After everything that has happened in the PJO fandom today, I want to end this day on a good note by wishing my favorite couple of all time, Percy Jackson and Annabeth Chase, a happy anniversary. I really do believe that their love gave me hope for finding something like their relationship; the love, care, and respect they have for one another is beautiful. I know I have many ships, but these two will always be my favorite.
All right, so I won’t be changing my name because it appears that it WILL still break links back to my blog and I really dislike the idea of people thinking I’m deactivated/not being able to get back to the source content. It just makes me feel weird?? Idk. So, as much as I enjoyed the idea of changing my name to “JosephGradients” or “DreamyGradients”, it looks like that is simply not to be.
I will be writing the petition - tomorrow. I will still upload the normal positive Joseph content in the morning, but in the evening my usual ‘ask answering’ time will be taken up by me uploading outlines and drafts for you guys to read and give your thoughts on. I want this to basically be a huge, collaborative project, and because of my reading and writing comprehension it’s also nice to have other eyes on it to make sure I haven’t included any major typos/grammatical errors or haven’t gone off on a useless tangent or wound up sounding WAY too pissy or ETC. If you want your voice in on this, send me your arguments! I am also considering whether or not I want to include the URLs of those who directly helped me write the petition? Like I want to give credit but I also understand if you want to remain anonymous!!
All of these posts will be tagged ‘ Petition ‘, so if you do NOT want to see this on your dash, go ahead and blacklist it!
Oh, and if you know a good/trustworthy ‘petition’ site, could you let me know? I’ve found a few but obviously I’ve never done this before so I have no idea what sites are the good ones and what sites are the ones people laugh and scoff at.
Oh, and some general reminders:
1.) ALL of my posts are free to reblog! Whether they be asks, shitposts, personal things…This is a social media site, and I fully accept that it is. If I post it, then I fully expect for people to share it as the site is intended. Plus, I love reading the tags you guys add!
2.) You are ALWAYS allowed to contact me/tag me in your positive Joseph posts. I love talking to people, and those who follow me follow me because they not only enjoy the content I reblog but agree with me in general about the fandom. I mean, how else could you handle all of my constant ranting?
Therefore, I consider all of my followers my friends, and I love talking to my friends. Plus, I am always on the search for positive Joseph content! If you draw it, I’ll reblog it and tell you just how much I love it.
If you want me to answer something in private, then say so in your ask/message me through messenger! Hate will, obviously, be exempt from this privilege, lmao
3.) Papa Gradients loves you and hope you are all having a good day so far!
@voltronwhumpweek2017 I rewrote my fic for Day 6: Poison because I didn’t like how it came out the first time.
(Title from the song Poison by Alice Cooper)
TG: Puking. Not very graphic, but it’s there.
“This sucks.” Pidge grumbled.
Keith couldn’t agree more, but he smirked at her. “I thought you liked the outdoors now.”
She frowned, “Just because I like it a bit more than I used to doesn’t mean that I don’t still have allergies.” she said, sniffing as if to emphasize her point.
Keith shrugged and lifted a hand to wipe the sweat from his brow for what must have been the hundredth time in the past half hour. “Fair enough.”
“Besides, you look about as miserable as I feel, and you’re the one who’s always liked the outdoors.” She said, reaching out to push her sweat drenched bangs out of her face.
This time Keith grimaced, “Yeah, when it’s not so hot and humid that I feel like I’m literally melting. And wearing the armour isn’t exactly helping.”
Pidge nodded, “Remind me to talk to Hunk and Coran about upgrading the armour’s temperature regulators. I mean sure the armour protects us from freezing to death in space, but it’s doing absolutely bupkis to keep us cool enough in this heat.”
I gained followers so quickly, it sort of shocked me. This blog is relatively new, but I’ve had so many nice people follow it, leave comments, and even converse with me. It’s been a very pleasant experience so far.
I had joked with myself that, should I ever make as many posts as I have followers, I’d just quit this blog. That moment has finally arrived. It took way longer than I thought it would.
Even then I’m joking of course. I’m not gonna ditch a blog when I have so much drive and so many ideas. THERE’S TOO MUCH TO DO RIGHT NOW.
Several of us were chatting last night about a ChloNath family. I was struck by motivation. @powerdragonmoon suggested twins and as everyone knows, Twins are right up my alley. So strawberry babies for her!
Have I mentioned how much I enjoy the thought of Harry and Draco back at Hogwarts years after they leave? If not, let me take a few moments of your time to elucidate:
Inter-house rivalry at the head table
inter-house rivalry between classes
Knowing (memorizing) each other’s schedule and casually bringing it up in conversation–with or outside of each other
Seeming like a married couple to everyone else but not realizing it themselves
Intense quidditch debates in the staff room
students like to hang around outside because they’re always loud and always hilarious (and sometimes often result in creative new insults to add to their repertoire)
Grading together in one of their quarters and snarking over ridiculous student answers
Quibbling over teaching methods to the point of pedantry just to be annoying to the other
Trying the “I’ve never been more shocked by student behaviour in my life” approach on students who misbehave, none of whom believe it because they’ve heard stories of Harry and Draco’s time at Hogwarts (usually by the other in classes, ex. Draco climbing a tree because he wanted Harry’s attention)
Patrolling the hallways over Christmas hols
“Here. This is the statue Flitwick said he’s caught kids fooling around behind. Go check it out.”
“Why do I have to go?”
“What are you, scared?”
“… Fine, you absolute tosser. …Woah, Malfoy, come check this out.”
“What? What is it?”
“Just get back here and you’ll see.”
“I’m not going to fall for your tricks, Potter. I’m not going back there.”
They end up necking behind the statue like students
