Hello darling I've been swimming around tumblr for a while and I'm very glad that I found your blog. Are requests still open? How would RFA + V react to an MC who's actually a pretty serious person? Like an MC who isn't cute or sweet but is loyal, intelligent, and outspoken and would enjoy talking about philosophy and history?

Hey there, sweetheart~ I apologize for taking so long with your request! We’re slowly but surely working on the mess that is our inbox right now;; Anyway, I knew I had to write something for this because I’m really digging this MC. Hopefully you’ll like what I’ve written for you!

Yoosung

  • you can’t even begin to imagine how insecure and inferior he feels in your presence.
  • after all he’s just slacking off and putting zero effort in his studies.
  • and you are this well-versed woman with plenty of interests who isn’t easily fooled.
  • yeah… he’s fucked.
  • thing is, though, yoosung is more capable of excellence than he believes, he could be top of his class if he wanted to.
  • he already was back in his high school days anyway?
  • and so he feels inspired by you to get out of his slump and become better through hard work.
  • he loves how engaging conversations with you can be and how much he learns about… well, pretty much everything?
  • philosophy tends to give him headaches but he could listen to you talk about asian history for hours on end.
  • besides, you are exactly what he needs: someone with a great sense of self who can keep him with his feet on the ground.

Zen

  • and here we have another bean who’s discouraged by insecurity.
  • unlike the rest of RFA, he didn’t even finish high school.
  • he’s more of a street smart kind of guy.
  • trying to follow conversation with you is the hardest thing he’s ever done, and trust him, he’s been through the hardest already.
  • is he really good enough for you?
  • there’s this darker side of him telling him to quit because you deserve someone better.
  • someone who isn’t stupid and ignorant.
  • the man his mother wanted him to be.
  • but regardless of the voice inside his head, he knows it would be an honor to be such a magnificent lady’s companion.
  • so he fights against it because you don’t deserve someone who does nothing but pity himself.
  • he admires your confidence and is often amused by how outspoken you are, the world needs more people like you.
  • and your loyalty is much needed due to his hectic job and public life.

Jaehee

  • YES.
  • you are just perfect.
  • she’s in love with you and your mind and how you carry yourself.
  • and you seem like such a reasonable, mature individual, it’s almost refreshing for her.
  • truly completely blown away.
  • it amazes her how easy it is for her to talk with you.
  • if she’s not following whatever it is you’re saying, she’ll make sure to look it up when she has the time.
  • your dates consist of going to museums and several cultural activities.
  • and don’t forget the musicals.
  • you were her biggest support system when she had to defy her boss in order to pursue her dreams.
  • I mean, you were pretty much her role model, and she still, of course, looks up to you dearly.
  • you guys have each other’s backs yet are fully aware you’re capable of defending yourselves just fine.
  • she’ll always be willing to kick some asses for you, though.

Jumin

  • the fact that you’re outspoken can cause a bit of conflict between the two of you, especially during the rockiest parts of his route.
  • other than that? oh god.
  • in this man’s eyes you are amazing in every aspect he can think of.
  • and so different from the women he’s used to deal with.
  • he values your sense of loyalty, it is of great help when his controlling urges start messing with his head.
  • because he knows you are not leaving any time soon.
  • as for what things you enjoy doing together, recommending books to each other is one them.
  • criticizing them together is another.
  • he promises to take you with him during some of his business trips, at least to the ones he thinks you’ll enjoy.
  • he also has a huge room in his penthouse destined for you and only you, where he’s gathered a huge collection of philosophy and history books.

Seven

  • you may not get along in terms of joking around and acting sweet.
  • in fact, your outspoken nature intimidates him a great deal.
  • or amuses him depending on the context.
  • you’re like a jaehee, or a jumin… a jaehee-jumin hybrid.
  • yes he does tease you about it here and there, that’s a given.
  • but he’s secretly fascinated by your knowledgeable self.
  • he is, in spite of everything that’s been said about him, someone intelligent and remarkable. 
  • he likes the way you talk about history.
  • prepare yourself to have him begging you to tell him bedtime stories.
  • “how about ninjas? or secret agents? know anything about them?”
  • yeah… just because you’re a more serious person doesn’t mean he’ll stop trolling you.
  • let’s also add the fact that he won’t be able to push you away because you are not gonna put up with it.

V

  • a thousand times yes.
  • we all know this man is way too faint-hearted.
  • he is in desperate need of someone strong-willed and you come into his life in just about the right time.
  • and he appreciates your loyalty.
  • let’s not forget he has many, many scars from his past relationship, both mentally and physically.
  • so he feels like he can trust and rely on you.
  • I assume that, because of his upbringing and job, he is quite knowledgeable and enjoys history as well.
  • that’s enough to have you both talking nonstop, sharing personal views and facts while laying on the grass and staring at the sky.
  • moments like this help him realize that maybe he will be able to connect to someone new after all.
  • he likes to take you to museums and art galleries.
  • and he’ll show you his collection of old paintings and photographs.

A Writer’s PSA

Firstly: I just saw an interesting post made by @caplanbuckybarnes (who I can’t tag, but that’s okay), that inspired both anger and relief in me at once. I was compelled to type out this PSA.

Secondly: I am tagging everyone who has asked to be tagged in The Irrelevance of Napoli SO YOU CAN SEE HOW GODDAMN AWESOME THEY ARE BEFORE I START THIS. 

@thecrownedrose @persephone-is-here-omg @find-me-here2 @captainamerotica @redgillan @angryschnauzer @ursulaismymiddlename @rebelslicious @kittykitty-mewmeww @erisjade @siren-kitten-his @buckyappreciationsociety @kozmicrock @aingealcethlenn @rachelle-on-the-run @thewinterswimmer @vaisabu @inside-lizzys-head @angryschnauzer @melconnor2007 

Thirdly: I am doing this more for the sake of my upcoming fic, Cherchez la Femme, which I have been working on for MONTHS–probably since Septemberish–than I am for Napoli. Also doing this for the sake of other authors who may feel this way, but don’t want to say anything for fear of making people mad. I personally am tired of dealing with my own anxiety about this subject, so I’m getting this off my chest. 

Okay.

 I am exceedingly frustrated by the majority of attitudes (or non attitudes) I see towards anything that is not a one-shot on here. ESPECIALLY if it’s smut.

I like smut. I love smut. I’ve read some really good smut on here. But… that’s not all I’ve read on here. When I first got on Tumblr, I found some really unique and interesting fics, and I got very invested in them. But lately, the majority of what I’ve been seeing on this site is the same damn thing, over and over and over again. Smut one shots, no plot, no character development, no nothing. Those fics I was invested in were discontinued (temporarily, I hope) in favor of smut one shots, which, like I said, I don’t mind, but ya know… I also do.

Authors are capable of writing more than smut one shots. 

Authors are capable of writing more than smut one shots. And many of them do write more than smut one shots. But I have seen two (2) of the multi-part fics I follow being seriously reblogged. That’s out of A LOT that I happen to read and like. One of my favorites got put on hiatus because there were no reads on the most recent chapter at the time.

Tumblr, seriously, what is going on? Like, I recognize that we all want to imagine ourselves having sex with some version of Sebastian Stan (ME TOO, I AM NOT EXCLUDING MYSELF FROM THAT GROUP) but some of these people have worked ages, ages on these fics. With well-developed characters and plot and settings and serious issues that are worked through. THESE PEOPLE I READ SHOULD WRITE ORIGINAL CONTENT AND GET PUBLISHED. In my world, they would. Because they are that good.

And yet, they get almost no recognition. And it frustrates me, and scares me, and makes me really, really sad. Some might say, “Tumblr is more (something else) than fanfic for me”–which is fine. Please engage in whatever joy may have brought you to Tumblr. But also remember that for others, it IS about fanfic, and they enjoy doing that just as much as you enjoy doing whatever you do. So hit the like button every once in a while. Read more fics of your favorite characters. Some might say, “I have –something that gives me a shorter attention span–, I can’t remember what happened before this chapter/can’t concentrate enough to get through a whole fic in the time I have”–in which case, you are fine, don’t worry about it, not a big deal. Some of you may say, “Works in progress are annoying, I hate waiting for new parts to come out”–and trust me, I’m right there with you. I’m waiting on a few new parts for fics myself (I’m also waiting for Diana Gabaldon’s next Outlander book, goddammit), but that doesn’t stop me from reading and commenting on the parts that are there! Tell the author that you have something to look forward to until the next part comes out! Also, TELL THE AUTHOR IF YOU ARE WAITING FOR THEM TO COMPLETE IT, or ask to be tagged in the final masterlist! We won’t mind if you do it that way! Some of you may just hate longer fics and there’s nothing anybody can do to change that. In which case, whatever floats your boat.

I’m not getting on anyone in the above paragraph to suddenly change your preferences and start reading fics with more than two parts. What I am saying, though, is if you consume, but don’t comment AND reblog (or at least tag and reblog), or if you don’t consume at all and blatantly ignore what authors are putting out there… come on, guys. We put our heart and souls into this stuff. Some of the stuff we write is taken from real life. Some people don’t have anything but their writing to help them get through what may be a really bad stage. Likes, comments, reblogs–writers need these. We don’t all have to be JK Rowling here, but we do hope to see that someone smiles or laughs, or cries, or feels in some way with our fics. 

One of my friends on here was very sad a couple of days ago because she was getting very few notes on even her one-shots, or reblogs with no comments. She has 700+ followers and a taglist that’s a mile long. It made me sad for her, and I can’t even hug her because she lives far away from me. Readers, you don’t have to comment or reblog every chapter of a fic that’s been written, it’s really okay if you don’t, but let the reader know that you like it and acknowledge the work that’s been done. 

I’m still relatively tiny on here, and I definitely need to follow more blogs, so I will now go looking. But, indulge me for a second: If, when I publish Cherchez, I deem it as not getting enough notes, I will make a goddamn video of myself deleting the thing off my computer and burning the damn notebooks. I started by writing this stuff for me. Napoli ended up being about someone I know who recently died. Cherchez was what I wrote when I was coming out of a breakdown. So yes, I write for myself. But as soon as I put it up here, it becomes yours. You consume it, you feel because of it. So really, guys, read all the smut you want. I know I’m going to. But read more than smut, too.

Sincerely,

Someone who is a teeny bit oversmutted

anonymous asked:

hey darling, since I am new to this platform, I cannot tell if plagiarism is frequent (i've seen a lot of cases lately though). Anyhow, what are your experiences with plagiarism and how do you approach the issue in the first place? Also how did you feel when it first happened? I'm really really curious haha.

Welcome to Tumblr, lovely! It has definitely upped in frequency over the past two months, which is very concerning and disappointing. I have been lucky not to be involved in any of those incidents, and the last one to occur was when I was transitioning between sugascript and deerguk around April last year, and I had not broadcasted the url of the new blog (deerguk) I was switching to. I am certain there was a time or two before then where I had been plagiarised, though that one greatly stands out for me because it was after I had deleted my works from sugascript, and this random blog started re-uploading them. There was another blog that did this too, and they even posted a real photo of me that I had uploaded to sugascript and deleted within the same day two months before that incident to “claim” they were really me, which made me sick to my stomach.

Another incident would be when I came up with this whole plot and concept for a Celestial AU with Yoongi. I got so excited about the entire thing that I foolishly shared very in-detail notes on my blog with readers who asked me about it, to the point that the full idea for the story was pretty much laid out for anyone to see, yet I had not literally constructed it into a story yet. Then, one day, I received a message asking me if I had written the idea and posted it to Wattpad first because this user had found a newly posted story called Lustre that was completely identical to everything I had talked about. My idea was about Yoongi being a celestial being (specifically, a star) who was assigned as the wish-granter of the OC, but he gradually found himself falling in love with her, which was forbidden. He was given an ultimatum, to be reassigned to a new human or be stripped of his celestial duties, which ultimately resulted in him being banished from the skies by the Celestial Gods to live a life as a mortal who still attained some of his celestial aspects (silver hair, his skin glows depending on his mood, etc). All of that was made known on my blog, and they copied exactly that into their own story before I could write it, which meant that I could not write out the idea that I spent days planning because that person could have technically called me out on plagiarism if they wanted to.

I remember feeling disgusted, upset and horrified that some people would go ahead and do that just to spite me. Nowadays, it is more severe anger when I see this occur over and over again, wondering how on earth these people think they will get away with slapping their name on somebody else’s hard work. The fact that some of them try to fight back on it is just as ridiculous, saying “it’s just fanfiction” when they clearly do not realise we can spend days upon weeks upon months writing these things to only have somebody else copy and paste it to try and get all the credit. It is beyond disappointing and exhausting.

As for how I go about it, I used to politely, but firmly message the plagiarisers to take the content down whilst also reporting them for plagiarism/copyright infringement. If they did not, I would make things more public. But nowadays, especially with the increased frequency, I have certainly tended to resort straight to public approaches as I seriously do not hold any sympathy towards those who think stealing another person’s work is okay, especially after all of us writings have broadcasted how not okay it is. If they are wanting the attention so bad for something they did not even exert a second into creating, then they are going to get it in the form of my fucking wrath, to put it simply haha.

anonymous asked:

I'm so sorry if this is silly question, but I wasn't really sure what to google - what is spoonie magic? Or what do people mean when they talk about having spoons? I've seen it quite a bit on tumblr - I'm very new to this and so confused, and I saw you had some posts referring to it. Help?

Basically the term “Spoonie” was born from the Spoon Theory written by Christine Miserandino, who has Lupus. (In short - a general term for people who are chronically ill, mentally or physically) I’m going to copy a few quotes from it in case you don’t want to read the whole thing.

“(My friend) asked what it felt like, not physically, but what it felt like to be me, to be sick. I quickly grabbed every spoon on the table; hell I grabbed spoons off of the other tables. I looked at her in the eyes and said “Here you go, you have Lupus”. She looked at me slightly confused, as anyone would when they are being handed a bouquet of spoons. I explained that the difference in being sick and being healthy is having to make choices or to consciously think about things when the rest of the world doesn’t have to. The healthy have the luxury of a life without choices, a gift most people take for granted. Most people start the day with unlimited amount of possibilities, and energy to do whatever they desire, especially young people. For the most part, they do not need to worry about the effects of their actions. So for my explanation, I used spoons to convey this point. I wanted something for her to actually hold, for me to then take away, since most people who get sick feel a “loss” of a life they once knew. I asked her to count her spoons. She asked why, and I explained that when you are healthy you expect to have a never-ending supply of “spoons”. But when you have to now plan your day, you need to know exactly how many “spoons” you are starting with. It doesn’t guarantee that you might not lose some along the way, but at least it helps to know where you are starting. (She then takes spoons away one by one according to the tasks her friend has to accomplish. You need to prioritize your spoons and choose how you want to use them until you run out and don’t have any energy left.) It has been a code word for what I can and cannot do.”

Those who use the Spoon Theory = Spoonies

Basically, Spoonies use this theory to help people understand how much energy they have during the day and as an explanation why or why not they can do certain things. Spoonie witchcraft can be adaptations of bigger spells to accommodate those that don’t have the energy to do long rituals, or smaller spells that require little energy output. Every Spoonie is different though, so not everything I post is going to be low-energy friendly, but I try to direct or give options to those that prefer low maintenance spells.

Another term used in the Witchcraft community is “lazy witchcraft” - which some people take offense to - but is more common for those that aren’t chronically ill, but just don’t have the time or energy because of jobs, family, etc. Personally, if that’s your case then I don’t really care if you use that term, but fair warning - some Spoonies do take offense when people lump the two terms together, so keep that in mind. Mainly because we can’t help not being able to do everything.

I think another great resource besides me is @recreationalwitchcraft, since most of their spells are for people that just want to do spells occasionally - but most are Spoonie friendly as well. 

So yeah. If you’re wondering why I personally refer to myself as a Spoonie, it’s because I’ve been physically ill for the last 2 years now. The diagnosis was originally Crohn’s Disease, but then I had my gall bladder surgically removed. Three months later I’m still not well, so the term is staying with me. I do function pretty well on most days, but I generally crash at least once a week. Other than that, because I’ve met and learned a lot about those in the Spoonie Community, I’d like to offer what I can to those that still want to be a part of the witchcraft community, and sort of be an advocate for people like me. 

So, Spoonies, if you want to talk or need some references to other Spoonie witches, let me know!

Hallo! Want to start off by saying that I really love your work and I think you're one of the best writers I've stumbled upon on tumblr. 😳 I especially love your solavellan ones so muchhhhhh ✨✨✨ I just want to ask...how did you imagine Solas and Ellana getting back together post trespasser?

Thank youu! This is such an uplifting message, oh wow. I’m so glad you’re enjoying my writing, nothing makes me happier to hear!

As to how I imagine them getting back together — it all depends on what I picture happens after Trespasser/what choice Solas ends up making (because this whole hope for redemption I’ve got hinges on him making that choice himself, not her making it for him). But in the event of a reunion and a possible reconciliation, it would be a slow process. It’s more than forgiveness and learning to trust him again, it’s learning to know each other again, who they are now, post rebellion, post world-on-the-brink-of-destruction (again), post Inquisitor and Fen’Harel. And he’d pull away at first, I think. I mean, repentance or not, Solas’ particular brand of grim fatalism doesn’t exactly allow for accepting happiness easily.

But she’d give chase, because at this point she’ll be Fed Up with pretty much everything, and in the case of a potential capitulation on Solas’ part, there’s no way she’d just let him walk away. That’s not to say she’d forgive him on the spot, but she’d make a point of trying, because that’s the kind of person she is, a counter-weight of conviction to his defeatism. She’s stubborn, and if there’s one thing she’s succeeded in doing it’s open his eyes to believing in the impossible. And so I imagine he’d eventually reciprocate, not by simply accepting her decision, but by giving her the opportunity to try and salvage what he’d considered lost beyond reclaiming (and there’s some damn fine irony there)

You know what, I think we’ll go with fic from here.

***

They meet halfway between two points, like a bridging of worlds, although there’s only the one now, and they’ve both long since relinquished their claims to deciding its fate.

It’s nothing so redundant as a crossroad, but for all intents and purposes, it might as well be one. They come together at the heart of a small clearing, a stone’s toss from the remnants of an old campfire. There’s no path to follow, but he knows the way as well as she does; remembers the night they’d spent, on their backs in the grass beneath the stars, and he’d kissed every inch of her skin and forgotten that he was awake.

She blends with the forest now, clad in pale greens and greys, and her soft cloak brushes against her legs as she steps out from between the trees.

“You came,” Ellana says, and he notices she doesn’t sound surprised. And she looks healthier than when he saw her last, cheeks rosy with a light flush of exertion. She’s not wearing armour, and there’s a simple yew staff strapped to her back. She looks ready for a journey.

Despite himself, hope makes his heart leap.

Under The Oak Tree

The sky was a brilliant blue colour up above, littered with slight smudges of white and dark grey like the slip of an artists wrist across a masterpiece or a kitchen counter topped with spilt milk. The slightest hint of yellow shone shyly behind one of the smudges, only parts of itself filtering through. A bit like Dan’s life really. A metaphorical cloud standing in front of him, only letting a few wisps of who he actually was escape into the atmosphere. The rest remained a mystery, trapped behind the cloud for only Dan to know about. Dan sighed as he opened his book. Maybe if he spent less time staring up at the sky and pondering metaphors, he would actually get some work done. Maybe.
