you go read the novel

Today, February 28, 2017 marks the 78th anniversary that Kars was defeated by Joseph Joestar; resulting in the last of the pillar men himself to be launched out of earth’s atmosphere, leaving him to float in the vacuum of space for all eternity. Kars has now been floating in space for 28,490 days. That’s 2,461,536,000 seconds or 41,025,600 minutes or 683,760 hours or 4070 weeks of endlessly drifting through the vast nothingness of space. 78 years and still going, never to return ever again(unless you read the novel, but thats non canon so who cares)

Real or Not Real?

Me: What should I write today?

My Brain: Something angsty and full of feels.

So yeah, here we are. This is an angsty one-shot I got inspired to write after playing Episode Prompto and re-reading ‘The Hunger Games’. That scene with Katniss and Peeta before the epilogue jumped out at me, and…yeah.

Angst, feels and a bit of fluff are to be had.

This is set eight years into the ten years of darkness. There are no spoilers on Episode Prompto here as well, save for the dialogue in the trailer.

E/C means “Eye Color”.

You can interpret this as M! or F!S/O…whichever way you like.

EDIT: Wasn’t tagging properly, so I had to do it again.


Real or Not Real?

It was another quiet night in Lestallum. You and Prompto had just come back from another series of daemon hunts, and you both almost immediately crashed onto your shared bed in the Leville, the once grand hotel now serving as a shelter for both refugees and Hunters alike.

“No…”

You stirred from your slumber to hear your boyfriend’s quiet whimpers beside you. You let out a soft yawn before turning around to face him, ready to shake him awake from one of his now-frequent nightmares.

Ever since you and the others rescued him from Zegnautus Keep and returned to Lucis, he just hadn’t been the same. Sure, he still smiled a lot. Yes, he still cracked a lot of jokes and made plenty of pop-culture references almost every time he opened his mouth. It was almost as if his best friend hadn’t been sucked into the Crystal at all. Yet despite the smiles and laughs you offered him during these times, you knew that it was all just a facade.

Then came a phase of white-hot anger. This scared you more than you would care to admit, but Gladio and Ignis reassured you time and again that this was perfectly normal. That this was necessary. The two of you fought a lot in those days, usually over the smallest things like raising your eyebrows at him in the then-rare moments he would sing like he used to. This was remedied through taking up various daemon hunts, their appearance rate during that period lower than it had ever been (or will be).

What were heated gazes at you or his foes turned into blank stares. When the two of you weren’t out fighting daemons or doing your usual couple stuff, he would just look off into the distance, clear sky blue eyes becoming clouded over with mixtures of grief, guilt, and a few other emotions you couldn’t name for the life of you. A hug or kiss from you would usually remedy this, but they stopped working after a while. Especially when they were coupled with mutterings of ‘If only I were stronger’ or ‘Why not me…Why did Noct have to be taken away’.

Now, his grief was translating itself into nightmares.

“Prom…” You whispered tenderly, giving him a light shake. “Wake up, you’re dreaming.”

“No…I’m not…” He mumbled as he began to tremble under your hold. You immediately sat up and shook him a little harder, knowing full well which nightmare he was experiencing this time.

“Prompto, please wake up,” you said a little louder as you heard your voice crack ever so slightly with fear. “You’re dreaming, he can’t hurt you anymore.”

‘Damn it! Why is he so hard to wake up now of all times?!’

“I am not…One of your experiments!” He yelled, now a mess of thrashing limbs as he tried to squirm out of your grip. You immediately tried to pin him under you, concentrating your weight on his arms and legs as you remembered the last time it got this bad.

He woke up to see you crying in the corner, begging him to put down the gun aimed at your head. 

“Prompto! For the love of the damn Astrals, please wake up!” You were sobbing now, your chest tight as you saw his pained expression. It had been eight years now, the both of you grown into much stronger individuals and yet…

He was still so broken.

As your tears dropped onto his face, his eyes immediately snapped open, sky blue meeting E/C.

“Y/N?” He croaked out, voice somewhat hoarse from yelling. “What happened? Why are you crying?”

You felt yourself go weak as you collapsed on top of your lover, sobbing uncontrollably as he held you close.

“You idiot…you scared me,” you managed to choke out. “I thought you’d never wake up!”

“I’m sorry, baby,” he murmured into your hair, stroking it gently. “I’m really sorry.”

The two of you remained like this for what felt like a lifetime before you adjusted yourself so you were lying down beside him once more. He followed suit, turning on his side to face you. You stared at each other in the darkness, neither one speaking for a long time before you decided to break the silence.

“Real or not real,” you said. “Go.”

You had read this in one of Iris’ novels when you had gotten back from a hunt a few weeks ago. She lent the series to you immediately after you poured out your heart to her about being at a loss as to helping Prompto with his nightly terrors. Since then, whenever he would wake from a nightmare, you two would play this little game.

“Okay,” he replied softly. “My name is Prompto Argentum. Real or not real?”

“Real,” you nodded before asking a question of your own. “We’re currently at the Leville in Lestallum. Real or not real?”

“Real,” he said after taking a quick glance around the darkened room. He sucked in a breath before giving you his next question. “My best friend got sucked into the Crystal eight years ago…Real or not real?”

“Real, though I wish it wasn’t,” you sighed, remembering the moment when Ardyn had told the four of you what had become of Noctis. “You are a Lucian, a true Crown citizen through and through. Real or definitely real?” Your words came out a bit more forcefully than intended, causing you to wince.

“N-not…” Prompto began before you shut him up with a kiss. He didn’t reciprocate at first due to the shock, but soon, he was kissing you back with equal force. When you two had pulled away for air, you asked him the question again.

“I said, real or definitely real,” you whispered. “There wasn’t anything with ‘not’ in there.”

“But Y/N…” he spoke before you put up a finger to his lips to silence him.

“No buts,” you said. “Now, please answer my question.”

“Definitely real then,” he chuckled lowly.

“Good answer,” you replied, a smile playing on your lips. “Now, your turn.”

The two of you spent a long time asking each other things, verifying what was reality and what was illusion. At the end of it, it was Prompto’s turn once again.

“You and I said that we will love each other until the day we both die,” he said, his voice full of tenderness. “Real or absolutely real?”

You got misty-eyed for the second time that night as he asked the question, remembering the day the two of you became lovers.

“Real,” you whispered. “Absolutely real…Now and forever.”

Ahsoka - thoughts on the novel

I finished reading @ekjohnston‘s Ahsoka last week and have been slowly gathering together my thoughts on the book, so here you all go …

Originally posted by xi-ca-no

  • One of my favorite things about reading any of the novels is getting inside a character’s head. It never fails to make me love/appreciate them 1000x more, and this one was no exception.
  • This book provides a really good bridge between the wild child we see her as early in The Clone Wars, and her unorthodox but measured approach to missions in Rebels. She’s got a great, logical mind, and only occasionally lets her emotions get the better of her.
  • All the flashback/interlude scenes were brilliant, but Rex and Ahsoka mutually faking each other’s deaths took the cake for me. 😢
  • Ahsoka’s thought processes as she chooses planets to hide on has given me a fascinating new theory answering the “why another desert planet?” question/complaint about The Force Awakens, and I really need to write meta for it. SOMEONE REMIND ME TO DO THIS.
  • I am so, so happy that Bail Organa is able to track Ahsoka down and provide her with both resources and protection relatively soon after the Clone Wars. That man has become my hero more and more. And in doing this, she really saves him as well by allowing him to focus on his front as a politician while she runs the intelligence networks instead.
  • Speaking of Bail … BABY LEIA. Oh gosh, I would have read the book just for those snippets, had I known she’d make an appearance. She’s precocious already as a toddler. And daddy Bail is precious.
  • Bail worrying about Leia possibly having “her father’s gifts” and hoping she’s more like Padme. MY HEART. 😳
  • Having Ahsoka and Leia in the same orbit for ~16 years opens so many potential cans of worms, though.
  • While I’d guess from Bail’s extraordinary ability to keep secrets that he never tells Ahsoka the truth, and that he probably funneled Leia’s latent talents into her diplomacy skills and relief work as quickly as they appeared, it’s hard not to imagine and long for an alternate universe where Ahsoka was allowed to train Leia all that time.
  • Seriously, I want this now so badly. (I mean, I know why it wouldn’t work AT ALL for practical and continuity reasons with the original trilogy, but I still want it, haha. I need an AU stat!)
  • I loved that the book looked more at the problem of protecting Force-sensitive children and that it’s been a mission of Ahsoka’s since the beginning. I really need to rewatch “Future of the Force” now with that in mind. Hedala was precious, and I dearly hope her family is able to keep her safe.
  • Don’t imagine Bail asking Ahsoka questions about the best ways to hide a Force-sensitive child and redirect their abilities after each time she discovers another one and then putting her advice into practice with Leia.
  • Random thought of the day: the idiotic cleaning machine in Ahsoka’s little house on Raada is a roomba, and no one can tell me/make me picture it otherwise.
  • This book continues the long and glorious tradition of girls crushing hard on Ahsoka and her being an awkward, clueless potato. Her confused reaction when Kaedan says “I could kiss you,” and the exchange that happens afterwards is priceless.
  • Honestly, at this point I’m pretty convinced that Ahsoka is simply hapless when it comes to romantic relationships. 1. The one major crush we see her have on Lux Bonteri is a hot mess. 2. She never seems to pick up on the feelings of all the girls who like her. And 3. from what I have seen of The Clone Wars (someday I’ll actually finish it all instead of jumping around), she was oblivious to Anakin and Padme’s relationship, despite years spent working closely with both of them, separately and together.
  • I wanted her to be able to pass Bail’s ‘test’ so much when he referred to toddler Leia as “already a lot like her mother,” but was not at all surprised when Ahsoka didn’t figure it out.
  • (That line! 😭)
  • I can definitely get behind aromantic/possibly asexual Ahsoka.
  • “You certainly have a sense for drama.” Haha, yes, my dear not-padawan, always sass before a fight. Your masters have taught you well. 😂😂😂
  • I love the way that Ahsoka uses her petiteness to her advantage when it comes to fights, tricking her opponent into underestimating her in order to give herself the tactical advantage.
  • The juxtaposition of narrative tension with meditative calm in the moment where she assembles and activates her new lightsabers was perfect.
  • Overall, it was a great read, and will definitely deserve a reread in the future. The writing is solid, and I’d place it on par with Catalyst and Bloodline. 😊

GO FORTH AND READ IT!

  • My husband [after watching Rogue One again]: Did you like it just as much the second time?
  • Me [outloud]: Yeah, it was really good.
  • Me [internally]: Anakin whaT HAVE YOU DONE! How did you fuck everything up so much that I'm sitting here with my blanket sobbing when you come on the screen and oh god you were so beautiful and he was your brother and he loved you and-
  • Me [outloud]: I think I might go read the RotS novel again.

lil-seeds  asked:

yo yo yo dysfunctional entp here. i've been in a weird, non-creative, funk for the past week or so, i believe largely due to some very well ignored and internalized negative feelings. what is the best way for me (or any Ne user really) to get back into the idea-generating, novelty, creative swing? (im a writer working on a second novel so the whole 'tired of a single project' thing isnt helping either) thanks hot hot hottie

(Gif: Claudia, Warehouse 13. ENTP.)

Uh, well first there’s this: i believe largely due to some very well ignored and internalized negative feelings.

Have you dealt with those yet? Because as a Fe, until you get them out of your head and into the world, you cannot move on and the intense internalization of something that NEEDS made public (Fe) is going to cramp your muse. So, expel those feelings. Share them with someone you trust. Shout them into the void. Express them. You will feel better.

As for getting your Ne-dom mojo back – it’s simple.

Ne needs external stimulation to work. It does not exist in a void. Your Ne bounces off objects, ideas, and stories in the external world. This is why you watch a television show – you get ideas. Better ideas than they used. Or you read a book – and you get more ideas. Or you listen to a song – and you get ideas. Or you talk to someone and… you get the idea, right?

Being in a non-creative funk for a Ne-dom means your creativity tank is drained. Why? Not enough external stimulation. Not enough new stuff to bounce off of. Not enough exposure to things related and unrelated to your current writing project. You need new material going in your head. Start reading someone else’s novels. Start up a television show you’ve never seen before on the side. Read someone who is FULL OF IDEAS, who makes YOU full of ideas, someone EXCITED about their ideas.

Here’s some personal writing advice from a fellow Ne-dom, who quite often experiences temporary creative slumps (since I pretty much work on a novel and/or writing project anywhere from 1 to 8 hours daily, about 10 months out of the year… yeah, I don’t “do” hobbies and I don’t “do” idle time… and it kind of sucks).

If you hit a creative slump, you have two choices:

- Take it back to where your creativity was flowing, and take the plot in a new direction (write a different ending to that scene, or cause something unexpected to happen that you did not see coming)

- Change the setting of the scene (it’s quite possible the setting is boring you; whenever that happens, I go, “What will my reader NOT expect? Okay, the last interrogation scene took place inside a dim cell in the Tower of London. What if THIS TIME Henry VII decides to interrogate someone above the Tower’s lion pit, and dangle him over the side?”)

Here is something vital to remember, as a Ne-dom: you figure it out too far in advance, you’ll get bored with your own ideas.

Every time I have lain out an entire book from start to finish, and drawn up lists of what happens in what chapter, the creative spark dies. I have now started keeping an abstract concept in my mind (this is vaguely where it’s headed / what the climax will be, and what I should introduce next) and then leaving myself questions when I stop writing for the day, to trigger ideas for the next day.

So instead of writing: Heledd meets Alfred on the road and they discuss X, I ask, What does Heledd see that makes her suspicious? How should I introduce doubt into Meg’s mind? What should happen with the ring I introduced in the last chapter? How can I make the big reveal more dramatic?

Leave lots and lots of room for improvisation, too. When I sat down to write the other night, I knew I had to take my heroine through her fears up a road lined with her enemies – people who months before had tried to hang her. So, I knew I had to deal with PTSD trauma. What I did NOT know is that superstition would surround a myth of faerie lights to accuse her brother of murder (the murder, I had planned) and that other people would turn up in support of her, and sing an old Welsh tale to calm her down. But that was nice.

Ne’s delight in the unexpected, in allowing ideas to flourish and spring forth with just enough forewarning to lace together into the rest of the story; you must leave room in your novels for this to happen.

(Gif: Jo March, Little Women. ENFP. My soul sister.)

I’ll be honest here, in the hope it’ll inspire you. I started in on a sequel right after finishing my last book. I was excited about it, I wrote about 20 thousand words, and then I had to stop and do some line editing on the original novel. When I went back to my sequel, my creative spark had DIED. I was distraught; where had all my excitement, enthusiasm, and ideas gone?? So I put that draft in a folder, and tried another. It went on for about 15 thousand words just fine, and then it DIED. More distress. More staring at a blank page. More clueless pondering. More angst. So I delved into it from yet ANOTHER angle. I changed all the POV’s. I tied it back into London in addition to Wales. I invented an entirely new subplot. I wrote about 20 thousand words.

And it DIED. I lost the spark.

I spent one day utterly frustrated, near tears, anxious that maybe I’ll never be able to write another book (low Si paranoia :P) … and I opened up my original draft, the one with 20 thousand words, and skim read the first four chapters… and then sat down and carried the story forward. I’ve kept bits and pieces from each draft, and a lot of that writing can go in this book; but my forward momentum is back. The original idea WAS INDEED the best, or at least, the one my Ne is most passionate about – but it had to explore other options first, before it could settle down to tell THIS story.

Okay, the last bit of advice – you can take it or leave it.

Many high Ne’s benefit from working on multiple projects at once. You should consider, yes, working on your book; and writing a short story or a fan fiction on the side in a totally different genre, to keep your mind active.

I, however, have never been able to do this without losing focus – so I am a “one project at a time” kind of girl, to the extent where if I have an amazing idea for a different book or character in the middle of working on THIS one, I write it down on a slip of paper, stick it in a jar, and forbid my mind from thinking about it further, in order to remain focused.

Finally, write yourself a quick deadline. Given the amount of time you have to spend on this novel, and what else you have to do which might detract from it, and how fast you can write, figure out a rough estimate of how long it will take you to write this book. I spent two years on the last one and it literally almost killed me and drove my family insane (though, technically, since it went through about 14 drafts / rewrites / completely changed focus 4 times, and started out as a novel covering 20 years, went to a novel covering a decade, and wound up being a novel covering 6 months… I was working on more than one novel). This is NOT GOOD for a Ne-dom. We like to see PROGRESS. We like to see a point in our future when we are FREE to pursue OTHER THINGS. So, give yourself six months to write a rough draft. Or four months. Something doable, that keeps you motivated, because:

When I get done with this, I can write something else!

You are verbose. You are creative. You are ideas-driven. And if you’re a Ne-dom, you can turn out an incredible amount of words in a very short time.

You can do this.

Hope that helps,

- ENFP Mod (who tomorrow goes back to writing her sequel, because she did NOT write fiction today and was so bored she could hardly stand it)

Terezi Week Day 5: 4U

oh boi ive been planning to do this since janeweek! :D

Imagine this AU as crime novel trilogy, the Terezi part is legal thriller. She’s involved in tangled web of mysterious case of Gamzee Makara. All evidences points ot that Makara is the perpetrator of recent serial murder that happened in Alternia City; but something doesn’t feel right. The whole case feels like mismatching puzzle pieces that stuck together with a glue. A glue called lies. Can Terezi prove her client’s innocence and unravel the truth? Is the possibility of ‘real culprit’ exists?

and you bet my ass that there will be obligatory romantic tension between Ms. Pyrope and the opposing Detective Crocker.

BSD Novel: Dazai Osamu and the Dark Era (Chapter 4, Part 1)

Apologies for the delay on this. The week’s been really busy for me, so updates on these might be slower than I’d expected, but I wanted to get this chapter rolling first. Chapter 4 is slightly longer than the rest, so I’ll be estimating around 11 or 12 parts for this chapter.

Let me just take this moment to warn you for violence and general pain and suffering for the entire chapter, just in case you weren’t already aware what you were getting into. Without further ado.

Please thank @nakaharachuyaa @mlntyoonqi @bananasaurr!! Best proofreaders I could ask for.

Hi, I just want to ask for a headcon with Ratchet, Rung, Forth Maximus, Nightbeat, and Hotshot (If you now the Armada series) being my date for valentines day? I normally don't hate valentines day but this year is just being so rough. So having something nerdy like this might cheer me up more and make me feel not so alone or love. You don't have to do this I just thought I ask. Thank you, I love you little headcon you do on this blog, it a really wonderful blog. >///<

Happy Valentine’s Day! I hope things start looking up, anon!

MTMTE

Ratchet

  • He knows what Valentine’s Day is from his time on earth.
  • Most of the day he’s busy, but he planned around his schedule for a date that evening.
  • When you return to your habsuite that night it’s all fancied up with lights and crystal decorations (not healing crystals, those aren’t a thing…)
  • He gives you a finely crafted heart-shaped box Ten helped him make. Inside there are your favorite earth candies. Yea, he has contacts. He might’ve pulled a few strings. 
  • He spends all night showering you in affection. He’s very passionate ;)

Rung

  • He found out about Valentine’s Day while doing research on earth culture.
  • With the help of Ultra Magnus, he figures out how to make sweets for you.
  • Totally writes you the mushiest-gushiest love letter. He wraps it up with the sweets and meets you on the observation deck for your date.
  • Ten helped you with Rung’s present. It’s a model ship of the Lost Light. Rung is absolutely overjoyed. 
  • You spend the first part of the date putting together the ship and talking about how much you love each other, but Rung keeps pausing to kiss you. 

Fort Max

  • Didn’t know about Valentine’s Day and freaked when you handed him a home-made card. Even when you tell him it’s okay, you wanted to surprise him, he’s still feels bad.
  • You suggest doing something together and it turns into an awkward game of “I dunno, what do you wanna do?”
  • You end up going to Swerve’s but there’s nothing there for you to drink. Max looks like he might implode. 
  • He tells you to wait and runs up to Swerve. When he comes back he’s blushy.
  • Not a minute later a love song starts playing. It just so happens to be your favorite. Fort Max is a blushing, smiley mess as he wishes you a happy Valentine’s Day and asks you to dance.
  • You have to stand on the table and you’re kind of just holding his servo, but it’s still nice.
  • Expect lots of lovin’ that night :)

Nightbeat

  • Valentine’s Day? What’s that? Was he supposed to get you something? No? Then what do you do?
  • He does some quick research and buries you in useless facts about St. Valentine and pestilence and hearts mushed together. This Valentine’s Day thing is making less and less sense to the both of you.
  • He does want to take you on a date, though. Of course, Swerve’s doesn’t serve human drinks so you grab some from your habsuite. You enjoy some highgrade and wine in his habsuite.
  • You end up “borrowing” some of Rung’s datapads and going through all the romance novels he has. You read the lovey-doviest parts out loud to each other. 
  • It actually ends up getting awkward quick because turns out Rung is into some… pretty risque stuff.

i disagree. people are free to watch a show for whatever reason they want to watch it for, being it a ship, an actor, a character or whatev! and no one can dictate what fans should or should not watch a show for. derek fans are NOT wrong for watching tw for their fave character, stiles fans are NOT wrong for watching tw for their fave character and sterek or *insert ship* shippers are NOT wrong for watching tw for ther favorite dynamic. you can't force people into liking someone or something

No.  You can’t force or dictate anyone into liking what you want them to like.

As for ‘wrong?’   Tell me this.  You’re an author who wrote a 1000 page novel.   You find out that every single person who has read your book only reads the first and last chapters.   Are you going to think that they are reading your novel right?   Are you going to be satisfied with their behavior?  Or are you going to suggest that perhaps they are reading the book wrong.  

So no, you can’t force or dictate anyone into liking what you want them to like – you can, however, comment that if they only read the first and last chapter of a book, they are reading it wrong.

Note, he didn’t say that you were wrong for liking Derek or Stiles or even shipping Sterek.   I’m sure he likes those characters.  He said, in his full quote, that if you watch the show ONLY for a ship, you are watching it wrong.

You can still ship anything and still pay attention to the whole story.  Or you can warp your experience by only focusing on ‘things you like.’  Just recently, I saw a Stydia shipper talk about how during 6a, they didn’t pay attention to the show if Lydia wasn’t on the screen.   This same person, of course, was absolutely confused by how things worked in the series finale.   Q.E.D.
