So, I recently started reading Shut Up and Dance with Me by @wittyy-name and @wolfpainters and I just. Sora’s art is gorgeous and Witty’s writing is amazing, and they both inspired me to start drawing again. I’m working on drawing all of my favorite dances from the fic including their audition dance and Keith dancing to Anaconda because that was inspired!
Anyway, these are so much fun to do. These poses are from this video, but I listened to Fireball the whole time (because that is Lance’s theme song I stg). Drawing Lance is such a joy, I love him so much and the dances they chose for him are so much fun to draw.
Azriel merely turned to Cassian, who was staring at Rhys with guilt and love on his face, so deep and agonized that some now splintered instinct had me almost reaching across the table to grip his hand.
Cassian loves and cares about his friends so deeply! And is so appreciative of what Rhys did for them all. It kills him and his selfless nature that he couldn’t do anything to help.
Don’t mind me I’ll just be sobbing over how sweet and sensitive he is ❤💔

Summary: Jason Todd woke up one morning and the last three years of his life had all vanished. One thing he realized, was that there was someone, or something behind it. He follows a strange feeling in his chest to figure out what it is that’s drawing him closer, and how exactly he’s supposed to get his memories back.
8x15 was a great finale guys. After the wedding Stefan and Caroline went away to Italy (Stefans surprise for his wifey) & Damon being Damon tagged along dragging Bonbon with him. Yeah they are all happy and celebrating on the beach under the night sky drunk af
Idk man like I get that Luke was pissed with the gods and had every right to be angry in which made him the perfect person to become and be Kronos but like are we also going to ignore how shitty he was for like making Percy beleive he had a friend or someone to look up to, be betrayed, turned his back on Annabeth when he promised her that they'd always be a family (and spent like his last literal moment of life asking if she loved him) luke was a shitty person just saying ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
Anon, you have no idea how enraged you have made me over the past few hours. I’m going to let you know I’m pissed, I’m not going to hide it, why would I? You need to know just how angry I am, because that has literally driven me to writing this answer. Before I start with the topic of Luke Castellan in general, let’s get a few things out of the way. The first thing, is going to be debunking this absolutely horrid and stereotypical ask you sent me in the first place.
There’s no need in telling me Luke was an absolute imbecile when it came to his judgment skills, we all know he absolutely failed that test.
Not once on this blog have I ever said in my life, that what Luke did to Annabeth wasn’t shitty. It was so horrible, Luke and Annabeth’s relationship was manipulative. He knew she looked up to him and he used it against her and that’s not okay. But just because he was manipulating her, does not automatically rule out the fact that he couldn’t have been being manipulated himself.
PSA: Because I know I’m going to have to repeat myself, I’m not excusing his behavior. I’m looking at the bigger picture.
Lastly, saying Luke was a shitty person because he made Percy believe he was his friend, is a weak argument and wouldn’t make it very far in an actual debate on the grounds that: Percy knew Luke a total of like what, a week? Luke, more likely than not, knew Percy was the target from the very start and treated him like a friend on purpose. He was being manipulative for who? Oh, I think we all know that. And Percy was not nearly as blinded as Annabeth this early on. He got pissed off the second he figured out it was Luke and he stayed pissed off. Percy was fully aware of what Luke was doing and he wasn’t even a quarter as affected by Luke’s betrayal than Annabeth was.
And that last thing, about the love thing? I’m going to get to that at the very end when we get into Luke’s character, but feel free to scroll all the way down right now.
Right now though, we’re not going to talk about Luke right away, because we all know Luke! He was a spectacularly written character! We know him very well, but do you know someone that no one seems to pay attention to? The very cannibalistic, titan lord that was canonically labeled “The Wicked One” in this series.
(I’m putting this under a read more because it’s just that long, but my read more’s on asks haven’t been working lately, so I’m really sorry if you all get stuck with this long post on your dashboards.)
Some more fanart of @tyranttortoise Skeleton Squatters and the Landlady, this time two of my favourite parts from the latest chapter :D
Was going to write something here but my mind went blank… so… yeah…
Where did the hats and sunglasses go after Papy teleported himself and Edge away??? like Edge did throw his hat and sunglasses at Paps but what about Stretch? did he continue to wear it or did they fall off??? like nothing mentions that he takes it off, so… did he keep on wearing it? I got questions???? for some reason I find this hilarious as if he did then no one commented on it and he just kept on walking around wearing the hat and sunglasses for no reason! I I don’t even know anymore, been thinking about it since I re read that part for the sketch and stuff xD
I need more batman media but I don't know what to watch or where to watch it and Netflix took off Young Justice and Justice League :(:( do you have any fic recs or fun facts
to follow if you haven’t already followed them, the first three write FREAKING
AMAZING fanfic and the fourth creates THE BEST fanart I have literally sat and scrolled through these blogs for hours
@camsthisky (good GOSH I love her she writes so much about Dick Grayson)
OH MY GOSH. I
love this story so freaking much. Ok,
imagine if Jason Todd, after coming back from the dead and going through all
that stuff with the Lazarus Pit and training, goes after Dick Grayson to get
his revenge on Bruce. Except when he
shows up at Dick’s apartment, ready to kill the Golden Son, he finds something
completely unexpected. Jason has a lot
of issues, Dick has a lot of issues (courtesy of the Blockbuster incident). I have read and reread this story countless
times, and I can never not cry because I love my broken sons so much. There is a lot of anger, some cursing, much
regret, and brothers being brothers. And Dick is the sweetest most protective [redacted because spoiler] and Jason has a mushy heart after all. It
can stand as complete but I think the author is writing more? Also, either before or after, or both, go to https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qqeNxdyp5CE
and listen to the song. It is my new
favorite song and CAN YOU IMAGINE DICK SINGING IT OH MY GOSH
3. the road
will only be wide (the rain will never stop falling)
This fic is a quiet moment of beauty and rest for Dick
and Damian. Damian draws, and Dick
watches his talented little bro. There
is sunlight. You skin will clear and
your crops will grow and any heartache you have ever had will be healed like
There is a problem in the Batcave, as in, younger
versions of the Batfam keep turning up.
It’s absolutely fantastic, and one of my favorite things is younger
Jason being SO done with his older self and calling him out on stuff and being all protective of his brothers. It gets better and better with every chapter.
this story is not finished yet and the author takes waaay long to post updates
on it but she has promised not to abandon it soo…It is Nightwing-centric, with
a whole mess of comic Teen Titans making appearances. The author has written a lot of stories about
a world where Dick became a Talon, and in this tale Talon-on-the-run winds up
on Earth-1 and Nightwing is trying to figure out who this apparent clone of his
is. Talon Dick has always intrigued me,
and it is interesting seeing him and Nightwing face off.
HOLY HECK this is one of my favorite Jason Todd fanfics EVER. I love the description by the author “The one
where Dick bleeds a lot and Jason argues with everybody.” Jason is in the wrong spot at the wrong time,
ie. He finds Dick bleeding to death and is forced to save him. Tim and Damian make appearances. Jason has anger issues. That doesn’t stop him from caring. Bruce and Jason hash things out in the most
beautiful (painful) way.
which Dick confronts Damian about his practice of taking weapons to school, and
also gets slightly distracted by the idea of living in a vardo. I love this story because it shows the best
way to parent Damian—not by telling him no “because I said so” but by
explaining and debating things like he is smart and capable.
This is THE BEST Nightwing fan film I have
ever seen. I love the Dick Grayson in it—he’s
got acrobatics, sounds like Jesse McCartney (Robin/Nightwing’s VA in YJ), and is quite handsome. He fights, gets the stuffing beat out of him
and keeps getting back up, has a bit of a temper, loves Barbara—perfection. Watch it, you won’t regret it. (Also Jason is there yay! I will take him in any capacity I can get. And I kinda really like the actor for Bruce?)
My favorite Jason Todd
fanfilm!!! Heavily featuring Tim
Drake! Look this adaption is fab, I love
the actors and the dialogue and the fight between Jason and Tim (spoiler?) As far as I know they are trying to put
together a second episode. Watch the
video where Jason Todd tries to get people to donate money for it, its
3. Batman The Animated Series is on Netflix till
September 1st. I’m in the
second season and love it a lot…Alfred is so freaking sassy!
It’s just five minutes
and doesn’t have any dialogue, and it doesn’t come close to deserving an Oscar, but dang it it’s hard to find Damian stuff…and also seeing a little
kid running around in the Robin costume made me realize that there is nothing I
want more than to see Damian Wayne on the big screen, being all angry assassin
kid, and Dick Grayson capturing him in a hug…
5. Gotham on Netflix
I am pretty sure you already watch this? But if not, DO! It is AMAZING. I love it so much, especially Bruce and Alfred and Selina Kyle
E. Some things from Batman: Dark Victory
Okay I know he is a talented young acrobat and all but how the FUDGE did Dick get up on that chandelier?! the kid can truly fly (yeah yeah, the stairs probably lead up to a hallway floor/balcony that Dick leapt off of but still) I wonder how many grey hairs the kid gave Alfred in those first weeks alone
On dark days I like to remember the time bby birb Dick Grayson caved in the Joker’s cheek with a well-placed kick. My nine or ten year old son then proceeded to smash in the Joker’s teeth with a stick a few minutes later and it was amazing
You think I lied?? Nah my son Dick Grayson was cracking teeth and bones and witty puns from Day 1. Go Robin!!!
Okay so just look at this picture. Bby Dick is SO FREAKING TINY!!! also very intense. OMG Batman’s fists are as big as his first son’s head! *cue a very many feels in my heart*
F. Random things I am including because I feel like it, and they all revolve around Dick Grayson mostly because he is my fave so…
1. Apparently some official websites say that Nightwing’s martial arts specialty is Aikido. I do not think that word means what they think it means
2. “I close my eyes now for a few moments and I can see my parents riding the air current with me. Forever young. Forever strong. Their faces wide with excitement, big smiles on their faces, enjoying the adrenaline surge even more than I do. And there is one thing I am sure of … my parents would be proud of my life.” (Nightwing, Nightwing #141, 2008)
[Talking about Blüdhaven] “It’s a hopeless case. A lost cause. A town so mired in corruption and sin that it’s drowning … When Batman sent me here, I thought I’d solve one case and book. But then I realized … if I could make a difference here – well, that’d be something. This filthy old town needs me…. Surrounded by a dozen of my worst enemies. No way out. Nowhere to hide. The little brat was right. I do love it. (Nightwing, Nightwing Secret Files #1, 1999)
4. There once was a dumb writer who thought killing Nightwing for real would be a good idea, and he tried writing toward that end, but everybody else was like hahahaha NO
5. I used to hate when fic writers would shorten Damian’s name to Dami (kind of like how I majorly dislike when people shorten Sirius Black’s name to Siri, he is not an iPhone gosh). But then I read a post on tumblr that said something about Dami actually meaning something in Arabic, something like blood or life-blood or heart blood…I can’t exactly remember what and maybe it isn’t even true but I choose to believe it is and that Dick knows exactly what it means and he calls Damian Dami as a way to show how special he is, how much Dick loves him. Because Damian is his little brother/son and means the absolute world to Dick. And Damian, though he pretends to despise all nicknames, absolutely LOVES that Dick calls him this
I know people are upset, but don't you find it curious that super private Chris, after years of silence, decides to talk about his boyfriend so awkwardly and kinda out of the blue, when not really asked specifically about him? And even more interesting, he feels comfortable doing it only after he publishes a book showing how contracts and all of that works? (Haven't read it yet, but it's my understanding that he talks about those stuff).
If the manner in which Chris officially “outed” Will doesn’t ring suspicious. You simply are just not paying attention and are ignoring the glaring neon signs flashing above his head.
It was so incredibly awkward. They knew they had to insert it somewhere. Tried and failed to make it “spontaneous.” It was anything but.
I just feel bad for his poor cousin who tried so hard to protect the identity of his “boyfriend.” Just to have Chris broadcast it to world.
Things haven’t been going well for Steve; he lost his apartment and his job as well as still trying to cope with the death of his mother. Crashing on his friend’s couch soon leads to something more for him and Clint’s roommate, who shares more with Steve than they both would have expected.
california sold by @isthatyoularry → read here notoriously closeted boyband member harry styles is famous on a global scale, meanwhile louis, as his best friend, is back home in manchester, living the typical life of a 24 year old. when harry needs louis with him in LA, a publicity stunt gone wrong changes their friendship forever. a fake-relationship AU between two lifelong best friends.
So apparently I never posted this idea.. I don’t really consider it mine since I was heavily inspired by florbe-triz’s Delinquent!Mob AU.. but anyways..
So imagine.. everything is the same but Mahiru is a delinquent.. how you may ask? Well…
Remember how his view of the world was really impacted when his Uncle was there to take him in after his mother’s death?… weeeelll what if he wasn’t there?.. what if he never took him in and nobody wanted him?.. like would he become a foster child?.. I don’t really know how the system works but just imagine it for now.. he would’ve never learned his views from his uncle that kinda make him what he his..
I know that’s kinda odd, considering that Mahi is literal sunshine and I bet he still can be (to some extent) but you know, I’ve had a lot of foster friends and they’ve had some dark times so it’s only natural… Mahi would rebel. And maybe not just for himself because he is a pretty selfless person.. but maybe for other children?..
…I dunno.. I’m not as complex as others with coming up with stories… ^^; add headcannons to this or message me some, I would love to hear~..!! 💙
I'm re-reading AGOT and it struck me as odd how Ned passes through the Neck and doesn't try to contact him - bannerman, friend, and the man who apparently saved his life at the Tower of Joy. I would think Robert would want to see him too since Reed tried help Ned save/find Lyanna. Do you think it's strange that we haven't met Howland Reed yet, especially how Ned passed through the Neck? I guess he'll finally appear to talk about Rob's will at some point?
Well, communication with House Reed is difficult even for their friends, because their castle is mobile and they have no maester. Look what Robb has to do just to try and establish contact with his vassal:
“A dozen streams drain the wetwood, all shallow, silty, and uncharted. I would not even call them rivers. The channels are ever drifting and changing. There are endless sandbars, deadfalls, and tangles of rotting trees. And Greywater Watch moves. How are my ships to find it?”
“Go upriver flying my banner. The crannogmen will find you. I want two ships to double the chances of my message reaching Howland Reed.”
Admittedly, that’s in wartime, but it would pose challenges and eat up a lot of time even at peace, and Cersei’s not staying in the Neck any longer than she has to. So no, I don’t think it’s strange that we haven’t met Lord Howland. He’s a hard man to find, and GRRM had good reason to make sure of that: he knows who Jon’s parents are. When he does appear, I imagine it’ll be to reveal and/or discuss said parentage.

Stiles is used to selling himself to make ends meet. But it’s getting harder to keep those ends meeting, and there’s only so much of Stiles to go around. Until a too-fancy car shows up in his neighborhood, and he meets Derek Hale.
All Derek wants is Stiles’s time, someone to stay on his arm for events and smile for the cameras. It’s the easiest job Stiles has ever had, the best-paying one he’s ever had, and he’s more than happy to sign up.
Derek is everything and nothing Stiles expects him to be, with his tailored suits, sharp mind and his quiet way of caring. But it’s just a job and Stiles never meant to fall in love.
Hey Pilot! I'm just curious but have you read any of Rick Riordan's books? They're really awesome and definitely worth a try if you haven't read yet XD
I have read the Percy Jackson series but none of his other works (I gave the first of the roman one a shot but eh, not really my jam). The Percy series though was incredible and i enjoyed it very much at the time, the tone of voice its written in is GREAT. Might be worth a reread soon. I think Percy as a character was amazingly handled and I was really fond of him throughout the series, even when i thought he was being a little bastard.
tiny Briggs things that didn’t make it into the anime
1. NEIL’S AWFUL SHIRTS (the second one is louder than Buc’s automail) - ok so these would have been REALLY annoying to animate and I can see why they changed him into something a little more reasonable, but it’s still impressive and I wonder what else he has in his closet
2. this guy - in the manga he really looks like he could have some Xerxesian ancestry, but his coloring is different in the anime (?????)
3. Falman’s revenge for Ed throwing him under the bus
4. FRECKLES KID AND SANDWICH GUY - look at them!! look at them!! I love them so much
5. MILES SALUTING SCAR
6. this (ok I know I’ve included this in another post already but I love it) although we did get a similar scene that ISN’T in the manga so I guess we’re just about even there
while reading the thirteen letters, i couldn’t help but wonder how they would have affected history. surely they would have inspired people to write about them. basically, this is hozier’s album as inspired by the letters.
Darlin, don’t you join in. you’re supposed to drag me from it // It’s selfish maybe but I didn’t want you out here… i even thought “when i get killed out here, maybe it’ll stop him from trying to get in”
ii. like real people do
Why were you digging? What did you bury before those hands pulled me from the earth? I will not ask you where you came from. I will not ask and neither should you // They fucked me up, but I don’t ever wanna tell you just how bad. I won’t even now, don’t even want to think those things in your direction. But I will tell you — mostly because God willing you’ll never see these — I will tell you that when you first came for me I thought, hand to the Lord, that I was finally dead.
I need you to run to me, run to me, lover. Run ‘til you feel your lungs bleeding // You piss me off so God damn much. Jesus Roosevelt Christ. I’ve got your number, you reckless fucking dumbass.
iv. in the woods somewhere
Dear, in the chase there as I flew, forgot all prayers of joining you. // War stories don’t really have much by way of morals or lessons, but I figured I’d tell it anyway.
v. in a week
We’ll lay here for years or for hours, thrown here or found, to freeze or to thaw. so long, we’d become the flowers. two corpses we were, two corpses I saw […] I’ll be home with you, I’ll be home with you // That’s all I want to do anymore. Lay on the baked red ground next to you until my bones heat up. Warm again. Warm again with no more of that thick dried blood smell in my nose, just you, clean like your soap. You’d be heaven for anyone, but you’re especially heaven for a sinner like me.
vi. my love will never die
Honey please try to love me. Honey please, honey try. My love will never die […] Honey pick a blossom and hold it, hold it to your breast. // The God’s honest truth is that I ain’t ever gonna love again. She’s your true north. I know what that means, because you’re mine.
vii. it will come back
I know who I am when I’m alone. I’m something else when I see you. You don’t understand, you should never know how easy you are to need. // I told you, you heard me: I told you never to follow me into Hell. Now I’m not vain enough to think that’s why you’re out here now — if there’s any person in what’s left of this God forsaken planet who’s part of a bigger picture, it’d be you. But I’ll keep saying it until it sticks. You got nothing to prove. I’m not worth much, I damn well know that, but I’ll ask you anyway: Stay for me.
viii. foreigner’s god
I’ve no language left to say it, but all I do is quake to her.
Breaking if I try convey it: the broken love I make to her[….] Screaming the name of a foreigner’s god, the purest expression of grief. // But then I put my face in your hair and thanked God it was him and not you. I thought, if He had to take someone, at least it wasn’t you. It was the worst thing I ever thought but it’s true.
ix. arsonist’s lullabye
When I was 16 my senses fooled me; thought gasoline was on my clothes. I knew that something would always rule me, I knew the scent was mine alone […] Don’t you ever, tame your demons - but always keep 'em on a leash. // Tell you something. Tell you another secret, because this one, this one I won’t ever tell, not to God, not to a priest, and sure as hell not to you. In that base we burned the bodies in a furnace. I hadn’t eaten in days. The truth is simple. The smell made me hungry.
x. to be alone
but you don’t know what hell you put me through to have someone kiss the skin that crawls from you […] it’s the god that heroin prays to // You make me hungry. You understand? You make me hungry. That mouth pink like spun sugar, though it doesn’t stop you from talking fit to cut anyone down to bits with your angry words. A spitfire since you learned how to speak, and I’ll tell you something, it’s hell to love a fighter.
xi. work song
When my time comes around, lay me gently in the cold dark earth. No grave can hold my body down- I’ll crawl home to her. // Here’s the truth — baby, here’s the truth. I’ve got a rootless heart. I don’t think I’m meant for loving, or at least not anymore. And I should die out here. I’m the kind of guy who’s not meant to go back.
So how long have I loved you for? Womb to tomb, sweetheart.
xii. from eden
There’s something wretched about this, something so precious about this. Where to begin? Babe, there’s something broken about this, but I might be open about this. Oh what a sin. […]
Honey, you’re familiar like my mirror years ago. // Never told another soul this, and I guess I never will, but I think of that orange, that one evening, every single time when I’m sure I’m about to snuff it for real. […] And when I was shot the other day and so sure it was over — good-bye, motherfuckers, I’m finally going back home — I wasn’t all that scared. In that one minute it was fine — everything was alright. I bought an orange. You smiled at me. And Jesus Christ, it was fantastic.
xiii. take me to church
The only heaven I’ll be sent to is when I’m alone with you. I was born sick, but I love it. Command me to be well.
Amen. Amen. Amen. Amen. // Sancta Maria, Mater Dei, pray for us sinners, but don’t spend too much time on my immortal soul, because not even divine intervention can help me now. I know when to walk away from a fight and trying my damnedest not to need him was a losing battle.
oooh i loved your headcanons for when the boys are sick! What about their reactions to MC being sick?
YES GOOD also thank you i’m glad you liked the last one :D
DROPS EVERYTHING TO TAKE CARE OF YOU
“Yoosung don’t you need to go to class?” you ask feebly.
“Class? Oh don’t worry, I emailed all my professors and told them I was sick. Now be quiet and rest up!”
You want to scold him and tell him to go to class but you also have a fever and feel like your head is going to explode. You’ll scold him later.
At your beck and call – if you even hint at wanting something he’s ON IT.
Is actually pretty excited that he has an excuse to cook for you (not that he doesn’t cook for you when you’re not sick, but this is just different lol).
Gathers all the blankets he can and makes a blanket and pillow nest for you on the bed, with the end table stocked with an always-full glass of water and tissues.
Unless you want it to be quiet, he always has a movie (probably Disney) on the TV. He snuggles up with you to watch until you fall asleep, stroking your back and/or hair all the while.
When you express concern of being in such close proximity while being all sniffly and gross: “I’m studying medicine, so I have to get used to stuff like this anyways. Plus, a little snot isn’t enough to scare me away from the one I love!” how… romantic? lmao he sounds so proud tho
First, is appalled you got sick in the first place. Goes slightly mom-mode on you: “Is this because you skipped your meals? You haven’t been getting enough vitamins! I knew it!”… continues on for a few minutes. He’s just worried. <3
Hates it because he just wants to protect you but he cAN’T PUNCH A COLD
(so instead he’s gonna punch it by making sure you drink lots of orange juice and take vitamin C supplements)
“Zen you’re gonna get sick too if you keep hanging around me”
“MC, I might as well already be sick because if you suffer I suffer too!”
ok whatever you say zen
Constantly apologizing for some reason? And with the saddest look on his face… “MC, I’m so sorry you’re sick.” “I’m sorry your nose is so runny, that must be awful.” “I’m sorry, it sounds like your throat is killing you.”
“Shhh Zen it’s not your fault, it’s okay.”
“Well I know, bUT I CAN’T STAND TO SEE YOU LIKE THIS ;^;”
Every time you cough a new glass of water practically materializes next to you.
Lots of canned soup! He apologizes for not making soup from scratch, but he wanted to get you your food as fast as possible and didn’t want to risk messing up homemade stuff.
Really wants to skip work to be with you. You and Jaehee convince him to go… but he only stays half the day every day till you’re better.
While he’s away, he’s torn between calling you every ten minutes to make sure you’re okay or leaving you be because he knows you need to sleep to get better.
Settles for having a security guard come in every half hour or so to check on you and send him reports. You have to laugh at the overkill, but it’s sweet that he’s worried and trying to be considerate (in his own special way lol).
Of course, you have only the best doctor(s) taking care of you, but really there’s not much they can do for the common cold…
Jumin: [FROWNS LOUDLY]
(Jumin, as scary as your displeased face is it will not usher a cure into existence, it’ll be okay.)
If you want to do an activity with him, he’s even more eager than usual to participate. It’s almost like he feels that if he can make you smile, you’ll recover faster.
Him reading to you before bed isn’t uncommon, but when you’re sick he always lets you pick the book and does it without fail every night.
