... that last line

anonymous asked:

Do you think misha is really smart?

Not really. I’m personally not impressed by the fact that he graduated with honors from a top tier university, or at his wide range of everyday vocabulary, or his quick-wittedness, or his internships with NPR and the White House, or his ingenuity and creativity. Those are all pretty average to me. He could do more.

“Perhaps you would care for a little… venture?”
The crowd went silent. The minstrel looked into Fate’s bottomless eyes, and knew that if you played dice with Fate the roll was always fixed.
You could have heard a sparrow fall.
“Yeah,” said Cohen, at last. “Why not?”
Fate tossed the die on to the board. “Six,” he said, without breaking eye contact.
“Right,” said Cohen. “So I’ve got to get a six too, yeah?”
Fate smiled. “Oh, no. You are, after all, a god. And gods play to win. You, O mighty one, must throw a seven.”
Seven?” said the minstrel.
“I fail to see why this should present a difficulty,” said Fate, “to one entitled to be here.”
Cohen turned the die over and over. It had the regulation six sides.
“I could see that could present a difficulty,” he said, “but only for mortals, o’course.” He tossed the die up in the air once or twice. “Seven?” he said.
“Seven,” said Fate.
“Could be a knotty one,” said Cohen.
The minstrel stared at him, and felt a shiver run down his spine.
“You’ll remember I said that, lad?” Cohen added.

How come Autism Parents TM never talk about how autism can make kids easier to look after?

Like, you never see them talking about the babies who sleep really well because their senses exhaust them.

Or the kids who never get messy because it causes sensory issues.

Or the ones who will happily sit quietly with their special interest things for hours on end.

It’s almost as if they don’t actually want a nuanced discussion of autism, they just want you to feel bad for them by demonising their child…

Outside the barracks
By the corner light
I always stand and wait for you at night
We will create a world for two
I’ll wait for you, the whole night through
Like once Lili Marleen

Ignis: The exit’s sealed off. ( ・ - ・)

Prompto: But we can unseal it, right Noct? Noct!!  (゚´Д`゚)゚

Noctis: How should I know?! We’ll think of something, just chill.  (; ・`д・´)

Prompto: Do I seem like the “chill” type to you?  °(ಗдಗ。)°.

other ways to give feedback for fic writers

as a fic writer and someone who has some form of social anxiety (and therefore is really nervous of commenting), here are other things you can do as a reader:

- reblog! not only is this feedback, it also provides a very much needed exposure for writers and their fics. tagging the post would be even cooler, but if you aren’t comfy with that, just pressing the reblog button can help writers a lot.

- recs! you can make a post about your favorite fics, or find fics to rec when your friends/someone you follow ask for them, or even just randomly drop recs in their askbox (e.g. “i found this lovely fic, here it is if you want to take a look *inserts emojis*“). if you don’t have a tumblr, you can simply share via anon asks. i’m pretty sure every fic writer will squeal or at least internally scream with joy when they realize someone’s rec’d their works. this is also one of the only few ways fics get promoted.

- kudos! i have mixed feelings about kudos, mostly because i’m self-deprecating and (wrongly) view them as ‘you’re good but not good enough’ - but they’re important as well. some people tend to look for fics by the kudos count (min. x kudos, for example), either because they don’t have the time or it’s just their thing (though please try to not do that as much so non-‘big name’ writers have a chance). if you enjoy the fic you’re reading, smash that heart button thingy.

- bookmark and public bookmarks! this shows that you enjoy their fics and would like to keep them (perhaps so you can reread in the future?). some people comb through others’ bookmarks as well, so there’s always a chance they’ll click on the fics you like.

- private or anon messages/asks! if you’re not comfortable with leaving comments publicly, there’s always this option. most writers have their inbox open and will readily get excited with you. (seriously, grab a writer and just yell at them (ง •̀_•́)ง)
