[ ♛ ] send me your url and i’ll tell you the following:

my opinion on;

character in general: I love Marco. Full stop. End of story. Though most of what we know about Marco is from headcannons so I’m gonna start with what we do know. He loves his family, and is willing to go to war to protect them just like every other WB pirate. That is enough to make me like him. Marco probably had it rough like everyone else and then had to lose both Thatch and Ace which breaks my heart. I want him to come back. Just to at least let us know he is alive and ok. And I want to know more about him <3
how they play them: Both your adult Marco and your lil blue fluff ball are frickin adorable XD I love them <3 That aside, you have a very well developed muse. You seem to know exactly how he will respond and he is a very comfortable character to communicate with.

the mun: I love you to pieces XD I read all your threads and cheer on your rants and join in when defending someone from the idiots here. That’s probably my favourite thing about you. You look out for your friends. You are also one of my favourite people to talk to here :)

do i;

follow them: Follow forever <3
rp with them: Yes
want to rp with them: want to RP MORE with them
ship their character with mine: No …. I only ship Marco with Ace. And you already have a special Ace <3

what is my;

overall opinion: 10/10 I have nothing else that hasn’t already been said lol. You are my fave Marco and one of my good friends here <3

Mantis update: they are catching the midges I’m giving them (don’t care for ant larva apparently), they all still seem energetic, and one of the ones I thought were dead is very much alive and drank right away when I put him in a cup misted with water droplets. One of them has it’s back legs stuck in the skin it shed after emerging from the egg case, but is still managing to get around okay without using them. I don’t want to intervene because their legs are hair thin at this point and I’d be more likely to screw up than help. Flies will be here Saturday (I was hoping for tomorrow, but if they’re eating midges I guess that’s fine).

I adore adore Josh, to death, more than i do like Jen. But let´s be realistic, Jen eat Josh alive in interviews, she just upstage him. Sure Joshy is 100 times more articulate and seems to care way more about the movies than Jen does but she gives a better show, and that's what they want. You guys seriously need to stop hating on Jen, homie has her flaws but she is a good caring person and makes Josh very very very happy, that should be enough for you.

IF what I’m seeing is true, a big reason there is a lack of promotion is due to Jen’s either outright refusal to do certain things (like an EW photoshoot) or because LG won’t commit to things without Jen’s participation. I know she’s the star of the movie, but she is NOT the only one who has to be present to promote it. Josh is a very integral part of this movie - he plays the second most important character. He could easily carry a lot of promotion (and honestly does already).  

I’m gonna disagree that Jen ‘upstages’ him in interviews. She’s more flashy, more unpredictable, sure. But that doesn’t mean she’s any better at interviews than him. And honestly? At this point, it’s exhausting to watch her interviews. It’s becoming less and less about her being genuine and more about what wacky thing she’s going to do next. And the media EATS IT UP AND KISSES HER ASS AND PRAISES HER INSANITY. That’s where a lot of the problem is. That’s not Jen’s fault, sure. But go back and watch her interviews from a few years back. They are not as ‘zany’ as they are now. There was an honesty to them that just doesn’t seem present anymore. Like she’s trying too hard now, and overcompensates. And honestly? Her utter lack of tact in a lot of interviews, in regards to the franchise, is getting insulting. She doesn’t seem to give a shit anymore. It doesn’t come off in a very good light. She’d rather say something ridiculous and silly than actually talk about the movie. Or she complains about something she didn’t like doing for the movie and that becomes the soundbite. Promotion to her seems like a chore, and she seems to forget that she has fans that are genuinely invested in this story, in these characters, and in her performance.

I’m not ‘hating’ on Jen. Every single goddamn time I start getting expectantly critical of Jen, people like you come in my ask and are like ‘WHY ARE YOU HATING?!?!’ This isn’t hating. This is frustration. This is criticism of someone who has a responsibility to her fans and to the role she plays, something she started treating like a JOKE or a JOB she HATES. That’s not okay. 

haha h a while I was going through my dragon books I found the Temeraire series, which are some of my favourite books ever and you should really all read. they’re an alternate version of the napoleonic wars with dragons, who have been befriended by humans (kinda?) and have their own devision of the army and each dragon has a captain, who is essentially their partner, and the bond they share is emotional rather than telepathic but basically if you hold the captain hostage the dragon will literally do whatever you say for fear of their captain’s death. and basically in the fifth book theres a bit where the main character, Temeraire, thinks his captain is dead and then finds him alive and I

Keep reading

failure means stripping away the inessential. "I stopped pretending to myself that I was anything other than what I was. I was set free, because my greatest fear had been realized, and I was still alive. and so rock bottom became the solid foundation on which I rebuilt my life.

My biggest fear and sense of failure was not having my family. Feeling like I was robbing my baby of having his mother and father around everyday. Why should he have to compromise because his parents weren’t more responsible to bring him into a stable marriage or healthy relationship at least? Then it became about having the family I didn’t have, seeing other couples I knew have their family. I wanted that. More than anything. And it seemed like the problems between my sons father and I were so FEW, that there was no reason we couldn’t have what “they” have. But I didn’t realize that while we maybe didn’t have 20 problems, the two or three we did have were HUGE. But because they weren’t problems to both of us, because they weren’t huge to both of us, we could never come to a solution. To him there was nothing to fix, it was all old news and ancient history. To me it was the aftermath of the disaster that proved to be more devastating even years later, like side effects of radiation. There was emotional detachment because of resentment, deep rooted mistrust as a result of taking advantage of the endless chances given, serious self esteem issues: trying to figure out why wasn’t I good enough, what was it about her or her AND her. Etc to him it was dramatics and inconveniences. He didn’t want to hear about it anymore, as if I enjoyed feeling like that and now I’d have to keep it to myself? Once I got past ALLLLL of these things on my own, I became angry, eventually I snapped out of it and realized it was never about me and I was able to move on. Then we tried to reconcile and the after the anger and resentment subsided, it turned into fear. Fear of it happening again, fear of falling back into that comparative thinking if it did happen again, fear of being disappointed and embarrassed yet again. So these were all of the issues that lingered yearssssss after the actual blows to our relationship. And because he couldn’t grasp that, because he couldn’t understand and empathize with that, We could just never get on solid ground to build up. It was like quick sand, it looked fine but the quicker you try and move through, the quicker it all sinks. When my relationship fell apart this time, it didn’t devastate me because I didn’t lose my family, I haven’t had the family God intends for me to have yet. And once I realized that, I was able to pick myself up and move forward. Because even though this was truly in my heart what I wanted, Part of me has always felt like this isn’t truly where his dad wanted to be, I think it was more he idea of having our family and the idea of raising our son than actually doing it. I would never stay in a relationship for the sake of our son because it would never last and we would be miserable. But this is the last time I’ll start at this place. This is my rock bottom, not because of any devastation or traumatic event, but because from here I will use all the lessons I’ve learned in this relationship and be able to grow and use them in my next, I can close this chapter for good and build from it and invest and maintain a healthy happy relationship. My son will always have both his parents, and now he’ll also have two step parents that will all love and care for him just as we do now and THATS what family is.

John Winchester was such a shitty parent and tbh i really didn’t like him character-wise either? He didn’t have much depth as he was only alive the first two seasons (and let’s be real the backstory/emotional writing aspect of the show has improved so much) but even in season 6 when Dean goes back and watches him before his mom was pregnant, he seems like a normal happy guy with no emotional issues when in reality your wife dying usually doesn’t just turn the abusive switch on? He seems so emotionally stunted all of the episodes he’s in. I really want him to be fleshed out more in season 11, especially his relationship with Dean. Dean’s obviously always been in denial about what’s happened between them, that can be a common thing with abused children if they have a sibling that’s treated less horribly (Sam got less attention but he wasn’t as mistreated just ignored) because they learn to have such such a huge fear of their parent that they defend them even if they’re not even alive. Sam grew to resent him because he saw what he did to Dean, and didn’t fear John physically as much and had room for anger and not ‘respect’(fear)

Title: All The Bright Places

Author: Jennifer Niven

Goodreads Rating: 4.22/5

My Rating: 5/5

My Thoughts: This book ruined me. I’m not even joking. It left me sobbing at three in the morning. It was one of the best ones i’ve read. I can guarantee you that if you read it, you won’t be able to forget about it for a long time, it will haunt you.

First of all, the characters.They are so well created, so relatable. Finch is absolutely amazing, sarcastic and witty with a distance to the world and himself. Even though he is fascinated by death, he seems more alive than most people will ever be. He makes you want to know him more, to know what happened to him, how the asleep and awake started and why he ended how he ended.

Violet seems kind of annoying at first, but each chapter makes you like her more. She’s a tricky character. Personally, i wanted to know her better, to know the before-accident Violet. I also wanted to scream at her for rejecting Finch at first. But it couldn’t be that easy from the start, now could it? I admired her for overcoming her fears though, for trusting Finch and letting go of the past.

Their relation seems so effortless, so real. I think that’s what made me grow so fond of them. I really liked the double perspective too. It’s great to see how each of them starts developing deeper feelings for one another.

To conclude, the book is very well written, quirky, will make you laugh and cry and want to read it again, without knowing what happen, to relive it one more time. If you haven’t read it yet, i strongly recommend to get your hands on this book, because it’s SO worth it!

anonymous asked:

what are your thoughts about todays epi? i honestly did not like it i felt like there is no more love between the boys and the whole thing was a mess

you’re right, the whole situation is a real mess right now but you know… it’s a soap haha. yep they were arguing a lot recently but looking at the situation it’s understandable to me.

i actually loved both episodes! i mean yeah… robert is crazy that he still wants to go back to the whites (he didn’t really seemed to be bothered that chrissie threatened to burn him alive…? yeah it was fake but still..? he’s so desperate man) but when he suggested running away with aaron i freaked out. i mean i still can’t believe that he actually wanted to start a new life with aaron. just the two of them together (IMAGINE!!)

what sucks is that aaron was more of a second choice which is why i’m glad that aaron stood his ground (so proud). but you know, i still believe that one day this is gonna change and robert will chose aaron first. i truly believe it.

OH MY GOSH YES! And usually, after a pretty big argument, they each go to their room, Rose kicking stuff around, frustrated and the Doctor (maybe pulling out an old picture of them together), starts crying (as silently as possible, though, he doesn't want Rose to hear him) and curls up on his bed with the blue shirt Donna found in the control room, swearing to himself he'll make Rose better again. (I'm sorry, I'm terrible at this stuff XD)

I can’t see the Doctor really reacting like that – more likely he would just get more aggravated and try pushing her even harder, which of course doesn’t work. But I don’t really seem him as the type to cry unless it’s a really bad situation. And yes this situation is bad but as long as Rose is alive and with him it’s nothing he can’t handle.

I always thought that Nog fell in love with Jake the moment he set eyes on him (he took a bit to admit it to himself, being a human male and all) but it took a lot longer for Jake to fall for Nog. What do you reckon would be the moment (before or after the series ended) that Jake fell for Nog?

I would say Jake relized he loved Nog about when Nog left to go to the academy cuz he missed him more than “just friends ” he doesn’t do anything about it until after Nog loses his leg (wich goes with Nog’s insecurity like you said ) but really Jake was just so relived that Nog was still alive he doesn’t want to waste any more time

I like your theory that Nog has loved Jake since they met since in the early seasons he always seems to be trying to impress Jake
