which i almost included

Some stuff on @majesticduxk​ blog got me thinking and since I waste time pretty compulsively when I’m exhausted, here, have some lists.

I’ve compiled lists of the top twenty Destiel fics by Kudos, Bookmarks, Hits and Comments. Since kudos and bookmarks are both “one per reader,” I consider them the most reliable indicator of popularity (though keeping in mind that popularity does not equal quality necessarily and that popularity is self-perpetuating given how many people find fics by ranking by kudos - once a fic hits a certain escape velocity people will read it just because it’s popular). The other two lists - comments and hits - are much less reliable and are below the cut, as is a little discussion/analysis, and a “How many have YOU read” mini meme thing… (I’ve read 17…)

One of the many things I’ve learned, is that no matter what you do, somebody is around the next corner with a better version of it. And if that person is a man it might not even be better, it just might get more attention. And sometimes that person is you. The you that’s never satisfied with what you just did, because you’re obsessed with whatever is next. The one constant is this. It’s you. It’s us. The project gets us to the people. Because it’s people that got me where I am. People like Diane Gould. People like my husband, and my first partner, Gordon Clark. People like my last and best partner, Cameron Howe. And for all the rest of you, I hope that tonight can be the beginning of something. Something so that even if we see each other across the corporate battle lines one day, that you will know that I am rooting for you. I can’t help but not. Because I am a partner by trade, and a mother and a sister by design. And I am - I am so proud to be on this journey with you.

“When I take something from a man - his ship, his money, his life - I don’t hide behind a clerk. I don’t hide behind the law. I don’t hide behind anything. I look him in his eye and I give him every chance to deny me. That is legitimate.”

Interview: Diana

Today we’re joined by Diana. Diana is a phenomenal artist who does a little bit of everything. She’s a theater performer who has acted in a few plays. She’s also dedicated to music, playing the viola in an orchestra. Diana also does quite a bit of writing. She’s writing for a videogame demo and she also writes a lot of fanfiction. Diana has a wonderful enthusiasm for her craft, as you’ll soon read. My thanks to her for taking the time to participate in this interview.

WORK

Please, tell us about your art.

I’m an artist in several arts, I suppose. I did theatre training for about 6 years in my local theatre, performed in my school plays and such. I also belong to a small community orchestra in which I play the viola (do not worry if you haven’t heard of it – I hadn’t, either). Finally, I write. I’ve participated in NaNoWriMo for the past 4 years, I’m a co-writer in an upcoming demo of an indie video game, and I also write and post fanfiction.

What inspires you?

In music, what often inspires me is the sense of community in orchestra, the joy of playing together, and the beauty of the music. One just longs to hear music. Performing in theatre is something that I just enjoy immensely, and simply having so much fun makes me want to keep doing it. When writing, though, what often inspires me is the books I read, and the people I want to see in stories.

What got you interested in your field?  Have you always wanted to be an artist?

I’ve loved stories since I was a kid, and especially telling them. My younger cousins were the unlucky recipients of my made-up bedtime stories, and I loved performing as a storyteller. Later on, that translated into theatre and writing. I’d always wanted to dedicate myself to it, yes. Dreamed of being a professional author for a long time, if you can believe it.  For music, my mom signed me up, lame as it might sound.

Do you have any kind of special or unique signature, symbol, or feature you include in your work that you’d be willing to reveal?

Diverse characters in writing, I’d like to think. I also simply love fantastical elements, no matter the genre – I think it makes everything glow. As for theatre, I often make my characters very flamboyant.

What advice would you give young aspiring artists?

Don’t stop doing what you love. It may sound cheesy and cliché, but even if it leads nowhere, financially speaking, it can brighten your day. At the worst times for me, emotionally, art was a breath of fresh air. And don’t get discouraged, hard as it is – we all start somewhere.

ASEXUALITY

Where on the spectrum do you identify?

I’m a sex-repulsed asexual! This might be TMI, but I usually have no problem with sex with my partner as long as I’m not the one being touched. However, I dislike NSFW art, writing, and talking about sex regularly.

Have you encountered any kind of ace prejudice or ignorance in your field?  If so, how do you handle it?

It’s hard in music and theatre, because you mostly play others’ works, and that’s usually very detached from my asexual identity. In writing…yes, definitely. Romance novels, especially, tend to have a very, very literal climax; an upwards progression to a definite sex scene the reader is looking for. There is very little asexual inclusion in literature, so often times there is a definite ignorance. Whenever I write romance, I feel almost pressured to include a sex scene, which I’m not very comfortable with. Especially in the fanfiction and fandom community, so sex-focused and ship-centered, being asexual or aromantic isn’t popular, and you’re accused of being “ill” or discriminatory.

I usually deal with it by blocking and ignoring people whose arguments are watered down prejudice and insults, and trying to educate and speak with those who are more confused. And, in the end, the gratitude of aces who read my work is always more than worth it.

What’s the most common misconception about asexuality that you’ve encountered?

The plant dilemma (and, let me tell you, as a biochem student this is hilarious, since most plants are sexual). The misconception that celibacy and asexuality are the same thing, or that no ace people ever want to have sex/masturbate/have a libido.

What advice would you give to any asexual individuals out there who might be struggling with their orientation?

Find aces, especially older ones. In my experience, having that support is always the best thing you can get. Get into ace forums, surround yourself with positivity, and don’t be too hard on yourself on whether you are or not asexual. Orientation takes time to figure out.

Finally, where can people find out more about your work?

My Tumblr and Twitter are usually the place!

Name: Ika
Age: 18
Country: Philippines

Hello! I’m searching for a snail mail pal that I can be artsy and whiney with. (I would disclose my real name once you contact me.)

I’m 18, in my 3rd year studying Landscape Architecture. I know English and Tagalog, and I’m currently studying Japanese through duolingo. I love nosleep and tumblr; I rant in twitter. I’ve watched hundreds of movies and series, and I like to watch some more. I suck at making my own art, so I take photographs of other people’s artworks instead through digital and film. I also like thrift shopping and looking for indie shops!~

Okay, so I’m looking for a penpal around my age or older, so that I could get my mind off of things, and get these things out of my mind. A guy penpal would be cool, since most of my friends are female. College is really really stressful, and I’d like to deal with, and know, things that are halfway (even ¼ would suffice) across the globe. I also love the idea of sending a hand/typewritten letter, along with stickers and pressed flowers and pictures and random notes found along hallways.
I’m looking for someone to talk to regularly who’s not included in my social circle (which I see physically almost everyday.)

It would be really nice to gain insight of your culture and life. I promise that I might take a bit of a time to reply but would definitely not ghost, that I would send countless pictures of my cute dog, and that I’m not a killer searching for my next victim.

Preferences: 18-25 years old. I prefer starting with email/tumblr, then move to snail mail. :)

…And, by the way, you had no question.”

You see this is not just a simple like of Fizzy’s.

Fizzy liking it:

.

It is hard to imagine a more peaceful, loving moment than Harry and Louis spooning together. The tattoos themselves make it unmistakable. This is not lyrics that can be misinterpreted, or this is not something that is “again made about Larry”. That is 2 boys unmistakaby sleeping together. This is Harry Styles and Louis Tomlinson in a non bro-pal position.

This is 2 boys finding their peace at the end of the day amidst the waves that constantly have been trying to break them. Two boys not listening to people saying they shouldn’t be together. This is 2 boys thinking about the promises made to each other and thinking of the days the future holds. Their future together. After 4 years. 16-18; 20-23. Nothing has changed. Their love only got deeper. They make each other strong. Holding onto each other. This like is much better than any manip.

.

This one holds a promise that nothing can come between Harry and Louis.

Thank you Fizzy!

Harry and Louis are camp counsellors. They hate each other. The amount of sex they have in the camp showers probably contradicts that.

Masterlist - Mobile Masterlist

Working at BigHit records was a lot of things, but boring was not one of them. It didn’t matter how crazy or hectic my schedule as an intern got. There was always somethIng that made me laugh and remember why I wanted to be here and why I had chosen to do this job.

Today, It was Park Jimin from BTS.

Part of my job as an intern for BIgHIt was keeping track of idols backstage at performances and t.v appearances. Or in other words, babysitting. So here I was in the green room with BTS watching Jimin and J-hope go back and forth dancing to American pop music, looking ridiculous and they did so.

I laughed as Jimin did his version of the whip, messing up and smacking a chair with his hand.

“Aish!” Jimin yelled, shaking his hand violently before continuing his dance as the song changed to Toxic by Britney Spears.

Hobi and Jimin both stopped, gave each other a mischievous look, and then slowly creeped up behind Namjoon, who had his back turned to us.

As the chorus began to play both of them started to dance around him in a way that could only be described as ‘bad stripper’ dancing.

I had to cover my mouth to keep from laughing too loud as Jungkook sat down next to me, an amused look on his face as he watched his hyung’s torment Namjoon.

“Yah! Can you two knock it off?” Namjoon teasingly yelled at the boys before pushing through them and going to sit down in a chair in the corner, his phone in front of his face trying to hide his smile.

That was the thing with Hobi and Jimin, you couldn’t help but laugh at them when they were beIng silly. Even Yoongi, the most laidback and serious of the group, often found himself laughing at them after he got done being annoyed with them.

“Y/n! It’s your turn! Come dance!” Hoseok held his hand out to me, his body still moving around as he got closer to the couch I was perched on.

“Nuh-uh! Not this time!” I shook my head at him and looked to Jungkook for support. Since the two of us were the same age we tended to get along pretty well. Except for in this moment.

As I went to scoot back Jungkook put his hand on my back and pushed me forward.

“Come on don’t be a wet blanket! Have some fun with us!” Jimin added as he grabbed my hand, pullIng me into him on accident.

“Sorry!” We both yelled as I pulled back from him slightly, a blush creepIng up my neck and to my face.

“Ah! Jimin-hyung is blushing!” Jungkook yelled loudly, causIng almost everyone to look up at him, Including me. Which I regretted almost immedIately.   

I hadn’t stopped to think how close our faces were to one another. Inches. I could feel his breath on my face as I looked up at him, Jimin being more than a few Inches taller than me. From this angle though I could see that he was, in fact, blushing. Just as much as I was.

After what felt like hours but in reality had only been seconds we both looked away, him backing up and laughing. Trying to shake off the awkward tension.

“Y/n-shiii! Can you come help wIth me this?” It was Taehyung’s voice that finally broke the awkwardness, and I was thankful for It.

I turned around to see what he needed, but not before glancing back at Jimin to see him still blushing.

“Show me.” I saId as I reached Tae, reaching out for his phone to see that he was stuck on a level of the game he was playing. I couldn’t help the laugh that came out of my mouth. He didn’t need my help, he was just trying to make things less tense and awkward.

“I can’t fIgure out what to do next y/n, and you’re smarter than me.” He sighed as I looked at the screen. Clearly he knew that that was not true.

“You have to do this.” I sat down next to him and showed him what to do before handing him his phone back. I watched as he finished the level and smIled up at me. I smIled back, letting him know I was thankful for him saving me.

We spent the next hour or so handing his phone back and forth, each of us taking turns playing the game while the others ate, got changed, and goofed around some more. I tried to not pay too much attention to Jimin though, even though it was hard to do. Jimin had the type of personality that you couldn’t help beIng drawn to. The second he walked into the room he was already doing something or saying something that drew your attention to him. So ignoring him was hard on a normal day. But after our close encounter it became harder.

I had never thought about any of the boys in a romantic way before. Not that they weren’t my type or anything, because they were all cute and nice. But this was work. My job. And I didn’t  want anything to get in the way of that.

And clearly I wasn’t the only one stealing glances. I had caught Jimin several times looking at me when I looked over at him. But the second our eyes met he would look away, and then look back again. It was almost like a game of chicken. Who would look away first? Me. I always looked away first.

Not because I didn’t like him, because clearly I did or I wouldn’t be so nervous right now. It was because I knew I wasn’t his type. Not for a long shot. Jimin liked girls who were outgoing and fun. LIke he was. And I wasn’t any of those things. I was shy and quiet and timid. I had always been that way. I would bore him to death if we ever did date, which was out of the question! Obviously!

But there he was, looking at me again. HIs face was blank but his eyes were shining like little stars and I have to stop this is so ridiculous! He was just looking at me It didn’t mean anything. It couldn’t.

Just then I saw Namjoon stand up from the corner of my eye and everyone turned to look at him.

“Alright, time to go guys.” His voice held authority as he spoke. Even though he wasn’t the oldest, he was their leader in every sense of the word. They respected him, listened to him. Even the rowdiest of them stopped goofing around when it was time to work. This included Jimin.

I peeked at him from the corner of my eye and watched as he stood up, stretched, and then smiled at me. He had caught me staring, and this time I didn’t look away. Clearly there was something going on here whether I wanted to admIt it or not. And I didn’t, because it scared me. A lot. But I still didn’t look away.

I watched as he walked across the small room, and then out the door. I had just stood up and was about to start cleaning up some of the mess that was around the room when hIs head popped back in and he scanned the room for something and stopping when his eyes landed on me.

I froze as he smIled at me and said “I’ll be right back y/n.” And then he was gone agaIn.

What the heck? He had never done that before, so why did he do it just now? Had I Imagined that he saId it to me?

I quickly looked around the room to see if anyone else had seen It, but they were all busy doing other things. It had to have been to me, but I didn’t know why.

I tried to make the time pass quickly by doing random things. Throwing away trash, straightening pIllows, busy work. Only it wasn’t working. Instead it was just making me more aware of how slowly the time was passing.

I looked up at the clock to see that it had only been about five minutes. That gave me about ten more minutes before they finished their interview and performance. Which was way too long for me to sit still.

As I stood there watching the hands on the clock tick I decided I couldn’t just stand here. I would go crazy. With one more look around the room to make sure there wasn’t anything else to do I gestured to their manager to let him know I was goIng to step out for a minute before walking out into the hallway.

Immediately I was hit by the cool air and took In a deep breath, and started walking. I needed to clear my head before I saw Jimin again or I would do something dumb. Really really dumb. And I didn’t want him to think I was weird or crazy or something. Because I wasn’t. I was just boring.

So I wandered around, making sure to keep track of the different signs I passed so that I would be able to find my way back when it was time to go. And I made a point not to look at any of the clocks around me. I didn’t need to be reminded of how slow time seemed to be moving.

As I turned a corner and was met a dead end, I decided that I should head back. I didn’t know how long I had been walking around for but it felt like it had been a while.

With another deep breath, I turned around, only to smack into someone’s chest.

“I’m so sorry! I wasn’t paying attention!” The words flew from my mouth and then stopped all at once as I looked up. It was Jimin.

He had a somewhat surprised look on his face that was quickly replaced with a smile. It lit up his whole face and sent butterflies erupting in my stomach.

“That’s the second time you’ve fallen into my chest. You must really like me y/n-shI.” He chuckled and I could feel his body shake with it.

“Um, no. I mean, yes I lIke you but not lIke-” I was rushing my words and trying to figure out what to say when he cut me off leaning down, and kissing my cheek.

This stunned me to say the least. I completely froze as he looked down on me, a small smile on his face and his eyes scanning my face. I made myself take a small step back, suddenly feeling very claustrophobic in the small space we were in.

Had he really just done that? Park Jimin just kissed me. And all I could do was stare back at him with a dumb look on my face that was probably as red as the paint on the walls around us.

“What was that for?” I half whispered half mumbled, scared that if I saId it any louder my voice would crack.

“I wanted to do it. That’s what it was for. Because I like you y/n.” He gave me one of his crooked smiles before reaching out and grabbing my hand, interlacing our fingers together in between our bodies.

“Why me? I’m not your type at all Jimin.” I backed away again, but stopped when he tugged my hand slIghtly. “I’m awkward and shy and boring and you’re none of those things so I don’t know why-”

“You’re not boring y/n. At all. You’re sweet and kind and funny In your own way,” He ran his thumb along the back of my hand before continuing “like when you make faces at foods you don’t like or when you cross your eyes when someone says something dumb. I like those things about you.”

How had he noticed all of that? I didn’t even notice when I was doing those things half of the time. Had he been watching me when I wasn’t looking?

“Yeah, but those are boring things Jimin. Lots of people do them, not just me.” I finally looked up at him and was shocked to see him shaking his head at me.

“Not the way you do them. When you do it, it’s different. And I kind of want to be the one around you when you do them. Like all the time.” He gave me a shy smile, something I had only seen when I caught him staring at me. And then it clicked.

He had been staring at me. All of the time. That’s how he had noticed all those small things about me, I had just never realized it till right now.

“You’d be bored around me though Jimin.” I sighed, hoping he would gIve up but also hoping that he wouldn’t. Because the way he looked at me made me feel like maybe I wasn’t boring.

“I’m never bored around you y/n. If anything I have more fun when I know you are around and watching me. Because I know that you do watch me.” He winked at me as he said the last part, making me laugh. My hand coming up to cover my mouth but he caught it with his free hand.

“But you have to stop doing that. I like It when I make you laugh, it makes me really happy.” He smiled again and then was leaning in.

It took my brain a second to realize what he was doing, and then it was too late to back up as his lips met mine softly. Gently parting as he kissed me. It was quick and over far too soon but not too soon for me to notice that his lips were the softest thing I had ever felt in my life as he pulled away. That shy smile on his face again.

This time I didn’t cover up my smile, followed by a small laugh. Mostly because he was still l holding both of my hands in his, but also because I couldn’t help it. I had fought so hard to make sure this kind of thing didn’t happen for so long. And for what? I couldn’t even remember why. Because right now, I let myself want it. I let myself Imagine what it would be like to have this happen more than once. To happen lots of times. And it made me smile. Really smile at him.

“See! Your smile is so cute I love it!” Jimin laughed a big laugh, making hIs eyes close slightly while he pulled me in closer and dropped my hands. Then he wrapped his arms around me and hugged me tight. So tight it was kind of hard to breath but I didn’t mind it one bit. So I wrapped my arms around him as well, enjoying the way his muscles felt under my hands and how he smelled of his cologne and slightly like sweat and 100% like Jimin.

“Jimin-hyung! Where are you? It’s time to go home!” Both of us looked up at each other at the sound of Jungkook’s voIce. “Jimin!” He yelled again and we pulled apart, but he didn’t let go. Instead he slid his hand down my arm to find mine again. Interlacing our fingers together and pulling me behind him out into the hallway,

“Coming Kookie!” Jimin called and Jungkook looked at both of us, his gaze taking it’s time as it landed on our interlocked hands and then going wide. A smile spread across his face as we got closer.

“It’s about time Jimin-” Jungkook started to say something but Jimin poked him in the face, cutting him off.

“Didn’t you say it was time to go?” Jimin poked him again and then looked at me, giving me a wink and squeezing my hand in his.

I smiled at him, knowing what he was doing and feeling glad that he had done it. Maybe I was boring, but maybe that was okay. Because Jimin could be fun for both of us.

Been a slow year for me, especially art-wise. I noticed I did mostly studies this year, most of which I didn’t bother including and almost half of the ones in this are wips. However, I was glad to have had at least one piece to post per month : 3 on to 2017!! Happy New Year everyone!!!

On a scale of one to You’re A Moron, Gus, how bad an idea is it for me to sign up for NaNoWriMo in order to finish my priest AU fic?

From the photographs you take, what sort of inspiration do you take from it and how do you implement it into other things?

There’s so much beauty in the natural world and an abundance of inspiration to be taken from it. Personally, this inspiration fuels my other creative endeavours which almost always include an element of the places I explore - from field recordings in sound works to sculptures ‘growing’ out of tree stumps.

  • Keep your askbox open! I will most likely contact you through the instant messenger and then the ask box as a back up. (I will not be using Fanmail because of repeated malfunctions) 
  • You will have 48hrs to respond before I pick another winner. So make sure to set an alarm now (hopefully the drama will be your major notification that time is up)

****Important notes:

  1. I will be shipping internationally with no fee to you
  2. The link to view the poster options may not work on mobile view
  3. The winner will be chosen by a random number generator
  4. If OCN releases more Local Hero Promo Posters I am willing to add those to the prize options
  5. The finished posters will be semi gloss and unfolded
  6. The exact closing time for this giveaway will be January 24th 12:00 am KST (Jan 23rd 9:00 am CST) -The reason I’m going by KST is because of the air date for the show

Finally, I’m so very grateful to each and every one of my followers for thinking this blog was worth following. It started out as a small side blog that I made in order to fill the gap in my Soo Hyuk fangirl heart. Now it has truly become a lot more to me, thanks to the amazing people I have met in these past several months and the support I gain each day from all of you, my followersBut if you have any other questions feel free to message me and my ask box is always open! Good luck to you all~*Giant huggs*

A very long Vacation Week 1

So remember that vacation I took? Well, I made a longer version, which include almost every detail that happen that week. This was a request from kbnello - I hope you like it.

Take a look, there was lots of stuff I have forgotten, like Diana calling Maks a Pussycat.

These take a very long time to cut and code, so I’ll post one and one as I get them done.
