Word Count: 3666 Adult Themed but SFW (Later chapters will be entirely NSFW. We’re building to it. I’m a sucker for sexual tension, ok?) Reader specifics: She has some sort of fashion color in her hair. It can be any color(s), in any amount, but it’s there. 2. She has a small tattoo on her right bicep. That is all. :D
Author’s Note: This little chapter was what started my journey into Prompto hell. It has since taken over my entire damn life and it’s all thanks to someone else’s photoshoot one shot. It was fine, but it left me un satisfied. I’ve tried my hand at modeling before, so the flow just felt inorganic. I also just couldn’t wrap my head around (the canon version of) Prompto just banging a chick he just met during a photoshoot. So I was like…I’m an ok writer…I could write it…then I needed it…and before I knew it, I was neck deep into 9 chapters and I now have an overarching plan to fix the end of the damn game. (Facepalm) I’ve been consumed.
I ALMOST didn’t post this. I’ve been reeling, trying to make it perfect. Then my dumb ass muse was like, “PREQUEL!”
Then it was like, “ONE SHOTS!” and I started like 4 that are currently incomplete because I keep going back to this damn chapter and fixing it. If I don’t just post this, I’m going to find a reason not to.
So here you go my lovely Prompto fans. I hope you enjoy it.
(If I tagged you, it’s because I’m pretty sure you appreciate Prompto. I hope that’s ok!!
Alien Reflections : A David 8 Character Study PART TWO
A/N: In my last post….“I left the movie theater like a lot of people with more
questions than answers. I wanted to know more, I wanted to understand what it
was that I had just watched. I needed to understand why this movie left me so
affected. Why did this film lead me into
a mild obsession of sorts with the character David 8?AND speaking
of Mr. David 8… I 1000%, whole heartedly believe he is in love with Elizabeth Shaw.”
And so we continue…
It’s a rather bold statement to make true; but I promise
I will elaborate on the “how’s & why’s” I came to that revelation in a
bit. However, there are a couple of
things I need to get out first.
In my search for any sort of answers concerning
Prometheus, I came across an analysis video posted by a YouTube Movie Reviewer
named Chris Stuckmann. His nearly 20 minute “Prometheus Explained” video,
CHANGED MY LIFE. Immediately after I’d finished watching it I subscribed to his
channel and have never looked back.
It’s a video that I highly recommend people watch. Here
is the link to it. [Click Here For Video Link] One
can really see the amount of thought, research and care that Chris Stuckmann
put into it. All of his future digital essays have the same level of attention
to detail and understanding of what makes for good storytelling.
That being said, while I pretty much think that Chris was
spot on with his take of Prometheus and to a lesser extent his breakdown of
David. Where our viewpoints differs occurs just under the [2:30] mark of his
video when Chris states and I quote:
“We see David
preforming his daily routines, which consists of learning new languages,
watching the classics and spying on
my humble opinion that last part of Chris’s statement is incorrect. David’s not
spying on the crew’s dreams, he’s
spying on Elizabeth’s dreams. No one
else’s just hers specifically.
It’s made abundantly clear upon watching the film that
David is particularly fascinated with Shaw. When viewing the scene where he
“tenderly” covers Elizabeth’s heaving form with a blanket, I remember thinking
to myself “Oh yeah this guy is definitely
interested in her.”
Don’t believe me? Go
back over the movie again and really pay attention to his interactions with
Shaw. He’s extremely attentive to Shaw and exceptionally aware of her. Never
once does David treat any of the other crew members in the same way as he
He even goes out of his way to save Shaw when she and the
Not-Tom-Hardy gets caught in the silicon storm. Yet, make no mistake David’s
main concern is saving SHAW not Impostor Tom-Hardy, he only does so because
Not-Tom-Hardy is there too. I strongly believe that had it just been Not-Tom-Hardy
who’d been caught outside, David wouldn’t have bothered. You can just
practically feel the undeniable mutual underling animosity between the two ever
since Not-Tom-Hardy woke up.
Not even Peter Weyland, his creator truly has David’s
loyalty. Yes I said it, he doesn’t. Okay
sure he’s acting at the behest of Weyland, but David has no love loss for the
man. It just so happens that Weyland’s endgame goals lines up with David’s
inherent curiosity. Personally I believe
he hates Weyland, this is reflected in the conversation David has with
NTH: You think we wasted our time coming here, don’t you? D: You’re question depends on the understanding, what you hope to achieve by coming here?
What we hope to achieve? Well, it’s to meet our makers. To get answers. Why they…why they even made us in the first place. D: Why do you think your people made me?
We made you cause we could.
D: Can you imagine how disappointing it would be for you to hear the same thing from your creator?
I guess it’s a good thing you can’t be disappointed, huh? D: Yes, it’s wonderful actually.
(on a side note I’d like to point out that I think David is lying about his ‘lack of disappointment’ if he genuinely feels no disappointment for the reason for his… ‘conception’, then why is David so obsessed with the idea of creating and creation? Just think on that for a while, I will return to it later.)
It is also seen again in a later conversation with Shaw.
ES: What happens when Weyland’s not around to program you anymore? D: I suppose I’d be free. ES: You want that? D: ‘Want’; not a concept I’m familiar with. That being said, doesn’t everyone want their parents dead? ES: I didn’t.
Someone asked me how I can possibly read and review so many fanfictions….well, I have a process and it’s all about staying on top of archiving completed emails.
This is what the Social tab in my inbox looks like this morning (at 10:30am). It looks like this EVERY morning and sometimes there are even MORE emails depending on you lot and how often you’re updating your fics. By 10:30am, I’ve usually archived more of them than this - but I’ve had a busy morning at work and haven’t been able to deal with many of them yet.
The emails marked read but not archived means that I’ve actually READ the chapter update and just haven’t reviewed it yet (mainly because I read it this morning on mobile while I was blow drying my hair or something or (in the case of one of the fics) I’m struggling with the exact wording of a review. It’s been plaguing me since I read the chapter yesterday and so since I’m struggling to find the words, it’ll remain in my inbox until I find them)
If it’s not a chapter update - if the reply notification is still in my inbox it means that I’ve seen the reply to my review and will likely be replying to the reply (I don’t always reply to the reply if not feeling particularly verbose that day or if the original reply to my review was “thanks so much for reading” - I don’t generally reply to those reviews. But generally - if you reply to me, I’m more than happy to continue the conversation. See above re: verbose).
As I review, I archive immediately and then hopefully by the end of the night all the old emails are archived and the new ones are addressed too. Tuesday nights are particularly bad for me to keep on top of things because I lead a group of Young Womens at my church on Tuesday nights and that’s not really conducive to fic reading… though I DO have two girls who love Riverdale… they just prefer Archie. It breaks my heart but there it is. (their actual words were they’d “take Archie’s looks but Juggie’s personality” - to which I nearly made them get out of the car and WALK home yesterday. It was a tense drive home. lol)
I just counted - and I received 37 fandom related emails on June 6th. That included 4 from tumblr telling me “You have 8 new followers” (not sure why sometimes I get an email about one specific follower and then other times I get ones about 17 followers all at once. I have no idea how that works).
So yes. Process. This isn’t counting when I start reading any NEW fics at Ao3. I get emails from authors I have on Subscription but every day I also go to the Betty/Jughead tag and I follow @ao3feed-jugheadxbetty to see new fics by new authors. I review and subscribe immediately if it’s a fic I know I’m gonna want to settle in and follow.
AND then all your tumblr fics. I’ve been doing my best to convince you Bughead writers on tumblr to archive on Ao3 (mainly because I find it’s easier to bookmark and subscribe to stuff there and I know you’re all about making things convenient for ME) - but then I always do a round once a day of my favourite tumblr fic writers to see if they’ve updated anything new. Some of you are quite prolific (I’m looking at YOU @bughead4days - not that I’m complaining. Eeek. Don’t stop being prolific!) - so I gotta keep on top of it as best I can…
All while still having a full time job, two teenagers and a tween, a hot husband who is kinda high maintenance but that whom I still like to kiss a lot, pretty hefty church responsibilities, making time to set aside moments to beta stories for author friends (only two at the moment and I love you both @raptorlily and @gellbellshead (that draft in my email is for YOU!)), attempt to write my OWN story (and deal with my own conflicting issues of inadequacy whilst being a perfectionist) not to mention time to compile my giant Bughead fic spreadsheet (that is seriously SERIOUSLY behind - like woefully behind. You would all KICK ME OUT OF THE FANDOM if you knew how far behind).
So yeah. That’s the morning in the life of THIS fangirl. I’m out of breath even thinking about it. I should probably just go read some fic and maybe review. lol.
(and yes - I have an Adult Wednesday Addams wallpaper on both my computer at work and at home - I’m nothing if not devoted… as you probably already know. lol.)
This was the first vid I’ve watch from Mark. I actually don’t remember how I got there, but all I know is that it was hilarious to watch and I immediately subscribed to this doof. And I’m glad I found this vid cuz if I didn’t, I wouldn’t be here at all.
So thank you Mark for everything (even tho I said this to u when I met u at Vidcon) and happy birthday 💙💙💙🎉🎊🎉🎊 @markiplier
So in late 2015, I was on a spree to find underrated boy groups. I really wanted to stan underrated boy groups and give them the love they deserve. (Side note: I had just learned Madtown, I think, and ToppDogg were next on the list.)
While scrolling videos, I found a video of a group of boys who looked to be dancing to BTS. So I clicked it and I was like wow, this is a different way to start a dance cover. I immediately subscribed to the channel when the boy with the glasses popped up. How could a boy that was only in a dance cover team be that cute?
I watched the video, then went to their YouTube channel to find more dance covers that had this glasses boy in it. To my surprise, I had found ASTRO’s channel. The day before, they had posted the beach video. Six cute boys? I thought. They’re not just a dance cover group, after all.
Then I made astrofantastic, and then I got my friends (and brother) into them, then I watched To Be Continued… I sort of spiraled into oblivion after that lol, and that brings us today!
6. What was your first impression of ASTRO?
See above. I really, truly thought that they were a dance cover team. I mean, they were good, and it was a BTS song (which seems to be a popular theme with dance cover teams). Also, Bin glasses boy had immediately stolen my heart, so there was no way I couldn’t be a fan. It was literally love at first sight.
14. Have you had any dreams about ASTRO?
Yes. They usually include the entire group in some way or another. One that I remember most vividly was living in a house with a large back yard that was also kind of the side yard because it was on a corner lot. MJ, of all members, appeared and started flirting with me. This was back in late Autumn Story era when I was really feeling attacked by him lol. Then the rest of ASTRO showed up and were like hyung, we have to go to practice. So he left, and I woke up.
Side note: If there’s a boy in my dream and I can’t remember what he looked like when I wake up, I just pretend it’s a member of ASTRO.
21. What hair color do you want to see on a certain member?
Blonde Moonbin. I feel like he could pull it off really well. Also, like, I think dark navy would look good on Rocky not because that’s his official color or anything. Bring back blonde MJ too, but like, real blonde this time.
30. If you could pick only one video of ASTRO to show your friend, which video would it be?
Hey jack, can I tell you a story? I use to have this reoccurring nightmare that happened almost every night. I wake up in complete darkness. Sometimes I’m tied to this chair. Or even worse this person(?) well he looks like a person but has no eyes or nose and has his mouth stitched closed. Well he is there holding a knife. Usually it’s just complete darkness and I’m trying to run away from him but I seem to go no where. When I found this channel(6 or 7 months ago) I was immediately in love with it. you and the community are so nice and positive that I immediately subscribed. So back to the nightmare after finding you, you would enter my dream and rescue me. You would usually have a lantern and guide me to the exit. I just want to thank you. Thank you for lighting my path. Thank you for saving me. You are my hero and you deserve this. You deserve to do what you love. You deserve all the success you have gotten and will get. Congrats on 16 million.
OKAY I saw a very interesting idea about S&P!Mark which I remember spoke about his environment changing along with his hair color (blue is water, red is fire etc) but I tried to find it again today and couldn’t find it in the tag?????
I don’t know yet if we will be using the idea/something inspired by it but right now I just want a visual of that niche skill. I like this idea not just a little. So there! a waterMark
Please don’t be afraid to tell me if the original idea is yours! I’ll edit this post to give you proper credit.
this is the first @markiplier video I watched. at first I was really confused, but I continued to look at the channel and immediately subscribed after seeing the silly shit this dude made.
years later and almost 16.9 (hehe 6.9) subs in between, i’m so fucking proud of this grown-ass man that makes himself look like a fucking dweeb in front of a camera just to make people smile. happy freakin’ birthday, markiplier.
Mark asked us in his latest video to look back and find a video or series that we really liked, that resonated with us, or that made us subscribe.
Immediately my mind went to his I Am Bread series and the beginning of his FNAF series, the first videos I came across back in 2014. I don’t remember which series actually introduced me to his channel, but I remember having a blast watching both of them.
Then I remembered that, after I had watched those videos and went to see what else he’d played, the amount of horror games I saw turned me off to the thought of watching more of him. I’m a total weenie and had only started watching his FNAF series because of a friend’s recommendation. So I didn’t watch a whole lot more of him for some time. Just his FNAF videos as they came out, and I think maybe his Octodad series.
But one day, a while later, I went back to check on his channel and see what was there, and this was the most recent video. Mark letting people know that he was in the hospital and wouldn’t be able to get back to making normal videos until he got out. Reassuring everyone that he was going to be okay. Thanking them for their support.
I’d only ever seen him screaming at games. But this video showed me what kind of person he was. And it was baffling. This guy…was in the hospital. And he was making a video in part to say that he might miss some videos because of it? I sat there thinking, “Dude you need to chill! Stop talking and hurting your throat and just get some rest! I’m sure everyone understands that your health is way more important than putting out videos.” If he needed to reassure people, he could have just made another tweet or two.
Sure enough, when I went on the Markiplier tag here on Tumblr, everyone was pouring out love and support and telling him “MARK PLEASE YOUR HEALTH COMES FIRST.“ The first Markiplier-related post I ever reblogged was one urging him to rest.
He made a few videos along the way to keep people updated and thank them again for their kind messages. He was eager to get back to making content as soon as he could. Even as he was healing from surgery, the channel and fans were still in the forefront of his mind. Talk about earnest…
I started watching more of this man, who I now knew loved making videos and loved the people who watched them. I even ended up watching many of his horror playthroughs, and now “markiplier playing horror” is a genre separate for me from just plain old “horror.”
When I finally realized “oops I still haven’t subscribed yet,” I rectified that mistake right away. I’ve been watching pretty regularly for about two years now.
@markiplier happy birthday, you loving and ambitious goofball. It’s been a fantastic journey with you so far, and I can’t wait to see where it goes.
What would be a good architecture journal to subscribe to for inspiration?
The ones that have I immediately think of here in the US are Architect and Architectural Record. Depending on your interests many others may provide inspiration (although you will quickly find out the internet can/will provide as much). I like Detail, Abitare and El Croquis. No self respecting architect will subscribe to Architectural Digest, Interior Design or Better Homes!
Hi, I’m Giorgia and I’m italian and I am 20 years old. A couple of months ago I reached a deep depression point that led me to start my weight loss journey . I feel a lot better now, but I have to lose some more weight and i’m posting this picture not only to gain a little bit of motivation back but also to maybe inspire someone :)
Height: 5’8 (174 cm)
Weight before: 247 lbs (112 kg)
Weight now: 225 lbs (102 kg)
Weight lost: 22 lbs (10 kg)
And I want to lose another 22 lbs
Diet: I eat 3 times a day (breakfast, lunch, dinner) sometimes I eat some snack if I’m hungry. I eat healty (vegetables twice a day and one fruit a day) , I avoid fast food, soft drinks, sweets and eat a lot less pasta and read. And I immediately subscribed to a gym, I workout 3 times a week :)
I am happy of my new lifestile cause I see results and I managed to have them without being hungry and sad and eating clean makes me feel a lot lot better too :) People says they see a lot of difference between the before and the after. I don’t see all that difference but I’m starting to notice that chlotes are larger. Let’s keep working guys :)
I don't know why it took me so long to find you, but oh my star spangled banner, I am SO glad I have! Your impressions video was perfect, and I immediately subscribed. I can't wait to see how much further you're going to get within the YouTube community, because as of right now, you are killin it! I just want to know, which of the impressions was the hardest to perfect?
ahhh thank you so much!!! this is such a sweet compliment.
the hardest one to perfect was a tie between dan and phil (and perfect is a generous statement hahaha) because they are both so funny and so distinct and i am SO tragic when it comes to their accents. i had sooo much good stuff scripted for phil but i did the accent so poorly i had to cut it out. i was so terrified their entire fandom would kill me haha — then i accidentally put their hair the wrong ways and i’ve never regretted anything more since.
I just recently subscribed to your YouTube channel and immediately fell in love. Your personality is so great and it's obvious you're having a great time when recording. It's really nice to see more people like that on YouTube nowadays :)
That’s so nice of you to say! Thank you! It makes me happy seeing so many of you genuinely enjoying my personality :)
Prompt: courferre modern au where they befriend each other after having a heated debate in the comments section of a youtube video and Courfeyrac declares his love for Combeferre in The Most Dramatic Video of All Time
Words: 1,475 Pairing: Courferre Characters: Combeferre, Courfeyrac, mentions of Cosette and Enjolras Rating: G
Combeferre knows that he shouldn’t respond to the comment. He knows. But it’s just so frustrating and no one has said anything to contradict the comment– although it’s gotten hundreds of thumbs-up. He stares at it for a few moments, and then decides that Courfeyrac, the maker of the video, would hate the comment just as much as he does, and decides to respond.
He’s been a pretty active member of YouTube for a long time, and has built up his own little subscriber base. He’s nowhere near as popular as Courfeyrac, of course, and he knows that he’s definitely not as charismatic or beautiful as the half-Mexican half-Algerian Parisian blogger, with his gorgeous curly hair and skin the same color as Combeferre’s.
So he replies to the YouTube comment. And then, moments later– Courfeyrac replies to his reply, agreeing with him. And then a few minutes later, he receives a message saying that Courfeyrac has subscribed to him, and a private message is coming through.
