I am so freaking frustrated because I have like 12 worlds in my head complete with difference species and governments and all this stuff, but I have nothing to DO with them and I am dying. I'm lucky to have a boyfriend who will roleplay with me but I keep changing the setting every two days and just. Ah. Sorry I'm venting the frustration of a world creator.

1) I’m SUPER IMPRESSED by world creators. Like holy crap there are so many mechanics to sort through, how???? I have a friend who’s got two parallel worlds with unique social, political, and religious histories. Like, in TOTALITY. It blows my mind.

2) I recycle characters all. the. time. Dead plots/half-forgotten plots leaving interesting, multi-faceted characters without a home.  So you’re kinda shopping your characters around different universes it sounds like!

3) Convince your characters that it’s like vacation. A continuous, unwanted vacation that skips between genres but a VACATION.

4) Let us cry together over our fictional words. Let us feel our feelings and burn complicated maps that become IRRELEVANT WHEN A NEW IDEA POPS UP. LET US BURN THEM ALL

when people insist on misunderstanding why you do or don’t like a ship

Don’t assume that differences in ship preference are based on you being a “superior reader” or some crap like that. Just… don’t.

There could be two people who have read the same book 10 times, taken notes, written meta, etc. who still interpret it differently and enjoy different aspects of it. It’s literally personal preference, and even canon ships that are 100% Established and Healthy and Endgame can be disliked, for completely legitimate reasons.

Reasons such as:

I Freaking Feel Like It.

Writingsfromaghost here. Ok, so apparently I struck a nerve & my blog got removed. No warning or anything. I went in to answer some asks & discovered both my email & pass no longer worked. Went & checked via my personal blog & found that Ghost had been completely removed. Ugh. I'm pissed but laughing at the same damn time. Cause, really? You that damn scared & butt hurt??? Anyway, I will still be posting fic on A03 under Writingsofaghost. Hope to see you there. Sorry for the crap, guys!

Hey exclusionists.

When we’re telling you that something you said resembles TERF rhetoric, we aren’t calling you TERFs. We’re telling you that what you’re saying seems to have a foundation on similar things, and that spreading the same type of posts/sayings/whatever as TERFs use is dangerous because it normalizes the rhetoric and allows TERF ideals to slip passed people’s radars.

My reaction if someone were to tell me that something I said resembled TERF rhetoric?

“Oh crap! Sorry! I’ll delete/edit the post. Please let me know how I can do better in the future to keep from endangering trans people.”

Because my number one priority is to make sure I’m not helping to perpetuate or normalize TERF rhetoric. Screaming about how I’m not a TERF would do absolutely no good, and would just further push that using the same language as this horrible group of people is completely fine - which of course it’s not.

Do better.

Like I think what I’m maddest about above all is Cedric?? Like not even the fact that the fate of the wizarding world hinged on Cedric’s death, it’s that the fate of the wizarding world hinged on Cedric becoming a death eater. LIKE…. HOW DARE U COME AT ME LIKE THIS JK LIKE H O  W    D   A R  E 

Cedric’s death is one of the most important events in the entire series. Tonally and emotionally for both the reader and Harry. It’s significant. When I was eight years old and reading Goblet of Fire I threw my copy of the book across the room when Cedric’s body hit the ground. It completely changed the Harry Potter books for me. It’s a turning point for the series and for Harry as a person.

THEN WE HAVE THIS FUCKING PLAY.

This mess not only trivialises Cedric’s death within the narrative, it destroys it as an emotional blow for the reader. Cedric’s death was significant because Cedric himself was not significant. He was seventeen year old kid, he was on the quidditch team, he had a girlfriend, he was normal, kind, happy. His death was important bc he’s the first real death we experience in the narrative and it’s just this normal kid; a casualty of a war he had nothing to do with. His death charges the events of the next book, and marks a change in Harry that drives his characterisation for the rest of the series. 

Harry is plagued by nightmares of Cedric for months. Cedric’s ghost haunts his relationship with Cho, and both bolsters and hinders his ability to teach Dumbledore’s Army. His perspective of Cedric’s death defines the tragedy of Order of the Phoenix, and of the series as a whole:  “all that stuff was luck” Harry says of his achievements to the DA kids. It’s all luck. Throughout Harry Potter we keep coming back to luck. It was luck that saw Cedric in the graveyard that night and it was luck that saw Voldemort choose the Potters instead of the Longbottoms on Halloween in 1981. A prophecy that speaks with the surety of fate comes down to a chance between two different boys. The dichotomy between fate and chance and the fallacy of being “chosen” in Harry Potter is thematically critical to the series, and Cedric’s death is a part of that. 

He knew all the spells, he was one of the best wizards Hogwarts had to offer. The Goblet of Fire chose him. “He did know this stuff,” Harry says, “He was really good at it, or he could never have got to the middle of that maze…but if Voldemort really wants to kill you, you don’t stand a chance.” The absolute randomness of death and suffering is held in the grief that lies in Cedric’s wake, and it echoes through the next three books. Cedric, who was good, and kind, and normal, who died because he was in the wrong place at the wrong time.

And now?? You come at me like “oh don’t worry! Cedric’s death is a Good Thing because otherwise this normal kid who has never been presented as anything but kind and well intentioned would have become a death eater that went on to shape how the world falls to absolute evil!!”  LIKE??? WHAT KIND OF EMOTIONAL NARRATIVE STRUCTURE IS THIS. It strips the event of Cedric’s death of all pathos. It completely destroys its emotional significance. It’s so completely at odds with the thematic progression of the original series I’m actually astounded to see it set down in ink by the very woman who wrote it.

There’s a lot of crap I read in that synopsis that doesn’t fly but this is the sticking point for me, it’s so utterly jarring that despite an overwhelming amount of evidence to the contrary, I’m still tempted to believe that this is all an elaborate hoax. 

Counting Sheep

AU where Dean doesn’t kick human!Cas out of the bunker and everyone gets to be happy for once.

Cas is having trouble sleeping, so Dean agrees to help him out.

After showing Cas to the shower and pointing him in the direction of the bedroom he’ll be taking, Dean throws himself onto his bed without undressing. He is asleep within moments, exhausted from a day spent driving and worrying and searching and praying that Cas was alright.

He has always been a light sleeper, though, so it isn’t a surprise when he is woken up only a few hours later by a sound from down the hall. He sits up, listening closely. He doesn’t hear anything now, but it seemed to come from the direction of Cas’ room. A little worried now, Dean slips out of bed and crosses his room, poking his head out the door into the hallway. Cas’ bedroom door is closed. Dean pads down the hall and pauses in front of the door. The light is on inside. After a moment of hesitation, Dean turns the door handle and pushes the door open.

Going to a photography forum with a question is completely worthless. You ask something simple like, “how do I trigger this remote flash I already have with this camera body I already have. But instead of getting an answer you’re told that the equipment you have is crap and given a shopping list for $10,000 worth of better equipment (that number is only a slight exaggeration) and until you do that they can’t help you at all.

Of course, these are the same people who will have a complete hissy if you compliment their equipment when you see their photography.

my girlfriend and I decided that Zen and Jumin are d e f i n i t e l y exes. Thoughts?

I like to think that in their previous lives,Zen was a top-notch handsome af agent (with slicked back hair ofc) riding on his badass unicorn around to complete his missions
and Jumin was his sworn enemy, one with that big neat clichè moustache who sits all day in his revolving chair with “Elizabeth 1st” on his lap. And everytime he turns around there’d be that hella dramatical music playing in the bg, accompanied by the sound of a storming night outside, while he talks about his plans of work domination under regime of his perfect cat.

………so yeaaaaa

"why are they always onyxes and obsidians" because colorful jewels have girl cooties duh black is the only MANLY color

It just… yeah. I really like Steven’s own pretty casual relationship with gender and gender expression and masculinity and the whole pink roses aesthetic - and this has all been said a billion times and far better than I could manage right now, so I don’t really want to get into it. But anyway stuff like this feels kinda jarring, and as a bonus is usually filled to the brim with completely superfluous attempts at being ~edgy~.

You know who I can’t wait to actually see? Bismuth.

Because holy crap

this thing? Wow.

♡ jimin from future hearts ♡ I hope these translate well on other devices/monitors, these are my first digital drawings & fan art so I’m sorry they aren’t super great (+ i did these on my kindle w/ an art app lmao) I also hope it’s okay I changed the tattoos from your edits, they were a pain & i re-did them like 14-15 times??? I kind of got the hang of them in the second drawing, yet they still look like crap. ;-; I’ll do much better on Jungkook, i promise. But I hope you like these anyways & thank you for your amazing writing! 💕

@bangtanlegion I CRY YOU HURT ME, THIS IS AMAZING :”) THANK YOU SO MUCH. YOU ARE LOVELY AND PERFECT AND LITERALLY EVERYTHING

Hi. How do you bounce back from failure? I just feel like crap bc I'm really not motivated in school and my family is pressuring me and my friends are all smart and I just feel like shutting down. Ughhh. Sorry for the ramble. Love you

it’s totally okay to feel like that. your feelings are valid.

  • here’s what i usually do when i’m feeling down 
  • sometimes, you just gotta focus on yourself and shut out everyone else
    • that’s completely okay
    • it’s easier said than done, but compare yourself to only your past self and look only at your own progress. you are not like anyone else because you are you. 
  • motivation can be tough to constantly keep up. i rely on self-discipline to get me through school when motivation isn’t enough. i have a post on developing self-discipline here
  • here’s my page with all of the advice / tips posts that i’ve made. maybe there’s something specific that might help you with school stuff?

“I’m going to be completely honest here. When I first heard that [tyler] was going to be writing a book, because I was very biased about youtuber books at the time, I thought, great. It’s going to be some self-indulgent crap, because that was sort of the perception I had of youtubers in their 20’s writing books about their life, I’m like, you haven’t even lived your life. This book changed my opinion on youtubers writing books, honestly, and to be able to do that, you know it must be a good book.”

Rant moment here……..I guess

I really want to bring cool and new stuff for my blog, I feel that everything that I do it’s not good enough. I don’t feel confident about my art.

This art block is killing me to the point that I cried just because I can’t do a single design for Idle and Siren’s childrens.

I don’t know what to do anymore, should I continue my comic, should I forget about it and give up of it? I don’t know.

Reality is breaking me. Everything that I thought I could do to gain and be good at life is being taken away from me. Maybe I should leave tumblr and give up…..

I don’t feel that I’ve been doing enough, and when I do it doesn’t come out good as I expected so I just leave it behind.

“Rey but you’re only 14 you still have much time to think what you’re going to do with yer life”. No I don’t. In my country, when you get to high school, this three last years, usually you choose a class to study what you want to do with your life and this really sucks. My dreams is being crushed and I can’t stop this. I’m crying while I write this post because I don’t understand how I get to the point of leaving tumblr. The social media that changed my life and, I met so many awesome peoples that helped me pass through a lot of hard stuff. My life is a crap right now. I’m a completely mess.

Should I leave. Should I stay. I honestly don’t know anymore……

Here’s a sloppy Kaneki. I’ve tried to draw a full body version of Shironeki like this but in the end it never ended well, but, finally, one that doesn’t look completely horrible, if very sketchy.

Well you are the one, the one that lies close to me
Whispers “Hello, I’ve missed you quite terribly”
I fell in love, in love with you suddenly
Now there’s no place else I could be but here in your arms

Happy EdWin day everyone!
