not really sure how to tag this one

11 Facts About Me

Tagged… most recently (AAAAAGES AGO, I’m sorry I forgot) by @ladyalisette and I’m pretty sure that wasn’t the only one to tag me, so… here goes!

1) I used to be really afraid of spiders… until the day a lecture (I forget which, might have been animal physiology) involved having a real live tarantula on your hand and it was so fuzzy. Now I’m afraid of spiders in a specific size range. Huge is fine, tiny is fine hereabouts, but somewhere between that is pure nope. 

2) I learned to wiggle my ears separately(…ish) yeeears ago because a character on a show I liked could do it.

3) It takes a lot to really viscerally squick me out, but of all the things, the thought of loose teeth makes me seriously queasy. 

4) I’m ridiculously sensitive to bitter tastes - even bitter chocolate is too much for me. 

5) A few years ago, I started taking piano lessons from our neighbor, but never got anywhere because studying for school ate my time. I’ve forgotten just about everything, but I’m still ridiculously proud of the fact that I managed to cram part of Davy Jones’ Theme into my head somewhat tolerably on my own (and consequently forgot it because holy fuck it’s been more than  five years why.)

6) The way my mother tells it, my first and middle name would’ve been the other way around, but I was such a huge baby they felt giving me something that meant “gazelle” as a first name didn’t fit.

7) I share both blood group (B positive) and zodiac sign (Leo) with Tatsuya “*flicks lighter*” Suou… and in a Persona 2-themed mafia-spinoff forum game my role was the Sun Arcana. (I’m taller than him, though.)

8) I meow back at cats… sometimes even while I’m in the middle of talking to a family member. 

9) Towards the end of… I guess high school equivalent, I started trying to learn to write with my left hand so I could still take exams if I hurt my right hand.

10) The first nightmare I remember having was playing water polo against Voldemort. He wanted to murder me because I won, IIRC.

11) I enjoy cooking when I’ve got the time (and preferably someone else around to pressgang into helping), but I am so so bad at actually taking a reasonable amount of time for it. (This may or may not be affected by the fact that lab has skewed my idea of what “just a short wait” is.)

Tagging… if you all are fine with it, @mater-lachrymarum, @nebty, @tatzelwyrm, @black-cat-aoife, @toooldforthisbutstill, @theherondaels, @toipilas, @toughbreaks@hohtohopeainen… the usual suspects.

the no bullshit guide to getting your shit together: for the lazy student

Let’s be honest: time management and organization? They’re really hard. Sure, at first you might feel like you’ve gotten the hang of them, that you’re in control of your life. But how often have you fallen off the wagon? Procrastinated on one thing and the next moment, you’re behind in all your classes? I know that sometimes laziness feels like a part of who you are, but honestly, fuck that. Do you really want to give up your success for the disinterest of a moment?

If your answer is no (it better be no, or you really need to get your priorities straight), let’s get to it. 

STEP ONE: BE HONEST WITH YOURSELF

“This class doesn’t even matter.” “I don’t care about my grades.” “I can finish this the day before.” Sound familiar? You might feel great now, but when you’re staring down at your report card later, it’ll feel like you just got punched. 

This is a cliche, but the greatest obstacle to your success is yourself - especially the lies you tell yourself! Sit yourself down and be honest about what you need to improve on. Be as blunt as you can, but for god’s sake, don’t throw yourself a pity party! There’s no use agonizing over what you can’t change. Instead, set realistic, achievable goals, and make a game plan. Struggling with math? Go to extra help. Behind in all your classes? Stay in for a couple nights and actually work. 

STEP TWO: STOP WITH THE FANCY SHIT

Now you know what your goals are, but maybe you want some inspiration, so you log on to tumblr and are instantly bombarded by all these beautiful, well lit shots of the most gorgeous bullet journals, planners, and notes. Impressive, right? Well, I’m gonna let you in on a little secret: they’re all useless! A simple phone planner works just as well, if not better, than a fancy agenda, because you’ll always have it on you, it’s not a hassle to carry around, and you don’t feel obligated to make it look pretty. 

Riddle me this, where are you going to find all this extra motivation to keep prettying up your bullet journal? To write all your notes in perfect, colour coded printing? There aren’t many times in life where taking the easy was out will actually benefit you, so take advantage! Stop wasting your time; get a phone planner and write your notes in your natural goddamn handwriting. 

STEP THREE: CLEAN YOUR ROOM

Yep, your entire room - not just your study space! This one can be put on the back burner for a bit if you’re on a really pressing deadline, but I wouldn’t recommend it. I’m notoriously messy, and if I don’t watch myself, I’d find myself in dirty-laundry-and-old-notes hell. A little bit of organized chaos is fine, I even encourage it! But try working when your desk is covered in mounds of paper and you have nowhere to put your laptop – it’s just not conducive to success. 

Keeping your entire room clean is a way to stave off stress, frustration, and even embarrassment, because nobody wants to show potential roommates how much of a mess they are. 

STEP FOUR: ACTUALLY WORK

Yeah, I know what you’re thinking: “actually work? Who does this girl think she is?” I’d probably think the same thing, except I’ve learned the valuable lesson of sucking it the hell up, and you will too. When you get home from work, grab a snack and work. When you have a free period, figure out what’s due and work. Stop reasoning yourself out of work: you’re not going to finish this later, and that will be on the test. There’s really not much to say about this one, because it’s the step that requires the most raw effort, and you’re really only going to find that within yourself. Tell yourself what’s at stake, and realize that, by setting the standard for your mediocrity now, you’re potentially trapping yourself in a cycle that will last for years. 

STEP FIVE: CUT YOURSELF SOME SLACK

Maybe you’ve been on top of your shit for a day, a week, or even a month, and that’s really great. But then… you fail. You miss a deadline or you bomb a test. So what do you do now? Do you allow yourself to fall back into your old habits? Fuck no! Everyone fails, even that studyblr with those perfect bullet journal photos and a perpetually clean study space. I’m going to tell you something that’ll sound really strange: you should value your failures, especially if you worked hard to avoid them. What?! Be HAPPY about failing when I actually TRIED? Yeah, you heard me right. If you don’t know how to handle failure, then when you inevitably experience it, your reaction will be much worse. 

Failing hurts, and boy, I know how embarrassing it can be. But learning how to deal with failure, and especially how to keep trying after it happens, is an invaluable lesson. 

STEP SIX: TREAT. YO. SELF.

Disclaimer: I’m not suggesting you treat yourself after the most basic of tasks, because please. Treat yourself when you know you goddamn well deserve it. Remember that “all work and no play makes jack a dull boy.” If all you do is study and do your homework, then, pardon my french, your life sucks. If you don’t have friends, play a video game! Eat an entire jumbo chocolate bar! Indulge in whatever the fuck you want, you deserve it. I’m someone that has trouble prioritizing future benefits over immediate gratification, so by allowing myself little pleasures, I save myself from crashing and burning. 

Hope these tips helped, but remember to take them with a grain of salt - you’re you and I’m me, and different things work for different people. Good luck!

First time a person has made me cry at this job

She walks in, I’m cheery as usual. I treated her like I would any other person. Said things I would’ve said to any other person asking me these question.

Me: Hello! :)
Her: Hi! Saw something really cute from outside. Oh here it is! *shows me* How much?
Me: I’m not sure, the tag is on the left sleeve :)
Her: $23, ill take it. *puts in on the counter*
Me: awesome :)
-couple minutes later-
Her: How much are these boots? There’s no tag.
Me: There’s one right on the bottom :)
Her: *sits in a chair to try them on* You’re real helpful….*total sarcasm while she gave me a death glare*

My jaw dropped and I looked at her puzzled. Then just sat there watching her because clearly she needed all my attention.

Her: Would you take a deal on these?
Me: It really depends. (It depends on how long ago we put them out, if there’s something wrong with them etc)
Her: Depends on what?
Me: What was the deal you had in mind?
-her friend walked in at this point and they started whispering. I heard her say to her friend, “this girl is a racist”. At the point I started shaking because I was just doing what I normally do. I was so confused.-

Her: See how there are stains all over the boots?
Me: I could do them for $35 instead of $40?
Her: $30.
Me: $35 is the lowest I can go.
Her: What’s your problem?
Me: *at this point I’m just looking at her with a neutral face trying not to freak out*
Her: Look at you. What’s wrong? *to her friend* look! She looks dangerous!“
Me: Listen, you made a rude, unnecessary comment that I did not appreciate and took offence to. I was trying to be nice, but you decided to make sarcastic remarks for no reason and I will not tolerate that.

Her: *paying for her stuff* well I’m done with this store.
Me: okay bye

As soon as she was out of my eyesight I burst into screaming tears. I apologized to the customers and they all said, “she was just a bag. You were fine don’t worry.”
My boss is proud of me for sticking up for myself. I feel better now. But omfg wtf was that

One thing i think that isnt really touched on is how amethyst for a lot of season 1 went more off-model than the rest and how it made her a much more expressive character. some of the individual shots like the one from Coach Steven may look weird but in the context of the episode she was very expressive about her excitement, which has never been matched for me by this kind of constantly chill and/or frustrated amethyst we see now. Similarly, the shot from tiger millionaire is a bit odd and off-model, but look how expressive she is!

this is in significant contrast to later episodes - in particular, the clear comparison between monster buddies and bismuth. amethyst is stood in the background not doing much in both, but in monster buddies her model is clearer, she doesn’t have weird gremlin arms (see peridot in room for ruby) and in general her pose and face make her much more expressive even if she’s doing nothing in the background!

This is the clear issue - off model happens in SU all the time, but when it happened early on it was beneficial to help with expressiveness, and the models were still well-drawn. Now, it adds nothing to the scene and just looks like laziness in the process.

Night Falls: Chapter 17

Pairing: Dean x Reader

Summary: After witnessing a murder, Y/N becomes a protected witness to FBI Agent Dean Winchester, who needs her help to do more than just solve one man’s murder.

Word Count: 3,057

Gif:

A/N: I really can’t believe we’re 17 chapters into this story! I really wasn’t sure if this idea would amount to much, and now, it may be the story I try to publish once I finish (and of course edit a billion times). Thank you all for supporting this story. Your support has definitely been a driving factor into keeping this story going (despite how slowly it’s going).

And I know this chapter is a little shorter than usual, but chapter 18 is a doozy and I want one long chapter for everything that’s about to happen. 

As usual, hit up @attractiverandomness with any tags you may need and send her a quick “thank you” for being so badass.

Night Falls Master List


Dean steps out of the room and pulls the door shut behind him, letting his head fall against the same wood he had you pressed against just a short while ago.

What the fuck did I just do? Dean runs a hand through his hair.

If he thought he was in deep shit before, he had no clue what the fuck kind of trouble he was in now.

Turns out, Bobby and Cas had every right to be worried.

They knew this was going to happen, yet Dean was dumb enough to think that between your piss poor attitude and the fact that you seemed just as annoyed by him as he was of you, that nothing would ever change between the two of you.

Sure, he had been more protective of you than he had been with any other witness, but what Bobby and Cas seemed to not get was that it had nothing to do with the fact that you were cute–okay, more than cute. But you represented the one thing he had been chasing his entire life; revenge.

Pain in the ass or not, he was going to fight with everything in him to keep you safe.

But between the bickering and backhanded comments, he began to see not just a witness who had been in the wrong place at the wrong time, but a woman, a strong woman, you took no bullshit and was unapologetic for it. You had taken this entire situation in stride, making the best of it by befriending your agents and even making them feel like you were apart of some strange little family. Hell, you had even gotten Ralph to like you, and that was a feat in and of itself. You had this way about you that just lit up a room whenever you walked by, and not even Zazel could make you feel small or weak.

You were much more than Dean ever imagined you would be, and he found himself going out of his way to be around you or make you smile. Despite that fact that he hadn’t felt this type of exhaustion since he was in training, he couldn’t find himself to leave you, not even for a day. Sure, you were the most important witness he would probably ever have, and Dean could tell Bobby and Cas that all day, but Dean knew that it was just a cover. He wanted to see you. Wanted to make sure you were safe. He would never forgive himself if something happened to you if he could have prevented it, and not just because the trial would potentially flop without you.

And he wasn’t blind; he saw the shift in you too–how you smiled when he walked into a room, how you sat closer to him on the couch when you watched tv, how you went to him with any fear you were having about this whole situation. Or the hungry glint that he’d seem to catch in Y/E/C eyes every time Cas stepped out of the room and it was the two of you alone.

But the problem was, what happened between you wasn’t just some hook up–not that he was the first agent to ever sleep with a witness. But what happened between the two of you felt so much more than that.

That was the problem. Because there was no way in hell that the two of you would be able to walk away from this and pretend that it meant nothing.

He had no idea what this meant for the two of you; this couldn’t happen again, no matter how amazing it was–the way you ground against him, your hips curling and bucking below him…

He shakes his head, clearing the memory.

He couldn’t be distracted like this, not with so much at stake.

The best thing for the two of you would be to try to pretend it never happened.

And not just because his job was at stake. Not just because everything he had been working towards from the night his mother was murdered could be taken away from him because of a moment of weakness.

What if someone had broken into the house while he was busy doing the damn horizontal bop with you?  He would have been found quite literally with his pants down and wouldn’t have been able to protect you–the one thing he suppose to do.

He let his feelings for you get in the way once. He couldn’t let it happen again. Not until Zazel was locked away and you were safe.

Welcome to the Kylux Cantina!

What? Who?

We’re a blog devoted to weekly drabble challenges for the Kylo Ren/Armitage Hux pairing! @badspacebabies is your mod.

What’s a drabble?

Used to be, a drabble was defined by a short piece of writing, 100 words exactly. For our purposes, we’re using drabble to mean any short ficlet responses to a prompt. Ideally, because of the platform, they should be tumblr-sized, meaning less than 1K, but if you want to take a prompt and really run with it, literally no one will stop you.

How’s this work?

Every Sunday, the blog will post a series of prompt challenges throughout the day, related to that week’s theme. If one strikes your fancy, you are encouraged to reblog the prompt post with your drabble added below! No time limits, no rules against going back and plumbing the depths of old prompts, and all ratings are allowed (just make sure to tag for all nsfw or potentially triggering content, use your good adult judgment). You can also submit your response to the cantina for posterity.

I’m an artist, can I do this too?

Yes! If a prompt is inspiring to you, the cantina welcomes artistic responses to prompts in the form of sketches, speedpaints, fully finished works, whatever!

Can I submit a prompt?

Absolutely. Please check the current week’s theme if you would like your prompt to be used, er, promptly. Otherwise, we will save your prompt for another week that best fits the theme, or for one of our open theme weeks! Please note that drabble prompts should be open-ended, not too detailed, and ideally be only a few words, a snippet of imagined dialogue, a picture, a line of poetry, a song lyric, etc. For example, if the week’s theme is Rainbow, you could submit a color, the word “spectrum,” an image, or the phrase “where troubles melt like lemon drops” (from the classic Garland song).

When will I know what the theme is?

On Mondays, we’ll post a call for prompts with the new theme.

Have any other questions? Concerns? Hit us up.

hey hello friends!! i’m excited to present a new original masterpost series, #studyingwithacdemic! my blog’s “tagline” has long been ‘study with me’, and now i’d like to make that a reality. in #studyingwithacdemic, i’ll be addressing many of the problems that students encounter in their studying journeys, and offering my personal tips on how to face them! 

some of these masterposts will be veeery specific while others will talk about a broader topic. however, all of them have one goal: to help you become the best student you can be! you can tag posts using these tips with either #heyacdemic or #studyingwithacdemic and i’ll be sure to reblog <3

with that aside, here’s the very first masterpost: studying a subject you hate. i know hate is a very strong word, but there are some subjects you really just can’t stand. however, there are a few different kinds of hatred:

  1. hatred because it bores you: if you don’t enjoy learning about a subject, that can certainly complicate things a little.
  2. hatred because it confuses you: sometimes you don’t like a subject because it’s not your strong suit and it frustrates you to try and understand it!
  3. hatred because of previous failures: there are some subjects i don’t like because i failed a test on it, or something of that sort, whereas i enjoy the subjects i’ve always done well on. past mistakes may influence your opinions on a subject!
  4. hatred for no reason: u serious mate?? pfft.

there’s really no set, foolproof method to tackle subjects you don’t enjoy, so in this masterpost i’ll be addressing how to study for subjects that you dislike based on why you dislike them. ok ok, without further ado:

HATRED BECAUSE IT BORES YOU

  • use a rewards system!! if you really cannot get yourself to enjoy a subject, forcing yourself to like the subject won’t get very far. however, forcing yourself to like studying it is slightly more doable.
    + set up a way to reward yourself for bravely facing that awful subject
    + after two hours of focused studying, give yourself a pack of gummy bears or something. give yourself an incentive to study!
    + bonus points if the reward is good for you. maybe reward yourself a 30 minute run if you finish studying, cause that’ll boost your energy, be healthier than gummy bears, and be a cool reward for studying :)

  • study in different ways! have some diversity in the ways that you study!
    + experiment with timelines, mindmaps, annotating, etc. to keep things interesting while you’re taking notes.
    + also don’t hesitate to stray from your textbook and into the world wide web of info: look up youtube videos, podcasts, websites, articles, etc. to study rather than just sticking with what your teacher gives you!  
    + when you’re reviewing something, don’t just stare at your notes, turn it into a game or something!! make it fun.
    + if you’re always trying new ways to study a subject, who knows, maybe one will click and you’ll start to enjoy it :)

  • associate with things you enjoy! hard to hate something that’s similar to so many things you like, right?
    + for example: you hate english? look, you’ve just shunned all of your favorite books and songs and writing in general. you hate science? sorry, my friend, it’s because of science that you’re breathing (biology) and cake exists (chemistry)
    + ps: sorry if i got those subjects wrong, i haven’t taken chem or bio yet!

  • study with the pomodoro method! here is a great masterpost by aza (@etudiance) about the pomodoro method, i really recommend taking a look!
    + this works great for subjects that bore you because you’d be studying for short blocks and have breaks in between, meaning you wouldn’t be stuck staring at a textbook for 3 hours *shudders*
    + just make sure that the time you’re spending studying is really focused studying, not just passively flipping through notes.

  • study with a friend! especially if they LOVE that subject. studying with a friend (productively) can make subjects so much more bearable!
    + as long as it’s actually studying, and not.. taking selfies or talking about unrelated subjects ////toootally haven’t done that before ahem ahem////
    + plus, if your friend adores the subject you abhor, maybe their enthusiasm will rub off on you!

HATRED BECAUSE IT CONFUSES YOU

  • ask your teacher for help! i swear by this one: teachers are (usually) great people who want you to succeed! no they are not evil creatures making you fail your classes for the heck of it!
    + arrange office hours or something with your teachers to go over content you’re struggling with. this is a great time to get to know your teacher as a friend and you’ll be approaching the material at a pace you’re comfortable with
    + if you’re scared of talking to your teacher (we all know the feeling!), you can always just correspond via email, and if they think you need a private meeting, they’ll most likely suggest it
    + if your teacher gives study guides or premade note thingies, always always always go through them thoroughly because that’s exactly what they think you need to study!!

  • don’t hesitate to raise your hand! everybody hates asking questions in class because they’re afraid they’ll sound dumb. don’t.
    + ask with pride because somebody out there needs you to ask that question for them! and even if you think you hear snickering (spoiler alert: that’s your imagination, silly), imagine it as a heroic deed for that-one-kid-who-needed-to-know-the-answer-to-that-particular-question-but-didn’t-bravely-raise-their-hand-like-you-did. congratulations, my friend.
    + teachers are totally fine with going through material again because if you are struggling to understand something, that’s their fault because they’re supposed to be teaching you. 
    + it’s better to ask during class than struggle on a test.

  • basically, reach out to other people. if you have trouble with a subject and are starting to resent it because of that, the answer is not to self-study and cry over things, the answer is to ask for help.
    + i know because i basically wing everything and there are times when i want to slap myself for not asking a teacher, friend, or my parents for help beforehand.
    + don’t be afraid to search online, but don’t rely on it either. if you’re scraping through your english class by living on sparknotes / cliffnotes, etc. that’s clearly not going to work. it’s okay to use resources like that sometimes to help you understand content you’re really struggling with, but using those ideas (aka not your own ideas) in your homework, etc. is plagiarism. nuh-uh, not ok, don’t do it! ask for help!!
    + also the studyblr community is great!! send in asks because we will all want to give you love and support: and even if we don’t know the answer, we can direct you to another person or masterpost that can help. some people to ask are emma (@elkstudies), grace (@gracelearns), sareena (@studyign), ann (@educaticn), seo (@tbhstudying) and kimberly (@kimberlystudies) – they are absolutely lovely and seem to always have an answer <3 or you can check out @studyblrindex to find someone who studies the subject!! or just ask any studyblr honestly! feel free to ask me as well, i’d love to help if i can ;o;

  • use methods that work for you! even though diversity in study methods is great for subjects that bore you, stick with the stuff that always works for you when you’re confused.
    + do you usually get good grades when you annotate while you read? great, keep doing that!
    + don’t make the mistake of sticking with methods that don’t work, though: if annotating while you read just confuses you even more, it’s time to stop and try something new.

  • just keep working on it! hatred due to lack of understanding of the subject is probably the easiest to fix because if you work hard enough, the subject gets easy and woah omg, more bearable <3 it may seem tough now but you can do it!!
    +
    check out my motivation tag for some stuff to keep you going!
    + i personally think @chibird’s super adorable drawings are great for boosting your morale if you’re feeling down / unmotivated :) give jackie a follow!!!

HATRED BECAUSE OF PREVIOUS FAILURES

  • don’t doubt yourself! you get one bad grade, then you think you’re just doomed to bad grades in the class for the rest of the semester. then you really do get bad grades because you’ve just given up. don’t let that happen!!
    + the worst thing you can do is constantly remind yourself about what you did wrong!
    + also, most of the time your “failure” wasn’t even as bad as you think!! even if it was something public and embarrassing, the only person who still remembers it is you.

  • spend less time thinking about your “mistake / failure / incident” and more time assessing what you can do better next time! this one’s a biggie. instead of resenting a subject because something bad happened that one time, it’s better to see how you can prevent it from happening again.
    + giving up isn’t an option here!!!
    + maybe for the test you got an F on, you tried a new study method that definitely didn’t work. all you have to do is stop using that method!
    + this will also take your mind off the fact that you “failed” (again, you probably didn’t), and lead you to think of it more positively (because now you know what to avoid doing in the future!)

  • don’t overdo it! one time in english class, i basically made this really dumb mistake and i cried and was miserable about it for a whole year. then, i made myself attempt to memorize the dictionary because i forgot the meaning of one word. 
    + that was a huge waste of time for me, constantly reminded me of the mistake i made, kept me miserable, made me feel guilty when i couldn’t memorize a word, didn’t actually help my vocabulary, and was basically a big, fat pfffft.
    + the lesson to learn from this is: assessing what you can do better next time DOES NOT MEAN to overdo things. it just means to learn from your mistakes and try to improve <3

  • re-inspire yourself! most of the time, this subject wasn’t one you always hated. it was just that one dumb thing that made you feel miserable and queasy to even think about the subject. don’t let something so small ruin a whole subject for you!
    + check out my failure tag for some posts about dealing with failure or disappointment in the academic world!!
    + search for posts in the studyblr community related to that subject to see how wonderful that subject is! :)

HATRED BECAUSE HATRED. 

  • there’s no way to make yourself not hate something if you don’t know why you hate it. ask yourself why you hate that subject so much! chances are, you don’t hate it at all!
    + try and talk / rant to someone about it (you can drop me an ask with a rant about a subject you hate – i’d be happy to try and help or just be a person you can rant to). maybe the reason will come out in the process of ranting.
    + or just journal / write for a little bit about the subject. sometimes letting your emotions loose can help!

alright, that is it for this first masterpost!! i really hope you found this helpful, since these are all my personal tips, no research or anything. if you have any questions, want to talk, want to yell at me for a bad masterpost, want to chat about your day, have any suggestions for future #studyingwithacdemic masterposts, want to request a future masterpost etc. etc. just drop me an ask and i’ll answer asap to the best of my abilities! <3 thanks for reading and have an absolutely magnificent day, xoxo hannah

can i just say that like. if ur a questioning girl, u can’t “appropriate” the lesbian label. like it’s not possible. calling urself a lesbian when ur not 100% sure u are one to try it out and see how it fits is 100% okay. you’re not hurting anyone by doing this. even if u turn out to bi/pan or realize that u were wrong and it’s not the label for you, that’s okay. “lesbian” can be a really scary word for a lot of us at first and its normal to feel unsure about it sometimes. trying it out and taking however long you need to be comfortable with it is totally good and fine and anyone who says differently can fuck themselves.

Why?

Why can’t y'all just ship your damn ships? Who gives a flying fuck about who OTHER people ship. Is it you?! Nah. Are you dead?! No. So stop giving a fuckkk. I’m honestly tired, irritated, and annoyed when i see fellow shippers bashing other ships. Like, you spend so much time talking about the other ship. Are you sure you don’t ship them?! Considering how much you talk about them, one would think that that was actually your otp. Stop tagging unrelevant ships into your ships. Stop bashing other ships. You absolutely hate it when others bash yours right?! So, why the heck are you doing the exact same thing? Quit your yip-yap and ship peacefully. DAMN.


Here i am ranting about ships, again😒. But i wouldn’t be doing this if I didn’t feel the really strong need to do this.

ComiCon

Request: Hello. I just went to comic con.And I was wondering if you could do a Bucky/SebastianStan x reader. Where the Avengers or the actors cosplay as their characters(It’s your choice.And no one knows it’s them.They just think they are really good cosplayers)go to comic con for fun(Tonys/RDJs idea).The reader cosplays as female Bucky.She sees The real Bucky(not knowing its really him)and asks for a picture with him.Bucky finds her really attractive.You can make up the rest😊btw love your work❤❤

Blog Tag: @leah5684

A/N: Fem!Reader. I’ve never been to a con, but I’m going in March to my first, so I may rewrite this later when I find out what one is really like or do another one. I’m not sure, yet. Open for a part two if anyone wants one!

Warnings: I don’t know how ComiCon really goes

Keep reading

There’s so much sweet fluff in this one, and considering Halloween just ended and we’re all high on sweets, I think it’s fitting. Enjoy!

Everything bolded is Halloween or autumn themed/centric.

There are so many great fics out there that need to be recognized! If you find something you like on this list, be sure to show it the appreciation it deserves with likes, reblogs, and messages to the author! I hope you can find something to enjoy, and remember that if you’d like me to see your work, be sure to tag me in it!

Just a reminder that no all/mostly smut fics will be added. If they’re part of a series I will link non-smut parts.

Fluff

  • Insta Love by @waywardlullabies (Reader x Sam) - This was such a cool idea! I loved how you described everything really well, and those last couple lines of dialogue were super cute!
  • Turn of Events by @moonlitskinwalker (Reader x Sam) - I loved this one so much! The reader’s thoughts interspersed throughout it made it super relatable, and I’m always a sucker for fics where the boys (especially Sam) are knights in shining armor in regular, everyday situations like cars breaking down! Also, can we talk about Sam driving the Impala? H-O-T, HOT!
  • Halloween Slumber Party by @torn-and-frayed (Reader x Dean) - I love your Dad!Dean fics, I really do. You write Dad!Dean and Jojo so well. Her costume was so cute and I think you did such an amazing job describing everything! The ending was so adorable and I loved it a lot.
  • Imagine Saving a Kid During a Hunt and When You Go Get Some Food, He Starts Talking to Dean About the Hunter’s Crush On You by @curliesallovertheplace (Reader x Dean) - Well typing that out was definitely a task, but it wasn’t a task to read this imagine. It was super cute, and the kid was just to die for! I loved how you wrote his lines and expressions, they were super cute.
  • Driving the Impala by @chelsea-winchester (Reader x Dean) - This fic was super duper cute, and I think that this is definitely something Dean would do for someone he really, truly cared about. You wrote it so well, thanks for tagging me!
  • Wagon Wheel by @waywardlullabies (Reader x Sam) - This was so, so cute! I loved the ending, of course, but the journey was just as fun! Sam is so thoughtful when it comes to special occasions and making things meaningful, and I think you portrayed that really well.
  • Masked Monkey With a Machete by @percywinchester27 (Reader x Sam) - This was so cute and super relatable for me! I’d be the kind of person who wouldn’t tell Sam it was my turn to pick a movie if it made him happy, and Sam’s response to the reader made my heart melt. Great job!
  • It Was Always You by @ruined-by-destiel (Reader x Dean) - This one was short and sweet, and I loved it. I loved the whole thing about the shirt, and the line where Dean says she looks better in it gets me every time.
  • Noisy Neighbors by @jotink78 (Reader x Sam) - I’ve never seen a fic with this premise before and it was so unique! I loved it! Not only was it funny, but it was fluffy, and that made it amazing. Great job and thanks for tagging me!
  • Imagine Cas Dressing Your Son for Halloween by @sup3rnaturalunkn0wn (Reader x Cas) - I love seeing Dad!Cas, especially when they’re canonical! They’re hard to find and even harder to write, and I think you did a great job with this! The costume you picked for their son is perfect, and I loved it.
  • It’s a Burrito, Sweetie by @teamfreewill-imagine (Reader x Sam) - This was freaking hilarious, I loved it! Not only is Sam/the reader/their daughter’s relationship adorable, but the relationship between their daughter and Dean was so, so cute. Great job!
  • One Taste’s a Myth by @waywardlullabies (Reader x Sam) - This one was super relatable for me, and I wish that I had had a Sam of my own when I was in high school, or even now! The whole thing was super cute and I loved it. I could easily picture it all in my head you wrote it so well!

In-Between

  • Murphy’s Law by @writingthingsisdifficult (Reader x Sam) - I felt so bad whenever something happened, and the ending was such a surprise to me when it was revealed why everything had been happening! I loved this, great job!

Series Works

Links in the series section are always to the masterlist, or if unavailable, the latest post will be linked.

  • Chocolate Cupcakes by @crowleysplaythings (Nanny!Reader x Single Dad!Sam) - I loved the conclusion to this series! It was so good, and I loved all the twists and turns it took along the way to get to that point. Great job!
  • Choosing You by @writingbeautifulmen (Reader x Dean) - This Rockstar AU is killing me! I love the conflict between the two different bands and I can’t wait to see how the reader and Dean’s relationship plays out, especially with that whole talk from Cas that Dean got!
  • Time to Realize by @loveitsallineed (Reader x Cas) - I love, love, love this series! Seeing Cas and the reader be domestic and non-supernaturally is adorable, and I can’t wait to see where this goes! (Note: The next part of the series is actually out already, but it contains smut so I won’t link it, nor have I read it. I’m sure it’s great! You can find it by going to Karolina’s Masterlist.)
  • 90 Days of Autumn by @jpadjackles (Reader x Sam) - I’m still loving this series and I get so excited whenever I see that you’ve tagged me in a new part! It’s super cute, and I love that you do have little bits of angst sprinkled in here and there just to give it more depth. I’m excited to see where they’re relationship is headed, especially with the new development in the most recent part!

Non-Reader Works

  • Middle of a Memory by @tony-steve-sam-and-dean-writing (Megstiel) - This was such a cute little Megstiel fic! The last couple lines hit me hard, and telling it from Cas’ perspective made it unique. Great job!
  • Why Won’t He Break by @parvasilvi (Sam) - This was so, so cool. I loved all the reflections on past events and I think you wrote it really well. It was so heartbreaking at the same time, though, and it made me tear up again just thinking of everything Sam went thought. 
Ace Attorney x PQ

I’ve been meaning to draw some Blackquill and Athena for a while now after I finished AA6. I never really appreciated Blackquill as much before then. I mean sure, I loved his shenanigans in AA5, but AA6 reminded me how much I loved them AND made me appreciate the weeb that he is~ =w=

I originally can’t decide what to draw… actually, I have a LOT I wanted to draw, but I can’t decide which to do. Then heck one day I was just gonna do a chibi just cause, when I somehow ended up attempting a PQ style :P

It’s been a while since I’ve drawn some proper art, took me quite long to finish this ^^”

Also I’ve been addicted to Mystic Messenger as of late, so I managed to work on this on-off while I wait for new chats to pop in =3= In a way, MM got me back to drawing….? Though I’ve been sleep deprived for the past few days cause……. yeah.

I don’t think one can really articulate their thoughts on life through writing, but I’ve been asked to try, so here it goes. I think we’re all connected. Maybe not in a way that makes much sense, but I don’t think anyone is ever truly alone. You, reading this, are not alone. We may never meet, I may never be more than a character in a story to you, but that doesn’t matter. I think that when we pour a little bit of ourselves into paper and ink, those stories pour a bit of themselves back into us, too, and that makes us closer than you can imagine. Life is strange and difficult. You’ll sometimes feel completely lost. You’ll fall in love with the voices in your head. You’ll look in all the right places at all the wrong times for something that you think will make you happy. You’ll be forced to go through so much pain. But just know that, through it all, you are not alone. I’m with you, the character in the story that you poured a bit of yourself into when you took the time to read. I’m with you.

You are loved, you are loved, you are loved.

Hauntingly, Ch. 49

This is so beautiful.

(Maybe we can never completely separate fictional characters from our own perspective and understanding—can we ever separate anything from that, really?—and they may not really reciprocate what we feel about them (be it love or hate), but that feeling itself is enough to change us. The more we pour our life, our time, our perception, our love and hate into the characters, the more we feel about them, then the more we are different from our past selves who had not poured and had not felt. And who knows, maybe that will lead to other changes. Maybe we’ll one day feel differently towards another incident, or make a different decision, because of what we’ve read and felt before? The characters are with us and we are not alone. I feel very blessed, or loved, to have met the characters I love.)
