except im not

Opinions, please?

I just wrote a Sorting Hat song for a new fic I’m starting, and… Oh man! It wasn’t easy, hahaha. Is this horrible?

-

There was a tense moment of silence. Then the seam along the brim of the hat opened like a mouth…and it began to sing.

I know I’m not that handsome,

But don’t be fooled by my appearance,

If you want to know where you belong,

I’m the cap to give you clearance.

There’s not a single thought that I can’t read,

Nor a trait that I can’t see,

So try me on, don’t be afraid,

And I’ll sort you easily.

Perhaps you’ll be in Gryffindor,

Where the bold and brave all dwell,

Those with daring and chivalry

In Gryffindor do well.

Or perhaps you’re meant for Hufflepuff,

Where dwell the loyal and the true.

For those who are hard-working,

Hufflepuff shall be for you.

Though Ravenclaw may be your home,

If you’ve a sharp and ready mind,

Those Ravenclaws are perceptive folk,

There’s not an answer they can’t find.

Or maybe Slytherin will be where

You find that you fit in,

Those of clever, cunning, and quickest wit,

Will do best in Slytherin.

So don’t be afraid to put me on!

There’s worse things to fear than that!

I am the best (though I’ve no competition),

The one, the only—Sorting Hat!

things i have observed about different fandoms

Harry Potter

  • your hogwarts house is more important than your name
  • so vast?? so old??? scary, kind of.
  • really old classic fics
  • used to have ship wars like all hell, and kind of still does??? but not really??? it’s better now
  • every other fandom has a harry potter au.
  • split into different sects that are practically whole different fandoms. there’s the marauders fandom, the golden trio/canon era fandom, the fantastic beasts fandom, the next gen fandom – they’re all like little umbrella fandoms under one great big potter net.
  • no one’s favorite character is harry potter.
  • they don’t talk about the cursed child.
  • will never die.

Hetalia

  • holy shIT this fandom is a minefield
  • a lot of teenagers??? like??? a lot???
  • an alarming amount of smut fic
  • i dont know a lot of this fandom is really immature and there are so many ship wars?? like??? 
  • ignoring actual historical material in favor of coddling your favorite character
  • the dub is one of the most quotable things i’ve ever seen
  • hetalia is very much a starter anime. a lot of people get into this anime as like a gateway drug and grow out of the fandom later on.
  • lots of bad fic, with rare absolute GEMS thrown in.
  • some fics are beautifully researched, intricate, historically accurate, and amazing. so much potential for fic in this fandom.
  • george devalier.

Les Miserables

  • frENCH
  • the main character is jean valjean
  • much of the fandom does not realize this.
  • les amis are love, les amis are life. jean valjean?? who??? javert??? who’s that?? fantine????? WHO THE FC U K
  • emerges from the deep once every few years when a movie or something else comes out.
  • The Movie Musical shot the fandom to new heights and launched a new era, but now has mostly calmed down???
  • also will never die. been around since 1862 and still going strong.
  • used to be eponine stans (eppyboppers) who hated cosette??? and usually shipped eponine with marius or enjolras. thank god that’s over.
  • literally everyone ships E/R.
  • even the actors ship E/R.

Homestuck

  • no
  • nOOOO
  • NOOOOO
  • dying??? (hopefully)

Haikyuu!!

  • sO MUCH GREAT FIC
  • oikawa tooru is universally adored
  • pretty much everyone ships the same things?? like obviously not, and there are so many great character dynamics and rarepairs, but ships like bokuaka, iwaoi, kagehina, etc. are so ingrained in the actual canon that everyone ships them a LITTLE bit, even if you ship the character different ways too.
  • you can ship anyone with anyone. literally. go fuckin wild.
  • everyone has normal hair except for the one owl guy.
  • incredible aus.
  • YOU SHOULD HAVE COME TO SHIRATORIZAWA

Yuri!! on Ice

  • EVERYONE SHIPS VICTUURI. IT IS AN ACTUAL CANON GAY SHIP AND IT IS GOLDEN.
  • at this point 90% of the fandom is just screaming over any new content they get b/c it’s all so great.
  • everyone under 20 gets shipped with yurio, and every one of these ships is somehow controversial.
  • fandom swings back and forth between wanting JJ to die in a fire or being ready to protect him to the ends of the earth.
  • sala or sara??? nobody can decide??? (spoiler alert: it’s sara, that’s a real italian name, sala is the word for living room.)
  • even the people who despise the dub can’t hate it THAT much
  • at one point the fandom hated chris, but now he’s just kind of the weird overly sexual uncle at the family barbecue
  • giaCOMEtti
  • kubo-sensei is a goddess

i just pledged 10 bucks (which means 34 of my currency) to The Arcana kickstarter. please please  please  pledge to those guys because idk man i have the feeling this could be really awesome. there’s only little more than 5 days to go and they’re only 55% backed. please. for 10 dollars you get the entire pdf of the artbook, and if like only half my followers pledged we’d have nearly 4k donated

perks of backing The Arcana

  • you get to choose your (the main character’s) pronouns
  • the creators say you can have all flavors of romance gender-wise
  • you’ll be supporting lgbt adults to make an inclusive game
  • as in: lgbt people doing lgbt material
  • it’s got choices
  • it’s got beautiful artwork with beautiful colors and beautiful lines
  • you’ll only get charged if they reach their goal, as is kickstater’s regular thing
  • it’ll be in your phone so whenever the artwork is too beautiful you can just screenshot it to gawk at it later (no shame. i do it way too often)

downsides of backing The Arcana

  • literally i don’t know

here’s some official artwork and screencaps of the game to prove my point about the gorgeousness

so please just?? back it??

here’s the link again if you dont wanna scroll back!

Currently working on a Swan Prince!Victuuri AU, and it’s not going so well so have a feathery Victor instead :’3c He’s so pretty, but so hard to draw….

this anime is killing me in more ways than one

shadowhunters meme: [¼]shadowhunters → alexander lightwood

You know, it’s like, you have this plan for your life, and you know what you need to do and what your responsibilities are. And you think, you know, if you follow the rules, everything’s gonna be fine. Then somebody comes along and… pushes you off that path.
