I know it’s the middle of the night but can someone who is awake rn rec me a nice #deancas fanfic with a happy ending???
I have 3 I can think of quickly right now, that if you haven’t read yet you REALLY should you guys :
- March-stalkers Mighty, best destiel fantasy Au without ANY doubt, awesome chararacterization (and so many great characters!), brilliant complex plot, cute and hot, suspence action magic adventure, everything. Go read it.
- Chasing Cars : College Au, delicious perfect slow build, awesome characterization here too, sexy and romantic, with some drama but also lots of fun ! (ps just in case some don’t like that usually, the stripper part is quite minimal so please try it anyway you won’t regret it)
- PWP, Pie Without Plot, has actually a great plot, canon divergent and chronologically (and narratively) interesting. Same awesome characterization (awesome OCs too !! TRACY tgzfdj), hilarious and adorable, and hot and very sad at some point but what a good ending.
The Best Pictures Of This Year’s Japanese Cherry Blossoms
The Japanese cherry blossom, known as the Sakura in Japanese, is the flower of a cherry tree that is cultivated for its decorative features rather than for cherries (it doesn’t bear fruit). The overwhelming beauty of the cherry blossom bloom has been known and adored for ages. The blooming period is associated with Japanese traditions, culture, aesthetics, and is a bittersweet metaphor for the ephemeral nature of life itself.
The blooming cherry blossoms herald the beginning of the centuries-old Hanami festival – the traditional Japanese custom of picnicking under trees rich with flowering Sakura branches and enjoying this short but striking first breath of spring. The blossoming wave usually starts in Okinawa in January or February and progresses through all of Japan until April or May. The cherry blossom front (Sakura zensen) can be conveniently tracked every year using this calendar.

Stargate SG1, season 10 - “200”
To an extent it’s a problem with fandom: the fact is that you’ve got thousands of intelligent people thinking about a problem, and statistically speaking some of them are likely to come up with something more clever than the creators. […] There comes a point at which, frankly, fandom IS better than the creators. We have more minds, more cumulative talent, more voices arguing for different kinds of representation, more backstory… The thing is that I rarely get involved with a show without a fandom anymore, because I actually enjoy the analysis and fic and fun more than I enjoy the show itself. Similarly, I get drawn into shows I otherwise wouldn’t really consider by the strength of their fandom. And I want the shows to live up to their fandom, but it’s an almost impossibly high bar, because the parts of fandom I choose to engage with are often parts that wouldn’t be considered sufficiently accessible or relevant to a majority of viewers. So… basically, for me, fandom is primary, and canon is secondary. The latter is really only there to facilitate the former.

#this is the first time i’ve really articulated this #and i was quite pleased with it #this is the thing: i care so much less about original material than i do about fanworks
Legal Drug to be re-released in Omnibus form; Drug & Drop will have its first English release.
Guys, this is very important. If you’re Drug&Drop fan (and if you’re seeing this post there’s a good chance that you are) support CLAMP by purchasing actual volumes, be it in Japanese, English or any other localization of your preference. Our scanlations are purely fan made. We’re not professionals. We work with scans from magazines and they tend to have low quality print on a paper that bears uncanny resemblance to phone book. By purchasing actual volumes you get:
- translation and editing done by actual professionals
- various references and terms explained in translation notes
- high quality print
- hard copy of the manga that you can caress fondly before sleep
Remember that to publisher popularity of manga is measured in copies sold, not pageviews.
We will continue scanlating Drug&Drop, but starting January 7, 2015 every chapter will contain a notice urging you to buy official release.
YES ! I’d like to point out that in France we already have the first two volumes, that they released the first one last JUN (and the second one only a little over month or so after Japan !), and that they did a good job with the text as they usually do with Clamp’s stuff. Covers are pretty and are great to the touch also. All to say that it’s because they knew people were going to buy them here, that they are doing a good and quick job.;)
