also i've always loved this bit

anonymous asked:

Could you do prompt 5 for Han and Leia? I'm loving these!!

#5 “Well. Yell, scream, say something. Anything.”

Mid-ROTJ. Obviously a bit AU. References this a bit, also maybe the end of this. Very very mild allusions to sexual violence at the end. 

In retrospect they might have predicted it if they were paying closer attention, but one of them was pretty ill at the time and none of them were particularly attuned to reading hair for cues. And she was always a bit odd about her hair, anyway – something religious, something about modesty, something about being unmarried or never having had sex – well in retrospect in probably wasn’t that – no one really  knew, though, and certainly no one was going to ask.

angel0sh  asked:

How would RFA + saeran + V react to MC suddenly being really cold to them and while crying secretly for a week before they discover that everyone ( including them ) forgot her birthday ? She doesn't tell them hoping they remember but they never do tell a bartender at their favorite bar tell get happy birthday. I LOVE your writing and I've been stalking you blog instead of sleeping ^^

I changed the original request up juuuust a little bit to make it more interesting and character fitting. I hope that is alright. Also, this one really inspired me for some reason so this shit right here is long. I hope you enjoy it :3

|| REQUEST ARE (ALWAYS) OPEN!! ||


Zen

♬ Zen is a very busy man

♬ especially once his filming career starts about a year and a half after you started dating

♬ shortly after your two year anniversary it’s time for your birthday to roll around

♬ you’re very excited for it

♬ last year you’d celebrated it together and while it hadn’t been a grant party, it had been amazing fun nevertheless

♬ Zen had gotten you a pretty necklace with a little Z hanging from it

♬ you cherished it a lot

♬ the sex had also been great

♬ like really great

♬ but moving on

♬ you were wondering what he had planned for this year

♬ you didn’t really expect much, no big gift or party, just a little attention and maybe a small gesture of love

♬ honestly, you would have been happy with roses or chocolates

♬ when nothing came, you felt hurt

♬ you understood that he was busy, but he was such an attentive guy

♬ why did he stop?

♬ what really ticked you off though was when he came home from shooting the next day

♬ he still hadn’t mentioned nor remembered your birthday

♬ but he told you that Echo Girl had apologized and invited him for drinks

♬ no intention but making up what she did to you

♬ you were fuming about it, but bit the anger down

♬ maybe he had a surprise planned? Maybe this was a trick to get you to your favourite bar?

♬ it wasn’t

♬ he actually went to get drinks with Echo Girl and you weren’t even invited

♬ after that you just kind of give him the cold shoulder

♬ it’s not like you want to be mean to him and hurt his feelings, but you can’t help yourself

♬ he really hurt yours

♬ being busy with filming it takes him a while to catch on, even with you spending basically 24/7 in the same general area (meaning the set and at home)

♬ about a week after your birthday he actually suggests going to your favourite bar

♬ despite still being a little man, you accept

♬ when you get there you’re greeted with a warm smile

♬ your usual bartender – Beak Seung Jo – is there again

♬ he even goes as far as to walk around the counter and pull you into a warm hug

♬ Zen is confused as to what is going on while you just return the hug, chuckling

♬ he wishes you a happy birthday and you can physically sense Zen freeze next to you

♬ Seung Jo meanwhile apologizes for being late with his congratulations and tells you that drinks are on the house

♬ the rest of the evening Zen is strangely silent and gloomy and you think to yourself that it suits him right for forgetting your birthday like that

♬ on the way home he tells you to go ahead, that he’ll catch up

♬ you’re confused but agree

♬ when he comes home about an hour later it’s with a huge bouquet of your favourite flowers, a box from Jaehee’s cafe which you know means it’s a cake

♬ and a delicious one at that, and a small silk box

♬ he kneels before you and hands you the flowers almost like a sacrifice

♬ you can’t help chuckling at his silly gesture, taking the flowers and smelling them happily

♬ while you enjoy your flowers he unpacks the cake, already ready with a huge I’m so sorry I forgot your birthday, Princess written on top of it

♬ he chose to go with one candle, one of those silly electronic ones that sing

♬ he actually sings along and it’s the first time that someone singing Happy Birthday isn’t awkward

♬ after that he hands you the small silk box

♬ it’s not a ring – he’s still preparing to pop the question to you – but a beautiful bracelet to match the necklace

♬ he admits to having ordered it weeks ago, but having completely forgotten about it

♬ you feel bad for ever having been mad at him in the first place

♬ Zen would never really forget about you or your birthday

♬ you kiss him then, cake and flowers forgotten

♬ the two of you can still eat that later on

♬ Zen carries you to the bed you share and you make love for hours

Yoosung

★ getting his eye surgery was a big deal

★ he’d waited very long for an appointment at the hospital

★ starting about a month before the surgery he took on especially many patients

★ he wanted to take care of everyone before having to close the clinic for a while

★ he just couldn’t work on delicate, sweet pets while healing up from his own surgery

★ it just wouldn’t be fair to the cute animals he vowed to protect and treat

★ you loved him for all the effort he put into his work

★ he was devoted to both his job and you, despite his young age

★ a weak before his surgery it was your birthday

★ the last four years those had been spent rather comfortably, mostly

★ that was just your style

★ he would wake you up to breakfast in bed – yes, he is one of those attentive men

★ then the two of you cuddled up on the couch, he’d worked through some files while you read

★ when it was time for lunch he’d taken you out for a picnic he’d prepared himself

★ after that you would have gone home to play some video games together

★ and for dinner he’d taken you to your favourite restaurant

★ you’d hoped that this year would be similar

★ you liked your birthday being laid back and between the two of you

★ however, none of these things happened this year

★ which honestly, you were fine with as well

★ the surgery was around the corner, Yoosung was very stressed and despite having matured a lot he was still very scared of it, understandably so

★ so you had an understanding for the fact that possible plans might fall flat

★ not even wishing you a Happy Birthday, however, wasn’t okay at all

★ you’d promised one another you’d always be attentive, even during stressful times

★ still, you didn’t want to overreact, so you told yourself to wait a day or two

★ a week and the surgery went by and he still didn’t seem to remember

★ that is something you couldn’t get over even with the situation you were in

★ you found yourself keeping Yoosung at arms length, focusing on work instead of him

★ he attempted to ask you what the problem was a couple of times, but you said it was fine

★ after another couple of days he asked you whether you wanted to go have dinner again

★ now that his eye was getting better you had a reason to celebrate, right?
it felt like a stab in the heart

★ there had been another reason to celebrate, but he’d forgotten!

★ still, you agree of course

★ he’d risked his life and gone half blind for you

★ the least you could do was celebrate him regaining his eye-sight

★ so you make your way to your favourite restaurant

★ a small cozy place that specialized in noodles and you know the owners of

★ a young, nice man called Bong Joon-gu and his wife, Chris

★ in fact, the second you step in he asks Yoosung about his eye before turning to you

★ he clasps your hands and shook them, wishing you a very happy and sadly belated birthday

★ Chris joins in soon after, hugging you and promising that today the food is on the house

★ meanwhile Yoosung facepalms himself next to you

★ ah, so he finally recalls that he forgot your birthday

★ Good

★ the two of you take your seats and the second Joon-gu disappears into the kitchen and Chris goes to tend to another guest he turns to you

★ Yoosung actually looks like he might start crying any second now

★ you want to laugh but keep on a stern face, crossing your arms over your chest

★ pay back was only fair, let him simmer a little

★ …man, you really should stop hanging out with Seven

★ his sadism was obviously affecting you somehow

★ Yoosung apologizes about a million times in the matter of the hour and the half you spend there

★ he also promises to make it up to you

★ which he does come the next day

★ when he brings you your breakfast in bed next morning he’s dressed like a butler

★ you chuckle and ask him what the deal is

★ he tells you that he is your loyal servant for the day, answering to your every wish

★ well if that is so…

★ after breakfast you go shopping, letting him carry the bags

★ you let him pay for ice cream and then for the fair you go to

★ the last attraction you go on is the ferris wheel

★ it is night now and the stars are beautiful once you reach the top

★ you thank him for your wonderful birthday, even if it was late

★ then you share a tender kiss with the start and moon shining above you

Jaehee

♨ Jaehee is not the type of person to forget anything, let alone a birthday

♨ she has a calender just for birthday’s

♨ yours is marked especially fat just in case

♨ you find that extremely adorable

♨ and it works too!

♨ since you’ve gotten to know each other five years ago she never once forgot your birthday

♨ before you started dating officially you usually spent them on the coach, watching Zen’s plays and stuffing yourself with popcorn

♨ her birthday you planned her an entire ‘girly day’ since she’d never had one of those

♨ you got a manicure, went shopping, got your make-up done and even went for a bubble tea after

♨ so, it was safe to say that you spend your birthday’s together

♨ especially once you finally did get together and there were new components to add

♨ suddenly you could cuddle and kiss

♨ make out on the couch and then move the private party to the bedroom

♨ despite living and working together there wasn’t much time for intimacy for the two of you, so you cherished every moment you could get

♨ you knew that your birthday meant funday so you were especially excited for it

♨ it had been a while

♨ the café was very successful and kept both of you busy

♨ too busy to indulge in some adult activities you wanted more of

♨ Jaehee also always got you the sweetest and most considerate gifts

♨ like she’d legit a gift pro

♨ they aren’t anything over the top or overly expensive but always sweet, thoughtful and sentimental

♨ this year, however, there was an issue in the bakery

♨ about two weeks before your birthday a huge order came in

♨ someone was planning a big celebration and they needed a bunch of cakes and pies

♨ as you’ve already established, you suck at baking

♨ meaning that Jaehee is on her own with that order

♨ you try to take some of the work load of her shoulder by managing the café on your own for the time being while she was mostly in the back preparing all the cakes and pies for the order

♨ the celebration came and went and so did your birthday

♨ completely unnoticed by Jaehee

♨ while you understood it still kind of hurt and so you found yourself acting somewhat cold and distant

♨ Jahee didn’t like that at all, heart sinking at the reminder of her time working under Jumin

♨ she thinks long and hard about what might have caused it, but doesn’t figure it out until a day later

♨ one of your regulars – Oh Ha Ni – comes into the café with a small cake in her hands

♨ Jaehee is confused, since she usually buys her cakes at your café

♨ however she gets her answer soon as the young woman bends over the counter to ask Jaehee in a whisper where you are

♨ she explains that she’d been so busy the last week, she hadn’t been able to come and congratulate you on your birthday

♨ it was like a slap to the face for Jaehee

♨ someone you barely had any relationship to remembered your birthday and she didn’t

♨ she told Ha Ni where you were and watched her go to the back to give you your cake and hug you

♨ that night Jaehee asked you to go home alone, telling you that she had business to take care of

♨ you were disappointed, since you knew that she now knew that she’d forgotten your birthday

♨ you really wanted to know how she felt, but Jaehee was still shy of expressing herself

♨ what exactly she’d spent the night with you found out the next morning

♨ as you walk into the café the next morning without Jaehee having returned home for the night you worry

♨ you look for her only to find her in the bag

♨ in front of her a huge, white wedding cake

♨ you greet her and she smiles at you tiredly

♨ she wishes you a happy birthday, putting a small candle on top of the huge cake

♨ you’re perplexed, this is obviously a wedding cake

♨ your questions are soon answered when she pulls out a box with two golden rings inside

♨ both of you know that you can’t get married legally, but the rings are a promise nevertheless

♨ you cry for a long time after slipping the rings onto each others fingers

♨ hen the two of you feed each other the cake

Jumin

♛ he loves to throw you the biggest parties

♛ everyone from the RFA is invited as well as many of Jumin’s business partners and your friends and family

♛ he mostly throws those huge parties to parade you around

♛ he is very proud of you and wants everyone to know that

that and the fact that you are his, of course

♛ he’ll shower you in presents, everything from sweet and small to huge and extravagant

♛ you are his world and he wants to make sure you have everything you could possibly wish for

♛ the best part of your birthday happens after the party, though

♛ sometimes you’ll sit down with a glass of wine each and talk until late at night

♛ other times you’d cuddle up on the coach before the warm fire and just enjoy each other’s embrace

♛ usually it ended with the two of you having passionate sex for a long time after

♛ in short; your birthday is the best day in the entire year

♛ or at least it was until this birthday

♛ two days before the actual date Jumin tells you he has a business trip to attend to

♛ you ask him whether he really has to go, to which he merely replies with of course

♛ at first you think that he might be planning a surprise party, but that doesn’t turn out to be the case

♛ even the RFA chat seems somewhat deserted

♛ and no one even congratulates you, not even Jumin himself

♛ on top of that he’s on a business trip and you’re not even by his side

♛ in breaks your heart and you cry yourself to sleep that night

♛ the next morning he calls and you answer excitedly

♛ secretly you were hoping that he remembered after all

♛ instead he announces that the business trip will take a couple of days longer, then he has to hang up

♛ the following two nights you cry again, unbeknownst to anyone but the cat

♛ or at least you thought so

♛ as it turns out one of the maids did hear you sob, and she actually asks to call Mr. Han about it

♛ he’s irritated at first – how dare lowly staff interrupt this important meeting – until she explains to him why she called in the first place

♛ she also tells him that no one should be alone on their birthday like you were

♛ then she hangs up, leaving a baffled and shocked Jumin behind

♛ oh God, he’d actually forgotten the most important thing on his to do list

♛ he instantly cut the meeting short and booked the first flight back home

♛ when he entered the apartment he could actually hear your sobs for himself and it tore him apart

♛ he quietly makes his way to the bedroom where he goes on his knees beside the bed to gently brush through your hair

♛ that gets your attention and you look up with swollen, watery eyes

♛ you’re just glad he’s back home, throwing your arms around his neck

♛ he holds you close, expression still pained

♛ his ignorance had cause you misery and he needed to make that up to you

♛ the next day he announces a one week vacation, something shocking even his father and you

♛ he uses that vacation to devote every second of every day to you

♛ you spend your days at the beach on some private island you can’t recall the of

♛ when you return home you both have a nice tan and an even closer and more devoted relationship

Saeyoung/Seven

☼ Seven is the kind of guy to show you affection in seemingly minimal ways

☼ he won’t go and plan a huge party or anything

☼ but he’ll always make you a gift for your birthday

☼ every single one of them

☼ and those gifts aren’t just little bird houses type of gifts

☼ they are miniature robots for you to play with kind of gifts

☼ one year he actually programmed an entire game for you to play

☼ that way you wouldn’t get bored when he was busy working

☼ you liked it best that way

☼ after all the excitement the two of you went through, you both need the calm

☼ especially since you still have work to care for, the RFA party’s to plan and Saeran to keep an eye on

☼ when your birthday came around you were already looking forward to it

☼ Seven’s gifts were unbeatable and you were excited to see what he’d come up with this time

☼ you still cherished the cat, constantly played his game and loved to go out with the dog he’d made you

☼ but shortly before your birthday Seven began locking himself away in his room with work

☼ he couldn’t even tell you what he was working on

☼ top secret stuff, apparently

☼ you didn’t bug him about it

☼ you knew how his work could get sometimes, so you let him take care of it

☼ however when he didn’t even come out for your birthday, not even to congratulate you, you felt hurt

☼ it wasn’t even that you didn’t get a gift

☼ it wasn’t about that

☼ you just wanted some warmth and love

☼ days passed and Seven didn’t even acknowledge having missed it

☼ so he’d forgotten!

☼ you were pretty angry and most of your conversations were distant and cut short

☼ he eventually asked you what the problem was but you just told him that he was clever enough to figure it out on his own

☼ especially considering he could recite whole wikipedia pages about cars to you

☼ after that you’d kind of stormed out for a quick walk to cool yourself down

☼ maybe you were overreacting, but you couldn’t help yourself

☼ Saeran who’d been sitting at the kitchen table beside the two of you just snorted

☼ “I can’t believe you forgot her birthday like that. Moron.”

☼ Seven froze

☼ FUUUUUUUU

☼ after that he disappeared in his room for another couple of days and you started feeling homicidal

☼ Saeran had actually suggested getting you a pickaxe to get through the door

☼ you’d politely declined, no matter how tempting the offer

☼ when he finally came out, it was with your phone in hand

☼ when he handed it to you there was an App opened you’d never seen before

☼ “It’s a special game. I managed to copy some of my conscience into digital format and built it into the game. Whenever I’m being an idiot or not attentive enough you can open the game and talk to me there. It’s just like the RFA chat, only with me and the others paying more attention to you.”

☼ he chuckled nervously as you stared down at the app, pressing through the different options

☼ it was such a cute idea and you couldn’t imagine how much effort he must have put into it

☼ you smile down at your phone, a message popping up

☼ it was 707 asking you whether you’d eaten yet

☼ you laugh

☼ “Oh yeah, I programmed it to ask you that at least three times a day, just to make sure!”

Saeran

☀ he isn’t really the celebration type of guy

☀ not even when you eventually get together

☀ he even hates celebrating his own birthday

☀ most because he feels it isn’t just ‘his day’ and therefor nothing special

☀ there is also this huge insecurity and lack of self worth issues Rika cause

☀ so really, any group of people making too much attention to him make him uncomfortable

☀ that isn’t to say that you didn’t try to celebrate his birthday

☀ but when you first tried to give him a cake he denied it

☀ flat out said he didn’t want it

☀ so when your birthday came around you really didn’t expect anything

☀ honestly Saeran didn’t really have anything planned either

☀ until Saeyoung told everyone else in the chat and Saeran got an earful

☀ especially Zen seemed rather angry about his lack of interest

☀ he insisted that one must never miss an opportunity to woo a lady

☀ which of course confused Saeran, because you were already his girlfriend, why woo you now?

☀ Zen also had a heart attack, having to be held back to choke the ungrateful little fuck

☀ despite never actually punching Saeren like Zen wanted to, the younger man got the message

☀ birthdays were important to girls

☀ from that moment on he at least tried

☀ they were mostly spent doing mundane things he usually refused to do

☀ you went eating ice cream

☀ once he took you on a romantic walk

☀ and another time he actually agreed to go to a karaoke bar with you

☀ altogether you’d grown to love your simplistic birthday parties over the years

☀ this year you were actually looking forward to it

☀ until the day actually came and he didn’t even mention it

☀ it wasn’t the first time, sometimes he remembered later on in the day and made up for it

☀ this time that didn’t happen, however

☀ the day came and went and just like that

☀ even the rest of the RFA didn’t congratulate you or forced Saeran to act like a proper boyfriend

☀ you felt cold and ignored, especially considering that you didn’t expect much to begin with

☀ that night you rolled together in bed, making yourself small and biting back on tears

☀ Saeran didn’t seem to notice, didn’t even react

☀ until about four days later you heard a whisper in the night

☀ “Did I do something wrong?”

☀ you’re surprised he would ask

☀ “You usually always hold me when we sleep.”

☀ you take a deep breath, closing your eyes for a moment

☀ “I thought you didn’t like it when I touch you.”

☀ he’s silent for a minute, you almost think he fell back asleep

☀ “I miss it now.”

☀ silence again, you don’t dare turn around

☀ “What can I do to make it better?”

☀ “You could not forget my birthday, for a start.”

☀ since you didn’t turn around you cant see him, but you feel a shift beside you

☀ the rest of the night is spent in restless sleep

☀ when you wake up the next morning Saeran isn’t lying beside you

☀ after last night nothing really surprises you

☀ when you get to the kitchen a beautiful breakfast is waiting along with a note

☀ it has a puzzle on it

☀ it doesn’t take you long to solve it while you eat breakfast

☀ it’s coordinates that lead you to your next destination

☀ it turns out to be the ice cream stand you usually go to

☀ when you arrive there the person behind the counter is already expecting you

☀ he hand you a huge sundae with all your favourite flavours, whipped cream and little heart sprinkles

☀ the idea that Saeran actually had to ask the man to put little hearts on the ice makes you smile

☀ there is also another note waiting for you

☀ this time you find yourself walking through the streets for most of it

☀ the GPS of your phone leads you to the bridge you’d first kissed on

☀ the one with the many lockets of lovers attached to it

☀ there is a paper sign attached to the bridge

☀ it points to a specific locket

☀ when you look at it it has both your and his name on it, written neatly inside a heart

☀ you smile at the locked

☀ attached to the sign is the next clue as well as the keys to the locket

☀ as tradition says, you toss them into the water

☀ the next and final step leads you to the karaoke bar he hates going to

☀ you find Saeran standing there, nervously staring at the stage

☀ when you approach him he is surprised to see you

☀ you were quicker than he anticipated

☀ he tells you he was just getting ready to go upstairs…wanted to a sing a song for you

☀ you smile and shake your head, tell him he doesn’t have to

☀ you know he’d suffer through it

☀ he visibly relaxed

☀ he looks to the floor, shyly reaching for your hand to hold it in his

☀ he steals a quick kiss and whispers his birthday wishes into your ear

☀ when you get home that night you hold him again and he practically preens

☀ shortly before you fall asleep he whispers that the song he’s chosen was Memories, my Shawn Mendes

☀ because he cherishes all the memories he made with you

Jihyun/V

📷 V is a very attentive boyfriend

📷 especially after all the abuse he suffered through V

📷 he seeks your attention and love, craves it really

📷 he also does anything and everything in his power to make you happy, fulfill all your wishes

📷 especially on your birthdays

📷 anniversaries are super important to him

📷 so are any holidays, really

📷 but especially birthdays

📷 because it just means that the person had survived another year, not matter how hard it might have been

📷 the two of you had some horribly hard years behind you, so he was double eager to celebrate

📷 he would always take you to the fanciest of days and a day later invite everyone from the RFA

📷 you’d have a private little party, eating sweets and talking about your lives

📷 sometimes you’d even play board games

📷 for bonding, V’d said

📷 usually it ended up with Zen throwing the board game at Jumin after one too many insults

📷 frankly, you found it rather funny

📷 you looked forward to it every year

📷 until the year that you got a phone call stating that Rika had fled the asylum you’d put her in

📷 they assumed she was back on her way to Korea

📷 suddenly the RFA was in an uproar and Rika was everything all of you could think about

📷 security had to be tightened again, as she was once more a threat

📷 Saeran suffered a meltdown and Seven was ready to kill her for it

📷 Rika eventually showed up at your apartment, surprised to find you there

📷 she attempted to attack you, but V managed to stop her before she could harm you

📷 he got her to a hospital and stayed with her

📷 on your birthday a day later he still hadn’t returned, hadn’t called

📷 you felt sad and replaced

📷 there was always that small voice in the back of your head that told you he still loved her more than you

📷 this seemed like proof

📷 when he finally came home the day after he was tired and exhausted

📷 he still constantly returned to the hospital to check on her

📷 despite your wishes not to

📷 many lonely nights were spent crying

📷 eventually Rika was shipped back to Alaska and V returned home for good

📷 there was still tension between the two of you though

📷 mainly because you could barely stand being in the same room with him, doubt crippling you

📷 a couple of days later he came to you, tears in his eyes and voice shaking

📷 he could not stand the idea of being abandoned by you, of losing you

📷 he wanted to know what he’d done wrong, that he’d do better

📷 in that moment you realized that V had given everything for you and a birthday didn’t compare to a life long of love he was willing to share

📷 you hugged him then, both of you crying out your frustrations

📷 when you tell him about your fears of being replaced by Rika, he cannot understand

📷 he tells you that he spent the entire time talking about you

📷 asking for her blessing

📷 telling her to move on like he did

📷 he tells you that she could not compare to you

📷 that you were the light of his life now, his lover, his muse

📷 for the first time since you got together you fully and wholeheartedly believed him

|| REQUEST ARE (ALWAYS) OPEN!! ||


enjoyed the 4800+ words monstrosity? Great! Bonus points for anyone who can tell me what Korean movie based on an shoujo/slice of life anime was referenced in this request! Whoever gets it right earns my undying love and adoration :-*

Noah Fence, but I don't want H's album to be anything remotely like Niall's album. I want them completely different I don't want Harry compared. Also I only know a little bit about Niall bc I've always been here for H but interviews I've seen, don't recall N saying he likes the type of music Harry does-only recall the Eagles it seems after 1D is defunct that he mentions enjoying artists H has. Makes me skeptical. I truly hope Harry is deliciously different 😛

Sceptical that Niall really likes the artists he says he likes? Yeah I think you have your Harry-goggles on, Anon :) Niall has always loved classic rock, he has talked about it just as much as Harry has.

I have no doubt Harry will be deliciously different! :)

anonymous asked:

hello. I have an internet friend who means a lot to me. she has bipolar and sometimes I don't know how to help/approach her when she's having a breakdown. I want to help. I've looked up almost all the information/suggestion on the internet, but I still don't know what to do because it's a long-distance relationship. Also, how do I take care of myself when trying to take care of others?

Hello! What a kind question this is. I don’t have a ton of experience with bi-polar, so YMMV and please, readers, feel free to weigh in.

It’s wonderful that you want to help your friend, and I commend you for being a compassionate and loving person. I’m a little bit the same way — I always want to be there when someone is going through a hard time.

Here are a few tips that may seem a bit paradoxical but I promise, in the long run, will leave you more healthy and therefore with a bigger, better capacity to help and be present:

1. Just ask. It may be that during these times, she needs space. Or she needs someone to send her happy otter gifs. Or she needs someone to just send a video of you singing a silly “I love you” song and understand when she doesn’t get back to you. It’s a good idea to ask her about this when things are good. You can also make offers based on what you’ve read — “During a depression, is it helpful if I xyz?”

2. Don’t be hurt if she doesn’t respond. Remember that you’re doing this for her, not for you. She may not be able to get back to you in that moment, and that’s OK. When someone has the flu, we don’t expect them to have the energy to immediately repay the favor. Same deal!

3. Put on your own oxygen mask first. A little while ago, my little sister and I were both going through some Very Tough Mental Illness “Fun” Times. I wanted to help her and she wanted to help me but the truth is that both of us were too fragile to be of any use to the other, and just ended up hurting each other. Remember that your health must come first, always.

4. Remember what you can and can’t do, and what is and is not up to you. You can do your best to be a loving, helpful friend. You cannot make your friend well. Her health is not up to you, or, really, *anyone*, including her. You can love your friend and hope that she gets well and do what you can in good faith to show support and love. Unfortunately, that’s it.

Good luck!

hii! 👋 okay, besides the fact that I love the new update of the comic (I was seriously sooo happy to see it updated, I love that au!), I wanna tell you how much I like your Levi - I honestly don't know what it is about the way you draw him (I'm thinking it's the jaw or the expressions of his eyes), but he looks sooo gooood and always catches my eye whenever I see your art! also I've been following you for a while now and your art is always really beautiful, keep up with the good work! 😄

This made me so happy!! Levi is a bit tricky to get right (both his face and his personality actually) but also a lot of fun and I’ve reached a point now where I’m pretty content with the result. So I’m happy you share that sentiment, thank you so much!! <33

Also thanks for the other nice messages you sent me regarding my comic, I really treasure every single one of them and they’re incredibly motivating T_T

hey there :) i couldn't stop myself from rereading experimentation again and i've been assembling quotes from it that stood out to me. Ya know, because they were so well written, or frighteningly relatable, or just really funny. And i was wondering if you'd be interested in seeing that "collection"? like, would that be a thing that's relevant to you as a writer rather than me just rambling a little out of admiration? i wouldn't want to bother you. :)

Lemme think….


YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAASSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

As a writer, this stuff is always relevant to me. And just, like, interesting also. I love knowing which bits stick out to people and why. I’m kind of a slut for that kind of feedback. So, please, by all means….

You know, Skam truly changed my perspective on LGBT relationships. Before, I always believed myself to be one of those "I dont judge anyone, love is love" people, but I'd also felt gay relationships to be a bit strange because I never really understood them. But SKAM shattered my everything I thought I knew. I didnt realize how subconsciously prejudiced I was till I watched it, and now I see Isak and Even as one of THE most beautiful relationships I've ever seen depicted on TV. Thank you, SKAM!

thats lovely, im happy it made you see it, admit it then change your thoughts!:’)

To me I've always compared Reyes and Sloane most to Aria. They aren't good but they aren't evil either. They all love power, they care about people in their own way, they can also be very manipulative and brutal. All fascinating grey characters in their own right that you wanna know more about them but you can't exactly trust any of them not to stab you in the back.

I think the comparison with Aria is a bit superficial (meaning it doesn’t hold up in details, Sloane is not Aria 2.0, nor is Reyes) but I gotta say: fandom will call Aria their Queen and few people will be critical of her but Sloane? She’s a monster and they can’t wait to kill her. 

And Reyes, it’s the opposite. He’s a woobie, fandom’s favorite. It’s fine, just don’t tell me he is full of good intentions and trying to fight an oppressor without having his own agenda and own brutal methods.

Hi! So I've always loved Moriarty but only very recently found Mormor, so I was wondering some things. Is there a story behind Sebastian being called Tiger? And the Richie and Severich bit also has me lost (I only get that its the Richard Brook identity from Reichenbach).

Hello, and welcome! We are glad to have you!

Sebastian is called Tiger because of his years of hunting big game in India–notably tigers. He’s lost a nipple during an altercation with one particular tiger called Kali’s Kitten. Please refer to Kim Newman’s novel, Hound of the D’Urbervilles for more about Moran’s adventures!

For Severich, imagine that Richard Brook really was just an actor; Jim Moriarty’s meek twin, and that Sebastian Moran had a twin as well: Severin Moran! I believe Severin was first created by @raaawrbin who has since moved on to other fandoms. Severich is generally known as the fluffier version of Mormor because of Richie. Please be aware that this ship is purely fanon!

If anyone else would like to add to this, please do!

Iggy has way too many pets. His favorite, of course, is his Chain Chomp, but he also has three Scaredy Rats, a Crowber, four Bloopers, a Sidestepper, and a Dino Torch. Bowser, of course, doesn't mind that much, but he does complain when Iggy's pets make noise in the middle of the night, or when Iggy's room starts to smell like animal poop.

AND ALSO
arin is so kind and respectful and loving towards everyone like ?????? is he even rEAL??! he’s so perfect my gosh
he wants to help his friends as much as he can and once offered to give dan a large amount of money without expecting him to pay back
and he was able to build several businesses that made not only him happy but also his friends. like whenever there’s facecam on grumps arin is almost always smiling and it’s just !!!!!
hes so supportive and sweet and he doesn’t deserve all the hate he gets just because he’s bad at video games

I'm writing a story with a love triangle and I was wondering what the most common clichés occur with love triangles and I was wondering how to avoid these? I already think I've made it a bit too obvious who will end up together, but I can't figure out how to make it less obvious

Here is a generalization of the most common love triangles:

The Love Angle

The most common love triangles take the form of a love angle. Character A likes Character B. Character C also likes Character B. A and C do not like each other. In fact, they often hate each other.

Character B

Character B is at the center of the love angle and is almost always female. It’s common for her to be “painfully average”, to not have friends or to have closer ties to her family than to others her age, to have a bland personality, to be stubborn, and to be confused as to why anyone would like her. When she describes herself, she claims she is “not like other girls”.

She is often a reactive protagonist, meaning she lets stuff happen around her but doesn’t do much on her own to advance the plot. When she does do something, it’s often impetuous and ends up causing more harm than good. This often serves as a way for A or C to “save” her, but it also gives them a chance to verbally abuse her for being an idiot.

This character is always the protagonist, often speaking through a first person POV. She is often single at the start of the story, but not always. If she is in a relationship with someone, it is usually either A or C, not a third character. She waits until the end of the book, or series, to “choose” who she wants to be with. The entire story up until then keeps the reader guessing.

Throughout the story she tries to keep both boys calm and happy. She doesn’t want them to fight. She wants them to be best friends. If they turn on her she runs away or turns her back on them and both rush to apologize.

Recap:

  • Almost always female
  • Super duper average in everything except maybe one thing
  • Little to no friends
  • Passive protagonist
  • First person POV
  • Indecisive
  • Always ends up with either A or C

Characters A and C

Characters A and C are almost always male and they are usually opposites of each other. A is hot while C is cold. A is the athlete while C is the book worm. A is the prep while C is the laid back cool guy. A is a ray of sunshine while C is a crescent moon. Their appearance often reflects this.

These two characters may start off as strangers, acquaintances, classmates, or something else, but they do not have strong ties with each other until B steps in. Their relationship becomes violent and one often lunges for the other. Typically it is A (the “good guy”) who uses brawn against B (the “bad boy”), who uses brains.

The Good Guy usually has a good life and is social. The Bad Boy has a tragic back story, is a loner, creeps on B, is mysterious, and often flirts with B when she’s in a relationship with the Good Guy.

Meanwhile, if B is in a relationship with the Bad Boy, the Good Guy will become distant and angry. He will ask how she could “be so stupid” or will ask why she’s with someone like him.

Both are capable of abuse and harassment, but in different ways. One may be physical when he twists B’s arm to stop her from making another “stupid decision”. The author writes this as romantic, as desirable, and as a sign that this boy really does care. The other may use lies and deceit to “protect” B from harm. He uses fear to control her.

It’s not uncommon for B to refer to one of these characters as “like a brother” or to associate home and childhood with him. One boy is old, the other is new.

And then there are no breaks. There are no moments when A and C are not chasing after B or when they’re all single and fine with it. They never go after other girls. They never back off and just wait for B to be single before they make a move.

Lastly, these characters don’t really have a reason to be in love with B. She herself says there is nothing about her that is interesting or attractive, inside or out. All she does is walk down the hall and suddenly they’re in love with her. Their obsession often becomes creepy and abusive. One may watch her from afar doing mundane things.

Recap:

  • Almost always male
  • Opposites of each other
  • Hate each other
  • Abusive
  • Obsessed with B
  • Their entire narrative and nearly all of their motives revolve around B

All

One of these characters is often the “new kid” or at least someone who is separated from the other two more often than not. For example, A and B may go to the same school whereas C goes to a different school, but met B because he works at the grocery store.

It’s common for one of them (A, B, or C), to be the new kid in school. Sometimes they’re not immediately new. Sometimes they were new to the school the year before the story started. Either way, one member of the love angle is usually “othered” in some way.

Ways to Avoid

Some ways to avoid the above are:

  • Get rid of the abuse
  • Give the protagonist a personality and a role in the story
  • Don’t let A and C be complete opposites
  • Change their genders and sexualities
  • Make it an actual triangle (A likes B, B likes C, C likes A)
  • End it with a polyamorous relationship (I’ve only seen this once)
  • Don’t let anyone get together at the end
  • Change up who likes each other (A and B like each other, C likes B but B does not like C)
  • Let A or C eventually reject B
  • Let B make her “choice” long before the end of the book
  • Keep the boy-girl-boy format, but change the POV character
  • Let B end up with someone who was never in the original triangle
  • A and C don’t know about each other and never meet
  • Don’t kill one off if you don’t know how to make a decision
  • Use red herrings 
  • Give B really good reasons to be with both A and C

Version 2

A less common version, but still common, of the love angle is when A and C are not actively pursing B, but both like her. One of the boys is a childhood friend or just a good friend who is in love with her, but who won’t make a move. B is oblivious.

She goes after C, who she loves (often for reasons related to his appearance or skills), but realizes he’s not a great person. Sometime during her relationship with C, A might confess his love and then complicate things. Later on she realizes that it was A who loved her all along, so she goes to him and they’re perfect for each other. This is an extremely predictable plot.

Ways to avoid this:

  • When B goes back to A to apologize and kiss him for being so oblivious, he rejects her
  • Change the genders and sexualities
  • When B goes back to A to apologize and kiss him for being so oblivious, they realize they’re terrible together
  • A confesses his love for B before B gets with C and before he knows that B is going after C/likes C
