why are you reading all these tags

Unpopular Book Opinions Tag

Thanks @bookcub​ for tagging me!

  1. Popular book you disliked: The Perks of Being A Wallflower - it was not at all what I expected it to be, and I just didn’t like it. 
  2. Book that everyone dislikes that you love: The Stranger by Albert Camus. I can see why a lot of people don’t like it - I mean, let’s be real, Meursault is a little jerk - but I personally really enjoyed it. 
  3. Central ship you dislike: Harry and Ginny. Just no. 
  4. Popular genre you don’t usually read: I barely touch YA contemporary. It just isn’t my thing.
  5. Beloved character you hate: The Darkling. He is not enigmatic or attractive or alluring. He is royally messed up and… just nope. 
  6. Popular author you can’t get into: Cassandra Clare. I’ve read a grand total of one of her books, and that was enough for me. 
  7. Popular trope you are tired of: The “you’re not like other girls” trope. That trope needs to die. No more special snowflakes. 
  8. Popular book or series you have no interest in: The Millenium series. I picked up the first book and couldn’t get past the first page. Plus, it just really doesn’t sound like something I’m that interested in. 
  9. Movie/TV show is better than the book: Oliver Twist. The book was a drag, while the movie cut straight to the interesting parts. 

I’m sort of too lazy to tag anyone, and I don’t even know who’s done this or not since I was tagged so long ago, so if anyone wants to do this, just tag me in your response so I can see all your unpopular opinions. 

2017 is the year of the hustle

Its time to get that education, make more money, budget and SAVE THAT MONEY, and most importantly look good while doing it

Why Yuzuru’s fans are annoyed at anime posts about Yuzuru as well as other figure skating related tags. 

 1) This time is during competing season, we use these tags to share information, interviews and news about Yuzuru’s condition and the competitions he is going to attend. We have no desire to see tons of anime posts. 

 2) Again, Yuzuru is NOT any anime character. If you care to read about Yuzuru’s personality and his career, you will understand that there is nothing familiar with the anime at all. I have written a post a while ago about this matter:

http://chibura.tumblr.com/post/152493168820/please-do-not-identify-yuuri-katsuki-with-yuzuru

Despite his looks, Yuzuru is aggressive, very confident with great competitive nerves and never gives up. Yuzuru has survived huge pressure that his whole nation put on him, the crazy criticism and expectation that whole figure skating world keep throwing at him. Yuzuru is very tough. He is not your “cute kitten-like character” who startles at everything, lacks self-confidence or stays in slump for a long time, sorry he is NOT. 

 3) All the skaters some anime fans mention as “I ship them with Yuzuru” like Plushenko, Javier Fernandez, Yulia Lipnitkaya, Shoma Uno…“ they have their own relationships in real life. For the record Plushenko has had 2 wives and 4 kids. Javier has had girlfriends and his own family to worry about. Yulia has a boyfriend, and she is a sweet girl in real life she does not shout at people rudely. Recently she is having a lot of difficulties and it is so painful to watch, I don’t even want to see anything connected her to anime at all. So it would be more respectful and sensible for anime fans to stay away from skaters if they have no interest in their skating at all.

4) If you think it is cool for anime characters to stumble against the incidents that happened to Yuzuru such as his asthma, his stomach surgery, his injuries or the crazy collision at Cup of China 2014 or worse, the 2011 Tohoku earthquake that killed around 16,000 people and so on, then either you are ignorant or you are an ass. Many tragedies and hardships happened to Yuzuru and they’re real. They did not just affect Yuzuru badly, they made his fans cry and they affected many people. They are not fictional materials. It is ok if they never understand how important Yuzuru is to his fans. Just stay away from the tag is not that hard, isn’t it? 

5) Posts like “Oh look Yuzuru’s program fit Eros music so much!” irritate me. Unlike video editing, the real life choreography is designed to sync in with the music skaters choose in a very complex process. Yuzuru’s very sensitive to music, he even pays attention to how his knee moves to fit the rhythm of each music notes. You have no idea how difficult it is for skaters to get a good competitive programs. It is very expensive to get programs from top choreographers, sometimes it might cost up to 10,000 USD. And even after that, skaters still have to invest a lot of time with their coaches and specialists to polish the programs. 

In short, Yuzuru’s performances do not fit the anime’s music at all, period. Of course, no one stops fans from making fanvids of Yuzuru, it is fan-made productions after all. I just want to say, it is not easy as when you sit before the video editing program.

Voltron fic recs, the sequel

[PART ONE]

I’m struggling to get any personal art drawn this evening so I thought why not shower you with fic recs instead? 

As with any rec list, please pay attention to the tags and warnings <3

Entangled - 48K (WIP); klance; When Keith found himself mentally linked to Lance of all people he certainly never imagined that it would be a useful asset in team Voltron’s fight against the Galra Empire. Now if he can just keep his feelings in check, they might actually have a chance at defeating Zarkon.

Not That Bad - 68K; klance; Lance, flirty barista extraordinare, accidentally gives Keith a cup with his phone number on it and promptly freaks out. Things escalate from there. Or, a college AU featuring coffee shops, silly rivalries, motorcycles, arcade games, friendships, and lots of warm, fluffy feelings.

thread our way through a string of stars - 23K; klance; Lance, a humble astrophysics student, finds a strange guy sitting in his customary research spot. A strange guy looking for aliens, no less.  Lance isn’t going to stand for this.

‘Shiro and Keith’s Kickass Fighting Techniques’ by Lance Sanchez - 12K; klance; Lance starts with one role model and ends up with two, a myriad of confusing emotions, and a notebook filled with condemning evidence which Hunk must never see.

pepsicola - 10K; klance - It starts like this: Lance looking up at the scoreboard only a few days into his Garrison training and muttering to himself, “What the hell kind of a name is Keith?” Or, Keith and Lance fall in love. Eventually.

tropical drink melting in your hand; we’ll be falling in love - 12K; klance; Keith just wanted a summer job to help pay for college. He didn’t expect to be coworkers with a complete asshole who hated his guts. He didn’t expect to fall for him, either.

Dewey Despicable - 4K; klance; “To the toddler who left coffee stains all over the ancient myth books…” Lance spills coffee over some books in the library and finds an angry note when he returns to the scene of the crime. He can’t resist responding.

Ereri/Riren Fanfiction Rec List (Updated!)

This is a huge list. Like wow. This took a while.  Anyway, these are all really amazing fanfics, and y’all should check them out.  As you may be able to tell, once I find an author I like, I tend to read everything they wrote. Also, I know that a lot of these are present on other rec lists, but that’s because they’re just that awesome so I had to include them. I know that lots of these are available on both AO3 and FFN, but I just linked them to whichever site I read it on first. This list will be updated as I find new fics, cause there are just so many wonderful fics and authors for this pairing.
