For those of you who celebrate, Happy Zombie Jesus Day -aka- Easter. :D and onto the loveliness…
Okay so I’ve been binge watching Bones, hence the Angel gif. I swear that does, in fact, make sense. :)
Anyhoo, I’m back from my break. And, I’m sorry to say, but the posts will be drastically scaled back. See, I’m still adjusting to MiniHulk’s condition (Prader-Willi, for anyone who wants to know) and we just (literally yesterday) had an epic crisis at school with him. So yeah, I’m still pretty massively stressed. However, I have decided to see my doc about possible medication for the anxiety/depression. Not telling you to garner sympathy or anything, but I like being transparent with y’all. I’ve been told that seeing other people go through real life crap helps people. So…hopefully that helps. :) *shrug*
So yeah, posts will be less frequent. I’m aiming for the hotness posts and one spotlight a week. I’ll probably just grab whatever is done in my google drive so it may be an author spotlight or a story. No way to tell in advance. I’ll also post anytime I have a story update because-guess what-I’m writing again!
Thanks to MissRissa81 and MistressJessica, I’ve been working on Behind the Camera, adding in lots more fluff and awesomeness to the existing chapters. I’m gonna TRY (and this is totally dependent on my flighty-as-fuck muse) to work on one story at a time til it’s done. No tell if that will actually happen, but here’s hoping. :) Needless to say that since I’ve made this decision my brain has decided to bombard me with at least one new idea a day. MissRissa is thrilled-me, well….
So yeah. Here’s some SkarsPorn and…KilliPorn (???) *I’m tired, don’t judge me!!* since I’ve been sadly remiss in posting it. I thought I had them all scheduled but yeah my phone hates me.
So I’ll be posting my exchange fic (The Night of Infuriating Families) as soon as MistressJessica cleans it up a bit. Otherwise, I’ll see you laters darlins!
Summary: Henry and Killian bond in the wake of an attack on Emma that puts her in the hospital. Post 4×11 with spoilers for 4a.
My oh-so-humble thoughts
I’m a huge sucker for any type of Captain Cobra bonding and this fic just made my little fangirl heart overflow with the feels!!!
Seriously. This would have been such an awesome way for the season to go. It’s only a one shot and a quick read, but it’s so worth it. This fic is just so…emotional! Like I cried when I read it. Huge gasping sob type of crying. But it’s so worth it.
It’s sweet and heartfelt and anybody that comes from a mixed family of any kind can totally relate to Henry’s perspective in this one. And Killian…oh my sweet baby Killian…she just writes him so well! Honestly.
So hop on over to AO3 and check it (and her other stuff) out. Cause it’s awesome!
Summary: Killian’s heart has always belonged to Emma. Watching Gold try to squeeze the life out of it almost destroyed hers. My version of some scenes missing from episode 4.12, the midseason finale.
My oh-so-humble thoughts
Wow. So this is like one of those “missing scenes” that always get written….but this one is sooooo good! I mean, sometimes I’ll find a good one, but usually I think they kinda-they’re not entirely realistic. Now that everyone has (hopefully) seen the start of 4B, I feel no hesitation whatsoever saying that I have firmly cemented this in my head as canon.
Seriously, she’s preserved the characters so perfectly while still giving us something fresh and new. It’s so absolutely perfect it’s not even funny. :)
It’s only a one shot, so it’s not like there’s a huge time commitment involved in this one, but it’s very worth it. You can really see the connection between our favorite duo and you can see how they got to the point in the second half’s preiemie. So yeah I’m rambing but I don’t wanna spoil it. :)
So go read (I’m about to go read her other stuff cause yeah…why not?!?) and leave her some love!
Title: When One Door Closes
Fandom: Once Upon a Time
Summary: Just as Milah slams the apartment door in Killian’s face, he meets the gorgeous, challenging, and rather feisty blonde living next door. [Captain Swan Modern AU]
My oh-so-humble thoughts
Okay first off, as of when I’m writing this the story is not complete. BUT there is only an epilogue so it’ll probably be done by the time this posts.
So now that that’s out of the way…wow. This story…I’m not even done with what is actually published but I knew I had to spotlight it when “PIVOT!!!” came into play. :)
If that doesn’t get you laughing uproariously, or you don’t get the reference…well, there’s just no help for you. This is a simple fic and it’s absolutely perfect in it’s simplicity. The characterizations are pretty spot on in my opinion and their reactions are sooooooooo perfect. Everything about this story give me the nice feels and you should definitely go read. :)
Summary: A spell goes awry causing Emma and Hook to switch bodies. Captain Swan AU
My oh-so-humble thoughts
Hey lovelies! So this little gem has been hidden in my favorites folder on ff.net for like…ever. And I’m *FINALLY* getting around to sharing it with you.
This simple one shot made me giggle and laugh so hard….and it made me “AWWWWWWWWWWWWW” so frickin hard at the end! Yeah. It’s humorous and heartwarming and everything you could possibly want from a fluffy Captain Swan one shot. It’s not fluffy in the pink unicorns and rainbows kinda way, but it’s Captain Swan fluffy. Ya know what I’m talking about.
She’s nailed Killian soooooo well-Emma too, but seriously her characterization of Killian was so spot on. It’s a short read, little less than 3,500 words so it shouldn’t take long. But it’ll leave you feeling all warm and fuzzy for awhile afterwards. And really is there any better feeling????
So yeah, go read and leave her some love. She’s got soooooo many other fics that I’m going to delve into and you should too!
Hey darlins! So I originally found this lovely chica on tumblr. And I followed…some kinda link to find her ff.net account. And I was NOT disappointed. The first story of hers I read, believe it or not, was Theme Song (check out the spotlight here). And I laughed SO hard. I’ve since read a bunch more of her stuff (keep an eye out for more spotlights) and I just…just can’t. She’s so awesome.
So yeah, let me stop rambling so you can hear-or read-what she has to say-er, type.
So, tell me a little about yourself.

Ever write in your PJs?

Haven’t done that one yet
Where do you find inspiration for your stories? Do you pull your real life experiences into your writing?
I usually like to write in-universe stuff. If I ever write an AU or something non-canon I still try to remain as IC as possible, so I’d say my inspiration comes mostly from the source material or any other tropes/scenarios I’d like to see play out.
Do you put real life into your stories?
Sometimes. If a character is going through something I have a frame of reference for I’ll maybe inject some of my own insight. More often than not though I try to just understand a given’s character mindset.
Do you write on a schedule?
If I’ve promised someone a prompt then yeah I schedule it out to I meet the deadline. Otherwise I make my own deadline so that I actually get it done.
Do you plan out your stories or just write whatever comes to you?
I write out notes and a general outline. If ideas come to me during the day or while I’m writing another section, I jot it down so I don’t forget.
Do you have any writing rituals or superstitions?
Is one genre easier for you to write than another? Is there anything that you just aren’t that great at writing?
I guess drama. I’d probably be bad at writing full-on smut.
What is the hardest part for you about writing fanfics?
Describing a scene. I’m a visual person so I usually have an idea of what a given scene would look like as I’m writing it but I struggle with translating that without compromising the pacing or being repetitive.
Is there a method for coming up with titles for your stories and/or chapters?
I try to keep titles short but still relating directly back to the story itself. Like a feeling or a phrase that’s repeated.
Which character do you identify with the most?
There are a lot of characters from lots of shows/movies I watch but I haven’t ever really written anything using characters I relate to, except maybe Regina from Once Upon A Time.
Which of your stories is your favorite to write and why? Which of your stories is your favorite concept wise?
I like writing one-shots and vignettes. I like keeping my writing sparse and efficient. On The Road was probably my favorite to write. Concept wise, my favorite might be Spot The Difference since I liked the idea of writing about a pairing through another character’s viewpoint.
Do you talk to your family about your writing?
I used to but now I mostly just keep it to myself
What is your favorite book/episode in your preferred series?
My favorite episodes of Once Upon A Time are Skin Deep and Good Form.
What is the best compliment you’ve ever received on your stories?
I love when people go in depth or appreciate the nuances in what I had written. Generally as long as the review is enthusiastic I’m happy.
How do you deal with the inevitable criticism?
I don’t get it so much now but I used to get it a lot when I first started. I didn’t really take those to heart but just tried to improve my writing based on my own standards.
What is your favorite/least favorite part about your preferred fandoms?
My favorite part of the OUAT fandom: the freak outs after every little development or spoiler
My least favorite part: how isolating it can sometimes feel and the ‘popular’ members being the voice
Do you have any advice for aspiring writers?
Don’t flat-out write what the characters’ are thinking or doing. Don’t summarize events just for the sake of setting the scene. Think about how the characters actually would say something and their speech patterns. Write stuff that you yourself would want to read.
Have any recommendations?
The more well-known fic writers on Tumblr are actually really good and their writing is usually concise and simple enough to get a feel on how to improve your own stuff.
And lastly, where can all your rabid readers stalk you?
Thanks so much for taking the time to answer some questions!
So there you have it. She’s awesome and adorable and funny and you seriously need to go check her out. And leave her reviews and love and comments and all that happy stuff. :) Thanks lovelies!
Summary: The barwench in Emma laments the fact that she never got her night with Captain Hook …
My oh-so-humble thoughts
Oh wow. *fans self* So this was a pleasant surprise to wake up to. *fans self again as I pant*
Yes, That’s right, this is pure smut, smut and more smut. And what glorious smut it is. She’s written a completely believable one shot that is entirely smut. It’s amazing. And it’s amazing how she actually nailed Emma’s character-and Killian’s as well.
So yeah-really really go read. It’s not too long but it’s the perfect little amuse bouche for any longer Captain Swan fics you may have in your ‘to read’ list-assuming you have one and don’t just scroll trough ff.net aimlessly…*whistles innocently*
Go read, leave her some love and maybe beg for more smutty Captain Swan! :) By the way, this is my Valentine’s present for y’all. You’re welcome and go read. Now. :)
