BIRD.

If I think about it, birds and I have never particularly gotten along. It comes from a combination of small 1nky never knowing how to approach them and the fact that some birds have a tendency to be fierce, territorial and protective little demons if you do so much as look at them wrong.

Small 1nky has been chased by geese, pecked at by miner birds, bitten by a variety of parrots, swooped at by a magpie, and had her school lunch ripped to shreds by crows during a school outing. 

I still love them and find them amazingly gorgeous, though. One day, these small dinosaurs will be the death of me.

(I seem to be getting along with a few parrots nowadays, however. : B)

All my siblings are married, successful, and having kids and I feel like a failure. I've never been kissed and I'm terrified I'll be alone forever. My friends have all moved on and I sometimes wonder what I did wrong. I feel that I'll never move passed the job I've been doing for years, because I'm scared it's the only thing I'm good at.. This is the most honest thing I've said to anyone in months. I apologize for unloading.. But I saw the Anon about anything post and couldn't help it.

hey, don’t apologize, do NOT apologize at all for saying this! thank you SO much for sending me this message, bc I want you to know that I understand and can empathize with you on practically all of this. I’ve never been kissed - I’ve never even dated anyone before - and I’ve far surpassed the age where that’s considered normal. it especially sucks when everyone around you (in your case, siblings) is in a relationship - i know those feelings of wondering if you’ll be alone forever. but trust me, there is absolutely nothing wrong with you. I have faith that you and I will both one day find someone amazing and that all this lonely waiting will have been worth it!! and I also understand you on the friend aspect. I feel the exact same way, like all my friends have moved on, and these have probably been the loneliest months of my life, but I know we’ll get through this, you and me, we can do it! this was super long and probably far more personal than you anticipated, but I just want you to know you are great and message me any time if you ever want to talk more!!

I know it’s easy to keep stereotyping Yoongi as cold/lazy/cut off kind of person but sometimes i think it gets to a point where it’s wrong and hurtful in the fandom. And so here’s a list of reasons Min Yoongi is a warm, hard working individual with a personality that is multi-faceted and beautiful.

  • was a member of the student council when he was in school and was always helping people who approached him and writing them encouraging messages, contrary to popular ‘bad boy’ image belief.
  • works into late hours of the night, even goes without sleeping when he’s concentrating on composing a new song/lyrics and spends hours on end in the studio
  • on that note, it is said he recorded the way he said ‘bulteorune’ about 200 times before he was satisfied with how it sounded
  • despite not being the lead dancer, is almost never criticized for his dance skills because he clearly works hard on it, whether or not he’s the best
  • again, a side note that he spent his birthday with hoseok practicing dance that hoseok taught him
  • his stage presence is full of energy and he even kneeled down and bowed for a good minute of stage when he knew his parents were in the crowd, and otherwise also displays emotions on stage, including crying
  • gets shy and touched when members throw him a surprise birthday party
  • extremely considerate of what fans think/feel, unlike a lot of other idols. he’s responsible enough to know the effect his words have on fans and therefore constantly promotes a healthy body image, saying he doesn’t have ideal an outfit/weight/height/personality type
  • that time he spent his own money to buy personal gifts/write different messages for 300+ fans on his birthday, and then did it again the next year too
  • branching off to the time when he got asked on a radio interview what he’d do with the royalties of the songs he produced (jump/tomorrow) and he replied that he’d take the band and stuff out for lunch with his own money
  • that time he bought all the kids in bts ice cream without asking and won them toys in AHL and they were so happy about it
  • that time hoseok wasn’t eating because he lost and yoongi said he couldn’t eat if his dongsaegs weren’t eating and that he was full just watching him eat, giving him his share of food
  • doesn’t care that he’s not a good singer and sings loudly and shamelessly when he’s in the mood
  • the new years day yoongi didn’t spend with own family just because hoseok was lonely in the dorms
  • that one time jungkook jumped on yoongi and hugged him and yoongi looked like he might just die from happiness
  • when he laughs when something is too funny and no noise comes out and he claps around like a seal and it’s so so adorable
  • said he likes smart girls who he could have long conversations with/hear her stories and she was good with computers
  • actually gets super flattered and smug when people find his sass funny
  • that time they were on running man and had to run for boxes and ran so fast he was far ahead of even jungkook
  • that time namjoon was supposed to perform on stage and yoongi was deadpan the whole performance until it was namjoon’s turn, and then he has laughing and singing and screaming and being super supportive
  • once when the members were just annoying jungkook a little and yoongi sensed jungkook felt a little sad so he wordlessly reached out to him and petted him and said ‘I think he’s adorable’
  • on that note, always sensing the members discomfort/sadness and being a silent supporter and saying encouraging things to make them feel better
  • never holds back of compliments. ever.
  • he is a wonderful, multi-faceted man with emotions other than being ‘dead inside’ and loves the people around him so much and is full of appreciation and support for them and endlessly a source of strength for them.

Okay so where do I begin ? For starters *eye roll * I am so damn tired of Taylor Swift playing the victim card . Homegirl has made a living off of music attacking ppl she felt have “wronged ” her . The only difference between Taylor and Kanye is that Taylor plays the ~innocent ~ card. Which in part, excuses her blatant disregard for other people’s feeling as some form of bullying remorse- when in actuality she’s the bully. That being said , I have never been more happy about Kim Kardashian’s existence .

one thing that keeps tugging my mind is that, with us all walking around with our phones in our faces trying to catch pokemon, it is actually starting to look like one of those dumb shitty cartoons about millennials and their tech, you know?

but for some reason, i’m not disheartened by that. in fact, i love it

the whole point of dumb shitty comics like that is that, y’know, “these kids today are just focused on their phones, and it’s destroying the world!” and the world has never looked like the exaggerated image of everyone below the age of 35 looking at their phones and nothing else – but now that it does… who cares! what’s wrong with everyone coming together and bonding over this silly game! we’re all having SO MUCH FUN! i’ve interacted with strangers more in the past two days than i have in the past two months, and it is 100% because i’ve been walking around with my face glued to my phone, and so has everyone else

this is a silly game and it’s glitchy as hell and it makes everyone focus on their phones, and I LOVE IT

“Wait, what?” (Peter Parker x Reader)

Request: “Hi there, can you make an imagine about Peter inviting the reader to the avengers tower to watch Disney channel movies (HSM, camp rock, starstruck, etc) and having a friendly fight about which one is better? And they could end up kissing for the first time💗💗(sorry if there is something wrong, English isn’t my first language)”

AN: I haven’t watched a lot of these movies in a long time so I hope it’s okay! Also, I keep writing kissing scenes and I’ve never been kissed so I just hope it isn’t too obvious lmao.

You squealed in excitement as you read through your twitter feed. Disney Channel was planning to show a full day of their original movies. That would be so much fun to watch, you thought. A full day and night watching movies from your childhood? Sign me up! 

Peter looked up from his book. The two of you were in the library together. Him studying, you playing on your phone. Your squeal had caught his attention and he gave you a questioning look. You ducked your head while trying to stifle a giggle when you realized what you had done.

“Sorry Peter,” you whispered from across the table, still giggling. Peter tried to hide his smile. He didn’t mind you interrupting him, he never did. The two of you were good friends, but Peter wanted to be a little bit more. However he’d never tell you that.

“What’s up?” He scooted closer to you.

“It says here Disney Channel is showing a ton of their original movies tonight and tomorrow! Don’t you think that would be so much fun to watch?” You explained to Peter. Suddenly your face lit up as you got an idea.

“Why don’t we have a movie night together Peter? Want to come over tonight?” You asked him. “We live in the same apartment building so you can leave whenever. Oh my gosh this’ll be so much fun! We can order pizza and buy candy on the walk home!” You gushed while Peter tried to catch up.

“Uh, yeah, sure.” He blushed at the thought of being with you so late at night, most likely alone in your room. Like sure, he’d been there before but never at night or-

“What do you say Peter?” You interrupted his thoughts.

“Sounds great. Let me just text Aunt May.” He responded.

“Yeah I should probably ask too.” You smacked your head jokingly for forgetting.

Soon the both of you received similar texts.

“I can’t believe I forgot the cable was still down in the building.” You groaned in disappointment.

“Me either.” Peter sighed. He was really looking forward to spending time with you. Suddenly he got an idea.

“Well, I, uh, I do know somewhere we could go.” Peter scratched the back of his neck nervously, hoping things could work out.

“Really? Where?”


“Oh my gosh Peter. I can’t believe we’re here.” You stood, wide eyed as the elevator doors opened to reveal the lounging area in the Avengers Tower.

“Yeah, well, I am an intern here. I just hope Mr. Stark won’t mind.” Peter glanced around anxiously. He hadn’t been able to contact Tony before bringing you here. But Peter did already have access so…

You jumped on the fluffy couch, more excited than ever. Peter turned the TV on while you gathered some blankets.

“I can’t wait to see High School Musical! That was my favorite movie when I was younger. It’s probably the best Disney Channel movie ever.” You told Peter as he sat down next to you.

“Are you sure it’s still not your favorite?” Peter joked. “Plus, if you’re going music related, Camp Rock is much better.”

“Excuse me? I resent that statement.” You turned away from the TV to face Peter full on.

“Or, you know, High School Musical is good too.” He agreed, smiling. Not really caring as long as you were smiling back at him.

“What? You’re just gonna give up that easily?” You raised your brow.

“For you, yes.” Peter gave you a soft smile.

“Wha-what?” You blushed. Peter suddenly realized what he just said.

“Um, I mean…” Peter froze. He had no idea what to say. “I just don- don’t want to argue w-with you.” Peter stuttered out, lying horribly.

“Peter… do you like me?” Your own face was now a scarlet red, as you never thought your best friend would think of you that way. It was true that you thought Peter was probably the nicest and most respectful boy on the planet, which was why you didn’t want to ruin your friendship with him by making a move. But if he already liked you, well, why not? You were suddenly overcome by affection for Peter. He was such an incredible friend, going as far as bringing you to the Avengers tower just to watch Disney movies with you. Plus, he was absolutely adorable. How had you not seen it before?

“I uh,” Peter avoided eye contact with you, still flustered and reeling over what to say. Suddenly, your lips were on his. His eyes were wide open in shock before he relaxed against you. Peter didn’t think feeling this much emotion was possible before now. Fighting crazy villains was nothing compared to this adrenaline rush.

Soon you broke apart, breathing heavily. You rested your forehead against Peter’s, faces pink.

“W-was that alright?” It was your turn to stutter.

“I’d say.” You heard a voice from behind you. You and Peter quickly jumped apart from each other. When you realized who it was your embarrassment only increased tenfold.

“Uh, hi Mr. Stark.” Peter gulped.

“Hello Peter. Funny seeing you here. In my lounge. Without my permission. With a girl. Kissing.” Tony quirked his brow.

Peter gulped. He’d certainly never become an Avenger now. He was going to be in so much trouble, what if he got yelled at in front of (Y/N)? That would be even more embarrassing than being caught. Peter began to admit a string of apologies when Tony smirked.

“I’m almost proud of you. You remind me of myself when I was your age. Of course, I was more handsome, but-”

“Wait, what?” Peter cut Tony off, still trying to catch up to the fact that he wasn’t in trouble.

“I said I was more handsome, there’s no use arguing the facts Peter.”

  • Emily:So, how long have you been sleeping with Luke?
  • Lorelai:That’s disgusting. And wrong. I don’t even get– why would– I’ve never had sex with anyone, anywhere. It’s none of your- you have- the nerve, the audacity, Luke is my friend. And he is terrible, face-wise. And how- how- do I know, frankly, that you’re not sleeping with him? Maybe you are. Maybe you’re trying to throw me off? Hmm check and mate.
Guide to The Basics of Story Writing

           A common theme that runs through fanfiction writers is the fact that none of us were ever actually taught how to write stories before we started writing them. Through reading books and other fanfictions, we learned how to correctly write stories. Or incorrectly, as it sometimes is.

           There’s nothing wrong with this. Unless you actually attend a workshop or class for creative story writing, you’re likely never to learn the grammar rules (unless your type of light reading is the Chicago Manual of Style). I know I’m constantly correcting myself on things even though I consider myself to know proper grammar.

           So that is to say that what I say here may not be 100% accurate to what you have been taught. This is what I was taught (I attend a university for Creative Writing and work as a proofreader for a small press so I have some knowledge), and people learn differently. I am an American, so perhaps in other English-speaking countries grammar rules are different. I honestly do not know. This is not the end all and be all. But this will be a guide to those who have always wondered how to write “correctly” (again, there are multiple correct ways according to who you ask, but this will all definitely be one correct way) or maybe for those who are not native English speakers who have graced us single-language-only speakers with their talent and would like to know more.

           So, first off, I am going to be using example sentences from a fanfiction I wrote called Prince of Christmas from December of 2015. I’ll probably be editing sentences I wrote over half a year ago as I go through this for things to be correctly formatted. This guide is not in any way geared towards any specific ship or fandom, nor do I discuss any ship or fandom. I just chose a long fic of mine written semi-recently that I could pull examples from. This guide can help any and all fandom and non-fandom writers.

           The sections I discuss, in order, are dialogue, quoting, paragraphs, indenting, commas, run-on sentences, semicolons, em dashes and ellipses, italics, NSFW, perspective and tense, editing options, posting, and resources.

           Let us begin.
