the quality was so terrible you have no idea

twodemigodtraveleroflorien  asked:

Two questions! A) what would be good motives for a prince villain BESIDES tragic backstory B) Any advice for writing a redemption arc?

Wow, I’m in love with this ask. Antagonist motivations? REDEMPTION ARCS? Yes please!!

Okay, so the plan is, I’m going to address the first question first and the second one second. I think that seems reasonable. This might get a little lengthy, I can feel it in the wind, so we’ll see at what point we’ll probably need a Read More.

Question A: (Princely) Villain Motivations

1. Perhaps the most obvious is, well, power. I know a lot of people get pretty tired of the whole “powerful villain wants more power/land/control/riches.” But the fact is, it makes sense, particularly for an antagonist that was raised in power. Keep in mind the kind of childhood this Prince might have had, and all the things they might have been told since they were young. Since they were a child, and during their most formative years, they were likely told time and again how it is their duty as the heir and future leader to uphold the reputation, stature, and altogether power of the entire kingdom. That’s quite a lot of pressure to be under, and it’s hard to get out from under that idea.

Now I’m caught up in the psychology of this trope so here are some points that are somewhat related.

- The first thing they have to fear is looking bad. A Prince is a public figurehead, many are looking to him. That’s a lot of people to disappoint. And when your only counsel is potentially people who are leading you askew, it’s hard to avoid counting on the wrong advice while under pressure.

- These people they could potentially disappoint are both people they personally care about (family/friends) and people that they are responsible for (the citizens)

- Particularly if it’s family applying the pressure, then this care stands to lose everything they have ever known of they try to stand for what they actually think.

2. Noble Ends: Maybe this character kind of has some good ideas or intentions, but for whatever reason, the execution is less than the best- as in, noble ends but evil means. This can take a number of forms, but often you see noble-ends/evil-means characters doing things like putting other people in danger if it means saving one specific character, etc. For every character, this can be different. This particular character is interesting because they are in a position of political and military power, meaning that things are pretty high stakes within their personal lives, the interior of the kingdom, and in their entire country’s relationship with other entire countries. I’m sort of going of the assumption here that you have an idea of the kinds of things your villain does, just not why. 

One of the most often quoted phrases I see about antagonists is that “every villain is a hero in their own minds.” Really take that into consideration for this option in particular, but really it applies to any antagonist.

3. “The Puppet King” Approach: By this I am referring to the trope where a political or powerful figure is actually just being used or manipulated by others with ill intentions. This can be the result of many things, such as straight up blackmail, or the controlling people having leverage over them (like hostages) or, if you want to connect it back to the first idea, through emotional manipulations.

- Blackmail: The controllers have something against them that, if revealed, could be disastrous for the character.

- Leverage: The controllers have something the character desperately needs or wants and are holding it over their heads.

- Emotional Manipulation: Borderline Tragic Backstory, and relating to the first idea, but the controllers could be telling the character terrible things in order to get them to do terrible things- perhaps they told them that they are useless or worthless if they don’t do these things, and this character craves the validation, attention, interaction, etc that comes with pleasing these people. 

4. “They’re Not Evil, They’re Just Misguided”:  Maybe this character is completely misinformed about the situation. This could be an elaborate manipulation on someone else’s part, or really no single person’s intention, but the product of the environment in which this character lives. It sort of ties back to “Noble ends and evil means”, except with a lot more deception and miscommunication going on. Keep in mind, they still have to make the choice to do some terrible things, so it’s not like they didn’t have bad intentions ever.

There’s also a few things you should keep in mind when writing a character like this.

First… if some of these ideas make it look like I am giving the “villain” something to be pitied, or like they have qualities or intentions that one could actually understand, or even an actual (gasp) tragic backstory, it’s because I actually am. If you want to write a good villain, and I mean a really good villain, they have to be just as complex and psychologically believable as the hero. Not only that, but it helps readers keep in mind that no one is just born with a gun in their hand and murder in their hearts. That layer of real tragedy is sometimes needed to show people that hey, this person fell real hard, and that is not just their personal tragedy, but a tragedy of the very world we all live in.

That being said, I am going to jump into my second thing to keep in mind… This villain can have understandable intentions, but that doesn’t mean that they aren’t gonna do villainous things. Make them do terrible, horrible, horrendous, awful, unforgivable things. After all, they aren’t really a “villain” if they don’t do entirely evil things sometimes. Yes, it kind of sucks that this person became this way, but now it’s a little too late. They are a threat that needs to be dealt with now, or they will only breed more tragedy. 

A villain’s “tragic backstory” only is meant to explain their actions, not to excuse them.

As for question two… I actually think I’m going to get back to you on that one. Redemption arcs deserve an entire post, because they are remarkably complex and I just can’t limit myself to only giving a handful of tips. I will be setting that post up probably later today, tomorrow at the latest.

Thanks for the questions, as always, and look for the redemption post on the horizon. 


What Is Up? (Crankgameplays)

Before I say anything else, if you enjoy this, please go follow @imaginingteamiplier because I only write for teamiplier over there. Please and thank you. ENJOY

Hey! So, I really adore Markiplier and Crankgameplays. This idea popped into my head while I was watching their videos today so please forgive the terrible quality and any other cringe-worthy anything.


You had just flown to visit your brother, Mark, in LA. You hadn’t seen him since you’d moved out of the country to go to college. The flight had been long, boring and, in complete honesty, quite nerve-racking. Now you were happy to have your feet back on solid ground. You’d rented a car and driven to Mark’s. You made sure you looked presentable and knocked on the door. The person who opened it wasn’t someone you knew personally but you’d seen him many times in your brother’s videos.

“Hi.” He said, as if he’d said it once before. Maybe he had.You felt a heat rising into your cheeks at the thought.

“Hi. Is Mark here?” You asked. Ethan looked a bit nervous, probably thinking you to be some crazed fan. You bit your lip a little nervously. “Don’t worry, I’m just a normal girl. Mark’s my brother.“ You explained. You didn’t really have proof, you hadn’t thought of anyone who didn’t know you opening Mark’s door. Luckily, before Ethan had to make a choice, a familiar face appeared.

“(Y/N)? What are you doing here?” Mark asked, is voice a blend of confusion and excitement. He quickly pulled you into a hug. You laughed a bit but did the same.

“Summer vacation! I thought I’d come to see my big brother!” You replied.Mark ushered you inside. In an instant, you gave all of your attention to Chica, petting and playing with the dog.

“Hey, Ethan, this is (Y/N).” Even though Mark was sure you knew who Ethan was, he introduced him to you as well. You smiled charmingly, shaking his hand.

“Nice to meet you. I’ve heard so much about you. Even though I’m sure Mark doesn’t talk about me much.” You say, sitting down across from where the guys had seated themselves.

You spend the next hour and a half telling Mark about your roommates and your college experiments. Ethan seemed rather intrigued, eyes locked on you with a half smile on his lips as you told of how your roommate was always bringing a new person home for the night and how you’d taken to staying with another friend to avoid the awkwardness that came with your own room.

Another while passed and Mark told you about everything that had happened since you’d last seen each other. You flicked your gaze towards the blue haired boy sitting near your brother and felt a small jolt in your stomach as your eyes met his.

You brushed off the feeling but it continued over the next few days. You and Mark had gone out, you had convinced him to spend the day with you instead of stressing over videos and everything else for the whole day.

“So, what’s going on between you and Ethan?” He asked as you ate your ice cream in a small, nearly empty park. You lifted an eyebrow, not completely sure what he meant by that. “Don’t give me that. There’s something going on.”

“Okay, maybe he’s a little cute.” You state, though your cheeks gave away just how cute you really thought he was.

“I knew you liked him! He won’t turn you down. Nobody could turn us down. We’re beautiful.” Mark teased. You rolled your eyes.

“It’s in our genes.” You joke along, casually bumping his arm so his ice cream hit the tip of his nose. He scoffed and wiped it off.

“You know, I might be super busy tonight. Maybe I’ll have to ask Ethan to keep you company while I work.” You gave Mark a cold glare.

“You wouldn’t…” You knew where this was going. Mark had finally approved of someone in your life and now he wasn’t going to let it go.

“Oh, I would.”

“Mark Edward Fischbach, no playing matchmaker for me. I’m all grown up. I can do it myself.” You argued, just like you had when you were younger.

“You can but you won’t. I have no other choice.”

When that night rolled around, Mark had locked himself away to edit his upcoming videos and left you with Ethan. You’d be lying if you said you minded. Even after the awkward first meeting, the two of you had quickly become close.

The two of you were sitting on opposite ends of the sofa, Harry Potter playing on the TV.

“Sorry about Mark making you hang out with me.” You apologized softly, reaching into the popcorn bowl between the two of you. You saw Ethan shrug a little.

“It’s fine. I really don’t mind.” He insisted. “You’re really cool.” You looked over and there was a moment when everything seemed distant. Then you were kissing him. You weren’t sure how it happened or how you were meant to react. Then it was over.

“Sorry. I don’t really know why I did that.” You looked down at anything but Ethan. You were beet red and beyond embarrassed.

“Don’t be.” Ethan tilted your chin up and smiled before quickly pressing his lips to yours again. “I don’t mind.”

You shifted to curl into his side, both of you shifting your focus back to the Golden Trio and their adventures, returning to an oddly comfortable quiet.

Maybe Mark was right. You liked him


So, that was actually awesome to write. I love these two so so much and they deserve all the joy and happiness in the world. It was a little hard to write Ethan and Mark since I’d never written them before but hopefully it’s good. Thank you so much for reading and requests are always open! -Cass


Here be CONTINUED!!!

((. My dream? Is to make as much of these in the best quality as possible for me to do it? So that Disney would notice my passion? and LEMME WORK AS A PART OF THE ANIMATORS CREW!!!
– you do realise you have barely worked with flash,right?
– you don’t know the basic things about animation you just make comics
– you haven’t even finished college and have never got to multimedia studies
Hope you enjoyed this silly lil comic and terribly sorry for the bad quality I have really limited access to making it better <8)


thegirlthatlikesasianboys  asked:

Yes, it's true. I did plagiarized your story I seriously didn't mean it. It was a dumb mistake I just didn't have any good ideas at the time and this story sounded good so posted and changed the character name I know this is a terrible excuse but I'm truely sorry, I made sure to delete the smut and honestly every other story that I've written are not by other writers, I promise you... ~Thegirlthatlikesasianboys ❤

Regardless of not having ideas, you don’t steal from someone else. Your excuse is pure bullshit, you just wanted to be recognized for writing quality fics which it seems that you’re incapable of doing so. Now I’m just being civil bc I’m not trying to ruin your day. But that’s exactly what I’m trying to do. If yo ass had any damn sense, you could’ve wrote a fic like that and CREDITED Lily. Stealing was your ‘only’ route out bc yo ‘no talent’ having ass had nothing better to do. Get all the way the fuck outta here with that shit. You lucky she won’t sue ya thieving ass.

- soul 👻

Here’s a few tips doll: there’s these things called prompts & AUs and there are multiple blogs that post and produce them to share ideas for writers who don’t have ideas. So go follow one, and give them CREDIT for THEIR ideas. Stay the fuck off of this blog and any of our sister blogs and write your own shit. Not too hard, right? I was a lot less nice when I first saw your message this morning but now I feel bad for you and your lack of uniqueness and quality, after seeing it was MULTIPLE FICS and after reading your FAKE ASS APOLOGY. Delete them all and not just Lily’s and sit the fuck down and produce your own work. 

 -Blossom 🌸

I’m sitting here, trying to think of what I should say then I realized…

you’re irrelevant, lack ingenuity, talent, and you do not deserve my time.  


In this moment I’m still far too pissed to adequately express myself without hurting your feelings as deeply as you’ve hurt me. So I’m going to come back later on and really make sure you understand what you’ve done. –Lily.

BTS as... Ouran High School: Host Club Members

Okay, so, my love for anime is profound! I honestly love it so much and I’ve been watching anime since I was a child! So here’s my first go at ‘BTS as…’ imagines. Requests are open if you want to send anything!

Believe it or not, it was a lot harder than I thought…

Mitsukuni ‘Honey’ Haninozuka

Originally posted by mitsukunis

So this one was the easiest for me? Many people forget that Honey is actually the oldest :) I admit, I thought of Tae at first because of the overloading cuteness, but I changed my mind after thinking about it and now I honestly believe that it would be Jin.

Originally posted by armygzb

So the members have said at some point that Jin is the cutest of the group. Jungkook even said that he forgets that Jin is actually older than him with the way he acts. Plus, both Honey and Jin really like food (okay, cake) and they can both cook really well. However, both of them can step up and show authority when needed. For these reasons I say Jin is like Honey. Furthermore, all the members say that Jin is actually really strong and he does work out a lot, as we all know. Honey is also surprisingly strong - his specialities being judo and karate.

Kyoya Ootori

Originally posted by tangofox

Okay so this one came to me slowly because I stuck between Suga and Rap Monster but in the end I chose Suga.

I couldn’t find a GIF of this look - (credit to owners, Sugarport)

So I choose Yoongi because him and Kyoya are both very intelligent and good at what they do. Both of them are ‘second-in-command’ in the group if you know what I mean - Rap Monster has said that Suga is the most influential member, and like Haruhi said, Kyoya is the ‘real brains behind the operation.’ Also, both of them faced doubt from other people about their abilities and have people almost telling them what to do? Like, with Kyoya, his family is constantly looking down on him and saying that he isn’t good enough and with Suga, people from Daegu told him that doing music wasn’t a good career choice and that he was going to ‘bring shame’ to his family. Both of them were told they were not good enough but both of them proved everyone else wrong. Lastly, do I really need to mention what would happen if you tried to wake any of them up? No, I didn’t think so… ;D

Takashi ‘Mori’ Morinozuka

Originally posted by kouhaiharuhi

This one was difficult because I was stuck between Rap Monster and Suga here too but yeah I chose Rap Monster for Mori.

Originally posted by ygnj

The reason why I say this is because both of them are quite mysterious, at least in my opinion. Strong and silent - both quite sexy without even trying. They are extremely protective of their friends and seem like the sort of ‘need to take care of everyone’ type of people. Although they can be seen as harsh at times, they obviously have everyone’s best interests at heart. Also, both of them are masters in their field - rapping vs kendo and this, amongst other things, brings them lot of respect from other people too.

Tamaki Suoh

Originally posted by suoh-centric

So for Tamaki, I thought a lot about his character and eventually I chose V.

Originally posted by my-fjo

Okay, bare with me, I know it can seem like a weird choice… So, of course, Tamaki is obnoxious and, no, V isn’t like that at all. But what I will say is the he seems very aware of how much love he gets. He knows just how to act to ‘get the ladies worked up’ if you know what I mean. I mean, they can both switch from intense sexy staring so just a babbling cuties in 0.002 seconds. Plus, the two of them have no problem making friends; they’re both social butterflies! Also, the other hosts think of Tamaki as the ‘idiot leader’ lolol and I am in no way calling V an idiot, trust me, but Rap Monster has called him 7th in intelligence before… besides, we all know how childish they can be.

Kaoru Hitachiin

Do you have any idea how difficult it was for me to find an appropriate GIF of him on his own without Hikaru there too? I swear to God those twins are inseparable! I had to go and screenshot this moment. Urgh, the terrible quality is killing my soul….

So we all know that both of these twins are a bit mischievous, but they aren’t exactly troublemakers or anything. And out of the two, I feel like Kaoru is the meeker one? So for that reason I chose Jimin.

Originally posted by chambers1993

Sweet and a little shy too, I feel like these two are very precious and need constant protection in a way. They put up a good front, but you can tell that both of these members feel emotions very deeply and their moods can swing quite a bit too. Of course, like V and Tamaki, both Kaoru and Jimin can immediately turn the ‘sexy’ on in no time.

Hikaru Hitachiin

Originally posted by samezukaz

So Hikaru is the braver one? Some people can even go as far as saying that he can be the cockier twin too. I don’t necessarily think Hikaru is cocky, but he definitely has more confidence. So I chose Jungkook.

Originally posted by kookie-bts

I feel like Jungkook gets mistaken as cocky a lot too and we know it isn’t true. At first, he was very shy around the other members, just like Hikaru (and Kaoru) were when they first joined the Host Club. Of course, now, Jungkook can be mischievous just like Hikaru is. I feel like both of them rather enjoy teasing the other members and although they can seem quite distant at times, they are very protective of their friends.

Haruhi Fujioka

Originally posted by tangofox

Haruhi and I are so alike in some ways, I swear to God. Anyways, this took a long time but eventually I chose J-Hope.

Originally posted by jiminb

Natural cuties with a sort of happy charm that people naturally gravitate to, I think Haruhi and J-Hope are quite similar. On the inside, however, both of them are quite serious and sometimes you can feel a sort of sadness and reservation from them. I feel like both of them can get into bad moods and quite easily get a bit annoyed with those around them if they aren’t in a good one. Of course, how can we forget the natural cute-aegyo these two seem to always exhibit.

So there we have it. BTS as Ouran High School: Host Club members. I hope you liked it, please let me know was you thought!

And when you call and need me near
Sayin’ where’d you go?
Brother I’m right here
And on those days when the sky begins to fall
You’re the blood of my blood
We can get through it all

I hate my chart and I don't have harsh 12th/Pluto/Saturn~aspects. I'm a cancer rising which means I'm shy and moody. I have retro Chiron Scorpio in 5th house->shy plus a deep wound of self-expression, Neptune in 7th-> I never accept the truth about me worship other people until I was in a relationship lately, I just know how bad it is, Saturn in Aries 10th house arise-> awkward, struggling. Not to mention my Pisces and 9th stellium. Quite useless quality in a practical world, good or bad

This whole “hate my chart” thing is so outdated and I hope you outgrow it and realize you actually have a chart that is you and fits you. We all had to grow from the idea that our charts are terrible cause we realize all of us are born with the right chart that reflects us.

It’s all out perspective and since you view yours as ugly then it will behave as one. You are a reflection of your chart and your chart is a reflection of you.

Cling Wrap

I’ve finally gotten used to living in Korea. I’m really enjoying life here. I have an amazing job and an even more amazing boyfriend, but every now and then I feel homesick. I miss my family so much, especially my little brother. We’ve never been the closest of siblings, but he’s the only one I have, and thinking back we shared a lot of good times together growing up. We talk occasionally, but it’s just not the same.

I think that because I’ve been missing my brother lately, I’ve started projecting my feelings for him onto Chenle. They’re about the same age, and even though they look nothing alike, their personalities are similar. Chenle’s still struggling to learn Korean, so he has a difficult time communicating with some of his members. Having been in his shoes myself, has only brought the two of us closer. We usually speak English together, but recently we’ve been setting up little study sessions where I help him with his Korean, and in return he teaches me Chinese.

Today I’m stopping by Chenle’s dorm to check up on him and have another tutoring session. We’re going to be reviewing household items. After greeting each other, we get to work. We decided it’d be best to begin with the kitchen. “Chenle, what are chopsticks in Korean?” I ask holding up a pair I grabbed from their drawer. He takes a little time to double check his answer before he speaks.


“Very good. What’s this?” I point to the refrigerator.

“Ummm… naeg… no it’s, uhhh… naengjang-go.”

"Yep. I can tell you’ve been practicing. Let’s see… what should I quiz you on next?” We go through all of the kitchen appliances as well as cutlery and dishware before we move onto food. “Okay, this one should be easy.” I say pointing to some pork I found in the fridge.

“Gogi.” His eyes instantly light up when he sees the meat.

"I was looking for a more specific answer, but for now I think that’s good enough.” I raid the fridge in search for another item, only to find we’ve already gone through all the food in it. “Hmmm… it looks like we’ve already covered everything in here. Why don’t we take a break?”

"Alright. Noona, want to watch a movie with me? And later I’ll teach you Chinese.”

"Sure.” The two of us lazily plop down on the sofa as we debate on what to watch. Finally we settle on some old horror movie from the 80’s that’s apparently a classic in Korea. We’re about halfway through the film, when Jae stops by.

"Hey, Chenle I wanted to see i-“ Jae immediately stops in his tracks when he sees the two of us sprawled out on the couch. “Y/N, what are you doing here?”

"I was tutoring Chenle. We just finished our review session, and we’re taking a short break before we move on to Chinese. What are you doing here?”

"Well since all of his members are promoting and Chenle is still feeling ill, I thought I’d stop by and check on him.”

"Awwwwww, babe you’re so cute.” I say pinching his cheeks, but for some weird reason he isn’t pulling away like he usually would.

"Noona! I’m hungry!” Chenle whines tugging on my sleeve to get my attention.

"Oh no, my poor baby’s hungry. What do you want noona to make you?”

"Gogi.” He replies instantly.

"You know I can’t cook meat very well. I can never tell when it’s fully cooked. What if I give you food poisoning? Plus you’re still recovering from a fever, wouldn’t you rather have soup, or maybe porridge?”

"No, I want meat.” He protests. I know I should say no, but I simply can’t just turn him down.

"I have an idea. Since chef Jae is here, and his specializes in meat, why don’t we have him cook, and the two of us can finish our movie?”

"That’s a great idea!” Chenle shouts. Awwwww, he’s so precious. I’m glad we’re able to make him feel better.

"I guess I can do that.” Jae replies in a monotone voice as he trudges to the kitchen.

While Jae is working hard preparing lunch, Chenle and I can’t stop laughing at how terrible the quality, acting, and plot of the movie are. “Hahahaha! Noona, did you see that? A seaweed monster… hahahahaha!” He really does remind me so much of my little brother. I’m really lucky I got to meet Chenle, he’s definitely helped me deal with my homesickness. He’s just such a good kid. Anyone would be proud to have him as a little brother. I smile down at him as he continues commenting on the film.

Jae has apparently mistaken my sisterly love as something more because he starts acting like a big baby as soon as we sit down to eat. I was going to take a seat by Chenle, but instead Jae forces me into the seat next to him and pulls me in until our chairs are side by side. He then throws his arm around my shoulders keeping me there. “Jae, you do realize that you need both hands to cut your food, right?”

"You can just cut it for me then baby.” He never calls by anything other than my name when we’re in public, especially in front of the younger members.

"Ummmm… alright. I can do that.”

"Noona, since your cutting up hyung’s lunch, will you cut mine too?” Chenle asks with a big smile. Who could possibly refuse him?

"Of cour-”

"No, she can’t.” Jae cuts me off, glaring intensely at Chenle before turning back in my direction. “Babe, if you cut his meat for him, he’ll never learn to do it himself.”

"I know how to use a knife.” Chenle chimes in.

"Great. Then do it yourself.” Jae shoots him a sarcastic smile. Let’s just say lunch was extremely awkward. Jae wouldn’t allow Chenle or I to get a word in, and he kept referring to me as babe or baby, at one point he even called me pumpkin. Last time I checked, I’m his girlfriend not his granddaughter. I had to cut up his food and even hold up his glass for him to drink from. Jae’s always been so independent. He’s always refused my help, but today I had to do pretty much everything for him.

After a disastrous lunch, we move back to the living room. There’s not much else to do in the empty dorm except watch tv, so that’s what we do. I sit down on the sofa, Chenle takes the seat next to me, and then Jae comes in and pretty forces himself between the two of us. “Jae, this a loveseat. It’s meant for two people. Don’t you think it’s a little cramped with all three of us sitting on it?”

"You make an excellent point princess. You’re so smart.” He says petting my head like I’m a dog. “Did you hear that Chenle? It’s a loveseat, meant for two people, lovers, which Y/N and I are, and you aren’t. Why don’t you move over to the other couch, you’re making it uncomfortable for Y/N.”

"Jae… the only person making me uncomfortable right now is you.”

"I’m sorry sweetheart. Did I not pay enough attention to you today?” Uhhhhhhhhh. He has his arm around my shoulders again. When will it end? I love Jae, and usually I love cuddling with him, but right now I just want to get as far away from him as possible. After an incredibly long and torturous half an hour, we bid Chenle goodbye.

I wait until Jae parks the car before I confront him about the day’s events. “Is there a reason you were acting like some clingy psychotic boyfriend?”

"I wasn’t acting psychotic or clingy.” Why does he have to get so defensive?

"Ohhhhh, really? Then what do you call it? Poor Chenle has been sick for the past week, and instead of helping cheer him up, you were mean to him all day. What is wrong with you?”

"What’s wrong with me? What’s wrong with you? I saw that little creep trying to hit on you the whole time we were there, and you just allowed it to happen. Don’t you think you’re being a little too nice to him? Please, tell me you don’t actually have feelings for him.”

“Jae, are you mental? Scratch that, I know you are after your behavior today. Chenle is still a child, how could you possibly think I’d be interested in him romantically? Not only would that be illegal, but I’m already dating you. Yes, I’m really starting to like Chenle and see him as a little brother, but that’s it. What the hell is going on inside that head of your’s that you’d think I’d fall for someone younger than my little brother?”

"Uhhhh… you were just being so nice to him, alright. It felt weird.” He scratches the back of his head as he stares out the window avoiding my gaze.

"I’m sorry, I didn’t realize I was supposed to be rude to him. Jae, he’s a kid. A really nice kid who’s all alone in a foreign country. I just wanted to make him feel comfortable.”

"Sorry.” He whispers.

"Wait, what? Did the Jung Jaehyun actually apologize to me for once in his life? I never thought I’d live to see the day.”

“Very funny. Let’s get inside before I lock you out.”

"Fine, but just so you know as soon as we get inside you’re going to call Chenle and apologize to him for acting like an ass all day.”

"And if I don’t?”

"If you don’t, then… no sex for two weeks.” Hahaha! I don’t think I’ve ever since him this nervous. Is he actually sweating?

"No need to be so dramatic. I’ll call him. I’ll call him right now. Just promise me you’ll never say that again.”

“nobody will love you until you love yourself” is such a hurtful and untrue concept. you have wonderful qualities and even if you can’t see them, others will. having people in your life who recognize those good qualities and radiate a positive perception of you in the interactions you have with them is so important to building self love and letting go of harmful ideas you acquired about yourself! surround yourself with people who appreciate you and love you for all that you are. try to take positive comments you receive as real reflections of how you are. even when you feel terrible about yourself, all the great things the people in your life see in you are still very much there, but self love and acceptance really can’t be found through thinking that if you can’t at this time see yourself in a caring and loving light nobody else will, because that’s just not true. your current self perception does not determine your worthiness of being loved, appreciated and cared for by others!

Someone was saying a while back that they loved Jasper because they can’t really think of any other female villains like her. There are plenty of cruel, hyper-violent, strength-obsessed male villains, but no female ones (or, at least, none that I know of). Like some of Jasper’s traits are almost unheard of in female villains! A completely unsexualised focus on her body as the locus of her strength! Muscles muscles everywhere! Her absolute adoration of the idea of violence! Like, look at her face when she’s fighting Garnet! She is definitely getting some sadistic pleasure out of the fact that she’s going to be beating someone up.

She definitely exists partially as a counterpart to Garnet – Garnet’s strength and physicality are mirrored in her. Both Garnet and Jasper smile a lot during their fight, but Garnet is joyful and purposeful because she’s just been reformed and has escaped from a seemingly hopeless situation; Jasper is excited to crush any small hope Garnet has just regained.

Where Garnet uses violence out of practicality (although not always out of necessity), Jasper uses violence out of a desire to cause pain and an enjoyment of the pain she causes. The fear and terror Jasper inspires in Lapis and Peridot as their leader is like what the respect and awe the crystal gems have for Garnet could be if taken to its extreme (and I think Secret Team is a really interesting example of that, of Garnet having to step in and let Pearl and Amethyst know that she’s not going to kill them if they fuck up. Which she does by semi-attacking them haha I seriously love Garnet!!). Jasper is such a terrifying villain though!! She is a thoroughly awful gem who has so far shown no redeeming qualities whatsoever! I love that.

And that’s kind of why I hate this idea that’s semi-popular in fandom that she’s got this really sad backstory and has all these reasons for doing all the terrible things she does because:

a. Even if she does have a super sad backstory and has all these reasons for what she does, I don’t think she can really be excused or justified. Like. Come on.

b. You don’t need to have a ‘sad’ backstory to become a villain; Jasper is a strong and powerful gem in a militaristic society that values strength and power. Her thinking is warped because she’s in such a powerful and respected position and all her violence and cruelty is rewarded. Jasper is a villain because she’s been so successful in a warped society with fucked up power structures – I think that’s a much deeper villain backstory then ‘Maybe she’s sad because of the war :(’

c. You be a complex character and still be a terrible, evil character

d. God, I just want an awful, evil female villain who didn’t have to experience some awful, traumatic event before they were able to become powerful! I’m so sick of female characters who are bad because they’re broken, instead of being bad because they’re just! Bad! People! It reminds me of Gillian Flynn saying that she wrote Gone Girl because she wanted to prove that women can be just as villainous and evil as men (although there are a lot of politics there that I don’t necessarily want to go into)

And I think, to some extent, we are already meant to feel a little sorry for Jasper at this point in the show. Malachite dragging herself into the sea is definitely a disturbing moment, and even though the crystal gems have won, it’s not presented as triumphant at all. We’re meant to view Jasper as an evil threat, but we’re also meant to recognise that Lapis’s decision to trick her into forming Malachite is self-destructive and wrong in a really creepy, visceral way – especially after the Sardonyx saga. That’s what complex morality is! Not: yeah well maybe Jasper had a really good reason for wanting to quote ‘beat [Rose Quartz] into the ground’.

Anyway I love Jasper and she is terrible and evil :)

By the Light of the Moon: The First Moon [Part One]



A surprise visit to Kyoutani yeilds even more surprises to you, his loving girlfriend, on the night of the full moon….

It’s a beautiful night. Warm and clear and so bright, you barely need the street lights which illuminate the sidewalk and your path ahead.

You hum happily, looking up at the moon, which is still rising in the sky. It’s gorgeous tonight, already round and full and dazzlingly bright. It gives a tranquil, mysterious feeling to the night, making it undeniably romantic. Better yet, the night sky was clear, and you could see more than a few stars in the rapidly deepening blue of the night’s sky. When the moon was at its peak, and the sky was at its darkest, you could only imagine how beautiful it would be.

You almost regret that Kyoutani wasn’t walking with you now. The only thing that would make this night more perfect was his fingers entwined with yours, or his arm around your waist, holding you close to him to keep him warm.

You look up at the moon again, sighing wistfully.

Under such a beautiful moon, you almost believe that this is a night where anything can happen.

Day 276 of the 365 art challenge.

Well, now it’s October, I can finally draw this silly little idea I had last month. So because it’s almost Halloween, expect more characters in costumes. I just thought with the bucket neck armour that Garrus usually has, it would be perfect for him to have a Buzz Lightyear costume. The quality is a little terrible with this because my tablet is still playing up! Hopefully I’ll get a new tablet soon, in the meantime, hope you enjoy this :)

Feel Better Hank Card Project

Remember when we created cards last year to help John Green feel better from his viral meningitis?  This time around, a terrible illness has hit Hank Green.  Hank Green has announced on his twitter that he has a Norovirus infection!

 I think that it is time again that Nerdfighteria should do something again about this Norovirus infetion, but this time for Hank.  Nerdfighter artsyandnerdy has suggested that we should all make cards for Hank.  I want to help spread her idea to make get well cards for Hank. So Nerdfighteria, let’s make a get well card for Hank.  To contribute to this, all you have to do is put the simple message on the card, Feel better Hank.  You can draw on it and be creative with it.  When you are done, post your drawing on the internet with the hashtag, #feelbetterhank and share it to the internet.

I know this picture may be terrible quality, and I apologize for that but here is the card that I made for Hank as an example:

this has nothing to do with the quality episode discussion taking place on your blog right now but i was wondering if you could pick 5-10 spn fics (any ship, or gen, etc.) and dub them the must reads for any fan which would they be?

okay this is a terrible thing to ask me because i am FANFICTION AF!!!!! i also have no idea what constitutes a “must read” because my tastes are fucking weird and i’ve been reading supernatural fic for 6 years!!!! although, ALTHOUGH, i do remember the Fandom freaking out over a couple back in 2010/2011 so i could??? rec you those??? Classic Fic??? and give you a list of my Personal Faves??? I COULD REC EVERY SINGLE FIC ON MY DELIC U SOI OUS SUSUS no no okay sorry i’m fin e
