So today is Steph’s ( dashingrapskillian ) birthday. What can I say about her? She makes lovely gifs. You’ve seen her gifs, cause they get reblogged hundreds of times (as well they should). I can only imagine the work that goes into them (literally, I don’t make gifs, I don’t know how and even if I did, I wouldn’t be half as good at is as she is)
She was one of my earliest followers, when I joined Tumblr and didn’t have a clue what I was doing (I still don’t) or who any of these people were. All I knew was that I wanted to share my fic, and she has been an amazing cheerleader for my little stories, reblogging them with amazing tags, mentioning them in posts, and undoubtedly helping my readership spread - I don’t think it’s a coincidence that I tend to pick up new followers whenever she reblogs something I wrote.
And she’s my friend now…and I have to get my friend something for her birthday! So here’s a little Captain Swan fic
let slip your secrets, my darling (and I am the one who falls)
Of all the things he’s longed to learn about Emma Swan, the many stories hidden behind her guarded and careful heart, the secrets she hoards as carefully as if they were precious jewels (and they are far more valuable to him than diamonds or pearls, the old pair of spectacles and the ring with the glass stone, every item in that simple box that he would treasure more now than any chest of gold coins because they were hers) he’d be lying if he said that he didn’t want to know even more intimate aspects of the woman who has captivated him since Neverland, since he turned his ship around in search of more than vengeance and misery, hell, if he’s honest (which he is, far more than most people realize) since she leaned forward on her elbows and let slip that first little gem, “I’m going to let you in on a little secret…I’m pretty good at knowing when someone is lying to me.”
But of course he would never admit to his more carnal musings.
Yesterday, my account was terminated. I don’t know why.
I contacted support, multiple times, from different emails. It has now been near 24 hours and I have recieved no response. I have asked some friends to contact support for me, and they got responses within the hour, however they were told that I should just contact support myself, which is of course what I have been doing.
I have put two years of work and love into this blog. All my art, my hundreds and hundreds of gifs, and even the odd shitpost that went viral (even one you posted on your twitter and facebook page may I add) - I have contributed a lot of content to this website. I would at least like to know why I lost my blog. I feel like I have done nothing wrong, and I would just like an explanation.
Okay, um…so here’s the speech. The zombie thing is a bitch. Your world shrivels down to a dot, you know this, and…All you think about is how to get your next meal, and keeping your secret. And…No one can really…know you. Now. Kissing, touching, sex, love, yelling at someone for stealing the blankets. Um, out of the question. Forever. But then one day I see this…Beautiful woman. She’s the only thing in color. Odd ‘cause she’s so pale. And then suddenly there’s hope again. That’s all I’m saying. Who knows if we’ll even like each other. But I like everything I’ve seen so far, and, um…What have we got to lose?
if you are someone in the roleplay community that makes gifs, i salute you. as someone who has been making gifs for a long time ( often making hundreds of underused faces just so i can play them ) i know how hard it is to do it and the fact that you guys do it and put them out there for people to use is rad. i don’t ever get thanked for doing it so here is a big big big THANK YOU to all of you that do make gifs and let others use them! i can’t speak for others, but i sure as hell appreciate you for it!
