squeals about it

What I’m currently writing

@allwaswell16 and @taggiecb tagged me for this, yay! Thank you!

Okay, so I’m not even sure what I’ve got going on right now, so I had to go look at my spreadsheet because I love spreadsheets. @cuethetommo feels me on this one.

1. Big Bang - I have no idea what I’m allowed to say about this but it’s NOT done, and there’s a lot of WORK left to do and uuuuggggghhh. But I love it. And I am not sure if I’m allowed to talk about the art? Just know that I’m squealing a whole lot about. I’m realizing that I don’t actually know a lot about how the BB works. There’s a ton of smut in this one.

2. A college/grad school AU set in Boston that will basically have a bunch of psychology wank and then there will be angst because I don’t even know who I am anymore and all I can write is sadness apparently. This is in active rotation for getting worked on.

3. Sometimes Goodbye is a Second Chance is not done and there is also angst in that one on its way.

4. I’ve got some ideas for a timestamp or two for Feels Like Coming Home.

5. I’ve got ideas for more one-shots in the Twist of Fate universe. 

6. There’s my pirate magic one that has been languishing forever that I even have the whole outline SOMEWHERE and I want to write but it’s hard. Writing is hard, peoples.

7. I’ve got a High School AU that I started that’s also languishing. i might have to make it college because I’m not sure I can go back to high school in my head. It was a looooong time ago.

8. And then I’ve got IDEAS for new things that I haven’t even started yet on A List. 

I don’t even know who to tag so I’mma tag @fruxoo, @greenfeelings (ignore me if you’ve already done this) and anyone else who wants to!! I TAG YOU.

Dear longfic writers
  • If you sometimes feel like it was pure, ridiculous hubris that you ever started a story that would take so much work and persistence to finish, I promise you, you’re not alone.
  • If you feel like you’ve already been writing forever and the “good bits” are still ages away, you’re not alone.
  • If you’ve been stuck for days or weeks or longer because you know what happens later but you don’t know what happens next, you’re not alone.
  • If you’re desperate to squeal about your beloved OTP but you feel like you can’t, because spoilers, and it’s driving you nuts, you’re not alone.
  • If you feel like you’ll never finish and you’re bound to fuck it up somehow, you’re not alone.
  • If you wonder if you’ve sabotaged yourself because who’s going to click through to a 28 chapter WIP, you’re not alone.
  • If you feel like you’ve been pouring your life into a single story for ages and will be for ages still and you don’t know why anymore because hardly anyone seems to care, you’re not alone.
  • If you can hardly even plan the further-away parts of the story or even think about them because thinking about them reminds you how absurdly far you still have to go and you get massive anxiety, please believe me.  You are not alone.

Omfg I am part of an LGBT book club in my uni and today we were discussing the lack of happy, fluffy stories about gay couples which don’t center around accepting your sexuality and coming out or homophobia and one of the girls eventually went “Okay, you might hate me for this because it’s not a book, but there is an anime-”

And another girl cut her off and went “Don’t tell me - Yuri on Ice?” And then they immediately started screaming and gushing over how good it was, how it was everything we wanted (especially in context of how there weren’t enough happy stories where the characters just happen to be gay and in a gay relationship) and I quickly joined in and squealed about it with them.

We ended up recommending it to the other people and the president of the book club agreed to watch it and was excited to check it out.

So yeah, Yuri on Ice is now helping me meet new people in uni, and helping me find people who loved it as much as I did in real life. I already thought its impact was amazing, but wow it never stops surprising me.

Her Walking Around With Their Hoodie: BTS

Jin: 

He’d probably get super shy and giggly, loving how his hoodie looked on you. He’d also get super affectionate, coming up behind you and giving you little kisses throughout the day.


Suga: 

“You don’t actually think you can keep that, do you?”

He would act all annoyed that you stole his hoodie, but he’d secretly love it and break into a smile when you weren’t looking. 


J-Hope: 

He would be super dramatic and go into fanboy mode, squealing about how cute you looked.


Rap Monster: 

He would give you a suggestive stare when you walked by, to which you would roll your eyes. (He wouldn’t give up, though)


JiMin: 

At first, he’d act all confident, trying to be smooth. But then he’d burst into giggles and moan about how cute you were.


V: 

He wouldn’t say much, just blatantly stare at you with a big grin as you walked by.

“What is it, Taehyung?”

“Nothing, you just look really cute, and I love you.”


JungKook: 

He’d try hard not to smile too big but ultimately fail. He’d also end up getting more hoodies from his closet and giving them to you. 

“I think you should always wear my hoodies from now on,”

Okay for all the squealing about Dirk and Todd in the latest episode of Dirk Gently I don’t see anyone talking about Amanda and the Rowdy Three/Four. Which is a shame.

The writers did an amazing thing with these five and let me tell you why: they took characters that until that moment had been nothing but consent-violatingly destructive and turned that on it’s head at the drop of a hat. Not only that, but when Amanda gets into the van in the first place– on her terms– they respect the shit out of her almost immediately. They give her a way to vent her frustrations about her situation (albiet a socially unacceptable one, but it beats in some ways sitting alone at home beating the shit out of a drumset.) At least with the Rowdy Three/Four she has a support system outside of Todd (who, bless his heart is still trying to keep Amanda at a distance from Dirk and Farah, however pointless that eventually is.)

Then Amanda has an attack when she’s with the Rowdy Three/Four and instead of ripping the energy out of her only Cross approaches, slowly, deliberately, and eases the energy out through her hands, in a complete turn around from their first encounter. Amanda is never seen telling any of them what to do, this is Cross acting out of a place of respect and consent and sympathy for Amanda’s condition. And what does he say? “You don’t have to worry about that shit anymore.” Maybe Amanda isn’t sure about what she’s seeing/experiencing but she knows it’s stopping due to whatever Cross just did and the look on their faces says it all.

What began as a a seemingly tired narrative about the harassment of someone with a crippling mental illness turned, in one instance to a narrative of consent and understanding. (A narrative that is mirrored in it’s own way with Dirk and Todd later on.) Characters coming forward to act on their own terms, to create boundries or break down boundries they’ve imposed on themselves is a huge theme of the show and one I wish I saw being talked about more.

When you're a fangirl who can't write

The worst part of being a fangirl who cant write is having a head chock full of headcanons but no words to communicate them with, so you’re forced to squeal about it with no one but yourself hoping that a fic writer will have the same idea as you one fateful day.

WHERE’S MY BANQUET OVA

KUBO I LOVED THE ENDING AND YOUR EXISTENCE BUT WHERE IS MY POST-GPF BANQUET SCENE.

YOU HAVE GIVEN US THE WORLD AND PERFECTION WITHIN IT I LOVE EVERYTHING ABOUT THIS LAST EPISODE BUT I NEED TO SEE THE REUNION WITH ALL OF THE SKATERS.

I NEED TO SEE PHICHIT SPRINTING UP TO YURI GRIPPING HIS HAMSTERS AND SQUEALING ABOUT HIS DREAM WHILE YURI SMILES WEAKLY BUT SMILES FOR SUPPORT NONETHELESS

I WANNA SEE YURI’S OLD COACH GIVE HIM A SLAP ON THE BACK WITH A HARSH “I KNEW YOU COULD DO IT! MAKE SURE TO LAY OFF THE CHAMPAGNE, KIDDO.”

I WANNA SEE CHRIS BLOWING VICTOR OFF JEALOUSLY AND HIS “COME-TOO-LATE” MAN SLINGING HIS ARM AROUND CHRIS’S SHOULDER AND GIVING HIM A GLASS OF CHAMPAGNE TO COOL HIM DOWN.

GIVE ME A JJ WHO HAS LEARNED HIS LESSON ABOUT EGOTISTICAL TENDENCIES AND AWKWARDLY COMPLIMENTS YURI AND YURIO FOR SKATING A BETTER GAME THAN HIM. 

I GOTTA GET ME SOME OF THAT AWKWARD OTAYURI POST-COMPETITION CONVERSATION (Yurio: “I apologize for taking your dream from you. I know you wanted the gold medal to bring back to your country…” Otabek: “There will be many more opportunities for the both of us. Your free skate was beautiful or sOME SHIT LIKE THIS LETS BE TIGER AND BEAR FURRIES TOGETHER FOREVER”)

okay and fiNALLY I NEED ME A DRUNK VICTURI BECAUSE APPARENT REASONS (and let’s be honest, chris ain’t gonna pass up the opportunity to bring his stripper pole again) AND I NEED VICTOR TO DRUNKENLY CONFESS THAT THE ACTUAL MOMENT HE FELL IN LOVE WAS WHEN YURI DRY HUMPED HIM 

THIS OVA IS GOING TO HAPPEN GUYS. BECAUSE KUBO ALWAYS DELIVERS. 

me: bts doesn’t have to keep us updated all the time, they’re busy, they have lives and they need to rest before their concert. i am nOt going to be one of those fans who’re impatient asf


also me: *when BTS doesn’t tweet for 0.0003 seconds*

Reylo Chatroom?

This may sound totally bizarre and maybe I just don’t know how to tumblr - but like, does anyone wish there was a Reylo chat room for verified Reylo tumblr fans?

I like chatting on here with individuals, but I also feel like it would be so awesome to just join a channel with nothing but Reylos chatting and making connections and squealing about metas and Episode 8 updates.

I wouldn’t even know where or how to begin hosting a chat channel, and it would obviously need a good method of gatekeeping (maybe a blog needs to have at least 1 month of Reylo content on their tumblr before they’re allowed to join, and must be over a certain age), but would this interest anyone? If enough people think it’s a good idea, I’ll look into options. Also, let me know if you see any real negatives here (I know we would need to be watchful of antis).

I know a lot of people headcanon Damian staying in Gotham and going to college but what if he doesn’t?


Dick, Jason, Cass, Tim, Steph, Alfred, and Bruce all drive out with him on move in day. They wave off the frat boys coming to help unload the car and just carry everything into the dorms themselves.

Dick and Stephanie squeal about him growing up as his RA leaves the room.

Damian in a freshman dorm. DAMIAN WITH A ROOMMATE.

“Uh, hi. I’m Jack.”
“Damian.”
“Are all of these people related to you?”
“Unfortunatley.”

He lofts his bed as high as it will go and builds his own little batcave under it with his desk and stuff he brought from the manor. It’s decorated with pictures of his pets, siblings, and friends. Including Jon, Colin, Nell, and Maps.

He hears about a string of sexual assault cases on campus and decides to go out as Robin. Then has to figure out how not to be caught be his roommate.

“Dude. It’s 3 am on a Thursday. Why are you getting dressed? In the dark?”
“I, uh, like to take early morning runs and practice my katas. And I didn’t want to wake you.”
“Ok? Have fun I guess?”

His RA almost flips when he sees the sword hanging on the wall.

Meeting new people and making friends:

“Hi! I’m Maddy!”
“Damian.”
“So are you a freshman too?”
“Yes.”
“Cool! What’re you thinking of majoring in? I’m not really sure yet but I’m pretty interested in psychology.”
“Biology, then veterinary school.”
“Oh wow. That’s awesome. So where are you from?”
“Gotham.”
“Wait, Gotham City? Like where Batman’s from?”
*sigh* “Yes. And before you ask, yes, I have met Batman and Robin and whatever other vigilante you’re about to ask about. It is because as the youngest and only blood son of Bruce Wayne I tend to get kidnapped often. Additionally, you can run into them just walking down the street more often than not. Yes, I am that Damian Wayne. No, I do not intend on taking over my father’s company. Yes, having that many siblings is crazy. Please do not ask me about my father’s involvement with Batman Inc. or really anything else.”
*blinks* “Wow. Um. Ok.”

Just Damian going through the struggle of a first semester college student being the son of a billionaire and having to hide being Robin.

So I just saw the Yugioh: Dark Side of Dimensions movie in theaters this morning, so let me jot down a few of my favorite things from the experience, in no particular order

Yugioh Spoilers ahead

  • the care with which Kaiba’s six-pack was highlighted/shaded
  • Téa/Anzu is going abroad for dancing!!! (and the gang graduates, finally)
  • Kaiba Corp space station
  • which by the way is connected to the earth via elevator
  • Lemme repeat that
  • Kaiba has an elevator to space
  • The Blue Eyes White Jet is still there.
  • Mokuba has a cute little suit and vest
  • Turns out the rules in card games are optional, and you can summon whichever monsters you like
  • Yugi’s eyes are still huge but are a bit more square–he’s growing older!!!
  • Kaiba never… technically loses a duel this movie.
  • Also Kaiba defeats your pathetic magic with TECHNOLOGY!
  • seriously Kaiba is a gold mine
  • “You think you can defeat me with fruit!?”
  • Kaiba’s puffy sleeves of his battle city trenchcoat hold a piece of his new DUEL DISK SYSTEM
  • The fangirl sitting next to me was squealing about her ships when the characters did anything to hint at it (it was quite fun, seeing as I was at the movies alone–we briefly bonded in the dark theater)
  • Obelisk the Tormentor shows up once. 
  • Once.
  • “Ah but he’s not a monster. He’s a god.” And then Obelisk ignores effects targeting monster cards.
  • Yugi, while running around searching for his missing friend, says (approx.) “Man, my cardio is really bad.”
  • Kaiba sacrifices himself for Yugi holy shit
  • Buuuuuuuut as he’s disappearing he says “Bring back the Pharaoh, Yugi”
  • In fact, his entire motivation for the length of the movie is nothing but “I’m gonna duel the Pharaoh for real and I’m gonna win”
  • The antagonist attacks like 7 times on his first turn (second turn, if he was first to go)
  • There’s a nice message about not letting fear rule you, because fear leads to hate which leads to a corrupted world
  • and um
  • I need to say it
  • Kaiba um, he
  • Kaiba builds a device/tron suit to travel dimensions, uses it to travel to the afterlife(?), walks through ancient egypt in his tron suit, and goes to challenge Atem to a duel
  • Atem smiles, and the movie ends
  • Also Mokuba is in charge now
Getting a dog with Steve would include...

• Steve points out all the dogs he sees
• Like most people do with babies, he’ll make cute faces at them
• This big guy will shyly go up to people and ask “Can I pet your dog?”
• He loves when the big dogs pounce and the small dogs fit on his arm like a baby
• When you two get a dog of your own he can’t help but squeal
• He talks about them like someone would having a baby
• “I don’t care if they’re a boy or girl I just want them to be happy and healthy.”
• On the way home he holds them in his arms and calls Sam and Bucky
• He’s such a proud Papa
• So. Many. Toys.
• He spoils that puppy rotten
• He secretly feeds them table scraps and they both look guilty when you look at them
• It doesn’t matter what size they are he will get caught carrying them around
• Baby talking to the puppy and cooing them
• Names are a struggle but you two eventually come up with a compromise
• So many warm cuddles between the two of them
• Steve gets a teensy bit jealous when the puppy is loving someone more in the moment than they are him
• You reassure him they love him more because he’s their Dad
• Steve does two things when they’re asleep
• If they’re sleeping on/near either of you he takes lots of pictures and snuggles with them
• Or if they’re sleeping and he wants to play he’ll attack them with kisses until they wake up and rolls toys over to them
• There’s lots of “Steven let the dog sleep.”
• Walking to the park hand in hand with your furry baby walking ahead
• Finding any excuse to bring them everywhere
• Most of your screensavers/framed photos are of the puppy
• Dressing them up as the Avengers for Halloween and sweaters for the Holiday season
• He gives them a high voice when he talks for them
• “Uncle Tony look I’m Iron Puppy!”
• “Steve, y/n and I both agree you’re embarrassing not only yourself, but your puppy too.”
• Uncle Sammy and Uncle Bucky love them so much
• They watch them when you two are away
• “You think the dogs okay? Y/n? You think I should call to make sure the dogs okay?”
• “Steve it’s almost two in the morning, I don’t think Sam/Bucky would appreciate being woken up.”
• {You say as he dials the phone}
• Catching the puppy play with his shield on more than one occasion
• Honestly Steve turns into the cutest Dad there ever was

Harley’s reaction to Diablo’s story in the bar is really interesting. She gets really passionate and angry when she’s telling him “You own that shit.” with regard to killing children. Now, the first text that pops up during her introduction sequence describes her as an “accomplice to the murder of Robin”. With this extra bit of information, it seems to me like her impassioned speech wasn’t so much directed at Diablo, but at herself. If that’s the case, she’s definitely having a hard time coping with her involvement in Jason’s murder. Maybe she’s not as far gone as she appears to be…
