sooo thanks to reading heartstrings by @taylordraws i was up til 3am doodling this garbage. god help my lost soul.

also i’d been talking to @littleblackchat all day about it and she was designing up what she imagined Mari’s dress from chapter 3 looked like, and I doodled this version based on her descriptions and early doodles of it xD so it’s a little different from the one she posted. Also I pointed out that the keyhole in the dress was perfect for Adrien in that scene, since he put his hand there and gyid7573943778hsjdfj IMAGINE IT GUYS imagine it

I think I might know what the Grimm from RWBY Volume 4 Chapter 10 is

WATCH OUT I HAVE SPOILERS


Okay, so the new Grimm is freaking creepy. It’s the hybrid of a horse and a man with long arms and with the fact that it’s huge

So my friend and I went searching and we’ve come to the conclusion it’s a Nuckelavee


So these little beasts are demons from Orcadian mythology (also has origins in Norse mythology). It’s called the “Devil o’ the Sea” and has webbed hands so it can swim. The beast has been known to travel on land with a horse as horrifying as it is. However people believe that the true form of the beast is the hybrid that’s depicted above and in the show itself.


Here’s another picture for a better look:

Now I’m not certain the significance of using the Nuckelavee in this, but I’m sure there is one. Just food for thought, though… the only entity able to control this beast is the “Mither o’ the Sea” which is an ancient spirit who kept him confined during the summer months (he couldn’t go out during winter because of his terror of fresh rainwater). So, who knows if they’re gonna keep to the Mither o’ the Sea lore, or maybe that might give way to something else for Ren and Nora…



Whatever happens, this is a terrifying Grimm.

Michigan (16), Florida (29) , Arizona (11), New Hampshire(4), Wisconsin (10). Those are the states Hillary would have won if Gary Johnson hadn’t siphoned off the needed about 4% to beat Trump. 70 votes in the electoral college. As I post this, she just needs 61 more. That’s an election right there. I hope 3rd party voters are happy because in a presidential race–maybe not House, but in a Presidential race, this is how it works.

Colourism

Recently, I opened my eyes to a whole new concept - colourism.  According to studies, 4 out of 10 women in Malaysia use a whitening product. Three quarters of Malaysian men find lighter skinned women to be more attractive. By 2018, the skin whitening industry is expected to be worth $19.8 billion (world wide).

So what exactly is going on?

Colourism is discrimination based on skin colour. That is the dictionary definition. For me, I have personal stories attached to the meaning.

Colourism is when I’m walking in a mall, and I’m stopped by a sales girl, who is trying to sell me a lightning cream so that it will make my skin ‘prettier’.

Colourism is when my friend told me to eat oranges because it would make my skin lighter. There is something wrong when someone casually implies that I need to lighten my skin.  (Quick science: The natural bleaching properties in citrus fruits help to reduce hyper pigmentation). Though one may want to correct hyper pigmentation (However, bare in mind hyper pigmentation is harmless and it’s not necessary to correct it), it is completely another story to want to make your skin a few shades lighter as a whole.

Colourism is when I was giving art lessons to little kids and I passed them a brown coloured pencil to colour in a drawing of a person, and they replied back saying ‘teacher, skin is not brown, it’s peach colour’. That broke my heart because their skin was a darker shade than the pencil in my hand.

At such a young age, they were conditioned to believe that their skin colour was wrong. It wasn’t valid.

Now people will tell me, ‘Oh come on, it’s just a person selling a product. It’s just a friend recommending what to eat. It’s just kids being kids’.

I fully understand that and Im aware that they meant well. Their intentions were not harmful. But we have to look at the bigger picture.

Intent does not change impact.

The impact of colourism is harmful. It is psychologically and physically damaging.

POC’s are growing up thinking they are not good, not beautiful and even not smart enough.Studies show that a person with lighter skin is more likely to get hired for a job than a darker skinned person with the same skills. Industries are profiting off of people’s insecurities. It perpetuates white supremacy. It systematically puts darker skinned people at a disadvantage. According to a research by Stanford, darker skinned defendants are more likely to get the death penalty than lighter skinned defendants.  

The problem of colourism is prevalent from self-confidence and self-wroth, to wage rates, to marriages and relationships and to the criminal justice system.

To whoever that has the privilege of using the internet and the opportunity to educate ones self through it, I believe it’s a moral obligation for you to be aware and to work against over coming internalized colourism that has been instilled in all of us for far too long.

thisisjamespaxton - Lukas is stressed to the max. He hasn’t been able to get a proper night’s sleep in weeks. The killer knows who he is and where he is. And STILL another 4 hours before the all new Episode 8 of #Eyewitness airs on #usanetwork at 10/9c! Please tell everyone you can to make sure they watch tonight live or have set their DVRs. This is when it counts. Thank you as always for your incredible support!

You don’t always have to restrict one House to a single meaning, and usually, there are multiple meanings due to the relationships that the Houses have to each other. Like the signs that naturally rule the Houses, the Houses also work together also.

Angular Houses (1, 4, 7, 10) are the start of something new, and are often considered the most “important” Houses, but they need the other Houses for support to be functional. Succedent Houses (2, 5, 8, 11) deepen and elaborate on the effect of angular Houses. Cadent Houses (3, 6, 9, 12) gives the person an opportunity to explore, expand, and work flexibly with what is given in the environment around them.

For example, while the 7th House rules our one-on-one interactions, the 8th House takes those relationships a step further and covers intimate relationships from the one-on-one interactions in the 8th House. The 9th House rules beliefs, but it can also give you an opportunity to apply and to explore elements in the world that can help you maintain stronger relationships through various beliefs and philosophies.

While you do need to look at all of the other Houses to really see how every part of you interacts with others through synastry, looking at the relationships between the Houses can really just show you that the Houses aren’t independent, singular areas of life. They all really work together, especially if you have aspecting planets in different Houses.
