it is what matter

chara love #13

Save it for the NSFW blog! (And based on the last commission we posted there, you are certainly not alone…)

It would be a friendship built on LIES

Chara can’t help being really, really, ridiculously good looking.

There’s too many of them to fight– it’s not worth it!

It’s just a regular canine tooth, but yes.

If you still have your soul, then yes they’ll chase you.

Throwing humans into the snow really captures their good side.

On a positive note: To anyone (like me) who sometimes gets worried their fics are OOC; the people who get paid real life money to write characterization for Len and Mick just did that so…yeah. 

anonymous asked:

I'd be mildly worried someone would take the mask or destroy it...

Nah. The chances are fairly slim, considering they’d have to cut the thing down at this point to get it off the tree. And it’s already… not hidden, but is quite discrete. Despite the fact that Oddfellows was where people really started noticing the coalfire, it’s a very small cemetery and it definitely looks like most folks go to the bigger one down the road and across the street.

So they would have to not only find the small, hidden cemetery, but head to the very back, see the dang thing through the fence, hop the fence, travel through some gnarly underbrush, and then cut the thing down.

anonymous asked:

What is writing to you? Why do you do it? Why do you love it?

Thanks for this thought-provoking ask, anon! I hope you don’t mind that I sat on it for a few days mulling over how best to answer. 

First of all, I see a lot of writers–both professional and not–often saying things like “I don’t just want to write, I HAVE to write! I can’t NOT write! Writing isn’t something I do, it’s who I AM!” Paraphrased, of course, but you get the idea. And I have to say that’s…not me? Or at least, not to that extent. I do feel cranky, restless, and down on myself if I haven’t written for an extended period of time. But I also tend to feel those things a general rule, haha. It’s exacerbated if I don’t write, but I still can’t say I think of myself as one of those “writing as a state of being” or “I have to write or I’ll die” types of people.

I mention this because that “real writers can’t stop themselves from writing” mentality has been pretty discouraging for me in the past, and is something I still struggle with at times. The way I see it, if you write, you’re a writer. Doesn’t matter if it’s every single day or once every few months. Writing is hard enough without having to worry about conforming to artificial notions on what makes a legitimate writer.

Now that I’ve got that out of the way, I don’t think I can pinpoint any one motivation for all my writing. Sometimes, like with much of my fanfic, it’s purely for my own satisfaction. The original canon left a hole, or an unfinished plot thread, or an underdeveloped character or relationship, and being able to fill that hole or expand on that character/relationship with my own writing is a huge mental itch-scratcher. 

But another motivation is to connect with other people. I often see those posts going around on Tumblr that say “write for you! write what you want! don’t worry about other people’s opinions!” I don’t disagree with those; heck, the two pairings I’ve written the most about are both extremely rare pairings, so I do think it’s important to write what you’re passionate about even if it’s not the popular thing. But I also think it’s safe to say that most everyone wants to be heard, wants to make an impact on others in some way. And that doesn’t have to be something huge or grandiose, either. Some of my favorite types of fanfic comments are the ones that say “this story made me laugh/cry/smile/etc.” Just being able to know that my writing made somebody feel something is a really neat experience.

At the end of the day, I think that’s the primary thing that makes me motivated to write, and also why I’m starting to branch out into original writing: because the ability of stories and storytellers to inspire, influence, and otherwise make their audience feel things is important and can be really powerful. People remember and react to things that make them feel strongly, and fiction, when executed right, can absolutely do that.

i keep trying to memorize every detail of the moments i live in. in the soreness of my legs from standing so long at a concert, the chill of the night, the patterns of a tablecloth, the oily texture in my mouth after eating fried bananas. i keep trying to memorize the feelings, the quiet contentedness, the laughter, the excitement. i keep trying to memorize the people, their smiles, the way they speak, what makes them laugh. i’m constantly on the cusp of the next part of my life and that’s just so.. strange. but it makes it so much easier to find happiness no matter what’s happening to me, in a way? because i’m already kind of looking at life with those rose-colored glasses of nostalgia, simply because i know these are times i’ll never be able to live again, and these are people i might not always have, and that makes it so much easier to appreciate everything i might miss later. 

Steve has no shades of grey when it comes to Bucky and I love him for it. Bucky’s in Austria, whats he gonna do, walk there? If that’s what it takes. He’s been brainwashed Steve, he doesn’t know you. He will. Steve he’s wanted by multiple governments, why won’t you hand him over? He’s my friend and it wasn’t his fault. Like, there’s no question for Steve, there’s no part of him that hesitates, no other factors play into it, is it Bucky? Does he need help? Steve will do whatever it takes to give it to him. Can you believe how much he loves Bucky wow.

A note for all of us who feel defeated after Sessions from the Indivisible Team: This is the long game.

A note for all of us who feel defeated after Sessions from the Indivisible Team: This is the long game. We are going to lose a lot. We are going to get good at losing. We are going to lose cabinet votes for terrible nominees. We are going to lose bills that are offensive and appalling. But while we are losing, something else is going to happen. We are going to keep raising our voices and slowly our representatives are going to start listening to us. We’ve seen it happen. 

It won’t happen because of next week’s call to action. It’ll happen over months, where you keep showing up, regularly. Then, we are going to start winning. It’ll sneak up on us. We won’t understand why we are winning. But it starts with losing in a particular way- where we raise our voices and call it out when we aren’t listened to, where we get close but not quite there.

The first 100 days of a President’s term are the honeymoon period, the moment when he’s most likely to get his agenda enacted. Trump is spending his first 100 days mired in controversy, scandal, and backbiting - and that’s because you haven’t for a moment let anyone in Washington forget just how unpopular he is.

Every time we change the narrative, every time we delay, every time there’s a newspaper story about a member of Congress avoiding his or her constituents, that’s a win. And it matters.

You have already made history. You’ve delayed the confirmation of Trump’s cabinet picks longer than any time in recent history. You stopped the gutting on the congressional ethics office. You’ve made Republicans so nervous about the repeal of the Affordable Care Act that it’s been pushed further and further down the road. You caused an uproar of historic proportions over Trump’s Muslim ban and saved lives and reunited families in the process. You’ve inspired people who have never before taken action to make their voices heard and learn how to do things like check how their members of Congress voted and call them out for it.

We’ll never even know about some of the victories - because those will be the fights that this Administration considered starting and then realized it couldn’t win.

We’re in this together. Every visit. Every call. Every loss. Every win. That’s just what friends do. #StandIndivisible

[my original tweet]

ppl who get called out and then scan their critics  for mildly ableist insults (ie ‘stupid’, etc) so they can go “WELL UH YOURE ABLEIST” are pathetic and its blatantly obvious that youre just trying to discredit your critics if you do that. bonus points if they arent even developmentally disabled but the ppl using those words are
