and i can just picture someone sitting there

anonymous asked:

okay but I just realised it has been two years since we got impossibly tiny foldable Louis being CUTE AS FUCK while texting with someone (...) on the phone in a corner of a club and I JUST NEED YOU TO SCREAM WITH ME so can you do that PLEASE ???????!!!!

I can! I CAN!!!!! Has it been two years already?? Two years sine these grainy and terribly low quality pics hit tumblr and completely took my breath away?! Pictures of Louis in a club somewhere in Bangkok, half sitting half lying down in some corner of the club, or even on a table or on top of the bar for all we know. The pictures sure didn’t give away too much but WHO CARES?? I mean LOOK AT HIM!!! 

He couldn’t care less about ‘club etiquette’, about how he should probably dance and be on his feet, mingling with the people around him, nope. This gorgeous boy just decided he wanted some time to himself to share the moment with whoever (*cough*) was on the receiving end of his messages so he simply sat down in a corner, sank down comfortably with his high tops slung over his knee, bopping to the music and smiling happily while texting on his phone, just really enjoying some time to himself in the midst of the madness surrounding him :) 

And it really doesn’t get much cuter than this does it?? Two years have passed and these pictures still knock the breath out of me because this is SUCH A LOUIS THING TO DO ISNT’T IT??! Being the most adorable and yes, foldable person out there, just enjoying his time like only he can. No wonder I’m whipped, right?

And as if that wasn’t enough, we got this equally grainy pic of Louis leaving the club looking impossibly soft and curvy and tiny and I just can’t understand how the person holding the camera didn’t pass out on the spot because LOOK: 

So to answer your question anon: AAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHH!!!!
Thanks for the friendly reminder. You have officially killed me. Again… 

Throw a book at my head? We'll see who has the last laugh.

So this happens back in freshman year of high school for me, about twenty years ago. Little bit of a back story, I was born with Neurofibromatosis, a genetic condition that causes tumor growth on nerve endings and a large list of other problems like early onset puberty, blindness, epilepsy, death ect.

I had this teacher who if you called her an ancient old hag you’d be being polite. For whatever reason she had it out for me I can only pin it down to her being a bully. Now I had been sick because of my medical condition and had action plans with the school as to not fall behind, the teacher knew of my condition because of this.

So one day I come into the classroom and there’s a depiction of me on the whiteboard with the words “tumor boy” above it….the teacher just shrugged and laughed, she had disclosed my medical condition to the entire class. I tell the principal, nothing. The guidance counselor nothing, my parents? Nothing. Nobody believes me. It’s my word against hers, so for now I let it go. I’m very patient so I know I’ll get another opportunity.

Another incident, she hits my hand with a ruler when I ask her to stop taunting me in front of the other students my medical condition is nobody’s business but my own. She tells the class I have brain tumors which is why my head is so large. She also points out that I have the in my feet again disclosing private medical information just to be a vile person. I again go through everyone, again nobody believes me.

So then I get a mild case of the flu, and miss about a week of school so I ask if I can bring a recorder to school to tape lessons to catch up it’s immediately put in my file for whatever reason she missed this meeting, still it’s in my file so she should know about the agreement. So now I know if she acts like a rancid bitch again her ass is mine, all I need is bait which pretty much just takes me showing up.

The very next day at school I’m sitting in class with the recorder taping in my bag, and she starts with her daily routine of asking someone to draw a picture of “me and all my tumors” on the white board, I again ask her to stop and this is where the book is thrown at my head with a loud thud followed by a profanity filled tirade about how terrible of a child I am.

It’s at this point I stop the recorder, and tell her exactly what I think of her and am then physically removed from the class and taken to the principals office, and I’m expelled.

Once I got home is when I showed my parents the tape, within twenty minutes we are back at the school playing it for the principal and vice principal threatening legal action. Needless to say my expulsion is lifted and she is fired on the spot just before retirement, losing her retirement money.

She even called me after and asked “why are you doing this”? I simply told her she did it to herself and hung up.

EXO: Being Late To A Date and When He Arrives He Sees Someone Bothering You

(Fluff, fluff, and more fluff. Teeny tiny mention of what was somewhat violence.)

Xiumin:

                                                              ~

You sat on the swing solemnly, checking your phone for what seemed like the thousandth time in the last hour. Xiumin was supposed to meet you at the park an hour ago, and failed to show or even shoot you a text to tell you he would be running quite late. You had quickly chose to wait, knowing Xiumin wouldn’t just bail. It had gotten pretty dark out and it would be a lie to say you weren’t frustrated with him, completely tempted to blow up his phone until he decided to answer you.

A sigh of exasperation left your lips as you glanced up, seeing a guy in front of you; not the guy you were waiting for, but a guy nonetheless.

Final part of ‘My son, Bringer of Storms.’



You were staring at the wall, trying to keep calm and relaxed. Jensen was out in the hall with River, but in here, you were alone. Again. And even though you’ve done this before, you were scared.  You tried your best not to cry, you wouldn’t give him that satisfaction.

“It’s only a matter of time now.” The nurse smiled at you. “Would you like me to call for the anesthesiologist now?” You nodded. You knew you couldn’t wait much longer. “Alright, I’ll be back.” She left the room.

You eyes didn’t leave the wall. Your heart breaking.  “Y/n?” You hadn’t heard the door open, or anyone come in. With nurses in and out, you didn’t care. “Sweetheart?” That grabbed your attention.

I'm attending my first con tomorrow and am cosplaying for the first time (my dad is also with me, and I'm not sure what's the right way to ask someone else about their cosplay without it sounding rude? Especially when you don't know what it is but want to compliment them.) Any major dos and donts for first time con peeps?

Hmm. Quick rundown since I’m about to go to bed

If a cosplayer is sitting down, usually they don’t want to be photographed.
Never ask someone who is eating if you can take a photo.
Always ask before taking a picture
DONT TOUCH WITHOUT PERMISSION!

Don’t assume their character and say “are you [insert character here]??” Just say “I like your cosplay, may I ask what it’s from?”

If you want to take a photo of someone just go up and ask! Usually like “hey! Is it ok if I get a photo of you?”
If you want to ask about their cosplay it’s like the picture thing. I’ve had people come up and ask me how I’ve made something a lot! Just like a “hey, I love your cosplay! Can I ask how you made [insert part of cosplay here]”

For the most part cosplayers are very nice and get excited when you want a photo, so don’t be afraid!

anonymous asked:

Hi Sam! So question: I'm going to a comic con for the first time and I'm scared witless (I've never really shared my fan-ness before), do you have any dos and don'ts or have a resource with dos and don'ts. I'm sorry if this falls under Sam advises but I figured since you've gone to cons yourself a fellow fan might have the best answers.

Don’t be scared! Comic conventions are great fun! Or rather, you have my permission to be scared, but don’t let that prevent you from having a good time. :D

Sometimes advice about conventions can vary based on the size and how it’s being produced. Small fan-produced cons are different from large professionally-produced cons; they have different focuses and goals. Even regionally, cons can vary greatly. So this is general advice, but it’s mostly common-sense stuff. 

Before I even get into the list, though, just to address “I’ve never shared my fan-ness before” – you will not be alone, and nobody there will know that you’ve never been “out” about being a fan before. To them you’re just a fellow fan. EVERYONE is there because they love the fandom, so nobody is going to point and stare at you for Being A Fan; they’re busy Being Fans themselves. Some asshole may try to gatekeep you, but that is increasingly rare, and you don’t have to engage. You can just say “I need to go now” and walk away if that happens.

Ilegal Car Races AU

After a really long car trip I realised how much I’d enjoy reading a klance AU with ilegal car races, like,

  • Keith is one of the best drivers 
  • Lance is part of the cops
  • Pidge is responsible for making the modifications of Keith’s car
  • Hunk is Lance’s best friend and also part of the cops
  • Shiro is Keith’s brother and has no idea Keith’s is participating on ilegal races.

Like image Shiro and Keith being poor and strugeling to get money. Shiro has a honest job but he barelly manages to win enough to put food on the table. Keith rash and impulsive as always figures he could make some money if he won some of the car races.

Matt has a garage and Pidge helps out. She learns about Keith’s plan and desides to help him out, since he know some stuff about mechanics but he’s pretty much hopeless in general.

Keith starts racing to get money but he actually starts enjoying it a lot and cant bring himself to stop.

Meanwhile, Lance is given a job where he has to infiltrate the ilegal races to identify the races and the big guys who organizing it.

Also gotta point out I totally picture Lance flirting with girls in his police officer uniform, just saying.

Obviouslly Lance falls for Keith cuz who wouldnt? and screws up in his work probably.

Also I can totally imagine Keith driving his red car with Lance sitting on the front passenger seat, probably being chased by the police or something and Keith is just doing all that cool junk and Lance is just screaming “You’re gonna kill us both!” and Keith just like “Shut up and trust me!”

Working with Santa

So I’m a full time student so part time or seasonal work is ideal. I worked at the mall talking pictures of people’s kids with him. It was shitty from start to end. First day, someone’s kid sneezed in my face, parents didn’t even try to pretend they were sorry, they just looked at me like 🤷🏾‍♀️(surprise, I not only got sick, I had strep throat). Few days into December another mall calls ours & is like “hey, we’re short staffed, can you send some people our way?”. I told my manager I’d love to pull extra shifts up there (it’s a 45 minute drive from the mall I worked at, manager even said I’d get paid extra for the commute), where does it get shitty? I was put down as a full time worker, we get paid every two weeks, within this pay period I worked every day & pulled 80 hours (my paycheck was hella nice), after that district called my manager and told her not to give me hours like that again (sorry for being good at making kids laugh so parents can buy your over priced pictures). Then one time I kept trying to explain the prices of the pictures to this family who just tried to walk past me, the husband kept talking over me saying how he just wants to take pictures with Santa, this happened 3 times before I shouted I was trying to explain the prices to him for the pictures. Other parents get pissed at the wait time, causing them to get pissed at me for not pulling them ahead because “We’ve been waiting so long and my child is getting antsy”. So because little Tim can wait 15 minutes to sit on the lap of a complete stranger I have to pull you ahead of patient little Jessica? I think not. Then the parents who ask if they could hop ahead of someone who paid for a reservation because they just want to say hi “really quick” will ask the parents after I tell them no because I have to take care of the reservation first.

Imagine Mark Watney, after many years of being indoors with no direct sun, feeling sun for the first time. I imagine it happens when he’s first out of quarantine, and the crew comes to visit him. I imagine he’s sitting there, staring at the sun, and somebody, maybe Johanssen, because for all her computer-ness she still knows what he wants, offers to move the party outside. Maybe Beck protests a little, but one of the doctors says it’s ok, he can go out, but he can’t walk out there, so mark sits in the wheelchair, and they roll him outside, and he just lets the sun hit his face, enjoying the warmth and the light, and breathing in fresh air and maybe someone (vogel) takes a picture of him. It doesn’t leave their phones, but the whole team has a pic of Mark basking in the sun, and they feel bad, Lewis especially, because in their minds, it’s their faults, they did this, but that pic reminds them that, regardless of what happened, they fixed it. They brought him home, and they have the picture to prove it.

  • probably wanna avoid something that has a lot of hard complicated formulas too
  • tbh jeongguk is really thinking art but then people tell him he’s gonna starve on the street because people nowadays don’t value culture and aesthetics and put money before everything
  • so jeongguk is like well the only valid option would obviously be
  • biochemical engineering
  • that’s right my dudes
  • and his parents are like dude wth that’s like combining all the things you specifically said you don’t wanna do in the future but when jeongguk gets his mind set on something, well damn he gets his mind set on something and now jeongguk can think of nothing better to do then biochemical engineering
  • he’s like wow i cannot wait to *googles what biochemical engineering majors actually do*
  • and his family is so so concerned but they’re like whatever we will let him live his dreams tbh,,,
  • honestly i can see ouran au in the near future…
  • but anyway!!
  • jeongguk is like um yikes well community college does not have my major so it’s probably a good idea to apply for some universities
  • tbh jeongguk doesn’t even mean to apply for an american school, he thinks the school that he’s looking at is an international school in korea?? but no no no it’s a school off in the grand old USA, and he doesn’t seem to get that fact
  • so boy done applies there, not realizing what the heck he’s signed up for
  • surprise, guess what school ends up giving him the most money
  • that’s right, the american one does
  • and that’s when jeongguk realizes that the school is in america because wait just one minute here that picture on this email most definitely looks like the statue of liberty
  • i could really see jeongguk doing college in new york because wow!! he is such a lively and fun-loving, confident kid and new york city is my favorite place in the world i’ve been there twice so i can say that in all confidence
  • but like also it has so much to do so his thirst for adventure and fun would never be quenched and he would always have something to do?
  • from like going to the famous museums or shopping downtown or all those wild food trucks?? and also like broadway my love omg
  • and so for this au he goes to american school in new york!! his parents are so willing to send him over tbh because new york is rad and in this au he has like an aunt and uncle over there who live like three hours away or something so his family know that he always has someone to count on if he ever needs someone\
  • he also has another person to count on,,,
  • his roommate,,,
  • park jimin,,,
  • it is to be noted that this isn’t in relation to the other college au’s because i am so inconsistent :)
  • anyway jeongguk flies over and he’s like wow college i am in love except he gets lost on the way to his dorm tbh and he probably ends up knocking on the wrong dorm door and he walks in on seokjin,,, standing there shirtless,,, taking selfies
  • and jeongguk is liKE OMG HI THERE UM YIKES GOTTA BLAST
  • and jin is pretty chill he gets all red but he’s like “um,,, you aren’t taehyung?”
  • “no i’m jeon jeongguk, i thought this was my room but i guess nOT”
  • and jin is like mom mode activated and he’s like hold lemme get a shirt on and then i can help you find your actual dorm there child
  • jeongguk gets all pouty and he crosses his arms over his chest like i am not a child i am an adult okay
  • but nah jeongguk is still a baby
  • anyway jin is like oh you’re roommates with jimin, that’s awesome, he’s such a sweetheart he’s in wellness walking club with me and we have acapella and cooking clubs together, and also-
  • jin is interrupted because jimin comes to the door and his eyes are all red and puffy and he sniffles “oh you’re here seokjin.”
  • and jin is like !!!
  • and jeongguk is like ???
  • jimin is all upset because he thought his roommate wasn’t gonna show up and he was gonna be alone the entire year and when he sees that jeongguk is his roommate he like tackles him and he’s smiling and jeongguk is screaming that he’s being attacked
  • but him and jimin are actually really close and they love each other very much and they spend nights talking about their crushes and sneaking taehyung into their room and talking about life back home and their families
  • jeongguk probably gets into a lot of clubs he seems like someone who would spread himself thin trying to do everything
  • he would definitely be in anime club
  • there is no doubt about it and everyone there worships him because he’s hot as hell and they probably try to make him get up and cosplay as something dumb like sasuke or something
  • can he be ritsu kassanoda too yikes
  • yes he can it’s my au
  • okay besides weeb club he would be in the wellness walking club which will now make an appearance in every single au i write
  • also ends up joining the soccer team okay and he plays goalie and damn he’s amazing he pitches shut out after shut out and his coach is like man how’d you get so good at this?? what kind of prodigy school did you go to?
  • and jeongguk just smirks like “dancing”
  • he would be on the dance team with hoseok and jimin too when it’s the “off season” for soccer (but when is there actually an off season)
  • goes to meditation club but nobody knows about this one tbh because like wow yes he’s a genius and yes he’s an amazing soccer player
  • but damn his major is hard and he does so much on top of school that he totally wears himself out but he doesn’t know how to say no to people or put himself and his health first sometimes
  • he’s not very good at sharing his feelings either so everyone always thinks he’s confident, smiling jeongguk when in reality he’s struggling to keep it together
  • and that my friends, is where you come in
  • you and jeongguk have art history together right?
  • you have this little baby crush on jeongguk right because who wouldn’t, he’s absolutely stunning?
  • but he has little everyone fawning over him and you’re like there is no way that he would notice me in a class this size, with people like that ogling over him? like what the heck
  • okay but class is ending and you need to talk to your professor really quick so you’re in no rush to pack up your bags
  • you kinda notice jeongguk taking his time too? but you’re like maybe he needs something too
  • but then there’s this loud thud and you spin around and jeongguk is on the floor, totally unconscious
  • you scream a bit and run over to him and you kneel on the ground and you shake him gently but boy is gone, he is completely passed out
  • your professor is calling someone to come and collect him or something??
  • you keep shaking him and calling his name and you’re like omg please be okay please be okay
  • the professor is like the phone isn’t working i’m gonna run and get someone please wait here with him
  • and he rushes out the door
  • you keep shaking jeongguk and you’re so stressed out but luckily for you he seems to be coming to his senses
  • yah, he’s definitely stirring and you can hear his breathing start to pick up
  • you help him up and you put his head on your lap so that he’s more comfortable and stuff
  • idk i’ve never passed out, only like for a few seconds so
  • but anyway his eyelids flutter open and maybe he wasn’t as knocked out at you thought he was?
  • he looks up at you and he smiles so softly and you can tell that he’s very confused and still out of it and you’re not even sure he’s actually awake?? and like mentally conscious??
  • “oh my god are you okay”
  • he nods and he closes his eyes again but he seems more aware and like awake??
  • “i forgot to eat” he mumbles and he exhales real slow
  • when the paramedics come, jimin is in tow
  • and yes, he confirms that now that he thinks about it, jeongguk hadn’t been eating, he was so busy with schoolwork and extracurriculars
  • poor jimin blames himself and jeongguk weakly tells him that he’s perfect and fine and did nothing wrong
  • they leave with jeongguk right?
  • jimin turns to you and he gives you a tight hug and you’re like !!!
  • “you saved my best friend oh my god thank you so much”
  • he gives you his number so he can update you about jeongguk and keep you posted about everything
  • jimin does just that tbh and he’s always like here is a picture of me and jeongguk snuggling in bed, because he needs more protection
  • here’s another picture, but this time i am spoon feeding jeongguk with jin, see him in the background
  • here’s a picture of yoongi using jeongguk as a human mattress!!
  • you feel like you get to know all of them through the updates and everything and it’s super sweet!!
  • one day, you’re chilling in the library, and someone comes and sits across from you and you’re like lmao stranger danger
  • you look up and there is none other than the jeon jeongguk
  • he has a breathe right strip on his nose and his hair is tucked back under a beanie and he’s wearing a flannel and doc martens and it’s a nice look
  • you get all blushy and you’re like wowow hi there!!
  • he smiles that bunny smile and you’re melting because is he even real probably not yikes
  • he has something in his hand and he hands it over to you and it’s this little plastic bag and inside are these totally misshapen cookies?
  • “seokjin helped me make ‘em. they taste better than they look, i swear they do”
  • you’re all !! because that’s so sweet you hope they aren’t poisoned lmao yikes
  • so you take them and he kinda gets all shy “yah thanks fo real though”
  • man i had a college au and yoongi took lots of pictures of jeongguk and i’m getting flashbacks’
  • “oh, thanks for putting up with jimin too, he can be so extra sometimes”
  • somewhere in the distance jimin feels a sudden pang in his chest
  • “well i wasn’t gonna let you die out,,, on the floor,,,”
  • and he laughs and you’ve never heard a more angelic sound before and suddenly things seem okay
  • after that you and jeongguk are close
  • buds even
  • usually when you guys hang it’s in the bangtan group setting though because he’s not one for one on one relationships, not this early in the game
  • he thrives off other people and the attention that people give him?
  • he loves the group setting, because let’s face it, jeongguk stands out
  • looks, personality, talent, he’s above average
  • he likes being in the group because it obviously sets him apart and he wants that
  • because he’s been into you low key for a while too
  • like every lecture he would shamelessly check you out and he’s so happy that you’re so thorough with your notes?
  • like he knew about you, you’re so cute and wonderful and such a sweetheart and he believes it’s fate that brought you together that day even if the circumstances were kinda !!
  • so now you two have each other in the same friend group and jeongguk could ask for nothing better
  • because yes he wants to date you and kiss your face all over but he also needs the time to get to know you better
  • but he never misses an opportunity to do things with you
  • he always invites you to his games and you probably wear his jacket to everyone and he’s like internally dying on the field because wow you guys look like an official couple he’s in love!
  • he would probably take you to broadway like save up a lot of money and give you tickets for your birthday or something??
  • and you two see wicked and you look so couply that old people just look on you and smile happily
  • tbh at the end of defying gravity he ends up sobbing his eyes out and he goes on this rant about how elphaba isn’t even the evil one, she’s just misunderstood by society and he’s having a fit and the only way you can get him to calm down is by hugging him tight and stroking his hair and whispering to him
  • what a hot mess
  • he always loves taking you to the art museums!!
  • i think jeongguk would really be into modern art because he loves loves loves seeing what the younger generation can do, and the things that set us all apart from our parents and grandparents and everything
  • but he also loves all the ancient classics and he’s especially fascinated by greek sculptures??
  • he always brings his sketchbooks to the museums and draws everything he sees
  • and then he would turn to you and be like well this is great and all but “you’re the real artwork here”
  • he would wink and smirk at you and you would roll your eyes because flirt alert
  • that rhymed lmao good one ally
  • he loves taking you shopping too and he’s like well time to spend all my money,,, on things i don’t need,,,
  • he’s such a shoe person you cannot convince me otherwise
  • he gets you matching doc martens and hoseok is like smh you two are so in love
  • he loves trying to impress you with all this hardcore engineering stuff and you’re like wow buddy, maybe if i was, idk, smart, this would make more sense
  • “i’m gonna genetically engineer my dog to speak”
  • “i’m gonna report you to the government”
  • tbh he’s such a child
  • he drags you to anime club and he’s like well i guess we gotta cosplay now,,, cosplay a cute couple cosplay,,, even though we aren’t dating because i’m afraid of forming attachments to people,,,
  • im not saying tamaharu
  • but im saying tamaharu
  • tbh it’s been like four years? three years? since i actually watched anime like idk who anyone is
  • but he would also love bringing you out to the soccer field and like no matter what level you are in the sport he’s like practice with me
  • and he would get all heart eyes when you kick the ball and he saves the goals
  • and whenever you would score on him he would start laughing and then chase you around and when he caught you he would pick you up and spin you around
  • also forces you to come to the gym
  • tbh it’s mostly so he can sit there and bench like two twenty and impress you
  • you always make sure he doesn’t spread himself too thin
  • like one time
  • jeongguk joined a club he’s not really into but he’s way too sweet to say no, right?
  • it’s like something really ugh like maybe cross country
  • and he kinda stops showing up because he’s exhausted and he doesn’t have time and he can barely get himself to eat let alone get up and go running
  • they keep texting him and the poor baby cannot say no so he’s sitting on your bed, crying as he’s pulling on running shoes
  • and you’re heart is breaking because jeongguk always puts others first and he always puts on this happy face and nobody really knows that things get to him
  • so you grab the phone and you call that number
  • “look here you carton of rotten milk, jeongguk has politely told you at least a million times that right now isn’t a good time for him? can you not respect that? i know your little team might fall to piece without him, but he’s gonna break into a million if he doesn’t get a break anytime soon. please leave him alone or else all hell will break loose, thank you!”
  • after that, nobody pushes jeongguk to do things he’s not up to
  • and after that, you, jimin, seokjin, and yoongi all get matching jackets that say “jeongguk protection squad” on the back and you all have different colors and they have flowers on them and they’re really cute!!
  • okay but like you and jeongguk flirt with each other like nobody’s business
  • and you’re like wow maybe one of us should confess,,,
  • jeongguk is like lmao nOPE
  • because yes he really really really likes you but i don’t see him as someone really eager to form romantic relationships just because wow those require a lot of work and i think jeongguk would be scared that maybe he would end up doing all the work in the sense he loves more than the other person
  • like what if he’s willing to love unconditionally, and you’re not?
  • he doesn’t want heartbreak, oh no, not at the college level
  • he’s gotta focus on his job and his future and yes he wants you to be a part of his future, but no he doesn’t want to have his future crashing down because he loved too much
  • but boy makes a dumb mistake
  • there’s an on campus art show!!
  • and remember how i said jeongguk draws everything he sees
  • well jeongguk draws you, a lot
  • like whenever you two are chilling or studying, down at the museum, waiting for one of jin’s swim matches to start
  • and there’s one drawing he’s really fond of in particular?
  • and it’s titled my love right
  • it’s a water color piece of you and it’s from this one day he took you to see the stars out in this little grotto near the edge of town
  • and as you stared on at the constellations in awe, he sketched you lovingly and-
  • that’s what he chooses to enter and there’s lot of stars in the background in dark hues but your face and clothes and hair, they’re all in warm colors, like reds and pinks and oranges and yellows? just to make it different and to have this neat contrast going on
  • but your eyes, he makes them the same colors as the stars and they look like they have stars in them, but why wouldn’t they? that’s how jeongguk views you anyhow
  • boy totally forgets that you of all people, would maybe show up to the art show!
  • jeongguk hangs low the night of the art show because he’s humble and gets so sheepish when dealing with compliments, because he has a lot of stuff up
  • but that piece, it’s in the front of the room in a large frame and it’s like really showcased
  • taehyung and jimin know all about it right,,,
  • so they call you up and they’re like you wanna go to the art show with us? yoongi has some pictures in there, and i heard they have free cake
  • you’re like lmao why wouldn’t i go,,,
  • so you do go
  • and you’re browsing all the art and you’re blown away by it all
  • one of yoongi’s pictures captioned “young love” sends a chill down your spine though because that’s a picture of you and jeongguk’s matching shoes sprawled out across your dorm floor along with art history notes and energy bar wrappers
  • as you meander through the exhibits, jimin and taehyung get more and more giddy and excited and you kinda- are you five or something
  • but they will not tell you what they’re so excited about and you’re like okay i see how things are gonna be
  • you huff and wander off by yourself because wow they’re being kinda suspicious and yoongi’s picture is still kinda got you in a weird mood
  • you wanna text jeongguk about it
  • so you pull out your phone and you go to text him but then someone tugs on your sleeve
  • it’s a girl, you think like maybe the grade under you?
  • she kinda stands there silently, staring at you and you get all embarrassed like maybe she has the wrong person?
  • but then she asks “hey, are you the one in the big painting up there?”
  • your brows furrow because okay what big painting, this night is getting weirder and weirder so you ask what she means and she takes you by the wrist and drags you over to the painting
  • and low and behold, it is you
  • you cover your mouth with your hands and just stare at it because it’s so much to take in
  • between the way it look slike aesthetically to how accurate it is to like, the actual like, message behind the painting?
  • tbh you probably tear up and you just can’t even think straight because this is the most beautiful thing you’ve ever seen?
  • you’re like what do i do, what do i do
  • you don’t even need to think much about it after that like you just grab your things and you race out of there
  • jeongguk is eating ice cream and playing pokemon on his DS
  • you’re out of breath and you kinda jam your key in the door and you rush in
  • jeongguk is startled to see you because he thought you were with jimin and taehyung the entire night?
  • but nah, here you are, up in his room, looking like a total hot mess
  • “hey, what’s up with you?’
  • and you’re like just be normal, just be normal
  • “jeon jeongguk i’m in love with you too”
  • yes, nailed it
  • jeongguk chokes on his ice cream and you’re like omG
  • but he starts laughing soon after “i think i need cpr”
  • “IM BEING SERIOUS”
  • “and im being serious, come over here and kiss me”
  • and then you two kiss all mushy and he’s really clumsy and it’s really sloppy but you like it because he pulls you down on the bed with him and runs his hands through your hair
  • you two spend the rest of the night cuddling and he names his pokemon after you and tbh he gets a little too overboard with the affection and when jimin comes back he walks in and jeongguk peppering your face with kisses
  • he tells jin and jin promptly calls jeongguk to give him the relationship safety one oh one talk
  • he makes jeongguk put it on speaker so you can hear it tbh
  • cutest couple ever
  • like he shows you at least twenty seven sketchbooks filled with drawings of you
  • okay but imagine like they win a big soccer game and they hoist goalie jeongguk up on their shoulders all cute
  • and he wriggles to get down and he runs over and pulls you into a long dramatic kiss instead
  • all his teammates get the big cooler and dump it over the two of you
  • tells you that he will genetically alter your kids so that they all look like him and you’re like who said i wanna have kids with your coconut head self
  • besides you’ll be in jail before that happens
  • say he’s gonna try to genetically alter himself that he can grow a few more inches and you just say you’re leaving the dorm to take a nap with yoongi or something and he gets SO offended
  • he gets a jacket that has your name and then protection squad on it tbh and you two always match
  • you always make sure that he is healthy and he always makes sure that you are protected
  • probably does squats with you on his back like he did with yoongi
  • and loves you unconditionally tbh the end
Write A Synopsis

I know, you hate writing synopses. I hate writing them, too. They are boring. You don’t get to do voice. There’s no dialog. No fun chase scenes, either. No jokes. No teasing the reader with revelations that are incomplete.

You. Must. Write. A. Synopsis. Anyway.

Really.

If you’re struggling with how to fix a manuscript, go write a synopsis. I promise you, you will see the plot holes easily. You will see problems in character motivation. You will see places where you’re missing information and story. And you will see where you’re going on too long.

There is nothing as good for me editorially as writing a synopsis. I always write one before I send a book off to my editor (or agent) now. Because it’s just a great way to make myself look at the book one last time and see if it’s ready to go.

There are two kinds of synopses. I often write both of them. The first is a chapter by chapter blow-by-blow (often 5-10 pages). The second is an overall peek at the book (about 1 page). The former is great for making me see what scenes excite me and where I need to cut. I also get to see if characters are doing dumb stuff just to make the plot move forward. The latter helps me to see big picture issues like if my world building is working, if I need to do backstory or explanation of a concept or if I’ve got the beginning and ending right for this story.

I know friends who say they do this informally by finding someone who’s never heard them talk about the story before, then making them sit down and listen to the story as a whole. You can see by looking at the audience’s face if this part is working or that part needs to be thrown out and replaced. If you’re a talker, you can do this instead of writing a synopsis. Oh, but wait. You’re a writer, aren’t you? You might as well write it. It’s going to be useful to have a synopsis anyway, later on. Your agent will want it to sell the book. Your editor will want it to use in-house.

One more thing here. If you’re working on a revision of your book, don’t use the old synopsis. You’re going to have to write a new one. OK, you don’t have to, but I highly recommend that you do because using the old synopsis could lead you to being sloppy where you don’t want to be sloppy and not changing things that you need to change. Open a new document and start fresh, even if you’re not doing that with the actual manuscript. It will give you a sense of freshness that will really help in reconceiving the project.

anonymous asked:

I, as one does, have really depressing headcanons about Tony. I'm always up for unrepentant angst to fluff fics, especially if Tony is really sad, upset, guilty, depressed, etc.; just Tony feeling a lot of negative emotions and someone just snuggling him and being like "everything will be okay" because he deserves the best. So it'd be really cool if you wrote just Tony being loved and comforted, thanks

So warnings for depression, and unhealthy thinking. 

“I failed.” Tony whispers, looking at the suit schematic. “I always fail.” He sits there for a while, staring at the screen unseeingly. He pictures all the people who have died because of him, all the bombs he’s ever made. “Can’t live up to the old man’s legacy, can’t even fucking live it down.” He mutters, swiping a hand through the holographic display in frustration. He doesn’t realize he’s crying until a robotic hand appears in his face, clutching a grease covered rag.

Dum-E makes a soft beeping noise, trying to push the rag into Tony’s hand. Tony gives the robot a shaky smile.

“Thanks, this is dirty though.” He says, placing it down on the counter. Dum-E beeps sadly before racing off, and Tony’s breath stutters in his chest, his fingers clenching around the rag. “Stained. Tainted. Ruined. Bad.” He mumbles, fingers twisting around in the rag. Dum-E reappears, pushing a clean rag into his hands. 

“Little robot that could huh.” He climbs out of his chair to sit on the floor, head leaning against Dum-E’s base. The robotic hand attempts to stroke his hair, and face. Tony snorts a laugh, rubbing at his eyes with the rag. 

“I can’t be all bad, huh?” He mumbles, and Dum-E beeps curiously. “I can’t be all bad, I made you.” He says, and there’s a soft noise from the corner, and Butterfingers trundles over, knocking a bucket of screws over. Tony laughs.

“You too.” He says, reaching out to touch Butterfingers base. U whirls nervously from the corner. “Oh come out here U, you guys know I love all of you. The best things I ever created.” He says, and the crowd around him, cold metal on all sides. Tony loves them. 

“I do not have physical form.” JARVIS chimes in, and Tony’s breath catches. “But, I think I speak for all of us, when I say we love you too.” Tony bursts into tears, and the others whir in anxiety, attempting to pet him. 

“You’re all so good to me.” Tony’s breath hitches. “I don’t deserve you guys.” Dum-E pushes on his shoulder, beeping angrily. 

“You do Sir.” JARVIS says, and Dum-E’s claw bobs up and down. “You have taught us all how to be kind.” He explains, and Tony shakes his head. “We look up to you.” 

“Don’t do that.” Tony says, shaking his head. “I’m awful, look up to Rhodey, or Pepper.” 

“Did someone call me?” Rhodey’s voice rings across the lab, and Tony wipes at his eyes. 

“Honeybear! What are you doing here.” He tries to look calm when he turns to Rhodey. 

“I was here to hang out with my best friend in the whole world.” Rhodey says, dropping on the floor next to Tony. “Glad I came too. You having a rough day?” Tony shrugs, and Rhodey wraps his arm around Tony’s shoulders. “It’s gonna be okay, your families here. We have you Tones.” Eventually he falls asleep, face tucked into Rhodey’s shoulder, and blanket provided courtesy of Dum-E. 

STORY TIME (aka why I’m going to hell): so the picture above is a copy of Les Mis that I checked out of my university’s library the other day. So, of course, I’m just sitting there outside one of my classes reading this, when someone walks up to me and is like “are you reading the Bible?”… I would like to say that I handled the situation well and explained that, no, in fact I was reading Les Mis, but I can understand the confusion because it does look slightly like the bible… except I started giggling hysterically because I could help but think “ah, yes, here is my bible titled ‘the miserable people’ in the vernacular, centered on worshiping the Parisian Sewer system”… only obviously I didn’t say any of this out loud, so she just kind of looked at me giggling hysterically and walked away looking mildly offended… I’m going to hell and it’s all because Victor Hugo couldn’t shut the fuck up about the Parisian Sewer system…

So I was using my AA artbook for reference pictures, and I saw a bunch of stuff on the cover that I should’ve seen a loong time ago. Stuff in red is stuff I just noticed

- Trilo’s head flying to space

- Pearls is too short

- Someone let Regent spectate, for some reason.

- You can see Moe’s hat carrot right to the left of Regina, right above creepy doctor man

- The Nickel samurai is sitting just to the left of the Steel Samurai. Only his top knot is visible

- Camera buddies

- Larry can’t stop flirting with everyone

- Maggey and Gumshoe making confetti

- Oldbag is sitting just behind Maggey. I wonder why she isn’t on the other side of the courtroom?

- One of Acro’s bird friends is perched on Gumshoe’s head, along with Polly on his shoulder

- Shoe the cat and Missile are also somehow in the courtroom, residing just in front of Gumshoe

anonymous asked:

(part 1) to get straight to the point, is ushijima /actually/ mean or is he just really, for lack of a better word, dense towards other people and their emotions? i'm asking because i've been thinking about ushijima and oikawa's canon relationship lately, and for a while i thought that ushi was just really, really blunt to the point where he could come off as insensitive and kinda insulting, but that one post with ushi saying to oiks that he "chose the wrong path" followed by pictures of oiks

(part 2) and the rest of the team being really happy together, and it got me thinking. like HOW unaware would ushi have to be of another person’s emotions and what’s considered socially acceptable to say to someone else (even if u dislike them)? the only other reason, that i can see, is he’d say those kinda to oikawa (and hinata and kags too), to be mean/to hurt them. but that just sit right with me, you know? idk thoughts?

I perfectly know the post you’re talking about, and I guess so does every single person in this fandom, it’s impossible to not have seen it. 

I don’t think that Ushijima ever wanted to purposefully hurt Oikawa, or Hinata, or Kageyama, or anyone, ever. 

If we’re talking about Oikawa specifically, I think he said “you chose the wrong path” because he has this perfect idea in his mind of what Oikawa should have chosen to make his talent blossom. Actually, Oikawa is the only player outside Shiratorizawa Ushijima ever acknowledged, he is the setter he always wanted for himself. He saw his potential, recognized his strength, and thought that the only way for him to fully use it was to go to Shiratorizawa. It makes sense. Ushijima wanted the best for Oikawa, and is disappointed by the fact that Oikawa still chose another path, so much that his sentence surely came off as rude and disrespectful. 

Ushijima has his own way to deal with people, and there are things he just can’t see because of who he is as a person. Also, Ushijima doesn't know a thing about what happened in Aoba Johsai. Ushijima doesn’t know why Oikawa chose it. Why he chose to be, live, and grow with his family. Ushijima doesn’t know what Oikawa went through, what he needed, what he wanted. 

We know, but he doesn’t. 

And if it’s alright to be mad and angry because Ushijima can really be off-putting sometimes, I think we should all be a little kinder to him, or at least try to see where he’s coming from. He’s not a monster, he’s just…Ushijima. 

10 musings in costume:

1. If you can hail a taxi in full Glinda, you can hail a taxi at any time.

2. To the dudes drinking Capt Morgan straight out of the bottle and not even trying to hide it, who made fun of me on the street - screw you…  Also, I hope you get arrested because you’re not even smart enough to put it in a brown bag.  Come on. You can make fun of me all you want but how sad is your Saturday when all you have to do is walk the streets of NYC and you can’t even afford to drink in a bar.  Or top shelf.  XD  Or be smart enough to at least hide it… o_O Had you been nice I’d have totally done the Captain pose with you in princess costume and had a fun old time.  I am the tebowing Star Princess after all.

3. I had a Giselle moment running through NYC because my friend forgot her Wicked tickets and ran back to the hotel to get them.  She blended in with the night; I – well, – I stuck out like a sore thumb running three NYC blocks behind her. :P

4. Because of point 3 I was immensely grateful I wore tennis shoes under my dress.  But so sad I didn’t get a photo of them …

5. Close your boning channels.  Close your boning channels.  CLOSE YOUR BONING CHANNELS.  Because I was rushing TWO costumes for Broadwaycon certain things had to be skipped.  One of them was closing my boning channels.  After being in full corset & boned bodice, where the boning wasn’t closed, I had welts under my arms from all the boning that poked me all day.  Not fun!

6. Kids can be charming - sometimes.  One highlight of my trip is when a little boy came up to me in the Javits Center (non-BroadwayCon-area) and asked me to grant him a wish.  He said he wanted to be rich (!!!!!) with lots of enthusiastic exclamation points.  I told him I did too.  And that I hoped it came true for both of us.  Maybe a true fairy would’ve said some crap like “but we’re already rich in health and love and blah blah blah”.  I feel your pain kid, and I understand XD

7. You can spend hours and hours and hours on a retractable, collapsible wand that’s supposed to be super convenient to carry around, and it’ll break the SECOND YOU ENTER THE CON.

8. Don’t expect BroadwayCon techies to have, or even know, what a leatherman is.  Or have pliers, knives, or gaff tape.  Techies, I’m a little disappointed.  Or maybe they were just baffled Glinda the Good was asking for a leatherman to fix her wand?  (like what the…? how the?)

9. People can be mean but people can also be really nice.  I met so many nice people at the con.  I just love that someone can sit down next to me and chat about costumes and theatre like we’ve known each other forever.  I’m awkward and untrustworthy and don’t fit in ever, so things like this mean a lot to me. It was great going to my first con and being around so many kind people.

10. We had a line at Wicked.  We. had a LINE.  I laughed so hard.  We were taking pictures in the Wicked lobby, random people were coming up to us, and it was hectic because it was 10 minutes to curtain.  Someone jumped in and tried to get a photo and the people in front of us were like, “EXCUSE ME we were in LINE!” – and we looked at eachother and laughed and we were like, “we have a LINE? people are LINING UP to take photos with us?”

The kicker: the next day at the Disney Store in Times Square, someone stopped my friend (who was wearing a Wicked hoodie) in the bathroom and apparently they were chatting about how her kids got to meet Glinda and Elphie last night at Wicked – and my friend’s like, hey, that was us!  Ahahahaha.  Small world, even in NYC….

BONUS:

11. Take your own photos – I didn’t take any photos and thought there’d be a million photos of me out there!  I can barely find any :( I hope more surface soon.  Maybe.  I might NOT want to see what I looked like.  Eeep.

Tumblr people appraising psa

I just realized that everyone on tumblr follows normal lives. They’re not paid authors/artists. They have their own jobs, or school, and they do this on the side, yet manage to make art that makes someone wonder if they just took a picture, they manage to write stories that, even without pay, can make you sit in the corner crying like a little baby because of how well written it was. And not only that, but there are loads of other blogs that do other things that take a lot of time. I mean, I don’t even want to THINK about how much time and effort went into phanfiction catalogue. And there are so many more. Blogs that write poems, that do amazing edits, all in our spare time. I can barely wrap my head around the idea that the smut writers just go to school, have this idea, write it out, and no one they know knows.

Ficlet from The Bridge verse

Siblings are a pain.


Amy doesn’t really see why she has to attend Mal Cobb’s birthday party. The Cobbs are more Eames’ friends than hers. She does like Mal, though (even if she’s undecided about Mal’s awkward husband Dom), and she got an invite, so she goes uptown with Eames to the Cobbs’ apartment, gift in hand.

“Mal must like having you in New York,” she says to her brother in the elevator. She doesn’t kid herself that she’s the only reason Eames chose to flee here from Canada (all things considered, she is probably quite low on the list). Eames shrugs jerkily, staring at the elevator doors.

“Let’s not bring it up.”

“Just trying to help you look on the bright side,” she grumbles, before the elevator stops and the doors open with a ding. Eames sighs and steps past her. Miserable as usual.

Horns, for Writers: Reference Resource

Disclaimer: I have a neutral genetic mutation that affects bone structure to a blessedly minor degree. Don’t get excited: I am the least useful X-Man. My ‘horns’, for lack of a less totally awesome descriptor, are super tiny, not immediately obvious, and haven’t grown past that last thin layer of skin yet, but I figured with all the fic I’m seeing around with Horned Humanoids around I might as well throw my two cents into the void for any that may wonder.

The List:

1. You always sorta know they’re there… it’s sorta like. The base feels different from the rest of the bone and it’s. Sort of numb-er? Like a dense cotton ball just under the skin

2. Don’t. Fuckin… grab em? like, I have a deep spiritual sympathy for goats at petting zoos. Like, you don’t realize how fragile your entire skeleton is until someone’s grabbing around, but fuuuck. I don.'to know about how the goat actually *feels* about it, but it makes my skin crawl.

3. Okay not anymore but when mine were smaller, I used to pick up low vibrations? Like, I hated band performances because the bass would vibrate on the spurs and my nerves would go dead, like all pulsing and numb and shit. It’s stopped since I’ve grown but it still happens sometimes on boats or planes

4. Okay, you know how it feels when you get local anaesthetic like you do at the dentist’s? That’s what the whole sensitive part at the base feels like. I got pressure and a bit of temperature, but the nerves are kinda fucked up for anything else.

5. My constant fear is that I will fall and land on them. Because, like…? They’re attached to my head, but they’re not covered by protective gear, so if I just sorta…. Slam my face into some concrete. Ghaaaaahgh. Like…. I envision a throbbing, numbing wave, and just… Broken skin. Exposed bone. HHHHRGnfrgfrtgergfer I don’t wanna think about it

6. Can’t sleep on 'em. Can’t lean on 'em. Better hope nothing solid hits 'em because I got smacked with a book once and FUUUUCKing FUCK, half my face went dead for like eight minutes and it feels like someone tapping a marble into your face with a hammer

7. Want a picture of what they feel like? Touch the bony ridge that sticks out from the side of your wrist. Put a finger there and don’t tap or push, just let it sit. That’s as close as I can describe.

8. When they grow, it feels like heavy vibrations are happening nearby- like when you sit too close to a loud speaker and can feel it in your joints.

9. Okay, a bit more me-specific, but Human skin is super stretchy and isn’t meant to be perforated from the inside. I used to be terrified that mine would outgrow my skin and I’d have to go to a doctor to file them down- hence the unholy fear of falling head-first- but nope. Saved by that sweet sweet body meat

10. I always used to kinda wish they were symmetrical and longer cause I thought it would look wicked sweet but in retrospect 13 year old me wasn’t confident enough for leggings; forget visual correlations with occult deities

11. I straight up forgot I had them for like five years and when I remembered it was like an out of body experience my guy
