Bum felt incredibly uncomfortable with Sangwoo’s gaze on him, surveying the way his skin paled against his mother’s bra, fresh bruises and blood blossoming on his skin, and how his skinny legs were shaking as Sangwoo pumped the dildo in and out of him. It hurt, it hurt so much, and he felt like he was going to die of embarrassment as Sangwoo spewed dirty words and insults at him. But Sangwoo seemed to be enjoying this a lot, so he kept his brave face on for Sangwoo. Because the consequences could be deadly if he complained.

YAAAYYY I FINISHED IT!!!! Fuck I’m not sure if this is the best so when I get to 1.5k I’ll write a better one… maybe with the Role Reversal AU where Bum is the killer? :0

I'm really into writing and I would love to write wrestling things. Do you think you could give a few pieces of advice and some pointers? 🤞🏽🤞🏽

Originally posted by la-vida-con-rock-lml

Oh my wow, like.. Of all the thousands of better writers on here, I’m honored that you asked me t his question and I really hope i can help you or say something that maybe inspires you a little! But seriously, I’ll tag friends that I know knock their writing out of the park at the end of this, just so that you can also get their input as well.. Because I’m kind of a doofus and I ramble. A loooot. But seriously, I am sobbing tears of like… Joy? right now.

My biggest piece of advice, lovely anon, is that writing is something you have to enjoy. Don’t ever force yourself to write something if your heart isn’t in it. If a story feels rushed, stop it and go work on something else or play video games / clean, whatever. If you’re given a request you don’t feel up to writing or doesn’t interest you, do not be afraid to turn it down, also.  When a story is rushed and you don’t want to write it, the readers can tell in the tone of the words or the way you just skim through and they’ll lose interest also. 

Do not be afraid to reach out to other writers and bounce ideas off of them. It’s scary as hell, buuut. A fresh pair of eyes is always helpful when writing something. And you’d be surprised what having someone else to talk to about your ideas brings to life for you. And you meet amazing people and make amazing friends this way too! I know I have!

You might start a story with one clear goal in mind but… The story will more than likely deviate and begin to tell itself. Don’t be afraid to let that happen because when that happens, then it feels more natural. Just trust me.. When a story and it’s characters begin to write themselves, it makes things interesting.

Space out your paragraphs. Don’t just write one long wall of text. It overwhelms the reader and more often than not, they will skip right over it. Big and meaty paragraphs are fine but don’t just smoosh everything together, there has to be some  degree of seperation. When you’re doing dialogue, you can change a paragraph with each new speaker, that helps. It is also a lot less confusing.

That’s all I can really offer, so now, I’m going to tag writers I admire and let them put their own input. Also, I can’t wait to read what you write, lovely anon, I hope you’ll tag me in it?

Tagging: @mimicthephoenix @writergrrrl29 @lavitabella87 @wwe-smutfics ( who is brilliant, even if we’ve never actually spoken before) @concussed-to-pieces ( again, another brilliant one, even though we’ve never spoken before) and @fan-fiction-galore as well as @helluvawriter aaaaand @hiitsmecharlie and @wwesmutdonedirtcheap and @wwesmutvillains !!!

Title: Flightless bird

Fandom: D.Gray-man

Rating: Gen

Characters: Howard Link & Allen Walker, Kanda Yuu

Additional Tags: Heavy on the introspection, Allen Walker deserved better than regret, implied slash maybe?, take it as you will

Notes:  I haven’t been able to get this out of my mind since I first saw Allen’s stats. The poor boy keeps losing weight and growing taller - does he eat enough now? Sleep enough? Is he okay? Knowing Hoshino, the answer to all of that is probably ‘no’.

Who is Allen Walker?

Allen Walker, approximately fifteen years old, Exorcist - parasite type Innocence - and host for the Fourteenth Noah.

When Link receives this assignment those are the only words printed neatly on Walker’s file. It is up to Link to fill in the rest, to provide Central with the person behind the name.

Lawlicht fanfiction: Jealousy

The continuous sound of someone kicking an object could clearly be heard across the hall. Licht followed it, curious what could be the cause of the noise. Licht knew pretty well the specific room from where the sound was being emitted. The piano room. He wondered who the hell even went there. Couldn’t be Krantz or Guildenstern. Those two were out of the apartment, probably off buying grocery or something. Not like he cared. But now Licht’s list of suspects was narrowed down to one. “The shit rat,” he murmured. But the demon never took interest in wanting to learn the piano. No, the bigger problem was the fact that the noise produced was surely not of a piano playing but of something being wrecked. Licht ran through the corridor wishing what he predicted was not what had actually happened. Licht opened the door with a slam and a yell “shit rat” following afterwards. A high shriek was heard from the blond vampire as he stopped his kicking. “What the hell do you think you’re doing, damn demon?” Licht questioned as he slowly approached the vampire. “L-L-Lich-tan, what are you doing here? I thought you were out with Krantz and Guil.”
“Didn’t you hear my question?” Licht raised an eyebrow.
“Ah me? Um, I was -you know- just..um messing around… spending some time on the stage practicing some lines for a drama. Yeah practicing lines…..” Lawless was literally shivering from fear while answering. That was more than enough for the raven haired boy to figure out something was wrong. Licht gave Lawless a questioning glance as he made his way towards the piano and examined the place which was dented pretty badly by Lawless’s kick. “So….what were you doing with the piano? Some scene from the drama where you’re supposed to kick the shit out of the first obstacle you see in front of you?!?!”
The vampire scratched the back of his head as a blush appeared on his face and he dipped his face. “Yes- I mean no. No. Of coarse not. Its just that…” Licht was really starting to get annoyed at his Servamp’s odd behaviour. He leaned in closer to the Servamp so they were looking eye-to-eye. Licht’s icy blue eyes bore holes in Lawless. The blush, which was already visible enough, deepened its colour. “Too close,” Lawless thought as he took a step back and diverted his eyes from Licht’s. But the human didn’t back down either. Instead, he grabbed Lawless’ head and yanked him towards himself till their lips were just centimetres apart and both could feel the warmth of the breath of the other’s. But now Lawless had no way to escape or back away.
“Okay okay okay. I’ll tell you the truth. Just….get back a bit. You’re too close,” Lawless answered, his eyes diverted from the human’s. Licht backed away almost immediately and a cute flush of pink made its way on the tips of his ears. Licht cleared his throat trying to distract his mind from what Lawless just said and to the question in demand. “Finally ready to confess whatever crime you did demon?”
“Crime? Its not anything ‘evil.’ Its just that…” Lawless paused, angering his Eve even more.
“Well say it already,” Licht snapped.
“Oh its just that…. Prepare yourself Lawless. Deep breath. Deep breath.” Lawless had started to monologue.
Licht rolled his eyes at his Servamp’s reaction. But resisted the urge to kick the latter to tomorrow. Lawless after taking a deep breath and mumbling something about regretting telling Licht this, finally spoke. “I hit that piano cuz I was jealous of it. There I said it.”
Licht blinked his eyes in confusion. “Excuse me, c-could you repeat that?”
“I said I was jealous of the damn piano because you spend more time on it than with me. So I was just eliminating my rival in love.” There was a moment of silence before Licht finally burst into laughter. His voice filled the hollow and empty auditorium they were standing in. It was rare to see the angel even smile but he was laughing right now. Lawless didn’t know if he should feel proud that he could finally make the stubborn human laugh, or embarrassed at the fact he was laughing at was his jealousy of a non-living object.
“Um, Licht-tan?”
Licht was too engrossed in his laughing that he didn’t hear his Servamp’s words. He was laughing hard enough to make tears come out of his eyes and struggle for breath.
“Come on, its not that funny!!” Lawless complained with a pout on his face.
Licht took a glance at his Servamp before bursting into a laughing fit again. “Licht-tan! I’m serious.”
It took like 5 minutes or so for Licht to stop laughing and finally calm down a bit. But even now the taunting tone and grin was still up on his face. “ Now THAT was an experience for me. I haven’t laughed that much in years. Congrats shit rat.” With that, Licht gave a fake pitiful look and patted the vampire’s shoulder. Lawless just pouted further and complained. “Lich-tan! I can’t believe you just laughed at my confession.”
“That was a confession?” Licht clamped a hand down his mouth to muffle the snort of laughter that escaped his mouth afterwards.
“Angel-chan. I’m serious.” Lawless backed Licht against the wall and locked his crimson-eyes with Licht’s azure ones. Licht averted his gaze and tried to push Lawless away from himself. All but in vain. The Servamp had decided not to move an inch till his confession was answered. Licht’s face was getting warmer and warmer every second that passed and the cute pink colour on his cheek was evolving into something darker.
“W-W-What are you doing?!?!” Licht was stuttering his words. It seemed as if the heat was getting to his head. “I.Want.An.Answer.Now.” The very next moment Lawless found his lips sealed by the angel’s.
“His eyes are closed,” Lawless observed. The kiss lasted for only a second but it made Lawless heart thump hard enough to reach his ears.
“I-Is that good enough of an answer?” Licht said elbowing the other, just soft enough to be felt. With that, Licht stuffed his hands in his jacket’s pocket and shot towards the exit door but was caught by an immediate hug from behind. “My angel’s the cutest!!” The blush reappeared on Licht’s face and he kicked the vampire across the room and left the room mumbling “Stupid Hyde..”

enchancer-transmuters-love  asked:

Ok so I saw that submission thing about the jacket prompt and saw the tags that you've put in about HS au where Gon gives the jacket to Killua. Now imagine Gon being a jock and Killua has secretly been crushing on him & is a complete dork and [ 1/2 ]

watches Gon from afar like an idiot but then one day he bumped into Gon on their way to the dorm and he hands his jacket to Killua then everyone stares at them like because this I’d GON FREAKING FREECSS AND IS NOW DATING SOMEONE THAT IS KILLUA [2/2]

AH you read my tags with the jacket prompt I reblogged? XD I kind of just rambled with that but its such a good prompt its hard not to come up with something for it haha

This killugon au idea you sent me is soooo cute!!! I can definitely see Gon being some form of a jock bc he’d probably be in a lot of different sports for the excitement of it all lol. And he’s very charismatic so pple like Gon. Killua would totally be more into the academic aspect and more of a loner, probably bc of his family pushing him to get perfect grades or something like that…

And the whole entire school would explode to see Gon giving Killua his jacket bc they’re in two different ‘cliques’ and jocks do not mix with pple like Killua, and Killua would explode too from sheer mortification XDDDD

Thank you so much for sending me this, I couldn’t stop smiling when I pictured the whole scenario! (I’m sorry it took so long to respond though today was crazy for me ^^;)

I’m really getting irritated by the amount of Amourshippers leaving anonymous reviews on my latest one shot.

My story is very clearly labeled as Pokeshipping. It is posted in the Pokeshipping category. Serena is not even TAGGED as a main character in the story, because she’s not. I’ve been adding to that one shot collection for almost 6 years now. I write short little one shots because I love it, and it’s my main stress reliever. The fact that I can share them with other people is fun too!

But honestly, I seriously don’t appreciate having Amourshippers contacting me about how wrong I am for not shipping THEIR ship. There are plenty of Amourshipping stories around to read, so why these people are wasting their time sending me message after message about how superior Amourshipping is, is beyond me.

At this point, I’m thinking it might be best to just eliminate Serena and all other XY characters from my stories from this point forward. I have never bashed any of those characters or other ships, and have written them as Ash’s very good friends who are well respected and accomplished. Yet I’m still dealing with rabid XY stans who are literally jumping on me for not being 100% in love with the series and for writing a Pokeshipping story…even though it’s been in existence for as long as it has.

I’ve never dealt with this from any other fans or shippers, so to me this is kind of surreal and honestly stupid. But right now, I would say don’t expect to see any further additions featuring XY characters. Having to delete all of the anonymous reviews that are contributing nothing to me growing as an author is tiring and monotonous, so I’d rather just end that now.

This was fun! Thanks for tagging me! I tag: @writingwithcatears @writinggalactic @vjhanson @zombie–writer @elvwrites and anyone else who wants to do this!

      LIKE for a pre-established relationship with Kida.

Pretty much this is for, well, multiple good reasons..! Like avoiding repetitive first-interaction rp and having a more diverse entourage and interacting more y’know..!

So if you like this I’ll send you a message (or tag you in a post if you prefer) where I’ll write pre-established relationship headcanons based on your muse and we can discuss about around it..!
For multimuse blogs, if you don’t message me about a particular muse, well I guess I’ll just take a random one? owo
As for verses, unless on request, the verses will be set in the main verse.

What are being looked for in general are…

Dates. Now Kida never take dates very seriously, it’s mostly hanging out with cute girls with nothing overthinking it. He likes to have a good time and give a good time. The maximum you could get on those casual dates is a kiss. This would be for mostly outgoing and cute girls. Since in general Kida has not much interest to very introverted girls.

Childhood friends. Since, well, always, Kida has always been a nice guy with a sense of adventure. Although he was closest to Mikado, he had his own friends with who he bonded. This would be mostly for guys living or who had lived on the countryside ― since Kida actually had zero delicacy to hang out with girls as a kid in general (unless she was a tomboy of some sort).

High school buddies (or not). After moving to Ikebukuro, Kida was still as outgoing as ever so of course he made friends with people at school. This would mostly be for average young people, be they hated or loved.

Yellow Scarves. The Yellow Scarves, although more controlled now (in main verse) were an open gang, meaning any kid who wanted to join could as long as they listened and followed the group. Whether they just joined or have been there in a long time, the Scarves are like a big, wild and loyal family. Though they are in the great majority males, they do accept females. In main verse, the Yellow Scarves are here to control the streets of Ikebukuro and make sure nothing too fishy goes around without disturbing the yakuzas’ business. This would mostly be for more rebellious and/or lost characters from any background, looking for a new identity or a new purpose. REFER HERE AND HERE.

Rivals & Enemies. The Yellow Scarves aren’t the only ones on the streets. If someone wants competition, Kida would probably just laugh it off, but on the streets and/or when his friends are at stake, this is serious business and spark would seriously be fllying and the shogun would do anything to protect his loved ones, even give up his own sake. This would mostly be for evil and/or threatening characters with experiences in doing mischiefs.

“Guardians”. After knowing Kida for a while, it’s not sorcery to notice that the kid isn’t 100% clean. Some might just want to put him on the right track, the underground world is “wrong” afterall. They would want maybe to take him in, teach him something… have some sort of interest in Kida. This would mostly be for adults characters who are good and/or lawful.

“Partners in crime”. As Kida works as Mikado’s right hand (in OURS IS THE FURY verse), he builds himself his own network, although most of what he does goes by this man he hates so. This makes him encounter a number of shady or less shady people in search of information of some sort, or simply because Mikado met them. Most of the time, they probably never talked personally to Kida but only a few times, to be polite. This would mostly be for adult characters in general.

Coincidences. For some reason, we see each others all the time. On the street, at the café, at the convenience store, in the middle of the night when I want to take a walk… maybe we should talk? Misc.

If you would feel better in any category IM message me I don’t bite! : )

Oml this is too much XD

Let’s talk about Yang and Sun as characters

So, I ain’t touching that shipping discourse with a ten foot pole because it is pointless and dramatic and y’all need to calm your tits, but I do think we need to discuss the differences between Yang and Sun as characters and how they relate to Blake, because I feel like there is some fundamental misunderstandings here that are vastly contributing to the problem.

First and foremost, neither Sun nor Yang should ever be labeled as abusive because they are not. Adam Taurus is abusive. Adam drove Blake to some very dark and scary places in her life because of his abusive behavior. He was obsessed with her in and unhealthy and possessive way and did not care about her well-being. Yang and Sun are both good people who would never hurt Blake on purpose and even when they do incorrect things in regards to how they treat her it always come from a place of concern for her.

Secondly, one of the big arguments I’m hearing lately in regards to the way they each interact with Blake is that if the characters positions were reversed then people would be having the opposite reactions. Like people saying that if Yang had followed Blake everyone would be praising it as romantic and if Sun had been the one to convince Blake to come out to the dance everyone would be calling him pushy or bad. Except here’s the thing that’s wrong with that line of discussion. It operates under the idea that Yang and Sun are the same kind of character personality wise. And they are not. At all.

See, Sun’s character is the kind of person that people think Yang’s character is, and Yang’s character is something else all together.

Sun is loud and friendly and a little clueless. He takes an interest in people and genuinely cares about them, but he looks at everything through his own world view without necessarily taking other people’s feelings into consideration and as a result he can come off as sort of obnoxious. He’s a big stupid sweetheart. Does he want to help? Absolutely. Does he know how best to do that? Absolutely not. This is what makes him a good foil for Blake, in that he absolutely doesn’t get her at all and it results in hilarious misunderstandings that are totally harmless but still drive her a little crazy. Certain people are taking that cluelessness as malicious in some way, and that’s how we’re getting this weird misconception that he is “abusive.” People think he is willfully ignoring Blake’s wishes, when what is actually happening here is that he legitimately doesn’t get it. He doesn’t get that Blake might want to go on this personal mission home by herself because his life’s motto is that “You should always get friends involved.” He just sees his friend putting herself in a sad and scary situation alone and wants to support her. He doesn’t understand why she might not want his support because it clashes so much with his personal world-view. He always has Blake’s best interest at heart, but sometimes he goes about helping her in a way that just kind of irritates her.

Yang is a whole other story. Yang is loud and friendly too, but the key difference here is that she is keenly aware of other people’s feelings and behaves accordingly. She recognizes that Blake has limits when it comes to personal interactions and the like, and so she handles her more gently than she might with someone else. She still pushes her outside her comfort zone with things like bear hugs because she’s trying to help her grow, but she does it in little ways rather than pushing her all out at once because she sees that wouldn’t help. She wants to help Blake, but she wants to do it at Blake’s preferred pace. Which is good, and it allows the two of them to grow close gradually. But it’s also means that she can be a bit too cautious sometimes. Yang’s careful observation of other’s behavior does come from her desire to help people, but it also comes from her own fear of rejection. She waits and observes and reacts accordingly because she’s scared that if she pushes too hard people will leave her. Blake recognizes and appreciates that Yang gives her space and let’s her handle things at her own pace, but she doesn’t realize the other reason why she does it. She doesn’t realize that by running away she is hurting Yang, because she’s so wrapped up in her own fears that she can’t recognize Yang’s. And Yang does the same, viewing Blake’s running as a form of rejection due to her own issues, rather than recognizing it as part of Blake’s issues.They are both caring, considerate people who have deeply rooted emotional issues that they need to work through, and that’s why they play off of each other so well. They respect each other’s problems, but are so wrapped up in their own problems that they can’t always help each other.

So now, with all this in mind, let’s go back to the original hypotheticals I addressed there. We’ll go chronologically and start with the Burning the Candle scenes.

The idea here is that if Sun had tried to convince Blake to come out to the dance in the way Yang had, people would view his actions as pushy and inappropriate, instead of sweet and heartfelt as they were with Yang. The problem with that idea is that Sun wouldn’t have tried to help her the way Yang did. He didn’t understand why Blake was upset and thus he couldn’t have talked her through her issues the way Yang did. And if he somehow did understand, he wouldn’t have dealt with it the same way. He wouldn’t have shared a personal experience and tried to use that to help her understand how she was hurting herself. He would have told her that there was no point in worrying about stuff she can’t change and just joked around with her in an attempt to make her feel better. And as a result, it likely wouldn’t have worked.

Then there’s this idea that if Yang had followed Blake onto the boat against her wishes people would think it was sweet and romantic, instead of clueless and mildly irritating as it was with Sun. But again, the problem with this idea is that Yang wouldn’t do that. If Yang had seen Blake leave and had the opportunity to follow her, she wouldn’t have. And it wouldn’t be because she respects Blake’s choice, or because she wanted to give her space to deal with her own issues. She wouldn’t have followed because she would have viewed it as a rejection. Why is Blake leaving? Did I do something wrong? Why would she leave me without saying anything? I must have messed up, because why else would she be running? She wouldn’t have realized that Blake was running because she was scared, because she would have internalized the abandonment immediately and viewed herself as not good enough to be around Blake anymore.

Bottom line: The idea that the fandom would react differently if the roles were reversed is a fallacy, because the roles between Yang and Sun can’t be reversed in any situation. They are fundamentally different characters, and the idea that they would do the same things in the same situations is just nonsense. They serve different purposes in Blake’s life, different purposes in the story. You can’t just flip the script without changing the entire story.

It seems like half the issues from the two sides of this fandom hate seem to stem from the idea that these two characters are interchangeable in some way and that the only difference between them is their gender, but that couldn’t be further from the truth. They are completely different people who serve completely different roles in Blake’s story. They are both there to help her grow, but in different ways. To think any differently is honestly disrespectful to all three of them and to the work that has been put into them as characters.

Stop treating Sun like a bad character, stop treating Yang like a bad character, and (to quote a completely different fairy tale) stop treating Blake like she’s a prize to be won in all of this.
