What it’s Like to be...

Hello tumblr! I have a very special announcement that I would like EVERYONE to read: I’m doing a “What it’s Like to be [gender/sexuality]” series and I want everyone to participate! My main goal is to inform everyone about all of the different genders/sexualities, and help those who are questioning. Each gender/sexuality will have its own post which will consist of submissions by you! Each post will have the flag, definition, myths/misconceptions, tips/tricks, and your experiences and thoughts!

Here’s how it works:

  • If you are a member of the LGBT+ community, send me a message or ask telling me all about what it’s like being your gender/sexuality. Everyone can submit! You don’t need to be following me, and you can submit for multiple genders/sexualities. You can submit on or off anon, one point or 500 points. You can submit even if you think it’s already been done, you think it’s an obvious point, or if you’re closeted.
  • Send me a message/ask listing your experiences, jokes, tips, myths, definitions, symbols, and more related to your gender/sexuality. There is no limit for submissions!
  • Send everything in by Friday, July 28, 2017. The reason it’s that far in the future is because I want time for a lot of people to submit. At the moment I don’t have a lot of followers, so I allowed myself some time for word to spread and submissions to start coming in. I will start posting on Saturday, July 29, and will continue until I have posted all the submissions.
  • Unless otherwise requested, submissions that are off anon will be tagged in their contributions as a thank you. You can ask to be tagged as well if you don’t submit, but I really hope you do because this can help a lot of people out there to get information.
  • If you remember something or want to add something after a post has already been posted feel free to comment/reblog anything we’ve missed! Please do not change anything if you do, but you can add to it.
  • Remember that each experience is different for everyone. That’s why I want so many people involved. When reading these posts, if you disagree with a point please do not hate on me or the person who submitted it.
  • Each post will be tagged as [ #what it’s like to be ] along with the gender/sexuality of the post and any other relevant tags.
  • Here is an example of what a post might look like:

“You know what’s so great about the moment of JJ encouraging Press, telling her she’s good and she’s ok. Is that it’s exactly what Becky did for JJ when she committed that foul during the Germany game resulting in a PK. JJ understands that moment when all you want to do is run and hide. But, she’s right there for Press just like Becky was there for her.” - Anon

hey! i was just thinking, that i've been listening to the songs harry requested on radio 1 and they've been stuck in my head for so long omg. and like, i'm not connecting the songs he requested to larry, but with each song a little scenario ab them plays in my head! was wondering if you could write little snippets based on a couple of the songs? sweetest devotion by adele and issues by julia michaels!

I got really carried away with this; I combined both of these songs and very subtly put a few of the lyrics into a mess of 3k. I hope this works for you xx



Louis watches the build up and break over a period of months. Years, even. Harry’s tired. They both are, but Harry’s exceptionally so. He’s been working nonstop on his album, his photography, himself, and now that he’s back in the limelight all day, everyday, it’s taking a serious toll. Louis doesn’t say anything or imply that Harry needs to slow down, but he wants to, just isn’t quite sure how. Harry’s been a little moodier, a little more on edge, and the whole time Louis is trying to figure out a way to approach the subject lightly, it seems that Harry has already given it just as much thought as Louis has, if not more.

“I think I wanna take some time off,” he says one night just before bed. He’s in the middle of changing his pants, tripping into them like he always does. “Like, hide, maybe?” The way he says it makes it sound like he’s asking for permission from Louis, just to make sure they’re currently at the same level.

Louis raises a brow from his position in bed and looks up, relieved, worried. “Yeah? Like go on an extended holiday?”

“Mmm, something like that.”

“Care to elaborate?”

Harry crawls into bed beside him, shirtless and shoulders pink from his sunburn. The weather was mild and about 10 degrees today - typical for January - but they spent the majority of the day outside, anyway, Harry lounging in the backyard, ignoring Louis’ request to venture out. Paps, he said simply, going back to shielding his eyes from the LA sun.

“I rented out a place in Maine,” he says, reaching for his reading glasses on the bedside table. He doesn’t really need them, but no matter how much Louis teases him about it, he continues to wear them, squinting without them. Dramatic. “I’m not even really sure where it is, but I know it’s right on a lake, it’s in the woods, it’s secluded, it’s…” He sighs. “Not here.”

Louis’ stomach tightens. “You trying to get away from me, Styles?”

“No, God no.” Harry shakes his head, curls finally grown back in and bouncing. “I’m trying to take a break from everything, but that doesn’t include you. You can come with me, if you want. But don’t feel obligated to. I know how much you love it here. And that you like writing here best.”

I love it here because you’re here. “I’m comin’ with,” he replies eventually.

“You want to?”

“Yes. You’re a bit strange for wanting to fuck off to the middle of nowhere but. I’m used to your weirdness by this point. No judgement here. I’ll come with.”

Harry smirks, pushing his glasses up the bridge of his nose like Louis always does. Copy cat. “Good.”

“So, when’re we leaving?”

“Thursday morning.”

“Christ, you’re an impulsive lad, aren’t you?”

“I suppose.”

“Makes life interesting.”

Harry nods, reaching for the remote for the telly, then setting it back down. “I’m very happy. I really am. I just need a change, yeah?”

“It’s okay to, like, want to step back,” Louis says softly. “You don’t have to be grateful and positive every second of the day. Wanting to escape is probably the most normal thing I can think of.”

He’s quiet for a moment, probably thinking. He purses his lips when he looks at Louis. “Thank you.”

“Absolutely.”

“And you’re gonna escape with me? Until you’re tired of me?”

Louis smiles, turning off his bedside light. “Absolutely.”

Submission

(post this on anon please) Basically, the whole thing revolved around this guy, Nick Paz, Camila liked and commented on his IG (October 2016) and some stans said that she took his number in may 2016 and he commented on one of her picture @ his friends saying “that’s the girl who gave me her number and want to see me” in july 2016. Camila follows him on Spotify and he follows her. He also liked a picture of dafneoz who is clearly a non-famous friend of Camila. People also found that some of his friends are also friends with Lauren !! Nick Paz is the son of a famous photograph so their friends in common are models. One of them seems to be friend with Lauren, Alexa and Diplo (Lauren liked some of her pics on IG and commented “fire” on one). So Camila might have given him her number but she could have known about him already by other peoples. Also they found a girl that Nick follow on Spotify and she follows back (alianasofia). This girl follows Chris Jauregui and vice versa. And the thing about her being in his pool is such a reach lol. The only “proof” is that there’s seemingly blocks of cement behind the pool that you can also see in Nick’s house (it could also be Lauren’s just saying lol).  Also people send him messages on IG because he was confused why so many people tried to follow him on IG (after the videos), the person said “they think Camila is your girlfriend” and he said “hahahahaha that’s funny”. In my opinion they’re just friends, but I don’t know anything about their privates life so they could be anything. Anyway camren is endgame.

anonymous asked:

You can spell it as Viktor if you personally like it but the "it's more Russian this way" thing needs to stop. The Cyrillic "к" is much softer than the English "k" in pronounciation and the "c" is a much better fit. There are Germanic, Finno-Ugric and West Slavic languages that use the "k" spelling, but Russian is neither. It's East Slavic. (Source: I'm Russian).

^^^THIS. You made my day when I saw this ask/comment in my inbox. Thank you for the commentary on the language families of that region.

Anon here is citing linguistics as a response to the “Victor vs. Viktor” spelling debate I briefly summarized in my History of YOI Fandom post. Specifically, about one of the main arguments that arose from fans that “Viktor” would be a “more Russian way” to transliterate the name.

As I’m neither Russian nor someone who has a degree in Linguistics (having a roommate doesn’t count), I don’t feel like I’m qualified to advise on how the Russian Romanization chart should look like when it’s next changed (Russian-to-English “official transliteration” has changed multiple times just in the past 20 years and has alternate systems used by other official bodies). I have, however, taken a couple of linguistics courses and continue to study Japanese – so I know that transliteration systems and charts can be faulty, and finding an ideal way to represent your language in another language’s script takes the work of many people who don’t mind making things a bit messy to get the sound across.

Linguistic families can be close on the family tree, yet have very different pronunciation for shared consonants or vowels. Representing these differences is a choice for whoever is constructing the romanization/transliteration. When you have transliteration charts attempting to represent sounds that don’t quite exist in the language they are being imported into, you’ll have debates between choosing consonants that are more aesthetically fitting in a chart, and consonants that show pronunciation and origin. Worse yet are the choices decided on when trying to make these charts straightforward for the layman – sometimes outright ignoring pronunciation in favor of making the chart look like it has order (I’m looking at you Nihon-shiki and Kunrei-shiki). 

Heck, this is why we have the IPA (International Phonetic Alphabet) to accurately note how languages sound, rather than relying on the traditional written system. Spelling and pronunciation aren’t even consistent in English, so why would transliterating an entirely different language with its own sounds be any simpler in deciding correct spelling? The only correct way is where readers can understand how the sound is pronounced and can see the origin of the word.

English itself is a map of all the languages that went into it - so it should follow that transliterated words show their roots as well. Linguistically speaking, if you use the character “k” for both soft-sounding and hard-sounding velar stops from other languages, then you won’t be able to tell what the foreign word should actually sound like. If I may assume from Anon’s comment, the day that a softer “к” is denoted with the use of the English (Latin character) “c” would be wonderful for distinguishing between languages from that region.

But I guess the point is:

  • Don’t go correcting someone by saying that “it’s more English/Russian/Japanese(etc.) to spell a name like this” unless you understand how the languages on both sides of the transliteration work and know their origins.
  • Even if there is a linguistically “more English/Russian” way to spell a name, and the person honestly is spelling it oddly*, names are personal and a person can choose to spell a name however they want (Casie/Casy/Casey, Mary/Marie, John/Jon, Ashley/Ashleigh). 

*I will admit that if Yūri Katsuki spelled his name “Juli Katukee” in English as some amalgamation of Kunrei-shiki “tu” mixed with whatever-the-heck Russian j/y and Japanese r/l switching, and making the “ki” stand out with a Chinese character li–>lee spelling, I would shudder every time I had to type his name… but I would still type it as it is.

Hey Sera! I love your blog so much- it always makes me smile. I was just wondering if you had any opinions on Gen's fourth of July Instagram post...

Anon 2: Yep. Great job on Jensen’s beard (facial) inconsistency. Same could be done with Jared’s with what Gen posted. I know you can crop the kids. There’s almost non existent beard in July 4th pics and July 5th (ER) it’s fully grown. Thanks !


Hello, dear anons!

Thank you for your kind words! I noticed the difference between the beards when I saw G’s ER pictures, but I didn’t want to rush to conclusions before I was sure it wasn’t due to the difference of the lighting. Well.. it doesn’t seem to be the case, as we can see here.

I lightened up the picture from yesterday and for some reason expected it to have an effect on Jared’s beard. Next to nothing happened - it is considerably longer than it was “the day before.” It certainly makes me think the July 4th picture is a latergram that was posted as proof of the Padaleckis celebrating USA’s indepence day together.

G posted this picture on instagram in her story and it sparked a conversation on whether the man in picture is Jared or G’s brother Johnny. The latter was in Seattle, attending the same wedding as Jared and G, so the suspicion was not based on blind speculation. I don’t know who to put my money on, but I do find it awfully funny that G felt compelled to post a photograph of Jared in two ponytails shortly afterwards.

It’s not the same t-shirt or even a similar hairdo, but you know, whatever… ;)

This is how Jared looked like with a fan on the 1st of July. Beards can obviously be trimmed, but they don’t grow that much overnight as in the first picture. I guess if we get a sighting of Jared soon, we can say something conclusive about the true sequence of these pictures.

Thank you for the messages, both of you! I appreciate the support and the encouragement to keep going. :) I hope you’re both blessed with a wonderful weekend! Let’s keep our eyes on the beards, shall we? *cackles*

Something is weird with Louis' style. We are in the middle of july. It's almost august. It's hot AF. And he can't stop wearing jumpers, hoodies, long socks, tracksuits...😑 it's like he wants to hide his body. We don't even see his tattoos anymore. The only thing he doesn't cover it's his face/neck. What is happening? ☹️

It’s strange and it goes beyond it being some kind of fashion thing. I don’t get people who think there’s nothing off with this and aren’t “bothered” by it….

The Plot So Far...

This will be a summary of important events that happened in their universe. I’ll keep it condensed as possible, and it’ll be updated regularly. The timestamps mark important dates, but subsequent information afterward do not necessarily happen on the same day.

September 23, 2014 - Eric surprises his friends by launching an ask blog.

The boys take a little while to get warmed up to it, but enjoy the encouragement from the fanmail. Eric gets a couple of unsettling messages from fans, causing him to tear up letters. Despite his warnings, Eric’s censoring was short-lived thanks to some convincing from Kyle. This allows the anons to reveal Eric’s secret item, along with other uncomfortable questions asked.

December 26, 2014 - Eric introduces Butters to the blog.

Almost immediately Butters outs Eric about being gay. Stan says that this was pretty obvious already. 

An anonymous frequents the blog, seeming to have it out specifically for Eric.

March 15, 2015 - Kyle’s uncomfortable anons escalate to creepy anons.

Also after winning his bet with Eric, Kyle shoves broccoli down Eric’s throat. On this post Bebe also starts flirting with Kyle.

The stripper turns out to be Butters.

March 27, 2015 - Butters and Kenny start dating.

July 14, 2015 - Kyle and Bebe start dating.

July 22, 2015 - Eric decides to confess to Kyle that he has a crush on him. Kyle believes he’s lying and is offended.

This causes a shit storm directed at both of the boys.

To distract from this Eric has Craig appear as a guest.

August 3rd, 2015 - Stendy/Bunny/Kybe triple date. Meanwhile Eric disappears from the blog for a day, to go hang out with Craig’s gang at a lake.

Stan drunkenly calls Bebe’s boobs boner inducing. Wendy gets pissed.

A day after the party, Wendy officially breaks up with Stan through text.

Stan is depressed and sleeps in for a few days.

Eric puts Tweek on as a guest. Tweek has an uncanny resemblance to Kenny.

Eric gets scolded for his poor treatment of Kyle in childhood and a few anons question if he even cares about Kyle now. Kyle insists that people lay off.

Kyle convinces Stan to get out of bed and move on with his life.

Stan gets a new tattoo.

August 26th, 2015 - Bebe makes an advance on Kyle, which eventually Kyle backs out of.

September 11th, 2015 - Butters celebrates his birthday, and has an afterparty with Kenny and Cartman. 

After some bonding, Butters and Kenny feel particularly protective of Cartman. This leads to Butters speaking up and saying something that he probably shouldn’t have.

Kyle consoles Eric about his problems. He reveals that Cartman’s crush on him is becoming more convincing. 

October 7th, 2015 - After some time, the boys come back from being in school and are ready to answer questions again. Butters is no longer allowed on the blog.

November 14th, 2015 - Clyde makes a guest appearance on the blog. The anons are turned off to protect him from insults. But after flirting with Kyle the anons come back on again. Clyde tears up and leaves the house, angry.

Kyle texts Cartman angry about him turning the anons back on, and Stan expresses anger towards it as well. 

The next day Cartman gets into an argument with Craig because of what happened to his locker.

After some digging they find out through the surveillance tapes that it couldn’t possibly be Craig that vandalized Cartman’s locker. But no further information is known. 

After repeated aggression towards each other Cartman and Stan decide to arm wrestle.

November 28th, 2015 - The boys go to see Cartman’s play. Tweek and Cartman have very good chemistry onstage, leading Kyle to be jealous once the anons speculate about Tweek and Cartman being a good couple. 

Cartman makes it up to Kyle.

Also despite attempts they fail to get Butters to hide with them.

After continued attempts of sympathy from their peers, Kyle gets Jimmy to raise awareness.

Ask The Main Four A Question

anonymous asked:

do you have a link to the video where jp says that ian took her out to dinner to ask to work more with kat? trying to win a debate lol

LOL sure! It was from a panel at SDCC 2014. (The quoted part starts at around 1:10.):

I just wanted you to know that I had a date, not in that way, but a nice bonding date with Ian right before Christmas. And he and I went and had a beautiful dinner and a bottle or two of wine and we were talking about you and your growth as an actress from the minute, from the first audition, and she’s been studying with, um studying and training and Ian said, “You know, if there’s one person I really really want to dig into some deep deep stuff with, and try to really explore as an actor some great stuff, it’s Kat.” And I was like, “Alright.”

Balloons : SHW

Words: 1.8K

Genera: Fluff

Anon: Hi! If its not too much, can I request a scenario where you meet and fall in love with shownu at the beach? 😍😍 he’s really sweet and shy and some fluff can added too if you want ^^ thank you!


Music blasted through your friend’s car while you two sang along to it and dancing randomly to the beats.

The July sun shone brightly, heating up the atmosphere and the beaches calling everyone out to them. You and your friend decided to spend your Saturday at the beach, sun bathing and relaxing before going back to work on Monday.

“Okay make sure you get everything out of the trunk while I pay for the parking” your friend instructed and you nodded, getting out of the car and walking to the trunk.

You got everything you two needed and waited for your friend to come back. As you waited, a funny looking car pulled up and its pastel yellow color grabbed your attention.

But what really grabbed your attention was its owner. A tall muscular guy got out of it and walked to his trunk, opening it and getting out a huge bouquet of balloons. You smiled at all their summery, refreshing colors before you shifted your sight back to the guy who was oblivious to your stare. You smiled down at your flip flops and shook your head.

“Y/n! Let’s go!” Your friend called and you jogged to her before both of you walked down the lane to the beach.

The two of you walked around the crowded area, looking for an empty spot to lay on. After finding one, you laid your towels and bags before laying down yourselves.

“This is so refreshing” your friend commented, but you found yourself smiling back at the memory of that guy and his balloons.

“Y/n, what are you smiling at?!” Your friend laughed. You sat up and were about to talk when a lot of kids started cheering and making a lot of noise.

You both turned your heads to where the noise came from and there he was. Standing in between a crowd of little kids, giving out his balloons.

“That’s so nice of him” your friend cooed and you couldn’t help the feeling you got in your heart.

“I know” you smiled, replying to your friend.

As you kept staring, his vision crossed yours and he smiled, nodding politely and you smiled before looking away. Your heart started beating like crazy and you tried calming down and reminded yourself he’s just a someone at the beach. Nothing more than that.

Your friend laid back down on her towel so you did as well. After a while the kids’ noises faded and the only sound that dominated was the sound of waves crashing into one another. It felt peaceful and lovely.

“Y/f/n” you sat up, looking down at your friend.

“Hm”

“You want something to drink? Popsicle?” You asked her and she frowned as she thought.

“A popsicle will do. Where are you getting that from?” She asked and you looked at the little cart in the distance.

“There’s this little cart I saw people getting refreshments from. I’ll go there” you told her as you stood up.

You walked along the beach as the waves washed your sand covered bare feet. You looked to your right and saw people taking boats along the coast then returning to the dock, which was not too far from where you were standing. You felt the need to go on one and that it would be fun and all, so you called your friend to ask her to join you.

“Yeah?” She answered.

“There are these little cute boats that go around the coast then go back to the dock. You want to go one one with me? They seem really fun with all the waves!” You told her excitedly.

“I would love to, but I’m pretty sure it’ll make me sea sick and I will ruin everything. You can go along if you really want to. I’ll wait for you at our spot” she replied and your face fell.

“Never mind. It’s not as fun if I go alone. I’ll get the refreshments and be back” you shrugged.

“Okay” she said and you hung up.

You made it to the cart and waited in the short line before getting to have your order.

“I’d like two raseberry flavored popsicles, please” you asked the old man behind the cart and he pulled them out of the ice filled bucket the handed them to you.

“Also add one lemonade flavored one and pass me the bill” a guy ordered from behind you. You raised your eyebrows and turned around. Your eyes sparkled at the balloons guy from earlier, who was standing behind you.

“Thank you” the old man thanked him after he passed the popsicle to him and taking the money.

“You didn’t have to do that” you told him, looking down at your feet.

“It’s okay” he rubbed the back of his neck.

“Thank you so much for the popsicles!” You thanked him, finally looking at him. His cheeks were red and you didn’t know if it was because of the heat or because he was shy.

“Don’t worry about that” he smiled nervously at you and you giggled.

“Thanks again, I’ll go now” you told him then turned to walk back to your friend.

“Um..uh…b-beautiful!” He called. You weren’t sure if he was talking to you so you kept walking.

“Popsicle girl!” You turned when he called you by that. Your heart started beating like crazy at the thought of him calling you ‘beautiful’.

He walked closer to you and looked down at you. You tried to stay cool even though your insides were flipping.

“Would you like to..you know those boats that go around here…you want to go on that?” He asked you, glancing up at his only balloon that was left.

“That would be nice” you smiled up at him and he smiled back at you.

“I’ll go give this to my friend. I’ll be back in a few” you told him and he nodded, smiling innocently.

You tried to walk properly to your friend and as soon as you got there you collapsed on your towel.

“Y/f/n! Emergency!” You squealed and your friend shot up.

“What is it! You saw a shirtless guy with breathtaking abs?! Where?!” She looked around and you slapped her arm.

“No! The balloons guy! He asked me to go on a boat with him! He even paid for our popsicles!” You freaked out and her jaw dropped.

“Look, if he paid for your food. He’s definitely a keeper!” She told you.

“Take this. I’m leaving. Wish me luck!” You handed her her popsicle and stood up quickly, wearing your flip flops and running back to the balloons guy.

“Did I make you wait too long?!” You asked him and he just smiled and shook his hand.

“Let’s go?” He asked and you nodded.

You both walked next to each other to the dock, where the boats usually departed. When you got there, the line wasn’t so short and you had to wait for a while. You frowned up at the sun and looked down at your feet to avoid its blinding rays. Then, you saw a pair of big feet step right in front of yours. You looked up and saw the guy standing in front of you, casting a shadow over you to protect you from the sun light.

“Thank you” I smiled shyly at him and he just smiled straight ahead. You kept eating your popsicles quietly.

The line moved and it was finally your turn. You put on your life vests and got in the boat. You heard the instructions from the guy who was in charge before going off.

“It can be dangerous in the ocean, the waves are strong. So stay still” he told you quietly and you nodded.

You enjoyed the view of the open ocean as the air went through your hair, messing it up. But you didn’t care because you felt great.

“What’s your name?” He couldn’t keep it in any longer.

“Y/n. What’s yours?” You asked.

“Hyunwoo. Son Hyunwoo. But you can call me Shownu if you like” he chuckled and you smiled at him.

“Do you need help?” You asked him.

“Just enjoy the view” he smiled at you and you shrugged. You looked at everything around you. The blue of the ocean, the colors of the beach, the birds that flew around. But none of that was as beautiful as he was.

“Y/n” he called, his eyes fixed on you. You looked at him and hummed back in response.

“I saw you earlier and I think you’re so…beautiful” he told you, wrapping the balloon’s string around his finger as he talked. You didn’t know how to reply so you just smiled shyly.

“Would you like to go out sometime? Tomorrow? Or maybe next week? Anytime that suites you” he talked fast and nervously. You giggled.

“Tomorrow’s fine with me” you told him and he grinned, his eyes becoming small and he just looked so cute to you.

“May I ask about the balloons?” You asked, letting your curiosity take over you.

“Ohthat..I just like cheering people up. So every Saturday I buy a bouquet of balloons and give them out for free” he explained and you smiled in complete admiration.

After a few rounds, your time was over and you both went back to the dock. You took off your life vests and gave them to the staff before thanking them and walking off the dock.

“It was really nice, meeting you I mean” he told you and you laughed at his shyness.

“I think the same way. Thank you for the popsicles and the ride. It was so nice” you told him and he untied the last balloon from his wrist before stretching his arm out for you.

“I’ll give you a balloon for now. But I’ll give you roses next time” he told you and you kept smiling so big.  

After exchanging numbers, both of you went your separate ways. You couldn’t see anything clearly and you were completely in love with Hyunwoo. Whenever you remember his shy smile, your heart skips a beat. The balloon he gave you was worth everything you’ve got in that moment.

“Oh my god! How was it?!” Your friend squealed and you sat down next to her.

“He asked me out! He’s such a sweet guy!” You told her and she squealed more.

“Wait. He gave you a balloon? What did you give him, though” she laughed.

“My heart”

anonymous asked:

I sent this ask to another blog but I didn't get an answer. So let's see if I get an answer here. What was the point of hiding Karlie during the July 4th celebration in 2014? They were seen together almost everyday even when they were alone, so why hide her in a celebration that was full of friends? Kissgate hadn't even happened yet.

You are right anon, there was no purpose (for us). But remember that Taylor hadn’t released her first pop single and 1989 yet, joshlie was used for small things back then (like the post with pink sky and the flag on the 4th of July from crackerboy), as if they wanted to prevent the unexpected but failing miserably (think about the Burma pic and Kaylor spotted by that tumblr dude). Media didn’t care much about them but they still went with it to “justify”. Plus I think that they also didn’t post a picture together because some antis were accusing Karlie of using Taylor and her name, since they were hanging out so much. I hope this makes sense somehow.

Congratulations with the 500 followers! And what about some America boyfriend headcanons?

thank you, anon!! (America was requested a lot, so if you sent in a request, here we go)

  • He takes you swing dancing frequently. He’s amazing at it.
  • He can and will do both: full on action like exploring some rural area or going to a amusement park, but he also enjoys sitting on the Couch with you, playing Video games or watching a movie.
  • He’s the boyfriend to give you his clothes and totally loves you wearing them
  • you won’t ever experience a day like the 4th of July with him.
  • can be possessive if he feels like someone wants to get in between you two, otherwise he gives you a lot of freedom.
  • he may appear like the typical city Boy, but he will take you to a more rural area to go horse back riding with him. He practised  a lot with his brother when he was a child.
  • Baseball. He takes you to Baseball Matches all the time

anonymous asked:

Do you have any finished works? And where can they be bought/ found? I've just been going through your blog and your writing style and themes are very appealing

Thank you so much for your interest! I don’t have anything that’s finalized enough to publish yet, unfortunately. At the moment, it looks like Pearl will be released soonest, hopefully sometime in the winter of this year. 

There are a few other ways you can support my work until, if you so desire…

  • Read and share the first chapter of The Warlord’s Contract when it goes live in two weeks.
  • Sign up to beta read The Warlord’s Contract in July.
  • Sign up to beta read Pearl… some month after July, probably. 
  • Sign up for an ARC of either book closer to their release dates.

(I was really temped to add in a joke bullet point, but this blog is supposed to retain some semblance of professionalism, and I want to limit your suffering while you’re here. So I resisted. Barely.)

HBK for 1 and 2 combined please!

#1: Holiday headcanon + Cooking headcanon

no matter the holiday, he’d want to spend it with family or friends. 4th of july? hey lets shoot off some fireworks. labor day? hey lets jump in the pool! even like cute little holidays like national donut day or something he’d be like hey lets celebrate and get a donut! as for the holidays like christmas, thanksgiving, easter, etc he probably tries to help cook! no matter if he tries to help his mom, you, your mom, anyone! he’ll try to help them cook and to be honestly bless his heart but the boy can’t tell the differenece between sugar and salt

anonymous asked:

"Like let’s not pretend that Julie says some utterly ridiculous shit and can’t follow through on what she WANTS DE to be." "she can’t even allow DE to engage without centreing SE like…??" Yes! When has Julie Plec ever shown DE to be anything but mundane, ridiculous and childish? Show the receipts, pls! The two ships that she claimed were suppose to be more 'mature' (DE/SC and even BE) didn't have original material, she stole from SE. That should tell the anon and others SE was the superior ship.

Anons just don’t seem to understand that Julie BARELY earns anything she says, the only quotes she earns are quotes about SE being true love because we can actually trace that throughout the show.

anonymous asked:

what are your top5 favorite disney movies? :3

i wonder when u sent this anon cos for some reason tumblr hasnt been sending me emails even though my settings say they do… but that’s okay!! i’m sorry if this is replying super late!

this question tho.. omg this will be haaaaaard… disney is like… my heart, anon. i’ve wanted to go back to disneyland since i left in july… it’s a constant ache, you know? but! i will try to answer as truthfully as possible! (i may cheat but that’s not a problem right?)

1. Aladdin - this movie was released the year i was born (1992) and is very very special to me! also jasmine is my no 1 fave of all time princess!

2. Lilo and Stitch - did you know I can do the perfect Stitch voice? and that I actually have a collection of Stitch stuff? Including a plush backpack, 3 different plush toys, a talking stitch that responds to vocal cues, pens, a straw, keychains? yeah… i freaking love that movie xD

3. 101 Dalmatians - i’m getting a Dalmatian when i get my own house. ive wanted one since i saw the movie as a child. if i’d had my way i’d have gotten one back then but my dad doesn’t like dogs so… yeah… but one day! i will have a dalmatian!!!

4. Zootopia - i LOVE anthropomorphic stuff! and i love how disney approaches the subject with their animal character movies, and Zootopia does it the best!

5. Frozen - yeah, yeah, i know. but this movie has so much musical magic, something i truly appreciate. it was also something i bonded with my niece over during a time when she was still working out sentences. it’s easier to converse with similar interests ;) 

i somehow made it out unscathed…. not sure how. but there, managed to narrow down all my favourite disney movies (lmao like all the disney movies ever made) into 5… there’s so many i wanted to put onto this list too but it wasn’t meant to be ;;

thanks for the question anon! i love a good challenge hehehh
