but not actually anons because i know who they are

2

So I’ve been trying to settle on a drawing style to STICK TO for awhile, with the idea that if I try to be more consistent, I’ll be able to figure out where I actually have problems? Because I noticed that all of my mettatons look slightly different from one another in all these random ways orz 

Anyways I like this? I’ll do a full body ref sheet later but for now, any thoughts? (If u think pointing out flaws would hurt my feelings ur welcome to send me an ask on anon so I dont know who u are!! But it won’t really hurt my feelings i’ll be really grateful ; w ; ) 

anonymous asked:

'Clearly full of it' is there really a need to be that rude about s/t that doesnt harm you at all? You dont know their experiences at all so saying theyre full of it when you dont know how they feel is really upsetting.

I think fictionkin think they’re fictionkin. They’re not actually fictionkin, because it’s impossible to be a reincarnation (or whatever it is fictionkin think they are) of a fictional character, because fictional characters aren’t real.

There are also fictionkin who use their fictionkin status to be anti’s, ie, ‘I am kin with Character A, so A/B is problematic because I would never be in a relationship with B’, which is very annoying to the fandom.

He’d never cosplay anyone ever, he’s already beautiful and perfect.

Besides, I already have a character with sharp green teeth - Rabbit!

I’m seeing a lot of young transgender or non-binary people out there freaking out or going completely silent and removing all their info from their bios in light of the recent news in America. And I get that, I really, truly do.

But I also want you guys to know that it’s safe to come talk to me if you’re feeling pressured or scared or angry or whatever you’re feeling. If you’re comfortable with talking to me, go for it. :)

Secondly, if you’ve spoken to me about your gender for whatever reason, and are feeling scared about someone else finding out or you being being outed for any reason, please know that I will never reveal anything we have spoken about, anything you have sent to me or asked me about (as an anon or not) to anyone. What we discuss is private, and unless you give me permission to respond publicly or speak about it to others, it will stay between us. Always.

THE SIGNS WHEN SINGLE ON VALENTINE’S DAY

Aries: They start off the day with loads of “Happy Valentine’s Day, babe” messages from various unimportant people which feels pretty good at first, but as the day goes on they start to feel empty because they don’t have anyone that they truly care about.

Taurus: They don’t really mind the fact that they’re single on Valentine’s day because it’s just another day in the year. UNLESS they just got out of a relationship… if that’s the case then they’ll probably end up wallowing all day and listening to sad songs.

Gemini: There are two types of single gems on Valentine’s Day. Type one won’t even acknowledge that it’s Valentine’s Day and will just go on with their life as usual. While type two is just devastated that they are single and will probably text a few of their exes to try and have some fun later.

Cancer: Probably will lock themselves inside all day to avoid the cute couples and Valentine’s Day decorations. Also, is most likely to cry if they see either of those things. 

Leo: Are these guys ever really single on Valentine’s Day? Secret admirers and/or best friends are always around to give them small gifts, chocolates, or cards… They enjoy every second of Valentine’s Day- single or taken.

Virgo: Chill AF, they don’t waste time with sadness or hoping for a significant other to fall out the sky. They probably have plans to hang out with close friends or family later in the day because Valentine’s Day isn’t about being in love it’s about being around people you LOVE, right?

Libra: “Alright everyone, Happy Valentine’s Day, I may be single this year, but that’s no reason for me to be bitter over everyone else’s happiness. I’ve decided that I don’t need false validation to be happy today, I’m going to wait for my soulmate to appear. I need to love myself before someone else can love me. Good luck to all the couples out there xx” - Libra’s Facebook status. However, after they finish post this they proceed to cry themselves to sleep because of singleness.

Scorpio:  VALENTINE’S DAY WAS INVENTED BY THE GREETING CARD COMPANIES. EVERY SINGLE PERSON WHO CELEBRATES VALENTINE’S DAY IS STUPID AND IS BEING FOOLED BY CAPITALISM! … someone please rise from the ashes and date me. - Scorpio’s mind for the full duration of Valentine’s Day

Sagittarius: A part of them is super chill about being single because relationships are too stressful, but hearing everyone else’s romantic plans on Valentine’s Day can depress them a bit. They’ll get over it after a while though and go to the movies with another hopelessly single friend.

Capricorn: They will try their hardest to come across as not caring about the fact that they are single, but on the inside they’re evaluating all the relationships they had over the past year. What went wrong? Why did it go wrong?  Nothing is my fault right? RIGHT…

Aquarius: The Valentine’s Day party-pooper along with Scorpio. However, they’ll go out of their way to let people know how stupid Valentine’s Day is. You see that angry couple walking down the street? Yep, they just got a lecture from our dear friend, Aquarius, about how stupid they are and how meaningless Valentine’s Day is.

Pisces: They’re crying all day, not just because they are single, but also because they have to wait one more day for all the Valentine’s candy to be on sale.

What if Kara gets infected with something that's like a truth serum and everyone thinks it'll be fine and funny but Kara's actually really sad and depressed

ive combined this with this anon prompt i also got: “I have emotions about Kara and Astra’s death. When Alex starts apologising she takes it so well and I know it’s probably because it’s her sister and she can’t lose her sister but I feel like Kara would be someone who bottles their emotions up. Can we have a fic where she can’t take it anymore at the alien bar with the superfriends? (Lena included)”

“What happened??” Alex demands as she and Maggie enter the medical bay. Kara lies in a yellow sun bed, and J’onn, James, Winn, and Lena keep vigil by her bedside.

“Cadmus,” J’onn says bluntly. “They injected her with some sort of truth-telling serum in an effort to reveal classified DEO information, but we got her out before she could do any real damage.” Alex gives a shaky sigh of relief, taking her sister’s hand in her own.

“So she’ll be okay?”

“We’ll wake her up shortly, and do further testing. She should be fine, Alex.”

They sit around her bed, patiently waiting for her to wake. The silence is broken by whirring machines, and small giggles coming from Winn.

Lena is the first to break.

“Would you stop laughing, Winslow Schott?! This is a serious matter!”

“I’m sorry,” Winn replies, “it’s just… truth telling serum is my favourite trope. I bet we can ask her things she’d never usually answer.”

“Wouldn’t that be betraying her trust?” Maggie asks.

“It’ll be finally finding out what happened to the mysterious disappearing birthday cake she was entrusted with two years ago.”

“We know what happened to that,” Alex says, rolling her eyes. “She ate it.”

“Well you know what, it would be nice to have a verbal confirmation,” Winn grumbles. He smiles, a mischievous gleam in his eye. “It’ll mean finally finding out what happened to the garage roof when you were younger, Alex.”

Alex narrows her eyes, clearly weighing up her options.

“Fine,” she relents, “but nothing too hectic.”

Kara blinks awake slowly, groaning in pain as she sits up.

“What happened?” she asks her friends and family.

“Cadmus,” Lena tells her gently. “But you’re okay now.”

“Hey, Kara,” Winn grins, “what happened to James’ birthday cake that disappeared?”

“I gave it to a homeless man,” Kara says matter-of-factly. Her friends smile at her kindness. “… also I ate half of it.”

“i KNEW IT!”

“Hey, Kara,” James says, “who’s your best friend, me or Lena?”

“Cat Grant,” Kara answers.

“What?” everyone says at the same time. Lena looks like she’s about to cry.

“Well, Cat’s my best friend. You’re all my family.”

“Gayyyyyyy,” Maggie calls out. “my turn.”

“Actually, it’s bi,” Kara says. “But please, continue.” she’s seemingly impervious to the gaping looks on her friends’ faces. Lena doesn’t look like she wants to cry anymore.

“Okay, Little Danvers. How much did you really see when you walked in on us two nights ago?” Maggie asks, eyebrow raised. Alex turns bright red, and Winn looks like he’s about to pass out.

“Enough to know that my sister’s a bottom.”

“Okay, Sawyer,” J’onn sighs. “No more questions for you.”

“My turn,” Lena says. “Why did it take you so long to tell me you’re Supergirl?”

“I liked having someone in my life who loved me for Kara without Supergirl being a part of the equation.” The room is silent. Maggie is the only one able to find her voice.

“Little Danvers, everyone here loves you for Kara,” she says. Kara shakes her head, still so matter-of-fact.

“J’onn sees me as an asset. James sees me as Clark’s little cousin. Winn sees me as some sort of action figure for his collection. And Alex… I’m the burden who ruined her life.”

“She doesn’t mean it,” Maggie says automatically.

“No, this is… this is what she thinks, deep down. This is what she feels,” Alex says with tears in her eyes. “You were never a burden, and you most definitely did not ruin my life.” Kara turns to her, and cocks her head.

“I ruined yours, and you ruined mine.”

“I…?”

“You took my aunt away from me,” Kara whispers. “She was all I had left. She was… you made me lose my mother all over again. You did that. You murdered her.” Silent tears run down both Danvers’ cheeks, as their friends stand awkwardly behind them.

“I hate myself for it,” Alex says, a small sob escaping.

“Sometimes I think I hate you for it, too.”

“That’s enough!” J’onn roars. “This was a bad idea. Maggie, take Alex to the training room. Olsen and Schott, get back to work.”

“We need to-“

“You don’t need to do anything. You’re all forgetting that these are Kara’s deepest thoughts and fears. And that she loves you all more fiercely than another being has loved their family.”

The team breaks up, only Lena staying behind. J’onn turns to Kara.

“I’m sorry, Kara,” he murmurs. “you’re so much more than an asset. You’re… you’re a daughter.”

“You’re the strongest person I know,” she tells him with a friendly, aloof smile, and he sighs softly before he leaves. It may not have been the best method of hashing things out, but he’s glad that they’ve aired their problems. It means they can start moving forward. It means Kara can start healing.

dear anon who just put a paragraph of explicit sonic/ronald mcdonald slash fic in my inbox. i know i basically brought this on myself but it still made my eyeballs fall out of my head. thank you. also fuck you for making me read the words “pallid clown flesh”

anonymous asked:

(part 1) ur gonna roast me for this but im legit curious why mafia AUs are so bad? im asking in a non confrontational way, i get it romanticizing mafia is wrong, but i also believe that 1)most mafia AUs are a really toned down type of mafia;2)they do make for some interesting kinds of dynamics with fanart and with fics; 3)in a fic specifically u can create your own world and call something mafia and still make it so they don't kill innocent people but only idk members of other gangs or sth

(part 2) plus theyre a way to put ur charas in a completely diff context and see what theyll do. i mean i dont believe that writing ships in a certain context (like mafia) equals romanticizing that context. mafia AUs arent even my fav things to read (in fact i almost never do), im sure many ppl romanticize it and i obvs dont agree with that but im just trying to udnerstand bc i believe fandoms are a way to explore things that we normally wouldnt.

I’m not gonna roast you don’t worry xD okay wait let me check if I replied to this already if yes I’m gonna c/p because it’s half past midnight otherwise I’ll just go at it again wait *checks tags* fff obviously I don’t have a general post but anyway pls read this after you’ve done with my post and then this which is also choke-full of links. plus for a (not nice) laugh: here. AH WAIT I FOUND THE POST.

okay, so, let’s have it out of the way: I have nothing against mob aus or crime aus. I have a problem against calling them mafia AUs because in the US mafia = organized crime at large, in Italy mafia = ACTUAL EXISTING ORGANIZATIONS THAT ARE ACTIVELY HARMFUL. now that I introduced the topic I’ll c/p you the reply I gave to another anon who while discussing the issue pointed out that most writers don’t even know Italian mafia is a thing, which is pretty much on the same discourse so…

*The thing is - in the US it might not be enough of a deal anymore and I honestly do get why people make the mafia = regular mobsters, since the mafia was the first foreign organized crime being exported to the US via italian immigrants (sorry if this sounds horrible in English but I just woke up and I still didn’t have coffee) so I understand that mafia became the umbrella term.But the thing is that - as you said, these people don’t even know that there’s a mafia in Italy anymore or where the word comes from.

 I’m going to link to italiansreclaimingitaly’s tag about the mafia and its perception outside Italy because they posted about this extensively and it’s an excellent resource, but meanwhile I’m gonna do a very short bullet point list and about the topic:

  • Mafia might not be a big deal in the US, but it still is here. We have the beauty of four different mafias (Cosa Nostra - the Sicilian one, camorra which is the one in Campania but has tendrils spread everywhere, the ‘ndrangheta which is in Calabria and the Sacra Corona Unita in Puglia) which are all active [especially camorra and 'ndrangheta] and whose actions have direct impact (negative) on our economy and on our society. Actually mafias are one of the main reasons we’re currently economically fucked up, and if I start talking about how mafia culture keeps some areas literally backwards I could talk about it for three months.
  • There are still people who are killed for standing up against them. These days the most prominent personality is Roberto Saviano who is a writer who dared to put together a book documenting minutely the way camorra works and he’s been living under protection for years by this point. Like, they want him dead because he wrote a book. And I’m sorta sure that he was talking about leaving Italy and going to the US after years of sticking with it here because he can’t take it anymore but I don’t know if it was a taken decision or if it’s still debating it.
  • It wasn’t even thirty years ago that we had the stragi di mafia - in english it’d be something like the mafia slaughters, basically around the beginning of the nineties there were a number of bombs planted by the mafia targeting people who were trying to oppose it including judges Falcone and Borsellino, actually the anniversary of Falcone’s death is like… tomorrow. And they’ve killed people for way longer than that. Here is a list of only Cosa Nostra victims including the ones from the eighties/nineties. And people are still dying because of it. The slaughters I’m referring to are just the ones in the nineties which are enough of a number.
  • They also perpetuate a culture where if you testify against your mafia-employed relatives you’ll be shunned forever. There are women who testified against their families and couldn’t see their children anymore never mind that they weren’t automatically considered a relative anymore the moment they sided against the mafia. Some people have committed suicide after becoming witnesses also because our police force/justice system can be terribly non-supportive in this kind of situation so they got left on their own. Never mind that back in the day - it was the beginning of the nineties? - I recall at least a particular story of - I think, correct me if I remember wrong but I can’t remember the names for the life of me - where this guy testified against the local mafia when he either used to work for them or was forced to pay them the pizzo and in retaliation his six-year old (or five? Anyway he had a son younger than ten for sure) got kidnapped, killed and thrown into acid to dispose of the body. That happened in what, 1993? 1994? It’s pretty much yesterday. And now the camorra is doing the same - there’s a list here of camorra victims among which accidental passerbys that got killed because they were in the way which I can tell just by glancing is not complete. And I’m not even going into the 'ndrangheta. That is to say, here mafia still kills people and cripples our country.

Now, I get that it’s a word, but the point was: let’s say that instead of the Italians the Japanese came to the US first and the umbrella word for organized crime was yakuza rather than mafia and let’s say yakuza was still what it was originally in Japan while in the US it stopped being a big deal and people write yakuza!AU instead of mafia AU. Let’s say someone Japanese gets angry at that and goes like 'listen the yakuza is a real deal it does this this this and that and it’s a plague in our country so can you please at least look it up before writing your fanfic’, which is what had happened way back then when this whole mafia and fanfic thing blew up. A bunch of people told us to get over it because it’s just a word and if it’s a problem in Italy it’s not in the US so why should they care? Now, if we had been Japanese (or Chinese or Russian or Mexican) would they have said the same thing? Considering the general tumblr attitude I’m pretty sure they would have received either an apology or 'this is an important deal let’s keep that in mind’ with signal boost reblogs and stuff. 

It’s the fact that we should get over people not knowing that it’s still a real problem for us and that they can’t take five seconds to google it that is the problem imo. Especially when instead of mafia au you can just say mobsters au or tag it as organized crime and everyone is a lot happier, mostly because as the tag above explains romanticising the mafia is a good thing for them because it means they can act outside Italy with less stigma because everyone thinks that the mafia is dead or not relevant anymore, if I’m explaining myself. (And it’s active outside Italy - like, there was a mafia kill in Germany in 2007 where six people died (sorry the link is in Italian but there isn’t an English wiki page, if you look the city up you’ll find something probably) and it was because of the 'ndrangheta.

I’d really like to not get worked over it because it meant it was a thing of the past y'know, but the problem is that it isn’t and I’d rather spread some awareness in hope some of these writers look it up (because it’s a good thing that people know what mafia is since as stated they have tendrils everywhere - if you read Saviano’s book the entire first chapter is about how camorra regularly deals with Chinese import/export in Italy for one) than shrug and figure that since they’ll think everything is good for fanfic then it’s not even worth my time.*

Now, ^^^ that was the c/p-ed reply that should answer most of your doubts. What I didn’t address was:

im sure many ppl romanticize it and i obvs dont agree with that but im just trying to udnerstand bc i believe fandoms are a way to explore things that we normally wouldnt.

aaaand as we say here in Italy, this is where the donkey falls (sorry we have weird sayings), because in theory there’s nothing wrong with that… except that in 99% of the mafia aus I’ve seen around the thing is that they’re supposed to be cute.

like, I see a lot of shit with TINY MAFIA BOSS STEVE ROGERS with RUSSIAN ENFORCER BUCKY (????? bucky isn’t even russian???) and the yoi thing I saw before had the japanese character being the leader of a russian mafia gang which is… like… guys it doesn’t happen it really doesn’t, and a lot of them re-use wrongly terminology taken from the godfather without context or knowing what the hell it means, and it’s always from the criminals’ pov and they’re somehow seen as criminals doing justice where the police can’t (???) and like… no. mafia bosses/enforcers/employees are bad people period, and at least here if you try to leave or repent they kill your family in retribution. like, not even ten years ago there’s been a woman who used to belong to a mafia family (or one colluded with the mafia) who testified and her entire town/family shunned her and she couldn’t take it anymore and… killed herself drinking acid if I don’t recall wrong. it’s not even special cases. this shit is not funny, it’s not cute, it’s not adorable and it’s not good fodder for your imagine your otp scenario (srsly I saw one like.. let me find it,

LIKE. just look at this shit. in a regular context, the enforcer goes to the show owner to force them to pay a monthly sum to their boss lest they destroy their shop and their lives and their family’s life never mind that mafia culture is deeply homophobic so the mafia enforcer flirting with the shopkeeper is like completely fucking out of the question. I mean, people here like to shit on the sopranos but that show was actually excellent representation of Horrid Criminals Who Were Never Supposed To Be Good People and the small arc that happened when one of tony’s friends turned out to be gay (closeted) was REALLY well done. btw, it ended that when they found out he was gay most of the crowd rejected him and thought badly of him until I think they killed him also for other reasons, but that spiraled from finding out he liked dick. and that’s american mafia that they actually based on well-done research of the culture in Italy it came from, I assure you that here it doesn’t work that differently. like. the shit above is so inaccurate and frankly offensive, it’s like… I get people romanticizing problematic stuff but the thing is that when you tell them that it’s actually offensive you get brushed off as ‘ah well you’re being too sensitive it’s just a word u__u’. now, I’m all for exploring shit we wouldn’t be into, but not like THAT, because that’s like mafia romantic comedy and that’s not how it works. now, you wanna do a fic where the mafia characters are deeply flawed and bad people and the police tries to catch them? fine, great, go ahead. you wanna do a fic where the enforcer above deals with dunno an entire life of internalized homophobia when he finds the shopkeeper attractive and feels conflicted over having to con money out of him and doing horrible shit for a living and maybe understanding that crime isn’t worth it and then he actually collaborates with the police and gets shit from about everyone he knows and loves for that? okay, awesome, go ahead. nothing bad in that.

but the shit above is not exploring things we wouldn’t/writing darkfic, it’s THINKING THAT A CRIMINAL ORGANIZATION WHICH IS STILL A THING IN OUR PART OF THE WORLD IS CUTE AND ADORABLE. and that only plays in their favor because it takes the bad aura out of the word and we really should not let that happen. like. that is what is bad about mafia aus and mafia discourse, that people don’t realize the mafia is alive and well and thriving and not a thing that doesn’t exist or a generic word for organized crime.

you wanna write the shit above? okay, CALL IT CRIME AU or mob au, not mafia au.

btw, add-on: idk if I mentioned it in the above post or not, but in case I didn’t, I said that people would balk at the idea of a mexican cartel au. sadly since then I’ve found out a fandom where not only there is one but it’s also extra cutesy and people apparently love it and it has a bunch of kudos/comments and idek I’m not even touching that with a ten foot pole but like… I’ve avoided it and everything that author wrote because to me it’s just… nope. like, nope. if you do mafia aus don’t make them fucking cute. (also: in the same fandom I had to mute a v. famous fanartist whose art I actually liked but did cutesy mafia aus and.. like… haahahhaahahahahaha nah sorry. can’t go there. nope.)

Dear anon,

I was going to ignore your message, but let’ be honest I have no reason to lie about losing weight, if you go on my tumblr you can find my before and after (just face btw).

Also if you don’t believe me I don’t understand why you say I’m ashamed of who I was. You made me think a lot about it, so I decided to post this to show you I really don’t care how I used to look, I’m actually proud of the old me. Btw It’s a before and during, because I’m still working on my body and I know one day I will get where i want to be.

I don’t know if you can see the change, but I actually feel like a different person.

P.S. Same phone, Different body.

Got7 reaction to meeting their S/O parents for the first time

A/N - A fun little anon request! This one was a fun one to write because I think we’ve all imagined bringing the boys home to our parents hehe~ Enjoy and keep sending in your requests! 

Mark: Mark will know exactly how to get your parent to like him. For some reason, he just has a way with parents and knows how to get on their good sides. So for that reason, he’s not at all nervous and is actually quite excited to meet the people who raised such an amazing person - you.

JB: Jaebum wouldn’t be too nervous I don’t think because he doesn’t seem like the kind of person to worry too much about what people think of him. He knows he loves you and that you love him so why worry if your parents like him or not? He’ll still try to impress them, of course but he’ll be pretty relaxed and chill around them.

Jackson: Jackson would be a little nervous but he’s good at getting along with new people so inevitably, it wouldn’t take much to calm him down. This boy is super charismatic so will be fully prepared to win over your parents with little gifts and his charming personality. He’s basically the best person to introduce to your family.

Jinyoung: Okay so prince Jinyoung is the best boyfriend you could ever bring home to your parents. There is no better person at all because oh my gosh he is just so polite and sweet and cannot do anything wrong. Your parents will love him so much as soon as they meet him and they’ll want you both to get married and have cute babies asap.

Youngjae: Youngjae wouldn’t be too nervous to meet your parents unless you told him they were strict or really protective over you. But he would be nervous if you had a sibling because he knows siblings can sometimes get super protective whenever they get into a relationship

Bambam: On the outside, Bambam is calm, collected and ready to meet your parents. Like he’ll tell you that he’s looking forward to it and isn’t at all nervous. But on the inside?? He’d dying because what if they don’t like him? What if they tell you to stop dating him? What if he says something stupid and they hate him forever? Poor boy gets so nervous inside bless him.

Yugyeom: Such! A! Shy! Baby! Yugyeom would be so nervous to meet your parents omg like when you’re in the car driving over to their house, he’d constantly be asking questions about them and what’s the best way to impress them. He’d just be really worried that he’d say something wrong or would give off a bad first impression.

Currently crying on the floor of the practice room because I don't feel like I'm good enough to do this but it's also the only thing I actually care about. didn't know who else to tell ok thank you bye

good news you’re on the same track as every professional musician

anonymous asked:

I know you said you don't want to talk about this topic anymore but you hace always been balanced, you have never written hateful things about Sam (or Cait) so I would like to read a post of yours about all of this. Because I know I won't read anything hateful or disgusting but something that comes out from the heart of a kind person. And God knows how this shipper community needs more kind people right now.

Thank you, anon. That is nice to say.

I’m actually in the situation that I don’t know how to proceed. Reading what was said here over night, was like looking into an ugly mirror. I don’t want to be that person, who makes derogatory comments about a young woman. Calling her “crosseyed”,  with “no neck” and “fat shoulders” etc etc. 

Disgusting. And the reason? She might be a person Sam cares about. Maybe even loves. Maybe is very serious about. Or not. Who knows? In any case it is no reason to insult her.

For the record: I love Sam and Cait. I love Outlander. I think Sam and Cait are wonderful people. The might not always make wise decisions, but it is not our business how they live their life, with whom they’re in love and with whom they’re not. We might live in our own little fantasy world and wish for a fairy tale, because WE think the fairy tale would be wonderful, but that doesn’t mean it IS going to happen. 

I know I’m terribly curious. There’s no other excuse for my shipping. I also know it is not my place to be curious. I know I shouldn’t ship real people, because they’re real people with real feelings, but I thought it was okay, as long as I did it respectfully. I just love them together. They’re so cute, so wonderful, they glow, they make me happy. They’re a way to forget my own problems, to push worries away and frustrations. 

I think most people in a fandom have a reason to be there. We don’t need to pretend, that we’re all successful, happy, attractive women, who just happen to have this little obsession with Outlander and the two actors in it. I think we all know, that this little obsession is an escape for many of us. Not all probably, but a lot of people. And probably even more so for the most active people in this fandom. An escape from whatever trouble and problem and depression is in our lives and that is perfectly OK. We need it and it is good for us and it helps us to cope with really difficult times.

But real life shipping gets difficult if the real story doesn’t match the fantsy and we can’t cope with that. We have to realize, if the real story is a different one, then so be it. Where is the tragedy in it? Where does it really affect me whether Sam and Cait are together or not?

It doesn’tl. I’d need another hobby, that’s all. Because I’m a shipper mainly because it offers entertainment. It keeps me busy all day and the great thing about it is: It never ends. No hiatus, no Droughtlander. Sam and Cait are always there, always available for my shipper entertainment.

I thought it was okay, as long as it was done respectfully.

But for me the line was drawn tonight. I didn’t see much respect. It got nasty and ugly and I don’t want to be part of this.

Sam and Cait just live their life with or without other people in it. Who knows and who cares?

I’m undecided how to proceed. Maybe just concentrate on Outlander? I do love the show, but it is off air for another 6 months! And I don’t watch any other show. Not one. I just don’t watch TV. 

Maybe I should try to hold back more. Just try to create my own little bubble of shippers, who love Sam and Cait and love the fantasy, but are able to talk about the other people in their lives without malice and who can accept that there might be no truth behind our shipping. There are a lot of shippers, who don’t participate in the nasty. Maybe I should concentrate on those.

I really don’t know. 

anonymous asked:

I think it's a shame that you only answer flattery questions, and ignore the good criticism. Hiding behind the "this game costs a lot" excuse won't make your game better. Listening to advice will. You are letting your pride come before judgment, and even if the people who think the game could improve a lot (especially in the writing side) are a minority, as a developer, you should listen to them and consider their opinions, not pack them into the "they're complaining about the AU again" pile.

I think the basic concept here is failure to understand criticism and headcanon complaints. For example, if you feel as if a voice is voiced wrong, or a custom story element/writing aspect you feel does not match UNDERTALE, is more along the lines of headcanon/personal taste complaints, and while you may feel that it’s criticism, it does not help me if it’s provided without actual context.

While they’re totally fine, turning something like that around and saying that I do not listen to criticism or feedback is completely not OK, see HERE for a post explaining this act. I’m aware of the difference. If you honest-to-God feel like there’s something you’re upset about, simply stating “I don’t like how you wrote so-and-so,” is absolutely not helpful in any form. If you were to go into detail, provide your viewpoints and some pointers, it would let me see how YOU see the characters. But, once again, telling me that something is not written in a way you like it, or a design is not they way you like it, is not helpful in any form without detailed context.

Pride does not come before judgement in this case, regardless of what you think, I do listen to all criticisms and a lot of aspects of the game have been changed because of it. I’m not sorry that I unfortunately care about my game. There’s plenty of proof on the update logs on various areas that have been altered because someone pointed something out or provided a detailed example of something WITHOUT simply saying “I don’t like that design! Change it!” Recently, one of the larger concerns has been to add a downloadable version, which will be available on the next update.

Lastly, “the game costing too much” is absolutely an impedement. I hate to say it, but there’s no loans or a constant flow of cash coming in to help me develop this game. When a script is written, it’s reviewed by me and the voice actors to ensure it flows correctly. When a design is created, it’s looked over by the team and posted publicly for feedback. When music is created, it’s posted on YouTube for feedback and criticism. This all costs money, and to alter it at the last second or request an alteration costs money, too.

Furthermore, believe it or not, I don’t get many questions regarding it. I answer just about any ask that isn’t off-topic that comes into my inbox. Most questions people ask are in our Discord, anyway. Any sort of questions about the writing mostly stem from “How come Sans is helping Frisk? How come he didn’t kill them!” which is not the direction I’m taking the story and certainly something I’m not revealing because of spoilers.

Do understand that extreme amount of work and hardships that actually /come/ with developing a full-scale game. My team and I work as hard as we can to ensure that UNDERFELL is developed at a pace that’s satisfying yet how WE and YOU, want it to be developed. If this game were developed completely by the community and with absolutely no leadership, it’d come out as a mish-mash of personal headcanons with no story base other than “kill human.” Unfortunately, developers have to deal with people accusing them of not listening, when they in fact, do.

Criticism and feedback are absolutely, without-a-doubt, welcomed. This is something that most, if not all, know about who follow this blog. However, like I stated, it needs to be something with context that the team can understand. A good way to approach me with criticism or feedback is, “Hey, I was thinking that when Papyrus says <dialog>, he maybe should say <dialog> because <reason> and perhaps because <reason>, here’s the <solution>.”

This was a very passive-aggressive question that lead to something that I could actually explain in-depth to people. I’m not sorry it didn’t turn out the way you wanted, anon. With my ending statement, I’m not Toby Fox and UNDERFELL is NOT UNDERTALE. Things will be different, much different. If you do not like this, there are plenty of other games that heavily follow UNDERTALE’s lore.

For example, you can check out Team Spritedgy’s rendition of the UF AU, here: http://gamejolt.com/games/undertale-underfell/151411

It’s more vanilla than what I’m aiming for.

ASKS - Misc Majors

Asks sent to my main, answered here! All these deal with different majors at EU.

valaaz said: What would the Fae do about architecture students? Would architecture studios be one of those places where time passes differently? End of semester projects suddenly seem to ignore all laws of physics but the physical models still work somehow?

Not all architecture projects. But if you’re desperate enough for inspiration to strike a deal, it’s fifty-fifty you’ll end up with some Escher shit that would implode if constructed anywhere except on campus, model or not.

anonymous asked:

so yeah fuck sjm for the way she’s treating her only lesbian character by making her have sex with a dude to ‘fix’ herself and all the potential harm she’s gonna do to her young lesbian readers Stop trying to go all queen diversity when it's not canon that the guys are poc unless it described in the book. plus rowalien is abusive and makes no sense and maybe you should read thepaige-turners whole thesis on it and it's fake feminism

I’d respond to all your points in your other four asks that took up my phone screen, but honestly, I’m busy trying to get my own novel written, so I’ll just address a few quickly. 

1) Mor isn’t a lesbian. She hasn’t had sex with males to ‘fix herself’ - She explicitly says she likes both but leans towards females. Bisexual people can have a preference! Your bisexual erasure isn’t cool, friendo.

I do find pleasure in them. In both.” - Mor to Feyre in ACOWAR, page 589

“I slept with males in part because I enjoyed it, but… also to stop people from looking too closely.” Mor to Feyre in ACOWAR, page 590 

To keep people from looking too closely… as many LGBT+ folks do who aren’t comfortable being out.

She also hides it so it doesn’t get back to her family. One same-sex couple in power doesn’t mean that everyone accepts it. Seriously, it would be unrealistic for Mor to come out to a knowingly phobic family. It also seems that she sees her sexuality as the one thing, the only thing that is hers and hers alone, belonging to only her. I can relate to that with my gender. Does that make me a terrible person too, or? 

“….I’ve hidden it because…” She tilted back her head, looking skyward. “Because I live in terror of my family finding out — and shaming me, hurting me because this one thing that has remained wholly mine.” - Mor to Feyre in ACOWAR, page 590


2) Maas describes other Illyrians as having brown skin. Golden brown may not have been a good choice of words, but they’re brown-skinned canonically. 

Like Azriel and Cassian, they possessed dark hair and eyes of assorted Hazel and Brown. And like my friends, their skin was rich shades of golden brown, some flecked with bone-white scars of varying severity. ACOWAR, chapter 51, page 483. 


3) We see a lot of things in SJM’s books that we don’t elsewhere in mainstream fiction. Female agency, for one. Male sexual abuse is tackled. We see a man who is both emotional, yet powerful. We see someone leaving an abusive relationship, someone dealing with mental illness (Feyre has PTSD, fight me), we see feminism….etc.

4) I can’t comment on TOG, because I keep lending my books out instead of actually reading them. 

I’m not going to go on any longer because I really need to get back to my work, but seriously. Next time, know what you’re talking about before you come crashing into my inbox.

Rehearse- Jimmy Vesey

Ok so struggle bus hit hard with this one! Not because I didn’t know where to go with it, but because I had NO idea what was going on in the song and yeah… ok Hamilton seems like a good play. Any who, I think I’m happy with this so I hope you guys are too! Enjoy!

Warning: some spoilers for Hamilton?, talks of death

Anon Request: I know this is probably oddly specific, but could you do an imagine where y/n is making her Broadway debut in the musical, Hamilton, and she is completely worried about performing the song Stay Alive Reprise because of how sad it is, and she is scared she will mess up, so her boyfriend, Jimmy Vesey helps her rehearse it to the best of his ability, and she actually makes him cry because she did so good, and it’s so sad? Thanks love ❤

anonymous asked:

Why do you keep equating her PR games with her personal life? This is not about her sexuality. STRAIGHT PEOPLE FAKE RELATIONSHIPS TOO. This is about marketing and promotion. Open you mind up and stop attacking people because you refuse to see your anons have a point.

Let me break this down for you all since you’re having such an incredibly hard time understanding the issue I’m having with all of this. I’m just going to map it out for you guys since some of you apparently missed how disgusting you’re being. This all started because of this anon: “not excited for ts6 anymore that little bish has been treating us like shit and wants us to buy it lmao i’m downloading it” 

Sorry, but what kind of petty ass high school baby bullshit is this?? This anon is mad about the new PR stunt because it means no gay narrative for Taylor when we thought that maybe, JUST MAYBE, she’d be beard free and she’d push the gay on TS6. They’re literally mad because Taylor isn’t coming out, which apparently means she’s “treating us like shit.” She’s ‘using’ the loyal fans who know the ‘truth’…the, dare i say it, GAY truth (which you actually don’t).

(also you do realize that coming out is personal, hence the personal life mention).

But, wait! Lemme stop you there before we continue though cause I know what you’re going to say: *cries* bUt she LIKed HoMOphoBIC STUFf on TwiTTER and on the TumBlr  ):

(If you’re referring to the l*arrie post, she wasn’t entirely wrong. Some of you are over the top and tracking her planes/every move is weird af)

Also, I just went through all 2,000 something likes of hers on twitter. I’d like to point out this: it’s a cute like from 2014. 

She proved over and over that she’s not homophobic so you saying she’s treating you like shit is crazy lmao you’re saying she’s treating us like shit because of that and it’s false. “Using the gay fans” lmao

So like….do you see how that’s relating to her personal life? Kaylor’s are tired of her stunting, but she’s stunting to create a straight narrative. Why are you guys pretending you didn’t know this? SO YEAH the issue is you’re mad cause she wont stop stunting and come out already. Her boyfriend PR moves are to distract away from any other possible narrative.

So on the next episode of gaylorswift.tumblr.com, we have this anon: The moment she pulled that Joe Jonas break-up call stunt; she invited everyone to analyse and dissect her personal life.

Honey…. no. Just….no. She was like 17 and had no idea what she was doing. She didn’t invite you to dissect her personal life and how dare you make that gross ass assumption. She’s not a reality TV star, but some of you are making it seem that way. Is Keeping Up With The Swifts on E! because if so please let me know! That’s the only time you’re invited to dissect someone’s personal life. Otherwise, you’re being Extra™ and invasive for no reason. She’s here to make and sell music. 

Then we have this nice gem from another gross anon:  “If I met Taylor now, I would probably laugh at her face”

Again, why? Like I really have no other response, but why? Cause you’re petty? You guys are making this about her personal life because you’re so mad she won’t come out. You’re saying she’s treating gay fans like shit and using us while liking homophobic stuff when she has liked MORE THAN ENOUGH gay shit on Tumblr. She’s proved to not be homophobic so find another excuse to hate on her.

anonymous asked:

do you think the k army is hiding things about kookmin from the international arrmy to protect the boys, and if you do, then why? what made you believe?

another anon also said:

HELLO, i have been hearing stuff like the Karmy defending kookmin and their career and hiding stuff from the Iarmy, i wanted to ask your opinion.. do u think this actually happens, and if you do then why do you think that way and where have you seen it happend! thank u for everything and i LOVE ur blogggg

do i think this actually happens ? 

yes. i’ve been in the kpop fandom long enough to witness stuff like this happening you may or may not know but i’ve been shipping exo’s kai and D.O since 2013 , and i’ve seen this thing you’re talking about when Korean fans hide stuff from fans in general not only International fans, for the sake of saving the boys’ careers , so yes it happens .

 for kai and D.O’s case ,a Kfan/  chinese fans saw them actually “kissing” in the dark and she recorded them doing it  but refused to release the video , i don’t know but maybe it’s  their company that convinced her to not do it or maybe other kfans did .either way she did it to save their careers because she knew that it’d destroy the whole group’s careers if the video was released since korea is still a major homophobic country.

for ji kook/ kookmin i haven’t heard of anything like that happening yet , but i’m sure that Karmy aren’t releasing everything,because they know for sure that Iarmy basically make a huge deal out of everything so there could totally be some hidden moments somewhere out there 

like that iconic backhug moment, i’m 100% positive that it was filmed by other , from different angles,with better quality cameras, but the few other people who filmed it wouldn’t release their fancams.. 

also i don’t know if “kookminword” on youtube, and the other channel who originally made the analysis of” jimin hiding in jungkook’s hotel room” are korean or not, but they deleted the analysis from youtube to protect their careers, because they knew for sure that in the case of dispatch actually seeing the video, it’d cause a huge “dating rumor” that could potentially destroy their whole careers not just the two of them but bts as whole . so they definitely made the right decision by taking it downw
