If I live to see the seven wonders I’ll make a path to the rainbow’s end I’ll never live to match the beauty again The rainbow’s end
I needed to draw this just before bed after Fleetwood Mac came on ok. I feel like Ricardo has so many odd old things from Earth Lob would eventually find some funny typical tourist trinkets of his and pretend he’s actually been there until he actually gets to go for real.
im sad because i love svt but i dont like this album :( i only like 2 songs on it and i want to like the rest but i just dont? aah
Listen man, it’s okay not to like the music your faves put out. It happens and it’s not something to be ashamed of. I certainly have before. We all have our own particular tastes. So don’t feel bad, alright?
Here we go, for the next five days we’ll be spotlighting the very very sweet @lilyvandersteen
DAY 1: Meet the
Well, it all started with Kurt, from the very first
episode of Glee. They were bullying Kurt, but instead of cowering and crying,
he’d keep his spine straight and his chin up and he’d rip his bullies apart
with a few well-chosen words. He had courage in spades long before he met
And then he sang, and my mouth fell open. And then
he snarked some more, and then he developed a crush on Finn and showed a more
vulnerable side, and that was it, he was my favourite. Just like that.
Fast forward now to Grilled Cheesus, and Kurt
singing I Wanna Hold Your Hand. That
was my Blackbird moment about Kurt. I liked him, before, but that song cemented
in my heart that Kurt was one of my favourite fictional characters EVER.
It broke my heart that Kurt was so lonely, so I was
overjoyed when the staircase scene happened. And then the Teenage Dream serenade. I saw Kurt’s eyes shine, and I saw him
smile more widely and genuinely than I’d ever seen him smile before, and that’s
it, Blaine had won me over too.
Blaine being so oblivious was frustrating, and
Blaine serenading Jeremiah made me eye-roll so hard, as did the whole Blainchel
affair. I hated that Kurt made such biphobic remarks, but I understood where it
came from. Rachel had a habit of taking everything Kurt cared about from him.
And then they finally got together, and I was
overjoyed. When Kurt was elected Prom Queen, and Blaine asked him to dance,
that was my Blackbird moment about Blaine. You could plainly see that Blaine
was terrified, having been beaten up before at a school dance. But he swallowed
and held out his hand and smiled, and asked Kurt ever so sweetly if he could
have this dance, and Kurt was so relieved. That was the moment I fell head over
heels for Blaine as well, and I shipped Klaine with all my heart. And I never
stopped shipping them. I knew they were the real deal.
Canon Glee proved frustrating, though, keeping them
apart, even after that huge over-the-top proposal. Even making Blaine date
Karofsky, ugh. And Kurt a senior citizen, what was THAT all about? Couldn’t
they at least have found Kurt a better midgame?
So naturally, I started making up my own version of
events. Still Kurt and Blaine. Still each other’s soulmates and happily ever
after in every lifetime and in every verse I wrote. But way more satisfying
than what happened on canon Glee.
What’s in a typical lilyvandersteen story?
I use way too many adjectives and adverbs. I try to
weed them out when I revise chapters, but there are still too many. And I have
never used “Oh my Gaga”, but to my shame, I have to admit I’ve made Kurt say
“Oh, for the love of Gaga” more than once. I’ll try not to do that anymore,
Another thing about my stories (well, the
multichapters, at any rate) is that I write from both points of view. One
chapter will be from Kurt’s point of view and then the next will be Blaine’s.
Also, I love to write fantasy stories, with fairy
tale elements and supernatural creatures and challenges to complete. Often, I
use stories within stories. And soulmate fics. I love writing soulmate fics. I
have a soft spot for Kiddie Klaine too. And I love including Anderbros
interaction. Cooper is such a delightful character to write.
I’m not much of a smut writer nor an angst writer,
but fluff is my domain. Meet-cutes and Eskimo kisses and cuddles and snuggles
aplenty. My mission in life is to make you coo and smile :)
What kind of stories do you write?
I write mostly fluff (see above). I’ve never yet written Klaine with
babies or pets of their own, but domestic bliss, check. Serenades, check. First
dates, check. Comfort fic, check. What’s too fluffy? Oh, I really couldn’t say.
Maybe ask my readers? I’m sure my cotton candy fluff gives them diabetes more
often than not…
And what makes me happy in fluff is seeing Klaine really connecting and
making each other happy and content.
I write angst occasionally, yes, to get the story going or to keep it
going. I don’t think I’ve ever written about break-ups or infidelity, that’s
not my thing. But I’ve written about canon character deaths and illnesses and
gay bashings. I’ve written about Klaine being kept apart by circumstances. I’ve
written about misunderstandings that break their hearts. I’ve even written
about suicide notes (not Klaine) and domestic violence (also not Klaine) and
depression (also not Klaine).
Too angsty to write? I’m not sure I could ever write about Klaine losing
(one of their) children. Or about one of them dying and the other being
I write smut occasionally if the story asks for it. Those passages are
never long and never detailed. I find writing smut terrifying. I love to read
it, though, and sexy aspects that never fail to excite me are neck kisses and
I don’t think I’ve ever written anything outside my usual wheelhouse – I
don’t often fill prompts. Whenever I try to write a story based on a prompt
that’s not really my thing, the words refuse to flow. I’m afraid I can only
write what I like to read myself.
All my stories are AU, though the Kiddie Klaine fics might be canon J
What do you like about your writing? Why would you read your fic? What
characters, strengths, fun, emotion would draw you to it?
Ha! I write what I want to read: meet-cutes, fluffy Klaine, soulmate
Klaine, fairytale/fantasy Klaine. I love including fun OCs, and I love making
Tina extra tenacious and fangirlish around Blaine, Rachel extra divaish and
blunt, Cooper extra self-centered and silly, and Santana extra snarky and
outrageous. And of course I always end fics with a satisfying happy ending.
That’s an absolute must for me :)
Look, I am a hardcore Carat as well but like isn't it too far calling Chainsmokers "untalented ugly white boys" just because people say the song reminds them of them. Like even I can hear some parts that sounds like Closer. Like I like the song and all but damn dude are you seriously that deep into your world that Seventeen is the BEST and no one can top them? I am a carat JUST LIKE YOU. I love these boys but attacking other people because you don't agree with them will only hurt the boys more.
ANYWAYS,the chainsmokers are dead in a ditch buy Don’t Wanna Cry on iTunes
I know some people liked this song and some didn’t, but I want to remember my queens like this. The crowd singing loudly to their heart’s content and the girls with beautiful smiles on their faces. We love you. Thank you Sistar.
blackpink better come back hard as hell next month. i feel like their other songs were just…practice? they felt too safe. i want them to really play with rosé and jennie’s vocals. i want lisa to have more than 6.3 seconds on a song. i want to hear jisoo’s vocal improvements even just a little. i want complex dances bc we all know they can fucking handle it with the way their breathing has improved during their live sets recently.
Do u know what's freaking fantastic?? Joshua HAVING SCREEN TIME YES BOI I'M LIVING!! HE'S FINALLY BEING TREATED LIKE THE TRUE VISUAL HE IS I'M SCREAMING okay but comparing to adore u his amount of screen time and appreciation is and astounding. I just :'), I love my man. - jisoostananon ps when I heard the trailer I was low key skeptical about whether I was gonna like the song but BOUIIII I should never have doubted the choreo was phenomenal and the vocals were 10/10 O man I love svt.
MAN SHUA KILLED IT LIKE HIS HIGH NOTES AND HIS ACTING HAS ME DEAD 💀 But yeah I totally agree when I heard the album teaser was like eh okay, but now I am jamming to every single song man I love this album
I feel like this song has become a meme weirdly specific to me.
It’s gonna take a lot to take me away from you
There’s nothing that a hundred men or more could ever do
I bless the rains down in Africa
Gonna take some time to do the things we never had
The wild dogs cry out in the night
As they grow restless, longing for some solitary company
I know that I must do what’s right
As sure as Kilimanjaro rises like Olympus above the Serengeti
I seek to cure what’s deep inside, frightened of this thing that I’ve become
It’s gonna take a lot to drag me away from you
There’s nothing that a hundred men or more could ever do
Ah dude you like johnathan young? I love him! I really enjoy his cover of dark horse since it's so good and fits one of my ocs really well! He'd make such a good Disney villain, his song would be the best in any movie~ace
I love Jonathan Young so much. His voice, especially the growl is so well done. I like his Bang Bang song and also Friends on the Other Side covers. Also his softer songs like “All I Ask”
