i like this one please reblog it i worked hard

anonymous asked:

What is it that you love about Hobi? About his personality?

omg what a question ;___; [please no one reblog this… i got super sappy] i know you said personality but i got carried away.

what attracted me to hobi at first (during ahl of all things lmao) was him being loud and silly, i guess? like it’s hard not to notice him. lmao but also how hard working and dedicated he was during all the challenges. not only that, but how helpful he was (esp to jin ;;) and patient and he just came across really kind and caring. it’s clear he has a big heart. and he continues to coach the members and help them in dance. even the choreographer mentioned how much hobi helps.

and then watching bangtan bombs, and especially his birthday video, i could tell he’s really sensitive (so am i lol). idk i just find that really sweet. i like that he doesn’t mind getting emotional, even if people joke that he’s a cry baby. people joke about me being a cry baby so i can relate with him. lol i appreciate his softness and sensitivity. ;;

and i admire how he always tries to make everyone laugh. always cheers everyone up. even if he, himself, isn’t the happiest or maybe he’s tired, but he still puts others’ happiness before his own. it kinda breaks my heart in a way but i have to respect the person that he is, that he cares so much about everyone’s happiness and well-being. 

but when he dances, and of course he’s an incredible dancer, everything about him switches drastically. when he’s dancing and in his element, he becomes a different person. and it’s interesting to see that switch, of cute and silly hobi to aggressive and sexy dancer (but he can also be cute dancing if the choreo calls for it and i love that). not only that, but the different styles of dance he’s capable of. i am not informed or have knowledge of dancing at all, but during ahl he showcased the different styles and his capabilities and i just ksdjf makes my vagina and heart flutter. i wish i knew more about dancing to explain this better. lmao he is so damn intense when he dances and everything from his precision, to his body, to his facial expressions really get to me. i can’t take my eyes off of him during their performances.

also hearing him open up about how he struggled to rap at first, trying to keep up with namjoon and yoongi and how hard he’s worked and just how much he’s improved?? and he really is amazing. i admire him and how hard he has worked so much. like not even to be biased but his parts in the songs are always my favorite just because he can do so much with his voice and he makes it so fun (like i’ll never get over his GWANGJU BABY or UNNIES CALL ME BEEP BEEP) how DEEP he can make his voice and then how high he can go. he can sing and rap and dance and he probably has a million more talents we don’t even know about because he’s amazing. :’((((((

not to mention he’s like really?? really?? beautiful? omg. ;;; he’s cute and handsome and sexy and he is ruining my life in the best way possible and man, i really love jung hoseok. ;; i also really love his bitch face. i love how he plays with the maknae line. i love how giggly and silly he makes yoongi. i love how humble he is, never wanting the spotlight and always passing it to the other members. i love when he wears hats and his ears do the bendy thingy. so cute TT. and i love his CONFIDENCE, which is super sexy. i love hope on the street. i love his laugh… his laugh and then his LAUGH laugh, where he throws his entire body. i love his girl group dances and his cute tush. i love his aegyo, no matter how much it annoys the members (though i think they like it :P). i love when he dances and his thighs just bulge in his pants like what the hell even is that, i’m upset. i love his beat boxing. and his ACTING (where’s his oscar??). i love the frickin holes in his jeans to show off his beautiful knees. i love how scared he is of everything… poor baby. i love his ‘touch my body’ dance with jimin. i love his soft tum tum. i love when he’s rapping and the vein in his neck goes all the way up the side of his damn face and it’s the sexiest thing ever omg. i love when he gets serious and his voice gets all deep and raspy when he talks. OH MY GOD I LOVE WHEN HE EATS AND HIS DIMPLES SHOW AND HE LOOKS SO SO CUTE. and i love his dimples, too. i love how he has that one specific angle he takes all his selfies in (ya’ll know the one). i love how flustered and giggly he gets when yoongi yells J-HOOOOOPE. i love how amazing rings look on his fingers (is that weird? i love his hands omg). i love when he pushes his hair back. i love when he wears hats. i love his american selfies. i love all of his selfies, from cute to panty dropping. i love his FOREHEAD D’: and his sexy lip freckle. and his lips. and smile. wow he’s gorgeous. i love his positivity, his HOPEFULNESS and he gives me a lot of hope and happiness and i just really :’) really :’))) love him :’))))

Hey everyone!

Just a quick heads up! If anyone links me to nudes of any kind, you’re blocked. I have no interest in seeing anyone’s nudes that were not sent to me directly by the person themselves and I’ve received a couple of messages about it already. I’m aware that they’re out there.

So please! For the sake of my sanity and yours, don’t send me things I don’t want.

Also, please don’t reblog stuff like that. The invasion of privacy is overwhelming. I said it before and I’ll say it now: respect these people for all the hard work they put in and don’t save or redistribute illicit material meant for only one person, the intended audience.

Thank you for your time, everyone.

My cobblestone path! I like to use the vine cobblestone to edge the regular one; it blends more naturally than the straight cut off :3 

Also the vines cobblestone path is the same stone pattern as the regular one, so it blends seamlessly! The vines on this also blend really nicely with the vines on the purple brick path, so you can go from one path to another. 

feel free to use, reblog, tell me if you use it, send me pics whatever you like, I’d love to hear about it if you enjoy these paths! (please do not repost these codes though! I worked hard on them <3 )

Hey everyone. So, I accidentally deleted my account. I’m completely and utterly devastated but I’m trying to get it together and get back on the horse. Same url, all my content is gone. Here’s the fic I’ve decided I want to be the first one on this “new” blog. 

I hate to beg, but please reblog to help me re-establish my blog? I’m a little desperate; I’ve lost so much of my hard work.

Enjoy <3

~ Prompt: “Not an option” ~ Pairing: Stevetony ~ Warnings: None ~


Tony twisted his hands in his lap, clearly avoiding looking at Steve. The fact that he’d moment’s before blurted out the kind of love confession that put every romantic hero in existence to shame - simply because it was so raw and honest and because it was Tony - and he was now looking away like he couldn’t bear to look Steve in the face, shattered Steve’s heart a little bit. He wanted to rush across the room and cup his face in his hands, kiss those worry lines away from where they were etched between his brows.

But, if he knew anything about Tony Stark, then he knew that doing that at this exact moment would only scare him away. So he stood where he was, hardly daring to breathe as he waited for whatever Tony was about do next.

Tony cleared his throat, dragged a shaky hand through his hair. “Steve, look. I know I’m difficult. I know I’m hard to deal with and I’m messy and sometimes I say the wrong thing - well, I say the wrong thing a lot of the time, I know - and I’m not asking for anything more than you want to give me but.”

He took a deep breath before continuing. “But. I want you. And I want to try to be the kind of person you’d want back.”

“You think I don’t want you?” Steve’s voice wavered a bit. How could Tony think that, when he was everything he’d ever wanted and more, and now here he was, telling him he loved Steve, and he thought Steve didn’t love him back.

Tony winced. “I know this is a lot to shove down your throat, and I’m sorry, really. We can pretend I never said anything, I just, I had to say it out loud once. But we can forget it, we can-”

It took that long for Steve to make a decision; the risk of Tony talking himself into closing himself off from Steve was increasing rapidly, and Steve couldn’t handle it. Worries of spooking him flew out the window, and was replaced by the nagging thought rattling inside his skull: I can’t lose him.

He crossed the room in three long strides. Tony looked up when Steve was right in front him, his pained expression meeting Steve’s when he dropped to his knees in front of Tony’s chair. From this vantage point, he had to look up at Tony, tilting his face up to meet his gaze.

Steve heard Tony’s breath catch in his throat when he raised both hands to press against his cheeks, thumbs carefully caressing the ridge of his cheekbones. There was the faint scratch of Tony’s facial hair under his fingers, the faint warmth of his skin. He wanted to drown in Tony’s warmth.

He leaned in then, slowly, giving Tony plenty of time to back away, to tell him to stop. He didn’t, he just stared at Steve with wide eyes and lips parted slightly, his face awash with shock.

Steve captured his lips with the softest kiss, pressed his mouth against Tony’s so gently that it was just barely more than a whisper against his lips, a question. Tony made a surprised noise and froze; Steve was just about to pull away when Tony managed to get his bearings and brought his hands up to Steve’s shoulders, then twisted them in his hair. Only when Tony began to actively reciprocate did he deepen the kiss, pulling him close and tasting him like he’d wanted to for so long.

When they drew apart Tony rested his forehead against Steve’s, emitting a soft, disbelieving laugh. Steve smiled up at him, feeling like he was radiating sunlight, like it was rushing through his veins and setting him aglow because Tony was looking at him like…

Well. Like he loved him.

“No pretending then?” Tony asked; hopeful, but still the faintest bit hesitant.

Steve kissed him again briefly and shook his head. “Not an option.”

Tony smiled then and he thought his heart stopped for a moment. When Tony smiled like that, he was always reminded of how he wanted to make him look like that every day for the rest of forever.

When Tony slid off of his chair to join him on the floor, Steve caught him in his arms and held him tight. He buried his face into the crook of Steve’s neck, pressing the sweetest kiss there as he breathed out a sigh of relief.

Steve buried his face in Tony’s hair, inhaled, and told himself that he’d spend the rest of his life proving to Tony that he had always been the only option.

It’s that time again!

My dash has gotten a little slow, which is why i haven’t been posting much. (Also i’ve been working a lot and i just moved out! yay!)

So i would really appreciate it if you would like or reblog if you post any of the following (It can just be one thing, that is fine too!):

  • Cow Chop
  • Achievement Hunter
  • Rooster Teeth
  • Twenty One Pilots
  • The Walking Dead
  • Pokemon
  • Video Games *Any kind, but i especially love horror*
  • Hamilton
  • Animals
  • anything really, i’m not that hard to please! lol

It would help if you had some sort of tagging system so i could just block what i don’t want to see, but if you don’t then that’s fine too. 

Addressing Blind/Partially Sighted Actors

Please reblog this in the hopes of reaching out to every blind/partially sighted person.

As a filmmaker, I write this in the hopes of learning more about blind people and where they stand on issues like this. 

I’ve only worked with one blind actor. He was amazing, and learned a lot from him. He mentioned that there is a similar issue of having sighted people play blind roles all the time. I have been focused on the deaf and hard of hearing community and making sure that they have acting opportunities because I have met so many deaf actors who are talented and are capable of anything. But it makes me wonder… what about blind people? What’s their situation?

When the time comes and I want to cast a blind person for a role, where do I look? And what do they feel about people who are partially sighted to play fully blind roles? Where do they stand? The most difficult to admit “what if” I have is that I am wondering– where can I find blind actors to fit roles that I might write before I meet them? What if there’s no one that fits the role that I wrote? 

This is also often an issue with deaf actors, but in my view, there’s usually someone who can fit a deaf role that is a deaf actor. I don’t know if it’s the same for the blind. 

From previous experience, I have learned not to presume that the same problems face different minority groups. This is why I keep the question open, instead of saying, “Oh, it must be the same, since deaf people have the same issues.” 

The truth is, no minority group faces the same issues. So, please, reblog this and share this with everyone you know who might know something. And please comment on this, if you know something. 

K - Lost Small World Chapter 9 [Eng Sub]

And because I can’t be bothered to rewrite this-

Hey there! Since no one was uploading the English translated version for later chapters anywhere, I thought to upload one! (For the poor souls who can’t read Jap/Chinese)

Referenced some of the translation with the novels! You can find them here and here. Scans are by a Chinese group: 深雪darksnow (Whom I have seek permission from to use their scans. They specified that their watermark is to be removed on every single page that’s why some of you were wondering why all their watermarks were gone and replaced with mine.) By the way, there are some parts of the translation that I changed to make it more comprehensible (since its a different language after all).

Please DO NOT re-upload! It was real hard work cleaning/redrawing/translating these so I would appreciate it if you guys can help me like and reblog instead!

Stay tuned for the later chapters :)

-Ryuu.mm-

PS: Gonna take a little rest before starting on the next chapter so don’t expect any quick updates :P

Some were made by me and some I found through my years of roleplaying. If you see one of your gifs and want it taken down, let me know! Please like or reblog if you use this, I worked hard on it.

I am finally done this digital drawing! Thanks again ungraceeful for the suggestion! Probably one of my best portraits I have done in awhile.

I used the program SketchbookPro with a MacBookPro, and drew on a Wacom Cintiq12WX. Just in case anyone is wondering. If you decide to repost, please credit. If you decide to use it for lockscreens, etc, I would appreciate if you reblog (thnks). And please do not steal, I worked hard on this and most likely will be upset if anyone does.

!!!!!!!PLEASE REBLOG FOR NIGHT ONE AT GILLETTE!!!!!!


MY DEAREST TAYLOR


I literally have been waiting six years to see you and I am so excited to finally share this beautiful moment with not only my best friend (saraismile), my Aunt Becky (taylorswift) , but also with the thousands of people who will be at gillettestadium in 18 hours screaming and dancing their butts off!


We worked really hard on these outfits to make sure that we would be lit up like  Christmas tree’s in the left pit, so you would be able to see our smiling/crying faces cheering you on! After countless hours of labor, lots of money spent on materials and food, countless hours of sleep lost… WE FINALLY HAVE SOMETHING WE ARE PROUD TO WEAR FOR YOU!

I have faced too many challenges this year with my health to prevent me from shaking my butt off and having the best night of my entire life (including my wedding – which hasn’t happened yet). I am so proud to be a swiftie and support you, taylorswift, in any and all ways possible!!! You have my endless love and respect for all that you are and who you will continue to grow into.

I love you so much, Taylor. Thank you for always being there for me when the world would give me a million reasons to not carry on. You’re the reason that I am alive today and you will always be with my through my struggles (even if you’re not aware of it). AUNT BECKY YOU ARE AMAZING!!!!

XOXO


Love, Hannah and Sarai

Hellatus fic recs (Part 2)

Yay, time for part 2!

Part one was my lovely attempt at self-promotion - a list of fics of mine that might tide you over as we wait for filming to start again: you can find it here!

Below are recs of fics I have read and enjoyed over the past few years. All are complete or are being updated regularly (I’ve indicated ones in progress with ‘WIP’). All are Captain Swan except for one Outlaw Queen fic which I have also indicated!

Enjoy! (And if you do like what you read please drop the writers some love via a review a reblog or a tumblr message - writing is very hard and this list represents thousands of hours of people’s work!).

Stains of Ink

Emma Swan is a tattoo artist who believes her life is perfect the way it is and there’s no need for anything more. Killian Jones is a florist whose been dealt several blows in life but is slowly salvaging his life from the wreckage. All it takes is meeting each other to find that, sometimes, it takes another person to complete a happy ending. A modern Captain Swan AU.

Prairie Lullaby

Western historical AU. In a bid to secure a more settled life for herself and her son, Emma Swan travels to Kansas as the mail-order bride of Liam Jones. Her dreams of a peaceful life are shattered when she finds herself married to his brother Killian, a man who appears to offer her anything but the quiet life she’d dreamed of. Where will this not-so-happy-ending take them? (WIP)

World Unknown

Emma signs up to be a test subject for a “guaranteed true love match”. The kicker is that she can’t see her match until their wedding day. The moment she sees him for the first time, she knows she’s doomed.

6

Emma Swan is not one to break the rules, but when she meets Killian Jones, all her beliefs about what she is capable of change. Over the course of six conferences in six different cities, they give into their attraction, pretending that it’s just physical when the truth is very different. Where will this infatuation lead and who will end up hurt in the end? Modern AU.

Master and Servant (Outlaw Queen)

They met in a club that was designed to fulfill the darkest desires, assuming that they would never meet outside the walls of this establishment. But when Robin met Roland’s English teacher for the first time he was in for a surprise.

Walking in a Straight Line

It’s one of the oldest stories in the book. Two old friends have a few too many drinks, two old friends share a kiss. Happens all the time, right? But what happens when only one of them actually remembers it? (Captain Swan AU, with a side order of Snowing, mention of Emma/Walsh)

A Somewhat Terrible Idea

When Emma Swan gets an invitation to her ex’s wedding, she isn’t expecting to find it still hurts. Determined not to “lose the break-up”, Emma recruits the snarky Irishman she chases down bail jumpers with, to assist her in her somewhat ill-conceived plan to save face. Absolutely nothing could go wrong, right? Captain Swan AU. M for swears.

A One Time Thing (And Other Untruths)

“She supposes the reason she tells him is the same reason she kept his phone number after all those weeks.” Pregnancy has a way of throwing a wrench in one’s plans.

As Real As You Want It To Be

Teaching at the same school as Killian Jones was both infuriating and distracting, but when he throws Emma under the bus for the final time, she devises a plan to get back at him. After all, nobody likes to go to a wedding alone. Time for some CS AU fake dating :) Rated M for possible smut & sassy language.

Brother of a Preacher

Emma moves to Storybrooke, Ohio with her son Henry to try to start a new life after her previous one fell apart. She wasn’t ready for life in a small town. The lovely residents. The welcoming preacher and his family. And most importantly, the sinful brother of the preacher (WIP)

Heart by Heart

Emma Nolan, rich, famous, heiress to Nolan Tech, frustrated by her life, unable to get anyone to take her seriously as a businesswoman, flees her New York life for Hawaii. A chance meeting with grad student-turned-mechanic Killian Jones just might change her life forever. If she lets it

Her Crowning Glory

AU. The laws are clear: to be crowned Queen of Eala, a princess has to be married. Emma has a month to find a husband, or else the crown will be snatched from her and given to the only other heir to the throne, one Killian Jones.

Just Tonight

A night of unexpected passion leads to something infinitely more precious between two friends who don’t realise the hidden depths of affection each has for the other. Romance/Angst and a little bit of Christmas fluffiness…eventually.

I won’t say I’m in love

i won’t say i’m in love: “i recently dumped my ex and i just realized that he still has something really, really important of mine that he took away from me during our relationship - i need to get it back right now immediately and you’re helping me sneak into his house bc you don’t know it yet, but this has everything to do with you” au

aka the one where killian and emma are best friends, who have pined for one another since the beginning of time, and they get uninvited to neal’s lame ass halloween party (that they didn’t wanna go to anyways), but then emma realizes that neal still has her good luck charm and she wants it back for an upcoming exam, so of course she’s going to drag killian along with her.

Knock, Knock

Emma Swan has made the best of her crappy apartment ever since she became best friends with her neighbor, Ruby. But when Ruby moves out and a loud Brit takes her place, the thin walls and lack of space are suddenly not so endearing. After a particularly stressful day, Emma decides to confront the nightmare next door, and entirely against her better judgment, she might just be making a friend. (WIP)

Need You Tonight

Emma Swan is working a job as a bailbonds person at a Boston bar, when she meets a handsome sailor by the name of Killian Jones. The two hit it off from the start and embark on, what they believe to be, a holiday weekend of no strings attached sex.

Poem Without Words

Looking to make some extra money, college senior Emma Swan takes a post as a model for Professor Killian Jones’ art class. Sparks fly on both sides. Will they give into temptation?

Sign of Attraction

Some day she was going to find a way to kill him without leaving a trace. Hopefully it would happen before he drove her insane. Neighbors AU.

Splitting Heirs

Princess Emma is the rightful heir to the throne, but after being kidnapped as a child and raised in another realm, she is hardly fit to run a kingdom. Prince Killian has spent years training for the crown, but his dreams are about to slip from his grasp when Emma returns home. Who will be the next ruler of Misthaven? It may become a matter of splitting heirs.

The Invitation

When Emma Swan was feeling the pressure from her family about her single status, her friend Killian seems like the perfect solution to a Christmas invitation. A CS Fake Dating AU - a gift for my CSSS auguststolemyheart

The Perfect Roommate

Emma was in desperate need of a roommate, but wasn’t finding anyone who suited her. Until her brother David presented her the perfect roommate. A man who had an obsession with tidiness, who was a great cook, and most importantly … he was gay. Roommate AU

The Trouble With Faking It

Killian Jones is one drunken mistake from never setting foot on a movie set again. Enter Emma Swan, the woman his manager has paid to pretend to date him and clean up his image. It seems straightforward enough…but there’s always trouble with faking it. CaptainSwan.

The Reformed Scoundrel

Emma’s dire situation calls for desperate measures, proposing marriage to a duke seems to be the only way to protect her son, and there is just one nobleman who might consider such an outrageous offer - Killian Jones, the Duke of Hillsborough, the most notorious rake the ton has ever seen.

Unlocked Series

3 parts so far: Unlocked, Unbound, Unchained

Polyamorous story about Emma, Killian and Liam. Gripping and with excellent smut!

With Affection

Emma Swan isn’t a middle schooler. So why is she receiving notes from a secret admirer? She’s also definitely not a romantic person. So why is she writing back? Modern!AU, Captain Swan, with side orders of Snowing and Frankenwolf. Updated with additional epilogues.

Stealing Gifs/Edits

There’s a blog out there called @girlvampireswan. They are stealing edits and gifs and reposting them.

A quick look and you can clearly see they’ve not only stolen my gifs but from others as well. I can clearly recognize the work of @henricavyll, @marvelandwhimsy, @outlander-news, and @sassenach4life. There are other people’s work in the outlander fandom there too. It’s not hard to spot stolen work, folks, especially when the gifs in a set are all mismatched in coloring, speed, and sharpness. 

Please don’t reblog from this blog and give it notes and attention. @outlanderamerica recently made a psa reminding people that stealing and reposting is hurtful because the creators spend hours making them. 

if you have reblogged from that blog, please delete it. This person has already blocked someone they stole from after being asked to remove the stolen work. 

BTW, hostile messages like the ones I got last time I called a reposter out will be deleted. I’m not playing.
