i'm a little monster, i'll steal your heart and dominate you
All Tianshan! 🏀 🍔😈💘
What’s the fic you’ve written with the angstiest ending?
I'm... not an angst writer. It doesn't come naturally or easily to me. I guess Ghost By My Side is the heaviest on angst, but that's expected. Time's No Time At All, after that. I had a hard time writing that one, it was like pulling teeth, and I dislike it to the innermost circle of hell and back. I'm taking it down for editing soon, actually, but don't know when I'll touch it.
Have you ever received hate on a fic?
I can't say I have, which I'm rather offended by, 😂 My old stuff was RUBBISH. Absolute and non-recyclable rubbish. And yet not a single nasty word about any of it, how utterly disappointing, 🙈
Do you write smut? If so what kind?
Yes, sir, I do. All kinds? I'm rather picky but as long as it's tastefully approached one can pretty much write anything and it'll end up at least decent-ish. Overall, I write slash the most. Fully consensual, though I can go for dub-con depending on the circumstances. Scat, zoophilia and shota aside 🚫 I'm VERY open-minded.
Have you ever had a fic stolen?
Not that I know of?
Have you ever had a fic translated?
I had, once, to Spanish. But the original story was deleted and so was the translation.
Have you ever co-written a fic before?
Nope, not a published one at any rate. I am, at the moment, collaborating with my dearest @myscprin on a project, and also planning another with lovely @handsomechickendick. They have a lot of patience for me and my ramblings, 😇
What’s your all time favorite ship?
Uff. So many. I become obsessed, go on a binge, forget about them, and a couple years later it comes back with a vengeance. So I'll go with the ones that I never ever abandon: Hannigram, Eruri, Sterek, Napollya, Silverflint, Kurofai, ZoSan, DomBrian, Adoribull, Cablepool, Dreamhusbands, Hartwin, 00Q, Kastle (wow, the only m/f pair here deserves a 👏🏼 👏🏼 👏🏼), Symbrock... I'll stop here!
What’s a WIP that you want to finish but don’t think you ever will?
At the moment, I want and am planning to finish all my 2021 WIPs - Tianshan and Qiucheng stories mostly, and also some Hannigram, Symbrock, Jamos/Roci OT3 (The Expanse) and Eruri. The ones from 2012 and before that, however... 👀
I'd like to pick up the Duke/Nathan (Haven) with implied OT3 oneshot I had started though. And the UraIchi (Bleach) one also. Perhaps one day.
What are your writing strengths?
Pffft, if you'd asked my weaknesses I'd have an answer on the tip of my tongue: I am far too long-winded. Too much detail. Far too much.
My strengths... No idea, to be quite frank. Maybe that I care a whole lot about keeping characters actually in character? That's what I worry and stress about the most and is always my priority.
What are your thoughts on writing dialogue in other languages in a fic?
It really depends on the fandom, the characters, the story and language itself, for me. For some it reads naturally and beautifully, for others it makes sense, and then there are those where it's just cringe-inducing. If it happens in canon, chances are it'll fly or even do well in fanfiction. If it happens out of nowhere... Well.
Let's talk NBC Hannibal, for example. You can insert all kinds of languages in there - from Canon Lithuanian, Japanese, French, Italian and Latin to Spanish (because S4 would be Murder Husbands in Cuba, obviously) and many, many more. They're already pretentious and over-archiving SOBs, it won't be out of place at all.
Of course anything more than a few words or a couple or sentences at a time will be rather off-putting, regardless. It may break the flow of the story completely. One should thread lightly, for those are dangerous waters.
What was the first fandom you ever wrote for?
I used to write and doodle little Dragon Ball comics on a notebook when I was a little rugrat, 😂 but if we're talking published stuff I guess Rurouni Kenshin - Saito and Sano were 🔥
All of that was lost together with Geocities Groups, though. It was rubbish but it was my adored rubbish. Maybe I'll try to write for them again... 🤔
What’s your favorite fic you’ve ever written?
I don't have a favourite, I abhore all my writing equally. I am quite proud of Ghost By My Side, however. It came from deep inside, that one. I can confidently say I "felt" it. Something about Shingeki no Kyoujin - Erwin and Levi in particular - hits me right in the chest and leaves me bleeding. It was also the first piece a wrote in 2021 after a hiatus of 8 years; just a wee little note on my phone that came to mean so much to me.
The Moribundant Life, or, Grow Old Along with Whom?
BTW if you've requested a fic prompt with me and you're frustrated I haven't gotten to it yet or if you want something super specific, I do take fic commissions at a rate of $10 per thousand words and those always take top priority, just throwing that out there
I’m at a loss
Me, about Hannibal Lector: He's not scary, he just needs a little kiss on the forehead
- Snow and Dirty Rain, Richard Siken
Season 4 sees Hannibal in a fake moustache and glasses competing on The Great British Bake Off. He keeps mentioning, "my husband Will loves it when I make this recipe," and "this recipe is my husband's favorite," and "my husband Will said this recipe could use more salt..."
me waiting to see who terry kills for kreese
Will recognizes his inability to look at the murder scenes and not get stuck there early into the Garrett Jacob Hobbs case - instead of sticking it out and letting the ghosts catch up to him, Will makes a hasty retreat. He quickly makes a life for himself as a motorcycle mechanic, serving the locals and enjoying his solitude. Fate, however, can't be denied.
Check out what happens when a fleeing Hannibal walks into Will's shop with a repair need of his own.
Will: *Shane Medej voice* Ya know, if you kill me Hannibal I'm gonna have a hard time forgiving you
what, are Hannibal and Will gonna run away together? Thats some gay ass Bonnie and Clyde shit
Against my Will, I love you.
