Problems with writing slash for years and then suddenly switching to het and panicking about it:

  1. "Hang on, how can they be 'chest to chest' when there are breasts in the way? Oh, no, it's cool, they're squashy enough."

  2. "No no no, fingering is easier from the front, not the back, especially when clothes are still on."

  3. "WAIT. WHERE DID THE COME GO??"

Man, writing about dicks is so much easier, I think I'll go back to that, tbh.

The one time I wrote a het scene last year I hat to really think about the right vocabulary. I don't really think about it while reading, only while writing. Ergo I was lost at first. LOL
So hilarious.

LOL! "Where did the come go?" Too funny.

I've written a wee bit of het, but I just didn't get explicit. Writing about the c-word is a little squicky for me. I don't even like to read it all that much.

LOL yeah, I can see that; we're all socially conditioned to think of female body parts as 'mysterious' and 'embarrassing', as a way to keep us cowed yet still seen as alluring to the males. /feminist rant. I was proper freaked out by the dick deficit though, haha!

Oh it was a pinch hit for a Vampire Diaries exchange fest, for Damon/Elena. I haven;t watched the show in years, but I'm still a moderator for the comm so I pitched in. I'm sure it was absolutely terrible in terms of characterisation and story, haha!

Seriously no lie, I spent a moment squashing my own boobs just to make sure it would work, as though I'd never pressed them against a man's chest before :D

*laughs* They don't squish as much as I think they should sometimes! It's more like boob to chest, but boobs are part of chest so... semantics?? *still giggling*

Semantics, absolutely. In the end, I just went with it, cause the character's a skinny thing with hardly any boob anyway (compared to myself, who could probably knock someone out if I turn around too fast), and I just figured, ah fuck it, they're both chests, people can deal, LOL!

It was a Damon/Elena fic for a TVD exchange fest that I still tangentially mod, so it was just a last minute pinch hit.

Also I'm pretty sure I just wrote m/m frottage using female body parts, it's probably very weird, haha!
