agreatbestfriend sent: I can't recall if this has been answered, but do the inhibitors the boys are currently on also serve as birth control? Or do they have to be really careful since Sherlock's heat already started (even though it's suppressed now)? Or is a knot necessary for impregnation of an Omega?

Hi hun! The Pentrapenzone (John’s) does double up as a contraceptive, and a knot’s not necessary for impregnation (it just significantly ups the chances) The same as in our world a woman can get pregnant from sperm in pre-come or ejaculate around the labia and vaginal opening (odds are reduced, but there’s still a chance.)

A lot of the biological stuff is slowly being mentioned in-fic. I just don’t want to dump it on people all at once, because it’d get dull ^_^

Anonymous sent: Hi there! I love reading your fics because for me they're so vivid visually, and I was wondering if you had ever considered writing a screenplay or even a play for the stage? I feel like you'd be brilliant at it! Anyway, have a great day :)

Oh, thank you my lovely! I’m really pleased you like my descriptions. I’ve never actually considered writing for the visual arts, mostly because I think it’s a whole different kettle of fish, and I’m not sure I’d enjoy it!

That said, maybe it’s something to branch out into one day.

Thank you again!

I’ve used cock four times in one paragraph.

Ahahaha! Cock is the worst, isn’t it beautifulfic? Thesaurus.com doesn’t have a large list of synonyms. I always find myself dancing around that word in my sex scenes. It’s not like you can have an…

"Prick" always takes me aback.  I think because the first thing I think of is pin-prick, which means something very tiny, and then when I try to apply that to penises it’s just laughable.  Yeah, I use penis, erection, shaft, column (never member, that’s so old-fashioned romances, omg, when they also called them swords and women sheaths.  Although, hell, maybe it’s time to bring that last ones back, ha!), cock, dick (if I"m not trying to sound British), sex, arousal, length.  Yeah.  Phallus, sometimes, if I can keep it from being too pretentious.  I’d use hardon if I could figure out a way to spell it (hardon doesn’t read right, hard on doesn’t convey the right meaning, I always misinterpret it.  Hard-on?  Nope.)

I actually like prick more than cock, because cock is so overused (not in a bad way, I mean like in the way that “said” is overused, to the point that it becomes more punctuation than a word). But to each their own :P as long as the cocks are happy I’m happy!

I can confirm the cocks are happy… For now.

Wait, why not dick? That’s British! Very British. British as balls! (As are prick and pecker, both of which do sound suitably diminutive, now I think about it.)

Editing Fun

Ahahaha!  Cock is the worst, isn’t it beautifulfic?  Thesaurus.com doesn’t have a large list of synonyms.  I always find myself dancing around that word in my sex scenes.  It’s not like you can have an explicit scene and NOT TALK ABOUT THE PENIS!  We need to cultivate a thesaurus for erotica.  Penises erect, penises flaccid, orgasms, pressing hands and skin.  Uh, so hard to keep it fresh.

I allow myself one use of “prick” per chapter, and no uses of “member” because I don’t like it. You end up with things like arousal, length, evidence of his need, hardness etc, or anatomical specific: shaft, frenulum, foreskin etc. Considering men are so obsessed with their penises, you’d think they’d have a richer, less ridiculous relevant vocabulary for their pride-and-joys!

Editing Fun

there’s always that one fanfiction that deserves to be turned into a movie

The one I’m reading at the moment, Midnight Blue Serenity, should be made into a movie. An /awesome/ alternative-storyline movie with the BBC actors.  

I an currently reading that one as well! Just started chapter 5, it’s really good and very promising.
Midnight Blue Serenity

I love you all! I’m so glad you like it! Thank you =D

Gay Love = Love

It’s not gay love. It’s just love. <3

Anonymous sent: Hello there! Hope you're well. First off, so glad you're doing better and getting back into your rhythm with writing. Can't wait for the next update! :) I had a question. My RP partner and I are going into an RP with omegaverse, and I've really fallen in love with all of your biological explanations concerning the topic. I was just curious if you'd compiled it anywhere in a primer or anything. My partner's never done O!verse, so I thought it'd give her a good framework to ground her. Thanks!

Thank you, hun! I think I am getting there, yes! I don’t really have a particular primer for my take on the Omegavese. However, you can check out the Gilded Cage world building tag (http://beautifulfic.tumblr.com/tagged/GCWorld) for some Q&A type bits.

Hope they help a little bit!

I am not a big artist, but somehow, the pictures in my mind when I read your writing, especially when it comes to John going all doctor on Sherlock (and you just rock writing that!), are so vivid that I simply have to get them to paper…since EPHG was the first fic I read by you, I thought I’d send you some love for it, in thanks for all the wonderful reading hours!

I&#8217;m thrilled to bits that I inspired you to draw a scene, hun, and thank you so much &lt;3 (Also you&#8217;re very welcome for the reading hours. Thank YOU for being such a captive audience!)

Anonymous sent: Hello, are you finished with Midnight Blue Serenity or might we see a small little squeal of it sometime in the future? I really enjoyed it.

I’m so glad you liked it, hun. Thank you!

I don’t intend to do any sequels or additions to midnight Blue Serenity. I think the story’s said all it’s got to say, and doing more won’t really add to the reading (or writing!) experience.

Thank you again!

I have no idea what I’ve done to deserve the thanks, but you’re welcome! :D
