here's another one of my favourites i did

Viktor's Pauses

Okay, this is a break from my usual tough love on Viktor. This time, I’d like to talk about something Viktor does that makes me really, really happy and proud of him.

We see how kind Viktor is to Yuuri. He is thoughtful and careful with him in a way that appears so soft and warm and everything that made us fall in love with them. Somehow, Viktor just seems to do and say the right things. Not all the time, of course, and he has had his slips like what we saw at the Cup of China, but this is because Viktor is still learning. Most of the time though, he seems to have the right words to say.

The best part for me though is HOW Viktor says these things - more specifically, how he comes up with them. It is not as if the responses come naturally, or are top of mind. He had to learn them, because Viktor definitely thought about other things before the things that he does say out loud. How do we know?

He pauses.

For example, in episode 3, Yuuri (and Yurio) struggle with their respective programs. Yuuri, at his wits end, suddenly comes up with the crazy, “That’s it! Katsudon!”

Now look at what happens next:

There must have been a dozen things that passed through dear Viktor’s mind. Remember, he didn’t know that Yuuri forgot everything that happened at the banquet. He didn’t know that Yuuri didn’t know about his own Eros potential. Viktor’s thoughts possibly ranged from “Excuse me?” to “What the actual fuck,” but he does not say these things. Instead, he pauses.

What do pauses even mean? A pause means a person is thinking. Viktor thinks about what he will say to Yuuri. Granted, Viktor does not have the record of being the most tactful person on Earth. We have seen him deliver brutal truths with that heart-shaped smile of his, but that only makes it even more precious that he makes these later considerations for Yuuri.

Viktor did not start off being this considerate. You know when this kindness started? When Yuuri first ran away to skate away his anxiety since Viktor came, and then more and more as Viktor learned that Yuuri was apparently shy and more delicate than Viktor initially thought him to be.

So back at the dinner table, of course we know that what Viktor says instead of, you know, Yurio’s more sensible, “Seriously?” is:

Viktor’s first careful step!

Fast forward to Hot Springs on Ice. Yuuri panics when it is his turn, but eventually, comes up with another gem:

Viktor pauses a bit.

He’s still not used to this type of lines from Yuuri. In the end though, his answer to Yuuri is:

The beauty of what Viktor does is that it’s a considerate way of acting neutral while he tries to understand how this beautifully confusing creature he sort of fell a little in love with at the Sochi banquet ticks. At the same time, whether he meant to or not, he says things that Yuuri seems to need, as proven by the way Yuuri blushes every time Viktor says something that tells him that Viktor is on his side. Viktor is very careful with Yuuri, and what I love about it is that it shows to us that Viktor still wants to stay and get to know this person even though he is not who Viktor thought he was.

Episode 4, as we know, is that wonderful, wonderful episode that spanned the months of Yuuri’s training, during which we are somehow told that Yuuri and Viktor grew closer and got to know one another better. The next Viktor-pause is not so much a consideration for Yuuri as much as it is proof that Viktor picked up the habit of thinking before he speaks around Yuuri, and somehow finding the right words to say within those brief pauses.

The beauty of the pause here is that it seems to be a tentative one. The theme is love? Why did it become love, now when I am working on him with this? Am I somehow making progress with this person? Viktor pauses for his own sake this time, because Yuuri’s theme caught him off-guard.

But after all this time, Viktor is better with Yuuri, and his response is:

He reacts positively to Yuuri and supports his decisions. He has learned to relate with Yuuri better, and continues to be kind to him. He knows how to say yes to Yuuri’s decisions in the best way possible.

Here is another of my favourite scenes, purely because of Viktor’s word choices.

“Perfect” and “the best theme” – Viktor’s words are encouraging and uplifting, and I can perfectly imagine how they can affect Yuuri and motivate him.

Episode 5 is yet another gift of an episode where, for the first time, we hear Viktor think. And boy, he thinks a lot, and now we know that he does think a lot before doing and saying things in regards to Yuuri. We know he does not always agree with his student:

Yet at the end of the day, still makes the conscious decision to accept and support him.

We can see how this endeared Viktor to Yuuri. I mean look at the boy’s face in that last frame. He’s so happy, he actually cried. Viktor’s constant affirmation helped Yuuri grow and be more confident in himself. While I do believe that Viktor is naturally warm and a very kind person deep down, and while providing Yuuri this kind of positive regard is not contradictory to his personality, it’s wonderful to think that he still had to learn and develop these things in himself as well.

Now, of course Viktor isn’t perfect. He slipped in episode 7 and said the wrong thing. But, as Yakov said, Viktor still had a lot to learn, but it’s heartening to see him keep at it, isn’t it?

Lol, he even does this silent pause thing during their engagement. There was a good pause there, but then again maybe it was just shock. He’s been quiet even during the time that they bought the rings, and pretty much just followed Yuuri in a daze (I assume) up to the last moment. He doesn’t even talk until Yuuri prompts him.

Viktor still says something good, though - probably the best that could be said given the circumstances and given what Yuuri said. He has also grown quite a lot. Somewhere along the way, he learned to speak Yuuri’s language, and it is just a beautiful thing to watch.

forgotten-pumpkinpie  asked:

Hello!! I'm looking for a few super fluffy, cute enough to make you gag but still want more AUs that take place in a coffee shop, library, or book store!! Please and thank you :)

i think i can help you with that!

this post is going to be a bit long so i’ll divide it into two parts :)

library/bookstore aus

coffee shop aus

  • i tell myself that i come here because of the coffee but really it’s just because of the barista that works here every morning
    • heck, i don’t even like coffee
  • by god this is the most awful cup of coffee i’ve ever had but you looked so pleased with yourself when you handed it to me and now i don’t have the heart to throw it away
    • so yes, i am going to down this entire coffee and i am going to like it
  • you come in here practically every day and we chat quite a lot but i feel awful because i still can’t remember your name yet i can remember your order off by heart
    • i change my name everyday because it’s adorable whenever you ask for my name and it’s not what you expected you have a little look of surprise mixed with disappointment and it’s the best thing i’ve ever seen.
  • we’re both on our computers doing work and i hadn’t really taken any notice of you until you randomly airdropped a document onto my computer saying; ‘can i buy you a coffee sometime?’
  • i was having a really bad day and my patience was practically non-existent at this point, unfortunately you messing up my order was the final thing to make me snap. 
    • and yes, i did just start crying in the middle of an overcrowded coffee shop. 
      • “here, let me get you another coffee and we can talk about it if you want.”
        “…okay.”
  • i keep putting cheesy pick-up lines on your cups but i don’t think you realise because you’ve never said anything back, that was until one day i put my phone number on your cup and i actually got a text from you later that day. 
  • you were my favourite barista at the coffee shop and we’d always talk on your shift, you sometimes mentioned in passing how if we talked to much your boss would fire you - of course, you said it in such a joking way that i assumed it was just casual humour. that was until when i arrived one morning and saw you weren’t there, instead you were waiting for me in the coffee shop but not as a barista, as a customer.
    • “i got you fired! i’m so so sorry! how can i repay you?”
      “seriously, don’t worry about it. i never liked this job that much anyway.”
      “… can i at least buy you a coffee?”
  • instead of going out for dinner, we go out for coffee instead
  • you come in at least two times a day and it’s getting a bit worrying, you seem so on edge all the time and the amount of caffeine you take in can’t be healthy. 
    • i changed your order and gave you decaffeinated coffee instead
      • i looked over at you when i tasted my coffee as if to say; “why?” but you just smiled sincerely and i feel as if my heart just exploded 
  • did you seriously just order tea… at a coffee shop
  • im the new barista and you’re my co-worker, you’re the best barista in the shop and i didn’t believe it until i tasted your coffee and holy shit, how is this humanely possible?????? teach me your ways !!
  • ive never been to a starbucks before and i have no idea what any of this means and the people behind me are getting kinda annoyed, could you help me out??
    • “that makes no sense, ‘venti’ means twenty in italian not large”
      “i’ve been working here for five years and i think about this everyday don’t worry.”

Malec Fic Rec (part 2)

Ok so on the back of my last post I’ve spent the day remembering all the fics I’ve missed out and quite frankly that won’t do…So did I mention I’m weak…I have to do some more (and there will be some more popular ones in here because I can’t resist)

Bibliophile - Dorkberto (rating T) 3631 words Complete

@dorkberto

what can I say apart from this fic is lovely. Featuring Alec the love sick librarian  and a very glittery Magnus. Seriously great writing and another smile all the way through fic


So Bright - Lemonoclefox (rating G) 17504 words complete

@lemonoclefox

Hands down this is probably one of my favourite fake dating fics (sort of). All set within the shadow hunters world but with an alternative timeline.


Fall Without Wings - Vulturemonem (rating M) 19/? WIP

@notcrypticbutcoy 

Ok so Im not normally a fan of wing fics but this is perfection. The attention to detail here is off the charts to the extent that each chapter is named after a different bird (which makes me ridiculously happy). When Alec’s life is saved by the high warlock of Brooklyn, a known enemy of the clave, his whole world view is brought into doubt…


Fool’s Rush In - Maleciseverything (rating M) 85198 words complete

What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas right? Well not if you end up married to a complete stranger…this story is a delight, the perfect mix of humour, angst and fluff…basically all you would expect from this super talented writer.

Oh and check out the WIP Take me To Church…so good


Addicted to You - Alxsteele (rating M) 78701 words Complete

@imawriteriwrite

No strings sex without feelings..well that always works out well doesn’t it? This is great, expect pinning, angst and ultimately the happy ending we all need.


Bright Lights, Small Town - Lecrit (rating E) 104298 words complete

@lecrit

Ok I know..you’ve probably heard of this fic before and I’m breaking my own rules but seriously how can you do a Malec fic rec without including something by the wonderful Lecrit.

Seriously all their fics are amazing but this one holds a special place in my heart because not only is it super lovely but it has such beautiful description of grief and finding your place in the world. Also Magnus’ dog’s names…:-)


Never Stand Between Two Mirrors - Oncethrown (rating M) 51758 words complete

@oncethrown

I know, I know it’s another classic…did I mention I’m weak…but seriously who can resist alt!Alec being thrown through a portal into the institute…I mean Im only human come on…If for whatever reason you haven’t read this, what are you waiting for DO IT NOW


Trust - MuscleMemory (rating M) 995 words complete

@sfjessii

Fluff and angst you say…don’t worry I got you covered..this is the perfect little drabble for you and a wonderful exploration of Alec’s insecurities.

Heck just read all the dribbles in the You Call and I respond, The Sparrow and The Song series…oh and everything else as well…


Lunch Break - damnyoudaddario (rating T) 2909 words complete

@damnyoudaddario

This is the perfect little smut/comedy fic. The dynamic between Alec and Magnus is just spot on and lets be honest this is pretty much exactly what we’d expect if the pair of them were caught in a boring Clave meeting together.


Signatures - Insieme (not rated) 3185 words complete

@insiemee

Ok so to end with a fluffy college AU fic because who doesn’t want that. This is so cute and let’s be honest if Magnus was in college we know he would totally use glittery pens to take notes.


No doubt I’ve missed other fics I love but as I have all the organisational skills of a highly disorganised bluebottle (Not that Im judging bluebottles mind you…) that will have to do for now….hey you know as well as I do I’ll be back with more recs soonish, probably with the excuse that I’m an idiot for not adding them before…

After a long long pause I am finally motivated to draw again<3

I wanted to try out different colouring and shading techniques I found while watching speedpaints the whole winter long

And while I’ve been listening to a lot of welcome to night vale lately I felt inspired to do some fanart of my favourite episode(s) “The Sandstorm A & B”

Also decided to change my signature because I never really liked my old one

hey so while we’re all out here supporting nu’est’s music while minhyun is separated from them, please remember sungwoon is in the exact same position. he got into the final 11 and was separated from his (and taehyun’s, you know the iconic choreographer of the shape of you stage) group called hotshot. so please support their music alongside nu’est so both groups can finally find success even though they’ve both been separated from a member (both important vocal members too)

so yeah heres some links to hotshot’s mvs but please support sungwoon, taehyun and the rest of hotshot because their future is extremely unclear right now

and while you’re at it, they did a whole bunch of youtube collab videos that r always fun to watch and it helps u get to know them more

There was something that whispered in the quiet, Jimin had recalled. A wistful tone that called out his name, airy, light. In the solitude of his bedroom, dark and desolate, he had made up his mind that the voice was something he was not very fond of. It held something akin to hope.

“Jimin?” It called. “I told you, didn’t I? That I would love you forever?”

Yes, Jimin thought. You did.

And the voice was back, closer now. Murmuring quietly into his ear, tickling the cusp of his ear; like a bird’s song. “So why did you leave me?”

I don’t know, Taehyung.

I don’t know.

There are 82 letters in here, and they’re all addressed to you. I wrote them all this summer. One a day, but I never sent them because I was afraid. I was afraid of getting my heart broken again, like before. ‘Cause you hurt me so bad and… I was afraid to be vulnerable. And I was afraid of you and the way that you make me feel. And I know that doesn’t matter now after what I did, but I just thought that you should know. This is how I spent my summer Luke, wanting you… I was just too scared to admit it. I love you.
                                                          I love you too, pretty girl.

Miss T’s 450+ Followers Forever

Hello everyone! Believe it or not, but this blog now has over 450 followers. I still cannot really believe it myself, and am positively flabbergasted. So I believe it is about time that I show some gratitude. I am gratefull for each and every single follower on this blog. However there are of course a few special people I wanna mention.

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them Fandom

@loveisforchildren-percivalgraves: Mados is one of the first Graves I rped with. Your Graves, my dear, is amazing. I have said it time and time again, and I will say it time and time again: Your Graves portrayal is perfection. I absolutely love the story line we are having! I love, how Graves’ wits, sarcasm, humor and snarky attitude drive Gellert up a wall. I love the hate/love dynamic they have. I absolutely adore you, my friend, and every time you reply, you brighten my day.

@allforthegreatergood: Allgoody, who would have guessed that you are the reason I actually started to ship Grindelcest? Your Grindelwald is a wonderfull fuel to mine, and he seems to be so much more composed and calm then my crazy weirdo. Really, I believe Gellert needs your Grindelwald to balance him. I love our small and long roleplays, I love how we have moments where we just break the fourth wall out of nowhere. Our rps go from drama to comedy, and I love that!

@theamericanjewitch: Tina and Gellert in a soulmate au? Well, we made it work, and I am still amazed that we did so. Your Tina is amazingly written, authentic, and you yourself are a wonderfull person, Amihex. I really enjoy all our interactions, and I love how Tina can actually stand her ground around Grindelwald. That’s pretty amazing. She is such a though lady, and I love it.

@amagizoologistscase: You are one of the best Newt roleplayers there is. Your Newt is just adorable and sweet. I really enjoy the vampire au we are having. And I love how there is this slight romance going on between Grindelwald and Newt. It is adorable. And you are lovely too.

@teapotauror: You were the first one, who tried out a dark!Tina AU, and we keep working on it. Our replies are a bit smaller, but I love them. Your Tina really is a sweetheart. She may work for Grindelwald, but you can still see she has her morals, which is great. I love, how Gellert is trying to wrapp her around his fingers, and I am curious to see as to how this is gonna develop.

@asksmuttytheseus: One of my german followers and the person, where we both are like Who needs a plot??? Joking aside, I absolutely love you and the way you are portraying Theseus. I think, you are right when you say Theseus is pushing himself, while Gellert is just a douchebag. It is a very funny dynamic. What I also find good: The openness you have while writing makes this crackish plots really funny and enjoyable to write. I used to have problems with writing smutt, but I never have problems when it comes to you.

@deathlesshallows: You and I may only follow each other for a few weeks, days, but you have left an enormous impression on me! Your Grindelwald completes Gellert in another way then allgoody’s does. The entire dynamic is more like a servant and his master. Basically two people, plotting the end of the world. That is very great to do. Your writing style is A+, and you are a lovely person to talk to.

People I adore in this fandom and wanna have more threads with

@nxwtonscamandxr, @percival-grave-s, @wasitopened, @paradoxicalphoeonix, @piousboy, @nootnootandthesaurusscamander, @rolcplaycr, @thegravemistergraves

Harry Potter Fandom

@bittenchildremus: I think, I should actually mention you first, Bitty. You were one of the first people that approached me when I took Gellert as my muse. You ‘introduced’ me to Mados. You helped me to get a feel for Gellert, and you made many awesome edits for me (like the one on the top of this post). You are a wonderfull person to talk to and plot with. I adore all your OCs you create on @fireofmanyhearts, with my personal favourites being Magnus and Ethan. I love how you portray Remus, and I really enjoy the AU we are having with him being his evil helper.

@riddlemostpowerful: Grace, your Tom Riddle is gold! I absolutely love how you portray him. Not only do you have him be a powerhungry, young man, but you also add a few small quirks, which turn him into a real human. Because of you, I shop Riddlewald so hard! I love the dynamic between the mentor and the student. I love how Tom turns into a blushing, little idiot whenever something odd happens. I love plotting with you and talking with you. Your Tom Riddle and you yourself are really close to my heart.

@tobelovedistobedestroyed-albus: Okay, Mados, let’s face it. I am cheating here a bit. I don’t care, I have to give your Albus a seperate mentioning: He is perfect! He and Gellert play off in such a lovely way. There is always an air of melancholie around them, and it is breaking my heart, which is good. I love how we find ways to make headcanons specifically for this pair. It brings these two lovers and friends so much alive.

@askyoungdumbledore: We both know, it took some time for us to start roleplaying. You are actually my first Albus, and I absolutely love this exchange student thing we have. It is really well-thought out, and it allows us to explore something unexpected.

@siiriusblxck: We may be slow with our roleplay, but I love you nonetheless. I really enjoy the dynamic we settled with. Having Sirius being stripped of his will, is a very drastic move, but I love this vulnerability. I am actually glad that I could dare this with you, since the power dynamic in our rps towards Sirius is bad for him. Like really badly. All in all, I really enjoy reading all your threads, and I am very glad that I could approach you.

@jazzandmagic: Bella, you are one of my oldest and longest roleplayers. I know, we actually rped in another fandom, but I still hope that we find a way to rp on here as well. All in all, you have a lovely Hermione, and she is very enjoyable. I also enjoy chatting with you.

People I adore in this fandom and wanna have more threads with:

@she–knows-it-all, @pxtionmaster, @rxgulussblxck, @areyouinthebeyond, @princelydoe,​

Mixed Blogs aka all the other Fandoms and Personal Blogs I have things to say about

@mylittlecuriosityrp: Okay, let’s face it: Everybody who followed me on @misstantabis knows your name had to pop up eventually. Ace, what can I say to you that I have not yet said before? You are the first blog, that ever followed me. You are the person, that helped me the most in many, many ways: When it came to writing, when it came to learn how the Tumblr community works. You are the person I had the most heartships and troubles with. We have known each other for a year, I think, and we grew a lot because of this. You are one of my closest friends on her, my greatest inspiration and idol, and I am immensely gratefull to have you. The way you write all your horses is lovely, and I am so glad that after all our countless story lines we still have something to continue. I look forwards to see what will come in the future. <3

@royal-lotus-fire: Everybody needs a person, which makes them smile from time to time. Lotus, you are that person for me. Your randomness and your sweetness brightens my day. We may no longer roleplay as much as we used to, but I still love all the stuff you tagg me in, all the random asks you send me. You are my ray of sunshine. :)

@themadandthebroken: I know it has been quite around us, but be assured I have not forgotten you. I absolutely loved and still do each and every roleplay we are having. I love your muses, and I love how we plot soulcrushing angst to ruin our ships.

@mr-henry-lascelles: You were the blog that introduced me properly to Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell, and I love you for that. Not only did you gave me a great, small fandom, but you also created one of the greatest AUs with me and my favourite, platonic ship up date. Seriously, nothing beats Olalla and Lascelles, plotting crazy schemes to avoid Captain Dance, and embarass him nonstopp. XD

@funkzpiel: I theoretically could have also placed you under the Fantastic Beast section, however I chose to sort you here since you are a personal blog. Funky, you are another one of my big writing inspirations. You encouraged me to actually write a ton of what I jokingly call my garbage stories (since it is smutt with little plott). I love to talk with you, and I really hope that our friendship can grow.

Other blogs I love seeing on my dash:

@ohveda, @wolfinthethorns, @fantastic-beasts-smut, @nasturtian, @thegaypumpingthroughyourveins, @mischiefandnightmares, @venerablehypocrite

Blogs I no longer interact with, but whom I connect with very fond memories:

I drew another Starfire redesign based on an older design I did and I’m weirdly proud of it despite it being a sketch so up it goes here!

Starfire is one of my favourite DC characters ever so I can only hope they do something interesting with her nowadays - besides Teen Titans: Earth One, which is already interesting enough imo, but I want more. Maybe something animated even.

Hope you all have a great summer!

The Valley of Fear

I know we’re technically still on hiatus, but I thought I’d write up my answer already while I have the time and so I won’t forget to do it later on. 

So this gave me an excuse to use my 1931 copy which was amazing (book nerd alert!). The comments will be put forward in the usual manner ;)

Day 6: Moon

| 30 Day Marker Challenge | Tsukishima Kei | Karasuno | Haikyuu!! |

6th day of my challenge is coming back to Haikyuu!! My another favourite character (other one being Akaashi) Tsukishima Kei AKA Salt Queen
I did some sketches with him, (maybe I will post them in some kind of sketch compilation soon) but I also wanted to something ‘proper’. I really like that his name means ‘Moon Island’ and to be honest Im sucker for this kind of stuff so here you go!

Other 30 day marker challenge pieces are HERE

lyrics+love notes

As requested by two lovely anons, here’s a rundown of some of my favourite lyrics that I feel may have been messages Peter and Carl sent to one another through song while apart. Based on Carl’s quote: “I listened to everything. He hid love messages for me in them. We both did that”. I already covered lyrics in demos that I feel may refer to their relationship, here: xxxx. As always, this is just my opinion. I’ve done ten songs at length, I’ll do more later on, as there is a mountain of material. My thoughts after the cut.

My Favourite Game

It’s so broad, isn’t, it, something like this? A favourite game might be the best performance you remember (8-1 Nottingham Forest), or the first time you ever watched your team live (1-0 Crystal Palace), or something of such importance it still gets talked about today (Ryan Giggs’s chest sorry, 2-1 Arsenal). I think of petty games like 3-0 Liverpool and 4-2 City. I even think of the guaranteed-a-mention-in-almost-every-match 0-4 MK Dons which, while perhaps not my favourite, was certainly one of the most formative in teaching me that Jonny Evans getting his arse handed to him was still something I would wake up at 3am to watch. And that, regardless, I’d do it all again the same time next week.

I’m someone who sets a lot of store by history. (You’d expect that from a history student.) I suppose that’s one of the reasons I fell in love with United in the first place; the vast landscape of moments that we have reason to be proud of. The lore that every United fan seems to know, like magic, the moment they become one. Everyone says that United live in the past. If that is true I don’t begrudge them, for what a past to live in. When I got off the tram in Manchester on the fourteenth of June two years ago and saw the LEGENDS ARE BACK banners hanging outside Old Trafford it was this that confronted me. I was struck, suddenly, by the enormity of what I was going to watch: Yorke and Cole playing together again! The treble-winning back line of Stam and Johnsen (and the wrong Neville)! Cult favourites no one but a United fan would know in van der Gouw and Blomqvist! 

And. Of course.

Memories of Summer

Another older photo set here, made a bit of a mess with the finishing powder and over did the bronzer but it still remains one of my favourites. I think it might have something to do with the final photo, I was just pulling my hair out of my eye’s I took it but I really liked the result. I loved this wig too but it’s died a death, my current wig is on it’s last legs too so I’m thinking I might try another dirty blonde look again. I’ve not worn these heels with anything in ages too, I really need put them together with something. Ha lot of love in this photo set!

Here are all my favourite taylorswift Blank Space’s video’s favorite outfits ! I hope you’ll like them and warm you up, I drew each of them with love :)

I was really happy to draw these, after being so obsessed with that video (like I’ve rarely been before with any other one). I tried to check the stylist’s name but couldn’it find it - do you know who did the Blank Space styling ? If you do please tell me :)

Now I’ve got to find another obsession.

Hey! ^_^

Here is another new song from Art angels called SCREAM ft. Aristophanes who, if you don’t know, is a really fucking talented Taiwanese artist and one of my favourite musicians.  This is the first track I’ve released that I produced where I am not the lead vocalist (although I did the screaming), so I’m bouncing off the walls a bit haha.  and just wanna say thanks to Aristophanes for taking a chance on me and being so incredible.  I’ll post her lyrics next because they are mind-blowing.  

and thanks so much to all the fans for coming out to the shows and being so so nice about Flesh.  This has been one of the happiest and most exciting weeks of my life <3 <3 <3

thanks pan xxxxx
