Have you read The Night Circus?
I have not, but I looked it up and now I kind of want to
JAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAACK! Well, I think I'm in love with you. First of all, you love FOB just as much as I do and I found no one as exciting as me about their comeback. And then your fics. Your fics. Oh god, your fics. I just love them so much I want to cry. And after 18 years of my life, I decided to watch it and find out why you like it so much. Well, lets just say I spent 18 years in vain. WHAT IS THAT?
don’t even get me started on Fall Out Boy oh my god. wait wait wait are you telling me you went eighteen years without seeing Titanic?! at least you aren’t one of those people who didn’t know that the Titanic was actually a ship and not just a James Cameron movie that takes a lot of liberties (but I still love it)
I can honestly say that having James Franco looking at me while I read your wip's, makes it easier to... let go ;)
this is the greatest thing I’ve ever read
will the fact that the rapist having a high-pitched voice become something that ends up as a trigger in ateotw? I can't help but keep thinking that Kurt has that kind of voice too and something bad will happen....
The Titanic is on tv and I'm watching it and I thought of you. *u*
owwwwwwww sending you a box of tissues
sometimes when i read your fics and i'm getting too overwhelmed, i talk to James Franco. Like I would go "fuck James, what is happening?? What's going to happen? I'm freaking out here, stop winking at me. OH, you know what's going to happen huh? SHE TOLD YOU" and this is why i always read fic alone.
this was honestly the smile I needed oh my god I love you
I am usually an easy crier, but funnily enough, I was ok until friggin BURT cried into Kurt's hug. It was all over then. Amazing work.
when Burt Hummel cries it’s game over, man (and thank you)
so the next chapter of ateotw is going to rip my heart out?
I suppose it all depends.
For what it is worth, I have been a victim of sexual assault (which is why I am on anon), and I think you are handling the emotional aspect very well. As a quick side note, they would probably start Blaine on anti virals immediately to prevent HIV, which he would have to take for a good six months. And I love your story and anxiously await the next installment.
thank you for the heads-up, sweetie. I’ll be sure to include that. and thank you for this message, too.
There are lots of stories in this fandom that are full of gratuitous sexualized violence, but this is so not one of them. Just because they are characters on Glee, doesn't mean that you can't write them experiencing real-life (albeit terrible) problems. As long as you put a trigger warning (which you did) there is no reason you should not be allowed to write what you want - you are doing a beautiful job with this one.
and this is exactly the point I’m trying to get across. sometimes things slip through blacklists, and that, unfortunately, isn’t my fault and can’t be helped. that’s why I put a trigger warning above the cut, too, to ensure that if that happened they’d still have a chance to back away before clicking on the read more. I don’t write a lot of original fiction, so I use my medium of fanfiction instead, which can get tricky, but I try and do everything I can to make sure that it (hopefully) doesn’t come off as horrible or insensitive. and that’s what I’ve been trying to do this entire fic so far.
