everything i read in 2017: deltora quest series by emily rodda

“the enemy is clever and sly, and to its anger and envy a thousand years is like the blink of an eye”

  • it honestly amazes me how well akaashi knows bokuto. besides the whole list of weaknesses + solutions to combat them, he really knows how to read bokuto’s body language and mood well. he tries his best to understand bokuto through his ups and downs and that just screams how much akaashi cares about him. but seriously, i think it’s cute how they hang out outside practice too bc it shows how akaashi thinks of bokuto more than just the “ace/teammate.”
  • maybe… when bokuto started getting frustrated that his cross-spikes were getting blocked, maybe that’s when all the endless spiking practices started and akaashi agreed to practice w/ him because a happy bokuto is a happy akaashi. he’ll help bokuto jump over any hurdle they meet.
  • akaashi knows bokuto is capable of reaching his full potential (and beyond) on his own. in ch.244 when akaashi says he can only draw out bokuto’s top condition for a short time, i’d like to think that akaashi knows that bokuto just needs a little push from time to time, but the rest is all bokuto. akaashi believes in bokuto.
  • several months ago, i said how bokuto has complete trust in akaashi and i’m screaming bc of they think so fondly of each other and i’m just :’))) please get together. the day akaashi directly compliments bokuto, i will cry. will it happen at some point during spring interhigh?? bokuto’s graduation?? /cries
  • sometimes i wonder how far fukurodani will make it in nationals (i’m on the empty boat that thinks fukurodani’s gonna win, mainly bc my heart is gonna shatter if they don’t) but i really can’t decide. 100% sure nekoma v. karasuno will happen soon, but WHEN lol… i’ll just let the manga unfold itself c:

Hey there! Though I am not an avid writer, I do love to write. It started with poems, then I started doing scenes with random characters. One stuck with me, so I started writing their story. There was a big change in my life, and I stopped writing for a while. Now I can't. Everytime I try to write, it doesn't feel right. Everything's forced and dull, and I second guess the direction, no matter what it is I'm working​ on. How do I transfer this world I've created out of my head and onto paper?

Originally posted by the-reactiongifs

    I got super excited when I saw your ask because this is actually how I started writing! I had a rut of a few years too, where everything I wrote was dull and didn’t sound as amazing as the story in my head. Sigh. But enough lollygagging, let’s begin.

Keep Writing!

    Okay, I know this sounds silly because your writing sounds dull to you and you don’t like it, but just write. Sometimes the problem isn’t that your writing is dull, rather it’s that you have heard/read it so many times. To a new reader, this idea is fresh and exciting and unique because you came up with it. Even if your writing truly does sound forced and dull (which I highly doubt, by the way), still write out your story and simply edit later. Editing is every writer’s best friend. For now, just get the words on the page. A rough draft is a rough draft for a reason. Also, your writing will grow and change as you write and one day you may read something and realize exactly how amazing it sounds!  Just write and worry about how it sounds later.

    Speaking of your writing changing, you mentioned that you stopping writing for a while and now you can’t write. It may not be that you can’t write, but that simply you are out of practice. Writing is like riding a bicycle.  If you haven’t in a few years, the first few turns of the pedals are wobbly until you find your balance. It is not uncommon to get out of practice of writing, in fact this is why so many authors constantly journal or use daily writing prompts which is similar to how you were writing before. These get the creative juices flowing but also practice the flow of writing. If your style has changed, again, nothing to worry about. This just means you are growing as a writer. Don’t stop simply because it doesn’t sound the same as it did one paragraph earlier. If your plot is changing and taking a different direction, run with it. If you don’t like it, edit later. Sometimes the best moments in writing, are the moments that we didn’t plan out.

    Also, one problem may be that you are too comfortable with your idea which is why it sounds dull when you write it out. If the planning of your world happened in your head, the disconnect is that it was never on paper to start with. Try writing out your ideas in a journal where you can find them easily. Not necessarily all of them, but the main ones to get the creative juices flowing. Sometimes once they are on paper, you can see where you want to make changes to your ideas, giving them a new edge that they didn’t have before.

Writing Friend

     This one is optional, but it helped me get out of my rut so I thought I’d share. :) Okay, so a “writing friend” is a person who you, preferably, know personally and trust enough to have read your work and give you feedback. They are like a beta reader, but a little more personal. For me, my writing friend also writes and she and I exchange work every so often to read and then give feedback on it. This helped me to finish writing my book, even though the first draft was full of mistakes. It was like having unofficial deadlines because she would constantly text “Did you write more yet?” She was encouraging and looked past all the mistakes. Instead, she focused on the characters and how my idea was unique and could grow. Focus on how to grow your story rather than all the mistakes, you the author, see.

     My point is, just write! Your ideas are different and unique because you wrote them. Don’t let them collect cobwebs in a corner of your mind. Put them on a page. Even if no one reads it till you feel it is finished, at least now your idea is in ink. I strongly encourage you to continue writing. This is your story and it’s different from any other.

Happy writing!

Why do YOU like to write?

Ohhhh I think you asked me this last night  and like a very responsible onion I fell asleep before answering. <3 

I’ve been trying all day to come up with some sort of sophisticated and elegant, profoundly deep answer - and I just don’t think I have one, other than I really just….have to write. I’ve gone through periods in my life where I haven’t done so, and they’ve been a different sort of dark and lonely and less bright, if that makes sense. I love the feeling of seeing something in your head - kind of like a movie - and then finding just the right words to explain it. That tugging in your gut when something lands just right - a cliffhanger, or the perfect image - uhggghhh I live for those moments. I love creating something that didn’t exist before i took the time to sit down and make it so. Isn’t that neat? Art is such a beautiful form of expression - in any context - because of that unique, performative quality to it. Art does not exist until we, the dreamers and pushers and shakers and movers, make it so. It doesn’t matter the form or the context. We just have to sit down, show up, and do the work. And the end result is sometimes so breathtakingly beautiful. 

It’s always worth it. Even if it’s a struggle (and it often is; I don’t want to romanticize this), I always learn something from what I’m writing. New ways of characterization? New ways of expressing emotions through body languages? New ways of exploring tenses, or sneaking around filter words, or playing with styles and formatting? guhhhhh I live for those. I love learning and growing in this art form - any art form. And I really do love sharing these words and ideas and gifts with people, but that’s like a cherry on top. I write first and foremost because it’s a gift I have and I really firmly believe in using the gifts we’ve been given for good and beautiful purposes. Why else do we have them? Secondly, because nobody else will tell these stories in my head if I don’t do the thing. Thirdly, I’m a sucker for punishment and like beating my head against the wall and crying when the fic won’t edit itself, when the plot is dumb, when the fic is 15k long with no end in sight…

Ehhhh this got wordy. What’d you expect, it’s me <3 I LOVE WRITING. I hope I never stop. What a great question.

Father’s Day Visit

Summary: After a fulfilling Father’s Day, Soos visits his own.


Today was a good day.

Soos was happy to be surrounded by his children all day and to be spoiled for being a father. He loved every moment of it and reciprocated the love whenever possible. He hangs up the gifts given to him in the museum and smiles.

The most beautiful art you’ll ever see… nice ring to it, Soos thinks with a smile.

This is a weirdly specific thing to ask, but a while ago I found a short comic (it was linked to tapastic) about a guy going to kill himself but this really nice ghost soldier stops him and they start to get to know each other/help each other and it was really sweet and ahhhhhh I can't find it! I've been looking for a while now but can't dig it up. Can you or someone else here help me find it? It'd be very appreciated.

Another one - because now i've started i can't stop - Bucky... our Sarge... he found a old 1940's uniform just like his own in a thrift store, and totally gets off on a girl blowing him whilst she wears his uniform hat.

This is one of my favorite HC. Just imagine him saying “Darlin’ if you let the hat fall you don’t get to come” You’d whine around his cock and he would chuckle and taunt you some more asking “You want to come, don’t you baby doll?”

Hi!! I've just started reading until my feet bleed and my heart aches, and obviously I can't stop reading it, thanks for that😜❤ the reason for that is actually the way you write, so I wanted to ask you how you started writing? And how you learned to write the way you do now?

I started writing when I was sort of pre-teens-early teens ish with crappy fanfic that is still floating around the internet somewhere. I never really ‘learned’ to write the way I do now, I don’t have a degree in English or anything and I’ve never studied creative writing at all. It was more a case of being a massive bookworm to learn what I liked and didn’t like and then practicing a lot until my crappy fanfic became good fanfic instead. Developing my writing style was pretty much just reading a lot and playing around with a few different styles until I settled into something I was comfortable with and came naturally to me

anonymous asked:

What are the reasons TVXQ duo could be your bias? Not another idols? Thankyou! I luv your blog! Very muchh!


Hi ^_^ I’ll answer both questions together, cuz it’s basically the same thing, I hope it’s fine ^^

I’m thinking about how to answer this for two days now, and i still don’t have the perfect way. Because the answer is very simple like ‘because they are perfect to me’, but also very complicated, and im not sure if I can do it very coherently…And it’s gonna be long and chaotic.

So, why do I love TVXQ…

So, first of all - for the music. So simple XD It’s what caught my attention first and it keeps me still interested. I love how diverse their music is, how they are not afraid of trying new styles and genres, and yet they are able to keep their unique sound - you just can’t confuse their music with no other group.

I love them, because they’ve never disappointed me in any way.

I love them for their work ethics, how they work so hard, never looking for excuses, always giving 200% of themselves, always putting fans first. For them always doing their best even when they are performing with the army band for a few people max.

I love them for the way they love their whole staff and treat them like their family and the staff loves them back just as much and supports them in every way even when they are away.

For the way they are trying so hard to lead a ‘normal’ life, away from all this superstar glitter world. For the way they don’t care about showing off with their fortune. For Changmin staying in simple cheap hostels during his Eurotrip.

For the way Yunho always saw the brilliant truth behind Changmin’s shyness and always believed in him like no one else did. For the way he was always there for him when Changmin was fighting with his need to escape, the way Yunho was his stepping stone and almost forced the world to see how amazing and talented Changmin is.

For the way Changmin was always Yunho’s save haven, his full-scale life support system, in good and bad.

For Changmin giving up his solo activities so he could enlist early, just to be back faster, for fans and for Yunho.

For him giving us a solo album, even tho it wasn’t something he really felt the need to do.
