The world sucks, and there’s no fic to read! Let’s change that!

Donate a Dollar, Get a 100-word drabble!

Because the world is crap, and there’s not a lot of fic to read in my current fandom, and we could always use things to cheer ourselves up and do some good, I thought I’d do a sort of drabble drive.

All you have to do is leave a comment to this post or message me on Discord or email me with a screenshot of a “Thank you for donating!”/”Your donation has been accepted!” message from a charity.
(example of what to say: “charity drabble!” *insert screenshot here* “could I have *insert possible prompt/ideas*? please and thank you!”)

ghostofgatsby’s beta-reading/editing

Hello, I’m ghostofgatsby, aka Ghost! For the past three years I’ve been writing a lot of fanfic, but I’ve read fanfic for ten years and been interested in writing since longer than that. Also in those past three years, I’ve been helpfully beta-reading for friends and peers in fandom. I always like helping, and watching people create stories ^^.

So! Do you have a thing (fanfic, original fic, or blog post) you would like to be beta-read?

(vaguely nsfw?)
So this vid is about non-monogamy and sexual relationships
…but this has good points about communication in ANY relationship, friends, family, romantic, sexual, or otherwise. And good communication and honesty is an important thing. We’re always changing and growing, as people, and it’s a skill I always try to practice and relearn. It comes with constantly reassessing and learning, and making an effort to listen and empathize.

I tell anyone and everyone who talks to me this, and I’ll reiterate it here- if there’s something I’ve done or am doing or have said that bothers you, even in a small way, Please Tell Me. And then we can talk about it! And then we can fix it and try to understand each other. It doesn’t work if I don’t know another person’s pov, if I dunno what’s going on. It’s a hard thing, to be vulnerable, but without it, it’s like looking through a fogged-up mirror. As Dr. Liz says in another vid, “We can’t change what we don’t know.” We can’t reflect on anything if it’s clouded and unclear.

electronic stuff- playlist

A bunch of electronic, for the most part, music that I’ve shoved in a playlist over the past couple years. Felt like sharing, because someone might like it too. Has lots of tracks currently, and may have additional tracks added on a whim. This post was last updated 5/11/18, so check the link for the current list.

Tracklist below the read-more.

Check out the Spotify playlist here.

Ghost Draws A Monster

So for spurious AU reasons I’m not getting into, and random interest, I decided to create a monster-creature-being. Thought I’d post up my thought process stuff, and the sketches, all in one place. Everything drawn in Gimp, except for the stuff with text, which was in MSPaint. cw: body horror? below the cut.

February Fic Recs, 2018

On February 10th, 11th, and 12th, you’re invited to rec your favourite fics, from the all time faves to the WIPs you’re currently enjoying.

I went through my bookmarks on ao3 from 2017 and picked out some fics.
Most of these aren’t Yogs/Hats, because I wanted to showcase fics outside of that fandom as well.  There are lots and lots that I’m certain I’ve forgotten. If you’ve written in the same fandom I do- thank you for sharing your work. I hope to see more in the coming year, but if not, you and your work are still appreciated all the same. So, thanks!

The fandoms I’m actively reading in are Yogs/Hats and Critical Role. But I read anything that interests me in pretty much any other fandom, whether I’ve seen content from it or not. Find something you think I’d like? Feel free to rec me it down below, or on Discord or something.

Fics are sorted alphabetically by title. Summaries are italicized, and my comments are in parentheses. Archive Warnings will be listed where applicable, otherwise, there are none. Mind the tags, and happy reading ^^!

(Edit: fixed links, sorry!)
