that is so romantic just like a fanfic or something


You turn off your phone as you feel tears start to prick at the corners of your eyes. Deep down you felt somewhat bad about blowing up at Mark like that but you NEEDED him to know just what he did to you, intentional or not. You’ve been through a lot since Mark left for Korea and all that was made harder by the fact that the one person who you could talk to and could make it all at least a little bit better was acting like you didn’t even matter. You always felt something for Mark but it was always difficult to tell whether they were you feeling like he was like a brother to you or you having romantic feelings for him. Either way he had torn your heart apart.


Part 2

You get a text from an unknown number and it turns out to be one of the LAST people you EVER expected.

A/N: so here’s part 2. Let me know what you think!!☺ and to see part one just search You.. on my blog hehe

The Cliche Lives (Zack Taylor First Date Fluff)

PromptFic requests would you please write something where Zack is on a first date with a girl he really likes just some romantic sweet fluff.

Zack was nervous for his date with (Y/N). He sat outside Trini’s house, waiting for her to come out, so she could help him get over some butterflies. He eventually got tired of just sitting around, so he paced instead.

Finally, Trini jumped down from her window and glared at Zack. “What do you want?”

“Woah, Crazy Girl! What’s with the mean face? Can’t a guy talk to his friend without the hostility?” Zack smirked at her to piss her off.

“No, he can’t.” She started climbing the side of her house towards he window.

“Wait, wait, wait! It’s just that I have my first date with (Y/N) tonight and I’m just kind of nervous,” he admitted with a blush.

Trini gave him a blank look before she burst out laughing. “You, Zack Taylor, are having cold feet?! Oh my god, this is awesome. I have to text the others,” Trini pulled out her phone, pulling up the group chat with an evil glare.

“Trini! Come on! Help me!” Zack whined. “This date has to go well. I really like her.”

Trini rolled her eyes. “Whatever. Doesn’t matter to me. It’s not like there are many ways it could go wrong anyways. I mean, unless you decide to jump onto another speeding vehicle, I’m sure she’ll love you.” Trini actually looked pained at her own words.

Zack tilted his head and furrowed his eyebrows. “Wow… that was actually nice… I think.”

Trini shoved him. “Get the fuck out of here, douche. You have disrespected me. Leave the premises.”

Zack laughed and hopped away backwards. He spun around lazily and put his arm in the air, waving behind him. “Thanks! See you in detention tomorrow!”

Trini jumped into the air, easily reaching her window with her supernatural powers. “Good luck! Don’t choke!” And with that, Trini slammed her window shut.

Zack tripped and sighed in Trini’s general direction. He knew Trini would be able to help him. However brutal it was.

Zack arrived at (Y/N)’s house about 10 minutes later - just in time for their 7 pm date. He knocked on the door and stood back, patiently waiting for someone to answer. Luckily, it was her, so he didn’t have to talk to anyone else.

But maybe he should’ve talked to someone else first to better prepare himself because damn, she was perfect. Zack smiled brightly at her, and held out his hand as an invitation.

“Hey there, beautiful.”

She raised her eyebrow at him. “Cliche, much?” she smirked.

“Oh, uh, I- I mean, um, hi?” Zack stuttered.

She laughed and gently laid her hand in his offered one. “Getting you all flustered is fun. You’re cute when you blush.”

Zack smiled evilly. “Ah, I’ll get you back for that.”

“Later. Now, where are we going. You said dress in easy to move in clothes that are warm.”

Zack led her away from the house. “You’ll just have to see, won’t you?”

As they neared Zack’s hideout, he decided that it was a good time to blindfold  (Y/N). 

“You’re totally going to murder me out here aren’t you. So cliche, bringing me out to the dark, empty woods to slit my throat.”

“Oh, shut it. You may be the prettiest girl I’ll meet, but you’re still a pain,” Zack laughed.

They finally reached the abandoned train car of his. Zack pulled off the blindfold and outstretched his hands, internally trying to calm himself. He didn’t really know what she would think of his hideaway. He tried to gauge her reaction through her facial expressions.

“Ah, so is this your evil lair where you’ll torture and kill me?” she asked with a playful smile. She approached Zack grabbed onto his torso and spun him around. “I suppose I’ll just have to let the handsome criminal mastermind do his thing now, huh?”

Zack beamed at her. “I suppose you will,” he said as he spun with her tunelessly. Risking it, he carefully pressed his lips to (Y/N)’s. He could feel her smiling, so he held the position a bit longer, savoring the warmth. 

When he pulled away, he found her blushing and trying to hide her face. “Look who’s the flustered one now,” Zack joked. 

(Y/N) huffed, but didn’t deny it. 

“Come here. I want to show you something.” Zack took her hand and led her to the train car. He found the ladder that he used to use before he became a Power Ranger and gestured for (Y/N) to go first. She climbed the ladder while Zack naturally climbed the side of the car. They reached the top, and Zack brought her to the edge nearest to the cliff drop-off. 

He sat down and patted the spot next to him. (Y/N) sat down and linked her hand with his without hesitation. “So, what are you showing me?”

Zack let himself relax when he felt her fingers intertwine with his. “Patience.”

Slowly, the lights of Angel Grove began lighting up. One by one, streetlights lit up, the lighthouse, homes, and so on. But what Zack really wanted to show her came on last. 

“There,” he pointed to the water. Boats were passing by the docks, all lit up. The lighthouse also circled around the. The water reflected the light beautifully. It faltered once in a while with ripples. “The water never fails to amaze me.”

(Y/N) stared at the lights in awe. “I suppose cliches are your thing.”

Zack chuckled. “Wow, you never cease to amaze me.”


The two sat in silence while they watched the ships slowly float by. At some point, (Y/N)’s head rested on Zack’s shoulder and Zack’s head rested on her’s.

“Cliches are good,” she whispered.

Zack huffed in amusement. “Are they?”

“… Only with you.”

Zack felt his chest warm up. He pushed (Y/N)’s hair behind her ear and, for the second time that night, kissed her, breathed her in, smiled with her, and fell in love with her.

anonymous asked:


ooooh this will be fun and challenging! I hope I do them justice!! ; u;

  • How did they they meet?

At the skating competition (sorry I can’t remember the name or where it was :’D) where JJ stole Yuri’s gold.

  • Who developed romantic feelings first?

JJ for sure. I think JJ is the type of person who teases people he likes. :P Like teasing them is how he shows his affection to his friends and his romantic interests? But I think Yuri is so stuck in his rivalry with him and all of the unwelcome teasing from JJ that Yuri doesn’t even see him as a friend, much less someone he’s interested in until time passes lol.

That said, they were definitely friends with benefits waaaay before they were romantically together, or even calling each other friends. ;P Rivals with benefits? Frenemies with benefits? All of the above???

  • Who is their biggest “shipper?”

Mila!!! DEFINITELY MILA. She totally called it too because all Yuri talks about is JJ this JJ that JJ’s annoying JJ’s ugly JJ’s music sucks JJ’s ass looks stupid in his skating costume.

Also JJ’s fangirls ship them together and are very supportive of their relationship but I think Yuri’s fangirls get jealous and are like JJ antis or Pliroy antis something lmfao. (Christ I need a fanfic of this ASAP)

  • When did they have their first kiss and under what circumstances?

Dude it wasn’t romantic at all that I can tell you. I do like the idea of Yuri kissing JJ first though and it totally catches JJ off guard hahaha. 

Actually I think JJ is annoying Yuri more than usual and he won’t shut up Yuri is like “what can I do to make him never talk to me ever again” so he just fucking kisses him and storms away.

(spoiler: it didn’t work)

  • Who confessed their feelings first?

JJ confesses first, and Yuri immediately rejects him. Poor JJ is heatbroken but he doesn’t press the issue further but is very confused by Yuri’s shenanigans because nothing between them changes (aka they’re still friends with benefits) but Yuri just gets more tsundere?? And finally a few months down the road JJ is like “dude I can’t do this anymore I need to get over you this is making me very depressed” and Yuri just spills the news he likes him too and just never realized it.

  • What was their first official date?

JJ takes Yuri to a cat cafe. :3

  • How do they feel about double dates/group dates?

JJ loves them. Yuri hates them. Yuri puts up with them because he likes seeing JJ happy (and ngl, he likes it when JJ is like “yes yuri is mine”)

  • What do they do in their down time?

I think they are the type of couple who have separate hobbies, but do all of their hobbies together in the same room even if they aren’t talking or actively spending time together. Like Yuri will be playing video games while JJ is listening to music and it’s just a very intimate and comfortable silence they’ve got going on.

  • What was the first meeting of parents as an official couple like?

JJ’s parents *adore* Yuri and welcome him right away.

Yuri’s grandpa is super hesitant at first because unlike Mila, he doesn’t entirely get that Yuri was always bitching about JJ because he liked him the entire time so he thinks that Yuri has actually hated him this entire time and the whole thing is completely out of no where and is just very “????” about it.

But! I think Yuri tries to keep his relationship with JJ a secret from his parents but when they find out and yell at Yuri, Grandpa Plisetsky is the first one to defend them as a couple.

  • What was their first fight over and how did they get past it?

The fact that Yuri acts like they aren’t even together when they are in public together. JJ was really hurt by the fact that Yuri will even deny their relationship to people or that he’s seeing anyone and he was like “yo wtf Yuri” but in private Yuri would be all over him. And JJ was just very confused and hurt by it? Like he doesn’t wanna be Yuri’s secret shame and Yuri won’t open up about his reasoning.

But then during the height of the argument Yuri finally admits that it’s because he’s not on good terms with his parents and he wants to keep JJ out of their drama.

  • Which one is more easily made jealous?

Yuri. JJ is surprisingly chill.

  • What is their favourite thing to get to eat?

each other JJ loves to eat the sweets Yuri bakes for him. And then JJ likes to take Yuri out to a bunch of fancy restaurants because JJ can’t cook for shit.

  • Who’s the cuddly one? What their favourite cuddling position?

At first JJ is more cuddly, but then once their relationship dynamics shifts into something more romantic, Yuri ends up initiating most of the cuddles. :3 Yuri likes to sit on JJ lmao. Or lay on him. 

  • Are they hand holders?

Yes!! Especially after they go public.

  • How long do they wait before sleeping together for the first time? What’s the circumstances?

My friends they been sleeping with each other loooong before they got together lmfao. I think their first time is shortly after Yuri kisses JJ in order to get him to shut up. Yuri tells him to shut up again and JJ was just like “( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°) do you wanna kiss me again yuri” as a joke and one thing just lead to another and welp we know where this is leading.

  • Who tops?

They switch. 

  • What’s the worst first they’ve ever gotten into?

Definitely their first fight. TBH they bicker a lot but it’s just that, frienidly bickering. They rarely get into serious fights which surprises people?

  • Who does the shopping and the cooking?

They both do the shopping, bur Yuri does the cooking because Yuri refuses to die of food poisoning from JJ’s cooking lmao.

  • Which one is more organized and prone to tidiness?

Neither of them are particularly organized or super tidy, but JJ is better at keeping up with organization and tidiness than Yuri is. 

  • Who proposes?

Yuri!! And he actually tries to make it romantic too because all of their other firsts were so un-romantic but the whole thing is so comical and out of character that JJ ends up laughing the entire time lmfao.

  • Do they have joined Bachelor/Bacheloette parties or separate?

Joined I guess? I must confess I hardly know what a bachelor party is lmfao.

  • Who is the best man/maid of honour? Any other groomsmen or bridesmaids?


  • Big Ceremony or Small?

A big ceremony because JJ doesn’t know how to be small about anything.

  • Do they have a honeymoon? If so, where?  

I don’t know why but the first thought that popped into my head was “They go to Vancouver!” just because I hear really nice things about that city but I don’t actually know anything about it. :’D

  • Do they have children? How many?

I think they end up adopting 2 or 3 children and a lovely family~

zerrie/zigi VS ZIAM

I’m sure most of y’all have watched the zayn x morning mashup interview (if you haven’t, click here) and i just gotta do this, just had to, it’s just too funny i had to.

They talk about the song (IDWLF), mentions T swift and her birthday and asks if Zayn wished and all (no, because he is a ‘shit’ friend xD) and then he casually remarks about gigi which prompts the radio dj to ask him:

“Listen, for all the guys out there, how did you land her?

And of course, like given their one year plus oh so romantic relationship, hashtag goals, how she is the anchor to his anxiety woes, surely they got together in a sweet way? Surely they met at macdonalds where they lock eyes and some sort of emotions burst at the seams of their heart and neither of them can wait to tell the world–

Instead Zayn says–

 Yeah, of course he doesn’t know how are you supposed to say ‘oh it was in a little room where we signed the contract to our faketionship, or because she needs publicity sooOoOooO

I mean lowkey or private aside, ziam aside, surely you’d have the slightest inkling on how y’all got together no? Even if it’s nothing theatrical. 

But radio dj really wants to know, damn it how does he get the girl??? (Just hire a publicist) “You had to ask her out on a date so how did it start?”

I wanna know how did it start too Zayn :P 

And Zaynie, he well, he just doesn’t give a fuck–

I love how he just doesn’t even try, sounds like something I’d do too, honestly.

 I mean, AGAIN, ziam aside, wouldn’t you remember the slightest detail? Doesn’t have to be romantic it could be extremely unromantic but because yall are so in love it’s actually romantic (get my drift–clearly someone writes fanfic here coughs). I totally get it if celebrities wanna be private (hell I’ll be lowkey af), but doesn’t this: oh yeah we were having burgers and then her lips got some mayonnaise and I realized how much I wanna licked it off, so i asked her out proper– sounds a teeny better? No? Yeah I liked his answer too.

This reminds me of-

I can’t bloody find the video where he talks about how he proposed to Perrie to make gifs (sobs) but how he described it:

  • We were, watching a film in the back garden and her mum was there
  • my mum was there… 
  • Erm, my two best mates were there which was quite sick… 
  • And that’s it, and she said yeah which is quite sick! 

I swear it sounded (to me) like he literally just came up with that story on the spot HAHA (if you’ve watched the video you’d know what I’m talking about), and then there were 254372919 articles on how sweet the story was i’m like bitch where?? if anything, it was vague af lmao (but that’s how zaynie rolls and i like it)

what about this: oh yeah we were having burgers and then her lips got some mayonnaise and I realized how much I wanna lick that pair of lips forever and ever so i got on one knee and whipped out my ring–

sorry i digress



                                              MOVING ON–

With a platonic friend:

(remember this?)

stop it zayn, stop

 idk what audition he’s referring to (i dont think it’s the x factor ones cuz the first one the shoes are black and the second Li’s wearing boots so–) //  X

ah, young love :’)

Remember this iconic moment? (Then again everything is iconic with ziam tbh)

extensive display of knowledge zayn, well done indeed! i’m a shit friend, i don’t  know what the top ten most frequently played songs my closest friends listen to (fav artists/ preferred genres i can still get away with), but then again they wouldn’t know mine(!!)

You’re drooling Z, stop (actually don’t)

Here’s a good romantic story to tell next time: We were singing on stage to an arena of thousands of screaming girls and i pretty much professed my love to my boyfriend by giving him a rose…and he took it ٩(♡ε♡ )۶

It really did happen…

I live for Liam’s heart eyes really CAN SOMEBODY PLS LOOK AT ME LIKE THAT GDI

Ok so i made my point of how much fucks Zayn give (-100000) and I got a tad carried away while doing so orz. I wanted to add in a bit more zigi observations that i picked up on buuuuut ain’t nobody ruining ending this post with any sort of nonsense  ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

ITYS: 12 and 4. For the fanfic ask

4: What’s your favorite line of dialogue?

I could pick something serious, romantic, or angsty. But just for fun, I’m going with a fave humorous line of dialogue. I still smile when I think of John Watson indignantly saying to Mary, “I do not take romance lessons from Sherlock Holmes.” XD

12: What do you like least about this fic?

I feel like I fell short in some of the stuff with side characters. Like, I originally meant to do more with Kitty Riley (possibly even having her do something positive for sherlolly) seeing as she’s a big media name in the show. But I cheesed out and didn’t end up fitting it in just because it felt a bit too difficult. I also don’t like how little Mycroft was involved in the whole plot and only showed up a handful of times. Again, I felt like I was juggling a number of things and I just let that one fall. And Tom! I feel like my characterization of Tom was pretty shaky. I mean, I guess he’s mostly a blank slate since we know so little of him. But from the little we did get to see in canon, I really can’t imagine him behaving the way he did in ITYS. Even though what I did worked with the plot, it wasn’t the best quality of characterization on my part. So yeah, overall I wish the side character stuff was done better. 

Pick from these asks! :D

wellheregoes-nothing  asked:

2 & 20 from the salty asks for star wars [any movie or any media shenanigans that is your favorite]

2) Are there any popular OTPs you only BroTP?

hmmm not in star wars but in star trek - spock/kirk. i just feel like all the other romantic options are so much more interesting. kirk/bones or kirk/uhura or spock/bones or spock/uhura. spirk is just…blah tbh.

20) What is the purest ship in the fandom?

finn/poe*. ughhh theyre sooo sweet and the camaraderie is just? BEAUTIFUL. like their faces. anyway i want oscar isaac to put his tongue down john boyegas throat in HD imax in december. 

*umm also this is ignoring their usually racist depictions in fanart/fanfic

Ask me something from the Salty Ask List

Whenever I say something like “D*stiel will never happen, I wish shippers could just enjoy it in fanfic like everyone else manages to do with their ships and get the fuck over it, the fandom would be so much more pleasant,” someone always tries to clap back with “neither will S*stiel!” (and even more often they do this with W*ncest) and they’ll be all smug like they just roasted me or said something intelligent. Please show me where you got the impression that I or anyone else thinks S*stiel will ever be canon? Literally nobody who ships S*stiel expects it will ever be a canon romantic pairing on the show, that’s the whole fucking point. We don’t live in a world of delusion where the whole production of the show revolves around giving ‘hints’ about our fantasy ship, we don’t push our fantasy ship on everyone or demand that the show cater to us. It’s a fanon ship and we understand that and have no problem with that. If y’all could take some time and learn your fucking place as an audience member who does not dictate content and learn how to have a healthy, normal relationship to the media you consume, you’d be a lot happier.

la-mia-amico  asked:

Hello. I'm a huge fangirl and also a HUGE fan of your fanfics. I was wondering if I could request a Tadashi x reader story where in there's like this dance or something but then Tadashi wasn't able to come because of work but when the reader gets home, he surprises her there (it was dark but the apartment was filled with candlelights) and then they just have this incredibly romantic dance. (I'm a sucker for romance)Thanks so much for the Tadashi/Hiro feels. Please don't stop writing!

Sorry this took so long to post!  But here you go!

You walk into your boyfriend’s lab with a knock on the glass door to alert him of your presence.  He looks up and smiles when he sees you.  “Hey, Beautiful,” he greets, standing up as you walk over.  He places his hands on your hips as he leans in to kiss you.

“Hi, Tadashi,” you say to him with a smile.

“How were classes today over at USF?” he asks.

You shrug a shoulder, “School is school.  Nothing too interesting happened.  The only thing really, which is why I came over to ask you, is that my school is having a dance and I was wondering if you wanted to go.”

Tadashi raises an amused eyebrow, “Your school has dances?  I thought that whole thing ended after high school.”

You roll your eyes at him. “Normal schools have dances, Tadashi. Yours doesn’t only because everyone here is too wrapped up in their technology projects to notice that there’s still a world revolving outside their window.”

“Hey!” he protests, slightly insulted.

You laugh and cup his cheeks with your hands.  “Calm down, I’m only joking,” you pull his face down to yours to give him another kiss. “So, what do you say?” you ask.

“When is it?”

“Next Friday.”

Tadashi frowns and gives you his sad puppy look.  “(Name), I’m so sorry…”

You frown as well, “What is it?”

“Aunt Cass is going to be away next weekend and she asked me to cover the shift at the café on Friday for poetry night.”

You try not to let your disappointment show on your face, but looking up at Tadashi’s reaction, you can tell you aren’t doing a very good job.  “Oh, that’s alright.  It was just a stupid dance, anyways.” You try to wave it off.

Tadashi’s arms wrap around you as he pulls you into his chest.  “If I had any faith that Hiro could run the café for me, I’d ask, but I seriously don’t think he could do it without burning the whole place down.”

You laugh lightly, “Yeah, that’s probably not a very good idea.”

“I’ll make it up to you,” Tadashi promises.

You pull back enough to look up at him, “You don’t have to do that.  There will be other dances.”

He leans down to kiss you again, “I’m still making it up to you,” he insists.

anonymous asked:

I'm a bellarker and I actually liked clexa! It wasn't my otp, but I found it really cute. I don't want to offend your ship or make you angry in any ways with this ask, I'm just curious about your opinion: So, I follow your blog and I saw an ask saying that Bellarke becoming romantic would be not logic. Clexa became canon after the Mt Weather incident and Finn's death. Do you think that's more logical? Why did you start shipping them back then? What "convinced" you? Im just trying to understand..

 Hi! You didn’t make me angry at all, don’t worry. I’m just wondering if you maybe can send me a link to this ask you’re talking about, so I have a better idea what you’re referring to?

Alright so, how do I start? Well, first of all, Clexa is the first couple I “actively shipped”, as in, I joined a fandom for the first time. And even that wasn’t really done on purpose. I joined tumblr just because I needed to scream into the void about Clexa and Lexa specifically, because no one I knew was watching the show. How did I start shipping Clexa? Honestly, it just… happened. I’m not someone who watches a show and seeks out a couple to ship, I never did that. I watch a show and enjoy certain characters and certain relationships, and sometimes they happen to be romantic relationships. For example, I LOVE Buffy The Vampire Slayer. It’s my favorite show of all time and will always be. And in that show, I fell in love with the Buffy/Angel relationship, and the romantic aspect of it. I guess now I would call myself a Buffy/Angel shipper, but I don’t really have the shipper mentality in me? Does it make sense?

Anyway, the point is I fell in love with the characters, the chemistry they had, I found their interactions captivating, I was constantly intrigued, pulled to them, the way they clicked together, I saw something that I didn’t see in other relationships etc. etc. I know this sounds like the most generic answer possible, but it’s simply the way I felt. And it’s what happened with Clexa. Except that where in BtVS it was pretty clear that Buffy and Angel were meant to have a romantic storyline too (there’s hardly any will they/won’t they), in absolutely no way I was planning to ship Clexa. Until the second part of season 2 I wasn’t really invested in any romantic relationship. 

Take Bellarke. [Obviously, this is just my opinion and personal experience, it doesn’t and shouldn’t take anything away from your enjoyment of that relationship.] One thing not many know is that when the show aired and I watched the Pilot, I immediately dropped it because I hated it. I still do, I find that pilot just awful. I think by the end of it I wanted everyone to die (maybe not Wells but that’s it). I gave the show a second chance because one year later, I randomly ran into one of those “Top shows you’re not watching” lists and The 100 was there too. So I did some googling and while doing that, I also noticed that Bellarke seemed to be the main pairing fans were talking about. So I started the show again and fell in love with it and I grew to really adore Clarke and Bellamy’s relationship. But… I never saw it as romantic. I even tried to make myself like it that way, but they just never clicked for me under that aspect. This isn’t to say they don’t have chemistry. I would have to be blind or to simply lie to say the chemistry isn’t there. But I never felt it as romantic or sexual. Like… I even tried to read fanfics of them to see if maybe I was missing something. But especially after that experience, of reading romantic/sexual interactions between Clarke and Bellamy and finding them “off”, I realized they weren’t clicking for me at all in that sense.

Which brings me to Clexa. When Lexa first appeared in 2x06 I was immediately drawn to that character, I was mesmerized by her introduction. Then I saw her first interaction with Clarke, and I literally couldn’t take my eyes away from them. Every scene they had together was magnetic. When Lexa revealed her past with Costia in 2x09, she jumped into my list of favorite characters in the show. Not because it was revealed she is a lesbian (which was amazing for other reasons), but because of the implications of her story. I love complex female characters. Before that episode I was already intrigued by Lexa, she was smart, confident, strong, but that episode showed for the first time that she was fragile too. That her coldness vastly came from having suffered through unbearable pain, it was basically a defense mechanisms. This added so many layers to her, and I knew I had found a potential favorite. And as the show progressed I kept seeing more and more of that complexity: she is ruthless but doesn’t take joy in violence, she says she learned how to not feel anything but you can see that she feels so damn much, she wants peace but is willing to make harsh choices. It’s because she is so layered that she became my favorite. And then the show started developing her relationship with Clarke. Two strong, complex female leaders from two very different worlds with very different POVs on life who have to learn to work together and who slowly realize they have more in common than they thought. Both greatly wounded by their pasts but unable to stop feeling and loving. Learning from each other, respecting each other. Suffice to say, their interactions became the thing I was looking forward to the most each week. But I wasn’t really shipping them. If I have to pick a specific moment though, their scene together at the end of 2x10, seeing the way they were looking at each other, made me start thinking about how amazing a romance between these two could be. Their chemistry was just sizzling. But I thought it would never happen, because I thought Clarke was straight and that they would never put their lead character in a WLW relationship. I don’t need to say how ridiculously happy I was when they kissed and it was revealed that Clarke is bisexual. And how devastated I was about how they handled Lexa’s death.

Let’s talk about the “logic” aspect you were mentioning. I see Finn’s death as a “problem” only if we talk about Clarke, and by that I mean that she loved him and he died. The whole “Lexa forced Clarke to kill him” argument is just nonsense to me, and this post is long enough without me tackling that. So… I was actually glad that Clarke told Lexa she wasn’t ready to be with anyone in 2x14. It was too soon, and her reaction felt realistic. Her attraction towards Lexa was clearly there but it wasn’t the right time, she wasn’t ready to pursue a new relationship. Amazing. About Mt. Weather… look, I am an angst slut. I love intelligent angst, I love good conflicts and the journey to overcome them. So I was euphoric thinking about Clarke and Lexa’s journey in s3 to repair their relationship. And I’m not going to lie and say I was entirely pleased. I would have loved to see a slow reconciliation, I would have loved for the writers to have taken their time. But I get it wasn’t possible because they only had 7 episodes (I’m not going to talk about what they could have done differently because I would get pissed and this post would never end lol). They had Lexa make that monumental gesture of swearing fealty to Clarke and then they had Lexa’s journey in season 3 to be entirely about regaining Clarke’s trust and working towards peace, for all people. So, despite me craving for a slower build up to their love scene, I find that their reconciliation made sense.

I don’t know what ask you’re talking about, so I’d have to read it to have a clear idea, but I’ll try to answer anyway. I told you how I feel about Bellarke. It’s a personal opinion. I don’t see any romance or sexual chemistry there, but I do love their friendship and partnership. I’ve often said that it’s one of the core relationship of this show. I think that it’s rare to see on television a realistic, complex, well developed friendship between an attractive male and a female that also happen to be the leads of a show. It’s way rarer than any romantic pairing of that kind, and it’s one of the things I love about them. When I say that I see them as platonic, I don’t mean it as an insult. I firmly believe that platonic relationships are just as important as romantic, and one as rare as Bellamy and Clarke’s in particular. I think that a romantic storyline would take away what is special about that relationship. But apart from that, talking about “logic”. By sticking to canon, one of the reasons Bellamy did what he did in season 3 was his pain and guilt about losing Gina. Yes, the writers treated that character as nothing more than a tool to “fridge” to give Bellamy an additional justification to side with Pike, but it’s clear that their bond was real. Clarke… Clarke had to kill Finn, and lost Lexa right after their happiest moment, and had to abruptly say goodbye to her again in the CoL, right after telling her she loved her. These characters are scarred. They are in pain, they have PTSD, they are grieving. That’s why I think a new relationship (not necessarily just between Clarke and Bellamy but in general) so soon would be illogical. They need time to process the traumas they went through, their losses. They need to properly deal with them before even thinking about romantically moving on. I’m going to mention BtVS again. After her relationship with Angel ends, Buffy gets together with Riley. And you can’t say that there’s anything wrong there. He loves her, he’s a nice guy, he wants to do what’s right. But we never feel the spark that was there with Angel. And it’s done on purpose. Because Buffy truly tries to make herself feel for Riley the same things he felt for Angel, but it’s not possible.

Now, that’s not to say that Clarke should grieve forever. I’m absolutely not opposed to the concept of moving on and learning to love again. Hell, one of Lexa’s main aspects is exactly this. But I think it would be absolutely wrong to do it so quickly, and especially with one of the most interesting and rare relationships we have. And of course this doesn’t mean that I need a season of Clarke doing nothing but grieving. The pace of this show is insane, and they have HUGE problems to think about. But really, would it be a crime to have these characters be single for a season? To give them time to grow individually? To have them properly face their unresolved feelings and grief during a quiet moment? I don’t think so.

So well… this is my long long answer. It’s probably confusing as hell, but I hope this helped lol, and sorry I couldn’t keep it shorter. If you have other questions or curiosity please don’t hesitate to ask :)

anonymous asked:

Question - which you don't have to answer - would you be interested in talking abt *how* you write? More specifically I guess how you outline/plan your fics; esp world ain't wide enough. You kind of are the president of Unrequited Pining, but how you managed to drag it out for 16 chapters and make it both the familiar rhythm of pining fic and also emotionally refreshing is beyond me. I really love ur fics and want to learn from them but am bad at understanding why what I'm reading works so well?

hi! thanks so much! i assume you mean world ain’t ready although oh man a hamilton crossover would be wild. all i know for sure is that hercules mulligan is DEFINITELY the straight guy in lavender jeans who makes inexplicable mix cds and mysteriously always knows the hot gossip.

anyway i’m gonna try to be helpful here although honestly it would be disingenuous for me to present myself as an authority on plotting. w.a.r. was the first fanfic i ever started with any serious intent of finishing, and prior to then, plot was by far the thing i struggled with most. i think the longest piece of original fiction i had ever even finished was maybe fifteen pages. in college i majored in creative writing but with a focus on creative nonfiction, because my main goal at the time was to do david sedaris-style comic essays but also in part because i could never keep fiction projects going for very long and it made me feel like a phony, like i didn’t deserve to call myself a writer

(a feeling i had all the way through college and still have now sometimes but that’s its own whole can of fish)

so anyway then i graduated in the middle of a recession with a creative writing degree and had some real rough years, until i was just like fuck it, fuck trying to make something deep or literary i’m gonna think about all the elements i love reading in fanfics and i’m gonna write the most self-indulgent fic in the entire goddamn world 

i wrote the first few scenes with no real plan for where it was going and to give you an idea of how little i knew i DECIDED ON FAKE DATING IN PART BECAUSE I HONESTLY THOUGHT THAT WAS GOING TO BE THE MOST EFFICIENT WAY TO GET THEM TOGETHER

i was like, ‘man who knows when i’ll ever write another fanfic, this is probably the only one i’ll ever really do so let’s try to make this as easy on myself as possible’

Guys I said I was going to do it........

All this talk about season 4 and bellarke and a kabby wedding…. I just couldn’t help myself.

Fair warning- this is 90% bellarke.  It’s also ridiculously fluffy and has absolutely zero plot.  Just romantic, slow burn, season 4 wishlist, fun.  Enjoy the extra-ness.

Something to Celebrate

For one enchanted evening, Arkadia had been transformed.  Not in appearance.  There were no colourful banners, no pretty, delicate lights, no extravagantly decorated tables.  Arkadia looked ever the same.  But it felt different.

For one day and night, there was only cheer and excitement throughout the camp.  The jovial energy contagious, catching from person to person until the entire camp was buzzing.   For one day and night, the people of Arkadia put away their troubles to celebrate.  For a wedding was to take place.

I don’t get ship hate.

Like, I have a lot of ships that annoy me, make me groan every time I see them on-screen or on my dash, there are even ships that gross me out but you wanna know what I do? I scroll past them. 

If it seriously bothers me I blacklist them so I can forget they exist. Download Tumblr Savior blacklist the ship tag and all variations of it and move along, don’t go harassing people, trashing the fanart and fanfics they put hours into just because they like something you don’t. 

Ships make us happy, I know yours make you happy, so don’t ruin someone else’s happiness just because you think person X belongs with person Y or that person Z is -insert sexuality- / -insert romantic orientation- while someone else doesn’t. Not everyone is going to agree with you, just like you’re not going to agree with everyone.

Ship and let ship, guys.

Hey, Saz. About Cas, I want to know when did he become your favorite? In fact, can we all talk about this? For me it was this blog called wtffanfition. The Cas in those fics made me fall in love with the character.

Hey Pime! Well, for me, Cas became my fave here:

Originally posted by gercekustuedebiyati

He walked into that barn and just like Dean I was a gonna from that moment. He stole my heart and my soul (again just like Dean) and from then on I belonged to him.

I wasn’t in fandom at the time. This was summer 2014 and I delved into supernatural headfirst knowing nothing other than what my friend who watched had told me “Its about two really hot really tall guys who kill all those vampires and monsters and there is no romance so you will love it.” (I was just out of a relationship and wanted something with NO romantic story line… ironic seeing as it led me to destiel). I watched the first 3 seasons and yeah, I enjoyed it, but I could never decide which Winchester I preferred… Sam was more my type, but Dean grew on me as the seasons went on (didn’t like him at first) So as much as I liked both of them I wasn’t obsessed with either of them. Then Cas showed up. 

I made it all the way to the season 9 finale without exploring online communities or fandom or fanfic (I knew nothing about any of them). I already shipped destiel. I picked up on it at first when we saw Cas’ reaction to Dean kissing Anna in season 4. My mind tried to justify it by thinking “Maybe Cas is in love with Anna?” but I laughed at myself for considering either option. When I reached 6x20 (only about a week later) I was adamant destiel was real (not that I called it destiel at the time) and I desperately wanted Castiel to find happiness… and his happiness was Dean. 

So when I then started exploring fandom and saw all the spec and fanfic I was immediately drawn to all things Cas. He became my favourite character without any fandom or online influence. I just fell in love with him (just like Dean did).

I haven’t heard of that blog. Got any fic recs from it?

Hey TAU fans, it’s time for another event!

The whole month of February is going to be a Valentines celebration - and in honor of one of the most important themes of the AU, the focus is going to be on platonic, familial, and other non-romantic, non-sexual love and friendships. This isn’t limited specifically to characters who are asexual/aromantic, but rather the relationships themselves that all sorts of characters can share together.

The only deadline is the end of February. This isn’t a contest or competition, this is a time to just celebrate something beautiful together as a fandom - as one big family!

So what can you do to contribute? Anything at all! There is no limit to what you can do to express what these themes mean to you. Fanfics, drabbles, drawings, music playlists, clay sculptures, or just a little thoughtful post you’d like to share with the rest of the TAU family. A whole comic book or ten words, everything is welcome!

Just remember to tag your contributions as #TAU Valentines 2016 so we can reblog your content accordingly.

To recap:

  • Deadline is February 29th
  • Theme is non-sexual, non-romantic love in any form
  • Tag your contributions as #TAU Valentines 2016
  • No limitations on what you want to make!
10 fanfics that stayed with me

I was tagged by a-compass-for-his-ship and stylesinaflowercrown

haha i am very excited about doing this because i love fanfic so much. here are the first 10 i thought of: 

  1. TIF by mdasch and everydayslike - I know everyone always talks about it, but it’s really a great fic.  plus, when 100percentsassy and i first got into the fandom we had this weird idea that we only wanted to read canon fics (lol forever at us, it seems so absurd now)  anyway this was one of the first AUs I read and holy shit. i used to get overwhelmed at strange times just thinking of it.
  2. Thought The Song was Sung by 100percentsassy - haha speaking of Lexy! I love all of Lexy’s writing, but this story especially wonderful because it’s a super great fanfic premise, famous!harry and regular!louis meet on an online dating website, but it also has such an emotional pull to it.  The characters feel immediately real and you care about them a lot!! Lexy is very good at that. (ok also we came up with the idea of the fic at a shopko in green bay together AND she used excerpts from my embarrassing high school fanfics about me and orlando bloom in it, so haha really this is about me!!)
  3. you are my favorite place by soleilouis - i love the tone of this fic and the louis characterization. I’ve reread it a ton of times. the first phone call between harry and louis is fanfic GOLD!!!!!!!! 
  4. ain’t had none like you in a while by istajmaal - this is a lot of smut and it’s great smut. but what i really love about it is the way the author gives just the right amount of information about Harry and Louis’s relationship in the present and also about their future selves.  it’s the kind of thing where a single sentence will reveal a little info tidbit and in my mind i’m like “TELL ME EVERYTHING!!!! PLEASE! MORE!!!” but really i want to fill in the blanks myself as a reader. the author balances it so well and i’m so impressed by it. it makes me want read the story again and again.
  5. Pull Me Under by zarah5 - I read this as a wip and loved reading it as one.  Lexy and I would send each other tons of emails discussing what we thought was going to happen while waiting for the next installment.  I like it how zarah’s long fics like this tend to become fandom events of a sort in that way.  it makes me love the internet so much. it’s great when the dark period of a fanfic has a perfectly executed resolution and your brain and heart feel healed. ahaha that sounds pretty ridiculous but i’m being serious. 
  6. The Bachelor by mylifeslibrary - this fic was taken down from ao3 and it makes me so sad. this was another one of the first AUs i read, probably early 2013. and  i just remember reading lines in it about the state of harry’s heart and realizing like HARRY’S HEART IS SO IMPORTANT TO ME! ahaha and it still is. anyway, the author did an excellent job with the characterizations. harry’s heart felt real. 
  7. The Dreams That You Wish by Keep_Calm_And_Read_Fic - I like the romantic comedy tone of this and how the angst still hits really hard. but especially i loved how the character druscilla was developed in it. yay original lady characters!!
  8. But If You Close Your Eyes Does it Almost Feel by pukeandcry - this is a marcel fic. i love marcel SO MUCH and i love this fic. suddenly veronica is there too and it’s the greatest. having this fic exist is basically a fanfic dream come true for me. I reread it a lot. 
  9. We’re All Stars Now by galaxy_soup - there is just something about famous!harry and regular!louis that gets me!!!  Sometimes Lexy and I just start talking about how much Harry wanted Louis in this fic and then i have to go reread practically the whole thing.
  10. Butterfly Gun by Eravain -  this is still a wip. but god, it’s soooo emotional and so great and i think about it a lot. the setting and atmosphere are so well done. it’s the good kind of heartache!!!!!!!!!!!!

i’m tagging 100percentsassy and 1diamondinthesun

Thank you to everyone who helped me with ideas and excitement!

i need a flashback in which Bellamy (b/c he was a janitor) is cleaning out the cell blocks on the Ark and he’s told to erase all of Clarke’s drawings from the cell walls and floor, and he just looks in awe at her drawings, touching them, smiling at some, viewing them with curiosity. 

He erases them, because he has to, but he still keeps one (maybe the one of the night sky and the ground) and puts the bed over it so the guards don’t know. Then, he leaves some art supplies for this artistic prisoner he admires but doesn’t know who they are, but he leaves those supplies in the hope that this unknown person finds solace in them. 

I need something like this eventually. I really hope the show does it, and they do it at a perfectly poignant time that makes us all want to cry until season 5. 

If I had time to write fanfiction, I would, but I would turn into a romantic sap and wouldn’t be able to respect myself (it’s just how I roll, peeps). lol.

when i read Dean or Cas all the other “baby” in a destiel fic I always switch it to “dude” or “buddy” so it seems more romantic, especially if it’s Dean. The word “baby” just totally takes me out of it every time cause it’s just not something they would call each other imo
