shirtlesspeter asked: Hi! I just wanted to let you know how much I enjoy the Donutverse. I squeal every time I get a notif and drop everything so I can read it. One of my favorite things about your fic is how much you make me love the OCs and sideplots because it's easy to see how much love and detail you've put into them. I was wondering if you'd ever write a story about Jacob & Timothy? My heart aches for them and I'd love to read more about them. No pressure! I know you have a lot on your plate already. :)

Wow — that makes me so happy to hear.  At this point I kind of think of the Donutverse as this obscure epic crazy story that about ten people are still reading… but those ten people are really, really invested.  =)  So every time I hear there’s more interest, I’m completely thrilled and surprised!  

I suppose I’ve been using this ‘verse as an excuse to write lots of OCs with a built-in audience.  It feels a little unfair, but so far I haven’t had too many complaints, and many people have said how much they adore the OCs (I think Sarah is my favorite, but it’s so hard to choose one at this point). Jacob doesn’t even belong to me; I poached him from Flynn Anthony’s stories, which are original fiction.  But yeah, I love him a lot, and he and Timmy were a pleasant surprise in the midst of writing the Adam/Kurt fic. I have considered writing Timmy’s story about running away to New York as a teenager as original fiction.  Jacob’s future is to end up in the FBI training program, and I suspect Timmy will follow him there.  

So really that doesn’t answer your question.  I think the answer is I don’t know, but maybe?  And if you really wanted it, the answer would probably be yes, someday.  =)

Thanks again for making my day!

I really do love it so much! When I started reading this fic, I never considered reading BDSM before and now it’s one of my biggest kinks!

I really do love your Sarah. Since there’s no real canon for her, when I had to bring her into my RP verse, I based my character on your Sarah! Really feisty and everything. :D (I hope that’s okay. I didn’t completely copy her, but I used some of the same personality. :D) Oh I would love to read Timmy’s background! Most days I just want to cuddle him, but I think Jacob’s taking care of that for me. ;)

I’m happy as long as you keep writing all these beautiful boys lol. <3

You’re welcome!

I am completely happy to be the one who introduces everybody to their favorite kinks.  =)  I will not be the one to tell tales, but there are plenty of them.

You are completely welcome to steal Sarah and all my other minor characters. When I started writing the Donutverse, I had only read a tiny bit of Glee fanfiction.  I still haven’t read very much.  But I did some poking around, and the fanon seemed to support calling Puck’s sister Sarah, so I went with that.  I’m certain I based her most strongly on kidenagain’s Puck-sister character.  I’m very happy to have contributed in some small way to the fanon about her.  

Timmy is very cuddle-worthy.  (And delicious.)  He’s definitely somewhere on the autistic spectrum, along with me and many of my adult friends.  I really want to tell the story of how he got his engineering degree and befriended Lady Gaga while completely failing at all other aspects of being an adult, but I have to figure out how to do this without making him a total victim or a Mary Sue.  I think all the Puckermans just completely intrigue me.  (God, I can’t wait until you read more about Puck’s dad.)  

And yeah, Jacob is maybe the most reliable character in the Donutverse.  It was SO amazing to write that scene with Flynn in which Tess was dressing down Carl and Jacob just walked in and Carl felt completely inadequate next to him.  Which, yes, Jacob wins.  (I can say that because I think Carl is pretty much my OC and he’s so, so dear to my heart.)

Do tell, what do you think of Blaine?

glee1x1sgalore asked: Is No One To Keep Me Warm complete or not? It's marked as such on AO3 but not on FF, and I'm therefore confused. Are you planning on writing more of that verse?

Oh, that was a mistake. It’s definitely not complete.  We are writing lots more.  I’ll fix that.

Come Rain or Come Shine interlude: Eitan

Excerpted from the Kurtofsky WIP Come Rain or Come Shine by knittycat99 and nubianamy.  This interlude was written by knittycat99 to give us a glimpse into Dave’s life with his boyfriend.  

Knittycat99’s inspiration for Eitan:

Dave realized, in a single brief clear-headed moment after he heard the news, that he shouldn’t have been surprised.  Eitan had told him as much the first time they’d been together, the night the students had rallied again in Cairo.  It had taken the heightened tension and emotions of the day to turn three months of circumstantial meetings, cautious flirting, and lingering glances into something concrete.  

It had also taken a little wine, just enough to give Dave the courage he needed to hook a finger into one of Eitan’s belt loops as they left the hotel restaurant.  “Come back to my room?” he’d asked cautiously.

“With pleasure.”

Dave’s room was cool and dark, a respite from the chaos and heat outside.  They were both covered in the acrid hint of tear gas and dirt, and Dave could still feel the adrenaline under his skin as he chased his fingers with his lips up Eitan’s back, pausing once at the Star of David tattooed at the base of his spine, again at the red heart with Chava inscribed along one side on his shoulder, coming to rest finally on the winding path of Hebrew down the back of his left arm.

“Tell me,” Dave said, tracing the outline of the unfamiliar characters.  “What does it mean?  Who’s Chava?”

Eitan sighed and looked over his shoulder at Dave, his eyes heavy.  “Ah, but I’m a man with secrets, my David.  As are you, yes?”

Dave swallowed, and nodded against his will.  “Yeah.”

“Sometimes I think it’s only the crazy students and men with secrets who end up in places like this.”

“Maybe.”

“If I tell you about my Chava, will you tell me about the boy who makes you so sad?”

Dave shook his head.  “I can’t.  He’s … he’s my past.”

Eitan reached up and brushed his thumb over Dave’s jaw.  “As Chava is mine.  So we leave the past in the past and go forward, hm?”

Dave smiled shakily.  “Sounds good.”

Sorry to taunt you with just a few of the songs.  Here are all of the ones I have in my lyrics folder for this story.  You can hear a few of them on the FoYF 8Track mix, but I haven&#8217;t loaded them all on there yet.

Georgia O&#8217;Keeffe, Part of the Cliff
This is the painting I took a picture of, back on 5 April 2012, in Santa Fe. Here&#8217;s the email note I wrote to myself:

Georgia O’Keeffe, Part of the Cliff

This is the painting I took a picture of, back on 5 April 2012, in Santa Fe. Here’s the email note I wrote to myself:

"The little bit of blue makes the rest of the picture beautiful.  Adam, little bit of blue."

1) Donutverse notes from the Valentine’s Day interlude of Fingers of Your Fire; 2) screen shot of the Scrivener file for FoYF.

I have a terrible memory.  Which means, among other things, that I need to make copious notes in order to keep the Donutverse functioning.  It was a lot easier three years ago when a) the Donutverse was the only thing I was writing, and b) I was writing over two thousand words a day, every day.  Now I go several days at a time without writing anything at all. 

Scrivener has been incredibly useful for helping me organize my notes and my chapters all in one place, but a lot of my notes begin like the first photo above — a piece of scrap paper.  This morning I sat down and reread the last six chapters of FoYF (the Valentine’s Day interlude).  I was looking for character elements, quotes, scenes to recall later — anything that I would need to remember about the characters and their development that should be wrapped up by the end of the story.  As you can see, I found a lot of things!  If you’re reading the Donutverse, you’ll see every one of them addressed in the next several chapters, as I’m wrapping up FoYF.  

My next step is to take the scribbled notes and transfer them into my chapter and character note documents in Scrivener.  These notes will wait (and wait, and wait) until I deal with them in print.  I have some notes for each character that I wrote over three years ago, back when I was still envisioning what the Donutverse would look like.  

I have a similar file for Dying in America, and one for everything after that (the season 5 Kurt/Adam is part of that, and some other futurefic notes), and one for all the other unfinished Donutverse stories.  

Often I’ll get triggered by a song or other event, and I’ll need to scribble notes on something.  One time I sent emails to myself while I was sitting in a concert, from the front row.  (I felt a little guilty about that, but I explained it to the musician afterward).  Sometimes I take a picture and keep it on my phone until I can use it later — I did this in Santa Fe, in the Georgia O’Keeffe museum.  One time it happened in the middle of running a couple miles.  I actually waited until I got back to my cabin to write notes for that one, but it was a near thing.

Often my notes start out as emails or chats to my cowriters, usually in the form of OH MY FUCKING GOD LET ME TELL YOU ABOUT THIS THING.  I have several amusing chat logs copied into Scrivener.

I’m probably the least organized person I know, but this system is really working for me.
