Fellow members of the autistic community

I’m at my local library and they’ve made a display for autism awareness month. This is a well meant effort, but… 

As you can see, they’ve gone with the “autism speaks” motif. This is somewhat distressing for me, especially since I usually come here to de-stress. I’m going to write a letter for the library about why this is offensive to me as an autistic person, but I don’t want them to think it’s just me wigging out about it, so if you all would be so kind I’d appreciate it if you could reblog this post and add your own thoughts on autism speaks and the symbols of their organisation. I’m going to print off as many responses as I can and hand them over to the library along with the letter. 

Thanks so much for your time, and I hope you all have a good autism awareness month

"i could do a whole Analysis on the hug i just,, really love it so much" Do it. I just love, love your metas/analysis and I'd love to see you talking about the hug <'3

ahhh thanks!! Ok, full sheith hug analysis, sure thing! 

So, the way this all starts. A lot of people will say the handshake somehow makes the hug merely casual and downplays the intimacy of it, but I don’t think that’s the case at all. See, this part is really important because it’s completely different from every other hug we’ve seen with Keith. If you look at any other case, Keith never initiates. Someone else grabs him, and he has no consent or choice in it. Despite the fact that he eventually relaxes and hugs back, everyone else still just assumes the forced contact is fine, and you can see how startled and tense Keith is:

Akaashi and Kenma from @shions-heart‘s fic Second Chances!!

I hope everyone is having a good break!

Do I hate asking people to review at the end of my chapters? Yes. I despise it. It makes me feel needy, whiny, ungrateful for the readers I have. 

Do I hate asking people to reblog instead of just liking? Yeah. It makes me feel like I’m forcing them to do it through a guilt trip. 

But here’s the thing. 

I consider myself a fairly well known author in certain fandoms. This isn’t me bragging, this is me looking at the number of readers I have on Fanfiction and AO3, the fact that I get requests in my inbox, and the fact that I’ve been mentioned in a couple different fic rec posts, and deducing that I’m a somewhat popular author. 

My most popular fanfiction I have posted on Tumblr has just over 800 notes. Only 18 of which are reblogs. Only 6 of which have comments or tags on them. 

The most popular piece of fanart (in this case, meaning a single piece of artwork, not a comic or series of drawings) that I’ve ever seen had over 100,000 notes. At least a quarter of them were reblogs, and every single reblog that I saw of it had comments in the tags. 

So I’m not going to stop asking for people to reblog. For people to leave comments in the tags. For people to leave comments on AO3 and Fanfiction. 

Because fanfiction writers are treated like pack mules and, for the most part, artists are treated like gods. Artists can get PAID for their fanart, and we get yelled at for not posting the next chapter of a 10K story within two days of the latest update.

And I’m kind of sick of it. And I know for a fact that I’m not the only one. 

If you have the ability to like it, you have the ability to reblog it and leave a three word comment in the tags. It’s not difficult. 

Raen appreciation post

It came up on my dash that Raens have become underappreciated. And that makes me sad to hear, I love Xaela just as much as Raen! 

Reblog with screenshots of your Raens and what you love about them! 

Seeing as I have no Raen myself… I’m going to show off @neoma-eltanin ‘s lovely Raens instead!

Neoma Eltanin is simply the sweetest thing and just as pure as her white scales! (And my Xaela boys all swoon over her~)

Cyrus Eltanin, Neoma’s brother, is your typical overprotective big brother! A samurai and guardian of his village, a real grump though but I love that trait! (And I got Xaela boys swooning over him too~)

One more reason why I love David Tennant

DT appreciation week, day 7:
One more reason why I love David Tennant 

I’ve decided not to use the themes of the day, but to write some of my own ramblings. Hope it’s okay and that it can still be used in DT appreciation week :-)

Like most of the people that I socialise with in here, I find David Tennant extremely attractive, handsome and sexy. But lately I’ve been thinking a lot about David’s humbleness about the way he looks, and I feel that there might be more to it. So here are some thoughts:

Yes - David is a humble man when it comes to his own looks. He’s said several times that he doesn’t look at himself as sexy or handsome and this is because of his upbringing. I believe him when he says this.


However, I do think that he’s quite confident and happy about his looks. Just look at the way he dresses - he DOES care about how he looks. I think that it’s the very idea about someone deciding and setting the bar on what beauty is, who’s sexy and handsome - and who’s not - that he finds repulsing.

We also have to remember that David’s also a father and I think that he wants to teach his children to be confident in themselves based on their personalities and not on their looks (although, I can imagine David’s children being gorgeous!)

I’ve also read in an older interview (from 2005, I think), that he doesn’t care about how a woman look like - he gets attracted to talent and personality. On Saturday Night Takeaway last year, this was his comments on a clip with Jennifer Lawrence, who had just been voted “most beautiful woman alive”:

As you can see, David’s all: “Meh, I’d rather want the food that she ate!” Later on the show, David fanboyed over a chubby, though very beautiful singer, Joane Stewart. In my world, he’s sending a very clear message here: It doesn’t matter how you look - if you’re a nice person and does what you love to do, I’d rather hang out with you than this mainstream actress*.

So, my conclusion is that David is a very humble person, but that he also has some rather strong opinions and is critical about the mainstream tendencies of our society. David is a truly good human and he wants all of us to feel good about ourselves, even though we might not live up to society’s views on beauty or sexiness or whatever.

* please note that I have nothing against Jennifer Lawrence - I just use this as an example to prove my point.

@thetourguidebarbiefuture canon au + klaus obviously has his hands dipped in a lot of supernatural stuff probably owns some shady bars and bookshops and possibly a supernatural sex club somewhere that caroline discovers

Also for @ultimaflordolacio (yes, I’m still writing your prompt) and @goldcaught

Caroline felt his presence before she saw him – the feeling of those piercing eyes on her making her skin burn, a shiver running down her spine and arousal coiling in her lower belly.

It was the best aphrodisiac to know that he was watching her every move as she breathed in the sweet smell of sex, sweat and blood, as the beat of the music pulsed through her like it was her own heartbeat.

She hated how much of an effort it took not to look flustered, how she had to fight not to blush at the thought of how he was probably taking in all the skin she had on display, that hungry look she knew all too well certainly on his face.

But her imagination did not compare to having him stand in front of her, his eyes glazing as they looked her up and down, a smirk on his face as he silently promised to make each one of her sinful dreams come true.

“Hello, sweetheart,” Klaus greeted her with a kiss on the cheek, his hand on her upper arm – the innocent gesture felt anything but.

“Hi,” she said a little breathlessly as she too admired him, though he wore his usual Henley and jeans. Not exactly the proper attire for these occasions. “How did you get away from wearing a costume?”

It was a ridiculous question, really. Caroline knew that no one would ever be able to make Klaus Mikaelson do anything he didn’t want to do, but it still caught her by surprise seeing how casually dressed he was. Especially when she was wearing a more indecent version of a cheerleader costume – a red V-neck crop top with a matching mini-skirt and white over the knee stockings, thighs, torso and cleavage mostly exposed, her hair in a high ponytail.

He looked exactly the same as he did when they met back in Mystic Falls, when she was an actual cheerleader… Well, they were in a Back to School party and they were really embracing the theme.

“One of the perks of owning this place is that I do not have to abide by the dress code.” Caroline snorted, because of course he would be the owner of the most famous supernatural dungeon in the world. When she just shook her head in response, he continued, “Another perk is that I know this place better than most. Would you like a tour?”

She took his arm, knowing that his offer involved much more than just a tour – loving that his offer involved much more than that.

Thank you!

So, it’s that time again!

I originally intended to wait longer with my next post like this, but then again I’d only have waited because I would want to avoid having to face my shyness by doing this here. So, instead of waiting, I decided to go ahead with this number.

I have reached another number, that will be mentioned once but only below the cut for those that don’t like people talking about their amount of followers.

This is incredibly hard for me, but I had big plans for my next post and I intend to stick to those plans. It will get very long below the cut, so be warned when you click.

Short version:

Thank you all for following me and thus being interested in my Star and/or my writing!

About Ye Xiu

In the novel he has greasy hair, smelly clothes, pasty skin and even has a little chub. Basically, everything about his appearance screams that he’s any old bum that you’d meet on the streets.

What’s funny is that, despite all this, the QZGS fandom is thirsty for him anyway…

Is it his personality? No, but this is Ye Xiu we’re talking about, the walking definition of shameless. He’s rude to everyone he meets and never holds back when it comes to draining other people’s resources. He’s incredibly arrogant too. How is this… attractive?

What a mystery.

What are your thoughts?

Yoonseok - Sope

Just some of my favourite Yoonseok or Sope moments. I say some because 1. There’s so many moments out there that I can’t possibly put them all into one post and 2. I can’t find a lot because when I search up “J-Hope twerking on Suga”  “Yoonseok Moments” or stuff like that, Google doesn’t find any of the pictures or gifs I wanted ):

Huehuehue anyways let’s just get started.
