"HANNAH FUCKED CLAY'S LIFE AND OF EVERYONE ON THE TAPES"

Okay. I just want to say what i think about this. I’ve seeing a lot of people hating on hannah because she “ ruined clay’s and Alex, Zach, etc…lifes.”

Clay didn’t deserve to be on the tapes but he MUST be because as Hannah said was her story and if she was going to tell it Clay couldn’t stay outside.
Tony did not deserve the burden that Hannah left him but I also understand Hannah a lot and because she did the things she did. 
Also, we have only some of the reasons. Not all. For which Hannah killed herself, because the list said more.
Besides that, is true that Clay suffered a lot and if Hannah had been clearer with him surely she would have saved.
But Hannah was very hurted and got tired of asking for help from the wrong people and Clay really liked her so I understand why she felt afraid and was embarrassed to tell Clay what was wrong. (Removing the fact that she thought it was only going to ruin him, I think it went beyond that)
She didn’t want to lose him but she losed him anyway because he ended up going.

The point here is not Hannah.
Unfortunately, the point here is Clay. And Tony. And all who could do something but did not.
The point of the story is that, it makes everyone stand up and think ‘I should have listened, I should have said this, I should have insisted’
When Tony said he ignored the tapes until half an hour later because he thought Hannah was a bit dramatic. When Clay got scared and left the room because he did not know how to react. All those are things that they know were wrong. They could have changed everything from having been a bit braver or not to have judged.
So I’m not judging Hannah or thinking that she was wrong for put Clay in the tapes, Clay already suffered from panic and anxiety before the tapes.
This just hit him more and did all that because he suffered those things and Hannah didn’t knew but still, Clay needed to know the truth.
And Tony told to him this several times.
If Clay did not listen to the tapes, there would be no story.
Besides, was needed that clay to be brave to make everyone recognize their mistakes and do justice. If Hannah never made the tapes, what happened to her was going to keep happening.
And that’s what the show want to teach and that’s what Clay tries to prevent.

Yesterday I read that a girl put “I hate Hannah because of her Clay’s going to spend his whole life trying to save everyone”
I think not just Clay, everyone on the tapes are going to think twice before doing things and I think that’s not bad.
Sometimes the truth hurts. Sometimes people prefer to ignore things to do something because it’s very painful to face it or take justice. But sometimes ignoring it is worse. And that’s what Clay learns. That it is necessary to speak when one has to speak and do something, that one has to be courageous.
That’s why Clay also continues passing the tapes at the end to Porter because everyone needs to take responsibility for what they did. ( also that jessica asked him for do it) And if you can not live with it, you try to live to repair it. And If what you did has no way of being fixed you have to live with it in the way you can.
But you can’t live like nothing if you made someone kill himself.
No matter how few intentions you had or how little you did compared to others, you did it, and anyway, none of those who did Hannah things had good intentions.
Not even Zach.
Just Clay.
That’s why, although for clay it was very painful to listen to the tapes and this almost did killed himself ( i cried a lot in that part) I think he had to listen to them and it’s like Tony said “you’re not God, you can’t stop everything”
Clay only feels guilty because he couldn’t save Hannah but none of they could, they all failed even if Clay loved her.
Tony is very sensible about what he said to Clay, because he needed to know about the tapes but he also had to know that he should not be there, that he didn’t do anything wrong, and that he was the only reason Hannah could have had to stay.
But I think guilt sometimes causes people to react.
And even if to Alex made him kill himself, if the tapes did not exist they would all have continued to live their lives quiet while Hannah killed herself.
And Bryce and all those who fucked up his life would never stop hurting others.
What is being said behind the scenes “if Bryce or any of them don’t get a cost for what they did, they will keep doing it over and over again.”
So I think everything had to be in that way. If Clay wasn’t on the tapes, nothing would have happened and no one would have done justice. Jessica would have believed Justin just as long as who knows and when she knew, she would not have the courage to talk about it or face anyone. Justin would never have considered the things he did or would never have had to tell Jessica the truth or face Bryce and break their false friendship. Bryce would never have confessed and would continue raping girls because no one of who are in the tapes faced bryce. They just left it that way. They kept their mouths shut for their own protection.
The only one who did something is Clay. And Alex would have continued to do things to be part of the bryce group and the idiots. Alex would have continued to do lists or who knows other things.
Marcus would have continued to play girls whenever he felt like it.
(And although many believe that zach is innocent and what he did was minimal or not important, I do not think so) maybe what Zach did was minimal compared to others in the tapes. But it matters. In the end, everything matters.
As hannah said is a snowball that is getting bigger.
So Zach stole the only source of happiness that Hannah had at that time (besides he being very childish making this lmao) and not only that, Hannah wrote to him a letter telling him how much she was suffering and that she needed those compliments.
And Zach ignored the letter. Maybe he did not throw it. Maybe he saved it. A point for Zach.
But he ignored her. He did not do anything. And sometimes don’t do anything is worse than doing it. That’s what the series is all about.
Maybe Zach was scared but I refuse to have compassion on him and minimize what he did, because minimizing what Zach did would be minimize the pain of hannah, and I think we’ve all learned that’s a BIG mistake. Minimizing the pain of others is not good. Zach might have a good heart … or not.
I’ve seen the series already three times and I could not help think: why do y'all overlook the scenes where Zach is a bully? LITERALLY. Zach laughs and encourages Bryce to send the picture of hannah from Justin’s phone, Zach makes obscene gestures along with marcus and the others to Hannah in the hallways after Alex’s list, Zach pushes Clay down the hallway and mocks on him. Zach stoled clay’s bike with Alex and Justin. ZACH AS THE OTHERS KEEP SILENCE ON A RAPIST. Zach continued to be friends with this rapist. Was Zach scared to help Hannah? But not scared enough to bullied others?
Maybe Zach wanted to be a marine biologist and maybe he’s allergic to strawberries. But I’m not interested. Because Zach is no different from the rest. And if Clay had not scratched his car, and if he had not faced Zach, maybe Zach would have done worse things in the future, he would have never felt guilty at all.
If Hannah did not make the tapes or did not include Clay in them, maybe Mr. Porter would never know the truth and ignore other people asking for help or advised them wrong again, and Hannah’s story would be repeated.
Maybe Courtney would continue to pretend to be friends with everyone and use people to cover her homosexuality. And Tyler would continue to spy on people and stalking people through his windows and would continue to take photos and violating the privacy of others if Clay had not faced him and the tapes did not exist, because he would never understand what hannah felt if clay did not make him feels it too.
And Ryan would continue stealing things that do not belong to him and leaving others in ridicule for his own arrogance.
And Clay would never know that it is better to say things when you should and when you have the opportunity because you could save a life.
And nobody would know the importance of what they did and said. And sheri would continue to do bad things and leave them that way that could lead to the death of more people and not just Jeff. And there would be more than one Jeff.
The only one different on the tapes is Clay. So clay had to be in the tapes because otherwise, they would all have continued to live and who knows if the tapes had kept going, maybe Bryce would have burned them and no one would ever know the truth more than they. And maybe he would have even looked for Tony to get rid of the copies or who knows.
Because not even Tony was encouraged to do something when he knew the whole truth Even Tony did not know what to do, just Clay.  
Because it’s easy to stand up and say “Hannah is a bitch she ruined everyone’s life with the tapes”
But what about her life? Who would pay anything for ruined Hannah’s life?
Were all the others supposed to keep living peacefully because Hannah was dramatic and crazy according to them? No.
 Hannah and Clay are the ones who didn’t deserve so much pain throughout history. Then maybe a little bit Alex and Jessica.
But everyone else deserved to be on the tapes and deserved to take responsibility for what they did. And I think Hannah was not dramatic. That’s all. Thank you if you read this mess until the end.

Summary:  After discovering the wonders of Ladynoir fanfiction, Adrien sets out to start his own with his classmate Marinette helping him along the way. But when does fiction start becoming reality?

This story is also beta’d by the wonderful @serendipitousReckonings here on archive, @dickerdoodlez on tumblr.

Chapter 1

Adrien was never the writing type. He did write well - written papers and essays – at least according to his teachers – and was even occasionally asked by a few of his classmates for some writing tips. But, it was for educational purposes only. He‘d never had any sort of passion to write an actual story and he never thought of himself as the imaginative kind anyway. His mind was almost always focused on school, his responsibilities set by his father, and his masked identity. He never really had that luxury of being able to think about anything else. Well, except for his Lady, but that was something entirely different.

Keep reading

Some things abt the flashback scene:

-eren defending armin even tho armin doesn’t care that much

-those bullies stole armins bread :((

-bread that would have fed his family for 3 days?? And eren gets particularly upset over this, as if armin’s family isn’t well off

- we never learn much about armin’s family, but is this flashback from before or after his parents die? Is that why they have fallen in hard times?

-mikasa shoves the food she bought into armin’s hands. I wonder if she was giving it to him after hearing about armin’s bread loss.

-eren shoving armin in the face. Lol

'Outlander' Season 3 Teaser Leaks Online: A Deep-Dive Analysis
The show is set to return in September

“I have lied, killed and broken trust, but when I stand before God I’ll have one thing to say to weigh against all the rest…”

With that one simple but oh-so-passionate line of dialogue, the ongoing Droughtlander became a little less painful Sunday after Starz dropped its first official tease for season 3 of Outlander that was almost immediately leaked online for all those non-Starz subscribers. So much for trying to get folks to tune into the premiere of The White Princess on the west coast!

Was the teaser effective? You bet. Anytime you have a man saying, “Lord, you gave me a rare woman,” you’re going to have the female fans swooning. But there was so much more to whet our appetites, Sassenachs, which is why I’ve decided to take a deep dive into the teaser — because it may be all we’ll get for quite some time. (Can September seem ANY further away?)

How is it possible that one look from Claire can convey anguish, longing, and the sobering realization that she may never see her beloved Jamie (Sam Heughan) ever again? Caitriona Balfe does it magnificently, as she prepares to return through the stones at Craigh na Dun to resume her old life with first husband Frank Randall (Tobias Menzies) in the 20th century.

Hey, this moment should look familiar to EW Readers! In our exclusive first look cover from September, executive producer Ronald D. Moore talks about his plan to re-enact the Battle of Culloden in the opening episode. Our issue also included a first look of Claire walking through the battlefield during an eerie dream sequence. “It just felt like for the TV show, we’ve been promising this for a while and it just felt like we should have something,” Moore told EW of the conflict that was first teased in the season 2 finale between the French-backed highlanders and the British army. “We should give the audience some sense of what happened on that moor.”

Someone’s looking pretty good for her age here! I’ve got a little scoop for you, Outlander fans: Don’t expect Claire or Jamie to look like they’ve aged much in season 3, even though 20 years will have gone by since the lovers last saw each other. “I think they really wanted to not have us change too much,” Balfe tells me exclusively while shooting in South Africa. “The aging has been really subtle. There’s a bit of weathering and stuff that we’ve done, but it’s been very subtle.”

Oh, Sophie Skelton! So great to see you reprise the role of Brianna, Claire and Jamie’s daughter, at the start of season 3. But I fear her appearance in these 20th century scenes with mommy and her adopted dad Frank (Tobias Menzies) will be the extent of her work in the new season. Catch you more in season 4, girlfriend?

Ah, an old movie trope that never gets old — the shot of a hand dragging over the gorgeous flora as a sentimental shout-out to home. The last hot guy to do this so well was Maximus (aka Russell Crowe), as he prepares for death in the final scene of Gladiator.

Okay, so maybe this sight of 20th century Claire rushing through her Boston hospital in scrubs means nothing to the story. But I ask you, Outlander fans, is there anything more exhilarating than the sight of gorgeous medical personnel rushing to an emergency? Look no further than those swell nurses from the title sequence of M*A*S*H*.

Dang, that was quick! After stopping and starting the video at least 15 times, I surmised that it’s probably the moment when Jamie shoots the Earl of Ellesmere after he threatens to hurt a certain child. Out of respect for the non-book readers, I’ll refrain from any further details.

“I’ll find you. I promise.”

Okay, the images threw me for a bit; was Voyager so long that I simply can’t remember this particular scene? Fortunately, a key source who shall go unnamed hinted that it’s most likely a depiction of the Silkies Island, home of the hidden treasure. Apparently, author Diana Gabaldon didn’t explicitly describe the island in her books so it appears this is all from the great minds of Moore and production designer Jon Gary Steele. Whatever; I just liked this part the most because it made me think of Daniel Day-Lewis telling Madeleine Stowe that he will find her, “no matter how long it takes, no matter how far” in The Last of the Mohicans. Be still my heart!

Any other observations from the 30-second trailer? Sound off below!

Outlander returns to Starz in September.

“Smile” thoughts:

  • What a beautiful, gentle episode. The Return of Doctor Mysterio seems like an increasingly apt introduction to the series. And this post, on The Pilot, seems to hold true for now.
  • “Keep smiling” was a grotesque concept, but they never veered off into the full horror of that scenario. It never got close to becoming the “don’t blink” or “don’t breathe” equivalent. If this were a series 8 episode, we’d get close-ups of Clara’s eyes and mouth, as she desperately tried to keep control over herself. But this is series 10 and this is Bill Potts, and for the most part, it serves to underline her happiness, her joy, her excitement.
  • The police box scenes were simple and effective. By chance, my dad picked the BBC Audio (I know basically no one listens to those) “The Gods of Winter” to listen while driving on Friday, and it makes the same observation. In Smile, we can see just how poignant it can get when handled by a much better writer.
  • To have a Doctor resolve 98% of the plot, including parts which Bill could easily have figured out herself (e.g. what was in the pods) was a puzzling choice after the second episode became such a triumphant moment with both Amy and Clara. But since this is Moffat breaking his own formula (through the extension of Frank Cottrell-Boyce), I cannot help but find that is very deliberate.
  • Instead, the Doctor is placed into the role of the tutor and the position of a lecturer, while Bill continues to be his student, reinforcing their dynamic from the Pilot. It works because we see how much Bill loves this and because I know this is still going places…
  • I’m very slowly actually becoming interested in what is in the Vault and Nardole’s story till here.

anonymous asked:

We're not paying enough attention to the fact that when Az and Feyre came back from saving Elain, Az had Elain CRADLED to his chest (while his wings were injured and bleeding) and didn't LET GO until Rhys literally took Elain from him. Not to mention he was in serious need of healing and all he cared about was getting the chains off of Elain. Boi I'm going down with this ship I need them to be canon !! 😩

NO NO NO. I HAVE PAID ATTENTION TO THIS. OKAY?! I HAVE JUST BEEN BUSY/SICK/REREADING FOR FEELS AND CLUES THAT I HAVENT SAID ANYTHING ABOUT IT PUBLICLY. BUT YOU CAN BET YOUR SWEET ASS THAT I CAUGHT THIS! THIS WHOLE SCENE GIVES ME LIFE. BECAUSE AZRIEL WHO’S NEVER TOLD A LIE SAID WITH SUCH CONVICTION “IM GETTING HER BACK.” IT WASN’T A QUESTION, OR AN IM WAITING FOR SOMEONE TO GIVE ME THE OKAY.

IT WAS A GODS-DAMNED DECLARATION!!

HE WAS GOING TO GET ELAIN. HE SAW IT FELT IT VISUALIZED GODS-DAMNED REFUSED TO ACCEPT ANY OTHER REALITY OTHER THAN SAVING HER.

AND THEN we get her ICONIC line “you came for me.” Now that’s right up there next to “there you are I’ve been looking for you.” Those two lines are used OVER AND OVER AND OVER in books and movies all over the place. And you can bet your sweet ass I have laid awake wondering if the Cauldron showed her something about who would save her or something! Because it almost read like she’d had a vision or something. It was odd.

BUT THEN HER FOGGINESS IS GONE. I REPEAT. HER FOGGINESS IS GONE!

LET ME REPHRASE: After Azriel saved Elain, she doesn’t get lost in her visions anymore. She is lucid the rest of the book.

GIVE ME THAT GODS-DAMNED FRIENDSHIP THAT WILL BUILD AN UNBREAKABLE ELRIEL FOUNDATION BECAUSE JAYSUS! I COULD TALK ABOUT THEIR SIMILARITIES ALL DAMN DAY!

[drops mic—but wants to pick it up and keep talking]

Richonniversary thoughts

Remember way back in season 3, when people would laugh at the suggestion that Rick and Michonne might become a couple?

When Michonne bonded with Carl and Judith, she was called a Mammy because it was unfathomable that it was part of a developing love story? 

Remember the romantic piano score played over early Richonne scenes at the prison and how people tried to say it wasn’t romantic lol

I remember talking to @psmith73 about Michonne ships when it seemed like a fantasy that Michonne would actually get a love story in canon but it was fun to think about.

I remember the “oh shit this is really canon” feeling after Clear. I remember the richonne tag celebrating. 

The vindication when some online publication did an article after Clear that was like “OMG maybe those crazy Rick and Michonne shippers are right!” Most of the comments were positive, POSITIVE it would never be anything. 

Remember when it looked like Dixonne might become canon? Remember their runs together and (mostly offscreen) bonding and the jasper and all that? I think Dixonne was bigger than Richonne at one point. I worried about how Daryl fans would react if it happened (I’d been to TWD panels at Wizard World and Daryl stans were the wooorst, the most entitled – sorry, that’s another story). I always rooted for Richonne.

When they started to become a family, and the fandom started seeing them as badass siblings. <eyeroll>

When Rick ripped that Claimer’s throat out with his teeth protecting Carl and it was everything Michonne ever wanted.

When the Grimes family reunited with Judith and the shot included Michonne.

When Rick started looking to Michonne for decisions. When she was the only one he listened to.

More romantic background music.

That dark time we won’t talk about. <Eyeroll> fine, I’ll pretend it was necessary to give Rick closure so he could open himself up to Michonne. Even though it wasn’t. But whatever. At least the whole thing left racists confused and upset.

And then – finally, undeniably canon.

Followed by months of speculation that Michonne was dead (because she had sex with Rick, obvs).

And now, look at them. LOOK AT THEM! Iconic.

Happy Anniversary! <3

Ghost World (2001) - Terry Zwigoff

5 bullets on this film:

  • Let me start this by saying that Ghost World is technically a comedy movie, but it was probably one of the most depressing things I’ve ever seen. Not that it wasn’t good, but it left feeling kind of empty and sad.  Of course there are some ‘funny’ scenes, but the plot is really dark and real. 
  • Steve Buscemi freaks me out but I really liked him in this. Scarlett Johansson is also great, but Thora Birch is like incredible. By the way, where are you, Thora Birch? 
  • It’s one of those films you can watch over and over again and you’ll never get tired of it, because the soundtrack is good, the cinematography is VERY appealing, and you always end up noticing a new detail. 
  • Let’s take a moment to talk about the character development of this movie. All of the characters have a defined personality and a backstory, so they feel very real. You don’t really like them, because they’re imperfect, but then you end up identifying to them, and that’s one of the reasons this movie is so nice.
  • One of the movie’s main ‘targets’ is to show the two sides of growing up: you can be yourself, or you can change your personality in order to fit in, and that’s reality, that’s why this is one of the best coming of age films. The two main protagonists represent different ways of dealing with adulthood, so if you’re about to ‘start your life and become an active member of society’ (like me), watch this movie because it can help you decide what to do with your life. 

More Public Au: So I didn’t really have a story for this Au I just liked to thinking up scenes to draw but while biking I got the idea that in this Au nations have never married, dated, done anything really romantically that didn’t have to deal with treaties, or royal families.

 So when the rumor mill gets started up about that America and England could be dating just because. Citizens from both nations try to encourage it to happen to make history with actions like buying each other goods, vacationing in each other’s nations, talking over social media. Though there are those who don’t like the idea of nations dating (isolationists , homophobs, people who think see the personifications as people and think the public should leave them alone and so on.) 

Though no one knows if the citizens efforts have any effect on the personifications since this is the first time it’s be tired on a significant scale. 

anonymous asked:

Wait so what do you really think of acowar? Enjoyed it, expected it or loathe??

NO SPOILERS!

It was FANTASTIC. Especially in the first ½ of the book. It has everything we didn’t get in the last few books. It’s a powerhouse! And emotionally draining. I mean. Yeah. You’ll know what I mean when you read it.

At the very end, there was stuff that seemed rushed. I’d like to see how the original book ended. The one that sat on her computer for years and years. Cuz this ending was good—don’t get me wrong. But there was some stuff that was just under developed/tacked on. And I think it’s cuz she ran out of time, or she had to adjust the end to accommodate a spin off(s). Some of those adjustments I’m not complaining about.

There is some character stuff with Cassian I’m still trying to figure out. I’m going to reread tomorrow and see. I’m not sure if I think it’s a change in his character or that we just didn’t know him that well in the second book. Idk. I’m not sure…ugh.

There were some cliche names used that just started to bother me. It was like one after the other after the other. But that’s a personal/subjective thing. Not everyone is going to recognize all those names/references.

And there are a FEW things I think Maas is going to get slaughtered for. Stuff I read over and cringed at. And one of the scenes (the one you’re probably thinking about), is….I get why it would be confusing and why you would confess the truth about the lie you’ve been living, then go back on it then confess more then go back on it—I GET IT. And it certainly fits! But, people who’ve never been in that situation, or confessed the truth about a lie they’ve told, are not gonna get it. And some people are gonna hate simply because they think it should have been less confusing and more direct. But…yeah. Pleasing everyone is a fool’s errand.

But honestly. This was a GREAT book. You won’t be able to put it down. It’s one boom after another, and I loved 97% of it. I have a new smol child! More reasons to love Elain and Nesta! We finally learn what a shadowsinger can do! I teared up! I laughed! I jumped off the couch! I cringed—in both a good and a bad way. And yeah. There are some things at the ending I found underwhelming/tacked on/I wish Maas had had more time to write/develop. But it was good. And the stuff that’s bothering me (Cassian) will hopefully be solved when I start my reread tomorrow. @sparkleywonderful spent a good part of the day discussing it so it might just be my unwillingness to accept that he was always this way. Idk.

1, 2, 18 & 20? ❤❤

1. “Describe yourself how you would describe a character you’re introducing.”

I’ll do it from Daryl’s perspective:

“Daryl watched as she heaved the axe blade up into the air and slammed it down into the wood. She swore a little as her thumb hit the edge of the piece as it split. Daryl chuckled as she shoved the thumb into her mouth and sucked on it quickly before getting back to work. Daryl loved her stubborn, fiesty nature. She was always her own boss and didn’t take crap from anyone. 

On top of that she also happened to be just about the sweetest flower he had ever known. She was always protecting the women and children too weak to fight on their own in this crap heap of a world. She did whatever she could to keep people safe, including nearly losing her own life a few times. Daryl didn’t like that she was a fighter sometimes, this world could be too dangerous and he loved her too much to watch her die. He didn’t think he could handle that. He pushed those thoughts from his head and smiled larger as he saw her walking toward him.

She dropped the ax and stared into his eyes with one thing on her mind as she walked confidently over to him. He huffed in awe as he took in the beautiful sight of his strong woman coming back home to his arms. She walked right into this body, wrapped her arms around his back, and pressed against him looking up at him with loving need, “I see you staring, Dixon. Let’s go do all those dirty things you want to do to me.”

With that she let go, grabbed his hand, and winked at him as she pulled him toward their cell…”

(a little mini fic there haha)

2. “Is there any specific ritual you go through while/before/after your writing?”

Right now it is just when I have the time, but usually my ritual includes picking a request or having a fantasy of my own and thinking on it for a few days to a week. My fantasy’s I have to create a story around. For the requests the story is sort of already loosely built so that framework helps.

I usually work on a fic a few chunks at a time it probably takes me 2-3 days (without work) to work on one story. But other than that I have always just been the dive right in type of writer. It usually flows pretty easily, I have always had that *ability* to just type up things without much framework. In fact, the more freedom the better for me. I was always the one leaving a ten page paper till the last minute and throwing it together the night before. lol. 

18. “How old were you when you started writing?”

I used to right some Pacey x Joey fic when I was 16. I would say around 15-16 is when I really started to write. I was really into song lyrics too when I was younger, I wrote a lot of lyrics as well as some fic. This is the first time I’ve written so much smut, I might have written one or two when I was younger but if I did I never published it. 

So Norman/Daryl gets the recognition for me writing this smut and publishing it. That damn man is too hot! Thanks for the smutty inspiration Norman! ;)

20. “ 4 sentences from your work that you’re proud of.”

hmm I have a few scenes I like I’ll share those.

1. All of You Pt 4 [x]

“You feel your entire body screaming with anxiety as your heart races and you force your body forward, dropping out of the truck and slamming your feet onto the pavement. You looked over at Daryl and he puffed his chest out, telling you that you two were strong together and that everything would be okay. Your eyes get harder as you take a deep breathe, square your feet, and turn to look at the man they called Rick.

You stand shoulder to shoulder with Daryl, with his hand over yours, protectively, as you feel and hear the wind whipping around your mangled hair and over your body as it rushes past. You stare into Rick’s eyes and you suddenly feel like you are being examined as his eyes searched yours. You shift awkwardly as his head slightly cocks to the side his eyes still searching yours. You stand there squaring your shoulders and holding yourself dominantly back to the man as your hair whips violently in the wind.

You feel Daryl squeeze your hand, trying to support you, as he stared straight ahead at Rick, same stance as you, awaiting his reaction.”

(I love writing the reader shoulder to shoulder with Daryl, as if they are equals, not her cowering behind him. You probably notice this theme in my stories a lot with the strong female characters)

Dirty Thoughts [x]

“You step outside and you can see the dim streetlight as it emanates down the road of Alexandria. Your boots hit the wooden surface of the deck, as you walk out onto it. You didn’t see Daryl anywhere, you sighed to yourself, and your body slumped down a little.

“Hey Y/N.” You hear his sexy, low growl and turn to your right, where the sound is coming from.

You see Daryl sitting on the bench located all the way at the other end of the deck, in the corner. The light did not reach his shadowy figure and all you saw was the outline of his body and a burning red cherry, coming from his cigarette. It burned hotter as he inhaled, you hear him breathe out and see a plume of smoke coming out from the shadows, as he blew it toward you.

“Hey.” You say, nervously, as you forced your feet to move over to his side of the deck. 

The closer you got the clearer the image of him becomes. He has one of his feet up on the bench, as he sits relaxed, leaning against the back wall of the deck. You move closer and you can see his eyes as they watch you walk slowly over to him, he looks you up and down again, making you almost forget your nerves.”

(I loved the image of him sitting in the shadows and only being able to see his outline and the cherry of his cigarette).

Happy Birthday Daryl [x]

“Suddenly you smile to yourself, “I know what will get you up…” You say to Daryl, who can’t hear you. You shimmy off the bed and grab the sheet that covered you both all night and ripped it off the bed. You stare down at Daryl’s body, down his big bare chest, to his black jeans, all the way down to his legs and his bare feet. He slept with his arms at his sides palms up, his eyes twitched a little as he began to come out of his sleep.

You quickly reached down and unbutton his pants and unzip them. You try and wiggle the pants down his hips from the odd angle you stand at beside the bed. You twist your body and grunt a little bit trying to pull the pants off him.

You hear Daryl clear his throat and freeze your hands on his hips, you slowly look back at him, and see him grinning from ear to ear as he pulls his hands behind his head, looking down at you trying to undress him.

“Somethin’ you need?” He asked cockily smirking and wiggle his hips in your hands.

You smirk and lick your lips, “Actually, it was something I wanted to give you. It’s your birthday after all.” You smile seductively and turn your gaze back down to his pants.

“Damn. Alright.” He said, lifting his hips in the air, “Go ahead, baby.”…”

(omfg can you imagine him walking up to you trying to give him a blow job? Too hot an image so this makes the list!)

4. Teach Me [x]

“Suddenly he moves his body up and over yours, forcing you to lay on your back. You peer at him in shock and watch as he gentle presses his right hand down on your sternum, holding you to the ground.

“What if I were a walker? What would you do?” He asked, as you struggle a little under his hand.

Your eyes close, trying to focus, this was another test. You think back to the training you had been giving and move your left arm up swiftly, pushing it hard against Daryl’s arm restraining you, forcing his grip off you. You roll to your right a few times and force your body to your feet, fists raised.

Daryl rolls over and crawls his way slowly to his feet, swinging his arms, and staring at you, a small smile never leaving his lips.

“Good.” He says as enthusiastically as Daryl Dixon can and he nods his head up at you.

“Now… Come at me.” He raises his arms and juts his fingers up and down, gesturing to you.

You dig your heels into the ground and nod your head, determined to do good. You sprint forward and slam your body into his, using both hands to push him to the ground. You both fall and you land hard on top of him, your hands bracing against his chest. You hear the thud, but neither of you feel the fall thanks to the pure adrenaline running through both your veins. You feel his hands quickly come up to your hips and harshly pull them as he pivots his body around, turning you onto your back and pushing you hard into the ground. You cry out in pleasure, feeling his hands force your body into the ground with so much pressure.

He looks at you and curiously cocks his head to the side, smirking. Had he heard you cry out for him? He stares down at you and you look back at him licking your lips a little as you feel his body straddling yours. You look down at his hips on yours and then stare up into his eyes with longing. He nods and swoops down, crashing his lips onto yours.

You feel his tongue as it grazes harshly across your bottom lip and then across your top, you cry out again and arch your body up into him, opening your mouth to him. You close your eyes and he watches you cry out. He growls and you feel it all through his body as he presses against you, you feel his hips press hard into yours moan again. He plunges his tongue into your awaiting mouth and swirls his tongue harshly around your mouth, capturing your tongue and making love to it. You feel his hand come up and cup the side of your face, pushing you into him harder. You swirl your tongue around his faster in response to his urgency.

He groans a little and presses his hold body onto you even harder, thrusting his hips up into your core, watching for your reaction. You smile a little, your eyes still closed, stopping your tongue for a moment. He smirked and did it again a few more times, watching you come undone a little. Your hair harshly rubs into the grass as you feel his hips grind you into the ground a few times. His tongue swirls around yours a few more times as both of his hands cup your face and pull you into him. He quickly exists your mouth putting a little kiss onto the tip of your nose. He leans up and peers down at you with a mischievous smile.

“What if I were a walker?…” He shifts his weight, pushing his groin into yours holding into you. “…What would you do?” He asked, smirking at you.

You moan a little to yourself, loving the feeling of him pressing himself into you and then look up at him, smiling a devilish smile. In one quick motion you lean your knee up and gently graze his thighs apart from inside them and swirl your body around, pushing him down onto the ground beneath you, your hands pushing his chest down as hard as you could. You breathe heavily as you feel the lust and adrenaline pump through your body. You grind your hips into his a little bit and watch as his eyes turn to you lowly looking like he had a bunch of naughty intentions. His hands grazed up your thighs and roamed to your hips, his right hand moved lower and grabbed the side of your ass harshly. You writhe your hips into him in response, straddling him as the sunset glow appeared on both your bodies.

You look down at him as you grind your hips into his, you feel his throbbing cock beneath his pants and sigh a little in response.

“What are you going to teach me now?” You ask lowly, riding him into the grass.

He smirks and grabs your ass harder, pushing you into him harsher as you grind into him.

“Baby? I got all kinds of things to teach you.” He emphasized your name and you became even wetter.

Suddenly his right hand came back to your hip and both hands swirled you around, his body pushing you both over in another somersault, him landing back on top of you. He grabs your wrists and harshly pushed them both up above your head, holding you into the ground. He positions his legs so he is straddling you, his clothed cock pressing into your core. You writhe up into his hips, staring at him with longing…”

(I love writing these types of smut pieces where Daryl can play roughly with the reader, I think he’d love to be able to push and pull someone around who was just as strong as he is. I loved this entire fic actually a lot of action description with I also love to do).

Honorable Mention - I’m Home Baby [x]

“He slowly climbed in and under the sheet. He laid sideways with his right elbow propping up his body. He stared over at you, now so close to him, he could feel your body’s warmth as he scooted his body closer and closer, until his forearm met your shoulder. He towered over your sleeping face as he slowly reached his left hand over to your body and shoved it under your tank top, landing on your soft stomach. He swirled his hand over your skin, as he looked down at your face, which turned into a smile the minute his skin made contact with yours.

He smiled at you lovingly at your reaction and quickly swooped down to give you an innocent kiss on the nose, before slowly moving his lips down to yours. His lips gave yours a soft, gentle kiss hello, and continued down the side of your neck, leaving kisses all the way up to your ear, meanwhile his hand started to venture north.

“I’m home, baby… Wake up…” He said huskily into your ear, before taking your earlobe into his mouth and biting it a little, trying to awake you.

“Mmmm…” Your mouth and body react to his lips and you slowly start shaking your head, starting to break away from your slumber.

“That’s right, baby… Wake up for me, I need you…” He purred again into your ear, before crashing his lips and tongue down onto the sweet spot behind it, the one he knew you loved.  

He began to suck and swirl around your skin, causing shivers to explode onto it. He smiled at your body’s reaction and bit your neck a little, in reaction. He worked his lips up and down your neck as his hand ventured up toward your breasts, lovingly taking each one of them on thrill ride after thrill ride, trying his hardest to wake you up.

“Oh god!” You groan out as his tongue and his hand work on you, roughly.

Suddenly, your eyes pop open and you notice you are breathing heavily, your heart racing, so fucking turned on. Your eyes squint as they hit  the harsh light from hallway, you close them for a second, blinding yourself. Your brain slowly awakens and you smile to yourself as you begin to feel him all over you. Norman was home. Your confused eyes turn to happiness as your brain slowly identifies his tongue on your neck and his hand on your breasts, your eyes begin to focus and you lovingly reach your right hand over and put it in his hair, gently massaging it as a thank you for his actions.

Norman bites your skin at your touch and swiftly detaches his mouth from you. He leans up and over your face, smiling tenderly down at you with nothing but love and longing.

“Hey, baby.” He said softly as he looked down into your eyes, he was so happy to be home and in your arms again.”

(I really love this one. Imagine Norman trying to wake you up and being so fucking turned out that you were dreaming about him? I could! Love this one and my first ever Norman smut piece!)

I honestly love all the stories it is hard to pick just 4. Thanks for the ask @addiction-survivor25 ! Hope I did it justice! Stay Smutty! haha

Today’s Captain Swan Big Bang Spotlight features @katie-dub!

What is your writing process like?

A mess? Genuinely I don’t have a real process, I just get fic ideas that take over my brain and I find myself composing scenes in the shower / before bed /while walking the dog. Then I sit down to write, forget all those words and the characters tell me what they actually want to do!

What do you think your greatest strength is as a writer?

This is a really hard question for me to answer - I’ve always found that words just flow for me and I’ve never stopped to analyse that. I tend to just get wrapped up in the story and I hope my strength is that I can grab readers by the lapels and pull them along with me. I’m also pretty damn good at sneaking pop culture references into everything I write ;)

What’s a particular trope or kind of story you’ve wanted to try, but haven’t gotten to yet?

I am so wrapped up in modern AUs that I’d like to give a canon divergence - or just a deleted scene - a try.  

Who is your favorite OUAT character to write?

Killian because I love his snark but he’s also very tender hearted and introspective. You get to write some great (I hope!) one liners, but he’s still this multilayered character who’s really interesting to explore.

If you are new to the Captain Swan Big Bang, what made you decide to sign up? What are you looking forward to?

Renée poked me until I came up with a story idea ;) I really liked the idea of having a supportive community to encourage me to keep writing and as soon as I had an idea I wanted to write I was on board!

Favorite Fics:

The Masks We Wear (AO3)

This was my first big story and my first time working with a beta. I love the plot itself and I had a lot of fun with side characters

12 Ways to Make 2017 Your Best Year Ever (AO3)

I really like the conceit of Emma using an article’s monthly challenges to guide her year and I loved showing off my cheesy article writing skills - especially as quite a few readers said that were inspired to try them!

The Perfect Gift (AO3)

I love witty stories and I think this is my funniest one yet - even if it is in a horribly awkward way.

re: irojiro and the guy in kr606: i LOVE them, that's probably my favorite jgv because of their chemistry! it would be pretty great if they were dating, but i never saw anything really confirming that... i did see people saying irojiro and the guy you tag as "K" were a thing once? they had a pretty good video too

omg yes kr606 is the definition of sexual passion,, I can’t for the life of me ever get over those two during the whole scene. they gotta have had a little something somethin going on, the vid’s just downright exceptional

mmh I suddenly saw people calling him Kan so I kinda just roll with it and tag him as “K” rn
you’re saying something though, cause I definitely dig that vid a lot, like it’s bomb 👌 their chemistry is grade a,, but I do think it was more of a lucky combo than anything else, like Kan is generally a really pleasing partner, you know he be loving his job, and you won’t see him half-assing his scenes.. and then,, pair him together with the irojiro dude and you quickly get that 💯 quality💯 
now, of course there might be more to it than that, cus,, then you got the intimate eye contact throughout the entire video,, like the fuck,, and it makes you wonder if it’s more than just a conspiracy theory lol jk

but I honestly haven’t seen any actual confirmation on those two so for me it’s basically  ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Newmann Wedding
  • S: The tabloids when newt and hermann actually get married. "The two elusive 'doctors of the drift' get hitched"
  • L: A really unflattering photo of newt side by side with an actually very decent one of hermann: "Drift Compatible? "
  • L: Newt threatens to buy all the copies and have them destroyed, Hermann buys one copy and has it framed
  • S: "Look they got you at your best, newton."
  • L: "I'm asking for all of the residuals from your publications in the prenup, asshat"
  • S: Hjshdjfjdu hermann and newt at the afterpart of their wedding, newt with his tie all loose (it was nice for once) and looking rumpled and tired, drinking gross champagne. "Why are so many people here?" "Newton we're somewhat famous." "Yeah but not popular."
  • L: Okay okay okay but sometime near the end of the war i can see them just sort of quietly filing for a marriage license "just in case" only they never bother telling anybody about it bc at the time it feels so frivolous
  • L: Afterwards when they are going to be having a proper wedding Newt makes a lot of public melodramatic statements about "making an honest man out of me"
  • S: Theyre probably legally married long before the wedding, "just in case" for the same reason. If one of them fuckin bites it they dont want to be given the runaround. Finally after the war theres time for a wedding, and now theyve saved the world and colleges who hated them are now playing nice (snidely)
  • L: Newt tipsy and happy at the reception, "I don't recognize most of you people but I'm glad we're not all dead and you're welcome and thanks for coming"
  • S: Just. The two of them bonding over making shitty comments to eachother about their wedding guests and party crashers and how this whole thing stopped being in their control the moment they elected mako as their best man and max as the maid of honor.
  • L: YES MAX
  • L: Good
  • S: It would have been chuck but hes very much so dead and they cant get herc into a dress and newt vetoed raleigh taking his place.
  • L: Tendo declines with "always a bridesmaid never a bride"
  • S: "Tendo, man, youre married" "and i wasnt a bride."
  • L: Imagine the two of them hiding in a storage closet with their ties undone, tears streaming down their faces and biting their hands to suffocate their hysterical loony laughter over how SURREAL this whole scene is
  • L: Like a year ago nobody gave a shit about them and now their in grocery checkout lane magazines
  • S: Newt offhandedly having a panic attack the entire time while hermann steadily gets shitfaced on disgusting champagne that everyone hates but wont stop drinking. Mako has eaten so many of those little candies that she drops wrappers on the floor when she pulls a packet of tissues out of her pocket. Max has eaten more cake than chuck would have and everyone finds this commendable. Raleigh keeps trying to dance with mako who keeps steering hermann away from the alcohol. Theres speeches, theres not one single good speech. Hermann knows like ten of the 100+ attendees and newt knows less.
  • L: Newt slips the dj $20 to play Run To The Hills when he and Hermann arrive at the reception
  • L: Hermann VERY drunkenly toasts "my gorgeous dreadful ridiculous husband" in bavarian german

Regina gets Henry, her apples, the dwarves bowing down to her (not to mention her other half gets a proposal).

Snowing gets the Volvo and the farmhouse. Snow gets her birds and her classroom; Charming his dog.

Rumple gets– ok I don’t know what Rumple gets because I skipped over those scenes.

And Emma gets her bug, riding off into the sunset because A&E had this image ingrained in their minds of the police light on the roof 👍 never mind that she’d actually talked about a white picket fence life? (Like how hard would it have been to have had them drive up to the house in the bug with the police light on the roof, and like, I dunno, walk up the stairs, with Killian fingering his new badge tentatively until Emma notices and grabs his hand and kisses his knuckles, then they take a last look out over the town before slipping inside to make pancakes for breakfast, lunch and dinner, with the door shutting softy behind them?)

And last but not least… we’ve got Killian Jones, who isn’t really allowed to get anything, because his everything is Emma Swan and he needs no other interests. The Jolly what now?

And you know what, I have to give this moment to Crystal over the original anime.

I don’t remember anything quite like this in the original (could be wrong, and correct me if I am) - we have a few ‘wow, Usagi and Chibiusa sure are alike’ and a couple of 'aw, look, Chibiusa really does love/look up to Usagi after all’, but it’s so overshadowed with the over the top bickering and squabbling that’s played up for laughs, that those few moments don’t really do a lot for me.

I love this. I love Chibiusa who’s clearly going through her own little thing here of feeling insecure and like she’s never going to live up to her mother’s greatness, having this little scene of seeing her mother’s younger self and realising that she wasn’t always a great and powerful queen - that she was immature, a crybaby and always getting into trouble….it’s nice. It’s nice for Chibiusa, and it’s nice for their relationship.

Really loving the Crystal version of Chibiusa. I’m still very fond of the original version, and I’ll never understand the hate she gets (god, the anti-Chibiusa websites. Remember those?), but I’ve got to say that this one here is my favourite little pink-haired future princess.
