i never know how to tag stuff on here

I know AO3 has no app (AO3 NEEDS NO APP!) but I was thinking if I was an app designer I would create an AO3 filtration app that wouldn’t require your login, it would have its OWN login and it would act like your own personal fanfic butler. We could call it JAO3VIS.

Here are the questions it would ask you:
What fandoms do you want to read?
What tags and ratings within each of those fandoms do you want to read?
What tags, generally, do you never ever want to read? 
What tags will you read regardless of fandom if they’re well done?

Most of this stuff is programmable through AO3’s search function if you know how, but also you could set up a program that would pull all fics uploaded every day and make a set:

Fandom(s) > filtered by tag(s)/ratings you want > filtered by tags you don’t want

Deduping stuff in multiple tags would be a pain but probably a “hide duplicates” function you could run on the title/author fields would solve it. Also you could institute a “prime tag” function where, if a fic was tagged with something you’ve designated “prime”, it would override any “do not want” tags but warn you that there’s a Do Not Want tag on the fic. So if you don’t like pie, but you really love tentacles, it would say “Look, here’s a tentacle fic! Uh, but it also contains pie.” I would absolutely call this the TentaclePie Object. 

The app could also, on a weekly basis, pull the previous week’s “tag(s) you’ll read regardless of fandom” and filter it by number of hits or kudos or some amalgam of the two that could estimate, if not precisely calculate, how well fandom received it (yes I know there are issues with both hits and kudos, if you have a better idea I’m happy to hear it).

So basically you would fill out a survey, and then every day just after midnight you’d get an update with the tags in the fandoms you wanted, with stuff you don’t want pre-filtered out, and once a week you’d get a surprise “This is your trope” package of other fandoms doing your favorite tropes or kinks especially well. And the links would take you to Actual AO3, which is mobile-optimized anyway, so that you could read on AO3, your hits would get registered, and you could login to kudo/comment/bookmark. 

The problem is that I work with databases so I know how to structure the filters, I just don’t know how to code or the best way to pull the fics off AO3 (probably the RSS feed? Maybe you can pull them into Excel?) so I don’t know how to actually make them manifest. Alas. 

(The stats you could gather from this kind of thing would be amazing – most in-demand tag, most popular prime tag, fandom with the most Do Not Want tags….real quantitative stuff.)

its 5 in the morning have a really low quality jpeg of some 20yo giogio

I drew this pic of roger like last year but forgot to post it so I’m doing it now!! I literally can’t even tell if it looks bad anymore… maybe don’t compare it to the real pic too much

Keep reading

psa: want to keep fandom alive?
  • comment on fics (how else will authors know ya’ll are still here, reading?)
  • reblog / rec fics/art/gifs when you really like em (please yell in the tags, i can promise you most of us read EveRY.SINGLe.oNE)
  • go the extra mile if you really like something to leave someone an ask/msg (even if we’ve never talked before I PROMISE you we are super excited to hear from you)
  • if you see well written metas and stuff, reblog and comment, people who write metas love discourse and having people ask or bring up new view points
  • at the very least, leave a note/like so people know you saw it

in efforts to be more engaging, i will be doing this too! (you’ll see me follow/like you as @runningwithscalpels which is my main personal blog, as i can only post and reblog as @fandomflail because tumblr. ilu all 

anonymous asked:

Can you please tell us the story of you and sean? You know, how you met, how you started dating and all that great stuff? I'm sure you've told it a million times and are probably sick of questions like this, I just can't seem to find it on your blog :s

What you’re looking for Nony is right here. It was floating around my “thatseanguyblogs” tag. :)

And c'mon, like I get sick of talking about my Superman. Psh… never! 

rant about stolen art

>goes into the samurai jack tag expecting to see some cool, original stuff

>instead sees a bunch of reposted fanart w/out written permission to share

>am very disappointed

This blog is never, ever going to reblog reposted art unless it has a link to written permission from the original artist to share. Even if it has a link to the original source, it’s not going on here. That’s not proper sourcing!!! You never know the artist’s wishes, and many are uncomfortable w/ their art being shared w/out their consent or knowledge. As a content creator myself, I can understand how frustrating it can be if your art is stolen. And, yes, it is stealing if it is posted w/out the artist’s express knowledge and permission to do so. I’m also against reblogging/posting art sourced from weheartit.com, bc majority of the time it’s stolen work.

That also means that if you notice that I’ve reblogged stolen art here, PLEASE let me know. I’ll take it down right away. I try to be super careful when going through the tag but sometimes I won’t notice in time.

Stealing art is NOT OK! Whether it be fanart, original artwork, a gif, video, whatever, please don’t repost or share work if you know it’s not properly sourced. If you see some art on another site that’s really awesome and you want to share it w/ everyone, do this instead of reposting it w/ a link to the original source:

1. Check to see if the artist has a tumblr account. If they do, chances are their art is posted on their blog. Reblog it from there! Easy!!!

2. If they don’t, send them a message and ask if it’s OK if you can share it on here or other places! If they say yes, make sure to write that you have written permission from the artist to share in the post, and you can put a link to the screenshot of your conversation for proof. Easy!!!

3. If they say no, then DON’T REPOST IT! Enjoy the art on that site, send the link to your friends, or maybe make a post talking about their great art and put a link to their page! This way, you can bring attention to some cool art w/out stealing another’s content. Easy!!!

This post got way longer than intended, but please share this if you can! I see stolen art all the time, not just in the Samurai Jack tag, and it’s pretty upsetting, especially since it’s super easy to share someone’s art w/out stealing it. If you see some cool art but have some suspicions that it’s been stolen or reposted improperly, chances are that you’re right. Don’t take the chance!

Y'all act as though I don't try to interact. Like I don't try to be a part of things but my stuff is always ignored. I've been part of this fandom since the beginning and never got a foot in the door no matter how hard I tried. It's always the same people. Always tagging one another instead of reaching out to smaller blogs.

Here’s the thing here Anon. Nonnie. Anonymous person I can’t properly respond to because you’re, well, on anon.

I wasn’t here at the beginning of the fandom. I didn’t actively get into this fandom until early 2015, almost a full year after the film had come out.

I didn’t know anyone coming in. So you know what I did? I produced content. But not only did I produce content, I reached out. I reached out because no one knew who I was. I came in without a clue and I just started tagging blogs that I noticed or responding to their post so I could start a dialogue. 

How do you think I met the people I did? The people I tag all the the time in posts? For @secondarysushicorps @kingsmanposts and @getinthefuckingjaeger, I found out they were all from a region I have family in through one of their posts and butted into the conversation and now I’ve met Nina in real life and text Kallie and tweet Mira.

I basically made fan edits and commentary for the original @kingsmanhartwin‘s fics until we started talking more and then I fangirled the current owner of the account into being friends with me too when I found out about her original work.

I think I met @elletromil and @sententiousandbellicose around the same time and then that broke some kind of dam and suddenly I was knee deep in new people I hadn’t even noticed on tumblr before, both big and small blogs.

I made friends, and I still have those friends, the “same people” I tag over and over because guess what? I know what they like. I know what they’re interested in. Because we’re friends. And they do the same for me because they know what I like and am interested in.

And you know? I do reach out to smaller blogs, new blogs, whenever I see them on my dash or when I’m browsing the Kingsman tag.

But you can’t expect me or anyone else to constantly be looking.

We do what we can to be accepting, welcoming, and to open dialogue with others, but as I already said, you cannot expect me or anyone to constantly be reaching out.

It’s a two way street. You have to put in the effort to. You can be in a fandom for forever and no one can know who you are and it sucks. I know that. Kingsman was my fourth fandom and the first one that I actually made friends in. But it was also the one that I put the most effort into. 

But I don’t know what to tell you, Nonny. I can’t really say anything more than I’ve already said. On my part, I tag people I know. I reach out to smaller blogs when I see them. I reblog content that I like in the tags and on my dash. I’m sorry if that’s not enough.

How long?
  • Molly: *glances over at Sherlock silently working* Sherlock?
  • Sherlock: Mm?
  • Molly: Remember when you said I'd always counted and you'd always trusted me?
  • Sherlock: *looks up, suddenly interested* Yes.
  • Molly: Well, when you said "always" what did you mean by that?
  • Sherlock: *gaze shifts in confusion* I meant always. How was that not clear.
  • Molly: Yeah but, I mean, from when exactly? How long did it take you to feel that way?
  • Sherlock: *gazes at her silently for a long moment*
  • Molly: *rapidly becoming self conscious*
  • Sherlock: Do you remember the day we met?
  • Molly: Yeah of course.
  • Sherlock: Ok...that day. *goes back to his microscope*
  • Molly: *unsure* That day? That very day? You mean it didn't take you any-
  • Sherlock: *looks over again* It took me no time to see that I could trust you and you'd be someone who would matter to me. Certainly not minutes, and barely seconds. No time at all. When I said always...I meant it.
Writer of the Day #4 28/05/17

The next writer I want to introduce to you is CHELSEA

Holy cannoli, who doesn’t know her amazing stories? She’s the tumblr prompt queen for me, gives out fics like candy and never disappoints in her diversity when it comes to ideas. She has so many ongoing verses it’s hard to decide what’s your favorite. I don’t know how she finds the time to write all these fics! Celsea totally deserves some love from all of you, so show it - in prompts, in reviews, in reblogs… and tag her stuff. She loves tag flailing! 

Tumblr: @daggzandarrows

Twitter: https://twitter.com/ChelseaGentile

FF.net: https://www.fanfiction.net/u/4857219/Daggzandarrows also, she tags her tumblr stuff mostly with ‘oq ff’

Also, here is her Master Fic List, because not everything is on ff.net!

Ships: Writes mainly Outlaw Queen but also Evil Charming and I think I’ve read SQ, RB and lots of other amazing stuff as well.

Favorite completed fic: An Unwelcome Return   ( When Emma and Killian return from the Enchanted Forest, Regina’s world is turned upside down - King Leopold is both alive and in Storybrooke. Told from the perspectives of all those affected by the King’s return. Established OQ, a Leopold instead of Marian alternate universe. )

Favorite WIP: Ok this was SO hard to pick, I can’t believe I am making myself do that. So… I’m going to be sneaky and will give you two recs… one from ff.net and one of her Tumblr verses.

A Different Kind Of Reality ( When Robin meets a young boy, lost and alone in Boston, he can’t help but to aid in getting him home. Once there he meets Henry’s mother, the beautiful Mayor Mills, will he be able to leave this new town knowing that someone such as her exists? OQ/RB Rating may change. )

Sponsor Verse  (Starting with the prompt: “Have you drank all of these bottles in one weekend?!” You can find the rest in the Master Fic List linked above!)

Favorite OS: This one here  (TeenOQ EF AU where Robin asks Regina to run away with him.)

Here it is, this is it! My first and probably last contribute into the Voltron Fandom. I Rarely ever draw fanart when I draw but really wanted to draw something for this series. I am so inlove with Voltron and the Klace ship and I havent even watched the series yet, not a single episode. But I dont have Netflix and I dont know where else I could watch it (safely) Anyway.

I’ve never really been into the Klance or even the Voltron tag on here but I have googled stuff and I found some fanart based on and I assume, around an AU with Galra!Keith and Altean!Lance. I dont know who came up with this AU so I cant credit them for that, if anyone knows PLEASE let me know and I will. Also I have no idea what happens in that AU or what it is like apart from just Altean Lance and Galra Keith, so see this fanart for how you will I guess!

@tyranny-mutt here ya go boiiiiiii. the original one i did i still haven’t finished because fuck i still don’t know how to draw motorbikes or anything really so here’s something i threw together after you called me out today LMAO 

anonymous asked:

I'm trying to write a horror novel and I want to create a creepy atmosphere, but since this is my first time trying to write something like this, I don't know how. Can you give me advice?

Start here, as well as in the horror tag and atmosphere tag. General advice for horrifying/creepy stuff:

  • Fear and suspense thrives on the unknown. Do you play horror games? Think about why and how they work. Anticipation, the unknown, the feeling of being watched or followed (up to and including being chased). I stand firmly by the idea that the unknown is scarier than the known.
  • Jump scares are harder to pull off in writing. Never have I turned a page and yelled in fear at the terrifying line at the top, but perhaps this is a personal thing. I do think jump scares tend not to go over as well in written word than they can in more visual media, though.
  • Pace your reveals. Never give everything away all at once. Ever. Not only can this shatter suspension of disbelief, this can also toe the line of infodumping, and no one enjoys that. Draw out the receipt of information and make the readers work for it: if the revelations come one after another, they have no time to sink in and mean something.
  • Don’t underestimate the readers. Readers are smart. You can be subtle with horror as you can with any other genre. Go too heavy-handed with it, and your horror might come off as comical or cute rather than scary.
  • Word choice is key. You are trying to scare readers using only the words on the page. All of your atmosphere comes from your word choice. Read horror stories and take notes, learn what scares you and why. Descriptions of an eldritch abomination can be made or broken in the decision to use “writhing” instead of “wiggling.”
  • Practice, practice, practice. That is how you get better. No one is guaranteed to hit it out of the park on the first try. Keep trying and don’t give up.


anonymous asked:

I want to have an aesthetic for when school starts but I don't have a high budget. What stores would you recommend to find good staple pieces for a badass aesthetic?

I got you girl cause I’m that broke/cheap person that doesn’t spend more than $8 on a shirt unless it’s to die for 😉😂

-Rainbow: just pay attention to how to wash the clothes
-Forever 21: My favourite store. usually has basic staple items but definitely go through the clearance section because you can find nice cheap stuff there. They’re also good for accessories and makeup is a toss up in the air
-Rue 21: I’ve never actually bought clothes from here so I don’t know about the care and how long the clothes last but they definitely have items that fit the badass aesthetic and the prices look pretty afordable
-Charlotte Russe
-Thrift Store: if you take time to actually search through the racks you can find some really nice items. I’ve even found stuff from F21, Banana Republic, and other pig name brands (some had the tag on still). The only down side is no returns so go in a tank top and leggings so you can try stuff on
-Payless: can be a hit or miss for cheap shoes depending on where you live
-Claire’s: Their accessories aren’t terrible
-Aeropostale: I think they have good jeans… at least that’s what I’ve heard 😅
-Victoria Secrets: if you can invest in a nice bra/get fitted for free just because
-Sears: Their shoes are actually pretty good and you can find stuff like bomber jackets, and they have affordable joggers in the boys/men’s section if you’re into that too
