this just gets me so worked up

in which y/n stands harry up… again…

She tip toed through the door hoping by some grace of god that he wouldn’t be waiting up for her. She carefully peeked her head in each room before the rest of her body followed. It almost seemed as if she’d make it through the night unscathed, that is until she walked into their bedroom and saw him sitting on the bed, lower half tucked underneath the covers as he casually toyed around on his phone. 

He looked up as she entered the room cautiously, and she offered him a small, guilty smile to which he rolled his eyes. “Harry–” she began, but he quickly cut her off. 

“Don’t.”

She dropped her bags and scuttled over to the bed. “I’m sorry, H.”

“I said, ‘don’t’.”

“I know you’re mad, but please just let me explain.”

“Mad?” He chuckled manically. “I was mad the first three times you stood me up. I was mad for the first 45 minutes of sitting in that restaurant actually thinking you were going to show up this time. Now, I’m furious." 

She looked to him with sad eyes. "I tried calling you,” she muttered pitifully.

“Oh yeah thanks for letting me know you weren’t going to make it an hour after you were supposed to be there. Real considerate.” He stood up, rolling his eyes, seemingly too mad to stay seated any longer. 

She was a bit annoyed. It had been a long and trying day. She had every intention of meeting him for dinner, but corporate came down and she was more or less forced into working over time. She couldn’t bail, not when her team and her boss were counting on her, not when her job could possibly be on the line. “I couldn’t get to my phone, Harry. The big bosses came down. I really wanted to be there, but I couldn’t just leave. I’m sorry.”

“These days it just seems like it’s always something with you. You’re leaving early, getting home late, missing every date we set. Is there something you’d like to tell me?”

She narrowed her eyes at him. “I don’t like what you’re insinuating.”

He exhaled heavily. “Well, I don’t know what I’m supposed to think! We never talk anymore!”

"I’m trying to talk to you now, Harry, but you’re refusing to listen!”

He took a few deep breaths before sitting down. “Go on, then.”

She was a bit taken aback by his allowance. She just stood in front of him, blinking, as he waited for her to begin. Her mouth opened and closed a few times before her face twisted into a scowl. “You’re not my principal, and I’m not in trouble. I don’t have to explain myself to you.”

“Actually, I think that’s the least you can do.”

She crossed her arms and furrowed her eyebrows, leaning forward slightly in frustration. “Okay let’s not pretend that you’ve never been on this side of the situation, Mr. Rockstar. I never got this upset with you, though. So, why do you think you have the right to criticise me for any of this?”

He was about to respond, but instead he opted for running his hands down his face, finally calming down. “I’m not…” he paused trying to collect his thoughts. “I’m not trying to criticise you, and I’m sorry for blowing up on you, but I’m frustrated, love.”

“And you think I’m not? Harry, I hate this. I’m exhausted and stressed out all the time. We are the one thing that’s supposed to be easy.”

He nodded his head in agreement a few times, then motioned for her to move forward and into his lap. He nuzzled his face into the crook of her neck, breathing in her scent. It was the closest she felt to him in a solid month. “I just want to get back to us. But, I can feel you slipping through my fingers.”

She interlocked their hands. “I’m not going anywhere, H. At the end of the day, I’m always going to be right here. But, my job is super important to me. I like what I’m doing. I’m happy with the way things are right now, so it’d be nice if you could be a little more understanding.”

His face was the one that twisted up this time. “Babe… I have been understanding. I wasn’t even upset the first couple times, but this is becoming a habit. I think I have the right to be a little mad, at this point.”

She sighed heavily, getting up from his lap. “Well, I don’t know what you want me to say. I have to be available for my job. It’s not like I’m intentionally skipping out on you.”

He pulled his knees up to his chest. They were both attempting not to get worked up again. Neither of them enjoyed screaming matches like the one they had a few minutes ago. “So, your job is more important than me now?”

She shot him a slight look of disgust. “Okay, don’t do that. Because honestly? I’ve spent the last couple of years working around your schedule. I made myself available whenever you were. I had to deal with the missed dates and the not being back when you said and the leaving early in the morning and the getting stopped when we’re out because of fans and the constant invasion of privacy. Don’t forget that. I admit there were times when I was upset, more than upset, but I never held it against you. Why can’t you extend me the same courtesy?” She had been pacing the room as she recalled all the struggles she had to face simply because he  was who he was. 

“It’s Not. Just. About. That.”

She let out a small shrill, running her hands through her hair, as she spun on her heels facing him directly. “Then what is it! Please explain it to me!”

“It’s that I don’t feel like you love me anymore!” He closed the distance between them, but still had his voice raised in a way that sent chills down her spine and not in a good way. “I don’t feel like you need me, and that’s terrifying for me because most days I don’t think love is a strong enough word to describe how I feel for you! I know you have to deal with a bunch of BS being with me, but have I ever made you feel like I don’t want you?”

Her face paled considerably and she stood before him completely shell shocked. “No,” she choked out.

“Well, that’s how I feel,” he said, lowering his voice to a normal decibel, relieved that he finally got his point across. “It’s like when I see you, if I see you, walking around you look like the girl I fell in love with, but your mind and heart have already moved on.” He pushed away a few tears that tipped out of his eyes. “And you know you never really apologise for this kind of thing. You’re just like 'I got caught up at work’ or summat and you expect me to get over it.”

She immediately rolled up on her toes, wrapped her arms around his neck, and whispered “I’m sorry,” into his ear until both of their heart rates stopped beating so rapidly. Then, she cupped his face in her hands and kissed him nice and slow attempting to relay all the feelings she had for him that she’d been keeping trapped inside. “I love you so much. So so so much. I’m sorry I haven’t been doing a great job at showing it or telling you.”

He leaned into her touch and wrapped his arms around her waist, snuggling her as tight as possible, while nodding his head. “I know you don’t need as much verbal and physical confirmation as me, but please humour me, yeah?”

“Of course. I’ve just been so caught up in this project that I’ve been neglecting you, and I’m sorry, genuinely. But, can you do something for me, as well?”

He raised his eyebrows at her.

“Pull me aside and tell me if I’m being a knob, okay? Talk to me. I’m pretty evolved as a human being, but I haven’t quite developed telepathy, yet. Deal?”

He chuckled, sealing their lips together once more. “Deal.”

hi omg I've been following you for quite some time and you're such a nice person and I just need validation from someone I admire. I've been studying a lot but it just comes up to nothing and I just feel so frustrated and my parents believe in me, that I can go to a good university but I don't think I can and I just don't want to disappoint them but I don't think I can do this any longer. I just feel like ending everything sometimes. sorry if this is depressing you can ignore this if you want

I know it’s hard and it seems like it won’t let up.

The pressure, the work, the stress..At those times…Just stop.

Take a deep breath.

Look at little steps into the future instead of the whole and in the future…whatever happens..happens..Things tend to work themselves out. It’s hard to read this and believe it…until it happens to you.

Don’t be afraid of failure. It is also a stepping stone. I have been on this stepping stone so many times. Sometimes…I’m glad I did fail, since it brought me to even greater opportunities, people and places.

Either way, you’ll get through it.

You can get through it.

When you do, you’ll be so proud of yourself, trust me.

Right now, when it seems like the hardest, you are building your character.

You are forming you.

You’re becoming a stronger person and I am so damn proud of you.

How did you improve your eczema?

Plenty of drinking (tea, water), adjusting the sweet stuff to decent amount per day and building immune system worked out best for me . For immunity I started drinking goat milk instead of cowsmilk. It’s much healthier and less risky (though smelly and the taste you gotta get used to), the risk of lactose intolerance is near zero with it (cats, babies, whoever can drink this safely). Goat bodies are able to process a lot of eaten things and the effects of their food is strengthened in their milk. I switched to it during a very difficult time and though it took a few months, the effects and improvement was HUGE. I advice not giving up on cowmilk fully though, because your body won’t be able to process lactose after a while… Milk is in lot of foods and products - you can’t really run away from it completely. So it’s best to drink goatmilk instead of cowmilk, but still consume cowmilk, processed in other foods or in coffee etc. In small doses, so you won’t have stomachpains after drinking/eating cowmilk products after a long pause. A lot of people say it gets better with age or more stable hormones - so that can play a role too! So basically… (, less cowmilk/white sugar/stress and more balance in diet (some foodsinning allowed without worry) and drinking/vitamins and immunesystem building can help immensely! Hope it gets better for you if you’re battling the illness!

We were at the bank getting ready for Pagan Pride Day and there’s a long line. I decide to sit down and knit while my girlfriend gets her banking done. I’m not really sure what I’m trying to knit, but at the moment it’s kind of like a sleeve. Really, I’m just trying to get a handle on it since I don’t do this much. But that’s beside the point. 

So I’m working on my sleeve/bag/armsock and this little kid like maybe six years old comes up to me, pokes me in the arm and says:

“Hey I like that. What is it?”

“Well, it’s like a sock.”

“Cool! Can I touch it?”

“Uh… sure?”

He sticks his arm straight through it. “Wow! It Works! Can I show you some words that start with V?”

“Uhhh….” Okay, so the entire lobby is looking at us. I’m trying to find this kid’s mom like… is this okay? Are you okay with this kid talking to strangers? But since everyone is waiting to see how I respond to this, I have not fucking clue which one of these adults belongs to this very small human. “Ummm… sure.”

“Valentine, valley, vanilla, and village!”

“Very good!”

“Can I show you some words that start with W?”

“Um… yeah.”

“Walrus, waffle, and walk!”

“Cool! Can you do X?”

“Xylophone…. uhhh.. Y NOW! Yellow, yard, yarn, and yawn!”

“Good job!”

“Can I show you some words that start with Z?”

I am really looking around to see if there’s an adult that’s in charge of this tiny human and that they didn’t just drop them off with a stranger for unknown reasons. The kid finishes Z, jumps back up to K, and starts again from there. Gets stopped at M and starts singing a song about a coconut tree. 

The mom finally calls him over and he leaves, but attracting small, precocious children is a sure sign of being a wizard so I guess that’s cool?

Gym observations

So I don’t think I’m a noob anymore.  Not sure that 9 months of consistent gym-going and “Gainz” qualify me as a veteran, but I don’t think I’m a rookie at this point.  So I thought I’d just post some of my observations to this point.  Maybe this will help new fitblrs, or even those who may not be noobs, but are still struggling.

So here goes:

1.  NOBODY cares what you are doing.  I see a lot of concerns and questions about what other people at the gym will think of your form, your weights, your consistency, or your intensity and I’ve come to the conclusion that everybody else just ignores the people around them.  We’re all so busy.  With few exceptions, people don’t spend hours and hours in the gym.  We have lives, we have things to do.  Most people want to get in, get sweaty, and get gone.  So if you’re worried about looking like a rookie, don’t sweat it.  Look like a rookie.  Everybody was a beginner at some point in their journey.

2.  Wipe the equipment and re-rack the weights.  Enough said.

3.  Guys …. don’t be that dude.  Don’t stare.  Yes she looks good, yes she’s wearing tight clothes or whatever.  But see point #1.  She’s there to work out.  So should you be.

4.  You don’t need much to get started.  I know that Planet Fitness sometimes gets some bad reviews from hard core lifters or bodybuilders, but for the most part you can get really fit and make some good progress there.  I have the Black Card and that lets me use any PF, anywhere in the country.  Considering how much I’m away from home, it is incredibly convenient to be able to pop in at a location in nearly any city I’m visiting.  So don’t be afraid of joining a “starter gym” when you’re a beginner, then moving on to something a bit more specialized (be it a hardcore lifting gym, a CrossFit box, a SoulCycle, or whatever) once you’ve built a base level of fitness.

5.  Have fun.  Do whatever it is that you enjoy.  I hate elliptical trainers.  With a passion.  So I never do them.  My wife loves them (but then, she’s weird).  I can take the treadmill from time-to-time, but I don’t love them.  I mostly go to the gym to lift and get my cardio by running outside or riding my bike or playing tennis.  But do what works for you.

6.  It’s ok to take a day off.  Or several days.  Or a week.  Just keep at it.  Slowly things will pick up and you’ll get in the habit and make progress.

7.  Find a diet/nutrition plan that works for you.  I do a mild form of the keto diet.  It’s worked for me so far.  But if you’re vegetarian, vegan, low fat, or whatever …. find what works for you and (this is important) …. do the best you can.  It’s ok to “slip up”, just keep at it.  Little by little changes come.

8.  Most of all, enjoy the journey.

I cannot even believe this sneak peek reel. I’ve been dancing since yesterday and singing in the rain since watching the whole thing this morning. Annoyingly I didn’t get to finish tapping out my thoughts before I had to leave for work (I’m at work right now) (shhhhh) But it’ll be up tonight and until then just WOW.

Also, that Dabb quote I reblogged yesterday - that was me mistaking it for a Dabb quote (I’ve put the correct name on there) it was a quote by the remarkable Brad Buckner. Aw yiss. Mr. “There are people, feelings, I want to experience differently. I don’t know, maybe even for the first time” Buckner. Who is calling Cas’ re-emergence the huge piece that, of course, turns Dean back around again. Brings him out of this grief state. Back into focus. Of course, we don’t know precisely what that means. *glances to the ceiling* It could just mean that Cas comes back a Big Bad and takes off with Jack. *small smile* Because having to hunt down and kill Cas would surely be enough to… okay no I can’t even finish that sentence omfg.

Balls out. Slow build, but balls out this season. Dicks in our faces, people.

I try not to vent (well a few select coworkers and I do no matter what lol) and basically I’m trying to kill my supervisor with kindness. And she brought it up in supervision like “idk what’s different, but you’ve just been in such a good space and you’re super willing to get feedback from me and you just seem really happy, so that’s awesome” and really I just wanna tell her “well, I realized that you aren’t worth me being pissed off all the time, so I’m just trying to ignore everything stupid you do”…..but I just smile and nod. Lol.

Harry’s told me a couple of times that I can use his office room if I want to, but I never see the point of going in there to work because I’m one of those people who prefer to not take their work back home. I prefer to get things done at my office so when I get home, I can relax, drink wine and catch up on my favourite tv shows.

Hi guys! I wanted to be productive after getting home from work but I was too tired so instead of tweaking this thing forever I decided to finally upload that fanfic I mentioned a while ago. And this was after an anon brought up making a fanfic version of SwapOut (I did start on it but it’s really slow |’D)

Enjoy I guess?? I got tired of editing it >A>;; and im still getting used to ao3 let me know if i should just upload the whole thing here

this fanfic is not related to SwapOut but after having the previous page prepare for more tears

Hey I have this guy who keeps cornering me and trying to get me into conversation about how good my clothes look and patting me and stuff when I've told him not too, (may not sound bad but Theres something about him, y'know) so can I get some defensive Dark to just clear my head of him, thanks man

(That sounds really dangerous friend! If this is in a public place, like school, or your work, please, please let someone know so this guy can get punted off the premises!)

If you said no the first time, then you meant no. That’s all Dark needed. He’d been picking up on your levels of distress when seeing you lately. Curious to the source he’d followed you from the shadows. Seeing the man begin to move on you Dark acted. 

The man stopped, his face contorting in pain. He looked down at his hands. Seeing blood he stumbled back. Blood seeped through his clothes. Frantically the man scrambled to remove his clothes to find the source.

While the man hallucinated Dark would wrap an arm around your shoulders and lead you away.

anonymous asked:

I know that i'm supposed to stand up to people who make racist/lgbtphobic/ableist/etc comments and i want to but i can't argue with someone without having a meltdown, because i'm so b&w thinking that i get so worked up that "You're wrong!!" that i just end up melting down. Is it still wrong for me to not say anything about these comments? What do i do about this? I want to shut these people down but idk how

While calling out racist/ableist/sexist/etc. comments is an important aspect of social justice, there is nothing wrong with not doing so if you are not able to. There are many reasons that a person may not be able to call out these kinds of comments. For instance, I hear things in my workplace a lot that I’m not able to say anything about without risking my job. There are times when it may not be safe to call someone out for a variety of reasons whether due to threat of physical violence, potential loss of livelihood, etc. 

Many autistic people struggle with confrontation. Personally, I have a tendency to cry when in a confrontation or get overwhelmingly angry. It’s something I’m working on and I’m trying to get better at handling confrontation, but I still have a long way to go. That means that, for now, I’m not in a position to be calling out bigoted things. I’m not prepared for the confrontation that may follow. This is directly tied to autistic traits for me as it seems to be for you. There is no shame in acknowledging our limitations. 

Since it seems like you genuinely care about social justice, I would suggest trying to find other ways that you can fight bigotry. Maybe you can’t call out people when they make bigoted statements, but perhaps you can share things on social media that address bigotry. While many laugh at this form of activism, online activism has huge potential to change people’s minds and help people become more invested in social justice. Maybe you can volunteer with a local social justice organization in a capacity that utilizes your skills. There are so many ways you can help advance social justice without directly calling out every bigoted thing you encounter.

what other websites are you using as part of your tumblr hiatus/disappearings/whatever you want to call it? bc lord knows I could use more sites to go to off this hellhole besides AO3, youtube, and news websites.

pokefarm Q is more of a timewaster but theres a lot of forums too! (i havent dug around in them much yet but th site is moderated + there seems to be a real good amount of queer folks there so im assuming its alright!) (also th site looks real bad before u sign up but Just Bear With Me its A Good w/ Lots Of Content once u get into it) (ALSO th Entire site is child friendly so good for repulsed folks like me!)

im also spendin a good amount of time on furaffinity which is maybe not th most NonToxic place but th block button works + it has Some degree of moderation (+ Lord Theres A Lot Of Queer Folks Its Real Nice) (ALSO its so good for art inspiration + also commissions its. very diverse + i honestly Lov It) (ALSO ALSO theres a mandatory maturity rating for each piece of art + usually folks sort it correctly so u can only see SFW things if u want!!) (THO as an extension a warning to m fellow s/ex repulsed peeps it can get. Bad in that sense so jst Be Prepared if u go lookin)

Why can’t people just tell me what they want?

I had a lady come through today that held up my line trying to get the cigarettes she wanted. When she first came up, she asked which ones were the cheapest. I don’t buy cigarettes and don’t work close enough to the cabinet to know, so I told her I wasn’t sure. My bagger went to look, told her the cheapest pack we had. She went with the second cheapest, Pall Mall reds. My bagger goes and gets her a pack of those. When he comes back, she sends him back up to get 4 more packs. As I’m starting to scan them, she asks if they’re the 100s. She hadn’t asked for 100s, so no, they’re not. I void off the ones I’ve scanned, and my bagger goes to get the 100s. She pays, and I think we’re done. Nope. Now she wants 5 packs of cigars. At least she knew what she wanted in those, but even my manager was like, why didn’t she tell you that before?

Work rec meme

About a week ago I was tagged by the lovely @justkeeponthegrass – I’m so sorry it’s taken me so long to respond!  I work in a really weird freelance field where sometimes I get work every day and every evening for a week and then suddenly a random day or half-day off. Today I don’t need to go out for work till 3pm, and I have the evening off as well, it’s just that short afternoon job, hurrah!  So I’m trying to catch up on emails, tumblr, etc…

The tag was for a “rec your own fic” meme.  It doesn’t seem to have any official intro so I’m just burbling.  It seems the rules are “rec five of your own stories and then tag some people.”  I don’t think I can tag anyone after such a long delay though.  But here is a bit of boasting; because the mere fact that I am trained to think of it as boasting tells me I may have a wee bit of a problem with the concept of being proud of my own work…

1.  Poetry of the First and Second Republics, Vol 3: The War Poets (extract)

This was an experiment, based on my headcanon that Cassian Andor wrote poetry.  It’s probably one of the short stories I’m most proud of, as it was a challenge to say anything in the two paragraphs I allowed myself before the actual poetry starts.  Penguin Books used to issue a long-running series on contemporary poets and I was imagining something equivalent to that.  Canon compliant and written in an attempt at academic prose, plus some poems in the short lyrical style I imagine Cassian writing…

2.  In a dark time, the eye begins to see…

My magnum opus, and one of the few things I feel pretty much unashamed of saying I am proud of.  This was meant to be a short piece, two to three chapters and mostly PWP; but it grew like Topsy, acquired a plot and a classic three-act structure, and even an OC people liked (yay!), and ended up at over 100,00 words.  It’s a slightly weird kind of AU, in so far as that we are in the SWU and we still have elements of the basic plot of Rogue One; so there is a Death Star and people are trying to get hold of the plans.  But everyone is in totally different places and with some pretty different affiliations at the beginning, and things go down quite differently as a result.

3.  Conversations with the best man

Another experiment, stylistically-speaking; could I write a short story entirely in dialogue, and could I write something humorous?  Definitely not canon compliant; this is set a fix-it AU in which everyone lives and Jyn and Cassian are getting married, and K-2SO is Cassian’s best man…

4.  Running

My Bodhi-lives! story, and one of the first things I wrote for this fandom.  I was trying to imagine a life for Bodhi if he had been the sole survivor of Rogue One – how he would deal with the trauma, how he would build a new life, and what his future might have been.  Goes right through to the period of TFA.

5.  Simple luxuries

A one-shot I’m very fond of; it’s gently humorous and kind, and although the surface of the story is just a little incident of Jyn getting a meal for her friends, it has two interesting (to me) subtexts; of the Alliance as a working system, with a lot of unsung behind-the-scenes figures like a catering team who take pride in their work; and of Jyn beginning to learn how to come out of her shell and reach out to others, something I imagine would have been quite a challenge for her.  I think it’s one of the happiest of my fix-its as there’s almost no angst.  It was also lovely to imagine our heroes getting to eat some good fresh food!

Thank you for tagging me!

concept: talon!Lucio. They need a doctor, but they're not the best at figuring out what exactly they need. Aka Lucio but with heavy metal music

Honestly Lúcio is… really really difficult to imagine as an antagonist while still being Lúcio… he’s just… friendly frog rollerskate music guy. There’s so much positivity there. 

The first place my mind went to was CyberGoth!Lúcio.

*Lucio is stitching up Akande with his music playing in the background*

Akande: Must you have that on?

Lúcio: It helps me work.

Akande: Most people find screaming counterintuitive.

Lúcio: Well when you’re the medic, you get to pick the music.

Update

((Sorry all I’ve been super MIA lately. I started new hours and I have a ton of things I’m working on at this time and so this is my schedule until December:


Monday-Thursday + Saturday: Wake up, gym, write book, work 12pm-9pm, study Japanese, bed.

Friday: Book edits, gym, errands, study Japanese

Sunday: Book writing and edits, meal prep, book club, study Japanese


I want to try and get some time for replies in here but right now my focus is my novel and getting it beta read. Please don’t be upset! I want to come back so please wait for me! T_T


I just end up so exhausted so I really can’t do much more! I want to pass the JLPT N2 in December and after that things should calm a little!


Thank you for your patience!))

This happens all the time on tumblr because this site is full of miserable people but it’s always… so weird and uncomfortable when someone just randomly selects a post you made about yourself and gets REALLY worked up at you because they’ve decided that based on one (1) tumblr post you represent everything making them unhappy, especially the things they hate about themselves.

Like… look I understand depression and anxiety and all of that but I literally do not know you!

Anyway this has happened to me a bunch on this hellsite and it’s always disorienting and upsetting when it happens to me, but VERY obvious to me when I’m watching it happen to someone else. 

I was tagged in (no joke) 12 more of these ten unique questions tag games, so I have to cut it down again. @tcstu‘s questions were pretty wild, so I’ll be answering them, at least.

1) If you could choose another way for human beings to relax and re-charge besides sleeping, what would it be?

Writing. Just let me write all night and then get up feeling refreshed enough to go to work please.

2) If you could invent a new body part, what would it be and why?

A brand new body part, or a new body part for humans? Because I would love to have a prehensile tail to help me out with chores and climbing. 

3) Have you ever written a story based on a dream?

Ahahahahaha, nope. My dreams are crazy, and anything based on them would end up being some weird physiological horror dream sequence. 

4) Which character, either yours or someone else’s would make the worse roommate?

Kian (the antagonist in Pearl) is a shitty person and would make an awful roommate. I would much rather deal with her then Ludolf (the antagonist’s minor minion in TWLC) though… he’s a pervert and a creep. 

5) What was the first book you fell in love with?

The first Pony Pals book, probably. (Though really, I don’t think I was quite in love with a book until Percy Jackson. I’m not sure I’ve been quite in love with a book since Percy Jackson either… I read it during that perfect point when I was old enough to be critical of books and could see how amazing it was, but I wasn’t yet the cynical old fart I am now.)

6) How did you come up with the idea for your current WIP(s)?

TWLC: I wanted something with the feel of the Water Tribe from Legend of Korra, and threw in something like the harmonic convergence.

Pearl: No clue. I was just making up a silly story in my head. I rather love the idea of merpeople in bathtubs so.

WaWaM: I had the main character in my head already as a monster hunter, and wanted a world where humans lived around volcanoes are used the volcano’s power in their technology, so I shoved them together and things spiraled from there.

7) What cancelled TV show or book series would you like to bring back?

I can’t think of one specifically, but there’s been plenty of shows which had to wrap up suddenly (like BBC’s Merlin) which I would have liked to see go on for longer.

On the other hand, there are lots of book series which I wish had ended when they were still good, dammit. 

8) Which fantasy world would you want to live in forever?

Actually sci fi, but I would love to live in the world from The Long Way to a Small Angry Planet. So many cool places to explore and wild alien cultures.

9) If you could design your own planet, with no limitations of our current reality, what would it be like?

Oh man, I have no idea. Or really, too many ideas. So… I’d probably design one where the design would change according to my whims? Ultimate Bryn paradise. I know that’s cheating but you said no limitations. 

10) What WIP have you worked on the longest?

Longest was Archways, which I worked on for over five years, but I never actually finished a first draft of that… On the other hand I have TWLC which is 150k words on its fifth draft and I’ve been working on it for 16 months now.

Umm excuse me? Do you NOT constantly get praise over your fanfic? Dude! Your writing is amazing! Like it literally has not gone down in quality (just saying that cause alot of long fics do). Like I swear to you I don't even really ship tododeku all that much, but your damn fic makes me a believer. I'm more of a bakushima guy, and the fact that you have that ship in your stories and are contemplating writing more about them gives me life, Keep up the amazing work! Looking forward to reading more!

Ahh too nice! Thank you!! Jeez I’m so embarrassed when people are so sweet!

so i’m going to just kind of be on semi-hiatus until october because the end of this month is really hard for me. i’ll be working on little random things here and there if muse hits, and probably some aesthetics maybe but that’s about it. also, starting october i will be watching my little cousin regularly in the evening so my schedule is gonna be wonky. i’m hoping to be able to get on a little while i’m over there, and much later in the evening i’ll be on as well. i may need to drop some drafts though and focus on plotted things and stuff like that, but i’ll decide for sure once i actually start and kind of figure out my schedule properly !!
