Genre: Angst, Future Smut/Mature scenes, Arranged Marriage! AU
Summary: He is the successor of his family’s business empire, and you are the female heir of yours. After the trouble his older brother had created in the past, he now must face certain requirements needed for the sake of the family’s future and to save his rights of inheritance, and you become his only way out. Everything might seem so simple, just the way they are supposed to. But nothing is ever what it seems, doesn’t it?
as some of you know already, music is pretty much essential for me whenever I need to write emotional scenes. I have dozens of playlists that fit each genre and even particular stories of mine, but I figured I could condense in one list the pieces I always go back to, and that help me get in a particular mood. :)

➼ Prompts: “What if you find your soulmate… at the wrong time?” - Lauren Kate, Passion
➼ Summary: Be careful for what you wish for, because you may never know how to deal with them once it comes true. What would you do when your wish for a second chance actually came true? But was it really a fulfilled wish? Too many questions lie when it actually happened. Were they real memories? Or perhaps a part of a past life? Was it only a dream all along? Will everything be different this time?

Is the bad guy in your story just a bit too depressed and morose about being villainous? Pep them up with a reminder of just how fun it is to be evil! An upbeat and (at times) silly playlist for writing those chaotic antagonists that are having just a bit too much fun doing what they do best.

hello! so I get asked sometimes whether or not I listen to music while writing, or if there’s any songs I recommend listening to while reading certain fics. so finally I made a spotify playlist that I can make public, and you can find the link to it HERE! these songs are mostly the types that I listen to when writing angst specifically, such as with future hearts, loving him loving her, I hate you I love you, ect. so it’s really just music that fits the ‘’’atmosphere’’’ that I picture those types of stories to have when writing them. but anyways I hope you guys enjoy it for those that’re interested~
These song’s are bursting at the seams with emotional weight, and it can be therapeutic to indulge in someone else’s overwhelming thoughts. These songs are relatable, nostalgic, depressing, and honest, and they’re well worth a listen.
Hey frens! I just wanted to share a little link to the Spotify playlist I listen to when writing. I’ve wanted one that wouldn’t distract me and cause me to sing along, so I knocked one up myself- Just in case you wanted to have a listen ^_^
So I asked my partner to rec me some good dark music to use for writing the lead up to the arc end, and the arc end, and by god did he deliver. No vocals, just beautifully atmospheric moody music. I recommend it for any of my tense chapters, the last few scenes of upcoming chapter 19, and several sections of the yet unwritten chapter 20.
[AFTER THE BOMB] is a writing mix about gray skies, gas masks, and a nuclear winter that will end everything as we know it. The wind stops, the sea is still, and the earth has begun to rot. Our world is… dying.
This playlist contains 17 of my favorite tracks for writing post- apocalyptic settings, abandoned cities, and radioactive wastelands. You remember the bomb and the first nuclear snow. It seemed so harmless back then, when it was just snowflakes and soot. The world has changed, though. You venture out of your safe house. You attempt to travel to the city, with the hopes of finding an answer to the question that has been killing you faster than the cold and the starvation. You venture past corpses in the snow and the skeleton of a skyscraper. The world is deathly quiet, and you know why. You’re living through the last winter. But, you think there is a way to undo the poison that is killing the planet.
