Ask @sbj_ama:

why do you skip questions

Because I have 410 questions currently sitting in my inbox and I gravitate towards the ones that are generally easier to answer/react to
If I haven't answered something for you yet, try asking again! I promise I'm not ignoring it out of malice, just general overwhelmedish...ness

Seeing people pestering about updates of TEF makes me laugh so much and low key triggered. Like people chilL TEF isn't the only thing sbj has written ya know? There are like a billion other short and memorial gold that sbj has written. Give them some recognition as well and use your own imagination.

AW THANK YOU COOL PERSON

Do you have any fic recommendations on ppg/rrb?? Thank you!

Apologies, but my recommendations are woefully outdated and I personally have not read PpG!fic in... well, many many years. I daresay folks on Tumblr can point you in the right direction, though!
If you really want my outdated recs, try searching for anything by Hermeown, Somewei, and Philosophic Wax (good luck on that last one). I also co-ran a monthly PpG-themed Drabble Contest community for a while (https://ppghd-entry.livejournal.com/) and we got some really unique stories (not PpG/RrB-exclusive!), so you can check that out as well!

Since I've read your TEF and get the feeling, that the boys don't have a really close relation with each other. It's like their relation is a bit strained, yet I'm wondering if they would get really worried, if one of them got badly injured and that not by a puff, but someone else out of nowhere.

Worried is close to the word, but not quite the right fit. They wouldn't express worry or concern for each other the way most people would. It would manifest as other emotions (anger and resentment being popular alternate choices). I think the act of actually caring for each other in a constructive way isn't a language that they speak.

I just read your latest post on about NC-17 fanwork and tbh, I'm so proud to still have u as a fav author. I have no problem really with what creators choose to make as long as they're responsible, honest and are not flat out weird/disgusting, and that's how i think you've handled it! Love ya!

This makes me really, truly, super happy to hear. Thank you so much ❤

So I was watching PPG (original of course since the new ones are trash), and I stumbled upon this one episode where Buttercup discovers her special power of curling her tongue (PPG Season 4, Episode 24, "Nuthin' Special" ;-) ). I realized then that (1/4)

"obviously guessing after reading MTH, that this episode inspired you with some of the girl's abilities in your fic. If that is so, I was wondering if you kept all the abilities shown in the episode. I mean obviously, you kept the tongue and the language thing but did you decide to keep anything else? In the episode, the girls were able to vibrate so fast that they disappeared, set themselves on fire, create supersonic screams, shoot lightning out of their hands, among other things. Are those all powers the girls possess in your fic? Lastly, I'm sorry this has become such a long ask, thanks for taking the time to read it! I just wanted to say, thanks for blessing us with this fic and taking the time to answer this question :-)"
Technically yes! But I do tend to forget about them because they weren't plot points, and they wouldn't play a significant role in TEF/MTH.
No need to apologize! I'm happy you're interested in the story and my weird blathering :P

My darling sbj, I think most writers have at least something they would wish to change in their writings, is there perhaps at least one thing in MTH that you look back on today that you would so wish to change?

A few things, but right off the bat I would take out like 90% of the adverbs. They bug the crap out of me when I'm re-reading.

The best thing I like about MTH is the little things. Like when the Reds first started practicing and while Brick immediately shuts himself in his room from his brothers, Blossom rants directly to her sisters. It's so clear and indicative of their sibling relationships, you're such a good writer!

Okay hell with the nice crap, I just really want to read the next chapter I mean, I've waited for the next chapter for years without forgetting. Tell me you're going to update within a week from now. Please. (could not utilize any cuss words at all because of fear of being reported and disliked) lol

Okay well just for you here's the actual ending to TEF
ROCKS FALL
EVERYBODY DIES

I like that you're updating your dreamwidth again! I love hearing from you and on non-PPG related stuff too! How's your life going in general? Tell me about yo lyfe.

I got food poisoning this weekend
It made me angry that I couldn't eat whatever I wanted so when I was better I baked a cake mix that I found in our pantry
and then I realized the cake mix was expired orz
(i ate some of it anyway)
(it's pretty tasty)
(i switched out the veggie oil for butter (and more of it) and i also added an egg)
(livin' my best lyfe)
(... i realize eating expired cake mix after just getting food poisoning is not indicative of a well-learned lesson)
