The most important thing about your fandom experience is realizing that you’ll never quite agree with everyone. You might downright dislike others for their opinions or love them despite it.
The only thing that really matters is your relationship with the material and what you’ll make of it. Canon might be crazy stupid, it happens a lot, some people might absolutely hate your favorite character, you may never understand that, I know I never do still. But it happens.
The reality of it is it all doesn’t matter in the grand scheme of things. Everyone please take care of their own mental health, alright? Focusing on the things you hate will only take you so far, and eventually you’ll just make yourself miserable.
It’s okay to interact with the media you love in a totally unique way. And remember, if someone is hurting your space you can just block them or unfollow, or blacklist/filter words. It’s not perfect but it does help.

* open starter
It felt like an omen, that storm which was thickly brewing as the figure approached. The air tasted like rain, like thunder, like salt. Lightening flickered in the distance, and the furthest mountains started to catch a late snow. 
Either it was a warning, or an opportunity to offer shelter. Which would occur - Brunnhilde was yet to decide. Something in the figure had her on edge. Their edges were written in some other language from some other place. 
She said nothing, she just gave a look. One that said she would not be extending an olive branch or a welcome. And, upon that look, she waited for a reply.

Flash sheet ideas?
Tumblr media
Hey, I know it’s been a while and I’m terrible 😅 I’m sorry, I hope everyone is doing well…
…Anyway, I wanted to start a new chapter in my design career, and I thought I would ask you guys if there is any preferred topic for a flash sheet or tattoo designs.
I really want to put together a portfolio so I’m the future I can get a tattoo apprenticeship, so if anyway has any topic ideas (any anime, movies, tv show, even some iconic concepts, etc…) feel free to comment or drop me a message! 😊🧡

you're all i want, so much it's hurting lV
pairing: Bucky Barnes x Morse!Barton!Reader, Geralt of Rivia x Morse!Barton!Reader
summary: Bucky finally gets to speak to you.
warnings: angst, cliffhanger ending, Ciri is Geralts biological daughter.
a/n: hope you enjoy! i think there will be one more part, and maybe an epilogue, so stay tuned!
Tumblr media
Bucky really didn't feel like going out to the bar.
in truth, he didn't feel like going anywhere but his bed. he wanted to stay there, and sleep away the days until you could forgive him, and could finally admit his feelings, but Sam and Steve were relentless in their efforts to get the super soldier out of the compound for at least a few hours. Bucky eventually grew tired of their begging, and agreed to go out for a small while at least. maybe, he thought, it would give his brain some relief from thinking about how badly he fucked up with you.
he showered quickly, and dressed in a basic outfit of a grey t shirt, black jeans, and a black leather jacket, with combat boots on his feet. Steve always told him he didn't have to wear combat boots anymore, he wasn't in the army, but they reminded Bucky of a simpler time. a time before all the brain washing and pain, and a time before he ever hurt you.
he met the two men in the entry way of the compound and after Sam made fun of him for his choice of clothing that matched his mood, the trio were off to a bar.
Bucky regretted his choice the minute he stepped over the threshold into the loud bar. there were people everywhere, filling up the majority of the tables. Bucky was just about to turn to Sam and Steve and make up an excuse when his eyes drifted over to the bar and found you.
jealousy burned like lava in his stomach as he watched you talk to another guy. his eyes rake dover your back. you were wearing a yellow sundress with white and pink flowers on it. you'd left your hair natural, the way Bucky likes it, and you had brown cowboy boots on your feet, a similar style to the ones the man sitting across from you was wearing.
he had brown leather boots on, with a pair of leather pants on his legs. he had a black henley on, the material stretched across his rippling muscles that caused a twinge of envy to flow through Bucky's own body. he had shoulder length pearly white hair, that was tied half up and half down, and Bucky swore when his eyes hit the light right, they were yellow and cat like.
Steve noticed Bucky's staring, and redirected him to the table Sam had found. "who's that guy?" he asked, and Sam looked over before answering.
"i don't know. I've never seen him before, but he looks intimidating as hell." Steve chuckled, but agreed.
Bucky turned away from you and tried to focus in on the conversation Sam and Steve were attempting to have with him. a few minutes later, Bucky watched your date leave, and he approached the bar, under the pretences of getting another drink.
he rested his elbows on the bar beside you. "you sure moved on quick." he said, and you rolled your eyes.
"why do you care? you don't feel the same anyways." you spat, and took another sip of your drink.
"i never said that." Bucky explained, turning to you. "i never said that i don't feel the same. don't put words in my mouth."
you looked up in shock. "you feel the same?" you asked tentatively, and Bucky nodded, swallowing.
"i do. but it doesn't matter any more." he said, and walked away from the bar and towards the exit. you stood up and followed after it, determined to get answers.
you followed him outside. "why didn't you tell me?" you demanded, and Bucky turned to look at you with a shocked look on his face.
"are you kidding me, y/n?! why didn't i tell you?! i've been trying to tell you since you told me but i can't get two words in edgewise with you! either you're telling me to fuck off, or your dads are, and threatening me with your mom. i was going to tell you the morning after, but you were gone. i was going to have Steve help me find you, but then your dad threatened me and told me to stay away from you. i finally get to talk to you face to face, and you cut me off, and then your step dad cuts me off! i haven't been given a chance, y/n! i've been trying so damn hard to give you the space you need, but even that's not good enough!" he shouted, and you just stared at him, the lump in your throat growing.
"you say to give you time, but then you run off with the first guy who looks like a super soldier, and yet you expect me to be okay with it? how the fuck am i supposed to be okay with this? with ANY of this?!" he demanded. "it's very clear to me that you don't feel what you thought you felt for me. which is good because i can get you out of my system, and give you this." he said, fishing the box he always carried with him out of his pocket. "you can give it to that Hercules looking asshole and you can spend the rest of you life with him because clearly, i am not good enough. i never was, and never will be." he said, slapping it into your hand, and walking away without another word.
you watched him walk away, no thoughts able to form in your mind. your eyes drifted down to the black box that sat in your hand, and you opened it. when your eyes landed on the contents, you gasped.
it was the engagement ring that you had seen an instagram ad for a few weeks ago. you thought it was the most beautiful ring in the world, and you showed Bucky enthusiastically as you saved the image, with a comment of it being your new dream engagement ring.
it was an engagement ring. the words engagement ring swirled around in your head, over and over. why did he have an engagement ring for you? was he going to propose? did he really feel the same for you?
all these thoughts swirled in your head as you headed home. just as you were passing the street, your phone vibrated. you fished it out of your coat pocket and looked at the screen.
"'Geralt <3'
i had a wonderful time tonight my love'"
you shuddered slightly at the text. not that Geralt was creepy or anything. he was a perfect gentleman, and you honestly regretted not going out with him sooner.
he almost seemed to be from a different time period, or universe. you two were walking down the street a few days ago after a coffee date, and you passed an older homeless lady. you dropped a few spare coins into the cup she had, and as you turned back, you caught the tail end of Geralt's mutterings about "botchlings and wraiths."
you looked those up when you went home, but you couldn't find any information on it, so you chalked it up to mishearing him. he also seemed impressed with current technology, and spent hours trying to figure out how your apple tv remote worked, and questioned why there were tiny people trapped in the tv. you gave him a look but explained how it worked, and he understood.
other than his confusing traits, he was a gentleman. he held doors for you, he carried your purse for you, and he even defended you from some cat callers, although you had to remind them that threatening to cut their heads clean off their necks and send them home to their mothers wasn't exactly a good idea.
so, all in all, he was amazing. you'd met his daughter, Cirilla, a few days ago, and she was the sweetest little girl you'd ever met. despite losing all of her family in a car crash, she was a smiley and happy preteen, who immediately asked you if you thought Geralt was an daft dimbo like her grandmother, to which she received a slight swat on the back of her head from her father.
it had made you laugh, but you assured her that you didn't think that, and after that, she accepted you. you'd met his best friend Jaskier too, and he was a nice guy, although he talked way too much. he'd briefly mentioned an ex girlfriend named Yennefer, but you had yet to meet her, although Cirilla seemed quite fond of her.
you really liked him, but you couldn't deny your love for Bucky, especially not when you knew he loved you too, and especailly not when he was hurting. you thought about going to the compound and talking to him, but Geralt deserved a proper explanation, so you resolved to tell him another day.
all these thoughts swirled in your mind as you crossed the road, and you were so distracted you didn't see the out of control car heading towards you until it was too late.
