inspite-of

while i understand the desire for headcanons/aus of “brambleclaw is a golden tabby like his mom” or “brambleclaw should have been named brambleflower after his mom”, i feel having brambleclaw look like tigerstar and be named after him is integral for brambleclaw’s arc. so much of brambleclaw’s character is about how he defies his father’s legacy, how his own ambition and rise to power are not marked with tyranny and violence but with genuine care for other cats and loyalty to the code. bramblestar reclaims everything that tigerstar marred by making his own story without and inspite of tigerstar’s reputation, and i think removing his similarities to tigerstar takes away from that

CHALGA

This is a very specific genre and it’s very Bulgarian. Most songs are very provoking, dirty and even obscene. I know that a lot of fellow-Bulgarians will hate me for including them but I have found that foreigners tend to be very intriguied by this kind of music so I will include some more decent songs. You will without a doubt hear at least some of these if you go to any disco in BG!

Azis | Хабиби (I love you? I think?) | Онова момче (That boy)
Galena & Ts. Yaneva | Пей, сърце (Sing, heart (sounds kinda ridiculous in EN)
Sofi Marinova | Love unlimited | Бурята в сърцето ми (The storm in my heart)
Emilia | California 
Desi Slava | На всички като тебе (to everyone like you) | И това ще преживея (I will go through this) 
Preslava | Лъжа е | Няма да ти пиша (I won’t text you) | Водка с утеха (A vodka with comfort) 
Boris Dali | Палатка (A tent) 
Galin | Парата ако хвана (If I get rich (lit: If I catch the money) | На Египет фараона (The  pharaoh of Egypt) 


OLD MUSIC/ CLASSICS 


Паша Христова | Повей, ветре (Blow, wind) | Една българска роза (One Bulgarian rose) 
Лили Иванова | За тебе бях (For you I was) | Детелини (Clovers) | Ветрове (Winds) | Camino 


OTHERS:


Traditional BG music mixed with modern beats: Stanga
Traditional music + rock music: Balkandji 

Note: I will constantly be updating this list. If you have any suggestions for me to add, don’t hesitate to message me. And be sure to let me know what you think! :)

Haikyuu - Criminal AU


This au is thought up by two artists, @nekokat42 and me, we’re not trying to write so the AU is just a bunch of events without an actual plot (for now- we’re open to collaborate w/ writers tho ^^)

The au is very violent and very sad. If you don’t like seeing your favs getting hurt, it’s probably not for you!


the HQ teams are criminal families. The captains are heads of these families.

The characters are aged up to mid thirties, the youngest is Akane at 18.

There are big time gaps between these events:

Sometimes I think about Hollstein and how they didn’t want to fall in love but they did.

I love that when the story started, Laura had a crush on Danny because Danny was everything she should look for in a match. But, the more she learnt about Danny and the closer they got, the more Laura’s feelings for Danny changed and she realised Danny wasn’t right for her romantically. It wasn’t really the relationship she wanted.

Meanwhile, she met Carmilla and instantly disliked her. Carmilla was what she didn’t want. But, as she learnt more about her suddenly her attraction grew and she began to really fall for her. As she says in s2, she was falling for her even when she was plotting ways to kidnap her. She was falling for Carmilla even when she still wanted to be falling for Danny. Carmilla ended up being the only person Laura wanted to be with. She became the thing that made Laura see that it’s important to let gray into your world. Carmilla became the one thing Laura couldn’t bear to lose.

On the flip side you have Carmilla who after what happened with Elle, did not want to fall for the girl trying to take on her mother. The girl who had all the power to make her life so much harder than it had been in decades. But, even as Laura showed stubbornness in her pursual of the truth that could ruin Carmilla, Carmilla fell for Laura. And in falling for Laura, Carmilla found a reason to fight her mother and she found something worth saving.

I just think it’s so true to life, that often the thing you think you least want can end up being exactly what you’ll end up needing. And it’s so beautiful to see these two fall for each other inspite of everything in them saying they shouldn’t. And to see that love make them do remarkable things. I just feel a lot about Hollstein late at night
