And another section is finally finished everyone!!
Again, I am so sorry at how slow my progression has been this past month really. Like I’ve said before, I have found myself lost in another fandom and all my time has been focused on that.
But let it be known! Finn Nelson will be finished!! Hopefully before I leave for vacation in September.

So I was thinking, what if they have talked already? What if Rae took him up on his offer to be her chauffeur and they’ve spent a lot of time together over the last week or so, just talking. In the car, at the hospital, at her house, at his house when she can’t stand the hospital or her house another minute longer. What if she’s finally told him about her time in hospital, and about Tix and how she let her down. About her mum, and her dad and about what was going on all the time Finn didn’t see her and why she had to disappear.  She tells him about Liam and why she thought he was a superhero at first until she realised that he was just another way for her to hurt herself. 
They talk about Finn’s mum, and his nan and how he feels a little lost most of the time and why he’s so unhappy. Not all the reasons why of course. It’s all important stuff and it’s needed to be said but the one thing they most definitely do not talk about is them. This re-connection feels really fragile and tentative right now and neither of them wants to fuck it up. It’s best to just get back to being friends. The romantic stuff is too big a deal to think about just yet. But Finn’s spent the whole of the two hour drive back from picking up his stuff from his uncle’s thinking about nothing but, so when he walks into the pub that night and she’s the first thing he sees, the only thing he ever sees really, he knows that it’s time.
He needs her in his life and if they can only be friends he’ll accept that but there have been glimpses, haven’t there? Signs that she still feels the same about him and that’s enough to get him hoping. He hasn’t pushed it before now because while he doesn’t fully understand it  - he honestly doesn’t think he’ll ever really understand how she can’t see how fucking brilliant she is - he has an idea now of what she’s been dealing with because she’s finally letting him see all the broken bits of her. Even though he knows she’s petrified that it will, it doesn’t change anything for him. He still loves her. She’s who he wants and he knows now that if he wants her, he has to say something, she needs to hear the words. He has to confront her with his feelings and about hers, so with his heart in his throat he takes a deep breath, looks her in the eye and says, “I just… wondered if we could talk… you know, about you and me…?”

a person of or among the best in the world.

It happens again because of course it does. Insecurity so deep that even razors can’t reach it don’t just vanish over night. There are days when he knows - knows - that her fears are all she sees and that the love in his eyes don’t mean a damn. 

But he’s ready this time when her old fears come knocking. He’s got words he’s saved up for her, an umbrella of words to shield her from all the shit falling on her head. Words he thinks she only hears when she’s squashed so flat she’s got no choice but listen to him as she climbs up outta the hole she’s stuck inside.

I love you because your hand fits in mine like it was made for it. I love you because no one else has wanted my words the way that you do. I love you because when we’re naked I feel like I’m where I belong. I love you because I do, because we fit together perfectly, because I can’t imagine a world where you’re not with me and when I do I feel like I might hurl, I love you I love you I love you because you are you and you are amazing. 

He thinks that some days she even believes him. On the days she doesn’t, he just keeps telling her.  It don’t matter if she’s got dark days, long as she let’s him shine some light to keep her warm.

Holy shit Maggie! I want you to know that there is water leaking out of my eyes and it’s your fault.

With regards to fanfic accuracy, certain details I'm not bothered about, but with language I always am. I've read MMFD fanfics, where the whole dialogue is in American-English, and that DOES bother me. It's set in England, we say trousers not pants (pants are underwear here), we don't go to high school we go to secondary (or senior) school, followed by sixth form college (or just "college") at 16-18. This isn't a comment about your fanfics, it's a comment about others I've read!

And it’s totally ok to be aggravated with things like that but it’s also important to keep in mind that everyone’s language differs. It’s also HELLA important to remember that a lot of people have learning disabilites and so conquering their own language might be a challenge.

If you don’t like the way someone writes something, best thing to do it to A) stop reading and B) remind yourself that this is something this person does in their spare time for fun and it’s 110% not ok to bash them because they don’t get everything correct.

Yes! Well said, as usual!

I try to be accurate in my language, but I’ve also been steeped in British culture from an early age. I’ve seen some people ask qualifying questions about stuff they don’t understand to make their fics more accurate, but no one HAS to do that. Sometimes people have a one shot in them that they just want to get out, and that’s absolutely fine. Often people are writing in their second (or third!) language, so it’s unfair to expect them to get everything spot on. (It’s unfair to expect ANYONE to get everything spot on.) 

It’s all about supporting what you love and not bashing what you don’t. If someone wants to write, to tell a story to the best of their abilities, no one has the right to tell them they shouldn’t. No one is forcing us to read anything.

I want to add that I’m from Northern England and I call it high school.

Unless is impossible to understand, I think is better to use English with some words from a different region than misuse/abuse slang because a person is not comfortable writing with a Lincolnshire ‘accent’.

The people who read the stories are also from different parts of the world and writers have to make the fics “vocabulary friendly”, otherwise the story would be a sure skip.

On the same vein, some girls have approached me and talk about things they don’t like in fanfics (1st person, 3rd person, AU’s, topics, etc), one of them being when the dialogues are written with the pronunciation in mind (“c’me ‘ere I wanna tell ya summat”), mainly because it’s distracting when complicates the understanding of the story. Big dilemma arises.

So, I can’t imagine the contradiction for writers, to please the accent, the region, the grammar, the story, the accuracy, the quality, the lenght, the continuity, the update span, lalalalalala pfffff (really, love to the fabulous ff writers).

I say, if the writing style doesn’t meet someone’s preferences, they can skip it or if it’s imperative to say something (everyone makes mistakes), then approach the person and offer help in the topic, but don’t be an ass!

Let me tell you a story…

I woke up and I was fine. I had breakfast and I was fine. I worked out and I was fine. I came home and I was fine. I decided to look at tumblr and I was fine. I saw this post and I was NOT fine (see me below).

Then, I realized, this must be stagecoachjessi every time she posts more (amazing and perfect) fodder:

Just saying…Jess, ADORE YOU!!!!! Let’s be friends forever!

Trying to gif Rae and Finn kissing with my mom next to me is an awkward situation cause I know she’s silently judging me.

Respect to you Kayla because you’re always coming up with new ideas and work very hard to make your gifs super nice…

I basically love the fact that Izzy is the first person who throws down an ultimatum here. I know the focus is mostly on Finn’s response (for reasons), but let’s give it up for Izzy. Girl is basically like, “Oh hell no - if my friend isn’t going, I’m not going.” In many ways, Izzy demonstrates more consistent loyalty to Rae than any other girl on the show. There are so many subtle moments in their friendship on the show that genuinely depict Izzy as a caring and sincere friend:

  • She literally jumps up and down with excitement when Rae claimed Archie fingered her; 
  • She’s the one who says “Let’s do a makeover”, which really comes across (to me) as an act of support from her character (in the next few lines/scenes Chloe turns it into a manipulative thing);
  • She also doesn’t offer loads of “free advice” to Rae, she tends to be the one who’s openly listening to her (and others);
  • If she’s curious about something, she directly asks (ie. she’s the one that asked Rae directly about her scars when she saw them again during the makeover) and then encouraged Rae not to be self-conscious;  
  • Rave ultimatum (gif set);
  • V-plate pact (THEN she pro-actively confesses to Rae she “broke” it);
  • Waxing appointment where she opens up to Rae about her own physical insecurities; 
  • Super-supportive of Rae singing in the talent show.

Those are just a few things. I’m not saying she’s perfect, but it’s interesting how her qualities are very unique from other females on the show. What I find interesting is the way the show is written, Rae’s character doesn’t allow or invite Izzy into her life very much - it’s more Chloe-centric in the girl-friends arena. But, how Izzy’s character is written/played, she is a more nurturing, supporting, and altruistic friend to Rae.
