but for the anons who wanted it~

Hi all! My little® one and I wanted to wave hi 👋 and give a little update in response to the kind DMs and anons who have asked after us. Things are going quite well in life and in the pregnancy. If all goes well, this summer my little man will get a baby brother! 😊

The pic’s actually a bit old, as we haven’t had our formal ultrasound. But this is what happens when you leave a pregnant woman alone in an office with an ultrasound machine!

My apologies that I haven’t been around much lately. My Tumblr absence is due to a few factors, most of which have to do with real life (work being especially busy), but also because Outlander fanfic, both the reading and writing of it, has always been entertainment for me. And when other things are more entertaining (or, in the case of American politics, unfortunately distracting), it gets pushed to the wayside. I have sporadically been working on the next chapter of Another Life, as I hate to leave it unfinished, but make no promises as to when it’ll be posted.

But as a little attempt to make myself focus again, here’s a little excerpt…

“Tell me about the stars, Sassenach.” Jamie’s voice was gentle and low, and he was looking at me, not at the stars slowly spinning above. The light from the moon lit his eyes, which were the clearest shade of blue I had ever seen, even in the dark. It was a clear night, and a beautiful one. After the sun set, a chill rose from the ground, making the air crisp and fresh. We lay in the grass together, and we took the lowering temperatures as an excuse to huddle close together. The wind stirred my hair, and he reached out to tuck a curl behind my ear.

“The stars? What do you want to know about the stars?”

“I remember, or rather, I wrote down something ye told me once.” He patted the sheaf of papers he had tucked back into his sporran. “‘Twas about how far away they are. But I dinna understand what I wrote. I was rushing, ken. Trying to pen all of it before I forgot anything more. I… I could feel myself losing ye, and I couldna bear it.”

The grief in his voice was thick, and it matched my own loss. Yet I had not had his foresight and had allowed my memories of him to slip away. I was distracted enough during the day with my duties as Lallybroch’s new healer and herb-mistress that I pushed aside my confusion. But at night, lying in the lonely room Jenny had lent me, I knew I was losing him, even as the days passed, and I no longer knew whom I had lost. Yet somehow, he was just inches away. I closed the gap between us by placing my hand on his where it lay on his sporran. He made a low, happy sound in his throat and opened his other arm to me, so I lay my head into the crook of his shoulder and looked up at the constellations. It felt as natural as breathing. “Well, it takes thousands of years for the light of the stars to reach us. Light travels fast, very fast, but the stars are just that far away. They’re suns, you see, like ours. Some much bigger, others smaller, at unimaginable distances. Some even died and burned out long ago, though the light they threw only reaches us now. So looking at the stars, we’re looking back in time.”

“Mmm.” His voice was a rumble. I felt it in his chest more than I heard him. “You would know, would ye no’? My lass lost in time.”

I turned my head so that I could hear his heartbeat, steady and slow, and answered, “Found, I think. Not lost, not now that I’m here with you.”

anonymous asked:

honestly please continue to write lgbt+ people even if you dont fully understand their experiences, make mistakes and learn from them. interview community members for their perspectives. do the same research for anything else you don't know about and don't be afraid of having to say im sorry and be forthright and honest when you need to apologize. i trust that you are able to do all of this and i trust that you are able to evaluate your own assumptions <3

Thank you, anon! That’s my policy, to not be afraid to apologize when I misrepresent a group of people, but to keep writing! I appreciate your support! Honestly, thank you everyone who has sent messages like this or commented on that post. It means a lot to me!

I do want to explain a little bit more why I made that post though.

I don’t know exactly what that anon was having an issue with. I am open to learning and will be reading more LGBTQIA+ literature, of course, and understand that as a cis, white woman I have a lot of privilege. I understand that my personal experience isn’t a catch-all representation of the community.

I’m writing gay people from my experiences as a bi woman and also from contributing to safe spaces during my time at college. I’ve been the organizer of a fair few LGBTQIA+ events, including one where we talked about LGBTQIA+ representation in the media. I’ve marched in half a dozen protests and taken college level classes on the issues the community has faced, is facing, and will potentially face.

None of that means that I don’t make mistakes! What it means is that I care a lot about fixing those mistakes.

So it really bothers me when I don’t get that opportunity to address these issues because I do want to improve. 

Special thanks to @afanofmanystuffs, @elleleuthold, @la-rainette   and @starlightmagika who have all been very positive, encouraging and constructive! I love @lgbtqreads, I have so many more books on my reading list now!

anonymous asked:

please! “i don’t want to go alone to my ex’s wedding and our mutual friend said you’re free that night” au

“Hot Bucky is free tomorrow night,” Clint says. “He texted me about getting hot wings five minutes ago.”

“Hot Bucky?” Steve asks, looking to Natasha for back-up.

Natasha rolls his eyes. “I met him in a bar. I was drunk. I put his name in my phone as Hot Bucky to help me remember who he was. Clint’s the one who never got over it.”

“Truthfully,” Clint says, “I say it because it’s true. He is hot.”

“As a hot wing?” Steve asks as he shoots off a text to Hot Bucky.

He gets blank stares.

“If you’re going to ask Hot Bucky to go to this wedding, you’re going to need to step up from dad jokes, Steve,” Clint says, slowly.

Hot Bucky says he’ll go, and Steve is already regretting it.

— —

Steve pulls up to Hot Bucky’s apartment in his eight year-old Corolla.

Hot Bucky is waiting for him outside in a suit.

“Oh no,” Steve says as Hot Bucky approaches. “He’s hot.”

Hot Bucky opens the door. “Hey,” he says, looking Steve over.

“Hi,” he says, feeling suddenly self-conscious.

Hot Bucky closes the door and looks at Steve again. “You’re Hot Steve in Clint’s phone,” Hot Bucky says. “But I didn’t realize that you were this hot.”

Steve looks at Bucky.

Bucky looks at Steve.

They don’t make it to the wedding.

— —

Instead they get hot wings delivered to Bucky’s apartment and watch every James Bond movie with Jaws in it together.

And that’s how Hot Steve and Hot Bucky become Hot Steve and Bucky, the Hot Couple.


So, as you could see, I have reach 1000 followers and I’m…It’s…Wow.

I seriously never ever expected this. Like, I thought it would be amazing if I had 50 followers and I was sure that my blog wouldn’t last a month. But here I am now. 5 months later and with more than 1000 followers.

It wouldn’t be possible without you, you are the ones who allow me to run this blog with your asks. So I just want to thank you. Really.

Thank you so much.

I wanted to make a little something to celebrate, something different than usual and I thought about using my Danganronpa Figures. I hope you had fun reading this haha !

Again, thank you. None of this would be possible without you.

anonymous asked:

So as a straight white man who likes writing and might want to include characters who aren't like me I know I'm never going to be able to do that as well as someone who actually is closer to that character (and is also a decent writer) but it seems like a counsel of despair to not even try. How do I avoid doing the things that piss you off?

1) Talk to the people you are you writing about. If it is a black gay trans man, talk to actual black gay trans men. Don’t just shrug emoji it.

2) Do your research. Their history, their movements, and their culture.

3) Have someone from that community read your things (there are even marginalized beta writers for fanfic), have SEVERAL someones from that community read your things. We have Internet now, you can find almost any kind of person on here. There are tumblr groups and other online groups of marginalized writers whose purpose is to give feedback and help people who want to write marginalized characters well.

4) Never stop trying to do better. Just because you wrote one good marginalized character, promise yourself to make the next one Great. AND realize you may never get it perfect, but that doesn’t mean to just give up. Have humility, apologize when you’re wrong without fussing about it and try to do better.

5) If you don’t understand it, don’t write it. Some things are hard to comprehend, some things you’ll never fully understand because culture can be a life-long lesson. Which I’m not saying give up on writing something, just Do Not focus on something you can’t understand. If you don’t know why black people Jump The Broom and for the life of you cannot find out why (though you should be able to and this is just an example) then don’t make your story about a black couple Jumping The Broom and wing it.

6) If you just want to write about a black character fighting goblins in the depths of a Dwarven Ruin. Go for it! You don’t have to touch on racism, it doesn’t exist. Just work hard to keep those issues out of your writing if you don’t want to touch on them (For instance, Bioware says colorism and racism based on skin doesn’t exist, yet Vivienne was made fun of for having dark skin and her lover not being able to find her in the dark because of it…that’s racism of skin and colorism SO…it must exist in DA)

7) Remember they’re people. Remember that someone is going to see your character and they might see themselves in it, especially if it is a marginalized character. Is a black person going to be happy or devastated that you oversexualized a black character for aesthetic? Devastated, because going back to #2 black people have been oversexualized in the past as objects. Which is completely different than a black person owning their own sexuality and sexual nature, belonging to themselves.

8) And lastly, question your motives. Why are you adding this character? To be killed off or for angst? BAD IDEA, also an overused trope of kill the marginalized character, try something more original. Are you adding them for representation? Well then! Figure out who you want to represent and get to know who you are representing at #1.

There are probably a few other things to do too, but just never be afraid to change something if it doesn’t work. Be open to criticism. And like all writing, always strive to improve and learn more.

And yeah, sometimes the above stuff isn’t free (such as the community groups information), but that’s also because these people took time and patience to share their lives, experiences, and cultures. Bloggers get paid for less and Writers get paid for the exact same.

Cody Christian X Reader

Word Count: 562

Requested: Anon

Request: Hi, I was wondering if I could request a imagine based on the song Amber Run - I Found? Please? And if yes thank you so much! 😆 Hi! :-) This is the anon who requested the amber run song imagine and could it be with Cody Christian please?

Originally posted by darkness-lightning

And I’ll use you as a warning sign

That if you talk enough sense, then you’ll lose your mind
And I’ll use you as focal point
So I don’t lose sight of what I want
And I’ve moved further than I thought I could

Cody wasn’t sure what he was looking for when he thought about a girl, then he found you and he was sure that it was wrong that he fell in love with someone so normal, but then you because his goal, you were his normality and so he focus on your he wanted to and his life crafted around you. You, on the other hand, thought that you were doing the same for him, you were that quiet girl at the back of the class that the teacher never worried about and the popular kids never notice, you were sure that Cody was a popular kid that wasn’t supposed to notice you but here you were with him.

But I miss you more than I thought I would

As much as you thought that it was wrong you were both mesmerised by the other and any time that you spent apart meant that you were pining for each other and often spent your time working until you could see each other again.

And I found love where it wasn’t supposed to be
Right in front of me, talk some sense to me
And I found love where it wasn’t supposed to be
Right in front of me, talk some sense to me

“Seriously how did you manage to get him?” (Y/F/N) asked.
“I don’t know.” You answered taking a sip from the cup of (H/D).
“I never thought that he’d choose you, you know that day when he came over.” she smiled.
“No, I was sure that he was there for you.” You admitted. Conversations like these ones often played in your head when you were waiting for him to come home or when we was home and you caught yourself staring.

And I’ll use you as a makeshift gauge
Of how much to give and how much to take

Cody walked through the door to find you looking through the old picture from your photo albums when you were a kid. “Hey babe.” he smiled leaning over the back of the sofa and kissing you cheek.
“Hi.” You mumbled turning the pages of the photo album.
“What’s up?” he asked walking around to sit opposite you.
“Nothing.” You answered.
“Look at me and tell me that.” He ordered and you looked up but you couldn’t say it. “What’s wrong?”
“I can’t help feeling like this is all wrong.” You finally said. “Look at me I’m supposed to be in the background and you force me to be someone else completely and I love it, but it’s scary because there is someone out there who has all of this naturally an-” You were promptly cut off by him pressing his lips against yours.
“You know you’re the one that I want I don’t want someone who naturally knows what to do that’s boring.” Cody smiled his forehead rested against yours. “Now how about you tell me some of the stories behind these pictures.”
It was then that Cody realised just how much love he needed to give you and how much he could afford to take.

Requests and general question!

I think my gf is going to break up with me

im so sorry and i know this isnt what u want to hear but a relationship that both people arent equally dedicated to isnt healthy or fair for both of u and u should never have to try and persuade someone to stay with u, u deserve someone who wants to be with u wholeheartedly

anonymous asked:

(make the baby not cry anon) The baby wants you to do it. Babies actually communicate in a pretty straightforward way. He wants you to make him not cry (probably because your grumpiness made him cry). He craves your affection. Maybe he thinks /you/ need affection. Either way, just make a cute sound at him or smile or something and see!

“Do you know who I am…? I don’t make cute sounds for babies!. That’s dumb!”

anonymous asked:

So I'm wondering if there are any full videos of Aaron in Wicked, CMIYC, et al? And who has links?

Hey anon, CMIYC has been floating around on YouTube for a while now, and N2N has been out there for a bit too.  Those 2 are both publicly listed on YouTube so I’m fine with linking them here.  I do know Wicked is out there too but the one I have seen is a private Vimeo video so I don’t want to link it here.  I know I’ve seen a tumblr post with the link/password but I can’t seem to find at the moment.  If someone wants to reply with that post’s link that would be fine.
