i thoroughly enjoy these

always whistling always whirring always buzzing and tapping and moving. lots of really scary things in the past weeks, not a lot of time to slow down. ever thankful for my lovelies @puckfu, @kucala, and @itchystitchies as they help me understand, process, and recover.

gently coming to explore and appreciate the changes in my body. nearly 8 months on hormones and filled with joy in seeing lines become curves and in feeling rough become smooth. growing in confidence as i accept the realities of my womanhood.

the sun is out today and the air is filled with heat and light and movement. grateful to take that all in.

How ‘bout that Book?

And by book, I mean a fic.

Hello all, um, I think I am up to 14 followers now? (internal squee) So yes. Hello all 14 of you and the occasional few random people who might come upon this in your feed as a suggestion.

I read a thing! A fan fic to be exact. And, much to my surprise and joy, I thoroughly enjoyed it. So I thought I might review it. (You’re welcome)

For this one, there are going to be a few extra categories of information since it is a fan fic and all…

Question One: What did I read?

Well, dahlin’, I’d be more than happy to answer that.

I, with my own two, blue eyeballs, read “Hang the Fool” by AlmaMeDuele.

You can find it right here.

Question Two: What Fandom is it for?

I likes me some Overwatch and I have fallen quite a bit in love with the McHanzo ship.

Question Three: What is it about?

These two lovelies falling for each other

And also the reuniting of Overwatch, and Jesse McCree’s back story.

Question Four: Why do you like it so much?

Omigod. This requires a list. Possible spoilers so if you want to read this, skip to the TL;DR.

  • For starters, the pacing in this is amazing. I tend to see a lot of pacing issues in fan fics. Normally things happen entirely too fast and it feels forced.
  • Then there is the detail and the way the characters are portrayed. Their motivations are wonderful. The way everything is just so casual but not is wonderful. Watching (Reading) these two fall in love is wonderful.
  • And then there is Jesse McCree. I have a weak spot for guys who are battling their own demons and man Does McCree have his fair share of demons. It is wonderful. The portrayal of his reactions and his panic attacks are amazing. I could read stuff like that for days. Days.
  • Character development! I am going to be honest. I went into this not expecting much. I used to read fan fic a long time ago and I rarely if ever actually enjoyed them. The ideas were always good but poorly executed. Seeing this much depth and growth within the characters from “Hang the Fool” was truly amazing and I need more. I need it.
  • The conflicts, the imagining of Talon and Reyes’ involvement, the growth of Overwatch, the concern of characters for each other, the human emotions. Seriously, this person needs to be like a published author is they aren’t already. I really love this.

Question Five: How long is it?

About 22 chapters. Long enough that it took me about three days of reading and put my other books on the back burner.

Question Six: Age rating?

I normally don’t add this question to a review but I think that a lot of the McHanzo fics may end up being M (for mature). This one is definitely mature, and not just because of the sex. Events that take place, emotions, reactions, PTSD. All those things make it M.

Question Seven: What would I rate this?

A solid 8 or 9 out of 10. Seriously. Go read this. Read this fic right now. It gave me life. Even if you don’t know or play or care about Overwatch, it stands alone as an awesome story regardless. READ IT.

TL;DR

  1. I read a fan fic called “Hang the Fool”
  2. It is based on the Overwatch, McHanzo fandoms.
  3. It is so good and you should read it. Like stop reading this and go read that.
  4. The pacing, character development, and over all writing is fantastic.
  5. It is M for mature, and I give it a pretty high rating.
  6. GO READ IT

Annnnnnnnnnnnnnnnd because we are all talking about this fandom already…(I know I already did Overwatch, but I don’t care)

And don’t even get me started on WW!Killian. I actually wasn’t too bothered by how they treated his moments in the ep…I thought it was kinda fun and cute…but it’s the thought of him alone after Emma leaves the WW that just guts me. Also, the last paragraph of your post is rife with AU fic possibilities…just sayin’…. :D :D

Haha, here’s some unasked for opinions on that:

Though I thoroughly enjoyed the humor that Colin brought to that role, I think WW!Hook was entirely pointless. It was a cameo for the sake of having a cameo. A moment of humor that could have been otherwise spent on actual plot. It would have made more sense if they’d had Killian as a love interest for Princess Emma, seeing as how that’s what they’ve been in the habit of showing for every AU we’ve seen thus far. They didn’t even have to age him up; they clearly never explained Robin and Nottingham’s peculiar lack of aging, other than like some off-handed comment Regina made I think, so they didn’t need to explain Hook’s either. It would have meshed better with the arc of s6 where we see Emma and Killian’s relationship develop from moving in together, to engagement, to marriage, if we could assume that CS were meant to be, in any world, in any design. Or Hook could have been the one to help Emma and Regina find a way home. No offense to August, but his character isn’t really… important to any of s6. It’s a little wonky, the way they sorta pushed him back into the spotlight for that episode and just that episode.

BUT I’M NOT AN OUAT WRITER SO WHAT DO I KNOW.

Also, heckin’ yeah for the OQ in New York AU. That would have been so much fun. I want those two cheating people out of their money and living like… well, royalty.

All I can think of right now is Bitty with a big dog

That is a concept I thoroughly enjoy. Just Bitty at his home in Georgia, cuddling his best friend who is probably twice his size in his room or something. Or when he leaves for college, his dog running up to him and almost tackling him to the ground. Bitty bringing Jack home and having him meet this big, furry dog and Jack looking at Bitty like “how did you not get crushed”. Bitty and Jack getting a big dog of their own, spending their days off cuddling each other, and the dog laying right besides them in bed.

anonymous asked:

Melly I read that Zayn in a golf cart gif set in his accent and now I would like you to transcribe the whole scene in Zaynglish please. As a matter of fact, is there a way you can go into every fanfic ever and overwrite every Zayn speech and dialogue in Zaynglish? Thanks, you're the best!

Thoughts on 12x20: Season 12 as a Year Long Lesson in Teaching Dean There is an “I” in Team Free Will.

Oh 12x20. I really loved you for so many reasons. All of the parallels between Max and Dean that made my little bi!dean heart nearly explode. The perfect execution of the cell phone as symbol for Dean’s attempts (mostly thwarted) at honest communication. Yet another episode that directly references a revered part of canon in precisely the right way.

But something that I especially adored about this episode was how it made good on writing gestures throughout the season.

Because this has been a season of Dean being as emotionally open as we’ve ever seen him - and yet - how desperately he clings onto being part of a team, a member of a family - how deeply he craves consensus.

The episode thus far that we have seen employ “I” statements without shame is in a horrible context - as he slowly loses himself in “Regarding Dean.” This has been as a season that has given me all. the. feels., but Dean’s pep talk to himself in front of the mirror will forever haunt my dean!girl nightmares, waking me from otherwise peaceful slumber at 3 AM as I worry about my boo.

A/N: I thoroughly enjoyed writing this, it’s hands down the quickest I have ever written anything because I was so into it.

I hope this is a way for whoever may be struggling with this to learn to accept themselves and if you are in a toxic relationship, you can do so much better. You are all beautiful!! Thanks yall! As always thank you to my forever beta @avasmommy224

It was your second week working as an extra on the show Supernatural. Your boyfriend was beyond unsupportive, he always told you that you were never good enough to be an actress. You weren’t skinny enough for this role or too skinny for that role. You would get an offer for a part and as excited as you were to get his opinion, he always had something negative to say. This time it was for a love interest of Dean Winchester’s. You were a vamp that he’d met in a bar a few episodes behind but you slipped out of the bar when you found out that he was a hunter.
