alright I’m just gonna say it in star trek 2009 bones & kirk have the tropiest relationship possible and I will never be over it. they met on a shuttle, both at the lowest points in their lives, and drunk!bones threatens to puke on jim??? and proceeds to be the most dramatic mf? “All I got left r my bones” and instead of being like ok bye jim grabs on to this man and says this is my best friend. and then spend the next few years in academy as best friends!!!! and when jim gets in trouble and can’t go to space, bones drugs him so he can get on board the ship bc he can’t leave him behind, not only bc it’s jim’s dream to be in the black, but bc bones can’t imagine going without him. what in the ao3 was that shit

hello miss intermundia, i'm a fellow writer who would DEARLY like to contribute to the obikin community, but one who doesn't, in fact, know how to start writing. i'm the worst at beginnings, and your fic started on such a perfect note that i would love some advice, if you'd be so kind as to give it to me and any other starters in this game. love your work!
Thank you so much, and I can’t wait to see what you write, anon!!! The obikin community is perpetually starved of content, from what I understand 😂
Don’t be afraid to write a really, really bad first draft! Nobody will see it. I would share some of mine to make you feel better but honestly that breaks the point (and would be impossible, I’ll explain why in a second). Nobody will see it. Make it bad, silly, boring, cliche, whatever. You can fix it in editing once you’ve really found the story.
There’s a huge hurdle if you want the perfect beginning before you fill up the rest of the page. Just feel free to jump in medias res (into the middle of things) with some dialogue or some action—write your favorite part of the story first, and then let the beginning come naturally after that.
I’ll sort of give you an example—“We are in their Temple rooms and Anakin is sad. Anakin is sad because Obi-Wan won’t pay attention to him. Obi-Wan is busy working. Anakin is a brat. Obi-Wan ignores him. Anakin says ‘Please, Master’. Obi-Wan says ‘Fine, come here.’”
Then, line-by-line, turn those basic sentences into full paragraphs, embroidering every line with emotional and environmental detail, and you could end up with something like the first blowjob scene of LT. Once you have a rich scene, I promise the beginning will write itself.
That’s also why I couldn’t even really find a first draft to share even if I wanted to, because they get consumed and transformed as I actually write the whole story. That’s just my writing advice in general. Write a bad outline, or just write down a conversation, whichever works, and then fill it out :)
