I’ll Try Forever

Shoes were left in a jumbled pile at the door. At least their coats had managed to find their way to hooks. Brushing his cheek against hers, Tom couldn’t help but be given pause.

“You’re frozen, love. Go get changed into something warmer. I’ll make a proper cuppa for the both of us.”

Minutes ticked by, nylons and dress were discarded for the more comfortable trappings of socks and a long sleeved shirt with a suspiciously familiar V. The shoulders were too wide to sit on Cassandra especially well, but the fabric was thick enough that she found it comforting, even though she had to roll back the sleeves for her hands to emerge.

Emerging herself from their room and traipsing down the stairs to the main level Cassie was drawn to a halt. She wavered on the last step, hand lingering on the bannister for security.

The lights in the flat had been dimmed. Candlelight shone most brightly, but it lacked constancy as air pushed and pulled it this way and that. Tom’s outline was easily identified even in the low lighting, as her eyes instinctively sought him out. His smile…it was the same. It always would be, she thought in a flash of clarity.

His hand reached out in quiet invitation.

I hope you enjoyed the excerpt of the final chapter of Dream For Me Tonight. You can find the chapter in full (and the completed story!) on ff.net here or on ao3 here.

In the next few days I’ll be posting some pictures of relevant things from this chapter! ;D

Thank you so much to everyone for your support and interest along the way. Special nod to fuckyeahlilyevans for your love, support, letting me pick you for ideas, and letting me throw little bits and bobs your way to see how they might be received. It wouldn’t’ve ever happened without you.

Quick update to the curious, AO3 has the completed version of DFMT now.

I’m debating between using AO3 as sole vehicle for my future story (stories?) as they’re RPF focused. Does anyone have any preference one way or another for FF.net/AO3 (I’d love to hear your opinions)?

NaNoWriMo approaches!

Well this is something of coming out of the aether. For those of you who still follow this I feel it worthwhile to note: I’ve figured out the upcoming (and final!) chapter of Dream for Me Tonight. Yes, I’ve kept you all hanging on the final chapter for more than a year. I sincerely apologize! That should be going up sometime in the next three or four days. Additionally, I’m going to be publishing the story in full on A03, which I’ve never actually completed.

Beyond that, nanowrimo is upon us! I didn’t participate last year but lately I’ve had a story clawing at my brains. I’m working on blocking out some information for it, and I may change the title of this blog to reflect my writing as a whole instead of one specific story.

For the curious you can count on several things: A multi-chapter story, featuring an OFC different from the ones you’ve met in DFMT. Cass’s story is drawing to a close and I’m eager to explore a new character and perhaps, a new leading man.

I look forward to hearing from all of you in the future!

Hiddles sweet unrest: Fan Fiction Problems

einarsdatter:

hiddlestonhotness:

When you read and get drawn in to a really great fan fiction and then it isn’t updated for SO LONG that by the time the update comes along, you have to go back and re-read the ENTIRE story to remember what’s going on. LOL!

Oops! Guilty author here. Guilty of slow…

Guilty. Omg oh so guilty. shot I’m surprised readers haven’t lynched me yet…. I love you, readers? <3 REALLYIDO.

Chapter 42 references

It’s been quite some time since I’ve had to do one of these! Hopefully the chapter wasn’t convoluted, it was a little challenging to sit down and pick up the threads of the story when I’d been away from it so long. To that end, the theme of the events in 42 may seem somewhat simplistic - but don’t be fooled.
They’re incredibly meaningful.

  • Cass doesn’t want to wake him up because he’s been incredibly busy. It’s not that she wouldn’t let him come. This is also why it is not creepy/freaky/weird/intrusive that he does show up. It’s a fine line but hopefully I made that clear.
  • There were a few quotes from chapter 7 “The Perils of Happiness”. They’re relatively significant. Keep in mind, that chapter details the last time Cass and her mother spoke with each other face to face. “
    No tears, sweetheart. Not for this. Not for love.”  and “
    I just want you to be happy.” are both things Susan said.
  • There’ve been things that allude to Cass taking after Susan, although I’m not certain which chapter they’re in now. Because of this, Tom’s promise is almost more meaningful: Susan was driven by her own set of circumstances to suicide, and tragically no one was there who saw what was happening. Tom is making a promise, more to himself, that he wants to be that person for Cassandra, because he loves her - and he wants to be able to build a life with her.

Look up &#8220;Tom Hiddleston Casual&#8221; (I was looking for outfit inspiration) and I came across the way that he really seems to stand when he&#8217;s &#8220;at rest&#8221;. It was very peculiar to finally click onto that. But hey, better late than never! Posture referenced in DFMT chapter 42. Also, assume this is the appearance (outfit notwithstanding) that shows up there.

Another picture of the infamous jacket, but wrong undershirt in this one so if looking for a reference to DFMT Chapter 42's Tom outfit, look to the post before this one!

Tom as I generally see him in DFMT Chapter 42, &#8220;Promise Me This&#8221;. Not the Loki-hair, though. Refer to his standard red carpet look for that.

Just finalizing the update. Horray!
BUT NOW I HAVE SAD FEELS.


Look for the chapter to be up in the next 45 minutes or so. Just doing last minute revisions. ;D

Gasp!

So, guess what’s going on? Yes! Writing! It’s actually happening! I’ve got one more class today but I’m hoping to have this chapter up within the next day or so. ;D I thank everyone for putting up with my absence and I hope I haven’t disappointed you too thoroughly.

Thank you, all. I eagerly await your response to Chapter 42: “The Moment it Mattered”.

Miracles!

Hey! Hey! Hey, guess what!

…other than the fact that I’ve moved and begun an insane university program that’s eating my soul and I’m quite possibly going crazy…

I have a chapter partly written. I’m planning on trying to complete it tomorrow night though it depends on whether or not I have something at 7AM on friday. I am seriously hoping not (normally it’s something that isn’t scheduled to start until next week) so in that event: Nap, and then more writing!
Now that I’m super-cool and in theeastern US timezone you can maybe expect an update around 3AM my time (so I suppose that’s friday morning..). If not then, then definitely by friday evening. ;D

Thank you everyone for staying with me! I can’t wait to hear what you think of the upcoming chapters. <3

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year, everyone. I hope you had wonderful nights and that 2013 brings you beautiful things! In my life it heralds some fairly dramatic changes so you might not see much writing from my quarter.

Unfortunately I went on a rather unexpected vacation. I’ll return from it on Wednesday night but on Sunday I’m moving myself to a different state to continue my education. Phenomenal opportunities but it will be incredibly busy!

DFMT should, if I’ve managed to plan it right, end within a week.

The sequel may be published at a much slower rate than DFMT was. You likely won’t get an update a day, more like one a week.
However, the story which will seem somewhat incomplete at the cessation of Dream For Me Tonight was meant to continue, and it shall. No worries on that count!

Happy New Year, everyone. I hope you’re as excited for it as I am! Anticipate updates starting either early thursday morning or thursday evening at the normal time again.

Merry Christmas. No, really. May not update a chapter, but after this: who needs one?
Not at all related to DFMT Chapter 41. I also have no idea where this picture is from, or even if it&#8217;s photoshopped. But hey. Worth sharing.

Merry Christmas, everyone

I don’t think I’m going to have time to complete the chapter I’ve been working on for christmas day, although I may surprise everyone yet by hiding from family events and finishing it then. In the event I don’t get something posted: I apologize, and I also wish everyone a very safe, and happy, holiday.

I love you all! Thank you so much for sticking with me through all of this!
