{I've been reading your stories since the advent of From the Darkness We Rise, and I fully intend to read your stuff well after the COFT Epilogue. Basically, if you're writing, I'm reading.}

“since the advent of From the Darkness We Rise“

Ohhhhh my goodness. Basically back when I didn’t think it would be a long story, let alone a series, let alone much of anything at all. O.O

I still remember putting up that first chapter and fully expecting to not do anything with it and abandon it and I’m pretty sure one of the main reasons I didn’t was because folks were like ‘you’re evil, what happens next?’ Lol. Also because it took me 200 years to get Jack laid. I’m pretty sure he was on a shorter trajectory in my mind, and then I started writing it and my brain was like ‘nope! It gonna take forever!’

sooo, if i’m not wrong today is mjoyart‘s birthday, right? eheheh 
this is a little present i made for you, your art really is SO inspiring for me and i love everything about it and since your shire family is incredibly adorable i made a little one for you -vv-
so yeah, happy birthday dear, i hope you had a good one <33

(oh, it’s transparent eheh)

To paraphrase a certain angel, “NAOMI IS BACK IN TOWN” 

and still super sad

But hey. I’ve missed you guys like crazy and I needed to come back. I feel super lonely around here and I need you guys. It’s just been so hard coming on here and seeing photos of MinnCon and VanCon and happy things…It’s just been really difficult. Change is always really hard for me, and moving to college is definitely a big one. 

But man, do I ever have stories for you. sO COME SAY HI. COME TALK TO ME. PLEASE. I’M SO LONELY. MY FIRST FRIDAY NIGHT AFTER COLLEGE CLASSES AND I’M DOING LAUNDRY. I FKN MISS ALL OF YOU. DID YOU GUYS MISS ME? I REALLY HOPE SO OMG WE HAVE SO MUCH TO CATCH UP ON.

Heads up on a few things:

  • I’m gonna make a separate post doing something like blogrates/compliments/etc to promote my coming back
  • I’m starting to fill up my queue again
  • I’m still sad, so kind words would be really nice. Like reeeaaalllyyy nice.
  • But I’m coming back for you. I’ve just missed you too much.
  • It may be hard at first, so please bear with me
  • I’m gonna make a post showing you guys my dorm room :)))
  • Come talk to me! Tell me how you’ve been!

ps - if my lovely anon/anon friend is out there reading this, please know that I did read every one of your messages. They were a little beam of light for me each day. I never responded to them because I wanted to keep them and I just didn’t feel I had the right words to thank you. So if you’re here, I want you to know how much you mean to me and how much you’ve helped me. Lots of love, my beautiful friend <3

so my uni has two local campuses. i live on one and take classes on both, so i take a shuttle bus between the two campuses on the days that i have to be at the other one. i always say ‘thank you’ to the driver when i’m leaving the bus, and i’ve noticed since classes started this week that people look at me like i’m fucking nuts when i do it. i do it when i ride the city bus, too. or when i take a greyhound home during holidays and such. and people just give me this look like it’s ridiculous to thank someone just because they’re doing their job.

like, no? it’s not? it’s polite and also it’s not just a thank you for doing your job but a ‘thank you for getting me here safely’

MANNERS MAKETH MAN, DAMN IT

I just got done taking a shower and was walking downstairs to get dressed wearing a towel and my hair wrapped up in a turban to dry and Roxie didn’t recognize me in the dark and she came running up to me sounding her alarm bark and I just stood there waiting and she got up to me and stopped and sniffed and was like oh okay it’s you and walked back to where she was a laid down.

you want to know why we talk crap in the middle of the fights? it’s because we are terrified. some folks can sublimate it, tamp it down, keep it together. but every time i open my mouth to get some other stupid thing out, i have to shout so i don’t choke on my own heartbeat.

Why is it cool to be mean? Why is it cool to not care about people’s feelings? Why is it cool to be emotionless? Why do we compete to see who cares less? Why is dehumanizing ourselves a trend?

Why do I reblog people’s art/drawings you ask?  Because they put their time and love into that piece.  They were inspired enough by a prompt posted on this blog that they wanted to make something that popped up in their brain and flourished into something that they just had to get it out there.  And once they’ve done that, they’ve gone even an extra step and decided to share it with the world rather than keeping it to themselves.  Sometimes they don’t tag the blog in the tag section, but sometimes they put themselves out there even more and go for it.  Why?  Because they want to share it, they want to find other people with similar headcanons, interests, ships, fandoms, etc., they want to get a bigger audience.  They have made something that means something to them and they have decided to share it with us.

And that is why I am 5000% against people reblogging those works to write insults and degrading comments in the tags or actual post or actually send them rude, anonymous messages.  If I see you doing this/find out you have, you will be blocked.  No exceptions.  I’m not even close to fucking around, okay?  I am absolutely furious at what people do on this site, this sense of entitlement some of you have.  If you don’t like it/aren’t in the fandom/don’t like the ship/whatever, then don’t reblog it.  Talk shit, get blocked.

Jongdae’s freestyle dance, quickly joined by Minseok but almost as quickly rejected by Chanyeol too

I’m feeling really good about seeing Alberto.  I’m trying hard to think of a way someone can see Preston with Louis and Alberto with Zayn and still rationally claim that something supremely fishy is not going on here.  How anyone can claim to be logical and say that Zayn and One Direction have cut all ties.  You can’t, pure and simple.
