merry's rambling

It’s the holidays and during the holidays you express your thanks and love for things that are important so

here’s a list of bug fics that make me physically stressed with their greatness, and to which I would like to say thank you.

It’s Miraculous Ladybug, just to clear any confusion.

This fandom is the first to drive me to actually read fanfic and B O I let me tell you, I have had a fantastic time. Anyway have a list of fics that I love very, very much, so much that I scream at my friends when they update and sometimes stop reading in the middle of chapters because I don’t want them to end.

Wow this post is much, much longer than I expected it to be but that’s okay I really needed to say thank you to these amazing writers for these fics. They’re all so fantastic.

May everyone have a Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!!!

Please bear in mind that I have literally 40+ tabs open on my phone of unread fics, as well as a bunch of bookmarks, many of which include The Big Ones so if there’re some missing that you think should be on here, that’s the dealio.

draco is the kind of person that likes to sleep in and snuggle deeper into the sheets when the morning sun peeks through the windows
harry is the kind of person that has never been able to sleep for too long and as such, while he enjoys not having to get up in the morning, usually wakes way before his partner does
sometimes he just lies in bed and looks at him, reads a book or does some paperwork and sometimes he gets up and has an early brekfast or walks their dog
and that domesticity is fucking sugary
but i also like to imagine them as elderly people

harry still doesn’t sleep much
but now draco has to get up early too because of his damn bladder and he is the grumpiest old man there ever was simply because he wants to sleep but can’t.
and that is just hilarious.

jane austen was so lit because she wrote about men the way men typically write about women i.e. her stories just centered around women and men were only there for the sake of women, and her books could have been all bitter and sad about the state of women in that century, but instead they’re sweet honest observational stories of friendship, family and love *sighs* what a lady i am sorry i ever doubted you cos I was bored in high school

Criminals of the FAHC’s caliber hardly need tangible christmas presents - when you spend all year taking whatever you want whenever you want it the idea of requesting something then patiently waiting around to see if someone else steals it for you seems utterly laughable. That said, the Fake’s have their own take on Kris Kringle; they all draw a name out of a box, and on Christmas they deliver that person a head.

Not always a literal head mind, they aren’t actually all bloodthirsty enough to want to deal with decapitated parts, and Geoff swears he’s going to kill the next person who leaves corpses around the penthouse, but vengeance on a platter is the name of the game.

It might come in the form of the bank details of a sworn enemy, or the keys to their shiny prize car. It might be the disappearance of a problem or the unwilling reapperace of someone who owed a debt, might be the news that that one annoying gang has been run out of the city or a video presentation of CCTV footage displaying the moment a particularly aggravating detective got his comeuppance. It all depends on who is doing the giving; the more technically inclined go for digital displays, the smooth-talkers cheat and swindle, the bruisers break, maim and murder and Geoff overcompensates.

There are many strengths in the greater FAHC but they are all, to a fault, showboaters of the highest order and the Christmas bonanza is their biggest chance to show off. The Kris Kringle was born as a way to give gifts their crewmates would actually enjoy but over the years it has devolved, like most anything the Fake’s are involved with, into a glorified pissing contest. A talent show as much as an exchange of gifts, everyone competing to come up with the best present of the year, the most impressive undertaking, the most appreciative recipient.

For citizens of Los Santos the period running up to Christmas is basically a hellscape, members of the FAHC running around on a a dozen different completely bizarre missions, serious and driven in a way that comes only with fierce competition. For any enemies of the crew the period running up to Christmas is more or less open season, the possibility of attack as high as it is unpredictable, standard revenge tactics abandoned in favour of elaborate plans and ingenious traps. For the FAHC the period running up to Christmas is the most high stress, hectic, entertaining internal arms race of the year, rife with secrets, subterfuge, red herrings and, invariably, at least one headless corpse.

WHY JANE THE VIRGIN MAKES ME HAPPY:

  • NEARLY ALL THE MAIN CAST ARE LATINA/POC AND/OR WOMEN
  • THE FAMILY DYNAMIC BETWEEN THE  VILLANUEVA WOMEN IS SO SUPPORTIVE AND STRONG AND CUTE AND WARM
  • THE NARRATOR IS HILARIOUS AND WOKE AF (”OCCUPATION: WHITE PRIVILEGE”)
  • DEALS WITH ISSUES OF IMMIGRANTS AND WHITE WASHING
  • GINA RODRIGUEZ 
  • SINCE THE MAIN THEME OF THE SHOW IS ABSTINENCE, ALL ROMANTIC RELATIONSHIPS FOCUS MORE ON EMOTION AND DYNAMIC
  • THE WOMEN DRIVE THE PLOT AND ARE NEVER BELITTLED OR OBJECTIFIED 
  • THE SHOW DEALS WITH REAL ISSUES OF RELIGION AND FAITH AND PREGNANCY AND PREJUDICE AGAINST NEW MOTHERS
  • GINA RODRIGUEZ 
  • ALL THE CHARACTERS ARE MULTIDIMENSIONAL AND SUPPORTIVE LIKE THERE IS NO TOXIC MASCULLINITY 
  • THE PRODUCTION DESIGN IS COLORFUL AND BRIGHT
  • IT’S JUST SUCH A HAPPY NICE SHOW OKAY I LOVE IT SO MUCH
!!Christmas Joy!!

Bring joy to the world is the thing to do!


But the world does not revolve around YOU!


Don’t be a jerk!


It’s Christmas!!!

This is probably my favorite line through out the Whole song, because there are some people out there who thinks that everything is and should be about them. They try to drag attention to themselves. No hate, I promise, but trust me, I know a lot of those people irl who think that its always will be about them, and that they think that they deserve all of the attention.

 But guess what?? It’s about EVERYONE. It’s about bringing joy to those you love and care about. It’s not about receiving-it’s about giving. Make sure to always drop by and say hello to someone you truly care about, and you haven’t talked to!! It would definitely brighten up their day! Go out to your community and donate!!! I’m donating my dresses and toys to kids who live out of the U.S. If you have a pair of clothes that just don’t fit, or toys that are abandoned, give them to a child in need!

And please remember, even if things seem so dark and lonely, there will always be someone out there who will care about you. And please do not think that you are weak! You have gotten through so much, and look at you!! Still here and alive and breathing! I’m proud.

You have so much to live for! You have a bright future ahead of you! Please do not give up! I know there are still a few bumps on the road ahead of us. I know that 2016 has not been a very good year for us, but trust me, things will get better. This upcoming year will most likely be the year of healing, the year of recovery. And I know you can do it.

And remember, you are not alone!!! We are all by your side. If you need to vent, VENT! It’s healthy to vent every now and then. It is also better than keeping it all inside and bottling it all up, until you one day erupt with emotion.

I hope you all have a wonderful and magical Christmas filled with exotic butters and joy~

And a extraordinary and fantastic New Year!!!





I love you guys!!

Merry Christmas

Tord didn’t know much about Christmas, since his ‘real’ family hadn’t allowed him to celebrate it and all of his other foster families had never kept him long enough to celebrate it with him, making 2016 his first ever Christmas, and with his dads.
He recognised most of the things Patryck had set up, baubles and tinsel on the tree, a wreath on the front door and a string of L.E.D lights around the telly, but there was also a small, green plant hanging in the doorway from the living room to the kitchen that he couldn’t place the name of.
He hadn’t even noticed it at first, but then Patryck caught Paul in the doorway and slyly pointed up to the plant, Tord turned away to dramatically gag as they kissed but secretly thought it was sweet and giggled behind his hands.
“Don’t think you’re getting out of a kiss too, Tordy pop.” Patryck scooped him up into his arms and pressed sloppy kisses all over his cheeks and nose, Tord could smell cheap lager on his breath but it didn’t bother him like it used to, Patryck was just a festive drinker.
“Papa no!” He cried and held his arms out to Paul, hoping he’d save him from being assaulted with kisses.
Paul took him and instead began nuzzling his scratchy beard on him.
“Noooo!” He laughed harder and Patryck did too as he watched his two favourite boys.
“’s what happens when you get caught under the mistletoe, my little candy cane.” Patryck slurred and stumbled a little and Paul took away his glass of lager and replaced it with himself, letting Patryck’s arms wrap around his torso and envelop him in a tight, warm hug.
“Merry Christmas, Tord.” Paul smiled.
“Merry Christmas, daddy!” Tord smiled back.
“Yeah, m'rry crimble.” Patryck pet his hair, and Tord let himself curl up into Paul’s chest, he didn’t have to worry about not being happy again.

@imagining-eddsworld bc ily and crimble

merry christmas everyone, i know the holidays are a struggle for some but i hope you find happiness during the festive season and i hope your hearts are warm and soft and full of love. make yourself a nice cup of hot chocolate, cuddle up by the fireplace, hug your dog or your cat, watch a nice video, hang up some fairy lights, do something that makes you happy. you all deserve happiness and you all deserve to have a wonderful christmas day

  • you: mary's death is important!!! it is important so sherlock stops being arrogant!! and it is important the show has conflict!!! john and sherlock need conflict or the show is stagnant!!!!
  • me, an intellectual: in episode 5.8 of elementary, Jonny Lee Miller's Sherlock Holmes decides that he is far too clever to continue attending recovery meetings. Joan "played by Lucy Lui whose character is not a cheating hypocritical white male" Watson points out to Sherlock that addicts who continue going to meetings maintain their recovery better than those who don't. After some crime solving and self reflection, Sherlock takes Joan's advice and returns to regularly attending meetings wherein he acknowledges his arrogance and starts on the path of unlearning his arrogance. This happens as a result of mutual honesty and respect between him and his best friend/equal partner Joan "played by Lucy Lui whose character is not a cheating hypocritical white male" Watson and Sherlock's disposition for self-reflection and the best part??????? No women were killed to make male characters more interesting because Elementary is not written by misogynistic wankers who openly admit to not reading valid critiques of their show, but is written by decent humans that care about their audience AND the sensitivity of their content.
  • P.S. If you are anti!elementary, or a tjlc person pretending your fetishistic misogyny is lgbt representation, this post is not for you so please kindly don't interact with it.
Taming The Brat Pt.10

As always I’m a nervous wreck posting this, but what can you do? I’d be surprised if anyone’s even still interested, it’s been so stupidly long since the last time I posted. Fingers crossed it doesn’t disappoint if you are. Also this is another long one, so I apologise in advance if this crashes the app. It’s a problem my scenarios seem to have. Anyways, my rambling aside MERRY CHRISTMAS, Y'ALL (unless of course you don’t celebrate it, in which case, HAPPY SUNDAY!! ^^) I hope you all have an amazing day, filled with endless love and good times ♡

If you’d asked me as a child what I thought the concept of normal was supposed to entail, I think the life I would’ve envisioned for myself back then would have been very different to the one I’m living now. The only silver lining I can find is the realisation my best friend is very much right about me, I’ve never much liked the mundane anyway. It was never something I strove for, I just wanted happiness. I suppose I can say I’m at least halfway there, but at the same time, it’s hard to think with such a positive outlook considering the details. I wouldn’t go so far as to sum them up as small, but awkward and misfortunate works pretty bloody well. Especially now.
