Have you guys read Something in the Night by @konekat? Well, I thought I’d torture myself some more with another ongoing thing, but the hell, it turned out to be so captivating!! *w* If you haven’t read it, I don’t know what the heck you’re waiting for. 

It’s amazing though, in the Miraculous Ladybug fandom I found out such incredible writers that are more talented than a lot of people who’ve actually been published. And I’m eternally grateful to the fact that these Incredible WritersTM put so much effort into their stories, that they put them up for nerds like me to read and that they inspire me this much.  

Really, honestly, personally to @konekat, thank you for writing. This fanart is for you, hope you like it. <3

Chamroeun Phan grew up in St. Paul, Minnesota, and, by all measures, isn’t a menacing guy. At 34, he’s slight of build, a brown-skinned Cambodian-American who wears a long black ponytail, rocks Milwaukee Brewers baseball caps, and has an affinity for flyfishing in the summer. 

The one big blemish on Phan’s record is the night in 2009, when he broke three windows at a bar that he often went to play poker with his then-fiancé and six older brothers and sisters. Even the bar’s owner said that he was a “great person” but had “a little too much to drink.” Still, Phan was charged with felony first-degree damage. He spent 40 days in jail, and then moved on.

But, seven years later on Aug. 28, 2016, Phan was detained by Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials. Read more. (3/19/2017 12:30 PM)

Playlist Picks: Nightwish’s “Nemo” was the first song I ever heard from them, and their album “Once” will always be one of my favorites, though all their recent and past albums are also pretty damn strong. For something going in a completely different direction, I also really loved hearing The Offspring’s “Can’t Repeat” this morning as well.

Alright! Good morning to everyone! Now, time to make a protein shake, get a warm beverage, and catch up with all my lovelies on Tumblr. Oh, and like work–or something.

it’s never fun when my boss messages me “hey I need to ask a HUGE favor”

I’ve been at work since 12:30pm yesterday and now I’m here until 3pm. 😩

heikotheimperial  asked:

1, 2 ,3, 7, 12, 15, 30 yes these are mostly at random shut up

01. What does your character’s name mean? Did you pick it for the symbolism, or did you just like the way it sounded?

A. I go by the name Snake in pretty much every game/community I am apart of. I just added Stone to it, to make it sound Nordic.

02. What is one of your character’s biggest insecurities? Are they able to hide it easily or can others easily exploit this weakness?

A. His inability to grow a proper beard. He’s unsure as to why he can’t grow a full beard, and he feels like less of a man/nord since both his father and grandfather had full beards. He keeps this insecurity well hidden.

03. What would be their favorite physical trait about themselves?

A. His smile.

07. Is there a catchphrase or sound that they tend to make a lot (likely without being aware of it)?

A. A low defeated sigh followed by a groan.

12. Is there some particular talent, skill, or attribute that they simply could not give up?

A. Playing his lute, music helps him relax.

15. Is there a certain person in this world that they cannot stand? The very mention of this person’s name makes them tremble with anger or fear.

A.  Blushes-In-Shadows, after 3 attempts on his life (all the while flirting with him during attempts to kill him) has left a less than savory view on the lizard.

30. When it comes to the arts (music, film, theater, etc), what does your character like?

A. Music, he loves a good drinking song or a soothing melody.
