Bookish's Plan For World Peace · 3:45am September 26th

As someone who's been in fandom for 25+ years, and witnessed no less than 2,500 ship wars in real time:

If we just declared all fictional characters bi/pan/takeyourpick up front (as opposed to waiting, y'know, half a decade), we could legit save enough human energy to perpetually power a small continent.

Like Australia.

Think about it.

We could power Australia.

Harassment PSA · 4:26am August 13th

Read this right now.

There's a bullying scumbag going around the site harassing users mostly female or anyone who seems remotely female-presenting, because of course I guess it's just fucking everyone oh well with comments spam, threats, and overall general whining. You've likely already come across them.

Short Break · 2:23am August 10th

Fic updates, including Miss Valencia's character study, will be undergoing a short pause as I do the self-care thing for a few days. Be back soon.

EBlooming
Wallflower Blush strikes up an unexpected close friendship with a quirky indie movie director. In fact, _best_ friendship status could well be a possibility—if she can just keep this pesky redemption arc under control.

In the meantime, Blooming just had its emotional climax update, so catch up on that if you haven't, along with the rest of the MCU!

Similarities · 12:21am July 24th

So my last story was a fast-paced collection of moment-to-moment snapshots in the form of short chapters, which combined told a complete story over a passage of time.

In other words: a montage of vignettes.

If only I could come up with another pair of characters this approach might be a good fit for... 🤔
