just the stuff written on it

“When Derek ran and fled his dead home and the old land, he found himself deep in a strange forest, in a place he didn’t knew and with a boy, who claims to be a deity.”

“Never saw Derek such wonders as those the boy showed him.”

.

Or stuff. I’m working on something, but I can’t promise that this will work out, especially since I’m not really a writer. My thoughts just started to form sentences and I already started to write down so many notes to everything my mind is thinking out, already have songs and pictures as inspiration and for the mood, so.. let’s see. 

(Please ignore any mistakes. English is not my first language.)

Ah shit I wasn’t expecting to get emotional today.

…I have very low confidence in myself, as a writer and as an artist. I am also extremely shy in real life (probably couldn’t tell on here, right?)

I can’t tell you how many times I’ve drawn or written something and wanted to share it, only to back out at the last minute. And when I do share it, I’m scared to even look at it again because I think “No one will like it”.

I have some kind of anxiety that just tells me every day that my stuff just…isn’t good enough. That I’m just wasting my time trying. I think that’s why for the longest time, I just stopped. No drawing, no writing.

Villainous helped get me out of a rut that I’d been in for so long. I was having fun creating characters again, giving them backstories and designing them. Doing stupid little comics just to make people laugh. I never expected anyone to like my stuff. I didn’t expect anyone to draw my characters.

Hell, I never expected Carved Rainbows to actually become a thing.

This is going to sound really sappy but I am super grateful for the last few weeks. I’ve been inspired by so much, art and fanfiction a like. I look forward to checking tumblr every morning, just to see what the new day has brought. And the reactions. I’d be lying if I said I didn’t read the tags when someone reblogs the fics.

Just… thank you, guys. You all are amazing.

So I have a question, I'm almost done with my thesis I have one chapter in the conclusion left, but I need to read for that chapter. Because of unforeseen events I had to stop for almost a semester to help take care of my family who fell ill. As of now I have no motivation to start working again do you have any advice?

Finding motivation to start again can be so tough! I hope I can be of help here, but I would strongly suggest trying around because what works for me (which is usually just blunt force trauma) might not work for you!

Here’s what I would suggest, though:

  • Make sure you have the rest of your work under your belt. Go back and re-read the stuff you’ve already written and take notes if you feel like things have been left unclear. Think of this as getting reacquainted with your thesis.
  • Organize your reading material in order of necessity. You need to prioritize so you can have a game plan. Is the stuff left to read primary or secondary? What is most important? What is most time-consuming? What do you want to read first?
    • But also find something that will get your groove back on. A good way of going about this coming-back-to-work rut is to make sure you feel excited or happy or interested about what you have in your hands. Is that one article really kinda marginal but you’ve been meaning to read it? Go for it. 
  • Make sure you do have a game plan. Set your deadline, break the time between then and now into manageable chunks, and be realistic about what you can accomplish and how. Making lists and schedules is one of my favorite ways of dealing with large projects when I don’t know where to begin.
  • Don’t get too caught on reading–move on to writing! I know you said you need to read and I’ve said it before that, when I was writing my MA theses, I would be reading until right before finishing the work. But you need to pair that with actual writing, otherwise the project doesn’t get done. 

And most important: don’t expect to be back on track as the day you left if offand don’t be too hard on yourself about it! It’s better to go slowly but constantly than to try and tackle too much and end up burned out!

In the spirit of Aggressively Arospec Month, I’ve decided to repost the aro Jotaro fic I wrote back in March. Normally I’d just link the AO3 post, but seeing as Tungle.hell doesn’t let outside links appear in tags anymore, I’ll just post it here. It’s short enough, anyway.

This is a very personal piece that was written very hastily, partly as a vent fic, and partly out of bitterness that the one (1) fic in the aromantic tag for JJBA at the time was about Polnareff having a one-sided crush on Kakyoin. It may not be the best fic in the world, but I hope it at least helps someone understand what it’s like to be aromantic. Please don’t forget about us.

Rating: M (Swearing, mentions of sexual stuff)
Words: 2,212
Characters: Jotaro and Kakyoin
Pairings: NONE
Content warnings: Internalized arophobia, whatever the hell you would call mentions of fucking anthropomorphic trains (…it makes more sense in context I swear)

Hi!! I was curious... do you have any tips for someone who is wanting to dip their toes into the fanfic writing world? :)

This isn’t really a tip, but I think it’s very important when it comes to writing fanfic. Just have fun. Write what you want and what you love. That’s the beautiful thing about fanfic, you get to do whatever you please. But if you are looking for tips on writing, my main one is write every day. No matter how much or how little, try and set aside time every day to get some writing down. Also, don’t be afraid to push yourself, go outside your comfort zone. That’s when some of your best stuff is going to be written.

okay but what about reader in a poly relationship with mark and amy?? like maybe the rest of teamiplier didn't realize they were in a poly relationship until they see mark and amy together one day and literally the next day they see the reader and amy bein all cute together but mark explains it then he just lovingly looks at his girls and it's really fluffy?? sorry if it's confusing,,

Hey buddy, I don’t think I’ve written any poly!reader stuff so I’ll try my bet at this! If it proves to be too difficult for me since it’s my first time then it’s gonna have to be a no go b I don’t want to put out any fics that I don’t feel 100% good about. It’s going in my drafts though don’t worry! Thanks for the request!

Waiting

Draco was tired of waiting.

He came to the conclusion that waiting was the biggest waste one could do with his life.

And he had wasted a lot of his life already. Waiting.

He had waited for his father to acknowledge him, to show him he was proud of his son.

He had waited for his mother to stand up to his father, whenever he had talked her down, whenever he had treated her like less than his wife.

He had waited for his friends to come to his rescue when he had needed them most, to save him from himself.

And he had waited for the stupid prat to notice him. Really notice him. To look beyond the petty insults and his sneering.

For years Draco had been waiting.

He had waited in vain. But not anymore.

Draco was sick of waiting.

What had he even waited for? For him to come to the right conclusion, when Draco hid his true intentions so well? For him to realise what was really going on?

He probably would have to wait forever.

No. He would have to take matters into his own hands. And whyever should he not?

Yes, it was time to act.

Draco focused on the mop of black hair across the Great Hall.

He was sick of waiting.

He got up, marched over to the Gryffindor table and grabbed Potter by his robes. Without waiting for his reaction, Draco started dragging him out of his seat.

There was a yelp and shouts of protest, but Draco didn’t care.

He was so sick of waiting.

“Malfoy, what are you doing?” Potter shouted, shoving at Draco’s hands.

Draco ignored him and dragged him out of the Great Hall.

He could hear Weasley and Granger shout something at him. He heard footsteps behind him, indicating that several people were following him. Potter was still trying to get out of his grip.

Draco had wanted to find a more secluded place to do what he wanted to do next, but when the shouts behind him only got louder, he turned around and glared at them.

“You want to watch? FINE! I don’t even care anymore!”

He tightened his grip on Potter’s robes as he pulled him towards him forcefully.

Because he was so tired of waiting.

His mouth crashed with Potter’s and suddenly everything went silent.

Draco had thought it would be rougher, that Potter would try to fight him more. Apparently he was just shocked. He stiffened as Draco moved his lips against the other boy’s. He buried his hands in his hair like he had dreamed of so many times.

He had waited for this so long. This was it.

Or was it?

Draco suddenly noticed Potter moving and braced himself to be pushed away at any second. Instead, tentative fingers curled around his hips to pull him closer.

Draco was sure there were gasps and murmuring, but he didn’t hear any of it.

His whole mind, his whole body was so consumed by Potter. Potter, who was kissing him back.

Yes. This was what he had been waiting for all this time.

If only he had stopped waiting sooner.

You know, it’s pretty wild just how much I can relate to so many of the SU characters. Like, all of the main characters are like me in some way, not to mention some of the humans too like Lars and his fear of what people think of him, Sadie and her overbearing mom, Kiki not being able to tell someone no. Hell, even Yellow Diamond’s tyranical ass repressing her emotions and literally singing an entire song about what’s the use of feeling is relatable.

And, I just love it so much. I can’t believe how many of the characters on this show are like me. We share the same fears and struggles and issues. Sometimes it’s like I’m watching myself on screen and I can sympathize so badly with a character, even characters who I thought were nothing like me can say or do something that puts me in shock because I’m suddenly being reminded of myself. I’m really so grateful to this show because with other stuff I watch, there’s typically only one character I can relate to and I’m lucky if there’s a second. Some shows, I don’t even relate to any of the characters at all. But, with SU, so many of the characters are like pieces of me. And, I absolutely adore it. 

I love this show, I love these characters, I love the way they’re written, I love their depth and layers, I love how the writers refused to just have them be cartoony caricatures and made them multifaceted, three-dimensional, realistic individuals that are still learning and growing and healing, the way that I am still learning and growing and healing.

NHL!Bitty, Pt. IV - RPF

@missweber requested NHL!Bitty dealing with Hockey RPF. This got a little longer than expected, with a side pairing of Jack/philly-cheesesteak. Takes place a few months into Bitty’s second season with the Schooners. 

Origin: From Samwell to SeattlePart I - Hug Check | Part II - Chirping | Part III - Post-Season




The most annoying thing is that for all of the ‘Jack/Parse’, ‘Jack/Tater’, ‘Jack/Sid’‘Jack/fucking-every-player-on-the-east-coast’ fic, there are a whopping SIX  ‘Jack/Eric’ fics on Ao3. Six.

On one hand, Eric’s proud they’ve hidden their relationship so well, on the other, Eric is insulted. But really, with their disappointing portmanteau of ‘Jeric’ or ‘Zittle’, it’s not surprising they’re horribly under-appreciated.

“I just wish my fans were more creative.”

Over Skype, Eric watches Jack plow through a Philly cheesesteak with no small measure of jealousy. He’s lonely and hungry, and his asshole boyfriend is doing this on purpose.

“You know,” Jack says, talking out of the side of his half-full mouth, “if you let the Schoons call you ‘Bitty’ our name could have been ‘Zimbits’. That’s kinda on you.”

“Everything about this woman was both hard yet soft, delicate yet bold, wild yet calm. She was a storm that called to Cassian; it beckoned him into its grasp. A storm that he didn’t want to avoid anymore. He wanted to give in to the urges that pulled him to Nesta and he wanted her to do the same. So he let go of all pretense, closed his eyes, and leaned in to finally, finally, kiss the catastrophically beautiful woman below him.”

Harry Styles: 'It Was Time For Me To Be Scared'
After One Direction hit the pause button, Styles got to work developing his own voice for his recent solo debut. "I've never felt this vulnerable putting out music," he says.

David Greene: Is there a song where you got it, sang it, created it and said, “I’m doing this. I’m on my own. I’ve created something that’s really me as a musician”?

Harry Styles: I think I’ve always written bits of songs alone, and then I usually take stuff in and try to finish it with someone. “Sign of the Times” was one of those where I just kind of wrote it. We basically ended up in a place where the album had a bunch of rock songs and a bunch of acoustic, kind of picked ballad songs. And I wrote “Sign of the Times” and just felt like there was all this middle ground that I wanted to then explore. And I think that’s the one that kind of started bridging us to different places in terms of experimenting a little more.

I read that the genesis of “Sign of the Times” was the idea of a mother being told that she wasn’t going to make it and what message she wanted to give to her child.

Yeah, I think we were thinking about — there’s a lot of bad stuff going on in the world. And it’s not the last time that we will be in a place like that. I think the way that we receive information all the time now, it’s really difficult to ignore that stuff — and I think it would have been weird for me to write an album and not acknowledge that there’s anything bad going on in the world. And I think we were writing it from a place of — you have five minutes to say, “It’s going to be all right.”

Let me ask you about your fans. When we were walking in here to get to the Roxy, there was a legion of a few dozen young women peeking around to see if they’d get a glimpse of you. It’s so easy to stereotype that kind of fan base and say that it’s just a bunch of young teenage girls who are Snapchatting when they spot you and not paying attention to the music. What do you make of that fan base?

The thing is, people stereotype it as their attraction to the music is something other than the music, and I think that’s unfair. And honestly, I think it’s writing people off. It’s kind of rude. Everyone’s musical taste is different, and there’s no right or wrong answer. So I don’t know who’s the person in the world who is like — that guy has good music taste.

I wondered if, with such a loyal fan base, you ever feared that they were just going to be with you no matter what music you made — so it would almost make it less meaningful what you were doing, because they would never say anything bad about you.

I actually think that the kind of fans that we’ve had are the most honest.

There’s no playing it cool, or overthinking it?

Yeah. Everyone meets those people where they like something and they’ll never admit they’ll like it. … I’d rather someone be honest with me, and I wanted to be honest with the album.

Is it scary to be out on your own?

I’ve never felt this vulnerable putting out music, because I don’t think this is a piece of myself I’ve put out there before. And, simple fact: When there are other people around you, you share the good stuff — but you also get to share the bad stuff and hide behind everyone else a little bit. So with this, yeah, it is scary. But I think it was time for me to be scared. And I’m still very much learning. And I’m having the time of my life working this out.

Is there a song you want us to play, as we go out here?

My favorite from the album is the last song, “From The Dining Table.” It’s just personal, and I don’t feel like I’ve written a song like this before.

Hey can I have more ADHD characters that aren’t your “lol so random and hyperactive and funny” trope.

Like

I want characters with memory issues, who can’t pay attention, who hyperfocus on something, who are scatterbrained and constantly losing their stuff, who have issues with executive function, who have issues with time management, who need to get things written down otherwise they won’t remember it

I want characters who actually take medication too. Like, I’ve NEVER found a book or movie character who has ADHD and takes medication for it.

Can I have more characters with ADHD that isn’t shoehorned into a stupid trope

Ugh I can’t believe I’m diving headfirst into the TAZ discourse but here’s my 2 cents on both the graphic novel and the Blupjeans issue. I know I can’t speak for the people who feel marginalized by this but here we go.


The graphic novel:

–I think y’all are holding the Mcelroys and the graphic novel artist at gunpoint here. Stop that. Gently inform them of your opinions on what they could do better or what you think they did wrong if anything (it’s called constructive criticism), and let them make their own darned creative decisions. They’ve proven time and time again that they care about their fanbase.

–No one is perfect, my dudes. If you hold people up on a pedestal and then immediately flip-flop your opinion of them to “shitty racists” when they make a single mistake, not only is that terrifying as a creator but it’s just a toxic environment in the first place. Again with the whole gently inform them that they made a mistake thing. 

–In my opinion they should have gone with a prose novel or something because there are so many infinitely diverse and infinitely valid interpretations of the characters. Such a set-in-stone visual medium as a graphic novel is really the wrong thing for a podcast. 

–Exactly how much is the Taco thing still a joke? They’ve kind of dropped the whole “inventing the taco” thing, made it clear that Lup isn’t short for Chalupa at all in any capacity, and Griffin made it clear that the dish Taako’s spent his whole life trying to imitate subconsciously is “not a taco” but some kind of open-faced sandwich with nutmeg-y stuff or whatever he described it as.

–If anything, blame Taco Bell and other Americanized fast food taco whatevers for turning tacos into such a meme-status food that Taako seemed like just a harmless joke in the first place. 


Blupjeans: 

–”Guys, don’t hate Blupjeans, either one can be bi or pan, it still falls under the LGBT umbrella” Um…guys, ok, so news flash, well-written straight couples can exist in shows with good diversity, ok. It’s not “The mcelroys are shitty for writing a straight couple….oh wait yeah one can be bi everything’s cool,” it’s “the mcelroys have written multiple well-done diverse romance stories in this DnD podcast, this being one of them.” 
Also, Lup is already fantastic representation in and of herself, especially with such a strong relationship that she has, and the fact that she’s written as a person rather than just checking something off an identity checklist for brownie points. 

–And on that note, I don’t think Griffin’s doing another Bury Your LGBT here! I really really really really feels like Griffin’s setting it up to bring Lup back. Really really really. Don’t call him out on killing off another LGBT character before she’s confirmed 100% Completely Dead. Remember we have the literal grim reaper on our side here. 

Con bits and bobs

Random stuff while I remember it.

Sue said that season five won’t get planned or written until Ben and Martin commit, and made an offhand comment like “when they’re less busy.” It sounded distant. Steven similarly said that he had no idea at all where the next season would go, and hadn’t thought about it yet. He’s busy with Dr. who now and might take a year off when that’s done.

Something about Mary…..first off, Amanda was supposed to be here but cancelled just a few days ago. Bummer. During my pic signing with Steven I asked him if he felt Mary redeemed herself at the end, or was she still morally dubious. This started a fairly long Mary defense, that she shot Sherlock nicely, that if Sherlock was ok with it why wouldn’t we be, that she had more to overcome in her past thus her moving toward to good had more meaning. He was QUITE QUITE serious, and all my Mary is evil hopes died a sad death. She DID ACTUALLY jump in front of that shot, Steven takes that absolutely for granted, so our pondering of bullet speeds etc. were all in vain. He’s still surprised some people don’t like Mary, and is rather defensive of her.

Klance Fic Recs: Completed Works

 I have spent an incredibly large chunk of my life reading Klance stories that I decided that I might as well start jotting them all down. Here we go, these are all completed long works, I’ll do recs for one shots/WIPs later.

of florists and tennis shoes  by  venpast

One of those pure AU with the pure headcanons that you can’t get enough of. It’s a flower shop AND a coffee shop AU so you can’t go wrong. It includes flower language which is one of my favorite things so that’s a plus. Keith works at the flower shop and Lance buys flowers to try to impress girls but turns out that the only person being wooed by flowers is him. The cutest thing ever, great story, great idea, just very great.  Rated T and 63,774

The Different Rules of Summer by themultifandomnerd 

This fic is the cutest thing in the world, it’s is a modern day AU where Keith and Lance are volunteers at a library and meet by talking about ghosts and aliens. In this fic, Keith is deaf and it is all written very well. It was my favorite thing to read because they updated everyday. This is fan-fiction gold right here. Interesting story, well-written, and has fluff galore. It’s a great read. Rated G and word count is 57,589

A Shove Towards Love  by General_Button

OooOOoo I love this one. This one is a bop for sure. It’s a (somewhat) soulmate AU so you know you already wanna read it. Basically some aliens think Lance and Keith totally should be together 5ever (same really) so they sorta like. Bind their souls. Anyway, some crazy stuff happens to them because of this so basically you just have to read it. Rated T, word count 30,955. 

time out of mind  by  aknightley

I loved reading this one. I’m a sucker for older, domestic klance and well here we are. Keith and Lance wake up one day and they are several years in the future. And married. Hilarity ensues. This fic is so read as we see all of Team Voltron older and how Keith and Lance react to it all. Also I love the writing style. An A+ fic in all. Rated T and 27, 849 word count

your claws in me by burlesquecomposer

This one is intense, angsty, and dark and it’s soooo good. Lance falls under control of a druid, which turns him dark and takes the rest of Team Voltron on crazy ride to try to contain him and get it back. If you like angst then here it is and it’s amazing. They write Dark!Lance so well, I swear you get hooked fast. Rated M for ya know. Mind control and violence and all around angst. Word count is 49,072

in stasis  by  ilgaksu

Another good angsty one with a super interesting concept. Lance’s body goes way out of commission, so he is programmed into the castle as an AI while he recovers. The writer does an awesome job working with an awesome idea and this fic is perfect in every way. It deals with a lot of topics regarding albeism and anxiety. A lot of langst, but with just the right about of humor to make any Lance-lover put this fic on the top of their list. Rated T and word count of 26,940

Spaghettification and Other Extreme Sports by SociopathicAngel

I might be slightly biased on this one. This fic takes place in a final battle with Zarkon, where he opens up a black hole like the jerk he is. Lance, ever the hero, sacrifices himself to save the group. However, in the blackhole, Lance is taken to a universe where things are similar, except for one or two or several important details. Especially how a certain Red Paladin treats him. It’s super intriguing the way things are set up in comparison of the two different universes. An amazing, well-written story and the writer is also awesome and fantastic and you should check out everything they have written and shower them with praise. Rated T, word count 17,980

Sealed by Fate  by  thejapanesemapletree

A fantasy fic where Lance is a selkie and Keith finds him and takes in him, this is one of those stories you just really want more of. I’m a sucker for anything that has to do with Lance and mermaids, this is a interesting spin on it all. Selkies are a really interesting branch of the whole water fae, and this was a really awesome read. Rated T and word counts stands at 25,973

Shameless Self Advertising but I happen to have a completed klance story as well. It’s called  Sand as Fuel and it’s rated T and has 20k words. It’s set some time the future where Shiro had never returned back to Earth. Lance, Hunk, and Pidge all graduated from the Garrison like they were supposed to. Everything was going smoothly until they crash while colliding into a mysterious ship and Lance somehow finds himself being dragged across the desert. 

Hope you find something you like! You can find any more of my fics at  somethingaboutamoose!!!
