but i always appreciated her so much as a character

Chat Noir’s Popularity and Ladybug’s Importance

I really don’t understand where the notion that Paris doesn’t like or care about Chat Noir came from. I mean while he obviously isn’t as popular as Ladybug, people seem to appreciate him fine.

At the statue unveiling, Chat was the only one who showed up and not one single person in the entire crowd complained about where Ladybug was. The Mayor wanted her there, but he was fine with going on without her and Theo was reluctant about it because of his crush on her. But overall everyone was excited to see him! Even when Ladybug was absent, and before they revealed the statues, they continued cheering, and they took pictures of him.

I know that this is actually Copycat, but these people don’t. He’s Chat Noir to them and as soon as he enters the room they’re immediately in awe over being so close to the famous hero (the girl on the left even fangirls a little).

Look at how stoked this family is over seeing him. He’s not even doing cool superhero stuff, he’s just walking inside the museum.

When Ladybug arrived this was Nino’s reaction:

When Chat Noir arrived he was like:

This one random and well meaning dude cheering him on in the back.

Honestly no one has ever said anything bad about him, the only person who has even came close to insulting him had been Antibug by implying that he was a “sidekick” once.

However when you’re akumatized you’re not held accountable for your words and actions. And she had specifically said that as a way to persuade Chat to her side, so there’s not really a lot of weight in her words.

So yeah people cheer for Ladybug, but they also have shown to get excited over Chat Noir. It’s just that Ladybug is more popular than him, and it makes complete sense in-universe why she is.

It’s more than that she’s the main character or that she’s in a show where there’s a girl targeted demographic. 

Ladybug is the leader, the one who wins the battles because of the plans she comes up with.

She swooped in and rescued the Mayor’s daughter in front of all of Paris and when everyone was cowering before Hawkmoth, she alone stood up against him and stunned them all by symbolically demolishing the “face of terror.” And then afterwards gave a heroic speech that gave them hope and cemented their trust in both her and Chat Noir. 

Not only can she purify the Akuma victims, but it’s because of her healing powers that she and especially Chat, will never have to worry about collateral damages or facing law suits over them, which probably helps the public be more forgiving towards Akuma victims when there’s no lasting devastation to deal with. This is a pretty common trope in superhero stories like in Captain America: Civil War, the destruction from Man of Steel being the set up for Batman vs Superman, and why the heroes in the Incredibles had to retire, but because of Ladybug this will never be an issue.

She has the power to bring people back from the mcfreaking DEAD!!!! (Seriously please think about that, like I honestly wouldn’t be surprised if there was some weird religious cult worshiping Ladybug because of that)

And yes people have died in this show.

In a building this size there had to have been people inside it. Probably barricading themselves while Stone Heart is rampaging outside.

aaaaaand they’re definitely dead (or severely injured in the least).

But they’re alive now because Ladybug brought them back, and again this helps the public be more forgiving towards the Akuma victims because no one really “died or got hurt.” 

Remember back in the Origins episode, where Officer Roger actually got injured from Stone Heart and how we saw everyone giving Ivan a hard time afterwards?

Of course this was before Ladybug used her Miraculous Cure and healed all the damage/injuries. This also means that no vengeful citizens will go after the Akuma victims or the heroes in a heartbroken rage of losing a loved one, which is good since they’d be really easy prey for Hawkmoth and it would only ensue an endless cycle of mourning Akumas. 

In fact if Ladybug didn’t have those powers, there’d probably be much more pressure on her and Chat to either defeat Hawkmoth for good or to give their miraculous to him to end it all. 

There’s also the possibility that there’d be attempts to put past Akuma victims on trial, depending on the damage they’ve left, physical or emotional. Even if they were mind controlled, it’s harder to appease with that when you’re left with the wreckage and until Ladybug and Chat Noir capture Hawkmoth they’d probably want someone to blame.

And all the big Ladybug fans have all been girls. Alya, Chloe, and Manon who like in real life are inspired by a powerful female figure and not only admire her, but also want to be like her (Chloe who cosplays and roleplays as her, Alya who from the beginning had an interest in super heroines and made a point to write about a strong fictional female character for the movie in Horrificator, and Manon who wanted the Ladybug doll so much she didn’t care that she had a torn arm).

So basically while it’s always great to appreciate Chat Noir, I don’t believe that he’s necessarily underappreciated by Paris. People respect him and even if Ladybug is more popular it’s not as if it’s undeserved or unreasonable. And above all, she has never taken all the credit herself: from the very beginning of their partnership where she emphasized to Paris that they’ll both do everything they can to help and all throughout the series!

And as for Chat himself, he seems pretty satisfied with all this. People generally love him and Ladybug repeatedly reaffirms that they are a team, that even if their popularity isn’t equal they both know that they are equal to each other, and he can openly enjoy his freedom that he doesn’t have as Adrien Agreste.

So yeah, he’s doing okay.

[Edit] TL;DR: Just because Ladybug is more popular than Chat doesn’t mean that he’s hated and there are very valid reasons as to why she is more popular than him. And ultimately? It doesn’t matter. Not to Ladybug or Chat.

[Edit 2] : Please read my post relating to this topic


The Sophomore

Inside Choices is a behind-the-scenes blog from the Pixelberry team!

Last month, The Freshman ended on a high note at the Aurora music festival after a road trip with your friends. Now it’s time to head back to school in The Sophomore! To make The Sophomore happen, the team behind The Freshman worked around the clock to set the scene for your second year of college. With the new book out in the wild, I managed to grab its writers for a few questions:

What does The Sophomore have in store for everyone?

Chelsa: We don’t want to spill all the beans, but I think we can safely say that it’s going to be a whole lot of fun! Sophomore year is when a lot of people work on finding themselves and figuring out their passions. We really tried to progress the storyline with the idea that these characters have been together at Hartfeld for over a year and show that through their personal and professional growth.

What’s new and different about The Sophomore? How does The Sophomore put a fresh spin on The Freshman?

Saran: All your favorite characters will be back, but they’re slowly growing and changing, of course. We’re introducing a new ‘encouragement’ system that allows you to help your friends follow their dreams—and they’ll be inclined to help you in return. The biggest new feature is the introduction of the closet where you can see the full head-to-toe look of your outfit, just like in #LoveHacks. We’re also really excited about some new songs for the soundtrack debuting in this book!

Will we be meeting any new friends? Love interests? *wink wink*

Maya: It wouldn’t be a Sophomore book if you didn’t! There are some new faces coming in this book, both friends and enemies alike. As far as love interests go, you’ll just have to play and find out. Some Freshman players already know who your emerging love interest is, and boy do we have plans for her. There may even be new possibilities for some of your single friends!

What I loved about The Freshman was the way a group of unlikely friends were there for each other through the ups and downs of college life. More serious topics have been tackled in recent books. Can you talk a little bit about that?

Saran: Be warned: Spoilers up through Freshman Book 4 ahead! I think the college years are important for many because it’s a time of self-discovery and personal growth. In the last book, we delved into Zack’s breakup, Zig coming out to your friends as bisexual, and Becca struggling with her parents’ divorce. We wanted to show that these are part of the normal ups and downs of life. For players with similar experiences, we hope they’ll see that they’re not alone and others have gone through the same things.

Chelsa: I personally feel pretty lucky that the rest of my team feels as passionate and dedicated to some of these more delicate issues as I do. I suffer from anxiety myself, and have had many friends suffer similar breakdowns to the ones that haunt Zack in book four, and I hope that we showed people that it’s really, really important to create a conversation about it, especially with the people that love you.

Maya: It feels great when you’re represented in media you care about, and when it comes to bisexuality, too often it’s a sexuality that’s erased or skirted around. Regarding Zack, it was heartwarming to see how many players picked up on what he was experiencing and were full of support. We want to continue trying our best to dispel stigmas through our writing.

Who’s your favorite character to write in The Freshman (well, now The Sophomore)?

Chelsa: My favorite character is Zig, definitely! I had so much fun putting together his look and personality when he was created for Book 3. I even have some Tumblr fanart of him as my phone background right now.

Saran: I’ve always been a fan of Twombly, myself! I appreciate her friendliness and comedic relief.

Maya: Becca! I’m so excited about the story arc we have planned for her in The Sophomore. She can be such a brat, but since meeting you, she’s developed this inexplicable urge to sometimes be… nice? What in the world is happening to her?!

For some of us, playing The Sophomore means reliving our college years. What was your favorite part of college?

Chelsa: Probably my Freshman year when I lived in the college dorms. One of the crappy things about adulting is all of your friends are busy with their careers, or live in different cities, or are getting married. I miss the days where if you were bored, you just went and knocked on the door next to you.

Maya: I personally really enjoyed my classes - what a nerd!! I also loved finding myself in this new place where I could be whoever I wanted. I remember walking to class at the beginning of my freshman year and telling myself ‘you are a smart, confident, beautiful person, and nobody here knows you well enough to think otherwise’. I basically faked it until I felt it, and then continued to build this sense of self throughout college.

Any tips or wisdom for current college students?

Chelsa: Something I still think works well for me outside of school is to remember to give yourself a break every once in a while. Sometimes the best way to study for a test or finish an essay is to take a step back and do something you enjoy for a little while. Staring at the same problem for hours doesn’t help you solve that problem. Also, if you’re not a morning person, don’t take a 7 am class. You will not get up for that 7 am class.

Saran: Get more sleep, don’t skip class, and take advantage of all the opportunities around you (seriously, there are endless resources on campus for finding internships, residencies, study abroad programs, grants, and more, and tons of people who will help you with any of them). Go forth and conquer!

To everyone reading along, be sure to check your game for new weekly chapters and more. The summer isn’t over yet, and we’ve got more on the way! 💕


community appreciation week 📚 day one - favorite character  

you’re afraid you won’t fit in. you’re afraid you’ll be alone. great news! you share that with all of us. so you’ll never be alone, and you’ll always fit in.

Am I the only one who loves her eyes? Because I think we need to talk more about Makoto’s eyes. These eyes show so much about her, and express so much emotion throughout Persona 5. From innocence and fear, to power and courage, Makoto’s eyes are always so on point. I love her character, and I love her eyes. This girl deserves the world, please appreciate her.

anonymous asked:

Yeah, but what's the point of shipping Levi with Hanji or anybody else, when Eruri is already like practically canon ??????

This is so lame, that’d be like me saying “oh you can’t ship Eruri, ‘cause Erwin is dead”, which frankly makes no sense whatsoever. And maybe you thought i’d react to this like “WTF FUCK YOU”, but i won’t. Instead i’ll just give you a lot of boring reasons why this was so lame. 

1)The only 100% canon ship in SnK is Yumikuri and we all know it. And that’s because the editor said it himself. The only ones who can say anything is canon is Isayama, the editor and, at some extent, the animators. PS: I’m talking about relationship with reciprocity, because okay Bert loved Annie, but we don’t know if it’s like that the other way around.. 

2)We can all have our reasons to believe a certain ship is closer to being canon. I have my reasons to believe Levihan makes sense, you have your reasons for Eruri and someone may have their own reasons for Ereri or Rivetra or whatever and… you know what? They are all freaking valid! But, at the end of the day, none of us can tell for sure. 

3)I respect Eruri and theirshippers a lot, specially the ones that do fan art because DAMN THEY’RE TALENTED. And yeah, there’s plenty of reasons to ship them. They have a beautiful and pure bond which honestly makes cry, whenever i see those amazing fanarts i get the feels. I personally think you don’t have to ship something romantically, to appreciate its value. Personally, i like Eruri without the romance, ‘cause for me friendship can be even more important than romantic love. I like the idea of Levi being devoted to him without anything romantic intended, because it makes it purer to my eyes. And if you think otherwise that’s totally fine.

4)I think shipping should be fun, sometimes we take it too seriously. Let’s remember the characters aren’t real, so if someone wanna ship Levi with goddamn Pixis is their own fucking decision. And more important than that, SnK isn’t about romance. I don’t want it to be like that! Subtle romance is more interesting in this kind of genre. For me, that Levi cares for Hanji is all the canon romance i need. I’m not gonna lie, if Isayama shows us someday that they’re a couple i’ll be so excited,  get all fangirl and shit, but i don’t need it to happen. I like SnK just the way it is, i don’t want it to become a shoujo or something lmfao

5)You know what i’ve discovered about shipping? You see, some people think LEVIHAN MAKES NO SENSE, THEY’RE TOO DIFFERENT… and i’ve noticed it has to do with personal experience and our own way of seeing the characters. Like the way i comprehend Levi is very different from the way that you or anyone does it. Example: Ereri shippers usually see Levi as this tough guy, in fics he’s always like rich and sorta into S&M lol and has this really dominant personality, for Eruri shippers Levi is this really in love devoted guy, generally the way they portray Levi is REALLY romantic, he’s usually mesmerized by Erwin. And both of those Levi aren’t the Levi i perceive. Like i’ve said before, for me he’s a regular dude, not particularly romantic nor particularly dominant, he’s just a guy. Same goes for Hanji, some people see her as a crazy scientist, i see her as an intelligent and strong commander with a big heart. That’s why we all ship different things and we all have different reasons. The reasons you an Eruri shipper can tell me for them being canon, maybe aren’t reasons from my point of view and this works the other way around. And i love the fact that we all perceive the characters differently because it enriches the fandom. For example, i REALLY like some Ereri fics, some of them are so much fun! And they always make Levi so hot which is highly appreciated. But they aren’t my OTP, i don’t connect with it. And it’s fine if someone doesn’t connect with Levihan, hell, it’s fine if they’re the NOTP. It’s all good, man. Stop caring so much about these kind of stuff and enjoy SnK, enjoy shipping, enjoy the feels, enjoy the plot, enjoy the writing, enjoy the art style, enjoy chatting with fans who have different ideas than you and just chill.

Okay, but are we not gonna talk about the fact that Alice Cooper is redeeming herself, especially in this recent episode?

Because I loved what she did in this episode. I know everyone is focused on the ship wars with Bughead, Beronica, etc. But Alice really tried to be there for her daughters.
(Spoilers ahead, obviously)
Now, I think the fandom can agree that Alice can be really, REALLY overbearing and can be an overall bitch sometimes, but this episode really opened up more of her character, especially when showing how vulnerable she is. She is, afterall, a mother first and foremost. Although I did hate her character, I have grown an immense amount of respect and sympathy for her.

She wants to keep Polly safe. Polly is her little girl. She wants to be there for her, but unfortunately, doesn’t see the best ways in handling it. Betty tries to make her see what the right thing for her to do was to support Polly and be there for her no matter who the baby’s father was or what other family also tied into this. Betty invited Alice to Polly’s baby shower, and I almost thought that she wasn’t going to show. I thought, ‘Alice Cooper will have a stick up her butt and show once more how she is not a good, supportive mother.’
BUT THEN, she showed up. She came to her daughter’s baby shower and tried to be super supportive. She was doing so well too, until she got into it with the Blossoms once more.
HOWEVER, she redeemed herself (in my opinion at least), on how she really is just a scared mother trying to protect and look out for her child. Did she handle it the best way before? Absolutely not. But you can see she wants to try harder for her.

And THEN, when Polly exposed to her that Mr. Cooper tried to basically set an appointment for Polly to rid of her unborn child, you could see in that moment that Alice Cooper became absolutely LIVID.
She confronted Mr. Cooper about it and told him off! She told him how ridiculous he was, how horrible he was for trying to do such a thing to their daughter, and when he tried justifying that, she was NOT HAVING ANY OF HIS BULLSHIT. She kicked him out of the house. If he wasn’t going to be a loving, supporting father to his own child, just because of an age old feud, then he wasn’t wanted there any longer. She wanted the house to be safe for her daughter and her grandchild(or grandchildren; we’ll find out soon enough).
That was such a beautiful thing for us to see. It brought so much character development and showed more of who Alice Cooper is and what she is truly like. She is, and always will be, a mother first. And seeing her being protective and their for Polly was touching.
It saddens me that Polly did not end up moving in with her after all, but I have the feeling that Alice Cooper is still going to be there for Polly, no matter what.


Naomi Nagata Appreciation Week: Day One | Moment I Fell in Love With Naomi

Now that I’m home and finished, I can yell about how much I love Naomi. Like with Alex, I read the books first, and loved Naomi from the moment I laid eyes on Dominique (who… is… so good. Naomi always in my heart.).

From the moment Naomi told Holden off for not signing off on her paperwork I loved her. She hit every note in just one episode. Her private vulnerability, her honesty, her sharp wit, her smarts. Naomi was beautiful and beautifully done. 

Naomi is a character who has been through so much, hit such lows that it’s hard to believe she made it here, the strong woman she is. And yet… voila. She’s one of my favorite characters, and this entire episode she really makes an impression without really showing all her cards. I love her so much. She’s always going to be a favorite of mine. 

What  I liked about 12x12

(first notes after watching)

Holy hell, what a ride! I loved every second of this.

—————————I LOVE YOU!!!!! But I’m getting ahead of myself …—————————-

Tarantino: As a kid of the 90s, these movies were the benchmark for great cinema for me. So I enjoyed this a great deal. From the camera angles to the music cues to that awesome slomo of Dean, Sam, Mary, Wally and Cas to the small details like the glowing box Crowley gave to Ramiel (as a throwback to the suitcase in Pulp Fiction). At no point did it feel like a cheap copy but always like a love letter and an homage. Well done, Davy Perez and Richard Speight jr.

Cinematography: Which brings me to my next point – that camera work! I mean we know the attention to detail is out of the park with this show, but the shots in the diner and the fight scenes in Ramiel’s house were fantastic even by those standards. Great editing, too! The first hard cut from the diner to Ramiel’s house stands out, and the cuts to the music for Crowley’s first meeting with the prince of hell.

Mythology: Speaking of that. It’s always a gamble to bring new adversaries into play, but I think Davy Perez did a very good job with this. The background for the princes fit well into canon as far as I can see (I’ll have to consult the verdict of the specialists later) and sounded coherent. Ramiel was a three-dimensional villain and the actor did an amazing job! Favorite line: “Three humans with one good liver between them and a busted up angel” – new catchphrase!!! And there are two more princes – so much new material!

Mary: Even if I don’t like her working behind the boys’ backs, I appreciate that she’s getting her own storyline and the way she held her ground against Mr. Ketch. Her just driving over Ramiel was awesome, too.

Crowley ex machina: That was a great twist imo and the throwback to his history with Ramiel was well done, too. I always like to see characters get fleshed out through good storytelling. Just as we saw with Rowena last week, Crowley showed a massive development with this is my book, because the wise thing to do would have been to vanish and hide from Ramiel. Also: “What’s up with feathers?”

CAAAAAAAASSS: Wow, that hurt. “You’ve changed me.” *Gross sobbing* Seriously, that was the best kind of heart-wrenching angst. The line about how this was the best part of his life … I don’t think he stated it that clear before. Misha was amazing and all that gore looked positively disgusting – kudos to the make-up department!

Cas and Dean: (Cas looks at Sam, then Mary) YOU’RE MY FAMILY. (looks down, cut to Dean, who doesn’t meet his eye). I LOVE YOU. (still Dean, still not looking at Cas, lips moving as if he wants to say something) I LOVE ALL OF YOU. (Dean again, then Sam). AAHHHH, the feels. I’m gonna need every slow motion analysis of this scene as soon as I post this and can go through my dash. And: “No.” - “Yes.” And: “Let’s go home!!!!!!!!!”

Bonus points: I liked Wally as a character and he gave a good outside view on the chaos that is the Winchesters’ life+++Lucifer manipulating Crowley – great ending scene+++”Urination. I understand. “ Cas knowing about human things…+++”When do you get off?”- “Whenever I can.” The one good line in that whole mess with Mandy. +++ THE MUSIC+++I LOVE YOU!

I remember three years ago when Candice got a lot of hate bc of being black and playing a white character. In cons and interviews, she would always get asked about the non-existent brother/sister storyline between Iris and Barry and she would always have to face a lot of backlash and racism on how she looked. However, Candice always dealt the haters with grace and kindness and so much courage that somewhere along the ¾ years I have started to admire her as a person. What I am trying to say is that I am so proud of Candice and the achievement, love and appreciation she has received because she deserves every bit of. Today is a Saturn Award, I hope in the future there is an Emmy because she deserves it guys, she really does :’)

Ok so… thoughts. The Cave episode was a really great start - character development in Star! The girl is clearly more bothered… you can just tell. Trickstar didn’t have much going on. I hope future episodes get much deeper into our questions….

Thoughts on Star: she definitely started off a bit… different this round. I feel like she’s growing up a little bit. After what happened with Glossaryck and Marco she probably started to realize that she can’t “always” get what she wants. Star will receive a lot of growth in terms of owning her powers…

Glossaryck: definitely appreciate what they did to this character, he literally just wants pudding. Does he give a shit about anything but pudding? No. Which is cool. Remember Star, reality hurts, and you can’t always get what you want. She will learn and grow up … a lot from this experience.

Thoughts on Marco: I didn’t really get why he was so passive on the phone with Jackie. As I remember my first love… my heart sang every time I spoke to my first boyfriend, anything about him made me feel giddy. It looks like Jackie really likes Marco but he’s not too into it at this point. Current “generation” of kids is probably into “anyone can ask anyone out” but I still feel like MARCO should have asked Jackie out, MARCO should have planned a good night… In real life shit does not work like that, girls who do that don’t keep guys interested (speaking from personal experience). But I feel like I’m reading too much into this and the producers of this show are just trying to make it “trendy” and “stay away from the traditional norm” because they are cool, modern and different like that :)). Marco definitely likes Star, come on, he can’t even leave her side.

Future Starco: definitely not happening this season. They will keep throwing hints here and there to drive us crazy :) but (sadly) I feel like this realization will only come at the end of the show… as much as I want them to just get together and develop their relationship. We need to remember that if they get together before the last episode of the show… that’s going to be really out of the norm for Disney.
What I want to see: Star growing up as an independent princess. I want her to realize how serious she needs to be about her magic in order to go against Ludo (who is stronger technically if he learns all the spells in the book). I want more development between Marco and Jackie… so that we realize that Marco is actually serious about his intentions. Without a good story / character development between Jarco, STarco will bee too plain / blend. And finally, instead of little STarco hints here and there I feel like the producers can start showing more at this point… We already know Star has a thing for Marco, make her blush ;)

Well, my two cents… let’s see where this show goes in the next month!

inspiratedd  asked:

Im a sucker for cuddling.. that jerza cuddle... i looked at it for 5 h now😳😍 Maybe another? They deserve it 😭

Read on AO3

Alright, this is my second (my apology gift, really, it’s over 5000 words of fluff) for Shay, in which I attempt to tackle one of her favorite tropes (characters A and B have to stay at a hotel and there’s only one room with one bed)

once again - thanks to @the-musical-alchemist​ for listening to me flip out about how to write this, I appreciate it always, Gio ;-;

I said it already, but I’ll say it again - Shay, you’re one of the greatest people I’ve ever met, simply because of who you are - you’re always kind, passionate, thoughtful, and are extremely talented and witty.  In short, you’re just incredibly wonderful.  Thank you so much for being you, and have the happiest birthday possible.  Hey, now you can rent a car and come visit me!!!

“Are you kidding me,” Roy grumbles, tightening his grasp on his small bag as he stomps his snow-packed boots on the porch of the building.  “Of course Grumman sends us to the most remote town, in the dead of winter, splits up our team, and gets us reservations in what has to be the absolute filthiest looking place I’ve ever seen.”

“Relax, sir,” Riza responds.  She flexes her frozen hands to try to regain feeling in her numb fingertips as she switches her bag from left to right.  “You’ve seen the rest of this town; the entire place just doesn’t have a lot of money.  I’m sure the inside is nicer.”

“Whatever you say, Captain,” he retorts.  Riza sighs at his snarky-tone, but doesn’t challenge him, knowing that the last thing that she needed was to argue with her superior officer when they were both cold, hungry, and exhausted.

*Feedback is always appreciated!*

You were uneasy the entire drive to the middle of nowhere- all you needed was a secluded spot where Dean couldn’t find you. Eventually, after a few hours of driving around anxiously, you settled for an abandoned warehouse somewhere south of Kentucky. 

Parking your Jeep in a grassy patch near the entrance, you walked around to the trunk and pulled out a machete, and a hunting knife which you tucked at your side for good measure. 

When Sam had killed the first hellhound, it had been a surprise to both you and Dean- because his brother was supposed to be the one to do it. But when he’d walked out of that barn, covered in hellhound goop and with a shit-eating grin on his face, you both had been wrong. In that moment, nobody knew what the trials would bring, and none of you dared to guess the worst, so you’d just accepted that Sam had taken them on instead of Dean. Little did you know it would end up like it did. 

Along with the weapons, you grabbed a few things necessary for summoning a crossroads demon and threw them into a bag. Before closing the trunk and approaching the abandoned building, you slung the pack over your shoulder and double checked your knife and machete- you needed to be able to pull them out quickly as soon as the hellhound arrived.

this is quick, mostly bc im kind of tired of writing this. i almost want to just post the ending (since that was the chapter i wrote first before everything else) but i think everything will tie in together better if i push myself to write the previous parts as well. i haven’t taken science since high school and whatever knowledge of bio i had has been buried within the confines of my brain underneath all the economics/business courses i’ve been taking for the past 2 years lol. in addition to not knowing much about the norwegian hs curriculum beyond a quick google search, please bear in mind i have no idea how complicated these concepts are as they get taught in class so im just gonna gloss over them. evolution was my least favourite unit in bio as well so i thought i’d just go with it for this. sana i guess might be slightly ooc but im trying my hardest to stay true to her character as depicted in the show bc that is the sana that i fell in love with. as always thoughts and comments are appreciated!

“…tural selection is one of the basic mechanisms of evolution, along with mutation, migration, and genetic drift. Darwin’s grand idea of evolution by natural selection is relativel…”

Sana mindlessly read through the passages in her textbook, trying to understand the highlighted concepts before divulging into the details and diagrams she had scrawled in her notebook during class. Evolution, which just so happened to be her least favourite unit, was the main topic of next week’s midterm. Knowing that she wouldn’t hear the end of it from Isak unless she managed at least a 5, she pushed herself to power through the last paragraph before taking a well deserved break.

Generally her school work didn’t leave the confines of her bedroom within the house. However, her mother entrusted her with watching over dinner for tonight, causing Sana to set up a study space downstairs on the kitchen dining table. She managed to get an hour’s worth solid perusal of her biology textbook’s chapter on evolution, completing two lines of her review notes before giving up in favour of browsing her timeline and watching old Kardashian videos on Youtube. When Kim’s exaggerated crying proved to be unbearable, she switched back to her homework. As she started to review the section on natural selection for the fourth time, the steady thrum of music began to sound throughout the house, disturbing her rhythm. Irritated, she stood up and barged into the living room ready to tell Elias off.

“Elias! Turn down the music I’m trying to study!” she yelled, only to see a figure that definitely wasn’t Elias jump from her voice. He looked at her guiltily, turning the knob on the speaker until the music lowered to a steady hum in the background.

One Shot Masterlist

It was rare to have a moment of peace and quiet in the Avenger Tower. So, when everyone else was out on missions or errands, you took advantage of the empty common room. You snuggled closer to your boyfriend as you sipped hot chocolate and watched your favorite Netflix show.

“I still do not understand what is so special about this Flash character,” Pietro grumbled.

“Um, he’s super fast and saves the world,” you replied, as if it was obvious.

“I do those things too!” he exclaimed.

“You can run fast,” you admitted, “but you like to cause a lot of mischief too.”

“That makes life more fun, prinţesă.” He wrapped his arms around your shoulders and pulled you in for a sweet kiss. “I bet you didn’t see that coming,” he whispered as he nuzzled your neck.

You pulled away and laughed. “You really need a new pick up line, Piet.”

Can I Have This Dance? (Chris x MC)

Originally posted by moonlightkajal

Prompt: Round 14 of ChoicesCreates–Disney Songs! Thank you again @hollyashton for letting me host! It’s been amazing! :)The song for this one is “Can I Have This Dance?” from High School Musical 3!

Summary: Chris has to work on the last dance of senior year, and MC contemplates what the future of their relationship will hold.

*Author’s Note* This is my second submission for this week’s ChoicesCreates. I literally wrote this in 20 minutes just so  could get it in by the deadline. haha I’ve never written Chris x MC before, so I apologize if this is terrible or if I didn’t get their characters right! Feedback is always welcomed and greatly appreciated! It really helps and inspires artists and authors. WIthout further ado, I hope you enjoy!


She couldn’t help the disappointment she felt as she arrived home to find their shared apartment empty. Tonight had been the last dance of the semester, something she’d been looking forward to for months, but her excitement had been dashed, however, when she’d found out that Chris would have to work. She had gone, after much convincing from Zack, but had left early, feeling incredibly lonely ad uncomfortable surrounded by so many couples. She didn’t blame Chris for not being there—his job was important—but she felt that as college was coming to an end for them, the less they got to see of each other. She didn’t know what the future held for her—or them—and it scared her. She loved Chris with everything she had, but she’d seen even the most in love people grow apart and fade away.

has it ever occurred to you guys that you judge female characters not in the same way you do male characters you always set much higher standards for women under the name of “equality” like I have never seen a male character, who is supposed to be a chosen one, being reduced to shit when he gets a love interest. no male character becomes worthless when they find their love so whats wrong with females having love interets? why do you appreciate them only until they fall in love? love is a strength for one and a weakness for another but before it all its human and its real. falling in love wont reduce any female characters importance or make her weak so just fuck off

Hi! I just wanted to say that your post about writing female characters in control of their sexuality was super helpful! I'm a mostly fanfic writer, but I have one OC in one of the series I'm working on, and that was totally the aim for her. And I'm so glad you wrote it out, it's amazing!!!! So many of your posts are super helpful, thank you for everything you're doing and sharing!

Thank you so much!  I’m so glad I was able to help, and comments like these are always appreciated.  <3
