protect young girls at all costs
I am mesmerized by boys who wear their hair in buns
"There’s the kid we know and love? And then there’s the motherfucker between the poles." Shitty shrugged. "I dunno, Bits. You gotta be a lil’ nutty to get in the cage."
hmmmm I wanna sign up for the holiday exchange but im afraid to commit…what if I don’t find the time to do it… what if my hands cant make good art………
also hey if u know what song theyre jamming to, let me know!! I could always use some more music
My vote is “Shake it Off” by Taylor Swift. Bitty just loves him some Swifty. Lardo started off liking her ironically in a guilty pleasure way, but she’s figured out that liking things ironically is just silly and if you like something, you just like it. Shitty has a lot of thoughts about Taylor’s emerging journey into feminism, especially in the greater context of young women and popular culture, but also he just HAS to dance to it. Rans has only ever heard that “we are never ever ever” song but this shit is catchy as hell. Holster begrudgingly admits it’s good, hey, it’s pretty good, actually. Jack thought Taylor Swift was a country singer and fifteen years old. Is there more than one Taylor Swift?
Also, you should sign up! This art is absolutely wonderful and I’m sure you could and would be a valuable part of the exchange. No pressure of course, but it’d be swawesome to have you!
northerndownpour replied to your post:tell me about the fic you wished existed. what do you wish you were reading rn?ALL THOSE CHECK PLEASE FICS. ALL OF THEM.
welllllll i did sign up for swawesomesanta so any of these could potentially exist in the world depending on matchups.
johnson buys a big whiteboard, copies the list out faithfully, and then checks each one off as it happens
listen if swawesomesanta ends up being Johnson’s own personal advent calendar, I won’t even be mad about it.
(thanks for signing up!!!! it’s going to be so great!)
Bucky gets flirty after missions especially when Steve’s gotten a little cut up, but he did a really good job punching out nazis today and he just wants to make Cap feel all better. YouNah’w’aMean? ;)
If I had the power, I would ask all the authors in the world to do Yuletide or something like it every year. Sign up for a fic exchange and write some porn for a stranger; tailor your stories to an audience of one, let go of the long-form plots and the careful wide-spectrum appeal, embrace the joy of spending a hundred words on Carlos’s perfect hair or Buffy’s perfect shoes or Jo’s perfect knives. Remember the joy of waiting for one person to open a story and see what it contains.
Because fanfic is joy. Fanfic is fixing the things you see as broken, and patching the seams between what’s written and what is not, and giving characters who got cheated out of their happy endings another chance. There was a time, not that long ago as we measure things, where all fiction was what we would now call “fan fiction.” Shakespeare didn’t come up with most of his own plots. He wrote plays about the stories people already loved. We didn’t get a thousand versions of “Snow White” accidentally: people changed that story to suit themselves, and no one said they weren’t storytellers, or looked down on them for loving that core of red and black and white, of apples and glass and snow.
