Anonymous asked: Prompt for an Auslly fic: Austin is a new worker at Ally's work and she immediately dislikes him but then they grow closer

So it’s an AU then? I have things I need to do, but my next day off is Sunday, so I’ll do some chin stroking and try to figure this one out.

My finger is getting quite the workout from all this stroking… 

Facts:

Out of 7,100 Austin and Ally stories, no filters, Jacks Flaps has reached #77 ranked by favorites. It is #8 in one-shots. That puts the story in the top 1% of its category.

Out of 103,000 Glee stories, no filters, Ctrl-A-Delete has reached #777 ranked by favorites. That puts it in the top 0.75% of its category.

Conclusions:

1. A lot of people write fiction, despite the fact that many of them will never be formally published. Yet they never lose the hope.

2. Always take the time to give your stupidest thoughts room to grow. Jacks Flaps was brought about by a simple pang of hunger, and Ctrl-A-Delete from a one-shot that spawned another one-shot until I essentially said ‘screw it’ and made that monster of a story. It’s also what inspired my first fiction.

3. I really need to edit and publish that fiction, because someone is bound to read it and enjoy it. And all that hard work will not be in vain.

Now that I’ve found the motivation, I need to find the time. But thank you to all you lovely folk who have pushed me this far. It means the world. I raise my cup of tea as a toast to you all.

Crap, it’s raining tea.

Drat, I burned my leg.
