So one of my favorite books in recent years is Fairy Tale Lustby Kristina Wright, a wondrously filthy anthology of classic tales reinterpreted by a myriad of erotic writers. It’s “Happily Ever After”, except the means to those ends are delightfully smutty, essentially, and it’s glorious.
(Go read it - I promise you won’t regret it. Seriously, you’ll never look at the gingerbread man in the same light…ever again.)
Anywho, this next challenge might appeal more to the erotic (read: smutty) wordsmiths among us, but I promise there’s a place at the table for everyone. Without further ado, welcome to the Love/Sex/Magic Challenge!
The Call the Midwife fandom is great because it basically consists of about 8 and a half people crying in unison and then shitpost memes about nuns and the Gays for a week, like your fandom wishes it could be like this smol positive ball of sunshine of a fandom
When you are on Tumblr everything you read is written by an anonymous figure whose ideas you read and you can relate to. On Tumblr it is as if you know everyone but barely know them at all.
My name is Isabel and I go to school in Australia although I am half-Indian. I live in a sleepy area of Australia near to the cities and go to school with some of the most amazing people. Ever since I was in Primary school I had a great love of writing and reading falling in love with the fantasy world. I am not at all pretty with large brown biggish eyes and hair which doesn’t want to decide if it wants to be straight or frizzy.
I am horribly addicted to Sarah J Maas’ writing and have found myself trying to write a trilogy known to me and my friends as ‘The Daughter of Starlight trilogy’ which has been in progress for some time now. As the characters are based on some of my best friends the novel itself has a special place in my heart.
My Parabati (Shadowhunters reference) is known to me as Lennox who loves wearing bumblebee tights and flicking her hair dramatically while throwing glitter. My Best Friend Benedict has saved my life more than once and between the both of us I wouldn’t be surprised if we have more secrets than the word itself.
Today, I have over a thousand followers. In August when I started this fanfic blog, I didn’t think I’d get beyond a hundred, and I was okay with that.
But you all amazed me by showing up. Whether it was my works or my weirdness (or both), y’all came and showed my little page some love. And I love you all for it. So to celebrate, I have a little something that I hope you’ll participate in.
And it all started with this little gif…
So if you’ve ever seen the following films: Black Swan, Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, The Dark Half (or Secret Window), Dorian Gray, Fallen, or even Training Day, then you know the common thread these films have in common: These (among others) explore the dark side of human nature, by way of fantastic or realistic story-telling.
It’s a celebrated concept. We’ve all imagined what it would be like if we or someone we admired that was inherently good (or at least kinda neutral) just went completely evil. So far out of left field that there was no going back. Or was there?
Well, if you’re brave enough…enter the Dark Side Challenge to find out.

it is NEVER okay to god mod someone’s oc
it is N E V E R okay to force your idea about a fictional band on others!1!1!
if you are not aware, a very large and entertaining fight is going to be happening between MMA Champ Conor McGregor and Boxing Champ Floyd Mayweather.
SO HERE’S WHAT IM THINKIN
OTP AUs where Person A is the two belt holding champ of MMA and Person B is the champ in their one division of boxing (I’m a Conor fan and not Floyd and I will remind you he holds a belt in not one, but TWO weightclasses lol rip). Originally this fight came about from fans speculating who would win and m a j o r trash talk, but it’s your AU start it how you want.
Some possible suggestions would be:
• they’re on the press tour before the fight and what started as an “I hate you! You’re garbage!” relationship slowly develops into a “perhaps I was wrong about you and my heart beats when ever you’re around” thing but they still keep up the act and have to fight
• they were already secretly in love and decided this would be a quick way to make hella bank but A N G S T happens when they actually start getting real with their insults and the fight
• hate sex. yup.
• whatever you can think of!!!
Anywho I just thought this would be a fun prompt for anybody who needs “anything please I’m dying” help for writer’s block. or anybody else for that matter!
We all know f/f doesn’t get enough love. Whether it’s because of a lack of canon content, or fandom’s interests lying elsewhere, it usually gets the short end of the stick. Thankfully, February is here to rectify that - and hopefully, one day, we won’t even need the reminder!
So what is Femslash February? It started as open challenge calling on all members of fandom to create at least two fanworks of any sort (fanfic, fanart, fan vids, graphics, fanmixes, etc.) featuring a f/f ship in the month of February. I don’t know if people still follow that rule today, but to me, Femslash February is THE month to celebrate your love for the ladies. And ladies loving ladies. Not that you can’t do that every day of the year, but if you needed a good reason, here’s one!
Since the Dragon Age franchise has, let’s be honest, a whole bunch of badass ladies, and since this blog, and yours truly, have dedicated themselves to the task of reblogging them all in all their glory, I’m hoping you guys will fill up their tags with new posts, so that I can queue a LOT of content, and provide you with even more lady love!
Satya gets her a sphinx cat and Fareeha is smitten with her little goblin baby.
yes!!! yes absolutely!!!
she’s their little goblin baby and her name is Pip (it’s a palindrome which fareeha thought satya would enjoy). despite her grumpy face she is very playful and she loves to cuddle with fareeha
and fareeha loves to cuddle back because!!! It’s finally a cat she can hold!!! and not suffocate on!!!
satya got pip as a “oh this is for you” thing and didn’t expect to be as invested in her as fareeha was but.
she’s so naked so of course satya has to buy her little booties and sweaters so she stays warm. and it’s so easy to make hardlight kitty scratchers why would they spent $50 on one when satya can just make one
fareeha refuses to admit that she jumped a little in delight when satya basically modified one of her turrets to use as a laser pointer for her because honestly it’s So Damn Cute to watch pip run and chase the light and be chased in turn
satya definitely enjoys playing with pip, whereas fareeha would just cuddle with her all day
(satya blandly jokes one day that her cuddling time with fareeha has decreased since adopting pip, which starts fareeha on implementing “daily family cuddles” in which either before they leave for the day or after dinner the three of them must cuddle altogether.
it starts and ends a lot of fights tbh)
the best picture they have of all three of them is when they all fell asleep and reinhardt took it. satya fell asleep with her head in fareeha’s lap and pip curled right underneath her chin and fareeha fell asleep with her chin crushed against her chest. pip’s purring = super soothing, super lullabye
how about the boys seeing how the fandom portrays certain characters?? (Like fanon ushijima vs canon ushijima and stuff like that) hope this is clear!!
Sen: I hope @hassans-love sees this lmao. The boys looking at themselves in fanon portrayals or something, right? I admit that not all of our headcanons will be completely 100% the way that Furudate would’ve had them, obviously, but this is and always will be a headcanon blog.
He’s hurt. Really hurt. He knows that he’d never intentionally harm anyone and he’s constantly being made fun of for being socially inept which he knows himself. It’s not as if he’s obsessed with Oikawa because he only vaguely remembers saying it when they were in middle school and that he respected him. This isn’t how he wanted to be.
He swears that he’s more than just some angsty pretty face. Even at school, nobody dares to make jokes about how he’s become second to Shirabu so to think that this is what people take him for isn’t just sad but downright frustrating. Never mind saying that he can’t dress himself (which is all Tendou’s opinion), it’s just annoying to think that nobody treats him seriously.
Sometimes, he wishes that he could be seen as someone who isn’t just Wakatoshi’s friend or that rare token coloured person. He’s pretty lowkey so of course nobody really notices him, but he’s lacking in appreciation and he knows it really shouldn’t bother him but it just does. Though, he’s actually more annoyed at the fact that his best friends are mischaracterised so horriblly.
It’s a pretty mixed reaction. While he’s appreciative of people looking into his backstory, he knows that he honestly shouldn’t be excused for his occasional rudeness and infantilized by people who are probably younger than him anyways. But at the end of the day, at least people are at least giving him some form of positive attention.
Another mixed reaction. He’s very grateful of the fact that people see him as strong, but underneath that, he’s slightly conscious of how people treat him like a child. He may be only a first year, but he’s someone who’s had to compete against others to be a starting player and to be just called people’s “little mushroom child” feels like all his hard work to grow up is being ignored.
He knows he isn’t a slave to anyone, whether it be to his studies or some obsession with Ushijima’s strength. There’s no way he’s just some short angry guy, he knows this himself; he’ll get briefly annoyed by it but it’s not something that would make him furious, as people tend to show him to be. He respects his teammates and is honestly offended when people say that he’d be outright rude to his upperclassmen, especially Semi after he took his place.
Nobody actually takes him seriously, at least from his own perception. They just think of him as that one serious blocker with a pretty face but never actually realise how much work he puts into it at all. He knows he’s quiet enough as it is, but for people to say that it’s all that there is to his character makes him very annoyed.
He’s pretty sure the only reason that everyone knows his name is because his birthday’s on valentine’s day. And half of the fanart that he’s seen of himself is just him losing his phone, and while it was funny at first, it just got annoying because he couldn’t see anymore humour in an overused joke. Though, he’s lucky that he’s not as popular as the others are, otherwise he might have gotten worse characterisation and he’s not one to complain about that.
listening to Hero by Skillet made me start thinking… Lana saves the Outlander thinking they’re the hero they need. They are who’s going to turn this galaxy around, unite everyone, and save them all.
The ironic thing is Lana is the hero that the Outlander needed cause they were dying and Lana doesn’t see that. She is so fucking selfless that she doesn’t see herself as important. Her. Leader of what’s left of Sith Intelligence, Co-Founder of the Alliance, discovered Odessen, discovered that Darth Arkous was a traitor, was branded a traitor and forced to be on the run for a few months to expose him and the Revanites to save the galaxy, helped end Revan, and did every last fucking thing she could to save Ziost when the situation really was completely and utterly hopeless.
