so i tagged it as an original line

First Line Tag

Tagged by the very sweet @captain-kittenwolf17

Rules: List the first lines of your last 20 stories. See if there are any patterns. Then tag your favourite authors!

(I really refuse to list and tag favorite authors. It’s too hurtful to people to do that.  So I’ll say anyone who wishes to play, should.  Also, since I’m already breaking rules, I decided to go for five first lines I actually still like.)

  1. This is a story told in fragments about people who aren’t real in a place that doesn’t exist.  ( (x) Draco/Tom)
  2. It starts with light. (Original)
  3. Abraxas hated math.  ( (x) Tom/Abraxas)
  4. She burns with rage when she remembers.  ( (x) Tomione)
  5. As far as Theodore Nott was concerned, the Ministry of Magic could go fuck itself. ( (x) Theo/Luna)

so last night i was rereading house proud by astolat, aka the best harry potter fic there ever ever was, & then i started having Thoughts about hp wizards being the descendants of the fae cuz it just makes!! so much sense!!!

i am perpetually disappointed by so much of jkr’s world-building but this in particular bothers me so much cause like

she placed so much emphasis on blood lines & ~purity but the only ever used it as a shite allegory for racism

u know who gives a thousand shits about blood lines? the fae. u know who goes to great lengths to exist separately from humans? the fae. u know whose society is split into groups based on personality? the fae!!

the evolution of wizarding society makes so much more sense!! if u interpret them as being fae adapting to the changing world!!!

“Pick 5 (ish) of your favourite drawings and tag 5 other artists.”

I generally like most of my drawings but there’s always something I would change in them so I pick 6 I wouldn’t change because I like them as they are :) (…Well ok, maybe I would change few small bits but whatever xD)

1. Remus Lupin. Colours and lines are pretty decent and I like how his hair turned out.

2. Lineart is hard to do, and I always try to make it look like from a comic or something which I think I managed here. I like her hair in this one.

3. My original character! I like the colours and the way they’re put on the canvas. I like that some of the lineart is visible but there are those brush strokes that give it kind of painterly look.

4. Idk, I just like it’s a little bit more dynamic. My art isn’t very dynamic… :/

5. I’m really proud I managed to use just green and brown tones but things didn’t blend together. You can still see what happens in the drawing. That’s good. I like the books, wand and reflections on the desk. Oh, and hatching of his jumper.

6. The idea is pretty interesting. I like the white in this drawing.

I’m tagging: @juanjoltaire , @ev1ct, @meabhd (if you guys want to :)) and anyone who feels like sharing their favourite drawings :)

*.:。♦ ⋅ ⋆ — MUSING TAGS - QUOTE EDITION

i recently hit a huge milestone & reached the 2nd birthday for this blog, so i wanted to do something cute to give back & say thank you !!! with that being said, under the cut you’ll find 828 quotes that can be used for character musing tags ! they’ve been categorised into different labels ( eg. the baby doll, the lothario, the vixen, the cataclysmic, etc ) so some quotes may appear under more than one category. i do, however, recommend checking out all the categories !! they were just listed by my own interpretation and definitely aren’t limited to a certain label in the slightest. the pronouns used are simply what was used in the original line but can obviously be changed to fit your character. depending on personal preference, some may be a little too long but can be shortened down pretty easily. a general trigger warning is to be placed for these as they do reference some sensitive topics ( drugs, alcohol, sex, etc ), as the tags on my blog do. i believe that covers it all !! if you find this useful, please do like and/or reblog ! also, please let me know if you’d like to see a part two of this ! you can find the lyric version of this right here for more suggestions !!

A/N: Tags are closed. I originally had something completely different written, but it no longer felt like it fit with the narrative here, so I rewrote it. I accidentally increased the amount of parts needed for this story, too. I don’t really know how I feel about it, but I feel like it was necessary. Please don’t hate me, haha. BTW - Thank you so much for the sweet messages, they are simultaneously slaying me and getting me through the day.

magnus wasn’t sure how much time had passed, but what he did know was that they were both still panting, their breathing heavy and shaky as they drove down winding roads, headlights lighting up lines of pine trees. it was still flooding his mind in strange flashes, the way the hounds had spilled into the parking lot, little blotches of black. they had been a swarm, their red eyes a strange sea, all flooded together, so many snapping jaws. they were smaller than the hellhounds magnus was used to but big enough that he didn’t want any of them taking a chunk out of his arm.

it had been such a flash then, alec’s swearing, magnus blasting a few of them with a shotgun, people screaming, the hellhounds targeting them, struggling with the doors of the car and finally getting in.  then the hellhounds had hit their black mustang, a deafening crash of snapping jaws and black bodies. magnus hadn’t waited to see what they would do. he slammed his foot on the gas pedal and they were out of there as fast as he could get them. they were tearing down the street as hellhound howls echoed through the city, car alarms going of, honking and tires screeching as other vehicles got out of their way.

magnus could still hear their pounding feet, could still hear their snapping jaws, he could still hear everything that had been happening even though they were now so far out of the city he didn’t recognize where he was at all. all he could see were the stands of trees, all he could hear were the tires on the road, the soft pattering of rain against the top of the car. there was so much flooding through his mind, he felt both calmer and more addled at this point.

Rocket Men - Masterlist

Characters: Bucky Barnes, Steve Rogers, Tony Stark, Natasha Romanoff, Sam Wilson, Chris “Thor” Odinson, Tom “Loki” Odinson, Wanda Mamixoff, Scott Lang, Clint Barton, Bruce Banner, and more. 

Warnings: space related nerdery, violence, sex, drugs, drinking, cheating, lying, humor, angst, language, sadness, happiness, and more. Reader beware.

Author’s Note: Well, well, well. Here we are, sitting on the brink of the future. I (among of a bunch of you) am obsessed with space. I wanted to be an astronaut as a child but it turns out, you have to like… know stuff… to go to space so I will forever be stuck to planet Earth. So, second best, you get a series where I live out my fantasies of being apart of the NASA/Space exploration family. 

Please note: This series is set in the year 2060 and it is really, really, really the definition of an “au” (alternate universe), so much so… you could call it… original content. **GASP.**

I got a lot of feedback about this series and I am super excited to see it come to life. Not only will I be posting the main story line, I will be creating other things to really bring my ‘verse to life like: interviews with the astronauts, profiles, letters, articles, etc. 

Enjoy, Earthlings. -Ash

More scenes from my Simulator AU!! Lol honestly I just scribbled out this comic really fast, sorry that my lines are messy ^^’

Let’s see…this takes place shortly after Keith gets out of the sim and crashlands into a nearby planet…and Lance’s AI cube is super corrupted, so Keith begs these somewhat familiar people to save him ;w;

The original post for this AU is here if you want to look at it! And everything else is under the tag “Sim AU” on my blog c:

Fluffy bonus:

little-magicpuff replied to your post “Romance, Representation And You”

I have trouble in the romance genre because I’m ace, and man do I love the romance, but so many romance books = erotica. That’s why I primarily turn to fanfiction because its tagged and I can filter for that stuff, when I’d love to read and support published authors who do the same with original characters, I’m just afraid of all I have to wade through to find them.

That’s understandable, especially because there is an ever increasing blurring of lines between romance and erotica with people not being able to tell them apart, and I gotta tell you, there’s people in the Romance community who are also extremely pissed off by this because people aren’t necessarily reading Romance for sex, they are reading it for, well, the romance.

It’s also bad for erotica writers who are getting their work lumped into the purely Romance sections on websites, and then they are getting left reviews like “shocking content! very extreme, did not expect to read that in a story called “Wilted Rose” and it’s like well no shit Helen, the publisher has made an executive decision and it was the wrong one and some some poor bugger who juts wanted to write whipped bondage foot tickle torture is having their star rating tank because they were expecting Mr Darcy and got a gimpsuit instead.

And I mean, I’m not saying that extreme whipped bondage foot tickle torture can’t be romantic, I’m just saying you’re aiming for a pretty specific demographic, and there’s a fairly substantial distinction between Mr Darcy and Your Daughter Calls Me Daddy, and it’s one you really want to make.

The unicorn has time-warping, space-bending, OP, and utterly magical powers bc reasons. Also, glittery rainbow hair

Woven

Title: Woven – If It Can Bleed Part Two

Characters/Pairing: Dean x Female!Reader

Word Count: 1400

Warnings: An angry, slightly over-protective Dean, a bit of verbal fighting? Mentions of past trauma. Fluff at the end.

Series Summary: The reader is a genetically enhanced assassin who’s on the run from her creator, but what will happen when she get’s taken back to the bunker by Sam and Dean? Or falls for one of the Winchesters…

Author’s Note: Okay, part two! This one is a little shorter than I originally anticipated but the last line just seemed like a natural stopping point so I just ended it, and even when I was outlining this I thought this part seemed a little awkward and disjointed from the rest of the story but it’s necessary to show the relationship between Dean and the reader and give us a little more insight into who and what the reader is, so please bare with me here! I hope it’s still enjoyable, feedback is always appreciated! If you want to be tagged in future parts of this series please add yourself to This List or send me an Ask!

     “You have to be more careful, Y/N! You could’ve gotten seriously hurt!”

     Your breathing came quickly and your senses were almost unbearably heightened, claws and fangs itching to be released and your useful yet inconvenient eyes threatening to flare red. Things like this never happened before you met the Winchesters.

     “I have to be more careful?” you shot back. “You’re the one who jumped in front of me, Dean! I’m perfectly capable of taking care of myself.”

     “You were reckless.”

     “I was fine! We both would’ve been if you hadn’t interfered.”

     The door slammed shut behind Dean and the pictures on the dully colored motel walls shook with the force of it. “I was trying to help you!”

     “Yeah, well, I didn’t need your help, and now you’re the one who got hurt because of it!”

     You took a deep breath and turned away from Dean, feeling the familiar stinging burn as your eyes abandoned humanity and adopted a glowing, emotionally triggered red. Even after a year, even after being free from your creator’s manipulative grasp for so long, you still hadn’t figured out how to interact with normal people - or how to pass as one.

The Long Road Home: Part 1

Summary: Fate made you and Gabriel soulmates, but a spell has severed your bond completely and removed the archangel from your reality.  Will you be able to find your way back to each other or will you both remain lost?   (Sequel to Homeless)

Pairings: Gabriel x Reader, Destiel (side pairing)

Warnings/tags: angst, soulmates

Word Count: 4556

Author’s Note: This was written for June’s @gabriel-monthly-challenge statement prompt:

He remembered how excited he used to feel watching the sunrise.  Now all it brought was exhaustion and dread.  

I told you guys there would be a sequel.  I’m sorry it took so long.  My original idea was going to be a lot more concise, but in the interest of doing the journey justice, this is going to end up being multiple parts.    

Special thanks to my wonderfully amazing beta @sumara62.  Your suggestions and feedback are simply invaluable, as are your kind words and encouragement.  My work wouldn’t be what it is without you, my dear.  So thank you <3

Tagging everyone at the end (if you see a line through your name, I couldn’t get your tag to work, sorry!)


Gabriel had never been good with rules.  Well, that wasn’t completely true.  He was fantastic at breaking them.  Anything other than that, however, was a little iffy.  

He got it.  He really did.  You weren’t a fan of surprises.  He imagined most of your aversion to him stemmed from the fact he couldn’t help but be a constant one, though it wasn’t like it was his idea to have stealth mode permanently activated with you.  

He also understood how it might feel a little creeptastic having a stranger around without your knowledge.  Except he wasn’t one.  He was your father damn soulmate. 

Not that that little fact mattered much anymore.  

You couldn’t see him.  You couldn’t touch him.  You couldn’t feel him.  You couldn’t even remember him.  Every shred of evidence he had ever existed had been erased from your life.  The worst part of it all?  You barely wanted to acknowledge him.  

Father forbid, however, he didn’t acknowledge you or your damn sanctions.

Yes, I do teach creative writing: attribution.

There’s no need to ever use dialog tags. They are often clunky and add nothing. 

“I’ll kill you!” she screamed. (Can you guess she might be screaming?)

“What is that?” he asked. (Well, duh, it’s a question.)

“I love you,” I declared. (That’s a declarative sentence, so that’s obvious.)

“Not today,” he replied. (The word “replied” is my least favorite.)

“It’s a girl,” she said. (Good old “said.”)

But, you retort, we NEED dialog tags to clarify who’s speaking. That’s absolutely true, and I’m not a fan of unattributed dialog where you have to count back to figure out who’s talking.

“Give me the gun,” he demanded.

“Take one step closer and I’ll shoot.”

“You don’t even know how to use that thing.”

“Do you really want to find out how wrong you are?”

“Do you really want to do something you’ll regret the rest of your life?”

“What I want is for you to leave me alone.”

At the end of exchanges like this, I’m checking back to make sure I know, who’s saying what. So we need attribution. But dialog tags are so boring.

Good attribution can add action (even if it’s just a gesture), emotion, thought, or description. It’s separated from the dialog by a period, not a comma as with dialog tags. The writer is forced to think more deeply about what’s happening in the scene and with the characters. The reader is not stuck in a blank room with “talking heads.” Look at my five original lines of dialog, the ones with dialog tags above, rewritten with these types of attribution.

“I’ll kill you!” She bared her teeth, her hands clenched into fists of rage.

“What is that?” He could hardly look at the box as his face drained of color.

“I love you.” I had meant to say the words clearly. Why had they come out so shy and faint?

“Not today.” His eyes were bored as he turned the sign on the door to read “Closed.”

“It’s a girl.” Joy and wonder competed on her face as she handed me the bundle.

Look at how action, thought, and description attribution add to the unattributed scene.

“Give me the gun.” He held out his hand. Was it shaking slightly?

I found the safety, clicked it off. “Take one step closer and I’ll shoot.”

“You don’t even know how to use that thing.” He was trying to smile, to make light of the unlikely scenario of me with a gun.

“Do you really want to find out how wrong you are?” I didn’t try to keep my voice steady.

His smile was grim. “Do you really want to do something you’ll regret the rest of your life?”

But I was willing to call his bluff. “What I want is for you to leave me alone.”

He pulled out the kitchen chair and sat in it, still with that smile.

Doesn’t the attribution bring a lot more depth to the scene? Can’t you picture it a lot more easily?

Remember to always start a new paragraph each time the speaker changes, and sometimes even if there is no dialog, if the “camera” moves from one person to another.

Klance (theory/headcanon?)

There’s probably plenty of people who have figured this out already but I’ve never seen any content referring to it and I’m kinda bored rn so here I am.

Okay so everyone knows the notorious Bonding Moment™ in S1E5 where Keith holds Lance’s hand and helps him sit up. There’s the whole “We are a good team” line and everything.

Now skip to the next episode when Keith says “We had a bonding moment! I cradled you in my arms!”, which was pretty funny. But I couldn’t help but notice that the on-screen Bonding Moment™ didn’t involve any actual cradling like Keith claimed. Of course, I thought, there must have been more to that moment than is shown on screen. 

Now consider, who carried lance to the infirmary? Hunk and Coran were coming back with the crystal; Pidge is smol (and was helping Shiro); Shiro was conscious, but in no state to carry anyone; and Allura probably had her hands full trying to get the ship ready and wouldn’t interfere if Lance was already being assisted.

So that means Keith princess-carried carried Lance to the infirmary #confirmed  spread the word @idhrentelcontar
