KAT'S YEAR REVIEW & A THANK YOU NOTE
hello my lovelies! we reached the end of this year (thank god) and i have a few things to say and a lot to thank for you guys.
(i promise that the rest of my writing is not in this font lol)
this year sucked. bigtime. everyone was all over 2020, how bad it was and all but lemme tell you, 2021 wasn't that much better either. first half of this year was spent with struggling trying to find a job while spiraling down into the rabbit hole of self-pity and depression. finally in may (after 8 months of searching), i got accepted to a place that wasn't (and isn't) any better than what I had left behind in 2020. still, it is somewhat better and i least i have a monthly income for now.
but i still very much like to move on to something else in 2022 so here is the first thing im hoping for next year: a good job with a good salary, something i enjoy doing. (huh good luck you dumb biatch lol)
so all in all, i hated this year but!! there are a few things that made is somewhat bareable and it is all thanks to you guys! (here comes the soppy part so buckle up)
i (re)discovered the world of fanfiction throughout the pedro fandom sometime in november, 2020. i have all that time in my hands since i didnt have a job and i got really into it. ever since then, i find it hard at nights to go to sleep without reading anything before it (kinda became a tradition of mine if you will) and during the winter, reading fanfics helped me tremendously. they helped me escape from my miserable, jobless, futureless and lonely af life and they helped me get through the day. they brought me joy, sometimes tears in a good way and i caught myself staying up til 2 or 3 just to read "one more" chapter of a certain fic.
i still cant believe you guys are doing this for free, for our entertainment (and yours) ! sharing your wonderful works with us and expecting nothing in return (except for the obviously well deserved likes & reblogs) is truly a wonder i never be able to comprehend!
tumblr is truly a hellsite, it gave me so much anxiety since i joined back in actively yet... tumblr is also that thing that gave me the most joy this year with y'all in it.
and now for the thank you notes:
⭐ yes of course im starting with my dearest, my love, my one braincell, @queenofthefaceless. ari, you were one of the first 'big' blogs that started following me after i started making gifs again and i was all over and back and that support still holds up til today. thank you for your neverending support and for always being there for me, no matter what. ilysm. 💜
⭐ although we dont speak much lately, @keethus-arts I ll never forget your support and nice words whenever i was feeling down. thank you keeth! 💜
⭐ when @ithinkhesgaybutwesavedmufasa started following me, i was just about to go to bed around 2 am, but when i saw the notification i got so excited that i couldnt sleep for another half an hour and then the next morning i checked in there again to see if i wasnt dreaming. for a while i was intimidated by Katryn for some stupid reason (you know big blog with amazing and popular fics and all) but honestly she's the absolute sweetest and I'm so glad I got to meet you! You have such amazing & wonderful stories! i also wanna thank you for your infinite support towards my maxie gifs and towards my other works too💜
⭐ the same happened with @qveenbvtch, i was (and am) so in love with her javi series, i never thought that such a big and amazing (and intimidating) writer would ever talk to me, let alone follow me but she is also one of the sweetest person i've ever met here and i hope she is doing alright and having a nice holidays wherever she is right now 💜
⭐ @mandocrasis birdie, you know this by now but i found you and your blog through your mind blowing fic interruption which is probably something i will never shut up about, but through that smutty one piece i got to meet a wonderful person with wonderful stories & i thank you for your never fading support towards me and my gifs 💜
⭐ @asta-lily lil beans, although you are not that active anymore on tumblr (which i hope will change one day), you were one of the first people i became mutuals with and i was lucky enough too meet the sweetest, loveliest person in you. and your AOJ story forever remains dear to my heart 💜
⭐ sweet, sweet @anaaaispunk ! the first thing i read from you was the first chapter of your crazy in love series (during my summer holiday, on a beach, with people all around me... ) i was instantly blown away and sweating (and not just from the hot wheater 🤭), I just knew I had to follow you for more haha. but this way I got to meet another sweet soul of tumblr with an amazing writing talent. thank you for all the love and support you have shown towards me and my gifs 💜
⭐ MEG! i feel like i am so lucky for finding your soft max lord series, it seriously changed my life, i fell in love with the story, with max, the whole thing.. and when you dedicated your latest chapter to me with that sweet note, i felt like i could cry, because honestly, one of the best thing that happened to me lately haha. you are an absolute angel and dont you forget that @perropascal !! 💜
⭐ and i also wanna mention and say thanks to @babydarkstar! Your ezra story had blown me the fuck away, seriously, its amazing, wonderful and beautiful.. just like you anya, thank you for support and your amazingness! 💜
Alrighty, i talk way too fucking much so im just gonna tag the rest of y'all to whom i say a massive thanks because without your amazing fics i dont think i would have survived this year ( i know with some of you we are not mutuals but that doesnt stop me from loving your works):

Here's to another shitty AMAZING year with you guys on this hellsite!! 🥂🎉❤️❤️❤️❤️
As this year closes, I just want to thank each and every one of you on here who have supported my work and subsequently became a very dear friend of mine. This year has been exhausting and it has gotten incredibly hard a few months ago, but you gave me a reason to stay through your support and kind words, as well as given me the opportunity to grow as a writer and some of you blessed me with the art you have created. I have immense gratitude for that 💕💕

💞 A love note for 2021 💞
it may sound ridiculous, but rejoining tumblr this year was one of the best decisions I could have made. I took the leap into making a fandom blog in April from feeling lonely and dissatisfied with my personal relationships, and I just wanted to have some safe fun at home.
I wanted to read more fanfic and be around others who were enamored with Pedrito as well. I never expected to create amazing friendships and to have fun conversations, laughs, or to learn more about myself through your amazing stories. You all pleasantly surprised me with your great minds each day so thank you!!! 💞💞💞💞💞💞

Happy New Year to everyone!
It has been a crazy year for me in here. I joined baclk during the first months of the year, after being away since around 2016, and I never imagined how amazing and welcoming the community would be in here.
To every person who followed me: THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU! We are now 2.2k people in here and I can't even begin to process that. I love you all so so much! Either you came here for Oscar Isaac or Bucky Barnes (or both, hopefully lol) I love and appreciate you all so much 💖 and hopefully 2022 will be a good, happy year.
I gotta thank some of my mutuals and favorite people too...
My Bucky girl, @chouettedubois , your fics live rent free in my head, the way you write Bucky has definitely been the fuel of my Bucky thirst for most of the year. Every single one of your fics lives forever in my head. I can't wait to keep sharing Bucky thoughts with you the next year.
@jobean12-blog you were one of the first Bucky writers I followed in here and now we are mutuals 💞 your fics always put a smile on my face, your way of writing Bucky is so fun and sweet, and I can't wait to keep reading your work next year!
@mariesackler GIRL, I thank you every time for the endless Oscar thirst, but I have to give you an special thanks now that the year is ending 'cause you made my days so so much better with your asks full of pics.
@edencherries bestie! You end up on both the Oscar and the Bucky fandoms and I love you for that 💖 Finding you in this mess of a site was one of the best things of the year, I would love nothing but to give you a big Zemo hug!!
@castleamc sharing Poe headcanons with you is one of my favorite things ever, even if they sometimes make me emotional lol thank you for sharing those with me! I can't wait for you to see what I have planned for next year (Yes, it is that fic 💍)
@thedukeofcaladan Lorena! Mi paisana! So weird to find another Mexican who's also thirsting for Oscar Isaac, and yet here we are! I'm glad to have find you here! Feliz año nuevo ✨✨
@the-little-ewok you are such a lovely person in here, always inviting people to feel included and invited, and joining the Oscar Isaac community with you was the best thing ever. Thank you for being so great and friendly, you are the sweetest! Also, thank you for writing such amazing moments this year, they will carry on with me in 2022.
@starryeyedstories @anetteaneta @fisforfulcrum your writings made my days a thousand times better and brighter. You all have a way with words that I can only hope to get one day, I love you all so so much! And I hope 2022 brings endless joy to you!
@beydameron @salome-c your creations always amaze me, and seeing all of your work going around in my dash always makes me so happy! I also still can't believe we are mutuals lol You all have amazing talent and I'm so glad that I came across you this year 💞
I'm definitely forgetting people, and I'm sorry in advance lol but in conclusion, I hope 2022 is a fantastic year for you all, mutuals or not. I'm sending you big, warm hugs to a of you, and I hope you all have a safe, healthy, happy new year.

I am so sorry for having taken so long... But the last two days have been hectic, and I've just been able to sit down at my computer without fear of being disturbed...So, finally : I THANK YOU A THOUSAND TIMES, for (again!!) thinking of me, for all your gifts that I look at very often ( 😍 ) and that make me think of you (and of bellarke of course)... Thank you also for your wishes which touch me a lot 🤍 .
I wish you the same things, the best, really, because you are one of the most caring people I have known here and you really deserve it. Und auch wenn es hohl klingen mag, hoffe ich wirklich, dich bald zu treffen und unser Leben "nicht virtuell" besprechen zu können 😉 💞 .
Happy New Year, friends!! So pleased to have such creative, talented, generous, kind and wonderful followers/mutuals 🥰 Cheers to all! See ya in 2022 🥂🍾🎉💞
I was just about to ask if you can take commissions or requests because I need more fanart of the 3D Universe games (Vice City is my favorite). But I found out they are close.
When do they reopen?
Hi hon! I actually decided to just reopen them today thanks to your message and another fellow artist's! 😊
Vice City is the game that started my love for the whole GTA Multiverse, so I totally feel ya.
I will be reblogging my past commission's info post in a bit! You'll find all the info you need to commission me there 😆👍🏻
Thank you for all the love and support! 💞 Have a very Happy New Year! 🥂🎉🌈
haPPY NEW YEAR 🥂🥂💕💓💖💞💕🥂💕🥂💓💞💓🥂💕🥂💓💞💓🥂
A happy and healthy new year 2022! 🍾🥂🍸🍷🎉🎊🎈🎆✨💕❤💞🍀 All the best, and love & much joy. 🍾🥂🍸🍷🎉🎊🎈🎆✨💕❤💞🍀 Stay request healthy! 👍💕❤💞🍀
TPWP is one of my favourite fanfics of 2021 and I cannot wait to see where you take it. I am so glad I discovered your writing. 2021 was not kind at times, but you and other lovely jily writers made it better. Happy New Year! 🥂
Anon, this is SO lovely, it truly made me tear up a bit to login and see it there this evening! (okay, maybe I'm a bit overtired) Feedback is so valued, especially for a fic like TPWP which I've been slogging over for half a year or so now and is very...emotional, shall we say.
Thank you, thank you, SO much 💞 Happy New Year!
ICH WÜNSCHE EUCH EIN FROHES NEUES JAHR, VIEL ERFOLG, GLÜCK, FREUDE UND VORALLEM GESUNDHEIT. 🍀 🥂 ☀️ 💞
I WISH YOU A HAPPY NEW YEAR, MUCH SUCCESS, HAPPINESS, JOY AND ABOVE ALL HEALTH. 🍀🥂☀️💞
Cassandra, bby 🥂happy new year🥂
I hope you’re doing well, i love seeing you on my dash and I’m sending soooo many good blessings for the new year and today as well! your fics have helped me so much, sending you good vibes bb 💞
Haha love the pic!
Thank you so much for being a positive, shining light in this world. I'm lucky to know you, Michelle! You're an amazing friend, person, and writer! Have an awesome new year 💜💜💜
Ok, so for me, a little less than an hour is left of this year. Honestly, It started pretty badly, and didn't continue that much better neither, but me discovering Duskwood and this amazing fandom full of beautiful people made it much more bearable 🥰💚💞
And so my lovelies, for the end of this year, I want to thank you all from the bottom of my heart for being so wonderful and amazing, for putting a smile on my face when I needed it the most, and for making my days better just in general🥰💚💞
I wish you all a very happy, safe and healthy New Year! 🥰💚💞🥳🍾🥂 Sending you all much love and hugs! 💚💞💖
For the Snape ask thing:
3, 4, 7 and 11.
Btw happy New Year! 🥳🥂
Thank you for the ask and the well wishes, @yan-senna! 🥰 Happy New Year to you as well! 🥳
3. Which Disney character, according to you, is most like Snape?
This is probably asking more about movies than Disney Channel TV shows but the first one that popped into my head was Mr. Moseby--although more in terms of role in the narrative/characters' lives than personality. (If this was Nickelodeon, my answer would be Squidward in a heartbeat!)
4. Do you think Snape remained a virgin?
Honestly, probably yes. I personally just can't imagine him being interested enough to have sex with someone in canon. I don't know, maybe in his early Death Eater days he would have. I don't have super strong feelings about this one; I could be convinced otherwise!
7. Which staff member do you think gets along well with Snape?
I am a big sucker for Snacgonagall BroTP, and they do have similar teaching styles (also love their teaming up to take down Lockhart and other incompetent DADA teachers). So definitely them, but I could see potential for relationships with most of the staff members, barring the DADA teachers and maybe like, Trelawney and Slughorn. He would have had to have gotten along with Sprout to get ingredients, and she seems to be a pretty genial person anyway. And I liked a post a while back (please let me know who wrote it, and I'll credit them--I totally forgot, honestly) about Flitwick helping him with dueling. I also have a big soft spot for him having a good relationship with Madam Pomfrey--I think he probably would have ended up in the hospital wing a lot as a student, and I could see her really caring for him, although she's not able to help him much from her position. And I could see them bonding over his Healer tendencies once he's a professor. I've also been liking a quiet relationship with Filch and moments of care and understanding from Hagrid more and more lately. 💞
11. Your favorite scenes with book/movie! Snape?
Here is where I will confess that I have not read the books in full in a long, long while, so much of this is based on things I remember after others bringing them up in discussion. 😬 (Although I promise I did reread the relevant portions of "The Prince's Tale" before starting work on Mr. Always Wins!)
There are just too many book scenes to choose from for me, honestly. Every time he's on the page is a delight! From his snarky wit to moments of quiet, determined bravery. I suppose my favorites would have to be any moments where he shows that he has grown to care--and to care enough to make great sacrifices. Moments where he helps the students--Neville Longbottom, Katie Bell, even when he's worried enough for Ginny Weasley in the Chamber of Secrets to grip the back of a chair. And the scene in the Forest of Dean always gets me.
As for movie Snape, what the movies add that the books don't have is visuals, so my favorite movie scenes are unashamedly ones where I think he's hot! The Dueling Club scene in Chamber of Secrets is a big one; I don't know what it is--the snark, the skill, the snatched waist, him absolutely decking Lockhart, the little hair flip after he sends Draco up, I don't know--but it is so attractive for some reason. I also really love the Quidditch game outfit they put him in in the first two movies. Finally, I'm also a big fan of some of Alan's line deliveries: "my hand might slllllippp" from Goblet, "obviously" from Phoenix, and my mom's favorite "you... just... know?" from Prince!
Thank you for the ask, and once again, sorry for the length! 😅
