You can find part one here and part two here. Both are ~juicy bois~ so prepare yourself. When you get to know someone, they look like themselves. Have you noticed that?

You know what’s nearly here? NaNoWriMo 2019! (If you aren’t sure what that is, you can look at this post where I explain it.) I cannot tell you how excited I am.
