but tags that say that get more notes

Long distance is not easy.

It is not easy to watch someone through a screen instead of your eyes tracing the curves of their face while they’re standing in front of you.

It’s not easy to have a bad day and not be able to see one of the only people that can make it better. For something exciting to happen and not be able to celebrate about it that night.

To not be able to have brunch on Sunday morning, or make dinner plans for when you get off work, or snuggle up together on the couch for one of the nights a tv show comes on that you both love.

Sometimes you miss them so much and it’s like you can’t get relief from it. Sure, you plan times to see each other but some nights are bad and you need them right now and you need to touch them or you’ll die and your heart has never felt so lonely.

Long distance is not easy but one day it will be worth it. One day you’ll live in a cute apartment together where you can wake up next to each other and fuck each other to sleep and a see you later means see you tonight when we get off and it’s time for dinner. Long distance is a choice. It’s a commitment to say, “I love you more than all of the distance between us.”

—  you will always be worth it
Writing is Hard, Pt. 2: Description

Summary: Dean wants to write a second story.

Read Part 1

Warning: Smut, dirty talk, use of a vibrator, all kinds of fan fiction clichés

Word Count: 4000ish

A/N: This is all written with love for fan fic. I’m teasing, not putting it down in any way. Hope you enjoy! XOXO


Your laptop is screaming at you from its spot on the motel table.

You ignore it.

It’s not like you’ve been waiting all day to check it. It’s not like you were impatiently stomping around as you folded clothes with Sam and Dean in the laundromat, as they took their sweet time at the grocery, as Dean dragged you to some fucking hardware store because he needed a specific type of wrench (the six identical wrenches he already owns just aren’t enough).

(Woooo more prompts! Woooo SNAPE 😍 Hope it is as requested and you all like it :3 Gif not mine/found it on google/credit to the original owners.)

-Him trying to not pay too much attention on you while you’re in class as he finds it to be a distraction and fears you might both get caught but always finding himself staring at you more than often, thinking about how cute and beautiful you are in deep thought

-You being the only one he lets make a few jokes and comments while in his class as he enjoys hearing you, all while trying to not laugh himself and pretend to tell you off 

-The two of you always meeting up in the halls as you’d both pretend to wander around while everyone is asleep, only for him to always have to pretend to scold you and tell you that he’ll punish you for you breaking school policy whenever someone else’s witnesses you both

-Him being mean or simply angry at you for something and telling you that you have detention for your behavior, only for it to usually end up with him punishing you the way you deserve it all while you have to keep yourself quiet

-Passing notes to each other while he teaches, whether he’s lecturing you or you’re getting up to see him at his desk, just to have a moment where you can both express your feelings to one another

-Him always writing to you while you’re out during the holidays and the summer, only to surprise you on numerous occasions by going over to your house and take you away for a quiet moment together

-Him getting uncertain about your relationship and just acting out on it, suddenly trying to push you away until you’d snap at him and have him come out clean with his reasoning for his attitude, making you have to cheer him up and reassure him about how much you want and love him

-Him really not being biased towards you and actually telling you to do better when you’d fail an exam, only to tell you that he’ll help you study if you need it

-Him actually loving how affectionate you are to him, from your little hugs and kisses and just not wanting you to stop but always moving away earlier than expected and telling you to cut it out as he really gets scared of being caught and having to lose all of you

-Him not really saying that he loves you unless he really feels the need to let you know but instead he spends more time showing it to you from the way he’d get you out of trouble to the little encouraging notes he’d leave for you

“Let’s go home.”

Mary, Sam, Dean, and Cas walk out of the barn slowly.

Mary takes a deep breath and, with her head down, heads straight for her car.

Sam looks to Dean, who stares at Cas, nods, then follows Mary.

Cas looks at Dean, and for a moment they just stare at each other in silence.

Sam and Mary whisper quietly in the distance.

Cas opens his mouth to say something, but before he can Dean has his arms around Castiel’s waist and his head in Castiel’s neck.

Cas wraps his arms around Dean as well, seeming to say that he meant what he said, that the Winchesters are family.

Dean takes a deep breath and sighs into Cas. He strengthens his hold around his waist.

And in his relief, Dean decides to say what he should have said long ago, and now only with the courage that comes from hearing it said to him first.

“I love you too.”

Hey guys, I finally made a commissions post!  If you’re interested in commissioning me, please contact me via the tumblr messaging system or by sending me an email at doctorsatrn@gmail.com (no “u” in saturn) and leaving me an ask letting me know you sent one!

Every time I do a pixel I post the original artwork, and then a zoomed in version.  So if you’re a fan of the zoom in pixel aesthetic keep that in mind!

Seriously, I love drawing people’s OCs, never be afraid to ask. And I’ll do fanart of whatever you like even if I’m not in the fandom so don’t worry about that either (most of my fandoms are obscure OTL).

If you don’t receive your commission within 30 days of paying for it and I haven’t told you I’m going to be away from my computer for a period of time, you’ll get your money back.

Under the cut is just some extra notes on what I can do and a few more examples of stuff.

A Doctor’s Log (Mass Effect: Andromeda)

Summary: Being a collection of impressions, observations, and ruminations, by one Dr. Lexi T’Perro, staff physician on the Tempest. 

Notes: Spoilers abound, but specifically for Liam’s armor request and part of Jaal’s loyalty mission (through the end of “Flesh and Blood”). Pre-romance (incipient Sis!Ryder/Jaal).

This is loose, this is messy, and hopefully, this is funny. There may be more to come, but we shall see! <3

Read on: Ao3

**********

Entry One:

Our young Pathfinder certainly has a talent for finding — well, talent, in the most unusual places. From what I understand, she found our resident krogan on Eos, slaughtering the local wildlife. I believe he’s wearing the bones of his kills.

And yet, he’s charming, but anyone’s standards. A little gruff, but that’s to be expected. He and Vetra seem to be getting along famously, if what I overhear from the crew’s quarters is any indication.

Cora is still dealing with residual frustration and resentment over the Pathfinder’s role passing from Alec to his daughter, but she is a consummate professional, and after an initial tense conversation with Ryder, has allowed herself to process and grieve in private. I’ve made a note to check in with her — something Cora will be astute enough to recognize — but I foresee no future issues in that quarter.

Sometimes it’s best simply to let time and distance do all the healing work. Harry, if you ever read this, know that I can hear you smirking.

Entry Seven:

Liam continues to impress me — his good humor and willingness to reach out to everyone has defused more than a few potential arguments. I’m rather amazed at how he dismantled what could have been a rather explosive argument over the last of the Fishdog Food Shack nuggets (I shudder to think what was in them, to have lasted so long in suspension!). His loyalty is unquestioned. He’d be an asset on any team, but I’m glad he’s with us.

Ryder stayed in her quarters for an extra forty-three minutes this morning. SAM assures me she was simply working out, but I’ve made a note to watch her stress levels a little more carefully. Excess exercise may be just one symptom of a larger problem.

I do hope they’re able to wake up her brother, soon. Her role is a lonely one.

I know that as a Tumblr culture, we’re bound to care a lot about notes and reblogs…but trust me when I say that there are a ton of lurkers in this community in particular who see all of these posts but don’t really engage with them in the conventional Tumblr way. This is especially true if your content is more long-form, like articles.

Please don’t be discouraged if your posts aren’t getting a ton of notes. People are seeing them and enjoying them. I promise.

plsdontalktome  asked:

What actual rights are women denied in the west? As in by the law? Go ahead... You'll find that women have more rights than men in terms of law

*sighs* could you maybe search my tags first? You’d find about 5 other asks with this same question. I’m going to copy and paste this answer from another post I made. 

Theoretically, women are equal under the law. And yet, when you look at the numbers… 


Note: This is copied and pasted from this post.

You say rape culture doesn’t exist. And yet:

Next, this is copied and pasted from one of my own posts that I keep open to refute people like you. “Women hold power over men”. Let’s see:

  • 1 out of every 6 American women have experienced attempted or completed rape. This number is higher for certain demographics - for example, 1 in 3 indigenous/native American women will be raped in her lifetime.
  • This number is even higher for trans women (1 in 5)
  • Men are told they cannot be raped and their experiences are invalidated.
  • Being feminine is degrading in our society - hence, gendered slurs and statements
  • Many people (especially male senators in the GOP) think they have the right to control [what they perceive to be women]’s reproductive organs and dictate what they do with their bodies.
  • The Senate is only composed of 20% women.
  • A shit ton of people (including a lot of “feminists”) don’t consider trans women to be women.
  • Young men (and women) like Brock Turner still exist, and judges like Aaron Persky are still in office. The Brock Turner case was not an exception.
  • White women make 75% of what a white man makes for the same job, while black women make 63%, Latina women make 54%, and Asian women make 85%. Fucking President Obama himself acknowledged the wage gap. Don’t you come to me and say it doesn’t exist without adequate sources.
  • There are still trolls that attack me on Tumblr and Twitter, calling me slurs and threatening to rape me, simply for wanting equal rights. (Almost all other feminist blogs can attest to this). Sorry, but feminists aren’t the ones spewing rape and death threats.
  • Women are afraid to say no to unwanted advances because they could very well be hurt, but then they are criticized for “not being clear” and showing “mixed signals”.
  • People like Donald Trump can run for president and actually stand a chance at winning.
  • College students, when surveyed, said they believed that about 50% of rape allegations made were false, when really, the number is 2-8% - about the same as other crimes.
  • People still think it’s okay to catcall women. Street harassment is a problem that affects ALL women and it’s at the hands of men.
  • Young girls are forced into marriages worldwide (including in the United States!)
  • There are no regulations to ensure that sex workers are kept safe. Even if they choose to work in the sex industry (as opposed to being trafficked) they can still be assaulted or murdered, and they have no government protections.
  • Sex trafficking victims can actually be imprisoned themselves for prostitution.

anonymous asked:

Senpai, do you got any tips on starting/running a studyblr/ bujo blog?:) I'm mostly confused about the tags, what are the most important ones so everyone might see my posts?

Haha, hi there!  ✨ I’ll try to think of some tips, but I’ll mostly explain the tags and link you to other posts about starting a studyblr because these are really helpful! 

STUDYBLR TAGS

✏️  #studyblr - studying + tumblr - used for basically everything connected to studying that you post on tumblr but also - an account that posts about studying is a studyblr

 ✏️ #studyspo & #studyinspo & #studyinspiration- studying + inspiration - used for everything that inspires you to study (basically every pretty photo of notes for me)

✏️   #studymotivation - basically the same as the previous one but with motivation

✏️ #lookstudyblr - used mostly for introductory posts of studyblr users, or for posts of new studyblrs 

✏️  #babystudyblr - a baby studyblr has <1k followers, you can tag your posts that if you’re a baby studyblr 

✏️  #newstudyblr - see above

✏️  #handwriting #notes #studying #student - and basically everything connected to studying 

✏️  #stationery #supplies - for the pics of stationery, pens, washi, notebooks, etc. 

✏️  #flatlay - for the photos where everything is laid out flat on the surface and the pic is taken from above 

✏️  studyblrs tracked tags - studyblrs each have their own tag that they track! If you tag them with their tracked tag they will check out the post you tagged them in and they might reblog/like it (and you’ll get more notes), I track #nerdastically and here’s the list of tracked tags of some bigger studyblr users 

Here you have the tags. As for the tips: 

📌  post original content - it doesn’t have to be pretty or aesthetic, but people will more likely notice you if you post something that’s yours other than just reblogging

📌 icon, theme & url - have them match, both topic-wise and color-wise; also they should somehow be connected to studying, like your favorite subject, or your favorite stationery item, something that will make people say “ok it’s a studyblr” 

📌 make an introductory post - introduce yourself to the community!  Tell us more about yourself - your personality type, your Hogwarts house, your favorite pet etc. More on that in the links below!

📌 So you want to start a studyblr Part I by @lupastudies

“Why did everyone leave?”

“Because you kept saying really inappropriate things and they were getting uncomfortable.”

“Really? That’s it? I always say inappropriate things!”

“This time you were slightly more inappropriate than usual.”

“Hmmpf.”

“Do you wanna go to a movie?”

“I think the only place you’re going tonight is to bed.”

“Or what about a club? Lets go dancing!”

“Yeah, I know a really great club called Bed and that’s exactly where you’re going.”

“Really?! Is it new? I haven’t heard of that place.”

“It’s not new. It’s been in our apartment upstairs for the last few years now. We’ve been there several times. We go there every night, in fact.”

“You’re so boring.”

“And you just got shot.”

“I’m fine!”

“Felicity, you have a fresh bullet wound in your shoulder and you’re high on pain meds. You are not fine.”

a little ramble off the headcanon that Korra loves seeing Asami’s handwriting in day to day life because it reminds her of years of letters 💌 / ao3 


Asami writes Korra notes sometimes - only a few words, usually. Good morning! in the condensation on the bathroom mirror (complete with an impressively uniform heart-shape), when she knows Korra’s going in as soon as she’s out; there are fresh moon peaches in the pantry, left on the kitchen counter when Korra drags herself out of bed and Asami’s already two hours at work; or simply, love you, next to a hastily scribbled address or list or reminder, or whatever other detail Korra might require that she can’t deliver in person.

She probably wouldn’t understand the peculiarity of the sensation stirred whenever Korra comes upon these: a half second of full, deep warmth bumping up against something far more acute, something that feels a little wistful.

Asami on paper is dearly familiar.

She’s beautiful in her simple little way
She don’t have too much to say when she gets mad
She understands, she don’t let go of anything
Even when the pain gets really bad
I guess I should’ve been more like that

Reader POV

I should’ve held onto my pride, should’ve walked away just like he is with my head held high. But I guess stupidity runs in my veins. Stupidly thinking he’d want to settle down with me, have that white picket fence, Apple pie life we only dreamed about. He hadn’t promised forever, never knowing my true feelings, never figuring out how I felt about him, nor returning them. Ones I pushed aside to keep from getting hurt, and in the end they’re what done me in. Not watching Sam fall, Lucifer contained inside his body, into the cage, sealed away for the good of mankind. It’s not seeing Castiel’s vessel explode or Bobby’s neck snapped, both returned to normal thank God that has me wanting to curl into the fetal position and cry.

Request: Can u PLEASE do one with cole where he’s been spending too much time working or with lili and you get jealous so u start hanging out with Kj more and cole gets supper possessive and jealous and overprotective and like claims u as his or something fucking cute like that. 

Warnings: Mild language, using the lord’s name in vain (idk if that’s a warning or not?)

Notes: None :)

Tag List: @xbobaaa @superoriginalteenwolf @jbrhs-princess   @kindfloweroflove


*YOUR P.O.V*

“Where’s your boyfriend?”. Ross asks, coming up behind me. I point over to where Cole and Lili were laughing and joking around with each other. “Oh”, was all he managed to say. 

“Yep”, I say awkwardly, going over to the food stand and pouring myself a cup of coffee. 

—-

It’s been about 2 weeks after I arrived to the set to spend time with Cole, and I feel miserable and all I wanna do is go home, because he’s spent more time with Lili and he hasn’t been acknowledging me - his fucking girlfriend. I roll my eyes as I pass them on my way to K.J’s trailer.

“You should make him jealous”, I heard K.J suddenly say as he came up behind me, scaring the living daylight out of me. 

“Jesus, K.J. You scared me”, I gasped as I clenched my chest in fright. 

“Aw I’m sorry”, he laughed and put his arm around me. K.J and I have become really good friends and we talk about everything - even about Cole. We walk into his trailer and I sit down on the couch, whist K.J goes to the tiny kitchen and makes us coffee. 

“I don’t know what to do about Cole”, I sighed. 

“Like I said before; making him jealous”

“How though? And what good would it do anyway?”

“Spend more time with me and don’t acknowledge him.. You never know, he might actually pay attention to you once he figures out that you’re not talking to him”, he says, passing me a cup of coffee. 

“Why do I get the feeling that you’ve done this before?”

“Because I have”, he laughs. 

—-

Cole had finished a scene and was walking over to K.J and I. We were laughing and talking about a funny youtube video we watched previously.

“Hey, baby”, Cole says, kissing my cheek. 

“Hey”, I reply bluntly back, reverting my attention back to K.J. 

“Can we talk?”, Cole interrupts again.

“Yeah after I’ve finished this conversation with my friend who’s been very supportive and with me for the entire 2 weeks that I’ve been here - unlike you”. K.J smirks and raises an eyebrow at my saltiness, trying so hard not to laugh. 

“It’s okay, we’ll continue this later”, he smiles and hugs me before walking away, leaving Cole and I alone. He grabs my hand and roughly leads me to his trailer.

“I don’t appreciate how salty you’ve been to me these couple days”, Cole growls. 

“And I don’t appreciate how we’ve barely held a conversation without you mentioning or spending time with Lili”, I shot back. He rolls his eyes and backs me against the wall, placing his hands on either side of my head. 

“You’re mine. Only mine. Not K.J’s. Mine. Do you understand?”

“You know, I just love how you just completely ignore my statement”, I sarcastically say. 

“I’m sorry, Y/n”, he says quietly, looking down. “She plays my love interest in the show, and we have a kiss scene coming up, so we’re just trying to feel more comfortable around each other so it’s not awkward”, Cole explains. I sigh, taking in what he just said.

“You’re mine, okay?”

“I’m yours”

That walk. How wide his shoulders are. His expression. Damn. It all says something like “I’m the leader, I’m in charge. Don’t fuck with me. This shit isn’t new, I know you’re staring.”

Okay, to clear this up, I did NOT create this gif. I got this particular one from another page: eun-sook . Well, now that that has been acknowledged, please feel free to divert your attention/likes/re-blogs to their original post if you please, I have reblogged that post already. Now, to further clear things up, at that time, I didn’t really get how this tumblr stuff worked as far as credit and tags and reblogs were concerned (I damn near still don’t, lol *just got tagging down a few weeks ago*) and I didn’t know that you could comment on a post either. So, on my phone and just googling around, I saw the post and thought oh, that looks really cool, so I just saved it and posted it with my little commentary added to it. I didn’t think that people would assume that I’d created the gif or anything, I was more focused on what I was saying ABOUT the gif and Jinki. I wasn’t trying to steal or get over on anyone or find a way to rack up notes. Idgaf about the notes, or how many follows I get, I just honestly didn’t think about it when I posted it. So, once again, if you like the gif and would like to like it or reblog it, please use the original on eun-sook tumblr page if you want.

Me: “I want to make a high fantasy story! With adventure and magic and elves and dwarves and stuff!“

Also me: “But first let me just figure out their genetics really quick…”

(I swear I’ll get back to stuff I’m supposed to be working on soon…)

A really quick evolutionary tree of the five main races in this one fantasy setting of mine. (For more stuff check my tag #I STILL don’t have proper tag for this setting) Represented here by the main cast of the story, given how they’re very conveniently each representing each of the races.

Dwarves diverged first from the rest of the races by getting stuck on an island. They are adapted to their home island environment of ginormous dense forests and cavey rock base, so they are actually about as well adapted to climbing trees as they are dwelling in caves (hence long arms and dense muscles similar to great apes, though the muscle density also means they can’t float which isolated them from the rest of the world for such a long ass time). By a fluke they’re technically able to reproduce with humans, but the chances of that happening are very low, and the resulting offspring isn’t healthy even if it manages to survive long enough to be born. 

Humans and the elvish races were separated in different continents, and somewhere in the early development of the pointy eared kind they had a mutation that changed the number of chromosomes they had, before splitting on to orcs and elves. The pointy-ears can breed with humans, but this results in sterile offspring. (Dwarves can’t reproduce with the pointy-ear people at all.)

The elvish peoples have divided themselves pretty arbitrarily. Orcs and elves were originally separated first by a desert and/or mountain range, the orcs being more ambush predators while the elves being more of a pursuit hunters, both of them being slightly more on the carnivorous side of omnivores than humans and dwarves. The final and most recent split happening when the elves split in two groups, the other moving up north and becoming smaller and lighter in coloration, around which time the taller elves and orcs were reunited and started to mingle culturally, mostly in a friendly way. Culturally speaking the two races consider each other sisters, while othering the northern elves completely. You call a high orc an elf only to insult them.

The “high orc” is an elf term, since the “high” ones themselves don’t see the highness. They themselves consider orcs to be divided in two, to fire and earth, and that those elf people are just being arrogant by saying that since the fire orcs look more elvish they are by default of “higher” quality. The orc folks generally don’t really like elves all that much.

(Also worth noting that none of them are immortal or live to be thousands of years old. You won’t get extra free lifetime coupons in my worlds.)

anarchistredeemed  asked:

How would you go about getting your art noticed in the tags and such? Are there any specific tips you have for garnering notes and reblogs -or just plain getting noticed? I've been struggling with this for months :(

Before I say anything, I just want to say that worrying about note count is surefire way to make art Not Fun. Yes, validation is nice, but sometimes you can get more than enough of that from a small-scale, tight-knit group of mutuals.

1. Remember that more notes don’t necessarily mean something is “better”. Popular art can be sameface anime-titty women. Popular art can shitty memes drawn in 10 minutes. Popular art can be art that would have much fewer notes if it was for a smaller fandom.

2. There are a lot of factors that impact a post’s notes, one being time. I’ve found tumblr is most active around 2pm-6pm (pacific time). This might vary from person to person. How long a post has been up can also affect how much time it’s had to circulate.

3. Don’t be afraid to reblog a post multiple times. Time zones exist. Some people follow more people than others. Don’t worry about being annoying reblogging once or twice; probably more than 95% of your followers won’t even notice.

4. Don’t cross-tag. That’s obnoxious. (ex. tagging a ship or fandom that the post has nothing to do with)

5. Reblogs vs Likes vs Replies. Each are worth one note, but reblogs are the ones that are more likely to get you MORE notes. You can’t control which one other people will do, so you just kinda have to hope people are going to reblog your work rather than just like it.

6. Be nice. If you’re rude, people are gonna realize, and they’re gonna recognize your url and specifically not reblog from you.

There are A Lot more factors, especially ones you can’t control. Which is especially why you shouldn’t determine your art’s value in how many notes it has.

fav completed fic?

Duality by MsSirEy (@mssirey)

Rating: Explicit
Summary: Kara is trying to get close to Lena, while Supergirl is physical with Lena. Life is complicated. This is an examination of trust, with equal parts angst, fluff, and smut.
Note: Mind the tags. But as it says, it becomes soooo much more than smut. Coming from someone that isn’t a big fan of stories that have a lot of it, I found this fic and took a chance 6-7 chapters in and I’m so happy I did! It’s a great read and has been a favorite of mine for months and always frequents my recommendation lists. So there it is. 

Do Not Go Gentle Into That Good Night by Khrat9

Rating: Mature
Summary: Isn’t it weird, Lena thinks bitterly, how the odds keep on stacking against her? She never asked to be a Luthor. She isn’t even a real one in the first place. And yet, here she is, dragged by the arms through cold, silent corridors, surrounded by a dozen guards in their polished armor. She is bound, bruised and dirty, escorted to be judged for crimes her brother committed. Lena chuckles derisively. Not Luthor enough in her family’s eyes but enough to be punished in their stead by everyone else.
Note: I was drawn to this fic by some amazing work by @seriouslyficent and I didn’t realize how much I was going to like it. I typically don’t get much out of AUs but I loved this one, so if you haven’t give it a try!

Summary: it’s not until kara’s gone that the world remembers how important she is, but lena never needed that reminder in the first place or, lena never stops believing in the one person who believed in her
Notes: I don’t often get into fics enough to a point where they evoke emotional reactions from me. Especially with one-shots. This is one of the few exceptions. It was one of my reviewed follower recommendations from last month, so check it out.

If you haven’t read these, I hope you give them a look and enjoy them! Don’t forget to leave our fandom writers some love! 💗
