Stiles transitions in to a Werewolf on his fifteenth birthday,

right before he is transfered in to a boarding school his parents’ sudden deaths by his aunt,

where he meets his future mate, Derek Hale…

Gordian Knot (Of Sex) by tourdefierce

(1/1 I 5,859 )

Losing his virginity was hard enough when Lydia Martin was his sole focus. Now there are werewolves involved and this is way crazier. For one, there are a lot more dicks involved. (To be fair, in some of his fantasies, Lydia Martin had an impressive rubber cock.) Either way, Stiles doesn’t know why he thought getting rid of his pesky virginity was going to be easier with Derek involved—the guy is practically allergic to doing anything the easy way and that includes Stiles. Being done. Because he’s easy. What.

Festival of Red by hoars

“See? I need my daisy crown or I won’t get Chased.” Stiles frowned. “And then I’ll have to do it again next year. I really don’t want to do it twice.”

The good and the bad of getting Caught this year included not having to do it again and the bad was he’d have a werewolf mate for the rest of his life. Stiles is seventeen. He has a lot of life to live. Unless his wolfy mate has no sense of humor or a temper. Those with no sense of humor and tempers tended to hate Stiles the most and wouldn’t that suck? Being tied to someone for the rest of his life who hates him. That actually sounds like his type of luck.

“You’ll be fine.” Allison beams because she’s a sweet person and can obviously read Stiles like a picture book aimed at toddlers.

So Shed Your Skin and Lets Get Started by halfhardtorock

He’s sixteen and in the woods on the wrong side of the town-line and he’s so fucking fucked.

He knows he’s not supposed to run, they teach that to you in preschool (don’t run from a Were, back away slowly and walk with care), but they never told you how it would feel, standing alone in the dark with your heart beating in your throat as those glowing eyes tracked you from the shadows.

I’m Not Immune by moodwriter

(12/12 I 24,287)

“Did they inject anything into you? You can hold me back. You can stop me. I can’t stop you.” Stiles is in full blown panic mode now.

The one where Stiles and Derek get kidnapped, and sex needs to happen for reasons.

Caged Humanity by Ember

(12/12 I 55,234)

The other factors sounded like complete bullshit. Like about Companions having certain dispositions for submission, and a personality built around wanting to please. Fuck that, Stiles was a strong independent man who didn’t need no wolf. Submitting was straight up taught in classes. Don’t talk back, try to reason not argue, never run away when your Mate was in heat. Mate? More like owner. There was a reason Companions were called pets. God Stiles hated it all, the hypocrisy. It was an honor? More like a life sentence.

An AU where werewolves are given humans as pets called Companions, and a very begrudging Stiles is taken in by Derek Hale, much to both their displeasure. And then pleasure. Very, very sexual pleasure.

His Only Defence by LunaCanisLupus_22

(!4/14 I 78,779)

Stiles had just accidentally challenged an alpha.

Oh God, and Scott had just stood by and let him do it. He was the worst best friend ever. Stiles was going to kill him. Except, oh right, the alpha was going to kill him first. Like beyond dead, ripped into tiny little pieces dead. So far dead that his dad would not be able to identify him, dead.

No Homo by RemainNameless

Stiles’ sophomore year starts something like this:
3 FourLokos
+ 1 peer-pressuring cat
- 1 best bro to end all best bros
= 1 Craigslist ad headline that reads “str8 dude - m4m - strictly platonic”.
Derek is the fool who replies.

Bruises and Bitemarks by oblivions172

(25/? I 103,456)

Biologically, Stiles is weak. When he presented as an omega, he knew that to be the truth but that never stopped him from running his mouth as a defense mechanism. However, it could only save him so many times before he ended up pissing off the wrong person. After he’s attacked in the parking lot outside of school, Stiles realizes he can no longer protect himself with just pure wit and sarcasm. When the attack lands him in the hospital, his dad forces him to pick between two options, report the alphas who attacked him or join a kickboxing gym run by omega rights activist and alpha, Derek Hale, a man Stiles has been in love with for many years.

reagans-ramblings  asked:

okay so 1)i love your blog and oc thursday thing (even if i am always too nervous to send my own) 2) i think mythal created the qunari as her personal servants. BEAR WITH ME; mythal is heavily tied to dragons and the qunari are implied to have dragon blood. they have elf ears and the kossith are said to come from somewhere "far away" but they don't actually know why they had to leave. solas has a low opinion of them, even more than humans. its probs just me reaching, but maybe there's a link?

bless you, thanks! i’d love to hear about your kids one day, but i totally get being nervous about sharing <33

as for the mythal-qunari thing….thats super super interesting

because i can never just leave things at that, let’s frickin. roll up our sleeves and really get into this.

kossith = qunari?

qunari are kind of complicated because it’s super unclear whether ‘kossith’ refers to their race, or the culture that the qunari stemmed from. kossith were around pre-qun, but from what we understand qunari place less importance on one’s race than one’s religion/culture (hence the differentiation between ‘qunari’ and ‘tal vashoth’). ‘kossith’ as a term isn’t really used anymore, so it’s really difficult to tell what it actually refers to.

this is only important because WoT tells us:

‘-410 Ancient: A group of kossith is believed to land in the south Korcari Wilds, establishing a colony. They are likely killed off in the First Blight, giving rise to the first appearance of ogres on the continent.’ (vol 1 p 26)

if ‘kossith’ refers to the culture the qunari came from, then this isn’t super important to this discussion. if it refers to the actual race, though, then this is the first time this race is seen in thedas – several hundred years before actual qunari land in 6:30 storm. hell, it’s fifteen years before the first blight, and 200 years before andraste.

either way, of course, the kossith/qunari are the most recent race to turn up in thedas. the qunari who appear in the storm age came from ‘an eastern land across the ocean’ (x), and though the wiki assumes that’s where the kossith also came from, that’s never confirmed.

so. we know for sure that the kossith came first. i’m willing to bet the term refers to the race, if only for the comment about ogres, which would be a weird thing to note otherwise.

so were they created?

both of these sources say that the kossith/qunari ‘land’ in thedas, though – wherever they came from, whether it’s the same place or two different ones, these groups are extra-terrestrial, if you will. if they were created by anyone, it had to be either outside of thedas, or somewhere we haven’t been yet still joined to the main continent (there’s plenty both north and south that we haven’t explored), or i guess created in thedas and then shipped off somewhere else at some point? or like you said, they left for some reason, leaving absolutely no trace behind.

(note that the first kossith were spotted by the korcari wilds, which expands way further to the south than we’ve seen, and also wow guess who we first met living in the korcari wilds? lmao.)

you mentioned that qunari have elven ears, which is kind of difficult to talk about because their ear design actually changes from game to game. compare sten and iron bull, for example:

sten very clearly has the same model of ears as elves in origins. bull? not so much.

something else that changes from game to game is qunari horns. you can see the progression if you look at sten → the arishok → iron bull. this is probably evolving design on the part of bioware – but like we said, qunari don’t pay a massive amount of attention to race, just culture, and we haven’t exactly seen enough qunari to know for sure that these are changing designs and not variations within the qunari race(s). which is a whole ‘nother question entirely, but also super interesting.

horned creatures in thedas

even more than ears, though, qunari’s most defining feature are their horns – something else that’s noticeably lacking from sten. (design changes again? or something else?)

that story about the first kossith in thedas say that they’re where ogres came from (supposedly). and looking at ogres, you can see why people would make that assumption:

big ol’ horns, huh. also check out those ears – now they look elven to me.

this ogre dude bears almost no resemblance to sten, or to bull, tbh. know who he does look like?

not exactly, obviously. the horns are different enough to give me pause (the ogre’s got this nice curly thing going on) but the general size & shape of the horns is pretty damn similar. looking at these two pictures, i totally get where this whole ogre-qunari thing came from. and it’d suggest that the people who came up with the theory believed the original kossith were the same as modern-day qunari, at least.

mythal

ogres aren’t the only things with horns we’ve seen, though. you rightfully pointed out that qunari are linked to dragons – and oh hey, we’ve seen dragons with horns as well, including this guy:

mythal’s dragon. coincidence? maybe. maybe not.

something that doesn’t look like coincidence, though is this:

the first time we see flemeth like this is at the very beginning of da2 – before we’ve seen any qunari with horns. check out the arishok again:

flemeth and the arishok’s horns are almost exactly the same. they both bend backwards from the head, with an upward flick at the end. they both have that smaller horn beneath. and we see flemeth first.

flemeth’s headdress seen in da2 has now become her default #look, whereas qunari are still changing up each game. but we can’t deny this kind of spot-the-difference similarity, especially considering that this is established as flemeth’s look first, before we even see any qunari in da2.

(of course, we also see flemeth appear shortly after an ogre. another coincidence?)

demons

horned creatures in thedas (that we know of) are limited to qunari, some dragons, ogres, and flemeth’s headdress. demons are another story, though.

it’s worth noting that in all three games, the first boss you face is horned. in origins and da2, it’s an ogre. in inquisition, it’s a pride demon.

the only demons with horns (that i can think of, but please correct me if i’ve missed one) are pride demons & desire demons. pride demons actually look a lot like ogres, if you think about it:

they both have those slightly twisty horns, not to mention that they’re fuckin huge. pride demons & qunari don’t seem to have anything in common, really, apart from the stretch of ‘oh yeah horns’. honestly, if anything, pride demon horns look like halla.

desire demons are a little more what we’re talking about, though:

we’ve currently only seen two beings with horizontal horns that go outwards sideways, instead of going back from the head. those two are desire demons, and the iron bull. of course, iron bull’s horns aren’t curly, but they do also head upwards at the end.

demons and dragons

so we know there’s some kind of a link probably between qunari and dragons. WoT tells us that ‘the kossith race prayed to animist gods’ (vol 1 p127), and iron bull tells us that some qunari believe the tamassrans mix qunari and dragon blood to form reavers, qunari with special abilities.

and, you know, if that sounds familiar, it’s probably because it was a major plot point in origins.

the joining is, effectively, a blood magic ritual in which one imbibes dragon blood and gains special abilities/a massively slowed-down version of the taint/some kind of immunity to the taint/who knows, it makes you special okay. and the joining was invented sometime during the first blight, with the grey wardens being founded 100 years after the first kossith appeared in thedas.

considering tevinter’s obsession with ancient elvhen beliefs & magic, it wouldn’t be a massive stretch to suggest that they got the idea of the joining from, i don’t know, some kind of elvhen qunari-making ritual thing. in fact, it’d make a hell of a lot more sense than some dude just being like ‘lol drink this dragon blood it’ll be funny’ & then discovering he can save the world.

know something else about the joining? it can’t be just any dragon blood, of course – it’s got to be archdemon blood. the terminology & lore surrounding all this is kind of messy, in my opinion, but basically: old gods are dragons, who, when freed from wherever they’re hanging out (supposedly in the deep roads) become archdemons and lead the blight.

taking into account that at least some of this is definitely chantry bogus, and our new knowledge about the veil etc throws a lot of it into a completely different light, the whole dragon + demon relationship here is super interesting.

because, like. obviously not every creature with horns has to be related, that’d be silly. but idk, man, there’s a theory that elves are spirits made flesh, and if we’re going with the ‘mythal created the qunari’ theory then is it super far-fetched to suggest she did something involving spirits + dragons to create them?

so is any of this even remotely likely?

i’m not 100% on whether i believe mythal created the qunari, honestly. it feels like something that big would come into play somewhere, but i don’t think the franchise is gearing up for some big qunari-elvhen reveal. i do think both qunari and elves are gonna be super important going forwards, but that’s going forwards you know?

(not to mention the idea that qunari are somehow fabricated or grown in test tubes or whatever makes me super :/ bc they’re coded as poc & particularly meant to parallel islam (which is gross in its own right lmao), but i can’t really talk about it in any more depth than that)

but honestly, when has ‘not likely’ ever stopped me from speculating lmao

if i was gonna argue that mythal created the qunari, here’s what i’d say:

  • qunari designs are deliberately linked to elves (origins) and flemeth (da2), as well as ogres (WoT) and, by extension, other horned beings – especially considering the ogres in origins & da2 perform the same role as the pride demon in inquisition.
  • qunari are also linked in lore to dragons, as is flemeth/mythal. mythal’s dragon is also horned.
  • kossith are also linked to flemeth, as they first turned up in the korcari wilds, the same place we find flemeth in origins
  • the first kossith turned up around 100 years before the joining was invented; it’s highly likely that the joining is at least in part based off ancient elvhen rituals involving blood magic + dragons
  • the qunari have (allegedly) invented their own rituals involving blood magic + dragons, completely independently of the grey wardens. were they also based off ancient elvhen rituals, or passed down to them through their creator?
  • -410 ancient, the first time we hear about kossith, is way way too late for arlathan, which fell in -975; but honestly it wouldn’t be a stretch for the records to have been lost (thanks tevinter), the records to be somewhere we haven’t had access to them (u kno tevinter has a library of alexandria equivalent), or even for mythal to invent this whole practice after the fall of arlathan, as a direct response even maybe (if you watched your empire fall to tevinter, who better to invent than a race constantly at war with them?)
  • looking at the design & genetics of qunari, it’s honestly not a stretch at all to see elven, draconic, & even demonic influences

this is long as heck but basically in short: idk if i completely agree with this theory, but it sure is fun to think about holy hell

  • “ i wouldn’t be late to classes if you woke me up directly you know..
  • “yeah maybe idk”
  • “YEAH OKAY COME OVER”
  • “… I mean only if you want you I’m not forcing you” (he’s whispering by the end of it)
  • so it’d be very quick and very short notice and when did this happen i’m literally moving into a 4 year old’s house isn’t this illEGAL??

  • “so..”

  • “want to play LOLOL?” guys .. what did you even expect
  • the first few weeks would consist of snuggling and playing games and onesies -  it’s like the first few hours of a sleepover when everyone’s reaALLY hyper
  • there’d be unpacked boxes everywhere for weEKS (lazy mfs)
  • also the first few weeks would be living off ramen and sweets and getting 0 sleep (take this however you want)
  • you don’t even argue over chores because who gives a fuck they can just chill there
  • when theres a bug in the attic you’re both screaming aren’t you supposed TO BE A WARRIOR YOOSUNG
  • BUT I FIGHT DEMONS NOT WASPS
  • - WAIT hand me the frying pan we will outflank the enemy and i will protect you princess
  • the wasp comes closer and you both never return to the attic ever again
  • for now you probably both sleep on a pikachu bean bag or something because his single bed doesn’t fit to both of you and he feels guilty sleeping on the bed
  • the good guy who always puts the toilet seat down after he uses the toilet after the one time you flipped out on him
  • moving in with Yoosung means he doesn’t get as flustered anymore around you
  • you see him shouting and laughing a lot more and less blushing and wow 
  • you didn’t think you could fall in love with him any more until you saw him curled up on the couch with his bear onesie

  • also makes you wait outside so he can pick you up bridal style and carry you in
  • “I’VE LITERALLY BEEN HERE 100 TIMES BEFORE”
  • IT’S CALLED BEING ROMANTIC”
  • always leaves the toilet seat up fgs
  • on the second day you wake up to hear crashing and burning from the kitchen because he was trying to make pancakes for you
  • its then… that you’ll do the cooking from now on (thanks @god) but god damn it he’s always peering over your shoulder
  • “What’s that?”
  • “Pepper”
  • “..What’s that?”
  • “.. an egg.”

lil-ustrate  asked:

First off I'd like to say your art is absolutely amazing and I love it! And second, as a still developing artist myself, I tend to get really picky with my work sometimes and then end up frustrated when it doesn't go well 😓 Do you have any tips on just relaxing when it comes to my work rather then stressing over every little detail?

it’s common to get frustrated, sadly every artist goes thru it and believe me if i wasn’t such a frustrated person there’d be 80% more content in this blog

i dont know how i can help you in particular, artists can get frustrated for very different things!! i can tell you what frustrates me and how i deal with it, yeah? i hope it helps any sort of way

  1. dont, absolutely dont stay hours without breaks on the same work. this is the number one way to get angry at what youve done. the longer you stay fixated on one thing, the more you realize the mistakes, and the less you progress because you just keep being held back to correct these mistakes. now, im not saying you shouldnt correct them, but sometimes its better to go around them; finish your picture! get through with it and see how everything looks. once its done? take a got damn break. play a game, read a book, a fic, go for a walk. when you come back, you’ll be refreshed, and you’ll see your mistakes in a different light and you’ll have regained motivation to fix them.
  2. correlated to the last point, dont make a fixation on details that you know aren’t your forte! if you just cant get it right, you wont get it right by pushing and pushing for hours. the longer you stay on one thing, the more your perception of it will twist and become subjective. just leave it. the only way to get better at it is most obviously to practice. and practice =/= perfection.
  3. noticing mistakes after you posted a pic? noticed something on art you did a week ago? don’t correct it. keep it. keep your mistakes. look at them and remember that its a thing youve done, and that now that youve noticed it, you wont do it again, you can correct it on your next piece. dont feel ashamed of what youve done, your brain will think “everyone will notice this mistake” but chances are just 1 out of 100 fools will because theyre more amazed by the whole picture than this little detail. and fuk people who make fun of your mistakes, cuz theyre unappreciative little jerks for the effort you’ve put into doing everything else and its just one detail thats wrong so what does it even matter
  4. DONT!!! DONT THROW YOUR OLD ART!!!! its a primary source of satisfaction. dont you ever feel proud when you put your old art side by side with your latest piece and jsut think “s/o to my brain for remodelling itself to allow me to get better at this”
  5. mostly when i feel like im having a bad art day, i just accept it. it happens to the best of us, its normal. what to do? leave it. if you really feel like after 10 doodles (cause you really need at least a few doodles here and there to check if youre really having a bad art day) youre just really not winging it, let loose and come back after a few hours. its ok to give up, i knnow a lot of posts out there say DONT GIVE UP!! which just makes people feel worse when they do, but look, its fine. youre not being timed. you have all the time to get better, so its fine to give up for a few because its just not sinking in.
  6. get inspired. and heres where it may vary for some people; some artists get motivated by looking at ‘better’ artists (i know a friend like that n it amazes me) and just whip up a pencil and get to it. some people on the contrary get dejected when they see ‘better’ artists, (and, listen, your ‘level of goodness’ is a fully subjective concept, even if in some technicality it can be objective, but dont just judge how good you are based on how you perceive other’s art), if you’re one of those people, then dont go looking around tumbler, watch movies. read books. you dont need to look at other drawings/paintings to get inspired, inspiration comes from anything. from real life too!! get inspired by things that dont concern drawing.
  7. people might look scornfully at this one, but its not a bad thing to do; theres other artists out there yeah? they make mistakes too. look out for them. notice them. no, dont go and tell them ‘you did this’ thats not what youre doing it for, most artist dont want to hear about it unless its from a trusted friend, youre doing it to prevent from doing it yourself. someone did this mistake before you did it, and you have it presented to yourself so you wont do it in your turn. i do get a lot of my energy from looking at others’ mistakes and actively working my way around those. and look, by posting your pictures that have mistakes, you may also actively help other artists who will notice that mistake and help them realize not to do it. im sure my art has TONS of mistakes and i hope when ppl see them its helpful in a way. does this look like a mean and selfish method to you? its fine, you dont gotta!
  8. lastly, the hardest thing to accept is critics and foreign point of views. when i show what i drew to my non-artist parents, they just say “nice” and yes, it feels like they dont fucking care. well, keep on showing it to other people, theres bound to be someone who will be head over heels, dont give up at the first opinion! the one that will gloat over your work is the one who will help you the most to continue. as for critics? yes, there will be those nagging people who will say “this looks odd” they may generally not mean bad, and even if they do, ignore it. its just this one dink who thinks theyre entitled to tell what is good or bad. but to those who dont mean bad, there might be a reason why they think something looks odd. well, look into it. look what your art gives off that they might think is weird, make a mistakes checklist, sometimes its not even the details but the composition, the overall picture. sometimes it doesnt quite fit. you may have drawn everything perfectly, but the composition is bad. yes, that happens! you can be excellent with anatomy but suck at making a good picture. remember to always cool your brain off that picture for a few hours and come back to it, a refreshed mind is sharper to mistakes and oddities.

hope this helped, boy, i wasnt expecting to write SO much. keep on rocking that art buddy

anonymous asked:

What do you think about the information on IMDb saying the season 12 finale is about Mac, Dennis, and Charlie going to pride? There's no title or source for it yet. I really hope it's fake. I've been a fan of the show since season 3 and I hate seeing so many people on here taking the show too seriously and turning it into some big political statement when it's just a comedy

Here’s the thing: the show is extremely, overtly, outwardly, very political. Yes, it’s just a comedy. But it’s also running amok with political and social commentary and satire.

I say this next sentence not trying to one up you, or diminish you or anyone else as a fan, but rather help illustrate my points and experiences. I’ve been watching the show since season 1 (2005), I’ve had the twitter account since 2009, and I’ve been a part of this account since 2010 (and slowly ended up being the only person on it). Seasons 1 & 2 were very outwardly political, not hiding it, not masking it behind satire. Well, in a way it was because it was obvious that the joke is these people are horrible and the real people behind the show don’t feel this way, but it has become more layered over the years. And I have found that people who became fans in those seasons were either super into the politics and intelligence of the show or thought that they were making fun of them liberal elites #MakeAmericaGreatAgain etc. And as a girl fan I was too young to get it (I was just shy of 15 when it premiered), or would never understand the show because it’s for dudes and I’m a chick. People who ahve become fans in the middle seasons, when it was more silly or otherwise layered with the commentary and not as obvious hate when it is political. It has since circled back and become more intentionally obviously political, and I’ve been seeing a lot of hate from the dudebros/Trumpistas, or if they’re real dumb saying “yeah give it to them liberals!” etc. (clearly not knowing what satire is or how the writers/creators really feel, or able to look at anything beyond face value). The cycles have gone as the creators have grown as people and creators. They’ve gone from young, single, & childless to middle aged people, married with kids. Priorities and ideas and thoughts have changed and grown and ways to convey messages and stories have changed and grown with them. Middle season fans have hated hte last two seasons (12 not included), and OG fans have never been happier with the last two seasons. On the whole, I’m not saying it’s an absolute rule, because it’s a long running show younger people are discovering it, older people are tuning in to what their kids are watching, or people are just simply wanting to check out the show that’s been on this long against so many odds. I have a friend who has known me for like 5 years and I JUST got her to finally watch it. And that’s amazing to me.

My problem with people is not so much they turn it into a big political statement, because again the whole show is nothing but political statements, they read a lot of things out of nothing. Fan theories and expectations and speculations are super fun. I get it. I do it. But I don’t say a character is ace when nothing in his history or the writers room have ever hinted to it. I don’t say a character is gay or bi because I misinterpret “looks” and “glances” that just naturally happen between 1) actors not doing anything 2) super close friends that have been friends since before the show started 3) people who genuinely love and respect and trust each other as people and as actors to be in the moment. I respect when the writers present me with an episode that goes against with what I thought about a character, because it’s their person and they know that person better than me. I don’t look at the hiring of a lesbian director as a way to hint to fans that this episode is all about gay gay gay gay gay gay gay gay gay, but rather an inclusion of two voices of directors the show has not had the previous 11 seasons: 1) woman 2) LGBT+. I don’t present my speculations as fact. I don’t pretend to know more when I don’t. I also think people, like a lot of hardcore fans do, read and watch a lot about the actors so they know their positions and beliefs, and while yes it influences the show and shows their beliefs satire and comedy, people think there’s more going on when there’s not. Sometimes if it walks like a duck and quacks like a duck and looks like a duck…. it’s a fucking duck, not an undercover  rabbit that only true fans of the animal kingdom could ever understand and read between the lines.

As far as the season 12 finale goes, I’m not in a position to speculate. And by that I mean I know what’s happening. And I have since June when they filmed the fucking thing. Some people somehow already figured out it’s called Dennis’ Double Life though, so I’ll offer that much up.
No, I’m not telling you anything else. You don’t have to believe me; tbh I probably wouldn’t if I was on the other side of this just seeing some random no name person claim to know things without proof.
But again…. people believe what they want to believe. About me, about the show, about a plot, about a picture, about a phrase, about a title.
But I will say that I cried on set about it, should anyone want to take a stab at those speculations.

(sorry I don’t feel like proofreading this or writing more, my brain is fried; I’ve had a long day at work and am still getting over being sick)

Studio Space

Thanks as always to @scribefindegil for betaing!


It’s the future.

Somewhere in California, there’s a girl sitting in a painting studio. She’s finishing the first semester of her second year at art school. Maybe it’s the art school in California that you’re thinking of. Maybe it’s not. It isn’t important.

The girl’s name isn’t important, either. Or maybe it is. Maybe everyone’s name is important. Either way, her name is Aysha, and she is friends with Mabel Pines.

Lots of people are friends with Mabel the way that Aysha is. She isn’t Mabel’s closest friend, or even her second closest or third. Sometimes they eat lunch together, and sometimes they work together in the studio and talk and play loud music and laugh, and it’s nice. She’s gotten to know her a little, but most of Mabel is still a mystery to her.

She knows that Mabel loves sprinkles and 80’s music and Crayon D'Ache pencils, that she can’t control the volume of her voice or her laughter and that she has strong opinions on hot chocolate. She knows Mabel has a pet pig back home and will, at the slightest hint of skepticism that she actually owns a pig, immediately pull up two and a half gigabytes of photo evidence. She knows she hugs way too hard and way too fast, she’ll hug someone the first time she meets them without fear or shame, and it’s hard not to love her for that.

Entering the bar, Caroline had a pretty vivid picture in her head of how this night was going to end.

Of all the colleges in the States, it just had to be Tulane that held the big end-of-year cheerleading competition.

And it would just be her friggin’ luck – at the bar afterwards, celebrating their win with her teammates, she ended up at the one place with the most boring bartender talking her ear off.

The Miseducation of Cameron Post by Emily M. Danforth

[Goodreads]

When Cameron Post’s parents die suddenly in a car crash, her shocking first thought is relief. Relief they’ll never know that, hours earlier, she had been kissing a girl.

But that relief doesn’t last, and Cam is soon forced to move in with her conservative aunt Ruth and her well-intentioned but hopelessly old-fashioned grandmother. She knows that from this point on, her life will forever be different. Survival in Miles City, Montana, means blending in and leaving well enough alone (as her grandmother might say), and Cam becomes an expert at both.

Then Coley Taylor moves to town. Beautiful, pickup-driving Coley is a perfect cowgirl with the perfect boyfriend to match. She and Cam forge an unexpected and intense friendship–one that seems to leave room for something more to emerge. But just as that starts to seem like a real possibility, ultrareligious Aunt Ruth takes drastic action to “fix” her niece, bringing Cam face-to-face with the cost of denying her true self–even if she’s not exactly sure who that is.

anonymous asked:

Hey there! Not to be a bother, but I read your comment on the 'schrödinger's canon' post, about the Magnussen hospital scene and am actually very curious to see what you mean with 'Sherlock's sexuality'. Would you care to elaborate? You've sparked my interest with this, because I sense there's indeed something here, but I seem to be missing part of the point you're trying to make and I'd love the whole picture if you'd spare me the time. Have a nice day!

Hey Nonny!

No probs! I love thinking about Sherlock. 

I’m assuming you’re referring to my comments here

…it seems to me that the scene highlights Sherlock’s sexuality in a way that will make viewers who haven’t been paying attention sit up and take notice. That’s the main thing that separates it from the Mary threat scene, and the main thing that differentiates it from the CAM scene in the restaurant.

The fact that they chose not to draw attention to Sherlock’s sexuality in the context of Sherlock-as-victim means they’re planning to reveal it in a different context, to which I say bravo. The fact that the scene is available for viewing anyway is imo yet another of multiple attempts to prepare dedicated viewers to expect some more explicit focus on Sherlock’s sexuality in coming episodes, to which I say yee haw.

Okay so I don’t know where you’re coming from or what you’ve thought about Sherlock and his sexuality, so forgive me if this is 101. I’ve been planning to make this list for a while and this is the perfect excuse, so here we go!

I read Sherlock as gay. (If that’s not what you’re asking about, feel free to skip the next several paragraphs…and go down to the part about the hospital scene which I’ve bolded for you)

There are lots of people who see Sherlock’s homosexuality as so screamingly obvious it doesn’t require proof. There are others who don’t read him as gay. I do, and not just because he’s obviously infatuated with John, which could still be read as Sherlock’s homoromanticism or even at a stretch his bromanticism or what have you. I’m talking here about Sherlock’s sexuality as something separate from the relationship with John.

This is not an exhaustive list but these are some of the most conclusive pieces of evidence from the show. Most of this comes direct from the brilliant minds of johnlock shippers and some of it’s stuff I’ve thought through for myself. Sources cited where I could find them. (I’m not including the “gay pilot” which you really should watch and is pretty damning and adorable.)

Angelo and Mrs. Hudson assume he is gay. These are two people who’ve known him for a long time and are friendly with him, and with whom he has interdependent relationships.

He doesn’t correct them. You could read this as proof that he doesn’t care / is very open-minded, or you could read it as proof that he’s probably gay (or both).

The Study in Pink restaurant scene - “girlfriends not really my area” vs. “I don’t have a boyfriend.”

Moriarty goes out of his way to “play gay” in the midst of The Great Game, which is entirely about engaging Sherlock’s interest. The whole Moriarty game is for Sherlock. Moriarty’s no dummy. His choice to present “Jim from IT” as gay and to leave his number for Sherlock is no coincidence.   

This may seem like a small thing, but I read this exchange from The Empty Hearse as Sherlock telling Molly that he’s been having a tryst:

SHERLOCK (walking past her and continuing down the stairs): Fancy some chips?
MOLLY: What?
SHERLOCK: I know a fantastic fish shop just off the Marylebone Road. The owner always gives me extra portions.
MOLLY (following him): Did you get him off a murder charge?
SHERLOCK: No – I helped him put up some shelves.
(She giggles and he smiles briefly.)

(Source: Ariane de Vere’s transcript of The Empty Hearse.)

“Putting up shelves” is a somewhat obscure but not totally unheard of euphemism for having sex. This exchange takes place in the context of a scene where Sherlock has just described John as “Not really in the picture any more.” He is explicitly trying to move on by asking Molly to assist him. I think this is where Sherlock and Molly’s relationship has transitioned from Series 1’s pining Molly / disinterested Sherlock through Series 2’s test of Molly as incredibly pivotal and dependable (The Reichenbach Fall) to a friendship. When Molly tells Sherlock in The Sign of Three that she and Tom are “having quite a lot of sex,” I read that as a reciprocation of his comment about the fish and chips guy. They’re friends who talk about men now.

WHERE DOES THIS LEAVE US? Many people think that Sherlock’s sexuality is still a big question mark or have bought the story that he’s ace or celibate by choice. There are a ton of people out there who still argue that he’s straight and that Scandal in Belgravia is the story of his affair with Irene Adler. (I think he had a romance of sorts with Irene Adler, but it was an intellectual affair / awakening of sorts, but that’s an argument for another time.) 

Canonically -  i.e., in terms of evidence presented by the show - people can make arguments one way or the other. This is why it’s interesting to puzzle this through. However I think there will be a big dingdingding moment where Sherlock’s homosexuality is presented in a way that’s undeniable; likewise John’s bisexuality.

Okey dokey that is a lot of info.

Re: the hospital scene:

Okay so there’s a whole lot of predatory stuff in this scene. CAM goes out of his way to cast Sherlock as feminine / a woman (“a woman’s hands”) while simultaneously drooling all over him. This is a sexual assault no question. So the things to ask about it are why did they choose to write it that way and why did they choose to cut it, and why did they choose to then re-present it? I’m not sure about the intention behind your original question but maybe you’re asking what I think it has to do with Sherlock’s sexuality?

Ultimately it doesn’t have a ton to do with Sherlock’s sexuality. Sherlock could be straight as the day is long and the CAM assault could still have happened in the exact same way. 

BUT 

There are many people who would read Sherlock’s victimization as proof that Sherlock is gay, or more accurately, that scene would cue some or maybe even many audience members who haven’t seen any reason to think about Sherlock’s sexuality to start thinking about it. I believe that is the case partly because that is what happened in the Tumblr community, but also because sadly and unfortunately there are a lot of people who associate difference with victimhood.

The question is, is CAM merely showing up to crow over Sherlock in his weakened state, or is he trying to exploit a pressure point, one that wasn’t previously revealed, and one having to do with his sexuality? Is the scene trying to show more than just the already-established fact that CAM is a creeper?

It took me a bunch of steps to figure out why the scene doesn’t work. ceywoozle and I had a long exchange about this, if you care to read more. This is the end point but you can probably trace it back to the beginning if you want

If the purpose of the scene is to twig viewers to the idea that Sherlock is gay via some previously unexplored pressure point, then I can understand why it was cut. Other than that it serves little purpose - CAM tells us stuff we already know, i.e., that Mary didn’t shoot him, and he offers some insight into the fact that Sherlock’s enemies (and frenemies like Irene Adler) are still thinking of him and know he’s been shot.

Making Sherlock’s sexuality definite is something that I think will happen in the course of time, as the show progresses. If he is gay, this is going to be a big deal and difficult to do well. It’s important that the information is presented in a considered way. There are queer characters all over this story - Harry Watson, the Hounds of Baskerville innkeepers, and that one client whose story was only told on John’s blog), but outing Sherlock is an important move. This is a beloved character with a huge cultural cache. Do we want to see him outed or sort of outed in a scene where he is incapacitated and victimized? I don’t.

I’m still holding out for a positive reveal of Sherlock’s sexuality, beyond the ways it’s already been presented. I’m wondering if this might happen through a Victor Trevor plot, but not sure. 

Thanks for initiating this GIANT post. I hope no one else is scared to ask questions because of this.

Stalerie Vs Steroline Meta (of sorts)

Dear Anon,

I’ve given this A LOT of thought. And heres the thing, there are so many theories out there that I can’t keep track. Theres that whole personal hell theory, the alternate universe theory, the mind prison theory? But the point is, since I’m not the proponent of any of these theories, I know very little about how plausible they are.

SO I’ve basically gathered the theories running amuck in my head and pin pointed which theory I’d put my money on. 

So here goes this long ass post and my only request is that if you’re reading it, please read the whole thing, it makes more sense towards the end with canon backing it up. 

Of course feel free to disagree as well. :)

upper-casey  asked:

You might have already explained this (and if so, sorry) but how would one even go about sending a donation for a signed playbill? Do you need to write a check? Do you send the playbill and then they sign it? Obviously, I'm new at this, sorry.

Okay, this post is gonna be long. All of the content is from Broadway Fan Mail, a site who, as the name suggests, specializes in Broadway Fan Mail. Unfortunately they haven’t updated their page in a while for newer shows, but the general information is still great. So heres all their information: 

1. Who should I send fan mail to? 

        You can send fan mail to any show on Broadway (or off-Broadway) that you like. You have two main options for places you can send things to:

        If you want a Playbill (or anything else) singed by more than one person (like the two leads of a show or the whole cast), send it to the stage manager of the show. To do this, just address your letter to “ATTN: Stage Manager” at the address of the theater where the show is playing.

        You can also send fan mail to your favorite actor/actress currently on Broadway. If you want anything personalized or signed by a single person, it is best to send it to them directly. You can also include personal things for the actor, such as a note saying just how much you admire them, a questionnaire for them to fill out, or a picture/drawing you want them to see. To do this, just send your package/letter to the actor at the theater where their show is.

2. What things should I send to the show/actor?

  • A letter! This is very important. You can find more information on what to put in the letter in question 4.
  • A self-addressed, stamped envelope (SASE). If you want to get anything back from the show/actor include a second envelope in the package/envelope you send to the show. This should be completely ready to send (already filled out with your address and proper postage to get it back to you) so that the actor can just put something inside and send it back to you. Also, make sure that the SASE envelope is big enough to fit a Playbill and whatever else you want them to send back to you! If you do not include a SASE, don’t expect to get anything back!

      Optional Items:

  • A playbill, poster, or other item that you already have, but want signed. If you have something special that you want signed, it is totally okay to send it to the person!  
  • If you are sending fan mail to a specific actor, you can include a questionnaire for them to fill out. You can ask them any question about life in the show, past acting history, dream roles they have, or really anything! Make sure that you don’t ask any really personal questions, or they probably won’t respond. Also, keep in mind that filling out questionnaires take actors time and they probably have a LOT of fans to answer; try to keep the questionnaires short, maybe 4-5 questions max. I’ve sent questionnaires to many different actors, and I have only gotten a few completed ones back. It is very common for actors to send signed/personalized Playbills back and ignore the questionnaires, so don’t be surprised or offended if this happens to you!

3. What things should I NOT send to the show/actor?

  • NEVER send ANY personal items that you really want back! It is okay to send Playbills or other items that you want signed, but keep in mind that a lot of fan mail never receives a response, and things might get lost in the mail. As a general rule, if you can live without something, it is okay to send it. But, if you would be majorly disappointed if you didn’t get it back, it is best to just keep it.

4. Does sending fan mail cost anything?

       In most cases, no! You only have to pay for the stamps on your SASE and the postage to get your package/letter to the theater! However, some shows do ask for donations to a charity (BCEFA) if you are requesting a cast-signed Playbill. Some shows do this and some don’t. If a show does request donations, they will probably just ask for a $10 check.

       If a show does request donations and you don’t send them a check with your original letter, they will most likely just send you a response asking you to resend your letter and include a check.      

Here’s a tip, though: if you are sending a letter to a specific actor in a show, you will RARELY get asked to donate. So, if you want a show Playbill, but you don’t have the money to donate, just send fan mail to individual actors, instead of stage managers.

So thats the most concise and thorough information I’ve ever found about sending fan mail, and it really applies to any Broadway show. You don’t have to include a Playbill, I sent a letter to Jessie Mueller and she sent back a personalized Playbill that I hadn’t even asked for! Also, if you include any art you’ve done theres a chance you might get featured on Twitter/Instagram because literally everyone in that cast LOVES fan art! :) Hope this answers most of your questions! I hope to send some fan mail soon and I will most definitely post my results!

Mick & Riley: steady out, i’m terrified

Here it is, 16k of what happened when Harry was in Brazil and the whole world found out that 1. he was dating Cecilia Wells and 2. Cecilia Wells was Riley Finch. So on we go into Harry’s POV of the events that occurred in and between chapters 35 and 36 of Nom de Plume, hope you enjoy! 

Brazil was magnificent, and Harry had a tattoo to prove it.

Harry was sure it would have been more magnificent if Leigh was lounging in the chair beside him, reading a book and wearing a bikini that would show off her subtle curves. He couldn’t wait to bring her on tour with him, though, to hang out backstage with her, hopefully sneaking off to see some sights on days off. There was only one month left of school for her, and although she hadn’t mentioned any plans, Harry hoped she wanted to come along for a couple of weeks. Considering that she’d nearly freaked out when he’d told her he loved her, however, he figured he’d made the right choice in not asking her to come to Brazil with him, as tempted as he’d been to extend the offer.

Live A Little (Part 3)

(In case you missed it, here’s part 2)

Masterlist

Staring at Ashton, you felt like everything was crashing down again.

“It’s not what it looks like I swear”

As soon as you said these words, you quickly glanced to look at Calum, who was now giving you a look you couldn’t quite decipher.

No? Than what the fuck does it look like?”

Hearing Ashton’s voice, you turned to face him, staying quite.

You knew what it looked like. 

Hell, just 15 seconds ago, you liked what it felt like. 

But now? 

You were completely confused.

I don't know, i just-”

Cutting you off, he laughed harshly.

You don’t know? Oh that’s fucking rich. After all the shit we’ve been through, you decided to just ignore me and move on to my best friend? Shit, who would have thought you were such a slut-”

Jumping off the bed, Calum was starting to match Ashton’s anger.

Stop calling her that.”

Furrowing his eyebrows, Ashton stared at Calum in disbelief. 

Are you defending her? For fuck’s sake you’re supposed to be my best friend, not hers. But then again, what kind of best friend tries to sleep with the girl who was my-”

Before he could finish his sentence, Bryana spoke up from behind him, the first time since Ashton came barging in.

“Ash why do you care so much?”

You saw his face falter before looking back to face her.

“I don’t care”

Then turning back to you, he made sure he held your eyes.

“She means nothing.”

Feeling like the wind just got knocked out of you, you turned your head to face the floor.

I just don’t think she should be here right now. She obviously wasn’t invited for a reason. No one needs a bitch around.”

It was at this point that Calum couldn’t take it anymore, he rushed forwards, pushing Ashton against the wall.

I swear to god, say one more bad thing about her and i’ll-”

“AND YOU’LL WHAT”

Pushing Calum back, Ashton started raising his fist to hit him.

Scared, you jumped off the bed, putting yourself in front of Calum as Bryana tried pulling Ashton away. 

GOD JUST STOP!”

Grabbing Calum’s hands, you tired to push him back. 

Looking back towards Ashton, you saw him clenching his jaw as he stared down at your hands against Calum’s. 

Ashton, you want to talk? Fine lets talk. Alone.”

Looking up to meet your eyes, you could tell he wasn’t just angry but… hurt?

No, I’m not leaving you with him” Calum said, trying to push you behind him.

Cal i have to do this” 

Giving his hand a slight squeeze, he looked down, giving her a pleading look to not make him leave.

You heard her mate, she wants to talk. Alone. Get out.”

Turning towards Ashton, you felt so frustrated. 

You understood why he was pissed. He had every right to be. 

But to treat his friend like shit? 

That wasn’t okay.

If you do anything to hurt her-”

“You really think i would hurt her? Lets remember who was her best friend first. Let’s remember who HAD her first”

Knowing what he meant, you didn’t understand what was going on between them. 

It’s like he was rubbing what happened between you and him in Calum’s face. 

Why? 

Both of you just stop. Calum i can handle myself okay? I’m fine. I promise”

Nodding his head, he reluctantly started walking out of the room, making sure to glare at Ashton the whole way. 

With Bryana right behind him, they both left the room, leaving you and Ashton to finally deal with each other.

Wasting no time, he jumped right into it.

Why did you leave?” 

Looking down, you knew you couldn’t face him when you spoke.

I was scared.”

“God, of what?”

OF LOSING YOU. LOSING MY BEST FRIEND”

Shaking his head, he walked over to the wall, sliding down to put his head in his hands.

Why would you lose me?”

“I don’t know”

Walking over to the wall, you slid down next to him.

Its not exactly an easy thing waking up naked to your best friend”

“But what does it matter? Its not like it meant anything!”

Pulling your knees into your chest, you couldn’t help but feel a sharp pain in your heart.

Noticing your reaction, Ashton instantly felt strange.

It didnt mean anything… Right?”

Shrugging, you didnt know what to say.

I mean… i don't know…. maybe”

Groaning, he threw his head back against the wall.

Jesus this is so fucked up”

Not the response you were hoping for, you started to get up. You couldn’t be here in the same room with him anymore.

Wait, stop. Don’t go.”

Getting up with you, he stared at you, looking as if he was in battle with himself.

Look… I just… Maybe…I feel… no… fuck… You need to realize this can’t work. We need to focus on our friendship, thats it”

Looking away, you felt the tears falling freely now. 

But why?”

Stepping closer, he wiped them off your face, sighing again.

Because”

Growing frustrated, you smacked Ashton’s hands off your face, stepping backwards.

Jesus Ashton, why can’t you just be a fucking man and say the truth! Im sick of you beating around the bush, acting like I’m too dumb to understand! Just fucking SAY IT!”

“BECAUSE I DONT FEEL THE SAME WAY ABOUT YOU!”

Feeling like you were just slapped in the face, you stayed quiet.

Fuck.. I didn't mean.. Oh man”

Walking away from you, he pinched the top of his nose, clearly torn about this.

Look i have Bryana now. She’s amazing and i can’t mess that up. I don’t even want to mess this friendship up. That’s all this is, a fucking friendship.” He said, sounding like he was trying to convince himself more than he was trying to convince you.

But, you knew there was still something he was hiding. 

Or at least lying about.

Then why do you care so much about what just happened with me and cal?”

Stopping, he gave you a straight look, trying to mask whatever he was feeling.

I dont. I just don’t think he’s the right one for you to be with. You know how his past is. You can do better.”

Scoffing, you laughed darkly.

What the fuck does his past have to do with anything. Why are you acting like this? So what if we might have hooked up if you hadn’t barged in. It wouldn’t have meant anything.”

“You don’t know that” he answered a little too quickly, looking away from you.

Completely done with the conversation, you weren’t holding anything back anymore.

What does that even mean! Ashton I’m not stupid, I can tell theres something you’re not telling me! Just spill it already!”

“It doesn’t matter.”

Walking up to him, you got in his face, yelling.

THEN WHY DO YOU CARE!”

“CANT YOU JUST DROP IT? I SAID IT DOESN’T MATTER! GET THE FUCK OVER IT! I ALREADY SAID I DONT WANT YOU! WHAT ELSE IS THERE TO EXPLAIN!”

Nodding your head, you stepped back.

You’re right, there is nothing to explain. Just like theres nothing more to this friendship. We always promised to keep no secrets between us, but that obviously changed. I know i fucked up by running away from this, but I’m owning up to it right now. And I’m so fucking sorry for leaving you alone. But I’m here now. I came here today to fix things. To be completely open with you. And i was. But you apparently can’t do the same for me. I know you’re hiding something, but you’re too much of a chicken shit to look me in the eye and tell me the truth. So I’m done. This friendship is done. I can’t pretend to be okay with this anymore. I have to go.”

Moving past him, you tried to walk out, but he wrapped his hand around your arm, pulling you to stay.

You don’t mean that. Please tell me you don’t mean that.”

His voice cracked at the end of his sentence. 

Looking at him, you gave him one last chance.

Tell me the truth”

Shaking his head, he let a few tears slip.

I can’t.”

Pulling your arm out from his grasp, you shrugged your shoulders.

Then i can’t be friends with a liar”

Opening the door, you walked out, leaving Ashton by himself.

Not even going to look for Calum to say goodbye, you walked right out the door, straight to your car.

The whole time you were driving, you stayed numb. Everything that just happened was like a blur.

Once home, it still didn’t hit you. 

Nothing felt real until you walked into your bedroom, catching sight of an old picture of you and Ashton from when you were younger. Walking up to it, you grabbed the frame of your dresser, finally feeling it all hit you.

The whole point of running away was because you were scared to lose him. Feelings or not, he was your best friend. 

But it didn’t even matter. 

You still lost him.

Curling up on your bed, you hugged the picture frame to your chest, slowly crying yourself to sleep.

It didnt last long.

The next thing you knew, you were hearing your doorbell chiming repeatedly.

Confused, you got up off the bed, stopping by your dresser mirror.

Jesus you looked like hell.

Running down the stairs, you looked through the peep hole to see Calum looking completely distressed, slightly pulling at his hair.

Confused, you opened the door, ready to ask him why he was here, but he started rambling right off the back, not letting you talk.

Please tell me what you told Ashton was not true.”

Staring at him, you didn’t know exactly what he meant.

Not giving you a chance to ask, he kept talking, answering your question.

What happened between us in that room was 100 percent real. At least for me it was. And i know it was for you because i felt it. You were getting lost in me the same way i know I’ve been lost in you for years.”

Letting your mouth drop, you couldn’t believe what was happening right now.

I know you think you have feelings for Ashton, but just consider the thought of being with me. Ive had the hugest crush on you ever since Ashton brought you around. Shit i think i might even love you. Ive just been to much of a pussy to say anything. But I’m done hiding around, I want you. Ashton may not realize how perfect you are but i do. Please just please give me a chance to make you feel like you’re the only one in the world.”

“Cal I-”

Not letting you finish, he rushed up, grabbing you face in his hands, and kissed you.

First stiff, you tried pushing him away but just like earlier, you felt yourself melting against him.

There was just something about him that made you feel… perfect.

When he pulled back, he stared in your eyes.

I know this is a lot to take in but i can’t let you go. Not the way ashton did.”

Moving to kiss you on your forehead, he backed away.

Don't say anything yet. Think this completely through, okay? ill wait forever if i have to. Just don’t wait around for a guy who obviously doesn’t know a good thing when its right in front of him”

Walking away, you watched him get into his car, never once looking back to you.

Closing the door, you didnt know how to feel.

What the fuck is going on today?

Shaking your head, you started to walk back to your room, completely dazed, hearing your phone chime.

Running up the stairs, you ran over to your bed, feeling your heart drop.

Holy shit this is not happening

Staring at your phone, you knew all hell was about to break loose.

You wanted to know the truth? 

You got it.

But now you didn’t know if you wanted it anymore.

You didn’t even know what you were supposed to do.

Or who you were supposed to choose.
