Pick any passage of 500 words or less from any fanfic I’ve written, and stick that selection in my ask/fan mail. I will then give you the equivalent of a DVD commentary on that snippet: what I was thinking when I wrote it, why I wrote it in the first place, what’s going on in the character’s heads, why I chose certain words, what this moment means in the context of the rest of the fic, lots of awful puns, and anything else that you’d expect to find on a DVD commentary track.
Pinnochio, Godfather Death (also I'm marveling at the fact that there are fairy tales on here I HAVEN'T heard of, and laughing at the fact that "Bluebird" is used for "character flaw". "Name one character flaw." "I murder women and lock their bodies in a room!" D:)
Haha! I know right? It’s not so much a charming character flaw as, y’know, a capital crime. (Unless they were referring to the last wife, in which case I guess it would be curiosity?) Anyway,
What is my greatest wish? Well, if we skip over the obvious big ticket items like world peace and happiness, then probably… To be independently and endlessly wealthy, so I can A) afford to support those who can’t support themselves, and B) take a bunch of courses in architecture and sustainable land development and build a bunch of unusual but excitingly creative houses (boxes are so boring!) and landscapes, which I would then give away to whoever needed it so I could move on and get started on the next one. A bonus wish may be eternal life, so I can just keep doing it until everyone has a dang home. (Contrary to popular opinion, I don’t think you’d ever really run out of things to do if you lived forever. Humans are creative to say the least. I often wonder what artists and scientists would be able to achieve if they didn’t have to die half way through their work.)
What qualities do I think make a good parent? One thing I’ve always thought was vital, is that the parent take an interest in what their kids are interested in. For example, if your kid loves Pokemon, and you just dont, putting in that extra effort to pick out a favorite, even if it’s just because of the way it looks, to learn how to play the card game if they’re into that, can have a huge impact on a kid. When they’re young, you usually end up being their default role model. For you to validate their interests is a HUGE deal, and your bond will be so much stronger. (Also consistency with what is and is not allowed. My parents were pretty good about that, but on the rare occasions they weren’t, I remember it being super frustrating.) >:U
My thumb is a brown and shriveled thing, so I don’t have any plants in my room, lest they end up the same way. :[ If I did have plants though, they would probably be variously colored potted Tiger lillies, as those are my favorite flowers ever. :)
I’ve actually been sewing up a storm since my last pony post, trying to pin down a not-quite-so-chibi pattern I like, and I think I’ve finally got it!
This little lady is certainly up for adoption. She has no cutie mark, but I will be more than happy to give her a custom one before shipping. Her eye color can be easily changed as well. Like all my ponies so far, she is $25 plus shipping.
I'm trying to remember now how long it's supposed to have been after the events of The Hobbit that Bilbo adopts Frodo, because I'm really curious now how that would work in your AU, and if she'd just end up raising him in Bag End with his dwarf/hobbit cousin/brother and how that would go down, because I think that could have potentially really interesting effects on the stuff that happens later on. But maybe Billana's son would have moved out? I don't know, the slow-aging thing makes it hard.
Ended up putting this under a cut, ‘cause it’s a bit long. :x
man all i want is to cuddle with you and bake you cookies and make your favorite food and sit on the couch all cuddled up with you and watch your favorite movie with you and then go to bed with you and maybe listen to your favorite album with you and jump around with you and then when we get tired of doing that we could fall asleep on the floor with pillows everywhere and put my face on your chest and just make you feel loved every day of your life
