Drum corps gothic

The caption head keeps saying “one more time”. You’ve lost track of how many times he’s said it. The sun is rising.

The bus pulls into the housing site. The drum majors get off to go find the sleeping areas. They do not return.

This gym seems familiar. They all seem familiar. You can’t tell them apart anymore.

You enter the field. It is silent. There is a crowd, but no noise. There is no announcement. The drum major counts off.

Your tech tells you to go touch the fence. You keep running. You never find the fence.

The water doesn’t taste right. It is dark and tastes gamey. You think you see something move in your jug.

The vets say that you won’t hurt after three weeks. They were right. You can’t feel anything in general now.

Staff says you should get five hours of floor time, but as soon as you close your eyes, the gym lights come on.

The gym lights are motion sensored. They come on and you sit up. No one is moving.

Things disappear in the bays. Then under your seat. You worry that what’s sitting in the seat is next.

You feel your seat partner lean against you in the night. You look over and they are asleep in the aisle. You close your eyes and don’t open them until you arrive at the housing site.

The showers are dimly lit. You all stick to one side because you swear something is on the corner.

You have pasta for dinner, but it tastes like pb&j. Your cereal in the mornings tastes like pb&j. Your water tastes like pb&j. Everything tastes like pb&j.

“What state are we in?” No one can answer. No one knows. Staff won’t tell anyone.

A cloud is almost covering the sun. It does not move for the entire block.

A field judge is in front of you. He follows you for the whole show. He has a tape recorder, but doesn’t say anything into it.

You get home. No one recognizes you. You can no longer sleep on your bed. You still hear the distant clicking of a metronome everywhere you go.


Summary: Despite his youth, Eren Jaeger is one of the best and most popular doctors of the Kingdom. Among those interested on his services is included a recognized criminal clan, which does not hesitate to use the youngest of the Ackerman as bait. Eren never imagined that this “harmless” girl in red dress would get him into so much trouble, turning his world upside down.

N/A: since I deleted my blog back in March, the “read more” of my old posts is not working anymore, so I decided to re-upload chapters 1 and 2 together to make things easier for anyone who’s interested.

Art by Dani ♥ the full version of Lawless’ cover is here and there’s more related fanart here - I still have to reblog everything again, so the tag will collect more beautiful things done by Dani soon. You can also read the rest of the chapters on

Chapter 1. Crimson

Mikasa crashed against the wall backwards. Despite the hit, the coldness of the bricks did little against her accumulated body heat. Today’s training had been tough, since she had to battle against the stockiest and tallest man at Kenny’s service.

Said beast was face down on the floor, knocked out. From her position she could see how the blood dropped from his broken nose. They called him Will.

“Is he dead?”

The girl shook her head slightly, without even looking at the man approaching the scene. She needed to catch her breath and calm her heart rate. She wiped the sweat from her forehead with her forearm while she thought that yeah, she could have killed him. The idiot would have deserved it only for trying to be too clever.

“He should be dead, huh?” murmured the man in an expressionless tone, but Mikasa knew him well enough to perceive his simmering anger.

“The fucking pig”, Levi turned Will over easily with a foot, without any care at all, so he could check his face. Mikasa had done a good job wrecking that stupid face, the guy was going to look uglier than before. Usually when a training session ended like this, it was because the practice puppets had said something disgusting to her or tried something they shouldn’t have.

to all the yoi fans that ship something BESIDES viktuuri,


you are not a pedophile.  you are not disgusting.  you are not ruining the fandom.  you are not “only here for the yaoi !!!”. 

Ships are ships.  You can ship whatever you want.  You can EVEN ship things that you may not condone in real life.

I’m getting sick of the elitism that’s developing among members of the yoi fandom.  We are blessed to have a healthy, stable, romantic, and canon homosexual pairing in an anime.  I do wholeheartedly ship viktuuri.

I also ship otayuri, and that’s terrifying in this fandom.

Many shippers and fans seem to have developed this complex that viktuuri can be the only healthy, allowed, happy pairing in the fandom, and if you stray to another, you’re “only interested in yaoi, you only care about sex, you don’t really support us!!!”.  And that’s not only illogical and petty, but very upsetting.  I find it to be very similar to bullying.

The character yuri plisetsky is sixteen years old, and otabek altin is eighteen.  This is not pedophilia; this age difference is not statutory rape.  This age difference is not uncommon in relationships.  This does not make Otabek a pedophile or a rapist (it doesn’t take common sense to figure that out).

What I’ve given is only one example, and it IS right to stop and analyze ships for toxicity.  Shipping a child, wait - LET ME JUST SAY, pedophilia is an attraction to prepubescent children, 12 and underEphebophilia is the attraction to late adolescents, 16-19.  There, if you can’t seem to understand, is a huge fucking difference.  I am not condoning either; I do, most definitely, condemn pedophilia.  Shipping a child with an adult is abhorrent and can never, under any circumstances, be healthy. 

Yuri Plisetsky is not a child.  Besides Minami, from what I understand of their ages, all characters are capable of consenting to a romantic relationship.  So, stop going into the tags of the characters and ships that aren’t involved in the oh holy, oh righteous, oh perfect, harmonious, blessed by our lord Viktuuri and making those who still do what, guess what, pretty much everyone in every fandom does - having fun.  Let us enjoy what we damn well please.  Thank you.

tl;dr - quit shaming ships in the yoi fandom that aren’t viktuuri, and stop bullying people with other ships.

EDIT: Minami is 17, not 13 as I had thought, so NO CONSENT ISSUES WITH ANYONE!

i know the shots of nct for nylon are really like, gray and dark and i kept seeing them edited WAY too bright so i edited them all myself, brightened (hopefully not too much), sharpened, and topazed and was wondering if anyone would be interested in them?? tbh if i share them then people are welcome to use them on their blogs or whatever, i just wont want them to be re-edited (at least not without my permission).

the difference looks something like this (but sharper, since this was resized~)

Ghosts Can't Play Exy Pt.3

Wow this is over 1,500 words so Ima put most of it under a cut my lord. Shout out to @persistentplutonium for helping me with this and @andrewsneil and everyone else who liked this. Again, tw for minor gore, violence, and suicide and overdose mentions (still not too much tho). 

 Pt. 1 Pt.2 Pt.4 Pt.5 

  •  Neil knew Andrew was a problem from the beginning 
  •  But to push him off of the roof??? 
  • He could’ve been alive 
  • He could’ve been one of the foxes 
  • He says as much to the medicated Minyard 
    •  “But you weren’t.”
    •  “Fuck you.” 
  • Neil is close to pushing Andrew off of the roof 
  • This kiddo is insane, what if he’d suspected Matt was a ghost and tried this 
  • He’s even more of a threat now
  • But Andrew wouldn’t have done it if he wasn’t sure 
  • It takes the rest of the semester for Neil to see that
  • Andrew doesn’t tell him, he doesn’t feel he needs to justify himself to anyone 
  •  But Neil studies Andrew much closer now 
  • He sees how Andrew analyzes everything 
  •  How he investigates things that are interesting and remembers everything about them 
  • How he and Renee deal in realistic hypotheticals where Andrew debunks certain possibilities only to be hit with another 
  • Andrew isn’t stupid enough to call someone a ghost unless he felt it was the truth

Speculation about Mon-El / Valor / Karamel


Guys, I’m keeping a list of people that wish be copied in any interesting Supergirl speculation post, mostly about Mon-El / Karamel / Valor, but anything relevant for the show really.

This would be for speculations from a pro-Mon-El and pro-Karamel perspective. RESPECTFUL and friendly disagreements are ok but I will not hesitate in blocking/ deleting haters, trolls and anyone who does not behave appropriately as per BNBR policy below.

Tell me in the comments tagging me if any names should be added or removed to the list below. I will try to keep the list updated. And I will try to tag the Karamel Fam in any interesting speculation that I come across. I repost all of them in my blob using the tag ‘Supergirl Speculation’.

I still remember the first time I used the tag ‘Supergirl Speculation’ on a thread with some fabulous members of the Karamel Fam.

Now it’s a tag that we love dearly and it is this intellectually stimulating awesome safe space to bounce off ideas in this sea of impolite uncultured barbarians that is the Supergirl fandom in general.

As more people join in these speculation, I would like to propose some ground rules so we can all feel safe while doing it. Please feel free to comment on them with your suggestions, so I can update them to ensure that we all are comfortable with them.

Speculation Karamel Fam BNBR (Be Nice Be Respectful) Policy:

1. About the hottest topics/ characters - L*na and Mon-El: no matter who you like and what you ship, when it comes to these two characters, tread carefully and be respectful to the person who stans or ships someone other than your fave. Don’t attack Mon-El/ Karamel in a speculation thread related to it and don’t attack L*na in a thread about her. Jokes about antis are acceptable, if are in an appropriate speculation thread and in good spirit. If you want to talk directly or more harsly about haters, it’s better if you do not do it in a speculation thread and open a specific thread about whatever you want to point out. As a reminder, this is the list of people who want to speculate from a pro-Karamel and pro-Mon-El perspective, so if you are unable to be respectful about that, these are not your threads and the Karamel Fam is not interested in your comments.

2. It would be nice if the Karamel speculation threads are places for people to bounce off ideas, so we can do guesswork for fun about fiction based on inconsistent source material. If you have an idea, solution or comic knowledge please do bomb drop it. Sometimes just discussing crazy ideas is the best part, even if you know/ suspect that it will never happen.

3. Be very polite, respectful and careful in your discourse, especially if you are moving from the territory of bouncing off ideas to debating. Please refrain yourself from policing ideas. You may not agree with someone else’s speculation but you don’t need to convince them that they are wrong. Be extra nice when you disagree with someone.

4. Debating cannot include condescending remarks, personal attacks, talking down and arrogance, especially in regards to a field in which you are no more an expert than the person you are challenging. None of us have real evidence about future storylines so we all can be wrong.

5. Hate/ shaming/ mocking/ attacking real people is NOT acceptable. Not about actors, producers, fans or shippers. Do not send hate messages, make hateful comments about people or try to make people feel bad for writing metas or fanfics, making gifs or fanvids, speculating, commenting, enjoying hotness, doing their work or having different opinions or preferences than you. We want nothing of this in the Karamel fandom and in our speculation threads. Just don’t do it. If you do, we don’t want anything to do with you.

6. Just remember, the only form of debate that is acceptable in the Karamel fandom is respectful agreement or disagreement. Have fun and enjoy!

anonymous asked:

At first the bargain between Rhysand and Feyre was something I considered romantic. Like coming full circle. But then the more I thought about it the more uncomfortable I was becoming with it. I do not know how to feel about it still honestly.

It does not sit well with you because it really shouldn’t. It is extremely problematic. It was detrimental to the whole evolution of the relationship of Rhysand and Feyre and honestly a very sour note.

And the underlined message of this conclusion is extremely unsettling. And the way it is presented even more.

Think about what that bargain actually meant. Yes Rhysand and Feyre have a very long life expectancy and are considered immortals however they are not. Not really. This is why they can procreate. This is why there is a history of many High Lords in the line of succession. Come to think about it both Rhysand and Feyre in a span of a year died. Life even for High Fae is not a certainty. Their mortality is not out of reach. And no one can predict the future. They could live for centuries, or forever or they could die tomorrow. This is the premise of their story. But according to that they made a bargain where they made a pact of death. A suicide pact in truth.

Just the idea that one person cannot survive the death of their beloved one (or of anyone for that matter) and wants to die along with them aka commit instant suicide so not to face a world without another person is beyond unhealthy. And it sends all the wrong messages. And there are people that consider it to be the highlight of a romance when it is really an abusive conclusion in a journey that was meant to be anything but such.

Also….MORONS! We are talking about MORONS. How these people survived is beyond me. Aside all of their melodrama and constant failed planning how exactly did Feyre and Rhysand survive? Let us think about it. Let us think about it HARD.

Feyre survived her death because Rhysand was alive to pull her back. Rhysand survived his death because Feyre was alive to hold on to him and force the others to bring him back. If they had already made that bargain before the final battle for example they would not be alive now. They would be dead. How romantic would that be.

Life is precious. When you love someone you want then to live. With or without you. Even after you. Life does not begin and end with a love story no matter how epic and powerful in might be. When you love someone you want the best for them. You want  them to truly live. You fight and you struggle and you make sure to love yourself too so to give love to others. You want those that you love to survive. You fight for them, and their happiness and their survival. That is the point of fighting. You fight for yourself and for those you love. If you go first you should want for those you love to find the strength to live and survive and move on from the pain and the loss and smile again. You want to be able to live through them again through every smile and memory and every act of life. You want them to build their life again. And if you are the one left behind then you honor those that have passed before by living. You honor the love you felt for them by loving yourself as they did you. And you live. First for you. Then for keeping alive those your love in memory and carry them with you. You mourn. You move on. You laugh and love again.

Otherwise what is the point? This story in the acotar universe was supposed to be a journey of love but also a journey of how survivors overcome their trauma and get to live. How they stand on their two feet. How they become strong individuals again and not just shades of people they used to be. Where did that go? Feyre loved Tamlin but no matter how much she loved him in the end she had to move on from him. For her own sake. So what is the message here? That Tamlin was an abuser but since Rhysand is not it is okay for Feyre to enter a controversial codependent relationship with him to the point where even her life will be forfeit without him? Vice versa the same counts for Rhysand. I am sorry but what the actual freaking bullshit is this?

Also should we talk about the promise of children. Both Rhysand and Feyre know that sooner or later down the road they will have at least a son. They have seen his face. How can you make a bargain that could potentially even leave your child an orphan down the road? What if one of them dies when their kid is still a child? What then? Oh how romantic for a baby or a kid or a teen to lose both of its parents because they got entangled to a toxic codependent relationship where they ended up making a bargain where the one party will practically commit instant suicide if the other one dies. THAT SHIT GOES UP AGAINST EVERYTHING ACOMAF SHOWED. Feyre and Rhysand went through abuse and PTSD and slowly tried to heal their wounds again. They wanted to teach each other how to be in a healthy relationship. How to stand on their feet and survive and move on.

And yes all romantic and nice but Feyre and Rhysand know each other for what? ONE YEAR? Where they got together under a lot of traumatic pressure only to jump to a traumatic war so to do what? Promise eternity or…death to each other? Really?

Their bargain ties each other beyond any future choice. It is actually abusive in its core. It leaves no opening for any life beyond their relationship.

All that build up and gone. Gone in the last two pages. I just. I can’t. I CANNOT!

And no one! No one ever dare to come and tell me that that shit was romantic! It was not! It was sick. This is not a re-edition of Mariah carey’s I can’t live without you!

This was a story that many people and especially teens looked up to. This was promoted as a healthy representation against domestic abuse. This was presented as the story of two SURVIVORS that now can’t survive without each other. Can’t live for themselves. They do not care about what they will leave behind. They do not care for life. They do not care for their friends. They do not care for their families. They do not even care for their duties. They are High Lord and High Lady of the Night Court. They have responsibilities far beyond their selfish purposes. What if they both die and the mantle passes on to Keir for example or someone like him? What happens to their people then? To everything they fought for? All gone. Just like that.

And not to mention that if for example Rhysand for whatever reason dies tomorrow he will still be a dude that has lived several lifetimes. He is older than 500 years. He has lived his life. He is far more experienced. Feyre is younger than 20. A girl that has barely lived and loved and one that was abused in such a degree (by her family, Tamlin, UtM etc) so now feels blessed and gratitude that is loved by someone that actually cares for her and so she ends up making a pact with a very old dude to die if he dies. And it is equally dysfunctional for Rhysand too. He makes that bargain while he is in a mental state of being freshly released from 50 continuous years of imprisonment, torture and rape and after recently participating in a horrific bloody war with thousands upon thousands of casualties where he actually died himself too. He made the bargain while he is still dealing with this kind of PTSD when just weeks before he wanted nothing more than to fight in order to save Feyre and make sure that even if he died she would survive no matter what. That was his goal. To fight for her and to have her live to fight another day and live her life even if he would not. If push came to shove he was ready to sacrifice himself for her to live. And all of that suddenly shifted and… yay let us die together in the future.

And after all the messages ACOMAF promoted in the end what does this story say? Hey, find your love but if your love dies go and die too so to be together even in death. Suicide and unhealthy psychological reliance to each other FTW.

And you know what? I would not mind it half as much if this was presented for what it truly is. But this was glorified. Romanticized and worst of all presented under the guise of being a healthy representation of a balanced love story. At least with Romeo and Juliet you would tell that they were too young and too stupid …but here after the war and everything that happened they end on that note!

You have no idea how much I shipped them and still do and to end their story like that? It hurts! It really REALLY DOES!

Well done. Well FUCKING DONE! Way to go. 

I get all of my French from reading hamilton fanfictions. Like I literally can speak quite a load of phrases in French because F A N F I C T I O N. And they say tumblr is a waste of time smh

Dale Pike, Labyrinth, and the Wrong Choice

The reason that Dale Pike’s poem “The Deeper Well” is tagged “Labyrinth” is for this:

“The paths are unkempt
arrows flipped; markers pried
one always tells the truth
one always lies”

The creatures in the Labyrinth change the marks Sarah has made in her attempts to move through it so she stays lost. I have to digress here into the issue of how Jareth, the Goblin King, claims he did everything for Sarah’s benefit, stole Toby away from her, made her solve the Labyrinth, played his role as her adversary because that’s what SHE expected of him, and meanwhile from her POV she’s been confused and lost and solving puzzles, and she HATES it?! And in the end he tells her “Everything I’ve done I’ve done for you”

like I just can’t think of a thing that is more us right now, ok an ARG sounded exciting, but now we are lost and frustrated, we don’t know what puzzles to solve and what is real and what isn’t, or even if the whole entire thing is just an illusion?

but if the solution is to realize “you have no power over me” I don’t even know what that means yet

Anyway “one always tells the truth one always lies” - she comes to a pair of doors with sentient knockers, she has to choose a door, a path. One knocker always tells the truth, one always lies. She chooses the WRONG DOOR and falls into the oubliette. It’s a dungeon cell that can only be accessed through a door in the ceiling, a place where you put people and forget about them. A deep well.

This is, if you think about it, also where S ends up at the end of the Dale Pike fic “The Players”. He falls down a hole into nothingness, into a room you can only exit through a ceiling, an oubliette. I’m a little lost again here but if we take the Labyrinth reference as a clue this seems to be pointing towards John making the wrong choice by shoving him through the trapdoor; I just don’t know what the Right Choice would be in this context.

Also at the end of TFP, when Sherlock passes out at the prison and wakes up back at his burnt-out house, we see him falling into black nothingness (ooze), followed by an overhead shot of him lying on the table, like he’s fallen into the room. Which has no doors. This could also be a reference to an oubliette. (Which is evidence for Dale Pike being some kind of Someone, since apparently the poem was written a year ago, (have people really checked all the dates out?) and I don’t really believe all this, except… I’m just pointing out evidence here.). In this case, though, the room is an illusion that Sherlock can just walk out of? (No idea how this ties in yet.).

With reference to the Skull on twitter and tweeting George Takei … I think most people have the sense not to do this anyway because it’s a Bad Idea, but if you want an ARG-related reason just to quiet the voices in your head a little, the solution to the Labyrinth is “you have no power over me” and the Skull was literally trying to offer us power. That was supposedly the solution to the riddle, right, power? (I already wondered if he was just lying and now I suspect he might be the one who always lies). He has no power over us and no power to give us. This is the Wrong Path.

In short, I’ve spent most of the past week wondering if I was going to give up and delete, log out, go inactive for a year or so, but I still can’t get away from the game? And does anyone know where I can watch Labyrinth online it’s been a while and I’m suddenly very very interested.

Tagging some people I have seen posting about Pike/twitter/the ARG @jenna221b @teaandqueerbaiting @worriesconstantly @teapotsubtext
(please tag anyone else who would be interested if you would like, I know there are more but it’s hard to keep track of who is still playing and who isn’t for me)

I just went and saw the new Beauty and the Beast. It’s rather amusing. After the announcement about LeFou, I remember reading someone’s prediction as to how his characterization was going to play out, and it legit did. Beat by beat. I mean, what other way would Disney have done it of course? But… yeah… 

On that note… and not to say this is a good thing per se, but during the Gaston song, I got the strong impression that Gaston would be more than happy to have LeFou as his companion. I don’t know, nothing about the performance made me feel like Gaston felt anything at all—even lust—for Belle other than the desire to ‘win’ over the ‘girl’ who everyone thinks is ‘the best.’ The only line that remotely felt like Gaston genuinely having any interest in anyone other than himself or LeFou was the ‘remember the widows’ line. 

But he was more than happy to have LeFou lounge across the back of his chair like a cat. The only thing to cheer him was LeFou serenading him. He was more than responsive to all of LeFou’s touches and embraces. In fact, the one where LeFou asks ‘too much?’, when Gaston is legit embracing him and LeFou is holding his arms, that was a joint effort. That was not just LeFou. Gaston just backpeddaled away from it when LeFou asked him about it (probably because he was confused how it got so far when he never would have dared to dream…). 

He felt very much to me like a man trying desperately to keep up pretenses, most especially to himself. While in the animated film, LeFou felt like a resignedly put-up-with tag-along, he felt like a genuinely valued comrade in this in a way no other person was for Gaston. In fact, the moment LeFou passes on the task of rubbing Gaston’s ears, Gaston is alarmed to realize it’s not LeFou—well before he realizes it’s some other (grimy) dude. 

I don’t know that this take away/interpretation does the movie any credit. If this were the case, it would still be giving us only villainesque queer representation with the primary villain’s motives stemming from his queerness. I’m sure too it wasn’t at al intentional by anyone writing the script (who knows if the actor did it intentionally… though doubtfully). Still, it was interesting to realize that that interpretation felt more organic than any other being attempted on screen to explain his actions. 

Anyone else get this feeling? Especially my mutuals? 

  • me: *watched ninjago when there were only two seasons and hasn't since*
  • movie: *comes out*
  • me: maybe I should rewatch it! *does so*
  • me, having rewatched the first five episodes: I wonder if anyone on Tumblr has drawn more realistic interpretations of the characters *goes into the tag*
  • tag: *characters I dont recognize* *weird ship names* *spoilers I dont understand* *references I dont get*
  • me: what the fuck
  • Anti: This ship is abusive/incestuous/pedophilic/just plain wrong.
  • Shipper: Good thing it's fiction, huh?
  • Anti: You need to use proper warnings/tags on these things!
  • Shipper: Yep, sure do! :)
  • Anti: It doesn't matter if it's fictional, it contributes to real life abuse.
  • Shipper: Nope. Media does influence people, but the difference between a mainstream story with no disclaimers and a properly tagged fanwork is miles wide. (the act of tagging a work with all the relevant triggers for abuse, etc. is mutually exclusive with "romanticizing" or validating it.)
  • Anti: Fine, I guess it's ok, but only if you're a survivor using it to cope.
  • Shipper: Nope. I don't need to present my history for you to scrutinize, and neither does anyone else.
  • Anti: What if I just ask whether or not you're a survivor of abuse?
  • Shipper: Nope! Still none of your business! :)
  • Anti: Ok, you can make whatever you want, but you're not allowed to share it. Don't post it. Anywhere. It's not that I think your coping mechanisms are shameful or anything, I just think you should pretend they don't exist!
  • Shipper: Again, NO. We have a right to community, to share our creative output for other people's healing and growth. YOU have a right to blacklist it.
  • Anti: You're gross/disgusting/icky/eeevil!
  • Shipper: :)
  • Anti: I'm gonna spam your ship tags with gore and other content designed to Trigger (or at the very least Upset) you.
  • Shipper: :/ ...I guess this means you're giving up all pretense of "just trying to protect people", huh?

The first installment will be posted on Saturday, April 29th. (We had so many awesome writers sign up that we decided to start a week earlier than originally planned.) With our current roster we should be posting well into September, so settle in for a fun ride!

The Ryder Files                                                                                                  -        tagged by @meonlyred

Sara Alexandra Ryder

Combat Class: Operative - cloak sniper

Personality Type: Logical & professional

Love Interest: Liam Kosta

Major Decisions: Podromos is a military base, saved the Angara prisoners, told Scott the truth about Alec but not the reality of the situation, sided with Sloane, saved the krogan scouts, nominated the Moshae as ambassador

Other relevant Information: She has tried to make Alec proud by following in his footsteps, but it never felt like enough. In a way that made her who she is, a serious overachiever and try-hard. She was always more like him than her brother was.

She does have a real passion for learning and discovery. People find her serious (overly) and thoughtful. Prone to impulsive action in the heat of the moment - I think she tries very hard to present as someone capable, but she still has a lot of maturing to do.

I love her relationship with Liam because he’s very emotional and he pulls her out of her shell a bit. For him she’s an anchor, keeps him from flying off into outerspace. 

The game is tell us about your Ryder(s) and use the tag “ryder files” so anyone playing the game can learn about them, even if they’re not following you.. Tag three friends who might be interested, and check the tag often to see what other Ryders are out there!

Tagging if you want to do this! @gomjabbars @annakie @hydrospanners

You Bring me Good in my Lonely Life

Summary: Michael Jones was nothing but trouble. Rumours spread about him like a wildfire, a virus, a plague. They say everything he touches burns.
Gavin Free is the new kid, the perfect student, the golden boy. Pure.
But nothing is pure in Los Santos for long.
And maybe Gavin Free wants to burn.
Pairing: Mavin
Word Count: 8,223 words
Warnings: unhealthy relationships, implied/referenced alcohol abuse (see AO3 for more)
A/N:Lowkey(highkey) inspired by this. (I love this fic so much, I credit most of the philosophical talk to that fic honestly). A lot of talk and lines were heavily inspired and borrowed from that fic (it’s all that lovely author’s) but I tried my best to give it my own flair and fit this idea into pre-fahc.Not my views at all, I just wanted to write something like this. I hope this makes sense~ Feel free to ask me questions about what happened. Also, they’re probably OOC, but I tried to make their prominent personality traits stay the same, as with other fics.

[ Read on AO3 ]

Gavin is the golden boy. The new foreign student slipped into their lives seamlessly; parents fawned over him, students flocked around him. Perfect student, perfect clothes, perfect looks, perfect values, perfect son, perfect charm. Perhaps, the most attractive feature in him, one of the blinding things about him, was that he was pure.

In a city like Los Santos, nothing is pure.

He has no bite to his tongue, no malice behind his actions. Smiles were genuine, laughs weren’t forced. People crave that.

He was pure, until he wasn’t. Tainted in the form of golden curls, freckles, and bursts of oranges reflecting against skin. As the old adage goes: curiosity killed the cat.

frozenwings267  asked:

Question about you asylum au (witch is fantastic btw): how often does cartoonz or anyone else get out? I mean is it often enough that the staff is kinda used to it, or does it still cause alarm?

It is very common for Cartoonz to escape his room. He isn’t a threat to the staff since they know that the main reason he leaves is to get a cup of coffee or soft drink. So they aren’t fazed when they see him walking around the building.
If it was someone else who had escaped it would make the workers freak out a little and quickly get the patient back to their room straight away but no alarms will be set off.
The only people that set off the alarms when they escape from their rooms are Delirious, chilled, and mini (at the moment anyway. Nanners will as well but I haven’t added him into the au properly yet) because they are dangerous and are a threat to the workers safety.

Hopefully this answered your question~
I do have a rough idea of a small comic that involves delirious escaping. But I don’t know when I’ll finish it so don’t expect it anytime soon.
I’m happy that you like the au. It’s taken me a while but at least I’m finally interested and ready to draw more for the au again.

Not all trans people are thin

There used to be a plus size clothing swap blog for trans people. It does not look like it’s still active.

So if anyone wants to start their own swap blog- I’d be happy to boost it. Send me an ask and let me know if you do.

Until someone does that- let’s try this as an alternative.

If you have plus size clothes that you are willing to send to a plus size trans person, make a post and tag this blog in it so I can help you signal boost. 

Say what you have, in what size and describe the clothes a bit. Pictures would be great if you have them. Once you have a taker, delete the post and y’all can do private messages to get addresses to each other. 

It’d be great if you don’t ask for money for the clothes, unless you need shipping help. 

Please do not ask for the clothes if you don’t need them. If you don’t like the clothes you get, please pass them on to someone who can use them.

Plus size clothes are a precious resource, so let’s try to make the best use of what we can spare.
