a bit of blogging

anonymous asked:

I've just sat and read Better With You By My Side in one sitting. It's taken about 6 hours and half a pack of tissues because your writing is so incredible is reduced me to tears countless times, and it's possibly the best chaptered fic I've ever read, I cannot shower enough praise on you. The pacing was perfect, the plot kept me guessing, and was just the right mix of angst, fluff, and occasional smut. Thank you so so much for writing this wonderful story.

OH MY GOD u have no idea how much it means to hear this thank u so so so much i’m honestly so happy you liked it omg this message made my day <33

moving.

alright, my dudes. here’s the deal      i’ve been in a ridiculous writing funk lately (and just in an overall weird place mentally), to the point where i legit considered quitting rp for a while. in the end i decided to give it another shot, but i really need a fresh start. now what does this mean? it means i’m archiving this blog and moving to a new one. there’ll be some changes too: i’m talking new muses with actual info pages, a better tagging system, and just overall me being more chill about rping (this is a hobby after all, and i take this shit way too seriously when i have irl stuff going on).
also, here’s a few other important changes:
- i’m changing some of my muses to a ‘request only’ status (they’re still there for interactions, i’ll just be much more selective about writing them); if your muse had a significant relationship with any of them over on this blog, they’ll be kept, so i’ll definitely be down to continue writing with them;
- blog won’t be as active as before, though i’ll still be around plenty;
- i’m gonna be changing my alias, too. i kinda feel like i’ve outgrown my old nickname, so i’ll just be using my real name from now on. so hi y’all, i’m sofia and i love u. (but if you’re an old follower, you can just address me however you want ok; it’s not a big deal, i just figured i’d make use of the revamp to finally change it).

regarding threads, i plan on keeping most of them. i’ll be moving the few drafts i have over to the new blog, and i’ll reply to them when i can. if you want to continue our thread, just please @ me so i can see it; if not, feel free to take this opportunity to drop it.

ok and !! i think that’s that?? this turned out really long, sorry. i just wanted to get all this written down before the move (this will all be up in my rules page anyway     which i ask that you please read if you decide to follow ). and if you decide not to follow the new blog, that’s a-okay, man. i enjoyed having you on my dash and writing with you, if that was the case, and happy rping !! to everyone else, catch you on the flipside.

          HELLO, DOVES ! it’s official, i’m the worst. i say i’ll get stuff done & i never do ?? i’m truly sorry ! but since my other one is so old, i figured i would put out a new STARTER CALL ! i’m capping at 12, for now, so i can manage my drafts a tad better ! pls love me, i’m sorry. ; n ;

Red Robin, My Lovely

Request: Sorry, didn’t want to request something right away in case you’re gotten slammed, as it happens so often with new blogs. But can I request Tim’s s/o figures out that he’s Red Robin and when the s/o tells him, he’s both shocked and ‘Yup, that’s my s/o’?

Can I request the reader patching up Tim after a fight and him trying to calm their worries and end up confessing?

A/N: Eyyy so I combined these two (after like…so long lol I’m sorry)


Holy crap. Holy friggin crap. No way. Out of all people, he couldn’t be Red Robin. But at the same time, out of all people, he would be a masked vigilante beating up criminals and saving the world. Huh. Who’d have thought?

You pulled the bulletin board down from the wall and slid it under your bed. You tossed a few books and boxes underneath as well, just to stave off suspicion. A decently well guarded secret never hurt anybody, but what were you going to do with your new information?

A knock sounded at your door, and you opened it to find your loving boyfriend (who also rubbed shoulders with the greatest heroes in the world every other Thursday) leaning against the wall with a shopping bag. Tim rubbed the back of his head and offered up the bag with a sheepish grin.

“Sorry I missed our date yesterday. Something came up.”

Ushering him inside, you placed the gift aside, noting how he grimaced slightly every time he moved. Made sense–as Red Robin, he’d probably taken quite a few beatings. Poor thing. Between schoolwork, Wayne responsibilities, and his “extracurriculars,” Tim must have so much on his plate. And all the while he’d been wounded.

“Y/N?” Tim walked over, rubbing gentle circles into your shoulders.

He turned you around to face him, cupping your face when he saw the tears brimming in your eyes.

“Tim…you’re hurt. How…how do you keep going?”

So maybe he wasn’t as sneaky as he thought. Fresh stitches were always the hardest to hide. “It’s fine. I’m just a bit sore. Guess I didn’t stretch enough.”

“What about the stitches?”

Damn. Those were harder to explain. Last night’s fight with Killer Croc made the third set of stitches this month, so there wasn’t an easy explanation. Maybe it was time to come clean…

“Y/N, there’s something I need to tell you–”

“I already know you’re Red Robin.”

Well. He hadn’t been expecting that. Then again, what did he think? Of all people, Y/N would have been the one to figure it out.

“I’m sorry, was that too soon? What were you going to say?”

“I–I was going to say that I love you and hope that distracted you from the stitches, but this works too. To be honest, I’m not surprised you figured it out. How?”

You laughed, letting the tears fall freely down your face. “Oh, you should see my board. It’s full of stuff about you.”

He drew you closer and guided your steps towards the couch. “Please show me?”

You smiled, wiping the tears away. “Sure thing, Tim. And one more thing.”

“What’s that?”

“I love you too, Red Robin.”

Plagiarized fics - asking for help from the 1D fandom

Hi everyone! I’m poking my head in your door from the Haikyuu fandom to ask you guys for help. I have spoken to quite a few people in the One Direction fandom thus far and I have been overwhelmed by their kindness, support, and how fast everyone I talked to acted to help me and my friend get this sorted out.

It came to my and my best friend ellessey-writes’s attention (confusing names, sorry! I’m Esselle) this morning that many of our fics had been stolen by the Tumblr/AO3 user Fruxoo, who has since deleted her accounts.

Here are two screenshots of Fruxoo’s fics, posted in April. The first is a direct copy of my story Hunger, completed last June 2016. The second is the summary from Ellie’s story Tea and Sympathy, posted January of this year. The entire text of every fic Fruxoo stole has been copied almost exactly word for word from our fics, changing only the names and other relevant character info.

I messaged her privately and asked that she post an explanation on Tumblr, as well as replace the text of her stolen works with links to our respective stories, in order to notify any readers who enjoyed these works. Unfortunately, she didn’t respond. Now that she has taken everything down, that’s no longer possible.

It would mean the world to Ellie and I if people would help spread the word about what happened. Last year, between the two of us, we wrote 626,000 words. We poured all our energy and love (and time!) into these stories, and to have someone copy them word for word, lie to people who were kind enough to comment or send asks as if they had thought up the ideas on their own, and interact with other people in the 1D fandom based off of love for OUR writing, is devastating to us both. This was going on for at least 2.5 months.

Besides the two stories listed above, we know As Long As You’re Smiling was actually copied from ellessey-writes​​‘s fic The Chronicles of the Virgin Asahi. We think this is the first fic they grabbed, due to the note on the summary. Here is a masterpost of all Ellie’s works from last year, and a link to her AO3.

They also took my incubus story Dreamless and reposted it as Lilin. This fic was posted as a part of a collab for my close friend’s artwork. reallycorking​​ drew this (VERY NSFW) art as part of a 30 day challenge, and the two of us worked together for a full month on Dreamless. Here is my fic masterpost for last year, and a link to my AO3.

I wanted to share links to the rest of our work because we don’t know how many stories she stole (it seemed like there were around 10 in total). We didn’t even have time to make a note of everything before she removed her accounts. So we don’t know what people read and might want to re-find (if there’s any interest cross-fandom).

Again, the One Direction fandom has been so incredibly supportive (Gina, Ange, phd-mama, Emmi, Lisa and everyone who was so helpful and understanding). Ellie and I started off the morning crushed, and now I have comments in my inbox on the fics that were stolen, and asks on Tumblr showing support, and it’s nearly brought me to tears. Thank you all so much. If anyone who sees this would be kind enough to get the word out there in any way (reblogs, just telling your friends who’ve read these stories, anything!!), we’d be incredibly grateful.

THANK YOU, to everyone who takes the time to read this.

I will say, hands are some of the hardest things to grasp when learning how to draw! Even people who have been drawing for years can be intimidated by these lil appendages! My methods for drawing them might be a bit weird, but I’m happy to share some of the things I try and keep in mind while trying to capture the essence of The Hand

I hope some people can find this useful! I could probably have gone on and on about drawing hands in this post but it’s already long enough-
