I wanted to take a moment to give Of Oak and Ash and Grasping Thorn another bump today, since so far it’s the only fic I’ve posted on AO3 without any comments at all, and I’m not gonna lie, I feel awful about that. So. What’s it got to recommend it? It’s a Cassandra story, it’s got creepy dreams and creepier flashbacks, it’s got the Briarwoods and their friends at the height of their powers, it’s got a terrible mockery of a family dinner and a whole lot of dangerously tangled feelings about Cassandra’s family, past and present…so there’s good stuff there, I dearly hope. Give it a look, would’d’ja, and if you liked it, could you drop a word or two to let me know?
I just wanted to share something very special with you all.
A wonderful friend I made here on Tumblr, @kagebullshitnojutsu, knows my love for her homeplace - which is London. I have never been able to visit myself but it has been on my bucket list for about 15 years. Out of the kindness of her heart, she sent me a care package full of British snacks and a beautifully written letter that included a drawing of Shikamaru on the back. I am in awe at such a genuinely thoughtful gesture.
Thank you from the bottom of my wee little heart for taking the time (and money!!) to send me this package. My heart feels so warm and tingly! Not gonna lie, I shed a tiny little tear while opening it and reading your letter. ~~ Just because of how kind this gesture was. You are a wonderful friend and I do hope as well that we continue to bond over our mutual fondness for Shikamaru.
Tumblr is a beautiful place and we are so lucky to be in it - and to be surrounded by such wonderful people. I have made some incredible friends within this fandom. You all know who you are! I not only feel blessed today but I feel blessed everyday for knowing all of you.
Thank you again, Emma. I cannot wait to eat every single thing in this package!! xx Muah!!!

this year has been rough. not gonna lie. a lot has happened that has sucked, and i’ve learnt to not rely on circumstances for your happiness. don’t wait for the right moment to be happy, because something else awful is gonna come by and hit you down again, you need to learn how to maintain happiness when things suck. cause people get sick, people pass away, people leave, and that’s just how it is. it sucks. but these are things that are gonna be constantly occurring throughout your lifetime, and you need to learn to be happy throughout these times. allow yourself time to be sad, mourn, but you need to move on, and that’s something i’ve had to work on this year.
Wentworth The L Word, aw yeah lesbians, hopefully this is good The IT Crowd That 70′s show, I remember watching random episodes with my parents Terrace House, the lpers I watch said this is enteraining Scandal Quantico Scream Shameless Flash Gotham, not gonna lie I’m confused as to why the penguin is a tall skinny dude, and not short and big like you know a /penguin/ Penny Dreadful Sense 8, I heard this is pretty gay Law and Order SVU, at least what they have on their Friends, I’ll find out if Ross is really that bad House of Cards How to get away with Murder, aw yeah Viola Davis Hemlock Grove Grey’s Anatomy Lost, I gave up on this when it aired on tv so let’s try again The Legends of Tomorrow, I know nothing about this tbh Limitless Peaky Binders Znation House, another show I watched random episodes of Izombie Dexter Supergirl, lesbians happen at some point Mad Men, all I known is the guy who played Cole from La Noire is in this and my main reason for even being into this The Killing Unbreakable Kimmy Schimit Buffy the Vampire Slayer Pokemon Charmed, my mom loved this show when it aired From Dusk until Dawn, I do like vampires Jane the Virgin Freaks and Geeks Young Justice Voltron, Steven voices one of them, so that’s really all I care about Crazy Ex Girlfriend, I like musicals, also that bi song is great Gilmore Girls, a friend of mine used the one girl as a faceclaim for Max Caulfield lol Don’t Trust the B, I like Krysten Ritter Being Human, another show my mom watched
Not gonna lie these post between them is gonna make me cry😫
Aw! I feel bad for Amber bc you can tell she’s hurting but as for the loss of the ship I’m not really in any kind of mourning, idk I guess I just don’t get in it that deep. I’m basically here for their happiness and while they were together that meant I was rooting for them to succeed and make each other happy but since they’ve broken up it’s clear that they’re better off apart right now so I’m glad they made that decision so that they can each move on towards finding the person that IS right for them. Try thinking of it that way, and then maybe you’ll feel better about it :)
i have doctors appointment today. Seeing my actual doctor feels weird after only seeing therapists and psychiatrists. Still its all gonna get me more meds to forget to take, i know it will. I think this about my sleep but maybe i can ask to see another psychiatrist so i can,,, tell them something for once and not lie
Friend: I’m not sure about this new show - it looks kind of silly. New Show: Hi! I’m not gonna lie to you, I am really silly. But I’ve got a female villain who’s done really terrible thing. I mean awful. She has a tragic past and it’s possible she might want to redeem herself. There’s another female character who’s fundamentally good and they reluctantly team up to fight evil. Also, they would die for each other. Me: Well, that’s my fanfiction reading sorted for the next two years.
