poor edit but you know the feels

One More Little Tragedy of Darkiplier and Warfstache

If you haven’t seen the original post, it’s here.

I thought of one more thing.

Something I said on this post was that Darkiplier’s shell cracks because it “can barely handle the physical agony of having two souls trapped inside of him”.

Someone pointed out to me, “Wait, don’t you mean three souls? What about us?”

And at first I was like ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

But now I’m thinking.

I’ve seen theories saying that, since Dark walks away from the mirror and we’re still in it, that he pushed our soul right back out, and that he had manipulated us for that chance to be alive again.

I don’t think he “manipulated” us for that, per se, but that mirror thing still bugged me… until now. (I think the gif might be from @markired again, but I’m not certain, sorry.)

Celine and Damien needed us to form Darkiplier, right?

What if… in those last moments the Colonel was speaking to us…

… we saw just how much Wilford needed them?

So we decided to let Dark take over, push us out even, so that Damien and Celine could follow the Colonel.

What if we sacrificed ourselves for this?

What if we literally saw how much poor, broken William needed his only support system, and decided that maybe… it’d be okay if we let go?

What if we let go in the name of love, and that’s why Dark walks away without us, because we see that Will needs Damien and Celine more than he needs us, and we're… okay with it?

This is some Shakespearean sh*t right here.

I know, it’s a stretch, but as a new-founded Wilford Warfstache protector, I find… a weird sense of comfort in this theory.

We might have made the greatest sacrifice we could, for Wilford, our poor, broken Colonel.

And I think that’s a beautiful tragedy.

– *tiny edit tim*

One thing that makes me think this might be true?

You know Mark Edward Fischbach would do it.

You were the first to ask me if I’m okay. It’s not even a big deal, but those words…strangely comforted me.

I hope Aaron Tveit will never have the idea of making a cover of “Leave” from Once, because I think that hearing him almost screaming “Let go of my hand” would brutally murder all of our poor enjoltaire feelings.  


Edit since many people have pointed it out: I know George Blagden made the cover, I was listening to his version when I thought about it. I just think that considering it from Enjolras’ point of view  would be even worse ╮(─▽─)╭

Fandom event etiquette

Suggestions for both organizers and participants for a smooth and fun experience

Events are some of the most fun things in fandom. They bring people together for a common project, foster a great sense of community, and produce lots of amazing content for the fandom. As long as they’re run responsibly. As people who are quite active in the fandom events scene for the Voltron fandom a few things have been brought to our attention recently and we’d like to address them. Sheer event volume, poor management, and disorganized events are starting to turn people off from signing up/participating, and it’s really upsetting to see these things that are supposed to be fun turning into sources of stress and anxiety instead

Please know that this isn’t about pointing fingers at any single event or individual, rather this is advice we’d like to share based on our experience as both event organizers and participants. We welcome comments and further discussion, but if you’d like to add to this post please don’t namedrop any people or events. Don’t turn this post into a call-out, that’s not what it’s about. Finally, this post is written specifically about the Voltron fandom, but I’m sure it could apply to pretty much any fandom, so anyone who finds it useful feel free to reblog!

Organizers

  • Check the state of the fandom before starting a new event. This is absolutely crucial. For the Voltron fandom, I maintain an entire set of calendars with the schedules of all ongoing and upcoming events, please take advantage of it. Your idea is probably super cool! But if there are already a couple dozen other projects going on it may be wise to hold off on it. If you’re worried about someone else coming along and stealing your idea, you can make a blog/post to signal your intent to run your event in the future, and wait a while for things to calm down a bit before actually running it. I’ve been getting many messages from people saying they feel burnt out or overwhelmed with the sheer number of events, and that’s not a situation anyone wants. [Edit (14/09): After hearing the thoughts of a Zine mod on this topic I now find this next statement unfair and in poor taste, as it lowkey implies (falsely) that Zine mods don’t know what they’re doing. I’ll leave my original comments in for posterity, but let it be known that really at this point my issue with Zines is more instances of lackluster management rather than Zine volume in itself. This is especially worrying for Zines, because actual money is involved. The market has been flooded with Zines over the summer, which results in fewer people buying them overall. Fandom people aren’t made of money, and it’s important to consider this when planning a Zine]     
  • Make sure you’re able to commit entirely to the project, both time-wise and mentally/physically. Fandom events are BIG JOBS, especially the ones that span several months like Big Bangs and Zines. But even smaller events like Weeks or Exchanges require a certain amount of work put into them. That’s months of advertising, of making posts, of answering questions, of sorting people out and keeping tabs on them, of troubleshooting. Look at your school/work situation not just in the near future but also several months down the line: will you have the time to dedicate to this. Look at why you’re doing this event: are you just doing it because you want in on the fun. Look at your mental/physical health situation: will you have the capacity to see this through. If you know that given your history there’s a possibility something might happen that will prevent you from keeping on top of the project (like a depressive episode or a hospitalization) make sure to account for that (for example bring on a team of mods who will be able to carry on without you should you need to step back for a while)       
    • Make sure your fellow mods are up to the task. Smaller events can be comfortably run by a single person, but bigger events like Zines and Big Bangs really should be run by at least 2 people, if not a team of 3-5*. This will ensure the workload is shared and there’s less chance of burning out before the project reaches completion. And they must all be people who are equally invested in the project. Having 1 very enthusiastic mod and 2 wishy-washy tag-along mods is a recipe for a project to fall apart     
    • If your friend is asking you to co-mod an event with them and you’re not sure you can/want to commit to it, say no! Don’t feel like you have to accept just because it’s your friend asking. It’s better to be upfront and honest than to start something you won’t be able to finish
  • The above goes DOUBLE if you plan to run more than 1 event at a time. I’m not here to say you can’t run more than 1 event at the same time, but if you plan to do that you better make EXTRA sure you have the time and resources to commit to all of them
  • Get advice from someone who has run this kind of event in the past, especially if it’s your first time as an organizer. Talking to someone who has gone through this already will likely prove invaluable for running a smooth event and dealing with problems that may arise. Look through the notes on this post if you need to find someone to contact     
  • Communication is key, be transparent! It is extremely important to stay in contact with your participants. This will both remind them that the event is ongoing (you’d be surprised how often people sign up for something then forget about it entirely) and show that you are responsible and on top of things. Also, don’t forget about your public page. With most events having dedicated Discord servers these days, it’s easy to forget about updating the event blog/Twitter page. Putting up a post every now and then to update the public on the event’s progress lets people know it’s not dead and keeps their interest up while your participants work behind the scenes
    • Stay on schedule, and if you can’t, let people know. Be clear and upfront about the event’s timeline and the different milestones, and if you can’t keep to the schedule say so. People will generally be very understanding. If you’re dealing with a Real Life situation, or if there are circumstances outside your control like printing/manufacturing delays on a Zine, tell your participants and your audience. This will avoid people getting disgruntled and frustrated and bitter because they feel left in the dark     
    • If for whatever reason you can no longer see the project through, tell people instead of just disappearing off the face of the Earth. It’s really upsetting from a participant’s perspective to be left with no news for weeks or months on end without a clue what happened to the event. Sometimes things come up or stuff happens, it’s understandable, but if that’s the case you need to let people know. It may be very upsetting to make that post, but trust me, people will appreciate the knowing     
  • Be VERY CAREFUL if you’re going to be handling money (as with Zines for example). Handling people’s money is a huge responsibility. If you’re going to be taking money you have to make sure you’re able to deliver on what you promised. The absolute worst time for a project to stall out is after preorders and before products are shipped out. If your project stalls at this stage and you don’t keep your buyers appraised of the situation you may get accused of scamming people or people may start demanding refunds, which is a mess no one wants to deal with     
  • Don’t air your dirty laundry publicly. We get it, sometimes running an event is frustrating. Participants drop out, or disappear and can’t be contacted, or butt heads with you or each other. Don’t complain about it anywhere public; know that stuff you say will reflect on you as an organizer as well as on your event. Vent to friends or on private accounts if you must, but you want to appear professional and in control in public. If you appear messy, your event will also appear messy, and it may make people think twice about staying in it or participating in stuff you do in the future 
    • Related: Try and keep your tone upbeat and positive and professional in your promo posts and answers to questions, even if you’re answering the same question for the umpteenth time. Giving off a frustrated or negative vibe may turn people off your event    
  •  If you’re a minor who wants to run an event make sure it’s appropriate for your age. Honestly, kudos to you if you’re 15-17 and running (or helping to run) an event, it’s great that you’re so involved! But for the love of all things good don’t get involved in an event where NSFW content is likely to appear. No amount of “I’m mature enough” or “I act older” constitutes a valid excuse, and you’re putting your (adult) participants in a very dangerous situation if you do that. ESPECIALLY if they don’t know you’re underage

*This isn’t to say you can’t run a bigger event if you’re alone, because people can and have done it and quite successfully at that. But in that case you must be absolutely all in


Participants

  • When you sign up for something, take the commitment seriously. Only sign up for things you know you’ll have the time/energy to deliver on, and do your best to do it
    • Stay on task. Keep to the schedule on your own, don’t make the organizers run after you
    • If you need an extension, ask for it, and don’t wait for the last minute. Sometimes you just need those few extra days or that week to complete your piece. Very often organizers will be understanding if you approach them asking for an extension, but don’t wait till the deadline to do so. Ask for the extension the moment you realize you’ll need extra time. Also ask even if you’re not 100% sure you’ll need it. Better to get the extension but still hand your stuff in on time than to show up the day of the deadline with an incomplete work and asking for more time. In the event that the organizers can’t give you an extension, either sort yourself out to have your stuff done on time or drop out of the event
    • If you need to drop out, do it sooner rather than later. Sometimes things come up, or your muse goes on vacation, or something else happens that’ll make you unable to participate. That’s ok! It happens to everyone. But in that case, tell the organizers ASAP so they can readjust their plans around you. Don’t just disappear off the face of the Earth without letting them know what your status is
  • Pace yourself. I know it’s tempting to sign up for everything. But the more you’re in the more strain you put on yourself, and the more likely you are to cause a domino effect if something goes wrong
  • Don’t air your dirty laundry publicly. If you have an issue with another participant or the organizer(s), or the way the event is being managed, or whatever else, take it up privately first. If it can’t be resolved, maybe just quietly drop out of the event and go on your way 
The Inevitability of Our Story

Request: I was listening to Can’t Help Falling In Love by Elvis himself and I couldn’t help but think about Newt while listening to it idk its such a Newt song and then i thought of you and well, it sounds like a possible fic idea ;) ;) I know you have so many requests but i just wanted to put this out there, also to tell you that these kinds of songs remind me of Newt and then you and your amazing stories. Anyway, have a good day!

                                                  I. For


Newt’s quill scratches against the parchment and he mumbles words under his breath, reading over his manuscript. Thunder outside rumbles, raindrops thump against the glass panes, and you plod over to Newt, dropping into the open spot next to him. He hardly notices as your forearm brushes his lightly, or the way you hum softly before tapping the back of his hand.

“Newt?”

“Yes?” He mumbles, eyes still scanning over his messy handwriting.

“Can I ask you something?”

“Yes?” The word is distracted, his attention only half on you. This manuscript is important. He’s almost finished editing his chapter on bowtruckles and other leafy beasts; best friend or not, he doesn’t want to pause his work until he gets through the last page of it.

“Why do mooncalves only emerge during full moons?”

He doesn’t look up from the parchment. “They have an affinity for it.”

“But why?” You question, resting your chin in one hand as you play with the leaf of a potted plant sitting on the table.

Newt glances up at you, wary. “You really want to know?”

You nod, lips puckered in confusion as the leaf turns a shade of blue.

His heart twists, chest warming as he sets down his quill, and Newt shifts, uncomfortable with the sudden change of his heart’s rhythm. “It’s only a theory right now.”

You meet his eyes and smile. “That’s all right. I’d still like to hear what you think.”

Newt tries to ignore the feeling in his chest. “Could it wait a couple of minutes? I’ve almost finished here.”

“I’ll wait.” You say it with another smile, reaching out to squeeze his arm gently.

Though he was unaware of it, Newt has been on the precipice of falling for quite some time. Only a lack of free time had prevented him from considering this, considering asking you on a date. It would really only take a gesture, a small nudge, to knock him off that cliff, to convince him to ask you out.

Your soft squeeze of his arm is that nudge.

He lifts his quill again, throat dry, fully prepared to edit more, but Newt can’t tear his eyes away from the gentle slope of your nose or the way you narrow your eyes at the color-changing leaf.

Three pages of the chapter still need to be edited, but Newt flips the notebook shut, taking a deep breath, praying the strange feeling will disappear after a good night’s rest. “The moon’s a signal to them.”

How do you think about your romantic life, and how do you think about it within the context of your songwriting?
I feel like in this record there’s—with the songs that are “love songs,” or about relationships, I feel like I come off almost more annoyed about the way things are going rather than like, “Oh, poor me.” There’s like a moving that I get from my own stuff, because sometimes my own stuff is a little bit revealing to me, you know, about myself.

Superhero AUs #10

Anti-hero and Anti-villain Edition

From my understanding, an anti-hero is a protagonist with poor morals e.g. writing from a villain’s POV, and an anti-villain is a law-abiding citizen with decent morals that is opposing the protagonist. I’ve scattered examples of both through these (I hope) but feel free to correct me if I’m wrong!

- ‘Some might think of me as an antihero, a true protector of the masses. A silent but deadly watchman’ AU

- ‘And the rest of us know exactly what you are: a total dick’ AU

- ‘Wait, are you telling me that the League are paying you to save lives?’ AU

- ‘Yeah, pretty much. I also accept tips, and since I just saved your life…I take wire transfers’ AU

- 'The media may frame me as a villain, but I’m the only hero my people have’ AU

- 'Okay, I get that you’re protecting the people you love, and I get that a lot of people want to hurt them, but could you please stop blowing up public monuments because it’s really not helping your case’ AU

- 'If I don’t steal this virus, a lot of people are going to die so could you stop trying to arrest me long enough for me to get it out of here I’d be really bloody grateful’ AU

- 'The law is there for a reason, and due process is what saves people’s lives, so no, I will not let you steal this’ AU

- 'I’m going to take down the corrupt, dangerous league of heroes with six rubber bands and a paper clip if it kills me’ AU

- 'I just got inducted into the hero’s league and assigned to take you out, but despite thwarting you at every turn I’m starting to think you’re right about the heroes’ AU

- ‘I steal valuable items and sell them on the black market, then donate the proceeds to children’s hospitals in memory of my childhood best friend. You’re a cop and I think you’ve figured out my secret…well there goes all my street cred’ AU
- ‘Aw man, now I don’t want to arrest you’ AU

- ‘If you kill a killer, there’s still the same amount of killers in the world’ AU
- ‘Not if I kill a couple dozen killers, there won’t be’ AU

- ‘I’m a hero I swear, but by god I have a lot of trespassing and property damage charges against me, and now this DI won’t stop trying to arrest me’
- ‘I don’t care if the rest of the force thinks your illegal behaviour is somehow justified, I will uphold the law and I will get you to a courtroom if it’s the last thing I do’ AU

- ‘…you’re helping to save the world? You? The ultimate supervillain?’ AU
- ‘Look. I don’t want to be here. I especially don’t want to be helping the heroes. But goddammit, this is my planet too, and if I have to save everyone else’s ass to save my own, then so be it’ AU

- ‘I used to be a hero. Then you killed my team’ AU
- ‘Oh shit’ AU

Excuse me Wil, i see you wrote that Marvin is definitely in your top five robots. However further into the post you listed your top five robots and poor Marvin wasn't in the list.

Next Door Neighbor (Jack Maynard)

Originally posted by conorshickey

Requested: No 

I can’t believe it, my best friend just bailed on me for her boyfriend. I even got us Chinese take out. Some friend she is!

I make my way to the elevator, heading to my flat. On the way there I wait wondering what I’m going to do with all this food. Now don’t get me wrong I love food but this is different, I ordered so much since tonight was a girls night.

I step out of the elevator and find my neighbor, Jack in the process of unlocking his door. He looks at me and smirks.

“Oh what a legend! You shouldn’t have!” He says looking at the takeout. In return I give him a huge grin. 

“You know…” I look down at the takeout. “You could come and join me, my friend bailed for her boyfriend.” I finish with a shrug.

“You know what I’ll take you up on that offer, but first let me go take a quick shower.” He points to his sweaty gym clothes. I give him a nod and head to my flat. Once inside I quickly change from my sweats to a pair of skinny jeans. I go out into the living room and clean up the clutter. What, I don’t what him to think I’m a slob. Jack is a very handsome man and I’d be lying if I said he wasn’t attractive.

When I was moving in so was Jack. We helped each other move into our new flats which then created a small friendship, although I wish it were more but we all can’t have what we want. A knock interrupts my small daydream.

“Come in. It’s unlocked!” I yell. I then walk into the kitchen and prepare our plates. The front door closes and Jack walks into the kitchen. He’s wearing a pair of black jeans and a black t-shirt, not bad. I quickly look up not wanting him to notice me staring, but I think he caught me with that big smirk of his. 

“Water?” I ask holding two glasses.

“Yes, that sounds marvelous.” He says sitting down on the bar stool. I poor us a both our waters and hand him his glass. We then make our way into the living room.

“Oh how’d you know?” He says looking at his plate. 

“What?” I ask confused.

“This is exactly what I get when I order Chinese.” He points at his food.

“Oh this is what I always get. I guess great minds think alike.” I shrug.

“In deed they do.” He cheers with his glass of water.

“So how’s youtube?” I casually ask.

“Meh. It’s alright, just got back from Amsterdam. Got a lot of editing do to.” He sighs.

“Yeah, I feel ya. I’m going to be leaving for Brighton in two weeks, so that’ll be fun.” I say half sarcastically, not looking forward to the packing.

“Oh. What for?” He takes a bite of his rice.

“Well I do photography and this couple asked me to come down and take photographs during their wedding.” I say excitedly. I’ve always enjoyed taking pictures. 

“Wow. I didn’t know you did photography.” He says surprised.

“Yeah, I actually met up with the Dolan twins, last year to take some pictures of them when I went to the states.” I then eat my last crab rangoon.

“Sick!” He replies. After a minute of silence I’ll tell you now I was not ready for what Jack was about to say.

“So are you doing anything this weekend?” I look up to see him looking a bit nervous. Hmm.

“No, why?” I furrow my eyebrows.

“Well I was thinking, if you want of course, you and I could go out to this one new restaurant on Saturday?” He clears his throat. 

Wait…What!

“As in a date?” I ask, surprised at how calm I was.

He hesitated for a moment.

“Yes.” He says hopefully.

“I’d love to.” I say looking down.

“Really!?” I look up.

“Yes really.” I say with a laugh.

“I guess it’s a date then.” He smirks.

“It’s a date!” I smirk back.

I guess we can have what we want.

Everyone, today is an important day~ It’s one of my best friend’s birthday! (She’s also a talented fic writer so follow her!)

Happy Birthday Mia!  @technicallyflamey  ♥

I colored little icons for you to use of your favorite cutie Bakugou aka “King Explosion Murder” !! I hope you like them and get some use out of them lol  (◕‿◕✿)

You are such a wonderful friend I honestly don’t know what I would do without you! You deserve so much hun, I wish you the best! I’m not very good at writing down my feelings (as you can tell), but just know I love and appreciate you so much. I really treasure our friendship.

I have to admit, the time I spent on type-setting is even longer than the time I did on drawing X’D

Probably many of you expect Kougyoku to be jealous or heart-broken right? Too bad :P. I prefer her being oblivious to Aladdin’s feeling. I think she would probably react like this in canon, knowing she can have a new friend XD! But lonely too since she’s the only one without true love.

And poor Aladdin, he’s just got “potential future boyfriend of potential-future friend”-zoned. Life can’t be worse for the little Magi when Kougyoku has already mastered the art of rejection.

As always, I hope you enjoy my little doujinshi and please do not repost :3

loooollllll does anyone realize how much money we’re going to spend this year? give or take, we’ve got:

  • harry’s album: between $10-$70, depending on packages
  • harry’s merch: probably between $20-$60
  • harry’s tour: (roughly) $40 - $115
  • niall’s album: $15+ dollars, depending on packages
  • niall’s merch: again, probably between $20-$40ish
  • niall’s tour: $30/$40+
  • liam’s album: tba
  • liam’s merch: tba 
  • liam’s tour: tba
  • louis’s album: tba
  • louis’s merch: tba
  • louis’s tourdates: tba

EDIT: it’s come to my attention i didn’t include travel prices. perhaps i was trying to be merciful on us all, but. alas. so depending on method of transportation that could be anywhere from $30 (gas prices, if you live in an economically sound area) - $2/400+ (for plane/train tickets)

i mean… the deluxe edition of MITAM alone was $32 but i could buy like 48 copies of MITAM with the amount of money i am going to willingly give to 1D is going to steal from me so??? i don’t know what the point of this post is except that it was cheaper being a 1D stan than it is to be a solo!direction stan and we could easily spend $500-$1000+ on these losers*, so if 1D love me they will return asap thank you 

*i mean that in the most loving way possibly but seriously i’m poor what are you doing

This scene still breaks my heart.

Matteo: Luna, I want to know the truth. I want you to look me into the eyes and say what you feel for me.

Luna: Matteo, listen… I think that nothing can happen between us.

Matteo: Do you really think that ?

Luna: Matteo… Listen. It’s better that we stay friends like we are now.

Matteo: No.
