Safe & Sound - Chapter 6
An Archive of Our Own, a project of the Organization for Transformative Works
By Organization for Transformative Works

Summary: Hunger Games AU. Against the advice of everyone in District 12, 18-year-old Marcus Kane applies to undergo Peacekeeper training in the Capitol rather than relegating himself to a life in the coal mines. His motives are selfless and selfish, his dangerous decision bringing him and Abby Walters closer and tearing them apart over the course of thirty years.

SO THIS IS ACTUALLY CHAPTERS 6 AND 7, which includes the prologue to Part Two - Kabby at their canon ages - because I have no self-control and I’m super excited to see what you guys think of the opening. So. There’s that. I really hope you like it, and I can’t wait to post more of Part Two. 

Featuring: the last few days of Marcus’ Peacekeeper training, Miller making a lucky (or not so lucky, depending on how you look at it) guess, and a phone call Marcus Kane never expected, or wanted, to receive. Hint: it might involve Dr. Abigail Griffin of District 12…

Heya, i'm naturally a guy that doesn't like venting or anything, just feels weird to me. But, I guess I just wanted to see if I could get some positivity. I've been feelin all sorts of alone and isolated, and I guess it's been gettin to me more than I thought. Thanks, big bro.

If by naturally you mean Youre a cisgender guy then I would suggest a different advice blog. This is for transmen. Or nonbinary babes. Basically male identifing trans* people.

Haha so one of the things I worried about with the fic I’m writing in particular is that I didn’t make Guzma, I dunno, enough of an asshole? Cuz like, there’s definitely quite a few fics where people are like, oh yeah, he’s a dick. He’s just straight up a dick.

Which is fine honestly. I can see how he’d be interpreted that way. But I guess for me personally, (and I think you see this in what I wrote) my headcanon is that a lot of his asshole-ish-ness was somewhat of a bluff and he’s just kind of a lovable loser below the surface. Ya know, bad guy with a heart of gold stereotype.

And I guess I think that for a few reasons. The first being how much Plumeria and the grunts care about him and how they want to get him back from ultra space so badly. I think if he were a complete ass to them they wouldn’t be as concerned.

Then there’s also the fact that ya boi says some of the dorkiest shit in the game. Stuff like “Now’s the time for your vaunted team to let loose” and “You little misfits keep getting up in my grill, like a cloud of smoke that I can’t brush away” and fucking “Looks like it’s time to catch this wicked ultra beast to beat down these annoying upstarts!”

Not to mention the whole “ya boi” thing and “destruction in human form.” Like, come on. He’s a huge fucking dork! Using words like vaunted and upstarts. That’s hilarious to me, I dunno.

I can’t speak for other iterations of him, as I just know the games, but my personal interpretation is that he likes for people to assume he’s tough, dark, and brooding, buuuut get to know him well enough, and mostly he’d just want to annoy the shit out of you and make you laugh. Which makes me want to pat him on the head and be like, “you’re ridiculous.”

@bechnokid art of Guzma is my favorite because the way she portrays him is basically exactly the same way I imagine him. And holy hell thanks so much for doing what you do because I love your style so much and it’s been such an inspiration to me.

End random Guzma ramble :V

If you’re overweight and you’re eating healthy food, people will not take you seriously (because they expect that eating healthy food means you should have the perfect “fitness” body already, and if you don’t have it yet, clearly you haven’t succeeded or some shit).

If you’re skinny and eating healthy, people will be “concerned” for you because you need to gain weight.

If you’re overweight and you have a treat (that you counted in your macros and calories) or even a cheat meal that you’re aware of, they’ll ask if you’re sure you should be eating that… because won’t one meal hinder your weight loss? (and if you previously felt good about eating it because you know life is about balance, you begin to feel skeptical).

If you’re skinny and you work out, they will tell you that you don’t need to… because exercise is only for weight loss, apparently, and not strength.

If you’re overweight and you work out, people will not take you seriously (see first point) and they will always try to correct you because they will assume you don’t know what you’re doing.

tldr; people don’t know your goals, they don’t know your progress and they don’t know your body. You will be judged whether you choose to go for that salad or if treat yourself and go with the fries. You will be judged whether you’ve just started your weight loss journey or are ¾ of the way there. You will be judged whether you want to lose weight or if you’re happy with the way you are. trust your body and your goals, and do it for yourself x

♡ HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY! ♡ (ㆁᴗㆁ✿)

Pro basketball star Derek Hale of the Hollywood Knights has been hinting for months about finding someone special, and the cat is finally out of the bag. In our exclusive interview Derek spoke only the highest of praise for Stiles Stilinski, and somehow turned all topics back to him. The baseball lover seems rather star-struck for the young man. Stilinski is an up and coming photographer/ videographer who seems to be at the beginning of a successful career. The two were spotted together on a yacht in LA earlier this week - the couples first public appearance. If the pictures are anything to go by, these two look beyond happy together.

High King Peter, the Magnificent

This scene breaks my heart every time I watch Prince Caspian. Peter is so desperate to get back to Narnia, so desperate to be of use again to his kingdom. And he finally makes it back, just to have to try and prove that he is, in fact, a worthy king. But it doesn’t go according to plan - at all. His soldiers followed him into this battle, every single one of them trusted him with their lives and now he is forced to watch as they die, forced to leave them behind and save his own life. And he is horrified. He may blame Caspian as well later on, mostly in anger, but in this moment he blames only himself.

And remember, this boy is about 18 years old (at most). He is just a boy.

I have a hard time accepting that the galra women aren’t part of the military at all because a) they’re GALRA and b) Allura went undercover as a galra soldier and no one batted an eyelash so WHERE THEY AT

I made a new blue tunic and wanted to see how versatile it could be as a piece of soft kit. I tried it on with a number of different kit combinations, but I liked this one the most. Although it felt less like a LARP character and more like a D&D character. I liked the layering so thought I’d make another one of these posts for you guys. Also, no matter what I do the prodiminant colours are always going to be purple and blue. :/

Step 1 - blue tunic. And pants.. I guess..
Step 2 - purple lace up vest (it’s reversible!)
Step 3 - leather belt, flute, leather pouch, drinking horn and coin pouch. Leather wrist cuff.
Step 4 - accessories: decorative belts and jewelry. (I think every larper owns a key necklace at some point.)
Step 5 - black wool lirripipe hood and ukulele.

Tunic, vest, hood, cuff and pouch made by me.

I keep thinking how knowing Even had a crush on Isak the first day he saw him changes the whole dynamic of the story, or at least it does to me.

The first times we see Isak and Even sharing glances (first in the cafeteria, then outside, then at the kosegruppa meeting) I thought Even was this type of guy who looks at you in the coolest way ever just because he feels he is able to get your attention.

When they met in the bathroom and Even did the most ridiculous thing I’ve ever seen anyone do when they are flirting with someone, I thought he was just being a pain in the ass since he noticed Isak always looking at him and he wanted the attention I guessed he thought he deserved.

And then in the bench… Well, that scene kind of threw my theory out of the window, because Even totally lost his coolness: he was almost shy and nervous. But I guess I was too caught up by his looks and appearance I didn’t really pay attention.

But Even confessing Isak he saw him the very first day at school and that he went to the kosegruppa meeting just to meet Isak made me realize all those times weren’t about Even being cool, they were about Even trying to look cool. It was always about a boy doing embarrassing and not-so-slick things to get the other boy’s attention. When I thought Isak was getting caught by Even staring at him, it was actually Even trying to act laid back when he realized his crush was looking at him. When Even approached Isak on the hallway to ask him if he was going to the Halloween party, it wasn’t him being casual, it was him being hopeful. When Even suggested Isak going to the pool, it wasn’t him recreating his favorite movie scene just to be the coolest guy, it was him planning the whole thing to finally act on his feelings for his crush.

And you know why just a simple scene was able to threw away what I thought was real? Because Skam just doesn’t make seasons from one character’s perspective in order for us to get to really know them, Skam does it to show that not everything is what we think it is: we don’t see life at it is, we see it in our own way. And that’s as beautiful as it is scary, isn’t it?

I keep getting sponsored ads on Facebook for OUAT merch, and I’m pretty sure it’s all a scam. I’m sure I’m not the only one, and I know people have also been having their art stolen and put on shirts, so I want to make a post about it to avoid fans getting ripped off.

For example, here’s the one I saw today:

That’s a photoshopped image of Lana. She’s never worn that shirt. This photo is from when she was promoting her “Long Live The Queen” shirt, for charity, and tbh taking that photo and making it look like she’s promoting a shirt these guys are selling for profit is already kind of gross.

Then you go to the page where they’re selling the shirt and see this:

Oh, I guess people are buying it. It must be legit. Except, wait, if I click on the other shirt the same page was advertising

… there’s the exact same numbers. Because that’s not an actual tracker, it’s an image meant to trick you into thinking that these are legit numbers and that other people are buying these shirts.

So - be careful. Don’t take these things at face value. Look into who is selling these things and whether they’re resorting to any shady tricks like this, because if they are, chances are the product’s no good.

And another thing: stolen art makes for crappy products. The art you tend get on the internet is too small to result in a good print, so while it might look great on the product preview, in reality the print will be blurry and discoloured. If you want official merch, buy it from reputable places that carry it. If you want fan-made stuff, buy it from the artists’ store if they have one. Buy it from reputable sites and people you’ve heard of, not a Facebook “fan page” that doesn’t ever credit the artist who designed the shirt. You will get ripped off. There are even places out there who steal people’s art and pretend to sell it, but they’ll just take your money. Any page/site that posts a bunch of different products in a lot of different styles etc, without any artist name attached, is probably a bit shady.

So just keep a look out, and please make sure these things are legit before you give someone your money. And please signal boost if you can, this is something the fandom should know about!
