I'm just as desperate for them as you are

@markiplier

Please get Mark to see this.

I’m well aware that you know it’s important to credit creators. This goes for photoshop and art alike (etc) . I really hope you saw that my thing with Tom Brady and Tyler was used and not credited (as far as I know, please correct me if it was). I just want to reiterate something.

In my book, it is never okay to use someone’s content without direct permission from them. It is okay, however, if this content includes the person using it and is credited properly. Example: Markiplier fanart being used by Mark and Mark only, so long as it’s credited.

I saw Tyler defend someone who stole my art, saying they only wanted to share it. This is wrong. You need direct permission from an artist to use it.

Please, advocate something like this in the community, and please please please, at least give me credit. I am mad by principle. You cannot excuse theft in anyway. 

Edit: I’m not mad per say. I’m dissapointed. I understand Mark has good intentions and I understand he likely forgot. Just principle here.

edit 2: For those who aren’t aware, mark has seen this! just leaving it up. :P

Hiya, this is really random and sort of a stupid question but do you have any tips when it comes to drawing the achievement hunter crew? I find the characterization of them to be really difficult, and figuring out how to make them all look like themselves seems to come as a challenge to me so I was wondering if you had any tips?? If not that's fine I'm just in desperate need of help ...

I’m probably not the best person to ask because I have a style and I draw them in that style?? However I’mma try:

I think the best tip you’re gonna get is just study them and their faces? Point out their main characteristics that make them look like them
Like when in doubt, reference a photo of them. 

A few examples I just scrapped together

Here we have Mr Haywood. Known for expressive brows and floofy hair! So add those two things in. Add in a scruff, some wide eyes and bang you got yourself a handsome man

Another Example

The Boss, Moustache-less Edition. So we all know Geoff was known for that magnificent stache. Alas he shaved it off two years ago but here’s how we can identify him. Geoff has a Overwatches Soldier76 looking hair going on where the fringe is smol. Some tired eyes and ofc the tattoos. Normally got a scruff but at varying lengths. 

Last example, a lad this time

Just look at his faceshape, much longer than Haywoods and Ramsey’s. Gavins main characteristic is probably that nose. But even without it you got that Duckbutt hairstyle and lanky look. He’s beautiful boi.


But yeah, reference them. Everyone has a characteristic that makes them stand out and RT is full of diverse and unique looking people.

How many of us have actually been here relationship wise? Loving/caring for someone who faces the impossible odds, seeing their desperation, their hopelessness, their loneliness. They painfully scream outloud that they have/feel nothing when you are standing right there with them, holding their hand, trying to re-assure that they are not alone.

Jenn Engels (OB writer) got that.

Helen Shaver (OB director) got that.

Evelyne and Tatiana got that.

Is it some kind of secret code? Everyone else’s like “hey, my tumblr friend” and I’m here like a freaking potatoe? I just follow random people and hope that one day I’ll talk to them??? I mean, I’ve tried that in a real life once and it didn’t end up well so… 

Seriously, anyone?

Hi! I'm kind of new to Drarry but I already realized that I really like stories where Harry is pining over Draco, desperately in love with him but at the same time he's still strong Harry we all like. A bit of angst, hurt/comfort is very welcome too. Happy ending is a must :) So if you have something like this in mind, I'll be very grateful if you share. Thank you!

I loooove pining, so this was a lot of fun to do! I hope you like them! Also, since you’re kind of new to Drarry, I just want to add that all the authors on this list are A++. And reading more of their fics would be a VERY good idea.

Drarry + pining!Harry fic recs

Azoth by zeitgeistic (88k)
Now that Harry is back at Hogwarts with Hermione for 8th year, he realises that something’s missing from his life, and it either has to do with Ron, his boggart, Snape, or Malfoy. Furthermore, what, exactly, does it mean when one’s life is defined by the desire to simultaneously impress and annoy a portrait? Harry has no idea; he’s too busy trying not to be in love with Malfoy to care.
(So much pining, it’s amazing. Harry and Draco do their masters project together, they grow very close, there’s pining and longing and it hurtssss.)

Turn by Sara’s Girl (306k)
One good turn always deserves another. Apparently.
(This is the mother of all pining!Harry fics and exactly what you’ll want. He’s so desperately in love with Draco, he’s oh-so-strong, and I’m SO proud of him and the way he fights for his own happiness in this fic. Beautiful, beautiful thing.)

In Pieces by dysonrules (85k)
Harry returns to Hogwarts as the new DADA instructor, only to find his teaching efforts thwarted by a very familiar ghost.
(You have no idea how much I’ve cried over this one. It takes pining to a whole new level of suffering and I am so there for all of it. And yes, happy ending~)

A Piercing Comfort by talithan (44k)
When Harry Potter hits the lowest point of his life so far, it is not his friends who keep him honest. With Draco Malfoy’s patience and guidance, Harry learns to stand on his own. The thing is, after the fact—he’s no longer sure he wants to.
(MY FEELS, THERE ARE TOO MANY OF THEM. The focus is on Harry and his dealing with everything post-war. Will satisfy any hurt/comfort craving.)

Reparations by Sara’s Girl (87k)
Harry is about to discover that the steepest learning curve comes after Healer training, and that second chances can be found in unexpected places.
(This fic is so incredibly well-written, characterizations so on point, and Harry falls so hard for Draco. The pining, the slow burn, the sexual tension. Agh!)

Running on Air by eleventy7 (74k)
Draco Malfoy has been missing for three years. Harry is assigned the cold case and finds himself slowly falling in love with the memories he collects.
(I’m forever crying over this one. Gorgeous writing, so beautifully written, every single sentence is exquisite. It’s that melancholic kind of angst. Love it.) 

Stately Homes of Wiltshire by waspabi (57k)
Malfoy Manor has mould, dry rot and an infestation of unusually historical poltergeists. Harry Potter is on the case.
(One of the funniest fics I know, this author is hilarious. The pining is lovely, the characterization of Draco is a favorite of mine, and everything is awesome.)

The Boy Who Only Lived Twice by lettered (54k)
Harry Potter is an Unspeakable. Draco Malfoy is the wizard who shagged him. Adventure! Intrigue! Secret identities, celebrities, spies! It’s all right here, folks.
(This is one of the PUREST love stories ever, I have so many feels, it is fucking beautiful and it has ruined my life in the best way. Angsty pining galore!)

A Convenient Impracticality by firethesound (38k)
Somehow Harry ends up agreeing to a fake relationship with his ex-nemesis-turned-friendly-acquaintance-with-benefits, except for some reason it involves an awful lot of actual dating and, sadly, not much sex. Confused? Harry is too, but when has anything with Draco Malfoy ever been as straightforward as it seems?
(Delicious pining all over the place and the chemistry between Harry and Draco is off the charts. They’re both idiots, it’s hilarious, and the angst hurts me.)

anonymous asked:

the really tiny text next to the actual text doesn't actually mean anything (if you're talking about what i think you are)!! it's just the same words written in hiragana (one of the two phonetic alphabets in Japanese) so that people know how they're read/so they can recognize the kanji better

right! that’s what it’s called
and i was pretty sure they had different meanings? for like, subtext, to add some extra oomph. like sometimes she’ll just put. different words there. to fuck with readers & make translators suffer & for other similar “let’s make things as confusing as possible” reasons

EW

i think it’s really funny how @Onision calls out idubbbz for ridiculous reasons while also being problematic as fuck. Every example @Onision used for idubbbz being “racist” was actually Ian calling someone else out for being racist and using that slur, like in the Keemstar and Tana Mongeau Content Cops. @Onision is using clips out of context to try and RUIN someone else’s career. How is that acceptable? There are tons of examples of Onision being misogynistic, homophobic, transphobic, and ableist but of course he’s going to pretend none of that exists. Well, it does, and here’s the proof. Even if one person sees this, it will have been worth it.

Also I think it’s funny how’s he’s begging for a Content Cop because he knows his channels are dying and the Content Cop would give him exposure. Ian hasn’t- and probably still doesn’t- give a shit about Onision or his shitty content. Onision’s not going to get a Content Cop(even though I want one DESPERATELY) because it would just give Onision the attention he so desperately craves.

(and for him to say that filthy frank/george copied him is RIDICULOUS, for obvious reasons)

Anyways, here’s the evidence against Onision(a lot of credit to @shameshack because that’s where I got most of this- they’re amazing and you should check them out)

According to Onision, people aren’t allowed to speak their minds- unless he’s the one doing it. Fuck you @onision. Fuck. You.

  • sometimes when he’s desperate he just plucks you up from whatever mc’s doing and just falls on the bed because he’s a Brat and demands attention and affection immediately
  • on occasion mc tries to throw sugar stars into nobu’s mouth when she’s bored and nobu is all for it but he’s really??? good at it? 
  • obviously everyone and their mom knew this but he loves it when your fingers are in his hair like yes let him lay on your lap and he can just puppy eyes you while you run your fingers through his soft ass hair 
  • who could say no to him too he could get away with murder if he confessed it with those puppy eyes
  • when he comes home from work sometimes he just walks up to mc and like. holds them by the cheeks. no context. just holds their face. looks into their eyes lovingly. 
  • what he’s really thinking as he does this
  • he blushes whenever mc unexpectedly kisses him like one day she just passes him and tiptoes to give him a lil kiss he just dies and has to hold it in because i’m oda nobunaga and i’m a badass
  • because he is high maintenance he only has fluffy blankets in his house. and when mc comes over he likes it when she sits between his legs with a blanket over them so he can just wrap his arms around her and be all fluffy
  • sometimes he idly kisses mc’s neck when this happens and he just rests his head on her shoulder and smiles
  • listen if u thought nobunaga needed validation enough back then u haven’t seen shit now because now they have 39 more ways of communicating so he’s gonna be saying shit like “you’re mine” over text and every social media caption ever 
  • he tries to jokingly make mc swear her allegiance to him again and she punches him in the shoulder but does it anyways because he makes the puppy face
  • he gives the greatest hugs from behind because it’s soft and kinda slow and he gives a light squeeze and kisses mc’s hair and is just like really softly “hi” 
  • nobu is the big spoon obvi ous l y but sometimes he falls asleep and mc is the big spoon and just latches onto him 
  • jokes on her he will never admit he wants to be the little spoon so he just pretends to be asleep 
  • they!!! hold hands!! always. even when he drives he has one hand holding mc’s and sometimes he holds it up and kisses her hand while driving and it’s really cute
  • cuddling in bed is always cute because he always nuzzles his face into mc’s hair or neck or collarbone and mc is kind of surprised this is the same man that got dragged out of a room kicking and yelling once on national tv
  • always brushes hair out of mc’s face absentmindedly or fixes her clothes when he talks to her before leaving just because it’s cute and that’s his queen 
  • he deserves so much love and cuddles please give it to this man

cryrael  asked:

Hey I just wanted to drop by and say that I'm absolutely in love with your Generation: Miracle series and I desperately need more stories from that universe! So could you maybe write something with Akashi (cause I love him sm) and the gang going to MM Land like they did in Love Doesn't Discriminate, maybe as some kind of relationship-anniversary group thing to which Furihata persuades Akashi and he's dragged on a rollercoaster and Akashi actually gets sick on it and Furi just cant believe it

Akashi steps off the roller coaster and tries to be subtle about the deep breaths he is taking and his efforts to remain calm and focused.

“That was fun!” Furihata says exuberantly. “We should go on another—Akashi? Are you OK?”

He doesn’t close his eyes, because that would reveal that he is struggling, and it is important not to reveal his struggling. He fixates on Furihata’s voice like a point of harbor—he can concentrate on the sound and remain grounded. He smiles and says, “Yes, I am fine. Which one would you like to go on next?”

“Are you sick?” Furihata asks incredulously.

A quick glance verifies that there are humans who are also reacting slightly to the roller coaster and that seems like a reasonable explanation so he says, “Yes, just a tad. I will compose myself soon.”

But this explanation only causes Furihata to withdraw. Akashi can see him pull back and then set his jaw in a determined way. “No, you’re not. You look like you did when you came back from—from that place.”

Occasionally even he forgets that Furihata was there and that he knows. Akashi swallows because it is very, very hard for him to admit this out loud but Furihata is looking at him with concern and a great deal of willpower and Akashi knows he’s not going to drop this. “I apologize, Furi,” Akashi says slowly. “I was not—prepared. I do not particularly enjoy being strapped in that tight and it reminded me slightly of the simulators Teiko had for—training. I will be better prepared mentally in the future, so I imagine this will not be a problem again.”

This explanation only seems to make things worse. Furihata looks like someone just stabbed him and Akashi doesn’t know where he went wrong and what he can do to get him to stop looking like that. “Akashi—you don’t—I don’t want to go on them if it’s going to be painful for you! You don’t need to get used to it! It won’t be fun if it’s torturing you.”

“It will be fine,” Akashi insists. Because Furihata clearly had fun on these and Furihata deserves to have a boyfriend who can go on a roller coaster with him and Akashi will be damned if he can’t be that person. “I apologize for concerning you, it will not be a problem—”

“Because we’re not going on them again!” Furihata bursts out. “Akashi, you don’t always have to be the perfect boyfriend, OK? I want to be a considerate boyfriend to you too, and I want us both to have fun! It can’t just be me.” He cups Akashi’s face, and the gentle touch is a reminder of everything that is good in this world and Akashi relaxes somewhat.

At all things, he wants to win, and he really wants to win at being a good boyfriend. But looking at it from Furihata’s point of view, he can understand why perhaps his insistence on this matter might do more harm than good. Furihata is clearly not going to enjoy the roller coasters anymore, and even though Akashi hates that he did that, he wants to respect Furihata’s feelings on the matter.

“I just wanted you to have a good anniversary,” Akashi says quietly. “Of our first date.”

Furihata nods, like maybe he understands that it is very hard for Akashi not to conquer every weakness, and he steps in close in a comforting sort of way. “You know, on our first date we didn’t really go on any roller coasters. We just made out a lot behind the rides.”

Akashi follows this train of thought and smiles slowly. “Yes, that’s right. We never did make it to the roller coasters.”

“So, a really good anniversary celebration of our first date would just be a lot of making out, yeah?”

“Yes, Furi, what a wonderful suggestion, I completely agree.”



A/N: ahahaherrr, this was YET ANOTHER “you asked for fluff and I gave you angst,” SORRY! Sorry, friend!! I was stalled on this prompt for a while because I don’t really headcanon Akashi as someone (in D: M, anyway) who would get sick on roller coasters, so then I finally came up with this as a logical compromise and RAN with it. Sorry for the unexpected angst and thank you for the prompt!

inukag-4ever  asked:

I would LOVE to know what you think are the best, high quality, in-character, well-written fics out there. Other than LMAL and Feniknussen (too lazy to look up how to spell that author). I'm in desperate need of something incredible to read!!

Girl, I know that feel! Sometimes you just need a really good fic to read.

I’m happy to tell you about my go-to fics, but I get the feeling you’ve probably read (or heard of) most of them already. ^^; Hopefully there’ll be one or two in here that are new to you. (Also, please note that my InuKag bias is really obvious with this list, because they’re all InuKag-oriented.) 

  • Surprising absolutely no one, I must lead off with Sachi by Quillwing717. It’s still the best fanfic I’ve ever read. The quality of the writing is A++, the characterization is on point, and the slow burn is fucking phenomenal. Waiting on a Wish is also amazing, and I reread that one pretty frequently. She’s also written a one-shot called Holding Them that is super sweet and lovely. 
  • Nice Things by Bread Head is a oneshot I recently found that blew me away. Inuyasha and Kagome are very, very in-character, and the whole piece is bittersweet and adorable. (The author also has a multi-chapter fic, In the Shade of the Sacred Tree, that you might want to check out; the writing is excellent, but I’ll admit that I bailed on it because it made me too sad. But if you’re in the mood for sad, that should really hit the spot.) 
  • Basically anything written by Reinamy will be wonderful, but I particularly love Mistletoe Tales and Speed Dating for Dummies. This author’s writing style is awesome—the characters just come alive. 
  • The Half Breed’s Wife by Gypsyn is basically everything I ever want in a fic. Her other stuff is great too, though. I particularly enjoy Shattered and Remade for its imagery and symbolism; and A Story for Shippo is hella cute and guaranteed to make you smile.
  • I don’t know how she did it, but I Hear Your Silence by KeiChanz is pretty much InuKag perfection. Like I don’t even know what else to say about it. A+ fluff, to die for, 10/10 will absolutely read again. 
  • The writer bluepianos has some great Inuyasha fics—refreshingly well-written and well-characterized—and I especially enjoyed the one titled ふたりごと.    
  • I just recently read I Have a Confession to Make by kimiko888 and I love it. Humor can be hard to write well, but this author totally nails it. Not to mention the fact that it’s chalk-full of InuKag cute. The chapters are stand-alone pieces, and some are more in-character than others; overall, though, I think it’s a really good collection.
  • Folktale by HoneyBee31. Like, honestly? This fic does so many things really, really well. Pacing, world-building, characterization, romantic development… it’s a little gem of a fic that I reread a lot. 
  • Elemental: A Feudal Soap Opera by Xi Hou Jun is just quality writing. As the title suggests, it’s full of that good, good drama. The characterization is kinda up for debate, depending on how you interpret the characters; personally I think the characterization is good, particularly Inuyasha’s perspective.  
  • You’ve probably seen me recommend this fic before, but I have to include Therapeutic by everstar. It’s a perfect little snapshot of InuKag. Grade-A characterization, flawless writing, 10/10, wish there was a sequel. I also love this author’s (sadly unfinished) multi-chapter fic, Pieces of Me
  • Remember when I said that humor can be hard to write well? Shikigami by Elvirus knocks it outta the park. I swear, this fic reads like canon. It could be an episode from the anime or a chapter from the manga. 
  • The Hunt for the Perfect Man by CharmedReality is an excellent, funny, light-hearted read.  
  • I’m 100% sure most everyone in the fandom has heard of, if not already read, the following fic, but I’ve gotta include it in any list of well-written, well-characterized fics. Behind the Silk Screen by eien-no-basho is a top tier fic, ain’t no mistake. The amount of detail and historical research is wonderful, and the story itself is a joy to read. 
  • Again, I feel like I’m preaching to the choir with this rec, but I gotta, I just gotta: Phony Digits by our very own StoatsandWeasels is 100% worth the read. She nails Kagome’s character, and I love how she writes Sango. 

Okay, I think I’d better stop before I bury you alive. I’m sorry if these are all fics you’ve already read—if so, maybe a couple of them are due for a reread? XD

Happy reading! 

Rebelcaptain fic: all the rumours say

For @rebelcaptainprompts #8: agony, fingers and shiver 


   Sometimes, she had to stop and wonder briefly about how the hell she had ended up here.  

   Somehow, Jyn Erso had gotten through the initial bloodshed and trauma of being dragged bloodied and broken, but ultimately alive, off Scarif. She had worked her way through the appropriate length of time it had taken for the screaming night terrors to work their way down to just the occasional nightmare. She’d been a shell of herself for so long that she’d even had to relearn who she was without aliases to hide behind. But she’d had Cassian at her side. Somehow, that had made it ok.

   She’d told herself that she’d stayed with the rebellion because she believed in the cause. But really, she had just believed in him.

   (“Are – are we ever going to talk about this?” he had gasped once, face buried in her shoulder as she was pressed against the bare wall of his room. Their hands had fumbled, everything new and awkward and thrilling and Jyn had desperately kissed away the answer.

   Someday, she had thought.

   I promise, someday).

[ Considering there’s a lack of MarAce on my blog lately due to the break of my dear other half Marco, I thought of taking random writing prompts for that ship~!

So just send me an ask with a prompt! NSFW is okay too. Just keep in mind that I might not do all, depending on personal preferences. ]

anonymous asked:

Why are you acting like you're better than new nuest fans ?? Just bc you've liked them longer doesn't make you better lmao TBH all old nuest fans act like you saying new fans should behave a certain way and "respect" older fans get over yourself

LMAO oh honey, honey. 

First of all, old fans have been nothing but welcoming to the new fans, we’ve been begging people to bias NU’EST for years and we were so desperate in 2016 to even get them nominated on The Show for Canvas era promotions. We don’t think we’re better than you, and it’s only been newer fans who refuse to admit they spread misinformation who claim there is some hierarchy going on within the LOVE fandom. Your true colors show when you decide to spit in the faces of people who were here before you who just want to make sure you have the correct information. 

Second, yes, you should respect us if you expect us to respect you in return. We were there when people were calling them nugus and telling us they were just gonna disband. When we had only a handful of fansites, when our fandom was so small the boys knew us by NAME. They remembered us and some of us had actual, real life conversations with them. Ren has even seen my fanart and replied on it, I have friends who would message him privately on instagram and he would talk them through their problems. And this intimate relationship the fans had with those boys goes beyond that, even our inter-fandom relationships were very intimate because we all knew each other. There wasn’t a name in this fandom that the rest of us didn’t recognize. We were a small fandom and therefore we had intimate relationships with one another, inter-fandom and between the fandom and the boys. We simply have very personal experiences with them so forgive us for taking the spread of misinformation so personally, because we do have the kind of relationship with those 5 boys that most fandoms will never have with their own faves. 

And just because we have that kind of relationship and experiences with those boys doesn’t make us better fans, it just means we have a different kind of relationship and experience than the newer fans will have. We want to help guide you and show you around but when you get defensive every time we try to correct you or explain something to you it makes it hard for us to want anything to do with you. We’ve had our fandom ripped apart by delulu’s with massive followings before, so forgive us if we’re trying to prevent similar situations from happening.

anonymous asked:

so i've been reading all of your outlander meta lately and i love it so much, it really adds a new dimension. obviously this is a big request but since outlander (the first book) was from clare's perspective, do you think there are some passages before jaime marries her which are indicative of his interest towards her? he always seemed subdued to me but i'm not a careful reader

Thanks Anon. I’m thrilled you’re enjoying my old meta posts. I desperately want to write more but they take so long, I just don’t have the time to do as many of them as I did when I first started posting here on Tumblr.

I think there are a LOT of passages from the first book that show evidence of Jamie’s interest in Claire, even though they’re written from Claire’s perspective. One pretty good indicator is when Claire finds a way to explain his behavior as being due to something else––as evidence that he’s interested in Laoghaire or evidence that he sees her (Claire) as a friend, etc. Claire is heavily into denial at that point of the story, still intent of finding a way back to Frank and considering herself still very married to him. Acknowledging Jamie’s interest could be the first step to acknowledging her own interest so she tends to just shut both down at the source. Jamie also tends to downplay his obvious interest and turns a lot of his remarks towards jokes and general friendliness so he doesn’t scare Claire off. 

Luckily, the adaptation absolutely nailed conveying Jamie’s interest in Claire in most of these scenes so not only are you getting a few passages from Claire and Jamie’s greatest hits, there are a few gifs to go along with them.
