i am gonna shut up

I am really tired yall.

Lemme just preface this with saying that I am a writer. I have been writing for most of my life. I have taken actual classes about writing and about what fiction can offer you, me, and people as a whole. I have won an award for something that I wrote. I know and love fiction, be it in written form, graphic novels, or film. It is all so good and complex and it’s something I am passionate about. That said, let’s get into this.

A good majority of the discourse that goes on in most of the fandoms I’m in stem from the idea that violence and forbidden sexual acts in fiction will encourage those actions in reality. It is important to know, firstly, that the only time this happens is when a person is immature enough or not mentally healthy enough to distinguish reality from fiction. Growing up, my parents would often stop horror movies (back when I first started watching them) to ask me questions. To be fair, they were pretty shitty people, but in this one aspect, they were so good about making sure I knew this difference. “You know this is just a movie, right? None of the stuff on the tv is real.” They’d assure before continuing the film.

It’s not real.

Now, half of the stuff I read or watched back then was nowhere near pushing boundaries or making me think critically about society or whatever. However, I knew that what I watched wasn’t real. It was images on a screen. If I don’t like what I’m seeing, I can walk away. It doesn’t have to affect me, personally,  unless I let it.

Now, lets circle back. School. College. I took a writing class that used this book:

Granted, it was a screenwriting class and most of the chapters were about various script formats, but the beginning chapters focused on why we write and why we make the stories we do.

It had a section in it describing how human needs and desires are met through fiction. It detailed those needs in a list. This list:

Please draw your attention to the ones on the list that say that fictions helps people to:

Be purged of unpleasant emotions

To have vicarious but controlled emotional experiences

To confront, in a controlled situation, the horrible and terrible

To explore taboo subjects without guilt

Just because you personal don’t need various forms of ‘taboo’ media, doesn’t mean that others don’t. Media, in all of its forms, is a way for people to explore things safely. It’s an outlet that doesn’t harm anyone and it offers the creator and viewer/reader a safe way of exploring the complexities of situations (or in some cases relationships) that these people do not want to be involved in irl. Because we can distinguish reality from fiction. Because none of us are going out killing people or getting into abusive relationships or fucking our sibling.

While being critical of the media we consume is important and it is vital to dissect the whys of the media being created, there is a line between creating open discussion about these taboos, about the society and personal experiences that makes one need these outlets, and verbally abusing and harassing strangers.

If you want to create a dialogue about media or a ship you don’t agree with, fine. Talk about it. Dissect it. Really dig deep into the human condition and the psychology behind these outlets, but don’t shame people for them to the point of telling them to kill themselves or telling them they are human garbage or what the fuck ever.

Fiction isn’t always meant to be picturesque. It’s not always going to be SFW. If that isn’t your cup of tea, then great. Stop going into the tags of things that make you feel unhealthy. You do you. Keep yourself safe. Stop continuously exposing yourself to content that you can’t swallow. To keep getting involved, to keep harassing people, to keep abusing strangers shows that you don’t give a damn about the content. You need an excuse to bully someone else and indulge in holier-than-thou circle jerks with other people who also have no sense of what fiction is for.

i kinda need a fic where Noora takes Isak and Even to her yoga class and Isak is actually really good at it and enjoys it and Even is all like “I’m to tall for this shit, the earth seems too far I am an artist goddamit, downward dog yourself hoe, nope I am never doing this again ever”

Imagine lingering kisses, getting hotter, tongues, hands, grinding...

excuse me i just woke up

listen i mean yes i think about this all the time but listen

just thighs resting on thighs and the slow drag of hips, fingers sinking into those broad shoulders. hot breath huffing against cheeks and the slow push and drag of hips, grinding slow, breath catching, magnus’s goatee rubbing the corner of alec’s mouth as he moans against his cheek.

all of that body heat starting to eclipse them, that pressure, pulsing, heartbeat through their bodies and fucking sweet friction, fingers sinking into flesh. before alec knows it there’s this shift and his back hits the damn couch, moans caught between lips, thighs tight around him tugging all that weight closer.

“alexander.” spilled down his throat with kisses over that deflect rune and magnus’s hips pushing, leaving alec sinking his fingers in as deep as he can, blunt nails scraping skin.

Owari no Seraph Headcanons

-Vampires click their top fangs against their bottom ones when they’re nervous. It’s usually super quiet and humans typically can’t hear them, but other vampires can

-They make this sort of rattling hiss when threatened or angry, kinda like a rattlesnake mixed with a cat. If they’re hurt when they’re hissing, they’ll shriek

-Their bottom fangs are spurs that hook into the flesh of their victem, anchoring them in and making moving difficult. Because venom production starts right before they bite, these spurs usually have a thin coating on them that numbs them to the victem, unless the bite was intentionally done without venom, which SERIOUSLY hurts and is usually something done in fighting instead of hunting because a screaming, thrashing human is difficult to drink from even with super strength

-Their claws (we sometimes see Ferid and Krul with their claws out when they’re fighting or angry, you can catch them if you watch close enough) slide out over their ordinary nails and are tough enough to dig into rock without breaking. Some vampires like to paint them in their free time (fucking Ferid with his purple-ass claws is evidence for this headcanon)

-They’re somewhat desensitized to pain. Minor injuries don’t bother them at all, and major injuries are more of a shock thing than anything else. This is because their healing abilities mean they don’t need to be careful with their injuries, as long-term healing isn’t really a thing. Therefore, the pain reflex has been mostly deactivated as feeling pain on a human level would be more of a crux than anything

-They’re mostly visual and sound-based predators, and hunt like big cats (based off their pouncing reflex). This means that they can do that thing where they can hold their head perfectly still even when the rest of their body is moving. And yes, they probably do the butt-wiggling

-Based off their ability to apparently run on the fucking walls and ceilings if they so wished (like in the first opening), their ankles and wrists are probably more flexible than ours and can pivot at angles that would make us scream to maximize their climbing ability (like that one squirrel{?}/lemur {idk I’m not that good at mammals} that can twist its back feet around to climb down trees). They probably also have longer hooked claws on their feet to hang from things so they can grab people preying-mantis style.

-Judging from how most of them seem to have really pale colouring, all of them have a strong adversion to sun (for obvious reasons lmao), the ability to climb on stone/hang from things, and a strong preference for the underground, I’m going to take a gander and say that they’re probably naturally cave dwellers

-They’re naturally solitary predators, and only usually form strong social bonds with people left over from when they are human (even if both are turned, the bond still stays)/the affection between sires and their offspring. This is why they aren’t very emotional; they don’t need it to survive and communicate, like we do. This lone hunter mentality also contributes to the tendancy to think over feeling, and is also why they don’t really care to learn things (because they can usually just figure it out by themselves). Eventually, some vampire went ‘hey, I’m strong by myself, what if instead of competing with other vampires we can team up and pool our reasorces instead of fighting over territory and prey’, and that’s how the kingdoms were formed. Vampires have since learned how to communicate with others and formed their own communication cues, but this is also where the pride and arrogance and splendor came in, because they’re essentially always trying to one-up the other vampires around them, so they eventually just started hoarding shit like dragons to prove themselves to the over vampires (a remnant of their territoriality)

-Their need to consume blood is partially a dietary need, partially magical. The blood provides the nutrients they need to get by, but it’s also a part of the curse that threw them into vampirism: essentially, you cheated death by drinking the life force of other humans (blood), but now that you’re technically supposed to be dead you’re running on borrowed time and *need* to keep stealing the life force of others to lengthen your own time. Because you weren’t supposed to cheat death, if you run out of time (starve/die), you get turned into a demon as punishment. (At least, that’s the basics of it). It takes three days to work the blood completely through the system, (as I headcanon it gets absorbed entirely, since they have only one specific food source), but they’ll still crave or enjoy drinking blood in between neccessary feeding times because it tastes good (like eating your favorite snack: you *can* have it later, but why do so when you can have it *now*) and it revitalizes their lives, giving them a sort of living high

-Vampires have the ability to echolocate if they are sunblinded (as their eyes are the most sensative). They’ll make these sort of throaty, high-frequency clicking noises that allows them to navigate them to a safe place until they are healed again.

-Fledgeling vampires are notoriously bad at learning to control their venom, and their progenitor usually gives them a few tips after they’ve drank from them for the first time because they have a higher resistance to vampire venom than humans. Fledgelings are also really bad at learning how to control their jumps and landings, so some of their first lessons are more focused on helping them learn to walk and jump again with their fancy joints and catlike reflexes than anything cool

-Then the next lessons are how to be self-sufficiant, like how to mend clothes and items and shit because no vampire wants to clean up after another one unless they’re their progenitor or special companion (and most times, not even then)
“When am I gonna learn how to do cool vampire things” “Shut up I’m trying to teach you how to fix your shit now so I don’t have to later”

-Most teaching is done by the progenitor because the most of the other vampires just don’t have the empathy or patience to care for a clumsy newborn who can’t seem to talk without biting themselves

-Sometimes vampires will start dripping venom if they’re anticipating a bite (like salivating) and they have to spit the excess venom out because it tastes bitter. The reason why they drip venom in the first place is to try to coat the rest of their teeth and numb their bite as much as possible so the human doesn’t struggle, but if the biting doesn’t actually happen it just accumulates and then their mouthes taste bad

-They have a rough patch on their tongue that puts pressure on the bite when they’re drinking, helping to increase the blood flow more than just the blood thinner in their venom. They usually press down, gather a mouthful of blood, pull back as they swallow, then press back down again to collect more, which must feel really frickin weird for the bite victem

-Their abilities to hiss, scream, and click makes being multilingual easy, which is why they can communicate with vampires across the world with little problem

Old-time vampire duels were usually fought with claws and dry-biting at necks and shoulders until one of them was killed or forced into submission

-The younger vampires are the most terrifying because they remember less of their humanity, making them more ‘purely’ vampire

Baring their fangs when fighting is an automatic reflex. Merely flashing the fangs is just aggression, whereas gaping the mouth open and baring all four fangs hints that they’re going for the kill

Because of their blood drinking and pouncing-attack style hunting, vampires have a greater range of movement in their necks that allow to look at things from many different angles and keep the movement without strain, like owls

-This is more of an observation than a headcanon, but all of the Michaela trait carriers seem to have a blood type of O, which also appears to be a delicacy in the vampire world

“Sir a new competitor opened just down the street, that’s the eighteenth one this year.” The sales associate rushed it, carrying boxes upon boxes of AAA batteries. His manager spun around in his chair, his brow furrowed in thought.
“By god.” He muttered, an ominous tone in his voice.
“Sir what do we do?” The young sales associate asked, visibly frightened. The managed stood up and looked down at his employee with sad eyes. A single tear streamed down his cheek as he broke the news.
“There’s nothing we can do.” He said, his voice calm. He knew this day would come. Soon enough, it always happened.
“But, sir.” The sales associate interjected, unwilling to accept defeat.
“Goddammit Jerry!” The manager slammed his fist on the desk on frustration. The sound of millions of batteries cluttered to the floor as Jerry dropped the box.
“There’s nothing we can do! If we lower our prices anymore we’d being paying people to take our stock. We just can’t survive. Not with 18 competitors. We’re finished.”
A moment of silence filled the room.
“Sir.” Jerry said quietly, cutting through the tense atmosphere.
“Just go.” The manager demanded pointing to the door.
“Sir, I-”
“Leave! Get out! I don’t want to hear it!” The manager bellowed. With a curt nod, the young man left the room, closing the door behind him. The manager sat down in his chair and pulled a picture out of his desk. In it he saw his mother smiling back at him.
“Oh Ma,” he said, tears falling freely from his eyes, “what am I gonna do?”

5, 12, 33, 42 for Finch!

(From this ask meme!)

Cleanliness habits (personal, workspace, etc.)

For his workspace – moderate. People who think he’s a neat freak are wrong. He isn’t a slob and he doesn’t like his Subway smelling like a subway, but most of his living areas are slightly cluttered with books lying around everywhere, wires running all around him, a dozen screens, random circuit boards, a couple of soldering irons, and there is always at least one screwdriver within easy reach of him at all times. 

When he’s deep in the middle of coding, this can morph into an utter mess of completely random stuff surrounding him that no one except Harold can even keep track of… and no one can quite figure out how or why said random stuff got there either. (Nathan and Arthur once walked into their dorm room to find Harold glaring at a screen with 3 bags of uncooked rice next to him. They quietly turned right back around and fled.) 

When he’s not in the middle of a coding marathon, Harold is the absolute perfect model for personal hygiene. Showers daily, brushes twice a day, remembers to floss, nails neat and trim… the whole nine yards. Also, Harold smells nice. Always. It doesn’t matter if he’s been sitting at a desk for 3 days coding, he still manages to smell nice at the end of it. It’s a gift. 

Favorite book genre?

Well we have our usual classical choices of course – Harold can talk about Charles Dickens even when he’s high and that’s the first thing he noticed about Grace, he told TM to read Dante’s Inferno, and we definitely can’t forget science fiction because we know he has read Asimov (x) –

But Harold also adored murder mysteries when he was tiny. He had an entire pile of Agatha Christie novels on his bedside table that he read before going to bed. He liked putting together the clues and solving every single murder before the grand reveal. 

Concept of home and family?

Harold has been running from the govt. since he was a teenager and he has so many different identities that the concept of turning a (safe)house into a home is a rather foreign concept for him. Nonetheless, the farmhouse in Iowa from when he was a kid, that one floor of IFT where he accomplished the impossible and built TM, The Library and The Subway and New York in general all count as varying degrees of home.

His concept of family comes entirely from his dad. It’s listening to his dad tell him about birds even though he didn’t know a damn thing about them. It’s Arthur and Nathan laughing hysterically as they pulled off a hack at the Harvard-Yale game. It’s falling in love with Grace and seeing a future with her. Family is sighing in exasperation at feet on his desk, the certain knowledge that John will always come for him, daily arguments and snarking, watching Shaw and Bear playfully wrestle on the floor of his Library, fond kisses on the cheek from someone who kidnapped him twice, going for a picnic together, and walking in to what he’s still sure was some weird kinky sex scene involving bear costumes. Family is TM, no matter how hard he tried to deny it at the beginning.


As you know, I collect rare books, Mr. Reese, 180g vinyl, and a Xerox Alto when I can find one. 

– Harold Finch (Get Carter, 1x09)

He also enjoys watching baseball, hacking into NASA so that he can get all the latest space updates, and running (back when he could fuck this is painful gah).
