PINING

The problem is that I love pining with a deep and unhealthy love, but I need the pining to make sense. These people need actual real reasons for not just speaking up. It's a major reason I love Fastening One Heart to Every Falling Thing SO much - because the worldbuilding is such that Geno's been told his whole life that he can't bond or have a real relationship, so of course he wouldn't think he could ever have Sid.

Choosing not to communicate to each other, OTOH, is NOT an actual real reason. There's a line between believably characterized reticence and plot-motivated self-sabotage, and most pining fic falls on the wrong side. WOE IS ME.

Look look! #sagafest promotion is live! It's going to be super low-key, and all kinds of fanworks are welcome. There's a place to submit prompts if that's your thing, and they're collected into a google doc to browse.

Signal boosting appreciated, for those on Tumblr who are so inclined. I hopeful that much Saga loveliness will come out of this. :D
