I rarely ever do posts like this, but I feel like this will really matter to some people.
AO3 is asking for some money, to keep the organization going. I don’t know about you, but I LOVE ao3. There probably hasn’t been a day I haven’t been on it in the last two years, I and seriously doubt there is anyone who reads fanfiction and doesn’t know of this wonderful site.
Now clearly, one could say there are better causes to put your money to, especially on a site like tumblr. But for some people, fanfiction and fanart is their escape, I’ve read lots of stories about people being depressed and then finding out about certain ships and then becoming much happier people, and personally, fanfiction is the reason I started making friends through the internet and connecting with people because of what I love.
So all I’m asking is, that if you’ve ever seen a fanwork on ao3, smiled at fluff, or ogled at a particularly smutty fan art, try to give just a little bit of money to this site. And if not, try to spread the word like I am! I’m not a staff member or anything, I just am a fan that really wants to let this site know how much we as fandoms love and appreciate what they are doing. So please, please, please, reblog this, or click one of the links below to help out!
Thanks so much!
SIGNAL BOOST! This site, unlike others I shall not name, does NOT limit what you can write, if you can imagine it, they allow it!
PUFF SLEEVE TUTORIAL FOR COSPLAY AND PERIOD DRESS!
Hey! There’s a lot of disjointed info out there about making puffy sleeves, and I thought it might be helpful to gather (ha) everything I’ve learned/found online in one place. Puff sleeves, more accurately known as “leg o’ mutton sleeves,” were popular between 1890 and 1906, and they’re a pretty common feature in fancy/ball gown costumes.
Under the readmore: how to draft & sew puff sleeves and tips and tricks for maximum puff! Featuring really shitty pencil-on-Post-It diagrams by me!
Many thanks to all the people whose brains I’ve picked about this, as well as all the Internet resources I’ve trawled to make this possible.
Ah, you’re watching Hetalia? I love that anime. The way they all just [clenches fist] dont die.

YOU SHUT YOUR MOUTH
I felt sad so I wanted to build a nest so I put all my effort into shifting my stackable beds back together… then I had no energy left to build my nest properly…
you know how much pressure there is on girls to be good at every video game they play, because if they fuck up once there’s going to be a heck of a lot of people saying how girls suck and how they shouldn’t play video games
The lovely blogger, ughmoriarty, has made some worrying posts recently in response to anon hate. A lot of people are seriously concerned for her life as she hasn’t replied to messages. Please, if anyone has any way of contacting her outside of tumblr, let me or one of her friends know. Please reblog this or ask your followers if they know anything. Maybe send her a positive message as well so she knows how loved she is by us all!<3
No one has heard from Tan for several hours. Please keep sending her messages & let me or one of her friends know if you have any other way of contacting her.
Get ready for the Disney movies, people.
So I’m reading the article and then this:
For example, there is the tale of a maiden who escapes a witch by transforming herself into a pond. The witch then lies on her stomach and drinks all the water, swallowing the young girl, who uses a knife to cut her way out of the witch.
German fairytales are so brutal. (I love that)
