I don’t know why I need to write fluffy as fuck domestic fic to try and cheer myself up, but I’m glad to at least be writing, I suppose.
But seriously, I get this character and I kind of want to punch parts of her backstory in it’s metaphoric face.
Also, tea. I now want tea. I, or rather my Muse, made me want to have tea. At two am.
Yo ho, yo ho, the writer’s life for me…
Rest stops on highways are liminal spaces where the veil is thin and nobody can tell me differently
The explanation is that liminal spaces are in between places that bridge Here with There, so in fairy tales we often have the Fairy Ring, the Forest Clearing, the Sudden Misty Foggy Forest, the Bridge, the River, graveyards, in some cases
We also have a ton of american urban mythology around famous roadways and sites off the sides of roads
Archetypes like these occur to mark the places in the world where the veil goes thin and humans can have extra-worldly experiences, out of the ordinary way of living
So why wouldn’t transient spaces like rest stops where everyone is just passing through from one place to the next, never stopping for too long, not be a liminal space where spirits frequent, too
Especially since nobody would know if they were real or not
My urban fantasy idea just got a whooole lost more interesting.
Molto grazie. <3
i think there should be AU’s and then there should be UA’s
because Universe Alterations would be a good name for when your characters are in the exact same universe but you’re altering just a couple of plot points or a few character traits
EVERYONE WE ALL NEED TO MAKE THIS A THING
GOD THIS WOULD MAKE SHIT SO MUCH EASIER
guys. GUYS. THAT SHOULD TOTALLY BE A THING GUYS
I call them canon divergence AU’s
