Hun, do what you want. Not what you think will please your fans. I'm pretty sure people will love what you bring either way. "Sim-stories" are stories. Good stories take you on emotional rides.

I’ve been thinking about what I’m going to do after Finding Marley is over for a while now!! Partially because I already have most of it planned out now, but also a little because I’m itching to work on something a bit different :’) so, this is very encouraging, thank you nonny!! 😊

You and your Sycophants in your glass tower are the reason why hard working streamers like myself can only pull 10-15 viewers a stream while playing popular games. You think you are better than us and brain wash your fans into not looking at us because league or dota isn't "cool" to look at anymore. Just let people have opinions, i saw you ban a person for saying they wanted to play persona 4. Your mods also made fun of a user because his name had pony in it. This is destructive to twitch

Crates are coming soon and they will help balance things

Haise’s Birthday Poem begins with the lines [x]:

“Someone said this:
“Even if you have no memories of being loved, for as long as you have memories of loving someone, you can continue to live.”

…But how is someone who has never been loved be capable of loving someone else?

A child who wasn’t able to receive the minimal love they required at the time they needed it the most will continue to gaze at the illusion of affection and never know how to love until the day they die.

Well, how about me? Can I continue to live?”

Furuta grew up without love, surrounded by the products of Tsuneyoshi’s fucked up harem. The only person who seems to have shown any affection at all for him, as seen in the flashback in this chapter, is Rize. Rize who cared if he died when she ate him. Rize who played with him. Rize, whose fate he was fully aware of. Who he saved, because at some point, or maybe deep down still, he understood that that fate is wrong. She was the only thing he had, and he let her go, for her sake.

In this explanation to Kaneki, he mentions explicitly that as a child, he had these childish ideas of love and marriage in the future for them. Things he gave up for her safety from the men of the main Washuu house.

Even when he’s being crude and creepy, talking about Rize having all of those children for him, he references 101 Dalmatians. A Disney movie. And one with some of the healthiest romances, both between the dogs and the humans.

Even now, he’s looking at a Disney movie where two dogs snuggle each other. Where these two dogs have 15 puppies who they risk their lives to save. And who adopt 84 other puppies who would otherwise be dead. When you think about him as someone who grew up surrounded by who knows how many half-siblings, in the Garden like he did - this is basically him saying he wants a Disney Romance.

Which is not to say that the way he’s speaking isn’t terrible. That the tropes he’s using aren’t horrible and misogynistic. They are. Furuta, as he always has, is falling back on farce and drama, on systems of power that he himself as already explicitly told you he condemns. Furuta switches between honest and lying, between truth and exaggeration, between real emotion and fake dramatic flare over and over.

He speaks in this weird mix between a cynical jaded, crude adult, and a desperate, sad, idealistic, stubborn child. Like with his big speech to Eto about V in 66, I think this chapter he is mixing truth and fiction. Sometimes strategically, sometimes just because.

@linkspooky​ pointed out to me that it almost seems that the more honest he’s being, the less of his face is shown. Times when he’s really approaching sincerity and seriousness, he’s shown from the side.

Where as most of the time, he’s hidden under his flare and his masks and his drama.

Furuta, for all his fake emotion, is clearly uncomfortable with the real thing. Uncomfortable when people make him feel things and uncomfortable expressing emotion. Uncomfortable and unskilled and really parsing it.

Instead, he falls back on theatre and performance and lies.

When he says he couldn’t bare the thought of her having a kid after being free for so long… was he talking (just) about jealousy, or was he talking about the fact that the CCG, and thus V, was gaining on her - had almost captured her in the 6th ward and gotten Shachi in the struggle, and was well on their way to tracking her down again? Was he talking about not wanting her to be free, or about after all that time, still not being able to accept the idea of her being recaptured by V and used by the Washuu men like that.

He used her too, of course - and brutally. I think he was mad at her not only for wasting the freedom he helped her win, for almost getting caught again - but also because he still cares. And he doesn’t want to still care about her. So he punished her for his own feelings. Furuta is… not a fan of his own feelings. And he’s childish.

Its not an excuse for what he did to her, but I do think he acted when he did, if not the way he did, because if he hadn’t, there was a very real chance she’d have returned to her old fate. And that, he could not abide. Even now.

What he did, to Rize, in taking her power and undergoing that surgery himself, in killing off all the Washuu, taking leadership of the CCG - he gives multiple reasons for it even in this one conversation with Kaneki. On the one hand, in his proposal to Kaneki, he sets up a clear role for himself - as a villain to unite ghouls and humans against (Kaneki’s team, rather than the CCG and Clowns in this case) and introduces it as a big production, culminating in his own, rather than Kaneki’s death - ever suicidal as he is.

But explicitly, he also claims that people don’t need reasons for what they do. He also claims that he is doing what he wants to do, and that he is doing what he wanted to do as a child.

I think all of these have a grain of truth to them. He talks in such a way that mixes narratives, mixes truth and fiction, and sometimes just because its easier to talk with (half)fake emotion than real ones.

I think that Furuta, the nearly 6 year old child wants to destroy the toxic terrible “family” that used and abused him, and create in its place a 101 Dalmations style family, with him and Rize as Pongo and Perdita. A big loving, new Washuu family. This part of Furuta doesn’t care about ghouls or humans or Kaneki Ken or Eto Yoshimura or any of that at all.

But Furuta is also an adult, and became one probably much too quickly, if he knew what awaited Rize and helped her escape because if it. And the Adult Furuta knows he can’t have any of that. That Rize forgot about him and doesn’t love him back and that he burned that bridge by dropping those beams. His children with her are going to be via Kanou. Anything new will be born from death and fire and war. Adult Furuta has plans. Adult Furuta wants.…something… out of all of this. Some grand finale.

Part of Furuta is still that child - still wants Rize to come back to him and love him and play with him (and maybe kill him). Wants a big happy Disney ending for them. But he also knows he can never really have that. He’s known that he could never have that, because of how he was born. That’s the irony of that line, about the life he has and how he might as well. Because he was born to NEVER get what he wanted, ever. (And yet - and yet he fights back - viciously and endlessly and savagely, despite being born only to serve.) Because he has grown up now, and he’s done terrible things, and he knows that that happiness is impossible. But he’s also 6 years old and desperate and lonely.

I personally have thought for a long time that Rize is being set up as the one who will kill Furuta. I just hope (though I don’t necessarily expect) that they will get a chance to talk before it happens, or when he’s dying, or something. A chance for him to thank her for finally killing him, after all this time. A chance for him to say sorry, or not to - to say he’s glad he did it if it ended there, with him dying in her arms.

I still don’t think Furuta thinks any way about women, in general, though I understand why people see this pattern. It’s certainly a power structure highlighted by his character, either way. I think he probably has a good deal of the background misogyny of the culture and of the Washuu clan in his upbringing, but he also has a deep seeded hatred for everything about that upbringing. His understanding of things is so twisted and bent around this terrible place he was raised in, and the world he was forced to live in, that its honestly a miracle he’s still fighting for something different.

But Furuta sees every structure as a farce, as a mask, as a tool, rather than a truth. And he plays with these tropes of misogyny and discards them just as quickly. He’s making himself out to be a villain, to be crude, to be cruel. And it’s no excuse for his actions - for the very real fate Rize suffered at his hands. But he deals with Matsumae as a failed knight and a hypocrite, not as a woman. He plays with misogyny and its masks and its power system when he’s mock-flirting with Eto, but the next second he throws it away. He has no regard for masculinity or its virtues. Its a game to him. And that is a nasty and dangerous way to look at a very serious thing. Which is a great metaphor for Furuta who sees farce in everything. And is setting up a grand theater with all of Tokyo as its stage, possibly to write his own death into the final act.

“When I unveil this, won’t you come play with me?” He knows what Kaneki wants. He knows who Kaneki will save. He knows who Kaneki will kill. He still wants to die, and he seems to like the idea of dying to make things better, in a sense. And still, he’s speaking like a child. Come play, Kaneki. 

“Doesn’t it make you want to die?
If you die, you can get cured you know. (This is true.)



So if you were planning on giving me something.
In this year, I want four times more of that love or hate.



PS: (Laugh, it’s fun!)” [x]

* BROTHER! A… ARE YOU OKAY? WHY ARE YOU CRYING?

* ….i don’t remember.

Anon threw a prompt suggesting Sans and Gaster reuniting. I decided to make it into a comic of how it would go alongside my headcanon :D
Basically, Gaster can’t be saved but thanks to Frisk somehow Sans is able to see him one last time. The bonus panel below goes with another personal headcanon that after Gaster and his followers were erased from existence, everyone’s memories of them (including Sans’) were lost. But photographs hold a lot of memorable moments…. right?

The last two panels were inspired by @sketchit26‘s heart wrenching comic!

One time I was reading a story on @sixpenceee blog out loud, the story was ‘don’t blink’. And my door was open and my brother was across the room. When I finished the story my brother yelled “I’m scared to blink now” now that’s some sixpenceee shit there.

Love turns to ashes
With all that I wish I could say

Hey, first I want to say that I am a huge fan and love your work. I was thinking the other day, and I just wanted to clarify - demons can have multiple warlock children, correct? Also, in that sort of situation, would the warlocks born from the same parent have similar/the same warlock marks? (This likely has absolutely no relevance to the story, but it was something that made me curious). Thank you! <3

Yes, demons can have more than one warlock child. They won’t all have the same mark, though they will often have similar ones. This is actually something explored a bit in The Lost Book of the White, as Magnus may reveal knowledge of a sibling or two ;)

wow… it’s been 13 years. where do i even begin to say how proud i am of how far dbsk has come? as changmin once said (i paraphrase, since i can’t find the exact interview) that being together for 10 (and more) years was an accomplishment by itself, regardless of the number of fans they had or the number of awards they had won. that the fact that they could make people happy around the world was rewarding in itself, and their long journey was fulfilling in itself.

honestly, this gifset is not enough to encompass all that you have done. whether one considers the numbers above small or big, according to me, you have accomplished so much more than just your awards and milestones. i think you have shown your fans the true meaning of working hard and not giving up, no matter how many obstacles fall your way. from the start, you’ve had a tough journey and yet you’ve persevered. being broke, having sasaengs, having anti-fans, having practically no audience in a foreign country, being lonely in a foreign country, broadcasting at the weirdest timings, having an insane schedule, splitting up, dealing with more anti-fans, almost not returning as a duo, losing huge amounts of fans, amongst so many other things. and yet, all of you have come out stronger and better. 

even with those difficulties, you have strived to show the best of you to us, and there has hardly been a moment you have not made us proud. so, be it as five or two, thank you for carrying the name of ‘dong bang shin ki’ far and wide across the world. thank you being such a huge part of what k-pop is today, and thank you for giving your 110% all the time, even though you know you don’t have to. thank you for everything in the past 13 years, and here’s to many more to come.

Hey Cassie! I'm absolutely in love with your books and I think about your characters all day. I'm a huge Jemma fan and it hurts to see their relationship strained. Will we see any nice Jemma moments in LoS? I really want them to be okay.

TDA is about all kinds of love. Family love, friendship love, and romantic love. The relationship that Emma and Julian currently have is romantic love, and while it is under strain, that doesn’t mean it isn’t worth exploring. I don’t think that I’ve written any couples who, even when their relationship is strained, don’t have any laughter or smiles or fun together at all. Enjoying each other’s company is an important part of having a relationship, whether it’s a friendship or a romantic relationship. Even when things are hard, people can still have good times.

Petra hangs above the void, kicks her feet as she has not done since she was a child, since before the witches claimed her. Amethyst clouds swirl before her, casting shadows across the spars and wreckage that litter the Reef. Beside her, a knife-edge of reclaimed metal juts into empty space.

She has come from her charge’s cell, his four arms eternally clutching blades and gemstone. Focused, as always, on carving something beautiful. In a way, she envies him - he has nothing left to lose.

She stands, rolls her shoulders. And places a single, tentative foot on the beam next to her. Ship or Ketch or the detritus of a dead civilization she cannot say, but it remains solid beneath her despite the shifting mists and the pounding of her heart. The Tower has three, but now the Reef has only her single eye and all the rickety balance she can muster.

She does not slip. It has been years, but her feet and heart remember. She had worried it would not be so - strength hard-won is too easy to forget, and the sureness of bare feet atop cold metal is an unexpected relief.

They call him the Warden. She wonders if it makes him chuckle, alone in his barren chamber - the Warden, more a prisoner than anyone. To the Reef, yes, but to himself as well; to the histories he has crafted, to his house, to the Fallen - to the Eliksni. She watches his eyes when he thinks that no one else does. Sees them widen in surprise and narrow in hurt. Saw the pain it caused when errant Wolves cast off their chains. 

What he was planning, she could not say- but dreams have their price, as she well knows. At least her prison is larger.

And yet, when she enters the poisoned atmosphere of his dungeon, she is always thankful for her mask and the anonymity it grants. She does not doubt that he would burn the Reef to ash if it meant the rebirth of his house. She does not fault him for it.

They are both loyal in their own way, and as she looks beneath her into emptiness she swears an oath - swears it seven times: as long as he stands with his head high, so will she. They are needed, both of them.

She pirouettes atop the beam. Smiles to herself at the accomplishment, but feels her throat catch. Variks knows it as well as she does: there is a gravity that comes from the Last City to which she cannot put a name, despite witch-born knowledge, despite battle-earned cunning. His Great Machine has brought its grudges with it. And she could not care a whit, because -

Because her Queen lives. And if claiming her once more means the Reef must burn, so be it. She will light the match with laughter in her heart and dance among the flames.

Let’s appreciate how almost all of You’s screen time in Episode 8 was devoted to her saying “Chika-chan…” and giving Chika worried looks.

Fan: Are you preparing your mixtape?

Hoseok: Sure!!!! i’m always thinking about it

‘’This fan said that she talked with hoseok about his mixtape and  asked him ‘’why he was worried’’ and his answer was ‘’i want to make good music to many people’’ and that’s why he’s so worried lately.’’
