live on the 13th floor, and there’s this family that lives on the floor
above me, really unpleasant people. Father’s a fat priest (this is an
orthodox christian country, priests are decked out. BMWs or Mercedes
cars, tinted glass, typically lots of cash…), no idea what the mum
does, but she’s a very unpleasant person to meet, won’t even respond to a
neighbourly hello, just keeps a scowl on her face 24/7. They have
several children, all boys, the oldest being around 16, they all seem to
be raised according to their parents’ assholeness. I can’t speak for
the two little twins though, since they don’t really know what they’re
doing is aiding their parents’ ultimate goal of being the biggest dick
I was finishing up an assignment and was running just a little bit
late for school. I go out, call the elevator which says it’s on the 14th
floor, one floor above that is. It doesn’t move. I take my earbuds out
and hear little children’s voices- immediately I realize the situation.
The mum’s not yet out of the flat, but she’s sent her two little kids
out in advance to call the lift up and keep it there, god forbid she
wait a second upon exiting her apartment! You may think I was jumping to
a conclusion, but all the noises pointed to it and this wouldn’t be the
first time it happened.
This aggression will not stand.
Now, a thought crossed my mind that I should walk up the stairs, toss
the kids aside, say “Sorry, running late!” enter the lift, close the
door and leave. I was even prepared to argue with the missus if I were
to come across her too. I don’t shy away from conflict.
They’ve pushed my buttons for far too long. It’s time I push some buttons myself.
Alright, you goddamn bloody walrus, is that how it’s gonna be? You
apparently don’t mind making people wait when they’re already late, you
can do some waiting of your own, you scowling, hag.
Despite risking being even more late, I took the stairs down. However
I made sure I pressed the elevator button on every single floor on the
way down, make them wait approximately 15 seconds on every single floor
when the manatee manages to get out of the flat eventually.
I already answered this question, but my tips were pretty short so for the 20k I decided to take the time to write all the tips that I learned. So I hope that I will help the new ask blogs!
If you don’t know me, hello I’m Sarah and I started this blog in June/July 2016 when there were only 3 ask blogs and the other 3 were inactive, yep. It’s been now 8 months than I run this blog so hopefully this will help you! (ofc my tips are good for not only bts ask blogs!).
Also it’s just tips and things that I noticed so you don’t have to follow everything!
Warning: very long
1. Chara Design
*Chara design is really important, it’s the first thing that people will see. Since tumblr users scroll down really fast, they need to recognize the member really quickly. So before starting your blog I think you should take your time to sit down and to create the chara design. Try different things and see what is the best for you! A quick way to do it is to mix their personalities with their real life features! But don’t worry, you will surely change your design after a couple of months, but it’s a great beginning to have a design in mind!
*Color palette is also really important. I don’t like to whitewash but do what you want. If you don’t like to whitewash like me I think that this VLIVE really shows their beautiful skins♥. But again you will change it for sure later, I often change my color palette tbh. It won’t be perfect, and it can’t be perfect so don’t be too pressured by this!
2. AUs (Alternate universe, other professions, ships & OCs)
1. Alternate universe
My ask blog isn’t an AU so I don’t know everything about this. But I’ll try my best to give you all my advices.
I think that AUs are really funny and really great (for ex witch au etc). And a good way to create one is to ask yourself some really simple questions who will help you to develop this universe and to keep it consistent. For example: Where are they? Do they like were they live? The mood of the place? Specificities of the place/universe? Do this place affect their appareance? In which way? Do they have the same age? How the universe interacts with them? etc….
2. Other professions
It’s basically the same than 1. but with different questions: Where do they work? With who? Do they work a lot? How are the customers? Do they like their job? How involved are they in this job? Are they good at it? Someone ocasionally helps them? etc…
Ships are part of the AU because in your universe, the ship is canon (which is not the case irl). It’s also the same than 1. and 2.: How is the relationship? Do they have habits? (things they do often etc..), How the members interact with the ship? Things they love about each other? Things they hate? Where do they live? etc…
I only saw a few ask blogs including OCs but they exist so I have to talk about them eheh. (oc x member, doesn’t me it’s a romantic relationship tho)
If you want to create this type of blog, be ready because it’s going to be really difficult. The thing with Ocs is that it will take time to your followers to like your OCs because they don’t know them. You should introduce the OC in your first post: How do they know each other? (member and the oc), Age? Type of relationship? Interactions with the other members? Do they know the other members? Reasons why the member likes your OC etc…
*obviously you don’t have to answer to all the questions!^^^^
3. The start of your blog & tips
1.Make an introduction!
It’s basically just a post saying “hello i exist plz send me asks ty”. You can maybe tag other art blogs to bring some of their followers on your blog so you can starts somewhere! If it’s an AU, introduce it a lil bit. Don’t be too pressured by this post. You will hate it later trust me, just draw something cute, introduce the theme of your blog and that’s all!
2. Don’t answer directly to the ask
By that I mean don’t answer in this lil box (?) here
And here’s why:
The quality is better when you upload your drawings in the picture post (idk how it’s called??), plus it takes more time to load (at least for me?)
But the major reason is because of this:
When someone reblogs an ask, it will cut/hide the pictures a bit. Which is really not good. If you write some texts it might be hided because of this, and the tumblr user will have to click on it to read everything. But the majority won’t click on it. I did this myself, and I’m glad that an anon told me about this!
So what I do now is that I took a screenshot of the ask, I save it and upload it in the picture post (still don’t know how it’s called ugh).
3. MAKE IT CLEAR!!
Clarity is key guys! I see a lot of beautiful artworks who aren’t clear, so we don’t understand what’s going on! :^((. Tumblr users scroll down really fast, if they don’t understand something or if they have to take the time to understand it, they will keep scrolling.
So don’t explain all the story in one or two pics (or maybe it’s just really short but wtv). There will have a lot of informations in one pic and it’s not good at all :^((
Don’t be afraid to SHOW things. Show what’s going on. Yoongi is watching Jhope’s body roll for 5 minutes on Youtube? In an other picture, zoom on his laptop to make it clear: “yes Yoongi is a J-Hope trash, look at his laptop”. That’s why my comics are 6-9 pictures long. I make sure that everything is understandable.
4. I don’t get attention, why? :^(
OK this is a really complicated topic, but I get this question pretty often. I won’t talk about the lack of reblogs or anything like that.
In this section I will talk about things ask blogs don’t talk, so here we go.
For some reason,people reaaaally don’t talk about this topic in the drawing or writing community (in the kpop fandom). But ayy let’s talk about this: Depending on the member, you will get more or less notes. That’s sad but true. The maknae line is more popular and the hyung line is less popular. So if you choose to create a blog centered on only one member and he’s not really popular, you will get less notes. Be aware of that.
Same for ships. Some ships are more popular! And some are less popular.
(for this one please don’t be offended ;<;)
After working on this blog for a while, I realized something. Maybe you noticed it, but I don’t answer questions like “what’s your fav color”, “do you like this instrument?, “do you like that?” etc… It’s because…it’s not the most interesting questions in the world. Let’s say you answer and say “blue”. Well yea, the drawing can be amazing, but the content isn’t really interesting. It’s blue, well ok. So if you only answer this kind of asks, there’s chances that people might not be really interested.
Again, I’m not here to tell you how to run your blog! If you like to answer to this, keep going bro!
An other thing that I noticed. Comics are always prefered to illustrations. Because it’s a story. The illustration can be amazing, but it’s an illustration. People really enjoy comics because it’s a story and it can be funny, and angsty or idk. My asks are stories. It’s not a direct answer, it’s a story that answer to the question. But again, if you don’t like to make comics, don’t do it :^DDD It’s just something that I realized!
SO I FINALY FINISHED IT!!! It was long and it took me so much time omg. I hope this will help you♥♥
BTS reaction: you having a habit of biting your lips, making them bleed
Thank you for requesting, and sorry that it took me this long! xx
He’d scold you so much omg. He’d try to make you stop whenever he saw you biting your lip, in hopes that he could help you break your habit. Jin does not approve.
He wouldn’t worry too much, I don’t think. Like, everyone bites their lips. So he wouldn’t mind, until you start bleeding. He’ll then scold you while wiping the blood away. So, like, he wouldn’t care up until the very moment he sees blood. Every single time. Boy does not learn that it ends up in blood most of the time.
He’d be like Yoongi at first, but he will eventually learn that you’ll pretty much always end up bleeding. And then he’ll turn into Jin, and scold you and tell you to stop every time he catches you biting your lips, even if they aren’t bleeding yet.
Rap Monster/Kim Namjoon:
He would just do some research on the best ways to break habits, and then go from there. He’d scold you in the beginning, but once he notices that that doesn’t work, he’ll try to find other ways to make you stop. Because a habit that makes you bleed is a bad habit.
He’d be worried, but wouldn’t do much about it. He wouldn’t know how to approach the subject, and would figure that it can’t be as bad as it seems if you keep on doing it. He’d still try to subtly stop you though. And he’d sit you down to talk about it if he thought it went too far.
Well, given how much he licks his lips, they would probably be falling apart if he didn’t use lip balm. So I feel like if there’s one member who would just leave you be, it’d be him. He definitely wouldn’t want to kiss you if there’s blood all over your lips though.
He would be the one to hide how worried he is. Like, he’d want to be like Jin, but he’d end up like Jimin. But, I do think he’d tease you a bit in an attempt to make you stop, by saying how he won’t kiss you if your lips are all chapped up from how much you bit them.
Pentagon reaction to you wanting morning sex
A/n: this was kinda hard because I feel like a lot of them are similar when it comes to morning sex lol also I’m sorry this took so long
•Yuto: he is a dom in my eyes but I feel like he would be very soft and loving in the morning with you. He would make sure to hit all your sweet spots and take his time on everything
•Edawn: sex was so common in your relationship that he was 100% down for morning sex. He would definitely go softer in the morning with you wanting to be more “romantic”
•Yanan: this cutie omg. His heart would flutter when you asked him. He would be so excited on the inside to get touchy with you in the morning. He would most likely top. Expect very playful sex
•Shinwon: this cutie also omg. Similar to yanan his heart would flutter and he would have a big goofy smile on his face when you asked him (but then it would turn into a devilish smirk and things will get hot and kinky real fast)
•Wooseok: (he’s probably so soft and cuddly in the morning omg I’m screaming) he would have to be in the mood for morning sex because I feel like he just wants to cuddle you in the morning but if he was in the mood then expect really cute, playful, loving sex
•Yeo one: I feel like he would be alllll about pleasing his partner. He would normally be the one initiating sex so when you asked it would take him by surprise but he would totally be down.
•Jinho: this boyyyy. He would love pleasuring you. It made him feel more confident when you were under him whining and moaning. He would 100% be down for morning sex. You guys would probably go multiple rounds
•Hongseok: wow ok. Lowwwkey he would be kinky and dominant most of the time so idk how he would take on morning sex. If he was more awake then it would probably be very long and drawn out with what felt like hours of foreplay. If he was more sleepy then he would become needy and more rushed, still making sure to have you completely dripping for him
•Hui: he would love morning sex because to him it would be such a cute and vulnerable time together. Pressed up against each other tangled in sheets with the only sounds being both of your moans mixed with his kisses and soft loving compliments (writing that made me soft)
•Kino: he would be so down oh my. He would get so excited inside when you asked him. It would litterally be the best sex ever because it would be intimate and cute but also kinky and playful with endless teasing and dirty talk.
Hello! For a prompt: CS kids keeps wanting to walk around the house naked, or take their clothes off. I know it sounds weird, but some kids do this and I remember my mom used to zip up my sister's onesie backwards because she always wanted to take it off, lol! Thank you so much for writing these, you're awesome! :)
OMG this is adorable! And yes, some kids definitely do this. My mom still tells the story on occasion of how she used to let toddler!me do a lap of the house after taking me out of the bath because I LOVED it.
“They’re little exhibionists!” Killian lamented as the twins took off in a run.
Emma had just gotten them out of the bath, which meant that it was what the three-year-olds called “Nakie Time.” Emma had long since topped fighting with them and had taken to letting them make one round of the upstairs before getting them into their pajamas.
“They’re not,” Emma assured him as she fished around in the leftover suds for the kids’ tub toys. One by one she removed the rubber ducks and floating pirate ships. “It’s just a phase; they’ll grow out of it.”
“How can you be so sure?”
“Because I did.”
Killian gaped at her. Then a grin slowly spread across his face as he waggled his eyebrows at her. “You used to have Nakie Time?”
“I don’t remember it or anything but it was written up in my social services file as an observation from my first family,” she shrugged. “Even then, no one thought anything of it. It was just a childhood quirk.”
Grin still on his lips, Killian eyed his wife up and down. “Shame you grew out of it.”
Thank you nonnie! <3 I’m making it kind of like a diary, in Leo’s POV? Sorry it took so long!!
yaaaassss! I love your writing, I can’t resist, I have to send a request!! Can
I have some cute angst/fluff with 2014/2016 Leo? Maybe about how he’s feeling
himself falling for reader as time passes, and how he’s afraid and
self-conscious, but curious and hopeful? And maybe a love confession to go with
that? Thank you hun, keep up the great work <3”
Swearing, a lot of emotions
I don’t own TMNT, and you belong to you <3
I met a girl today, and she’s quite the
character. Her name is [Y/N].
[Y/N]. There’s not much to say about
her, other than she looks like she could be a part time model, but I heard from
Mikey that she’s a bar tender, although he probably made that up in his head.
We saw her again. She was bringing
groceries home, and one of her bags ripped. Of course we went to help. Why was
she bringing food back so late at night?
[Y/N] looked a lot different from when
we first met her. She didn’t have any make up on, and her hair was pulled back
away from her face. She’s got such a beautiful face.
It’s quite contrasting, how someone with
such beauty, would actually care for four mutant turtles.
Her eyes were dark. She’d used
sunglasses during the day to hide them.
It would be nice to see her again.
Mikey brought her to the lair, and they
spent the day watching Disney movies. She’d gotten very excited about The Little
Mermaid, and so did Mikey.
They danced to ‘Part of Your World’
together, and she’d forced me to get involved. It wasn’t like I was annoyed by it;
I just assumed she didn’t want anything to do with me. Mikey was more her
I sat next to her, and I could feel her
excitement. It was addictive. I sat with them the rest of the day; just to feel
the same level of happiness she did watching animated characters on TV. [Y/N]
is going to be a big part of our lives from now on, and I don’t know how I’m
going to handle it, but I’m willing to try and learn how to.
[Y/N] came around again, with pizza.
It’s admirable that she thinks of us. We have April, but it’s hard to think
humans are as nice as the 4 we’ve met. Granted, Vern is a dick sometimes, and
Casey is quite frustrating but they’re still our friends.
And they still care
for us on some level, but [Y/N], she could spend her days taking photos for the
front of glossy magazines, or coffee dates with human men. Yet she’s here whenever she can be. How did we get so
lucky to have these people in our lives?
Again, this entry is about [Y/N].
She said something funny today, but it
got me thinking. She said: “I’d probably only get married for the dress and the
I don’t know if she was serious, but
maybe I can change her mind. I imagine marriage as a loving commitment, and I’d
like her to marry someone she truly loves. I mean, I wouldn’t mind marriage,
and if I had any chance of
getting her. Well, I’d be the luckiest man turtle alive.
She’d probably marry a man who plays
golf and hangs out at a country club with his rich family. He’d probably be
able to buy her whatever she wanted, with a 9 to 5 job. He’d be able to
properly provide for them. And, I want what’s best for [Y/N], so that sounds
pretty great. I just hope I’m invited to the wedding.
I got into an argument with her this
morning. It was so minuscule and petty, but I had to go and ask her if it was
that time of the month and she (as Mikey put it) blew her shit.
I went to her apartment today and she
looked terrible. She confessed to me that she doesn’t like arguing. It reminds
her of all the bad things in this world; how cruel it could be. Why she was so
upset hit me like a ton of bricks, and I felt like a piece of shit to say the
I learnt of her relative’s passing, and
how the funeral was in a week.
I told her I wish I could be there, and
she just cried.
I held her, for the first time. Her
small arms coiled around my body, her head resting on my chest as the tears
poured down her face and puddled between us. It was hard to tell when the
crying stopped, or when my heart stopped beating so fast. I don’t think it did
for a long while. Whilst I wish I could’ve stayed there and held her for
longer, I had to part ways and go on patrol. My duty to serve couldn’t wait.
She hadn’t come to the lair since then.
Of course I rang, and texted. I even emailed. Nothing. I’ve been to her
apartment countless times; she was never there. That, or she just didn’t want to see me. I don’t know where she could
be, and I miss her.
I need to see her. I need to let her
know how sorry I am, for leaving.
Leo knocked on the window. Once, twice,
three times. There wasn’t an answer. Taking matters into his own hands, and
after a minute of struggle, he was in your bedroom. His whole body was wet,
armor dripping droplets on to the cold floor. It had been raining heavily
outside, so much so that there was next to no traffic. For New York City, it
was almost deadly silent.
“[Y/N]…” was the first thing that spilt
from his lips, running a hand over his soaked face and edging closer to the bed
where you were sat with piles of books and paper surrounding you. Looking up,
you paused the music on your laptop and took out your headphones.
“Leo… what’re- why’re you here?”
“I-I had to see you. You haven’t- I
didn’t know if- I’m so sorry.” He was almost pacing your room, fidgeting as he
started into your eyes, trying to pour as much sincerity into his apology, and
this time he wasn’t going to drizzle guilt on it either. He had to take
responsibility for being a dick. It wasn’t going to be like last time.
“I’m fine, just- homework.” Smiling
tightly, you held your textbook up and shuffled further into your pillows
behind you. The little action crushed him; you were further away from him now,
even if it was a couple of millimeters. Pushing some of the books away, you
stood up and turned to face him, flattening out your shirt as you took a deep
“Leo… you weren’t there for me, on a day
I really, really needed you. And being there for someone when they need you, that’s
all friendships and relationships are Leonardo.” With tears in your eyes, you
shook your head. “That’s all they are.”
“I’m sorry [Y/N]. It was wrong of me to
just- leave when you needed me the most. I mean, I could’ve just not gone and
left the guys to deal with it all, but for some reason I keep thinking I need
to be this strong leader all the time and- but this isn’t about me it’s about
you- I’m sorry. I-I appreciate you so much [Y/N] and- what I’m trying to say is
that I can’t let you be upset with me because if that happens then I’ll never
have the chance to- I don’t know- spend more time with you, I’ll never get to ask
you how your day has been, I’ll never be able to drink tea with you again, or
make you laugh again or-” Now, Leonardo was unimaginably close to you, but not
physically. Emotionally. “And, I need you to know that, I am sorry for not
being there and you know I-I would give anything to go back to the moment- the
moment we first met. Before anything went wrong. Before I didn’t stay when you
needed me the most. I am so sorry for what I’ve done.”
And for the second time, in his lifetime, Leonardo held you, just like he had on Valentine’s Day.
