The amazing and totally underrated shandyscribs posted a new chapter of “Polaroid Snapshots” today, and in the process totally shattered my heart. Everyone, if you’re a fan of more realistic Homestuck AUs, StriLondes, parenting, babies, or really awesome writing, go read Neverwere and Polaroid Snapshots right now.
Without getting into too many spoilers, here is Roxy saying goodbye to her little one, for what she realizes is possibly the last time she’ll ever see him. ;A; WHY THIS
(please view in high res it’s so tiny now!)
Reblogging for the wonderful fanart (thank you!!) and also because—oops—I realized I forgot to mention on tumblr that I’ve begun posting my fanfic!
My latest track, grimdark!Rose-inspired.
I didn’t have anything specific to work on today, so I made a crappy Land of Light and Rain in After Effects.
Open call for beta(s)
Okay, so, as of this May 20th I’ll have been working on my current Homestuck fanfic project for two years. I think it’s about time I finish and post it. The issue is that because I’ve been writing all the chapters out of chronological order, I basically have to wait until the whole fic is finished to start posting (and therefore can’t rely on pressure from fans to keep me motivated to write). What would help is a beta to keep me on task, and give me input on the way the story is going. It would be less a matter of correcting spelling and grammar (that’s what Siri is for; seriously, it does wonders to listen to your fic read aloud by a robot who can’t skip over errors with its eyes), and more of a matter of feeling out the tone, or acting as a sounding board/helping come up with ideas for chapters I’m stuck on, or smoothing out awkward sentence structure.
So far the fic is running about 90k words, and I’d say it’s about 85% done. I understand that’s a beast of an undertaking to beta! In light of that fact, if anyone is interested in beta-ing, it would be on a ‘do what you can’ basis. If you can stick around for the whole story, great! If not, maybe someone else can fill in for a while.
If anyone is interested, here’s more information about the fic and about how you can get in touch.
