gonna tag you ok

I’m chasing a ghost
A feeling that’s haunted me for years 
Every time I get close it’s gone

Am I living a lie?
Well, maybe I just expect too much
Maybe it’s time I try for more 

 I will tear my sky
To make it through the night
I will take back my pride
And live while I breathe, live while I breathe 

I will move the ground 
I will pull the curtains down 
Wear my fist on my sleeve
And live while I breathe, live while I breathe

I dont know why I did this 

OOC. guess who’s doing ANOTHER follow forever finally?! 

yes!! it us :’) back with another MILESTONE, and left feeling v grateful and all happy inside~ 

I know it’s been a WHILE since I’ve done one, but I decided to do one only every 250 new followers I get – because as WEIRD as it is to say, we reach new milestones so fast that the moment I post one of these, within the next month or so we reach another. so, to make it more SPECIAL and less EXCESSIVE tbh. 

I always do this thing where I ramble before I actually get to the point of these things, which is tagging everyone! but I just want to say THANK YOU! as always, we have such a loving family here on tumblr and have always felt so welcomed, regardless of the rude people that typically come and go. you guys always give so much support, and I can’t even describe how AMAZED I am that we’ve reached such a big number like this. I never anticipated getting this far and having such a wonderful family here, but I honestly can’t say I don’t know where I’d be today without Ari. she is a huge part of my life and will always be! 

SPECIAL THANKS: @delincuenta for this BEAUTIFUL banner! love u bab :’) also the drawing done by an old friendo who is no longer on tumblr anymore – just wanted a quick disclaimer so ya’ll know I didn’t draw that lmao. 

alright, onto the tags! ( the most important part !! )

okay fuck off disney channel

STOP STEALING ART, RPERS!!

Did I get your attention? I hope I did. Guess what? A lot of rpers use fanart for icons/banners/promo posts/background or sidebar images/etc. If you do one of these things without getting permission from the artist, I’ve got some news for you:

YOU’RE STEALING AND REPOSTING ARTISTS’ HARD WORK.

It’s a shocker, I know. I used to do these things before I started following artists and getting to know some on twitter, and the most common thing I think I’ve seen artists comment about rpers is along the lines of:

“I just don’t get how rpers think they’re special and can steal art all the time”

Mind. Blown. I’ve had my eyes open and I’m hoping I can open your eyes. Yes, making icons of fanart, using art for backgrounds, and god, editing the hell out of fanart, without any permission from the artist? That’s a terrible thing to do, and it essentially makes you one of those hated reposters.

But I’m sure that just one lowly rper’s words won’t account to much, so I took to twitter and made a poll asking artists a few questions, which you can find here. I made it as neutral as possible, but if you want to ignore my salty comments after the poll, I’ve conveniently screencapped it for you, so here are the results of 88+ votes:

Note: This poll is for English speakers and is most likely done by Western fandom artists, but I don’t think that any less respect should be given to non-English speaking artists’ fanart or doujinshi. Also, there are a few artists who have graciously left me comments on their thoughts on things. If you would like to read them, click on the poll link and scroll down.

One of the artists gave me a great comment, which can’t be seen because of their locked twitter, but I’ve capped it here for you all to see:

So, what can you take away from this poll?

  1. Most artists are neutral about rpers, but a significant portion (17%) are done with the lack of respect they have toward artists.
  2. Yes, they see what you’re doing. Don’t think you’re that hidden.
  3. A majority of them is fine with your use of their art, IF YOU ASK AND CREDIT!!!
  4. A smaller majority is fine with edits of their art with permission
  5.  A significant portion (37%) just want you to please, please, just stop editing their art.

Bottom line: ASK BEFORE YOU USE SOMEONE’S ART HOLY SHIT WHAT A NOVEL IDEA.

But it’s so easy to just take fanart and use it as icons right? The fanart is just so gorgeous that you have to use it, and all the expressions are great! You’ll just stop if they ask you, and your posts won’t spread around that much anyway. Right?

  1. Artists shouldn’t have to hound down every one of you. It’s a lot of work and not their job. You should have respect for them. 
  2. If you admire someone’s art, why are you stealing it then? Editing it and cropping it and doing injustice to the artist? Stop. 
  3. Especially for people rping main characters, why do you even need fanart? Using it is telling me that the original series work isn’t good enough for you. All the hard work a creator put into their series is subpar to fanart that pays homage to it, and you think that the original series is inferior. What are you even doing rping for it (or using a faceclaim from it, if you’re an OC) then?

So, what’s the solution?

  1. Use official art. Make it work. Do I need to make a tutorial on how to make caps? Because I will if it will get you to stop.
  2. Go without icons in some rps. Remember that the focus of rping is your writing, not whatever graphics you use! In the words of one artist, @cerisen , “I understand there might not be much but I don’t think rp requires that much art anyway so I don’t see the dependency.” Start weaning yourself off, friends.
  3. Ask artists for permission! You can have a credits page on your blog with screencaps of written permission, and just link it somewhere easy to find. Who knows, maybe you’ll strike up a conversation with the artist as well over mutual love of a series, and you’ll make a new friend too! The numbers show that many artists think that rpers have cool ideas anyway, so get out there and communicate.

I’m tired of seeing all the stolen art on my dash, from strangers to rp partners I really love. It’s gotten to the point where I don’t want to send anyone links to great art I’ve found in fear that it might get stolen because of me. This is an earnest plead: please stop. This has been a thing since before I started rping on tumblr 6? 7? years ago? I’m hoping we can change things now.

Suffer In Silence.- CH

He is your best friend. He is your other half. He is your missing piece.

But he isn’t yours.

He is someone else’s.

You are surrounded with a sea of eyes yet you are only searching for his.

It kills you to see him with her. His smile speaks a thousand words and the touch of his lips on her shoulder makes a chill run down your spine that stops you in your tracks. It’s sad. Everyone around you has had the chance to feel the rush of adrenaline that comes with love, everyone around you has felt what it is like to be loved. But not you. Instead you suffer in silence and let your unspoken words become coated with poison as they build in your head, waiting to be said.

It’s no surprise you can’t warm up to her, instead you flash a fake smile that you have perfected and pray that you have everyone else fooled. You don’t want to be the girl who sits on the side and waits but five years later nothing has changed and you still hope Calum will wake up one day and see what has been right in front of him from the very beginning. You don’t want to be that girl but here you are, holding back your tears as you watch them together and vow to yourself that she will never be able to love him like you do. You don’t want to be that girl but here you are, heart in hand willing for him to take it and call it his. But he won’t. He isn’t yours.

“What are you thinking about?” His voice startles you and it only takes one glance to be knocked off your feet by his mischievous grin. His shoulder playfully knocking yours.

“Nothing. Just like watching you being so happy. I’m happy for you, Cal.” You want to be telling the truth but one glance in her direction and you feel sick.

“See anyone you like? You know I can be a good wing man!” There it is. His eyes are searching yours and he throws a wink in your direction.

Instead you give him your best laugh that you can force and swallow the words that are rising in your chest. You clamp your mouth shut and let them cut you open with their sharp edges. It was supposed to get better but instead it hung over you like a sin, your own dirty little secret that you can’t share with anyone. You look at him and all you can picture is the way he looks at her, how he rung you after his first date and how his voice was filled with so much happiness that it made your stomach sink and your heart shatter. You look at him and ask how is it fair that she has him and you don’t? You were the one to pick him up after every fall, after every heart break and after every hard day. You were there, you had always been there. It is a constant struggle.

A part of you knows she doesn’t deserve him, you don’t deserve him either. How can you when you can’t even be happy for him without having a rage of jealousy surge through your veins. Unrequited love is one of the most potent forms of love there is, every feeling he gives you, she is giving him.

He is your best friend. He is your other half. He is your missing piece.

But he isn’t yours.

He is someone else’s.

But for the time being all you can do is hope, hope that one day he will let you live within the walls of his heart and let you call it home.

Thinking about Adrien obvs.

I’m Right

Summary: There’s this boy who wears black, including a ring on the middle finger of his right hand, and he’s starting to grow tired because all his friends and family talk about is him meeting his soulmate. What they don’t know is that he’s never going to be able to love his soulmate like they want him to.

Warnings: Acephobia, arophobia, self-hate, alcohol, swearing. I think that’s it. Dan freaks out a lot. Generally quite a lot of angst. 

Word count: 5,285

Disclaimer: I’m ace, but I don’t know if I’m aro, so I’m not claiming this is how all aro/ace people feel. Fuck, I don’t feel like this at all, I’m pretty happy with my sexuality. I don’t really get angsty about it, I’m generally quite proud of how I identify. I just imagine that, seeing as our own society is already kinda shit when it comes to this,  in a universe like this soulmate!AU, being aroace would feel kinda shitty, so I exaggerated Dan’s emotions a lot, so uh, yeah. I hope you like it.

A/N: Very much inspired by this fic (warning: mentions of non-con) and this fic (i v much recommend both)

(And hey, just remember that I love you, no matter what your identity is. Nothing is wrong with you, aight? You’re a pretty cool person.)
