000 ships

  • Me after shipping 1,000,000 slow burn ships that still haven't happened: I'm so done with this slow burn shit, chop chop guys. I'm not going to suffer any longer, slow burns are the worst.
  • Me when those same slow burn ships look at each other once: OH MY DEAR LAWDDDDD YESS. I'VE WAITED 84 YEARS AND IMMA WAIT 1,000 MORE BECAUSE Y'ALL NEED EACH OTHER AND Y'ALL LOVE EACH OTHER SO ILL JUST WAIT HERE YOU BEAUTIFUL BABIES.
  • Overwatch fandom: How could GENCY be canon? Het relationships are the WORST thing that can happen how can they not make Pharmercy (a relationship never even hinted at) canon? It must mean they hate wlw. Ignore the fact that the first canon relationship outside of Gerard/Amelie was Tracer and Emily. Obviously they hate wlw.
  • Het Overwatch fans: this,,,, this HETEROPHOBIA. Every single straight relationship is good. Obviously every other character besides Tracer is cishet. McHanzo could never happen. Here's 10,000 unwanted het ships that don't even make sense in the game's canon and have no chemistry. I'm also going to make a fuckton of posts whining about the EVIL GAYS wanting to make everything GAY.
  • Me, a humble bisexual breadfarmer and multishipper: this discourse is not good for the crops, you fools. if we starve, our deaths will be on all of your hands.

I was tagged by dear @mcrgane, thank you!! :)

Name five OTPs from five different fandoms and tag 10 people

1. HANNIGRAM 

These psychos are my murder husbands :3 Goddamn, if there is a fourth season of Hannibal released, I will be the happiest fan ever

2. SHERIARTY

I mean I have been shipping them for so many years now that this pairing is an essential part of my life :D

3. DRARRY

Oh boi, I love these two so much because y’know, opposites attract ;)

*coughs from the bottom of Hamiltrash hell* I’m so in love with this damned musical *keeps searching for new funny memes*

Earth has 100 years before it is destroyed. The best and brightest board a ship on a 10,000 year journey to another planet. 20 years later a tech is invented allowing for everyone on Earth to reach the planet in 6 months. In 10,000 years the original ship arrives to planet full of habitants.

Food for thought for Hetalians:

If there would be around 200 canon nation characters in a Hetalia completed cast and each country could be shipped with every single one of them, regardless of circumstances, there would be around at least 80,000 possible ships (counting self-cest and nyo!talias but not duplicates like north or south, the micronations and other non-nation character).

5,000 Followers!

This is truly an amazing milestone.

You guys have no idea what this means to me. When I started this blog it was only when Genyatta had began to grow, so I didn’t expect it to take off like it did. I didn’t expect over 5,000 people would ship this amazing ship and be impacted by it in similar ways it has for me

A lot of you are so kind and I’m so grateful to have you as my followers. Just, thank you to everyone who sends me such nice, heartwarming messages. And thank you to the artists, writers, editors, to everyone who creates the wonderful Genyatta content that makes it possible for this blog to post daily.

Even through hard times we stick together, no matter what. I encourage all of you to remain strong, and try to be respectful and understanding. 

Thank you all so much!

Human skeleton found on famed Antikythera shipwreck

Hannes Schroeder snaps on two pairs of blue latex gloves, then wipes his hands with a solution of bleach. In front of him is a large Tupperware box full of plastic bags that each contain sea water and a piece of red-stained bone. He lifts one out and inspects its contents as several archaeologists hover behind, waiting for his verdict. They’re hoping he can pull off a feat never attempted before — DNA analysis on someone who has been under the sea for 2,000 years.

Through the window, sunlight sparkles on cobalt water. The researchers are on the tiny Greek island of Antikythera, a 10-minute boat ride from the wreckage of a 2,000-year-old merchant ship. Discovered by sponge divers in 1900, the wreck was the first ever investigated by archaeologists. Its most famous bounty to date has been a surprisingly sophisticated clockwork device that modelled the motions of the Sun, Moon and planets in the sky — dubbed the ‘Antikythera mechanism’.

But on 31 August this year, investigators made another groundbreaking discovery: a human skeleton, buried under around half a metre of pottery sherds and sand. Read more.

Making a point

My sister-in-law told me that if I could find 2.000 people who ship villains with heroines, she will write a book with it. It’s time for us, creepy shippers, to show what we came for! Like or reblog this, not both. When we got it, I will post her book as soon as finished.

On this day in music history: March 14, 1958 - The Recording Industry Association Of America (aka RIAA) certifies the first Gold single awarded. The trade organization established in 1952 begin a program to acknowledge and award recordings that achieve a high sales plateau. With the sales of 45 RPM singles and full length LP’s continuing gain momentum, the RIAA establishes the Gold sales award for singles and LP’s that have reached over $1,000,000 in sales in the US. The first single to qualify is “Catch A Falling Star” (#3 Best Seller) by pop singer Perry Como. The first full length album to reach Gold status is the motion picture soundtrack for the Rodgers And Hammerstein musical “Oklahoma!” The sales criteria is later altered for Gold singles at 1,000,000 units and LP’s at 500,000 units shipped. With record sales reaching an all time high by the mid 1970’s, the RIAA establishes the Platinum sales award for singles and LP’s in February of 1976, with singles reaching that mark at 2,000,000 units and LP’s at 1,000,000. When single sales dramatically decline in the 1980’s, the sales requirements are cut in half in 1989 for both Gold and Platinum status.

burstsofsam  asked:

Hello there! I might just be a bit dumb right now since I just woke up haha but I'm hoping to order your zine! When getting to the shipping details I'm a bit confused though? I see 2 USPS options. One I'm guessing is regular and the other for international..? Is the regular for US residents? Or is the zine shipping from another country? Thank you! :3

they should be labeled with north america and world shipping? i’ve never used tictail before but that’s the settings i set them to idk why they aren’t showing up all of a sudden :000 (the zines are shipping from the us so if you live in the us you should pick the cheaper option)

So when I was hanging around in steroline tag (I am bored and go for fun), I accidentally saw that staroline stans are saying they are happy to see that there are many steroline shippers in China. So I am going to show you guys what “many” truly means.

There’s a site called Tieba (something like forum) in China, let’s take a look at how many followers each TVD/TO ships gets.

Klaroline is a dead ship? Many steroline shippers in China? I hardly think so. :)

Oh and there’s a site called Weibo (similar to Twitter) is very popular in China. Some klaroline shippers made an account, post news about klaroline fandom & translate something fun happened in Tumblr klaroline tag to China klaroline stans. They almost reach 7,000 followers! Dead ship huh? (Followers: 6096, Posts: 676)

There are klaroline shippers all around the world. Don’t give up everyone! Be cool & ship klaroline! :)

The 10 summer blockbusters you simply HAVE to see this summer

Dunkirk

Director: Christopher Nolan

Cast: Tom Hardy, Cillian Murphy

A story that has surprisingly not been given the Hollywwood blockbuster treatment yet. Dunkirk revolves around the massive and courageous evacuation of the British Expeditionary Force and their French allies from the beach on Dunkirk, after they were encircled and trapped by Nazi Germany’s fearful forces in 1940.

The trapped forces (all 400,000) of them were shipped back to England under heavy enemy fire thanks to the bravery of people from all walks of life, who used every floating vessel to get to the north of France and bring the boys back home.

With Nolan at the helm expect the film to have all the action of Saving Private Ryan’s opening sequence, and the grit of the Dark Night trilogy.

 

War for the Planet of the Apes

Director: Matt Reeves

Cast: Andy Serkis, Woody Harrelson

The third part of the Planet of the Apes trilogy, and the second to be helmed by Matt Reeves, War… will look to build on the whopping success (if slightly unexpected) of Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.

The film once again finds the apes, under Caesar, battling humans for their planet. This time, however, Caesar and his kind are up against a ruthless human, known as the Colonel (Harrelson), who will stop at nothing to achieve victory.

 

Spider-Man: Homecoming

More from IBTimes India: Sophie Marceau, former Bond girl, takes it all off to show how she has thwarted time [PHOTOS]

Director: John Watts

Cast: Tom Holland, Michael Keaton

When Tom Holland appeared as Spider-Man in Avengers: Civil War, it was a pivotal moment for the web-slinger’s franchise: After the rather insipid Tobey Maguire, and miscast Andrew Garfield, we needed someone we could relate too.

Holland was excellent, and now the buzz around Homecoming has been amped up to 12.

Homecoming will introduce raging hormones, and The Vulture, but the presence of Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr) will go some way in ironing out any creases that may appear in the film, considering that this is also director Watts’ first major film.

 

Despicable Me 3

Director(s): Pierre Coffin, Kyle Balda, Eric Guillon

Cast: Steve Carell, Kristen Wiig

While there’s very little info on how big a role will be played by the eternally adorable Minions, it’s fair to say that D3 has “hit machine” written all over it.

D3 will see Gru take on Balthazar Bratt, which will naturally feature all manner of pratfalls and hi-jinks that should keep the kids pretty entertained. But adults need to watch out for Gru’s twin brother Dru (also voiced by Carell). That should take sibling rivalry to a whole new level.

 

Transformers: The Last Knight

Director: Michael Bay

Cast: Mark Wahlberg, Stanley Tucci, John Turturro

According to Michael Bay, the fifth Transformers film in the franchise will also be the last. And while that may bring a tear to the eyes of many Hollywood money men, the franchise was beginning to feel a little stretched.

The Last Knight will star Wahlberg and co from Age of Extinction, but also bring back the cast from the first three films (Shia didn’t get the invite we presume).

In the final film, we see the humans and the Transformers at it again, only this time Cade Yeager (Wahlberg) teams up with Bumblebee and Anthony Hopkins to try and figure out why the hell the Transformers can’t just leave Earth alone.

 

The Mummy

Director: Alex Kurtzman

Cast: Tom Cruise, Russell Crowe

This is only Alex Kurtzman’s second directorial effort, after the lukewarm People Like Us, and he’s stepping into some pretty big shoes.

Of course, they’re only big if anyone actually remembers the 1999 Mummy film starring Brendan Fraser (who, you ask…and quite rightly).

Either way, Kurtzman has some serious acting chops at his disposal with the immortal Tom Cruise and the slightly unhinged Russell Crowe.

This reboot will see a female mummy, played by Sofia Boutella, who wakes up in the modern world and looks to get back what is rightfully hers. We can only assume she’s going to be leaning on Mr Cruise to help her fight off the numerous baddies that will most certainly follow her into the future.

 

Wonder Woman

Director: Patty Jenkins

Cast: Gal Gadot, Chris Pine

This Wonder Woman film has received more publicity than all the Wonder Woman comic books ever published, so let’s hope it lives up to the hype. So far, signs are encouraging, especially now that the world has come to accept that Gal Gadot could actually be better than Lynda Carter.

The film will see Wonder Woman end World War I after she finds a ruggedly handsome pilot washed up on the shores of her home island. Expect lots of lasooing and a whole lot of men getting their asses kicked by a leggy Amazonian.

The film is directed by Patty Jenkins, who’s better known as tarting Charlize Theron down for her role as a serial killer in Monster. Well, at least she knows a thing or two about directing women who have a rather violent relationship with men.

 

King Arthur: Legend of the Sword

Director: Guy Ritchie

Cast: Charlie Hunnam, Djimon Hounsou, Jude Law, Eric Bana

Guy Ritchie hasn’t made a decent film since 2008’s Rocknrolla, and I don’t give a fig what Sherlock Holmes fans think.

Now, with Legend of the Sword, the director has a chance to redeem himself with a cast that packs more testosterone than a women’s bodybuilding competition.

Rather than reimagining the legend of King Arthur, Ritchie has decided to go down a more traditional road with the tale. Of course, the violence will be brutal and the pace faster than Usain Bolt’s feet, but we’re still wondering if the tale should have been given a slight twist. Then again, who knows, maybe Ritchie has done just that. Lead on Lancelot!

 

Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales

Director (s): Joachim Rønning, Espen Sandberg

Cast: Johnny Depp, Javier Bardem

Jack’s back…and you know why? Because he bloody well felt like it!

The fifth Pirates of the Caribbean film surely must be its last, after all, how long can Johnny Depp mince about?

The film will see Jack Sparrow fleeing the pursuing Armando Salazar, and looking for the Trident of Poseidon, that will give him total control of the seas…what could possibly go wrong!

Fans of the TV series Marco Polo will immediately recognise the directors’ names. Joachim Rønning and Espen Sandberg usually work together, and are best known for the superb Kon-Tiki (well at least they know how to film on water…hear that Kevin!)

 

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2

Director: James Gunn

Cast: Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana

Arguably the most-anticipated film of the year (Blade Runner and Alien fans may disagree), Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2 should easily break a few box office records.

The first film was outrageous, hilarious, and so goddamn entertaining that they could release five films at a time and we’d still watch every one of them…twice!

The sequel sees the gang back together (albeit with a rather tiny, and hopelessly adorable Groot) and while they’re busy battling all manner of beasties across the universe, Star Lord has to answer a rather niggling question about his lineage (could his father be Jake ‘The Snake’ Plissken? Crossover heaven!).

Bring it on!

The World’s Largest Cruise Ship Uses Normal Sized Cruise Ships As Lifeboats

At 39 decks tall, the USS Compensation is the worlds largest cruise ship. It’s so large that is uses normal cruise ships as life boats, and each of these cruise ships has conventional life boats.

The Compensation was commissioned by Donald Trump in the 1980s when he was at the height of his riches, and cost 17 billion dollars (560 Billion adjusted for 2015). That means it cost more than the GNPs of the smallest 55 nations on Earth combined. And it can house more than those countries as well, able to carry 150,000 people plus a crew of 18,000.

The great ship no longer sails however, as when it’s placed in the ocean the water displacement floods most coastlines, killing thousands. It is currently stored in a drydock on the coast of Wyoming where locals worship the great ship as a god.

Day 2.

Today was a rough day. Not as bad as they have been lately, but I got spoiled by all of the good days lately.

I did some free writing this morning. It didn’t go well, but hey, some words on a page.

I know I should be working on my book or script. But right now, with life the way it is, I need to take a step back. I need to focus on me. If I get in the mood and get some writing done, awesome. Right now, just any sort of writing will do. I did some personal reflection writing. It didn’t make me feel better.
