Tony couldn’t seep. Sometimes he managed a few hours if he was tired enough, so usually he went to the gym and worked out until he was exhausted. Tonight, though, he found the gym already occupied: Barnes, with his hair tied up, working steadily at the heavy bag. Normally Tony would make an awkward comment and leave him to it, but instead he just heads for the opposite side of the gym. After setting up at one of the far treadmills, Tony worked his way to a easy run. Barnes was laying his fists rhythmically into the bag, and the quiet thumping was sort of strangely soothing. Between the running and the thumping, Tony slipped into a near-trancelike state.
And then Barnes let out an ungodly howl, drew back his left fist, and slammed it straight through the heavy bag with a roar of, “DIE A THOUSAND BURNING DEATHS!”
Tony fell off the treadmill, scrambled to his feet, and booked it to the elevator.

Plagiarized fics - asking for help from the 1D fandom
Hi everyone! I’m poking my head in your door from the Haikyuu fandom to ask you guys for help. I have spoken to quite a few people in the One Direction fandom thus far and I have been overwhelmed by their kindness, support, and how fast everyone I talked to acted to help me and my friend get this sorted out.
It came to my and my best friend ellessey-writes’s attention (confusing names, sorry! I’m Esselle) this morning that many of our fics had been stolen by the Tumblr/AO3 user Fruxoo, who has since deleted her accounts.
Here are two screenshots of Fruxoo’s fics, posted in April. The first is a direct copy of my story Hunger, completed last June 2016. The second is the summary from Ellie’s story Tea and Sympathy, posted January of this year. The entire text of every fic Fruxoo stole has been copied almost exactly word for word from our fics, changing only the names and other relevant character info.
I messaged her privately and asked that she post an explanation on Tumblr, as well as replace the text of her stolen works with links to our respective stories, in order to notify any readers who enjoyed these works. Unfortunately, she didn’t respond. Now that she has taken everything down, that’s no longer possible.
It would mean the world to Ellie and I if people would help spread the word about what happened. Last year, between the two of us, we wrote 626,000 words. We poured all our energy and love (and time!) into these stories, and to have someone copy them word for word, lie to people who were kind enough to comment or send asks as if they had thought up the ideas on their own, and interact with other people in the 1D fandom based off of love for OUR writing, is devastating to us both. This was going on for at least 2.5 months.
They also took my incubus story Dreamless and reposted it as Lilin. This fic was posted as a part of a collab for my close friend’s artwork.reallycorking drew this (VERY NSFW) art as part of a 30 day challenge, and the two of us worked together for a full month on Dreamless. Here is my fic masterpost for last year, and a link to my AO3.
I wanted to share links to the rest of our work because we don’t know how many stories she stole (it seemed like there were around 10 in total). We didn’t even have time to make a note of everything before she removed her accounts. So we don’t know what people read and might want to re-find (if there’s any interest cross-fandom).
Again, the One Direction fandom has been so incredibly supportive (Gina, Ange, phd-mama, Emmi, Lisa and everyone who was so helpful and understanding). Ellie and I started off the morning crushed, and now I have comments in my inbox on the fics that were stolen, and asks on Tumblr showing support, and it’s nearly brought me to tears. Thank you all so much. If anyone who sees this would be kind enough to get the word out there in any way (reblogs, just telling your friends who’ve read these stories, anything!!), we’d be incredibly grateful.
THANK YOU, to everyone who takes the time to read this.

never have i watched a more beautifully crafted show, with amazing plot and individual characters who are impossible not to love.
netflix are cancelling it and i could not bear to not have this show in my life (esp after the season 2 cliffhanger)
please please please please if you have netflix watch it (idc if u just put it on mute, just put it on please)
it has such a diverse cast (ethnically, nationally, sexually) and it was created by the wachowskis (two trans women) who love this show so so much.. i haven’t seen such good representation anywhere (½ of the main 8 are poc, 1 is a trans women (and the actress is acc trans herself!!) 2 are bi/gay and the show shows 2 really healthy lgbt relationships!!!)
the plot is????? amazing?? it is so original and they develop it so well But also the characters drive it… all of them are original and individual and you know them as well as you know your friends
also the editing is 10/10 and the locations are 10/10 and you have to watch it to understand…. the editing is Amazing
please, save an amazing show from being cancelled and share this and watch it!
Okay so I feel like I need to talk about this because I noticed a really biphobic comment on my art. I’m keeping the person anonymous and the comment brief out of respect but it was something like “Lance don’t bother with girls, just accept you’re gay.”
This really hit a nerve.. so I have to address this, I’m sorry… I want to clarify that I don’t tolerate biphobia. Lance’s attraction to women is STILL just as valid as his attraction to men REGARDLESS of who he ends up with. The fortune teller saying that Lance won’t find “him” in any woman is meant to just be a hint and give him some kind of closure since she can’t give the identity away otherwise it might mess up things. I’ve heard so many times that “bisexuality isn’t real because in the end you pick a side anyways.” I mean.. yeah… you choose one person in the end… that’s how a monogamous marriage works. Just because Keith is who Lance ends up with (in the comic, I should say) doesn’t make his attraction to women somehow invalid. I’ve been seeing the fandom do this to Lance a lot lately, a character I love and relate to and I wanna say… he likes girls too. Let him like girls.
@tenseoyong posts a variety of things, including rants, salt sessions, and series of writings, i spend a generous amount of time on her blog, too! plus her cats are cute and she’s overall a really,, real person?? (i don’t know how else to say it loll)
@fishtaeils does a lot of interesting ships! like idol life, sibling, moodboard ships, etc.
