this isn't even from that long ago

this is meant to be presented as one big long image, but because i don’t have a do-you-love-the-color-of-the-sky kind of death wish, i had to chop it into pieces.

anyway, here’s the long awaited reveal of our data from the fallout survey project we did a few months back. over 2,000 of you contributed to this, so that’s pretty neat!
there are a couple errors and spacing issues my partner and i are too lazy to fix so. here you go.

i have a PSA to people: pls know that d&m's incredibly unhealthy, toxic dynamic isn't friendship, any more than it's a real relationship. they share space & interact for PR purposes. tbh i wonder if they even talk when not required. whatever amicable feelings there may have been years ago is long gone. if there was friendship there, or even any respect, this wouldn't have devolved into this mess. what they have is a v fucked-up business arrangement. (ok thx for letting me soapbox)

Anon you won’t get any argument from me. I sometimes question if there was ever a friendship. Seems to me that it started as 2 people with mutual friends. One of whom was required to have a beard. The other of whom was so hungry for fame she was willing to sell her soul. And as I said the other day. I’d guess the hiring of her was the single biggest mistake made.

It’s been evident from very early on that there is no love of any kind or respect between these two. I always remember the first photo that planted the seed of doubt in my head that all was not as sold. They were at Joey’s parents. She had her hand on his knee. It just screamed possessive as opposed to intimate.

And I won’t lie. The series of pictures/videos we have gotten lately. They make me extremely uncomfortable. It’s one after the other of her trying to exhibit aggressive behavior and exert power over him. The kick. The fist at the Tonys. Her fingernails aggressively placed near his throat.

I often wonder what their interactions are like at these events when the camera is off. We get glimpses. Times when they don’t realize they are being filmed or photographed. And I can only imagine if feels like hell on earth when they are forced to share space.

I don’t think I can ever say it enough. This nightmare needs to end and she needs to exit his life permanently. And I can’t wait until the day she is left with nothing.

so we gonna conveniently ignore how ksoo made a colorist joke about jongin just a few months ago on that star 360 show? really? exo's colorism isn't some distant long forgiven and forgotten thing from 2013

i actually forgot about that until u mentioned it tbh lol rip me exo has made so many colorist comments that its all blurred together anyways all i was trying to say earlier is i dont excuse exo or vixx or shinee or gsd or mamamoo or exid or any of my faves from making colorist comments im aware that theyve ALL done it and they all STILL do it (even if they’ve learned to stop doing it in public bc of pr reasons) and its disheartening and disappointing bc they’ve all fucked up but you can still love a thing/person/group and hate it simultaneously for the problematic things they have had said and done

Guys, it’s not even 4 and it feels like late evening. The sun is RED in the sky, ash is still falling (this particular piece flew in front of my lense when I was taking an image of the sun), and we can’t see our mountains which are only miles away due to how much smoke and ash is in the air.

i’m crying over 12/clara over here, i don’t even

i think it’s so lovely that an entire season builds to the doctor asking clara again to come with him. there’s always something so powerful about that moment where the doctor offers all of time and space to someone. it always gives me chills, and it’s fascinating to see a companion who goes through a long period of not knowing exactly what she wants. ideally, they both just wanted their relationship to keep going like nothing had changed, but it HAD, and they never knew how to deal with it. it’s almost critical that 12, as his new self, asks her again to join him, but the most he can manage is a “if you want” in “deep breath.” 

oh my god, and then the whole season never settles? they both try to make the relationship limited and conditional. she only wants to be on the TARDIS on certain days, he doesn’t want her to bring another person into it, she sneaks people on board, she says she never wants to see him again. “get back in your lonely bloody TARDIS and you don’t come back!” even when they decide to keep going, clara’s still lying. it’s secret, it’s unsure. their big emotional climax is clara locking them both out of the TARDIS and nearly making any invitation moot. 

and they go through all that and their big christmas miracle is the doctor – finally – getting to give her a big, proper “come with me” speech, because they’ve both buried what they really wanted to say for so long, but now they’re both finally sure about what they want, and the need to be together is stronger than the fear of things changing, and it’s just totally different from every other doctor/companion arc, because the TARDIS invitation is more important than the adventures beyond it? it’s the act of expressing it that’s so important? she’s earned and deserved it long ago, but she wasn’t sure she wanted it and he wasn’t sure how to say it, and OH MY GOD

all of time and all of space is sitting out there. a big blue box. please, don’t even argue.” 

We really wanted to show what Sheriff Stilinski’s life would be like without Stiles,” executive producer Jeff Davis tells TVLine. “A long time ago, we thought, ‘What if he loses Stiles, but gets something back in return? What if he gets his wife back? What does that mean? Where the f–k did she come from? How is this possible? That’s a big part of the mystery, and we have a lot of fun with it.
—  Well colour me confused Jeff, cause I have no idea what’s going on!

Sooo, I think my agent may be a #shmagent. It isn't that they're a bad person trying to deceive vulnerable writers, but they don't seem to be good at selling books. Long story short: I was really excited to work with this agent, even though they were new. That was a year ago, but since then they've only sold one book (to a press that accepts submissions from unaccented authors). Now they've signed a bunch of authors, and I'm not sure when I'm going on submission. Do I run now, am I paranoid?

If you are REALLY worried they are a #schmagent… they probably are. I know how hard it is to admit that your “dream agent” might not be so dreamy, so if you are thinking it there is something off…. well.

There are two varieties of #schmagent: The truly duplicitous scamster, and the much more common merely ineffectual. (There are certainly hybrid breeds as well, but let’s assume good intentions for most.) How can you tell? Here are some warning signs:

* DEFINITE SCAMSTER: If they ask you to pay them anything. ANYTHING. “Reading fees”, “Editorial fees” etc. RUN. If they offer to act as a publisher for you. RUN. (This is different from agent-assisted SELF-Publishing, which is a thing. But the AGENT isn’t the publisher in that case. YOU are.) If their website has a lot of talk about “revolutionizing publishing” but no actual BOOKS on it? RUN. If they won’t tell you who else they rep, or what books they’ve sold? RUN. Poor communication from the beginning - typo or grammar-ridden or otherwise strange emails or phone calls? RUN. 

Actually, keeping it a buck, if I got any messed up / shady vibes at all, I’d RUN, because guess what: I don’t want to put my professional and financial life in the hands of somebody who SEEMS shady, even if they aren’t actively DOING anything shady.

* POSSIBLY PROBLEMATIC: If they are listed as bad in Preditors and Editors, or on the Absolute Write Water Cooler, they are very likely problematic, or at least worth doing due diligence on. These sites are not infallible by any means… but they are a great place to start.

* VERY LIKELY USELESS: Brand new, no background in publishing, and at an agency nobody ever heard of? Maybe a problem. Many clients and no sales after a year or more, or their ONLY sales seem to be to micro-presses or digital only? Maybe a problem. The agency seems to have been started very recently, and/or started by people who themselves have no background in publishing or experience with a larger agency? Probably a problem. 

* PROBABLY FINE!!! Everyone starts somewhere. If you are looking at a brand new agent with few sales, that’s not a big problem… IF they are with a well-established agency and have successful mentors.

Agenting is an apprentice business. You can’t learn it from the ether. You can’t learn it in a class. Anyone can SAY they are an agent. But that doesn’t mean they will be able to actually help you, even if they have the best intentions in the world.

To succeed as an agent, it helps to be smart and a clear communicator, and it doesn’t hurt to have a bold personality. But IMO, every agent MUST start with at least two of the following: 1) A strong, multi-year background in publishing; 2) A healthy network of established connections, or an agency with the same; 3) Engaged and successful mentors.

A smart person can probably figure out how to succeed without ONE of these before they start… after all, you can make connections if you start with the right background and mentors. You might not need mentors if you have the background and connections. And you might not need any background in publishing, if you have great mentors and strong agency connections. But without two, I guarantee they will fail as an agent. And bring any client unlucky enough to sign with them down in the process.

Now – maybe you have read all this and realize, no, they aren’t a #schmagent… but I’m still not happy. It could be that they are fine, they just aren’t the right agent FOR YOU. If you are not seeing success and you don’t feel like you are able to communicate with this person, or you aren’t seeing eye-to-eye about your career – that doesn’t mean they are bad OR you are bad. It just might be time to part ways. And that’s OK too. 

Anyway. If you want to DM me their name, I can do some digging. But… yeah. Good luck!

When you say "disastrous year", isn't that really only talking about Louis. The other boys have all been moving along right? I don't know what the state of Chiam is, but Harry and Niall seem to have removed Syco from their lives long ago.

My whole point in that part is that that is what Syco wants you to believe. You don’t think Harry wouldn’t prefer to not have to be so cryptic about what he’s doing? That he’s happy that the fandom impression is that he screwing over his bandmates and just doing his own thing? Even some Larries are convinced that Harry is making moves with no regard to Louis. And Niall’s thing has always been to seem unproblematic to serve as a foil for the others. Syco continued that this year. That doesn’t mean Syco is removed from their lives, just that the constraints Syco imposed require negative, rather than positive, activities. But the Syco story has been that Louis is a dad with no real career prospectives; Harry hates his bandmates and is proceeding with his own activities regardless of how it affects them (he can’t even be loyal to Kendall, he’s so self-centered); Liam is a traitor, largely irrelevant, and yet also Cheryl’s lapdog; and Niall is a traitor but not really worth your time because he’s just doing sports stuff anyway (before the song release at least). I don’t think those are the images any of them want for their future, and I don’t think “disastrous” is too strong a word considering how the fandom has been guided by these images and the infighting that’s occurred.

Closed RP

Riku sighed as he climbed the steps to Sora’s front porch a wiggling bundle of cat in his arms. His dad was home and already drunk leaving him with no desire to stay home or to leave Light behind.

He knocked when he reached the front door more out of habit and being polite then anything. Light gave an annoyed meow from his arms even as he sighed letting himself in. He’d been given permission to do so a long time ago and Sora’s mom actually got annoyed with him if he stood and waited to be let in to long.

“Hey Sora!” The silver haired teen called hoping the other was home. If not he’d just ask the other’s mom if it was okay if he stayed over. Light gave another loud meow from his arms green feline eyes darting around the room in intrest.

reminder of kai and d.o's reaction when they saw a kaisoo banner LAST YEAR. if this is reason for them to stop interacting, then they should have stopped interacting a long time ago (www(.)youtube(.)com/watch?v=7u2pghLkkHE) why be hung up about them not interacting. what fans should be worried is when they start interacting too obviously and in our face. that's when you should start worrying because that isn't like them at all. i've been a shipper from the start and that's how they work.

[x] OMG YES DID YOU SEE HOW kyungsoo kept glacing at the bar and how jongin smirked and look super happy after noticing it ???? i think they are so glad that fans support their relationship even though they have to hide it , they don’t mind if some of us believe in it and most importantly support it !!!

i know anon , i cant agree more !  it’s kaisoo they are like that , if people aren’t satisfied with the few moments they get from them thye probably should look for another otp because thy are  kaisoo and they don’t do fanservice with each other ^^
