I love how painstakingly detailed your fics are. Normally when there’s too much detail given to the setting, describing a specific room or place etc I always lose interest almost right away but I’m DESPERATE to picture exactly what you were thinking in your head when you were writing. I also love that you give so much room for the character’s monologues. Every detail is so just important in your work and it often moves me ever more than dialogue.
🥺🙈 I was just talking about this - but my writing is heavily influenced by others that I admire, particularly @irolltwenties and @jocarthage - the richness of that style, where the setting helps layer the story and the complexity of the emotions? I dig it hard core.
I know that tight 3rd person POV isn’t for everyone, but I sort of fell into that style early on because I really wanted to know what Alex was thinking/feeling behind the control he exerted on himself, and whether he realized how his words landed? So exploring the plot points of season 1 through his internal monologue really excited my brain and words just sort of poured out with LYW. I didn’t even call myself a writer until most of that story was done, so now I do, and I can say it’s a permanent part of my writing style.

Your specialty is writing emotions. I can feel everything the characters are when I read those scenes from you.
❤️🙈 Many thank yous. I never know if I’ve gotten carried away into the overly dramatic... also something I struggle with is when the world sucks, I need to feel things to remind myself I can? So often as I’m writing, I’m basically reminding myself I’m a human and shutting down to survive is only a short-term fix, not a long-term goal of existence.

I adore the way you write Alex's anxiety and his anger. It's so real and so good and sometimes I repeat what he says to himself to myself when I'm trying to figure out if my brain is making sense or just being cruel.
🥺🥺🥺 I had an ask a while back about which of my stories dealt the most with Alex’s mental health, and really, any story that has him as the POV narrator is going to deal heavily with anxiety and with self-directed anger, at least in my hands. (Whereas my Michael POV stories also deal with self-directed anger but with a focus on attachment disorder).
Anyway this really means a lot- I know with anxiety it’s hard to find the lie, all we can really do is pull apart the scale of what terrible thing our brain is telling us.
I will say my next story long-story has a very heavy focus on Alex and his mental health, mirroring a bit of my own personal history- where after I met my partner, I suffered the worst bout of depression in my life, because feeling the security of love meant I didn’t have to keep pushing other darker feelings down to just survive (but it also meant I had to deal with them! ugh).

Your fics have such emotional depth. No matter how interesting your plot is, you always bring it back to what it means emotionally for the characters.
🥺❤️ oh I kinda needed to hear this, because currently what I’m writing has no real plot, so I’m struggling with certain aspects of it, including “why would anyone want to read it??? nothing really happens” for over 22k currently, of just ...emotions and relationship stuff. 🙈

Now, this probationary constable…
We’ll start proceedings against him, we’ll pull him out, yeah?
Sir, we don’t have much evidence. Under questioning, he’s as cool as you like. I’d rather keep observing him.
But if he’s who we suspect he is, he could be a really nasty piece of work. I’m only thinking of your safety, Kate.
Thank you, Sir, but if he’s been groomed by an OCG and embedded on the force, he’s linked to the institutional corruption we’ve been investigating. We bring him in, we lose the lead.
Grand. We’ll just place him under surveillance.

Character depth and understanding
❤️❤️❤️ That’s my hope, that I understand what was on screen and try to put something close to it on the page. Season 2 made that a real challenge! 😂😂😂

Your specialty is epic stories. Just whole journeys. No single moments or short glances; you tell a whole start to finish narrative.
🥺 I just wrote 20 words more because of this message.

Setting new and arbitrary deadlines on myself in order to motivate the writing process again and yet, it never works. Why do I keep doing that?
In other news, I’m trying to finish “if I woke up next to you” (LYW sequel) by Sunday, so i can do Kyle Week with a clear conscience....what the hell happened to April? How are we already halfway through?
Also weirdly trying to finish a long fic by the 22nd, the last time I posted a longfic....

My favorite dynamic in both platonic and romantic ships are “we share the braincell” or “they are both very smart until you put them together and then they’re dumbasses.”
