posting because i lost it for a while

Basically, The Story of Warframe

Giant sentient space biorobot mom adopts hundreds of traumatised kids with strange powers, convinces them to slaughter their slave masters and go to bed for a few hundred years.

Cut to present day where we’ve been booted out of bed by the potato people empire and shot at by fridge-wearing bankers, space uncle Teshin helps save us from being body snatched by the elderly while Space zombie virus runs out of control because Salad V fucked up,

space mom is busy keeping us away from Grandpa “destroyer of worlds” Hunhow, who hates kids and our edgy amnesiac? brother keeps trying to kill us.

All while absentee Void Dad is now trying to reconnect with “it’s” estranged kids and make up for lost time and that unpaid child support.

Welcome to warframe

My TS6 theories masterpost

OKAY so as you guys probably already know I love making theories lmaooo and I have more than one so I’m going to keep updating this post with new information/new theories until TS6 is revealed!! 

10/13/17

So this is my original theory that TS6 will drop on Friday October 13th, 2017, because it is the last Friday the 13th this year and Taylor is hella extra™

ECLIPSE THEORY

  • Taylor blacked out all of her social media accounts as well as her website, store, youtube, and myspace… during an eclipse, everything blacks out for a period of time 
  • There’s going to be a total solar eclipse across the entire continental united states in a few days for the first time in 99 years
  • A total solar eclipse is usually a once in a lifetime thing just like this album
  • An eclipse often symbolizes new beginnings and a cleanse, which could make a lot of sense for this album after everything Taylor has been through in the past 3 years
  • Eclipses are extremely emotional/moving events, and Taylor has always been known to write about things that move people
  • Taylor’s tumblr fades from pink to black, which again is in a sense what happens during a solar eclipse: the light fades away to black
  • Taylor has posted several pictures while wearing stars on her outfits, as well as her star flash tattoo. Also, the newest TSNow promo from Taylor Nation looks kinda spacey.
  • Taylor sent a CD of 1989 to space and wrote “Going to space!” on it… that could have potentially been a clue!
  • Kesha said she was collaborating with another artist and used 13 emojis, so we assumed that it’s Taylor. However, the emojis weren’t just random, they were stars and meteors (and unicorns)!!
  • Before and after the totality period of a total eclipse, shadow snake patterns form on the ground. Taylor’s first post since the blackout was a gif of either a rattlesnake or potentially a dragon (see bulletpoint below).
  • If the gif was a dragon, it also supports this theory because there is a Chinese myth that states that a solar eclipse is a dragon eating the sun.

MASQUERADE THEORY

  • Social media is just one big masquerade when you think about it, full of people essentially wearing masks and pretending to be people they aren’t, as well as using it for anonymity 
  • In that sense social media is also very fake in the sense that nothing about it is tangible and oftentimes it’s superficial, just like masquerades
  • Taylor could have blacked out her social media and deleted everything to signify that she’s done participating in the social media masquerade
  • She could have been giving us a hint by participating in the IDWLF music video, where there were fancy masquerade masks present 

TIME THEORY

  • TS6 could be about time, or in a sense the lack of time… maybe the 13th hour? Because it only exists on the 24-hour clock, which isn’t widely used in the united states, so in a sense the 13th hour wouldn’t exist
  • On one of her posts on instagram the caption was “Til. The. End. Of. Time.” so maybe TS6 is about what happens when time ends, or when time stops… such as moments that make time seem to stop or slow down or speed up, or even getting lost in the moment
  • Taylor blackout out all of her social media is in a sense erasing her social media history, which could relate to the absence of time
  • It could also touch upon how time isn’t actually a real tangible thing, and is simply something that we use to explain how we go through life
  • Potential titles could be: epoch, chrono
  • A song was temporarily released on youtube titled “Timeless” (some people think Taylor released it some people think somebody was impersonating her); there’s also a website called timeless.com that says coming soon. The concept of “timeless” ties in perfectly with this theory in the sense of lost time, nonexistent time, or erasing time.
  • Scott Borchetta posted pictures about time on his social medias.

NOIR THEORY

  • So I came up with this quite a while ago, and it was because of the black and white pictures that Taylor had been posting.
  • It could also explain the social media blackout, since noir means black
  • The whole noir genre could make for a very conceptually interesting album/era

BLACKOUT THEORY

  • So this theory isn’t that well developed, but it’s simply because Taylor blacked out all of her social medias/websites
  • It could also have an interesting meaning as to how she could potentially approach social media in the future if this proves true

When you’ve had a lot of exposure to the SJ side of Tumblr, you’ll start to pick up common abusive tactics they use to instill control over people who are unsure of what side they want to be on.

The most common type I’ve seen was projection. It’s when someone wants to remove all accountability from the actions resulting from bad traits they hold by attributing those bad traits onto you. And I’ve seen it in this form the most: Somebody could go into hysterics about the supposed ‘self-hate’ you have because of certain political views you hold (that don’t apparently “line up” with your minority status), but a quick scroll down through their blog would either reveal those typical self-depreciating posts, how much they hate/want to kill themselves, or how nobody else likes them.

They tell you not to talk to certain people they perceive to be bigoted based on their very broad definition of one. If that doesn’t work, they’ll resort to toying with your emotions. I’ve talked about this before, but they’ll insist that nobody else (outside of the minority group they’re apart of) cares about them. Basically it usually goes like: “If you associate with them, they’ll drop you in a heartbeat when you don’t become useful to them anymore, but since we’re the only people who supposedly care about you, you’re better off staying with us no matter how much abuse we throw at you.” They feel threatened when anyone, especially other minorities who are expected to have camaraderie with them at all costs, point out faults within their mindset so they resort to this particular tactic.

There’s also the “Preemptive Defense” strategy which a lot of narcissists love to use. I didn’t know there was an exact word for this, but I’ve seen this one play out way too often on here. It’s when someone says you should trust them right off the bat because they’re a “nice person”. But on here it comes in the form of trusting someone - especially believing whatever they say without question - because they’re a minority of some sorts. Because they’re a minority and therefore inevitably ‘oppressed’, everything they say, they say with good intentions (or everything they say is right) even if it comes in the form of overtly abusive language.

And you can’t really do shit about it cause, “You gotta listen to them or else you’re speaking over them and denying their right to a voice!”

Another attribute that narcissists share (and lots of people on here) are subjecting people to “smear campaigns”. They control how others see you by making themselves out to be the good person while you’re the toxic one. A smear campaign is a preemptive strike to sabotage your reputation and slander your name so that you won’t have a support network to fall back on lest you decide to detach and cut ties with this toxic person. They may even stalk and harass you or the people you know as a way to supposedly “expose” the truth about you; this exposure acts as a way to hide their own abusive behavior while projecting it onto you. I think I’ve lost count of the amount of times I’ve seen this happen here.

They deliberately misrepresent your thoughts and put words in your mouth too. They’ll try their damn hardest to rephrase whatever you say to make your opinions sound like garbage. This gives them a sense of power as everybody comes running to their side and away from yours because they purposely misinterpreted the core argument you made in your post. One of their favorite approaches is finding something slightly off with your wording and using that to twist the point you made while moving the goalposts at the same time. I made a post that said ‘Radfems will call a transwoman a man because they raped somebody as if men are the only ones capable of rape’ and I got swarms of replies talking about how I didn’t care about the rape victim affected (which they ironically proceeded to deny his identity by referring to him as a ‘’female’’ because he was a transman) because I happened to bring up a different issue at that time. Either that or I was a rape apologist.

Once they lose that sense of control – because you disagree with their thought process – they’ll either try to strip of you of your identity or use fear-tactics (i.e: nobody cares for you except for us) as a consequence of not conforming to their political views. “If someone’s reaction to you setting boundaries or having a differing opinion from your own is to threaten you into submission, whether it’s a thinly veiled threat or an overt admission of what they plan to do, this is a red flag of someone who has a high degree of entitlement and has no plans of compromising.”

Then comes the oversimplifications and generalizations of complicated matters. They’re left-wing versions of reactionaries, they don’t bother to look at things from different perspectives; they instead apply their own bias where they see fit. They have no concept of nuance and dismiss people who point this out.

9/24/2017

Uh, okay so!

If you visit the Space Hop site right now, you won’t find anything. That’s ‘cause I woke up this morning to a delightful notification that it had been attacked by malware. After a long conversation with my hosting company they determined that I either need to remove the malware myself, which I have no experience doing, or pay for a malware removal service.

They have someone calling me in the morning when the malware scan finishes to estimate a quote for the removal service. But even so, I’m already deep in debt as of this posting for other bills and I don’t think I could afford it. 

It’s an estimated $50 to $150, and I’ll update this post when that quote is clear.

I have no earthly idea why someone would attack my site specifically, especially because of the low hiatus traffic. I haven’t updated Space Hop in a while due to my senior thesis starting, but the comic isn’t dead in the slightest. It’s still a really big dream of mine to keep it going when I can and I’m worried about the site and hours and hours of coding it to be what it is being lost forever if I can’t afford to pay to remove the malware. There is no way I could find the time to rebuild the site from scratch in the near future, so if it goes down now, it goes down for a long time.

So basically, I’m asking that if you enjoy the comic and you’d like to help keep it from disappearing, I would appreciate anything you can spare. This comic means the world to me and the idea of losing it terrifies me. For those who pledge monthly to the small patreon, if you could afford to send your pledge a little early this month, it’d be a massive help. 

My paypal is deedledanger@gmail.com .

Please spread this post around if you can, even that is a giant help. Thank you so much.

tatertottyss  asked:

yo i heard you got that good bmc headcanons. Can ya share your michael and boyf_riends hcs please ty friend

- he’ll sit and play with it while him and jeremy cuddle and watch movies
- he’s lost tons of them, so one day jeremy goes to the store and gets a shit ton of them bc they’re cheap af and he gives them to michael

- gets the side of his nose pierced (not a septum, but maybe he’d get that later?) and gets his tongue pierced when jeremy walks out bc he can’t handle the needles
- holy shit michael with a tongue piercing
- decides not to mention it until he’s laughing hard at something j says a few days later and jeremy is just like “YOU GOT YOUR TONGUE PIERCED?!”
- j secretly wonders what it’s like to kiss someone with a tongue piercing
- michael doesn’t wait for it to heal completely before he gets a slushie and it STINGS LIKE A MOFO
- talks jeremy into going back and getting his ears pierced, oh man that boy with small black studs in his ear it drives michael crazy
- jeremy picks up random patches he sees sometimes for michael to put on his jacket
- michael starts making jeremy a hoodie like his!! he gets a bunch of patches (including the bi pride flag arm patch to match his rainbow one) and gives it to him once it has a good amount of them!!

I love how almost everyone has a really deep and tragic back story to explain why they’re on DS9

Benjamin Sisko: My wife was killed in the battle Wolf 395. I had to raise our son, Jake, on my own. I questioned whether or not I wanted to leave Starfleet, but I still accepted the position on DS9. 

Kira Nerys: I grew up in Bajor during the Cardassian Occupation. I learned to fire a rifle when I was 13. During the occupation, I lost both my brothers, my father and my mother. I accepted the posting on DS9 because I wanted to help my people rebuild Bajor but I am still traumatised by the war.

Odo: I worked as a security officer on DS9 while it was originally under Cardassian rule. Before that, I was discovered by a Bajoran doctor and subjected to inhuman scientific experiments. I’m a complete outsider and have no idea where I’m from. The only purpose I believe I have, is providing security on the station.

Julian: I was a disappointment to my parents so they genetically altered me, which made me question my own self-worth. I took a position on DS9 in order to prove myself but I live in fear that people will discover my secret.

Garak: I used to hold a position in the Cardassian military. After making a fatal mistake, I was exiled and forced to live on DS9 with Bajorans who hate my species. 

and then you have Quark…

Quark: I had sex with my boss’s sister.

Yo, but imagine Our!Ciel and Real!Ciel doing things like proper British noblemen and catching up over tea.

Our!Ciel: Who, me? Well, I cross-dressed, saw aunt Red get violently murdered, ate some curry, shared a bed with this girl, went through a couple of subtext-laden asthma attacks, set fire to this dude’s mansion, met my favourite writer and got handcuffed to him while I was being accused of murder, slapped my seemingly dead butler a couple of times, got attacked by his clandestine cats, took a cruise, put on a blond wig, saw Lizzie slay some zombies, got stranded in the middle of the ocean, had this moment with my butler where we both stared at the sun for a while, wore bunny ears, participated in an oddly dramatic egg hunt, went to school, became someone’s fag, used almost-naked women and laxatives to win a cricket game, felt the need to enter my-butler’s-who-was-then-acting-as-as teacher office in a very sexually suggestive manner, fell into a river, participated in a tea party which wasn’t as anticlimactic as you’d expect a tea party to be, really, took a trip to Germany, met a witch, ended in a bed with her too, got poisoned, entered a giant cauldron with my butler while unclothed, had a PTSD-induced identity crisis, made super lame jokes about mass murder, took the witch-who-wasn’t-really-a-witch home with me, almost lost my life because Lizzie misunderstood what I’d meant when I told her I had business in Germany, started a boy band, got stripped of my shirt while in a carriage, did some other stuff that lead to the prince’s—did I mention there was a prince involved?— butler getting murdered, and now here we are. *calmly sips tea* What have you been up to all this time?

~Blog Appreciation~

Okay so I just got a message from someone saying some rude shit about my latest post, the mtmte Halloween category ask.

Naturally, that’s got me feeling pretty shitty because last night, I worked hard on that request. It was the first time in a while that I had my inspiration up and was able to write a lot. I felt good! Great even about my work!

And then someone messages me that my post was too long and I should consider writing less so ‘people will actually be interested’.

Look, lately there’s been a lot of hate on tf blogs. I mean, everywhere on Tumblr. But it’s sad because I know a lot of the tf blogs are run by wonderful people and it’s disheartening when we receive hate for just doing our best!

Like I know @cybertronianrecords recently had to deal with hate and I’m upset because they’re an amazing writer? And now I’ve received hate two days in a row? And I’m sure many others have been experiencing this.

So I just want to say to all the writers out there who might be going through the same thing, just know you are amazing, you work hard, and your work is ALWAYS appreciated.

I’m not going to let nasty people get me down or make me feel bad about my writing and y'all shouldn’t either.

I also got an ask recently about recommending some good tf blogs! Now I’m pretty sure I’ve done this before but that’s okay. I love supporting other blogs and I know it will boost everyone’s mood.

Peter Parker taking care of you while you're on your period

Hey guys. So it’s been a while since I’ve posted. 

I’m in a double degree of nursing and business (and I really hate business) and trying to drop the business part has been taking up some time and also I had no fucking wifi for a month now because let’s just add that into my life (wifi is back though) Also starting a new semester at uni and bio seems really full on so I may post less because I really need to pass bio and have been throwing myself into studying for it for the past few weeks so I’m not lost in class (it was just our first week) 

 So busy busy for me But other than that, I love Peter Parker and Tom Holland but don’t see as much written about him so I’m gonna try change that by contributing some work. I hope you all enjoy 

 Peter Parker taking care of you on your period would include 

  •  him coming to your room 
  •  "Hey baby, are you feeling okay?“ 
  •  "No. It is a bad, bad week for me" 
  • "I know. I’ve got it marked on my calendar" 
  •  * Him getting in bed with you and your electric blanket AND heat pad/pack 
  • Cuddles 
  •  Drawing patterns softly on your back and tummy, knowing it distracts you from any discomfort 
  •  Pulling out chocolate for you from his bag pack 
  • Letting you move about however you want and not complaining once even if it makes him uncomfortable  
  • Him calling Aunt May when he thinks you’re asleep "May, what else do I do? Can she lose too much blood? Do I get her stronger pain killers? Will she cry if I show her the teddy bear I bought her”. Something which made you smile immediately 
  • Butterfly kisses all over your face 
  •  After he does it a few times and you’re not so uncomfortable around him on your period he notices the way you heatedly stare at him 
  • “Babe, you know how you said periods are all hormones and more hormones? Does that mean you get, uh, y'know, horny?" 
  •  "Well I don’t stare you like you’re James Dean because I’m not horny" 
  •  Him understanding the limits to fun time on your period but making it all about you. Neck kisses. Gentle worshipping of your chest. Grinding when you really need it. 
  •  "Cmon, I ran you a bath" 
  •  Babying you unlike anything you’ve ever seen. Including from your parents.
  • Telling you stories about the avengers and his crime fighting adventures 
  •  Playing with your hair, even when you tell him you hate it when anyone plays with your hair, although you secretly make an excepting for him 
  •  "I know it hurts. Come on, use my hands, squeeze em. There you go.” He soothes while rubbing your back 
  •  Him not being grossed out when the nausea hits. Because of course you get cramps, bloating AND nausea 
  •  "I’m not leaving. It’s not gross, it’s normal" 
  •  Him making you drink extra water and bringing your fruits because you love fruits 
  • “I don’t care, I don’t believe in blowjob week" 
  •  Half sitting with you in between his legs, sleeping while he looks at you and wonders how he was lucky enough to have stumbled into your life

Feel free to edit this message out when you’re editing this post for yourself.

A piece of Spring magic in Autumn for y'all
I was asked by Yuri to share this lot but unfortunately I don’t have it any longer. I lost it when my game (and god damned Windows) crashed because of updated video drivers a while ago. Well , good news is that I have post effect mod working with my Radeon/Intel dual cards now :)
But back to lot. I challenged myself to recreate it and while doing that I decided not to stop with garden and build a home there so your sims can have a place to live ;)
Special thanks to all CC creators whose work I used. Without you there would be nothing to share.
Download, enjoy and happy simming!

Today’s the day. Today’s the day that Koushi is finally going to ask Daichi out. But why is he so nervous?

Maybe Memories (4.9k) (G) (hobbit_hedgehog)

DaiSuga Week Day Four: Past or Future

Daichi was hiding something, Koushi knew that much. He had been looking at Koushi funny all morning. For Daichi to be acting like this was highly suspect, but Koushi had a fairly good idea of what was going on. Daichi was keeping secrets, and Koushi didn’t care for that shit at all.

Root of the Root (33k) (T) (SedentaryZebra) (Tw: Institutionalized Homophobia)

When an extremely famous pop star comes out as gay the day before Suga’s third year of high school begins, he thinks the only impact on his life will be the extra chocolates he will need to buy to console his mother.

He’s wrong.

The real beauty (5.4k) (M) (Ellessey) @ellessey-writes

“You’re going to love this house, Daichi,” Koushi says. He tips his chin up, so the kisses Daichi has begun to press to the crook of his neck can keep traveling upwards. “You’re going to…wonder how you ever doubted me.”

“I never doubt you,” Daichi says.

“You think our house is ugly.”

Daichi’s soft exhalation just under Koushi’s ear sends a perfect shiver down his spine. “It is ugly,” he says. “But I already love it.”

Their first house needs a lot of work, but Koushi loves every moment of turning it into a home with Daichi.

Exception to the rule (4.5k) (T) (Mysecretfanmoments)

In which Sugawara Koushi just so happens to belong to the .001% of guys Daichi might conceivably fall for, and it takes a confused third party for Daichi to realize it.

boys (5k) (G) (buu)

Before, if Suga had been asked to pick a type, he would have hummed and thought it over, maybe said something vague like “nice eyes” or “nice legs” or “a good personality”. Now, he can only think “Daichi”.

Perfectionism (2.9k) (T) (Mysecretfanmoments)

“I just wish it was something you could practice before you have to… perform.” He narrows his eyes, imagining it. “Like a CPR class.”

Suga raises an eyebrow. “You want to practice it. Beforehand.”

“Yeah. Are you offering?”

((Daichi doesn’t like to be bad at things–kissing included–and Suga is willing to help him practice.))

we are teenage hearts (3.7k) (G) (Pyrahus)

Daichi one day realizes that he does indeed see Suga as more than a friend -after the entire team figured it out ages ago- and contemplates how to ask his vice-captain out, while having to deal with his unruly kouhai and Nekoma.

you’re good where you are (3.5k) (M) (Mysecretfanmoments)

Daichi’s legs look good in shorts.

It’s an unnecessary statement, like “trees are plants” or “the earth orbits the sun”, but it keeps on surprising Koushi just how good they look in shorts; he thanks his lucky stars every day for whatever it was that led Daichi to pick up volleyball when he was a kid.

((a day in the life of Sugawara Koushi))

i do (cherish you) (3k) (T) (gabstar)

The first time Daichi suggests it, it’s a joke.

“Sugawara Koushi,” he says solemnly. He’s bent on one knee, the floor is still sticky with sweat post-practice. He offers up the lost ring, found while mopping off gym floors. “Will you marry me?”

((Five times Daichi asks Suga to marry him, plus once where he finally, finally says yes.))

Flybys and Landings (2.9k) (T) (sterlinglee)

When Daichi’s behavior takes a turn for the strange, Suga attempts damage control because that’s what Suga does. He doesn’t know the full story, but in his defense, “your captain and best friend has decided he like-likes you” isn’t the first conclusion most people come to. There’s confusion, a little heartache, and certain things that fail to be said until it’s nearly too late. But they make it to the same destination in the end.

love is a battlefield (and there are always casualties in war) (3.9k) (T) (skittidyne)

Tanaka and Noya had crossed a line. It had involved copious amounts of Red Bull, water balloons, food dye, one of Ennoshita’s film plots, and bad ideas. Daichi, Asahi, and Yachi had been the unfortunate victims. He didn’t want to think about it. It was a miracle Yachi hadn’t run home, crying, and quit the club. (Daichi had felt like it. Asahi tearfully threatened Noya with it.)

“I need revenge,” Daichi announced on the way home from practice.

(( or: daichi and kiyoko fake-date to get back at tanaka and noya after a particularly bad prank; everyone can see the collateral damage except for them ))

you can only take what you can carry (4.2k) (T) (skittidyne)

Suga pulled Noya down from the chair. Daichi finally decided enough was enough. He knew he was just doing it to draw him in, and damn it, it worked (just like it always worked against him), because there was no way he was letting Suga get into one of Kuroo and Bokuto’s competitions.

Suga had their libero thrown over one shoulder by the time Daichi reached them. “Daichi-san! Look!” Noya chirped, waving the arm that wasn’t wrapped around the vice-captain.

Suga put up his free arm, flexing, and gave Daichi a wink.

(( or, alternatively: “do you even lift, bro?” ))

Kiss it Better, Captain (6k) (M) (utsu)

In which Koushi realizes that it’s okay to be human.

**(This is the one fic on the list that is untagged borderline E smut)

The Captain and his Vice (Series) (145k) (G-M) (Crollalanza)

Daisuga stories that follow the same canon. They’re not necessarily in timeline order as some span several years. and it’s not entirely necessary to read them in this order. The majority of my HQ stories follow the same canon, and will intercept at certain points. Enjoy.

**(Mature fics do get smutty, but they are tagged.)

winner in the whirlwind (7k) (T) (tothemoon)

In which Suga beats Daichi at games and the latter finds someone to cherish.

(Or, snippets of encouragement and care under the guise of foot races, mischievous bets, and late night sessions of Mario Kart.)

just tell me how to get it straightforward (635) (G) (astroturfwars)

They don’t need words. They never have. It’s always been just them, heart to heart and eye to eye, and Daichi is as convinced of that as he is of the anxious thrumming of his blood.

Or: Daichi isn’t so good at expressing himself, but that’s never really mattered for Suga.

pride (4.4k) (T) (owlinaminor)

Daichi knows that Hinata accidentally called him ‘Dad’ once, and Suga often teases him about parenting the first-years, but this is just ridiculous.

“I’m not your dad, I’m your captain!” Daichi protests.

The cheering only increases in volume. They’re probably disturbing anyone who’s still at the school – but then, it’s New Year’s Eve. Nobody is still at the school besides Daichi’s insane, ridiculous, wonderful team.

“Okay, fine,” he says at last, raising his hands in surrender. “I’m proud to be your dad.”

Pick a Number, Any Number (3.3k) (G) (fansofcollisions)

It’s hideous. Repulsive, even. It makes Daichi want to curl up into a pretzel of existential horror.

“I call him ‘Bear’,” says Suga, smiling fondly.

when all the songs are through (5.7k) (T) (thewindraiser)

Daichi is out for lunch with some of his colleagues when he spots it.

The ring.

Halfway Between (5.3k) (T) (Skylark)

“Even if we come back here, it won’t be the same…. Some things won’t change, though. We’ll still play volleyball. We’ll still be friends.”

Suga comes home in more ways than one.

Suspicious Pizza (1.2k) (T) (Pouler)

Daichi felt his heart skip a beat. Was this it? Was this the moment?

Oh… (318) (G) (myria_chan)

The first time Daiichi says his name in public. Does it have to be in front of Karasuno?

somewhere i have never travelled, gladly beyond (5.2k) (T) (themorninglark)

Suga has learned to solve his problems, save for one.

It’s their graduation day, and he’s staring at it.

Burning (3.1k) (T) (DreadfulMind)

“Why do you have to make me look bad?”

Daichi scoffed, “yeah, like anyone could make you look bad,”

“Well when you’re showing off your muscles like that, the rest of us are left to look like twigs,” Suga tugged at the sleeves of Daichi’s t-shirt, which he had rolled up around his shoulders to cool his arms down.

“It’s hot, what do you expect?” he lightly slapped Suga’s hand away.

“For you to not be so hot,” Suga retorted easily.

They Call Me Captain Mom (4.7K) (T) (StormySteady)

Suga and Daichi make out in the gym’s supply closet. This decision proves exactly as injudicious as it sounds.

(Or, the story of that one time Daichi had to take over the role of “team mom” for a few minutes while a half-naked Suga just kinda hid in the corner and giggled)

you and your dusty radio, me and my two left feet (1.1k) (T) (raewrites)

Suga already has his fingers curled into the blanket, ready to bury himself back into the welcoming warmth of sleep when a thought suddenly crosses his mind.

‘It’s my birthday today.’

Sweatpants (3.5k) (T) (shady)

Daichi wears the same pair of gray sweatpants every time he spends the night, and they’re driving Suga insane.

Of Course (2k) (T) (ofperspicacity)

Daichi has been acting strange for a while, and Suga isn’t sure how to take it. The reason is the happiest kind of surprise.

Based on a section of “national hot dad alliance is now calling…”

First Snow (3.1k) (T) (Feelsripper)

Walking Suga home had started out as a joke between the two of them, until Daichi realized he sort of liked it way more than he should have.

Commit This to Memory (2k) (T) (shions_heart)

Daichi is in love with Suga. It just takes him a while to confess.

Mom And Dad No! (1.6k) (T) (imabignerd, kate882)

Suga and Daichi find out about the team calling them Mom and Dad behind their backs in an unfortunate way.

Look; it’s You and Me (1.4k) (T) (WildKitte)

How should he say this? That he listened to a sappy love song and got so wound up around it thinking Daichi that it became unbearable to be physically separated from him?

In which Suga listens to a song.

PDA (4.3k) (T) (Veto_power_over_clocks)

Someone’s leaving thimbles for (an increasingly confused) Suga. We all know how it’s going to end, but what matters is getting there, isn’t it?

Opening Night

Prompt: The first show of In The Heights was complete and being the good girlfriend that you are, you decide to be sober for the after party.

Pairing: Lin x reader

A/N: A quick drabble to get the gears moving again. Of course I didn’t proofread. Of course I’m going to do it once I post it. I was inspired to write this because of the ITH that flooded my dash today. P.S.: DID YOU KNOW SONNY IS THE NEW USNAVI?!



Lin’s suit jacket was tossed aside hours ago, lost in one of the tables in the venue.

His tie was next, loosened enough to for him to breathe while he danced with wild abandon.

Then the top two buttons of his shirt came undone and his sleeves were rolled up to his elbows, the heat from the bodies that surrounded the dance floor causing the thin material to cling to his body.

It was hours after the first show of In The Heights was completed, and Lin and the cast and crew were having the time of their lives. Your boyfriend, the genius behind the musical, was living it up, soaking in the success of the show. He laughed that crazy, maniac laugh of his, and shook his hips like his life depended on it. Lin was a social butterfly, and he fluttered around all night dancing with guests and taking celebratory shots.

You knew that he had enough when he was onstage, screaming a freestyle that professed his love and thanks to the cast. When he spotted you recording him, he pointed at you and leaped from the stage to grab you by the waist. “Yo this girl you see, the apple of my eye, center of my life, is going to be my wife!”

“Please stop,” you snorted as you pushed him away.

He cackled and pressed a sloppy, wet kiss on your cheek. Flashes from cameras and hoots from the crowd followed, and he jumped back on stage, yelling at the bartender for another round of shots. He and Robin, the biggest instigator of the night, stumbled to the bar, their greedy hands reaching for the shots Lin requested.

“Lin,” you said, having lost count of how many times you’ve said his name in that tone, “easy.” You take the second glass from his hand before he had the chance to drink it, and you couldn’t help but grin when he pouted and leaned forward to reach for the drink.

“Here, take this one,” Robin chimed in, drunkenly pushing a glass into Lin’s hand.

“You. Stop.” You spun to glare at Robin, “and oh my god, Lin,” you laughed when he clinked his glass against the one in your hand before downing the shot in one go.

“God, I couldn’t ask for anything more,” Lin yelled, slamming the glass down into the counter of the bar, “I just performed on Broadway and I’m going home with the most beautiful woman in the place!”

You smiled, reached for his tie, and pulled him down for a long kiss. The tangy taste of the alcohol was exhilarating and his hands that trailed down your back left a path of heat in their wake. But when his hands roamed down to your butt, you drew back. “Lin,” you warned when you heard Robin snickering beside you.

Luckily Chris and Lac whisked him away, and you were left to stare at your silly boyfriend who continued to dance the night away. You were fine with watching him from a distance; parties were never really your thing. Besides, tonight was Lin’s night. He deserved everything and more for what he’d accomplished.

When you saw him start to undo the remaining buttons of his shirt, you rushed forward, knowing that it was time to intervene. “Lin please,” you giggled as he reached for you. He took your hand and spun you so that your back faced his front.

“My lips feel numb,” Lin whispered against your ear, arms coming down so he hugged you from behind, “and the room is spinning, but I fucking feel great.”

You peeled yourself away from his body and squealed when he dragged you back into his arms. You give Lac an exasperated look when he pressed his nose against the curve of your neck, peppering kisses against your skin. “Lin.”

“Nothing compares to how happy I feel right now, not even when I was up there playing Usnavi or when I finally figured out how to right click on my Mac – do you remember that? I want to live in this moment forever.”

“You’re a sweet talker even while your drunk, Lin,” you hummed, smiling softly at his rambling.

He sloppily spun you around to face him. “You love it. You love me.”

You wiped the sweat off his forehead and gave him a kiss, rolling your eyes when an inebriated Robin interrupted to hand Lin another drink. “We’ll see how much I love you tomorrow,” you muttered, chasing after the two when they began to start a conga line with the cast and crew, “when you can barely get up from bed because of your hangover.”

A white shirt flung past your head and you let out an incredulous laugh when you recognized that it belonged to your boyfriend.

Happy opening night, Lin.

Pride Month for an ARMY

I have been wanting to make this post for a while (and I once made something similar a while back but it’s on a long lost Tumblr account lol), but it takes time to really express myself properly so let’s go!

I am bisexual, and as a K-Pop fan, it’s really hard to deal with fanservice being used, but LGBT barely being represented.

Being an ARMY already is an incredible experience, but to be an long time ARMY is something completely different. Mainly because I got to watch the boys grow, and Jungkook in particular.

When I said I have been wanting to make this post, I am talking about when I heard ‘Begin’. It was that moment that I thought, “Yes. This needs to be said, and I am gonna say it dammit”.

‘Begin’ is about Jungkook coming into his own and finding himself with the help of six older men who basically raised him. He was a small 14 year old kid who knew nothing of the world and was afraid of everything. He used to cry a lot out of fear of singing for others, he would wait until everyone was asleep to shower and even eat out of fear. The boys in each of their own ways, from Namjoon’s wisdom, Seokjin’s parental instinct, Yoongi’s life experience, Hoseok’s happiness, Jimin’s affection, and Taehyung’s ability to be himself without shame made him ‘Begin’. Through this love they gave, he came to love them so much that when they are in pain, that is where he is most in pain. Their suffering is his suffering and for me, his best traits come from two places, the people who most influence him, and his own amazing personality. Also, note that this song was something that Namjoon helped him write and Jungkook cried over because it meant so much.

Now, I bet you are wondering, what does this have to do with Pride Month?

Well, I think one of the best things I have noticed about Jungkook is that he loves unconditionally and regardless of actual orientation since we do not know and can’t assume either way, he has come to love all people, and support them…and where only a few in the industry actually are open about this, to see Jungkook speak through actions and words brings a great PRIDE in my heart, as an LGBT. Why do I focus on him? Because I think one big factor played in this: Namjoon.

Namjoon has openly expressed his support for the LGBT, and is Jungkook’s biggest influence. He has said this multiple times. So, to be raised and most influenced by an ally is amazing in itself, but let me show you a few things: 

1. Jungkook hates prejudice. Notice how he just states something so serious. Now, I want to say this before anything else. This is so important due to how the rest kind of answered with what people expected.

Now, I have NO feelings that any member doesn’t support. They are all open and loving people. Hell, Jimin and JHope actually danced in video for Glam ‘Party XXO’, a song about a girl not caring if the person she is into is a boy or girl, because nothing is wrong with either, but Jungkook was a little one and this was just when his hero Namjoon was starting to influence him. Which leads me to my next point.

2. Namjoon co-wrote and co-composed Glam’s ‘Party XXO’ and Jungkook danced in the video. What’s crazy enough is that this group was a part of BigHit, which shows me that they in themselves are pretty LGBT friendly too, but that is simply speculation.  

 Can I state that while the song features her being attracted to the girl, the lyrics mention breaking down walls, opposition, and taking off the blindfolds to the worldview? The intention was never to fetishsize, but to just show that regardless of attraction to a gender or both, it is okay and screw the hate. Now, sadly, this group had to disband due to some very unfortunate actions of member Dahee, but still, this song exists, made by Namjoon, and debuted with BigHit, with Jungkook in the video.

3. Now, that last one could have been a collective influence due to 4 members of BTS being involved, and BigHit themselves, but these next ones are definitely where Namjoon influenced Jungkook. As we know, the two covered ‘Fools’ by LGBT artist Troye Sivan, a song made for Troye’s former lover who left him due to what most have gathered is internalized homophobia and struggles. 

This is simply a cover, but I think it does play a part, seeing as the meaning behind the song is so poignant and Namjoon already stated he loved ‘Same Love’ by Macklemore even more after he learned that it was about a homosexual relationship. So, I don’t think it is merely just a cover.

4. ‘I Know’ and the actual meaning behind it. Now, this is when I noticed something interesting, but let’s talk about the song first. It was written by Namjoon for the Third Year Festa anniversary, and was meant for the fans. Now, how many fans LOVE BTS and I mean in the desire to be romantic way? I mean, we all know. This song is meant to show that Namjoon knows too. Now, there was speculation on if this song was released around the time gay marriage was once again rejected in Korea, but lets leave that alone for now.

“I know your gaze that remained on me that day is something shared between you and me that can never be replaced” - I Know by Namjoon

This is not a statement to take lightly. It means so much, and so the inclusion of the lyric ‘Know you love me boy so that I love you” is so much more meaningful. 

Now, to the interesting part: Why does Namjoon make these songs with Jungkook? Like I said, no member in my opinion shows any prejudice, but there must be a reason this happens with those two. Something that is shared. I think it has a lot to do with Namjoon being Jungkook’s biggest influence, to which he states so often. I just think there is a lot more to this than some think.

5. Can we just talk about that fanboy? You know the one. The sweet boy who not only came out to Jungkook but also confessed to him AND asked him out on a date. Now, yes, I am perfectly aware of what fanservice is. I know that catering to fanboys is nothing new. Hell, I even know that pretending to accept their requests to date them is nothing new, but can we just REALLY talk about this. Jungkook said yes to the date, but what is important is what came before it. Now, translations are hard to determine, but I have got two answers. 

One was: I really love Jungkook, even though I am a boy (note that because he said this, it’s him stating that his love is not a platonic love). Would you be willing to go on a date with me?

Jungkook apparently responded with what I found to be one of the two:

“Courage! Yes! (to the date)” or “You have guts! Yes!”

I do not believe a guy like Jungkook would throw away those feelings for status and approval from fans like he only is saying it for fanservice. He knows how important this is. I don’t know, I have heard two opinions: That he meant it or he didn’t want to hurt the fan by rejecting him. I happen to think the first, but either way it is no joke to him and it is NOT FANSERVICE. 

I know that this post was all over the place, and I know I probably missed a lot of other things that have happened but please note that I 100% believe that Jungkook would have come to be accepting on his own, but with Namjoon there, he became more comfortable with himself. Does this mean that I think Jungkook is LGBT? Well, I do, but that doesn’t matter really…point is…

In honor of Pride Month, and coincidentally Festa Month, I want to thank Namjoon for helping our maknae grow into the beautiful person he is today, and to our maknae, who came into his own as the beautiful person he is today.

Disclaimer: This is not really relevant, but I did want to mention it. I do think Jungkook shows interest in certain members of BTS in a possibly confused and different way, but that is a whole other can of worms I will open another day.

UPDATE: I want to add something to this since today happened. Can we appreciate that not only all of the things in my post happened BUT Jungkook and Jimin released a song meant to be a duet between two lovers and they didn’t change the pronouns for Jimin’s lines? Pride Month for an ARMY is starting off beautifully.

THAT SIGH!!

Since I am pathetic at making gifs I was hoping someone else whose talented in that area would make it and post it and I could reblog this moment and comment on it. But somehow I have not seen this particular gif where Jon visibly audibly sighs while looking into Sansa’s eyes!!!!

So a lot has been spoken about Sansa’s gentle soft expression when she asks Jon “Would that be so terrible?” But look at Jon guys…

He looks lost in her eyes. He actually audibly expels a breath. You can hear it!! It’s an audible SIGH!! You can see his shoulders move along with the fur that he’s wearing. And it’s because of what Sansa says to him and his *Sansa, you are driving me up a wall but I’m drowning in your eyes* SIGH as a response that when the maester comes with the raven, it looks like he has interrupted an intimate moment!!

Also, is it just me or is Jon overreacting to everything that Sansa is saying. Almost as if he’s searching for reasons to be annoyed with her. He looks frustrated around her, jumpy even. Even when he tells her about the night king. Is Jon irked only because he thinks she’s trying to undermine him or SHIPPER GOGGLES ON 😎Is he frustrated around her because he can’t figure out this warm fuzzy feeling she’s causing in him every time she’s around?? Lol!!Well not so dramatic, but something of the sort.

But the sigh!! *sigh* Look at him! Just look at him!!

If someone can make a better GIf of this moment with slow mo and other effects I’ll be grateful. Please don’t forget to tag me so that I can sigh looking at it and say “Oh, Jon Snow!!”

McMansion Hell Site Changes

Hello All! It’s been awhile since I’ve done any housekeeping and I wanted to let everyone know what kind of changes will be on the way as the blog approaches the 1 year marker (!!!)

Summer Schedule

The summer post schedule will be as follows:

Monday - informative, semi-serious posts about architecture, history, and theory. 

Thursday - Weekly house roasts. I moved this to Thursday to give myself more time to write them than just a single day. Monday & Wednesday are just too close together. 

This schedule will change when school is in session. 

Changes to Site Layout etc. 

Some changes that will be rolling out over the coming weeks:

  • I will be spending some time this week updating the Certified Dank™ section with the 50 States posts. 
  • The What the Hell… section will be renamed and updated. 
  • An About section will be added with info about the author. 
  • An Articles section will be added with articles I have written for other publications. 
  • Tumblr Chat will be discontinued - there’s no way I can keep up with the massive amount of Tumblr messages I get. To put it in perspective, McMansion Hell has 39,000 Tumblr followers, there is no way lil ol’ me can answer chats coming from a pool of people that large. That being said, I definitely respond more frequently to Tweets (@mcmansionhell). 
  • McMansion Hell will begin migrating to Wordpress. Do not fret! Weekly posts will still be posted in their regular format to Tumblr. This move is mostly a practical one so I can have more control of how the blog looks and feels, and because Wordpress is a more stable platform than Tumblr which has had issues with dead links, theme issues, etc. 
  • Changes to Contact Section - I struggle with email a lot. I receive over 100 emails a day with real estate links, “PLEASE ROAST”, etc. and a lot of important emails get lost in the noise. While I appreciate these emails and that people are getting excited about the architecture of their own communities, it’s become extremely difficult to manage and there is no feasible way for me to answer every single one of these messages. I’m trying to come up with a better solution to this problem, and if anyone has any ideas for how to manage this problem, feel free to send me an email with “Email Suggestions” in the subject line. 

Thanks again everyone for all your love and support! 

A little while ago I posted a picture of my “Lost the battle, win the war” tattoos and this is what I wrote: “I never tell anyone about the true meaning behind these tattoos because I never wanted anyone to know, but I’m tired of being ashamed of my past. I got these tattoos on February 11th, 2015. The lyrics ‘lost the battle, win the war’ are from the song Now by Paramore. From 2011-early 2014 I struggled with self harm and suicidal thoughts. Back then, I didn’t know why I was feeling the way I was but I realized later on that it was due to dysphoria. I felt a disconnect with my outside appearance and how I actually saw myself. One night in November 2013 I was sitting in the shower having a complete break down and I had everything ready to kill myself right then and there. I was done, I was exhausted, and I didn’t want to fight anymore. Just as I was working up to killing myself I began to really listen to the music I had playing. Now by Paramore was on and the part where the lyrics “there’s a time and a place to die, but this ain’t it” are being repeatedly sung was on. All of a sudden those lyrics hit me and I felt like they were a sign to keep going, to keep fighting. And so I did. I put down the razor and picked myself up, I let Hayley’s voice tell me to keep breathing. That song gave me the strength to save myself. These lyrics remind me that even if I ‘lost the battle’ and had moments in my life where I was ready to die and where I self harmed, it didn’t matter because as long as I keep pushing through and breathing then I will 'win the war’ and I will live a long and happy life.“ For the past couple months I’ve been struggling with dysphoria and sometimes it’s hard to just find the energy to do more than lay in bed all day. On days like that, I like to stare at these tattoos and remember how far I’ve come and how far I have yet to go. I may not be 100% ok, but I’m sure as hell getting there.

Uhh this weekend I accidentally wrote a NINETEEN PAGE Shovel Knight comic and… I guess I’m gonna be inking and uploading these between working on webcomic stuff and… life.

It’s a post-Shovel of Hope comic about the Phase Locket. I… can’t take all the credit for this because I was kinda thinking of @wunderscheisse ‘s Phase Locket comic that she did back when Plague of Shadows first came out while I wrote this. You should go read that one too!

But yeah! I’ll work on these as I can!

Hello Every-WUG!

Today, many places around the US are having the delayed viewings of the Happy Party Train Tour. In fact, I’ll be attending the one in Columbus! For many, this will be their first live viewing, and I wanted to simply remind everyone of the most important thing!!

Please do not take photos or record any of the live, whether it be for your personal memories or to post online.

Many countries lost the right to have a DV because there were people posting photos from the live and videos from the viewing. In Japan, it is not only common courtesy, but the rule to not share images of the live or post recorded videos. While many news outlets do post pictures, posting personal images can ruin the chance of getting any other live viewings in the US or Canada!

Please stay safe at your live viewings, and thank you for helping turning Zero into One!
