Sormik week day 6! Woohoo! I’m back. No baby Sormiks this time, but have all the more fluff. This one is for @amarietie/ @tmariea for Storms in Our Blood. Today’s theme is “Lastonbell—Promises/Acceptance”, and although this scene indeed takes place in Elysia and has nothing to do with the Lastonbell promise, I figured the prompt was as good as any to do a marriage proposal. I… I went over the top with the cheesiness, didn’t I? *hides* The layers have fancy names to distract from the ridiculous romance going on here. Like “background panels”, background background”, “fucking rain”, “fucking lightning”, “rainy bits” and “rainy muchs”.
Anyway, I’m sorry this is so rushed, but I hope it gets the idea across just fine! I really really hope you like it, Mari! :,) This is my little thanks for your kind words and deeds for me, and for your Earth Armatus Rose occasionally saving my ass in ToLink, hoho. HAPPY SEVERAL MONTHS LATE BIRTHDAY OR SOMETHING
For everyone else: go read the story, it includes more artistic use of seraphic artes, and more kisses in the rain, if that doesn’t convince you I don’t know what to tell you
uhh i basically remade this blog but i’m back to using it and have unfollowed a bunch of ppl. so i need new blogs to follow, so please reblog or like if you post any of these:
- dishonored 1 - bioshock series - thief - the witcher series - hellblade - uncharted series - fallout new vegas - infamous series - borderlands series - prey i’ll definitely follow if you have a tagging system. thanks!
While I work on putting together the post for my SoCo Summer Challenge, I’m issuing another one! This one will be easy peasy, and has been inspired by my day today.
Have you ever felt so sick that you wanted to just curl up and die? Or are you the kind of person who stubbornly pushes through it and refuses to admit to immune system defeat?
Whichever you are or aren’t, this challenge is for you! It’s seriously going to be so easy, with so little pressure, I hope you’ll all join!
Here’s your guidelines:
1. Don’t have to be following me, but it would be nice.
2. The theme must have to do with being sick and being comforted.
3. Pairing is your choice. Reader insert, OFC, self-insert … RPFs or characters … do you, as long as you’re in the Supernatural category of those actors/characters. As far as ships, the only ones that have ever caught me are SamxRuby and Megstiel. If you want to write other ships, again - do you. I can’t promise I’ll read them but I will add them to the masterlist when things are wrapped up.
4. The theme is being sick. A cold, the flu, worse ailments – whatever you choose. I know here in KS we’re getting into cold and flu season, so that’s where my inspiration is coming from. (I have bronchitis as I sit and type this). I’ll also accept broken bones or other injuries as a kind of sickness, as well as mental health disorders. It’s up to you which person is the sick one and which is the caretaker. Or maybe they’re both sick and take care of each other? You decide!
5. To be added to the initial round of the masterlist, please submit your fic by January 1. If you need an extension, no big deal. I’ll add you when you post. You only need to let me know if you need to drop out of the challenge so I’m not looking for it later.
6. To join, send me an ask– reblogs, comments, and DM’s to enter will be ignored. I’ll reply privately so I’m not clogging up anyone’s dash. Include your pairing and your ailment. I don’t mind doubles for this challenge, so I can’t promise you and another person won’t have the same prompt.
7. The usual: If your fit is >500 words, use the Keep Reading feature; note warnings appropriately; tag me in your A/N with #NicsSickieChallenge in the first five tags at the bottom of the post.
There you have it! Remember, this is low pressure, you only need to let me know if you want to drop out. And the deadline? Really more of a guideline. Looking forward to your entries! And yes, I’ll be posting one too! Tags under the cut for possible interest or signal boosting.
You know, the thing is… I actually love Dean to pieces. I know it probably doesn’t seem like it at times, and sometimes I need to remind myself of that, but I really do love him.
And if things were switched, and the narrative of the show heavily focussed on Sam’s POV instead; if the majority of fans/fandom took Sam’s side on everything, constantly justifying everything he ever did, while hating Dean for doing those same things… then I would probably defend Dean with the same passion and anger that I do for Sam.
But that’s not the way things are, at least, not in my 3-year experience. The reason I don’t make many posts about Dean feels or defend his perspective or his actions, is because I don’t need to. There are millions of other people doing that already. Everybody knows why Dean does the things he does - the show focusses on his point of view, and his emotional state almost all of the time.
If I could scroll through the Sam tag after an episode has aired and, like the Dean tag, not find it clogged with hateful comments, I wouln’t feel the need to scream when I talk about Supernatural. But I can’t.
If Sam had multiple complex relationships with other characters, whose relationship was primarily with him instead of Dean, I wouldn’t roll my eyes every time a new character is introduced and gets friendly with Dean. But he doesn’t.
If there was an important character (besides a manipulative demon) who took Sam’s side, and called Dean out on his mistakes/assholery, I wouldn’t feel such a strong need to do that for him. But there isn’t.
If people gave Sam compliments that weren’t so backhanded as “You’re a freak, but you’re not dangerous” and “The only person who screwed up more than you is me.” I wouldn’t be so bitter about the few ‘positive’ Sam interactions that we get. But they don’t.
If Sam wasn’t villified for doing good, healthy things, like leaving an abusive household to pursue an education, or setting boundaries in their relationship, or trying to move on and build a life for himself (like. they. agreed. to. fucking. do.), then I wouldn’t be so damn bitter. But he is.
If you’re reading this, hi my name is Lauren. You might know me, you might not. Either way, I have decided in the wake of DDN stepping down via tumblr AND with the blessing of those two ladies, I’m starting DDCN! Wow, take a look around, so blank and and not very organized (I’m being funny, don’t mind me).
Starting with Alex and following with Laura and Nadine, I have admired them all greatly for always keeping everyone updated in everything Darren. It broke my heart to see them all go, but I do understand at the same time why they did what they did. I hope to somehow fill their shoes by doing MY best to keep you all updated on everything Darren now.
Speaking of doing my best, please bear with me while I try to get my footing with all of this. It has been a long time since I have run any kind of fan/news site so I do apologize if things get confusing for a minute. I promise you a tag system and anything else you will find useful will all be set up, but like I said, I just need a hot minute.
Just like the people before me, I do have a job and other life obligations so there might be times when I can’t post things right away but as soon as I can, it will be done. If you ever find something that the blog hasn’t posted and you want me to be aware of it, please tag me (I will check dailydcrissnews)! You can also message me if you need to ask me anything. I would prefer things to not be anonymous because I don’t want to clog people’s dashes with asks, but I’ll still do my best to answer you either way!
With all of that being said, I hope you guys end up liking the blog. I have been a Darren fan for many years and tumblr has always been the best and easiest way for me to keep up on everything he is doing, so I can only hope this blog will help a lot of you when you’re in need to keep up with him and all of his projects too :)
PS - I’m not going to make a twitter because as some of you know, Laura and Nadine are going to still be operating DDN that way (click here if you’re not following that) so we’re going to be affiliates! Yay! Just keep following them if you want Darren news on the twitter front :)
my dash has been real slow lately and i really want other people to scream about victuuri/yoi/sports anime with so please reblog/like if you post any of the following and i will most likely follow you:
yuri on ice (victuuri, yuuri katsuki, every character basically)
Hi! Cinna here. Since some bloggers are spamming the tag, submit your posts to me or tag me in them so I can reblog it on my blog and give it the exposure you need! Even though I’m not the most popular blog, I’ll do my best to boost your content given that the tags are so clogged up with shit right now.
I recommend every other Otayuri blog to do the same!
hey so i’ve had this ndrv3 idol au in the works for a lil while!! i decided that i would put it on tumblr because i haven’t been using tungle recently and i need 2 provide Some content 2 my followers other than.. idfk why you follow me
All posts concerning this au on my blog will be tagged as ‘#ndrv3 idol au’ !!
As context, this au follows a similar plot to the game ‘Ensemble Stars’, in the sense that they’re all at a school where they train to become idols; you don’t need to know anything about enstars to follow this au, though!
Here are the units (i’ll provide more info on them in other posts so as to not clog up your dash with a super long post)!! I tried putting characters that you don’t usually see with each other together, but units interact with each other a LOT so don’t worry if your favs aren’t together!
“The unit that hopes to create a miracle!” Name lit means ‘miracle’ Consists of Kaede (leader), Tenko, and Momota
“The unit brimming of magic and mystery!” Consists of Ouma (leader), Himiko and Amami
“The unit full of dignity and class!” Consists of Tojo (leader), Shinguji and Saihara
“The unit that will keep you on your toes!” Name is a pun on ‘two’ and the instrument ‘tonette’ Consists of Hoshi (leader) and Gonta
“The unit with whom you’re sure to fall in love with!”
Name is a Norwegian word that describes the feeling of falling in love
Consists of Shirogane (leader), Harukawa, and Iruma
“The unit whose aim is to make you smile!” Kiibo’s a human in this au Consists of Angie (leader) and Kiibo
I hate going into “the fosters” tag because 90% of it is people hating on Brandon?????? WITH NO REAL JUSTIFICATION???? Being “annoying” isn’t a real reason, and lets not forget the fact that he’s not the most annoying on this show. Literally every single character, even the moms have done something stupid and annoying, but Brandon is the only one that gets hate??????????? He’s amazing, and he loves his family so much, and all of these haters just need a reason to hate him because they don’t want him with Callie, and that’s literally the reason, so they make up some bs excuses, which is ridiculous. None of these people deserve a character as amazing and pure as Brandon, honestly. But they do need to eff off and stop clogging up the tag with that crap, I just want to fine nice gifs lovely creators make and yet I can’t because all y'all gross ass hating. SO eff off
Okay but can shitklance people stop tagging klance in their fics?
I understand that you want everyone possible to see your work but you need to understand that not everyone that ships klance ships she.ith or shitklance. When people look for klance, they’re looking for klance.
Again, not everyone likes the same shit you do and a lot of people in the fandom are uncomfortable and triggered by it so please just tag what it is and stop clogging up the klance tag.
No what, this goes for all shitladin fic writers too. People that want to read your stuff will find it. Stop tagging klance when it’s not
-@discourse, hey, I know it’s not perfect, but for what it is, I’m freakin loving it.
-The second episode A Plot was obviously funky and I really wish they didn’t go there writing-wise. The title scared the heck out of me when I first read it. But that’s its own thing and I guess it’s a part of the Esports experience the writers wanted to tell so I’m not gonna shit on the show in general just for that. Upon re-watch I realized that the overall point is actually pretty okay, but I knew it was gonna piss people off. I wasn’t into it the first time but really liked it the second? idk. Take it or leave it. Just don’t give up hope because the next episode’s great.
-I will say that Kamal still wins 0.5 redemption points for me at the end of 2. I get that it’s about him being the kid of the team but like if it’s going to keep going in this format of addressing one character’s baggage at a time then this was a bad example to start with.
-B Plot, however, super rad.
-ok moving on
-you fuckers were right about the bong and i dont think thatll ever not be weird to watch
-I could’ve sworn to heck that Ashlex would’ve been endgame from hints in Episodes 1 and 2?? But now I have no idea??
-honestly boy thinks its a date and shows up in the Frenchiest hobo garb he’s got what a spiffy floof
-I’m still waiting on the inevitable Rylex roommate origin story. You can’t tell me they’re not going to give us these married idiots out of the void and expect we won’t want that sick fluffy backstory. They hired a young Ryland actor. Just. Give it to us.
-Can I…….protect Sam forever
-Honestly! If you’re doing that formulaic writing then episode 3 is how you do it! You introduce a bunch of assholes who hate each other and by the end your audience just wants to hug all of them! Let me hug Sam!!!!
-”I signed it from both of us” jesus christ are you hearing this
