but no one takes them seriously anyway

What we really need is an adaptation of the original 1740 The Beauty and the Beast

So were you aware that the The Beauty and the Beast story we all know is a heavily abridged and rewritten version of a much longer novella by Gabrielle-Suzanne Barbot de Villeneuve?  And that a lot of the plot holes existing in the current versions exist because the 1756 rewrite cut out the second half of the novella, which consisted entirely of the elaborate backstory that explains all the weird shit that happened before?  And that the elaborate backstory is presented in a way that’s kind of boring because the novel had only just been invented in 1740 and no one knew how they worked yet, but contains a bazillion awesome ideas that beg for a modern retelling?  And that you are probably not aware that the modern world needs this story like air but the modern world absolutely needs this story like air?  Allow me to explain:

The totally awesome elaborate backstory that explains Beauty and the Beast

  • Once upon a time there was a king, a queen, and their only son
  • But while the prince was still in his infancy, in a neat reversal of how these fairy tales usually go, the king tragically died, leaving his wife to act as Regent until their son reaches maturity
  • Unfortunately, the rulers of all the lands surrounding them go, “Hmm, the kingdom is ruled by a woman now, it must be weak, time for an invasion!”
  • And the Queen goes, “Well, if I let some general fight all these battles for me, he’ll totally amass enough fame and power to make a bid for the throne; if I want to protect my son’s crown, I have no choice but to take up arms and lead the troops myself!
  • (Btw, I want to stress that this woman is not Eowyn or Boudica and nothing in the way her story is presented suggests that she had any interest martial exploits before or in any way came to enjoy them during these battles.  This is a perfectly ordinary court lady who would much rather be embroidering altar covers for the royal chapel and playing with her child until necessity made her go, “Oh no, this sucks, I guess I have to become a Warrior Queen now” and she just happened to kick ass at it anyway.)
  • And the Queen totally kicked ass, but the whole “twice as good for half the credit” thing meant that no matter how many battles she won, potential enemies refused to take her and her army seriously until she had defeated them so no sooner would she fend off one invasion than another one would pop up on a different border.
  • So she spent the majority of her young son’s life away from the castle leading armies, but it was OK because she left him in the care of her two best friends, who just happen to be fairies!  This was an awesome idea because a) fairies have magic, and therefore are like the best people to protect the prince from any threats and b) fairies consider themselves to be so above humanity that the lowest fairy outranks the highest mortal, so they’d have no interest in taking a human throne.  Good thing they were both good fairies instead of one good and one evil one!
  • (Spoiler:  they were not both good fairies.)
  • So the two fairies basically take turns raising the prince until he’s old enough to rule.  And on the eve of his twenty-first birthday, the evil older one comes into the prince’s bedroom.
  • “So listen, kid.  You’re about to become king, your mother’s on her way home from the war to see you crowned, and I have a third piece of good news for you!  You see, I’ve actually been spending so much time here lately because Fairyland’s become a bit too hot to hold me for reasons totally not related to me being secretly evil.  And if I have to hang in the human world, I might as well reside in the upper echelons of it, so even though as a powerful fairy I completely eclipse your puny human status in a staggeringly unimaginable way, since you’re about to be king and since my premonition that I should stick this whole guardianship thing out because you would be hot one day has totally proved accurate (go me), I will graciously lower myself to allowing you to marry me.  Please feel free to grovel at my feet in gratitude.  (Btw, we can totally start the wedding night now, we’ll tell your mother about it when she arrives tomorrow.)”

B U R N O U T  1 0 1 // what it is and how the fuck to fix it 

So, you’ve been really stressed/anxious/exhausted and all of a sudden you’re feeling unmotivated/apathetic/frustrated? Congratulations, it’s looks like you’ve burned yourself out!

What is burnout?

Normally, burnout occurs after an extended period of excess. The breaking point is different for everyone; some may cave after a week of finals, for others it may take months or even years. Symptoms of burnout include, but are not limited to:

- Apathy/disinterest

- Short attention span, difficulty concentrating, switching between tasks frequently 

- Frustration with others, your work, or yourself

- Depression, low mood, anxiety 

Shit, that’s me! How do I solve it?

- Start small, and ease yourself back into the swing of things 

  • Make note of the stuff you absolutely unavoidably have to to do with immediate urgency. Order in terms of immediacy as well as workload. So give credit for tasks both urgent and time consuming. If it doesn’t need to be done (either partially or completely) right this very minute, don’t worry about it. 
  • Break big tasks down into little tasks and tackle them one at a time. Reward yourself upon completion, but keep it reasonable. One episode of Parks and Rec is okay; a whole series is not. 

- Reestablish a routine

  • As insanely fantastic as it is, laying in bed all day is not going to get you anywhere. Set a routine, and stick to it; wake up at a consistent time and actually get out of bed, accomplish a few things each day (but they don’t have to be academic - laundry, taking a walk or vacuuming your bedroom) and stay out of bed except for when you’re sleeping. 
  • Naps are ok too though, but keep them short and don’t start after 3pm because you won’t be able to get to sleep at a human hour that night. 

- Take care of yourself

  • Give priority to maintaining healthy and normal sleep, eating, and self-care habits. You’re going to be useless if you’re exhausted, hungry, and grimy. 
  • Try to identify why you’re burnt out. Yes, you had two weeks of back-to-back exams. But is there anything you could have done differently? Could you have started studying earlier, made revision materials as you went, reduced or delegated other commitments? While this isn’t necessarily cure for burnout, it’s crucial to preventing another episode further on down the line. And after all, they say prevention is the best medicine. 

- Ask for help!!

  • Counsellors (academic and therapeutic) are there for your use. Take advantage of them, especially if they’re provided free of charge by your institution! They’ve got a lot of experience, and could impart some seriously useful wisdom about managing workloads, maintaining your sanity and resources if you really are struggling.
  • Supportive family; not everyone is lucky enough to have one, but if you do, make sure they know you’re under duress and see if they can help in anyway - letting you get off chores or offering to help with your place if you’ve moved out, providing sustenance, or just offering an ear for you to moan and rant and talk it out. 
  • Make sure there’s nothing underlying that’s causing your anxiety/depression/low mood, and if you suspect there is talk to your doctor!
The Types and Drinking Water

ENFP: Drinks from the toilet. It wasn’t even a dare or anything; they just wanted to know what it tasted like.

ENTP: “h20? More like h2-YO! Hahaha drink your water kids.”

INFP: Misses their entire mouth. Their over-sized sweater is utterly soaked, almost as if their nipples are tiny water falls. Shocked at this sudden development, they drop the glass and it shatters, covering the kitchen floor. Trying to tiptoe to safety, they carelessly slip on the water and onto the broken glass, nearly bleeding to death. As soon as they get discharged from the hospital they’re applying for an infomercial.

ESFP: Sticks their face right under the tap and desperately laps up the water like some kind of deranged and unsettlingly large house cat.

INTJ: * sips water* “ Disgusting. Tastes like licking a car. And you know why? The water we drink contains small traces of iron, zinc, copper, manganese and other metals. And you know who’s fault that is? Our inCOMPETENT GOVERNMENT.  THEY NEED TO STEP UP TO THE PLATE AND GET THEIR SH** TOGETHER. THEY’VE BEEN LYING TO US AS A NATION FROM THE BEGINNING OF TIME AND IT’S TIME FOR A CHANGE. 

See more of my conspiracy theories on my tumblr blog @anti-feminism-pro-atheism ( the one with red and black theme and the Rainbow Dash icon).”

ISFJ: Has been refusing offers of a glass of water from their friend’s parent for 10 hours now and they’re really reaching their limit. Will probably resolve to drinking their pee Bear Grylls style.

ESTP: Kicks off the faucet, throws it through the window, screams, and lets the broken faucet drench them all the way from their flat peak cap to their $400 basketball shoes, their perfect abs showing through their wet t-shirt. Uploads it to vine.

INTP: * aggressively sips water through a Krazy Straw* SUCC  ( ͡ʘ ͜ʖ ͡ʘ) 

ENFJ: *Makes it into Fit Tea™* “ This flattened my stomach, cleared my skin, watered my crops, improved my grades, brought Shakespeare back from the dead, got my parents back together, stopped war, solved poverty, and it tastes like Shrek in drink form GREAT. A discount code is in the description, guys! :D.”

ENTJ: Drinks the tears of all those ignorant fools they destroyed in the Spelling Bee last week. 

ISTP: They’re probably chained to a pillar in some empty warehouse as a result of a drug scandal. The only sustenance they receive is a mug of muddy water brought to them by a man in an anonymous mask twice a day. Free them.

INFJ: “Is this vegan?”

ISFP: Drinks the morning dew off the tulips and honeysuckle. It may sound whimsical in theory, but in reality seeing grown adult desperately licking wet grass and flowers in the town park is a rather unsettling experience. 

ESFJ: “Umm, tap water? No thanks. I only drink from my $20000 ultra healing magical energy quinoa infused crystals water filter I got off an infomercial thank you very much. The lady in the commercial says tap water gives you cancer and I trust her judgement. I even have her book, “ “vaccine” and “autisms” both haave six letter. Coinsidance? I think noot.”, wanna borrow it?”       

ISTJ: * Harry Potter Puppet Pals Snape voice* Today I drank some water for my breakfast. It was flavourless and watery. I thought of my mother. I cried.

ESTJ: Has one of those drink bottles with times written at different levels on the side to show you how much water you should be drinking throughout the day. It gives them a feeling of superiority knowing that their life is slightly more organised than everyone else.

guys so you know how allura couldn’t activate the blue lion when she was hiding from lotor?
the lion only listened to her about when she was doubting her position as the paladin.

and guess who else has deeply concerning self consciousness?
yeah, lance.

one thing i wish allura had pointed out was that the reason Blue chose lance is because the lion is like a motherly type. because lance has potential.

i hope season 4 puts lance in a corner and the team finally realizes how much doubt he has about himself.

i can tell he’s been trying to hint to them through the whole third season, but no one seems to take it seriously. keith, being the… not most reliable source for consolation, tried to comfort lance a bit, but never really assured lance of his importance in the team.

anyways, in one of the interviews they said that lance would have a much longer arc than the other paladins. im so happy for my boy :’)
season 4 better deliver, DreamWorks.

A/N: an anon requested a poly!hamilsquad x reader soulmate au and i had no idea how to do it so it’s been in my inbox for like a month. im so sorry i took so long ;-; i never posted this late (or early before so enjoy!)


“Y/N, for crying out loud, aren’t you the tiniest bit curious as to who it might be? I mean, come on, you have an incomplete triangle on your wrist!” Angelica said, trying to pull up your sleeve. You swatted her hand away, pushing it back down. She always pestered you about the mark on your wrist. Since she does not have one of her own, she tells you that she lives vicariously through you.

There were only a handful of people in the world that had markings on their skin. It was what scientists called soulmate links, people you were meant to be with. Unfortunately for you, and this was your opinion, you hated being one of the few to have it. You didn’t believe in people “meant to be together”, and would rather just find someone that you loved for who they are, not what your skin says.

And the mark on your wrist was so small, it could just be a birthmark.

stan is passively suicidal (stenbrough/reddie and slight stozier)//TW

trigger warning- mentions of self harm and suicide

-this might get sad beware

-so stan just kinda has a bleak outlook on life

-he likes his birds, his losers, his stuttering boyfriend and that’s about it

-he was really scared about embracing his religion for a long time and it was even worse when he realized he was, in fact, a homosexual

-stan has some mild anxiety and seems very high-strung to any old passerby

-but the losers know that he’s dead inside

-he just is kinda there, only half paying attention

-he’s a very crucial part of the group don’t get me wrong everybody loves and protects stan, but i think he just kinda goes along with everything

-he’s been making jokes about suicide since the start of junior high

-but once he gets into year 9 or around that time he gets diagnosed with depression

-and his parents aren’t exactly the best people to talk to about it because you know just pray it away

-there was one time where richie (who is also mildly depressed and wicked suicidal, but that’s a story for another time) had cut himself a bunch of times and ended up in the hospital for a few days

-and that’s when stan knew that, if he ever tried to kill himself, he would make sure to do it well

-he wouldn’t wake up, he wouldn’t be rescued, he would just die

-and he told that to everybody, not to make richie feel bad or guilty, just to let them all know not to even bother

-and you would think that this would bother bill the most but no, he and stan have had many similar talks late at night where stan explains what’s going on in his head

-but it’s eddie who takes it the hardest

-because eddie’s somebody is there you know?

-eddie’s somebody is hurting himself and breaking inside and nothing eddie’s doing to help is fixing it

-and now the same thing is happening to bill

-and bill is eddie’s best friend and stan is richie’s best friend and that makes the whole situation a thousand times worse

-so imagine that there’s this one time stan doesn’t show up to school

-and he hadn’t called or radioed any of the losers to let them know

-no one answered the door for bill when he came to pick him up that morning

-bill was worried as hell but he felt deep down that stanley was okay

-maybe he was just sick and his parents were at work

-it was just one day right?

-but then one day turned into three days

-and stan has gone full ghost

-bill still doesn’t feel like anything is seriously wrong but he hasn’t slept in a couple days anyway

-eventually he takes a day off of school because his heart literally can’t stand the feeling of being there without stan

-everyone’s tried knocking on the door but no one ever answers

-mike climbed up to stan’s window and peered in to find nobody

-on the fourth day of no stan richie’s fucking done

-eddie was taking it hard, worrying late at night until his chest physically hurt

-but take eddie’s pain and worrying and multiply it by a thousand and add in some suicidal tendencies, that’s what richie’s feeling

-according to eddie (because richie won’t talk to anyone but him) he hasn’t been sleeping or eating and he’s been biting his nails again, something he only does when he’s upset

-so eddie tells richie that they still haven’t heard anything about stan on that fourth night

-and he storms out of his own house and bikes to the uris residence

-eddie’s following close behind, panicking and shouting for him to slow down and think about what he’s doing

-he doesn’t want to entertain the thought that something bad had happened to stan, but if it did he didn’t want richie to be triggered by it

-richie throws his bike down and storms up to the front door, he gets the key out from under the ceramic frog in the front yard and goes in ready to fight someone

-stan’s sitting in his bed with all the curtains drawn, sipping hot chocolate out of a mug shaped like a bird

-he has dark circles around his eyes like he hasn’t slept but that was really all he was doing

-richie had seen this sight before, in stan and in himself

-but no matter what, they always call to let the others know

-“what the fuck, stanley?”

-stan’s confused as to how richie got in the house but he’s not surprised that he showed up

-they’re best friends and you can’t keep shit from your best friend

-“you don’t answer the phone, you’re never in your room when we look through your window, you don’t come to school, and here you are sipping fucking hot chocolate like you’re on vacation”

-“you guys look through my window?”

-“not the point, stan!”

-eddie comes in all out of breath a few minutes later and hears richie shouting

-“richie, it’s not a big deal. i just haven’t been feeling good these past couple days. it happens”

-“and that means you can’t answer the fucking telephone?”

-eddie’s already in the other room calling bill and filling him on what’s happening

-at this point it’s almost a shouting match

-richie’s doing most of the shouting though

-stan is now standing to face his bespectacled friend

-“richie why are you getting so mad? you get sick like this too! you have days you can’t get out of bed and i don’t break into your house and yell at you for it!”

-“because, stanley! i at least let eddie know when i’m down, you left fucking bill in the dark for days! you can’t just disappear for days and not let anyone know if you’re okay! how were we supposed to know you were alive?”

-“richie…..”

-richie’s almost in tears now, gripping stan’s biceps and shaking him lightly

-normally stan would’ve pulled himself away, he’s a lot stronger than richie

-but he saw the look in his friend’s eyes and he knew that richie was seriously hurt

-“we wouldn’t have known whether you were alive or dead because your fucking parents are god knows where, you need to let us know! let me know! i’m your best friend you whore, you have to talk to me!”?

-“i’m sorry rich”

-richie shakes his head, moving to the far corner of the room

-“richie, i’m sorry. i’ll call next time.”

-richie nods as he sucks in his lip and tries really hard not to cry

-“i’m okay.”

-stan pulls richie into the biggest hug of his life, rubbing the smaller boy’s back as he shakes

-“don’t you even try to fucking leave me, uris. you die, i’ll fucking kill you.”

-“i won’t if you won’t, trashmouth”

-eddie eventually comes into the room and takes richie from him, taking over in consoling the sobbing boy

-richie loves stan okay its canon

-all he wants is for him to be alive and okay

-damn

-bill eventually comes over and they all cuddle and watch a movie or something like that

-bev and ben welcome stan with open arms at school the next day

-stan uris feels loved and appreciated and that’s all i want

anonymous asked:

Hey there! 😃 I want to buy my first tarot deck, but first I want to know some things, like, how do you bond with it? How do you get to know it? I'm pretty new hehe😅 oh and is there something else I should know first? Thank you in advance!😄

There are many ways to bond with a tarot deck tbh; I talk more in-depth about it [here]. I don’t just want to copy-paste the same information if it’s already on my blog, ya know?

Here is another post on [Ways to Bond With Your Tarot Deck].

Some other useful tarot posts:

You can find many more useful posts in my [#tarot tag].

Introductory tarot spreads:

I think the big things to keep in mind are…

Go with a deck you feel drawn to / like the art style of. This will help with bonding with it, at least it did in my circumstance. The first big thing I heard about tarot was having to like the cards, at least a bit, because it helps form a connection on its own that can then be built off of.

What sort of art style that is, is up to you. Some people say the cards that feature the traditional tarot symbolism are the easiest and best for beginners, because they try to tell the meaning of the cards in the art itself, so you begin to rely less heavily on the book. Which is great, if you’re into that. If you think you will understand the card readings without the symbols, go ahead and get whatever appeals most to you.

Speaking of the book, it’s okay if you have to flick through it to find card meanings. I’ve been reading for over two years, and my crap memory prevents me from memorizing all 78 card meanings. And it does come with time. I definitely know a good portion of the cards by general memory by now, but not all of them. You are not a bad reader if you still use the book.

Your deck does not need to be gifted to you, or secondhand, for it to be powerful. This was another one that I heard a lot of starting my own tarot journey, and I have bought every single one of my decks. They are all powerful in their own ways, and ridiculously (painfully) accurate. Not everyone has people in their lives who read tarot who can gift them a deck, and some people really like to hold on to their decks anyway. It isn’t necessary.

It will take time and practice. I was doubtful of all my readings at first too, but seriously, the more you use them, the more familiar you get with the cards, the easier it will be to tell what they might mean in a situation. It’s important to pay attention to your intuition, your initial gut feelings when you see the cards - sometimes that proves to be the more accurate answer than what the book may say.

It’s also good to sometime deviate from the book. If you find this card keeps showing up in these sorts of readings in similar positions, take note of that. Not every deck behaves the same, so while one deck may show a pattern like that, others may not. They are each unique and have their own reading style as well as art style. Your deck will show you its reading style in time. (Mine are all really straightforward, blunt, almost in a harsh way, but they know I need to be told it like that or it won’t sink in / impact me.)

Okay, that’s what I’ve got for now, I hope it helps. Best of luck to you on your tarot journey!

Take care of yourself.

❗️If you are using meth & you do not feel like eating… understand that your body STILL needs nourishment.

Please don’t neglect this.

Usually… I have no appetite at all. That leads to me being weak, light headed, and dehydrated. That’s horrible for your body. I’ve experienced it, sometimes I feel like I’m gonna pass out.

The body relies on the right nutrition that comes from our food & water intake to function. Without food & water, your body doesn’t have enough energy & nutrition to carry on the functions necessary to keep you healthy… & over time your body will deteriorate (rotten teeth, bad skin, thinning hair, weight loss, weak bones & muscles,etc.)

When I don’t have an appetite I sometimes force myself to eat, but it sucks sitting there having to eat large portions when you don’t even wanna eat at all.

Do this instead.

This is what I did yesterday because I weighed myself and was like holy fuck….

Only 119 POUNDS & I’M 5'5!!!

I just weighed 138 on August 26th. So that means in only TWELVE DAYS, I lost 19 pounds.


  • Go get you some protein shakes that have at least 30 grams of protein, it’ll replace the protein ur missing from not eating any meat
  • Go get a blender (u can buy a cheap one from walmart) some fruit, ice, Greek yogurt (has a lot of protein) and some frozen fruits that u like…. blend that shit up & drink it
  • MEAL BARS!!!! Get a few boxs of em…. better to eat one of these than forcing yourself to eat a whole plate
  • BUY A JUICER seriously!!!! u can find them pretty cheap if u get a small one & juice lots of veggies like broccoli, kale, baby spinach, carrots, etc. then cover up the nasty taste of the vegetable juice by mixing in fruit with it…. I usually do Kale, baby spinach, pineapples, strawberries, & kiwi. ITS FUCKING GOOD & most importantly it’s good for you
  • Water & gatorade. Water. Gatorade. Water. Gatorade. DRINK UNTIL YOUR PISS IS CLEAR!!!! Set an alarm on ur phone to remind yourself to drink! Dehydration does HORRIBLE things to your body

Anyways…To all my fellow tweakers, please take care of your health.

This is what causes addicts & users to look like gross after a few years. Pay attention to ur health!!! YOU WILL THANK YOURSELF LATER & you will feel better ASAP.

anonymous asked:

can someone explain why ppl say sm hates sj? isn't leeteuk like lee soo mans prodigal son and didn't kyu say he's the only thing that makes sm ceo smile these days? why do elf think that did I miss something?

I seriously don’t know what make you think that ‘leeteuk’s like lee soo man’s prodigal son’ but anyway, from the start super junior was neglected by the company, as lsm said: “after tvxq formation, the members that weren’t chosen to be a part of the team were on the verge of disintegration. But because we had already contracted with them, we had to take responsibility. One of the teams was Super Junior, a group we raised to excel in music and variety shows. In order to survive, they had to cry tears of bleed through their efforts. We felt sorry for them, which is why we helped.”  Basically they debuted suju because they had to and after that the company was like ‘survive if you can otherwise we gonna replace you with someone new anyway’ and suju survived even when they had to work 100 times harder than others.

SM never really put much efforts in promoting them and super junior/elf have often been mistreated by SM [you can read about it here (1,2,3,4,5,6)] also, as heechul said: “I sometimes mention how we’ve been ranking first in Taiwan for 38 weeks and how Bonamana has been topping for 18 weeks and stuff like that when talking to people in our company and ask why they don’t make articles for us. I asked them to put out a few headlines like other companies do so that people just don’t think we’re doing nothing. When I say things like that, however, they’ll say back, ‘It’s because we think that it’s definite that Super Junior achieves those things. I don’t think it’s necessary to make a big deal out of things like that.’ So I’ll always just say back, ‘Yeah, you’re all talk.’” This just shows that SM don’t promote suju and they don’t care about them at all. That’s prolly the reason why, in Korea, many people don’t even know about super junior’s success and achievements. SM know that ELF will still support super junior even when they won’t put any efforts in promoting them, so they aren’t doing anything at all for them, which is just sad.

and to summarize the statement ‘sm hates super junior’ i’ll just leave this comment from an article here:

“So they made a group that they didn’t even think would do well out of pure sympathy. They made them sleep only 2-3 hours a day and travel to Malaysia, China, and Korea in just a day. They made someone who lost their father three weeks ago stand on stage and sing bright songs. They made an injured person that couldn’t even walk properly drag their legs on stage to sing. They made someone that had just come out of a car accident to go on TV. In such a tragic setting, you forced these kids to go on variety shows, perform at events, made them the talk of misunderstanding and criticism just so you could touch a bit of money. Even if they created laughter on variety shows, worked so hard to the point of fainting, they were only given several hundreds for their work – all members included.”

if sm don’t hate super junior then why would they treat super junior like this despite of them doing so well and making most of sm’s money and all of that from a group that they debuted out of pity and with no expectations at all? If anything SM should be grateful to have super junior in their company and should really stop treating them so bad. Let’s just hope SM will finally get their shit together and better not mess their upcoming comeback as well :/

anyways writing fic is a time-consuming, emotionally draining, process that hundreds of people do for absolutely nothing other than feedback and the hope that someone will rec their story to one of their friends. maybe instead of making posts dragging fic writers for grammar mistakes/over-used tropes/abandoning fic you should go write a nice comment to one of these wonderful angels and stop taking them for granted.

Writer’s Appreciation Day!

Ok i know im ultra mega late but I was at work all day and had some plans afterwards but I really wanted to make a post for today! As a fellow Tumblr writer (a trashy, slutty one at that) I know how fun it is to unleash ideas, being as creative as you’d like and sharing all your excitement and stories with all these other lovely people on here. But I also know how it feels when sometimes you may not get the feedback you’d expect, or when some people just don’t understand how much work a person puts into their creations. Some people have the gift of making their writings their bitch and can get a good story out in a few days, while others can take from weeks to months to get a small chunk out. We all have that time where we can get stuck in an awful writer’s block (I literally just got out of mine after about 6 months), or maybe life seems to get in the way and you have to prioritize certain things and set writing aside. But that’s all okay!

I hope you all know that there’s at least one person out there you’ve made an impact on with your writing. You’ve made them smile, you’ve made them cry in agony with all that angst, you’ve tortured them to death with all that juicy ass smut (all in good ways). You’ve allowed people out there to take a break from reality, letting them in on a precious world you’ve created and let them live it, even if it was just a few moments. Honestly I can’t thank enough people for allowing me to bang Wonho I’ve literally banged him over like 200 times in alternate universes you don’t know how much I needed that ok bless your souls

But anyways, I really hope every writer out there knows how much everyone appreciates their time. You guys have your own lives, jobs, school, other important things to attend to yet you all take the time to write for people too?? To make them happy and brighten their day?? You are all seriously the best. 

I really appreciate all the people I’ve met on here, and thank you to all my followers as well for sticking with me even when I haven’t been writing for awhile. You guys are the ones that keep me going, and I’m so thankful for your kindness and patience. I love you guys!

I just wanted to end it with a few writers that I adore with their masterlists attached and what some of my favorite fics are by them! Everyone should show them some love as well because they’re all sweet and amazing people! Happy Writer’s Appreciation Day! :)
