Self began a new multi-chapter fan fic last week. (It’ll be her 9th; this is really getting out of hand but whatever).
In the last couple of chapters, readers have been more or less agreed:
- Why does Katniss keep asking Peeta so many questions it is weird but he answers them anyway?
(It’s called: device for advancement of the plot, dah-lings!)
- This chick has word vomit or something! (Uh-oh!)
- Katniss has the worst foot-in-mouth tendency ever!
Self finds all these comments somewhat endearing, what the hey!
Self had no idea, none, that her Katniss she was crossing boundaries. Shows you how much she has to learn about modern-day courtship rituals.
One time, self wrote something about a boyfriend visiting his girl in her college (They were having a long-distance relationship) and he ended up spending the night in her dorm room and readers were like: What? That’s so not OKAY! (Really? Why? People did that all the time when — never mind!)
Someone else told her today: Your writing is so different than most (If you only knew, dear Everlark fan fic reader!), it’s so lyrical. My problem is: Why are your chapters so short?
(It’s called subtlety and restraint, dah-ling! Because self is quite the flash fiction writer! Oops! In fan fic, it’s not flash-fiction, it’s called a ONE-SHOT!)
Self finally decided to partner with another Everlark fan fic writer. And together, we are writing an AU to the AU that is all Everlark.
She works hard, self’s collaborator. She has written one of the 10 most-read Everlark fan fics EVER. That is according to statistics compiled by this famous xxx fan fic website. The fact that she agreed to write outtakes for self is so humbling. Not to mention, hers are triple the length of self’s. And so much more funny!
Packed with tattooed girls and bands and grunge clubs. Which of course self has no first-hand knowledge of because she is really a nun writing from a cloister on an island in the middle of the Pacific Ocean. Pray Mother Superior doesn’t find out!
