1.) I’m more meme-y than Tendou Satori.
2.) Ray from Archer is my favorite character from the series and he has some killer legs.
3.) Dio Brando’s face photoshopped on Regina George is quality content.
4.) Some of my world building inspiration for “He Who Knows Pandora” was taken from the show, Avatar: The Last Airbender, because of how well it does with different cultures.
5.) Martin Mystery, American Dragon Jake Long, Danny Phantom, Avatar: The Last Airbender, Courage the Cowardly Dog, Samurai Jack, and Hey Arnold! were some of my favorite shows when I was younger.

1.) What was your last dream about?
I hardly ever remember my dreams, but a couple of days ago I caught the tail end of one. Anyways, somehow I managed to convince my friend to watch both Haikyuu!! seasons, which we did. That’s it. Nothing else.
2.) What type of music do you like?
My music taste is rather large, and I’m comfortable with mostly everything—except for country music, it’s just not my thing. Electric, house, and strangely enough, jazz, is what I play when I’m writing.
3.) What’s the longest you’ve ever gone without sleep?
4.) What’s your go-to karaoke song?
I haven’t done karaoke before, sadly, but I can put up one hell of a fight on Dance Dance Revolution!
5.) What random objects do you use to bookmark your books?
There’s a special bookmark I always use, a dragon themed one (can you tell how much of a fantasy nerd I am yet?). If I don’t have it on me I just remember the page number.
6.) What’s your favorite thing to do on lazy days when you have zero obligations?
I search the weird side of YouTube for the newest parodies and write if I’m suddenly inspired. Cliché, I know.
7.) What’s something really cute that one of your friends does and is totally endearing?
She’s willing to watch thrillers with me even though she’s scared easily! She’s amazing.
8.) What’s the last book you remember really, really loving?
Duma Key by Stephen King! Recently I ordered a bunch of books (1984 by George Orwell, Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep by Philip K. Dick, et cetera) that I’m looking forward to read because the premises sound enrapturing.
9.) When was the last time you remember feeling completely serene and at peace with everything?
That’s a difficult question. I’d have to say when I was younger, when I’d watch Dragon Ball with my dad.
10.) Is there anything you should be doing right now but aren’t?
Nope! I kicked my procrastination to the curb years ago.
11.) What are three movies you think everyone should watch at least once in their lives?
The Incredibles. That’s all I can think of since I’m not much of a movie person. Personally, I find series more enjoyable.
12.) Myers Briggs type, zodiac sign, and Hogwarts house?
A proud ENFJ here! Sadly, I can’t remember my zodiac sign right now. I’m split between Ravenclaw and Slytherin, leaning toward Ravenclaw but have major characteristics from both, so. . .Slytherclaw?
13.) Talk about one of your favorite cities.
It’s breezy and satisfyingly historical.

13.) What’d you last binge read? Was it fun?
1.) Describe yourself like how you would describe a character you’re introducing.
To be satisfied is something she grapples with daily. Her ravenous hunger isn’t something particularly unique or spectacular, nor is never satiated; it’s not a destructive force that’ll tear the world apart, either. Instead, it waits inside of her. There are times, she recalls, when it’s particularly impatient, when it’s shredding her flesh, scraping against her bones, and playing with her soul like it’s a chew toy.
A very expensive chew toy.
Her hunger isn’t limited. And, perhaps, that’s it’s most ferocious quality, the fact that it can freely travel between the realms of her mind. Having its house (a meticulously built structure that somehow reminds her more of a fortress than a house) set in the domain of one of her passions—reading—that’s where it’s the most dangerous. When her hunger’s aroused by something that looks interesting—something that it can devour, that’s when it’s the most dangerous. When she can hold her breath. When she can feel what’s happening in a story.
For a moment, as she revels in text, she’s satisfied. The bliss that comes with satisfaction makes her heart blush in waves. She’d compare it to a drug, but that’s cliché and she avoids them whenever possible.
As quickly as it came, satisfaction leaves. And once again, she resumes her exhausting search.
2.) Is there any specific ritual you go through while/before/after you write?
Not anything specific, really. I put on music, but that’s about it.
3.) What’s your absolute favorite kind of fic to write?
Oh! Definitely psychological horror and fantasy! I don’t consider myself too good with romance (which is ironic because it’s what I mostly write. It’s also why most of the romance in my works is light or implied).
4.) Are there any other fic writers you admire? If so, who and why?
GET READY FOR A LONG LIST BECAUSE THERE ARE SO MANY TALENTED PEOPLE HERE!!
dovelair. There’s no way I can start off this list unless it’s with her. Dove is a genius. Her works have this kind of delicate and gentle air to them, even if it’s angst that’ll tear you heart out (see her Akaashi fic). Wielding creative expressions, her works will never bore you; her narrative is beautiful—so beautiful that I consider it to be one of the best styles I’ve had the pleasure of indulging in.
xXSilveretteRoseXx. I’ve been friends with Silver for a long, long time, and her works are absolutely breathtaking. She hasn’t posted recently (her last post being from January 2016), but I can assure you that they’re still worthwhile. But you’d better be ready when she posts again, because she’s dramatically improved, even if she doesn’t think so!
bookerror. Pulling in next is a writer who has a piece that contends for fic of the year. She’s exceptionally gifted, spectacularly so, and I wish that I met her earlier than I did. If you’re hunting for someone that can provide you with a never-ending universe that’s full of culture and allusions, bookerror’s the author for you. Seriously. The dialogue she’s able to conjure is nothing short of magical. When you read one of her works, you can immediately tell that she’s put in an enormous amount of effort—sacrificed some sleep here and there—to make sure you’re fully immersed.
pvlimpsest. There’s a certain grace that hovers over each and every composition that pvlimpsest publishes. Yu is someone I admire greatly because of the feelings I experience when reading their work; with topics and twists you’d never expect, Yu could very well be the definition of originality. It’s not hard to settle on that decision. Fantastically talented, Yu can switch the atmosphere in a piece quicker than blinking, going from light and teasing to dark and serious.
infinitydust. A true master right here. Her dialogue’s a wonder, and it’s astonishing how smoothly it flows. Choosing from a list of noteworthy aspects regarding this author was challenging to say the least. But I had to select one from the many. Infinitydust does an amazing job with pacing—a facet that a plethora of writers struggle with. Fast, light, and detailed, it’s sure to keep your attention. You’ll be favoriting and commenting before you know it.
Im-P-ulse. Im-P-ulse is someone that I want to see grow. Each piece is better than the last, and with that ability to write soul-destroying angst? It’s going to kill you, but at least you’ll feel satisfied when you’re dying. Possessing the ability to just write, I’m sure that she’s going to progress even further, reaching new heights.
readyaimfireaway. I wish I met readyaimfireaway sooner than I did. Their fics have an incredible range that blasts away (Jessie and James is that you?), making me wonder how they can do it so flawlessly. I said it, flawlessly. Truly, readyaimfireaway is a treasure in this community that must be valued.
icyfalls. Icy’s works let you have a conversation with them. A strange expression? Maybe; however, it’s what’s needed to get across how wonderfully open Icy’s work is. She routinely puts out high caliber work that’s pleasing to read. I can’t thank her enough for that.
JEluvs2laugh. If there’s a text series that can make me laugh and blush at the same time, it’s this one. Spilling with puns and adorable nicknames (looking at you, Bakugou!), her text series is a prize that should be more appreciated. I’ve had some bad days here and there, and one of the first things I do to uplift my mood is read JEl’s work. You know what’s even more incredible? All of her works are gorgeously unique. That’s talent.
cinderpelt333. Tendou is underappreciated. I think we can all agree with that. When I think of Tendou, I think of Cinder’s work with how accurately hilarious it was. The way she portrays the weeb we all love is stellar, sticking closely to his personality; with the humor, she narrates in such a light way that it’s enjoyable to read again, and again, and again, and—you get the point.
LilMissFanfic. LilMissFanfic is someone I met recently. Her depiction of Kuroo (especially seen in “A Special Day”) is one of the fluffiest, most adorable that I’ve ever laid my eyes on. Craving tooth-rotting fluff? This is your stop! Her fluff can send your stomach in a frenzy of spins with no sign of stopping. As a person, she’s incredibly kind and supportive with her comments! Easy to talk to and hold a conversation with, she’s a gem.
5.) How many words can you write if you sit down and concentrate intensely for an hour?
600, maybe? Somewhere around there.
6.) First fic/pairing you wrote for? (If no pairing, describe the plot.)
no. we can’t bring back the cringe days. I buried them myself and refuse to relive them.
. . .It was a terribly written Gaara/Reader.
7.) Inspiration, time, or motivation. Choose two.
Inspiration and motivation! I always manage to find the time to write, yet the other two are hard to come by.
8.) Why do you choose to write?
I want to make you laugh. I want to make you cry. I want you to fear. I want you to feel anxious. I want to make you feel, to make you completely forget that you’re in the real world and not the universe I’ve created.
9.) Do you ever plan to write anything other than fics?
Of course! I’ve written several original ideas; however, I’ve never been able to finish them. Someday I want to release something that’s completely original!
10.) What inspires you the most?
Anything and everything. Often times I’ll be doing something unrelated and then I’ll be suddenly struck with an idea or excerpt of dialogue.
11.) Weirdest thing you’ve ever written or thought about writing?
I choose the right to remain silent. The Internet isn’t ready for the weebness.
12.) A fic you wish you had written better, and why?
He Who Knows Pandora. I know, I know. I talk about this fic like it’s my brain child, my magnum opus. The ending—the ending. To make a long story short, I think the ending’s lackluster and unsatisfactory. When I was writing the ending, I wanted to get the piece over with because it’s such a long fic. The longest I’ve ever written, actually. By that point, I was tired.
13.) Favorite fic from another author?
All right; I made the other section regarding my favorite authors huge, so this one’s going to be short and include the ones that immediately come to mind.
“artistic. tendou satori” by dovelair because the dick word count is over 9,000.
“A Court of Miracles [Kuroo Tetsurou x Reader 1/_]” by bookerror. When it first debuted I left an expansive comment on why this particular fic contends for one of my favorite; in short, I love it for the ambience, the dialogue, the flawed characters, the pacing, the uniqueness, the social commentary. All of it.
“Encore [Todoroki Shouto x Reader]” by Im-P-ulse because it proves how big of a lovable dork Shouto is. And I love him.
"Tsundere Texts (Bakugou Katsuki x Fem!Reader) by JEluvs2laugh. The charmeleon child cares!!
14.) Your favorite side parings to put in?
None. Shipping is difficult for me, which is why I only have one ship.
15.) Your guilty writing pleasure?
It’s not so much as a writing pleasure, but my guilty reading pleasure has to be the fics where Reader has prodigy-esque talent and amounts to “manager-chan!!”. You know what I’m talking about.
16.) Do you have structured ideas on how your story is supposed to go, or make it up as you write?
I’ll have a basic premise in mind (subjected to change, of course) and wing the rest of it.
17.) Would you describe yourself as a fast writer?
Definitely not with how much I’m lacking in inspiration right now!
18.) How old were you when you started writing?
I can’t remember the exact age, so I’ll say around twelve? Something like that. The writing was horrendous and I never want to revisit it ever again.
19.) Why did you start writing?
Truthfully, I think it’s because I wanted to create a worthwhile piece with a set of lovable characters.
20.) Four sentences from your work that you’re proud of?
I’m going to end up going over the sentence limit, watch me.
[“’I think that you’re like a corona.’”
“Like the beer? You know that I taste better than that.”
“’No—like the sun’s corona. It’s usually only seen during a solar eclipse. You’re bright, and I’m afraid that if I look away for too long, you won’t be there anymore.’”]
This snippet of dialogue is my favorite that I’ve ever written, from one of my personal favorite pieces, Corona. I think that this excerpt is both humorous and serious simultaneously, and displays how open this relationship is—how communication isn’t lacking.
[“A trembling sigh wobbles past his parted lips. In this veil of intimacy, he’s unsure of anything; himself, mostly. He thinks that even his breathing’s off, rocky compared to such an ethereal flow. At the apex of insecurity, he’s hushed by affectionate whispers. Resting at the crux of his issues is a feral insecurity that bears its serrated teeth with pride, yet, under your gaze, it bows its head.
‘Thank you.’ His voice is a mere husk of its familiar symphony.
Wearily, his arms encompass you, pulling you closer.
‘Thank you,” he murmurs, repeating it so that it drifts across your lithe skin.
Eyes lethargically shutting, Oikawa’s body relaxes, free from the confines of stress knots, free from his unfathomable thoughts. Your delicate fingers sliding between his tresses becomes nothing more than an appeasing melody.
‘Goodnight, Tooru. I’ll be here when you wake up.’”]
Hands down this is the most romantic, most intimate thing I’ve ever written. I think that it explains itself; this section is from the first part of He Who Knows Pandora.
[“Revenge, Furuta thinks, is best served raw, seasoned with frayed emotions.”]
Bet you weren’t expecting this! Furuta is a mysterious character, and more often than not, we’re unable to see what he’s truly thinking about. Down at his core, I speculate that he’s like this. This is from The Joker.
[“’Rolling—’ he starts, voice rapidly executing a crescendo.
Your attention immediately snaps to him, a clear idea of what he’s going to do manifests in your head.
‘Don’t you dare finish that, Nishinoya!’
He doesn’t heed your order, too lost with what’s about to happen.
Did someone order a crack fic?
Anyone mentioned in this can do the tag if they so desire.
(Tfw when a journal is longer than your fics.)
