Finally finished the first draft of my Hannibal/SCP Foundation fic!

Just three more drafts to go.

skylanth:

Berlynn and I on the beautiful Astro Orbiter ride at Disneyland. I hopefully have converted another one to the Cult of the Mouse. Our lives revolve around making sacred pilgrimages to Disney Parks, the rest is just details.

THAT ME ON THE WHIRLY-GO-STEAMPUNK. In the winter I am an octopus in a Russian fur hat, but that’s what I look like in the summer! :)

In honor of my 2600 followers, here’s a flashback to my first video game system, the Atari 2600! :D



Hey guys, if you’re going to be at GeekGirlCon, you should come see me and my peeps at our panel!

The All-Girl Game Group Might Be Just What You NeedTime: Saturday, 10:00 AMLocation: LL2


If you’ve ever felt intimidated by the idea of tabletop gaming with guys who seem to have been at it forever, or have been uncomfortable being “the chick in the group,” an all-girl group might make you feel more confident, safe, and empowered, and help you get more of what you want out of gaming. Panelists will discuss their experience in all-girl groups and how it differs from mixed-gender gaming, and will help interested parties get their own groups together.
This panel also stars BelladonnaQ, Earthfirefly, Hats, and Mickey Schulz!
And if that’s not awesome enough, Skylanth will be selling her dragons there. You may recall the two awesome ones she made for me.
I will likely be in uniform (i.e., my big black Russian fur hat and black leather coat) during the day, and cosplaying with Skylanth as Newt and Hermann in the evenings, so please come up and say hello if you see me!

Well, Comic Cons are entertainment expos for people who are on TV and stuff. That’s out of my league. But I’ve been a panelist at Norwescon (twice), Sherlock Seattle (twice), Nine Worlds, TolCon, and GeekGirlCon (twice). I’ve participated in/moderated panels mostly on the subject of fan fiction and fan culture, but I’ve also run fic-writing workshops, given a (solo) presentation on Esperanto, hosted game shows, and written and performed (with others) an MST3K-style riffing of Asylum’s Sherlock Holmes.
If anyone would like a live demonstration of my abilities, they should come see me at GeekGirlCon in Seattle on October 11th, where I will be moderating “The All-Girl Game Group Might Be Just What You Need.”

the-womanonfire asked: Have you done any traveling recently?

Actually, a couple weeks ago I went to Disneyland and California Adventure with my friends. I had never been to Disneyland before, and it was much better than I expected. I had always thought that it was just a bunch of kiddie rides, and meeting Mickey Mouse and Snow White, and other stuff that didn’t really interest me. But it’s actually totally awesome! There are big thrill rides, and there was a Muppets thing, and cool fireworks and light shows, and also lots of Star Wars and Marvel stuff, because Disney owns them now. I also appreciated the original animatronic rides and attractions that are still there, because I’ve got a boner for all things Mid-century Modern.

There’s just one caveat that I have for people who are thinking of visiting: its not a very good place for kids. I don’t have kids, myself, so this is just based on what I saw, but it seems to me that kids get tired and hot really easily, they’re too short to go on all the best rides, they make you spend lots of money because they want soda and cotton candy and then they get all sticky, they don’t get the jokes on the Jungle Cruise, and they’re just generally a big buzz-kill. So, pro-tip: if you’re going to Disneyland, leave your kids at home.

Anonymous asked: In-universe fic recs for your OTP's?

Berlynn Wohl’s Mighty (Mostly) Johnlock Recs List

Berlynn Wohl’s Mighty Miscellanous Recs List

Berlynn Wohl’s Hannigram Recs List

These encompass all sorts of settings. If you’re looking for in-universe only, my advice would be to just skip headings like “Tentacles,” “Omegaverse,” and “Tentacle Omegaverse” …although by recommending this technique, I’ve also effectively eliminated about half of the fics I’ve written. :(

Benedict Cumberbatch can’t say “Penguins”

You guys, please don’t joke about this. He was obviously the victim of an evil wizard’s curse, and so now if he says the word “penguin” three times, a giant penguin will appear and devour him. He has to very subtly mispronounce it to avoid this fate, so can we please give him a break about it.

mapynguary asked: Hello :). Do you have any advice on story charts? Sometimes I try to write by inspiration only and just doesn't work cause I don't know where to put the scenes I want to write. Btw, I love your U2 fanfiction.

Please forgive my delayed reply; Berlynn had a busy weekend.

So, I don’t actually have a whole lot of experience charting fics, actually, as most of what I write is just porn. But when it is necessary, there are basically two ways I do it: if the fic has a plot but it’s pretty simple and really just a vehicle for porn (like Intrusion), I just make a list summarizing what happens in every scene, which ends up looking like this:

But if it’s a big complicated fic like A Study in [DATA EXPUNGED], I gotta open up Excel.

For the fic I’m working on now, I originally had this scroll covered in sticky notes on my floor, so I could jot down ideas and move them around easily. But now that I have a clearer idea of how the story will play out, I made a proper spreadsheet. I can’t tell you precisely what is on this spreadsheet, because spoilers. But here’s basically what you can do:

First of all, for a big, plotty fic with lots of intrigue and plot twists, you have to start with the ending. Where do you want your characters to be at the end of the fic? Once you know that, then you have to work backwards.

So make a spreadsheet. Left-hand column is the chapter numbers. Then you have a row at the top with the following titles:

* What action explicitly occurs in the chapter?* What is going on in this chapter that the reader doesn’t know about (yet)?
* What is going on in this chapter that the reader does knows about, but that [POV character] doesn’t know about?
* What does [Character A] do in this chapter that makes [Character B] fall further in love with him?
* What hint does the audience get that [PLOT TWIST EXPUNGED]?
* What happens in this chapter that is perfectly straightforward to the reader, but is later going to make it look like [PLOT TWIST EXPUNGED]?

Now as I said, you should know what happens at the end before you begin, so decide what action will explicitly occur in the last chapter, then you can work your way back up, dropping in plot points and character-development moments as needed.

But don’t think that you have to fill in the whole chart before you can start writing. It’s not a one-way street, where the chart helps you write the fic and that’s all. Writing the parts of the fic where you already know what needs to happen will make filling in the empty parts of the chart easier.

Hope this helps! Follow-up questions are welcome. And for those of you not familiar, I have a slash-writing tutorial, plus a slash-writing advice blog to which you can submit your questions!

Sometimes shit goes down unexpectedly and Hannibal isn’t wearing his murder suit. :(
