so wonderful to see my otp like this


“ There’s something sweet and almost kind
But he was mean and he was coarse and unrefined
And now he’s dear and so I’m sure
I wonder why I didn’t see it there before… “

@sugawara-kkoushi​, thank you for the idea! I love it, and I hope you and the rest of the shippers out there like as much! ♥ ♪

I just wanted to let you know I love following your blog. Your art is absolutely gorgeous. You made me low key ship bakudeku which is impressive seeing as my OTP is kiribaku!! The way you draw Bakugou takes my breath away. He is so so good. I also really enjoy your kirikami pieces! Thank you so much for sharing your art with us. You truly are a wonderful person!

!! ; ; omgh really?? thank you so mUCH Aaahh it’s kindda really an honor to hear–! To bridge my love for boom boom and Bakudeku/Kirikami to another fellow boom boom fan (and a Kiribaku shipper nonetheless–!) makes feels like an accomplishment lmao hjnfjkdfjk  feels bad I havnt really drawn these two together so as a kinda apology/thank you…

here this just for you anon–! and any of my followers who are quiet kiribaku shippers lu


I found this wonderful invention on ebay: a cute little backpack with a fabric pocket behind clear, heart-shaped vinyl, so you can display your pins without worrying about them falling off! The best part? It’s sparkly vinyl!

I could only fit a fraction of my collection behind the window (I have a pin addiction), but I made sure to include my OTPs to make the most of the heart shape.

Edit: I wasn’t expecting this post to get more than like 5 notes so I didn’t think to include a link. This is the listing I bought mine from, but as you can see, there are tons of other sellers so mine might not be the cheapest, especially if you’re interested in a different color.

dear Jamilton shippers

Guys. This is important.

(Also if you ship Jamilton- I’m sorry, but I can’t see your side of this argument, I really, really can’t)

What happened to Lams?

Lams was the adorable, historically accurately gay, and overall amazing ship. So much so, that the fandom* shoved it down everyone’s throat.

What about Hamliza?

I think Hamliza is so pure, and how can you not ship it? I think that in all the Lams shipping, Hamliza was just kinda pushed away by some. And not everyone, I know both Lams and Hamliza shippers.

Jeffmads. J e f f m a d s?

Jeffmads is actually the best(my opinion lol) Jefferson and Madison were honestly the best of friends historically. This ship is my OTP and I love it so much(it’s even the background of my chat you can see)

But Jamilton?

They H A T E D each other. It’s pure lust, if even that. If you ship Jamilton, give me some other reason besides the hate sex and it’s hot. Jefferson and Hamilton, dating? No, that’s fucking t o x i c. There’s no explanation for it. I wonder if there’s a person that shipped Jamilton before the ‘Lams Fad’** was over. Good luck, as if you do, I’d like more reason then the hate sex.

* When I say fandom, I’m referring to it in general, not every single person

** I refer to it as Lams Fad because I feel like the fandom just got tired of this ship for some reason and started to ship Jamilton.

Think about it.


Edit: I’m not trying to ship bash or tell you what to ship, I’m honestly trying to get an explanation as to why you ship it. I honestly want to know

My thoughts on wonder woman

So I finally went to see wonder woman. Boy, do I have thoughts. I mean I’ve been scouring tumblr for wondertrev goodies and you guys did not disappoint. Seriously, I love and appreciate you all, but there’s a few things that I’d like to point out about the gorgeousness that is a movie like Wonder Woman. It’s not just the otp chemistry that is Diana and Steve. It’s also the utter beauty of their interactions with secondary and even “lesser” characters portrayed in the movie.

First there’s Etta, Steve’s Secretary. It’s utterly obvious to her that Diana is new, not to mention sort of naive to her surroundings and customs of 1900s London. Yet, Etta never takes this opportunity to ridicule or minimize her new friend. No cruel remarks or weird looks were directed at Diana. Not Fucking once. As a matter of fact, Etta lifts her up by commenting on Diana’s beauty. The amazing thing is that she takes Diana’s eccentricities in stride and rather makes it a point to treat her as an equal. I just, I can’t y'all. Even Ares the God of war treats Etta with respect and values her opinions. So much so that he makes her his personal Secretary and trusts her with decision making.

Now on to Charlie. My beautiful tortured
Scotsman. Words cannot explain my delight at seeing someone with PTSD. Why? Simply because for once a character with such an obscure backstory is not usually shown as human. They’re mostly seen as stoic robots with no emotions. Yet here was Charlie, funny, a bit reckless, and he liked to portray himself as an uncaring idiot. But he was so much more. The fact that he had a flashback and froze when his team needed him was immensely important to me. I’ve had such moments myself. Yet, Steve and the rest of the crew worked around his needs. There was no reproach or belittling. They try to calm him and instead focus on his strengths, which was singing and observations. Not to mention he was extremely brave and loyal til the end. His PTSD didn’t define him. It was just another part of him and for once it didn’t make him weak.

Now on to Chief. It was incredible to see such a strong character and he was treated like any human. His native roots was not a blanket with which to shroud him. He was more level headed than Sameer and Charlie but with his own sorrows and expectations of the world around him. He was open minded enough to realize that race was not a factor for good or evil. He took people as they were. Gave them a chance. Not once did you see hate depicted for the people that cause his suffering. He was remorseful yes, but it was something that he didn’t dwell on because doing so would poison his heart and turn him into the very people who killed his family. He was forgiving or else he wouldn’t have trusted someone like Steve or Charlie. He knew he had to put his pain aside and accept his past in order to move on and make life his own.

Sameer my charismatic baby doll. He wanted to be an actor yet he put his dreams aside to do what he thought was important. Sure, he lied and he most certainly was in the fighting for money at the beginning, but he was respectful. He valued everyone and he was proud of who he was. He appreciated beauty but never once over stepped his bounds. He was impressed by the skills everyone exhibited and loyal to the core. He was so brave. His character wasn’t treated like a token Indian man. He was shorter than his other counterparts but I didn’t even notice it. Everyone was of different height, presence and body type yet none of these characteristics were singled out. Each had their own strength and boy I just LOVED this movie. Expect me to post write and generally cram your feed with Wonder Woman goodness. Good night and hopefully this post wasn’t too long.

urbuddylance  asked:

You know how Vrepit Sal was like "I'll do anything to find Hunk again"? Because of that I'm pretty sure he's gonna show up sometime later with adoption papers already filled out for Hunk, But since Coran has already adopted him, they challenge each other for custody of Hunk. They end up falling in love. You seemed like a person that would enjoy this so here you go.

this is my otp honestly?? beautiful

tbh while I get why people don’t like established relationship fics - as a good portion of the time they’re written with your otp breaking up or their relationship consists of a lot of angst until the very end - I personally love them so much.

Like I don’t get how you could not like your otp being together, being happy, and navigating a relationship, which can be very hard, but then they work through it. Like I love reading about my otp doing the little, sweet things together as well as going through the big things together. If an established relationship fic is written right and written well, it makes for a really compelling story to me. Like, I’m in love with this couple, so I could read about them doing this and that all day long, about them smiling as they kiss and them having little squabble’s over who gets the grocery’s or who forgot to call the plumber because the toilet is still on the fritz, or who is the clean one who gets annoyed at the other’s messiness, etc, etc. 

I love reading about their intimate conversations that lead to them falling even more in love with each other. 

I love reading about their sexual relationship developing and changing as they try new things, but also how they become familiar with what the other person likes the more they have sex. 

I love reading about my otp having a hard time but getting through it. They have fights but they make up. 

But even break-up fics with an at first established relationship can be interesting - which, I feel, might be a reason why some people might not like established relationship fics - because then we get to read about them getting back together, which can also be just as sweet. 

But really I just love reading about my otp being together and never giving up on each other and always working it out. tbh give me all the established relationship fics, because it feels like we so rarely get a happy ending for our fave couples in the tv shows/books/movies we consume, but with fic we can get that all we want, and with established relationship we get to see them be together when tv shows/books/movies so rarely show us a happy couple - and when they do, it feels like it isn’t long before they break them up. Which can work or not work, if it’s written well, but at this point tv shows/books/movies have done it so often that it’s tiring seeing couple and after couple break up, and most likely not be endgame in the end anyway. 

But with established relationship we get to see our otps be together, which is what we really want anyway. 

Not that fics that are our otps getting together aren’t amazing, because they are just as amazing and fun and wonderful. 

But give me an established relationship too and I’ll eat it up like candy because yes, I get to read a story with my otp being together and happy and in love after the getting together part and I’m not just imagining it. It’s the most wonderful feeling to me to read things like that. 

Just, give me all the established relationship pls.

okay, so someone asked me about the fic I wrote, and how I said that Regina had tried to get to Emma (which is fine, cos I did say her actions were canon-compliant, and I haven’t seen anyone talking about this yet, so I wondered how many of you had caught it), and Robin held her back.

I finally found a clip of just those 2 seconds, and you can clearly see her step forward, and he wraps his arms around her, keeping her there. It almost looks like she’s trying to push him off.

anonymous asked:

hello, a recently-turned 16-year-old here!! i like your blog but i constantly hesitate on following bc otayuri makes me super uncomfortable and the fact that you're lowkey sexualizing someone my age always keeps me away. so, quick question - why are you putting a 15-year-old boy in sexual situations, Welcome to the Madness notwithstanding considering that's the studio's thing

Once upon a time when the earth was young and dinosaurs roamed freely (so… 2002), RC was 15 years old. RC sucked her first dick that year. RC loved it. RC hasn’t forgotten the thrill and uncertainty and fun of discovering her body and what she liked sexually. And sometimes RC likes to revisit that time through her writing.

Look, if this pairing ain’t your bag, that’s perfectly fine! That’s why I diligently tag my posts: XKit’s Blacklist tool is a wonderful thing. Blacklist the otayuri/otp: the brat and the android tags and follow me without worrying about seeing it. Or don’t follow and pop in every so often.

Whatever works for you, bb! You are in charge of the content you consume, after all.

I think I finally know why Malec makes me so happy, apart from it being one of the sweetest ships ever: I often tend to like characters with way less screen time than others and I ship couples that either only have a handful (like literally) of other fans shipping them, too or it is an OTP that is not canon or not endgame.

Malec was the reason I started to even watch Shadowhunters. It is what makes me watch all Malec scenes of season 2 everytime there is a new episode though I actually am still in season 1. I pretty much disliked the ‘City of Bones’-movie, I tried to watch the series more that once, but just could not get a connection to it. Then I spied Malec videos and was intrigued by them. Some lovely fellas even put entire Malec stories on youtube, editing all their so far scenes together, but as much as I am thankful for that it is not the same when they are out of context. So I decided to give the series yet another try … and eventually had to find I really started to like it. I am able to confess when I made a wrong conclusion and here I definitely did. The world in it is amazing, the plot is cool and one after the other I began to like more of the characters – especially Simon, who is my fav Xander Harris after the original one and Stiles (who I actually think is a mixture of Xander and Willow, apart from being his very special adorkable self).

I know Malec is special for so many reasons (e.g. representation-wise), to me it is what makes my fandom heart beat for yet another OTP. It makes me smile every time I see a related new gif (or even old ones), edits, fanart. It lets me be a part of a wonderful new fandom that I never would of discovered without. It helps me over the fact that my fav series Teen Wolf is a) in the last season, b) on winter hiatus, c) mostly lacks my fav character and d) just destroyed one of my two OTPs. And I really hope they do not screw up that couple here.

So thank you, Cassandra Clare, thank you Shadowhunters cast and crew for bringing Malec into my life.

shufuta  asked:

My OTP ship is Akira x Futaba so obviously there's lots of Sojiro interaction there, but I've been curious with how other Futaba ships deal with Sojiro's reaction. I wonder if there's any fanwork recs / headcanons with that theme. I do multiship though not as hard as my OTP of course, I just really want to see variations in Sojiro's reaction especially in which Futaba is shipped with a girl?

 On AO3 there’s honestly not a lot of Futaba shipped with girls at all like Futaba + f/f tag has 47 and almost all are still her as a minor character or with Akira.

There’s Le Blanc Royale which has her with Haru (I’m not sure about Sojiro interaction)- it also comes with heavy angst though. It’s a missed deadline story.

Girl Talk  (part 2 of where the lines overlap) has Poly-phantoms which is always a plus, and it has Sojiro giving it a valiant effort by giving it to -you guessed it- the girls to handle. Futaba’s going to have all the girlfriends

Here’s one with him handling it with a female reader, it’s called girl, friend, and is kind of nice.

And this one has Akira/Futaba but it’s trans!Akira, A new Persona. Be warned I haven’t read that one so I don’t know how accurate the representation is.


Sometimes I wonder about my life. I lead a small life. Well, not small, but valuable. And sometimes I wonder, do I do it because I like it, or because I haven’t been brave? So much of what I see reminds me of something I read in a book, when shouldn’t it be the other way around? I don’t really want an answer. I just want to send this cosmic question out into the void. So good night, dear void.

Chapter 114

It really hits me how many people actually cared to talk to Todoroki or cared to show some sort of response to his failed status. Particularly I want to focus on Deku, Yaoyorozu, and Iida. I’m so happy that the mangaka made sure there were panels shown for these three in separate occasions showing concern for Todoroki. 

Deku, of course, is one of Todoroki’s closest friends that he has made during his time at UA. He obviously feels down and in a way, disappointed that Todo didn’t get his temporary license. Especially because Deku was THERE when Todo and Inasa were disagreeing with each other. Deku notices that Todoroki is quieter than usual, if not completely silent, and he is probably wondering what he could do to help him (since deku is deku after all, he wants to help his friends whenever he can). 

Then there’s Iida. Mineta was being a lil douche ‘cas you know…Mineta’s natural self is basically an annoying crybaby pervert (sorry, I just really don’t like Mineta…no matter how hard I try to like him I just can’t LOL). Iida sees this and with his class leader demeanor, quickly grabs Mineta and pulls him out of the way (maybe before Todoroki burns Mineta’s face to a crisp????). 

Ever since the hero killer arc, I do see Iida as one of Todoroki’s bros, and even though Iida might not show it, Iida feels like Todoroki is one of his bros too, at least that’s what I’d like to believe. Instinctively, Iida does not say much to Todoroki as they both like to keep feelings to themselves, Todoroki more so than Iida. Yet, I see throughout the manga that Iida thinks about Todoroki and Deku and cares about their well-being deep inside. My headcannon is Deku and Iida asks Todoroki about what he’s planning to do about the exam and saying how they believe in him once they’re out of the arena. Iida probably even thinks of some crazy ways to help Todoroki prep and then quickly shake it off and say how he’s just joking because he knows Todoroki can pass it the second time without even breaking a sweat.

OMG NOW….for YAOMOMO. yes my otp todomomo omg, I was actually wondering if she would say ANYTHING to Todoroki this chapter or the next. And I got my wish!!! She says “Todoroki…I’m so sorry…” like seriously, Horikoshi sensei made sure to add in a panel with her and Deku voicing their sympathies. I’m just so happy about that because I feel like Yaoyorozu is one of the people in the class who looked up to Todoroki and clearly sees him as someone who is exceptionally talented…an idol to her, if you will. Yaoyo also pays a lot of attention to what he does (as shown in chapters 63 and 64, where my todomomo ship started sailing towards canon island). If she didn’t say a single word to Todoroki, I would think its out of her character tbh. Imo, her expression speaks volumes. There’s a bead of sweat dripping down her cheek, and the two lines on the right shows maybe a slight head movement, perhaps she’s nodding her head in a small bow? Yaoyo was raised in a very well-off family and her manners are superb so it would not be out of the ordinary for her to do a slight nodding motion while saying ‘sorry’; its quite common in Japanese culture to do so.

anonymous asked:

Hi With ThrawnxVeers becoming my OTP i wondered if there are other imperials being in a relationship. There are two officers who seemingly hate each other, but i think they are together. Admiral Motti and General Tagge. I think they pretend to hate each other so no one suspects anything, as protection because they are scared how others react if they found out. I like to imagine they are the Romeo and Juliet of Star Wars. So, my question is: What do you think about the ship MottixTagge?

Hello anon! I assume you meant to send this message to my writer @white-rainbowff, seeing that I am just the lowly artist who draws naked men for her stories.

Anyways, we plan to eventually matchmake every Imp across the galaxy cos villains also deserve some happiness lol. Tbh we haven’t thought too much about Motti yet, other than him being a Tarkin fanboy. I can see why you would suggest Tagge, since they are both from wealthy families, both very prideful men, and they don’t get along with Vader. Personally I don’t think they have to really hide their relationship since they are from different divisions of the military, so not much conflict of interest there. Rather they are more like that cantankerous couple who still love each other even though they have hundreds of disagreements between them. That’s a test of true love innit?

anonymous asked:

1. The fifth time they meet, it is because she seeks him out at the Royal castle. It is several weeks after he allowed her to escape from the Dark One’s dungeon, and she has recovered fully from her wounds. She tries to tell herself to let that be their final interaction – he had the opportunity to end her life, but chose not to, which means he’s moving on from thoughts of vengeance. She should lie low and permit him to walk that path without having to deal with her - the person he blames.

2. She should also be making the most of her second chance, moving on from her old life and family. And yet, if there is one thing she can’t do, it is to let go of her son completely. Facing an existence without seeing him is even harder when another version is so close. So, against her better judgement, she finds herself one evening pushing her dinner to one side, taking a deep breath and allowing her magic to transport her away.

3. She reappears next to a bench set amongst some rose bushes. It is a small, private side-garden, accessible only to those who know both where the door is hidden and also have the key. The bushes look cared for, so she can tell at least someone tends the plants inside. Her instincts told her to come her, so she settles on the bench and waits. A long time passes, her fingers becoming cold from the breeze. Her wounds may be healed but her body is still more tired and sensitive than before.

4. Finally, when the last of the daylight has vanished and the stars have made their appearance, she hears the sound of a key in the lock. Someone enters, closing the door behind them, and then footsteps near. She waits patiently as the person approaches, letting herself smirk slightly when the feet come to an abrupt halt. ‘We’ve spoken before without guards,’ she pushes, when the silence lingers. Henry – King Henry, as she always has to tell herself – moves into view.

5. ‘How do you even know about this place?’ he asks, a curious expression on his face instead of exhibiting fear or hatred. She supposes that is definitely a step in the right direction. ‘I gather you read that book back to front several times?’ she replies, already knowing the answer. He nods, choosing to lean against a statue rather than join her on the bench. He’s dressed in typical night robes for this land – not something her Henry would be seen dead in. She smiles at the thought.

6. ‘Well, when we had that year where we were all sent from Storybrooke back to the Enchanted Forest, and I was separated from my Henry-’ she breaks off, pain in her heart at the similar situations. And yet this time, there is no Snow or David or even Belle around her. ‘We stayed in our version of this castle – the entire pathetic group of people. I would come here every night, just to have some peace, and think about Henry without Snow asking me every five minutes if I was alright.’ 

7. She almost bites her tongue when she realizes she’s mentioned Snow’s name. The death of his grandparents and disappearance of his mother is of course all on her head in his eyes – even if she wasn’t the version to actually perform those acts. Henry crosses his arms, but appears to contemplate what she says. ‘If what is written in the book is true,’ he begins slowly, ‘And I’m not saying that I believe it - it could just be your way of trying to trick me.’

8. He glances sideways at this, and she knows he’s lying – he does believe the book, at least somewhat. ‘If it were true though, you two ended up being close then? You and Grandma?’ She smiles sadly at him, and nods. ‘We forgave each other, and became family. She was always giving me ridiculous hope speeches. Emma became a dear friend too. I miss them.’ He bites his lip, clearly turning something over in his mind. ‘If it was so difficult during that year, why did you leave again? Leave Henry?’ 

9. ‘It’s all there in the book, Henry,’ she says gently. ‘I didn’t have a choice about leaving. And I miss him, every single day.’ Silence falls for a moment. Her hands are getting colder, and she rubs them together slightly. ‘I’m not him,’ Henry blurts out suddenly. ‘I’m not your son. I have no memories of growing up with you, or living in that world.’ She remembers then – remembers mistaking him for her Henry when she lay dying. Maybe that is what made him believe in the book. 

10. ‘I know you aren’t my son,’ she admits, twisting her fingers together. ‘That doesn’t mean you aren’t like my Henry in many ways though. You’re him if he had had a very different upbringing, is all.’ He snorts at this, rubbing a toe into the dirt. He looks very much like a teenager in this moment, and nothing like a King. ‘I’m not trying to replace my son,’ she continues, watching his face closely. ‘And if you want, I can leave and you’ll never have to see me or think about me ever again.’ 

11. He becomes quiet again at this offer, and the silence stretches on so long that she makes a move to stand up and transport herself away. If that is his choice, then she will respect it. But as soon as she’s standing, he holds out a hand. ‘I have to welcome all the nobles in the Kingdom to the castle next week,’ he tells her, in an odd shift in topic. ‘I’m slightly terrified that they won’t take me seriously, considering the fact that they’re all at least two decades older than me.’

12. ‘Overwhelm them with polite steeliness,’ she advises him with a twitch of her lips. ‘I became Queen at a rather young age myself, and found if you’re polite but don’t let them get away with anything, the old curmudgeons learn to respect you quite quickly.’ He nods, and at last smiles back. ‘I know, I read the books,’ he tells her. At her confused expression, he elaborates. ‘Our history books, about your reign. When you weren’t trying to track Grandma down, you were a pretty good ruler.’ 

13. She laughs slightly, and shrugs her shoulders. ‘Helped that a lot of them were scared of me,’ she admits, pursing her lips. ‘Not a prudent route for you to take.’ He drops his chin in agreement. ‘Most of my advisors are terrible,’ he confides with a wince. ‘Half of them don’t know what they’re talking about, and the other half want to run the kingdom themselves.’ She knows that feeling well, and extends a hand out, letting it hang in the air between them for a moment in a gesture of peace. 

14. ‘I understand that, I do,’ she tells him seriously. ‘If you ever need another person’s opinion, I’m always available.’ She feels stupid at the offer, but there is a flicker of relief in his eyes, or so she chooses to see. ‘I come to this garden every night myself,’ he informs her. ‘None of my guards are allowed to disturb me here.’ They stare at each other for a moment, with new-found understanding. ‘Good night, Henry,’ she says, and she sees him smile before she transports herself away.

Art by Waen and her commissions are open

In honor of Hijikata’s Birthday, I put up two fics. One where Hijikata and Gintoki get hit with an airborne aphrodisiac and one where Kagura can’t sleep, so Gintoki entertains her and Hijikata gets dragged into it.

Also! A preview for something else I’ve got in the works! Enjoy! 

Hijikata was moving onto his second batch of paperwork when his phone rang. He glanced at the caller ID and smirked to himself before putting his pen down to answer.

“This better be good.”

Now that’s no way to greet me.
