Sometimes I stare at the computer screen when the words don’t want to come and I think, “Fuck, who am I kidding? This is terrible writing, and this story is shit, and no one cares, anyway.” And I close the window and go do something else.
But every now and then I get an amazing, heartfelt, beautiful comment from someone who loved something I wrote, and it reminds me that, at least for that one person, I did write something worthwhile. And so I open the window again and I write one sentence, and then another, and then I start to find my way again.
So on behalf of all fanfic writers everywhere, I want to say thank you, thank you so much, to all of the readers who take the time to leave a comment and tell us that something we wrote mattered to you, that it brightened your day or made you laugh or cry or get horny or whatever.
Please don’t think we’re ever bothered by your comment, or that we don’t want to hear it, or that what you have to say isn’t important enough. It means so, so much. And on some days, it’s what keeps us going.
Most of my fic is Jedcest and it’s online at http://www.jedcest.com/cestarchive/viewuser.php?uid=3
The fic I’ve written for other fandoms is here: http://archiveofourown.org/users/kimtristh
Beatles/Oasis fic it’s here: http://kimtristh.livejournal.com/3205.html
Libertines fic is in an old blog and can post if anyone is interested, and I have never posted any Oz or Colby/Dale tho I have written snippets now and then :)
OK, so I do this every year and I fail every year - but this year I have something I hadn’t before: lots of hours at a place where I have no internet and I won’t for about a week still, and where I literally do NOTHING for long lengths and the accumulated shame of years of failing at delivering fics AND the urge to write because Hannibal will be back but SO FAR FROM ME.
Rules: send me an Ask, DM on Twitter or a Fanmail via that button on my blog. Do NOT send as Anon, when I am told who is sending the request from the start I am more likely to write it because guilt kicks in quicker! Your fic will NOT be published with your name on it, just want to be able to communicate directly for details :)
If in the past I have said I would write something for you and never finished you CAN tell me about it and I’ll work on that! I just get overwhelmed by past failed writings and figure you don’t want it anymore etc. I HAVE ISSUES. WE KNOW THIS. But I’m pretty stable lately as far as creativity goes so that’s good :D
Ships I will write for:
Jedcest, Jiam, Liamed, Jiamward, Louiam, Lennon/McCartney, Pete/Carl, Gallaghercest, Beecher/Keller, Hannigram, Jesse/Walter, Jesse/Walter Jr., Colby Keller/Dale Cooper
Any kink, any AU. I can’t promise anything longer than 500 words but who knows what will happen.
So yeah! Thank you and hit me up if you want :) xxx
EDIT: I will also write Paddy, Keith, Bobby, etc - I just forgot they existed heh
hey there! apparently there was a payment issue i guess but it’s been sorted as it’s online again :)
i have no means of contacting Veritas as my previous attempts have failed but thanks for the good wishes, love :) xx
“They are rock ‘n’ roll. Those who complain that they can’t sing are missing the point. A non-believer friend remarked on their cover of Queen and David Bowie’s Under Pressure, with a cold, “I bet Freddie Mercury is turning in his grave.”
I’m not so sure. They may not have enough power between them to match even one of Freddie’s magnificent vocal chords, however they must represent everything positive that he once sang about. They are, in every sense, the champions. Hell, they are the Bohemian fucking Rhapsody.
Freddie Mercury would not be turning in his grave to see these fellas doing what they so obviously love to do. He’d be dancing.”

She didn’t reply to my messages, I have no other way of contacting her unfortunately but in theory we can all keep paying month after month and keep the site alive until the domain registration is due next August Which I am still figuring out if we will be able to pay ourselves xx
