Elizajane I love your response to that anon. I myself, dont upload often and I'm fine with that. I like to write my fics to the best of ability and make them perfect to my standards (kind of like Dan and his videos). Plus with school and life I don't have time to write and it shouldn't have to feel like a chore because some people can't have the decency to wait and understand that as authors that takes time. It doesn't matter if it is "just a fanfiction", it's still a piece of art.

Thank you so much. I’m really happy you liked my reply. I happen to love phanbliss with all my heart. They are a wonderful human being whose going through a very rough time in life, and I know, just from scrolling their blog and talking to them from time to time, that they right for their own personal enjoyment as one of the few personal things they can indulge in. The fact that anyone would attack them for doing so and having more than one story going at a time, makes me so beyond angry.

On top of that, this is an issue that I see prevalent in fandoms constantly. People forget that we aren’t being paid to do this. People forget that we don’t thrive off of being told horrible, mean things. People forget that we often lose motivation to work on WIP’s because no one is commenting or cheering us on. We, as a community, are often taken advantage of, and when we indulge ourselves by creating a second WIP, we’re suddenly attacked because we don’t update the other one often enough. 

Writing it hard. Writing is for me. I share it with this community because I want to share my art, but I don’t have to share it at all. I don’t have to give it to anyone but my close friends. I am not required to finish it or stick to an uploading schedule because you want more of it. I am not required to change the story because you’d rather see it a different way. I will write what I want to write, for me, and I will be beyond happy if you happen to enjoy it as well, but I’m not going to go out of my way to do things for you just FOR YOU when you do not pay me. 

This goes for any author in any fandom. It breaks my heart the pressure that we as fandom authors get put under. I, too, prefer to have my fics be “perfect’ before I post, or as perfect as I can perceive them to be, but I’ve been pressured in the past to post as soon as I write, and I always end up regretting it and getting mean comments because of that pressure. 

People need to remember that we are human too, and we need encouragement, not threats and anger. We also need to be treated like humans who sometimes are dealing with rough times in life. We are not your slaves. 

Pros and Cons in dating Nico Jr “Nicky” Holmes

I was tagged by @thefoxandhersimblr for Nicky, thanks pumpkin!

Pros:

1. Generous~ Nicky loves to buy gifts and he’s not cheap at all. Any girl who dates Nicky can expect lavish dates, luxurious gifts and spending money.

2. Lavish lifestyle ~ Nicky is one of the most well-known, wealthiest young men in San Myshuno, and he is catered to wherever he goes. Girls who date him never have to worry about waiting in line at the hottest club, sitting in nosebleed seats at games and concerts, or being treated rudely by anyone at all… everything is VIP/celebrity status when dating Nicky!

3. Intelligent conversation ~ Nicky is extremely smart, and once a girl gets past his party boy persona, there is a very intellectual soul who loves to discuss fine art, classic literature and history. 

4. Supportive ~ Nicky can be a caring boyfriend who will support his girlfriend through any rough or difficult decision, and will offer meaningful advice. He was very supportive of Diosa when she discovered she was pregnant.

Cons:

Nicky is calculating, conniving and has a deep mean streak. He likes to cause emotional turmoil in people he considers beneath him, it gives him a power trip. He’s insecure, easily bored and very spoiled as he’s never had anyone tell him no. He has a wicked temper and can be violent when he’s angry.

I tag @maladi777    @catssimblr , @ajalisimsy, @glammoose, @wooldawn and @twistedsimblr  for any Sim of yours you choose!

I’m going to sleep tonight with just so much love in my heart? I’m so glad I signed up for this place 4 years ago and I’m so glad I decided to talk to people in the CS fandom and I’m so glad I met some of the best people I wil ever know.

I’m so like ridiculously thankful for tumblr and OUAT because it’s gotten me through some rough shit and brought me friends who I get to keep in my pocket, who are there for me in a way I’ve never really had before. It’s inspired me to write and that has brought me so much joy and made me feel like I’ve somehow made baby-chinx-who-wanted-to-be-a-writer’s dreams happen a bit.

Honestly, being able to sink into the stories we tell here and being able to rely on people who are some of the best relationships in my life rn has been incredible and I’m so grateful and happy and just—

*hugs for all*

A Fresh Start / Cheryl Blossom

Clarifications 

Smiling sadly, you wrap your arms around Cheryl and let her bury her face in your neck. “You don’t need to explain,” you whisper, understanding what she was trying to tell you.

“But-”

“Shh,” you cut her off, continuing to rub her back. “Cheryl, I understand.”

Your girlfriend has been going through an unimaginable rough time-her twin brother being murdered only for her to eventually find out it was at her father’s hand, and then to have him have killed himself. You were in complete understanding of why she needed some time to herself.

“I will be here for you no matter what,” you say quietly. “When you need me, I’m only a phone call away.”

Cheryl was reduced to sobs by now, “I’m so sorry.”

“Please don’t apologise,” you insist. “You need time and you need space, I can give you that.”

“You’re too good for me,” she mumbles.

Her words have you pulling away, moving your hands to cup her face and forcing her to look at you, “Don’t say that,” you tell her firmly. “because it’s not true.”

You gently wipe away some of the lone tears that continue to fall, before resting your forehead against hers.

Silence engulfs the two of you, the only sounds being emitted was from Cheryl as she slowly gains control of her breathing and her tears. 

“I love you so much,” she murmurs. 

Gripping the back of her shirt in your fist, you press your head forward slightly and place a soft kiss upon her lips. “And I love you,” you whisper. “I’ll wait for you-no matter how long it takes.”

“I can’t ask you to do that,” Cheryl denies, trying to step out of your embrace.

Your hold on her only tightens as you shake your head, “You’re not asking me of anything,” you remind her. “I’m just informing you,” you smile. “You’re going to get through this, Cheryl. Whether you need my help or not, it’s always going to be on offer. I’m not leaving you alone to deal with this yourself, I’m just giving you the space and time in which you need to do so-I’ll still be here for you.”

Meeting her gaze, your smile fades as you take in her saddening expression.

“What is it?”

“I don’t want you to waste your time on me.”

Rolling your eyes, your hand travels to the back of her neck, “When it comes to you, my time is never wasted. I promise you, Cheryl, that I’m here for you.”

You spot Cheryl as soon as you take a seat on the bleachers, her red hair making her stand out from the rest of the girls on the team.

The two of you had broken up almost three months ago, and while you admit it was difficult being just a friend-you knew it was what she needed. 

As Cheryl turns away from the girls with a scowl, her eyes settle upon you and her expression brightens immediately while she offers you a small wave. Chuckling under you breath, you raise a hand in reply.

You had kept your promise to Cheryl, you’d been there for her every step of the way-giving her as much support as she required to get through the past few weeks. 

It’s hard to explain how much you miss her, because technically-you still have her, she’s still around and you still see her every day but it wasn’t the same. There were times where all you wanted to do was steal her away, remove her from situations you knew she felt like she couldn’t handle-but you understood that wasn’t an option.

Cheryl has to overcome all of this at her own pace, otherwise she may never fully come to terms with all that has happened. 

From the middle of the gym, Cheryl can tell that you had begun to get lost within your thoughts and it brought a smile to her face. She dismisses the team from practice and makes her way towards you without looking back at the surprised expression of her teammates.

She tries not to laugh as you jump when she places her hand on your shoulder to gain your attention.

“Hey,” she greets.

“Hi,” you murmur, letting your eyes dart across her face as if to try and find a sign that something was wrong. 

Cheryl takes a seat beside you, her knee leaning into your thigh as she turns to face you completely. “You okay?”

Nodding, you lean back against the seat behind you-keeping your eyes on hers. “Did you need something?” you ask gently.

The redhead shakes her head, “No,” she smiles, “I just wanted to spend some time with you.”

You cast your eyes over the gym to find it empty of cheerleaders, raising an eyebrow when you turn back to Cheryl-she only shrugs. “Did you want to go somewhere else?” you offer, but she shakes her head again to answer. “Okay then,” you say, “we can stay here.”

Cheryl moves closer to you, almost cuddling into your side which forces you to wrap an arm around her. With your hand resting on her hip, you release a small sigh as Cheryl’s head leans against your shoulder. 

Taking your free hand in hers, Cheryl runs her fingers over yours before weaving them together. “Are you okay?” you ask her, gently squeezing her hip.

Cheryl gives a small laugh, “No.”

Frowning, you shift your head to look down at her face, “What’s wrong?”

“Everything,” she mumbles. “It’s just all getting worse and I just miss you so much.”

Swallowing hard, you bring your hand from her hip to the side of her face, gently pressing her into you, “I miss you to Cheryl.”

“It was a terrible idea to break up.”

“No,” you deny, “you needed this.”

She groans, tightening her grip on your hand, “I know, but I hate it.”

Your laughter brings a smile to her face, “Tell me about it.”

Neither of you say anything until Cheryl pulls away, looking somewhat hesitant, “Do you think…do you think we could try again?”

Caressing her cheek, your lips turn upwards, “Of course we can.” You move the locks of hair that had fallen over her face back behind her ears. “Are you sure now-”

Cheryl effectively cuts you off by moving her lips against yours. It takes only a brief moment of hesitation before responding to the kiss.

When she finally pulls away, you can’t help but chuckle, “I guess you are sure,” you murmur.

“I’m sorry for making you wait,” Cheryl tells you, her eyes dropping to her lap. 

You shake your head, “I’m not-like I said, you needed time and I was happy to give it to you. I will always be willing to wait for you.”

Her gaze slowly lifts, her expression gentle but her eyes determined, “You’ll never have to wait for me again, not like this.”

You don’t bother replying, instead you send her a smile and pull her back into your embrace.

Hey loves

Sorry I have been MIA, I will be back with the regular cute and somewhat vain posts soon 💜

I’ve learned a lot through these recent rough times, but I do miss you


Get ready for a stronger better cuter Emma

😘👩🏻‍💻

Hey my son is very sick and it’s been almost a week of him getting worse everyday so please do NOT count with me for anything for the following weeks. I’m going to be inactive on Tumblr and I’ll put this on my personal as well so if people are curious they can read what’s going on.


I’m going through a rough time and I’m not in the mood to talk or joke or anything. It’s not a good time and it won’t be until my son is ok and God fucking knows when will that be.

the little boy showing off his Lego truck killed me - “SpiderMan liked my truck!” 😭

This is so amazing putting a smile on the kids faces when they r going through a rough time. Support and Protect Black Kids! They are the future of America! 

the law of attraction is very much real. you don’t necessarily have to “think positive” every second of every day, that’s not realistic. but be mindful and align your thoughts with what you’re trying to accomplish. express gratitude as much as you can, and always anticipate the best out of every situation, even when you’re going through a rough patch.

raise your vibration and the universe will match you tenfold.

Reminder
  • You are worthy even if you are disabled.
  • You are worthy even if you cannot work or hold a job
  • You are worthy even if you cannot support yourself.
  • You are worthy even if you cost your loved ones a lot of money because of your medical care
  • you are worthy even if you are homeless

How you are treated speaks to the people in power and their priorities, not your inherent worth as a human being. You are beautiful, special, and important & your life matters. I know you didn’t ask to be sick or disabled, and anything that happened bc of that is not your fault. I love you <3 

Speeches

You open Thomas’ new Sanders Sides video, entitled simply, “Speeches.” After a moment of loading, it begins. Not with his usual, “What is up everybody?!” Simply the loud title card and a fade-in.

Of Roman, standing in his usual spot. He’s smiling. “Hello, my brave and beautiful prince, princess, or non-binary royalty! Tis I, the great Prince Roman! I would just like to take a moment to commend you on your bravery! One such as you deserves all the best, yet time and again you face your dragon-witch! I promise you that with a little magic, and many-a Disney song—along with some encouraging from the valiant yours truly—that dragon-witch will be slain and no longer be able to do you harm! Keep fighting, you strong prince, princess, or non-binary royalty! You will succeed!”

Patton appears after a jump cut, standing in front of the blinds, as always. “Hey kiddo, Dad Patton here! I know you’re going through a trying time in your life. Everyone does! But I gotta say: you’re gonna do just fine. Life’s problems come and go, but some of the hardest ones can always be slightly improved by a couple-a dad jokes! Never be afraid of the power of laughter. I promise you that everything will turn out alright. And you can’t let life get down. I mean, you can’t let life get you down. But if life gets down, you win that dance-off!” He pauses. “Get it? Get down? Like dancing? No? Okay.” Patton grins and giggles. “Anyway! Much love from your internet old man! Hi Brave, I’m Dad!”

Logan follows Patton. “Good day, my star student,” he begins, straightening his glasses. “While I could stand here and wax philosophical about human existence and the nature of the reasons why you are where you are, I’ve been told by the others that could possibly be emotionally insensitive. So I won’t. But I do have a lesson for you. As follows: some say life is a roller coaster. They’re wrong. A roller coaster is a feat of physics and engineering achieved by the arches and spins getting smaller and smaller to maintain momentum. Life does not work that way. Life’s arches and spins vary in intensity and size. In this way, life resembles the visual manifestation of sound waves. Life is music, my young student. A beautiful symphony that has dips and swells, creating an experience unique to each composer, each musician, and each listener. Once you realize this, it gets easier to listen to the music of life.”

Another audio file cuts in. “Aww! You actually listened to me!”

“Be quiet, Roman, or I’ll send you to detention!” Logan retorts. He looks back to the camera. “Anyway. Interruption aside: I hope you take that lesson into your life. It will be worth remembering. Have a lovely day, star student, and feel better soon!”

Virgil appears last. “Hey,” he says, not quite looking at the camera. “Look, the others can be sappy and positive all they want. I guess that’s their job, or something. Especially Dad and Sir Sings-A-Lot. I’m not required to be that way. It’s part of what I am. But today is different. Today is a day when life is even darker than me. Which, I guess, is saying something. But everything is going to be fine. A little anxiety is a good thing. It’ll keep you alive and attentive. But don’t let it overwhelm you. Pretty sure Teach over there explained it to Thomas before. Some productivity curve whose name I can’t remember—”

“Yerkes-Dodson Curve!” Logan interrupts.

“Whatever,” Virgil mutters. “So while life is hard, it’ll get better. Once it does, just keep a little bit of me around and you’ll still be okay. But not too much. I guess I can get a little… toxic in large doses. So be safe, okay kid? Just be careful. That’s what I’m here for.” He nods.

The video shuts off.

t-a-ylor-tot  asked:

Hey Wil. I'm having a rough time right now. But depression lies right?

Depression lies, and you are stronger than you think.

I’m so sorry you’re having a rough time. If you haven’t, maybe think about doing one or more of these things:

1. Take a shower.

2. Go for a short walk.

3. Eat a nutritious meal.

4. Snuggle a dog or a cat.

5. Sit in a quiet place, and count ten breaths. Count to 5 on each breath in, and count to ten on each breath out.

Check in with me in a day or so and let me know how you’re doing, okay? We’re gonna get through the rough days.

I went back to therapy yesterday….

I’ve been going through some rough times lately. I have a history of depression and anxiety, and yesterday, I finally took that first step to getting better again: I saw a therapist.

She started our session by asking why I was coming to her, and all the Bad Things just came pouring out: issues with friends, sick family members, bad choices I’ve made recently, hating my job, not feeling important to anyone. She didn’t tell me it was all in my head. She just listened and offered me a tissue when I started to cry.

Then she paused, and asked me a question: “What is good in your life right now?”

It took me a minute to think of anything. But then, I started explaining Achievement Hunter; how they make me laugh and enable me to escape. I told her about all of you in the community, and how inclusive and loving you all are, even to people who are relatively new fans, like me.

She smiled and told me she was going to write “Achievement Hunter” in big letters in my file because “that’s important.”

She’s right. It’s important. So, thank you all for being the good thing in my life. Whether you’re an actual member of @officialah or you’re a member of the community; you are my Happy Thought.
