it was basically fanfiction

anonymous asked:


Send me a ship and I’ll tell you…

Who asks the other on dates: 
Harry! He’s the one that surprises Niall by taking him on helicopter rides over mountains and plans long romantic evenings together. Niall chooses to spend his choice for date nights cuddled on the couch with a beer and a movie.

Who is the bigger cuddler:
Openly? Harry. Secretly? It’s Niall. Harry constantly pulls Niall onto his lap, just holding him and breathing him in. Harry loves to slip his arms around Niall when he least expects it; constantly starts tickle wars (or snog sessions) that Niall pretends he doesn’t love. But Niall enjoys the nights where they are together in their own bed the most, snuggled up behind Harry, just enjoying the closeness. 

Who initiates holding hands more often:
Niall, because he likes the private intimacy of being able to hold hands with Harry in the comfort of their home. Harry grounds him, like nothing else, so it’s just so easy to press up to his side, or place a hand on his back, or entwine their hands together.

Who remembers anniversaries:
Harry remembers the anniversaries like they’re his favourite song lyrics, constantly reminds Niall of them weeks, months before they actually come, but that doesn’t mean that Niall forgets. He’s silent in his knowledge, pretending to be surprised when Harry takes him on some extravagant trip across the world. Just nodding whenever Harry complains about Niall’s bad memory.

Who is more possessive:
Harry, because he likes the way he can fold his big hands over Niall’s hips at the club, watching as others frown in jealousy. Likes sucking hickeys into Niall’s neck because they’re together and Harry really likes when everyone knows about it.

Who gets more jealous:
Niall, because Harry is beautiful in that untouchable way that everyone wants, and sometimes it gets a bit overwhelming, knowing that so many people want Harry, even if Niall knows he’ll always come back to him.

Who is more protective:
Harry is protective, more so than Niall I think, because Niall is a person who looks after others before looking after himself. And sometimes Harry has to be that person that looks after Niall, but he loves it, and wouldn’t have it any other way.

Who is more likely to cheat:
Neither ‘cause this is a shitty question and neither would cheat.

Who initiates sexy times the most:
Harry, whether it’s a not-so-subtle bite under Niall’s jaw, or a complete hand down his pants while they’re in the middle of doing something completely mundane, like watching tv, Harry is the one who is constantly trying to lure Niall to bend him over the couch. ;)

Who dislikes PDA the most:
Like showing PDA? I’d say Niall? Neither of them is super comfortable with it, because of the way that everyone constantly tried to have an opinion about their relationship when they first got together, so they aren’t the most affectionate couple out in public. But I think Niall would get more annoyed when Harry is trying to touch him or kiss him, and Niall just wants to run away from all of the stares that are coming their way.

Who kills the spider:
Harry, surprisingly, because if he doesn’t then Niall will just let them live in the house, and fuck if Harry’s gonna’ let that happen.

Who asks the other to marry them:
Niall tries, but Harry thinks that it’s not fair that only one of them get to propose, so he does it as well a few days later, just in the quiet atmosphere of their living room, unlike the private, romantic dinner on the pier where Niall decided to pull out his ring the first time. (Niall secretly loves Harry’s ridiculous quirks, but pretends to be annoyed when his long emotional proposal speech is interrupted by Harry, who wants to do this proposal thing his way too, and Niall tries to be angry, he really, truly does, but Harry’s pleading face gets him every time.)

Who buys the other flowers or gifts:
They both do, but Harry likes to surprise Niall with experiences, like scuba diving or traveling to Hawai’i, big, grand gestures that they get to enjoy together, and Niall likes to send Harry boxes of chocolates or flowers to the recording studio or set that Harry is in, and then refuse to admit that he sent them.

Who would bring up possibly having kids:
Niall, because they’ve been skirting around the idea for a while but he knows that Harry doesn’t want to be pushy, so he brings it up, late one night while they’re curled up in their bed. Harry is giddy, grinning into the curve of Niall’s neck as he hugs him, and Niall just can’t wait for the joy that their child will bring to them, and to the world.

Who is more nervous to meet the parents:
Niall, because he knows how protective Anne and Gemma are, and he’s not scared they’ll dislike him, knows they don’t dislike him, but is just a bit afraid that they’ll think he isn’t good enough for their son and brother.

Who sleeps on the couch when the other is angry:
Niall, ‘cause Harry is a drama queen when he’s upset and Niall knows that he sometimes has to just let him brood for a few hours. But Harry always wakes up in the middle of the night, still annoyed but feeling slightly guilty about it, dragging Niall back into their room until the morning when they can talk it through.

Who tries to make up first after arguments:
Niall tries his damned hardest after fights to make it better, because he hates to see Harry cry, and sometimes he pushes his own feelings under the rug when Harry is upset.

Who tells the other they love them more often:
Harry says the words more, whispers them against Niall’s ear or screams them out of the window of their car, likes the way the words curl off his tongue and the way they make Niall go pink and blotchy. Niall says I love you with soft touches and discrete smiles and breathy moans, using his actions rather than his words to express himself.

So, when I was doing my thesis on whether or not fanfiction should be considered a legitimate genre of literature, my advising professor asked me for examples.  I gave him the generic ones, of course - “Pride & Prejudice and Zombies” is a horror fanfic of “Pride & Prejudice”, “50 Shades of Grey” is an erotica fic of “Twilight" - and that seemed to make him understand what fanfiction is, but not how it’s useful.  So I thought about it, and, after about a minute, I said, “Paradise Lost is basically a fanfiction of the Book of Genesis.  And The Divine Comedy is an epic self-insertion fic for Catholic doctrine.  So, basically, you were teaching us fanfiction last semester.”  I had never before seen a grown man’s eyes widen with such fear, incomprehension, disgust, awe, and understanding.

Otp Moments ~ Prompts

“I fell into your lap on accident oh god you’re so close now I can’t breathe”

“You’re cutting my hair and I’m trying not to focus on your hands in my hair and your breath on my neck”

“I scraped my knee and now your fixing it up and I swear if you don’t stop running your hands over my leg I will kick you”

“We may or may not be hiding in a locker and we may or may not be squished against each other”

“Hold me I’m cold…oh god you are VERY close is that my heart or freaking sonic stuck in my chest”

“Hey, you got something on your face let me get it for you, wait oh crap”

“We’re doing that trusting exercise of staring at each other for 5 minutes and the tension between us is suffocating”

“Here I’ll help you, I know first aid, just sit still”

“This sofa is very small and our legs are brushing and our shoulders touching and now you’re whispering something in my ear I can’t handle this”

“I did NOT mean to lean into you I just saw something okay I SWEAR”

“You tried to reach across me but your face got really close to mine and now we’re just staring at each other”

“I’m going to teach you how to dance, come here”

Some more jack and Gabe for you in these trying times. I’ve basically tricked myself into making an extremely lazy half-assed fanfiction at this point.

I feel like Gabe is the kind of guy who takes himself so seriously he won’t let his guard down until he is 100% sure he isn’t getting set up to be the punchline to something. And Jack is probably the type who doesn’t like to over-explain things.

/ 1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5 / 6 / 7 / 8 / 9 / 10 / 11 / 12 / 13 / 14 / 15 / 16 / 17 / 18 / 19 / 20 / 21 / 22 / 23 /

Hurt/Comfort is such an interesting thing. It’s basically an entire genre of fanfiction. I’d argue it satisfies a very basic, vital need–the same way that horror satisfies the basic need to be scared in a safe, controllable space. 

And yet it doesn’t really have an equivalent outside of fan culture. "Tearjerkers” can sometimes come close, they’re probably the closest thing to a mainstream hurt/comfort genre that there is. But those types of books and movies don’t usually focus on the “comfort” aspect in the same way, and don’t make use of tension and release.

I think every good hurt/comfort fic makes use of tension and release just as horror does, whether the writer is consciously aware of it or not. Though of course the tension and release in h/c comes from different sources than in horror. Instead of anticipating something frightening, you anticipate the intimacy and/or validation that comes from the “comfort” part you know is eventually coming. That’s what provides release of the tension built up during the “hurt” scenes.

I could write a goddamned essay about this it’s so fascinating.

anonymous asked:

what are ur malec headcanons? :D

[Part 2 here]

  1. They never sleep on an argument.
  2. Alec is sensitive about how tall he is, but loves that Magnus has to stand on his tip toes to kiss him. He finds it endearing.
  3. One of Magnus’ favourite movies is The Labyrinth, and when Alec asks why, he replies “Tight pants and glitter, what more could you want?”
  4. Also sings along to “Dance, Magic Dance.” while Alec snorts and rolls his eyes.
  5. Neither of them are bad at cooking but Magnus prepares fancy dishes with his magic and Alec loves to watch him do so.
  6. Magnus loves the way Alec smells, and because of the height difference, he adores being able to snuggle into Alec’s chest whenever they cuddle.
  7. Alec loves watching Magnus paint his nails.
  8. Izzy and Magnus are bbfs (that’s best bisexual friends) 5va and Alec is dragged along on their shopping escapades.
  9. Magnus loves singing, he sings all the time
  10. Alec loves lazy days with Magnus, and secretly adores it when Magnus wears his clothes because they end up smelling like Magnus.
  11. They’ve gotten so close and used to each other that they find themselves (sometimes unconsciously) constantly touching when they’re around each other. 
  12. Magnus adores Alec’s laugh. He’ll spend each and every day trying to make him laugh at least once.
  13. Alec loves Magnus’ hair. Whenever they kiss, he always runs his fingers through it. Magnus secretly likes this too.
  14. Magnus is quite the artist, and when they’re just cuddling or watching a movie, he sometimes likes to draw Alec. 
  15. Sometimes he’ll also doodle on Alec’s forearms, and Alec just lets him. 
  16. Alec likes to give Magnus hickeys as he’s secretly rather possessive. Magnus thinks it’s hot, and gives him hickeys right back.
  17. One time they have a really heated argument. Alec snaps, surges forward and captures Magnus’ lips, taking the warlock by surprise. He lifts Magnus up and Magnus immediately wraps his legs around Alec’s waist. Alec stumbles, and pins Magnus between himself and the nearest wall. They kiss desperately, frantically, moaning and wrapping their arms around eachother tight. Magnus runs his fingers through Alec’s hair, for a change, and this only spurs Alec on. When they (eventually) break apart, panting, Magnus throws his head back against the wall, trying to catch his breath. Meanwhile, Alec busies himself with licking and biting and sucking at Magnus’ neck. Magnus closes his eyes and whimpers “Oh, Alexander…”
  18. The next morning, they forget what the fuck they were even arguing about.

sooo thanks to reading heartstrings by @taylordraws i was up til 3am doodling this garbage. god help my lost soul.

also i’d been talking to @littleblackchat all day about it and she was designing up what she imagined Mari’s dress from chapter 3 looked like, and I doodled this version based on her descriptions and early doodles of it xD so it’s a little different from the one she posted. Also I pointed out that the keyhole in the dress was perfect for Adrien in that scene, since he put his hand there and gyid7573943778hsjdfj IMAGINE IT GUYS imagine it

set’s in 2x11: alex get’s hurt and maggie and her share a passionate kiss in front of everyone.

based on the spoilers who turned out to be false.

ao3 link. comments and kudos are always appreciated!

Alex is not answering her calls or her messages and Maggie knew that something must have gone wrong. Because Alex would never ignore her, specially not when they had made plans. But Alex is not answering and Maggie is so worried sick, close to losing it.

And then, Maggie finally got a text from Alex and she felt her heartbeat rising, anxiety slowly settling in her stomach.

DEO is on lockdown, can’t make it to the concert. I’m sorry.

Maggie slowly breathed in and out, closing her eyes and trying to convince herself that Alex is fine, that Alex is not going to get her hurt, that she will see her again, no harm done to her.

It didn’t work.

Maggie grabbed her keys, pulled over her oversized police jacket (which she wouldn’t trade for anything in life) and left her flat, only one thing on her mind.


On her way out, she called James, wanting to make sure if he is locked in as well, but it turns out he wasn’t, but apparently Winn is and James told her he would meet her before the DEO.

When she arrived before the DEO, James was already there and the softness in his eyes calmed Maggie down to the point where she could finally breathe again.

He opened his arms and Maggie let herself into his embrace, closing her eyes.

“She is okay, you know that.” He whispered and Maggie nodded, knowing that Alex was the strongest person she has ever met. Nevertheless, the thought of losing Alex was making her heart ache.

I’ve reached that dangerous stage of writing when the story is so clear inside my head it’s like I’ve seen a movie about it, which means either it’ll be a joy to write it down or I’ll gradually start to see all the problems I’m not seeing now and probably stab myself with a fountain pen.
