This just keeps happening for some reason
I might need to start believing in fate, because it seems like it is my fate to constantly run into, and having to deal with, recently unhinged lunatics. And not charming ones, either, but those that actually approaches you with really, really ill intent and makes your skin crawl. I am seriously starting to feel like by the end of next week someone is going to have been arrested. If no one is...
Anders' Alphabet - H Is For Hope
Some mages are able to grow content with life in the Circle, but Anders is not one them, never one to settle for merely being content. Or simply waiting and hoping for change to happen. Doing nothing but hoping for freedom is useless; it is not something anyone is ever going to give to him. Life is not a fairytale where he can sit in his tower and wait for a handsome knight in shining armour to...
Not all feelings are good ones
I am really, really happy that you are happy for me, for the election. I want to just, hug everyone and be happy together. And I am really happy that things ended up like they did, that I got to feel the way I did. I will need to hold on to that feeling, that feeling of I can do this, and remember that I can do things, handle things and that people believe in me, because I have a really rough time...
I feel like I have won a boss battle
I have been uncharacteristically quiet for a while. The last preparations for the show and the board meeting took a lot out of me. I talked with the insurance company, too. Three people from it. And no one knew about that rule, and what to do. Three of them had absolutely no idea of the company’s policies regarding this. So someone will call me tomorrow and, hopefully, have some kind of...
I am at my limit
I am going to heap my love on you all, but first, before I break, here is something I do not love. Insurance companies. This week has been a bad, bad one. And things just keep piling up. Every day is worse than the last. So of course a bunch of expensive model horses had to take a tumble and break in so many pieces. Luckily, I have them insured! Or so I thought. I was very careful when choosing...
You have been such a positive force in my life since I came to this fandom, and you are also a large part of why I am even here. You were so welcoming when I first arrived, and your encouragement and kind words helped me so much, to find myself a place among you all and to find the courage to interact and to contribute. You have helped me to grow as a person, to become more confident in myself and...
I am not really in an emotional state where I am able to put my feelings into words very well, so I just, thank you for your support and kind words and soul hugs and offers for shoulders to cry on and just, everything. I am so glad you are here. I have no idea what to do with myself because bad things just, keeps happening and piling up (of course four resins had to break today, of course, and of...
My medication completely backfired today. It was already not a good one as I broke down too much last night, and I am disturbed by how just one message from my father can break me so much, how so many things he says can strip so many years away from me, and suddenly I am once more a terrified tangle of anger and fear. I forgot about posting what I should, because I was so trapped in it and now I...
Warnings [DA/FFXII Crossover Adventure]
Because jabberart and I are both very, very wicked. Karl stared down at his tea, looking much more miserable than Balthier did, but only because Balthier did not know what was in store for him. At the moment, it all probably only seemed slightly unexpected and rather dull. “Now, Balthier, was it?” Wynne asked, hands around her teacup. “Penelo is a very young girl, did you know? Very charming,...
sakuratsukikage: I agree with all of these points. I do get that there are legitimate reasons for making this kind of decision—and I hope they get that decent development cycle of DAIII, as well. I, too, would take a more complete, better game over more DLC. But … it worries me, and I’m just … upset for what I could have had. So pretty much, I agree with everything stated above? Yes, like...
Face your daylight horrors!: So about those news →
barbeauxbot: The way I see it: while there are those of us who are vocal fans, I don’t think we’re in the majority. The production cycle on DA2 was such a mess and it’s obvious from the quality of the DLC the sort of work the team is capable of. If they’ve been offered a chance at a decent development cycle for DA3 in exchange for dropping whatever other DLC concepts they had planned, I don’t...
So about those news
They are making me feel like to them, the fans do not matter as much as the critics. The fans who are the ones spending the money, and are still talking about the game a year later, who have been eagerly awaiting each new DLC, who are still speculating about the characters and possibilities, starting all kinds of creative memes and ways to explore the characters more, to enjoy the characters...
Fic: Convalescence (Anders/Garrett Hawke)
impressioniste: This fic is a gift, but the gift requires a bit of elaboration/explanation: Every day I come on tumblr and check my dash, and I see people suffering. Some of you seem to be suffering alone, some of you have support from friends, or family, or online support. Some of you prefer to suffer in silence or try your best to be strong, but you’re suffering just the same. Some of you...
Suddenly, new energy
I have been so sad over the lack of snow, but now! Now it is snowing! TAKE THAT, SPRING! Winter, I never stopped believing in you, not really! Please stay for months!
Wildflower [Karl being deflowered in a wardrobe]
She stands out from the other apprentices even as they are all dressed the same. She moves with a grace the others lack, forever noticed as she walks through the hallways. He, like so many others, cannot take his eyes off her. It is not because of the gentle curve of her breasts or hips, how she so clearly has them and a waist in between, noticable even in ill-fitting robes. Is it not about how...
Stabbed in the back and front and sides
This will be a post of bad feelings due to intense uterus stabbings (uterus this is not acceptable behaviour, stabbing me all over, please stop) and the fear of bad memories and people. I will come to the conclusion that while many have it worse, this still feels all bad, but that somehow I will make things work because that is what I do. And then back to writing about virgins (and yes for some...
There is no .gif to describe the face I am making
My reaction to reading US news is, disturbingly often, “oh my goodness what get out of there if you can because what”. I do not think that everything about the US is bad; clearly there are lots of terrific people living there, for example. Good people, and just people in general who are not legit insane politicians or child murderers. But I still get freaked out by your news on a daily...
ohmyroses: I know I said my last post would be the last for a while but this is too important not to write about. If you can watch and get excited about a 30 minute video about Ugandan children, you can take 10 minutes of your time to educate yourself about Trayvon Martin. On February 26th, Trayvon Martin - a 17 year old boy - was murdered by a neighborhood watchman in a gated community in...
LI HAS BEEN PRONOUNCED CANCER FREE!
She has been through the surgery and been scanned and they could not find anything, so the doctors thinks that she will be fine! There will be bringing out of champagne to celebrate, of course. I will not drink any since that would be very, very bad with all my medicine, but I am feeling the champagne mood. I am so, so relieved. GO LI!
Help marriage equality in Australia →
triptophobia: ameliaalice: The Australian federal government is considering amending the marriage amendment to legalize marriage equality. The government has put up a public survey. It is very short and easy. Australia could become the next country to enact marriage equality nationwide. All anyone needs to participate in the survey is an email address. Please complete the survey (just answer...

Fake Justice-Anders Awakening!Banters for defira85
impressioniste: JUSTICE: I have reached a new conclusion regarding your… pet. ANDERS: Not another lecture on the injustices of kitten enslavement, I hope? JUSTICE: I do not ‘lecture’. I simply address the injustice that I observe. ANDERS: Sounds like lecturing to me. JUSTICE: I did not come here to engage in an argument over semantics. ANDERS: Well, what did you come for? The pleasure of my...
About appropriate gifts
jabberart: I know seriously. People out in the real world are so freaking weird. So glad I live on the internet with people who appreciate gifts of lewd, sexual acts :3 I know right? When they are sad and you give them pictures of cats hugging kittens, they almost seem confused. It is very strange. Yes, this is the place to be :3
About appropriate gifts
defira85: My mother didn’t like the photos I gave her for Christmas… Did you explain that you are from the internet, and that is how we do things? It is how we show appreciation!
Exiles All The Longer [1/15]
serindrana: . [1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 :: Ao3] . Seeking to forget makes exile all the longer; the secret of redemption lies in remembrance. -Richard von Weizsaecker . Chapter 1 .

About appropriate gifts
One thing that is so freaking awesome with the internet is that if you have terrific conversations with people and bond over characters and things, and you like them and think they are really splendid, it is completely appropriate to draw/write them some porn. As a gift, just for them, and good feelings are had by all. While out in the fleshy world, if you hand people specialised porn tapes or...
combination-nc asked: Karl/Niall, though...
msbarrows: It was rare for Karl to win one of their chess contests, at least when a forfeit was involved. He sometimes suspected that Niall was actually a much better chess player than he, and allowed him to win a few times when nothing more than their mutual entertainment was involved. His theory was that such an action would lull him into a false sense of accomplishment, and make him more...

anonymouscatastrophe: He’s not really sure how this happened, but for some reason he’s stranded on the Citadel with a perpetual tourist and a geth wearing a scrap of someone else’s armor. “Ooh, Karl, look! Pigeons! I didn’t know they had pigeons on the Citadel! But what are those tufts on their heads? Do space pigeons wear fluffy hats?” “They’re robots, Merrill.” He scrubs his hand over...

anonymouscatastrophe: I’m spamming you guys with this, aren’t I? This is just so much fun to do, though… …I want in. Karl has his very own ask blog, though! People ask him sex question a fair bit, for some reason (but he is very polite about answering them). And a1879 made him an avatar because she is awesome like that.
But I have a doctor's note!!
stfuconservatives: AZ Doctor’s Note Bill for Birth Control Nikki says: The Arizona State Senate Judiciary committee passed HB 2625 yesterday. It requires women who want their employer to cover perscription birth control supply a doctor’s note saying that they are taking it for health reasons. Seriously. Disgusted. Please sign my change.org petition and let AZ know that women can’t be...
It might be inappropriate in either case
So I was happily typing away, writing yet another story that involves virgins (it just keeps happening to me for some reason, apparently I cannot write about souvenir collecting without someone losing their virginity), when it hit me. We should totally have a deflowering virgins theme week. Am I just being inappropriate again, or is that like the best idea ever?
First Impressions [Karl, Duncan, Cailan] →
djkaeru: combination-nc: This is for the sweet djkaeru, who played with the prompt generator and got this: Karl Thekla/Cailan Theirin - Not the first time, nor the last. And I went, hmm yes! It was rare for a mage to be let out of the tower and thus an event to be treasured, and while Karl had dearly wished to be out of it he would have liked it to be under different circumstances. Not like...
Those hats look like the mating display of the Tevinter peacock or something.– sakuratsukikage’s accurate description of the Circle mage hats. Seriously those things.
So apparently that is my Fenders kink: civilised conversation.– combination-nc From a related discussion on the hilarity of their portmanteau. (via cherith) Other people like bondage and shapeshifting and things, but I am all, ooh civilised conversation, ooh. Ooh talk to each other like actual adults, yes talk, ooh!
