour. The imagination on that kid…

Part 1 – Part 2 – Part 3


“What do you think about this?” Jared asked, turning his laptop towards you the next day.

“Shouldn’t you be asking your publicist that?”

He shook his head. “I want this to be one hundred percent me, you know? Not some press release crap. The fans deserve more than that.”

Nodding in complete understanding, you pulled the computer towards you and looked over his drafted Facebook post:

a/n: idk what this tbh but if you want a part two you should let me know because i could make this into a series i kind of have an idea worked out in my head :))) this has been in my drafts for AGES tbh so ??? idk i decided to finally finish it and post it tonight. lemme know what u think & if you want a part two hope u like it!!!!

You were standing alone along the brick wall of a frat house kitchen, drinking straight vodka from a plastic cup. This was the usual for you when you were drug to these parties by your best friend and roommate. She dated one of the boys in the fraternity and she always drug you along but you really didn’t mind because there was always free alcohol and you weren’t the type to decline something as good as free alcohol. 

No one really came into the kitchen unless it was to get more booze, so it was a relatively quiet area. You could hear the music pumping from the living area and a ton of noise coming from the second floor of the house but other than that no one bothered you here. You were able to just chill out and get drunk. 

A boy, who definitely wasn’t dressed for this party or even looked like he was wanting to be here sauntered into the kitchen. He had on what looked like to be pajamas, a holey t-shirt and some black basketball shorts and no shoes. A snapback was covering his clearly colorful hair. You studied him as he poured some straight vodka into a plastic cup, smiling to yourself.

He turned around, meeting your eyes and smirked, “Hey.”

“Hey, enjoying the party?” you ask sarcastically. You could tell he was just like you, only in this very same kitchen for some alcohol. 

He chuckled as he walked over to your place on the wall, leaning back beside you. Taking a sip from his cup before replying, “Probably just as much as you are enjoying it.”

anonymous asked:

So I saw this picture: bryscott(.)tumblr(.)com/post/130865047632 and immediately thought of you. Then I thought of either, Derek feeling a little bit saucy as he gets ready for a date with Stiles //or// Stiles watching Derek model his new underwear as part of a sexy times already-in-progress.

Anon, you’re killing me (nsfw image)

But also I read the end of your ask as “Derek models underwear” and had this perfect mental image of Stiles discovering pictures from old modeling jobs Derek did back in New York – maybe browsing online or even finding an old magazine in some box when Derek finally ships his New York things back to Beacon Hills – and obviously becoming completely obsessed with it. Tracking down more pictures, maybe going so far as to scrounge for back-issues of the magazine, in the hopes of getting more glimpses of Derek. (Because it’s just crazy, ok? It’s weird. How can you possibly discover that your surly, broody unfairly attractive semi-friend is a freaking softcore model and not obsessively search for all the possible evidence?)

But of course it’s Stiles, so there’s no way he’s going to be able to obsess quietly. And maybe he starts making little comments, things that make Derek squint but shake off, until one time Stiles is captured, and when Derek swoops in to rescue him it just slips out:

“I mean, I know you look a hell of a lot better tied up with ropes…” 

And Derek freezes because there’s only one time he’s ever been tied up with ropes (not like anyone actually trying to capture a werewolf would use that), and by the way Stiles is suddenly flushing, pupils blowing out before he looks away, he knows it too.

“I mean…” he starts. “Theoretically…”

But Derek’s leaning in slow, strong fingers wrapping around the rope still circling Stiles’ abdomen. Trailing his hand across in a slow torture until it’s pressed hot against Stiles’ belly.

“Theoretically?”

When Stiles looks back up his eyes aren’t angry. They’re intrigued, almost teasing. He licks his lips.

Theoretically, I might’ve seen some pictures. A picture. And then other pictures. Of you in ropes. And other… things.”

Derek twists the rope a little, tugging, and Stiles’ next breath goes out right against Derek’s mouth. They hang there, a slow torture of not quite touching, while Derek’s lips take on a slow, smug curl.

“And you liked what you saw?”

Stiles laughs, feels his flush all over. He knows there’s no way to hide the lust in his scent, and he must be unbearably red right now. Goddamn werewolves.

“You know I did. Really need me to boost your ego, Mr. Model?”

Derek lets out a slow hum like he’s considering it, like he’s going to sit here and wait for Stiles to break and start babbling about Derek’s abs or his ass or the strange special affection Stiles has for that first picture of Derek in a loose sweater and jockstrap. (And how he hasn’t quite been able to convince himself that it’s about the fulfillment of too many locker room fantasies and not at all about the way Derek looks almost cozy, almost soft, wrapped up in that sweater.)

Derek’s breath huffs out hot and sweet and Stiles almost whines into it, almost leans in.

And then the rope’s going slack, Derek shifting back to his feet with that damn smug expression, his claw slowly retracting. Stiles sits there, the rope falling down in a heap around him, and he doesn’t think he’s ever hated being free so much in his life.

“Right,” he says, trying to cool his body back from sixty to zero. “Thanks. So, uh… I guess we should–” He breaks off because Derek’s eyes are roaming across him – long, lingering gazes, and it doesn’t help a bit.

And then Derek’s saying, slow and easy, “Take the rope.”

Stiles blinks at him, eyes wide, mouth hanging open, because what? And Derek’s brows lift, smug grin going decidedly wicked.

“A dedicated fan like you deserves a free show.” And then, turning away toward the exit. “And you look good tied up too.”

(Stiles nearly trips on the ropes in his scramble to gather them up and follow.)
