dystopian-wars

Tonight I finished off the two Ika Class Mechanical Squids for my Empire of the Blazing Sun fleet.
I really like these models, the sculpts are great!
They also go really well with the rest of my fleet, and I’m definitely going to be painting up more of the models I have waiting to join the Empire on the high seas!

Happy Hobbying!

With New Years Eve approaching, I thought I’d take the time to summarize 2012. More specific, I thought I’d gather everything I painted during 2012, considering I challenged a few of my friends (and everyone else that wanted to) to a bit of a Motivational Challenge. The Challenge was to paint one unit in a game of your choice every month for 2012 (started in march). So here’s pictures of all my pledges and finished units. As you can see there are alot of different models/armies/units from a number of different games.

Now, for 2013 I hope to continue painting, and perhaps finish my 2nd Legion List, add new units and warjacks to my Khador, paint the Swarmlord and a Flying Hive Tyrant for my Tyranids, and much much more.

So, to end I thought I’d wish you all a Happy New Year and hope to see more painted miniatures next year. And finally, what did you paint during 2012?

Resurrected Recollections by Meowmers: She remembers. (Tomione. Lots of violence, It’s how they express their love for each other.)

Room 114By: ImmortalObsession The new English teacher, Miss Granger, is in dire need of a glass of red wine. Actually, she needs the entire bottle after a detention with Hogwarts’ worst and wickedest student: Number One. He is otherwise known as Tom Riddle, the boy-demon that rotates between moments of insufferable sass and brilliance. And he likes her tight stockings very much.

The experiment by thekarmapolice  She entered his shop one rainy afternoon. A Tomione short story. AU. 


Dark Games  by thekarmapolice  “She showed up on Halloween night, with her big hair, her big mouth. Her magic touches the darkness of my soul, my name on her Mudblood lips sounds foreign. She began this dangerous game.” Her best friends knew that she was lost, trapped in a place of darkness. They would do anything to find her, even face the Dark Lord once again and break the circle of time.

 Punish the Stars by ReneeHart  When Hermione Granger, an Unspeakable, is given the task of researching Lord Voldemort’s horcruxes, she doesn’t expect to be placed in any danger. But after a potion goes wrong and Tom Riddle’s soul becomes bound to her own, she finds herself quite literally haunted by the former Dark Lord. One who is hell bent on coming back to power, with or without her.

Shadowheart by Lucrece01  “What do you want from me?” he whispered, running his fingers down her back—she shuddered violently, recklessly at the pooling streams of wanton ecstasy—her shoulders snapped backwards and she grabbed his collar for support.

Anima Vinctum by Conpostus  Hermione is forced to fight for her soul, and the unanticipated person attached to it.

Redemption by Meowmers  Everything was falling apart and she wasn’t sure what was building in its place. She only had the certainty that something was building.

She met his gaze dead on and matched his tone when she replied, “Except me.” (Damned Sequel) Tomione.

Blood and Gold by ObsidianPen  The true time-turner was slammed savagely into Hermione’s throat. It shattered against her neck, bits of glass and gold piercing into her skin. The last thing she saw before blackness consumed her was a plume of metallic dust and vitreous fragments, like tiny prisms dancing behind her eyelids… Everything was wrong. 1950 was never her intention.

A Lovely Night by Meowmers

Tom’s reaction to the unexpected pregnancy of Hermione  by Meowmers


Tomione Drunk Dialing by Meowmers

fawert  asked:

Since Sam and Dean don't exist in au, Michael and Lucifer definitely skipped the true vessel bs then went to war with angels and demons in their true forms (angel blades sticking out of the ground proves it). That means au Cas is in his true form and Jimmy Novak is probably dead in a ditch somewhere. I hate the idea of Jack resurrecting Cas cause that'd be too easy and basically turns him into god. So when Misha comes back, how can they bring Cas back with him?

Nonny 1: i saw the ask in which the Anon is wondering if they would make Misha play AU Cas, but i don’t believe they would do that, in fact it really wouldn’t make a lick of sense, because Cas in that AU aint Cas, what made Cas the angel we know and love is that he was the one who pulled Dean out of hell, Dean who changed him and taught him free will, and in that AU dean was never born to begin with, so AU Cas would be just an angel.

Nonny 2: Hello! I was wondering about the possibilities and any possible theories on the bizzaro-Narnia AU-where-Dean-and-Sam were never born world. Do you think that it could be explored, or that we might see AU! Cas? Not as in an outright replacement, but maybe 1 or 2 episodes with him as a commander of a garrison of angels? You’re by far one of the most optimistic meta writers I’ve met and I really need some happy speculation to get me through hellatus. Sorry if you’ve covered this before. Thanks!

Hello, lovelies!

So, three wonderful asks that all have to do with this AU World that’s been so suddenly thrown into the mix. I’m glad I get to tackle this topic! Thanks fawert and Nonnies! (and forgive my reply taking sooo long!)

The basis for the following speculation is that I believe the narrative is closing as the writers are moving it towards endgame. Everything in S11-S12 is telling me this because S11 began the movement by forcing Dean Winchester to admit to himself that he is properly, truly, madly and deeply in love with Cas. Read more on my thoughts about this here.

In short:

  • Dean Winchester is our Protagonist
  • His character growth is what informs the narrative
  • He wouldn’t have been set on this particular path of character growth if he hadn’t met Cas
  • Dean’s growth is what is allowing him to let go of Sam, ending the brodependency, and granting him the insight to find his true self-worth, through self-acceptance
  • His self-acceptance has a whole lot to do with letting go of his toxic masculinity spiel
  • His letting go of this will be most clearly demonstrated by him fully embracing the fact that he’s in love with a man
  • Happiness with the man he loves is Dean’s reward for completing his character growth, reaching the internal goal of his character arc: which is self-acceptance

Now, I don’t know that this is where they’re taking the narrative, okay? Let me be perfectly clear about that. No one knows exactly what they’re planning (except the fuckers themselves) and they might go absolutely crazy in order to drag the narrative out for six more seasons.

However - and this is a big however, you guys - the writers have consistently, and with extreme due diligence, built a slow-burning love story between Dean and Cas that is beginning to peak - that’s what S12 gave us - meaning that going absolutely crazy to drag this love story out will jar with everything that’s come before.

Let’s not forget that our story is about love, and sacrifice, and love.

Love is mentioned twice by Metatron because our story has always been foremost about love.

Honestly though one of the reasons I love Transformers is because if you think through the implications of the usual plot, it is actually one of the most horrifyingly dystopian tales imaginable.

Civil war ravages a planet until everyone regardless of side is starving due to widespread famine. Both sides are forced to leave their home for unknown verdant lands populated by quite-possibly-hostiles you have to hide from. The deep unhealed divisions of the civil war persist as one side wants to befriend these strange creatures and ask them for the food you need, and the other side worries that this will make you beggars at the whim of strangers–so they want to raid, steal, and destroy instead.

Quite honestly I think one reason antis baffle me so much is these are the stories I saw as an 80s kid. Yes, it was presented in a lighthearted and silly way and some themes were toned down considerably for kids–as I think they probably should have been.

But there weren’t assumptions like “we can’t show kids war and famine.”

There wasn’t this idea that kids–and fragile adults!–will take anything they see and decide that it is good, the way that there is now.

skersey  asked:

UTS is like.. perfect. I'm obsessed. I binge-read over the weekend and I just love it. (Not demanding, at all!) I can't wait to see where you take this, this is a unique story and I think you keep them so in character. 🖤🖤 Also, any Tomione recs? They are my favorite and I'm dying for a bit more Tom Riddle in my life. 🐍🖤

^ that’s me, reading this. thank you - what a tremendous compliment!!!! 

somewhere, i think I have a list of tomione fic recs. i do not know where so here, off the top of my head is a list of stories you’ve probably already read. 

these are complete (i think) 

Romantic Idealism by @meowmerson​ 

She falls in love with him when she’s 12, but by the time she’s 17 she wants him dead. For Tom Riddle, its vice versa. Tomione. AU. M for a reason. 

Pygmalion by @colubrina

When Tom Riddle walked through a doorway one fall afternoon everything changed and he found himself in a world wholly unprepared for him. “Something about you makes my brain itch,” Hermione Granger said. “As if an earthquake had shifted everything sharply two feet to the left and then back again and it didn’t all fit back quite right.” Tomione. AU. COMPLETE.

War Paint by @provocative-envy

COMPLETE: It was small, slim, about the length of her hand; the leather cover was soft, the sewn-in binding was crisp, and the thick vellum pages were empty. ‘Tom Marvolo Riddle’ was printed in ancient, flaking gold leaf across the front. He had been a Slytherin, a prefect, and head boy in 1944. She had checked. HG/TR.

Tied for Last by Speechwriter 

Hermione is killed by Voldemort, and is now dead. Well, sort of. Turns out that death is a little more complex than she knew. Ignores epilogue and last 50ish pages of DH.

Change (and all its follow ups) by @flaignhan

Respect. Morals. Games. Pleasure. Three of those things, they share. On one of them they have a difference of opinion. TRHG

The Scientist by @uchihabat

AU, HG/TMR/FW. Attraction builds between Hermione and her best friend’s older brother, yet she can’t tear her mind from the mysterious puzzle that is her critical theory professor: Dr. Riddle. EPILOGUE UP.

All these writers have written other fantastic Tomiones and you should check those out too. 

I don’t read very much any more, to be frank, but I AM reading these WIPs: 

Nobility by @olivieblake

When a tyrannical king takes the throne by the blood-stained tip of his sword, two women find themselves tangled in his search for power. Who is the pawn and who is the queen, and what will they sacrifice for love? Hansy/Tomione, eventual Dramione. Royalty AU.

The Roots of this Tree by @frak-all

Tom Riddle is sixteen. He is also angry, a murderer, and scrambling to salvage his very-well-thought-out plan. Hermione is sixteen. She’s bleeding out on the Ministry floor, and events just get worse from there. [AU from Order of the Phoenix]

Here is a beautiful one shot 

And lastly - on my v soon to-read list with great excitement, as she is not only a wonderful writer herself, she’s beta reader for unsphere the stars and makes my writing transcend its own limits so I can assure you it’ll be fantastic:  

Orphea by @sallyjavery

“You could not believe I was more than your echo.” A spell to sing the dead to life, when the living are lost. Tomione, post-war, dystopian AU.

There are loads more I’ve forgotten or haven’t read but those are a few favourites at least. 

anonymous asked:

Hello! So I just finished a piece, and in it, not very much happens. It follows more of the charecters journey within them self than any particular plot. (Think 'Catcher in the Rye'). I was wondering if you had any tips on how to keep the readers attention without much storyline?

Thanks for your question, anon!  This is a good question :)

The kind of story you’re referring to is a character-driven plot, a popular style of fiction recognized in stories like Anne of Green Gables, The Help, and Anna Karenina.  These plots follow characters through their lives, with no single, definitive plot – rather, multiple small ones that serve the overall theme of developing the main character/s.  So in this sense, there is storyline – just a more subtle kind.

Naturally, these plots have different rules than plot-driven plots, which can make them a new, challenging experience for a writer who isn’t accustomed to it.  This is actually something I’ve been working on for the past year, transitioning from a plot-heavy story to one which simply follows two characters up to their wedding!  So I’ll just share with you what I’ve learned over the past year…


Character-Driven Writing

There are a few absolutely necessary ingredients to a successful character-driven story – to keep readers interested without a singular, gripping plotline.  You won’t be surprised by the first one…

1. Strong, Three-Dimensional Characters

It’s obvious that solid character-driven stories are built on solid characters, as is any story, really.  But with character plots, this is all your readers have keeping them there – the personalities, backstories, emotions, flaws, and goals of your characters.  A story based on a character’s life won’t be read if that character isn’t relatable and interesting.  So when planning your characters, make sure they are relatable, three-dimensional, flawed, motivated, and unique.

2. Engaging Conflicts

Between characters or inside them, conflict must be something that involves your readers as much as a dystopian war scene or a magic-wielding hero arc. There should be multiple kinds of conflict, although the strongest should be internal conflict.  It’s the strongest tool for character development, which is a necessity for this kind of fiction.  Create moral dilemmas, interpersonal disagreements, relationship trouble – be a little sh*t to your characters and make problems out of everything.  Put them in specific situations that draw out their flaws.  Bring their self-image crashing down in one fell swoop, and then give them a swift kick in the ass until they man up and develop.  This kind of intensity will keep your readers paying attention, just to see what happens next.

3. Character Chemistry

I can’t stress this one enough: if your story revolves around your characters, they must have chemistry with each other.  There’s nothing more painful than watching a bunch of three-dimensional, beautiful characters gather together and talk at each other like sticks.  This is doubly important for romantic couples, as they are often the heart of character-driven plots and must be believable (else they become annoying).  There are different ways to research for your chemistry experiments; I typically observe popular friendships/relationships on TV, or look back on my old text conversations to see how my old friendships developed.  Find what works for you and apply it to your story!

4. Wins and Losses

This is a crucial element to writing a character-driven story, mainly because it’s easier to overlook here than in plot-driven stories.  When there are only interpersonal and individual plots, rather than long, drawn-out plots, it’s not as natural to find the highs and lows, the peaks and valleys, of your story.  It’s tempting to make everything go right (or wrong) in one long sequence, and that’s no good.  Find a rhythm; when your character loses her job, introduce her to a possible love interest.  When the love interest makes your character’s life into a daydream, introduce a new job that creates distance between them.  This sort of give and take – where everything is never completely good or completely bad – is essential and will lend your story more realism (and entertainment!).


Those are my main tips, but if you have any specific concerns about your story, send me another ask and I’ll try to help :)  Thanks, and good luck!

The Boy in the Hammock - by Galfoy

√ Dramione (Draco x Hermione)
√ Setting: 1 year later
√ 18 chapters
√ My score: ❤❤❤❤ (very nice)
√ Rating: M
√ Language: ***** (close to no mistakes)

Hermione tugged at the string holding the hood onto the boy’s head, gingerly pulling the fabric back to reveal his face. Lying before her, barely recognizable beyond the swelling and the blood, but still very much himself, was Draco Malfoy.

My notes: Yep, I feel the love again!😍 This author really has a thing for emotions. It’s not easy to write about them and really touch the reader, without becoming sappy. I adored the ‘internal conversations’ they had in their heads! Very badass Hermione and damn did I love Narcissa! Only ‘bad’ thing I can say is that the story went really fast, I was sad it was over when I finished reading it.
