I do — I actually find it difficult to write without music in the background. I usually listen to Pandora. I’ve got several different stations that I’ve set up and I’ll switch back and forth depending what I’m writing or what the particular mood of the chapter is. I’ve got a Dragon Age Station, and a Mass Effect station which is mostly 60’s and 70’s rock music (my Shepard grew up on a hippie commune on Mindoir and is into 20th century classic rock music), one just titled “Writing” which is a lot of instrumental folk/world/some new age ,… lately I’ve been using the instrumental movie soundtrack station I made (a lot of Hans Zimmer, I’m on a Zimmer kick). Pandora’s algorithm is pretty good and if I put in half a dozen songs it’ll usually get the station going in the right direction.
I used to put my own playlists together from songs I had on iTunes, but I ended up spending far too much time choosing and selecting and trying to decide what went with what and what order things should be in. Pandora is much easier. It does all the work for me

Everyone thinks of [fairy tales] in terms of poisoned apples and glass coffins, and forgets that they represent girls who walked into dark forests and remade them into their own reflections.

Aww…I so glad you like it. It’s turned out to be such a behemoth (about 600k words currently and still counting) that I always feel as if I should apologize to people when they start reading it. So here, a Tom Hiddleston apology just for you:
Hocus Pocus is basically the three Stooges if they were ladies and also the brides of Satan.

Oh he’s working on putting her at ease. And I think we know what he wants. Which coincidentally is what Anabel wants as well. The reality of it actually being about to happen has just rattled her a bit.
feylen said: Oooh take your tiiiime, I think it’s cute that Anabel is babbly xD I really can imagine that! And Seb eyerolling haha~He just has to kiss her a lot in order to stop the babbling :>
Sadly it is truly in character for her, she just needs to stop now. And Sebastian is showing endless patience with it, and no eye rolling at all.
It’s both kind of sad and impressive when one of your OCs is more patient than you are.

I am constantly astonished by how my characters have minds of their own. I’m writing the chapter where Sebastian and Anabel FINALLY have sex and what’s happening?
Anabel is nervous and tense and babbling like an idiot. Now granted this is pretty in character for her and Sebastian doesn’t seem to mind but if she doesn’t chill out soon radical steps might need to be taken.
Yup. I may have to start over. Which will delay the posting of said chapter.
And no one wants that.
You heard Professor Snape, Anabel. Get it together.
