Comment on The Blood of Words

  1. Thank you so much !!! I'm glad you're excited, I'm excited about it too.

    I've been lowkey thinking about a boxer!harry au for a quite a while now. The very first summary I wrote in my outline document when I got the idea literally just says : "louis who got out of an abusive relationship a few years prior to the story and who very much does not like gratuitous violence as a result of the trauma of that experience and him navigating falling for boxer harry whose whole entire job relies on violence and the spectacle of it"

    So yeahh, I definitely don't want to ignore that aspect of it. It's kind of the thematic core so it's going to be addressed and explored hopefully more in-depth as the story progresses.

    1. i absolutely love that. i'm always a little bit afraid any time a fic focuses on abuse and/or healing from abuse because it often gets romanticized and glosses over the real trauma people receive but even from this first chapter i can tell you've put a lot of thought into it. i am wayyyy looking forward to this one !

      1. Yeah, the last thing I would want to do is not treat it with the respect and care it deserves, you know ? It's partly why I stayed with the idea so long and didn't start writing it for a while... I just wanted to do it properly. Anyways, I'm really glad you think I'm doing okay so far <3
