Okay so this is my prompt list for August. Each from Sirius’ mind while he was in Azkaban. They won’t be happy, they will be sad but I need my Wolfstar and Marauders angst and I haven’t written from Sirius’ POV in months. I can relate to him on certain issues quite strongly so we’ll see. They won’t be first person in case you are scared it might be, they will be regular drabbles about the questions or the sentences. There are thirteen of them, a bad omen for another bad omen because why not. I hope I can do this.

ps: In jilytober I’ll do the same with Lily and James, you’ve been warned.

600 followers fic giveaway~

Sooo, I’ve recently reached 600 followers, and I want to celebrate this milestone with a fanfic giveaway~

The fic will be canon character x reader and like my usual headcanons just, well, not headcanons but an actual fic :D

Some rules for the giveaway:

  • Like or reblog this post to enter. Every reblog and like will only count once though.
  • As long as you’re following me anyone can enter!
  • I will choose one winner by a random generator. So everyone has an equal chance.
  • Since this will be an actual fic I will need more time to write it. Of course we can always talk about the plot, but I would appreciate it so much if we could keep it simple (for example prompts such as comfort, protection, dating, confession, breaking/making up, jealousy, affection etc.). Just so you don’t have to wait ages for it to get done ><
  • NSFW is welcome of course.
  • This will end on August 18th. So you have 3 weeks to enter. I will choose and contact the winner afterwards :D

Thank you so much again for following me! Good luck to everyone who participates! :D


Not Quite Hiatus

So just a quick note re: my tumblr. I had a meeting today for a second job. I accepted it a while back without knowing *all* the details. It seems like it’s going to be a really rewarding experience, but it also seems like it’ll be a lot more work than I was anticipating. I initially thought that between this and my online class, it would be like two part-time jobs, but it looks like it’ll more a part-time job (the class) and a full-time job. So my point is, my blog may be inactive for a couple of weeks while I work things out (I need to get some admin stuff for the fall done over the next week because this new job is going to eat up a lot of time when THAT stuff is due–basically I’m trying to be smart and manage my time so I don’t get super stressed).

Anyhoo, I’ll still be around and liking all of YOUR stuff, I just might not be able to refresh my queue or post any of the tattoos I’ve been working on or anything for two or three weeks. This is what I get for being a responsible adult and accepting any job opportunity that comes my way so I can pay off my student loans. XD

No song lyrics today friends
I guess you could say
All time low

Happy Birthday, Frederick Austerlitz aka Fred Astaire! (10 May 1899 – ∞)

“I don’t think that I will plunge the nation into war by stating that Fred Astaire is the greatest tap-dancer in the world." -Robert Benchley.

    Undoubtedly, Fred Astaire was one of the most foremost entertainers of the 20th century. His ethereal dancing abilities and warm and charming screen presence – not to mention, his famous top hat, white tie, and tails, have cemented him in the annals of history as one of the greatest of all time.

    Nobody could have predicted Fred’s meteoric rise to fame and his status as a legend among cinemagoers. When he first arrived in Hollywood in the 1920’s for a screen test, the verdict, "Can’t act, slightly bald, also dances.” Fred later said that wretched screen test was one of the most embarrassing moments of his life, and he simply wished that the ground would open up and swallow him. So, he went back to Broadway, with his talented older sister, Adele, until she retired in 1932. Fred returned to Hollywood in 1933 – where he was signed on by David O. Selznick.

    RKO wasted no time in putting him to work on their latest musical film, which was called Flying Down to Rio. Most importantly, they paired Fred with Ginger – the same Ginger Rogers he had choreographed for (and fallen for) when she was in New York in 1930. Thus, the legendary Astaire/Rogers partnership was born, which was what skyrocketed both dancers to fame. Fred and Ginger built each other up and treated each other as equals – all the while working tirelessly to achieve the high standards that their dances have now become famous for.

    More than that, though, Fred had a burning desire to establish a solo career for himself, and so, he struck out and did it. He was a man who was determined; who knew how to get what he wanted, and a man who stopped at nothing short of perfection. And while it has often been said that Hollywood corrupts people, Fred remained modest, down-to-earth, and polite to everyone he met. (After the filming of Shall We Dance, the extras on the set got together and wrote a letter to the studio head, praising Fred and saying how nice he was.)

    Fred’s screen image is very familiar to generations of movie-watchers – witty, funny, always ready to launch into song and dance – and that speaks volumes about the influence and legacy that he has left for himself. Of a true entertainer, of a talented individual of an almost deity-like status, whose mind stayed firmly on trying to improve himself, with each and every passing moment.
