Hawks x Reader - Ruffling Feathers
Lo-fi hip-hop drifted from the open kitchen door, along with the smell of roasting chicken. Barefoot footsteps sounded back and forth on the tile -plap, plap, plap- and a contented humming that faded in and out with the melody of the music. Casual and unconscious.
You edged closer to the door, feet silent on the thick hallway carpet, and put your eye to the crack in the door.
Hawks had his back to you, wearing low-slung sweatpants and little else, save a watch with a leather strap. He turned his wrist to look at the latter, checking the time. He bent to peer into the oven, enormous scarlet wings flaring slightly to adjust his balance. He moved unconsciously, unaware he was being watched.
A slow, wicked smile curved your lips. Target acquired.
You waited until he was pulling the tray from the oven and clattering it onto the stovetop before you risked opening the door. You slipped inside, edging along the wall. Hawks grabbed the tongs, turning over the breaded chicken drums

[Zoro] [Soulmate!AU] Burden | 1
Roronoa Zoro x Reader  [Soulmate!AU]
Soulmate!AU where you experience the pain that your soulmate feels
 
It wasn't easy being his soulmate. 
He was boorish; horridly uncouth and had a terrible sense of direction. It didn't matter that there was a single straight path in front of him because he'd still get lost and refuse to admit it. None of that bothered you though. If anything, it made him all the more endearing. An intimidating swordsman; first mate of the Straw Hat Pirates, being bested by a map and compass. But ever since he met you, it wasn't a problem he'd often face. Each time the Thousand Sunny anchored at an island and the crew made their way into town, he no longer got lost since you're there, leading him by hand to explore the town. You were the brains to his brawn and, most importantly, his navigator to local bars and alcohol. 
What did make it difficult to be his soulmate was, literally, how painful it could get.

Warning: Angst
Wise men say only fools rush in

-Elvis Presley

He lived in a life that is surrounded by deals, drugs, guns, blood, and money.
You knew that getting involved with someone like Bokuto would be bad for you and would have consequences.  Yet, you can’t find yourself to leave and let go. Even if this is the life he has, even though he is the most eccentric man you ever met, he can make you laugh and always been able to take your breath away.
Your relationship with him is unconventional. The lurking danger and the thought of forbidden love excite you too much.  
You love him. You love him. You love him. You truly deeply love him that it actually hurts.
You had met and have been with Koutarou for almost four months now and you know that these feelings for him came too fast and unexpected. You liked – like – him and are very much attracted to him but lov

Dino Speaks: Stress, Writing, and You.
Feeling Stressed?
    If you haven't noticed, I haven't been posting a ton of stories these past couple of months-- finishing school, having a full-time job, playing on a ton of sports teams, and going out with friends all contribute to that. However, I've recently come to terms with all that and have been able to tell myself that it is NOT my obligation to stay updated with this aspect of my life 24/7, and that it is perfectly okay to take a break.
    With stress increasing in everyone's lives, I wanted to cover a couple topics today that I've seen are prevalent within the writing community especially, and my thoughts on them. These are things I've thought about and tried for the past little while, so I figured I would share. This journal may end up going in a hundred different directions at once, but at the end of the day, I just want you to be able to consider that your utmost responsibility should be to your

Dino Speaks: The Infamous Reader Insert
This is a journal entry for my Follower Friday journal set.
 
  While they're definitely popular works of fiction, reader insert stories often have a negative image in many writing communities. If you're reading this, you probably know I'm a reader insert writer as well.
    Today, I'm not necessarily defending these types of stories as a form of literature, but instead, I'd just like to hear peoples' opinions on them-- why you like them, why you don't, or what you would change about them-- and share my own. I'd really love to hear some arguments as to why you may dislike them, but I ask you do so in a polite and constructive manner with your fellow commenters!
    I'm going to start by outlining a couple common arguments I've heard opposing reader inserts, some of which I agree with, and some not so much.

She wakes up to the smell of the forest again.
It'll happen every once in a while; she dreams of tall trees and lush pastures in the clearings, of birds chirping and streams rushing past. But what's most noticeable is the earthy scent of pine, penetrating deep into the landscape-- comforting, yet refreshing. He smells like pine, and he smells like warmth.
Something else has entered her dream last night, however, and it's something more tangible than usual.
A plane ticket, clearly printed, is seared into her mind. The vision is so strong-- so certain!-- that she can't help but follow her gut feeling on this one.

Your heart drops as you watch the last bus of the night drive away and the battery of your phone drains to nothing in your hand.
The cold nips at your nose as snow continues to pile down all around you. You're on the outskirts of town, and all the shops have closed up. Not a single car is in sight nearby, and a feeling of dread sets in the pit of your stomach. You curse yourself for not taking your friends up on their offer of splitting a cab just because they lived in the other direction and it would've cost more.
Anything would be better than blindly wandering around in the dark, survival instincts on the edge of kicking in.
As you trudge down the sidewalk, which slowly disappears under the fresh powder beneath your feet, the street lamps brighten in your wake as you approach them.

You sit in the middle of the black leather couch, tense figures on either side of you. You sip from the cup of coffee you've brought in with you; it's overly sweet and only lukewarm, the syrup of the flavour shot coating the inside of your cheeks.
"A pair of golden carp is used in several cultures to symbolize love, partnership, renewal, and abundance,"
The red-sweatered man in front of you pushes up his glasses, tapping away at the keyboard in front of him,
"Yet it's nearly unheard of to have three people within a soulmate partnership."
You never imagined you'd have to actually go to soulmate counselling, yet here you sit.

"Stupid school festival. Having to dress up instead of doing something actually damn productive with my time."
Bakugou grumbles, fiddling with the various pieces of cloth that have been thrown at him by the various other males in the dorm.
"Shut up, Bakugou," Kirishima laughs heartily, "we all know you act like a kid every time you watch the Taiko drummers."
Sero pipes in,
"Don't forget when he yelled at the man running the spicy food stall because the food wasn't spicy enough."
"If you don't shut your mouth, I'd be glad to shut it for you, Tape Roll."
About half of the boys are wearing monochromed yukata, whereas others have opted for bright, colourful designs (Kirishima insists that the flames on his are the most manly of the bunch).
Katsuki is dressed in a jet black yukata himself; it highlights his bright ruby eyes, narrowed in their signature glare.

She doesn't know what she's doing on Kuroo's doorstep again.
The street lamps already fill the suburban avenue with their dim glow against dark skies; each a spotlight shining on the flakes drifting lazily to the ground.
Down the road, she sees bulbs flickering; a bright array of hues reflecting off untouched white blankets. Seasonal decorations litter the landscape, and albeit their slight tackiness, they still elicit a warm, nostalgic feeling in her.
She clutches the gift bag tighter to her chest, the plastic crinkling against her scarf and the thin paper tissue brushing her chapped lips as her hands fidget inside red mittens.
Each breath she lets out comes as a pale, frigid cloud. It's much too chilly for her to be standing here for much longer, yet that's the least of her concerns right now.

Fingers cold as ice brushed against her warming cheeks. Her eyes were transfixed on his. His dark red pupils burned through her, his focus solely on the window of her soul. 
"Satori," she breathed out after a moment's silence, "W-we should get back inside. It's getting cold." 
His lips slowly curled into a grin, both sides of lips quirking at her and his parted lips flashed his pearly whites. "You always said you loved the cold, didn't you?" his grin faltered to a sly smirk, causing him to earn a glare from her. 
"Come on, Satori," she laced her cold fingers around his thin wrist, pulling him with much effort against the hard wind. She shivered and attempted to pull her cardigan closer with her freehand but gave up midway when it proved to be futile. He barely moved an inch and she tightened her hold on him. She tugged once,

6 Tips for Writing Reader Inserts
1) Make sure the words you're using are correct.
I know that this seems almost as obvious as the standard 'spelling and grammar' advice, but the amount of stories I've read where the author has put 'defiantly' instead of 'definitely', for example, are staggering and very off-putting. I know that sometimes it's difficult to spot when you've accidentally typed a word wrong, since spellcheck usually doesn't pick up on an incorrectly-used word unless it's spelled wrong, so it's important to proof-read. (I used to be incredibly guilty of this, and sometimes when I post things when I'm tired I still make errors.) I’m not saying that you can’t make mistakes, just try to catch them when possible.
2) Don't go into detail about Reader's appearance.
I have come across quite a few stories where it's basically an OC/Canon story, but the author thinks if they slap "Reader Insert" in the tags, nobody will notice. Thing is, if you give a Reader a skin colour, hair colour, eye colour, etc,
