Hello! So I was at a party tonight, and this woman told me this great story about how she met her husband. She was the PR person for the local university. He was the sports editor for the local paper. He kept getting the school's mascot wrong in articles, and she would have to call him every time to correct it, growing increasingly frustrated every time. This was one of those moments when all I could think was LARRY AU, LARRY AU.
oh my god, thank you so much for sending me this message! It just made me so happy and I love it. Like, I love these actually people you met and I love it as a larry au!!!!!!
I feel like it works both ways so well for larry that I can’t even really pick one. example:
Louis as the university PR person, grumbling to Niall about the mistake the first time it happens. Waving the sports sectionaround and stabbing a finger at the picture of their mascot at a basketball game. “What the fuck!!! look at this photo of Ferdinand!?!! Look at this caption!!! A hawk???? A hawk??” (they are the falcons) And then like, because in this version louis is immediately over-frustrated, instead of increasingly, he’d call up the paper in a big huff and then immediately be disarmed by Harry’s calm, deep voice and seal bark laugh once he finally got him on the phone. Then he’d flirt-email him a link to an article about the differences between Hawks and Falcons as soon as he got off the phone, thrilling at his own daring as he did it! And after like the sixth time Harry got it wrong, they would go on a date and after they got married they’d always collected both stuffed hawks and stuffed falcons.
oh my god how killer, because opposite way around, Harry the PR guy calling, he’d be immediately disarmed by Louis’s voice, too!! Like all flustered, and then like he’d get blushy when louis teased him, but also tease back. oh my god and then seven or eight calls in, Harry finally loses it and is like “you just don’t care about our sports teams because we’re not division one! Well, tough! you live in this city too, Louis, you should know our mascot is a turtledove by now god damn it!” and then louis would ask him out.
i’m just smiling a lot. like i can also imagine either of them as the sports editor, starting to get it wrong on purpose and feeling like “oh no, my journalistic integrity!” but also “i need to do this flirting very bad!!!!”
18.05.2016, stayed home and cleaned desk but didn’t study as much as id like and feeling extremely guilty 😢 exams revision is seriously stressing me out and i want to cry and i feel like my best friend and i are drifting and im so afraid of failing that it’s stopping me from achieving anything what am i doing 😩
(sorry about the rant guys, need a place to let it out)
❤️ motherfuckin’ bias list !okay so i’ve been writing church for exactly 16 days and 3 months now, and it’s been really tough to get him out there and find new writing partners since tumblr wants to hold us down and i can’t actually promo ( thanks for the pain , satan ) , so i thought the first big milestone would take longer to accumulate . but you guys have made this limited experience one of the nicest , most entertaining and encouraging rp endeavors i’ve ever undertaken . i really don’t know quite how to thank you all for writing with me , sticking with me , always having really kind shit to say , and just generally being the greatest . i’m slow and have a really hard time communicating ooc and in general people don’t tend to find it easy to write or interact with me , so the fact that you’ve all been so receptive really means a lot to me . you guys actually read the shit i post , and remember shit about my character , and idk if you realize how bright you’ve made the last 3 months for me . so just , thank you ( for making me a sappy fuck ) , and that goes out to the new followers , to the first people who wrote with me on this blog ( and the one before it ) , to all of you . this got so fuckinglong but there are silly graphics so i don’t want to put it under a read more and ruin the presentation , have fun scrolling , fam .
@w0lf1sh❤️ ok listen up i’ve said like 1 thing to you in an IM once and occasionally commented on something of yours on the dash but we’ve been writing together since my first blog , and then within two days of my creating church . you are one of THE easiest people to write with i’ve ever had the vast pleasure of roleplaying with ; your grasp of anton’s character ( the canon parts of him , as well as the terrific original additions you’ve made along the way ) continues to blow my mind daily . the sheer consistency and complex emotional profile you’ve built up for him just makes every little thread incredibly compelling and layered . there’s never a dull moment from you ( it’s probably not scientifically possible ) , and we’ve yet to actually wrap up any threads ( thank god , if i had it my way they’d never end ) , every single interaction we’ve written together has been more fun than i can say and usually a little heart rending or made me hysterically laugh ( or all of the above ) . every time i think i’ve fucked up a thread and you’re gonna get bored , ‘cus church is hella exhausting , you reply with something absolutely inimitable and engaging , and it’s been a long time for me since anyone in the rpc seemed genuinely interested in exploring a thread outside of what it might have began as, and our character’s dynamic in general , and not just the smooth sailing , convenient parts . like , without having a single preliminary ooc conversation about them , these two have managed to be the most developed relationship i have on this blog , because you’re so willing to just write with me and allow them to grow through ic interactions . you’re one of the few people who from the beginning would send me memes , and always continue a thread if i turned one of your responses into one , and i just hope you know that every single time i see you on the dash it makes me smile without exception ( and at least one time i think i punched the air because i didn’t expect you to reply when you did and that’s how excited i was . also every single headcanon post you write simultaneously gives me life and breaks my heart , so bless you for that please never stop ) . you’re a truly fantastic writer , with such a strong voice and thorough understanding of your material —– an ideal , attentive , and patient rp partner —– and just pretty much perfect all around , tbh . thank you so much for putting up with church’s ( excessive ) bullshit , it goes without saying that anton’s got a house - pet for life , and their delightfully complicated relationship warms my heart every single day , even when we’re not writing .
@overdove❤️the brohammad ali , the one and only . i don’t even know where to start , you are simply one of the sweetest , most supportive , creative people i’ve met in this community . firstly , those fuckin’ graphics tho , have you won any awards yet ? ‘cus you should have . but more importantly , i’ve followed you on so many accounts , and every single one has been awe inspiring . i’m pretty sure you’re not human , because no one person could write so many varying personalities and stories all at once while maintaining impeccable personalized narratives and an overwhelming amount of flawless background details . you’re truly the warmth of my indie experience , you’ve always had my back , and even your shitposts are completely essential to my dash . the way you write and conceptualize your characters , especially your OCs leaves me genuinely speechless , i’ve been trying to find the words to describe the exact brand of amazement mo’s internal monologues leaves me with ( a moment i always remember , being a response to lo , where you talked about her mother , and her youth , which just gave me this indescribable feeling of being passed down knowledge without actually knowing what precisely i learned , like having been there when it happened ) and i’ll keep trying in the future to explain in no uncertain terms how viscerally moving your work is , even though i’m still struggling with it . when you talk about music it makes my day , and when you told me graveyard whistling reminds you of church it kind of changed my year —– seriously because of you i’ve had it on repeat whenever i write for like a month . you have the effect of making me love things i already loved so much more than i thought i could .
church and mo’s relationship might be undetermined in a lot of ways but i’m still emo about them constantly , and i know when we do sit down and plot more it’s gonna Wreck me , so i’m looking forward to that agony . thank you so much for always being so enthusiastic about writing with me , and about my characters , you give some of the most overwhelmingly kind and specific compliments i’ve ever received , and i’ve saved them all tbh . just bless , ily .
@dyysnomia / @genkibat ❤️ if i still had the capability to cry you would make me weep with joy every single time i log on . lets start with how imaginative , thoughtful , and adaptable you are as a writer . every single one of your characters have been incredibly easy to plot with and despite their usually daunting , dangerous criminal lives and elaborate , visionary universes they hail from , you seamlessly imbue such apparent , translatable humanity into all of them , in moments you wouldn’t necessarily expect to have that revealed . i am struggling to make words happen about this right now ‘cus i’m still trying to define in my mind all of the things i freaking adore about you , so bear with me here . but you’re also always willing to come into my IMs and start conversations and ask questions , and you send memes hours after i post them , and you ask permission for anything that could require it and i could yell about how much all of this means to me , like for real , straight up , scream , for several minutes straight . you’re so considerate and forthright , and even though i’m impossibly quiet sometimes and take forever to message you back you’re always so chill about it and never let my slowness stop you from sending more IMs , and to explain how i feel about that just cue the grinch’s heart growing about twenty five sizes . all of our characters fit together unbelievably well , starting with harleen and jonah ( hopefully one day ! we’ll actually get to write them together ! lmao ) . i’m not sure how to put into words how deeply i appreciate and want to get to know all of your characters , i feel like i know just the tip of the iceberg about them , but am fully dedicated and prepared to over time learn as much as humanly possible about them as we write and interact with each other ? thank you so much for always being so accepting and genuine with me , always reaching out to me , and just always making me feel like what i bring to the table is significant and interesting . when i try to talk about church and joker’s relationship here i just wanna fuckin’ keyboard smash , i love them so much and the way they’re developing makes me really , really happy , to the point of a loss of words .
@splatteredfingers / @notyourgbf❤️ have i told you a million times already how you’re literally the first person i followed when i came back to indie , i didn’t even have my account ready or first character figured out before i had your url written down ‘cus i knew i had to have you on my dash . i feel like i tell you this like once every couple of weeks , lmao . but it’s so important to me because the very second i saw your url , and your promo in the tags , i instantly went ‘ !!!! ‘ inside , and i’m pretty sure i was in love before i finished reading your first side page —– and the feeling hasn’t faded for a millisecond . i didn’t think you could write another character i would love as much as i love derrick , and then you went and proved me wrong by making dax . your ability to craft your OCs backstories and the NPCs involved in them is really impressive , and for real can derrick or dax’s parents adopt me, lmk . it’s so hard for me to put into words just how obsessed i am with your muses and the way you write them , how true to life and multi - faceted they all are . when i first made my blog / s you were the ONLY one who would send me memes , and validate my needy ass when i reblogged ooc opinion memes , and i’ll never forget that , i’ll never forget how you’ve gone out of your way to make sure i knew someone was listening and cared that i was around . it could not be more fitting that in real life you’re seriously focusing on your writing because all of your work just emits this effortless , incisive air that of a professional . you can write a single line , and i feel like i’m curled up with a great book , completely transported . i trust you and the fact that you trust me too really means a lot . thank you for always being so good to me and being so god damn fun to write with . and btw you’re about 80 % the reason i miss writing jonah sometimes , because derrick and jd’s relationship was so fucking captivating and interesting to explore , your willingness to write with me and let the chips fall where they may has always made me appreciate both of our muses in new ways , and feel like there was no wrong way to write as long as i was being true to the character .
@stealsyou / @starstole ❤️you could disappear for 3 years and then come back out of nowhere like nothing happened ,
and besides having missed you like crazy , i’d still pick right up where we left off the second you came back , with wide open arms . every dynamic we create between any of our characters has been so invigorating and amusing , even fletcher with katie for the 12 seconds i wrote him made me so !!! you’re such a talented , easy - going writer and i could fight every last person who neglects you on your blogs because it’s really fucked up and you put so much energy into trying to make yourself and your schedule more palatable for others with little to no appreciation from them —– seriously it makes me so mad , you deserve way , way better , your muses are very well developed , you reach out to people constantly , there’s only so much you can do before it’s just their problem , y’know . your unique lore concerning eliza and her backstory is so well crafted with such breadth , and all of your verses are really interesting and easy to integrate into . and with katie , your love for star trek is so inspiring because i grew up on every different rendition around and i never really meet anyone from our generation who’s fond of any of the original series , so every time you talk about beverly crusher i just like , do that fist to heart and then point at my screen thing . does that make sense ? anyways , i can always trust that any thread we write together is going to be a blast , and i’m going to fall even more in love with your characters and the way you portray them . thank you so much for putting up with me for so long , even though half of my characters are really creepy at eliza , lmao , sorry . and , also thank you for giving church the title of map bitch , because wow , do i think about that a lot , it’s embedded in my mind forever and i love it .
@abeyantly ❤️ okay perry is such a terrific character ? and i can’t believe how little we’ve written together , we should have so many threads , though just the one is really great on its own and i can tell already it’s leading somewhere fantastic and fun and i’m such a sucker for a solid basis like this ( beginning with the beginning ) for a character dynamic . you’re so sweet and emboldening , and your interest in where these two’s relationship is going makes it really rewarding to write with you , just knowing that it’s really going somewhere and you’re invested so i don’t have to worry that the little things don’t matter to you , or you’re not that into it . perry feels like a canon character with how carefully constructed her origin story and quirks are , i think when i first followed you i just assumed you weren’t going to follow me back lmao ( or at least was surprised as hell if you followed me first , i can’t remember ) , i kind of forgot that until right now . you’re just such an immersive , original writer , and you make creating someone as believable and alive as perry seem utterly effortless . thank you so much for being unafraid to take an interest in church , for being so patient with me , and always having something adorable to talk about in IMs , it means a lot , and you’ve always made my dash a friendlier , more motivating place to be .
@darlinghearted ❤️ what !an angel !your url could not be more accurate . masika is one of the sweetest and most instantly lovable characters i’ve written with in a while , she has such strong equanimity and charm , and you can make the most mundane moments of every day life so enthralling because you have a firm grasp on your vision for her . she simultaneously gives off the impression of a real human being —– with undeviating dialogue and unwavering , meritorious personality —– and an easily rooted for protagonist to a novel i very much would like to read . we haven’t written very much together but everything we’ve done so far has been so wholesome and made church’s heart sing ; i think if someone so much as looked at masika wrong he’d add them to his future hit list . honestly i don’t know if there’s anything she could do to make him more adoring of her , just seeing her fills his soul with enormous happiness . thank you so much for always being so fun to interact with , for sending me messages , and for keeping my dash a really lovely place to be , with your and your wonderful OC’s presence .
❤️ we might not talk very much or even have interacted in character yet but regardless i adore your muse / s , hope to get to know you and your character / s better whenever the inspiration strikes us , and am so glad to have you around because you all make my dash a better , more interesting place!
So. Thinking out loud here, and bear with me, I’m having an epiphany. I know I said that I was taking a break from writing, and I am…. but I need something. Writing has become my way of relieving the stress in my life. Since I haven’t been able to sleep (because what asshole decided to not give our brains an off switch???), I’ve been going through and reading some of my early stuff… (like I’ve been writing forever)…. I decided that as much as I love Walnuts for what it is, my first fic (my swan dive off the deep end into this fucking rabbit hole), it makes me cringe. It needs revision. So. I’ve left the original as it is, but I’m going to update and play with the story and post it as new. This way, I don’t have the added stress of coming up with new material (like, seriously, other writers, do you stress the fuck out about writing but love it at the same time?), but I can still write. If you think I’m a lunatic, just let me know and I won’t tag you. If you are horrified because you adore the original so much, let me know and I will send you roses and chocolates. Ehehehehe :)
Wendy, what do you think of your Reverse Falls Counterpart?
“Ok, so like… I’m just gonna come right out and say it. Alternate Dimension Me seriously needs to lighten up. Like, I get being stressed out about school and family and whatever, but you don’t need to perfect at all those things like she things she does. Seriously, she’s so uptight about everything, to the point that she looks like she’s about to have a heart attack at the ripe old age of 15. It’s pretty hard to believe that she’s technically me, just from another universe, even though we look pretty much the same or whatever.”
(Yeah, see but that’s just the point of the Reverse AU, Wendy. Everything’s fucking backwards and opposite there its kinda the basis behind it lol)
Hey so this is going to be really short but I know how stressed everyone has been and I wanted to put something out. I made this for a letter I wrote to one of my followers, but I have changed it to fit the reader-insert style. I hope you don’t mind :)
LeafyIsHere Blurb - Everyday Stress
Can you just imagine coming home to Leafy, though? Like you could have had a long day at school, or work, and just the sound of his laughter would lighten your mood. He’d be in the middle of working on a new video and you would come in and set your stuff down. He’d call you over saying, “Oh my god, Y/N, you have to see this!” Excitement is evident in his tone. Walking over, he would notice that your excitement was missing.
Pulling you onto his lap, he’d wrap his arms around you and ask, “hey, how was school/work, everything okay?” Sighing, you would drop your shoulders and spill everything. He would simply hold you in his arms, only occasionally planting a brief kiss against your skin. After, you would thank him, letting out a small smile and brief laugh– just enough to let him know that you were okay now. He would simply smile back and say something like: “of course, any time for you, Y/N.” Smiling, you would plant a sweet kiss on his lips before saying, “okay, let’s see what’s so funny.” Not moving, you stay sitting there– laughing in his arms as all of your worries seem to melt away.
I hope you guys are having a nice night and aren’t too annoyed that this one is shorter (like seriously it’s short af). I’ve essentially stressed myself out to the point of getting myself sick lol, but hopefully tomorrow I will have time to write a longer one (since I shouldn’t have practice).
yesterday on our hike we ran into a very large, extremely unpleasant australian shepherd that had run so far ahead of its owners that my aunt and I had to deal with several minutes of it racing around barking at our dogs (who were futilely trying to get it to back off) and jumping up on us before the owners arrived, and then it took them a further five minutes to convice the dog to follow them down the path instead of continuing to harrass us, because they had zero vocal control over it.
In my opinion, there’s no excuse for this kind of irrisponsible behavior. if you can’t control your dog off leash, and certainly if you can’t be bothered to keep an eye on it, then you should not be letting it off leash in the first place. and seriously? your dog was so far ahead of you that it took you minutes tocatch up? what if I had an agressive dog and your dog came charging at us? what if there had been someone on horseback? with an out of control loose dog like that someone could be seriously hurt.
this encounter succeeded in stressing out both my aunt and I and our dogs, and has put me off the australian shepherd breed as a whole.
Okay but society is shaping its future generation to be full of thousands of degree-holding, debt-ridden young people that will all competing for increasingly limited job spots and that’s kinda a problemo
