*bawls eyes out*

anonymous asked:

Me and my best friend of five years have been fighting non stop lately and there's a 99% chance that we're gonna stop being friends and I'll be all alone on my birthday tomorrow and then someone informed me that phan is dead bc people are shipping Anthony instead and now I am just bawling my fucking eyes out reblogging cute gifs of them together bc that was like the only good thing left in my life

Okay first of all don’t worry about Phan being dead, it’s not, the Danthony thing is just a phase that the phandom is going through. Once the collabs finish and a bit of time passes with just dnp making video together it’ll fade away quickly, mark my words. 

And I’m really sorry to hear about you and your friend :( it sucks that you’ll be alone on your birthday but I think it would probably be good if you spent some time apart if you’re fighting this often. It’ll give you time to think and reflect and calm down and maybe even figure out if there’s an underlying issue that’s making  things passive-aggressive. That doesn’t mean they’ll have to stop being your best friend, if they really are a true friend they’ll understand. 

10 Random Questions

I was tagged by @gotham-ruaidh… maybe because I ask her a bazillion and one questions daily? Anyway, here it goes…

1.) What are your favorite opening lines from a book?

“There was a boy called Eustace Clarence Scrubb, and he almost deserved it.” Voyage of the Dawn Treader, by C.S. Lewis

A close second: “Marley was dead, to begin with.”
A Christmas Carol, by Charles Dickens

See also: “It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a wife.”
Pride and Prejudice, by Jane Austin

2.) What song always makes you emotional?

Ok, but, define emotional. Like, if we’re being honest, EVERY song makes me some sort of emotional.

Are we talking bawl-your-eyes-out emotional?
Because that’d be Dyin’ Ain’t So Bad, sung by Laura Osnes, from Bonnie & Clyde

Or more life-is-just-too-beautiful-i-can’t-help-but-cry emotional?
Because that’s Open Arms by Journey hands down

Or thank-your-for-the-impetus-I’mma-gonna-take-over-the-world-now emotional?
Because, right now, I’d go with I’m A Star, sung by Natalie Weiss (don’t hate, I love Eden, but NW is more me vocally), by Scott Alan

EVERY ONE OF THESE GETS ME SO EMOTIONALLY HIGH

3.) What is the creepiest thing that has ever happened to you?

This one has me stuck! Creepy? Idk. Really, the only thing that comes to mind is that the first time I listened to the Phantom of the Opera soundtrack (OBC version) I was at a sleep over at my cousin’s house and had to spend the night in a room with a full length mirror. It didn’t end well.

4.) How do you feel about candy corn, the most unappreciated candy in this universe? (No bias here, none at all.)

Strongly dislike it.

5.) Your boozy drink of choice?

Something without booze in it.

6.) What embarrassing/hilarious story never fails to be brought up at your family holiday dinners?

That one time when my uncle prompted three-year-old me to “say Pekingese.” (as in the breed of dog that was at my feet) To which, I promptly replied, perfectly pronounced, “I can’t say Pekingese.”

Or that one time when I was five and his iconic, late-night talk show came on and I exclaimed “Look, mom! It’s Jay Leno!” She says that’s when she knew I needed a bed time… and her first inkling that I was destined for show biz.

7.) Favorite childhood memory?

Ummm. Is it sad that I’m drawing a blank? Probably one of the many family vacations to Florida or Massachusetts.

8.) What’s your ~aesthetic~ (doesn’t matter if it’s real or if it’s a goal)?

Sitting in the corner of a random coffee shop, across the street from a theater, waiting for call time.

9.) TELL ME YOUR HOMETOWN MURDER STORY.

There was this one time where a fight broke out on either side of the river (the border between MN and WI) so the MN guys went over to the WI side to confront them and one of the MN guys got stabbed by one of the WI guys and he died. Almost Hatfield and McCoy for a while. I know the DA who represented the widow of the MN guy and it got dicey. Jury stalemate and everything before they acquitted the WI guy.

Or there was that dude who stabbed his ex-girlfriend THIRTY times, leaving her to bleed to death and then raped and strangled her TEN YEAR OLD DAUGHTER in the basement before lighting the house on fire. Dude got life in prison.

Yeah, lots of real winners in my hometown.

10.) If you were to get a tattoo (or another tattoo), what would you get?

I have the pain tolerance of, like, I dunno, something with a nonexistent tolerance for pain, so I’ll probs never get a tattoo… but if I did it would be something music or faith related on the inside of my left wrist or above my hip.

I tag @bonnie-wee-swordsman, @owlish-peacock36, @mibasiamille, @awesomeeyeroll, @internallydeceased, and anyone else who wants to play along!

SPOILER ALERT FOR PEOPLE WHO HAVEN'T WATCHED WONDER WOMAN.

After watching wonder woman, I have a question.

HOW MANY TIMES WILL MY HEART BE BROKEN BECAUSE A MAN ON AN AIRCRAFT SACRIFICED HIS LIFE FOR HIS LOVED ONE AND MANKIND? FIRST PEGGY AND STEVE. THEN DAISY AND LINCOLN. NOW DIANA AND STEVE.

WHYYYYYYYYY. IS IT A TREND IN COMICS????????

“And this world? This stupid, empty world? I don’t care if it’s hell. I don’t even care. If it’s real or not real, if we’ve all woken up from some online thing or if this is all your stupid imagination, Seth, I don’t care. All I know is that I’m real enough. And Tommy’s real enough. And however much of hell this is…” She suddenly quiets, as if the energy’s been leached from her. “However awful it is, it’s better than there.

I wanna talk about something.

Every single Drarry story I’ve read has been like “Harry thought he was straight bc of Ginny” or “But Ginny” or “He didn’t want to hurt Ginny” and I can understand that bc of canon. But I just want to ask something. Why the fuck was Harry with Ginny in the first place? I mean I love Ginny I really do. But for the first like 4 years that Harry knew her, she was creepily obsessed with him and Harry HATED that kind of attention. In the Triwizard Tournament, the person who was most important to Harry was her brother. The first time he ever had a romantic thought about her was when he had pretty much accepted that he was going to die so yeah who the fuck wants to die when their only kiss was with a girl bawling her eyes out over her ex boyfriend? And it came out of fucking nowhere. It was like “Oh shit there’s this evil guy after me. Oh shit I really gotta sort my life out bc something always happens every year at Hogwarts. Oh shit I gotta kill Voldemort. Oh shit look Ron’s little sister’s kinda pretty. I MUST BE IN LOVE WITH HER WHATTTTTT” like wtf Harry no sit down calm down. You’re not in love with her. You’re a hormonal teenager. And then he breaks up with her bc he’s pretty much gonna die. And then when it’s time for the Hogwarts battle, you know what Harry does? He’s like “GINNY STAY WHERE YOU ARE DONT FIGHT!” But you know who else told her that? HER FREAKING BROTHERS. How Harry thought of her in any non-platonic way is beyond me. Harry always thought of her as a little sister but then he discovered what a dick was and he was like YEAH LEMME MARRY HER. I will never get over the outrage of Harry’s romance with Ginny. I would sooner accept Harry being in a weird love triangle with Hermione than I would accept him with Ginny. Like I said, I love Ginny. I just can’t stand their relationship

What I Read During Vacation

So you may or may not know that I was in Greece for about a month in June and I am finally back home! I had such an amazing time and got to catch up and read some really great fics! I didn’t get to read as much as I hoped I would since each day was jam-packed and I had some other readings to finish for my courses. Nevertheless, I read some awesome fics and I can’t wait to share them all with you! (Also, I’m testing out a new way to show my reviews on these posts as I’ve gotten comments about them being lost within the fic summary! Let me know what you think!)

Kintsugi by witchbane, Explicit, 102k (WIP) ***Graphic Depictions Of Violence
Yuuri Katsuki is a hitman burdened with a debt he can never repay. His target: Viktor Nikiforov, next Pakhan to one of the most dangerous families in the Russian mafia.When the two are drawn into a treacherous alliance after a mission gone wrong, the bonds of love and loyalty to family and duty begin to unravel—even as they get more tangled up in each other. 

Have I said how obsessed I am with this fic? Probably, but I’ll say it again. This is SUCH a good mafia AU filled with action, suspense, sexual tension (!!!!) and amazing writing. MUST read if you like mafia AUs!! 

Money Shot by Ashida, Explicit, 36k (WIP)
So Yuuri waited, felt his heart edge back down from his throat as Victor let him catch his bearings, as he just sat and watched Yuuri calm down, patient even though the time he was paying for was ticking.
“Strip for me, Yuuri.” came his first instructions in the lull of silence, the same words he always got, and this is how it always began.

HOOOOO BOY THIS FIC IS SO AMAZING. I have raved about it so many times on this blog but I really just can’t get enough. SO. GOOD.

What’s meant to be will always find a way. Victor and Yuuri? They’re meant to be.

Incredible actor AU that smashes into you like a train going 100000 km/hr hits you right in the feels over and over and over again. Basically, everything Dianna writes will make you cry forever but her incredible storytelling makes it all worth it, and this fic is no exception.

Yuuri is a college student conducting private fencing lessons for a handsome, rich, and mysterious student. Viktor is not learning to fence because he does medieval reenactments.

Okay, this fic is SO GREAT. I loved the fencing aspect especially because my sister was an Olympic hopeful for fencing so it was fun to read my two favourite characters play the sport I have watched all my life. #writemorefencingfics2k17 ;)

Blackbird by sixpences, Mature, 102k ***Graphic depictions of violence
The year is 1942, and Europe is at war. Captain Victor Nikiforov, an intelligence operative for the NKVD, has been trapped in Berlin by the German invasion of the USSR. Posing as a Nazi industrialist, his days are spent charming information out of Axis diplomats to try and keep the Red Army fighting another day.Yuuri Katsuki, a foreign-educated bureaucrat in the Japanese Embassy, has secrets of his own concealed beneath his unremarkable demeanour. When he uncovers Victor’s real identity, it will alter the course of both of their lives forever.

MUST. READ. One of the best fics I’ve read in this fandom. Incredible writing that engages you right from the start and a storyline that will have you laughing, crying, and biting your nails. Some parts were so intense that I gasped out loud, and other parts so heart-clenching that I may or may not have bawled my eyes out multiple times on the plane. Incredible fic!

The Unknown Unknown by opalish, Teen, 7.4k
Yuuri never meant to become a supervillain. These things just happen to him.

I absolutely ADORE this writer’s style. Such a fun and easy read. Check it out!

Save a Horse, Ride a Cowboy by DiAnna44, Explicit, 1.7k
When Victor receives a cowboy hat from a fan, Yuuri may or may not want to devastate him.

Please send all my love to @literallynothingbutvictuuri​ for writing this fic. #blessed

Yuuri is a history teacher out of a job due to recent cut backs. It just so happens that Phichit works at a school that’s needs a new history teacher. In walks Victor Nikiforov, the undeniably beautiful yet eccentric literature teacher from across the hall with a bit of an obsession with Russian lit and a certain adorable history teacher.

Great teacher AU that I can’t get enough of! Victor is so cute in this and I love how the whole gang’s there. Can’t wait until the next chapter!

Of Bright Stars and Burning Hearts by Reiya, Explicit, 130k (WIP)
Viktor doesn’t remember the first time he met Yuuri Katsuki. This however, is what Viktor does remember…

I can’t rave enough about the rivals series. (I’m not kidding. Search up “umfb&mha” and “obs&bs” on my blog to find hundreds of posts of me screaming LOL) Every update of this kills me in the best way possible!

Nuclear Hearts Club by butterbeerbitch, Teen, 28k (WIP)
Being seventeen and chronically confused isn’t always a walk in the park - especially when you’ve been crushing on your brother’s best friend since you were nine. You’d be crazy not to. Victor’s the best thing to happen to the world since sliced bread.

Wow, wow, and wow is all I have to say about this fic. Such an incredible story and descriptive writing that kept me so engrossed I didn’t even notice the turbulence on my plane flight!

Six Hours Ahead by alipiee, Teen, 51k (WIP)
When Yuuri downloaded the harmless quiz app, he didn’t expect to become best friends with the Russian boy who asked him for a rematch.

I FINALLY got around to reading this and it’s definitely lived up to the hype! Such a great read. Check it out!

And the Stars Will Wait by lily_winterwood, Explicit, 19k
Of all the places he had hoped to take Yuuri during their honeymoon — their first trip together as a married couple — he hadn’t anticipated bringing him back to the family dacha and all the memories it evoked.

More BTDS-verse amazingness!! I’m a sucker for honeymoon fics!

Be sure to give the authors some love! Thank you all for being so patient while I was away. Regular lists are back for the rest of the summer!
