hope in the story

the posture theory

for @drownedpoet​ and the two anons who asked

  • neil has great posture
  • since he’s shorter than most adults, standing and sitting up straight always gave him a better vantage point to survey areas when he was on the run
  • it also helped when he was younger and had to appear older 
    • so people would stop asking so many questions about why “such a nice young boy was doing things he shouldn’t be"
    • it made things like buying cigarettes, driving, and carrying a gun so much simpler when he wasn’t being interrogated every five minutes
  • breathing was much easier as well in the bulletproof vests he always wore
    • wearing kevlar is a lot like wearing a chest binder, it’s restrictive and makes breathing a pain in the ass
    • sitting up straight was at least a partial solution to this problem
  • not to mention it gave him an intimidating look that kept people at a healthy distance and made sure he wasn’t bothered
  • it also made it easier to jump into a fighting stance in a seconds notice if necessary
  • sleeping back to back with his mother reinforced the habit 
    • neither of them could sleep if there was even the smallest gap between their bodies
    • life on the run from people constantly trying to kill you makes you rightfully cautious and a little bit paranoid, so it’s nice to have the grounding weight of someone you trust at your back
  • he also used to be a dancer, but that’s another au/headcanon
  • andrew, on the other hand, has terrible posture
  • his childhood was spent slouching down trying to disappear and look like less of a target
  • he would sleep curled into himself with his back against the wall so he would be harder to grab
    • it also made it harder for drake to take his clothes off
  • hiding was easier as well
    • getting used to being tucked into himself made squeezing into tight spaces for up to a couple of hours at a time to avoid drake much more comfortable
  • slipping away from being held is about 90% easier when you’re slouched as it allows for quicker movement
    • this didn’t take andrew more than twice to learn
  • andrew never really saw the point of good posture when his body never really belonged to him anyway
    • this is his depression talking, but he doesn’t care
  • i mean what’s the point of worrying about posture when you don’t plan on living long enough to be affected by it?

I MADE THIS AS A THANK YOU!! WE REACHED 100 FOLLOWERS! THANK YOU MUCH FOR YOUR SUPPORT! I hope we get bigger and bigger♡

The story behind this drawing is a hc on my mind where the triplets made a flower crown for Yurio (bcs they love him)  so he could honor his name being a true Russian Fairy. He wouldn’t admit it, but he was really happy.

This is also dedicated to my friend Clair ( @hoemoghost ) who supported me all this time ♡

I hope one day someone treats you just like you treated me, and I hope that when you find yourself surrounded by the pieces of your heart shattered on the floor they simply look at you with that pitiful look in their eyes, and simply tell you they’re sorry. Maybe then will you understand that those words fix nothing at all, especially when the person who pronounces them has nothing but condescension in their voice and looks at you like you’re a confused child to whom they’re trying to explain why they don’t wanna play with him anymore
—  Maybe then will you understand how I felt

My gift to @a-whole-lasagna for the @frukgiftexchange 2017! One of your wishes was “A Victorian or Edwardian-era setting”, so I went with Victorian (and their wonderful clothes~). I hope you’ll like it and that you had fun during the Holidays! (ノ^ω^)ノ♥ ゜・。。・

Now the fanfic~


Title: Je t'aime

Pairing: FrUk

Summary: After accompanying his mother to the opera and meeting a mysterious man with the looks of an angel, Arthur could not take that smooth and melodic voice out of his head. Human AU. Victorian setting.

———

London, England, 14 May 1853…

It was a cold and rainy evening when Arthur Kirkland found himself standing in front of Theatre Royal. It had taken all of his mother’s patience to convince him to change into his best clothes and accompany her to the opera. As the younger brother, it was his duty to take care of the house and look after his mother while his brothers were out of town taking care of the family’s business. After his father had passed away the previous year, Arthur and his older brothers had made a vow to work hard and make their mother happy again.

A/N: I am so so so sorry this has taken me so long to publish! I have been crazy busy and I couldn’t get this to a place I was happy with and have been experiencing insane writers’ block. I hope this anon is still following my blog and sees this story, but if not, I completely understand. I’ve been trying to do research on vampire lore specifically in Rowling’s Wizarding World, but there is almost no information available, so I’ve taken some creative liberties. I hope that is alright with everyone! This was a lot of fun to write, and I am always so incredibly grateful for requests and your kind words <3 Thank you to everyone who reads, likes, and reblogs! I love you all!

Warnings: Injuries, blood, minimal violence, some angst, but ends with fluff!

Living your entire life consumed by darkness is not the existence you would have ever asked for.

But rarely does one ever actually end up with the life they want, and so here you were, a vampire holding onto your still magical blood, capable of complete destruction and complete rebuilding all at once. And this is how you lived your life. You may not have chosen to be bitten by a vampire at the age of 7 when you were out exploring the woods near your cottage at night when you were supposed to be cozy in your bed. You didn’t choose for your parents to frantically search for you the next morning to find you lying in a pool of your own blood, unconscious and barely alive, two distinct holes clearly visible amidst the now almost paper-white skin of your throat. You didn’t ask to have to be rushed to St. Mungo’s in the arms of your crying and frantic parents who were terrified of losing the one they loved more than anyone and anything else in the world. You never wanted to end up lying in a hospital bed for two weeks, barely conscious as the doctors and nurses tried to keep you heavily sedated, not knowing what would happen to the small child who was now almost guaranteed to be a monster.

Mealla is five years old, and her nanae is having a bad day.

Sometimes Nanae has those. This one starts off with waking up in the big bed, and Nanae looking very far-away, and calling Mama my lady. They call Mealla my lady, too, which makes her giggle because it is very silly. But their eyes are sad and their shape keeps going funny, and so after Mama finishes getting her dressed, she tells Mealla that she is going to be spending the day with Papa and Nenae instead.

When nanae has bad days, Mama gets sad.

“I can stay!” Mealla insists. “I can make Nanae feel better.”

Mama smiles at her.

“Yes, you are very good at that,” she says. “But Nanae needs to rest and be quiet, until they are less out-of-sorts. And besides, Papa and Nenae are looking forward to seeing you for breakfast!”

Well.

Mealla does like having breakfast in the big hall. And if Nanae is just going to be resting…

“Okay,” she decides.

Agggghhh!!! I can't believe I forgot to follow you! Your characters developed more and you even started making animated comics (which is really unique and amazing)! And I missed a lot of your art and story details!! Agh! Well, I'm here now I guess. Did I miss anything too important (sorry for the outrage, I just really love your art and characters)

Thank you for following me~ I’m glad you like the growth of my ideas and comic stuff. Lot’s of things have changed from the beginning, Skull-Kid! is still going through many re-writes. I’ve got this book about story writing and I decided to start from scratch again to build an awesome story. It’s so far going really well, and quite interesting. Here’s a preview:

Just some beginning story issues, hope you stick around for more stuff! (Ps. Dex is Bi. Iron Maidens = Cops, Mytho = Mythological creature. )

Nightmare Reruns

* Thayne Jasperson × Reader
* Modern rpf
* 10: Babe, you have a problem, please, let me help you.
* 70: I almost lost you.
* 71: I’m not losing you again!
* Requested by @sleepylyssaa
* Request: the reader goes to the bank and is involved in like a robbery and like the reader is freaked out by it and they can’t sleep or something and Thayne is trying out help.

A/N: this was a fun one that took very little time to work through. Another Thayne story for my legacy. I hope you guys like it.

Warning: mentions of guns and gunshots. If that will bother you then this might not be the best story.

Word Count: 2,600 (I really like that)

~~

All you wanted to do was cash your paycheck from Hamilton, where you work in the costume department. You stood in line, anxiously tapping your foot while checking your phone. You smiled as Thayne responded to your latest text with an emoji.

That’s when the doors slammed shut and gun shots rang out. Everything after that was a blur. The man shouted that it was a robbery. Your phones were all tossed aside and the man went about robbing the place. He didn’t get far before police sirens could be heard and flashing lights seen. It was a scene straight from a cop show, only it was less entertaining right now. It was a hostage situation. Eventually you were rescued and all led outside. You were greeted by police cars and onlookers.

Thayne smiled at his phone as he read you latest text. He sent back an emoji and locked his phone. He went back to watching TV, some random show that was on. The episode ended and he looked at his phone, realizing it had been silent the whole time. He picked it up and unlocked it. Double-checking. Nothing.

A Baker’s Quest is a story now more than a year in the making that has recently entered into a second draft state on its own independent blog, it is a fantasy-action adventure story with a fair amount of comedy and anthropomorphized characters. After the first week of January I began to re-issue the already released chapters with changes, edits, and likewise for the sake of readability as well as a slicker presentation on this new independent blog.

I myself as the sole author of this work cannot say if it’s good given personal bias, but I can say I’m proud of what I’ve written and am happy to parade it around in public whenever I can. That said, feedback of any kind is greatly appreciated and I absolutely hope you enjoy the story I’m telling.

If you’re at all interested by the above, you can find the chapter index here, updates are every day and, once I wrap up the edits of the pre-existing content, new chapters will start on a bi-weekly schedule.

I know your time is valuable, and you may not have enough to spare for a fiction story lasting over 400 pages, but I hope you can spare me some passing moments now and then as much as I hope to make it worth your while. Thank you for whatever comes next.

This is Uhura!Anon popping in to say thank you to all the lovelies who also liked the wonderful story Alex has written me! Fandom is very alienating when you're a lesbian. I know of only one other Star Trek f/f reader insert story and that's because I requested that one as well. I can find enjoyment in stories that feature men so I don't think it is too much to ask for a little WLW content. Once again, thank you Alex for being such a positive force in this fandom ♥️

Ahhhhhhhhh <3 I’m so glad you stopped by! I want to reiterate that it was an absolute pleasure writing that story for you and I really hope I get to write more in the future. I love you dearly <3

Thank you everyone! / New Blog?

With today’s post i have not only reached 150 Followers but blew past it reaching almost 175! i could not be happier with how things have been turning out and i have all of you to thank.

to those i featured in the most recent post i am so glad you enjoyed it and were kind enough to leave your comments, reblogging to share with others, and even some following me in return it makes me so happy to know you not only like but find interest in this blog! their arnt really words i can express my thanks.

I am planing a new blog!

ever since a recent post i made with steve and reginald simulating a character in the story “The Count of Monte Cristo”

i have still been obsessing with the idea of making a blog that goes with the story but has a twist on how its told. so here are my ideas so far

I want to Make it interactive: i want the audience to be able to talk to the main character like a voice in his head like a continence ond/or giving the followers the opportunity to decide what is done at “key moments” of the story, ones that change the outcome of the ending.

I want to make a cast: i want to have other peoples OCs in the story to act as these characters and have a role of the story, nothing would be cannon to the blogs they are originally from, because like a play or a movie, actors will play as these characters for the story and go with however it goes. if things go well when im ready to start id ask whoever was interested to have their oc be actors in this blog they could chose what oc they want to use and what character they want to be, and after gathering a list i would decide who might best fit the part.

it would have small changes: like i said before the story has a bit of a twist, one of the things i want to do is keep the names the same as the ones in the actual story, but change some things to make it more fit the characters playing them (like everyone is a pony, and the one that they consider god would be celesta)

Images would be a minimum: I want to keep askstevethepony going without any interruptions (weekly updates minimum) so to ensure that i am most likely going to draw a detailed image or 2 for ever post of the story and wright out the rest (im sorry if that puts you off but as i said these are ideas, and drawing every action would take far to long)

so as i said before i would love to hear your thoughts on the idea, i dont know when i may start this but as of right now i am just researching and getting my ideas in order

thank you again for reading

I just want to let you know that I’m working on chapter 12 of “moments on the couch and other disasters” at this moment! So I didn’t forget it. I hope you like the story as much as like writing it.

Give me time to put the ’.’ on the i and then I will post it…

love Resi xx

You know those weeks where I was occasionally late in posting up chapters? Well including working all the time and being with family, I had been secretly working on THIS. Yes.
