you must write and read

recommended reading~

while you’re waiting for me to post or just looking for suggestions, i hope this helps! it took me ages to compile and i’ll update as i come across new pieces, so i hope that both readers and writers alike appreciate this’=) as a reader i know how satisfying it is to read quality fics, and as a writer i know how gratifying it is when someone acknowledges your work. i’ll be honest, it’s mostly smut and lots of fantasy!au because i am a mermaid princess, so of course i’m always thirsty; BUT it’s not all that this list is, i assure you there’s a nice mix of everything~

THE FOUR THATCHERS THAT TRICK YOUR PERCEPTION

“The Thatcher Effect, also known as the Thatcher illusion, illustrates that the brain can’t properly process a photo of a face that is upside down. The interesting part is that the brain thinks it can so you get a confident feeling that everything is alright, until you turn it over.”(thatchereffect.com)

“The Thatcher effect or Thatcher illusion is a phenomenon where it becomes more difficult to detect local feature changes in an upside-down face, despite identical changes being obvious in an upright face. It is named after the former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, on whose photograph the effect was first and most famously demonstrated.” (Wikipedia)

The brain is conditioned to see what it expects to see rather than what is presented with. No matter how obvious it is, the brain will still think what it sees must be right. (sounds too familiar, doesn’t it?)

And you read my writing upside down.

You Must Be This Tall To Read This Fic

Prompt: Could you write something where Jason has a short s/o and him always having to bend over and the reader having to stand on their tiptoes when they kiss, and him having to reach things for them or putting things out of reach? Just domestic fluff please by anon

“What the actual fuck do you think you are doing?” Y/N heard as she felt two arms wrap around her waist and pull her off the counter.

She had been trying to find something and it wasn’t on the lower shelves so she had climbed up on the counter. When she had still been unable to find what she needed, she had stood up on the counter and continued her search.

So Jason had walked into the kitchen to find his girlfriend literally standing on the counter and looking through the cabinet.

“I was getting something.” Y/N explained as he put her on the ground.

“And you couldn’t have pulled up a chair? Jesus Christ, Y/N, you almost gave me a heart attack. I almost died. Again.” Jason said, gripping his chest dramatically.

“I didn’t think about that. And it is your fault anyway for putting everything on the top shelf anyway.” Y/N said as she grabbed a chair and pulled it over to the cabinet she had previously been looking in.

Jason just smirked and watched her continue looking. “Do you need some help?” He asked sickeningly sweet.

“Not from you, you fucking giant.” Her voice sounded a little echoey because her head was currently in the cabinet.

“What are you even looking for anyway?” He asked as he watched her close the cabinet with a sigh.

“My sewing supplies. They were in a cookie tin, but now I cannot find it.” Y/N said as she got down from the chair. Jason thought about it for a minute before pulling the chair to a cabinet so high up even he needed help reaching it. He stood on it for a minute and pulled a cookie tin out.

“Is this it?” He asked, holding it out to her.

Y/N took it and opened it up to find actual cookies. “Of course.” She sighed. “The one time I don’t want cookies would be the one time this is the actual cookie tin. Are there any more tins up there?”

Jason looked back into the cabinet. “Nope, that was the only one.” He got down and put the chair back up. “Sorry, babe. For once I didn’t actually hide it.” He came over and leaned down to kiss her cheek. “You want to watch a movie?”

“Sure, I don’t have anything else to do. What did you have in mind?” Y/N asked as she let him lead her to the couch.

“I picked last time, it is your turn.” He said as he settled on the couch. She quickly found something that she liked and put it on. She sat on the couch and leaned against Jason, then she put her legs up on the couch and stretched them out.

One of the few times she would ever be thankful for being short, she could usually stretch out comfortably on a couch.

She had almost fallen asleep when Roy came in. 

“Hey, who took my cookie tin and filled it with sewing supplies?”

blissfultxuch  asked:

“If you want to write, if you want to create, you must be the most sublime fool that God ever turned out and sent rambling. You must write every single day of your life. You must read dreadful dumb books and glorious books, and let them wrestle in beautiful fights inside your head, vulgar one moment, brilliant the next. You must lurk in libraries and climb the stacks like ladders to sniff books like perfumes and wear books like hats upon your crazy heads. I wish you a wrestling match with your Creative Muse that will last a lifetime. I wish craziness and foolishness and madness upon you. May you live with hysteria, and out of it make fine stories — science fiction or otherwise. Which finally means, may you be in love every day for the next 20,000 days. And out of that love, remake a world.”  – Ray Bradbury

anonymous asked:

Hi, I hope you don't mind me asking but would you recommend any books to read? I'm trying to decide what next to read, and I thought I like your writing so I'll ask what you would rec? Don't worry about genre, just any book you'd think one should read or anything that inspires your writing ? I love your writing so automatically felt you must read books with depth. I hope this ask doesn't feel too pushy or intrusive. Thank you :)

Hahaha, oh my god. I don’t consume as much published fiction as I should (so much fanfiction. So little time) so I’m probably not the best person for book recs that aren’t classics/things you’d probably read for school, so :P but I can tell you some books that have stuck with me over the years or have informed portions of my works!

The entire Middle-earth legendarium (the Hobbit, LotR, the Silm) by J.R.R Tolkien has been with me since sixth grade, and I guess his attention to detail in worldbuilding really rubbed off on me! The Hobbit is a very short light read, though you’ll probably get irritated at the lack of female characters. LotR requires stamina because he goes on and on and on about Tom Bombadil for a chapter or two and it’s… It reads like a history book. Because he made up LotR to disseminate his elvish languages Sindarin and Quenya. It wasn’t the other way around. And it’s pretty obvious. (And the Silm is even more of a history book, but with added Elves Behaving Badly. and suffering.)

Tess of the D’Urbervilles by Thomas Hardy is one of my favourite pieces of classic literature, not only because Thomas Hardy drags 19th century British society for their double standards regarding female sexuality but also the prose is so beautiful? There’s a scene where Angel Clare carries Tess across a river and it’s nothing but doki doki schmoop schmoop in the most beautiful of words, and now that I really think about it no wonder most of the selkie AU was also doki doki schmoop schmoop in pretty words. I love Tess so much, I would fuckin die for her, and fuck EL James for completely misinterpreting the entire novel in Fifty Shades.

Much Ado About Nothing by William Shakespeare is probably one of my favourite comedies of his (but I like. am a huge Shakespeare nerd? check out my Shakespeare sideblog @eighttwotwopointthreethree lmao). I’ve got mixed feelings about the slutshaming section of it but like, it’s pretty obvious that Claudio is a foil to Benedick when that plot point rears its ugly head so like. Kill Claudio amirite. Anyway. The point is, the entire setup between Bea and Ben is fucking amazing and @actualyuuri and I super duper want to see a Viktuuri AU set to Much Ado for this reason

(I could also talk about Julius Caesar, and Twelfth Night, and Richard III, and Romeo and Juliet – but then I’d be here all day. I love Shakespeare so much)

Never Let Me Go by Kazuo Ishiguro fucked. Me. Up. That quiet moody introspective narration! This terrible dystopian universe told in such a soft way!!! Pls let me live oh my god. 

Life on Mars by Tracey K Smith is a book of poems that she wrote to work out her feelings around her father’s death, couching it in stuff about the endless unknown of space (and also David Bowie). I feel like her style of poetry at least lowkey influenced some of the poems in the selkie AU? Also I just love space poems.

The Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood is so… relevant. And I’m so pumped for the Hulu miniseries oh my god. It’s a really gripping, slightly terrifying in the current climate kind of read. 

The Princess of Cleves by Mme de Lafayette. oH MY GOD OH MY GOD. I know like most French students hate having to read this novel but I am SO ALIVE, I LIVE for longwinded descriptions of how fuckin besotted M de Nemours is, I LIVE for the sweet sweet drama of people who clearly wanna bone each other deciding not to and then pining away terribly forever and ever. (I also LIVE for the ending lmfao because that’s exactly how I like het media to end.) Anyway, if I were to write a period drama Viktuuri AU I would probably utilise elements of the plot of the Princess of Cleves that is how much I love this novel okay. You’ll probably see influences from it in my writing from the way a lot of the action gets driven by introspection and stream of consciousness, so yeah.

Also, I don’t know if you also want nonfiction recs, but I really enjoyed Day of Empire by Amy Chua, the Dark Net by Jamie Bartlett, How to Ruin a Queen: Marie Antoinette and the Diamond Necklace Affair by Johnathan Beckman (it doesn’t even read like a history book it reads more like a whodunit!) and oh. my god. The Reluctant Empress by Brigitte Hamann. I am such trash for this biography of the Empress Elisabeth I of Austria. I would also probably put in elements of the early parts of her life into this hypothetical period drama AU for Viktuuri because fuckin Franz Joseph disregarded all of his duties to watch his fiancee get her portrait done like he’s not the fuckin Emperor of Austria? What the hell? And she commissioned portraits of herself in deshabille for an anniversary present??? which he hung over his desk like BABE. DON’T PUT NUDES OF YOUR WIFE UP IN YOUR OFFICE OH MY GOD. (like I recognise that her story was ultimately super duper tragic and the Habsburgs are all just a big mess but every time I think about this stuff I just die a little on the inside from happiness so)

Anyway that’s probably enough to get you started, and I’m sorry for my disintegrating coherency. Like I said I really should read more published works! Pretty high on my list rn is the Miniaturist by Jessie Burton mostly because I stole so much of what happened to her regarding the publication and success of that novel for the selkie AU that I’m really genuinely interested in what caused such hype lmao. So yeah happy reading!

Until we meet Chapter 12: KlarolineInfinity 1, a vampire diaries fanfic | FanFiction

KLAROLINE DRABBLE REC

This is exactly what I wanted to see in canon, I’m not joking. Thank you to the talented @ashleigh-jewitt-xx for giving me a Klaroline reunion after Liz died. It was equal parts emotional and beautiful. And that ending, gah I just want more ; ) Thank you for writing this, luv! A definite must read.

by the meaning of love. A man who is
incapable of having anything else.

You must write while being anyone,
everyone and while not being the
person you will always be. Must walk
identity across letters with meaning.

You must write about this occasion,
as a star suddenly crosses the mind
and there is only a space to see it.
You must write about it while crying.

You must write with possibility, an empty
page which is read by someone
with crystalline eyes deep inside of her.
You must write with a lonely child.

Hi--so I have to tell you, like so many of your other stories, I really love TWS. I wouldn't even care if you only updated once a month (okay I might be sad) but the wait however long is always worth it! Seriously you've made me want to try and start writing even though I think I might be awful at it, but I'm kind of hoping it will be therapeutic in a way after my breakup. Or I'll write something and I'll never let anyone read it haha

Oh, you must start writing! Everyone needs a creative outlet, especially in the wake of a break up.

If you want to write, if you want to create…you must write every single day of your life. You must read dreadful dumb books and glorious books, and let them wrestle in beautiful fights inside your head…I wish you a wrestling match with your creative muse that will last you a lifetime. I wish craziness and foolishness and madness upon you. May you live with hysteria, and out of it make fine stories…may you be in love every day for the next 20,000 days.
