Cycling is a good one too

im kind of new to yowapedal and i really like t2! i was wondering what some of your favorite fics are because there are a lot... thank you!


Hello! Some of my favourite T2 fics are:

Hierarchy by  (NSFW in chapter 2)

As seasons pass by in the forest, Teshima and Aoyagi meet as predator and prey.

Eternal Sunshine by 

In which Aoyagi forgets, but his memories don’t scatter very far.

Audible by  (NSFW)

"There’s nothing to see on the ceiling so Aoyagi shuts his eyes, lets his vision disappear into imagination so he can focus on the sound of Teshima’s voice on the other end of the line." Aoyagi is always very quiet but Teshima is more perceptive than he gets credit for.

Synchronized by  (NSFW)

"Even this was part of the strategy, originally." Teshima is very good at strategy but some things have become more than just a plan.

Three Wishes by 

“If you could have three wishes… what would they be?”

An Isle of Flightless Birds by 

Aoyagi’s a transfer student from Chiba, Japan, working at a flower shop in New York City to payfor college. Life is pretty monotonous until he meets Junta Teshima, a cute employee from one of least favorite stores who, time and time again, shows him how colorful daily life can be.

Meanwhile, Aoyagi’s coworkers have their hands full as well: his bosses, Tadokoro and Makishima, are swamped with trouble caused by Toudou — the infamous inn-owner who seems to be out to ruin their business — while freshman intern Onoda is swamped with affection from two mysterious admirers.

I hope this helped and thank you for the question!

 Let me go
               Dm     Am
 I don't wanna be your hero
 I don't wanna be a big man
             F                  C
 Just wanna fight like everyone else
 Your masquerade
                    Dm            Am
 I don't wanna be a part of your parade
 Everyone deserves a chance to
  F               C
 Walk with everyone else
 While holding down
                  Dm      Am
 A job to keep my girl around
 And maybe buy me some new strings
            F              C
 And her and I out on the weekends
 And we can whisper things
                  Dm      Am
 Secrets from my America dreams
 Baby needs some protection
             F               C
 But I'm a kid like everyone else
 So let me go
                  Dm   Am
 I don't wanna be your hero
 I don't wanna be a big man
            F                   C
 Just wanna fight with everyone else
 F Dm Am

Things I want to tell people, that I wish people had told me:


  • You don’t have to achieve great things by the time you’re 25
  • You have intrinsic value above and beyond your perceived utility to other people and society at large. 
  • You don’t have to have sex, or have sex in any way that you find uncomfortable or unpleasant, to keep anyone’s love or good opinion of you. They didn’t love you or think very well of you to start with if they demand it. 
  • You don’t have to stay with someone who isn’t meeting your emotional or sexual needs because they need you, or you’ve been with them for awhile, or you need to be in a relationship. You need you. Your time is your own and it is finite. 
  • It’s ok to work at a job you enjoy that doesn’t make you miserable even if it’s not a career and it won’t “lead to anything.” 
  • Your life is not a narrative. It is not leading to anything, there is no overarching thesis, it does not have themes beyond the usual shared cultural experiences of your time and place. This is ok. It does not mean that your life is without purpose or meaning. 
  • It’s ok not to like or get along with the vast majority of people you encounter, so long as you afford them the same respect, courtesy and dignity that they afford you. 
  • Expensive is not always better. 
  • Failure is temporary if you’re still alive. 
  • People are both much better and much worse than you’d suspect, but usually not all at once. 
  • Stop thinking of your future self as a different person and it will be easier to prevent money and health problems. 
  • Let people help you, lean on them when you need to, and be available to help, but don’t swing too far in either direction. Try to carry your half of the life basket as evenly as you can. 
  • Set boundaries, and do not be afraid to kick people out of your life who disregard them. You will not end up alone and unloved. People who love you will be ok with your boundaries. 
  • Your power does not come from money or beauty, but from seeing life steadily and wholly, from a curious and thoughtful mind, and from your ability to say no when you want to, and yes when you want to, and I don’t know when you don’t know. 
  • There will be bad times, maybe lots of bad times, but not only bad times. 
  • Love will not heal the wounds in your soul, but love can give you the impetus to begin the work of healing yourself. 
  • Life might be a long series of starting over, and that’s alright. 
  • You’re really cool, you’re really beautiful, you’re really special. Really. Not to everyone, but to a lot of someones sometimes.

When a plot isn’t strong enough to make a full story


Anonymous asked you:

Hey, I have a little problem with my plot. My MC’s objective is, long story short, to bring a dictatorship down. That’s really the main plot, which he’ll only become aware a few chapters later in the story, but still the main plot. My biggest problem is, I have NO idea how to make it last a book. I do have some side-plots and I’m planning on making more, but I really don’t know how to make “bringing a dictatorship down” last a book AND be exciting…

Subplots are an extremely good way to beef up your book as long as those subplots have an impact on the story. Be careful with them. Filler stuff that does nothing for the characters or the plot will only throw a wrench at your pacing, or possibly even make it feel like the rising action in your story is inconsistent. You want to make sure your story feel like one whole, round, complete story, not different pieces of stories patched together (unless that’s what you’re going for, in which case rock it out).

As you work on those subplots, think about these two things that might help you extend your story:

Character Arcs. If your plot isn’t enough to make a full book, ask yourself if you’re developing your characters enough.

Sometimes, a plot might get all the spotlight, and the characters suffer for it in exchange. Instead of reflections of people, as characters largely should be, we might end up seeing actual characters – as in, people that are taking stage directions and rehearsing lines. Avoid this and make sure your characters develop and change over the course of the plot.

  • Character subplots. These are a great way to give your characters a chance to change and for your readers to really see them as people. Mini-quests, an old friend reappearing, the character going out of their way to do something for someone, etc. These are good tools to build on the character arc. These subplots, however, might take focus away from the main plot in favor of the character instead, so be aware of this.
  • Adding additional characters. Perhaps your cast simply isn’t enough. Perhaps your cast isn’t built to contrast. Adding more personalities and giving them a purpose to fulfill, while also taking the time to round them out, can add different dimensions to your story.
  • Adding additional POVs. This is similar to the above, only the next step up. If one perspective isn’t filling the quota, adding additional perspectives to tell different parts of the same story might help. And if you’re bringing down a dictatorship, there’s a lot of potential in the characters to choose from.

A Challenging Plot. Bringing a dictatorship down should require a great deal of intricate planning, but are your characters figuring out your plot too easily? Are they earning victories or are victories basically given to them?

  • Complicate things. Break some bones, do something to the characters’ personal lives that makes it more difficult for them to achieve victories. If character has to go from point A of the plot to point B, don’t draw them a straight line. Throw a problematic storm onto their hiding ground. Leave a dead body on their path. Something that makes things difficult.
  • Conflict of interest. Use plot to question morality. Sometimes characters know the right thing to do, but the “right thing” isn’t black and white. Maybe a character has trouble making decisions because achieving the goal will hurt someone, or lots of someones, or cause other turmoil. Maybe the character wants to achieve the goal because of the aforementioned. Maybe reasoning is flawed. Maybe deeper interests tempt them.
  • Plot twists. It seems like the main character will safely make a deal with another character, when—PLOT TWIST! If your plot is progressing “as expected”, do something unexpected. Rip out all the seams and throw something in that no one would expect, least of all the characters.

Remember that exciting characters can make a less exciting plot more interesting, depending on what you do with them. If your book just isn’t holding up, turn to your characters instead. Have you spent enough time building them up? Is your cast dynamic and contrasting? Does each of your central characters pull their weight in the story? Do they add something?

If not, ask them what else they can do. Ask them if they have any secrets or phobias that might affect the plot. Look at what they’re missing and see what you can do in the story to fill that up while furthering the plot.

Good luck!
