this is a very good list

anonymous asked:

What has been your fav dialogue to write so far?

Hmmm, most of my favourite lines I’ve written are prose not dialogue but there are a few bits of dialogue I’m really proud of. 

“Enjoying the view.” “You’re routine was very good today, it was worthy of second place” and “I hate you. Now fuck me.” - from chapter 8 are all pretty high on the list because I love writing sassy Yuuri

“Good…Just be careful Yuuri. If you’re not, if you let this go too far, one day Viktor is going to break your heart again…Or you’re going to break his.” and “ the last thing in the world that’s ever going to happen is for Viktor Nikiforov to fall in love with me.” - from Yuuri and Phichit’s conversation in chapter 10 because irony

“Out on the ice today, you were stunning. The audience love you…You give yourself so freely to them. To everybody…But you came. When I asked, you came…I don’t have anything else. But I have this.” - from chapter 10 because oh boy is that one going to be fun to dissect for the companion fic

“Are you familiar with eating Russian?”/ “Ah well, I guess Viktor can just order for you.I’m sure he’ll give you something that you like.”/”Sleep well” - from chapter 12 because CHRIS

“ “You insulted me and you belittled me. You didn’t believe in me. I worshiped you and you broke my heart.”” - from chapter 12 because Yuuri finally said it

“But it’s you. How can I not remember you? I would remember you.” - from chapter 12 because again, fun times in the companion fic

“Hey asshole…Yes, I’m talking to you asshole…Don’t think I don’t know who you are or what you do…The way I see it, this goes one of two ways…Either you actually do care about Viktor, even a little bit in that stupid fucked up head of yours, or you’re using him just like everyone thinks. So I’m giving you a choice. If you do feel something for him, you tell him and stop fucking him around. And if you don’t, you stay the hell away from him. Got it?…I hope you love him…But if you don’t and you keep screwing with him, I’ll make you regret it.” - from chapter 12 because I’m so excited to go more into the context behind Yuri’s words in the companion fic 

“So make me remember you when I do” - from chapter 13 because damn Yuuri

anonymous asked:

Do you have any pet peeves when it comes to fanfiction? Especially Twilight fanfiction?

Oooohhhhh boy. All those with cardiovascular problems better leave now because this is going to get very salty

Okay first off a small disclaimer: while we might be a small group now, Twilight is one of the biggest fandoms on ffnet. There is so much fanfiction out there for Twilight, and loads of it was written by very young, inexperienced writers who were just starting out and plainly writing wish-fullfillment fics with selfinserts that had little to do with Twilight or it’s characters. Obviously this doesn’t go for every Twific, there’s wonderful stuff out there, and even my pet peeves aren’t always annoying if they’re done well- the thing is just, in my experience they mostly aren’t.

I’ll try to keep this brief instead of going into a full-on rant, so I’ll literally make a list.
- ORBS ( I will leave the fic immediately no matter how good it is)
- the OC is vegetarian and the Cullens are super awed of that, but the OC never has any problems killing animals/ with them killing animals, their vegetarianism is just a plot device to make the OC special
- YOU GET A  SUPER SPECIAL GIFT! AND YOU GET A SUPER SPECIAL GIFT! EVERYBODY GETS A SUPER SPECIAL GIFT THAT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH THEIR CHARACTER
- OC’S without families or friends so they can easily join the Cullens and devote all their time to them, also OC’S with no interest or hobbies
- (this is more general, but I see it in twilight fics very often) over describing clothes. When your chapter is 2000 words and 700 of that are describing your characters outfit down to every detail, you’re going overboard.
- Those weird Carlisle spanks everyone fics????????
- Every OC has the Bella Experience and doesn’t struggle as a newborn at all
- ( this isn’t strictly something I dislike, just something I don’t really get???) The Major
-  whenever somebody involves Native American/Quileute heritage I get really tense cause that’s just a bag of bad things about to happen, like I once read a fic where the OC ( a white girl) could sing super well and went to bonfire night at the resort and then sang Colours Of The Wind from Pocahontas and the wolves were totally awed and that was a major YIKES
- mischaracterization of the canon characters ( even if it’s an AU they need to be recognizable)
- Mates/Imprints everywhere ( I really don’t share this idea that Mates or the same as Imprints and that you ~know~ as soon as you see them, which seems to be very popular in fanfic)
- Weird Names ( If your OC is white and Amercian and named Athena or Isis or whatever for no reason other than that you think it’s a cool name that’s just… no. don’t do it. Then give her a father obessed with mythology and make it a point that her name is kinda weird. Let her bond with Renesmesnesee over that)
- Any of the Cullens ( I excempt B/E from this) falling for teenagers
- 20 chapter fics with no plot and just fluff or smut ( I enjoy both, but rather as one-shots)
- Periodfeasts. No. Don’t do it.


there’s probably a thousand more, but I’ll stop now

Hello! I am really curious about your opinion on which are the most confident enneagram types to the least confident. Can you make a list? Also, I really like your blog. It has the best informations about enneagram and you make everything so easy to understand. Keep up the good work! :D

overall confidence is more related to health levels. a healthy 2w1 is more self-confident than a unhealthy 8w9
but for average health levels most to least self confident:

8w9
9w8
8w7
9w1
7w8
5w6
4w5
4w3
5w4
7w6
1w9
6w7
3w4
3w2
1w2
6w5
2w3
2w1

(the reason that 3s are fairly low on this list is that they may appear very self-confident but’s it’s all just a show. there are always visible signs that they are actually anxious as fuck: bitten nails, skin picking, constant checking in mirrors, …)

imrryr  asked:

recs plz!!1! u can shoot them to me in private ^^ i haven't finished a wlw book in months, excluding books i've already read before tbh, so anything would be greatly appreciated.

I’ll go ahead and just shoot this on my blog for any who care for it (disclaimer: obviously I rec these books because, in my opinion they are very, very good. As in top of my list for books in general. If you don’t generally like some of these genres, then I obviously can’t promise you’ll like the books. I can promise that they are overall well written; granted every book can have it’s flaws. Also, these all have happy wlw endings with no death for the wlw characters, and most of these are worlds without the oppressive atmosphere of homophobia and the rape culture that is so prevalent, imo, in many novels). If you want any actual reviews from me on these novels or more feedback, just holler. Otherwise I didn’t want to write a paragraph for each haha:

1: Iron & Velvet (book 1) and Shadows & Dreams (book 2) of the Kate Kane Paranormal Investigator series by Alexis Hall. Genre: urban fantasy; crime/mystery. Snark master 9000 narrative voice. First book takes a bit to get into, 2nd book is AMAZING. I love these books so much.

2. Ash by Malinda Lo. Genre: Young adult; fairy tale. A wlw retelling of Cinderella that is everything I want from a fairy tale.

3. The Raven and the Reindeer by T. Kingfisher. Genre: Young adult; fairy tale. Again, another very good fairy tale, Definitely took some unexpected turns for me.

4. Shell Game by Benny Lawrence. Genre: Pirate fantasy. Completely different take on the pirate fantasy genre that was very refreshing and very fun. The characters really made this for me. Warning for violence and domestic abuse, though.

5. Tipping the Velvet by Sarah Waters. Genre: Historical fiction. 2 words–Victorian lesbians. Beautifully written, amazing period piece. Warning for homophobia because well…it is historic. Also warning that it is actually written in that period style both in format and in prose, which might put some people off. But if you’re down with that…it really sets the bar. Truly a classic, I think.

These are all books that got high ratings by me, so they would be what I rec. Still on the search for more in general, but esp a good sci-fi wlw novel since that genre is noticeably absent on my list here. Lemme know if you enjoy any of these c:

Ok I’m gonna list a few games I have and I want recommendations for what I should play bc I’m bored
Prince of Persia (the Xbox 360 reboot) I think I’ve played this game through like twice it’s very simple and straightforward but occupying I guess
Deus ex human revolution: I got this game after reading good reviews but I just couldn’t really get into it I’ve given up twice after a few hours of playing. Idk if it’s the plot or the controls or the gameplay but it just didn’t really make sense or feel that rewarding for me
Skyrim: I’ve got the version w all the add ons, completed everything with a Mage play through, considering maybe trying a rogue character.
Fallout 3 GOTY: again completed w all addons, I think I’ve tried to replay and given up early on. I’ve played with all the like morally good outcomes so could try an evil character
Fallout NV legendary edition; same as 3, I didn’t really enjoy it as much though, but again there are other plot lines I could follow
Metro 33: like deus ex, spent a couple of hours but didn’t really get into it, but I’m more open to trying it again that deus ex

Pls help I’m bored

Dear god! very well done with this fic! I totally love A Little Tied Up from the beginning to the very end!! Because I’m a fan of bondage too XDD *adding to the “SS fav fic” list* (and I’ll a link to that list soon too)

Steve being all enthusiastic (and nerdy) with knots and Tony all bored with them until he found a good use for that knowledge hahaha!! Even Steve was right he might use it for some emergency, like on this AA episode where they had to forget about technology for 24 hours!

Also on the other hand….. I have to confess that just like Tony I thought this would head to another ending… Poor Tony!! XDD you’re too cruel with him!!

- Yuki

————

as for you being a fan of bondage, there is not enough of bondage in your art!!! (low key complaining, cough cough…)

Steve is just very passionate about things Tony finds very boring, but he copes with them out of love!

naaaah, don’t worry, after he listened to the lecture, Steve gave him a niiiiiice reward

thank you for your feedback!!

Quake has definitely surpassed Coulson in martial arts as well as most of SHIELD, I wonder is her Framework counterpart an Agent of HYDRA? Imagine long haired Daisy in the Quake suit.

Hi Anon!

I”m sure one of our talented manip makers could make that happen.

Wherever Daisy is, her Avatar is a result of someone else’s repaired regret.  So Coulson and May are high on that list for me.  Since the C Arc is Agents of Hydra, it makes sense that she will be affiliated with Hydra and part of a team too. 

So if not Hydra, it could be a version of the Rising Tide.   Or what’s left of Shield here.  

She and Ward have an apartment, so they aren’t lying too low whoever they are with.

Daisy is not going to be Quake in there and there is a very good chance that she doesn’t have her powers as well.  That she was never exposed to the Mists in the first place.   All of that will be there, ie there will be terragin crystals we just have to wait and see if she was or will be exposed to them here.  

official ranking of every turtle emoji on emojipedia

a beautiful friend. a wonderful smile. i will protect this perfect tortoise with my life. thank you.

just a cool and good turtle, going about its business. keep doing you, turtle.

simple, minimalistic, well executed. a solid turt.

a unique perspective on the humble turtle. it takes guts to break the mould like this. bravest turtle on the list.

a cool stylistic approach, but kinda lacking in personality.

the shading is really badly done, but the fundamentals are quite solid. an adequate turtle.

this is just the twitter one but less friend looking.

“turtles… they’re sort of weird and blobby, right?” - apple emoji designer, 2016

the style is very good. extremely well rendered. but unfortunately, this turt’s fuck ugly. look at its face. this turt is no friend of mine.

fisher price.

utterly disgusting.

I am delighted to find out that there’s a new quality meme in Russia, the Wizard “Fwoosh” Cat, fwoosh [вжух] being the sound effect for the magic wand waving. 

The Fwoosh Cat can do great magic in your every-day life, good and bad all at the same time.

“Fwoosh, you’ve got insomnia”

“Fwoosh, you’re adopted”

“Fwoosh, and money is gone”

“Fwoosh, you’re expelled” next to a list of expelled pupils in a university

“Fwoosh, black ice”

Obligatory money fwoosh

“Cannot fwoosh on this page”

“Fwoosh, and you can fwoosh on this page”

“If you see this image, then it’s your lucky day. You’ve been visited by The Great Wizard Cat, the wisest of all wizard cats of the wizard cat school. A curse was laid on you, and it will turn your life into a nightmare. Only the wizard cat can lift the curse and once again make your life wonderful and full of magic”

“I’m Unsubbing to Jontron But...” (YOUTUBER RECOMMENDATION MASTERPOST)

“…I still want to see video game reviews like the ones he does!”

-PeanutButterGamer: Follows a very similar style of game review to Jontron, but with minimal sketches, and focuses a bit more on the game itself rather than his own comedy. Less cut away gags, though the sketches that he does do are always entertaining enough to actually justify a cut away gag, something that Jontron surprisingly still has yet to perfect. His content is clean, like most of the Youtubers on this list, but clean in a sort of Tumblr level of obscure that gets a good laugh without offending anyone. To quote his Tumblr: “ I’m all for not offending people. I mean, I actively attempt to be as inoffensive as possible on videos and on social media, “. He also recently voiced his distaste for what Jon has been saying lately, a bold move, considering they work for the same company.

-BrutalMoose: Brutalmoose does both video game and TV show/movie reviews the same way Jon does, and unlike PBG, he does have a few videos with a bit more mature content in them, like his reviews of “adult” games. While he does play “mature” games from time to time, and the content/comedy of those games can be offensive, his own comedy is still clean, but on the borderline of dirty. The kind you’d see on the likes of the Simpsons. Jokes that are adult, but still don’t hurt anyone. (Also…Tumblr is kind of obsessed with the fact that he’s gay? Don’t go overboard with that info, kids.)

-SpaceHamster: If you were a fan of JonTron’s knockoff game videos, you’re gonna love SpaceHamster! He’s done multiple knockoff and rom hack compilation videos, and his humor is up there with PBG. Heck, PBG and him even game together on PBG’s side channel!


“…I still want to see movie reviews like the ones he does!”

-Nostalgia Critic: If you’re looking for completely inoffensive comedy, then Nostalgia Critic probably isn’t the first place you’re gonna want to go, but hear me out. Nostalgia Critic’s offensive content differs from JonTron’s in that not only is he self aware of what is and isn’t acceptable in comedy, he’s willing to apologize when a joke goes too far and learn from his mistakes, instead of attacking his own critics. He’s made videos discussing “the line” in comedy, does countless charity shoutouts, and started the “Where’s The Fair Use” movement, a movement created in hopes of holding YouTube accountable for taking down videos that fall under Fair Use laws. He’s a genuinely decent guy!

-CinemaSins: I feel like CinemaSins is popular enough that I hardly even need to signal boost them, but their content also falls under that “adult but harmless” category. Not only that, but they’re not afraid to call out movies like 50 Shades of Gray for being ungodly shitty.

“…I still want to see sketch comedy like the sketch comedy he does!”

-JacksFilms: Remember that guy? The Your Grammar Sucks guy? You might also know him as “the guy who made parody videos calling out both Leafy and Keemstar for being shitty uncreative people” or “the guy who has videos featuring fans art and complimenting them”. Another genuinely decent human being.

ok ok listen i know a lot of people have been bringing up the fact that they dont like brooklyn nine nine because they feel like it’s a “pro-cop show” and it’s “idolizing a gross system” but like?? please try to understand that that is not the point of this show at all?? they have explicitly stated the problem with the police system in one of the episodes, where amy lists real concerns and holt puts up a poster that says “tell us how we can be better.” this is one of the very few shows who i see actually addressing real problems like gun control issues, homophobia, racism, and transphobia (it was just a mention, but still way more than any other show), while still being lighthearted and hilarious. just because this show is set in a cop setting does not mean they are praising anything?? please don’t diss an genuinely funny, good show so quickly because of that. it’s not perfect but it’s trying so much more than anything else on tv right now.

Okay, let me be the one to say what we’re all low-key thinking about episode 8:

It didn’t have enough Victuri moments.

And not only that, but also the fact that you could probably pass the ones that we did get all off as ‘acting for the cameras’.

Or the fact that the kiss from ep 7 was never mentioned or otherwise acknowledged in the story.

And I think all of us may worry: Did YOI finally reach its limit? Did episode 7 have no significance to Victor and Yuuri’s relationship at all? Did they mark the kiss off their list and went “good enough, let’s forget about their mutual attraction now”?

In my opinion? No.

Is Victuri still canon? Yes, very much so.

Why did episode 8 focus on them so little then?

I think this much is apparent by now: Yuri on Ice has very little time left. We literally have only 4 episodes to go, one of which will be Rostelecom Free Skate, and at least two of which will be the Grand Prix Final. This time around, Victor and Yuuri’s screentime was taken by the 4 new skaters (not sure if it was entirely necessary) and Yurio (which was absolutely necessary and I’d argue that we didn’t get enough of him). And trust me when I say that I love the creators’ ambitions and their desire to show that each skater is unique and the world of figure skating is diverse and interesting, and their dedication is admirable but we just don’t have enough time for all of that.

However, I also don’t think that the focus will stay away from Victor and Yuuri for long now. This episode was important in terms of establishing the new skaters, but I believe that in ep 9, Victor and Yuuri will be in the main picture once more (even without Victor being physically there, and God, this can go in so many directions).

Is YOI trying to do more than it has the time for? Yes, absolutely, and it might just be a shot in the leg for the production team.

But does that mean that we should worry? No.

Yuri on Ice has taught us many times that it can surpass our expectations. I think we can trust it to impress us again.

laughter

aries: loud, convulsive, uncontrollable. they can howl. very contagious 

taurus  ~ witch’s cackle, high pitched 
gemini - catchy, mischevious pixie giggle 

cancer ~ laughing til crying, wheezer, baby cry laugh sometimes embarrassment  
Leo ~ Lion’s Roar, a gaffaw, hands flailing wildly, thighs are slapped, the heart rate increases 
virgo ~ covering their mouths, bursts out, shrill high pitch 

Libra ~ beautiful laugh, melodic, can be an embarrassed giggle. good at the fake laugh 
scorpio - a snicker, good control of facial muscles, but they can find the absolute hilarious in things

sagittarius - belly laugh, a contagious carry on, the eyes widen and smile too
Capricorn ~ a big belly roar, the body is convulsive, the more they try to suppress it the louder and more uncontrollable it becomes. loud, repetitious, like a split personality 

Aquarius - impulsive bursts of laughter, a bit of a cacophony. the sarcastic laugh, ‘ha’. clever enough to master it 

Pisces - a big build up, contagious, begins with a grin and becomes uncontainable, often toward tears. its a stoner laugh, whats so funny, only pisces sees the joke
