very sexy and intelligent of you to notice! ty lol
4. what does it take for you to be proud of something you’ve written?
this is a really tough question. I think for fic, it needs to be something that I enjoy reading back to myself. for example, I just posted a fic a couple weeks ago (the poetic condition) that I didn’t really like it at first, but then I re-read it a couple times when going to respond to comments and realized, oh, I actually enjoy reading this myself. that makes writing fun for me, because I feel like i’ve created some of the content that I myself love to consume. I also am proud of fics which have a specific line or image that I feel is memorable - for instance, in my ‘command me to be well’ fic, like, everyone in the comments pointed out a specific line, and I was like, cool, that means I sort of connected with people, even if just for those few words. and I’m proud of that.
for original stories, it’s much more difficult - I tend to want a story to have at least a semi-original commentary or approach, but I also want the characters be, if not relatable, then sympathetic; and I want the imagery to be good, too. so I set a much higher bar for original stories, which is perhaps why I can’t think of one I’ve written which I can point to and go ‘that, I’m proud of that’
6. are your projects driven more by character or plot?
character all the way. for fic, I think it’s easy to see why - I’m here for joe and nicky, I’m not here for plot, you know? - but I think it’s true in my original writing as well, just because I find people to be so much more interesting than any weird confabulation of events an author could try and contrive.
17. how do you determine what mood each project has?
this is interesting because I’m not sure quite that I think about projects as having moods. I mean, I suppose they do, but I think it’s just a thing that sort of appears when writing. although I will say, I’m working on an original story right now that it turned out I was approaching from the wrong angle (too serious; needed humor) and so in that sense I think I it’s important to look sometimes at the topic you’re trying to convey and, if it’s dark or a heavy topic, bring some element of lightness to it so it’s bearable for the reader. but, yeah, this question is tough - a more deliberate approach to moods is probably something I need to work on in my writing.

You’ll go forwards again”
I get time travel vibes, okay? So, like, the ninja all get scattered through time? It’s the Time Twins’s fault, obviously.
And they’re all trying to figure out where and when they are and how to get home.

Ooh, both people I’ve put solidly in the naruto category before… Hmm
In this combination, I think izuku would be the elf. Leans way more into the woodland aesthetic. Lots of flowers. So many, so so many, flowers. Momo is tired of getting flowers. Momo would go for the naruto cosplay, not any of naruto’s friends here.

Dabi, dramatic jerk he is, Absolutely cosplays as the elf. Filthy little elf who may or may not wash his hair, but elf all the same. He revels in the discomfort of others. Hawks snaps and instead of going for the stabbing route, heroically chooses the high ground of annoying him back with Naruto cosplay. Dabi then attacks with firery ‘elf magic’ but don’t worry even though Hawks is weak to flames he makes it
14) At what point in writing do you come up with a title?
at whatever point in the writing process where I understand what I want the story to be. often, my titles are hints to major themes in the story so once I know what that is, I’m golden. examples)
for us to collide: pulled from the poem by Jessica Katkoff “We kept crossing paths, near misses and almosts, when all I ever wanted was for us to collide.” which I thought was a neat little nod to Mari’s whole thing of coming and going from Gotham and running into the batfamily over and over again
what a lion cannot manage: is from an old german proverb, the full quote being “what the lion cannot manage to do the fox can” which has lots of layers for the story but the more important ones is that Izuku/Izumi is a fox yokai and the story itself is a canon rewrite making my izuku the fox and OG izuku the lion.
born of the stars: from Daniel Walsh: “You were born of the stars, dear girl; stop settling for the dust they leave behind.” and the whole fic is basically another canon rewrite focusing on girl!Lance and how she along with her cobbled together found family makes everything better through being kind and shit
Do you ever regret joining/staying in band?
All the time :)))))
(My band program is great, but my band director himself is the most disgusting person I’ve ever met)
Thanks for the ask!
homesick: to me, home is being with my best friend, my mind goes to one trip where we went to the beach and stayed there a night. home can also be the hill by my house, where it’s really pretty in the evenings :)
rose-coloured goggles: i’ll be honest i don’t remember one ajdajsdajd- besides those little white lies you tell to sneak some candy into your bedroom or something i never really took a whole bunch of risks
laughing: i don’t really have a best joke now that i think about it, although i do kind of like “why did the chicken cross the road?” “why?” “to get to the idiot’s house. knock knock” “who’s there?” “the chicken” it never fails to ever so slightly piss someone off ajsfhasdjf
thank you for the ask blu!!
