Greatest/sweetest ranking of BL movies/series that you don't wanna miss!!

UPDATED: As of April 4, 2017 !!!!!
Hi guys!!! been addicted by Bl movies/series/webisodes/ and even short movies and these are my rankings of it from best to worst xD

  1.  Takumi-kun series movies - especially series 2,3 and 5. A big DaiMao fan here xD
  2.  Love Sick Series 1&2 - PerWin, PhunNoh, and OmMick are my ships
  3. ***HIStory webseries: Obsessed - the title says it all! if you loved Gloomy Salad Days and loves a whole lot of kiss scenes then you will definitely love this! very nice chemistry next to my beloved DaiMao <3
  4. ***SKAM - oh shocks whoever told me to watch this is an angel! love love love love it to the max! who knew norwegian Bl can be this good?
  5.  Make it Right the Series - Very Funny and Sweet!! Kyaa! TeeFuse and BookFrame are my OTPs very much like Lovesick!
  6. ***Uncontrolled Love 2 - the directors are very mean. i really thought this was a sad ending…but it was not! love the possessiveness the kiss and the after credits <3
  7.  Love love you (Love’s Coming 2) - haven’t watched this yet, but the trailers are just, ooommph! If ever you have a copy PM me XD
  8.  Like love Series 1-2 -I love the uncut scenes the most. And the story gets better xD
  9.  Junjou Pure Heart - sweeeeteeest ever!  really, those awwww moments xD
  10. ***Fanatic Love - Game themed BL coming through! I loved the side characters especially the sister <3 Must watch!
  11.  Waterboyy the movie - a must watch especially to those fans who have been missing love sick series xD Ngern-oppa is sooo hot here.
  12. Uncontrolled Love- Finally, Master x Servant BL!!! the uke is soo cute and seme is sooo possessive can’t wait for the second part!
  13. ***My bromance:the reunion - this is the series remake of the movie my bromance. and thank goodness that in the first season nobody dies! a different conflict altogether but still the same plot.
  14.  Counter Attack Web series - QingYu for the win xDD. they are sooooo married. I also recommend their photoshoot sessions, more kissing scenes than the series xD loving the doctor’s cow licked hair, kawaiiii xD
  15.  Addicted/Heroin Web Series - Sweetest punk I ever watched really. I wish for uncut scenes! and I demand a continuation!
  16. ***Ame to kisu - Love this movie! it made me read the manga and you will love how cute the uke is and how the story was very well portrayed in the movie
  17. *** The right man - there are only a few BL movies/series who would portray the love of a parent and their worries. i loved this film because other than the love story unfolding, the relationship between the mother and the son progresses too <3
  18. Yandaixie No.10- honestly, the story has a lot of promise! it was very good but I didn’t like how the first season ended being them still in bad terms…then hearing that there won’t be a second season!!!! or so i heard.
  19. ***SOTUS - hazers! hihihi. if you’re ooking for a cute-tsundere uke then this is what you’re looking for! it has the all goody kissing scenes and a very good college plot. very recommended
  20.  Love’s Coming - Nai x Gump xDDD
  21. Love Place 2(Shiawase no Katachi)- A continuation of Love Place 1. Finally an English sub that I’ve been waiting! Typical BL story, most of the time you can read in a manga but you can feel the characters feeling very deeply!
  22.  Grey Rainbow - Has every thing I want in a BL,marriage, sweet moments and even a kid! and it also has something I didn’t like…death! why!?!
  23.  Doushitemo Furetakunai - the story is great and is really based on the manga. Loved the characters. this is my first BL ever just forgot to post teehee :P !!!
  24. ***HIStory webseries: My Hero - so this is one of the ghost themed BL. Comedic. but I do not like that the ghost girl experienced all the sweet moments using the boy’s body. oops spoiler. BTW the seme is sooo hot *wink*
  25.  To you for me–chocolates - I laughed at this BL so much. It really portrayed the case of miracles to two people that should be in love. wonder when it will end?
  26.  Paternity Leave - you’ll love it, Mpreg xDD
  27.   eCupid - movie about the greatest app for semes who take advantage of their uke’s love xD
  28.  Just Friends? - hottest and sweetest forbidden love I have ever watched!! sadly it was tooooo short for a very good plot movie xD
  29.  Udagawachou de mattete yo - sooo cute! as in supeer!!! one of the best live action next to Doushitemo Furetakunai <3 <3
  30. ***HIStory Webseries: Stay away from me - brother’s theme! yehey! though I wished for more sweetness. the eyes of the uke seem to catch my attention a lot in a not so okay way. but I STILL LOVED IT.
  31.   Two Weddings and a funeral - I loved the comedy aspect of it. It mainly focused on the life of gays and how the ‘two weddings” conquered it with love. but why Tina !?!?! why ?!?!?!
  32.   My Bromance - I love the on-relationship scenes but I just hope the ending was not when one dies. I bawled for this one,it’s like rising you up,then pulling you dooown,why!?!?!?waaah! But the story was really good!
  33.  Happy together - loved the couple sooo much! being 6 years together, those fights and make-ups seems like a typical married life 
  34. Oppressive Love - half-horror and half BL and they actually became a couple! to bad the older brother had to possess him…ooops spoiler ;-P
  35.  Ai no kotodama 2
  36. ***Bad romance the series - another side story BL but because they started the series already together and the ending was so sweet so it is okay.
  37. ***I’m here our twelve years is a reincarnation legend - short shounen ai chinese BL. if you’re on to watching just the sweet, innocent stuff, then this is good for you :)
  38.  Takuya and Joon jae “the lover” - you may be a bit disappointed because it is missing some smexy moments like kissing and “you-know” but the story is great with lots of laughs and sweetness. hoping for season 2 
  39. ***Love Complex - this is a thai series but the BL part is a side story and doesn’t develop much though it is still on the first two episodes. some of you may not like it because it is on a side story but promise, the main story is very funny.
  40.  Docchi mo Docchi - may be low budget, but that romcom theme was perfectly executed xD sooo funny xD
  41.  Itsuka no kimi e - loved the story so much. It was like reading Junjou Pure Heart again xD soooo cute! Wishing for more kiss scenes though. 
  42.  Ai no kotodama 1
  43.  Seven Days Monday-Thursday, Friday-Sunday - perfectly executed as of those of the manga
  44. Hollyoaks (Ste and Harry) - lots of problems; closet gay, HIV, parents are against, even teachers then there are also cocaine involvement. wut?! haha but the story and how they still get back together is what makes it great. 
  45.  Diary of Tootsies - Very very funny!! as in very funny! but they left Gus and Top’s story hanging, which is what I’ve been waiting…sigh
  46.  Fujimi orchestra live action - it’s like the BL version of Nodame Cantabile. the movie needs a sequel. it’s not that they did not end up together but the movie ended with the seme still pursuing the uke xD 
  47.  Go go go G boys - very funny, packed with hot bishies. Last part after credits is a must seen
  48. Farewell my ghost boyfriend - short movie. I’m not on vote on the new ship. i still wish there was some kind of miracle for the ghost. huhu 
  49.  Love Place - I preferred the part two (2) than the first one, more Bl action, though it is still not translated
  50.  Boku no Kareshi wo Shoukai Shimasu - was hoping for more kiss scenes xD
  51.  Gloomy Salad days - ep13-14 only. Hidoku Shinaide story, bully and the bullied. You’ll be hoping for more.
  52.  Love of Siam - honestly, a good plot, really. It just needs some tweaks on that bad ending,urgh. Hoping for season 2 to change it.
  53. I’m yours - a one-sided love of a robot to a human and he’s quest to help the guy to achieve love. it was badly cut, I don’t know. it was missing some parts when I watched it so I am still heavily confused.
  54.  Love next door 2 - Watched XD but still looking for subs. but very promising especially in terms of comedy and hotness.
  55.  Mr x and I - First Season: First and Second story only, the other two has horrible ending, I advise this to those who do not wish to see a sad ending. Second Season: Loved the ending, hated the hetero guy, urggghh
  56.   Princess Princess D - actually, this is a live action adapted from a shoujo manga. full of fanservice and crossdressers and will leave you laughing at the clichès and corniness. 
  57.  Love next door - the story escalated quickly and the ‘love’ (sweetness) I was searching for was too short in the plot.
  58.  A Pair of Love - so-so xD
  59.  Time line - Watch the first couple only, and/or the last one. never ever the second one, it still gives me goose bumps till now
  60. Me my familiar people - uhhh…actually I didnt quite get the story. it was soo confusing. its like he has s*x to another then I don’t know maybe his bestfriend too?
  61.  Teacher and student - because I was expecting that light, romantic theme I was deeply disappointed by that twist as it turns out to be too psychological. One of my least favorites next to Kindan no Koi. 
  62.  Kindan no koi - simple……i hated it. the plot twist at the end was just tooo much, really, too much. Still a good movie though, but definitely my least favorite.

This is an edited list XD those with *** are newly posted as of April 4. Will update for more lateerrr! Ask me for links if ever you are interested xDDD hehehe

anonymous asked:

Do you know any break up fics with a happy ending?

Thank you for these requests! ALL ABOARD THE ANGST TRAIN! (I couldn’t include a lot of fics because the breakup aspect is a spoiler, but let me know if I missed any that you think should be on here!)


Yuuri and Victor Break Up (With a Happy Ending!)


rekindling by fan_nerd, Mature, 9.1k
Victor stands on Yuuri’s doorstep in the pouring rain with a bouquet of flowers. It’s the middle of the night. The tall man is out of breath, soaking wet, and his eyes are red. Yuuri sighs, letting his ex-boyfriend in like the sympathetic fool that Victor knows he is.
“What are you doing here?”
He hurries to catch his breath and reply, but his mouth is dry. Victor doesn’t exactly have an answer to that question. WHAT THE HECK THIS IS AMAZING

Break the Cycle by SigmundFreud, Explicit, 26k
Yuuri’s neck was bright red, matching the colors of his cheeks. His eyes were half-lidded with pupils blown wide. He could try to avoid Victor all he wanted, but standing this close to the man made Yuuri lose all rational thought. Victor was like a drug, the strongest drug Yuuri knew, and he could never reject those lips. I love this fic omg

Equal Footing by runningwafers, Gen, 4.3k
When Yuuri says he wants to end things the night before the free skate, Victor breaks down. Maybe it’s the catalyst they need to finally get on the same page about their relationship. 

See You Next by rougeandtonic, Explicit, 12k (WIP)
Yuuri realizes that he’ll sabotage Victor’s career if he asks him to coach and compete at the same time. This leads to a standoff of ultimatums over who will skate and who won’t. A standoff that ends with Victor in St Petersburg and Yuuri half a world away. SO MUCH ANGST 

Let’s End This by DawnMalfoy, Not Rated, 1.9k
Yuuri is not good at difficult conversations, so when it comes to having a difficult conversation with Victor things don’t go as he planned them to. HAPPY ENDING!

The Love We Deserve by cactusoctupus, Mature, 20k
The thing is Victor is so beautiful, so brilliant. And he always imagined that Victor was just around Yuuri to have fun. To have something to do. The proposal however, made it too real. Yuuri could not accept Victor loving him that way. Because Victor deserved better than that. He deserved better. I haven’t read this yet but it was rec’d to me by a follower!

They Say by momichi, Teen, 3.6k
They say Victor and Yuuri aren’t really a thing, but Yuri Plisetsky knows better. Very cute and a bit angsty!

Holding on for Dear Life by icterine, Teen, 2.4k
It turns out that sometimes heartbreak happens in seconds, unexpectedly – and once it does, there’s no dulling of the senses. Victor’s heart shatters. Great one-shot!

The Man Who Can’t Be Moved by deeleeon, Teen, 9.3k (WIP)
Victor and Yuuri have known each other for a long time…
“We’ve been friends for 6 years, dated for another 3, was married for 2 and…. got divorced 2 years ago.” Victor says as he drinks his beer.
“Maybe that’s the reason why you still can’t let go… You guys have known each other for such a long time.” Chris replies as he looks as his friend.
“I should be fine. I’m the one who asked for a divorce…” Victor smiles bitterly as he stares at his drink. 

Compromises by Ellie_Rosie, Teen, 51k **Graphic Depictions of Violence 
Their relationship was one of compromises, Yuuri thought, usually in Victor’s favour. Not that Yuuri minded - in all likelihood, he would probably set himself on fire if Victor complained about being cold. But there was one thing Yuuri point blank refused to compromise on; he would not step foot within a 100 metre radius of an ice rink. WOW!

Our Love by flippednique, Not Rated, 16k
“I want a divorce.” There was a barrage of emotions on Yuuri’s face that ranged from shock, to hurt, to disbelief, to pained, to angry, to livid before he pulled away from Viktor completely, grabbed his scarf and left the house with the door banging on his way out. The word, “Fine.” rang like a death sentence. Strangely enough, Viktor felt like he could breathe. Sooo angsty omg

We Don’t Have to Stay Buried by nagoyadelay, Teen, 6k (WIP)
Yuuri moved to Russia to be with Viktor. But everything went wrong. Two and a half years after a brutal break-up, Yuuri and Viktor have an unexpected encounter that leaves them both confused, vulnerable, and possibly… ready to try again? Have they both grown enough as people to form a lasting relationship? Or will they repeat the mistakes that doomed them the first time around? This is so so good so far! 

stay by my side by paranoid_fridge, Not Rated, 3.1k
“Finally!” somebody shouts and Yuuri jumps. Russian Yuri stomps toward him, expression dark. “He’s on his third round of that.” Yuri jerks a thumb to the rink behind his back. “Make him stop before he hurts himself.” Another great happy ending fic!

Happy Chanbaek Day!

since today is chanbaek day i decided to share some of my favorite chanbaek moments..

sooo…~

skinship… chanbaek is known for not having much skinship… but once they have it.. it renders us all speechless …

see what i’m talking about?

another thing that i love about chanbaek is how they share their love on instagram.. baek’s update for yeol’s b-day and yeol’s updates for baek’s b-day say it all…

A kiss! Yes byun baekhyun is so fucking obvious that  he posted a pic of his lips kissing!

Chanyeol, however, tried to be less obvious taking a photo with a thirdwheel and saying that he wants bbh to celebrate his bday with him as well 


But.. that was after posting a vid of him wishing bbh’s standee -that he took from that nature republic event or whatever- a happy b-day.. if this ain’t love idk what is


Something else i love about chanyeol is how he seems to be baek’s knight in a shining armor.. always taking care of him 



Here you can see that he stopped clapping just to make sure baekhyun lands safely even tho kai -im not sure if he was kai plz correct me if i was wrong- was clapping ..


And since i love caring!yeol so much here is another one

So it was chanyeol’s off-day and and instead of resting or having fun he drove baek to his schedule place like the perfect bf he is .. this is really cute T^T


Enough talking about chanyeol now..lets talk about baekhyu…and how he wants to be with his cute bf all the time



Chanyeol was in the show roommate and i guess baekhyun missed him a lot thst he went to see him.. they look so awkward i feel like cy wanted to do more than hold bbh hand but then he realized that they are not alone and people will be seeing this so..

also cy being the caring bf he is asked baek how did he come and baek said by bus and tgfklgjfgf

And since we are talking about baek.. dont you find it a little bit  weird how he goes and bites someone’s ass.. unzips someone’s pants.. being touchy touchy with all members and all… but when it comes to cy he becomes so awkward and flushes and stuff?

anonymous asked:

Hi emma! I'm really struggling with time management recently. I'd be given a week or two weeks notice before the deadline of my homework or before a test and I still find myself putting it off until the day or two days before and then I just end up panicking. Do you have any tips? Thank you!

Hey! Here are some things I do to help attempt to solve my own time management issues:

  • make a note of it - you’ve just received notification of a task, so put a note somewhere about it. If you use a planner, add an issue and due date. Perhaps even add a reminder like “Science homework due next week!”. This can help you keep track of your time management when it comes to making sure you allocate time prior. For me, it is good motivation because I think how much easier it would be to get started sooner rather than later.
  • draft it - I have started drafting every essay/assessment/task I do because it helps sooo much. It gives me an idea what they markers are looking for, what I should and want to include. I’m able to roughly plan out the structure and what needs to be added or researched. It also means I can come back it again and again for reference. I always feel having a draft makes the process less daunting since I’ve already got an idea - I’m not starting from scratch.
  • break it down - once you’ve got that plan, you can mark out the key areas you need to do. For example, an introduction! When I’m typing up an assessment, I tend to write out the key headers so I have an easy to work with the list. If I add mini bullet point ideas from my draft, that usually helps with the cohesion of the work.
  • do small sections - sitting down to do homework doesn’t mean it needs to be done in one session. You can schedule in maybe an hour each day for three days to work on the task. It gives you a bit of breathing room and a chance to come back with fresh eyes if it gets complicated.
  • stay focused for those sessions - recently I’ve been using my pomodoro session tracker printable in conjunction with my Forest app. It has been so good for keeping me on track and recording my progress. Even though I take breaks (both long and short), it keeps me coming back which is the key thing. I try to work in 20-30 minute sessions. Usually, I can hold my attention for that time then I do something else for a couple of minutes.
  • change the due date - this goes back to my first point but if you have a really bad habit of leaving this, perhaps tricking yourself could work! I know lots of people move their watches 5-10 minutes forward so they’re never late. In your planner, maybe write down the ‘due date’ the day before it is really due! 
  • set yourself up with a positive, encouraging work space - if you see your desk as a motivational space, you’ll be more encouraged to sit and do work. Put up some motivational quotes, have your most used stationery on display, organise an in and out tray, add a plant for some greenery.

Hope this helps! xx

anonymous asked:

In the wolf au, is Kirishima dating Denki, hanta, Mina, ect or is just kinda a wolf thing? Not that I mind either way I'm just super curious lol. Also it's so lovely, your work is so sweet.

Anon said: hello fran!! How are you? I hope you’re doing great!! sorry to bother you haha but I wanted to ask something!! So, in your wolf!kirishima comic it says that Denki’s pack and so is sero and mina, does that mean that they’re wolves shifters too?? And will we ever get to see them?? (also is there kamisero? Sorry my weak heart loves them yeet)

Ohohohohohohoho I’m glad you both asked about Kirishima’s pack cause boy do I have answers - okay first things first, Kirishima is only dating Bakugou and he’s the only wolf shifter in the pack (well, Mina is also a shifter, just not a wolf shifter)

In the AU pack dynamics are loosely based on how wolf packs work in the wild: in nature usually there’s an alpha couple (the “alpha male” and his mate) and the rest of the pack is made out of their pups! So by all means it’s just a family unit - once the pups are old enough to fend for themselves they leave the “pack” to form their own family - they’re social animals, so they need a pack to be happy and safe, and that reflects in the AU too. In this universe though it’s pretty normal for wolf shifters to date/marry non-shifters or shifters of other kinds, and when that happens the resulting kids might or might not have shifting abilities, which results in the process of forming a pack being a bit all over the place

In Kirishima’s case, he was born by two non-shifters who had shifter blood in them - as a wolf shifter his wolf side needed a pack to feel well (let’s say, other wolves to play with and learn from and so on) so as a kid he used to spend a lot of time with Fat and Amajiki (both wolf shifters!) who acted as a surrogate pack for the wolf in him - now he’s old enough to have his own pack tho! And while ideally that would mean he builds his own family with another wolf shifter, he ended up falling for Bakugou, who’s a non-shifter and a man, which means the family plan sorta went down the drain. His wolf still needs a pack to be happy tho, and that ended up meaning he latched onto Mina (a childhood friend) and Kaminari and Sero (Bakugou’s close friends) who by this point are as close to him as if they were actual family.

So in theory Kirishima’s wolf side sees the pack as himself and Bakugou as the alpha couple and Mina, Sero and Kaminari as the “pups” - practically though Kirishima’s human side has a perfect grasp on his wolf’s instincts, so all in all it ends up just being five pals loving each other like family, no power imbalance at all (…he does get clingy after his pack members spend time with people outside of the pack, but he doesn’t ever try to stop them from socializing outside of the group and cuddles and general close proximity are all he needs to make his wolf feel better!)

…as you can see, I spent more time on this AU than strictly necessary haha

Sooo 2nd time writing this - I’m sorry for being a piece of poo & procrastinating over for a week 😂 … anons pls forgive me & my sins!

OK so these photos were taken 16 days apart for the orange & black bodies and 18 days apart for ~ the dress ~ and there is 17.6lbs difference.

On 10th July I bought the dress on the left and challenged myself to look good in it and have the confidence to wear it out to a school reunion type thing on 28th.

With pathetic amounts of exercise and a bit of strength I was able to shift some lbs, but more importantly I WORE THE DRESS AND EVERYONE WAS SO COMPLIMENTARY 

Admittedly when I weighed at 176.0lbs I had eaten lots the previous night & so a good 3-4 melted away (and were water), but still 14-17.6lbs is not bad going.

Lots of u have been demanding answers and tricks of the trade, so I have compiled a list to help you on your way. 

 Pleeeeease remember I’m 1) Not a nutritionist 2) No expert in weight loss 3) That I was looking for a quick fix without starving myself 

• Drink 3-4L of water a day 

Seems like a really obvious Fitblr thing to say, but water is the holy grail to weight loss. It reduces water retention, aids to ur organs, & helps u flush away FAT. Up ur water intake by 1L for a week and you will see a noticeable difference on the scales


 • Cut waaaay down on ur carbs 

Preparing for backlash for this one. Remember I wanted a “quick fix” and never intended on keeping it up for too long. The carbs I had came only from vegetables, and any loose ones found in things such as gravy granules, mayo (🤤) or my “no carb” protein shakes.  Naturally you’re going to see a decent drop when you drop ur carb intake. Your body runs on carbohydrates, so when you remove these from your diet (once they have been used up), your body turns to fat as a source of energy. 


Don’t be scared of protein 

Your body NEEDS it to repair your muscles & tissues. Even if you’re a bit lazy with exercising (like meeee), your body needs protein to function!!!


• Don’t be scared of fat 

Fish, oil, avocado, egg yolks, CHEESE… its all good people, get it down ya 

Fats have the highest calorie to gram ratio out of the food groups, so when you’re cutting out carbs they’re crucial to meeting your intake. It’s also what your body will be running off of after the first 4-6 days, when it starts to produce Ketones, so making sure you consume enough is important 


 • Don’t stress urself out with exercising 

 I’ve said this from day 1. Carbs or no carbs. If you try to do a 180 flip on your mindset on exercise & ur eating habits, there is a very very good chance you will fall off the wagon hard. 

Take. It. Slowly. 

Which seems ironic for somebody who was after a quick fix lol

What I mean is, don’t be lazy - walk to places that you normally would drive to, walk ur pooch instead of sitting down and throwing the ball, run around with ur little family, opt for the stairs instead of the escalator at the mall - but don’t stress yourself out and feel like a failure if you don’t move from the sofa for a day. It’s all about changing your outlook on life, and you will 100000% find that if you are up and about and being productive that you won’t even think about snacking or carbs or eating shit.


OK I feel obliged to just POST THIS now.  I also think it’s worth while to mention that I ended my carb-free 18 days about 12 days ago, and I have in fact dropped a further 0.4lbs, which doesn’t seem like much in comparison - but I wanted to prove that once you go back to carbs it isn’t all downhill.  You need to be cautious and smart about it.

If you have any further Qs please just ask away!!! My inbox is always open.  I know a few of you will have concerns with this post and will probably point out the incorrect science that I’ve explained.  I’m a novice, but a novice that has lost 100lbs.  So if I can, literally anybody can.  It doesn’t take a nutritionist or a fitness fanatic to lose weight, and wanting a quick fix isn’t dumb.


It really can be this simple folks <3

You’re binge watching what’s on your DVR and enjoying a glass of wine…more like a bottle but whatever. Your first week at the bakery was pretty hectic. A lot to learn and a lot to accomplish, being wedding season and all.

And that damn Dean…what a pain in the ass. You could tell him the sky is blue and he’d fight with you saying it’s purple. Why are the good looking ones always crazy?

You hear a loud knock on your front door and you instantly groan. It better be someone good, you’re not happy getting up from your warm, comfortable couch. You assume it’s your annoying neighbor so you don’t bother with the peep hole, you just swing the door open.

Hi there! I don't know if you'll have anything to say aside from what you told that other person asking about building towns, but. I don't DM, but I have been interested in creating cities based off medieval history for D&D lately. However, I'm kinda at a roadblock when it comes to structuring that info. I tried to find a blank sheet or something but had no luck. How do you (or others) usually arrange information? Also, if I were to come up with something I liked, should I send it here?

Please feel free to send me ideas, your art, etc! I don’t post every idea I get, but I’ve gotten a lot of good ones I never would have thought of. 

I’m pretty unorganized tbh but this is what I do usually: [real vs example versions]

Lockston

Large population, human with some dwarfs.

Strong guard presence.

Typical, but at night everyone hurries home. Everyone thinks their family is cursed to be werewolves, and others will kill them. No one knows everyone else is also a werewolf.

Not close to other towns, no allies. Enemies with the nearby Drow settlement.

Beer n Booty: typical. Run by Ava. Sells endlessly empty mugs.

Sleeping Ugly: Expensive. Run by Burt. Complimentary breakfast, but it’s all weird fancy stuff.

Mixer’s Elixirs: Potions shop run by Mixer. Yes, that is his name. No, you cannot buy anything deadly. He sells perfume but insists on calling it potions.

Luthur. 42. Very hairy. The townsfolk are worried about him, he seems to be acting strange. He’s salivating at the sight of meat, has fleas, and is growing hair on his legs at an alarming rate. He is the first werewolf, slowly transforming into a full wolf. The rest of the village is soon to follow.

Why is Liam so underrated? :/ www(.)billboard(.)com/articles/columns/pop/7743445/one-direction-solo-albums-poll-vote

Hi friend,

I KNOW I have been sitting on this ask since forever but I’ll be honest, at first, I kept responding to this and then kept retracting and, repeat. The text always ended up in verbiage. Anyway, since you’ve sent me this link, it’s good to know that Liam’s been in the lead for quite a few days and currently I am not sure of who stands where since there is fluctuation, as there should be, but Liam’s definitely holding decent in the polls. 

Addressing the topic at hand, when I see people under-appreciating Liam even today, I go all

I’ve pondered a little over this, and I think the main reason Liam usually gets unfairly sidelined could be assigned to one and/or more of the following reasons:

1. Liam’s narrative. Right from the early days, Liam was pinned as the responsible one. For the record, I don’t know why it’s deemed as an undesirable trait because it is not. I always say this and I’ll say it again, Liam is truly magnificent because not only is he A+ in almost everything, he also makes me want to be a better version of myself. I honestly wish I had these inherent leadership traits that Liam possesses. Do you know how often my lecturers stress the importance of leadership values and responsible behavior in the real world? That Liam is naturally capable of maneuvering stressful situations and making them bearable, not only for the boys but also the fans, by and large, is a very very admirable attribute. Like, even in his interview with Rollacoaster, that quote about him taking over because he wanted the other boys to have the moment? WHEN WILL YOUR FAVE EVER, LIKE LITERALLY? 

However, somehow he even got tagged as boring and dumb along the way – neither of which holds true, lmao. People judge Liam’s intellect and wisdom on the basis of his typing style on Twitter, even as they keysmash on tumblr to express excitement? Liam has been handling all the paperwork and business obligations for a while now. Liam ALSO has been co-writing the songs with Louis. Liam’s interviews with 1D have always been funny and entertaining. Liam has excellent presence of mind and is quite spontaneous as was obvious during 1DDay. He undoubtedly hosted the show sooo well. I mean, the list is endless.

Liam’s humour is so sassy, snarky and sometimes the driest, and I love it? He also oscillates between being extremely dorky and throwing incisive shade, haha. I dunno how it gets over the heads of so many, ahem, smart fans. Then again, that the beauty. Imagine getting playfully dragged by Liam… AAAH! (whichever drag you thought of is the correct answer)

2. Liam’s position in the band, musically. Now, I know this is a continual debate and obviously everyone is going to fight on who is the best off 1D, and obviously everyone would choose their fave, but I’m willing to fight anyone who dares call Liam’s voice “boring” or any of the illogical things they come up with. I bet you these are the very people who go all 2+2 = Europe, I mean???

Liam has always been the fulcrum of the band. There is no questioning one’s choice and likes and preferences but if you describe Liam as someone who doesn’t have superior talent, my dude, my bro, my mate…. Carry on with the delusions, I guess. 

Liam’s voice is a treasure, Liam is one of the strongest yet one of the most underrated Baritones in music today. That has a lot to do with his branding whilst in 1D. Now, in no means am I an expert and I don’t claim to be one either, but it hardly takes rocket science to discern that One Direction’s sound was structured around everyone’s voices but Liam’s, or at best, the least around him. I once read a post and I wish I could find it so I’d link it here. It essentially points out how it is worth considering that we never got to listen to Liam hit the same notes as he did during his second audition at the X Factor. Hmm, wonder why….. 

There’s been a lot of fuckery involving the solo duration, with Liam’s verses regressing in duration, but that’s not all. Liam had less time on melodies and more on harmonies (specifically backing harmonies) and that’s probably another reason as to why if you listen to the songs clearly, Liam is doing a lot – in most of the songs – but you hardly ever register that because that’s exactly what the intent is: to render his backing harmonies as backing harmonies. There’s hardly any emphasis on his net contribution to every track. 

Then there’s this huge issue with the fandom and the songwriting and crediting all of the Lilo songs to Louis. I get that Liam himself acknowledges Louis as a very creative co-songwriter and I am not taking that away from our Tommo, never. But all these lines that the fandom cry and fond over and sing praises for? What if those were created by Liam and not Louis? This fandom is so repulsive, lmao. 

Coming back to 1D’s production, how often do you come across pop artists who sound better live than they do on edited polished pieces of recorded studio version? I hardly do. I personally believe Liam has that beautiful voice that no studio recorded version could do absolute justice to and yes, the real sparks of goosebumps prickle your skin fully when you listen to Liam live, yet there’s something deeply wrong if Liam hits all those brilliant notes by improvising on stage and yet hardly gets the chance to do it on the album. I think this is why I personally cherish Never Enough, it’s the closest we’ve come, really. 

3. The fandom and the various sects. There is no denying that there is abject inequality with the way the boys are treated within the fandom, by their so called fans, and this reflects in the way the media handles the boys, too.

I distinctly recall when a year back when I was just venturing into the fandom, I was hardly what you’d call a fan. I saw the BBMA video where Liam dedicates the award to Zayn, the comments were inundated on how Liam didn’t have to be “Extra” and the others went on and on about how all of 1D are so sweet, thanking Zayn and all. I posted a comment chiding the fans because, honestly, what even? NOT ALL BOYS, ONLY LIAM. Smh.

The sooner people stop this imbalance wherein they pounce on Liam for every slip up and credit all the boys for something wonderful that Liam independently is responsible for, the better, tbh. I love all 5, but no, some great things are all Liam’s doing and that needs to be highlighted, tbh.

There’s also probably something to do with how Liam is always expressing his happiness and concern so openly that gets the fans to react the way they do, I suppose? I don’t know how valid a reason this is with how people have been absolutely repugnant, but that’s also something, I guess.

Liam Payne is one of my most favourite people in the Universe and I know I hardly know him, but I think at the core of it, Liam’s true earnest self emanates in specks and flashes and if you’ve managed to capture that, you’d know Liam is a gem. 

P.S. This did end up in absolute verbiage, I am sorry…..

“Come along, (Y/N)!” The Doctor called excitedly, tugging you along.

“Alright, alright” You laughed. “Geez, it’s my birthday and you’re the hyper one” You shook your head.

“I just want to make it cool for you” He insisted with a pout.

“It will be cool” You assured him. “I know it will be”

“Good, now come on, we’re almost there” The Doctor gave your hand another tug as you reached a rather fancy restaurant. You looked around in awe at the high ceilings that held not lights, but glowing stars and galaxies. It was certainly a different sight to the two suns outside. The place seemed to stretch on for miles and you weren’t fully sure you could see the back. The tables looked to be grown out of the ground the same as the roof supports were. You didn’t even notice the blue-skinned hostess leading you to a table until the Doctor began to lead you along, too caught up in admiring the place. The woman placed the menus down and gave the two of you a smile before leaving you be.

The Doctor pulled your seat out for you and you smiled and blushed slightly as sat down and let him push it in for you. It was only when he sat down across from you did you notice his incredibly smug smile.

“Cool?” He asked coyly. You laughed.

“Yeah, really cool” You agreed, getting a grin from him in return. You browsed your menu for a longer than you’d ever done, asking the Doctor what every item was. He was more than happy to explain, giving recommendations based on what he knew you liked from both Earth and intergalactic foods you’d tried. The meal was rather lovely and you found yourself quite enjoying the strange-looking substance that the Doctor convinced you to order. It was after desert that you began to feel rather strange. Like nothing you’d ever felt before. Like you’d eaten something that had gone bad but accompanied with a vague tingling all over your body.

“Are you alright (Y/N)?” The Doctor asked in a concerned tone, noticing your frown.

“Yeah… just feel a little off” You admitted. “Probably just not used to the food. I’m just gonna go to the bathroom” You told him. He nodded as you stood and headed to the closest bathroom. He waited patiently for five minutes and thirty-four seconds, knowing that human females sometimes took a lot of time in the bathroom. But he’d had so much else ready to show you. It was still your birthday and he had a mental list of things to do for you.

All those things disappeared from his mind though when he heard a scream. The Doctor jumped up immediately and ran towards the source without hesitation. People were standing and looking around all over the room, some also running towards the sound. His hearts skipped a beat when he noticed there was a crowd just outside the women’s bathroom. But the voice was so much younger, it couldn’t have been you… could it? He pushed his way to the front, stopping in shock at the sight he found when he got there.

The scream had come from a little girl who looked maybe four. She had silent tears streaming down her face and looked terrified at the number of adults surrounding her. She babbled something out, seeming to get frustrated as she tried to pronounce her words correctly, but no one understood what she was saying. The Doctor knew in any situation like this you’d be the one trying to get down to the girl’s level and seem less scary so you could ask her what was wrong. But there was no one beside the young girl. In fact, she screamed every time someone came near her. Then there was something else very obviously wrong. The girl wasn’t wearing any clothes, instead being draped in clothes far too big for her. Now the fact that she seemed to have your clothes held tight in her fists didn’t seem like much, until he noticed that the little girl looked just like you.

The child scanned the crowd with a small wail until her eyes landed on the Doctor. The wet (E/C) orbs widened as she found him and she held her hands out to him immediately.

“Dac-tah!” The child squealed, waving her arms around until he moved forward to kneel down in front of the girl.

“(Y/N)?” He asked hesitantly. The child gave a small nod, sniffing away her tears. There was no mistake, this child was you. And she was about to start crying again. The Doctor flailed a moment, unsure what to do in response to the tiny crumpled face and wobbly lip. He decided to pick you up, hoping that you would be calmer if he was closer to you. It seemed to work when adult-you was scared, and the four-year-old you shouldn’t be any different, right? He shushed you softly, bouncing you up and down like he’d done once before with his own children. The crowd was dispersing now, content that he was your caretaker and had found you alright. Though some were still shooting the two of you worried or sympathetic glances.

The Doctor looked down at you as you quietened, sniffing slightly.

“Now what could have caused this?” he wondered out loud. You blinked up at him, tilting your tiny head slightly. He found himself wondering why he’d not thought little you would be so cute. You seemed to realize something and started tugging on his collar, the closest piece of clothing in reach. You were babbling quickly and unintelligibly. He blinked at you, surprised. He could speak baby but this was the part he had trouble with. The point where children stop speaking baby and start speaking unintelligible adult languages.

“I- I don’t…” He shook his head slightly, making you lean forward and rest your head on his shoulder with a sigh, something he knew always meant you were becoming frustrated. You sat up suddenly, seeming to have some kind of idea. You shifted in his arms so he held you higher and managed to reach up to place a tiny hand over his cheek. He realized what you were doing, reading your surface thoughts with a frown until he realized exactly what had happened. The food.

The Doctor’s mind was hard to get into if he didn’t want you in there, and you knew he’d be keeping you out especially in your small form. But that didn’t mean you couldn’t feel his more prominent emotions. So when every thought you could reach darkened with anger you pulled back with a small squeak of surprise, nearly causing him to drop you. He steadied you quickly, keeping you from falling as he sighed.

“Alright, I guess we need to find some way to fix you then” He conceded. You gave a curt nod, babbling something along the lines of ‘you’d better hope so Spaceman’. With that, you let yourself fall forward on the Doctor’s chest with a soft thud and were out like a light. He blinked at you in surprise, knowing immediately you had fallen asleep. He let out a breath of relief, knowing for sure, especially with your personality and what he had heard of child you, that he’d be able to cure you a lot quicker if you were sleeping. Maybe, just maybe, you might sleep the whole time.


If only he could be so lucky.

Turns out, you never slept long. It was only an hour later when you woke up. By then he had managed to get you back to the Tardis and in bed in a modified version of your room. Same walls and bed but it was filled with toys and coloring books instead of your collection of alien artifacts and everything else you owned. He knew you wouldn’t be happy if you got older again and had broken half the things in your room.

The Doctor was in the library trying to figure out what would reverse the process when there was a crash from the other side of the room. He dropped the books in his hands and rasher over to find out what had happened. He frowned slightly when he found a pile of books had fallen off the shelf. He gathered them together and put them all back up on the shelf just as another crash caught his attention further back. He frowned again, quickly finding that another shelf was losing its books. He glanced around, confused until he saw you disappearing around one of the shelves from the corner of his eye.

The Doctor sighed, shaking his head as he moved silently around the other end of the shelf you were hiding behind. You were at the other end of the shelf facing away from him. The tiny pyjamas the Tardis had provided for him to dress you in were (F/C) with the pants dragging around your ankles and the sleeves hanging slightly off your wrists. After a moment you peeked around the corner, glancing around for the Doctor, who you’d thought was still on the other side. You turned back and squealed in surprise to find the man you were looking for right behind you. He kneeled down in front of you and placed both hands over your shoulders so you couldn’t run off just yet.

“I thought you were sleeping” The Doctor chastised gently.

“Sleepin’ is boring!” You told him.

“I’ve been telling you this for years and now you agree with me?” He asked in disbelief.

“Sleepin’ is boring” You repeated with a grin. “Les’ go somewhere cool”

“Afraid we can’t (Y/N)” He told you, hesitating slightly at your sudden pout. He gave no indication it changed anything however, as he knew you’d never let it go if you thought you were close to breaking him in any way. “Not with you as little as you are. You’ll get yourself hurt”

“But Doc-tah I’m bored” You whined, pouting at him once again. He frowned at your sad expression but shook his head again all the same.

“You can’t leave the Tardis” He declared firmly. “But your room is full of toys and I’m sure Sex- uh, the Tardis could put a movie on or something”

“Will you watch a movie with me Doc-tah?” You asked hopefully. The Doctor sighed again.

“(Y/N), I’m trying to work on fixing you right now” He tried to reason. “If you could just…”

“No!” You complained adamantly. “No fix! Watch movie!” The Doctor’s gaze fixed on a spot over your shoulder on the wall, as if he didn’t want to look you in the eye. You grinned, knowing that this was something he tried with grown up you. Whenever you pulled out the puppy-dog eyes he was instantly moments away from cracking and he seemed to think not looking at you would help. It never did. His eyes flickered back to you and you amped up your pleading pout.

“Alright, alright” He sighed, standing. “We’ll watch one movie together, then I’ll get back to work and you can play with something the Tardis can set up for you” You jumped up and down a moment, giggling happily with a few loud ‘yay’s, not missing the Doctor’s fond smile.

“But you gotta catch me first” You decided, running over to where he had his books lain out. He frowned suddenly as he turned to watch you.

“What?” He frowned, looking like he’d just realized you weren’t the angel you could pretend to be.

“You heard me! Catch me if you can!” With that, you turned and took off out the library door and down the hall. The Doctor followed immediately calling after you in fear that you’d get lost. You simply giggled, turning down another hall.

“(Y/N)! Hold on! Ow!”

You paused with a small frown, peeking back around the corner. The Doctor was currently stumbling about with a hand on his head, muttering to himself. You couldn’t help but giggle when you realised what had happened. He ran into the wall again. He turned quickly when he heard you laughing, spotting you just around the corner.

“Ha!” He cried, pointing to you like his finding you was a great accomplishment.

“Doc-tah, you know that wall has always been there. I don’t know why you have so much trouble with it” You told him in your best impression of your sarcastic, adult self. He paused before floundering a bit, eventually settling with glaring at you, which only made you giggle again to annoy him further.

“That’s it, you” He announced, scooping you up. You frowned, swinging your legs out in an effort to be put down. He flailed a moment and you thought he might drop you. On one hand, that was what you wanted, on the other hand, the Doctor was quite tall… You promptly ceased kicking but that threw him off almost as much as before. You grabbed at his jacket securely, huffing in annoyance.

“You’re gonna drop me” You complained.

“I would not” He shot back, staring down at you like he was offended.

“This is why I never let you hold that baby your friend had when we visited last week” You told him.

“Oh stop it” He huffed. “I can’t deal with this when you’re an adult. I don’t need to be sassed by a four-year-old”

“Yes you do” You shot back childishly, poking your tongue out for good measure. He stuck out his tongue back at you before placing you back down. The Doctor had managed to get you into another room that greatly resembled a large theatre room. You gaped at the huge screen a moment before looking back up at him.

“Come on then, movie, then you let me alone to work, deal?” He asked you, taking your hand to sit you down in one of the long rows of seats.

“Deal!” You agreed excitedly, jumping up. “Thank you Doc-tah!” You stood up on your seat to reach him properly as he sat beside you, wrapping small arms around his neck in the biggest hug you could currently manage. He chuckled and patted your back lightly in return.

“Your welcome (Y/N)” He responded as you sat back down. You grinned up at him and he laughed at the tiny curl that fell into your eyes. He’d never much thought about his companions as kids. But he knew he was going to have a good amount of trouble with you before you grew up again. All the same, should be good fun. He wrapped and arm over your small shoulders to pull you to his side as you called out a movie idea to the Tardis and the screen started up. Yeah, this could be fun.

End of my first year watching K dramas!

So last February is when I started watching korean dramas and since then it has just been a crazy snowball effect. I was trying to learn anything and everything possible about the hallyu wave and that is what this blog has kind of turned into. I just wanted to run down the list of dramas that I saw and in what order and what my general reactions to them were. 

Since I am such a newb with korean entertainment, I feel like I watched a lot of the more popular well known dramas so I had a foundation to start building on. (like what actor’s/actress’ I enjoy the most, what genre ect ect.) I have also learned the entire korean alphabet and have been working on vocabulary as well. When I think about it, I have learned a lot and it hasn’t even been an entire year yet! 

So here is my list.

First k drama ever was in last feb.

1. My Love From The Star 6/10

I was browsing on hulu one day and saw the picture for it of the lead actress and thought she was really pretty. I thought it might have been a japanese tv show so I had clicked on the description and found the synopsis interesting. After watching the first five minutes, I realized they were not speaking in japanese, it was korean! I remember physically pushing pause and thinking to myself about what I knew about korea. Sadly, the only thing I could think of was the division between north and south and that in elementary school I have a friend who was korean and that was about it. 

So I can’t say I truly got fully addicted to My Love From the Star but it was really entertaining. Stuff that really stood out for me that kept me watching was the fashion, how funny the lead actress was and wanting to know about the murder case. It’s funny cause a lot of kdramas have romantic plot lines as I have come to fully understand but in this one, I understood that it was supposed to be in the forefront but I wasn’t feeling it. I didn’t think the chemistry was really there and I didn’t find anything about them that I could relate to. (However I did like the kiss scene at the end.)

Another thing that stood out was the fact that it was not over sexualized like many television shows in western culture. I wasn’t fully sold, but I found myself wanting more. 

2. Boys Over Flowers 8/10

Alright. This is where my obsession started. After watching the first few episodes I was interested because of Jan Di. I LOOOVVVEEEDDD her character, she was cute and spunky and I wanted to see her stand up to the F4. I can’t say I was completely hooked in the beginning. It was a gradual process. I really hated Jun Pyo and I didn’t see how attractive Lee Min Ho was with his nasty attitude in the beginning. (did I have a lot to learn about the rich chaebol characters or what? hahaha) After seeing his softer side and how he really cared about Jan Di made me fall in love and then from that point onward I was appreciating every single damn scene with Lee Min Ho in it. 

Around this time I had a really bad cyst and was bed ridden for a couple days while it drained, so what did I do? I stayed in bed and watched the entire series in two days! And I have no regrets. I had so many different emotions, I was laughing, crying, yelling at the screen because of stupid mistakes the characters made. Some scenes were just utterly ridiculous but let’s be honest, I was eating that shit up. I enjoyed every moment of Boys Over Flowers the first time I watched it. It was a guilty pleasure.

Note: I have watched many episodes from other dramas like Surplus Princess, to the beautiful you, liar game ect but I did not list them here because I have not finished watching them.

3. Personal Taste 6/10

So after Boys Over Flowers ended and reality set in that I couldn’t look at Lee Min Ho’s beautiful face anymore, I freaked out a little and started doing research on all of the dramas he had been in. Faith and Citty Hunter seemed really interesting but I felt like I was still so new at the kdrama thing, I needed something more light hearted and easy to follow. 

Watching Personal Taste was an awesome experience. It was nice to see Lee Min Ho in a more mature role and I thought Son Yi Jin was cute in this one. The entire time I watched it I was wishing I could live in a house with that kind of architecture.

Although I found Personal Taste enjoyable, I was getting the same feelings that I did watching Boys Over Flowers! I was on a hunt to find something similar.

3. Playful Kiss 5.5/10

While doing my kdrama research a lot of people were recommending this one so I figured why not? It had Kim Hyun Joong in it and he played Ji Hoo in Boys Over Flowers. Let’s see him get the girl this time, I figured. 

This….drama…..uhhh, guys where do I even begin? I wanted to absolutely hate it with a fiery passion but I didn’t because I liked almost all of the characters. The lead girl was soooo co dependent and obsessed with Hyun Joong’s character and I hated it! There was a second male lead in this one that loved her. (I think his name is Lee Tae Sung) And he was sooo fine! Ahhh I loved him. Kim Hyun Joong’s character treated her like absolute crap. And not the way Jun Pyo did to Jan Di. Like he seriously treated her like crap and she was completely okay with it. Pretty much I gritted my teeth and watched it for Lee Tae Sung and the lead girl’s friends. (they were funny!)

4. Faith The Great Doctor 7/10

So after the terrible disappointment with Playful Kiss I figured, fuck it I need Lee Min Ho in my life so I put on Faith. I really enjoyed all of Faith and this is one where I watched multiple episodes in one sitting. The entire progression with the war went on a little too slow for my liking but I did enjoy Lee Min Ho’s character as Choi Young. I loved the overall story and the ending was one of my favorite endings I have seen in a kdrama to date. I should also make note this is when I was exposed to actor Philip Lee I think his name is and I was happy when I saw him in Secret Garden.

Oh, one last thing, my boyfriend actually was interested in this one. All of the other ones he rolled his eyes at haha. 

5. The Heirs 5.5/10

So at this point I was still super in love with Lee Min Ho and there was a new drama that was buzzing all over drama land called The Heirs. Pretty much same plot line as Boys Over Flowers, I was excited! 

I have come to realize that certain dramas (The Heirs, My Love From The Star) are so over rated and they aren’t even that great. Although I did enjoy certain pieces of Heirs (Kim Woo Bin, the mute mom, the relationships between the mothers ect) I really didn’t like how feminine they made Lee Min Ho’s character. Like…after watching this I didn’t find him that attractive. Actually, after watching The Heirs I took a break from watching kdramas because I was so disappointed. I mean at that point I was like, what other dramas am I going to watch? Lee Min Ho isn’t in them…

6. Coffee Prince 10/10

The Gods in heaven sent Coffee Prince to me. And Gong Yoo!!! So after my disappointment with Lee Min Ho in Heirs, it was so nice to watch a new drama and actually find a male lead attractive. The entire story was executed perfectly and the chemistry between Gong Yoo and Yoon Eun Hye is so amazing, they go from being best friends to lovers. This drama especially touched me because it isn’t the typical, “seperate the two and give them heartache.” scenario. The music wasn’t over played and annoying, I mean seriously, everything was perfect in my book. This is still my favorite drama to date.

7. Secret Garden 7/10

For the most part I found Secret Garden enjoyable. This is where I was introduced to Hyun Bin who I find to be an exceptional actor. The only reason I am not super crazy about this one is the main actress unfortunantely is not up to par with Hyun Bin’s acting skills. At least for me, it was REALLY obvious Hyun Bin had committed to his role 100% and she was somewhere in the 72% range.  

8. City Hunter 9.5/10

After finally getting over my disappointment with Heirs, I decided it was time to watch City Hunter. To my surprise I found it on Netflix so I didn’t have to watch it on my computer! I watched it on my PS3 and my boyfriend actually joined me in watching it. He never thought he would get used to the subtitles but he did because he got into the story along with me. The entire thing was enjoyable for both of us and I am really glad I got to have that experience with my boyfriend. So ladies! If you like watching kdramas and have a boyfriend, I highly recommend watching City Hunter with him lol. 

9. My Name is Kim Sam Soon 8/10

I have heard this is the mother of all Kdramas so why wouldn’t I want to watch it?! I have to say I absolutely loved the entire drama, one of the funniest ones I have seen. Kim Sun Ah’s acting really stood out for me so she instantly became a favorite and of course Hyun Bin was awesome. One of my favorite scenes is the piano scene ;)

10. Scent of a Woman 9.5/10

So I decided to watch this one because of Kim Sun Ah and lemme tell you…you’re going to need some tissues lol! For some reason I found this one listed as a romantic comedy…it is not! This is a melodrama if I ever did see one. It is about dealing with cancer and death so it is a serious subject. I kept thinking by the end she was going to me miraculously healed and if that was the case I was going to hate the whole thing but that is not what happened. It was much more realistic so this is one of my favorite kdrama endings along with Faith. 

11. Rooftop Prince 10/10

This I believe is the only other drama besides coffee prince that I give a 10/10 to. I loved the story, the directing, writing, acting and everything about it. Sometimes I myself can get a little spoiled and I saw myself in the Crown Prince which made me laugh. When he gets mad and yells it feels like I am looking at a male version of myself. This is a must watch for EVERYONE!

12. Goong 7/10

And now I end 2014 off with Goong. I am almost done watching it! I have to say that I really do enjoy it but it is sooooo slow right now! I am on episode 19 and I am almost 10% positive they could have made this show shorter. I am finding myself dozing off every time the elders are having a conversation. All their conversations are almost always the same. But I have to say that I do love Yoon Eun Hye in this drama. 

After I finish Goong I will probably try and finish some dramas I am almost done with (surplus princess and liar game mainly) 

I feel very good with this year of discovering the hallyu wave and I can’t wait for next year! 

So… this feels really, really overwhelming for me after writing Janna for years, under different names with a lot of development, and I never thought that this OC of mine would actually.. ending up even more popular than the canon male characters I used to write? It really means a lot to me, after having friends tell me years ago they just don’t care to hear about my OC, and I still often wonder whether people do care and… I am so grateful for all of you. For the people sending memes, liking and reblogging posts, the people talking ooc to me, the people I thread with - I have been on this blog for longer than I managed to keep any other, and there are many people who already left behind their blogs, people I do miss, but there are also so many new friends I made along the way so… Here, if you want to see a small part of the people who make my stay here so great… Under the cut with absolutely no claims to being complete because I ALWAYS forget people!

Keep reading

anonymous asked:

Hello! Do you know any friends to lovers fic's? Thank you love your blog!

Hi! 

First off, thank you so much, lovely ♥♥♥

Now, about your request… friends to lovers is such a famous trope/AU and I’d say it’s literally a part of like half of the fics we rec here, but for some reason we’ve never been asked to make a general list like this!

Sooo, here are a few of my favorites that I highly recommend :)

ONESHOTS:

  • you’re the shit and i’m knee-deep in it by cosetties
    Summary: After Even has already rejected him once, after Isak is aware of Even’s reputation for meaningless one-night stands, the last thing Isak should be doing is sleeping with the guy. But it keeps happening, and there’s no way Isak is getting out of this with his heart intact. 

  • friends don’t treat me like you do by hippopotamus
    Summary: Isak’s going to humiliate himself in front of Even’s friends because he has no idea how to be - pretend to be - in a relationship. What is Even expecting him to do? Hold his hand? Kiss him? Hold eye contact with him for more than two seconds? Isak can’t do any of that. And he also can’t sleep.

  • loving you to sleep by highpraises
    Summary: Even and Isak cuddle a lot, and love each other a whole lot.

  • thought i had you in the palm of my hand that night by hippopotamus
    Summary: They’re roommates, and they don’t get on at all. Until they do, at which point Even decides to develop a useless crush.

  • This Means Nothing to Me by cuteandtwisted
    Summary: “Do you still think love is bullshit?” Isak asked one night with his head lying on Even’s lap, both of them sprawled on their couch. It had taken five joints and three beers for his head to end up there. He was a bit high and he just wanted to check. He just wanted to know. “I’m not so sure anymore,” said Even. Or Isak and Even are friends and roommates who don’t believe in love anymore (after they both get dumped by other people) until they do.

  • cracks in our foundation by kittpurrson
    Summary: “You know, like a thousand years ago, men used to wear makeup?” Even asks, as Isak gapes at himself. He can’t really explain how strange it is to see himself like this.

  • when i’m close to you (we blend into my favourite colour) by Behindthecities
    Summary: In which Isak and Even are boy-friends with a hyphen in the middle. Or the the 5 times Isak forgets that he’s not dating Even and the 1 time he does something about it.

  • with you i’m in warm water by tarjeiandhenrik
    Summary: Even might’ve gotten himself into a situation where he has to pretend to be in love with Isak. It wouldn’t be so difficult if he hadn’t been trying to pretend like he wasn’t in love with him for years.

  • I’m Always Here by nofeartina
    Summary: “Did you know that Even is working this summer? At that pool at the Plaza?” Jonas says. Isak actually sits up in excitement at this. “Fuck yeah!” Oh, a pool. Actual water they could go swimming in and cool down. And also, Even.

  • the region of the summer stars by thekardemomme
    Summary: Someone keeps sending Isak flower bouquets and Even happens to work in a flower shop.

  • Don’t you see what you are finding? by kaleidxscope
    Summary: This is Heaven in hiding. Or, three times Isak gets frustated by Even and one he makes a move.

CHAPTERED:

  • Get Rid of Her by cuteandtwisted
    Summary: “Even was angry and Emma was tugging at Isak’s sleeve demanding attention. Even had never been angry at him before, not even when he spoke recklessly of his mother’s mental health, or when he threw up on the older boy’s bed that one night he got too drunk and couldn’t make it home.” Or: Even still transfers to Nissen in his third year, but Isak and Even get introduced through their parents. * FriendsToLovers AU in which Isak calls Even ‘bro’ a couple of times and is forced to watch old-ish movies with him in hipster movie theaters.

  • Boys by AnonymousWriter719
    Summary: He’s currently responsible for the minor cardiac arrhythmia Isak is experiencing. Who really goes around looking like that, all tall and pale with their hair all swept up into an effortless James Dean-style quiff and their plump lips stretched into a ridiculous, beaming smile? That certainly wasn’t an accident. One could even call it sabotage, distracting his teammates with all that radiance. And in the summer, too, when the sun is positioned just right to glint off his blond hair and his blue eyes and just blind everyone. Yes. That’s exactly what happened; Isak is simply undergoing temporary blindness, but he resolutely pushes past it by glaring at his shoes and pretending he never saw this boy at all. 

  • Don’t Hold Your Breath by bechvaltersen
    Summary: Isak hates how he feels about Even, knows it could possibly ruin his friendship forever if he was to ever find out. But he doesn’t ever wonder, what if Even feels the same?

  • take me to the stars by iriswests
    Summary: Isak thinks Even is pretentious and impractical. Even thinks Isak is arrogant and uptight. They’re not each other’s biggest fans, even if they do happen to have spectacular sex on a very, very drunken night. And Isak doesn’t mean to do it again, but he does, anyway, so now they’re establishing ground rules and deciding that maybe they can keep doing this, no strings attached, no commitments, no feelings, and, most importantly, no need to stop disliking each other.And then it’s not quite that simple anymore.

  • Guess he wants to play (a love game) by diamondjacket
    Summary: He’s reverted to his previous task of lacing up his shoes when Even walks through the locker room door, practice bag slung over his shoulder and a heartbreakingly weary look on his face. By all accounts, he looks like shit. Doesn’t stop Isak from wanting to climb him like a fucking oak tree, unfortunately. * Or: A professional tennis AU.

  • Therefore I Am by smokeshop
    Summary: The one thing Isak wants is to move on from his high school mistakes. Even spends his time pining after a boy who will never like him back. The last thing either of them expect is to wind up in bed together, but that’s exactly what happens.

  • I am Yours and You are Mine by edvorahbee
    Summary: Isak’s starting his second year at Nissen, his friends, Jonas, Mahdi and Even, are back from their summer holidays, everything is completely normal. Except. Even’s got himself a new girlfriend. Isak doesn’t know how to deal with these newborn feelings he seems to be having for Even (a boy!). They’re both pining and idiots.

  • Boy with a Basket of Fruit by Fxckxxp
    Summary: Isak is a third-year architecture student studying abroad in Rome, Italy when he meets Even—a triple major and a triple threat. He’s handsome. He’s smart. And he’s charming as hell with the right amount of weird mixed in. Isak’s intrigued, but he doesn’t want to like him—he actually came to Rome to quite literally run away from his relationship problems back home. But the heart wants what the heart wants, even if Isak attempts to ignore it. He tries to listen to the universe. It’s throwing all the signs to just stay away right in his face, but for some reason, it’s also throwing him right into Even’s arms at every turn. So he tortures himself. He doesn’t make a move. They can be just friends, after all. Until they can’t.

  • Always been yours by candysky
    Summary: Isak and Even are best friends and nothing more. They are also oblivious fools who haven’t realized that they’re in love. Or 3 times their friends notice just how in love Isak and Even are and the one time they take it upon themselves to get them together.

I didn’t include Childhood Friends AUs, but you can check out my full masterpost of those right here!

@an-empty-skyy

things about kate: she was my first friend on tumblr. she’s helped me through some really awful days. she’s smart, hilarious, and so so supportive. she’s my bean. our timezones don’t line up so whenever we talk it’s normally while i’m in history (my least favorite class) and it gives me something better to do than learn about napoleon. her cats are the bomb dot com. she’s so strong and i look up to her a lot. kate can deal with any shit that life throws at her. she’s loved, valued, and super important to me.

anon

it might not feel like it, but you deserve whatever happiness this world has to offer for you, and i haven’t mastered the art of putting my feelings into words well enough to explain why I think so. you’re really cool, and really nice, and I hope you find the happiness the world might have hidden away from you. I believe you’re strong enough to find it.

@dundelions

i never thought i would meet someone like you, in fact i never thought i would even get a friend here so i don’t know how i got so lucky with you. i know that things haven’t been so great for you lately and i wish i could be there to hug you and i know that i already owe you like three hugs but here’s another one. i love and appreciate you so much, you are always there for me and i mean ALWAYS. i remember when we had just started talking and i was on this weird meeting with all these awkward teenagers so i messaged you and you responded like two seconds later with ‘TALK TO ME HUN’ and i mean if that isn’t love then i don’t know what is. you are the most thoughtful person i know and you are always here for me even in my darkest hours so thank you. thank you for keeping me alive because without you i wouldn’t be here, thank you for not giving up on me, thank you for being SO excited each time i post a selfie because it’s just he sweetest. thank you for being a part of my life. i love you so much so don’t you EVER forget that okay??

@dork-with-a-uke

@dontcryxcraft

Kate is a beautiful person inside and outside. She’s always kind to everyone no matter what. She never fails to cheer me up. She always reblogs ,,please take care of yourself" ,,you are valid" kind of posts. Her embroidery art is absolutely amazing. She has a really good taste in music. She often sends me and her friends super kind asks on Tumblr. She loves dogs and cats. She’s sooo pretty. She plays ukulele. When I got 50 followers on Tumblr she wrote a post telling people that they should follow me. She’s an absolute angel. She’s one of the best people I’ve ever met. I’ll be forever thankful because I found her. I’m so lucky to be her friend. I love her so much. 💜🌹

@soljua

(i translated/combined her thoughts on kate, so i’m taking all responsibility should this sound weird/wrong)

- positivity, she reblogs and posts so many nice, positive things that i see on my dash and she’s so easy to talk to, on anon or not (cause she’ll always reply) and her blog is very chill and feels like a safe space, it has a very specific kind of vibe to it

@stillstreetjoshua

Kate, you’re an extraordinary human. You make me smile a ton and bring such a fantastic and joyful energy. Life can be a real pain but I hope you know we are all cheering you on. Even on your worst days. Sadness is temporary, even when it lingers much too long. I’m always here for you. You’re not alone. Life is going to give you fantastic things I know it. I’m sending you so much love and support. Never forget how wonderful you are and how loved you are! 👽💜🌻

@sannysky

Kate, you are one of the kindest people I have the pleasure to know. Your existence, your presence matters so much because you keep on touching and impacting lives in a positive way. I could go on and on about how much positive things I’ve heard about you, how many people have wanted to take part in this because they have recognized how good you truly are. 

You are the first stars blinking in the  haze of a peachy, golden sunset over a city after a long day. You are the stars in the night sky, you are Truce, the song everyone should listen to when they feel alone in their darkest of nights. 

People gravitate towards that kind of light and I hope that you know, you are so so much appreciated. I hope you know today’s only transitory on our way to the future, no matter what kind of day you have had and I hope you know that there will be a time when you’ll feel content and whole and happy. You are not confined by your 'now’, by your negative thoughts no matter how much they claim otherwise, you are not your sadness, You are an amazing human being with an immense interest in music, sunsets, plants and animals and you are surrounded by so many people who love you and truly care about you. You are loved by me and by all of these people who precede me in this post.  You are not alone, friend.

4x04 Personal Highlights

So I know that there has been a lot of negativity surrounding this past episode, but I would like to point out that it was far from being all bad and I would say it was a hell of a lot better than episode four from LAST season (aka. my least favourite episode of this show, ever) there was actually some good shit buried in this episode that I would like to address.

Never too much positivity, right fam?

Okay, I’ll get to it.

1. “Bellamy should be back by now.”

I mean, it’s self-explanatory. Even the C/exa queen is writing us some Bellarke shit .. hmm, I wonder why? Maybe cause she has to? Maybe cause Bellarke is becoming canon? Huh, weird.

2. Monty being a total babe and trying to comfort Clarke

It only serves to make the absence of his name on The List that much more painful, but I love seeing Monty trying to cheer Clarke up. He’s such a beacon of light. @the-ships-to-rule-them-all and @abazethe100 talked on their podcast about how its not just Monty’s brain and skills that make him invaluable, but who he is at his core - a source of optimism and support. He holds people together. I thought it was worth mentioning because @theskyboxpodcast is always good, but I especially loved that bit.

3. Devon’s acting

The writers truly could not have picked a better actor to play Jasper. He kills it, over and over and over again. Devon is the perfect mix of humour and tragedy that makes Jasper so heartbreaking and unique. He brings life to this character in a way that few actors could. That scene in the rain perfectly demonstrates this.

(UNRELATED: I’d love to see how Jaha was managing out on that lake when he heard about the acid fog. The possibilities are never-endingly humourous.)

4. Kane calling out Octavia

This scene was soooo validating because its the first time that Octavia’s actions have TRULY been called out. And it wasn’t just a brief call-out, it was an entire lengthy scene dedicated to why Octavia’s actions are NOT being supported by the narrative and are NOT right or honourable. 

“A warrior knows when not to kill. Lincoln taught you that. You seem to have forgotten.”

FINALLY RECOGNITION THAT A WOMEN WITH A SWORD IS NOT ALWAYS BADASS AND EMPOWERING. IT TAKES MORE THAN THAT. IT TAKES HONOUR

And to those of you who were screaming about Octavia never dealing with the consequences of her actions after … what? 4x02? YOU COULDN’T WAIT TWO EPISODES??? WHY DO YOU JUMP TO CONCLUSIONS WHY DO YOU TORTURE YOURSELVES? Short rant concluded. This was a top-knotch scene. 

5. LUNA

She is so gorgeous and her voice is so soothing. She makes every episode better just be existing.

6. THE ISLAND IS SO COOL

I’M SO GLAD THAT ALIE’S MANSION IS NOT THE ONLY THING WE GET TO SEE OF THIS ISLAND. THE WHOLE INTRIGUE SURROUNDING BECCA AND HER LAB AND THE DRONES AND THE “MUTANT LINE” AND THE MYSTERIOUS THINGS THAT ALIE’S SECURITY IS “PROTECTING” THEM FROM IS SO INTERESTING AND ITS SO DIFFERENT FROM ANYTHING THIS SHOW HAS DONE BEFORE AND BOY AM I EXCITED TO FIND OUT WHAT’S GOING ON AND EVERYTHING TO DO WITH THIS STORYLINE. AND ALSO I, AND A LOT OF OTHER PEOPLE, TOTALLY PREDICTED THAT THEY WERE HEADED BACK TO ALIE’S ISLAND TO FIND A LAB OF SOME SORT BACK IN THE HIATUS SO GOOD-WORK TEAM. NOTHING GETS PAST THIS FANDOM, I SWEAR.

7. Jackson being a total babe and helping out Raven this episode/showing compassion and concern

So I’ve seen people shipping it and I am … oddly, not opposed??? I mean, he’s sweet and that banter was nice and he’s a doctor which means he’s probs smart and also can help her out with her pain (kinda) and it will never happen but I CAN DREAM OKAY? 

Also, Jackson is Jackson’s only name. I’m sorry, I don’t make the rules. You will never hear me referring to Jackson by any other name. #dealwithit

8. “Save us all” sounds like “keep us all clean” in Trigadesleng because apparently Grounders know their priorities

I guess this explains why L.exa had that deep conditioned shit last season while Clarke was progressing through her slow but steady evolution into a dirty mop

9. “I’ve never met a line I wouldn’t cross.”

Richard you get the best lines. And you slay them every time.

10. MURPHY AND RAVEN’S DYMAMIC

I’M SO EXCITED. Lindsey and Richard are both a thrill to watch and they’re both so sassy and their history is just … WOW. They haven’t had many scenes together ever since that KILLER scene in the dropship where we learned Murphy’s backstory which is a total crime because THEIR CHEMISTRY SERIOUSLY FLIES THROUGH THE ROOF.

I do think Murphy was trying to get on Raven’s good side when he grabbed her and helped her to safety and it was definitely for his personal motives, but I do also believe that a large part of him wanted to do it as an attempt to make up for fucking up her life so bad as well. It’s such an interesting dynamic to watch.

Just want to clarify that I don’t ship it because … y’all he literally shot her and paralyzed her why do you do this?? But I definitely want to see more of them on my TV screen

11. Dad!Kane cupping his son’s face

Need I say more?

12. “Warriors don’t reveal their secrets.”

AND ECHO LOOKS AT BELLAMY BECAUSE HE DIDN’T CAVE AND REVEAL THEIR SECRETS BECAUSE MY BOY IS SO STRONG 

13. Ice Nation is SO much more interesting than Trikru

BYEEEEEEEEEEEEE

14. “Remember that time we welded your dad’s furniture to the ceiling? Now THAT was a prank.”

I WOULD SAY SO MONTY LMAO THIS IS SO EXTRA AND I LOVE IT

CLASSIC JONTY I CAN CLEARLY ENVISION THEM DOING THIS

15. “You’re not God, Clarke. You don’t get to decide who lives and dies.”

Hmm … that’s an interesting line. Almost like it might be … I don’t know … A major theme of the show or something?

Also A++ delivery Devon. Kudos.

16. This show is SO GOOD with moral dilemmas

They truly do bring their A-Game every season. The List is just one example of these so-called moral dilemmas. There truly is no right choice. Clarke was pragmatic, everything she did made SENSE. But was it moral? Was it humane? That’s another story, and it’s one these writers are not afraid to tell.

17. Monty and Clarke’s interactions are all so on point

“You’re the one going too far and using the same old justification: it’s all for my people.”

ANOTHER MAJOR THEME ALERT

Monty is spilling the tea this episode and while I understand Clarke’s mindset and sympathize with her for dealing with the pressure on her shoulders, everything that Monty said in this scene was absolutely 100% true, and it’s going to come into play in Clarke’s character arc this season, I am sure.

18. Raven’s struggle with her leg is so real

Kim perfectly captured the struggles that Raven has to deal with and how her leg, while limits her physical ability, certainly does not limit her determination, her skill, and her brain. 

19. “What if the fight is all we are? We torture, kill, betray. We pretend we’re more than that just to make ourselves feel better, but it’s a lie.”

I love this line so much. This episode encapsulates so many themes and big ideas of the show (and it grapples with morality in hugeeeee ways) and I’m loving it.

20. “You’re not a prisoner, Luna. You have a choice.”

Raven putting her gun down and saying this to Luna is SO important, especially when you think about how Clarke tried to force the flame on her in 3x14. Free will was a major theme last year and I’m glad to see it paying off now.

21. Jaha swooping in and stealing that crowd

Listen. I know that there are many conflicted opinions on Jaha and I know that lot of people hate him. But I have never been more intrigued. His story this season is sooo interesting. I have no idea what to expect from him. I feel as though he is so disconnected from the other characters at this point in the narrative that he’s a complete wild card. Do I trust him or not? Should I? What are his motives? What knowledge does he have that the other characters don’t?

He’s so fascinating to me in that he is completely unpredictable. His story this season could break off in just about any direction. 

This scene was really fun to watch. Clearly, Jaha’s years of being a Chancellor comes in handy with a crowd. He knows what to do, what to say, to sway them. It reminds me of Bellamy, in a way, actually. Say what you will about Jaha, but he has a way with words and he knows how to inspire people. I can’t wait to see how this goes. 

(I totally think that lottery is bullshit and I think that Jaha realizes this, but he’s manipulating the crowd. We’ll see how this blows up in our faces later.)

“The people need to feel like they have a say in their fate.”

Another interesting line that I enjoyed. Just wanted to point it out.

22. “It’s the only choice you gave yourself. If you think you have the best idea, you have to convince people, not lie to them. Or lock them up.”

So choices and free will and truth and morality are all big focusses of this episode. People seem to overlook how much great thematic stuff is in 4x04 but there’s a lot and it’s great.

23. Becca’s lab is bomb AF

24. BOB MORLEY DESERVES A FUCKING EMMY PLEASE AND THANK YOU

25. “Take me home.” 

BECAUSE EVEN AFTER ALL THIS TIME ARKADIA AND THE SKY PEOPLE ARE STILL OCTAVIA’S HOME BECAUSE THAT’S WHERE BELLAMY IS (or so she thinks) AND HELLO YES I’M STILL EMO
