This would be for the anon-chan who asked to hear my singing voice (although I have no idea why you would wanna hear it >~<). To give you background, this was an older recording of 2 years agoish where I sung a particular poem for a project (a cookie if you can guess who it is written by/which poem it is~ AND NO USING GOOGLE, otherwise no fair, yah? XD).
My bassoon teacher, Frank Morelli, is holding a concert at St. John’s Episcopal Church in Brooklyn, featuring him and his Juilliard School studio (myself included).

The address is: 139 St. John’s Place, Brooklyn, New York, 11217. Come and support us, and maybe even supply a little donation for us!
JUST PLACEHOLDERS FOR MORE OLDER POPULAR SHOWS RERUNS AND NEW SHOWS RERUNS
Sigh. Well, it was fun while it lasted. Though I think it was not surprising seeing that others sensed that it’s not finalized until a week towards that schedule.
Heck, Gravity Falls had that reruns placeholders and now they’re replaced by the finalized schedule as well.
Wander slots are now replaced by more Phineas and Ferb reruns, one or two Gravity Falls reruns, and reruns of previous new episodes of Futureworm, Milo Murphy’s Law, Right Now Kapow, Lab Rats Elite Force, Star Vs. The Forces of Evil, and Walk the Prank. These are the new line-ups of reruns after Monday Disney XD will stick to (and has always been since August in the mornings, now in the evening since kids are back to school). So Wander is not likely to pop up in the rerun schedule for a long while.
I guess Disney-ABC Television Group ordered Disney XD to focus more on the new shows and older previously high rated shows than promoting the lesser successful rated shows (including Wander, 7D, Randy Cunningham, and Penn Zero despite planned to air all of Season 2 this Fall). And it’s business that they’re restructuring the promotion planning and fundings on newer shows and high rated shows to keep the channel up float and choose which highly rated show can premiere on Disney XD on Disney Channel block.
Though what if Disney knew about the campaign and decided to really ignore it by yanking the show off the air for real? Maybe they thought that we as adults aren’t the right audience to cater to since their mindset is to market the show and their other shows as always towards kids 2-11; 6-11 and boys same range that we’re radically not part of the financial ratings trend.
Then again, Disney has occasionally embraced the adult fandoms of Gravity Falls and Star Vs. the Forces of Evil IF the ratings in the kids demo and social media trends as visible to Disney’s eyes meet the profitable demands relative to the budget and engagement by kids. Wander never had that despite the buzz in S2 except for the okay ratings and really good reruns ratings.
See, we’ve made all our progress work some way, and got Disney’s attention. The monthly trends have been doing good and will grow stronger each month. But I think Disney would really appreciate the demands more if their targeted audience (kids and parents) would join in the fun and expressing their thoughts about the cancellation whether they noticed or not. They’re the ones who dictate in the age group ratings on whether the show gets cancelled or renewed for years to come in the end.
I mean, look at how Gravity Falls is beloved below:
This show here (which I do love, don’t get me wrong) made a huge impact with viewers and fans for its mysteries, serialized elements, smart writing, humorous characters, and huge praises by social media of how it’s very unique from other shows that it’s worth a buy to watch it on Disney XD, a channel that is niche and limited from viewers in cable plans.
Gravity Falls wasn’t just successful because of its big fandom, not just because of how amazing the stories are (which they are in quality), not just because of how much the creator is engaged in the show’s activities with the fans (SDCC and others). It is successful because the Ratings were off the roofs in the kids demographic (1 million views in average on Disney XD), social media buzz were so visible to Disney, the merch. being made possible by huge ratings sold pretty good, and the Journal 3 sold out like crazy with many fans kids and adults lining up to get a signature from Alex Hirsch.
These reasons are enough to let Disney consider Gravity Falls as one of their most successful animated shows amongst Kim Possible, Phineas and Ferb, the Disney Afternoon shows, their 2000s live-action sitcoms, animated shows despite ending after 65 episodes in the 2000s, and recently, Star Vs. the Forces of Evil (its S1 run did rather well which granted it a S3).
Wander Over Yonder has the same qualities as GF and Star Vs. in fandoms (despite not as big), its funny and cartoony stories, fun musical numbers, and the crew’s engagement with the fans in social media sites (plus SDCC). But what it lacked are: the big ratings, social media buzz outside of Tumblr, and revenues to make merch. possible. Therefore, despite still liking the show Disney never considered Wander as one of the most successful, as they feel that not a lot of kids are engaged money wise. No big word of mouth in many mainstream media entertainment sources. Just a decent run of revenue to last after 2 Seasons to then move on to find new shows or request Craig McCracken to make a new show that will fit the Disney XD brands of funny shows and sometimes serialized ones (after Gravity Falls’s impact). And the same thing can be said for The 7D, Randy Cunningham, and Penn Zero. As well as most of the future Disney XD shows made cheap or high quality whether ratings are good enough to expand past 2 Seasons.
Look, I know that part sounds like it’s now impossible as Disney’s handling with animated shows are very different than Nickelodeon and Cartoon Network when it comes to thinking about reviving shows that fans wanted to bring back. Disney is mostly on short-term runs for their shows with one exception of keeping 1 or 2 for more seasons if ratings are off the roof.
But we still remember how Kim Possible got one more season by popular demand. It was just sheer luck on that show to make it possible.
See, this is a big challenge and a set of periods of frustrations and doubts we’re likely gonna go through. We’re not giving up hope. Even if this would take at least a decade towards nostalgia peak (like Hey Arnold and Samurai Jack) so long as some of the old crew, Craig, and the Voice Actors are still alive and around in the animation business. We’d be lucky if we ever did succeed within a few years or months based on how strong our #SaveWOY campaign is doing.
But we’re dealing with a big corporation functioning in statistics, money, and marketable approach in how successful their brands are. Animated Movies have been on the roll. But TV animation is a challenge to maintain their line-ups while funding new show ideas.
Our only hope for Wander Over Yonder no matter what the future hold, is that as time goes by, both financially and appealing wise, with more kids and parents engaging in the fun as much as us older fans, the show and the crew get the respect and admiration for what it is and how cool and exciting it would be to revisit the silly galaxy for one more go in Season 3 with a very promising arc for Wander dealing with a threat worse than Lord Dominator, seeing Lord Hater’s backstory, and many more cartoony antics and musical numbers to see.
Disney does appreciate our wishes and admiration on Wander from us, but if kids and parents join in and express their thoughts on how good the show really is and buy more of any Wander related products (episodes, and the Personalization Shop), then Disney might listen and realize that this show could be a bit more marketable now than in the past.
Prove Disney that you, the kids, the parents, and casual folks who understands others’ interests in the show, wanted to see more Wander content (the show and more merch) money wise and quality wise with much excitement. And allow Craig McCracken back on board with some key players that made the show great in the past to finally finish the Main 4′s story arcs they’ve been wanting to tell.
Could you write an El Diabloxreader where the reader is a little kinky and enjoys getting minor burns when things get heated, but when the funs done they’re still hella tender.

Everything was perfectly euphoric. The two of
you a tangle of bare limbs covered only by a thin sheet. Anything more would be
too hot. From where you laid with your head on his chest you could feel his
heard racing and yours was most certainly doing the same. You smiled up at him,
kiss swollen lips and all. He leaned towards you and mumbled something, softly,
“I have known idea what you just said.” You
whispered “, but it sounded like a compliment.” You turned around in his
arms and pressed a kiss to your devil’s tattooed nose.
“And if it wasn’t? Maybe I just called
you a fish.” Diablo teased, smirking playfully.
You clutched your chest in muck hurt “You
“Are you sure, pescado?”
“Dia.” You whines, moving to straddle him
“Yeah, you talk too much.” with that you gave
Diablo a kiss, slow and loving, He kissed back with just as emotion.
Instinctively his hands drifted up your thighs. Suddenly you hissed and pulled
“Amor?” Diablo’s hypothetical eyebrows
furrowed in worry. You looked down and saw the angry red hand shaped marks on
You giggled, brushing his hands away. ”It’s
“I’m not so sure pollito.”
“Oh relax, you know I love it when you do
that. You react the same way afterwards every time, Diablo.” You never called
him Chato, that’s who he was before. Not anymore though. He was a different man
“But nothing. I’m not a doll.” You said
softly, looking him straight in his black rimmed eyes.
“Yes you are, but you ain’t no one’s doll bit
mine.” He replied, rolling the both of you onto your sides, he pulled you
against his chest. You smiled when you felt his nose nuzzling into your scalp.
He flicked off the lamp and pulled the sheet back over you.
“Te amo.” he said, just as you started to
drift to sleep.
It’s my birthday today and I don’t think I ordered up cyclone conditions for it. South Australia was hit with a massive storm yesterday and today. Cyclonic winds, tornadoes and torrential rain. The whole of South Australia lost power…..over 1+ million people. Cellphone services went out after back up power drained. It was not a fun night here and though it’s now daylight out there, still looks rather awful. Happy Birthday to me indeed.
I got distracted with this one, because the longer I left it, the more scenarios I wanted to write. I finally managed to settle on this one. Canonically, Edward and Winry don’t actually start falling for each other until after Winry goes to Rush Valley, but I wanted this to be in Resembool (is that how it’s spelled? I’ve seen it so many different ways I can never decide), so I’m ignoring the timeline for the moment.
Thank you for the ask!
Edward had decided that Resembool was very nice. It was quiet. It was slow. No one was trying to kill him with anything more effective than a wrench. There were no annoying military officers trying to woo him under their command.
And damn it if they didn’t get out of there soon, he was going to take a leaf out of the Colonel’s book and set something on fire.
It was just…so time consuming. To sit there. And do nothing. For days. Images of books he could be reading and research he could be doing constantly floated through his mind. Surely there were books out there right now that could give him the solution to their problems that he wasn’t reading because he was sitting on the porch in some rural town with a library primarily devoted to farming textbooks.
It almost made him wish he had saved Hoenheim’s books from their house before burning it.
Luckily, it had been a full thirty minutes since he had last checked Winry’s progress on his automail, which meant that he had a pretty good chance of not getting murdered if he went and checked again.
He lurched up from the porch, barely steadying himself with his flesh arm. Walking without the automail could be such a pain. No sooner had he taught himself to balance without it, it would be back on again and he’d have to relearn all over again.
He managed to get up the stairs without falling and dying. Excellent. Time to celebrate the little victories.
Winry’s workshop was at the end of the hall, and he could hear sounds of…whatever it was she did with the automail drifting towards him. So, not done then. But maybe she was almost done.
Ed was at a supreme disadvantage in these types of situations. He knew nothing about automail, despite having it make up 50% of his limbs, and so he relied entirely on Winry’s knowledge to deal with any and all automail problems. This normally resulted in constant questioning on his part, and much annoyance on hers.
In order to avoid the same skull-cracking situations that had occurred the last few times he’d barged into her workspace, Ed satisfied himself with standing a few feet behind his mechanic, watching her progress.
It began to be rather soothing. Though it lacked the sound of pages turning and pencils scratching, the soft sounds of maintenance seemed reminiscent of the hours of research that normally calmed him. His stance settled slightly, and he began to appreciate the peacefulness of Resembool for the first time in a long time.
There was one thing that broke the rhythm. Every so often, a lock of hair would fall into Winry’s face and she would adjust it. It wasn’t that it was distracting that the hair fell differently every time, or that sometimes she threw it over her shoulder and it fanned out and looked really soft, or that he rarely saw her look focused instead of annoyed and that there were details of her face that he’d never noticed before…
He was just worried that her constant need to move her hair out of her way would slow her progress, or even put her in danger. Loose hair around machinery was dangerous, after all. Yeah, that was it. He was worried.
It would be so easy for her to tie it back or something. Why hadn’t she tied it back? Did she know how to braid it? He had started to braid his hair when it started to obstruct his view of the alchemy texts he was reading. Oh wait, Winry had taught him to do that. So why didn’t she…?
Perhaps it was because she had been distracted by the automail and hadn’t had a chance to do it. Ed forgot about food while researching, surely Winry could have forgotten about her hair. That was ok, he just had to remind her. Though, she didn’t have to bother, he knew how to braid, he could do it himself…
Without really thinking, he reached out his flesh arm and started gathering her hair to the back, where he could properly braid it.
Winry jumped, then spun around looking more alarmed than he’d ever seen her. Luckily, she settled a bit seeing it was him, but still looked rather shocked.
“H-how long have you been standing there?” she finally managed to get out, eyeing him warily.
“I was thinking that maybe you should braid it, to keep it out of your way,” Ed responded.
Wait, he thought. That was not what she asked. It was also beginning to dawn on him that he had actually come up behind her and touched her hair, and he could feel his face turning an alarming shade of red.
She looked at him suspiciously. “You were going to braid my hair with only one arm?”
He had forgotten about the one arm thing. How had he forgotten about that? It was why he had come up here. To check on his second arm. How had he gotten so distracted?
“Um,” he managed to get out, face fully red now. What, he couldn’t say anything more intelligent?
Winry sighed in a long-suffering way. He’d heard that one from Al several times. He thought he heard her call him an idiot, but he wasn’t sure, and before he knew it she had led him out of the room and deposited him in the hall.
“Your arm will be ready in a few hours. Go help Granny with dinner.”
Dazed, he made his way down the hall. He was a state alchemist! A genius prodigy! And he couldn’t have had a more intelligent conversation?
As he walked, he rubbed his fingers together absently, remembering that her hair had been rather soft…
Omg I’m listening to some more Blink 182 songs and what I’m getting from them is he hates women and kind of sucks as a person and runs them away and is bitter about it. It’s fun music though, I like it!
In exactly a week I’ll have brithday, yay! I’ll be 27 wtf, people live that long?
I don’t think I’ll do anything fun to celebrate it, though. I need to be at work and prepare for my studies. And besides I have like one friend irl. And last but not least I’m very broke and need to save money for a doctor because my stupid knee hurts again.
Still, if you have some spare cash and want to buy this loser coffee/dinner/cake (which is totally better than sex), here’s my Ko-fi page. I don’t earn much, so every donation is very appreciated.
i dont think ive ever finished msq in one day until now and i am honest to god floored with this installment?? it turned everything i dreaded on its head and wow ive never been truly excited for msq until now

I was wondering if you enjoy the look of poetry? I just wrote something and I worked on the pacing and words so I could have section that are like, levels? Longer lines into smaller ones etc. Is that a thing that people enjoy? Or is it just me?
I looooooove formatting. It’s so much fun! Even though tumblr makes a bitch about it. I have this HUGE notebook that just lets me scribble all over the place in different ways/styles/spacing or whatever. I also think it can be important , I think it can be beautiful. “Let the white space breathe on its own” as anne carson would say.
Well, my first ever exposure to “Wander Over Yonder” was actually at Disneyland.
This was back in 2013 when the show was still airing on the Disney Channel. I was on my way to work when I saw a promotional poster for the show in front of the Disneyland theme parks. I don’t know why but this poster really seem to stood out for me, I thought maybe I would check it out if I ever had the chance to do so in the future.
I don’t remember the specific day when it took place but I do remember was on Amazon searching for a new something to watch and the site had recommended the show “Wander Over Yonder” so I decide to give in to my curiosity and give it watch. I bought the first episode that was available on Amazon “The Greatest”.
My first thoughts were “Man, are the color bright! It kinda hurts my eyes a bit.” I did enjoy the cheerful atmosphere and fun characters design though, it was like watching an episode of the “Powerpuff Girls” (it was then I realize that this show creator was Craig McCracken). However the plot seem a bit simple and the show seem as though it was aimed more for a younger audience, so my first thoughts of it was “its okay, its cute but nothing too special”. It was then I decided to wait until a few more episodes were available to watch before given the show another try.
It wouldn’t be until 2015 that I watch another “Wander Over Yonder” episode during that time I didn’t watch the show in chronological order, but went by what episode sounded the most interesting. My second episode was “the Fancy Dinner Party but it was the third episode I watched that won me over completely “The Date”. I just loved every about it from the humor to the fluid animation. Please @disneyxd give “Wander Over Yonder” a third season.
And I’m wondering how Shinsou’s voice will be like?
I wanted him to sound really bored, like Aizawa. If any of you have watched Haikyuu!! I wanted him to sound like Tsukishima, bored and snarky. Something like that! (Fun fact though: Tsukishima’s VA [Uchiyama Kouki] is already voicing Shigaraki so his VA probably won’t voice Shinsou. Or maybe he could because there’s no conflict anyway?)
If not then maybe Ichimatsu’s VA [Fukuyama Jun] will work too because they’re both really bored and loves cats!!! l o l
