Kaeri’s Otayuri Fic Rec List  #1

There are so many great Otayuri fics on ao3 and I’ve… pretty much read them all haha. I wish I could include every single one I’ve read on this rec list, but then this list would probably go on forever so here are just some of my absolute favorites! Please go check them out if you have time! I promise you will love them. <3

From Almaty, With Love (ongoing, mature) by @boxwineconfession

I kid you not: as the Otayuri fanbase keeps growing, this fic will become known as THE LEGENDARY MULT-CHAPTERED SLOW BURN OTAYURI FANFIC. Because that’s exactly what it is. The characterization in this fic is unbelievably on point and Otabek and Yuri’s interactions are just so very… them. I greatly enjoy watching both of them suffer from the UST (although they are suffering no longer… heh).

run in my veins (50 sentences format, sfw) by @rovmustang

Absolutely exquisite writing. Some sentences will make you laugh, some will make you cry and all of them will make you feel like you’ve had the breath knocked out of you. I literally just stared up at my ceiling for ten minutes after reading this just contemplating the beauty of Otabek and Yuri’s relationship.

Feet first (Don’t Fall) (oneshot, mature, underage) by @gunboots

This was the first Otayuri fanfic I ever read and it just… blew me away? Otabek’s voice is so beautiful, clear and distinct, and you get the pleasure of watching both him and his relationship with Yuri grow over the years. There is underage sexual contact when Yuri is 17 (which, I would like to point out for the antis, is older than 16, Russia and Kazakhstan’s age of consent).

soldier boy, tripping over himself to win my praise (ongoing, sfw) by @thissupposedcrime 

This is a very unique fic with a semi non-linear format and a rich, engaging story! It explores Otabek and Yuri’s relationship over the span of ten years, and it’s really just… riveting.

Golden Days (oneshot, sfw) by @alcoholicrevo

The CUTEST fic you will ever have the pleasure of reading. I almost suffocated myself from muffling my screams with my pillow when the fluff got too real.

melt me down (oneshot, sfw) by @ohhotlamb

This fic is so gentle, romantic and enchanting that my heart just swelled with overwhelming love and affection for these two. Otabek is absolutely precious, and Yuri is smitten (the feeling is mutual!).

Endurance and Peach Tea (oneshot, sfw) by chapstickaddict (I don’t know their tumblr sadly)

This fic was such an emotional rollercoaster for me and I couldn’t help but drown in the wonderful feels. The ending killed me in the best way.

the naming of cats (oneshot, sfw) by @csoru

This fic cut me so deeply and made my heart bleed… But the ending plastered a nice band aid over the wound so it’s all good! All jokes aside, please go and read this fic; it’s so hauntingly beautiful that you’ll be aching from the feels for days.

on the verge of running into your arms (oneshot, sfw) by @clears-jellyfish-dress

Oh god, this fic highlights how utterly healthy, loving and caring Otabek and Yuri’s relationship is. Otabek is literally the bestest, BESTEST (I know that’s not a word but it gets my point across) friend in the world, and Yuri clearly agrees.

holding out for a hero (oneshot, sfw) by @mother-iwa-chan

I literally could not stop smiling while I read this fic. SO FREAKING SWEET AND ADORABLE AND JUST. AHHHHHH. SOMEONE HOLD ME PLEASE.

write my name on your skin (twoshot, sfw) by @altisetsky (one of my favorite blogs on tumblr btw 8D)

A refreshing spin on the soulmate AU trope! Ah, Yuri’s pining is just so freaking adorable to read…

down for the count, and I’m drownin’ in ‘em (oneshot, sfw) by @unhookingstarswithoutpermission

This fic killed me? Yeah, I just cannot get over how tender, loving and supportive Otabek and Yuri are to one another!

If the sparks didn’t glow (we would know) (oneshot, sfw) by @slumbrslumbrs

This fic made me smile so hard my face hurt. Everyone is so protective of Yuri, but Otabek is the best and purest bro. :)

Please go and kudos all of these lovely fics! Also, please, PLEASE comment if you can; all these writers deserve so much love, support and praise for their hard work.

A huge thank you to all the writers on this list (and all fanfic writers in general) for sharing their beautiful creations with us! I love and appreciate you guys so much <3

I’m sure we all know how tricky time management and productivity can be, and also how crucial it is to be good at it, to succeed. So, I’d like to share a strategy of effectively managing all of those tasks you have at hand! 

Introducing Dwight Eisenhower, 34th president of the United States. He lived a super productive life, and during his presidency he implemented many transformational programs including NASA and the Atomic Energy act. Before then, he was a 5 star general in the US army, serving as the supreme commander, he was also the president of Columbia University… I could go on. 

My point is, he did all of this while still having time for personal interests and hobbies like painting and golfing. He was amazing at time management, and his most famous method of handling tasks, is called the Eisenhower Matrix

It’s a method of prioritising and sorting out your to-dos based on urgency and importance.  

It is super helpful is making us question what is important and actually necessary to do. I think that we often fill up our time with tasks that do not help us in reaching our core goals, and this method helps us narrow down our todos, saving us from wasting time, energy, and resources.

The 2nd and 3rd quadrant (not urgent important, urgent-not important) is what really minimises our productivity, if not properly managed and scheduled

I personally think its a fairly good way of understanding all that you have to do, what you should do first, and how you can deal with the rest. You don’t have to necessarily plan everything out this way, but its a good mindset to adopt when managing your workload. 

I’m so so awful at being concise (I’m so sorry for the long post!!) But I help this has helped you guys. Hopefully I’m going to post a printable of the matrix in the near future, so keep an eye out for that :)

What is important is seldom urgent and what is urgent is seldom important.
-Dwight Eisenhower

Dirt

Originally posted by shawnlaveau

When hoodoo was created, most of the people using it did not have ready access to the best ingredients and often had to hide their practice. Consequently, a lot of what was used had to be things people could obtain. This is why hoodoo uses various roots, sticks, herbs, honey, sugar, and other household supplies readily available. There is no exception for dirt. Different kind of dirt is used for different kind of things but some examples include:

Dirt from the crossroads: used for many things including hexing/cursing, summoning certain spirits, opening roads, etc.

Dirt from a bank: Most commonly used in money work. I swear by bank dirt. It adds so much potency to money workings and every time I have used it I have gotten great results. Could also be used in works to get a loan, get approved for a house, relieve debt, etc.

Dirt from a church: This is usually used for works that have to do with cleansing, healing, or otherwise “holy” matters.

Graveyard dirt: A staple in hoodoo, used for many different things including curses, healing, ancestor work, goofer dust, hot foot powder, etc.

Some of these are examples of things that have been used traditionally and throughout hoodoo’s history. However, all types of folk magick utilize whatever you have.

I have in the past used dirt from a car dealership(to obtain a car), dirt from a red ant farm(defensive/hexing), dirt from a destroyed/abandoned building(defensive/hexing), and dirt from a specific apartment complex I wanted to live in. *not all of these are my ideas, but some of them are* 

Folk Magick is and was about using whatever you have around you, and often whatever cost less. Do not ever feel like you can’t do effective, life changing magick with twigs and leaves. You can. Our ancestors did, you can too.

blue night radio ♡ 170309
translation: u. kim, soompi

(the leaving announcement - longer translation) jonghyun: when i first started hosting this show, i wanted to create a space where people, including myself, could set their hearts at rest, no matter where they were. three years later, this space has grown into a whole world in itself. it taught me about so many things i’ve never experienced, and i’ve also revealed a lot to my listeners. this space allowed us to come together in one place regardless of where we were physically. some people joined us from the other side of the world and at a different time, but we were were still in the same space. physical space had nothing to do with us, and i hope it continues to be that way.

do you know the feeling when you find something you love so much that you’re not sure what you should do to take good care of it? blue night has turned into something like that for me, and now i don’t now what to do. i guess every beginning has an end. i have something to tell everyone today. for various reasons, i will be taking some time away from the physical space of blue night i thought my listeners should be the first ones to know. i will continue to be in the same spiritual space we created.

i apologize. i said i would stay for a long time, but [i had to do this] because of my schedule and health. i’m sure there will be a time when we can share our stories with each other again. as i’ve always said, i have a certain mindset that i set for myself as a radio dj. while i’m away, i will continue thinking about those things and polish myself before i come back. i will definitely come back.

Who Companions on Tumblr

Ian: The Science Side of Tumblr. Every so often makes unsubtle jokes about alien life existing and tags Barbara, Susan and Vicki in it.

Nyssa: The Science Side of Tumblr 2.0. Occasionally corrects Ian’s science, leading to long discussions into the night on the subject, and has become good online friends with him. Text posts complaining about her irrational siblings.

Susan: Loves pretty aesthetics (like flower crowns and space), tagging mutuals in stuff, reblogging stuff from Ian and Barbara, and meme culture.

Evelyn: Reblogs recipes, practical travel suggestions, crazy university life stories (and adds her own), and awesome history facts. Loves @historyisntboring

Sarah Jane: Posts lots of photos of her happy friends and family, and public warnings to stay away from certain famous places or household items for the time being.
Every so often, odd posts in an unknown font are posted, often about computer-related humour. All such posts are tagged “Mr Smith speaks”, despite Sarah Jane having confirmed that she has never been married. Conspiracy theories about Mr Smith’s identity has become a meme. (*photo of Obama on a computer* “Obama is Mr Smith!!”)

Turlough: Almost exclusively creates popular short text posts about how much he hates Earth. People assume they’re shitposts. They’re not. He really hates Earth that much.

Sam: Used to be a textbook-stereotypical SJW. After three years offline, she realised that lecturing at and insulting random strangers on the internet isn’t really as effective as she used to think. She posts a lot less now, but still reblogs posts about stories she thinks more people need to hear. Likes and reblogs everything that Izzy creates.

Izzy: Didn’t discover side blogs until it was too late. Her blog is an absolute mess of sci-fi, superheroes and pop-culture. Wouldn’t be too bad if she could tag to save her life, but she can’t. Makes lots of popular edits. Reblogs all the signal boost stories that Sam posts.

Kroton: Somehow maintains a blog from within the multiversal spectrum. No one knows how. He and Izzy are always tagging each other in things, and he often posts reactions to various tv shows Izzy has told him to watch.

K9: Liveblogs chess matches with the Doctor. Everyone loves when he wins, because he always posts a photo of the Doctor’s face the exact moment (calculated to the nearest microsecond) that he realises he’s lost. These photos have become popular reaction pics.

Compassion: Is notorious for spamming the dashes of her followers, because she trawls through Tumblr on her earpiece and reblogs like 500 popular posts a day. People usually think she’s a bot until they find the one-in-a-thousand personal text post, which almost always starts “You will not believe what f**king Fitz has done now”.

Frobisher: Lots of photos of the Doctor looking ridiculous, and gifs of penguins tagged “me”.

The TARDIS: Follows all of her crew’s blogs. Claims that it’s only to monitor for S.O.S. messages, but really she enjoys interacting with them on something other than the usual boring three or four n-space dimensions. Posts jokes about multi-dimensional engineering that only other TARDISes on Tumblr understand.

So
Jamie has been including “G-Foot” (which has been used in past fases, if I’m not mistaken) in some of his images, more specifically, on the members clothing. The same appeared on the website when it came back (posted on Reddit by one of its users).
Could this mean a possible, let’s say, clothing line for Phase 4?

Noodle did mention something about design in one of her newer interviews (I think it was something like shoes). And she has been following many fashion related Instagram accounts. She even posed for a fashion magazine.

Let’s hope so ♡

Ok so I really love how special The Foxhole Court is, but sometimes I get kinda sad that it’s “"only”“ self-published(even though I’m grateful), because it is truly a fantastic, beautiful Netflix quality story but it doesn’t get the marketing attention it potentially could. So many people wouldn’t know about it without tumblr, including me. It is truly Good Quality™ fiction in that it doesn’t adhere to all the typical cliche tropes and it doesn’t hold back in telling the story it needs to be in order to attract a wider audience. I don’t know what I’m trying to say all I know is aftg is truly one of a kind. Never let it die.

dating would include's // ezra miller

request by anon– Hey guys, not sure if you’d do this but could you write some headcanons for ezra? Like maybe dating him or liking each other and realizing you’re falling in love? I’d love it if you could write these yall :’)

a/n – I LOVE EZRA MILLER I REALLY DO I REALLY WANNA MEET HIM AND HUG HIM FOR ETERNITY YAY

  • You two would meet because you were a new photographer and was supposed to work with him on one or two projects
  • (Ezra has so many swoon worthy model pics in existence but Wikipedia and IMDb doesn’t say he’s a model?? so imma just assume he did modelling)
  • You had a different style from the other photographers he’s worked with before, and had different instructions to how he should pose and stuff. He finds out he likes your style over the others.
  • He also noticed your great looks /personality /character /attitude /intellect /(your best features). Drawn to it, he would try flirting constantly, but because it was your first time working with a real model, you thought they were all as playful and happy-go-lucky as he was.
  • Besides, he seems so cute and genuine and lovely… so you flirt back.
  • You two would call each other cheesy names, like him calling you “buttercup” and you calling him “honey” or “darling.”
  • Then there’s the smirks and wriggle of shoulders and eyebrows, before you two snap out of it and laugh.
  • Yes, laughter. There’s so much laughter between you two, it makes flirting  much easier and keeps the conversation light and casual.
  • He realises he likes that. But any guy who is interested in someone would like to take it up to the next level of ‘flirting’. So, taking a bold move, the following day you receive a single red rose from him, with a note and a cheesy pick-up line.
  • The pick-up line would be a Harry Potter based one, (because we all saw that interview ;) ), and after he sent it, he immediately regretted it because if you didn’t get it, it would be awkward on both sides.
  • He thinks that he might have very well doomed your relationship if you didn’t get the reference, and you might think he’s an ultimate nerd.
  • So the next time you guys meet to complete the photoshoot, he awkwardly asks if you got the Harry Potter reference.
  • Little does he know, you had almost swooned from the pick-up line, because all your exes never got the point of Harry Potter, and you were a big big big fan.
  • So very enthusiastically, you squealed and almost tackled him with a hug when he brought it up, but clumsily tries to redraw at the last moment, so you kinda crashed into him instead, knocking over a lot of lights and backdrop equipment as both of you fall.
  • Very cliché–ly, your lips crashed together, with you on top, and the entire studio goes, “OOHHH” because your flirting hasn’t gone unnoticed by them for the entire project.
  • When you get off him, scrambling to your feet and stammering non-stop, he blushes too, but then very romantically cups your face and kiss you again gently.
  • Imagine his lips though. He would be soft and hesitant, wondering when you would push him off until he realises you won’t, then he would deepen the kiss by tilting your head and oH MY GOD WHAT HAVE I DONE.
  • Cue the “AWWW” from the other cast.
  • Then he pulls off, grinning so hard he thinks his face would spilt from it all, and you blush and make weird stuttering sounds. You try to shut up and stop your face from burning, but he finds it really cute that you’re flustered.
  • Then he clears his throat and officially asks you out to dinner that night, with a deep bow and everything dramatically because EZRA IS A CUTE GENTLEMAN AND WILL MAKE EVERYTHING LESS EMBARRASSING FOR YOU
  • You laugh and of course say yes.
  • Then you realise that the entire studio was silent since the kiss, and that the guys were staring and the girls were almost swooning from the whole romance of it.
  • (the girls of the studio would have very high expectations on how guys would ask them out ;DDD)

BONUS:

- whenever you two need either a model or a photographer, you would automatically get each other, so he helps you out with your individual projects and you help him take nice photos

DOUBLE BONUS:

- when Ezra becomes globally known for FBAWTFT, he constantly asks you if his performance was OK and if anyone likes Credence or anything, you would assure him that it was brilliant, going as far as to threaten him with the search results of the gradence tag on Tumblr (whoops)

- also, the entire HP fandom would just die of fluffness when they find the photoshoots you two do together

Living in Gotham

- School drills include how to deal with a fear gas attack and what to do if the any of the rouges attack.

- Most citizens could beat up thugs in other cities without a blink of the eye.

- The schools have programs in place if they feel a student is likely to turn to the criminal life.

- Instead of kids playing I spy game with different objects, they play I spy the bat.

- Local tabloids are half the Wayne family and half the different vigilantes that dot the roof tops.

- Collecting batarangs is a thing. Like there are so many hanging out on streets. Constant remembers to not let children have them.

- Gas mask are a common item in most households. You always need to be prepared.

- Apartment contracts having rules about no vigilant activity. 

- School closing due to hostage situations or chemical attack on the city. It’s like snow days and extra days are built in the calendar for it. 

- Nightwing is often voted best looking Gotham citizens every year. 

- Conspiracy online websites are a thing. Like who is batman, how do they afford it, and the most important question; who is single.  

fliegend-nilpferd  asked:

For this class of mine we are supposed to design a theoretical restaurant. I was the only person to decide to base theirs out of an existing location. It's a historical theater where i live in anchorage Alaska. It's been closed for years. Called the 4th avenue theater. I can't find many good photos of the inside but I'm told it's art deco interior was gorgeous. I was wondering if you could explain art deco a bit more, because I don't seem to be able to pick up the general feel it gives people.

You are right, there are a very limited number of images from the Fourth Avenue Theatre in Anchorage, Anchorage, AK (included in this post are a number of images from the Library of Congress).

Two whole years. When I first made this blog, I never expected that I would get more than a handful of followers, let alone the 1.4k+ wonderful followers that I have now. I remember stressing out about whether or not anyone would even want to write with me. Two years later and I’m still completely flabbergasted to find that people enjoy my writing and my characterization, but it honestly means so much to me. This blog has seen me through some major ups and downs in my life, and while there has been some rocky water, I’m eternally grateful for everything that I’ve experienced here, for the people I’ve met, and the amazing friendships that I’ve created. I’m sorry I’m not doing anything cool like a giveaway or anything, but I did at least want to give shoutouts to some of my favorite blogs, the people I admire, and the people I’ve been so lucky to call my friends. Thank you all for an amazing two years, and here’s hoping 2017 is good to all of us! You all mean the world to me. <333
