Yes, I procrastinated on this procrastination masterpost.

But that’s totally natural, and no one is ever going to completely cut out their procrastination habits. However, here are some (probably overused and not that helpful) tips that you can attempt to keep you from those nasty habits.

1.       When you get home, DON’T flop onto the couch that’s been calling your name since the second you arrived. Flop onto a different one. Lol jk don’t do that. Instead, head straight to your desk or whatever working space you have and figure out your homework set up. This is a great way to get yourself on track as soon as you get home and decreases the time spent away from schoolwork.

2.       Get the bigger tasks done first. Yes, the ones that you probably already procrastinated on and have left for the last day. The ones that aren’t just a simple essay but also needs two back up articles, a 3D model, a power point presentation, original soundtracks and a whole filmed and edited movie. Yes, those projects. Once you get down to the last of your tasks, they’ll be quick and easily finished.

3.       Don’t stress. This is obviously easier said than done however I want to mention it because it truly helps. When we stress we make our problems seem bigger than what they really are. This in turn only adds stress and keeps us from starting those assignments because we know think they will take us a long time to complete.

4.       Keep yourself organized and clean. I know that when I’m working in a disastrous environment, much less do I want to get up and work. If you keep your school work organized and your room tidy, you’ll have one less excuse to not start on your homework.

5.       Don’t forget to enjoy some music. I have always been a music oriented person and simply cannot work without it. Put on your favorite playlist or whatever helps you work and begin. It helps to pass the time and makes you forget about how long the assignment will take to finish.


There you go guys! This masterpost has been multiple times on numerous occasions but I hope it still helped in the end. My question for today is, what do you listen to when doing school work?

Also! Don’t forget to check out the rest of this series here!

-much love, studyessie ♡

Tom was an idiot.

Sony gave him a very expensive costume and forgot to get it back from him. And what was the first thing he did with it?

Let his brother and his best friend try it on.

“Sony forgot to take away the Spider-Man costume…” Tom was saying to his camera. When he turned it off, he went to get the costume through the curtains.

“Tom,” you said. “You know, I’m pretty sure this isn’t what Sony wanted you to do with the suit.”

Tom turned to look at you. “Y/N, it’s totally fine.”

“Uh, what?” You sputtered. “Tom, I was there, a couple feet away from you, when they told you how much that suit cost. I had to pick your chin up off the floor.”

Alive - Bruce Wayne x Reader (Smut so obviously NSFW)

Summary : The Batman died months ago…Or, did he ? 

I decided to indulge some of you who keep asking for more Bruce smut so…here’s more Bruce smut. With feelings though because I HATE writing things without any emotions. I’m not into just the filthy smut with no story..and now I surely hope that I was able to write emotions/feelings properly up. NSFW so if you’re not comfortable with those things DO NOT READ ! I’ve got plenty of stories that are totally not NSFW you can check out instead (link to my masterlist down below). Hope you’ll like it :

_________________________________________________

Your eyes were betraying you. 

No. 

Your brain was betraying you.

That was it, you had tipped over the edge of madness. You were definitely and irreversibly crazy. After months of grief and pain, it finally happened.

Because he couldn’t be there. You had wished for months and months for him to be by your side, and now, your own mind was playing trick on you. Because he could. Not. Be. There. No.

And yet…Yet why weren’t you the only one reacting to his sudden appearance ?

 Your children gasped, and Alfred made a loud sound of surprise. 

And why were Diana and Clark by his side ? If it was an hallucination, why would you see them with him ? Why would you hallucinate them too ? Especially since you still hadn’t forgive them for what they did…

Your oldest is the first one to launch himself towards him, and your boy’s body make a sound as he hits his father’s. A very real sound…You’re confused. 

Ho…how ? Bruce’s arms wrap around his son and…he does seem real.

For a second, you think maybe it’s a dream. One of many you had ever since Bruce’s death. Because this is all too good to be true. 

Because this is impossible. Because…Because you saw him die.

The memory of this awful moments comes flooding to you.

************

You saw him died. Or rather, you saw him being swarmed by monsters on Apokolips. It was the same thing really. There was absolutely no chance he survived that day. Even less chances he survived that long. The many months.

It was all so blurry, your own mind shielding you from the trauma of loosing the love of your life. You couldn’t remember everything in details.  

Him having to stay behind to disarm a weapon that would wipe all life in the universe. Being the only one who could do it. 

Him begging Diana and Clark to drag you to safety, because he knew you would never leave him willingly…And, trying as best they could to ignore your screams of despair, they did get you safe and sound. 

It was the least they could do. They owed him that much. After all, he was sacrificing himself for the greater good. And though it cost them a lot to leave their best friends behind…They knew they weren’t any other solutions. 

If even the Batman, even the man that had a plan for everything, from A to Z, said : “this is our only chance”…then it was the only way. 

And as the portal to Apokolips was closing, and you were safe back in the Watchtower, the last vision you had of him was his smile to you. Him mouthing “I will always love you”, before a wave of creatures buried him under them. 

Your supplication to open the portal again broke all your friends from the League’s heart. And when J’onn told you it wasn’t possible, that Bruce made sure the entire thing would fry when the mission was done (for safety, so that they wouldn’t bring any of the nightmarish beasts that lived on Apokolips back with them), you lost your cool. Your lost all control. 

Your screams of pain still haunt them at night. 

They had to give you a sedative. And against their will, called your sons to pick you up. They had to tell them…And it’s with a broken and heavy heart that they brought you back home. Took care of you as you always did for them. Because you needed them. You needed their love. Their support. And they needed you. 

One of the central pillar that was holding this family was no more. 

Their father was dead. 

The love of your life was dead. 

Bruce…Was never coming back.

hello peeps!! as everyone knows (or not) my originals are mostly masterposts and a few of you have asked me ‘how to make a masterpost’ so this masterpost is all about that, hope this helps! :^)

basics :

what is a masterpost?
consider a masterpost as an article. it consists of your advice and tips about a particular topic in an organized manner.

how do I make a masterpost?
the rest of this masterpost is all about that, keep reading!

why should I make a masterpost?
well, because you want to. they are quite fun to make and most importantly, masterposts are a great way to get your blog out there because people love™ reading about your techniques to stay productive and stuff like that.

making a masterpost :

step one : pick a topic

there are two general ways of doing this -

  • look into yourself (does this make sense) and find out your flaws. Maybe you’re bad at time management or you tend to procrastinate a lot. pick any one of those flaws and write a masterpost on it!
  • ask people. personally I do this once every two months. you can just go on Tumblr and be like, “hey guys, I’m thinking about writing articles soon so what are some topics you would like to see?” and I’m pretty sure your followers will give you ideas!

step two : writing about the topic

some general tips about writing an article -

  • start with an introduction like you would when writing a essay. this can be just a simple greeting or just explaining the topic in a few words. (in this article, the introduction is the basics portion)
  • now move on to the content portion! about the content, here are some stuff to take notice of -
  1. always write stuff you believe in. do not put down points you haven’t tried out and have just heard about from somewhere.
  2. don't​ copy from other articles please!
  3. the masterpost shouldn’t be hella long or hella short. it should be just hella perfect.
  4. we really really really like numbered shit. this is a pro tip, write your article in points; it’s easier to read and we just like it that way.
  • you’re almost there! let’s do the conclusion now!
  1. end on a positive note always. it makes your article a more pleasurable experience! an example - “hope this helped you! I hope you are doing well, stay brilliant love!”
  2. it’s really helpful to link your other masterposts down your article. mainly because people might want to check your blog out and having your articles is a huge help!
  3. you can also link your about to the ending line so that people can get to know about you.  an example -

 love, xyz (and link your about to the word ‘xyz’)

some pro hacks *wink wink* -

  • you might not want to bold the headers of your articles like some people do, eg: on a article about productivity, let’s suppose one point is about waking up early and then you go on to explain that tip. Now dO NOT bold 'waking up early’!! why you ask? this is because lazy folks like me will just read the headers! we’ll skip thru your article and now we don’t want that, do we?
  • making a graphic for your masterpost is also really cool (shh i just use MS Paint lmao)
  • write in points as I earlier said because we love numbered shit.
  • be consistent with your masterposts!! personally, I love when someone comes out with helpful masterposts on a regular basis and I definitely follow them. And they’ll def follow you if you are a regular at this!
  • always, always, always edit and recheck your masterposts. it is sure as hell full of grammatical errors and misspellings. dO CHECK YOUR ARTICLE!! THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT!!1! (this is honestly the most important tip. I have hella experience with it for once I wrote, 'sit’ instead of 'site’ rip ;;)
  • dO NOT write your article directly on the Tumblr site. Tumblr sucks, everyone knows that, and it will mess up your masterpost, I give you a 200% guarantee. Instead type out your masterpost first in a doc or word file, heck just use the notepad option on your phone, but never try the Tumblr site, okay?

and that’s it of this huge rambly article, it’s a wrap! I hope this helped you in some way, remember to stay wonderful love! :’) x

if you have any questions regarding anything I said up there, feel free to send in a message!

go check out my other masterposts here and you can always sent in a request for a masterpost as my ask box is always open!!

love, Taylor  (´。• ᵕ •。`) ♡

Hey guys! I promised a tutorial so here’s a little one.

I’m just going to explain overall what I did and not go into anything too detailed. Feel free to throw me a question if something is left too unclear!

gif made by

My wings are articulated and they’re not attached to my hands in any ways (Though I’m planning to change that by adding a string connected to my hand because my original way of pulling them up didn’t work, they’re too heavy with the feathers).

Here are some pictures of the base:

The idea of articulated wings is that the whole structure moves when you lift/move one part.

As you can see from the picture there are 3 longer and 2 shorter pieces. They’re made out of plywood but I’ve heard that balsa wood is a better option.

There are a total of 7 (14) joints at the points where the pieces of wood overlap. Each wing is attached to the back with a hinge so that I can fold them behind me (Useful in crowds and when walking through doors).

Then there are the feathers, aka the reason I never want to touch scissors again

I used 7m (23 feet) of white felt. I soaked the whole amount of fabric (in pieces) in a mixture made out of glue and water to harden them. It takes at least one or two days for them to dry completely. I forgot to flip some of them around at least once so they got stuck on the floor, dont do that. Cover your floors! I used some big trash bags I found lying around.

I also glued some sticks to the longest feathers after cutting them out to give them more support and to make them look more feathery–like. I made probably 400–500 feathers. I recommend getting your friends to help cutting them if you don’t want to lose your mind :’D

Getting the feathers attached was a tricky part. You can’t just glue them to the base or they’ll be sticking into odd directions when opening/closing the wings.

They need to move around freely so basically I just sticked a loop of wire to each feather. Then I put another piece of wire through it and secured it into place by twisting the two ends together. After that I glued the thing to the frames.

So beautiful! But hey, they aren’t supposed to show. Hot glue is gonna be your best friend at this point.

The biggest feathers are all attached to one big ”ring” made out of thicker wire. Big mess and the backside of the wings.

The feathers are in 3 layers, each layer overlapping the previous feathers:

The primaries and secondaries (1st layer) are painted from both front- and backside. The 2nd and 3rd layers cover the framework so you’re gonna need a lot of feathers over them. Note that wings don’t look the same from both sides!

I used the same technique for attaching the 2nd layer as for the 1st (wire-thingy) but I glued 3 feathers into each other to save time.

The 3rd layer is just glued to the top because will face the right way even if you do so.

When I had attached the feathers they were just hanging straight down (gotta love gravity). I had to do something to get them to lift up when I open the wings so I sewed them together. There goes a thread in the middle of each feather giving the wings also a maximum opening point (which is pretty big). I made some knots that the thread doesn’t slip away.

You won’t be able to do anything with these if you can’t get them on. I made a harness that you put on like a backbag through a hole in the shirt.

And woop, there it is! A pair of hella big articulated wings.

A picture of them closed

…aaand open.

–––––––––––––––––––––––

Some notes!

– This is kind of obvious but making wings like this is expensive and time consuming. I used probably around 100€ for the materials and the hours I’ve spent on this project are also close to a hundred (2 weeks of working from 10AM to 8PM or more, ugh)

– If you decide to do something like this please be careful not to strain yourself too much! I was crouching on the floor for many days in a row and my back and knees hurt like hell in the evenings. Also my right hand still hurts from bending all the wire although it’s been a week already.

– You’re gonna need space. No, not a small corner with a little table, I mean a huge amount of space. For the most of the time you need to work with the wings open (on a floor unless you have an enormous table), and mine are twice the size of me! tho I’m a 16–year–old short girl The wingspan is around 4+ meters, so, yeah. Of course you could always make smaller ones which I really do recommend.

– Surprise, this is also really messy! Especially the feathers make a big mess and you’re gonna get little pieces of felt stuck everywhere.

– This requires some sort of knowledge of using different tools. And skill. Feel free to challenge yourself but this isn’t the easiest sort of thing to do. It was hard even for me although I’ve made a pair of (still) wings before.

– These were surprisingly easy to wear around the convention even though the place was small. They are pretty heavy but not too much to not be able to wear them for 2 days straight.

– I bet that there are a lot better ways to do some parts and I’m fixing them & updating this tutorial when I can figure out better alternatives. (Also if you can think of something before me, send me a message!)

I hope that this was at least somewhat useful although it’s not really detailed. If you do make something inspired by this I’d love to see the results. Also it would be great to put a link to this so that other people can also get help making a pair uvu

10) escapade (buy the book there!) / relief next to me by dolce_piccante (tumblr: @haydolce)

rntm summary: AU. What happens when a baker and a graphic designer meet via a very specific Craigslist post? Fate, friendship, food, and maybe more. 

9) here in the afterglow by fondleeds (tumblr: @fondleeds)

“If you hadn’t noticed, I don’t have many friends,” Louis whispers, the blossom of insecurity in his stomach unfurling and clawing its way into his throat.

Harry is silent for a long time, and then he speaks; a soft, slow uncurl that makes Louis’ stomach shake. “I’ll be your friend.”

1970’s AU. In a tiny town in Idaho, Louis’ life is changed forever by the arrival of a curious stranger.

8) never let me go by loveisalaserquest17 (tumblr: @loveisalaserquest17)

“Harry! I’ll tell you what,” Louis exclaims, clapping his hands together. There’s a big grin on his face. “If both of us are still single by your thirtieth birthday, we’ll marry each other.”
Harry’s head snaps up, eyes widening. “What?” 

Harry and Louis have been friends forever, but they couldn’t be more different. One night, with a little too much alcohol, they make a pact to marry in ten years if they’re both still single.
Now, one month before the deadline, Louis is willing to do whatever it takes to avoid ending up with his best friend. But is he, really? | Loosely inspired by The 10 Year Plan

7) wild and unruly / love is a rebellious bird by gloria_andrews & 100percentsassy (tumblr: @gloriaandrews@100percentsassy)

wau summary: Harry is a cowboy sitting on the biggest oil reservoir in Wyoming, and Louis is the paralegal assigned to pressure him into selling his land. 

liarb summary: AU in which the boys still make music. Louis is the concertmaster of the London Symphony Orchestra, Harry is the New! and Exciting! interim conductor/ex-cello prodigy who “has made Mozart cool again” according to Esquire Magazine (Louis hates him immediately, which is definitely why he internet stalked him in his dark bedroom late at night that one time), and Niall is the best. Zayn and Liam are around too.Don’t hum Bolero.

6) paint me in a million dreams by green_feelings (tumblr: @greenfeelings)

Harry’s one of Hollywood’s biggest actors, has made a name for himself in prestigious films and lives the life of a superstar. There’s just one thing missing to make it picture-perfect, but the one Harry’s in love with is completely out of reach for him. Enter Louis, one of Hollywood’s biggest actors himself, who just came out of the closet and taps new genres in the industry. When Louis sacks the role Harry auditioned for in Scorsese’s next big film, their irrational feud starts. Who could have guessed it would get even worse when for promo season, their teams decide to present them as a couple for publicity?

In short, Harry’s in love with someone and doesn’t care about dating anyone else, Louis never felt home in L.A., Liam writes love songs for someone he shouldn’t write love songs to, and Niall makes everything better with good food.

5) swim in the smoke by whoknows (tumblr: @crazyupsetter)

“What about this, Captain?” Liam asks, nudging the boy kneeling between their feet with the toe of his boot. The boy hisses and swipes at him, slurring out something unintelligible around the makeshift gag Niall had to stuff in his mouth. He misses by a mile and tries again, just as ineffectively.

Harry looks down at him, at the way the sun streams over his face and shoulders, at the way the gag stretches his mouth, lips pink and chapped. He’s lithe and pretty, smudged all over with dirt. They had found him tied up below deck, mostly unconscious, next to a barrel full of gold. He’s clearly a prisoner, but there’s something familiar about him, something that niggles at Harry’s brain. Something he can’t quite put his finger on.

“Put him in my cabin,” Harry decides, turning back to deal with the rest of the loot. The boys screams out jumbled curse words at Harry’s back, muffled by the gag, and Harry can’t understand any of it.

4) in vogue by otpwhatever (tumblr: @otpwhatever)

‘Is that why David Beckham has been featured multiple times on the pages of your life’s work? Does your criteria seriously consist of one thing – a man’s ass?’
‘Well the ass is a man’s best asset,’ Harry smirks, holding the Martini glass high up his face. 'And don’t call the magazine my life’s work. There are far more important things in life, Louis Tomlinson, than what’s printed on the pages of a magazine.’

Fashion AU. Louis is the editor in chief of Vogue magazine, and Harry’s running British GQ. Featuring Zayn as the crazy creative director and Louis’ confidant, Liam as the sports writer that gets to sit front row at fashion week and DJ Neil as the only sane person in the whole story. (There are no skinny jeans in this fic)

3) the wonderlands by stylinsoncity (tumblr: @alienproof) - AND its companion fic!

“Somewhere between chaos and control — these are the wonderlands.”

Harry’s daughter, Andy, is signed to Louis’ girl band. Her path to success is marked by competition, chaos, and for Harry, a love affair.

2) say hallelujah say goodnight by alivingfire (tumblr: @alivingfire)

Louis is an angel who is just a little too bad to be good, Harry is a demon who is just a little too good to be bad, and they’re both a little too in love to be impartial when angels and demons go to war.

Louis has been alive since life was a mere concept; he watched the summoning of Man into existence, he was there when Eve took the apple. He’s seen seas break the world into separate pieces, he’s watched empires crumble into dust. He’s seen wildfire consume cities, he’s seen the world painted white with snow. He has known the most beautiful humans to walk the planet, he has watched the most powerful mortals gather their riches and influence around them and then die just like the poorest, weakest humans do. He’s met humans whose motives defy explanation, people who use their lives as battering rams, as tools, as weapons, as chess pieces.

None of that stopped Louis in his tracks.

But Harry did.

1) young & beautiful by velvetoscar (tumblr: @mizzwilde)

Louis, to his horror, attends an elitist university in which the name Zayn Malik means something, Niall Horan doesn’t stop talking, there are pianos everywhere, and Harry Styles, only son of a drug-addled, clinically insane ex-rocker, has a perfect smile and empty eyes.

Lams One Shot

————————————————————–

Alex’s POV

I sat in my quiet dorm room, clutching the chestpiece of John’s stethoscope on my chest where my heart was. The beat was steady, as I inhaled and exhaled slowly to stay calm and relaxed. So far, John’s method had worked on me. College stress had made me really unhealthy, which made John worry.


Then again, why did he worry? I continued to stare at the floor in silence, listening to the soft beating; I was going to be fine.


The door clicked open and I heard John’s voice echo through the small room.


“Alex, you in here?” he asked. He closed the door and walked over to his bed, putting his gym bag down on the by his desk. “There you are!”


I glanced over at him - something I shouldn’t have done. He was wearing a tank top, which enhanced his muscular arms.


“I just finished working out…” His hair was pulled back in a pony tail - a little tousled and damp with sweat.


“…go down to that one shop…” His freckles were still perfect on his face, giving him the soft kind of look over his tough structure.


“…a good break from studying…” And his eyes - those hazel eyes gleamed with excitement and pure happiness. How was he so calm with everything?


I felt my face heat up and I quickly looked down at the floor; my heartbeat quickening. The loudness of my thoughts and my rapid heart beat blocked out John’s words, leaving me trapped in confusion.


Why was I acting like this? It was from day one. When we first met and discovered we were roommates.


That was the day I felt something, but always let my studies come first. But just then I had realized…


I think I love him.

HOLY SHIT

I hope you like it. If this were on my computer, I would be able to check if my sentences actually made sense. 😂 There are some parts where it sounds so extra that it’s cringy.

I owner trained my assistance dog - which means I did it myself. I did consult 2 trainers, one of which is my sister who happens to be a trainer and she assisted in the process. 

The first thing I would recommend you do is join the facebook groups Aussie SD/AD and Australian Assistance/Service Dog Handlers Support Group. There you will be able to get feedback and responses from a variety of people in the Aussie AD community, with experience with a whole range of issues. Their is a screening process for these groups to ensure the safety of members so you will be sent a message with some questions. Existing members are also usually asked to vouch for new members as being legit (because as you may know fake service dog teams is a big issue in our community) so if you wish to join you can PM me your fb name at chronicallyspoonless.tumblr.com or if you want to have a more ongoing conversation about this you can contact me there. 

I would also recommend you start following some service/assistance dog teams on social media- a lot of us have fb pages. This will give you more insight into what life with a AD is like. Many of the members of the groups I mentioned above have pages. I will give you some links to good ones down the bottom 

Marvelous Mutts Dog Services also posts some really good information and is run by the person who runs one of the AD groups and is a big advocate in the OT community. The infographic of costs comes from her. 

In terms of qualifying as an owner trained team - basically you just need to be disabled by your illness. In Australia Assistance Dogs (AD’s) are covered under the Disability Discrimination Act 1992 (commonly referred to as the DDA). This covers both owner trained and program dogs. Your state will also have its own laws about assistance animals. 

 Section 9 of the DDA states that:  

(2)  For the purposes of this Act, an assistance animal is a dog or other animal: 

  • (a)  accredited under a law of a State or Territory that provides for the accreditation of animals trained to assist a persons with a disability to alleviate the effect of the disability; or  
  • (b)  accredited by an animal training organisation prescribed by the regulations for the purposes of this paragraph; or   
  • ( c) trained:      
  •       (i)  to assist a person with a disability to alleviate the effect of the disability; and      
  •       (ii)  to meet standards of hygiene and behaviour that are appropriate for an animal in a public place. 

Section 9c is the part that allows for owner trained assistance animals. To decode the legal stuff: basically this means that to be a real assistance dog protected by the DDA there are 3 main components: The handler must have a disability The dog must be trained in tasks specific to needs arising from that individual’s disability. The dog must be able to behave appropriately in public, be toilet trained, non-aggressive, clean and healthy. 

So in terms of your question about qualifying - from an OT perspective - its not hard if you have a disability all you need is a doctor who knows you well to agree that you are disabled by your illness and that an assistance dog would assist you in dealing with your disability, and the doctor has to be willing to sign their name to it basically. 

In terms of qualifying for a dog from a program - that is almost certainly more difficult but as I have not had a program dog (yet - i am currently looking into it as an option for my next dog), I would say your best source of information is to check those FB groups I mentioned and ask there - there are many people with program dogs in there, including people with program dogs for autism.

I’d also like to mention there is a middle ground category - there are some organisations (orgs) that allow you to train a suitable dog (may be your own dog, you may purchase a dog, they may assist you in finding a suitable dog) and have the dog tested and qualified by the org to say yes this dog meets legal standards. The org will provide you with legal support and will help when there are access issues. MindDog is one of the best know orgs that does this for people with mental health conditions and although autism is a neurodevelopmental disorder it is covered by the DSM and still covered by MindDog. 

In my opinion, assistance dogs are fantastic tools and I owe my life to one, but fair warning that it is not an easy solution or a cure all. They take a lot of work and its not something you can do on a whim - Im not saying you are like that - I tell everyone this because these are living creatures not a piece of technology or a medication that you can just trial and throw away if it doesnt work.

anonymous asked:

Hi Steph! I'm new to the fandom, could you please share with me the best Johnlock fanfics (in your opinion)? There is so much of them I'm lost... and I don't know which are the 'legendary' and 'must read' ones. Thank you so much! <3

Hi Nonny!

First of all, WELCOME!! I hope you are enjoying your time here!! OH GOSH, okay so funny thing, I’m actually currently making a list of ALL of my favourite fics ever, because someone else asked me ages ago, and now I have 5 other people asking me LOL.

As I explained in this post here, many people have already made great lists of “the best fanfics” in the fandom… But of course I’m stupidly picky about my fics.

Anyway, since I’m already working on an entire list of my biggest most fave fics ever in every place everywhere, how about for now, since I’m due for it, I give you my last bookmarked fics since I last did a list last month? I hope these will tide you over Lovely! In the meantime, you can also check out my ‘my fic recs’ blog tag, and I’ve a tonne of lists, some of which you can see here

The Prize We Sought Is Won by deathfrisbees (E, 4,610 w. || First Time, Mild D/S, Oral, Military Kink, Bottomlock) – Sherlock’s in love, or in lust, or both–unfortunately, the object of his affections is not only his completely oblivious flatmate, but said flatmate would probably run screaming into the hills should he find out. John’s been invited to a wedding–unfortunately, the groom used to serve under him back in Afghanistan, and requests that John wear a uniform he’s honestly not sure he fits into. Unfortunately for both flatmates, Sherlock’s got a military kink the size of Kandahar and John wants to know if he actually can fit into this uniform or if his eyes are deceiving him. It goes from there.

Facade by distantstarlight (M, 4,715 w. || Fluff, John’s Beard, No-Shave November, Grumpy Sherlock, Clueless Sherlock) – Sherlock is highly irritated with a challenge John has agreed to undertake. Why does he need to grow a beard anyway?

Telling the Bees by siennna (G, 5,174 w. || Fluff, Beekeeping, POV Sherlock, Love Confessions) – It took a beat of silence for the words to settle in, before both of them realized what John said. “You—” Sherlock started. “I—” John said at the same time. “Love me?

With This Ring by Quesarasara (E, 9,121 w. || Est. Rel., Marriage Proposal, Angst and Fluff and Smut, Idiots in Love, Embarrassing Hospital Visits) – Sometimes even the best of plans go wrong. And sometimes wrong turns out to be exactly right.

The Painted Man by jinglebell (E, 9,894 w. || Tattoos, Scent / Tattoo Kink, Rough & Tender Sex, Fluff and Smut, Obsessive / Jealous Sherlock, Touch Starvation) – Here stood John Watson – middle name, Hamish, ex-RAMC captain and field medic, favourite brand of jam: Duerr’s, preferred toothpaste: Mentadent. Loyal, steadfast, interesting John had just done the most unpredictable thing merely by being.John’s body was covered, neck-to-waistband, shoulder-to-elbow, in tattoos.

Confidential by sussexbound (M, 10,654 w. || Epistolary, John’s Journal, First Kiss / Time, Fluff, Self-Acceptance/Discovery, John’s Sexuality) – When John accidentally stumbles upon the Confidential file Sherlock’s been keeping on him he is both angry and curious.

I am the sort of person to take a break from my life and when I come back after two years, I expect to find it exactly as I left it. In reality I find it shattered to pieces. (I actually equate you with my life. When did I start doing that?)

Where Else Would I Be? by cwb (E, 34,910 w. || Retirementlock, Domestic Fluff, Falling in Love, Parentlock, Fluff and Smut, Reminiscing) – John and Sherlock’s five-year-old granddaughter spends the weekend with them in Sussex. Sherlock happily indulges her whims, and John takes care of them while quietly revisiting the past thirty years of their lives together.

Left by lifeonmars (M, 45,153 w. || Magical Realism) – John Watson is left-handed. He’s tried not to let it affect his life, but as any Lefty knows, that’s almost impossible. {{for some reason this wasn’t bookmarked??? I’ve loved this story for years and apparently I didn’t bookmark it??? News to me.}}}

Bridging the Ravine by SilentAuror (E, 58,883 w. || Post S4, Couple For a Case, Bed-Sharing, First Times, Confessions, Awkwardness, Sex Trafficking) – Sherlock and John go undercover at Ravine Valley, a therapy centre for same-sex male couples in an investigation into a possible human trafficking ring.

Set roughly six nine months after series 4.

briarsrose  asked:

Do you have any easy sock knitting patterns for beginners?

Hi @briarsrose - thanks for your question.  I searched the ‘Knitted Socks’ tag on my blog and there’s some goodies in there (so definately check that out), but for a totally beginner knitted sock, I don’t think you can do much better than the Easy Peasy Socks! pattern from FreeStitches.  Click through the link for the free pattern.  

Hope that helps! :-)

@mye.bi - Instagram

I didn’t want to announce it at first because I thought starting fresh on a website was a great way to see if I could gather a new public, but since everything I’ve been doing since a month is traditional and my Instagram is specifically made for traditional art so far, I thought that maybe the people who were interested could eventually check it out and skip it if they ever don’t like it. I’ll post my favorite traditional works as batches most of the time on tumblr/dA, anyway.
But yes, if you want to check all my doodles and practices (from roughest to most detailed) to perhaps know more about how my art is going to evolve, my art Instagram plays the role of an album that will follow my art’s development! <3 All my Inktober drawings are posted there!

    @mye.bi  

Thanks for reading and supporting my work! Finding an art style is tough, but even though I do have all my life to figure it out, experimenting might just be the best part! ♥ If all those doodles/practices don’t interest you, don’t forget about my digital/best traditional artworks art blog @myebi!

Thank you @yugogeer12 for helping this blog

and an apology for not thanking you sooner, but I felt bad saying thanks to a person I barely knew and of course what it has done, so I finally had the chance to read epictale, and well I didn’t knew what else to make it off, but since this an ut blog might as well make it all the way ut.

which by the way you can read here –> [Link]

But anyways, thankyou for you great help, and I hope this might shed some light of her au aswell, absolutely fun, I do recomend it for thos who haven’t check it out!
