my friend is amazing i love her

Human Coloring Book

Notes: This is a fic in which I combine my love for Dad!Killian with my love for tattooed Killian. I refuse to believe that man only has one tattoo on his person. He’s probably not as tatted as I made him in this, but whatever. As always, I have to thank my good friend @welllpthisishappening (if you’re not following her, there is something wrong with you because she is fantastic and she makes ridiculously long but amazing fics that will make you forget that the outside world exists and when they end, you weep because it was so good and you want more.) for listening and giving me feedback on my work. She’s the best. All mistakes are mine because I don’t have a beta and I am trash. You can also read it here on AO3: [LINK]
Summary: Killian Jones is covered in tattoos, including an impressive outline of a full sleeve on his blunted arm. Emma thinks he should get it colored. Killian gets it colored in a rather unconventional way.

Emma nearly gasped the first time she stripped him bare and saw what was underneath all the leather. Nothing had prepared her for the magnificent artwork that lay undiscovered, hidden under numerous layers of black clothing. Killian Jones was covered from head to toe in ink. She had always assumed that he had a few tattoos aside from the heart and dagger that bore another woman’s name, but what she discovered was an entirely different level.

There wasn’t much work on his torso, but there was a tiny, tiny black swan on the far end of his collarbone and it became Emma’s favorite thing to kiss. It was a tribute to her, something that he had gotten while Emma and Henry were in New York. He had taken his vow to remember her everyday seriously and had marred his skin with his promise.

A pair of coordinates with an old fashion looking sextant took up the majority of the space on his left ribcage. It was one of the older looking tattoos on his body, the ink starting to blur a bit with age. Emma knew the moment she saw it that it was another memorial wrought on skin. It was for Liam and Emma sometimes caught him tracing it with a pensive look on his face in the dark quiet moments of the night, particularly on the hard days where one of them almost didn’t make it home.

wearetakingthehobbitstogallifrey  asked:

Your opinion on Nutella, Nancy Wheeler, Prince Kit, and Kylo Ren's crushed mask :D

Monica!! Always coming through with amazing and pertinent questions. <3

Nutella: I am mostly neutral on nutella, sometimes tipping over into ‘this is amazing I need more of it’. Personally, I think peanut butter is better. :D

Nancy Wheeler: My pony-tailed monster-hunting daughter!! I love Nancy! She’s relatable at the beginning- selfish, hormone-driven, drawn to the bad boy, and relishing in her new-found popularity so completely that she’ll ditch her best friend at a party. (That’s pretty low, but hormones!! + teenage rebellion + an intoxicating crush are not a great combination!) 

But she’s amazing at the end. I love that she doesn’t stay where she is. She grows and changes and really steps it up, and the way she does it is so beautiful too because it sort of reminds you that growing up (becoming better) isn’t about becoming a completely new person. It’s about letting yourself be the best version of yourself. Immaturity is bad not because being young (or innocent or naive or clueless) is a bad thing, but because it inhibits your actual true potential for virtue. Over the course of the show, Nancy’s curiosity, determination, bravery, and heart are all brought into relief by the circumstances around her, but you get the sense they were there inside of her all along. She changes because she rises to the occasion and, in doing so, rises above her own selfishness. Also she and Jonathan are so freaking beautiful I cannot!! That show nailed teenage angst!

Prince Kit: AHHHHH I FEEL SO SPOILED WITH THESE TOPICS. Okay so, to everyone’s enormous surprise, I know, I love prince Kit. LOVE him. If I met him in real life I would strongly consider marrying him. (If he asked me/noticed me at the ball, of course. I wouldn’t hold him captive to my will). His whole first scene with Ella is so special because it tells you so much about him as a person. His first impulse is to make sure Ella’s okay, for goodness’ sake! His protective (see: kingly) streak is strong but he’s not a jerk about it. He’s open and interested in Ella so you know he’s not selfish and that he definitely keeps his ego in check- which, you know, he’s a prince so not that easy!- and when she doesn’t know who he is he isn’t annoyed, he’s just genuinely DELIGHTED. And then my favorite part about him, and one of my favorite moments in the whole movie, is when Ella responds to his question about how they treat her by saying “They treat me as well as they are able” and he a) sees her sadness and b) immediately APOLOGIZES. He doesn’t even know her!!! And here he is!! Apologizing!! And she’s like ‘why are you doing that it’s not your fault’ and he just LEANS FORWARD AND SAYS ‘NOR YOURS EITHER I’LL BET’ AND I JUST I CAN’T. It’s so instinctive, his sympathy for this relative stranger is so clear?? and so immediate?? and so beautiful?!!!! But also not delivered in a way that makes her uncomfortable by demanding information from her or any condemnation of those who have hurt her and also he’s completely right so you know what good instincts he has about people and THEN AND THEN right when it would be understandable for Ella to let down her guard to him and share a little bit of her burden with him (because he’s kind and attentive and he’s actually listening to her and noticing her pain), right when you think she’s going to try to ease her pain by sharing it with a sympathetic person, SHE DOESN’T DO THAT SHE TAKES THE WHOLE THING TO THE NEXT LEVEL because what she shows him isn’t her pain it’s her values!! It’s the thing closest to her heart in all the world, what she tries to live by every day, the thing that helps her bear the pain, her mother’s words: Have courage and be kind. And she’s so vulnerable and sincere and THEN HE FALLS IN LOVE WITH HER RIGHT THERE. And I just I love it so much!!!! Because it’s about Ella!!! But it’s also about Kit!!! It’s about the kind of person that he is!! It’s like @byjoveimbeinghumble said so beautifully once, Ella doesn’t create virtue or goodness in Kit, she draws both out in him by her own virtue. And that moment, the way he responds to her bravery and vulnerability says so much about him. Because it isn’t just that he doesn’t withdraw or misunderstand or mock her for it. It’s that his response is to love her instantly, immediately, completely. That’s the moment when it’s over for him because he’s seen her goodness and his response is just. it’s love!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! IT’S LOVE !!!!! THIS IS WHO HE IS !!!! He doesn’t hesitate or look twice!! He’s completely certain that here, in her, he has found everything he has ever looked for his whole life and that certainty informs the rest of his choices for the rest of the movie. And it’s such a beautiful certainty, completely free from fear or selfishness (this isn’t about him??) and full of bravery and kindness. There’s more (so much more) but I think I have to stop because a) I might cry and b) this is really long!! Tldr: I love him. He is good and wonderful without ever coming across as goody or holier-than-thou. He’s manly without being macho or a brute. He’s generous and kind, direct, gentle, and funny without ever being mean. Mostly he’s loving in the truest sense of the word. It’s so present in him that when he sees the woman he loves at the ball he has tears in his eyes simply because he knows and understands her goodness and how lucky he is just to be in her presence. *sobs*

Kylo Ren’s crushed mask: Completely switching topics here! :D I MEAN WHO KNOWS WHAT’S GOING ON but what I hope and think it means is that the breaking apart of kylo ren as become and by that I mean kylo ren as distinct from ben solo, kylo ren as persona, kylo ren as performance. If redemption is going to happen for him kylo needs to be broken. And to start with the trappings of his persona being smashed and especially the mask which covers the face beneath- well, let’s just say I’m excited and hopeful.

Supernatural survey

I was tagged by the amazing @jpadjackles and the wonderful @lipstickandwhiskey (who are one of the most beautiful pair of friends this world has ever seen).Thank you both for tagging me, this might be my favorite tag game ever!

1. What season did you start watching Supernatural? Season 11-ish. My best friend kept telling me how much she loves that guy called “Dean” and how I needed to check this show out. So, I liked some Supernatural pages on FB to keep up with her and well… We all know how that worked for me…

2. Who was the first character you fell in love with? 

Originally posted by miriastar

This cutie pie right here. He had me at “Easy tiger” and now he’s got me for the rest of my life. (I’m such a sap, I know. To my defense, I’m being a sap for Dean Winchester.)

3. Who was a character that you hated at first but grew to love? I didn’t love them but I really liked The Ghostfacers. I used to hate them but they were also funny and I loved how Dean and Sam always kind of showed them who the real hunters were.

I’m not a big one on—I don’t know what to call it—getting all glamorous. I don’t really worry about my looks, and I don’t worry about getting old. Exterior beauty doesn’t mean a lot to me. I mean, sure I like to look nice—sometimes. This is going to contradict all the pictures with the interview, because I’m very glammed out. I’m a total hypocrite.

🐉 Hanzo time 🐉

Collab I enjoyed working along with my great friend and great artist @marscarat ❤✨

She will be at Marseille Chanot, at the Japan Expo on France this weekend (24th to 26th February, 2017), and she will be selling A3 prints of this Hanzo and more Overtwatch and original prints at the fanzine/merchan stands.

If you are going to the Marseille Japan Expo, go and say hello to @marscarat and give her all your love 💕

i’d be lying if i said
you make me speechless
the truth is you make my
tongue so weak it forgets
what language to speak in.

What was it like working with her (Alycia Debnam Carey)?

“It was amazing. Oh my God. I love her. I just saw her the other day – she’s in L.A. at the moment, so we’ve been catching up and having coffees… she’s become one of my closest friends.” - Eliza Taylor (2016)

”Trying to see her (Eliza Taylor) in the madness of my L.A. trip, but yeah, she’s great. I worked with her the most out of everyone on the show, so we definitely got close.” - Alycia Debnam Carey (2016)
During Jack and Bitty’s 2nd summer together...

So Jack is in Georgia for a couple of days, right, and he comes back from a morning run to find both Bittle parents in the kitchen eating breakfast (Bitty slowly dragging is ass out of bed, he can hear the bathroom upstairs). 

Suzanne greets him with a smile, Coach with a nod, Jack sits down to eat. Usually, there’s a fair amount of chatter- even without Bitty- because Jack is comfortable with both parents, but now they’re eating in silence. Throwing furtive glances at Jack. At each other. At Jack again.

Jack’s stars feeling the tingle in his fingers that announces his anxiety. He counts the seconds until Bitty leaves the bathroom- no, that was the sound of the shower. Alright then.

Suzanne places her mug back on the table.

- Jack, sweetheart, we need to talk to you.

Coach takes a sip of coffee and sits back straight.

- …Alright? says Jack.

- We’ve seen the way you look at Junior, says Coach in a matter-of-fact voice.

Hi! My name is Cody and here’s my story - my person died and I ended up at the city shelter at the age of 17.

I was adopted out from the city shelter, but it wasn’t working out with the resident kitty. Fortunately my adopter knew about the amazing friends at @givemesheltersf in San Francisco, and they not only took me, they asked YOU to help me!

Can you share me so I can find a home that will keep me the rest of my life? I’m a lovable, sweet boy and I promise to give you lots of love in return if you take care of me.

Here are some things my foster mom says about me:

- I’m easy going
- I LOVE to lie next to my foster mom and sleep by her head
- I LOVE to eat and have a great appetite
- I’m a sweet companion
-I LOVE to have my head rubbed

One more thing you should know about me - I take a twice-daily medication for hyperthyroidsim. Good news, I take it in my food and it’s quite economical. Please give me a chance!

To meet me or find out more, email

Not near San Francisco? A reblog is worth my best head-bump! 🐾💕

Love, Cody

Feels Like Coming Home

I can’t even quite put into words how excited I am to be sharing this with you. 

This story has been a while in the making, but really took off a couple of months ago, and has consumed me. I only hope I’ve done it justice.

There are so many people I have to thank. My writing group chat has been so supportive, screaming with me (and occasionally at me) as I churned this thing out, and it made all the difference. I have to thank a few people in particular: my darling @littlebabyruth for her ongoing support and enthusiasm, not to mention her psych-picking; my wonderful @annie-pie for her med picking and support and encouragement; the always-lovely @nottooldforthisship for her enthusiasm and the amazing edit she made. And the biggest most amazing thanks go to my sweetie @realitybetterthanfiction for her beta work and support. This also brought me a new friend, daysundercover and I am so thankful to have gotten to know her better, not to mention I’m so grateful for her impromptu beta work!! 

And without further ado:

The last thing Harry Styles expects when he’s hanging out at the Someday Cafe in Somerville one rainy October day is for his ex, Louis Tomlinson to walk through the door, but that’s exactly what happens. After a spectacularly ugly break-up three years prior, Harry hasn’t heard one word from Louis, and he’s moved on. Gotten over him. But having Louis back in his life, not to mention working at the restaurant where he’s a chef, isn’t easy, and the feelings that Harry thought he’d left turn out to be not so easily forgotten.

This is a story about love and the power of forgiveness, and how the hard choices we make define us, and change our lives.

[From Chyler Leigh]

About a year ago I was swimming with my kids in our pool and noticed Anni (my now 7 year old) staring at me as I toweled off. She had a puzzled look about her as she approached me, wrinkling her nose. She reached her hand out and ran her fingers across the side of my waist and asked where I got all my stripes. The question kind of caught me a little off guard. I had almost forgotten they were there. But her eyes were so honest and her question sincere that I took the opportunity to explain.

I told her they’re stretch marks and that lot of Mommies get them when they’re pregnant because as the baby grows, the Mommy’s tummy and hips grow, too.

I think her little radar went off and she could sense a flash of my momentary insecurity. What she said next was magical. She reached out and touched all the stretch marks and said to me…

She paushes for a moment and I return the question.
I asked.
And with that, she hugged me tight and jumped back into the pool.

That brief exchange still resonates with me. I forget sometimes how important it is to take a moment to check myself, for clarity’s sake. It’s so easy for me to get hung up on my selfdiagnosed negatives. And here’s my little girl who loves me, all of me, unconditionally, telling me I’m beautiful just the way I am.

This is the message I missed out on as a child. I started modeling at 12 years old. Not something that my younger self wanted but rather, something my mother wanted me to do. In my case, the majority of comments I received about my appearance were filled with criticism, not acceptance. So, I’ve grown up in a world of approval seeking for a very long time. There were countless times I stood in line for hours waiting for my turn with casting agents only to be stared at, told to spin around, and spoken out loud about, saying I wasn’t thin enough, pretty enough, tall enough, this enough or that enough. Play that on repeat in your mind at such a young age and you absolutely begin to believe it for yourself.

I felt uncomfortable and ashamed about my body. I didn’t like who I was, especially in those few awkward years around 12. So in an effort to remedy the issue, my mother gave me fat burning pills. Perhaps in her own mind, she felt like this was going to help me gain back my self esteem by looking how I was “supposed to”, but after a few weeks of taking this supplement with no success, I felt it was taking too long and the pressure to be perfect was overwhelming. So one morning, I tried to take more than recommended and was nearly sent to the hospital.

Pressure for women to look a certain way, to be somebody else is undeniable. And a large part of that is due to the media designing and manufacturing women to have the “right” look. I certainly fell victim to that. It’s so hard not to when you are in your early teens and seemingly rejected because of what makes you unique; and what should be celebrated, is in turn deemed a flaw. So I ate very little, enough to keep up energy, partied hard, and constantly competed with a very thin friend of mine (who was already 4 inches shorter than me) to see who could get skinnier. Well, at almost 5’7” tall and weighing in at 103 pounds, I was definitely headed down a dark road of deception and destruction. I was ill of body and of spirit.

So yes, I know firsthand what it’s like to be pressured into being thinner than you should and/or need to be. I know what it’s like to stand in front of the mirror every morning and check the space (or lack thereof) in between your thighs. I know what it feels like when you can’t fit into the smaller size jeans. And I know what it’s like to have stripes all over.

It’s been a long, and in many cases, torturous journey for me and, truth be told, one that tries to rear it’s ugly head now and then. But I can tell you that personally, becoming a mother has brought me to a deeper place of understanding about what true beauty looks like. I can look into my little girls’ eyes and confidently say that your beauty, your authenticity is reflected in the way you see and love yourself. I can say that because they look at me and say the same.

I can’t shield them from criticism, can’t be with them all the time. I wish I could. But if they can take that seed of truth and plant it deep within their hearts I, as their mom, have helped them break the chains of self-sabotage and encouraged them to freely blossom into the magnificent beauties they are. Friends, that message doesn’t just stop with the younger generations. It begins with you, where you stand right now. If your turnaround can be expedited by the power of belief, or your assurance of who you are can be confirmed by the way you walk, you will see yourself as the grace-given, grace-filled masterpiece that you are. It comes from a place of clarity and a renewed perspective, despite how difficult it seems. You are wonderful, you are worthy of respect and praise, you are deserving of love and yes, you are unique. Start with yourself and know…

YOUR stripes are beautiful


Okay but the new Power Rangers movie was actually amazing?? I did not go into it expecting it to get me so emotionally invested, thought it’d just be nostalgia and goofy, but that shit had plot and cute scenes and was campy and just?? so?? good?? Also can we talk about how amazing the Blue Ranger is?! My boy is the heart of the film and he’s not only a leading black character but he is also an autistic superhero which is huge. And Trini!!! Oh boy, don’t even get me started on my little yellow sunshine ranger. I’m so stoked on her character. Yes she is queer, that’s made clear with a tender exchange around the fire with Zack and the others, but the thing I loved about the movie is that it’s not her ~defining~ characteristic. She is caring and brave and incredibly fierce- that girl is a little spitfire let me tell you, first one to straight up jump up a mountain and fling herself across a canyon like gottdamn- and an amazing, loyal friend and she just so happens to be LGBT (it’s not clear yet if she identifies as exclusively lesbian, bisexual, pansexual etc or forgoes labels all together but fuck yeah). It’s refreshing to see that we can be represented like that… you don’t have to be in a relationship to be gay, you don’t have to have it be something that is tortuous and portrayed as a burden and source of constant conflict to the character. There’s something so nice about normalizing queerness. Yes we exist in all arenas of society, we are everyday people doing everyday things, sometimes we’re single, and sometimes we’re superheroes with a kick ass group of friends. Go go POWER RANGERS!!!!!

People were interested in me doing a thing like this, so here we go! I figured I’d do a short little blurb about each writer, including one or two of my favorite works by them. So, in no real order (like, I literally randomized the list) here are some of the most talented people* whose art I’ve had the pleasure of reading:

*Please note that some of these people haven’t written for bellarke in a while! That doesn’t mean you should pester them about it! Appreciate the heck out of what they have written instead. Cool? Cool.

1. Maria @rebelprincebell AO3

Maria’s written a good variety of longer and shorter fics, and each of them is excellent. (She’s also an amazing human/friend, but that’s more of a side perk.) She’s currently writing Things We Shouldn’t Do which is what everyone wants out of a multi-chap, fake-dating, actors AU. Or for something shorter, check out T.O.P. S.E.C.R.E.T. for some friends-with-benefits/feelings-reveal goodness. And maybe if she loves me she’ll finish Let’s Go to the Mall but it’s nbd.

2. Steph @ofhobbitsandwomen AO3

I read The Squire (multi-chap, medieval AU) when I was pretty new to the fandom, and I’m still completely in awe of it. Steph’s also written a million other amazing bellarke fics, like this fluffy-af youtubers AU (and, recently, some fucking amazing Jyn/Cassian stuff, if you’re into that) so make sure to check out all of her incredible writing.

3. M @ahmren AO3

M’s writing is magical. At the risk of sounding cliche, it wraps you up and carries you to another world. I could survive on nothing but her collection of soulmate AUs for years to come. 

4. Chash @ponyregrets AO3

Chash has written a million and one amazing fics, so obvs read everything she’s written, but one of my particular faves is Some Cheese With That Whine. It gives me all the best-friends-to-lovers feelings. Amazing. Plus she likes all my posts when I’m flailing about ffx <3

5. Katelyn @nathenmiller AO3

Secrets is the only arranged marriage fic you ever need to read. Period. I also love this fluffy lil childhood-friends-meet-up-ten-years-later AU. Plus, on top of all the fantastic writing, K’s one of the incredibly hardworking ladies behind bff. What a girl??

6. Lana @marauders-groupie AO3

Lana’s another one of those writers where I know I’ll like everything she publishes. She’s like, the queen a soulmate AU’s. Her most recent one is here–a cool iteration where you feel whatever pain your soulmate feels. As with all the other authors here, don’t forget to check out all her other stories!

7. Kacka @katchyalater AO3

I discovered Kacka this summer, and her stories saved me from boredom on the countless train rides I was taking across Europe. By which I mean you should just read through everything on her AO3 page, like I did. Everyone loves a good coffee-shop AU, right? Check out Got to Find Those Extra Cups to Fill. She’s a fantastic, inspiring writer and an even lovelier human being.

8. Emily @prosciuttoe AO3

Emily had the nerve to make me cry by posting a canonverse fic, Hold This Heart Steady, today. So do yourself a favor and read that. Other Emily faves include: Your Heart Is Your Own (So Build Me A Home) and Every Little Thing She Does Is Magic (for all your Hogwarts AU needs).

9. Brianna @jvnscass AO3

Bri’s another one of the authors I first read when I joined the fandom! She doesn’t write much bellarke anymore, but it’s all still up on her AO3 along with a ton of quality Jyn/Cassian fics, if that’s your jam!

10. Nai @hiddenpolkadots AO3

Want canon-verse smut? Nai’s got u covered: Mouth Like Heaven, Kisses Like Stars. Or for something on the fluffier/hurtcomfort side, try the light that sits at the bottom of your chest. You literally can’t go wrong. She writes Jily too!

11. Kayla @kay-emm-gee AO3

Kayla’s the first person I ever considered my “favorite fanfic author” and the title still fits, even if I do have about a million “favorite” authors now. Full Circle is an older, post s2, fic of hers, but it’s undeniably still one of my faves. A more recent fave is: this is your heart (can you feel it). These are both canonverse, but she writes amazing modern AUs as well. <3

12. Meghan @bellamyfrecklefaceblake AO3

I feel like Meghan writes the best epic-feelings-reveal scenes?? Some faves are: A Drunk Mind Speaks A Sober Heart and You Won’t Get Rid of Me Without a Fight. I want to live in the feelings at the end of these fics pls and thx. (Also, hope your hand is doing better!!)

13. Mel @caramelkru AO3

Is it getting old for me to keep saying I like everything insert-name-here writes?? I’d stop, except that it’s TRUE. Mel is fantastic. Her last installment in Good Times Gonna Come is so cute I can’t actually stand it. Something In The Air (That Night) is also super good. (She also writes Sethkate and Jyn/Cassian!)

(Okay I’m running out of time for these last few–gotta get to class–so I’ll just do one fic rec from each writer, BUT they’re all such fucking talented authors. Everything they write is amazing.)

14. Katie @dreamingundone AO3

take a running start

15. Jazz @hooksandheroics  AO3

Out of All the Gin Joints

16. S @kinetic-elaboration  AO3

Since There’s No Place To Go

17. Amber @bilexualclarke  AO3

asleep in the bathtub (also, like… her blog title doesn’t lie)

18. Emily @kieraknighted  AO3

Walk With Me

19. Annie @clarkescrusade  AO3

those broken and delicate things

20. Julia @enoughtotemptme  AO3

Aurora Borealis

21. @queenofchildren  AO3

OKAY PHEW. I think that’s everything. As a last note, don’t forget to appreciate your favorite authors! A comment or reblog here and there goes a long way. Kudos and likes are lovely, but not quite as tangible as comments and tags.

Happy Reading!
