i wanted to try aus but i had no ideas

Inktober 17 - graceful. Decided to bring back this old heist au idea I had. Widowmaker is team Talon’s graceful thief! Figure I try to come up with an idea for her thief/burglar outfit. Didn’t want to stray too far from her original design as I currently want to have the heroes keep their abilities/powers to a certain extent. (I can never decide if I want her hair the same length as her Talon skin or if I should keep it the original length. Ah well!)

Victor Nikiforov as Howl~

I was watching Howl’s moving castle for the hundredth time again this weekend and I couldn’t stop thinking about Victor when I saw Howl >w< so this happened when I realized how much I wanted to draw Vitya with long hair as well ♥ ゜・。。・

i honestly cant comprehend it when people say that they dont ship Jake and Amy when they are like such literal One True Pairing material like??

- slowburn, mutual pining 

- such a soft naturally developed relationship that went from partnerts at work to partners in life and their dating just made it so much richer

- the “i know youre dating another guy and i dont want to make this awkward but i just had to let you know that i really like you but dont worry i wont bother you about it”

- literal canon fake dating au

- when they start dating they try to hide it from thieir friends work family trope but they literally fail in a day

- the universe seems to tell us this is a bad idea but you know what fuck that noise i wanna be with you

- they literally accidentally kill a man by making out at their 1st official day of being a couple like?? get you an otp who can top that

- “theres no one elses opinion that matters more to me” “he makes me laugh”

- they were friends before they started dating!! and they remained silly competitive friends even after they became a couple!!

- no “now that were dating i suddenly realized you have flaws and i dont want this anymore” drama

- they literally asked for their work dads approval 

- like literally no unnecessary drama they fight a few times but none of it is ever superficial or due to bad communication?

- they literally flirt all the time and have their own silly puns and eyeroll eachother but never make the other feel uncomfortable??

- they support each other and are very attentive to the others interests? they try to become involved in things that the other likes just to make them happy??

- “i know that youre dating someone else but im here for you as a friend and i want to see you happy”


for @joyfire-week (belatedly, oops), a mash up of “no capes AU” and “royalty” prompts. 

I wanted to try something different than the European royalty-style that I’m used to, especially since Kori isn’t from any Earth nation. So we have Mughal princess Kori (thank you for suggesting the reference, @ileliberte :D), Ming dynasty Jason (calling on the idea that Lady Shiva is his mom if you want to), and Renaissance Roy, with the boys as… merchants? mercenaries? pirates? …outlaws? Up to you. :)

I initially had Jason in British-ish get up as well (which doesn’t preclude him being of chinese descent) but i decided i wanted them all to be from places distant to each other. Here’s jay’s renfest get-up for the curious:


Game of Thrones Modern AU

This is my first try in making GoT collages.
I know they’re kinda crappy, but anyway

I had an idea of making a story where GoT houses are competing business companies(I dunno whether smb thought about it before, but I think it’d be really cool). So this is just the “demo” version of what I was planning to do :D
I wanted to add Olenna as the head of the “Tyrell” company, and Tywin as the head of the “Lannister” company, but I guess I’ll do it a little bit later.

Okay, maybe not quite, but let’s just say he had some reservations about bringing Derek and Stiles to the Northern California Alpha Symposium as his guests. He was willing to take a majority of the blame, but he just wishes someone (coughLYDIAcough) would have stepped in and straightened this out before things got out of hand.

Derek’s not that excited about spending three days at a conference getting propositioned by every Alpha with a single pack member. Stiles has a plan to make it stop.

It might be a great plan…if only Derek weren’t head over heels in love with him.

It might be an even better plan if someone at the conference didn’t have a vested interest in Derek staying single.

“Oh, and you’re the Hales!” the host exclaims when Stiles slides the sign-up sheet back. “Or, Hale and Stilinski, I guess. For now.” She gives them a conspiratorial wink. “I have to say, we are just pleased as punch to see an adorable couple like you attending!”

Stiles tosses an arm familiarly around Derek’s shoulders despite all the bags hanging off them, and gives him a squeeze. “I know! We’re pretty much the cutest. Right, honey?” He shoots his Alpha a shit-eating grin.

Derek bares his teeth in what’s probably supposed to be a smile, except that it isn’t, in much the same way that they are supposed to be a couple, but aren’t.

Then, Derek’s betas come up with an amazing plan to get Derek an emissary. Any Alpha’s dream come true.

And it will be, if Derek can juggle his responsibilities as an Alpha, judgement, guilt, and roughly a metric fuckton of self-loathing and doubt about whether he’s good enough for a beautiful thing like Stiles.

Stiles starts looking around, like there’s someone who’ll rescue him from this painfully awkward situation and Derek can’t blame him. All he can think is this is some kind of elaborate prank Laura is playing on him after she’d found his pile of Fangboy back copies last month.

Or, the one where Derek has to marry a human to save Clawbook and it turns out to be Stiles. He’s completely doomed.

  “Stiles, come on! It’ll be fun,” Scott said. “You can’t deny that seven days in the Caribbean on a cruise ship full of hot, single werewolves won’t be a good time.”

 “Maybe for you,” Stiles said. “Because you’re tan and have a six pack. No one is going to talk to me at all. Also, fun fact: I’m not even a werewolf.”

 “You don’t have to be a werewolf to come,” Scott said. “You just have to be twenty-one so you can drink. Or so hot guys can buy you drinks,” he added, raising his eyebrows suggestively.

 “No, thanks,” Stiles said, shrugging. “Go on without me, just send postcards with all the hot guys you meet.”

 “They’re stopping in Cozumel,” Scott said. “It says here that you can swim with dolphins.”

 “Did you say we could swim with dolphins?” Stiles asked, curiously. “Like the ones that do tricks at Seaworld?”

 “That’s what swimming is,” Scott said, eyes gleaming.  

 “When do we leave?” Stiles asked.

Or the one where Scott convinces Stiles to go on a werewolf singles cruise. Stiles is really only going for the dolphins. Until he meets Derek.

Author’s Note: Thank you so much for requesting! I had so much fun writing this scenario, I hope you enjoy!

xoxo Sara

All your life, you were told to never get any tattoos, and you always wondered why you weren’t allowed to. You had loved the idea of ink on your skin to commemorate meaningful things in your life, but your mom had always convinced you otherwise.

You had only found out the reason why when you were older; when you had confronted your mom about a little heart that appeared on your skin while you were in school. You felt no pain while it was appearing, but you watched it appear before your eyes, and no matter how much you attempted to scratch it off,  it didn’t wash away.

Just Pretend

Summary: Stiles tells his dad he has a boyfriend. The problem is, he doesn’t actually have one.

Notes: Written for @the-darkhunter, who wanted #7 from this list. (On AO3)

The only warning Derek gets is Stiles hissing, “Be cool,” in his ear.

And that doesn’t really tell him what he’s actually supposed to do, but he starts to get an idea when Stiles grabs his hand, twining their fingers together. Then he calls out, “Dad!” brightly, and Derek realizes that the Sheriff is walking over.

“Hello,” the Sheriff says, looking directly at Derek. “You must be Derek Hale, I’ve heard so much about you.” He cocks an eyebrow. “Haven’t had you over for dinner though, why might that be?”

He says it in an offhand, friendly sort of way, but it immediately puts Derek on edge. It doesn’t help that he doesn’t know what the hell the Sheriff is talking about.

You don’t know anything about your soulmate until you are fifteen and that’s when the first visions start. Sometimes you may hear what your soulmate does, other times you get a view into what they are seeing. The first thing Lance ever heard from his soulmate was heavy rock music blaring in his head while he was in the middle of class. Did his soulmate not go to school or something?

Over the years, he’d gotten used to the random things popping in his head. He’d learned that his soulmate had a friend who acted somewhat like a dad, his soulmate’s name was Keith, he didn’t think he had actual parents.

The first time it happened, Lance was sixteen. He hadn’t been expecting it and was hanging out with Hunk when suddenly he was watching a boy get shot. It wasn’t long, but he had enough time to see the guy with the gun turn towards him. Lance couldn’t sleep for days after that, until he heard the Keith’s friend asking him what he was doing that weekend and he realized his soulmate wasn’t going to die.

It didn’t stop after that though and Lance kept seeing the most horrific of things after that. He watched people die and he watched torture. He even watched what seemed to be a kid getting abused. It got to the point that Lance stared at a piece of paper that said “Are you okay?” for the whole night. The next day he made Hunk ask him the question over and over. There was no way his soulmate could have missed that message.

However, it seems the message passed by his soulmate completely. He didn’t see anything from him for a few days and when he did, he could hear him crying to his friend. “What if he’s hurt? What if he has cancer? What if I never hear from him again?” It made some sense, Lance had just watched a guy get stabbed from his roommate. It’s what made him finally try to contact him.

Once he was nineteen, it all finally came together. You never knew when you would meet your soulmate, you just always had to be watching out. However, Lance got lucky. He’d just entered Lux, a coffee shop near his school, with Hunk when his vision went a little hazy and he watched the same sign outside in front of his face. His head whipped towards the door, a distant sound of Hunk asking if he was okay.

He knew who his soulmate was the moment he laid eyes on him, of course he did. “What the fuck is wrong with you?” he demanded as he stormed up to the two guys who entered the restaurant.

“What?” That was definitely not his soulmate’s voice. That was definitely Keith’s friends voice. He turned slowly to the other male of the duo. His soulmate had a mullet. A mullet. What had Lance done to deserve this in his life?

“What the hell is wrong with you?” He whirls on the other.

“What is your problem? Shiro, is this a joke?”

“You’ve watched countless people die and you want to act like that’s normal!” It had gone silent in the coffee shop and Hunk had gotten up to try to quiet Lance.

“What are you talking about? I have not! And you’re the one who everyone keeps asking if they’re okay!”

“That was for you!”

After that day Lance learned that Keith Kogan just really enjoyed odd horror movies. Really liked them. Lance was just really happy his soulmate wasn’t in a gang or murdering people on the weekends.

This came about from watching Sense 8 and thinking about a soulmate au based off the idea of sharing your life that way. I don’t know, I just wanted soulmates who thought the other was dying until they actually met. 

Yoga Au

Person A is a yoga instructor for extra money and because it relaxes them. Their class is really popular, so they end up having to teach partner yoga simply because of lack of space.

Person B is a business person, or some job where they overwork themselves or have lots of paperwork, and a friend forces them to sign up for yoga class because of how stressed they are.

Person B was only going to appease their friend at first, but hot damn that instructor is fine, so they end up signing up to take the class regularly with that instructor. Well, they end up being the most experienced student in the class.

Remember how Person A has to do partner yoga? There’s an odd amount of students, and it’s easier to show off the position if they had a partner. So they choose the most experienced student in the class. They fact that the most experienced student is also really fucking cute has nothing to do with it.

So now it’s Person A trying to demonstrate with a flustered Person B who keeps flubbing it and landing in compromising positions with their super cute teacher.

Idk I just really want one of these.

The pile of work standing on your desk earns a groan from you, your head pounding from the long evening waiting for you.

Your eyes switch from the article you’ve been trying to get done, to the clock that marks exactly half an hour since the irritating disturbance had started. And from a scale of one to ten of how murderous your thoughts are, you’re pretty sure you’re hovering above an unhealthy fourteen.

You often wonder how strangely things work out in life, astonished by how the universe likes to carefully craft satirical situations to shake up the insignificant human existence. However, you’re not exactly as amused -heck, you’re even sure the deities love messing with you, trapping you in a tiny work space with your one and only rival from high school.

Luke Hemmings, always the charmer and still undoubtedly just as obnoxious as you remember him, just had to end up in the cubicle right across from yours. And although you’ve had a much-appreciated break from his gracing company during college, you’re still astounded at the cruelty of fate to pair you up with him.

Ok consider soulmate au(any you want). Blackwatch! Genji refuses to be with his soulmate, because of his self loathing. So soulmate is trying to slowly get him out of his shell? Sorry if my idea is too weird, I love your blog!

Mmmmm I love soulmate AUs. This is not weird at all! Here’s the one I’ll go with: When your soulmate gets an injury, the scar shows up on your body. However, the scars on your body can go away if your soulmate kisses them.

It wasn’t hard to find out that Genji was your soulmate. You both had matching scars completely littering your body. You were absolutely shocked. You remember being scar free for a majority of your life so far, then one night you watched in horror as mark after mark began to appear all in one instance. You screamed and you cried and you prayed that your soulmate was alright. You were relieved to see that he was still alive, but your heart broke at the sight of him. He was unlike anything you had ever seen before. Part man, part machine. You could only wonder what happened to put him in this state. Not that you could find out. As soon as he saw you, he gasped in shock before turning away and becoming very cold and distant. 

He couldn’t stand the sight of you. It only reminded him of his situation and it sent him spiraling back into intense self hatred. But, you’ve come to wear your scars with pride. You made no effort to cover them up, trying to show Genji that his appearance has no bearing on your love for him. 

Still, Genji felt terrible. It was his fault that such a wonderful person had to bear his burdens like that. He didn’t want you getting any closer to him, but every time he saw you he would kiss a different scar, breathing a soft sigh of relief as each one vanished. This went on for awhile until you were completely free of any marks. The change was remarkable, but you couldn’t help but feel a little sad. With the marks gone, Genji was left to deal with his injuries alone. 

Genji demanded that you leave. He knew that being a member of Blackwatch would inflict more wounds upon him and he did not want to witness his mistakes make an effect on you anymore. But you were firm with your decision to stay by his side. 

So this process continued. Genji would avoid you, only coming by to kiss your scars away, then leaving again. You admit, you enjoyed his kisses. He was always so soft and gentle with you, treating you like fine China. It was clear that you meant the world to him. You just wish that Genji would stop blaming himself for everything

The process is very slow. It takes several months of patience before Genji finally breaks down and accepts to have you as his partner. You hold him tight, assuring him that things will get better for the both of you. He agrees with some apprehension, admitting that he is glad you came when you did. He needs you now more than ever.

fire-kyatto  asked:

Hi there! So I was wondering if you had any tips on advertising/getting the word about your creation like a comic or ask page? I wanted to try to make an Sonic Au page but I have no idea how to start ^^;

I’m afraid I’m not really great at self-promotion stuff… when I got started with Sonic fancomic stuff in 2006-7 the scene was different; things were much more centralized around a handful of fansites (Sonic Verse Team, the MFZ, Fireball20XL, The Middle Ground, etc.) instead of the diaspora we have now on all-purpose sites like Tumblr, Youtube, Twitter, and DeviantART. I started uploading on DA, got onto the Middle Ground staff, and the rest mostly happened on its own. When I started on DA there were very few Sonic fancomics there, and it was easier to get noticed fast. I have seen some trends over the years though, and I can share my observations on that.

I subscribe to the “if you build it, they will come” strategy, where consistency and quality do most of the work. It’s slow, but builds a loyal readership. That being said, a strong start can do a lot for you. Open up with a good chunk of content posted, with a buffer built up so you can post steadily right out of the gate. This will make it so anybody wandering by will actually have something to dig their teeth into, and give them the sense that they can expect more if they subscribe. Also, images are your friend. If your content is mostly text-based, commission someone to make some art for your page, as it’s SO MUCH EASIER to attract attention with pretty pictures than fancy words. Especially since you’re doing an AU, make sure you have very solid “about” and “archive” sections, so people know what they’re getting into right off the bat. Nothing is more annoying than a cool fan project with a flashy site… that you can’t navigate well. Also, don’t be afraid to link and tag your stuff! I’m terrible at this myself, but especially starting out, effective tagging of your work maybe the only way people can find you. Fan work benefits enormously from this, as the characters’ names are constantly being searched by fans. 

For direct self-promotion, if the page doesn’t get off the ground on its own, you could try submitting to fan spotlight sections at community news outlets like TSSZ and The Sonic Stadium, as well as some Youtube channels (Tails Channel is all I got off the top of my head, I’m bad a youtube sorry). If there’s any forums you’re active/trusted in, hop on there and make a thread. Lots of forums often have open threads for newcomers, too. God, are fan-forums still a thing really? Is it all Discord groups now?? When did I get so old??? 

Once you get going, you can also politely ask community members you like if they’d be willing to reblog or plug some of your content, or if they’d be interested in doing a collaboration with you. I recommend collaboration over just asking for reblogs. If you’ve got money to burn, commissioning artists to draw your AU character versions is also a great way to get some attention, and also build professional rapport. 

On a less-fun note, also think about the actual theme of your project. If it’s focused on a niche element of the canon or is primarily focused around original characters, it’s going to be harder to attract readers. I’m not necessarily saying you should change what you’re doing, just to be aware of it when you’re going in so it’s not an unpleasant surprise later (I lucked out with GOTF because even though it’s got a strange premise it’s still got Sonic front and center for most of the story… I didn’t realize how much this helped until years after I started).

Of course, after all this, I’ll heartily warn you that starting a fan-project with attention as your main priority is a recipe for pain. I’m pretty chill about pageviews and subscriber counts, and I still end up hating myself sometimes because I’m not the Cool New Thing and I never will be. Make sure you’re doing it for the love of the idea and the process, because that’s what’ll keep you going in the long run!

Guardians of the Moon and Sun

It was incredibly dark, but it was also amazingly beautiful. Its endlessness excited humans, sparked curiosities, and inspired countless ideas in tiny, insignificant minds. But it was also all very overwhelming; too real, too much, too difficult to fully grasp. It was cosmic space. Billions of stars illuminated the darkness surrounding them. Rays of lights shoot through vast expanses. Bountiful energies floated, formed, and encircled rich galaxies.

In the loneliness of the deep dark, a large temple stood erect, glowing ethereally from its moon bound material. Its cool blue and hot magenta colors clashed, while simultaneously thriving off one another. Sasuke Uchiha, a boy of many talents and sheer intelligence, stood silently on guard before the entryway of the temple. He was simply minuscule in comparison, yet he was pragmatic, distant and cold as he appeared.

Floating nearby is no other than Naruto Uzumaki, and like always, far from attending his duty in the choice of pestering the Guardian of the Moon. Naruto, like his appearance suggested, was a big, fiery, ball of brightness and was a complete loudmouth. He, of course, had a wide, brilliant smile that Sasuke found dreadfully annoyed by and unaccustomed to. Sasuke has lost count of how much time the brat has visited the area, and once again could not wait for him to leave.

Naruto was in tight arm lock on top of a compressed cloud of stardust that assisted on his travel. He moved quite unsteady, and it wobbled over slowly. Sasuke rolled his eyes at the look of utter stupidity and unprofessionalism. After tremendous effort and unaccounted grunts and swears, Naruto finally reached the steps leading to the temple. He dramatically skipped up the stairs with his arms swinging back and forth and stopped to a halt when he reached the landing.

“Hey, Sasuke, I found some really cool black holes a couple thousand light-years away! Wanna go see it? My cloud could carry us both!” Naruto exclaimed excitedly; his eyes shining in anticipation for Sasuke’s positive answer. Of course, it never came, not only would Sasuke never offer a positive answer, he would strongly disapprove on a positive attitude. Sasuke simply ignored his counterpart and stared straight ahead into darkness.

“Come’on…” Naruto whined, “It’s so boring here. Talk to me. You are literally the only person here that is my age. Everyone else is old or wrinkly or scary!” Naruto pouted, “Don’t you ever get tired of standing here guarding this door?” Naruto asked as he leaned against the tall pillars surrounding the temple.

“That is my job, idiot.” Sasuke stated, still unwilling to look at Naruto.

“Why do you have to be such a goody, goody two-shoes princess? Doing something different wouldn’t hurt anybody.”

“I take my work very seriously, whereas you should too,” Sasuke scorned as he looked Naruto up and down, “Guardian of the Sun.” Sasuke addressed. “Go back to your post, as far away from me as possible.”

“Stop being so stubborn, you stupid butthead!” Naruto shouted from the top of his lungs, face brimming red from frustration and irritation.

“Nice comeback.” Sasuke muttered sarcastically. He rolled his eyes and sneered at Naruto’s child-like behavior.

Naruto folded his arms; he flopped to the ground and crossed his legs. Sasuke constantly tried to push Naruto away; he has never encountered someone at such wild, boisterous, and intense caliber. It was unfamiliar and exhausting, yet surprisingly refreshing.

“Look,” Sasuke started, “You’ve been coming here, always non-stop talking about these ‘fun, exciting adventures,’ but they are all extremely absurd and mundane.”

“You’re one to talk! You’ve been here for how many centuries? Standing here like a pole. Is that all you want to do for the rest of eternity?!” Naruto retorted, quite flustered.

“That is part of the job description; it’s exactly what we signed up for when we became guardians, moron”

“It’s not like the temple will move anywhere when we’re gone for a couple of minutes.”

“Then what the hell do you suggest that is neither dull nor pointless?”

Naruto paused, and placed his fingers under his chin, thinking silently for once. He hummed, trying to come up with the perfect idea for the pretentious prick before him. While looking around at the endless expanse of cosmic space, he had the best idea. “For a start,” Naruto began as he grabbed Sasuke’s hand and together hauled off down the stairs.
