I had resigned myself to everyone being dead by the end but somehow I wasn’t prepared for them to lose her. 

Olan Rogers:

I’ve posted about this amazing man once or twice but I wanted to make an official textpost as a shoutout to him. He’s a comedian with videos on YouTube of stories and sketches. His stories are what hooked me, though. They’re hilarious and fun and amazing! His videos are like Pringles. Once one pops, one just can’t stop. When you watch one, you binge! “Just one more” is a lie. And he’s not too difficult to look at, if you know what I mean.

His most popular video is called Ghost In The Stalls. This gif is from the video…

Hello! I was just wondering if you have any ideas on """dale pike's""" Within the Narrative? I don't know what to think of it, because the writing style doesn't seem like fanfic to me and there's enough levels of meta-y things to drown me in. if mofftiss wrote us fanfiction I am going to explode

oh god ‘Within the narrative’ killed me. Oh God. Okay, deep breath. I’ll do the same as I did for ‘The One Word Test’ here, just go through and pick out the most relevant quotes for me as I go along. 

THIS JUST ANALYSES THE INTRODUCTION ‘CAUSE IT GOT LONG. If folk are interested, I could try and pick apart the whole fic if I don’t die from the attempt sos adhflslhgsjlf.

Hope this helps! From the beginning, then?

Okay, so first we have the weird tagging system- why is the fic tagged as both a Tragedy and a Comedy? Well, because of this opening quote from The Three Garridebs: It may have been a comedy, or it may have been a tragedy. It cost one man his reason, it cost me a blood-letting, and it cost yet another man the penalties of the law. Yet there was certainly an element of comedy. Well, you shall judge for yourselves.” See this post by @teaandqueerbaiting!

^I take this to mean we’ve got our ‘comedy’ Garridebs in The Final Problem, the cheap dangling Garridebs brothers gag. We’re still waiting for our truly emotional, true Garridebs scene between John and Sherlock.

Then, we come to the summary and opening notes to chapter 1:

Right, who on earth is Proper Dave? See this and this post by @may-shepard  @laughing-at-the-darkness and @221bloodnun. Proper Dave is a character from the Doctor Who episode Silence in the Library, written by Steven Moffat and directed by Euros Lyn, who also directed The Blind Banker.

Proper Dave is a PILOT (ooh little on the plane in TFP: ‘the driver’s asleep!’) He’s called ‘Proper Dave’ in contrast with another crew member named ‘Other Dave’ because ‘Proper Dave’ was there before him. It’s never twins, Watson. 

I’ve not watched this episode but basically for some reason Proper Dave “acquires an extra shadow”- this means the villains of the episode are attacking him. The Doctor tries to save him but fails, leaving Proper Dave’s “data ghost” to echo his last thoughts:  “Hey, who turned out the lights?”  Side-note: if this is the 4th favourite fic, I wonder where Proper Dave’s 3rd and other fave fics are… ;)

Now, what about the “A boring story” bit? I cannot for the life of me find the quote, but I remember Steven once describing The Three Garridebs as “a very boring story”- clearly tongue in cheek as it’s one of the most iconic moments of ACD canon, even saying in his own foreward to the stories that “you’ll be blinking back tears when the moment comes.” (x) Tagging @waitedforgarridebs in case she knows where the quote is, the resident Garridebs expert. ;)

“about the stuff between the lines.”- well, we’re all very good at finding that. <3

And the notes. Of course, nothing is certain, but to me these only become worthwhile and genuinely funny if you see them as written by someone who’s…well… very much an insider on the show. “Series 4 and 5 spoiler alerts”- that’s very presumptuous of you. ;) Saying they’ve deduced things correctly, including what they’re “probably” going to call the Watson baby– this is so funny if at this point they genuinely hadn’t decided what the baby was going to be called lmao.

Then we get one of the most bizarre meta introductions I’ve had the pleasure of reading:

“Most people think they know what’s going to happen. Perhaps you’ll dismiss this narrative early, thinking it is boring and banal and not worth the distance to that innermost cave. Or perhaps you’ll be too easily impressed and think this is a great story.
Perhaps you’re just looking for a cheap thrill. Well, this one has thrills, but they don’t come cheaply. The Powers-That-Be never gave me any trigger warnings, so I’ll give none to you, save this: Here there be dragons.
In any case, we’re going to follow the rules. Stories have rules, of course, just like chemistry, like biology. Like gravity. Perhaps—if you are an omnivorous reader yourself—you know that there are certain rules that a good story must never break.
It turns out that we’ve been wrong… and right… all along. That’s the beauty of it. That’s what makes this a good mystery.
Back up a bit. Ready the players. Set the stage.”

Why, why why is this so meta. Why does it read like a set of instructions. It’s so out of place for a fic. Why is either “dismissing the narrative early” or “being too easily impressed” such an apt summary for some reactions to The Final Problem? The stage is set, the curtain rises. Here be dragons. 

We know “the rules” of this story- and we know that The Final Problem broke all of them. Steven and Mark themselves have said the episode was deliberately full of “transgressions.”

They’ve been wrong….(The Final Problem)…and right (every other episode) all along. The mixture makes it the mystery. We need to- and have solved- that mystery: why it was wrong. Because it didn’t end with John and Sherlock together. The rest of the true love story is yet to be told.

They Cuddled, They Danced, They Kissed.

Prompt: I got it here.

Tagging: @virusap and @meyers-princess

Ship: HamLaf

Word Count: 1122

Summary: They had won the war, and manage to find themselves a moment of peace.

Warnings: Light angst, mentions of death (Neither Laf or Alex die, so no need to worry.)

A/N: I love these suckers at the moment, so be expecting a lot more of their content. God, they’re too cute.

No matter how much rain hammered down from the sky, how many thick grey clouds hung in the air, how strong the thick smell of blood and death lingering was, or the number of countless dead bodies lying over the war-torn ground, everyone had a small smidge of happiness in their hearts. People had died, so, so many people, yet the war had finally been won; they were an independent colony, and no longer had to put up with King George the Third, who was a harsh ruler, and only thought about himself, not caring for his people, his friends, or even his family. Money was his main priority, that and making others miserable.

George Washington, their general at the time, smiled, though it was strained. He looked as if he had gained a few years on what he used to look like, but a war was expected to have that effect. Very few people’s smiles reached their eyes. Yes, they were free and no longer had to fight, but above that, they were exhausted and had lost too many friends to ever be the same again. Whether it was a brother, a drinking partner, a cousin, someone you shared a tent with, or a stranger that you had only hit it off with today, to have lost them was still too much. No one went unaffected.

Though some managed to hide it.

TO BE CONTINUED

hopes for hands of time

Pixal gets her own body back - i mean i love that they are together all the time but i still feel it would be healthy for them to have actual physical contact

Zane gets his original and/or a more human like body again (but this is the least likely to happen as we have already seen some sets)- i feel like the creators just dropped the whole ‘human’ thing. yes Zane accepted that he was a robot, but his personality and power source made him more then that, and he was the closets thing a robot could be to human. the creators have forgotten that there was a WHOLE DANG COMIC created with the plot of Zane wanting to be truly human, and experience true emotions

Zane meets Echo in the main timeline- i feel like it would be very interesting, and that they would have a lot to talk about, maybe dr. Julien left a recorded message for the explaining things

Skylor gets her powers of amber back- i cant imagine having an amazing ability, only to have it permanently taken by her own father. i feel like we should at least have her talk about it a bit, maybe with nya, who for the longest time didnt even have powers.

Nya stays Samurai X- ok so i feel like Nya loses some of her independence when she becomes a ninja, i know she would be pushing herself harder as a ninja, but i still would like her to be a samurai, and inspire other girls to be independent, maybe even have an apprentice to be the next Samurai X

GARMADON COMES BACK- this one needs no explanation

Seliel makes an appearance maybe?- she is from one of the official comics

WE FIND OUT WHAT THE OTHER FREAKING REALMS ARE

Jay confronts his parents about being adopted in this timeline- and meets his alive biological father

maybe some Kai and Nya sibling bonding- this one will for sure happen because some of the sets have some …. people in them

Kai failing horribly with his flirtation skills

we find out exactly how much Zane remembers from before becoming the titanium ninja - and why he is so sassy all the time

Cole interacting with his father more like seriously did his dad even know he was a ghost

Cole being afraid of water and other things like forgetting he’s not a ghost anymore- like walking through walls, like he tries to and gets confused when he doesn’t go through them for a it before he remembers, really appreciating hugs and physical things. gets really clingy but in a literal sense and wants to FEEL EVERYTHING LIKE GRASS AND CATS AND PLAY WITH THE OTHERS’ HAIR AND JUNK. avoids water completely for the first few days, no showers, really stinks.

anonymous asked:

aaaaaaaaa 12 and 87 andreil pleassseee!!! i love ur writing

Hey there! I’ve gotten rlly bad at tagging everything rn, including the ask things, so I found the ask thing I think you’re referencing but if it’s not feel free to tell me and give me a link/ send me an ask with the numbers and their prompts :) I’m still not entirely convinced someone actually wanted me to write something and didn’t just ask the wrong blog.

Andreil: 12 “You like me?” &
87 “For some reason, I’m attracted to you.”

“You like me?” Neil’s voice is startlingly loud in the quiet and Andrew glances at him, his cigarette hanging between his fingers and dropping ash off the edge of the roof. The sunset burns everything orange and pink and sucks the gold out of Andrew’s hair and eyes, lighting half his face up in one color and shading the other half of his face in black. He looks like a painting, or a ghost.

Neil’s words echo that night at Eden’s, when he’d felt the ground drop out from under him and Andrew had started this- the “this” he’d yet to define.

“I hate you,” Andrew replies, just like he had that night, and Neil would be an idiot to think it was anything more than a shadow making it look like Andrew’s lips were curving upward.

“Yeah,” Neil says with a sigh, running a hand through his hair and slumping sideways to lean on the foot-and-some tall barrier at the edge of the roof. He lays his arm on the cooling concrete and rests his cheek on that arm. His eyes lazily trace roads, people, bits of trash-

“For some reason,” Andrew starts and Neil looks over to watch his lips capture the cigarette again. He waits, eyes on Andrew’s mouth as Andrew’s shoulders lift and his chest swells with his inhale. He holds the smoke, and then lets it go in a plume of silver-blue smoke that dissipates in the air.

“I’m attracted to you,” Andrew says and Neil, distracted by the way the words shape Andrew’s lips as he let them out, almost forgets to listen. But they fall into the air with an important weight so he pulls his errant trails of thought back as Andrew looks at him.

Neil doesn’t know if Andrew expects him to respond, and what he would say. Something snarky to break the tension, something that needs to be said but would likely chase Andrew away. He resists the urge to speak and waits.

“I don’t see this going well,” Andrew says finally, setting his eyes on the sunset again. Neil’s heart feels like it tries to rip itself apart, Andrew acknowledging this as a “this” sending half of it into his throat, and the other half dropping into his stomach at Andrew’s words. Neil swallows hard. Andrew goes quiet again and Neil is waiting wait waiting-

He’s done waiting.

“Well,” he says and he resists the urge to let a negative tone blanket his words. He stares stubbornly out at the fading scarlet line of the sun and refuses to look at Andrew.

“I’m going to like you,” he continues in an easy tone, “and maybe someday I’m going to-” he almost chokes, “-love you.” Maybe I already do, he thinks.

“And what you let your emotions do is your choice, and what you do with this information is your choice.” As if Neil could ever make a choice like this for him. Neil won’t let himself make a choice for Andrew ever again, not after Evermore and Easthaven.

“But,” he says, “I will always feel that way. So… there’s that,” Neil says, his courage for speaking so emotionally to someone so against emotions running out and fizzling on his tongue. He still doesn’t look at Andrew.

“Don’t always me,” Andrew says flatly and Neil looks up at the sky, seeking out the brightest stars breaking out despite the light still in the sky.

“Don’t take my always,” Neil says back softly. He goes to stand but fingers curl in his sleeve and pull him back down until he’s kneeling in front of Andrew’s crossed legs. The slight change in the light has shifted the way the light affects his face, what once was leeched of color now glows. His hair is burnished gold and his eyes are rich and impossibly bright for sitting in such a blank face.

Andrew still hasn’t spoken, just looks at him. Then, slowly, Andrew leans forward. Neil’s eyes flutter closed but Andrew’s lips don’t touch his. They settle on the peak of his cheekbone, over the overlapping burns pressed there. Andrew’s lips brush directly over where the “4” was tattooed on and then seared off of his cheek.

Neil doesn’t open his eyes as Andrew shifts away and he hears the crunch of Andrew walking. He hears the door open and close and he stays frozen kneeling on the roof.

Finally after a few minutes, a few hours, eternity, he opens his eyes. The sun is gone and when he looks up the sky is black, but the stars persist.

Mama do you know
that sometimes you say my name
as if it breaks your heart,
as if it carries a weight so heavy
that it makes you crumble just to breathe it?

It feels like a fist upon my cheek,
like a hand around my throat,
like the very beginning of a war
that I cannot fight in.

I fall into your arms
like a wounded soldier
and I can hear my ghost
echo in your chest.

It tells me to come home,
to come back,
to return,

but I do not know when it was
that I first became lost

and I worry
that I cannot be found.

Enshrined 1/1

The shortest tiniest ficlet because work is crazy and I haven’t got time to sit and write much.  

Between This is not happening and Deadalive


I don’t know why I haven’t cancelled the lease on Mulder’s apartment. Certainly I now have access to enough funds that I might buy out of the contract but I just can’t seem to bring myself to take that final step; in fact, I’ve done nothing at all to it and the apartment remains exactly the same as it did on the day he left for Oregon all those months ago.

I kid myself that I will call his landlord tomorrow, just as I have told myself the exact same thing almost every day since I watched as his casket was lowered into the frozen ground and the realisation finally hit that this was actually the end. That this time he was gone forever without ever really knowing how much I loved him or that I was carrying inside me the precious miracle born of that love.  

He will never know and sometimes, when I manage to find a way up through the numbness that prevents me from really feeling anything at all, that final injustice overwhelms me with such hopeless longing that I’m not convinced I will make it through even one more day without him. 

I miss him with a ferocity that steals my breath, making my blood feel sluggish as everything just seems to happen in slow motion; time standing still even while the world carries on around me and as much as I want to move on, there is a part of me that still hopes for a miracle; that this has all just been a bad dream I will awaken from to feel the warm weight of him pressed against me.

I hear his voice in the dead of night, like a ghost inside my head, echoing whispers of all that will now never be and I am bitter, so fucking bitter because this wasn’t how it was ever meant to be. For him to die without me by his side, to not have that final affirmation of how important he had become, to not feel the touch of my lips on his skin before he succumbed is just too cruel after everything we have been through.

And maybe that’s why I have kept his apartment - a shrine to our relationship that had barely even begun to blossom before he was taken away from me; a place that I escape to every day on the weak pretext of feeding his fish, of swiping a cloth over the dustless surfaces that due to my daily ministrations are properly clean for probably the only time since Mulder moved in.

Mulder.

Tears blur my vision suddenly because, as strange as it sounds, I try very hard not to think of him when I am here; surrounded by the scent of him that seems to be fading with each day that passes and sometimes I find myself panicking because I can no longer remember how his voice sounded, how it felt when he breathed softly on my skin, the way he looked at me, eyes heavy with desire, a gentle smile curving his beautiful lips and melting the lines from his face.

How long before those memories really do fade into nothingness?  How long before I walk through his door and the last, lingering traces of him have just disappeared?

How long before he becomes memory without form?

I don’t even want to think about it.

Besides, I have more pressing matters to attend to.  I had arrived yesterday to discover one of the Mollys drifting listlessly near the surface of the water, small body tilted to one side, too weak to even attempt to right herself.  I probably should have removed her yesterday and spared her agony but I just couldn’t bring myself to end her life, not when she was once Mulder’s fish and so, coward that I am, I ignored the problem and instead went home.

Of course, when I returned today I found her dead.

I should be sorry, but I’m not, knowing she is lucky because at least she won’t miss him anymore and after I have flushed that tiny life away I sink to my knees and clutch at the towel that still hangs by the shower, pressing it to my face as I breathe deeply, searching desperately for the scent of him that I need so badly in order that I might survive this; that I might carry on for the sake of our son.

And just as have done on every visit to this shrine to my partner that remains untouched, and even though deep down I know it is futile, I close my eyes and begin to pray.

End

I Just stumbled upon you two days ago and I really enjoy your art and humor you apply to the Rwby cast. Especially the ninja pirate cowboy one lol. Keep up the good work. I also got three questions to ask. First, could you draw some Lancaster (Jaune x Ruby) doodle. Second, what are your favorite ships? And third, will there be color or colour in your art in the future?

Hi there! Thank you mate, and I’m sorry I took so long to reply! And to answer you:


1. I don’t really roll down that path but sure thing buddy, I mean, more reason for me to draw :D

and have a Bonus Panel too


2. Ooh, here’s my favourite ship:

Thank you for your support! Hope to hear from you again!

So I know a few people were asking for some pics of the Gasters I submitted for the ECHO Gaster project. I know that these ones specifically might not have actually been in the video, but these are some of my favorites of the ones I did.

I did 3 Gasters. Pre Void being the top, Void being the middle, and Post Void being the bottom. In the project however my Gaster’s name was Gentster. The reasoning for this is I’d like to think my Gaster is a gentle soul? Although sometimes he can get a bit crazy. Originally he was named Gentle Dings, but the creator of the project wanted it to be a single name so it was shortened to Gentster. As for the Vienster you guys saw in the credits, that’s a typo. It was meant to be V(Gentster). Oh well, I really don’t mind.

I was just so happy to participate in the project :>
