My simple GIF answer to this Doctor Who Official Twitter image of Clara telling the Doctor she’s got a hobby and it’s naturally him. The I-have-a-duty-of-care Time Lord strikes again, and we all love him for it. ♥
Get you a better camera for Christmas?! Girl no camera could ever capture all that beauty and awesomeness in a single image. Speaking of photographs though, idk why you changed your default to the face of some Disney princess. Pretty sure they'd get upset about copyright or something. Just looking out for ya 😋
Chava is a golem, a creature made of clay, brought to life by a disgraced rabbi who dabbles in dark Kabbalistic magic. When her master who commissioned her dies at sea on the voyage from Poland, she is unmoored and adrift as the ship arrives in New York in 1899. Ahmad is a djinni, a being of fire, born in the ancient Syrian desert. Trapped in an old copper flask by a Bedouin wizard centuries ago, he is released accidentally by a tinsmith in a Lower Manhattan shop. Though he is no longer imprisoned, Ahmad is not entirely free – an unbreakable band of iron binds him to the physical world.
Unlikely friends whose tenuous attachment challenges their opposing natures – until the night a terrifying incident drives them back into their separate worlds. But a powerful threat will soon bring Chava and Ahmad together again, challenging their existence and forcing them to make a fateful choice. (Source: Goodreads)
“All of us are lonely at some point or another, no matter how any people surround us. And then, we meet someone who seems to understand. She smiles, and for a moment the loneliness disappears.”
This is one of the most beautiful books I’ve ever read. It is a unique fantasy book that is very difficult to forget and it will always have a special place in my heart.
The story takes place during a time when people were trying to make their dreams come true by travelling to New York at the end of the 19th century.
The two main characters represent in a way two immigrants who are trying to deal with being alone, building a new life in this new world and learning the ways of humans.
These two characters are quite special, a golem and a djinni, one coming from clay and another from a magical lamp. This fact along with their magical backstory imbued such a fairytale aspect to the novel. However their perfect characterisation in the novel gave them such humanly qualities that they read like actual people rather than supernatural beings.
The setting is beautiful. It focuses on life in New York City, where ethnic based communities still congregated together and continued to share the same values and customs despite being in a new country.
The author provided such in-depth detail about the Jewish and Syrian communities that made the story even more authentic. It was also refreshing to read about these different communities, their values and customs, a topic I don’t usually meet in other books.
The first half of the book was quite slow-paced but not in a boring way. It introduced a multitude of characters with each new chapter that I admit sometimes was confusing, however as the story progressed they all converged together until one eventually learns how everyone is connected.
I was constantly asking myself if certain details were necessary about secondary characters until the author shut me up…believe me when I say that even the most obscure characters, say an ice-cream seller, has a important role to the story. The beautiful way in which everyone becomes connected is honestly breath-taking and one of the things that I enjoyed most in this book.
This book is more character-driven than anything else and not really action packed. This allowed for more complex characters and for the reader to connect with them on a very personal level. I especially adored both the Golem and the Djinni, their powers, their faults and their wonderful relationship. They’re my perfect OTP!!!!
The writing is so beautiful and stunning. It transported me back in 19th century New York and made my reading experience a thousand times more magical and real.
There is going to be a sequel for this book called The Iron Season. While I’m a bit apprehensive (second book syndrome and all that) I would love to reunite with my favourite characters and see how their story will progress.
A perfect fantasy book, with complex characters, beautiful writing and a wonderful historical setting. Definitely a must read!!
*neal who dies* lol okay bye who even is that? "emma's true love aka killian dies* bitches we are dedicating an entire arc to saving him and bringing him back because she can't live without him. she doesn't want to.
Hi I read this fic and it was a model fic but I can't find it in the tag and it was that Phil works in a coffee shop and Dan was a professional photographer and saw Phil and asked him if he wanted to work in his model agency. Dans old boyfriend who died looked exactly like Phil and somebody pointed it out at this massive model thing and Dan ran off crying aaa this is a terrible description sorry
Picture Perfect - Dan is a professional photographer and Phil is his muse. Unfortunately, Dan is forbidden to have a relationship with his models. However, when tension builds and builds, rules are broken, lines are crossed, and careers are put on the line. Phan. Fluff, smut, angst.
I’m going to call this right now and say this is probably gonna be a NSFW post so cover your eyes kiddies.
This was not a question I was expecting ever since I don’t think I do? Not compared to those seasoned professionals out there (coughs at Cherry) and tbh I’m not entirely sure how to answer this?? I’ll try my best but this is how I look at it. It might be different with other people but IDK OK. HERE’S AN ANSWER FOR HOW I WRITE SMUT.
Writing (good??) smut is… you’re not just trying to describe the physical stuff that’s happening. It can take one or two sentences for a penis to get in a butt, but that’s not what makes the smut good. Yes, you need the physical descriptions, yeah you gotta say that the person is suckin’ on a titty or somethin’, but sex/smut is like… 10-15% physical and 85-90% mental - emotional even.
What is the person feeling, where is their head at, how does that effect where their body moves and trembles, are they happy? Are they sad? Are they confused? Is this their first time feeling this way with someone? Is this different from what they’re used to? Is it boring? Do they hate it? Have they been waiting for this for hours? Days? Weeks? Years?
Then they finally get there with that person that they have loved/lusted after and suddenly you’re spending paragraphs describing how their lips feel because holy shit they’ve been waiting for so long to get to this moment and they’re so turned on because they never thought in a million years this person would ever return the feelings and their skin is on fire and you’re suddenly hyper aware of every small movement they make and just before their lips meet they can smell the light hint of cigarettes they had earlier that day and wowowow were their eyes always this blue—
Or is this just a quicky in an alley, they’ve had a tough few days/weeks/months and just need to let off some steam and someone is just easy enough to fuck them? Is this a hate fuck and their taking their aggression out on each other and it’s rough animalistic where they let their minds go blank because they’re just letting their bodies do what they want? Do they care about how the other person feels? Or are they being selfish?– see?
Then writing the smutty stuff gets easy.
That’s why what leads up to the actual smut - “foreplay” if you will - is so important? Which is why I can’t really do PWP because it’s the connection (or lack of) that you can draw on to enhance the smut and you don’t really get that with just random PWP threads. Then it just becomes a repeat of “heavy breathing, holding hands as he thrusts, blah blah blah” and while it might get your naughty bits to tingle a little, it’s like sad masturbation.
You’ll get there, but you won’t be happy about it.
Anyway…. IDK IF THIS HELPED AT ALL. I FEEL LIKE IM RAMBLING
Being a monster is a matter of what you do, not whether you ~feel bad~ about it. Do you think the mecha we killed thought, in their final moments, "Oh well, he's just doing his job! No hard feelings!"? I hate to break it to you, but the mecha who weren't monsters died a long time ago.
Well- then, in that case, we shouldn’t be going around calling bots monsters when we’re also monsters.
