but don't really have the courage to make a new edit

header graphic by @squirrellygirlart || @miraculousblackout

Let’s talk about reposting, shall we? c:

I’m a little late to the party because I’m a dumdum who thought this was in August, but here we go. Long post ahead.

Funnily enough (or not), because I was late to join this protest, I posted a comic celebrating a follower milestone during the blackout and barely 2 HOURS later, it got reposted on Instagram. I kid you not:

(if you can’t see it, I posted mine 20 hours ago, and the repost was made 19 hours ago)

Anyway, this really puts a bad taste in my mouth. Not only was my work reposted almost immediately after it was made, it was also by someone who doesn’t even follow me AND they even changed up the caption for their own, thereby erasing my message for the comic I made.

I feel really disrespected as a creator. I made that comic to thank my followers, and right off the bat someone who is not even following me goes on and snatches it up.

The intent to repost this before anyone else was clear. Not once have I received a message asking for permission. It’s like… nobody cared to ask me first? It’s okay as long as they slap my name on the description like “lairep on tumblr made this”? Haha. no

Did they directly link the original post? Did they directly link my blog? No. And let’s be real, who’s even going to bother manually typing my name on the searchbar to go to my blog to see more of my posts when they can easily find them on some reposter’s account? Just giving the name is not enough credit. Just giving a name is not enough “exposure” or whatever new excuse a reposter has for doing it.

I’m not asking for much. Just don’t make me feel this way. Like I don’t matter besides providing content for you to peruse as you please. I do this for fun and I enjoy sharing, but I have the right to share in however way I want to. I’m the one making it, not you.

It took me a lot of courage to even start posting anything at all, because I’ve had previous experience of art theft that drove me from drawing and sharing for years… and if this goes on—- let’s just say I don’t want a repeat of that. I want to share, I want to make content, so please don’t do things that would make me want to stop.

Please don’t make other creators feel this way. Let creators feel like they matter. That you appreciate them. That you want them to keep making content you and others would enjoy. Make them feel the joy they give you with their posts. Make them feel like staying in the fandom instead of leaving.

Don’t steal, don’t repost. At the very least, drop a line to ask permission. It’s not hard to click links and type words. Even just to show you respect them as a person. It’ll be worth it, I promise. c:

This has been a long post (and I haven’t even touched on PLAGIARISM), but I had to say my piece. I fully support this blackout for me, my friends, and for other creators who are dealing with this kind of thing every. freaking. day.

Edit: Accidentally posted early instead of drafting, but I wanted to say I love all you artists/writers out there who bring joy and angst to the fandom and I hope you continue doing the thing c: I support you against all thieves, reposters, and plagiarizers.

Hello it's me again! I really need some Coran love, so I was thinking maybe that reader is in a secret healing pod and one day Coran finds it and it's his best friend and Allura's caretaker(for when the king was away). It's just a suggestion! You don't have to do it if you don't like it!! Hope your week is going well and Keep up the amazing work

BUT THIS IS REALLY CUTE, AND I’M SO SORRY IT’S TAKEN ME SO LONG TO GET TO THIS OMG. I had a lot to do, and still do, on this blog. But I didn’t forget! Thank you for being so patient with me!! > //<

Edit: this didn’t turn out how I wanted it to at all omg it’s hella more angsty than I intended??

– Ryan

It was always difficult for Coran to look down the corridor leading to King Alfor’s personal chambers. He didn’t dare think of how it felt for Allura – it must’ve been tenfold. Regardless, Coran decided it had to be done. He draws in a deep breath and musters up the courage as he walks the first steps in 10,000 years to the King’s quarters.

He’s met with the familiarity of when he walked the halls, back when he was an adviser, and Alfor was.. very much alive. He swallows in his hesitation, realizing he’s been standing in front of the double doors to the king’s room for some time now. He screws his eyes shut, and opens the door without looking. The sound of the door sliding out of lock plate and the squeaking hinges put him to times long ago. As if he would see Alfor in his room, with the same bright smile on his face as he plans new ways to avoid a conference.

Those are times he could no longer experience, and sorrow from that realization filled him as he looked into the empty room. He sighs once more, a habit he hoped he wouldn’t pick up. He walks into the room, looking for something in particular, to give to Allura. In her time of need, she would want to look back on the album the King had left for her.

But Coran was having difficulties remembering where it was. “Perhaps it was..? No, maybe it’s.. Is it here?” He prods through drawers and shuffles through desks and shelves, trying hard not to mess things up too much. As Coran felt along a shelf, his hand hit a panel. A loud hissing noise sounded from behind him, and he yelled out in surprise.

He had no idea what it could have been, for all he knew he’d activated a security system or a defense of some type. He turns around slowly, not quite sure what he was expecting to see, but it definitely wasn’t a stasis pod.

“What in the sweet burning solars is this..?” He mutters to himself as he approaches the pod. Upon further inspection, it reads the charts of an individual lying inside. 

Before he could even register what he’d just found, and the significance of it, the pod activates, releasing its occupant. Coran acts quickly, catching your falling form.

“But, my liege, you mustn’t-” Your words come out, the emotion behind them as if you’d been holding a conversation all this time. There’s a pang in Coran’s heart, and he holds you a bit tighter. You groan a bit as your mind clears up a bit.

“[y/n]??” He tries his best to keep calm, but he had been so sure that he and Allura are the last of the Alteans. Just to see you again, even hold you in his arms, had Coran’s heart swelling in his chest so much, he almost couldn’t breathe.

“C.. Coran?” Your groggy voice carries his name, and he almost loses it. He holds you tight against his body, “[y/n], I.. I thought we’d lost you too.”

Confused, you hold him as well. “But if you’re here.. and we’re no longer under attack, does that mean..?” You pull away to look back at the pod, and Coran confirms your suspicions.

“Just like us, you’ve been asleep for 10,000 years. Altea is…” gone. He left the word unspoken, but you knew what he meant. You bring a hand to your heart, feeling the loss of your people, your home. “And King Alfor…?” Coran just gives a solemn nod, and you can feel grief crash upon you. 

“But we haven’t lost anything.” Coran says, smiling at you. His hand comes to take yours, and he squeezes it gently. “In fact, I feel like we’ve lost nothing at all, now that you’re here, [y/n].” He means every word of it. 

You’d been by Allura’s side since birth. If Allura were to know you’d survived for this long, she’d have someone, next to Coran, who can share in her memories of her father, her childhood, and her home planet.

“Allura would be so happy to see such a familiar face.” He turns to the door, gesturing for you to take your first steps into a new lifetime. You smile at the mention of the princess, and memories flood back to you. You nod, and make your way to the door, still acclimating to your legs that have been out of commission for 10,000 years. Coran walks beside you, familiar with the old sleep chamber knees™, to catch you if you fall.

Yes, focusing on what cannot be done will not change the course of the future. You decide then, you will do everything in your power to continue serving the princess.

1,000 Followers Celebration! 

As someone who has built most of their lives on words-the intricacies of them, how a few simple letters can combine in an infinite number of possibilities to create words and paragraphs and ideas-it’s not often that I find myself speechless. But I am now, because I’ve reached a milestone that I never thought I would ever reach. So you’ll have to excuse me while I do a bit of storytelling. 

I first became aware of tumblr last year and I’d always had the idea of creating a more specialized sideblog, but it wasn’t until March or April that I started seriously considering making it. Not only was Game of Thrones beginning to take over my life again, but I had (surprise, surprise) been writing a lot of fanfiction. And I was stunned at the lack of Jonerys fanfiction. So of course I figured ‘since they probably won’t get their happy ending, why don’t I write it instead?’ From the beginning it was mostly just going to be oneshots so I could write a lot in between the constraints of school and keeping up the appearance of having a social life. 

But I didn’t think I’d get any more than 150 followers, at most. I guess I happened to come at a good time. Like, I don’t know why I have so many. I don’t write long and complicated meta, I don’t make amazing edits, and I’m not a super great artist. I’m not even really a part of the community, really-I only started really being into GOT in 2014, right before I turned 13, and started watching it this past season-so it’s not like I’ve known everyone for years. I just write fanfic and reblog other people’s posts and generally love my ship, because Jonerys has done so much more for me than I can articulate. I don’t know if I really understand it myself, but it’s helped me cope with anxiety and high school (which are both awful, in case you were wondering). And it’s so much easier to reach out to people when I know we already have something in common. 

And you might not think it’s a big deal that most other people who ship the ship are in their twenties and thirties but to me it is, because that seems like a lot of years and I always feel like I have to overcompensate and not seem immature. Because like I’m not used to being a part of a fandom. I’m used to writing thousands of words every night, just not so much posting them online. But I’m getting better. 

Lol I don’t write fics for any of you. I write them because the ideas are in my head anyways and I figured ‘maybe someone wants to read this shit instead of just having it sit on my computer so I can read it on long car rides’. And apparently, someone did. 

So thank you for making this community such a wonderful place and giving a young writer room to grow and build her craft (and occasionally make some shitty edits because she doesn’t really want to shell out a lot of money for Photoshop). Where it’s totally not weird that I’m obsessed with a fictional couple and have their family tree written out seven generations into the future (well, maybe it is a little bit, but I’m used to it). In less than three months. 

Now I’m going to start praising all of my talented mutuals because once I get started writing it’s hard to stop. But I just want to thank all of you so much-for this milestone and all the ones before. Really. Every time I hit another hundred I’d think ‘but that’s it.’ And it hasn’t been. 

Thank you all so much for everything that you do for our community. You all deserve the best in the world <3 Love you all

Now let’s actually enjoy Jonerys tonight! 

~

Mutuals: 

You’ll notice I don’t have very many. Firstly because this blog is only a few months old so I haven’t really had time and I’ve been hesitant to follow multifandom blogs for a while because I need lots of Jonerys content for this site. But feel free to reach out to me whenever. I promise that I’m a really nice person lol and I can talk about things other than GOT. Really. 

I’m also really anxious so I haven’t gotten to know any of you as well as I would like to, especially since it’s only been a few months. I’d really like to change that, if that’s all right with all of you. I’m going to have to get through hiatus somehow-unless tonight kills me and the Sex That Was Promised sends me to heaven on Cloud 9….

In no particular order (I could go alphabetically but I just don’t have the time for that right now) : 

@jxlight : I remember when you left a comment on my second story No Regrets back in May and I flipped out because I love all of your artwork and I couldn’t believe you’d actually read my fic lol. You make the cutest comics and I always look forward to reading them-they always make my day, no matter what I have going on! 

@trueloveforeverbeautyandthebeast : I love your blog so much! It’s so pretty (and I love your url)! You’ve been here since the very beginning and I always love it when you leave comments on my stories or like my posts!

@mpaty1475 : Another of the perennials lol. Always leaving kudos on my work. I always looking forward to seeing your username and the comments you add to your posts. Thank you so much! 

@ellimomo : What is there to say about you that hasn’t been said by someone already? You’re the Queen of Positivity and the Queen of AUs, a total optimist, and the nicest person to the new people in the fandom. Your AUs make my day whenever I see them. Seriously. You’re so creative. You were one of the first people I (finally) got up the courage to talk to when I was new to the fandom and I’m so glad I did. The Jonerys community is so lucky to have you, whether it’s for your reaction gifs or your ship positivity when we’ve been getting a lot of anti hate lately. Our ship would be a lot different without you and I’m so glad you’re here! 

@sweetorganza : Beautiful edits, always. You have such a talent. Also so kind to everyone. I’m always honored whenever you like or reblog something of mine, especially something that I write. Your recent Alliances edit? Almost made me cry. From a set of moving pictures. I don’t know whether that says more about me or you. 

@jonerysthrones : You run a lovely Jonerys blog! I love seeing all your answers to questions (especially those from antis) and I’ve also seen some lovely edits! A really great source for everything Jonerys (and staunch Daenerys defender). 

@bemywiggins : You reblog some of the most interesting content and you never fail to make me laugh, even if it has nothing to do with Game of Thrones or I don’t get the reference. Like, I reblog so much content from you. It’s lovely. Never stop lol!

@scarletstonewood : Another one of my Jonerys friends! I still have to listen to those songs you said reminded you of Jonerys because I’m terrible at listening to music if it’s not composed by Ramin Djawadi… Also love your tags! You just summarize all of us shippers (or at least me) so well! Love it love it love it love seeing you on my dash. 

@oadara : I’ll just flat out say I’m still lowkey nervous whenever I add onto your posts or whatever because you’re like the definition of Jonerys royalty and you were writing meta for the ship when I had no idea who Dany was other than she raised her dragons as her children???? Your meta is amazing and so are your answers. Thanks for shutting down all of the damn antis-and yes, for discussing the mysteries of life with me that one time. I can’t imagine what it must have been like to watch this ship develop over time but I do know it would be a lot different if we didn’t have you spearheading it all. So thank you for your kindness and your sheer willpower and for being the closest person to Daenerys Targaryen that’s actually real. And believe me, that is not a compliment I give out lightly. I am literally still in awe of you. 

@gleeksoccergal : Also a great source for content. Thanks for reading my stories and for always sending me random Jonerys photosets when I need something to cheer me up. Really, your timing is quite amazing. 

@naerysv : Congrats on your own milestone by the way! I love your blog and the way you fiercely defend our queen whenever. You’re so lovely and I love seeing your stuff on my dash :)

@sleeplessme : My source for all of the leaked dialogue that I don’t let myself look at. But seriously-you’re another rock solid member of the fandom and I always look forward to hearing your take on characters, episodes, and theories! You do so much for our community and your opinions are absolutely invaluable. 

@luvd80s2 : Another source of content because you reblog everything. I love whenever I see that you’ve reblogged my stuff because it just makes everything seem more…official. I can’t explain it but I love seeing what you add on to things-especially your reaction gifs! Absolutely amazing. The fandom is lucky to have you!

@truegodofthearena : Creator of amazing edits that I’m always stunned by because some people (like you) have such an amazing handle on Photoshop. I also love when you reblog my fics and then add something in the tags about how much you like it because there’s always this little bit of time after I post a fic when I regret writing it in the first place and it’s always nice to know that even just one person liked it. I always look forward to seeing you on my dash. Thank you for being so kind to a newbie :) 

@mhysaofdragons : Again, what is there to say about you that people haven’t already? I remember when you just had 300 followers lol. And now you make amazing edits and answer questions and write meta and write fics and…lol, you could put me out of my job and write all my fics and I bet no one would mind. You’re so kind and caring too. One of my favorite blogs that I follow-I’m always excited every time you like one of my stories. Also amazing at gifsets. I know I already said that but I’m still thinking about what I want to do about my request because I don’t want to muck it up…I’m so glad you were one of the first blogs I started following. You welcomed me to the fandom on one of the Daenerys posts I made on my multifandom blog and I’ve never forgotten that. 

@letdaeneryslive : I love your url, by the way. And your blog. You always have the best content and I love seeing you on my dash :)

@thesilverrqueen : Probably one of the sweetest people I’ve met on Tumblr. Always reblogging my stuff, even if they’re just random posts about my writing updates or how no one in my family understands GOT in any way. Thanks for the compliments you put in the tags (and your url is also lovely) !

@khaleesiwhitewolf : Another newbie! And yet you run a high quality blog and deserve all of your new followers. I always look forward to seeing what you add on to everyone’s posts and the way you always talk straight about Game of Thrones and the joy/struggle that comes along with watching it.

@annabelleebythesea : I remember exactly where I was when you started following my blog-I was having breakfast in an airport with my dad on the way back from NYC and I got so excited it was hard not to make him think I was any weirder than he already does. Because your gifs are so amazing and you have such talent! I have no idea how you gif everything so fast (are you sure you sleep?) but I have a lot of respect for it because everything you make is lovely. The fandom is blessed to have you making edits for us. Honestly. I love talking with you about our lovely ship <3 And cats. See above. 

@princessdany : You have the cutest blog and the greatest aesthetics. It’s lovely. And you’re lovely, obviously. And I love your color edits-you really have a lot of talent. It’s been wonderful being a part of the community with you :)

@daenerystubborn : Great aesthetic, beautiful edits. Like, really beautiful edits. Shamelessly reblog yourself all you like, please. You deserve it. 

@inside-the-overthinkers-mind : One of my fellow fic writers! I love your fics sooo much honestly and I love it whenever you reblog mine because you’re such a talented writer. I hope you write something else soon; our fandom always needs more fanfiction and sometimes I feel kind of bad because I’m just consistently spamming you all the time with random drabbles and oneshots…but your blog is quality. High quality. 

@arriannemvrtell : CINNAMON LEMON CAKES. If you don’t understand that reference I got your name change wrong-in which case, please redirect this post to the person whose username used to be eliamartvll. You’re soooo sweet. Thanks for being my beta reader even though technically you haven’t betad anything yet lol. Thank you for messaging me at two in the morning your time and for always being so kind to everyone. I have to say, I was hesitant to follow someone whose blog also ships Jonsa-but I was pleasantly surprised to find that you’re one of my favorite blogs I follow. Though you’re such a lovely person that shouldn’t be surprising. All the internet hearts in the world. 

@forcenturiestogether : New mutuals here but I love your blog. You’re always posting something GOT related. Thanks for liking all of my shit posts lol

@winter-comes-with-fire-and-blood  : You’re so sweet! I love your blog and all your opinions on Jonerys-you’re so knowledgeable and know how to make a young one feel welcome. I’m so glad I met you, honestly. And your fanfics are amazing too :)

@sethkatejonerys : Such a sweetie. Welcome to the ship! You have a great blog, just so you know. I love seeing you on my dash! 

@arya4queen : Lovely edits and soo nice :) We’re new mutuals but I love talking to you and your edits are so amazing. Never doubt that-I will always reblog them. Multiple times, if you’d like lol. 

@heylowday : Literally the best. You always make my day and I’m so honored that you like my fanfics and are making me edits because seriously your edits and manips are some of the best I’ve ever seen. I can’t believe it. Thank you so much lovely! And also your fan videos are AMAZING!!!!! Everyone should check them out if they haven’t already. 

@loyalbarbarian : Love seeing your comments on stuff. Keep on keeping it real. Never change lol 

@dreamofspring : One of my favorite gif makers. They’re incredible. Honestly. Goals. I always look forward to seeing your edits and icons. This is a depressingly short thing but just know you’re one of my absolute faves and I’m so glad that we’re mutuals :) 

@mrsharington : Kit Harington and Richard Madden source I never knew I needed. I love all of your creative posts, even though we’re recent followers. You’re so sweet and kind and I always look forward to your amazing content! Already one of my faves! 

@mudinyourlungs : I’ve been waiting a very long time to tell you just how much I adore your blog. I love reading your asks and answers and you do so much to shut down the hate in our fandom. You’re so intelligent but also ready to fangirl with anyone over how amazing it is that this is Actually Going to Happen and I’ve been a fan for a very long time. Your blog is truly amazing. I absolutely love it. So glad we’re mutuals.

@spaceamazon , @ferosa , @is-there-a-yugioh-fandom , @sakura-bell  My newest mutuals! I haven’t gotten a chance yet to get to know all of you as much as I would like to but just know that I appreciate how much I always see you on my dash :) 

*Also, I’m very sorry if I missed anyone! I just went through a list of my followers and I think I got everyone but it was also 10:30 at night (I wrote some of this in advance because I’m working today) sooo (also why I took a picture of my cat instead of making an actual edit lol)

Okay… Because I feel pretty emotional right now I write this!!

This summer was amazing!! I started this blog in May, I made my first internet friend in June and the rest of the summer got better and better. I can’t imagine life without Tumblr now… It became a part of me. I start my first day of high school in less than 12 hours. I won’t be active all the day as usual… I will probably post in the morning and night! And I will NOT make a queue!!! I hate those things!!

During this summer I made new friends and I discovered what really means to have a life of a real fangirl and to be part of a fandom. Well the TSC fandom is amazing!! Thank you guys for making fan arts, head canons, edits and fanfiction!

I want to say thank you to all my followers!

  • Vassago: don't
Coffee Love

He came to the little coffee shop every day at the same time, ordering the same thing, a tall caramel latte and apple fritter, every day, and sat down at the table in the back corner in front of the window. From the moment she saw the strange man with spikey, snowy hair and crimson eyes, Maka knew he was going to be the end for her. She picked up on his routine after about a month, her schedule rarely changing due to her obligation to school. She didn’t know his name. The only thing she knew about him other than his coffee shop routine, as she came to name it, was that he currently attended one of the universities in town and was a music major. She only knew this because every now and then he would bring a music textbook to read, and other times he would spread out papers on the table to study for some exam coming up. Maka still didn’t know his name after five months of him coming in due to her mystery man leaving an hour before her shift was over every time. But Maka wasn’t sure she would even work up the nerve to ask his name had he stayed longer than he did.

anonymous asked:

I'm new to the Regina Mills fandom and I want to make friends with other fans. I figure Tumblr is the best way but I don't know how to start??? What do I do first? Who do I follow? How do I make friends??

Hello, dear one!

Making friends on tumblr is great because it’s so easy!

Here’s what you can do:

- Just go into people’s inboxes and say Hi. What you did right now is already such a great first step! Of course, it’s more fun when it’s off anon, but I have one absolutely lovely but very shy friend who messages me on anon all the time and I appreciate my “lovely anon” to bits, so if you’re very shy, feel free to send nice anons to people and wait until you feel comfortable and welcome before you reveal yourself.
- if you enjoy fanfic/fan art/meta, reblog someone’s work and leave some nice words in the tags. I promise you they’ll see it and appreciate every single thing you’ve got to say and sometimes, someone will message you thanking you for your feedback and you can start a discussion that way! :)
- do a mixture of the first two and leave some nice words about someone’s fic/art/meta in their inbox. Tell them about your favorite part or ask them a question about it.
- join in discussions that you see on your dash. Now, this one takes a bit of courage but is a great way to get to know people!
- Just tell someone whose blog you really like that… well, you really like their blog :D
- message new followers thanking them for the follow
- reach out to people who post about something that’s going on in their lives. Just offer a virtual hug and support. It can mean the world to someone!


Now, about people to follow. Where do I start?

This will turn into a very extensive blog list, so I hope you don’t mind me taking the chance to turn this into my follow forever of sorts (crappy header and all!).
