I have succeeded at donuts, if not photography.

Or Tumblring. SORRY. 

Reblog if you have read fan fiction better than some published books

Help me prove a point

I have never reblogged anything faster.

Unfortunate for the books, but speaks loads about the quality of some fan fics

Oh, hell yeah. Anything by incandescens can stand on my bookcase any time.

Better than a LOT of published books, in fact.

Accepting rebuke, he relapsed into silence, while she studied his half-averted face. Considered generally, as a facade, it was by this time tolerably familiar to her, but now she saw details, magnified as it were by some glass in her own mind. The flat setting and fine scroll-work of the ear, and the height of the skull above it. The glitter of close-cropped hair where the neck-muscles lifted to meet the head. A minute sickle-shaped scar on the left temple. The faint laughter-lines at the corner of the eye and the droop of the lid at its outer end. The gleam of gold down on the cheekbone. The wide spring of the nostril. An almost imperceptible beading of sweat on the upper lip and a tiny muscle that twitched the sensitive corner of the mouth, the slight sun-reddening of the fair skin and its sudden whiteness below the base of the throat The little hollow above the points of the collarbone.
He looked up; and she was instantly scarlet, as though she had been dipped in boiling water. Through the confusion of her darkened eyes and drumming ears some enormous bulk seemed to stoop over her. Then the mist cleared. His eyes were riveted upon the manuscript again, but he breathed as though he had been running.

If you don't mind me asking -- what exactly is your stance on the independence referendum taking place tomorrow? Do you support a side? Given your interest in Ireland, Scotland and Wales, I'm rather intrigued. :)

I don’t think dreamy romantic Americans who majored in 14th century Scottish history and played the bagpipes competitively and once earned an A in a forgery/ history class for forging a medieval document supporting Scottish nationalism and exist 3,000 miles away from the social and economic Scottish reality are allowed to have an opinion, because any time that idealism outweighs gritty actual experience, sit down and watch before you hurt yourself or other players.

Which is to say, I have an opinion, but it is dandelion fluff in comparison to the legitimate opinions of people who live in Scotland. I wish them a sure journey and I think it’s going to work either way; change is needed, and this is only one option.

Bully messes with karate champ. [video]

The source video is very, very worth watching. A few things to point out:
The young woman in the dark coat is continually trying to escape from the man. She has spoken to him, she’s pulled away, she’s even tried to walk away before he dragged her back. She hit him as a last resort but it didn’t do anything, he just got more aggressive.
The girl in the white jacket was walking by, recognized that a bad situation was happening, stopped, and intervened. At 0:28 she calls the man out, and continues to call him out until he breaks off attacking the young woman in the dark coat and turns his aggression on her. At which point she defends herself—and then she escorts the young woman in the dark coat safely away.
This is a hero.

The woman in the white jacket is Olga Ivanova, taekwondo world champion. That kick must have hurt like hell.

Tae Kwon Do Champion. You fucked up, bro.

HA! Loser.

I'M JUMPING ON THIS AU FIC TRAIN BEFORE IT LEAVES THE STATION. Ryouma/Katsuko, top models.

gunmetal-blue:

Katsuko sees Ryouma again during a shoot in Hong Kong; they pose like a king and queen draped in glittering silks and jewels, gazing into each others’ eyes as the cameras click-click around them. His hand is warm at the dip of her waist, fingernails just barely grazing the bare skin beneath the hem of her shirt. Katsuko tucks her face into the curve of his throat, where concealer can’t quite hide the fading marks of her teeth, and smiles at the way his breath hitches.
