I must ask this question... Have you ever felt like giving up on the comic?
Actually this is really funny because this is one of our inside jokes. Before we had Anna helping us with grammar/spelling, we usually spotted mistakes (and they were pretty big ones!) after posting a pageset. Which did cause some distress and a rush to fix it before it got too many reblogs with the mistakes on it. Our reactions were like this:
After the first two or so times, we started screaming “That’s it, we’re deleting the blog. I quit!” And it just became our joke for every time we made a big mistake.
We’ve had other inside jokes. But this one is probably my favorite just because of how stupidly dramatic we made it out to be.
((if you see a mistake on an old reblog, check the originals first. It might be one of those mistakes that weren’t found until it was far too late… but we fixed it anyway.))
But to answer your question, we never seriously considered quitting the comic. We want to see our stories through to the end. Or where ever we decide the end is!
Okay I need to let my feelings out. So I’m just going to do it here.
First of all, I want to congratulate Bangtan for winning their second Daesang award at the MAMA 2016. Artist of the Year, goddamnit. They won their first one for Best Album of the Year at the MMAs. I can’t fucking believe how far they have come in such a short span of time, and it just proves how amazingly talented these wonderful boys are. I’m saying short, because winning Daesang awards within three years since debut from a company that is not one of the ‘three huge companies’ is such an amazing achievement to do for a boygroup that started off as nugus. I became an ARMY only after the INU era, but I had been following them roughly from the beginning. They started off with No More Dream, and besides the fact that I jammed the fuck out of myself on these songs (lol), I already could see how talented these boys were. Also, when I found out that they wanted to ‘stand out’, and tell the world an important message with their own music, I knew that these boys would be able to come far in their carriere if they would work hard, and try their best.
A few months after No More Dream came out, I started to pay less attention to them, but I still watched their MVs and some of their comeback performances. I could see them growing slowly, their fanbase became bigger and they were gaining more skills and experience. I was basically a diehard Exo stan, so at that time, I didn’t pay too much attention to BTS. That was until I Need U. I can still remember myself being blown away by that song, looking at the MV with my mouth literally half agape. I felt like I Need U was the beginning of a complete another side of BTS, the side that fits them, that belongs to them. I saw their first comeback stage for INU a few days later, and I was snatched. I was fucking snatched you don’t even fucking know. Their perfomance, the fanchants, the message in their lyrics. It hit me all. It’s thanks to INU that I became an ARMY, and I still listen to that song every day to remind myself of the fact how I became a fan of this wonderful 7-membered boygroup.
When I saw Bangtan winning the Artist of the Year award today, I suddenly could see their 2013 appearance in front of me. I could see them in their horrible No More Dream outfits, the era in which they were just fighting for that Rookie of the Year award, which they eventually got as well. I realized that they became this successfull with their own blood, sweat and tears. They keep saying that it’s all thanks to us ARMYs that they have come this far, but honestly, it’s all because of Bangtan themselves. It’s all because of their effort, their stamina and their own hard work that they have become THIS far. Without their efforts, we ARMYs would not even be here. ARMY does not exist without Bangtan. And I hope they realize this fact.
They will probably never see this message, but on behalf of all ARMYs, I want to thank Bangtan for their hard work, for their efforts to make some great and beautiful music with meaningfull messages in them. Messages that every single ARMY cherishes, and keep these in their hearts. Thank you Bangtan, for existing, and giving ARMYs all over the world you see what I did there ;) a reason to keep going and to be happy.
Thank you Namjoon, for being a great leader for over 3 years, and taking care of the other members like they’re your own brothers. Thank you for producing and making great music for Bangtan, and wanting to change the world with the messages you want to convey. You’re an amazing person. Without you, Bangtan would not even exist. So thank you.
Thank you Seokjin, for giving it a chance even though you thought you would not fit in this group because of the hip hop concept. Even though you did not had any experience in singing or dancing, you still tried your best to make something out of it. And you fucking did it. Your danceskills got improved drastically, and not to speak about your amazing voice. You’re a rolemodel for so many ARMYs out there. Thank you.
Thank you Yoongi, for sharing your burdens with us in your mixtape. For inspiring us to chase our dreams, and encouraging us to speak up about our own burdens and problems. It takes a lot of courage to do that, and you just did it, and probably without regrets. Yoongi, you’re definitely a person ARMYs look up to every single day. Thank you for being such a wonderful and amazing person.
Thank you Hoseok, for being such a never ending sunshine that keeps smiling through the days, even when it’s hard sometimes. Your smile keeps me positive and motivated, and it helps us reminding of the fact that being sulky does not help anyways. You’re the golden hyung, and amazingly talented in as well as dancing, rapping and singing. You can do it all, and you have to know that ARMYs appreciate everything that you do for us. You did a great job with your intro for Wings. The applause and praise you wanted for that intro, you got them all, well deserved. Thank you.
Thank you Jimin, for NEVER giving up, for working hard CONSTANTLY only to show us a better side of you, and to make us happy. You have to know that it’s okay not to have abs, and just be yourself in front of us, because that is what makes us ARMYs the happiest. You’re the sweetest, cutest mochi I have ever seen in my life, and I want to thank you for being such a great support for the other members, always lending them your shoulders when they have burdens. Thank you. You’re an amazing person.
Thank you Taehyung, for being your fucking self even if you have an idol image to maintain. You got criticized a lot for your behavior, but you always managed to be yourself and just be happy with the other members, and I know that must take a lot of courage as an idol. Taehyung, please keep doing you. I believe you’re definitely one of the strongest vocalists in the group and I’m lowkey hoping big hit will give you more chances to shine, and I hope your drama will be a great succes. Thank you.
Thank you Jungkook, for maintaining yourself in this industry while you’re still so young. You’re amazingly talented, and everyone probably knows that already, but I feel like you have to realize this as well in order to let yourself bloom even more. Don’t be too harsh on yourself, because that’s the last thing you actually deserve. You’re a cute, sweet bunny your hyungs and ARMYs always will cherish. Thank you for loving your hyungs until infinity, and thank you for spoiling us ARMYs with that wonderful angellic voice of yours,
Thank you Bangtan, for giving ARMYs the most beautiful moment in life. <3
No you your stuff does not have to be all in black and white. All you need for the first step is DECLUTTER!
Throw out your middle school project that’s collecting dust in your closet. Donate or sell all your used clothes that you don’t use any more and don’t use the excuse “oh I might use it one day” NO! Don’t do it. Get rid of at least 40% of your belongings. Throw away old pens that ran out of ink 10 years ago. Delete pictures in your phone that is not worthy of keeping. Delete contacts you have not talked to in years! Organize your paper work and throw away old receipts and only keep the important document. Minimalize your makeup. Throw away expired makeup. If you don’t remember when you bought it, throw it away. Don’t buy anything you don’t need at the grocery store. Make lists before you go shopping!
You have to let go of your belongings. Most of it is irrelevant! Do you really need that picture of a cat on your phone? No! You will forget about everything being gone anyways. You wont even notice!!
I’ve been working on this piece in between breaks, and since we have a day off today I managed to get to work and finish it! This is the first proper piece of art I’ve ever done of Waka ºAº
HOW DARE I HE’S MY FAVORITE CHARACTER IN OKAMI I SHOULD BE ASHAMED OF MYSELF HE’S MY ONE TRUE LOVE-
I’ve wanted to upload a proper drawing of him for a long time. I’m glad I finally drew something with him that I’m proud of.
I can’t do backgrounds still, BUT this is supposed to be just after Waka’s first boss fight, in Agata Forest. I actually had never really noticed the sparkles that appear when he makes this movement in the scene lol
At any rate, I will leave my darling here, being fabulous as always.
I’m all up for one to none conversations (except…i’m not giving you an option this time.) So for my old followers, let me catch you up on what I’ve been up to these past three weeks! And new followers (which i got a lot of) Hi. I just came out of a hiatus :3
have you heard of the game Night In The Woods? I would love to see you play it ^u^
yeah i actually bought it the other day and recorded one episode of it intending to put in on JudyCube! i think my only problem is that when i was recording it nothing really felt interesting enough to post. I went ahead and deleted my first attempt cause thinking back on it I’m really not proud of it and it didn’t have a lot to offer from an entertainment standpoint. I would like to play it on recording somehow though. I might do a stream of it, which is usually suited for things that are a lot more casual like my first recording turned out to be. we’ll see!
(This one is very dark and has some triggery stuff some people might want to stay away from. This is also a bit of a cheat. I wrote this ages ago. It’s actually a scene I cut from my fic ‘Bank Robbers and Cutpurses’. I felt it took away from stuff that happened later on in the fic but I liked it too much to delete it)
Snart pursed his lips thoughtfully. “Okay,” he said. “How about
this: your first kill.”
Rip’s eyes widened and he stared at Snart in disbelief. “My… my
what?” he said, stuttering slightly, his voice falling to a hoarse
“Who was your first kill?” said Snart, matter-of-factly. “Now
that’s something I know you won’t have forgotten.”
Rip swallowed convulsively and looked away, a dozen emotions passing
across his pale face.
“Don’t act like you’ve never killed anyone,” said Snart. “Please.
I’ve seen you do it. You’re quite the sharpshooter and I saw how
quick little Michael was with a knife. You were pretty vicious for a
kid. So who was it? How old were you when…?”
“I was eight,” Rip snapped, his voice now rising in anger.
“Alright. I was eight. One of the older boys got a hold of me,
dragged me into an alley. He was going to… If I hadn’t…” He bit
his lip and turned away.
Unwanted memories began pushing their way to the surface of Rip’s
mind: the hands grabbing him, the pain, the panic, the blood. He
pushed back shoving the memories into the recesses of his mind once
more. Squeezing his eyes shut, he took a deep breath and got his
spiralling thoughts back in control, but with that control came the
nauseating realization of what he’d just done.
He’d told Snart.
He’d told Snart, of all people, one of his darkest memories, one he
hadn’t even shared with his wife.
Rip cursed himself. What had he done? Whether it was due to his
boiling anger or the concussion muddying his thoughts, it had been
foolish to let his tongue slip like that. Bracing himself, he turned
to look at Snart unsure what to expect. Disgust? Or perhaps triumph,
pleased that Rip had finally revealed his true colours, shown that he
wasn’t the good man he pretended to be.
Leonard, however, wasn’t even looking at him. He was gazing across
the room, his expression surprisingly neutral. “I was seventeen,”
he said. “Fresh off my second trip through juvie. Mick was off
somewhere.” He made a vague gesture. “So I got myself involved
with this crew. Guy in charge acted like he was my best friend,
treated me real nice, always helped me out with whatever I needed;
then after we finished this big job, he suddenly decided he didn’t
want to share. Took out the other two members of the crew before he
turned on me. Luckily, I was a quicker than he was.”
Rip stared at him not knowing what to say.
since then I’ve always made sure I was the one in charge,” Snart
continued. “That way no one could screw me over.”
I don’t usually get involved with a lot of the forum/submission blogs, or even make OOC text posts, but I followed that WrA Secrets page a while back. It’s gotten to the point where I’ve decided to unfollow this morning. Every post is someone flaming another person, or group of people. It’s always personal vendetta fueled by the power of anonymity.
For every one funny or serious RP secret, there are thirty hate/bash posts. I really do support community pages, but I can’t be apart of a breeding ground for cynicism and toxicity. We have enough of it on our server, it doesn’t need to be highlighted in a place we go to for inspiration and RP networking.
I kind of want like the double sided klance aka when they’re around others, their instinct is to fight to the death but when they’re alone, like if they’re paired up for a mission or if they’re the first ones to dinner or something they act completely different?? Like they don’t really talk in each other’s presence but if they do Keith manages to smile a little bit and Lance tells a considerably smaller amount of puns around Keith and he’s really polite and tbh they act like kind strangers that just met ?
Where was this going? I don’t know but I figure after a while, they start to realize the differences and how comfortable they are around each other and then maybe they get TOO cozy on accident like playing a weird game of footsie or like Keith kinda sitting too close to Lance or Lance awkwardly puts his hand over Keith’s and either someone walks in on them or they scare themselves and flee? And then they have a hard time adjusting again because of what happens but for some stupid reason none of them want to address it because labels are anxiety-inducing and the wordless company felt nice??
There is no conclusion lol just focus on Keith leaning into Lance because he likes being as close to him as humanly possible within their weird social boundaries

Word Count: 4,093 (geeeeeez okay I didn’t realize it got this long, whoops)
Request: So I deleted the original request by accident or something, but it went like this: Crowley meets Dean’s daughter for the first time. She calls him ‘Cow’, and he ends up giving her her own nickname.
She’s the sort of child one might see on a life insurance advertisement: youthful blond curls tied up in two ponytails, big blue puppy dog eyes, a perfect pink mouth, flawless skin, and a heart shaped face with enough baby fat to be adorable. Anyone could predict that she’ll grow up to be an attractive young woman. It’s in her genes, actually. Her mother could have been the plainest woman on the planet, but her father’s blood overpowered any ugliness she might have inherited.
It takes Crowley all of three seconds to determine who the little girl belongs to, and the first words out of his mouth are, “Your whole family is a line of God damn pretty people.”
first off, i am so sorry about what happened to you and your mother. truly, no human deserves such treatment. in regards to karamel, i think that it's important to consider that people, like you, have perspectives. it's not right to compromise your own mental health, but how people perceive abuse, including direct victims, differs. abuse does not exist in one universal state. among those who are vocal against karamel, some have experienced abuse in a way they see in mon-el...
i understand that people have different perspective of being abused, and i don’t mean to be rude about it. i just see nothing abusive about mon-el, and from what i’ve heard from several people being in abusive relationships, as well as witnessing them. i’ve not only witnessed abuse, i’ve been emotionally abused as well, by my mom. and though i love her, and i hate what happened to her, she did some of the same things to me.
there’s a difference between a bad relationship, a dishonest relationship and abuse. and i think that that’s a tough line to draw these days, you see one thing you might consider abusive and decide that the entire relationship is abusive and toxic. but there is still a difference.
abuse is someone who hurts you emotionally, or physically or both, manipulates you into thinking and acting like you in the worst way, they’d make you feel embarrassed of yourself and to be yourself. lies for their own benefit in hopes to gain something from it, an alternator motive if you may. an abuser always wants something from you, they take, and they rarely give back.
Seriously if you wait around for a guy to message you, you might as well delete your account he’s probably not even gonna see your account there are way more girls looking for guys than vice versa! I get it you’re nervous but if you’re gonna let nerves get the best of you you won’t get anything if you’re too shy you can’t be shy here
the worst that can happen is he turns you down don’t let one old sack of balls fuck with your self-esteem cast your net far and wide even if he says he doesn’t date AA or short girls or tall girls etc. carry yourself with enough confidence so you feel like you’re the “exception”
you fail once or get no reply or get turned down so fucking what!
Your post was accidentally deleted before I could respond in a normal fashion.
First off, there’s no such thing as “white witchcraft” (any books on Wicca tend to label magic in such a way) Witchcraft in itself is not inherently good or bad, it’s all in how people wish to use it.
There can be dangers in practicing any form of witchcraft, however. If you are new, and have never attempted a spell or ritual without proper wards, you might get backlash. Low energy in yourself is one example. Search through witchcraft tumblr tags for more in-depth info.
As for accidentally attracting spirits, it can happen, but it is a very rare thing. I would talk to @urbanspellcraft for more info on this subject, as I do not work with any kind of spiritual energy. They can help you or point you in the right direction of another blog who can.
I hope this has helped, and again I apologize for your post getting accidentally deleted. I noticed it wasn’t in a typical form for me to respond without posting it first. 🍄
✰ I believe that in one week, maybe two,
it will be one year since I started writing this book. And I couldn’t feel
happier about it! “La Noche de los Héroes” (”the night of the heroes”) has been a
long process but it’s finally taking form :) And I want to start off talking
about my progress this week.
✰ It was an amazing week. Especially because now I have
a notebook! It’s been two years but I finally can answer the question: what’s your
favourite place to write? It’s not that I didn’t have a computer, I had a
desktop computer in my home…which would not be a problem at all…but it is a
problem because I don’t live in my home hahaha I used to be able to write only
on weekends (one of the multiple reasons the process has been so slow for me)
and now I can write in many different places and it just makes me so happy! (Y’all
should try buying computers in Chile, you wouldn’t believe how cheap they are
✰ I have five chapters! I know it doesn’t
seem too much but as I’ve been stuck with Chapter 1 for six months (a
historical event in my life I like to call “The Great Block”) to be finally
moving on, it makes me so happy!
Chapter 1 (Un sueño hecho realidad / A dream come true)
Chapter 2 (Ciudad Basura / Garbage City)
Chapter 3 (¡Aventura en Steampunk! / Adventure In Steampunk!)
Chapter 4 (La Montaña Magnética / The Magnetic Mountain)
Chapter 5 (Dos Personas Solitarias / Two Lonely People)
WORD COUNT: 18.164 words.
I’ve always listened that the middle is the hardest part, but you guys wouldn’t believe how hard it was to write these five monsters. It took me at least one year to get them right and it was very complicated because I couldn’t make progress at all. It has been painful.
✰ However, after writing and line-editing them, I will begin the next week with this goal: to have one draft of chapter six, seven, eight, nine, and ten. (I don’t think i’m gonna make it lol).
