for @forestpenguin​ for the prompt: i see you carrying around a bowl of dog food and calling for your dog and, let’s be honest, i definitely think this is trap but on the other hand there is the potential to pet a dog at the end. so i stop to help you and you’re so relieved as we spend the next several hours searching for your dog until we finally give up and i take you home since you’re inconsolable only to find your dog asleep on your fucking porch wtf.

in which Cassian’s adopted ex-racer greyhound, K2-SO is awful, willful, misbehaved, and the light of his life. When K2 goes missing, Cassian frantically searches the neighborhood, his desperate calls awakening Bodhi, his neighbor, who offers to help. Just as Cassian has given up hope and gotten drawn and surly, Bodhi walks him back home - and lo and behold, K2 has been scratching at the front door and nearly knocks Bodhi out bounding into Cassian’s arms.

Fanfiction Appreciation Post: Haikyuu!! (KuroTsuki)

I am super grateful for all the wonderful people who put all their hard work into writing fanfiction beautifully. So, since Fandom Fic Rec Days are coming soon, I’m going to make a couple of posts dedicated to my favorite fanfics! I have too many in Haikyuu!!, so there are subsets based on the main relationship in the fic. Enjoy!

(These are in no particular order)

Days without you are horrible by boy101 (T; 1.1k; English; Complete)

Tsukishima comes home late after a shit day at work and mentally beats himself up for it. Kuroo’s there to make things a little more OK again.

Comments: I’m not even sure why, but I loved this one so much when I first read it, and sometimes I go back and reread it just for the heartwarming feeling it gives me.

What Are You Doing New Year’s Eve? by MelissaWritesStuff (@melissawritesstuff) (G; 6.4k; English; Complete)

“You don’t have anyone to kiss at midnight, do you?”

Tetsurou could sense Kei tense up beside him as he hesitated. “…No. I don’t.”

Tetsurou took a deep breath before looking up at Kei, and Kei’s expression was impossible to read, so Tetsurou just said it. “Would you mind if I kissed you?”

Comments: OMG ONE OF MY FAVORITES IN THE “GETTING TOGETHER” CATEGORY. Just, all that pining, and how they finally, finally realize how the other feels. Ugh, my heart.

xiv by ronan  (@kasbrekker) (M; 7.2k; English; Complete)

He counts the many moles on Tsukki’s unblemished skin and kisses the ones on his back. He’s always joking about them composing a constellation.

“This one looks like Scorpius’,” he lied once, tracing a random pattern between Tsukki’s shoulder blades.

Comments: I love the well-done details in their moments and the delicate fashion in which this fic handles things like coming out. Sexual orientation is difficult to explain as it is, but romantic orientation is a whole other uncharted territory. Also omg the plant.

Two Week Fold by surveycorpsjean  (@zanimez) (E; 28k; 7 chapters; English; Complete)

Tsukishima is a blackjack dealer in Las Vegas.

A gorgeously rich businessman keeps stopping by his table- cat eyes so dark, swirls of interest dragging where ever they look.

“I need something pretty to take with me to the match.” He purrs, “And you certainly are pretty.”

Comments: I tend to avoid AU’s that are canon-divergent, but goddamn this one just stole my heart. Amazing!

to the beat of my heart by kittebasu (chanyeol) (E; 68k; 2 chapters; English; Complete)

Former boyband member and acting idol Tsukishima Kei’s continued entanglement with Nekoma’s lead singer Kuroo Tetsurou is just a series of missed steps in choreography he can’t quite master. (It doesn’t help at all that Kuroo Tetsurou makes a habit of constantly changing the music.)

Comments: Again, I usually don’t read fics with AU’s that are canon-divergent, but this one just blew me away. Incredible fic. 

This list is in no way complete. These are just five of the several fics that have given me the feels, warmed my heart, made me melt, brightened my day, and/or inspired me. Even if those fics aren’t up here, I really appreciate the hard work of all those writers.

Stay tuned for appreciation posts of fics with other Haikyuu!! pairings, and for appreciation posts of fics for other fandoms!

[TRANS] Shukan Josei - Main Interview

Q. “You just released your first ‘BEST OF’ Album, ‘THE BEST OF BTS,’ which covered all of your activities in Japan for two and a half years. Are there any songs that deeply attached to?”
JH: For me it’s “FOR YOU.” It was our first original Japanese song, so it’s very meaningful to me.
SG: For me it’s the Japanese version of “I NEED U.” I like how the Japanese lyrics are slightly different than the Korean lyrics. 

Q. “Within the Japanese activities until now, what has left an impression (on you)?”
J: This is not exactly what you are talking about, but… during the last song of a concert, I always look all around the venue. During that moment, I feel something that isn’t quite happiness nor sadness, it becomes this feeling where I am unable to say anything. That lingering feeling during the ending left the strongest impression. Every concert truly leaves me warm hearted.
JM: Our first showcase (December 2013) was in front of about 500 fans. As we did more performances, our venue has grown as well. Now, we have been able to meet lots of fans through our arena tours. Every time, I am very grateful for everything that has happened.
SG: I was also super happy when we were able to participate in large music festivals such as Summer Sonic and a-nation!

Q. “At the 2016 Mnet Asian Music Awards” you won the grand prize (Daesang), given to the ‘Artist of the Year.’ We saw the tears up on stage, what did you feel then?”
SG: When we heard the announcement, I started to remember everything we achieved from when we were trainees 7 years ago. The tough times, the happy times. So many memories were going through my head and my heart was full of emotion. Before I realized it, I was crying. I couldn’t stop the tears…
JK: I was really grateful to our ARMYs. That’s why, whatever happened, I didn’t want to cry on stage, but I saw the fans and couldn’t help but cry because they have worked hard with us and supported us. I was so grateful that I cried. I am really…, we are really lucky.
RM: We were so happy that we went to eat dinner right after arriving back in Korea from Hong Kong! We ordered pasta and pizza.
JH: Since the day after we won the award was also Jin-hyung’s birthday,
V: We were able to celebrate both (at the same time).
J: I ate suuuper delicious food (serious face)!
JH: While we ate, we all reminisced.
JM: It was fun.

Q. “Apart from the award, BTS was the first Korean artist to place 26th on the American Billboard Chart and placed 1st for the iTunes Chart for 27 countries. 2016 must be a year you’ll never forget.”
SG
: When we go to countries like Brazil, which are on the opposite side of the world from Korea, and feel the love from fans in those countries, I feel that we are really benefiting from this age in time.
V: But…, I want to be more love in Japan as well! (he then made a dog with his fingers and pretended to bite the arm of Jungkook who was sitting next to him)
JK: (As if this was familiar (to Jungkook), while escaping from V [he said]) That’s right, we really think this.
RM: It’s really interesting. When we perform overseas, fans of completely different nationalities and languages sing our songs with us.
V: It’s amazing.
RM: This year will be the start of a new “time” that is different from before, for both us and the fans.
JM: The truth is, right now, there is a performance that we are thinking of. One which will look cool to anyone and shows us enjoying the stage. We will continue running towards that goal.
JK: I want to grow more! In order for that growth to become our weapon.

Q. “Continuous hard work made the BTS who they are today. By the way, what is something that has and has not changed about BTS since debut?”
SG
: Something that hasn’t changed since debut is our mindset that singing and performance are the top priorities. Even though there are things each member wants to try, we think that we should first think about the goals of the group and what we should aim to be as a group. I think that is one of our strong points (as well).
RM
: Another one is practice. First, practice. Second, practice. Recently, things that used to take 10 will now only take 5. I think that we’ve become more efficient.

Q. “Seeing your performances, the dances are so complex, it looks really tiring…”
SG: (serious face) To be honest, it is tiring.
BTS: (lol)
RM
: But that intense practice is what made us who we are today, so we can’t stop.
V: Don’t stop~!

Q. “I want to recommend that you guys stop and rest sometimes.”
SG: Recently, it’s been very difficult because we’ve had to practice tough choreography continuously for many performances. Until around last year, it’s accurate to say that we just pushed through with it. But we realized that that could damage our health, so recently we eat healthier and take supplements to stand on stage while maintaining our health.
JK: We have to increase our endurance.

Q. “We’ll go back to the (previous) topic, but what has changed about you (since debut)?”
V: When we debuted, we didn’t know anything, so we just worked hard at what we were told to do. Now we can express our own opinions and think about what to do next.
JK: Yeah, we’ve now come to think deeply about a lot of things. Rather than say this was a change, it seems that our attitude towards work has matured.
JM: Our feelings towards the stage and our fans have changed as well.
JH: Our growth as humans, in performance, and in how we interact with everyone. So many things have changed, but what has changed most is our internal feelings. It’s as if we’ve accepted and acknowledged that “we are professionals.” Things that are seen by the public and thing that aren’t.
JM: “We are professionals”?… Surely, the way we look has changed a lot too.
RM: When we were trainees, for all of us, our singing, dance, and fashion sense were not refined (lol). But now, I feel like we look a bit more like celebrities. 

Q. “So, from now on you will continue to grow as artists and continue to ‘Attack on Bangtan.’”
J: We will continue to attack!
RM
: We can’t stop now (lol).

#transformationtuesday Today I turned 32. Felt like an appropriate moment to stop and appreciate how much I’ve grown and learned in the last year– How much more comfortable I am with myself and how peaceful my heart feels. Super grateful for my loving and supportive family and friends, and so grateful to finally feel unburdened by lifelong fears and insecurities. Life isn’t always 100% peaches and sunshine (it never is) but I feel like I’m living in color again and living as authentically as possible.

To follow the tradition of “Ed-posts-something-actually-legit-on-april-fools-day”, I want all of my followers to know that I appreciate all of your support and love.

Still blows my mind how many followers and fans I have, I never would’ve imagined I’d get to this level, especially since to this day I still only see myself as… an okay artist at best. Without my followers, my fans, my commissioners, I’d be /nothing/. I have no idea why I always get in this type of mood on April Fool’s Day, but, please, I want you all to know that I am super ultra mega grateful for each and every one of you. 

I’ve been getting a lot of messages lately from creators of all skill and experience levels telling me that I’m their biggest source of inspiration,  as much as that still baffles me. But, I want you all to know that /you/ are my biggest source of inspiration. If I can continue to draw pictures that can at least cause someone to go “hey, this gives me an idea” then my art career is something worth continuing.

So, to prevent sounding too sappy on April Fool’s Day of all days, I just wanna say one more time: thank you all for following and supporting me.

Fanfiction Appreciation Post: Haikyuu!! (KageHina)

I am super grateful for all the wonderful people who put all their hard work into writing fanfiction beautifully. So, since Fandom Fic Rec Days are coming soon, I’m going to make a couple of posts dedicated to my favorite fanfics! I have too many in Haikyuu!!, so there are subsets based on the main relationship in the fic. Enjoy!

Works

sometimes your heart will ache but that doesn’t mean you’re weak by takokun (G; 6.6k; English; Complete)

When Kageyama wakes up he finds tears on his pillow.

Disclaimer: This is endgame HinaYachi, but honestly the KageHina portrayal requires this fic to be in this post too. 

Comments: I NEVER thought I would have one favorite fanfic in all the fanfiction I have read, but this is IT. Every now and then I go back and read it again, and it still makes me feel the way I felt the first time I read it. I cry throughout the whole story now, but honestly, I’m so glad this exists. Thank you, thank you, thank you. 

Painting With Words by iwillstillopenthewindow (@iwillstillopenthewindow(G; 5.1k; English; Complete)

Hinata just can’t seem to write anything these days, until he gets an invitation to an art exhibit.

Comments: I have no words for this one. It’s just such a wonderful piece of art. In fact, the whole series is awesome, if you choose to read it.

and i would say i love you but saying it out loud is hard by calliopinaround (@calliopin-around(T; 1.6k; English; Complete)

No matter how hard he tries, Kageyama thinks, he always ends up like this.

Comments: Just… the simplicity in getting together. I love it when ordinary antics and moments lead to extraordinary developments. 

you’re the wings on my back, and together we conquer the sky by earlgrey_milktea (@puddingcatbae(G; 5.1k; English; Complete)

“Oi. Your turn to make dinner.”
“No, it’s your turn.”
“No way, I made it last night. Remember? We had ramen.”
“Instant ramen. Which doesn’t even count as cooking.”
“I did it in a pot on the stove, so it does count.“
or, kagehina in their twenties;
adulting is an everyday adventure when you’ve got your best friend right there next to you.

Comments: I read this right after I got into a QPR myself (and I got my lovely QPP to read it too), and it just blew my mind. The realistic portrayal, on-point characterization and relationship development, amazing. 

Count by someonestolemyshoes (@someone-stole-my-shoes(G; 5k; English; Complete)

Kageyama’s first kiss was with a volleyball.

He was six, and the smooth, cool leather stung where it smacked to his mouth. It tasted like dirt, like dust and gym shoes and a little bit like sweat, too, and it stole the breath from his lungs and took his two front teeth away with it.

It…probably doesn’t count as a kiss, honestly, because balls don’t even have lips to kiss with, but it made him fall in love with volleyball the way real kisses make boys fall in love with girls on the playground, so Kageyama thinks it’s probably good enough.

It didn’t matter that it hurt - that it bled, bust his nose and ripped his gums and stained his mouth in red and blue and purple - what mattered was that it was his first kiss, his best kiss, and nothing was ever, ever going to change that.

His second kiss is with Hinata.

Comments: I don’t even know why or how I came to like this one, but I do. Maybe it has to do with the fact that I counted the kisses I received just like Kageyama does here.

Series

love and victory by bigspoonnoya (2 works; 36k; English; Complete)

Comments: This entire series just… gave me the feels so bad. Gosh, if you ever need lots of angst but also happy tears and you like the college AU and have enough time on your hands to read a ton, this series is for you. Actually, even if you don’t have time, this series is worth all the procrastination in the world. (Be sure to check the warnings on each work first; I haven’t put them up here.)

This list is in no way complete. These are just a handful of the several fics that have given me the feels, warmed my heart, made me melt, brightened my day, and/or inspired me. Even if those fics aren’t up here, I really appreciate the hard work of all those writers.

Stay tuned for appreciation posts of fics with other Haikyuu!! pairings, and for appreciation posts of fics for other fandoms!

Happy Mother’s Day!! 💕👑

Ahh, what can I say about my little Frenchie? This little light skinned lady has done so much for me and I feel like I can never do enough to thank her for everything. She and my dad had me when they were really young and they’ve both done a bomb ass job raising me but we’re not here to talk about my dad. That’s what Father’s Day is for 😂 My mom constantly drives me crazy with her goofiness and her motherliness but she’s also the reason why I haven’t gone bat shit crazy over the past 21 years. She’s gotten me through a lot of things and I am super grateful. She always has my back and I don’t think I could’ve dreamt of or wished for a greater mom. Thanks for all you’ve done Ara! 💕

Happy Mother’s Day to all the moms out there, existing and soon-to-be! You all deserve the world today and always 💕

anonymous asked:

may i ask why you like phil so much??

ok let me just take a deep breath….. alright here we go

the first time i saw phil in 2011 my thoughts were something along the lines of “he has such a unique look, he’s so cool, i love his voice.”
you’d think i’d remember my first phil video, but alas, my memory fails me. all i can remember is a flash of dark hair, icy eyes, and a feeling of wonder.
i started as a casual fan like most of us do, but with each video i got more and more invested in his content and i wanted to keep up with whatever he was doing. i wasn’t even sure why i had such an intense infatuation with him, he just.. made me feel. good.
fast forward a couple of years, phil became my safe space. the warm atmosphere that surrounds him always helped to relax me. his kind nature was sweet and refreshing, his intelligence motivated me, his creativity inspired me, his sense of humor lifted my mood, his laugh made my heart soar, virtually everything about him made me feel lighter.
and now here i am. owner of a phan blog, completely invested in phil and his endeavors. he continues to put me at ease when i need a reason to calm down and i continue to love him with every fiber of my being. i am forever grateful for him.

mandymooremm: This was from nearly one year ago, when @nbcthisisus was picked up to series and I walked the red carpet with these guys for the first time (where we collectively scratched our heads trying to explain the concept of our show without revealing anything). I can’t even begin to comprehend how much life has changed over the course of these past 12 months but I sure am super grateful. Can’t wait to celebrate 2 more seasons with the entire cast next week. #bestjobever #thisisus

Fanfiction Appreciation Post: Haikyuu!! (TsukkiYama)

I am super grateful for all the wonderful people who put all their hard work into writing fanfiction beautifully. So, I’m going to make a couple of posts dedicated to my favorite fanfics! I have too many in Haikyuu!!, so there are subsets based on the main relationship in the fic. Enjoy!

(These are in no particular order.)

Works:

Because, Friends Hug by SheenaChan (M; 39k; English; Complete)

“Something was irritating.

Well, for Kei Tsukishima most things in life were pretty irritating, but this particular thing, that had been weighing on him for the longest time, was just about enough to make him snap.”

((Or, Yamaguchi gets Tsukishima to watch this sports’ drama he’s been really into lately, and that somehow leads to the most heated summer of Tsukishima’s life.))

Comments: I found this fic a while back and then lost it and had to find it again before making this post because this appreciation post would have been incomplete without this fic. Absolutely incredible work of art; this fic is a lovely and pleasant blend of humor, pining, romance, smut, and angst. 

These Words You Don’t Hear by ohhello (E; 31k; English; Complete)

Tadashi is convinced entering into his third year at Karasuno means that he is one year closer to losing what he holds most dear: his team, his friends, and most importantly his daily moments with Kei. While Tadashi wrestles with his fear of lasts, Kei struggles with how to offer him firsts.

Comments: One of the best fics in the “Getting Together” category for this pairing. I love it when fics keep the characters true to their canon selves and when the plot is canon-compliant, so this was a must-read for me. 

Piano Strings by surveycorpsjean @zanimez (E; 13k; English; Complete)

Yamaguchi is in love with his piano teacher.

Okay, no. You’ve got to understand, this isn’t a crush. Crushes are for the weak. Crushes are for those who pass by the football jock in the hallway and giggle. Okay, no. No, no . This isn’t a crush.

This is like, a goddamn sickness.

Comments: I don’t read a lot of canon-divergent stuff, but this was absolutely worth it. The pining, oh man, the pining. The feelings are so well-articulated that I could see everything through Yamaguchi’s eyes.

Moongazing by ZephyrCamida (E; 30k; English; Complete)

Yamaguchi stands paralyzed, cement at his feet as amber eyes pierce him – infiltrate his mind and his sights and his senses. His frantic space. Trapped and transfixed on the sensation of digits cradling his nape, he helplessly sways forward.

Tsukishima parts his lips, lashes low, “I know what you want, Yamaguchi.”

Comments: OMG a lot of this is smut but everything has been written so well and the expression is so high-caliber that I had to give this fic a mention. This story has great pacing to leave the reader feeling satisfied at the end. 

Second Best by squidmemesinc (M; 17k; English; Complete)

Maybe the best way to get over Tsukki is to dive headfirst into someone else. But that’s not his only motivation. He genuinely likes Oikawa, too. Given a little time, he might like him as much as Tsukki. You can love more than one person, after all. This, in all likelihood, would just be speeding along the inevitable.

Comments: It’s true, I was wary of this fic at first because it had OiYama (and you’re probably wondering why this is in the TsukkiYama recs, but trust me on this one), but once I read it, gosh. I love how the characters’ choices make sense and keep them true to their personalities; kudos to the author for writing everyone so well.

Series: 

Rivers And Roads by BluecoloredDreams (79k; English; 2 works)

Comments: This series is not complete, but it’s so wonderful and the works in it are definitely worth a read! Do check the warnings on each fic before reading. 

This list is in no way complete. These are just a handful of the several fics that have given me the feels, warmed my heart, made me melt, brightened my day, and/or inspired me. Even if those fics aren’t up here, I really appreciate the hard work of all those writers.

The two of us have changed and been through a lot over the last 5 years! I still remember rushing my dad to the pet store after soccer practice to go pick Nimrod up and being so shaky I could barely hold the container. She was a small bright orange baby hiding underneath a pile of shredded paper in a tiny deli dish, and I was in love her her instantly. I was so scared to hold her the first time because she was so tiny and fragile looking. and then I was so shocked at how soft she was, and she weighed practically nothing. She’s still super soft, but no longer feels weightless haha

I am so grateful to have this little potato in my life, and incredibly grateful for her full recovery and the support we had on here last year. I’m sad I can’t see her today, but my mom promised to sing her happy birthday when she goes to turn on her lights! Happy 5th “birthday” Nimmers <3

Last Spring one of my good friends and I headed downtown super early so she could snap some shots of my Five cosplay. I never got around to posting them here because my life went into overdrive at that point. This costume means a lot to me because it was the first one I made from scratch. There are so many things I would change about it now looking back and I don’t wear it anymore because it was terribly uncomfortable, but whatevs. Anyway I am having trouble with motivating myself to finish my SWC cosplays so looking at a complete costumes (and looking at how much I have grown) helps a little haha. Hannah unfortunately doesn’t have a page for me to link to but I am super grateful to her for doing this for me!

Cosplay: Five- Zankyou No Terror/Terror in Resonance

Fanfiction Appreciation Post: Haikyuu!! (Poly Ships)

I am super grateful for all the wonderful people who put all their hard work into writing fanfiction beautifully. So, I’m going to make a couple of posts dedicated to my favorite fanfics! I have too many in Haikyuu!!, so there are subsets based on the main relationship in the fic. However, since there aren’t as many poly fics to rec, I’m consolidating all poly relationships here (the pairings will be mentioned for each fic). Enjoy!

the numerous assorted issues in the life of tsukishima kei by symphorine @asexualkurootetsurou (T; 35k; English; Complete)

Relationship: Hinata Shouyou/Kageyama Tobio/Tsukishima Kei

Tsukishima Kei’s life is getting very difficult. He would start a revolution against fate and the universe if he wasn’t so painfully aware it’s entirely his own fault. He’s starting to think he secretely hates himself, honestly. Or maybe he angered some deity, somehow. Or it’s karma from a previous life. Whatever it is, he’s fucked.

(Yamaguchi just thinks he’s scared.)

Comments: This is just incredible. I enjoyed it so much, gosh, i can’t express how much. Such an incredible contribution to the tag.

High Dive by BlueColoredDreams (M; 19k; English; Chapters 4/?)

Relationship: Tsukishima Kei/Yachi Hitoka/Yamaguchi Tadashi

Kei thinks that he can handle being roommates with Tadashi and being in love with him at the same time. He can’t, but he’ll take what he can get, even if it’s just being friends with benefits.

Tadashi and Hitoka want to give him more.

Comments: OMG this was so good. My heart ached for Kei multiple times, and I just loved how the plot has been built up.

Mannequin Men by surveycorpsjean @zanimez (M; 76k; English; Complete)

Relationship: Akaashi Keiji/Bokuto Koutarou/Kuroo Tetsurou/Tsukishima Kei

The modeling world is full of hungry wolves, constantly clambering over the other, snarling and desperate. They fight, and they kill, trampling over anything in their path.

In this case, Akaashi fell in love with the wolves.

Comments: This was a rollercoaster of emotions. I laughed, cried, ‘aww’d a lot throughout this one. 

happy mother’s day! by MissMairin @anyhao (T; 2.8k; English; Complete)

Relationship: Hinata Shouyou/Kageyama Tobio/Tsukishima Kei/Yamaguchi Tadashi

As captain of Karasuno Volleyball Club, Yamaguchi had changed a lot since his first year. He finally mastered the float serve. Puberty was gracious to him. He had gotten piercings and tattoos. Most importantly, though, he had picked up a new skill. His maternal instincts.

Tsukishima has never liked being touched.

A pat on the back, a hug from a relative, a friend nudging his ribs - it’s an invasion of his personal space, and he hates it. It’s awkward, uncomfortable. A reminder of how different he is, because normal people seem to like it, and that’s just not him.

That is, until the day Tsukishima finally learns that maybe being touched isn’t so bad after all - at least, not when it comes to them.

Comments: One of the best getting together fics with poly ships. Lovely.

Though no one knows how or why, at midnight on a person’s 16th birthday, they get writing on their wrist, almost like a tattoo. This writing, whatever it says, has something to do with your soulmate. It’s usually something like the first thing they say to you after it appears, or an inside joke you two will have, maybe a phrase they say a lot. Simply a push in the right direction, fate’s little nudge-nudge wink-wink about what future you have in store. This is the story of how Tsukishima Kei got three soulmates.

Comments: This was so funny but also really cute, and I love what Kei’s first words to the others are.

This list is in no way complete. These are just a handful of the several fics that have given me the feels, warmed my heart, made me melt, brightened my day, and/or inspired me. Even if those fics aren’t up here, I really appreciate the hard work of all those writers.

Stay tuned for appreciation posts of fics with other Haikyuu!! pairings, and for appreciation posts of fics for other fandoms!
