I woke up today and I got a notification from one of my readers, she said that I inspired her to make a book of her own 😍😍😍 that really made my day, for reals! it makes me so happy to know I inspired someone to do something. it makes me feel that I actually do have a purpose in life 💖
Or writing fanfic!
Thank you for all the love and support. It seems I always miss the mark on when I reach the milestone numbers. Tipping over at 106 the last time and now 207 this time. It seems to be a pattern, hahaha. But in any case I wanted to say thank you, this little dweeb is incredibly honoured that you read, like and enjoy the content I’ve been writing.
This feels huge to me for so many reasons. One of the biggest is that writing is a way of escapism for me and another form of self-expression. It helps me convey and understand my thoughts. As well as very much being very much a creative outlet for myself. To know people enjoy and hold stories dear. Feel the emotions that I want to present, means that I as a writer; I’m doing the best I can for the readers and audience that want to feel, live and breath the story.
I’ve been told I’m quite the story writer in the past (school years) or then shut down by another shortly after. So, my confidence does waver and that’s why recently I’ve been a bit silent. Among other things going on in life. I never want it to effect what I love doing and have a passion for, because I know the moment I start hating something I’ve written it’s a very hard rut to get out of.
Yet, in saying all that. Making this Tumblr account was completely a whim because I couldn’t find anyone else to write with around the Peaky Blinder universe. I have to say, I didn’t expect the growth or the people I’ve met through this writing journey. One thing is for certain though. I’ll never regret any of this. I’ve made some amazing friends and had the chance to write some people’s visions for stories and it is awesome!
So thank you! Thank you for everything. It means the world and so much more at this hectic time in everyone’s lives.
PS. Hope you enjoy Alfie and Tommy practising the art of social distancing. Of course, Alfie is fully equip to kick-arse during this madness since he’s got his buddy Cyril with him.
Ok so all fic writers/readers know of whumptober, fuckuary, fluffuary, and others but what I have come to realize is that there aren’t really any in the summer months
So here’s my idea: A WHOLE MONTH OF CLICHES
So here’s what I need from people
- Do you think this is a good idea?
- Which month should it be?
- Good names for the month (such as whumptober)
- Cliches you would like added to the list
Anyway it would mean a lot if you guys could reblog or comment what you think
When you misspell a word so badly that even autocorrect and google are just like, “yeah, I dunno what to tell you, man.”
This week’s fanfic was commissioned for UCI law student @emilylivermore.

I desperately want to start writing this new chapter because I get to write for a new character, but I’m dreading writing the opening sequence because there’s a lot of politics to communicate. And you know how I am about dialogue. (This chapter is 90% dialogue ☠️)
Just made an ao3 account!AHH I’M SO EXICTED!!
Hey everyone! I wanted to do a huge update on what has been going on in life. In January I decided to take a personal break from writing fan fiction and roleplaying. I was suffering through a major creative/writing block, and I needed to overcome it somehow.
To spare the details, I started working on myself and doing stuff for me. It felt great, and I started to feel better creatively. I’m sure most of you are surprised to see me back. I am opening back up my requests, so feel free to send them in! I’d love to start writing for y’all again ☺️
If you’re into dbh or criminal minds (Spencer Reid) I made public gc you should join!
The dbh one is called Connor army
The Spencer Reid one is called Spencer Reid fan club 🌈✨
First, have the story written or mostly written. It’s easier to already have that out of the way before you begin the work of promoting it. You can also promote a WIP like many writers do here on Tumblr, as that can be very motivating.
I made a masterpost of sites where you can publish writing. If you aren’t already posting on a site that supports original fic and fanfic and can’t just create a second username, you might browse these to see if they’re worth your time.
As for gaining readers on your new platform, it’s going to be different and a little harder. If you can find ways to attract your fanfic readers to your original fic that don’t make you feel uncomfortable, start there. Establish a new social media presence or use personal ones that aren’t attached to your fanfic sites, like Facebook or Instagram, to promote your writing.
When you do find a site you’d like to post your original work to, do just what you did on the fanfiction site; utilize tags, make friends, and interact with other writers and works. Don’t get desperate and try to promote your work in places that aren’t for promotion, but do try to make a niche for yourself. All this gets your name out there in a positive light, and can lead to curiosity about your story. And if you make a WIP page here on Tumblr and/or a WIP board on Pinterest you can blab about your story all you like!
UPDATED: When you say fic with original characters, I hope you mean a whole new original story. If you’re still using the world and setting of another story, it’s still fanfiction, even if the characters are original. Keep posting fanfic to your old fanfic site, and let readers there decide whether or not they like your OCs. If it’s more like an AU and you’ve replaced all the canon characters with your own and changed some canon-specific elements, then it is an original fic.

Reblog w/ anything else that should be added, lol
I’m in the mood to read an angsty, ending in fluff Luke x Reader story. And I really don’t want to write it because my normal anxiety has been jacked up so high with everything going on.
So let me know if you need a Beta for a LukexReader story I guess? Anything not to stew in my anxiety.
Instead of posting the completed chapters of my BoB fanfic, I’m sitting here watching Cheer on Netflix and yearning for validation, and IF THAT’S NOT ON BRAND FOR ME, I DON’T KNOW WHAT IS.
a PSA: leaving snarky/passive aggressive comments/asks telling me to update a specific story doesn’t make me want to work on it, it just makes you look like an asshole.
I know the trend in fanfiction is to write OCs that save the villain. Their love makes them see the error of their ways, and suddenly they’re the good guy. But, can we start making it a trend where the OC is corrupted by the villain? Can the OC find appeal in their plans and join them in wreaking havoc and facing the consequences with the villain in the end? Like Harley Quinn, yes she eventually left the Joker because he was an abusive asshole, but she pretty much remained a villain. Can we see that start trending, please?
Me when I talk about my fanfiction stories.
I’m so close to finishing this chapter, I can taste it! I seriously want to get it up by the first so I can participate in the Fanfiction quarantine boom, but I still have classes to contend with.
Spoilers: sadly, it will not feature the newly created “they were quarantined” trope. However, this trope would give me the perfect plot line to start writing for my newest fandom which I desperately want to start writing for, but have also decided I’m to old to write for.
Who knew being a writer during the apocalypse would be just as complicated as being a writer pre-apocalypse 🤷🏼♀️🤦🏼♀️.
