well it sort of is

some fakemons :0 the first one is an electric mascot, based on the kangaroo rat. it lives in a caatinga-like habitat 

the second one is a fan made evolution line for budew, but focusing on physical offense/defense than its counterpart. it’s based on carnations because of an old brazilian nursery rhyme about a carnation who fights with a rose. i don’t have a name for them :p

Do you think a Discworld story starring Moist Von Lipwig where he is in the establishment position would work? For instance he is called back to be the postmaster after the telephone is invented, but now he's facing basically the next gen of Smoking Gnu and is struggling to find an equilibrium and avoid becoming the next Raucher Gilt?

In my head Moist ends up being the establishment. I know not everyone likes the idea of him being the next Patrician, but to me it makes a weird sort of sense (which if you’ve read my fic One Man One Vote I sort of play around with it) as well as comedic brilliance in terms of the quote:

Steal thousands and you’re either the government or a hero.

Poor Moist ends up being both, in my head.

Anyway, I feel like Moist’s days of being a man like Gilt are behind him, oh he’s still more slippery than a bar of soap in the midst of a tsunami, but he’s never really been about the money, not in the way Gilt was. And even then Gilt wasn’t about money.

Moist took the thrill from feeling smarter and the danger in knowing he might get caught out, but he also has a genuine moment of crisis and self realization when Pump19 accuses him of murder, however indirectly. I imagine that figure still keeps him awake some nights.  2.338.

Gilt however has no such qualms, and gets a perverse joy from the power of it. Money is just money, he can always get more of it, men like Gilt always do. No, it’s the power over people that he wants, and we know he’s not above intentional murder to get it, and that is a fundamental difference in their character dynamic.

I think if Moist did find himself on the opposing side to a new technology that threatened the post office, he’d be first in line to install a telephone in the post office. And given how such technology works at its first implementation, it’d be him, the palace and the telephone office all in direct communication. 

He’d also make it the first free public telephone with a purchase of a stamp, making it cheaper to have in your own home…which the companies might be livid about, but then the innovators of technology are generally the ones who want the public to use their tools, after all they make things in a response to need. It’s the people that buy them for distribution that fuck it all up.

He’d find a way to integrate it and make it a part of the way the city functions, in the same way he took the conflict of the new money, and said “well, it’s like the stamp thing you see” and people went “well that Mr Lipwig he’s a clever bugger, there’s probably a trick here, but it’ll probably be a good one so I’ll just keep watching and see”…and the real trick is he makes things work. He uses being quick witted and a likable rascal to make people like him, to get them to change they way they think, he sparkles and shines and puts a gleam on the world and people go along with it because sometimes it’s shards of glass in the rubble, but there’s always the chance of a diamond eventually.

If the trolls had a name for him they’d call him Pyrite, but even fool’s gold has a little of the real thing in it, when you get down to it.

And that’s Moist, he’s carved glass set in fool’s gold and worried every day the shine will rub off. But there’s also iron in those things, and if you’ve got enough iron you can make a man, travel anywhere and keep evil at bay. 

So yes, I think a story where Moist is the Establishment would work, I’ve even penned a few thousand words to that tune, but not with him as the villain. It’s a mugs game being the villain, and Moist is too clever for that.

Baking (Pt.2)

Read part 1 here

Harry and Draco were still standing in the kitchen, one of Harry’s hands entwined in Draco’s blond, gorgeous hair. The sheer perfection hair could reach was astounding to the man who’d never even tried to comb the mess on his own head, let alone model it.

“I ruined your batter.”

“And my coiffure, I might add.” The slightly snarky tone was not missed on Harry’s side, and a wave of embarrassment washed over him. What the hell am I doing? You can’t barely talk to your nemesis for months and then fall into his arms, crying over childhood trauma. Get it together Potter.

“Sorry, Malfoy, I wasn’t…” Harry tried to pull away. Surprisingly strong arms wrapped around him not just for back-rubbing this time, but in full on chest squeezing hug mode. No way in hell was he getting out of this.

“Oh, shut up, Potter. I bloody well don’t have anything better to do in this hell hole then study, bake, do my hair and as of now hug you.” This statement in combination with the actions of its speaker took Harry completely by surprise, just as the sudden wave of emotions had only minutes before. He did not believe the Malfoy he knew from Hogwarts would ever hug him, or anyone else for that matter. It made him a bit uncomfortable, because he didn’t know how to handle him now. Heck, I don’t even know how to handle myself, why would I know how to handle Malfoy?

Said Malfoy was not entirely sure how to handle himself either. He lived on his own in a tiny flat with only piles and piles of books he nicked from the manor as company. Both Pansy and Blaise had left for Italy to escape the judgemental stares but getting a visa was impossible for an ex-death eater. Sure, they wrote often enough, but it had been weeks since Draco had any physical contact besides brushing past people on his way to the Scamander Institute. A place he hadn’t been to for almost two months now because the practical part of his potions degree was done. When he came to think of it, with the other inhabitant of the building doing the shopping, he hadn’t even left his flat for over seven weeks now.

Suddenly Harry blurted out. “Frederick the second.”

“What?” It was the most random thing Draco had ever heard, and he was slightly offended Potter seemed to think it was okay to disturb this moment of peace and tranquillity with random terms.

“Frederick the second discovered baby’s die if they don’t get physical attention.”

Draco was now definitely offended. “Are you calling me a baby? Because if you are,” and now it was Draco who tried to free himself from the other man, “I don’t appreciate…”

“No, no, no, no, that’s not what I meant.” Harry was now flustered more of embarrassment that tears. “I was trying to explain to myself why you would hug me.” His voice was reduced to a whisper again. “I think he might need it”

Harry had said that last bit more to himself than to the other man, his forehead leaning heavily on Draco’s shoulder. The kitchen floor had no eyes to judge him and he didn’t think he could handle judgement at the moment. “It was the first time I realised my aunt and uncle were not treating me like they should. When my teacher from primary school told me about this experiment where they tried to bring up baby’s without the slightest bit of affection. They all died of neglect.” A deep, sad sigh escaped Harry’s throat. “I would hate to see you die of neglect, Malfoy.”

Draco froze. Was Harry trying to save him? Again? By hugging him?

He didn’t need saving, he… Thoughts stopped dead in their tracks. Self centered narcissist. Harry literally just told you he grew up ‘without the slightest bit of affection’.

“That’s pretty fucked up Harry.” His first name slipped out before Draco noticed, and now there was no way back. Harry flinched. He went a bit limp, it seemed. The man had always had a strong reaction to his first name.

“I think you could say that…” Somehow Harry still managed to smile into Draco’s shirt, a place he was still pushed against because Draco was now more holding than hugging him. The bizarreness of the situation only doomed on the man now.

“I guess you really needed to get that of your chest if it’s me you’re telling these things to now.”

The dark haired man nuzzled his neck, his weight slowly shifting from Draco to his own feet. “I can never tell Ron and Hermione. They’re so happy together, I don’t want to put a damper on their spirits. I don’t want them to treat me like a beaten up puppy again. I hate that.”

Draco snorted. What a different world this golden boy lived in, afraid he would worry his friends, afraid they would care too much. “If it’s any consolation, I wasn’t planning on treating you like a puppy any time soon. Beaten up or not. I’m not a great fan of dogs.”

“Are you saying that you are a great fan of me?” Potter looked up from Draco’s shirt, eyes red from crying yet somehow already showing a spark of joy. A small, cheeky smile on his lips.

“Oh, shut up Potter.” To his embarrassment Draco felt heat rise up to his cheeks. This is not how he’d expected his afternoon to go. A true smile now showed on Harry’s face, and he hugged Draco back again. Much less an act of despair, now more an act of… An act of…

“You’re a surprisingly good hugger Malfoy.”

Draco had very much enjoyed the happiness on Harry’s face before. He had no objections to seeing it again.

“You’ll find I’m a quite adequate kisser too.”


Aaargh! So, this took me way too long but I hope it was worth the wait. Btw coiffure is a fancy word for hairdo, but Draco is fancy and french-ish so this seemed more fitting. Thank you for all your kind words!

(Also the experiment mentioned was an actual thing the emperor of the holy roman empire did it in the middle ages, this guy)

i guess i definitely am one of those people, I mean, I've lived and felt what Jack is feeling before and well, most authors don't really write those experiences well or accurately so when reading the latest updates I felt myself go 'woah'

I definitely think you’re not alone, anon. I know there’s quite a few of us who read to kind of go through that angst. I know there’s readers who basically can’t wait for the angst to be over, but in a way, I’m not actually one of them. Like I live for those moments of comfort, but only if they come from hurt first. I need to go through both, somehow, to feel like I’ve really been on a journey with the character.

And I’m really glad this stuff resonates with you and gives you something that you don’t often find, it’s one of the reasons I write this stuff in the first place, because I don’t often find it myself. <3

Harry Potter- beyblade head cannons would be 😍🤓😍

OOH BEYBLADE HP HEADCANONS AJGHFFDJFDDGFJ!!!

Well, okay. This is a bit too broad and I did sort of collate it into a 15 part fic but I’m not going into all that now. BUT BRACE YOURSELF FOR A LOT OF RAMBLING <3

Let me just outline how the beyblade world would figure in the Harry Potter world and I’ll add a few things. (I’ll use dub names. Hope that’s okay!)

Okay, firstly, Mr. Dickinson would definitely be Dumbledore in this situation. He’d be the headmaster of Hogwarts. You can totally see him pushing the boys (often to their own detriment) much like Dumbledore. Also his old associate, Dr. Zaggart could be his Grindelwald.

We have Tyson, the guy who grew up without a mother, a muggle dad and with an emotionally unavailable brother. Also, Hiro, much like Percy is the ambitious prefect who couldn’t give a rat’s ass about family. Both of them end up in Gryffindor. Btw, Tyson’s a seeker (because well, Beyblade’s Tyson commands the wind with Dragoon).

We have Kai, who (no surprise) is in Slytherin. He’s a Parselmouth as well. He’s suffered a traumatic past because his grandfather Voltaire (our own Voldemort) tried to raise an army of pure bloods by training them and abusing them through his loyal subject, the Death Eater, Boris. The Blitz boys too were part of this training, but like Kai, they escaped. All of these boys bear the Dark Mark, a symbol of their past. Kai’s mother, I headcanon, much like Merope Gaunt was a weak witch, tortured by his Grandfather for being weak and falling for Kai’s Muggle dad who abandoned him. Yes, Kai’s backstory coincides a bit with canon Voldy, but we’re sticking to Voltaire as Voldy here.

And since poor traumatized Kai hardly has happy memories, he cannot conjure a patronus! :( He finally does when his teammates show that they love him despite his constant asshole behaviour. And why do I say teammates? Because I totally headcanon that Hogwarts, instead of selecting individuals chooses a team of 6 (Tyson, Kai, Ray, Max, Hilary and Daichi) to take part in the Triwizard Tournament! The Triwizard tournament here is an obvious parallel to the world championships and the other schools are the other teams from different parts of the world.

Anyway, moving on. We have Hilary, our Hermione, who is, without a doubt, the brightest witch of her age. But like Hermione, she chose Gryffindor over Ravenclaw and the sorting hat respected it.

Then we have Ray. Ray is inevitably a Gryffindor. Ray comes from a Pureblood clan from China, but chooses to go to Hogwarts instead of their school. He is also an Animagus and transforms into a white tiger.

Daichi is a Hufflepuff. He’s hardworking, sweet and energetic. Also, he can see Thestrals, because he witnessed his dad die :(

Kenny is a Ravenclaw, because, duh.

Okay, now Max is a Ravenclaw. Hear me out, I know that you’d pick him for Hufflepuff, but Max is a smart, analytical and calculating kid, if canon is anything to go by. I think he prioritizes that and asks the Sorting Hat to place him in Ravenclaw over Slytherin. Why do I say over Slytherin again? Because I totally headcanon that Judy is from a Pureblood family, which like Kai’s is descended from Salazar Slytherin himself!! Max is unaware of his distant connection to Kai, but he is ashamed of the part of him that is a descendant of Slytherin. In this case, I’m drawing upon Max’s bitbeast in the Japanese version - Genbu. Genbu is the tortoise but we all know that mythologically speaking it is depicted as a tortoise and serpent. (Source of image: Wikipedia)

So Max keeps his mother’s pendant with Genbu on it, ie, the locket of Slytherin hidden from others, including his friends, for fear of judgment. He also hides the fact that he is a Parselmouth, because Max is not proud of his lineage. He loves his mom but he has grown up with his Muggle-born dad who is all about being inclusive. Judy distances herself from Max (despite loving him) because he is after all, her unplanned son with a Muggle born wizard.

Also, Judy is Minister for Magic. Because, well, why not. 

Random headcanon: The woman that appears when Wolborg appears is Tala’s mother. Wolborg is Tala’s patronus, but it appears as his mother first because his memory of her is his strongest memory :’)

P.S. Please don’t use these headcanons for any fic because my fic includes these headcanons.

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR THIS ASK! I CAN’T THANK YOU ENOUGH ANON!!!!!!!!

Some of my old followers from my old blog might remember Faith, but if you don’t, well, here he is! He served as a rival of sort for Rose and Ross, but is dateable. Just needs take some.. a lot of effort LOL! Warning though, I might be playing around with his design a little more, so don’t be too surprised if you notice some changes later on! For now, just have some fun with him c:

Coming Home

Summary: Warren comes to terms with one of his worst fears: his father. Kurt helps him deal with his stress.

It was raining when they arrived at Worthington Industries, which Warren knew was damn well indicative of some sort of cataclysmic apocalypse. He felt a small jab of amusement at that; though he had thought of En Sabah Nur as a sort of screwy father figure, his real dad was much more of an apocalyptic force. He swallowed at the thought.

Hey Guys

So @ohhumbleoddity and I were talking lately about what we could do as a Dear Evan Hansen Tribute of sorts, and, well, we came up with an idea. 

Picture this: You Will Be Found, but with vocal and visual contributions from countless different people. It starts out with our “Evan” singing the intro, but as parts begin to be added in, there is video submitted to the project of people singing the parts, holding those little whiteboards that say “#YouWillBeFound,” and, we were thinking, signing parts of the song. The idea is to create the image that the song invokes, of many different people from all over connecting through this one sensation, in this case, Dear Evan Hansen. The plan would be to then upload the video and make sure the Dear Evan Hansen cast & crew sees the impact that they have made, how they’ve brought so many people together.

The question of course is who would be interested in contributing, and while details will not be worked out until later, definitely give this a like if you are interested and share it around

Vc x bm headcanon please.

  • Veteran Commander is amazed by Blade Master’s absolute control over his blade.  He remembers a time, way back when he was fully human, when he himself had that sort of mastery, but… Well, Blade Master takes it to an entirely new level.  Veteran Commander is floored by his dance-like swordsmanship.

  • Blade Master, on the flip side, respects how Veteran Commander has changed and tamed his Arm.  Blade Master himself is still sort of afraid of the tech, but Veteran Commander has totally overcome that, and gained a powerful commanding aura that (if Blade Master is being honest with himself) is sort of a turn-on.

  • Their conversations at first are mostly tactics, because only a Raven can listen to another Raven talk at length about tactical nuances.  But eventually they start talking about random other things.

  • They both know they’re falling hard for each other pretty early on, recognizing the feelings from their times with Seris, but neither is sure what to do about it - after all, how do you go about confessing to yourself?

  • A confession never actually comes.  Veteran Commander Overheats too much to protect Blade Master and nearly dies, and when he recovers, they both realize they’ve been basically treating each other like boyfriends during the recovery period.  One awkward conversation later, they are officially dating.

  • Blade Master tends to keep Veteran Commander’s temper in check with his calmer personality.  However, when someone pisses off Blade Master, Veteran Commander does nothing but step back and watch Blade Master annihilate them.

  • Early morning training routines become early morning training dates.  They steal kisses in between sparring and testing new combos.  It’s sickeningly cute.

  • Neither of them particularly likes PDA, but sometimes you can see them walking through the streets with Blade Master’s human fingers lightly brushing the back of Veteran Commander’s Nasod hand.

  • In private, they’re both quite cuddly, Veteran Commander liking to lean back on Blade Master’s chest and clean both of their blades as Blade Master plays with his hair.  When they switch position, Veteran Commander tends to whisper distracting things in Blade Master’s ear.

  • Neither of them is really possessive, per se, since they’re secure in the other’s loyalty to them.  However, when someone is bothering the other one with persistent advances, their boyfriend will be there in a few minutes to help deflect the annoyance.
Harry Styles’ new album is going to be earth-shattering. Harry is a perfectionist as we all know. He would never settle for less than a completely new innovation. He is honing his skills as a musician in order to be able to produce something beyond expectations. Judging from his widely varied collaborators, this album may very well define what music in this new century should sound like.

Harry Styles’ new album is going to shock the world. That is what fans need to hear. This album is going to be better than what music fans have become all too accustomed to. This isn’t some prefabricated formula for songwriting. It isn’t going to be something five young boys had to rush through with three months to write and record. Harry is stepping as far away from that kind of writing as possible to give fans the music they deserve.

There are five (5) types of Lucy popular in fanfiction! 

1) Rich bitch Lucy. She’s mean for no reason, probably a bully. May have killed a man in the past, but no one knows for sure. This is the reverse fuckboi Natsu. He’s going to “change” her because reasons. May be a gang related AU. Lucy’s father is a dick and Lucy may or may not murder him. Drives six cares. Is unnecessarily cruel to everyone, especially Natsu and sometimes Loke. Has some kind of rivalry with Erza. The only person she’s ever nice to is Levy, but no one knows this until halfway through the story. The only reason for Lucy acting this way is that her mother died.

Sometimes included, but not required:

  • Lucy may be a cheerleader and whoever she’s paired with is either a jock or a nerd. There is no in between. 
  • Lucy’s only friends are Levy and Virgo, but she’s not exactly nice to either of them.

2) New Girl Lucy. Generally canon compliant. Lucy is either a runaway and no one knows, or her father moves a lot because of business. This is the eighth school she’s been to this year and she’s determined not to get attached to people. Utter bookworm. Only friend is Levy, also a nerd, and potentially Juvia/Jellal, both social outcasts. If bullied by either Gajeel or the Sabertooth crew. Natsu (a jock of course) “saves” her after ignoring her existence for three weeks. She probably ends up tutoring him or something. Lucy probably writes poetry and there’s some sort of scene where she’s humiliated by the antagonist, who’s found one of her poems/songs/etc and is now reading it in front of everyone. 

Sometimes included, but not required:

  • fuckboi jock Natsu. New girl Lucy may be compliant with Player!Natsu and she may “change” him as he suddenly falls head over heels for her.
  • Levy is supposed to be her best friend, but is mysteriously absent whenever something bad happens to Lucy, allowing white knight Natsu to swoop in.

3) Dragon slayer Lucy. She’s been kicked out of/left the guild because Lisanna came back and now everyone is ignoring her. Was kicked off the team. May or may not have been abused by members of the guild, likely Natsu and Erza, maybe Gray. The only people that still talk to her are Levy, Gajeel, Mirajane, Wendy, and Happy. Lucy runs away to become stronger and magically meets the celestial dragon slayer. May or may not be introduced to the rest of the dragons. Is taught all the magic! Probably joins Sabertooth. Meets Fairy Tail at the Grand Magic Games. Beats up Natsu in a fight. Something happens and they realize they’re in love. Happy ending.

Sometimes included, but not required:

  • Lucy may or may not shack up with Sting/Rogue for a bit. Sometimes both.
  • Igneel and the rest of the dragons are utter dicks and have just been chilling somewhere while their kids go out of their minds.
  • Lucy’s dragon is probably called Celeste.
  • Lisanna may or may not have been manipulating the guild in some way, and when everyone finds out she’s either murdered or banished. Everyone tries to look for Lucy but can’t find her.
  • Happy is probably pissed at Natsu. He may even go with Lucy.
  • Alternatively may gain a bunch or random keys. Probably labeled as “platinum.” One of them is the dragon, Draco, and he’s super hot, with dark hair and eyes, but he’s probably an asshole. Has a human and dragon form.

4) Sex appeal!Lucy. Acts like Lucy from the first three arcs of FT. Is vain and naive. Overtly sexualized by the writer but has no idea what a penis is. Is Lucy but with no real world experience. All of her development was rolled into a ball and tossed in a dumpster (writers circa 2006-2010 get a pass on this, because they may only be familiar with early Lucy).

Sometimes included, but not required:

  • There might be really weird, awkward smut so… yeah.
  • Slut Shaming.

5) Actual Lucy. Well rounded character. Would do anything for her friends. May have self-doubt issues, but learns to overcome these without magically learning a new type of magic with no restrictions. Is generally sweet, but doesn’t take shit from anyone. May be witty or sarcastic, but is never inherently mean about it. 

Sometimes included, but not required:

  • Everyone’s little sister. 
  • If AU, probably lives alone in an apartment with a dog. Usually small, a terrier breed.
