"And then everything is like two hours outside of Toronto!" LOLOLOL this awesome because we like to say around here that Toronto sucks because it takes two hours to get *out* of it. You haven’t even hit the rest of Ontario if you aren’t 2hrs+ away!
Ahahaha. I mean, Toronto (well GTA) is enormous, so that makes sense. Everything is just all nestled along the border. Like, I thought I understood and appreciated this image, but I truly didn’t know until now. And I say this as someone from a mostly empty state that’s still larger than many countries, but like. Kenora to Ottawa is a full 24 hour drive holy shit.

YOU DON’T EVEN KNOW HOW LONG I SPENT YESTERDAY PLOTTING OUT THE COURSE OF A FICTIONAL ROAD TRIP. IT WAS TOO LONG, MY FRIEND, TOO LONG.
Why is your province so enormous?? I thought I knew, but I had only just scratched the surface of how goddam big Ontario is, holy shit. And then everything is like two hours outside of Toronto! Ontario is just dead space and lakes!
Anyways, this is the hardest question I’ve ever been asked because there are a lot that won’t make the cut. Sorry, World’s Largest Horse Ankle Bone in Saskatchewan. Forgive me, World’s Most lavish Buffalo Jump. I tried, World’s Largest Fly Rod. I just couldn’t reasonable fit Western Canada in and make it a road trip that could actually fit inside of a week (ish).

Omg I can’t wait for the second one. I’m irrationally protective of agally’s right to self-determine his national identity and I would read lots of fic about this!
Me toooooo. I mean, I am basically writing this on the “sometimes if you want something done you have to do it yourself” philosophy. But I’m also a dual citizen who went to college with a lot of 3rd Culture Kids (a category that A Gally basically fits, imo), so a lot of my life has been pondering national identity and immigration and this story isn’t a bad way to get some of that out.

Haha, that’s actually getting written by Sarapod, but there’s definitely, like, 1500 words already there. The basic premise is going to be childhood friendship, split, and then Pat being in the band that writes that song.

I have two! The first is short(ish—I have not actually checked the word count in a while) and is mostly about being young and realizing you might want to kiss boys and also friendship.
The second could either be really short and concise or a million words long and is more along the lines of North Star, in that it will be about him being “the Russian” in America and “the American” in Russia and also siblings, because self indulgence, really.
Taken from someone else on another network, deemed too good not to use.
Ask me a question about one of my fics or series. It can be absolutely anything in any project and I will tell you the honest-to-goodness answer (even on the progress/plans for next chapters of current series).
Don’t hold back. Whatever you ask, I’ll answer as truthfully and as completely as possible. You can also ask about my writing as a whole, if you like.
are cafeterias a real thing like do those actually exist in america you just line up and get given gross food and then eat in the same room as your entire school??? if that happened at my school there’d be a riot imagine how loud that would be are cafeterias a myth…do you…do younot have cafeterias elsewhere?
I have been talking to staygold-kanerboy about this for at least five minutes now because, somehow, even though I am aware that all countries are different, I sort of assumed cafeterias, like puberty itself, were universal. Do you guys just watch our teen sex comedies and shake your heads in horror?
Update: Canada has no school lunch programs, revealing a rarely seen moment where America is actually taking better care of it’s poorer citizens than another country.
