So I just wanted to get my thoughts down on e-paper regarding Captive Prince. I have seen a lot of media about it, both good and bad, and I wanted to take the time to write my thoughts out in full.

My journey through Captive Prince and it’s two sequels was just that: a journey.

The full thoughts and ramblingsCollapse )

It’s a curious thing, how reading to the end of something may actually cause you to hate something in its entirety. Although in this instance, I would say it’s well deserved.

Here I will write my predictions for Beautiful Monsters. Mainly because I have just reread the series and I want to record my ideas and predictions for the unknown number of books that will be written for the series

18 March 18, after Captive, Sire, Broken, Stone Sentinel and Dark of the NightCollapse )

And I will cross things off/comment on each prediction as more books come out - I'm also planning on writing new predictions as I think of them. And as I read more. But this is a record of what I was thinking at the time.

I've crossed a couple more things off my bucket list though... That's exciting no matter which ones they are!

Sometimes I hate how my brain works.

I have ideas in my head about stories that all seem to merge together and tangle until they are a mess that I spend far too long trying to sort out, time that I would far rather spend planning and writing said stories.

Like this story that I have had in my head for years now. Years.

I've been developing it slowly, dragging in beloved characters from other (and now defunct) stories and changing things slowly to fit the image I have in my head. And now I have a ton of new ideas that don't seem to match the setting but I can't get out of my head. And I can't seem to sort them out into a coherent story.

I hate this sometimes so much.

Because I like my new ideas.

But as soon as I sort out my new ideas and fit them into the story I already have, I'll probably think of something else to put into this story.

My two characters, two of my favourites, have grown so much in comparison to how they started, gaining a host of new family and friends around them. But their story doesn't seem to want to actually get written.

The posts online regarding Kate Middleton and Prince William meeting Beyoncé and Jay-Z and referring to it saying 'look it's Kate Middleton and Prince William meeting the Queen'

Fuck off.

I like Beyoncé and she is amazing, but seriously fuck off

Title: Clockwork Heart
Author: sundaysalvation [tumblr]
Beta: finnickodair-you-are
Artist: freakingpotter [art link] and keep-frozen [art link]
Word count: ~53,300
Rating: PG-13
Warnings: None (although there is a single mention of Finn in the final chapter)
Characters and Pairings: Characters include: Kurt, Rachel, Blaine, Mercedes, Sam, Burt, Isabelle Wright (with appearances by Elliott, Marley, Santana, Dani and a host of characters as clockwork automatons).
Parings include: pre-Kurt/Blaine (mentions of Santana/Dani, Burt/Carole).

Summary: Kurt and Rachel are on their rocky start of a dream of owning their own theater in Lima. However, after a year of terribly acted plays and no money coming in from audiences, their dream is moments away from being taken from them. The hopeful souls that they are, Kurt and Rachel decide to put on a play by themselves as a last ditch effort to save their dreams and their theater. But as they can’t stage a play with just the two of them, they have to find human actors they can’t pay and use clockwork actors that are in dire need of repairs. Kurt is determined to replace every broken spring, every cracked jewel, and every exhausted wheel to get the heart and soul of his theater ticking and turning again. But even though he’s willing to compromise and waste no expense he can on this make-or-break performance, there is no way Kurt Hummel is getting up on that stage to perform.


Author's Note: I really want to thank the three people who were so instrumental in me writing this. First, my two amazing artists freakingpotter and keep-frozen, who made two of the most incredible pieces of art I’ve seen for ages and were cheerleaders when I needed them the most. I was speechless when I first saw both works of art (to be honest I'm still speechless, and in love) and I hope I’ve written a story that matches the amazing work you’ve done. Both of you showing me your artwork inspired me to get this story finished and I can’t thank you enough for that. And second to my beta finnickodair-you-are, for literally everything. Telling me that yes my first ideas really weren’t great, helping me sort through everything for the story I eventually wrote, helping me in the dying moments of the eleventh hour and for being there start to finish and beyond.

This story was somewhat inspired by Rude Mechanicals by Lesley Livingston (which can be found in the anthology Corsets and Clockwork) but it took on a life of its own about a day after its conception. The script I use in the story of Much Ado About Nothing is the 70% abridged version found here. The information used in this story about clockwork and timepieces comes from extensive internet research, so I apologise if any of it is wrong. Also, if anyone needs clarification about the steampunk terminology used in this story, feel free to message me!

So three things happened today, one of which is good and one of which is expected.

The expected one: we lost. Woop-de-woo. Now it is confirmed in my mind that we were relying on Charlie Austin, Danny Simpson and Matty Phillips to get us through the games. Ale Faurlin's loss was devastating but not disastrous. And now we are a mess of players who aren't a team who can't play as a team even if their careers depended on it.

The good one: I crossed a ground off my bucket list and off my list of the 92. And Brighton has a beautiful ground.

The third one: I sent off my three teddies to be fixed and one has come back looking nothing like when he was sent. I am fully aware that he's been saved and that his now-totally-white-featureless-that-used-to-be-striped-pink-and-white-body will keep him safe for so much longer than the threadbare original material would. But he's come back different and I really don't like it. I want my teddie back and he's come back different. And I'm really quite upset about this.
