i cried so much the first time i read it

insomniaticfrenchtoast asked:

So after having finally read all of BOTWOT, i find myself with simultaneously too many words and not enough. You have written a fic that captured my heart and soul completely. I laughed, i cried (alot) and i even felt a bit bad for Gaster at the end. I feel the Mercy ending really was the best ending this fic could've had and kinda fit with the whole Pacifist ending that set this off in the first place. You let everyone have their moments of heroism and there are so many bits of this fic (1/2)

which translation of the brick would you recommend?

I’d highly recommend both the two translations that I’ve read. I’ve read both the Charles E. Wilbour translation, and the Norman Denny translation. :) 

The Wilbour translation was the first english translation of the brick done in 1862, the same year the French brick was written. This version was the first one I read so I love it most. This translation is a much more direct translation, cutting a lot less than the Denny version. This one has a lot of beautiful prose and is much closer to the French Version. Also some of the lines from the musical are actually from this translation. I noticed while reading it that some of the lines from Javert’s Suicide are nearly exactly the same as the brick, which was really interesting! :) This version is extremely poetic, beautiful, and emotional. I cried multiple times reading it. The main issue some people may find with it is that the English is very old fashioned, as it was written in 1862. It can take some time to get used to the language but once you get into the rhythm, it’s a fantastic translation! Would highly recommend it!

The Denny translation is also really great! It is a bit more streamlined though. Not a lot is cut or anything but some things are shortened. This translation was written in 1976 so the language is much more modern. It’s a bit easier to understand at first glance, and in my opinion, required a bit less concentration. Though, I found this one lost some of the prose that the Brick is known for. This one took a little bit liberty with the translations, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing. I found this one a bit more humorus. For example, the ‘be serious/i am wild’ moment in this one is translated to ‘be serious/i am madly serious’ even though je suis farouche literally translates to i am wild/savage. 

In conclusion, both are really great. Both hold very true to the characters, jam packed with emotion, prose, and puns! If you’re looking for a more thorough and poetic read, I suggest the Wilbour translation, but if you want a slightly simpler, more modern version, I suggest the Denny! Both are awesome. So either way, I hope you’ll enjoy your Brick experience! Thanks for asking!

Carnation, locust, azalea :)

carnation: If I handed you a concert ticket right now, who would you want to be the performer?

Brandi Carlile. I would love to see her live, she’s incredible. 

locust: What was your favorite book as a child?

this might be kind of a cop out but probably Harry Potter? I was really young when the first few came out but I remember my mom reading me the first one and then reading the rest on my own because I loved it so much. 

ooh and Once Upon a Marigold!! I read that one in fourth grade and it’s just such a cute romantic fairytale, a really sweet book. 

azalea: What’s a movie you cried while watching?

I cry at so many movies. Atonement, Perks of Being a Wallflower, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Pt. 2, Return of the King, Rent, just so many. One time I was pmsing super hard and I cried at Quest for Camelot. I really just cry a lot.

[ ♛ ] send me a url and i’ll tell you the following;

my opinion on;

character in general: Ok so Days was the first Kingdom Hearts game I ever played so I had NO idea what was going on (and it’s probably why I love the Org so much) but- I cried over Xion? So many times I was ugly sobbing when she ‘died’ I couldn’t even read the subtitles. Then I read the Days manga and SHE’S SO CUTE she frickin named Pluto ‘Orangey’ and makes him a bed labelled ‘The Orangey Than Never Was’ but- She’s not just a sweet little beansprout, she’s got so much more going on and she feels, she was made from memory that was it she wasn’t really made like the other Nobodies she wasn’t really a person beforehand and that doesn’t stop her from being so damn human and deep  and I should stop writing now
how they play them: So damn wonderfully. Alex’s portrayal captures everything about Xion I love, and I just- Xig’s attached to this kid. She’s savage when she needs to be and a human cotton puff other times and we both just wanna keep Xion safe from the evils of this world. Not that she really needs our protection, but hey. Offer stands.

the mun: ALEX IS SO WONDERFUL I NEED TO FRICKIN’ SCREAM. We seriously clicked instantly WE HAVE ALREADY PASSED THE POINT OF SCREAMING HEADCANONS AND PLOT IDEAS AT EACH OTHER AT THREE IN THE MORNING AND THIS BLOG ISN’T EVEN A FULL MONTH OLD. Alex is a super talented writer who kicks off a huge variety of muses flawlessly and reads Braig like a book and has stolen my fragile meme heart; She’s kind and wonderful and so creative and I just– Dan alex ur hobb ies

do i;

follow them: Yessir
rp with them: If I didn’t I’d have to go to meme jail and I ain’t goin’ back to prison
want to rp with them: kicks down door puts door back kicks it down again HOLY HELL DO I
ship their character with mine: Only platonically cause major age gap BUT MY GOD THEY ARE THE WEIRDEST FRICKIN FAMILY AND XIG WOULD DO TERRIBLE THINGS TO KEEP XION HAPPY ABOUT NOW HE’S IMPRINTED ON HER LIKE A SLIGHTLY-OVERSIZED EMPATHY-CHALLENGED TRIGGER-HAPPY DUCKLING HAVE FUN XION

what is my;

overall opinion: Cartwheels down the street on a segway with this playing

Dear Katie, I finally found you! I remember reading Olicity fic Felicity's Ghost a long time ago and it was the first time ever I sobbed uncontrollably over a fic! A just re-read it and even I knew what it was about I cried as hard as the last time. Your writing style is beautiful and you did so amazing with the characters! This is definitely Top 5 Olicity oneshots I've ever read and I don't know what else I can say except Thank You for this outstanding work! xoxo

Hey there! Glad you found me :) Thank you so much for loving my sad little tale!! I don’t know what was wrong with me in the beginning of my Olicity shipping that I wanted to write super angst for these two haha Maybe because I knew in my heart that they would DEFINITELY become canon–and look at where we are now!!

Thank you so much for the kind words about my writing :) xoxo

1, 8 :] congrats on your face btw, you're stunning!

Talk about the first time you watched your favorite movie.
I actually do not have a favorite movie so far in life, so I’m going to cheat and talk about my favorite book instead; the Host! I first read it while I was at a beach house on Little Gasparilla Island. I still remember it. It was the most magical experience. It stormed a lot that time we went, so I was inside a lot, staying up until midnight just reading that book, with the smell of salt everywhere and One Republic and Owl City songs playing. I felt so much. When I finally finished it, I almost cried.  And I had no idea what to do with my life. And then I read it again.

Talk about the thing you are most proud of.
I don’t know if there’s any one specific thing that I’m proud of, like one tangible achievement, but I’m really proud of myself for trying to stay positive and keep living as best as I can. Just getting through what I’ve been through is an accomplishment. 

Thank you, you are so kind! Congrats on being the sweetest!

don’t think i cried even once the first time i read the silm. and now, after rereading the first 10 pages i’m in tears only by thinking of it

Hi Maria its jay. I just wanted to thank you and say that it was nice to have someone to talk to that just gave me a suggestion but didn't try to fix me or treat me like I was broken. You don't know what that means to me. I mean when I read your message I actually cried tears of happiness for the first time in a while cause it showed that someone could actually see me as a whole person and not someone broken. So thank you so much and I might get a dog maybe that will help. Can we keep talking?

Hello Jay

You aren’t broken so there is no reason for me to treat you as though you are. You are experiencing difficulties and that is what I am here to help you with.

Hopefully a pet will help. 

And of course we can keep talk for however long you need.

Maria Hill.

This is gonna be pointless but oh well, i don’t remember the first time i heard about 1d but it was through my younger sister, i remember how in 2012 i took interest in the two boyband members who seemed to always be together and i went through the whole spending hours on youtube videos watching proofs and all that.

First thing first are the fics(i hope Alice is proud lmao) i think the first fic i read was about some fifty birthdays together and i cried, i even read on wattpad (please everyone forgive me) but now i know better 😌

In the beginning I went through the elenour trinity thing and i was like is this real is there three of them lmao, i remember going through chokeblock vids (i dont know if the names correct and apparently shes an anti now so.. ) and having so much fun at the time.

The first blog that i started going through was @bromanceshmomance and i didnt follow at first and i kept getting the url wrong and i would be confused on how many m’s i wrote. She was the first person i followed on my old blog and the first on this one because she is the only url i remembered correctly(ha!) but i always were an anon larrie (exept when i took a long time off tumblr), i kept contacting larries on anon, especially @stylesforstiles who is the funniest btw, i saw how larries were bullied (and still are) and i was like nah even though i wouldnt care for their opinion but it was hard to see how others are treated and its so unfair you know (who am i talking to?).

So now after the suing thing i was like what i want to meet all the larries lol sue me and here i am 😊 anyway, larry is the realest.

WHY THE HELL WAS THAT REMOVED?? omg i would’ve read the shit outta that ;u; a lot of my favorites have been removed, too. OTL. i love hate the fics that make me cry omg…but they’re so beautiful at the same time! ah really? what do you prefer to read? OCs? :3 asdfghjkl but they’re so embarrassing and dirty xDDD ;u; MAYBE. i’m too shy xD (who am i kidding im the king of perverts) ahhhh ikr! i was like: hey dae, can i try - OH MY GOD YOU ATE THAT TOO? as he stuffs his face xD hyuna has a special place in my heart too c: AH YES. wasn’t it called 24/7?? xD i thought it was really different, but it was good~

two Christmases ago, one of my closest friends at the time made basically a book of happiness for when she can’t reply, saying how to stay happy and distract myself from feeling shitty - the first time I read it I cried bc it was so cute. After cleaning out my room I found it and it made me so fucking sad cause I read through it and I actually miss her so bad and all the little things she said in it makes me miss our friendship so much and the thought she put into it vs us now is just :( I put a snapchat up to her about it so hopefully she’ll see it and know how much I appreciate that gift even now:’)

*bursts through ceiling screaming excitedly* MELIES!!!! i was already a huge fan before watching hugo and let me tell u you have no idea how much i cried. buckets. it wasn't pretty. but i regret nothing his movies are so great. have you seen Le manoir du diable?

My first experience with him was with that Smashing Pumpkins music video. I was enchanted and then I saw Hugo and now it’s possibly my favorite movie of all times and I cry over Melies! I’m such a fangirl whenever I see his films referenced or read his name or there’s a segment on him in a film documentary. I mean he thought all of his films were destroyed and he was totally forgotten but then people found them and he was rediscovered and he’s known as one of the greatest film pioneers! And Hugo is such an incredible film! I’m completely obsessed and I wanna watch it, but I also have a writing activity for my film class to do. I just love film so much it hurts!

World’s End

Well here’s the fic I was talking about a couple weeks ago. or the first half of it at least. I lost motivation in the second half so I cut it out. I might finish it, I might not.

Dean P.O.V. Sam is completely irreparably broken, like brain damage/permanent catatonia broken, and that kind of breaks Dean in a completely different way.

I’d say really carefully read the tags. I cried pretty much the entire time I wrote this…though I think it might have been hormone related.

Canon Divergent where Lucifer got Sam instead of Cas.

Alright, Consider yourself warned. This is not a nice, pleasant fic. It might be the darkest thing I’ve ever written.
