It’s good to be as true to the characters as possible! I don’t know what happened but fic is sad ;-;

It is, but I also see the point in just writing what you want sometimes.  Both are good in their own ways.  ^_^

The idea behind this is so incredibly complex that I can’t really explain it without writing an essay on the importance of this bloody knife.  I’d rather not do that here, but suffice to say that Light is Hope’s second mom/big sister/best friend, and when she disappears at the same time as two of their other friends, no one takes it well.  The only thing Light leaves behind is this knife that her sister gave her, and that she in turn loaned Hope when they got to know each other, but Hope doesn’t keep it and gives it to Light’s sister Serah instead.  He then goes on to take over the research capital/government of the world by the time he’s twenty.  Makes the rest of us smart people look bad, smh.

Can we all please take a moment to appreciate Hagrid here? Seriously, everyone always talks about how Harry has no father figure and how terrible it was for Sirius to die because now Harry’s all alone (dont get me wrong, Sirius is my favorite character) but honestly, Hagrid is the best father Harry ever had. He did so much for him, and no one, sometimes not even Harry realizes that. Hagrid gets no where near the mount of credit he deserves. Take a minute and try to imagine where Harry would be with out him and you’ll understand what im talking about.

I think JKR said it was really important to her that Hagrid carried him out of the forest, because he carried him to safety when he was a baby. Hagrid has been there since the beginning, and he was also there at the culmination of Harry’s journey. He’s always cared SO MUCH and been really open with Harry for the most part, which is something Harry needs since people tend to keep secrets from him. Yeah, he’s irresponsible with the monsters, but all of Harry’s father figures were pretty irresponisble, and Hagrid was definitely like, the most solid and reliable out of all of them. And he never left.

im crying

Hagrid was also most like a parent in his correction of Harry. For Sirius and Molly, Harry could do no wrong. Dumbledore saw Harry’s flaws, but he depended on them for his own plans to work.

But Hagrid saw Harry for exactly who he was, good and bad. He was the first to publicly defend Harry’s innocence anytime he got blamed for something he didn’t do; but he was also the first to call Harry out on his treatment of Hermione in PoA. He is consistently honest and forthright in addressing Harry’s behaviour and choices, and always acts in the way he believes will be best for Harry’s growth and especially for his moral development.

Harry is the man he is because of Hagrid. No one else did that for him. 

Awesome point, awesome awesome.

I also think that everyone forgets how much Hagrid went through as well.  I mean yes Sirius was falsely put in Azkaban but Hagrid was denied his magic, expelled from school and could only get a job working in a school full of people who could do magic. Hagrid couldn’t really work in the muggle world very well, what with being half giant. Yet he never grumbled, he was so kind. Plus he was so gentle and sweet. Not many people could become best friends with an enormous spider and actually care for it. Hagrid cared about everybody and everything, not just Harry even after everything that had happened to him.

RUBEUS HAGRID APPRECIATION LIFE.

I assume that you have written at least one fanfic in a final fantasy game (not kh) and I'm not sure if I've seen it yet

Technically yes, it is true that I have written one (actually two) fics for FFXIII.  It is also true that you have not seen either of them because I have not posted either of them, lol.  I’m still in the toddler stage of fic writing for the XIII trilogy, and while I like what I wrote, I don’t think it functions well in light of canon relationships and whatnot.

BUT I LIKE YOU SO HAVE A FREEBIE EVEN IF YOU HAVE NO IDEA WHAT’S GOING ON LOL.

(He never tells anyone how it felt—that first terrible moment when he turned around and Light wasn’t there, when all he could think was this isn’t right, she should be here, when he saw the gleam of her knife at the base of the pillar…

He never says how much he hated giving Serah the knife—giving back the last piece of Lightning Farron he has.

Instead, Hope throws himself into research that blocks out the memory of her smile, racing to find a way to bring her back—to bring them all back, like she would have wanted.)

See, like, the last half of the last sentence—it’s true and not true, and I just uuuugh.  I don’t reprimand “canon defilers” (WOW that sounds really negative I’m sorry) because you’re right, it’s just FANFICTION, damn it, but I have this self-imposed challenge to be as true to characters as possible, even in AUs, and this last bit doesn’t feel true enough to Hope (also known as MY BABYYYYYYYY). I also realize that I’m probably being stupid-hard on myself, lol.

When my mom’s out in public, she sends me pictures of lesbians she sees.

Jesus I envy that relationship. 

this is like the time when my mum took me bra shopping and the girl measuring me up was a lesbian and my mum said to me “i’ll go take a walk around the shop so you can talk to this nice young girl” and gave me a look as if to say “chat her up”. 

My mum tries to push me towards cute possibly gay girls and then disappears. She did it in Primark once and I found her hiding behind a pile of knickers, watching me.

i love all of your moms

When I was 17 I was convinced I was in love with the check out girl at the grocery store 5 minutes away from our house, so my dad went to get milk and somehow found an appropriate point in the conversation while buying a half gallon of milk to give her my number. Three days later she called me and asked if I wanted to come over “to watch a movie” and long story short my dad got me laid thanks dad.


That last story is worth reblogging

I’m afraid I’ll never finish college. I’m afraid I’ll finish college with student loans I can never pay back. I’m afraid I’ll get a degree and won’t be able to find a job in that field. I’m afraid I’ll get a degree, get the job I dreamed of, and hate it.
