Dealing with Artistic Burnout

Artistic burnout is a problem many artists experience at some point in their career. If you’ve never experienced it, then consider yourself lucky. But if you have, I wanted to talk a little bit about it as someone who has been there.

Let’s be honest, art is a pretty awesome career. We’re extremely fortunate to get paid to do something we really love. It’s a wonderful thing to be able to turn a hobby into a career, and something I am truly grateful for. But like any career, sometimes it’s stressful and difficult, and it requires a lot of effort. It can be frustrating when that thing you used to do for fun in your free time becomes the thing that is causing you stress. It’s the one unfortunate side effect of turning your hobby into your job. Sometimes you’re just not going to enjoy it.

File #666

“So let me get this straight, Yoongi: you’re saying that this thing is the reason why your friends were found hanging from the ceiling fan? That this was the thing that nearly killed them?”

Yoongi’s convinced a double suicide attempt is actually a murder, and you’re busy stalking a comatose student’s blog.

request - 666: for continue file #666 from welcome to ff.net ; badpasta gone cereal.

horror triggers apply.

5.5k words, horror/thriller, yoongi + reader, college/cop au.


You tug the thick manila folder from the stack of files. File #666, marked as “resolved.” You take it from the storage and back to your cubicle. Ruminate over the case a bit. In a strange, twisted way, it’s funny: for months, members of the department had been making bets and dark-humored jokes about what the six hundredth and sixth case would be. Would it be bizarre? Or something more commonplace?

When case #665 turned out to be the kidnapping of twenty-six schoolchildren and gained international attention, speculations for case #666 grew exponentially. A mass murder. A mysterious outbreak. Or maybe someone would actually manage to summon Satan.

And yet, after all the debates and guesses, case #666 turned out to be a double suicide attempt. It’s uncommon—of course, but it was underwhelming compared to all the expectations it had garnered. You lay the folder on your desk before taking a seat. Two college students. Roommates. Park Jimin and Kim Taehyung. You review their profiles, just to make sure that nothing’s been changed.

Nothing has, as expected.

According to the case file, one of them was a blogger—Jimin, you think—and a link to the blog is hastily scribbled on the bottom corner of the folder:

TITLE: Hold a Lover Close

PAIRING: Matt Murdock x Reader/OC

REQUEST/PROMPT: “I almost lost you” + height difference

WORD COUNT: 1,533 (sorry it’s kind of short - or at least short for me)

GENRES/WARNINGS: Slight smut but not really, slight angst, cannon-level violence.

ADDITIONAL NOTES: This is about as close to smut as I will ever get. I have no idea where the gif is from (i found it on google images and it had no source when i went to the page). Title is from “Lying is the most fun a girl can have without taking her clothes off” by panic! at the disco. I tried making a post with a gif, I hope it looks okay. Enjoy!

THE TIME HAS C O M E

So, as a preface to this, I would like to clarify; there are like, three basic types of high school au.

  • The cheesy 90’s movie type, with stereotypical groupings (I.E, theres the jock, and the Nerd, and the goths, ect.)
  • The Normal type, which is literally just the characters/people in a high school setting. Nothing special, but still enjoyable.
  • And then. There is the angst type. Family issues, reckless behavior, mental issues, found family/breakfast club-esque situation.

Take one look at the links I provided in the last post about it and guess which one I went with. (I’m a sucker for hurt/comfort found family shit dON’T JUDGE ME) I should point out, none of this is supposed to reflect the crew’s actual situations growing up. I know for the most part their families are great and cool people and I don’t mean any disrespect to them by writing this!! Just imagine that any and all family members are basically OC’s.

Also I sort of thought all of this up through short pieces of self-indulgent writing so this is all sort of based around a fic??? So any situational bits like that you can change or ignore if you want. I aint some gatekeeper my dudes.

ANYWAYS, with disclaimers and such out of the way, headcanons??? Headcanons

(Put under a read more because this is gonna be long af)

So I got a private ask recently basically wanting to know how I got to be so ‘successful’ as a writer, and it’s had me thinking a lot about what success is (and how that’s not a static variable) and how rarely creative folks talk about their failures, if they’re not public. Like if you’re livestreaming your failures, that’s one thing, and I’m sure all of you have caught typos or other things - tiny failures that just annoy or are largely invisible or are like ‘oh u miss that.’ But otherwise we tend not to say ‘oh ha this story got rejected again’ or ‘this publisher actually hates my work.’

My metrics for success have changed as I’ve attained them, and I think I’ll make a separate post about that. To be clear, the first time at age 11 I filled an entire page with Courier text from a dodgy old printer in like 1992, I felt like a huge writerly success. Later, my metric for success was ‘the first comment I ever got on an LJ fanfic.’ Later still, my metric for success changed again. So you know. Shifting metrics. Stagnating measures for ‘success’ for me mean…well, stagnation.

But I wanted to sort of document what I perceive to be my many writing failures, because I’m so grateful for them, and because I’m only here today, considered maybe successful by some of you, because of them.

Tell Me Something That I’ll Forget.

Rating: NC-17

Word Count: 11.5K+

Content: Bi!Lashton, polyamory (MFM dynamic), language, graphic content, sexual situations (anal sex, multiple partners, light spanking, orgasm denial, etc.)

A/N: I have returned and it feels so good to be back. This is something that I’ve been working on for quite some time, and it is notably different from what I’ve posted before. I had an idea of Chef Ashton and I’ve always wanted to explore polyamory within the bounds of fanfiction. This is what I came up with after about two months of messing around with it. Have an open mind if this is all new to you. Enjoy. :-)

Feedback is greatly appreciated

elegy for a palace

I need to take you on a very important journey. We’re going through time, back to the summer of 2005.

In case you don’t recall, let me tell you a few things about the summer of 2005. Youtube had been around for about two months. Fall Out Boy and Paramore and The Academy Is were just starting to get popular; the Backstreet Boys had recently reunited, not that anyone cared. There was no such thing as an iPhone, we were still on Generation III of Pokemon and the PS3 wasn’t out yet. To give you a picture of exactly how early this is in internet history, the Numa Numa video came out in December of 2004. We’re talking way back in the wayback.

The internet used to be so fragmented. These days I’d say there are about ten websites that everybody goes on, the Walmarts of the internet, gigantic social networks with userbases larger than the population of New York City that provide all the content and interaction you could possibly need in a sort of one-stop-shopping experience. Everybody is online, and everybody goes to the same shortlist of places. 

It didn’t use to be like that. Ten years ago “social media marketing” was not a thing, nobody had apps on their phone, and the internet was so much less corporate. It was truer, more genuine, and it was also a whole hell of a lot more embarrassing. I want to talk about what I was doing in 2005.

Jonni Thunder AKA Thunderbolt mini-series

When Roy Thomas started working for DC comics in 1981, he wanted to create a NEW male character called Johnny Thunder (he was very fond of the name).  Roy Thomas and Gerry Conway were discussing the neglected private-eye comic book genre and came to the conclusion that nobody had successfully mashed up the private-eye and superhero genres in a while - this was the spark that led Thomas to flesh out the idea for Jonni Thunder AKA Thunderbolt and a rough plot was quickly established. While Conway was too busy to do the actual writing, he did co-plot the first issue of the mini-series.

Roy Thomas’ wife, Dann Thomas, was a big fan of Raymond Chandler (and detective fiction in general) and jumped at the chance to collaborate on this mini-series. It was Roy and Dann who decided that Jonni should be a woman who aspired to be like her hero, Philip Marlowe*. Dann Thomas wrote the first draft for the four issues based on the plot that she, Roy Thomas and Gerry Conway brainstormed. Roy Thomas did a quick re-write smoothing everything out - but the majority of what you read in that series (the snappy dialogue and the one-liners) were written by Dann.

Ernie Colon (who had been working with Thomas on the Arak ongoing series) was Thomas’ first choice as an artist, but Colon got wrapped up with Amethyst, and Dick Giordano was eager to take over as illustrator for this project - so Giordano became the penciller and inker of this mini-series. Giordano was still editorial vice-president of DC comics when he accepted this assignment - prior to Jonni Thunder AKA Thunderbolt, Giordano’s last interior artwork was for Wonder Woman #300 (1983).

Between the conception of Jonni Thunder AKA Thunderbolt in 1981 and the actual realization of the project (due to Thomas’ and Giordano’s busy schedules), DC had published another PI series - Nathaniel Dusk (written by Don McGregor) in 1984. (Alledgedly, McGregor was overjoyed that Nathan Dusk didn’t have to incorporate super-hero elements and was able to keep it strictly detective fiction.)

The mini-series itself had a film noir type detective plot with supernatural/sci-fi/fantastic elements (as usually found in comic books). Curiously, none of the 4 issues in the mini-series had a Comics Code Authority (CCA) Seal on the cover - indicating that it was targeted towards a more mature audience. I noticed that some parts of dialogue were heavy with subtle sexual innuendo, but I hardly doubt it was enough to not be approved by the CCA.

Jonni Thunder AKA Thunderbolt was extremely well received by comic fandom - Don Thompson, editor and respected comic book critic, praised Jonni Thunder AKA Thunderbolt in the Comic Buyer’s Guide and even stated that it read better than Nathaniel Dusk. Alas, Roy Thomas and Dick Giordano’s extermely busy schedules meant that neither would have any time to work on a Jonni Thunder AKA Thunderbolt ongoing series. At best, they would be able to work on the occasional Jonni Thunder AKA Thunderbolt mini-series or graphic novel, but nothing ever came of it.

Jonni Thunder later appeared in Infinity Inc (another book Roy Thomas was writing) from 1986 to 1988 as Skymaster’s main squeeze. Her adventures with the team occurred after the Crisis On Infinite Earths event, so I guess they would count as post-Crisis appearances.

As previously mentioned, this is NOT the first Johnny Thunder to appear in DC comics…

Johnny Thunder (first named ‘Johnny Thunderbolt’) first appeared in Flash Comics #1 (1940). Created by John Wentworth and Stan Aschmeier, he was a bumbling comedic character who had a sentient energy-being thunderbolt pet who would do whatever he commanded (akin to a genie in a bottle who has to obey his master’s wishes). All of his adventures were set in the present-day (so, around World War II). His antics were a regular feature in Flash Comics back-up stories from the get-go – until about 1948 when the newly introduced Black Canary took up his slot. He also starred concurrently in All-Star Comics from 1940 to 1948 as a member of the Justice Society of America (and it looks like Black Canary booted him out of that series, too).**

A few months later, a NEW character named Johnny Thunder appeared in All-American Comics #100 (1948) only a few months after the original Johnny thunder was ousted from his two regular books.  This new Johnny Thunder rode a horse named Black Lightning and his stories took place in the latter half of the 1800s in the American Old West. This new Johnny Thunder did not have access to a thunderbolt pet and really had no connection the aforementioned Johnny Thunder. This new Johnny Thunder had a pretty nice run and even became the headliner for All Star Western in the late 1950s. Western Johnny Thunder’s star faded in 1961 with the cancellation of All Star Western.

Despite the fact that Jonni Thunder had the ability to become a living thunderbolt energy-being and the original Johnny Thunder controlled a sentient thunderbolt energy being, no connection was ever made between the character (missed opportunity?).

I am of the opinion that a catchy name never dies and there will always be a ‘Johnny Thunder’ to reflect whatever is happening in current comic book pop culture as long as DC comics is around. Case in point, in the 1940s (also known as the “Golden Age” of comic books) superhero ‘funny’ books were the predominant genre in comics books, thus we had a comical character with fantastic powers named Johnny Thunder appear. When the superhero genre died out and the Western genre emerged, we suddenly had a new Western-themed vigilante named Johnny Thunder appear. It’s a pretty bold declaration for me to state that Jonni Thunder was a product of the second and third-wave feminism movement (ex: a strong, assertive, independent female who can go toe-to-toe with any man) -  all I could think about while reading Jonni Thunder AKA Thunderbolt was how the lead character reminded me of Candice Bergen’s character Murphy Brown (aired from 1988 to 1998). And finally, for the late 90’s, Jakeem Thunder: an African America youth who gains possession of the original Johnny Thunder’s pet thunderbolt and uses this new power to become a hero. I’m strongly suggesting that DC introduced this new version of ‘Johnny Thunder’ to their readers to demonstrate that they are “hip with it”.

*Philip Marlowe is the main protagonist in Raymond Chandler’s detective fiction.

** Don’t worry, he would re-appear again in Roy ThomasAll-Star Squadron ongoing series (1981 - 1987) and make sporadic appearances in other comic book whenever the Justice Society of America was involved. At the time of Jonni Thunder AKA Thunderbolt’s publication, America vs the Justice Society was also being published.

Without further ado, the story summaries:

Title: How I Wonder What You Are
Bang:Big
Summary: He awoke in an alley, buried under a centimetre of snow, to the feeling of its malicious sting against his naked body. Sloughing the ice crusted over his eyes, he saw at last that he was drenched in blood, filtered black in the light of the blue star shining from his chest.
Without his memories, he isn’t really Tony Stark. As time moves on and they start coming back, after vivid dreams and violent headaches, he still isn’t Tony Stark, not really. He knows his own name and he knows he’s missing, but it feels like another life, a past life. While he may be vague on what was done to him in Hydra’s captivity, he knows he isn’t quite human anymore, not when he can punch through walls, when cuts heal within hours, or when he can absorb information with a touch. His plans to start again go off the rails when a familiar face starts to seek him out, a former Hydra lab-rat like himself, who seems to think they know each other.
His anonymous lifestyle is further interrupted when SHIELD sends its own welcoming committee, including one crazy agent determined to make him into one of the good guys, lest the bad guys get him first.
Warnings:Mature Rating. Character Deaths, Graphic Violence, Body Modification, Human Experimentation, Captivity, Memory Loss / Amnesia, Inexplicit Sexual Content. Brief, implied, or unrequited ‘relationships’ include Rhodey/Pepper, Rhodey/Tony, and Clint/Tony, with stronger and/or eventual focus on their platonic dynamics. Non-Linear timeline.

Title: Justin Case VS The World.
Bang: Big
Summary: He wakes up without a name and without memories. Mr. Stark holds his hand and tells him everything is going to be okay, that he will take care of him. He believes him.
Warnings: None.

Title: Looking into the Heart of Light
Bang: Big
Summary: Tony Stark of Earth-616 has deleted his brain to save his friends from Norman Osborn. Bucky Barnes of Earth-199,999 has gone back into cryosleep to save people from himself. Neither of them much expects anything to happen afterwards, but instead they find themselves together in a dream-space between universes. They quickly find that they are not alone– here, the monsters and demons that haunt their minds are on the outside, and they want blood.
Warnings: explicit mildly kinky sex (gentle dom), some violence and minor injury with scarring, offscreen temporary character death (616 Steve), alcoholism (and some related internalized ableism), self-loathing and guilt, and emotional issues all around (including putting themselves through life threatening situations purposefully). Oh, and Bucky spends like 98% percent of this story without his metal arm (or any left arm), but it’s not a huge deal for him.

Title: Like Winter Nights, the Stars, the Ice
Bang: Big
Summary: Tony wakes up to his mother playing the piano, in the last moment he ever saw them alive. He decides to go with them, only to discover that Bucky seems to have also been caught up in whatever brought Tony there.
Warnings: Mentions of canonical character deaths; references to and portrayals of PTSD and other mental health problems; Tony does something that he thinks might kill him because he’s pretty sure it’s all a dream, but mentions that he wouldn’t mind so much if it turned out to be real and actually kills him; Bucky freaks out a little because Wanda can mess with people’s heads and willingly worked for Hydra in the past.

Title: What the Heart Wants
Bang: Big bang
Summary:
Between his best friend’s upcoming nuptials, said best friend’s new status as future ruler of the kingdom, and trying to fit back into his old life while dealing with the aftereffects of his imprisonment during the war, Bucky has more than enough on his plate. But when an attempt on Howard Stark’s life leaves the royal court in chaos, Bucky still steps up and offers to go fetch Stark’s son, Lord Anthony - the future heir to the throne, and Steve’s fiance - in Steve’s place, in part because keeping Steve safe and out of trouble is second nature, and partially in the hope an actual mission will distract him from the difficulty that has become his life.

What Bucky doesn’t count on is Lord Anthony getting himself kidnapped before Bucky can bring him home, or getting captured himself during his attempt at a rescue. But a promise is a promise, and Bucky has sworn to return Tony to Steve safe and sound - no matter what.
Warnings: Brief descriptions of torture and violence, nightmares, minor character death, arranged marriage, canon-typical violence, mentions of and references to brainwashing.

Title: Re-armed
Bang: Big
Summary: Steve thinks he’s so funny, playing matchmaker. It’s driving Bucky up the wall, and Tony’s not far behind.
Warnings: ALL OF THE PINING, no powers AU, references to PTSD and past suicidal ideation

Title: Arsenal (Working Title)
Bang: Big
Summary:Two years after the Civil War that tore apart everything she’d bled to build, Toni Stark sacrificed herself for her newly-reinstated teammates and ended up stranded in the past. Freed of her name, her fortune, and her hostile ex-teammates, she built herself a life as an agent for the OSS, the American secret service, and, having nothing to lose, accepted a mission to infiltrate the newest player in the war: an organization that call themselves HYDRA.

Then, she met a young draftee with a dreadfully familiar face, and they clicked like she had never clicked with anyone before. By the time she realized she’d fallen for the man who’d cost her everything, it was too late, but she’d always been an all or nothing type of girl, and if she was damning herself, well then…might as well go all the way.
Warnings: Brainwashing, torture, mentions of child abuse, war, mentions of antisemitism and genocide.

Title: Who You Are To Me
Bang: Big
Summary: Bucky started a YouTube channel to give himself something to do after he lost his arm in combat, and quickly became popular. Bucky is invited to a charity event, where he runs into a gorgeous man named Tony. Little does he know Tony is none other than Tony Stark, the richest man in the world.

They manage to keep their relationship private from fans and media for a whole year before Tony blows it by interrupting Bucky in the middle of a live broadcast. Yeah, Bucky warned him, but… Tony missed that part.
Warnings: Mental Health Issues

Title: The Dragon in the Tower
Bang:Mini
Summary: On a journey to save his best friend’s life, Bucky meets a dragon that defies all his expectations and turns his life completely upside down, in more ways than one. Bucky’s not sure when his life turned into a tale of magic and ancient curses, but as long as his village and his dragon make it through okay, he won’t complain.
Much.
Warnings: unwilling magical transformation, serious illness as a driving part of the plot but not actually depicted or described in detail

Title: Twice As Hard
Bang: Big
Summary: After an unplanned one night stand with billionaire and
CEO of SI, Tony Stark…Bucky Barnes has a lot on his plate. Struggling as a young veteran in a shared apartment with his two close friends, he thought he’d manage.

Warnings: Explicit. Sexual content. Depictions/references of
graphic war violence. Coarse language. PTSD/Anxiety (references,
possibly some depictions of it).

Title: Thaw (My Heart)
Bang: Mini
Summary:“Bucky is warm.
It’s the first thing he becomes aware of as he slowly drags himself back into consciousness; that he isn’t cold anymore. He can’t remember the last time he was really, truly warm. Not while tracking through snowy forests with a 30 pound pack on his back, or during rainy days spent crouched in muddy trenches, or strapped to that damned table in that godforsaken HYDRA hellhole. Certainly not on the train, clinging to freezing metal with numb fingers, or while falling, falling, falling, before being swallowed whole by pain, surrounded by endless, blinding whiteness.
But now, Bucky is warm.”
1985; Bucky wakes up after four decades spent frozen in the Austrian alps. HYDRA has been defeated, the Commandos are all alive and well, and Steve is happily married to Peggy, who is just as beautifully fierce as Bucky remembers her. An AU in which (almost) everyone lives, but things still get complicated, because Tony without baggage wouldn’t be Tony.
Warnings: sexual content (including unsafe sex/discussion of HIV), non-graphic verbal abuse, and manipulating behaviour (neither of which happens between main characters)

Title: And They Don’t Have a Clue
Bang: Mini
Summary: Bucky is in love with Tony, who he thinks is in love with Steve. Tony’s in love with Bucky, who he’s pretty sure is dating Steve. Steve really needs less oblivious friends
Warnings: Self-esteem issues, mentions of infidelity although none actually happens. From Steve’s POV.

Title: A Few Good Men (working title)
Bang: Big

A West Wing AU (working summary)
Warnings: swearing, politics, mentions of police misconduct, mentions of bombings and death

Title: Regrettable
Bang: mini
Summary:No one had any choice over what they said or where they appeared, they just showed up from one day to the next; the first words your soulmate would ever say to you.

Bucky’s appeared on his torso when he was thirteen and were a source of amusement and pride. Tony’s came when he was six and he hated them, they made his mother cry.

No one had any choice over what they said or where they appeared, but Tony was going to hide his and Bucky, well he got the feeling that they weren’t quite so funny anymore.

Warnings: Self esteem issues, injury from fighting, underage drinking (and alcohol abuse), swearing, happy ending though. Soulmate AU.

New Stories

Title: Hello, Soldier
Bang: Big

There are rumors that someone is stealing, and producing, Stark Industries weapons, and selling them to the enemy, and they have a lead on who’s doing it.
No one has seen Anthony Stark for years since his return from being kidnapped in Afghanistan. He quickly shut down weapons manufacturing, and started working on armor for their troops, advancements in medicine, and enhanced prosthetics for returning military members.
Bucky hadn’t been expecting to hear that Steve was working for Stark industries now, but he’s not complaining when he goes to meet his best friend for lunch, and runs into Tony Carbonell. Who incidentally was the one who built his new metal arm. But why does Tony end up in the middle of his job to find a traitor? He hadn’t expected things to turn this quickly.
Warnings: Mentions of war, loss of limbs, light swearing, Modern setting,Non-Powered AU, mild Secret Identity

No one heard them.
And no one knew they were coming.
When the Chitauri attack, the streets of New York become a battleground- people get hurt, they die, they’re gone.
Sometimes Tony wonders if he’s the last human on earth.
Sometimes, he hopes he is. At least when he dies, it’ll be with the knowledge that the last of humanity went out with a bang.
At least he’ll have fought.
And then, maybe, he can find the person he lived and died for.
Warnings: mild sexual content (maybe?), violence, no others so far

Dolce: a breakdown

It’s been a few days and I keep attempting to sit down and write this but I realize it works out a lot better when I write it directly after watching the episode. But a few things were going on this week that prevented me from typing this up, one of those being my gf’s amazing art show (it rocked!)

I’ve officially watched it twice now so here I go.

Now that things are moving in a more linear direction in this show and we’ve picked up speed on the plot line train, things have really taken off. But the best thing about this entire episode and what is to come next week is that I still have absolutely no idea how they are going to capture Hannibal.

None. I have no clue.

Just speculations.

A lot of you have already hit the nail on the head concerning my feelings and thoughts on certain scenes from this week and I’ve enjoyed what you’ve had to say. Also, I’ve enjoyed the counter arguments so if you ever see something I type that you may have different feeling about, don’t be afraid to tell me. I love media debates as long as they stay professional! 

I won’t be able to cover everything in this because honestly, there was a lot this week. But a few key points I want to address are these:

1. Jack and Will

Ah, Jack and Will. Will and Jack. The relationship that I can never quite feel completely comfortable with because no matter what the situation, Jack always likes to push Will.

I get that Jack wants to save Hannibal for Will. I see what he’s doing, I love that he realizes that their relationship is something that he has no place in. However, Jack has a bigger place than he realizes. Which is why he was invited to dinner.

Missed Me, Missed Me

Peeta Mellark didn’t expect to wake up on the third morning living in New Orleans in a different bed than he had the previous morning—it just ended up that when he rolled over on that surprisingly chilly Saturday morning, his arm bumped into a naked, tan-skinned torso swathed in satin sheets and a curtain of the darkest brown hair he’d ever seen before in his life.”

Warnings - Brief mention of suicide of a minor character (not graphic).

very shitty shameless finale recap

i had to type it up for this poor soul ladyimpala1 that asked me to recap it for her.  this is not particularly well done and i’m sure i left out a ton but since i had to further traumatize myself to type it out, i figured i’d post it for anybody who hasn’t seen and wants a shitty recap first.  

sarcasm and stupidness and no real insight ahead.


Fiona and ShutUpSean (sorry; i hate him):  Fiona rolled around, literally, with her husband Gus.  But he doesn’t know if he wants to be around because Fickle Fiona can’t make up her mind.  So Fickle Fiona goes and finds ShutUpSean at the diner and tells him she loves him and they kiss but ShutUpSean is only happy when he’s jerking her around so he tells her to grow up, adjusts his blue balls, and man-angsts himself off to the rathole from whence he came.

Debbie:  Fiona briefly remembers she’s supposed to be watching the siblings she fought so hard to have guardianship off, so she comes home to find LIam, for the eleventyththousand time, watching some super inappropriate shit on tv.  Look the kid’s already scarred by your super-neglect, Fiona, I don’t know why you’re freaked by zombies.  Anyway, Fiona goes upstairs to find Debbie and Derek in bed together.  It’s not graphic but i remember when she was nine and crying over Aunt Ginger.  This is not OK.  Then Debbie tells her she’s pregnant (probably!)  The show will continue to dangle this ‘is she or isn’t she’ into next season, probably, because it ends with her taking a pregnancy test and we don’t know the result.  Also, Fiona tries to remind Debbie that babies are a big fucking deal but Debbie apparently doesn’t remember that she’s been witness to Monica’s baby parade, a thousand teen pregnancies, and also took care of several summer’s worth of rash inducing bratz because all Debbie wants is BABIEZ and a underage shotgun wedding Kentucky styles.  I can say this because my kinfolk are from Kentucky.  

Lip:  Lip has some kinky sex with his playboy bunny of a professor while her creepy husband sits in the corner and watches.  my adored zebrawallpaper had the best observation about him:  'he looks like Stephen King!’  he so does.  it was gross.  And Awesome Amanda was awesome but Lip has absolutely no clue - he thinks he’s all in love with freaky Helene because she’s freaky.  Newsflash, Lip…Mandy was kinky too, and far more awesome, and not married.  Ditto for Karen.  I love you, Lip, but I don’t get you.  At all.  Anyway, Awesome Amanda spoke for us all and socked him good.

Frank:  blah blah boring Costa Rica is pretty/i liked Bianca’s caftan…  there was a gun and some angst and then Bianca drowned herself, apparently, and gave Frank a sad.  The sad he never was able to muster for any of his children.  Ever.  I had no care and I really didn’t pay attention to this, sorry.

Kev/V: (added because i feel shitty that i forgot them) kev’s an easy lay and no one is surprised.   basically, repeat everything from the last episode (’you slept with how many co-eds??!’) and add a visit to the clinic.  basically, kev needs a decontamination bath and a lot of shots.  finally, he proves his utter devotion to v, despite his twenty-somethingtiming her, by leaving their twins to scream it out.  because nothing say ‘i love you’ like rampant parental neglect.  *copyright: Frank Gallagher/Fiona Gallagher*  on the good side, Shanola was so radiant that i could have just watched her on mute, in slow motion, all night long.  also, they made one very important mention of my girl, Svetlana, who is apparently still staying with them.  For now.  *sigh*  (this is not the time for my ‘you’ll pry Svetlana from my cold dead hands’ rant, is it?)

um…ok…. *sigh*  Ian x Mickey.  Please take a deep breath.  It’s really not going to be an easy read.

So um..our first glimpse of Mickey is him fucking some chick (i so thought it was Svetlana for a minute but it wasn’t).  Don’t ask me, hon, I just don’t know.  Apparently he’s not having a good time and homosexuality is Shameless’s Viagara because Mickey can go go go without ever finishing.  The girl is numb and leaves.  End of that scene except I think he sad dials Ian, I don’t remember now.  PTSD.

So Ian goes to a truck stop diner with Monica and sees her doing some shady shit to get money.  He also ignores Mickey’s millionth phone call.  Then they go to her trailer domicile because Monica (and the writers) love a good white trash stereotype.  Her man Walter is probably about Ian’s age and looks like Vanilla Ice after his career went south.  Ian immediately hates Walter, finds a bunch of crystal meth in Monica’s purse, realizes she’s a dealer and Walter is cooking it up for her to sell.  His moments with Monica were quite beautiful and quite sad.  She tells him that he needs to find someone who loves him ad accepts him for who he is and whole fandom is temporarily fooled into thinking this means he’s going back to Mickey.

Mickey sad-dials Ian for the ten millionth time and when Ian doesn’t answer he goes off into the shadows with a guy he calls cupcake.  Mercifully, we don’t see anything else.

Mickey finally gets a phone call from Ian and runs (RUNS!!!) to the Gallagher house, where Ian is sitting on the porch.  

This is where the ultra mega suck comes in.  I just want to warn you first before you keep reading.  This is not good at all.  I’m serious.  There is no good here, I’m afraid I have bad news.

Ian tells Mickey something about how Mickey used to love him for him and love him the way he is, and he hates his medication and doesn’t want to keep taking it and he wants to know if Mickey will stay with him anyway if he doesn’t take it.  Mickey doesn’t say anything but come all, we all know that answer was HELL THE FUCK YES.  Then Mickey tells him HE LOVES HIM and oh god he’s so sincere and Ian doesn’t even blink, he just shines it on with a 'what does that even mean?“  Mickey says they take care of each other and again it’s like speaking to a stone wall.  So Mickey says that Ian is breaking up with him and he’s totally teary and it’s just so sad and Ian’s like 'yeah, pretty much’ and if it wasn’t sucky enough just then SAMMI SHOWS UP WITH A FUCKING GUN AND CHASES MICKEY SHOOTING AT HIM and Ian is like 'whatevs’ and greets his family and this is apparently supposed to be funny????? and i’m sorry to say that is the last we see of Ian x Mickey or Mickey at all.  There’s another brief scene, a throwback to the pilot, of Ian and Lip in the van and it would have been wonderful if I hadn’t been flailing in agony.

It was just…I expected the break up but this was a gross and stupid slap in the face. I’m sorry.

Author Interview - W000ly

Time for another interview! I got to catch up with the amazing @w000ly today! She’s got so much going on but she was kind enough to humor me. Let’s see what she has to say, shall we?


Wooly! How are you?

I’m good! Stressed and tired because I’m in the midst of my finals, but it’ll all be over soon!

Finals. 😬 Something I left behind yeeears ago. So tell me - what drew you into the Everlark fandom?

Well. I had a few friends who had read THG and kept teasing me for being so much like Katniss. Out of spite I decided to never read the books… until one day I did, and it was the start of a whole new chapter in my life. The ending in particular resonated with me. There was a lot I was struggling with, and writing Everlark was a way for me to understand it, and work through it. I came to the fandom to find other people like me.

I love your spite! I would do the same. In what ways do your friends think you’re like Katniss? 

Keep reading

first follow forever :)

I’m sorry for the crappy graphic lol I had to study for my exams so i do not have any time to design a graphic OTL. I guess after I post this I’ll come back and edit it and make a better one :)  (also my skills suck this is my first time. I’ll get better I promise!) 

But today, January 11th, marks a special day (at least for me). Today is the exact day that I was first introduced to kpop (specifically, exo)! Pretty important day lol (at least for this blog). And then a few days or week from now marks this blog’s first birthday! Time flies when you’re into kpop. Also, just a week or two ago I hit 500 followers, which I’m extremely grateful for ohmygodddd.

[ENG TRANS] Jia BNT International Interview ^^

Q: How did you feel about getting invited to the dinner?

A: When I got invited, I was shocked and also thankful for it. The China-Korea Cultural Exchange has a great meaning.

Q: You attended the dinner as a singer in Korea. Was there any trouble choosing an outfit for that day?

A: I was worried as it was my first time attending such an event. Truthfully, one of my worries was wearing black there. I went wearing a clean, white shirt and matched it with a skirt.

Q: Was there any episode at the event?

A: I remember that Fei and I were sitting down and waiting as we arrived first but the others were standing while waiting. When the President and General Secretary Xi Jinping came in at the back, we rushed to stand. We were sweating cause we were the only ones sitting.  

Q: What kind of conversations did you have with the President and General Secretary Xi Jinping?

A: The President held my hand. However, he said, “Work hard for the China-Korea Cultural Exchange in the future.” I was so thrilled when he told me that. General Secretary Xu Jinping told me, “You speak Chinese well.” So I told him, “I’m Chinese.” (laughs) That was a really nerve-racking yet exciting moment. I can still remember it vividly till now.

Q: I’m surprised at your glamorous body.

A: It was hidden (laughs)

Q: When did you come to Korea?

A: I came in 2007. 1st April?

Q: Korean food that you still can’t eat?

A: I still can’t eat naengmyeon (cold noodles). I like eating food when it’s hot. I still like eating Shabu Shabu even in the summer. I can’t eat pickles too. I always remove the pickles when I eat kimbap.

Q: Food that I eat well?

A: Yukgaejang, deonjang jjigae, chicken ribs, gamjatang, I eat everything well (laughs) I eat everything well besides cold food and pickles!

Q: That seems like a lot of meals. Which of your parents do you resemble?

A: I look a lot like my father in terms of appearance and personality. I resemble my mother in terms of body/ figure. Shall I show you? (Laughs) (She showed a photo with her phone – It was a photo of her father in a beret.) I heard from people that I resemble my father ever since I was young. Do we look alike? (Laughs)

Q: What is Jia’s role in Miss A?

A: I’m the bass. I have a low voice so I don’t take the high parts.

Q: Who do you want to act with and Jia’s ideal type?

A: Actor that I want to breathe with? Number 1 for my ideal type is Daniel Wu! 2nd place is Hu Ge and 3rd place is Roy Qiu. I really like Roy Qiu. In Korea, Lee Min Ho. I liked him since <Boys Over Flowers>. When I saw Lee Min Ho with the perm hair, it was so cool. He had a manly charm. 2nd place would be Kim Soo Hyun, 3rd place Kim Woo Bin, 4th place Song Seung Heon, 5th place Jang Woo Sung (laughs) Jang Woo Sung looks like he would like Fei. (Q: What kind of guys do you think Fei would like?) She looks like she would like guys who are sexy and have nice facial features.

Q: Have you seen any Chinese actors?

A: I’ve never seen them directly but I’ve seen a lot of their works. (Q: Please comment on the works.) Internal Affairs! Please work on many other things. 

Q: How is the filming for the movie <Third Love> coming along?

A: The schedule keeps getting pushed back so I have yet to go to the filming site.

Q: Something that I feel is different from the others while living till present.

A: I have a strong image on stage; there are many people who told me I have a strong gaze on stage. But many told me I’m different when they meet me in person. People who don’t know me have prejudices against me (laughs)

Q: Entertainment programme(s) that I want to challenge?

A: Running Man! I like Kwang Soo oppa. (Q: Isn’t he different from Lee Min Ho who’s in the ideal type list?) Um… Kwang Soo oppa is really funny and whenever he comes out on Running Man, he makes me laugh a lot. I know his popularity is high in China too (laughs)

Q: Other programme(s) that I want to challenge?

A: I want to try <We Got Married> too.

Q: Who do you want to appear on <We Got Married> with?

A: It seems like it would be interesting if I went on with Tao. I had a scandal with him last time, we’re definitely not in that kind of relationship but because we are good friends, I was embarrassed.

Recently, when I see the photos that fans posted, there are still a lot of them that has Tao and I in them. We look like a good match and our images are similar too. Our eyes go up.

And he’s a special friend. We seem to click well. 4-dimentional? The best self-satisfaction? Been there, done that (laughs) One day we can say ‘I’m so good-looking’ but another day, we can say ‘I’m so ugly’ remorsefully (laughs)

Q: Miss A’s albums have a lot of leg images. Is it a graphic of any member’s legs?

A: It’s none of our legs (laughs) it’s just a graphic. It’s an image we really like. It’s shaped like the letter “A” in Miss A (laughs)

Q: If Miss A had a unique concept?

A: Because we thought it fits, we have never had any costume design or accessory that are the same. (Example) They are all lines but the design is different? Honestly, there are no more concepts left to do now (laughs) we’re always up or lying on the floor, held the bar (laughs)

Q: It seems like there are many various attempts compared to other girl groups.

A: Honestly, when I look at our debut stage, it was really racy. We exposed a lot and also lay on the floor during our performances, but no one thought it was racy at that time. Back then, we didn’t think it is racy too but when I look at it again now, it’s quite racy. I guess as time goes by, you see things now that you didn’t see previously (laughs)

Q: You can’t miss the most recent ‘bar dance’ in your performance. What’s the reason behind it?

A: I had no choice (laughs) because the choreography is organized; this move appears to be playful. I thought I had to do something with the bar, but it’s like it was made for me to breathe (laughs)

But because the stage is so tough/intense, I can’t do it for more than 5 times.

Q: Miss A’s Min and Suzy, how do they call you?

A: In China, there are no titles such as “unnie” or “oppa”. Thus, since we were trainees, I asked them to drop the honorifics and speak to me comfortably. Because there are no titles in China, it was tough when I first came to Korea.

Q: Episode while filming <One and A Half Summer>?

A: Nichkhun recited his lines in English and I recited mine in Chinese. Foreign actors have always been like that (doing it our own way).

I’ve always been close with Nichkhun. Our company’s artists are all in good terms, but I’ve only filmed with him twice in the drama (laughs)

And my character is a student who excels in her studies and people who watched the preview/trailer think that the character does not fit me well (laughs) I have a lot of lines that are related to math and also difficult lines but I’ve never one NG (laughs)

Q: Speaking of studying, do you feel like learning anything?

A: Fashion? Recently, I feel like going to school. I have many ideas (fashion-related) and I want to express them. I like to draw too (laughs)

Q: You’ve showed many fashion styles.

A: Yes, but in the recent ‘Joe Fresh launch event’, I tried a different style. Wearing sports socks with heels (laughs) many people do not know why I wore it like this. Anyway, it’s a fashion style that I’m personally satisfied with (laughs)

The outfit that I wore at Designer Choi Bum Suk’s fashion show was 100% my clothes. The fashion show starts at 7 but I only got the call from Min at 2. At 5, I got the call asking me to go, I couldn’t do my hair or makeup and I have to go wearing my own clothes (laughs)

Q: You’re a MC on <Idol True Colors>. Is there any interesting episode?

A: It’s fun. GOT7 and a Chinese soloist came recently. Before this, Jang Nara and Jang Hyuk came too (laughs) the views of the broadcast came out well on the Internet and the Chinese fans like it too so it’s good. My friends in China called and told me that they are watching the show well too (laughs)

Q: Among the other lines, I heard you’re the leader of the ‘China Line’.

A: Yes (laughs) I somehow became the leader so I’ve also heard a lot of unpleasant comments. I think I have some leadership in me.

I also see Zhou Mi daily. We’re friends who are like family (laughs) the China line isn’t fixed exactly. We will have that name when the Chinese meet, there seem to be no exact members in the China Line.

Q: I’ve also heard that you and 4minute’s Hyuna have a special relationship.

A: We’re really close. When Hyuna calls me at midnight saying, “Jia, I’m hungry,” we will go out and have supper together (laughs) we’ve known each other for a long time. We also talk about fashion together a lot.

Q: Ways that Jia deal with stress?

A: Sing and dance, watch TV, teatime, sleep and even until shopping!

Q: The two tattoos behind your ankles are impressive. Do they have any meaning?

A: On one side, it’s a compass in a heart and on the other side; it’s a heart with the words ‘Follow your heart’ in it. It means “Follow your heart when you lost your way/direction.” I saw it somewhere and liked it so I did the tattoo (laughs)

Q: If you were given a huge sum of money, how would you use it?

A: I’ll give it to my mother. Until now, I’ve been giving my mother all the money I’ve earned.
