not tagging these all over again

Posting Info

Hello again participants (and bystander followers), I hope you’re all having a blast making your gifts so far!  We’re now just over the halfway mark for the production phase of this gift exchange, so without further ado here is the process when it comes time to post your gifts!

As you know, the gift reveal phase will take place between December 8 - December 13.

When you are ready to unveil your gift, simply post it to your own blog, and tag your secret santa along with this blog!  Once I receive the notification, I will then proceed to reblog your submission here.  As tagging may be hit or miss for some, feel free to also shoot the blog and/or your secret santa a message.  That’s it!  Simple, yes?

Few things to keep in mind:

1. Please post all fics under a “read more” cut.  You may place small teasers or summaries beforehand, as well as external links to ao3, etc.
2. Any NSFW visuals should be tagged #nsfw and placed under a cut.

As always, please let me know if you have any questions or concerns about the deadlines.

Cheers, and a very happy Thanksgiving to those who celebrate!  I for one, am thankful that all you participants are here! :)

FUKC SRY

Astro!Chat AU (?)

Ok, this doesn’t even have a title and this is just a preview of the first chapter but here *throws words* tell me what you think. (If you need a warning of any kind look at tags for semi-spoiler of the plot)




There’s always an eerie feeling when something goes wrong. Like you can hear the ticking of clocks slow to a stop; feel a dizziness as though suddenly the earth was wobbling out of balance. Suddenly you’re overcome with what you’re experiencing; there’s an ultra focus on that particular moment and yet you don’t feel you’re really there at all. Which is why the crowd’s murmurs went unnoticed as Ladybug sat unmovingly and hunched over. Her earrings screamed in her ears again, but she didn’t even flinch. Nothing around her mattered; everything was caving in.

“Please… please.”

Her whimpers fell quiet and pathetic on the ears of onlookers. It felt wrong to see her so weak. However, not nearly as wrong as seeing the limp frame she was cradling.

“This isn’t fair.” Ladybug shook her head violently. How dare the sun shine so brightly? How dare the birds sing? Why was time continuing for everyone else while she was stuck here?

Alya stood in the front row of the people encircled around Ladybug; her hands keeping the recording phone up only by absent habit. She didn’t snap out of her horrified daze until the crowd behind her stirred and she was being shoved out of the way.

“Out of my way, and leave while you’re at it,” a tall figure emerged in front of Alya; the voice and stature unmistakable.

Footsteps brought Ladybug’s attention up to the intruder, “Mr. Agreste? What are you doing here?” She sounded torn between being perplexed and offended.

Gabriel only stared down at her. His eyes were colder than usual, but Ladybug sensed a deep message was trying to be conveyed.

He crouched down beside her; his lips parting with a stern quiver, “Get away… from my son,” his voice attempted to be a frustrated growl but was more of a cry for help.

Ladybug’s eyes hardened, “What?”

Gabriel leaned over and touched the golden hairs of… that… thing… that empty shape that wasn’t real.

Ladybug took a shaky breath, “You mean… he’s your-”

Gabriel glared at Ladybug; answering her question thoroughly.

Finally, Gabriel reached underneath Chat Noir’s knees and upper back; slowly leveling himself back to his feet. Before she could lose herself down another spiral, Ladybug managed, “I’m so sorry… I thought we’d won. I didn’t see-”

“Please, be quiet.”

Gabriel turned - this time the crowd parted for him - and he left without another word. With her heartbeat ringing loudly in her ears, the sound of Ladybug’s earrings’ last cries were drowned out. Alya took no time putting her phone down and rushing to Ladybug’s side as hot tears traced like acid down her face.

“Come on, Ladybug. This isn’t the time to reveal your identity to everyone.”

Hi everyone,

Just a quick note to let you all know that this blog is now a L//api//dot Discourse Free Zone.

I’ve made my stance on this ridiculous L//api//dot drama perfectly clear and I have absolutely nothing else to say on the matter.  I’ve gone on a massive blocking spree of all the trolls and A//me//dot stans who are shitting all over the tag, and it actually looks perfectly normal again now - so I suggest you all do the same!  As before, hit me up privately if you want a list of the worst offenders (I won’t be publishing it because I don’t want to start a witch hunt or anything).  These people aren’t worth your time.

I’ve also temporarily switched off asks and submissions altogether - because apparently people don’t know how to behave themselves lol (shocking, right?!  Who’d have thought you’d get so many rude and aggressive trolls on Tumblr dot com? ;p).  I’m going to stress that this is temporary and I’ll have them back open again fairly soon!  If any of you are getting harassed, I’d strongly recommend that you take the same course of action.

Lmao BK antis always trying it, like begone you roaches

The majority of us are adults or close enough to analyze what we like and why. We own it. Shuuuuuuuut uuuuuuup. If ppl want to like a “toxic” fictional ship and they’re NOT hurting or harassing anyone over it? Let them ship what they wanna ship. Y'all the only ones starting shit, quit popping up in pro tags

I was tagged by @crawledoutofthesea

Rules: list ten of your favourite characters in ten different fandoms (in no particular order) then tag ten people

(honestly………this was hard, i mostly just watch the same 3 shows over and over again)

  1. emma swan (once upon a time)
  2. betty cooper (riverdale)
  3. chidi anagonye (the good place)
  4. ben wyatt (parks and rec)
  5. oscar nunez (the office) (lmao i know, i know) (but if you look at the last two, you will see the correlation)
  6. hermione granger (hp)
  7. finn (star wars)
  8. jane villanueva (jane the virgin)
  9. steve harrington (stranger things)
  10. elizabeth jennings (the americans)

damn when i look at all these put together it’s clear that i have 3 types of faves: the woman defined by a strong sense of justice/goals, the smart and lovable but tightly-wound nerdy guy, and a couple of cool, funny dudes who just seriously don’t how they found themselves in this situation but goddamnit they’re a part of this now ——> put em all together and somewhere in there it’s me

i’m v bad at tagging, but: @sylwrites @village-skeptic @lessoleilscouchants @scavengertrash @gentlesleaze @strix @soyforramen @jeemyjamz and i ran out of people i could think of bc i am hermit but honestly go forth and say i’ve tagged you

I was told by several friends and tumblr users that my Fisher the Voidfish cosplay from The Adventure Zone was being shared uncredited via pintrest and tumblr, so I hurried to put out my big compilation post faster than I usually do. I would very much appreciate it if everyone could reblog this version of the post, instead of any other post floating around that doesn’t correctly credit the costume back to me!! As an artist and a fan, it was incredibly hurtful that this happened. Although the original reposter has apologized profusely for this and properly credited me afterwards, it’s incredibly difficult to undo the damage that results from the reposting of any uncredited image in a large fandom. 

All photos in this post are taken by either myself, scribblesafterdark, or by cowbuttcrunchies!! My darling Magnus is the other half of cowbuttcrunchies. I would also like to take this time to shoutout to my friend automb, who provided endless support with this costume and helped me with cutting and trimming all the tentacles on Fisher’s dress. They also made Junior for me under my guidance, while I was going nutso over the rest of the costume. 

Thank you again to everyone who commented and tagged me on the other post, and I hope that everyone reblogs this version instead!!! As usual, more information about my work process will be under the cut, so if you’re interested in that kind of thing, read on! 💙

Fandometrics in Depth: Halloween

It’s your favorite time of the year again, you unearthly goblins. Halloween is the No. 1 holiday on Tumblr.  On this, the second spookiest day of the year, we’re bringing you some Halloween data highlights for your creepy ghoulish souls to fawn over.

Halloween 2017

In 2017, Halloween began trending upwards as early as June. With 59% more engagements per day than all of March, April, and May put together, it marked the first time #halloween trended in the app this year.

It was a overflowing, bubbling cauldron of #halloween tag surge from there. July’s average growth was 76% over June and August had 160% growth over July. It slowed a little in September, with only 90% growth over August.

To little shock (and horror), the largest daily growth was between September 30th and October 1st (also known as the First of Halloween), with a 237% increase in overall engagement. Holy skeleton, that really is a lot.

Let’s get spooky

There are dozens of blogs that provide spookiness year round. Here are just a few we suggest:

  • @marylandparanormal is the spine-chilling, informative archive of the Maryland Paranormal Research team.
  • @buzzfeedunsolved. Hey there demons, ya boys are now on Tumblr.
  • @kittenwitchandthebadvibes, the perfect balance of spooky and self-care. It’s full of wonderfully witchy gifs that remind you it’s okay to take a break sometimes.

For those who want to delve a little more seriously into Tumblr witch culture—a year-round celebration of positivity and wonder—there’s always #witchblr. #Crystals, #tarot, and #emoji spells are great places to start.

Stay spooky, Tumblr…or else.

NYFW (@nyfwofficial​) is here again. We’ve sent artists from Tumblr to cover everything and anything they have access to. Shows, presentations, backstage events—they’re going to share all of it with all of you for the 14th season in a row.

There’s a multitude of ways you can keep up. We’ll be reblogging the best of it over on our official Fashion (@fashion) Tumblr. The #NYFW tag will popping with the latest couture from the entire participating NYFW community. As always, you can follow this year’s photographers directly:

Photo credits go top to bottom and left to right in the order listed.

its been so long but im still trying to figure out how you could go from “i love you” to “i don’t care about you anymore” in such a short amount of time

female awesome meme 1/20 female dynamics: lorelai gilmore and rory gilmore (gilmore girls)
my mother never gave me any idea that i couldn’t do whatever i wanted to do or be whomever i wanted to be. she filled our house with love and fun and books and music, unflagging in her efforts to give me role models from jane austen to eudora welty to patti smith. as she guided me through these incredible eighteen years, i don’t know if she ever realized that the person i most wanted to be was her.

anonymous asked:

What are some canon or canon adjacent fics that you'd watch as a movie? like top 5 i guess

Wow, that’s a rly hard question tbh! I love a ton of fics, but this would require some TW knowledge and minimal sexytimes for a screen release(honeslty idgaf about sexytimes but they’re hard to get away from in fic)…buuuuut i guess here are my top 5(ish)?

1. Hagalaz - An unfinished series by an amazing author, but what is here would make a great film or series IMO

2. Rat’s Alley - An amazing post apoc fic that would def make a cool movie!(the MCD is not Stiles or Derek and it’s also at the very end)

3. Run To You - by @pale-silver-comb​ - quintessential cursed derek! so good! Derek only trusts stiles after being cursed by a witch into his baser wolf form

4. Move A Mountain - by @zainclaw​ - i can’t even with how much i adore this fic. generally I NEED the whole werewolf aspect to be interested in a fic, but this one..sheesh, it’s just soo feel good summer vacation fic, summer love, love at first site kinda…just perfect! OH ALSO! biker Derek(and also biker!stiles(where those manips came from wuwuwu)) the little chapters for later in life are just the icing on top of this delicious cake of awesome.

5. Not Quite Lost(not Quite Found) - by @alocalband​ - i found this one a little earlier this year and wow, how did it slip through my fingers? it’s such an amazing Derek/Stiles healing fic, it’d easily be turned into a slow romcom imo, i love this

honorable mentions!!!

Seeing Wolves(Where there Are No Wolves) by @loserchildhotpants

&

I’ve been Everywhere With you by @alocalband 

Both AMAZING healing fics that i believe could be great movies as well

this was a really hard decision as there are SO MANY AMAZING STEREK FICS, but i rly feel like these could be turned into such awesome movies.

How to break your own heart 101:

Step 1. Fall deeply, deeply in love with a pairing.

Step 2. Spend all your time scrolling through their tag on tumblr.

Step 3. Have every song remind you of them.

Step 4. Watch all the fan vids on Youtube.

Step 5. Get super excited for the couple’s future scenes & development.

Step 6. Realize the show featuring the pair has been cancelled/has ended & you will never have any new content.

Step 7. Cry and click on tumblr. Repeat the cycle all over again.

Everything Wrong With The Leaked MNet Schedule

(This title makes me feel like a CinemaSins video)

We’re not saying it’s fake, we’re not saying NCT things won’t happen there, we’re just listing observations that we have made about the schedule that are making us suspicious:

1) The entire thing is in English - this could be because it’s from “MNet America” or because the multiple countries require a universal language, but MNet schedules are almost always in Hangul.

2) EXO’s song is listed as The Power - it’s not called that, it’s official title is only Power.

3) Wanna One is said to perform Open Up - this isn’t on their album. In fact, Admin Beth is a huge Wannable and she can’t remember a time when they ever performed this song as an eleven membered group? The only songs from P101 that they remade together were Never and Pick Me.

4) They use the name Kim Jong-In - MNet don’t care about real names, for the sake of a performance they would use Kai. If they did use his real name, they would not hyphenate it and instead would just say Jongin.

5) Sunmi is performing Full Moon - she hasn’t promoted this song?

6) KARD are performing two songs, whilst GOT7 are performing one - it’s rare for a rookie group such as KARD to be a) performing alongside senior groups like NCT and GOT7 and b) get more songs than those senior groups. KARD are not that popular in Korea to justify this stage.

7) GDragon and Taeyang are performing - seriously, when was the last time they performed at MAMA? When was the last time YG liked MAMA??

8) The leaks are supposedly from CJ&M - they have links to MNet, but surely a MAMA schedule would come direct from MNet.

9) IOI are supposed to be reuniting - okay, MNet would do this and it’s been rumoured, but it’s also unlikely and their reunion is supposed to be in five years, not now.

10) ‘NCT Asia’ are supposed to be performing Lucifer and Mr. Simple - first of all, NCT’s go-to cover songs have always been Lucifer and Sorry Sorry, not Mr. Simple. Second of all, you don’t perform covers at MAMA. You perform songs from that year, or songs that are being released soon. If anything, NCT Asia would be performing their debut song. 

Debuting a new unit would probably include a new member, and there are not many rookies left at the moment who have been announced. If SM announce new rookies between now and MAMA, it’s likely a new unit is happening.

We’re not saying this leak is false, we’re just saying the reasons why it might be.


ADDITIONAL POINTS:

11) There are so many popular groups missing - yes, MAMA is over multiple days this year but Seventeen, Nu’Est, GFriend and even BTS seem like huge omissions on this schedule?

12) There’s only three girl groups - specifically, Twice, Red Velvet and Black Pink. There would at least be GFriend and multiple others. It’s suspicious to us that these three mentioned are also the popular groups that newer stans tend to know.

13) There’s not enough collaboration or special stages - there were so many last year, it’s a big part of the show. There are NONE here.

14) Black Pink are supposed to be performing Whistle - this is a song from last year, they wouldn’t perform it again at this MAMA.

“once upon a time, in a kingdom not so far away, there lived a prince, who fell in love, hopelessly head over heels, with a baker, and together they danced, until the dawn, all through the day, into the dusk, with the sun and moon, and even the rain, into happily ever after.”

gotta love how @lucycamui‘s like a fairytale’s chapter names tell the whole story <3
