is that an acceptable tag idk

Listen: I accepted after the pilot that this show was going to be cancelled. The ratings were low, the reviews were bad, ABC did no promotion and I had to personally convince people to watch it because they had no idea what the fuck it was.

So this week was a bit “meh” for me.

But then Torrance over here starts tweeting, and I lose it. Because this cast is so lovely and they deserved way better than this. I know that when Lashana and Medalion, especially, tweet saying goodbye to this show I’m not gonna survive. So for me, I’m sad for this cast. They did such an amazing job with what they were given, were the sweetest and most communicative with their fans, and… now it’s over for them.

So at this point, I’m just grateful we will definitely see all of the episodes. I’m grateful we’ll (likely) get a satisfying conclusion and wrap-up. I’m just grateful that this story (book and tv show) entered my life at all, because these characters and ships just make me so happy and give me so much inspiration and introduced me to new friends.

And now I just hope we get a DVD release so I can just always rewatch and reread the story to my heart’s content.

oh hey a thing I never posted, made this back in like…winter? maybe fall of 2016? accept for the last two pages that I just did. This was a project called MyTale which was going to be a tag anyone could do. it was a just for fun, how would it have gone if YOU had gotten into he underground instead of frisk. the art doesn’t have to be good, just as long as you get the story out there.

only rule is you’d select a font for the title that would be your font. example, this font is called Black, idk why but it kinda called to me so it’s my font if I had a font, so I put it as the title font and decorated it.

don’t know if I’ll continue this but it’s a fun idea to see how everyone else would have gone though the underground.

oh jeez my anxiety is going up posting this

make me choose - anon asked: selena gomez or hailee steinfeld
      “[about most girls] you know it’s funny because a lot of the time…this song specifically sort of stemmed from a conversation where a compliment was given from a guy and that compliment was, “you’re not like most girls.” and as many times as i’ve accepted that as a compliment i thought about it and i thought that, you know that’s oddly enough not the greatest thing to say to a woman. when so many women are amazing, and beautiful, and smart, and have so much to offer. 
                       and that’s my comeback, that’s like me saying little do you know, that’s not very nice and i wanna be like most girls.” 

psa to skinny people:

if a fat person refers to themself as fat do NOT jump in and say things like “nooo you’re not fat you’re beautiful!!”
being fat and being beautiful are not mutually exclusive. many of us call ourselves fat casually because that’s what we are, not to get ‘compliments’. telling us we can’t be fat and beautiful at the same time only makes it harder for some people to accept and love their bodies.

dear budding freelance writers

first off: i’m not a lawyer. this is all accurate to my knowledge but i’m not formally educated or trained in most of this, i just work around it and pick some stuff up

look i’m currently suffocating under crushing debt so i was like ‘hey i’ll see if there are any magazines taking submissions’ cause i may or may not get chosen but at least its something i’d be doing anyway and timelines and genre restrictions never hurt a girl

i ended up on this page (upwork) looking for “ghostwriters” and it’s laughable to downright insulting.

such as: “Hello, I produce [REDACTED]. So if you are looking for a recurring job as a freelance writer you came to the right place! Here is what I need: Someone who can be a good researcher. Don’t plagiarize. All books are run through plagscan and copyscape. They need to be 100 percent original. Timeliness - The faster you produce these (with quality) the more jobs you will get. This job will be recurring if you do a good job. I will pay a maximum of $10 per 1000 words. Lastly, by accepting this job, I will own all the rights to the book. This includes characters, places etc. I own all the rights. Thank you!”

there were SO MANY OF THESE. look. i work in intellectual property for my day job. so here’s the thing: if you, a creative, does a “work for hire” agreement, like the one above, that means anything you produce under this agreement does not belong to you. you have effectively “sold” your intellectual property aka the story and all is defining characteristics - people, places, plot.

WORK FOR HIRE AGREEMENTS ARE NOT BAD! i see a lot of pushback against them on tumblr which is baffling to me because in the real world they’re how many creatives make money - by selling their creativity. with tv shows, for example, their characters and plots and what not do not belong to the creator of the show. they belong to the network of the show because they paid for them. writers of episodes don’t own the creative content of those episodes - the network does. because the writers are “work for hire” aka they’re getting paid specifically for their creative content.

work for hire agreements are usually the most advantageous when the payer is hiring the creator for the execution of a project rather than the creation of it. for example: hiring a writer to create a story out of a detailed outline, or an artist to draw something under strict specifications. the more creativity aka intellectual property the creator must generate and ultimately sell the rights too, the higher the pay should be for the work. (should. i’ve seen instances where pay is less but something else is gained - like different rights or credits - and that’s equally as acceptable as long as it’s what the creator wants. the creator should gain something equal to the value of what they are selling. obviously)

so the idea that $10 per 1000 words of pure original content is in any way shape or form acceptable is absolutely ridiculous. most literary magazines, which pay way more, get some form of publication rights but you the author retain all ownership rights. they’re not paying you for your intellectual property, only their right to display it without you suing them for infringing on your rights as a creator and owner of original content.

know your worth. know your value. i don’t know how many of these ridiculous ads actually get takers, but please do not answer any of them.

your ideas and writing and talent are worth more than pennies

soul mate au where the most important thing your soul mate will ever say to you is written on your wrist

Yeah sure we can go for the obvious like “I love you” or “I will miss you” but what about real weird stuff like “Please accept the change, sir” or “Please play on, your music is lovely”. Then there is the straight up nasty stuff like “I promise I won’t kill you”

Feel free to add on

April 3rd - Black Magic (Supernatural Stiles)

[and also secretly April 2nd-I Kissed a Girl (Stiles/female), snuck into the background to make up for missing that day lol]


~*~*~*~*~*~


Allison didn’t look too great when she answered her front door. Well, really, she looked the same as she always did—obnoxiously pretty and generally well-put-together—but she didn’t have the same warm smile on her face that she usually did when she greeted Stiles. Instead she looked kind of grim, a frown on her lips and a little crease of worry between her eyebrows.

“Hey, Stiles,” she said. “Thanks for coming.”

“Anytime. What’s up? Your text sounded kind of urgent.”

She stepped back to let him through the door and closed it behind him, ushering him into the apartment.

“I might have a tiny situation,” she admitted. “Or potentially not-so-tiny, I don’t know yet.”

“Okay,” Stiles said slowly, following her down the short hallway to a home office type room. He leaned into the doorway, hands in his pockets and watched curiously as she came to a hover in the middle of the room. “And you call me for this situation? Just me? Seems more like a Scott thing. He’s usually the one everyone goes to for situations.”

“He’s busy with alpha things,” Allison said distractedly. Her hands flitted over the back of her dad’s desk chair for a moment, then skipped over to the nearest shelf to run along the spines of the books there. Her eyes were just as restless, darting around the room on a loop without ever settling on anything. “And anyway, I don’t think his help is the kind I need. This is more up your alley.”

“Feel free to tell me what ‘this’ is anytime,” Stiles said mildly.

He couldn’t think what kind of thing would be up his alley but not Scott’s, unless it was specifically a magical problem. But even then, most people would go to Deaton before him, which was understandable. As strong as his spark was and as much progress as he’d made so far, he still wasn’t up to Emissary level yet. He was still an apprentice, at least technically speaking. And besides, he felt like Allison would’ve said magic right off the bat if that had been the case.

No reason for her to be this cagey if it was magic. It was kind of making him jumpy. He wasn’t nervous yet, per se. He wasn’t getting any overwhelming sense of impending doom like he did with a lot of the situations the pack had found itself in over the years, but the way Allison was biting her lip and twisting her fingers around each other wasn’t particularly reassuring either.

Abruptly, Allison turned to face him fully and let out a quick breath.

“Dad went on a hunting trip,” she said bluntly. “And he hasn’t come back yet.”

idk about yall

but no matter what happens from kuro ch. 129 and onward, i’ll always tag and call OC as “Ciel Phantomhive” and his twin as really just the “twin”, and my ship still as “cielizzy” because i don’t think anything really changed except for an additional character who could be important to the plot.


to me ciel will always be ciel, because that’s the kid we knew from chapters 1-128. he will always be the same kid we love, no matter what his name is. 


not because i refuse to accept the fact that he indeed has a twin, but because i don’t understand how some people could say that this plot twist makes him “not the same anymore”, when clearly he still is. nothing changed, folks. nothing. he’s still him, with the same personality and traits, the same likes and dislikes.


and for that he’ll forever stay as ciel phantomhive in my heart.
