How's life in another fandom going for you? I'm thinking about doing the same thing, since everyone is dead in here but idk....

wtf what are you saying,, there are like 3 people still active in here!!!

k jokes aside
i didnt realize that being a part of a fandom can be this good honestly :) besides all the fangirling, everyone is so nice and friendly and its just so chill between us? i met some awesome people already and one post i made got like 900+ notes in 24 hours… its just easier in there with many things, of course a lot of people are just stupid (like in every fandom, especially this big), but im really enjoying myself and im honestly happy, they make me happy in the way th didnt in a while, sad to admit but thats true

idk what to tell you, you just have to try to find something you feel passionate about and if its not tokio hotel for you anymore, thats fine too, people change, you can find something else to ‘fill the void’

I love how leisure the makers are with the fact that Hiccup has a prosthetic. They joke around with it and can gesture to it without awkwardness, which definitely lightens the mood and makes you forget that the reason Hiccup has the leg is the result of a painful, terrifying, and near-death climax in his life. :D

What I appreciate the most about how Hiccup’s leg is handled is that there is a sense of balance.

Sometimes we hit incredibly serious moments. Hiccup realizes his leg is missing and stares in shock at what has happened. He stands, flinches at the pain, and nearly topples over. Toothless has to be a support to carry Hiccup out. Later, in Gift of the Night Fury, Hiccup slips often on the prosthetic, and grumbles to himself “stupid leg.” When Snotlout tries to make jokes about the leg in Riders and Defenders of Berk, Hiccup calls this out as inappropriate. This is a real injury with a real impact in Hiccup’s life, and it’s not dismissed or turned aside as a non-problem.

Sometimes we hit really silly moments. As you bring up, the jokes about the prosthetic are upbeat, mood-lightening, and all in good fun. Ruffnut and Tuffnut saying Hiccup is on his “last leg” in “The Zippleback Experience” is a really funny and clever joke. Even watching Hiccup lose all his legs was treated as something amusing. Hiccup’s missing leg has become a part of day-to-day life, and it does not have to be treated in constant tragedy. It’s simply a part of who he is - something normal, not something glowing with horrific stigma.

Sometimes we get really awesome moments. We see Hiccup build an amazing prosthetic leg by HTTYD 2. Hiccup can run, jump, fly dragons, and fight enemies despite having a missing limb. We do not forget that Hiccup has lost his leg, but his missing limb is not treated as a barrier. The story of HTTYD 2 doesn’t focus on “overcoming his disability,” but it’s treated as something to which he’s successfully adapted. He even makes casual comments about the peg leg himself by HTTYD 2. He can still go about and be an amazing hero without a foot, which is really nice and cool to see on screen.

Altogether, then, Hiccup’s leg is not dismissed as nothing. The leg loss truly was a big, painful event. But it’s not something that bogged him down into limitations forever - he learned how to adapt. His life continued forth into many wonderful things. And it’s simply a part of his day-to-day life that he has to have a spare leg, and that there might be the occasional silly but harmless joke. As you say, the writers can joke around with the leg and gesture to it without awkwardness. I do quite like how it’s handled, too. XD

OMG EMMA SO I WAS READING YOUR POST ON HOW YOU SAID THAT YOU LOVE THE IDEA OF NERD!DEREK AND JOCK!DEREK COMBINED INTO ONE (/post/134741804795/derek-is-canonically-a-jock-right-right-but) AND OHMYGOD I HAVE SO MANY FEELINGS!! Esp the bit where you wrote about Derek curling up in Laura's lap and eating ice cream and watching Firefly because he's pining over Stiles who is in love with Lydia and OHMYGOD I NEED A FIC EMMA I NEED A FIC cont-

I mean, I can TOTALLY imagine:“I mean, I get it, you know? Lydia Martin is gorgeous. She’s beautiful. Everyone wants to be with her. I get it. I mean, why would someone like Stiles even like me, right?” Derek asks, feeling utterly miserable as he scoops another spoonful of chocolate ice cream into his mouth. Laura furrows her eyebrows disapprovingly, frowning down at the back of her little brother’s head, even as the latter’s eyes are glued to the TV.

Her fingers are gently carding through his dark hair and she says, a little protective and defensive note in her voice, “What do you even mean by that? Someone like you? Look, you are an idiot sometimes, but you’re objectively very attractive, okay?”Derek rolls his eyes, shifting his head’s position on Laura’s lap, his cheek mashed against her thigh. “Thanks, Laur. I feel better now.” Laura rolls her eyes and knocks her knuckles against his skull; Derek winces.

“Don’t you sass me, you little shit.” But then she takes another look at her little brother. His head on her lap, hands clutching the spoon and bucket of ice cream like a lifeline, his eyes glued to the TV even though Laura’s not even sure he’s actually watching it. She traces light circles on his temple with her thumb and her expression softens. Derek may be a sassy little shit, but he’s still her brother and Laura loves him.

“Look, Der. All jokes and insults aside, I really do think that you’re a great person. You’re nice. I know you like to pretend in front of all of us that you’re this badass rebel but please. I see you helping old Mrs. Hamilton with her groceries, okay? You care about other people. You’re funny. You’re awesome.” Derek stays silent, but Laura can tell he’s listening intently to every word she says, clinging onto her every word.

“You deserve someone who loves you for who you are, okay? And if this Stiles boy can’t see it, then it’s his loss.” Derek is still quiet for a few moments, but then he reaches up and gives Laura’s fingers a gentle squeeze. “Thanks, Laur.”“Anytime, bro.” Laura smiles softly.“You’re still annoying, though.” Derek teases and Laura can hear the smile in his voice.

“You’re an idiot.” Laura gives him another knock on the back of his head and can’t help the way her lips curve up in a fond smile at Derek’s protests.

(Of course, Laura later finds out from Erica that Stiles is so ridiculously into Derek and she rolls her eyes and is not at all surprised at her brother’s idiocy. He may excel at sports and he has unbelievably good grades but ohmygod he’s so dense when it comes to Stiles.) //END (OHMYGOD this was long, sorry for spamming your ask! u.u) 

OKAY, BUT YOU JUST WROTE THE FIC.

IN THIS HIGH SCHOOL AU ARE STILES AND ERICA BESTIES?? (Please tell me they are.) IS STILES CURLED UP ON ERICA’S LAP AND IS SHE STROKING HIS HAIR AND TRYING TO CHEER HIM UP WITH PORN AND THE NEW DILDO SHE BOUGHT? “YOU CAN PRETEND IT’S DEREK’S DICK! I’LL LOAN IT TO YOU!” “WHY ARE YOU MY BEST FRIEND AGAIN??” *he asks as he takes the dildo from her* 

Do Laura and Erica meddle? (I bet they meddle.) How do they do it? OH OH OH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! OKAY, BUT LIKE. MAYBE DEREK REALLY LOVES TO SWIM? AND ONE NIGHT (BECAUSE HE ALWAYS USES THE POOL WHEN NO ONE IS AROUND, BECAUSE HE LIKES THE PEACE OF THE WATER) STILES SHOWS UP- IN NOTHING HIT HIS SWIMMING SHORTS I MIGHT ADD- CALLING OUT FOR ERICA. (WHO IS SO OBVIOUSLY NOT THERE BUT STILES THINKS HE WAS MEETING HER FOR A LITTLE LATE NIGHT LET’S BREAK THE SCHOOL RULES THING.) 

And Derek actually getting really embarrassed and hiding in the water, watching as Sties paces up and down the pool side and, fuck, who knew Stiles was actually really really toned? (This is not helping Derek get over him at all) 

Right, and because I suck because I am in the middle of avoiding uni work and should get back to it, I don’t know how it happens, you decide, BUT STILES ENDS UP IN THE POOL WITH DEREK AND MAYBE KISSING GOES ON, YEAH??? 

GIVE ME ALL THE POOL KISSES. GIVE ME DEREK KIND OF SHAKING AS STILES THROWS HIS ARMS AROUND HIS NECK AND STILES GRINNING WHEN DEREK SPLASHES HIM. 

GIVE ME DEREK PRESSING STILES AGAINST THE POOL WALL AND KISSING HIM LIKE HIS LIFE DEPENDS ON IT, EVEN THOUGH HE IS TERRIFIED THIS MIGHT BE THE ONLY TIME HE EVER GETS TO DO THIS WITH STILES. 

GIVE ME STILES SHYLY CONFESSING HE HAS NEVER KISSED ANYONE BEFORE. (Okay, except that one time with Erica but it was for science and they both couldn’t stop giggling afterwards so he doesn’t know if it counts or not.)

AND OF COURSE THERE WILL BE AWKWARD BONERS IN SWIM SHORTS. 

AND THEN MAYBE MILKSHAKES AFTER WHICH WERE SOMEHOW SITTING CONVENIENTLY ON THE TOP OF STILES’ JEEP WHEN THEY BOTH EMERGE FROM SWIMMING A FEW HOURS LATER, HOLDING HANDS??

Pickup Lines

Summary: Reader x Dean. Dean tries to stump the reader who is the self-proclaimed champion of anti-pickup lines with the cheesiest, cringeworthy lines he can think of.

“There’s no way. I’m sorry (Y/N), but no matter how quick-witted you are, you don’t have a reply to every single pickup line thrown at you,” Dean said as he shook his head. Denying the statement that left your lips where you were seated on the comfortable couch of the bunker.

“I so do, have you not seen all the guys wandering away with their tails between their legs whenever we stop by a bar? I am the undisputed master of anti-pick up lines!” You said proudly, crossing your arms in front of you. Your lips spreading into a wide grin as Dean shook his head at you.

“No way, you’re smart, but even the smartest person gets stumped from time to time. I bet you 20 dollars I could think of a pick up line that’ll leave you speechless. Or at least without a smart reply, a simple go fuck yourself doesn’t count,” Dean said, raising his beer at you. “I’m pretty sure I wouldn’t even have to get creative,”

I am not a pretentious musical theatre person, I will be the first to admit that I know every word to Legally Blonde The Musical, and I LOVE a good farce/restoration comedy/anything of that sort.

I don’t just want Fun Home to win because it’s sad, I want it to win because the writing is fucking awesome. Reading the novel and then listening to the musical and seeing what they did with it is genius.

Aside from it breaking the laws of commercial theatre, being a musical written by two fantastic female theatre minds, is lead by a queer woman, builds on the dialogue about women in the theatre….

It’s a really freakin good show!

In 5 years, there will be another Something Rotten! It is a good time, has funny jokes, songs that have references that we can all pat ourselves on the back for noticing, and well… Christian Borle’s biceps.

What Fun Home can do is show producers that we can have shows with women on stage, written by women that can be popular and profitable. And we will get more of them.

But all of that aside, it is a fuckin great musical that is super cute and sad and just really well written.

Do witches really exist? Like in the sense that someone does a curse to kill someone and it happens. Witches with actual magic like you read about? Thanks!

I sure hope so, otherwise I’m out of a job!

All joking aside, yes we exist. It’s not as glamorous as you see in the movies but it’s still pretty awesome. You’re welcome to read our FAQ or read through these resources for a deeper look into witchcraft.
