So, I’m sooo behind my to write list and I’m so sorry! I’m having partial writer’s block and my sched is just f-ed up so yeah.
This is not a Wincest type of story, ‘kay? They’re like not blood related at all, but if this isn’t your cup of tea, just ignore it :))

Dean has always been there for you from the start, may it be the ups or the downs in your life. There has always been something electric between the two of you, ever since you were both young, that squeezing feeling in your chest when you two were close. When you reached the age where the feelings towards him became drastic, when love wasn’t just love, it became more intimate.
This just, like, randomly came to me last night, but imagine Norway and Denmark were going to get married, and Denmark says that he wants to be the one to walk down the isle, so Norway agrees, and on their wedding day Denmark walks down the isle being his adorable, little, excited, puppy self in a dress, and Norway can't help but smile because Denmark looks so ridiculous and cute in a dress, and yeah... :)
FIVE BUCKS SAYS DENMARK GETS SO EXCITED HE STUMBLES AND ALMOST FACE-PLANTS IN THE MIDDLE F THE AISLE
I need help! I'm looking for a well working cheap, like drugstore cheap, setting spray. I was using the urban decay all night one and I fell in love, but I can't afford to buy more right now! (Part 1)
If you want a really effective setting spray that you want to use AS a setting spray (i.e. - misting all over your face), I’d recommend the ones from NYX! They’re a little more heavy duty than the ELF setting spray, which you mentioned that you didn’t love. The ELF one is much better for other tasks, such as foiling eyeshadow or just creating a finished look rather than trying to keep your makeup on for longer.
NYX Matte Finish Long Lasting Setting Spray - $8
NYX has two versions - their Matte Finish Setting Spray (above) and the Dewy Finish Setting Spray. I’d say that the Matte one is definitely more along the lines of Urban Decay All Nighter. The Dewy Finish one is great if you’ve got very dry skin, or if you like a glowing complexion. The Matte Finish Setting Spray is not the best oil controlling setting spray I’ve ever tried (in comparison to expensive ones) but it works really well at keeping makeup in place and setting everything into the skin to make it look natural!
Those 'reverse flash ring' gifs are always love. I will squint past the last one because I still associated it with Eo/Wells more. But really have to say that second gif is one of my fave. Just can't stop staring. What is with that; can't even see his face, but the hand, the fingers & that move (THAT little massage move), the neck, and then having the ring just brings the moment with the perfect touch of super villainy. *speechless*
Oh, I love that scene SO much.
I mean, first of all it’s shot so beautifully. The show rarely focuses on Tom as the sexy mofo he is, but THIS scene essentially starts with the camera in his crotch, then we get this low shot that totally emphasizes how ripped he is, really showing him as a formidable physical threat.
And then the shot you mentioned, which apart from being neck porn is such an interesting directorial choice:
The fact is, this little moment, despite focusing on the Reverse Flash ring, is really NOT a moment of supervillainy. This is his moment of indecision, which for Eobard, Mr. Goal-Oriented, is unique. This is the moment he decides to go against his own best interests and jeopardize his entire 15-year plan in order to help his friends - Caitlin and Ronnie.
Sure he then rationalizes it to Gideon by saying his plan is useless if the city gets blown up, but that was literally what he was going to avert by shooting Ronnie/Martin. For him, the choice was “kill Ronnie/Martin and devastate Caitlin” or “try to save Ronnie/Martin by sending Barry, his ticket home, into the path of a nuclear blast.”
And, despite being a supervillain, he makes the heroic decision.
Zuko paused in disbelief, just staring at her wide-eyed, and stunned. He shook his head as his good eye began to water. "You… what?" he choked, weakly squeezing her hand. "Why would you? Now you're in pain… and… you risked…?" He mumbled, closing his eyes as a tear fell. Zuko knew he was dying, and he knew this could be his last moments, but this was news to him- what she gave up. "I love you, Katara… thank you… I don't know what to… I can't believe you… Katara, thank you… I just… thank you."
“I wanted to do anything I could to try and save you.” She shook her head. “I’m fine. I’m just a little sore, that’s all.” Katara moved his hair from his face, swiping it to one side. “I love you, too. I always have, and always will.” She caressed his cheek, smiling sadly at him. “You deserve to live…” Katara waited a moment before speaking once more. “The doctor and I talked on the way here and she had a good point. I really think we should call our children. They need to know what’s happening.”
I will never be over that smirk that crossed Root’s face when she said “and darlin’, you got a great shape” to Shaw in the middle of a giant gun fight. And that Shaw finally gave in and enjoyed it a little. Her tiny smile made my heart just about explode. It was a quintessential Shoot moment and I’m so glad we got one last one to savor. I will just never be over this character or relationship.
As someone hoping to eventually write at least ONE book, I'm facing a conundrum... I had something I wrote last year, ended up not liking the way I wrote it out, rewrote it for NaNoWriMo, found it more acceptable and then I just... stopped. Any tips on getting over a hurdle like that? It's not that I don't have things to write for it, just that I can't get past this one annoying point... Feel like an RPG character facing a wall and my pathway is fixed so I can't just go around it.
I’m gonna kick your ass a little bit here.
Are you writing because you want to be a writer, or do you have a story to tell? Nothing wrong with writing for the sake of writing. It’s excellent practice. But it’s not always gonna be the best motivator for getting results.
I reeeeeeally want to be able to do the splits. I’ll work at it for a while, and then forget about it, because I realize I want to do the splits only if I don’t have to work at it. Really wanting to do the splits isn’t enough. I don’t have follow-through in that area. It doesn’t hold my interest long enough to accomplish it. There’s other things in my life I’d rather be doing.
But when it comes to my comics and writing, that’s what I actually want to do. I have so many stories to tell. I have something I want to say. I am willing to work at it, even when it isn’t fun. Because it’s often not fun. There are long parts of this job that are super boring. It gets done because I don’t stop. If something isn’t working, I find a different way to do it. There’s always another way to go at a story.
So first ask yourself why you’re writing this book. If it’s for the sake of being able to say you wrote a book, then just keep typing words until you have collected a lot of them and then write “the end.” But if you’re writing the book because you have something to say, then say it. Sit down and say the thing you wanted to say. It’s hard, but again, it’s work.
If you can’t write past this one annoying point, readers are even less likely to get past that point. If you’ve written yourself into a corner, back up. Keep hitting delete until you’re at a point where a character making a different choice leads to something more interesting that you actually want to write again. You might have to abandon some of the plans you had for its future. It happens.
Your path is never fixed when it comes to writing a book, because you can literally rewrite its history. Be patient. You’re not famous yet and there’s no editors hounding you with a deadline or fans demanding the next book in the series. You haven’t published anything yet so there’s no worrying about having to retcon something. Just write your story and don’t tell yourself these hurdles can’t be overcome. Don’t let yourself make excuses like that.
