ask not what your dashboard can do for you

Greetings, everyone. I hope you’re having a wonderful day. I’m here tonight to present you with a short guide to Tumblr for witches who may be interested in starting a blog here. 

This post is obviously geared towards witches wandering the internet, but maybe some who are already here on Tumblr will enjoy it, too. I’ll be talking about the benefits to joining the Tumblr witch community, as well as some tips for getting started! Here we go!

What’s a “Tumblr witch?”

There’ve been culture-related magazines that have done huge articles on “Tumblr witches” and the witchcraft community on Tumblr, painting the whole thing as some kind of fashion trend or weird millennial hangout. 

I’ve been involved with the Tumblr witch community for three years, and I can say that most of these articles don’t quite reflect what the witchcraft community on Tumblr is like. 

A lot of them tend to paint it as an ideologically, culturally, and aesthetically monolithic trend, when in reality, it’s not. While it’s true that many Tumblr-going witches enjoy similar things or share fashion trends, witchcraft itself is not a trend, nor a fashion statement, nor is it the sole focus of the community.

In reality, a “Tumblr witch” is just what the name implies. A “Tumblr witch” is a witch who uses Tumblr as a blogging platform/CMS. Nothing more, nothing less. It’s true that there’s a large community of us, but we’re quite diverse

While many of us are young (millennials), not all of us as (I’m not), nor are we all of the same religion or mindset. You might even say that “Tumblr Witch” isn’t even a useful term, at all! Still, Tumblr is a great content management system for witches.

I think what makes Tumblr strong as a blogging platform for witches is that there’s an extremely diverse community here already in existence. So, in short, don’t buy into too much nonsense about what a “Tumblr witch” does or believes, because everyone’s unique. 

Again, the only real way I can see to define a “Tumblr witch” is just “a witch who uses Tumblr.” It’s as simple as that! It’s definitely not some kind of tradition or mindset for witches - it’s just a matter of what blogging platform the witch uses.

Straightforward (Jay Park)

Anonymous asked: Hii can I request a jay park scenario where the reader and him are Best friends and he confesses to you 😆

Originally posted by clubeskimo

    “So, what do you want to do today?” you asked, putting your sneaker-clad feet on Jay’s dashboard and watching with no surprise as he shoved them off (the exact same thing happened most times you rode in his car).

    “How about we go to the Bentley dealership and you can buy me a hella nice cleaning kit for this car and then demonstrate how it works? I’ve never gotten this as dirty as you have,” he replied, turning the key in the ignition.

    “That’s not true!” you protested. “I’ll I’ve done is gotten a little dirt on the dashboard. You were the genius who decided to get a white leather interior and then eat flaming hot Cheetos in it while drunk. Did you ever get out the stains?”

    He frowned at you.

    “No good enough comeback for that one, eh?” you asked. “I didn’t think so. So, like I was saying, where are we going?”

    “Well, maybe I’ll just drop you off at your apartment again,” he said. “You’re being kinda annoying…”

    “Jay!” you protested.

    “I’m kidding you, geez,” he said, glancing at you with a playful smile before his eyes returned to the road and his expression became serious.

     “What’s on your mind?” you asked.

     “What are you talking about?” he asked, not looking over at you.

    “I know you, and there’s something you’re not telling me right now,” you said. “When you smile for real, you smile a long time, and that one lasted for like two seconds.”

    “You’re close to being able to read my mind, but not quite there,” he said. “I’m fine. Seriously. Anyway, I was thinking maybe we could just go shopping? Morning on a weekday- the mall shouldn’t be too busy.”

Target Adventure (Grayson)

Requested by @dolandaydream: “an imagine about a target adventure with Grayson”

————

*Grayson’s POV*

I finished setting up my vlog camera on the dashboard and spoke to it for a minute.

“Alright, I just got in the car, on my way to pick up (Y/N). She’s spending the weekend with me and Ethan, and I’m pretty excited.” I said. I turned up the radio as I drove over to (Y/N)’s house to pick her up. I pulled up to her house and saw that she was standing at the end of her driveway. 

“There’s my girl.” I said as I turned the camera around and focused on her as she waved at it.

“Hey baby.” She said as she got in the car.

“Hey.” I said as I leaned over to kiss her.

“Can we stop at Target on the way back to your place? I need to pick up a few things for this weekend.” She asked.

“Yeah, sure.” I said. I pulled out of her neighborhood and we made our way to Target. I grabbed the camera off the dashboard and vlogged our time in Target.

“Awe babe, can we get starbucks?” I asked.

“Only if you promise to be a good boy while we’re here.” She said.

“Okay I promise.” I said, causing (Y/N) to laugh. “What do you need?” I asked.

“I need something else to wear. I don’t really like anything I packed for this weekend.” She said.

“Oh god, we’re gonna be in here for hours.” I joked.

“Whatever. I promise it wont take long.” She said. We walked around the clothes section for a bit and she picked out a couple new outfits. We ended up walking the rest of the store, eventually making our way around to the toys.

“You are such a child.” She laughed as I pushed the ‘try me’ buttons on all the toys on the shelf as we walked pass them. We walked through the rest of the toys and found a ball on the floor and started to kick it around before one of the workers came to stop us.

“Look what you did you got us in trouble.” I laughed as we walked back to the front of the store to check out.

“You started it.” She said as she shook her head. We got up to the registers and stood in line to check out.

“Of course you’d pick the longest line for us to stand in.” I whined.

“You’ll be alright.” She said as she leaned her head on my chest.

“I might not be. You don’t know.” I said. After we checked out, we went over to the starbucks, ordered our drinks and sat at one of the tables. I turned off the camera for a bit, while we sat there and just talked for a bit.

“So, what are our plans for this weekend?” She asked.

“I’m not sure yet, but I do know that I wanna take you out for a romantic dinner tomorrow night. It’s the first weekend we’ve spent together in months, so I wanna have a special date night, just the two of us.” I explained.

“Sounds good to me. Good thing I just got a cute new outfit.” She said with a smile. We sat at the table for a little while longer, chit chatting while we finished up our drinks. Once we finished, we headed back out to the car. I turned the camera back on and blasted the radio as (Y/N) and I had our own version of carpool karaoke on the way home.

PSA for gif makers

It’s great that we’re in a new era and Seventeen has fansigns, along with fancams that are released for fans to see their cute interactions. But lately there’s been an influx of fancam gifs on tumblr that are not properly credited―some are from fansites that don’t even allow gifing―on our dashboard. 

We would like to just take a moment and remind everyone that there are certain rules when it comes to editing fansites: 

(!!!!) If you are unsure whether a fansite allows gifing or not, please refrain from doing so. They did not give proper consent, therefore, the answer is always a no. 

What you can do: 

Ask for permission (It’s really simple: 안녕하세요! 출처를 밝혀주면, 움짤 만들기 가능해요? which basically translates to Hello! If I give you credit, is it possible to make gifs?) 

When you receive permission: 

Credit properly

Linking in your caption directly to the video or directly to the fansite (official fansite or Twitter) is giving proper credit. Follow their rules. If they don’t allow logo cropping, don’t crop the logo. Simple as that. 

Fansites work hard to take quality pictures and videos to share with us. As they are uploading live previews, they are also our connection to the boys for every event, especially to international fans. It’s concerning and unfair to them if they never had a chance to address the rules, and just because you see that other people are making gifs from a fansite, does not mean that it’s automatically editable. When you gif from a fansite that you’re not sure is editable, and give credit in your caption, it does not mean that it’s acceptable or editable in any way. The best way to be sure is to confirm yourself. Please give them utmost respect, ask them directly because 99% of the time they will reply, and follow their rules.

anonymous asked:

hey bud, just wanted some advice on how to post art/be consistent with posting? thanks and i love your art :))

  • Be determined to be active: This means, take your blog seriously. Tell yourself that you must keep up with your own blog no matter the shit that gets on the way. Don’t want to draw or answers asks, at least answer one.

  • Be smart, tag your art: By tags is one of the main reasons people get to find your blog, mostly in places like Tumblr and Instagram. Be smart about it and tag your art accordingly but DO NOT over do it. Don’t be those guys that put 32 tags under their art. 

  • Post/draw at least once a day: I cannot stress enough how imPORTANT is to be consistent on your blog, it can be a master piece or a shitty doodle but ALWAYS draw at least once a day. Not everyone has great art days all the time, believe me.

  • Do not spam, do not lack posts: There is always a nice amount of posts you can do per day that will not overwhelm your follower’s dashboard. No one wants someone that spams your dash nor someone that shows up once every blue moon. It can also harm the way your followers keep up with your blog, i used to post so often people started getting lost on whats going on!

  • Every ask can wait: Something i took time on learning is that every ask can wait, you don’t need to stress yourself to the point of trying to answer everything because that apart from bounding you to the blog too strictly the quality of what you do will go down terribly due to stress. 
    Blogging is a hobby there is no need to stress your brain out on asks. I have 60 asks sitting on my inbox and i’ll get to them eventually, with time. 

  • Know how to prioritize asks: Every artist has a way to prioritize their asks. I put users first and interesting questions first. Anons can ALWAYS wait and heck, sometimes some asks are three word messages that make no sense, always feel free to delete those. No one is gonna die because you did not answer a “Hi” or a “Wabba labba dub dub” type of message.

  • Draw for yourself, not others: Though it is nice to have your followers in mind, you are your own person and this hobby of yours if for yourelf to enjoy not others. 
    So if you wanna draw your OC and not the fanart people expect you to draw, go ahead! 
    I love to keep my interest in drawing by drawing various things and not just one thing all the time. 

  • Engage your followers on what you do: Followers always help inspire the artist behind the screen and blogging has always been a two way interaction. Always be open to communicating and exchanging ideas with your followers. This blog, for example, it is not just mine, but of everyone that has helped build it. 
    The results of this blog it is not all me, just the drawing part, maybe, but most of the fun was made due to collaborations i have recieved. 
    These always help me stay determined on what i do, it inspires me to try my best.

    Never take your followers for granted, they are the sweethearts that keep up with you after all. 

  • Remember you do this for fun, don’t turn it into a job: Many people have turned their hobbies into a stressing job just because they forget to have fun in what they do, never lose your path on this. It can make disasters. 

  • DO NOT blog for fame, if you do, then stop blogging: In other words don’t be an attention seeker with your art/posts, this is not a race to see who becomes more famous, this is a hobby for interaction and to share what you love doing.
    It is a place for enjoyment not for grabbing a big red sign that says “PAY ATTENTION TO ME I DO SOMETHING” 

    Attention seeking type of blogs are very dishonest and fall off in a short amount of time, not to mention it is very unhealthy for the user/artist themselves.

    So in other words, stop paying attention at the followers number and pay attention on what you are posting and drawing.

  • Do what you love, love what you do.
    It is as simple as that.

Ay it’s tmi Tuesday, and instead of destroying all of your dashboards what I’m gunna do is wait till this evening and answer a bunch in one big post.

So ask away

I’ll also ask you guys a question that you can answer with a reply.

What sort of hobbies do you peeps have?

take care

BIGBANG - MAFIA AU - PART 6

Summary: The most notorious mafia gang in the city, and you’re at the heart of it…quite literally!

Based off of this request - “All of BB - MADE trailer. All hitmen. U r like a sister to them. All live together in a safe house (love ur cooking/adorable family). U get kidnapped & fucked up badly (ANGST!), they r PISSED. People get fucked up, killed while they save you. Fun ;)”

Part 1 Part 2 Part 3 Part 4 Part 5

Part 6

The car is silent apart from your laboured breathing from the adrenaline running through you and the hum of the engine as you speed through the city. Your mind had been clouded with images of how worried Jiyong would be when he realised you’d left, and you have to wipe a few tears away when you think about how you’d betrayed him, wishing that he’d just been able to let you speak to your father instead of making you feel like a hostage again.

‘Maybe we should turn back.’ you murmur, glancing over at Seungri and tensing up when you see his dark expression, eyes fixed on the road and hands gripping the steering wheel so hard that you think if you nudged him it might snap in two.

'Having second thoughts?’ Seungri mutters, not looking at you as he continues driving, his profile in the darkness of the car feeling menacing and you end up pulling your knees to your chest, the feeling that you had to get back to Jiyong growing stronger and stronger.

'Y/N, he’s been keeping you hostage for the past 3 years. If you want to see your father, you can see him.’ he says, his expression still not changing, but the vague hint of emotion in his voice makes you feel more at ease than you had been.

'Seungri, I may have been a 'hostage’ in the first place…but i’m not-’

You’re cut off before you can finish your sentence by the console on the dashboard of the car lighting up, displaying the gangs emergency distress signal, and you feel your stomach flip as you make the link that Jiyong had found out you were missing.

'What are you going to do?’ you ask Seungri quietly, watching him as his eyes flicker to the message, before he reaches over to turn off the screen, continuing to drive and speeding up slightly.

'We’ll only be gone for an hour tops, then we can go back.’ he murmurs, drifting across lanes as he quickly exits the near deserted highway.

'Are you sure?’ you ask, being skeptical about his version of an 'hour’, but relaxing a little when he chuckles lightheartedly.

'Of course, I’m-’

He’s the one that’s cut off this time by a ringing echoing in the car, and you watch him reach into his pocket to pull out his phone, glancing at it before looking up at you.

'Stay quiet okay?’ he tells you, waiting until you nodded before answering, assuming a happy go lucky tone of voice.

'Hey, I’m just-’

'Seungri, have you seen Y/N?’

Snapping and driving - Shawn Mendes

A/N: thank you so much for the request my love! I hope this is okay? I really loved the request I just had a bit of trouble writing it down. xx

You and Shawn were currently on a road trip, so that you could spend some time alone. You loved it when Shawn took you out on these kind of trips because you loved being outside and being in the nature, exploring things.

With a long car journey quickly comes boredom, and sooner or later Shawn started to take out his phone to record some Snapchats. You told him multiple times to stop because he had to concentrate on driving but he wasn’t listening. He was always brushing it off, not really seeing the danger to it. You knew that Shawn was a save driver and nothing has happened before but you also knew just how quickly accidents can happen when a person is distracted.

“Stop recording m- SHAWN! WATCH OUT!!”, you cut yourself off as you noticed the car in front of you hitting the breaks rather hard, coming to a halt. Giving Shawn only a few seconds to react.

The phone dropped to the floor as he tried to grip the steering wheel with both of his hands, pushing the break pedal as far as he could. But it was not much use. His Jeep hit the car in front of you with nearly full speed, sending the two of you flying forwards from the impact.

Shawn still had his hands on the wheel, which kind of helped holding him back but you only had your seat belt to hold you back. Your face came into full contact with the airbag, that exploded just before you hit the dashboard.

“Shit, shit, shit”, Shawn cursed under his breath as he turned to look if you were okay.

Your face was all bloody and you had a few burns from the explosives that opened the airbag. 

“(Y/N)?”, Shawn asked carefully. “(Y/N), can you hear me?”.

Shawn was scared, he was in shock and didn’t know what to do. He reached for your hand, which was lying lifelessly next to you on the seat.

“Oh god, I’m so sorry”, he started to look around himself and noticed that a few people stopped to help and a rather tall man came towards you and Shawn. “You gotta help her! I’m fine, just a little bruised up, please!”.

The man nodded, and went to your side, to see how you were. “The ambulance is on it’s way”, he said as he tried to get the passenger door open. “You two are going to be okay”. 


“@shawnsmuffin: SHAWN HAS BEEN IN A CAR ACCIDENT??? IM CRYING IS HE OKAY???”

“@mendesmyman: IS SHAWN OKAY??? WHAT HAPPENED??”

Shawn was anxiously bouncing his leg up and down as he waited for the doctors. He’s been sitting in this room ever since you two arrived in the hospital and he didn’t know how you were. No one would tell him anything and even after his mom went to ask a nurse she just shrugged her shoulders and went into another patient’s room.

“She will be okay”, his mom told him over and over again but he didn’t want to hear it from her. He wanted the confirmation from a doctor.

“Mendes?”, a deep voice asked as the door opened. Shawn immediately jumped up, looking hopeful. “Miss (Y/N) (Y/L/N) is well and resting now, she requested to see you”.

Without hesitation Shawn went to see you in your room. He didn’t even wait to knock, when he opened the door. “Oh god..”, he said more to himself than anyone else as he say you on the hospital bed. “I’m so so sorry”, he started to tear up and took your hand in his. 

“Don’t cry! I’m alive, aren’t I?”, you said and loosely let your thumb run over his fingers. “My nose is broken and I have a burn wound right here-”, you pointed to your forehead. “-but it’s nothing that won’t heal over time”.

Shawn looked at you in shock. Mainly because he still couldn’t believe what happened but also because you were still so positive and energetic. “But I did that… it’s my fault your nose is broken…”.

“It’s not, stop saying that! I’m not mad and you should stop beating yourself up about it… it could have been worse”, you told him sternly and looked him in the eyes. “just please, don’t ever snap and driver again, deal?”.

A look of relive washed over Shawn as he planted a soft kiss on your knuckles. “Deal”. 

masterlist

Well then.

Tried to make a gif from scratch for this but failed so now you just get this. I don’t really have a plan for this at all. These milestones just happen so quickly. I never have time to prepare for them. 

I’d do one of those follow things with a list of all the blogs that I love and appreciate but I’d hate to be a bother. If I follow you, chances are that I love you and your content very much. I’m very particular about the people I follow. 

I still appreciate every follower though. It’s just that I don’t want a dashboard that is too cluttered so I stick to a minimum in amount of accounts that I follow. I’d still be friends with someone who I’m not following. Hell, if anyone following me asked for my Discord, I’d let them know what it is and even follow them back. 

I guess I’ve figured out what I can do for 800. Q&A. Anything you want to know, feel free to send an ask. You don’t have to, of course. But if you have any questions, I’m here to answer. It doesn’t even have to be about something related to my account. It can be completely random and confuse the shit out of me and I’d still be happy, ahaha.

Part One Here - Part Two Here - Part Four Here

Summary; Let’s face it, you played them. You tried both, but now you have to choose. Except the boys will give you one ultimatum. And only one choice will make the right people happy…

Warning; so much smut lmao, okay, three people, yep, lots of parts cool, bye

Okay, I hope this is okay? I have not used one request, however I am going to be writing a FOURTH part!!!

Yep, it’s happening. That one is not going to be full on smut, just suggested, and idk it’s gonna be fun :)

I guess it’s shorter than I wanted it to be, but idk it got uncomfortable, sorry guys

-

This was confusing. You didn’t mean to get so caught up in this. It would have been easier to just enter a polyamory relationship, but maybe Scott and Stiles wouldn’t be up for that…

What would people think, anyways? Not that that mattered too much, but still…

The boys had both heard about the other sides of the story, and you knew that. They’re best friends after all. It was just up to their own minds now, if they wanted to be part of it or not. Would they though? Probably not. Who’d want to share their partner with one of their best friends?

Wait, that’s not-

“Hey Y/n,” Scott slipped an arm around your shoulders and steered you to the exit of the school towards the end of the day.

“Hi,” you spoke, more like a question, “Where are we going?” you asked, suspicious.

“Stiles’s jeep,” he told you before he opened the door for you and pulled the front seat, nodding for you to get in the back, which you did with a sigh. Settling in, you watched as Scott and Stiles shared a quick look before Stiles pulled out of the parking lot.

“Can somebody tell me what’s going on?” you leaned forward and put your head between the two of them.

“No?” Stiles shrugged, turning out onto the road and driving towards the reserve.

“So this is essentially a kidnap?” you asked.

“Basically yes,” Scott agreed as Stiles turned just after the ‘Beacon Hills Reserve’ sign and you started to bump along on the dirt road. You leaned back before he stopped in a shaded area at a specific spot, stopping the car and pulling the keys out from the ignition, putting the set onto the dashboard, turning in his seat, away from the view of the lookout.

“So who do you prefer?” Stiles asked you outright, making you freeze.

“I’m sorry?”

“We know what happened. You had a moment with both of us,” Scott added.

“I gathered you knew, but- What?” which was how Scott had nodded for you to move up and he climbed into the back.

“Do you think you can decide?” he asked, his voice having dropped a couple of octaves.

A Guide to Basic RP Blogging: Layouts, Page Information, and Content

Let’s face it: when you have a roleplay blog on Tumblr, having a generic layout hardly ever does the job. You need to have pages, tags, navigation, and make sure that other bloggers can easily get all around your blog. It’s also important to have a layout that’s stream-lined, easy to navigate, and still looks aesthetically pleasing.

I’m going to make some posts in the near future about basic HTML for pages, but for now, I just want to touch on the basics of what every blog (even non-roleplay blogs) should have.

First, you need your basic pre-loaded, universal links. As soon as you copy and paste a layout (or select a pre-made one from Tumblr) and click ‘preview,’ this should be your immediate checklist:

  • is there a home button?
  • is there a dash button?
  • is there an ask button?
  • submit? do I want a submit?
  • archive? do I want an archive?
  • are there other links? do i want other links?
  • is there a way to get to page 2 and beyond?

IF YOUR THEME IS MISSING ANY OF THESE FEATURES, FIND ANOTHER ONE. 

I cannot stress this enough.

Nothing is going to make you look like you have no idea what you’re doing like when a follower has to manually type in ’/page/2,’ ’/ask,’ or 'tumblr.com/dashboard’ because your layout isn’t logically created.

So now that you have your basic links and no one’s going to be internally judging you for having a dysfunctional layout, let’s talk about some features that pertain more to roleplaying.

There are a few pages every roleplay blog needs. Here’s the checklist:

  • bio(s)
  • headcanon(s)
  • rules and/or a mundane page

You can have more pages if you need to (for my blog, each character has a bio page, and each bio page has links to their headcanon, things they like, their face, and all of their open starters), but this is just at the most basic.

Make sure that you can get to all of these pages either from your main page or from your navigation page. This can be as simple as clicking 'show link on page’ when you create your page, or as advanced as working it into a navigation layout. In either case, there’s no excuse for not having these 3 pages somewhere easily accessible.

So, let’s break it down.

Character Biography.

This section is really a place for you to do what you want. I’d recommend having one or two information-packed paragraphs, as far as length or organization, but it’s up to you. Despite how you choose to organize your biography, though, you should always cover some basic questions.

Failing to mention any of the following often puts other roleplayers into an uncomfortable situation where they aren’t sure whether to ask you or wing it while interacting with your character, so make sure you mention:

  • sexual orientation
  • age
  • gender
  • name
  • any immediate physical features
  • any warnings associated with your character
  • faceclaim (either the name or a picture)

I know some of you may be reading this like 'warnings? physical features? what?’ and I want to take 5 seconds to cover this. If you have a character who has something off about them, it is in your best interest to make sure the other roleplayer is aware of this.

For example, I have a character who refuses to shower. He smells worse than Satan’s unwashed butthole. I don’t just leave that in page 3 of the headcanon and hope other roleplayers decide to go exploring into the dusty bowels of my blog. I put it right there in the open so that within maybe 5 replies, they know my character hasn’t showered since New Year’s and can act accordingly.

And here’s another thing: if your character comes with trigger warnings, put it on the bio page. It’s extremely rude and unpleasant to have a ship thinking that the other muse is normal and mentally stable, and then hear, SURPRISE, they’re suicidal torture victims. And, if you’re worried about people not using your character because of their past, news flash: “suicidal torture victim” is how I’d describe my most popular character in 3 words. Don’t hide someone’s past.

On a final note, try to make sure all of your characters are on the bio page. Keep them updated. Bios are living and breathing works and need to be revised as your character develops. Neglecting to update bios is misleading and extremely frustrating both for lurkers, potential partners, and even long-term partners.

Headcanon

I firmly believe every character needs a headcanon section.Before we get into this, though, I think we should define what headcanon is. I’ve heard a couple of different definitions: it’s things that apply to your character, essentials on your character, etc, etc, etc. Here’s my definition:

headcanon: necessary information on a character, be it background, kinks, tattoos/piercings/body mods, triggers, or other relevant information.

A headcanon, next to a bio, is the most important thing to have for your character. There are multiple ways to set one up (I use a tag page), which I won’t go into here, but it’s important that you have one.

To properly write with another character, roleplayers need to have at least a basic idea of what that character is like. Don’t be overwhelming, but don’t leave out huge things, either. It’s better to make sure you have your character’s background posted in headcanon than to surprise another roleplayer with some ridiculous past. And remember: if it’s in the headcanon, you can’t be blamed if your character chooses to conceal something about themselves.

Here’s what I recommend having in the headcanon section:

  • significant life events
  • anything dealing with character development
  • kinks and relationship advice
  • any physical attributes separate from the FC
  • hobbies
  • any strong opinions (esp if they might cause problems, eg racism, homophobia)

This section can really include whatever you want, though. It’s all up to you.

Rules / Mundane Page

This. Is. Important.

I see a lot of roleplayers blow this off and for other bloggers who haven’t interacted with you, it can create a really awkward situation. Even if you don’t want to have a strong Mundane presence on Tumblr, which is fine, you need to have a page.

The rules section is pretty self-explanatory, and I don’t want to make a list for anyone; it’s all personal preference. My recommendation is that you sit for 5 or 10 minutes, think about what your own rules will be, and post them. Here are my guidelines, though.

  1. Make sure you have an “or else” statement. For example, I hate being spammed about replying to threads. Instead of writing 'don’t spam me,’ I put 'don’t send me more than two messages about a thread per day. If you send me more than this, I will not reply again.’ Harsh? Sure. But there’s no question about pushing my limits.
  2. Be specific in your rules. Don’t just write the same rules everyone else has: if there’s something you personally don’t like, add it in. I personally hate having verses with more than one other person, so I include that as one of my rules.
  3. If there’s anything you aren’t willing to do or if you have any triggers, put it here. If you clearly state that you won’t write X, Y, and Z on your rules page, you’re actively taking away the other roleplayer’s argument. No one’s going to bitchfit if your blog clearly says you’re triggered by something, and if they do, they’re a douche because a) it’s on your blog and it’s their fault for not reading it, b) it’s a universal rule and for them to ask otherwise kinda makes them look like a prima donna, and c) it’s a hell of a lot easier to say 'that’s my rule’ and wash your hands of something than to explain 10 different times why you don’t want to do certain plots.

The mundane page is a little different, and this is tricky. Every mundane’s comfort level is different when it comes to personal information, and I understand that. Here’s what I think every roleplayer ought to have on their page, though:

  • what they want to be called
  • what gender pronouns they prefer
  • how comfortable they are about ooc
  • their timezone
  • their general age (eg 18+, -18)
  • reiterated triggers if applicable

Keep in mind that most of the people who haven’t talked to you are going to try to find something out before shooting you a message. If there’s nothing there for them to go on, they’re going to be less likely to talk to you. If you have a friendly about me where you invite the reader to send you a message, give them information to use as conversation starters, and give them some very basic background, it’ll go a long way.

You should also have your warnings here. If you really don’t want to give out information, say so. If you have triggers, put them here so people know in advance. The more you say about them, the more likely it is people will see 'oh, ok, don’t mention [trigger].’

So that’s all for me. That seems like a lot, but it really isn’t. This is just basic criteria every blog should have.

How do you block a hashtag. I'm sick of seeing naked sims on my dash.

Well I’ve heard about Tumblr Savior (i think that’s what it’s called) and it has an option where you can block certain hashtags from appearing on your dashboard. I don’t personally have it so if any of my followers could help this nonny out I’d appreciate it :)

Cards Against Humanity

Oneshot.

Based on a request by @flandusgirl: I would love you forever if you write a fic if Dean finding the reader playing SPN cards against humanity and freaking out, but then he secretly plays behind the readers back

Warnings: some language

Author’s Note: This is my second request. I had a lot of fun writing this. It was very silly and fun! I hope you enjoy it my friends. Please like, reblog, and shoot me a friend request. I always follow back. Also, requests are open, so feel free to send me your ideas! xo kait

It was a rainy boring Sunday afternoon in the bunker. You had been staying here for over five months now, and you had become almost a little sister to the Winchester duo. Dean was taking a nap in his room, and Sam was off in the library doing some research. You were all alone, the raindrops echoing off the roof of the bunker, clouding your thoughts. You rest your cheek on your fist in boredom. Nothing a little Internet browsing couldn’t fix!

You take your laptop out from its hiding place under the sofa, and boot it up. Dean liked to get his hands on it whenever he could. You hid it here because you knew he’d never think to look under the couch. Busty Asian Beauties really did a number on your laptop last time.

As it’s humming to life, you realize exactly what you’re going to do to pass the time. Cards Against Humanity. It’s one of your favorite games! You log onto Tumblr and check out your Dashboard. You can only do this when Dean isn’t around. He’s constantly asking you questions about social media, as if it were a foreign language he couldn’t quite comprehend.

As you’re scrolling, you notice a link for a Cards Against Humanity Game. The category? Supernatural. You knew that Carver Edlund had written a book series about the boys, but they had never let you get anywhere close to reading it. Sam had Charlie block all of the books from your server. You had to click it. This was your chance at payback, for all the torture and teasing you go through on a daily basis at the hands of the Winchester brothers.

You click on the link for the game, and already seven other people are playing. The chat is filled with people gushing their love for Dean and Sam. You giggle to yourself, knowing that these two gorgeous mean are literally feet away from you.

Then you notice your cards, and you can’t help but laugh out loud.

And that’s just an example! You also notice something about Casa Erotica, Destiel, and Adam being stuck in the cage. Adam? Who the fuck is Adam? If Dean or Sam saw you playing this, they’d have your head on a spike. Your laughing has reached hyena levels now.

“What are you doing, Y/N?” A husky voice makes you jump, and you snap your computer shut. Dean stands in front of you in a button up plaid shirt and jeans, his hair sticking up in spots from sleep. Your heart is pounding in your chest.
“Nothing…” you say, not sounding very convincing. Dean looks at you with his side-eye stare. He knows something is up.

“I highly doubt that. Give me that,” His strength is no match against yours and, even though you struggle to keep the laptop in your grasp, he rips it out of your hands with ease. He opens up your laptop and his eyes grow wide. Dean stares at the computer screen for a minute, his eyes growing wider as his brain processes what he’s seeing. He looks over to you, with his mean face. The face he makes when you know you’re in trouble. When he speaks to you, his voice is low, almost too calm.

“Y/N, what in the hell is this crap?” He scrolls over your cards, making a different disgusted face over every one.  You fiddle with your fingers, still internally laughing, but scared for your life.

“A game, obviously, Dean.” You roll your eyes at him.

Dean makes a low growl in his throat and snaps the laptop shut.

“Yeah, a game about me and SAM, Y/N. A sick, twisted, game. Go get Sam, and right now, before I lose my freakin’ patience!” He runs a hand through his hair, points towards the library, and you get up off the sofa.

“Fine,” you say, huffing towards the library, “But apparently you and Cas are a ‘thing’ in the fandom world. Something called… Destiel?” Dean furrows his brow and emphasizes his finger towards the library. You raise your hands in the air in defeat, and go to find Sam in the library.

Meanwhile, Dean is sitting on the sofa still, your laptop in his lap. He lets the curiosity get the best of him, and opens up your laptop to the game.

“Let’s see what all the fuss is about,” He says, scrolling through your white cards. His eyes land on a set another player has just played.

“Oh isn’t that just fan-friggen-tastic?” Dean says, throwing his hands in the air in frustration, and putting his head in his hands.

You walk back into the living room and see Dean with your laptop open.

“Dean?” You say, knocking on the wall to get his attention.  Dean jumps about a foot in the air, and snaps the laptop shut. You hold your sides from laughing so hard.

“Nothing is funny here, Y/N. Be on your way.” He walks past you with the laptop to the library, so Sam can wipe this from his memory, and yours forever.

“SAM!” He calls, walking swiftly towards the library. “GET THIS FILTH OUT OF MY SIGHT! MY EYEBALLS ARE BURNING IN MY SKULL!”

You wipe your eyes of tears from laughing so hard, and follow him to the library.

“Squirrel, wait up!” You yell after him.

“SHUT YOUR CAKEHOLE, Y/N!” Dean yells in the distance, somewhere in the bunker.

Payback will be sweet for quite some time.

Update for you all! Where have I been this time? Well, thanks to a mix of depression and using my writing energy on personal stuff, AS WELL as a bunch of keys on my keyboard randomly borking on me, I wasn’t able to write anything for the past week. I’m sorry I keep doing this to you all and making these update posts clogging your dashboard. I want to jump back in now that I can wrote again thanks to this keyboard being fixed, but I also have a small request for all of you. Do you think any of you could ask or comment some questions on a smaller scale, maybe? What I mean is, specific questions that don’t require m to write a whole blurb about a Classpect, and more quesitons about how a certain one would go trough this or that, or power useage or something. Just to get me back into the groove from being gone so long and to get more posts out for you all at a quicker rate since those would take much less time from me to think of and post. Hell, make it generic SBURB questions, not even needing to be Classpect related! I’d take them! Thank you for taking the time to read this, and I look forward to posting for all you lovely people again.

Sweetheart, I was like - not looking on my dashboard for 30 minutes; writing some other shit and I come back and find this and I just ??? do not know what I am supposed to say?? Except, thank you so so much for this ask. I know that I am literally always saying thank you and how much I appreciate it. 

But you guys don’t know how much I really appreciate it. So again, thank you so much for your feedback. It warms my heart to know that you think so highly of me and I am simply blown away of how strong your reaction is.

I also want to add that I am sure and 100 % sure that you write just as well and just as perfect. Maybe even better! 

Flaws of Attraction

I really liked this post by @ask-engiespy and wrote in the tags of a reblog how I wanted to write something about it.  Then I got this ask soon after -

So I finally did it and I made my EngieSpy dreams come true with this fic

~

It had started out as a strange relationship, if one even dared to think of it as relationship at first.  It was more a mutual hate, a mutual need to conquer the other, a lust to be better and be the last man standing in every encounter.  

Hardly a relationship at all, the Engineer mused.  Every time that BLU Spy had showed up to sap the RED’s equipment, it had been more of a death match than the beginnings of a relationship 

So how he and the snaky bastard found themselves driving home from yet another night out together in town, the Texan wasn’t sure.

“Spook,“ He said, getting the other’s attention, “Why are we doin’ this?”

”Doing what, may I ask?” Spy inquired, “Are you referring to being mercenaries, having left the bases, now returning to the bases, using your truck instead of my car, or just us?”

“Us,” Engineer replied, “We’re on opposite sides of a war, as much of a war it can be over rock, the first hundred times we met, we wanted to kill each other.  What changed?”

I am 200% positive that Twitter post actually constitutes a peek into the future where your brief foray into the wrestling world inspired your new, revolutionary psychotherapeutic methodology

2 years from now, you’ll see me in the news. My revolutionary SPG therapy, based on martial arts and Steve Irwin, will bring me to the spotlight. The news is about a maniac that has finally been seized after several highly illegal “alternative” therapies, using increasingly powerful and dangerous spiders. 

“That’s the beauty of my SPG (Spiders Drimo Gambit) therapy model, see! If you can survive three tupperware containers full of brown recluses, you can survive your intense athazagoraphobia! If you have abandonment issues, I can assure you the fast acting venom of these bad boys is, pound by pound, more painful! I know what I am doing!” I, Doctor Drimo, ph.D, will declare as the officer that restrains me keeps smashing my face against the patrol car’s dashboard. No one asked me, but I wanted to explain anyways.

But the best part, and remembers this, is when I get put inside the patrol car. In that 0.001 seconds of vulnerability, like a second bottle of wine thrown against the supermarket’s wall, that’s when I bite into the secret pill I hid in my molar. They seize me again and put me against the floor. Was it cyanide? No, they check my pulse, and I am still alive. What was it? The answer soon becomes apparent as countless spiders begin oozing out of my mouth, a brown and reclusive tidal wave that soon engulfs the cops, the news crew, and myself.

Spiders.

The pill had spiders.

So a lot of you guys have been asking what is this app or thingy called on my computer desktop. It’s actually a Google Chrome Extension called Momentum. 

Momentum replaces the new tab page to a personal dashboard where you can place what’s your main focus for today and a to do list. They replace the photo on the background everyday which is so beautiful. They also have a quote at the bottom part which can inspire you more. I love this extension so much! The different photos and quotes helps me get inspired. The focus and to do list also helps me with what I need to get done.

“Wait, wait! What if pigeons do have feelings and we’re literally just ignoring them?” You slurred, giggling as you asked Harry what seemed to be the most ridiculous question ever. 

“I don’t know, love. Maybe we can ask some bird expert about that.” He teased, nearly swerving off the road when you slapped your hand on his thigh. “Jesus Christ.” 

“You know what I wanna do? What I wanna do when we get home?” 

“What d’ya wanna do?” 

“Wanna make a big ice cream sundae n’ eat it with you.” You hummed, Harry beaming as he took your hand and placed a sweet kiss onto it. 

“Alright, we can do that. And get your legs off the dashboard!” 

+

“Y/N. I’m serious.” Harry said sternly as you giggled and rested on your stomach in the backseat. “Get out of the car! We need to make your sundae, remember? And you need to take a shower.” 

Feel you on my neck while I’m calling a taxi, climbing over me while I climb in the backseat..” You sang, wiggling your eyebrows seductively as you turned to face Harry. 

“C’mon, you.” Harry laughed, reaching in and grabbing you, tossing you over his shoulder in one quick motion. “We’ve got a sundae to make.” 

I can be your temporary fix…”
