An oldie but a goodie: my favorite photo of Harry.
He’s doing all right. We’re still not sure if it’s just teeth problems or something worse. But we’re giving him antibiotics and that helps some. His appetite is good. And he’s still a pain in the butt when he wants to be. I take this for an encouraging sign.
I’m stressed and worried but finding some distraction in writing and books and stuff. Sometimes just scrolling through Tumblr provides some relief. (See, even Tumblr has its uses.)
Simply put, I’m not doing smut anymore even though I’m of age. Quite frankly, it’s one of my least favorite things to write. I’m quite convinced I’m awful at it, it drags my drafts down because I am very self conscious about writing smut scenes and as a result it takes forever to do said drafts, and I have trouble writing it without feeling highly repetitive. I have tried writing it many times, I have looked up suggestions and tips on how to write it, but quite frankly I’m still very uncomfortable with it.
As a result, everything is going to be a fade to black from now on. I will still do smut on IM, as the quick banter style I’m much more comfortable with doing, and since me and one other person are reading it, I’m far less self conscious about it. I will be adding this to my rules later tonight.
Fic authors self rec! When you get this, reply with your favorite five fics that you’ve written, then pass on to at least five other writers (◠‿◠✿)
Tagged by @beautifullights1, and thank you! This looks fascinating! I think I’ll try to pick these all from different fandoms, because otherwise it might get TFA-heavy.
Okay, #1, from the Hobbit fandom, absolutely has to be Coats and Customs, of which I am absurdly proud - I’m proud of that whole series, but C&C was the one that kicked the whole thing off, and I still love it.
#3 is Better Cold Hands Than None At All, a Potter fic, because I had a lot of fun with the word choices and the phrasing in that one, and also it was an exercise in putting a lot into a very small number of words - and also it’s unrepentant Dark!fic, which I don’t do often.
#4 actually continues the Dark!fic trend, with the Aladdin fic Harsh Lessons, because alternate endings can be interesting and giving Jasmine some teeth was kind of fun.
And last but not least, #5, from the Snow White fandom, The Evil Queen Explains, because it was fascinating to try and put myself in her shoes and figure out what could make someone be that cruel. Also I had fun with the language.
I have no idea who to tag, so…anyone who wants to play, please do!
i honestly think you are really cool. zemo was absolutely my favourite character from CW and i actually wanted to play him myself and just never did thanks to another muse taking over, but you play him better than i could ever even begin to dream of doing. you have a beautiful, fluent, broad writing style that really brings out the character and all of your interactions are filled with amazing detail. you've put so much work into him and it shows. you've done a great job, keep it up!
PEOPLE SENDING ME THINGS I DON’T DESERVE
tbh zemo was my favorite character from CW & ahh no man, if you still have muse for him I say GO FOR IT. but i’m glad that other muse did stick to ( I hope you’re happy writing hat muse ),. honestly, thank you soooo much. i am really focused on detail but, one of the problems i ran into in high school/college, was being concise. SO, i wanted to use ZEMO as a chance to really hone in on the detail & make it general specific and just REIGN IT IN while still being very VIVID. and i hope i achieved that sense of control with him while still being able to give the writer a good description of his surroundings or thoughts or actions. i really felt an immediate connection to him ,largely in part because of daniel’s performance. and i know he differs A LOT from the helmut zemo in the comics but we don’t know if THAT VERSION of helmut zemo will evolve from what’s happened in the CW FILM so far. but i just!! LOVE THIS SAD DAD & I’M GLAD YOU SEEM TO ENJOY HIM TOO. thank you so much for sending this in darling, it means a lot!!
My Top 10 Favorite Things About The New Ghostbusters Movie
Because apparently I like telling Tumblr my 10 favorite
things about nerd movies.
Kate McKinnon. I mean, I could probably leave
it there. But I no longer see her and call her “That one SNL girl”. Because she
is queen. And seriously, her face. In every. Single. Frame. I swear her face is
made of rubber. Like, her expressions are fantastic! I’ve finally found Buster
Keaton’s opposite. And somehow I still love both of them.
Chris Hemsworth being a dumb blonde. Okay, so I
know I’m like, way behind on the times here. But I’ve honestly never really
thought Chris was attractive. Like, I didn’t think he was unattractive I was
just like, “Meh. Doesn’t do it for me.” And I swear I’m not attracted to his
dumb-ness. I think I’m attracted to the fact that I saw him and was prejudice
and thought “Buff, blonde, action guy. He’s got to be a tool.” But tools aren’t
okay with making fun of themselves. And the fact that he’s literally playing a
reverse-gender-stereotype-dumb-blonde makes me sort of love him. The glasses
don’t hurt either. And maybe I’ve just discovered his smile. It’s not my fault!
I was blinded by prejudice before!
All the nods to the original movies and the cameos. Seriously,
all the people who are mad that they’re rebooting Ghostbusters. Seriously? The
original cast is behind this reboot! They support it. And they made all these
nods to the old movies. They kept the movie sort of cheesy and goofy like the
first two were and didn’t try to action it up to grab the attention of a modern
audience. That movie is totally 80s/90s but with better graphics. And it was
loaded with Easter Eggs. And I love them for that.
Just Kristen Wiig in general. I mean, I already
loved her. But this just made me love her more.
All four of those little weirdos. I’m so glad
they made these characters so real and relatable and dimensional. This wasn’t “Let’s
make Ghostbusters, but with women!”. Because that would be cheap, and it would
feel cheap and flat. And I would have hated this movie if it felt like they
were pandering to a female audience to pacify feminists or whatever people
think they were trying to do with this movie. They just made an awesome movie
with flawed, crazy characters who just happened to be female. And it was
awesome and flawless. It so easily could have been, “Ghostbusters but with
women!” but it wasn’t. It was just “Ghostbusters”.
The ghosts. I mean, I know they were cartoon-y
but I loved them. The movie stayed sort of light and didn’t go full-on The
Conjuring. And that made it feel like the originals :)
The five billion one-liners. Particularly from
Chris Hemsworth. And his inability to answer the phone.
Kristen Wiig’s face every time Chris Hemsworth
was in the room. And Melissa McCarthy attempting to rein her in.
Patty being a genuinely nice, concerned human
being. She wasn’t a scientist like the others. She just wanted to help out. And
even in a crappy job where people ignored her, she still tried to be nice. And
that’s so rare.
saying, “Nothing in here. Just a room full of nightmares.” About the room full
of mannequins. Because FINALLY a character in a scary movie who does and says
what any normal human being would say.
tbh, that bit in the extended opening after they sing “but we’re not going to do it alone” where there’s a brief pause in the music and Yellow Diamond’s silhouette slooowly turns slightly to glare sideways at the camera and then it just like smash cuts to the “We are the Crystal Gems” official opening part, is still one of my favorite things ever. It’s just so cool and well done and I love it. Like it was such a great way to sort-of introduce the Big Bad
and also ‘cause I remember the first time we saw it was the recording of it from SDCC 2015 and when that happened the audience just started cheering and going wild and there was just so much excitement and hype both there and in the discussion online and it was so great, I love that and I can still feel echos of that energy whenever I rewatch the extended opening, its great
As a kid, one of my favorite things to do was to make my parents and grandparents tell stories … But in my Southern Baptist family, the few stories about people like me were shrouded in euphemisms or shame … Eventually I found that the word to describe myself was “bisexual.”
I came out, found the LGBTQ community, and became an activist. But still stories about other bisexual people were few and far between. Bisexual people were barely visible … prominent bi celebrities were either closeted or assumed to be gay …
Our stories in popular culture were stereotypes and clichés.
Please come and share your stories good as well as bad of being a bisexual/non-monosexual person. Include experiences of discrimination as a bisexual person, because if we don’t clearly delineate what is wrong we cannot fix it.
People are rational actors, and, as history shows, no government can
mandate prices in the face of massive inflation. If they try, black markets arise—or merchants simply refuse to take the tainted money. Since the Lannisters are still considered rather wealthy, we can assume that they have some basic understanding of numismatic theory and limit the Westerosi gold supply. This may be why, as Cersei reminisces, Lord Tywin gave Lord Rykker a murderous look when he suggested that, if the late King Aerys needed money, he should sit Tywin on his chamber pot: Extorting gold from the Lannister vaults would cause massive inflation and ruin the house.
