    @sicklexclaws asked :  Three words to describe Rekka? That wasn't the easiest thing given a lot of words came to mind when thinking about the rebel, though few were pleasant and even fewer were charming. "He's grim. Definitely not the friendliest fellow I've ever crossed paths with." Oscar commented while rubbing at an older burn absent-mindedly. Despite his seemingly gloomy nature, the older man did seem to have a strange sense of humour what with having called him a waterfowl once, causing Oscar's lips to twist into a smirk. So rude. "I mean, don't get me wrong. He's a criminal but an interesting man all the same. I just wonder what happened to make somebody like that so... so harsh?"

    Three words.

    #// bkfnbs rekka would be rather suprised at this tbh not only the description but the curiosity in general #// not gonna lie ive read this many times in my inbox cause adorable quq

    Quran (96:3)

    จงอ่านเถิด และพระเจ้าของเจ้านั้นผู้ทรงใจบุญยิ่ง

    پڑھو ، اور تمہارا رب بڑا کریم ہے

    Bumasa ka samantalang ang Panginoon mo ay ang Napakamapagbigay.

    Läs! Din Herre är den Främste Givaren.

    Читай, ведь твой Господь - Самый великодушный.

    Oku! Rabbin, en büyük kerem sahibidir.

    Lis! Ton Seigneur est le Très Noble.

    بخوان، و پروردگارت (از همه) بزرگوار‌تر است.

    Bacalah, dan Tuhanmulah Yang Mahamulia.

    #the drafts i have are for several fandoms as well actually #there's some soy luna stuff as well as gravity falls oneshots but also original work #one miraculous multichapter as well #that's like the major things that come to my mind rn #and another difficulty is to find a balance between reading and writing #i still have to catch up on 2 fics #4 actually oops #and then i have to read more physical books as well #i'm in a bookclub and I'm very behind with reading currently #however thanks so much for your ask!!! #i loved answering it and it also gave me the chance to write a little statement on how things look in general #and why my writing is progressing rather slow atm #i hope you understand!

    it's been a couple of days since I watched 'first contact' now, but I am still haunted by the definite vibe through that whole thing that jigen's laser focus on taking down lupin is like... either he's trying to kill lupin because lupin is the first thing that's made him feel anything in a long time (true 'I just felt like destroying something beautiful' undertones lol, also worth noting that the red of lupin's blood on the broken window is the first time any kind of strong colour is introduced to jigen's 'world' in that first scene), he's trying to use lupin as the proverbial sword to fall on in a roundabout way he won't have to acknowledge to himself or the world, or he's going for a gambit where he's betting on both sides of the coin and the outcome doesn't matter, because either he will take down lupin and return to the unbearable grey soulless perfection of being the world's best gunman tm, undefeated, or he won't be around to have to feel it anymore, and either way I think he'd end up about the same level of spiritually dead inside.

    and then lupin just keeps doing absolutely WILD yet non-violent shit in response every time they meet after that until he startles awake from that deadened state enough to realize those are not his only options. lupin literally clowned jigen back to life. inspirational

    #like there's Stuff percolating in my head about this I want to write the full Gay version of this lol #(by the movie's own admission the narrative had been filtered to try and seduce a lady they gave me the leeway) #lupin iii#daisuke jigen #jigen x lupin #this fed into a lot of the thematic stuff that's in my feels about jigen so like my head and my heart is full #I forgot he actually even tells lupin to 'go first' during their duel as well jesus christ I don't think it's a very subtle thing #also I know. I know that this series cannot stand up to a close reading the vast majority of the time. but I do think #it might just be significant that at the beginning jigen shoots at a fake hollow representation of a 'sexy lady' #and a dude jumps out of there who goes on to light his cigarettes and generally be the item of obsession lol #me in academic voice: you see lupin's inflatable sexy lady disguise is a symbol of compulsive heterosexuality. this man is gay #I do love how INVENTIVE lupin is in this one tho with all his tinkering and little gadgets #also his partner courtship is so dogged and earnest haha that scene where they drive past the federal gold reserve?? #telling him about his DREAM which is what they do at the end of the movie? 'I know I could nail it if it was with you'?????? #this poor dude he's trying so hard to scrape together a found family while everyone's wanting to kill each other #may I also mention the inexplicable cherry blossoms during jigen and goemon's duel. like what am I supposed to do with this #watch this movie. goemon cuts lightning in half. some real shitty depictions of black people at one point tho be warned #also some brief gross stuff with fujiko but like. *sigh* what else is new

    i haven’t had my hair cut since before the pandemic by anything other than my clippers and my own two hands, so i do greatly appreciate how efficiently the stylist at the salon today was able to interpret my exact wishes from a very exhausted “i’m a dyke, just help me look sophisticated and clean”

    #tipped her generously of course #thank you ma'am for reading my mind and also touching my neck and scalp #basically being the first human being to touch me kindly in a year #much appreciated #dairy.txt

    If I’m being honest, I’m starting to get more annoyed by this “we love this character more than you” thing that’s been going on more than the actual accusation that we don’t like x character as much as they think we do. Why is it a fucking competition about who likes what character more and why is it used as a moral argument? To make your side look better in a ship war? It’s annoying, it doesn’t make you look good, it makes people not wanna bother participating in the fandom because it’s just petty drama every few days over opinions on fictional characters.

    On the actual Emerie argument: gwynriels, Valkyrie stans, regardless of what you identify your opinions to align with, with reason, you’re allowed to have any opinion you want on her character and how she was written just like with any other character (though I agree with the idea that some arguments do cross some lines, but a discussion can be had on those). You’re allowed to produce any amount of content you want on her just like with any other character, because when we read the books we all gravitate towards liking and disliking different parts of it. If you like e/riel, gwynriel, whatever, that’s your opinion, but for the love of god stop acting like your ship or stan of certain characters gives you some kind of moral superiority over others. Sometimes, it’s not that deep, and not everything is a personal attack or warrants personally attacking someone.

    #originally this was a reblog for one of my mutuals but I think that it came off as me having beef with her post #when I was actually just speaking very generally and directly at anything #so tl avoid getting her post into unnecessary conflicts due to how my reblogged seemed to frame it #and to not make it seem like I was criticizing the things she posts which was not my inentions #I’m making this a more general individual post #I am obviously a little biased when I say all this and do fall into these traps sometimes #but this ship war is getting annoying #can we please go back to the idea that when we make posts we are doing it with the intention of being spreading opinions— #—and not throwing bricks at other people #you can have differing opinions from others and you can have criticisms and that is fine #can we please just normalize reading posts without the view that the other person is trying to say something against us as individuals #lowkey essay in the tags #rant #don’t know how coherent I was in this #fandom bs

    hello contemporary fiction writers, beside you is a pen and paper. in five hundred words or less explain your decision to not use quotation marks without using the words ‘modern’ or ‘ambiguity’

    #sending all my peace and love to that one person on tiktok i saw scribbling in quotation marks into normal people #im reading the lowland by jhumpa lahiri and. i just hate it; my head hurts these characters dont have super strong voices and #i feel like its taking me out of the historical setting with obviously modern prose #vicky.txt #also my head just hurts in general

    CHENFORD WEEK 2021 | DAY 6

    ↳ song you associate with them

    “And now I see that it’s you I needed all along” If I Didn’t Have You — by BANNERS
    #the rookie#lucy chen#tim bradford#chenford#chenfordweek21#chenfordedit #sooo i tried color for the first time #i still don't know how i feel about it but i need something to post lol #THANK YOU SO SO MUCH LENA FOR HELPING ME WITH THIS!!😊😊 #i started with red because when we met tim he was all hurt and closed off (and angry?) because of isabel #and did a gradient to yellow because lucy slowly broke down his walls and became a light in his life #and she’s just a ray of sunshine in general lol #anyways that’s just my attempt at some simple symbolism. it’s not my strong suit😅 #i really struggled picking the song too because i don't usually associate songs with certain things #unless it's something that played during a significant moment and i just happen to remember it #(like “dare you to move” during naley’s first kiss in oth) #but when i went through my playlist the lyrics of this one kinda reminded me of chenford #and now i’ll forever associate this song with them #sorry these tags are so long💀💀 #if you've read this far you should go check out BANNERS they have great songs!!👀👌🏼 #the rookie 1x01 #the rookie 2x11 #the rookie 1x18 #the rookie 3x14 #mine #mine: the rookie

    #since i started writing i have found myself analyzing characters i read to figure out how to make my own characters likeable #how to prevent them from being characters who are obviously supposed to be likeable but who just aren't #interesting to consider real world examples too. it just makes me think of my dad specifically? #a lot of the time it's hard to tell if my dad is being serious or joking because he's joking so often but at the same time #he's the biggest role model in my life. he's taught me a lot about being a person and an adult and dealing with other people #and handling life in general #i have an uncle who's ''funny'' to the point of obnoxious (quotes included because he thinks he's funny and i disagree) #and i can hardly stand being around him long at all but for some reason in the practical sense i feel safe around him #i don't want to spend my free time with him because he's Obnoxious but i would trust him to protect me or someone important to me #character traits and how they go together are really interesting to me #i don't know what it is that makes this character not interesting though #ask#christian-latte-anon #oh man i just checked and he's in the next meme i have queued

    Hi everyone! While I’m not doing a full-on hiatus, I just wanted to let everyone know that, starting September 28, through potentially about November 13, Missa ( @eiiskonigin​ / @varnaedhar​ ) is coming to visit me!  It’ll be only the second time I’ve seen her in the past 18 months, so I’m pretty excited!  
    What that means is that my activity may dip a bit, and I’ll probably try to actually USE my queue instead of live-posting things.  So I might start tossing things into my queue today, getting through some stuff that’s still in my inbox, along with replies. Definitely feel free to still send me memes; I may just toss the answers into my queue instead!
    #★ General || OOC ★ Malaprops: of or concerning Mal / in an inopportune way #★ General || PSA ★ Extra! Extra! Read all about it! #[I'll reblog this a few times to make sure everyone sees it. ^^]

    🍯 i am being mushy in the tags feel free to scroll past 🍯

    #that last reblog has me thinking about zach and how early on i confided in him that i shut down when men yell at or around me #and he simply stated that he’d never do that because he’d never want to make me feel that way #or how we were on the phone the night before last and he was reading an email i’d sent and he was sort of mumbling under his breath #and i said i liked his reading noises and he said ‘i didn’t wanna read it word for word out loud because i know you don’t like that so i’m #just doing it under my breath’ #i don’t even remember ever saying that to him but i guess he just remembers that i cringe at having my words read back to me! #or how i made a joke one time about making a spreadsheet for something trivial and he said ‘that would be THE most bea-sim thing ever’ #or how whenever he types my name he always capitalizes it properly even though we type in all lowercase everywhere else #or just how gentle he is with me in general #like how when i told him about my struggles with physical intimacy within the first week-ish of us talking #because i wanted him to be aware and also if it was a dealbreaker i didn’t want to get too invested #and he was so instinctually nonchalant about it; not in a dismissive or minimizing way but in a ‘why would that ever be a dealbreaker!’ way #i’m gonna cry LMAOOO #and i know i talk a lot about this. maybe it gets old. but this is how i process stuff! #z
