there are too many characters to tag i give up

1k follower GIVE AWAY!!!

I said I’d do a give away once I hit one thousand followers - and I did a while back, so THANK YOU! This is your chance to win some Blue exorcist stuff, as well as some random kawaii stuff too! 

MAIN PRIZE: Is this Yukio prize figure - it is in it’s box and brand new, I couldn’t get a good photo of it so I used a google picture.

Rin Okumura half age figure cooking ver! I used the stock photo for this as it hasn’t arrived in the mail yet - but don’t worry it will arrive within a few days, so plenty of time to spare!!

Ao no exorcist mini art book! (Disclaimer: It’s all written in Japanese, but its still totally cool - I actually bought one for myself too)

A sneak peak inside the mini art book:

I believe these are bookmarks? I’m unsure tbh but they pull out like strips and are laminated, so I guess thats what they are? Perfect for manga :)

Theres also a page of stickers! Featuring all of the exwires (apart from Nemu RIP - but like…um who cares about Nemu anyway), it also has a Mephisto sticker for your demonic daddy needs, and of course everyones favourite demonic cat, Kuro!

Just a few glimpses of the pages:

It also has a mini double sided poster inside:

(personally the Kyoto arc poster is my fave!)

Also you’ll receive some Yukio and Rin paper notes - I think they are meant to be used as little post it notes but they aren’t sticky, perfect for reminders!

You’ll also receive two mini figures of Yukio and Rin, a Knights of the True Cross pendent necklace, as well as the True Cross Academy logo patch (I’m unsure if it’s iron or stitch one - sorry) Also a Rin and Kuro badge set!

A closer look at the mini figures ^^^

And lastly, some Japanese/kawaii snacks! ( I believe all our suitable for vegetarians apart from the white packet which contains fish oil)

You’ll probably also find some extra cute little gifts in there too :)

Now…how you could win.

Androsphinx, or Andy for short…a character from my tea party story and one of Blooddog and it’s roommate’s neighbors! 

He’s a writer, and a bit of a shut-in. Has a picking habit which ends up becoming detrimental because of his claws, doing more damage than he might intend or notice at first. Another neighbour has a crush on him…he isn’t too keen about it. 

11 Questions Meme

**RULES **

·         Always post the rules

·         Answer the questions given by the person who tagged you

·         Write 11 questions of your own

·         Tag 11 people (or however many you want)


Tagged by the lovely @allionne , thanks for thinking of me honey! I loved your answers :D

1. What’s your favorite movie character?

Oh god.  Practically all my favourite movies are based on books, so those aren’t really MOVIE characters.  Without giving myself too much stress, and trying to stay away from the obvious MADS movies, I’m just going to say the entire cast of The Big Lebowski or basically ANY Wes Anderson movie (particularly The Royal Tenenbaums).

2. What is the most beautiful city you’ve been to?

That would have to be a toss-up between Paris and Arles (both in France).  They each were beautiful in different ways, but both were absolutely STUNNING!

3. What’s your favorite non-fiction book?

I don’t read a lot of non-fiction but I loved A Short History of Progress, which is based on a series of lectures and essays by Ronald Wright about societal collapse…a really good read, and not as depressing as it sounds!

4. What’s your favorite cocktail?

Manhattans all the way! I love one made with Canadian Rye or with Bourbon, but I like to make/order it “perfect”, which is a half/half mix of dry and sweet vermouth so it’s not too sweet :)

5. What’s your favorite inspirational quote?

To be honest, I’m not a big fan of inspirational quotes.  But I try to keep the following two thoughts from Stephen King in mind ;P

The road to hell is paved with adverbs. ― Stephen King

Sometimes you have to go on when you don’t feel like it, and sometimes you’re doing good work when it feels like all you’re managing is to shovel shit from a sitting position. ― Stephen King

6. What’s your favorite show (besides Hannibal :P)?

Haha, good thing you said BESIDES Hannibal ;P I’d have to say either Game of Thrones or The Fall…maybe…Buffy? God, I’m bad at picking favourites!

7. Who’s you’re childhood hero?

Hmmmm.  Probably Anne Rice.  Although I have my issues with her now, when I first read The Vampire Chronicles when I was about 12/13, ALL I wanted to do was write, and I thought it was amazing that she had made her life doing that and that she had taken a genre that people didn’t really respect and filled it so full of history and philosophy etc.  

8. Who is your first celebrity crush?

I was absolutely enamoured with Brad Pitt after watching Interview With The Vampire when I was a kid, but I also loved Johnny Depp after seeing Edward Scissorhands.  Not a huge fan of them now, but as a 13 year old I was love struck ;P Claire Danes was also a big crush after watching My So-called Life and Romeo and Juliette (It’s so funny to me that she’s married to Hugh Dancy now, and I JUST CAN’T EVEN!)

9. What’s your favorite hobby?

Writing.  Hands down. She’s a cruel mistress sometimes, but writing makes life worth living (seconded only by reading) :)

10. What’s the music album that helps you when you’re down?

Ha! All my favourite music isn’t exactly full of the happy :P  I guess I really love Neutral Milk Hotel’s “In The Airplane Over The Sea” and M. Ward’s “Hold Time” but believe it or not, listening to Nine Inch Nails “Downward Spiral” or “The Fragile” always really picks up my mood.

11. Do you need the sun in the summer (as in would fly into warmer areas to get more of it?)?

YES!  I don’t like it to be too hot, but I need sun to feel happy.  I love cloudy rainy days too, but I need some summer sun in there and put my brain back in order.


Ok, here are my questions for you! Because I’m lazy, I’m going to mix in some old questions with the new…

1. Favourite fantasy book? Or favourite book if fantasy it’s not your kind of thing?

2. Where do you most want to travel to?

3. A fic or story that impressed you deeply and why?

4. Favourite show character?

5. If you could only save one book in the apocalypse, what would it be?

6. If you could change one thing about yourself or the world what would it be?

7. What do you do for inspiration if you’re feeling blocked or low?

8. What would be your patronus/ dæmon / spirit animal?

9. What trait to you value in a friend more than any other?

10. A quote you always loved and want to share?

11. What is your favourite thing about yourself (don’t be shy!) XO

“Luffy?”

“Huh?”

Sabo gives a shaky smile. “L-Luffy…” his smile is flickering, and he takes a shaky breath. “I…it’s me…” a broken laugh.

Luffy slowly turns, eyes dead to the world, face dirty with caked mud and ugly bruises and drying blood. He has a black eye, and Sabo feels his body burning at the sight of him.

He’s in a battlefield–the battlefield where Ace died, Luffy died–and there’s too many dead bodies piling up and he’s holding Ace close to his chest, fingers a deep red and slick. There’s fire, ice, boiling lava in the background, and there’s too much shouting, screaming, gunshots are everywhere and steel clashing against steel.

But Sabo only sees Luffy in the middle of it all.

His baby brother wounded, dying in the inside.

“Sabo.” He says in monotone.

“Luffy…” Sabo reaches his hand out towards him, taking a step forward.

“Don’t touch me.” Luffy snarls as he takes a step back, teeth bared at him. “Don’t fucking touch me.”

He freezes, eyes widening, heart shattering. “What?”

“Where were you?” He whispers, bringing Ace’s body closer. He nuzzles his face into Ace’s hair. “Where were you when I needed you?”

Sabo feels himself breathing heavy, fingers shaking from the brute force of guilt, sorrow, hate, hate, hate

“I…Luffy, please, I’m sorry. I-I lost my memory, and, and I didn’t remember until–”

“So you forgot us?” Luffy stares right into his eyes, and Sabo’s terrified. He sees nothing but a dull blackness to them, no emotion at all, and he’s so unsure on what to do. “So we didn’t mean that much to you, after all? He didn’t mean anything to you?”

“No, I–”

“You left us.” Luffy lays down Ace’s body, and walks right over it. “Because you didn’t want to be with us, right? Because you’re one of them, and we make you look bad.”

Sabo takes steps back as the bodies pile higher, tunnel vision going blacker until it’s only Luffy and an invisible force that keeps him from shouting. He’s suddenly on his knees, and he can’t breathe, his heart hammering in his chest and there’s tears rolling down his face.

Luffy walks up to him, hand reaching out to wipe at his face with a calloused thumb. “He asked for you, Sabo. Pleaded for you to come help him.”

Sabo’s lungs are killing him, and both hands cup at his face as more tears come uncontrollably.

“Sabo,” Luffy says, perfectly in Ace’s voice, “why? Why didn’t you come for me? You promised, you promised me that you’d come help me when I asked. Where were you? I believed in you. I trusted you.” There’s tears coming from Luffy’s eyes, too. “I loved you.” He whispers, and he doesn’t hear what he says anymore despite his lips moving, because there’s arms reaching at him, pulling at him and Luffy’s standing there, frowning.

Sabo screams then, arms and legs straining to break free, and he manages to get one arm out, reaching for Luffy. “Luffy! Please! Please! I’m sorry!” he can’t see with all the tears and hands in his eyes, but Luffy stares right back at him as more arms pull him under, at his legs, to his chest, until only his eyes and arm are visible to him. “Luffy!”

His eyes widen when Luffy crouches before him, and smiles, a finger to his lips. “Don’t tell my brother, okay, Sabo?” He hears Ace saying, and he’s engulfed in darkness, hands closing over his eyes.

..

Sabo finds himself waking up in a cold sweat and screaming at the top of his lungs.

The Reason I love Archie Andrews

Archie is actually one of my favourite characters on Riverdale, and I’m going to explain to you why that is. I know you’re not asking, and you might not care - but conversely, I really wish I didn’t have to see Archie hate in the Archie Andrews tag, yet my brain was unfortunately fried a bit today by having to read pure stupidity. Instead of totally whining about it though, I figured I would bring some positive thoughts into the tag and remind all of the like minded Archie fans why he’s great :)

Keep reading

Okay so, anyone who knows me knows that I love the Pendulum Arc of Bleach so, of course, it’s one of the few volumes I own

In the back of the volume, they have the results of the fourth Bleach Popularity Poll

Pretty normal, right?

I just about lost it when I saw the rest of the results:

These are the ones that got 42 votes or less.  People actually voted for these:

And stuff that I couldn’t edit right like “The dried persimmon Gin gave Rangiku”, “The chocolate Nanao tried to give Shunsui”, “Yoruichi in Kiyone Kotetsu’s imagination”, “The blood Ukitake spits out” and “The sixth grader who beat up Karin”

People actually voted for these

This is now the best volume ever

ship: iwaoi fandom: haikyuu!! —♛—

— iwaizumi. he moves completely on instinct one day, pulling oikawa close. he presses his lips towards oikawa’s. each movement is gentle, holding each other like they were holding the whole world in their hands. fragile, yet so tragically beautiful.

— oikawa. sometimes iwaizumi has his distracted days where he can’t concentrate on anything. once, oikawa was trying to cheer up the male, casually letting the confession slip out. needless to say, iwaizumi was even more flustered and distracted.

— all the time since they fight over every little petty thing. “trashykawa the dustbin looks better here” “wth iwa-chan you can’t just change my home design” “shut up trashykawa” “ SO rude, iwa-chan!”

— oikawa because he loves playing with iwaizumi’s hair, his fingers fiddling with iwaizumi’s locks. iwaizumi pretends to get annoyed but secretly loves it.

— iwa-chan and trashykawa usually. sometimes, iwaizumi lets pet names slip out in public (which matt-sun will never stop teasing about). in bed, oikawa occasionally calls iwaizumi ‘hajime’, which drives him crazy.

— iwaizumi is a surprisingly good chef. according to oikawa, he makes the best ramen. oikawa however, shouldn’t be allowed in a kitchen. ever.

— these two will never admit it but they both love kpop? they know every word of ‘overdose’ by exo. just saying.

— oikawa. contrary to his usual don’t give a shit attitude, he remembers every little thing they have done together. the day they started holding hands. when they met. when they fell in love. all that stuff. iwaizumi can’t even remember is own birthday, on the other hand. sometimes oikawa has to remind him.

— other than playing volleyball, these two nerds always do old-fashioned things. they would go to quiet diners, drive-in movies or just have a picnic together.

— iwaizumi, probably. he has to take charge most of the time, and lets just say oikawa loves iwaizumi’s dominance.

— oikawa would plan something for weeks, getting tons of people involved and even trying to find the balloons that would match iwaizumi’s eyes. however, at the last possible second, he stutters and isn’t able to propose properly. iwaizumi instead goes, “you’re such a dork you know? i guess i must have horrible luck, because i’m going to be married to you.”

— too much cake, so many guests, lots of fun and probably have a dorky theme (guests all show up dressed up as starwars characters) and the two were either over-prepared or underprepared and will probably still slay either way.

— four. two girls and two boys, and they love their children so much. they always dote on their children, iwaizumi gives in really easily because he literally melts at the sight of the eyes of his children.

tagged by @almost-annette - thank-you! <3

1) How many works in progress to do you currently have in progress?

uhhhh…two that have been partially published. (both graves/credence) the lighthouse keeper au (that is just not…happening, right now) and the epistolary fic i am writing with my lovely collaborator, @almost-annette

i’ve started an epilogue for my noir AU, and plans for a multi-chaptered sequel. and i signed up for a the man from u.n.c.l.e. gift exchange so that’s in the planning stages, too. then there are lots of other little bits and pieces i’ve started and may finish, some day.

2) Do you/would you write fan fiction?

i only write fan fic. ha. i would like to write original fic, again, one day but i’m not particularly excited about any ideas i have in that regard.

3) Do you prefer paper books or ebooks?

paper.

4) When did you start writing?

i’ve always written in some form or another, on and off (including non-fiction type stuff with blogging and movie ‘reviews’). but it wasn’t until may last year that i started writing regularly, after i published my first napollya fic. and i really haven’t stopped since then!

5) Do you have someone you trust that you share your work with?

yes, a few!

6) Where is your favourite place to write?

slumped on my couch

7) Favourite childhood book?

oh, i don’t know. my mum thinks i was a big reader as a child but honestly, compared to other people, i really wasn’t. i was SUPER into the sweet valley high secret diary books (only those, for some reason) in later childhood. maybe the secret garden?

8) Writing for fun or writing for publication?

fun!

9) Pen and paper or computer?

pen and paper for notes, planning, etc., but computer for everything from the drafting process and on.

10) Have you ever taken any writing classes?

i did a short creative writing course (i started in physical classes but the lecturer was so boring i was nearly literally bored to tears, so finished online) and have done a few workshops. i suppose i wouldn’t mind taking more - i’ve got a lot to learn.

11) What inspires you to write?

sheer stubbornness ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

i haven’t checked my dash this morning so idk who’s already been tagged - except for who was tagged by @almost-annette - so @unicornmagic @pineapplebread @nettlekettle @gold-from-straw @spookypercival and anyone else who wants to do it! sorry if you’ve been tagged or i missed you or something. argh. tagging anxiety!

anonymous asked:

Do you honestly believe will we ever get a BW movie?

Well this is a question that cuts to the quick, doesn’t it?

I used to, anon. 

Back when Kevin Feige was doing the press circuit for The Dark World (a movie that had nothing to do with Natasha, mind you) I noticed that there was hardly an interview that was conducted or an event that he attended where he wasn’t asked about the possibility of a Black Widow movie. Now, there was a quote floating around at the time (I’m thinking it was from Louis D'Esposito but I’m not 100% certain on that) telling fans that if they wanted such a movie, they had to make noise, they had to let Marvel know, they had to push for it. So after seeing Feige barraged with question after question about the BW movie, I was on cloud nine. We had made our voices heard, and Marvel knew there was definite interest out there. 

But then no Black Widow movie announcement came.

Goalpost after goalpost went by. Catching Fire made a bajillion dollars soon after The Dark World’s release, dispelling once and for all the myth that female led action movies won’t make money. The time seemed ripe. Nothing happened. I was told they were waiting to see how Natasha was received in Cap 2 before making any decisions. The Winter Soldier was a huge critical and commercial success, as was Natasha in it. Nothing happened. Feige mentioned there was some development work done on a Black Widow movie and the internet exploded in excitement, article after article claiming a movie centered around Natasha as fact. People figured that if nothing else, Feige had finally painted himself into a corner. Nothing happened. We were told to wait and see how Lucy performed opening weekend, as its success would prove that Scarlett could open a movie. Lucy was number 1, beating the beefy male hero Hercules at the box office. Nothing happened. SDCC 2014 was underway, and we all waited with baited breath to see Black Widow announced (although personally, I was waiting for Black Widow and Captain Marvel). Something happened: we got an announcement for Guardians of the Galaxy 2 before the first one had even been released. But for Black Widow? Nothing happened. 

(And this is just within the last year. Let us not ignore the fact that dear Natasha could’ve had a film all the way back in phase one, if the studio had been so inclined.)

With Age of Ultron we will be on our fourth Natasha outing. Naysayers (Kevin Feige most likely among them) will cite overexposure as the reason Natasha isn’t getting a franchise at that point. I’ve already heard it said, in fact. (Let us note that at this point, Tony will have been in five movies, including three of his own, but apparently that’s neither here nor there.)

I’ve also heard that it would simply be too expensive, as Scarlett is a big name and her character doesn’t wear a mask, so they’d have to pay her a larger salary. And again, I will gesture vaguely in the direction of RDJ, his $50 million dollar paycheck, and the technology they developed so that we could see his face inside the mask and let you draw your own conclusions from there.

I expect to hear many more excuses in the future. And with each one, my hope dwindles a bit more. I’m not giving up, not by any means. I’ll be angrily posting to the ‘where is my black widow movie’ tag for many years to come, I’m sure, and every time I hear there’s a new announcement from Marvel imminent, I’ll be glued to my google alerts, waiting.

But seriously, Marvel: where the fuck is my Black Widow movie?
