So catfish is trying to get people who are fussing online at each other to meet in real life?

Why would you do that

“How did your feud start?”

“Well they were talking about me in the tags and never @ me”

I mean I hope you all have fun. Also what if one side is beefing with the other and the other literally has no idea who they are?

I literally have no idea why anyone would think TGD is queerbaiting– 

the creators literally say Dizzee is bi and is in love with Thor, he’s been shown going to a gay bar, kissed Thor in canon, wrote comic-letters to him when he was away, meets up with him at night to create art and paint each other, and draws hearts in the air to Thor during shows 

Shao is canon in love with Zeke and even if the creators hadn’t officially confirmed it (WHICH THEY DID) you’d have to be straight not to notice, the dude is literally head-over-heels (like he does fancy flips and shit to impress him) in love and literally is never shown attracted to any woman ever and other characters notice.

Mylene chills with drag queens and creates songs with them and we consistently see LGBT folks’ influence in the music scene. And that real influence is acknowledged even among the conservative homophobic characters. 

I dunno what that looks like to y’all but to me that’s some gay shit and I love it

The Adventure Zone (from what I have seen on my dashboard)

I have never listened to this at all (I only recently found out that it was a listen-to thing I literally had no idea) and @the-tao-of-fandom asked me about my impression of it from my dashboard. SO here goes:

Consists of a bunch of characters:

  • Taz: wears a pointy hat, skinny, has a sibling; does improbable things; completely batshit in fanon, not sure about canon; everybody’s favourite.
  • Taz’s sibling: an enigman who looks the same as Taz
  • Big Naked Guy: killed a million bad guys in a supermarket or smthing?
  • dwarf: has a nice beard
  • and some other people probably

is about:

  • some unholy combo of homestuck and a very long DND game?? 
  • the aforementioned group of characters travelling around
  • They’re… adventuring somewhere. In a zone. Only in this one zone? are there other zones? no one knows
  • Despite being peppy and ridiculous in places it is also capable of inducing THE FEELS
  • there was a woman who turned into an umbrella? or something? like a mary poppins animagus idk
  • I sometimes confuse taz fanart with that junky guy from that game with all the characters (yet another thing I see a lot of on my dash and barely understand)
  • could just be my dash, but doesn’t seem to be particularly shippy

Tao thinks it’s good, so I can further extrapolate that:

  • There are possibly bones involved
  • Or maybe succulents

that’s it, that’s all I’ve got. One day I may actually listen to it and find out…

just enj things™

- enjolras has super uncooperative hair when he wakes up (read: highkey hot as fuck)
- he sings under his breath while making coffee and often gets carried away and does this silly dancing thing that once combeferre walked in on with the most smug amused grin and enj just stopped dead in his tracks and then said “i still have that 2008 disco tape ;)) sweaty” yes in verbal convo fight me and ferre went almost pale and he’s got rlly dark skin so u can imagine what happened in 2008
- enjolras once got carpal tunnel from writing too much angry poetry
- enjolras won the literary award at his school every year and he actually went to the same hs as jehan and they weren’t friends yet, so once a desperate and raging jehan convinced montparnasse to climb into enj’s room and take a pic of the certificate bc they wanted to know what it looked like omfg
- they’re so pure they keep saying sorry for that
- enjolras plays the bass
- grantaire plays the lovestruck fool
- bahorel and enjolras deadass have an annulled marriage (viva las vegas)
- enjolras once cried mid-lecture because he was orating as vp of student council and he got SO EMO that he literally shook his head and kept apologising and asked ferre to take over
- ferre was shook
- enjolras hugs better than anyone it’s so warm in those gay arms
- enjolras can do a one-armed cartwheel and he and courf used to make cheerleading choreographies in their spare time in 6th grade
- jehan and courf dated in 6th grade oh my god enjolras kept their Special Love Notebook (™) (no seriously that’s what they called it) (it was a notebook they passed to each other during class & enj wasn’t allowed to look and he never did bc my baby’s honest n loyal) it’s still in his desk
- enjolras got arrested for stealing a frozen pizza once (maybe not SO honest)

- enjolras once left late after school was dismissed and he started chatting w the janitor, phil, and managed to convince him to go after his dream and now Phil opened his first photography gallery if u don’t think enj has always been an angel ur wrong
- enj broke his ribs in a fist fight, he wasn’t very good at that kinda stuff so after he healed he legit took 4 different self defense classes because “i cannot cope with not being good at this” and ferre literally had a fit bc “enj whaT The Fucj you work a job and u have class every day are u srsly pulling this 9 hrs a week punching shit crap”
- “yes.”

final* notes

OK, first of all: thanks to everybody who stuck with this experiment.

Thanks to everybody who liked or reblogged or messaged me or sent something to my askbox; thanks to everybody followed me; thanks to everyone who passed the story along to their friends and followers; thanks to everybody who read it at all, because I realize you were taking a lot on faith, this was a super weird thing.

I’d meant to do something like this for a long time, but I was always sort of worried about it because (as you’ve maybe figured out!) I struggle with plot and long scenes and structuring longer pieces. What I feel more confident about is my ability to write short things that maybe link up…so I leaned in and just did that, ha. I also wanted the individual chapters to stand on their own, and I think for the most part they do. ( @need-not is doing a similar thing and she’s great, so pop over there next!)

A lot of folks have asked if this is going to be on AO3: the answer is probably? I would like to put it there, because I know this format isn’t that easy to read, but I’m also not totally sure how it would work. If you have any ideas for how to make it work, please let me know! In the short term, it IS possible to read the chapters in order. The link is https://all-these-ghosts.tumblr.com/tagged/then-the-bomb/chrono and I believe the in-order part only works in a browser (like literally copy and paste the url into a browser window), not the app, because tumblr is weird like that.

* ok you guys obviously there is a second part, I am mean but I am not THAT mean. bear with me: this story followed pretty closely what happens in that song I kept linking to, so this story is done :) the second part is also in a more uh normal format.

anonymous asked:

I really want to get back into the habit of writing every day. I mean---I do; I write for my homework, I write in a medical journal, I write rants that I never show anyone else... But I want to get back into writing stories. There's this novel that's been sitting in the back of my brain for months, and I haven't got it on paper yet. I love seeing your little updates of how much you've written each day, but do you have any tips on how to motivate myself and get into the habit of doing the same?

I do! And honestly, posting those little updates is one of them. Nine times out of ten I’m the only one reading them, but posting one every day gives me an extra little kick to get my writing in, especially if I’m not getting started until late in the evening and I’m already about to burn out. Because if I don’t, I have to admit my failure to the internet, and nobody wants to do that. So that’s one idea: make yourself publicly accountable. (Tumblr is just one way to do it, and you’re welcome to jump on the what I wrote today tag if you think that would help!) But this is part of a larger point about making progress, which is that you have a much greater incentive to make progress if you can see that you’re making progress. 

Let me expand: Writing a novel is a long, long commitment. If you have traditional publishing in mind, you’re talking literally three to five years from start to finish. If not traditional publishing, you’re still talking at least a year or two if you have any hopes of producing something truly good that won’t mortify you down the road. That’s daunting. The easiest way I’ve found to get motivated and stay motivated is to have a plan and stick to it. This doesn’t just mean planning to write 500 words or whatever every day, because that’s not enough structure. What I’m talking about is a comprehensive game plan which takes every part of the process into account, all the way from outline to a polished MS. So sit down with a calendar in front of you and ask yourself what amount of time you think you need to get a first draft down on paper. It’s going to depend on how long you think the finished book will probably be, how much time you have to write every day, how your personal outlining process works, and so on. Then set goals, or checkpoints. Maybe you want to have a finished outline by April 1st. Maybe then you can expect to write 1,000 words a day and have your first five chapters by the beginning of May. I don’t know; this is something you have to figure out for yourself. But what’s crucial, in my experience, is having that concrete plan. This is for two reasons: (1) it’s much less daunting to sit down and work  each day if you know exactly what you have to accomplish that day to stay on track and (2) when you do it this way you have tangible proof that yes, you are making progress. And that’s huge. Nothing motivates me to keep writing like the knowledge that every day I’m getting closer to having a finished first draft in my hands.

Now, how you choose to go about doing this is something I can’t really tell you, because everybody’s creative process is different. Personally I know that my first drafts usually come in a little over 100,000 words, but that’s not the only factor. You have to budget time for research, reading (if you’re not reading you have no business writing), and all your other daily obligations. So for me, right now, working with a completed outline, the magic quotient is around 750 words a day on average. For you it may be totally different. You have to find what works. The good news is, there are a lot of tools out there to help you. Here are just a few you can find on this blog:

  • Writer’s Toolbox: A whole bunch of apps and software and freeware to help you write. Find that here
  • Outlining tips: If you’re totally overwhelmed by the concept of outlines and don’t understand how they’re going to help you, I’ve proselytized about that at length here
  • Time management: If you know what you have to write but you’re having trouble staying focused, you’ll find help for that here and here.
  • Motivation: If you’re having trouble staying motivated even after this lengthy post, there’s more advice about that here.
  • General writing advice: You’ll find all that and a bag of chips right here.

I know this is a lot. But writing is one of those things that requires a lot of trial and error and, yes, time. Hopefully some of this, if you take the time to read it, will actually help you to be more productive in the long run. 

Of course, if you have any questions about anything I’ve said here or elsewhere, don’t hesitate to hit the inbox again!

oops i have more anger

i was scrolling through @periegesisvoid’s posts filtering for posts with the word “jew” in them looking to see if they were really converting. i didn’t find anything but honestly i don’t want to know, because i’d like to assume that one (1) thing is still pure. but anyway.

periejfgeuifhiisvoid has reblogged a lot of posts about antisemitism. this isn’t surprising, as antisemites like to cover their tracks in the sense that they’ll agree with the Good Jews and show their true colors to the Bad Jews. that was aggravating enough. but what was more annoying was that they felt the need to leave comments on these posts. here are some examples. 

this is a post made by jews for non-jews to reblog as a source of information and to even check their own antisemitism. so why did perigoy feel the need to leave this unnecessary comment? there’s nothing antisemitic about it (although of course the fact that an antisemite is leaving it makes my blood boil) but it’s just… annoying? why would you come onto a Jew Post to make a Jew Joke while not being A Jew and having a track record of Not Caring About Jews? stay in your lane honey

this post is honest to god a jewish joke. i have literally no idea why they felt the need to reblog it. staying in your lane costs zero dollars and zero cents. 

and here’s another post in that tag, where periegoyseisvoid is right back to antisemitism and calling us Bad Aphobic Jews Who Couldn’t Possibly Know What Nazi Symbols Look Like As Well As I, A White Goy Who Writes Tentacle Porn. as you can see, their “caring about jews” facade is very performative and holds literally no validity or action. 

it infuriates me that inclusionists as a whole suck so fucking much that they would allow this antisemitic garbage to maintain popularity in their circles. and it double infuriates me that the antisemitic garbage in question has tricked people into thinking they aren’t antisemitic garbage. 

non-jews are free to reblog this. but please don’t add unnecessary shit.

MC MOODBOARD: I was in the mood to make a moodboard ( no pun intended ) for Yukimura’s MC since I’ve literally played his route 4 times in a row now LOL I wonder if the donuts gave it away. While she wasn’t my favorite MC, I found the idea of having to wait for your lover without ever knowing if he’d come back, to be incredibly lonely and even nerve-racking. I sort of made this on a whim so if it doesn’t …. make sense (?) just… enjoy the aesthetics. Ignore this description v(^-^ “)v

hey, writers!

i would really love it if we could do larry remix fic fest like they do for hp/drarry. i really love reading those and i think it would be really cool. right now it’s just a thought and idk who else reads them or knows what i’m talking about, but i’m about to tag the hell out of some writers just to make sure you see this and think about it a bit. here’s a link to the 2017 drarry remix fest, check out the faqs and info so you can see what it’s about. 

@louandhazaf @alarrylarrie @waytoomanypeopleintheaddisonlee @a-writerwrites @phd-mama @greenfeelings @alivingfire @gloriaandrews @100percentsassy @xabjectlessonsx @theficwritersblock @nottooldforthisship @lucystarkid @lululawrence @dimpled-halo @juliusschmidt @cherrystreet 

ok so tumblr is being a pain in the ass so i’m not tagging anyone else, but please reblog or message or whatever. this is just literally a thought that i just had when the hd-remix post came across my dash, so i have no well formed ideas about it at all. it’s totally possible that this has been done before and i’m just not aware of it.

sometimes i forget how much major character death triggers me but then it happens and i get so shaken and i think………… oh thats why i don’t like that. wow. lol. lets not do that again.

Happy Valentines Day! (❁´▽`❁)*✲゚*

Daichi is the home tutor for Bokuto (and most of the time Kuroo too bc they’re neighbors and have been friends since they were kids)

In case you’re wondering “what kind of a KH name is Blaine?!” like I am:

1. From a Scottish surname derived from the given name Bláán, meaning “yellow” or “the source of a river” in Gaelic

2. A traditional Celtic name, meaning “lean and strong”

3. As an Irish name, it means “thin”

4. Urban Dictionary says it means “to be a complete failure” (originated from Rooster Teeth’s Blaine Gibson)

5. Can you tell that I have no idea what the meaning behind his name is (or at least the meaning Nomura wanted to convey)

6. What we do know is that it’s gonna be freaking impossible for him to have a proper tag because of his name, just like literally everyone else in chi arghhhh

This is how Chapter 2 went right
