rewrite the world

This is what love does: It makes you want to rewrite the world. It makes you want to choose the characters, build the scenery, guide the plot. The person you love sits across from you, and you want to do everything in your power to make it possible, endlessly possible. And when it’s just the two of you, alone in a room, you can pretend that this is how it is, this is how it will be.

What is ProjekTFealty? What is Horizon?

ProjekTFealty is the direct result of our goal to represent an underrepresented/ misrepresented/ ignored group of people.

We humbly swear our loyalty and the use of our talents and voices to provide hope, inspiration, and a safe haven to our community.

Our first project, ‘HORiZON’, is an exercise in a retroactive approach to remedying the demonizing of POC, LGBTQ+, and the disabled within a popular narrative.

This free –not for profit– work will attempt to heal a fandom and restore the representation that united and inspired a vast group of multinational fans.  

In Horizon, our goal is to stay true to the world we all loved while giving the fans not only what they deserved, but what they were owed; accurate characterization, equal representation, and the follow through on a promise made and affirmed for over 2 years.

This is our humble attempt to fix the mistakes of a callous show runner and an indifferent network.  

How are you going to do this?

We’ve already done it!!! We’re in the final stages of completing this epic multimedia experience.

Our writers are currently finishing a 13 episode season rewriting the entirety of season three.

Our artists are turning written scenes into amazing illustrations.

Our musicians have already composed original themes and scores for our episodes.

How can I get involved?

If you’re interested in getting involved, in whatever capacity, send us an email/ask/message with your interests and talents.

This isn’t a huge project and we want people who are willing to volunteer their time to be aware that this current project is already in progress and thus we have specific needs and assignments for you.

Right now, we are looking for a few talented artists to help alleviate the burden on our artists, who are AMAZING, but overworked at the moment.

Will this project focus exclusively on rewriting the Clexa scenes?

No. We are rewriting season 3 in its entirety and focusing on not only LGBT representation but also POC and other underrepresented groups.

Without giving too much away, this project isn’t just a rewrite. All of your beloved characters will get the storylines that they deserved.

What platform will this rewrite be available in?

Audiences will be able to access content on our website which is currently under construction.

Homestuck classpect musings

Something I realized last night: the only reason Homestuck actually has a plot is because the characters involved are all forced to play using pre-built character sheets; if SBURB/SGRUB had a halfway decent character editor built in, then a party of 3-4 dedicated powergamers could easilly snap the game in half.

Put simply, it’s actually pretty obvious that not all classes and aspects are created equal (no matter what some might say on the matter), and some simply become so utterly gamebreaking once explored that it isn’t even funny. To just give two examples that use nothing but canon information: Seer of Time and Seer of Space.

In canon, Seers are shown to see things and foresee events governed by their aspect. Rose, Seer of Light, is able to know the exact most fortuitous path that the meteor group needs to take, no matter how insane or convoluted that path actually is, and Terezi, Seer of Mind, is able to foresee the results of people’s decisions, possibly to the point of knowing what you will do before you do, and might even have been able to read thoughts if she had God Tiered (as evidenced by her being able to see Brain Ghost Dirk, actually see him, despite being blind at the time).

Meanwhile, Time and Space are the only aspects shown to be mostly literal, albeit with some esoteric connotations, literally governing the fabric of space and time. All Time players are shown to have the ability to time travel (a trick which is outright weaponized by Dave), Aradia is shown to be able to actually stop time for an enemy, and Lord English uses time itself as a weapon, wielding stable timeline loops as both sword and shield. Meanwhile, on the Space side, Jade is able to freely manipulate the mass and volume of objects, able to make a planet small enough to fit in her hand without any change in density, and alternate future Caliope is able to all but rewrite reality, manipulating the physical world in a way which, due to timeline complications in the Farthest Ring, should be impossible.

Combining this knowledge, Seer of Time and Seer of Space get really, really broken. To start with the weaker ability: a Seer of Space would be able to see everything, anywhere, at that exact moment. They wouldn’t exactly be able to foresee things, time being explicitly out of their control, but they would have perfect knowledge of reality at any given moment, making them a mathematical demon. No matter where you ran, they could catch you. No matter where you hid, they could find you. No matter what precautions you took, the only way to get around a Seer of Space would be to exploit either time based shenanigans, or to wield Void powers (something which even the omniscient can’t get around).

Meanwhile, a Seer of Time would be ridiculously, abominably, unstopably insane, able to foresee any and all conequences of everything that might or must happen, along with knowledge of when things must happen for events to unfold. While they themselves might not have any time travel powers (or at least, being so weak with time travel that there’s no real reason to bother), they wouldn’t actually need them, because they already know what the future holds. To give one small example of how insanely broken a Seer of Time would be, they would be able to know the exact moment needed to set off a packet of explosives, the blast from which would cause air turbulence, which would interact with the weather patterns already in existance, which would cause a cascade of unlikely but perfectly timed events to create an EF5 tornado, which would conveniently touch down just before it’s time to fight the Black King.

And this is just parsing canon information; I’d shudder to imagine how some other classpects would be, if fandom speculation is correct. Heir of Hope, assuming that Heir means, “protected by, and responsible for,” and that Hope means, “possibilities, dreams, and that which might be,” would mean that an Heir of Hope would be protected by possibility itself, to the point of trancending luck; all which is and might be would bend over backwards to protect the Heir of Hope, to the point of surrealism. A Prince of Void, using canon info here, would parse as, “one who destroys, or destroys through, that which is hidden or does not exist,” and would mean that a Prince of Void would be able to simply destroy the nonexistance of anything, probably able to create things to a far greater degree than Roxy in canon, who merely steals their nonexistance rather than destroying it. A Lord of Blood, assuming Lord to mean, “one who holds command and dominion,” and Blood to mean, “unity, community, and fraternity,” would parse out as, “one who commands unity,” and that ads up to the literally perfect leader, able to command any disparate group into a single well-oiled machine.

Really, the only reason Homestuck has a plot at all is because the characters shown actually have some pretty shitty classes and aspects. Give me a Seer of Time, a Knight of Space, an Heir of Hope, and a Prince of Void, and the biggest danger would be them arguing with themselves.

“Start where you are. Use what you can. Do what you can.”

finally bought an arc notebook (thanks for the idea @emmastudies ) to rewrite all my world history notes. although my notes don’t look as good as Emma’s, i am really enjoying the whole arc system and I’m going to do a review/post about it soon hopefully!

p.s: follow my studygram (x)! i wil be posting later! :)

I feel bad that slavery happened because it was a horrible thing and nobody should have had to go through that. I feel bad for the innocent people that were taken from their homes and forced into slavery and endured horrible conditions for the rest of their lives.

I do not, however, feel in any way shape or form responsible or guilty for slavery. I was not there. I did not nor have I ever enslaved anyone. I do not owe you an apology or reparations for something I (and 99% of the population that actually lived during that time) didn’t do.

I will mourn the trajedies of the past. I will condemn those actions and do what I can to help make sure that they are not repeated. I will not, however, tolerate bullying, harassment, or any other kind of intolerance towards me or others because we happen to share a similar skin shade as the men and women who committed those heinous acts. I will not stand by and let you rewrite world history or definitions to fit your hateful agenda. My heart bleeds for the people who suffered enslavement, but I have no sympathy for those of you who suffer victim complexes over something you never experienced. There are actual issues going on in the world right now, stop creating a fuss over something that stopped being an issue 200 years ago.
BREAKING NEWS: Yuzuru Hanyu of Japan rewrites the men’s free skate world record of Yuzuru Hanyu of Japan

*SHOUTING ENDLESSLY*

yuzuru beats yuzuru??? WHAT A SCANDAL

lmao no but seriously, i had to force myself to relax before he began his free. i noticed that he didnt waste any time and he was out there immediately. (screw off, late deduction)

i was clenching my fists for every jump- 4Lo, 4S, 3F, all clean. my nerves spiked all the way up during the dramatic crescendo before the dratted prodigal son, 4S-3T. like holy shit, i almost threw off my laptop when he landed it (PERFECTLY!). perfect execution of 4T, 3A-2T, 3A-half Lo-3S. axels were stellar like always. after 3lz i was most certainly sure that it was going to be a new world record.

i cant remember what exactly my reactions were last night but im pretty sure all i did was scream incoherently at the screen. (i may have let out a particularly loud warcry after the 4S combo…)

so yeah after the kiss and cry (he was holding back his tears of joy. me too, and maybe a whole lot of other fans as well), i realized how he just overcame the point gap and pulled himself from a dire 5th place to 1st place- with a new world record, mind you. like wow, can you believe him? big sis @yuzuruspoohsan said YES OF COURSE. i mean, what else are we supposed to do as his fans?

simply…wow. i have so much respect for him. 

and if that wasnt enough, max ambesi along with other fans pointed out the underscoring that happened to yuzuru. in the words of @fuckyeahdearlybeloved“the most underscored world record ever”. seriously, those +1 and +0 were RIDICULOUS. dude was robbed. judge no. 5, who hurt you? im not even going into detail how unjustly scored the others were, because that might be a little petty (no matter how frustrating)

*sighs* well the game’s not completely over yet- there’s still the world team trophy in japan to be held at April 20. last chance for yuzu to redeem his SP and who knows, maybe 3 new world records? lmao no pressure at all.

no matter what happens, my confidence and admiration in yuzuru transcends all the setbacks and disappointments.

‘Who lives who dies who tells your story’ 'Love is love is love is love, it can not be killed or swept aside’ Every generation of people, someone so great and wonderful comes along, they tell the story of those forgotten, they rewrite history, the make the world bright again, they build the ladder for those to come. *a thing I made about Lin, who is truly one of my idols and someone I dearly look up to, he has made me smile more then any one, though I have never met him, I feel as if he has known me my entire life, he is just…wonderful*

@unknxwnhxcker

everything sounds like a platitude when i write it out.
i say all these same things over again and again and again and again &
i write about feeling like
i’ve put myself through our breaking washing machine
a few too many times &
i never think it’s beautiful. it’s so much more interesting
to stand at the top of the world or paint myself in neon light
or pretend there’s only one person (you) at the center of my world.
that it’s been like this since time began and it will be like this
until the laws we stand on begin to unravel. then, do they
really matter, these eyes i’m drawing over and over and over again?
my poetry is useless right now because it is made of plastic &
the world loves reading about love and it loves reading about
the way love destroys and i love reading about rewriting the world
in slow motion.
all my poetry sounds the same &
i am a broken record, treading my way around this set path
again and again and again and again and again and again-
see? you didn’t read that. no one likes repetition.
no one likes things to be the same.
everything is most interesting at the beginning and at the end-
when it’s new and shiny. when it’s covered in ashes and fire,
the glamour of a supernova or the melancholy of a quiet death &
then, what matters is that–
i’m sorry i’ve written so many things that are not true.
—  it’s all an apology, for you//ast.

1. the psalms are long and our voices soft, yet when i crack the windows open at the long dark sky all i can hear is the world, and it is singing. it is praying. the LORD is listening and we are singing unto HIM and isn’t creation beautiful?

2. i am so very tired of Romans.

3. you’re right. it is lovely. the night is stars are pure and the air is clean and i found GABRIEL in my back garden weeding the gold from the silver and he sang ISAIAH to me until my soul returned. i invited him in for a drink but he could not stay. we cried together. i don’t know why. he was so quiet when he LEFT.

4. are you HERE yet?

5. GABRIEL returned today and he was FUCKING coked out. his eyes were eyes and his mouth was a mouth and he opened up his yawning ribs for me and cried “COME. COME ALL YOU WHO ARE THIRSTY. COME TO THE WATERS.”

6. i want to rewrite the world, MICHAEL. i want to cross out HIS name in the books, i want to tamp down the salt and the ash, i want to start fires until all swords are truly flaming and no eyes are truly burnt. we were promised milk and honey, but the lands are flowing with RED and FORGETTING and my mouth is dry of love.

7. we are never alone when we walk with GOD.

8. then why make us lonely?

This is a warning!

So I hate I have to make this post, but well, here it is.

Consider this post a first and fair warning in the future! I am not going to tolerate this behavior anymore no matter WHO you are in relation to me or the fandom! If people have a right to their screenshots and gifs from a game Ubisoft made, I have a right to my artwork, ideas, headcanons, and stories that I made on my own. I believe this is only fair.

I am normally very forgiving when it comes to people taking something I’ve already done and using it for themselves. I’ve been pretty forgiving when people crop my artwork (fanart mostly) and use it for profile pictures and what not with no credits, and I am a bit more forgiving when someone asks me to proof their story or offer them ideas, and when I do, I get no credit for the help—same can be said about original characters and such…

But this has caused me to basically roll over and be a walking mat by this point, and I am tired of it. My body, my heart especially,…it just hurts from the continued abuse. I’ve been getting so stressed and upset in the past few days that it makes me have severe panic attacks that make me ill.

This has happened all my life, and I try to urge it away as ‘no, it’s fine…’ in worry if I express my discontent, I look like a bad guy, but the more I do that, the more it keeps happening! I helped my ex-girlfriend with her griffon character and not once did she credit me for the help and ideas I gave her. I’ve helped flesh out canon/oc pairings before as well to friends and fans in private, and when the stories came to life or the pieces were drawn—again, no thanks on my part. I’ve ‘inspired’ pieces by others, and it causes me to have to say ‘hey, this looks familiar/similar to mine’ to have someone say ‘oh yeah, you inspired it’. Seriously? Is it so hard to put an ‘inspired by tag’ somewhere in the description…?

The most damning of any of these instances was when a Rule 34 website took my Sonic harem idea and published it with only MINOR changes on their website, and by minor, I mean severely minor. They changed the lead females because they couldn’t use one of the OCs I had, but there was a bidding war for the woman who was bound and naked before the men in question (and by the way, the naked and undressing part was done in a promotional piece I had done in the back of my gallery) and while another character won the bidding war, it was still bullshit that he bought her for the same amount that was in my story. Yes, it was a free piece, but they get paid by the visit given their adds, so no—technically, it wasn’t a free piece! Want the proof of him saying ‘oh yeah, read your works’? Here you go:

He even tries to excuse it saying ‘nobody noticed the similarities’. Well, no, my friends sure as hell did and so did I, and I was also a speck on the map in that fandom—so of course nobody knew who I was, but everybody knew this porn website! That was what was most infuriating! The fact he took from someone he didn’t think anybody would know or take a nod towards. He didn’t even credit me for any inspiration through the comic.

As I got into the AC fandom, holy shit, it just got worse. A lot of my headcanon/ what if/ how would (X) react to this/ got used into stories without my consent and even some Emmetts have been modeled a lot to look like a cookie cutter version of my own (though as far as I know, I think and hoped this stopped).

PLEASE, even when you ask for a question/ headcanon ask/ ect, that doesn’t mean free is free. You asked for my thoughts and opinion, and I gave them, so the nice thing to do is to credit me if you use them in the future! It is fine to be inspired by something, but the least you can do is credit the source.

Also, as far as Oreana and her story is concerned as we do have an Egyptian game coming up: she has been with me for years, and I will not tolerate stuff about her stolen from me. I want to rewrite her worlds and such to actually publish, and when you take from me and my original world(s), you’re being disrespectful! There are so many ways that an Egyptian action/ adventure/ love story can be written, and if you need help, then ASK. It is fine to ask for help, but don’t just pick apart somebody’s world and or outright steal with a nice little painting job on top. (Also: FYI…if it’s an Egyptian setting, even if AU, the characters need to be darker skinned unless you can explain why they are not. Oreana isn’t dark skinned because she’s ‘cursed’ and has been since birth—her brothers and father are darker skinned while her other parent is white.)

It is because of this blatant thieving that I’ve stopped writing and even doing art as much. I am SCARED to. I didn’t want to keep writing to The Clockwork Soldier because I do want to publish that story with different characters of my own creation. Why should I offer my thoughts down on paper for a fandom that is this horribly disrespectful? And what’s further sad is people screaming in fear of losing Jacob from the fandom, but…if you keep doing this to me, you will lose one more Jacob Frye fan who creates content for you all to enjoy.

SO, in the future, this is what is going to happen:

  • If I see something that is too similar to my idea(s) with no reasoning as to why that is so, I am going to approach you in private and ask you to change it or see if we cannot reach an understanding of sorts.

    • I would say that we could work together to reach a better compromise or better story, but if you’re going to take my stuff to begin with without reason, then I find that silly that I should offer my services.

  • If we cannot reach an understanding, or you refuse to do what I will politely ask of you, then I will report your blog and the post in question or the piece regardless of where it is to have it taken down—no warning. Your warning is me coming to you in private and talking to you from now on.

Also, as a side note—do NOT get furious and or upset about this if I come to you to talk! I am willing to sit down and talk like a reasonable, mature adult even if I too am super upset. I am not going to throw shit at you regardless of how I feel. I am not going to slander you and your blog publicly unless it is severe and needs to be addressed, and I feel I need more help in the situation to which I try not to do.

I understand mistakes can be made, and do acknowledge that I talk about these situations with friends to ask their opinion on if it’s too similar or not. When I get an outstanding yes vote, then I go to the people(s) responsible. It is not just me sitting here judging the circumstances solo.

I thank you all for your understanding and support, and to those that don’t support or understand this—that’s fine, but I probably don’t need you here. I hate to see you leave, but my health and sanity means more than your company.

~Oreana Galena

Water didn’t help. No amount of scrubbing or scalding would wash off the blood. For what seemed like ages he sat. Clawing at his skin where the stains had formed. They were long since washed away but he still saw them. The crimson color burned into his vision.

If tears fell, he didn’t feel them, and if cries etched past his irritated throat it was numb to them too. How dare he feel pain, his mind had convinced him. How could anything hurt compared to the screams he had heard? 

Noe avoided his companion. He wanted to leave, but he knew he couldn’t. He knew he had made a promise. After breaking so much, he had to keep just one…

His own life was like a waking nightmare. He still took care of things as he had always done. Numbly going through the motions out of sight. The house kept stocked, cleaned, anything he could do to help. As long as it didn’t involve seeing Mitsuhide…

When he was awake, he was a zombie. No rest to ever heal his wounds. The only thing he would occupy himself outside of chores, was on his small tablet. Searching for the ‘gateway to Altus in Tokyo’.

The only times he could approach was to take him to bed. The times that Noe no longer heard the clicking keys or movement. He would scoop the male up, as tenderly and caring as always and take him to bed. Someone in the house should get real sleep. It sure as hell wasn’t him.

Noe was exhausted. Shut eyes only made the scene replay again. More vividly than even when awake. When he did finally succumb it was to red eyes wet with tears. Curled up in the hall, finally passed out. 

The screams were louder in his restless sleep. He could hear them, though in the waking world it was himself that cried out. That begged for it to stop. For Mitsuhide to be alright.

Save the man from himself….

CunningCelt's 15 Days of Witchcraft Challenge: Pop Culture Edition

I love pop culture witchcraft, and the magic it inspires. A lot of my magic draws inspiration from witchy shows, movies, and fiction. This challenge is great for pop culture witches and everyone else: if you’re not a pop culture witch let yourself be inspired by pop culture and supernatural fiction. If you’re not interested in a particular type of magic listed, just skip that day. If you haven’t heard of some of the fiction mentioned, treat it as an opportunity to expose yourself to some great fantasy. Use this challenge to explore your spell writing abilities. Feel free to tag me in your posts, I want to see all your responses!

1. Write a spell based on or inspired by your favourite fairy tale.

2. Choose your favourite spell or spells from the TV show Charmed and rewrite it for real world application.

3. Write a dark, gothic-esque style spell inspired by Penny Dreadful.

4. Write a Lord of the Rings inspired spell about how to create and use the Light of Eärendil.

5. Write a ‘Protego’ protection spell from Harry Potter.

6. Write a spell to charm your shoes into 'ruby slipper’ talismans from The Wizard of Oz.

7. Write a spirit banishing spell and sigil like those used in Supernatural.

8. Write a spirit summoning spell like those used in Supernatural.

9. Write a glamour spell to hide your identity and intentions like the Evil Queen of Snow White.

10. Write a spell to see Wesen (spirits/fae/unseen beings); become like a Grimm.

11. Write a potion utilising the formula used in Jim Butcher’s The Dresden Files (described in this post: http://cunningcelt.tumblr.com/post/143987701145/potions-by-harry-dresden )

12. Write a full ritual to connect to the Elements in the style of Kate Forsyth’s The Witches Of Eileanan.

13. Create a spell and potion combination to help you experience past lives, like Ingrid and Freya Beauchamp from The Witches Of East End.

14. “One green eye, one blue…” Write a love spell like the one Sally Owens casts in Practical Magic. Note: write the spell to draw love and qualities into your life, NOT a spell to ensorcel a specific person into love.

15. Turn any meal into a spell in the style of Claire Waverly in Sarah Addison Allen’s Garden Spells.

This is what love does: It makes you want to rewrite the world. It makes you want to choose the characters, build the scenery, guide the plot. The person you love sits across from you, and you want to do everything in your power to make it possible, endlessly possible. And when it’s just the two of you, alone in a room, you can pretend that this is how it is, this is how it will be.
