i was trying to describe you


An Anon requested Reylo Burlesque Drabble (song is You Know What I mean by Cults https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UXeLGCxJwhw)


It’s not enough that Kylo made partner six months ago.

It’s not enough that he can’t remember the last weekend he had off.

Apparently, it’s not even enough that Kylo’s personally logged in over twenty hours this week on this client. No, obviously, none of that commitment matters because he’s been requested to provide the night’s entertainment for Mr. Snoke, to act like a first-year lemming. To sacrifice and serve as a powerful man’s personal concierge in a city that Kylo knows little to nothing about since he’s always laboring while so rarely enjoying any sort of fruiting.

Wedged under anybody else’s thumb was a position that didn’t suit Kylo Ren one bit, and he jerked his earpiece off with a groan.

Cursing under his breath, he yanked his tie loose to alleviate the pressure tightening around his jugular, but it was no good. It wasn’t his neck that he longed to lay his hands on, and so Kylo directed his fingers back through his hair. Messing up the perfectly gelled dark strands until a few hung over his brow, and even that upset him. No matter what he did, there wasn’t enough of him to pick and pull out that would calm the annoyance of being unable to even comfort himself by slamming down a phone after the order he’d received from Snoke’s assistant.

Why are phones too damn expensive to throw around these days?

Aggressively pressing down the intercom button on his desk, Kylo waited. Fingers tapping to time how many seconds it took his assistant Poe to respond as he craved an excuse to yell at anyone, but before he could get to two seconds the buzz came back. “Yes, sir.”

“Damn it,” Kylo growled under his breath.


“Two questions.”

“Shoot,” his capable assistant answered back.

“How much does it cost for an old-fashioned work phone?”

“Are you asking because you’re angry again that you can’t slam your cell?”

“No,” Kylo indifferently disputed, but the half second pause gave him away. Leaning back in his chair, he positively glared at his ocean view outside as he heard a faint snicker on the end of the line.

izzycat6  asked:

Do you have recommendations for a Klance slowburn fic? (Doesn't really matter if it's an AU)

Friend f r i e n d it’s been ages since I actually got to sit down and read a fic but I’ve read lots of them in the past so you definitely came to the right person :P (I actually wrote one of my own; it’s called Magic Me Some Love and is about Galra!Keith/Magician!Lance in a medieval fantasy setting, if you’re into that.)

Now. Slow burn klance fics that aren’t on pretty much every fic rec list out there already with a minimum of either 60k words or that are unfinished still:

Ignorance Is Bliss by YouAreInAComaWakeUp

As it turns out, learning that your house is haunted makes the ghosts a lot more aggressive. Who knew?
Ah, well. At least one of them is hot. And he’s the less-evil one, too, so that’s always a plus.


The Message by Shipstiel

Keith is texted by accident by some idiot one day, and honestly he’s not even sure why he responds. Or why he keeps responding. Yet somehow he finds himself drawn in, and okay, so maybe this fool is mildly entertaining after all. Who would’ve thought.

>>wrong number AU with an extra dash of angst. But if you’ve read any of the other fics this author has written you’ll know that they specialize in fluff and that absolutely shines through in the fic^^

Quest for Altea by fandomlicious

20 years after the legendary sword Voltron was drawn from its stone by Queen Allura, it is stolen and eventually lost in the dangerous Balmeran Forest. To prevent the rogue knight Zarkon, his witch companion Haggar and their army of Galra warriors from claiming the sword and conquering all of Altea, it falls to Lance, with the help of a dark-haired hermit, to embark on the treacherous journey, save his kingdom and reunite his broken family.

>>if you don’t mind OCs that you get to know throughout the fic taking on a more important role, you should totally check out this fic. It’s plot heavy and reads like a published novel :D

Foreign Scenes by bwyn

Lance has been dreaming of travelling since the first time he heard stories from his family as a child. Now, having finally the time and money to do it, he goes on a trip to Europe to see some of the most culturally rich cities on the continent. Except he keeps bumping into the same guy over and over again, in random cities, doing stupid shit, and ultimately dragging Lance into his trouble, too.

>>it’s one of the few fics that I haven’t read personally yet and still won’t hesitate to recommend. lots of my friends have read and praised it, apparently it’s fluffy and fun. it’s absolutely on my to read list :D

Crossroads by manamune

When Keith crashed his Lion into a Galra warship in order to stop it from destroying a solar system, and more importantly, his friends, he was fully prepared to die for it.
What he didn’t prepare for was to wake up in an alternate universe where he and Lance were dating.

>>this one. if you haven’t read it yet, go read it. it was my fav voltron fic for a long long time!!!! it’s got it all, plot, romance, character development, realistic amounts of angst- it’s very very good. 

Drive It Like You Mean It by Zizzani

The Castle of Lions is the venue for the city’s most dangerous illegal street races where drivers come to test the cut of their tires. Lance has long defended his title as champion, but when a newcomer shows up and threatens his position things take an interesting turn.

>>not into cars and street racing AUs? neither am i, my friend, and yet this is one of the best voltron fics i’ve read. trust me when i tell you that you want to read everything written by this author.

Sharps and Accidentals by Zizzani (! unfinished!)

Keith is a talented up and coming violin virtuoso. Lance hates him immediately.
Or an AU in which Lance and Keith both attend the same music university. Keith is deaf. Lance is Trying™.

>>if there is one deaf!AU you should read then it’s this one. it’s really amazing all around - i’ve been following it since 2016 and i still always get excited over e-mail updates.

Ghost of the Future / Shadow of the Past by wittyy_name & Zizzani (! unfinished!)

When Lance is thrown through time, his future self from one year ahead is transported to the past in his place.
When Lance is thrown through time, he finds himself one year in the future, in place of the Lance that should be here.


Stick It by noussommeslessquelettes

After a run-in with the law, former national phenom turned delinquent Keith Kogane is forced to return to the regimented world of elite gymnastics, facing old foes and new challenges.

>>!!!!!!!!!! it’s such a good fic!! based on such a good movie!!!!! i’m kinda upset that not more people have read it, it’s good, give it a try, it won’t disappoint^^

Not That Bad by varelsen

A college AU featuring coffee shops, silly rivalries, motorcycles, arcade games, friendships, and lots of warm, fluffy feelings that are both confusing and delightful all at the same time.

>>the summary nails it. also starring socially anxious!keith but despite that he seems pretty in character. it’s amazing and i really love this author’s style of writing :D

He Who Fights Monsters by magisterpavus

In a world where monstrous dragons terrorize humanity daily, the Garrison trains valiant Knights to slay the evil beasts and defend Earth. But when Knight cadet Lance Espinosa is kidnapped by a strange red dragon who kills its own kind, certain truths are revealed…and so are the true monsters.

>>dragon au i repeat dragon au this is not a drill everyone - this fic!!! is freaking!!!! amazing!!!!!!! it’s in my top 5 minimum go try it out :D

Altea High by Lixie (! unfinished!)

Go back to school they said. It’ll be fun they said. Yeah, sure. It’s tons of fun scaling lava walls, accidentally setting things on fire, and being babysat by the school’s flirt.
When Lance signed up (*cough* bribed *cough*) to show the new firebug around the school he thought it would be a piece of cake. He did not anticipate the sour attitude, spontaneous explosions, intimate moments in elevators…

>>the sky high au you always knew you needed :D it’s still in the very early stages but the fic is really fun so far!!

Blue Shells and Comic Books by SonofHades (! unfinished!)

Lance has too much time on his hands, Keith doesn’t have enough. Lance leans more towards being outgoing and sociable, while Keith keeps to himself and can be mostly unpleasant. Neither think they have anything in common. What they don’t realize, however, is that there happens to be a very popular graphic novel that connects them together. Lance happens to be an avid reader and Keith just happens to secretly be the author.

>>another fic i’m super pumped for oh my god. each new chapter mail has me grinning like a maniac. the waiting between updates is suffering but all worth it in the end. it’s fun and interesting and i love it!

Flirting With Death by drippingpen (! unfinished!)

Keith commits the ultimate taboo as a grim reaper: he saves a life.
More specifically, he saves Lance’s life.
Now they are forever linked, unable to survive without the other. Keith must protect Lance from the forces that are trying to right Keith’s wrong and kill Lance.

>>skdfghjksfhgdksjfhgjfjd i cannot describe it. the plot is really amazing and keith and lance are so attracted to each other but they can’t kiss because that would literally kill lance. it belongs to the top most interesting voltron fics out there :D

in your shoes by lydiamartin (! unfinished!)

The one where Keith and Lance live in different cities but swap bodies – and angry love notes – multiple times a week.

>>Kimi No Na Wa (your name) AU!!!! so basically anything but your typical body switch AU :P give it a try, you will be surprised by it, especially if you haven’t seen the movie.

Of Lions And House Cats by Ms_Towa (! unfinished!)

Keith is a superhero who’s been pining after the cute boy who works at the music shop across the street from HQ. He also doesn’t know that the cute boy is the same vigilante he wants to bring to justice.

>>!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! all the chapters are insanely long but they’re all worth it. the plot develops rather slowly but it’s perfect as it is :P the slowest of burns. despite that it never made me lose interest in it so definitely go check it out if you have multiple hours of nothing to do!! :D

I’m gonna stop here because this list is already insanely long but it is faaaaaar from finished, believe me. This fandom produces so many good fics I can’t keep up with it ; - ;

space husbands: a spirk fanmix [listen] 

hello!! this is a chronological fanmix detailing the development of spock and kirk’s relationship. pls read underneath the cut, and i hope you enjoy!! xoxo 

01. hall of fame (the script): this gives me such Angsty Teen™ spock and kirk vibes and how even before they meet one another they have such desires to prove themselves (something they encourage in each other) and they are determinedly optimistic and refuse to accept anything less than greatness and asdkjhlkfjsjkafdkjsga they are so Strong

02. shame (hearts & colors): this isn’t an exact correlation to anything but imo it’s when they’re new baby officers and start to work together and spock realizes that he is feeling Feelings for kirk and he’s like no my Supreme Vulcan Logic cannot be failing me but “it’s a shame that i love you” and he tries to convince himself he doesn’t love kirk but he fails miserably

03. flames*** (henri pfr): this song is A1 had me crying ugly tears over spirk i feel like it describes spock experiencing emotions (kind of like 02. but less angsty) and he just is amazed at how much he loves kirk and i Love: “for you I go as far as I can go; when the fire, fire; in my heart, lights up again; higher, higher; and I’m burning slow; fire, fire; feel the flames comin’ up; should I fall in love or let you go” and spock is trying to decide if he should go for it and love kirk or let his emotions consume him and LAKkhsdfgHFnskdgd spock experiencing emotions is my kink

04. more than you know*** (axwell ^ ingrosso): ok here kirk (who’s been falling in love with spock too this whole time (obviously)) is the one to make a move and this is him finally telling spock that he loves him and his eyes are blazing and his hands are shaking and he’s looking at spock with such fire in his eyes because he feels this emotion so strongly and he can’t contain it anymore and NNNGgghgghgUGGH 

05. burn it down (fitz & the tantrums): ok this is spock’s response to kirk from 04. and he realizes that he has to tear down the mental blocks  and all the emotion he’s locked up and just allow himself to feel and that if he just let kirk into his heart he would never regret it and like it works out and now they know they love each other <33

06. to be human (sia): yes i know this is the wonder woman theme but imo this is kirk helping spock come to terms with emotion bc all his life and childhood he’s been taught to stifle his feelings because he’s Logical™ and i just get vibes of understanding and acceptance and spock is growing and learning to embrace his half human side as well and kirk being there for him and helping him through it and they just love each other so damn much

07. ritual (marshmello): just super emotional spirk vibes and how they’re so grateful they found one another and are in love and they each feel truly happy and can’t remember how they ever lived without the other 

08. send them off! (bastille): ok this is 100% from jim’s pov and i feel like it perfectly describes the insecurities he tries so hard to keep hidden from the others and the crew but it’s hard for him to deal with so much responsibility all the time and spock’s presence is just so comforting and he feels so much relief when spock watches over him and i especially love: “close those green eyes; and watch over as i sleep; through my darkest of dreams” bc in my mind spock = green and i get such a vivid mental picture of jim sleeping and spock watching over him see also: when this literally happened in sha ka ree

09. the anchor (bastille): just like,,,, loyal devoted comforting spirk vibes idk also the subtle lyrics that i choose to interpret as referencing telepathy and mild melding 

10. bleeding out (imagine dragons):  the mood i get from this song is like,,, when the enemy has captured the ship and it looks hopeless and the enterprise is facing death and the crew is resigned to go down fighting and this song is That Moment when either kirk or spock sacrifices himself to save the ship and to save the crew and he’s doing The Noble Thing because he cares so damn much and he refuses to die a wasteful death and is determined to save his space husband agh i’m not explaining it right but i feel it very strongly someone pls tell u me feel the vibe i’m tryna capture here 

11. maps (maroon 5): (for some reason not included in the apple playlist ??) ok super extra but like,,, if spirk ever broke up this is 100% their break up song like this is kirk being sad and angry and not knowing how to cope without his first officer and getting drunk in the med bay with bones and trying to understand what just happened and realizing that this heartbreak would be far more painful than his others,,,, and on the other side of the ship, spock in his quarters attempting to turn to reason and sense but coming up short and being lost without either logic or jim to guide him and just wanting so badly to hold his t’hy’la and the two of them not being able to take being separated and running panicked through the ship to find one another in the middle of the night and finally finding each other and holding each other so tight and not even remembering why they broke up in the first place that was stupid sarah stop being so emotional this is why you don’t write fanfic  

12. wherever i go (onerepublic): (for some reason also not included in the apple playlist ??) jim and spock realizing in light of their recent (failed) breakup from 11. that they love each other so much and that they never want to be separated and vowing to follow each other forever and realizing that they would never find another love as great as the one that they have nnnahaGGJAJFHAKJSHFA they’re so in love and i’m so emo

13. mama (jonas blue): this isn’t an exact science but this song just makes me think of the space husbands standing on the bridge together holding hands vulcan kissing and gazing out into space and wondering where they should explore next and reveling in the sense of adventure and traveling the universe together <33

14. if i lose myself (onerepublic): i can’t think of any particular scenario for this but it’s just very Spirk™ in general and i think it’s sung from kirk’s pov and they always always have each other’s backs and if there’s one thing the space husbands have learned is that they can always count on one another and that they make a Pretty Good Team

15. thunder (imagine dragons): once they have established careers as the illustrious captain and the esteemed first officer of starfleet’s elite starship they look back on all the #haters and they realize how much ass they’ve kicked and they accomplished all they’ve ever wanted and everyone finally recognizes their greatness and talent and determination and in my humble opinion the lyrics “i was dreaming of bigger things; and wanna leave my own life behind; not a yes sir, not a follower” are Very kirk and the lines “kids were laughing in my classes; while I was scheming for the masses; who do you think you are?; dreaming ‘bout being a big star” are Very spock

16. kids (onerepublic): ok so this song takes place at the end of the five year mission and jimothy and spocko are looking back at all they’d done on their mission and they’re sad it’s ending but they know it’s not The End,,, my personal headcanon (maybe this is a fic or someone else’s hc idk lol) is that spock becomes the ambassador like spock prime does in aos and i think that jim becomes a professor at starfleet academy (to the mixed horror and delight of many) and they have a nice life in san francisco and they’re happy and in love and most importantly they still have each other and they know that although their greatest adventure is coming to a close they still have so much to look forward to

17. laughter lines (bastille): ok since it’s canon that vulcans live longer than humans spock outlives jim :’( and this song is so melancholy and sad i imagine it as the two of them at jim’s deathbed and they’re whispering about how they’ll see each other again soon and i love the lines “i’ll see you in the future when we’re older; and we are full of stories to be told; cross my heart and hope to die; i’ll see you with your laughter lines” because it doesn't even matter which one of them says it they both have laughter lines from all their years of love and adventure together among the stars and it’s not a goodbye it’s just a see ya later until they’re reunited and can go galavanting off together for eternity and i’m deadass crying as i write this 

18. bad blood (bastille): i debated including this but i just couldn’t not so here we are lmao so it’s not an exact correlation to the lyrics but more so to the vibe of the song and as we all know,,,, william shatner and leonard nimoy were best friends for years because of star trek until they had a falling out before nimoy died and they never spoke again. sooo this song reminded me of them particularly: “if we’re only ever looking back; we will drive ourselves insane; as the friendship goes resentment grows; we will walk our different ways; but those are the days that bind us together, forever; and those little things define us forever, forever” and it made me sad because it seemed to fit so well so i though i should share my sad epiphany

[*** = absolute fav] “lyrics” = lyrics

hello!! sorry this is so long and so emo lmao i know most fanmixes don’t come with analysis of each song but i felt like some of my choices warranted a little explanation :)

as this is a brand new blog (and my first original post!!) i’d like to mention my absolute fav star trek blogs:

I used to write a lot when I was younger, and I really want to get into it again! Do you have any advice for improving/coming up with ideas/staying motivated? <3

Ohhh you do ask the good questions, dear anon…

This got quite wordy (surprise, it’s me!), so I’ve tucked it beneath a readmore. I really wanted to make a joke about “let me peel back the layers of how I write for you”, but that felt a little….self-indulgent :)

NTAMW says he's 'good' at getting what he wants without people noticing. i promise that in most cases this means guilt tripping or manipulating situations where you have said no. if he cannot take no without trying to change your mind, discretely or indiscreetly, he does not care for your choices. he wants his own way and he will do a lot of things to get that way, it does not matter how adverse you are to it. this is not okay. his vocabulary in describing this might seem innocent, it is not.

Congrats on 400,000 subs, Ethan!

“You will never not matter.“

I cannot describe in words the impact that @crankgameplays and this quote have had on me, but I can try my best. I found it on a day when I was heavily depressed and determined to consider myself absolutely worthless and unimportant… However when I saw this quote from him on Twitter, the force it had on my heart was indescribable. I think about these words everyday, and hold them close to my heart. They help me to smile so often, and I share this quote with my friends and anyone that is feeling down or worthless. It helps and heals so much, and is my favorite quote of all time.

Ethan is one of the heroes of my life. Watching his videos and seeing him smiling and be his silly self, it helps me so much to smile everyday. Things in my life have been getting harder and harsher and just getting up for the day is a struggle. There are times when I think I can’t go on any longer… Whenever I’m down that low, I can watch one of Ethan’s videos and smile and laugh once more. He helps me so much to just keep going everyday, to never give up, and to remember that I do matter.

Ethan, I cannot thank you enough for what you’ve done for not only me, but everyone who enjoys your videos. You are a hero to so many people… Thank you, thank you so, so much for all that you do.

Hey would you ever consider doing a tutorial or giving some pointers on how you make you pictures look like actual old time photos?

Hi ! I’m not good at doing tutorials (translation = I’ve always been lazy to describe step by step what I do) butttt I’m starting to think that I can give it a try. Just be aware that it would take me a lot of time, because I’m very slow, I don’t speak english fluently,  and I would have to split the tutorial into several parts (otherwise my post will be endless, I’m very chatty). First important information I can bring is that I use Photoshop, and I have no idea how other editing softwares work !

Also, can you be more specific please ? :) (If you answer me with an other anon ask, I will reply by updating this post) All decades have a different style, do you think about a specific period ? The way I edit is the same for each portraits (including the painting ones), so do you want me to explain more specifically how I change the color tones ? Or how I make the portraits look more realistic ?(shadows, etc… but the question would be basically “How do you edit” lol) It’s too vague for the moment and I don’t know which direction to take !

anonymous asked:

OK, so I don't know if I have depression or not. Because, honestly, I can have great days. Sometimes, great weeks! But, normally, I find myself constantly degrading myself and believing that no one cares. Even though I KNOW my friends and family care (in my head), it just doesn't feel like that, in my heart. You know what I mean? Almost like I'm trying to convince myself that nobody cares about me?? But I'm being resistant about it at the same time? Sorry, it probably doesn't make any sense!

Don’t worry, friend, you make perfect sense! I think that a lot of people who have either worked on or followed this blog can relate to what you just described.

Buckle up, kids, this got way longer than I expected it to.

anonymous asked:

Ciao! I had a question about the word "solare." I was wondering if you could explain what part of speech it is, how common it is, and how to use it? I read that it was used to describe a person but I was unsure of the specifics that came with the word. Grazie <3

Solare is an adjective, it’s quite common. You can use it both to describe a person who is an extrovert, always happy and fun (it refers to a personality “radiant as the sun”), but also to define something related to the sun (ex.: sistema solare = solar system).
There are also a few others uses but these two are the most common ones probably. I’ll try to write some better examples and explanations:

1- Meaning “of the sun”. Concerning the sun, coming from the sun, about the sun or something that uses its energy to work:
raggi solari = solar rays
eclissi solare = solar eclipse
anno solare = calendar/solar year
energia solare = solar energy
attività solare = solar activity (astronomy)
orologio solare = sundial / solar clock
macchie solari = umbra (astronomy)
pannello solare = solar panel/cell
sistema solare = solar system

2- “Obvious, as clear (=easy to understand) as the sun”. It’s the equivalent of “as clear as the day”. It’s used especially for things.
una dimostrazione solare*= a clear demonstration
*plateale (= obvious, from the theatrical conception) is common as well.

- “Bright, as radiant as the sun, illuminating”, opposite to those dark, gloomy personalities (= personalità tenebrose). “Someone who likes the sun and is like the sun”, basically. And it is used especially for people.
un viso solare = a bright face
un sorriso solare = a radiant smile (a smile that illuminates the room or a day)
una personalità solare = a bright/happy personality

4- Used to describe some pharmaceutical product that are used to protect us from the UV rays and help us tan safely in summer:
olio solare = suntan oil
crema solare = lotion / sunscreen

+++ A few of rare/specific uses that probably you won’t ever find about:

a- Really rare, unless you’re studying mythology or old religions: culto solare, meaning “cult of the Sun” (Sun = God) or the fight of a god that wins against the evil, seen as the fight of the light (sun) versus the darkness.

b- In medicine: chiodo solare (lit.= solar nail), that type of migraine that might hit you when you stay for too long under the sun. And in anatomy: plesso solare (= solar plexus), from were originate all the nerves of the abdomen.

c- Lettere solari (= letters of the sun). Here our Arabic friends would be more clear than me, but I’ll try to mention something without explaining it in detail: these letters are part of the Arabic grammar and take their name from the word used as an example of their particular “behaviour”: ash-shamsu = il sole = the sun.

d- “lastrico solare”: this specific expression defines the plain roof of some buildings. “Solare” here means “of the attic/slab” (attic, slab = solaio), and has nothing to do with the sun. But it’s extremely rare and not common to use (unless you’re an engineer probably ;). )

Let me know if you need more examples or something else!

rapnuzels  asked:


1: Currently Reading

Crown of Midnight by Sarah J. Maas and I am loathing every single second of it. It’s actually a big improvement on Throne of Glass which made me want to rip my hair out or at the very least, made me worried my eyes would get stuck in a permanent rolled position. I’m just trying to push through to the third book which is apparently when the series gets good. Fingers crossed because I liked the ACoTaR series so much (NESSIAN!!!!!!!!!!!!!).  

2: Describe the last scene you read in as few words as possible. No character names or title.

Dumb assassin is dumb.

3: First book that had a major influence on you.

The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry. It’s one of my all-time favorite books and I have a little collection of them in different languages and different versions, etc. I even have one in braille! 

4: Quick, you’re in desperate need of a fake name. What character name do you think of first?

Elinor Dashwood (Sense & Sensibility). 

5: Favorite series and why.

Oh man, that’s a tough one… but in all honesty, it’s probably Harry Potter. I have so many fond memories from the actual series itself and because of that series. It holds a special place in my heart and it was the first time I ever experienced the agony of having to wait for the next book, but also experiencing that agony with a whole load of friends. 

6: Public library or personal library?

While I do love the idea of a public library… personal library all the way! i wouldn’t call myself a germaphobe, but I am not touching books that have been touched by hundreds of other people. 

7: What is the most important part of a book, in your opinion?

The first chapter. A first chapter has got to grab your attention, set the tone of the series, ground the reader in the world while still being mysterious and not tumble down the hole of exposition. If done well, it makes you root for your protagonist without revealing too much. 

8: Why are you reading the book you’re currently reading?

Because I just need some more handsome Illyrians in my life and I thought the ToG series had them but apparently I was wrong and now I’m contemplating whether or not to continue…

9: If you were to publish a book what (besides your real name) would you use for your author name?

J. D. Salinger … oh? Already taken? Hmmm…. L. R. R. Quinn, because the “R. R.” means it’s going to be an epic fantasy novel right?

10: Do you listen to music when you read? Make a mini playlist for one of your favorite books.

Not often. I usually listen to this sleep time white noise app that plays the sound of rain, but when I do listen to music when I read, it’s always something ambient. The Tron: Legacy OST by Daft Punk is a really good one.

I recently saw a post from someone saying that you should stop describing characters by their haircolour because it’s bad roleplaying and bad writing.


You can’t tell people how to write. You can’t control people. If you try, you’re an asshole. And who are you to say what constitutes good roleplaying and what doesn’t? Check yourself, dickhead. You’re what’s wrong with this community.

Fite me, asshole

Taking requests for sequels

Hey bros. Sorry this blog’s been so dead this year. After work and training I usually get home pretty late and pretty beat. But I’ma try and devote some time to stories that get my bros off. So for inspiration, I’m gonna try something a little different. I had a few posts that continue a previous story and a lot of you seem to like that.

So if there’s a BODriver TF Quickie, TF Story, or Before and After TF you really like and want to see continued in some way, repost it with the tag, #one more rep BODriver (and/or write “Give me one more rep”). And then, if you describe what it is about the transformation post that you dig, there’s a better chance I’ll give you more of what you want. BTW, 9 times out of 10 I’ll prolly transform a new guy instead of building off the last TF. But otherwise feel free to include suggestions, as well.

A bunch of teenagers voluntarily sing too many show tunes while their lives become more and more complicated, absurd and offensive every passing day (this should be an easy one for you)

Hey Dana. I was wondering if you have any plans to develop and pitch a show of your own. If you do, what advice do you have for people who want to create their own show?

I did have plans to pitch a show. And I pitched it! And Disney bought it! And now I’m developing it!  It’s difficult and exciting ESPECIALLY because I’m doing all this for the first time. I hope I can show some images someday!

If I were to give one piece of advice to past me, it’d be to get comfortable writing entertaining scripts. As a showrunner the most important thing will be The Show, and 90% of The Show comes from The Writing. It’s difficult to find writers who will 100% understand your vision but if that’s an area you’re comfortable in you’ll never be an dire straits. I had never professionally written a script before my pilot. If I did maybe that part wouldn’t have been as stressful at the time haha. 

But let’s say you’re already good there. You’re good everywhere! 

How to pitch a thing! I used to love making “pitch books” as a kid, though I had no idea that’s what I was doing. It was just fun to develop worlds and characters! So even if you’re in HS or younger, making “pitch books” is a great way to spend your time and practice for the future. So get to it! Here’s just one format you can try: 

1. Cover page with short description of show and a fun image of your main character!

2. ½-1 full page describing your main character/s! (Don’t start with exhaustive explanations about the world, or any legends, or w/e, we’re here bc we want to connect with a character).

3. A couple pages with any other important characters you may have!

4. A page describing the most important relationships between your main character/s and others!

5. Simple 1 page description on how your world works! If it’s too complicated to get on one page, SIMPLIFY! Even the most complicated ideas can be pitched in 1-2 sentences. 

6. Important places! The main characters house? The bad guy’s castle? Stuff like that. 

7. Give em a couple episode examples! That’s where your show comes together, after all. 

And you’re done!

Fill your pitch book with fun images that show off your characters and your world! You don’t have to follow this format exactly, it’s your show, your pitch, do whatever you think will show off your ideas best. If you’re making an epic you might want to dedicate a page to where you want the show to go, and how the characters will evolve. Everything depends on what you want to make. But above all: Make it interesting to read!!! Make it fun to look at!!! Boredom is your enemy, fight against it!!!!

Are my exclamation points making this easier to understand? GREAT!!!!!

Now get out there and pitch some things cause I want new shows to watch.

You do threaten me though. Your existence threatens my world because you exist in a grey area. You dye your hair unnatural colours and stretch out your earlobes to show that you do not conform, but all I feel when I see pictures of you is fear. Because you pretend to be tiny and cute but who you truly are...well, it doesn't exist, so you are not supposed to be who you are, and I am terrified by that. Do you think you are so important that people must pluralize your pronoun?

Okay, I hear you. So I don’t think you have any reason to be afraid of me– you can’t really control how you feel, but you can control how you think, so I’m going to try to reason with you point by point and let you know why I don’t think you should be afraid of me. All that I ask is that you read this with an open mind.

- I don’t dye my hair or stretch my ears as some sort of exercise of non-conformity– I just like the way it looks. It isn’t even really an act of non-conformity because the society, that I live in permits that type of self-expression– it’s allowed. I’m not breaking the law or anything.

- I really don’t know what to make of you suggesting that who I am doesn’t exist, or that I am something that I am not supposed to be. I don’t particularly believe in any sort of creator so I don’t know who exactly would be the authority on what I’m “supposed to be,” but I really don’t think that you’re the authority on who I should or shouldn’t be, because we’ve never met. Also, you claim that what I am doesn’t exist, but I really think you should tell that to all of the terrifying, like-minded people in my inbox that are asking me if it’s okay to express themselves the way that they want to. They’re afraid to act on their feelings, or in other words: they’re afraid to be themselves. I personally don’t think that there’s anything scary about them.

- Self-importance is kind of tough for any individual to avoid, because we can only really experience life in our own shoes. We have to prioritize ourselves to some extent or else we won’t take care of ourselves– which is exactly what I’m trying to do. So yeah, I guess I do think I’m kind of important… at least important enough to try and give myself as good of a life as I can, but I don’t really think that’s abnormal. I like to be referred to a specific way, because that’s what’s most comfortable for me. You wouldn’t want someone to call you the wrong name; I don’t want someone to refer to me using the wrong pronouns (Quick sidenote: when referring to a shadowy figure whose identity is concealed by a cloak and a mask you would describe their actions by saying something like “they reached for the doorknob,” because their gender is indeterminate; therefore, singular they/them pronouns exist).

Look, the main thing to focus on is that I really don’t mean you any harm– I truly don’t! I hope that you can go on to live a happy life. I just couldn’t leave this, because historically, nothing good ever comes from this kind of fear.
