i just found
brothel_orana in the creatures file
So, if you tell her she can go during act 2, she’s supposed to end up in the brothel?
Though now I kind of need Jethann and Orana brotp fic
NO YOU. omg how much more does it help, like how much MORE of a difference does it make to put a friendly face on the person you expect to read your stuff?
SO MUCH. Having a group of friends reading my work as I write it — knowing that they understand it won’t be perfect, knowing that they want to read it anyway — I’ve never had anything like that before. It’s such a huge boost to my confidence, and I haven’t felt so motivated in years.
And I find being let into others’ WIPs really inspiring, like, all that mutual trust, we’re in this together, we’ll make it through, i can’t carry the Ring but I can carry you, etc. etc
do you ever just stare into your coffee and fervently hope that in the DA3 codexes we’ll get to read excerpts from “Hard in Hightown 2: Siege Harder”?
I’ve been waiting for this post so long, you have no idea. I knew this beautiful day would come, if only I held out hope.
ONE OF US ONE OF US ONE OF US
Let’s see if we can find a few more— *shot*
Jay, I need your help again. Can we speak privately—perhaps, at my clinic?
Wait, but there are people who won’t read longfic of there’s no sex?
True, but at the same time, I don’t blame people who primarily want romance out of their longfic, as fanfic is really one of the only places you can go to get the good stuff. Not all longfic is good, of course; not even most. But when you do find a great longfic romance, it’s a mini-miracle. Good romantic longfic can pull off engrossing, messy, believable romance better than 95% of the stuff you’d find on the Barnes & Noble shelf today (and I say that as an avid romance reader), not to mention explore non-traditional relationships and gender dynamics that you just won’t see reflected in the mainstream.
Still, while I don’t blame anybody for thinking longfic is synonymous with romance, it does make me wonder how much of an audience there is for non-romantic fanfic in general—though when I sent up the bat signal I got plenty of people piping in to say that they loved genfic, so my mind’s definitely been set at ease.
Riddle me this, Batman: Does anybody even read longfic that doesn’t have sex in it? Or am I just wasting my time on this story?
