You’re such a stunning person and a talented writer!!! What’s the thing you’re proudest of having written? You have plenty of awesome stuff to choose from :)

OH MY GOSH, NONNY.  *blush*  ^_^  I have no idea what prompted this, but thank you so much!  ^_____^

As for the thing I’m proudest of having written, I’d say it probably changes fairly often, actually.  I don’t think there’s really one thing that I’m proudest of writing, but there will be small pieces of a lot of different stories that I’m proud of, moments that I thought I really accomplished what I set out to do with a piece of writing, you know?

A few of the pieces that stick out in my mind, atm, though, since you asked… ^_~

I’m pretty proud of No Man Is An Island, particularly the first chapter.  I was aiming for a particular style of writing – lyrical & folklore-ish – and I think I actually managed it.  I’m not sure I’ve held onto it in recent chapters, but at least in the beginning, it sounds very much how I wanted it to sound.  ^_^

The middle section of the most recent chapter of Muet – This was the first thing I wrote after discovering what filter words were and it was my first attempt to consciously remove them from my writing.  And I feel like in doing so, I finally achieved that dark, noir feel that I’d been aiming for with this story all along.  (Word of warning to anyone who isn’t following this story already – it’s dark.  VERY dark.  Please head the warnings.  O_o;;;)

And finally, any list of stories I’m proud of has to include To Make His Mistress Laugh.  It was the first LM story I wrote once I’d started actually reading the brick and thus realized exactly how much fanon I’d allowed myself to believe was canon up until that point.  This was one of those stories where I tried to turn it around and set it right and I’m still pretty proud of it for that.  Also because Bahorel.  And because I’m still inordinately fond of the pairing I ended up writing for this fic and I think I captured the voice of the other half of the ship better here than I ever have in any other story.  ^_^

There are probably others, in other fandoms, most of them very small, but these are probably the most recent.  ^_^

Thank you, again, nonny!  You totally made my night with this message!  ^_____^

is there anything you CAN’T do? I sincerely mean that, because it seems to me like your skill/talent arsenal is just kind of endless, and I’m just wondering how you manage that on top of being such a kind, interesting, passionate person :)

*squeaks!!*

*blush*

OMG, nonny!  *^_^*  I honestly don’t know what to say.  ^_^  Thank you so much! 

(OMG, I’ve dithered over this response for like 20 minutes because I really DON’T know what to say.  O_o;;;  I’m actually kind of baffled that people see me this way.  -.-;;;  I never feel like I’m particularly talented or anything?  I just try my hand at things that seem fun and if they are, I keep doing them until I get better?  (I also have trouble believing that people find me interesting, but that’s a lifetime of low self esteem at play, so I’ll try to take your word for that, too? OTZ)) 

But yeah, I guess basically I just wanted to say THANK YOU because that was such an unbelievably kind thing of you to say and I’m going to be squeaking over it for the rest of the day because I’M NOT WORTHY, but you are awesome, nonny.  So, thank you, again!  ^___________^

(Also, OMG, there’s PLENTY I can’t do, so don’t feel bad on that score!  ;D)

E, P, & Q! :)

  • E – Have you added anything cracky/hilarious to your fandom, if so, what
  • I honestly don’t think I have?  I don’t tend to write much humor.  And even my ideas that start out as crack end up Very Serious.  -.-;;;

    P – Invent a random AU for any fandom (we always need more ideas)

    A random AU for any fandom?  OK, so I’ve knocked this one around in my head more than once, but I haven’t posted much about it.  I would LOVE to see a Cal Leandros/Nightlife AU for Les Mis.  Mainly because I want to write a Goodfellow!Courfeyrac SO BADLY.  SO SO BADLY.  I actually wrote a tiny snippet of it as part of a writing meme if anyone’s interested.  ^_~

    OH HEY.  Apparently I did also write a bit of crack!AU in that same post.  Canon era!Combeferre wakes up mid Act I of Memphis in Killian’s body and meets Fra.  *laughs*  I forgot about that!  ;D

  • Q – A ship you’ve abandoned and why
  • Oh, no.  I haven’t COMPLETELY abandoned this ship, because it’s kind of impossible to in this fandom, but… you know what?  This is going to get me in so much trouble, so how about it goes behind a cut?

    e/R.  -.-;;;  I came into this fandom through the e/R gateway, and I still have some nostalgic feelings for them, I still write them on occasion, and I certainly still enjoy Joe and Jason e/Ring all over each other at the drop of a hat, but I just really don’t see those characters that way anymore?  Part of that is that more and more, Grantaire is my precious aro/ace bb, and part of that is that the fandom is just so flooded with e/R and I was starting to want more variety, because at heart, I’m a multi-shipper.  But yeah, I’m definitely not on that bandwagon anywhere near the way I used to be.  Sorry!

    Thank you! I’ve got some ideas off pilferingapple’s reblog and seeing as this is due in tomorrow (2am completion, here I come….) don’t worry about it ^_^ thank you for all your help through all of this, it’s been so useful! I would love to show you the finished product (even though it is ***awful***) but I’ll have to check with my teacher – sometimes they don’t like us sharing our coursework online :(

    You’re welcome, nonny!  I’m just so glad I was able to help you out in some small way.  ^_^  And don’t stress about showing the finished product to me – if your teacher doesn’t want you to do that, I respect that.  Hopefully they’ll disagree with your “awful” assessment, too!  You’ve but a lot of work and a lot of passion into this thing and you deserve to have that recognized.  I hope it goes well for you and I wish you the best of luck in the future – don’t be a stranger!  ^_^

    guess who’s back, essay anon’s back :’) i was wondering if you could give me some pointers on why the thenardiers treat eponine so badly once the inn has closed down? i’m finding it difficult to get quotes.. thank youu!

    Hello, essay nonny!  ^_^  I hope you’ve been well!

    Anyway, I unfortunately don’t have time to go looking atm (have company coming over in 15 minutes O_o;;;), but I’m sure it exists.  (Though I’m afraid it may boil down to “The Thenardiers are just all around awful people.”  😛  So until I have time to do a bit of digging, I’ll toss it out to my followers.  Anyone have any thoughts?

    Hi!! I come bearing all kinds of fun facts- The sounds of ET walking was made by someone squishing her hands in jelly- The tip of a bull whip moves so fast that the sound it makes is actually a mini sonic boom- A “Jiffy” is the scientific name for 1/100th of a second- Coca-Cola would be green if the food colorant wasn’t added- and The silkworm consumes 86,000 times its own weight in 56 days (its me). I hope you feel better soon, you definitely deserve good days :) <3

    oh oh oh also, i forgot to mention – you should listen to the Hamilton soundtrack! It’s really good and I think you’ll like it

    Those are some fun facts, nonny!  I had no idea that a ‘jiffy’ was an actual scientific term, but that’s pretty fantastic.  ^_^  And the thought of green Coca-Cola is flat out bizarre to me, but mostly because I’m used to it being black.  *snerts*  I remember a time in my youth when they made it clear and it was the weirdest freaking thing!  XD

    And I am WELL acquainted with Hamilton, never you fear!  I saw it once at the Public and once on Broadway and count myself very, very lucky to have done so.  I also do own a copy of the cast recording and can’t ever seem to start listening to it without listening to the whole thing.  Though, I’m sure I’m not the only person with this problem.  ;D

    Anyway, thank you for all the cool facts and good wishes.  ^_^  I really appreciate it!
