i just don't know what to do with myself pt. 2

august 21st aka fanfic writers appreciation day.

i saw this post going around and i’ve decided to make a post to a) recommend you some great stories and amazing writers, b) give some sort of feedback. i don’t really have that much time to read anymore, so this won’t be that long. as soon as i get more time, i’ll start reading again :) the list is in no specific order, i was going through my “following” list and through my fic recs blog.


@noona-la-la-la  — i recommend literally everything noona ever wrote. i love her style and her plots and the fact that she always manages to exceed my expectations. she’s one of those writers whose stories aren’t just about the smut, which i love. of course, the amazing smut is just a bonus. my favorite story of hers is either unexpected or conditioned (which is also one of my fave tae stories ever. e v e r.) and her vmin threesome the group project is amazing! i’m so far up her ass it’s not even funny, but i seriously love everything about her blog and her writing.


@ellieljade  — amazing plots! a m a z i n g. and the dirty talk! the smut scenes are just too good, and mr.min is my favorite yoongi series. i love the plot, i love the fact that the characters aren’t labeled as good or bad, there’s a lot of grey areas and you never know what to expect. if you want to cry, read her this is how you lose her series and come bitch about it with me. and did i mention sub namjoon? because damn, watch me is amazing.


@avveh — some of the best dirty talk and pwp ever. i enjoy reading her stories from the first one she posted, which is reveries. i don’t even watch the show it’s based on, but i love the series. emily can really suck you into the plot, regardless of the smut. of course, you know me, my favorite is jealousy games because jungkook AND jimin. you know.


@xhixtape — i could go on about lila forever. the flow in her stories is amazing, i love the slow build ups in some stories, and i love the smut in all of them. she’s a huge inspiration for me and her work has inspired a lot of mine, i think i might be her biggest fan. read everything! my favorites are kitten’s got his tongue, good mornings, and vibrations. vibrations, man!!!

@tayegi — lu is one of the OGs of bts fanfics, so i’m sure you’re all already reading her stories. i lover her ocs, i love that they know how to speak for themselves and that they know what they want and aren’t afraid to go for it. my favorites are fuck, marry, kill (because JIMIN), the golden boy because T A E, and friendship goals because TAEGI.


@kimtrain — okay, one good purr had me hooked ! i loved the slow burn and tae′s character and everything about it, from the plot to her style. that’s also one of my favorite tae stories ever.  also, the wings of a devil? b o m b. she has a huge masterlist and i need to read all of her stories.


@floralseokjin — blessed is the day i found out about jordan’s blog. i love everything she writes, i don’t care what member the stories are about because they’re that good. i love her style because it makes me get into the story so much that i can’t stop reading. the first story i read was salt and shadow and i still love it. her jin stories are the best out there and i love reading them. show me might be my fave. also, playing with fire is bomb.


@gukvory —  can you feel it, sugar? is a masterpiece. actually, everything on this masterlist is a masterpiece. i love her writing style, i love the flow, i love the feeling i get when reading her stories. just read everything of hers, you won’t regret it.


@kittae — eva writes for other groups as well! i’ve only read most of her bts stories, and my faves are v-card because it’s the right amount of everything, and favourites and servants is so good! there’s still so many stories on her masterlist to read and i can’t wait to read more. 


@dailydoseofdia — i’m gonna recommend carousel because it’s one of the stories i’ve been meaning to read, but just didn’t have enough time for, even though everyone is praising it. i’ve read dia’s fics and they’re amazing, so i don’t doubt that carousel is just as great. lick was amazing and it’s the first thing i’ve read on her blog.


@chinnychimchim — ah. ah! one of my favorite writers. i seriously love everything she posts, i don’t ever check who the story is about. my favorite has to be reset. it’s such a good story and i haven’t read anything similar, so i love it. cognitive dissonance is also a must read. just read the entire masterist while you’re at it, it’s worth it.


@kstopping  — who doesn’t want a good mmf threesome with vmon? that’s exactly what cinnamon sugar is and i LOVE IT. also tags that crack me up every time.


@jungkookfortunekookies  — for those who don’t read smut, there’s a ton of popular stories on her masterlist, including jungkook roommate series which is so fun and easy to read!


@jeylovestoblog — i’ve heard jey writes amazing reader/girl/member threesomes, so i need to check them out, and i recommend you do the same. she updates often, so i’m sure you’ll find something for yourself.


@rapmonluv — all i’ve read so far is nightcall and it’s enough for me to know i’ll love everything else.


@jingukz — sarah’s stories are amazing and you know that i prefer smut, but her stories are that good. she doesn’t need smut to pull you in, but when it’s there, it’s great. bliss among sinners is probably my fave, but the first one i’ve read is cry me a river and i’m still not over it.


@emboyz — i still need to go through her masterlist, but i’ve read good catch and it’s great!


@pjxmin — i don’t get how everyone’s not talking about her writing. caught in a lie is amazing, proposals is such a good story, her writing is amazing and her stories are fun and they just pull you in. amazing writer!


@cosykims — merlot murders (the crimson killer, kisses of carmine) is the most underrated series i’ve ever read. it has everything and i can’t praise it enough, seriously. you need to read it!


@jiminniemouse — i think i’ve read everything of hers and there wasn’t a single story i didn’t like. i love her style, i love her plots, i just love everything about her writing. purple jewels is so well written and interesting, i can’t get enough. seriously, i recommend everything.


@wonhopes — amanda’s writing is amazing. i think you’ve all read not so honest, but i think my favorite might be cat got your tongue because TAEEEE.


@mindfullofcrazy — i absolutely loved give me love!!!


@hobibliophile — i think i’ve read everything on her masterlist and i loved it! my favorites are take a break (jihope threesome ftw), blue blooded (prince jin!!!), and don’t care about the presents (namjoon being a cutie).


@kainks — i love her writing style! my favorites are new guy and triplicity because damn, hoseok and yoongi threesome? i’m in. orange tulips is on my to read list, i’ve heard great things about it.


@versigny — if you haven’t read miss dial, i don’t know what you’re doing. read it. now. i love it!


@baeseoul  — protege is probably my favorite jungkook series ever. it’s so well written, i love the plot, i love the characters and their flaws, i just love everything about the story. destruction of a muse is on my to read list. just great writing in general, one of my favorite writers.


@protectaetae — i love her writing style! one night snap pt 1 and 2 saved me.


@taehyung-the-baehyung  — closer is amazing and so is the suit and tie series! amazing :)


@jheartseok — i still haven’t read nude, not flowers and i suck because i’ve heard it’s an amazing story. i need to read everything of hers.


@roseok — just read everything. amazing writing.


@drquinzelharleeni’m not a kid is a great series. there’s so much more i have to read from her masterlist, but i like her writing style!


there are a lot of writers who i still need to check out and i’m looking forward to it. i’m sorry if i’ve forgotten someone! if i’ve ever given you a compliment about your writing, i truly meant it. i hope i’ve included everyone. if you go check out these writers, please don’t ask them about updates :)

I Don’t Mean It Pt 5

Previous Parts: Part 1 Part 2 Part 3 Part 4

After dinner and with what Taehyung said, you were heartbroken. You believed his words, although you knew he would sometimes say things he didn’t mean when he was upset. But you knew inside that this time was different. He wasn’t going to ask for forgiveness this time around.

Did he even consider you his friend this entire time? Did any of them consider you a friend? Or were they really only nice because you had information about them. You loved each of them dearly, always wanting the best of them. Ever since they moved in next door, your life had changed for the better. You had always had a special place in your heart for Taehyung too. The way he made you feel when you were with him was indescribable. 

But it seems that all of it was a lie. 

“If he wants me out of his life, then that’s what I’ll give him” you say silently to yourself.


The award show season came and went by in a flash. And for some reason, Tae was itching to text you to tell you all about it. About how happy he was for winning awards. About how he wished you were there to celebrate with them.

But he dismissed any of those feelings and replaced them with his anger. He saw the other boys call and tell you the good news, but he kept his distance, not wanting to ruin their fun. 

A few weeks prior, the group’s manager came up to Taehyung regarding an article that a reporter was going to publish. Within the article was a detailed description of all the places Taehyung frequented in secret as to avoid the eyes of the public. In this article was a detailed description of all the small things that not many people knew about. 

Tae was of surprised. Where had this reporter gotten all this information? His manager had said that he had gotten this information from you when he found out that you both were neighbors. He said that you had received a sum of money for the information. Thankfully his manager had “stopped the article from being published” but he scolded Taehyung for being close with just some girl.

And with that, Taehyung was fuming. He swore never to tell you anything ever again and to have you out of his life. But a voice inside him told him otherwise and he couldn’t push you out completely. He still couldn’t. And he still didn’t tell the other guys yet because he knew it would have only distracted them.


A/N: I think I’m going to end part 5 here for now. I wanted to make this longer, but I’m going to hold myself back and keep it for part 6. What do you think is going to happen? Who wants a part 6? Let me know!! I also want to thank you all for the support once again. And thank you for understanding for when I didn’t post last night! 

Writing Tips - YOI Edition

I decided to start my little series of writing tips with a Yuri On Ice specific post because that’s the fandom I’m most familiar with. While I’ll make examples from the anime, keep in mind that most of these things can be taken in a more general way and applied to other fandoms as well.

These are only tips and if you don’t follow them that’s perfectly fine, your fanfiction is valid.


LANGUAGES:

Different characters speak different languages with each other, and implementing that in your fic can make it feel more realistic. That doesn’t mean that you have to include a full dialogue in a language other than the one of your fic (although a few words thrown here and there like terms of endearment are always good, and even a couple of full sentences are fine, just remember to translate them in the notes), but there are ways to show this even if you don’t do that. Simply have your POV character hear a dialogue and not understanding it, and asking about it later (or just wondering about it in their head). Another small thing is to not have the POV character be surprised by this (unless for very specific reasons): they’re used to being in international environments and to hearing different languages being spoken by other skaters, so it’s usually not a big deal to them.

Another tip is to understand what being bilingual (or tri- or multilingual) means. We don’t randomly start mixing two languages. The only instance where I’ve had that happen to me is when for some reason a word in one of the language I speak has to be in my sentence, then it might happen that I actually keep talking in that language. 

Example:

Gli ho detto che è bravo nel multitasking, and like-”

As you can see, the “and like” is some of those things we’re used to saying to connect sentences (like “you know” and other stuff), so it’s something easy to slip into if we’ve just said a word in English. You also see I stopped the sentence there because that’s what I feel happens, you don’t go on speaking in a different language for ten minutes, you usually notice right away and stop yourself.

That’s a very specific example of course, but what will mostly happen in your fic is that a character will switch back and forth effortlessly.

Examples: 

Yuuri is talking to Victor in English, then his mom brings them homemade katsudon and Yuuri thanks her and holds a short conversation with her in Japanese. Then he goes back to speaking to Victor.

Yuri and Otabek are speaking on skype in Russian. Otabek’s sister enters his room and asks him in Kazakh to help her with her homework, and he tells her (in Kazakh) that he’ll be right there, then he proceeds to explain Yuri what happened in Russian and they say goodbye and hang up.

Yuri and Victor are talking at the rink in Russian, then Yuuri skates towards him, and both Yuri and Victor switch to English to include Yuuri in the conversation.


Who speaks what language:

Generally speaking, all skaters interact in English.

Victor, Yuri, Mila, Georgi, Yakov, Lilia, Nikolai all speak Russian among each other. They might use English around other people if they don’t want to be rude to them, but in general they’ll have a tendency to keep speaking in Russian to each other, no matter how fluent in English they are.

Victor speaks fluent French as well as Russian and English, so it’s safe to believe that he and Chris speak French when they communicate.

Looking at the Japanese side of things, Yuuri, Yuuko (probably her husband too), Minako and Mari all speak fluent English, contrary to Yuuri’s parents who don’t appear to speak it at all. The triplets are 6 years old so they most definitely only speak Japanese. I headcanon that Minami doesn’t really speak a good English since he doesn’t appear to have competed much or at all outside of Japan, but I don’t think we have enough info about him so do what you want with him.

Otabek’s first language is Kazakh. It uses the same alphabet as Russian but it’s a different thing, but Kazakhs generally learn Russian and Otabek is definitely fluent in it. He’s also lived in the US and in Canada so he’s fluent in English as well. When he interacts with Yuri you should keep in mind that they’re speaking Russian.

Of course, when writing post-canon, it’s entirely possible and even very likely that the couples (or even friends, for example Yuuri and Phichit probably learned a little of Thai and Japanese respectively) pick up each other’s languages. Victor will learn Japanese, Yuuri will learn Russian, Emil will learn Italian. I headcanon that in some couples only one of them will learn the other’s language (for example I don’t think it’d be very useful for Yuri to learn more than a little basic Kazakh), but that’s absolutely up to you.

Another thing I personally like to do in my fanfics whenever there’s characters with different nationalities is to remind the reader that everyone has different accents. You don’t have to point it out in every sentence, but even just doing it once in your whole fic will make it feel, once again, more realistic. Another accent fun fact: at the beginning it’s hard to understand an accent you’ve never heard before, but it gets easier the more you keep hearing it. Try to think of ways to show that in your fanfic if that’s something you want to do.


NICKNAMES: 

Another important aspect in YOI is the use of nicknames, like Yurio or Katsudon. The thing is, not everyone uses them, and not in every context. If you want to use them in a fic and be true to canon, learn who uses them and why.

Yurio 

is a nickname given by Mari to Yuri P. to avoid confusion between him and her brother Yuuri. Yuuri, Victor and Yuuri’s family and friends are the only ones using it. Yuri hates it. He wouldn’t use it for himself, so avoid using it in your fic unless:

  • the characters I mentioned above are talking to him
  • one of the characters above is also the POV character (especially if it’s first person)
  • Yuri himself is complaining about it

Especially avoid using it when:

  • it’s Yuri’s POV
  • it’s the POV of someone close to Yuri or who knew Yuri before canon (like his grandpa, Yakov, Mila, etc)
  • it’s Otabek’s POV. He’s his friend (or more) and he would use his given name (unless for some reason he wanted to annoy him - which he probably would at some point lol)

Yura/Yurochka 

I don’t feel educated enough to talk about this myself, I could only say what I saw in the anime but you should definitely read this post because it’s well done and explains who would call Yuri Yura or Yurochka.

Katsudon

Only Yuri calls Yuuri Katsudon (sometimes he switches it for pig). Victor called Yuuri little piglet or something at the beginning of canon, but definitely doesn’t do it later on.

(Beka)

This is not canon yet, but it’s a really widespread nickname for Otabek within the fandom, that only Yuri (or Otabek’s family) uses.


In general, I think nicknames rub off on the people we talk to. So for example, when I write Otayuri I sometimes have Otabek think of Yuuri as “Katsudon”. Why? Because at least at the beginning he would only hear Yuri talk about him, and Yuri would refer to him with that nickname. He would probably not call Yuuri like that directly in a dialogue, but that’s all just speculation. I just added this bit because I think it’s one of the many ways to both build someone’s characterization and show instead of telling the kind of relationship two characters have.


Other writing tips: (coming soon!)

general pt.1 | general pt.2 | plot | dialogues | characterization

soul-rin-natsu  asked:

Can you recommend any klance fics?.

I can definitely recommend lots of klance fics. As in, lots lots. I am not completely sure what you are looking for/what you have already read though, so I’m just gonna list some of my favorite authors with some of my favorite fics. 

Quick additional info: there are no explicit fics on here, though some are rated mature. All of the stories have klance as their only ship but since I intended this to be author recs rather than fic recs, I will mention what kinds of other ships appear in other fics. 

Now then, here you go, in no particular order:

manamune

- Crossroads (106k): not quite canon verse, not quite AU - check the summary

- Plunged (6k): canon verse, Lance teaches Keith how to swim

Roommates (6k): modern AU, Artist!Keith, Photographer!Lance, exactly what the title says

This author’s writing is amazingly smooth and I particularly enjoy their Keith. Crossroads was my favorite fic for a long, long time until I found some others that were just as good :D [this author also wrote some nsfw and sheith]

magisterpavus 

- He Who Fights Monsters (65k): AU, there are dragons

This author has a style of writing that makes you forget that time exists. Like, you read their stories, look up 2 hours later and go “what the hell I only just started reading 5 minutes ago”. Their fics are pretty action-heavy but the romance part never falls short. [they wrote a lot of nsfw, their newest fic is shklance]

mackerelmademedoit

- Entangled (102k): canon verse, Keith and Lance get mind-melded

- Right-hand Man (4k): canon verse, Keith approaches Lance after the end of season 2 to talk about their roles from now on

Amazing characterizations here. I particularly enjoyed the OS because it seemed like something that genuinely could happen like this in canon… sadly I don’t think it will, but one can dream, right :’D Also amazing art! [they wrote some nsfw]

redburn

- it had to be you (9k): modern AU, Keith and Lance are professors, lots of flirting

- Echoes In Your Mind (7k): canon verse, Keith is turning Galra

- let the whole world know (4k): modern AU, soulmates AU

I honestly don’t know why I like this author so much? Probably because they can squeeze an entire story into less than 10k words, complete with character development and appearances from friends etc. I liked many more of their OS but there are just so many, you should check it out for yourself. [they wrote some nsfw and shallura]

varelsen

- Not That Bad (68k): modern AU, socially anxious!Keith, lots and lots of fluff

- just like that (10k): canon verse, Lance struggles with his crush on Keith

this author just? makes reading feel so good? so relaxing?? Their style is focused on conveying emotions and flows really nicely, I strongly recommend to give it a try. [their newest story is nsfw and includes lancelot]

battleshidge (Amiria_Raven)

- Drive Me Crazy (8k): modern AU, lots of flirting and stupid pick-up lines

- Next Level (33k; WIP): modern AU, online gaming, they know each other but they don’t know that they know each other

The style of writing is really, really good and I love how everyone’s friendships get portrayed. The author is also pretty good at writing conflicted emotions. [they wrote some shallura and shidge]

aknightley

- it’s all in my head (8k): canon verse, mind meld

This author is super good with emotions. You always end up feeling what the characters are feeling and I’d definitely recommend going through their other fics as well - once again, there are just so many that I won’t list them all. [they wrote some nsfw and shallura]

lemoninagin

- You Can Fog Up My Windows Anytime (3k): modern AU, all the awkward flirting

Another author that has a fantastic style of writing and portrays the characters really well. Also another author that wrote so many good things that I can’t possibly put them all on here. [they wrote some nsfw, sheith, shklance, shallura- lots of stuff, check the tags]

MilkTeaMiku

- Moonset Deep (50k, WIP): mermaid AU, lance is the mermaid

- The Quiet (40k, WIP): ghost AU, lance is the ghost

- 7 Days Series (pt 1 - 30k, pt 2 - 30k, pt 3 - 4k): canon verse, lance/keith get turned into babies

Amazing writing, plot-orientated. Don’t let that fool you though, the emotions never fall short. [they wrote some shallura, shance and other ships - also their fics aren’t rated. the ones listed are entirely sfw]

Zizzani

- Drive It Like You Mean It (94k): modern AU, street racing AU, it gets pretty intense later

This writer has a really fluent and nice style of writing and they somehow manage to easily let lots of characters interact. Everyone feels extremely in character and nothing feels forced. Also I know nothing about cars and yet their fics belong to my favorites, so give it a try. [they wrote some shallura]

shipstiel

- Of Don Juan And Elvis (3k): modern AU, soulmate AU

- Barbie Girl (2k): modern AU, soulmate AU, continuation

I’m not sure whether it’s just me but no matter what fic of them I read, they always feel– soft. Easy. Something good for in-between. One of their fics (not the ones listed here) has some pretty heavy topics in it and yet I still feel like that. [they wrote some shallura]

Gigapoodle

- A Moment in the Snow (3k): canon verse, Galra!Keith, snowball fights, fluff

- Carpe Diems and Chrysanthemums (14k): modern AU, hanahaki disease, trans Lance, angst with a happy ending

- A Quarter Past Midnight (14k): canon verse, trans Keith, angst with a happy ending

This author is amazing at writing angst. It just always hits you right in the feels. Like damn. I adore their writing so much but ho boy I was too scared to click the one Chara Death fic they wrote. I couldn’t do that to myself, the two longer OS that I listed here already gave me enough feelings. [they wrote some shallura]

Trashness 

- Nightmares (15k): canon verse, sleeping together, as in snuggling, fluff

- Costumed Identities (42k): modern AU, cosplay AU, they know each other but they don’t know they know each other

This author writes Keith’s and Lance’s interactions really nicely. They also never fail to make me smile/laugh with their fics, they are all really cute!! Lots of light heartened stuff here.

SKayLanphear

- Running Flat (11k): canon verse, thought sharing, lance is trying to figure out who has the crush on him

- A Commutal Contract (24k, WIP): canon verse, bed sharing

I really really really enjoy this author’s Lance!! He feels incredibly in character and I swear I can see him act in canon just like he does in the fics. Their style of writing is fluent, nice and adapts really well to the situation.


[I also really enjoy witty_name’s and freshia’s fics, both of whom usually put background shallura into their fics though so I couldn’t list them here]


Aaaand that’s it for now! :D If you have a specific length/specific topics/specific ratings in mind for what you want to read, feel free to send another message!! You can also visit the fic rec tag on my blog, maybe you’ll find something else there.

/EDIT: now there is a part two with some other of my favorite fics

no time pt.2 ~jonah marais

a/n: jonah’s pov :))


“hey jonah, zach and i are gonna go get some food do you want an-” corbyn asked me as he walked through my bedroom door but cut himself off when he saw what i was looking at. “aw, dude,” he sighed, taking a seat on the end of my bed. i didn’t even try to hide what i was looking at anymore. i had been caught rereading the same note countless times for the past four months, and no matter how much i prayed, she didn’t come back to me. 

“i know that you never admitted to her that you loved her, but she admitted it to you through that, right?” my blonde friend asked me, motioning to the note in my hands. i only nodded. even though it was only news that we were no longer together, it still hurt like a fresh wound. 

“jonah,” he sighed, running a hand down the side of his face as if he was thinking of how to word the next thing he was going to say in a way that wouldn’t hurt me. “i have been in love. god, i am in love. that means that i know what love looks like and i know what love feels like,” he informed me, pausing for a few seconds to see if i had anything to say, which i didn’t. “and i say that between you two. i saw a lot of it.” 

“i know, man. i love her,” i mumbled, reading over the note again. 

“you love her? as in you’re in love with her as we speak?” corbyn asked, his eyes lighting up. he had always been a fan of y/n and i together so it was no surprise that he was excited. 

“yeah,” i chuckled for what felt like the first real laugh in a while. 

“go tell her! go right now and tell her!” corbyn exclaimed, jumping off my bed quickly. 

“but what if she has already moved on,” i reminded myself.

“she hasn’t.”

“but how do you…?”

“she hasn’t,” corbyn assured me before sprinting out of my room. “food is cancelled!” corbyn screamed. in response i heard groans but i went downstairs anyways. 

“good luck, buddy,” jack assured me, patting my back as i slipped on my shoes. i didn’t say another word to any of them, i just ran out the door, the note still in my hands. and of course, it was raining. i shoved the note into my sweatshirt pocket to protect it from the rain and i jumped into my car, pulling out of the driveway. i drove quickly the whole way there, but i was incredibly worried. what if she had moved on? what if she didn’t want to see me? 

finally, fifteen minutes later i pulled up into the parking lot of the small, broken down apartment complex. i knew that kicking her out was an awful idea, but she is smart. she found a way to save herself, even if it meant spending everything she had on a gross, old, small apartment. 

daniel and y/n were best friends, so he had come to visit her since the split, and while i was on my way here, he texted me the room number, which i already had memorized. 

i ran through the lobby and straight to the elevators, pressing the button for the sixth floor. i bounced on my heels nervously as the elevator ticked with each floor we passed. finally, the number six appeared in red lights above the door, and the metal doors slowly slid open. i squeezed through the opening and beelined straight for her room. 649. 

once i reached the once white but now brown door, i took a deep breath before knocking lightly on the wood. 

“coming,” i heard her angelic voice from the other side. just her voice called me, still. even though i hadn’t heard it for a while, it was like music to my ears. 

an eternity later, and she finally pulled open the door. there she stood, looking just as much of a mess as i did, and the best part; she was wearing my sweatshirt.

“jo-” she started, her voice cracking in a way that could barely be heard. i cracked a smile at just her persona. the way that her hair was roughly thrown up and her had a completely bare face. i love everything about it. i love her. 

“i missed you, baby girl,” i smiled, her face breaking into one as well. she didn’t even reply, she just flung herself at me and wrapped her arms around my neck tightly. i heard a few sniffles coming from her and pulled away, holding her at arms length by her shoulders. 

“happy tears?” i questioned to which she nodded before shoving her face back into my chest. we stayed like that for a while before i whispered the magic words into her hair. 

“i love you so much.”

“oh, thank god!” she giggled, making a wide smile break out onto my face.

Ah, this is so embarrassing to admit but I started crying whilst reading your last scenario with bakugou & Izuku. I can't say I'm the same boat, (quite the opposite actually, being a latina but looking the exact opposite.) but just??? I don't even know why, despite the fact I couldn't personally relate it just invoked a feeling of my that was indescribable?? Despite the fact that I may not have tanned skin, or afro/curled hair I do happen to be a very self conscious person and reading that (pt 1

Made me so so happy? It was weird to feel my wet cheeks after reading it, but like, in a good way. Just imagining myself in a scenario in which I tell them about my insecurities and them being very kind and raw with their words at the same time just sent me over the moon.  I don’t think I can recall another instance in which a writing actually made me sob. And just oh my lordie you’re so good???? and just thank you so so so much for writing that. pt 2

That being said, would it be okay if I requested scenarios with Bakugou, Todoroki, and Izuku (I’m sorry, I don’t know your person limit, if it’s 2 then just bakugou and Todoroki) with an s/o that feels invalid because they don’t fit into the stereotype of their ethnicity. A while ago I was told by someone who was dear to me, that because I couldn’t speak spanish  nor did I look like a latina I couldn’t call myself one and I’ve been extremely self conscious of that since. hah sorry for the length             

Hello lovely and I very much apologize that it took me this long to get your request back to you. First of all, thank you so, so very much for letting me know about all of this, thank you, truly. I can barely put into words how touched I am and how much I wish to wrap you into soft and good things. I very, very much hope that I could write your request well enough and that it is at least somewhat what you hoped for. I wish you all the best lovely, all the love and good fortune shall come your way and, if I may say that: Sometimes the people closest to us say the things that hurt us the most. It doesn’t mean they are right, not at all. You are you and nothing about you is wrong and what you love, what you identify as, what lives in your heart, that is truly you and nothing can change that, no one can take that away. It is true and it is and it’s you.


Bakugou:

When his partner tells him why they have been more self-conscious and worried lately, he sits down with them to talk about it.

“I don’t give a single fuck what other people think.” He says seriously and gently takes their hands in his, giving them ample time and keeping the grip loose enough that they can pull away if they don’t want any touch right now. “You are you and I love you. No one but you decides who you are or how you feel. Other people don’t live in your body, they don’t know your fucking mind, they don’t get to decide jack shit.”

He shuffles a bit closer, lightly bumping their knees together. “I love you.” He says, frowning and sincere. “If other people can’t accept you the way you are, that is their fucking problem.”

Reaching up with one hand, he gently rubs a calloused thumb along their cheek. “No one, no fucking one, gets to decide anything about you. Only you decide anything. Be who you are, I have your back.” He presses a soft, warm kiss against their forehead. “I’m fucking proud of you and happy to be with you, nothing changes that.


Todoroki:

He frowns a little when his partner tells him what happened and how they’re feeling. Once they finish, he gently takes their hand in his, rubbing a soothing thumb over the back of their hand.

“I think that this person is wrong.” He says, voice quiet and sure. Todoroki holds their gaze, serious and honest. “You are you and no one has the right to tell you differently. No one has the right to decide how you feel or what you identify with or what makes you feel at home.”

He reaches up with his free hand to gently brush along a strand of their hair and he rests his hand against their cheek. “Only you know how you feel and how you think. You are the one who can decide anything when it comes to yourself.”

He brushes a kiss against their forehead. “I love you and I am proud of you. You are wonderful and I hope you know that.” Todoroki gives their hand a soft, reassuring squeeze. “You can always count on me, I will support you in this and everything else. You are who you are and I love you for it.”


Midoriya:

He feels a small frown pulling at his brows and gently takes his partner’s hand. Midoriya moves a bit closer when their fingers curl around his and he softly presses their legs together.

“I love you.” He says and gives their hand a small squeeze. His gaze is sincere and open, warm and direct. “All of you and who you are. You decide who you are and where you belong. No one has the right to take that away from you, nor can they truly take what you wish to keep.”

He brushes their shoulders together and he wraps his free arm around them when his love sways into the touch. For a moment, he just holds them, thinking over what to say and giving them support, before he lifts the hand in his to kiss their knuckles.

“Don’t let anyone decide any of these things for you.” He says quietly, gently and firmly. “Only you know how you feel and what it is that makes you happy, what you know deep in your heart to be true, what is part of yourself. And that is you, all of it and no one can take that away. I love you for every single part that you are and I will always have your back.” He rests his forehead against theirs. “You decide, not anyone else and I believe in you.”

“Are you really going to wear that? My sister asked as she laid belly flat on my bed, legs crossed up in the air.

I got irritated, not liking her comments towards my lack of style. “I don’t know? I don't’ know anything about this bullshit!”

She sat up on the bed. “Woah, woah. Calm down.” Her hands reached out in a calming manner. “We’ll figure something out.”

I threw my head back in frustration. “Ugh. I don’t know what I’m doing. I’m so nervous I feel sick. I’m not some pretty girl who can look cute for a date without looking like I’m ready for thanksgiving dinner. If you want a girl who can put on a T-shirt and jeans at a world record speed.” I pointed to myself. “I’m that girl. I’m so not good at this.”

anonymous asked:

i've found myself obsessed with the thought of being inpatient, and it's becoming a real problem. it's all i think about. i am just so desperate to be sick enough to be inpatient that i trigger breakdowns frequently and practise parasuicidal gestures often. i'm not sure if it's a validation thing (as in i wont accept there was a problem to begin with until i'm in hospital) but i don't know what to do. i've been in therapy for two years, changed counsellors twice and see a psychiatrist, too.

inpatient obsessed pt. 2 - i think i might have borderline personality disorder, and i don’t know if this whole thing is anything to do with that. i present every single symptom i’ve read but i’m deemed “too young” (17) for a diagnosis, so they’ve just settled for GAD for now. i just don’t know what to do, and i don’t know if i can accept i’m ill in the first place until i’m hospitalised. i don’t know how much of my sickness is induced or if all of this is a symptom of something like histrionic.

Hi Anon,

It could be a subconscious need for validation, it could be symptomatic for something else entirely. It is not my place to diagnose that, so let me first of all urge you to discuss this with your therapist.

About the need to validate: that is of course a possibility. Many people subconsciously associate severe illness with hospitalization and so somewhere along the line the idea grows that as long as you are not in hospital you are not ill enough. That is the case with somatic illnesses but also very much, and maybe even more, with mental illness. 

And to be honest I can quite understand your frustration. You are 17, so you still have to wait for a little bit before they can diagnose you correctly, and so in the meantime they give you some other diagnosis. Which I am sure will not have been pulled out of thin air, but still only approaches the true thing apparently.

What’s more, having to deal with these diagnoses and then to be sent home feels weird. I remember how that went with me. I got diagnosed with dyshymia and borderline, and then the hour was up and they sent me home. And I remember how absolutely weird I felt, going home while at the same time having these diagnoses and indeed wondering to myself, how ill am I if they send me home?

And that is what I mean with that subconscious association being made between illness and hospitalization, and I got out of that mode of thinking when indeed I accepted I was ill in the first place, and that I was ill enough, and that I didn’t need a place like a hospital to validate that feeling. And it took a while for that acceptance to grow, but it came.

What really helped me was to explain my feelings to my therapist at the time. She was able to show me that it’s not about how ill you are, or whether you are in hospital or not. You have certain symptoms, these make you ill, and so they have to be taken seriously both by yourself and others.

Underneath are links on how to talk about yourself with your therapist, as well as links on borderline and how to cope with that. I hope they’ll help.

Part 1 (X)

||Masterlist||

As soon as the last bell rang Luke grabbed his backpack and left the classroom with his friends. I left with Maddie, she wanted me to tell her about my sudden ‘thing’ with Luke. She drove us to her house, it wasn’t too far away. On our way to her house Luke’s black Lamborghini passed next to us. Once we were in her house she parked her car in the garage and opened the front door. Her house was really big, it looked like she was a rich girl too.

“So, what happened between you and Luke?” She asked as I sat on the couch.

“I don’t even know, it all happened so fast. I was just fixing my hair when suddenly he entered the restroom and then” I took a deep breath “we had sex.”

“Oh girl you don’t waste your time in school huh.” She laughed.

“What Sam said about Luke is true?” I asked.

“What did she say?”

“That he was trouble.” I responded.

“Luke is not a bad boy, he’s had a rough life. I mean his parents are never home, they are always abroad attending meetings. He just needs attention and someone who is willing to love him for who he is, not for his legacy.”

“I think I’m falling for him.” I muttered really low, she didn’t hear anything though.

“Sorry what?” She said confused.

“Nothing. I gotta go, my mom hates when I come home late.”

“Okay, take care. See you tomorrow at school.” She smiled.

“See you tomorrow.” I said shutting her door and going home.

I looked to the house in front of Maddie’s and it was really big too, both houses were like mansions, actually all the houses in this neighborhood were mansions. I walked to the front sidewalk, I gave a quick look to that mansion and something caught my attention. On the door there was an emblem that said Hemmings family, this had to be the house of Luke Hemmings. So Luke and Maddie are neighbors and she never told me that.

I was staring at the emblem when suddenly the door was opened and I faced Luke, I couldn’t be more embarrassed now. He would think that I was stalking him or that I followed him to his house.

“Came here for more?” He smirked.

“What? I didn’t know you lived here. I was at Maddie’s and… How did you know I was in the door?” I asked him.

“The cameras.” He said pointing at a camera above us.

“Wanna come in?” He said.

“Okay.” I said not being sure of my answer.

I was astonished when I entered his house, it was really big and beautiful. The wooden floor was spotless and looked like no one had ever walked onto it. The walls were covered with expensive artworks and there were statues everywhere.

“Are you gonna stare at my house or are you gonna follow me?” He asked interrupting my trance.

“Where are your parents?” I asked curiously.

“In Germany, they had an important meeting and they are coming back in a month or so maybe.” He said.

We walked through hallway that lead us to a dark room with comfortable seats and a big screen, it was a cinema. He had a freaking cinema in his house it was unbelievable.

“What movie would you like to see?” He asked me.

‘I don’t care, we’re not gonna see the movie anyways.’ I though to myself.

“That one is okay.” I said randomly without knowing what movie was.

The movie started playing I can’t remember the name of the movie but it was amazing, one of my favorites. Luke was sitting next to me and suddenly his hand went from his lap to mine. He made lazy circles in my knee and then going up to my thighs, he was toying with me.

“What are you doing?” I asked. He shushed me.

He pushed my panties aside and rubbed my clit before slipping two fingers inside me. I gasped and he smirked.

“Luke.” I moaned.

“You’re so wet honey.”

He started curling his fingers and thrusting quickly. My eyes fluttered shut and a soft loud moan left my lips. He added another finger and the pleasure was at its highest point.

“Fuck, Luke I’m about to” i was saying but he stopped pulled out his fingers.

“Luke what the fuck.” I shouted and he chuckled.

He slipped his three fingers again and pumped them really fast, my mouth was slightly opened. I was already so turned on, I could hear his fingers going in and out. He suddenly slowed his pace.

“L-Luke faster.” I whimpered.

All of sudden I felt another finger slip in and bit my lips. Loud moans escaping from them, I was about to come. My orgasm was building, my back arched and I came all over his hand. My warm liquids running down my legs.

“Fuck, you’re gonna pay for that.” I said bringing my hands to his pants but he stopped them int the way.

“Oh no, don’t worry about me. It was all about you honey.” He whispered in my ear. “You can go take a shower if you want to.”

'Umm shower sex, that’d be cool.’ But I was really late, my mom is a pain in the ass sometimes.

He took me to the bathroom in his room and told me to grab his clothes if I wanted or needed to. I grabbed a few towels, a drop dead shirt and some shorts. When I finished showering I wore his clothes and left his house without him noticing.

My mom was worried about me, I told her a stayed at Maddie’s house for a moment to do homework together. She served me dinner and then I went to bed, I was always bored at my house. I had no siblings and my parents were always working. I turned on my TV and slept with his clothes until next morning, his fragrance was now all over his bed, it was amazing.

My first classes were really boring, basically math and literature. I haven’t seen Luke yet, I wish we had more classes together.

“What are you thinking about Y/N? It’s lunch time, the girls are waiting.” Kelsey said, I realized everyone in the class had left already.

“Umm I’ll go in a minute, I need to go to the restrooms.” I lied.

“Okay.” She said.

I went to the back patio, there is a garden with trees in that area. I just stood under a tree when I heard a deep and familiar voice singing. I followed the voice and it took me to another tree just a few steps away.

I’m out of touch, I’m out of love
I’ll pick you up when you’re getting down
And out of all these things I’ve done
I think I love you better now
I’m out of sight, I’m out of mind
I’ll do it all for you in time

I really loved how he sang, Maddie never told me he had such a good talent.

“You can sing.” I interrupted him.

“What are you doing here?” He said surprised.

“Just wanted some space. What are you doing here?”

“That’s not your business.” He said harshly and he suddenly noticed I didn’t like his tone.

“I heard you’re going to Calum’s party.” He cleared his throat.

“Yeah I got invited. You know Maddie is Calum’s girlfriend and I’m her best friend so that puts automatically me in the list.” I said.

He rolled his eyes.

“I’ll pick you up tomorrow 7.” He offered.

“No thanks, Maddie is picking me up already.” I said and he stood up.

“Maddie” he grunted “that girl is so annoying. It’s good not to be her best friend anymore. Anyways I’ll see you at the party tomorrow.” I was gonna say something else but he was already gone.

So he and Maddie were best friend, why wouldn’t she tell me. I needed answers right now.

anonymous asked:

I don't know how credible this is, but apparently Alex Hirsch answered a fan question around the time of "Sock Opera" confirming that Bill actually owes Dipper since he didn't fulfill his end of the deal, but that he's "still not to be trusted." If this is true, what implications do you think this might have for the finale, since this still hasn't payed off plot-wise?

I can’t recall Alex having that answer at the time of Sock Opera, but he DID have a comment later on about that deal: [X]

It was spoiler territory to ask about Bill’s deal with Dipper, and how he doesn’t have any code of honor with his deals. So, maybe he doesn’t owe Dipper a favor, and that’s why he’s been ready to destroy the kid after entering their dimension. However, if he does owe a favor somehow, maybe it already happened and it’s slipping my mind (though one thing at least comes to mind), OR it’s something that’s yet to happen in the final episode. We’ll have to see!

A part of Bill’s deal was to help Dipper find the some clues from the laptop, and that sorta technically happened in SotBE. However, that episode aired BEFORE this panel, and this deal’s purpose/details had been kept behind the curtains. At least, that’s what we can assume.

The one idea I have in my mind is something I’ve kinda believed myself for a while since Ford came into the show….

All throughout the series, the Author of the Journals has been set up to be this “super knowledgable” and mysterious character. Even after his stay for the last half of the final season, he’s remained mostly mysterious with a big “I know what’s best and don’t question it!” type of ego. So, he’s still presented as some important guy with tons of knowledge… Yet, actual evidence in the show also proves otherwise, with how dangerous and even wrong or inconclusive the journals have been… They’re written by a flawed human, afterall. Not some godly idol. A human trying to play this godly hero role, but falling flat because of his very human limits.

I actually explained before what this has to do with Bill’s deal, but I’ll sum it up again here and with updated stuff since Weirdmageddon Pt. 2 had aired!

Anyway, while Bill probably got the Blind Eye Society to shutdown (for whatever reason) by letting Dipper find a clue through the crushed-by-Bipper laptop, he still mentioned some other things before they shook hands on this deal.

“A puppet seems like a small price to pay for all the secrets of the universe!

[Meanwhile, the image shown in Bill is also shown in Gideon Rises within a 6-fingered hand… Whether this has a connection or not, I feel it does have a reason for using the same galaxy background as the one shown in the frame of Ford’s hand.]

Bill likes to make deals that he can be confident in getting what he wants out of them. Tricking Ford into building the portal to “give him answers to Gravity Falls” but it actually was meant to be a bridge between the Nightmare Realm and reality. Giving up on the deal with Gideon after it was cut off, ‘cause he had hopes that Gideon would help him with “something [he’s] been working on.” He wasn’t getting what he wanted with Gideon, so he let the deal be cut off and went on his rampage in Stan’s mindscape at that point.

So, with Dipper’s deal…

He took advantage of his wording as he viewed Dipper as the puppet he wanted, destroyed the laptop (revealing the McGucket Labs label), and tried to destroy the Journal within Dipper’s possession because that’s what had warnings about the portal that would prompt Dipper to shut it down (and he nearly did). Meanwhile, he decided to have a little “fun” with his deal to make things go his way even more. Using Ford, and using Dipper’s idolization of Ford, tipped more of these dominoes over.

And again, the author truly isn’t some “super intellectual being with all these secrets of the universe.” He’s flawed, his knowledge and understanding of the world is flawed, just as any human and their knowledge/understanding would be. Bill just decided to take advantage of the “rose-colored glasses” of sorts that have lead Dipper (and even fans) to believe the author DOES know everything there is to know. That he’s some perfect mentor and all that. But it’s not the case in the reality of it. And hey…

Fits with the running theme of Fantasy VS. Reality, huh? Bill using peoples’ fantasies, delusions, and dreams against them is a consistent occurence in this show’s story. It’s been happening since the demon’s debut. That’s how he also gets away with “lying until it’s not a lie anymore.” The lies are like fantasies, and when pushed enough can seem as true as delusions that people fall for.

So, in a sense, I think Bill already offered this “favor” from his deal with Dipper, but of course only to get what he wants. To him, there’s no point in making deals or committing to deals if he can’t get anything out of it himself. He goes in with the hyper-confidence for it, and often succeeds!

As to why it’s kinda treated like a spoiler, maybe it’s not what I theorize and will mean something else in the show. Otherwise, it IS what I theorize and it’s just “spoilery” ‘cause it hasn’t been officially discussed in more depth from the show canon or its creators.

So, that’s what I think on this topic. Thank you for the interesting ask, anon! :D It allowed for me to discuss this a little more and with updated information as new stuff has happened since my last post taking on something similar.
