Robron fandom ramble

I’ve been feeling a little overwhelmed with the Robron / Emmerdale fandom lately. It’s like I’m actually overwhelmed by how many talented people we have in this fandom (not necessarily in a bad way - it’s a good problem to have, really) - it’s like nothing I’ve ever really seen before.

My previous fandom was a lot smaller, and while there were many great people within it once upon a time, there weren’t many “voices”. There were probably only a handful of people who actually spoke about stuff (myself included), and everyone who did speak had pretty specific styles and voices and each of us seemed to have a role, which balanced things out. There was something for everyone, really, and the fact that there were so few of us who actually had things to say made it all so manageable, if that makes sense.

With this fandom it’s different. There are SO MANY people here, and so many who are just…..amazing. I don’t feel like there are any “big names”, or fandom “celebs” - I feel like there are too many amazingly talented people for those kinds of labels.

There are the people that make insane gifs and edits and artwork, there are the people that write beautiful fanfic and headcanons and meta and some wonderful freaks of nature who can do all of those things. There are those that theorise and can look back over episodes with such care and attention, there are those that speculate and are positive and level-headed and those who, even when having a total fangirl moment writing all in capital letters freaking the fuck out, can still write so wonderfully, can put a point across so beautifully, without even trying.

Whether it’s just a small text post with just one little paragraph (or even one sentence!) or a huge essay about Aaron or Robert or their relationship or the show in general, the level of talent displayed in this fandom literally blows my fucking mind.

It is a privilege to be a part of, but at the same time it makes me question my place here, it makes me feel like a drop in the ocean, it makes me a little insecure, because in my old fandom I was one of a few, my voice was loud because nobody was really shouting with me, but now I don’t really have a role, there are people far more talented than me, and sometimes I think of something to say but I see someone has said the same thing, albeit in a much briefer, purer, simpler yet wonderful way, or someone has said it with far more depth and beauty than I feel I could ever convey, and it makes me feel a little insignificant, which is hard when coming from a fandom where, for some time, I was considered quite significant.

And I know these are my own insecurities, my own paranoia, and it’s not a competition, and nobody has ever done anything to make me feel this way; if anything, people have been nothing but lovely, kind and encouraging towards me, people have been supportive or things I have written (actually, I have also been totally overwhelmed by how well-received some things I have written have been), and I feel like I’ve made some pretty great fandom-pals here, on all kinds of levels; I adore that one minute someone can be having a silly little “war” over a ship name, and the next they can be writing something serious and beautifully poetic, that we can all go from daft and fun and fangirly one minute to serious and mature essay-writers the next.

It’s amazing. I adore how versatile everyone is. I love how talented everyone is. Sometimes I can only sit back in awe, scroll through my dash and reblog the living crap out of all of these epic posts, whether they’re a funny little text/gif post or a mammoth essay about where a storyline is going, or a beautifully put together gif-set or an amazing piece of art.

Sometimes it actually BLOWS MY MIND. And as I said before, it’s like nothing I’ve ever experienced in any fandom I have ever been in.

I was on the fringes of the Robron/Emmerdale fandom from the very start, as I’ve been on tumblr since 2010 (I DON’T KNOW HOW EITHER) and would search #Emmerdale now and then to see if there was anything (answer: there was always literally nothing until Robron was born). It took a while for me to properly throw myself into the fandom myself and use my own voice; for so long I was just a reblogger, who contributed nothing of my own (and there is nothing wrong with that, fans/fandom members like that are just as valid) - I’m someone who has never liked to spread myself too thin and at the time I was clinging to my old fandom and still trying to make an effort within that, even though it was dying and I wasn’t particularly happy there, but I’m loyal to a fault and it took me a while to let go.

And honestly, falling deeply into this fandom, just becoming brave enough to use my voice and say what I wanted to say about characters and a show I have loved for more than a decade, was the best thing I have done in recent years. At first I felt out of place; all the fans seemed really new (which I thought was amazing but also a little intimidating) and I was genuinely insecure that people wouldn’t like me because I’d been around the show long before Robron (in hindsight I could see that was totally stupid of me to think that, but paranoia/insecurity is a fun thing lmao) but I was amazed at how quickly people welcomed me and even reached out to me and made an effort with me - and how there were plenty of older fans, just like me, too.

And it’s been quite some time now since I’ve been in deep, and I feel like I know so many of you even though not all of us have spoken about too much outside of our amazing show and ship.

What I’m trying to say is, you’re all fucking amazing, and I appreciate every one of you. Whether you’ve been watching the show for 48248 years or 3 months, you’re fucking awesome.

I get overwhelmed because I want to follow everyone, but I’ve always been scared of following too many people and then missing stuff because my dash is too busy. I’ve been on tumblr almost 7 years and I still only follow 394 people (and tbh, I reckon at least a hundred of those are since the Robron fandom was born) - and yet every day it seems like a new name pops up, having written something amazing, and I’m like “where did you spring from?!”, and I have to give them a follow, and it’s like…..WOW.

I could tag a whole bunch of people who I find ridiculously amazingly talented but I’d be here all fucking day, and I couldn’t possibly list everyone, and then I’d feel bad for everyone who I’d missed so….I won’t.

So as arse-kissy as this post might sound, I just want to say a giant THANK YOU to everyone who contributes to this fandom, on any scale, in any capacity….thank you. And thank you to those that follow me too; it makes me feel genuinely proud and I know it’s something I really need to hang on to when I’m feeling down on myself. All your kind words mean more to me than I could ever properly express and I need to hold onto that forever because sometimes I really, really need it.

So…..there were are. Keep doing what you’re all doing. Know that even if I give your post a reblog without saying anything too profound in response, whether in a reply or a message or even a tag (writing stuff in tags on reblogs to someone’s post is so important!!), just know it’s because I’m probably just feeling overwhelmed by how fucking awesome I think you are.

I have no idea where this has come from really, apart from this is just how I’ve been feeling lately, but in a nutshell….I love you. I love all of you. Even if I haven’t agreed with everything you’ve said, I still probably love you. I respect all of you. I’m overwhelmed and intimidated by all of your talents. Thank you for being amazing. KEEP DOING WHAT YOU’RE DOING. Keep this fandom the best fucking fandom I’ve ever been in. Keep spreading the love and the positivity and the excitement, because by god, the next month or so of life in this fandom is going to be WILD and I’m so happy to be here going on this ride with you.

As always with my long posts; if you get to the end, thank you. This only makes me love you all the more.

IronFalcon: it's probably been done a lot, but I really love those fics where Tony and Sam knew each other before the Avengers, from EXO-7... And when Sam disapproves of how Steve treats Tony and actually protects Tony from the Avengers... Btw, do you think it's possible for Sam to put his wings around Tony? Gosh, I love it when his wings are a big thing in a fic. Sorry it's kinda disjointed, I'm just throwing out ideas.

It has been done a lot, because I am doing most of the IronFalcon fics, and I love that concept. Just as Sam actually punching Steve for being an asshole to Tony, which I also have written. It doesn’t happen in here, but Sam is not happy with Steve. And the wing idea, my god, Anon, that is a beautiful picture and it comes a bit short in here, but I love that and it will probably feature in most of my stories from now on.

So I tried to bring everything into this story that you mentioned, and it got spectacularly out of hand, so watch out for the cut since this comes in at just over 5k.

“Wilson, I hear you are the best. If you kill my babies I will end you,” Tony greeted the other man when he entered the room.

He was met with silence and an assessing look before Wilson stuck his hand out. “Tony Stark?” he asked and Tony took the hand.

“The one and only.”

“It’s a pleasure to meet you.”

“You only say that because you’re about to fly,” Tony gave back and then gave Sam the once over. “Though it sure as hell would be a pity if something else wasn’t pleasurable today as well,” he said with a little leer and Sam raised an eyebrow at him.

“Your reputation precedes you. I have been warned.”

“Ah, don’t listen to the news, angel. They are all liars.”

“I am wounded,” Rhodey said from behind Tony and Tony actually jumped a bit. He hadn’t even seen Rhodey there.

“Honeybear, how am I supposed to pick people up, if you warn them off?”

OMG I can't tell you how happy I am that you opened up your request box again! I love your writing so I'm so excited to finally request something from you! BTS written reaction to their Asian adopted sister that's not Korean saying she feels like throwing up (queasy/butterflies in stomach) because she's so stressed and anxiety isn't helping with school work and learning Korean at the same time and she just needs someone to comfort and understand her emotionally. Thank youuuu <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3

OMG this is long! Hope you enjoy it! <3 

Jimin would instantly become so worried that you wouldn’t be able to do anything for the rest of the day without him appearing in front of you and telling you that whatever you’re doing he can do it for and that you should just rest a little. He would even make you something to eat  not without a few crashes in the kitchen though and would bring it to you in bed. After you eat he would lie there with you asking to hear about what’s troubling you but he would be more focused on making you forget about the stress and getting to hear your laugh again  which you surely do after his passionate performance of ‘’Up&Down’’ Expect him not leaving you alone for a whole day!

Namjoon would make sure you don’t do anything that might trouble you more or make you even more stressed that day. After you calm down a little he would ask you to tell him everything, from school work that’s giving you problems to your knowledge of Korean which you’re still not satisfied with and also about your fear of not making any progress. When he hears about the root of the problem he would sit with you, no matter how long you need, until you two find a solution together. Since he know how important that is he would help you organize your time better and also make sure you understand that  he’s also BrainMon he’s there if you need any help with your school work.

Taehyung would, after telling you that you need to take you mind of school work and everything, do anything to make you forget why you were feeling bad. He would announce that now is not the time to think about ‘’what my score would be if I circled answer A instead of answer B on that last test’’.  He would drag you to the living room and make you sing along to ‘’Good Boy’’ while giving his all to imitate Taeyang  almost ripping his shirt off before you stopped him  and you’re left there being GD and to be honest that’s actually helping and that’s the first time you’re not thinking about your problems in days…And while you two are bowing and thanking ‘’the estatic crowd’’ pair of chairs with Tae’s shirts on  he say something like. ‘’Next time when something is troubling you come to me earlier.’’

Jin would give you the biggest hug ever before letting you go but only so he can explain it to you that it’s ok to let it out and cry sometimes! He would tell you that he understands how hard and stressful it must and he would probably wish that you told him how you were feeling earlier. After helping you calm down a little you two would have a long talk but only after Jin ordered take-out claiming that there is nothing favorite food can’t fix. It would be that kind of talk where you start from what’s troubling in and while talking about how to make it better you somehow end up discussing who really broke that lamp a few month ago and was that pizza from yesterday really that good or you were to tired too care. In the end you still feel better than ever because you’re pretty sure it’s not food but Jin’s encouraging words and squeaky laugh that can fix everything.

Hoseok would , after he makes sure you’re feeling ok, tell you to follow him out. You could probably notice that he’s really worried but he would hide it since the only thing he is focused on now is helping you relax and forgetting the huge weight of stress. And how does he do that…simple! Getting ice cream and wandering around the city just doing whatever seems interesting to you at the moment. When he’s sure that you’re feeling a little better than before you two go home and you’re kind of tired since you were walking a lot that day so you just lie on the bed and Hoseok encourages you to talk to him about what’s troubling you only now when you’re calmer. And after a while he’s like ‘’Shouting and screaming can help sometimes!’’ And soon you two are competing in shouting ‘’I want chicken’’ and no you’re not winning and the only thing you’re worrying about now is if the walls are really soundproof

Yoongi would tell you to get some sleep immediately since you look like you really need it and you can’t really function if you’re that stressed and tired. Even if you start complaining that you don’t have time to rest and that there’s no way you’ll ever get to do everything on time he would say something like: ‘’Ok, you don’t have to sleep but you have time to hang out with me for a while, right?’’ So you two end up lying somewhere  of course  and you start talking about school and your problems with Korean and he’s only listening carefully at the beginning and only after you finished telling him everything he’ll speak up. So he starts with telling you that you should slow down a little and do things in a more enjoyable way and he suggests learning some phrases through Bangtan’s songs and that he would of course be there to help you. And he’s like ‘’You have to relax sometimes! Take more naps. Learn from me. And there’s no way you can’t feel better after hearing him talk calmly like that.

Jungkook probably wouldn’t know what to do at first. He would need some time to think about how he should react. The best he could do at first is like putting his arm around your shoulder and offering his support like that. Noticing that you’re still upset about it he would try to make you feel better and more relaxed by, for example, organizing a movie night  even telling you to pick a movie instead of just playing Avengers or playing games with you. He wouldn’t keep pushing you to talk to him because it would probably be awkward to him but if you do start talking he would be there to listen! He might not be able to come up with something that can help you with school work and everything but you would still feel better after letting everything out and knowing that he’ll awlays be there to listen to you.

i’ve really been in the mood for writing some polyamory lately, and with what’s been on my dash, i felt like this was a good time to do it. this is my first time seriously writing a pairing with more than 2 people involved, so please feel free to give me constructive criticism on how to improve in the future if i did anything poorly. 

it’s very mercy-centric, just fyi. 


angela sees fareeha amari for the first time when fareeha’s 12 and she’s 17. she’s been at overwatch for a few months when ana brings her daughter to work–her nanny was sick, and since ana was just doing paperwork for the day anyway, it was easier to bring her along.

angela, long before she became the graceful guardian angel of overwatch, was a teenager with balance issues and insecurity over her weight, who dressed in baggy clothes underneath a lab coat. she nearly bowls fareeha over and spends a solid three minutes stammering apologies and helping her up under the watchful gaze of captain amari. she thinks that little fareeha looks a lot like her mother, but she has softer eyes.

angela scurries off, busy with work, and fareeha watches her leave before ana’s gently pushing her towards her office.

angela sees fareeha for the second time when she’s lying in the middle of the typical omnic-human warzone and wondering if it’s time for her to just. stop. she could heal herself—it’s a gunshot wound through her middle, and if she would just pick up her staff and click it on—

but she’s tired. has been tired since overwatch fell, since no one would take her into their research programs when dr. ziegler was synonymous with “overwatch’s nanotech research department” for years, since she has been offering her assistance to only the most desperate, because that’s all that would accept her help in the aftermath

(she’s been tired since all of her friends scattered to the wind and she was left alone and had no idea where to go or what to do.)

Question: Can my writings identify me? I'm not ashamed of the things I've written for fandom at all, but I have hopes of becoming a published author at some point and former fanfic writers are the laughing stock of the “real” literary community. It worries me that, if I become a published author, someone will recognize my fics and out me as a former fic author. Should I delete all trace of my fics before I publish my original stories?

It’s okay, friend! These are legitimate fears that I think a lot of writers experience, but really, I don’t think this is anything worth worrying about. I’ll address your concerns individually:

Should I delete all trace of my fics before I publish my original stories?

Definitely not!!

Unless you have a situation where your work was originally fanfiction, but you modified it to be 100% original. (Like how 50 Shades of Gray removed all traces of its Twilight influence, and no doubt removed the original from the internet)

I mean, it’s up to you in the end. But see, here’s the thing. Being a successful writer is HARD. Getting published at all is challenging enough, let alone selling enough books to be considered “successful.” Most authors struggle to even sell 100 books. I don’t mean to be depressing about it, but having a realistic outlook will help you succeed in the long run.

A lot of times, in my opinion, success boils down to marketing. People can’t enjoy your book if they don’t know it exists.

Anyone have a copy of Cinder on their shelf by Marissa Meyer? One of the last page lists hundreds of book bloggers that she reached out to in order to get some hype going about her book. And it worked. It got the word out, and I honestly believe that was a big factor in making the Lunar Chronicles as successful as it is. Of course, her books had to be amazing enough to build on that hype and keep growing. But people have to know your book exists before they can read it and fall in love with it.

If you already have an online following that enjoys your writing, you get a head start. You have a place to go to say “Hey everyone, look. I got published!”

I heard recently that Sarah J Maas started off posting her work online, and gained fans that way—before her books were even published. When you already have people excited about your work and your writing, you have a group of people “warmed up” and more willing to buy. They know you. They’re familiar with you.

(I hate to make this all about the numbers, but again, it’s about being realistic. The publishers only care about the numbers, so if you want to get a book #2 out there, your book #1 sales have to be decent.)

Truthfully, very few of your fanfic followers will actually buy a book, though. Most people are just there for the free content. But it’s a start. It’s a way to get the word out and grab a few precious sales.

I’ve also heard from agents at writing conferences that having an online following when you query can improve your chances. Mostly they were talking about self-published authors, but it applies to fanfic authors too. You’ve proven that you can get people to read your work and become your fan. That’s credibility.

It worries me that, if I become a published author, someone will recognize my fics and out me as a former fic author.

Yeah, it might happen. I don’t think it’s anything to worry about, though.

  1. Most fanfic authors post under a username, so unless you make it public knowledge that it’s you, you can stay anonymous. Even if your friends/family know about the connection, it’d be hard to get enough word-of-mouth going to make that public knowledge.
  2. Most people don’t pay much attention to the author of the book they read.
  3. Honestly, not many people will have the time/interest be snooping around your background.
  4. The people who DO go snooping around most likely loved your writing so much that they wanted to learn more about you and see if you had any other books published. In which case they’d probably be like “Oh cool, she used to be a fanfic author” and either not think much of it, or see it as really neat.
    1. People who loved your book but think poorly of fanfiction will be in for a surprise. You can help change the bad stereotypes floating around about fanfiction as “lesser” writing, one mind at a time!
    2. This might be really inspiring to other fic writers who find this out. And you will become their hero! “Wow, this writer did it. I can too!!”
    3. Long-time fans of your fanfiction may just become your most loyal fans. They can have that connected feeling to you because they knew you before everyone else. “Wow, I used to read this person’s writing all the time! It’s crazy how much their writing has grown over the years.”

Fanfic writers are the laughing stock of the “real” literary community.

My friend, unless you are writing gritty realistic fiction about a 50-year-old white man having a mid-life crisis, you will always be the laughingstock of the “real” literary community.

The “real” literary community will always cling to their ideas of writing purity, and there isn’t much you can do about it. You have to be a Hemmingway or a Fitzgerald in order to be of “real” value. Purists like we’re talking about are few and mostly in academia, and they will wave their fists at you and whine and cry that literature is being ruined, absolutely ruined by all these monstrosities like genre fiction and fanfiction.

(I’m somewhat bitter about this, by the way. My university completely snubbed its nose at any hint of genre fiction, but luckily I had several professors who were more open-minded about such things.)

But it’s like, ehh. Let them shake their fists. Fanfiction is a beautiful form of writing and millions of people will agree with me on that. Sure, a lot of people will also disagree, but you can’t please everyone.


let’s play a fun game called ‘auden translates braille shown in daredevil’

if there were more than a handful of panels i’d suggest a drinking game- drink whenever you can tell the writers have said “people who read braille don’t read comics so we have no accountability and no reason to work on accuracy”

but i’ve read 191 daredevil comics now and i believe i’ve taken screenshots of every instance i saw braille (i read a few comics in print- possibly i missed some there?) and this was all i could find so it would be a terrible drinking game anyways. i’m not counting the cover of 3.10.1 because it just says “daredevil” in all lowercase with no contractions and that’s boring and i don’t care much.

[image: two early daredevil panels. matt runs two fingers over “a braille subway map”.]


i truly have no idea. i’m willing to give them the benefit of the doubt for the actual map part, especially because the art on this panel is so bad that it’s clear they put in like maybe five minutes of effort on this whole damn comic, and it’s very, very early. but what’s meant to be text is… not even close to being anything at all. 


i am sorrowful but unsurprised

[image: three daredevil panels. matt goes over his schedule for the day, written in braille. he scours the schedule for a ‘nicholas macabee,’ who is meant to have an 11:30 appointment but is not on the book.]


be.5y andbeinbe 

be(obscured- possibly e)be ?(, or .5 - the spacing is weird)wk h(obscured- but at least one of these dots is not in a cell)(capital letter marking)

(obscured)t.(, or .5 - spacing is weird)mo(obscured- possibly d)



(obscured- possibly a)(obscured- possibly d)(obscured- possibly b)enenand”(obscured)en




:?(, or .5 - the spacing is messed up)senn) 


(obscured- maybe an s but it goes outside the cell)n(k or possibly st)t?

CONCLUSION: so that’s just a massive fucking mess

[image: five daredevil panels. matt sits in front of his phone, which has speed-dial buttons labeled in braille. he considers, then calls natasha.]


(obscured)(vertical and horizontal spacing makes this unreadably weird- possibly k)

(obscured)(vertical and horizontal spacing makes this unreadably weird- possibly eg)

(obscured) ()y (i’m giving this one a couple of points though because it’s clearly meant to be the ‘ggy’ of ‘foggy,’ just poorly vertically arranged)

be.5y (could be intended to be ‘bay’)

beobe (also gets a couple of points as a poorly vertically arranged ‘bob’)

sw (which he presses for natasha romanoff, black widow)

CONCLUSION: this is the only thing in all of volume two that actually makes any effort at all, which tells you something, because there’s literally nothing right about this. it also of course raises the question: who does matt have higher on his speed dial than foggy?

[image: three panels of sheet music on matt’s piano. text reads “the sheet music has a raised texture for my fingers to read. it was a christmas present from an old girlfriend.”]


okay, so this isn’t actually braille, but that’s the problem. it’s literally just raised text and raised notes on presumably a raised staff. which. is not how braille music notation works. braille music notation is a very specific form of braille, which looks something like this (although i don’t know braille music notation yet, so i can’t quite confirm): 

[image: a page of sheet music with traditional music notation above (printed for display) braille music notation.]

[image: two daredevil panels. milla’s friend hands her a bouquet of flowers sent by matt. the flowers have a braille card in them. milla and her friend comment that they’re not pretty, but they smell amazing.]





CONCLUSION: matt murdock knows just what to say to get the ladies. 

[image: the cover of daredevil volume 3 #14. matt is turned towards the viewer, holding his billy club and running two fingers across grommets on the truly giant mask of dr. doom. just above his head is doom’s menacing veined eye, bigger than his head.] 


d o o m 


the spacing on this one is like one whole cell more than it should be and it’s Massive, i’m really not sure how matt is reading that, but that’s okay, i guess, because it’s not really for him, and much of the story is about how he doesn’t know that he’s in latveria, and he doesn’t know he’s being held by doom, because so much of the available information is kept from him, and there’s all this dramatic irony about the audience knowing and him not and whatever. anyways i love it.

[image: a panel in which a latverian villain holds up matt’s avengers ID card, which is emblazoned with braille. he crushes it, saying, “congratulations, blind man. you found the master’s communications damper and crippled it…” 




so excepting the villain being unnecessarily ableist in several ways, that’s truly not… wrong. i just don’t know what kind of material would crumple like that in someone’s hand but maintain the texture of the braille itself otherwise. did this guy just crumple a thick sheet of hard plastic in his hand? is that what happened? is he ok 

on a more important note, why has tony brailled matt’s ID card with just his superhero name? if his identity hasn’t yet been revealed as matt murdock, then shouldn’t it at least ALSO be in print? whatever it’s chill i’m chill

[image: a single daredevil panel. a woman’s hand is seen passing a letter written in braille to a doctor. printed text behind it reads “Please know that whatever your doctors or your parents may try to tell you, you did hear my voice the other day. You were in my apartment. That was real. Someone played on your confused state of mind just to get to me. You didn’t deserve that.”]


please know that

whatever your doctors

or your parents may try

to tell you, you

did hear my voice the

other day’ you were in

my apartment’ that was

real’ someone played

of mind just to get to

me’ you didnfort deserve

(obscured)t’ if, through some

(obscured)roke of luck,  you

are reading this note,

donfort let your doctors

find it’ i shouldnfort

CONCLUSION: so this is basically right! but with no capitalization and really fucked up punctuation (i’m pretty sure all six dots is not an apostrophe, and i’m pretty sure what they’re using in place of a period IS an apostrophe). the reason each line as barely anything on it, though, is that it’s in the most basic possible braille there is- it’s like instead of speaking something, spelling it out letter by letter instead.

[image: a single daredevil panel. matt sits in the foreground, pouring over a braille book. foggy is in profile in the background, opening a briefcase. the book matt’s ‘reading’ is mostly blank with the occasional scattered dots.]

LINE BY LINE TRANSLATION: nope there’s literally nothing i can do with that sorry


[image: a single daredevil panel. matt sits at his desk, looking tired and overwhelmed. the desk is covered by stacks of papers. in the foreground is a desk plate, labeled in braille.]


Matt Murdock 


CONCLUSION: i’ll cry. i’m literally crying right now. this is all i’ve ever wanted. capitalization, punctuation, letters???  

[image: matt’s bandaged hand holds a syringe, labeled in braille. the narration box reads “On the label. ‘Got you.’ 


GOT (obscured, capital letter marking, probably)


so this is both right and really valuable to the story, and i love it. like, this is the villain messing with matt, not only by showing that he can hurt foggy, but by showing that he knows matt’s identity, has power over that identity remaining secret(ish), and is fully willing to fuck with matt murdock as well as daredevil. ‘got you’ is not that powerful, but ‘got you’ in braille is lovely storytelling.

Normally though, the tropes are not the ones I’m interested in. Just recently, there’s been a sudden peak in badboy kook and nerd or cheerleader jimin, and as expected they’re all bottom jimin of course. Most of the time, I can ignore those since I don’t like them, but the fact that Jungkook is portrayed as this scary delinquent who can beat up everyone and is an asshole to everyone is the reason why I’m so tired of this particular role. Jimin, on the other hand, is portrayed as an innocent shy angel who could do nothing wrong and is so beautiful that Jungkook just suddenly changes his ways. Jungkook is put into the bad boy role and Jimin is put into the shy role usually because it’s easier for them to fit into the top/bottom mold that’s so prevalent in the fandom. I wouldn’t be as annoyed if bad boy Jungkook turned out to be the bottom because it’s going against the stereotypical personalities of the bottom’s character. It’s the perpetuated top/bottom characteristics that get to me. I sound salty, because I am salty. So please excuse the bitterness and sarcasm. I’m not hating on the authors at all, but I’m just expressing what I think. 

What I don’t understand is why there aren’t more bad boy Jimin fics where Jungkook is the easily flustered one. Why can’t Jungkook be a cheerleader, or the nerd, or the sweetheart? Is he just barred from that role or something? He doesn’t have to be the bulky jock that is a jerk you know.There’s so much potential in the role reversal and I’m kind of disappointed that there are barely any fics for that (the ones I do find are buried underneath the top kook tropes). Jungkook can be a total sweetheart and he gets shy really easily, especially if it’s Jimin that teases him. This could totally be written into the badboy trope we love so much! 

Imagine Jimin, who is normally not that interested in school, suddenly coming because he noticed the quiet boy in the back of the class that occasionally reveals his bunny smile. His first thought is “he’s cute” and he later learns that the boy’s name is Jeon Jungkook. He then takes the initiative to sit beside Jungkook in the classes they have together and tries to talk to him. Jungkook is obviously very shy and he gets a bit awkward with first conversations, but it’s okay, Jimin can open him up (not that way, I just know some of you will think this). After awhile, Jungkook gets more comfortable with him and Jimin has the pleasure of witnessing that gorgeous smile (”You sure you’re not an angel, Jungkookie?” “H-hyung! Stop, you’re embarrassing me…”). But Jimin is not the only that knows Jungkook is painfully shy. Jimin’s old friends notice how he’s hanging around Jungkook. Jimin was their leader of sorts (not exactly a gang, just a group of bad boys that Jimin didn’t actually like that much) and now he’s playing nice with this pretty boy he found. They corner Jungkook after school, taunting him, and pushing him around. “What’s so good about you anyways? You’re just a weak, little pansy. It is because you’re fun to mess with? I didn’t know Jimin was into the whole school-boy concept.” Jungkook would start to cry and they mock him even more, pulling on his hair. Jimin happens to catch them and he’s furious. He pulls Jungkook behind him before beating the crap out of his old “friends” before Jungkook tugs on his arm and stops him before he gets kicked out of school. Nobody dares touch Jungkook after that, but Jimin is still wary and he walks Kookie to class every day, an protective arm always curled around his waist. If someone even looks at Jungkook for a second too long, Jimin will glare. No one can hurt Jungkook if he’s there. It goes without saying, that they’re the new couple and Jimin is so obviously smitten that people who knew Jimin as the school’s bad boy, look at him weirdly. He doesn’t mind though, since Jungkook is laughing happily beside him and giving him shy kisses on the cheek. SOMEONE PLEASE WRITE THIS!!!!

Wow, I totally went overboard, but here! Also, anonnie, have you noticed how there’s suddenly been a flood of these fics (and top kook fics) after Jimin called Jungkook his “baby”? Are people really that against the idea of Jungkook being taken care of by Jimin or Jimin babying Kookie instead of the other way around? My saltiness is revealing itself again…but I couldn’t hold it in.

I just want to write a very heartfelt letter to the amazing friends and followers I’ve met…

It’s hard to express exactly how grateful I am that you guys find interest in my perspective, that you guys WANT to hear my over-analytic rambles. It’s even harder to express how touched I am that people speak such nice words and compliments to me about my personality. I have always responded with a huge heartfelt “Thank you” to the amazing tumblrites who’ve sent a kind word… I want to express to you guys exactly how touching your words are for me to hear. Because you guys have touched me in a really profound way and I can’t thank you enough.

I have never been the popular person or the individual whose thoughts others want to hear. In class, I was “the calculator” or “the dictionary”… but I was so rarely ever regarded as “the friend.” People sometimes talked to me in class for help in understanding academic concepts… but even then, I remember times where people admitted they were nervous talking to me about even things like academics. The point is, I was considered “the person-like thing who did school” and not “the human who had the potential to be a friend.” People knew me for my grades so much that they often failed to perceive me as being a being with feeling, emotion, and the desire for social inclusion. 

This means I’m not used to people actually coming up and actively asking for my perspective. Asking for me. I’m not used to people being invested in what I have to say outside of something impersonal and required like schoolwork. I’m especially not used to getting compliments like, “You’re nice.” Truth is, before I got on tumblr and started this blog, those were words I almost never heard. I mean, in the junior high and high school I heard “You’re smart” as a compliment so many times it actually started to feel like a punch in the face because it continued to dehumanize me from social circles. I’ve learned how to gracefully accept that and any compliment I hear, but it doesn’t erase this fact: in the large social scale of things, I’m not used to being complimented as a person.

I don’t tend to wear my heart on my sleeve and make it obvious how I’m feeling. I don’t act incredibly awkward in social situations, I don’t fret about social situations, I’ve almost never been insecure about myself and my positive traits (my whole life I’ve fought an ongoing battle of trying not to be cocky or conceited *sigh* really bad trait of mine), and I know how to handle compliments when I get them. Years ago I also ceased caring how people thought of me; things I actually heard spoken irl like “Who would want to talk to Haddock? lol, no one,” hurt me in the junior high, but by now, I’m insensitive to those sorts of things.

But even then… it doesn’t mean I’m unaffected by hearing your guys’ kindness. The truth is… I am staggered by the words I’ve received from people here on tumblr in the HTTYD community. Each time someone tells me something simple like, “You’re a nice person,” I feel myself choke up a little. I’m still not used to hearing that adjective applied to me.

YOU are the amazing people for stopping into someone’s ask box and asking for an analysis. YOU are the amazing, kindhearted people for sending kind words my way. I’m sorry that this was an autobiographical ramble that sounds focused on me. I don’t want to make this about me. What I want to do is thank YOU. YOU for making such a positive emotional impact.

Now for the fun!!
  • So over the ships pretty sure Rucas is happening now on to the "game changing" news that's going to happen in sweet sixteen! So I'm going to try my hand at predictions! Mind you I'm bad at this stuff so bear with me lol
  • So first what we know
  • ~Everything relies on a decision (so the game changer may not happen)
  • ~Topanga has some say in the decision
  • ~Depending on the decision Cory could potentially not be their teacher anymore
  • ~It has nothing to do with money
  • ~it has nothing to do with school
  • ~there is no threat of them moving back to philly
  • ~ Cory was not offered a better job
  • ~ an opportunity did not present itself to Riley
  • ~Farkle dos not get an early acceptance to college
  • ~the game changer makes Riley Auggie and Maya sad and cry but it in itself isn't necessarily sad...it's actually good
  • ~if it happened it will affect EVERYONE including even Shawn
  • ~ Farkle does not know and his reaction should be particularly interesting
  • ~ someone if not everyone is finally going to "explode"
  • ~no one came out as gay bi etc
  • ~ may seem to the "bird watchers" (wtf is that) that it is good for rucas but in fact it isn't
  • ~ no one dies and we already said the game changer was actually good news so this is like common sense
  • ~no one is pregnant (although that honestly would be like the BIGGEST game changer of all time in my book especially if Riley was pregnant but that's like OVER pushing the envelope lol)
  • ~this game changer could potentially affect Rilaya and it seems not in a good way
  • ~Maya is not moving in with her dad
  • ~If they film the show where the game changer does happen,again, everyone will be affected and they could potentially end the show on this ( if need be i.e. Get canceled)
  • ~if no cancellation again everything will change
  • ~there is the potential to lose someone
  • ~in this episode no one is moving
  • okay so with all of this information to me the most obvious predication is that Cory, Topanga, Riley, and Auggie are potentially moving. Really the only thing that will affect everyone and the very premise of the show itself with these perimeters is them moving. Because really nothing would affect Shawn other than Maya and Katy and let's be honest most of all Cory lol. We know Maya isn't moving to her fathers but still if Maya was the one moving why would Auggie be crying and Topanga have a choice in the matter?
  • -So we know Cory didn't get a new job offer and Riley didn't get a new opportunity. I thought about maybe one of their parents got really sickly and they had to move back to be with them but nahh because of the hint the news is good and they are not moving back to philly. So this kind of only leaves either Auggie getting a new opportunity and them moving for him or Topanga once again getting a new opportunity (and I say once again because there's always something going on with Topanga esp if you watched BMW). Also as far as tying into Topangas say in the matter the girl meets world writers already said sometime in this season Riley and Topanga were going to have a huge fight and this might be the catalyst. Also there was a hint at possibly someone realizing they like another person while being in a relationship because reality has a way of making things clear with the potential of losing someone. Let's all be honest and say we now this has to do with Riley and Farkle. and also it was stated the show if canceled could easily end this way (also hinted that it's common. What's a more common way to end a series than the main character moving away). Now there was mention that no one was moving (In this episode). It was real suspicious how "in this episode" was added to meaning probably the decision hasn't been made yet about the move.
  • Well those are some of my thoughts where and why they are moving is a mystery but it might become clear soon.
  • I got all of these hints from a tumblr user who was at the live taping of the episode. I honestly forgot their username so if anyone knows it please link or something 😁 oh found its "girlmeetsherworld" I don't know how to tag people lol but there is probably more hints on that blog
  • Feel free to let me know yalls ideas
  • UPDATE: it's recommended to watch these BMW episodes "A long walk to Pittsburg 1&2" , "Graduation", Angela's Ashes, "Brave New World 1&2" now I JUST finished binge watching all of BMW so I don't even need to go rewatch but if you haven't watched these episodes then wow it's almost completely obvious lol
  • "A long Walk To Pittsburg 1&2": episode where Topanga MOVES AWAY to Pittsburg because one of her parents got transferred!!!!
  • "Graduation": episode where they graduated high school and everyone was MOVING AWAY to college and on to the next chapter of their lives. Topanga had to make the decision to go to Yale or stay with Cory (she stays with Cory lol)
  • "Angela's Ashes": Angela MOVES AWAY with her father to Europe
  • "Brave New World 1&2": last episodes of BMW everyone is preparing to MOVE AWAY and again on to the next chapter of their lives. Again, Topanga gets a job offer from a law firm in New York (hello gmw lol) and Cory and Shawn MOVE with her there
  • I mean idk how much more blatant could this get and multiple people have said watch these episodes. And can we please talk about how basically ALL of these episodes have some shit to do with Topanga? Perhaps a hint? Even though Angela was the one leaving in Angela's ashes Topanga was the one zooming around and interviewing for the New York job so The episode was about Angela but HIGH KEY Topanga.
  • Lol I'm going to stick with this moving away thing but knowing my luck it's not going to be this because it would have been "too obvious" haha
  • Another Update:
  • So after an interesting message today I'm now like 87% sure that this is happening 🙊
  • So I watched True Maya and Jexica again because those are the recommended GMW episodes to watch and let's just say in this theory I'm missing exactly who is moving (I think Riley and fam but I'm not exactly sure), why they are moving, and where they are moving
  • Let's just say that after watching those episodes I see that at least one of those answers is defiantly hinted at 👀👀
  • A hint: something pertaining to one of those three questions will be mentioned 3 times over both episodes. All of the mentions are different but they all have one thing in common. Another hint, after you watch the episodes and think about it, look back over the recaps of my BMW episodes. It's literally written right there.
  • Okay actually...after some things I realized that basically everything you need is in this theory lol just put it all together. like I said isn't there a common theme in the BMW episodes? And watch the two GMW episodes and think about what I said. All of this should answer who, why, and where (:
Erased - (Part 1/3)

Joining the bandwagon of fic around Regina’s comment about Robin needing to forget her to save Marian. 

This is the first part of three (maybe 4). 

Robin takes the potion to forget ever knowing Regina. 


Regina took a deep breath, and with shaky hands added the last ingredient to the potion. It swirled and shimmered a deep blue.

She stepped away from the bench and tried to take steadying breaths.

This was it.

The potion was complete. Robin was due to arrive any minute and then… It would all be over.

‘Regina.’ His rich voice spoke softly.

Regina spun around to face him. Suddenly blinking back tears. This was one of the last moments she would have with him whilst he still remembered. Very soon everything they’d had would be lost.

'The potion just needs a few more minutes to settle, and then it will be ready.’

He swallowed thickly. He wasn’t for a second taking his eyes off her. Off the woman he loved. Because he was all too aware that shortly he wouldn’t remember loving her at all.

'Are you sure… Are you sure there is no other way?’ He asked.

'I’ve looked at every avenue.’ Regina said. 'If you want your wife back, this is the only way.’

Recklessly Robin closed the space between them significantly.

'I don’t want to forget you.’ He said.

I'm Here

a/n: this was badly written but what can i do i have finals and i just feel the urge to fulfill this request, excuse me

requests are always open

Losing one of the most loved people must be the worst thing to ever experience in this world. It’s definitely not easy but you just gotta let it go sometimes though it may be hard to cope with for a while. Calum had been all blue since he’s got a call telling him that his sister, Mali, was passed away after a horrible car crash she had. There was a little bit hope in him that wishing it wasn’t some major car accident but his hope vanished when he saw his sister was hooked up into lots of medical machines in the hospital. His hope was crushed back then and even now, a week after her funeral, Calum still remained silent and not wanting to talk to anyone.

The dinner that night went silent and there was some uncomfortable awkwardness floating around the atmosphere. You slowly chewed your food as your hand snaked in above the table, trying to reach his hand but he quickly swat it away making you let out a deep breath. “Don’t you wanna talk it out? Just in case I could help you in any way,” you said and Calum didn’t seem to mind you at all. “No.” He said and you nodded. “Maybe some movies? Go to your favorite place or you can get a puppy you’ve been wanting,” you exclaimed trying to cheer him up but he dropped his spoon and made a clang sound as it fell onto the plate. “No, Mali can’t be replaced by a damn puppy Y/N and I don’t want to talk about anything and you should stop annoying me because I fucking don’t wanna talk to you!” His calm voice soon turned into a high pitch as he ran upstairs, leaving you dumbfounded with the leftovers.

That night was the last time Calum talked to you and you could barely bear his hurting words but that didn’t give you a reason to leave. He needed supports and he needed you, but it was also the time he needed some times to himself just to think clear and heal a little bit. Since then, he barely got out of your shared bedroom that it made you slept on the couch because you were too scared that he was going to blurt out in sudden and hurt you again. He only got out to get, but sometimes also he didn’t even get in the mood to eat so you had to make him food and force him to eat. Little did he know that the death of Mali, not only affecting him and his family but you too. As girls, you two were really close and always shared everything you had and now she was gone, you felt like you had lost your sister as well. But the fact that Calum couldn’t accept his loss was making you go even more insane. He was true when he didn’t wanna talk to you particularly because he generally just didn’t want to talk to anybody else in this whole world. Neither his parents nor his best friends had succeeded to make him come out of the room. However, you had talked about his current situation to his parents and they saluted your patience to deal with their son.

That day, Calum hadn’t come out of the bedroom and you decided to bring him food. As you knocked on the door, you could hear him sniffling and you had to keep yourself from crying remembering how the boy you thought wouldn’t cry for anything was actually really fragile. “Calum, you need to eat.” You shouted but there was no response. You exhaled before knocking on the door again. “Cal, please open the door. I know it’s hard for you but you can’t be like this,” you exclaimed, there was still no response nor the sniffling sound anymore. “You know Mali won’t be happy seeing you like this,” you said half whispering, rubbing the temple. “I bet she’s looking for you from the above and she wants you to keep going on with your life, if you want her to be happy then don’t make her suffer by seeing you sad,” you ccontinued and it remained silent for a while. Calum was probably too busy crying that he didn’t hear what you were babbling about. You decided to go back downstairs right when you heard the door unlocked. “But I wanna be with her,” you turned your heels to meet pouty Calum with his swollen eyes. You smiled tiredly and stepped closer to him as he finally stepped out of the room. “Someday but not now,” you caressed his cheek as tears slowly threatening to fall down his face. “We all will be together again someday but look at you growing up with success in your hand, you just have to continue your life, love,” you smiled looking him in the eyes. He let your soft hand caressing his cheeks, you wiped the tears away with your thumbs while he stood there looking like he was thinking about something. Calum took a deep breath and smiled at you before taking your hand in his and kissed it softly. “I appreciate you giving me times to mourn, and I’m so sorry for being a dick and letting you sleep on the couch and yelled-” Psh, you’re not a dick for mourning over someone you love Calum. It’s hard to cope with but you just gotta let it go. You know how old people say how the dead would suffer if we can’t get over their deaths,” you cut him off as he took your face in his hand, giving you a long sweet kiss. “God, Y/N, you’re so perfect, how do you even put up with my shit,” he smiled looking at you lovingly. “I might ask you to put up with my shit forever someday, well I definitely will,” he said making you both chuckle before the silent eating you up again. You both just stood there, looking at each other whilst smiling stupidly like the first time you fell in love with each other. “I love you,” he said giving you a kiss on the nose. “And if you think continuing my life would make her happy then I promise I would do it,” you nodded at his statement before he gave you a peck on the lips.

vera9  asked:

You're about the only person I follow whom I know has read The Cursed Child. (I only read the summary aaaand I was done after that) I'm curious as to what you think are its pros and cons? :)

Oh, boy! This is gonna be long :D I’d like to point out that I’ll list the pros and cons of the script. Because many of the positive things about The Cursed Child are sure to be thanks to the actors and set & special effects designers etc. I’m sure the play is magical to watch and when you have wonderful actors with loads of chemistry, amazing decor, special effects, and choreography, plot and plot holes and characters written a bit ooc go mostly unnoticed, I think.

So, the script - I’ll probably miss something but here we go!


Main characters are Slytherins who are both good kids at heart! 

Scorpius Malfoy! - Scorpius is such a cinnamon roll! What a great and cute character! And that’s my opinion only based on the script. Considering Anthony Boyle is said to have the best performance out of all the actors, I can only imagine how precious Scorpius is on stage.

Albus Potter! - people talk about him less but I really liked him. Sometimes even more than Scorpius. He has tons of issues that he doesn’t deal well with and he’s also a teenager to top it. He can be such a savage lil’ shit but is also good at heart and a great friend and it’s all so believable to read. I adore Albus Potter!

Scorbus (Friendship) - sadly I can list this both here and in the CONS because it deserved to be more than friendship. But anyway… Scorpius and Albus are best friends. And for someone who always headcanoned them as friends it makes me so happy! They hit it off literally from the first time they talk to each other and are inseparable ever since. they are the type of friends that can call each other on their bullshit and take a Cruciatus for each other. And if that’s not the highest level of friendship a person can achieve - I don’t know what is. There are also SO many romantic scenes between them which are super enjoyable but I’m gonna write the blatant queer baiting in the CONS.

Draco!!! - Draco gets his redemption arc in The Cursed Child! He’s also a good dad even though he finds it difficult to connect with Scorpius. He’s really trying his best and it’s beautiful! My fav part is where he’s ready to wring Harry’s neck because Scorpius is in tears caused by Harry’s bad parenting. Also, he apparently married for love and adored his wife Astoria which is something I really like. Too bad they killed her off to further his manpain and to cause his redemption arc to launch eventually. I’m still salty about this…

Drarry Friendship! - we finally get to see Draco and Harry as friends! And it’s great! Draco calling Harry out on his shit parenting - priceless. 

Hilarious scenes -  some of them are funny sorely because they plot is so ridiculous you just can’t help but laugh - For Voldemort and Valor, ruining VOLDEMORT DAY!!!1, upsetting the dementors, Scorpion King, I start laughing just by typing this the things are hilarious! 

Angst and dealing with traumas - or in other words: Poor Harry… I’m sure all his angst scenes would’ve made me cry if I watched the play. Seriously heartbreaking stuff. Other peoples’ traumas were also addressed but mainly Harry’s.


Plot - it reads like a crack fanfiction and has so many plot holes it makes your head spin. So if you want to read this for the plot - you’ll be sorely disappointed, I think. Different time travel to begin with… also Voldemort had a functioning dick and actually used it and had a baby with Bellatrix in the goddamn Malfoy Manor and nobody noticed that or the 9 months of pregnancy like wtf…. Death Eater!Cedric because he was humiliated.. I have no words about this tbh… etc. etc. But once you just accept it’s a ridiculous plot, you can enjoy the script just fine. I think people are mostly disappointed because they expected an 8th book but TCC is not that. It’s a script for a play. 

Some characters doing ooc things for the sake of the plot. As I mentioned - Cedric is my prime example here but other characters fit the bill like Harry… although ppl debate whether he was ooc at times and for me he was but anyway.. the thing is, the plot is not working well if you need to write characters ooc at times.. 

Ron and Love Potions - ugh, I get it that the Love Potion was mostly a plot device (and I guess a failed attempt at humor) but the whole thing is just gross and I don’t think Ron (who suffered the effects of a love potion) of all ppl would give Albus one.

The assured HETERONORMATIVITY - a.k.a Act 4 Scene 14. The whole script reads as a Scorbus romance in the progress. Not like a friendship. Like a romance. And yet both Scorpius and Albus say they have crushes only on female characters. 

The Scorbus romance is treated at the end in such a blatant “no homo” backpedaling way that it’s both disappointing and irritating. I’ve seen posts excusing this by saying they are only 14 but the fact is there are 14 year-olds who know they are gay/bi/pan and for the sake of representation the writers could’ve written Albus and Scorpius as gay/bi/pan but they chose not to. They not only chose not to but they specifically made sure to mention how straight both characters are at the end of the script. People can headcanon all they want that Albus and Scorpius discover their sexualities later in life but the fact remains that there were no gay/bi representation in canon and that’s what really matters at the end of the day…

CONCLUSION: The script made canon some very key stuff I headcanoned about the next gen kids so I’m super happy about this. Also good dad!Draco and redemption arc + friends with Harry also makes me very happy! Scorbus scenes were delicious but heteronormativity shoved down my throat was not. I have mixed feelings about TCC tbh … It was mostly a fun read when it wasn’t trying to punch you in the heart with its angst. It’s a lot better than I expected tho! 

And we did get good!Slytherin Scorpius & Albus as best friends and the Scorbus ship gained so many new fans and there are lots of new fics and art so all those are great! 

The summary and the spoilers sounded a lot worse on their own, tbh. So give the script a chance :)

anonymous asked:

do you have any tips on writing mavins? specifically in the characterization department? moreover, do you have any examples of well written mavins?

don’t spell out gavin’s accent!! [yells on top of a mountain] don’t spell out gavin’s accent [puts head in hands] don’t spell out gavin’s accent [lies down on the floor] don’t spell out gavin’s accent. it’s all fine if it’s acknowledged in-story (geoff making fun of gavin’s accent, etc) but just outright writing “micoo,” gavin said is an instant back-button for me. you don’t spell out michael’s occasional slip to jersey accent, and i don’t see why anyone should do the same with gavin

with that out of the way i’m putting on a disclaimer that this is just my opinions and the way I perceive things!! you are free to disagree with me or ignore me, all that jazz. the accent thing is non-arguable though sorry i don’t make the rules

insert general advice regarding rpf–on how human beings aren’t fictional characters, how everyone’s personalities develop and shift over time, how their actions in real life don’t actually fit a certain narrative we can analyze, how ultimately i do not know any of these people and am simply referring to their internet personas they choose to adopt for the public

so here goes nothing:

  • gavin is far from stupid, but he does have an unconventional way of thinking, this rapid-fire train of thoughts that his mouth can’t always keep up and much less verbalize. a lot of his infamous “stupid” comments are rooted on logical and/or scientific basis, but he doesn’t always string the right words to explain them. this is most evident in the interview skits where gavin answers burnie’s science questions with what are actually factually correct answers, but in a really weird, silly way. on fics, especially in ones written in his pov, i always see him have a lot of mental narration that jumps around a lot, only for him to verbalize parts of his thought process. it’s potentially fun to write because you can bring in a lot of weird analogies and metaphors into the mix
  • gavin is also, quite possibly, the least emotionally-sensitive person i’ve ever come across. this is the guy who thinks having someone die in his flight is troublesome. this is the guy who says he doesn’t care the impact of his actions as long as it entertains him. he’s far from sociopathic and he does care a lot about people he’s close with (see: him supporting meg, him willing to be michael’s groomsman despite hating the job), but for god’s sake gavin isn’t going to cry because michael yells at him. he really isn’t. most of the time, he probably initiates those yelling on purpose, for his own amusement
  • michael isn’t just his rage quit persona!! michael isn’t just his rage quit persona. he is not violent in real life. he is neither verbally nor physically abusive. he is also creative with his insults and swears like a drunk but verbose sailor so having him say “fuck” twenty times in a sentence doesn’t sound that in-character to me. he’s the best at explaining things and the one among the ah guys who most consciously practices the way he speaks and outlines things in layman’s terms
  • and lastly: most of the times michael isn’t actually the straight man to gavin’s silly antics. you may get this impression on first glance because of how rage quit works, but let’s be real if gavin does something stupid, you can bet your ass michael’s gonna be the first person on the passenger seat. in fact, if gavin suddenly announces he’d burn down his house for a dare, michael would fetch him the gasoline without second thought

whoops sorry for rambling but yeah those are (to me) the most important things when writing/reading a mavin fic!! and as always, i am here to recommend millstone by jolach on ao3, because i’m boring and that fic is still the best mavin fic i’ve ever come across, please read it

“Simon. He’s been gone for two days. Give it a week. This is Baz. He used to disappear all the time, and he always came back.” Penelope is trying to be a good friend. Penelope is a good friend. The problem is this is different than every other time. Those times, Baz wasn’t Simon’s boyfriend.

He tells her that. “Penny, he wouldn’t disappear for two days without so much as a phone call. Something is wrong. I know it.”

Simon gives it another day before he really goes crazy. He pulls out his phone to call Baz for the 157th time but hits the calendar app by accident. The date catches his eye before he closes out of the app, and then he is bursting into Penelope’s bedroom.

“Simon, didn’t anyone ever teach you how to knock?” She looks up at him then. Something must be written in his expression because her tone becomes soft. “What is it?”

“I know where he is.”

There are few things that Simon would bring Simon back to Watford. Actually, there’s probably only one thing that would bring him back here.

Penelope drives him, no questions asked. She really is the best friend he could ask for. She even waits in the car when he grabs the mini emergency flashlight out of her glove compartment, jumps out, and runs off to find Baz.

Simon never thought he would be thankful that he spent the majority of his time at Watford searching for Baz, but now he can’t help but be grateful to know his way through the Catacombs with somewhat of a sense of ease.

He ignores the skulls lining the tunnel and heads straight for the stone doorway. Any other day, he’d be properly creeped out, but today his mind is focused on one thing.

When he enters Le Tombeaus des Enfants, he finds Baz immediately. The boy’s back is to the doorway, so Simon says his name.

“Baz?” Even at a whisper, Simon’s voice feels too loud.

Baz turns around. His face, flushed red and wet with tears, turns to confusion for a moment and then twists to annoyance.

“Snow. What are you doing here?” For a moment, Simon almost forgets that this isn’t fifth year all over again. Baz hasn’t spoken to him in that tone in over a year. He wasn’t prepared for this reaction. Truthfully, he wasn’t prepared for any reaction. Simon hadn’t thought past the point of finding Baz to even think that maybe the boy didn’t want to be found.

“Baz?” Simon repeats because he doesn’t know what else to say. His mind is spinning. “I came to find you,” he finally manages to choke out.

Baz seems to realize that Simon is here out of love, not mere curiosity, and his face softens again. Simon can once again see the pain etched into his features.

Slowly, Simon makes his way over to his boyfriend, still not quite sure how to begin speaking. Baz beats him to it, holding out his hand to stop Simon from moving any closer.

Please,” Baz whispers, “I just…really need space right now.” A tear escapes Baz’s eye. Simon is sure he is seeing things.

This time it is Simon’s expression that shifts in hurt. “Baz…” Simon whispers the name again, taking a short step after it.

Please,” Baz begs. “I can’t look at you right now. It hurts too much.”

Without warning, Simon begins to cry, too. Baz can’t look at me? What did I do?

“Baz, please. Just talk to me. We can get through this together. Please, talk to me. I’m right here.”

Baz is starting to slip. Simon can see the boy’s composure is about to crack completely and he needs to be there to catch the pieces before they scatter among the bones.

“”It’s not fair,” Baz chokes out before he falls to his knees. Simon is there before his boyfriend hits the ground.

They stay there for a while. Baz crying into Simon’s shoulder, Simon lacing his fingers through Baz’s silky black hair.

When Baz has calmed enough, he lifts his head off Simon’s shoulder and speaks. “It was my one chance to see her again. Hear her voice. And I missed it. I thought maybe if I came back here. If I wanted it enough. I don’t know.”

Simon does know, though. He spoke to Natasha a year ago. Simon received Baz’s visit and he can never give that back. Even when the veil opens again in twenty years, who knows if Natasha will come through again now that her message has been delivered.

Baz would know what to say in this situation. Simon has never been good with words. What does someone even say in a situation like this?

“We can come back every year and try. Together. You don’t have to do this alone.”

“The veil doesn’t open again for another eighteen years, Snow. What if she doesn’t come through then? What if she has nothing to say?”

“Did you talk to her?”

“I always do.”

“Then I’m sure she will have something to say. Come on, let’s go home.”

Simon takes Baz’s hand and together they walk through the tunnels, back out of the chapel, and begin their journey home.

I'm...What!? Part 2

Here’s part 2 I’m…What!? Let me know if you want a part 3! 
Part One: http://ashtonsavedmylife12.tumblr.com/post/108099578535/im-what


Your eyes were wide. Your stomach was gurgling. You had no words in response to what your best friend said, “Y/N…” Your best friend whispered poking your arm. “Are you okay?” You simply nodded, unable to speak. You were shocked but yet excited. You were so happy to be having a baby with a guy you’ve been inlove with since you met. Finally you opened your mouth and smiled brightly before hugging your best friend tightly. You two stood their and started crying tears of happiness. You realized right then that you both have come along way in your friendship. You never actually though you two would be best friends when one of you found out you were pregnant.

“You’re going to be an aunty…” You whispered in her ear bringing you closer. She started sniffling a bit. She was excited for you-she was thrilled for you, she knows that you’ve always wanted a baby. Even if the father never wanted to be around, she knew you would raise the baby. But she also knew Michael was different than any other guy you dated, and she knew he wouldn’t leave. She also knew that you guys had been together so long it was like you two you were married. “I need to tell Mikey!” You gasped pulling away. “Do you think I could catch a plan by tomorrow?” You asked your friend walking quickly over to her laptop. You knew the guys were playing in LA for 2 more nights. You scrolled through the times and saw if they still had tickets. And finally you saw one…a plane that was leaving in a few hours with still a few tickets. You bought it and then printed it out. “Looks like I’m leaving tonight..” You giggled grabbing the ticket and your pregnancy test…which you were taking with you. “I need to go pack!”

“Good luck!” Your friend laughed while you headed back home. You couldn’t wait to see the guys…and you couldn’t wait to see the look on Michael’s face.

-Michael’s P.O.V-

I smiled at the guys a bit and then looked at my phone. I feel bad for spamming Y/N with texts and calling her a dozen of times but she hasn’t replied to anything and has not once called me back. I was starting to get worried, “She’s probably busy or asleep.” Ashton smiled at me a bit. The guys seemed to finally calm me down but I still felt jittery. Y/N and I have been through the touring thing before, but a few times she has come with us. But the last time she came on tour with us, we got in a huge fight and when we got home we agreed to never go on tour together again then we made up.

We were all backstage, getting ready for our show that was tonight. “Michael, there’s someone here to see you.” The security guard smiled. I raised my eyebrows and then Y/N walked in. My eyes grew wide and I stood up running to her. I hugged her tightly, spinning her around. She squealed and giggled at me. Once I put her down I kissed her with every single emotion in my body. She responded quickly then I heard a few awkward coughs and groans. We pulled away and she waved at the guys and hugged each one. Y/N got along with all of them-another way we managed to make out relationships work. She was just as close to them as I was. I got jealous every now and then but I always ended up with showing how she is mine.

“Mikey can I talk to you for a minute.” She asked grabbing my hand. I nodded and she pulled me out of the room and down the hallway into the bathroom. “You can’t hate me.” She whispered. My mouth was now getting dried. I was scared. You never say that unless you’ve done something really bad.

“Y/N…?” I whispered while she leaned into her purse that she sat on the counter. She pulled out something and she took in a deep breath.

“In my opinion it’s nothing bad…” She whispered, “But guys think differently than girls..” She held out what she was holding. I quickly took and realized what it was as soon as it hit my hand. A pregnancy test. I looked at it and saw a plus sign.

“Are you…” I whispered. I looked up and saw her nodding. Then I hugged her tightly. I was going to be a father. “I’m going to be a daddy!” I cheered and she started giggling. I kissed her quickly and she kissed back gripping her hands in my shirt. She was crying but so was I. We were crying tears of happiness. I grabbed her hand and pulled her out of the bathroom and back into the dressing room. The boys looked at us, confusion written all over their faces.

“Y/N’s pregnant.” I finally said. The guys started cheering and hugged each of.

“Better name it Luke..” Luke smiled looking at Y/N’s stomach.

“Or Ashton.”

“How about Calum?”

“How about we decided…” I suggested.

“Now now Michael..it’s our baby.” Y/N cooed tapping my nose. The guys started laughing while I sat their and stared at the girl who I knew I wanted to marry.

alaricehawthorne  asked:

i'm gonna chime in here on the discussion, i definetely believe there's some underlying racist/racial stereotypes around when people fancast ronan as black and blue as east asian. because if ronan were black he'd fit the Angry Black Man stereotype (even tho we know why he is that way), and i definetely think there are some negative reasons to why east asian blue is the most popular version of racebent blue in the fandom, i just can't put it into words. cont.

[cont’d] like i saw another blogger point out that nearly every racebent of the gang has some negative connotations, but clearly it just doesn’t work in canon either. like i don’t get racebent gansey because he’s the whitest guy to white, like the books only seem to talk about financial privilege and not white, but gansey is the epitome of privilege, so him being a poc is weird, and like you pointed out, blue is most definetely a white feminist, i mean her feminism is written so white and 1-dimensial tbh and (2/3)

im actually very fond of your reasons why you fc every trc group member as white because if you’d fc them as poc it’d sent the wrong idea, a while ago i saw someone ask for books with asian, preferrably east asian (female) leads and someone replied with “well i havent read the books but every trc edit i’ve seen featured an oriental girl as blue”, and like, people could easily find stuff which states the ethnicity of the characters but it could still happen they dont and get disappointed (3/3)

adel i am sorry this is such a long ass response. be warned it is long. like, SO LONG

two anons who sent me asks about reading blue as east asian: replies to you are in this text!!

before i address what adel is saying

i am not claiming racial diversity in the series isn’t possible, i am saying it is not written into the text. arguing it is canon that ronan is Black or blue is east asian is ultimately more harmful for pocs, in my opinion, for a number of reasons

  1. people who see edits and read the book on the assumption their heritage is represented will likely be disappointed when there is no canon evidence of this representation (proof that edits have influenced reader interpretations under the cut)

  2. it may give the impression that hints and vague descriptions of skin colour are adequate representations of minority groups which homogenises entire groups of people.

    a “brown” girl cannot represent south asians, and latinas, and Black women, and arab women, and some east asian women - like 90% of women in the world - and thus doesn’t accurately represent any woc.

    similarly, blue, who is not only never described to be a asian but also lacks any east asian cultural heritage, can also not be expected to represent east asian women accurately or well. while fans can interpret her any way they want obviously, she cannot be touted as great representation for woc in ya lit as it devalues actual explicit east asian/whatever characters in other books 

arguing racial diversity exists canonically in a series where is doesn’t is not the way to attempt to ‘fix’ the lack of racial diversity in ya. to some extent, it may take away the initiative to write explicitly diverse characters who go to mosque, or speak spanish to their colombian grandma, or are bullied for the colour of their skin and actually represent racial minorities’ appearances and experiences if “brown” and “dark brown” are seen to be sufficient descriptors in representing pocs. 

to summarise: i don’t want to give the impression that the characters cannot be poc. they can. this is a series where magic and dream things exist. Black and asian people can exist too so why don’t they. you can imagine them how you want. no one, including me, can stop you from seeing what you see. i would probably cry tears of joy if you made a “everyone is south asian” au fancast and i saw my culture represented in edits too 

but please don’t claim the canon represents me because i am brown-skinned, or any one else from ethnic backgrounds. ultimately it undermines the drive for explicit representation. 

under the cut i have also put an explanation for why “dark brown” and “brown” also don’t count as good representation if you are interested
