Summary: In his head he sees the words of that email, so long ago burned into his brain where he’ll never forget them. Eggsy, I saw in you what someone once saw in me. Something that can’t be taught. The makings of a Kingsman.
That can be Harry again. He knows it. He knows it.
Contains spoilers for Kingsman 2, including the trailer and Vaughn’s interview with Empire
I don’t have an adequate icon for this so this one’s gonna have to do.
We’ve gotten an influx of messages recently about being bullied or not being so for liking Sonic and I just wanna.
Listen. Listen. There ain’t a damn thing in the world that’s gonna change the fact that people are assholes sometimes, a lot of the times. And it sucks but that’s how it is.
But! But! You know what? Most people do that because they want a reaction out of you, to make you feel small so they feel big. So the best thing for both yourself and for them to do is just not let them.
Think about it. You love the series, you do! Otherwise you wouldn’t be here, or so passionate about it! So why do you love it? The characters? The gameplay? The music?
Don’t get into a fight about whether Sonic’s good or not. People are more stubborn than you could possibly imagine, they won’t get it.
Nerd out instead.
Someone asks you in That Tone “You like Sonic?” You put on the biggest fuckin smile and just go off. Go fuckin HAM I say. You stand firm in your love for it, and you erupt with all your positive vibes, they won’t be able to respond in a way that makes you tiny. Every time they try, get bigger, get louder, more exited.
They’ll either get frustrated/bored of trying, or just kinda roll their eyes and leave. And tbh, someone nearby could very well come up to you after it with a smile of their own and say “Hey, I like Sonic too.”
HEY KID, HAVE YOU EVER WANTED TO WRITE YOUR ENGLISH ESSAYS COMPLETELY IN CODE? WELL, NOW YOU CAN DO THAT!
Presenting one of the nerdiest things I’ve ever spent three hours on:
Fordese. Exactly as seen in Journal 3, but as a font. You too can confuse your work partner, twin brother, and dream demon arch-nemesis by simply typing on the keyboard as normal, no pen needed!
I must thank @picnokinesis and the fics they wrote in code for putting the random inspiration in my mind to do this, ahahah. XD
The font includes all coded letters from A-Z, both in uppercase and lowercase. (They’re both the same, though- I just figured it wouldn’t hurt to double up.) It has a full set of numbers, and the most common punctuation. Some of the letters are annoyingly close to each other, but it couldn’t easily be helped.
But hey, if anyone actually uses this and makes a post, please feel free to tag me in it so I can see! And if anyone tries this out and there’s any major issues with it, let me know and I can try to fix it! :D
Some doodles I did on the side yesterday night ( @blesstale drew Zunde that there ) including Dreby taking his first steps. I saw this kid screaming “NOOOO!” at some meat in a grocery store before running to his mom, so there we go ✌️
Plagiarized fics - asking for help from the 1D fandom
Hi everyone! I’m poking my head in your door from the Haikyuu fandom to ask you guys for help. I have spoken to quite a few people in the One Direction fandom thus far and I have been overwhelmed by their kindness, support, and how fast everyone I talked to acted to help me and my friend get this sorted out.
It came to my and my best friend ellessey-writes’s attention (confusing names, sorry! I’m Esselle) this morning that many of our fics had been stolen by the Tumblr/AO3 user Fruxoo, who has since deleted her accounts.
Here are two screenshots of Fruxoo’s fics, posted in April. The first is a direct copy of my story Hunger, completed last June 2016. The second is the summary from Ellie’s story Tea and Sympathy, posted January of this year. The entire text of every fic Fruxoo stole has been copied almost exactly word for word from our fics, changing only the names and other relevant character info.
I messaged her privately and asked that she post an explanation on Tumblr, as well as replace the text of her stolen works with links to our respective stories, in order to notify any readers who enjoyed these works. Unfortunately, she didn’t respond. Now that she has taken everything down, that’s no longer possible.
It would mean the world to Ellie and I if people would help spread the word about what happened. Last year, between the two of us, we wrote 626,000 words. We poured all our energy and love (and time!) into these stories, and to have someone copy them word for word, lie to people who were kind enough to comment or send asks as if they had thought up the ideas on their own, and interact with other people in the 1D fandom based off of love for OUR writing, is devastating to us both. This was going on for at least 2.5 months.
They also took my incubus story Dreamless and reposted it as Lilin. This fic was posted as a part of a collab for my close friend’s artwork.reallycorking drew this (VERY NSFW) art as part of a 30 day challenge, and the two of us worked together for a full month on Dreamless. Here is my fic masterpost for last year, and a link to my AO3.
I wanted to share links to the rest of our work because we don’t know how many stories she stole (it seemed like there were around 10 in total). We didn’t even have time to make a note of everything before she removed her accounts. So we don’t know what people read and might want to re-find (if there’s any interest cross-fandom).
Again, the One Direction fandom has been so incredibly supportive (Gina, Ange, phd-mama, Emmi, Lisa and everyone who was so helpful and understanding). Ellie and I started off the morning crushed, and now I have comments in my inbox on the fics that were stolen, and asks on Tumblr showing support, and it’s nearly brought me to tears. Thank you all so much. If anyone who sees this would be kind enough to get the word out there in any way (reblogs, just telling your friends who’ve read these stories, anything!!), we’d be incredibly grateful.
THANK YOU, to everyone who takes the time to read this.
