Hi I was just wondering what gwyns favorite sweets/desserts in the fae world are i remember you answering me a few years ago when i asked about the best of broken resolutions with Australian sweets and just sweets for human gwyn but i'm just curious what sweets deserts are in the fae world. x thankyou i hope you feel okay and don't run out of spoons x

Gwyn tends to prefer sweets from the human world because they’re often so packed with like, a ridiculous amount of sugar and fat.

But he loves things that are just really sweet. Sponge cakes slathered with icecream and well decorated, straight up marzipan, just about anything that is like pure sugar masquerading as something else (100s and 1000s, jubes, poprocks etc.) I mean Gwyn would drink straight squash/cordial powder mix if he knew it existed (he doesn’t).

In the fae world, flavour tends to be privileged over straight up sugar. Gwyn can appreciate fine craftsmanship, but it wouldn’t be his preference if someone asked. (Gwyn sort of prefers the meat of the fae world, and the sugar in the human world).

As for what sweets are in the fae world, that pretty much stretches as far as your imagination can go. I mean there’s Mages of flavour and food, and we’ve already established (in The Drawn Bead I think) that certain fruits can be evocative of feelings as well as flavours. There are cakes that aren’t just about tasting like a pure lemon, but also reminding people of the coming of spring, but concentrated, in a single slice.

Gwyn’s more like ‘fuck that shit give me the whole cake I don’t want to feel spring I just want the sugar.’

why is everybody so upset people ship clalec? so far we had three episodes filled with angry looks, banter and sassy remarks, not to mention “you’re upset by the way jace is looking at her” and “if you really feel that way about her why did you help us”, generally alec being lowkey obsessed with clary and, let’s be real, some real chemistry game going on.

i’m personally not so big on hate-to-love relationships, but how are you all so surprised people who have not read the books jumped on clalec like thirsty wanderers on an oasis.

Prompt: ShinKai AU: Thief Shinichi Thank you <3

For:  Pairing + AU = Three Sentence Very Short Fic


Shinichi froze, his hand hovering just above the jewel case.  There was someone else in the room with him.  He spun around, pulling out his dart gun, but the man strode forward calmly, hands up and face shadowed by the brim of his white top hat.

“Now, now, Baron, there’s no need for such hostility,” the man said, his voice smooth and confident.  “After all, I came here to help.  You have crows on your tail, did you know?”

Shinichi’s blood ran cold.  How had they found him?  And how did this man…?  “Who are you?”

The man took another step forward, his lips pulling up into a sharp grin.  “An enemy of the crows.  I believe that makes me your friend.”  Tilting his head, he fixed his gloves.  “I go by many names.  The magician under the moonlight, the Heisei Lupin…”

“Kaitou Kid,” Shinichi breathed.  His mother had spoken highly of the man, but he was…  “You’re supposed to be dead.”

What he could see of Kid’s expression grew darker.  “I get that a lot.  And yet, here I stand.  Will you work with me, or shall I leave?”

Shinichi hesitated, but only for a moment.  The anger in every line of Kid’s form was so familiar that it was hard to distrust him.  If this was the son of the original as Shinichi suspected…  “I’ll work with you, Kid.  We can find vengeance together.”

Kid’s closed the distance between them, standing much too close for comfort.  Shinichi felt his face heat.  “I look forward to it, Baron.”

Dang it Pia hi anon that asked about wikia. I sent that before I'd finished GT and now I'm ch 9 of COFT and only now has it really truly hit me how much work it would be. Like you bring so many different kinds of mythologies in! And the little backstories that you drop are incredible. Don't get me wrong, I'm still *very* determined to see this wikia through and I'll update you when I have something sizeable to show, but man this is going to be a challenge. I really love mythology though1/2

and I’m Filipino and I’ve never even heard of tigbalan or the aswang before this and it’s so interesting! I’ve read mostly Greek myth and a few myths/fables here and there from other cultures and I never knew where to start with others so reading your series has actually been like, a really educational experience for me? And that’s actually why I want to do this wikia. It’s like my note taking guide you know? And also, your vocabulary! I’m really learning so much. I love it. Thank you.

Hallo! :D

Okay firstly, like, the Philippines has amazing folklore and it’s so crappy that a lot of folks don’t know that because of the Eurocentrism of folklore in general (even my work is really Eurocentric, but I try and step away from just ‘oh wait another pixie’ every now and then - finding the line between ‘can I use this in a fictional story and be respectful’ and ‘but I don’t want to only write about the world’s Eurocentric fae’ is tricky, and I’m sure I don’t always get it right, but I like to try). So I’m gonna hook you up with some links because omg, man, the most amazing creatures and beings exist in Filipino folklore, which is often a mix of Malay, Christian and Indigenous narratives, depending on where you’re looking.

So here’s a gateway page on mythological creatures (the kinara I love reading about but I’ve never written about them), and here’s another on overall mythology and cosmology, including information about deities. I kind of wish they taught this stuff in schools. Like, I live in Australia, and I would have really enjoyed learning more about local Indigenous lore (that which is sanctioned as being okay for outsiders to learn about, because there’s a lot that’s not, which is completely understandable). Instead, y’know, we get taught way more about Greek myths - or Celtic ‘faeries.’ And that’s all well and good, but the world is a far richer place.

The wikia would be intense, but I’m sure other people would also help and contribute? Hell, depending on where I’m at with writing, even I might, lol.

And there are so many different types of mythology, folklore, cosmology etc. It’s humbling and amazing. I’m so so glad you enjoy that side of things too, omg. So glad. <3 I hope you’re doing well!

Hello! I have something for the Kuroshitsuji timeline. Easter of 1889 was April 21st, that is, THE NEXT DAY after the ship sank?! And Sebastian is completely healed/everyone is in festivities. I always assumed it'd taken him longer to heal from something so lethal, and that Ciel/the Midfords would want to rest but...I guess not!

Good question! :D

I assumed the Easter chapter took place on April 21 because Sebastian said

“Today is Easter”

and according to this list Easter in 1889 (in real world) was April 21.

But you’re right, judging from Sebastian and Ciel’s conversation at the beginning of ch66 it seems this chapter took place a few days or weeks after the sinking of Campania, so maybe Easter in 1889 in Kuro-verse wasn’t the 21st but on a later date! :D

  • What people mean: "I am ignorant of dog body language and uneducated on dog behavior and I don't know how to read a dog's stress signals to see the subtle warnings that a dog is getting uncomfortable and reaching its threshold and about to lash out aggressively."

Prompt: “You’re always wrapping your arms around me in lines.”

Character: Bucky Barnes

Warning: Angst


You often took Bucky and the others out regularly for shopping, while Tony always complained and said he could get other people to do it, you much preferred doing it yourself and you knew that Steve and Bucky also quite liked the normalcy and ability to walk around and look at new things even if Tony didn’t appreciate it. As such more often than not the only person who was always guaranteed to join you was Bucky. 

He’d taken to hiding his arm in public, unhappy with the attention which generally was a mixture between sympathy and angry, it was taking time, but you knew that eventually the public would be more comfortable with him, maybe finally appreciate what he’s doing now to make up for what he couldn’t not do all those years. 

But there was always one key feature to these shopping trips with Bucky, not the types of food you bought, or the way he carried most of the bags, but the need to hold you. It was surprising, mostly because he wasn’t like that at the tower, in fact he was incredibly opposed to touch on that turf. Yet, shopping trips were filled with a constant sort of touch, whether he gripped your hand and followed behind you like a child, or stood especially close to you.

But the one touch that never changed was the way in which he stood behind you in line for the cashier, he always wrapped both his arms around you (both being key because he was always so cautious with his left and despite knowing that he had total control worried that he’d be too harsh with it). He’d settle his face in your shoulder, almost hiding it like a child, and when you moved he’d move with you in a waddle like fashion. It often got odd looks, but you didn’t mind it…you were just curious as to why he always seemed to do it, was there a reason? His behaviour in a queue verses his behaviour in at home was so incredibly different that it often took you by complete surprise. 

“Hey, Buck?” You were twisting you hands, stood a respectful distance away from him where he was drinking a cup of coffee. 

“Yeah?” You’d never get over how deep Bucky’s voice was or how perfectly preserved his Brooklyn accent was after all these years, because this man could slip into Russian and a million other languages with perfect accents so incredibly easily and then just as easily slip back out into the very first accent that James Buchanan Barnes ever had.

“I have a question…You’re always wrapping your arms around me in lines…and I just was wondering why?” There was a flash of something vulnerable in his blue eyes and for a moment you were certain he wouldn’t answer, that he’d turn you away and refuse.

“I…I don’t like big crowds, I feel like…like I might do something or they might do something, I don’t feel secure…but you ground me and holding you makes me feel safe, in control, and I know that you’d never let me hurt people…and that makes feel grounded and anchored and it makes having someone breathe down my neck bearable, I guess…” The whole time he was rubbing the back of his neck, refusing to meet your eyes as if he was embarrassed…

“You don’t have to come shopping with me if you feel that way, I-” 

“No! I enjoy it! I just…the crowds thing takes sometime…” The urgency with which he spoke made you jump, his voice grew softer noticing this, the distance between the two had been slowly growing, you knowing that he was willing to let you nearer. 

“Okay, thank you for answering me, James, and…and i’m glad I can anchor you like that…I want to be able to always help like that. I care about you.” You did. You cared about him so much that at times it scared the hell out of you because he was Bucky and you were you and could either of you really afford for you to get so attached…but could you avoid it? No, this was a man who loved going to the farmer’s market to pick fruits, who gave little half-smiles that were unsure because he wanted to be approachable but it was still something he was learning, who would bring you a hot water bottle when your stomach hurt, and who would joke with Steve as if he’d never left 70 years ago. And it was with that that you knew it was unavoidable caring for Bucky because he was magnetic and had a gravitational pull that drew you in, and a quiet charisma where at times you’d see what must have been the pre-Winter Soldier Bucky breaking through with smirks, and teasing comments, and winks…and it made you care without even trying.

“I care about you too.” And it made those words even more meaningful because this man was so scared of himself at times, scared of caring, scared of closeness, and yet this brilliant, wonderful man cared about you even in the slightest way and that…that was amazing and heart string pulling and had you wanting him to hold you at the tower like he did in public.

So, I've heard some people theorize that part of Bmblb sample is Yang and another part is Blake. Do you think its a "duet" (as much as you can get with one singer potentially portraying two characters), or is it just all Yang being disastrously gay?

well, from the samples we’ve heard, i don’t think so, Casey doesn’t really seem to alter her voice for the different verses - so it does seem to be wholly from one perspective, but then there’s the lines like “now the flowers are in bloom, and you’ve chased away my darkness and gloom“ and like, that could easily be from Blake’s perspective, because that is very similar to something Gray said on the volume 2 commentary track, about how Yang lights up the shadows Blake finds herself in

i think it might be more obvious in the whole track if it’s supposed to be one or two people, but either way, at least one person is being disastrously gay

Send me a ship and I’ll give you my (brutally) honest opinion on it

Ah yes, the ship that must not be named. Or that I like to call err0ri because it’s like an error in the matrix or idk. I’m not directly answering the ask because I don’t want it to show up in the search and have any brats in my inbox lol.
Alright, sit down, my child because this turned out so long, holy shit X”D

Tbh this ship never made any sense to me, and I was baffled when I joined the fandom and found out that it’s the biggest/most popular ship in the fandom. Like wtf the wrong with y’all?? First of all there is the obvious age gap. Why you gotta turn Levi into a pedo? He just doesn’t strike me as the guy that would fall for a teenager. He might care for them as a father figure and superior because he’s empathetic. But romance? Never. “But it’s only fiction!!!!!!!!!!!” Have you seen how teenager boys act nowadays? How can you look at someone as immature as Eren and think he would be able to take care of a man in his 30s irl? You wouldn’t. And idk what should be so different in the snk verse. Eren is immature and egoistic and definitely not, NOT. AT. ALL. suited to take care of someone like Levi who went through so much shit, grew up underground and lost so many people that were dear to him. They are on totally different levels. But there is more to it than just the age gap. There is a total lack of chemistry. I just don’t see it! But the worst is that the whole ship is built on an act of violence. How can abuse be the base for a ship? When I joined the fandom in 2013 it was totally a thing in err0ri fanart that Levi would beat Eren up before anything romantic or sexual happened. It looked like violence was a foreplay for them and that’s simply disgusting. Abuse was heavily romanticized and played down in this fandom. But it was just a trick to get Eren into the Scouting Legion right? Also it was the plan of Erwin, the evil guy that stands in the way of this ~dream ship~. Let’s just ignore how Levi did not only beat Eren a second but also a third time. The second time was just Levi’s way of bonding with his new squad, right? Lmao this was such a fucked up “meta” post that I read. For the third time they couldn’t even make any excuses. They just simply ignore it. Like basically everything else that happens in canon. This ship is so damn ooc. It’s like they are two completely different characters that just coincidentally look exactly like Eren and Levi. This fandom is an expert in mischaracterizing characters and I’m also talking about third parties, like every other character that could come in the way of the ship is a potential danger, an abuser and rapist. Maybe it’s because most shippers are very young and just see Eren as a self insert. Maybe they haven’t written many fics and that’s why they can’t get the characterization right. Who knows, maybe I would’ve fallen for this ship too when I was 15. (Though I was always into height differences, so who knows?) However, there are also enough people that are not teenagers or even around Levi’s age that ship him with Eren. I honestly can’t come up with any logical reason why you would ship these two. I don’t understand it and I honestly don’t want to. The only reason I can somewhat understand is “they are my favorite and second favorite character so I just want to see them together and fuck canon, I make up my own canon/AU”. Or if someone ships them for the ~aesthetics~. I don’t see these aesthetics, but tastes are different.

I gotta admit that in the beginning I was just unfazed by this ship and felt just indifferent. I didn’t mind if it showed up on my dash, I scrolled past it and sometimes even took a second to appreciate the art itself even if I didn’t like what it portrayed. But the more time passed the more I’ve learned how nasty the shippers are. Istg the shippers made me hate this ship with a burning passion. Now if any err0ri shows up on my dash, I get physically sick. I totally wish I could go back to indifference instead of feeling like puking, but I can’t. I’ve seen too much shit. And I’m totally aware that there are normal shippers, and that other ships have black sheeps in their flock too. But there are just so many err0ri shippers that can’t stay in their damn line. They have to take art of other ships and turn change Levi’s partner into Eren. They have to leave nasty comments under eru/ri art like “I think you meant to draw Eren as Levi’s husband instead of Erwin” or that the artist drew a rape scene under a simple nsfw drawing. And don’t get me started on the shit that goes on in the eru/ri tag on AO3. Why do so many writers have to tag their err0ri fics as eru/ri? Istg no matter when I check the tag, there are always 20-25% err0ri fics. I’m so fucking tired of this shit. I don’t want to see it! NO ONE goes into the eru/ri tag to see this endgame err0ri crap. Especially not if all of them turn Erwin into a monster. Aren’t they tired of reading their own same shit over and over again? Can’t they come up with anything new? Why does it always have to be Erwin who is the bad ex and Eren the knight on a white horse who rescues Levi? Levi is no fucking damsel in distress. He would never let Erwin abuse him and he’s definitely not unable to defend himself. He doesn’t need a third person to get him out of there, especially not someone as unsuited as Eren lol. But I‘m repeating myself and already talked enough about mischaracterization. I just wish they would take a random OC instead or just stop to tag their fics as eru/ri if it’s just a past relationship and not the endgame. And NO, eruri/ren is NOT the solution. That’s the dumbest thing I’ve ever heard. If I already hate err0ri, I definitely don’t want to drag Erwin into this shit as well. Leave him out of it. I know multishippers exist. I don’t understand how you can ship both of them when eru/ri is basically perfect while err0ri is the bad kind of trash, but ok. But I’ve never got along with those kind of multishippers. I talked to some in the past but it never ended well. So I prefer to avoid any people that are shipping err0ri tbh. Oh and one last thing… why do so many of them are such apologists? Whenever they are confronted with the “pedo argument” (yes, I’m aware that pedophilia is the wrong term and it should be actually hebephilia/ephebophilia but most people use pedophilia as a synonym for a minor/adult relationship), they get so defensive and aggressive and try to find stupid excuses why this ship is not problematic. Suddenly Eren is so mature because he’s in the military and that automatically makes him an adult. But once he has to face punishment for insubordination he’s a sweet child that doesn’t know any better. That’s so fucking pathetic and hypocritical. Just admit that you like a problematic ship and that’s it. It’s not that hard isn’t it?

Thanks for your ask, and sorry that this got so long :”D

The Skyline was a Witness

by Pia Francisco (@piahautea​)

Synopsis:

Evenings are never wallowed in with sunlight. Everything’s always dark. Only a slice of the whole is bathed with the warm light coming from the sky. Everything else is dazed. But that night, I found you. A beautiful boy who tried stitching together my broken parts. It’s impossible, I know. Because how can you let yourself fall in love with your heart still fresh from the wreckage? I can’t tell love from right, or right from love. But that night, the horizon was in favor of us. And if it wasn’t love, it must have been something close to it. Only the night could tell because it was, after all, watching us figure it out ourselves. (Caution: ‘Short’ story ahead)


Here. This is where I found you.

The rooftop of my apartment building. Saturday night. 11:05 PM.

You sat on one of those metal benches. You were wrapped around in black from head to toe. Your face was looking skyward. You slipped your empty hand off your jaw and you rested it on top of your knee. Your jawline. It looked like it could scar my hands if I tried to touch it. I meant that in a good way, of course. It was well-chiseled.  Like you were made for museums. The other hand held a cigarette and I could tell just how much you’ve been meaning to throw it off to the ground. Not to the rooftop grounds, though. The twenty-floors-below sidewalk ground. But of course, you wouldn’t.

Gang Verse

( a kinda plotted verse w/ @elvcn-king )


Bard was the type of person that had the strangest sort of luck – strange enough that he wondered whether it was either fortuitous or misfortune that controlled his life. However, it was in this moment that he found himself in the worse sort of situation. He  was walking home one evening after a late-night run to the nearest grocery for some nachoes that he wanted to make that night because really, working for a shitty boss && being a single dad 24/7 really takes a toll on a guy. It was through luck && an unlikely situation that Bard managed to meet Thranduil, an infamous crime boss in their city. The details of their initial meeting was somewhat unclear because Bard was sure that he was too scared to actually remember. However, he somehow got employed to be an errand boy for the crime boss && a confidant of some sorts for through his wit and warm charm, Bard managed to keep himself alive. ( and maybe even cause attraction between the both of them. )

He has been described as an intelligent, warmhearted, witty individual whose main motivation in life is to ensure his children’s survival. Not one easily frightened, although his first meeting with Thranduil certainly changed his perspective, Bard is someone who stands up for others – ever the people’s champion. But the biggest thing to note is that he is such a dad. Bard knows all the lyrics to hit songs, has a terrible fashion sense, && wants to nap all the time. And he likes to bully Thranduil by singing Taylor Swift.
