this isn't too bad i think

  • fanfic writer: *writing* Oh wow, they are going to love this. This is by far my best work!
  • fic: *witty lines* *perfect love making* *fluffy enough to kill us all* *a dash of angst, a smidgen of hurt/comfort*
  • fanfic writer: Oh man. This is it. This will be my legacy! *sweats into fic* *bleeds into fic* *cries into fic* *spends days perfecting the grammar and verbage and sex scenes* *has 15 betas look over it*
  • fanfic writer: Okay. It is finally time to release my baby on the world. Here you go fandom. You're welcome.
  • fandom: Ha, cute. *like* *kudos*
  • fanfic writer: :/
  • * * *
  • same fanfic writer: *writing* Whatever. This is shit, I don't even care right now. A singing squirrel? Sure, let's do it. Haha, cheesy lines that make no sense, sure. Grammatical errors out the wazoo? Why not. No one's going to read this piece of crap anyway, I literally wrote it on a scrap of 1 ply toilet paper with a broken yellow crayon.
  • fanfic writer: LOL *post*
  • fanfic writer: *sigh*
From what I've listened so far:
  • Wolf 359: Aliens? They like classical music, and we're going to exploit them because ~capitalism~.
  • The Penumbra Podcast: Aliens? Their stuff is pretty cool, but they're extinct and we live here now.
  • Kakos Industries: Aliens? Great gardeners. We're taking credit for their existence. If they try to conquer Earth, we're taking credit for that too.
  • Welcome to Night Vale: Aliens? Whaaaaaaat? Who said anything about aliens??? They TOTALLY don't run the government and use humanity as a testing ground for reality-altering technology. LOOK AT THIS CUTE CAT AND ALSO MY HOT SCIENTIST HUSBAND STOP THINKING ABOUT ALIENS WE'RE NOT SUPPOSED TO THINK ABOUT THE ALIENS!!!!!
  • Alice Isn't Dead: Aliens? *deep sigh* This country is obsessed with the idea of "otherness". We label those who are different from us, those we deem unworthy of sharing this land, as "other". As "illegal aliens". Why? Is it such a crime to be different? Is otherness inherently bad?

there are some respects (especially as regards worldbuilding) in which LOTR is a lot more nuanced and detailed than many later users of the genre conventions it helped popularize and so there’s some stuff that Tolkienesque fantasy gets criticised for that Tolkien himself doesn’t actually tend to do

there’s obviously plenty to criticise in LOTR itself, but it’s not always what seems obvious based on later examples of the genre, and it’s fascinating to see how those tropes have mutated

Sometimes I just have this overwhelming feeling of hatred for the human race. This is how I know it is time to hermit.

Hey Writers!

You! Yea you! Out there! You know why you can’t write that amazing thing that someone else wrote? Because they wrote it! But you, YOU, can write something equally as amazing! And it’ll be amazing because it came from you! We need to stop comparing our work to others! Everyone’s words are unique, which is why you always look at something and ‘God, I wish I could’ve written something like this’ and then feel bad about yourself and your writing. 

That thing you read? Sure, it’s amazing, but just because you wrote something doesn’t mean it’s not amazing. You’re amazing too!

A sign from your friendly neighborhood fic writer,

Someone who does this shit all the time.

What kind of girl they would date
  • This is my opinion, about what I feel they would find attractive traits in girls. You don't have to agree with this, this is just my personal opinion.
  • Harry potter: I think Harry would date someone who would be very understanding. She would give him space if he needed and will be a listening ear when he needs it. She will be someone that will always be there for him. I also think that she would be kind, maybe a Hufflepuff, yet very brave. She wouldn't be afraid to stand up for herself and the ones she loves. She would stand up for Harry, too, although he didn't need it.
  • Ron Weasley: I think Ron would date someone who was in Hufflepuff. I just think he needs someone who thinks he is just as important as Harry Potter. I think he needs someone who will support him and tell him how important he is to her personally. She would be kind, and smart but would rather spend her time outside in the sun than studying. She would be someone who enjoys the little things. I also think she would be on the sensitive side, wanting love and being afraid of rejection.
  • Draco Malfoy: I think Draco needs someone who is a really good listener and can deal with a lot of his problems and talk. I don't think she would be jealous. I do think she would be a Slytherin. They would fight a lot, just because she could be a bitch when she had enough. I think she would also not give in in just a few hours. I'm pretty sure they could have fights for days because they are both just very stubborn. I think she won't like Muggleborns, just like Draco. That would be one thing they had in common. i don't think she would hate on 'blood traitors' and not on the other Houses unless she had a good reason. She would also like Quidditch and only cheer for him.
  • Fred Weasley: Fred would date an extrovert, someone who loves to laugh and isn't shy. He would like someone who is bad at hiding how they feel, making them an open book. I think she would love to prank and barely ever gets jealous. She would, however be less understanding for his problems and would just laugh at him getting detention( unless with Umbridge, of course). I think that she would be very sarcastic and bubbly. She would have a lot of friends, guy friends, too. That was something Fred wouldn't like too much. I think she and her guy friends would often innocently flirt, making Fred angry and causing small fights. He knows she would never cheat, because one of her good traits is loyal, something I think Fred needs.
  • George Weasley: George, unlike his twin would date someone on the shy side. Not very shy, but more to herself, with less friends. She would be very kind and sweet. She would take her studies very seriously and in the beginning, she wouldn't like his pranks. She would grow into them and even covering for the twins. She would never be a part of them, however. She would like to just lay outside in the grass with George, and he would like that too. It would just be the two of them, kissing, hugging, laughing. She would be very funny, just not many people know that.
  • Neville Longbottom: Definitively a sweet girl. However, she won't be very shy, she would be more outspoken and not afraid to tell people what she thinks. She would listen to all of Neville's problems and when necessary, she would tell him to snap out of it and go o with his life.
  • Oliver Wood: I think Oliver would date someone who LOVES Quidditch. I guess everyone knew. She doesn't need to play it, but just loves it and never miss a match. If she plays, she would be just as competitive as Oliver and if in an other house, the two would definitively be very competitive, making bets and trying to get the most amount of people on their side. After for example, she loses, Oliver would rub it in her face before complementing her. I think he would be very sweet and caring, unless she said she will beat him in the next game, then he will go defensive. They would be very cute and as I like to put a stamp on everything, GOALS.

anonymous asked:

OK, so that character flaws thing is really cool and helpful, so I'll ask a similar question: what do you think are some of the best character quirks in general? Just anything actually noteworthy as character development that isn't a good or bad trait per-say or too cliched? The way they dress, fidget, etc?

oh this makes me happy, i’m glad i could help

since you said character quirks, i’m going to assume you mean things characters do and not traits, which are a part of their personality (you can totally let me know if i misread or assumed wrong) 

i don’t have favorites, but here are some i don’t see often

involuntary twitching & erratic movements - sometimes my muscles just move and feel the need to move, something i can’t control. side note, sometimes happens because of too much caffeine or nervous energy

carrying small charms - whether they mean something or not, these characters carry the trinkets everywhere. 

phobias - especially uncommon ones, and the things people do to avoid them. my cousin’s boyfriends were scared of water but took him to this park and they had to cross a bridge. to get across it,,, they crawled on all fours. 

scars and extreme stories - that small mark on their wrist?? they got from holding a kitten wrong, of course they’re not going to tell people that. no,, they got that scar by skydiving. how?? well- [twenty minutes of exaggeration]

improbable dreams - like a character wanting to become a cat, of to replace their arm with a shark. just fun things.

no fear (just kidding) - fearless characters are cool too, but i especially love when something really mundane happens to be their biggest fear and they’ve been so careful about hiding it

averagely average - at everything they do, from school to arts & crafts.

really into collections - like,,, they might even have a problem. no, _ you don’t need more rocks/swords/buttons. stop, put that down

falls asleep anywhere - you might find them in the tree or in some odd position you’ve seen your cat in. 

wears a wig - i’ve not seen characters that struggle with premature hair loss and the struggle that comes with it (while i think that people should be proud regardless)

has personal traditions they never stray away from - like there’s this really good book they have to read every year, or every wednesday means hanging out in the tub with some candles or something.

mx. not perfect - they’ve always been seen as such, but they just,, don’t,, understand??? maybe, if they have siblings, they know them the best, but everyone else seems oblivious to their super obvious imperfections??

pep talks themselves - it doesn’t help everyone, but it helps them and that’s what counts

natural manipulator in a not-cruel way - how do they always wrangle their friends into taking naps when they need breaks? how do they always get their friends to eat?? we just don’t know

religious - i, personally, don’t have a religion, but i don’t mind seeing characters who are guided by their faith. 

always knows - about something specific, like what phase the moon happens to be in, or when it’ll rain next

thinks they’re a mythical creature - doesn’t matter if you think it’s silly or not real, they’re still going to believe.

i think that’s a good amount

maybe these will spark up some ideas?

thanks for sending in an ask

Do you guys think… since isak didn’t boil the water for the tea and served sana bad tea when she asked for tea, the other, figurative, tea is “bad” too? like maybe sana won’t go through with posting the screenshots the way isak didn’t go through with actually making the tea. it was only half assed tea. 

chuuyazai  asked:

Hello!! I just want to say that I love your blog like a lot!! I know I only started following you recently but I legit spent like 2 hours reading all/most of your stuff and you're amazing!!!! If it isn't too much to ask (and if your requests are open right now and you haven't done this already[i don't think you have but I could be wrong lol]) could I request head canons on how Kirishima, Todoroki, Bakugou, and Kaminari would react to an s/o who has really bad insomnia? Stay awesome love!!

Bless your soul Beautiful 💕 Thank you for your kind words, I’m so happy that you like what I’m doing! 💫 Btw, I LOVE your icon! Stay awesome as well Darling 😉

Here are your headcanons, I hope you like them 😃 I can relate to this ask on a personal level 🙈

Kirishima Eijirou

  • Before he and his s/o started dating, he never really realized that they had insomnia. It’s not like you go around, knocking at everyone’s door “Hey, I’m an insomniac, nice to meet you”. Most of the time, they concealed their lack of sleep well enough for everyone to not notice
  • He becomes partly concerned when his s/o still replies to his messages at 3 am in the morning. He is super sleepy, but it’s his s/o and he really likes them, so they keep messaging each other until he falls asleep. Everyone has trouble sleeping sometimes, so it wouldn’t happen every day anyway
  • When it happens again and again, Kirishima starts to be worried. How can they text him this late every day and still look so good every morning, he obviously has switched into zombie mode. It’s not like they are used to it, isn’t it?
  • Without beating around the bush, he asks his s/o what the deal with those late night messages is. S/o flushes him a smile and tells him that they are insomniac and it’s not a big deal for them to live with only so little sleep, but obviously he shouldn’t stick to their habit. “Oi babe, watcha sayin’ here? It’s super unhealthy and super unmanly if you end up destroying your body with this”
  • He makes it his goal to help his s/o getting back to a normal sleeping schedule. Suggests a lot of stuff, like dimming the light an hour before bed, reading before going to sleep, breathing techniques, no phone before bedtime etc. If his s/o tells them with a pouty face that they can’t sleep without their phone because they might miss him, he offers them to sleep together. Of course, if they still can’t go to bed early or have trouble falling asleep, he stays awake with them. What kind of boyfriend would he be to let his s/o suffer alone, even if it turns him into a zombie?

Todoroki Shouto

  • Todoroki knew that his s/o liked coffee, but when he eventually realized that they technically live off coffee, he can’t help but being genuinely concerned. Too much caffeine is not good for your body and he wants his s/o to be healthy and happy
  • However, he wouldn’t directly demand them to stop their coffee consumption, he would rather observe them a little to find the cause behind it. Getting down to the root of trouble and eliminate it at once is his goal. Besides, he doesn’t want to offend them with wrong conclusions
  • The moment his gears start to turn and all the little pieces are falling together, is when he realizes how much of habit napping together has become and how happy and refreshed his s/o looks afterwards.
  • Finally, he asks them if insomnia might be the cause of their enormous coffee consumption and points out how concerned he is. S/o tells them that they have trouble to maintain their sleep, means they often wake up in the middle of the night, unable to go back to sleep again.
  • Sleep deprivation is not a stranger to Todoroki, actually he has the same problem sometimes. Instead of coffee, he suggests them to drink a cup of green tea before they go to bed, in order to relax. He also tells them, whenever they wake up and can’t go back to sleep anymore, they should call him and they have a late night walk together

Bakugou Katsuki

  • The moment Bakugou notices bags under his s/o’s eyes and being all grumpy or he sees them inhaling their coffee instead of drinking, he asks them what’s wrong. Of course he can’t stop making one or two snarky remarks here and there
  • When s/o tells him, they have trouble sleeping lately, but didn’t want to bother him, he flicks their forehead and gives them a lecture about how important a healthy sleep schedule is
  • S/o gets a little salty because, well, it’s not like they chose it? Bakugou gets salty because s/o is salty and eventually they end up having a little fight
  • Bakugou has a little trouble to relate to the whole situation because he was never insomniac in his whole life. Sleep is important for him and after a day of being all riled up, he can’t help but being tired. Oh, it suddenly clicks in his head
  • Drags his s/o to work out with him, making sure to exhaust them
  • If s/o still has trouble to sleep, he might be bent on cuddling the shit out of them

Kaminari Denki

  • He is everything but quick to catch up on his s/o’s problem
  • However, he notices when bags start to appear underneath his s/o’s beautiful eyes and is low key irritated when they start being grumpy or making snarky remarks whenever he sweet talks them
  • Finally, when s/o tells them the third week in a row that they haven’t really slept or just had a few hours, he is like “Oh, that’s not really smooth, being insomniac is a problem” “You don’t say!”
  • Kaminari is actually ashamed that he didn’t get the hint earlier and tries to help them as much as possible. He does really detailed research on how to deal with insomnia (Google has to have an answer! Google knows everything!)
  • He tries everything he recommends to his s/o together with them. Sometimes this either ends in a total disaster or super funny moments. “Denki, I don’t think that watching a movie at 3:30am is a good method to relax your brain”, s/o says snuggled up against him, falling asleep in his arms. (In the end, he ends up being insomniac because of Netflix)

anonymous asked:

I've had a bad day, can I have Junkrat comforting reader head canons (female if possible) and it be really fluffy if it isn't too much trouble? I love your work btw!

  • we all know he’s very wild and lively, but as soon as he gets that you’re sad he will freeze and start to ponder 
  • will think of many things to cheer you up
  • brings you something to eat, shows you all his new explosives and cracks silly jokes
  • if that doesn’t work he gets very quiet, he doesn’t understand how explosives don’t make you happy
  • then he finally starts to listen to you, asking what’s wrong
  • you tell him your day was a mess and everything went wrong
  • he sits next to you, listening and nodding
  • asks you if you want some tea
  • if that doesn’t work he will wrap his arms around you, pulling you close
  • stroking your back and telling you it will be alright, everyone has a bad day now and then
  • gentle kisses all over your face until you start giggling
  • wrapping you in a blanket like a small sad burrito 
  • he will do anything to see you smile again
  • cuddling until the two of you fall asleep
little DM rant

Okay, now I really feel sorry for Depeche Mode. First the whole story with the presale tickets where people had to preorder ridiculous amounts of their new record to get better tickets, which made many people furious, and now their album has been leaked over a week before the official release date. And people are still moaning about Alan Wilder leaving 20 years ago, because Spirit doesn’t sound as good as the old stuff. Although many magazines and websites praised Spirit, which gave DM a good sort of advertisement and will probably boost their sales, this release and the tour aren’t managed too well imo (speaking about the north american tour rn).

I have not listened to the new album and will NOT until its official release date (or until my copy arrives at least), but I can say for sure that I won’t compare Spirit to Violator or SOFAD or any other record they have made before. Seems like people forget that bands can’t stay exactly the same forever. So if you don’t like the new stuff and have been moaning about it for years, excuse me, but why do you still listen to Depeche Mode? Why do you have the need to complain about them so much? I am happy that they are still around and I really hope that this whole pre-sale and leak faux pas won’t be as bad for them as I fear it is.

Sure, listening to the leak is exciting! But please, PLEASE still go and buy their record when it comes out. And don’t be too mad about the pre sale thing. I have no reason why you shouldn’t be, but we know they can do better and they care about their fans. This whole situation isn’t what they would have wanted. So please, if you care about them, support them. Thank you.

Book Alec isn't toxic or abusive

I think the people of the shadowhunter/the mortal instrument fandom need to seriously understand what a toxic relationship actually is and a toxic person. There is no doubt that Alec said some pretty bad things to magnus when they first got together and did some bad things. 

Did he learn from this? 


Did he regret it? 


Did he understand he was out of order? 


Did he mature up as he aged? 


I’ve seen toxic relationships play out and it’s going way too far saying he was toxic and I’ve seen some people even describe him as abusive. Some people may say ‘18 is old enough to not be rude and to not be insecure' 

Do you forget how young 18 is? I’ve dated somebody who was 18, had difficulty coming out of the closet and had it hard. And to begin with, they were a little like Alec but they learnt.  I would NEVER call them toxic or abusive. 18 isn’t old, you still make stupid decisions,  you’re still a teenager. Yea, some 18 year olds are mature, some are not. I certainly wasn’t mature at 18. A lot of shadowhunter fans seem to range between 15 and 18, and honestly,  you’re not old, you’re still kids really. (Not saying every fan is in this age range before somebody says 'well actually I am 24’) 

His character development is so beautiful.  Seriously,  if you still think Alec is a horrible, toxic and abusive piece of shit, go read born to an endless night. 

And for goodness sake, don’t make people feel guilty for liking Alec

And yea, I will stick up for the one couple I relate to so much.

anonymous asked:

Okay so I'm black myself so no offense and all, but isn't 'reversed racism' very bad too? I mean, it's literally just racism. I get that people do it to 'get back at white privileged people' and all, and I understand that but I don't think it's a good idea to fight hate w hate. It'll only make matters worse and create more racists. Shouldn't we rather just attack actual racists instead of the entire white race? It makes us just as bad as racists? And it gives us an even worse reputation?

Reverse Racism doesn’t exist, boo… so this entire paragraph became null and void after dat

Dear younger Zuka fans (even old ones if that’s necessary):
-Not being able to afford merch doesn’t make you any less of a fan.
-Not being able to go to Japan and watching a show live doesn’t make you any less of a fan.
-Not being into a fan club (for either personal or economical reasons) doesn’t make you any less than a fan.
-There’s no such a thing as ‘Being a True Fan’ and there’ll never be.
-Being a westerner doesn’t automatically make you bad/rude/not worthy of being a fan.
-Being a westerner fan doesn’t mean appeasing all the characteristics a person born in a completely different culture with different social influence like a Japanese fan have.
-Being a fan means enjoying, supporting, loving and most of all respecting all siennes and their incredible and amazing work.
