(new tumblr is not my friend)

I love it when a popular new fandom sweeps through, because for a few days my dash becomes an endless stream of goopy happy hilarious dorkitude.

Also when something so traumatic happens in a fandom that all anybody can do is shriek about it together and draw fanart.  That’s great too.

I love you guys.

yo i was lookin at your bio.....wtf did this "Harrison Ostrich" guy do???

Well, my dear friend, this is Harrison Ostrich (see also, my icon).
A very handsome, happy British boy.
He’s Tommy Hoboland’s best friend.
And he decided to get on Tumblr and tweet that he had a new found love for it.
Meaning that this hot mfer probably saw a bunch of thirst posts about him (yes, I’ve made posts about him shut up) and he could also expose us all to his best friend.
So, I wanted him to know that he was not welcome here, not on my damn blog that’s for sure.
And this is the story of why I no longer stan Hoe Ostrichfield.

Apartment 504 — Chapter 3

i dedicate this chapter to my best friend, madison (tumblr: @jaemamba​) who motivated me so much to write this chapter! she literally sat on facetime with me for over an hour today while i wrote this chapter and I want to thank her so much for pushing my abilities and being my amazing and honest editor. love you, mads! 

A few weeks passed as Jinyoung and Mark grew accustomed to living in their new apartment. Compared to dorm life, apartment life was paradise for Mark; he and Jinyoung now had their own separate bedrooms, a joint bathroom that only the two of them had to share, a living space, and a full kitchen all to themselves. This meant no uncomfortable encounters among dorm floor residents, no smelly bathrooms, no dirty showers, and no breeches of privacy.  He had space now—space to live, space to think, space to breathe.  Additionally, the apartment complex was far enough off campus that they weren’t kept awake at night by rambunctious frat house party-goers.

anonymous asked:

what is your best memory on Tumblr? mine is when Jacksepticeye liked one of my posts on my third day of Tumblr (I legit cried I was so happy)

Awww that’s amazing! I don’t think I have one exact best memory but I would say every time I click with someone and make a new friend is probably the best part of Tumblr.

Send me asks!

While you were falling in love with her, I was trying so hard to not let my feelings for you became even deeper.

My friend once said love is easy. Well, i don’t agree. If it was easy i would be with him. If it was easy i would be able to hug him whenever i wanted. If it was easy i would be able to kiss him all the time. If it was easy i would be looking at his eyes now, saying “i love you” and he would say it back .

While we’re on the subject of tumblr’s shortcomings as a fandom platform, I want to say one more thing. I’ve been thinking lately about how it’s really important to remember that fandom isn’t just on tumblr, but on AO3 as well. One angle that I don’t see people talking about a lot with regard to commenting on fic is that it’s another level of interaction that I don’t think fandom can live without–not just because it fuels writers, but because it can fuel readers too. 

Over the course of my fandom life, I’ve gradually worked my way up to leaving more and more detailed comments (not necessarily always longer, but definitely more specific) and let me tell you–it’s incredibly rewarding. Just recently, I left a comment that prompted a writer to share a lot more about what they were thinking while writing the fic and to give me a rec for a fic with a similar theme to the one they wrote. Sometimes writers will reply to comments by going into more detail about the headcanons they have for characters or explaining more backstory for a part of the fic that I mentioned liking. I’ve had people follow me here on tumblr after I commented on one of their fics on AO3 (and as a writer, I’ve followed people who have commented on my fic too–if I can find them here), and from that, sometimes new friendships arise.

What I’m trying to say is that the importance of comments as an aspect of fandom interactions can’t be overstated. It’s not just about stroking a writer’s ego. You can get things out of it too, whether it be a new headcanon to think about, an insight into the creative process, or even a new friend. Being specific about the parts of fic you like can give writers the confidence to write more things in the same vein or to write more period. Back in the LJ days, fic and personal posts were all mixed in together, so it was easier to have those kinds of interactions, but now that those worlds are split, I think it’s even more important to remember why commenting is important and what it can do for fandom as a whole.

So next time you’re leaving a comment, I challenge you to view it not as “paying your dues” for reading the story, but as an opportunity to interact with the person behind it. You don’t have to be long-winded. Tell them what your favorite part of it was. Pick out something that was unique about it and ask about their inspiration. Talk about how it made you feel or what it reminds you of. You won’t regret it. 

i’m lonely and
i don’t know how to make
it sound like poetry

it’s just that i used to fall into friendships.
it’s just that most days i want to fall into
my bed or
my grave
and these bones are too
fragile for show and tell
and i’m like muesli with worse mental health and i don’t want anyone to
look at me except that i want everyone
to look at me and i don’t know what to say i don’t know what to
say i don’t know what to say to
anyone anyway and last year
my best friend
moved 413.4 miles away.

In high school I thought I was happy but I never could have imagined how much better my life would turn out. And the secret to why it got so great is really simple- it’s because I made it that way. I went to college and I sought after good times. I didn’t sit in my bed expecting amazing things to happen to me. I went to parties, I met new people, I took chances, I went on walks, I drank the punch at the frat parties. And of course I had some bad nights but I don’t regret any of it because even out of the bad nights I got stories and lessons and friends. What it comes down to is your life really is what you make it, so why not make it a good one.

Hello friends!

It’s been awhile since I’ve last posted any art; Sorry about that! Between going to an almost week long music festival, starting my master’s courses, and moving into a new apartment, life has been hectic to say the least. As things start to stabilize I hope to post more art!

July’s Featured Game: SLARPG

DEVELOPER(S): Bobby “ponett” Schroeder
GENRE: RPG, Fantasy
SUMMARY: SLARPG is a short, turn-based RPG following the story of Melody Amaranth, a kindhearted but meek transgender fox who’s decided to learn healing magic and become a paladin. She’s joined by her adventurous girlfriend Allison, as well as their friends Claire (a sarcastic, rule-bending witch)(she is also trans) and Jodie (a dependable, somewhat motherly knight). Over the course of the story, our inexperienced heroes will meddle with forces beyond their control and find themselves responsible for the fate of their quaint little hometown. They’ll also fight some spherical frogs, travel to a forgotten land in the sky, befriend a robot or two, and anger the local librarian. But that should go without saying.

How are there so many of us here, on tumblr, but in my every day life everyone is straight? Where my fangirls at? Earpers? Creampuffs? Supergirl? Litchfield inmates? Skaikru and Trikru? Tegan and Sara fans? Why are there no crazy lesbian fangirls in public?? Find me. I want friends.

The fog on these windows won’t clear,
Despite rays of sun shining in from above,
Despite the warmth in their eyes.
Friends bring in heaters sometimes,
Line them up along the walls of my house
Like soldiers on a battlefield.
Somehow I still manage to stumble,
Blindly, tripping over corpses
With mirrors for faces.
I still cannot name her.

Dear you,

You and I will always be special. You will always be that person who brightens up my mood and I will always be that person who understands you. We may have found new people to love, and this time we will not give up on them like how we did with our relationship. But even though we had to break up few years ago, thank you for still being my friend more than anything else. I love you and that will never change.

Okay, so a lot of my posts have been flagged. I went through and requested reviews for a bunch of them, but I definitely didn’t get to all of them, because there are so many to look through. I’m sorry for any inconvenience this will cause you guys.

I’m particularly infuriated by this post being flagged:

This is what I’m talking about. This is what is wrong with tumblr’s new blocking system. There is absolutely nothing in that post but screencaps of Thomas and his friends from his [the first tag on that post] video. I am unbelievably disappointed in tumblr for this.
