i'm one of those people now who posts pictures of their cats

I’m trying to narrate this cliche-filled story and it’s just descended into the narrator being sarcastic and critical about everything that happens. Like… 

“And then that asshole walked in. And of course HE’S the protagonist. Heaven forbid we have some LIKABLE person being the hero, but noooo. Mr. Boring McCrustyFuck over here had to be the one with the Special Power.”

“I can think of THREE characters better suited for Protagonist because they, oh, I don’t know, have EXPERIENCE with this stuff? Nah, those characters will probably just help him get the basics of his Special Power. Then he’ll surpass them and beat the guy they couldn’t even beat. Because story logic.”

“Apparently I have to use his actual name because Mr. Boring McCrustyFuck is considered ‘an inappropriate name’ and I ‘have to present myself as a professional’ and that name doesn’t do it.”  

“And then he turned his face, and there she was… Boring Female Love Interest… I mean Caedence. She isn’t like other girls… her name is always underlined in red when you type it. She also knows what a Star War is.”

“Well isn’t CAEDENCE just a sassy lassie. I bet there’ll be NO SEXUAL TENSION WHATSOEVER. A narrator can hope, can’t they?”  

“I swear if they kiss, I’ll walk out right now. Don’t you dare- you barely even know each other and- annnnd they’re kissing. Well, I’m out. I’m done. That’s it. Bye.”

[a large blank space follows]

“Well, I guess I’m not allowed to walk out on narrating after I start. That’s messed up- they’d better be paying me extra for having to sit through this because $5.50 a chapter just isn’t enough.”

“Cue a very audible sigh from the narrator.”

“Oh no… the father figure died… How could I have not seen this… Oh no… and after such a heart warming talk about his dead wife or something… Oh no…”

“So instead of talking about how they’re having sex I thought I’d take this time to explain why cats aren’t actually devil creatures and are simply not naturally social creatures, unlike the dog.” 

“Wow… in that tuxedo, he looks so different! Like… like that one actor… y’know? The one with white skin, blue eyes, brown hair, and a little bit of stubble? Oh wait… that’s literally most of them. I guess that means there’ll be a lot to choose from when they come up with the movie adaption.” 

“God, I can picture online discourse now. “You see, this is why [character with the personality of a moldy cardboard box] should date the protagonist instead of [well-rounded character with good chemistry who also happens to be of color]. I’ve only really pictured them as friends…” Ok, Im-not-a-racist-heres-why-69.” 

“DAMN IT! There was a perfect opportunity to make an obscure 80s reference a few chapters back and I missed it!” 

“Far be it from me, the narrator, to not talk about how soft her blonde hair was, but I got bored after they started kissing for like, the third time in the last few chapters.”

“Ok WHO told the manager I’m still calling him Mr. Boring McCrustyFuck?” 

“And then he sprinted across the battlefield, like an idiot. What was he thinking? “Sure, my love just collapsed on the ground, but l bet if I ran across this battlefield with people trying to literally turn me into ash and cried over their corpse it’ll bring them back. Or I’ll think of their dying face in my crucial moment when I’m fighting the bad guy so I fight harder. Great idea!”  But, you know, he lived ‘cuz he’s the protagonist. It was rather disappointing.”

“And then he started monologuing and it got too hard for me to keep up. So uh… just… imagine a villain talking about how he’s gonna make the world a better place by killing everyone he didn’t understand.”

“Thank GOD the story is over. Cue the beautiful music! I’m getting my money and then I’m gonna bounce. I need a drink.” 

“Who is the author? I’m gonna fight the author. Oh, I’M the author? … I’m still gonna fight the author.” 

anonymous asked:

I really love your blog!! I really enjoyed the Openings for Itadaki no Keshiki and Revival, and I'm just bursting to hear about how Winners and Losers' Opening is specifically

So I’m actually going to answer this question out of the set because it asks specifically for a ‘review’ of a part of Winners and Losers and I was making posts for that anyway.  Full answer under the Read More to avoid spoiling anyone who would rather wait until the September DVD release.  Also because it’s long.

I keep seeing "blogs Homestuck characters would have” and I'm going to set the record straight

 John: 2010 memes and tutorials on practical jokes. He posted a screamer once but a follower told him that was fucked up and he deleted it and never did again. Sends kind anon messages. Basically the leader of a whole friend group, seems to know everyone personally? He and Jane have running arguments about cake. 

Dave: aesthetic pictures of swords that he’s glitched beyond recognition, his own “art”, basically a tumblr funnyman along the lines of like, slimetony, but with more SBAHJ. Lots of weird niche memes, makes his own music and it’s actually really good. 

Rose: “Welcome to my twisted mind” is her header, no one can tell if she’s serious or not. “Here’s how to summon a demon” kind of tumblr witch. Probably the reason people in that world worry about the literal Stealing of Human Bones.

Jade: “I will take care of you with crystal energy” kind of tumblr witch. Lots of pictures of dogs and other cute animals! Didn’t really figure out that you don’t have to add comments to every post you see but it’s okay because she’s super sweet. Someone once sent mean messages to her and her friends and she took them down so brutally and effectively that they deleted. Everyone’s a little scared of her but they love her so much.

Roxy: Used to post a lot of positivity for others along with a lot of self-hate, later revamped and is all about positivity all around. Also sends kind messages. When she deletes things They Stay Gone. Despite Dave’s popularity her posts circulate the most and it’s not uncommon for them to go around 4 or 5 times on everyone’s dash per week. She’s just nice. Once someone yelled at her for her posts about booze and alcoholism way back and she did the internet version of sitting them down and talking earnestly about addiction. They apologized. She said it was okay but never do that again because no one owes you their life story. Running series of “jokes” with Jane about being married, eventually they start dating.

Jane: tumblr version of those surreal food bloggers. She posts tons of recipes but they’ve got kinda weird shit in the background like “obey” in tiny font on the pictures and the descriptions are vague. Basically food gothic. Also posts terrible jokes and puns, on occasion starts discourse in the utensil and cake mix fandoms. Also posts A TON of comedians, Parks & Rec gifs of Ron Swanson, and makes gifsets of her favorite black-and-white noir detective films. Posts selfies of herself in a mustache. Replies to anon hate with stuff like “Listen, buster, I have literally dealt with attempts on my life. I have received letter bombs from people angry with my family’s cake mix. You don’t scare me.” Once had a huge breakdown though. Everyone ships her and Roxy.

Dirk: Made a tumblr bot called, like, “halbotover9000″ or something, but it became sentient and started making callout posts for him and ruining his friendships. It went inactive for a while and everyone assumed he deleted the bot, but really he just passed it on to Equius. When it resurfaces there are just tons of posts about milk and horses.

Jake: He has no idea what he’s doing, how do you use tumblr, can everyone see these posts? Here’s a cool rock he found in the forest. Starts a whole Gigantic Tumblr Anger Thing, is totally oblivious until it all crashes down. Deletes his blog for a while and then makes a new one in which he barely interacts with anyone ever but he seems somewhat happier. Puts tags in the description like Jade, but more unintentional.

Aradia: Similar to Rose, but posts WAY more depression memes. Also her blog has a lot of archaeology stuff? Talks about time travel a lot, too. Really enthusiastic or totally apathetic there is no in-between. Has an elaborate ongoing roleplaying scenario with Vriska, Tavros, and Terezi. When Vriska hurt Tavros, she set a bunch of her followers (she calls them “ghosties”) on Vriska, which ended with Vriska doxxing her. She came back though, in a quasi-relationship with Equius, who she broke up with after discovering lesbianism. Now gay as hell.

Tavros: POKEMON! GOTTA CATCH EM ALL! He posts a lot of stuff about the Peter Pan movies, books, musicals, etc. Reblogs posts about being disabled and also posts about self-esteem and how to build it. Is constantly being torn down by Vriska, eventually tells her to fuck off but not until WAY after the incident. He posts stuff about keeping animals, especially cows.

Sollux: Who are we kidding, he’s on reddit. He says it’s because it’s cooler but he’s really just sort of scared. 

Karkat: His blog is Emo™. He posts sad song lyrics, rom-com gifs, and FUCKTONS OF ANGRY POSTS ABOUT PEOPLE WHO DON’T LIKE WHAT HE LIKES. All his writing is in all caps, people ask why. He says it’s because the world has earned his rage. Really the caps button got stuck a long time ago and he got used to it and now lower case looks weird.

Nepeta: Cat gifs cat gifs cat gifs!!!!! Volunteers at an animal shelter, posts about kitties looking to get adopted. Super sweet. Lowkey a furry and interacts on those “open rp” posts only to get made fun of, doesn’t really understand it. Gets a ton of anon hate for no reason? But she’s friends with Equius and Equius is………. uh…….. so eventually people leave her alone. She’s listed as a “cringey” blog sometimes but everyone who actually follows her thinks she’s adorable and is a little happier when they see her on their dash. 

Kanaya: Lesbian Blog. Inserts herself into tumblr drama all the time to mediate, mostly ends up making things worse. Got so mad at Eridan that he deleted his blog, is very proud of this. Posts pictures of herself with her chainsaw and elaborate topiaries. Fashion aesthetic. People reblog her selfies with “holy shit step on me” and “I’m too gay” and she loves it.

Terezi: get ready for that shitty leetspeak, it’s ya gal Terezi Pyrope here with so many gotdamn bright colors that your eyes will spin. You thought Dave had a bad theme? She’s got the worst one. Posts memes about everything. Roleplays with Nepeta sometimes and no one can tell if it’s sincere. Used to roleplay with Vriska but they had a horrible fight which ended in a way people don’t really know but afterwards she got someone to post a picture of her with bandages all around her eyes and the caption “1M BL1ND NOW YOU DUMB FUCKS”. People tried to call her out but damn she is. She is the law. Don’t try that shit on her she’ll destroy you.

Vriska: The literal worst. holy shit. Has done most of the terrible shit in the book. Scams people, doxxes them, sends SHITTONS of anon hate. Spams the block button on anyone who calls her out and then posts infinite shit about them. Pulls receipts. But she’s holy shit pretty and has a legion of loyal followers who are just as willing to attack people because she Can Do No Wrong. A few people know about her awful home life but she warned them not to spread it on pain of death. Ran a fortune-telling blog but it was Bad Shit. Spiders, so many spiders.

Equius: Fetish blog he doesn’t know is a fetish blog.

Gamzee: ………….part of the clown uprising???

Eridan: “Eridan Ampora. 13. Male. Bisexual but don’t let it fuckin fool you I don’t take shit. White. My family has money. Basically everything tumblr hates. Women are bitches haha amiright?” Constantly posts about how he can’t get a date, also posts… wow some terrible shit. Also history, for some reason? And selfies with his rifle collection. 

Feferi: ENDLESS CUTTLEFISH PICTURES. ENDLESS. SO MANY FISH PUNS! SHE TAKES PICTURES OF HER FISH AND GIVES THEM CUTE CAPTIONS. Was friends with Eridan for a while, eventually realized how terrible he was and left.

That’s how a superhero learns to fly

I can’t believe the first thing I’m doing with this tumblr is publishing a Ladybug Fanfic. I’m trash.

Name: That’s how a superhero learns to fly

Words: 2607 (right now it’s a one shot, but I will maybe write something else)

Characters: Adrien Agreste [main], Marinette Cheng, Nino, Plagg, Alya (kinda)

Pairing: Ladynoir trash, guys

Note: English is not my first language, so I’m really sorry if there are any mistakes. Moreovre, I swear I write way better in French, but for some reason I really wanted to try that in English. 


Adrien would have loved to say that he was a born hero, someone who knew from the very beginning that he could make a difference. Unfortunately, he was not. Not at all.


When he got his ring, he was scared. So, so scared. Such a tiny jewelry contained powers he had no idea could exist. And it was his. What was he supposed to do with it? Plagg, his kwami, explained him that he was not the first person to posses the miracle stone, and that he would not be the last.

“What did they do with those powers?” Andrien asked, his voice slightly shaking from anticipation.

For the first time since the beginning of their conversation, Plagg let go of the Camembert that Adrien had to buy for him to finally open up a bit, and looked directly at the human, his cat-like eyes shining like two little orbs.

“Well, some of them became “heroes”, saving their city. Some of them used the ring for their own benefit, and would now be called “villains”, which is ridiculous, if you ask me. Yet, it was always their choice. I only help when I am asked nicely. What do you want to do, Adrien?“

this sounds a little bit biased but if you ask me which my favorite line in seventeen is, i would never hesitate to answer that it’s 95line. it does not necessarily mean i don’t care about other members; because in fact i adore them a lot and i adore them all (as much as a mother hen can, fussing over her kids). it’s just that i have a really soft spot for the 95line.

first, there’s choi seungcheol who is just a kid (he’s almost 22 i know but i’m older than him so he’s still a kid in my eyes). yet being the leader he is, he is always the one who takes the first act, takes the hard works and puts other members before himself. he (together with booseoksoon) brightens up the atmosphere when things go downhill, and makes effort to understand others when they are being difficult or seem to shut out to the outside (yes i’m talking about jihoon). he tries to get all members on good terms with each other, bring them together and solve problems with a mindset of “let’s all calm down and avoid quarrels please”. he’s playful and can be such a dork too; there are times the members are embarrassed with his antics, but above all he is a softie at heart who truly cares for his brothers (i still remember him always hugging or lifting samuel up so the kid could keep up with any game the boys were playing). Besides, with all his years of training i feel he has that kind of aura, the “becoming mature early because i need to” (and not only him but also other members as well, especially vernon, because this is entertainment industry and the competitiveness is fierce). i think, or believe, he can make a good leader who can connect the members, yet still have a rational mindset and not let the emotional side take a toll. and you know that one of the most important factors of a successful group is a good leader, right? (rap monster of bts or kim sunggyu of infinite for example. i adore those two a lot, too).

next is yoon jeonghan. yoon jeonghan, yoon jeonghan, yoon jeonghan. i have mentioned this before in another post but still want to repeat it again, that i feel like our personalities is pretty much alike, at least in a few aspects. from the “flirty” tactics *face-palm* to the somewhat kind and caring characteristic toward others. we are both acting like a sloth sometimes too (just watch one fine day and most of his screen time in the first two eps is about him lying/sleeping haha). okay kidding here. the main point i want to talk about jeonghan whenever thinking of him is that to me he feels kind of “distant”. i don’t talk about such aspect in a bad way, don’t get me wrong. what i mean is that he has this vibe, which i interpret as “while he’s kind and nice and friendly to everyone he knows, he’s truly, hardly close to anybody”. he cherishes his friends, his members, his fans a lot, the feelings are real and he basks himself in the attention people give him because that is how his nature functions. however there are only a few people whom he lets in his comfort zone, whom he’s being very attentive to and whose attention he actually look forward to getting. this is my own mere opinion, so please don’t take it too serious. i don’t know about the boy in real life either and he can be pretty much different from whom i assume him to be. just try playing a psychiatrist here cause i always want to become one *shrugs*

and last but not least there is joshua hong, my bias. all of a sudden it’s a bit hard to write about him like this *laugh*. i just know that i like him a lot, and that’s a fact. among seventeen there’s only one member who can make my heart flutter and make me blush or squeal uncontrollably, and “sadly” it’s wonwoo =)) because whenever I look at jisoo, there is only this type of feeling i can describe as “maternal instinct” resurfacing. at first i noticed him because of his cat-like features (i am more of a cat person who’s probably going to end up being single till 80, surrounded with thousands of cats), next his voice, his guitar skills, then later his shy, adorably awkward, clumsy antics. and now his dorky image recently =)) (i would not say at first it was not a shock to me, a pleasant shock, but thinking back again he sometimes came up with silly stuffs during 17tv era anyway, so it’s only now his time to shine LOL). compared to other members he is pretty quiet (minghao is another case thou he hardly speaks either, because i believe that boy is very sassy =)) his korean is just not good enough for him to express constantly), sometimes he can just space out and be like “i’m not here with you”, but he speaks and acts when it’s necessary and he smiles his gentle smile and i think maybe that’s the reason why i adore him. also he has such vibe of a cat who is constantly in need of affection, attention and care, thou he hardly does a thing to call for attention and i think i am not the only one who feels so =))

even before one fine day being aired, i always joke that when being confused between jeongcheol and jihan, ship cheolsoo (tbh i’m sick of fan wars due to different ships. every fandom i’m in, every couple i ship has to deal with it. like can you just appreciate others’ opinions and mind your own ship?) it’s half of a joke half of a fact, because a part of me was curious to see how those two interact with each other. there were some fan-taken pictures and interviews but they were not enough. my friend even suggested things like “what if they are awkward around each other?” and i was like “i can’t accept your theory dear i don’t want to believe that at all that hurts my heart *added dramatic gasps here*”. then one day (recently), a short fancam in which jisoo wiped seungcheol’s sweaty forehead in a perf was published and i was like “what the heck is happening??? my feel!!!” and the most interesting thing is that jeonghan was sitting between them, but jisoo skipped him just to get to seungcheol.

that was when i thought maybe there is still more for me to observe. entered that show one fine day and i died (metaphorically of course) at only ep 2. the way seungcheol let jisoo used his arm as a pillow is too much for me to handle and when the older pulled him in closer, i was squealing so loud that my sister actually gave me stink eyes. i don’t know whether it’s really just me not being attentive enough and only realizing things late or not, but i finally can see and can say that cheolsoo are not awkward together. i don’t even know them off-screen how could i think of myself so high, like I can see everything *sigh* but yeah, before this i always think of those three as a scale, with jeonghan as the central point which balances the other two. now i view them more of an equilateral triangle. that sounds almost perfect to me :) and what i mention here is all about their friendship (i’m still jihan trash and not actually into polyamory, thank you).

another assumption i made for fun (and still strongly support) is that seungcheol and jisoo are two members jeonghan is most close to (i believe he mostly devotes his attention to jisoo and let seungcheol devotes his attention to him because that’s how their relationship works LOL).

Hiya everyone! With the amount of fics I read, and as people sometimes ask me for recs, here it is. My oldies and newbies but goodies fic rec, with both new and older fics that I liked/loved, that I read for the first time or re-read, or alternatively and very creatively titled “Weekly Fic Recs” (this one is a bit late because of some issues with Tumblr). In no particular order:

1. Fire For A Heart, by  @stylinscripts  and @tvshows-addict

The Grey’s anatomy/Chicago Fire AU no one asked for where Louis is the captain of the firefighting Squad 78, Harry is a surgeon, Zayn is Louis’ second in command and Liam is the rookie. Niall and Sam are Harry’s fellow residents and have their own affair going on. (Aka, “the Toast Fic”. Listen, read this, you won’t regret it. Warning: Major character death, but it happens in the 2nd chapter and the first chapter can be read on its own and it’s soo good and fluffy and smutty (the death chapter is very very well written though if you want to read it).

2. All the Right Moves, by @cherrystreet

This is the third game in a row that Harry has been distracted by the noisy boy in the stands, five rows back. There’s really no reason that he should feel compelled to stare into the audience as frequently as he is, but he can’t help it. This boy is a nuisance. And he’s loud. Even from basketball court with nine other players running by him, shoes squeaking on the shiny hardwood floor, and thousands of cheering college students, Harry can hear this boy nearly shrieking, his laugh more like a cackle than anything. It’s seriously obnoxious. (Honestly, I recommend reading anything by this author who is definitely one of my favs. This story is cute and funny and just amazingly well-written.)

3. You watched me sink, by bananasandboots (@anylessreal

They’ve discussed it a few times - the boyfriend thing. It’s not like it’s some forbidden, horrific, abandon hope all ye who talk about furthering the relationshipsort of subject. They’re mature adults. They’re in tune with their feelings, their hearts’ desires, the way those butterflies swoop in their bellies whenever they so much as hold each other’s hands. They like each other. A lot. It’s mutual, they know. But for now, they’re just content to enjoy the simplicity of what they have, and what they have is great. When dating in secret stops being enough, then they’ll discuss that too.

Or, the one where Harry teaches Sex Ed and sneaks around with the drama teacher, and doesn’t realize how out of tune he is with his true feelings until everyone else figures it out for him.

(Hot, and cute, and funny, and slightly angtsy, and then funny, and cute, and HOT.)

4. a fully armed battalion (to remind you of my love), by anonymous for the H/L Spring Exchange

Everyone at Hogwarts knows that Professor Styles and Professor Tomlinson absolutely despise each other. It’s too bad that they’re in love.

(It’s BOTH an Enemies to Lovers AND a HP AU. What more do you want?)

5. baby got blue eyes by @bottomlinsons

A college/uni fic. Harry has been working on a mural and has been struggling to find the right shade of blue. Until he meets Louis. (Essentially, a very silly take on what could have otherwise been an incredibly romantic tale!)

(I like this author very much a lot and this one-shot definitely didn’t disappoint. Clumsy goofy Harry is the best kind of Harry.)

Why is it so difficult for people to believe that she’s just a genuinely nice person?

The thing wrong with this is that people can’t accept that she’s generous and kind and a fucking godsend to her fans that they have to make these shitty comments on how it’s all a facade she puts on.

Why can’t people nowadays be nice to be nice? Why do they have to be ‘too nice’? Why is it so hard for people to believe that a person can be nice without actually being fake? You’re all so stuck on this idea that Taylor has some kind of hidden agenda.

Let me tell you something, if she was to storm off stage in a bad mood, or if she was ignorant to her fans, or if she gave the paparazzi the finger, she’d be adored and praised. Because the more arrogant you are the more idolised you become in today’s society because it automatically makes you seem 'real’. I think that’s why people are so thirsty for her to mess up. Taylor doesn’t create any drama so people have to create it for her and I think that explains exactly the reason why people say things like this. Because her fame hasn’t went to her head people automatically assume that she’s not this kind sweetheart everyone says she is.

Taylor can’t even invite guests on her tour you all say she’s just trying to 'boost her fame’ she’s Taylor fucking Swift as if she’d need to boost her fucking career. No, she invited those guests on tour for the simple fact that she wanted her fans to have the best night of their lives. For them to get the most out of their hard earned money they spent on tickets. For them to be able to say “do you remember the night we went to see Taylor Swift and then Lisa Kudrow came on stage as Phoebe and they sang Smelly Cat?” Everything she does is to benefit someone in some way.

Do you know how long it must have taken her to HANDPICK all of those presents she sent to her fans for Christmas and for Valentine’s Day? She took time out of her ridiculously crazy life to make sure she got presents that particular person would actually like. Her. Not her label, not Taylor Nation, not someone she hired to throw a couple of pens and badges into a bag. Her. Taylor Alison Swift spent her free time choosing individual presents and actually wrapped and posted them herself. Do you not get how fucking insanely amazing that is?

She took the time to stalk us on here and choose who she wanted to invite to her house to hear her album early. She spends time choosing who she wants to meet at her shows for FREE. She sits up to the AM liking and replying to fans posts and following fans. She goes above and beyond for us and yet you call her fake.

She donated thousands and thousands of dollars to charities. I’ll also mention she does this discretely. She pops up randomly on people’s 'go fund me’ accounts and she even paid for a fans college tuition. She donated $15,000 to a firefighter who saved his own family from a car accident. But that’s all a facade right?

She has physically chased fans wearing her merchandise around the town that she’s in just so she can meet them and get pictures with them.

You say she’s too nice to be real but take a moment and think about the amount of people on the entire face of the earth that has met Taylor, have you ever seen anyone say she was rude or ignorant or fake? Your faves have more than likely met her and have nothing to say about her but praise and adoration. Don’t you think if she was this fake bitch we’d all know about this by now? The years she’s been in this industry and she’s yet to make a wrong move. Even the ones that admit they thought people were exaggerating when they talk about how much of a sweetheart she is, come out and say that she is genuinely a sweet and caring person. I just don’t understand how people are still so dense to think she’s fake.

Not to mention she’s sending goodie bags to every guest that has been on tour with her as a thank you. She doesn’t need to spend her time doing that but she did

Because SHE’S A GENUINELY NICE PERSON!

Instead of trying to think up excuses for your “Let’s all hate on Taylor Swift” charade, why don’t you go and do something productive.

“No matter what happens in life, be good to people. Being good to people is a wonderful legacy to leave behind.”

Goodnight.

second-stringer  asked:

Oooh, I'd love to see a drabble from the missing 5 years between California AU parts 1 & 2. Since you've said Clarke had a drinking problem, maybe she's very drunk and missing Lexa ft. Good friend Raven taking care of her and making sure she doesn't drunk dial Lexa? Anything you wanna do really, I'm just throwing ideas out lol I'm a slut for California AU.

She’s a mess.

Raven knows that well enough by now. Clarke has been her best friend since they were fourteen. Hell, for a little while they were more than that but it was never meant to last. Clarke needed an outlet and well, so did she. But if there was one thing that dating Clarke taught her that being her best friend never did is that her heart? It’s always full. Though the content of it might always belong to the girl she picked up off of the curb.

Lexa.

Before Lexa, Raven could count on one hand the amount of times she’d seen Clarke Griffin cry. Most of those occurred right after her Father died. But now she’d lost track. Raven had never gotten all of the details, Clarke often breaking down before she could get past ‘I love her, I love her so much’.

And maybe it’s the fact that people who love her keep leaving - Raven’s been able to keep track of only a few but she knows Clarke has issues with abandonment. Lexa was just the final stake to her too full heart.

Currently, Clarke has a bottle of tequila gripped in a fist. She’s finished more than half of it, on her own, and Clarke had called her before she even started drinking. “I’m opening this bottle and it’s been a rough day,” she’d said and Raven knew what she meant. She might be unwilling to admit that she needs anybody these days but Raven isn’t dense enough to pretend she didn’t hear the desperation in her voice. Clarke needed her. And she would be there. That’s what best friends did.

ore-love-kisama  asked:

Hi! i hope i'm not bothering you but i was curious about how you managed to juggle life and fandom since a lot of fanfic writer retire because life (work, family, etc) simply take over and/or they lost the feel for it. It always makes me sad when fanfic writers retire and since you're one of my favorite fanfic writers, I was hoping you aren't planning on retiring anytime soon.

Aw, that’s very sweet of you, thank you!

I have no plans to quit, honestly, but there are days when it does seem like more of a struggle than it should be.  

I posted a bunch of requests about different fics right before this, not because I was unhappy about them, not because I was trying to embarrass the people who sent them, but simply because I thought some public reassurance might cut down on the number of them that I get.

Let me make it clear: all of those asks, all of the ones I’ve been receiving have been polite, kind, and well-intentioned.  They are simply looking for information which, at this point, only I can provide. Will this be done?  When will it be done?  Are you writing this, will you write this?

And the only answer I can provide right now is, “I’m working on it, and I’m trying.”  It’s not much, but I’m trying to be honest.  I’m trying.  That’s all I’ve got right now.

On some level, I’m always afraid that the things I want to write are not the things that anyone wants to read.  I’m afraid of disappointing people.  I’m afraid of that, because on some level, I’m still the child who desperately liked getting the gold stars, even if it didn’t happen very often.  So I’m perpetually torn.

The Big Bang fics are pretty much the symptom of that.  I write stories that have nothing to do with anything else, that have been bubbling away in my head, and they never seem to catch on with others the way they do with m.  Maybe it’s just not what people were expecting, or just that because they are posted all at once, people read them and walk away without remembering to hit the kudos or leave a comment.

But occasionally I’m left, wondering if the things I most wanted to write are the things people least want to read.

I’ve written stories in my head since before I knew what stories were.  My father is dyslexic, a poor reader who hid his struggles the way a lot of dyslexics do, with a keen memory and a fast mind.  To this day, he can’t read rhyming books to my nieces.  The Cat and the Hat is a nightmare for him, his brain jumping ahead, trying to find the word before it appears on the page.

His coping mechanism, with his children, was to make up the story as he went along.  He would rewrite the story as he told it, suiting it to the pictures, to our mood.  He would tell of grand adventures of characters who didn’t exist, and when I pointed out that there was no chicken wearing a superman cape in the picture, Dad would just point.

“He’s behind that tree,” he would say, and I believed him.

I was in school before I realized that books had an ending.  That the words should always be the same.  That there were no interludes of sneaky thieves and funny bears and super chickens to be found in those pages.

That my father was a better storyteller than the books were.

The book always read the same way, when my teachers made me read it.  But it was too late, by that point.  I’d figured it out.  There were stories that the stories didn’t tell. There were people in the pictures that the story never talked about.  There were things no one ever mentioned.  And now, I wondered about them.

I’ve always told stories.  I always will, I suppose.  And I think when I leave fandom, it’s because the stories I tell aren’t of interest to anyone else anymore. When the stories I want to write, aren’t the ones anyone wants to read.

I guess at that point, I’ll go back to imagining what happens between the pages. 8)

Rules:

1. Always post the rules.
2. Answer the questions from the person who tagged you and write eleven new ones.
3. Tag eleven people and link them to the post.
4. Actually tell them you’ve tagged them.

1. Would you consider King Candy - or Turbo - a redeemable character? Could it work, or would the characters need to be changed?

While I do see Turbo as a more reprehensible character, I also believe that Turbo could be redeemable if the writing is done right, but I don’t think his redemption should be quick. It probably would take a long while before someone who destroyed two games and reprogrammed another for 15 years can even be considered trustworthy again.
Even then, he still has to take responsibility for all the bad things he’s done, it can’t just be swept under the rug and forgotten.
Not sure if his character would be tweaked because of it, though. Depends on his motives for redeeming himself.

2. Scenario: The Upcoming Disney Movie, Maleficent, has proven a huge success… But, due to the popularity of Angelina Jolie’s portrayal of the Mistress of all Evil, they’re considering replacing the original with the new version, or changing the design so that the original bared Angelina Jolie’s appearance.

Whether the film is a success or not, how would that make you feel?

Not sure how to feel about that, really. I do like Mal’s original design better i guess.

3. Scenario: The Upcoming Disney Movie, Maleficent, has proven a huge success. So that means that Disney is going to be making more movies based around past villains perspective! However, they have changed the characterization of the other, major characters, in order to make the villain - now given the role of protagonist - a sympathetic backstory, and ultimately the true hero of the tale.

How would that make you feel?

Depends, kinda. If the Villain has some more redeemable qualities then I wouldn’t mind seeing them in a more sympathetic light.

4. Aside from Home on the Range and Chicken Little, The Black Cauldron is regarded as one of the least memorable entries in the Animated Canon of Disney. If you are familiar with this animated feature, what are your thoughts on it? Would the Animated Canon have been better off, or does the movie deserve more recognition?

I remember watching it a few years back. It was an ok movie, but i barely remember the details of it since its been so long heh;;; I guess it could use some more recognition, though, since most people don’t even know of its existance.

5. Computer Generated Imagery is good. But so is Hand-Drawn Animation, in my opinion. But, as of late, it would appear as though Hand-Drawn Animation has been thrown away, in favor of CGI. Not only by Disney, but by other studios as well(DreamWorks). Not saying that they should ditch CGI and go back to hand-drawn animating, but don’t you think it would be nice if they did release a hand-drawn animated feature, and not just a short film?

Yes please. I’m all up for cgi animation but it would be nice to see some good old fashioned hand drawn animation again! And maybe do some of it myself if I ever get my dream job of working at one of those studios.

6. Disney is made for kids. Right, or wrong?

No, at least not just for kids. Walt once said (and correct me if I’m wrong) that he wanted the Disney parks to be enjoyable for the young and old alike, and the same goes for the movies they make as well. Though, sadly, it does seem like the company has forgotten about this recently…

7. Scenario: OH MAN! It looks like Disney has gone and purchased the Lord of the Rings and Hobbit franchises! What are your thoughts?

i
haven’t seen LOTR yet….  he h;;;;;

8. One thing that has me sort of bugged is the change from ‘Walt Disney Pictures’ to simply ‘Disney’. What are your thoughts on this? Should they have kept Walt’s name?

mmmm i dunno,,

9. Have you heard of Pirates of the Caribbean Online, or ToonTown? Have you played any of Disney’s MMO’s, before they decided to pull the plug and shut them down?

Ive heard of them, but never got to play them actually;;

10. Name 5 of your favorite OTP’s, canon or otherwise?

1. Jack and Sally (the first ever one)
2. Milo and Kida
3. Hero’s Cuties yes
4. Doppler and Amelia
5. Chelley wait thats not a Disney ship

11. Name 5 NOTP’s, canon or otherwise?
eeehhhh i dont have any NOTP’s
I’m either interested in a ship or feel an absolutely devastating sense of apathy toward it, i don’t think i’ve ever hated a ship before.

My questions:
1. Which Disney movie did you watch most as a kid, if Disney was a part of your childhood?
2. Have you ever been to one of the Parks? If so, how many times have you gone?
3. What are your thoughts on Disney’s Revival era? Do you think they’re still making quality animated movies?
4. Favorite hero? Villain?
5. Out of all the Animation Studios, which do you like the best?
6. Any movies in particular that you’re exited for this year?
7.  Which medium of animation do you find most appealing? (CGI, hand drawn, stop motion, etc.)
8. Which animated movie would you say has influenced you the most, if any?
9. Which story/novel would you like to see get a good movie adaptation?
10. Would you consider Animation an art form?
11. And for a filler question; dogs or cats?

les amis + hipster AU

At first glance, Enjolras looks like your typical upper-middle class hipster: incredibly attractive - he was very popular in high school -, with trendy clothes that are very tight and expensive accessories, longish hair that smells vaguely of strawberries. He always wears sunglasses, drinks very expensive coffee in indie coffee shops, and always has the lastest technology devices as he works on his Master’s thesis and writes on his social justice blog. He’s still the quiet, very intense man we know and love, but he’s considered a somewhat elusive fashion icon, and paparazzi swarm to catch pictures of him during protests. (insp., Gabriel Nadeau-Dubois, at the power of a hundred.)

Combeferre is, without a doubt, the academic hipster. Wears a lot of grandpa sweaters, he listens to music almost exclusively on vinyl, needs those glasses - although his eyesight is not as bad as people often assume - , and is fascinated by food from all around the world. He’s travelled a lot; more than any of the other amis, except maybe Bahorel, and his apartment is filled with souvenirs. He likes writing on an old typewritter he found in this flea market he goes to every week in search of old, rare books that could have somehow found themselves in that place - he thens sells them again - along with lots of other books - in the small used bookstore he owns.

Courfeyrac is the party hipster. He loves bowties, shirts with funny patterns, and coloured skinny jeans. The 80s are a source of eternal happiness for him, especially its movies, even though his driver’s license confirms that he was born in 1990 (to his eternal sorrow). He loves to dye his hair all sorts of different colours. He’s invented at least ten new dance styles in the past five years, and ‘discovered’ more bands than he can count. He blogs with Enjolras, has a popular youtube channel, and Bahorel and him bicker constantly over on Instagram. He’s excellent with a camera and a Photoshop pro.

Prouvaire wears a lot of loose clothes inspired by - well, no one is really sure, but it’s a bit old fashioned, often unfortunate, and also nature. He’s a ‘natural’ hipster, sighs longingly, thinking of how life was simpler in the country - though he’s actually a city boy, born and bred. Very fervent environmental activist. He writes by hand in dark corners of coffee shops, sipping on the same chamomile tea for hours but tipping generously. He tries DIY projects weekly, but rarely finishes them. He has a smooth, deep, almost ethereal singing voice, but is a pretty bad musician otherwise. Owns so many plants. He has a few aesthetic blogs and likes to hang out at Combeferre’s bookstore.

Feuilly is an accidental hipster. He shops in thrift stores - along with Prouvaire and Courfeyrac - because it’s cheaper and he wants to encourage local businesses. Wears layers and layers of sweaters and scarves, and these big glasses are because he can’t afford to get new ones without ensurance, he hadn’t even realised they were back in style! Often has ink or charcoal stains all over his hands, which makes some boys and girls and non-binary cuties swoon a little when he shows up at the coffee shop, or during the night classes he takes at the local community college. You probably haven’t heard of his favourite movies. Shows up a lot in Courfeyrac’s and Bahorel’s instagrams, with a hashtags #how, #why, and #unfair.

Bahorel is a douchester: muscular, tattoed, pierced, and bearded, he takes care of his body more than all of the others combined. Hasn’t gotten rid of all his v-neck shirts, which he now often pairs with old jeans and flannels. He’s into outdoor sports, but also coffee - he’s a coffee pro - and cooking. Frequents an old-style barber shop, can play both the drums and the guitar, and is, really, the selfie king of the group. He posts recipes online quite often, and is a surprisingly (or not, if you know him) great baker. He loves to organize different activities for kids who might otherwise not get to participate much, for various reasons.

Bossuet is another fashionable hipster, who likes to be aware of the trends then find cheap ways to immitate them - turtlenecks, vests, scarves, beanies and hats - though he always wears the same worn-down sneakers. He’s also a great musician and and incredible flirt. Is really good at make-up - his and Joly’s nails are always painted different colours. He has a youtube channel in which he talks a lot about disability and accessibility, and also tricks on how to make it on a small budget.

Joly is a hipster geek; also, one of the less hipster-ish of the group, when it comes down to it, though, well, with the company he keeps… Well, he pulls off cute-nerdy-hipster very well. His real passion is science fiction and also science in general - also weird-looking animals. Most of his tshirts illustrate one of these three things. Loves cats, also watching shows on Netflix, and tea. He has so much tea.

Grantaire is total normcore. He takes great efforts in appearing like he doesn’t give a rat’s ass about fashion and appearance, but it’s untrue. Aknowledges that he’ll never pull of the trendy outfits Enjolras wears; thus, he adopted normcore pretty quickly: baseball caps, denim shirts, too-big trousers… He knows all the best, underrated (for now) places to eat and drink, and is a great photographer. Can play the harmonica. His twitter is his only social media presence, and is usually a very snarky run of comments on the news and other events. Loves pugs.

what solavellan babies? tell me about these solavellan babies please? how did lavellan tell solas about these babies? was he even there for her? tell me more

Oh boy

This is gonna get long

I have two Solavellan babies, I call them my Dread Pups, their names are Faelan and Calla, they are fraternal twins. Both are mages. 

Calla is fiery, fierce, sharped tongued, headstrong. She is the one who played magical pranks on people well into her teens. She has a legendary temper and will never lose and argument. However she usually is smart enough to know not to get into a fight she cannot win, though her temper has gotten the better of her before. She is skilled in the ancient and little-known art of shapeshifting. Her favored forms being a wolf, raven, and cat, though she does know a few others, such as a doe. She is older by seven minutes and likes to refer to Faelan as her little brother (much to his annoyance.) If we are in the timeline where she is born in Skyhold (yes I have multiple timelines) she becomes fascinated with the frescoes in the rotunda and becomes rather skilled at it. She shows a surprising amount of patience with it despite her fiery personality. 

Faelan is calm, collected, wise, patient. He could often be found in the library buried to his neck in books or asking his parents for ancient stories since he was a very young child. He would assess a fight before entering it, always making sure the barriers were strong and any wounds were healed quickly and efficiently. He is skilled in the almost unheard of art of Dreaming, wandering the Fade and speaking to spirits. He is smart enough not to be tempted even when some took the form…of a man he never met. He becomes well versed in the stories and language of his culture, learning all he can to share with others.

Both twins would die for each other without a second thought. Calla makes sure Faelan achieves dreams in the real world and Faelan ensures that Calla never gets into something she can’t handle. They balance each other out in this sense, they have since they were children. 

If you’ve read this far congratulations! There’s a lot more
