sometimes i blog about french musketeers, and sometimes i cry over idiot dwarf kings. sometimes i even write.
mostly, though, i like to stare at tom burke's face and pretend i don't have a problem
No, I’d say the show does a great job of representing the typical 18-34 male with Larry, with his constant need for validation, attention, and the world to revolve around him.
not to mention Bennet’s quest to prove that he’s a man, Pornstache’s overcompensation that disguises his vulnerability, Healy’s struggle to make positive change that is frustrated by his need to be loved by a woman, and Caputo’s exploration of his desire to control the world around him and whether or not he wants to do that.
men are quite accurately represented in the show, the only issue male viewers seem to have is that these men display the warped nature of man’s dominance, and the idea that their superiority is not perfect and noble is offensive.
any one have any recs for fics where thorin is insecure?
i have a mighty need

oh god i have so much to do BUT A MODERN AU IS SO WONDERFUL
kieren never fitting at roarton- always too quiet, too sarcastic, too different. having a hard time in school, rick’s own popularity not enough do him any favors. usually only talked to because guys think his sister is pretty. just- not the best of times.
his only sanctuary is the cave, and then rick leaves, too, and it just all goes to shit.
gods, just- everything goes kind of the same like in the show, except of course kieren’s dad finds him in time this time. and it results in an extended stay at the local hospital, the purchase of a few dozen new long sleeves, and a new friend in the happy and odd nurse he met while inside.
amy is a godsend, that she is.
and kieren’s recovery is so hard, like, fuck it’s difficult. his parents spend half the time ignoring anything that’s wrong, and the other half coddling him, all while not talking to him. jem is pissed as hell at him and she’s not talking to him either. and rick is still- he’s still gone.
he starts the job at the pub just to get out of the damn house.
and it’s shitty work, the patrons are mostly drunk assholes who ran with rick and are much ruder in his absence, but its an escape. and besides, amy comes by sometimes, and that’s more than enough.
ugh, except she keeps talking about this simon friend of hers who’s transferring out here to teach theology at the local college, and kieren doesn’t trust her judgement at all.
shes dating phil, after all.
and oh god, just- PUB AU. SIMON AND KIEREN MEET. KIEREN IS UNIMPRESSED. SIMON IS QUIETLY INTRIGUED, AND QUICKLY BECOMES ENAMORED.
kIEREN REMAINS UNIMPRESSED, BUT IS STILL GRUDGINGLY ATTRACTED.
literally just logged on (it’s been a hectic few days, but my brother graduated! which was awesome! :D) to say thanks for the encouragement and kind words :3
im gone for a few days and i come back to find meagan has made so many new graphics
sjhd;fkghjlhsfd THIS IS A GOOD DAY
Between the two of you, I’m getting so many new fic ideas in between fic ideas that I’m slowly working on for various kinkmeme prompts. They’re kind of meshing together, its getting confusing what ideas go with what prompts and what comes from the gorgeous photosets made by theshiningbeacon. Not that I mind. :3
thebatwiggler ~ BTW I enjoy reading your fic writing very much so. :3 The non fic posts are also enjoyable to look through.
:D :D :D
MEAGAN’S EDITS ARE GORGEOUS, YES THEY ARE. I CAN’T FLAIL ABOUT THEM ENOUGH.
also, oh dear, thanks so much :3 I kind of just ramble (apologies) but im glad you’re enjoying my tiny ficlets/headcanons :D
