Ten Music Major Commandments

I have a Patreon!!

There are some basic things that I find myself repeating over and over when it comes to posts. While I am obviously going to continue explaining stuff and answering questions, I thought it might be good to explain some basics of my attitude towards musicianship as a whole. As there turned out to be ten things, we can consider these the Ten Music Major Commandments.


1. Thou shalt remember that no single audition will make or break a music major career.

Your career isn’t hanging in the balance just because you are auditioning for an important to school or orchestra or whatever. Unless you insult the director, sit on his cat, and start yelling slurs to the room as a whole, a single audition will not torpedo a career. You can always attend a different school, work with a different ensemble, or try again at a later date when you’re better prepared.


2. Thou shalt remember a music major is not a competition, it is a process of personal growth and improvement.

There are few quicker ways to kill your love of music than by comparing yourself to the inevitable “people who are better than you.” There will ALWAYS be people better than you. Use that as motivation to get better yourself, or just admire them for their skill.


3. Thou shalt remember that you can’t know what other people have gone through to get where they are.

If a freshman can play a piece you can’t perform as a senior, take a deep breath and chill. For that to be the case, they likely started earlier than you, had better training at an early age, were forced to practice more, or simply had different priorities when they were younger. You can’t know those circumstances, and you can’t know what you’d have done if you been in their shoes. Don’t judge people who are older but haven’t yet reached your skill level - you can’t know what they have dealt with. So just admire their abilities and perseverance, and mind your own business if you can’t think of anything nice to say.


4. Thou shalt remember that if you decide music may be better as a hobby, that’s okay. It is not a personal failing.

Simply put, not everyone feels comfortable betting their future on the roulette wheel that is the potential career outlook of a music​ major. Music is stressful, it requires a lot of emotional labor and self-sufficiency, and sometimes that’s just not what a person wants. If that person is you, that’s okay. You don’t have to try and make a living making music for it to be your passion. That’s what community ensembles and after-work gigs are for. And if it turns out music isn’t your true passion? That’s okay too. Things can be important to one part of your life but move to the background later. That doesn’t mean you weren’t dedicated to it when you loved it - it just means you have moved on.


5. Thou shalt take care of yourself - taking a break is better than burning out.

Recently, someone I knew dropped out of school completely, essentially because of musical burnout. They had simply given too much of themselves to their music major, and didn’t have any emotional reserves for the other hard parts of life. Do your best to take care of yourself, because you are the most important part of the music you make. You are the true force behind the performance - that doesn’t change just because you need tools (your instrument) to make music. If you feel overwhelmed, as a music major often is, take a break. It’s okay to rest, I promise.


6. Thou shalt write your schedule in stone, but follow it like the Pirate Code.

It is VERY IMPORTANT to have a schedule. Musicians have to handle too many classes and performances and rehearsals and other responsibilities to try to get by without a strict schedule. When you write one up for the semester, imagine each day, and try to be realistic. You should assume that you’ll live each day exACTly like it is written. If it seems impossible, then reschedule stuff.

However, when you're​ actually living your final schedule, remember you can be flexible. If you know you can manage your assignments later, then absolutely use your assigned study time to go on that adventure with your friends. You still need to live your life, after all. Balance is the key, here.


7. Thou shalt never be afraid to ask someone a polite question.

While it is a personal pet peeve of mine when people talk out of turn (especially when they don’t know what they are talking about!), I firmly believe there is always time to answer a question. If you want to know more about something, or if you are confused, find someone who knows the answer and politely, at a convenient time, ask them. This means asking a question to clarify important class material during class, and asking that nitpicky question about that tangent your professor went on during their office hours. The main point is to ask!


8. Thou shalt try to practice at least once a weekend.

Weekend practicing is honestly one of the hardest things for me to do. However, I always feel awesome after I do it! Taking a two day break from practice can be good for the mental health, but if you aren’t practicing just because you can’t be bothered, then maybe you should try bothering. Practice is good for you, and​ it builds character. Go practice.


9. Thou shalt treat yourself like you would your best friend.

If you wouldn’t make a comment about them, don’t make it about yourself. You are your first, foremost, and most permanent friend. Take care of yourself, and build yourself up. No one ever became an amazing musician by beating themselves up at every failure. The best musicians take mistakes and use them as fuel to get even better. Stop beating yourself up and start being friendly to the only person who is guaranteed to be around forever - yourself.


10. Thou shalt take a deep breath.

Sometimes we can get so lost inside our own heads that we forget how to leave. The next time you suspect you’re on an anxiety spiral, find somewhere quiet and do you best to just breathe. You’re okay. You are not going to die/get expelled/get thrown in Bad Music Major Jail. That’s not even a thing. Do your best to keep things in perspective: “it’s just one class/jury/audition/performance. There will be more classes/juries/auditions/performances. No matter how this one goes, life will go on.”

Because it will. Life goes on.

You’ve got this.

Ne:

I was having a discussion with ENTP fellow schemer for world domination friend on Ne-dom, and how it can be frustrating to try and express Ne in a way others can understand. We got into a chat about reality vs. Ne expectations (basically, think of the biggest, most dramatic positive conclusion you can, and you’re halfway there) and he sent me this.

If reality is the “actual” method, Ne expectations are the Indy method:

Ne does that, all the time; it goes for the biggest, most dramatic, most coolest interpretation / expectation ever

It’s not just “I’m gonna write a novel, and it will take me months or even years and be lots of hard work, and then I might achieve mediocre success with it,” it’s “I’m gonna write a novel, and it’ll be a best seller, and they’ll make a miniseries out of it, and I’ll be famous, and on Jay Leno!” *

It’s “Gosh, I hope in 34 years when I’m President, they don’t find out I copied that library CD!” (When you are literally the worst at follow through and don’t even want to be president, but dude, things bite you in the butt later and since you are clearly going to be famous someday, you need to be careful!)

Someone says PICNIC and Ne thinks of the most incredible picnic ever, with a gorgeous setting and amazing food and neat little picnic tables, where they will either be heroic or meet their one true love, and you get there and it’s a crappy little spot near a trickle of water they call a ‘stream’ and the sandwiches aren’t even that good, they’re just normal, and Ne goes – this is it?!?

Someone says we’re going HERE, and Ne builds up this amazing thing in their head, and when you get there, it’s nothing near like you imagined it would be, because in your imagination it was the most amazing thing ever and in reality it’s … ordinary.

If reality is a pile of rocks, Ne expectations are a Gothic castle full of enchanted furniture with a fire-breathing dragon on the roof and a wizard in the basement and some heroic role for them to fulfill, because dammit, reality is boring.

The object ceases to be what it is, and is polished under Ne’s “it would be so much BETTER if…”

Ne is, literally, only gobsmacked when something is so magnificent, their imagination cannot improve on it. :P

* I should probably also mention that mediocrity is death for a Ne-dom. It’s either total disaster (no one cares) or world-famous (with stalkers and journalists hounding you), there’s no middle ground. :P

Man oh man! Where do I start?…We met on Tumblr a couple of years ago through the black out. She made a post about studying late so sent a DM later that evening asking her if she was still studying. She didn’t answer until late the next day and we immediately hit it of exchanging poetry and expressing our love for comics. Before I could ask for her number she asked for mine. I’ve never been so comfortable with some one in my life. It was like we were old friends reconnecting. The conversations just flowed on throughout the night and before we knew into the morning. After talking via FaceTime for a while I randomly just came out and said “ you know you’re my girlfriend right?” and without hesitation she replied “ Yes!”… I wasn’t expecting that response (i honestly don’t know what response I was expecting, but i was so hype she said yea). With her living in New York and me in Alabama it became a long distance relationship. It definitely wasn’t easy…but it was definitely worth it. By the time we finally got to visit each other our foundation of communication was so strong it was like we almost grew up together. Being with her has been nothing short of amazing. She is one of the smartest and most caring and loving person I know and she deserves it all. For the rest of my life all I want to do is take care of her, support her, love her, and build a family. She’s truly the best thing to ever happen to me and I thank God for her. I love you baby @elevatementality-mj
You know we getting married right?! Lol😘

My husband and I have been together since 2005. That’s 12 years now.

12 years.

That’s a long, long time.

We’ve been together since I was 18. I’ve grown a lot, and so has he. We’re very different people than we were 12 years ago.

But by communicating with each other, sharing with each other, our thoughts, hopes, fears, joys… Even though he and I go years sometimes without sharing common active interests, we stay talking about it, about ourselves, about each other.

12 years.

Communication is how you grow with someone and build and keep love.

Noctluna is one of, if not the most amazing, honest, realistic, and relatable relationships I’ve ever seen depicted in fiction. Because it grows with time and with communication. They grow up together in this way, and they grow closer in this way.

It’s why I love it so much.

They don’t love each other for the action-genre trope of “We went through hell together so clearly we’re meant for each other.”

They have a real relationship that has weathered time and distance.

12 years, and a war.

Honestly, you nailed it! seasons but with more family friendly activities? I feel like sims 4 is still so aimed towards YA, but hopefully parenthood is a step in the right direction!

7.describe your dream stuff pack?

As boring as it sounds, a cleaning stuff pack or a bathroom one, like sims 2 had, thats the dream!

RFA, V + Saeren reacting to pregnant MC (with their baby)

ThaNK YOU SO MUCH for this prompt, it was so nice to write for ^^

Zen

  • At first you were a little worried to announce it
  • Getting pregnant so early probably wasn’t gonna be the best thing for his career?
  • But no people were actually so excited about it as well
  • And Zen was definitely the most exciting oh god
  • “MC, they’ll be so perfect and I’ll love them forever"
  • This kid would grow up with the best self esteem ever
  • Because he’d probably always build them up
  • And would make sure they knew that they were amazing and have amazing parents
  • He’d be the greatest dad ever tbh
  • And would get you loads of flowers during the pregnancy
  • He’d dote on you so much and would make sure you weren’t putting yourself under any stress
  • Would probably be the one to sing lullabies
  • Or would try to get you to sing a duet with him
  • Don’t even get me started on the issue with his ponytail that kid would never be bored save this boy

Yoosung

  • Have you seen the after ending
  • The slightest mention of him acting childish and he’s just
  • “hEY you know what would be a great idea??”
  • When you told him you were pregnant his face just lit up
  • The entire pregnancy he’d talk to your bump and would grin so much when he did
  • Like this was something that he made too
  • You can bet he’d be there for you because you’re the one looking after the child right now
  • And he’d would love shopping for baby clothes
  • And toys
  • So many cuddly toys
  • This kid wouldn’t even need pillows
  • Every time he saw a cute toy you’d get hit with the puppy dog eyes
  • Which your kid seems to inherit save yourself
  • Like you need so much willpower not to give in to this boy
  • “Oooh MC can we get s puppy too so the kid can grow up with them and it’ll be so cute!”
  • But when the baby is born he can’t resist
  • Yoosung would try so hard to make sure you knew how much he loves both you and your child
  • He’d do that thing where a child babbles on about something that makes no sense at all
  • And would just agree to it in a low-key adorable voice
  • Who knew this child could be such a good dad but here you are

Jumin

  • Oh damn i can see him totally wanting a kid
  • And he’d be determined to be better than his dad
  • He’d love to take care of you through the pregnancy
  • But ofc he’s still pretty busy
  • So around the beginning of the pregnancy he’d be taking a little time off
  • But nearer to the end you’d find him staying home a little longer every month
  • Eventually he’d try to do as much as he could from home (still taking responsibility because you’re still an able person but he really wants you to be happy)
  • To make up for any time he was away he’d arrange for massages and general pampering stuff for you
  • To make sure you were as relaxed as possible
  • And then he’d come home and spend all his time with you
  • Lots of little affection from him at all times
  • He’d ensure the kid was getting the best life he could give them
  • Like he’d spoil them no doubt
  • But he’d try and keep boundaries who knows if he can stick to them but he’d rEALLY try

Jaehee

  • You guys chose a sperm donor and you can bet Jaehee looked into potential donors super well
  • You know she’d be an amazing mother
  • She pretty much adopted everyone in the RFA and took care of them
  • And you can bet she’d want to be there for the child as much as possible
  • When you decided you were ready for a baby you decided to carry pretty quickly
  • But she’d try and repay you anyway
  • Like you were carrying a child she’d want to show you how amazing you are
  • She’d take over the shop and make sure you get plenty of rest
  • And everything would be perfect I mean you’re both completely prepared for it
  • You’d be taken care of by her lets face it
  • There’d be regular checks that you were okay and taking care of yourself whenever she wasn’t there
  • And once the kid had been born
  • moTHER JAEHEE HAS BEEN UNLEASHED
  • She’s so responsible but then since they’re a child it’s toned down to the perfect level and you just?? are you sure she doesn’t already have a child somewhere??
  • She wouldn’t be too strict but wouldn’t let her kids get away with everything
  • They’d grow up in such a lovely environment and would just be such a great person

Seven

  • When you told him he was pregnant he thought you were pranking him
  • So he was just laughing it off the whole time
  • Three positive tests later he kinda realised that this wasn’t a joke
  • And god was he happy
  • Would probably make a joke about how he wasn’t too surprised with how active you two were ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)
  • But he’d be low-key freaked
  • Like is he really ready for this??
  • The answer is yes though he is sUCH a great dad
  • Like before the kid is born you can bet he’s practising the dad jokes
  • And after the jokes multiply
  • He said he has a good memory but it’s like at least half of what he says is a pun?? how does he remember all of these-
  • The child has such a loving and fun environment though and it’s wonderful
  • You spent days convincing him that no a fire breathing toy was nOT A SUITABLE PRESENT FOR THEIR FIRST BIRTHDAY  
  • And he’s still not entirely convinced but still
  • a small part of you is praying that the child isN’T LIKE THIS LITTLE SHIT
  • Your child has so much support and it’s wonderful
  • Sometimes you have to take a step back and think how this memer is such a responsible person sometimes

Saeran

  • Oh shit this kid’s a mess
  • “The hELL DO YOU MEAN IM GONNA BE A FATHER??”
  • A million and one things are just flying through his head at once
  • Of course you assure him he’s gonna be a great dad
  • And he feels the edge taken off at least
  • But still he spends the entire time low-key panicking
  • He’s so hesitant at first with everything
  • Like he finds out you’re pregnant and wants to make sure he’s doing nothing wrong
  • But he needs assurance help him please
  • After a while he kinda goes back to normal with looking after you
  • With a little more focus on making sure you’re not under pressure or stress or anything
  • And he actually does such a better job than he seems to think?
  • When he sees the kid for the first time though
  • It’s like love at first sight
  • This is something that he can protect and stay with and he loves them
  • All this worry he’s been feeling just melts and he suddenly feels like he’d do anything for either of you

V

  • This guy was made to be a parent and you cannot convince me otherwise
  • He’d be always there to make sure you were okay and would do anything for you
  • Again there would be a lot of affection and doting with this boy
  • would probably do one of those really creative pregnancy photo time-lapse things and it’s wonderful
  • There’s so little to say other than he’s literally the ideal dad
  • So kind and loving and just wants you to be happy
  • Just give this man a child already please
Soft as A Badger, Cunning as A Snake - Chapter 4

Reader is a popular yet mysterious Slytherin and has every boy falling at her feet, but only has eyes for her shy potions class partner, a Hufflepuff boy named Newt.

Word Count: 2550

Warnings: None

A/n: Thank you so much for all the support!!! I love u guys so much :’) Also I made this chapter a bit longer than usual, enjoy!
P.s. I’m thinking of making the next chapter filled with fluff and a protective Newt! get excited ;) 

CHAPTER 1 - CHAPTER 2 - CHAPTER 3


Soft. Soft snores came from his slightly open mouth, his brows creasing together as he was dreaming. You ran a hand through his soft hair, receiving a cute murmur in response. It had been a bit odd after what happened at the library. It felt odd, but right.  After Newt had declared his love for you, you couldn’t comprehend just what was happening. You wanted to sing with happiness, scream to the heavens that the boy you cared so deeply for had finally let you back into his life, and not only that, but he loved you. He LOVED you. But the only thing you could get out was a soft “take me to my room”. And now you were here. Laying in your empty dorm with the boy- man of your dreams sleeping soundly, head on your chest. It felt as if all the stars had fallen out of the sky at once, and Newt held them all. He held your entire universe now. He had so much control, so much force in your life. You didn’t care if the girls you shared your dorm with saw that you had a boy in your bed, because the sight was so ethereal, so soft, that you doubt even a Dementor would dare disturb it.

Neon green.

Jungkook rubbed the sleep from his eyes and squinted. Nope, it definitely wasn’t a dream.

“Kookie, you’re awake!” A sweet voice rang through the air, further confirming the scene in front of the maknae. Jungkook quickly made his way into the kitchen and grabbed your shoulders, holding you at arm’s length.

“Y/N, what the hell are you wearing?!” Jungkook hissed, gesturing at your body.

You looked down at the oversized bright green t-shirt and smiled sheepishly. “Sorry oppa, I was too lazy to look for my own clothes so I just grabbed a random t-shirt. You don’t mind, do you?” You replied as you turned back to the counter, grabbing a cup.

Jungkook shook his head fiercely as he stopped and spun you around once more. “I’m talking about that!” He retorted, gesturing madly at your bare legs. “You can’t just wear that and walk around the dorm! You watched Yaman’s TV last week, Jimin even exposed the members as perverts! You just can’t walk around like this! Only I’m allowed to see you like this!” He snapped as he wrapped his arms around your waist territorially.

You bit your lip at Jungkook’s glare, trying not to focus on where his hand was placed on your body. You pouted and clasped your hands together, twiddling your thumbs. “But oppa,” you drawled out. “I don’t want to go back in and change, it takes too much time. Besides, I’m sure the other members won’t mind. I’ll change after breakfast, okay?” You promised, trying to win him over with your aegyo.

“I’m sure they won’t mind seeing you like that…” Jungkook muttered under his breath.

You frowned cutely and tugged on the sleeve on his t-shirt. “Please?” You begged, dragging out the “e”.

Sighing, the maknae rubbed his face. “Okay, fine.” He grumbled, finally giving in.

You immediately dropped your frown and grinned, clapping happily. “Thank you oppa! You,” You cheered as you wrapped your arms around his muscular build. “Are the most understanding, kind, sweet, amazing, perfect boyfriend ever!” You praised as you went on his tiptoes and pressed a kiss to his collarbone.

Jungkook exhaled in defeat and lifted you up so you were sitting on the counter. “However,” He cut off your compliments. “If anyone, anyone makes one inappropriate comment, we are heading straight into the bed room and changing, understand?” he grunted.

You nodded vigorously and smiled brightly. “Sir yes sir!” You replied, pecking his cheek in gratitude.

The maknae glanced down at your bare thighs and smirked. “You know, you should be proud of me.” He commented as he trailed his finger down the side of your thigh.

You cocked your head in confusion. “Why?” You questioned, a little distracted by the feather light touch of his fingertips.

He leaned in close and pressed a kiss to your jaw. “Because honestly, if I had it my way, and the hyungs weren’t here, I’d take you right here and now. Sex in the kitchen sounds fun, doesn’t it? Imagine, you bent over the kitchen table…” Jungkook whispered invitingly.

You blushed a deep pink at the maknae’s suggestive tone. “Jeon Jungkook!” You scolded playfully as you whacked his arm.  “I don’t get it, how are you horny this early in the morning?” You retorted and shook your head in disbelief.

“I would be too. You know, you wearing nothing but a t-shirt doesn’t really help our testosterone, Y/N.” A voice came from the door.

Jungkook whirled around and you peeked over his shoulder to find Jimin leaning against the doorway. The raven haired boy ran his hand through his messy bedhead. “By the way, you should wear that more often. Wakes us right up, if you know what I mean.” Jimin continued as he smirked and shot an appreciative look at your exposed legs. He pushed himself off the doorway and turned around, raising his hand in the air as a good bye.

As Jungkook glared at Jimin’s disappearing figure down the hall in silence, you carefully tapped his shoulder. “Kookie…?” You questioned in a small voice. “Are you o- yah!” You squealed as the maknae pulled you off the counter and threw you over his shoulder like a burlap bag.

“That’s it. We are going to go change right now.” Jungkook’s voice growled predatorily as he sauntered down the hall towards his bedroom.

You squirmed and kicked your legs in protest. “Put me down! Put me down- ouch!” You screeched as a firm hand came in contact with your bottom. “What was that for?!” You cried as you felt the stinging aftermath of the spank.

You heard the bedroom door open as Jungkook replied, “That was for making the process of carrying you difficult.” You yelped as he dropped you onto the bed, making you bounce on the mattress. He trapped you between his arms and pushed you down until your back was flat against the cushiony platform. Towering over you, he used one arm to hold himself up as he slowly unbuttoned his shirt with the other. “Besides…” He trailed off as he smirked suggestively.

“You said you liked it rough, didn’t you?”

btw if youre curious as to what I was alluding to when I mentioned one side hubristically commissioning victory medals in advance only to end up being utterly destroyed i was talking about the Battle of Cartagena de Indias which is probably one of the most utterly brutal defeats suffered by the British military and definitely one of its worst upset losses.

Like basically the British were hoping (assumed) they were going to gain a foothold in mainland South America, capture one of the most important Spanish ports for the export of gold and be able to gain control over the sea-lanes in the Carribbean. They sent an invasion force of 30,000 which I think might be the largest military force ever assembled in the Americas at the time against a Spanish garrison of 4,000 and the tl;dr is that the British suffered upwards of a 90% casualty rate. Like they literally ran out of sailors to man the ships and even after abandoning a bunch of intact vessels they were still forced to more or less press-gang foot-soldiers into manning the vessels.

And the way they lost is amazing to because it was like literally the most incompetently managed military expedition I’ve ever seen. For example this invasion force of 30,000 that was intended to assault a heavily fortified military port and one engineer for the entire army and he fucking died during the middle of the operation. And since they no longer had the one engineer they brought with them it was decided that during the final desperate assault on Fort San Lazaro wouldnt be done with a siege-battery because no one knew how to build one but rather they would have soldiers just run up to the fort’s walls with ladders and climb up it Lord of the Rings style. They planned to have the assault happen at night to provide some cover of darkness but because the leadership was so utterly incompetant they werent able to begin the attack until 4am ie; right around the fucking break of dawn and thats when they were fucking beginning the attack. So not only were was the attack on Fort San Lorenzo basically lemmings jumping into meat grinder but it turns out the “siege ladders” they brought were ten-feet too short. So imagine being a regular soldier that is carrying a ladder under a hail of gun and cannon fire and bloodshed and you finally reach the walls and push them up only to find out that your ladders were too fucking short and you couldnt scale the walls even if you stood on the top rung.

And back in London people were so self-assure of victory they were already minting medals and singing songs of how valiant Admiral Vernon and General Wentworth had captured the jewel of Spanish South America. 

I am truly amazed...

At the slapping together of three of the most random fucking couples ever (Jessick, Tara/Whatsherface-Denise?, Abraham/Sasha), with literally no build up at all save Jessick (if you want to call it build up), but TWD’s taking a millennia and a half to acknowledge the couples right in their fucking faces—

THAT YOU, YOURSELF MARKET, TWD/AMC. Like, are you shitting me right now? And no it doesn’t matter if everybody doesn’t ship them, and no– no one is promised anything but you can’t and shouldn’t deny that these couples have a tremendous following and support and yet…

I don’t get TWD, I seriously don’t.

Doctor Who and me

Ever since I was little, I mean tiny, the TV has been my best friend. Growing up as a queer kid in rural Lancashire in the early 80’s That and my Commodore 64 were my only escape. I watched everything, but especially Doctor Who. My earliest TV memory was Peter Davison in Doctor Who in Four to Doomsday, I remember running into the lounge, running away from the music, running back in and hiding behind the couch, leaving when it got too much. I’ve been a Doctor Who fan ever since. The first time I remember seeing someone I wanted to be when I grew up it was Sophie Aldred as Ace. And I was heart broken when it was cancelled. As time went on I was a casual fan, I’d watch anything Doctor Who related when it came on the TV, whether it was BBC four showing old episodes, or the BBC’s “Doctor Who Night” with sketches by the members of the League of Gentlemen.

When it came back my passion was fired up again, stronger than when I was a kid, and my friendship with Toby Hadoke, who is one of the most knowledgeable Doctor Who fan I’ve ever met really cemented that. About ten years ago he was just starting an Edinburgh fringe run of his show “Moths Ate My Doctor Who Scarf” a show all about growing up as a Doctor Who fan, and how it helped him build a relationship with his kids. It’s an amazing show, and I suggest you find yourselves a copy of it on CD or something, it’s ace. I was fortunate enough to drive Toby on the tour that followed and saw his show over 40 times.

Driving up and down the country I got to fill out the gaps in my knowledge. The excitement when Toby got help with the show from Russell T Davies, and then David Tennant recorded some bits for the show was immense, like touching a world of dreams that had seemed to perfect and out of reach, and now it wasn’t, it was a tangible thing. And that’s as close as I thought I’d get to it.

Then last year, I accidentally ended up with an acting career. Honestly, I’d not thought about acting since I quit my performing arts A-level in 1996, I was having a tough time, I was skint, I’d broken my leg and couldn’t work and suddenly someone passed me on an open casting call for Banana; Russell T Davies new series. I honestly never thought I’d get it. And then I did. And then two days later I was walking through the offices of the production company with Andy Pryor, the casting director of Doctor Who, when former show runner Russell T Davies came bounding out of his office and greeted me, my head was spinning, then I got sat in a room waiting to go into the read through with Andrew Hayden Smith, who’d been in David Tennant’s first Cybermen story. I thought how lucky I was to be alive and to get to do this. It was an honour and a privilege.

Anyway cut forward a year. I’m kind of thinking “well acting was fun, maybe I’ll never get cast in anything else though.” When my agent sent me a message that I’d got an audition for Doctor Who.

I got it. I got the job. I had to keep it silent. But I GOT THE JOB!

When I went down for the read through and saw my name on the table next to Jenna Coleman’s it suddenly started to feel real.

It is genuinely the greatest job I could ever have imagined getting. Everything about it is magical. I’m enjoying every day of filming and cherishing it, because you never know if you’ll ever get to do anything like this again. I only hope that I do the role and the show justice, and that you all enjoy it. For me it’s the gig of a lifetime.

do you ever find a fic with the most amazing premise, and then you start reading and it’s just……..so….bad….so…so….bad

I regret this post. I no longer feel this way. this was a bad post. it’s unnecessary and builds up nothing and no one. feeling similarly to this post is not bad or evil, but it’s discouraging to writers who do not deserve that. it’s a sentiment that, I feel, should be felt, and then let go, not shared and broadcasted. I no longer feel this way.

About a year ago, I was running a personal blog on Tumblr when I came across these three Kingdom Hearts RP blogs (askthefiremaster, foxyroxy813 and disorganizedkhlooser) and I followed them out of curiosity. I ended up interacting with both the muses and the muns simply because of how much fun it looked. Eventually, it led me to starting up an RP blog of my own, and thus, ask-the-cloaked-schemer-06 was born.

In the last four months, I’ve somehow managed to get over 300 followers. Now, I know there are a lot of blogs out there that have double, triple, probably even four times as many followers. But for me? This is a huge deal. And it truly means a lot to me that any of you actually care enough about my little trash baby, and about myself, to interact and follow me.

So without further ado, I present my follow forevers.

♥  M y  S o u l  ♥
(*The people with whom I regularly interact, the ones who tend to attack my askbox or vice versa, the ones who will always always make me smile. Or cry, because some of you like to really tug those heartstrings*)

askthenewlyinfected - A truly writer who’s created not just one, but three different OC’s and managed to blend perfectly into whatever fandom she chooses. I love everything that’s developed between our muses. While they’ve recently… done the do… prior to that, it was just a very antagonistic relationship, with poor Andiax constantly at a loss to deal with Zexion’s (literal) mind games. I haven’t had much interaction with the mun, but she just seems so smart and awesome and squee! <3
bloodrosesandgrace - Not only is the mun a total sweetheart, but this Marluxia has my fucking heart. Her drag!verse will have you in tears, though whether its in pain or in laughter… depends on the mood of the mun. Marly is so different in her hands than he is in canon, and I love it. Because Marluxia drives me up a damn wall, but in her blog, I just want to hold him close and love him forever. Most of the time, I want to do the same thing with the mun too because she’s a precious cinnamon roll that is too precious for this world.
divinus-crepusculum - Listen, in all seriousness, if you aren’t following this blog, you need to. If you like Isa, you will love what she’s done for him. If you don’t like Isa, you will love what she’s done for him. Not only is the mun a phenomenal artist, but she’s so imaginative and she’s so brilliant. It would seriously be in your best interest to follow her.
hopesradiance - Oh, I don’t have enough words to describe how much I love this Kairi and the mun. I’ve seen norted Kairi’s (although none do it as well as corruptedseventh), and I’ve seen canon-Kairi’s. This is easily the first Kairi that falls between the two. She’s not quite evil, but she’s also not the sweet, precious, always-kind “princess” that some people have come to expect. Kairi’s got a streak of fire going through her, and for the record, so does the mun.
ixthemelodiousnocturneix - There are few people I’ve met in my lifetime whose writing style matches mine, and that’s a wonderful thing. Because everyone writes differently, and that’s what makes reading so amazing. But the way this mun and I managed to connect with our writing… it’s like nothing I’ve ever seen. Truly, she is marvelous, and if you want a truly amazing Demyx/Emyd blog to follow, do not hesitate to follow her. She’s got talent beyond anything you’ll ever see.
liberumcaelum - So many words come to mind, both for Sora and Cole. The interactions between Sora and Ienzo have literally resulted in me getting messages saying that this was the last ship they would have ever pictured, but due to our threads, SoraxIenzo have practically become their OTP. Cole though… is easily one of the most amazing people you could ever know in your entire life. He’s friendly and sweet, he’s smart and funny, and overall, he’s just a genuinely good person. I build up a lot of walls, and he came crashing through all of them. If you’re ever presented with an opportunity to get to know him, and you pass it by, you may very well be passing on the chance to get to know one of the best people in the entire world. No matter what the future holds, my heart will forever be his.
lxndwyrm - I’ve actually, by my own nerves, had very little interaction, muse-to-muse, with this blog. However, from what I’ve seen, they encompass the character perfectly. Moreover, the mun in-and-of-themselves is truly a gift to this world. They’re always one of the first people to comment or message me whenever I seem even vaguely upset or distressed about something. And really, they’re like that with everyone. You don’t find a lot of people in the world that are so kind-hearted, and I’m so lucky to know them because I really don’t deserve to have such an awesome person that cares about me.
marik-luzil - Ah, Marik. Another OC that’s managed to blend into their chosen fandom with almost unnatural ease. It actually took me quite some time to realize that Marik was an OC, because the backstory seemed so… perfect that I seriously doubted by own Final Fantasy memory and had to rack my brain for a few hours before I realized he was an OC. The mun, as well, has always been so enthusiastic and interactive, and I love the relationship that’s built not only between the muses, but between us as well. They’re so wonderful to talk to and they actually live a couple of states away, so it’s always nice to have someone who understands the complexities of New England weather.
melodious-mullet-number-nine - One of the first Demyx blogs I followed and gah! Most of my interactions, with anyone, have been fluffy or smutty or just pure hatred (again, looking at you corruptedseventh). This is one of very few muses who’ve interacted with my trash baby in so many different situations: fluffy, platonic, angry, smutty, playful, cute… it’s really helped bring a lot of character development to Zexion that I don’t often get, because I tend to RP with Ienzo mostly. PLUS THE MUN IS SUCH A SWEET MARSHMALLOW AND I WANT TO SQUISH THEIR FACE! OMG!
oriturlux - Us cuties will always have to stick together, and I am so so so amazed by the fucking talent behind this Riku! From the amount of effort they put into their M!A’s, to their writing style, to the backstory given, to the way they interact with everyone and anyone who pops up. THIS IS A CLASS ACT RIKU AND YOU NEED TO FOLLOW THEM! Not to mention, the mun is wondrous, and even if they get a little goofy when they’re overtired, like I said before, us cuties have to stick together! <3
sensualroxas - Oh Roxas… if only I could bring Ienzo in to say what he thinks. A lot of my ships, with any muse, were either prediscussed or they were just thrown into a relationship in our first thread. But these two… Ienzo and Roxas were at each others throats so badly until one day, the mun and I realized that somewhere along the way, THESE TWO FUCKING MORONS SOMEHOW FELL FOR EACH OTHER?! As for the mun, oh shemakesmesmilesomuchandsheissuchasenpai! <3 Seriously, she checks in when I’m upset, she sends me pictures and songs to cheer me up and I’m so very very lucky to have such a beautiful, wonderful and amazing person in my life!
thecreepygunsman - I wish she and I were able to interact more often, but there’s a pretty massive time difference. But she’s easily one of my best friends, and she’s so… perfect in every way. When I’m down, or feeling bad about myself in general, she knows what to say to cheer me up, and she’s just so loving. She’s so polar opposite from her muse, which makes her portrayal of him that much more amazing. I think anyone who can write their muse is talented, but when you have nothing in common with them… it just truly shows how in touch with their muse they are. Rose, I do adore you, my dear. <3
thenameiscrow - I was always so afraid to interact with them at first because everything I saw from them was pure gold, and I was just so not worthy of them. Until I got to know the mun, and Ienzo got to know Crow, and now the two are just… inseperable. Crow is easily one of the most developed ships I’ve started with Ienzo, and for that, I will be forever grateful. The mun’s portrayal in its entirety makes me want to go out and buy the game, and I’ve been bribing my friend Jaden to hide the next copy that comes into his store so I can get it. The mun too… she’s great. She’s always open to plotting, she geeks over headcanons with me, and she lets me obsess over her muse, especially when he’s got glasses on. Everything about this entire blog is just so amazing.
unoraptormon - I started off with my little blurb about an OC, and I’ve come full circle back to another one. Ah, Harley. Ienzo’s feelings toward this particular muse tend to sway. On the one hand, he’s crazy about Harley. On another, he is horrified of Uno. Such a well-developed character, the amount of detail she’s put into their backstory, the amount of research and everything. The day she makes it big and gets famous, I’m gonna be at the front of the line to get her autograph. Their mun is just so wonderful, and so sweet, and she’s always available if you need someone to talk to. She’s got such a big heart. I count my lucky stars every day that I know such a beautiful person.

3 reasons i should read the foxhole court....go!

okay wow don’t do this i’m the worst at this stuff but okay 

  • reason numer 1) the main character is a dumb idiot who has been through so much shit but he still is such an amazing person and so fucking cute you’ll end up just wanting to wrap him into a blanket and protect him with your life. trust me, it’s inevitable. plus he’s demisexual!!
  • reason number 2) the books talk about some important issues like child abuse, mental illness and rape and it’s about people who have been through so much shit and they are still not completely okay they are still coping with it and trying to build a new life, they’re all fucked up in some way and their stories are just so important 
  • reason number 3) the romance is such a slow-burn and the most amazing relationship i’ve read about in a long time. they talk so much about consent and boundaries!! they will make you cry and smile and laugh and then cry again bc the fandom keps writing angsty fanfiction

and i’m going to cheat and add

  • reason number 4) the fandom!! it’s one of the most amazing fandoms i’ve ever been in. it’s small but so amazing to new fans, we’ll all welcome you with open arms and cry with you and send you pictures of cute animals if you’re sad and give you angsty headcanons and some fluff. 

honestly please read the books they’re amazing (tho check out the triggers and stay safe!!)
