hi, may! i know you're busy but i was just wondering if you have anything in particular you're working on, or want to work on? i hope school is well. xx

Hey dude!! And no worries, it’s totally fine.

I’ve been working on this carnival-but-actually-just-the-county-fair AU thing, but it’s not really going anywhere to be honest. I somehow managed to write 10k of it without any real plot progression, or at least that’s how it feels. I have a ton of WIPs I’ve mostly abandoned, so there’s those, too.

I wish I could work on me and Luna’s photographer!Percy AU which I wrote a pretty fair portion of before I dropped it. I also wish I could write this Leverage AU I’ve had in the back of my mind for a while. Oh, and I’d really, really love to write some royals AUs, but I know little to nothing about royals. Unless The Princess Diaries counts as an education?

Bottom line, there’s a lot of things I wish I was writing and even more things I wish I could finish. Sometime soon, let’s hope, but since my family is deadset on moving before the year’s finished out, it’s safe to say I might be a little busier than I hoped.

I hope everyone’s had a nice weekend, but I hope this upcoming week is even better for you. I hope you ace all of your tests and finish all of your homework!!

can you rec some more books? i'm really interested to see what you read,

Sure !! Most of this is pulled off of my Goodreads, and you can add me as a pal on there if you want to get all of my book recs. If you don’t, here’s this list! This is mostly just stuff that left an impression. There’s tons more books that I’d like to list, but the sad truth is that I can’t remember a pretty good portion of what I’ve read. Oh, well.

Its funny because I feel like we're BFFs, but we've never met and I don't know anything about you. This is how a fandom brings people together, right? I love how you aren't just a fanfic author though. You honestly care about your readers. I was having an awful day the other day and saw your list of "be happy" things and nearly cried all over again because it was kind. Not many people let me rant about things to them, and its really nice that. You are the best, both as a writer and a person.

I’m really, really glad that I’ve influenced you positively in that way!! I hope you’re feeling better since then.

I try to make it really clear that I do care, and I think sometimes I say “have a great day” so much that people think it’s ingenuine, but I really mean it every time I see it. It means a lot to me that you guys read my stories and even more that you support me, and it feels like you’re my family of sorts. Of course I want to know how you are!! Of course it’s cool to tell me all about your bad/good day!! I want to be there for you guys like you are for me.

If you think we’re friends, we’re probably friends. You say you don’t know anything about me, but just by reading my fics you get a pretty good idea of who I am as a person. A lot of me is in them.

Thank you so much for taking the time to type up this message!! If I’m the best, you are too.

Just curious (I feel like this is a dumb question but who exactly is Axe in all your stories?

It’s not a dumb question!!

He originally appeared in Ways To Go, and it was really just a quick toss-in of a character because I needed someone else in the band. I didn’t really expect him to become an important character—in fact, when I first wrote him in, I was thinking he would be kind of a behind the scenes singer that didn’t really go out of his way to hang out with the band beyond practices and gigs.

But, then he became a little important. He’s Percy’s best friend in WTG, and in many of the fics I’ve written since then. Sometimes he’s just a guy busking on the streets, sometimes he’s someone Percy knows in passing, but he usually makes some sort of appearance. His prominence in the fic changes, but his character usually stays the same—some guy with streaks in his hair that’s a good singer and plays guitar.

You can learn some more about him in this tag. All you really need to know for the stories to make sense, if you haven’t read WTG, is that he loves Kelsi, music, and dying his hair. His parents went through a pretty messy divorce and he looks out for the people he cares about.

Hey! Do you know the talking at the start of Legendary by The Summer Set, what he words are? I can't find them ANYWHERE and you mentioned it in WTG, i think? I love everyone of your stories! Keep writing :)

Thank you for reading!!! And here you go, I found it, just had to type a bit of it in the search bar and it popped up for you!!

And, in regards to WTG, Percy and Axe wrote this bit together. Means lots to them as a band. Real credits are to The Summer Set of course!

"And then suddenly, it hit me. That moment you realize you’re not half empty. That moment, of all moments. Like there is music in the night and we can dance the sun out of the sky. These are the nights where everything feels possible. Maybe one day we will fall short of the stories we tell. But tonight we are more than just words on a page. We are here. We are different. And we are everlasting. We are half moon kids. We are legendary."

i freakin love Axe

I freaking love that you love him!! He’s very, very important to me as a character.

I haven’t gotten to develop him half as much as I would like to, and that’s really a shame because he’s a wonderfully, wonderfully deep character. If I ever do write a book, it’ll be about him for sure. And I won’t set this in stone but I’m pretty sure family would be a big theme.

Can you by any chance make another Percabeth AU with Axe being an awesome friend to percy or like an older brother to annabeth?

These Linking Roads Won’t Carry Us Home / 1.9k

Axe wonders how long it’ll take the pair of them to just look at each other for a second, without thinking about how much they want to be mad, and realize that they’re crazy about each other. Arguing is, essentially, pointless when they’re going to elope someday.

OR - Axe somehow always gets roped into helping Percy and Annabeth through their arguments.

A/N: I’m back from the dead, I guess, and here’s this really quick thing. Sorry if the whole argument is a little vague, but you guys can use your imagination—I wasn’t really sure where I was going with it, personally. In regards to your prompt, and hear me out here, I could do both. This was written in the span of a half hour at most, the title is from a Ron Pope song titled “Tell Me So”. Mistakes are mine!!
