Lame adaptations and sequels are always like, “how can Mina go back to her stifling Victorian marriage after her experience with the dark, seductive Dracula??”

Meanwhile, Mina marries her best friend, who she’s known since they were children, who she share common interests with, they build a home together, work as partners, make immense sacrifices for each other, support each other through their traumas.

Guys, a marriage isn’t stifling and restrictive just because two people… get along, I guess?

capricorns have a high distress tolerance but at its peak they become withdrawn, intensely melancholic, sour, and paranoid. the world can really take on a grey wash approach for them, and for the people around them

Hi Cassie! I really love your books and I can't wait for Lord of Shadows to come out! One particular character from the Shadowhunter world seems really interesting to me - Robert Lightwood. Imho he tries very hard to correct his past mistakes and also to be a good grandpa! Will we hear more from him?

We do hear more from him in Lord of Shadows where, as the Inquisitor, he has a surprising part to play.

March 29

In 845, Viking raiders sacked Paris.  Yes, the one in France.  Which is nowhere near the ocean.  Those mofos sailed right up the Seine, killed and stole whatever they felt like, and then exacted a huge ransom from the city to leave.

That’s right.  They gave so few fucks that they would come in, steal your shit, and demand that you pay them to go away.

You might think that’s pretty metal, but then you realize that the leader of the raiding party was a fellow named Ragnar Lodbrok.  And you might think that’s metal as fuck, but THEN you learn that Ragnar had sons named  Ivar the Boneless, Björn Ironside, Halfdan Ragnarsson, and Sigurd Snake-in-the-Eye.

Right now, somewhere in Valhalla, Ragnar Lodbrok is being serenaded by Lemmy, with Dimebag Darrell shredding kick-ass riffs on a guitar made from the bones of ogres and using a dragon scale as a pick.

in better light, everything changes | chapter 14/14


the final chapter is (finally) up! i can’t thank you guys enough for being so patient and supportive, it really means the world to me. an extra special thank you to @theleavesoflorien, @soyellowcurtainsthen and @coldharmonies for reading this over and helping it see the light of day. i have a lot more rambling to do, but i’m going to save it for the end notes on ao3 💛

Remember that we almost got Matthew daddario playing jace instead of alec

Sometimes I just get chills thinking that we almost didn’t have the wonderful Matthew daddario who has such great chemistry with harry shum jr when playing Alec and Magnus and is just the perfect Alec salty lightwood we could have ever dreamed of and instead could have had him play jace. Not saying that Matthew wouldn’t nail the performance it’s just he personifies Alec and almost not having him as that is scary af Just imagine…. (shivers)

asDfgHJKLKJHGFsaasdf u make me cry omg thank you so much. <3 it’s so great that there are still so much lovely people pulling me back into writing my smol baby. i remember meeting so many amazing people through rping and i hope to get to know even more.

ur so lovely omg. c: and i’m so happy there are more nilfgaardian characters (although if i read correctly last night he’s vicovarian?) and i’m so tuned for all the new muses and muns.

In case you didn’t notice, I am officially back from my hospital trip. School is still trying to drown me in work and stress, but I should be able to get back to answering your asks. As of now, there’s about 45 asks in my inbox, and I do my best to answer two a day. That means it might take as much as three weeks before you see your ask answered. I wish I’d be able to get to them all sooner – and I love doing this – but I really have to prioritise my health and education.Thanks for all your lovely messages of support, and for just liking, reblobing, and following me. It really means the world to me.

Quiet World

I’m at the train station and was covering my ears when a particularly loud train arrived. I was listening to the muffled sounds of the station and for a moment I really wished the world could always sound like this, or there could be a switch to turn down the volume. I considered staying like this forever but then realised that I can’t cover my ears for the rest of my life.

Also, I wouldn’t want to block out everything. Just most things. Not music, not a person talking to me, not birds, not cats purring, not kids laughing.

There’s a lot of sounds I like, it’s just… the mass of sounds and their combined volume and… it’s just all a lot and exhausting and sometimes it hurts, not just my ears but in all kinds of places (which I assume to be a form of synesthesia, but I’m not sure, it might be normal).

Daylight Comes And Goes

It’s one of those grey, rainy days where you just want to pull up the blanket, and cower undercover. It’s one of those worlds, really. 

If I could sit here, and write anything, what would I write? Would it be this, this statement, this question? Would I just put a mirror in front of a mirror and see what’s reflected when there’s nothing to see but the introspection of inanimate objects?

I could be a werewolf, traveling the world in a hustling automobile, making new friends and devouring them. Or maybe I could be some sort of a dirigible, a big floating blimp, climbing lazily through the sky, a sort of manmade cloud maybe full of poisonous gasses and threatening to combust just for the sake of adding a little red and yellow and orange to all that blue, or in this case, grey.

Come on, what do you want to do, do you want to get lost? Do you want to ve found? Do you want to be discovered? Shall we stay an occult message in a world that lacks mystery and imagination? Or do you want to transform, and take on a whole new form? 

Raindrops are prisoners of gravity but they dream of being free.

As do we all.

ofmistandrain  asked:

3, 4, and 7 for the character design ask if that's ok!

💡 3. Has creating a character ever made you realize something about yourself?

Yeah. I was writing Vincent a couple years ago and I realized that I’d put a lot of myself in him. And how he saw the world and was disillusioned with it… that applies to me. It made me realize that I feel let down with how mundane the world really is.

🦋 4. Any minor characters that have either taken over or branched off into their own stories?

I have a whole list of fics and stories of minor characters, like Carmadda’s parents, Auntie Tetla working with Braden, Vanyke’s kids, Orannus’ brothers (im sure there’s more but I can’t think of anything past this for swtor at the moment). For my book, I’ve got a ‘prequel’ kinda planned for after the main series, where it goes back two generations to how some plot stuff in the main series happens, and it’d be about minor characters. 

📌 7. Do you have characters that you know you’ll never use, but can’t bear to get rid of/recycle?

Not nay that come to mind immediately. I try and make characters as needed, and if I don’t need them, I make them background characters with puns somehow involved. Or at least, I try to get a pun involved.

Like Peter the village piper.

thank you for asking!

If you ever think your fandom is the best fandom just remember that Japanese shawols are sending Canadian shawols lightsticks because they won’t get to have any for the concert. That’s real love bitch.
