this was the best short ever

whistlingwindtree  asked:

Any advice on choosing titles for fics? 😊

I’m not sure I’m the best person to ask because I tend to just go for the best pun I can come up with :) I will tell you some things I try to do, just for myself:

keep it short - I want people to be able to remember it and tell other people about it and if it’s too long that just makes it difficult

keep it related to the story - either a major plot point or something related to the setting or the overall emotional arc.

have fun with it - my best ever fic title and one that I’ll never top was “Idea So Meta, Even The Acronym” (ISMETA) :)

Remember, people judge books by covers and the title of your fic is the closest thing to a cover that AO3 has.If your average reader doesn’t “get it” they might just skip your fic entirely.

Unless of course you have a good summary :D

You’re a strong man jack

I couldn’t help but notice how @therealjacksepticeye got a little choked up at this moment. And when he got into how relatable he was to these choices I couldn’t help but feel the same way. My heart tugged when he mentioned how this year wasn’t the best for him project wise. Well jack, lemme tell u this: I don’t give a shit how many times these projects or whatever u had ideas for didn’t work. U NEVER EVER EVER EVER disappoint us no matter how many times u have that thought tht u do. You inspire us to do better every single day and we can’t thank u enough for it. It doesn’t matter if the video is short or long, good or bad, u still make our days better and that’s what counts. You’re a strong man jack, and for those barriers in ur mind that u wanna break through next year: I know u can do it. WE ALL KNOW u can do it. All us 17M+ people in this amazing community know u can do it. We will be here to support u and pick u back up whenever u fall over no matter what. We love u jack. Don’t ever forget that.

Bottom line is: just trust that we believe in u because we do. ❤️

the reason im so obnoxious about stanning red velvet is because of how much unnecessary hate they get and the treatment SM gives them.

they can’t go through one comeback without another group interrupting it in some sort of way whether that’s with a comeback of their own or having teasers brought out for one. their last comeback was cut short compared to others. anytime they put out something, they’re compared to f(x) and seen as unoriginal. wendy was on the verge of having a serious eating disorder after fans complained about her being too “fat.” yeri is constantly told she doesn’t belong there and that she’s rude/annoying. irene is looked at as someone with a pretty face and no talent.

so if you ever see me sayin they’re legends and the best thing to ever happen to SM, i mean it. you and ya lil group will live so pipe down.

PART I


“You’re really trying to tell me that Low is David Bowie’s best album to date?” Jonathan nodded, opening the brown paper bag that held his lunch.

“That’s exactly what I’m telling you,” Y/N’s eyes widened, then shoved her lunch tray to the side. She leaned on her elbows, her hands in front of her.

“I could name five other Bowie albums, easily, that blow Low out of the water,” Jonathan took a bite of his sandwich, then motioned to Y/N.

“Go on then,”

Station to Station,” Y/N’s right index finger began to point to the fingers on her left hand to count. “Aladdin Sane, The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders From Mars -obviously-, Diamond Dogs, and my number one favorite Bowie album of all time,” Jonathan mimed exactly what Y/N was saying with her, “Hunky Dory.” Y/N took a deep breath as she finished, then shoved a french fry in her mouth. “It’s like I don’t even know you sometimes,” She shook her head and shrugged her shoulders jokingly, “But, I mean, Low is still a great album,” That made Jonathan chuckle. A body suddenly appeared on the bench next to Y/N, scaring the life out of her. She had one hand on her mouth and the other over her heart to stop herself from screaming. Y/N turned her head and saw Steve Harrington with a dumb grin on his face.

“Tonight?” He looked at Y/N expectantly.

“What?” Her pupils were still wide from the shock, and the word sounded pretty dumb coming from her.

Six werewolves

1. Really you only have mild lycanthropy and it’s largely under control with medication, plus the light pollution in your area is so bad you can hardly see the moon anyway. So you’ve changed maybe twice since diagnosis. No big deal. You have an emergency kennel. Lacking the usual outlet, your lycanthropy mainly manifests as an intense emotional reaction to dogs being told that they are good dogs, which never fails to make you sob.

2. You know, you should really have thought it through beforehand. It was careless. But there was a part of you that longed to be the first werewolf on the moon. And it was such an honour to be accepted into the space program! You never actually meant to get into the rocket, in the end. It just sort of happened. Now you’re half-way there and pretty sure there’s going to be a problem. Oops.

3. So your wolf form is fairly petite and scrubs up well and long story short with a prosthetic or two you’re now in the final of the dog agility contest and you might be able to win half of a rather fetching sofa. It’d be better if it were on a full moon, but you’ve got a bunch of moon videos to watch and you’re pretty hopeful that might work.

4. You spend each full moon locked away in a comfortable basement. You’re not sure if you’ve ever turned into a wolf but you do like rare steak so best to be on the safe side. You have a lot of books. You’re kind of looking forward to it.

5. You grew up with dogs. It’s not your fault. I mean, that’s kind of how you got bitten in the first place. Anyway, the rampage was going so well until someone threw a stick. Now you think the villagers might be mocking you, but also you just need to catch this one, you can totally do it, oh yes! Who’s a good girl?

6. You don’t actually turn into a wolf. You’re just the sort of person who feels very deeply about things and also has a mysterious and regrettable past. The wolf thing is a metaphor. You’re wishing you hadn’t adopted it now, though. These things get out of hand. Last night you metaphorically tore out the throats of two innocent bystanders, before metaphorically unleashing a bloodcurdling howl as you metaphorically slunk into the forest. You think you might also have metaphorically peed on a fire hydrant.

Sup I didn’t wanna bother my friends w/ this so here I am 

I love what’s going on w/ these two, first time watching this scene in the intro short, I thought her outfit looked kinda like Mercy’s. 

But it just hit me that her headgear doesn’t resemble a halo, as much as it resembles horns ???

NICE

[character interactions]

Moira: How do you feel Lacroix?
Widowmaker: I don’t feel *scoffs* That’s the point, isn’t it?

McCree: I always thought hirin’ you was a mistake
Moira: The best mistake you would ever make

Moira: I must know how you function.
Zenyatta: Existence is a mystery, isn’t it?

A big thanks to BTS for inventing shorts. 

stay in the dark (a mileven fic)

hey there mileven readers, it’s me, ya girl savannah. the lovely @thecakegoesmeow requested Mike and Eleven hanging out in the cabin and Mike seeing El’s amazing curls for the first time. I hope it’s everything you wanted! (ao3 link) 


“What’s going on in there?” Chief Jim Hopper shouted, for the fifth time- and yes, he was counting. He stood outside the bathroom door, conveniently locked, knocking again. “Come on, kiddo it’s been like an hour.”

“20 minutes!” she yelled from behind the locked door.

Hopper looked around to show the empty room the confusion on his face. “What?” he shouted back.

“You said an hour!” he heard her yell again, “it’s only be twenty minutes.”

“It’s called an exaggeration, El. Wasn’t that your word of the day, what, like a week ago? I’d have thought you would have that one down, you sure seem to like ‘em.” he mused, laughing at his own joke. When the teenager behind the door didn’t respond, Hopper let out a sigh of exasperation. Guess it was still too early to start using Dad Jokes on her.  “Listen, he’s gonna be here any minute. You gonna stay in there the whole time he’s here?”

El’s reflection in the mirror frowned at her, and she untangled her goopy hands from her head. “Stupid hair,” she grumbled, her shoulders falling.

“What’d you say?” she heard her Hopper’s muffled voice ask. El’s forehead collided with the mirror as she let it drop, giving up altogether and letting her hands hang down by her sides.

“My hair.” El half whispered. Her eyes trained in on the the other girl in the mirror, her mind focused on the curls that stuck up way behind her head, willing them to obey and lay flat. They began to fall back in slow motion, El finally smiling. Stay, she prayed.

Flick-Shot 101

I have seen a lot of people asking about what a “flick-shot” is and while I’m going to be covering all this in my Hanzo guide, I figured I could throw this together with some GIFs to help give people a good idea of what they are and why they are important.

Note: In this guide I will be talking mostly about Hanzo and using Hanzo GIFs to showcase the flick-shot. Other characters can flick shot as well, such as Widowmaker, McCree, Pharah, Mei, Genji, etc. Any hero that doesn’t rely on aim tracking (Soldier 76, Sombra, Tracer, Zarya’s beam, etc) can flick-shot. The same techniques can be applied to any of these heroes (taking into account hitscan vs projectile heroes).

ALSO THE GIFS DON’T WORK DIRECTLY ON TUMBLR SO I HAVE PROVIDED GIPHY LINKS BELOW THEIR RESPECTIVE PICTURES.

What is a flick-shot?

A “flick-shot” also known as “twitch-aiming” is a technique used in some FPS games that allows for split-second reaction kills on enemies. It is based on trained muscle memory rather than cognitive aiming. There are some in-depth reddit posts about what all that means, but here is a simplified version:

Basically, it takes longer for your mind to process that there is an enemy in your crosshairs and that you need to fire, followed by the pressing of said buttons, than it does to just shoot. What this means is you can train yourself to react instinctively to certain visual cues and shoot accurately without having to move your mouse precisely and think about the shot.

You can take precise shots, especially if an enemy is immobile or unaware, but it is faster and more efficient to use muscle memory and flick-shots. If you have ever seen a really cool Hanzo POTG where he kills multiple enemies very quickly with headshots, it is likely they are using reactionary flick-shots to make these kills.

So, why should I care?

In short, you don’t have to. It takes a lot of time and effort to train up flick-shots and muscle memory, and if you don’t want to play A LOT of Hanzo, Widowmaker, Mei, whatever, then this might not be for you. However, if you want to improve your aim and your consistency on a hero, this is the best way to go about it. Like I said, you CAN take time to aim, but you will end up losing a lot of sniper duels to more experienced players.

Alright, so that’s nice and all, but how do I know if I’m flick-shotting?

Good question. This is something that’s hard to explain with words, and really only be shown, so I’ve made some Hanzo GIFs to hopefully give you a better comparison.

Here is an example of Hanzo with steady aim at medium range:

https://giphy.com/gifs/3o6fIWI5HanBgYHab6/html5

Here is an example of a medium range Hanzo flick-shot:

https://giphy.com/gifs/xT0xewtUyVlCm1epUI/html5

In the first GIF my mouse moves more slowly as I aim at the bots’ heads. In the second, I am able to get quicker kills. Quicker kills means less damage to you which means more time alive.

Here is an example of a longer range steady Hanzo shot:

https://giphy.com/gifs/l2QE92AAXH0SUKPuw/html5

Here is an example of a longer range Hanzo flick:

https://giphy.com/gifs/3ohs83cNw2VQXMeEfe/html5

As you can see, from a longer range the flick is more pronounced and a bit bigger. This is my muscle memory for allowing arrow travel time to the target. 

Here is an example of Hanzo aiming at moving bots:

https://giphy.com/gifs/3ohs7OQPhe5IumLHji/html5

Here is an example of flick shots on moving bots:

https://giphy.com/gifs/xT0xerxNd6MVDMG8Za/html5

In both of these GIFs I get multiple successive kills, but in the second I am able to move and maneuver much more quickly than when I spend time aiming at each target.

Oh man, this seems really difficult. I don’t know if I’m good enough to do this.

WRONG. You CAN do this. Like I said, it takes practice and time (and a lot of time in the practice range), but it IS possible for anyone to do it. Anyone can get a lucky Hanzo shot, but if you’re willing to put time and effort into mastering a hero, anyone can be really good. I’ve done so much of this even on my bad Hanzo days I can still hit flick shots. It’s become second nature just by playing the hero and enjoying the game. 

If you want to improve, just do your best and keep practicing, and I know you can do it.
