I’ve published 120 fics to ao3. It feels important.

Truth. Truth is like, like a blanket that always leaves your feet cold. You push it, stretch it, it’ll never be enough. You kick at it, beat it, it’ll never cover any of us. From the moment we enter crying to the moment we leave dying, it will just cover your face as you wail and cry and scream.

The fact that in the second opening Mamoru gets to go from standing in the front line with Sailor Moon to being shoved as far back into the background as possible to make room for the lesbians will never not be hilarious and beautiful.

Hi! I just discovered your fics and I absolutely love them! I finished "i'll be honest im not quite well", the one with Clint and Erik meeting at a bar & Clint meeting Bobbi there, but I didn't quite understand the ending. Could you pls explain it?

hello! i’m super glad you like them. that fic is a favorite of mine, and I’m glad you enjoyed it. honestly when I wrote it, I thought I was going to write a sequel to it, but it just never happened. the idea at the end is that bobbi and clint work for an organization that does not lend itself to being in a very serious relationship with anyone — it requires you to leave at any one point, and can be incredibly heartbreaking. in the end, bobbi has to go, and she doesn’t know how long she’ll be gone.

the idea is that having her in his life gave clint some sense of peace. she makes a joke that having him in her life is going to make things crazy, but he insists it won’t — she brought him stability, why wouldn’t he try to keep giving her that in return?

that’s what it means <3
