     You thought she was a nice girl. Everyone thought Veronica would make a nice addition to your group of friends, you thought that Ronnie was cool that she would fit in nicely. You thought that for a while before you started to pick up on some things that never would add up in a normal person’s mind.

If u don't use ot4 or ot5 to denote whether something was before or after Zayn left or whether a gif/photo contains all 5 boys vs 4 because it was after March 2015, then what do you use for tagging?? Or like, if it was up to u what would u want everyone to tag things as?

Oh, it’s much deeper than tagging.  It’s really the issue of the fandom either A) not thinking critically at all, or B) being hypocritical about what they apply logic to.  It’s also about people, no matter what they think happened (Zayn’s leaving wasn’t fishy vs. Zayn’s leaving being super fucking fishy), being willing to immediately believe the worst about someone they should already know the true good character of.

In more specific terms, it’s about the fandom buying everything the media and the narrative says about Zayn without valuing logic and the things Zayn says from his own mouth more.  It’s about fans willfully interpreting everything related to Zayn as negative, deciding they have a grudge against him because of those perceived “slights”, and then erasing and demonizing him in equal measure.

To state a surprising truth, there isn’t a single person in this fandom that believes everything the narrative says about One Direction.  They probably think they do, but they don’t.  I’ve seen people who constantly mock the idea of a narrative or a constructed media image and yet they still push back when the boys are said to be dating someone that’s not confirmed, said to have been rude, said to be doing odd things (sheep placenta facials anyone?), said to have a bad relationship with each other, said to be violent or on drugs, etc.  

The thing is, people THINK they believe everything is simple and truthful, but at a basic level, they have their own beliefs about who the boys are based on what they’ve seen in interviews.  If those conflict with what they’re told, they scoff at what’s being fed to them.

This is fact and yet a large chunk of the fandom had very little problem turning around and believing everything bad the media said about Zayn, even when the things he himself said and did were so different from that.  

“so grateful” and “loved what we did as a boyband”

“I don’t think I woulda done anything different”

“there was no contingency” and “my band’s been really supportive, they’ve been really cool about it”

“it was nice to look back at the memories we shared together” and “ok, you’re saying that” (this requires tone interpretation, but his tone is “don’t agree, yeah, ok, whatever, shut up” rather than “I agree with you and I’m being coy about it”)

“you don’t want to feel that you’re being lied to, not that I was lying, it’s just that them songs didn’t really fit my style of singing, so I wasn’t really 100% confident in the way that I was singing back then”

What Zayn said in person didn’t at all match up with the headlines the newspapers kept running and the words they kept putting in his mouth.

A specific example is this whole thing that people believe Harry and Zayn have a problem when NEITHER. HARRY. NOR. ZAYN. EVER. SAID. A. BAD. WORD. OR. SHOWED, SIGNS. OF. TENSION.  

I can understand believing Louis and Zayn fought a little bit more (even though evidence suggests the Twitter fight was all a planned show), but the only things that ever happened with Harry and Zayn were some BS news articles with no source and Harry making a few jokes about the unnecessary tension and glee the interviewers had when talking about Zayn.

Up until the very last show Zayn was at, he and Harry were acting normal and close. Even after Zayn’s last show, Harry was right there with the other boys in leaving space for Zayn on stage.  Even after THAT, Harry was involved in things that referenced Zayn in a positive way.

(When a fan showed Harry this picture of Zayn in concert)

There is NO basis for believing there’s an issue between Zayn and Harry, yet the fandom believes it because it’s what the press has said.  They apparently want to believe it since there’s been little to no pushback.

This is my problem with group A.

My problem with group B is all of that plus they DO know how to see everything I’m pointing out; they know and they choose not to bother with it if it doesn’t apply to Harry and Louis.  That’s even worse.  There’s no way to miss what’s going on since it’s entangled with the other boys.  It’s even harder to miss since there’s a good core of bloggers here that always gather evidence, do the hard legwork, and make posts about it.  

With the ability to reason, there should only be 2 divisions in fandom: those who believe the narrative no questions asked and those who don’t.  Instead, there are those who believe the narrative no questions asked, those who believe it about some and not others, and those who question and examine everything.

“OT4″ and “all 4 boys” are heavily associated with the erasure of Zayn from the band- even the pre-March 25 band-, the degradation of Zayn’s character, failures of logic, gross hypocrisy, and the diminishment of the amazing bond OT5 share.  

I understand and acknowledge that not all people using it have those intentions or participate in those actions (which is why it doesn’t bother me as much when people I follow and know have good intentions use it), but so many do that it leaves a terrible taste in my mouth every time I see it.  Zayn’s career prospects, personal desires, name, and reputation have been so unfairly and so badly abused that the injustice of it makes me furious. Anything connected to it makes me furious and that’s why “OT4″ and “all 4 boys” has that affect on me.

It’s not something I’m expecting everyone would use, but @paynoisbatman uses “zayn’s boys” when there are 4, or “liam’s boys” if Liam’s the one missing, etc.  It’s a great way of showing that the missing member is still important and is still part of the love all 5 share.  When it comes to “all 4 boys”, you simply have to drop the “all”.  It might take a tiny bit more typing, but it’s worth it to represent the situation accurately and honor the contributions of and bond between all 5.

Do you have any tips for writers who want to write sim stories but don't know how to get them posted in order?

Hi Nonny! I’ll be honest, I wasn’t 100% sure what this question was asking, but I don’t like to give advice that isn’t at least somewhat well-thought out. So here are my tips for starting out and how to format/order your posts (or something like that.)

Jade’s Super Awesome Tips For Getting Your Simblr Story/Legacy Off the Ground i.e. Potentially Helpful Formatting Tips For New Simblr Writers

First of all: If you want to do a sims story, DO IT. They’re great creative outlets, and someone will want to read it! And remember, it is your blog, so do whatever you want, and don’t feel pressured to have to make things a certain way. But, if you want to be organized, these are some guidelines: 

1. Identify your posts in some way. Doesn’t matter how. Some simblr writers use episode, some use chapters, some use a mixture of both (i.e. Chapters for longer portions, like an entire arc, and episodes for each individual scene. Example: Chapter 1: Episode 1, Chapter 1: Episode 2… etc.). This is helpful in letting regular readers know if they’ve missed a post, and follow along linearly. It’s just helpful all around.

2. Linkage. My dudes, this is so important, which is why I made a previous post about it. A lot of simblr writers are already doing previous/next links on their posts, and that’s GREAT. Everyone should definitely be doing this. Personally, I really think the movement should expand to include “beginning” links. On my own posts I have all three, a link to to the start of that particular story, the previous post in the sequence, and I update all posts to include the “next” link once I have it posted. Tumblr’s post formatting makes this SO easy, there’s no real reason not to do it, because it’s super helpful to readers, and trust me, people want to read from the beginning. Maybe not everyone, but you also don’t want to turn people away because they couldn’t find the start of your cool story. So, I repeat, all stories should have this format: Beginning/ Previous / Next links on each post. I’m beating a dead horse here, but it’s so nice, as a reader, just to be able to flip through someone’s story via easy linking, because I don’t have to break my immersion of the story by tabbing out or looking around, or scrolling through your posts to find the next one in line.

  • Helpful side note: If you’re the type of writer who posts things out of chronological order, using these links would still be a good idea, because you can go back and edit them at any time, and you can link to any post on your tumblr, so if you post something later down the line that you think should have happened at an earlier time in the story, you can just rearrange your links to reflect your correct chronological timeline.  
  • Here is my tutorial on how to link your story posts with beginning/next/previous links!

3. Tag correctly. Some simblr writers have more intensive tagging systems than I do, so I won’t speak too much about this, because as a reader, I don’t really use tags to navigate new stories I read. But it is still important to tag all posts in a story the same, so either with the title or legacy name, and then you can tag individual chapters or episodes if you want to. Also be sure to tag if you’re doing a story, or a legacy, or whatever type of story. I use #ts4 story #sims story #ts4 storytelling, there’s a whole other slew of legacy tags which I don’t use, cuz obviously I am not a legacy simblr.

4. Have a table of contents or story page of some sort, especially if you’re doing multiple stories/legacies at once, but even if you’re not, it will help people who are lurking around your profile navigate through your story. If you’d like an example of how to format them, here is my story page and here are my table of contents pages.  As I am not the be all and end all for formatting, I think another great example is @beverlyallitsims index page (she made it SO easy to catch up on her MLSC story and now I’m just another Randy fangirl. I’m a living testament to this process working wonders!). 

5. Billboard advertising. Okay, now this one is totally optional, but if you are doing a legacy or story, it’s a really nice little touch to have a banner or some tell, even if it’s just a small one (you don’t need to be some Photoshop wizard), to let people know that this is an ongoing thing you’re doing, not just a random collection of photos (those are cool too!), but some people go looking specifically for stories and/or legacies to read, so having a banner or something with your story title or legacy name (generation number) is a good idea, too. 

Bottom Line: Make your stuff accessible! Unless, of course, you don’t actually want people to read it lol, which is totally fine, too. Some people like to use their blogs as a personal outlet, and don’t need to be noticed. But there’s nothing wrong with trying to be visible, and if you do have a small pool of readers, be generous and help them along. Total strangers want to read your work, put in a little extra time to make sure their stay is a pleasant one. You know, before you rip out their hearts with your edgy theatrical sim-drama. 

Again, idk if this answers your question, Nonny. But I do want to help! If anyone has any questions or is looking for advice, feel free to message me, either privately, or on Nonny, I don’t mind. My inbox is always open.

Another wall exploded.


Hogwarts was broken and its remains weren’t pretty. Half of the wizardry school was on fire and the other half was crumbling. What used to be a beautiful and prestigious school now looked like a burnt cookie castle of a sort. But the Battle of Hogwarts was not over yet.

Inside, the halls looked as if it were never corridors in the first place. The classrooms were coated with dust and ash. The chairs and tables were either missing parts or were completely crushed by gigantic debris from the higher floors. Everything was damaged. Only the cold Slytherin dormitories in the dungeon were completely untouched.

Professor McGonagall had ordered that all the younger students either went home or remained in the protection of the students who were old enough to realize how bad things actually were but were not yet of age. All you could hear in the Slytherin dormitory’s common room were loud urgent whispers, sobbing, and reassuring words of comfort. For one of the first times ever, the Slytherin students had mingled freely with the other houses’ students. They needed each other.

The Slytherin students had moved the sofas to the corners of the room and distributed food. The previously dark and cold room had been lit up with love and care.

All around Harry Potter, the older Hufflepuff students were handing out blankets and trying to make the children smile. The older Ravenclaw students were telling bedtime stories to the children and healing the wounded. The older Gryffindor students were awkwardly trying to talk to the Slytherin students, make peace, and vice versa.

Harry couldn’t help but smile. In the darkest of times, he found light in themselves. His family.

He scanned the room slowly again.

In one corner, he saw the Weasley family, Hermione, and Fleur. All of their faces were solemn and sad. George’s red and tear stained face was the first one he noticed. Fred had just died in front of George.

And Ron looked so angry at himself and at the world. He threw his wand in frustration and cried out. Hermione went to him and gently squeezed his arm. Bill and Fleur were hugging each other but their faces were just as pained as the rest. Percy was sitting on the floor, staring into space with a face full of nothing but anguish. Ginny went to Dean and cried as well. Mrs. Weasley looked the worse though. Mrs. Weasley was sobbing so loudly and she looked like she wanted to tear her hair out. Mr. Weasley patted her back gently. Although he seemed calm, he wanted to pretend it didn’t happen at all.

Harry’s stomach twisted in regret and pain. Somehow, he just knew it was all his fault. Especially the part when Tonks and Lupin died. Merlin, he remembered their pale but kind faces staring into nothingness as if they had felt no pain. Harry could feel the pain.

“Shut up, Potter,” Draco said behind him. He had his arms crossed over his chest and he was holding two green and silver blanket—Slytherin colors. His face may have shown no expression but his grey eyes—they were a different story.

Harry turned around and blinked at his boyfriend. “I wasn’t talking.”

“Your thoughts were loud enough. I could hear them over the shrieking, honestly,” Draco replied, sitting down with Harry on the floor and handing him a blanket.

The Boy Who Lived laughed a bit and wrapped himself in the blanket. “It’s nothing important, Draco. Besides, I’ve got to face Voldemort at midnight or he blows up everything I know and love.”

“It’s we. For one bloody second, can you please stop being your usual heroic and caring self and listen to me, Harry?” the blond haired boy snapped, glaring at Harry.

“I don't—I can’t let you do this, Draco. Your father—” said Harry painfully. He attempted to hold Draco’s hand but he refused.

Don’t touch me until you say we’ll go together. Can’t you see, you daft idiot? The moment I switched sides was the moment I stopped caring about my father. I started caring about you,” Draco said quietly.

Harry didn’t answer. He merely stared at his blanket and rested his head on his boyfriend’s shoulder.

“I don’t want you to die. Dammit,” Draco blurted. He had wrapped his own blanket tighter around himself and Harry. This time, Draco reached for Harry’s hand and squeezed. Harry squeezed back. By now, they had both forgotten the world around them—they had both forgotten the chaos.

“I might just have to. For you and for everyone’s sake,” said Harry sadly. He was prepared to do absolutely anything for the ones he loved.

“I don’t care. I’m beating Voldemort senseless if I have to,” Draco said fiercely and determinedly. “There must be some way.”

“It’s all right. Hermione and Ron will be out there with me,” Harry said reassuringly.

“Why is it that Granger and Weasley can come but I can’t, Potter?” Draco questioned, one eyebrow raised. He looked at Harry angrily.

“They’re my best mates—”

“I’m your boyfriend,” Draco interrupted.

“Which is exactly why I want you to be safe in here. Please, Draco. Majority of the Slytherin students who have Death Eater connections stayed because of you. They need you more than I do,” Harry pleaded.

I need you. I know it’s selfish but I’ve past the caring stage ages ago. If you die, how can I live?”

“If I die, we all die.”

“Exactly, Potter. So let me come with you,” Draco whispered, caressing Harry’s cheek.

“I—No—Oh, all right,” Harry said finally, giving in to Draco. Merlin, he hated what Draco could do to him.

Hi! Your writing is, as usual, absolutely amazing and you post so much and you're absolutely amazing for it! If it's not too much to ask, could you do something where Bokuto, Nishinoya, Kenma and Tendou are reassuring their s/o who is very self conscious about their own appearance and have little confidence? It can be headcanons or scenarios I don't mind, whichever you prefer, dear~ thanks a bunch!!

I’ve come to discover through these that headcanons are, like, the best thing to do ever. Lol, but this was cute, Anon!

Hope you enjoy!

P.s. I just freaking figured out that other people add their own tags when they reblog my stuff and I literally spent about an hour and a half going through my notifications to see what those tags were. I love them. And I don’t know whether to be embarrassed by how much time I spent on it considering I have so many finals to work on! LOL.

Bokuto Koutarou

  • While this boy explodes with confidence, he does know what it’s like to fall into pits of insecurity, so he’d very much make sure to approach the situation very carefully.
  • He’d tell them the way they were feeling was valid - in the sense that society puts these insecurities on everyone - but that they should know that they’re better than anything society can produce.
    • And he’d be sure to tell them everything he loves that society perhaps wouldn’t - the birthmark on their cheek, their head to toe freckles, the beautiful dark kinks in their hair, their curvy figure that he looooves cuddling. And boy won’t stop until he names everything he loves: EVERYTHING.
  • They’ll probably laugh, tell him that they get it and that he has to say that because he’s dating them. Oh no, mistake.
  • It goes from 0 to 100 real fast, because he’s not finished.
    • Their laugh - like, the one where there is no control, where they’re crying and possibly snorting - is his favorite sound, their ability to take on the world so bravely, the way they love so fully, not holding anything back. There is so much about them that is so unique and grand and it kills him that they would even consider he didn’t mean every single word of it.
  • Cuddles, snuggles, and delicate kisses are to be expected afterward. And you better believe he’s spend HOURS just admiring every single part of their body - he’ll kiss every freckle, even the ones you didn’t know you had! - before he takes his time making love to the soul he cherishes to dearly.

Nishinoya Yuu

  • I actually think insecurity is something that might be a little hard for Noya to grasp right away. This kid has almost never been self-conscious about anything, it’s a very foreign concept to him, so catching on to the fact that something is wrong might take some time.
  • And he probably wouldn’t realize how much he’s not helping the situation when they come to him with these insecurities and he brushes them off initially with a, “you shouldn’t feel that way.”
  • That would start the trend of them just keeping things to themselves, because if he’s just gonna blow it off then what’s the point in telling him?
    • I can see it getting kinda bad. They’re fighting for no reason now and they finally snap one day saying how he can just go date someone who’s perfect then.
    • Oh. That’s when it hits him square across the face. And boy, does he feel like the worst boyfriend in the world.
  • From that moment on, this precious bean would try his best to understand what they were going through and be more aware of what they need from him when those moments come on. And he’s a quick learner, taking initiative in snuggle time and providing them with whatever will make them feel loved and wanted - words, physical contact, acts of service - they name it and he’ll do it because he never wants them for feel that way ever again.

Kozume Kenma

  • Really, just really, this kid would know that they’re insecure before they can even figure it out themselves. He had spent so much of his life trying to hide from the insecurities he faced while in middle school, there’s just no way that he wouldn’t see it as clear as day within his significant other.
  • But he wouldn’t bring it up directly, he’d wait for them to come to him when they really needed him. He’d watch them closely though, the last thing he’d want is for them to get too far deep into their own negative thoughts.
    • He’d probably be so wrapped up with making sure they were okay that he would just leave his PSP at home. Everyone is concerned for Kenma’s health - even them - but there are more important things to worry about.
  • Despite his subtle efforts to keep them from falling back into their insecurities, it’s bound to happen - sometimes you just in those moods, ya know? - and they’re breaking down in the middle of their dinner or homework or something just as random.
    • The first time in happened, Kenma panicked. He didn’t know how to handle such an outburst of intense emotion, but he figured it out slowly - and with a LITTLE help from Kuroo?
  • Now it’s just second nature, this boy will let it happen - because you can’t stop the inevitable - and gather up as many blankets he can find to wrap around the both of them where they’re stay burrowed for the rest of the night with Kenma whispered small reassurances and reasons why he loves them that are only heard by them and their surrounding covers.

Tendou Satori

  • I think that with Tendou he might actually be a little oblivious. The kids called ‘Guess Monster’, there are some things that he’s aware of and some that he misses and I feel like this is one of them.
    • Maybe it has something to do with his own past? Like, he knows what it’s like to be self-conscious about who he is and that he holds his significant other up so high that they could never feel that way because they’re amazing, there’s no one out there like them.
  • So when it does end up coming up that their self-conscious of their appearance he is totally floored. Because how can they say that? Don’t they know and see how pretty, no beautiful, no GORGEOUS they are?
  • For a couple days he’s not exactly sure what to do. He knew suggesting besting their enemies as he did when he was younger is not the way to go when the enemy is your own brain, right? But despite not knowing exactly what to do, he never left their side, choosing to console them with his presence at the very least.
    • Tons of forehead kisses and verbalization of his love is how they spend that time. He may not know exactly how to help them gain confidence in themselves, but he can give them all his love - which ends up being one of the main contributing factors to their attitude towards themselves becoming better.
  • Omg, I can just see this tol bean spending a morning in bed with his significant other just covering their face with kisses, smile wide, and every time they try to protest against something he says he just lays another kiss on their lips. Sweet thing will stop them with all his love from thinking less of themselves!
Ya know what grinds my gears about RWBY

When ‘edgy’ rwde RWBY fans:

- Try and blame the bumbleby shippers for the ‘ship war’ between it and [the other ship involving Blake] that’s apparently ruining the show and the three characters, or vice versa ship wise

Because insinuating it’s all our fault will make us feel guilty and hopefully we will shut up [not likely tho]; the whole thing is just our fault because we want our ship to happen just as much as the other side whom of which are not at fault at all. Like almost a ‘war’ doesn’t take two opposing sides to actually happen? Lmao. Nobody is really at fault, except the people that attack others.

- Use them as a reason to not watch it anymore [even though they 'hate it anyway and the writing is awful omg’]

Since the plot that was probably thought up years ago is being ruined by us, even though it 'sucks anyway because Miles and/or Kerry is/are terrible’ and it’s not like two VAs for two of the characters ship it or anything.

- Say 'they only attack the other ships and only want to focus on their ship at all times’

Because I can remember the amount of times I’ve attacked another person for liking a ship [it’s zero], and most people aren’t dickheads, and we shouldn’t be lumped in with the ones that are because that’s bs generalisation. And we all don’t only focus on bumbleby, but for some of us it’s a really big deal that maybe there’s gonna be gay gals that are on screen, and not just in the last scene of the series [cough LoK]. And I think about the whole show but I like to discuss important things to me i.e the ship.

- Claim 'maybe not all of bb shippers are bad but *proceeds to reason why they’re all bad anyway and/or make the ship suffer for a few bad eggs*’

Cool thanks for contradicting yaself, generalising once again and/or making a perfectly reasonable ship seem like it’s shit because some people are mean about it.

- We’re man haters/unreasonably disliking [or insert anything about $un], since ’$un is amazing’

Some people not liking $un that much as a character ≠ man hating/≠ unreasonable. I don’t like all the characters in a show wow I’m a monster.

- Say 'I’m fine with f/f but *here’s why I will not support it anyway*’

If you’re fine with f/f, you don’t have to mention it if you’re disagreeing with the ship for unrelated reason m8!

- Or my favourite: say “the shippers ruined Blake x Yang and I don’t even want it to happen now”

I don’t even know any of these people irl and now I have to watch some people bash a ship because of some random person’s actions I had no control over. Sounds pretty dumb doesn’t it?

- Possibly more stupid bs that is purely subjective opinion they use to try to justify hating the show/a ship/a character.

Apparently we act/are acting like 'entitled brats’ when we want LGBT etc etc representation in the show that has been said by its creators to have it; and we want it in the bumbleby ship. Because somehow, we are forcing them to do it by supporting it, and therefore making the show a piece of shit.

That we are reaching; since [insert any possible evidence for Blck$un] happened and it’s **proof** they’re going to date and that no other ship has a chance.
(if I thought BB was the only option I wouldn’t be discussing it like I do; anything is possible right now).
Literally nothing is canon or set in stone (I promise I don’t say that as a reason to 'disprove’ the legitimatacy of Blck$un as a possibility).

Because two main characters being interested in each other would //ruin the plot//, even though some of the plot has included Yang (and even $un too) being dragged into Blake’s consequences of her past.

And especially, that we are solely responsible for the drama because we are all crazy or just seeing what we want to see.

Because that isn’t exactly what everyone does when they want a ship to happen…?

Let’s be clear:
This goes both ways for anyone who goes around hating (yet some of the reasons would differ).

Going around attacking someone for liking a ship is ludicrous. Spreading hate about a ship is too.

I endeavour to never do that and have been successful. It’s not difficult.
I stay in my tag and all that tumblr shit; I stick to being positive and not including *why another ship won’t happen* as a reason to justify my favourite ship.

Using another ship as a reason to disprove something makes no sense because nobody is correct at this point, we’ve got equal chance of getting what we each want. In the end some of us may end up disappointed, but that’s not happening right now so why can’t we just be civil?

Why should Blck$un shippers suffer because of other shippers? They shouldn’t.
Why should bee shippers suffer because of other shippers? We shouldn’t.

Seriously, any normal person in any ship camp wouldn’t agree with being rude or mean to other people over a ship, or attacking somebody for having different tastes.

Most importantly to me; why should the chance of Bumbleby happening be damaged or suffer, just because a few people are disgruntled because of some assholes that NONE of us sane people agree with?

Don’t let anybody tell you what to ship. Decide for yourself and be positive about it, aim for support and *that’s it*.

Stop the negativity, please.

anonymous asked:

you said you were up for answering gilmore girls questions so why do you prefer rory and logan to rory and jess? not trying to start anything. just curious.

Oh boy. This is quite the can of worms you’re asking me to open, but I have no self preservation instincts, so I”m going to answer.

First of all, let me say that I love Jess. I think he’s a great character and had some of the best development on the show. I just don’t care for Jess and Rory in a romantic sense and I’ll explain why. First, though, I want to talk about Rory and Logan.

From the very first time we meet Logan, it’s clear he’s Rory’s intellectual equal. She even tells Lorelai later that he’s smarter than she is. He challenges her. He pushes her. He brings her out of her comfort zone. But here’s the thing: He never pushes her out of her comfort zone. Even in “You Jump, I Jump, Jack” when he gives the speech to get her to jump, he tells her when they get to the top that she doesn’t have to do it. And she says she knows. That’s how it always is. Logan gives her permission to do things she wouldn’t normally do, to take a step out of the sheltered world she lives in and try something new. She spends her entire life planning every detail, every little step. He shows her what can happen when she doesn’t chart everything, when she lives some of her life without a plan. He shows her that sometimes you need to take a risk and step out of the world you know in order to be successful. And we see how it changes her from that very first episode. She jumps, and it drives her writing, it drives that article, it turns it from something good into something great. Rory always said she wanted adventure. Logan holds her hand while she goes after it. He’s not from her world. He’s someone new, someone different. And that’s a good thing. Rory needs someone that challenges her. He challenges her intellectually, too. They can talk about books. They can talk about journalism. And they do.

I think this all carries over into their relationship. Rory goes after what she wants with Logan, really for the first time in any of their relationships. Yes, she also kisses Jess first, but then she runs away from it, runs away from him and goes back to Dean until he breaks up with her. With Logan, she goes after him. She asks why he’s never asked her out. When he tells her why, she makes the choice to go forward with no commitment. She kisses him first. And when she wants a commitment, she tells him she can’t do it anymore and he makes the decision he wants to be her boyfriend. It’s refreshing, in this relationship, for Rory to be so forward about the things she wants.

Sorey/Mikleo Is Romantic and Canon, the Cross-Tales Edition

Originally, I was going to wait on doing this until after I’d finished my NG+ play through since I’d spread out my original play through over 6 months (so my memory of mid-game SoreMiku is a little fuzzy, while early game and end game are like, crystal clear, lol), but since I’ve been seeing a few “SoreMiku is platonic” or “they’re just bros” and similar reblogs and comments, I figure now is as good a time as any to write this: SoreMiku is a romantic and canon ship, the cross Tales of Series edition.  Also known as: “And you wonder why a lot of us think SoreMiku is romantic when (insert other couple here) gets to do this.”

Cutting for length (this monster wall of text was nearly 3 pages long in Word), spoilers everywhere for other games:

Hey! So I know this post has been covered a hundred times, but I just wanted to give my take on it and hey a little more info can’t hurt anybody.

So what is a studyblr?
Studyblr: study + tumblr; a blog about studying.
It’s a blog to help motivate you to study or to learn new ways of studying! You can also gain amazing resources that’ll help you in your classes and throughout school.

Pros & Cons of Starting One:

  • Pretty pictures of notes
  • Learn how to take great notes
  • Motivation to study
  • Meet new people with the same interests as you
  • Get resources and helpful tips for the classes you’re taking
  • So many masterposts and helpful tips!
  • Inspiration for study spaces
  • All around great community!


  • Literally nothing…

How to Start:
Create a url: it can be anything you want it to be.

  • The most commonly used urls in the studyblr community are something with “yourname” + studies or studywith + ”yourname”. For example mine is “chinazomstudies”
  • Anything with the word study or related to studying is pretty common as well.
  • You can also use inspirational people, historical figures, or fictional characters as your url! The possibilities are endless.
Choose a theme: this can also be whatever you want.
  • You can go minimal or loud, use one or two columns, have a sidebar or not…whatever you think looks best or fits what you want.
  • The key pages to a great theme are the about page and tags page. These pages really bring a blog together but they aren’t necessary. The about page is where we really get to know you! The tags page is great because I like to look for certain things and it’s nice when there’s a page where I can look at all your tags.
  • As for an overall theme, most studyblrs like to go minimal. I like to use fansite themes and tweak them just because I think it looks nice.
  • Here’s where you can get just about any theme ever made. +another one
Branching out: it’s also important to have posts to look at so you should find people to follow! Getting Noticed:
Make an introduction post: this is the best way to become introduced to the studyblr community.
  • Here’s mine.
  • I gained 150 followers by making one! Just make sure to follow everyone that follows you! It’s lowkey rude when you’re just starting out and make this post just to get followers. The point is to meet new people and gain some friends. Making an introduction is a great foundation to starting out.

BOTM: another great way to get noticed.

  • You can enter into blogs of the month competitions or blog rates. These will get your blog promoted to a bunch of other studyblrs.


  • When reblogging, you could keep a queue of about 30 posts (1 per hour) to keep your blog active if you won’t be on Tumblr all day. I usually keep my queue running while I’m sleeping so my followers on the other side of the world can see I’m active.
Making Posts:
What to post:
  • ANYTHING? But since we’re focusing on a studyblr, you should probably post things related to studying.
  • Study pictures, study guides, helpful tips, masterposts, playlists, bullet journal, study space, stationery, books, etc..
  • A great way to stay active is by participating in the 100 days of productivity.
  • ALWAYS POST ORIGINAL CONTENT! NEVER REPOST (taking someone else’s content and posting it as your own without permission). This is incredibly rude and will make you look untrustworthy and deceitful. Never do this. Only post what you have created unless you have the original owner’s permission to use their content.
How to edit photos:
  • There’s so many tutorials and posts about how to use lighting, angles, and editing - but here’s a great one. You can also look for tutorials on @yeahps or @itsphotoshop.
  • If you don't’ have Photoshop, use: VSCO, Pomelo, Pixlr (online), or Afterlight.

Getting your content seen: the most efficient way to getting your content spread is by tagging it!

  • Make sure to TAG your photos and posts with popular tags that pertain to your post.
  • The most popular tags in the studyblr community are: “studyblr”, “studyspo”, and “studying”.
  • You can also tag studyblrs that track their tag. Look for popular studyblrs that have tracked tags.
Extensions / Apps: some extensions that you’ll find studyblrs using or posting about
  • Momentum (the pretty new tab page that almost all studyblrs have)
  • Lanes (another pretty one)
  • Pomodoro (app)
  • Forest
  • Fliquo
Below is just some stationery you may have seen every studyblr using. These are really nice things to use for your notes!

And that’s just about it! I hope I covered everything and I’ve helped you in starting a studyblr. Good luck and welcome to the community! ❤

Can you believe I had never drawn these four all together before

summary: You can learn a lot of things about someone during a thunderstorm. Sometimes even more than you bargained for. (A post-Jackady Ladrien/Adrinette one-shot)

AO3 | Fanfiction

When Adrien Agreste learns that Ladybug is none other than Marinette Dupain-Cheng, he feels like he’s been struck by a bolt of lightning—electrified, illuminated, and shocked to the core.

But he doesn’t know that yet.

All he knows is that in the two days that have passed since Ladybug came to the Agreste Mansion to help him save his father from being attacked by Jackady, he’s been replaying the events of the day in his mind over and over again, especially when he’s alone in his room in the evening.

The memories flash into his mind when he least expects them, distracting him from his surroundings completely. So when it happens again on this particular evening, he almost doesn’t even notice that Ladybug is standing on his window ledge, grinning and knocking on the glass.

Luckily, her knocks are loud enough to distract Adrien from his reverie, and he practically runs to the window to help her inside once he realizes that his lady is actually here in the flesh and not just in his imagination.

“Ladybug! It’s—it’s so nice to see you! What are you doing here?”

He hopes his cheeks aren’t as red as they feel.

Salut, Adrien! I, um, just wanted to check up on you, to make sure that you and Monsieur Agreste are doing fine. Just a nightly check-in, since it’s been a few days! You know, hero duty and all. It’s what we do,” says Ladybug in a torrent of words.

She hopes she doesn’t sound as nervous as she feels.

How to Interact with Actors/Idols Appropriately on Social Media

Fellow 2.5D fans.  You may have seen this post floating around, about foreign fans replying to actors on social media in inappropriate ways.  I agree with pretty much everything that post has to say, but I’m not here to reiterate what’s been said before.

As inappropriate as they are, those tweets are sent by fans, right?  Fans who like the actors and want to support them, right?  That’s fine!  It’s okay to respond to them on Twitter!  But there are certain boundaries you don’t want to step over or you (or worse, foreign fans as a whole) will be seen in a negative light, canceling out the support you’re trying to send.

So today let’s talk about reply etiquette.

just a word

It is an absolute shame to be in this fandom sometimes.

I (and Mod Aaron as well) do our best to make sure that the different forms of Chrobin can be enjoyed on this blog, esp. hetero Chrobin and gay Chrobin. I enjoy both to an equal degree and the only reasons female Robin tends to come up more on this blog is because a) we get more prompts for that and b) I, as a female, identify more with her.

It is disgusting to see the arguments that go on. Absolutely disgusting. Having a preference is one thing, but purposely saying that shippers of the other Chrobin are wrong or only like gay ships or are “heterosexual” (and don’t give me that shit about the word not being rude when used in this type of context) is uselessly, needlessly rude. 

“Oh but the f-supports are terrible!” At least they still show that Chrom relies on Robin for strategy, that he genuinely feels bad and nervous about walking in on her, and that–in his dorky way–he tries to make the best of it so their relationship isn’t ruined. Do I think they’re flawed? Sure I do. Would I have them changed? Not really, because the supports give me more to experience for Chrobin, especially since I headcanon both sets of supports happening regardless of Robin’s gender.

Other than the f-supports and the unfortunate fact that there are no same-sex s-supports (which is a really shitty fact), the rest of the game for the two of them is the same. For instance, regardless of any pairings in the Future Past, Grima says to Lucina, “The person this body used to belong to loved your father.” For instance, regardless of pairings, Chrom doesn’t want Robin to sacrifice themself.

Awakening is meant to be enjoyed in whatever way you want, however you want (unfortunately barring same-sex), and shitting on other people for doing just that is awful.

We have been lucky to not get any hate on this blog. Never have I had to delete an ask because it was rude or attacking. We try to answer asks with encouragement, excitement, and humor–if I ever came across as rude I hurried to apologize. It is hurtful to me to see friends of mine be told they’re stupid and the like just because they prefer one Chrobin over the other, or, gods forbid, they say that both Chrobins are equal/perfectly acceptable to ship.

I try to make this blog a fun place. I usually use my personal if I ever have an opinion such as one like this. But never have I ever shit on someone for liking any ship. If I don’t agree with someone about it, I don’t agree with them. I’ll tell them if they want me to. But I will never insult them for it.

If you have a preference, so be it. That’s natural. That’s fine. That’s how the game should be played and enjoyed. If you think the f-supports are bad and don’t like fChrobin, whatever. If you don’t like mChrobin for whatever reason, whatever. I don’t care.

I’m not saying that everyone who ships some type of Chrobin is doing this sort of thing, but the ones that do have pissed me off to the point of saying this: If you have a shitty attitude about it, take a look at yourself and think about the fact that you’re insulting other people for enjoying a goddamn video game in whatever way they want to.

I hope that this is all I will ever have to say on this matter. I’m not arrogant enough to think that putting this here will stop everything, but I hope at least that it makes some sort of difference because I am sick and tired of seeing this sort of shit.

Please note that this is entirely from me, the head of this blog, and whatever opinions Mod Aaron has about this may or may not be the same; I didn’t talk to him about this before writing this post. Also, any replies or asks regarding this will be ignored/deleted or talked about in private. This post is all I ever want to have on this blog about the subject. This is not a place for arguments.

You don’t get to tell Dearies how they feel about Belle French

I saw a post I shouldn’t have. To be clear it was properly tagged, XKit should’ve blocked it. But it didn’t and I was so affronted by that post I felt the need not to respond but to clarify.

The gist of the post, which was one short sentence, was that Rumple fans see Belle as his property and not as a character in her own right. I was surprised it was an Evil Regal saying this, I thought there was enough communication between one side of the fandom to the other to see and know this is not true. And this are all my issues with the post:

A) The SHOW treats Belle like that, and therefore so do all your faves: The people who reblogged it where all Evil Regals, CSers and the like. And on the show their favourite characters have CONSTANTLY treated Belle as an extension of Rumple, a weak spot of his to exploit instead of a person.

  • Emma did it when she blackmailed Rumple into going to the Underworld and when she was Dark Swan.
  • Snow did it when she ratted Belle out to save her neck from Hyde.
  • Regina did it when… well, take your pick. When she locked her up for over 30 years, when she took her heart to manipulate and control Rumple, when she made her into Lacey….
  • Hook did it… Well, he still does. When he shot her, when he punched her so hard she lost consciousness, when he admitted to helping her because it would annoy Rumple.

B) Even when the characters are not treating Belle as “Rumple’s object” they ARE treating her as some sort of useful tool and then promptly forget she’s a human being with feelings.

  • Belle went to Camelot to help Emma, and on a mission with Hook she got kidnapped while standing right next to him and went missing for over two days and he did not notice.
  • The heroes are constantly going to Belle for help researching things but when Belle needs help… no one does anything? Other than Rumple, I mean.

C) Dearies where almost the only people I ever saw fighting for the show to treat Belle different: We used to be so vocal about getting Belle more screen time and her own plots and story development, back in the days when we thought this show just needed to know how much the fans loved Belle. Sure, there were Belle fans doing this that weren’t also dearies, of course, but 90% of the effort I saw into trying to give Belle more of a role in the show was done by dearies. We have the countless tweets to prove it, pleading for more Belle time (NOT Rumbelle time, BELLE time), gushing about every single Belle scene to make the writers aware of how much we WANTED Belle and liked her as a character, showing them the disparity between Belle’s screen time and the screen time of the rest of the cast, etc. We have the tumblr posts to prove it, about writing to ABC, doing a twitter event for Belle, trying to see how we could possibly get the writers to give us more of Belle as a character. We have the e-mails and letters sent to ABC studios, begging for more Belle.

We tried to make this an OUAT issue. We tried to get help from other people, other ships. NO ONE listened. I saw NONE of the people reblogging that post that annoyed me fighting for Belle’s screen time or for a story of her own. We were ALONE. You left us all ALONE.

C) I feel like that post perfectly embodies this new trend of “protect Belle French” I see. Just to be clear: I don’t think EVERYONE is doing this, just that most people who now flood the Belle French tag (and whom I’d never seen before) do. What is this trend about? It’s about caring for Belle French… now that she can be used as a way to shit on Rumple. Ironically this is the worst insult to the character ever, the idea that people would suddenly start caring for her just to shit on a character they hate. These people are just now wanting to protect poor Belle from evil Rumple. They were FINE when THEIR fave was being an abusive asshole to Belle (Regina, Hook, Zelena, Snow, Emma, take your pick). Most people take it a step further and gush about Belle now getting close to their fave (which is how she entered their radar as sudden “person of interest) as something cute and positive.

No, I don’t think it’s cool to think about Emma and Hook being Belle’s baby’s godparents. Don’t we have to characters that HAVEN’T tried to kill her that could fill those roles? Archie and Granny? Leroy and Ariel?

No, I don’t think Belle and Zelena are being best buddies. Zelena raped and later led to the death of a man Belle risked everything to save and outright killed Belle’s stepson. Zelena tortured Belle’s True Love and toyed with the idea of having him kill her.

No, Regina did not ask Belle forgiveness for all the horrible shit she’s pulled on her. Did I miss the part where she said she was sorry about the taking of his heart? Did I blink and miss that?

D) Yes, now that OUAT has written both Rumple and Belle so badly there are people who are taking sides. And some people who identify with Rumple are taking his side. But that doesn’t erase how much they loved and fought for Belle before A&E made her act reckless, stupid and sometimes insensitive and cruel (that is NOT Belle French, I refuse to see it as part of her actual characterisation). Then again this show has committed character assassination en masse so everyone should feel like they can relate (I imagine Snow fans were enraged when the show had their heroic princess selling off a pregnant woman for her own safety, for example).

Bottom line is… We dearies fought for Belle French. We fought for years. We fought for her when you were nowhere to be found. When you had better things to care about than the diminishing screen time and lack of own storyline of a minor character. So now you don’t get to tell us otherwise. You don’t get to say that we are doing to Belle what the show did to her and we fought against.

               popokki | waningxmoon | sacrificialfrailty | dereliquit

1. REBLOG IT, make those notes boom!

reasoning for this meme;; this is a meme to help you have access to everyone’s preference in shipping. everyone has their own desires for the subject and sometimes we stumble into a really good one, other times we regret, and at times they are just mediocre. if everyone just posted their very own profile of preferences in shipping, then you might just find your very best ship partner that much easier! just remember to tag a mun (or multiple) who posted an application that resonates with yours and if so far, no one’s application has piqued your interest but you would like to see a particular mun’s stats, just tag them (gently) in the appropriate section below.

LET’S SHIP IT !?! TAGGING: nobody because i am the first to make this!! ;D
SHOW YOUR SAIL !! TAGGING: @dereliquit, @unstoppablefate, @waningxmoon@moraldysplasia@albitails, @aoxre, @psythe@kingxfmischief@gin-ichimaru, @saisci, @twobasstards, @peoplejuiice, @ifrinncu@tenxcious, @dearnicolai, @hyperdetect, @talentedropout, @eshajjouri, @shiicn, @tefechi, @duckisms oh my gosh i’m laughing so much–pls love me & don’t feel like you have to do this either!!

TAGGED BY: nobody </3


Mun Age: 15 or under | 16+ | 18+ | 21+ | 25+ | 28+


How Many Blogs: 1    2    3    4    5+

this is extremely important… i only have ONE blog which means i’m pouring all my effort into this one place. i honestly don’t mind if someone has two blogs, but usually if i see more than that, i get skeptical about how swift one might lose muse for a specific blog. 

Type of Blog: Main | Secondary | Side

i only got one, so i would hope this is the case lmfao!

How Many Muses: Solo | Dual | Multi

this is extremely important! with only one blog and one muse, the aim is development but also to avoid any ruts. it’s stated in my rules but i won’t be shipping with anyone who has more than one muse on their blog.

Type of Ship: Single | Dual | Poly | Multi for each AU | Multi but Single for each AU

you would think i couldn’t highlight two of these. i am a single-shipper! however, with my muse having an interest in polyship, i would be willing to try it out and see how it works. i have seen one in the past and it looked beautiful. but yes, it’s potential hence why i italicized it. however, i lean more toward single-shipping since i’m familiar with it.

Type of Verse: Single | Multi Main | Multi AUs

my partner’s doesn’t need to be single-verse. i’m fine when they are multi-main or multi-au tbh BUT i do insist on being in their main verse, lol!

Activity: Sparse | Leisure | Weekly | Daily | Multiple Times A Day

okay, how is it that i can do all of these? i legit thought i was a leisure for the longest time but i’m actually a fast rper when i’m into a thread or muses interactions. often times, if my interest is piqued i can reply multiple times in a day but if not, then it will be at a daily pace. i italicized weekly because if a thread doesn’t hold my muse at the moment, it could take me a week to get around to it. in shipping, i would probably hope for the same enthusiasm from my partner and thus, seeing replies on a daily to multiple times a day basis. of course, i’m understanding when situations arise but if it’s just frequent lulls or you happen to be a weekly replier? it might be a little too excruciating for me.

Writing Length Preference: One-Liner | Para | Multi-Para | Novella | Match

yeah… pretty much i’m flexible on this and it depends on the scenario that is unfolding between the muses. i usually do match the other mun’s length but i don’t keep it my focus? it just happens most of the time. i did italicize one-liner because i wouldn’t be able to write a ship with only doing one-liners all the time. i enjoy getting in depth and really fleshing out the development with muses.

Thread Flow: Multiple Scenarios At Once | Sequential Story Line

i will always want progression and thus, i look for sequential threads. mostly focusing on one thread, completing the current ongoing plot or progressing it forward (if per se, they need to escape from some bad guys, i would ensure the thread finishes before posting a silly mundane thing in the askbox irrelevant to the ongoing thread unless if it was crack). of course, if there isn’t any driving plot or scene ongoing atm, multiple scenarios at once of a ‘Slice Of Life’ is p fun.

Planning Process: Plot | Pre - Established | Go With The Flow

okay, so i only plot where i feel it is necessary? for example combat, adventure, some compelling happening, disaster, etc… otherwise, i usually only like to set the scene and then have the muses take the reigns from there. often i won’t plot at all except for a starter post at the ‘greeting stages’. after that, my muse can often take the lead whether it’s by popping into someone’s askbox or shooting random starters.

Do You Write The Do: Smut | No Smut 

yes!! not even going to lie, i love to write smut where there is chemistry. not that i write it often (i haven’t for once written it on this blog). but i know for sure if i ship w/ someone, it’d be with someone who’d be up for writing it and is of age.

Genre: Slice Of Life | Fluff | AdventureActionAngst | Horror | Dark Themes | Crack

yes, all the things pls. i want a fully rounded ship with a lot of development, strife, stuggle, cute, sweltering hotness, give it all–and yes, i’m willing to write even the darker themes. this obviously just depends on the interactions between the muses and who the other muse may be? currently Gale is not some sadistic, evil muse so it wouldn’t really be him but he definitely has had moments of being not so kind.

Social Level: OOC Post | AskboxIM | Tag | Skype | Kik | LineTexting

let me elaborate. i want to communicate! i want to see the enthusiasm levels! and gosh, tagging me in things, making a tag for our ship, posting about our ship ooc, sending memes/prompts when applicable, sharing ideas through IM or just spamming each other when the other mun is online, sharing skypes to further just… talk all day and perhaps even sharing some mobile way of contact. i love using kik or line to pretend that the muses are texting one another (but i usually ensure that Gale received their phone number via rp first before i allow that). and just basically, being friends and being super comfortable and having a lot of endless fun!! and then breaking each other  c ause someone had to go do the a ng st. <3 LOL!

Extra: Unrequited | Love Triangles | Bromance | Crossover | Strictly Canon | Incest | Selfcest

so, i didn’t have a place to put these? but, yep. figured i should put them somewhere! i love unrequited ships so if your muse develops a crush on mine, go for it! also love triangles?! i never see these on tumblr tbh cause… it’s tricky business especially if you involve more than two muns, this may be even better suitable for muns who rp multi-muse blogs and coordinate it with one other mun who also has a multi-muse blog but… ah well! bromance is a yes and so are crossovers, though Gale is an OC… but, just basically meaning i’m willing to ship with a canon muse, too.


NOTE (optional): cross out anything your muse prefers in a male, italicize anything your muse is prefers in a female, if fine with either simply bold it. also keep in mind that muses are ever-changing, especially through development and preferences can shift along with it if the mun wills it. if there is a preference not listed, add it in your additional words to keep the meme standard.

Current Status: Single & Not Looking | Single Ready To Mingle | Crushing | Dating | Married

Romantic Orientation: Panromantic | Polyromantic | Heteroromantic |
Homoromantic | Biromantic | Demiromantic | Aromantic

Sexual Orientation: Pansexual | Polysexual | Heterosexual |
Homosexual | Bisexual | Demisexual | Asexual

okay wow, a lot of you might be wondering why this? Gale doesn’t really know his sexual orientation. he only has done heterosexual so far and it would take a loooooot of encouragement for him to do that again, he really likes the fluff with girls though. thus, he is more curious than anything right now about his sexual orientation. there are further reasons behind this but do know that Gale does not officially know where he stands. he currently in rp, stated he wanted to try a polyship but judging Gale and how smitten he can get with someone, i don’t know if he could handle a polyship. and personally, as the mun, i don’t think i would have such a great time writing smut for a heteroship unfortunately; there’ll just be a hell of a lot more fluff if i did a heteroship.

Gender Preference: Male | Female | Bigender | Trans | Fluid | Agender | No Preference

Aesthetic Values: A-Cup | Addict | Athletic | Artsy | Biker | Cross-dressing | Culinary | Curvy | Dangerous | Drinks | Fantasy | Farmer | Hair | IS IT BIG | Legs | Loner | Muscular | Musician | Nerdy | Piercings | Popular | Power | Short | Slender | Smokes | Sporty | Street-Smart | Supernatural | Stylish | Tall | Tattoos | Teeth | Tech-Savvy | Traveler | Wealthy

These Words are a Lie ~A Joshifer Fanfiction~ Chapter Two

A/N: Wow, I find this to be absolutely crazy! Like, this story is actually coming together. This is all getting too real lol! I never expected to get to this point to be honest with you. But, as promised, the second chapter of TWAAL has arrived.

I’d just like to give a big thank you to everyone who sent such sweet messages concerning the first chapter; your support was, and still is, greatly appreciated. I wouldn’t have the confidence without you all! <3

Also, a personal thank you to catching-dandelions once again, for all her help and patience. She’s had to listen to me babble on about this story for about a month, bless her.

The previous chapter can be found here [x]

And with that being said…


The soft voice breaks me out of my unconscious state, drawing me slowly and painfully back into the real world. I groan softly, shutting my eyes tightly and nestling down into the material beneath me.

“Come on, it’s time to get up,” the voice wars with me yet again, deep and gentle.

But I’m having none of it. I don’t want to get up and face the day, with all the challenges and heavy emotions it will present. So my brow furrows, my hand blindly reaching down and groping for the sheets. I find them, and bundle the fabric up in my hands, before yanking it violently over my head.

A laugh sounds, and whatever I’m laying on vibrates beneath me, causing me to moan in annoyance.

“I mean, as much as you don’t want to get up, I unfortunately have to.”

And suddenly, it registers with me, finally coming out of my slumber induced daze to put two and two together.

The tender tone belongs to Josh. And my head is currently resting upon his chest, my free arm strung across him in an almost possessive manner.

I allow my eyes to come into view, attempting to blink the sleep from them and squinting when the light of the room registers. My head begins to ache, a pounding sensation deep within the depths of my forehead. And it essentially registers that I’m only feeling one thing this morning.

I feel terrible.

look i want so bad to love leo again, he was this incredibly beautiful and complex character, scared of his powers, blaming himself over his mother’s death, cracking jokes when all he feels is pain inside. i related to him so bad. this little kid is far from perfect. he’s annoying as eff, he flirts with most things female and doesn’t know when to stop, he can’t be serious, he’s way too hard on himself, he hides behind a mask of pretty decent humor, and guess what? he’s very insecure about his appearance, which makes him compare himself to jason and how heroic he looks = hence more self doubt and I LOVED IT. because this made him so real! and it was so refreshing! plus he always feels left out among his friends because they’re all couples, he kinda has the hots for a girl who is spoken for, and he does some pretty mean things to her boyfriend which he shouldn’t be proud of. he’s bitter and lonely and knows it, but he’s still his own joke-cracking self. and hasn’t everyone felt that way before? i remember a time when like three of my greatest friends all had boyfriends and i didn’t, and it was just weird hanging around all of dem happy couples together. leo felt that was too and i would read him being super bitter and annoyed and be like YAS. MY SON.

(also i had this major idea that the reason leo wanted a girlfriend so bad was to replace the woman he’s lost i.e his mom and i’d imagine him one day realizing that his mom still exists, in his heart and in his thoughts, oh the feels)

it’s pretty much because of that that i didn’t want leo to end up with anyone by the end of the books. because it would be stupid and contrived and just plain unnecessary. i figured that every book series needs that single protag to keep things real and i thought reyna, leo, and nico would still be single by the end of the book series (shows you how much i know, haha). 

but then in the house of hades rick screws shit up and leo meets calypso and falls in love in the most predictable way possible, ugh, and besides the fact that he knew her for how long, exactly? his obsession with her carries over into the blood of olympus, where he gabs about her all chapter long. and look all i ever wanted for these characters is for them to be happy but leo found happiness in the most cliche hurried way, ugh. it honestly became a pain to read his chapters and though i appreciate his slightly more serious side (as we saw with hazel at the end of the house of hades), jesus christ leo was acting like cupid had shot an arrow straight up his butt. i’m not even joking. leo just became this lovestruck puppy, and his only real goal was to reach ogygia and reunite with calypso, his one true love, after defeating gaea and “sacrificing” himself. the fact that his friends mourn him after his supposed death, while he whoops and kisses calypso, makes things much worse. and that last chapter was a nightmare, i ended up finishing the series with the most sour taste in my mouth. and see, what’s funny is that in the lost hero, i used to skip over jason and piper’s chapters just to get to leo, and in the blood of olympus, i would reach leo’s chapters and not even bother reading a word. and yeah, this probably makes me not fully qualified to answer this question properly, but so many other people in the fandom agree (i think). all in all, leo just had a super disappointing conclusion to what seemed like a very promising character arc. and i also think it sends a super wrong message: that you need to find a boyfriend/girlfriend to be happy. and oh mannn that’s not true. 

what should have happened: leo should not have met calypso. he should have gotten over hazel another way because yes, it can indeed be done, and he should have realized that okay, maybe he doesn’t have a girlfriend, but he’s surrounded by friends who love him and appreciate him for who he is. there are other kinds of love, and leo should have recognized that. he’s got a home in camp half-blood, he’s avenged his mother’s death and finally accepted that she would be proud that he’s survived all he has. he has a family, a real one, in both his friends and his half-siblings, and a father who is actually kind of sort of really proud of him. i don’t know about scrapping the physician’s cure, but if he’d sacrificed himself, he should have actually died (and the fandom could have headacnon-ed about him meeting his mom in elysium). he should have accepted that yes, there is darkness in him, but he’s got a gift: he can produce light, not only through the fire in his palms but also just by being around, being himself, being content. i think that would have improved things immensely. 

but i don’t know. what do you think?

p.s i’m sorry i don’t think i worded it very well tbh, but i think i got everything across. (i hope, at least.)

Dialogue and your characters; getting it right.

Before we get into the details of character specific dialogue styles we should really cover

The Basics

I know, I know, you may already have these down to a tee and, if you do, feel free to jump right over to the next section. However, for those of you who find dialogue an enigma shrouded in a mystery (or however that tired old saying goes) then stick here for a few seconds because, trust me on this if nothing else, it’ll help.

Dialogue, as a matter of course, should;

  1. Sound natural
  2. Show characterisation


     3. Move the story on.

In order to do all this you must know your characters and plot like the back of your hand. It’s also important to know that the best speech tag available is he/she said; adverbs, on the whole, are added to speech tags for one (or more) of three reasons;

  1. The writer is inexperienced and doesn’t think that their writing can convey the characters emotions without the addition of adverbs.
  2. The writer has been lazy in the application of characterisation and needs to tell the reader how the character is reacting.
  3. The writer lacks confidence in their ability to show rather than tell.

Now its true that no-one can be rid of them entirely and, yes, adverbs do have their uses but the goal should be to have as few as possible. Take this example;

“How dare you speak to me like that?” He demanded angrily,

“Quite easily.” She replied coolly, 

‘Demanded’ and 'Replied’ are certainly decent speech tags ; they’re not too intrusive and don’t hog the limelight but the adverbs are unnecessary and dramatic. We should be able to tell by what the character is saying that he is angry; he might not, as a matter of course, demand - he might shout or snarl or hiss- but the language makes it easy to see he is angry. 

Speech tags should be nearly invisible, unless they have something important to say. Remember this and we’re off to a good start.

anonymous asked:

Can you please stop putting those Melissa and Carol posts in the general walking tag? Not everyone worships her like you crazies do and we don't want to see all that bs in there. It's irritating. She might be your queen or whatever but she's not the main character and doesn't belong in the main tag. Stick to your corner of crazy please.

Hi there “friendly”,

Thank you for at least attempting to formulate a somewhat polite message! 

Unfortunately you lost all credibility the moment you decided that throwing around insults such as the “crazies” was an acceptable way to approach someone and have a prayer of getting them to consider your request even if it had merit (which in your case is NO!). 

I am sorry that quotes pertaining to the TWD as a whole, which happen to be singling out the performance or a storyline of a prominent character/actress from the same show, feel out of place for you in the General TWD Tag. 

After all I am posting articles that are related to the show itself and therefore are relevant to ALL Walking Dead FANS and not just Carol/MMB supporters, which in my opinion means that their appearance in the general tag is not just appropriate but could even be deemed as helpful, not to mention informational.
Judging by the tone of your message I think it’s pretty safe to assume that the “irritation” you are referring to, stems from personal frustration related to either “Carol Hate” or the lack of your favourite character or pairing presence in the media articles I am filing away. 

Seeing how you don’t own the TAG and the information I am posting is perfectly related to the show itself and therefore isn’t violating any “rules”, you have a few options to lower your frustration level and remove the material that is apparently “irritating” you through sheer existence. 

1. You can block me, my blog or the key words/names that are so bothersome 

2. You could do your own research and post more things about TWD that you personally enjoy to see and read more about. 

3. You can also be a grown-up about this and scroll away from the quotes that include the character you dislike so much that you are sending messages to people you don’t know just to call them “crazy”!

As Carol herself said “I know what I think you should do”

As far as your assertion goes that Carol is not the “main character” of the TWD - I happen to agree with you on that one BUT that brings into question exactly who you deem “worthy” of being there in the first place…just Rick? Daryl?
I am gonna need clarification on that one!

Now I did contest to you regarding Carol not being the protagonist of TWD and while that is correct, Carol is most definitely one of the most prominent characters the show has had for a while now and judging by the media coverage her popularity and importance just keeps rising…

To help you take my claim a little more seriously I brought back-up, that even a “general fan” such as yourself should appreciate and trust;

Scott Gimple - The Show-Runner

“Carol started out with an absence of strength in the face of Ed, and now she’s easily one of the strongest characters.”


Gale Anne Hurd - Executive Producer 

“Carol has become one of the most popular characters on this show,
Maybe one of the most popular characters on television”


Robert Kirkman - TWD Creator 

“I’m really proud of the evolution that that character has gone through. It’s one of the best parts of the show. Melissa McBride’s performance is absolutely amazing. More than any other character, Carol has evolved in leaps and bounds.”

I made my point and you made yours SO how about we leave right here!

Stop calling people CRAZY - It’s not NICE!

Happy Reading
