apparently atwas is #10 when you sort by kudos on ao3 now???? i’m shook??? shaken???? stirred??? when did this happen?? thank you to everyone who read that fic <3 <3 <3 <3 :D :D :D :D my gratitude is as abound as Victor’s extraness™ in that fic
Recently, I was given a silly fanfiction prompt (which I don’t believe has ever happened before), and I actually quite enjoyed writing it. Would anyone out there in the ether be interested in providing me a few more? Dragon Age-themed, of course, but beyond that, I am open to most things, whether Solas-centric or otherwise.
Though of course, in the spirit of this blog, Solas shenanigans would be ideal.
I just feel like writing this evening, and would love an idea or two.
what’s so frustrating is how the entire world is silent right now. especially these fucking celebrities and the media who all speak up when there’s a tragedy in America or Paris etc. but are MUTE right now on everything going on in Aleppo. Why are people turning a blind eye? this is a genocide. a crime against ALL of humanity. is it because it’s muslims being killed that no one wants to speak up? and at the same time its so mind-blowing how none of the other muslim leaders in the world seem to be doing anything to help their brothers and sisters in Aleppo. the world is silent while innocent people are being killed.
your hogwarts house is more important than your name
so vast?? so old??? scary, kind of.
really old classic fics
used to have ship wars like all hell, and kind of still does??? but not really??? it’s better now
every other fandom has a harry potter au.
split into different sects that are practically whole different fandoms. there’s the marauders fandom, the golden trio/canon era fandom, the fantastic beasts fandom, the next gen fandom – they’re all like little umbrella fandoms under one great big potter net.
no one’s favorite character is harry potter.
they don’t talk about the cursed child.
will never die.
holy shIT this fandom is a minefield
a lot of teenagers??? like??? a lot???
an alarming amount of smut fic
i dont know a lot of this fandom is really immature and there are so many ship wars?? like???
ignoring actual historical material in favor of coddling your favorite character
the dub is one of the most quotable things i’ve ever seen
hetalia is very much a starter anime. a lot of people get into this anime as like a gateway drug and grow out of the fandom later on.
lots of bad fic, with rare absolute GEMS thrown in.
some fics are beautifully researched, intricate, historically accurate, and amazing. so much potential for fic in this fandom.
the main character is jean valjean
much of the fandom does not realize this.
les amis are love, les amis are life. jean valjean?? who??? javert??? who’s that?? fantine????? WHO THE FC U K
emerges from the deep once every few years when a movie or something else comes out.
The Movie Musical shot the fandom to new heights and launched a new era, but now has mostly calmed down???
also will never die. been around since 1862 and still going strong.
used to be eponine stans (eppyboppers) who hated cosette??? and usually shipped eponine with marius or enjolras. thank god that’s over.
literally everyone ships E/R.
even the actors ship E/R.
sO MUCH GREAT FIC
oikawa tooru is universally adored
pretty much everyone ships the same things?? like obviously not, and there are so many great character dynamics and rarepairs, but ships like bokuaka, iwaoi, kagehina, etc. are so ingrained in the actual canon that everyone ships them a LITTLE bit, even if you ship the character different ways too.
you can ship anyone with anyone. literally. go fuckin wild.
everyone has normal hair except for the one owl guy.
YOU SHOULD HAVE COME TO SHIRATORIZAWA
Yuri!! on Ice
EVERYONE SHIPS VICTUURI. IT IS AN ACTUAL CANON GAY SHIP AND IT IS GOLDEN.
at this point 90% of the fandom is just screaming over any new content they get b/c it’s all so great.
everyone under 20 gets shipped with yurio, and every one of these ships is somehow controversial.
fandom swings back and forth between wanting JJ to die in a fire or being ready to protect him to the ends of the earth.
sala or sara??? nobody can decide??? (spoiler alert: it’s sara, that’s a real italian name, sala is the word for living room.)
even the people who despise the dub can’t hate it THAT much
at one point the fandom hated chris, but now he’s just kind of the weird overly sexual uncle at the family barbecue
fanon mccree: HIGH NOON, huge flirt, doesnt take anything seriously, goofy cowboy, arrogant, trying to impress other people all the time, rolling tumbleweed man
canon mccree: suffers from ptsd after joining a dangerous gang as a fucking child, and moving on to join blackwatch in his late teens and at some point losing his entire arm, is an extremely dangerous gunslinger/vigilante wanted for millions of dollars, suffers from alcoholism and depression, has terrible self esteem and self-destructive habits, lost his friends and mentors and has been alone on the run for half a decade
It’s been exactly a month since episode 10 of Yuri!!! on Ice aired and our darling prince Otabek Altin was introduced to the anime, which gave birth to the Otayuri ship. I am so, so proud that in this one month, we have collectively built an Otayuri empire with hundreds and hundreds of fic, artwork and just content in general! Thank you all so much for being in this fandom with me and making it absolutely magical!
To commemorate our one month anniversary, I decided to break down and record just exactly how much screen time Otayuri got in the anime…
5:11-5:19 (8 seconds) - Otabek notices Yuri standing in the corner after turning down JJ’s offer to have dinner together. Yuri aggressively reacts by calling Otabek an asshole and asks him what he’s looking at. Otabek just turns around and walks away. Yuri looks after him with a look of bewilderment.
9:39-10:15 (34 seconds) - Yuri is hiding in an alleyway from his fans. Otabek appears and tells Yuri to get on the motorcycle while Yuri looks freaked out. Yuri realizes who Otabek is and Yuri’s fans find him in the alleyway. Otabek asks Yuri if he’s coming or not. Yuri stares at Otabek. He then gets on the motorcycle and Otabek drives away while Yuri’s fans take pictures. Yuri looks up at the sky, probably wondering about Otabek and his intentions. The news that the hero of Kazakhstan “kidnapped” the Russian Fairy goes viral.
10:15-11:41 (1 minute 26 seconds) - Otabek and Yuri walk up the stairs to the top of a beautiful structure. Otabek tells Yuri about their shared past and his own past. He tells Yuri that he thinks that Yuri has “the eyes of a soldier.” Yuri shares some of his own past in return. Yuri asks Otabek why he came and approached him. Otabek tells Yuri that he just thought that they were alike. He then asks Yuri if he’s going to become friends with him or not. Yuri looks shocked. However, Otabek and Yuri eventually clasp and shake hands, while being bathed in the Barcelona sunset.
15:01-15:03 (2 seconds) - Mari and Minako-sensei spot Otabek and Yuri having tea together, and they watch through the shop window as Yuri speaks enthusiastically to Otabek and Otabek listens fondly with a small smile on his face.
15:13-15:14 (1 second) - Otabek and Yuri are shown sitting next to one another during the group gathering.
15:19-15:22 (3 seconds) - Yuri turns to Otabek and asks with a look of disgust why they all had to get together.
17:58-18:02 (4 seconds) - Otabek and Yuri walk away from JJ side by side.
14:53-14:55 (2 seconds) - Yuri yells “davai!” at
and Otabek responds with a thumbs up.
15:45-16:02 (17 seconds) - Otabek reminisces about his time training at Yakov’s summer camp in St. Petersburg and his impression of young Yuri.
15:45-15:47 (2 seconds) - When Sara mentions how Otabek is different now, the shot pans to Yuri and zooms in on his face.
16:16-16:19 (3 seconds) - Yuri looks shocked and then impressed by Otabek’s triple axel, his lips curling up into a smirk.
16:26-16:28 (2 seconds) - After watching Otabek complete his quad toe loop flawlessly, Yuri smirks and says “heh…?”
17:38-17:39 (1 second) - Yuri utters a happy little “yeah” after seeing Otabek’s score.
17:10-17:13 (3 seconds) - Otabek shouts “davai!” to Yuri, and Yuri responds with a thumbs up.
19:49-19:50 (1 second) - Otabek claps while watching Yuri’s free skate, a small smile on his face.
Total: 2 minutes 48 seconds
Y’all. WE BUILT A FUCKING EMPIRE OFF OF 2 MINUTES 48 SECONDS OF SCREENTIME??? THAT’S LITERALLY SO AMAZING HOLY SHIT??? I AM SO FUCKING PROUD OF US!!! LET’S KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK!!! <3
I see your “stone butch” Jasper and raise you a high femme Jasper. Them filled in, perfect brows. That eyeliner, perfectly winged. The cape for extra drama. You can’t tell me, given the chance, she wouldn’t slather herself in glitter and wear ridiculously fabulous gowns to casual events.
Her body may be what is considered more masc but her soul certainly ain’t.
