yes hello i'm alive sorry for not posting for some time

poetry-protest-pornography  asked:

I brought you an umbrella and/or the key is under the mat, ship of your choice. (Look, I'm enabling in a totally low-key and pre-approved way!)

Some future Sterek for you, with “the key is under the mat”! (I’m trying to make up for yesterday’s angst fest.)

It comes out of the blue, a text from a number Stiles had never been able to make himself delete from his phone, even though that means it’s probably been transferred through four phones now. He stares at the notification, then blinks and looks again. Derek Hale it still says.

“What?” he says to his otherwise empty living room. “Just… what?”

He swipes to open the text itself. It is, of course, both anti-climactic and short: Stiles?

“I don’t know what else I expected,” he mutters, exasperated, but even he can hear it comes out fond.

It’s been five years, for fuck’s sake. Derek should not get fond, dammit. But he does anyway.

Yeah, it’s me. Same bat channel, he texts back. And then he gets tired of the thought of dealing with what little affect Derek ever had being further flattened by the glorious medium that is texting and just fucking calls him. He’s not having his first conversation with Derek Hale in five years punctuated with emoji.

“Hello?” Derek answers, wary as always.

“The phone won’t actually bite you, Derek, I’m sure we’ve been over this before,” Stiles says, letting his grin bleed into his tone of voice.

“Stiles.” And Stiles could swear he hears Derek relax.

“That’s my name, glad we’ve got that reestablished, buddy. Also, you know, glad to know you’re alive.” Oh. That might have had a little… bite at the end. Whoops.

“I’m sorry…” Derek trails off. “I needed… some time. Away.”

Stiles sighs. “I get that. I really do.” Lower, though there’s really no point, Derek will hear him no matter what, “You honestly have no idea how much.”

Derek makes a noise at that, but Stiles doesn’t want to try to parse it right now. He runs a hand over his face, scrubs it back through his hair, and feels a rush of excitement in the center of his chest again as his mood shifts back and he remembers he’s talking to Derek again. For real this time. Not a dream. (He pinches himself just to be sure.) “Just… you know I was worried about you, right? That people cared after you left?”

“People?” Stiles can practically see the raised eyebrow.

“I feel fairly confident in that use of the plural, but yes, I am the important person in that statement, clearly. I cared. And I’m kinda pissed, not gonna lie, that you didn’t say something earlier, but honestly, I’m over it.” He pauses, miraculously stopping the flood of words, but fuck it, who knows when he’ll hear from Derek next, if ever? “It’s just so good to hear your voice again, I’m pretty sure I’d forgive you anything right now, so if you’ve got any big confessions you’ve been holding back, now’s the time. Be honest. Did you ding the Jeep that one time? I know someone did.”

“Stiles. Shut up.” And okay, that’s definitely fond.

Just to be obnoxious, and reveling in how normal it feels, Stiles stays resolutely silent.

Derek huffs in exasperation when he realizes what Stiles is doing. Stiles grins as he imagines the rolling eyes that must go with it. “So I hear you’re up in Washington now,” he says, finally contributing to the conversation.

“I am,” Stiles confirms. “Tiny town. My own tiny house. I work remote. Danny vouched for me.”

“Could… could I come see you?” Derek asks, weirdly hesitant. Stiles is fairly sure he’s never heard Derek sound that way before. Not to him. He doesn’t like it.

“Yeah, dude, of course! Lemme give you some directions…”

“I kind of already have your address. From Cora.”

Stiles stops fiddling with the pen he’d picked up from the desk and narrows his eyes at the perfectly innocent bird on his deck railing out the window. “Of course you do. Still the same old creeper wolf.”

“I’m also actually already most of the way to Mt. Rainier.”

“That certain of your welcome, were you?”




“I gotta run out for supplies, but the key is under the mat.” He hesitates for maybe half a second before adding, “I can’t wait to see you.”

“Me either, Stiles,” Derek says softly, and then hangs up.

Stiles grins down at his phone, grabs his hoodie, and carefully puts his spare key under the mat before he clatters down the stairs.

Hello there! And don’t worry, that’s alright, ahah. And no – I haven’t put my two cents in yet because lately I just have time to stay online a bit only to check the tag and maybe submit something from time to time >< also, I hate ship wars with all my heart and so I tend to avoid any posts that may bring to that. Furthermore, I’m not very rational when it comes to shipping, I just follow my own feelings & sensations and so I can’t really explain it…XD but you took your time to write to me, and so I should give you an answer!

Caution! Personal opinions ahead, be careful!

So, yes, I ship Gafou :) and I’ve always been a…monoshipper I guess (is that even a word) – I mean, if I ship A with B, I just can’t ship A with C, that’s a fact (Wesley from Buffy/AtS is the only exception that comes in my mind right now). Of course, that doesn’t mean that I don’t like Stanfou (and again, don’t take my doodles too seriously, I’m just an idiot who likes to mess things up – and I don’t even mind drawing it, to be frank). I just prefer Gafou, that’s it! As I’ve already said, I’m not very rational and when I saw the “there’s no one as easy to bolster as you” scene (and in Italian it’s even better), it gave me such incredible vibes that I was like “ok, that’s it. I’m doomed. No matter what happens, I’m shipping it”. And that’s exactly what happened XD Of course, there are other reasons as well: I believe the ship had a really good potential (“LeFou, you’re the best!” And much moar) and the chemistry between the actors (and the actors themselves in this case because Le Duo is probably one of the best things that happened to me this year) helped a lot indeed. Even if Stanley and LeFou dancing together was so damn cute, I just couldn’t help myself from thinking about Gaston being alive and ready to start his REDEMPTION ARC. And regarding those people who label it as abusive…well, I really can’t (and don’t want to) change their mind and they have every right to think whatever they want, I just wish they could keep it out from the tag (and the fact that the “anti gafou” tag actually exists makes me sad). Because it’s not about “being open to other’s opinions”, it’s often about people judging/bashing other people over fictional characters and I’ve read “gafou shippers should be burning in hell” so many times that it makes me sick. << As for Gaston, same story; some may defend him, some may not; I personally think that the events of the movie showed his worst side and nobody realized that (or realized too late as for LeFou in the Mob Song), because otherwise I believe that LeFou would have left him before (and they went to war together, so they had to deal with lots of scenarios similar to the attack on the castle I think?? Minus the enchanted objects of course). Ofc, He’s got his flaws (duh), but I strongly believe that he can change and that he deserves his redemption arc. And…I’m lost XD I hope I answered at least one of your questions, I’m sorry but I’m not really good at this and I’m so busy lately that I can’t even think straight in Italian XDD Thank you so much for your kind words anyway! <3

anonymous asked:

Hello! I'm curious, as a writer you have one favorite work? Like you have that one book you've written that places the top? I know that it's supposed to be a progression, but many times people often choose just 1, even if they're not the recent written one. Sorry for the weird question, I just discovered that you also write professionally.

This is actually a really hard question! I mean, I’m the sort of person who can’t tell you what my favourite colour is since it changes day to day, but I’m going to give this a shot… 

I think that it usually comes down to two books. One is Dark Space

Brady Garrett needs to go home. Brady’s a conscripted recruit on Defender Three, one of a network of stations designed to protect the Earth from alien attack. Brady is angry, homesick, and afraid. If he doesn’t get home he’ll lose his family, but there’s no way back except in a body bag.

Cameron Rushton needs a heartbeat. Four years ago Cam was taken by the Faceless — the alien race that almost destroyed Earth. Now he’s back, and when the doctors make a mess of getting him out of stasis, Brady becomes his temporary human pacemaker. Except they’re sharing more than a heartbeat: they’re sharing thoughts, memories, and some very vivid dreams.

Not that Brady’s got time to worry about his growing attraction to another guy, especially the one guy in the universe who can read his mind. It doesn’t mean anything. It’s just biochemistry and electrical impulses. It doesn’t change the truth: Brady’s alone in the universe.

Now the Faceless are coming and there’s nothing anyone can do. You can’t stop your nightmares. Cam says everyone will live, but Cam’s probably a traitor and a liar like the military thinks. But that’s okay. Guys like Brady don’t expect happy endings.

I love Dark Space for one major reason: the narrator, Brady. He’s a very angry bunny with some real self-destructive tendencies, and he was a blast to write. He’s angry with the entire universe, and his circumstances, and he’s also terrified. He makes the wrong decisions all of the time, and it all comes down to the fact that he’s nineteen years old and afraid. (Brady is also secretly Australian, but since this is set in a post-apocalyptic scenario, it doesn’t really come up. But he dreams of red dirt and the cry of curlews.) 

The other book that tops my favourite list is When All the World Sleeps

Daniel Whitlock is terrified of going to sleep. And rightly so: he sleepwalks, with no awareness or memory of his actions. Including burning down Kenny Cooper’s house — with Kenny inside it — after Kenny brutally beat him for being gay. Back in the tiny town of Logan after serving his prison sentence, Daniel isolates himself in a cabin in the woods and chains himself to his bed at night.

Like the rest of Logan, local cop Joe Belman doesn’t believe Daniel’s absurd defense. But when Bel saves Daniel from a retaliatory fire, he discovers that Daniel might not be what everyone thinks: killer, liar, tweaker, freak. Bel agrees to control Daniel at night — for the sake of the other townsfolk. Daniel’s fascinating, but Bel’s not going there.

Yet as he’s drawn further into Daniel’s dark world, Bel finds that he likes being in charge. And submitting to Bel gives Daniel the only peace he’s ever known. But Daniel’s demons won’t leave him alone, and he’ll need Bel’s help to slay them once and for all — assuming Bel is willing to risk everything to stand by him.

I wrote this one with my incredible co-author J.A. Rock. It’s weird and dark and had some very intense BDSM scenes. Because one of the POV characters, Daniel, is sleep-deprived for most of the book, there are some very strange dream-like sequences where he, and the reader, can’t feel the ground under their feet. 

But I only mention those because I tend to skew dark. I can write light and fun though, and for proof I’d like to offer up Adulting 101

The struggle is real.

Nick Stahlnecker is eighteen and not ready to grow up yet. He has a summer job, a case of existential panic, and a hopeless crush on the unattainable Jai Hazenbrook. Except how do you know that your coworker’s unattainable unless you ask to blow him in the porta-potty?

That’s probably not what Dad meant when he said Nick should act more like an adult.

Twenty-five-year-old Jai is back in his hometown of Franklin, Ohio, just long enough to earn the money to get the hell out again. His long-term goal of seeing more of the world is worth the short-term pain of living in his mother’s basement, but only barely.

Meeting Nick doesn’t fit in with Jai’s plans at all, but, as Jai soon learns, you don’t have to travel halfway around the world to have the adventure of a lifetime.

This is not a summer romance. This is a summer friendship-with-benefits. It’s got pizza with disgusting toppings, Netflix and chill, and accidental exhibitionism. That’s all. There are no feelings here. None. Shut up. 

And there’s also the Playing the Fool series, which starts with The Two Gentlemen of Altona. Yes, it’s a terrible play on words. Yes, we went there! 

Mischief, thou art afoot.

Special Agent Ryan “Mac” McGuinness is having a rough week. Not only is he on a new diet, but he’s also been tasked with keeping Henry Page — the world’s most irritating witness — alive. Which is tough when Mac’s a breath away from killing the Shakespeare-quoting, ethically-challenged, egg-obsessed Henry himself. Unless killing isn’t really what Mac wants to do to him.

Con man Henry Page prefers to keep his distance from the law … though he wouldn’t mind getting a little closer to uptight, handsome Agent McGuinness. As the sole witness to a mob hit, Henry’s a valuable asset to the FBI. But he’s got his own agenda, and it doesn’t involve testifying.

When evidence surfaces of a mole in the FBI office, Mac and Henry are forced to go into hiding. Holed up in a fishing cabin, they’re surprised to discover that their feelings run more than skin deep. But as the mob closes in, Henry has to make his escape. And Mac has to decide how far he’s willing to go to keep Henry by his side.

Basically I have the attention span of a goldfish, and I get bored very easily, so I tend not to write the same sort of books every time. I’ve written everything from historical to contemporary, to sweet to what my publisher told me I couldn’t really describe as a “non-con torture mind fuck”. Apparently that’s not a sub-genre. 

So whatever you’re looking for, I hope I’ve got something that will suit your mood. But long story short, Brady will always hold a special place in my heart. Dark Space is the favourite of my solo written books, I think  (Shut up, Adulting 101! Get back in your box!) and When All the World Sleeps is my favourite of my co-written books.

So I'm sorry to bother ya, but you're the only FR blog I know... So I'm planning on joining FR when it opens registration in a few days (I was also thinking of referring you? Seems to be beneficial to both sides? but (idkexactlywhatitdoes), only if you want) and I was wondering what exactly are Flights? Are they mandatory like factions or are they more like guilds? And if you are say a idk uh, lets say Ice flight? for example, does that mean you cant have like a umm Mirror? or plague? dragon?

HELLO! This doesn’t come as a bother at all! Are you ready for some sweet, sweet knowledge? (also I’m going to post this publicly cuz I’m sure you’re not the only one with these excellent questions)

First off, an early WELCOME to dragon hell FLIGHT RISING, one of the most interesting pet sites i’ve ever played. It’s still relatively young and it had a very shaky beginning, but…we’re getting there!

You can refer me if you like! Truthfully, the referrals in this game are kinda weird, I really think they should revamp them. At present, referrals only give me a 1% (WOW) bonus in gems (type of game currency) IF and ONLY IF you purchase gems with IRL currency. ?????????? ?? (but yes go ahead and refer me in case they change it up someday, I like free things)


Flights are FR’s wonderful way of giving the community a sense of…community ??? also it has a lot to do with game mechanics and lore. Each flight has their own banner, their own private flight forums, and their own holiday! The different flights relate to different elements, and determine where in the world your clan will reside, who your clan’s deity is, and most important, what color eyes your hatchlings will have.

After you make your account, you’ll be prompted to join a flight of your choice - there are 11 flights in all!

(Each flight is linked to its wiki - click them to read more!)

Earth Flight (MY FLIGHT BEST FLIGHT) is located in Dragonhome - a dusty, barren cracked region filled with mountains, caves, and gemstones. It’s also the location of The Pillar - a place of great importance in FR lore. Their deity is the Earthshaker, and their eye colors are Brown.

Fire Flight is located in the Ashfall Wastes - a volcanic region filled to the brim with sick ass lava and forges. Their deity is the Flamecaller, and their eye colors are Orange.

Water Flight is located in the Sea of 1000 Currents - a landlocked sea shrouded in mystery beneath its depths. Who knows what’s down there? Their deity is the Tidelord, and their eyes are Blue. 

Wind Flight is located in the Windswept Plateau - hundreds of vibrant grassy plains that are constantly alive with a never ceasing wind. Also, reeds and kites. Their deity is the Windsinger, and their eyes are Yellow-green.

Light Flight is located in the Sunbeam Ruins - cracked stone ruins of a time long passed, always awash in brilliant sunlight with golden trees. Their deity is the Lightweaver, and their eyes are Yellow.

Shadow Flight is located in the Tangled Wood - a dark and twisted forest, where the shadows move and paths change. Cool glowing blue shrooms. Oh, and thorns. Their deity is the Shadowbinder, and their eyes are Purple.

Lightning Flight is located in the Shifting Expanse - a rocky and barren land always alive with electricity and rumbling thunder. Spires reach into the sky, harnessing storms and their power. Their deity is the Stormcatcher, and their eyes are Neon Blue.

Ice Flight is located in the Southern Icefield - a huge cluster of floating glacier-like islands covered in ice and snow. Some areas have trees, while others are endless, frozen crystalline prisons. Their deity is the Icewarden, and their eyes are Pale Blue/White.

Nature Flight is located in the Viridian Labyrinth - a mass of ever-verdant trees, lush flora, and wildlife. The entire place is alive! Their deity is the Gladekeeper, and their eyes are Green.

Plague Flight is located in the Scarred Wasteland - an ever-growing wasteland of mangled flesh and disease. A land of death and decay. Their deity is the Plaguebringer, and their eyes are Red.

Arcane Flight is located in the Starfall Isles - Floating islands off the coast, with green grass and imposing, pink magical crystals. It’s a surreal land, truly unnatural, very fitting for this magical flight. Their deity is the Arcanist, and their eyes are Pink.

What things are affected by my flight choice?

- The eye color of your bred dragon’s offspring
- The private forums you will have access to
- Potentially discounts and extra gathering turns, dependent on if your flight has achieved a level of dominance.
- The banner under your profile picture
- The background of your user profile page and dragon profile page
- The “location” of your clan’s lair

Your flight choice can also determine some meta things, such as lore (you can base your clan strictly off of FR’s lore of each flight, if you want!), the people you’ll interact with (the sense of community between flight members), and enjoying your flight’s special holiday!

What things are NOT affected by my flight choice?

- The breeds of dragons you can have (You can have ANY DRAGONS)
- The colors of my dragons (you can breed/own ANY COLORS)
- The elements of my dragons (dragons adopt the element they were born in, but can live in any clan, regardless of element! Their will still hold their birthplace in their eye color and magical ability, however.)
- Viewing all general forums (only the flight forums are restricted)
- The apparel/skins/genes of your dragons (again, you can do ANYTHING)
- The venue you can gather in (you can choose which region to gather in - you can go to any region, regardless of flight!)
- The elemental holidays - you can celebrate them all! 
- Pretty much everything else not mentioned is not affected by your flight!

Can I change my flight?

Having second thoughts? You can change flights! But be wary - moving an entire clan to a new home and flight is very taxing, and there is a 6 month cooldown between flight changes. Your first move is free, and all changes afterwards will cost 1500 gems. Choose wisely!

I’M GONNA WRAP THIS POST UP CUZ THIS IS JUST WAY TOO MUCH but my all means share this around and help a noob out - I love flights in FR, it’s my favorite mechanic - pretty obvious with all the EARTHNESS, here.

Good luck my fellow hatchlings!

Hello I’m alive and yes I have to because WHAT AN AMAZING LIVE SHOW.

My god, was it just me, or did Dan seem giddy af? He was in such a good mood. Seriously, for a second I almost questioned whether he might be tipsy or something lol. The dimple was nearly on full display that entire hour because of how much he was laughing and smiling. So lovely and nice to watch.

With that came so many gems…..

“Get a house and a dog” “Probably one day, it’s inevitable…I’d like to think.” hahahahahahahahaha ha ha ha h *cries* way to paint the most beautiful picture imaginable, Daniel. I can see it now. Dan. Phil. Dog. House. Koi pond. Garden. Marriage license (but come on, Phil’s right, it’s only just a piece of paper and they’re already married as hell). What more could anyone else want really?

“Phil came up with this one you little shit” My favorite sentence of the whole show.

Dan saying this has been the best year of his life. *wipes tear*

Phil being loud in the background and Dan yelling to him. Also LOVED that he admitted to Phil waiting till the show is over so they can eat together. I mean, we all knew, (gotta love the times when we hear Phil banging around in the kitchen) but it was cute to have him mention it. The idea of Phil getting all restless and trying to make Dan hurry up so they can have dinner is pretty adorable. “The Domestic life of Dan Howell” is right.

He said multiple times how pleased and happy he was that everyone was so supportive of the app. And how scared he was beforehand because he thought the reaction would be negative. That made me a bit sad tbh. That is definitely 100% directly related to the reaction of tabinof and it hurts my heart to think that they might have been any ounce more doubtful of themselves. It would be very difficult to not harbor some insecurities after the reception of the book/tour. Dan already doubts himself quite a lot and it’s just a shame to think that their confidence might have been wounded from that. Especially in regards to something they were/are so proud of. I know people had their reasons and it was a huge shock to many, but I just wish things had been different. That’s all. And his statements today really reminded me of that. But on the positive side, I'm very happy that they were so excited and proud of the way the app was received by everyone this time around. They deserve it.
