be sure to check this artist and give them a rating

soul-rin-natsu  asked:

Can you recommend any klance fics?.

I can definitely recommend lots of klance fics. As in, lots lots. I am not completely sure what you are looking for/what you have already read though, so I’m just gonna list some of my favorite authors with some of my favorite fics. 

Quick additional info: there are no explicit fics on here, though some are rated mature. All of the stories have klance as their only ship but since I intended this to be author recs rather than fic recs, I will mention what kinds of other ships appear in other fics. 

Now then, here you go, in no particular order:

manamune

- Crossroads (106k): not quite canon verse, not quite AU - check the summary

- Plunged (6k): canon verse, Lance teaches Keith how to swim

Roommates (6k): modern AU, Artist!Keith, Photographer!Lance, exactly what the title says

This author’s writing is amazingly smooth and I particularly enjoy their Keith. Crossroads was my favorite fic for a long, long time until I found some others that were just as good :D [this author also wrote some nsfw and sheith]

magisterpavus 

- He Who Fights Monsters (65k): AU, there are dragons

This author has a style of writing that makes you forget that time exists. Like, you read their stories, look up 2 hours later and go “what the hell I only just started reading 5 minutes ago”. Their fics are pretty action-heavy but the romance part never falls short. [they wrote a lot of nsfw, their newest fic is shklance]

mackerelmademedoit

- Entangled (102k): canon verse, Keith and Lance get mind-melded

- Right-hand Man (4k): canon verse, Keith approaches Lance after the end of season 2 to talk about their roles from now on

Amazing characterizations here. I particularly enjoyed the OS because it seemed like something that genuinely could happen like this in canon… sadly I don’t think it will, but one can dream, right :’D Also amazing art! [they wrote some nsfw]

redburn

- it had to be you (9k): modern AU, Keith and Lance are professors, lots of flirting

- Echoes In Your Mind (7k): canon verse, Keith is turning Galra

- let the whole world know (4k): modern AU, soulmates AU

I honestly don’t know why I like this author so much? Probably because they can squeeze an entire story into less than 10k words, complete with character development and appearances from friends etc. I liked many more of their OS but there are just so many, you should check it out for yourself. [they wrote some nsfw and shallura]

varelsen

- Not That Bad (68k): modern AU, socially anxious!Keith, lots and lots of fluff

- just like that (10k): canon verse, Lance struggles with his crush on Keith

this author just? makes reading feel so good? so relaxing?? Their style is focused on conveying emotions and flows really nicely, I strongly recommend to give it a try. [their newest story is nsfw and includes lancelot]

battleshidge (Amiria_Raven)

- Drive Me Crazy (8k): modern AU, lots of flirting and stupid pick-up lines

- Next Level (33k; WIP): modern AU, online gaming, they know each other but they don’t know that they know each other

The style of writing is really, really good and I love how everyone’s friendships get portrayed. The author is also pretty good at writing conflicted emotions. [they wrote some shallura and shidge]

aknightley

- it’s all in my head (8k): canon verse, mind meld

This author is super good with emotions. You always end up feeling what the characters are feeling and I’d definitely recommend going through their other fics as well - once again, there are just so many that I won’t list them all. [they wrote some nsfw and shallura]

lemoninagin

- You Can Fog Up My Windows Anytime (3k): modern AU, all the awkward flirting

Another author that has a fantastic style of writing and portrays the characters really well. Also another author that wrote so many good things that I can’t possibly put them all on here. [they wrote some nsfw, sheith, shklance, shallura- lots of stuff, check the tags]

MilkTeaMiku

- Moonset Deep (50k, WIP): mermaid AU, lance is the mermaid

- The Quiet (40k, WIP): ghost AU, lance is the ghost

- 7 Days Series (pt 1 - 30k, pt 2 - 30k, pt 3 - 4k): canon verse, lance/keith get turned into babies

Amazing writing, plot-orientated. Don’t let that fool you though, the emotions never fall short. [they wrote some shallura, shance and other ships - also their fics aren’t rated. the ones listed are entirely sfw]

Zizzani

- Drive It Like You Mean It (94k): modern AU, street racing AU, it gets pretty intense later

This writer has a really fluent and nice style of writing and they somehow manage to easily let lots of characters interact. Everyone feels extremely in character and nothing feels forced. Also I know nothing about cars and yet their fics belong to my favorites, so give it a try. [they wrote some shallura]

shipstiel

- Of Don Juan And Elvis (3k): modern AU, soulmate AU

- Barbie Girl (2k): modern AU, soulmate AU, continuation

I’m not sure whether it’s just me but no matter what fic of them I read, they always feel– soft. Easy. Something good for in-between. One of their fics (not the ones listed here) has some pretty heavy topics in it and yet I still feel like that. [they wrote some shallura]

Gigapoodle

- A Moment in the Snow (3k): canon verse, Galra!Keith, snowball fights, fluff

- Carpe Diems and Chrysanthemums (14k): modern AU, hanahaki disease, trans Lance, angst with a happy ending

- A Quarter Past Midnight (14k): canon verse, trans Keith, angst with a happy ending

This author is amazing at writing angst. It just always hits you right in the feels. Like damn. I adore their writing so much but ho boy I was too scared to click the one Chara Death fic they wrote. I couldn’t do that to myself, the two longer OS that I listed here already gave me enough feelings. [they wrote some shallura]

Trashness 

- Nightmares (15k): canon verse, sleeping together, as in snuggling, fluff

- Costumed Identities (42k): modern AU, cosplay AU, they know each other but they don’t know they know each other

This author writes Keith’s and Lance’s interactions really nicely. They also never fail to make me smile/laugh with their fics, they are all really cute!! Lots of light heartened stuff here.

SKayLanphear

- Running Flat (11k): canon verse, thought sharing, lance is trying to figure out who has the crush on him

- A Commutal Contract (24k, WIP): canon verse, bed sharing

I really really really enjoy this author’s Lance!! He feels incredibly in character and I swear I can see him act in canon just like he does in the fics. Their style of writing is fluent, nice and adapts really well to the situation.


[I also really enjoy witty_name’s and freshia’s fics, both of whom usually put background shallura into their fics though so I couldn’t list them here]


Aaaand that’s it for now! :D If you have a specific length/specific topics/specific ratings in mind for what you want to read, feel free to send another message!! You can also visit the fic rec tag on my blog, maybe you’ll find something else there.

/EDIT: now there is a part two with some other of my favorite fics

tips for getting exposure in fandom

Originally posted by papapu-u

I dont’ think i’m popular enough to be giving these sorts of tips but i’ve gotten a few asks so in the interests of not spamming i thought i’d share some observations i’ve made in fandom! 

Self Marketing Strategies

  • use the same username across all your social media platforms. It makes it much easier to find AND credit you, even where people don’t hyperlink.
  • I think the following characteristics are good for choosing a name because they allow you to move between fandoms, genres, ratings etc (and potentially link to your real name later more easily). 
      • non-fandom specific username
      • easy to spell and relatively short
      • no swearing / r18 puns if you’re worried about rl
      • trademarking principles apply - e.g. made up words are often more distinctive. 
  • For fic writers, update / link to your new chapters on all your non Ao3 platforms. That’s the only way we can be prolific (cf. artists). 
  • for artists, include your signature on your art EVERYWHERE - make it hard to crop out by reposters, make it LEGIBLE. it should correspond to your username. 
  • use consistent tags when doing the above. Tag your username. 
  • make rec lists, reblog others, boost others, comment  - be visible. Fandom has become really fragmented due to the architecture of our social platforms so this is very important. 

for Fic Writers

Caveat: this is for people who want to get more popular fics and not necessarily what i would suggest for your long term fandom enjoyment health. the adage of ‘writing for yourself’ is true - write for yourself (and your close friends).. Look i have llike, just one fic that’s popular so i’m not sure how much of this advice is relevant but for what it’s worth:

  • understand your fandom demographic = age + favourite tropes + any fandom wank to potentially avoid if you’re just starting out.
  • if you’re good with PWP, that’s always a hit!!! Same with humour. 
  • avoid writing fics in first person.
  • avoid writing as if you’re outlining all the plot and emotions. you’re not here to be succinct. keep some secrets. :)
  • avoid flat archetypes as they can feel 2D and OOC. And often sexist.
  • identify popular AU settings & adapt them. 
  • check spelling and paragraph formatting. VERY important. 
  • hyperlink to your tumblr, twitter etc accounts in your author notes. 
  • if you’re inspired by art (and there’s lots of inspiring art), write something for it! (but check for permission first). 
  • leave comments and feedback on other fics. 
  • dont’ be like me and take ages to update…but this really depends on your RL and not really under our control. 
  • avoid adding negative caveats in your fic summaries, e.g. I’m bad at summaries but i promise it’s better! or I suck at this. This is not a job where you’re managing your co-worker’s expectations to avoid over-estimation. this never helps.

Jeongguk x Reader

Part 1 | Part 2

Summary: Jeongguk’s under strict instructions not to work out because it’s eating into the wardrobe budget and causing one too many malfunctions. As his stylist, you’re responsible for making sure he fits into his stage outfits, but when his urge to workout is unstoppable, you’re left with only one other choice to save your job.


The situation is dire, but Jeongguk doesn’t seem to be aware of even an inkling of your desperation as you run your hands over his chest frantically.

“Damn it Jeon Jeongguk, did you work out again? I literally just replaced all the dress shirts in your stage outfits with a size up just last week! And Jungyeon unnie will kill me if I tell her your blazer needs to be altered, again. Didn’t manager Sejin tell you that you weren’t allowed to work out anymore??”

He doesn’t seem to be listening to your mini rant as he checks himself out in the mirror behind you, admiring the smokiness of the eyeshadow smudged on his lids, and running a finger along the sharp crease of his jaw before adjusting the mic headset around his ear.

You give his nipple a sharp pinch and he yelps in response. He has the decency to look a little guilty as he shifts his gaze to your face, and fiddles with his bottom lip in hesitation.

Why I ship Aokise (part 1)

there’s plenty of ships in KNB, but is there a specific reason why I ship Aomine and Kise together the most and why it’s my favourite ship? The answer is: I have tons of reasons why I ship these two. 

It’s not just because Kise looks up to Aomine the most and that Aomine is the one that inspired Kise to play basketball and helped him hone his skills the most, but it’s in the subtlety of their friendship, the unspoken words between the two. It’s their trust and deep connection with each other. 

Disclaimer: This is not going to be about a post on how Kise has always idolized Daiki, but how these two, in my opinion, has the best relationship development. There’s no hating on other ships here, and please, if you have nothing good to say about this post then say nothing at all.

Some might argue that Kuroko and Aomine has a deeper level of friendship (no Im not hating on any other ships), but Aomine’s said it himself (you can check it out on wiki) - outside of basketball, the two have nothing much in common. Aomine in Teiko thinks of Kuroko as his best friend, Momoi coming in second because she’s has always been a constant in his life.

But Kise. The idiot he purposely threw the basketball at, the one who despite crushing several times, never stops asking hm for one-on-ones. Kise has also somehow wormed into Aomine’s heart, whether he liked it or not.

Part one - The Kaijo vs Too event

1. He acknowledges Kise as a strong opponent.

I’d like to think that Aomine has kept tabs on Kise in the few months they’ve been separated. Aomine knows that Kise is strong, probably stronger than ever since the GOM’s separation. He knows that his team wouldn’t last without Aomine playing - that’s how much confidence he has in Kise’s skills. 

Aomine has never said it out loud, but he has always thought of Kise of a worthy opponent. Even during their Teiko times, Aomine is always seen baffled by Kise’s growth rate in basketball. He’ll never admit it but if Kise is able to play how most players do that has trained for years and years in merely months, then Kise is one of the few that has a standing chance against him.

2. They both know each other best

This is something that i’d been wanting to talk about. In fact i’m so excited to talk about this I’m not sure where to start. They’ve been training together for months, of course they’d get used to each other’s patterns. It was one of the craziest intense match as the two of them tried to outsmart each other. They know what moves the other might make and all that, but this isn’t just it.

Outside of basketball, they often hang out as well. In a few KNB games, the two often hang out and they both know what each other likes and dislike. In fact, Aomine knows how Kise doesn’t like worms but he got Kise a larvae as a gift on his birthday, knowing it would piss him off (in a small comic strip by the artist of KNB). 

…i think I’ll write this part in another post.

3. Neither of them want the other to go easy on them.

After Kise gives Aomine “the look,” this is what Aomine said to him. He realizes that while Kise is using an underhanded tactic, Aomine doesn’t want him to go soft on him because of his 4 fouls. He wants Kise to win as much as Kise doesn’t want him to lose. This wasn’t stated in the anime or the manga but you can see that Aomine is sick and tired of Kise running after him all this while.

Kise knew Aomine wouldn’t hold back with his 4 fouls. Kise knew that this tactic of his wouldn’t work against Aomine. And the fact that Aomine found out about this little tactic of his made Kise happy - it just really means that they knew each other so much that Daiki was able to realize what the blond planned. 

4. Aomine looks out for Kise’s wellbeing and feelings.

OKAY SO THIS IS LIKE. The main reason why I even ship these two to begin with. People ALWAYS tell me that it’ Kise hanging on Aomine most of the time and I don’t deny this. But have you ever notice the way Aomine treats Kise? Not as if Kise’s fragile, but in the way Kise wants to be treated - as a challenger, as a strong, worthy opponent. While Aomine has always told kise that he’ll never be strong as him, but Aomine knows that all these words will just serve to motivate the blond more.

This part though:

Here, Aomine subtly states that he knows Kise isn’t at maximum power and full potential yet, and that he’s losing to Aomine now, but will be even better in the future, the next time they compete. Can I also take this time to mention how both of them are smiling wide and blissful while Kise is saying that? It’s like Aomine’s saying “yeah I know so its okay.” Aomine agrees with him (though like. very subtly)

Aomine knows that Kise has a bad leg. This can be proven as Aomine didn’t enter the zone against Kise. 

Also, even Imayoshi knows that Aomine has a soft spot for his dumb blond. 

This was translated slightly off from the manga. In the manga Imayoshi says: “If he had any weaknesses, it would be the soft spot he has for his former teammate.” Plural. 

5. Aomine cares.

To those that think Aokise is an abusive ship, stating that Kise’s adoration is borderline creepy and how Aomine stomps all over Kise’s feeling, please look and consider again. These two share an amazing rivalry and friendship.

Aomine knows that whatever he says to kise would only hurt and make the blond feel like he’s making a joke out of him. Aomine actually knows how to hold his tongue when it comes to Ryouta. 

AND

ALSO

THIS PART!!!! Some may overlook this part but it’s so so so very important. Aomine actually stood behind Kise to see whether or not he can get up by himself. His concerned face says it all. He knows that he was the one that pushed Kise to his limit, and Aomine is at a lost for what to do. ‘Do I help him up? What if he rejects my help?’ his face seems to say.

If Kasamatsu hadn’t come and help (not that I’m complaining since this is one of my ships too), I’d guess that Aomine would eventually offer his help. 

And if anything, Kise looked like he was expecting Aomine to be the one who offered him help.

AND MOREOVER!!!  Aomine stood by to make sure Kise has gotten help before moving back to his team. He made sure that Kise was in safe hands before looking away.

Aomine stood by to make sure Kise has gotten help before moving back to his team. He made sure that Kise was in safe hands before taking his leave. I may be getting ahead of myself, but I think this is exactly what it looks like. Aomine is a big softie (and a huge idiot) when it comes to the blond. 


6. Finally, this.

Ummmm? If you didn’t know, this title comes from Aomine’s point of view. Here, ‘おまえ /Omae’, referring to ‘your’, is used by Aomine. Kise uses ‘あんた’ when referring to others. Aomine is talking about ‘Their Basketball.’ No one else’s. I’m not sure why i added this point but this fact just makes me so giddy.

But in my point of view, Aomine both despise and love their basketball - he doesn’t like the way they play so similarly, the way they know each other best, the way Kise is trying to use Aomine’s style against him. But at the same time, he enjoys it. Aomine may make fun of him and belittle him verbally, but he really does enjoy playing with the blond because Kise is exciting as well as challenging. This is ‘their basketball,’ and nothing can change it. Aomine enjoys the blond’s company and vice versa (as seen from the manga) and knows that Kise could one day overwhelm him in terms of power (also from the manga). He knows that even if their basketball has changed, he wouldn’t trade it for the world.


PHEW! That was a long ass rant. Tl;dr - Aokise has a lot of potential, and I’m really sad that people actually shit on this ship. I wanted to bring this side of the ship into the light where it isn’t just Kise doing all the chasing.

I’ll upload the rest of the analysis later (teiko days, Aokise on casual days out, them from the Manga and Replace Plus, Knb Last Game, Official art and their screen time during games) So if you enjoyed this, reblog it or drop me a message!

You’re Not Breaking the Law

I’m hopping on my ever present soapbox to say something. I’ve been seeing a lot of posts lately claiming that the writer of NSFW fan fiction or the artist depicting NSFW artwork could be prosecuted if someone under 18 reads it or looks at it and their parent or guardian finds out. This is not true.

It is a misconception that you can go to jail if someone under 18 is reading your work on the internet. The only way you can be prosecuted is if you are sending it to them. Specifically sending it to them, as in an email, a private message, giving them access to a Google doc, etc. It is not illegal to post content meant for adults 18 and up on the internet.

In plain speech, here are the rules when it comes to fan works:

  1. Plainly label your fan works. This includes properly using the tag and rating system on AO3. If your work contains depictions of violence, non-consensual or underage sexual content, use the archive warnings or select “choose not to warn.” When properly tagged, readers must verify that they are of the age of majority in order to view such work; if they’re lying, it’s legally not your fault.
  2. If you post or reblog sexually explicit fan art, make sure your blog is flagged NSFW and thus will not show up in Tumblr searches.

That is it. That’s as far as it goes. If you do the bare minimum here — flagging your blog as containing adult content and plainly labeling it on AO3 — you’re legally in the clear. The FBI and Department of Justice concern themselves primarily with eradicating the creation and circulation of physical child pornography; they are not interested in prosecuting anyone for writing fan fiction.  (source: x)

It is illegal in the United States and many other countries to knowingly distribute sexual content to minors. The key word there is knowingly. Tumblr has safeguards in place for checking age, but we all know that there are ways around that. It would be impossible for me to know the age of every one of my almost 17,000 followers or the ages of the non-followers that read my work. Does that mean I’m breaking the law? No. I am making a good faith effort to mark my work and my blog as a place for those over 18. If a minor chooses to ignore that rule, that’s on them.    

Yes, if you’re under 18 you should stay off of my blog, as it states in my description that it is an NSFW and 18+ blog, but I won’t be prosecuted if you choose to be on there and you get caught. 

Once more for the people in the back:

If they’re lying, it’s legally not your fault.  

anonymous asked:

Hi wifu! I’ve been following your blog for a while and I really love your work! How did you get so popular?

This is…a very wide topic to discuss!

I feel like it’s really easy to forget that having ‘appealing’ art and being a very skilled artist are two different things. Why did that sketch by that popular artist get thousand of notes but my full illustration with background only got 5 notes? That’s very discouraging. Does that mean my drawing was worse? Not really, at least not in terms of execution.

It’s a little harsh to put it this way, but think of it as if we were on Tinder. It only takes two second to swipe left if your artwork doesn’t catch the viewer’s attention.

There’s a huge difference between being skilled and knowing how to present your art, and blaming others for not getting notes is a detrimental way of thinking that will only slow you down!

This is not just some anti-negativity bullshit. It’s practical. It’s not the average viewer’s fault if he ignored or “just liked” your piece without reblogging. Blaming external causes for your own lack of popularity just makes it so you keep doing what you do blindly, holding yourself back from improving.

I recommend checking this post by tamberella out for a much better understanding (and more insightful tips) on the topic of appealing art.

It doesn’t mean you shouldn’t strive for popularity (after all, especially if art’s gonna be your job, it’s important to understand what works and what doesn’t, in a field in which communication is key), but make sure you do it with understanding instead of blaming others or guilt tripping them into reblogging your art. (I made a comic about this a while ago)


Back to your question…there’s not a specific way to become popular.  I can only offer a few tips on attitude / blog management / drawing:

  • Practicing by drawing a lot is important but practicing by observing a lot is the key to improvement! Being exclusively self-referential leads to stagnation.
  • Observe what other people do, understand why certain things work more than others do. This doesn’t mean you should copy specific pieces. Just take the overall vibe of something and rework it. See what people like!
  • Find popular artists who do something you feel is similiar to what you do. Understand what is it that makes their art so appealing.
  • Artstyles work as a the sum of their parts. There are so many parameters when ‘rating’ a drawing. Anatomy, lineart, coloring, composition, style, perspective, posing etc. are just a few of them, and just because you have an understanding of some it doesn’t mean you got it all figured out. For example, realistic shading might not be the best choice with very cartoony proportions, but might work in some cases. Analyze single pieces instead of a whole gallery!
  • Make separate folders for the art you like solely for its content (as in fandom/character depicted), and the art you like for how it’s made. Name the folders accordingly, such as concept, composition, coloring, poses, etc. You’ll need these more than you realize.
  • Tag your drawings in the right way. The first 5 tags are the only ones showing up in the tumblr /tagged/ (and the first 20 tags are ones showing up in /search/), so use them carefully instead of filling them up with #this sucks i know im sorry, #i did this very quickly, #im so tired, and so on.
  • Be consistent! You won’t get much of a following if you post a sketch once every six months.
  • It’s ok to reblog your own art once or twice but filling your followers’ dash with the same drawing over and over again won’t make it suddenly go viral, so finding a good balance might be useful
  • Negativity can be very heavy to handle sometimes, and people who don’t know you just wanna have a good time looking at your art, without the angry/sad stuff. Getting an art-only blog might be a good idea - this is especially true if you’re not ranting about your personal life, but about the lack of attention your art gets. Be nice to your followers, blaming them for not reblogging your art is counterproductive!
  • Give it time! Regardless of your skill, it’s gonna take a while to gain an audience.

On a final note, I would like to clarify that at the end of the day you’re free to draw whatever you want, these are just tips for a better understanding of how visual impact affects the amount of visibility you get. As long as you’re having fun, keep drawing whatever it is that you’re drawing!

I hope this was somewhat helpful. Take care!

Things were going great with Killian despite the fact that they communicated almost solely through text message. She’d spent nearly the entire first week of November out of state chasing a particularly sneaky skip and she was pretty sure the number of texts between them had fallen into the thousands by now.

They talked a little about their lives, just little tidbits about their likes and dislikes and the gossip from their respective friend groups. Emma liked crime shows; the less scientifically accurate, the better. Killian was into sitcoms. They both enjoyed reading but where Emma loved horror and suspense, mainly every book Stephen King had ever written, Killian was actually into sensual romance novels. (He’d only been slightly embarrassed to admit it.)

David and Mary Margaret were trying to get pregnant, and Belle and Killian’s older brother Liam were pregnant; they’d practically just found out that she was 10 weeks along and Killian was psyched at the prospect of becoming an uncle. Ruby was getting over her recent heartbreak by beginning an interesting three-way relationship with a martial artist and a dog groomer, both women, both ridiculously head over heels for her. Killian’s buddy Will was inheriting a bar from his recently deceased boss. Regina and Robin were planning the most extravagant wedding ever, and by that she meant that Regina was planning the most extravagant wedding ever and Robin was passively agreeing with all her decisions. And Killian’s best friend Ariel’s Etsy shop was booming; apparently handmade mermaid tails and shell bras were in surprisingly high demand.

They learned quite a bit about each other. Their friendship was blooming…

But mostly they flirted.

(Sort of a) Acorn Press Acrylic Charm Review

Yoooo~~~~ my acrylic charms came today during a snowstorm and I totally did not expect it XDDD I thought the storm was going to delay it for sure. Kudos to USPS delivery guy (stay warm and stay safe man). It really made my day ヾ(*´∀`*)ノ

Here are the references for my Yuri on Ice and Overwatch characters charm set. I will be selling these at future cons and events. So check out my con schedule if you’re interested in purchasing them! I will probably sell them online for leftovers. I don’t have a store yet (as of 2/9/17) so check back on my tumblr or other social media (or you can message me) for updates!

Also, I find it super funny that overwatch and YOI characters came during a BLIZZARD, COLD and ICY day (no pun intended lol) 

They look super nice thanks to @acornpress ! I would highly recommend them if you are interested in selling acrylic charms for cons/online in the future. This is my first time ordering acrylic charms so take my words with a few grains of salt. Also I’ll be rambling all over the place and spamming run-ons so be aware :P

Your POV

With your hand wrapped in a towel to stop the bleeding, you let yourself be pulled from your work trailer. Jared and Jeannie stayed behind, making sure no one messed with the evidence, while Jensen guided you to his trailer.

It was easier letting him guide you, than having to think for yourself. Seeing the rose there, along with the note had messed with you more than you liked to admit, and you couldn’t see anything past that. “Why?” You whispered, a tear slipping down your cheek.

My Experience with Zap! Creatives


Alright- so here is my angry post about my experience with Zap Creatives. I really didn’t want to publish this but as many other artists also use them I wanted to share my experience with this company.  Prepare for a novel, as I am not happy at all.



I’ve been a customer with Zap since 2012. My total spent while dealing with this company totals in the thousands.  I’ve always had my files set up right, my naming conventions down pat and my colours spot on. I want to make this very clear. I used their now ‘old style’ 1 inch charms for all of my orders. The items I received never had any major imperfections, usually 1-3 in a batch of 100 of a single printed design.  I have had over 5000 charms from this company, so in the long run I had little to no imperfections. I boasted about the quality of the items, how they are durable, scratch resistant and vibrant.



Over the years I have expanded to over 50 unique designs, and had a large quality of each printed with them. I never had any issues.  The back and forth with the customer service wasn’t amazing, but it wasn’t something that really caused me any concern until recently.

In a recent order, December 2014, I ordered 500 charms. In this order, 60 of them were pony charms. Since 2012 I had updated these pony designs to new artwork. The naming convention was the same, but the customer service agent assured she replaced the files for me, and I was told all was fine. So while placing my order I did not worry - as I had reordered these newer designs multiple times in the past. So there shouldn’t be an issue, right?


Welp I was wrong, they sent me the 2012 designs rather than the 2013 designs that I had reordered multiple times throughout 2013-2014. Whatever, it was a mistake. Everyone makes them.  I’ve been dealing with them for a long time so it should not be an ordeal. I emailed them about the situation and I was given a reply within a few days

“Thank you for your reply. I have spoken to the production team and if you return the incorrect charms to the below address we will be able to get the replacements into production for you.”

Okay. I packed up the misprinted charms and sent them back to them right away. I assumed they would get my new charms mailed back out to me right away. The day I sent them back was December 19th. Well needless to say I was so wrong. I emailed Zap back for 2 months, finally getting a reply on February 4th.  They said they would have to wait for the charms to get back to them before they shipped out my replacements. I explained to them that I needed the charms for an event, and some were on backorder on my website after the holidays and I had customers expecting them.

“Thank you for your reply. I am afraid that there is not much we can do until we have the actual charms in our hands. If they do not arrive by the end of the week I will speak to my manager and see what we can do.

Please let me know if you need anything else.

Thanks :) “

So they said no can do, we need the charms in hand. I didn’t hear back from them for a couple weeks, so I sent them another email. In the email I sent them pictures of the mailed out parcel (I take pictures of everything I can when dealing with stuff like this) with the shipping label and information, and anything else I could do to help speed up the process. No reply.

March 1st rolls around. I needed to reorder another design desperately as I had sold out quickly, and emailed them saying I was pretty upset that this is being handled as badly as it was.

“Thank you for your email. I am so sorry about not being in touch. It is no excuse but it has been incredibly busy here and this slipped through the net. I have spoken to my manager and your returns must have got lost in the post as I have not received anything. As it has taken me so long to get back to you if you confirm what you require replacing and I can get this sent out to you this week. “

Great, exactly what I wanted to hear. Whatever, mix ups happen, the holidays just wrapped up, everyone was busy. I apologise for coming off angry, and resend her the design files and quantities to make sure they are correct. I reorder the design I needed as well.

It’s now March 10th. Zap announces they are getting rid of the old style charms. I’m pretty concerned. Now I need to backtrack to when Zap first announced they had a new style of charms – I ordered some samples of my designs in the new product. The new product is awful, the images feel like a sticker and I can literally pick them off with my finger nail (see Toothless image, top right ear). They also have this lovely white ring around the print that looks awful. So of course when I hear the style I print with is heading out, I email them to see whats up. I calmly explain to them that I was concerned about consistency (ordering restock of old style charms with the new style is going to suck, but I don’t have a choice so whatever) and asked why they are going to be discontinued out of curiosity’s sake.

“Thank you for your email. The reason we are stopping this service is all explained in the very detailed blog that Dave wrote. You can find the blog on our website. “

Wow, thanks for the copy paste answer. “Go read it on our blog!” I posted the blog the day it was emailed to me in an artist alley group I am in to give everyone a heads up about the change in case they didn’t get an email. I go on to explain that it sucks that this happened before convention season, and to port over all the charms into the new style is going to take a lot of work. I was told that it was just as much work to port over my designs to the new style as it was to go to another company, so it was up to me what I wanted to do. Wow, really? Yeah, because that is exactly what I want to hear right now after being a patron to your business for years – to be basically to be told “If you don’t like it, leave”. So I’m furious at this point, but I don’t know exactly what to do. Should I drop my entire convention budget before April 6th and order the old style charms to have enough stock for the year, just deal with it and go with the new style, or do as they suggested and go to another company? I pick the first option.  

I count my stock, tally my totals and reorder one last time with the company right before cut off day April 6th.

I still haven’t gotten my replacement charms from December. I email their customer service to inquire about the charms and to make my new order, and they reply that they were sent out in March. Thanks for the notification with tracking, that honestly would have helped out with my stress. They decided to mail the items together, and it was just yesterday, April 9th, that I received them. 

Needless to say, the items were horrible. The first thing I noticed was the acrylic was different. My boyfriend was the first to point it out. The acrylic was a different colour (more yellow then the usual white) and noticeably thinner. This doesn’t work for me, as something Zap likes to boast about how they thrive for consistency, something that is very important to me. This wasn’t that big of a deal until I seen the Baymax charms. 



The quality was just… awful. More than half of the items where misprinted or miscut, but mostly miscut. The Baymax on the left in the photo is the one from my previous order with Zap, and the right ones are the examples of how they were cut in my new order. This is just unacceptable. At this point I feel like the company is trying to make a point about their old printing after I complained to them, and now they are trying to reinforce that the printing style is bad. Never in my 3 years of dealing with them had I seen so many mistakes in one order of one design! I’m livid at this point, and email Zap telling them that this is unacceptable. I cancel my last big order of charms with them, and ask for a refund for the Baymax charms that are garbage. I write them a novel about why I am upset, how I have been loyal as a customer and want to work this out, and that I want this fixed.

And this is the reply I was given, word for word, copy pasted:

“Thank you for your reply. Once again I can only apologies. I have cancel your order for you. If you could return the charms that you require refunding to the below address and once we receive them I can process the refund.

Zap! Creatives 
3F Brighouse Business Village 
Brighouse Road 
Middlesbrough 
TS2 1RT 

Please let me know if you need anything else.

Thanks :) 


How would you rate my reply?
Great    Okay    Not Good “


Uh, needless to say it was not good. 


So I am 300% done at this point. I dropped Zap Creatives completely , and will be dealing with another company from now on. Dealing with this new company has been extremely refreshing, as they actually talk to you and want your business, unlike the automated responses like with Zap.

** UPDATE: I just checked my email, and got an email from Zap offering my money back and to convert a few of my best selling charms for free, as well as sending me some new samples - only after seeing my article.


This should be something that is offered to all of those who have been using your service for years and are on the fence about the new style charms. When you have people that are concerned about the new style printing, like myself, this was something that should have been offered from the start to keep their business. You could spend pennies offering people who are genuinely concerned about the switch by sending them some samples to prove this is a superior service. Or you can just lose peoples business all together.



People don’t like change, this is a fact of life. And there has been little to no accommodation regarding this change.



If you are going to change something, you can’t just tell people "Trust me, our new products are better” after they have been purchasing the same product from you for years.

**UPDATE 2: Zap retracted their offer to refund me after I emailed them the amount not usable and return shipping. Zap is officially one of the worst businesses I have ever dealt with.

Moral of the story - I guess it takes an angry article to get good customer service, rather then years of being a loyal customer.

PSA TO FANS WHO STAN ‘unpopular’/’underrated’ GROUPS : please reblog

So I’m writing this to other fans that know the struggle of being constantly scared for the disbandment of one of your fave groups. I know Nu'est fans, Topp Dogg fans, After School, Stellar, B.I.G, Madtown, 24k, Boys Republic, MYNAME, Berry Good, Rainbow, Sonamoo, f(x), History and so many other fandoms can relate. You all know who you are, and I’m praying, hoping, that we can all help each other out again, like we’ve done before and band together to help support a group that I really don’t want to disappear like so many others have.

If you’re interested in helping out that would mean the world to me but if not, maybe you could check out some of the links I’ve attached below, or REBLOG, or even just check out one video: BIGSTAR’s most recent comeback Full Moon Shine. If you’d like to just skip to the links, I’ll have everything under the cut, but if you’d like to read a little about the group and hear my thoughts that would be awesome. (There is quite a bit, I will warn you.)

Shut Up and Dance With Me by wittyy_name

Lance and his friends have been regulars at the Altea Dance Studio for years. Not just for classes, but to hang out, practice, and spend time with good people who love dancing. Every year, they audition to be one of the few representing Altea at the regional dance competition. Lance always auditions solo, but this year he misses out on auditions and blows his chance to participate. And so does his self-proclaimed rival, Keith.Luckily, Shiro comes up with a brilliant plan: convince Lance and Keith to audition as a duo.With a little convincing, and a lot of effort, these two might just be able to pull it off and go to regionals… or they might crash and burn.

Moth and Flame by wittyy_name

Keith has been coming back to Altea Tattoos for months now, and it has little to do with the fact that his best friend is the piercer and more to do with the beautiful tattoo artist with talented hands and a smile that makes him weak at the knees.
Lance has had a lot of customers in his days, left his mark on plenty of people, but none so memorable as Keith. He finds himself turning to the door with every chime of the bell, hoping to see eyes like the night sky and a shy smile that could rival the moon.
When they meet at a concert, the spark between them ignites, creating a heat that’s impossible to resist. They’re both inexplicably drawn to each other. Like a moth to a flame.

After a terrifying experience during which Lance, seemingly, dies, Keith is haunted by horrible nightmares of holding his comrade in his arms while he took his final breath. To the point where he can’t sleep unless he knows for absolute certain that Lance is alive. And while the attention is surprising, Lance doesn’t really have a problem with Keith checking up on him. Or the fact that Keith only seems totally comforted when he can cuddle Lance close and hear his heart beat. After all, there’s nothing wrong with two bros cuddling. It doesn’t MEAN anything. Or, at least, that’s what Lance keeps telling himself.

Keith has one rule: keep any interaction with a customer terse and professional. It’s a rule he’s strictly followed since he’s started working at Shiro’s shop.
Then Lance walks through the door and Keith thows professionalism right out the window, along with any semblance of dignity he had left.

Lance continued anyway, “At least I realized it, though. I realized I wasn’t staying after hours with you just to make sure I clean up better than you do, and I wasn’t looking after the rodents on day’s you were away to prove I could do it better. I did it because I have the fucking hots for some dumb rodent trainer with an even dumber mullet and a smile that could destroy me.”

-A Voltron: Legendary Defender Pet Store AU in which Keith realizes Lance’s childish rivalry with him in the store means more to him than he’d like to admit.

Keith is just trying to live his life as a freelance illustrator with his cat, keeping up with bills by having two part-time jobs.But when he keeps bumping into Mr. Tall, Tan, & Handsome after a music event at his bar, well, maybe he’s willing to make time for pretty, blue eyes and a laugh like silver bells.

Dancing With Blunette by BleuSarcelle
Status: Complete
He didn’t have an epiphany or a vision during his dreams that told him that he wanted to spend the rest of his life with Lance.

Honestly, it only took a soft bright smile from Lance during one lazy afternoon after his boyfriend had come home from work and started dancing around their living room with a grumpy Blunette on his arms from being woken up from her cat nap.

That’s when he knew.

(The one where Keith wants to propose to his boyfriend and almost has a heart attack.) (Then the other one where Lance proposes back and Keith cries.) (The following one where they both cry because wedding make you cry.) (And that last one where they adopt.)

“Mom, I can’t do this right now, I have to get on the plane.”

“But Emma, you can’t just leave like this!”

The queue moved forward. Emma balanced her phone, passport and boarding pass in one hand, trailing her suitcase behind her. “It’s just work, mom. I’ll be home again in a couple of days.”

“What about Walsh?”

“Walsh and I are fine.” Emma’s grip on the phone tightened. “Really, I’ve gotta go.”

“Are you sure you’ll be okay all on your own?” Ingrid asked, not for the first time.

“I’m a big girl, I can handle myself.”

“Oh, I know, I know. I’m just worried, honey. You know I only want the best for you.”

“Yeah. I know.” The memory of Ingrid giving her a backpack instead of a black bag to keep her things in came to mind. The time she brought Emma shopping for clothes that actually fit her. The endless amount of support she’d shown when Emma decided to study law - ever since Ingrid took Emma in at sixteen, she had wanted nothing but the best for her. “I’ve gotta go now. Bye.”

Saeran Headcanons

Hey ya howdy doodle doo. After writing my fanfiction, Peppermint, a bunch of head canons about Saeran just started flooding into my head. They’re a mix of my own HCs and some of those obvious HCs that are thrown out there. Enjoy~


  • First one’s the most obvious: HE SMELLS LIKE PEPPERMINT. Always. 
  • Saeran listens to any and every type of music genre; it depends on his mood. His taste ranges from Classical to EDM to punk rock to rap to K-pop to English pop. It’s just all over the place. He listens to whatever sounds nice to him.
  • He never downloads full albums. He picks out songs that sound good to him.
  • On that note, he won’t specifically follow any bands or music artists. Every once in a while, he’ll go back and check on them in case they released any new songs that sounds nice.
  • Instrumental > Lyrics.
  • He will into the depths of the internet if it means finding an instrumental version of a song with good bgm.
  • Saeran has cold hands, but a warm body. For some reason his hands are always cold?? 
  • But because of that high body temperature, his cold hands balance out the warmth. 
  • The tip of his nose and ears are also always cold.
  • Doesn’t like excessive physical contact.
  • NO TOUCHING THE ART. 
  • Prefers initiating any forms of affection.
  • Likes it when you’re affectionate as well….But he’ll act all Tsundere about it.
  • Initially, he hated when you showed any affection towards him because his mind was still healing from his traumatic life experiences. He was insecure about himself and hence, always pushed you away. Like…why would you even love a person like him?? How could you be humanly capable of doing that?
  • But then as time went on, he accepts your love eventually. His emotions are set, somewhat, right and now he can’t live without your affection.
  • Gimme that daily dose of MC
  • Loves cuddling with you, especially on the sofa or on the floor in front of the sofa when you’re watching TV together. 
  • He sits behind you and tucks you into him by wrapping his arms loosely around your waist and placing his chin on your head while you sit between his half crossed legs.
  • He acts very nonchalant about it. Like it doesn’t affect him at all.
  • “Don’t lie to yourself Saeran I can feel your heart beating erratically.”
  • Turns red easily, especially the tips of his ears.
  • His sex varies depending on his mood. Sometimes he just wants innocent, vanilla sex. Other times, he’ll be up for some rough sex. 
  • Rough sex usually happens when he’s jealous or when you tease him too much about something.
  • “Oh? You won’t back down? Time to punish you MC.”
  • Doesn’t like bondage play or any form of BDSM. It reminds him of his childhood when his mother used to tie him up. So never in a million years would he ever tie you up.
  • Loves it when you play with his hair, especially when you run your hands through them. 
  • It soothes him.
  • His nightmares still haunt him so the first thing you do is wake him up by gently calling his name out, then running your fingers through his hair. It calms him down almost instantly.
  • Will hold you tightly next to him for the rest of the night after a nightmare episode.
  • And you will run your hands through his hair gently and softly whisper comforting things to him.
  • Wears his sweater and fluffy plain stuff at home. Maybe he’ll wear them for daily errands when he leaves the house. But turns into Edgelord™ when you go out on dates.
  • Yes, he still has his edgy Unknown clothes. 
  • Yes, he still wears them. 
  • No, they do not remind him of the time he was with Mint Eye because he picked these clothes out himself. No one forced him to wear them so it was one of the few things he had under his own control. His edgy clothes remind him that he is in control of his own life. Rika did not pick it out for him.
  • He mostly wears his plain clothes though. Because they’re more comfortable and “I just cba to change all the time MC.”
  • Is a child. He is definitely Saeyoung’s twin brother. He just has a different way of showing it. He’ll be all like “wtf are you idiots doing?” and then join in on that thing the said idiots are doing [namingly MC and Saeyoung].
  • “What are you talking about this is dumb. I want no part in this. Also MC, pass me the whipping cream. I’ll show you how it’s done.” *proceeds to put whipping cream into a sleeping Yoosung’s hand* “Hyung, pass me the feather. You’ll only mess up, which is why I’m doing it.” *Proceeds to tickle Yoosung’s nose*
  • He always denies his similarities to Saeyoung but on the inside, he’s actually relived that he turned out like his brother rather than his mother or father.
  • He’s felt loneliness, so he makes sure to never make you feel lonely. He loves you so much and you know it. And he knows that you know it. Even if you two ever fight, the silence between you two won’t last for more than an hour.
  • Loves ice cream - Another obvious one.
  • Ice cream dates in Edgelord™ clothing.
  • People stare at you two. They’re actually staring at Saeran because they feel intimidated.
  • Saeran doesn’t mind giving off an intimidating aura. It keeps people away. He is not a people person. He will practically die if a stranger comes and tries to initiate some small talk.
  • He hates small talk.
  • He’s the type of person who’ll make you talk to the call center operator or restaurant receptionist if he wants food. 
  • “Please MC, we’ll starve at this rate. Just do it.”
  • Doesn’t like PDA, but will hold hands with you or hook your pinkies together when you walk. There’s a lot of hand holding involved with him. Occasionally, he’ll wrap his arm around your waist in crowded places or if someone’s checking you out/attempt to flirt with you.
  • “Oh don’t mind me MC. I’m just openly marking you as my territory like this….unless you’d prefer me to kiss you?”
  • If you say yes, he turns red, then pecks your lips really quickly and his tough guy act drops.
  • Although he’s not a fan of PDA, he just can’t help kissing you if there’s ice cream at the corner of your mouth.
  • “I’m just helping you clean up MC.”
  • At home, it’s a different story though; kisses right after eating ice cream are his favorite thing because 1) your lips taste like ice cream. 2) They’re cold and it just feels so good kissing your lips because he has a high body temperature, especially during summer. Just…he lives for those cold kisses post-ice cream.
  • Initially doesn’t get along with Yoosung because he reminds him of Rika. Like, he knows they’re not the same and that Yoosung is a completely different person, but he can’t help it. Rika really messed him up.
  • “You should dye your hair another color, Yoosung.”
  • It takes some time, but Saeran can finally be around Yoosung without fidgeting so much.
  • After he gets over it, he gets along with Yoosung because video games.
  • Yes, Saeran games. You know it. I know it. He knows it. We all know it. He likes to play video games. However, he won’t obsess over them like Yoosung.
  • Doesn’t like Zen’s narcissism, but gets along with him otherwise.
  • Gets along with Jumin because he won’t initiate any unnecessary conversations. Again, this man can hold a conversation so he’s a yes to be around.
  • Also, with Jumin comes Elizabeth the III. Saeran loves Elly, but he’s not very different from his brother in showing his…”affection”. Mostly because he doesn’t know how to pet animals? His affection is low key animal abuse because he spins Elly around and attempts to hug her tight. So when Jumin tells him what to do and what not to do [”No, don’t hold her from there. It’ll disturb her fur arrangement.”] Saeran, much to Saeyoung’s dismay, is allowed near Elly. Elly is naturally terrified at first because “WHY ARE THERE TWO OF THEM??! THEY’RE IDENTICAL WHAT IS HAPPENING?!” And then eventually, she’s able to distinguish between Saeran and Saeyoung.
  • Once, Saeyoung takes his glasses off and puts on some mint green lenses, hoping to trick Elly to come to him.
  • The cat goes straight for Saeran.
  • “Hyung…she came to me.” is that a smug tone in his voice??
  • Gets along with Jaehee because she’s the most sensible person around.
  • Don’t even mention V to him.
  • This boy will get get nightmares if he’s able to sleep in the first place. That’s right. Those dark circles under his eyes aren’t just due to sleepless nights because of nightmares. Saeran can’t sleep at night. His mind starts overthinking and before he knows it, it’s dawn.
  • He’s most comfortable when the room is cold and he has a thick blanket weighing down on him. It makes him feel like someone’s hugging him. It helps him sleep. Plus, there’s no actual human contact involved. It’s a win win. 
  • He loves it when you sleep with him though. 
  • He doesn’t love it when you throw your leg over him while you sleep…
  • “Seriously MC, I’m trying to sleep here get off of me. Go to your side of the bed if you’re gonna be like this.”
  • When dawn cracks after a sleepless night, Saeran drags himself to the living room and settles onto the sofa.
  • Your sofas aren’t the cold, leather type that are uncomfortable to sit on. You guys own one of those huge, comfy sofas that swallow you whole if you sit on them.
  • When Saeran sits on the sofa, he makes sure to get his blanket with him.
  • The sofa is the one place he always falls asleep on. It’s just so comfy and warm that as soon as he lies down on it, he stuffs his face into a corner, because sunlight, and he’ll doze off.
  • You’ve woken up to find Saeran on the sofa about a million times.
  • Due to his lack of sleep at night, he often takes naps early during the day after dawn cracks. It’ll probably last for 3-5 hours or something before he’s woken up by the growling of his stomach and the scent of the food you’re cooking. His day typically starts at about 11 pm.
  • Saeran’s sleeping face is probably the most innocent thing you’ll set your eyes on. He’s so peaceful and stress free who he sleeps. 
  • If he ever got an official job, he would work as a professional hacker who tests security systems for big companies. 
  • “Gotta put those hacking skills to use MC. Gotta corrupt things outside the bedroom too y’know.”
  • He loves gazing at the sky, especially when it’s partially cloudy. He’ll just go to a park and lie down on the grass and stare at the sky for hours. Eventually, he’ll even fall asleep under the shade of a tree.
  • When he looks at the sky, he truly feels free.
  • Saeran probably studied the language of flowers at some point because of his inner Ray.

Authors note: We’ve been lacking with them fics but y’all probably understand so I don’t have to explain myself. I am done all of my requests and Mimi has one left so once she’s done that we’re opening up the requests again so look forward to that. Enjoy this fic for now!

           It was Monsta X’s concert today and you got invited by the group to come along so you could chill backstage. You went to most of their concerts to support them so you were more than happy to join them.

Jooheon: Are you on your way? We’re leaving soon!
Y/N: I’m downstairs :)
Jooheon: Alright, wait there we’re gonna be there in a sec.

           After five minutes of waiting the boys finally showed up, they snuck you into the bus and took off to the concert. Unfortunately, in order to avoid paparazzi and crazy fans you had to get to the concert hall quite early, and by quite early they meant they had to be there at 5am. Once you pulled up to the place you saw fans already camping outside so getting past them without getting noticed would be hard. Not a lot of people knew who you were and you wanted for it to stay that way, you knew the boys since their debut, Jooheon was your best friend and introduced you to everyone once he joined the group, all of you got on quite well and they grew fond of you and wanted to hang out more often.
