Shout out to Voltron for giving us Lance, a teenager that is shown, on screen, taking care of his skin while light years away from earth and the closest Ulta. He’s a true inspiration and it’s such a nice change of pace to see a guy character paying attention to his beauty regimen, because we don’t see that very often (if we’ve seen it at all) and we need more of it.

Special side shout out to him for also having the only outfit I could casually cosplay without looking a fool in public.

Femslashing It Up 2k17

To start off 2017, let’s take a look at where femslash is at right now. Here’s the current number of fics for the top ten pairings on AO3:

  • Drarry: 20,358
  • Wolfstar: 9,183
  • Snarry: 7,914
  • Ronmione: 5,543
  • Hinny: 4,356
  • Jily: 4,065
  • Dramione: 3,953
  • Snape/Hermione: 2,280
  • Snape/Lupin: 2,111
  • Scorbus: 614

Note the complete lack of f/f pairings in the top ten. Also wtf is up with all this snape crap? After clicking the f/f box, here are the stats:

  1. Drarry: 512
  2. Linny: 443
  3. Ronmione: 353
  4. Ginmione: 292
  5. Hinny: 275
  6. Wolfstar: 256
  7. Pansmione: 238
  8. Hermione/Luna: 167
  9. Jily: 162
  10. Fleur/Hermione: 97

So, um, yeah. The top “f/f” ship is Drarry, and only half the ships in the top ten are actually femslash pairings. Of all the fics in the HP fandom, only about 1/10 are femslash. So then we arrive at the question: why?

Common excuses reasons I hear for having so little femslash:

  • The protagonist is a guy, so it only makes sense that the top pairings include him. Yeah, true, but…they don’t. Seven pairings in the top ten don’t.
  • The fandom is full of straight girls fetishizing gay men. Fetishization is definitely a problem–in every fandom, not just HP. But it also isn’t a good reason for so little femslash. To start, generalizations like this are negative and damage fandom unity, pinning people against each other. Second, if the entire m/m category was fetishized smut for people to masturbate to, this might be the case. But…it’s not. There are thousands of meaningful, in-character m/m fics that people of every sexuality can enjoy, because fanfic isn’t just about sex (though that can be a major factor, and that’s okay, too!). It’s about reimagining canon and seeing your favorite characters face new situations and go on new adventures and fall in love and more. So if we can have non-fetishizing m/m fics, then we should be able to have f/f fics that meet the same criteria.
  • That stupid nonsense where people hate female characters that get in the way of m/m ships. Like??? Femslash solves this??? But so often it’s part of the reason there isn’t any. Think about it. Ginny doesn’t have to be the raging, jealous ex in the Harry/Draco equation. She can date Luna. Simple as that.
  • Femslash is never as well developed because the female characters are two-dimensional. Sure, female characters don’t interact with each other very often in Harry Potter, but in no way are they two-dimensional. Part of the magic of Harry Potter is that JKR develops even her side characters extraordinarily well. If that’s not being conveyed in f/f fanfic, then that’s our challenge–to bring JKR’s beautiful, dynamic characters to life.
  • Straight up sexism. There seems to be this idea that sex and relationships aren’t as meaningful or important if there isn’t a man involved. I don’t think this really needs an explanation–can we all agree that’s just…wrong? Cool? Cool.

Now that we’ve established the issue and rebutted the inhibitors of f/f pairings, let’s look at the reasons we should all contribute to the femslash revolution:

  • To get rid of the stereotype of objectification. Lots of the f/f out there is fetishized rubbish, and it gives sapphic women a bad name (remember when commotion with the lesbian tag? yeah me, too). By creating more realistic, meaningful femslash content, we can start changing those stereotypes and normalizing sapphic relationships. Yay!
  • vAriEty… Let’s make this simple. More pairings, more diversity, more fics, more content, more.
  • Equality, anyone? There’s so much sexism in the world without us contributing to it. Hermione wouldn’t stand for it. Ginny wouldn’t take this sitting down. (funny how those two expressions mean the same thing) Neither should the rest of us.
  • It’s awesome. Like seriously. Writing femslash. Reading femslash. Creating femslash art, aesthetics, headcanons. Viewing femslash art, aesthetics, headcanons. Amazing. 10/10. Would recommend.

Reminder: You don’t have to feel guilty for m/m pairings. My blog title is “Riddikulusly Drarry”–not going to judge. The purpose of this isn’t to keep you from shipping your otp. It’s to bring awareness to the lack of femslash and encourage the creation of more. We’re trying to lift f/f pairings up, not bring m/m down.

So…what now? We make it happen. Here are a few ways you can contribute:

  • Like and reblog this post to spread the word
  • Follow blogs supportive of or devoted to femslash (ie. @hpfemslashweek @femslasharmy @harrypotterfemslash @nymphadoravtonks and @ginnys to name a few) and reply with your personal favorites if ya like!
  • Read some femslash. Either you’ll be lucky and find some of the beautiful gems out there, or you’ll see why we need a revolution. Win-win.
  • Support creators of original femslash content by liking, reblogging, and following
  • Create your own femslash content! Write a fic. Draw some fanart. Make an aesthetic or a photo manip. Create headcanons or write a chat between characters. Write and record a song. Note: I track the tag #owlswithfins and I’d be happy to reblog any original content you create. Submissions are also open if your blog isn’t HP oriented.

It’s a new year, and we have the opportunity to make a difference. Like, reblog, and start femslashing it up!

I just want to tell something to most everyone who felt the need to explain how Liam for ME:A is going to be okay, because you believe.

Straights and/or Whites/Non-Blacks (and/or Men for Sera) saying that Sera and Jacob were written perfect have literally no effect on how I feel about how badly they were written.

Like I’m sorry if it sounds mean, but it is a fucking reality that SHOCK, SURPRISE the straight, white, and/or men liked the marginalized characters a Straight White Man wrote.

Marginalized people are oversensitive to these things, not because we’re petty. But again SHOCK, SURPRISE we are raised in a world where we are constantly pelted with backhanded comments, micro-aggression, and unknowing/unconscious “polite” bigots.

Racism, Homophobia/Lesbophobia, and Misogyny can be subtle, it can be subtext, and it can still fuck you up. It can still be internalized, it can still keep all those bigoted mindsets alive. It can confirm stereotypes, it can validate a bigot without meaning to, it can instill unconscious bias (because humans are fucking weak mentally).

So yeah, good on you for having faith. But I don’t have to have shit. I’m CONCERNED, as a Black Person. I AM CONCERNED.

As someone who has followed Bioware for a while loyally and seen Liam’s writer fail to write sympathetic marginalized character, without some “quirk” and insult on their character. I AM CONCERNED.

As someone who has seen Branka’s and Hespith’s “tragic lesbian love story” written by HIM. As someone who has seen Marjolaine’s and Leliana’s “tragic lesbian love story” written by HIM. As someone who has seen Jacob “Black Stereotype” Taylor written by HIM. Aveline “That Slattern” Vallen written by HIM, and Sera “Crazy, Internalized Racist Lesbian” written by HIM. I AM CONCERNED.

You telling me it’ll be okay, isn’t going to make me suddenly believe a man who still being lauded for his work despite the above, is going to drastically change his writing style after 16 consecutive years of poor creative decisions.

Count of Three

[Aka.: the big bang fic I’m working on]

Summary: Lance and Keith wake up in a cell with no recollection of who they are or how they got here. While it certainly wasn’t ideal, it was something they could deal with - that is, until they found out that their capturers were aliens (actual, real life aliens) that accused Keith of being something called a “Galra” and Lance of being his “Excazcán”. When the aliens decide to pull out torture devices and guns to make them talk, they decide that it is about time to go.

And that’s how they end up making their way across an unfamiliar planet, get chased by the alien police, steal a camel (amongst some other stuff) and accidentally become the leaders of a shady underground gang. At the end of the day it is, according to Lance, “the best date ever”.


Excerpt

“Just. Please stop talking,” the guy responded in a pained tone. He had his eyes closed again and lowered himself back onto the ground. Did he want to go to sleep? If they hadn’t been in this situation, he might have joined him, actually; the idea certainly was tempting with the killer-headache he was sporting. 

But alas, they were in this situation, and if the guy really wanted to go back to sleep then he was shit out of luck. He had a few urgent questions that he needed answers to. Right fucking now.

“No can do, buddy. I need to know who my cellmate is,” he said grimly. 

For a moment the guy didn’t react at all, then he shot up as if someone had thrown freezing water onto him. “We are in a cell?!” he asked with wide eyes. 

“Yep. And we are wearing matching outfits, apparently. Were we going to a convention or something? Are we divers? Astronauts? I don’t recognize what characters we are supposed to be.” The guy didn’t react at all, he just stared at nothingness, seemingly a little dazed. Growing impatient, he snapped his fingers. “Hello? Dude? We are in jail. Mind telling me how we got here? Mamá is going to kill me!”

Finally the other guy’s eyes settled onto him. “Mam- no, nevermind that. How did we end up in jail?!”

“I don’t know, that’s what I was just asking you!”

“Well, I don’t know either!”

Why don’t you know?!”

“I don’t know! I don’t fucking know, okay! Who are you even?!”

“I don’t know!” he yelled back. He had only screamed that because he had needed to scream something - but a wave of dread washed over him when he realized that he really didn’t know. “Fuck,” he whispered, eyes wide. “I don’t know who I am.”

You were nervous at first. When the optometrist told you that you’d need glasses, you worried about how your life would change, from the cosmetic-related insecurities to how it was going to affect your everyday tasks, but once you had gone through the process and picked out the perfect pair, you knew it wasn’t going to be all that bad. It would take some getting used to, but you also gained a sense of self-confidence in accepting it as starting a new chapter of your life. After all, you were still you. You with glasses.

Beside the obvious name change from “Shit Rich College Kids Say” to “Just Some Antifas,” I would like to point out a couple new changes and some things we’d like your help on:

We’ve added a search bar to make it easier to look under certain tags. I’ve also updated our “trigger warnings” list to show all the things we tag - again to make it easier to find stuff or avoid stuff on our blog. It’s still a work in progress and if you need anything else tagged under the list and in the future let us know.

I added a link solely for “What the Fuck is Going On” News. We’ve gotten a lot of positive feedback on it and I want to make it easier for people to go to our blog and stay updated if they want.

“What is Antifa?” is the next thing we’re going to be working on. Currently it’s just filled with placeholders and we’d like your help as we start adding info to it:

We’re going to be adding some basic information and how to get involved but we really want to collect a massive list of antifa collectives in your area with their basic information. We also want to gather a good list of antifa books and if you do zines on the subject matter we’d also like to list those and ways for people to buy your zines as well. So this is where we mainly need your help, if you have any resources that you want listed please do. Our ask box is open as well as our submit box, if you need to add more information. 

wynonna earp 2x06 (or: nicole encourages folks to do drugs)

I’m still not over that being an accurate description of the episode, but on to plot things!

Wynonna’s er, a little bit, y’know: Letting everyone know what’s up was very quickly handled, and what a fantastic use of plot to both a) work with the real-life constraints of Melanie Scrofano being 6 months pregnant at that point b) hint that something is up with this Earp baby

  • Wynonna’s most vulnerable when Nicole finds out by stumbling in, and I adore that all Nicole does is check if Waverly knows and then immediately focuses on the plan for the townsfolk. <3 
  • Dolls finds out and his initial reaction of concern was great but then….takes a turn I’m pretty Meh about? Like, am I supposed to understand that the reason he’s pissy at the end and kills that guy that got blackmailed is because Wynonna’s pregnant by Doc? 
  • In an inverse of the above, Doc’s initial reaction was almost infuriating but that note completely overcame it. Both the fact that he had the forethought to write it in case Wynonna didn’t want to speak to him and the contents of it.
  • Jeremy of course already knew and never brought it up because that would be rude, y’know? 

The ‘This is a team of Soft Goobers’ Alert: Figured I might as well make this a recurring section because I Feel It In My Heart every episode. 

  • Wynonna being all “Hey, you can call me when Tucker’s being a nuisance” to fake!Mercedes, even when she’s dealing with Dolls possibly wanting to make things serious, her pregnancy, the other demons chilling in the triangle, and y’know, the other 66 Revenants. 
  • Nicole and Waverly’s scene where they continue to be the Softest Couple I have ever shipped and very eloquent about said softness
  • “I missed you like, so much” Meanwhile, over in Dolls and Wynonna land we have far less eloquence but also lots of Dolls being soft on Wynonna which I adored until his sudden change in attitude. Legit, I cheered out loud when they kissed and after that I was =(.
  • Dolls reminding Waverly “No cutesy callsigns” 
  • Nicole wants to wake up all the townsfolk! Nicole wants to move people who are outside to safety!! Is looking out for the regular citizens of Purgatory!!! 
  • Wynonna being Impressed with Nicole’s Illegal Tucker-tracking
    • As good of a line that was, I was lowkey hoping for Nicole’s response to be “actually once I had Nedley’s files I filed a very legal warrant” and for Wynonna & Dolls to be bewildered because…procedures?? legality?? since when have they care about that??? 
    • again one of those I appreciate it as a character moment but am currently pretty meh on media showing cops breaking the rules For Good Reasons

All Officer Haught wants to do is her job (and Waverly): For the record, her current Getting Wrecked count is a solid 5.

  • An unexpected level of good Wynonna-Nicole content??
    • Wynonna finally calling Nicole out for her ridiculous googley eyes at Waverly, and also Nicole head-dipping in response instead of having anything snarky to say!!
    • Wynonna bugging Nicole for cases and Nicole continuing to do her paperwork while dryly responding
    • Nicole listening to Wynonna’s instructions to get Tucker and trusting her
  • I liked how that standoff in Waverly’s room played out. Not rad gun skills but Nicole noticing that Poppy (sp?) was holding something that could be used as a weapon and would do so.
  • Probably didn’t expect that Dolls would ever see her naked, but here she is and she has to live with that.

PSA: NEW BLOG FOR HANNIBAL WRITERS!!!

Hannibal Lecter reads books in multiple languages, shouldn’t we too? This is a blog where you will be able to find fics written in any language other than English!

As a writer who writes in Polish, it’s rather hard for me to find audience and I don’t think I’m alone here. So I thought, why not make a blog that will help writers become more visible? There are hundreds of us, people who like writing in our native tongues and are proud of it. We deserve recognition and attention as much as anyone else!

The main goal of this blog is to promote non-English writers, but also to help people who don’t speak English in finding fics they will be able to read and enjoy (that includes translations of English fics!). My hope is also that this community will encourage English writers to ask native speakers for help every time they want to include a foreign quote in their fics. Remember: native speaker is always better than google translate!

I will do my best to search for fics myself, but I will strongly rely on your submissions. Please feel free to submit links to your fics (or any fic written in a language other than English). @this blog when you post a fic on tumblr, so I can find it easily. I’m just one person and as such will not be able to find every fic ever written myself!

Please be aware that I (@hanni-bunny-lecter) am not nearly as good a polyglot as our Hanni, so I can’t be responsible for the content you guys submit to this blog. I will need your help in organizing fics. When you submit, please give me as many informations as you can, so I can properly tag your fic: main pairing, whether it’s an AU or a canon fic, whether it’s fluff or angst, warnings and/or kinks, rating (PG, Mature, Explicit) and, of course, the language (ideally its original AND English name, i.e. Polski/Polish). You can submit links to fics published on any website - AO3, LJ, Dreamwidth, ff.net, tumblr, your personal blog, national fan community sites, anything. I already reblogged my own fics, so you can check their tags and see what info I’ll be needing. You can also check the current tags page (it may change in time to make things more clear).

This blog is a work in progress, so don’t be discouraged if it’s not perfect. It will grow and evolve depending on my abilities and your help.

If anyone’s interested in being a mod, let me know! This is a huuuuge project and I’m afraid it can be too big for just one person!


TL;DR: 1. Here you will be able to find Hannibal fics written in languages other than English (plus translations from English); 2. When you submit fics, please tell me at least the main pairing and the language in which the fic is written; 3. The blog is currently run by one person who will need your help finding all fics :)


PLEASE SIGNAL BOOST THIS POST!

Okay, so I’ve been away from this page for a bit, because I’m too lazy to have a main page, but there are a few things I’d like to address with the recent Supergirl ‘Scandal’.

First off, the Supergirl ‘fandom’ is the nastiest ‘fandom’ I have ever encountered. Please note I am using quotation marks, because if you were a ‘fan’, you wouldn’t be acting like this. I’ve watched the video a few times to see what others saw, and honestly I don’t see it. What I see is a group of people, who have done multiple interviews goofing off, and joking around. That song was NOT planned. Have you ever done something spur of the moment (Of course not, everyone is perfect, right??) I know I can’t be the only one when I say this, but when I am goofing off with my friends I’ve said STUPID things. I’m human. I make mistakes. I regret it, I learn, and I move on. That is what being an adult is. I notice a lot of the fans are young, and while that is nothing to be ashamed of, there is a difference when you’re young, and being older and understanding this. How many people have used the term ‘That is so you know what’, or ‘What a R word.’ FYI that word is just as damaging, but I am sure a ton of people say it. They were having fun, goofing off, and didn’t really think before they spoke. They are human, and make mistakes.

What I have seen in the ‘fandom’ completely disgusts me. I’ve seen death threats (Melissa was found dead in Miami, or Melissa, Chris, and Jeremy were murdered in San Diego) First off, what the fuck is wrong with you people? I’ll be blunt, I may get hate, and that is okay. What they did was unfair, and it was wrong, but it wasn’t done out of malice. Malice is posting things like that, tagging Melissa in a comment about her marriage which frankly is NONE of our business. Who knows what went down on their marriage, but the fact that Blake didn’t move to Vancouver with her, and SHE was the one that filed and requested her last name to be changed speaks volumes to me. There is more to that story than we know, and its none of our business, and tagging her in that is disgusting. It is purposely hurtful, and taking things too far.

Secondly, I keep noticing how Katie McGrath is worshiped and admired, when she laughed too. She threw her head back laughing. Melissa also spoke positively on Supercorp. I understand the hurt, and frustration, but everyone needs to take a step back. None of this was directed towards a person, and honestly, Supercorp ‘fans’ are known to take things too far. Now I am not lumping everyone in this, but I have seen things. Posts about how Katie and Melissa will date, and how she is only with Chris because she is obsessed with Mon- El, or how  Rahul Kohli was treated which is DISGUSTING. He is an ACTOR doing his job. He got hate, and he even stated it got racial, which makes no sense, because that is just as bad as being homophobic. Katie’s brother was even catfished by Supercorp fans, which is INSANE. Who does that?? This is a TV Show. They are not their characters from what I’ve seen each the cast does pretty great things. Whether you want to admit it or not, Melissa is a voice for women, Chris has his charity to end the stigma against mental health. Jeremy also seems to do a lot, and he apologized and is learning from their mistake.

I want to clarify I am not saying you don’t deserve to be upset. No one can take away your feelings, but lashing out the way everyone has been isn’t the answer, nor is it healthy. Take a step back, because lashing out isn’t the answer. The nastiness within the fandom is terrifying. Why can’t everyone just get along?

Tumblr RP Tips - Cutting Your Threads

To be courteous to your fellow followers, it’s a nice gesture to cut your threads when they get too long. This will help prevent cluttering up your dash!

How to reply to Asks.

When someone responds to your ask, it’s better NOT to reblog it. It’s difficult to trim down and keep things neat. 

Instead you have two options:

1) Make a whole new text post with your response!

Example:

The x in the brackets, or whatever symbol you want to use, is where you would insert the link that would take you directly BACK to the ask. This is just a rough format of what I do, so feel free to change up the style and execution! You just need to make sure there’s a link BACK to the ask and a link BACK to your roleplay partner so they will be tagged in their activity feed.

2) Reply directly to the Ask.

Example:

Here is how a reply looks on your dashboard. Click the reply button and it will automatically open a new post for you, like so:

The red circle is usually where it will say the users name replied to 'x’ post. You have the option of leaving it or changing it, depending on your taste.

In the event that the reply gets lost in your dashboard feed, you could either try copy and pasting it from your Activity Feed or through your Tumblr layout by going back to look at the notes.

How to Cut Threads.

This will require you to download XKit, or some other Tumblr extension that allows editable reblogs.

Here’s how it looks:

Here’s how it looks in action:

After clicking the circle icon with the pencil symbol, this will revert your post to the old format that we use to have on Tumblr. 

Typically one would edit a post when it’s on the third reply, like so:

Carefully highlight the items in that area and simply delete, leaving you with a nice post of just one reply from each partner!

I hope this is helpful to my fellow FFXIV Tumblr roleplayers! Please let me know if you have any questions!

So I’ve been working on this one for quite a while, its been done many times before, the whole rewrite of the 100 with your own character. I’m not expecting my version to be any better than anyone else’s but i’m hoping people will enjoy it anyhow. 

I’m going to be going along with the episodes and adding in parts and maybe changing it up a bit as well. I’ve given the ‘reader’ a name just because I needed one for the storyline. 

I really hope people like this and depending on how it goes down i’ll keep writing it along with the seasons for as long as people want to read it. 

If anyone would like to be tagged in the next parts please just let me know.

********

So overall you were having a pretty crappy day. It had started out normal enough, waking in your tiny, cold cell in the Skybox. Now however, it seemed likely that it would end with your death in a large fiery explosion.

You and the other 99 ark delinquents had been marched from your cells first thing this morning, systematically tranquilized and gradually reawakened in a drop ship hurtling towards earth.

From somewhere you could hear Chancellor Jaha explaining what was happening to you all. You weren’t paying attention though too focused on the bone jarring rattling that you were experiencing. Your entire body was shaking in your seat as the ship rocketed back towards earth.

The whole ship was groaning with the effort of re-entering the atmosphere and not breaking into tiny pieces. Across from you a boy floated, enjoying the final moments of zero-g. He was talking to a blonde girl, a girl you recognised as Clarke Griffin. The chief mechanics daughter. You’d seen her a handful of times since she entered the skybox. Mainly because her solitary cell was right next to your own.

“The parachutes are going to deploy. Get back to your seat or die”

Parachutes, parachutes meant almost certain pain. Yeah there it went, the metal of the exodus ship almost screamed in protest as everyone started shouting and shrieking with fear. Cursing you held tight to the seat belts laced around you. Gravity reasserting itself as you were slammed back into your seat, head feeling like it may explode inwards from the pressure.

The floating space walker had vanished, thrown into the side of the ship. Maybe even dead from the impact.

With another groan and horrific impact crash the ship hit the ground, sliding for what seemed forever before coming to a sudden stop. The machines went quiet and for the first time in your life you couldn’t hear any hums from life support machines or engines.

Clarke had unclipped herself and was bending over the spacewalker checking his pulse as the others unclipped and ran down the stairs to the lower levels. You carefully unclipped yourself as well following the main group of teenagers downstairs. Watching as they argued loudly about whether or not to open the door.

The main instigators being the reappeared Clarke Griffin and a man wearing a guard’s uniform. You didn’t recognise him and he seemed older than the 18 year cut off for delinquents in the skybox.

“If the air’s toxic we’re all dead anyway”

He had a point there. “Bellamy!” a dark haired girl appeared. Finally you smiled, Octavia. So the boy she was hugging must be Bellamy. The brother she couldn’t shut up about. Silently you moved carefully through the mass of people getting closer to the front of the group.

You could hear mutterings about Octavia as you got closer. “That’s the girl from under the floor”

“No one has a brother anymore”

“That’s Octavia Blake the girl they found hidden under the floor”

Octavia’s head spun around and you saw the violence in her eyes. Before she could act on it you’d turned and driven your fist into the nose of the boy speaking. His eyes rolled back in his head and he dropped like a stone. All talk stopped as eyes turned to you as you looked over at Octavia. Her eyes widened in wonder as she took a step forward.

“Sawyer”

“O!” she grabbed you as the two of you locked your arms around each other holding tight.

“Octavia?” Bellamy snapped “Who is this?”

It was Clarke who answered him, staring at you like she’d seen a ghost. “That’s Sawyer Kane. Councillor Marcus Kane’s niece”

“Hello to you too Griffin” you glanced at Bellamy and the uniform he was wearing once more. “You never mentioned the almighty Bellamy was one of my uncle’s underlings O”

“He wasn’t anymore…”

“Enough” Bellamy snapped pulling Octavia away from you, he grasped the lever and ignoring Clarke’s shouts pulled it down. The dropship ramp groaned and slowly swung open. Earth lay there in front of you. You were home.

 *******

Predictably the delinquents had gone crazy when allowed off the ship. Racing around, screaming and laughing. Pulling things from the earth and generally living up to the role of renegade teenagers. You however had climbed to the top of the dropship, enjoying the freedom of being able to move your limbs and muscles once more. All you could see from the top was more forest, laying out in front of you like a never ending green carpet.

Below you Clarke was arguing with Wells Jaha about how to find food for the whole camp.

“And how are you two going to carry food for all 100 of us?”

“4” the space walker, Finn, announced grabbing two gangly boys who unfortunately happened to be walking by him at that moment. “Can we go now?”

“Not yet” Clarke looked up catching your eyes “Sawyer?”

“Griffin?”

Clarke sighed “Don’t make me beg Sawyer. Please”

You stared levelly at her for a moment longer before nodding “Fine 5” you jumped from your perch landing easily on your feet in front of Wells.

“Wait if Sawyers going so am I” Octavia announced linking arms with you “Make it 6”

“Hey, O! What the hell are you doing?”

She shrugged off Bellamy pulling you along behind her “going for a walk”

Bellamy glared hard at your back as you passed by him. He disliked you already, not something you could do anything about right now.

“Earth, Sawyer. This is so fucking cool”

“Yeah, awesome” you looked carefully around the woods. You had no idea where you were, what was out here and what the world had left in it. So until you all did, the best thing to do was be cautious. Very cautious.

 *******

You were walking easily over the forest floor, taking point in this group of teenagers. Behind you the others stumbled along tripping over tree roots and multiple other debris. You were close enough that you could hear when the conversation inevitably turned to what you’d all done to end up being thrown in the skybox in the first place.

“I got to know what you two did to get busted” Finn was asking the other two boys. Monty and Jasper just shrugged smiling at each other.

“Sumac is not the only herb in the garden, if you know what I mean”

“Someone forgot to replace what we took”

“Someone has apologised like a thousand times” Monty hissed at Jasper the two of them then continuing to bicker between themselves like an old married couple. Jasper was the one whose stare eventually fell on you curiously.

“So what did the ninja princess up there do? What can Kane’s niece have possibly done to get kicked down here with us criminals?”

You stopped walking at the question. It was always going to have been asked eventually, you’d thought you might have had more time but even so you turned to stare evenly at the group of teenagers behind you. It was Clarke who answered the question. She seemed to have a habit of answering questions not meant for her.

“She killed someone. Murdered her mother”

“What?!” Monty squeaked out now looking terrified.

You simply smiled at them all, turning to keep walking. Octavia running to catch up with you despite Jasper trying to grab her. “Sawyer tell them the truth” she urged.

“Why?” you kept moving helping Octavia over a broken tree. “I did kill her”

“You know that’s not true”

“O listen to me” you looked straight at her. “It’s as much of the truth as any of them need to know” you framed her face with your hands smiling at her “it’s cute that you want to protect me but trust me, I don’t need it”

It was Finn who approached the two of you later on, eyes flicking between the two girls.

“Kane teach you anything about these?” he held out a simple knife.

“Where’d you get that space walker?” he chose not to answer as you took the knife off of him. “Sure you want to risk giving the sharp and pointy weapon to a killer?”

Octavia smacked your arm “Don’t be an ass Sawyer. He’s helping”

Finn continued to stare at you evenly “I don’t think you’re going to hurt us if that’s what you’re implying”

You spun the knife round a few times, easily letting it rotate around your fingers “Not right now I’m not”

Laughing at the confused look on his face you continued onwards. The group straggling out into a vague line as you eventually hit a massive lake. Clarke coming up to you.

“This shouldn’t be here”

“Yet it is”

Clarke glared at you “Sawyer. If you can’t help…”

“Watch it Blondie. I’m here aren’t I? Didn’t even get angry when you announced to the group that I’m a murderer. So choose your words very carefully Griffin before I start to become actually unhelpful”

“You did kill her” she muttered stubbornly.

“And If I can kill my own mother, just think about what I could do to girls with too loose tongues”

You smiled nastily as Clarke’s eyes widened in sudden panic. Before you could say anything else though Jasper whispered from behind you “I fucking love earth”

You turned just in time to see a half clothed Octavia jump into the water, surfacing with a smile as she dripped water over her skin, clothes sticking to her body.

“O, get out” you snapped coming closer to the shore line.

“Come on Sawyer, live a little” she splashed water over at you making you jump away again.

“Yeah come on ninja girl, take your damn clothes off and get in” Jasper was rushing forward when suddenly he froze, voice changing to terrified. “Fuck! Octavia get out of the water”

“What?”

You’d seen it now as well and it was big, swimming straight for Octavia. “Octavia NOW” you were halfway to the edge when with a scream Octavia had been pulled under the water.

“Octavia” without thinking you started pulling clothes off. “Distract it” you ordered Clarke. “Get its attention away from O”

Clarke ran with Finn to start throwing anything they could find into the water. While you waded into a river that had a killer snake in it.

Shit it was cold, you had the knife in your hand that Finn had given you only moments before. Who knew that would be coming in handy so soon afterwards.

“O! OCTAVIA?”

Her head surfaced for a moment and you changed direction as with a shriek the thing seemed to let go of her, Clarke was throwing who knew what into the water and you could see its outline chasing towards the splashing further up the river.

You had a limited amount of time to get Octavia out of the water. Grabbing her shaking arm you pulled her into your body where she clung. Teeth chattering.

“Come on O, move it” you commanded starting back out of the pool of water.

“SAWYER IT’S COMING BACK!” Finn screamed running for the two of you.  

Pushing Octavia as fast as you were able you got her to the shore line and stumbling into Finn’s arms. Dropping down on the stone yourself as the blurry outline of the sea snake vanished once more, denied its meal.

You were breathing hard as Finn having passed Octavia to an incredibly thankful Jasper leant over you.

“You ok?”

“Peachy”

He smiled offering you his hand, clasping his wrist you allowed him to pull you up to your feet. Handing you your still dry clothes. “That was an incredibly brave thing to do for someone you met this morning”

“Who said I met Octavia this morning?” you pulled you shirt back on, shivering from the cold of the water. “And not brave… stupid”

“The girl under the floor… she’s been in the skybox for 2 years. How do you know her?”

“Don’t call her that” you snapped instantly. Eyes clashing with Finn’s. “She has a name”

Finn held his hands up in peace. “How did you meet Octavia?”

You looked carefully at Finn. He seemed genuinely curious and not just trying to get information for bartering purposes.

“Solitary. I met O in solitary. Ironic really, but even the Ark couldn’t keep us alone 24 hours a day. She had the cell next to mine. I looked after her… I look after her”

“Sawyer?” Octavia appeared stepping into your body wrapping her arms around your waist and letting her head lay on your shoulder. You let one hand rest on the back of her head maintaining eye contact with Finn who was watching the pair of you carefully.

“You’re no killer” he mouthed silently before turning back to the others. Unfortunately he had no idea just how wrong he was, just how much of a killer you actually were. None of them did even Octavia.

 ********

“We’ve talked about this all night, someone just needs to hurry up and go first” you snatched the vine off of Finn who had been hesitating for what seemed like forever.

“No, wait…” it was Jasper and you looked at him impatiently. He reached out a hand unsteadily “let me?”

“Fine, go” you handed it over and watched as he took your place at the front.

Finn whispered something to him slapping him on the shoulder once. Jasper nodded and changing his grip once more screamed out “See you on the other side bitches” and took off, the vine held and in what seemed no time he was stood on the other side of the river, jumping about and waving his hands in the air.

You joined the others in celebrating, arm punching the sky as you smiled and threw an arm around Octavia’s shoulders as you waved at Jasper.

“Let’s go Princess your up” Finn shoved the rope at Clarke, who was on the edge of the cliff when something flew past your heads.

You all watched, unable to do anything as a wooden spear lodged itself in Jaspers chest, right under his sternum, he was thrown backwards with the force of the blow, choking on the blood pooling in his mouth. Octavia screamed in your ear as your grip on her tightened.

“JASPER!” Clarke was pulling at the hold Finn had on her as he pushed her to the floor.

“It came from behind us” you whispered to Finn putting Octavia behind you as you glanced back into the forest. “We’re not alone here”

I’m really sorry about the long hiatus but I’m back with more memes. This was actually the idea of my lovely friend Rina from fluffy-rainbows-and-darkness. I’m using my crappy android phone so no hyperlinks sorry. If you were wondering, I actually am playing the game (UmaPri) because I need high quality screenshots to make these memes.

Right now my art style is going through quite a change but I’ll start posting art related stuff soon enough.

UPDATE- RINA JUST SENT ME HERS AND IF SHE POSTS IT GO TO HER BLOG AND CHECK IT OUT IT’S SO BEAUTIFUL.
