Author Interview: Buggy

Buggy

I’m going to get back into the hang of things with interviews! So everyone I’d like to intro Buggy! She has graciously agreed to answer our questions for you all! Welcome Buggy!

Thanks for having me 🙂

So we are going to start out with some basic information for all of you.

All of me? Last time I checked, I’m a single person. No twin. *looks around* Nope. Just me.

Can you please tell the people reading this your name?

Buggy. Last time someone called me Anita was… well, real life related. And I don’t like the real world.

Where do you like to post, and can you give us the site of your preferred medium?

I usually post on fanfiction.net (buggyfiction), my wordpress site and BetterInTexas.

What do you like to snack on when writing?

I usually eat crisps/chips. And I’m a smoker.

Like the question above but what do you listen to when you write, do you have a playlist for certain stories?

Not really. I listen to Lindsey Stirling a lot when writing because her music has (barely) no words and instrumental music keeps you going whilst writing. Less distraction from words.

Tell us something about yourself that you think your fans would love to know about:   Continue reading Author Interview: Buggy

Meeko

Meeko! Welcome Meeko and thanks for doing the interview! Though I sent this before you agreed I do believe, but either way!!!!

We are going to start out with some basic information for all of you.

Can you please tell the people reading this your name?

Uhm… Meeko?

Where do you like to post, and can you give us the site of your preferred medium?

I post on fanfiction.net, my website and BetterInTexas.

What do you like to snack on when writing?

Some kind of crackers. Townhouse Flatbreads, Italian Herbs.

Like the question above, but what do you listen to when you write, do you have a playlist for certain stories?

I listen to Buggy yap away on Skype, and then I might listen to some country music or pop, but generally music gives me a headache.

Tell us something about yourself that you think your fans would love to know about:  

I’m working on a collaboration with Buggy. The story we’ve just started to post is complete and we’ve begun on the sequel. It’s a Twilight/Covert Affairs story called Back At Your Door. And we definitely need to stop titling stories with a B. We have too much of those.

Thanks.  That gives us some basic information.  Now, about the writing –   I know you’re excited…

Why did you start writing? Continue reading Author Interview: Meeko!

Hobbit Story Review: A Touch of Magic by manic_intent

Name of Story: A Touch of Magic

Fandom: Hobbit

Author: manic_intent

Site:  http://archiveofourown.org/works/3067400/chapters/6656831

Rating (If Applicable): M/NC-17

Pairing: Fem!Bilbo/Thorin

Description (Authors): Bofur had to make two rounds of the tent before everything was finally, finally settled to Bella’s satisfaction, and she sulked and grumbled yet as he sank down into a chair, exhausted.

“Why are we doing this again?” Bella complained, not for the first time. She had discovered that Bofur had forgotten all of her favourite handkerchiefs two hours into the expedition setting out of Erebor, and had been in a foul mood ever since.

“The King called a muster-“

“No,” Bella interrupted, with a scowl, “Why are we involved?”

“Because,” Bofur began, then he hesitated, playing along with Bella’s mood, tugging at his beard, and conceding, “Y’know, I’ve quite forgotten.”

“Brilliant!”


 

Review: 

Now the other day I reviewed manic_intent’s (Not Quite) Prince Charming story and because I loved it so much, I decided to check out their other fics and stumbled across this masterpiece too.

Manic_Intent has a seriously good knack for good plot ideas, one’s I’ve never come across in ANY fandom that I read, so this time I was pulled into a world where Hobbits were just more than simple beings. They had a knack with their Anchors and had a good relationship with the Dwarrow’s, bringing out the best of their ability with their own magic.

It’s set after Erebor and during the Battle of Azanulbizar, except this time it sways a little in the Dwarrow’s favour. There were many emotional rides, from full out laughter to outraged sadness.

So go check it, give it a read and send some love!


 

Story Preview:

The dwarves claim that Mahal their Maker shaped them first, and Yavanna, Mahal’s wife, created the hobbits after, as spirit to their flesh of stone and clay. The hobbits say that Yavanna Kementári wove the hobbits out of the half-shadows between the Two Trees, to tend to Telperion and sing Laurelin to sleep, and the dwarves came only after: when Mahal had seen what his wife had wrought and had felt a craftsman’s jealous curiosity.

Whichever race speaks true matters little: the consequence remains the same – when Ilúvatar rebuked Mahal for creating the unfinished Seven Fathers of the Dwarves, it was Yavanna who bound the spirits of her own creations to her husband’s, to form between both races an unbreakable interlinking. For there is no true life without spirit, and no true living without flesh.

With time, the symbiosis between the races grew less desperate. The dwarves grew into sturdy folk, full of a measured breed of energy that was all their own, though they have no innate penchant for magic. The hobbits remained a half-spirit folk, part-shaped, fleeting between Middle Earth and a realm they’ll not speak of, even to the dwarves. But sometimes a hobbit will still bind himself or herself a dwarf’s soul, oft for reasons he or she will smile of and refuse to explain, and these dwarves, the Blessed, are bound always for greater deeds.
