i'm sorry this got rambly

I was gonna reply the user, but I don’t like discourse and arguments and didn’t want to lose followers because of a fight, so I just blocked them.

But like why in the world would you add a completely negative reply on my post that’s me just to be positive (and it was not the first time I saw this user doing stuff like that on Arc V posts).

There are anti-tags, or you could just rant about it on your own blog so for the love of god don’t add onto my post about your bitchness that I couldnt give two fucks about.

Is Arc-V perfect? No of course not it has a lot problems, including Yuzus writing. But newflash: none of the YGO series are perfect and it all depends on the person on which one is your favorite (I absolutely loathe the terms ‘best’ and ‘worst’ because you’re just trying to make your opinion a fact).

But Arc V makes me so happy just thinking about it, and that’s what I care for in a series. Arc V this semester has been my grounder for when I got to anxious or my RSD started acting up, and I’ve met so many awesome people cause of it and got back into writing fan fiction because of the series.

Morale of the story, don’t put your negativity on someone else’s post about something they enjoy you don’t know why they like the series so much and most likely don’t appreciate you trying to ruin something they hold dear. Also either I’m either getting really bitter or tired of people’s bullshit because as of now I’ve blocked more people in the YGO fandom then any other fandom and I’ve been here for like six months

okay but like. remember when someone took red beanies to a book signing and got dan and phil to wear them and the blurry pictures taken from a distance were everywhere because beanies. remember when dan apologised every time his hair was even the slightest bit curly. remember when he’d insist he looked absolutely terrible when a fan told him otherwise. and now dan just casually did a liveshow in a pastel beanie with his hobbit hair. like it’s not the biggest deal but he just looked really soft and comfortable and happy and it makes me feel all warm inside and i’m just really grateful for dan howell

Matt has an ugly, long scar on his calf from where Shiro had slashed him with the sword. Even though it was to save Matt's life, Shiro is always attentive of that leg when he caresses it and kisses the scar like a rentless, quiet apology

The first time he saw the scar on Matt’s leg he probably started crying or at least froze up bc
Yeah he’d done it to save Matt’s life, but it had been deep/bad enough to leave a scar

Every time he tries to apologize for it Matt, more or less, tells him to shut up bc if Shiro hadn’t done that, he would be dead and a scar, no matter who made it, is better than being dead

And every time Shiro tries to say he’s sorry, Matt thanks Shiro for saving him
He thanks Shiro for going through hell in the area so he (Matt) didn’t have to

He often does this while gently kissing Shiro’s scars because most of them he got while fighting in the area, and Matt feels sort of responsible for having Shiro end up in there even though he knows it’s ridiculous bc it’s the Galra’s fault and Matt had no idea Shiro would risk his own life to save his

But tl;dr
They each feel responsible/are responsible for each other’s scars and kiss those scars while apologizing or thanking one another

Ok so I’m still kind of haunted by the fact that Andrew implied that he considers himself a runaway and I’ve been thinking a little about how him, Renee, and Neil all have varying degrees of choosing their names? 

Like, Andrew took Minyard even though he didn’t have to, even though he doesn’t believe in family, even though he’s already spent energy distancing himself from Aaron. 

Neil only kept Abram and discarded the rest [insert emotions for Neil being the variation of his given name that excludes his father’s name]. It was his name when he realized there was more to life than running and, to be frank, when he still didn’t know if there was more life for him to live? He was waiting on his uncle’s call–waiting to see what other moves would be made still–but what mattered was he had government issued papers for Neil Josten: the person he made himself, the person who chose to stay put and hold their ground and  who planted roots in the process. 

And how renee also kept her middle name–made it her first name–but got rid of Shields (& became a shield for her friends years after she stopped being a shield for her parents and testified against them). how she takes her adoptive mother’s name, Walker, after she’s walked away from her previous environments and the “worst” version of herself and spends the rest of her life trying to pay atonement for the sins of her childhood. And like!!! This had no real purpose I’m just Feeling Things

Wow, guys. Honestly, that’s all I can say. Wow that it’s been a year and wow that so many of you think that I’m worth following. It’s been a rough year, but one of the constants that have kept me going is the amazing people I found in this community. Say what you will about the general the 1OO fandom ( it kiiiiinda sucks. a lot. ) the love and support I’ve found in the rp community is beyond comparison. I would not still be writing Monty if it wasn’t for you all and I can’t express how grateful I am for all you’ve given me: in and out of character.

This is a bias list I’ve put together of those of you who’ve brought so much joy into my life. There are a lot of you, but there will also be a lot that I miss. If you don’t see yourself on this list, it doesn’t mean that I don’t love you from the bottom of my heart– because I do. I do so much. I’M SO OVERWHELMED BY HOW MUCH LOVE I HAVE FOR ALL OF YOU !!

rewatched the clip for the umpteenth time and i just realised that one of the reasons why i like it so much is how it’s so simple, while simultaneously being a patchwork of interwoven storylines. the premise of the clip is pretty straightforward: isak and even’s friends help the two them with the moving in together process. 

yet, there are so many backstories which are relevant to this 7 minute long clip. sana and jamilla’s complicated relationship. the noora and william story. isak’s family situation, his coming out and self-acceptance process, and his relationship with Even. sana and isak’s friendship. the living situation in kollektivet, with isak taking noora’s room and her sleeping on the sofa. magnus and vilde getting together at the christmas party. the girl squad’s formation story, and the development of sana and vilde’s friendship. even eva and p-chris is mentioned, which also brings in who the penetrators were (i.e. how chris and william know each other).

of course, new viewers will get the general gist of things – at least the most superficial aspects – upon seeing the clip, even if they don’t know about these events and storylines, but they will most likely misinterpret things, because they don’t have the full picture. there’s something very fascinating about how the skam universe is truly settling in and coming together. all of these storylines, which familiar viewers have witnessed the evolution of, are coming together in this clip. just the fact that all of these people – the notorious girl and boy squads – are all hanging out together in their easter break, something which hardly would have happened only two seasons ago, is a testament to this. 

this is the first clip of this season which has yet to launch its storyline, but we already have this rich and fleshed-out backdrop which has developed and accumulated over the last three seasons. 

of course, it makes sense that in a chronological narrative such as this one, storylines build on each other. that is kind of the point. but even so, this clip seems so much more well-rounded than first clips have been in the past. and it makes it seem so casual, because the (familiar) audience sits on the same knowledge as these characters do, and has seen it develop along with them. it’s all so familiar that it almost seems a bit like real life, in a sense. and that’s pretty amazing. 

anonymous asked:

About the ML requests?? Could you please draw adrien/nino friendship stuff or some marinette/plagg interaction? Thank you

Hey there!! I went with the marinette/plagg interaction! 

While Adrien is frantically searching for plagg in every cheese store in paris, (do they have those there? we do in the netherlands but idk about france) Marinette spends some quality time with plagg. (probably making him fancy outfits)

matcha-mint  asked:

For that OC questions ask meme: 2, 10, and 19!

UM. Yeah. How you doin. This ask has been in my inbox for literal months. I have no excuse. I ended up with not enough time to draw back then and after that it felt too awkwardly long ago to still answer. But today I doodled my OCs again and now I’d feel bad if I still didn’t answer. So. Watch me make this super awkward and ramble about my babies when literally nobody even cares anymore. I’m sorry >.<

2. Do you have a personal favourite among your OCs?

This should be a difficult choice, but it really isn’t. My indisputable favorite child is this asshole over here:

Gilfaeth, or Gil for short. He is curious and passionate and painfully smart and fascinated by everything.

He just LOVES things so much. Music makes him cry. Dancing makes him so happy. Just holding a book in his hands gives him all the feels. He’s a theater nerd. He watches the campiest, cheesiest romance plays and melts on the inside.

Gil grows up poor as dirt, at the ass end of nowhere, in the middle of a desert. He has to eat bugs and sand to survive. Every day one of his neighbours starves to death. He doesn’t know what schools are, but he’s smart as shit and  learns how to read and write anyways.

The first time he goes to an actual city he has no idea what’s going on, but there’s a library and HOLY SHIT THERE’S SO MANY BOOKS I CAN’T BELIEVE PEOPLE CAN JUST TAKE ALL THESE FOR THEMSELVES!!!1!- he yells, running like hell from the city guard because they seem to think he stole something. Weird.

He falls in love way too easily, and always with the wrong men.

He’s starving for affection and intimacy, but he doesn’t make it easy for people to stick around. Partly because he already assumes they won’t.

Most of his very few friends have, at some point, considered murdering him. Five already started making plans and two have actually tried. He laughed at the first one. He gouged the second one’s eyes out.

As smart as he is in most areas, mathematics and engineering are his greatest strengths. A lot of his thought processes work with numbers, probabilities, percentages. But he also loves building things with his own two hands, figuring out how something works. He has big ideas and he never stops at just thinking about them, there’s always a part of him itching to actually try it out. Which isn’t always a good thing.

Also, he’s suffering from a degenerative brain disease. It’s the same one that reduced his kind, loving father to a drooling mess who didn’t recognize his own children anymore. The very second Gil notices himself showing symptoms, he decides to live gloriously and die young and not regret a single moment of it.

And he ends up living gloriously, dying young and only regretting a few moments of it.

All in all, he’s pretty satisfied with that outcome.

10. Introduce an OC with a complicated design

I gotta admit, my OCs don’t have very complicated designs. They’re mostly just relatively normal people, living their lives. Wearing practical clothes^^

I find Gil hard to draw because of his hair and his one billion piercings (cause you can bet your ass he’s gonna cover himself in shiny things now that he can afford it.) I’d have to draw him with WAY more than I always do, but I can’t figure out how to do it without cluttering his face beyond recognition.

Emri’s plague doctor getup is kind of elaborate:

And Tameus likes to accessorize with feathers, which can be a pain to draw:

(Yes I’m recycling my OC drawings from before. Uhhh I mean I guess nobody would’ve noticed that since it was 2 months ago… HAHA ignore me :3)

19. Introduce an OC that means a lot to you (and explain why)

Both Gil and Emri are extremely important.

As I said, Gil is my favorite, character-wise. I just, he’s my creation and I’m really proud of him. He’s the most passionate out of all my OCs, one of the most positive, but in a way also the most flawed. And he’s just - he’s fun. Fun to write, fun to read (as I’ve been told ^-^), fun to think up scenarios for. I can sit down after a bad day and think/write about Gil and it’s gonna make me feel better.

And Emri has been with me the longest. I started writing about that fucker in first grade. Characters like Gil, at this point, aren’t gonna be rewritten anymore, but Emri has been changed so much and they’re gonna keep changing as I go along and improve my writing and character-building. I know I’ll probably never be 100% satisfied with them the way I am with Gil, but there’s something uplifting about knowing there’s always potential as well.

And also, I’ve made my way through so many stressful situations in the past by thinking What would Emri do? that I can’t help but feel I owe them a lot.

Even if they’re actually a catastrophe who makes terrible decisions all the time and I really can’t recommend ever doing what Emri would do in any situation EVER

But they’re kind. And I’m not half as kind as I would like to be, so I need an incentive to at least ACT kind sometimes.

Few things:

  • I’ve somehow managed to reach just over 700 followers so I’ve got to figure out what to do for a follower gift. Maybe a recolour or something?
  • I haven’t had a chance to go into S4S yet though because life’s been busy, so it’ll probably be sometime next week
  • I’m gonna do a sim dump because it’s my birthday today (March 31), but again, probably next week. Busy life and things.

Can confirm. Am 23.

trans guy danny who sings about getting laid and talks about how much he loves boobs and sex and women and stuff because it’s always been the way he dealt with his dysphoria and he feels like doing that proves he’s a ‘real’ man. and then he starts to fall for arin and it breaks him because he remembers being told that if he’s into dudes then he may as well “"just stay a girl”“ and have a ’normal' relationship. so danny just flat out refuses to think of arin as more than a friend and he gets uncomfortable whenever arin brings up gay stuff bc dan feels like it’s challenging his masculinity and he can’t deal with it. especially on the show where it’s out there in the open and everyone can judge them for it, and really all danny can do to cope is to live in denial about his feelings.

A temporarily blind Astrid Drabble?

A/N: Holy heck. I am, so terribly sorry that this took me so long to put out!!! I found it and decided to rewrite it aaaand,,, Well, this was the result! I’m so sorry that it took me forever to post this, @aracanabraeks​!! :’)

(I think this one might be a little heavier than what I usually write? I’m not entirely sure, but I feel as if it’s necessary to note that it’s not super light and fluffy, or anything!)

 “Most of the hindrances that you and your friends cause me are generally… unseen. And as the saying goes–an eye for an eye, no?” He’d said. “You needn’t worry, however. I’ve decided to be merciful by letting you keep them, at the very least. How useful they’ll be to you is simply… undetermined.”

There was no ultimatum, no ulterior motive–Viggo wanted revenge for the Riders’ last stunt: the destruction of his marble stronghold. The entire purpose of kidnapping Astrid was for the sake of making a point. For the sake of getting even.

He made a formidable adversary, and part of that was due to the fact that he wasn’t afraid to employ tactics heavier on the… unscrupulous side… in order to get what he wanted.

The fact that he so casually brought the Scourge of Odin back down upon the Barbaric Archipelago was proof enough, but yet another one of methods he utilized revolved around the fact that prolonged and close-range exposure to an Armorwing’s flame resulted in (supposedly temporary) blindness–to both dragon and viking.

Such exposure was appropriately classified as torture.

…And in both cases of blatant inhumanity, Astrid was a victim without a choice.

anonymous asked:

8, 15, 24, 28, and 51 :)

8. Do you have any writing buddies or critique partners?

I’ve had a few CPs through the years, but for the most part they didn’t really work out. so I have one CP right now but she actually hasn’t read any of my recent stuff. (the book she’s reading is from like two years ago?)

I sometimes scream to @bluelikesmoke about how much I hate my books. Eventually I’ll throw one of my drafts at her. @waricka read a terrible draft of WOE last summer. Um….my mom reads my stuff, which sounds lame but she’s SO GOOD at fixing my horrible grammar and all the little technical stuff. but no I definitely need to hunt for some more CPs I’m terrible. 

(I’ve had some real life friends ask to read stuff, but none of them are writers and they don’t really even enjoy reading they’re just curious about what I type all day.)

15. How do you deal with self-doubt when writing? 

*hysterical laughter*

I don’t? The self doubt has been eating away at me for a good couple of months now, because my book is a mess and health stuff kept me from writing for a bit there. But….I cry, a lot. Usually it helps some. 

Honestly, I just try to remind myself that everyone doubts their writing. It’s normal. Sometimes I have to take a break from what I’m working on, but most of the time I find it’s better if I push through until I get to a scene I really love, something that makes me fall in love with the book. I’ve also gotten into the habit of writing out the exact spark that made me fall in love with the idea in the first place, and then I keep it somewhere in my mess of notes to look back on whenever I feel like everything is shit.

(sometimes I also dig up the first actual book I ever wrote and cringe a lot at the awful writing and then, no matter how bad the writing in my current draft is I always feel a little bit better)

24. Do you remember the moment you decided to become a writer/author?

It’s really cliche, but I don’t remember ever not wanting to be a writer? It’s pretty much been my dream since I was super small. I was terrible at reading when I was a kid, but I still loved books so much and I’ve always known I wanted to spend my life telling stories in one way or another. So I don’t remember an exact moment, but when I was 16 I had completed all my credits for high school and realized that like…..my whole life was ahead of me! And I needed to figure out when the heck I really wanted to do! and at some point I was like “fuck it I’m going to start and finish writing a book” and I did and I kept writing and now we’re here.

I did not think there would be so much suffering involved, but I still love it.

28. How do you stay focused on your own work and how do you deal with comparison? 

I don’t know???? Writing isn’t a race or a contest it’s just….everyone doing their own awesome thing and you have to know that everyone is going at a different pace and everyone has been where you are and struggled with the same things you’re struggling with. I remind myself that I’m the only one who can write the way I can, who can tell the stories I’m telling. That I’m writing the weird, dark books I always longed for when I was younger, the books someone else is probably (maybe, hopefully) longing for now. That’s all SUPER cliche, I know, but it does help sometimes.

It’s really hard not to compare yourself to other people, but I kind of just….tell myself it’s not an option? It doesn’t make sense and it’s a waste of my time. Getting stuck in that mindset stops me from writing, and writing is what I love to do. It doesn’t always work, and I spend a lot of time feeling vaguely panicky because when I was young and didn’t know anything I set IMPOSSIBLE goals for myself, goals I have not reached yet (goals I’m glad I have not reached yet, but it still sucks to feel like I failed). The point is, writing is never about trying to be better than someone else, it’s about constantly improving your own craft.  

51. Are you a secretive writer or do you talk with your friends about your books?

I mean, I don’t think I’m super secretive because I post shit on here but…..I don’t really talk about my books that much because I’m a really introverted person and terrible at sharing. It’s something I need to work on…..

ok but 4 real what does a person even say when they meet jemma redgrave

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child Fic: When The Time Is Right

9.1k words, G rated

Albus is going to ask Scorpius to marry him on New Year’s Eve. That’s the plan at least, but first he needs to find a ring, and pick the right words to propose with. It’s all a lot easier said than done. 

This is a follow up to this little ficlet I wrote for @ohscorbus as a Christmas present. I didn’t really plan to write the actual proposal, but it seemed like a cute idea for a new year’s fic, so 9000 words later here we are! 

Thanks to @abradystrix for betaing this monster, and coming up with some brilliant critique.
