  • 😉RULES: It’s time to love yourselves! choose your 5 (ish) favorite works you created in the past year (fics, art, edits, etc.) and link them below to reflect on the amazing things you brought  into the world in 2020. Tag as many writers/artists/etc. as you want  (fan or original) so we can spread the love and link each other to awesome works.

    I was tagged by @vtforpedro​ (thank you!!!)

    I’ve definitely had a lot of negative self-talk re: my own stuff this year (do not get into writing as a hobby if you self-compare…it’s just a recipe for problems lol) so. Took me a while to talk myself into actually doing this but here we go…

    1. There’s A Place For Us 

    This is my most recent completed multi-chapter Gradence fic. I’ll own here and now that it leans into a lot of tropes I probably make too much use of in my Gradence fics especially (Percy has recently been dumped or mistreated in some way, Credence is a sassbucket, weddings and/or proposals happen, they’re on vacation, etc.) But it was also one where I unapologetically drew from my own life, and used the fic to “exorcise” something that was kind of eating at me. My ex broke up with me in a very similar manner, for very similar reasons, as Newt dumps Percy in this fic, and it was lovely to see the outpouring of indignation on Percy’s behalf in the comment section. Felt like the people who read this were saying to me “you have every right to be upset,” and I can’t lie, it felt pretty damn good.

    2. Under your spell again

    Another Gradence, this time a oneshot, and my second-ever hypnokink piece. I love consensual hypnosis kink but for what I feel should be obvious reasons it took me a while to get brave enough to write it. I wrote an experimental one from Credence (the sub’s) POV for Kinktober, but this time I was a lot bolder with it and really drew out and leaned into the more Dom/sub elements of it, as well as included an induction scene (my actual weakness when it comes to hypnokink fic!!). It marked a turning point for me because it was the point where I realized that not only can I write heavy kink, but I can do it with *my* things that *I* like instead of just using the excuse of “oh it was a present fic” and that is…actually okay! Who knew? ;P

    3. The Naked Truth

    My first ever Riddlebird fic, and a present for someone who has now become a very good Fic Friend ^_^ I got a real kick out of coming up with crop top-related puns and thinking of all the ways that the Rogue Gallery would make fun of Oswald for dressing scandalously at a villain meeting, and even more of a kick out of imagining Colin Farrell the Pudgy Penguin in a crop top in the first place. ;) I’ve written other Riddlebird fics (and, unless I’m mistaken, apparently invented the Riddleflashpenguin tag) since then, but this one will always have a special place in my heart.

    4. What if your hand was my hand

    My first ABO, pairing The Lobster’s David with Perks of Being A Wallflower’s Patrick. I had a huge, *huge* issue with Alpha/Omega fic up to the point where I read a couple written by people I trusted…and while I still have yet to write the kind of messy ABO smut that those writers can pull off so well, I at least managed to write this little role-reversal one for Kinktober. Kinktober honestly was such a blast and I had so much fun with some of the prompts…but this was another one where I really Went For It and it felt really rewarding. (Also it gave me a real taste for David/Patrick, so that was a side bonus lol.)

    5. Ghostly Presents

    This Gradence fic started out as a fun little excuse to play with two tropes I love: “and they all went to Disneyland!” and “stoic-but-soft-hearted character cannot pull off a romantic gesture to save his life.” It was also my first crack at writing first person POV in a fic and gave me a new appreciation for my character’s emotions and motivations. But thanks to the encouragement of two lovely friends (who will be tagged in this post 😉) it has since become a series, which is my actual Baby and has given me the room to write things I never thought I could.


    I do have a hard time with Comment Envy (don’t lie, we’ve all been there lol) and sometimes I end up thinking “ugh, no one’s reading this! *sob*” But looking over past fics to make this post was a blast, and I sincerely have to thank vtforpedro for tagging me because looking at my work over this year I was just like “wow…I actually wrote a lot and Did My Best and I should be proud of that, dammit.” ^_^

    I’m tagging @black-eyed-creature and @indigo-apex because they’re awesome, and if you follow me and see this and want to do it, feel free! <3

  • The twist is easy to see coming. I find myself liking this movie quite a lot, with the single themes and all.

  • NEW FIC - COMPLETE!

    “Never such a blizzard before,” a David/Patrick Christmas oneshot.

    In this crossover between “The Lobster” and “The Perks of Being A Wallflower,” Patrick’s plan to take David home for Christmas is disrupted by unruly weather. David isn’t thrilled to have to crash at a hotel by the airport…but Patrick certainly isn’t complaining, not when it gives them a much-needed quiet night in.

    The Lobster (Yorgos Lantimos, 2015)

  • Watched The Lobster and it started intriguing and ended as a very personal nightmare! That I cannot recommend to anybody! First half was interesting with some cruel bits, second half was “we ARE going to hit spaceoperetta’s worst fear in the line of “this could potentially happen to her.’”

    I suddenly understood the disparity between the critics score and the rotten tomatoes score bc they had me in the first half and now I’m on my couch an unsettled feeling. And not in a “ooo how intriguing” way.

    Like I got it. I saw the themes and the binaries and what they were going for but NOPE.

  • By the way, I’d recommend to watch The Lobster by yourself, it turns out to be very disturbing and awkward in some scenes and having company may just make it worse. My poor mother was truly affected by it lol and I couldn’t enjoy it as much because I felt like if I laughed my mom would’ve thought “what the fuck is wrong with my daughter” :/
