when you look inside the toilet before you flush
yesifonlyyouknew asked: Hi I love writing but I’m having a bit of trouble with it. I can come up with a thousand different plots, main ideas. You name it. The problem that I’m facing is starting them off. I can’t do it to save my life. It’s like I have the whole thing planed out except…
so i was looking through Tumblr after reading the last chapters and was all “boy, i wish i had someway of ..expressing all these thoughts I have on this fan fiction…”
then i remembered i have a blog.
So …. I feel….weird I guess?
I mean, r9k was such an amazingly written story. It was very realistic too. I mean, more so than say..You Are. But it had this..feel to it that it was like “this story could actually happen in real life”
Elsa was this shut in and one we could all actually relate to. This story actually seemed plausible is what I’m trying to say. I dunno it is kinda hard to explain; i mean we aren’t all attracted to our siblings…
Either way, so I just read the last three chapters and I have such conflicted feelings right now. On one hand, I feel (like a lot of other people) that the ending was too abrupt. However, on the other hand I also really like how it ended. It’s like another blog said “its as if the Kate just wanted to get it over with”
Of course there are a lot of unfinished plot points. Belle is back in her abusive relationship, Kristoff was just forgotten about, the Dad is …more open now? I guess?
the dad confused me to be honest
But that kind of brings it back to what I said earlier. This is probably the most realistic Elsanna fan fic out there. I feel as if r9k wasn’t supposed to end happily. I mean, in the real world, would a story like this really end all cheery with Elsa and Anna happily frick fracking away with butterflies everywhere? No. Of course not.
That is where I realize and understand what r9k really was. It was a tragedy. A story without a happy ending. The characters wouldn’t have gotten endings full of splendor and joy. In the real world, Belle would probably still be with that douchebag. In the real world, Anna and Elsa’s relationship would still be frowned upon and disgusting to many people. Whether we like it or not, this is the sort of messed up world we live in; and Kate did not shy away from that.
Although, we need to remember that r9k was really a story focused on Elsa. It wasn’t You Are or Snowflake in Spring, where the story was/is focused on Anna’s perspective; r9k was about Elsa…and really, looking at the finale, it kind of DID wrap up things for Elsa (and to an extent Anna). Elsa sort of did start coming to terms with her problems and love for Anna, she started maturing and we did see her transformation as a character. It began with Elsa and ended with Elsa.
Sure, we could have done with a much more detailed ending, especially considering how bare bones these last three were in comparison to the previous 41 chapters. But I guess it was a good ending. Besides, even if they were bare bones, the emotion in the writing was outstanding.
Would I like see what happens next to Anna and Elsa? Hell yeah. But for this to be the end, I’m not complaining. Kate did a masterful job with this and as the psuedo-successor to Frozen Fractals (why does no one ever talk about that one?) it was outstanding.
Really, I’m just … I don’t know how to process this right now to be honest. r9k is finished. Kind of hard to accept it. The finale did come out of no where. However, we can never get angry at Kate. She has gone through a difficult time and we have to understand. r9k is done and finished. We didn’t get a steamy Elsanna scene, but really, would there have been?
Think about it, the Dad is still probably gonna be 24/7 over these two and to include a scene like that would have been pure fan service and …ehh I wouldn’t have liked it.
Hey, if you want some of that just go read Frozen Fractals...
In the end, r9k is done. Over. The ending could have been much better but for the type of story this tale was, I can’t think of a more appropriate way to see it end.
All in all, thank you so much Kate. You are an amazing writer and I wish you the best. Thank you for this enjoyable ride and I’ll be sure to revisit r9k in the future.
but hey this is just my opinion, so yeah..
still no more cute Anna dialogue or Elsa’s hilariously sarcastic thoughts..
no more Eugene being a jerk..
no more heart breaking Elsa and Anna bits
Lapras will forever break me whenever I see it.
I even named mine r9k in Pokemon Y
OH WHO AM I KIDDING
MY HEART IS EMPTY NOW
now all that is left is Snowflake… ;-;
for me, i like the way for telling story of you are more than r9k. (say again, it just in term of technical) because YA is more dynamic. it have clearly turning point and perfectly rhythm to build audience emotion. it completely made for entertain the reader. that strong point of YA.
but r9k is different. writer give everything to readers except expectations. it like she said “oh you want to read my fiction? YOU NEVER HAVE HAPPINESS IN ALL OF THIS. still interesting? good, now PAIN!” and yes… you know what’s going on.
if i can allude to, i would say the end of You are make sense to us like we watched the movie “Drive”. but when we read ending of r9k, it feel like when we watch “No country for old man”. it’s feel empty, feel lost. and make we feel pain inside because we know it’s make sense. it’s true. we never have happy ending. though we hope that very much. it’s still not.
you understand what i want to say? no? oh… i’m sorry. ^^”
I find this much funnier than it should be.
This is the first shoot of the photo series. I’m still in the process of deciding on other fruit options and trying to figure out how to open that coconut.
i want to see Durian.
If you were here beside me
Instead of in New York
If the curve of you is curved on me
I’d tell you that I loved you
Before I ever knew you
Because I love the simple thought of you
If our hearts are never broken
then there’s no joy in the mending
There’s so much this hurt can teach us both
Though there’s distance and there’s silence
Your words have never left me
They’re the prayer that I say every day.
