posting this now before i forget

Finally caught his scamming ass! I screwed with this guy for about 2-3 days now (he had the audacity to say he values fast responses but took a full day to answer me for my first two texts) and I was WAITING for him to ask the golden question.
Bank info.
Nice try. Let’s forget the fact that I can’t post the whole convo, which was a hot mess of typos, shit that didn’t even make sense “not a single atom of lie”, despite the fact that he was lying. I deadass called him out “I’ve seen guys pretending to be women before” and this man was so dense that he didn’t respond to it. “Oh that’s not good”. Also gave me tons of “historical facts” about Egypt, where he was supposedly raised until he moved to the US and his parents died in a tragic accident. 🙄🙄 He thinks I’m in Pre-Med, but the truth of the matter is, I’m double majoring in World History and Archaeology, with a minor in Chinese.I specialize in Asian, Scandinavian, and Egyptian history. I KNEW his history facts were complete bullshit. Said he loves how Norwegians speak Dutch (This is priceless, my native language is Norwegian, and my family immigrated from Norway) after I mentioned that I was Scandinavian. Talks about all these “businesses” he owns, like hanging “dry sheetwall” (that’s not a thing, by the way. Drywall and Sheetrock, however, are).
DUBAI IS NOT IN EGYPT.
BLACKLIST THIS PIECE OF SHIT, PLEASE. I know a lot of new SBs aren’t good at screening and people like this WILL get you. This conversation was literally one hot mess and my mascara is smudged from laughing so hard that I cried. If someone using these pictures contacts you on SA using the name Sophia (the last name has been Brittany and Barrymore so far) DO NOT RESPOND. It is a man, and he is a scammer. Block him. If someone offers you trips, jewels, money, whatever you want, right off the bat, they’re likely a scam.

Don’t respond to this man, girls. SCREEN SCREEN SCREEN. Seriously. Keep yourselves safe FIRST. You’re safety IS THE MOST IMPORTANT THING.

As for how I feel about him?


Miss me with that stupid shit.

I don’t even know half these shows, but I do know about the drama being directed towards the writers in them.

How dan and Phil probably broke up #62
  • Phil: You've been bad and bad boys get punished
  • Phil: *ties Dan to the bed*
  • Dan: Ooo are we gonna have kinky se-
  • Phil: *plays hello internet on loop*

So as the photo mentions above, this is a series of posts I will be posting for Back to School! I start school on the 5th of September, and so with around 1 week to go, I thought of posting a set of posts to get me back into the school mood.

These posts may include tips that I haven’t yet tried and will try once school starts, hopefully they help you out too!

HOW TO BE PRODUCTIVE AFTER SCHOOL
In school:
As soon as your teacher gives you any homework/assignments, WRITE.IT.DOWN. Trust me, chances are you’ll forget it later on.

On the way home: Check your to-do list/planner/bujo and break bigger tasks into small sub-tasks. Choose one/multiple task/s on the basis of:

  - Will you procrastinate on it later on? If yes, DO IT NOW.
  - Will you be able to finish it before you have your snack/lunch? If yes, do it.

At home:
- As soon as you reach, check your to-do list/planner/bujo and take out the required books/other supplies you may need for all your tasks for the day and keep it on your desk/wherever you study. This will be beneficial for later as you have less reasons to procrastinate (the books are right next to you)
- Get started with your task/s you chose to do in the previous step and finish it.
- Have a snack/lunch (in my case). This is where you can check your phone and other social media sites.
- Rest for a little while. If you feel sleepy, take a nap. If naps make you feel even more tired, either go for a quick shower or simply get started with a simple task.
- Set a certain time to finish all your homework/assignments/studies for the day, and then reward yourself by watching your favorite TV show or YouTube videos, scrolling on Tumblr, reading a book, whatever you like. Avoid doing these activities during your study break, so once your done, you will feel like you deserved that reward.

2. How To Be Productive After School // study tips + - by @studywithinspo3. How To Be Productive After School + 5 STUDY TIPS! - by Ways To Grow

And that’s it. This is of course, easier said than done, and you’re receiving advice from someone who has spent days just sitting in one place, procrastinating and sleeping really early, feeling exhausted, without even doing much. 

For the first few days of school, try not to be too hard on yourself. You’ll probably be tired and that’s fine. Rest for 1-2 days (if you really feel like you have to) and then hustle harder with full force. If you don’t feel that tired, then hustle harder from day 1!

Tomorrow’s topic: How I organize my tasks + other task management systems

The Foxes are all over in Matt and Aaron’s room

  • Andrew and Neil have been in the kitchen together a little too long when Aaron calls from the next room “Could you not have sex in my kitchen?”
  • The upperclassmen quickly make bets on how injured Aaron is going to get for that comment
  • Andrew pops into the doorway of the kitchen to argue “We weren’t having sex in the kitchen. But I did give him a blowjob on the couch you’re sitting on.”
  • Matt does a fucking full blown spit take and definitely ends up with some coffee up his nose
  • Dan pats him on the back with one hand while he chokes
  • With her other hand, she takes his coffee out of his hand and sets it on the table so that he won’t spill it
  • Aaron looks absolutely horrified, which is of course the reaction Andrew is going for and so of course it eggs him on
  • “You could go for a shower to wash the filth off, but then again I blew him in there too.”
  • And Aaron already has to hear enough about his cousin’s sex life, he doesn’t need to hear about his twin’s, so he’s like “Stop.
  • But Andrew’s just listing off locations that he’s done sexual things with Neil in in the same bored tone a waiter uses when they’re running through their memorized list of specials
  • And everyone is just staring at him because Andrew doesn’t talk about him and Neil or show any form of PDA and now suddenly he will not shut up about the sexual favours he performs for Neil
  • “Oh, and I gave him a handjob against that wall, right beside your desk.”
  • “Shut the fuck up.”
  • “And don’t forget whose bed that was before you switched rooms.”
  • Andrew!
Comprehensive List of Ryden Songs

For anon! Marking the songs written by Ryan as R and Brendon as B

  • ‘You could tell me secrets that I’ll probably repeat
    I’m not trying to hurt you, I just love to speak’  
    we know Ry is a secretive person and Brendon has a big mouth so yeah 

Nearly Witches: R+B ahhh The Song Of Salt and pain

  • Ryan wrote the song during the cabin days, but later Brendon used it on V&V with some modifications
  • basically he changed it from a creepy, spooky song to a romantic thing
  • also he changed Ryan’s ‘as a boy’ to ‘as a girl’
  • AND THE Main Thing: Brendon mocked Ryan’s original lyrics ‘here I am composing a burlesque’ Very Frequently by singing it in a.. camp way.. and thrusting his hips etc

Memories: B check this out

The Calendar: B subtlety has never been B’s best suite 

  • This is officially about the split and Ryan and Jon. Like confirmed.
  • but  ‘And I meant everything I said that night

Hurricane: B 

  • Cause they know, I know that they don’t look like me.
    Oh, they know, I know that they don’t sound like me.  -
    referring to the young veins changing their style 
  • But he didn’t come and speak to me, Or put my heart at ease.

Casual Affair: B

  • preceded by an anti gay message from an old film during live shows
  • which possibly implies it’s about a gay affair? I think brendon said it was about fantasizing etc so yeah

Nicotine: B brendon’s denied it, but a lot of people think the muffled intro sounds like I love you Ryan Ross, but not right now…

Lonely Moonlight: R  Ryan’s solo work

  • ‘When I had a younger heart, You told me not to fear the dark’
  • ‘Someone I love loves someone else’  awww poor bb

Where I Belong: R again one of Ry’s 2014 demos

  • If you wanna see the sun, You’re gonna have to dig your way out - Sun & Moon theory 
  • I know I should’ve never left, I’d gotten tired being buried -possibly he was tired of hiding behind Brendon’s voice for his words, but he regrets leaving
  • I hope that I’ve still got your help - Ryan’s actually said he’s not against working with panic again

Impossible Year: B

  • There’s no sunshine, This impossible year - Sun & Moon theory  
  • bitter pills, tattoos, last bruises, no you and me

House of Memories: B he’s not subtle lmao

  • Those thoughts of past lovers, They’ll always haunt me.. I wish I could believe, You’d never wronged me 
  • honestly, brendon didn’t really have very serious relationships before Sarah so who is he talking about?? (ryanryanryan)

Golden Days: B the throam song (I’m looking @ u anna green)

  • I found a pile of Polaroids, In the crates of a record shop

  • plans are cancelled

  • that’s why there’s no trust in this family 
  • looking forlornly out the window 
  • do you think that someone put a curse on them
  • how does this always happen
  • ?????????

key:

  • therefore was voted the one to go out and buy groceries bc they are out and are in need of food 
  • damn his fashionable practicality 
  • when he came back he’s dripping and his bangs are plastered to his forehead (minho: wow did jonghyun cry on you / jong: *was minding his own damn business* hEY)

  • ~popping~ 
  • he put on sunny day video from youtube so they could pretend that it’s nice out (ot5: wow this is a next level of sad)

honestly i feel like tumblr is a rly unhealthy environment if you’re gay/trans. issues like homophobia/transphobia are magnified on here, which makes u feel a million times worse and more isolated from irl society.

for example, i was out on tumblr long before i came out to anyone irl, and i was expecting people to literally shun me based on how people online talk, and it’s sooooo unhealthy. thinking about it now it definitely contributed to my internalized homophobia.

in general on tumblr it’s very “us vs. them” which is true to an extent, and straight cis people DO make comments about us or harass us. but there are so many accepting people that tumblr forgets about, and i think that’s really harmful for younger lgbt people to be surrounded by

J2 TorCon 2017 Main Panel
  • J2 jump onstage!
  • Jensen: Do you know what week it is?? We premiere this Thursday. 
  • Jensen is also talking about Jared being on Jimmy Kimmel this Thursday as well :)
  • “My dear friend Mr. Jared Padalecki will be on Jimmy Kimmel Thursday Oct 12th so tune in” - Jensen promoting Jared. Jared: Ackles warmed him up for me…so tune in guys, we’re gonna have some fun. Jensen: Yeah, it’ll be a big night. We’re very excited about it. 
  • What memory would Sam and Dean stick to if they died (like Bobby with his memory of the boys)? Jared mentions the flashbacks in Swan Song and the “I’m proud of us” moment. Jensen says a collection of good moments (bros reuniting, stuff with John, Mary, Bobby, Cas) but also those moments of killing big bads. 
  • What story would you extend/elaborate on? Jared says Demon!Dean and Soulless!Sam. Jensen: Dean in Purgatory. 
  • Fan mentions her Russian blue cat named Winchester. Jensen: It’s a blue cat from Russia. That’s all you need to know. 
  • Boys go off on accents and jokes. At one point, Jared says: “If there was a place in Toronto that served Vladimir Poutine I would totally go and take Winchester with me.” Jensen and the audience crack up. Jensen: That dude’s got a blue cat. And he’s eating poutine. 
  • Who would you vote as the most ditchable prom date of the cast? Jensen: Cas. Jared: Story-wise, probably Sam. This is gonna sound the wrong way, but, Sam probably should’ve ditched Ruby. Jared got the better end of the deal lol. 
  • Young fan says her name is Lilith. J2 very quickly back up and Jared knocks over his chair lol. She asks their favorite monster. Jared: I’m gonna say Lilith. Jensen: Me too, because if they’re all as cute as you, they’re my favorite. She says her fav monster is a ghost. J2 tell her that if she ever meets one, she should call her friends Sam and Dean. 
  • Fav childhood memory? Jensen: Very happy childhood, lots of good memories. For his fourth birthday he got to ride a horse for the first time. Wore his cowboy vest. Jared: He still has it. 
  • Jared: Now I feel weird about my answer! Broke his arm when he was seven and was in the hospital for a week, got spoiled in the hospital, getting candy, baseball cards…At the time, there was a rare card available where a player had written bad words on the bottom of his bat and the card company only realized it appeared in the image halfway through printing, so everyone was searching for the rare versions that had been printed. Jared’s dad would bring him a pack of baseball cards every day. 
  • If you could create an episode, what would it be. Jared: The world’s most boring episode. The boys doing their laundry. Wants to see Sam and Dean doing behind the scenes stuff. 
  • Jensen talks about a movie “Sliding Doors.” One choice that creates two split timelines and following both. Thinks that would be cool.
  • Advice for Sam and Dean in s13: Jensen: Knowing what I know, I would tell Dean not to jump to conclusions…talk amongst yourselves! Jared laughs. 
  •  Jared is trying so hard not to spoil anything: “I would say…not to get too attached. TALK AMONGST YOURSELVES.” 
  • Jared is doing accents. Jensen: Keep going you’re killing it. 
  • Fav part about working together? Jared: Days off. Jensen: Then we’re not working together. Both: TALK AMONGST YOURSELVES lmao. 
  • Jensen: There are a lot of things, but one of the best is that we laugh so much. In case you couldn’t tell. 
  • Jared talks about how it doesn’t feel like work, especially with the Sam and Dean scenes. 
  • J2 have spiraled into Coffee Talk impressions.
  • Any spoilers? Jensen: Prepare yourselves…for some interesting characters this season. Jared laughs and pretends to be shocked: I can’t believe you said that! Jared: New characters and you’ll see some fan favorites come back. 
  • If Sam and Dean could bring back one character? Crowd starts shouting names. Jensen: Did someone just say Jon Snow?  
  • Jensen: Would love to bring back Azazel…so I could kill him again. 
  • Jared chose Charlie, because she brings out a different side of the boys. Jensen adds Benny to the list, Jared also mentions Sully. 
  • Fan: Do you think Ruby will come back, mentions wanting Danneel on the show. Jared jokes that he would have to watch the kids and do the real work. Gen was able to come back for French Mistake but not sure if she’d be able to now. Jared agrees that he wants to see Danneel on the show, too. Jensen: She’s rockin’ three kids, too!
  • Jensen says that those decisions aren’t up to him. Says if they were the show would have been canceled a long time ago. Jared jokes about how if it was up to J2 they would just cast all of their friends. “Who’s that guy?”
  • Jared: What character would Danneel play? Audience shouts, Baby! Jensen: That could complicate things. Boys want to make a dirty joke but they cut themselves off lol. 
  • Someone in the audience is yelling out Garth. Boys can’t understand what they’re saying. Bunch of fans start yelling Garth, boys finally get it. Jared laughs and says it reminds him of Finding Nemo when the seagulls are saying “mine, mine, mine” over and over. He looked into the crowd and just saw a bunch of people going, “Garth, Garth, Garth” lmao. 
  • Jensen: If Danneel came on the show would you want her to be good or bad? Fan: Good. Jensen: But she plays bad so well. Jared nods. Jensen nods, goes to make a comment and cuts himself off lol. 
  • Fan: How does it feel to have fans like this? Jensen talks about how it took him awhile to really get it. Used to be more in his shell. Now he says it’s fuel for him seeing this kind of devotion. 
  • Jared is amazed at a fan’s incredible SPN body art. Boys are complimenting her on the amazing body art. 
  • Jared says don’t ever think that they think we’re “weird” for being too dedicated to the show. Because they are just as weird as us. Jared: If you’re crazy for spending 24 hours (on fan’s body art) then we’re crazy for spending 13 years. 
  • Fan: Was there a real Trickster, or was the lore about Gabriel? Jared thinks there was no Trickster, that it was just Gabriel hiding. 
  • Jared pronounced gif like jif. Jensen does not approve. Apologizes on his behalf for being silly lol. 
  • Any sport/activity you’ve always wanted to try? Jared mentions cricket, stunt driving courses…Jensen: Stunt driving is not a sport. Jared also mentions motocross. Doesn’t want to get himself hurt. Jensen: Kite surfing. Jensen says it needs to be a place without sharks. Fans: Great Lakes! Jensen: I don’t believe that. They’re in there. Just deep.
  • Funniest moment to film? Jensen: There are moments on a daily basis that make it impossible to film because they’re laughing. They mention the Chupacabra bit. 
  • Apparently Alex (who plays Jack) is like Misha 2.0 in terms of the boys messing with him lol :P J2M messed with Alex so bad the director, Nina Lopez-Corrado, actually kicked them off set. 
  • Jensen once told Jared to not speak in a scene so he didn’t mess around. Jared didn’t say a word and Jensen did his lines alone lol. 
  • Jensen says Jared can never get through telling a whole joke without busting out laughing before the punchline :P
  • Jared tries to make Jensen break during a scene, makes himself laugh and ruins the take even if Jensen is fine. 
  • Fan proposes Dark Angel crossover. Jensen thinks it would be neat, would want to recruit X5s to be on their side. 
  • If you had to live out a season of the show for a year, which season. Jared: Six, maybe?? At least I didn’t care, I was soulless. Also says season 9, maybe 10? Jensen: Season 4. Jared: What’d you do in four? Jensen: Nothing, that’s why I said four. 
  • Jensen is playing the keyboard for the last question. 
  • The fan is very flustered, it’s her first convention. Jared is comforting her. Jensen has been playing dramatic piano music all throughout the poor fan trying to get our the last question lol. The entire room is laughing and Jensen has not broken. The girl is overwhelmed and when Jared cuddles her to comfort her she pulled him into a hug aww lol. 
  • Question is about Adam’s whereabouts. She was a big fan of Adam’s and read a fan theory that maybe he got out of the cage. Jared: Now, to the cool stylings of Jensen Ackles…I think he’s in the cage. Fan joking around: Our half-brother’s in hell, let’s forget about him. Jared: Ehhh, yeah, it’s kinda true. But we do love Jake. 
  • Jared asks for Jensen’s opinion. Jensen, still playing: oooohh, yeaaaaahhhh.
  • Jensen snuck in a lower-back grab/pat on Jared as they headed offstage :)
  • Boys say thanks to the fans before taking off.

xxcuriouserandcuriouserxx  asked:

Hey do you have any tips for someone starting out as a fan fiction writer?

I don’t know if those will be relevant or helpful at all, but here we go:


  • Write for yourself.

This will always be my number one advice.

When you write, you put a piece of yourself out there. And yourself cannot please everyone. There’s a reason why I say I write because I can’t afford a therapist and it’s right there. You write for yourself first and foremost, because you enjoy it, because it allows you to escape, or to express something. Writing is incredibly personal, so don’t let others influence you too much.

Don’t write for the hits, the kudos or the comments. Write for yourself.

  • Learn how to write a summary.

Ok. That’s highly hypocritical of me because writing a summary is my ultimate weakness. I’m terrible at them. What I usually do is pick out a few sentences that are enough to pique the reader’s interest without revealing too much of the intrigue.

Don’t write “I’m terrible at summaries, the story is better” or something like that. Don’t ask for kudos and comments in your summary. It puts people off.

  • Check, double-check and triple-check.

There is no best way to make me click on the back button than a story full of grammatical mistakes. English is a rich enough language that you can try to play with it and bound the rules a little, but knowing the difference between “you’re” and “your” is a must, even for the most unconventional writers.

Same for the tense: it’s either past tense or present tense, not both.

Dialogue must be clear. Two rules: your reader needs to know who said what to whom and only one speaker by paragraph.

If you’re not sure about something, don’t be afraid to ask and if you can’t ask, Google is your friend. And use a spell checker.

If you can get yourself a beta, it’s even better!

Your writing will never be 100% mistake-proof but there are some mistakes more easily forgivable than others.

  • Respect the original characters.

In fanfiction, you are working with characters who already exist beyond yourself. They already have existent traits that make them who they are and that are a big part of why people love them so much. Of course, you can play with them, you can add a few of your own, but try to stay true to the original character.

People read fanfiction because of the original work, rarely because they stumbled onto it hazardously. They are here for the characters. They will stick around if you write them respectfully.

And please, do not change canon queer characters’ sexuality. 

  • Tag properly.

If there’s a major character death, tag Major Character Death. If there’s anything whatsoever that could trigger someone, fucking tag it.

Otherwise, you are very free in your choice of tags (my tags are all over the place, let’s be real) but try to at least use some that would catch a potential reader’s attention.

Don’t spoil your story in the tags, though.

  • Have a plot.

Have at least a few scenes and the main intrigue outlined before you start writing.

It’s always better to begin with the end in mind. It makes for a more compelling and coherent plot.

  • Choose a point of view and stick to it.

There is nothing more confusing than a scene written with two, or more, different points of view.

If you choose to go with one character’s POV, stick to it until the end of the scene and don’t switch randomly unless your new point of view brings something to the plot, a new perspective or an insight into a character’s mindset. Even then, do not change back. Finish the scene with that character, not the first one.

  • Do your research.

For the love of Magnus Babe, if you’re writing about a sensitive subject or something you know nothing about, if you’re writing smut (especially gay sex) for the first time, if your character gets badly injured and you’re not a damn doctor yourself, even if you’re writing about a country you’ve never been to: do your research.

  • If writer’s block hits, take a break.

It will happen. It’s frustrating and we all hate it, but it will happen.

Don’t try to force yourself to write then. Take a break. Go for a walk. Listen to some music. Re-read something else you’ve written or something by someone else that you really loved. Write something random, about your day, about something entirely different from the story you’re working on. Eat something you love. Just keep your mind off of it for a while.

If inspiration doesn’t come back, skip that paragraph and go back to it later.

  • Interact with your readers.

Reply to comments, DMs, asks on tumblr, etc. Whether you have 2, 20, 200 or 17000, acknowledge your readers. They’re the reason why we do what we do, and we owe them a lot.

  • Try to update regularly.

This is a complicated one, and I’m the first one to forget about that rule.

The chance that I have is that I now have an audience that follows me from story to story and that is willing to bare with my fucked-up updating schedule. 

You won’t have that chance when you’re just starting, so a good way to secure an audience and keep them interested in your story is to update regularly. It’s hard, but if you’ve got a few chapters written in advance before you start posting, it’s manageable.

  • Just start writing

Don’t overthink it.

Don’t try to come up with the most complicated plot. Just write what you want to write. If you’re willing to write it, there’s a high chance someone will be willing to read it.

What people find compelling and interesting doesn’t necessarily mean new and 100% original. We all love some good old prompts even though we’ve read different versions of it a hundred times before.

Just write whatever you want to write, and see where it goes from there.


Writing is hard. It takes practice and patience. There is something incredibly rewarding about writing fanfiction, though. The interaction with your readers is immediate and receiving a positive comment makes all the hard work worth it.

So, practice. Have patience. Hold on in there, and most importantly: have fun!

I hope this was helpful :).

WC’s NaNoPlanMo/Prep-tober Calendar

Say hello to your calendar of events for NaNoPlanMo! 

Each day of October is dedicated to a different aspect of planning for NaNoWriMo and will have daily resource masterposts to match! Topics are listed at the bottom of each day!


EVENTS

We will have plan-ins on Fridays and Sundays! An absolute time is TBA for each, but our October 1st plan-in will be at 4:30 P.M. CST on our Slack community! If you haven’t already submitted a member profile, check out details about our NaNo Membership HERE!

Saturday evenings will be dedicated to Feedback Nights! Feedback Nights will be your chance to get live answers and opinions from our Ask Team on all of the things that have you stumped and stuck in your planning process. Hours will be announced soon!

Kickoff Party: This will be on October 31st to celebrate the planning you’ve gotten done and prep you for a fun month of writing ahead! More details to come as we get closer to November!


ONGOING ACTIVITIES

Throughout October, WC will be accepting asks and submissions with any NaNoWriMo or writing related questions! Questions submitted outside of Feedback Nights will be answered by our Ask Team on a rolling basis as members are available. 

Don’t forget about our daily planning prompts either! Each day, we will have:

  • One World-building prompt
  • One Character prompt
  • One Craft prompt to directly address a certain aspect of writing craft (like description or dialogue!)
    and…
  • One “Wildcard” prompt to shake your planning process and keep things fun and fresh.

WC will also have a submission opportunity called Adventures in NaNo! WC member, @muffindragon227​, summed this event up best:

“While the main focus of Nano is on the stories we’re telling, but we often forget that NaNoWriMo is an adventure all its own. We set out with a goal to do something grand and along the way we have ups and downs. We face challenges, and we meet new people. So while we’re eager to hear and talk about your stories, we’d also like to hear about your journey as well. As such, we invite you to submit your experiences for us to share with everyone. Tell us about what’s happening, so we can cheer you on, pick you up, or laugh along with you!” 

So if you’ve overheard a conversation that you’re absolutely copying for your story, we want to hear it! If you’ve run across that one perfect but obscure reference, we want to celebrate with you! Submit your stories through our submission box–just don’t forget to include Adventures in NaNo in the title!


Finally, if you’re a WC member or follower, don’t forget to add your name to the WC NaNo Participant List! I plan on adding everyone who joins the list as a NaNo Buddy before NaNoWriMo begins, so be on the lookout for a request from mCubed35!

That’s all for now! Everyone at WC is looking forward to a successful NaNoWriMo season and we can’t wait to get planning and writing with you!

Please reblog this post to spread the word to the NaNoWriMo and writeblr community!
