think of all the research i have to do now

Do you understand bilingual people (this speaks specially about the one who their mother language is spanish, but I’m actually talking about all the types of bilingual people) have to study a lot to understand a lot of things in internet? Like, sometimes you need to know context, you have to research for even a joke? It’s difficult… 

Also, this is more badass… DO YOU KNOW THERE ARE KIDS WHO HAD BEEN STUDYING ENGLISH SINCE THEIR CHILDHOOD AND NOW THEY RUN BLOGS, WRITE FICTION, TRADUCE, MAKE A LOT, WHILE BEING A BILINGUAL TEENAGER? Like they do all of these things mastering languages? 

I’m an  18 year old argentinian gurl who speaks both spanish and english since I was 13. 

(think about those badasses who speaks like more than two or three languages!!! THEY ARE THE BOSSES!!!)

James, a deeply feeling man who began his working life as an auxiliary psychiatric nurse, shakes his head.

Many of the younger people who present at gender clinics have a history of mental health issues such as self-harming, social anxiety, eating disorders and so on. They see transitioning as their panacea.’

In addition, James says that the proportion of people attending gender clinics who are on the autistic spectrum is approximately six times higher than the general population.

‘The activist line is, 'Oh that’s because they’re trans so if they weren’t discriminated against and could just be themselves and transition they wouldn’t have mental health issues.’ That’s far too simplistic. I wanted to try to find the truth.’

In November 2015, James submitted his first proposed Masters Research title, 'An examination of the experiences of people who have undergone reverse gender reassignment surgery’, which was accepted.

'I had some people contacting me who said, 'Yes we’ve reversed our gender reassignment, but we’re so traumatised we don’t want to talk about it.’ It made me realise how very important the research is.

'Then a group of young women in the U.S. contacted me. They’d transitioned from female to male, had double mastectomies, then re-transitioned back to female.

'They’d stopped the hormone treatment that had been suppressing their menstrual cycles, but didn’t want reconstructive surgery to rebuild their breasts.

'I wanted to include them in my research, particularly as some of the women said they thought their original decision to transition to male had come from social and political pressure, not for psychological reasons.’

He submitted a revised title in October 2016: 'An examination of the experience of people who have undergone Gender Reassignment Procedure and/or have reversed a gender transition.’

James accepted the research might not be 'politically correct’, but felt it was important.

The next month the university rejected his proposal on the basis that 'the posting of unpleasant material on blogs or social media may be detrimental to the reputation of the University’.

'All I wanted to do with my research was listen to what people were saying and report it,’ James says.

'Society is changing so rapidly that a lot of people feel uncertain of their place in it and they’re looking for something. The fact is, the idea of trans identities is now being brought into the classroom and is all over the internet.

'I really think it’s good people who have transitioned have rights and they’re legally recognised in their gender. People fought for years for that and it’s very important.

'Some people need to transition and benefit from it. It’s a complex field, which is why we need to be able to have a healthy discussion about it and not feel afraid to do so.

This has all become a kind of Kafkaesque weird tangle. Somebody needs to call it out.’

I still have to do more research anddddd.. finding some more free time.. 

I hope I can draw some more of him soon TT 

Art Prints PSA

This is a semi-rant/semi-PSA about prints. There’s a tl;dr at the end:

The other day, I bought a print from an amazing artist online. They’re a primarily grayscale artist and I love their style! It’s quite unique and I was so excited to hang this print up on the inspiration wall. When I opened the print, it was just a laser-copy on 24lb standard copy paper… It looks okay from a distance as it’s in black and white, but up close it’s disappointing. Another example: A year ago in an artist alley I was anxious to buy a print from another great artist. The print I wanted was on display at their booth and it looked really nice! But when I paid and received a copy it had some noticeable lines running through it, with very uneven borders…
I’m happy to support fellow artists, for sure! My office is covered head to toe with art bought straight from the artist online and at cons. But I just had a feeling of getting “ripped off” with the paper quality lately.

A Writer’s PSA

Firstly: I just saw an interesting post made by @caplanbuckybarnes (who I can’t tag, but that’s okay), that inspired both anger and relief in me at once. I was compelled to type out this PSA.

Secondly: I am tagging everyone who has asked to be tagged in The Irrelevance of Napoli SO YOU CAN SEE HOW GODDAMN AWESOME THEY ARE BEFORE I START THIS. 

@thecrownedrose @persephone-is-here-omg @find-me-here2 @captainamerotica @redgillan @angryschnauzer @ursulaismymiddlename @rebelslicious @kittykitty-mewmeww @erisjade @siren-kitten-his @buckyappreciationsociety @kozmicrock @aingealcethlenn @rachelle-on-the-run @thewinterswimmer @vaisabu @inside-lizzys-head @angryschnauzer @melconnor2007 

Thirdly: I am doing this more for the sake of my upcoming fic, Cherchez la Femme, which I have been working on for MONTHS–probably since Septemberish–than I am for Napoli. Also doing this for the sake of other authors who may feel this way, but don’t want to say anything for fear of making people mad. I personally am tired of dealing with my own anxiety about this subject, so I’m getting this off my chest. 

Okay.

 I am exceedingly frustrated by the majority of attitudes (or non attitudes) I see towards anything that is not a one-shot on here. ESPECIALLY if it’s smut.

I like smut. I love smut. I’ve read some really good smut on here. But… that’s not all I’ve read on here. When I first got on Tumblr, I found some really unique and interesting fics, and I got very invested in them. But lately, the majority of what I’ve been seeing on this site is the same damn thing, over and over and over again. Smut one shots, no plot, no character development, no nothing. Those fics I was invested in were discontinued (temporarily, I hope) in favor of smut one shots, which, like I said, I don’t mind, but ya know… I also do.

Authors are capable of writing more than smut one shots. 

Authors are capable of writing more than smut one shots. And many of them do write more than smut one shots. But I have seen two (2) of the multi-part fics I follow being seriously reblogged. That’s out of A LOT that I happen to read and like. One of my favorites got put on hiatus because there were no reads on the most recent chapter at the time.

Tumblr, seriously, what is going on? Like, I recognize that we all want to imagine ourselves having sex with some version of Sebastian Stan (ME TOO, I AM NOT EXCLUDING MYSELF FROM THAT GROUP) but some of these people have worked ages, ages on these fics. With well-developed characters and plot and settings and serious issues that are worked through. THESE PEOPLE I READ SHOULD WRITE ORIGINAL CONTENT AND GET PUBLISHED. In my world, they would. Because they are that good.

And yet, they get almost no recognition. And it frustrates me, and scares me, and makes me really, really sad. Some might say, “Tumblr is more (something else) than fanfic for me”–which is fine. Please engage in whatever joy may have brought you to Tumblr. But also remember that for others, it IS about fanfic, and they enjoy doing that just as much as you enjoy doing whatever you do. So hit the like button every once in a while. Read more fics of your favorite characters. Some might say, “I have –something that gives me a shorter attention span–, I can’t remember what happened before this chapter/can’t concentrate enough to get through a whole fic in the time I have”–in which case, you are fine, don’t worry about it, not a big deal. Some of you may say, “Works in progress are annoying, I hate waiting for new parts to come out”–and trust me, I’m right there with you. I’m waiting on a few new parts for fics myself (I’m also waiting for Diana Gabaldon’s next Outlander book, goddammit), but that doesn’t stop me from reading and commenting on the parts that are there! Tell the author that you have something to look forward to until the next part comes out! Also, TELL THE AUTHOR IF YOU ARE WAITING FOR THEM TO COMPLETE IT, or ask to be tagged in the final masterlist! We won’t mind if you do it that way! Some of you may just hate longer fics and there’s nothing anybody can do to change that. In which case, whatever floats your boat.

I’m not getting on anyone in the above paragraph to suddenly change your preferences and start reading fics with more than two parts. What I am saying, though, is if you consume, but don’t comment AND reblog (or at least tag and reblog), or if you don’t consume at all and blatantly ignore what authors are putting out there… come on, guys. We put our heart and souls into this stuff. Some of the stuff we write is taken from real life. Some people don’t have anything but their writing to help them get through what may be a really bad stage. Likes, comments, reblogs–writers need these. We don’t all have to be JK Rowling here, but we do hope to see that someone smiles or laughs, or cries, or feels in some way with our fics. 

One of my friends on here was very sad a couple of days ago because she was getting very few notes on even her one-shots, or reblogs with no comments. She has 700+ followers and a taglist that’s a mile long. It made me sad for her, and I can’t even hug her because she lives far away from me. Readers, you don’t have to comment or reblog every chapter of a fic that’s been written, it’s really okay if you don’t, but let the reader know that you like it and acknowledge the work that’s been done. 

I’m still relatively tiny on here, and I definitely need to follow more blogs, so I will now go looking. But, indulge me for a second: If, when I publish Cherchez, I deem it as not getting enough notes, I will make a goddamn video of myself deleting the thing off my computer and burning the damn notebooks. I started by writing this stuff for me. Napoli ended up being about someone I know who recently died. Cherchez was what I wrote when I was coming out of a breakdown. So yes, I write for myself. But as soon as I put it up here, it becomes yours. You consume it, you feel because of it. So really, guys, read all the smut you want. I know I’m going to. But read more than smut, too.

Sincerely,

Someone who is a teeny bit oversmutted

The Human Encryption

Biological Survey of Star 8526-3-0 “Earth” Entry by Lead Mind of Covert Species Investigation Team.

Progress has been quite slow in observing the nature of the local “Human” which is surprising since their largest historical and technical database is completely integrated with their global communications system. After a relatively quick integration, the team was ecstatic at the sheer volume of data left completely unregulated. It wasn’t until the ship’s data mine returned nothing but errors that we realized how frustrating this network would prove to be.

It has been several cycles since the team began the manual survey, and we have only recently made a groundbreaking discovery: Human culture appears to value the production and distribution of lies. The discovery was made after the geography tech raised a query concerning the volume of locations recorded that did not have a registered planet location. (See log entry “Superman: Alpha form or unregistered contact?”) After an extensive search, it was concluded that a majority of locations referenced in this network did not exist and probably never have. It is truly baffling to me that a species would dilute such a powerful system of knowledge with lies.

One theory of it’s purpose is that the sheer volume of false information is the network’s true encryption. Rather than requiring specific keys for access, it instead produces thousands of answers to any question to hide the truth. As unconventional as it may be, it has certainly proved effective, sending the team running in circles and rendering all conventional programs useless. The question remains however, how do humans navigate the encryption? Our research has confirmed that the species uses this resource often for tasks of varying significance with success and apparent ease. I fear we have vastly underestimated their aptitude for critical thinking.

Automating and applying this logic to the entire database is impossible without more knowledge, but preliminary data points to a unique human word “fiction” as holding possible answers. For now i will revisit my previous data and attempt to discern any deceit. I knew there was something weird about the so called “Platypus.”

my POT accepted my allowance request

I met with him twice earlier last month and on our last dinner date I had told him that it probably wouldn’t work out because of the distance and $200 for dinner dates wasn’t cutting it for me. So if he wanted this to continue then we would actually have to start an arrangement. I asked him for 4k a month, which is more than what I really need but I wanted to set the bar in case he tried to talk me down from that. We only talked twice and that in a brief exchange while I was on vacation and had not heard from him since. So I was thinking that maybe he thought that what I was asking for was too high and he had moved on (so had I so I wasn’t tripping). BUT he texted me this morning and he told me he couldn’t stop thinking about me and that my allowance request was doable. So now we’re meeting for dinner tomorrow and this little lady has her self a new SD. Mind you, if you’re still reading this, I was able to do this without being sexual with him. No making out, no sex, no nude photos or explicit text. All he got from me was a peck on the cheek and my attention. As I get older and more experienced with meeting with men and doing research, I’ve learned that you don’t have to be overtly sexual when meeting these men to get what you want. Reading books on how to talk to men (or people in general) has helped me out in sugar dating and in my vanilla life. I’m not settling for anything less than I deserve. 

anonymous asked:

What are you favorite Voltron ships?

Hmmmm, well this is a hard question. I love a lot of ships in Voltron, so… Well, I’ll divide this answer into two sections. The ships I would like to see in canon and the ships I am just generally fond of, lol. 

Ships I’d be happy to see in canon (but I wouldn’t honestly be broken up if they didn’t happen. I don’t watch this show for the ships). These are mostly based on my own headcanons and are probably ships that most people don’t even think of, except for the first one. 

Klance: I think everyone who follows me knows I love Klance, lol. Especially in the advent of season 3. They work so well together and they’re growing so much in tandem. I think they could have really natural romantic development that starts from a place of deep friendship and trust. From rivals to partners to friends to best friends to lovers. I love it. I can’t get enough of them to be honest. They learn so much from each other and work so well as a team.

Pigtor (or Lotidge, I just learned): Yes. You read that right. I don’t even think this ship has a name? I may have just coined it, hahaha (I’m probably the only person that ships it)! But if it has a name, feel free to tell me. In any case, it’s Pidge and Lotor. “But Skay… what the fuck?” Just HEAR ME OUT, OKAY?! I already think that at some point Lotor is going to switch sides. It’ll be difficult, but I do hope he’ll come over to team Voltron, maybe as a result of something traumatic or learning the truth about his parents addiction, etc, etc. And no, I don’t ship them at the ages they are now–Pidge is 15, c’mon. And Lotor is clearly older. BUT in the future, I have a headcanon that as Lotor tries to rebuild the war-ravaged Galra kingdom, which has fallen apart as a result of no longer being an empire, Pidge is around being the green lion and generally doing genius things. She’s inventing things, working on nature/quintessence research, being awesome. Anyway, she and Lotor see each other once in a while and somehow maybe end up working together. Lotor has always had a deep respect for her intelligence and passion for what she’s doing, and as he watches her, he begins to fall for her. Pidge reminds me a lot of Honerva and I kind of like the idea of their story mirroring hers and Zarkon’s. But unlike Zarkon, Lotor has more self-awareness and sees when Pidge might be getting a little out of control. He loves her passion, but with any resource in the universe at her disposal, she begins to get lost in her work. Lotor could encourage her, but when he sees that she’s dabbling in the dangerous parts of quintessence work, he pulls her back. His own parents were destroyed by such things and he won’t allow that path to be repeated. Pidge and Lotor have formed a pretty close friendship at this point and she sees his point, realizing her own errors. It’s probably a very dramatic part in their story, but yeah. From there things maybe develop more romantically. And then Pidge becomes Queen of the Galra and she and Lotor kind of become everything Zarkon and Honerva could have been, leading their people and doing great things with their research, but knowing from Zarkon and Honerva when something is going too far. This is a huge development for Pidge because, as she is in the show now, I’m sure she’s of the opinion that learning anything and everything is what’s right, similar to how Honerva felt. But I think that, through Lotor, she’d realize that while knowledge is powerful and should be exposed for all, there are also some things that are, perhaps, best left unknown. I also headcanon that Lotor is the only one that calls her Katherine (because I want that to be her full first name) because he thinks it’s a beautiful name. When they were younger, it annoyed the crap out of Pidge, but as they got older, she didn’t mind. Honestly, I love this ship so much. YOU CAN’T STOP ME! PIGTOR FOREVER!

Hallura: I read a fic where Hunk and Allura were together and I was like, “huh, that’s interesting…” And from there the ship just got better and better for me. And now that they’re both legs, I’m like “okay, so let’s have some Hunk and Allura development where Hunk is like ‘and this is how you do this move.’” And I just kinda want them to become friends because I think Hunk will become more calm and levelheaded as he gets older, and that he’ll be a good, steady presence for Allura as she continues her diplomatic stuff. Like, she’ll get back from a meeting and Hunk will just be there, ready to comfort her and de-stress her and I just really love them, OKAY?! Like, Allura being upset about her people and her planet and Hunk is just there beside her, saying nothing but being there and just… letting her grieve. I also think his sense of humor would be really good for her. I need Hunk and Allura development so bad…

Shiro/Romelle: Romelle doesn’t actually exist in the show yet, but I’m hoping that when the rebels get introduced, she’ll, like, be their leader or something. She’s from planet Pollux in the original Voltron, and I think was Allura’s cousin? Anyway, maybe the Polluxians are related to the Alteans, or maybe she is altean and is descended down from the lines of what few Alteans weren’t on Altea when it was destroyed. I don’t know. I just want her to be a badass rebel that saves Shiro and they fall in love. Maybe she’s a lot like Allura, but has a more battle-worn maturity about her, and maybe she and Shiro bond over that.

Sibling/Platonic!Sheith: I love sibling relationships, probably because I have a lot of siblings, lol. I love the idea of Keith and Shiro being half-brothers (which would make Shiro and Acxa half-siblings too, if she and Keith are twins, which I hope they are). I just… love the idea of them being brothers so much. And Keith finding his family, and having parts of that family on top of his Voltron family. I NEED IT!

Those are the ship I like best when related to what canon we have at the moment. But I also like all these ships to. 

Shallura: They’re both so mature and have their own demons, I think they’d be really beautiful together and balance each other out. They’d be the support the other needs in hard times and I think it’s just a really… bitter-sweetly beautiful ship. They’d become each other’s strength. 

Originally posted by mrsruberduckyjr


Hunk/Acxa: I basically like Hunk and Acxa together for the same reasons I like Hunk and Allura together, lol. I also think that Acxa probably has a lot of the same displacement issues that Keith does (if they are brother and sister, which I like to think they are), and that Hunk would be a really steady presence for her to come back to.

Allurance: I like the idea of Lance having liked Allura, but then he kind of grows out it. But then Allura develops feelings for him, but doesn’t feel it’s appropriate to act on them. So it’s this long, drawn out back and forth that gets resolved when they’re older and fall in love again, this time at the same time.

Um… I think that’s all the ship that kind inspire me creatively? With the exception of a few, I like most Voltron ships, but I think these are the ones I like the best from a creative, personal standpoint, lol.

Dean x Sister!Reader     Sam x Sister!Reader

You sat next to Dean who was driving while talking to Sam on speaker phone. You were trying your hardest to not show any interest while Dean told Sam about the close encounter with the scarecrow last night.

However Dean knew, he always knew.

“We’re on our way to the community college now, you know since we don’t have our geek boy sidekick to do all the research.” Dean joked.

“You know, if you’re hinting you need my help, just ask.” Sam responded with a chuckle.

You let out a scoff with his words before grumbling “We don’t need him.” Just loud enough for Dean to hear.

Dean sent you a look before speaking again, “Actually, I want you to know-I mean, don’t think-” Dean began his attempt at getting an apology out.

“Yeah. I’m sorry too.” Sam spoke, knowing what Dean was trying to say.

“Sam. You were right. You gotta do your own thing. You gotta live your own life.” Dean told your other brother, causing you to look at him like he had grown another head, where was this coming from?

“Are you serious?” Sam responded, sounding just as shocked as you were.

“You’ve always known what you want. And you go after it. You stand up to Dad. And you always have. Hell, I wish I—anyway….I admire that about you. I’m proud of you, Sammy.” Dean spoke into the phone.

“I don’t even know what to say.”

“Say you’ll take care of yourself.” Dean offered.

“I will.” Sam replied.

“Anything you wanna kiddo?” Dean questioned with a hopeful look, wishing that you’d apologize to Sam.

“Nope. I’m good.” You said quickly before turning your attention to your window.

Dean let out a sigh before speaking again, “Call me when you find Dad.”

“Ok. Bye, Dean. Bye Y/N.” Sam said sadly.

Dean hung up the phone then glanced over at you, “You really can’t stay mad at him forever you know.” You simply shrugged your shoulders and continued to ignore Dean, “You also can’t ignore me forever.”

You looked back at Dean and narrowed your eyes at him before making a ‘time out’ motion with your hands, “I can and I will…unless its related to a case.” You said before giving him a smug smile.

“That’s not how that works Y/N.” Dean informed you.

“I do what I want.” You replied before putting your hands back in the ‘time out motion’, signaling that you were going to continue to ignore him.

Dean let out a groan as he gripped onto the steering wheel tighter, “Teenagers.” He mumbled to himself while continuing his way down the highway.

 Crouching behind the largest tree you could find, you cursed out the Winchesters for the thousandth time. Simple vampire case they told you. But just as you had been getting ready to lop the head off the vampire you had spent all evening with at the local bar, 2 more had appeared out of nowhere, and you had no choice but to run. Taking a few deep breathes, you managed to calm down enough so instead of hearing your blood pumping in your ears (oh, the irony) you started to hear what was going on around you. It was silent, and goddamn it if that didn’t exactly fill you with the joy that it should do. After all, the vamps had your scent now.

Suddenly, the sound of AC/DC started blaring out, and you scrambled for your phone, wondering when exactly Dean had time to change your blasted ringtone. Shutting it off, you sighed, before screaming as hands grabbed you and threw you several feet. Looking up, you saw the vampire you’d been with at the bar, fangs out and coming at you, fast. Instinctively, you reached for your machete, gasping in horror when your hand met nothing but air, your blade laying on the floor where you’d dropped it trying to stop your phone going off. Pausing in his movements, the vamp smirked at you, and as he got closer to where you were sprawled out, you took in a deep breath and closed your eyes, hoping that this bastard at least killed you, and didn’t turn you into one of the monsters you’d spent your life hunting. But instead of fangs tearing at your neck, you heard a squish and a thud, and opened your eyes just in time to see the vamp’s head roll to a stop a few inches from your feet. Stood behind the vampire’s crumbled body, Dean, bloody machete in hand, and just past him was Sam.
“Hey.” said the elder Winchester, wiping off his blade on the bottom of his flannel.
“Hey? Freaking hey?” you screeched, the fear being replaced with anger. “I nearly got killed and all you can say is hey!?”
“You’re welcome Y/N.”
“You'r…..I hate you sometimes Dean.”
“I love you too, sweetheart.”
Rolling your eyes, you let Sam pull you to your feet and took your weapon that he’d gone and picked up off him.
“Thanks Sam.”
“You look like you’ve got a nasty cut there Y/N.” Sam said, examining your side in the weak moonlight. “You must have caught a branch when that vamp tossed you.”
“Let’s get back to the motel, we can check it out there.” Dean yelled over his shoulder, already heading back to wherever they’d parked up.
“Sam…” you whispered, pulling him to a stop besides you. “It’s not just him. Two more showed up to meet headless over there. Which means….”
“They’ve got your scent. Shit. OK. We’ll sort that problem out later. Let’s get you patched up first.”

LET’S READ: KRAVEN THE HUNTER

(Previously On, or, The Mess So Far)

This time it’s The Amazing Spider-Man #34, published in March of 1966. That’s right, it took two goddamn years for Kraven to get back from being deported. Although I may have gotten the date wrong on that last post, I think it was actually May and not August? Whatever, who cares. This is still being written by Stan Lee and drawn by Ditko, which is to say, it is still batshit bonkers and 500% the most canon. Look at this fucking cover.

Humans are weird: Culture/Karaoke

Kareoke culture (at least american karaoke cilture) is so frickin weird .

Imagine the Humans on board decide to find an interstellar karaoke place on one of the new human settlements. Xernfes the human caretaker decides to tag along to see what this “Karaoke” thing is. Human Stacy has assured him it’ll be fun and that the caretaker will learn all about early culture from a certain region. Xernfes assumes it’s a feast or museum of some sort. He slithers in and is immediately concerned by the flashing lights and noise. The human manual said something about flashing lights being bad, right? None of the Humans are concerned so he makes a mental note about it for later. They get their room and start looking through the books. Human Stacy immediately starts typing numbers. They don’t starts playing and everyone immediately cheers. Xernfes has no fucking idea what’s going on. Suddenly everyone is just screeching “TAKE ON MEtakeonme, TAKE ME ONNNNNtakeonme I’LL be gone, in a day or,,, TWOOOOOOOOO” everyone knows the song and sings in their worst possible voice. Xernfes has no idea what this has to do with culture. What made them evolve to know every word? Is this a religion? They play all the classics, kung fu fighting, sweet caroline, we will rock you, etc. And by now this poor researcher has no idea what’s going on its all so confusing. The songs are so… dumb and yet they’re all singing them word for word. It’s getting late so they decide to do one last song. The YMCA. “YOUNG MAN” Human Stacy screams into the microphone. Everyone stands up. Xernfes is so confused are they leaving I thought we were singing? The Humans start doing the YMCA motions and he thinks they’re having a seizure or doing code or anything. He’s never seen such unison!

I don’t know how to explain this better but karaoke culture man

Dear Aspiring Sugar Babies,

Please do your research. If you ever have any questions, please feel free to ask. This community is so willing to help another - capitalize on it. Do not take advantage of it. I promise you this is more for your own sake, rather than ours. Be curious and inquisitive, but do not expect others to do it for you. I love to help SBs, but I cannot be on the date with you. Now before anyone goes off, I do not think I am better than anyone. At some point, we were all at the starting line. However, I do think your safety is invaluable. There is a degree of accountability needed, you do NEED to do some of the research for yourself. There are thousands of posts and the sugar baby hashtags that are inexplicably helpful, use them. I still read them all and I learn something new everyday. 

It is so easy to become caught up with the “what could be” (the allowances, designer things, fancy trips, expensive meals), you forget about the dangers of this lifestyle. It is okay to be eager, we all were. And of course, there are some things you can only learn from experience. That being said, you need to do research and expose yourself to the basics and potential risks. Listen to other persons stories, to avoid making similar mistakes. I worry for those who ask me the most basic questions, because if I can spot your lack of exposure or naivety - these men will too. They will not be forgiving. They will take advantage of you.

If you need help, I got you. I don’t know it all, but if I can keep a fellow SB out of harms way - I promise to help. It’s on you to hustle safely.

A/N: So I don’t know what the hell happened but this one just took on a massive life of its own. 

I combined the following two requests: Anonymous said: Hi! First of all I love your blog! I was wondering if I could request a smut/angst deanxreader fic where they’re both hunters and have been dating and she has to flirt for info on a case with a sleazy guy and dean gets riled up and jealous? Thanks! AND Anonymous said: If you have fic requests open I would love a fluffy smutty comfort fic with dean after a particularly bad hunt.

Hope you both like it! Enjoy!



“A ghost? Seriously? All the way to South Dakota, for a ghost?”

“Yeah! I want something fun and easy. We can go bug Bobby after too. Plus, I think Sam is taking that case in Minnesota, so he can meet up with us after.”

Dean just shrugged and finished filling up Baby. “Fine by me. It’s pretty messed up though that a ghost is something that’s ‘fun and easy’.”

“True,” you laughed as you shifted in your seat, “but then again, our lives are pretty messed up, so there’s that.”

Dean laughed, leaning across the seat to kiss you sweetly before revving Baby to life and screeching out of the gas station.

Hi, so I'm kind of quiet and introverted, and I have trouble writing banter and characters who are witty. Do you have any tips or suggestions for me? Thanks

It can feel pretty daunting to write stuff that we, personally, don’t do or think or feel. Sometimes writing a character can be difficult because while they would act or react, or think a certain way, we as the authors would never behave the same. So how do we do this?

First of all, I want to point out that as writers, we have a big advantage here. We have all the time in the world to think about and refine what the character will say. It’s difficult to be quick and witty in a real life conversation, because it happens now, but when you’re writing banter, you can take as long as you like to write, rewrite, research and consider every aspect of the exchange, and you can make it seem as fresh as if you habitually stood around wisecracking.

Now, research is going to be really helpful for you. If you want to figure out how to write good dialogue, listen to how people talk, yes, but also pay close attention to well written dialogue

Real life conversation, even with very witty people, is filled with redundancies and fillers, it’s part of how communication works and when we’re talking face to face, we often don’t notice it, it fades into the background. But good dialogue is very much like good conversation, with the redundancies and fillers taken out. (An um in a key moment to show hesitation, or a character quirk will add dimension to your dialogue, an um in every sentence will get old really fast.)

Think about your characters, their individual quirks and personalities, think about how they say what they say. For example, I have a character who is very wealthy and looks very posh, but who loves to make people uncomfortable and uneasy, he uses a lot of cliche phrases and likes to quote classical texts, but only when it’s inappropriate or a little bit creepy (a double entendre that sounds like a dad joke and references the bible? That’s this guy at a party). 

I have another character who’s a very enthusiastic student, he’s very bright and friendly and if you ask him a question you’re liable to get three answers, probably one after the other in very rapid succession, on the other hand, he’s very used to being told to shut up, so any sign of his conversation partner not being interested and he’ll clam up and stick to one-word answers as much as possible.

Two different characters with different backgrounds and personalities, and very different patterns of speaking. This doesn’t need to be extreme or wildly out there, but every character has some little thing that marks their individual style of speaking, and just keeping those features of their personality in mind can help you decide how they might approach saying any given thing.

As to what your character is going to say, you need to know what the content of the discussion is, what the goals of each character are, and the approach that each of them is taking to the conversation. This is applicable to writing conversations in general, but you’ve asked about witty banter, so that’s what we’ll focus on.

Are they discussing the weather? A show they saw? Are they rivals exchanging a few pointed barbs? Figure out what the conversation is about, what is the actual substance of the conversation?

Why are they discussing this? Is it a simple exchange of information or pleasantries? Are they friends passing time and entertaining each other?

When you understand your characters’ personalities, their relationship to one another, the goals that each has going into the conversation, and the content of the conversation, then think about their mannerisms and their speech patterns.

Are they posh? Are they a bit rough around the edges? Are they speaking formally or informally? Your characters’ backgrounds are going to influence the way they speak and the register of language (how complex or simple) they use.

And writing dialogue well is a matter of a lot of practice, start thinking about conversations that you’ve had or overheard, and consider the ways that you might refine those if they were taking place in fiction. What would you omit if you were transcribing the conversation? What might you add and why?

Take your time, map out what the conversation should cover, plot it like a story within a story, when does it progress and in the push and pull of the conversation who is ‘winning’ as it goes on. Conversations can be handled like action scenes, but with verbal exchanges instead of physical movement.

A good way of figuring out if dialogue sounds right is to read it aloud to yourself. Often, things we write sound fine inside our heads, but clunky when we try to speak them. Give yourself some privacy and read the conversation aloud to get a feel for the sound of it, the rhythm of the language being used and the flow of the words.

Also, look at fiction that has strong examples of conversational dialogue. Buffy the Vampire Slayer is a great example of a kind of teen colloquialism that is rarely done well on tv. If you read any of Oscar Wilde’s plays, you’ll probably pick up pretty quickly that they are 100% banter. 

And while they’re not often ‘bant-y’ fiction, writers like Earnest Hemingway, Katherine Mansfield, Virginia Woolf and other ‘modernist’ writers utilise what’s referred to as ‘realist’ styles, which makes their dialogue both very clean and very telling of their conversational styles.

On your twitter you mentioned that you first had a degree in illustration. What made you decide to get a degree in animation?

The first thing my illustration professor said to me after I graduated was “You’re my competition now.” I think i realized in that moment i was not gonna be cut out for the demanding and overly competitive Illustration career I had imagined (doing drawings for magazines/newspapers). So I did some research and discovered Calarts- and realized that the Animation world would be much more compatible with me, and that jobs would be more plentiful. Plus I love animation, so it all kinda came together. 

Luckily i didn’t have to go through a whole other school degree at Calarts. Disney hired me as a story artist after my second year.

Please Do Your Research

For nearly three years I watched the sugar baby and brown sugar baby tags on tumblr. I screenshotted hundreds of posts, kept a notebook of safety tips and occasionally asked question. 

That paid off, so much. 

I think doing research is seriously underrated. I see a lot of young woman saying they want to make easy money being a sugar babe, and at first I was like that. But i did my reading, and thank god. I didn’t go in with unrealistic expectations and it made all the difference.

I learned it would take time, especially being a brown babe. I leaned so many safety tips that I would’ve overlooked if I jumped into it. I was young, stupid and probably wouldn’t have thought to make two paypals with one using my real name and one using my sugar name.

There were so many things I wouldn’t have considered if I hadn’t done my research. Now that I’m started I’m all the more confident. I know I’ll make mistakes, I’m human. But I won’t make mistakes that result in fraud and other things. 

So to all the wanna be babes, do you’re research. You might think it’s stupid and boring but do it anyway. You’ll thank yourself when you start sugaring.

Author’s note: I have spent all day writing and typing this so I hope you all like it. I will start on the Little Flower part two and another Draco one-shot later this week. My weekend has been kind of terrible. My grandma feel yesterday and broke her femur above the knee so my mom went to see her and then the power went out for a while and then my dad and I had to go get my sister from gymnastics and on top of that I had a terrible head ache so I’m surprised this is even done. Love you all.

Getting the internship with Tony Stark was the most progress you’d made in two years. Other than learning to control it. Now there were less incidents which meant working at the Avengers tower would be safe. Your goal was to spend minimal time with the actually people and more time in the advanced labs with the brains. It’s not like you have much time to waste on the others anyways.

School and research was literally all you could ever think about. ‘How do I modify my genes, how do I become normal?’ It was almost simple you just needed a few more brains who would help without asking too many questions.

Bruce Banner of course was the obvious choice. He was smart, studied his own genes which were modified resulting in the Hulk. He was quite admirable in your opinion, if it were you surrounded by that many people who just all seemed like too much you would be busting out the big guy all the time.

Tony Stark had the money for the research and was also pretty smart. He wouldn’t ask too many questions and would simply dive into the science of it all. Hopefully.

The questions was where it became tricky. You couldn’t tell anyone because the minute even one of the Avengers found out, they would try and control you. You didn’t want to be tamed or controlled you wanted to be fixed. Even though walking into the Avengers tower was asking for trouble you slipped on your big girl panties and slipped onto the propriety.

You weren’t stupid you knew there would be security measures protecting the building but getting past them wasn’t the problem, explaining how was. Not wanting all the harassment you stepped right into their booby trap on purpose.
