if you could rewrite parts of your fic what would you do? sry if this sounds rude just as a one year reflection kinda question
rewrite the entire reaper narrative because fuck did i mess that up. now that we know more about him i could’ve written him with much more nuance and detail, and i didn’t do and that it’s biting me now as i write these next chapters. like, in tdlh he’s presented as entirely as this one-dimensional villain, and to break away from that with everything i’ve already written is a delicate balancing act that one of my betas and i are busting our asses trying to figure out.
also? youngblood. there have been very few scenes with her, but she’s come off as abrasive and tough and this is fine but it was not what i intended. there’s much more to her than taking d.va’s spot and being rough around the edges, and i failed to show that to readers and grah.
not to say there isn’t a lot of tdlh that i’m proud of, and i think i’ve grown tremendously as both a person and a writer! plus it’s given me the amazing opportunity to form lasting friendships and reach people in a way that is visceral and real, and that is more valuable to me than anything.
