Bucky was headed for glory as an Olympic champion boxer, before WWII changed everything. Now he’s washed up and dead eyed, rattling around Brooklyn and fighting in illegal bare knuckle matches.
Years after the war has ended an actor called Steve Rogers sees him fight. Months later, Bucky gets a call inviting him to L.A. to work on a film, and he finds something worth fighting for.

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

ye, death of the outsider felt... i hesitate to call it "fanfiction-y" because i've read fics that explored the whole human!outsider concept with a lot more thought that the actual game did. but just the idea that removing him from the void (through whichever ending) somehow "completes" the story arc that began from jessamine's assassination was such an odd premise to begin with. like i feel that plot point was already resolved with dh1's dlcs and dh2 kind of had its own self-contained plot.

You know, I wasn’t going to say it but whatever:

I honestly feel like they had an idea or a possible premise for further installments and for that the Outsider had to be removed from the Void, by whatever means necessary. 

Now, because they had written themselves into a corner and couldn’t find a plausible way to get rid of him, the Deus Ex Machina Dagger was born with a side dish of massive character derailment for Daud and Billie, who both regressed back to how they were before any growth that was done during DH1, Knife of Dunwall, Brigmore Witches and DH2, with some of the worst, cringe-inducing lines I’ve ever read in a Dishonored game.

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:

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.


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. 

I know, I know, the banner is complete crap but that is besides the point my dearies! THANK YOU SO SO MUCH FOR 800+ FOLLOWERS! I appreciate all of  you so much and I’m so grateful that all of you lovely sweethearts follow me! 


The 100 Hiatus Day #109

Do you think Octavia ever talks to Lincoln in the bunker? When she’s alone in her bed at night does she stare at the ceiling and whisper words to her lost love? Does she ask for his advice, wishing desperately that he was there with her? Because maybe then she would know what to do. Maybe she wouldn’t be so lost. When she feels overwhelmed and trapped in the bunker does she speak to him to busy her mind? Does she say it out loud, her voice barely a whisper? Or does she keep it locked inside her own head where no one can hear but her? Does her heart break every time she hears the complete and utter silence that follows her words?

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.

01 of 05 - Modern Compendium: Overlord - Dragon Lagarfljotsormr

The Lagarfljotsormr, or Lagarfljot Worm, is an ancient monster who has adapted to the modern world with almost uncanny ease. The earliest recorded reports of this lake-spanning serpent come down to us from the folktales of ancient Iceland, making this one of the very few creatures who has been able to make the leap from old world mythology to new world Cryptozoology.

In its earliest incarnations, the Lagarfljotsormr is a monstrous dragon that grew out of a tiny worm after a young girl used the worm to protect a small golden ring. The creature was consumed by greed and grew to such proportions that a local hero had to track the beast down in order to stop its attacks on the countryside. In this aspect, the Lagarfljotsormr is a pretty typical Scandinavian-type dragon, a greedy, hoarding beast that serves largely as the target for some likely lad to prove his mettle against. In modern times, the beast has become a far more typical lake serpent, with reports of vaguely defined many-humped creatures slipping around the ice of Lake Lagarfljot. High profile videos purporting to show a serpent in the lake have surfaced as recenty as 2012. The resulting jump in tourism has led the nearby town of Egilsstaðir to take steps to preserve the culture and tradition of the Lagarfljot Worm, and frankly, I’m not sure I could draw a more perfectly straight line from local folktale to local Cryptid if I tried.

Ultimately, the main thing that holds Lagarfljotsormr back from the high ranks of the Dragon family is just how local it is. Few people outside of Iceland know of the Lagarfljotsormr legends, and the beast remained almost completely unknown in Cryptozoology circles until that 2012 video was released. Honestly, the worm has just about everything a Cryptid needs to grow, so I wouldn’t be at all surprised to see it eventually become far more high profile, but for now, it remains in the middle of the Dragon family.

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

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


♡ 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! 💕



“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.”

I just saw a picture of Jeonghan with his really short pre-debut hair like a week ago and was like wtf?? Why did he look like he was 25 at 18 and now looks like he's 20 at almost 22?? But seriously, this man can pull off anything

you see anon, this is a phenomenon known as “duality of man,” known as the way someone can display two completely opposite attributes. example: jeonghan looked older when he was younger, how does he look younger when he’s older now? another example: how does jeonghan pull off both sexy and cute at the same time? truly the duality of man.
