@ifellforfandoms replied to your post: At this point I just want my happy guilty pleasure…

ikr. everything is slowly getting messed up and the episodes, they’re just.. wrong. like we all know how the books are written, they’re filled with every pair’s moments but malec. Magnus and Alexander, they’re nowhere to be seen! so obviously, my only hope was the show which is also changing in the worst way possible. im genuinely afraid that the show will end and we won’t get what we’ve been wanting so freaking badly! they’re both in a really awkward situation rn.
their logic amazes me. oh, so cimon, which became a thing just an episode ago gets a scene where they act all “super cute”(*sigh*), we get to see the close ups and everything, but the only malec scene we’re left with, is the god damn fight when the creators have been working to create this amazing relationship since season 1?? like??? don’t they get that literally NO ONE likes to see climon kiss? we’re here dying to see malec, and they’re giving us everything but that.
that’s just the main thing i’m pissed off about. but i dont want the part i really liked to be left unnoticed. the malec talk. that was a relief, i really liked it. can’t say it was completely enough though, they have so many things to discuss. but it was something, and i’d been waiting for it, so im glad they finally talked about the stuff that needed more attention.

I am still amazed who thought that coming up with Climon and making it such a huge thing in the show was a good idea. Like…. as you said NOBODY cares for them. Nobody wants to see this. And it is not just the Malec fandom. Clace fans don’t want this bs either! So honestly…. who came up with this bs? I mean I’m all here for Climon brotp but this romantic crap rn? Nope, nope, nope.

At this point we would be happy to see at least Malec interacting, showing some intimacy…. bread crumps, be would be happy with literally anything that lasts more than 1 minute. Instead we see them fighting (artificial fight from the start to cause more drama….wtf?) and they barely have time for a conversation. All their scenes feel like truncating and you are left wondering…. wait…. what happened inbetween??? But hey, let’s show the audience all the “cute” Climon scenes that nobody asked for in the first place.

Nobody in the fandom expects a Malec show but Magnus and Alec are two main characters and you treat them like shit lately. But you still promote the shit out of it (because you somehow know they are the cash cow!) and then are surprised when the Malec gets annoyed? The nerve, I swear. This is really getting ridiculous rn. Which makes it even more “funny” since everybody knows how popular Malec already was in season 1. And now they are sidelining them whenever possible. Where is the logic???

I can’t think of anything I want more than to watch the sunset with you, Little Prince

The Little Prince - @martin-du-creff. So fun fact, when I pulled this prompt out of the hat this morning I didn’t actually know the story of the Little Prince. I had a vague idea it had something to do with that picture I kept seeing of someone on a little planet, but I decided to learn more before I chose a sketch idea. I found a two hour audio book on youtube, and thought it would be nice to listen to a cute little story. I was not prepared to feel what I felt. I really wasn’t ready to spend the rest of my life worrying about whether the sheep has eaten the space rose. 

Anyway, I decided to draw something happy to make myself feel better. The proportions on this are wildly off, as usual. Call it an artistic style? If you’re feeling generous? Either way I hope you enjoy the idea of everyone watching the sunset together.

Hey Liza, is it just me or did A&Es tone come off much better in this interview than normal. Like especially with the engagement question I was pretty surprised with the way they answered it, they didn't really imply that it could be another couple (weird Henry jokes aside) so I was surprised. I also didn't mind how they answered the duet question tbh. And just overall the way they phrased things seemed better too. Thoughts?

I tend to agree with you.  I read it and I wasn’t annoyed with them so that is positive progress in my book, lol. 

You hit most of the highlights, even though there were a few jokes, they seemed to take the questions seriously and were committed to real teases even if they couldn’t spoil. Plus neither angered my with some off handed comment about gross characters being awesome. 

Definitely better than average for an A&E interview

Midnight’s Daughter

Just read the first two chapters and I’ve got two primary thoughts about it: 

1) This is already a much better first book than TtD, and I think it’s partly because there’s just way less infodumping but also because we just have these really solid character interactions and relationship set ups straight away. In the Cassie books all the relationships develop really slowly and I think the only one that remains consistent from book 1 is Cassie and Billy. In MD though, the two primary relationships of the books are introduced pretty much straight away, LC/Dory and Dory & Mircea and they’re just instant fun. LC and Dory have a great ‘meet cute’ (”You’re sitting on him”) and Mircea and Dory just have this fantastic tension from the outset, you can feel years and years of history just simmering away beneath the surface of all their interactions and it gets me invested straight away. 

2) I like Mircea so much more in these books, it’s ridiculous. I just don’t get that awful fake vibe that he has in the Cassie books, the constant sense that he’s being manipulative. He’s cranky, he’s snarky, he bitches, he demands - it’s just so much more of the real person beneath the masks and it’s way more likable.

You don’t get better on the days when you feel like going. You get better on the days when you don’t want to go, but you go anyway. If you can overcome the negative energy coming from your tired body or unmotivated mind, you will grow and become better. It won’t be the best workout you have, you won’t accomplish as much as what you usually do when you actually feel good, but that doesn’t matter. Growth is a long term game, and the crappy days are more important.

How to Turn off Negative Thoughts

1. Notice when you are slipping into negative, absolutist ways of thinking where you think the worst of yourself, your life and your future.

2. Recognise that these are habitual ways of thinking. It’s what you always think when you start to feel bad.

3. Be aware of triggers. Often certain people and situations trigger painful, negative self-destructive thoughts. Try and distance yourself from these, or completely avoid them, if you possibly can.

4. Deliberately look for the counter arguments. For example, when have things been a bit better, when have you done something right, when has someone been kind and understanding?

5. Visualise positive things that make you happy, such as curling up with a book in bed, listening to your favourite music, and so on. Often changing our thinking to things that make us happy changes our negative feelings and thoughts.

6. Get into the habit of building yourself up, so you notice and affirm your successes, strengths, good intentions and positive traits.

She was so much better at being alone; being alone came more naturally to her. She led a life of deliberate solitude, and if occasional loneliness crept in, she knew how to work her way out… Or even better, how to sink in and absorb its particular comforts.

It does not count if you believe in yourself when it’s easy to believe in yourself. It does not count if you believe the world can be a better place when the future looks bright. It does not count if you think you’re going to make it when the finish line is right in front of you. It counts when it’s hard to believe in yourself, when it looks like the world’s going to end and you’ve still got a long way to go.
That’s when it counts. That’s when it matters the most.

Everyone is born, but not everyone is born the same. Some will grow to be butchers, or bakers, or candlestick makers. Some will only be really good at making Jell-O salad. One way or another, though, every human being is unique, for better or for worse.

I’ve learned a lot this year.. I learned that things don’t always turn our the way you planned, or the way you think they should. And I’ve learned that there are things that go wrong that don’t always get fixed or get put back together the way they were before. I’ve learned that some broken things stay broken, and I’ve learned that you can get through bad times and keep looking for better ones, as long as you have people who love you.

i think sometimes people get confused when characters are criticised from an entirely in-universe viewpoint instead of the out of universe viewpoint

like, if we look at the harry potter books from outside the narrative, dumbledore’s choice to leave harry with the dursleys makes sense. jkr wanted harry to not know about the wizarding world so that the reader could learn alongside him and she could establish her universe, and a good way to do that was for him to grow up as a muggle and not learn until the events of the book.

but from an in-universe perspective, the same events are a lot more complicated. dumbledore could have done other things - even if he had to leave harry with the dursleys because of lily’s love magic, he could have had mrs figg or his other agents keeping a closer eye on harry and actually taking care of him with the dursleys were abusive, he could have threatened the dursleys into treating harry better (as they start to treat him a little better once harry starts using sirius’ existence as a threat), he could have made it so that harry grew up with a support network outside the house who could possibly give harry the information he needed about his life and treat him well even if harry was still technically living with the dursleys

and that’s a distinction that sometimes people seem to forget

2017 has to be better, has to be less sharp. 

2017 holds endless possibilities, and maybe it is our duty to be open to them rather than fearful of them. Maybe we have to make 2017 better. 

I don't know how to go from drowning in my own tears in 2016 to at least surfacing in 2017 to finally breathe fresh air again.

My hope for you in 2017 is you find good people, that people love and cherish you the way you haven’t been shown how yet. I hope that you become fearless in being yourself, I hope that you master being unapologetically you. 

I hope that you are kind to yourself, that you know that change doesn’t happen in a day, but if you work hard on change, one day you will wake up and see how far your baby steps have taken you.

Promise me that in 2017 you won’t sacrifice yourself for those that weigh you down, for those that put you down and the ones that make you feel less than them.

Finally, don’t be afraid to be alone in 2017. You can be alone, but you don’t have to be lonely. Love yourself unconditionally, surround yourself with good people and enjoy your own company. Don’t change to fit into someone else’s dream, be the centre of your own story.

—  Have a happy and safe New Year, I’ll see you on the other side.
