Doc Holliday is a class-A pain in the ass… but he’s also one of the most loyal and solid and fearless man I’ve ever met. Yeah, he can be a polecat sometimes, but he’s a changed man. He’s redeemed himself many times over. And I’m proud to call this man my brother.
Okay, here goes. Ames, I love you. I love how smart you are, I love how beautiful you are. I love your face, and I love your butt. I should have written this down first. No no, it’s okay, go on. I love how much you pretend to like Die Hard. I like the second one… You don’t have to.Ok. Yeah. You’re kind, and you’re funny, and you’re the best person I know. And, the best detective. Also, for realz I love your butt. I love yours too. Gross.

it’s been like 4 years and i just wanted to s/o all the folks who’ve made me fall in love with this ship, inspired me to write, and supported me in a variety of ways:
@cheleonrage712: this girl is a BEAST y’all. She’s written cross overs for Bonnie and Klaus with almost every fandom imaginable, from Black Panther to Game of Thrones. Writes some of the most amazing kidfic out there, with kid OC’s that have the most adorable personalities, and is always reblogging and boosting other writers and artists. One time she wrote a drabble about klaus having a tea party with his and Bonnie’s daughter that was so FREAKING CUTE it made me lie down and cry. No joke.
@bonneibennett: my OG! She’s best known as queen of the b*amon fandom and possibly the most perfect cinnamon roll to ever roll, but she’s also a multishipping STAR whose amazing klonnie gifsets and graphics sucked me in. Nisha also has the dubious honor of reccing me my first klonnie fic that forever cemented my love for the ship and ruined my life. Without her encouragement and amazing artwork I would’ve never taken the plunge to writing klonnie. I mean, just look at this talent right here. Enough said.
@darwinquark: another beast of a girl who’s always around when i’m feeling EXTRA SALTY about that one Ship That Must Not Be Named. Her one klonnie fic is so amazing and she herself is so freaking talented. I mean, she gifs, she vids, she edits, she writes, she throws shade like no one’s business. Is there anything this girl can’t do????
@thebennettdiaries: UH-MAZING writer and lovely person. Seriously, this girl is like writing #goals. Wrote one of the hottest klonnie fics TO DATE that I always return to when I need inspiration, incredibly supportive to other writers, always down to talk plot bunnies and headcanons, and consistently fills the klonnie tag with amazing drabbles and chapters. A veteran of the klonnie fandom and one of my all time faves.
@iputaspxllonyou: runs like one of the most beautiful Bonnie Bennett RP blogs I’ve ever seen, is undiluted 100% klonnie trash, and aside from being a talented writer herself, is always around to help me talk ideas and scenarios and read over scenes I’m having trouble with. One of the wittiest people I know, takes no shit, and writes some of the most heartbreaking and beautiful stuff. She has a drabble about Klaus helping Bonnie babysit the neighbor’s kids that I’m pretty sure made me ovulate spontaneously. 10/10 would recommend.
@thehedgerider: YO this girl always leaves the best reviews, smart as a whip and has a brain that can assemble and disassemble stories at the drop of a hat. She started writing Klonnie fic last summer and her very first fic SOMEHOW managed to take 8 years of shitty shitty canon and weave it into something magnificent that develops Bonnie and Klaus both individually and as a couple. I still don’t know how she managed it. Tbh she may have sold her soul to the devil, cos it was that.freaking.brilliant. Also always around to talk sensibly when I’m freaking out about canon stupidity. Bless your heart girl. Go read her fics!
@lilac17: once upon a time I said a prayer for someone to write a klonnie babyfic where everyone’s in character, the cuteness is balanced with development, the angst is paired with fluff, and Bonnie has agency and Klaus grows as a person, and the fandom gods sent THIS GIRL. She’s also currently writing a soulmate fic that breaks and restores my heart in every chapter, and her mastery of emotional conflict breathes so much intimacy and warmth into her stories it’s almost unbearable. She’s also a sweetheart who supports other fans and always stands up for creativity. Go read her stuff and catch all the feels!
@thefudge: if y’all follow us both then you know we spend an inordinate amount of time up each other’s butts so please excuse this gratuitous affection. But YO, she’s my trash sis for a reason. My evil twin. My road dog. My fellow bride of Dracula. The other raccoon in the dumpster with me. This girl is the Lestat to my Robert Redford. She’s such a gifted writer it’s ridiculous y’all. I mean, go see for yourself. Whether it’s gothic romance or bittersweet indie ventures, I always end up flailing and demanding more. This chick’s writing will keep you up at night, but in like a GOOD, i-didnt-know-i-needed-this-until-now kinda way. Aside from being brilliant, she’s also kind and smart and has helped me get through some of the craziest stuff in my life with her beautiful gifsets, amazing fics, and always rewarding conversation. So much so that I hereby forgive her for hurting me with beautiful Klonnie AUs. (You’re welcome bish)
Each and every one of you are responsible for creating a lovely little community in which I’ve felt more inspired, more creative, more welcomed and supported than any other fandom community I’ve been in. Y’all seriously rock, and I can’t wait to keep rocking with this fam <3 Viva la us my loves!
Everything You Taught Me (and the things I’m yet to learn).
- Walter & Paige: 3x02 | 3x22
An observational contrast between Walter’s desire and dream to be close to Paige, while simultaneously pushing her away.
**This is the first gifset I’ve ever created and shared. I hope you all like them. Any feedback is greatly appreciated (still working on my compression quality). I started watching Scorpion on a whim when another one of my regular shows went on hiatus a few months back. I was instantly hooked and Waige became my OTP. Ugh.. I got hit hard with Them Ship Feels. Hence the name of this page.
And what a great fandom! I dedicate this gifset to @webuiltthepyramids who encouraged me in a quick message the other day to post the gifs I make.
So I wrote a thiam fanfic based off one of the prompts you gave me. The prompt was “Hayden returns and is confused as to why Liam is surrounded by so many gay werewolves (puppy pack).” This story is literally the first fanfic I’ve ever written. I’m sorry if it’s ooc or it just plain sucks. I only know how to write academic papers and definitely don’t know how to write slash fanfic. So to make up for a crappy gift, I’ve also made a gifset and a photoset.
The gifset is based off your prompt of: “Instead of brushing off Liam’s question about why he always saves him, Theo tells the truth. Scott has nothing to do with it.” And the photoset is inspired by your story Lazy Mornings.
Rules: It’s time to love yourselves! Choose your 5 favorite works you’ve created this year (fics, art, edits, etc!) and link them below to reflect on the amazing things you’ve brought into the world in 2017. Tag as many writers/artists/etc as you want (fan or original!) so we can spread the love and link each other to awesome works. <3
I decided to cheat and list 10 works instead. I tried really hard to narrow them down to just 5, but I couldn’t. >_<
In 2016, I made over 150 gifsets. My goal for this year was to make roughly 50, since I had used up most of the good FMA quotes during that first year. And this year, I made 77 gifsets/edits (701 gifs total), so I reached my goal! This year definitely marked a change from prioritizing quantity to prioritizing quality. I went through a pretty severe slump, during which I couldn’t see the point in making gifs when someone else could easily take my place. That slump was due largely to my blog getting incorrectly flagged as explicit and my gifsets subsequently getting very few notes.
I did get out of my slump eventually, but making gifs isn’t the same as it was pre-slump. I feel like my efforts are only worthwhile if they’re spent on more complicated gifsets, which is why I’ve made relatively few edits recently. While I’ve put out drastically less content in the past year, I learned a lot more techniques that I think increased the overall quality of what I posted!
I couldn’t narrow it down to 5 gifsets, so here are 10 that I think were the highlight of the year. (Two of them were posted in 2016 after my last yearly review in August 2016!)
How do you deal with writer’s block? Does allowing myself to be bogged down in existential despair count as ‘dealing with’ it?
Do you have a favorite movie? Yes, too many to count, though my favorite Disney film is Robin Hood (hence the name and icon).
Who is your favorite author? Neil Gaiman.
How did you start getting involved in fanfiction? Oh man. Uh, I started writing CSI: fanfic back in high school, then took a break during college but got dragged back in after the Les Misérables film/fandom ate my soul.
How did you get involved with Barisi? I’ve been a (mostly casual) fan of Raúl ever since I first heard the tick…tick…BOOM! soundtrack my freshman year of high school (2003), and this past spring was bored and scrolling through Tumblr and saw this gifset someone I follow reblogged and I was like, damn, when did Raúl get so hot, and also, when was he on SVU?? One Netflix binge later and oh boy, I was sunk. I told myself I was just going to write one fanfic, because I had an idea I couldn’t get out of my head, and now I’m up to almost fifty because apparently, I have no self-control.
What inspires you to write? Literally anything, especially other media: music, movies, tv shows, etc. If there’s one thing I do not have a shortage of, Lord knows it’s ideas. The motivation and time to actually write those ideas, well…that’s a different question.
What is your favorite fic that you have written? Probably the Seven Not-So-Deadly Sins of Sonny Carisi. It’s probably the most deeply personal thing I’ve written for the SVU fandom, and it turned into so much more than I intended when I set out to write it. I’ve toyed with writing a sequel (the Seven Not-So-Heavenly Virtues of Rafael Barba, of course), but I feel like I’d be trying to recapture something that was, for me at least, really magical, and the only thing I’d be doing is setting the fic up for disappointment.
What is your favorite quote from a fic of yours? Honestly? From my fic where Barba and Carisi go to Disney World:
“It’s a fantasy!” he snapped, loudly enough that a few people stopped and stared. “If you were waiting for a sign from the universe, Detective, we’re literally standing in Fantasyland between the Dumbo ride and the magic tea cups, and you somehow want to try to convince me this isn’t a fantasy?” Carisi shook his head slowly, but Barba again beat him to it. “I think it’s time we both grew up and realized that life isn’t a Disney movie and things don’t always work out.”
For a long moment, Carisi just stared at him, expression unreadable, and Barba braced for the goodbye he’d known was coming ever since that very first kiss.
Instead, Carisi grabbed his hand without warning and all but dragged him a hundred feet from where they were standing, ignoring his protests. “Here,” he said roughly, coming to a stop so quickly that Barba almost ran into him. Barba just stared up at him blankly, wondering where the hell Carisi was going with this. “You’re so worried about the future? Fine. But we’re not in Fantasyland anymore. We’re in Tomorrowland, and if we’re having this argument, we’re having it for real.”
Mainly because I literally built the entire fic around Carisi saying those last two lines and I’m damned proud of myself for it.
What is your personal favorite fanfic? I am a simple girl with simple wants and needs, and my biggest (non-sexual) kink is when one character has every reason and opportunity to walk away but instead chooses to stay. As such, perhaps it’s unsurprising that I think my personal favorite fic is
In Perfect Parts, part of the Mode & Moment series by
, chapter 4 especially. It is the pinnacle of fic, one of the greatest things I’ve ever read for its realness, and even though I’ve never been able to come close to emulating it, it’s inspired me in so many ways.
Anything else you would like to add? Mainly I want to give a shout-out to the Barisi fandom as a whole, which continues to be, by and large, the most supportive fandom I’ve been lucky to be a part of. I’m constantly blown away by the response to my writing. Y'all make it very easy for me to keep writing, and I can’t thank you enough for all you’ve done for me, especially during the past several months which have not been the greatest in my offline life. You’ve sustained me and encouraged me and kept me going just by being generally awesome, so thanks to everyone who helps makes this fandom great!

Everything happens for a reason. That’s what everyone keeps telling her, especially now, but Rebecca doesn’t believe them. After all, what possible reason could there be behind her losing virtually everything she’s ever loved? There isn’t one, and if another person tells her that “everyone dies eventually”, she’s going to break all over again.
