Rave Reviews for lovers like you and me by @ariestess!

oh my GOD this is the softest thing. i love this whole story so far because the setting (as in, right before their wedding) is one i haven’t seen many times, and it’s great because there’s so many different feelings that come up in such a small window of time. you’ve done so well at capturing them all. snow and zelena teaming up LMAO that’s amazing and horrifying. Great story and just what many SQ fans wanted from the show.Oh my god, are you trying to kill us??? It’s so beautiful, and you can be sure I’m crying right along with Regina at the end.OMG! I’m bawling my eyes out right now, blubbering like a fool. THIS was EVERYTHING I needed and more! Every character was spot on, every emotion so deep and heartfelt, every spoken word and thought so fitting for the Emma and Regina that we’ve come to know and love.This was just the right blend of sweet, funny and fluffy. It was a great reminder of what the show could have been and what it should have been. I loved that they got their way and didn’t have to spend the night apart, especially after it took them so long to finally be together. Thank you so much for sharing this lovely story.This was so beautiful and romantic!!

Enjoyed this fic? Be sure to give back and feed the author! A happy, appreciated author is one who’s going to be more motivated to gift us all with more of their words.

Today, we spotlight lovers like you and me by @ariestess​! 

@ariestess will give you a sweet sneak peek behind the scenes of the 36 hours from the life of one Queen of the United Realms and a co-“Queen of the United Realms” to be. She would walk you through the the maze that is Snow’s meddling and you will witness what it is to be on the receiving end of  your future Mother-in-Law excitement. On top of that you have pesky family members and diaper duty to deal with. BUT! I promise you, dear readers, our heroes would overcome all obstacles if it’s the last thing some of them do.  

And thanks to @tinylesbrarian a record of the event was kept through this fabulous, fabulous  art!

Before I can come up with a good retort, I hear Snow’s voice coming closer. “All right, you two. You’d better be keeping it G-rated for my granddaughter’s benefit.”

Author Interview – A Magiluna Stormwriter!

sqsupernova:

We sat down with @ariestess​ to talk about lovers like you and me, their process, and their Supernova adventure!

What inspired your story?

I fell in love with lesbrarian’s artwork during the picking process. I think it might have been my first favorite piece that I saw? I don’t remember now, I just know it was high on my list. It offered such options for me, and it totally perked up my muses, which is how I knew I had to make it one of my choices. Once we got paired up, I started chatting with her in DMs and came up with this idea that ended up being a little more than I could easily handle, so I condensed a lot of it into what you see in the story published.

How do you form your stories? Do you outline beforehand or write by the seat of your pants? Do you write linearly or out of order?

I rarely outline for my fics, but I consider myself something of a “plantser”, in that I have a rough idea of the endgame of the fic, and just let the muses guide the words until we get there. This isn’t always the best course of action, as my muses can be quite flighty and make me feel like I’m herding cats, but sometimes their ramblings point me to another ending that’s even better than my original one.

What in your fic are you most proud of?

“I really love that whole scene with Mal and Zelena. It just makes me giggle every time I read it, especially the part about Zelena’s fear and excitement over the dragonback ride. I loved that idea of going back to explore a bit more of the sisters’ brief time together as children, and this seemed like a really good way to do it.

I also absolutely loved the whole bit about Snow covering Hope’s ears and spelling out the word ”“sex”“ and Regina’s internal thoughts of teasing her with details. Like that bit had me laughing so hard, I had tears in my eyes, because I could see it happening so very clearly in my head. I love that their relationship has grown to the point of having good-natured teasing like that.

Oh! And the ”“floating poo nuggets”“ bit. Because that’s totally Emma and I wanted the laugh. And the vows and… LOL I mean, let’s be real here, I love a lot of this fic.”

Is there anything you’d change now?

I know that tone well and take a step back to be safe. She glares at Zelena as the black smoke swirls up around her, dissipating to reveal Maleficent looking resplendent in her Dragon form. Crouching down, she waits for me to climb on her back in a move I haven’t done in decades. I feel like that young queen who returned her fire again and smile at Zelena.

She stretches as she sits up, my eyes drawn to the play of muscles along her back. Licking my lips, I let out a low groan that I can’t quite contain.
