how much more canon can you get

also, if you hear me talking about welcome to night vale, and you don’t know what i’m talking about

check out this podcast

it’s weird and wonderful and you get some A+ representation

like Cecil Gershwin Palmer the radio host you hear is a gay, jewish, chronically ill man

and like art wise there is no real canon designs for anyone, there are vauge descriptions, but that’s about it

also the cast and crew who make this show are all really awesome people

and the podcast is 100% free, you can pay for something for bonus things but anyways

Welcome To Night Vale

it’s really good

you have a canon gay couple who are so much more than being gay, you have characters coming to realize how they’ve grown up, you have a character that is literally a smooth river rock, and a five-headed dragon.

please listen to it

(don’t mind me just jotting down ideas for a oneshot I might write for @incaseyouart’s elf!phan au)

• established canon: dark elf dan and plant elf phil

• phil traveling south through (dark??) woods; searching for healing plants (unknown reason - most likely sick family)

• dan grumpy and patrols - finding a glowing phil

• phil is very quirky and happy, throws dan for a loop, but quickly warms up to him and even allows phil to call him “dan” (prefers howell)

(this point on is not established canon, own ideas)

• phil doesn’t really ask for dan’s aide, but after running into a Shadow Beast in the forest dan decides there’s no way in hell he’s leaving this glowing plant boy by himself

• dan pretends he’s just going along because “it’s his job to watch strangers that wander into the dark forest” but phil knows

• cue the pair going on adventures through the forest together, trying to find the ultra rare plant phil needs but also having an adventure along the way

• phil teaches dan about various plants and their properties, he can be a bit all over the place sometimes

• one time he gets genuinely upset bc a chipmunk wouldn’t take his nuts and dan laughed for the first time in months

• dan finds phil gazing at the stars and says the stars are much more visible here; dan lays down with him and he teaches phil about the stars

• one day it rains and (dan canonically doesn’t like the rain) phil yells with joy and runs out into it, dancing in the puddles

• “how can you not like the rain? it brings life and leaves a rainbow afterwards!”

• dan has a hollow branch that can be played like a reed flute and after enough begging from phil he plays songs for him

• turns out dan always wanted to play but the elders chastised him when he was young once so he became too afraid to pursue it

• once dan’s initial grumpiness fades, he’s curious about everything, including (canon: phil’s head plant)

• dan discovers that phil is actually very knowledgeable about many things and teaches phil in return about the life of dark elves, which phil finds fascinating bc dark elves tend to shun outsiders and not talk about themselves

• one day a large Shadow Beast attacks them, and dan displays his dark magic in front of phil for the first time to protect him

• dan was afraid to do so before in fear that phil would find his magic scary

• it’s quite the opposite; phil is ecstatic and gushes about the “telekinetic-like powers” that dan possesses

• dan is injured in the fight and finds that phil has magic of his own: healing magic

• phil (canon: he glows) also radiates heat, and after this realization dan soaks up as much of it as he can

• they meet a few other dark elves, and dan pushes phil behind him so he can speak to them. they’re wary of phil in the forest but dan gets angry when they demand him to get out.

• phil says quietly that perhaps he should just leave the forest but dan’s heart twists bc he didn’t realize how much he loved travelling with phil and grabs his hand, asking him to try and sort it out with his people

• dan talks to the others after cooling off and they reluctantly agree to let phil find his plant before he leaves

• dan is relieved but keeps an extra watch on phil after that, because he’s sure the rumor must’ve spread back at the village

• now the pair must find this plant quickly, and phil starts seeming more and more worried about whoever the plant’s for

• and anyway it’s pretty obvious I’m obsessed with this idea now so I won’t say anything more and start writing

Tip & Tricks on Dialogue

hey y’all. so I thought I’d impart some knowledge about how to craft good dialogue because I think sometimes not feeling confident in one aspect of writing can discourage people from doing it all together. And it can be especially tricky with Check Please! (since you’ve never had the chance to physically hear the characters talk). 

so here’s a few things to consider the next time you write

TF2 Lore and Canon vs Fanon Psychology

This is going to be a really bad incoherent 3 AM thinking post

TF2′s refusal to take itself seriously via the game and the lore has been one of its greatest strengths but also one of its biggest weaknesses, and an easy way to dismiss any thought invested into it by saying “you’re taking it too seriously”.

Pic related: when Sniper was basically revealed as New Zealand/Zealandia/Atlantis Superman, this is arguably the point where the 25-50% of people who wanted some sensibility basically gave up on the lore.

Everything that the comics have sort of established in terms of setting, history, and characterization have sort of taken TF2chan-era fanon (the bad and good parts of it) and delivered a prompt “fuck you” to it, to the point where I’m convinced the TF2 comics also exist as a way to say “fuck you” to everybody’s expectations. Re-tellings of the medium via fanart and fanfiction that present itself in a more serious light to even the slightest degree, or have invested some form of logical research, as such, are frowned upon as taking themselves too seriously. 

Again, this just tends to be standard reaction to fanon that contains a subjective/objective-based deviation from canon but it’s like any sort of dramatic or somewhat serious, logical-based take on TF2 (despite the Jeremy scene in Issue 6 as well as Sniper being shot/seeing his adopted parents in Issues 4-5, establishing yes, you can do drama in a comedy) will not belong ever and the reaction to this compared to other mediums is more harsh because of how much TF2 forces you to not take it seriously or think about it.

Hey there, I LOVE your blog. Your headcanons and scenarios for Sidon give me life (there'll be more content for him, right?). ❤️❤️ Anyways, if it hasn't been done already, may I request some head canons for Sidon on how he'd react to random displays of affection from his s/o? From random hand holding, touches, quick hugs, small kisses here and there. Like when he least expects it? Happy almost birthday, by the way! ✨🎂✨

[A/N: Thank you so much! And yes, there will be more, but ^^; apparently everyone has the Revali bug tho. Hopefully I can finish all the Revali stuff and get more Sidon works out there! ;A; Fishman needs more love!]

Sidon’s reaction to random displays of affection

-As much as this boy is confident in showing affection, when he is caught off guard  he becomes a so bashful. (that is if it’s the beginning of the relationship)

-However if the relationship has been going on for some years now, it has an opposite effect. Fishman gets horny. No ifs, ands, or buts. 

-If you come up behind him and hug him he is alarmed and slightly embarrassed if it’s in front of people. 

-If alone you better be prepared to be lifted up and have your soul leave your body from his intense smooches.

-If he’s busy working and completely absorbed in his work and you pepper his tail fin with kisses, suddenly he can’t concentrate and has to cover his face.

-Feather light touches to wake him up is his favorite thing in the world and will smother you returning the favor. Bow chicka wow wow may ensue

-Grab his hand out of nowhere, and he will look at you feeling blessed by the Goddess Hylia herself.

-He may or may not begin to swing you tho, you got a strong arm socket?

-He’ll react differently if you grab his hand if around people, he’ll kneel and kiss the back of your hand even with his face on fire. He likes to make it even more apparent you are his.

-Boy, if you smooch this hunk of a Zora, all he can do is be putty in your hands. He REALLY likes it when you’re assertive. 

I really had to struggle last week not to post this immediately because I’d promised to do a themed set, but there were some really stellar STAR WARSfics that I wanted to flail about!

707!!!

….Ooooooh boy. Just a fair warning: I do love Seven. I love all the RFA. But I’m definitely going to come off a little salty when talking about him. Get ready for some unpopular opinions. 

general opinion: fall in a hole and die | don’t like them | eh | they’re fine I guess | like them! | love them | actual love of my life

hotness level: get away from me | meh | neutral | theoretically hot but not my type | pretty hot | gorgeous! | 10/10 would bang

hogwarts house: gryffindor | slytherin | ravenclaw | hufflepuff

best quality: Despite what he may think about himself, Seven really does love the RFA and will be their “savior” and protector 24/7. And he shows that by being there for and supporting them in any way he can from behind the scenes. 

The best example of this is the fact that Seven is one of the reasons why Zen got some needed exposure early in his career by helping a video of his go viral. Seven didn’t have to do that, and Zen never asked him to. He just did it because he knew Zen needed the boost. 

And both times Yoosung joined him to inspect Mint Eye, Seven always emphasized his safety. And when he couldn’t protect Yoosung from Unkown in Yoosung’s route, Seven was devastated.  

He may not be my top favorite, but I can talk a lot about this part of Seven’s character because it really is sweet. 

worst quality: I love Seven as a character, but his story…… 

I didn’t hate Seven’s route by the end, but I definitely felt underwhelmed. To be honest, I liked his route the least.

I really didn’t like the days when he was pushing MC away and being a huge asshole to her. I get that it’s typical: “I care but I’m dangerous so that’s why I’m pushing you away” act. BUT, if anyone treated me like that in real life, I’d walk right out. You want me to leave you alone? Fine. 

I know, I know. Jerk move. But, that’s why Seven isn’t the kind of guy for me. I just prefer people who are upfront and honest with me from the get-go.  

And the transition between that personality and to his more open one was really sudden, imo. Like, BAM, he’s nice because…He realized he loved you too much to keep being a jerk? I didn’t buy it…

Doesn’t help that I figured out his route and the main story from miles away, right when I first saw Unkown in Zen’s (my first) route. As a result, absolutely nothing about his route surprised me because it was all spelled out for me. I was hoping Cheritz would twist it up, but it played out exactly as I predicted. 

Everyone else’s route surprised me in different ways. But Seven’s? It felt like I’ve seen his story done many times before in the many manga I’ve read and forgotten about over the years (I talk like I’m old. I’m not that old.) 

ship them with: *crashes through your window* DID I TELL YOU HOW MUCH I LOVE YOOSEVEN TODAY????

brotp them with: Like with Yoosung, I’m open to the idea of Seven and MC being besties. Even if they’re meant to be soulmates in-canon, I’m pretty sure platonic soulmates are a thing.

needs to stay away from:  We’re all thinking it. But I really think he should stay away from them for both their sakes. Because Seven doesn’t come off as the forgiving type. I don’t hate this character, but I’m pretty sure Seven would wreck them for what they did. 

misc. thoughts: I’m very happy to say that I’m not the only one who’s kind of peeved that a loud part of the fandom keeps declaring that “707 loves you in every route!!!!” The only route I can say without a doubt he has feelings for you is in Jumin’s, based on a few phone calls. The Casual Routes, though? Never. Saw. It. 

Also, I don’t like that he’s technically canon and how much more attention he gets compared to the others because he is. I never liked the idea of a canon route in any otome game. It makes the other routes feel obsolete because they’re not the “true” routes and just “what-ifs.” 

Hoseok’s Affection

And now it is time for our hope, our angel (I really adore that introduction) a total sweetheart who is actually just a puppy in human form like how is someone so sweet and cuddly and pure but then he can get on stage and fucking own it every second he’s on there teach me your ways sir bc that’s impressive as fuck, Jung Hoseok aka J-Hope aka hobi

  • Just a quick explanation of this since it’s pretty self explanatory, this is just gonna be a post about I think the boys would cuddle/hug, their PDA levels, etc.
  • HE IS S O AFFECTIONATE OH MY GOD TINY SUNSHINE
  • V v playful v v loving v v sweet and caring and always wants you to feel loved every single second of the day
  • The type of boyfriend to send you flowers but then also the type of boyfriend to walk in with that flower hat from House of Army and just be like I AM the flower
  • He doesn’t care who initiates the affection, he’d be more than happy to hug you first and he’d be equally as happy if you hug him first
  • We’ve seen plenty of both cases, there are a lot of clips of the boys being really affectionate with him, I think it’s bc hobi’s someone you can be comfortable around and just make yourself at home with him and you very quickly realize you don‘t have to be shy or hold anything back like if you wanna give him a hug go give him that hug he will love and adore every second of it
  • He’s a really affectionate person as is and he’s got a lot of really playful affection
  • Will absolutely try to get you to do the Lady and the Tramp food kiss (this literally isn’t even a head canon this is actual canon I fucking love him so much how is he real)
  • No available seats??? No proBleM boYfRiend!HoBi to The RescUe
  • He’ll be more than happy to either get up and give you his seat or let you sit in his lap or he can sit in yours maybe you don’t even gotta worry
  • Hobi is the type of boyfriend that isn’t just a boyfriend but also a best friend, someone you can talk to about anything and everything, someone you can go out with and be really fancy in a restaurant but also someone you can chill out with and be in sweats around and just watch some shows maybe a movie
  • Will 100% call you cute about 185 times a day
  • “Look at my love, my cutie”
  • “Did you see my cutie’s newest selfie did you see it”
  • “Are you witnessing the cuteness I am rn my bby’s so cute”
  • P L Z TICKLE HIM 
  • We’ve seen how cute and giggly he gets and he gets all squirmy and just he’s so cute how is someone so cute ?!?!?!?! plz explain it to me bc I don’t get it he’s so lovable and smol and cute and I wanna hug him
  • He’s such a hugger oh my lord
  • I’m just gonna leave this video here or this one or this one bc if that isn’t the cutest fucking thing what is
  • Hugs are some of his favorites tbh he would be so so happy to just sit and hug you for like an hour, talk about your day and his and be able to make each other feel all the love
  • He has a few different hugging styles as well
  • He’s got his super happy hug for when he or you gets home and it’s not super quick but it’s also not a very long hug it’s a few seconds of him squeezing you super tight to make you laugh and most likely kissing your cheek a few times
  • He’s got his I really really missed you hugs where you’re both whispering how much you love each other and hugging each other really tightly and his arms are around your waist and he’s so warm and it’s a v v necessary hug to have in that moment
  • Loves loves loves back hugs, he’d be so happy to have your arms around his waist or his around yours and his head on your shoulder or leaned against yours
  • Surprises you by back hugging you a lot, he’ll come into the room, realize you hadn’t heard him and sneak up really quietly to hug you and scare you a bit before you get all happy again
  • Cuddler for su r e
  • He loves spooning, he loves being the big spoon the most
  • He doesn’t mind being the lil spoon but he doesn’t really like not being able to hold you too but there are some days where maybe he’s had a longer day or a rough day and he needs to be held for a while, being the lil spoon is v v comforting for him
  • But more often than not, he’s gonna go for the big spoon
  • He loves being able to nuzzle your neck or your hair and being able to have his arms around you and hold you close and know you’re right there next to him he doesn’t care if his arm falls asleep he loves being the big spoon so much
  • He would be s o so so so so so so happy whenever you gave him any affection at all but especially when you stroke his hair or rub his arm bc he has that sleeping habit where he strokes his arms or his chest and we’ve also seen him literally whine and get kook to stroke his hair so he could go to sleep
  • If you let him rest his head on your chest or your shoulder and just play with his hair or rub his back or even just toy with his fingers, he’ll be so happy and probably fall asleep on the spot after some pillow talk
  • His kisses are always really sweet and are normally meant to get you laughing or smiling at least
  • The sweeter softer kisses are saved for when it’s just you two, they last longer than the others but they’re just as love filled and he’s got his hands cupping your face and he’ll really gently move your hair out of your face and sometimes he’ll end it by giving your forehead a kiss and he always always always whispers “I love you”
  • But his other kisses are v v playful and normally are done in rapid fire to get you smiley and happy and they still have a lot of love in them of course bc this is hobi, when he’s in a relationship, I have zero doubt he’d be his all into it
  • Will buy a new chapstick/lip balm and make you kiss him a bunch to see if you’re okay with the flavor
  • He doesn’t go for hand holding as often, it’s more of a you’re sitting next to me and my hand was next to yours so I’m just gonna hold it for a bit or like when he’s leading you somewhere (or vice versa)
  • It happens the most when you two are sitting next to each other, he just can’t resist it your hand’s right there his is right next to it how does he not just close that teeny tiny gap and be able to give your hand squeezes
  • He definitely prefers the whole interlocked fingers hand holding but he’s not gonna complain if you just hold onto his hand bc then he can also rubs lil circles into the back of your hand
  • Lets you play with his hands all you want bc have you ever seen his hands that is an example of beauty my friends
  • It happens a lot in the early morning/late night when you two are barely awake and he’s giving you a really soft sleepy smile while you toy with his fingers and trace shapes into his palms and it’s one of those moments where he isn’t jumping off of the walls and he’s so happy and relaxed and he could honestly fall asleep bc he’s so content and warm
  • Onto PDA levels
  • He will a l w a y s have his arm around your shoulders or yours around his
  • He doesn’t mind holding your hand as you guys walk around but there’s just something about being to have you right next to him and being able to lean in whisper things to you and he just really likes the closeness of it
  • He would give you so many hugs, regardless of the location you guys are at (unless it’s something series like work or school or something like that)
  • Like that’s how you two make waiting in lines more interesting, you hold each other really tight and occasionally mumble something to the other
  • He’s A okay with kisses in public but just not the serious kisses, it has to be something playful or just a quick lil peck bc there are some things he wants to keep private
  • May try to get you to wear couple shirts or some couple bracelets and will probably succeed in getting you to wear it bc how do you say no to that sweet face
  • Would a d o r e it if you wore his clothes, whether it’s in public or at home like this one time, he’s on tour and you send him a picture and you happen to be wearing one of his hoodies and he almost screams bc he thinks that’s so sweet and cute
  • “My closet is yours that hoodie is yours take it wear it forever”
  • Affection with hobi is playful and loving so much love he’s so head over heels he’s so cute and sweet

Bumbleby fans are the Klancers of the RWBY fandom, and I say that as someone who LOVES Bumbleby.

Y’all get a song that gives you more canon ammo than ever before and your bitter asses have the nerve to go “LMAO IT’S JUST QUEERBAITING THEY’RE NOT REALLY GONNA DO IT” just because it’d make no damn sense for Yang or Blake to immediately scream about how much they wanna eat each other’s carpets when Yang’s supposed to be mad about Blake abandoning the team and Blake’s dealing with the anxiety and guilt of Adam promising to destroy “everything you love” and probably blaming herself for Yang getting hurt to begin with and going to her parents so they can tell her what she needs to do.

I absolutely would not put it past any of y’all do the kind of dumb and outright EVIL shit that they do (ie threaten to leak spoilers if they don’t make your ship canon, accusing other people of being pedophiles because of age gaps where neither person is a child and then being so fucked in the head you send ACTUAL REAL LIFE CHILD PORN TO PEOPLE OVER SHIPS) because the only people who are more hateful, bratty, moronic, self-entitled and overall just plain toxic are the White Fang Apologists. 

anonymous asked:

So Bakugou and Todoroki's hero names didn't get decided early on I think because they're each gonna get their own little mini arcs that get em to decide them, but I kinda wanted to know your opinion on what they might end up being? 'Course they'll probably be derived from future plot that we don't know right now, but I wanted to ask anyway!

!!!! I’ve never really thought about Todoroki’s, tbh? So I have no clue, honest, but as far as Bakugou goes I’ll keep on holding onto Ground Zero until Horikoshi officially and unequivocally tells me he 100% definitely scrapped it, my friend - it’s such a cool name??? I read it and I nearly cried when I realized that probably it’s not gonna be his actual hero name rip

I’m sure you didn’t mean anything bad by this ask anon, but as I’ve said more than once I really, really don’t like the word need. I don’t need to do anything, no one’s paying me for this. When I’ll want to draw more bokro it’ll for sure happen, so don’t worry about that~

Valentine's Day HC

~Spread the Love!! How will the heroes respond to getting valentines?

Reaper:

  • All the love gives him hives. He’s genuinely disgusted by all of you. 
  • Deep down though, if you do give him a valentine, he’ll be so happy. All he ever wants is for someone to look past the Edgelord™ and see the slightly less grumpy Edgelord underneath it all. 
  • (I just want Reaper to feel loved okay. Sue me.)

Soldier 76:

  • Probably won’t take it seriously because you’re (probably) half his age.
  • When he realizes you’re being serious, he’ll take the valentine. 
  • He might be blushing, he might not, who knows with that visor on. (He’s totally blushing)

Hanzo:

  • Unless you hand deliver the valentine, he’s gonna think you gave it to him by accident. Even if you do hand deliver it, he still might think it was a mistake (self deprecation is a powerful thing) 
  • When he realizes it’s for him, his face will get really red and he’ll thank you quietly.
  • Except a small valentine in return but there won’t be a name on it. He couldn’t get himself to do it.

Genji:

  • He’s been working so hard on loving himself, it didn’t occur to him that other people could be falling for him. 
  • His vents let out steam when he takes it.
  • He stutters when he says thank you.
  • (Cue Zenyatta giggling in the background)

McCree:

  • He’s already gotten a few Valentine’s today tbh
  • Tips his hat to you. (All his hair is hiding how red his ears are.)
  • “Thanks Darlin” 
  • He’s really happy to have them. They remind him that he’s loved.

Zenyatta:

  • Already got one from Genji that morning.
  • H’s surprised you’d think to give him one but he’s also really touched. He thanks you very nicely as he reads it.
  • He has a valentine ready for you too. He made one for everyone. It’s easily the most genuine kindest valentine you’ve ever read.

Pharah:

  • She didn’t expect a valentine today. (Except from Mercy)
  • She’ll take it calmly with a quick thank you before she takes off. (Tactical Retreat or running away, you decide)
  • She thinks about it all day and it makes her face red. 

Reinhardt:

  • He reads the entire valentine before pulling you into a hug. 
  • The man wants you to feel as loved as you make him feel. 
  • Thanks you several times after he gets it.

Mei:

  • She stumbled over her thank you as she takes it.
  • Doesn’t know how to respond at first and it gets a little awkward. 
  • Her face is so red you’re concerned. Is she okay? She’s not okay? 
  • People usually overlook her so the fact that you took so much time out of your day to do this means more than you can know.

Mercy:

  • Doesn’t particularly like Valentine’s day. 
  • Your cute little valentine brings a smile to her face though. 
  • She puts it on her desk. 

Tracer:

  • She’s already got a canon valentine, thank you.
  • If you can find her in all the valentine gift exchange though, give her another. She’s bouncing around oohing and aahing over everyone’s valentines. 
  • Give her one and she’ll turns bright red and giggly.

Winston:

  • Completely blindsided when you hand it to him.
  • He’ll start grinning immediately as he looks over the valentine. 
  • You better believe it finds it’s way on his cork board in his lab. 
  • Every time he sees it, it makes him smile.

Ana:

  • Similar reaction to S76.
  • She likes the attention though. 
  • She gives you chocolate as a thank you.

Lucio:

  • He’s been getting Valentine’s all day in his fan mail. 
  • When you finally track him down, he’s been looking for you already. The precious child is giving everyone valentines.
  • The tips of his ears turn pink while he reads yours.

Sombra:

Days pass by in a blur.  

Liam’s lost count of how many people he’s hugged, how being on a private plane once upon a time was an exciting novelty but at the risk of being a complete pop star about it, it’s like getting on the 63 back home in Wolverhampton these days.

He’s so excited, even with all that’s along with it and that he doesn’t like to dwell on, Paddy sometimes tries to draw him out on it, sees the signs and sometimes he’ll try to draw it out with humour, other times with an arm flung around Liam’s shoulder.

Liam plays along like it works sometimes, and he and Paddy both know the truth but Paddy will ruffle his hair or give him that grin that conflicts with the concern in his eyes but he leaves it be.

Liam steals time, private time, where he can even if it’s five minutes, even if it’s two, even if he can only just say, “Hi, I miss you,” and even if there’s only enough time before the wheels go up for the response to be “Never as much as I miss you, babe”

They send each other selfies when they first wake up, and just before, in Liam’s case at least and he suspects it’s the same for Zayn, half-hearted attempts to sleep.

And he counts down the days.  Each morning, he gets a text from Zayn with just a number on it, has done, every day since they last saw each other.

“I take it he sent you a zero this time,” Liam looks up and takes off his sunglasses and he can feel himself blushing, except he’s not embarrassed, not really and he shrugs at Paddy’s words, can’t stop the grin and Paddy returns it and this time there isn’t concern.

Liam’s vaguely aware of Charlie and Paddy ribbing him, but he doesn’t care, he just looks down at the phone screen and there’s never been a better sight. 

Correction. 

Liam shuts the door behind him, it’s late, and his head’s spinning with praise and plans for his future. 

He doesn’t care, he takes one more step, then another till he rounds a corner and there, right there, that’s what’s better than any zero. 

Zayn’s holding onto the remote control, kind of.  He’s got a pair of jogging bottoms on, and a hoodie, his hair’s still got the traces of green he promised he wouldn’t get rid of till he saw Liam again and the beard is growing again, his eyes are shut so just like all the times before, Liam’s distracted by the way each time he sees him, it’s like he’s grown a hundred more eyelashes, and his lips are slightly parted as he gently snores.

He almost doesn’t want to wake him, except that’s a total lie.

He strides across to the bed, and gently taps at Zayn’s feet and then folds his arms as Zayn murmurs and then shifts and then blinks his eyes open and looks up.

“Told you, you wouldn’t be able to stay awake,” Liam smiles as he says it and sits down on the bed, next to where Zayn shifts and spreads his arms out as he yawns then sleepily smiles and places his hands on Liam’s arm gently tugging him closer.

“No one likes a know it all you knob.” 

Liam grins, responds with his middle finger before he allows himself to relax and he falls into Zayn’s side, it’s not ideal because he can’t fully see Zayn’s face and the reason it’s not ideal? Well, he’s spent too long imagining not taking his eyes off Zayn

He can make out the rise and fall of Zayn’s chest instead though and the way he keeps attempting to stifle his yawns, his eyes crinkling before Zayn makes a tutting sound.

“Didn’t your mum tell you it’s rude to stare?”  As Zayn says it though, his eyes crinkle again, except this time it’s with a smile and Liam wants to see him fully now so he shifts once more, turns on his side, and rests his cheek on his palm and his elbow on the pillow and he does stare now.

Quietly he replies, “I think she’d get it, why I need to that is,”  it hits him then, the weight of how long they’ve been apart, all he’s had to face and his shoulders sag and his gaze drops away from Zayn, till he’s staring at nothing but then fingertips gently scratch at his chin.

“Eh Li, what did we say?” 

Liam could respond with what they’ve talked about, tried to talk about more like, he could talk about the times that conversations ended up with one of them hanging up, they could talk about planning what they’d do beyond all this, if there ever is a beyond all this because sometimes it’s hard to remember that there will be. 

It’s late though, and he’s done with that, this time is too fleeting to be wasted on what’s around them, rather than what they have that can never be shifted so he lifts his eyes till they meet Zayn’s and he chews at his bottom lip and Zayn nods.

“Oh yeah, we talked about that too, take off the chains first and you’ve got a deal.”

Long Distance with Jimin

And now it is time for the first member of the maknae line, half of the Busan line, the other half of Yoonmin, our angel who looked s o fucking good with the pink hair cotton candy!chim was one of my faves it was so cute while it lasted, he always looks so good tbh, Park Jimin aka chim chim

  • So this series is gonna be about a long distance relationship (ldr for short) with the boys, this post is gonna more focused on the online relationship aspect but it’ll still be ldr!!
  • This is gonna involve youtuber!Jimin (here) to sum it up, he has a channel where he uploads anything he wants, covers, dances, vlogs, tags, just anything he’s in the mood for that day
  • So the story of how you two meet is that you meet over social media (youtube) you see one of his dance videos, mention how much you loved it in one of your videos, the subscribers tell Jimin and then shit just goes from there
  • He’d already been a fan of your channel and you loved his so the two of you start talking online and he’s s o friendly and sweet and you two get to know each other really well
  • The first two months of your relationship is long distance until you two can finally meet up
  • At first everything is platonic, you’re considering doing a collab together or just meeting up but you’re both too busy to fly out at first bc college and you’d need to figure out where you’d stay if you did fly out to see him
  • Like would you stay with him??? Is that okay with him?? Or should you find a good hotel nearby? Is that something you ask him, you don’t know what approach to take to it so you save it for when it comes up
  • But then things start getting more flirty bc chim can be a lil flirt when he wants to be, he’s shy and smol and cute but he goes from shy giggles and looking away to avoid people’s gazes to ripping his shirt off
  • So at first, he’s just being friendly, asking how your day’s going, what video you’re filming/editing, what your favorite movies are bc he wants to get to know you and you do the same with him
  • And slowly but surely, more flirty lines start up like he asks about your ideal first date, what you look for in a significant other and he starts telling you about his crush and it’s pretty obvious he’s trying to hint at you being the crush
  • “Actually, my crush kinda looks like you haha how ironic right??”
  • “Oh hey my crush has that same necklace what a small world”
  • He eventually gathers up the courage to Facetime/Skype you and ask you out and he has this whole date planned out in his head, he wants to fly out to see you and have the first date in person and he wants to explore your city with you
  • You say yes when he asks and he gets s o happy, you know that smile Jimin gets where it’s all teeth and most of the time he laughs and his eyes are so bright his entire face is just lit up and it’s so precious, that’s the smile he gets
  • You two were gonna meet up either way but the date is an extreme bonus
  • He sends you clips of his journey on snapchat, packing up his bag for the week he’ll be with you, heading to the airport with kook driving him, the both of them singing in the car on the way over, Jimin in the plane bc he plans to take a nap the entire time and wants to let you know that so you don’t text him and get !!! when he doesn’t respond
  • But he was lowkey up all night editing and packing and was way too excited to go to sleep how does one sleep when such exciting things are going on
  • You pick him up at the airport bc he obviously doesn’t have a car/ride in your city yet and he also doesn’t know his way around and you’re in awe at how handsome he is in person, cameras don’t do him justice tbh
  • He gives you a hug and it definitely lasts longer than a “friend” hug but he also doesn’t wanna make you feel uncomfortable bc you two had just met so he doesn’t stay in the hug as long as he would’ve liked to
  • It feels so comfortable with him like there is that first hour where you two are figuring each other like how close you can sit near each other without the other being uncomfortable, how affectionate you can be with each other, stuff like that
  • But Jimin’s a really affectionate person so it doesn’t take too long before he’s hugging you and laying his head or chin on your shoulder or leaning on you when he laughs and the relationship feels really natural, nothing is rushed or forced, everything happens at its own pace
  • You two spend the week together and he’s so much sweeter than you could’ve ever expected and he makes you laugh a lot and he’s always so giggly and smiley which makes you giggly and smiley and you both wish he could stay longer but he’s got school to go back to
  • The goodbye hug lasts a l o t longer than the first hug did and you can see how much more comfortable you two are with each other
  • My head canon is that Jimin is a nuzzler when he hugs people like you know how some people bury their face/nose in the other person’s hair or neck or shoulder, that’s Jimin all the way
  • His hugs are really tight and warm and just overall lovely and he would make such a great cuddler don’t even get me started on this shit
  • You promise to fly over to him in a couple weeks so it’s not gonna be too long until you two can see each other again but you’re in that honeymoon stage where you wanna talk to them and see them as often as you can so going long distance after you two just started to figure each other out is ouch
  • He leaves one of his favorite rings with you so you have something of his to wear and he gets one of your necklaces so you two have lowkey couple items
  • Jimin makes sure he calls/texts you everyday and he never ever (e v e r) forgets the good morning/night texts
  • There are so many nights where you two stay up way too late texting each other and you’re both smiling at your phones and Jungkook keeps teasing Jimin about it bc that’s the job of a best friend
  • He is a king of selfies, even his “ugly” selfies are cute like how he makes the weirdest angles that should not make anyone look good actually look really nice is beyond me I don’t get it I’m fully convinced he’s a secret model
  • He sends tons of selfies bc he wants you to know he’s thinking about you and he sends lots of pictures with Jungkook’s dog bc two puppies in one shot that’s a good deal
  • He also takes lots of pictures with the rabbit Tae gets and that’s equally as cute bc he keeps calling her his niece and he sends this one clip of her hopping around and you can hear his giggle in the background
  • Skype sessions with chim though, he’s in one of his really huge hoodies and he’s got a snack bc your Skype/Facetime sessions normally last a couple hours
  • The two of you will do anything from watching the same movie at the same time so you can watch it together to just talking to listening to music together to eating meals together, it’s always really chilled out but it’s nice to be able to spend that time together
  • He gets s o excited when you tell him you’re flying over, he just about cries bc he’s so so so happy
  • He makes sure his apartment looks cute before you get there bc the last he wants is for you to walk in and see a pair of his boxers on the bed
  • He’s just really excited and kook and tae are officially in charge of teasing him about it but they’re of course excited and happy for him
  • He buys a bouquet of your favorite flowers to greet you with and some sweets and he has this whole day planned for you bc he’s so ready to show you around Busan
  • “I’m on my way to the airport, I’ll be waiting!!!! I wore the shirt from my last video, you said it was cute, don’t worry I washed it”
  • “Jimin, my plane hasn’t even taken off yet”
  • “Well tell the pilot to hurry, I gotta hold my bby asap”

top 5 fanfics?

YOU BEAUTIFUL SO AND SO

okay, i’m 100% unsure of protocol on this so after much thought i’m gonna give you five fics that i think people should read and don’t get the cred they deserve 

so here are some hidden gems, in my opinion 


1. Let’s Start Right Now [alterocentrist]
I can’t explain to you how into this I was. Am. Will always be. The following one shot is honestly too good for words. The author understands how real relationships work. It comes across.

2. if you love until it hurts, there can be no more hurt, only be love [geoclaire]
The only canon compliant fic I love. This one hurts in all the right places and make you feel good and tired and lovely.

3. Miscommunication [mad2thebone]
If you asked me my fave fic ever, it is this one. This is it. It’s so in character and in depth and just…UGH. I can’t write about it because it 100% speaks for itself. 

4. Beautiful Stranger [daisyfalls]
Wanna ache all the time? Read this. Another great one that totally gets how being in a relationship is and the small bits and bobs that are so complicated and confusing. You could argue that Vignettes is better -  but fuck, what a great place to start.

5. pierce the room the a cannonball  [camphollstein]
THIS IS IT. The perfect Carmilla AU. Honestly, why do I write any, because THIS. IS. IT. 


SO THAT’S IT. ENJOY. HAVE FUN. GET TESTED. YOU DO YOU. 

The process of ending up writing slash, as a non-male queer person
  • Fall in lust with a character who happens to be A Dude, like 90% of the characters in all the things you watch, read, or listen to because your friends do.
  • You really don’t want to write het, because you are not one; it’s a matter of principle.
  • You can’t genderbend the character, because that’s AU not canon, and/or a lot of people who mostly are cis think that genderbends are transphobic and not legitimate AU. 
  • Same problem if you make them nb, with the additional problems of “what pronouns to use” and “does the setting have anything remotely comparable to our understanding and words for gender and sexuality,” and maybe also “goddammit I don’t want to write anything that reminds me of my struggles in real life.”
  • Worry that you won’t get any hits on your work if it’s not m/m, especially if you don’t have a large, established following or if the fic is pretty vanilla.
  • Give up and ship the character with another man.

OR

  • You actually do try to make it femslash, via genderbending or shipping canon female characters, but there isn’t a word for that thing you do with fingers and your lower labia, and it’s just too frustrating.
  • Writing the characters as trans women is probably going to be considered even more fetishizing, if you’re not one (or even if you are one and people just make assumptions), and besides you’ve heard hormones can complicate how the sex works, and you really hate getting details like that wrong.
  • You give up and write about dudes.

OR

  • Fall in lust with two or more characters who happen to be Dudes, because male-dominated media again, etc. Write them all having sex, because you aren’t a member of Starfleet, obviously, and you’ve heard too much hate for Mary Sues.

OR

  • There is so much homoerotic tension between two male characters that even the heterosexuals can see it. You know it will never become canon, but you really wish it would, because who doesn’t want a queerer world?
  • You write about the dudes.

OR, in the last decade or so,

  • There is actually a canon gay male ship, both of them are in the main character cast, and holy shit the existence of people kind of like you has been acknowledged by society at large. The actors/character designs are also decently good-looking.
  • You want to expand upon this shining nugget of representation as much as possible. You want to imagine a world where queer people can just exist and do things.
  • You write about those dudes.

And then you end up with a three-year backlog of planned longfics for one or two slash ships, even though you really want to be writing about a society of matriarchal lesbian orcs.

(What pretty much never happens, without a genuine heterosexual involved, and especially without an unreliable narrator involved:

  • “OMG look at those guys, it would be so hot and sinful if they were gay, I think gay people are exotic sex creatures with massive dicks. But I’m 100% straight!”
  • “Sin” being used to mean specifically gay sex, not sex in general, extremely kinky sex, or actual sacrilege.

What I have seen exactly once in years of yelling at people on the internet, and so probably counts as the exception that proves the rule:

  • “I’m an ally because I ship Destiel! Cisphobia is real!”)

anonymous asked:

Have you considered the possibility of Dettlaff being jealous of Geralt? After all, Regis endangered Dettlaff's decades-long regeneration process to save his life...

Oh, I’m sure Dettlaff would be jealous to some degree of the friendship Regis and Geralt have. But before I go further into my explanation I first gotta say a couple of things.

First, I’m into all sorts of interpretations and versions of what happens during Blood and Wine DLC and after it, but my main jam is that Dettlaff didn’t die and that’s the angle I’m coming from when I talk about this topic.

So, @lenaluthordefensesquad sent this post to me and asked for my thoughts on the comments. Now this petty back and forth between supercorp and sanvers is something I have been aware of and seen but have purposefully tried to avoid as much as possible and not engage with. However, Meadow asked me to make a post because apparently I said some things worthwhile. So here’s the thing. I ship both supercorp and sanvers (although I still tag it detective danvers because I am a little petty myself but i’m not gonna talk about that here it’s irrelevant). So keep that in mind because I might sound harsh towards sanvers here. Basically, my problem with the comments on that post are that they are trying to blame something that they perceive as a problem on the existence of a non canon ship. So, my response to seeing the post is this: First of all, to say that in general Supercorp gets more screentime than Sanvers gets is just untrue. Lena has only been in a handful of episodes, most of which she had very little screentime. The fact that we finally got a Lena centric episode does not mean that supercorp is suddenly getting more screentime than sanvers. The other issue is that, the writers of the show are not putting scenes with Kara and Lena in with the non canon ship in mind. Lena and Kara’s friendship in and of itself, without the existence of the ship is IMPORTANT to the show.  The show is called supergirl, and while yes Kara and Alex are equal Lead characters, the main storyline is not about the romances and it shouldn’t be. Sanvers has always been a side plot for this reason and will probably continue to be. Lena’s episode relates to the larger action portion of the plot that the show has always focused on where Kara and the DEO are fighting bad guys, in this case Cadmus (idk if i spelled that right, but I don’t care). Also, it is important that Kara have friends on the show who are not just the boys that fall in love with her. In season one she had Cat as a friend and Alex as her sister. In season 2 if Lena was not allowed to develop this relationship with Kara, Kara would be down to NO female friends, and Alex being the only other woman she really interacts with often. So Lena and Kara’s relationship, even without the existence of supercorp is integral to Kara as a character and as the lead character. 

If Sanvers shippers truly want to complain about them not getting much screentime, there is a whole host of other things that are more responsible for that, that would be legitimate to criticize. Mon-El becoming more of a lead character and getting the screentime of a lead character is one of them. But I think we need to remember that this is an ensemble show, and it is not the Sanvers show. Sanvers has had and will continue to get some centric episodes where they get a lot of screentime, but because of the size of the cast that is not going to happen every episode. I also have a HUGE problem with the superiority complex shippers of canon ships seem to have. I honest to god always thought it was just a hetero shipper issue. But it looks like in the microcosm of fandom we are having a similar thing happen with the relationship between canon and non canon f/f shipping that has happened between say, white cis gay men and the rest of the LGBTQ+ community. It’s like once they finally get to be part of the elite canon group who has the power of writer validation behind them, they want to shit all over the people who don’t have that luxury. This is something I really truly do not understand. It used to be that ALL f/f ships were noncanon because we did not GET to be canon. and it is fantastic that we now once in a while get canon ships, but fandom was created and developed for the specific reason to transform the canon text into something new, to explore things within the story that do not get explored by the actual writers. This is our history. Please do not forget that. Fan works exist to take a story places that the mainstream media and the writers of the show won’t go. So to come in and hijack a post made by a supercorp shipper as a JOKE based on the fact that Katie McGrath has played many gay characters in the past and seems to have ridiculous chemistry with other women, melissa included, is uncalled for and rude and not actually justified. Supercorp is not canon. We know that. We KNOW that Alex and Maggie are in fact more gay than Lena because the show acknowledges their gayness, but we are allowed to joke about the chemistry and how flirty Katie McGrath is without have a horde of petty sanvers shippers jumping on us. 

And I have even more so a problem with this type of fan who would comment on posts in this way, because they seem to be the same kind of people who joined the fandom ONLY because they heard there was a canon f/f ship in the show, but instead of joining the fandom and appreciated supergirl as a whole and respecting the fandom environment and works created previously, they came in and shit on everyone in the existing fandom. They disregard season one and it’s importance, and many of them came in and shit on the General Danvers shippers for shipping a ship that has existed since the beginning of the show because it wasn’t the current canon ship and astra is “Evil and dead”. Which btw, General Danvers was my only ship on supergirl for quite a long time. And in that same vein, Supercorp actually existed as a ship long before Sanvers existed, and even longer before Sanvers became canon, so to suddenly feel that Lena and Kara’s relationship, which has been developing since the very first episode of this season, shouldn’t get screentime because sanvers is the canon ship is just petty. You want them to give more screentime to their canon f/f ship, you feel that they hype it up to much for the amount of follow through you get? fine, critique that about the writers, but do not blame supercorp and it’s existence and do not go hijacking supercorp shippers posts to be petty. I am not here for ship wars between f/f ships. The only ship wars I can at all justify are the ones where it is a non canon f/f ship pointing out the how a canon f/m ship is heteronormative or fans who happen to ship an f/f pairing critiquing an f/m ship because it is written in a sexist manner or a harmful manner. And even then, I do not support post hijacking or message spamming to the shippers of those ships. Otherwise, there is absolutely no reason that ships should be fighting and jumping on eachothers posts just to be petty, especially not between to f/f ships. So, that’s it. That’s my opinion on the “discourse”. This ended up being a hell of a lot longer than I expected, but I think everything I said was important and relevant. Please be respectful to one another. Other f/f ships are not the enemy here.

Am I Wrong?

         He sauntered into the room with an air around him that reeked of…arrogance. Pride. His walk boasted that he owned the room; any room that he entered. He made his way to the table in front of you and turned on his heel. He straightened his tie and looked you up and down, pleased that the restraints around you, holding you to your elegant dining chair, were working. You gazed at him, his proud stance in his pristine, gray suit. His pitch black, short hair that swept over one eye had a slight curl at the ends. The dark area under his eyes looked unnatural…at a glance they looked like the eyes of a hard-working business man. Upon closer inspection, they looked…demonic. A gentle smile graced his face. He popped his neck from one side to the other; he had a prominent square shin decorated with well-kept facial hair.

         Finally, he spoke. His words were calm…comforting. “It’s been a while, hasn’t it?” You’re too afraid to answer. He sat in the chair opposite to you and placed his hands in his lap. “You look stunning.” You do not reply. He chuckles. “I know a lot of you are scared right now. Terrified to see me…but I know for a fact that there are plenty of you that are elated…am I wrong?”

         He stood and straightened his suit jacket. He put his hands behind his back and paced in front of you.

         “I know you must be well aware that I can have anything I want…” His smile was gone, replaced by a face that quietly studied its surroundings. Eyes that searched deep inside for the next words to use. “This suit. This mansion. My many associates…” He stopped directly in front of you again with a furrowed brow. His composure was slipping. “Then why…can’t I,” his eyes became black as coal; the lights in the room flickered, “HAVE YOU?!” He slammed his hands on the table, breathing heavy. He looked around the room and sighed, straightening back up, adjusting his suit, his cuff links, his tie.

         From the darkest corner of the room came a chuckle…followed by high pitched ringing and television static. He whipped around to face the noise; his hands quickly clenched and shook. From the shadows came a man clad in all black; black denim, black t-shirt. His hair was short, colored a dark, forest green and his eyes had a black sclera and bright, green iris’. His pointed ears were pierced with black gages. You stare unbelieving at the gaping wound in his neck…he brandished a knife and pointed it at your captor.

          “Because you’re a child, Dark.” This voice was so chaotic; it gurgled and glitched with the hint of an Irish accent…but it was all over the place. High pitched, deep; sometimes it felt as if several people were talking when he spoke. It was impossible to follow.

         “This one is MINE, you imp.” The black-haired man, Dark, growled, stepping forward. “You had your turn, Anti. Leave.”

         The green haired man, Anti, appeared behind Dark and cackled, brandishing his fangs. He slipped the knife right underneath Dark’s chin, it’s blade mere millimeters from his neck.

         Dark unclenched his fists. He stood straight again and gained his composure. He was much calmer, now…more annoyed than anything, it seemed. Like they had both been through this before.

         “Anti. I am in no mood for your games.” Dark sighed, eyes closed. “And if you taint this suit with Sean’s blood, I will end you.”

         Anti glitched away and re appeared atop the table in front of you. He pointed the knife at your face, grinning wildly. “We can both play, you know. It’s not a contest.”

         Dark grinned and stood beside his…comrade? He smirked. “I do suppose you’re right.”  

*~*~*~*~*~*~**~~*~*
Eh, just something I had the itch to write; it’s awfully short. This Dark and this Anti are much different than the ones I write but these two are more…canonical. Even though there is no canon Dark or Anti because we all sort of came up with them. I’m getting off track- thank you so so so much for reading! I hope y’all liked it. Let me know how I can improve or what else you’d like to see from me!

anonymous asked:

I want to start photography. Which camera would you suggest? Any tips? ((You're the only photograph I dare to ask bc you are nice and stuff and the internet is so big and Google isn't helpful.))

since apparently it’s a long rant day here it goes
it’s a tricky question because, you see, the photography projects I love can be made with a phone camera or for instance a disposable camera for 10$? but if you’re asking me what kind of camera you should buy for commercial work like if you wanted to shoot fashion or product photography or I don’t know - weddings and babies? - *shudders* then I’d go with something like canon 6D or something on the same level as this one - is it pretty expensive? yep. Is it still manageable to save up for? also yes. speaking from personal experience here, I’ve already mentioned it before but half a year of working as a barista at a coffee shop got me a canon 5D mark iii so everything is scientifically proven by me, all trustworthy information and such.
my advice is this - ditch the kit/starter lens that usually comes with the camera, just buy the body and one good fixed lens (fixed means it has no zoom, forget about that) it will teach you how to move a lot while shooting and not just stay rooted to the spot because your eye has to get used to finding interesting angles no matter what you shoot. my personal recommendation would be a canon 50mm f/1.4 (not 1.8, I know it’s cheaper but no).
also to be fair you can start making photographs with anything - developing an artistic eye is much more important than having an expensive camera, so if you have any option, be it your phone or your granddad’s old film camera - start shooting with that!
