Ask me a question about one of my fics or series. It can be absolutely anything in any project and I will tell you the honest-to-goodness answer (even on the progress/plans for next chapters of current series).

Don’t hold back. Whatever you ask, I’ll answer as truthfully and as completely as possible. You can also ask about my writing as a whole, if you like.

Sure, ask away!

I’m happy to answer some more if anyone would like to ask questions!

Boooo. I’m sorry you have to work. I had to do some work-related stuff for the holiday, but I’m done now and get to go back to my regularly scheduled “panic that the floor guys are coming this week and we have to clear 2 rooms and we’re not done”.

aaahhh house stuff can be more stressful, really.

I am thinking of and grateful for all the poor suckers who have to work today, since without them, for example, the gas stations wouldn’t work and we would not be able to get home, or the hospitals would not be open. <3<3<3<3<3

It is true, some jobs are necessary, even today.

Boo, that sucks. Hope your day goes by quickly!

I think it should, yeah.

Aw, man. That sucks.

I’ll certainly take it over not having a job, but it’s not my favorite.

Thanks, everyone! So far it’s being a pretty decent day at work, at least.

The first parts of the plan for the night’s mission are simple: they’ll go over the fence, take out any mechs they encounter on the grounds, and Kasumi will hack the lock.

After that, it all depends on what they find. The schematics suggest a couple of locations for secure storage, so they’ll try those first, but they’ll have to keep an eye out for security systems as they go. If the artifact isn’t where they expect, they may have to search the entire building.

For Leo, it’s something of a relief to finally get down to it. The whole day was spent dealing with logistics; Leo had spent half the day talking through tactics with several of the cell leaders while Donnie and Kasumi built transmitters to keep the rest of their communications network running. It is good to be moving, to put their skills to use. It’s good to have a mission, something defined, with a clear-cut goal to accomplish. He can feel the knots ease out of his neck and shoulders as they make their way through the cooling night air.

The street outside the house still has the remnants of the husks and brute they killed the day before, but there’s nothing waiting to ambush them.

Leo motions the others to go on, and takes a moment to scan up and down the street, making sure nothing’s approaching while they’re at the vulnerable moment of scaling the fence.

“Give me a boost?” Kasumi asks.

Donnie’s taller, but he’s already boosted April over and then vaulted himself. Mikey simply jumped, nearly to the top, before dropping down on the other side. Raph is hauling himself up and has almost reached the top. Leo nods and bends, offering his joined hands. She sets her foot in them and he tosses her up. She’s light, and nimble, easily catching the bars of the fence, flipping herself over, and dropping to the other side, landing silently in a crouch. Raph’s over, now, too, so Leo takes a couple of steps back to give himself a running start, and springs for it. In a few moments they’re all inside the grounds.

“Well, that was the easy part,” he mutters.

Kasumi laughs quietly. “That means the fun part’s beginning.”

And morning!

Happy (U.S.) Labor Day! If you have the day off today, enjoy!

I, unfortunately, have to work (and also I slept like crap last night, so this week is off to a GREAT start). If you likewise have to work today, fellow USians, solidarity and sympathies from me.

eponymous-rose said: I've probably asked this already, but how did you come up with the idea for the premise of Variations on a Theme? If I have asked already, are there specific people you know IRL who inspired Val Shepard?

Variations on a Theme was actually prompted on the kmeme. I don’t remember the exact wording on the prompt any more, but it asked for Shepard reliving the games, and getting steadily better at driving the Mako as she did. For some reason, that was the hook that kind of started me thinking. I decided I needed to not get bogged down in the details of what was different on each run, so I wrote that part fairly economically, and then it got to the scene where Shepard and Garrus are reunited, and suddenly Shepard said “we have to stop it” and that’s when I knew I had a lot more story to write.

For Val… Val was the second Shepard I ever played, and I planned for her to romance Garrus from the start. I also planned for her to be a vanguard. So I suppose that was a lot of her genesis: what kind of person thinks it’s a good idea to use herself as a projectile weapon? I imagined someone who was physically active and aggressive, but also gregarious and diplomatic. The way I imagine her physicality is based on a number of female athletes, specifically basketball players; Diana Taurasi, in particular, a player I’ve followed for a long time, who has a noticeable kind of physical presence and tremendous charisma. So I suppose she was a part of Val’s inspiration, though I don’t know her IRL. Val also reminds me a little bit of my dad in some ways, and she definitely has pieces of me in her, though she’s not very much like me.
