1, 19, 34, & 23?
1. from one to five stars, how would you rate your writing?
like, three. i don't think i'm anything extraordinary and i have a lot of repeated tropes for lack of a better word, but i think i have a good enough grasp on vocabulary, grammar, characterisation, etc. that makes my pieces at least bearable to read.
19. do you prefer canon-compliant, AUs, or something in-between?
i already answered this, but in case you don't feel like clicking, i copied my answer below:
as much as i write canon compliant, i absolutely love doing canon divergence episode fics and i have so many ideas for them that i'll hopefully get around to writing eventually. that being said, i like to read AUs the most, especially high school and bookstore ones.
23. do you prefer prompt challenges or completely independent ideas?
always prompt challenges because, as much as i write for myself, i love knowing people are interested in what i'm putting out into the world, and receiving prompts is one of the best ways to have that satisfaction.
34. copy and paste an excerpt you're partially fond of (from don’t know how to admit that i'm broken)
David's fingers make their way to the nape of Patrick's neck, playing with the tiny hairs at the base for a moment in an attempt to relax his tense nerves. He's never minded lying down with Patrick and absentmindedly distracting him; he'll do anything to make sure he feels secure as he never had someone there to ground him through life and is more than well aware of how lonely it feels to tread through life like it's a livewire the thickness of a penny.
Nobody deserves to ever feel like that, especially not Patrick.
He opens and closes his mouth a few times before finally letting the syllables out so close together it sounds as if it's all one word. "Sometimes I don't feel like I'm gay enough."
David is confused, so he asks for clarification. "What do you mean?"
"Like, I love you. We both know I love you and I'm comfortable with the label gay, but when I see people like Ken who are so open about their sexuality, I wonder what I did wrong along the way to lead me... here. I mean, everyone stares at me and automatically assumes I'm straight. Hell, even you did!"
David pulls his hand away from his neck to sit them both up. "First off, I didn't think you were straight; I was in denial and trying to repress the fact that Alexis was correct about me having feelings for you," A sloppy grin plays at the corner of Patrick's lips, however, it falters just as fast as it appeared. "And there's no certain way to be gay, you just simply are. Confidence is something that you build up in time the longer you embrace who you are. I don't expect you and nobody else expects you to be this flamboyant, ballet dancer, Beyoncé-loving stereotypical gay man only a couple years into your discovery. In fact, I personally find it charming how you break society's norms in terms of what gay is supposed to look like."
↳ send me as many numbers as you'd like from this list !
