should this be tagged with anything else

How to Tell if Somebody is fandom!old

- They use terms like lemons, smut, or UST to talk about the genre of their fic.

- They have squicks.

- They want you to have squicks. Which isn’t to say that they want to squick you, just that it’s a useful term.

- *glomps*

- They leave long comments on everything the read. Possibly not in the tags. They might do something super bizarre like send a message or put their thoughts on the end of your post.

- They write disclaimers on everything. Or on literally anything, since nobody does that anymore.

- They write about orbs, and those orbs are cerulean.

- Or literally anything else is cerulean. Cerulean is an outdated term. I’m calling it.

- The tongues of their characters are still battling for dominance, even though it’s 2017, and really a winner should have been declared by now.

- They have a fear of Mary Sue.

- Characters in their modern AU are chatting on AIM instant messenger, and calling each other on landlines. There are references to Ceiling Cat, because the characters are hip to meme culture. This AU is ~modern~ after all.

- Their fic is interlaced with slightly relevant song lyrics (disclaimer, they didn’t write the song.)

- They don’t do any of above, because they are New Fandom Savy, but they write or reblog nostalgic posts about these things.

- They had a livejournal.

- They still have a livejournal.

- They ended up on tumblr only after getting into a new fandom, searching livejournal for content and fellow fans, and suddenly coming to the startling realization that livejournal has become a barren wasteland of tumbleweeds and chirping crickets.

- They miss their geocities site.

- They wrote fic for the X-Files while the original nine seasons were still airing.

- Bonus, they wrote fic for the original Star Trek and published it in a zine, before the Internet was a thing. That’s like super mega fandom old.

- They might be less inclined to call themselves “trash”, but they are totally out there, reading all the things.

Fandom Fic Rec Days

The Fandom Fic Rec Days are back!

It is easy to make people look at art; all you need is a reblog. But when it comes to make people want to read fanfiction, it can get just a little more tricky.

To give writers more recognition, and to celebrate their stories, we’ve decided to organize the Fic Rec Days.

On February 10th, 11th, and 12th, you’re invited to rec your favourite fics, from the all time faves to the WIPs you’re currently enjoying.

How? In any way you want!

  • Create a post saying why people should read the fic!
  • Draw some fanart!
  • Create graphics/aesthetics!
  • Make a fic rec list!
  • Make a mix!
  • And so on.

Anything, really; there’s no way of rec’ing worth less than another.

This way, you will:

  1. Promote writers’ fics, and maybe get them new readers.
  2. Make their day, they will be super happy!
  3. Maybe encourage them to write more (win-win!)

Any rules/extra information?

  • Tag your posts with #ficrecdays
  • Tag your fandom/ship.
  • You can always queue if you’re not available!
  • Readers, please consider leaving a comment on the fics you liked!

Above all else, have fun, make people happy (writers and new readers alike!)

Reblog to spread the word, and see you then! :D

Ok so I had a bit of a realisation about my executive dysfunction… (this is gonna be pretty wordy)
I hope most of us have seen that one very informative post about how executive dysfunction works and suggestions for dealing with it, such as breaking things down into detailed steps. As informative as it is, it hasn’t been much use to me. (Check it out here)

I’m the type of person who often has trouble utilizing a tool or method if I don’t know how it works. That’s what happened for me with that post. I thought “alright, I’ll just break it down into steps”, but because I didn’t know why this worked, I wasn’t able to utilize it properly, and it just didn’t work for me. Until a couple nights ago when I realised how it is supposed to work.
I had been trying for a couple of hours to get out of bed and go to the kitchen, but I was just stuck. Then I realised why I was stuck. I was tucked into bed and holding my phone. Whenever my brain tried to issue the command, “go to the kitchen”, this command would be immediately cancelled, because there were unsatisfied conditions that had to be met before that action could be performed. These conditions were that I needed to remove my blanket and put my phone away, because, well, I can’t prepare food wrapped in a blanket and holding a phone.

So my brain would cancel “go to the kitchen” because it knew that I had to do other things before that would be possible, but it would then fail to recognize and initiate those tasks.
At this point, now that I understood the concept of unsatisfied requirements, I was then able to break it up into useful steps because I was able to recognize what steps I was missing. So my steps went from, “go to kitchen, make food” to, “put phone away, take off cover, sit up, get up, walk into the kitchen…” and so on.

In short, if you’re having trouble breaking things down into helpful steps, consider this: does the step you’re working on right now have simpler requirements that you need to meet before the step will become possible?

((sorry this was so long, I’m terrible with words but I’m hoping I might help someone else who’s been having problems similar to mine. and if any of this doesn’t make sense to you, please ask me to clarify)) 

A-Typical April

Originally posted by seekingakumas

Hey guys! It is almost time to celebrate A-typical April ^_^ A chance for all of us to give some love and appreciation to the less popular and celebrated things in the ML universe! There is so much about this show that is great other than just our adorable love square, and while we are still on Hiatus I thought it would be good to take some time and focus on that. ^_^  (This does not mean no Adrien or Marinette, just that the focus of all the works should be on something other than the Love Square.) 

For A-typical April I will be providing a series of both Weekly themes and Daily prompts that you can follow. (And will even have one of those fun visual calendars as well.

Now you CAN do art or fics or gifs or anything else following the weekly or daily prompts (and you certainly don’t have to do all of them!), OR you can show support by finding and kudos and reblogging other people’s works! Take a minute to look through the tags at some Tom and Sabine art, or share a link to a great Julerose or Ninoir fic. So many great non-lovesquare works get glossed over, and this is a wonderful chance to take the time and appreciate them! This show has so many amazing aspects to it that make it what it is. 

Anyways: For now Here is a list of the weekly themes! (Daily Calendar coming soon!)

Week 1: Friendship- There are so many amazing friendships on this show we could honestly spend a whole month just talking about that. 

Week 2: Love- As much as the Love square is great, let’s take some time to appreciate some of the other pairings in this fandom, there is no small list to chose from 

Week 3: Villains- This can include all the akumas, the troublesome adults lurking around (may or may not be plotting an Andre Bourgeois drabble for this week) or even some love for our resident butterfly enthusiast. After all without the villains, we wouldn’t have much of a plot now would we? 

Week 4: Daily Life- we all love the magic and the action scenes, but part of what is fun about this show is the regular day to day interactions between the characters. We get just as excited to see Marinette win a videogame contest as we do to see her face off against an actual giant robot!


That’s it for A-Typical April part 1! Part 2 Coming soon. (AKA probably tonight) 

If you want to participate please feel free to like and reblog this post- also use the following tag-        #MLAtypical  #Atypical April

That way people can track the event! 

Negative space

Read on AO3


“If I ask nicely, will you do it?”

it looks up. You never noticed that it makes noises. The last time you saw it, face to face (skies, blood, fragments, fear or no fear), you didn’t notice the noise.

The noise alone is overwhelming: it’s not even auditory anymore. It’s just vibration, humming, deep in everything around you, deep in you. It goes through everything.

it doesn’t answer just yet.

You may have noticed that i’ve jacked up my art prices.  Even though I am uncomfortable sometimes with it being this high, I figure to myself that I shouldn’t contribute to the low prices of commission art, and that i should lower the bottom line for artists better than me because of my own insecurities. I hope you all understand.

Use your own discretion when you commission me. If its something you don’t see in my art tags at all, its probably something i won’t draw, but I will lay down a couple more obvious ones. 

WON’T DRAW

-fecal matter (this request only happened once when i was 14 and first starting out in the commission game but better safe than sorry)

-Underage looking characters in NSFW themes (this topic too hot i’m not touching it, i don’t know how to draw children looking characters anyway)

Anything else is pretty much fair game, but whether or not i can draw them well is up to your own judgement.

I’m open to making deals if you for some reason want a large amount of drawings (if you notice that i’ve been drawing a lot of Flash lately, yeah that person got a discount)

i’ve been thinking about ramses’ whole “you’re useless” thing @ juno regarding his eye and man… fuck. is it really any wonder juno agreed to help him? like imagine you’re juno, you’ve lost one of the main skills you used to always bank on, you’re depressed, you feel like you can’t help anybody, and this mf comes along and straight up goes “yeah. yeah you suck and you can’t help anyone, but i have a quick and easy solution to help you so long as you help me” like… that’s shady as fuck, especially since he makes a point to not reveal his actual goals, but dude. if i were juno, i absolutely would’ve taken my fucking chances with the solution being offered

it’s smart and clever in the sense that is is targeted and manipulative and plays on weaknesses ramses knows juno has, as well as reaffirming beliefs juno already holds (and it’s a different reaffirmation than say, mick, yelling at him and telling him to pick himself up and pull himself together. with mick, it was genuine, ‘people want to help but they can’t until you stop being such an asshole and help yourself’, whereas ramses only puts juno in that vulnerable place to essentially sell him something). it would sound, to juno, like ramses is confirming the truth, saying what other people are too afraid to say, but you know the thing about people working for profit is they are… rarely sincere or completely honest in their message or how they say they’ll go about it. any means justify the ends kind of thing, and you really get the vibe that he looked juno up and he was going to say/do everything in his power to get juno on his side (especially when juno agreed and he said “i knew you would” or w/e like yikes! red flag #83478)

and my guy. my dude. i would never, ever trust a smooth talking politician who says exactly what you already think as well as spouting ideological but physically impossible rhetoric like “clean the city”, but the problem with those kinds of characters is they do not make it easy to hate them (or i guess, you can hate them but because they’re saying what you already think, you don’t think they are WRONG). that’s like, the whole goal.

what i’m saying is i think ramses is a liar and snake, i think we don’t know any of his motivations (and the ones we do know sound like this guy walked straight out of gotham city ffs), and i am both very intrigued and kind of terrified to see if he ever drops the mask of saying exactly what everyone wants to hear.

hey guys! my last semester of high school starts tomorrow and i thought i could make a quick lil masterpost on how to take on your next semester head-on and how to start off strong.

1. start off organized (whatever organized means to you)

  • one thing i tried this year was keeping a folder for all of my school papers and it helped me a lot instead of just putting my papers in one designated spot like previous years. keeping one folder (or one folder per subject) can help you keep track of all of your papers. 
  • if you need tips on how to stay organized, check out my masterpost here :)

2. try to have a positive mindset

  • although i’m kind of loathing going back to school, you have to try and find the positives in going back! and it doesn’t have to be academic, my positive thought about school is that i’ll get to see my friends and read more cool books for Literature class. if you go into it with a negative mindset, school will be a drag and you won’t do your best.

3. make small progress on any long term assignments at the beginning

  • following this step should help relieve any stress about a long term project, especially one that you know is coming (ex. me with my quarter assignments for literature). making progress can range from starting to read the book early to just writing a sentence a day or somethin’. but you don’t want to get too caught up in this step that you forget about the work that is due the next day, or something of the sort. 

4. *mainly for seniors* if you have anything application related, do it asap.

  • i know that i have my CSF application due some time throughout the second semester and a couple scholarship items to complete, so i’m going to do them either during the break before the next semester or as early as possible in the next semester. doing this is very helpful and will help relieve any anticipation or stress. 

5. detox the weekend before you go back to school

  • personally, i try to refrain from doing anything school-related the weekend before school because you should just relax and prepare by being relaxed. take a bubble bath, watch a movie, hang with some friends, sleep, anything that makes you happy and relaxed. dunno what to do? i have some cute things here in my self care tag.

6. Have fun.

  • have a great time, don’t let school run your whole life.

i know this isn’t much but these are just my own little tips that i thought might help someone else. it sounds a lot like my Staying Organized masterpost, but most of that does overlap here. any masterpost recommendations? let me know and I will definitely take it into consideration.
