NoHateAwarenessWeek: Love your content creator!

This is a post for ALL types artists and content creators, whether it’s fanart, fanfic, meta, graphics, etc.

There are so a number of these people that I personally interact with, some I’m closer friends with, some that are distant senpais, and some that I may have not even met yet (and still discovering!)–

I want to give an honorary shout out to a few of my best friends who have created some amazing content in the past and deserve a visit!  Plus they’re really cool people in general: @angellust155 (@dustys-art), @roypoptart, and @phantomkim!  Thanks for being such awesome friends.  I love you guys, you’ve been there for me through tough times and good times, and supported what I love to do.  Whatever our interests are now, I wanna say thanks for being my squad when and where it counts!  <3

And now a special thanks, in no particular order-

@erensjaegerbombs : (writer/graphics) Heidi!  You’re honestly such inspiration to so many people around you, me included.  Your writing is very gripping and passionate, whether it’s your fic or your meta, you’re so well-spoken, empathetic, and creative.  Your edits are also top-notch quality and I get excited when I see them on my dash!  You have very unique design ideas that’re both pleasant to look at and entertaining.  Jot that down with being an overall kind and fun person- you are an amazing friend that I am proud of having.  Continue doing the best you can and have fun with it, and know that you have a lot of fans and friends who encourage you!

@perfectfearsomebeauty : (writer) Amy, you’re another very close friend of mine, but that isn’t the big reason I’m directing attention to you.  While I know you are newer to posting your headcanons and fics, between our conversations, I think you have an explorative mind and one that not only thinks critically, but also creatively.  I hope you continue posting, no matter the content.  Keep being you!  There are a great deal of ideas that should see the light, but you really are worthy of being called an artist because you create.  You’re also a loyal and compassionate person, who I cherish very much.  Never give up and keep making, friend!

@writer-person : (writer) Moneé, like the name states, you are an incredibly talents writer who clearly puts a lot of thought and soul into your work.  While sometimes my schedule doesn’t permit me to read a lot of fic all at once, I’m always on the hype for what you put up.  It makes my day and you come up with interesting themes, and I love how you write the characters with such purpose.  You also speak up some good ideas and I tend to really support the headcanons you have (esp. shippy ones, oops).  But you do have a bright mind that shouldn’t go unappreciated.  Thanks for being a consistently great writer and amazing friend!

@fuku-shuu : (writer/graphics) Let me tell you your writing is one of the biggest things that inspired me to walk into the RM fandom.  Your words are so elegant and descriptive and I can really feel every emotion a character holds, and that’s huge.  I also adore your pretty and cute doodles, rare as they are.  And your clear (and sometimes funny) graphics are something I look forward to come new animations.  And meta of course should not go unnoticed!  You’re a great friend and creator of all sorts and I hope you understand and feel the appreciation on this day and more.

@daydream24-7 : (artist) Rose, the way you draw characters has a lot of expression to it, and you make it uniquely your own!  I’m a huge fan of your Mikasas, especially!  You also write well and I love your insightful input when people ask you questions.  Keep doing what you’re doing, friend!  c:

@kaschy aka @kaschy-art : (artist) We’ve only recently become friends, but I’ve known your work for longer.  Among one of my favorite Reiner and Bertholdt (and other warriors) artists, your art is hella amazing, expressive and funny (or angsty, depending on the mood lol).  You’ve always got a story to tell with each piece and I love it!  Never stop!  You’re doing so well!

@redcoaster : (artist/writer) Love them titan abs and butts!  But seriously, the way you add a sense of realism to something that is entirely fictional- it’s all very believable and holds a life of its own.  That’s what I value a lot in art and yours completely stuns me.  I hope you know how valued your work is, so the effort is well worth it.  You’re such a talent!

@alemanriq : (artist) I can always pinpoint your drawings whenever it pops up on my dash, and whether or not I’ve seen it before, it always grabs my attention.  Not to mention the lot of your humorous art brightens my day.  You’re super funny and the style is definitely you.  Hope you keep on truckin’ because what you do makes me and I’m sure a lot of people really happy!

@jaeeg : (artist) You’re a young artist but an example that no matter what age, what you create can get a person giddy or at loss for words (in the best way!)  You’re very funny, but I enjoy seeing your doodles and more fleshed out pieces!  You give me a lot of motivation when you start drawing, so thanks for that too lol!

@toruq : (artist) Another young artist that makes me smile and intrigued with each drawing made.  A definite growing talent, you’re amazing now and will be even more so!  You’re also a hilarious person!  I hope you know you are a joy as a human being and skilled as an artist!  I wanna see more always!

@kenken-chan : (artist/writer) You really are a jack of all trades- with your writing and art, you’re quite a talent!  I remember seeing your RM art when I first entered the ship fandom and knowing you ship my ships and write and draw them so well- makes my heart explode from what I see.  I’m always up for seeing and reading more, you have a gift!

@momtaku : (writer) Can you see me?  lol I hope you know that despite all that’s happened, you remain an inspiration to many meta writers in this fandom.  The blog certainly generated a lot of discussion that has been essential in the activity of this fandom and you’re a marvelous person both as such a fan and a person in general.

@aurieackerman : (graphics) Not only do you run a bunch of blogs that make the ER ship feel alive again, you also provide quality graphics and edits!  What you do is highly regarded and I’m grateful for it, as well as having the pleasure to talk to you!  Thank you!

@nakamatoo : (graphics) Another amazing graphics maker!  I love the special quotes you use that relate to the subject of the animation, it makes the entire sequence poetic and you can tell you put a lot of thought.  You are also a caring person who has talked to me throughout a variety of moods- I appreciate you dealing with me then too hahah!  Keep doing the beautiful work you do!

@freelance7 : (writer) We worked together on the SnK Artist’s Big Bang event and I was absolutely thrilled to work with such a talented writer, especially on a ship I honestly could afford to give much love to.  You write beyond well and being a witness to your process I know you are attentive to those talents.  You made a lovely story and I was proud to illustrate for it.  We make a good team!

The post is becoming long and honestly there is…so much I want to say to some many people.  Ones that I’ve never even talked to.  Ones that I’ve yet to read their stories.  Ones that I’ve yet to even meet.  I don’t think what I have to say can amount to the sheer emotion of gratitude for those who share what they love with a multitude of people.  To those aforementioned individuals- I have you on my mind.  At this point, I do still want to briefly mention others who have made that impact:

BERNIE WOLFE

“The toughest most valuable lesson I ever learned was focus on the job in front of you..whatever the outcome here, you are strong enough to fight this”. 


Soon I’ll be taking a tumblr hiatus for a few months to focus on adulting..so under the cut is a truly indulgent post of me waxing lyrical on how much I heart the Wolfe..some of it is speculative because I imagine I’ll be offline throughout her “exit arc” and so I won’t get a chance to freak out and fangirl with you all in real time…  SEE BELOW  BUT ONLY IF YOU WANNA…


Oh god lord, Berenice bloody Wolfe.  I vaguely remember deciding to watch Holby City for Jemma Redgrave way back when it was announced she was going to play Bernie and I’m not one bit sorry I did. I love Bernie Wolfe, have done since day 1 and even through radio silence-gate and severe lack of screen time-gate. She’s fantastic and completely fearless in matters of work/ war/ stressful situations and all that big macho army medic stuff. But in matters of the heart Bernie Wolfe is really rather fragile, completely uncertain and rather scared to destroy the things she holds so dear. I imagine she’s lost an awful lot of relationships throughout her life to a fear, or a reluctance, to express just how deeply she feels things and how much she cares. She’s always been entirely brilliant as a surgeon and leader, shown herself to be a great team member and friend, and a source of strength for others when they’re feeling the very worst a person can feel. That good old British reserve is steeped so deep within how she approaches and reacts to every situation..she’s always a pillar of strength, but never stoic. She never wavers in the face of others expressing extreme outbursts of emotion despite that being a world away from how she expresses herself..she gives them time and whatever it is they need from her at that moment. 

We know the trauma unit is going..and I just hope that there is someone there for her, to return that favour, and I hope she feels safe enough to really allow herself the time to grieve for all the things she’s lost and all the things she’s been through..in whatever way she chooses. I’m not just talking about crying or shouting out rage in the face of Nina and Guy those fucking snAKES . I know some fans have long thought “something HAS to give, she has to break down”, but it isn’t like that for everyone. Yes loss and hurt is sometimes a roaring and screeching thing, tangible and on the surface for all to see..but sometimes for others it’s silent, never outwardly expressed but it is ever present. I just want Bernie to feel safe enough to express herself when she’s upset or angry in whichever way works best for her. Obviously this all depends if holby city have actually taken the time to treat her like a fully-realised person, a character within her own right, but let’s face it they’ve probably taken the trauma unit away from her and then provided little to no follow up.. but in the face of optimism I just deeply hope that holby city have at least written something to show those emotional complexities before she leaves (because we know Jemma is doing theatre so there’s only a matter of time). So if the trauma unit being taken away is the beginning of the end for Bernie Wolfe (pre Jemma’s play..I’m not saying she’ll never be back but as of yet..we don’t have a lot to go on).. I just hope Jemma Redgrave is given ample time to really shine, because she’s a bloody fantastic actress and she plays Bernie so beautifully. Bernie Wolfe entered holby as an already very complexed character but there is still so much untouched potential because holby city have rarely focused on her long enough since Life in the Freezer to provide us with more insight. I just hope Holby city have done her justice in her last few episodes if they are to be her last on the show because if they haven’t it’s a disservice not only to the actor but to the character who’s made a massive impact on the show within such a short space of time. If she does return and there’s to be more Bernie Wolfe in the future then I hope the show’s writing is more reminiscent of the days before Kiev, where they actually cared about their characters. S19 has not been a good year imo, for any of the characters because the writing just hasn’t been that good. 

Long like really long story short, watching Bernie Wolfe has been a riot and something I’ll relive for as long as the youtube’s exist..praise jesus for Nat’s Playlist and if I was laid out on the table, I’d want her to be the one standing over me- and I don’t just mean that in the smutty way, but in the fictional surgeon way. For me there’s no-one better than Bernie Wolfe. The BMAM/ the precious pupper/ the woman that invented legs. I more than like her. 

Sorry this all seems a tad previous, she hasn’t left yet and to be honest she might even still be on the show when I come back to tumblr LOLS, but I’m guessing she won’t be and so preemptively wanted to share some feels. I’m gutted it won’t be in real time and that I’ll miss all the bantz and gifs etc. Being part of this fandom has been SO MUCH FUN omg it’s been brilliant and for the sake of actually focusing on my job and eeek personal life for the next few months, I’m tapping out. I’ll be back and I hope you have continue to have loads of fun, I’m looking forward to seeing all the quality content when I’m back :)

oops edited to add ~ I’ve been given an amazing opportunity with my work and I’m going to Holland tomorrow for placement wheee hence my “I better bloody focus and get off my blog” decision hah! I’m tremendously excited but also shitting a brick™ ..here goes nothing,

Thanks for getting this far if you’re still reading!!

This Was a Bad Idea

This Was a Bad Idea by evansrogerskitten

Inspired by this tweet. Shit, I’m sorry Jeff. This just happened and I blame my art and even I’m ashamed LOL Also @jml509 because you’re also to blame! 

Warnings: omg its JDM masturbation and again, oops. But it was needed after this tweet and I needed this meta shit. WC: 700-somethin’

Oh, and in no way is this beta-ed. I just wrote it and also, I’ve had the margaritas. 


Jeff snapped the screen shot as he stared down at his phone.

 “Huh.” he muttered, the small screen with Tumblr on the main page. He’d accidentally come across it, and following the link wasn’t a good idea. The house was quiet, yet he listened for a moment to make sure everything was still. He reclined back on his couch, peering at the website through his black-framed glasses.

Marichat Day 10: What If...

*Waves hands in the general direction of this story*

I don’t know what this is. I’m sorry. I was supposed to be writing the Marichat Day 11 prompt, but was immediately inspired by Day 10 instead so… Oops? Also, this has been 0% edited because its 1:30 am and I could wait until tomorrow to edit/ post but ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ 

It’s accidentally almost 2k lol oops ,,


What If…

“What if I told you to come back next week, same time?” She asked softly, trying to read the bright green eyes staring back at her. She isn’t sure what compelled her to ask, what made her want him to return. But it was there, and she had been biting back the question all night. Maybe it was because he looked lonely, she thought. Maybe it’s because his ears were drooped and his tail was limp when she caught him sitting out on her balcony. Maybe it was the way he seemed to come to life when she made him laugh, when she snuck him some cookies, when she talked about her new designs. Maybe it was the way his smile made her feel light inside. She isn’t sure exactly what it is, but she’s drawn to him in a way she can’t explain.

“Well, I guess I’d see you next week,” He says, a small but pleased smile on his lips.

“Maybe I’ll have some warm croissants saved for you, just in case you do come by.” She says, and watches the way his smile brightens even more, his eyes almost actually look happy.

“Maybe I won’t be able to wait until next week then,” He says with a chuckle, and Marinette beams. He leaves a short while later, and Marinette almost wishes she could have asked him to stay a little longer.


 

“What if I told you to never come back?” Marinette asked softly, avoiding his eyes. She can’t look at him, not when his eyes are so easy to read. He wears his expressions so openly with her, it’s like she has a front row seat to his soul. It’s amazing and awe-inspiring and heartbreaking all at once. Because it’s too much.

He came back every week, the same night, the same time. They smiled and laughed and shared treats. She showed him her sketches, he sat and watched her sow, she drew pictures of him. They coloured on magazine pictures together, sitting on the balcony and watching the sun set. They played video games while sitting shoulder to shoulder. They laid on their backs and counted stars together, and he told her that she shined brighter than every star in the universe. He napped in her lap while she played with his hair, listening to music softly. They sang to goofy songs together, making up the words when they forgot them.

She got so used to seeing him, to him landing on her balcony and knocking on her door, to him smiling at her with those soulful green eyes that always seemed to be sincerely happy to see her. She got so used to his smile and his laugh and his voice and his arms around her and when did she get so used to this? When did this become something she wasn’t sure she could live without? When did she fall in love with Chat Noir?

It wasn’t supposed to happen like this. But the more she thought about it, the more she knew for certain that she was in love with him. The way her stomach swooped when he smiled. How she anxiously waited for him to come visit, sitting on her balcony in joyful anticipation. How she examined herself in the mirror before he arrived, adding a little colour to her lips, hoping he’ll notice. She was in love with him. And she felt horrible.

How could she ever really love him? After she had spurred him away as Ladybug? After she had rejected him time and time again? And what about Adrien? Her heart still longed for the other blonde boy in her life. How could she love them both at the same time? It wasn’t fair to either of them.

Chat Noir was quiet for a long time, and Marinette caved in and looked into those green, green eyes. She expected to see confusion, heartbreak, anger, something. But he was closed off. And that hurt even more than any other emotion he could’ve shown. He was never closed off with her, not even after a stressful day. He was always so sincere and honest with every look. She never had to wonder how he felt or if he was being authentic. But not tonight. Because Marinette had slammed the book shut.

“Well,” He said, turning away to lean against the balcony banister. He stared off at the starry night for a long moment, contemplating what he was going to say. “If that’s what you wanted Princess, I’d never come back.”

Marinette’s eyes filled with tears, no matter how much she willed them away. How dare this boy still be sweet when she was nothing but unfair and cruel?

“I don’t want you to stay away.” She said softly, her voice weak and strained. She didn’t want to cry in front of him. It wasn’t another burden she could bear to put on his back.

“Then I’ll come back. I’ll do whatever you need me to do Marinette.” The sincerity was back, but Marinette didn’t dare to look up and see.

They spent a long moment in silence, before Marinette took a deep breath. She couldn’t look at the super hero, so instead she spoke to the night sky. “It’s getting late, you should probably go.” Her voice sounded much colder than she wanted it to. Chat Noir shifted, and Marinette was filled with panic. Was he leaving? Was he angry? Did he hate her? Would he leave and never come back? She reached out for him, grasping his hand but still refusing to look at him. She found herself at a loss for words.

“Same time next week?” He asked softly, and all Marinette could do was nod. Chat hummed beside her, before leaning over and gently kissing her forehead. He squeezed her hand once and then was gone, disappearing into the night sky. Marinette felt her heart breaking more as he got farther away.


 

“What if I asked you to never leave?”

Was that a selfish thing to ask, she asks to herself? It’s too late to take the words back now, but she can’t help but wish she could grab the words and shove them back where they came from. Now that they’re spoken out loud though, Marinette desperately needs to know the answer. She had been wondering ever since the kiss. What would happen if he just stayed?

It had taken Marinette a long time to sort her feelings out. She felt horrible for taking her emotions out on Chat, for putting more of her emotional baggage in his hands. She apologized to him the next week, when he returned without fail. She had baked hi special kitty cookies to make up for being a horrible friend the week prior. He assures her that his feelings were purrfectly intact, but Marinette still couldn’t shake the image of Chat closing his walls on her. Not that she blamed him, of course. She had attacked him with her question out of the blue. How was he supposed to know she was having an emotional crisis?

In the end, it had taken a few weeks for her to really sort her feelings out. Should she beat herself up for having feelings for two different boys? Tikki assured her that it was completely normal for humans to have romantic affection for many people at once, and even her mother had assuaged the young girl’s guilt. She cared for Adrien very deeply, maybe even loved him. But she didn’t even know him, not really. Chat Noir had opened up for her in a way that no one else could, and there was no denying the love she held for her superhero partner.

It had taken weeks after that before she had the guts to kiss him. The thought had been there, in the back of her mind every time he came to visit. The moonlight would shine on his face in the perfect way and she’d just think kiss him. Kiss him now. But she never did. She made a lame joke that made him laugh so hard he fell off his chair, and she internally crooned kiss him you idiot. But she didn’t. She made a pun and watched his face light up with pure, unadulterated joy, and she practically screamed at herself to just bloody kiss him already! But still, she resisted. It wasn’t until they were sitting at her computer playing video games that she actually decided that tonight would be the night that she kissed him. If he wanted to, at least.

And she did. She had been so distracted during their video game match that Chat Noir had actually managed to get the upper hand and win the game. He hooted with joy at the victory and was about to turn and playfully rub it in Marinette’s face. Except Marinette’s face was a lot closer than he was expecting.

“A victory kiss,” She breathed, and watched the way Chat Noir’s eyes flicked to her lips, the way his tongue darted out to wet his own, and she leaned in, pressing her lips against his. It was sweet, innocent, and yet they were both completely out of breath by the time they parted.

“God I’ve been wanted to do that for so long now,” He breathed, and Marinette felt her heart swell.

She wanted to ask them there, then, if he could stay. Never leave, just… stay there, with her. But she couldn’t find the words and even if she could, it was too soon to say them. In the end he had to leave, because it was late and a school night. But he promised to return the next night, and every night after that if she wanted.

They’ve kissed a few more times since then, at least once per visit, but they haven’t talked about what it meant. Marinette wonders if he’s hesitating for the same reason she is. If they decide to take this further than just innocent kisses, it would mean everything would change, forever. There’s no way Marinette could date the boy without telling him that she’s Ladybug first. And Chat Noir wouldn’t want to date her if he couldn’t do it as a civilian. And while Marinette wanted nothing more than to be able to love Chat Noir in all forms… Were either of them really ready for that?

In the end, it hadn’t mattered if they were ready or not. Not when Ladybug accidentally witnessed Chat Noir detransforming after one long, draining akuma attack, upon which she discovered that the blond superhero she was in love with was also the blond super model she was in love with. Of course Marinette decided the best course of action was to wait for Chat on her balcony that night transformed as Ladybug, so that all secrets were on the table. That led to one very long, very late conversation, which leads to…

“Well my lady, I guess I’d have to build myself a fort here on your balcony and stay forever,” He mused, pulling Marinette in closer. They were standing on the balcony, leaning against the railing and staring at the Eiffel Tower, enjoying each other’s company.

“You know what I mean, kitty.” She said with a soft chuckle, entwining her hand with her boyfriend’s.

“I’m all yours Marinette,” He murmured, kissing her temple. “I’ll be here for as long as you’ll have me.”

“Forever it is then,” She said, turning to face him, reaching up on her tiptoes and sealing the deal with a kiss.

Cz accidentally writes a passionate essay about UTAU and stuff.

Oops, long post guys. Sorry. I just sort of work up this morning and started typing it. It seems important, so I’m just gonna put it here and make sure to shove the rest of it into a read more down below. Good luck. LOL


I never had formal training in linguistics. In fact, I hadn’t studied it at all when I started my work in UTAU back in 2009. This gave me quite a disadvantage when it came to working with other people in the fandom. No one really took me seriously and I didn’t know any of the right vocabulary. “What do you mean by glottal stop??” But I think this may have actually given me an advantage when I started to work with English in UTAU.
