Imagine your OTP getting drunk at a bar and going home to have clumsy, drunken sex.

Fellow writers! I need your opinion (which I’m sure you have plenty of!). I am debating on putting my current draft of my novel (aprox 40k) up on fictionpress.com. My characters are becoming insistent that I finish this novel so I can write the rest of their story. However, I need some feedback about plot and character development and while I’ve had a few friends read what I’ve done so far, I’m not getting the type of feedback I need. My question is, is putting something up on fictionpress worth it? Will people actually read it and give good feedback or will I just be throwing my story to the ether? Or/And should I start posting it here as well?

So, I just finished another play through of Mass Effect and this time decided to romance Garrus. I’m so glad I did. I love Kaidan, but Garrus is just as awesome of a LI. And my latest Shepard has inspired a lot of ideas. This is just one of the short fics that are part of her and Garrus’s story. This one is post ME3.

Inspired by one of my favorite poets.

The woods are lovely, dark, and deep,
But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep.
And miles to go before I sleep.
-Robert Frost “Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening”



    Shepard was suddenly aware of a thick darkness that surrounded her.  She couldn’t remember what happened. Voices whispered her name. Some familiar, some unknown to her. A woman’s voice called out, “I love you my little one.” Was that her mother? Only a vague face with indistinct features came to mind. Another voice called out, “You saved me.” Her mind latched onto that small voice. A voice she had not heard in many ages. A voice from her past.
