  • Listening to: the Soundtrack of "Ludwig 2" on endless repeat
  • Reading: A Treatise of Human Nature, by David Hume
  • Watching: Shadowhunters
  • Drinking: tea, because it's cold and it's snowing -_-
The following is a rant about Shadowhunters... because I started writing this in the description of the fanart I just posted and it kinda... turned out waaay too long for a description... So I moved it here~

Sooo, there was the movie, like a couple years back, right? Riding that wave of "Harry Potter ended and now we gotta dash out one teenage novel series adaptation after the other!" - and unlike Twilight, the Hunger Games and whateverthefuck came after that, I actually really enjoyed the Mortal Instruments! Obviously, that meant this was literally the only teenage novel series adapatation that then got canned, because... *looks at Percy Jackson* that's just what happens when I enjoy something :D

Anyway, when I watched that movie I, of course, instantly found a ship to sail. And that there was no second movie was really devastating on that account. Then the show was announced and I got reeeaaally happy - because, hey, it's been a few years but I definitely remembered three things about it!
1. It's my favorite genre - supernatural/fantasy
2. I shipped the hell out of the blonde cutie and his so-badly-in-love-with-him best friend
3. I actually liked the female lead character, something that... hasn't happened since Buffy, I think

I was sooo vastly disappointed the first time I watched Shadowhunters. Like, seriously, it totally bummed me out.
1. They didn't do a very good job on explaining how the world works and explaining its lore; I was stumbling a lot and over the months of it airing, I already forgot half of it again by the time the season finale came around
2. What the fuck, why does the so-badly-in-love-with-the-blonde-cutie get a boyfriend? And literally the entire fandom seems to only ship them together...? I'm... not getting my fix of my OTP like, not at all...
3. I fucking hate Clary's actress. She's the worst I've seen in a long, long, looong time. Such bad acting, such awful delivery of lines. Just painful to watch and actually the main reason why this show disappointed me - because liking and relating to the main character is THE most important thing about ANY show for me personally.

I was actually not going to watch season 2 at all and just, you know, forget this exists. Then it reached Germany and got a dubbed version and my parents saw a trailer and even my father - who has... in the history of ever... never watched a fantasy show with me and my mother before - wanted to watch it.
Who knew? It fixed problem number 3! The German dub is really great, especially Clary's. Instead of the constantly whining and whimpering borderline bitchy delivery of every single line, there was a more mature, calm and level-headed and also far more professional voice. I saves SO MUCH of the character and actually even made me like show!Clary.
And then I have a good friend who read the books and is now my personal Shadowpedia to fix problem number 1. With more - far more - background knowledge and reminders of things that have been explained like once in the beginning and got kinda lost in all the drama, I got a far better grip on the world and thus got to enjoy it more.
My personal Shadowpedia also helped me with problem number 2. Because what Shadowhunters really is is one long motion-picture Malec fanfiction. A badly written one at that - because the OC comes between the couple, there be a wedding, but literally in the last second the other guy comes in to stop the wedding and a dramatic kiss follows plotline is virtually EVERY bad rom-com movie ever. And such a overused clichee, that is the definition of bad writing for me. Now, my Shadowpedia assured me that in the book canon, it's not that bad and that plotline didn't happen in that way. So, that also saved a lot - because if Shadowhunters really is just the Malec fanfiction of an emotionally 14 years old fangirl, then I can accept it as that.

I mean, I didn't completely hate it the first time around either. There's one thing about this show that should be a national treasure - and that is Harry Shum Junior as Magnus Bane. He is a gift to mankind. Oh my gosh, he's so awesome, he even helped me with problem number 2 by simply being too fabulously amazing to not get the guy. (Regardless of how fucking awfully that "getting the guy" was scripted *rolls eyes*)
I actually kind of adore most of the cast - aside from Clary. Alec, Jace, Simon, Isabelle, Luke. They're all awesomely cast.
And even though I was kind of unaware of the fact that Malec was a thing (because, well, only knowledge I had previous to the show was the movie where Magnus was in for like 5 minutes or so...), I found a very easy way around that! It's simple math. Magnus and Alec, and Alec and Jace equals Magnus and Alec and Jace. Threesomes are awesome.
Which worked out well for the other three too - because I ship Simon/Isabelle/Clary in every constellation there is between those three.

Now I have only one problem and that's the fact that the entire fandom seems to only ship Malec... I mean, I'm used to sailing my ships alone or only with a small crew around me, but it's still devastating every single time. And when I find that threesome, Alec always ends up at the literal bottom of the pile.

I dunno, but when they do their parabatai thing of holding hands and staring deeply into each other's eyes - Dominic Sherwood with those LIPS (I mean, seriously, that guy's face is 40% lips, 40% gorgeous heterochromic eyes and 20% cheekbones), staring up at Alec... Yeah, no, I don't see where people see Alec as a bottom. I can only guess it's due to book-knowledge, but when I see those actors...? I know who I see as the bottom.
(Also, can we talk about the fact that Matthew Daddario is Alexandra Daddario's brother and that their parents must have like sold their souls to the devil to get those fucking gorgeous off-springs... I mean, seriously, that level of gorgeousness in one family is simply not natural... ôÔ°°°)

Uh, yeah, got sidetracked by mentally picturing Jace and Alec doing their parabatai-nearly-kiss-thing again. I love when they do that. A lot.

So, anyway, got sucked into another fandom where it's frustratingly hard to find fanfiction to accomondate my tastes - sooo I guess it's up to me to write what I want to read... Good thing I'm also used to that :D

Phoe out!

Shadowhunters - The Threesome Paradise
Never before was anything ever so perfectly made to be shipped in threesomes like this show! I mean, seriously. Threesomes are my favorite way of shipping and in Shadowhunters, they just fall into place to perfectly.

I watched the movie back then and liked it - and instantly shipped Alec/Jace. So when the show started airing, I was hyped to get more of that ship (which I did, because holy shit do they have chemistry and whenever they do the "holding hands and staring deeply into each other's eyes"-parabatai magic thing, I scream at the screen that they should really kiss now ^-^). But Malec is a thing that exists... that I was previously not aware of. I mean, Magnus had like... five minutes of screentime in the movie back then, I think (or at least it felt that way xD).
So, that kinda threw me off for a little. But hey, if there's one thing that can be said about me, it's that I can very easily fix conflicting ships by turning them into threesomes! ^o^v
Magnus/Alec/Jace is a thing that should happen. It doesn't really in the fandom, which is a big disappointment to me, but hey - I'm used to sitting pretty alone in the ships I sail, so why not! Smaller crews make the cruise more cozy anyway ^_______^v

And then there's the others. Like, I instantly shipped Simon/Clary. But also Simon/Isabelle because she is so good at flustering him, it's adorable. I also think that Isabelle/Clary have quite some vibes. So, that is really the easiest math there is.

Fantastic Beasts and the Rest of that Long Title
Which is literally the only way I refer I refer to that movie, because that title is just too ridiclously long :D
(Though it's a little more of a mouthful in German than it is English, actually... "Phantastische Tierwesen und wo sie zu finden sind")

I actually reeeaaally enjoyed that movie. And I was adamant to not even watch it at all because it's just a money-maker in my eyes - and no one can argue that with me; if you decide to squeeze five spin-off movies out of that, then it is literally nothing more than a money-maker...
I do think it would be faaar better to keep this as a stand-alone movie and I wouldn't be thinking of it as a money-maker then. I thought it was a nice, well-rounded story and it was cute, but when I think about them doing four more of those...? Puts a bit of a damper on the fuzzy feels.

There were a lot of fuzzy feels - this movie made me feel very warm and happy whenever we were in the magic suitcase. Amplified by Jacob's genuine reactions, because they just felt so real and relatable. He was to me the heart of this movie. Absolutely.

So, obviously, he's missing on this! Because... I dunno. I just wanted to draw momma!Newt with Frank and Pickett. Would have liked to add Jacob and Queenie, because those two were adorable - even their romance was adorable and it very rarely happens that I say such a thing about a straight canon couple (they're mostly either obnoxious or badly written... like that Newt/Tina that, even just hinted, was really disturbing and missing all the chemistry, emotion or joy... which was partially because Tina was the blandest and most annoying character in this movie...).

So, huh, anyway, felt like sharing it considering I posted the Harry Potter one! ^o^v

Part of the Potter-Cast
This is actually already a couple months old, but yesterday, a Potterhead went through my notebook and started squealing very loudly and that reminded me that, oh well, I do have my DeviantArt account to post fanarts - so, sure, why the hell not? :D

I'm not the biggest Harry Potter fan, mainly because I read the books when I was (in my opinion) too young and they scared the living hell out of me. Harry hearing those voices in the wall? I didn't sleep for days because I was afraid of the fucking wall.

That being said, The Order of the Phoenix is probably the not-animated movie that I have rewatched the most throughout my life. So, last year when I was apartment-sitting for my grandparents, I marathoned all the Harry Potter movies. And thus, Harry Potter fanart was born! ^o^v

They're the, in my opinion, coolest and/or most important characters in the series - Dumbledore, Luna, Hagrid, Ron, Harry, Hermione, Draco, Cho, Fred and George. If I would have had a bit more room, I would have also added Minerva, Remus and Sirius and then it would have actually covered all my favorites! Maybe next time I marathon the movies, I'll actually get around to drawing them all~

have you ever tried writing a Daddy!kink story about Nicercy?

this sort of headcanon came to me after re-reading the series and noticing how well Nico takes care of Percy and since you're about the only writer with amazing skills in this fandom who likes Nicercy as much as i do why not ask you to concider writing it.

(of course you're by no means obligated to write this, and i'm not sucking up to your ass but i genuinely think that you have the skills to put together this story the same way i have it in my mind)

ok, so Percy is a struggling college student who takes lots of jobs to keep him standing on his feet and Nico is the older business man who helps his father with the business it kinda starts off with a coffee shop AU kinda thing and then one day Percy finds out that while checking his college account that some one paid for all of his college fees. Angry because Percy know the only person with the enough amount of money to do such thing is Nico after explaining the situation and Nico telling Percy how he saw him struggling and he doesn't like seeing someone he cares about in such state decided to help him, then in the heat of the moment Nico confesses his love to Percy and they start going out.
then he starts showering Percy with presents and expensive things, after a while their friends start teasing them and calling Nico "Percy's Sugar Daddy" and then one day while having sex Percy accidentally calls Nico Daddy since he secretly loved the idea of having Nico as his "dad" since he didn't really have father figure growing up, Nico gets really turned on and insists that Percy keeps calling him Daddy when they're having sex. then the story ends with them having a sort of get together with their friends and out of habit Percy says "Daddy, can you pass the salad?"or something like that and Nico absentmindedly does so and after everyone recovers from their shock they start teasing them all over again xD.

(you really don't have to do it because i know you're busy with your life and planning all those other stories not to mention your headcanon-timeline. if you do decide to do it i wouldn't mind you changing the story a little bit to what you seem fit, i would also gladly wait patiently until you do it.)

*squints very confused* ...I have never read this before, yet it's more than a year old. So, uh, sorry for the ridiculously late answer, but I never got a notification of any sorts...? *blinks confused*
Well, then again I guess it's your luck I found this right now, because a year ago I would have told you no since I was more than just a bit busy at the time (middle of finishing my bachelor degree actually). Right now, as it is, I'm not very busy, but very eager to dash out Nicercy oneshots and also curious to try and mix it up with something new. And since I've never written a Daddy Kink (unless it was, well, with Poseidon), sure, why not give it a try.
Now, I guess that was the ultimate test of patience, eh? xD Though maybe for the future... better send messages or something... ô___Ô°°° *still confused why I never got a notification*
...If you're even still interested in having that story written and aren't thinking I'm a jerk for not answering at all... v///V
