     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.

Whats your opinion on the headcanon that bakugou is hard of hearing because of how loud his explosions are? If you dont mind my asking

I think I answered this q on this blog already? Maybe? But anyway, I don’t exactly mind it, but I can’t say I share the headcanon myself - for one, because I’m of the opinion that their bodies are built to withstand a safe use of their quirks (a bit like you can’t break a leg by simply walking, you know), so in general I’m not a fan of headcanons that include damages caused by simply doing what their bodies were born to do? 

But also because generally, even under the assumption that his body isn’t made to hold up with his explosions, isn’t it awfully convenient how only his ears take damage in these scenarios? What about his eyes? How come he can still see with no problems even with the continuous exposure to the explosions’ light? How about his hair? How come he can stand so close to fire without it ever being damaged by it? His palms have thicker skin and we know that thanks to his UA file, but what about the rest of his body? How come he can stand smack in the middle of an Howitzer Impact without getting even slightly burnt? When you say “only his ears aren’t made to withstand his explosions” what you’re telling me is that his whole body is tailord to deal with his quirk but his ears, and that just feels unrealistic to me - by which I mean, when this is the scenario we’re talking about, you can’t give the fault of the damage to Bakugou’s quirk. It’s a problem his body has, not a natural consequence of having that sort of quirk. And imho with those premises you sort of end up with a different kind of story, you’re supposed to write it differently - that’s what I think, at least

Anon said: Maybe the reason Baku raises his voice so often is because he can’t hear very well, which isn’t due to his explosions, rather, he was born with bad hearing to protect him from taking damage by them.. and then his other senses are sharper to even it out, and his body can even subconsciously notice air vibrations, resulting in really fast reflexes.

Ah, this is also another reason why I’m not a huge fan of the headcanon - don’t get me wrong! If you like it then go on, I’m not trying to stop anyone from enjoying ideas and possibilities!! But personally I like Bakugou not having any reason to be loud-mouthed and rude, that’s just his personality and how the environment he grew up in made him, and lately I’ve seen the hc used to justify his behaviour more than I like? Bakugou being an asshole is just who he is, and I love it! I love that his life made him like that and I love that he’s working hard to fix that flaw, giving him an external reason, something he has no control over, to justify his personality changes the core of his character too much, and that’s not something I’d ever want to do tbh

And it’s also cool to think that he was somewhat genetically engineered to be better in a fight to compensate for a lack of earing (though again, why only his ears and not his eyes or his sense of tact too), but that goes to cut on all the hard work he put in becoming as good as he is, right? If that’s what you like than who am I to stop you! But Bakugou’s hardworking nature is one of the things I love about him, I don’t really feel like taking away from him all the effort and work he put through the years in becoming as good as he is now

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!

anonymous asked:

should I read some ao3 fics? I never have before and don't really know where to start 😅

i honestly feel so envious of you lol. i wish i could go back to when i first discovered ao3 and read some of those wondrous fics for the first time again ;; but as for where to start, well that really depends on your personal preferences for fics! for example do you like more of fluffy fics, or angst, ect. but i’ll just rec in sort of an escalating order, from kind of simple plots, all the way to massive novel like multi 100k experiences ahaa

okay, so for sort of on the shorter side, nice n simple to-the-point plots i would rec the following 

  • glass diamonds: i rec this fic way too much, but i can’t help it i just love it that much. i tend to rec this a lot to people who have never read m/m bc it’s on the shorter side (i mean relatively bc it’s still 18k and that’s like a book to me basically lol) but you still get really nice development from the characters. it’s like a skater boy jungkook x preppy dancer jimin, and i just love it soooo much, so definitely give it a go bc it’s just really cute
  • body ache: i actually just read this fic a few days ago and it was so warm??? my heart was just moved by the characters and they’re seamless development. it’s a college / music major au and i just loved it so hecking much man 
  • and when you think of me, am i the best you’ve ever had: this is angsty right from the start, and it just really tugged at my heart so much when i was reading. it’s a really good read that goes all too quick ;;

next if you want like 30k - 70k monsters with still sort of contained plots i’d go for these. also these are mostly by the same author but they’re just all so good i gotta rec them lol

  • some killer king you are: i.fucking.love.this.fic.so.goddamn.much. it’s x games taekook, and just 60k of cute skater boys being flirty and falling for each other but trying to act like they aren’t falling for each other. love it man lol
  • pour up (drank): similarly, cute frat boys being flirty and falling for each other but trying to act like they aren’t falling for each other. they’re such bros in this lol but it’s really cute and i loved the characters lots
  • feel it kicking in: dude i could feel that neon beach town aesthetic radiating through my screen lol. it’s pretty long, 70k ish and it’s basically about this very bro friendship and how it kind of just boils over into a romantic encounter. i just really love the setting of this fic bc it’s so apparent the entire time that you’re reading that these are beach town kids and it’s just a nice calming read 
  • hickory: underground boxer taekook with that sexual tension so thick you could snap your laptop in half. yeah that’s totally this fic lol. i just really love the escalation of all of their encounters culminating is this sex scene, and again there was so much sexual tension that once you get to it you kind of just sigh in relief lol
  • comeback kids: sort of enemy hockey player taekook?? again a very bro centric relationship that boils over into romantic encounters

want those heavy hitting plots that kick your ass and heart

  • golden boy: *sorry i’m already wiping my tears away* it’s probably like my second favorite fic of all time. it was just perfect in every way. there were issues that the characters had to deal with, and it was all handled in a really mature way that just made everything seem so real. i just - EVERYONE READ IT AND CRY W ME PLS
  • swamp magic: with the newest chapter of this i can honestly say that with all of the fanfics that i’ve ever read, i’ve never had such a heavy weight sitting on my chest where the angst and hurt of the characters was affecting me on that high of a level. for the hours that it took me to finish the update, my heart felt tingly and sick bc it was all so heartbreaking. the plot is super interesting and the development of the characters relationship is one of my favs that i’ve ever read

okay and yeah finally bc what ao3 list would be complete without this fic

  • house of cards: well i can’t adequately describe to you my love for this fic tbh. just know that it’s my favorite fanfic ever ever ever. i was riveted and read this 400k beast in the span of like 4 days. it was that good. but just know that if you decide to venture into this masterpiece you should probably read the tags bc this shit is gruesome and there’s a fuck ton of death and descriptive mutilation due to the nature of the plot and character development. i get that this fic isn’t for everyone and not everyone will enjoy it, but just know that i’ve never been so scared for a fic to end bc i legitimately didn’t not know what was going to happen to the characters in terms of their livelihood / sanity / pretty much everything. so if you can handle the things mentioned in the stories tags and then some i would say give it a shot bc it honestly became the threshold to which i compare everything to now

wow i can’t believe i just rambled about ao3 fics for that long. pls forgive my shit spelling and grammar in the above lol. i just love to describe my love for fics in broken sentences and screaming 

anonymous asked:

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. 

Old Lotus x Palette FanFic

It was a nice day. The sun was shining, and the breeze was nice as well. It seemed as if nothing could ruin such a beautiful and perfect day. What could ruin it in the first place?

Staying inside just didn’t seem like an option to Palette, and why would he want to stay inside in the first place? Why would he want to miss his chance on not being outside that day? He could do so many things to impact on others. He could make lots of people happy!

Or he could not…

Anyways, Palette has decided to take a walk through the park. He watched as orange, red, and yellowish leaves fell from the trees around him. The sight was breath taking even though he had no breath to be taken.

He walked a bit farther on the path until he saw a bench. He thought to himself that possibly he should rest for a bit. A minute or two.

While sitting down he closed his eyes and listened to sounds of birds chirping and the swishes and whirls of the breeze. It was peaceful. So peaceful he had started to fall asleep. He tried to fight against the urge, but he couldn’t. Seamlessly falling asleep on the wooden park bench, decorated with orange and red leaves.

He felt as if he was being chased, but by who? He ran out of his house as quickly as he could.

He, if you were wondering, was Lotus. He had been living alone for the past month, hoping that his Ex wouldn’t find him. But. It seems as if he did. All he needed to know was that his Ex’s silhouette had been looming outside his first story window. The window had started to open a crack, and that’s when Lotus decided to book it out of there. It wasn’t that he was scared, it was just because he didn’t want to look at his sexy face, he didn’t want to think about all that they had done together. About how meaningless it had been to let him be so close to him only for his Ex to betray him by sleeping with another.

He hated thinking about it, it made him want to cry, but he wanted to appear tough so he hid his sadness with a thick sheet of anger.

He began to grow tired, he didn’t want to run anymore. Did he dare look back? Is he gone? Is he still following me?

Reluctantly he looked behind to see nothing, but his own footprints. Maybe it was nothing. But it felt so real to him. Maybe Lotus had just been too stressed about his old lover that he just imagined that scenario. He honestly hoped that had been the case. Otherwise he’d have to deal with his Ex more often.

Once again, if you don’t know, Lotus’s Ex is Rurik. A skeleton who is more interested in getting someone in the sheets than to actually know them on a personal level.

Lotus sighed, looks like he ran all the way out here for no reason. That’s when it hit him. Where is here? He looked around the area. It was getting dark out, but Lotus didn’t care too much about that. He debated whether or not he should explore this place or teleport home. There wasn’t much to do at home, and there was the possibility that Rurik was waiting for him like Lotus was his prey. He decided to explore, paying close attention to how dark it was getting outside.

Lotus started walking forward. Not too long did he notice a bench being occupied by a colorful looking version of his Palette. He was asleep. He shuck a bit at random moments. What the hell is he doing? Or, dreaming about?! Lotus thought, And why is he sleeping on a bench outside at this hour?!

The Palette slowly started to wake up, it startled Lotus a bit. The Palette did a quick yawn before noticing Lotus and how dark the surroundings had gotten.

“Whoa! Hello there! Hehe,” the Palette chuckled, “I didn’t expect to sleep that long, or even to sleep in the first place.” he got up and started to walk towards Lotus, not noticing how uncomfortable he was.

“Uh, hi,” Lotus replied, his voice had a hin t of irritation in it, “I guess.”

The Palette held out his hand, “I’m Palette! Palette Roller!! And what’s your name?” he seemed very excited.

Lotus stood there, staring at Palette’s hand, it shocked him to see how extroverted he was. He thought for a second before he reluctantly shook Palette’s hand.

“Oh…ugh…” Lotus said awkwardly, not really used to be social, “I’m…Goth….” (I’m editing this for all the names…and I’m just keeping this in because then I’d have to change up this fanfic and I’m not working on this monstrosity ever again) 

Palette stood there in amazement.

“Wait!!! So that means there’s two Goth’s?!” he shouted excited, “That’s amazing!!!”

“Calm down there…Pal?” Lotus said, irritation flooding his voice, “And yeah…I guess to you it’s amazing, but to me it’s a living hell!!”

Palette, who’s completely oblivious to Lotus’’s anger, looked at him like he cared about this conversation for some reason.

“Oh, why’s that?”

“Why do you fucking care?!”

“Because, why wouldn’t I care? I care about everyone!”

“Yeah, yeah.”

Darkness had fallen around them, you could hardly see anything for miles.

“Anyways, hehe, it’s getting pretty dark,” Palette says, he thinks for a moment, “Hey!! Do you want to have a sleepover?!” he exclaims, smiling.

Lotus almost jumped at Palette’s statement. A sleepover? Was this guy serious? The last time Lotus had a ‘sleepover’ he ended up chained to a pole in his own Palette’s basement, there’s no way he’d want to go through that again. But, this guy seemed as if he couldn’t hurt a fly. And this guy’s smile somehow managed to reassure Lotus somehow. It’s just that he didn’t want to say ‘yes’ right away, wouldn’t that make him seem weak or something?

“I dunno,” Lotus said, “I’m not really busy tonight, but I just met you.”

“Yeah, I understand that,” Palette agreed, “But it’s getting late and I thought it would be fun, hehe”

Lotus shivered at that word…'fun.’ He just hoped he didn’t mean it in the way a pervert, or Rurik meant it.

“What kind of 'fun?’” Lotus asked.

“Well, I guess the kind two friends have, hehe.” Palette smiled.

Why the hell is he so innocent?! Does he not realize that him and I aren’t friends?! Does he not realize that I’m not some social skeleton like him, that I’ll easily be lured in by this play of his?! But, what if it’s not a play and he’s serious?! That would be even more weird.

“So, what do you say?” Palette asked.

Without realizing it, he says the word 'yes.’

I didn’t type this all, I just copied this from my old Wattpad that I just deleted a couple minutes ago. But I did edit many names. So that took forever…lets hope I got them all changed…heh..

I dunno why I post this old shit, but I guess I am….

I’m not continuing this ever by the way, and I hope this will post the whole thing or I’ll be pissed…

Anyways the tagging time..

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.

——-

Another wall exploded.

Crash!

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.

happy-amateur  asked:

writing requests open, right? sonya spending time with other units in celica's army.

of Ram Wine and Shitty Sperm Donors

“You never mentioned he was your father,” Celica uttered discretely, hoping that the crackling of the campfire and the ale-induced small talk from her party would drown out the sound to anyone but the woman next to her.

“You never asked,” Sonya answered matter-of-factly, her eyes never meeting Celica’s while expertly twirling a half-empty wineglass between her fingers she had personally emptied and refilled plenty of times tonight.

She wasn’t the only one. Tomorrow they would go into Duma’s tower, a challenge unlike anything they had ever faced before, and after today’s encounter with a seemingly unbeatable Jedah, her companions were more than keenly aware of their own mortality. The only remedy to that realization seemed to drown it in alcohol, though Celica herself did not join in.

The encounter hadn’t just left her with her own dilemma, but also revealed a painful truth about Sonya’s parentage. Celica wouldn’t ever have guessed that the lunatic was related to Sonya if it hadn’t been for their short argument, quickly followed by some particular fearsome magic from both sides. She’d never seen Sonya quite so deadly, and considering the journey behind them, that was quite telling. Sonya had always had a careless act about her casting, as if the enemy was merely a temporary entertainment to her. Never before had her eyes alone been able to kill a lesser man, nor had her spells been this frighteningly powerful.

All of that was gone now though, hidden beneath a perfectly constructed mask of causality, and drowned in plenty of Ram Wine. It was that very same liquid that loosened her tongue. “Besides, it takes more than just blood to be called a father. He was never there for us when we needed him, growing up. And after what he did to my sisters…” Sonya’s cheerful voice didn’t match her words, but Celica could see the way her knuckles turned white around her wineglass when she downed the remainder of her drink in one go. “We were never more than pawns to him, conceived to be sacrificed at the right time. He’s no father of mine,” she finished brusquely.

“I’m sorry I asked,” Celica apologized with a slight bow.

Sonya shrugged, and Celica pretended not to see the pain behind the woman’s eyes. “Why? It’s not your fault he was a shitty man. Besides, from what I’ve heard you’ve had your own share of terrible sperm donors.”

“Sonya!” Celica exclaimed, her cheeks the shade of a tomato at the mere thought of addressing her royal father in such a way.

Around her, more than one eavesdropper burst out in laughter.

“To shitty sperm donors!” Exclaimed Saber, raising his cup to a toast. More than half the group joined him with wry smiles of their own.

Celica decidedly looked the other way, displeased at the display. “Don’t you think I should… forgive him?”

“Should we?” To her surprise, it was Conrad who spoke up with an uncharacteristic amount of disdain. He had been hovering close to her all evening, trying to get her to speak about her conversation with Jedah. “He was, by all accounts, a terrible man. I’ve never heard anyone speak kindly of him, and he was king no less. He forced my mother from her homeland and into his harem just so her people could eat, only to be discarded once he found a new toy. He might have granted us a luxurious childhood, but he never came to visit us, did he now?” Even though she was happy to have her brother back, it was easy to forget that they did in fact share the same father. To hear him speak like this was harsh, but liberating all the same.

And she realized he was right, as he often tended to be. But that didn’t make the truth hurt any less. “And when he died, nobody mourned him. Neither did I, honestly, I was glad he was gone,” Celica admitted with a heavy heart. “But I feel awful for thinking that.”

She had never made a secret of her dislike for her father before, but now that the crown laid heavily on her own head, she understood the man a bit better. Nobody wanted this life, and if it had been forced upon her from birth, tempted with luxury from the day she was born, would she really have been so much different?

Sonya let out a sharp laugh, one without any mirth. “The only reason I’m glad that man isn’t dead yet, is because I want to be the one to put an end to him. Though I’ll settle for being there to see the light fade from his eyes.”

For a second, Celica was afraid that the woman was going to crush the wineglass between her fingertips to demonstrate what she would like to do to her father’s spine. But then the moment passed, and instead Sonya refilled her glass, offering it to Celica.

“Come on, try it,” she urged, all but pushing the glass into her hands. “If not tonight, then when?”

“I’m a priestess!” Celica protested in vain.

Sonya looked at her disbelievingly. “Yes, of Mila, who encouraged indulgence in young women, if I’m to believe the stories.”

If the stories were to be believed, Mila encouraged a whole lot more than just underaged drinking in women, so Celica let that argument die before it backfired into a conversation of unmarried intercourse.

Defeated, she accepted the glass. Sonya was right, even though she didn’t know quite the extent of it. If not now, then never. With that resolve in mind, Celica took a small, careful sip. It wasn’t as strong as she had imagined it, nor did she feel a sudden urge to join Saber in a song about his father. But it didn’t make her feel any less alone, either.

When she turned back to Sonya, she had a faraway look in her eyes, as if entranced by a vision only she could see in the campfire.

“I did feel like you, once upon a time. Everyone wants to love their parents, deep down. Yes, even me. But sometimes there just isn’t anything to love. You’re a wonderful woman, Celica, and if he never was there to see that, than that is his loss, not yours.” And for the first time since they had met, Sonya willingly touched her shoulder in a gesture of comfort. It was as short as it was meaningful, and when it ended it had both women slightly redder than before.

“Mah, look at me, waxing poetry and dishing out words of wisdom. Too much of this fancy ram wine in my system. I’m off to bed before any of you start telling me your sob stories like I’m your mother or something,” Sonya exclaimed, her face contorted as if she had tasted something very bitter, and got up shakingly.

“I can escort you there, my dear!” Jesse offered with a drunken leer.

“Not a chance in hell, pretty boy. I’m drunk, not desperate.”

Reblog if you headcanon that Mila organized lesbian orgies in her temple. Just kidding, just kidding. It is convenient to say the very least that all of her attendants were female though. Mila is put in a far better light than her brother, but at the end they were both corrupt as all hell. Besides the cut-scene, I wish there had been more of that in the game. Anyway, I enjoyed this request a lot, and it grew to be quite a bit more than the 300 words I had originally in mind for these requests. Oh well, I hope you enjoyed this too!

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.

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.

anonymous asked:

I hope it's okay I remain anonymous, but I'm prone to shipping het ships over same sex ships but I love bakushima. They mean a lot to me and I honestly have never wanted a same sex ship to be canon as badly as I wabt them to be. But, I haven't told my bff that I ship then because she would hate it. She wouldn't be able to see it as more than a friendship. And I'm 1000% sure that would change if Kiri were a girl. But when it gets down to it, she and I don't ship a lot of same sex ships (cont)

(cont) because we often see friendships being sexualized off stereotypes. We’re both incredibly affectionate in platonic relationships. We hold hands and cuddle and can share a bed with a friend without blinking an eye. So, when we see two friends comfortable with each other in that way, and then people being like “they’re soooo in love” or “they’re definitely fuckin” we’re just like ??? “Ok but what if they’re Not.” But, that said, I think it is grossly heteronormative of us to not hold the same standards with get relationships and something we both need to work on as people. Sometimes, tho I dislike it, I wish that Kiri was a girl, so that my friend would like the ship too, and I didn’t feel the need to hide it. I found a lot of people jumping ship for kirimina disheartening, and feel like it’s because she’s a girl and not another boy that it happened. But I look forward to the future of bakushima regardless (end)

People have different shipping preferences, and if someone is prone to shipping more het than lgbt+ ships, or vice versa, this isn’t necessarily problematic. Some people ship pairings that they can easily see themselves in, and for people who are straight, this can leave them seeking out het ships, and gay people seeking out gay ships. There isn’t anything inherently wrong with this and I think it’s probably pretty natural. We like finding ourselves in characters, and for some people as a result of their upbringing, it can be pretty difficult to separate characters from their gender, which says more about society than the individual. Also, canon het ships are more easily at our disposal, as are fandom gay (male) ships since there are so many male characters in most forms of media. 

The problem comes when there’s clearly some homophobia in shipping gay ships, or in internalized sexism when shipping lesbian or straight ships, sexualizing a sexuality that is not your own, or something like this. Although I feel like I should note: since there are so many reasons that go into shipping, the good and the problematic, nothing should be assumed about why someone ships what they ship.

But I do like the point you make about how affection itself is oftentimes equated with romantic or sexual love, because that definitely does happen all too much. And it sucks, because intimacy is an important part of the human experience and we (and therefore our fictional projections as fictional characters) should be able to partake in it if we want to, with our friends, without anyone else assuming romantic or sexual undertones. And when it comes to shipping, it definitely leaves very little wiggle room for authors to write friendships between male and female characters since romantic probability is assumed by the audience without much thought.

As far as Ki/r/iM/i/na goes, we really can’t say for sure. It is a lot more complicated than just saying ‘she’s a girl and it makes the relationship straight therefor it’s easier for a lot of fans to ship them!1!!!’, but…. is that probably a factor for why some people ship it? yeah. Is this the case for everyone who ships it? Not at all.

It sucks that your friend is so blatantly only into het ships. I know that feeling, a lot of my old friends were super homophobic and I couldn’t talk about any lgbt+ matters around them without sparking a debate. These old friends are no longer people I talk to, for this reason and a few others. Not saying that you need to unfriend this person!! You do what you need to do! But uh yah.

Sorry there’s just a lot to unpack here and I know I’m not doing this justice. But honestly, thank you for sending the ask!

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:
Pros:

  • 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!

Cons:

  • 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.

Queue:

  • 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.

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:

what are you suggestions to get someone to read a fic i feel like no one ever reads my stuff

Uhhh, I mean,,,, I never really intended for God Save to be big and the only thing that gives my one-shots any attention is my God Save notoriety and my habit of doing Karli’s exchanges. As much as I would love to say that there’s some rhyme or trick to it, most of it is honestly just luck.

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

anonymous asked:

Don't you think that the reason you get so many asks about the same things over and over again is that those of us who are in the Romelza camp want constant reassurance that Ross loves Demelza deeply, like the kind of love that Drake and Morenna have, an all-consuming first love and forever love? You are very kind to keep answering!

I…..honestly am not quite sure what to say to this.

Firstly, the two relationships are fundamentally different, and Demelza was not Ross’s first love, and never will be. He loved Elizabeth first. A different kind of love, maybe, but still love. She was his first love. Full stop. Nothing can change that.

Secondly, I don’t feel Ross’s love for Demelza is or ever could be an all-consuming love for him. I don’t think it’s in his character to be so consumed by one person. That doesn’t mean he never loves her and her alone, but that it doesn’t consume him in the way that, at the moment in the show, it consumes Drake and Morwenna. I’m not really sure anybody should aspire to that sort of love, because it can be unhealthy and exclude other relationships and loyalties. In the show, it prevents Drake from forming other attachments (romantic or otherwise) that might make him happy. It prevents him from finding fulfillment in his work or his faith. Ross’s love for Demelza doesn’t stop him finding satisfaction in the mine, the farm, his wider endeavours in the county and country. Similarly, Demelza has her children, her friends, the work she does in the village: she finds happiness and satisfaction in those. Neither Drake nor Morwenna is in a position to do that, as things stand in the show, with their all-consuming love.

That said: yes, Ross and Demelza have a very solid, lasting love. It will last for the rest of their lives. The books are proof positive of that. Nothing that happens in s2 or s3 (or in the corresponding books) changes that outcome now because it is a written outcome. It is fact. The books are written, the story is told. The adaptation has and will change some things, but not the basic plotlines.

Thirdly…….I see your point, anon, and I accept that may be true, but I have to say, I’m not here to reassure people. I’m not here to repeat the same points over and over again. You guys know I love Poldark, and love discussing and analysing Poldark……but don’t forget that I’m chronically ill, severely so, and I’m a full-time carer. My energy can be so very limited.

It sometimes feels like people are asking me for something I can’t give them: a reassurance that Ross and Demelza are Soul Mates ™, or that Elizabeth is Evil, or that Ross and Elizabeth were Meant To Be, or….etc, etc, etc. I do try to engage with everyone, I really do, but so much of this is stuff I’ve talked about before, sometimes at great length.

So I guess what I’m saying is that questions that are geared towards reassuring the person asking the question just feel a little taxing, at the moment. Especially when many of the points I use to respond with, I’ve explained before, often multiple times. I hate responding with just a ‘I’ve talked about this before, please check my tag’, absolutely hate it. I feel like I’m being rude and impatient and not giving an anon the response they deserve or want. But it’s not about not wanting to give a full answer; in fact, me saying ‘check my tag’ is me trying to give you more of an answer, because there’s so much there, now.

I feel bad even saying this; I want to have the time and energy to fully answer every question as it comes up, no matter whether I’ve talked about it before, but I just can’t. I just can’t, anon :S I just have so little energy and I really do have to ration it out.

So…I get that people want reassurance. But it’s not what I’m really here for, and in any case, I don’t believe that Ross and Demelza have the kind of love that you seem to be suggesting you want them to have. They have a very real love, they have problems and difficulties, but it’s not a fairytale marriage. That’s not what Winston Graham gave us.

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.
