Batman's Rogue Gallery and their D&D characters
  • <p> <b>Bane:</b> He is delighted to play a black dragonborn ranger ("I can play as an almost DRAGON, hell yes!") He has a wolf familiar and was sent by his clan to eliminate as many members of a certain race (his favoured enemy) as possible because said enemy has decimated the majority of his clan. Also the favoured enemy changes each campaign.<p/><b>Catwoman:</b> Unsurprisingly, Selina went for a drow rogue. She's pretty much made for stealth although she's a bit squishy. She was forced to leave the Underdark after her House was destroyed and sought a better fate on the surface world.<p/><b>Clayface:</b> He was stuck between a halfling rogue and an orc paladin, eventually deciding for the latter. His character is a decent enough guy with really good charisma and Clayface really enjoys playing him. Also a good tank and diplomat alike.<p/><b>Harley Quinn:</b> Harley rolled a delightful Chaotic Neutral tiefling bard/fighter. She plays the lute and fights using a giant warhammer. Harley's favourite thing about playing a bard is that she can literally sing people to death; it gives her great joy.<p/><b>The Joker:</b> They never invite him because I hate his guts and he'd probably piss everyone off anyway.<p/><b>Killer Croc:</b> First of all, Croc's PSYCHED that he can play because he always wanted to do it as a kid, but nobody wanted to play with him. His character is a green dragonborn rogue. He's the second best scout and the king of backstabs, although he can also hold his own in melee.<p/><b>The Mad Hatter:</b> Jervis's character is a gnome wizard/druid (enchanter/shapeshifter.) He's good at charming people and enemies to do what he wants them to, and can transform into a wide array of animals in case his magic isn't enough.<p/><b>Mr Freeze:</b> He rolled a human cleric whose best friend died to a mysterious illness so he took it upon himself to travel the world in search of a cure so that less people would suffer. Fights with a staff and is often the voice of reason in the party.<p/><b>The Penguin:</b> Oswald is still a little in denial about how much he enjoys this game. His character is a Lawful Evil ex-noble gnome rogue who rivals with Croc and Selina when it comes to stealth and backstabbing. He's a bit of a kleptomaniac (although not as much as Selina's rogue) and somehow manages to pick more locks than the other two put together.<p/><b>Poison Ivy:</b> She rolled a Neutral Evil wood elven druid whose goal is to aid nature in taking back the land taken by humans - because of course. She either refuses to interact with anything unnatural or attacks it on sight. She kicks more ass than one would think.<p/><b>Ra's Al Ghul:</b> I think that he'd mostly DM because he seems like a KICKASS DM, buuuut if not then his character would be a super badass high elven fighter master swordsman.<p/><b>The Riddler:</b> Eddie rolled a half elven wizard because knowledge is power. His character is called Edward like him, because what did you expect from a guy with his ego? He's super smart and charismatic, but Eddie forgot to put points into Constitution so he's squishy af.<p/><b>The Scarecrow:</b> Although Jonathan prefers to DM, he rolled a tiefling fiend warlock. Amusingly enough, the fiend he made a pact with is his great great grand aunt. He has a raven familiar named Nightmare and spams "Fear" like the asshole he is.<p/><b>Talia Al Ghul:</b> Neither she nor Ras would probably want to play but he's a bamf and she's a girl and we need more girls. Talia would probably roll a drow fighter/monk. The fighter/monk combo lets her kick ass even when she doesn't have a weapon.<p/><b>Two-Face:</b> Harvey used to play in high school, and decided to resurrect his old dwarven cleric character. Torim Goldhammer is a true neutral cleric of Dumathoin and wields a mace and a shield. He won't heal anyone who was an asshole towards him.<p/></p>

so, medici was a flawed show. some things about it, particularly in episode 3 and 5, annoyed me and made me roll my eyes. but i’m not here to rant. in fact i’m here to take my mind off that orange talking std [cit] who just won the american elections and list some reasons why i’m happy i had medici. 

  • it’s a rai (italian public tv) production. this in itself is a huge point because rai so far has produced, with few exceptions, mediocre fiction for barely literate old people (aka its average target). producing medici means, at least i hope, that this is going to change. it also breaks a seemingly never ending tradition of miniseries about the risorgimento and 20th century popes and nuns. i don’t mean to say my (beloved) grandmother should have nothing left to watch, but i wouldn’t mind watching something on raiuno as well, since we all pay for it. to put it shortly, it’s a step ahead. and i’ll seldom shut up about how unlike rai this show is in the following points.
  • cosimo is an anti-hero. rai made some, if few, co-productions about far-from-perfect characters before (see nero starring hans matheson) but they shamelessly whitewashed them by throwing other people under the bus and stretching history far more than it’s intelligent. here, cosimo is depicted as an essentially decent but also very deeply flawed person, a liar, an unfaithful husband and a somewhat cold father. he’s brooding and unreadable most of the time and while it’s impossible to hate him (at least for me, madden’s eyes make me weak in my knees) he’s not the shiny, stainless, misunderstood poor soul rai usually showcases.
  • contessina. cosimo’s wife is the strong female character™ you don’t expect. she doesn’t kick ass, she’s not cool as ice, she doesn’t go around poisoning people and claiming her right to sleep around as our modern age seems to want strong female characters™ to always do. she is strong as fuck, she is an iron lady, but she gets to be so even if she cries for her husband, if she’s desperate for his love, if she shouts hysterically at him (SO HAVE I is my favourite quote from the entire show, know it) and yes, wants some dick from him even if that’s just angry sex (ON RAIUNO). even if she’s petty to her husband’s mistress, if she endures, if she forgives him time and again and stays. not gonna lie, i would have ripped his balls and added them to the medici insignia, i wanted her to leave. but because feminism is about allowing a woman her choice and not judge her for it, whichever that is, long live contessina and her choice to stay and raise carlo as her own child.
  • the women. none of the girls from this show are entirely forgettable. bianca was a touching figure, if a bit vanilla. contessina’s what i just said. lucrezia is very sweet, but also growing into a formidable woman. maddalena isn’t just ‘the slut’ and even gets to shade the medici for their disrespect of her. emilia is gossipy but loyal.
  • renaissance in fiction. most italians know very little of the renaissance. ours being a relatively young political entity, we study and celebrate the risorgimento a lot, we produce a lot of fiction about it, we’re time and again told the story of the two WW and the holocaust. which is also great, we should do that. but we forget about the rest too much. we read the da vinci code but we hardly know what da vinci did and we still think napoleon stole the monna lisa because we don’t know leonardo died in freaking france. when medici was announced a lot of people had no idea who cosimo was. the renaissance is sometimes explored in documentaries, though not nearly as many as i see are made on the 20th century and the risorgimento; and it certainly hadn’t been explored in home-made fiction for at least some 30 years. to see brunelleschi (and with preziosi’s face) on tv, well that was special. personally i was really proud. that was florence, montepulciano, tuscany, lazio, finally celebrated. and not much cgi.i hate cgi.
  • the story. again i should remark how rare it is for rai to make a show like medici. we produce a lot of historical fiction, as we should because we have excellent costumes, but we usually make it about fictional characters or we whitewash historical ones, overromanticizing their lives, erasing their ambitions and their flaws and their gray areas. if we’d done cosimo’s story some ten years ago we’d probably have written of a goody-goody guy ending up with a huge bank because he was fundraising to feed the poor and buy his wife some flowers and then just happened to have a fortune to share with a saintly pope. this story wasn’t romanticized, in fact it’s much less romanticized than it was, say, on the borgias, where cesare was only ever driven by his love for lucrezia.
  • the bad guys. antagonists in fiction are usually ugly and just plain mean. albizzi, on the other hand, was a very handsome man and even an ex boyfriend of cosimo’s, which created a nice, interesting dynamic between the two of them. i’m afraid that won’t be the case with the pazzi next year.
  • the flashbacks. they were kind of poorly made because the characters all looked exactly the same when supposedly 20 years younger, but flashbacks were a peculiarity of this show and i missed them when they stopped coming. following two plans of the story would leave me wondering just how the hell we’d ended up there.
  • the music. seriously i’m addicted to this ost, praise paolo buonvino. sometimes i even think i wouldn’t like the show this much if it wasn’t for its soundtrack. i feel so dramatic walking around the city with renaissance in my ears and i absolutely adore how the theme is kind of broken into pieces and spammed in various tracks throughout the series.

so yeah this is way too long but i’m happy i had medici and i forgot about trump for about 30 minutes. thanks. 

[The Curious Case of Newt Scamander] Sherlock Holmes x Reader

Prompt: Anon requested:  heyy, what about a crossover of sherlock& fbawtft?:) The Reader (who secretly loves sher& is a muggle) hangs out a lot with newt and they’re friends. Sherlock is quite jeaous and curios with whom she is hanging out th whole time. He goes after her when she meets with newt and sees them getting into newt’s suitcase.

Words:  2,584

Warnings: None that I know of. :D

Wooooo I posted! I know there were some requests that were sent before this, but this caught my eye, and this was so much fun to write.

Sherlock Holmes definitely lived up to his reputation.

Or rather the “high-functioning sociopath” part. Anyone who has ever met the detective have most likely been a victim to his famous deductions; incredibly brilliant but also painfully truthful. As for his sociopathic personality, well… To the public eye, the man seems void of any emotions, the only person who he seemed to have any sort of relationship with was John Watson. Of course, there are still many women who swoon over the tall, dark and handsome detective, but the idea of Sherlock Holmes dating anyone was laughable everyone. Perhaps it was just impossible to provoke an emotional reaction from the consulting detective at all. Or so people had thought.


You took one last look in the mirror, and smoothed out your dress to make sure that there weren’t any wrinkles. Satisfied with your appearance, you walk into the living room of your shared flat of 221B. You were about to leave when you heard a familiar deep voice.

“You’re in a dress.”

“Wow! Sherlock Holmes’ best deduction yet! Quick, someone inform the media of this remarkable discovery!” Your voice was dripping with sarcasm.

“Yes well, you weren’t in a dress earlier, were you?” He retorted with just as much sass, “What’s the occasion?”

“What? Can’t a girl dress up for herself once in a while?”

Sherlock hummed, “We both know that’s not the case.”

You rolled your eyes, “I’m having lunch with an old friend of mine, he’s in London for a few days.”

“Old friend as in…?” He raised an eyebrow.

“A friend that is not currently new.” You put your shoes on and grabbed your purse, “Don’t wait up for me, I left some food in the refrigerator if your hungry, okay love ya!”

With that, the door was slammed, leaving Sherlock alone. He sighed. Guess the skull will have to do for now.


Newt was meeting you at a quaint little café a few blocks down from your flat on Baker Street. You would’ve suggested to meet at Speedy’s, but the  possibility of certain nosey, curly-haired flat mate coming down to spy on and muck up your little reunion was too big of a risk to take. Nothing was going to ruin today for you.

You walk in the front door, hearing the little bell ring. You hear Newt call your name and see that he’s already gotten you two a table by window. He stands up and engulfs you in a big hug.

“It’s great to see you, (Y/N/N).”

“Great to see you too, Salamander.” You grin cheekily, he absolutely loathes that name.

He groans, “Seriously? You know I hate that nickname! Do you have to call me that all the time?”

“Oh, sorry, does it really bother you?” You tried your best to look genuinely sorry.

“Yes!” You’ve been calling him that for as long as you can both remember.

“Aww, well,” you pretended to look thoughtful, “Then of course I’m not gonna stop, you should really know me by now Newt!”

He rolled his eyes and smiled at you fondly. It was good to have his best friend back.


Sherlock was most definitely not having a good day. First Mrs. Hudson threw out his experiments that were left on the kitchen table. Okay, maybe that was an ideal location to put them but still, they were vital to this case! Then, John had to go back to work because they had an “emergency”, this was an emergency! So he was forced to continue the case when John came back. And then (Y/N) had left him for lunch with another person, whom he has never heard of. And she wasn’t even answering his texts. I mean it was him, how could she not be answering him? He kept thinking about your lunch date, in the totally not creepy way.

Maybe she got lost on the way there, that would be typical of her. Maybe she’s stuck in traffic.  Or maybe she got mugged?! MAYBE MORIARTY KIDNAPPED HER AND IS HOLDING HER AT GUNPOINT RIGHT NOW?!

Okay, he’s definitely been hanging around you for too long. He tapped his fingers along the side of his leather couch. God, was this frustrating. He then, somehow came to the conclusion that spamming (Y/N) with texts until she’d answer him would be the best thing to do.


So… you were ready to kill Sherlock. With a spoon. And a blender.

Half of your conversation with Newt has been lovely, talking about his travels, his new findings about beasts, his upcoming book and whatnot. The other half, has been with nothing but text alerts.

“Yeah, I’ve - ding – been doing – ding – fine here in London, the flat – ding – mates I’ve got are – ding – wonderful, even if – ding – Sherlock can be – ding – a real pain in the arse – ding – sometimes.”

Newt makes a face, “Are you sure you don’t wanna get that? It seems urgent.”

“Mm, it always is with him.” You mumble.

36 missed texts from “Douchebag in a Trenchcoat”

What time are you coming back?

Have I ever met this “old friend”?

I need to conduct an experiment and John left me for work. Of all things. Come home A.S.A.P.

This important to the case! People will die, if you don’t.

Alright I finished it without you. Since you were so busy with this friend of yours.

(Y/N) pay attention to me.

I lied, there was any experiment, Mrs. Hudson threw away all my organs…


I need your help.

I ripped pages out of all your books.

The flat is on fire and I’m trapped under rubble, SOS.”

(Y/N), Moriarty has strapped a bomb on me and if you don’t come to Baker Street he’ll blow everything up.

I thought I was supposed to be the arsehole…


(Y/N), please.

I’m sorry I didn’t mean it.

Don’t ignore me!

I know you’re doing this on purpose now.
- SH

I’m extremely bored.

I might just get the gun again.

Think about poor Mrs. Hudson.

You could be having lunch with me instead. I’m probably much cooler than whoever you’re with…

“Oh for God’s sake.”

Newt could clearly see that you were stressed by whoever this “Sherlock” person was. But it was his duty as your best friend, to cheer you up and have you smiling again.

“Why don’t you come down to the case? It’s been a long time, and I’m sure the creatures miss you an awful lot.” He offered shyly.

“That, Newtiekiens, would be wonderful.” You smile.


Pacing around the flat, Sherlock wondered why you were gone for so long. It’s been hours, where were? Not that he cares what you do, he was just worrying like John would, like a friend would, right? Yes, he was just doing what a good friend would do.

Maybe it would be a good idea to go see if she’s alright. Uh, purely because her disappearing would be inconvenient.

He quickly went to your room to see if you had left anything to tell him where you had gone. Some might say this was an invasion of privacy, but that doesn’t matter. He saw your journal open  with a post it note on the page saying where you were meeting a… Newt Scamander? Huh, odd name.

He grabbed his coat and made his way to the café.


Needless to say, Newt’s suitcase full of magical, wonderful beasts never seizes to amaze.

Of course there had been a few changes since the last time you’ve visited. One, unfortunately, being Frank the Thunderbird has now been set free back into the wilds Arizona. You weren’t supposed to have them, but he was your favourite, and while you were glad that he’s back where he belongs, you just wish you could’ve at least said goodbye. Now, Newt had taken in 3 Hippogriffs that had been trafficked, an injured Manticore and a baby Phoenix that was left in the rain.

It felt good to be surrounded by magic once again.

“I approve of the new additions to the family.” You grin, you felt like Newt and you were raising children.

“Oh good, I thought you were going to make me kick them out.” He joked.

You punched him lightly on the shoulder, “Shuddup.” You said, hiding a smile.

There you were, sitting on a little hill, petting a baby Phoenix, head lying on Newt’s shoulder. It was a sweet scene.

“You know, you should him give this to Professor Dumbledore…” you mumble, “Didn’t he say he liked phoenixes?”

“Hmm, maybe I will.” He smiled down at you.

“So, have you found yourself a boyfriend yet?”

You groaned and lied down, “Damn it Newt, it was nice and now you made all… ewww.”  You scrunched your face as if you bit a lemon.

“So there is someone?”

“No! Maybe…? I don’t know, it’s really really complicated.” You covered your face with your hand.

“Not sure if I’m following.”

You peeked from under your hand, “Not sure if I do, Salamander.”

“Do explain.”

You whine a bit more, but sat up straight, “Alright, fine! If your so interested in my love life.”

“So there’s a guy, he’s kind of a rude, arrogant arse, but once you get to know him he’s really sweet, in his own way. He’s really really damn smart. And he definitely knows it, but probably the smartest man in the world.. He has these beautiful blue eyes, you could just drown in them. And his hair, I swear it’s not natural, it shouldn’t be, must’ve sold his soul or something… actually that would explain a lot…”

Newt laughs, “I’m sure he’s not soulless.”

“Yeah, no, you’d be fooled. But still, he’s just wonderful, even if he’s a handful most of the time.” You sigh a little.

“Does he have a name?” He inquired.

“Well, most people call him, dickhead, rude, a self-righteous cock, but I think he prefers to call himself Sherlock.”

He laughs again.

“Sounds like you really like this guy.”

“Not exactly sure if he like me back. Not sure if he’s capable of liking anyone.”

“Cheer up, he’d have to be out of his bloody mind not to like you. If he really is the smartest man in the world, then he has to see how wonderful you are. Trust me.”

“You’re my best friend, you’re obligated to say that, Newt.” You say while yawning.

He puts his arm around you and you snuggle into his shoulder. You were about to drift off into sleep when–

“Do hope I’m not interrupting anything.”

You’re wide awake now. You turn around, and sure enough, Sherlock Holmes was standing behind you. How the hell? What?!

“W-what? Sherlock?! How did you find me? How did you find this place?!” You were pretty sure your jaw was on the floor.

“Oh please, you left your journal open and Mr. Salamander–“


“–Scamander, should really hide this… whatever this is, somewhere more sealed off next time..” He sounded… bitter?

“So you followed me!” You huffed.

He furrowed his eyebrows and stared at you, “Yes, of course I followed you, that much was obvious!”

“Unbelievable, Sherlock, unbelievable.”

“I was worried! You were gone for hours I didn’t know where you were!” He defended himself.

You scoffed, “Wow, that is a really shitty excuse Sherlock.”

“Okay, in my defence, as a detective, you following a strange man into a dark alleyway is really shady.”

“Well it isn’t any of your damn business.”

“(Y/N), maybe cal–“

“Sorry that I was being a good friend for once, okay? Won’t be trying that again since you were clearly having a great time here with loverboy.” He spat.

“Uh, we aren’t, I’m not–“

“You have no idea how insensitive your being.”

“Right, ‘cos that’s Sherlock Holmes. The insensitive, arrogant prick. Hmm?” He rolled his eyes, “What is this anyways? This place is… impossible.”

“I’m a wizard.” He squeaked out, just a smidge intimidated by the man.

“A wizard?” He laughed.

“Yes, a wizard what were you expecting?” You hissed at him, still pissed at his actions, “Most people don’t know about the wizarding community, muggles are usually ignorant to magic.”

“… Muggles?”

“They’re non-wizard folk.” Newt explained to him.

“Okay…” Sherlock said trying to process this, and he was failing quite wonderfully at it too.  How in the world could this possibly be real? It seemed like a dream, too wacky and bizarre to be reality. Perhaps he was dreaming, and this was all just a horrible nightmare he would soon awake from.

“Yes, and you weren’t ever supposed to know. If you hadn’t followed us this wouldn’t be a problem.”

He narrowed his eyes, “Sorry for the inconvenience then, Your Majesty.”

“Definitely not as much as I am, trust me.” You glared back at him.

“So what does your boyfriend do? Is he a magical animal
rescuer?” He hadn’t meant to come off rude. Or maybe he had, you never really know with Sherlock.

I am a magizoologist.” This time Newt glared at him.

“And he’s not my boyfriend, so  would you stop saying that!” Sherlock was really really starting to get on your nerves.

“Oh? Then what is he?” He challenged.

“He’s my best friend, okay? I can have those, right? They can be guys can’t they?”

“Don’t lie to me, (Y/N).” He said, he look hurt. Beyond hurt.

“Why would she lie to you? If weren’t busy being jealous you could see she loves you…” Whether Newt had meant to let that slip or not, it was enough to get both of you to freeze.

Your eyes widened at Newt like, “Dude! Not cool!”

“Was… w-was I not supposed to say that?” He looked at you sheepishly.

“I’m not being jealous. She can date whoever the hell she wants.” Sherlock said, not very convincingly though.

Your face morphs from confused to sly. You finally realize why Sherlock’s been acting weird all day, ohhhh someone is jealous.

“Awwww Sherl, you don’t have to be jealous!” You tease.

“I am not jealous.” He whines, like a child who wants a toy.

“Good, ‘cos you’re the only guy for me.”

You grab him by his shirt and kissed him. At first he didn’t do anything, he remained still, shocked at the gesture. Then he started to melt into the kiss and kissed back with more passion, his hands moved to your waist and pulled you closer to him. You’d forgotten everything else and remained focused on one thing. Each other. It had ended quicker than either of you would’ve like, but since your senses were still on fire you didn’t say anything.

“So, uh, you two are good right?” Newt said, as he shifted awkwardly.

You laughed and pulled Newt into a hug. 

“I’ll make it up to you, I promise.” You whisper in his ear.

“You better.” He smiled and whispered back.

You looked back Sherlock, “So, uh, are we, um, a thing then? I know you don’t really do this sort of stuff…” 

“I would like to be, yes.” He beamed.

“Okay then, Mr. Holmes.”You pulled him into another kiss.

Name: Sasuke Uchiha

Anime: Naruto, Naruto Shippuuden

First appearance: Volume 1, chapter 3: Enter Sasuke! / Episode 3: Sasuke and Sakura; friends or foes?

He is the driving force of the series that keeps everything together and everything is kind of ‘down to him’. He bought team 7 together through his compassion towards them, he bought taka together by being a great leader, even when he isn’t on screen he is influencing the series and it’s characters. He is like a quiet force that moves tidal waves of plots and character arcs with him. He fits his shoes as an antagonist and fits everyone else’s shoes too..He is so very well written, the king of the series.

How long are you a Fan:

2016-now, liked him since 2009 though

Do you love him/her a lot?
He can have my kidney

anonymous asked:

can you please do a taohun gif spam with your favorite taohun moments :') //puppy eyes

anon…. do you know what you have done… i’m in so much pain after looking for all these pictures….. just a warning: there will be a shit-ton of gifs. a lot of them. also you get my commentary on the side bc how could i share my fave moments without telling why they’re my favourites.

anyway, here we go!

star splash was amazing. not the part where tao cried after his family obviously (it was horrible i might’ve cried too) but everything else was great. (tao’s very flattering diving outfit also.)

  • okay so the first moment comes here: tao makes a successful jump and you can see how relieved sehun is. suho is there like “thumbs up son that went well i’m glad i paid the diving instructor a little extra“ meanwhile sehun looks like he’s going to collapse from relief.

  • then the iconic moment when suho thinks tao is going to hug him but sehun goes n o p e and pulls tao to himself.

  • here’s another angle (not a gif but i don’t discriminate based on image format)

oh man. moving on! the 13th music billboard annual festival was also absolutely terrible

  • look at this fucking sunshine dweeb waving please both of you focus on the things you’re supposed to be focusing on.

  • then there’s tao, smiling like a goddamn dumbo. please leave.

i’m going to put the rest under a read more~

Keep reading

As promised, here’s a breakdown of how a self-prompt turns into a full story for 30 straight days of one-shots. Spoiler, the farther in you get the more things change :)

Let’s start with the numbered prompts. The numbers represent my original plan for when I’d post each story:

1- Broken Pocketwatch - Unsurprisingly, this is the story A Broken Pocketwatch. I wrote this story prior to starting 30DaysofCreampuff and actually have an altered version of this as a generic short story that I ultimately decided not to submit to professional journals. I’m a sucker for soulmate au.

2- Dear Creampuff New - Prior to 30days I’d already written 9 chapters of Dear Creampuff, this was the 10th chapter. Still loved writing in Carmilla’s sassy voice. Looking forward, you can see that I’d planned to publish 1 new chapter of Dear Creampuff each week as a story. This got squashed as I realized just how many fic ideas I had. 

3 - Cookies & Strangers - turned into Just Buy the Cookies. I knew I wanted to write a Carmilla and Laura meet for the first time fic and have it confrontational. Originally I’d thought it would be something to do with Carmilla stealing Laura’s cookies until I was accosted with Thin Mints and changed my mind. Tiny Laf was a bonus.

4 - Sadish LaFerry - before I realized the fandom’s bias to Hollstein, I wanted to try a few other pairings. This story was 100% percent based on kbearluna’s video with Annie where Kaitlyn talks about a headcannon where Laf is a ghost. I ran with it. Define Death ended up doing double duty and looking at identity and what it’s worth. I still like it but it’s definitely one of my lowered loved fics. 

5 - The Sticking Incident - is literally still called The Sticking Incident. I cheated slightly, i knew I’d be busy that week and so this is strongly strongly based on something I wrote as part of a huge story for the Justice League fandom. But come on, literally sticking two confrontationally in love people together is always fun :)

6-  Heart AU - you can tell from the pen colour change that this wasn’t in the original plan. Love is Orange was inspired by coming across one of my favourite comics for the Once fandom by delintthedarkone where literal hearts keep popping up between characters. She graciously gave me permission to take the basic idea and run with it. Currently, I’m working on the third and final chapter. 

8 - Angsty Take 2 Coffin - my one and only true foray into the deepest angst that is a Coffin of Starlight. I was originally intrigued with what being in the coffin for that long would have been like for Carmilla which lead to wondering what could possibly make her go back. Which lead to angst and turned into a writing lesson on descriptive prose (thus the penciled in blood roo?). 

You may note that chronologically I posted 2 stories before I got around to coffin of starlight. 

10 - Superhero AU (retired villiany, villainy roommates) - This actually turned into Beneath the Boots and Leather which we wouldn’t see until the near end of 30days. I wanted to write a fic where Carm and Laura were roommates and arch nemesis who kept having to make excuses for why they were rushing out of the apartment all the time. I like the final result better when it finally worked. I also just posted a chapter 2 for this story.

However, I did post Powerless at this time which was an offshoot of this prompt for a generic superhero mixed with half of prompt 18 for ‘high school au’ which somehow became University. Also, I’d just watched Sky High. 

11- When Carmilla Met Laura - Originally I’d planned on doing a ‘When Harry Met Sally’ spoof but I never ended up writing it. Maybe I still will. Maybe if we get a season 3 and i do this madness all over again…

I’ve added the break because I just realized this is going to get super long and I don’t want to spam. But I really hope you’ll still keep reading <3

Keep reading

So why do you want a new tmi cast for the show? the current cast is great xD

The Mortal Instruments fandom is blind

Yes I’m going to talk about the existing cast. Yes you should read my stupid rant. Yes there will be typos.

This is my honest opinion, most likely it’s different from your opinion but I’m going to post it anyway and probably get hate for it but meh. If you can’t handle my criticism then why are you on tumblr?

Recasting: I honestly do not understand whyyyy this fandom likes the cast we have so much, yeah the actors are nice and friendly as hell but um… they cannot [save for Robert and Jemima] for the life of them act as the characters. 

Hear me out. I highly recommend you watch polandbananasbooks’ review on the CoB movie on YouTube first if you haven’t - she covers the problematic acting in the movie (and other things). I’m not trying to be mean to the actors, I know they do their hardest at their job, but this is my favourite book series and uGH.

  • Jamie as Jace - asides from the fact he doesn’t look at all like Jace (he also looks nothing like “the greatest Shadowhutner of his age” he looked sickly and skeletal in that shirtless scene he had with Clary when she was telling him she found the mortal cup), he’s actually not sassy. He’s deadpan, Jace is a very emotional character - and I know, I know, I KNOW he hides behind his mask, but never, ever in the books is he deadpan - he’s a sarcastic lil shit who puts everything he has into everything he does. Jamie had no energy, and he speaks his supposedly “sarcastic” lines in a very monotone voice. And Jace is cheesy as hell in the movie - ew god no book Jace is smooth af.
  • Lily as Clary - I love Lily so much, and I don’t have a lot to say about her acting, but she always had her mouth gaping in the movie and, like, forced her lines out through gritted teeth. I know Clary has a short temper, but this didn’t feel like a short temper - it felt like she was whining throughout the movie.It just didn’t seem believable. 
  • Kevin as Alec - I’m sorry but he’s just too old; most of this cast is just too old. These characters are teenagers, not 30 year olds with children! I literally cannot imagine him being all flustered around Magnus tbh.
  • Jonanthan Rhys Meyers - I love JRM in the Tudors, great actor! In CoB….. not so much. He was too overly dramatic with his lines and tooooo villainous - which I’ll admit is partly part of the scripts problem because it made him crazy. Valentine is a very manipulative villain, he would go to a massacre in a velvet suit tbh, he’s about democracy and politics - he acted like Sebastian in the movie, all action and violence. No. (Also he didn’t look the part: gross black hair with rats tails and no shirt??? As if classy McGee here wouldn’t wear a shirt.)
  • Godfrey Gao as Magnus - monotone voice; Magnus says the most outrageous things and is so quirky and odd, Godfrey was just really glittered up and spoke his lines. He didn’t even have any quirky mannerisms ugh. Also: where are his pants and his witty remarks?

Yes I know the script stuffed up everything, but these are not the Mortal Instrument characters.

Also [most] of the CoB actors were movie actors and you can’t just expect them to be on a tv show like that.

AND A BIG TMI FANDOM PSA: STOP PESTERING THE TMI MOVIE CAST TO BE IN THE TV SHOW. I see it on their twitters, instagrams, facebooks, tumblrs or whatever social media they have - if they want to be in the tv show they might be, but spamming them endlessly like I see every. single. day. is not going to MAKE them be part of the show. You can trend #KeepOriginalTMIcast or whatever you want but you have to let these people live their lives - they’re not here to answer your pleas on a daily basis.

I don’t even want a tmi tv show - but I’m probably not going to boycott it, so if you’re planning on boycotting it if you don’t like the new cast. Suck it up. This is the closet thing we’ll get to seeing all six books in a visual media, don’t screw it up for the rest of the fandom.

(Why don’t I want a tmi tv show? I’m probably going to watch it though, just fyi. Well I do think this has a better chance at succeeding, but I’ve seen so many good shows based off even better books turn to absolute trash after the first few seasons and it’ll break my heart if that happens to tmi. Also, if tmi becomes too popular I’m so scared it’ll succumb to bad writing for fan service :/ sigh)

  • All in all, we need a brand new and good scriptwriter who actually sticks to the plot, and we need a new cast for Jace, Clary, Alec, Valentine and Magnus.

EDIT: Lol no I hate Cassanadra Clare and I’m not watching that god awful show, I’d rather choke. Stop supporting Cassandra Clare.
