AnonymousHi! Are you still writing Brittana?
I am! I’m sorry I haven’t been around much, I’ve been having a very low-tech summer, and I’ve also been sick a lot from allergies. I’m still working primarily on the Set the World on Fire one-shot (I decided to do that before the AU.) I’m hoping to have it finished before the end of summer, since it actually takes place during the last week of summer. Cory’s death slowed me down quite a bit, I had to take a break - it was too painful to write comedy, especially involving Rachel. But I’m getting back into the swing of things. It’s a fun, fluffy chapter - my outline wants it to be very long, but I’m trying to keep the scenes dialogue-heavy and punchy.
So this definitely won’t have an epic feel to it, or much interior monologuing. Just the characters having fun and interacting with each other. Right now I’m working on a scene with Brittany and Santana on a matchmaking spy mission, complete with walkie-talkies and Santana in a pink Sydney Bristow-inspired wig. And as I think I mentioned before, there’s also a Pezberry plot and a Kurttany plot.
Anonymousdo you really burn that bacon candle??
OMG noo, it’s not mine! LMAO, it’s from their web site. I don’t even like the smell of real bacon cooking, let alone fake bacon wax. I just thought it was hilarious that such a thing existed.
I am addicted to Yankee Candles, though. I have like 25. Right now I’m burning Black Coconut, because it’s Friday night and I like to mix alcohol and open flames. That’s how we party down South.
AnonymousI'm rereading Set the World on Fire for the third time and I can't stop smiling. I love this fic, it's my absolute favorite :)
Aww, thank you! Right now I’m working on the summer one-shot, and it’s so much fun to be with these characters in this world again. Currently the four of them are at the Splish Splash water park to which Santana received free season passes, and I’m still just as entertained by their interactions in my head as I was at the beginning.
But at the same time I’m doing research (actually Eli’s doing research for me ;) for a Brittana fic that is VERY different in tone, darker, much more of an epic shipper fic that will be worlds away from the comedy and fluff and friendships of the other one. It’ll probably feel like it’s written by a different author. I think my writing muse may be just a bit bipolar.
AnonymousHey, do you ever see yourself writing current canon Brittana? As in, the one where Brittany's at MIT and Brittana aren't together, together?
Hmm… never say never, but I kind of doubt it. I wasn’t a big fan of much of anything about S4, and to write canon fic based on it, I feel like I’d have to go back and watch the eps again, and that’s something I really don’t want to do. And I feel like it would be confusing for me to try to write two separate Santana/Kurt/Rachel canons - the Set the World on Fire one, and the post-S4 Glee one. Also, I’m not a big fan of the MIT plot for Brittany, like, AT ALL. I’m really hoping that if Brittany comes back in the future, it’s because she realizes she actually doesn’t want to spend the next four years in a room with mathematicians and engineers, writing random numbers.
Anonymoushey Cora are you ok? you haven't been here for weeks and now so much Brittana reblogging haha (not that I'm complain tho') so much feels right now...
Whoops, meant to reply to this earlier. And… I know! It’s such a rush of adrenaline to finally have actual scenes, even though there weren’t enough. The infusion of new gifs (and the fact that Heather was looking adorable out of that GODAWFUL UNIFORM FROM HELL) is giving me life. I’m feeling very inspired lately, and I honestly wasn’t sure I’d want to write anything else.
But just going through an early outline with notes for the first installment of the Set the World on Fire one-shots, it looks like it may be longer than most (or all) of the prior chapters. So much for my idea of nice, brief sketches. It has a Brittana main plot, a Pezberry side plot, and a Kurttany side plot. (The second one will switch it up and have Brittana plus Brittberry and Kurtana side plots. And of course group scenes as well.)
To the anon who asked for my thoughts on the finale, I was going to attempt to say something, but I’ve decided that for me, thoughts and Glee don’t mix well. It’s better to stay firmly in the feels zone, because when I start straying toward thoughts, that’s when the dejection and the rage comes into play. Also I’m a bit drunk right now, so thoughts aren’t really on the agenda anyway.
