eleutheria-has-won asked: :D :D :D So excited!!!! So, I know AR has a vague idea of how old Seb is, but isn't exactly sure how accurate it is. How old is Seb, actually?
Ahahaha. You have seen through my clever dodge. He’s ambiguous.
Mentally he’s all over the map, chronologically he’s god knows, physically… he’s probably… less than 8? More than 6? What are kids how do.
No, okay, I know how to do this thematically. He’s half of 13. So 6 1/2. Official-like.
He might be aging at normal speed. He might not. He’s a complex person. :p
ahaha XD is this representative of the narration/pov character? cuz interested now.
Yep! It’s from Karen Chance’s Cassandra Palmer series which is pretty cute, if fairly typical paranormal urban fantasy stuff. The author is pretty funny and has that (apparently) rare ability of writing female leads with different personalities. Her spin-off series (Dorina Basarab) is about a dhampir who is a badass and takes no shit and also has occasional blood rages and spends a good portion of one book running around with a head in a bag.
am I sick from anxiety or am I actually physically ill? a memoir by me
am i lazy or horribly depressed: the sequel
does everyone hate me or am I just very insecure: the completion of the trilogy

I don’t know if you know this but here’s a live feed of porn searches being made right now.
this is absurdly pleasing
That is surreal.
It really does a wonderful job of highlighting just how very strange everyone in the world who isn’t me is.
but how do I choose a favorite?
"godzilla vs ramon"
or the concise, yet elegant “dames”
Anonymous asked: (1/2) hi i just wanted to say that your cyberbunny au is p much my #1 favorite hs fic, and 90% of it is bc your writing is fab, but a v important 10% is bc you do this great thing where you make the reader question the intersection between text+subtext? like, we're socialized to read anger as sexual tension, and sometimes i look at comments+reactions and several people are def reading a lot of the early interaction between AR/kankri as sexual tension, and while i don't think that's necessarily
(2/2) invalid (this is the anon that asked about kankri makeouts, so) i also feel that you make it VERY clear that AR’s anger/confusion/physiological reactions to kankri are extremely legitimate. like, while i def read a subconscious attraction even while kankri was kidnapped (the cake scene where AR’s gaze sort of fixates) you also give AR’s fury a lot of weight, + in a world where a person’s anger is often swept under the rug in favor of going “sexual tension!” i thought that was really great.
Oh, wow, thank you. I love this analysis; it’s really interesting to me to see how my writing comes across!
Because, yeah. AR’s got really good reasons to be pissed. And Kankri’s got really good reasons to be pissed. And while some of those come out of misunderstandings and lack of knowledge they also come out of fundamentally different value structures and priorities. I don’t think either point of view invalidates the other.
Thanks again so much for writing to me! I love talking meta about this fic; it occupies such a big chunk of my brain.
meet-cute writing prompt
Auds. Auds, oh my god. You beautiful, beautiful person. <3
He was a boy, she was an ancient god of warfare and chaos. Can I make it any more obvious?
"Pathetic human king! Your broken oaths have offended the gods and brought my wrath down upon you! There is no escape!"
The voice rumbles, shaking the ground and scattering the sheep. As it echoes across the plain, an overwhelmingly beautiful woman explodes into view with a cloud of smoke and flames. Her skin is the deep color of unlit coal and her hair glows like embers. She brandishes a sword bigger than she is tall.
The goddess steps forward and freezes at the sound of her foot squelching into something unpleasant.
