My knack would be empathy. It’s already strong enough that I get headaches in large groups of people, especially if those people are particularly miserable (retail, shopping, sometimes movie theaters or family gatherings. UGH the family gatherings), while if I’m in a large crowd like a convention, where it’s all high energy and excitement, I actually get energized by it, though later on I crash and burn and spend the rest of the day listless. I think I’d have a strong enough empathy to know just how someone else is feeling, and possibly help reflect my own emotions back at them if they need a boost.

What would your knack be? Let us know!

So, welcome to my writing blog! For those of you that don’t know me, my main blog is @nightmares06. I created this writing blog to have a place to keep all my reblogs for writing advice, and as I write my main story, the one I want to publish in the future, this is also a place I may have excerpts for it. Normally I write fanfiction, and my fanfiction blog can be found at @brothersapart for anyone interested in seeing my current writing level.

Let me know if you have any questions about me or my story, and I hope you have a fun ride!

*Looks at messages*

I promise I’ll get to the messages we got this week! Normally I’d already have gotten to the ones that have to do with recent posts, but work is kicking my ass and I’ve mostly just collapsed, hard, when I get home. But the messages give me something to smile about at work, and they’re the best part of my day so never worry about sending them! I can’t wait for computer time this weekend.

Good news is I’m making real progress in BA this week. Writing it is coming easier again, and next week you’ll all get a special treat.

Oscar Meets Jacob (5/5)


Reading Time: ~5-10 minutes


“Oscar,” Jacob repeated. The shift in the tension in the air was palpable. Even though the little guy was curled up warily on the table, getting a name out of him felt like a step forward. A tiny step forward, but it was better than watching him cry and not knowing if he was hurt. Knowing he caused those tears had sent Jacob reeling.

“I’m Jacob,” he replied, allowing the faintest smile to cross his face. “Where, um, where did you come from, Oscar?”

Oscar shrugged, the tiniest little shoulders Jacob had ever seen, and wiped at his eyes with the heels of his hands. “I always lived here,” he replied. His voice was still rough from his crying, but it wavered less than before.

“And you came to get food,” Jacob mused. Holy shit. He couldn’t help but think of how desperate Oscar must have been to climb his backpack for food, if someone Jacob’s size inspired this much terror. Was the little guy living out of that bag with nothing else to his name?

Oscar Meets Jacob (4/5)


Reading Time: ~5-10 minutes


Oscar’s shuddering never stopped. His heart pounded in his little chest and he had his arms tucked close to his chest while he gripped the strap of his cloth bag in terror. Wide eyes stared up at the human and waited for one of those enormous hands to return.

Oscar couldn’t stop anything that happened to him. He was too small.

“B-but I …” he began weakly, only to falter again. He took a slow, rattling breath and felt the telltale sting of more tears in his eyes. The human had asked him not to run off. Would he stop Oscar from trying? “I-I just … I don’t …”
