good work stories

There are two types of people

  • fanfic writer: *writing* Oh wow, they are going to love this. This is by far my best work!
  • fic: *witty lines* *perfect love making* *fluffy enough to kill us all* *a dash of angst, a smidgen of hurt/comfort*
  • fanfic writer: Oh man. This is it. This will be my legacy! *sweats into fic* *bleeds into fic* *cries into fic* *spends days perfecting the grammar and verbage and sex scenes* *has 15 betas look over it*
  • fanfic writer: Okay. It is finally time to release my baby on the world. Here you go fandom. You're welcome.
  • fandom: Ha, cute. *like* *kudos*
  • fanfic writer: :/
  • * * *
  • same fanfic writer: *writing* Whatever. This is shit, I don't even care right now. A singing squirrel? Sure, let's do it. Haha, cheesy lines that make no sense, sure. Grammatical errors out the wazoo? Why not. No one's going to read this piece of crap anyway, I literally wrote it on a scrap of 1 ply toilet paper with a broken yellow crayon.
  • fanfic writer: LOL *post*
  • fandom: OMG THIS IS THE BEST THING YOU HAVE EVER GRANTED US WITH, WHERE HAS THIS BEEN ALL MY LIFE, OMG, I NEED A SEQUEL IMMEDIATELY, PLEASE. WHAT THE. I'M NOT EVEN WORTHY. *kudosrebloglikereccomment*
  • fanfic writer: *sigh*

day 06 - dancing

crimson-hope  asked:

Hi Love you guys and your reactions. Especially the teen tag. But my request is for a child Inquisitor (5-11) having such a natural way with animals that even the dragons like them, and having the inner circle and Krem(because I love him) react. Please & Thank you.

Cassandra: She’s about to jump to their defense when a bear walks up to the party, but all the bear does is sniff the child and lick their face, to which they laugh and gently pat its head. She still pulls them away and warns them against interacting with wild animals, but is nevertheless in awe over how they charm creatures, be it horses, nugs, ravens, dogs, whatever. “I knew a girl that was a little like you.” she remarks. “It is a good trait to have, being gifted with animals. They sense goodness within you.”

Blackwall: He watches with a mix of amusement and awe as all the horses in the stables hurry to greet them every time they walk by, and he’s astounded as animals almost never attack the party. “Maker’s breath. Are you an animal whisperer? That’s amazing.” he remarks.

Iron Bull: He knew they were good with animals, and always admired it, but he stops and stares, slack-jawed, as they hug the side of the head of a dragon, who’s practically purring. They had wandered off from camp, and he ran out to find them. They see him, and he gestures for them to come back. He warns them to be careful of wild animals, of course, and not to wander from camp, but– “Wow, Imekari. That was– I knew you were good with animals, but… an ataashi whisperer. Wow.

Sera: She tries to get them to help her with pranks– she knows they like animals, so she figures they won’t mind helping gathering lizards to put in Solas’ bedroll. She stops as the lizards, big and small, seem not intimidated by the kid, and she watches as they crawl along their hands and arms, and as the child giggles in delight. She also sees how happy the horses are to see the Herald, among other animals in the Inquisition. “Wow,” she comments and giggles, “critters like you, eh? Means you’re good. Good for you!”

Cole: “They feel safe around you,” he says happily, “calm and sweet, sometimes bearing food, not wanting violence, a friend. You are a good person and a good friend.”

Varric: Their nickname becomes Charmer for their ability to charm any creatures. He gives them all sorts of books and stories about animals and encourages their interest and ability with animals. “They’re your first rapt audience, Charmer.” he says with a grin.

Dorian: He’s never really spent that much time around non-human or elven or dwarven or qunari animals before (Mod Sarah headcanon: they’re all under the species Homo sapiens, only perhaps separated by subspecies, assuming we’re using a Linnean system for Thedosian creatures) so it strikes him odd the first time he really stops to watch animals fawn over the Herald. He watches for a long time, awed by how readily these animals seem to relax around them, and comments to them later how impressed he is and how much he admires their skill.

Solas: He has met people like them before, readily capable of soothing animals– he’s pretty good at it, too, but not quite as good as them. He likes spending time with the kid as they spend time with animals, and he gets to talking with them. It’s nice to get to know each other and bond over the animals.

Vivienne: She doesn’t have much of an interest in animals, and comments little on it, but she admires how they keep animals from attacking the party. She introduces them to the horses she and Bastien keep, and smiles as they enjoy interacting with the horses and petting them gently. If they behave themselves well, she talks to the advisers about getting them a pet of some sort– even a nug, to her distaste, if they care for it properly. “It will be a good way to introduce them to responsibility. I have no doubts they’ll make us proud.”

Josephine: She thinks it’s adorable and oh so charming. She gives them all sorts of trinkets and books about animals to keep them occupied, and likes to see who and what they’ve befriended. It still makes her nervous to hear from the others about dangerous animals being friendly with the Herald, and she always warns them away from them– no matter how friendly they are, they’re still wild animals, not pets and not to be toyed with, but it amazes her all the while.

Leliana: She likes them. She likes them because the nugs, even the wild ones outside the gates, know no fear of the Herald, and her ravens (even the particularly ornery one, Baron Plucky, that her agents fear) flock to greet them when they come upstairs. She never comments on it– she just admires how much the ravens croon as they gently stroke their beaks and feathers.

Cullen: Fereldens are inclined to like people who are good with animals, especially dogs, and most of all mabaris. They believe the dogs can pick out good people, and Cullen agrees. So when he sees the dogs brought in by scouts and some recruits, they all seem to love the Herald, licking their face and wagging their tags rapidly. Like Leliana, he seldom comments on it, but he loves it.

A short Story In which space dad is confused

Pidge groaned as she walked the hallway away from the fighting. “SHIRO” she yelled as she knocked on his door. “They’re at it again.” She said exasperatedly pointing down the hall.  

Shiro nodded, “Alright, I’m on it”  he walked towards the common room where Lance and Keith were fighting. “Guys, whats going on? Pidge just came to complain, AGAIN, about your fighting.”

“It’s not my fault he NEVER LISTENS” Lance shouted turning to Keith.

“Oh, Like you’re the perfect little angel Lance, You’re the ONE that…”

“THAT’S ENOUGH” Shiro shouted at the two. The turned and stared at Shiro completely shocked, “I’ve had it with you two!” He put his hands on his hips and his voice got louder as he went on, “You’re going to need to learn to get along!’ He stood glaring at the two as they turned from the black paladin to each other.  Keith and lance finally turned towards each other and grinned Keith grabbed Lance’s hips and he looked up to grin at Shiro. Looking back at lance he dipped the blue paladin and with a wink he kissed him. They kissed like one of the first times, deep and needy, like they didn’t know what would happen next. Finally Lance tapped Keith’s shoulder, and Lance looked toward Shiro, “Oh by the way, we’ve been dating the past few months and we didn’t tell you”. Lance kinda shrugged but he was still dipped and it just looked weird. Shiro’s face betrayed him, the absolute look of what the fuck was so apparent Keith almost dropped Lance when he started laughing. Finally standing back up Lance joined Keith in laughter. Shiro turned and walked out of the room back down the hall and stoped at Pidge’s door, “They kissed” He whispered in a small voice.

“Hunk owes me ten bucks” Pidge stated. Shiro just nodded and then went to his room to digest what just happened.

The next morning at breakfast Lance and Keith came in together. Hunk sighed and nodded at Pidge and mumbled something about money.

“We’ve kept fighting A. to make sure you guys didn’t know, and B…” Keith started

“B. Because Keith is a dick who steals my pillows at night.” Lance interjected looking pleased with himself.

“B, because we don’t agree on everything.” Keith said shooting look a glance.

      The End.

@sabertoothwalrus Has an amazing comic that this is based upon. I loved her comic so much, and this probably didn’t do it justice

Lame adaptations and sequels are always like, “how can Mina go back to her stifling Victorian marriage after her experience with the dark, seductive Dracula??”

Meanwhile, Mina marries her best friend, who she’s known since they were children, who she share common interests with, they build a home together, work as partners, make immense sacrifices for each other, support each other through their traumas.

Guys, a marriage isn’t stifling and restrictive just because two people… get along, I guess?

Alex ‘I’m going to jump off this tall ass building and assume my sister will catch me’ Danvers blurting out 'Marry me’ to her girlfriend is absolutely in character.

Alex goes HARD at everything in life, with the previous single exception of her love life.  College-aged Alex went hard, throwing back shots and putting her life in a negative spiral.  DEO recruit Alex goes hard, completely turning her life around and making herself indispensable.  Hell, even now, when she’s essentially second in command behind J'onn, she’s still going hard and doing things like 'Thursday morning knife throwing practice’, which you know isn’t necessary, it’s just who Alex is (and the other DEO agents find it a little terrifying and intimidating, but it also motivates them to be BETTER, because if Alex Danvers is still pushing herself like this…).  Sister Alex goes hardest of all. She was willing to die in a damn plane crash to avoid the risk of Kara exposing herself.

Anyway, the one area of her life she never went hard in, because it never previously made sense to her, was her love life.  And now she’s found someone who fits perfectly into her world, and we think she wouldn’t go all out hard on that?  Maggie gets her, knows about the DEO and Kara, doesn’t show a bit of jealously or desire to come between Alex’s relationship with Kara, they have similar likes and interests, of course Alex is going to grab onto that with both hands and ride it at full speed.  Alex Danvers and Maggie Sawyer were pretty much made for each other.

Mileage will vary, and maybe it’s because I just watched every single Sanvers scene of the season last week (for science/research reasons, okay?) , but I think the progression felt realistic.  If Maggie and Alex were younger, say, 23 or under, I might be more inclined to think Alex shouldn’t be proposing to her first girlfriend so soon, but they’re not; they’re around 30, and they both know their own minds and have strong personalities.  Not to mention, they’ve already declared they want a lifetime of firsts together, which is a kind of proposal in itself.

Alex knows how fragile life can be, knows she and Maggie both work extremely dangerous jobs; add on top of that Kara’s plea for Alex to 'Never let her go’, and how close the entire city came to being destroyed, and I just think the moment played out right.  It doesn’t mean I want to see a wedding in like episode 2 of season 3. Engagements can last a long time, and there’s plenty of material for them to mine from before an actual wedding (more Maggie Sawyer character development and back story, damn it), but the blurted out proposal felt right to me.

“Lately I’ve been feeling great. Sore. But great. Training for a half marathon has been fun but physically tough. However, having this goal has helped tremendously on my nutrition and binging. Mentally knowing that if I lose some more weight it will be a lot less stress on my body. My priorities have kept me grounded. I always recommend to others to make small goals. Goals like going a whole month without eating a certain "junk” food; train for a 3k or 5k until you can do more, or a goal of 5 pounds lost this month. These are all goals that you can obtain when you are mentally focused on actually achieving them. I promise…the end result is always worth it.“

“He is tired of life. He has madness in his soul.”

Alexander Siddig as Mr. Shaitana, “Cards on the Table” - Agatha Christie’s Poirot [2006]

they say never give up on hope
but does the rule still apply
if hope’s the reason i’m hurting?
when hope is the reason
my mind won’t stop reeling at night
and hope is the reason
my body demands i shut the door and
stay under the covers during the daylight.
what happens when
hope is no longer a thing with feathers;
but the elephant on my chest,
the burden on my shoulders,
the creator of the holes in my soul,
and hefting hope’s heaving weight
isn’t building muscle anymore
but shredding what strength i do have.
well had
because hope has rendered me weak.
gripping tightly onto this so called promise
has rewarded me with everything
but what was promised,
this pain isn’t ending
and the light i’ve been seeing
is just my dreams burning.
my clutch is weakening.
i’m more afraid of holding on
than letting go,
at least i know what i’ll be freeing
because right now i don’t what i’m holding on to
if there is even anything to believe in anymore.
if hope is a thing with feathers
then no doubt i lost it,
no doubt it flew away.
it’s calling is to freedom,
so stupid of me to believe i could capture and contain it.
 
—  is it okay to give up on a hope that has given up on you? //r.g.

Lena’s coat game is on POINT. First fuschia and now cobalt? Remember when she mostly wore shades of black and muted shades of maybe green or brown?

And then she met Kara.

From The Desk Of…

Go read this amazing, well written and beautifully executed story that will steal your heart from the get go.

The pictures above are my humble way of saying thank you to the wonderful writers @fictorium @bridgetteirish

a concept: the solution to having more female-led stories is not to remake old stories and make the main characters ladies. Kickbutt girl mcs are incredible, but they deserve their own stories, new ones.

They said the Titanic
Could not sink
But today it sits underwater
That is what water is like
Unpredictable.

I said that I would not cry
But my face is wet
And my eyes are still overflowing
That is what water is like
Uncaring.

They said the tsunami
Would not hit here
But everything is wrecked
In the wake of a monster formed from water
That is what water is like
Dangerous.

You said you loved me
And you would not, could not leave
But I am alone today
And I realize you are water
Unpredictable
Uncaring
And dangerous.

Ao3 Pro-tip

If a ship doesn’t warrant a mention in the summary for your story, you should not use the ship tag.

If the ship merely exists in the background, like because of canon compliance, you should not use the ship tag.

Tag the ship only if it is actively going to be explored or developed in the story.

If you can’t handle the highs and lows then maybe this isn’t meant to be, because I can’t marry someone who is okay with suppressing who I am to make their lives easier. I am only human Amelia and I was dealt a a lousy hand.
