this-is-my-first-post-on-this-blog

The first time I spoke to Jimmy Iovine, it was on a 5 a.m. conference call with my management team and the top guys at Apple. Earlier that day, Father’s Day to be exact, I had written a blog post criticizing Apple Music, the new streaming service Jimmy had worked tirelessly to create and cultivate. The ‘Apple Letter’ went viral. I remember thinking, ‘Jimmy Iovine must hate me right now.’ But to my surprise, the voice I heard on the other end of the phone was jovial and thoughtful. He told me that he thought those of us in the industry speaking up about this were right. Later on I would learn that Jimmy was one of the voices that advocated in my favor, and in favor of fairly compensating all music creators for Apple’s three-month free trial period.

“Since that day, I’ve gone on to work with Jimmy and [Apple Music original content director] Larry Jackson on a concert film of The 1989 World Tour. The brainstorming sessions and meetings about this project were electric, with ideas being shared and bounced around with such excitement. Jimmy is one of those rare people who is thrilled by doing what he does every day. His energy is contagious.

“I’ll never know what would’ve happened if Jimmy hadn’t been at Apple, factoring his industry knowledge, humility and generosity into the equation. But I do know this: Jimmy respects the people who make music, and in turn, has become one of the most loved and revered people in the music world.

Community Homebrewing: Setting

Hello people,

I have tallied your votes on the community homebrewing project. First of all, the question of if people wanted to see everything on this blog or on a seperate blog. The results were pretty split but most people preferred to see everything on this blog. 

The results of what to create were pretty clear. Creating a setting came in first. The only one which came even a little bit close was races.

This means we’ll start off with creating a setting, my idea was that we’d start off with deciding on a time period.

I would like you guys to comment on this post with the number of the preferred time period, you can only vote on two.

1. Prehestoric

2. Classical antiquity  (700 BC - 500 AD)

3. Dark ages (500-800)

4. High Middle ages (1000-1300)

5. Renaissance (1300-1700)

6. Industrial Revolution (1700-1900)

7. Victorian Era (1837-1901)

8. The World Wars (1900-1950)

9. Modern (1950-near future)

10. Far future

Which ones would you like to see?

Day 5- You’re Insecure? Don’t Know What for

In my AU trio, there is this one, where Dipper, or rather Oren, is a demon stranded in our dimension with limited power. Bill is human, and transgender.

Before Dipper, Bill didn’t have any sort of support, as what little he could have had was messed up by his own psychic abilities (whenever he got emotion, they began to spike up and affect his surroundings) so he just kept on running away…until Pine Tree that is. And the golden boy still can’t believe it at times.


The fan-freaking-tastic that is @marshonthemellow is responsible for the colors!

I promise I shall fully write these guys out, i swear!

Dust to Dust update!

The Papyrus Angst Train only goes one way children! Awful things are about to happen, because the story has diverged from their source material, which begs the question…where exactly is Sans?  

That being said, as a whole I’m pleased with these pages.

1 Year of One-Shots-Supernatural

Today is a special day for me. A very very special day. 

1 year ago today, I posted my first one shot. It was short, and I didn’t really know what I was doing at the time. 

But it started something, something I had no idea would become this important.

One year ago today, I had no job, next to no life, and felt hopeless. I had been writing for years, but barely anyone had read my writing. I had read so many Supernatural one shots here on tumblr, and I thought “Why not give it a try? What’s the worst that could happen?”

So I made this blog. I designed it. And I wrote and posted my first one shot. It was a few days before my next one was posted, but by then I could feel something changing in me. 

So I started writing every day. I enjoyed it, loved it. It was something to help push me through the hard times. And it still is.

Slowly, my followers grew. I started series. I started talking with people, and one person that is now one of my closest friends. 

I have grown, I have learned, and I wouldn’t be here without this blog. So I just wanted to say thank you. 

Thank you for helping me grow as a writer. Thank you for helping me grow as a person. Thank you for helping me connect with more people than I thought possible. Thank you for everything.

I love you all. Really. Thank you for making this year amazing and wonderful. And here is to another great year to come! 

I will be putting up a special story today, one that I have wanted to write for a long time. I hope you enjoy it, and celebrate one year with me.

Lots of love,

Kayla

Hey I just wanted to say that I really like your blog and do you have any advise for a secret Reylo shipper? I was against them at first then curiosity got the best of me now I'm trash for the trash but I'm legit terrified of actually posting pro reylo cause of the harsh backlash I know I'll receive not to mention a lot of my mutuals are anti Reylo too and I'm just not for the hate :/

hiya, thanks!

well, i honestly do not understand this website anymore

of all the “problematic” ships in the world, they have latched onto a pairing from a disney movie, a pairing that involves a prince and a scavenger who fight on equal footing, both physically and mentally, and represent part light, part darkness AND ARE ALSO CHARACTERS IN STAR WARS. FRICKIN STAR WARS. 

UGH.

ffs, they’re like a fluffier version of zutara. 

and this, apparently is the antichrist ship right now. THIS.

i’d say stick to your guns, no matter your mutuals. it’s not your job to censor your blog for their sake. here’s a thought; if they don’t want to see reylo on their dashboard, fucking block that shit out. tumblr savior is a thing.

that being said, u should also stick to the reylo tag, strictly. even tagging something like “tfa” might sadly get the puritans frothing. ofc, some trolls want you to feel unsafe even in the reylo tag. ignore them and keep doing you. they are bullies, and act and speak like bullies and engaging them is pointless because they are convinced we all support abuse and they are here to save our heathen souls and preach the sj gospel. i would make a joke about how much they remind me of supreme leader snoke, but i’m too classy so i’ll just say, have fun and ignore. there are some quality people in this fandom and that’s all you need really. 

@hmsindecision, you deal with so much bullshit on here and get accused of being bigoted and exclusionary and a hundred other things, but i’ve always found you to have so much empathy and patience and reason. your presence on my dash is very comforting. you’re one of the first lesfems i interacted with after making this blog and i really feel that reading your posts helped me find my footing and place here. thank you, sister.

CLARE’S FIRST ANNUAL GALENTINE’S DAY CELEBRATION

February 14th is for lovers, but February 13th is for celebrating your friends!

And I want to celebrate mine!

So, if we’re mutuals (or even if we’re not, anyone who follows this blog is welcome) you’re invited to my First Annual Galentine’s Day Celebration!

Basically, if you’re following me, like/reblog this post, send me a ❤, and tomorrow I’ll have surprise for you! It might be blog compliments, music, doodles, or cheesy valentines! Maybe all of the above!

The point is, I want to show some love to my pals and gals.

(Note: you do not have to identify as a gal to participate in this. I want to love on everyone)

(Some people might get Galentine’s Day surprises even if they don’t send a message. Just because.)

Fire Emblem: Fates Notes

In preparation for Fire Emblem: Fates being released next week, I thought I might make some notes about this blog. I pre-ordered the special edition version of Fates, and I will be playing Conquest first and then Birthright (and then obviously Revelation). I will continue to have Fire Emblem: Fates (and all variations) blacklisted until I’ve finished Birthright (maybe even Revelation) to avoid any spoilers. If anyone wants to avoid spoilers, I will be tagging posts as “fire emblem fates”, “fe14″, “fire emblem fates spoilers”, “conquest spoilers”, “birthright spoilers”, and “revelation spoilers”, respectively. Any Fates posts on this blog before I finish Birthright (or Revelation) will be either my own commentary on my playthroughs or other random news. (I tend to like going through the whole game myself before I say anything on it, so that may not even be an issue.) The posts on my playthroughs will be under the tag “mzap plays fire emblem: fates” (for all three games) and “tactician notes.”

Happy gaming, everyone!

First of all, I’d like to say thank you! I didn’t know this much people would actually like my Chat Noir… I came in here scared that everyone would have their attention on the better Chat Noirs, but I’ve found out that everyone gets a chance. :^) So thank you for dealing with me and my lame OOC posts, and unfortunately, I still don’t know some of you guys well… but hey, this blog gained followers really fast which I’m still uber confused about?

Unfortunately, there isn’t anything for the personals who follow me. Sorry about that, but I deeply appreciate your support! Thank you for following me! 

Rules

  1. This giveaway is ONLY for RP blogs– and you must be following me (preferably before my posting of this)!
  2. Each like and reblog counts as an entry. However, no giveaway blogs and do not enter from your other blogs. That doesn’t get you an extra entry, it just gets you disqualified.
  3. I’ll be ending this giveaway on March 5th, 2016 @ 7:00 PM Central Time. However, this doesn’t guarantee that the prizes will be done immediately. I’m… really slow.
  4. Winners will be generated with a random generator.

Prizes

1st place receives 1 promo banner, an icon format with 15 icons, and a fully coded container theme (this part will take a long time in particular since i hate coding lol). The winner will have a choice of what “special” functions they would like on their theme! (ex: pop-ups, custom asks, update tab, music player, etc.)

2nd place receives 1 promo banner, an icon format with 10 icons, and a theme graphic (this will not be coded, you will have to do the coding yourself. but if you don’t know how to code it, i can help you out!)

3rd place receives 1 promo banner, and an icon format with 5 icons.

Samples

Promos: [x], [x], [x]

Themes (my other rp blogs tbh): [x], [x], [x]

     okay, so i will probably make a more flashy follow forever thingy in the future at some point ( with like some sort of giveaway and everything ), but there are just so many wonderful people around here that i wanted to take a moment to appreciate those people who have made my time here so special. i’ve had roleplay blogs before, but this is the first one that i’ve had in a while where i just have so much fun and i get to talk to all of you lovely people. you’ve all been so kind and friendly, welcoming, giving me confidence and entertainment. you are all so very lovely, and if i wanted this post to be a mile long, i would list everything i love about each of my individual followers ( all 109 of you ). but for now i will be focusing on those who have had a major impact on my experience here with jemma.

@t-chambler ; you and i have created a lovely little crossover ship, haven’t we? i think tara and jemma compliment each other really well and i love the chemistry our writing has together, plus you’re a super awesome mun and i wouldn’t change a thing about you. a+ tara chambler.

@pastyfitz ; dood, camilla, bruh. I LOVE YOU. i’m so glad that we met and i consider you a good friend already. thanks for putting up with my drunk ass on skype that night, i know how annoying i can be when i’ve been drinking ( speaking of, i’m pretty intoxicated rn tbh ) lol. ur the bestest.

@shotgunaxecombo ; you are quite possibly the most awesome person i’ve talked to on here. i love the whole banter thing we’ve got going on and the fact that we’ve never once ( or at least i haven’t )gotten offended by some of the awful shit we say to each other. xD i know you love me. :P this demon loves you too.

@antagxnized ; ok so we haven’t interacted much but i’m adding you because i love seeing every single one of your posts on my dash. i will go out of my way to read your updates thoroughly because you have literally the best ward blog i have ever witnessed. plus the mun is a total babe, so everything is aesthetically pleasing on ur blog. <3

@tremoriisms ; i still owe this cinnamon roll and skype date. it will happen, i’ve just been a bit busy lately. but she’s an awesome person to talk to and is one of my favorite daisy’s around and has literally the best coulson blog i’ve ever seen.

@hisbestgiirl ; so i’ve never actually watched agent carter, but as far as i can tell she is an AMAZING peggy! and she and i have one of my favorite threads going with her on this blog and i’m loving every word of it!

@whydoyouthinkileft ; she is such a sweet, sweet, sweet person and i love her to pieces. i was a bit afraid to talk to her or reblog things from her blog because i didn’t know if she would hate me for being another jemma reblogging things from her blog. lol. but she is precious and i love her.

@biochcmistt ; the only other jemma i would ever write with. i am the subconscious jemma to her real jemma and i love that we came up with that idea for our blogs. she’s perfect.

@whiskeyandtwoshotglasses ; i could not say enough nice things about this person. the muse is written to perfection and the mun has so much passion for hunter that it’s moving. and i love just having conversations about our muses and fandom with her because i love her outlook on things. she’s one of my favorite people to talk to around here.

@daisyquakesthings ; so far, she’s one of my favorite daisys around here. there are so many daisy blogs and this will be the one i will always seek out for plots involving her and jemma. i just love the way she writes the inhuman so perfectly and our writing flows together so well.

@lovelornrocketscientist ; and i’m saving the best for last here. YOU are perfection. i’m so glad you found me, your writing is the most beautiful thing i’ve ever read within this fandom. my threads with you are what i look forward to most when i check my notifications, and also we’re like the exact same person. the only person i’ve ever been able to talk to about my past that actually understands the situations personally. you’re the best fitz here and you’re a beautiful person and don’t ever stop being you. c:

Hey bfam! Just wanted to say I'm so glad this blog exists. A while back I was reading through your posts and saw someone suggested yes to tomatoes moisturizer for oily skin so I decided to try it since I could never find a moisturizer that would soak into my skin and not leave it shiny. The yes to tomatoes moisturizer has been perfect! First moisturizer I've ever tried that didn't leave me looking like a shiny mess, and that's coming from someone with combo oily skin. Thanks for all the tips! :D

We’re so happy we could help!
