seriously though i have no idea what's going on

okay but

Singer!Graves maneuvering this type of microphone

while either screaming into it or whispering?

His fingers are hovering over it, like he wants to cup it, while his eyes close and voice goes into a tenderly sweet tone.

His lips are practically touching the cold metal as he whispers into it.

Fans are going crazy. They would do anything to get that microphone.

He also tends to pose dramatically with the pole.

Bonus: Graves shamelessly ruts against the pole thing and he’s sure some brains got short circuited.

Bonus 2: Throw into the mix the super flustered fan Newt, who is always admiring beautiful things from afar, and who just happened to be squashed into the front row by Queenie. He wants to run away. He’s so close to his celebrity crush, he barely can keep himself on feet. His knees buckle from time to time though. He’s flushed a deep shade of red as he stares mesmerized at the stage, at Graves.

He barely registers the shove Queenie gives him before he’s catching the MICROPHONE and he raises his eyes shocked, and he sees Graves smirking and then he winks at Newt.

Newt faints.

Being in love with your mortal enemy is only acceptable when you’re under a spell.

Update: In the two and a half months or so since I read Carry On, my Word document of fanfiction is now just under 30,000 words long. … Though now that uni is back I probably won’t be writing as much (that said, I’ll probably think of some great new idea overnight that I can’t wait to start writing). Maybe I should write shorter fics. Anyway, here is 7.5k words of fluff.

Transcript of Joseph’s Cult Ending (DDADDS)

So I’ve been doing a lot of research into this “secret” Joseph ending, because quite honestly I wasn’t happy with not being able to have a satisfying ending with him (I wasn’t cool with him sleeping with me and playing with my feelings only to get back together with his wife after he’d assured me that they were separated, even though I do understand that it was probably the right thing for him to do for his children). Regardless, I wanted to see if there was actually another way this could’ve worked, and – well, let’s just say I was pretty shook at what I found, and the answer to my question is that no there is most certainly not a way this could’ve worked out between us, Joseph, because you’re a fuckin’ psycho. If you’d like to know what happens during the secret ending, read on. There are a lot of spoilers for the game, not just for Joseph’s path but for other characters, too.


IF YOU DON’T WANT TO KNOW WHAT HAPPENS BY UNLOCKING THIS ENDING DO NOT READ UNDER THE CUT. I DETAIL EVERYTHING THAT HAPPENS FOLLOWING THE ENDING OF JOSEPH’S THIRD DATE; I DO NOT EXPLAIN HOW TO GET TO THIS ENDING IN GAME, BECAUSE I DO NOT KNOW HOW TO DO THIS YET (though I do give some of my ideas about what you need to do to get there.)

I did a quick drabble for @krusca who shares wonderful art with us and deserves nice things.  

“We should get married,” Steve said, wearing a wide, goofy grin as he leaned his elbows on the table and wiped his hands with the napkin Tony had thrown his way.

“Because I make a mean manicotti?” Tony asked.  The espresso machine was brewing, making a low, whistling sound that made Clint cough something that sounded an awful lot like Pavlov whenever he heard it.  

“Because we’d be good together,” Steve replied, still beaming at Tony, who couldn’t help but return the smile, shaking his head as he did.  “We are good together.”

“What with all of our shared life experiences?” Tony retorted with a low huff of disbelief, then made a happy, humming noise when the espresso machine clicked off.  “Come on, old man.  The park thing with the flowers?  That was Lang’s idea, wasn’t it?”

“He wasn’t supposed to actually be on the flowers,” Steve muttered.

“That whole post-battle thing with the fire hydrant going off and it was all wet and very Notebook-y and, don’t get me wrong, I was this close to offering to build you the house of your dreams, but, you know, one of these days, some tabloid or gossip rag’s going to hear you, take you seriously and then you’ll have to make an honest man out of me,” Tony warned with what he meant as a leer, though his face felt tight, unnatural, like it didn’t quite want to follow through on what his brain was telling it to do and ended up caught halfway to something else entirely.

“I’m trying,” Steve told him, the grin dropping off his face.  It was theoretically possible he was actually listening to what Tony was saying, Tony figured, in the flash of seconds before the beatific smile was back, this time more practiced, though, the kind of smile that held a giant you-can-all-kiss-my-ass behind it.  Tony thought it might be his favorite.  Not that he…cataloged Steve’s smiles. Which would be weird.  And was something he was definitely not doing. “Maybe they will hear. I wouldn’t care.”

“Flattered as I am,” Tony began, taking a sip of his espresso and letting it roll around his tongue before swallowing.  Something flickered across Steve’s face, and he dropped his eyes down to his empty plate for a moment before raising them back to Tony.  “We can’t have your reputation suffering by association, Cap. Besides, I did defiling an American icon when I was sixteen and got to third base with Sandra Boswell on top of Dad’s roadster.  Please don’t look for deeper meaning in that.  It was close and wipeable.”

“Why would my reputation suffer?” Steve asked.  “You’re a great catch.  Smart. Funny.  Handsome.  Look at all you’ve done, not just for us, but with the Maria Stark Foundation. That thing at MIT.  The clean energy, intellicrops, the—“

“Pepper send you the PR brochure?” Tony snorted.  

“You’re a good man, Tony. Sorry.  I don’t mean to…make you uncomfortable,” Steve replied, a bit haltingly, frowning around the words.  

“Ah, Cap, don’t do that. With the…the kicked puppy face thing. You’re killing me,” Tony said as lightly as he could manage.  His chest was tight and his stomach was doing that swooping thing it did whenever Steve complimented him, which, come to think of it, was a lot lately.  Guy probably had it on one of his to-do lists. Say Something Nice About Tony. Check. “Wanna watch a movie?  Nothing romantic.  You might get ideas,” Tony laughed, coughing and wiping a hand over his mouth as he did because it sounded wrong.  Less like a laugh and more like…something that wasn’t a laugh at all.  “Something really disturbing and deeply unsettling, like, I don’t know, Alien or the one where the woman wants to screw the animated bee.”

“Okay, Tony,” Steve said, the smile back, though it didn’t quite reach his eyes, Tony noticed.

NCT 127 + Ten Reaction to: A Girl Joining The Group

@thekpophut hope you enjoy! ~

Edit: also @lol-i-have-know-idea ty for pointing out I forgot Ten lol!! I keep getting confused w all the members … I might need need to cut back on the no. I write for … >.< but ty, seriously!


Taeil: He’s super … awkward. He wants to be a loving big bro but isn’t good at expressing his emotions so he’s distant. He’s very loving though and gives good advice, you just need to approach him first. Won’t stop you doing what you want e.g going to a party. But he does warn you about not getting too drunk or going home with a stranger. And is willing to wait up and be your ride, if you need one. Also willing to help you entertainment wise, in any way he can. But like with your personal life, you need to approach him first.

Johnny: Acts like he’s an innocent big brother but secretly, just between you two, he’s the “cool” bro. He hooks you up with his hot friends and sneaks you alcohol if you’re of legal age. While the others may say “Oh that skirt is too short,” he’s the one who smuggles the skirt out so you pass by the others in jeans but change into it in the car on the way to the party. Oh, yeah about those parties … Any one that he dj’s, he invites you to (one again, only if you’re legal age). Johnny doesn’t shelter or coddle you. If you’re not practicing hard enough then he’ll definitely tell you off. And he’ll also slip you dental dams/condoms and warn you about safe sex too. There’s no nonsense with him haha.

Taeyong: Is warm and inviting. Makes sure to include you in all their gags and games, treating you like one of the boys but also … not. He includes you but treats you like a delicate flower, yelling at the others if they hit you with a ball or curse around you. He just wants to protect you, esp. as you face a lot of haters, being the only girl in the group.

Yuta: ”Oh great, another member. Just what NCT is lacking!” he jokes. It’s an antagonistic brother-sister relationship, where you act like enemies but he would fight anyone who hurt your feelings. Ok, maybe not fight, but he would definitely sass them out. On shows, he always says snappy remarks to your haters that leave the viewers in stitches.

Originally posted by nkmtos

Doyoung: Tries too hard to seem friendly and welcoming, to the point where it’s awkward. But once you get used to each other, he’s less awkward to talk to. Wants to be the one to help you fit in so if you form the strongest bond with him, he’ll be really chuffed.

“I already have a brother and now I have a sister,” he says fondly, whenever an interviewer asks about you.

Originally posted by doyoungce

Ten: Immediately calls you his “sister.” He’ll always drag you along to play games or cook, so you’re not bored or feeling excluded. He ensures that you fit in quickly. And hardly even notices that you’re a girl. He’s comfortable enough around you to even fart and not wash his hands lol

Jaehyun: May be a little flirtatious but only in a friendly way, to boost your confidence. He knows that SM would murder you both if there was a romantic relationship so his comments are strictly platonic, meant to encourage you.

“Don’t worry about the anti’s! You’re beautiful and talented. You make the rest of us look worthless ~”

Winwin: Takes super good care of you. Knows that being an idol requires hard work and as the only female, you’ll be under even worse scrutiny than the others. So can be a harsh critic of your dancing skills but when you practice hard and impress him, he’ll treat you to ice cream. It’s a very “firm but loving older brother” relationship.

Mark: Tries to act like you’re just another group member BUT YOU’RE NOT YOU’RE A GIRL OMG WHAT SHOULD HE DO??!?!?!?!? Will take some time to relax around you, since he’s overly conscious of the gender difference. But once he relaxes, he stops seeing you as a girl and more as a member of NCT.

Haechan: If you’re younger, he will take pleasure in teasing and annoying you. Pulling your hair, flicking your ear, making smart remarks about “Oh this move is too hard for a girl” or “Should we really say things like this in front of a weak girl?” But he’s only doing it to annoy you and not bc he actually believes that girls are worth less than boys.

Master List

Part 1 (all parts are linked)

The minute Sam and I touched, it was though a switch flipped inside me. Everything around me seemed to fade away slightly in comparison to him.  His hands gripped my arms as he backed me against my closed door.

All I could think about was my need for him.  Our lips met in a clash of tongues and mouths as he kissed me until I had to pull away so I could breathe.  “Need you Alpha.” I whispered.

Sam’s eyes darkened as his hands tangled in my hair.  I leaned my head to the side, exposing my neck to him.  His scent was making my head spin.  We were so wrapped up in each other that neither of us seemed concerned with the fact we were practically have sex in the hallway where anyone could see.

“Unlock the door, Y/N.”  Sam demanded.

My hands were shaking as I tried to fit the key into the lock.  As soon as I had the door open, I tugged his hand and we spilled into my apartment. 

“Help me out of this damn dress!” I begged. I felt like if I didn’t get him inside me in the next 2 minutes I was going to jump out of my skin. He stood behind me, yanking the zipper down as my dress pooled in a puddle at my feet.  I turned and kicked the offending garment away.

Sam’s large hands cupped my ass as he ground his pants covered erection into me.  Free of the confining dress, clad in only my panties and bra, I wrapped my legs tightly around his waist.  My pussy began to throb with the need to be filled, and slick poured out of me. I bit back a moan. 

Sam reached out a long arm and cleared the top of the table off with one swipe of his hand.  Papers, brushes and other art supplies tumbled to the floor, and I heard the sound of glass breaking.  Even that didn’t pierce the haze of desire that was consuming me.  We weren’t even going to make it to the bedroom.

It’s a Matter of Taste

This is my submission for the third prompt of the Olicity Hiatus Fic-a-thon - Taste. Oliver asks Felicity to pretend to be his girlfriend for Queen Consolidate Board retreat. Also available on AO3.  Thanks to @almondblossomme for proofing!


He could do this, he could totally do this. Oliver paced back and forth in his office. He had no fear staring down the bad guys as the Arrow but asking Felicity Smoak to be his fake girlfriend for a cottage weekend, THAT terrified him.

“So, when are going to tell me what’s going on?” Felicity stood in the door of his office. “Oliver, I could see you pacing for the last five minutes. Your walls are glass.”

“I have to ask you something and you aren’t going to like it.”

“Okay.”

“So, if you could not use your loud voice I’d appreciate it.”

Amortentia

“There’s a point where you know that something you enjoy is hurting you in the long run, and you do it anyway, because it feels good in the moment.”

Chapter 2/9 (AO3 or FFnet)

(Awesome aesthetic is by @jadepresley, click the title to read from the beginning)

Summary:

A year-long experiment in modifying and neutralising Amortentia has unforeseen side-effects for Harry.

Excerpt:

“Piss off, Potter.”

Harry jerked backwards. He’d arrived at Malfoy’s table without even realising.

“Seriously?” Malfoy drawled, sounding annoyed. “Stop staring at me like some stupid first year. Say your piece and then sod off. I have an essay to write.”

Harry scowled, annoyed that Malfoy wasn’t even looking at him while he talked to him.

“I don’t want to crucio you.”

Malfoy looked up, his quill halfway to his inkpot. He looked surprised, and then his brows furrowed together as his gaze darted over Harry’s face, as if he was looking for clues that he was lying.

“I mean it, Malfoy,” Harry said, glad that his voice was firm, even though he had no idea what to say. “I may hate you, but not that much.”

Malfoy put his quill down. “You have an interesting way of showing it.”

“Did you seriously think I hated you enough to do that?”

Malfoy’s expression was unreadable, and Harry tried not to fidget. He didn’t like talking to him like that. He felt restless, and didn’t know where to look. He didn’t want to start a fight, since he wanted Malfoy to know he wasn’t going to curse him without provocation, and definitely not with an Unforgivable. At the same time, he wanted a fight. Fighting was so easy. It kept him at a distance, and that was all Harry knew how to deal with. That was probably why he was having such a hard time living in the same dorm as him. It was too close, he was seeing sides of Malfoy he hadn’t before. He didn’t like it. Everything was easier when Malfoy was still that same nasty bastard he’d always been.

“Honestly? I don’t know,” Malfoy said, sounding disturbingly honest. “Sometimes you get this look in your eyes, and I check to see where your wand is.”

Harry looked away, feeling sick.

“That’s not just you though,” Malfoy said, sounding regretful. Harry looked back to catch Malfoy lowering his hand, as if he’d been about to touch him. “I got used to checking who had a wand in their hands when they were angry. It’s a habit now.”

“I’m not like them!” Harry hissed, horrified and insulted.

Malfoy stared at him for a few moments, and Harry wanted to turn and walk away, but found himself trapped by that look.

“It’s not nice, is it?” Malfoy said quietly. “Being compared to them.”

Harry felt sick and angry again. “I was never one of them!”

Malfoy looked away again. “No. I realise comparisons are easier for someone who was one.” He touched his left arm for a moment, then picked up his quill again. “So you won’t crucio me, good to know. I still have an essay to write, now sod off.”

“You really don’t make civility an inviting option, you know.”

Malfoy chuckled. “You don’t give me a real chance.”

polydactyl-orion  asked:

Consider this ask as a request to get that rant on Roadside Attraction STARTED!

Hoo boy. 

Okay, first of all, I sincerely apologize for leaving this unanswered so long. Things…happened. 

Disclaimer: I haven’t watched Roadside Attraction in a while so I might be slightly misremembering some of it. (It’d probably be a good idea to rewatch it first, but honestly just writing all this has got me riled up enough already. (look emotions are hard okay)

Disclaimer 2: I critique because I love, I swear. 

So when it comes down to it, I guess my problems with RA basically boil down to two big things:

1. The overall ‘message’ and how it treats the characters.

2. The weirdness of it existing at that point in the show in the first place.

First things first: look, don’t get me wrong, I’m all for media messages about not being a skeevy jerk and treating women as objects, but the way it was done in this episode was, honestly, just…weird. It basically introduces a character trait for Dipper (and, to a lesser extent, Stan; I mean I know Stan is…Stan, but did anyone really get ‘sleazy pickup artist’ as the vibe from any of his interactions with women that we saw before this episode?) that he was never shown to remotely have before or after (though admittedly there’s not a lot of ‘after’ to begin with), just so he could be taught a lesson about it that he never should have needed in the first place. 

Dipper’s problem has always been that’s he’s obsessed with one girl, and he certainly got plenty of embarrassment and woe out of that general experience, but ultimately that was good for him: he loosened up (somewhat), became more understanding and accepting of Wendy’s autonomy, and moved towards being able to deal with rejection while still being friends with her. That’s a satisfying arc and it makes no sense to me that they would suddenly partway reverse it and then use that as a reason to try and take Dipper down this weird incredibly short character arc that he didn’t need.

Is it realistic that you don’t just immediately get over someone even if intellectually accept that you’re not going to be together? Absolutely. But frankly, this is a weirdass time for Gravity Falls to be invoking realism. And regardless, realism does not automatically make for a better story, especially when that story has to be told in 22 minute intervals.

So it’s already weird that the show is portraying Dipper that way, but then what he does is really not all that heinous to begin with. The thing is, Stan is right. Dipper does need practice talking to-well, everyone, really, but especially girls. For God’s sake, the poor guy needed a massively oversized list, a bunch of clones, and a Rube Goldberg-esque plot just to ask Wendy to dance with him, a task he ultimately failed at anyway. (Which, honestly, even aside from intent, makes the whole idea of him successfully managing to actually lead any girls on to any degree pretty dang unbelievable.) And that’s really all he does with any of them, is talk. He doesn’t promise them anything except maybe to stay in touch, which we don’t really have any evidence he wasn’t planning on doing. Hell, even Stan, for all that we’re supposed to see his behavior as Not Good (which, to be fair, it usually is) doesn’t really do anything more than flirt with an apparently receptive woman and then take a walk with her, which is honestly way more honorable than most of Stan’s interactions with people. We’ve certainly seen him treat people way worse than that without getting condemned for it.

And then there’s the whole thing with Candy, which is…really frustrating. She puts Dipper in a situation he’s very, very obviously not comfortable with, demands something of him he never gave her an indication that he was interested in, and then when she doesn’t get what she wants…he has to apologize to her? By ‘admitting’ that he was being an idiot? What? 

Like, I know they were going for ‘don’t be a pickup artist’, basically, but what it came off as was more like ‘never interact with women because if you do they’ll immediately start acting like you’re in a relationship with them and expect you to act the same way and sometimes they might do that even if you don’t interact with them (also sometimes they might turn out to be spider women who will eat you)’. 

Basically, any time you set out to give the message ‘treat women with respect’ and instead wind up with ‘women are strange, irrational and sometimes horrifying’, I think you’ve really got to step back and reconsider things for a minute. 

But what’s especially weird to me is the contrast between this and the way the show treats Mabel’s behavior. Mabel’s been spending pretty much the whole show doing what this episode punishes Dipper for doing. We see her hitting on three boys in rapid succession within the first ten minutes of the show, her desire for a relationship and rather aggressive pursuit of that is the formation of a lot of plots during the show, and she’s only called on it when it gets to the point of hurting her friendships or literally imprisoning boys in her room.

I mean, I’m not trying to pick on Mabel here, or say that the show should have been calling her on that except when it got extreme (like, say, literally imprisoning boys in her room), at which point the show did call her on it. But it’s weird to me that the show then goes out of its way to condemn Dipper for doing basically the same thing except to a lesser degree. I guess you could argue that Mabel was looking for a relationship and Dipper was looking for ‘practice’, but that still doesn’t really work for me; in both instances they have a goal in mind for which the specific other person involved is basically a variable. Why is Mabel wanting an Epic Summer Romance with more or less any boy worse than Dipper wanting to just talk to more or less any girl? And at any rate, Dipper’s attitude in RA hardly seems any worse towards the girls than the attitude Mabel, Grenda and Candy went into the Northwest party with towards the boys, but we’re supposed to take one as being terrible and the other as being perfectly normal girl behavior. 

So yeah, there’s that. Now, part two. (Still with me?)

The pacing. This episode makes absolutely no sense to me where it is. You spend 3/4s of the show building up to this big reveal that completely alters the atmosphere, plot, and character dynamics, and now you have all of five episodes to explore all the ramifications of that while ramping up the tension towards the big finale…why would you make one of those a filler episode that has no impact on the plot at all and is so disconnected to anything that it could have been stuck pretty much anywhere else in the show without next to no changes? 

Like, okay, I’ll admit, part of why I don’t like this episode is because it doesn’t have Ford in it. And hey, that’s a personal thing. But it’s not just about me wanting MOAR FORD. The thing is, regardless of whether you like him or loathe him or whatever, Ford is, objectively, an incredibly important character. He’s the catalyst for the central plot and driving mystery of the show and the principle catalyst for the oncoming confrontation, his appearance changes pretty much everything that we took for granted about the show before, and just by existing he has a huge impact directly on Stan and Dipper and indirectly on Mabel (in that his interactions with Dipper in turn impact Mabel’s relationship with him). And, again, you have five episodes to explore all this. In one of them Ford’s barely there at all and then in this one he doesn’t even get mentioned. We don’t even get an explanation for why he’s suddenly absent. (I know we do in the Journal, but not in the show itself.) I just…that doesn’t make any sense to me. I mean, maybe I’m showing favoritism here, but-no offense to Candy-I really don’t get why she gets more character focus in this episode than, y’know. The long-lost close family member with massive unresolved issues and a huge amount of secrets. 

And it doesn’t make any sense to me to have a light-hearted filler episode with nothing to do with the plot so very close to the finale when the tension is so high and the last episode literally ended with a very ominous threat. It certainly doesn’t make sense in plot terms that they spent so much time last episode working to protect the Shack so they had a sanctuary from Bill, and then everyone runs away from the Shack. I just. What.

And, this is a lesser point, but it doesn’t really make sense to me for them to leave Gravity Falls itself at that point in the show. Just, sure, we know weird stuff exists in plenty of other places, but there’s a lot of focus on there being something especially weird and significant about Gravity Falls specifically. And that’s something that gets really dialed up in this last part of the show-Ford specifically seeking the town out to study, the significance of the Mystery Shack and all its secrets, the connection Bill has to the area, the crashed UFO, and of course it all builds up to a big plot point in the finale that Bill’s confined to Gravity Falls. But then right smack in the middle of all that we briefly detour to some pretty much unrelated location for…what reason? It’s like MYSTERY OF GRAVITY FALLS  MYSTERY OF GRAVITY FALLS  MYSTERY OF GRAVITY FALLS oh by the way there’s some spider people over here too MYSTERY OF GRAVITY FALLS. It’s not a huge deal but it feels weird to me, especially since the show had hardly been going on so long that that they had worn out the setting. 

I know I’m committing the great sin of claiming to know better than the writers, but since we’ve come this far anyway, you know what I think would have worked better than Roadside Attraction?

You’ve already got this idea of the other tourist trap owners annually pranking Stan, so why not just go with that? Have them come to him like they apparently usually do. That way:

-You can keep the focus on Gravity Falls and all the plot points therein.

-You don’t have the problem of everyone inexplicably leaving their sanctuary; in fact, that adds to the plot, because now they have even more motivation to protect the Mystery Shack.

-You’ve got a lot of opportunity for character interplay as the family has to deal with all this (imagine the opportunity for conflict between Ford and Stan over the house, and how much you could build up the oncoming tension of Stan having to leave the Shack by showing how much he had really made it his home over the years).

-You can still hint at the existence of weirdness outside Gravity Falls without taking the focus away from it.

-You could expand on Stan’s past a little-because God knows we all wanted it-by referencing what was going on with him and these other rivals for all these years, and show a bit more about how the Shack actually operates as a tourist trap, which I, at least, would have liked to see.

-You could continue the ongoing character arc of Dipper’s relationship with Ford and how that was impacting his relationship with Mabel, instead of dropping it for something completely out of the blue.

-You could still have a bit of a breather episode before the finale (since that was evidently the reason we got this one here in the first place) without having to completely drop the plot and derail all the building tension to do so. 

-Tell me you wouldn’t want to see a full-scale Pines family prank war unleashed, because I sure as hell would

But anyway, in conclusion:

I don’t like Roadside Attraction much.

I’ll be honest, I do not get what are these peoples deal but they seem to always get on the bad side of everyone and they can get to this very contrarian personality from 4chan /v/ so I’ll just take that a hint to making a list of them, they aren’t fascists by any means, crypto-fascists at the least, but they often gobble up the worst of people from this website and have probably been co-opted by fascists multiple time because of their apatheticness and coyness, the whole “I’m not a SJW! I don’t like protesters, fighting for something is dumb!” kind, shit they aren’t even probably right-wingers so this is a very special blocklist because I keep seeing them on tumblr whenever something bad happens, in fact i see so many fascists on this site only follow these people, so it’s probably better to block them to cut off their social rings immediately. 

–The list that has probably already been made once–

moontouched-moogle - Not much interesting to talk about here they’re just this hive mind for /v/ people. They kind of helped me build this list a bit. 

thefeelofavideogame - This guy never catches a break of not minding their own business and can’t help but feel cynical about anything but just ‘vidya’

nentindo - This one deserves a special mention because they’re 15 years old so it’s better to just block them and ignore them in advance rather then let them act elitist, i mean jeez kid you’re 15 you BARELY experienced life yet. Like really this amount of them surrounding themselves by adults that don’t wish them the best is an unhealthy obsession for them at it is. 

inkerton-kun - Dontcha hate when a porn artist has to have a ‘personality’

steven-universe-official - Kind of like the grand papi of this gang, I don’t even need to tell people to block them because I think about everyone does already due them sending their weird combination of anti-feminist fans around sending hate to anyone that would do criticism against their shitty attitude, technically in the recent years they kind of toned down on going around spewing bullshit and being THE uncle tom but it’s good to double check

dream-cassette - Oh this one I’ve heard of the most! Used to make child porn by the name of hoshime, in the name of rule 34, along the lines she deleted her original blog because she believed the obviously fake “down with cis” situation was the biggest EXAMPLE OF BIGOTRY in the world and the not absurd at all rival towards inequality (ignoring how it works systematically) and ever since then she’s been hanging out with the anti-sjws. 

thathomestar - I think they used to be a 100% gamergater but then again almost everyone here on this list was at one point. They still have that suspicious aura of “all the misery in the world is the left-wing’s fault for fighting back against their human rights being removed rather than just submitting!”. Says everything that is politically incorrect is just a joke, might be just a weird case of /pol/’s law (haha, get it?)

mr-cappadocia - Also an infamous gamergater, they sorta hold a grudge so much against social justice they end up sounding like they’re high on sherm. You know those try-hards that sound REALLY hard to sound politically incorrect? Yep! They sound like that. I also recommend blocking leopirate too as they are also a hotspot for gamergaters. Both are pretty terrible Islamophobic people. 

takashi0 - The OG Anti-SJW Brony of Tumblr! What a title. 

shitpost-senpai - I don’t even know why this guy’s on this list they’re just a 100% obvious fascist to the point they won’t stop being antisemitic about everything but hey, I guess because they like anime and metal gear rising that’s enough for them to fit in this blocklist… They’re also constantly being reblogging by this social ring of people and could just be the reason why a sum of people don’t trust them. 

maoh - They hate it when people fight back against oppression in general, the old cuck-like mentality of “No, don’t do anything, don’t fight back and die and it will be a win!” without knowing that peaceful protest holds no consequence and allows fascists to do anything they want to do at any time while removing human rights. They’re very petty about god damn children rather than just let them be too. What kind of an adult is this? Kind of funny that they changed their description recently from “I dislike the left-wing of tumblr” to “zero tolerance for faux morality and art censorship”, dude got some brand new codewords to pass off “I hate criticism” and “I’m a nazi sympathizer cuck and I’ve been brainwashed by the enemy to say that violent dynamics, no matter how history shows the story otherwise, is ineffective in justice and is villainous, anyways let me just frantically love an anime where they beat someone up”. It’s basic praxis and how the world works! 

shameshack - Ey! the-cringe-channel, known for producing their own cringe content because for some odd reason they keep ignoring the academic values of things and brush ofF everything in the world as mindless paranoia but probably aren’t a very smart person themselves and would rather waste their life making fun of kids and fueling the quickly made anti-sjw blogs on this website that all have urls like “tumblr-is-dumb-because-i-hate-minorities”, out of everyone who acts coy about why people dislike them, this one acts the most coy out of them all, what a malicious kind of guy. I really don’t know if they legit don’t get how things work in the real world because they take silly things seriously and serious things as if they were silly. Have you ever tried living life once where you have to don’t have to keep insecurely looking down on others that are just harmless oddities to fuel your ego or what?

–End Of List– 

Just copy and paste each url onto your blocklist if you wanna. 

Again I repeat these guys aren’t “fascists” and will deny they’re “anti-sjw” (Even though they don’t do anything to show for it besides say “Oh don’t worry we make fun of anti-sjws too! But we sound exactly like them when we go against our vague idea of social justice”), but fascists and crypto-fascists always seem to be around these people because they act coy about it all the time for the sake of being contrarians. They don’t want to care about them being followed by neo-nazis, just the power of having many followers that come straight from 4chan’s /v/! Almost the same as sympathizers.  

It’s the same odd link towards people who take video games and substancless anime too seriously and… Neo-Nazis, seriously what’s up with that? Anyways be careful when you criticize anime or them and don’t have them checked! 

Special mentions: KanColle fans I guess? Moe anime attracts a lot, and I guess that’s what happens when a medium genre is 100% bottom feeders towards substanceless girls just being cute, blogs with gray backgrounds, the nihilists that blog about trump jokes “ironically” (poe’s law), youtube celebrities, it’s more about ethics in games journalism and not objective game design. It’s not like they can’t be analytical ABOUT EVERYTHING right. Like how video game game design isn’t the only analytical theory in the world to take into consideration when criticizing media. Why is it always the gamers? 

Won’t say it again! Act coy about it all you want but take the loss because you guys have negative connotations and never really worked on it. 

This isn’t a “Reach” like a lot of you guys keep blaming it to be one or just belittle it as just “discourse” (the most thrown around word ever), the fact is just that you simply won’t accept the weight of your actions by either doing bullshit yourselves or allowing fascists to co-op your communities because you guys aren’t actively critical at all despite your contrarian image. 

Anyways this blog’s been moving slow (Which is good! Unless they’ve just been more secretive) to the point I gotta make a list out of these infamous dudes that i’m pretty sure everyone on tumblr already blocks or at least is suspicious about the people who reblog from them so i’m gonna go jack off to hentai rather than cowardly reblog ecchi to my blog to remind people I do indeed jack off to anime have no mistake about it. 

A Life Sentence

Prompt by anonymous on tumblr: I think it could be cute if you wrote about them having a conversation soon after he regains his princely form, where they each talk about what they were thinking of each other and the circumstances when certain key moments in the story happened, and how each was so concerned for the other but also kind of wondering what on earth the other was thinking, etc. Haha, I’m sorry, I’m not expressing myself very clearly, but if you want you could try to do something with that…?  

A/N: Thank you, dear Anon! Sorry it took me awhile to finally write this. I so appreciate this prompt. I’m not sure if this is quite what you had in mind, but I hope you like the tangential path where my muse led me. Enjoy!

Belle finds him in the library…their library.

He’s leaning back in his usual reading chair, his feet unceremoniously propped atop the desk in front of him, as he studiously pores over one of the larger books in the collection that he’s determined to finish.

She has to bite her bottom lip to keep herself from giggling at that wonderfully adorable little furrow between his eyebrows already in place. He’s so deep in concentration, completely oblivious to her presence as she tip-toes a little closer. Like the morning she found him in the rose garden reading about King Arthur, it’s easy and natural to be playful with him. And lately, particularly during quieter moments like this, he seems almost childlike, so full of wonder and open to a world he’s been isolated from for too long.

She understands that yearning completely.

I’m Bananas For You

A/N: My heart is broken & my head is spinning from last night’s events in Las Vegas. Country music is my safe haven & my happy place. That being said, I feel like we could all use a little pick me up today, so here’s some fluff. I love you all. My inbox/messages are always open. xx Morg

PS - I used this prompt list. There’s tons of prompts in my ask but they’re all the same and/or cliche and i’m sometimes I’m just not feelin them (sorry fam). This one was “It was all me, by the way.” and idk about you but i pictured Beca saying it the second I read it. SO uh yeah have fun.

PSS - i also just realized AFTER FINISHING THIS that I already have a fic that is very similar but WHO CARES I WRITE WHAT I WANT OKAY 

Beca Mitchell liked to consider herself a closet romantic. She would deny every instance when interrogated, but the second it came to Chloe she would drop everything to make her wife swoon. To not only Chloe’s, but pretty much everyone’s surprise, the brunette got pretty creative when it came to throwing the redhead off guard romantically. To which, of course, Beca would reply, “always the tone of surprise…” and then insist that Chloe kiss her and rub her feet. 

Chloe’s day at work had been eventful to say the least. Between the usual kid eating paste under a table in the back of the room to someone flicking boogers at someone else, things were pretty normal for the most part. But it wasn’t that part that threw her off. It was the little post it notes she found all over her classroom when she got there. 

Not to mention that none of them were handwritten so that wouldn’t help to narrow it down by handwriting. The first one was on her mailbox in the teachers lounge. 

1. today might suck, but don’t let it.

Hello there, dear writerly friends!

Over the last year I’ve gotten hundreds (if not thousands :0) of writers sending me their story-ideas and asking me if they’re ‘good.’ Now, instead of continuously copy-pasting the same response, or worse ignoring them, I decided to format my thoughts into a nice-and-simple test c;

Now, since I have a feeling some of you still have questions, let me post here my answers to the responses I’ve gotten from this test:

Is this seriously the test?

Yes. Just 3 questions. Not more. Not less.

You’re saying that if I find the story-idea 'fun’ to write, then I’m good to go?

Yes.

Even though you know nothing about my story-idea?

Nope. I don’t care what your story is actually about. All I care about is that you have fun. Seriously. If you have fun writing it, the reader will be able to tell. It’s easier to be passionate about something you enjoy. On the flip-side, have you ever read anything that was written by someone who clearly was not having ANY fun? Ask your English teacher if they can tell when someone actually enjoyed writing an essay. You may be able to half-ass a cake and make something edible, but you can’t half-ass a book and expect people to like it.

Even though I think this story idea is similar to that of another book?

Jorge Luis Borges said that there are only 4 types of stories: a love story between two people, a love story between three people, the struggle for power, and the journey. The truth is that, really, the idea for the story does not matter. It’s not what you say, but how you it say that matters. And, I don’t know about you, but I think it’s easier to get your voice across when you’re actually enjoying the process of writing c;

How do I make my story-idea more 'fun’?

Be honest with yourself. Write about what excites you. You don’t have to write about anything you don’t care about, or meet some sort of imaginary guidelines. Writing is art. Write about anything you want. Additionally, you may want to checkout my (Strange) Guide to Planning Your Novel, it’s built on this entire philosophy.

I hope this helps! I have gotten this question so many times, I thought it would be best to just put my answer out there for all of you  c;

harry as a health and lifestyle vlogger who used to work at a bakery before he got really into fitness. now he makes videos on living well with like pilates workouts for bad backs, juice cleanses, his own boot camp, how his ninja bullet blender changed his life, reimagining desserts in healthy ways and shit. he has a huge following of grandmas who just love him, esp bc he makes special how to and exercises videos for them.

nick is a youtube comedian and does reviews of music and film and pop culture things on his channel, sometimes he brings other people in to chat about stuff and reminisce kind of like vh1’s i love the 80s/90s. they have mutual vlogger friends and meet at a party at alexa’s (fashion vlogger, insta model lol) and kind of…. hit of off but don’t? like for instance nick says that he always intends to eat healthy but there are like 800 calories in five almonds or whatever, so like? no? and harry stares at him for a solid 45 seconds without words and then they spend the rest of the night bickering about health food and tree nuts and “the importance of healthy fats, nicholas.” nick is convinced harry hated him but he texts nick three days later at 6:45 in the morning like “i enjoyed telling you about how much i love nuts the other night” and nick drops his phone on his face.

laterrrr nick has harry on a vid with him where he asks him what various normal pop culture things are and harry has no fucking clue about anything that’s not classic/indie music or health related so he has to say what he thinks they are and it’s just… a tragic mess and goes viral. harry posts videos of nick trying to pilates and yoga routines and falling on his ass while complaining literally the entire time even though he runs every day and is incredibly fit as a tutorial on what not to do when you’re exercising and trying to center yourself and destress. they go from strangers to best friends instantly and eventually realize that they’ve been seriously dating for literal years and had no idea and then they get married thank

Happy Birthday? - Kim Jonghyun Requested Scenario

@babytellmewhatuneed (your account doesn’t show up I’m so sorry)

Genre: fluffed

Message?: Jonghyun

_________________________

“I was so surprised, seriously!” Minki said as we watched the video of Jonghyun surprising him for his birthday last year.

“I think we should surprise him,” I said, “I mean, we’ve got to think quickly though because it is tomorrow.”

“So what should we do?” Minki asked.

I shrugged. “Is there Produce 101 filming tomorrow?”

“A bit, but it will only go on until lunch time,” Minki said, “we’re all free after then. Knowing Jonghyun though he’ll probably be practising something.”

“That’s good then!” I exclaimed, “because then we can surprise him!”

“With what?” Minki asked, looking at me doubtingly.

I sighed, “I have no idea.”

“I know!” Minhyun exclaimed, “we could fly Aron over from America and—”

“Minhyun we have a day,” Minki said.

Minhyun sighed, sitting back down.

“First things first there needs to be a cake,” Minki said, “but what flavour?”

“Vanilla and chocolate marble cake!” I exclaimed, “we made that together!”

Minhyun chuckled, “okay, okay, chocolate and vanilla marble cake—”

“With sprinkles,” I added.

“—with sprinkles,” Minhyun continued.

Suddenly Minki stopped, his mouth dropping open.

“I have a great idea,” he said, emphasising the word ‘great’.

“What?” I asked.

“What is it?!” Minhyun asked.

“Right okay, so all the Produce 101 boys usually eat lunch together, yeah?” Minki said, making sure we were following his crazy plan before leaning in and explaining the rest to us.

This is gonna be great.

So the next morning I awoke, my heart pounding. If this goes wrong it could be really awkward. But if it goes right it would be great!

At about 12:00pm I arrived at the Produce 101 training studio where there was a mass sound coming from the kitchen. I waited outside the door until Minki noticed me and excused himself, coming to greet me.

He laughed, “I’m so excited! Right. Everything ready? You know what you’re doing?”

I nodded.

“Where’s the cake?” he asked, suddenly panicked.

“Staff have got it,” I said, “you told Dongho right?”

He nodded, “oh! By the way, there’s a bigger audience now. Trainers AND BoA are there. But don’t worry, no cameras.”

He winked at me before walking back in, leaving me in a state of panic, waiting for the text to arrive.

Suddenly my phone buzzed, a took a deep breath and a member of staff opened the door for me.

I chuckled slightly before regaining my straight face and running in, bursting out in rage at Jonghyun who looked at me in an awkward, confused expression that made it so hard not to laugh.

After a couple of seconds, just as planned, Dongho stood up and dragged me away while I screamed and kicked.

Once we were out the door I kept shouting random curse words at him to keep it ‘alive’ as we slowly lit the cake. I looked and Dongho, all while screaming, and he laughed, putting his finger to his lips. I laughed quietly, quickly shutting up.

“Happy birthday to you!” I shouted, running back in, holding the door open for Dongho who was holding the cake.

“Happy birthday to you! Happy birtnday dear Jonghyun!” I shouted, “happy birthday to you!”

Dongho held the cake in front of Jonghyun as he blew out the candles, a slightly confused look on his face.

Once he’d blown out the candles Dongho put the cake on the table as the rest of the room cheered.

Jonghyun stood up, grabbing my arms and shaking me lightly.

“You scared me so much!” he exclaimed, making everyone laugh, “ahhh!”

I laughed as he shook his head and looked at the cake. Suddenly I grabbed the back of his head and pushed him forward, his face slamming into the icing.

The trainers and boys all laughed as Jonghyun came back up, vanilla icing all over his face.

The boys all laughed, cheering before the staff came round and gave everyone cake.

Jonghyun walked over to me, who had run away, shaking his head.

“Happy birthday?” I giggled, having it come out more like a question as I swiped a finger through the icing on his face and he kissed my lips, rubbing the icing into me.

Weight of the World

This is a one shot i wrote due to the huge amounts of Rivamika I’ve been exposed to. Its pure angst and pain too.

Levi can’t remember the exact day he realised he was in love with Mikasa. Seriously, he has no idea what is worse; this or the fact that he let himself experience and go through all this process.

Up to now he had never even though about settling down and having a family, but everytime he sees her face he can only think about how many children he’d like to have.

Everytime he closes his eyes she’s there. And she doesn’t whip over that fucking mindless brat who had lived a cursed life. No. She’s there for and with him, standing in the sand, in the very place the ocean water hits her pale feet, over and over again with rage because the wind is so strong. It took a while for him to realise which way the wind had to blow for the waves to vanish or to appear. Nonetheless, if one could consider her a magnificent beauty, when his eyes were closed, she looked like a goddess.


But just like Eren was cursed to die, so is Levi cursed to stay alive and suffer. He can’t remember a time when he didn’t suffer amd he definitely can’t remember ever suffering from the stupid void feeling other shitty human beings like to call love. Never has he ever believed one of these disgusting lies people said to fool themselves with. For him love is pure and golden and now that he’s had the chance to feel it, he can say he’s blessed.

But it’s either cursed or blessed. And although he can really understand why all the people are trying to fool their own selves, he has absolutely no idea what to do or say about himself. There is something sweet in the bitterness of knowing he is never going to receive the love he wants from Mikasa, amd it feels truly beautiful to have fallen for a rough diamond, like her but it’s also truly painful to watch as his hands are filled with mud and bleeding cuts, while he’s desperately seeking for her love.

It feels even worse that all she can think about is Eren. Levi is damn aware that if she could, she’d literally be with him in the afterlife -if this shit existed- to watch over him. She is obsessed with the suicidal brat, to the point it didn’t matter if he is dead or alive. She has driven her self to a point of no returning with all this, but all Levi cares about is that Eren’s mere thought of existence, and the lack of it included, has scarred her, bruised her heart and darkened her soul.

Such thoughts are always in his mind, as it never seems to get rid of her. The walk he’s taking in the corridors has been long, his candle is at the point of extinction, but he doesn’t care. He doesn’t even know why he’s doing this to himself; walking up and down the corridors of the abandoned headquarters, so he can watch over her. To listen to her voice.


There is no doubt that Mikasa would never want to have his kids. She wouldn’t enjoy seeing so many black haired heads and probably she’d wish some of them would resemble her one and only Eren. And with their genes, this would never happen. Even if these kids would look so handsome that mother nature would bow before them, Levi was sure that she’d never consider any one of them worthy to be her kid. Levi thinks she could always try to fool herself too. His hair isn’t as black as hers, it has a light brown side to its blackness, when hers is completely black and his eyes are both blue and grey all the while hers are so dark, that no one could possibly tell the actual color. They could easily make children that looked like they were pure Ackerman blooded, but Levi’s dreaming like a crazied teenager. And he’s way too old to be thinking like a teenager.

Nevertheless, he stands alone, in the dark hallway, hearing the muffled sobs that come out of her mouth. His heart is throbbing for her. That once strong woman, who he had spent nights thinking about ever since her cadet days, now being eaten by her own demons.


And he knows that he can bear thousand knives planted on his body, bloody hands that his brain can’t even control anymore and a strong amount of dirty mud covering his body, only if she is to say she’s going to love him back. Not because he wants her to suffer like he is now, but because if he can take the weight of the world in his shoulders, he can take all her pain away and learn to live with it for her to be alright. For her to lock her plump lips with his and just say those precious words.

I love you
