Why wasn't I born with super notification powers. Then I wouldn't need the email.
Have a great day loves.
How do you feel about sex in fiction?
Personally, I'm not against it but I'm against sex being the only key plot point. I don't particularly want to write a romance novel, on one hand but on another I want a realistic adult world with the many trials and tribulations of adult life...and that does include sex. After puberty it seems to me that most people are working their asses off for one basic need, sex. I don't want a key plot point to be sex but I want it to be a key factor in a character's personality. A sexualized creature without that being all that this character's life is about.
So I ask you good people (because you all write much better porn than I could ever dream of) how do you find the balance and how do you find a way to make porn more than what it is?
I apologize if it seems like I am being vague and still wanting answers. By now you guys know I fail at coherent thought XD

I don't expect to win, ever. But I'd like to say thank you to whomever nominated me, it's cool that someone enjoyed this fic. Especially since I didn't expect anyone to read it :) As always you people are awesome and amaze me *squishes*
Broken Crown is my favorite. If you knew me really, really well you'd know why ;)
I also love Lovers' Eyes, Hopeless Wanderer, Babel, and you know like ALL THE FUCKING SONGS!
SO if you don't have it go get it RTFN and LOVE IT!
*will have all the Mumford and Sons quotes on her walls soon*
I am only two seasons in and already I've got an Mpreg fic building in my brain. I'm convinced I've got a serious mental disorder. I mean, I feel compelled to knock up all the boys. XDDDDD Oh well I've decided to quit questioning my weirdness. lol.
Anyways I'm only two seasons in so the fic might have to wait.
Currently LOLing at the Gilmore Girls reference in a current episode.
You guys should vote. I am so down for Dallas and Spring break (March 15-whenever) usually or Summer unless it's a weekend then I can totally make a three day trip :)
If you guys can go,dooooooo it! :) I want to meet people. I am too social for my own good and all that ;)
Also realized the past...uh six (guessing here, might be more, but is most likely less) fics I've written haven't been posted here. It doesn't really matter as they are off the wall things most people don't read or rarepairs but it'd be nice for me to actually remember what I wrote as I tend to forget.
I've got recs for you. So many recs! But that'll have to wait for another day.
I don't know what the fuck my neighbor is doing outside--sounds like he's hauling a body around and it's kinda freaking me out. He's always making noise close to midnight and it's fucking annoying. I wish he'd get himself some ambien or something. JFC I should be asleep but apparently my brain doesn't want to shut off.
Miss you guys, always.
Just remember: All art used must be credited to the artist and you must ask permission from the artist first, we don't want anyone feeling taken advantage of and it's polite to always ask. <3
You can comment here or PM the bottom Draco account for more information (fest themes, comm themes, that sort of thing) if you'd like :)
Hope you are all well!

So thank you!
Ran across this on my random skim through fandom and it made my whole month! <3's

Anyone want to plot bounce with Kiss/listen to her moan about the ridiculousness of this fic *bats lashes*
I know that sounds really melodramatic, or possibly as if I have no life--but it's true. There is this big fear in me that one day fandom will cease to be as brilliant and bright as it was when I first arrived (as a lurker) at fourteen. That's been ten years, loves, TEN YEARS of my life finding meaning in words people, like me, had written.
The more I write the more I lose sight of the bigger picture and so I've decided after these fests I am taking a break from writing and I am going to go full on cheerleader/reader/occasional gift writer. I want more people to get their voices out there I want to witness the birth of new fandom stars and prolific writers. And, more than that I want to witness the quiet brilliance of some almost unheard voices.
There is brilliance in you all and I am just waiting for you to show it to me. :)
Pink Elephant in the Fandom Living Room? This is what brought it about and Fray says it so much better than I ever could (because come on it's FRAY ;D)
So I wanna know, what can we do to keep fandom alive and strong? I don't want it to become some closed circle of cliques where lurkers or people just getting into HP feel as if they will never belong. Fuck, it took me a good two years to actually get more than three fandom friends and even those I was wary of bothering too much because I felt like an outsider.
And I know you can't like everyone. God knows I don't but I try and some people I mesh with more than others. BUT welcoming the newbies in isn't about meshing right away, right? It's about letting them know they are not alone and about stepping out of our cotton pants and slipping into lacy danger panties ;) Let's try something new. And the whole "OMG THIS SUCKS" attitude that comes from writers (and I am guilt of thinking this just like probably every one of you are) is something we need to dust off. Some people take a little longer to find their talent than others that doesn't mean they deserve comments any less, if anything they need them more (or PMs preferably as publicly humiliating someone is never a nice thing IMO) to help them hone their craft. I know I'd be complete shite without Curi and Annie and Rike.
Anyways, you guys are probably like LOOK KISS IS HERE, WASN'T SHE GOING ON HIATUS? Yeah, yeah--it's partial hiatus and this was just something I felt I had to say, though my thoughts are always so sporadic I am not sure what the main point was anymore other than PLEASE NO TO BE DISBANDING AND LEAVING ME TO PLAY IN THIS BOX ALONE I'd cry an ocean :(
