will i get in trouble for this post making fun of the fandom

You’re Dumber Than I Thought (Barnes/Rogers x reader)

Request:  Can I request a story where Bucky, Steve, and the reader are all in a poly relationship and the reader and Steve are always doing reckless shit and Bucky is 1000% done because they could both get really hurt and they are doing this for stupid reasons.

Being in a relationship with Bucky Barnes was a challenge to say the least; he had been through more than most people could survive in his lifetime, and the nightmares and mood swings showed that often enough, but that wasn’t what brought you the most difficulty. It was being in a relationship together with Steve Rogers that would give you the most upheaval in your lives together.  Of any two men in the world to love at the same time, these two may have been the craziest choices that you could make.

I normally choose to post Mashima’s artwork here, and nothing more. This blog was not made for any purpose but to share Mashima-senshi’s art, I have had no intentions of speaking out, or spreading any word. However, I was greeted with this in the mailbox and this is not okay

Here are the reasons as to why:
1. Anon hate is never okay. It shows that you are a coward who do not have the guts to speak out with your identity attached, likely because you’re afraid of the repercussions. If you do not have the guts to speak out openly about your apparent disgust, you do not have the right to speak out at all, especially not a blog where his work is being shared and loved. That being said, hate in general is not okay. 

2. If you would like to word your dislike for a well-known artist, kindly structure your distaste clearly. We Do Not Type like this in a normal setting. I assume you were attempting to state your opinion of “Hey, do you know that Hiro Mashima’s drawings are disgusting? I hope someone will fucking kill him one day. He is not a great artist at all in Fairy Tail. Story is horrible!!!” At least, that was my inference, I had a little trouble at the end. 

3. Let’s break down point 2, shall we? Firstly, we do not need to know that you find Hiro Mashima’s drawings disgusting. What are you doing on a blog that does nothing but post Hiro Mashima’s artwork if you find it disgusting? It seems you may have a problem. If you find something disgusting, I suggest that you stay away from it. Perhaps you can try a blacklist function, it is easily found with a quick google search. Going to a blog that posts nothing but something you find disgusting may mean that you have an issue, please see a doctor if it persists, it is not healthy for you to continually visit something that contains things you find disgusting.

4. Secondly, hoping that someone will be killed simply because you dislike their drawings is a very dark thought. It is extremely unhealthy to channel so much hate over drawings that does not belong to you, and can be avoided if you take the steps suggested in point 3. Mashima-sensei has done nothing wrong to you, it is not as though he has threatened your family, or harmed you in any manner; such hate is unwarranted, especially if your only beef is with his drawings. If you phrase this in another manner, it can be taken as a death threat, and you may and can be reported for that. That will get you in a whole lot of trouble, as the police may be involved. 

5. Thirdly, we have established that you find Mashima’s artwork disgusting, and in your opinion, lacking. However, do note that the term ‘great’ is a subjective term. For example, you may think that you’re being oh so very great when you send an anon hate ask like this to a Hiro Mashima artwork blog, but in my personal opinion, I think such an action is quite the opposite of great. On the other hand, I’m sure many others following this blog for his artwork would agree that his artwork is rather great in their opinion. As this is a subjective determination, I will leave this as such.

6. Based on inference, it seems that you were attempting to tell me that his art in Fairy Tail is not great. Please be gently reminded that Fairy Tail belongs to him. He created the manga, and the style, and the art for the characters. Be mindful that the canon appearance, art style, literally everything, belongs to him. You may think that it’s not great artwork, but in Fairy Tail, it’s as canon as it is, which technically makes it the greatest, especially if you’re measuring upon the likeliness of artwork with canon. 

7. If you find that the story is horrible, you may choose to drop Fairy Tail like I know many have done. What is the issue here? I find it hard to understand why you continue to apparently torment yourself with art and story that you do not like and find horrible. Like previously mentioned, Fairy Tail belongs to Hiro Mashima, What he chooses to do with it, and what he ultimately does with it, is his own choice. You have no right to dictate his actions or decisions. If you dislike it so much, please leave the fandom. No one is stopping you.

8. Lastly, I just want to say that I do not advocate hate in any forms. If you dislike something, the smart move is to unfollow, blacklist, and avoid. Going forward to send messages like such to a blog that enjoys what you do not is honestly not the action you should be taking. You take the fun and happiness out of others because you dislike something. One can not expect everyone to like the same thing, and on the same note, one cannot expect everyone to dislike the same thing. You would not like it if I came up to you and said horrible things about the things you like, you would not like it if I came up to you and said that someone you like, and I quote “I wish someone will fucking kill him one day.” Even if you can not enjoy something, you should not take that enjoyment away from others. It is never okay to hope for someone’s death, especially over such a small thing as artwork or manga that would not be detrimental to your life. 

People who come to this blog came here for Hiro Mashima’s artwork. If you do not have that intention, or like them, please just leave. There is no place for your hate here. This is a place for people who enjoy Hiro Mashima’s artwork to unite and connect. 

If any word is spread in this post, let it be this.


anonymous asked:

Hi, Saori! I see you blog a lot about Sterek and I was wondering if you read fanfiction too? If yes, can you rec me some fics to read? If not, can you recommend a blog that you think recs good fics? I find your taste in Larry fics similar to mine and I was hoping you can do the same with Sterek as well. Thank you!

Oh boy, honestly I have no idea what to say, I’m just glad that not everybody’s fed up with my Sterek spams (probably a lot of people are but oh well) :D

First things first, you should check out @theofficialstereklibrary @wheredidhiseyebrowsgo @underappreciatedsterek @acountrygirlsfun @christinesficrecs @eternalsterekrecs and if you like Larry too then @nottooldforthisship recces  awesome stuff all the time, (her sterek fic rec tag is a blessing) (my fic rec page is kind of a mess, but you can find some there too)

As of my recs, I usually don’t do it cuz I’m always anxious I’ll rec something the other doesn’t like, but since you asked so nicely here are some of my faves:

The Undisclosed (109k) - For once the pack doesn’t panic when a new hunter arrives. The gleefully sadistic man has labelled himself a collector of all things rare in the supernatural world and wants one of the rarest creatures; a werefox. Content that the pack is safe, the wolves focus on why their human member is acting so strange, ignoring the fact that Stiles only started once learning who the man wanted…

I’ve read this like, how many times? Way too many to be healthy? Seems accurate. And I’m totally not re-reading it again, nope.

Baking My Way Into Your Heart (179k) - Derek is an uptight college student, all work and no play. His carefully scheduled life is thrown kilter when his regular barista is replaced with someone new.

This fic changed my life tbh.

As Luck Would Have It (I’m already smitten) (188k, WIP) - When Stiles meets his Dom for the first time, it’s nothing like the cutesy, lovey-dovey Subflicks he used to drag Scott to when they were thirteen. There’s no burst of sunshine when they collide, no sudden swell of violins when their eyes meet; only a really big dent in the front of his Jeep and a seriously pissed off Alpha glaring at him from the sidewalk.

When I see the e-mail I shut down and don’t even look up until I finished reading the update. It’s by far the most exciting fic I’ve read, and I read A LOT.

Do Not Go Gentle (108k, WIP) - Derek Hale, Beacon Hills Alpha, is thrown into a dark cell which already contains another captive.   Someone quite young.   Someone who’s clearly been badly treated.  Someone who cannot speak and who has a cruel collar around his neck.Derek is both a Dom and an Alpha.  What do you think he’ll do?

Same with this. Mondays can’t come fast enough. Dark, but worth it for me.

Home (160k, WIP) - January seventh. Seven days since the start of 2015, and seven days since his father’s death.The bastard, he thinks bitterly. The past year Derek Hale had made it blatantly obvious that he hated his scrawny guts, taking every given opportunity to shove him up against a wall, growl threats in his ears and roll his eyes whenever he stepped into the room, muttering some snide comment about how spastic or idiotic he was.So why did he fucking volunteer to take him in?

You can’t even imagine what this fic does to me. It’s everything.

imagineaominesdeltoids  asked:

hiii. just wanted to say that i love your blog, your headcanons in particular. they always give me that itch to sit down and write out what i gotta get down soooooo i decided to drop some in ya ask box lol. can i get some random headcanons on how GOM would be with their female best friend?? hope that's not too general.

THANK YOU SO MUCH i did not know i am a source of writing inspiration /cries/ nope! not too general and i kinda like this idea :) 


  • Originally, many thought Akashi was dating his female best friend because of his gentlemanly qualities - always opening doors for her, giving her his jacket when she’s cold, pulling out chairs, etc. but that’s just what he does for the women in his life.
    • Admires his best friend’s ambition and strength, and he learns a lot from her. 
  • They bond over intellectual topics and deep talks and he treats her as an equal.
    • Headcanon that Akashi is not as traditional as his other male counterparts in the Akashi patriarchy LOL. 
  • She is always his +1 to events until he has a significant other.
  • THEY GIVE EACH OTHER FASHION ADVICE?? Like, sometimes Akashi wears something really weird (like a fur coat) and she’s like “Sei, can you wear something less extra” 
    • He calls her late night to ask her for girl advice lmao
    • Also she’s one of the few people who can calm an angry Akashi down l0l 


  • Acts like his best friend’s slave, complains a lot, rolls his eyes and gives infinite sass but would fall apart without her.
  • He asks her a lot of questions about girls and learns a lot how to care for another human being through her.
    • SIDE NOTE: Aomine is, I believe, less selfish and more human because of Momoi. He realizes he says a lot of harsh, blunt things and softens his edges when he’s around her. 
  • He enjoys going out to eat with her post-game and always revels in his glory, and she kind of sits there, feeding in his confidence LOL.
    • She makes him pay for the food though and just sits there munching as Aomine goes, “did you see my AMAZING block??” 
  • Aomine’s best friend basically keeps him from failing in school and is his number one wingwoman because daiki actually sUCKS at talking to girls, despite his perceived exterior. 
  • He gives her one armed hugs ALL the time and lazily calls her “Baka” 
    • PS: im a huge aomomo shipper so i think aomine gets with his female best friend sooner or later


  • Rants and talks about astrology and philosophy all day every day to them.
    • Cute headcanon: they share astrology memes and exchanges lucky items. 
    • Midorima made her believe, or follow Oha Asa a lot more and find more happiness through spirituality.
  • Sometimes, they go for days or weeks without talking but then Midorima would propose a study session together and they’d sit in silence and study until one breaks the silence and talk about what’s on their minds.
    • She always talks to him about her boy troubles and Midorima just nods, unable to give any damn advice because he is socially incompetent. 
  • She reminds Midorima that he’s too hard on himself and always sends little texts encouraging him to take care of his health, especially when he’s sick.
    • CUTE HEADCANON: they go to medical school together and live together platonically in the same apartment. 
    • they’re close enough to share books, and midorima, being a serious person does not take this lightly. 
  • one night when she’s really upset, midorima drives to her house, picks her up and takes her stargazing as she vents to him and he nods quietly. 


  • Headcanon they are food buddies!! except she’s a pastry chef and enjoys baking and always needs someone to taste the food.
    • Mura is always like, “____-chin, they’re all so good - i can’t tell you which one’s better!!” 
  • Mura gives her creative ideas on what new foods or recipes to come up with and CUTE HEADCANON they become co-business owners to a bakery/sweet shop. 
  • Mura carries her on his back whenever they go traveling because she’s lazy to walk and all she has to do is feed him food to keep him going (he’s like a car!!!) 
    • Mura asks her for girl advice and she just claims that he’s a lost cause but is secretly a great wing woman when he really needs it.  
  • His best friend brAIDS his hair or ties it up for him when it gets super long and in his face because he keeps complaining about it and she’s tired of hearing about it. 


  • Like Akashi, a lot of people thought they were dating but Kise sees her as a little sister.
    • fun headcanon!! she is a photographer friend who started off kise’s modeling career by doing his headshots and simple poses.
      • Kise loves doing all types of photoshoots with her and they always go traveling or on adventures to shoot. 
    • another fun headcanon!! they start a youtube channel together to document all their fun experiences.
  • Very adventurous pair of friends who don’t mind attention - both sUPER sociable. they go to bars together and are the life of the party honestly. 
    • When they’re drunk they sing karaoke pieces together LOL 
  • She teaches Kise how to do natural makeup so when he’s having a bad skin day he can cover it up or like…wing his eyeliner when he wants to sometimes??
    • kise paints her nails for her when they’re bored? 


  • his best friend is his quiet partner-in-crime
    • they’re basically super similar in everything except she gets a lot of people’s attention because she’s cute and adorable and small while kuroko tends to become her shadow (poor kuroko) 
    • she hates milkshakes but she flirts with the workers at maji burger so she can get a free one and gives it to kuroko!! 
  • they trade books and goes on walks with nigou to talk about books
    • headcanon that they are in multiple fandoms but they disagree on who they ship and so they always argue over that LOL 
  • Nigou really likes his best friend (sometimes more than kuroko) and they playfully argue on who nigou likes best. 
  • his best friend always goes to support his games and they both make fun of kagami-kun together like an evil duo 
Fanfiction is an underrated form of literature

Okay, so I get that there are problems with fanfiction. Sometimes they are written poorly, or fetishize groups of people, or are just pornographic. But fanfiction is often far more than that. As someone who reads and writes fanfiction and has to constantly legitimize my hobby to others, I’d like to take a moment to highlight the positives. 

Critical Reading: It’s easy to read published works and absorb the material. We get so used to things just being the way they are because the author said so. I’ve noticed that since I started reading fanfiction, I view literature as something that is not perfect, but is content to be considered and critiqued in depth. When you read fanfiction, you not only learn to read as a writer–mentally correcting poor sentence structure and OOC moments–but you take apart the canon material and find the problems. This is especially noticeable since the release of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child. There were so many comments about how Harry was out of character, even though this is canon, because this is how we’ve taught ourselves to read. We don’t just cry over how our favorite characters have turned out in new content–we explain why they wouldn’t turn out like that. We make cases and discuss them with others in our fandom because we aren’t just bystanders. The stories are dynamic and pliable and nothing is set in stone.

LGBT+ Representation: In today’s society, it’s hard to find well-developed queer characters; most are two-dimensional or peripheral characters. Fanfiction, however, more often than not follows characters who have been reimagined as LGBT+. It allows us to read about characters who were created as people first, not as stereotypes. I often prefer to read fanfiction because I find characters I can relate to. Reading a fanfiction in which the protagonist Ginny Weasley is dealing with the Death Eaters’ invasion of Hogwarts while also wrestling with her feelings for Luna Lovegood is far more fun than “Classic Heterosexual Heroine Crushing on the Dark and Brooding Guy While Gay 1 and 2 Have A Dull Relationship in the Background Mostly Based Around Them Being Gay”, or “These Two Male Characters Act Very In Love But Are Actually Just Really Really Good Friends And Oh Hey Look It’s An Incompatible Female Character for One to Crush On” (Albus Potter and Scorpius Malfoy in Harry Potter and the Cursed Child). It’s sometimes hard to find publishers who will publish content that revolves around LGBT+ characters, but the beautiful thing about fanfiction is that it is self-published with the click of a button. We don’t have to write things that will get approved by editors or publishers. We just write what we relate to, and what makes us happy. This is so freeing for authors who are afraid to write what they relate to because they’re told they won’t ever be published. You can write about a lesbian protagonist, or a transgender one, or a pansexual one, or whatever else your heart sings. And the beautiful thing is that there is a community who will read and give feedback.

Looks at Fiction in a New Way: So often, fanfiction writers are criticized for plagiarizing or being unoriginal. But to most of us, the characters we love aren’t just characters. They’re people who have made us feel love and pain. People who have changed the way we think about the world. So yeah, we’re not creating new characters, but to most of us, it’s like writing historical fiction. We take people we care about and write their story, or alter their story. We breathe new life into side characters and redeem the harshly judged characters with gray areas. People have depth and layers and there’s no way canon tells you everything there is to know about a character. We write between the lines and give pasts and futures to characters stuck in time. Yes, they already exist. But they don’t exist the way we write them.

Keeps the Stories Alive: This is a major point. No matter how much you love a story, there is a point when rereading the same books becomes dull. Writing fanfiction allows us to take the characters we love and place them in new situations with new results. It allows us to fix things and reinterpret things and take things apart entirely. It gives us new material to consider, and new perspectives on canon events. It makes us want to reread our favorite books, because it gives us new lenses to read them through. It gives us an unlimited stay in our favorite worlds and brings novelty to old stories. Fanfiction means our favorite books and characters never have to get old. They are constantly changing and growing as we do. If you read Harry Potter as a kid but have trouble relating as an adult, there are multitudes of post-Hogwarts fics to reenter the world of witchcraft and wizardry. We never have to outgrow our favorite stories, or tire of the same plotlines we memorized ages ago. We write new ones, and that is something so magical and amazing that it’s worth every moment spent searching AO3 or ff.net for a well-written fic. It’s worth the wrinkled noses and snorts we get when people hear we read fanfiction. It’s worth the sleep lost staying up reading fluff or smut or whatever else floats your boat. Because fanfiction is so much more than people think it is. It’s imagination, and reimagination, and helping our favorite stories live on for years to come. And there’s nothing more beautiful than that.

Weekly Voltron Fic Recs #30

Officially no longer a youngster. Get a job and get out of your parents’ basement, “weekly” rec list, for pete’s sake. Get it together.

Rules: You can find past weekly rec lists here, and non-list recs in my general fic rec tag. This is stuff I like, and I have a huge bias toward Lance, hurt/comfort, and general fluff, in that order. Gen unless otherwise noted. Please comment on the fics if you read and enjoy them!

A Lonely Mind by Bandity
Words:  11,292 (WIP ½)
Author’s Summary:  Lance struggles with depression, choosing to hide his problems, he starts down a dangerous road alone.
My Comments: I think I kinda freaked the author by leaving a RIDICULOUSLY long comment on this one. Go read that for my expanded thoughts. But yeah, fave of the list. You remember that post going around not long ago about how healing pods are scary? This fic takes that concept in a FABULOUS direction, and I love it to death.

Starve the Ego, Feed the Soul by Agapostemon
Words: 1,595
Author’s Summary:
“So you want me to spy for you,” Keith observes blandly. “Exactly!” Hunk nods, “Oh, and keep an eye out for food stashes. I wanna know where all my ingredients are going. ”Keith sighs, “Fine, whatever. I’ll spy for you. But only because he’s my brother and I care about him.”
My Comments: Really sweet and heart-achey exploration of Keith and Shiro’s relationship, through the scenario of Shiro hoarding food in his room.

Pizza, Pasta and some comfort by SerenePhenix
Words: 4,405
Author’s Summary: I love taylor_tut’s sickfics to death but the one that really stuck with me was the one about the college AU where Lance appeared on the gang’s doorstep and they all were like “let’s take care of this sick stranger”.I really couldn’t help myself…
Getting Lance to stop before he can collapse Shiro wonders what can be done to help the poor guy.
Besides making sure that his temperature doesn’t go through the roof…
My Comments: Not long ago, I recced “The Pizza One” as my favorite taylor_tut fic, and here’s a nice long sequel! I love it almost as much as everyone in the fic loves Lance.

Food for Thought by WildWolf25
Words: 9,094
Author’s Summary: After a very uncomfortable breakfast his first morning in the Castle of Lions, Ulaz learns that Galra and Earthlings (and Alteans) have some very prominent cultural differences, specifically relating to food. Once they get some misunderstandings cleared up, though, Lance gets a certain idea…
My Comments: Crack alert! This is delightful. Gen, but technically NSFW for…reasons. Just read it, if you’re of age.

Stretch the Day by Stratagem
Words: 886
Author’s Summary: Lance and Hunk hang out with their siblings at a lake and have a nice day where nothing bad happens. Really!
My Comments: I’m actually reccing every fic in this series, Voltron Space Family, this one just happened to come up first in my AO3 history because I read it the most recently. But yeah, you should consume everything. This author is SUPER good at child mannerisms, as well character interaction and feels. There’s a story where Shiro is rescued after the end of Season 2 by a misfit band of space pirates including one Matt Holt, and another where the Galra kidnap Lance and Hunk’s siblings, which is heart-rending. Very, very good stuff. I’ll be following this author with eager anticipation.

Distance by nawsies
Words: 1,381
Author’s Summary: Pidge misses her Mum so much and most of the time she refuses to think about it, Lance is in the right place at the right time and wants to help his friend (he helps).
My Comments: Sweet, achey, homesick Lance and Pidge. Beautiful little fic.

Mermaid Rescue and Rehab Inc. by isabeau25
Words: 1,064
Author’s Summary: Sadly, this isn’t the strangest phone call Pidge has ever gotten from Lance. The mermaid is new though.
My Comments: MERBABY SHIRO RESCUED BY THE GARRISON TRIO. If that doesn’t make you want to read it I don’t know what will. Just go. It’s great.

Voltron Hug Collection by hufflepirate
Words: 12,761
Author’s Summary: 15 microfics, minifics, or oneshots featuring Voltron hugs. These were written based on tumblr prompts (plus 2) and to get me through finals week. Every chapter involves at least one hug, all hugs are platonic, and chapter titles will tell you the people involved and some idea of the plot or prompt, so keep an eye out for those.
My Comments: I’ve been reblogging these fics in their tumblr post form, because they are all amazing, but if you missed any, here they are all handily collected for your convenience! I intend to comment on every single chapter, just haven’t gotten to it yet.

Lionhearted by Pidgeon_Online
Words: 9,539
Author’s Summary: It’s a struggle for everyone. They’re struggling to stay afloat in the sea of stress and anxiety.And Pidge accidentally tipped the boat.or
Pidge gets sick and everyone helps while trying to juggle their own problems.
My Comments: Sick Pidge with bonus angsty Lance and supportive everyone else. A pleasure to read.

One Day at a Time by dem_hips
Words: 2,818
Author’s Summary: Being away from home at school is a little different from being away from home defending the universe, as it turns out.
My Comments: Kind, supportive Garrison Trio. They’re all so very far away from home. Another fic where Pidge and Lance level up their friendship. I love it.

Caught in the Rain by WildWolf25
Words: 3,611
Author’s Summary: “Hi, um, do you need help with your… robot car?”Pidge looked up to find a man looking down in bemusement at them. His black hair was cropped close to his head, shorter at the undercut and only slightly longer on top, save for a white-dyed tuft that fell over his forehead.
“It’s a rendition of the Mars Rover, but ‘robot car’ works too.” Pidge said. “And I’m okay, I just need to dry it off. My teammates are delayed, so I just need somewhere out of the rain to wait for them. Sorry about using your awning.” (While waiting for their robotics club members, Pidge gets caught in the rain and takes refuge in the lobby of an onsen, where they meet Shiro)
My Comments: This is such a warm, gentle, relaxing fic, much like I imagine an onsen visit to be. Love this modern version of Pidge and Shiro, with Lance being a disaster and Hunk being a suspicious mechanic, as it should be.

Heathens by TheCookieMonster77
Words: 8,785
Author’s Summary: “You…"Keith looked completely bewildered and lost at Lance’s outburst and Lance thought that that was probably the worst part of all of this. The heathen didn’t even realize his error.Keith’s face looked startlingly close to a kicked puppy. "What did I do?”“I- You-” Lance let out a muffled shriek shout of irritation. “You,” he growled, jaw clenched and teeth grinding, “just asked for pineapple. On pizza."What. An. Out. Rage.Keith blinked. ”…Yes?“Hunk is an amazing angel (like always) who figured out how to make space pizza. Lance was ready to sing his praises to the universe, but then his teammates have to go ruin everything by insisting on pineapple pizza.Heathens.
My Comments: Very fun and funny fic! I loved everyone’s different reactions.

A (Space) Mother’s Work is Never Done by BajillionKittens
Words: 2,851 (WIP 3/?)
Author’s Summary: A Mother’s Day celebration for the team mom. Six times Coran took care of his kids and one time they returned the favor.
My Comments: SO CUTE. I love the way Coran takes care of all of these children he’s suddenly stuck with. The different scenarios are all very good and fitting, and I’m looking forward to more.

Little Drops of Poison by Saereneth for BossToaster (ChaoticReactions)
Words: 2,607
Author’s Summary: Shiro had been trying to catch up to them, clawing his way through years of separation just to feel like he was part of them once more, but sometimes it was just too much, and he had to excuse himself for a while so he could come to grips with everything he’d missed.
My Comments: @bosstoaster‘s Ten Years On AU bothers me on a very visceral level that I have trouble articulating, but this little exploration in the sandbox is lovely. I love Pidge unable to stick with her original concept and expanding into thing she finds interesting or just pretty, and the way Lance notices Shiro spiraling and subtly grounds him without being flashy is really lovely characterization. Very believable development of both of them, and Shiro is heartbreaking as always, but everyone’s going to take care of him.

Be Water, My Friend by xLoLix
Words: 8,531
Author’s Summary: So there are the quieter moments between missions, between exciting events, between the moments that matter. (The real secret are that those are the moments that matter the most.)Here are some moments between the paladins, starring Lance.Or; I air out some of my general grievances and de-stress from school by writing a fic about my favourite character.
My Comments: Really lovely exploration of Lance and his relationships. I enjoyed it.

Finding Family by squirenonny
Words: 17,214
Author’s Summary: A collection of drabbles that don’t fit neatly into the main Duality plotline. Most can be read independently of the main story, though each entry contains a note on where it fits in the timeline.Written based on prompts from readers.
My Comments: Some mild Klance and Shatt. Every single of one of these is delightful. You should just read everything this author writes. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again.

A sort-of sequel to this

“That character can’t be trans, because ____”

“They have a higher/lower pitched voice!”
Voice pitch doesn’t indicate gender. Some boys/men have higher pitched voices and some women have lower pitched voices, whether or not they’re trans. Trans people, usually adults, can also go through vocal training to make their voices higher/lower. Another thing to consider is that for younger characters, all voices are pretty high pitched. Young boys can often sing soprano in choirs and there’s a reason young cartoon boys are often voiced by teenage girls.

“We’ve seen them shirtless/in a bra!”
Shirtless trans boys: If they are younger, puberty might not have kicked in yet, so they have a flat chest. For older boys who would have gone through/are going through puberty, they could just have small breasts, took/are taking puberty blockers, or are taking T. Any boy who is 18+ may have gotten top surgery.
Trans girls with bras: This mostly applies to teenage/adult characters. They could be wearing a water bra/stuffed a bra/bra with padding. Again, they could also be taking hormones or have had top surgery done.

“They’re too young/too old to be trans!”
You are never the wrong age to realize you’re trans. Young kids can know as soon as they are developed enough to actually think/process things. For older people, they might have not realized what they were feeling was something significant/not just a random thought or that it is okay to be trans until recently. It could also be that they transitioned some time before, maybe when they were young, maybe not. This is a really weak argument.

“The creator said they weren’t trans!”
It really doesn’t matter. If the creator of a show says they’re not trans then they aren’t trans in canon, but that won’t stop us from imagining these characters as trans. Part of being in a fandom is recreating the characters and showing them to others in a new light, that might not be canon, but honestly who cares? A lot of artists and writers can show our favorite characters as trans in a good/cool way while not making that the whole idea of the work. As long as the original traits of the character aren’t lost, it’s fantastic. Getting upset for this reason is like getting upset because someone colored a person’s hair the wrong shade of brown.

“I don’t want my favorite characters to be trans!”
Congrats, you’re transphobic. 
I’d also like to point out that just because you don’t really agree with/can’t see a character being trans doesn’t really make you transphobic. In fact, I even have trouble seeing some characters as trans. But if it makes you cry cis tears/makes you mad to see trans people have fun/don’t like the idea of rubbing our little trans hands all over it, you are transphobic.

Any other bullshit reason
I don’t give a shit, any character can be trans and we don’t need reasoning to think that.

Also take into consideration characters who haven’t realized their trans/haven’t come out yet and don’t present as their actual gender 

It was never about a TV show.

I’ve been in several TV fandoms over the years. Star Trek, Mork and Mindy, Beauty and the Beast, Moonlighting, Doogie Howser, 90210, Dark Angel, Ally McBeal, Doctor Who, House, Lie to Me, Burn Notice, Firefly, Gilmore Girls, The Office, HIMYM, White Collar, Downton Abbey, Sherlock, Outlander, etc.

I’ve always loved watching TV shows with other people and analyzing the story, the characters, the ships, the writing…I get thinky and geek out. I love it. For almost a few decades, I’ve had my husband to do that with.

So, when my husband decided to stop watching OUAT with me after season four, I came here. Why? Because people out there think I’m weird when I talk spec, talk headcanons, multiship, get excited over a fictional wedding, or watch/read spoilers and talk about them. When I’m, y’know…me.

I’ve made some great friends who were simply fellow geeks. Why? Because you let me be me. You tell me it’s not only okay, but it’s awesome. Because you get the obsession, the excitement, the unabashed joy when a show or movie or book or comic series or game or thing is great. You get the disappointment, the sadness, the rage, the upset, the sick feeling in your stomach when something goes down and it means your favorite thing is about to change or go away.

When Star Trek: TNG went to movies and wasn’t my constant…

When my OTP finally got together on Moonlighting and then the writing went to shit…

When they cancelled Dark Angel just as the cops and the transgenics were at a standoff…

I rage quit Ally McBeal when RDJ went to prison and Larry left. That Sting solo is still my fave

FIREFLY. No explanation needed.

FUCKING DOOMSDAY. Pink and yellow papercut was my LOVE on Doctor Who.

(same show): When the Ponds got taken by Manhattan.

House and Cuddy. WTF.

When Matthew died on Downton Abbey, I didn’t watch for a whole season. I was in mourning.

Hydra Cap

And then Once Upon a Time killed Killian a handful of times, and killed Robin, and here we are.

I don’t know if I’ll watch season 7 of OUAT, if it happens. I might not like it. If I don’t, I don’t. I’ll figure things out. I get why Jennifer left, and that’s cool. She and I are the same age. I just made a huge life-change as well. It happens. It doesn’t mean I’m not worried about Emma, or Henry, or Hook, or the Charmings, or Regina, or Storybrooke.

But I’ve been here before, and I’ll be here again, I’m sure. So will you. The only constant is change.

So, I’ve got your back, and you’ve got mine, no matter what show or movie or book comes next.

I’ll get sappy and personal under the cut:

Y’all loved Paladin Danse-Senpai, right?  Then let me show you something.

This is my contribution to the Fallout 4 fandom and I hope you will like it as much as I do @smokeauditore & @bloodymarietv :D

Now everyone get ready for… The “Notice me Sole-Senpai! Squad”

With its number one fanboy… Paladin Danse-Senpai!


Followed by our loyal nanny…Codsworth-Kouhai!

«Even at the worst of times, things aren’t so bad when                                        you’re around, Sole-Senpai.»

A round of applause for… Preston-Kouhai!

                                              «Bark! Bark!»

That girl sure knows how to get herself in trouble… Piper-Kouhai!

«Thanks again for sharing your story, Blue-Senpai. I’ll make sure no one forgets what happened.»

Let’s not forget our favorite detective… Nick-Kouhai! 

  «Well, if it isn’t my favorite former icicle, Sole-Senpai!»

That girl is an ass kicker…Cait-Kouhai!

«I know this must be difficult for you… I… I’m here if you need to talk, Sole-Senpai.» 

An angel who fell from heaven…Curie-Kouhai!

«It is so hard to wrap my head around what I feel for Sole-Senpai. Before, there was only duty. Now, something more.»

He stole many hearts and is kind of a badass… Hancock-Kouhai!

«Come on, Sole-Senpai! Let’s get this freakshow on the road.»

Is he really a synth or is it just another lie? Deacon-Kouhai! 

«This will be our finest hour, Sole-Senpai. Tales shall be told of our fight versus the rad roaches.»

«I know my words aren’t worth nothing but crap to you, but let me give you an advice i should’ve followed myself when I was younger. Killing won’t bring your loved ones back. Killing won’t bring you peace. It is a poison that devours you from the inside until it is too late to be treated.»


Now, I am kinda curious to know what your Sole-Senpai looks like and what’s their own favorite quote. Please feel free to post pictures of your Sole-Senpai and their kouhai! :D 

Use the tag #SoleSenpai if you want to do this ^0^ I swear this is probably one of the best ideas I ever got.

***Every single screenshots in this post are mines except the Danse ones who originally belongs to @smokeauditore and I had a great time at making them more “kawaii”*** (I literally forgot to mention it. I’m sorry >o<)

May I please have some Kotesu and Izumo HCs? NSFW and sfw please!!!

Kotesu and Izumo SFW and NSFW

Originally posted by shinobi-bonds

Kotesu Hagane


• Kotesu is such a flirt it’s hard to even deal with. He’s always finding ways to make you laugh with his relaxed and nonchalant way of telling jokes. He actually snorts a lot when he starts laughing pretty hard and hell, it’s adorable, even when your jokes are terrible or dry as fuck, he laughs. His flirting can also be annoying because he has a hard time turning it off, even around some of your friends, which can be rough – it’s just one of those double edged swords.

• Kotesu is the type that will give you a pet name, which can either be good fun or annoying as hell. The one he chooses regularly in private is ‘Sweet Cheeks,’ because he knows it gets you worked up and huffing a little – as well as wondering why the hell he can’t call you ‘Babe or ‘Hun’, you know something cute. The whole idea of a pet named can get out of control.

• He has a hard time with commitment, and it takes him a little bit of time to state your relationship is exclusive. Even when you started dating, you were pretty certain he was still testing the waters, trying to feel out how serious his affections toward you were. It didn’t take him too long to realize he was slowly falling into place with you and he couldn’t see himself with anyone else.

• It’s funny but Kotesu is prone to talking in his sleep, and it’s always good fun to try and have a conversation with him, or just listening. Your name is always a frequent phrase that just escapes his lips, and it can be hot at time. One time he asked you to take all your clothes off while he was sleeping. One draw back is that he tosses and turns a lot, and you have to worry about a limb flying over and hitting you on accident in the middle of the night.


• Is a little more submissive in bed than you would think – mostly because he gets lazy during sex. He wants you to be the one to take charge, and he like the view of you riding him. Kotesu can’t get enough of thrusting up into you in a fast, manic rhythm, and he doesn’t really know how to slow things down, so he just sticks with a fast and frantic pace.

• Has a vast love for spanking, and anytime you’re not expecting it, he’ll be behind you with a quick smack to the booty. During sex he’s not afraid to give you some nice slaps to the cheeks while he’s sliding into you. The man can’t help but spank you to if you say something slightly dirty.

• He has a crazy little kink he doesn’t just let anyone see or know about, and at first he was even embarrassed to admit it to you. He’s the type that likes to involve a little food on his sex play. On one of the first dates he talked about how much he loved ice cream – and hell, Kotesu wasn’t lying. He finds an excuse, with your permission, to put ice cream on your body and lick it off. The whole idea of tasting something so cold while doing something so fucking hot gets him more than a little worked up.

Izumo Kamizuki


• Izumo is a by the book type of guy, and he will take things very slowly, and it can be frustrating at times. He feels everything has to be done in a proper order and in the proper place. He waited a few dates to even kiss you, solely because he was waiting for the opportune moment. It almost became deterring, waiting so long for him to show his affection.

• He is very open and whenever you ask him a question, no matter how personal or uncomfortable it makes him – he always has an answer. he is also a little on the naive side and it takes a lot to not constantly take advantage of his honest nature.

• There will be a lot of trouble if you and Kotesu don’t get along. He expects you and his best friend of his entire childhood to be able to hold a conversation or at least be able to be in the same room. Izumo doesn’t expect much in a relationship, but not getting along wit his friends is one of the one things that is a major turn off in a relationship.

• Izumo does a lot of sweet things behind the scene, because that’s how he sees love. He’s the guy that will leave little treats out for you after a rough or long day. He constantly is making sure you have enough food and supplies so you don’t have to go shopping on your free time.


• He can’t start anything even remotely sensual without some good mood music. Izumo will usually come up behind you and start kissing your neck slowly to the rhythm of the song, leaving behind soft nips and licks before he will gentle slide your shirt off your shoulders or pull it over you head. And start kissing you back or your chest, with delicate care – all while softly humming the tune to the sexy song playing in the background.

• The whole idea of undressing you is enchanting to him, it’s almost like unwrapping a present. He will really take his time, running his hands over ticklish patches of skin or he’ll brush his fingers against your inner thighs until you can’t take it anymore.

• His a little praise kink he tries not to let on too much about. But he wants to hear you moan, and feel you withering under his touch – and he will frequently ask you 'do you like that babe?’ He wants to hear you say 'yes’ and beg for more. And if you don’t, he’ll change it up just to please you further.

• Post coital tenderness is the way to go with Izumo. He will just melt and shiver all at once if you kiss his back or just rub your lips against the back of his neck. He’s just a big kisser and a very touchy person.


First of all, @joker-x-harley and @mrjandmrshq just want to thank everyone so much for all the love and support that this blog and this week has received. I think we gained 1800 followers or more between JxHweek one and now. That’s amazing! So thank you all so much!

Here are the official dates:

Monday May 22 to Sunday May 28th is the second JokerxHarleyWeek.

Here are the official themes: 

Monday: Therapy Scene

Tuesday: Electroshock Therapy

Wednesday: Highway Scene

Thursday: Chemical Wedding

Friday: Date Night aka Club Scene

Saturday: Helicopter Rescue

Sunday: “Let’s go home” Breakout

Remember that these themes are just to help you, you don’t have to follow them. You can be exact with the theme of the day or you can do something different. 

Do I have to make something everyday?

No. Go at your own speed. We don’t want anyone stressed out about trying to make something everyday of the week. You can participate in one day or all of the days if you want! It doesn’t matter as this is supposed to be fun! So don’t stress yourself out.

What can I do?

ANYTHING YOU WANT! Cosplay, write fanfictions, headcanons, make videos, act, draw art, dance, make gif sets, or if you just want to reblog then just reblog!

To be absolutely sure that we see your creations please also tag @jokerxharleyweek

Another note, during the last JxH week for some reason we had some trouble with seeing ALL of our tags and mentions.

Imagine playing a sassy character on Spn, but being really shy in real life.

Most people would say Jensen was just like his character Dean. Often times the boys would be made fun of because they would do something like their characters. Now you on the other hand you were nothing like your character, you played Sam and Deans little sister Mary, Mary your character was nothing like you at all. Mary was a smooth talking, sassy, snarky person, who never stuttered, and always knew how to talk her way into trouble and then talk her way back out of it. But you on the other hand were as shy as shy could be. Whenever you had to meet a new person you would always be a stuttering mess. Ever since you were around five you would appear at conventions and do panels with Jensen and Jared. When you were twelve you were asked to appear at panel by your self. That panel didn’t end very well you almost had a nervous break down. After that you asked to never have to  appear at a panel by yourself. As long as you had Jensen and Jared or Misha or Mark at a panel with you.

“Hey (Y/N) you ready to go out soon, we have a full crowd.” Jensen said coming up behind you and wrapping his arm around you shoulder.  

Ever since you were two you had been appearing on the show, you’re now fourteen and had been to about a hundred cons. As long as you had some one with you cons weren’t a problem. But no matter how many panels or cons you went to you would always get nervous before a con, you were always scared you would say something wrong, or make a fool of your self.

“Introducing Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles and the one and only (Y/N)!” Rich yelled as he introduced you and the boys. You all walked out on the stage, and talked to Rob and Rich before doing to usual jump while posing, you knew you would probably see pictures of the jump on insta and tumblr the next day.  

The panel was going good you and the  boys joked around while answering questions and only had a couple questions left.  

“Hi this my third time at a con but the first time meeting (Y/N) and I’ve never really seen any videos of (Y/N) so I don’t know a lot about (Y/N) other than what I know of her character on supernatural so I was really thrown when I met you at the photo ops and you were really quite and shy, but I just wanted to say that I love all of you and (Y/N) even though your really shy and you’re not on any social media that I think I speak for most of the fandom, I love you and you’re an amazing actress and I cant wait to see what else you’ll do in your future.” By the end of her speech the crowd was cheering her on.

To say you were speechless was an understatement you had never heard someone that you didn’t know that well say they loved you and that liked you because you were shy.

“well what I think (Y/N) is trying to say is thank you and she really appreciates it.” Jared said trying to help you out. That seemed to break you out of your trance.

“thank you”  you stuttered out. At that moment you realized for years you’ve been scared to make a fool of your self you were scared to talk to much because you were scared people might not like you, and at that moment you realized it was okay if you talked more it was okay if you started to post on social media more, but it was also okay to be shy and not like to talk to much and that was okay not everybody had to be as talkative as Jared or Jensen or even Misha because the fans and everyone you knew loved you because of who you were. Shy little (Y/N).

This used to be on my other blog nat-tastic now im posting all of those fics over onto this blog, 

Kara’s arc S02 - Meta

This season began with Kara trying to understand how Clark does it all: journalism, love & superheroing and I see her character grow in all these directions, that’s what makes the story fun. I now understand why they brought in Superman when this season started. 


Recently I stopped following all news sources except Boomberg & Reuters and that’s because I believe that integrity and a lack of bias is non-negotiable when it comes to journalism. As I grow up, I realise why professional journalists are so judgemental of bloggers and citizen journalists. All this click bait, garbage & fake news impacts the world in an ugly way. The news we consume shapes our world view. The ratings obsessed media is the reason why the most powerful country in the world is being ruled like a monarchy by a clown & it’s scary for all of us.

All the scenes when Kara talks about “being passionate”, not being able to separate opinions from facts & uses Supergirl as a source, it makes me really uncomfortable about the fact that she was offered this job by Cat & she doesn’t act like a professional journalist at all. As Cat says “Any woman worth her salt knows that we have to work twice as hard to get half the credit”. Lena’s citizen journalist advice was pretty horrible coming from someone who understands what non-compete clauses are. I could understand if that came from Mon-El, because he doesn’t even know what a “blob” is. Honestly, I would have just posted a video as Supergirl if I was in that position. 

I hope instead of blindly stanning Kara, this fandom understands the reason behind Snapper’s introduction. He’s the kind of professional journalist that the world needs, someone who is going to help Kara’s character grow professionally into the journalist she wants to be. I’m glad that he challenges her, teaches her what unbiased journalism means and has a no nonsense policy when it comes to integrity. 

Unpopular opinion, but I’m glad she got fired. That’s a setback that Kara needs. I don’t want James to help her get the job back & I don’t want her to give up. I want to see her get her hands dirty, doing research, finding credible sources, writing unbiased pieces independently and earning her job back with solid journalism that makes Snapper proud. That is what will make Kara Danvers, the kind of hero this world needs right now,


When Barry first showed up, he questioned Kara several times about her plan, when she just flew into trouble with hope. Oliver and Kara had friction too. She has that conflict with Mon-El, Jonn & Alex as well at times when they present her with the cynical side of things. We all find these pessimistic moments annoying because we view the story from Kara’s POV but all of that conflict is good, because it’ll help her be the kind of hero who not only has hope and superpowers but a solid plan as well. Which we saw with her and Mxy, when she didn’t approach it with brute force but used the intel she gathered (from Mon-El BTW, but that noob has a long way to go in this department) to trick the trickster with a solid plan. I loved that episode so much and I want more of that. 

The girl has a big heart and is a symbol of hope, but she’s smart and it’s fun to watch her grow into this hero who collects intel, forms a plan, maybe has a few backup plans, can pull off a long con and doesn’t just run into trouble with hope and optimism because she has superpowers. 

I also love it when they have these dilemmas regarding murder & putting people in DEO cells without due process, I would really enjoy watching her develop the code that every superhero has. She’s just starting out so she goes back and forth on a lot of things but the moment of truth will be pretty awesome.


Relationships are a two way street that require understanding, acceptance, empathy and allowing yourself to be vulnerable without prejudice or judgement of your partner’s imperfections. Mon-El might not be great but neither is Kara with her prejudices about Daxam and judgement of his entire personality. It’s fine, there’s nothing wrong with it. It’s their first real relationship and that’s the beauty of first love, it helps us grow from an ‘I’ to someone who is a part of the ‘us’ team without losing individuality or treating the partner as a project. 

Pushing each other to grow in a relationship is just as important as realising that everyone has human(or alien) vices and we love each other because of them, not despite them. The whole notion of searching for ‘the perfect partner’ or running around with a list of traits is very naive, that needs to be outgrown in order to have a healthy relationship. 

That’s why the upcoming angst in the relationship is a confrontation of all the Daxam prejudice and judgement. I don’t think they’ll break up, it might help Kara look past the exterior (Daxamite) and look at him as a real alien. Because at the end of the day, the biggest desire that someone with a rough childhood has, is to be able to open up about everything and be accepted with compassion. I find Mon-El relatable in some ways : the headonism & childhood issues & I can understand his struggle. We try to do our best, push to be better, go to great lengths to make our loved ones proud, but we love nothing more than someone to just tell us that we are lovable just the way we are because all that effort is rooted in the belief that no one could possibly love us unless we change or put in real effort or have something solid to offer. Unearned love is something people with rough childhoods never get and it’s the greatest gift. Personally, I grew a lot more as a person when I had people in my life who just loved me and believed in me, not just the best version of me.

That’s Kara’s arc on the relationship end: Empathy & allowing herself to be vulnerable, which is why her love interest has external characteristics that she has prejudices against.

Right now, realistically speaking, she’s struggling in all three areas but excelling and growing only as Supergirl. The growth as a journalist and a romantic partner is her real struggle that might not be completely resolved this season but it’ll be great to see her beginning to grow. I have my theories on what Mon-El’s arc is going to be, let me know if you want to hear about that or not. 

4x17 “Identity and Change” Ask Round up.

Okay I got A LOT of asks on this so I’m combining here.

Anonymous said: hi! could you do a breakdown of the 17 promo if it’s not too much trouble? thanks!

Anonymous said: do fitz and aida really kiss again next episode? I had to watch the promo with volume off but the shots looked so similar to this weeks kiss that I wasn’t sure if it was a new one or they just randomly showed the kiss this week in the promo again to emphasise the ‘id cross the universe’ thing.

Anonymous said: Sorry to bother you, but what was your overal take on the promo for 4x17? And more specifically about another Fitz/Aida kiss being in it. I’m sure someone has probably all ready asked this question, so I’m sorry to bother you.

Anonymous said: could you do a post breaking down your thoughts on on 4x17 promo?

Anonymous said: Hi! :) What do you think about the promo for next week? I’m so sad about the kiss tbh, they’re trying to kill us

@the-nerdy-stjarna  said:  4x17 Promo questions. When Madame Hydra says “I need to find her and expose anyone who’s helping her.” Do you think she’s referring to Daisy or Jemma. 'Cause the latter would mean she presumably showed Fitz a picture (which may explain the surprises look on his face?) but the former would make more sense seeing Daisy clearly being hunted at HQ (and Aida’s interest in keeping info about Jemma as far away from Fitz as possible). (I’M SO EXCITED!)

Anonymous said: Analysis of the promo??

Okay lets break this puppy down!

Can we find out what it is with Mace and putting bags over people’s heads here?   And nice try Mace, both Jemma and Daisy know exactly where you super secret base is at.  

Mace gets his angel wing shot and is revealed as leader of the Resistance.  AKA nailed it.

He also says, “Welcome to Shield” and confirms the Resistance Shield.  I also love this shot for Coulson’s “What did you get me into look here?” look.  I’m also kind of interested who is standing behind them in standing behind them in the civilian clothes.  Come on Trip!  Or Hunter!

Jemma’s obituary again, though what caught my eye on the frame by frame is look how many Classified Files there are on Jemma….adding fuel to the fire that something is being covered up…and that no she did not die in a lab accident.  She was eliminated…maybe for being ‘contaminated’.  

The voice over talks about finding “Her” and anyone who is helping her.   So Her could be Jemma in which case Daisy, Ward, Shield, and soon Radcliffe will be in their line of sight.  Same goes for Daisy.  Those people are all helping her and in danger.  

And where we really start to have fun….That is not Fitz AIDA Is talking too.  There isn’t enough beard.  So this could be a random minion, Ward (double or even triple agent now), or another returning face…lets say Mr. Bakshi.

Fandom rejoice!   Its our Fitz!  That is actual puppy followed by I know something is up Fitz right there.  And I know the promo can be misleading with how its cut but it looks like he perhaps overhears AIDA talking to her minion.  Especially if part of AIDA’s conversaion is making sure “The Doctor” doesn’t find out who “Her” is.  So this could be a big turning point for Fitz or at the very least, enough for him to start digging on his own.  Where Fitz is going to be in major danger is when he starts to go against AIDA and starts to break free as he is who she needs.  

Going under the thing for length….kiss speculation is under it if that is what you are after.

[Outside the Woolpack with Robert, Aaron, Victoria, and Rebecca]

ROBERT: You do remember your last party don’t you? Rebecca got invited for the Plot and we ended up with a life size Zayn cutout.

AARON: Yeah…right. I also punched you in the face. I’ll try not to do that this time around. That thirty seconds of counseling I had before our holiday really helped me out.

ROBERT: Well that’s reassuring.

AARON: Hey, Vic! We’re having a party at our house that’s totally finished even though we haven’t been here to work on it. It’s on a Thursday so there’s sure to be drama of some kind. What do you say?

VICTORIA: I say Adam’s probably going to be there so…

AARON: *well yeah he’s my best mate even if we haven’t had scenes together in ages face*

ROBERT: *Guilty ‘why do our stories have to mirror each other’s so much and you mentioning Adam makes me remember my own mistake as if I needed reminding’ Face*

VICTORIA: But that’s my problem, not yours, because even though we’re family we don’t talk about the things that really matter like the potential end of my marriage. So…yeah…of course I’ll come.

AARON: *Great glad that worked out face*

ROBERT: *Sorry Vic it’s not like I don’t care I’m just dealing with the potential end of my own marriage but I’m trying to look like nothing’s wrong face*

*Rebecca walks by*

VICTORIA: Plot! Plot! Plot! Hey, what are you doing on Thursday?

AARON: *Vic she doesn’t need to be in all of our scenes face*  #Relatable

I hope this isn't a stupid question, but how did you get your art noticed? I just started to post my art on here and I was just wondering.

Ah, that’s a bit of a complicated answer, actually. (But not a stupid question!)

(Note: This kind of applies mostly to those who fanart, so yeh.)

Let me start by saying that:

 # Of Notes Does Not = Self Worth. 

Because it’s really, really important to remember that you exist and have value as a person outside of the attention of others, especially on this website. That being said, there’s absolutly nothing wrong with wanting appreciation. Everyone deserves appreciation. 

So, let me tell you a little bit about my Tumblr art journey. Way back in 2013 when I first joined, I posted my first art on here and got 5 notes. [ x ] (And my first ‘fanart’ got 5 more notes.) At the time, I had only joined Tumblr so I could talk to my favorite fanfic author at the time, and I hadn’t really settled into the whole Tumblr of it all. I wasn’t really in a fandom, I wasn’t expecting anything, I didn’t know the 5 tag rule, or the ‘no-no’s of Tumblr. What i’ve learned over time, however, is that you’re going to have to be actively paying attention to a lot of different aspects of Tumblr, fandoms, pop culture, current events, memes, movies, etc etc etc. So #1 is going to be:


A lot about posting art on here and aiming for recognition is riding the ‘wave’, so to speak. See a fresh new meme you can throw at your favorite ship? Do it, make them wear pants one way or the other, here come that boy. (Does Derek Hale wear them like a dog, or a person?) New preview for a movie/show that catches your attention? Doodle a scene from it. Did an actor sneeze popcorn out their nose? Draw Batman doing that. Why not? 

The second part of this, though, is knowing what and when to contribute. Sometimes it’s not a good idea to make light of a current event, or reference/draw a problematic celebrity, or support a certain film. So looking into these things first is probably a good idea, because there are people out there who won’t care that you didn’t know that so-and-so did something horrible, they’re here to tear you down and hurt you regardless. (I’m sorry, but this is 100% true, there’s no sugar coating it. Some people are just assholes.) So, while you’re keeping an eye out for something funny or a fun mashup of fandoms, always try to be aware of the less-fun issues that are around too. 

And, if you mess up / did not know / accidently phrase or draw something problematic / etc, IT’S OKAY.  You are not a horrible person. You made a mistake, that does not make you evil, okay? Apologize, remove or fix the thing, and don’t do it again. But please don’t beat yourself up about it, or listen to anyone else beating you up over it. It happened, you’re now aware of the thing, and it won’t happen again. 

Anyway, #2 is: 


I’m going to start off this one with a tiny warning. Watch out for fandom drama. Look out for the people starting fights just to fight, look out for the people pushing their ideas on others with no regard to anyone else at all, look out for the people using your content as a soap box from which they spout their opinions from. I’m not saying everyone in the world of fandoms does these things, but good god there are a lot of them out there who are more than willing to start something if you so much as sneeze in their general direction.

So, if and when you post content/art/etc in, say, your favorite trope, and someone hops onto your post and starts caps-locking about how this trope promotes ‘something they don’t personally like but is not actually a major problematic thing’ and how y’all gonna burn in hell for this art, try to avoid engaging with them. Because they’re honestly not here for a discussion, otherwise they would have probably sent you a private message, sans the caps lock, and requested an opportunity to talk about this. Also, this is a matter of personal likes and dislikes, for which you are not responsible for. 

You do not have to cater to every single person on Tumblr. 

You also don’t have to love every ship, every character, every idea, every story line, every moment of every film, TV, book, magazine, interview, anything. No one has  to broadcast their hate for these things either. If it’s not hurting you or others, you probably don’t need to create content with the express purpose of attacking a different ship/etc. ( If it is hurting others, try the more diplomatic way first, and report their asses to Staff.)

Which leads me to #3: 

CATER TO THE MASSES (But also, like, love yourself) :

I’m not saying sell your soul. (Seriously, please don’t, the Art Institute isn’t worth it.) But a lot, I mean a LOT of what I do is to feed my fans and friends.  (Also, commissions are basically getting paid to feed your friends and fans whatever art goodies they want to pay for, so there’s that too)   A good sum of my time is spent drawing things I have literally no interest in, or have very little knowledge about, or am up to drawing but aren’t 100% invested in. But I still do the thing, because I respect other’s likes, and it appeals to people i’m drawing it for, and I’m always happy to make others happy. (And sometimes I actually grow to like a thing.)

So, draw some stuff that other people would like to see. Are peeps out there begging for an assassin AU? (You bet your hiney they are! I’ve doodled some myself, hoo-boy.) Do some assassiny things. Are people always sighing about the lack of decent back story about so and so? Doodle a little moment from the past. Friend says they just want some Mpreg? (APOCATITS) Feed them, feed them the art. 

But–huge BUT here–do not sacrifice your values and comfort. 

If something bothers you, is out of your comfort zone, is something you have trouble drawing and just don’t want to tackle right now, DO NOT DO THE THING! 

Second but–another huge BUT here–Make art for yourself. 

To quote Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead: 

Guildenstern: “Is that what people want?” 
The Player: “It’s what we do.” 

Create for yourself. Give water and sunlight to that little seedling of an idea in your mind, try and try again to create that moment or look or design. Ignore art requests like a boss, and draw something to feed your own needs. Because you deserve to be pampered and treated to art of your favorite thing just as much. :D This is leading into #4, which is: 


Please do the thing. Please draw to your heart’s content. Please push yourself, expand, experiment, practice, take breaks, draw some more, and some more, and some more. Please don’t give in to self-doubts, frustration, envy, or art blocks. It’s okay to let things go for a while, to step back, to stop working on a drawing that’s just not working. But do not give up forever. I’m saying this for you, personally, but also for the goal that you’ve set before you. To achieve a certain level of appreciation, to get noticed, to be seen, you have to keep creating content. 

So, to sum it up: 

Be kind to yourself and others, pay attention to what’s hip and happening, forgive your mistakes, avoid drama if you can, Feed the Fans, Do as the cat and do what you want, and keep up the good work. 

Do Wonders Never Cease?

I have said this before and I will continue to say it: YOU GUYS AMAZE ME!!

Back in September when I posted my first fic, I never EVER in a million years would have guessed I would be here today, with 1,000 of you wonderful, supportive, amazing followers. Your words of encouragement are what keep me going each and every day!

Before I get to the fun stuff, I want to take the time to thank some of the people that have continually shown their support and encouragement, and most of all love. I know I am going to miss some, so I do apologize in advance.
