no war between peoples


I’ve had many faces, many lives. But I don’t admit to all of them. There’s one life I’ve tried very hard to forget. He was the Doctor who fought in the Time War and that was the day he did it. The day I did it. The day he killed them all. The last day of the Time War. The war to end all wars. Between my people and the Daleks. And in that battle there was a man with more blood on his hands than any other. A man who would commit a crime that would silence the universe. And that man was me.

The 100 Hellatus Survival Kit

Since I know all of us will be in various stages of mourning and death over the next 9ish months, here’s some fandoms to fling yourselves into to cope! (WARNING: There’s a lot of books..)

* = (post) apocalypse / dystopia setting
** = relationship dynamic reminiscent of bellarke
*** = both


**The Expanse

Want to fantasize about the delinquents in space? This is basically the S5 au you need.

  • kick ass space opera
  • diverse af cast
  • Nolden = Space Blarke (not kidding, this is what would’ve happened if she went to space)

**The X-Files

I know I never shut up about this show, but it’s for a good reason. Are you sad about Bellarke and need a long ass show to invest yourself in? With a slow burn couple, built on trust and respect and support? LOOK NO FURTHER!

  • government conspiracies
  • sad space parents
  • the longest slow burn that will renew your faith in blarke (its literally 7 years)
  • 10 seasons worth of content so you won’t run dry


Looking for another “diverse group of misfits that create their own family” to cry over?

  • 8 people share a psychic link
  • the bad government want to experiment on them
  • the most diverse cast i stg (gay ships! trans characters! poc!)
  • ships that will make you cry for 17 days 
  • so many people sleep on this so and i not qu(white) understand

***The Walking Dead

How about another power couple leading a rag tag group of peeps through the apocalypse? (Yeah I’m talking about Richonne)

  • zombie apocalypse
  • i don’t think i really need to explain this
  • but ana would literally kill me if i didn’t include them on this list
  • richonne = bellarke material


You can thank Mik and April for this one. In case you’re wondering what’s in store for blarke next season, or if you’re wanting to imagine that reunion.

  • bunch a strangers plane crash on a magic island
  • it’ll melt your brains (I’ve watched it twice and I’m still not sure i completely understand everything)
  • but seriously ask mik about desmond x penny because she’ll make you cry about s5 blarke


Just want a cute feel good show with just enough angst and a ship that will cause you only minor pain?

***Pacific Rim

Stay with me here. How about a visually stunning movie about the people fighting monsters in giant robots? But with important character backstories, diversity, and Idris Elba?

  • survivors are called from all over to join either the good guys or the bad guys
  • its much cooler than it sounds
  • I’d recommend the book but its 1200 pages and I know y'all don’t have that motivation

50th Anniversary Special: The Day of the Doctor

Seeing posts about how Rebels could end after S3 really makes me realise how much i need this show to LIVE.

Stop being such huge pissbabies about Shallura or Shaladins. It’s so fucking immature of you guys to be saying shit like “DON’T TALK TO ME IF YOU SHIP _______” or if you try to disprove / hate on the other ship because YOU don’t agree with it.

You know what we could do instead? Maybe fucking accept that people ship different things, and that these are FICTIONAL characters and in no way have any goddamn affect on the real world because they aren’t physical people?

Let people ship whatever the fuck they want to ship. Stop making it a war between you guys, this is why people look at our fandom and think we’re fucking bad. 

Sheith? Okay.

Shance? Okay.

Shidge? Okay.

Shunk? Okay. 

Shallura? Okay.

Asexual Shiro? Okay.

Shoran? GO FOR IT.

It doesn’t fucking MATTER what someone ships, whether it makes sense canonly, their ages (which by the way, nothing SOLID has been actually confirmed aside from general age gaps), their sizes, their races, ANYTHING. IT. DOESN’T. FUCKING. MATTER. 






one day in the not-so-distant future, a war will erupt between the people that ran with their arms behind them because of naruto and the people that ran with their arms in front of them like superman and it will only end because the peace treaty involves both groups shoving the people that ran with their arms behind them like sonic into a tiny, tiny locker that no one will ever find

sneak peek

Hey you guys! Since it’s taking me annoyingly long to finish any of my current works, I decided to give you a sneak peek on the class reunion AU I’m writing thanks to @bailci​. Kind of like to give myself a reason to get my shit together and finish this thing god damn it.

Original prompt from @solangeloprompts:

Class Reunion AU. Everyone from their batch knew how much Will Solace and Nico di Angelo hated each other back during high school.

So, when their reunion took place fifteen years later, none of their batchmates ever expected for the two to get along so well with each other much less find out that they’re actually…engaged?

Just what had happened during those fifteen years?

Read my sneak peek under the cut! :)

justafan42  asked:

I have a question about the idea of a Reylo force bond... It's everywhere in Reylo fic but I don't know where it comes from in TFA. I've seen the movie a few times and I can imagine it's true (plus seem to be hints elsewhere in interviews etc), but where's the evidence in the film? Have I missed something obvious? Is this thing canon or fanon? And who first suggested/discovered it after TFA came out - do you know? I'm just wondering how it came to be all-pervasive in Reylo fandom... Thanks :)

I wrote an essay on the canonical evidence for a Force Bond, both specifically within TFA (as a component of Reylo) and the precedents set for it by other Star Wars characters like Bastila and Revan. You might want to read that first. If you still have questions about the evidence for a Force Bond after that, send another ask and I’ll try to answer ‘em as best I can.

As for whether it’s canon/fanon - Force Bonds (specifically within TFA) have not been conclusively proven (and I don’t think they will be until The Last Jedi drops), but neither are Force Bonds a product of fanon. They’re a confirmed canon aspect of Star Wars world-building, and really the only question that remains is “do Rey and Kylo have one?”

Re who suggested it first - not sure tbh. My meta was one of the first big ones breaking down in detail the canonical aspects of a Force Bond within Star Wars, but people were drawing parallels between Revan and Kylo/Bastila and Rey long before The Force Awakens or my meta dropped.

@little-scribblers-heart and @ricca-raccoon‘s Interstellar Transmissions - which specifically deals with Force Bonded Reylo - was one of the earliest (and biggest) Reylo fanfics out there, and it predates basically all the major meta (including mine). It was and remains a highly influential fic within the fandom, and it even got featured in The Atlantic. @avenrue (AKA Trebia on AO3) was also featured in The Atlantic, and her Force Bond fics were highly influential at the time too.

So I guess the idea of a Force Bond became all-pervasive within the Reylo fandom due to a multitude of factors and everyone just ran with it, as fans do. Certain tropes just stick around and never really leave. Like for the Lord of the Rings fandom it’s Girl in Middle-earth/Tenth Walker.


Time for FRIDAY FASHION FACT! Today’s topic is a bit more conceptual than the Facts I’ve done in the past, but I think it is very important to recognize the over-arching factors that influence fashion in order to fully understand how fashion has developed. This is a bit difficult to explain in such a small space, so bear with me, and remember that this is all much more complex than I lay it out to be.

Throughout history, the biggest influence on fashion has clearly been technology. The next biggest influence, though, has been war. War causes huge divisions between people. It drains resources. It pits agenda versus agenda, ideology versus ideology. It has the ability to effect every aspect of life. It can change the world, so it should come as no surprise that it changes fashion.

In several of my past posts, I have mentioned specific wars being an influence on fashion- most commonly the French Revolution, World War I, and World War II. While most wars have an impact on fashion, these three have had a significantly bigger impact that the rest. The reason for the World War’s having such a large impact is obvious- it’s right there in the name. These wars spanned the globe, and wider geography means wider impact.

The French Revolution, however, theoretically seems as though it would effect only France. Yet the effect of war is rarely contained only to the country in which the war takes place. In terms of fashion, during the era of the French Revolution, France was the epicenter of fashion. There are still many people who would debate that France is still the fashion capitol of the world, but in the 18th and 19th centuries, there was no debate. France reigned supreme on the style front. If the French wore a style, the rest of the western world quickly followed suit.

So why do wars have such a strong impact on fashion? Well, every war is different, so it varies from war to war. Overall, though, is due to two factors. One is because war tends to be a huge strain on resources, with vast amounts of funds and materials donated to the military effort. Secondly, war pits (at least) two groups against each other, groups with different values and goals. A person’s value system, lifestyle, etc. is often reflected in their clothing. The values of the prevailing side often seeps into the fashion of the people. Between these two factors, war often means a dramatic lifestyle change not only for the soldiers off fighting, but for those they leave at home. A change in lifestyle results in a change of dress. This is why changes in fashion that may take decades or more during peaceful times can occur over the course of just a few years during wartime.

An important thing to keep in mind, though, is that fashion does not change overnight, just like the wars that influence it do not happen overnight. As the world starts to shift, conflict rises, and war is imminent, fashion reflects the changing world. People often think that women went straight from wearing elaborate rococo gowns, complete with wide panniers, to simple cylindrical muslin dresses. Or they seem to ignore the era between structured Edwardian dresses and the untailored flapper look (though to be fair, Downton Abby has had a huge impact in changing that.) The reality is that aspects of the new styles are evident in fashion in the years leading up to the wars.

Of course, there are countless factors which have contributed to the development of fashion throughout the centuries (and don’t worry, I will cover as many as possible in upcoming Facts! Plus I’ll be sure to go into more detail about the wars I talked about in this post.) Just remember, the next time you’re looking at historical fashion and see a dramatic shift, take a look at what was happening in the world at that time!

After the first day of the investigation was over, you were heading back to your apartment by your own, without anybody accompanying in a cold, snowy evening. The clock hovering by the street showed how late it was. As an Auror, who had done good job of delivering new task from your boss, Percival Graves, and fearful work of investigating these dark wizards, especially they were possibly Grindelwald’s followers, which was to be feared as the rate of being endangered along with your people and setting up a war between No-Majs and wizards were considerably high.

Today’s work had only touched the surface, which was fortunate for the present moment as it hadn’t gone too dangerous but you couldn’t risk to be harmed just because you didn’t build up your guard, which was high level of awareness. So, despite how exhausted you were to your spine, you had to endure of being aware of your environment, at least for this state.

Once you had arrived in your apartment, you rushed to your bedroom and checked out outside’s view to make sure of everything alright. When you lied yourself on your bed, you began thinking about your ex again and his letter. In the time of running your mission, you were distracted from the thoughts of him but now, you were not occupied by any activity.

Zero Kiryuu

I’m not sure how to start this, ‘cause I never planned to do a blog post about him. Let me begin by saying that I’m a huge fan of Kaname and I’m on Yume’s side, nevertheless sometimes I don’t understand such a huge war between the two sides, and how some people are so narrow minded due to their fanaticisms. I mean, we all love the same manga, right? (Although it’s okay if we just fought for fun haha)

I know as a fact, that Yuuki loved Zero. I even cross my eyes when anyone tries to deny it. (And that doesn’t make me feel insecure about my OTP)

Even more, I can say a few good things about Zero. I wanna clarify that there are many stuff I don’t like about him, but this post doesn’t plan to continue the war, so I’ll just say the things I like. And I’m not just talking about how good looking he is (lol)

I like his ability to suffer in silence. The way he endured the pain for years, without wanting others to pity him… I’m talking about those four years he spent battling his vampirism, without even Yuuki noticing. That’s being strong.

  • “I didn’t understand anything. Zero suffered and suffered for four years. What were you thinking, all by yourself? He loathes vampires so much, he wants to kill them all. All this time, Zero wanted to kill himself too”

The way he tolerated seeing the girl he loved with his worst adversary, more than once. Or the times Yuuki talked to him about her feelings for Kaname, and (as far as I remember) he never complained. He would accept Yuuki’s feelings, even if they weren’t for him. Even if they were for someone he hates. I believe this moment serves as an example.

And my favourite aspect about him, is how he stays next to Yuuki when Kaname leaves her. He loves her so much that he waits decades to be with her. He loves her so much that he wants to be with her, even if she already has a daughter with Kaname. He loves her so much that he is good with Kaname’s daughter too. I really enjoyed their friendship during the begining, I think it has lots of funny moments. But, at this point, I also like the way he loves her.

There are more things that I like about Zero, but I think these are enough.

By last, this is my favourite Zeki moment… yes, I have one.

To be perfectly transparent, I’d rather use any extra money I get to make the Ten-Year War game (showing the epic war between Diana and the Demon Lord), but people like the incubi a little more; enough to ask for an SM3.

So please, if you (or anyone reading this) feel bad about asking for Seduce Me 3, don’t. Just know that, yes, it has crossed my mind, and while I originally was not going to, there is a small chance it could happen now on the table.

It is now on fans like you to make it happen.

Word of the Week: Rosenkrieg

With Valentine’s Day behind us, let’s take a look at a less romantic German word: Rosenkrieg.

If you know some German, you might be able to translate this word. Rose means “rose” and Krieg means “war”. Rosenkrieg thus translates to “rose war” or “war of the roses”. But what exactly is this - and how it have anything to do with flowers?

Originally posted by won-der-land89

A rose may be beautiful, but a Rosenkrieg is ugly. This term defines unpleasant disagreements between partners, such as marital disputes, custody battles or feuds between ex-lovers. A Rosenkrieg is uglier than a simple disagreement; metaphorically speaking, it’s a war between two people who were once lovers.

Like any love affair, a rose can be both beautiful and dangerous with its thorns.

But this context is a colloquial one. Rosenkriege can also refer to the actual Wars of the Roses that took place between two English houses (House York and House Lancaster) in the 15th century. Unless you’re a history buff, you probably won’t be using the term in that context, since that’s a war of the past.

The Rosenkriege we’re speaking of are ongoing and take place all throughout the world, unfortunately. And they can be pretty thorny.


“How does one mourn for six million people who died? How many candles does one light? How many prayers does one recite? Do we know how to remember the victims, their solitude, their helplessness? They left us without a trace, and we are their trace.” -Elie Wiesel.

The Holocaust is a scar in our history. 6 Million Jews were murdered by the evil Nazis. Women, men and children as one. Between the victims there were also war prisoners, Homosexuals, Disabled people etc. – Those who didn’t match the Nazis’ rotten ideology. Those who were considered too inferior to live.

All of us are different. We shall accept the differences between us and treat each other with respect. We shall avoid hate, judgment and stereotypes. Fill your heart with love to the people around you, live in peace and celebrate everyone’s uniqueness. We shall all remember the terrors of the Holocaust, and take it with us in our hearts as each day goes, and never let anything like this happen again. Never again.
