Reason 584 why I love Yang Xiao Long with all my heart is that she doesn’t know what to do with her life yet. One thing that has always bothered me about movies and novels for teenagers is that everyone seems to have this one big goal and passion in their life. The writer kid who is already running the school’s newspaper and will later of course study journalism. The science kid who is already making big inventions and will get a scholarship for some fancy university. But that is not how people work. When I graduated only very few people really knew what they wanted to do in life and all of them had multiple interests. The science kid also loved sport and music. The theatre kid was also really good at math and loved video games. 

Yang kinda represents this feeling of not having any idea where she wants her life to go, so she just rolls with what fits best at the moment. When I graduated I thought I knew what I wanted to do, but it turned out this absolutely wouldn’t have been the right choice for me. I saw so many people quit their university programme simply because it turned out it wasn’t what they wanted to do in life. That’s not failure, that’s just a normal thing that happens. 

I really love that RWBY follows characters like Weiss and Ruby who have a goal and work hard to achieve it, but also Yang whose journey is to find that goal.

Pairing: Jungkook x Reader

Genre: angst, fashion designer Jungkook AU, 

Summary:  Your life was nothing but a drag until you met Jeon Jungkook, the alluringly beautiful fashion design student who asked you to model for his upcoming runway show. Soon you find yourself pulled into his eccentric group of friends and their enticing world of fashion, sex and music, a world that may ultimately leave your heart in pieces.

Inspired by the anime/manga Paradise Kiss ♥


The day after your accidental meeting with Jungkook in the library, your brain was swamped with thoughts of him,  of that beautiful black velvet dress and the dim and dusty ex-bar that the four of them so passionately made clothes in day and night.

You could still feel the way the soft material of the dress felt against your sensitive skin, you could still remember how it had hung so luxuriously off your frame. It clung to you in all the right places giving you a flawless silhouette. 

The dress was all that was present in your mind as you had listened to the monotonous droning of your mother when she had gotten home. You don’t know why she’d been particularly bitter on this occasion, perhaps one of her friends had been boasting about all that their children had achieved. That always seemed to set her off.

You’re throwing your life away.

I pay so much for you to get a good education and you don’t appreciate it at all.

Ungrateful brat.

Those words had so frequently left your mother’s lips that they didn’t even sting anymore. The knife had been so overused, causing the silver blade to become blunt and painless. 

You thought back to the other night when you’d missed your curfew. She hadn’t cared that at least you were home safe after returning home late. In fact, the idea of your mother telling you off because she was worried about your safety seemed like a luxury to you.  But, of course, the only thing she paid mind to were your grades, what your chances of getting into a prestigious university were and whether you would do the family proud or bring them shame.

Then there was Jungkook and his friends. People that stood for the exact opposite of what you’d been taught since you were a child. They seemed so liberated compared to you, they knew what their dreams were and they fought to achieve them every day. The only dreams you had to speak of were the ones that had been pushed upon you.

But when you’d stood in front of that mirror with that flattering new haircut and that gorgeous dress wrapped around your body, you’d felt more yourself than ever. You’d felt powerful, beautiful, and most crucially, you’d felt so free.

That night, despite your mother’s obvious disappointment in you, you’d fallen asleep with a faint smile fixed upon your lips.

Different types of SMIRKS~

Ah, the smirk. Every young adult novel, teenage girl and fanfiction’s favorite and overused verb to use for a male character because a man who has that smug and infuriating smile is unbelievably attractive to the female audience for some reason.

Out of curiosity, I googled up the exact definition of the word “smirk” and they defined it as “smile in an irritatingly smug, conceited, or silly way.”

I was annoyed with how they had such a generalizing and basic description because growing up, I have seen this word used for all sorts of context and each time, there is a new, hidden meaning behind that smile/sneer/leer. 

                                                          o0o0o0o

SO HERE IS A LIST I MADE:

1) The cliche I-Am-Better-Than-You-And-I-Will-Make-Sure-You-Know-It Smirk

This smirk is the one most often used and thought of when people hear the word. You know that one person you’re competing with whether it be sports, exam scores, martial arts, etc? And that one smile that shows that they know they’re just better, smarter and more skilled than you in every way? That is smirk number 1 right there.

2) The I-Am-A-Sassy-And-Snarky-Bastard Smirk

You see that annoying and utterly majestic guy sitting in front of you? Maybe a thought crossed his mind or you probably said something embarrassingly stupid. Either way, he will always have a smart-ass response for you along with a sarcastic or dry smile to accompany it, knowing he had just roasted you and you need some ice for that burn. That is smirk number 2. 

3) The Amused-Half-Smile Smirk

This smirk does not necessarily have a negative connotation. You probably entertained that guy in some way that he can’t help but crack a smile of pure and genuine amusement. If not entertainment, you or someone had made that person change their opinion of you and especially in a positive manner. Somehow, smirk number 3 is just so charming and can induce stomach flutters, you really cannot get mad. 

4) The Crooked-Smile Smirk

This smirk is solely reserved for flirting and hooking up. That awkward yet cute smile he flashes you when he thinks he looks cool while trying to buy you a drink. It can show some teeth, but not an outright grin. That is smirk number 4. 

5) The I-Have-The-Upper-Hand-And-You-Fucked-Up-Smirk

You are in deep shit when you see this smirk. Unlike smirk number 1, your life is probably in danger here and you are on the losing end against a chess-master. You lost. Everything went according to his plans and now you are in the palm of his hands and at his mercy. That dangerous and sinister smile is smirk number 5.

6) The I-Am-Eye-Sexing-You-Smirk

See that dirty and perverted guy who looks like he is fucking your body by just looking at you? You see that shameless and horny smile while you receive nudes from him? This smile can either make you want to hop into bed with him or just run with goosebumps. That is smirk number 6. 

7) The I-Fucked-Up Smirk

You are fine. The guy seemingly confident and haughty is clearly not. Not when that weird and supposed smirk looks strained and he is sweating bullets. That’s right. He messed up in this game between the two of you and he is trying to put up a brave front, but failing miserably. That is smirk number 7.

8) The Cheshire-Cat-Grin Smirk

He just trolled and manipulated you real good and he is having a grand time seeing you struggle your way out of problems. He will dodge any question or demands you have and he will always have that mischievous, I-am-up-to-no-good look on his face. Overall, clearly untrustworthy. That is smirk number 8. 

9) The I-Am-About-To-Kick-Your-Ass-Real-Good Smirk

Run. You won’t get that far, but it was worth a try. Smirk number 9 is just downright full of bloodlust and murder is going to happen. 

10) The I-Am-Hot-As-Hell-And-I-Know-It Smirk

He is sexy. He knows it. He is handsome. He knows it. He has fangirls dropping to their knees at the sight of him. He knows it. If he wasn’t let’s say, a serial killer, he could have been a supermodel…and he knows it.
It’s written all over his face. That overconfident and cheeky smile is smirk number 9. 

And that wraps things up. Feel free to add more~

Hi, I’m Brandi and I’m so weak for inter-senshi bonding that I’m legitimatly enjoying a third-grade-level Sailor Moon dub novel.

Lip x Reader (Requested)

You and Lip are engaged and when you find out you’re pregnat you are scared to tell him

It’s been almost a year since you and Lip are engaged. You met him at high school when he was ‘’dating’’ Karen.

When you first saw him you were training for a competition and he was staring at you all the time which made you smile. Back then you were a year younger and everything was like a teenage novel until that girl Karen got pregnant and everyone, including yourself though it was his.

He was devasted when they discovered it wasn’t and when she left. By that time you and him had become something like friends, but you didn’t want to be just friends with him, you wished he fell in love with you and it became true months later.

When he entered college you tried to stay in contact with him, but it was quiet difficult. For some time you though he was seeing someone and you started a fight with him that weirdly ended with him giving you a ring tab from a beer can.

And now you were almost crying in the bathroom because you were pregnant and scared about his reaction. You were there the last time something like this happended, he told you what Fiona said to him and you didn’t want to give them any problems. You weren’t even sure what you wanted to do with your life and now you were going to have to think about the little person you were carrying.

The only thing that scared you the most was if what is Lip going to say.

‘’What if he doesn’t want me anymore?’’

- Hey Y/N What is taking you so long?- you heard him calling for you from downstairs.

- Just a minute!- you shouted trying to keep yourself together.

‘’How am I going to tell him?’’ ‘’What if I just get an abortion and I don’t ever tell him?’’ ‘’No. I don’t have the courage. Or the money’’

You washed your face and took a deep breath before going downstairs forgetting your pregnancy test in the bathroom.

.

.

.

You came back to the house four hours later because you weren’t feeling good. 

- Are you sure you are Ok?- he asked you holding one of your hands.

- Yes. It’s just that I might have eatten something bad.- you answered smiling.

- Why didn’t you tell me!?- Fiona and the others came to us all smiling.

- What are you talking about?- said Lip very confused.

You suddenly remembered about the test you forgot in he bathroom and your face changed from happy to scared in a second. Fiona and the others noticed about that.

- Please let me tell him.- you said nervous.

- What is happening?- his face was all confused and worried.

- We have to talk.- you realized how bad it sounded the moment his lips started to shake.- Oh my god! I’m not breaking up with you.

- Oh, thank god. I was about to have a heart attack.-

- The thing I want to tell you about is very complicated. I’ll understand if you don’t want to…

- What?

- I’m…- you took a deep breath before telling him.- I’m pregnant and it’s yours.


.

.

.

- Don’ get up. I’ll go. You just have to relax.- he said running to the kitchen.

- Oh my lord, Lip. I’m just pregnant, you don’t have to bring me everything.- at first you loved this treat he gave you, but with time it was getting quit annoying.- You just go to class already and leave me here for christ sake.

- No. What if something happened when Im not here? Who is going to bring you water?

- Lip! If you don’t go to class right now I might slap you in the face for getting on my nerves.- you said pushing him outside.- Go to class!

‘’If he was protective before, now is even more’’



I hope you like it, love.

I didn’t want it to be to short or to long, but I think it’s nice and I hope I get more requests for Shameless now that season 7 is about to start

You stared out your bedroom window as the sun started to rise and illuminate the previously nightly black sky with warm tones of yellow, orange and pink. After Jimin had called you, you couldn’t get a hold of any more sleep that night, but still there was a feeling of proudness lingering in your chest. Despite not being able to fully ignore his call, you still managed to say ‘No’ to coming over to his dorm.

It’s something he’d frequently do, call you at random times of the day, more in the early hours of the morning than when it was actually mundane. You guessed that he probably had no other mindless toy, that would willingly get up and come over at 4am when it was class the next morning. But what can you say, you’d already lost count over how many times you sneaked out of your dorm, trying not to wake your roommates, who were already hating the fact that you were still wasting your time on someone like Jimin, and quickly ran across the campus just to see him.

Him.

dragoonkai  asked:

What really determines a Young adult story? I always thought my story would fall under the YA category because my characters were teenagers. But the more I worked in it, the more I wanted to make my characters older and noe they're in their early/mid 20s. For me it bring a love story made more sense since my characters could be more mature and ready for "true love". So now that my character ate older, is it still considered a YA story? What makes a YA story one? Thanks in advance :D

Classifying Novels - Young Adult

Awesome, I get to share another library anecdote :)

Because I spend 40 hours a week at the library for work, I basically never buy books anymore. I get all my books from the library. What this means is that every book I read has a call number on the spine so that I know exactly what I’m reading: fiction, non-fiction, YA, juvenile, sci-fi, mystery and so on and so forth. While I’m not one of the talented staffers that catalogs these books, I have learned some surprising lessons that I’ll share with you. 

1) Are all novels with teenaged protagonists YA novels?

Not necessarily. The Lovely Bones is narrated by 14-year-old Susie Salmon and is largely cataloged as adult fiction in libraries. 

2) Dystopian novels are always YA, right?

Not necessarily. The dystopian series Red Rising is largely cataloged as adult fiction in libraries. 

3) Does “mature content” only belong in adult fiction?

Not necessarily. While controversial, the House of Night series by P.C. Cast contains explicit material that may be considered too mature for some readers, yet it’s largely cataloged as YA fiction in libraries. 

Whether something is YA or not is dependent on how the publisher markets the book, how the literary community promotes the book, how libraries catalog the book, and how audiences receive the book. But here are some general rules of thumb when it comes to determining if your story is YA.

  • Teenaged Protagonists

I just made a point that adult fiction can have teenaged protagonists, but the inverse of this is most often not true. YA fiction should have YA protagonists, meaning that the main cast of characters should be teenagers. The idea of the YA novel is that it’s relatable to readers of the same age range, so YA novels usually deal with the same issues that the intended audience is dealing with, often in extreme circumstances. 

Can anyone relate to Katniss Everdeen? Well, no we don’t have to offer up our children for an annual tribute, but Katniss took care of her sister when her mother was unable to. She grew up in poor conditions with very little to eat. And eventually she struggles with her heart when it comes to Gale and Peeta. She struggles to understand who she is and what the right thing to do is. These are things that many teenagers can relate to. 

Generally, if the content of the novel has a significant focus on the experience of being a teenager and the struggles young adults endure as they move closer to adulthood, then it’s YA. Perhaps why The Lovely Bones is not considered YA is because the story isn’t so much about Susie’s experience as a teenager, but rather the mystery surrounding her murder and the aftermath her family faces in light of it. 

Anon, if your characters have moved beyond the teenaged years into their twenties, you may be looking at the emerging-and-not-yet-accepted genre of “New Adult” that focuses on that crucial transitionary period that twenty-somethings face as they try to discover who they are as independent, fully-functioning adults. Personally, I think the same principle applies. If you’re focusing significantly on the typical struggles of twenty-somethings, you probably have NA. If not, it’s probably just an adult novel. 

  • “True Love” Storylines

My parents met as teenagers and were happily married for twenty-five years up until my mom passed away. They had three children, one of whom will always look at their relationship as a prime example of true love. You can say that young adults lack maturity to understand true love, but I don’t think that’s the issue with young relationships. It’s not that teenagers aren’t mature enough to fall in love - it’s that they’re still finding out who they are. And it’s difficult to make room in your life for someone in such an intimate way when you’re still exploring passions and interests of your own. And furthermore, this is hardly a set rule. There are always exceptions, depending on each individual.

This is starting to sound like relationship advice, and I’m so not going there, but my point is that I’d challenge your assertion that they must be twenty to have mature relationships. It may or may not be true - depends on how you execute your love story. 

If this is your only reason for bumping up their ages, I’d think really hard on your plot arcs and make sure it’s the best decision for your story. I’m assuming that where your characters are in life affects your plot, whatever that plot is. So weigh the pros and cons and do what benefits the story overall (as well as whatever appeals to you, the author). 

  • Does is matter if it’s YA or NA or Adult or whatever?

Short answer - no. Not while you’re writing it anyway. 

Long answer - While I see the benefit of reading in your genre as a way of understanding what people expect from that genre, it becomes too much when you start to squeeze and stretch your story to fit into a particular mold. The writing process should be free form, and you should allow yourself to make moves based on your instincts and interests as opposed to what “sells” or what is often seen in a novel of a particular genre. 

My advice? Write the story. When you have a draft complete, and you’ve got a better idea of what the story looks like, you can start to contemplate what genre/age level it might fall into and adjust yourself accordingly in the rewrites/edits. 

And a final disclaimer…

These are just labels. Do adults read YA novels? Hell yes. Do teenagers read adult novels? Hell yes. People read what they want to read, regardless of how they’re labeled.

Aphrodisiac - (Negan x Female)

@This is the first fic I have ever written.Feedback is SUPER welcome. If people enjoy this, I’ll write a part 2. 

I chose the Valentine’s Day prompt from flames-bring-a-ton-of-ash’s 2k Writing Challenge. I did pick the prompt as @asshatry but I’m posting it here on my new side blog. 

I want to give a BIG THANK YOU to @my-achilles–heel for not only editing this, but for making me feel so welcome in the thirst squad. <3 You’re the best.

Warnings: Fluff and a little bit NSFW 

Synopsis: Negan wants to make her his next wife. She’s always turned him down, but now it’s Valentine’s Day and that man can be persistent…. 

I woke up that morning already in a bad mood. Maybe I had slept funny or was tossing and turning again. I wasn’t really sure. I kicked my legs over the edge of the bed and stretched, hoping the movement of my muscles would cause an overall feeling of relaxation. It did, but the feeling subsided way too quickly and I cursed softly under my breath. It was going to be a long day.

Then I remembered what day it was.

Valentine’s Day.

The dreaded, lovey-dovey holiday for all the romantic couples looking to rub it in everyone’s faces that their love is pure and strong. Bleh.

Somehow there was a silver lining to the dead coming back to life because the heart shaped candies and roses were a thing of the past. Now, holidays were a little more toned down, and I kind of preferred that.

I had been living at The Sanctuary for only a few weeks and before that, I hadn’t even known what day it was. Little things like that didn’t matter when it came to survival. But here, in this world…in his world, I could embrace those little things again. The date. The time. Being safe was a luxury that allowed attention to detail.

But there was a reason I was dreading today, and his name was Negan.
