tangents

every animorphs book
  • chapter 1: my name is jake. I can't tell you my real name, because I'm the leader of a special group of kids... we're called the Animorphs. Because we morph into animals and fight aliens.
  • chapter 16: 'god, please don't do this,' i begged on my knees. Visser Three had all of my loved ones hanging from his claws in his multi-armed alien morph and was slowly squeezing the life out of them. 'you must either choose them, jake, or the rest of your planet.' i couldn't take it. i started to morph into a cockroach.
  • chapter 23: as i felt my own brain slither down my throat and into my torso to reform into my digestive system, my bones also began to dissolve into dust inside my skin. my eyes shrunk back into my skull and i could see into eternity- i could see my own mind, taken over by the yeerk. i had already taken my last breath as a free creature, now i saw my last vision as a being of this dimension. suddenly, i was gone. and my parents would never even know i had died. was saving the world worth this? i wondered, if anyone on this planet could be forced to prioritize one life over another, what choice would they make? how can any decision be right, or wrong? i closed my mind off, and fell into eternal sleep, my last echoes of thought being of how humanity continued to live on, but not truly alive.
  • chapter 26: 'hey, bro, wanna go to mc d's and grab some fries?' marco asked, riding by on his skateboard. 'yeah, that'd be totally radical!' i answered, whipping out my own razor scooter. as i pulled a nasty kickflip, i felt eyes watching me. turning around, i saw my own dog, and thought of the horrible truth only i knew. we went to the mall to get big macs. it was a good day to not be dead.

Ya know what I love about Logan’s character that I don’t think we talk enough about?? The fact that he doesn’t bash modern slang terms. Like so many times the smart character™ is like “I’m too educated to use your silly new “words” because they’re all made up,” but Thomas (and/or Joan) decided not to do that?? Logan knows that language is fluid and ever changing and not only respects them but tries to learn them too. Even though he struggles to use them he wants to know how to because he’s Logic and he wants learn and expand his knowledge instead of keeping it steadfast.

Ravenclaw Headcanon

Sometimes, usually when there’s mostly first years around, and the riddle the eagle asks if really difficult, the older ravenclaws will just start talking about Voldemort. They start asking the eagle knocker questions back, like “could Tom Riddle just walk in because he WAS a riddle?” Or “Was him being a riddle make a double negative at this door, because at this point all riddles are negative.” And “Is that why he became so evil? Because he couldn’t answer the riddle that was HIMSELF?” And sometimes the older students get so far fetched with their questions that the knocker just let’s them in based on their ability to expand on a small thought.

description: Two mystery students from your college run the podcast dubbed ‘mixtape.’ It’s become a sort of phenomenon around campus, listened to by almost everyone. In their most recent episode they discussed various study methods… One of them being oh so tempting.

“This week’s topic is—” Sugar started, of course only to be swiftly interrupted by the second half of the two-man show podcast that had sort of gone viral around your college campus.

But regardless of being cut short, the metallic nature of his voice still managed to worm its way directly into your chest, where it festered into something so captivating that you couldn’t help but sigh. It was cool to the touch as the syllables of his chosen words sent an intrusion of goosebumps along your arms and thighs. It had a certain gravel, a deepness that you could sometimes feel in the pit of your belly if you listened to him long enough with your eyes closed. However, more times than not, the grit would be severed with a vibrant laugh that rang so sweetly that you could feel it clamoring around your heart with giddiness on its heels.

“—Studying! So sexy, right?” Jay interjected mid-sentence, something that anyone who listened to their weekly episodes would quickly learn is a norm.

However, there were times of course where Sugar was allowed the courtesy of going off on long tangents without his friend’s interruption, and in those moments his voice was hypnotic, if you had to put it simply. It tugged you beneath the current of concentration until you were pressing the volume button on your phone to raise his vocals higher. The small hitch of his breath, or exhale against the mic when he would sigh due to the topic at hand, they made you lean in closer to the invisible man on the other side of the pre-recorded audio that filtered through your headphones.

Is it an ADHD thing to interrupt yourself and say something completely off topic based on something you see? ex: "I saw manchester by the sea the other day and it was real- THERE'S A DOG! - it was really good and..." do you get it? lol anyways I do it a lot and I don't even mean to I just blurt it out then continue my original sentence.

Yeah, that’s why there’s that stupid squirrel joke.

Honestly I don't think Jensen and Misha are social friends, just good work buddies, but they never socialize outside of work. I think Jensen like Misha, qirks and all, but he doesn't love Misha like a bestie, more like love him because he's familiar and part of the same show for almost a decade.

Well, of course you’re entitled to your opinion, but– one thing you should know is they do hang out outside of work:

They’ve gone to the race track together:

Took family vacations together

Gone out for ice cream with one another:

They’ve gone on fun little spa trips:

And after conventions, they go and hang out– looking altogether, friendly.

Not to mention, Misha was at Jensen’s wedding which sure– could just be a work-friend thing, but I know I would still want to be fairly close with someone if I was going to invite them to such a personal event.

Now, I am not arguing the fact that Jensen and Jared hang out more– of course they do. They live right beside one another, their kids go to the same school, they’ve known each other for longer than either of them have known Misha, but that still doesn’t mean that Misha cant be super close with Jensen (and Jared) as well. Those two have talked about going out to dinner, just the two of them. They’ve talked about enjoying wine together (which is not something one normally does at work).

They have spoken of times where they have long, deep, emotional talks, and how much they enjoy those moments. That’s not something I normally do with my “work buddies”.

The fact is, they are great friends (if not more), whether or not they live near each other. My best friend of over twenty years has lived in Colorado for most of that time– but that doesn’t mean I love her any less than I did the friend who lived up the road from me. I cared for them equally, we all just had different types of friendships– but that didn’t make them any less than the other.

You don’t need to think that they’re in a poly relationship– that’s a matter of opinion; but to ignore just how much they do care about one another, how much they enjoy each other’s company– to write off their very deep friendship because of some physical distance between their homes, and not as much publicized evidence as others might have, is to completely disregard and disrespect things that they’ve specifically said about each other.

Jensen being best friends with Misha doesn’t make him any less Jared’s best friend.

It just doesn’t.

I don’t know why it always has to be a competition.

Vlad sounds like such an insecure mess while at first glance everyone believes he has his shit together. Just because your a little older and a vampire doesn't mean you got it all figured out people. Anyway, have some early (is it early where you are?) thoughts from someone who's very excited to read your book soon. Until then I will keep scrolling through your blog to get me the warm feelings I need to survive my life

Vlad gets mistaken a lot for being feckless and impulsive, but hopefully the readers will be able to twig that the things that he does are coping mechanisms, and also the behaviors characteristic of someone who has been living with people who don’t recognize he needs help, or worse, actively deride him for needing help. After all, like you said, vampires are supposed to have it together, they’re always smooth and confident, they’ve had centuries to get their shit together. Not sit at their desk and bite their nails until they bleed or go on week long self destructive binges and quite literally flirt with death.

It’s probably one of my favorite moments when Nathan—who has been forced into his presence by circumstances—goes from thinking he’s just a clever but feckless pretty boy, to the slow realization that holy shit, this vampire needs a hug, he needs reassurance. So when Vlad is sitting with his head in his hands talking down at his own work (the undead talk to themselves a lot, he figures, probably because there’s been times when they’ve only had themselves to talk to) Nathan starts to interject with little things, small things, hums of approval, nodding along and the occasional “sounds good to me” because usually yes, the vampire is right, he just lives with such crushing self doubt he spends hours torturing himself before doing the thing. When that doesn’t backfire he starts doing other things, like an extra sugar in the coffee, brief little touches here and there, a hand on his shoulder, physically resisting the urge to just pick him up and squeeze some life back into him because he’s pretty much head over heels for him, but the vampire doesn’t need someone complicating his life like that, he doesn’t need one more person who wants something from him, it’d be selfish to inflict that on him. So Nathan just resigns himself to mooning over him from afar, while trying to be as good a friend as he can be because holy shit does Vlad need a friend who isn’t cruel to him. He doesn’t get it, he doesn’t understand why they’re all so mean to each other, maybe it’s a vampire thing…

Meanwhile Vlad is having an internal conniption every time the wolf so much as smiles at him because oh no, oh no, Nathan is already his secret Type, it’s not fair that he’s a good person too, this is not fair, no, why. And he feels bad, he feels bad for craving the attention, the touching, feels like a monster because clearly the werewolf is just being friendly, werewolves are notoriously tactile, it’s a pack thing and not…not that…and besides, Vlad is too needy, too clingy, no one likes that, he should, he should just…except Nathan always looks so concerned when he turns up with bloodshot eyes and the tremor in his hands, it’s selfish to worry him like that, not when Vlad is fine. I mean he’s most definitely not fine but he can pretend, he can cope, he can do this. And if it feels like he’s going to melt out of his skin whenever Nathan touches him, well that’s Vlad’s problem.

When he does meet Ursula he’s a lot more stable, he’s had time to get himself somewhat together, even if things have gone horribly wrong recently. But she still goes straight for the cuddle, still holds him a little tighter than she feels the need to with Nathan. Probably because Nathan hugs like he’s happy to see you. Vlad clings like he’s drowning and the loneliness just yawns out of him like a gulf needing to be bridged by people who aren’t afraid to build it. And she gets that, she really gets it.

Anyway, that’s enough rambling :D

I’m glad you enjoy my blog, that’s always lovely to hear. Happy scrolling <3

the first Yuuri I’ve drawn that I was ever actually happy with, and it only took me 60 pages of comics to get there

(trying to make a 4-page G-rated giveaway in time for AnimeFest… but this is a very low priority so who knows)

anyway shout out to this fictional dude for helping me feel less like a broken human

a list of how to say “i’m gay” in a bunch of languages! this is ongoing and submissions and corrections are welcome. (if adding or correcting through reblog, please do not just edit the post, as i won’t be able to see a notification and edit the original)

no derogatory terms, i try for as neutrally gendered words for gay as possible. with languages that have multiple ways to refer to the first person i try to choose the one that seems to make the most sense in casual speech.
