you two had a ship tag thing but i don't remember

Hi! I’m a new SNS art/fic/???/… blog! An amateur artist (as you can tell from the pic above lol) and cringe-worthy fanfic writer(i will NOT expose my loser AO3′s identity). I’m here to give these two idiots and the fandom as much love as my cold heart can.  ❤️

I saw one of your tags say that you're not sure Sam would be ok with Destiel and I'm curious why. Do you think it'd be like the Benny situation again or something else? I didn't ship Denny but I don't think Sam likes when someone else comes before him in Dean's eyes. (I can't see Sam not liking Desitle as a homophobic thing, but ya never know.) Anyway I'm genuinely curious because I could see Sam not exactly like a shipper but ultimately ok with it.

Hi! I have to say, I’m always torn when I hear about people reading my tags, because on the one hand I’m vain and prideful and they’re written to be read, but on the other, tagging is like talking to yourself, so - *blushes slightly*.

Anyway, first things first - before I discovered what a fandom was, I was a total sucker for shipper!Sam. My doubts didn’t begin until after I’d read a shitload of fanfiction about it, and something really rotten in my brain was like, What if Sam wasn’t okay with it, though? because I always like to be contrary and to turn things on their heads and see how they work and if they still work. So I’ve got no real problems with shipper!Sam. It’s just - I sometimes wonder - generally when I’m writing myself - what would be more interesting from a narrative point of view - if it’d be better to have Sam in the background, hanging up mistletoe and leaving The letter of the day is B leaflets around the Bunker or if it’d be easier for Dean to have something to push against. I think a case could be made either way - but if TPTB would have wanted to go down that first road, they probably wouldn’t have killed off Charlie, since she would have been (and she probably was) an even better shipper and wingman than Sam.

That said, I have two arguments against shipper!Sam.

One: Sam is way more messed up than he lets on, and some part of it is terrified not only that Dean will walk away, but that Dean will fall in love with someone and actually pursue that. I know I’ve seen this discussion go down somewhere, but I honestly don’t remember who first came up with this - apologies, guys - the fact that Sam is an all or nothing kind of guy. Like, when he went to Stanford, that was it - he never contacted John, or even Dean, again. For years. And the same happened when he was with Amelia - he just - I don’t know, cut himself off? I’m not sure if it’s his personality, or a by-product of his less than ideal childhood, but Sam’s got trouble to let people into his life, and once they’re in, it’s like there isn’t room for anyone else? Which is a childish trait, of course, and it signals a lack of emotional maturity on his part (not surprising - poor Sammy). And since Sam tends to relate with other people through his own experiences, part of him surely assumes Dean’s exactly the same; that if Dean found himself a new best friend, or a better hunting partner, or even a spouse of some kind, he’d just walk away and that would be it. So in this sense, Sam would feel threatened by any relationship Dean could potentially develop, not only by Cas.

Two, we used to see Sam as the shades of grey brother, but the amazing thing about this show is that Sam and Dean went through a lot of character development resulting in them almost swapping the roles they had in the first seasons - and yet all this feels natural and completely believable. So these days, Dean’s more likely to be the one who gives monsters a pass (hell, look at his relationship with Crowley), while Sam’s become sort of judgemental and what needs must. I think it was Ruby, most of all, who scarred Sam from the inside out and made him so much more conservative, or pragmatic (like, look at him now - he’s more willing than Dean to work with the BMoL, because he’s Mr Head Choice or something). Sam took a huge risk in liking and trusting Ruby, and it all hinged on a sort of anti-racism argument - an I don’t care if she’s a demon, because even demons can be nice and Our biology doesn’t determine our destiny and whatever else. Dean had shut him down about this, of course, but Sam had persisted - and I know there were other elements at play here, but to me, the central point was exactly this: a pigheaded and generous and noble willingness to trust a creature you don’t understand at all and you’ve got no reason to trust. Now, of course things are different with Cas, because Cas has proven, time and again, that Dean’s safety would be his number one priority and all that, but I’m still not convinced Sam would actively want that for Dean. After all, Sam’s seen this other, softer side of Dean’s - he’s seen him around kids (he remembers him from their shared childhood) and he’s heard (a bit) about how happy he was with Robin and whatever, so I sometimes feel Sam still wants the Sookie ending for Dean: a chance to have a true family of his own, and a life Dean could finally lead in full view of everybody, without shame or weirdness or sigils carved on the walls. And I’m not sure this is something Cas would be able to give Dean.

Finally, there’s the whole bisexuality deal. Here, I have to say - I don’t know what to think. I’m sure Sam’s got no problem with queer people, but it’s always slightly different when it’s your family, right? And there are days I think Sam must know - Jesus, they’ve been sharing a room for thirty years - and days when I think that no, that parent/child thing they’ve got going is way too strong for Sam to see the whole picture (to even think about it). 

(Like, I know it was supposed to be funny and that I’m reading too much into it, but Sam recoiling when Rowena suggested he undress Dean and check his chest hair or something - to me, that was emblematic of how their relationship works. Dean’s changed Sam’s diapers, has helped him to get dressed for years, surely bathed him and watched him play with that one plastic submarine they’d scavenged somewhere and, years later, he stitched him up and massaged weird herbal salves over his bruises and whatever - but to Sam, of course, it’s weird to think about his brother’s body at all, because that’s the relationship we have with our parents: when you actually have to take care of them that way, it means things have got very bad and very scary.)

In any case, at the very least Sam would be worried about Dean’s safety (and there’s always that heartbreaking thing, right, that if you’re bi and you can be happy with a woman - man, it’d be so much easier) - but one big reason to be optimistic in this sense was this new development we’ve seeing - that openly gay hunters can actually exist in the community without being bothered. 

(Then again, judging from the news coming about the US, I sometimes feel Dean and Cas could have their college AU life only in a big city, and not in one of those wild, road off to the horizon states where Dean feels most at home. So, well - I really don’t know.)

Anyway - we know so little about Sam, it’s likely that anything could work concerning his approach to the Destiel situation. I guess we’ll have to wait and see.

Why I don't think this ship is wrong

I’m not interesed in fighting with antis, or trying to change other people’s opinion forcefully. However It may be usefull if I collect some things I and others have said

TL;DR: This ship *can* be handled so badly that it makes our beloved conman into a pedophile, but I think the grand mayority of the people being bullied on this site don’t even ship it like that. Don’t put everyone on the same bag. People don’t deserve to be bullied for what they like in fiction and there are clear differences between reality and fiction.

I don’t think this ship is pedophilia simply because I dont ship it that way. Pedophilia implies fetichistic sexual atraction to kids under 13, and a horrible abusive element of “I don’t care about you, I just wanna fuck u cuz ur young”. Now, if you see this pairing as reigen sexualy taking advantage of a very young mob or simply not really caring about his well being and preying on him, that would count (and also be horribly ooc and a sad way of doing it).

However if, by example, you ship them romantically as having mutual care for each other and mob in full understanding and control of the situation, even if the relationship gets sexual while mob’s still 14, I wouldn’t call it pedo. Questionable or innapropiate? Yes. But not pedophilia. And then you have many, many, other scenarios that get really away from all that.

An important distinction should be mentioned here: While I’m ok with a romantic relationship between this two characters despite their age gaps, If I saw a similar age gap in real life and the younger party is still a minor, I would probably call the cops. For me that is the difference between fiction and real life for this issue. Minors in real life should be discouraged from dating people much older because they could easily be taken advantage of. However in fiction, you have control over these characters and you can make sure their relationship is healthy, especially if you keep them in character as much as you can.

You can have them being romantically involved but not turning sexual until mob is older. You can have them being platonic for a long time before they develop romantic feelings. You can have mob being assertive. You can have reigen feeling conflicted. You can adress the age gap issue. You can have it not mattering at all and them just slowly getting closer witouth noticing. You can have them being only platonic, in a very strong friendship.

There is many many ways to make this ship beautifull and I don’t think it’s just to put everyone on the same bag as the worst content and condem them all using a really severe accusation of condoning child abuse or being abusers themselves.

It’s just not alright to make call out blogs and tag whoever ships it, regardless of how they ship it, as “pedophiles”. I remember one of these some months ago tagging a user who only had like two barely shippy posts with grown up Mob as “condones pedophilia”. Neither is ok to send mean messages to users with death threats or fill their asks with insults. Or flood the main tag with complains about which, I have to be honest and say that to have so much nsfw noncon underage content popping on your dash as some people complain, at least on this site you literally would need to follow the 2-3 blogs with such content and have them on notifications. I know what Im talking about, I check the main ship tag nearly daily, follow most shippers and have stumbled onto that only like twice on my dash.

Continuing with the list of shit people have been puting on with, it’s even less fair to ramp up the generalizations and make really rude comics portraying all the shippers as disgusting creatures. Or say you get disgusted if a shipper reblogs your content, even if they respected your tagging preferences and/or the content has nothing to do with the ship at all. Or to claim “x has great art but they ship reimob, nevermind, their art is trash”. What’s the necessity of doing all that? I frankly doubt people who do that have the best interests of minors at heart. At best I have seen questionable beliefs about content on a site as tumblr being influencial enough such that a fanart with less than 50 notes of a niche fandom can “normalize pedophilia” in american society (because you know, we are all americans and america is the world). At worst it just seems to be used as excuse for harassment.

Speaking of that, regarding the users who make really wrong content: While I won’t defend that, I feel another distinction should be made. Do I think certain content is gross? Yes. Some of that content nearly made me throw up? Yes. Do I think the autor of that content is gross/deserves to die/etc? No. Do I harass them? No. Some of them have turned out to be csa survivors. I try to abide to the notion that nobody should be bullied for their likings in fictional settings, even if I don’t like it. What I do to deal with that is simply not follow the blogs with such content and so far it works.

As I said, I’m not interesed in discussing with antis, I just wanted to put some things together. Maybe it will help confused bystanders understand the shippers aren’t defending pedophilia. We are just defending a ship we like and love. Let’s try to respect each other.

Top five Fruitshipping moments. Cause I want to see a good show don't tell relationship and we have plenty of moments to fill a large variety of these lists.

Oh god just 5??? Okay I got this be still my heart

5. Episode 2, Yuzu and Yuya’s action duel

Okay I know this is pretty early in the series and it can be seen as platonic, but you get so much character from this scene and grounds of a solid friendship between them. Like:

Yuzu’s getting shit because she was rude to Yuya like some of the fandom does to her lol but instead she just goes with it.

Like at this point of the story we now know both Yuya and Yuzu are entertainers, and now we get to see them doing what they love together and how they work off each other.

Not to mention this scene is funny as hell. Like wow it’s just showing us two cuties performing together (granted it’s not perfect because Yuya’s in funk atm) and I already fell for their dynamic at this point and its only ep 2. 

ALSO they fucking used Plain Plain (where this duel took place) in episode 141 to rip my god damn heart out and to show this duel had meaning and we should realize that we’re missing Yuzu.

4. Yuya is PISSED/cry baby (eps 50 + 51)

At this point in the show we’ve gotten a good basis on their relationship. Yuya and Yuzu are childhood friends with the same goal and they inspire each other to become stronger. Pretty standard and honestly nothing new.

And then they get separated.

Like I did NOT expected them to act the way they did when this happened (at least Yuya because when has a main protag ever cared that much for the female protag minus Anzu from season 0)

I am 98% sure that this is the first time Yuya has cried openly to people without his goggles AND ITS CAUSE OF YUZU. This boy has hidden his emotions about his dad, his bullying, and pendulum summoning but Yuzu’s apparent capture is what got Yuya to finally show his sadness and not cover them with jokes and his goggles.

Yuya as we know, when he’s not berserker, is a pacifist but he’s going out of character because he’s so mentally distraught and sad. Like the only person I would get like that for is my twin so to me this speaks volumes since Yuya values Yuzu’s well being over his own values.  

And then in Yugioh it’s a known thing that the female protags most times stay on the side line and cheer on the main protag AND THEYRE ACTUALLY ACKNOWLEDGING IT AND IT’S SUPER IMPORTANT TO YUYA. Like apparently Yuma’s says something similar to Kotori near the end of Zexal but I’m not there yet but like this is ep 50 compared to 140-something.

Looking back this is super important. Like when Zarc got revived he stated he was surprised/thrilled that there was more to Pendulum Summoning than he first thought (combining all the three methods w/ it) and the reason Yuya was able to do it was because of Yuzu. He was able to go beyond Zarc’s expectations and plans BECAUSE OF YUZU.

God when has a main protag screamed out a female protags name like that before in yugioh??? 

Yuzu is also a cry baby three episodes down the line.

3. Yuzu saves Yuya from Zarc

It speaks volumes when nearly all your friends (including your bff THE MAN Gonzengaka) can’t save from Satan, but the moment you say one sentence to you, you regain some control.

Like god, I love their relationship. Zarc and Ray are literally trying to destroy the other but these two can break through their previous lives soul’s to communicate with one another cause of how god damn much they mean to each other.

Listen if you go across DIMENSIONS to get save someone in Yugioh YOU KNOW your ship is real (Spiritshipping and Keyshipping being the other prime examples). But like in my fruitshipping video (which ya’ll should watch) this moment is when I used the lyrics ‘no distance can ever keep us apart’ because WOW dimensions AND demonic/angelic possessions isn’t enough sever the bond between these two.

Also my otp tag.

2. Yuya summons Odd-Eyes Raging Dragon

Lowkey this moment is up so high because Yuya’s just fucking amazing in this scene. Like Zarc’s influence is getting stronger but like LIST OF THINGS THAT HAVE CAUSED YUYA SO GO BERSERKER 

-Ep 39 with Zarc’s trigger words and Yuya didn’t even remember it

-Yuto’s memories of being attacked the Academia 

-Being electrocuted in the god damn brain

-Being in the same area as all four boys that causes a hole to open in the sky

-Creepy old guys touching Yuzu

Like one of these things is not like the other lol

Seriously though, the others are near close to psychological torture and PTSD but someone touching Yuzu inappropriately invokes the same amount of rage from Yuya. THATS A HUGE ASS COMPARISON. Also the scene was gorgeous god damn.

1. Yuzu inspires Yuya during Friendship Cup

Okay this moment…THIS is when Fruitshipping went from a casual ship to god damn otp for me.

So for the past couple eps, Yuya has been feeling like shit (ground facility, losing Jack, missing Yuzu), of course Yuzu doesn’t know some of bad shit that’s going on, but goddamit the citrus is going to show the tomato that she’s okay.

Like dueling for other people is nothing new to yugioh but holy SHIT

Of course Yuzu doesn’t know the cost of losing, but all she wants to do is make Yuya feel at ease (which the poor boy hasn’t felt in so long fuck)

Yuzu hasn’t spoken to Yuya this entire arc but she knows how he’s feeling right now. She knows Yuya. This just furthers the belief that they’ve known each other for so god damn long and are ‘irreplaceable’ to one another.

Look at how goddamn surprised he is. Like instead of worrying about herself, she’s worried about him?? Granted this might have to do with Yuya’s self worth issues And as the duel goes on, it’s not just her feelings she trying to convey to Yuya (hot-blooded and shivers). Instead of ‘oh look it’s your love-interest’s feelings’ she shows that everyone from back in Standard are also with Yuya.

ALSO THEY PLAYED YUYA’S THEME DURING THIS GOD. EVEN THE OST’S ARE SHOWING US THEIR RELATIONSHIP.

LOOK AT HOW GOD DAMN HAPPY HE IS. LIKE WHEN HAS THIS BOY EVER CRIED FROM JOY SO FAR IN THIS SHOW. THIS IS DEVELOPMENT THAT HE SHOULDN’T HIDE HIS EMOTIONS AND SHOULD EMBRACE THEM AHH.

Just…fuck me. 

InuKag Last Day Bonus: Thank You Cynthia

I can’t believe InuKag Week is actually ending today. It’s been such an amazing fun wild seven days, and it’s felt like an avalanche I was snowboarding on from the very beginning on Monday to the last today. 

All the content has filled me with so much InuKag love, I didn’t even think I was capable of loving this ship anymore than I do, but everyone combined putting out amazing effort to post or reblog or submit, it’s almost like we were all together at a week long festival just happy to be around. I’ve discovered so many people from this event, my following list has GROWN exponentially haha. 

Last year I made a post like this thanking the fandom, and trust me when I say none of this is possible without the participation and love of a large group of people supporting us throughout the entire thing. You all are the heart and soul of this machine, and it doesn’t have a purpose without you. 

But this year I want to Thank Someone very special and dear to this fandom and myself:

@inukag aka Cynthia, has given so much to make not only this event, but our corner of the InuKag fandom an incredibly fun and interactive place. Last year when we did InuKag week together, we were both already excited and expectant for InuKag Week 2017, and before we knew it, IT WAS 2017, and she had taken care of ALL the prompts, ALL the edits, she REVAMPED the theme of this site, and from the very start on Monday at midnight, she was checking the tags, answering asks, doing it all while I was sleeping

(And “Family” day btw? I’ve already told you, but it WRECKED ME. Like a damn wrecking ball, Miley Cyrus aside, it ended my life over and over and over again.) 

She can try telling you we were a team today, but if we were a team, she was my leader and I followed a few miles behind in absolute awe. 

She needs 100% credit for this week, and WHAT BETTER PERSON to give credit to for InuKag week if not the sole owner of the canon InuKag url. (Doesn’t get better than this, folks)

Maybe you’ve known her as “towards-tomorrow” or maybe you’ve just gotten to know her these past two years as “inukag”, but I can promise you that if you’ve ever looked up anything remotely InuKag, you have probably liked or reblogged her gifs and beautiful gorgeous edits or analysis essays. Her imprint on this fandom echoes out from years and years ago to the present. 

She’s been patient and tolerant and kind, digging through canon material to explain things to us- us who have no clue what chapter is what. You could ask her “what chapters did Kagome get mad at Inuyasha?” and she’ll pull out annotated pages with highlighted quotes and footnotes. 

This girl spent days and sleepless hours making sure the promos for the InuKag Week 2017 Master Post were perfect- sometimes, sometimes I wish everyone got a behind the scenes look at how she spends meticulous time making sure every frame is perfect, making sure she has the right English verbiage, going through drafts and drafts on her tumblr until she has it just right. Still kicking herself sometimes for it not being as perfect as SHE wanted it to be, even though it’s BEYOND PERFECT to everyone else. 

She spent time thinking “How can we make this as inclusive as possible?”. She thinks of ideas on how to make it so every single person can do SOMETHING as long as they want to and have the means to access a computer or phone. 

This InuKag Week has by and large been even more fun and successful than the last, and I just want to take a moment to Thank You

This fandom doesn’t deserve you, it’s never deserved you. And even when you’re burnt out, even when you’re wondering “is it even worth it”, you pull it through and manage to host an entire week long event that ignites us. 

You are the Queen, and this week would never have functioned the way it has without you. 

(We look professional af Cynthia and it’s all because of you.)

One day you might be making events or sites for big corporate companies (maybe a small indie firm), or sit in a really nice office with a window, and I really hope you remember the impact you’ve made in this VERY LARGE corner of the fandom.

I love you, and thank you thank you thank you. 

There’s still the rest of today to enjoy our favorite Soul Mates, so take a break, enjoy your weekend (what’s left of it!) and look back at all these wonderful people celebrating with us. Bask in it. 

HAPPY INUKAG WEEK!!! <3

Ya know what grinds my gears about RWBY

When ‘edgy’ rwde RWBY fans:

- Try and blame the bumbleby shippers for the ‘ship war’ between it and [the other ship involving Blake] that’s apparently ruining the show and the three characters, or vice versa ship wise

Because insinuating it’s all our fault will make us feel guilty and hopefully we will shut up [not likely tho]; the whole thing is just our fault because we want our ship to happen just as much as the other side whom of which are not at fault at all. Like almost a ‘war’ doesn’t take two opposing sides to actually happen? Lmao. Nobody is really at fault, except the people that attack others.

- Use them as a reason to not watch it anymore [even though they 'hate it anyway and the writing is awful omg’]

Since the plot that was probably thought up years ago is being ruined by us, even though it 'sucks anyway because Miles and/or Kerry is/are terrible’ and it’s not like two VAs for two of the characters ship it or anything.

- Say 'they only attack the other ships and only want to focus on their ship at all times’

Because I can remember the amount of times I’ve attacked another person for liking a ship [it’s zero], and most people aren’t dickheads, and we shouldn’t be lumped in with the ones that are because that’s bs generalisation. And we all don’t only focus on bumbleby, but for some of us it’s a really big deal that maybe there’s gonna be gay gals that are on screen, and not just in the last scene of the series [cough LoK]. And I think about the whole show but I like to discuss important things to me i.e the ship.

- Claim 'maybe not all of bb shippers are bad but *proceeds to reason why they’re all bad anyway and/or make the ship suffer for a few bad eggs*’

Cool thanks for contradicting yaself, generalising once again and/or making a perfectly reasonable ship seem like it’s shit because some people are mean about it.

- We’re man haters/unreasonably disliking [or insert anything about $un], since ’$un is amazing’

Some people not liking $un that much as a character ≠ man hating/≠ unreasonable. I don’t like all the characters in a show wow I’m a monster.

- Say 'I’m fine with f/f but *here’s why I will not support it anyway*’

If you’re fine with f/f, you don’t have to mention it if you’re disagreeing with the ship for unrelated reason m8!

- Or my favourite: say “the shippers ruined Blake x Yang and I don’t even want it to happen now”

I don’t even know any of these people irl and now I have to watch some people bash a ship because of some random person’s actions I had no control over. Sounds pretty dumb doesn’t it?

- Possibly more stupid bs that is purely subjective opinion they use to try to justify hating the show/a ship/a character.

Apparently we act/are acting like 'entitled brats’ when we want LGBT etc etc representation in the show that has been said by its creators to have it; and we want it in the bumbleby ship. Because somehow, we are forcing them to do it by supporting it, and therefore making the show a piece of shit.

That we are reaching; since [insert any possible evidence for Blck$un] happened and it’s **proof** they’re going to date and that no other ship has a chance.
(if I thought BB was the only option I wouldn’t be discussing it like I do; anything is possible right now).
Literally nothing is canon or set in stone (I promise I don’t say that as a reason to 'disprove’ the legitimatacy of Blck$un as a possibility).

Because two main characters being interested in each other would //ruin the plot//, even though some of the plot has included Yang (and even $un too) being dragged into Blake’s consequences of her past.

And especially, that we are solely responsible for the drama because we are all crazy or just seeing what we want to see.

Because that isn’t exactly what everyone does when they want a ship to happen…?

Let’s be clear:
This goes both ways for anyone who goes around hating (yet some of the reasons would differ).

Going around attacking someone for liking a ship is ludicrous. Spreading hate about a ship is too.

I endeavour to never do that and have been successful. It’s not difficult.
I stay in my tag and all that tumblr shit; I stick to being positive and not including *why another ship won’t happen* as a reason to justify my favourite ship.

Using another ship as a reason to disprove something makes no sense because nobody is correct at this point, we’ve got equal chance of getting what we each want. In the end some of us may end up disappointed, but that’s not happening right now so why can’t we just be civil?

Why should Blck$un shippers suffer because of other shippers? They shouldn’t.
Why should bee shippers suffer because of other shippers? We shouldn’t.

Seriously, any normal person in any ship camp wouldn’t agree with being rude or mean to other people over a ship, or attacking somebody for having different tastes.

Most importantly to me; why should the chance of Bumbleby happening be damaged or suffer, just because a few people are disgruntled because of some assholes that NONE of us sane people agree with?

Don’t let anybody tell you what to ship. Decide for yourself and be positive about it, aim for support and *that’s it*.

Stop the negativity, please.

A Court of Flames and Curses (3)

the 4th book in the ACOTAR series ~ 1 2


“I don’t understand why we didn’t dock where you came from to follow your path to the lake.”

Lucien looks at Nesta irritably. “The tides make it difficult. And I told you, we moved at night so Vassa could walk with us and share information. I wouldn’t remember the path through the forest now.”

“We’re here,” Cassian says, holding the map up in front of Nesta and jabbing a coastal spot near the circled patch of forest. “It’s almost due east of here.”

“Why shouldn’t we try to go directly to the lake?”

“Best to meet the Suriel—”

“The Wayfinder,” Lucien corrects.

“—and see what it has to say about the matter.”

“We only get one question,” Nesta says. “And we already know, roughly, where the lake is.”

“We can ask how to break the curse,” Amren says, appearing on deck with her pack. “And who put it on her, since she doesn’t know.”

“A nymph. We know that,” Nesta says.

Cassian rolls the map and tucks it into her bag. “All we know is that he’s a nymph. No forest spirit disappears into the human lands without reason.”

“Nor any Suriel,” Lucien adds.

“Come on,” Amren says, pushing between Lucien and Cassian to lead the group. “We’ve discussed this enough. We need to wade in.”

I'm going through your Obianidala tag and I love your headcanon that basically despite all of Anakin's issues he's somehow the only one who doesn't forget HUMANS NEED FOOD. Because YES. "If you two don't come eat the dinner 3PO & I made for you RIGHT NOW-" "Oh please Anakin it's not that big a deal-" "You're married to a slave from Tattooine, love, I can say with authority that FOOD IS A BIG DEAL."

Yeah, it’s kinda funny in a way, isn’t it? Out of all of them, he’s the one most likely to have hangups about food (and he does have those, make no mistake) but he also remembers to EAT WHEN HE’S HUNGRY. Something the other two do not remember to do, because they both come from places where food is plentiful and will be there whenever they get to it. 

Not to mention that I HC that one of the things that Shmi always made sure of when Anakin was growing up was his eating routine. Anakin ALWAYS had food at certain times, fuck the masters, she would find a way to feed him at set times. A few times, Shmi got punished for either stopping her work to feed her son or for telling Anakin to stop his work to eat. Shmi taught Anakin the importance of hoarding food that doesn’t go bad because you never know when you might have a time when you don’t have enough - which did happen a few times in Ani’s youth, but she always made sure he had food. 

Now, as an adult, Anakin still has a tendency to hoard food either on his person, in Artoo, in his ships, or in his rooms. Routines are important to Anakin, so he always eats around the same time because if he’s too far off he panics. 

(Obi-Wan found out the hard way that telling Anakin he could eat after X was done was a good way to get Anakin to loose trust in him. It was also a good way to get Anakin’s age-mates injured because X was usually either sparring practice or a class or something of that nature and Anakin would quickly loose his shit on someone. Obi-Wan didn’t really get it until he had the misfortune of not shielding enough one night after he pushed Anakin’s dinner back by two hours and he had a horrific nightmare of one of Anakin’s neighbors slowly starving to death. The worse part, for Obi-Wan at least, was that his mind turned Anakin’s neighbor into Garen, one of his closest friends, and it really messed with his head.)

So, yes, it’s darkly funny that out of all of them, he’s the one that remembers that Humans Need Food, What Is WRONG With You Two??

Firstly loving your SK stories, typos and all! I was hoping you could give me some good RK authors/stories, I know you write them too but they aren't your main ship. I've grown a bit bored of the SK stuff, it all seems to be the same rehashed stories or just pornos (excluding yours and a few others). I don't know where to start though and I saw you did a kastle rec list which was great, any suggestions? I don't want a 500 word porno, I want angst, drama, humour and all that good stuff!!

Hello Lovely!

I’m so glad you’re loving my SK stories. I have a blast writing them and I always try to write something unique into everything I do. I have plans for a chapter RK piece, but I have to finish a couple of things, before I can commit that that one. :)

Okay on to the rec list:


Start here: 

SuperFriends/Hokum/KichieFiction her: Tumblr or her AO3

She writes some of the best Kichie stuff. She’s got some great multiple chapter pieces and some wonderful stand alones as well. 

The Dark Side of Sun series: A re-telling of the end of the Season 3. The first part of the series is complete and the second part is in progress. This has a complex storyline and a lot of heart in it.
Summary: ”They say love can make or break you and Amaru is about to make sure it breaks Richie. Having regained her true form she takes a dying Kate hostage as leverage for what she really wants: to make a slave out of Richard Gecko. Richie’s not about to let Kate go without a fight, even if that means paying the ultimate price to save the girl he loves.”

Cupids Chokehold series: AU series with a Kichie established relationship and Seth trapped with his crazy wife Vanessa. I LOVE this series I laugh until I cry every time. It is spectacular!!
Summary: Vanessa is crazy and it’s highly entertaining when Kate drinks too much. 

Killing Time on Valentines: Five one shots pieces and they are great.
Summary: As Kate and Richie are the epitome of “meant to be”; here a few Valentine’s Day related one shots featuring; Awkward Richie, Angry Vanessa, Over Protective Seth, Sexy Kate and Exasperated Uncle Eddie. Enjoy!

Plus @kichiefiction is just lovely soul. Check out her Tumblr for content


Two of her recs are:
Her Makeup Stains by Dearxalchemist
Three years of culebra slaying has passed before Seth leaves her. Kate embarks on her own personal crusade to continue the good fight. She takes matters in to her own hands and does whatever it takes to get the job. She’s borderline reckless and plays the role of bait to lure out the monsters. Kate embarks on a night of dancing. The music is pulsing around her, blocking out the world as she closes her eyes and tilts her head back. This is her church now and the fellowship is an old face she never expected to see again.

Trespass Sweetly Urged by Gaya
About first times and mornings after


Other Kichie pieces:

Monsters by gaslight_skellington
Summary: “Seth showing up unannounced she could imagine, and handle – her relationship with that Gecko had never been quite as complicated as her relationship with this Gecko but truthfully, she didn’t think she wanted to see them again; her life was normal and dull, but it was finally hers and she was content with it. The Geckos showing up two years after she’d left them could never mean anything good.
“Hello Kate.”
She shivered at the sound of his voice and the intensity in his eyes and then scowled at herself for allowing him to see how he affected her. She decided anger was better than angst and glared at him, going on the defensive immediately.
“What are you doing here? Please tell me this is just a coincidence and then leave.”
“You don’t think for a second this is a coincidence, Kate. And I’m not leaving without you.”

Bits of Three by  theredhoodie 
Summary:
“The innermost thoughts of Kate Fuller during her interactions with one Richie Gecko.”
 - That one is short but I always liked it.

Tumblr links

@thebeastunderyourbed… Kichie tagged things: here

@nuritxu - Great content there as well: Tumblr

And there are others. Please feel free to reblog and add on. I wish I knew everyone in this ship a little better. I’ve been buried in my own writing lately. This should give you a good start though. 

Just remember I’m a multishipper for this fandom and I’m not trying to start drama. If you aren’t a fan of Richie and Kate, just move on by. :)
Be supportive and be kind.

Love to my Loves!!

Dream pt.2

Hi! Love your stories! I have a newt request if you fancy it? The reader is marrying a man she doesn’t love (arranged marriage or she doesn’t remember newt because she was oblivated) but newt is in love with her and she with him. He asks her not to go through with it and kisses her, they end up sleeping together then Newt asks her to come away with him and travel instead and she agrees

THERE WILL BE A PART 3

Part 1 Part 3

I woke up at three in the afternoon, ate 3 popsicles, and now I’m watching power rangers jungle fury 

Tags- @danilovesstuff @i-ship-it-ironically

Warnings- Sin(sex), yelling.


“Newt?” 

You stand shocked, the man from your dream was standing in front of you. You both stood silent, staring into each other’s eyes. The jingle of a bell snapped your focus. 

“Y/n there you are! I went back to our apartment and you weren’t there” Your fiance walks over to you and kisses you. You smile and hug him, he looks over at everyone, 

“Who are these people?” he asks, mostly staring at Newt. 

“Um, these are some new friends of mine. Jacob, Queenie, Tina, and Newt” 

You don't know how but the names came with you. Newt’s face was laced with pain. You didn’t know why or how but you knew you knew them. 

“Well nice to meet you” Jason says. He turns back to you.

“I’m so sorry Y/n but I have a very important meeting tonight, I know I promised we would spend some time together before the wedding but I can’t afford to miss this meeting.” Jason says. 

“Oh, It’s okay, we’ll spend time together on our wedding day anyway.” you say. 

“Thank you so much sweetheart” Jasons says. 

He kisses your cheek before running out the door. You turn back to everyone, Newt is looking away while Queenie and Tina are staring at you. 

“I’m sorry but, how do I know your names?” you ask in confusion. Queenie and Tina look at each other with concerned looks before looking back at you. 

“It’s a long story but, it’s nothing now” they say quickly. You were about to question more when Newt interrupted you. 

“Who was that”. you look at Newt, his eyes filled with emotion. 

“M-my fiance, we’re getting married in two days” you tell him. Newt tenses up, his grip on his case grows tighter. 

“I-I I got to go I’m sorry” Newt says as he rushes out the door. 

“Newt wait” Tina says running after him. 

“Queenie, how do I know Newt and Tina? How do I know Tina’s name? How do I know these things?” you cry out. You were so confused.Queenie puts her hand on your shoulder. 

“I’m not supposed to tell you, Its against the law but…When have I ever listened to the law.” 

“So you’re telling me that you, Tina, and Newt are wizards and Me and Jacob are, No majs? and we went on some huge adventure looking for Newts creatures that got loose and there was this big battle in a subway station?” You ask in disbelief. Queenie nods her head. 

“That’s it, I’ve gone insane” you mumble standing up and pacing. 

“Y/n, I know you’ve had dreams about this. I see it in your mind. I see your memories” Queenie tells you. 

“What about Newt? he seemed so broken when I told him I was getting engaged. Did something happen between us?” You question. Queenie’s look turns to sadness. 

“You too were in love” she whispers. 

“W-what? I, I. What am I supposed to do? I'm getting married in two days!” you exclaim. 

“You don’t have to do anything honey, it’s up to you” she says. 

“Can, can I talk to him?” you ask. 

“Of course, come with me. back to our apartment. Tina might be rather mad at me but ill take you to our apartment” Queenie says sweetly. 

“Queenie! What were you thinking! Y/n was supposed to be obliviated and you think it was a good idea to tell them about us!” Tina yells at her sister. 

w“She remembered Tina! I saw it in her memories!” Queenie yelled back. You shrunk back in the corner. 

“I-I just wanted to say hi to Newt” you squeak. Tina looks at you and sighs. 

“He’s down in his case y/n, I miss you I really do but, this could get us all in trouble with MACUSA” Tina tells you. 

You nod understandingly and walk to Newts case. You open the case and jump in. You crash into newts case and sprawl out on the floor. You groan in pain, I guess your memory didn’t remember the stairs. Newt comes rushing in, his eyes widen when he sees you on the floor in pain. 

“Y/N! what are you doing here?” He asks. 

You look over at him, his hair is a mess and he doesn’t have his long coat on, instead he just has his white shirt and his bowtie on. You quickly stood up but your leg gave out. Newt ran and caught you before you hit the ground again. he sets you on a crate and quickly makes a potion for you. 

“Queenie told me everything” you state. Newt freezes for a second before going back to the potion. 

“Did she now?” Newt asks, slight panic in his voice. 

“She told me that we-” you were cut off by Newt handing you a vile. 

“Drink this, the pain will go away” he says. You slowly drink it. You watch Newt reorganize his things. 

“She told me we were in love” you say. Newt slams a book on the table causing you to jump. 

“It was nothing” he says coldly.

“Well it certainly seems like something” you reply. There was a sickening silence between you two. 

“Are you happy?” he asks. 

“What?” 

“I said, Are you happy? with him” Newt says. 

“I-I am” you reply slowly. 

“Then what happened between us doesn’t matter anymore.” The sharpness in his voice is gone but replaced with sadness. 

“But I need to know, What happened between us Newt?” You push. 

“No you dont need to know. You’re perfectly happy with your fiance.” Newt says, not even looking at you. 

“It would be best if you just leave. Forget about me and forget about what Queenie told you and just go. Go live your life.” He tells you. 

“No I need to know what happened!” you say raising your voice. You step closer to Newt whos back is still turned. 

“Please just tell me.” you beg. 

“Do you really not remember anything that happened between us?” he asks, his voice barely above a whisper. You stay silent. 

“You don’t remember the kisses, the laughs, the hugs, the time we first time we met, the first time I showed you my creatures, the first time we said I love you. I was madly in love with you y/n. A small part of me was hoping you would remember me. A small part hoped that the rain wouldn’t wash away all the memories we shared.” Newt’s voice cracked. 

“I-I had dreams, that’s how I remembered your name but…I don’t remember anything else” you admit. 

“Then I’ll show you.” Newt says. 

He turns around and pulls you into a sudden kiss. his arms wrap around your waist. You freeze, you should pull away, yell at Newt then walk away but, something seemed so familiar about his lips. They felt right. Newt pulls away, basically pushing you away. 

“I-I’m so sorry. I know I shouldn’t have done that. Your engaged and you don’t even remember me. I think you should leave Y/n” Newt breathes, stepping back. You stand still. You bring your hand to your lips. 

“Newt…” 

“Please, just forget what happened. Go back to your fiance. Please love” he says quietly. 

“No one’s ever called me love before” you murmur. 

“That’s what I would call you” he says. You walk closer to Newt, he steps away until his back hits the wall. 

“Y/n, you should really go” he whispers. 

“I want to remember you Newt. I want you to show me how much you love me. Please” you whisper in his ear. 

“A-are-” You cut Newt off by smashing your lips onto his. 

His hands go to your waist, gripping like it’s the last time he’s going to see you again. Which was the case in his mind. Your hands grasp at his hair, tugging and pulling. Newt lets out a groan and walks you to the bed in the shed. You fall back and Newt climbs on top of you. 

“Y/n, are you sure about this” he says in between kisses. 

“I’ve never been more sure of anything” you tell him. 

With that reassurance, Newt kisses down your face to your neck. 

“Newt” you groan out. 

He kisses and bites at your neck. You reach down to his shirt and start to unbutton his shirt. He takes it off and throws it to the side of the room. He grabs onto the edges of your shirt you nod and Newt takes off your shirt. You run your hands over his chest and move your hands down to his pants. You take off his belt and pull his pants down, he kicks off his pants and underwear. You flip the two of you so you’re on top. You start grinding down on him and leave kisses all over his chest. 

“Oh Y/n” Newt moans. 

He flips you again and you take off your pants. You take off your underwear and bring Newt in for another kiss. You’re both panting and groaning. He grabs a condom from the table drawer and puts it on while you kiss down his back. He lines up and looks at you. 

“Newt please” you beg. 

Newt pushes into you. You moan and arch your back in ecstasy. Newt thrusts slowly, wanting you to feel nothing but pleasure. He leans down and kisses you. His kiss is fueled by love. In your mind, you knew it was wrong but being with Newt felt so right. He thrusts faster with your approval, he moans into your mouth. He’s in a pure state of bliss. 

“N-newt, I think i-i’m-” 

“Me too love” he groans into your mouth. 

You close your eyes and let out a loud moan as you release. Newt groans into your neck as he releases inside the condom. You lay there breathing heavily. Newt takes off the condom and throws it in the trash. He kisses you again and lays next to you. He 

“Y/n” Newt starts. 

“In the morning, please. Let’s face the consequences in the morning. I think I’m in love with you again Newt” you tell him. 

“I never stopped loving you Y/n” he replies. 

You smile and kiss his nose before burying your face in his chest. He wraps his arms around your waist and breathes in your scent. He missed you so much and e had you again. He didn’t know what was going to happen in the morning but he didn’t care. 

He wanted this night to last forever, he wanted to stay like this forever. He decided to stop worrying about the morning and just enjoy the present. After all, Worrying means you suffer twice. 


I have sinned again but oh well, I tried my hardest to make it gender neutral. Also, ive had way more popsicles lol and im considering starting an RP blog. although i dont know if I should rp just as newt or as other people too.

What I found out about Maruma/KKM after reading the novel up to 15 chapters.

WARNING! MAY CONTAIN SPOILERS.

Yuuri is not as innocent as I thought he is. He’s still dense and very kind but not stupid and innocent.

I fell in love completely with Yuuri from the ball at Dai Shimaron chapter and I feel so guilty towards Wolfram and to think that he’s my baby.

Yuuri POV consists, things he shouldn’t do, baseball reference, and how beautiful Wolfram is.

Wolfram is Yuuri’s personal sun.

Flynn has more characters and not as plain as how I remembered her from the anime.

The Maou Yuuri is a lot more badass!

Adalbert is more likable, I mean a lot lot lot more likable in the novel I found myself loving his character so much!

And his side story with Julia thrown me off board from ConradxJulia ship and I even throw that ship into the abyss now.

Maxine is the character I strangely found enjoyable it still puzzle me.

Adalbert and Maxine relationship is one hell of a relationship. Well, they are a perfect family! Father, son and granddaughters.

Conrad is not a Mr. nice guy!

Don’t get me wrong I don’t mean he’s hateful, I mean he has a dark side that I never see from the anime.

Conrad not return had so much more impact to the whole story and the anime did bad by changing that.

ConYuu in the novel is strong but I still have the same opinion as from the anime. I don’t ship them.

Greta is great! (I’m borrowing Conrad’s lame joke)

But seriously I always thought Greta as a tag-along character. The character which don’t bring much significant but her character did have impact and she’s very adorable and I love her!

The additional character like, Amblin, Sizemore, Chevalier and others help spiced things up so I feel bad they were cut off from the anime.

I love Anini so much!!!!!!! She’s mad, she genius, she’s mad, she’s funny, she’s mad, she’s strong, she’ ma… Did I already said mad? XP

Owh! And how she always happen to slap everyone with her hair whenever she turn around is my personal favorite.

Have I told that I now ship GwenxAnini?

I DO! HARD!

Their relationship is the best and even so cringe worthy.

When will you two gonna get married.

Maybe the youngest will be the first one.

Gwen win the best older brother award. I mean despite of his fear, he went into his dimensional drawer in order to go to Kalbenikoff coz he thought Anissina tried to use Conrad as Romero.

I’m so proud of my Wolf cub if I’m gonna write about how proud I am of him I may need end up writing for days.

He matured so much!

I love him more and more and more now!

And he’s not the unreasonably over jealous type.

But Yuuri’s so afraid of him especially whenever Wolfram give the we’ll-talk-this-in-private vibe that I found it amusing.

Yuuram in the novel is much stronger my shipping heart almost can’t stand it.

Just get married already guys!

But on second thought, they did acted up like a married couple.

Btw, I found out that many people are in favor for their engagement.

So hurry up and get married!

Yozak is more Gurier(I wonder if you get this) and I love him soooooo much!

Coz I love Yozak so much, I’m really mad at Conrad when he accused Yozak as irresponsible for purposely losing to Adalbert and cause Yuuri to have to fight as third contestant in the Shimaron tournament. And the other time is during Seisa arc when Yozak being controlled and became the enemy Conrad don’t hesitate to cross sword with him. I mean come on Conrad, he’s protecting Yuuri with his life during your absence!

I don’t know what happen to Yozak but I hope he’s fine! *pray hard*

Weird but I can’t ship Conrad with anyone at all.

Sara is terrible! Nuff said.

But I love the terrible Sara anyway.

Sergeant Gisela is the best. How she flipped the switch from the gentle healer to Demon Sergeant is the best. Go on and admire her Greta.

Murata is wiser but only from novel I understand his pain of not able to forgot. *pats Murata*

He’s wise but he did acted up like a 4000 years old man.

Lady Cheri is indeed a good mother and I’m totally fine with her free love lifestyle.

Fanfan is really cheesy I’m puking out rainbows! No! You don’t have to take note Dorcascos!

Gunter is really disgusting! Lol

I found Bob to be a really funny guy.

Ah! Shouri needs more limelight. He deserved it!

I basically just love everyone in the novel.

The novel can turn from serious to a total crack in 0.001 second yet I’m totally fine with it.

I agree with how the novel don’t sugarcoat things just to make them acceptable.

All in all I’m enjoying the novel so much I feel sad to finish the other two volumes so I tried to take my time by reading the gaidens and extras slowly.
I still don’t have any thought bout Shinou coz I’m just about to read the gaiden.
I might add things up as I still have lots of material to read and if I suddenly remember things. XP

despite what you’ve been told (pt 4)

I meant to finish this earlier in the week but did not bc of who I am as a person. There will be 3 more installments after this one & then this sucker will get a proper beta and an ao3 upload

Read Part One | Part Two | Part Three


Victor sulks.

At first he’s genuinely sad, sad enough that after practice he goes back to his hotel room and stays there for the rest of the day feeling foolish and heartbroken and wishing he could cuddle his dog.  (At one point he actually calls his sitter and has her put Makkachin on Facetime and leave the room so he can apologize; they’re not moving to a nice place in Japan with lots of beaches and a new special human for him to play with after all.)  He orders something forgettable off the room service menu that seems indulgent at the time, picks at it while flipping through the television offerings and finally succumbs to jet lag late in the afternoon.

Chris shows up at his door around 8pm with an ice dancer pair Victor remembers from the European Championship and two women he feels like he ought to know but doesn’t.  He hasn’t been paying attention to the new faces at competitions for a while now, hasn’t been following the up and coming Juniors the way he used to; maybe if he had he’d have recognized Yuuri’s face when he saw it, would have known his career instead of scrambling to learn about it in a fever rush after the GPF banquet.  Maybe things would have been different.

queerschtein  asked:

isaac wakes up one morning unexpectedly naked and hungover in bed with an equally naked chris argent and a fractured recollection of the previous night. stiles, who has come to accept the situation, is making chocolate chip pancakes downstairs.

About three things Isaac is absolutely positive.

First, Chris Argent is naked.

Second, there is a part of him—and Isaac isn’t sure which part that is—that was definitely inside Isaac last night.

And third, Isaac is also unconditionally and irrevocably naked right now.

endverse gothic

[tw post-apocalyptic grotesque bleakness involving dead bodies & stuff]

He’s headed northwest on I-70 when at last he’s finally forced to pull over.

In the end, it’s not because he’s out of gas, or because stalled cars and trucks have blocked the interstate completely making it impossible to go around. He’s had to go off-road surprisingly few times, mostly thanks to multi-vehicle collisions; drivers long since dragged from their cars and either devoured or turned, stuck horns no longer blaring, headlights dimmed. Only very rarely is the clump of accidents so bad and the shoulder so impassable (or, once, in Pennsylvania, a washed-out bridge) that he simply has to change cars: walk to the other side of the tangle and steel himself to pull whatever’s left from another driver’s seat. Then there’s a ritual: jump-start the battery with his remaining juice, hot-wire ignition the way he was taught; check the gas level, wipe the oil dipstick, examine the tires. Sometimes, to his relief and pleasure—an uncomfortable pleasure, followed by a thick sickened feeling he suspects might be shame—all he has to do is just turn the key, because whoever was about to die had startled presence of mind enough, was so schooled and conditioned by habit, that she’d simply turned off her car in the moments before death.

It’s almost always she, he notices. The same ones who leave behind well-organized purses and center consoles and gloveboxes, handbags he ransacks for their stores of tissues and lotion, candy and gum, painkillers and stronger prescription drugs. These are the women who keep bottled water in the cup holders, fruit rollups and energy bars in the back floorboards or seat pockets. When he is forced to switch cars, he brings everything with him, carries it in the largest handbag he’s found: a pebbled chocolate-brown satchel with a dulled gold stamp reading “kate spade.” He addresses Kate, sometimes, not just in his head but already aloud; thanks her for the water, for the lip emollients that stop his own from burning.

Even this far from big cities the sky roils with dark smoke, heavy and unsettled. He’s lost enough grace not to be able to tell what it is that’s burning, which chemicals and pollutants sift down through the air and sting his eyes and membranes inside his nose and mouth. It’s sifting away, too; he loses it by the hour—it dries up, like watching water evaporate from a puddle. I wasted time, he thinks, not with bitterness but numbly, and now doth time waste me.

(Sometimes in the cars he finds children, their gender obscured by decay. He needs to remember, tries to, that they were people, that they were just as beloved. Whatever rags the children are wearing, whatever length of hair remains on their skulls, he calls them all Mary, because that name once meant something. He unstraps them gently from their seats, arranges families together by the side of the interstate and starts the fire, leaving quickly before it can draw attention. He prays sometimes but only once he’s driving away, safe behind the wheel; sometimes tries to sing “Dies Irae” or say the קדיש, mumbles requiums under his breath, larynx hoarse, throat choking shut on the notes.)

Long ago, pressed into the clammy stone, years he spent listening enrapt to that one contralto nun, her voice like rich soft rainwater gliding over the modal syllables of “Ave, generosa,” transcendent hymns she wrote in Mary’s praise. Listened decades, half a century, until her clear skin wrinkled and she grew old, until she was not. She had something he no longer has, did he ever have it. Did humanity. Was it a thing that ever existed once, that he helped smash. Does she write psalms even now in her heaven, does she still cradle and lift into the light that glorious lucent glasslike orb of her fragile but luminous faith.

for heaven’s flood poured into you
as heaven’s word was clothed in flesh in you
you are the lily, gleaming white, upon which g-d
has fixed his gaze before all else created
around you he enwrapped his warm embrace
so that his son was suckled at your breast

He drives. He has to know, it takes days, he doesn’t sleep, doesn’t stop. Goes faster at night when he sees eyes gleaming out at him from the roadside.

And yet finally, It’s a billboard that does it, just a stupid fucking billboard, peeling and weathered, stuck out crooked from a neglected cornfield, and he pulls over because he starts laughing too hard to keep driving.

HELL IS REAL, it reads, with conviction, in uppercase block letters, white against black; and of course across the front someone has inevitably spraypainted the livid diagonal scarlet warning: CROATOAN.

He can’t help it. He watches himself break open, has watched this happen to people before, knows it’s hysteria but there is it anyway, like swallowing down nausea or gasping in fear, something bodies just do that can’t really be avoided. So he gives into it, gets himself out of the car—no one for miles, if the plague ever had been there it’s moved on—barely gets the door shut and then just folds over against it, his forehead smacking painfully hard against the glass window as his mouth presses against the bare crook of his arm, convulsing, opened and biting into skin to muffle the sounds. His shirt sleeve is torn off up high where he’d used it to bandage—bandage someone—someone who immediately didn’t make it. Wasted effort. And his own efforts wasting him.

HELL IS REAL. Hell is real! They had no idea how real. Hell is here, hell is now. He’s been to hell, spent forty years plummeting down through the worst it had to offer and it was nothing, this was infinitely worse and more wrong because this wasn’t supposed to—wasn’t meant to be hell—this was a deliberately planned paradise, and both the gardeners and their caretakers, they’d all conspired, unintentionally, through a series of colossally egotistical, blinded choices, to uproot, to defile, to spoil everything that— 

He catches his breath, reaches to wipe wetness off his face and his hand comes away filthy, streaked with soot. It’s hard to swallow, it’s hard to make his chest stop whatever it’s doing. His arm is dirty where his face rubbed it. He should use one of the bottles of water to wash, probably. Find more water.

Vaguely gray and furry, an animal darts off through the corn and the stalks quiver and rattle behind it. Eventually he’ll need to eat but he can’t think about that, not yet, not when hell is real. Hell is nearby, so proximate it throbs.

Hell is that he’s maybe an hour outside of Lebanon, with Detroit’s ruins behind him. And he is terrified—not of what he will, but of what he might not find there.

Don’t. -Donghyuk Pt. 2 (smut)

Pt.1

Group Member: Donghyuk of iKON

Request: Yooo! How would Donghyuk react if you liked them but you kinda used one of the members to make him jealous? Member of your choice! Much love! ♡♡♡♡~TheAnonie

Scenario: Eliza Edwards (you) have been crushing on Donghyuk since the two of you were eighteen. He had yet to make a move and, honestly, you were getting a little upset at this. With the help of Jiwon (Bobby), the two of you hatch a plan to see if you can stir Donghyuk’s emotions to life.

WARNINGS: SMUT WILL ENSUE. SPANKING WILL ENSUE READ AT YOUR OWN RISK.

-P.S. hey guys, there’s a difference between rough sex and abuse. If someone ever tells you “No”, don’t continue. Anything you do after that point is unwanted and is considered harassment/abuse/RAPE. Please learn about this difference. If you write smut, please don’t have any of your characters perform abusive acts (hitting, striking, hurtful hair-pulling), because there are younger viewers reading and they’ll start to think abuse/rape is equivalent to love. It’s not. Protect the younglings, please.

Honestly I try not to be salty about IH vs IR but this was just…. really hilarious to me so I’m gonna blog about it. Salt under the cut

…… or so I said, but halfway through writing this it turned into giant fucking meta about IR so what the fuck. Salty meta under the cut, I suppose, about some deliberate panelling choices, the focus of the narrative, and (apparently my favourite goddamn arc for IR) the fullbring arc vs chapter 681.

Fic: Off Target

anon prompted: Kurt getting into bed (at the loft) really late after a long day of homework or a project for vogue, and in the morning he starts to kiss Blaine’s neck and lets his hands roam and - he realizes he’s not in his own bed, but in Rachel’s.  

Canonical except for a reference to Finn being alive, PG-13, ~800 words.

Kurt slid open the loft door as quietly as he could, feeling exhausted yet victorious. He had locked himself in a study carrel at school at ten that morning with the goal of finishing his monster term paper, and fifteen hours later, he had achieved that goal just as the library was closing up for the night. All that was left for him to do was go home, take a shower, sleep for approximately three days, and submit the paper on Monday after some proofreading.

Maybe I can convince Blaine to go out for celebratory pancakes tomorrow morning, Kurt thought as he stumbled down the hallway to the bathroom. God, pancakes sound good. And sleep. I miss sleep.

He took the quickest possible shower, stifling a squeal when he walked under the spray too early and got hit right in the chest with a blast of freezing water so he wouldn’t wake Blaine or Rachel - one person being overtired in that loft was plenty. Foregoing the majority of his moisturizing routine, he slipped on his comfiest cotton pajamas and headed back down the hall, where he cuddled up next to a familiar lump in the sheets.

The last thing Kurt remembered thinking before collapsing into sleep was that Blaine’s hair didn’t smell quite right.

anonymous asked:

hey so um, I don't know if this would be too much trouble.. But. I'm a Larry shipper and I follow this blog a lot but I've also seen you talk about Ziam. And tbh I've never really focused on Ziam like I have Larry - not that I don't support them, it's just never, hit me that they're dating? But I want to support them if they are! So, could I see some Ziam proof and cute moments please? (Always worth having a new ship to die over, amirite?)
