    Why are men such funny shapes? Women are so much easier to draw.

    when i write from casimir's point of view, it always sounds like a stream of consciousness tumblr shitpost.

    Queer Disaster Overthinking as always

    i can't tell if the stalling on this fic is just me dealing with a bad bout of brainwrong or i'm just stuck.

    guess i'm going back to the second draft and working on that.

    When I wanna write darkfic about a fandom whose villains are all too cute to convincingly do such a thing.

  14. started writing a stupid little thing for my own amusement
    found out a thing about the viewpoint character that entirely changed how i saw him
    now have to edit writing to fit this change in, which requires altering all the good jokes

    Ugh, that happens a lot with long-running fandoms in particular. Sympathies.

  16. i guess it teaches me to Always Read The Wiki Properly, especially if said character actually turns out to have two articles under two separate names/variations of his name, one more gameplay focused and one more lore focused.
    Basically though I was operating under the assumption that he'd been a Good Boy all his life and then I found out he spent some of his Unwise Youth worshipping the daedra of hedonism, debauchery and giving in to darker natures.

    I really ought to finish a massive old fic, but I've come to strongly resent the fandom it's for.

    tfw you say "I'm done" in a zine and are immediately subjected to a fifty page manifesto of "Your Style Is Wrong And You Need To Edit It My Way" while you watch artists submit their pieces and not be second guessed

    like no salt at the artists, and I will agree that not all zine runners Do This, but by god the ones who do are giving me Stress
