COME ONE, COME ALL!

However. There’s one thing that Mel always wants more of. What started it all. What started her journey into being one of the main admins on this blog. What pulled her to the smutty side (at least of writing).

And with that, I would like to announce that

Candyland

Will be getting 5 new chapters! I had marked it as complete when I hadn’t finished the board. I have all new ideas, and I can’t wait to get them out to you guys.

That being said, the Trickster is back<3

are you still planning to finish LU before your bday??? also on that note HAPPY EARLY BIRTHDAY!! I'm sorry to hear about the funeral my prayers are with all of you!

Thank you! :D

Unfortunately, I won’t be able to make my deadline. Chapter 29 has a good 3000 words left in it and the funeral stuff put me behind. But at least I get to rest my hands!

Duo, from Going the Distance. I commissioned the amazingly talented @hasuyawwn to make this THREE YEARS AGO. 

That’s how long Going the Distance has been in progress. Today, however, I’m laying it to rest. No, it has not been finished, but I have marked it as complete and I’ve added a final few words on ff.net and AO3 that wraps things up, at least for me.

I want to thank anyone and everyone who followed that fic over THE YEARS and apologize for not finishing it. But it’s literally impossible for me to reconcile the NOW with the THEN as I had left things in Chapter 27 last year.

having self-discipline while studying can be immensely helpful, and it’ll help you get over procrastination and motivation slumps. here are some tips for developing more self-discipline!
ahhh this post was kinda hard to write because i’m still trying to build up my own self-discipline! hopefully, some of this will help you guys out!

remove all temptations

yes, it’s so so tempting to check tumblr and youtube and twitter and instagram and whatnot while studying. a simple way to fix that is to log off all of your social media accounts, put your phone away and out of your sight while studying, and setting up a website blocker if you need to. chrome has quite a lot of extensions regarding website blockers, so try searching for one that you like.

be ready to study

get all of your materials out, fill up a bottle of water, make yourself a study snack if you want to, make sure your work space is clean and ready to go, etc. it can be disruptive to your own work flow if you suddenly find that you desperately need something halfway across your house during your study session.

don’t wait for “the perfect moment”

waiting for “the right time” and “the perfect moment” can be incredibly detrimental to your own discipline. it’s nice to spend a lot of time digging through a motivation tag and you feel very light and happy to start working. however, that’s not helpful if you’ve spent too much time in that and not enough time to get your own work done. get a start on your own work and try to finish it efficiently so you can get back to whatever you were doing before :-)

don’t make excuses

this is kinda like the one before it, but stop making excuses to yourself unless they’re genuine. i know that other things in your life may come first, and that’s completely fine! just remember to be honest with yourself and stop making up flimsy excuses to push off something that you don’t want to do.

schedule things.

good time management = good self-discipline :)
keep track of all the tasks that you need to do that day, and try to finish all of them in the same day as well. don’t overload your schedule though; be realistic in your planning. you don’t have to cover 15 chapters in one day!!

start whatever you need to do at that time

by pushing it off, you’re inviting yourself into the dreaded loop of procrastination.
if you’ve already fallen into procrastination, force yourself to start the task for at least 10 minutes. after 10 minutes, check to see if you’ve gotten into a nice and steady work flow or if you’re still just worn-out and tired and don’t want to do it at all. if it’s the first one, smile and continue on! you’ve succeeded! if it’s the second one, maybe it’s because you’re too tired and worn out. take a 5 minute break and then try again.

finish what you start

it’s fairly simple: try to finish whatever you start that day. don’t push it off or wait til the next day to finish it.

make up your own deadline

by establishing your own deadline, you set yourself a time frame to finish something in. this pushes you to actually do the work in that amount of time.
also, it’s really helpful especially when working on projects. you can split up the task into separate chunks and make deadlines for each “chunk.” it makes it a lot easier to handle too!

take advantage of mornings

i absolutely detest mornings, but waking up early can be a huge advantage. by waking up early, you’re strengthening your own self-discipline as well as gaining a large amount of time to study and work! besides, it feels great to have a whole night to yourself if you finish all of your tasks in the morning!!

remember to forgive yourself and remember to take breaks!

not everyone can be hyper productive forever. people have their ups and downs, and you’re no exception. don’t beat yourself up over not finishing x amount of tasks that day or for having too many long breaks or whatever. it’s good to shake yourself back into shape, but please please don’t go overboard and despair about your failures. it’s so easy to guilt yourself and spiral away from your built-up discipline ;; the longer you’re off, the harder it is to get back up and keep going.
the key thing is: you are trying and your efforts are validated and you have made some progress with your self-discipline and studying. forgive yourself and move on.

remember: don’t get discouraged
the longest journey starts with a single step (◕ᴗ◕✿)

hope this helped and good luck! if you’d like to request a post, go here and if you’d like to see more helpful posts, go here!! thanks :)

Noragami on Unexpected Hiatus

Bad news, folks.

This month’s Gekkan Shounen Magazine came with a note “Due to unforseen circumstances, the scheduled publication of Chapter 75 of ‘Noragami’ will not appear in this issue”.

No return date was given, meaning it could possibly be off next month as well.  The break for chapter 75 at least hopefully shouldn’t be too long as chapter 75 is needed to finish off volume 19.

Chapter 02:

  • - Next

- Prologue

- AU blog

___

Oh look, a new scene with Alphys and amalgamates! :D X3 Taa-da-da.

If some of you had already guessed your own suspicion in the previous update or earlier, then congrats! :) You may understand now why Alphys tried her best to explain this to Sans. Oh boy I love how she felt so frustrated, sometimes angry, concerned or scared every time I drew her. Sans might be an ass@– or too bossy but that’s his job and doesn’t let everyone discover his weakings, at least he’s been trained for that. In fact he makes sure that everyone respects their work program and the way things are in Core even if he runs away from his “personal problems”.

I’ve been having a lot of fun making up scenes with Alphys, man I already love her to pieces and when I wrote that script it immediately gave me feels and can’t help but feel bad for the poor dinosaur (yes that’s my headcanon XD).

By the way I have a few  updates more then finish the first episode of this chapter, but I hope everyone, readers or not, will enjoy this story further~ <3 Stay tuned~

McCree says it, but I’ll say it again too.. Hello everyone!

I wanted to announce you through this quick sketch that the next update on the comic will be most probably during the upcoming weekend. I have lots to finish this week and I don’t think I’ll be able to update it any sooner, thing for which I am sorry.. T.T 

Speaking of the McHanzo comic.. It’s close to the end! End of this part/chapter at least! I am planning on doing more, but first I must finish the one I started AND also post the short fan fiction I wrote, that stands at the base of the comic. 

Thank you all for the support and sorry to let you wait more for the next update! *hugs* Also thanks for all the McHanzo fanfiction suggestions!

SVT Hip Hop Unit React: Being Their S/O’s First Kiss

Request: hi! could you please do a seventeen hip hop unit reaction to them being their s/o first kiss? thank you :)

I am so sorry this took so long ): I still have three requests after this, but a lot of schoolwork to do as well. I will do the jackson (got7) boyfriend au after this if I have enough time!

Again, I’m sorry, but I think I got a little carried away with Wonwoo and Mingyu and Vernon’s reaction ): I made Seungcheol’s a bit shorter because wOW I can’t go any further or eLSE SOMETHING WILL HAPPEN


SEUNGCHEOL

Originally posted by cappukino


Your first kiss with Seungcheol (and in general) was short, but sweet.

His fingers were threaded in your hair at the back of your head while his free hand was splayed across the small of your back.

He held you close to his chest when your lips brushed along his own, your breath slightly catching at the contact. Your hands were curiously grabbing onto his bicep and shoulder before they fell limp against his torso when he fully pressed his mouth against yours in a gentle kiss.

Seungcheol cradled the back of your head as he pulled away after a few seconds and he smiled in content, brushing his fingers through your hair.

Your cheeks were a rosy red when you reluctantly pulled away from the kiss, biting the corner of your lip with a shy grin on your face, tucking your chin in out of embarrassment. As Seungcheol basked in the comfortable silence, you suddenly hid your face in the crook of his neck which made him hum in surprise.

He had barely heard you when you murmured on about how you just had your first kiss with him. Of course, this surprised him and he pulled away from you just enough to look at you with a pout on his lips, cupping your cheek in his hand.

“I’m honoured, cutie, but why didn’t you tell me? I hope I didn’t scare you much with that kiss.”

WONWOO

Originally posted by hanwooz


“Stop blowing kisses, you’re distracting me.” Wonwoo said with a playful little pout on his face. He was currently reading a book while you were sitting on the other side of the couch; feeling restless and content at the same time.

Even though you were quite new to being affectionate with Wonwoo, you weren’t as shy as you used to be with how much skinship you share with him. He didn’t exactly know that you didn’t have your first kiss yet, he innocently thought that you two just weren’t at that stage yet and was waiting for you to initiate the action first because he wants to wait until you’re ready (what a bean).

But right now, you’re testing his patience without you knowing. Wonwoo’s eyes would discreetly peek at you whenever you blew him a kiss, his gaze focused on the way you pucker your lips. Subconsciously licking and biting at his bottom lip, he flipped the pages to his book without reading at least half of the text. You grinned happily to yourself once you felt content and grabbed your own book from the coffee table to start reading where you left last time you opened it.

As you were reading, Wonwoo put a bookmark on the page he finished reading before putting the book down on the table in front of the couch, watching you carefully with a fond smile on his face. When you were about to reach the climax of the chapter you were on, he interrupted by carefully crawling over your figure with a sigh escaping him, carefully removing your book from your hands. His nose gently bumped against your cheek to tilt your head up as he rest his hands by either side of your hips, carefully leaning closer and closer to you while his eyelids fluttered, his warm breath fanning across your cheek while his fingertips rest underneath your chin.

You knew what was happening and understood the situation, but you just couldn’t react the way you wanted to. You were too shy to initiate what you wanted and Wonwoo was unintentionally teasing you (nah he was doing it on purpose) by pulling back just the slightest whenever you were brave enough to nudge your head forward to press a kiss to his lips. A playful smirk was playing on his lips before he delicately slots his mouth against your own in a featherlight kiss.

Mumbling against his mouth about how he just became your first kiss, he acknowledged what you said with a surprised hum against your soft lips, causing you to giggle at the tingly vibration. He grinned at that and pulled away for a brief second, only to move in for another gentle kiss.

“I hope I can be your last kiss too, sweetheart.” he mumbles cheekily against your mouth.

MINGYU

Originally posted by maymay-lovekpop


This boy kissed you on your fifth date ??? He couldn’t control himself, he just couldn’t. You looked cute that day and his mind was telling him not to but he DID IT.

You two were on your fifth date at the park. Since it’s spring, the cherry blossoms were blooming and the sky was a vibrant lilac. Conjoining your hands together, Mingyu swung your arms back and forth as he held out his other hand to catch the floating petals that fell off of the branches of a cherry blossom tree.

You let go of his hand to let him catch more and more cherry blossom petals. A smile was on your face as Mingyu caught more petals in his large hands. He immediately ran back to you when his hands were full with the baby pink petals, opening his hands before raising them to his face so he could blow all of the silky petals into your face. You squealed in surprise and closed your eyes with a giggle, barely covering your face with your hands.

Mingyu laughed when you blew away the petals that went too close to your mouth, but stopped your hands from removing the ones that fell in your hair because they looked pretty there.

There was an adoring look in his eyes when you let him wrap his fingers around your wrists. You shied away from his gaze while your cheeks flushed a pretty colour that made Mingyu’s breath catch. When you turned your head to look at him, his mouth was suddenly pressed against yours in a firm, but short kiss.

You gently pushed at his chest with a breathy whine and covered your mouth with your palm, your cheeks heating up much more than before. Mingyu had a curious look on his face when you pushed him away, but then smiled, his head tilting to the side in an innocent manner.

“You’re acting so shy, angel,” he cooes adoringly and brushes his thumb against your cheek, leaning in again to just barely brush his bottom lip along your upper. He grins cheekily when he notices your hands gripping onto your shoulders, printing a tender and loving kiss to your lips, “I know I’m your first kiss,” he whispers, wrapping his arms around your waist, “and I know you’ll let me be your last.”

VERNON

Originally posted by imaginetheseidiots


You have never kissed anyone before in your life and Vernon knew because you two were a little new to dating. He hasn’t had his first kiss either.

Your first kiss with Vernon was really clumsy (and cute). You two were hanging out with each other at the library and were reading the same book because Vernon chose the book first, but it was a novel you have always wanted to read and so that’s how you suddenly ended up with your back pressed against Vernon’s chest as he read out each page to you with his mouth brushing along the shell of your ear whenever his lips formed a word.

His breath tickled your skin whenever he spoke and it made your skin heat up in embarrassment, but you pretended his whispering voice and the contact of his mouth against your ear didn’t make you feel shy. Your fingers were fiddling with the loose strands on his jeans as he continued reading, his chin now hooked on your shoulder.

He leaned his head on yours and tucked you closer against his chest with a content sigh before noticing that you weren’t paying attention to him reading the book anymore; you were unknowingly staring at his lips. Vernon began to blush at this fact and put the book down with a flustered smile, rubbing your arm as he peered at you, “Are you okay, babe?”

Snapping out of your gaze, you smiled sweetly and nodded just the slightest, mumbling a ‘yes’ in response.

Vernon pursed his lips in thought, his gaze settling on your mouth. A nervous breath escaped him before he tried to lean in. And by tried - I mean tried. Your eyes nearly fluttered closed when you saw him get closer, but he clumsily bumped your noses together with a quiet ‘ouch’. You winced slightly at the sting, but giggled along with him when you both soothed your noses.

After you two settled down, Vernon placed a delicately sweet kiss onto your lips with his arms firmly wrapped around your waist.

Stony post-cw fix-its recs (MCU mainly)

Since I didn’t have the time to actually create anything for the 10th Anni of Stony, this rec list is my pseudo-contribution.

Since I don’t know how to make it a part of the event otherwise (sorry!), I’m just going to tag @cap-ironman

For more recs, check out this post by @civilwarbrokemyheart. I’m not going to repeat the recs that are already there.

This is in no particular order, and the fics are loosely grouped by absolutely arbitrary criteria :)

Mind the ratings, I guess.

Enjoy!

About the Merman AU

Alright I will explain it now again^^ + a little update
I was actually busy with commissions but then my health was like nah bro and because of that I can’t draw traditionally right now but I refuse to draw anything serious before I haven’t finished the last commission.
I was in Berlin already but they sent me to another place (tomorrow is the next appointment) and it turns out that I have to do even more stuff..
So basicially
It’s really shitty that it takes so long right now, actually I wanted to return quickly with the next chapter but now it seems that I lost the feeling for it already and I don’t know if I can return to it later @.@
BUT..no matter what, I will at least finish the story in any kind of art form xD Even if they’re just shitty doodles at the end

Hopefully this explains it now^^

anonymous asked:

favorite shakarian fics? i need recs i just got into masseffect and am halfway through the second one, (dont worry abt spoilers my sis already spoiled me)

OH JEEZ, i’m really bad at reading fics, tbh? i prefer writing fic over reading it, but i certainly have some recommendations, although not many.

New Game by alden is a favorite, especially because I love the characterization and banter. Heads up: it is not without its conflicts. If you’re looking for fluff, it shouldn’t be your first choice. (I drunkenly offered this author money, and I still plan on paypalling them at least 20 dollars one of these days.)

Entropy by jhoom fucked my life up for at least 2 weeks. I’ve reread it 3 times, and posted about it before. Again, this should not be your first choice if you’re looking for fluff. It does have a happy ending, though! 

gethsemane by legendaerie is my favorite oneshot. Garrus-centric, and more of a character study than anything else. I love it because it’s the poetic meta-fic about Garrus I had plans to write, but they did it first. (and god knows I love being able to read the content I want without writing it.) 

limit of the flesh by damalur was a fic I’ve had bookmarked since I started ME3, but max @137calibrations strong-armed me into finally reading it. Totally worth it. A Shepard-centric fic with an interesting look into her psyche and a slow(er) look into a post ME3 shakarian romance. 

ghost by theherocomplex is one I haven’t finished yet, because I’m trying to savor it. I vividly remember bawling my lungs out during this one, so be warned. Starts after Shepard’s death in ME2, and goes from there. A crazy-cool idea, and the author pulls it off with a good plot and better writing. 

red streak by thunderheadfred makes me think of my months-old bookmarker’s note. “I hope I can absorb some of ThunderheadFred’s talent when I print this fic out and eat it page-by-page.” VERY nsfw at times, but they do a great job with marking the chapters so you can skip it. Great writing, and an interesting new take on Shepard and Garrus’s characters. 

last but (definitely) not least: future imperfect by mizdirected. Another one I haven’t finished, but if you’re looking for the longest fic you’ll ever read, full of literally everything you could think of, this is it. Canon-divergent, and honestly the most impressive story-centric fics I’ve ever read. This is the fic I dreamt about writing in highschool, when I still had a drive to write thousands of words a month. 

Snippets for "Playmates"

(Sorry, too busy to finish the whole chapter 1 but I swear I already started it)

“Are we seriously arguing Lance’s first word?” Keith’s defeated stance was the only indication that he already gave up making sense of their situation.

“YES!” there was really no need to make the problem too serious, at least for Keith, but it seemed it was a whole other story for the other three.

And Keith thought that Shiro will be the sensible one right now about their current predicament.

“Now, Lance, say Hunk. Hunk.”

“No, Lance, listen to me. Pidge, Pid-ge.”

“Now, now, it is supposed to be Shiro. Right, Lance? Shi-ro.”

The poor baby lying on the crib could only display a confused smile as the other four hovered above him. Keith was slowly getting embarrassed for the rest of the team and at the same time taking pity on baby Lance.

And then they hold their breathe, except Keith, when Lance started to open his mouth. Of course they expected one of their names would be uttered since they have been at it for hours now.

“Keef!!!”

Keith received death glares from the others.

“Of course, it will always be the boyfriend.” They said at the same time. With Hunk saying in the background ‘I’m his best friend! The betrayal!’

Keith really wished that the land of the dead just accepted him instead of making him walk among the living along with the other paladins. Oh and one paladin who was the only one who got a physical body.

For most of my studying life, I’ve never been able to work anywhere near as long as many other people I know. After 2-3 hours, I would be exhausted, and once I stopped, that was it for the day. 

However lately, I’ve managed to get masses of work done in one go, and stay productive without taking massive breaks. Here’s how I did it!

(Note- I was suddenly able to start working much more intensely once I’d been in treatment for mental illness for almost a year, so that may also be a factor. These are just things I did in addition to that minor little thing).

  • Prepare for your work. This is key- without it you’re going into a day without a plan, and hence no structure. You can plan your day as rigidly or as loosely as you would like, so long as you know what you would like to cover. Personally, I use very loose plans, just choosing 3 main topics, or 1 large task for the whole day. I know some people plan when exactly they work, and if that works, great! I prefer to be flexible so I can do whatever work I most feel like at the time. Make sure to pack everything you need, or have it at hand.
  • Move to a workspace that is isolated enough to protect you from distractions, comfortable enough that you can sit there for a few hours, and has plenty of space to put all of your stuff. Once you get here, get settled in, but do it quickly. Take out any materials you need for studying and start work pretty much immediately. Don’t get distracted by your phone or fun websites. Turn off or silence your phone, and block any distracting websites on your laptop, should you be using one (I like SelfControl for that). 
  • Once I get started working, I tend to work until my brain starts to feel fuzzy, and I can feel my focus slipping away. If you’re having trouble focusing in the first few minutes of work, don’t give up. Identify any distractions that are hindering your focus and think about what you could do to mitigate them. If I’m having problems focusing because friends are around, I apologize and leave to work alone. If it’s noisy, I move somewhere quieter, or listen to white noise. If it’s too quiet, I listen to non-distracting music, either instrumental, or music I’ve been listening to a lot lately so nothing new can grab my attention. 
  • If you’ve been trying to work for an hour, and you really can’t, even if you’re removed distractions, give yourself a break, and try and assess what might be bothering you. Are you hungry? Is it too stuffy? Is the environment bad? A change of scenery is usually good in this case, so long as you don’t try and move every 20 minutes.
  • Sometimes you just need to push through the misery and work, regardless of how little focus you have. Work despite your lack of focus, and remind yourself that half-assing something is better than not-assing anything. 
  • Once you’ve been working for a while and your brain feels fuzzy, or you feel tired, it’s important to take a break since your retention and performance will begin to suffer. Don’t take too long a break, as that can lead to procrastination and stopping work, but it is vital to do something other than study. Things that I do for breaks:
    • go buy a cup of tea
    • go to the bathroom
    • skype my parents
    • play a mindless and repetitive game on my phone
    • take a quick walk around the library building
    • have a quick chat with a friend
    • read a chapter of a fiction book (dangerous since I sometimes don’t stop reading)
    • fill up my water bottle
    • clean up my workspace and throw away any scrap paper
    • go buy food (I eat a lot of sugar when I study like this, but fruit would be better learn from my mistakes)
    • write a tumblr post (this is a fantastic break from thermo atm)
  • As soon as your brain stops feeling fuzzy, or is at least less fuzzy, get back to work doing something different if you can, or finish off what you were doing and switch topics or tasks. I really find that making sure that you’re not doing exactly the same kind of thing the entire time really helps. Variety really keeps me from getting incredibly bored over the course of the day, and reengages you since it’s something new. 
  • Repeat until you notice that you’re getting tired in shorter and shorter intervals. If I feel forced to take multiple breaks in the space of say, half an hour, and I’ve been working all day, then I know I’m reaching the end of my tether, and I’d better stop. This is usually between 8-12 hours of work.
  • NOTE: I only work this long when I am in last-minute exam preparation. Before the last week before my exams I was working maybe 4-5 hours a day, since I was doing a different type of revision, taking notes and reviewing them and making and using flashcards. For an overall review of notes and doing past papers and marking them then addressing my weak spots, it’s easier to work longer. It’s also easier to work longer when you’re writing a report or an essay, since that naturally has different stages you can cycle through (I can write another post about that too, since I have a research proposal to do for mid-June!). I also tend to sleep about 11 hours a night when I work this much, since it really exhausts me. Be sure to pace yourself appropriately and don’t let yourself burn out

    Okay, there we have it, my tips for working for long periods of time! I hope you enjoyed it (if you made it all the way to the end-kudos!), and do let me know if there is any other advice you’d like! Best of luck my lovelies xx

    How long has Bum been Sangwoo's prisoner?

      So I’ve been thinking about this a lot and I’ve seen a couple people make estimates of anywhere from around a month to 5 months. As of chapter 17, I put my estimate around 9-15 weeks judging by the healing of Bum’s legs.

      Just a warning, this is going to be a long post, and kinda technical (sorry). I’m referencing “Forensic Anthropology, Current Methods and Practice 2014″. All images are taken from Lezhin and are property of Koogi.

     I had a lot of fun writing this, but it is more of a thought experiment than anything. I don’t know how much thought Koogi put into Bum’s healing time and this comic is a work of fiction. Still, if you want my thoughts continue reading :>

     This is ended up being hella long so I’ll put it under the cut. Here are my thoughts:

    Harry doesn’t mind that so many Slytherins from his year have returned to finish their NEWTs, really he doesn’t. It’s just – do they have to be so friendly? He’s not prejudiced, really he’s not. It’s just – they’ve got to be up to something, right? Unnerved by the attention he’s attracting from everyone – the Slytherins are the least of it, to be fair – and struggling with a raft of changes to Hogwarts itself, Harry wishes he could be happy that one constant remains: Draco Malfoy really fucking hates him.

    When he’s hit by an illegal love-spell though, Harry finds he has more to worry about than whether or not Blaise Zabini actually wants to be his friend. For if everyone affected has been blessed – or cursed, by the look on Malfoy’s face – with a magical tattoo revealing the name of their soulmate, what does it mean that Harry’s skin remains completely bare?

    My Comments: This is such a beautiful fic. My heart <3 Their characterizations are spot on, their love is beautiful, and they’re both such idiots but it’s great. 

    finished reading THE LAST CHAPTER of sayonara alpha. that was so fucking cute. my heart has been cleansed.

    i’m so haaaaappy aaaah. though chika gotta wait 4 more yrs before haruka will move in with him. apparently haruka wants to finish college first and get a job. he doesn’t want to leech off of chika but be in a more equal level with him. he’s so fucking mature, like omg? but at least they can still see each other and have lots of LEGAL, HOT SEX. (oh yeah, and they’re now a pair.)
