how do people make text pretty

anonymous asked:

This will sound very stupid. I see a lot of people on Tumblr who has OCs and they're pretty cool. All of them are artists and draw then there's a little text that explains about how they are. Now I can't draw and I don't write. But I really wanna make an OC but I feel like it's easier to draw them first and then write the characters story. How do you write/draw your OCs? How hard is it? U think I should just go for it and write whatever? Honestly I'm not really sure what I'm even asking here.

It’s not stupid, don’t worry! I think everyone has their own way of creating characters; some like me start with a drawing and then come up with everything else, because appearances usually really inspire for a story; some has a clear story in their mind, but haven’t yet figured the appearance. I know people who only have description in their head, but search for artists and writers to help embody their character.

Whenever I draw someone random it’s always quite easy for me to find out what they do and how they are. Since it’s YOUR characters, you can go with it however you like! Even a messy not quite there doodle can help a lot, or a crappy no beta test writing.  Definitely go for it!! Don’t stress too much, creating OCs should be fun and stressless experience. They don’t even have to go with a full figured story!

  • as spidey, peter would totally look out for you
    • he’d text you to ask what you were up to and then he’d lowkey follow you to make sure you’re safe
      • it’s not in a creepy way, but more because he’s seen the terrible things that people do and he’d die if you got hurt in any way
  • you’d start to notice peter’s strange habits of leaving abruptly or being secretive
    • at first you get really sad because you think that he has a girlfriend and he is sneaking off to see her
        • but then you actually investigate and that’s when you find his spidey suit
  • you go up and immediately confront him because you are so afraid of him being in harms way
    • him being shocked that you found out but actually arguing with you
  • hi being so flustered and mad that you could be hurt because of knowing his secret that he blurts out his feelings
    • “I can keep myself safe Peter! Why didn’t you just tell me?”
      • “I can’t let you get hurt Y/n! I love you goddamit!”
  • you puling him into a huge hug and kissing him because he likes you back
    • peter feeling the happiest that he’s ever felt in his life

headcanon req. closed, sorry!

something i’m still so thankful for is the fact that skam didn’t show us people with religious beliefs having negative reactions to isak’s sexuality. sana didn’t reject isak, didn’t even think of doing so because isak being gay wasn’t a valid reason to stop being his friend, it didn’t change how she felt about him. and isak’s mom who seemed to have pretty strong religious beliefs as well also didn’t have a negative reaction, although isak thought she was going to have one. when he texts her to let her know he has a boyfriend, he expects her to be upset about it, tells her “i’m sorry if it makes you sad”. and i think at this point most of the viewers don’t expect her beautiful, loving, positive response. i know i didn’t, not because religious people all react negatively to homosexuality, but because that’s the image we’re always being fed. characters come out and their religious relatives and friends have very strong negative reactions, and they’re met with rejection 

but that’s just not right. it’s not right to lead us to believe that religious beliefs and homophobia and intolerance go hand in hand. it’s not right because there are so many lgbt people who have religious beliefs. and it’s not right because religious people who are indeed intolerant and hateful aren’t because of their religion. homophobia is hatred, and as sana so rightfully said, hate doesn’t come from religion, it comes from fear

Yo, question, im self publishing a short story but how the actual f do i go up to editors and be like, hey so heres my finished manuscript can u check my spelling and stuff without making me wanna chuck it in the river and never write again??? Im extremely anxious about it but i dont want to just have friends proofread my manuscript. 😢😢😢

Depends on what you want to hire them for, is it copy of proofing or both?
(Copy being they are checking for consistency and plot holes and may recommend restructures or suggested edits to improve the text, proofing being “yep your spelling and grammar are correct, here you go!”) 

Usually when people want to hire me they want both, they just don’t know how to word it. Which is why I will always ask them “what do you want from this editing experience”. Do you want me to pick apart the story to make sure it all fits back together again, or do you just want me to make sure it’s well punctuated and spelled correctly? Sometimes they’ll start out with “oh just grammar and spelling is fine, I think I’ve got everything pretty down, but y’know if you have any suggestions” which is when I have to very gently tell them they actually want a copy edit, and this will be a lengthier process than me going through it on a speed run basis. So also allowing yourself ample time to have it edited before a deadline, is a good idea. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve agreed to a project, asked them when they want it by and the email I get back says “well the deadline for open submissions ends tomorrow so if you could just” and I have to tell them no, this is not a thing that will be happening.

You may also want to ask your editor to do a read through first (offer to pay, even if they don’t want payment for it, it’s still the polite thing to do) to see if they have any suggestions as to what you can fix before they start combing through it with a fine tooth comb. This will also give you a vague idea of how they work as an editor and their approach to criticism. 

Some editors only ever leave the negative feedback, short little sentences at the side like “This doesn’t work, fix it.” which to my mind, is one of the least helpful comments you can leave at the side of something. But I’ve also worked with editors who do that and shrug when you tell them that and say “it’s not my place to spoon feed them, if they can’t figure it out they shouldn’t be writing” which I mean, that’s one way to get your coffee spiked I suppose.

Personally I like to let the author know I am enjoying their work. It helps boost their morale a little bit, and means when you do need to tell them “hey this doesn’t really work”, it can soften the blow because I know, I know it’s so easy to look at something and hear “this is shit, why did you even write this”, when what I am actually trying to tell you is “you’ve written something really good here but this part lets it down, why not try rewriting this or consider cutting it entirely”. I have actively squeed in the comments section of manuscripts when I have figured something out or when the characterization is on point, and part of this is because I am expressive, but another part is because I just love words, I love seeing the clever ways people fit them together and I really don’t see the point in not telling someone they did a good job. 

So, how do you approach an editor? Send them an email.

“Hi, my name is XYZ and I was hoping to engage your services for a final draft of my manuscript which I hope to self publish/submit to a magazine/competition/open submissions call/pitch to an agent*. It’s a sci-fi/fantasy/literary/romance/contemporary piece and I’m primarily looking for copy/proofing workand was wondering about your rates. I have an open timeline/approaching deadline so a rough estimate of how long you think it would take would also be welcome. If you’d like to review the manuscript first I would be amenable to paying a reading fee for your time.
Thank you, I hope to hear from you and look forward to working with you,
Best, XYZ.”

Or as some people do on here “ @ joy I need help lmao how much money do I need to throw at you to fix this???” which has also worked :P

(*these are important distinctions to make, it helps us to tweak your work)

anonymous asked:

if you could give any message to someone starting to stan ariana now what would it be

Dear New Stan,

I have so much to say but absolutely no way to put anything into words; it’s been a rough few weeks. One thing I can tell you is that Ari isn’t like normal celebrities. She is a homebody and she likes to sit in her house with her dogs and her friends and compose musicals about rat infestations. She would rather be at Whole Foods than at a club, a sentiment not shared by most celebrities (or even a lot of 20-somethings living in LA). But despite her quirks (or perhaps because of them) the depth with which she loves her fans is incomparable. Even if things have been a bit quiet over the past few months, Ari’s fans know her for her impassioned speeches on stage, her twitter sprees, and her 200 second snapchat stories of her dogs or whatever movie she is watching that night. To understand her relationship with her fans, all you have to do is watch any one of the dozens of livestreams she has done over the years (my personal favorites are those where she goes against her management’s wishes and leaks her songs before they come out because she is just itching for her fans to hear her new music). Ariana’s strength is incredible, which I’m sure you noticed, as you are considering stanning her in the aftermath of the Manchester attacks, but it has been brewing within her for a long time.

In terms of us, the fanbase you are entering, I’d like to think we are some of the most supportive people around. It may have to do with how small our fanbase is, but I never go a day without seeing loving tags on my posts and others’ where people admire and celebrate others’ talents. Even though my parents always told me not to talk to strangers, reaching out to others in the community has made me some of the best friends I could ever ask for, people I can just send all my shit posts and terrible memes and screenshots of tweets too without facing judgment for stanning so hard like I would in real life. Our tag is filled with love and cute pictures and the most hilarious text posts and memes and I could not be luckier to be a part of it. So… welcome. I don’t know how many of you there are about to be, but I sure as hell will do everything I can to make you feel at home here, just as I’m sure everyone else will as well. 

Love, Dana

For anon who wanted boys as a Yanderes! Hope you like it!


-    You were the only one who treated Kiibo like everyone else and actually loved him. So he decided to make sure you would never leave him!

-   And then he realised…. you can’t leave him if he’s always with you!

-    So privacy just wasn’t an option for you. You would even be greeted outside the bathroom, and god help you if you took a long time! Because that’s really suspicious.

-    The only time you could be alone was at night. Until one night you wake up to find Kiibo in your living room!

-    He tried to explain to you that most cheaters leave to meet their secret lover at night, and he couldn’t risk that!

-    But you weren’t having anything he was saying. And hurt by the fact he even thought of you doing something like that you told him to leave.

-   And just like that something inside of him snapped, this is what he was worried about in the first place.

-   You can’t just make him leave; it was either him…. or nothing.

Korekiyo Shinguuji :

-  Since he laid eyes on you he knew you were the one. You were the only one who got his way of talking, and just his personality in general.

-   But when you let him down he was really confused…. you were meant to be together. It was destiny!

-   You apologized and told him you don’t really see yourself in that type of relationship with him and went to leave.

-   But he ran to the door and got there before you could, locking it as he stared into your eyes. His feelings quickly turning into a mix of love and anger.

-    It was fate for you to be together! If you didn’t understand that then what’s the point in you being here? In this world?

-   He slowly walked towards you, backing you into a corner.

-   You looked so peaceful now, so beautiful.

-   You can’t break his heart anymore.

Gokuhara Gonta:

-   Gonta never meant to scare you; he was just trying to be a gentleman looking out for his princess!

-   But there was a line between looking out for someone and following them.

-  Everywhere you went you felt his usually comforting eyes staring at you. And it honestly freaked you out…. did he not trust you?

-  But it wasn’t that….he finally told you one day when you confronted him about it….  he didn’t trust over gentlemen! What if you stopped loving him!

-   You insisted that would never happen and that you would always love him no matter what! But what he was doing wasn’t right.

-          He apologised and convinced you that he learnt his lesson.

-    But that wasn’t quite true…

-   All he learnt from this is how to make sure you don’t notice him as you walk down the street.

Kaito Momota:

-   At first Kaito was pretty laid back, you trusted each other and there was no need not to right?

-  But after a while Kaito noticed you were always texting your old school friends and got very jealous.

-    He would always ask you questions about what type of people they were and every detail about your relationship with them!

-    You answered the questions not thinking that much about them and told him he was the only person you thought of having romantic relationship with, they were just friends!

-    You honestly thought he was acting cute. And thinking he was satisfied with your replies, went to make a snack.

-    But when you came back in to the room Kaito was in, you found him with your phone smiling at you. He explained to you that he messaged all your friends telling them not to bother texting you anymore.

-    It was so odd… he was acting so different yet so normal, with his goofy smile and casual voice. You let anger get the best of you and demanded he texts them back and gives you the phone back.

-   He looked at you confused “What are you talking about? They were trying to part us! I should have done something far worse in all honesty”.

-   That was the last time you saw your phone. And the start of your new life with just you and Kaito.

 Amami Rantarou:

 -     You didn’t think Rantarou minded when people got close to you, because at the end of the day he was your lover and your best friend.

-   But one day you realised that as soon as you got close to someone they would just stop talking to you.

-   Almost like they vanished into thin air, no texts, no phone calls nothing!

-    And that really upset you, was there something about you that they didn’t like so much that they just disappeared?!

-    Rantarou was always there to cheer you up, telling you things like “They’re weren’t  worth it, they didn’t love you like I do “and “it’s okay, I will be with you forever!”

-    Some of things he said about them were kind of odd, why was he always talking about them in past tense?

-   You were never really sure until one day you were at his house and saw a watch that looked kind of familiar….

Shuichi Saihara

-   Shuichi has always been kind, which was no secret. So you weren’t surprised when he offered to help you do the little things like washing up and hovering.

-   But then, after a while he got more obsessed with helping you.

-   He wouldn’t let you do anything, saying you should relax and let him do your chores.

-    You tried to object but he would get a little annoyed and that made you feel awful. He was being so nice after all.

-   Then one day you woke up and smelled…. pancakes? You went downstairs to find Shuichi cooking with a few of his everyday items dotted around your house.

-  You asked him what he was doing here so early…. with all his stuff?

-  He replied without even looking back from the pan, “I’ve decided I will live with you, it will be easier for me to help you and we can stay here together forever”

-  He sounded so confident in what he was saying, as if it was an everyday topic. But it wasn’t like you had a say in the situation.

 Kokichi Ouma:

 -   Ouma joked around a lot so when he said things like ‘stay with me forever’ and ‘only look at me’ you laughed it off thinking he was trying to be tough.

-   But one day as you were about to leave his house for the day after another round of hid possessive jokes he looked you dead in the eye, no cute, childish features showing.

-  “Why do you laugh? Don’t you love me?”

-    This hit you by surprise “O-of course I do!” you said, but you felt awful. You liked him, a lot but you hadn’t been together for long; was it love yet?

-   After you left you decided that tomorrow you would confess that you need more time before you use the word love.

-    But before you could think about it properly you started to feel dizzy and slowly passed out, when you woke up you were tied to a chair.

-   The first thing you heard was Oumas voice “liar“.

-   Now every day the you wake up to Oumas smile

“Hey s/o “he would say “do you love me yet?”

 Ryoma Hoshi:

-   He acted cool around you when others were talking to you.

-   But when you weren’t around he was very detailed with what he would do to people who tried to get between you

-   And if people thought he was joking he would give them a taster session.

-   It was all for you though

-   They would just try and break you heart.


Happy Birthday, my dear friend - @sim-bubble ❤️

“Jesus fucking hell, Ale. Where do I even begin? You are well aware of what you mean to me, putting it in words is going to be hard, especially because you know how I hate expressing feelings.

 Ale, you are, without a doubt, one of the best people I have ever had the luck to meet. I am pretty sure that ever since I texted you for the very first time we have never stopped talking. In you, I found one of the most amazing friends ever, you were there for me throughout one of the hardest moments of my entire life, and you always managed to make things better or to make me laugh.

 Also, you have probably the biggest collection of selfies I took while on the toilet, so I think that explains how much you mean to me, I mean, you can make a photo album with those, and who wouldn’t want that? For real though, Ale, you are my chicken nugget, the person I spam almost every day, one of my closest friends and just overall amazing. 

Happy birthday, Ale, hope you spend the most amazing day ever because you really deserve it. And, I promise, one day I will let you put makeup on me, you can consider this a voucher for when you’re here. 

Hope we can keep having our portuguese wars for a long long time, even though it’s a war pt-portuguese definitely wins. I love you, Ale. Thank you. For being you, for always being there, for existing. Just… obrigada por tudo aquilo que alguma vez fizeste por mim. So, once again, happy birthday, my dear friend. Have a good one.”

Getting the most out of tumblr

With 1DFF being down and out of business (whether that’s forever or not is still unclear), tumblr seems to be the prime place for all our favourite fanfictions to be posted. There’s nothing wrong with tumblr at all, I very much like tumblr myself, but sometimes we, as authors, want to get the very best we can out of it – and so, yes, that includes how to reach a wider audience to help boost our stories. Of course we write for ourselves and all that jazz, but there’s just something nice about having someone appreciate all the hard work you put into something, am I right?

So, with all this in mind, I’ve put together a little list of things I’ve learnt over the years when it comes to tumblr and posting my own fics on tumblr.

Okay so, I have no idea how we reached and passed 200 followers already. But oh my god, THANK YOU GUYS SO MUCH! When I first started using Tumblr, like month ago, I did not think that I would reach 50 followers, let alone 200. So, thanks for enjoying the content and all the shitty text posts I make about these two idiots who give me joy and make me question why I stan them. It honestly means a lot. This is a follow forever, because I didn’t do anything for 100 and yeah.

The following blogs are one’s that I really like and enjoy and that I want to become internet friends with, but I’m hella awkward bc I don’t know how to start a conversation, but go check them out.
(Favorite mutuals are bolded and italicized, bolded are mutuals that are pretty cool, and italicized are people that I want to talk to, but like yeah my social skills RIP)

ok sorry if you got asked this before but.... how do you style your headings? i tried some tutorials and they never seemed to work out so i decided on asking the lord and savior of code tutorials aka u <3

I don’t think I have ever seen a tutorial for this, but everyone uses these small headers these days. I’m sure everyone has a different way of making these, but it’s pretty easy, and this is how I do it: I just start writing the code as if I’m only making a code for a fancy text. Then I put a border around it and voila. I realise this is too broad, so I will explain it as well as I can.

a quantitative analysis of interpersonal relationships

Or, an examination of what Kara Danvers really means to Lena Luthor. A Lena-centric character study, with a little bit of plot and a lot bit of Supercorp.


It occurs to her, as she sits with a cup of coffee in hand across from Kara, that she has stopped keeping track of how many interactions they’ve had.

Lena Luthor is good at many things — math and chess and public speaking, for starters — but making friends? Not one of them. Attending an all-girls’ boarding school for the better part of a decade taught her about the intricacies of social politics the hard way, which invariably meant she’d had to define certain rules for herself to operate within.

1) Build advantageous relationships that will improve social standing and/or probability of future success.

2) Get everything you need from them before they figure out they don’t really like you all that much and ditch you.

3) The quicker you can do this, the better.

hey guys!! so I’ve been in the studyblr community for a couple months and I got a question on how I survived AP World History on my personal account from: @x0kristin101. I figured instead of answering this question in private, I could share it with you all! I got a Some of these tips can probably used for some other class(es) but I specifically used these for AP World History! 

*disclaimer #1: most of these strategies/methods/tips were demanded by my teacher, but it does take personal motivation*

*disclaimer #2: I got a 3 on the AP Exam which qualifies for college credit at MOST colleges, HOWEVER check with whichever colleges you plan on attending/applying so you know what you need to strive for*

1. Read the text!!

    • AP World History is a very hefty and work intensive course, that spans from 3000BC all the way to the present! Reading the text once or twice a week will really help the information sink in. If you can, mark up the text and circle words you find important or underline sentences that state main ideas. DO NOT SKIP ANYTHING WHEN YOU READ. Read the chapter for its entirety

2. Take Notes. pls. 

    • Taking notes is crucial because when you write something, it becomes ingrained in your brain and afterwards, review your notes in whichever way works best for you, whether its reading or rewriting them. The way I took notes was I would read through the chapter once, then I would go back and read the first paragraph of each section. 
    • After that I would write the MAIN IDEA of what I just read in my own words. Underneath it, I would put bullet points of details from that section. At the end of my notes, I would do a compare & contrast chart of any 2(or more) things from the chapter. Next, I would talk about any DIFFUSION that happened like anything that went from one civilization to another and changed with that other culture.
    • Then 10-20 words from the text that you did not know that are related to the chapter like Teotihuacan or Montezuma or Olmecs, then define them.
    • Lastly, write a summary using SPICE categories. SPICE = Social, Political, Intellectual, Cultural and Economics. My summaries always came out long, but if they don’t that’s okay :) 
  • 3. Flashcards.
    • Flashcards for us were due EVERY FRIDAY. On the blank side, you would write the term. In the upper left corner, you would write the chapter and the page number you found the term. On the back you would write the basic definition of what it was. Skip a line then write a little bit more of an in depth explanation. On the last line, you write the significance of that person, place, thing, idea, religion, etc.
    • How to Study these flashcards: go through them once. Make 3 piles: the ones you definitely know, the ones you sort of know, and the ones you didn’t know AT ALL. After you complete the first run, move the pile of the Do Knows out of the way. No need to study them if you know it already!! 
    • Put the Sort Of Knows and Don’t Knows in a pile and study those. As you study those, go through them and make a pile of the ones you Do Know and the Don’t Knows.  
    • Repeat aforementioned steps until you are out of flashcards. 
    • NOW TAKE A 15 MINUTE BREAK! run, sleep, eat, talk with a friend, watch TV. THEN COME BACK TO THEM and study them again. The human brain learns better in short bursts, not long hours. That’s why the Pomodoro Technique kicks ass :)

4. Focus on the Main Ideas & Be Able to Connect Topics/Ideas

    • The only way the CollegeBoard is going to fit over 3000 years of history on the 70 question multiple choice part is by giving you questions on Main Ideas. They want to see if you can make connections with any random things. Like on the year I took the test, they asked what Gandhi and Mao Zedong had in common. 
    • At the end of each chapter, write down what you think the main ideas are. Your teacher should cover or express what the main ideas are. Sometimes they are mentioned right in the text. If you aren’t sure, talk to your teacher!
    • To connect ideas, make mindmaps or practice taking 2 random things and seeing how they are connected. You can create Links like we have for APUSH, where you pick 4 random topics/people/events/etc and you have to find a way they are connected. 

5. Practice DBQs/Do Practice Tests

    • The Document Based Question or better known as the DBQ is pretty self explanatory: they give you a question and then you have to read documents tied to that question. This is THE HARDEST essay merely because there are SO many components that you need to have in order to get the grade. I can’t give much advice on this (lo siento) but all I can say is PRACTICE PRACTICE PRACTICE
    • DO PRACTICE TESTS. You need to practice doing 70MC questions in 55 Minutes and you need to practice writing ALL THREE ESSAYS within the given time period. If you buy a prep book, it should have a practice test. Or try talking to your teacher about accessing some if they do not provide you with any practice tests in class. 

6. Try Your Best! 

    • It’s going to be okay. AP World History is a lot of work but its SO much fun. You learn about why people are the way they are and you become educated about different cultures and …its amazing. Do it. 

Thanks for reading this and I hope it helped! If you guys want, I can do another masterpost on taking notes from a textbook so the taking notes part is a little more clear? Same with flashcards? Please let me know if you liked this!! 

Much love, xo

akibluna  asked:

How do you people take the prettiest notes ever? And you gotta be writing it pretty small to fit so much text on one page. Like, are those personal notes you do at home or do you somehow have the time to make those notes during class? Probably at home right? Also, how do you have such pretty bujos? I can't fit that much in my composition bujo, then again I am just a beginner. Huge fan of your blog and it's really inspiring. Wish my notes and bujo looked so pretty!

Ahh, thank you very much and sorry I’m replying so late love!!

I’m still figuring out how to write pretty notes :’)) but I know that people definitely do the pretty notes at home, there’s no time to do these in class! Rewriting your notes at home is good for learning & revising all the stuff, plus if you’re a visual learner, you can add nice diagrams, different fonts, colors, etc… I believe that people here generally have smaller handwriting, because it’s somewhat neater :D you can find a style of handwriting you like and try to learn it if you like, but it’s absolutely not necessary for having nice notes! I believe that a bit of lettering and a few colors do the trick :) if you want some handwriting/lettering tips, try my tag here. If you’d like to see some more pretty notes for inspiration, look at my tag notes ;D

As far as bujo goes (and the notes as well, actually) it’s all about practice. The first few pages in my bujo were horrible :’D but over time I found my style and am quite happy with it now :) don’t be afraid to experiment with your spreads, try to come up with different ideas to fill up space, layer things, try doodling… you’ll see what works for you :)

Hope I helped at least a tiny bit!!

anonymous asked:

hi lacey! i was just wondering, how did you make friends here? do you just text someone after some time of commenting and sending asks? and if you do, what do you talk about first, and how do you find the topic? thanks!❤️

awh hi anon! here, i’ll throw some hot tipz down for yah. these are tips coming from someone with bad social anxiety, and all around a pretty bad conversationalist, so if that’s the boat you’re in this may be helpful?? feel free to ask me anymore questions tho!! 

- find people with similar interests!! this is important, because then you’ll feel less awkward. if i see people who like TAZ, mbmbam, or even just more general things of fantasy and sci-fi then i feel like i’m less bad at talking to them!!

- commenting is important i think!! show you like what they do, cause people like that! plus if you really actually love what they do that’s another topic of conversation!

-  most people start the actual conversation w/ me first!! idk why, but yeah!! when a conversation starts i usually go thru the pleasantries and then, i’m going to be super real here, just blurt out smth completely different that we could talk about! usually the conversation lulls after pleasantries, so if you were to say (example) “hey i saw you post a mbmbam gif, have you seen the tv show they made yet?” right after the ‘hey how are you im good’ part then usually it continues on its own from there? it might sound like,,, not good but it works out well for me!

for example me and sars started talking because of her bachelorette challenge she did for Molly because I put my sim, Jinx, into it! she’d give me updates etc and from there we talked abt other things like music interests which we had in common! Then sars introduced me to j (brat) and etc etc! 

another example is i joined a discord group! there are plenty floating around the community and although i may not be super active in the ones i’m a part of I do make an effort and i do talk to a few people from there!

- finally if it doesn’t work between you two, dont give up! talk to them the next day, and if they just don’t seem to be feeling it or you’re not feeling it then talk with someone else! just because you share similar interests or do anything from the above doesn’t mean it’s going to work out 100% of the time. you just gotta keep trying!!

hope this helps peach, have a gif of travis for good luck :* ~!

I am a complicated human being to be friends with

I’m complex, as they say, but I’m also complicated. I am like a walking paradox, and that’s not a good thing. 

I’m complex, as they say, but I’m also complicated.
I am like a walking paradox, and that’s not a good thing. That makes me a a terrible friend sometimes, because sometimes I just ignore other people when they text me, no matter how many texts they send, when doing something - or just procrastinating -, and if I’m not into talking to someone at school and stuff I’m just gonna get a book and start to read or maybe put my earphones on and leave they talking to themselves, and at the moment I just don’t realize that it’ll make they upset or sad - I’ll probably realize that later, and because I over-think pretty much everything I’ll feel anxious about that, but they will never know because I won’t tell them. Besides that, I am really talkative at times and if I am comfortable with you I’ll talk your ears off if I’m in a good mood.

It’s hard to be a friend of mine. I can be a weirdo, I can be a smartass, I can be funny or moody, I can be introvert and extrovert, all at the same time. You’ll never know me or understand me entirely. And probably I’ll ignore you for days, thinking that maybe I should text you or something but being to lazy for doing so. That’s probably why I only have 3 or 4 friends that I talk regularly to, and that’s because they didn’t give up on me.

If you didn’t give up on me, I love you so much.

It might seem that I don’t, it might seem that I don’t care about you or your feelings but I do. I just don’t know how to make that clear; and, sometimes, I just need a time for myself.

Germany: “Mhm. And how did you call your coin again?”
Netherlands: “A Duit.”
Germany: “Right. And how do you make your words plural?”
Netherlands: “By adding -s or -en.”

BTS Reaction to: You bein’ this cute lil’ cherub with cute lil’ moans.

>:} Bts and Bigbang reaction to you having cute moans and being a chubby little cutie and to you being simular to a cat

BIG BANG is on this post.

Rap Monster:
Daddy mode activated as soon as the smallest moan reached his ears. Kidding. Kind of. Depending on the type of moan and the situation really, if you were stretching out and let out a cute little moan; he’d find it super cute but if you moaned in any form of sexual context, intentional or not, he’d be very… intrigued. Almost baffled by it, how can it work as cute and sexy? HOW?!

He would find these little cat mannerisms of yours to be so cute, from your body shape  and sweet face to the tiny sounds you’d make now and then. Like anytime you did anything, like yawn; he’d be like: “omg so cute. How do they do it?”

He would be very happy whenever you’d let out a cute little moan. He wouldn’t show it much outwardly but it just was almost too cute for him. He would be caught staring a lot, you’d ask if something was wrong, he would deny everything. He’d highkey lowkey sneak photos of you and send them to the other members with cat ears added into the photo. Everyone is surprised at his actions, everyone is also very jealous.

My girlfriend is the cutest!!!” He would feel the need to announce this to the whole world, like he treated your little moans and you cat features like a fucking blessing from God or something. Every time you let out a cute moan, he ‘inwardly’ freaks out. (It’s pretty outward too.)

Originally posted by troiskims

He would just stare at you and just wonder “how.” He had chubby cheeks and he was so insecure about it and you had chubbiness too but he’d just be like: HOW DO YOU MAKE IT LOOK SO GOOD?! Honestly, you’d help a lot with boosting his confidence because he’d see you being confident when you had chubby features and you’d encourage him to be the same way, eventually, you wore off on him. Everyone notices, you get a text from the members saying thanks, because you really made him realize something tons of people have been trying to tell him. But you did it.

He always thought you were the cutest person ever but one of the other members actually ended up bringing up your similarity to a cat to him and boy, was he ever floored about this. Like he came up to you and was all, “(Y/N)! Did you know! You’re like a cat! A really cute fluffy little cat!” 

Originally posted by fy-taekook

Embarrassed Kookie. Why were you so similar to a cat, why were you so damn cute? How is he supposed to handle this kind of thing?! You’d wonder what was up and eventually, after A LOT some prying and teasing, he just blurted out: “You’re just too cute and I don’t know how to handle it!”  Now you’re the blushing one.

the type of boyfriend i think CALUM would be!

in general: overall, calum would be really protective. he’d try to keep it under wraps but really he would just be looking out for you and your relationship. he’d want the relationship to just be about you two, he’d never let anyone else’s opinion effect your relationship together. his main priority was making sure you were happy, not caring about what anyone else had to say about the two of you.

in public: when out in front of others, he would just carry on with you like he would alone. although he’d probably keep the kissing and butt squeezes to minimal, but still would sneak them in when no one was paying attention or around. i think he’d like to be quite social with you, hanging out in large groups and such. he’d love to listen you talk to your friends, just to get a little insight to how you were around them versus with him. and he’d get a giddy feeling when he noticed that you were always more open with him than your friends. he’d also love to have you around with the guys and his other friends. it would make him really ecstatic to know that you got along with the other really important people in his life besides you. 

behind closed doors: when alone, he’d want to have your full attention. he’d pretty much do everything to get it. he’d call your name a thousand times, bug you by prodding your stomach with his fingers, text you from another room, lay across your lap etc. but typically he didn’t have to do any of this since you also wanted all his attention. so basically it was a win win for both of you. time spent alone together would be pretty lazy. you’d either be watching some show or just unwinding together. alone time wasn’t too often because the both of you were always up for a day out or a night out rather than staying in. but either way, both times were always enjoyable since you were together.

sex: there wouldn’t be a recurring way the two of you had sex. sex would always depend on the mood you both were in. it was typical that you’d be in the same or at least similar mood sexually. like in the morning, you’d both be totally down for it to be slow and lazy but after a concert or a night out you’d both be aching for something rough. of course there would also be passionate times, like after planned dates and such. during those passionate times, he’d be sure to make it all about you. he’d go out of his way to make sure you were pleasured to the fullest extent. also during these times i think he’d either want to be in missionary position or have you ride him. with missionary, he would be able to constantly have his lips against yours and he could watch your face contort in pleasure. with you riding him, he could also watch your many faces of pleasure as well as just watch you let loose on top of him. during rough times, majority of the time he’d prefer doggy style, and he’d love to loop your hair around his fist and occasionally pull you back against his chest. but he also wouldn’t mind occasionally being dominated either. he would just like the thought that one of you was at the others mercy. i also think foreplay would be something that he loved and was really important to him, he’d love to see you so riled up before much even happened. sex would also be quite random and spontaneous. it wouldn’t take much for you to do to turn in him on, and vicea versa. this would result in random acts of needing to head home or stall sex. overall, sex would be a fun at times and intimate during others, making for a well rounded sex life.

cuddling: no matter what, he’d love to be the one shielding you. he’d always want to be the big spoon or have his arms wrapped around you while you laid on top of him. also, being quite the cuddly guy, he’d always be bugging you for cuddles, especially when tired. if you were out in pubic and he was tired, he’d lean his head against your shoulder and wrap his arms loosely around your waist. but of course, at the most inconvenient times he’d be asking you for cuddles. for example when you were studying or working. he’d start out by whining out, “babeee.” and eventually would some how would get his way by using neck kisses, which would transfer over into the cuddles. he’d love to play with your hair or kiss your neck while you traced the patches of ink littering his skin.

romantic gestures: he wouldn’t really know what to do so i think he’d try all sorts of things, constantly pampering you. some days it would be little simple things like cute texts all throughout the day, but other times he’d splurge a bit and buy you something. but of course, the thing he would buy would benefit himself too, lingerie. but whatever it was, as long as it put a smile on your face, down the line, he’d end up doing it again just to see that smile.

on tour with you: i think if on tour together, he’d want to spend all the time he could with you. so from the start of the day to the end, all the time in between when he was available, he’d make sure to be with you. the constant interviews and events made it a little difficult but as long as he got his cuddles before bed he was happy. of course, you’d attend every show that you could, either being front row or backstage. typically backstage to avoid being constantly noticed by fans. but for the times when you were in the crowd, he would throw in little intros dedicating the song to you. although when not on tour, you’d love to go out as much as you could together, i think on tour, you’d both prefer to stay in. just because you had so much to catch up on that texts and calls just wouldn’t cover. also, you both just liked as much alone time as possible, knowing that you’d soon be gone again. and of course, there was a lot of sexual frustration that would’ve built up over the time of being apart that would need tending to.

on tour without you: similar to the times when you were apart only for a day, he’d pull out his extroverted side, trying to ignore the fact that he was without you. it may not have been the healthiest way to cope, but it seemed to work for him. you on the other hand would just get immediately sad by the thought of being without him, so of course large chunks of tour were difficult. this would immediately weigh him down as well, knowing that you were sad. as much as he would try to ignore his sadness, when exposed to yours, he couldn’t help but fall into a slump. of course, skyping, texting and calling would play such a huge part during this time, being the only way of communication. he’d often send texts when it was 3 am and he couldn’t sleep because you weren’t beside him. the boys would also play a big part in keeping the two of you connected. they’d always be texting and snap chatting you when calum wasn’t, just to let you know what was going on.

social media: most of your relationship would be kept off the internet. of course there would the occasionally instagram photo or tweet, but overall all, you both thought of your relationship as something between you two, not thousands of strangers on the internet. also being very aware of all the potential and regardless hate, you both thought it was best if most of your relationship was kept under wraps. this way there was less drama and less to worry about.

around friends: he’d get along with all your friends seamlessly. even if he was a bit skeptical of them, he’d put up with it because he knew it made you happy to know that he was friends with your friends. but for the most part, that wouldn’t even be the case. having similar personalities, you’d get along with the same type of people, so he’d just naturally get along with all your friends. i think the group would be quite large and he’d mesh his friends in as well, forming one large group basically. it was easy in a large group, since you would’ve met through mutual friends anyway, you’d have one large group where everyone knew each other but would break off into smaller groups at times.

around your family: being a brother himself, he’d for sure get along with your siblings relatively well. it’d be easier for him to get along with them then it would be your parents. if you had a sister, i think he’d get along best with her, considering he has a sister as well. for a brother, he’d be a bit worry of him unless he was younger than him, then they’d click easily and your little brother would take an interest in him, most likely asking for some bass or soccer lessons. he wouldn’t necessarily be nervous the first time meeting your parents but he'd definitely be cautious. but similar to with your friends, i think he’d like to watch you with your family, just being curious to your relationship with your parents and siblings. i think he’d be a bit of kiss up to your mother, knowing that your father probably wouldn’t be the biggest fan of him. and of course your father would have the “talk” with him and he’d come to you later that night after their chat with the widest eyes.

around paps/fans: since most of your relationship is kept away from social media, it’d also be kept away from the public. if he could, he’d make sure you wouldn’t be in a situation that involved paps. which of course would be hard with their growing success but he would try his hardest. for the times when you were exposed to paps, he would never leave your side, trying to get out of wherever you two were as fast as possible. with fans, it would be a bit harder to ignore the masses but you really didn’t mind, since for the most part the fans were nice and supportive. but for the ones who weren’t you would typically not let it bother you. and if things were getting out of hand and an excessive amount of hate was being sent your way, he would take your phone and delete twitter and what ever other social media it was coming from and you’d have a disconnected day together just so he could repeatedly remind you how amazing and beautiful you were to him.

living together: it would have been a bit over a year before the two of you decided to move in together but once you did you realized it was one of the best decisions of your young lives. living together would include a lot of walking around the house naked, butt slapping, cooking and failing, making him kill bugs, him screaming when it moved, dance parties, listening/watching him play bass/sing, watching him work out, bugging him while he’s working out, teasing each other, pounding on the door excessively when one of you was in the bathroom, taking care of each other when one of you was sick, making faces at each other when on opposite sides of the couch, ordering take out, singing loud and obnoxiously, messing with each other if you or he was the first to wake up, cuddling, sex on the couch, him constantly begging for a puppy, screwing with the sinks when one of you was in the shower, pranks, making up for the pranks with kisses, arguing over what to watch, settling on a show neither of you care for and making out instead, taking a ridiculous amount of pictures of each other and together, getting drunk together quite often, giving each other massages after a rough day, showering together, stealing his clothes and so many more things that would make living together so worth while.
