Thug Appeal

“Thug Appeal” is probably my oldest story. I think there are definite advantages to performing something that’s very familiar to you. It takes away the anxiety of “OMG, am I going to forget crucial plot details?” For the stage, I framed the incident with details about my obsession with fictional criminals. I think that added framing grounds the story in my most common theme: fangirl expectations vs. reality.

About Diane

Hey, I'm Diane! I'm a writer and storyteller, currently living in Washington, D.C. From a self-composed how-to guide on being an adventure heroine, to an obsessive college crush on the vaguely-Harrison-Ford-resembling editor of the college newspaper, to sundry forays into erotic, historical fanfiction, my material comes from the tragic yet hilarious place where fangirl obsession meets modern reality. I like thrifting, watching NBC comedies, and getting emotional about fiction.
