have i mentioned recently that i loved this character

I have recently become utterly smitten with the Society of Gentlemen book series by KJ Charles. The book covers are so disappointing and bland and do not do these characters justice AT ALL so I needed to draw the boys myself.


If you like Regency-era stories about gentlemen who like other gentlemen then you should check this series out; it’s got some lovely romance and friendships and supporting-each-other-through-hardship and era politics and scandal and drama and pining.  Not to mention bi and demi and trans characters, and none of the conflicts revolve around anyone being ashamed of their sexuality. Oh, and they all have HAPPY ENDINGS! Also people actually communicate and it avoids so many stupid misunderstandings that are so common in love stories. 

(Basically everything I’ve ever wanted in historical romance and more) 

Endless List of Favorite Characters: Wonder Woman (DC Comics)

I came here to parley. But do not mistake a desire to avoid violence for the inability to deal it”

Recently finished rereading the aftg trilogy again… I had to draw the kids

(click for fullsize!)

ok so for Operation Tag clean up I decided to look at couple of things.

I was having a conversation with my dad one day and he watches the show casually sometimes and I asked him ‘how it is that a guy can kill a butt ton of walkers and take out whole a a flame thrower and blow up a tank by himself but then does this.’

And he told me, guys are single task orientated meaning they can only focus on one thing at a time. This becomes problematic when there is a female around that they like (or love) a lot. They are incapable of doing simple tasks, such as carrying a water jug for example,  in their presence because the female takes up all their attention.

It’s all about focus. The dude could be the most sure-handed person in the world but a women they really like is there they can literally forget how to do basic things such as breath or even remember their names.

He told me it happened to him plenty of times around my mom when they first met, which is adorable btw.

Daryl is sort of awkward in social interactions anyways, that’s pretty clear but from guys, ones who are honest at least, this happens a lot. And not around girls your just ‘friends’ with. Call it nervous, call it flustered, call it twitterpated it’s all the same. Them damn butterflies will trip you up every time.

In fact this a pretty common trope on tv and in movies. Sure handed character becomes an idiot around someone they like. Suddenly you can’t do anything right.

And of course the adorable face palm thing, and Carol looking at him like he’s so precious to her..

It’s just too cute I can’t even sometimes.

I was also thinking of something else more recent now that I mentioned ‘romantic’ tropes.

I was think of that moment on the porch.. this one right here..

A character is leaving on some mission or important task and they stop.. and turn and look back at the person they are leaving in a longing way, sometimes regretful way.. and go back for a little more love..

They can’t leave without having their love in their arms and vice-versa. And I’ve seen this sooo many times in movies and tv and even in books. A lovers goodbye is never just one goodbye, a lot of times its 2 or 3.

If it’s not supposed to be romantic in any then why use these these ridiculously romantic tropes. And there’s tons more as well but those two stood out on the top of my head almost immediately figured I’d share.

And btw my dad, even he, as a casual watcher knows can tell Daryl loves Carol ‘like that’ just by watching a few episodes.

Ya know.. just sayin :)

inukag-4ever  asked:

I would LOVE to know what you think are the best, high quality, in-character, well-written fics out there. Other than LMAL and Feniknussen (too lazy to look up how to spell that author). I'm in desperate need of something incredible to read!!

Girl, I know that feel! Sometimes you just need a really good fic to read.

I’m happy to tell you about my go-to fics, but I get the feeling you’ve probably read (or heard of) most of them already. ^^; Hopefully there’ll be one or two in here that are new to you. (Also, please note that my InuKag bias is really obvious with this list, because they’re all InuKag-oriented.) 

  • Surprising absolutely no one, I must lead off with Sachi by Quillwing717. It’s still the best fanfic I’ve ever read. The quality of the writing is A++, the characterization is on point, and the slow burn is fucking phenomenal. Waiting on a Wish is also amazing, and I reread that one pretty frequently. She’s also written a one-shot called Holding Them that is super sweet and lovely. 
  • Nice Things by Bread Head is a oneshot I recently found that blew me away. Inuyasha and Kagome are very, very in-character, and the whole piece is bittersweet and adorable. (The author also has a multi-chapter fic, In the Shade of the Sacred Tree, that you might want to check out; the writing is excellent, but I’ll admit that I bailed on it because it made me too sad. But if you’re in the mood for sad, that should really hit the spot.) 
  • Basically anything written by Reinamy will be wonderful, but I particularly love Mistletoe Tales and Speed Dating for Dummies. This author’s writing style is awesome—the characters just come alive. 
  • The Half Breed’s Wife by Gypsyn is basically everything I ever want in a fic. Her other stuff is great too, though. I particularly enjoy Shattered and Remade for its imagery and symbolism; and A Story for Shippo is hella cute and guaranteed to make you smile.
  • I don’t know how she did it, but I Hear Your Silence by KeiChanz is pretty much InuKag perfection. Like I don’t even know what else to say about it. A+ fluff, to die for, 10/10 will absolutely read again. 
  • The writer bluepianos has some great Inuyasha fics—refreshingly well-written and well-characterized—and I especially enjoyed the one titled ふたりごと.    
  • I just recently read I Have a Confession to Make by kimiko888 and I love it. Humor can be hard to write well, but this author totally nails it. Not to mention the fact that it’s chalk-full of InuKag cute. The chapters are stand-alone pieces, and some are more in-character than others; overall, though, I think it’s a really good collection.
  • Folktale by HoneyBee31. Like, honestly? This fic does so many things really, really well. Pacing, world-building, characterization, romantic development… it’s a little gem of a fic that I reread a lot. 
  • Elemental: A Feudal Soap Opera by Xi Hou Jun is just quality writing. As the title suggests, it’s full of that good, good drama. The characterization is kinda up for debate, depending on how you interpret the characters; personally I think the characterization is good, particularly Inuyasha’s perspective.  
  • You’ve probably seen me recommend this fic before, but I have to include Therapeutic by everstar. It’s a perfect little snapshot of InuKag. Grade-A characterization, flawless writing, 10/10, wish there was a sequel. I also love this author’s (sadly unfinished) multi-chapter fic, Pieces of Me
  • Remember when I said that humor can be hard to write well? Shikigami by Elvirus knocks it outta the park. I swear, this fic reads like canon. It could be an episode from the anime or a chapter from the manga. 
  • The Hunt for the Perfect Man by CharmedReality is an excellent, funny, light-hearted read.  
  • I’m 100% sure most everyone in the fandom has heard of, if not already read, the following fic, but I’ve gotta include it in any list of well-written, well-characterized fics. Behind the Silk Screen by eien-no-basho is a top tier fic, ain’t no mistake. The amount of detail and historical research is wonderful, and the story itself is a joy to read. 
  • Again, I feel like I’m preaching to the choir with this rec, but I gotta, I just gotta: Phony Digits by our very own StoatsandWeasels is 100% worth the read. She nails Kagome’s character, and I love how she writes Sango. 

Okay, I think I’d better stop before I bury you alive. I’m sorry if these are all fics you’ve already read—if so, maybe a couple of them are due for a reread? XD

Happy reading! 

Drunken Mistake.

requested by @stressedbisexualwinchester - I have had an idea for this, but i want to read it more than i want to write it, and i love everything you write so. Will you do a fic where the reader is apart of the cast and she turns 18 and she goes and gets a tattoo, and then the boys find out one day or the producers and get really mad, or just tease her for it. I really want to get a tattoo but i have to wait a couple years to get it (sigh). ILY so much. 

BASED ON SEASON 7.

Characters- Jared x platonic!reader, jensen x platonic!reader.

Warnings- mild language, mentions of being drunk.

A/N- Before you read this, go and check out the lovely person who requested this, their fics are amazing!


You had recently turned twenty one, which meant you got drunk, which meant you made a stupid decision on getting a tattoo… whilst drunk… not your smartest move.

Stepping into the makeup trailer you smiled at the familiar sight of Jared and Jensen sat on the chairs getting whatever makeup they needed doing done, they turned towards you and smiled, “there’s the birthday girl!” Jared called making you snort, “my birthday was three days ago but thanks anyways” you replied sitting in the chair between them, “did you get drunk?” He asked, you shook your head but smirked at this question, “she did! Look at that smirk” Jensen teased nudging you slightly causing you to throw your head back in laughter, “shut up” you muttered tucking a piece of hair behind your ear.

“Uh, Y/N? What’s that behind your ear?” Jared asked, you furrowed your eyebrows at him, “what do you mean?” You replied confused, he took out his phone and took a photo, he passed it to you. Zooming in your eyes widened, “is that-” you started but got interrupted by Jared and Jensen’s laughter, “you have a penis tattooed behind your ear?” Jensen asked laughing loudly, “but that wasn’t there before…” You trailed off and closed your eyes in embarrassment, the boys laughed even more, “you got a drunken tattoo of a penis!” Jared hollered, you put your head in your hands in embarrassment.

“Why did I let this happen?” You muttered to yourself, you felt a hand rub your back, sitting back up you let out a sigh, “I can’t believe this… I can’t believe I did this” you mumbled, Jensen quickly squeezed you into his side, “you can always get it removed” he said rubbing your arm in comfort, Jared patted your head, “yeah, what do they call it? A vasectomy?” He asked before breaking out into laughter that was soon followed by Jensen, you groaned in frustration, “you guys are the worst!” You cried, making them laugh more.

You were in the middle of filming a scene, you were sat at a diner table with Jensen and Misha sat in front of you and Jared sat next to you.

“We need to think of something, and fast. Dick has already made progress with  SucroCorp, we can’t afford to waste anymore time” Misha said as Cas, Jensen rolled his eyes, “Cas, we don’t know where to begin with this. We have no plan, we’re still waiting for Kevin to translate the tablet… Hell, we don’t even know where Dick is!” He said in frustration, there was a slight pause before Jared spoke up, “what do you mean we don’t know where Dick is? He’s on the back of Y/N’s ear” he said before bursting into fits of laughter, shortly followed by Jensen.

Misha stared between you all in confusion, “wait, what’s going on?” He asked with a small smile on his face, “when Y/N got drunk Friday night she got a penis tattoo behind her ear” Jensen explained in-between laughs, Misha started laughing. You slouched in the chair in embarrassment, “I hate all of you” you muttered, your face flushed red. 

“Aww she’s blushing” Jared cooed whilst pulling you into a hug, you rolled your eyes “I’ll punch you” you grumbled causing the three men to laugh again, Jensen and Misha leant forward and started pinching your cheeks, “aww you’re adorable when you’re angry” Misha teased, you started giggling before slapping away their hands, you pulled yourself away from Jared’s grip and looked at them all, “fuck all of you” you said which sent all four of you into fits of laughter.

Emma Swan Appreciation Week begins tomorrow, April 2nd, 2017, and will end April 9th!

For many of us, Emma Swan is one of the most important female characters to appear on our television screens in recent years. She is a complicated, flawed, amazing character that we’ve watched evolve for 6 long years. As things have been rather tense for our girl lately, some of us thought this might be a good week to spread a little love about the absolute awesomeness of Emma Swan.

This is a pretty loose event, of the “whatever-the-fuck-you-want,” variety. There won’t be any specific days devoted to specific themes, but you can refer to this post for possible ideas, dates, rules, and a nifty tagging system.

  • First, dates. As I mentioned above, this event will begin tomorrow (hmm, I wonder why), April 2nd and end April 9th.*
  • Posts for this event in particular should be tagged with #emmawk17.

Before we get into the fun idea portion of this post, a few rules. There are only 2** and they’re pretty simple.

1. This event is about Emma Swan. As such, all edits, fics, meta, etc., should be focused largely on her. Obviously, the relationships that we develop with those around us will inevitably impact who we are as people, but the majority of your focus should be on Emma Swan. Any and all relationships are allowed for exploration, but keep Emma at the forefront. If you have a question about whether or not your work meets this criteria, you’re welcome to ask me.

2. Keep the goddamn hate to a freaking minimum, don’t make me turn the car around.***

How might you participate this week?

  • Fic, obviously, and of any length. As this is a bit last minute, if you don’t think you have the ability to write anything new this week, you are, of course, more than welcome to re-blog or recommend some older work that does good by Emma Swan.
  • Edits, edits, edits. Got a good poem or song lyric kickin’ around up there that’s v Emma Swan relevant? Make and share with the #emmawk17 tag.
  • Playlists! idk about y’all, but I love me a good themed playlist.
  • Meta and essays. I hate to say it, but, some of us might be a bit nerdier than others. Put that brain to good use and write a short essay about Emma as a character, about Emma and sexuality, feminism, economics, whatever the fuck you want! Remember, keep it loose!

And that’s it! Pretty simple, pretty straight forward. Most importantly, have fun with it! Get emotional. I’ll probably get emotional.

*Although, tbh, y’all should be appreciating Emma Swan every damn day.
**There’s one more. Tag your fucking spoilers.
***I have absolutely no problem turning the car around.

The brain trust that you can also whine to if you have a problem with this perfectly harmless week of fun and feminism: @winterbythesea @mahstatins @the-reason-to-sail-home @swanandapirate@captainwiley @seastarved@ofshipsandswans

Nocturnal Villagers (Bats, Owls…) -

Imagine playing late at night and seeing that a few of your villagers are still out to greet you and hang out, even after all the cats, dogs, and bears have gone to sleep. You may be feeling like a little bit of comfort on a cold night and the world is quiet because everyone has gone to bed. You pop onto your Animal Crossing game and see that a little owl has come running to you asking you to deliver a letter that he forgot to send to his friend, who just so happens to be a bat.

Top Five Dan Stevens Roles

Oh my you do ask ‘em! They’ve changed (perhaps) significantly over this year (and there’s still two movies to go…)

This is a personal favorite list rather than some accumulation of critical reviews. I’ll try to do a variety and not just the most recent roles…

All roles that demonstrate  this quotation: “He’s a terrific actor, one of the best of his generation. I’ve seen him in several things and I’m always amazed by his versatility. And he can play characters who seem to have a rich inner life–you always think you’re only seeing the tip of the iceberg.” [Moises Kaufman, director The Heiress Sunday Times magazine 9.9.12]

And since it’s more fun I”ll rank them 5 to 1

**honorable mentions --David Cameron /Hilde. He speaks fluent German and is charismatic as hell. I love every minute he’s in Hilde. And James Harvey/The Ticket. So damned good.

5. Morris Townsend/The Heiress – Dan’s performance tried to give MT some depth of character (at least in the latter stages of the play) rather than a one note mustache twirling villain or petty minded egotist who never learns his lesson. I do realize (Jessica Chastain) Catherine’s empowerment–but it’s that much more poignant to me in how (in this 2012-13)  Broadway production it comes at the potential cost of love. I liked that. And besides his perfect period American accent! That scene with Aunt Lavinia with the brandy decanter..! His inability to understand Catherine’s rejection at the end as he’s pounding on the door. I saw it in person. I will always remember it. 

4. Nick Guest/The Line of Beauty–  The raw vulnerability in Nick from the very first time you see him on screen drew me in and hasn’t let go. He’s very observant of the world but gullible. He’s far from perfect but yet despite his yearnings and his innocence, he knows who he is and what he wants–even if what he wants is impossible to attain. It’s that combination I find fascinating.

In E1 The Love Chord. The scenes with Catherine discussing “what’s it like being gay?” The awkward but thrilling meeting with Leo. The scene in the antique shop. The end of that relationship… I love it.


“I could have had her on the floor…” Nick, wasted and bitter, reliving the glorious moment he escorted the Lady herself (Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher) onto the dance floor when she wouldn’t given anyone else the time of day. It was –for a moment– a thing of beauty.

3.  Pre-curse Prince/the Beast/post-curse Prince/ Beauty and the Beast
The movie is about seeing past the exterior and that also counts for the Prince. He’s the same underneath as he was as the Beast– bookish and in love with Belle. So love the Beast yes…but also love the man he grew back into. And love the relish with which Dan plays the pre curse Prince. And admire his commitment and tenacity to do all the motion/facial capture for the Beast. And the singing… don’t ever forget the singing. 

2. Matthew Crawley/ Downton Abbey. My soul mate. Every time I think he’s not as important to me I see something on tumblr that reminds me and I fall even more in love. I love Matthew. He’s fictional but I don’t care. He’s sweet and kind yes but he doesn’t suffer fools and he’s the only one Mary will listen to and restrain her insufferable tendencies.His face is a reflection of his soul. And it is beautiful. Dan creates a full blooded person out of what could have been an average bland romantic lead. And for this I love him 

1. David Haller/Legion. But now comes the time to admit that maybe…just maybe… David Haller is my favorite role. I’ve resisted saying this because I love Matthew so much. But David is just fucking fantastic. He’s scared of who he is…who he might be… what he might become.

He’sin love with Syd but I suspect that will be tested in ways they cannot even begin to imagine…

Originally posted by legioned

He is complex.  He works with the Shadow King in Ep5– he’s not taken over by it.He’s the one who fights to free himself from it. I needed that to happen. I love that we don’t know everything yet.

Originally posted by davidhallerdaily

But that’s also why I’m waiting to see with David. I’m waiting for S2 to see just what new crazy shit is brought down on David and how he handles it.  Every gif, every picture, every time I sit down and rewatch Legion I see new things. I get drawn in all over again. Dan is so excited and turned on by this role. By it’s promise to give him free reign to create a vulnerable, sweet, cunning, confused man full of superhuman mutant badassery. 

Bring it!

so there you have it… a classic long rambly love letter to Dan Stevens… :) 

And yes I realize The Guest exists… believe me I do. I was trying to be different…

All-Time Favourite Ships!

From books, movies, Broadway, and TV shows!

(list not in any particular order and may contain spoilers).


1. Bellarke: Bellamy Blake and Clarke Griffen from The 100 (TV)

Okay, I know I said that the list is in no particular order, but this ship is my all time OTP since I started watching The 100. And I can’t sleep at night knowing that they are not officially canon yet, even if it was pretty clear in Praimfiya that it will be endgame! So exited for their reunion in Season 5. I spend hours on end reading Bellarke fan fiction all day, every day. And Bellamy is my baby and I love his so much. And I can’t wait to see how he is after the six-year time jump on the show. Sometimes, I think that I watch the show just for these two.


2. Haleb: Hanna Marin and Caleb Rivers from Pretty Little Liars (TV)

Again, like I said that this list is in no particular order, this ship would defiantly be in my top 5. Anyway, I still have to properly sit down and watch Season 7B of Pretty Little Liars so don’t spoil anything for me. Haleb in my opinion, is the best ship on this show, but I think towards the early seasons I used to ship Ezria more but when Caleb showed up with his long hair, I died. And therefore, they became my favourite ship. I remember, I put watching the show on break after Caleb left to do his own show is either season 3 or 4, I don’t remember exactly. But yeah, these two are pretty cute together and I hope it stays that way.


3. Stydia: Stiles Stilinksi and Lydia Martin from Teen Wolf (TV)

Okay, again, probably in my top 7. So, the thing with Stydia is that they dragged it out for so long that the anticipation killed me. But I love them still so much. And Dylan O’Brian is just on a different level of awesomeness (and cuteness). And Lydia, even though she used to annoy me at first, and Teen Wolf is probably not my favourite TV show, but it’s still good, and Lydia’s character started to grow on me and I need to catch up on Season 6, (don’t judge me guys, the past few moths for me have been really busy) and I just recently started to watch this show, like maybe two years ago, but still, love love love.


4. Linctavia: Lincoln and Octavia Blake from The 100 (TV)

Okay, so another The 100 ship, but oh my lord I scream every time someone mentions them! They are so adorably cute and the flyest of power couples who don’t give a damn about what people think. And every time I think of Lincoln, I just might well cry because he didn’t deserve what he got. Fucking Pike. I’m glad Octavia killed him. And the song to which Lincoln dies to, and the one where Octavia’s scream and cries are kinda muffled, it’s called Cloud by Elias, and it’s in my playlist and then I have a mini breakdown when it comes on and think of Lincoln falling on his knees in the tiny puddle and Octavia and I just cry a little more on the inside. Anyway, probably the best couple to ever exist on the show and maybe even ever in this whole damn world. They were so fucking badass together, I loved every minute of it.


5. Sciles: Scott McCall and Stiles Stilinski from Teen Wolf (TV)

Okay, so this is like my favourite BROTP of all eternity. I just think that their relationship is so cute and how much they care about each other, and the hug in season 3 is my everything, ahhh, I just love them so much it hurts. And throughout the show we can see their friendship grow even though they have been friends since they were little. Damn, I wish I had a friendship like that. 


6. Chair: Charles “Chuck” Bass and Blair Waldorf from Gossip Girl (TV)

Ahhh, Blair and Chuck, Chuck and Blair! I don’t think anyone will ever know how happy I was when the endgame for their endgame actually happened. Honestly, I was rooting for them since Blair’s birthday episode in the first season, even when everyone was after Nate and Blair, but no, not gonna happen. I just thought that Nate was very innocent and nice for Blair. Blair needed someone like Chuck and I don’t think anyone ever loved anyone else as much as Chuck loves Blair. I love them, they are so perfect for each other, with their games. I wish I had a Chuck. Blair’s lucky. Haha.

When Jainan arrived on Iskat to represent his home planet in a diplomatic marriage to Imperial Prince Taam, he was naïve enough to hope the match would work. Taam knew better. Five years later, his confidence shattered, Jainan is released when Taam dies in an accident, only to be faced with another marriage to help salvage his treaty. Jainan understands how the real world works now; but Prince Kiem - the cheerful, scandal-prone darling of the Iskat celebrity magazines - keeps breaking all the rules he’s learned.

Okay, okay, first you all need to LOOK AT THOSE TAGS.

So this story by @avoliot is complete at over 110k words, and it is going to be updated twice a week (literally as fast as I can beta it), and I am pretty sure that 110k words of well-written slow-burn arranged marriage pining in space is relevant to basically everyone’s interests. 

I seriously cannot rec it hard enough. I love it. I love Kiem and his dumb puppy dog extrovert face and idiot scrapes (and his perfect cheekbones and his killer smile, literally my main beta contribution to this story was ‘mention how hot kiem is more often please’.) I love Jainan, by which I mean I cry over him constantly and need him to be happy. I love every character, the summary doesn’t even mention BEL, my new girlfriend, please can she come and organise my life.

Also with my secret insider knowledge I can inform you all that this story will eventually contain both huddling for warmth and space pirates. Go and read it now!

anonymous asked:

Where can I find your friend Sam's book? I found her page and its synopsis, but not where I can read it.

That’s because it’s not published yet! She recently completed the beta process. If you join her mailing list, you’ll get updates regarding its completion. 

I don’t know how much I’m allowed to say, but if you enjoy:

- Beautiful world building

- Healthy relationships

- Diverse, multi-dimensional characters

- and unique takes on fantasy

You’ll dig her book. Very original, very immersive, with a likable, CONFIDENT female lead. And a love interest who is sweet and doesn’t sexually assault people!

The fact that I even have to mention that as a selling point wounds me…

thegirlinyocloset25  asked:

I have recently seen some fancast of Twilight with POC, how do you think twilight would have been with more diversity? Whether it was with casting or some of the characters facing struggles with medical conditions or learning disabilities? How do you think that would have played out? Btw: I love your blog. 😄

I think more representation is great, and I think it’s also important to point out this isn’t a SM-only problem but a problem in media generally. While there’s a lot about her use of a real tribe that is problematic, not to mention the trope of the wild/magical American Indian, the fact that Jacob, a native American who lives on a reservation, is a major character, a love interest, a modern character, and in New Moon at least a real, fleshed out, warm person is notable. The fact that the actors cast as the Quileute characters in the movie were of Native American or First Nations descent is also pretty cool in an industry that all too often white-washes things (also casting Laurent as black. Edi Gathegi had a ready line if people complained that the book described Laurent as ‘olive-skinned:’ “There are black olives.”) 

I do think some of the fancasts and re-imaginings could be tricky to square with certain backstories, or at least change their meaning in significant ways. Jasper’s, in particular, is by the nature of the war he fought in linked to race, Carlisle’s to a particular religion. But one can always re-write the backstories to reflect the changes made in more diverse headcanons or fancasts if necessary, and so many of the characters, especially outside of Bella’s immediate orbit, are so thinly-sketched you can imagine them virtually however you want without stepping on canon at all. 

As to how a different, more diverse cast would change the story, it’s hard to say without specifics nailed down. Bella with a medical condition or physical impairment of some kind might add another layer to her desire to become a vampire and be made immortal and “perfect.” The Cullens being a mutli-racial family in a small, rural town might be an additional source of gossip. A gay or lesbian romance would perhaps change how the couple was perceived by others in the story. But I think the larger themes–about love, and choice and family–are universal and the human/vampire love story, and friendship/found-family themes can play out in the same broad strokes even if aspects of the characters’ race, gender, orientation etc are changed. 

Games

So I recently started Samurai love ballad: party and I have to say, SO ADDICTED OH DEAR LORD! xD My good friend has been making me a fan of it’s characters for ages, so when I finally picked it up, as you can expect, I went crazy xD

Personally what I fell in love with instantly was the music and artwork. I loved how the music changed with the mood, which just enhanced the experience. Not to mention the MC actually having a mind of her own, which is usually not the case and honestly a let down in most otomes. She refreshingly has a great personality and a strong mind. I was hocked as soon as I finished the prologue. So if you are a fan of historical stories and romances. This game is definitely recommended from my end. And as a bonus the men are gorgeous as well haha(we all know most of you were wondering that lol). So ya, that’s what I am up to these days apart from other things. If anyone of you starts the game, do let me know how you found it. I am personally currently playing Masamune’s route and DAGNAMMIT KAWAI POTATOS STAPH. *ahem* Anyways, until next time peeps! Have fun!

                                   (My two potatos in all their glory)

dr-gothtastic  asked:

Um, top 5 royai head canons??

Ink, you know the way to my heart <3

  1. Roy doesn’t realize he’s in love with Riza until after Bradley takes her from his command. @stupidsexymustang​ wrote a gorgeous fic about that too! 
  2. This is more suited to the anime canon since they don’t share a hospital room in the manga, but I strongly believe they confessed their feelings one of those nights they spent alone together. (And hey, I’ve written some royai hospital fics like the steaming garbage can that I am.) 
  3. This is a fairly widespread headcanon, but I think the reason Riza only has portions of her array burned instead of it being completely disfigured like she’d wanted was because Roy couldn’t stand how much pain she was in. And this is totally viable for a platonic headcanon as well. 
  4. I don’t think they ever end up dating because of the military, but I headcanon that they make a promise to emotionally devote themselves to each other and just don’t ever end up marrying other people.
  5. This one is also a popular headcanon and I know @the-flame-and-hawks-eye​ mentioned it recently, but I love the idea of them having each other’s dog tags ;-;

ask me my “top 5/top 10″ anything <3

what do you mean robin lies?? :o i'm new to the fandom i haven't seen this

There’s…so much lol.

“Ed and Oswald will come to an understanding.” (around 3x14) Ed shot Oswald off of a dock, and Oswald returned for revenge.

“Oswald doesn’t really/truly love Ed.” It’s been stated numerous times by the cast that he does, even still, and Robin recently mentioned in response to a question about Oswald not being over Ed; “It’s never over in Gotham.”

“Oswald will not go down the stereotypical gay character path of taking revenge on Ed.” Oswald’s literal first words when he woke up were “I have someone I need to kill.”

(Not word for word, as of late I haven’t been watching his interviews cause I don’t trust what he says) “Ivy will teach him so much, has been such an important role in his life, person that teaches Oswald to be better.” Oswald was cruel to her, she drank a bunch of potions in retaliation, and bolted. There is no sentimental or in depth significance to their relationship, the type Robin was talking up for so long. not to mention he had the comment about how they weren’t ””necessarily romantic”” which shouldn’t even have to be stated.

“Nygmobblepot lovers will love this episode.” It was either in relation to 3x19 or 3x20 but neither episode was hopeful for nygmobblepot. Especially if it was 3x20.

“Ed and Oswald’s relationship goes in a surprising direction. Something Oswald doesn’t expect.” but then Robin says days later. “They will go forward as enemies.” this is counter-acted by Cory’s statements that they are disposing of the revenge plot, and will come back together in later episodes, but vanish from each other’s lives for a while. 

There is no specific quote but he’s recently been very misleading about Oswald’s relationship with Sofia, making romantic insinuations, which I really personally think he should tone down a little, because he isn’t going to be romantically involved with her. Because as Robin’s stated before (after months of not admitting it) “Oswald is gay.”

“They’ll go forward as enemies.” I don’t know what show Robin is watching, but Ben, Cory, and a lot of others have been saying the complete opposite. 


Basically he could tell me out front Nygmobblepot is going to kiss and I wouldn’t believe it until I saw it for myself. He’s a very sweet guy, and it’s true that a lot of actors lie or exaggerate to stretch the truth or hide the truth, but this is just…funny. 

I’ve been wanting to make this for awhile but with work and then Hurricane Irma, well, life has left me pretty busy as of late! I’ve been writing Emma since February 2015 back on my old blog. I never imagined I would move from being an admin for a roleplay group to joining the independent roleplay community. It’s been a lot of fun to get better at writing and get to know Emma a bit more by writing several different scenarios with various people. I also never imagined creating some lasting friendships with people, calling them family as we bonded over the show and so much more. 

This bias list to thank the people I have recently followed back and to write a few words of encouragement to those I have grown close to over the past 2+ years. To my 235 followers, thank you so much for following me, for liking my portrayal of a character I’ve loved since the beginning.
