a fantastic journey

Top Ten Awesome Fanfics *

* yep, not “all-time favourite”, because I cannot choose in all objectivity only ten fics. This list is a list of ten fics* chosen in my five main fandoms that I love and feel like they should be read, but it could have been ten others … It’s very hard to choose. One day I’ll do a real masterpost fic rec …
* yes, I’ve cheated. There are waaaaay more than just ten fics here … Sorry not sorry.

The lovely @justkeeponthegrass had a brillant idea : to make a collection of our favourite fanfics to show writers just how much we appreciate, respect and admire their work. I personally owe a great deal to fanfic writers, especially in the Merlin fandom, for they helped me get through a very hard period of my life. Fanfic writers have been and are constant companions of my life, whether I’m sad, happy, tired or feeling excited, they always deliver, they are amazing people who do an amazing work just because they like it. I admire the hell out of any of you, and the following ten titles, plus the special and honorable mentions, are me trying to tell you how much you mean. Very, very long post incoming …

Hi! New around here... May I ask what do you like about Madancy? Mads sure seems to fancy Mr. Dancy, Hugh.. not so much )=

My dear sweet baby fannibal, I need to stop you right there. 

Since you say you’re new, I’ll help you out.

“Well, it came about because one of the things that was very important was that Will Graham and Hannibal Lecter have a likeability, not only on screen but with each other. The fact that Hugh Dancy and Mads Mikkelsen are very good friends in real life cinched the deal, in my mind. That was important because I knew it was going to translate to screen. We wanted the audience to like these two men liking each other.” — Bryan Fuller on how he ended up casting Mads Mikkelsen (x)

“Hugh Dancy was the first actor cast and that made the project all that more appetizing for Mads Mikkelsen, who knew Hugh and worked with him in the past and rightfully adored him.— Bryan Fuller (x)”

“Me and Hugh (Dancy) were two of the knights (in King Arthur). So we were sitting for half a year on horseback and we became friends way back then. It’s just been a gift. We’re doing a show like this where you’re working so close together. It’s nice to be comfortable with each other, and that was just a gift that it turned out to be me and Hugh”— Mads Mikkelsen 

“Mads is a remarkable combination of things. He’s more than capable of fighting for what he wants. He’s amazing.”— Hugh Dancy

“Well obviously what I’m going to miss is just sitting down in a chair and having chit-chats with Hugh Dancy.” — Mads Mikkelsen on Hannibal S3 (x)

“It’s great. The very first time we sat down, talked about the show, Mads came up at the conversation. I worked with Mads nine years ago now on ‘King Arthur’. Completely different. Could not be more different. But during that period I got to know him and really like him. As a man as an actor. And had followed his career ever since then. I knew it was going to be great. That relationship is so complicated and interesting. It has to be believable. That’s one of the highlights of the show for me.” — Hugh Dancy

“So, spending that much time with a fellow actor, as I knew I would do with Hugh, it was just a fantastic gift that we knew each other. We are not only in the room, but to a degree, we have to be emotionally naked in certain situations.” — Mads Mikkelsen spoke about friendship with Hugh and cast (x)

(Mads Mikkelsen from Red Dragon Con, post)

(Hugh Dancy, The Path interview, post)

He’s worked with the actor Hugh Dancy previously and agrees that such a genuine friendship lends something special to their on screen relationship. “It was a great gift for both of us, that we were able to spend some much time together on the show. We were kind of in a boat of insecurity from the beginning, but it was nice to have a friend there, if you go down or you stay up. To be able to be comfortable with someone in a room, day in, day out of filming, 12 hours a day, was an extreme gift for both of us. We found a way of working together really fast. Hopefully I’ll get to spend time with him during the third season as well, but if not I’ll just have to go drink some beers with him!” — Mads Mikkelsen (x)

“I would say an actor like Mads, but there aren’t any, there’s just Mads.” — Hugh Dancy during the SAG Foundation interview (x).

And finally:

“Collaboration with Mads, who I love, who’s a wonderful actor and incredible partner in that respect “ — Hugh Dancy on what the show means to him

Hugh has become one of my very, very, very good friends. We knew each other from before, but it’s been so intense to spend three seasons together. I was there when he had his first little baby. It’s been a fantastic journey. We were just very, very lucky that we ended up with each other. Imagine if we had ended up with someone we didn’t like.” — Mads Mikkelsen (post)

Mads Mikkelsen and Hugh Dancy are friends. I’m not sure where you got the impression that they aren’t or that one dislikes the other.

Mads likes Hugh. 

Hugh likes Mads. 

They’re friends.

And their amazing chemistry and friendship (and various aesthetic reasons) is why I ship the fleet of ships that belong to Hugh and Mads and their characters.

So, after all of this, if you’re interested in some more Mads and Hugh liking each other and goofing around together goodies, check out my tag ‘danish crumpet’.

Thirty-One Ways To Make Money With Tarot

Being a Tarot professional and hobbyist can be such a wonderful experience. For many, the exploration of Tarot is one of the best parts of their lives. Some Tarot users use divination as a means for a successful career. Some use it as a side income, while others enjoy Tarot because it is their passion. Tarot is a wonderful tool for people to connect with each other and provide services of enlightenment and understanding. But what if you don’t want to sell readings? What if Tarot reading is an introspective process for you? What if you are someone who isn’t comfortable reading Tarot for others or plain don’t like doing it? How will you make money then? In this post, I have provided thirty-one ways to make money with Tarot that isn’t offering Tarot readings.

Spread Creation Services

Do you like creating Tarot spreads for yourself or clients? If you have an online eCommerce shop, you can provide spread crafting services to other tarot readers or clients who may need help in formulating a Tarot spread of their own.

Deck Modification Services

If you are a fan and skilled in Tarot deck customization and modification, you can provide such a service to the Tarot and Divination communities. Some of these services may include removing borders off decks, edging decks with faux gilding, customizing card backs and fronts, etc.

Tarot Business Coaching

Sometimes as new tarot professionals starting out we could use some tailored guidance on our journey. One fantastic thing you can do to help other Tarot readers or upcoming Tarot professionals is to offer some form of business coaching. If you have been in this business for a significant amount of time, your voice, experience, and know-how can be very much sought after. Online webinars and one to one training seem to be popular in this line of work.

Teaching A Tarot Class, Workshop Or E-Course

Tarot is becoming much more accessible and more mainstream. Teaching a Tarot course or workshop is a fantastic way to help other Tarot readers on their journey. I have taught an introductory Tarot course at one of the metaphysical shops I have worked at previously and it was such a rewarding experience. You can also create an e-course that can be downloaded and followed through online means.

Books, E-Books, Zines

Your voice should be heard and what better way to share it than with a book. You can make money with Tarot by creating independently published books and ebooks be it through Blurb, CreateSpace, Amazon, etc. One of the most popular topics are how-to guides. You can also craft your own zine both hard copy and electronic ones and sell them online. Another very lucrative market in regards to selling books is having your books in audio book formats. Using services like Audible and Apple iTunes, or even selling your own packaged mp3 files through your e-commerce store can prove a great way to make money.

Guest Writing

Do you like writing about Tarot but aren’t ready to create a full book? Something you might want to consider is writing original blog posts and content for other bloggers or providing articles for sponsored tarot networks. The pay varies but it is a cool way to make money and get your name out there.

Sponsored Content

If you have a large social media following you can do promotional and sponsored written and video posts for deck publishing companies both large and independent. You can also write and record sponsored reviews of Tarot products, goods, and services.

Ads

Do you have a significant amount of followers on your social media platforms, Youtube, blog, and website? Something you can consider implementing is Google Adsense and tailored ads that you can run on those platforms. Running Adsense on your Youtube videos can get you money from advertisers who put ads before and after your videos.

Affiliate Programs

If you use sites like Amazon and Ebay you can sign up for their affiliate program. An affiliate program is when you share links to products and services like Tarot decks and deck bags with your following through the affiliate program links and if your following purchases that product through your specific link, you get paid a commission by the program because you brought them traffic and sales.

Being A Reseller

If you have a registered Tarot business, you can apply to be a deck and book reseller for various Tarot publishing companies. You essentially purchase products (decks, books, misc accessories) at wholesale pricing and resell them.

Deck Creation

Have you ever wanted to make your own Tarot deck? Creating and selling your very own Tarot deck can be a great way to share your creativity but also make money in the process.

Tarot Deck Artist And Illustrator

If you are an artist you can market your artistic ability and services to deck creators and publishing companies who are looking for artists to create Tarot decks.

Tarot Tattoo Artist

I know of some great tattoo artists who work solely on esoteric and tarot themed tattoos. This could be something to consider if you are interested in this line of work.

Sell Your Own Tarot Decks And Books

Do you have decks or Tarot books that you don’t use or want anymore? Are you trying to slim down your Tarot collection? A wonderful way to obtain some extra money is to sell your decks and Tarot books. You can sell unused and or out of print decks for higher rates.

Missing Card Services

Do you have a deck that is missing one or two cards? A great way to put a deck like that to use and help others is to sell individual cards of that deck for people to buy if they have also misplaced a card within that deck. If the deck is popular or one that is out of print, this can be another lucrative way to use something as simple as an incomplete deck to make some money.

Tarot Merchandise

Do you like to create your own Tarot inspired merchandise? Do you like making Tarot deck bags or cloths? Making and selling tarot inspired jewelry, clothing, deck bags, deck wallets, deck wraps, deck boxes, deck mats, deck cloths, t-shirts, hats, pins and other divination accessories can help make you a significant income. You can also offer custom pieces at much higher rates and even sell them through your own online e-commerce shop, fairs, and festivals or through local metaphysical shops.

Artisan Craft Templates

Do you have beautiful artisan designs that you are willing to share with other Tarot craft creators? You can provide paid video tutorials, and templates for your deck bags, tarot cloths, crochet and sewing deck bag techniques. You can also sell tips and tricks for your tarot inspired jewelry, etc.

Printables

Do you like creating tarot journal and planner pages? This can be a great way to help other tarot readers on their journey stay organized and implement tarot into their daily routine. You can create printable pages for a card of the day, week, and month posts, as well as journaling pages. You can also create and sell Tarot themed activity worksheets, Tarot business trackers, etc.

Private Tutorial

If you have no interest in creating and selling a large course but still want to provide a specific tutorial on a Tarot or divination topic, you can sell that tutorial.

Guided Meditations

Many of us have trouble relaxing or getting “into the zone” before a Tarot reading. Like audio books, you can also sell your Tarot and divination themed guided meditations to those who are interested in that type of meditation and relaxation resource.

Tarot Speaker

If you like to talk about Tarot, you may want to try giving talks about tarot at conventions, events and Tarot themed panels.

Photographer For Hire

Are you a photographer? Have a good camera? You can offer your photography services to Tarot businesses to take product shots, and tarot themed photography for their website or blog.

Writer For Hire

Are you proficient in copywriting services? You can offer your skills to those looking to better their web copy for their business, products, and services.

Social Media Marketer For Hire

Are you a social media marketer marvel? You can offer your services to Tarot businesses who want to better their social media platforms and drive more traffic to their business.

Graphic Designer And Web Designer For Hire

Are you a graphic artist or web designer who loves Tarot? You can offer your design services to Tarot businesses and professionals who need websites, landing pages, logos, header images, promotional graphics, and banners.

Subscription Services

If you are interested in offering monthly subscription services you can create a membership service on your own site or use websites like Patreon to supply your supporters with fresh Tarot themed content monthly. You can also use websites like cratejoy if you are interested in creating monthly subscription boxes that are Tarot themed. You can also create monthly subscription “communities” tailored to Tarot and your specific audience.

Mobile Tarot App

Are you proficient in creating mobile applications? You could create your own Tarot themed app and sell it on Apple and Android mobile marketplaces. You can also make additional income if your application has advertisements within it.

Paid Focus Groups

A focus group is when companies bring a diverse group of people together to talk about, discuss and try a product or service before it is released for feedback. The pay varies by company but it is a great way to make some money. I have been in two focus groups for Tarot applications in regards to their usability and ease of use.

Middle Man Mailing Service

For those who live in various parts of the world other than the United States, there are Tarot decks that come with large shipping fees. You can offer to purchase Tarot decks for others who live in a different part of the world or have a difficult time obtaining a certain deck because of their geological location and include a service fee and send them the deck at a much lower rate than they would have to pay if they purchased it directly.

Rent Out Your Space

Do you have a store front, office space or own your home? You can rent out your space for Tarot events and meet ups.

Virtual Assistant

Do you excel in helping other people’s businesses off the ground? You might want to consider offering virtual assistant services in helping Tarot readers and businesses who need an extra set of eyes and hands to help them run it.

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey (2012)

Now for something completely different

(Requests now closed)

Lena Luthor x reader (One small addition, and an even greater outcome)

a/n: did anybody say kid fic with Lena Luthor??? No?? well I’m gonna do the thing anyway because it just came to me at work and I realized I had to do the thing… so here we are I guess LOL. Here’s the kid fic nobody asked for!!

- - - - -

For all the mild complaining you do about the vague routine you seem to have fallen into in recent days, you would also say you’re not exactly looking to do much to change the comfortable predictability your life has taken thus far either.

You’re a fairly uncomplicated person; you have modest concerns and needs and first and foremost really, all you want to do is some good and to be happy.

Maybe along the way of what is a very long-winded, fantastical journey that is the experience of life, you’ll make a few friends, lose some, meet new people, make somebody’s day, ruin somebody’s day, eat some great food, travel to new places, find a new favourite band. You want to do it all - you always have.

Life, you know, is a whirlwind of surprises, expectations being thrown, and a lot of having to adapt.

It was one such day during the week when you find yourself making yet another trip to L-Corp, one of the many you’ve undertaken in the rather short while you’ve known Lena Luthor.

With all of your very intimate understanding of life’s quirks and sudden missteps, you’ve learned to be prepared for anything thrown your way.

As such, this is how you’ve managed to not throw the entirety of the near-full coffee cups you had in a tray in your hand when you walked into Lena’s office.

You don’t realize you’ve been holding your breath until a particularly long, drawn out one is released slowly from your puffed out cheeks.

When you look down at whatever it was you nearly tripped over right by Lena’s door (you don’t suspect it’s her heels, Lena is never that careless with her belongings), a pair of wide green eyes look up at you from behind what you can only describe as a mop of unruly brown hair.

Hello!

     I’m Mod Bon-Bon. This is yet another Transformers headcanons/scenarios/drabbles/etc blog, mostly by the fault of @coachboom who is coincidentally also the other mod of this blog! We will both be posting oneshots here as well as normal headcanons blog content.

     I’ll be posting semi-frequently now that Summer has almost started. If you’d like to request anything Transformers in this time, give a quick check to our Rules page then send us your sins! You can request either Mod, but please forgive us if it takes a little longer to get to your ask due to that! I’m still in school and Mod Wasabi is dealing with everyday stupid bullshit(my poor baby :’c). We write as we go. Thanks, lovelies!

Now roll out, hotobots. <3

anonymous asked:

In my experience, I generally get along with ESFPs very well (I'm INFP) though I can find them kind of loud. But I generally can't stand ESTPs (with some exceptions). What are the differences between ESFPs and ESTPs?

Predictability:

  • ESFP’s can come off as chaotic to the newcomer, but once you spend enough time with them ESFP’s become more predictable until you can read them like a book. ESFP’s are erratic but there lies a logic underneath it all. There is method to their madness.
  • ESTP’s are chaos incarnate. Despite being a sibling type to the ESFP I struggle to get a solid understanding of any of my ESTP friends. I can type them in an instant, but I can never truly understand them. They do what they want, when they want. ESTP’s appear logical but are driven by fickle and inconsistent desires. There is madness to their method.

Empathy:

  • ESFP’s with a well-trained Fi can be very empathetic individuals because they use their strong internal emotions and aim to make sure no other individuals suffer in the same way they have. Using their emotions and experiences for a guide on the world around them, what they do with that depends on the ESFP. Many ESFP’s possess a strong sense of their own ideals and emotional status but are not always willing to disclose to those they deem ‘unworthy’.
  • ESTP’s have a low Fe, so they may struggle with several social conventions and possess a disregard what the later social implications may be. However, that nagging voice of concern pulls back on several of their hi-jinks. If the ESTP possesses a developed Fe they are able to pick up the emotional state of those around them and express genuine concern. However, regardless of their competency of Fe they may often find themselves swamped with a massive collection of burdens and emotions they had no memory of collecting.

Logic:

  • ESFP’s tend to be direct but less consistent as their feelings may cloud their ultimate judgement. Imagine the emotionally uninvolved ESFP as a direct line from A to B and the emotionally charged ESFP as a line which starts at point A then promptly swoops up off the end of the page never to be seen again.
  • ESTP’s tend to be less direct but more consistent. This is done by making several stops along the way to their conclusion. The ESTP logic system goes from point A to point A.02 to point A.σ makes a pit stop at point D3 and goes straight to point B. Despite their fantastic journey, the ESTP will come to the more reasonable answer time and time again.

Use of Alone Time:

  • ESFP’s may utilize this time to reflect upon their own emotions and figure themselves out. This looks like the aesthetically angsty side tumblr.
  • ESTP’s may utilize this time to solve issues they’ve seen arise around them. This usually resembles the jarring discourse side of tumblr.

Eyes:

  • ESFP’s have a shade of intensity permeated by selected focus and a soft cunning.
  • ESTP’s have a shade of intensity permeated by an indifferent attentiveness and muted passion.

Life Choices:

  • ESFP’s could be so much better. Try every once in a while and you could be on another level entirely.
  • ESTP’s could be so much better. Try every once in a while and you could be on another level entirely.

THANK YOU SO MUCH QUQ IM STILL DRUNK WITH CAFFEINE RN

The Wicker House

Submitted by: Shadowswimmer77

Length: Super long

Of course everyone claiming residence in Arthur’s Wake knows tales associated with the Wicker House. It seems that every small province plays host to some structure of ill repute which, as if by supernatural magnetism, draws rumor of ghosts and bogies, wrapping the timber and stone of its foundation in a shroud of darkness and horror. In Arthur’s Wake, the Wicker House fills this odious task.

Scant days after arriving in town, while taking the time to familiarize myself with the local watering hole and its residents, I became introduced to the well known superstitions surrounding the Wicker House. As a man of science, I knew any truths to be found in these outlandish stories were likely embellished to points unrecognizable. Nothing was first hand; all experiences were from a friend who knew a fellow who may have seen something. It is the provincial mind which transforms wild dogs into wolves that walk like men and interprets astronomical phenomena as harbingers of certain doom. 

Still, my curiosity sufficiently piqued, I endeavored to better inform myself upon the subject through more objective means. To my great surprise, while failing to confirm the more supernatural claims of the tales, the town records in the basement of the local library did provide aspect to a most sinister reality all their own.

The house was built in 1920 by the millionaire Tomas Wicker who, in addition to being both a successful oil prospector and fishing magnate, was by all accounts completely insane. No one knows what first drew Wicker to Arthur’s Wake. Some speculate this as the first outward sign of his impending madness. What is known was that the foundations of the house which would come to assume his name were poured almost immediately upon his arrival.
