why is this thing on my head

Sliding Down the Hill

Emma Swan’s phone rings and she makes a quick, split second decision. She keeps doing that. She makes choice after choice and change after change and, suddenly, she’s crying on ESPN. That’s probably the last thing she expects.

Or: A not-quite a Little League World Series AU.

Rating: G, with lots of sports emotions
Word Count: 10K’ish because I have no control

Also on Ao3 if that’s how you roll. 

AN: This was an exercise in brevity that didn’t really work and probably should be two chapters, but here we are. The Google Doc name of this story was actually “WHY ARE YOU WRITING THIS?!?!” but this got in my head and wouldn’t leave me alone and it’s not really about the Little League World Series, but also is kind of about the Little League World Series and parents on TV. 

It all happens quickly.

One day Emma Swan is barely making ends meet on a tiny apartment in SoHo, constantly worried Henry will notice and, suddenly, two weeks later she’s on the phone with an overly-enthusiastic Mary Margaret screaming about he just retired, Em. just packed up his desk and said he was going to go live by the ocean or something and, whatever, it doesn’t matter, there’s a job!

A job.

In Storybrooke.

In Maine.

Probably with David.

Working with David in a tiny, little town in Maine with the one friend Emma has managed to keep and a cast of characters that belong on some sort of Hallmark Channel mini-series and, she’s fairly positive, only one stop sign. She’s not convinced Storybrooke has a traffic light.

It does, however, have a meticulously cared for Welcome to Storybrooke sign at the town line and Emma bites her lip when she drives by it, the ancient, bright yellow bug she used one of her last paychecks to buy rumbling slightly when she and Henry barrel down Main Street.

does ADHD give you 'brain fog'? like having your head just filled with static or white noise, or feeling like it's "heavy" and being held underwater? because I regularly have a lot of pressure in my head, accompanied with this 'foggy' feeling in it that makes it impossible to concentrate on anything and a friend told me it's a symptom of ADHD. I have no idea why or where it comes from, because it seems to happen regardless of how much sleep I get or whether I eat/drink or not...

The static thing is a yes. And brain fog is definitely a thing with ADHD. It’s one of those things, however, that it’s hard to find reputable advice about. I would personally go through a bunch of these articles over at ADDitude Magazine.


short thing written at breaks during work for @reecekinqs who is an absolute angel and waited patiently for w e e k s for me to get my head in the game. troy bolton would be disappointed in me, but it just can’t be helped. original prompt was “jace thinking simon has a partner and then jace trying to get over him by getting a partner + jealousy?” didn’t completely follow it, but here it is, me shouting into the jimon void. 

fakeout (us, take two) || jace/simon, 2k+ || ao3 link soon

It’s late when Simon gets back, and Jace looks up from his research just in time to see Simon trip over the rug as he walks into Jace’s room in the Institute. He hides his tired grin behind his coffee, taking a sip and frowning when he realizes it’s gone cold and acidic.

“Thought you were going to be back for dinner.” Jace says, leaning back and crossing his arms. Simon shrugs, casting a critical eye over the books spread out across the tiny table Jace commandeered for his room, and a slow smile spreads over his face.

“You - “

Don’t.” Jace warns.

“ - read? I didn’t know you could read.”

“God damn it, Lewis.” Jace crosses his arms and does his best to glare at Simon, which is difficult when Simon’s eyes crinkle like that as he ducks his head and tries to hide how pleased he is with himself. “That joke got old a year ago.”

Devil in Disguise

For @asparklethatisblue whose old background made me think of the song… also my first Nwalin work, woo!

The Art:

“We’re doing Halloween this year!” Nori exclaimed as soon as Dwalin walked through the door of their small apartment.

“…Why?” Dwalin asked, feeling more than a little ambushed as Nori wrapped a tape measure around his head.

“Because Ori wants to make costumes for a project in design school – honestly, does the reason matter?” Nori frowned at this less than enthusiastic response. “It’s Halloween, Dwalin, Halloween!” To Nori’s mind, the best holiday of the year… filled with spooky things, ghosts, witches, spiders and assorted tricks and treats. Eyeing Dwalin’s bulging biceps appreciatively, Nori licked his lips.

Whats WRONG with u Fangirls?! Why you keep making Pitches VNeck so damn LONG?! No want to see that!?!?!?!?!?!?!?11 That is indeccent! You should feel ashamed!

*Strokes chin* Hmmmmm…so by THAT logic, I should just go a head and draw Pitch naked?

But seriously tho, if you’re so upset over a fictional characters V-Neck that doesn’t even reveal anything inappropriate (cause believe me, I could have done just that.) then maybe I dunno, don’t look? (Psst, there is a thing I learned maybe a few months ago, it’s called blacklisting, really works *thumbs up* )

I’m a NSFW/18+ blog and I’m going to be turning 30 years old very soon,
I’m a grown woman and I’m at that point of time in my life where I will draw what I please, however I please and I really just don’t give a damn what other people think.
Like what I draw? Cool.
Don’t like what I draw? Cool.
I don’t expect everyone to like my stuff and you know what?
THAT is okay.
But I”m not going to stop what I enjoy.

-And being ashamed of myself for what I enjoy? Pffft, that’s adorable.
Well, it’s lunch time here for me and I’ve got some lovely green tea steeping that has my name on it.

833. I have began war with my own body part of me wants to get better part of me wants to be able to eat without feeling like I failed at the only thing I'm decent at starving myself is so easy I can just forget about the pain forget about the problems I have it's so easy because it's just drink water don't eat drink water don't eat I'm so focused on not eating that I don't have to think about why my only friends are in my head or why I let this disorder take control all I feel I can just feel numb
lil update

hi! this road trip has been A BLAST!! i’ve gotten to see and do so many amazing things but i am definitely ready to head back home and start my routine there. my running has taken a bit of a back seat and here is why…

i’m going through female athlete triad syndrome (which i have been diagnosed with in the past). it started a few months ago but finally confirmed a few days ago. this is due to increased exercise with not enough calories. so input is not equaling output. as a result, periods stop/become irregular, bone loss continues, weight loss happens, disordered eating habits ensue, fatigue occurs, muscles aches and pains start to take over, and walls are hit with exercise. it’s especially frustrating for me because i have gotten my period at a lower weight and while doing waaaaaaay more exercise but that was then and this is now. the body catches up eventually. so yea, i’m going to be having to take care of this asap before it continues and gets worse. it sucks. i’m frustrated and nervous to make changes etc BUT they need to happen. my body is clearly trying to tell me things and i need to listen and tend to that. so i apologize if i don’t post as much of my personal running posts but when i do run, i’ll be sure to keep y'all updated! it’s not going to be easy by any means but this is all just temporary and i’m excited to come back as an even stronger and healthier runner!!

I had a weird dream and I thought I’d share it here (because why not lol)

So, in it, I was a successful author, but I was also really mad at the way the government currently runs things, and so I entered politics and got elected to a municipal riding, and then just worked my way up until I was competing to be the head of the liberal party (against Trudeau) to be able to run for Prime Minister, and, like… the thing I was worried about the most was my author platform intersecting with my political one… Which is a silly thing to worry about if I’m trying to become PM of Canada, but a very real concern for a lot of ‘everyday’ authors.

If you aren’t sure why, it’s because as an author we’re presenting ourselves in such a way as to appeal to our target audience. Yes, of course, we need to write stories that our audience wants to read, but if we come out and say “I’m super against abortions” or “I am 100% pro-choice” then you’re going to alienate some of your audience.

Sure there will be readers who disagree with your political/personal beliefs and still read your stuff, but there will also be readers who feel they cannot support an author who believes/supports X topic.

And I mean, in some cases, an author makes a conscious decision to alienate those readers (for example, I’m openly in favour of good representation for lgtbq, people of color, and just all around true diversity in media), and that’s fair. That’s a conscious decision.

I just feel like sometimes authors (and other individuals with a public platform) say things without thinking about the consequences. They might think that their stance is just common sense (”of course murder is wrong!”), but there are always going to be people who disagree. And when those people voice their disagreement you see these authors/public persons shocked that there’s backlash, and that it isn’t just taking the form of people saying “I disagree,” but it’s also resulting in boycotts, or trashing of their work, or other things that have a measurable impact on their career/income.

And, inevitably, the person who voiced their opinion complains that people took what they said out of context, or are being unfair, or are too judgmental. And all I can think of is the advice I got at a writing conference…

Everything you say and do online impacts your brand. Your brand is who your audience thinks you are, and if you suddenly say or do something that goes against their mental image of you, they’re going to feel betrayed. A betrayed reader might never read another book you write, or they might take to their own social media and decry the betrayal. So make sure you pick what parts of yourself, your beliefs, and your interests you want to include in your brand, and stick to it. Don’t talk about politics if you normally post cat videos and dessert recipes. And don’t post dessert recipes if you normally talk about politics. It isn’t that you can’t say X thing, it’s that you need to match what you say to your brand

And yeah…just had a weird dream and was thinking about this, so thought I’d share
