Author has written 2 stories for Daredevil.

Update 11/01: A lot of you have been asking for a status update. As of yesterday I would have said that I was about 70% through writing the chapter, but this morning I woke up and my laptop is totally fried, out of nowhere. And since I'm a dummy who didn't back anything up, that's a pretty big problem. All of my fanfiction, scripts, job applications, photos, music, etc. is on there, so keep your fingers crossed that they can fix it when I bring it in on Saturday.

Beyond that, some of you have asked about my fellowship applications, which is very sweet of you. Unfortunately, I didn't get any of the fellowships I applied for. And if I don't get steady work soon, I probably won't be able to afford to live in Los Angeles much longer, which will officially put an end to any dreams of writing for television. So I've been kind of preoccupied with that (and figuring out what to do when my lease is up in March) lately, and it's also affected my writing.

If they can fix my laptop this weekend, I'll try to get the next chapter up in a couple of weeks! But if not, it will probably be longer. And either way, real life is slowing things down right now. I'm sorry guys, I hope you understand!

Update 11/18: R.I.P laptop, the hard drive was beyond repair. Working on writing the last chapter again since I lost the draft I was working on, but the story is not dead and neither am I!


Since I got a lot of requests for it, I made a playlist for What They Wouldn't Do on 8tracks! You can find it here:

  • 8tracks.com/ashevillain14/what-they-wouldn-t-do
  • If you're interested, give it a listen! I included annotations for each song explaining why I chose it; if they don't show up for you right away, try refreshing the page after listening to the songs.

  • I'm Ashevillain! My real name is Shannon. Nice to meet you.

    The pen name comes from when I used to live in the city of Asheville, North Carolina, a magical hippie mountain city that everyone should visit. I now live in California, and while I love it here I do miss Asheville terribly, so this is my small tribute to it.

    I'm 25, and I enjoy writing fanfiction as a way of avoiding the fact that I'm supposed to be doing adult things.

    I'm currently living the cliche: pursuing screenwriting in Los Angeles. Television writing, specifically. So far it's not going as soul-crushingly bad as people told me it would, so that's good! Because of this, a lot of my writing tends to play out episodically in terms of scene cuts and dialogue.


    FAQ

    Q: You haven’t updated in three weeks, have you abandoned the story?

    A: No! Never! I try my hardest to update every two weeks once a month, but sometimes real life just throws me off schedule. But I will absolutely finish this story, and possibly even post a sequel (who knows). If you want to know when I’ll be updating next, you can always feel free to PM me and I’ll try to give you an estimate, or at least let you know I’m still alive and checking my FFN account.

    Q: I found your story re-posted on WattPad, should I report it?

    A: Several people have either asked permission to repost the story or just gone ahead and posted it. I did originally ask people not to repost it, but at this point as long as they give credit to the original story (preferably with a link) I don't really care. WattPad confuses me, so if people reposting it means the story reaches a wider audience, then I'm okay with it. If you see someone posting it and claiming it's their own work, however, please let me know!

    Q: Will your story remain T-rated, or will you bump it up to M? Know what I mean?

    A: I get this question a lot because you guys are all dirty-minded perverts. The answer is that it will probably remain T simply because it makes it more accessible to a larger audience. But I will probably post at least one (maybe more) M-rated one-shot with some racier content that will supplement the main story without creating confusion for readers who choose to skip it.

    Q: Why is Matt wearing his black suit if the story is set after Season 1?

    A: A lot of the scenes I had planned out required Matt to be more easily injured, and a large chunk of the story revolves around Sarah finding him very intimidating at first. Personally, I think the black suit is sexier scarier, so it fit with that theme. He'll upgrade at some point in the story, don't worry.

    Q: Did you mean to give one of your villains the same name as one of the villains from Guardian of the Galaxy?

    A: No. I’m dumb. I named Ronan before I saw GOTG, then immediately kicked myself, but it was too far into the story to change it. There’s no connection! Sorry for the confusion.

    Q: Why don’t you make a tumblr?

    A: See above answer: I’m dumb. I don’t really know how to use tumblr beyond browsing tags. Someday I’ll probably get it together and make one, but no promises. If someone wants to make one for me, please do!

    Q: Will you be incorporating Season 2 of Daredevil or Season 1 of the Defenders into your storyline?

    A: I'll pick and choose parts to bring in, but I won't be following the storyline of either one. I think it would be interesting to bring Elektra in for a couple of chapters to shake things up, because she can come and go fairly easily. The Punisher probably won't make an appearance, because when you're mass murdering people you kind of require a main plot, and I already have a main plot. I won't be including anything regarding The Hand, The Chaste, or any ninjas whatsoever, because I didn't like that storyline. The Defenders may or may not make some cameos, but won't be part of the main plot for WTWD.

    Q: Will you read my story and give me some feedback?

    A: My answer to this question always used to be yes! But I've gotten so busy lately that I barely even have time to write my own story, much less read anyone else's and give any sort of solid, thoughtful feedback. If this changes in the future I'll let you guys know! And I do get the time to read things I always try to review.
