So instead of doing anything else, I got obsessed with the Howls Moving Castle AU.  

  • Ron: Admit it! You like my girlfriend.
  • Draco: Oh, come on. I mean, am I attracted to Granger? Sure. Do my days feel better when I'm around her? Yeah. Does she get me in ways no woman ever has? Indubitably. Do I fantasize about her? Yes, but only in two positions. Look, am I the kind of guy who would try to steal someone else's girlfriend? Sure, of course, but do I like her? The answer's no.
  • Arthur: Admit it! You like my boyfriend.
  • Gwaine: Oh, come on. I mean, am I attracted to Merlin? Sure. Do my days feel better when I'm around him? Yeah. Does he get me in ways no man ever has? Indubitably. Do I fantasize about him? Yes, but only in two positions. Look, am I the kind of guy who would try to steal someone else's boyfriend? Sure, of course, but do I like him? The answer's no.
  • Jimin: Stop with the flirting! Admit it, you like my boyfriend!
  • Jungkook: Oh, come on. I mean, am I atracted to Taehyung? Sure. Do my days feel better when i'm around him? Yeah. Does he get me in ways no person ever has? Indubitably. Do I fantasize about him? Yes, but only in two positions. Look, am I the kind of guy who would try to steal someone else's boyfriend? Of course. But do I like him? The answer's no! You have nothing to worry about.

Episode I: Qui-Gon Jinn:  << part I >> << part II >> << part III >> << part IV >> << part V >>

A Writer’s PSA

Firstly: I just saw an interesting post made by @caplanbuckybarnes (who I can’t tag, but that’s okay), that inspired both anger and relief in me at once. I was compelled to type out this PSA.

Secondly: I am tagging everyone who has asked to be tagged in The Irrelevance of Napoli SO YOU CAN SEE HOW GODDAMN AWESOME THEY ARE BEFORE I START THIS. 

@thecrownedrose @persephone-is-here-omg @find-me-here2 @captainamerotica @redgillan @angryschnauzer @ursulaismymiddlename @rebelslicious @kittykitty-mewmeww @erisjade @siren-kitten-his @buckyappreciationsociety @kozmicrock @aingealcethlenn @rachelle-on-the-run @thewinterswimmer @vaisabu @inside-lizzys-head @angryschnauzer @melconnor2007 

Thirdly: I am doing this more for the sake of my upcoming fic, Cherchez la Femme, which I have been working on for MONTHS–probably since Septemberish–than I am for Napoli. Also doing this for the sake of other authors who may feel this way, but don’t want to say anything for fear of making people mad. I personally am tired of dealing with my own anxiety about this subject, so I’m getting this off my chest. 

Okay.

 I am exceedingly frustrated by the majority of attitudes (or non attitudes) I see towards anything that is not a one-shot on here. ESPECIALLY if it’s smut.

I like smut. I love smut. I’ve read some really good smut on here. But… that’s not all I’ve read on here. When I first got on Tumblr, I found some really unique and interesting fics, and I got very invested in them. But lately, the majority of what I’ve been seeing on this site is the same damn thing, over and over and over again. Smut one shots, no plot, no character development, no nothing. Those fics I was invested in were discontinued (temporarily, I hope) in favor of smut one shots, which, like I said, I don’t mind, but ya know… I also do.

Authors are capable of writing more than smut one shots. 

Authors are capable of writing more than smut one shots. And many of them do write more than smut one shots. But I have seen two (2) of the multi-part fics I follow being seriously reblogged. That’s out of A LOT that I happen to read and like. One of my favorites got put on hiatus because there were no reads on the most recent chapter at the time.

Tumblr, seriously, what is going on? Like, I recognize that we all want to imagine ourselves having sex with some version of Sebastian Stan (ME TOO, I AM NOT EXCLUDING MYSELF FROM THAT GROUP) but some of these people have worked ages, ages on these fics. With well-developed characters and plot and settings and serious issues that are worked through. THESE PEOPLE I READ SHOULD WRITE ORIGINAL CONTENT AND GET PUBLISHED. In my world, they would. Because they are that good.

And yet, they get almost no recognition. And it frustrates me, and scares me, and makes me really, really sad. Some might say, “Tumblr is more (something else) than fanfic for me”–which is fine. Please engage in whatever joy may have brought you to Tumblr. But also remember that for others, it IS about fanfic, and they enjoy doing that just as much as you enjoy doing whatever you do. So hit the like button every once in a while. Read more fics of your favorite characters. Some might say, “I have –something that gives me a shorter attention span–, I can’t remember what happened before this chapter/can’t concentrate enough to get through a whole fic in the time I have”–in which case, you are fine, don’t worry about it, not a big deal. Some of you may say, “Works in progress are annoying, I hate waiting for new parts to come out”–and trust me, I’m right there with you. I’m waiting on a few new parts for fics myself (I’m also waiting for Diana Gabaldon’s next Outlander book, goddammit), but that doesn’t stop me from reading and commenting on the parts that are there! Tell the author that you have something to look forward to until the next part comes out! Also, TELL THE AUTHOR IF YOU ARE WAITING FOR THEM TO COMPLETE IT, or ask to be tagged in the final masterlist! We won’t mind if you do it that way! Some of you may just hate longer fics and there’s nothing anybody can do to change that. In which case, whatever floats your boat.

I’m not getting on anyone in the above paragraph to suddenly change your preferences and start reading fics with more than two parts. What I am saying, though, is if you consume, but don’t comment AND reblog (or at least tag and reblog), or if you don’t consume at all and blatantly ignore what authors are putting out there… come on, guys. We put our heart and souls into this stuff. Some of the stuff we write is taken from real life. Some people don’t have anything but their writing to help them get through what may be a really bad stage. Likes, comments, reblogs–writers need these. We don’t all have to be JK Rowling here, but we do hope to see that someone smiles or laughs, or cries, or feels in some way with our fics. 

One of my friends on here was very sad a couple of days ago because she was getting very few notes on even her one-shots, or reblogs with no comments. She has 700+ followers and a taglist that’s a mile long. It made me sad for her, and I can’t even hug her because she lives far away from me. Readers, you don’t have to comment or reblog every chapter of a fic that’s been written, it’s really okay if you don’t, but let the reader know that you like it and acknowledge the work that’s been done. 

I’m still relatively tiny on here, and I definitely need to follow more blogs, so I will now go looking. But, indulge me for a second: If, when I publish Cherchez, I deem it as not getting enough notes, I will make a goddamn video of myself deleting the thing off my computer and burning the damn notebooks. I started by writing this stuff for me. Napoli ended up being about someone I know who recently died. Cherchez was what I wrote when I was coming out of a breakdown. So yes, I write for myself. But as soon as I put it up here, it becomes yours. You consume it, you feel because of it. So really, guys, read all the smut you want. I know I’m going to. But read more than smut, too.

Sincerely,

Someone who is a teeny bit oversmutted

  • What she says: i'm fine
  • What she means:
  • AND ANOTHER THING the reboots got wrong is perpetuating the idea that Jim Kirk is arrogant and cocky when he actually has a lot of insecurities. He's always trying to do better, to be better, not because he's living up to someone else's standards but because that's who he is at his core. If he can't save someone or if something goes wrong, he is the first to blame himself and to make damn sure it doesn't happen again. He isn't arrogant. He's good at his job and, more than that, he's a good person. JJ Abrams is basically that Klingon who called my captain a "swaggering, overbearing, tin-plated dictator with delusions of godhood" and I am chekov downing vodka and trying not to punch him in the face

One day Danny meets a newly-formed ghost. Said ghost knows nothing about ghosthood or being dead and is understandably quite upset. Danny takes the time to comfort the ghost and help her get used to her new existence. He takes her flying around town, shows her harmless ways to have fun, that sort of thing. She soon starts perking up a little, but she’s still really sad about leaving her loved ones behind. Just the thought of them grieving for her makes her want to cry.

“Will they be okay?” she asks.

“Sure,” Danny tells her. “They’ll miss you a lot, but for all of history people have managed to go on with their lives after losing someone. It’ll be hard, but they’ll be okay.”

The ghost looks at him with her innocent, unknowing eyes. “Is your family doing okay with you dead?”

“Well,” Danny says, “my parents still miss me… BUT THEIR AIM IS GETTIN’ BETTER!”

anonymous asked:

I'm not sure if you were seriously looking for answers about why we like your art, but for me, your art feels like home. It's the same comfy feeling I get when I listen to WTNV or a song that I haven't heard in forever. I don't know why, because comparatively I've known about your art for a way shorter time, but it does. You're my absolute favorite artist, and all of your art inspires me to do better, so that someday I can do the same for someone else.
