Awkward Writing

I have been working on a piece for just about a month now. I have been really struggling with it for one major reason: writing an "intimate encounter" between two characters you don't ship is hard. I'm running with "intimate encounter", because I don't know if I'll be able to make it through a full blown sex scene. I'm trying, because this encounter is specifically alluded to in a later piece, but it's coming out so awkwardly.

I'm thinking I'm going to have to gloss over a lot, because I don't want it to come across as awkward. These two are comfortable with each other. They are good friends. They are co-workers. And they totally have a sexual history together in my head-cannon. But I just can't write them together. Ugh. Talk about frustrating.


But on a positive note: I finished the first chunk (chapter?) of my YnM and T&B crossover fic. I'll be posting that soon, but I have some of my students for only 2 more days (AHHHHHHHH *panicpanicpanic*), so my focus is there right now. But in 10 more days (AHHHHHHHH *panicpanicpanic*), I will be entirely done with this school year. So you can be sure to expect a whole lot more starting in June. :)

Well sometimes the characters just don't want to do what we want them to do, haha... But when it's important for the plot, force them! (Force them to have sex, in this case! Damn, that sounds pretty illegal o.O ).

By the way, I started watching T&B a few days ago and I really like it so far! I think the episodes are getting better and better the more I watch ^_^

Force them to have sex, in this case! Damn, that sounds pretty illegal o.O
LMAO, right?! They're definitely going to have to have sex, I guess it's just a matter of how explicit it's going to get. I just don't want to deal with it right now, but I can't post other completed works in the series before I do. I'm hoping in 2 weeks things might come easier.

And I'm glad you like it so far! I told my best friend I am making him watch it this summer, and I cannot wait to re-watch the series and catch all the subtleties I missed the first time around.
Out of curiosity, is it available with German subs/dubs? Or do you watch it with English subs/dubs?

They're not getting away, nyahaha! >:D

It's always difficult to find an anime in German so I watch it with English subtitles :)
But that's okay because 99% of the German translations of animes (or mangas, for that matter) are rubbish anyways :'D
