i was wondering what you've been up to

anonymous asked:

I don't know if you've been keeping up with MLP lately, but I've been wondering what Imogen would look like as a reformed Changeling.

hmm I’ve thought about that occasionally but I never really decided! I love the idea of her being all blue and sparkly and covered in gemstones, but I still want her to have long brushable hair. and what about her leg-hearts? :( a conundrum!

gave it a try anyway, not sure if I’m 100% sold on this design but she might look something like this:

I guess we can say that she has hair because 1) she’s a shapeshifter so she can be as hairy as she wants, and 2) Moonstuck is an AU anyway so you can’t tell me what to do DAD.

I LOVE your posts! And I wanted to get your thoughts on something: you've spent some time on the facade that Dean uses (the pretty, dumb one). And I couldn't help but wonder about Sam's corresponding facade. Because we KNOW Sam sees right through that macho/airhead bullshit, and thinks Dean is brilliant. So what if some of Sam's reactions (specifically the negative ones in front of an audience) to Dean's acting is his way of backing him up, of completing the narrative and following Dean's lead?

Hey there! Thank you, so happy you enjoy my ramblings. :)

I’ve always taken Sam’s negative reactions at face value, both because Dean has been presenting a certain face to Sam purposely for a long time and I’m not convinced Sam does always see more than what Dean intends for him to see. Specifically, the I’m tough as nails, nothing phases me face (from 2.03): 

and because of Sam’s reactions in private when Sam discovers something unexpected about Dean, like when he learned in 1.08 that Dean watches Oprah: 

Or the way he makes fun of Dean for liking Dr. Sexy in 5.08: 

And here in 7.06, Sam is so freaked out by Dean enjoying Air Supply, he turns off the radio: 

Just look at the awkward silence ensue. I think if Sam was trying to back Dean up, he’d need a solid knowledge that Dean likes things like this, and I’d think he would want him to continue on being open about it by letting Dean know he’s free to enjoy what he wants to enjoy. But instead we have a Sam who is still freaked out by Dean whenever he does something that seems out of character from the gotta be tough big brother he’s known since they were kids. He was just as freaked out in 10.15 when Dean decided to let Taylor Swift play on the radio: 

I see a lot of this as having to do with Sam and Dean’s pseudo-parental unit syndrome because in a way Sam is learning who Dean is, like a child learns that their parents are people with varied interests as they reach a later stage in life; instead of just a one-dimensional being who has no other life outside of them. It’s an ongoing journey. 

His reactions to Dean in public in regard to things like Dean’s love of all things cowboy I think just comes from Sam not enjoying the same interests as his brother: 

Sam and Bobby both have similar reactions to Dean’s love of old westerns, and it makes Dean do this (6.18): 

I don’t think that’s the kind of reaction Sam would want to reinforce if he was trying to back Dean up. It’s more likely that he’s not even really paying attention to Dean’s reactions and instead focusing on his own disbelief that Dean even likes the cowboy stuff. 

Sam’s negative reactions  to things like Dean’s jokes, I’ve always seen as Sam just not enjoying the same brand of humour as Dean does. Dean isn’t presenting a certain face like he does with other things when it comes to his humour. He’s genuinely just a goofy dude, who’s humour is not to Sam’s taste (3.12):

And, honestly Dean always looks so bummed when Sam does this, I’ve never seen it as anything but a genuine reaction from Sam. And honestly, it’s more of brother reaction (just like the Dr. Sexy ribbing) than anything else, I think. 

I only ever want to live as my true genuine self. But it’s so hard in this day’s society where portraying an image is so much easier and yet so difficult to maintain. It’s unfulfilling. What kind of life stops you from doing things that you want to do because it’s “not like you”? Defy peoples thoughts, never blend in, be the person that never wastes a moment conforming to societies expectations. Be weird and wonderful and feel alive - because in the end none of it matters, nobodies opinions about you matter. Life’s too short to give a damn.

i have no clue if this has been asked of you yet or not, so please pardon me if it has! i was wondering if you've ever talked about what hairstyles are your favourites or hairstyles that you really enjoy seeing?

Hi, thanks for the question, I’ve never been asked that before! To be honest I don’t know much about traditional Chinese hairstyles from an academic point of view, but I can talk about what I like!

I generally prefer half-up, half-down hairstyles. My favorite style is one in which the hair is arranged into a bun/loop on one side of the head, the rest is tied behind, and lock(s) of hair dangle down one or both sides of the head.

While it may be my favorite, I like seeing all kinds of other hairstyles too, from cute double buns to extravagantly arranged loops ^^

anonymous asked:

hi! i'm really sorry if you've been asked this before, but i was wondering, as an artist how did you find your style? like for a person that is interested in learning how to draw, should they start by trying to draw realistically and at what point should they try to draw in a way that is just their own? if they use other artists as references isn't it possible that they'll just end up developing a style too similar? what was your process? thanks!

I feel like you’re asking the wrong person here (I’m very sorry ;;) as you might see i /heavily/ lack of a coherent art style…

All of these have different coloring and lining I doubt they would be recognized as mine if you found them without knowing the author/signature on them

I basically do whatever I feel like doing and i’m /constantly/ changing this, that, trying this new brush, but also this new type of lineart, but now bigger eyes, smaller noses, more realistic bodies-less realistic bodies… However several months ago someone brought up a very similar question and when I replied with ‘i’m so much of a temperamental artist my butt can’t be quiet in the same style for long’ i got an anon saying the art style is not the formal features of your drawings, but the content of it, the understanding you have of the world which reflects on your art. I think this input was very smart, and very truthful. That made me realize- after being for a year very angry with my own art- i don’t really need to be coherent in formal features. I don’t like it. I like art!! to be an adventure!! To draw whatever, to try anything and making mistakes!!! Being incoherent can play a huge disadvantage on my artistic career but!! Talent is the longest trip!!!!, we must enjoy it!! I find that, at the end, the matter is not about finding an art style but finding what works for you. Art is also an introspective journey, the better you know yourself the better you know what you can improve and what you can use. To get some stability and coherence in your skill, if you lack of spatiality don’t try to draw huge ass super detailed backgrounds? Mm… like… I had a huge breakdown regarding art this year, I didn’t know what I wanted, how I wanted it, why my art was like that, where i was going with this… So I forced myself to start from scratch some things I had assumed as absolute (= body has to follow canon, coloring has to fit inside the lines, there has to be harmonic coherence in the palette, a mistake shows you don’t know how to art) and determined what my art currently had and the values I liked in other art styles. I think my art holds a very important photographic component, I wanted to keep that but with everything looking more delicate, so I have been trying to get there…

So my advice is that you throw out of the window every insecurity you have about the lacks in your art and analyze what it is that you like to draw, and why, and how, and where you found something similar in other artist, and what it is they have that it makes you like their art this much, apply it, twist it, experiment, have fun! It doesn’t matter if your anatomy, coloring, composition aren’t correct as long as it looks coherent put together. And slowly you will start understanding better what you’re doing and how, the tools you’re using, how you could improve, what else you could add…  (㇏(•̀w•́)ノ)

Hi, hope you're having a good day. I was just wondering, since sometimes writers think of dialogue or another aspect of the story in very weird situations/places, what do you think the strangest place/situation you've come up with dialogue for W2H has been?

Oh!  Huh… interesting question!  I can’t recall any particularly strange situations or places where I’ve come up with ideas/dialogue for W2H, but I think that’s partly because I only tend to think about it really intently when I have a lot of time on my hands and nothing else to occupy my thoughts… and I feel like that has gotten harder to do as I’ve gotten older.  Like working at a boring 9-5 job or sitting in a class zoning out is pretty much PRIME daydreaming/brainstorming time, right?  Haha.  

But I suppose to name a few notable ones, over the years:

  • driving back and forth on I-70 from Kansas City to St. Louis. (I put that opening song on repeat and tried to picture the timing in my head the whole way)
  • lying awake in bed at night.  Sometimes jumping up to write notes on a giant dry erase board on the back of my door.  (this is probably where it happened most frequently, early on)
  • during shifts working at a movie theatre
  • during shifts working at a mexican restaurant
  • during shifts working at a Forever21 (at one point furing this time I’d considered for my senior film just doing a side story from someone’s POV, like Mephistopheles.  Weird, right?)
  • during shifts working as a mall cop, specifically driving around in the security vehicle in the parking lot, or hiding in service corridors.
  • on a plane
  • on a train
  • in a box
  • with a fox
  • and pretty recently, I had dialogue come to me in a dream actually.  It wasn’t exactly useful dialogue, but it kinda helped me to rethink/reframe what I was writing!  That was kinda cool.

I guess that’s pretty much it, as far as memorable/notable places, haha.  How about you guys?  What’s the weirdest place you’ve ever come up with story elements?

I have discussed this question before, but I don’t think it’s been any time recently! With the localization officially out now, it couldn’t hurt to go back over some of the same questions, to help clear things up for new fans!

I’ll go into detail about this, but it will involve some spoilers for later chapters of the game as well (including who the mastermind/ringleader is) so if you haven’t gotten that far you might not want to read if you’re not comfortable with that!

anonymous asked:

Ayy cringe, I was wondering if you've gotten any asks on this blog about a s/o needing support after a loved one dies? If you had I was going to look, and if not request a little if that's alright. Going through some personal stuff right now and you've always done wonders to cheer me up with your writing.

Hey sorry this took so long, like I said work’s been kicking my ass. Also I got about halfway through this one and then my dumbass laptop deleted everything. I’m glad my writing can do anything to cheer you up, and hope you get to a better place

UT!Sans: A lot of this is dependent on how you best grieve. Need to talk? Need space? He’s pretty good about giving you what you need, as well as keeping the others off your back. When you need more effusive care, more emotional, Papyrus can step in too. He’s got his own experience with loss, and he knows nothing heals like time. But while you’re in the thick of it, he’s here for you. He can’t promise perfection. But he’s got your back for better or for worse.

UT!Papyrus: Honestly, even if he didn’t know the person you lost that well, he’s gonna be a bit shaken by it. Papyrus is pretty sensitive to loss. He’s going to have his own grief to go through. But he goes into full caretaker mode for you. Cooking, cleaning, you are not lifting a FINGER for a while. When he’s not doing that he’s usually cuddling you. When appropriate he’s known to give a pretty good pep talk, but if its not the time he does his best to just sit and listen to you process.

UF!Sans:……yeah, he gets it. He understands the hell out of losing people. Only trouble is that he’d rather die than talk about it. Red hates talking about that kind of thing, reliving those emotions with an audience. And he’s going to assume you’re the same way. If you’re the kind of person that needs to talk through this you may want to call in some backup. This isn’t to say that he’s not helping. Far from it. Small tasks, little things that would normally demand your time but that you just aren’t feeling up to somehow get done. You aren’t bothered by unwanted phone calls and visits. Little gifts keep turning up around the house. He refuses thanks. “listen doll, don’t worry about it. Just focus on gettin back to yourself.”

UF!Papyrus: You’d think a Papyrus would be better at this. But his approach to emotions has always been to bottle it up. It can be dealt with later. So when forced face to face with the suffering of someone he loves….he’s honestly got no clue. He’ll cook, clean, make sure you’re taking care of yourself, all of that. But the breaking point comes two weeks in. He manages to convince you to take a walk with him and leads you to a small, isolated clearing. Then he tells you to just let it out. The anguish. The pain. The hurt. Just….cry, scream, anything. Do what you need to do. And when you’re exhausted, he carries you home. You’ll do this as often as you need to.

US!Sans: For the early days, he’s fairly similar to Tale Papyrus, just providing the best care he can. But where he really shines is helping you slowly reintegrate. At some point you are going to need to return to the world. And he’s excellent at helping you learn to find happiness again. It starts small. Coaxing you into a walk. A quick workout. For once he’ll bend his intolerance for sugary foods if he can convince you to pickup takeout at Muffet’s with him. Slowly progressing up. A visit from Alphys. A date. Slowly helping you ease yourself back in to a daily routine. While you need to grieve, he’s there for you, but more than anything he wants you to find healing and get back to your normal self.

US!Papyrus: This guy is a fantastic therapist. Seriously, he will talk you through anything. If you need space, fine. He’s willing to give it to you. But I can only recommend ventin everything you need to at him. He’s a good listener and is fantastic about responding with just enough comfort that you feel it, but not enough that you feel pitied. He’s been where you’re at. Over and over. And at the time he was just desperate to have someone he could talk to about it who would remember the conversation later. He’s more than ready to have your back now.

SF!Sans: Unless he knew the person you lost pretty well he may come across as a bit impatient. To the point of callousness. It may seem like he’s annoyed by your grieving. He doesn’t mean to, in all honesty. Its more that….he wants you back. He hates when you’re hurting, and the fact that he can’t do anything about this is frustrating him. He’ll need to recalibrate a bit. He has experienced loss, its inevitable in a fell universe. But in his case, he acts out his grief. Pours his energy into training. If you don’t grieve that way he doesn’t know what to do. For once he’ll swallow his pride and goes to Papyrus for advice. He’s going to do his best to meet you halfway. But just know that no matter how many times he stumbles, he’s doing this because you have his full support. He will do anything to help you.

SF!Papyrus: More of a listener than a talker, but the effect is the same as Stretch. Syrup hates that you have to go through this. But eh’s here for you while you need him. The two of you hole up in your room, just laying on the bed together. He leaves to get food and tries to make sure you’re showering and everything, but in general. he’s just hanging on to you, letting you be quiet or leet it out as needs be. Part of him wishes he could do more, but in the end he knows better than anyone that sometimes you just need someone to be there.

thegraceofebonee  asked:

You don't have to answer this if you're uncomfortable and think it's too personal, but what is your thoughts on marriage and kids? I've wanted to ask you for a while, and as someone who's older that I look up to, I'm just curious about your answer. I use to want marriage and kids, but now my views have changed a little. I know you've been with Brent for a while and you're 26 but haven't gotten married. It stereotypical to get married in your 20s, and was wondering if you were more free thinking.

Honestly, I want marriage and kids. Brent and I have discussed marriage a few times now, and it hasn’t happened yet because… he hasn’t proposed. He has hinted that he needs to plan something, but yeah… idk when it’ll happen. Of course, I could just propose to him, but I want him to do it. 

As for kids, I’ve wanted them since I was like, 12. If I had stayed on working in the government, and did the M.Sc I was planning for, and got a permanent job with benefits etc, I probably would have been able to have kids in a few years. Originally I wanted children before I turned 30, but as it stands now, I’ll graduate animation at 29. Then I’ve got to land a steady job with benefits (which is very rare in the animation industry, or so I’ve heard), or pay in to a plan, or just have enough income that supporting a family is feasible. In any case, I very much want children. 

But yeah… like, 80% of my mid-twenties friends are now married and/or have children, populating my Facebook timeline with all their updates and photos and - like, I’m really happy for them, but at the same time, I’m a little bit jealous… and it doesn’t really make things easier when people say “oh, you and Brent have been dating for almost a decade! When are you getting married etc?” (I know you didn’t mean anything by it, but I’ve been hearing this a lot lately from my family and friends). 

That’s not to say that everyone in their mid twenties has to get married… I have a cousin who has been with her partner for over 10 years, and they have a house and two children, and they’re not married by choice - maybe the practice is getting a little pushed to the side with my generation, I don’t know. Point is - I personally do want to get married, before I have kids.

Ooh, yes, I remember! I’m sure I can rustle up a few head canons :) 

  • I think the reason Eliza is so attracted to Alex is because of his conviction and his insistence on doing what’s right. He’s been bullied and intimidated by people who looked down on him all his life and he’s just done with it, he doesn’t care if the biggest organised crime family in the city comes after him, he’s sticking to what he thinks is right. Eliza’s so used to people being terrified of her because of her surname, of not having a real connection with anyone. But Alex isn’t like that, he treats her no differently. He treats her like a person. And that’s what she loves.
  • It takes them a while to admit to themselves that what they’re doing os actually dating, not meeting up to try and get Alex to accept bribes from her father so he won’t mess up their rigged cases any more. All the meeting up in nice coffee shops, in the park, in the museum, at the cinema, places that are 100% date spots. Eventually, it’s Alex who puts his foot down and is like ‘Eliza, are we together?” and she finds herself saying yes, even though she knows the danger it puts him in. 
  • They start dating officially, if in secret, before they have sex. Otherwise it would have felt that Eliza was just screwing him to get what she wanted and she’d never do that. She genuinely loves this strange guy, she’s like crazily in love with him. So the first time they sleep together its genuinely quite romantic, Alex taking her back to his place, more than a little embarrassed that its small and cluttered and surely a million worlds away from the grand places she’s used to in high society. But Eliza loves it. Its so homey and well loved, she feels more at home there than she ever has in her father’s mansion. Soon, she’s spending every night there, with Alex.
  • Sex with Alex is like nothing Eliza’s ever had before. He’s not just good, he does things just for her, just to make her feel nice and doesn’t expect anything in return. She’s used to guys from her father’s network or other families, guys with heads bloated on their own self importance and, as a result, awful in bed. After the first time with Alex, she will just not let him go for hours and hours. 
  • Alex gives Eliza a present one day and he’s blushing and apologising and admitting that, yeah, he knows this is probably so naff compared to the extravagance she’s used to, he’s not sure why he even bothered but it made him think of her…And when Eliza opens it, it’s this pendant with a beautiful flower encased in resin, the flower she happened to casually mention one time was her favourite and of course Alex remembered. That necklace means more to her than any diamonds or gold she’s ever had.
  • Eliza’s sisters of course know what’s going on, Angelica sees them out on a date and they try and convince her to drop this before it gets out of control, they’re just worried about her, about what their father might to if he finds out she’s fallen for one of their biggest antagonists. But they can see how happy Eliza is at the same time, its a hard situation for them.
  • Things go south, in short. Philip Schuyler can tell something is up with his middle daughter, his best spy. She’s had to lie to him so many times about where she was at night or on an evening, why she didn’t sleep in her apartment, why she missed appointments. And then she gets pregnant. Eliza wants to keep the baby, Alex is overjoyed if a little terrified and they make plans to run away together, with her sisters’ help. But the night, her parents find the sonogram scan and plane tickets in her bedroom and the tickets are under Alexander Hamilton’s name.
  • Schuyler sends people after Alex, assuming he’s knocked up Eliza, that he’s kidnapping her, that he’s done awful things, never once guessing that they’re in a relationship. So when Eliza goes to Alex’s apartment, she finds a bloodied and beaten Alex tied to a chair and her father pointing a gun at his face. 
  • She is horrified, puts herself between Alex and her father, explaining everything in a desperate rush. Philip is furious, of course, not believing it at first. But he sees the way Eliza is fully ready to let him shoot her to defend Alex and he relents. He lets them leave together, warning her that this does mean she can never come back, they’d be in too much danger. 
  • So Alex and Eliza start their new life together and Happily Ever After

anonymous asked:

Hi M! I was wondering if you could tell us a bit more about Meredith's character? (Like you've done with Wren and Alexander). I sometimes feel like I get her, but other times I really don't. Like why did she go through the guys in the group like that? (started with James, then Richard, then Oliver) Did she just want to have sex with all the guys in the group? Did she want to pair up with the best male actor? And what has been people's general response to her as a character? Thanks!

Meredith has spent her entire life being made to think that her personal worth is dependent on her sex appeal. That is a very, very difficult lesson to un-learn, and it is a large part of the reason that she craves romantic attachment; she sees it as a form of validation. She has also spent her entire life starved for the attention and approval of the male figures in her family, so she looks for it from other men. She’s been conditioned to think (partly by the society she’s grown up in, partly by people like Gwendolyn who insist on casting and costuming her the way they do, and partly by her father’s and brothers’ disinterest) that the only reason a man would ever take an interest in her would be sexual, so that’s how she pursues it. That moment James mentions–“Decided she wanted me and assumed I wanted her, because doesn’t everyone?”–isn’t about arrogance. It’s about insecurity. (It’s remarkable how often those two things look the same.) James misrepresents it because he has his own issues with Meredith, is consistently hypercritical of her, and in this instance is actively trying to make her look bad. He’s a good representation of how men (and women) have been treating her all her life: dismissive, superior, and suspicious of her intentions. (His questions are actually not so far off from the ones you’re asking. Does she just want to have sex with everyone? Does she just want to pair up with the best male actor? None of the automatic assumptions are good or even neutral ones. Is it so crazy to think that she actually just liked them all individually at different points in time? Three people in four years is not that many, and it’s not surprising they might come from the pool of people you work most closely with. Yet we tend to leap to the worst conclusions. Food for thought.)

It’s perfectly possible I haven’t written her well enough for all this to come across, but she deserves more credit than James (and many others) give her, and that’s where Oliver comes in. Oliver, unlike James and Richard and most of the other people she’s had occasion to interact with in her life–Alexander and Filippa and even Colborne make suggestive jokes about her–does not see her as just a set of homewrecking curves walking around. And when he does catch himself treating her that way, he recognizes that behavior as (1) learned and (2) not good, and makes a conscious effort to improve that. Is he attracted to her? Absolutely. But he also respects her, and that’s the big difference.

To answer your questions about people’s responses to Meredith, they have definitely been varied, but what I think is most telling is that people who are older (and especially women who are a little bit older) tend to be more forgiving of her, and much more sympathetic. I think that’s partly because they’ve just had more time to see how how badly the world can mess young women up. Meredith has a lot of problems. She is often unpleasant and for a lot of people totally unlikable. But she’s not just a sex-crazed pretty bitch, and part of her story arc is her realizing that she’s not a sex-crazed pretty bitch, which is the role she’s been cast in, in life as onstage, time out of mind. Her life is harder than it looks, and she is more fragile than she seems.  

  • Adam: She might not forgive me, but she still fancies me. I can tell by the way she looks at me. (Robert laughs) What? Not many women would kick this outta bed, mate!
  • Robert: And yet you've been dumped by pretty much every girl you've ever been out with.
  • Adam: Rob, please, man, I need her back. Put in a word for me?
  • Robert: You snogged Vanessa. I'm the last person that's gonna give you a reference. Just face it, you're a car crash!
  • Adam: Says you! You're married to my best mate and you got Rebecca up the duff. Go figure!
  • Aaron: You're both equal screw-ups when it comes to relationships. Deal with it.
  • Robert: And then you wonder why I wouldn't help you get back with Vic?

anonymous asked:

my friend asked me this today, and i thought i'd ask what you thought too! "what's the best thing about the stevetony fandom/being in the stevetony fandom?" sorry if you've already been asked this, just wondering what your response would be :)

This is such an interesting question, Anon.  I thought about it last night to try to figure out a good answer and my mind just kept coming back to basically feeling included in something.  Getting to be a part of something.   The idea that people are interested in my stories is still something that amazes me.  That connection to people, that shared experience, I think that is the thing that I love most about this fandom.  Everyone has truly been so welcoming and supportive.  I’m just blown away sometimes.  

Growing up, fandoms were often male-dominated and there was so much blowback against a girl being a part of anything like that, both from the guys and from other girls who didn’t get it.  So, I bought Teen Beat and put posters of Tom Cruise on my wall like the other girls and hid my Robotech books in the back of the closet.  There was no internet then.  Comic book stores were not a thing in my small town and certainly not something a girl would go to, at least in my mind.  Sometimes, I could get fanzines like Starlog from the library when they were done with them, and they had ways to mail order things in the back pages, so I started getting a few things that way.  There was a convention I went to in college where you could buy a printed out Star Wars fanfic for like $3 under the table.  Literally.  I mean, it was hidden in a box under one of the booth’s tables and  you had to know the table to ask. Someone told me about it and the Star Trek bloopers VHS tape you could buy.  Exciting times.

But, that is a very lonely and isolated way to experience fandom.  So, for me, it is the openness of connection with other people that is the best part.  I think sometimes that maybe others take it for granted because it is so easy now to come and go, move between fandoms, find new spaces.  For me, though, this is still just so phenomenal.  People sharing ideas and their love of these characters, writing stories and talking about them, making art and videos, it is this whole new world of creativity that I didn’t realize existed until recently.  The acceptance and inclusiveness, this feeling of being amongst friends, that’s the best part to me. *hugs all of you*  Thank you for letting me join your fun!

Just wanted to send you a little note to say how wonderful I think you and your guild are. You've been around the server doing your thing and now sharing your stories here, we are getting to see what a caring and supportive group of RPers looks like. Keep up the wonderful stories and guild antics.

I truly thank you for saying this. For five years now I’ve taken pride in my guild and the image/ message we display to the server, and it’s always great to hear that we’re doing it right. <3

every time i see something about joseph "joey boy" whedon's wonder woman script i think about what you said about firefly and honestly you've never been more right, fox killing that fantastic show was the best thing that ever happened to television

Honestly I feel like if Firefly had run for more than one season there would be almost nobody talking about Firefly in 2017. I personally love Firefly and intend to rewatch it several more times in my life, but, Firefly being cancelled is the best thing that could’ve happened to Firefly’s enduring legacy. Most of the people I know straight-up would not have watched Firefly at all if not for the outrage over its premature cancellation. 

That being said, if you want to get really mad, go look up some of Joss’ plans for Inara had the series continued

So tell us, is there anything you particularly want to write, but have not had the chance? Or is there something you've been asked to write that you just didn't feel up for?

((Well… there have been some instances where I’ve wanted to try vore? I’ve seen certain people like @magatsu-belly do a wonderful job with it, but part of me is also afraid that they might not know my muses or something? Idk I’ve really wanted to try it with someone who knows what to do since I lack a lot of knowledge on the topic. There’s also been some other times where I’ve been asked to play certain characters that I didn’t feel like playing at the time, or when I wanna play a specific one but don’t feel like making them a permanent muse here. It just feels kinda meh to me to do that, since it might attract people in hoping to RP with that character. But that’s really it for that part))
