"You have no idea how much An Excercise in Worthless means to me and how much it influenced me and still does, and sometimes it makes me sad because I feel like I can never thank you enough, and then I just end up throwing an anon ask at you. /sigh"
i really don’t know what to say except that i’m really really touched and humbled by messages like these and i truly honestly don’t know how to respond to them, thank you
"Do you think they'll really actually explore Dean's sexuality? Like not just in subtle subtext?"
geeze, i really don’t have an answer for this
i mean, of course i’d love for them to explore dean’s sexuality, and there definitely have been nods to a possibility (especially in season 8), but at the same time a) i don’t want to get my hopes up and b) queerbaiting
"Basia, I just wanted to say thank you because through your fic recs and wonderful fic you opened me up to Samifer, which I never considered before and it can be SO great. I always shied away from it because I can't read a lot of the common tropes used, but your specific type is great and a really interesting take on their relationship/dynamics. So thanks for letting me try something new. :)"
it makes me so happy every time i get a message like this, because i know that samifer is a minefield of dubcon and non-con and there’s a whole ‘nother side to the ship that unfortunately doesn’t get a lot of attention
"Huffs, sorry I had nothing else to call it apart from that or tattoo'd/pierced dean with those cute chunky scarves, and I thought that would be pointlessly long, I've never thought having tattoos ext instantly makes you punk, it was just the closest thing I could think to call it. I meant no offence and I am sorry."
no worries friend
i stick to worthless!dean in my head if that’s short enough for u
"I got the N7 jacket for Christmas two years ago and I practically live in the thing despite the heat of where I live. I get referred to as Shepard all the time and it's one of my favorite things in the world. Also they're super comfy jackets if you're considering getting one, well worth the expense and they last forever."
o-oh no i really can’t be spending money but i’m……… really tempted…………………..
"Hey- just finished reading your Destiel AU. Now I'm curiously going through your tags on mods. It's new to me, and I think it's fascinating and beautiful. Do you know where I could get information on cold branding? I'm flirting with the idea of scarification/branding (?) because I'm enamored with the symbolism of Dean's hand print scar. My priories would be to get it looking either similar or going for something more subtle/natural looking. I'm worried about pain /holding still and keltoids."
your best bet would definitely be to talk to a piercer or tattoo artist — they’ll be able to point you in the right direction. not many people do scarification, and even less do branding. it takes a lot of skill!!
as far as pain goes, any kind of body mod you get is going to hurt, and that’s part of the process and stuff. if you’re prone to keloids you should probably know by now.
basically you should probably definitely talk to a piercer and/or artist bc they can help you a lot more than i can!!!
"Hello, since reading your fics/posts, I've gotten interested in linguistics/dialect things and was wondering if you could point me in the direction of 'how to even begin learning about these sorts of things' if possible. Thanks."
wow that’s a really difficult question to answer, and i don’t really know where to start — if you’re at/near a university, you can always check to see if they offer any intro to ling classes, because that’s honestly the best way to learn something like this
and if not, see if there are universities that have online materials, since that’s also a great (and free) resource!
