I’m a total idiot :( I used Moscow instead of St Petersburg but now it’s too late…
So here’s a bonus especially for St Petersburg!
Thanks nattie-k for letting me know!
Do you mean St Petersburg St Petersburg? ;))
oh my god
Yes, from now on, St Petersburg means Moscow, and St Petersburg St Petersburg is the actual St Petersburg.
//I really love the Cabin Pressure fandom because there are no shipping wars and I can ship Skipthur in peace with my fellow Skipthur shippers and have lovely conversations with Marlas shippers and Team Bobsled shippers and Knapp-Shappey-Shipwright shippers and Dougules shippers and Carl/Martin shippers and pretty much this whole fandom is so full of love and you guys are great.
On a recent excursion to the beach, The Travelling Finnemore was very pleased to spy this sign! He was particularly thrilled because this MUST be where the 100 otters wanted to be transported to…
WHO KNOWS HOW LONG ‘TIL ZURICH
Cabin Pressure ABCs: C is for Carolyn, Captain, Cremona, Crazed Psycho-Cat and Camembert!
Friendly reminder that tomorrow is Knapp-Shappey Saturday!
I *adore* The Things We Can’t Buy! And your interpretation of Douglas. It seems like a realistic portrayal of THAT character in THAT situation. And I only sort of asked you 11 in retaliation :) I found it so hard to answer, so genuinely curious!
Thank you! It’s really good to hear. I can feel the residual wear on my brain just from talking about that struggle.
I really should be working on that fic more. You know how I mentioned the early days of a fic being the most exciting and easiest to write? I really wish I could go back to those days with that one.

Welcome aboard! It’s a pleasure to have you here and I hope you enjoy your stay! I’m sorry to tell you that we’re currently experiencing technical difficulties with our in-flight entertainment system and so we won’t be able to show the movie that was mentioned when you booked. However, the rest of the crew has prepared a live presentation to fill this entertainment void.
So sit back, relax, and please enjoy our presentation of Quest for Camelot. Audience participation is encouraged!
If there’s ever anything I can assist you with, please feel free to ring your little bell and I’ll do my very best to help.
In all seriousness, hi. *waves*
Hello! It’s a neat list you found. ^_^
3. Where do you find your biggest inspiration?
This is difficult. I get inspired all over the place. I think my biggest inspirations might be other media and little things that happen in my life. I get strangely inspired by other media, some in obvious ways like wanting to write an AU based off a certain movie or setting and others in very round about ways like how a How I Met Your Mother episode became Dispatch. And when cute or interesting things happen in my life those are sometimes good enough to cast characters into.
6. Have you had any professional training in writing?
No, no professional training although lately I’ve been starting to think about it. (Been thinking about working on my writing a lot lately.) But I took a few creative writing classes in high school and college.
9. What has been the most difficult scene for you to write?
I had a really difficult time with the second part of a The Things We Can’t Buy (a WIP I’m writing on the prompt meme). I rewrote the whole thing, top to bottom, at least five times and that’s not counting all the dialogue rewrites I did before filling in the rest of the scene.
I was mentally exhausted when I was done and I was still worried that Douglas didn’t come off right.
11. What is the easiest thing about writing?
(Did you ask this because I asked you this? ^_^;;)
Plotting and outlining during that early phase when everything about the story is new and exciting. Why is a new idea so much more exciting than an existing one? Those first few days when I’m absolutely in love with an idea are some of the most enjoyable parts of writing. I scribble endless notes and short scenes and lines of dialogue I love and lots of little character traits. If all of writing could be like those first few days, I would get so much done.
