So I went down to the river of insufferable sins Lord I tried but the water wouldn’t let me come in Too many lives have been broken There’s too much blood on my hands There ain’t no water in this world could turn me back into an innocent man
As much as it pains me to say, the unplanned two weeks off tumblr were a welcome break. I really like this site and I’m not ready to give it up just yet, but the real life is gaining on me and I’m afraid the time has come to finally do something about all the anxiety breakdowns I’ve had had over the last two months. And by “something” I mean “start doing something with my life and make some plans for the future”.
I’m not deleting my tumblr, nor am I going on hiatus or quitting fandom life. I’m just trying to cut down on my tumblr time and part of it is unfollowing a bunch of you. Sorry. You’re all wonderful people and your blogs are generally very good, but I really need to get my shit together and stop having crying fits on my kitchen floor.
So, to all of you I’ve unfollowed: goodbye, it’s been great and have a good life, I guess.
One of the most delicate story premises in existence is a villain changing their ways. Depending on how well it’s handled, it can be one of the most beautiful, thought-provoking stories in existence or out-of-character garbage - and, unfortunately, I’ve encountered far too much of the latter. To the point where I have to speak out and say, “Y’ALL BITCHES ARE DOIN’ IT WRONG.” This guide is primarily for fanfiction, but if you’re planning an original work, you’ll probably be to take something away from this.
if you’re ever trying to get to know a person on a date or whatever, find out when they like to get to the airport. i guarantee it speaks volumes about them. some people know they have a flight at eleven and go, “should i go get breakfast beforehand? i have my boarding pass on my phone, right?” others are like, “i have a car coming to get me at 4:30. i don’t know how long it’ll take to check in and walk down two hallways, better give myself six hours. what? dinner the night before? i can’t. i’m in a whole other mindset right now. i have two hard copies of my boarding pass, i emailed it to myself, i have it on my phone, it’s also tattooed to my chest.”
i really like the idea of a fantasy setting but in modern times. elves on smart phones and taking pictures for their instagram. dwarves getting into console wars and calling each other casual gamers. mages casting dangerous spells for the vine. i want it.
"Dude I dunno, necromancy is pretty fucked up." "Do it for the vine."
no matter what im doing at least 10% of my brain capacity is perpetually dedicated to imagining oscar wilde on social media. oscar wilde on twitter. oscar wilde on tumblr. oscar wilde on grindr. opening a snapchat from oscar wilde. can you imagine.
headcanon that night vale has its own version of “breaking bad,” only instead of being about a chemistry teacher who cooks meth it’s about a sheriff’s secret police officer who bakes illegal wheat and wheat by-products. it’s called “baking bad.”
The moon was booked to appear in this poem,
But due to stress
Countless appearances in sonnets and haiku,
It’s going to be difficult to express how much
I like you.
It’s been holding it’s breath
And turning blue,
Once in a while.
Smiling for children,
Styling the tide.
A backlog of allusions to deal with.
Feelings to justify.
It’s done very well for a lump of white rock,
With a peak time slot in the night sky,
Sharing top billing with it’s straight man, the sun, The best double act
in kingdom not come.
Mystified and delighted
With the interest shown
And people alone.
But at the last minute NASA phoned
And bumped up the residuals,
So your poem’s been postponed.
I’m sorry.”—David Thewlis
a murderous drug lord is miraculously cured of cancer and decides to turn his life around. he uses his extensive knowledge of meth cookery to become a chemistry teacher and help young people discover the wonder of science
fake!married is the best trope and i never tire of it no matter how many are written and how badly they end up being. undercover!married is even better. “we have to lull our adversary into complacency by being as MARRIED AS POSSIBLE.”
