out of blooms : I’m sorry for not rping this weekend. My drafts are giving me the stink eye…
I busied myself with a college app the past few days because it’s time to get back to the academia world. I’ll have plenty of time to come around next weekend. I just needed to get this done.
Till then, stay classy.
Ok so I’m bored and I wanna play on photoshop for a little bit, but first I gotta run errands. So I’m going to do a mini giveaway.Rules
- mbf me
- Reblogs only! Likes don’t count
- Ends in like an hour and a half from how (around when I’ll be back from running errands, I think), so 4:20 CDT-ish
- Must get at least 10 reblogs
Extending by two hours because I’m still out and forgot to drop off prescriptions
out of blooms : Okay so this isn’t relevant but it isn’t /not/ relevant. I’m getting high speed Internet set up in my house in 2 weeks. We’ve only ever had dial up in this house, and I’ve been having to go to wifi hotspots to use the Internet for anything more than checking email. And even that is asking too much, apparently. It’s so slow.
This is huge. I’ll be able to get online whenever I need to, rather than waiting for the weekend when I have time to drive to the nearest wifi. It also means rp will be more often than once a week!
Anywho, that’s all. I just had to pop in and announce it. I’m sure you can feel my excitement, right? Right??
I have been trying to think of a way to try and make sure that people always get notified for my replies, because I know how frustrating it is for me to go to my activity and it doesn’t show everything. This morning I had an idea.
I have noticed that when you tag a username in the post with the @ feature that you will pretty much always get a notification for it. with this idea you are using that function as a backup in case tumblr doesn’t notify the other person about your reply. (if you don’t know about that function go here)
But this is what I was thinking of doing with my replies. I do the usual: Load up the reply, remove my last post and get it ready to write my own under it. Usually the link of their name at the top will go to the other persons post. We can cheat a little here. We can remove that and type their name again with with the @ feature like below. That way the other person will get notified also that they have been tagged in a post and when they go to view it, they will see their reply waiting for them.
(i used a random draft for this)
I just also tested this with a reply to a friend that is online right now and she received the notification that I had tagged her in a post. This might really help with the issue of losing drafts.
So to my followers and people I RP with. Till tumblr gets off their backside and fixed the notification system for reblogs, I will be using the tagging/mentioning system as above to make sure you are notified about my replies.
out of blooms : Taking off for the night. Starting to get sleepy. Any newcomers are welcome to message me if you want to rp. Ask box is open, as always.
best of Rumplestiltskin - 3.09 Think Lovely Thoughts
For hours into the night her sobs had reverberated through the halls of his castle. The crying had disturbed his spinning, making him feel a pang of guilt for putting her in this situation. No, she got herself into this situation by deciding to come with him, he convinced himself. He had not forced her decision and placing her in the dungeon had been necessary.Who knew what a slip of a girl would try if allowed to roam the dark halls while tumultuous emotions rolled through her like a tidal wave.
As dawn approached and the first ray of sunlight bled through an opening in the dark curtains of his room he dressed himself in his usual harsh clothing. He had a reputation to keep up after all, especially for her.
Walking down the dungeon hall he could feel, even taste her fear, as he got closer to the door that shut her out. Grinning to himself and with a push of magic the door flung open, revealing the trembling and sobbing beauty before him.
"I thought you were going to cry yourself sick last night, dearie," he spoke, the usual trill in his voice mocking her in a way. "Needless to say you kept me up at all hours, and disturbed my work with your relentless crying. I do my best thinking when I spin!"
Breathe, a voice told her tenderly, and only after she drew in the air she had denied herself did she recognize it to be her conscience. The young woman had stiffened the moment he appeared to her in the doorway, frozen with fear. His figure was imposing, even with the air of an abeyant threat, and the sight of him overpowered her senses.
"…s-sorry…" was her soft reply, so feeble that even in the room’s acoustics it was nearly lost. She wondered, as it fell between them, if it was right for her to apologize. If it was apt. It had fallen from her lips before any measure of thought could manifest. "I tried to be quiet." And she had, truly, she had. Though her sobs had left her incessantly through the night, unyielding, she had tried to muffle their sound for fear of drawing his attention. She didn’t know what his attention would bring with it, and she didn’t wish to find out in such a way.
A tremble rippled through her as she continued to watch him, studying him… She couldn’t tear her eyes from his form, though a part of her wished to. A greater part of her tried to read him, to ascertain the nature of his temperament, and to try to guess how much anger hid itself within the mockery.
