yes it is about time we had a tag

equineporcupine  asked:

No way we forgot about you! But I'm excited that you're back and are opening up for prompts. How about some Shallura? Maybe something cute, like a college au? I love Shallura fluff, these two deserve the world. I appreciate it, and welcome back! ❤

yes, yes, yes - a thousand times yes for college au shallura + fluff

She had lost track of how many times the words before her blurred and twisted, finally fuzzing out to a jumbled mess with notes in the margins - a sea of blue ink and yellow highlighter streaks. Allura took a deep breath, shifting in her seat to prop her elbow on the table to rest her chin on.

In a vain hope it would stop her from nodding forward so often. She worked a little too hard to readjust her vision to make sense of the papers in front of her. It was why she had escaped to the library to begin with; there was more than plenty of light with the force of a thousand suns to keep her awake as they buzzed in the back ground and if that didn’t keep her alert then, the unforgiving wood of chairs at least 20 years old would definitely pick up the slack from the irritating electrical system that couldn’t ever completely be drowned out, no matter what end of campus she was on.

Even outside, it persisted in her ears.

The wind had been picking up lately and the birds seemed awfully chipper for January when the weather was anywhere above dreary, so it luckily hadn’t been as noticeable. If not, Lance’s music was normally loud enough for her to hear crystal clear across their picnic table while Hunk and Pidge chattered on happily in the background about an engineering formula or course or Shiro and Keith talking about dinner plans, which usually ended in calling it a pizza night with all of them crammed into Keith and Shiro’s little two bedroom apartment…

“Hey.”

Allura jumped when a hand carefully brushed over the crook of her arm. She blinked, the lights horrific all over again for her eyes. She blearily glanced up to her left side. “What?”

“You were falling asleep again.”

“Was I?”, She worked around a yawn.

“Yes, you were.” Shiro mimicked her accent, chuckling when she knocked her shoulder into his. “C’mon, you have a Lit. hall full of Americans to blow out of the water with your paper, remember?”

She scoffed, dropping her pen to stretch in her seat. “I seem to recall you being one of those American’s in my Literature course, Shiro.”

“Exactly.” He grinned, and she was almost irritated how he could be so cheery camped out in the library with her at how ever many hours after her bedtime usually was. “Can’t let me win without a fight, there’s not any fun in that.”

This time, it was her turn to laugh, giving him a disbelieving smirk. “Is that a challenge, Takashi?”

“Oh, we’re on the first name thing again?” She leaned forward to knock his arm off of the table, narrowly missing when he sat back at the last second.“You only do that when you’re ‘cross’ about something. And that would most definitely be a challenge.”

Allura tilted her head, raising her eyebrows at him - trying not to laugh when he mirrored the movement - and hunched back over her paper. The playfully frantic, rhythmic scratch of pen on paper synchronized with the arm lightly brushing against hers.

Hello, sunshine! I’m back at it again with yet another attempt at raising money haha but I promise this one will not fall through! I originally planning for this to only be on Twitter but so much more people were interested in them than I intended!! I will be making (yes, making them myself so there will be no issues that we had last time with outsourcing products) Carat Bong Name Tags! They are tags you slip onto your Carat Bong or any other lightsticks you have to use at concerts or fanmeets (or to wave around your bedroom at 4am like I plan on doing)1 for each member so anyone can have one! I will begin making them in about 1-2 weeks so i wanted to have anyone interested fill THIS INTEREST SURVEY so I know about how many I should make for each member! They will end up being $4.50 each but if you order multiples you’ll get a discount! 100% of the profits will go to continuing to support DK& Seventeen!

An Order From Your Commander

Writer: ZOE’S GIRLFRIEND EMAILY OKAY SHE’S A LIFESAVER BECAUSE WE HAD NOTHING

Word Count: 415

AU: Modern where Alex is tiny and is adoped by the Washington’s


It was a warm Saturday in June when Martha suggested that George take Alex to the park. Now, the man cared and was coming to love the little boy they’d adopted from the Caribbean, but he wasn’t quite sure he was ready to take Alexander to the park by himself. The six year old was incredibly headstrong and unafraid to speak his opinions. Nonetheless, despite her husband’s protestations, Martha had the two boys out the door and on their way by ten in the morning.

English Names

I’m going to say my opinions on some of the recent name changes that were announced. I’ve also decided that I’ll update the tag list and tags all at once when the game comes out and we have everyone’s English name. I’m going to go over ALL the names, yes, even the ones that were announced a long time ago like Xander, Hana, etc. I figured it’d be fun to talk about all of them :)

Names that stayed the same: Camilla, Elise, Hinoka, Sakura, Takumi, Oboro, Hinata, Odin, Setsuna, Orochi, Charlotte, Nyx, Mikoto, Felicia, Silas, Garon, Gunter

Names that stayed basically the same but had a tiny change: Ryoma, Kagero, Saizo, Leo, Subaki, Rinkah, Beruka, Effie, Mozu, Azama

Marx → Xander

I personally like the change. I’ve already gotten use to it and plus upon doing some research, Xander means “Defender of the People” which fits very well with his character. I feel like most of us knew Marx was going to get a name change, or at least I had a feeling, so I was expecting worse. I think Xander is a nice name for him and I mean he looks like a Xander. (9/10)

Suzukaze → Kaze

Falls under the ‘Cut off a chunk of my name’ group. This change isn’t really that big of a problem to me. Kaze still means wind so it’s not like the name doesn’t make any sense. It’s fine. (7/10)

Kamui → Corrin

While this won’t impact the blog in anyway since I’m keeping the name Kamui for my avatar (which the blog uses), I’ll still say how I feel about the name. I can’t say I’m upset about it because in the end it’s an optional name and only the default one. However, one of the reasons I liked Kamui’s name was because it meant “Powerful/god-like”. When one looks up what Corrin means, what do they find: Spear-bearer. Corrin’s name means SPEAR-BEARER. Now again it’s the default name so it’s not really a problem, but there wasn’t any other name that was better and gender neutral. “Corrin” doesn’t even weild a spear in their default class! I was really hoping they’d keep the name Kamui, but I guess it could’ve been worse (3/10)

Aqua → Azura

Good change. There are so many blue haired females named Aqua that i was fine with the change to Azura. It’s derived from ‘Azure’ which means blue so it’s still good meaning wise. It sounds pretty and I really like the name a lot actually. Very nice choice in name (10/10)

Kazahana → Hana

Another name that got a whole half chopped off. I actually like the name Hana a lot so really this change made no difference to me. She still seems like a Hana. Now what about meaning? Kazahana translates to mean ‘Snowflake’. I…don’t know why, but alright. Hana means ‘Flower’ or ‘Hope’. Ok this is SAKURA’S retainer. I think it’s really nice having her name mean flower and hope when you’re serving the princess that literally embodies those two things. I think the name change was fine with how it sounds, but is better because of the nice meaning (9/10)

Joker → Jakob

I like Jakob more than Joker. There I said it. I may be biased since I have a boyfriend of the same name (though of course spelled normally), but let me break it down more. Joker of course means ‘jester, upbeat, and merry’. It’s kind’ve ironic since in the Japanese version Joker is anything but that. Maybe that’s what they were going for? Jakob means ‘supplanter’, which if you don’t know what that means it “often refers to governments and rulers of countries” and is also derived from the latin verb which means “to trip up or to overthrow.” Maybe that’s ironic as well since this character is devoted to their lord so they’d never overthrow them? Also he’s an expert butler so he’d never mess up?? I don’t know for sure but I’m much more inclined to the name Jakob over Joker (9/10)

Harold → Arthur

Now Arthur isn’t a BAD name for a character like this. But did it really need to be changed? Harold was such a GOOD name that would’ve made sense still even in the localization. I’m sure a lot of you have realized that the Japanese version name Harold is derived from King Harold II, otherwise known as Harold the Unfortunate. This character is known for his obscenely bad luck so having a name derived from HAROLD THE UNFORTUNATE made perfect sense. Now Arthur is obviously derived from King Arthur and means ‘heroic’. While it still technically fits the character, Harold was such a GOOD name. I wish it ws kept but I also can’t say I hate it ;-; (5/10)

Zero → Niles

Niles I’m a bit meh about cause I really liked Zero, but I’m not really upset with the change. They still could’ve used Zero and no one would’ve noticed as a Nohr name. Zero of course means ‘nothing’ so it was actually a pretty nice choice in terms of character. Niles means ‘champion’ , but also has “Nil” which means “zero/nothing”. If that’s what they were going for then fair enough, but the name itself still means Champion. Unless you’re referring to him being the champion of seducing everyone or having one of the saddest backstories in fire emblem, then yeah you got a winner. (5/20)

Luna → Selena

Great name change. Probably my favorite name change honestly. IT’S SO GOOD! Luna means ‘Moon’. Fair enough ok. It’s pretty and such, but then we have Selena. Selena means “Moon Goddess” and is even prettier in my opinion. Plus for the english translation it sounds like Severa so it makes even more sense as her name. It fits the character, it’s pretty, and all around a wonderful name change. Good job Treehouse on this one! (10/10)

Nishiki → Kaden

Meh. Not my favorite name change. Nishiki’s name meant ‘Brocade’ which is a type a fabric that was silky and considered very fancy. I went along with the theme of having the beast characters have names derived from types of fabric which was cool. Now I’m not sure how Kaden is going to be pronounced here but it’s the English name so likely it’s pronounced KAY - den. However I did see an excellent point brought up in another post that when Kaden is pronounced Japanese phonetically, it sounds like ‘cotton’. I don’t know if that’s how they may pronounce it, but I’ll admit it’s kind’ve clever. I still like Nishiki better in the end. (4/10)

Tsukuyomi → Hayato

Probably the most surprising one to me. I’ll start with meaning. Tsukuyomi is the moon god in Japanese mythology. I don’t really know the correlation between them, or if there even is one, but if someone does know than I’d love to hear. Hayato means ‘Falcon-man’, but before you get confused like I did, it’s also the name of an ancient Japansese clan that was independent from and resisted the empire at the time. This character is from the Wind Tribe so at least it kind’ve correlates there. I do actually kind of like the name Hayato, but due to how recent it is, I still have a preference towards Tsukuyomi. I’m sure I’ll get use to it pretty fast though (7/10)

Yuugiri → Reina

Whyyy…Ok. Reina isn’t a bad name. but dang, YUUGIRI WAS SOOO GOOD! Yuugiri just fit this character in every single way. Yuugiri means “Evening mist” based on the kanji AND was a famous Japanese destroyer vessel. Yuugiri is a very sweet character, but has a love for war and the battlefield. This is me assuming personalities are at least SOMEWHAT similar, so literally Yuugiri was a perfect name in meaning and appearance for her. Reina means a high point or peak. Ok yeah that works cause she’s a Golden kite Warrior and oh look she flies, but YUUGIRI! I just really loved that name… (2/10)

Lazward →  Laslow

*cries* Welp have fun in meme hell Laz! Lazward means “blue” and influences the name Lapis lazuli. This worked well since in the Japanese verision he was called Azure, and in English he was called Inigo, both blue-based names. It was still a strange name, but we all got use to it. But now we got LASLOW. While it still sounds similar to Lazuli, the name itself means “Commander of glory”. That has nothing to do with blue! The name still sounds weird as well, and it’s spawned a lot of funny posts in the fire emblem tag (Camp Lazlo). The memes are probably the best part about this honestly. Or maybe the worse. I don’t know. (5/10)

Pieri → Peri

While not a big change and I could probably have put it at the top of the list with the names that only change slightly, I wanted to talk about this one for the name meanings.  Pieri means “Perish” and that was fine since she was a psycho killer with a love for blood. But what I do like about the name change is what Peri means. After looking it up, Peri is defined as “(in Persian mythology) a mythical superhuman being, originally represented as evil but subsequently as a good or graceful genie or fairy.” That is cool and the reason I like this name change. This character is suppose to be “one of the good guys” (unless you’re playing Birthright). However no one can deny that she has terrible qualities with her love of murdering anyone and everyone. The name reflects this and is my main reason for supporting this simple change (8/10)

Benoit → Benny

I accept the headcanon that Benoit is his full name and he just goes by Benny to sound less intimidating. I like Benny. It’s cute and good for an innocent character like this guy. I love Benoit so much really. He’s a good character. Benny or Benoit are great names really. They both sound great (9/10)

Crimsom → Scarlet

YES. Predicted this one. Great name change as well. It’s very pretty and still has the red origins of Crimson. Can’t really say much other than I’m happy with it. (10/10)

Matoi → Caeldori

I’m not mad because it doesn’t make sense. It does. It’s an anagram of Cordelia. But does CAELDORI sound down right amazing to anyone? I was hoping for Doralice, but I guess we have Caeldori here. I’ll admit that it sounds kind’ve pretty? It’s more of the way I read it and how it’s spelled that throws me off. This one is a major change for the blog so I have to get use it quick (3/10)

Shara → Rhajat

*cries again* I’ll miss then name Shara so much. I know Rhajat is the anagram yeah yeah I get it, but even then, Shara STILL sounds like Tharja. Befoere we knew all the clones were anagrams, I was really really hoping they’d use Shara since it sounds so similar. Oh well… (1/10)

Eponine → Nina

Nina isn’t a bad name. I LOVED Eponine though so I still prefer that. Similar to her dad, I feel like she could’ve kept her name and it would’ve been fine. Nina at least is still derived from Eponine so it’s not bad. I think I’m going to get use to it quickly as I play the game (6/10)

I believe that’s all of them. There you go you guys! Fates releases in just 19 days so I’m really excited and I hope you guys are too ^_^

in this comedy of manners, we play like fools

yes, this is the AU based on this post i made yesterday, for reasons. one-shot. fluff. tagging @peggyyswan, @tobsjpalfrey, and @46andtwo because they asked for it.

Emma Swan had had this job for just about four years now, and she was fairly sure there was nothing more it could do to surprise her. She had stopped being gobsmacked around the time, after just having taught a roomful of household staff that the proper way to store caviar was in a champagne glass (because clearly, a champagne glass) one of them raised their hand and asked what brand of glassware it should be, because if there was a wrong brand and they used it, their employer would be Very Unhappy at this dereliction of duty. Or when she saw sixteen-year-olds who had as many therapists as they did extracurricular activities, pouring into the International Young Achiever program to mingle with their serried peers, so they’d be the better prepared to go straight from Oxbridge to the Fortune 500 board room. The thought of working a starter job at Primark or Caffè Nero was a fate worse than death, and one which these people never had to consider anyway. On the unlikely chance that they couldn’t get one of their daddy’s rich friends to take them on, daddy himself would provide a monthly allowance equal to the deposit on most middle-class homes.

For that matter, Emma had no idea how she’d ended up here. Debrett’s was the oldest and most prestigious etiquette school in London – or at least that was how it had started out. It had now evolved into a full-service boutique firm for the really, obnoxiously, you-are-the-reason-the-economy-sucks stupid rich. From teaching the subtle nuances between white tie and black tie dress codes, how to properly address the Queen when she invited you to the state dinner at Buckingham Palace, to arranging your personal shopping experience in Paris (minimum one day) or Milan (minimum two days), to weddings (you can only imagine how those went) to the events of the Social Season and who would be at each, to dealing with nepotism at the office (really, that would be a problem? Who could have seen that coming?) – she, Emma Swan, had done it all. None of her clients knew she was actually American, as she had perfected her Received Pronunciation, and of course it would never do to have a Yank instructing them in these time-honored rituals of expensive snobbery. Privileged bubble did not begin to describe it.

Thus, Emma had a certain cynical outsider’s perspective on the whole thing. She had not been born into money – quite the opposite, in fact. Didn’t see this job as much different from a long-term acting gig, having gotten hired despite her disgracefully un-pedigreed background by working hard, being willing to put up with their shit as long as it kept the paychecks coming, having a certain Look (here meaning thin, blonde, and pretty) and allowing the bosses to feel as if they were doing a good deed and being demographically diverse, down-to-earth, and relatable to the plight of the common man by employing her. Besides, she was a living success story. If an American ex-foster kid, who had never tasted champagne in her life until her first day on the job when she was supposed to be advising a client which one to buy for her society wedding, could learn how to do this, anyone could.

This, however. This might prove to be her white whale, the final quest to trip her up just before the finish. Sir Brennan Jones was one of the billionaires who turned up in the news for buying a private island or being busted for tax evasion (once more, who could have seen that coming?) or appearing at various red-carpet events with his equally handsome sons (they were a good-looking family, she’d give them that) or writing self-righteous newspaper editorials about how they needed to fix the country, apparently with zero awareness that he and his dipshit oligarch buddies were a big part of the problem with it in the first place. That Brennan Jones. He had just engaged Debrett’s to give his two sons a crash course in being successful rich people, as that was different from just being rich people, so they could follow him into the family business.

And Emma was the lucky, lucky woman chosen for the job.

I was talking to this pretty attractive guy and we agreed to go see a movie (I’m a huge film buff, so if I didn’t like the guy, at least I would get to see Birdman for a second time). The previous Tinder date I’d had at the theater ended in a hot make-out sesh in a McDonald’s parking lot post-McFlurry, so I was pretty pumped. The day of the date, he messaged to make sure I was still down to clown. When I said yes, he asked if his roommate could join us. His roommate?? Either this guy was a dating idiot or I was about to become road kill. Quickly, I lied and said my friend had been wanting to see the movie for awhile and asked if she could come along, too. Thankfully, and because potentially my life was at stake, my friend agreed to tag along.

The meaning of "Honestly, no.”

I’ve been mulling this over in my mind for a while now, been debating on whether to post or not, and then that tweet happened. The “Honestly, no.” tweet. 

It bothered me, too. It was like I was an accidental victim of an Ice Bucket challenge – heart stunned, chest achy and cold. A freakout in the Lizzington tag ensued and some of the comforting “Lizzington is NOT dead” posts have alluded to the point I’m about to make. 

With all signs pointing to yes, here we go.
