Hi Taylor, my name is Amanda. I’ve been looking up to you obsessively for 5 years now. My love and appreciation for you has only grown stronger. I’ve seen you three times, once in Nashville at the Red Tour(9/21/13), once in Chicago for the 1989 Tour(7/19/15), and once in Nashville(9/25/15) on the 1989 Tour. I just want to start out to say that my love for you is so strong. You, Taylor, have made me stronger and wiser. You were there when I was struggling so much. You help me so much with my anxiety and depression. I just want to show you just how deeply I truly appreciate you by showing you this absolutely horrible but meaningful reaction of me seeing you closer than I ever have before, on the 1989 tour IN NASHVILLE!! It was the best experience I’ve ever had. and I just want to thank you for everything you’ve done for me. Thank you thank you thank you, Taylor. I wish I could tell you everything, but I’d really just like to say I love you and thank you. @taylorswift
Very first would be Bauhaus/Tones on Tail/Love & Rockets/Peter Murphy. For a long time I was only really involved in music fandom & lifestyle. First non-music fandom? Probably Mad Max, though I flirted with the Harry Potter & Tolkein fandoms in the late 90s.
9. What are the best things about your current fandom?
Mad Max? The people! Hands down, I have met the best people through this fandom and made really amazing friends.
Overwatch OTOH… I dunno, it’s more just that I really love the characters themselves and I love that I can have fun playing a AAA game again after so many years feeling like they weren’t designed to be fun for people like me.
13. Any NoTPs?
Immortan Joe/Furiosa (even if it turns out to be canon, I don’t fucking care, I don’t want anything to do with it.)
I also kinda hate Zarya/Mei & Widow/Tracer.
Marvelmas (9/13) - December 21 - Pietro Maximoff x Reader
Words: 1257 Pairing: Pietro Maximoff x Reader Featuring: Tony, Wanda, Peter Parker, Steve Rogers Warnings: Probably swearing. Marvelmas Series! Authors Note: this one was fun because damn i love pietro
You knew that Pietro celebrated different holidays than you, but he also knew what Christmas was as he did celebrate that as well. He just wasn’t into it as much as everyone in America. Of course, he and Wanda celebrated as kids, but it was more of an extra thing to celebrate.
As he lived in Sokovia, he didn’t hear much Christmas music, so it was your honor to introduce Pietro to the festive time. To be honest, you didn’t have much planned for his day. He told you from the start that he didn’t need one if you ran out of ideas, and he wasn’t just trying to get out of it. But you weren’t going to let him off that easily; especially for someone like him!
“I got the video you wanted. Now show me the Bucky fail, Tony walked to where you were sitting with a flash drive in his hand.
"Not now, I’m trying to come up with something to do with Pietro for today.”
“The list is failing you?” Tony gasped, making fun of you.
“Keep at your sass, and you won’t make it until Christmas,” You smirked at him.
Tony put his hands up defensively to let you continue talking. “Well, what does he like to do?”
“Be annoying? I don’t know! I’m out of ideas!” You groaned and threw your hands over your eyes. All of the sudden you felt a gust of wind and everything was cold.
Gettysburg! Also Amazing Grace, but it’s no comparison really. Gettysburg all the way.
13. [share some random historical trivia!]
So when Sam Adams and the gang were in Congress, Joseph Warren became the de-facto leader of the Sons of Liberty in Boston. On top of running the revolutionary Provincial Congress, he also ran a spy network with his friend Benjamin Church. Ben Church was a beloved member of the sons of liberty, and a doctor just like Warren. The two essentially were in charge of the whole ring, and Paul Revere and the other spies were given specific orders not to report to anyone but the two of them.
Pity Benjamin Church was a double agent working for Thomas Gage.
21. What is your favourite history-based game?
Assassins Creed III. I love my revolutionary war era children and trash templars.
OKAY I kind of got carried away with the whole nsfw asks. But I need to know these from both Sam and Dean. 9, 10, 13, 21, 29, 30, 42, 56, 59, 61, 62, 66, 72, 73, 78, and 85. I know it's a lot! Sorry!
Dean: Wowza. Okay, I’m gonna go in order. My perfect mate would be someone adventurous, but also sane enough to keep me grounded. A sense of humor is a must, and she’s gotta like classic rock, or at least tolerate it. I don’t believe in love at first sight, but I do believe that theres a tangible chemistry present at first sight. Yes, i get jealous easily. Pastries tends to enjoy that. I most certainly know of at least one person who has feelings for me. Cheating is one thing i’d never do. I mean, I could tone up i guess, but im no ken doll. No plastic for me. 8 facts about my body? uh. Freckly. Tall. Scarred. Bruised. Tan. Hard? Sore. Cold, Pastries keeps her house freezing. I think you know what I look like ;) I first notice their smile. The sexiest thing? Probably bake. Favorite roleplay would be FBI because ive got PLENTY of practice. I like to hear anything at during sex. I’d like someone to just spend a day in bed with me, no hunting. I cant reveal my secrets on here! There’s too many witnesses. I might date someone online.
My perfect mate would (ideally) be tall, have some sense of the same faith as me, have a great sense of humor, enjoy supernatural, and just be weird and real and good. I dont belive in love at first sight, because it’d be dangerous if i did. I dont think i get jealous easily? I was only in that position once but it was a special circumstance.I doubt anyone has feelings for me, but there’s one person i hope does. Ive been cheated on, so i would never hurt someone in that way. Ive considered a nose job. 8 facts: pale as heck, not very tall, easily bruised, shiny & smooth because i just shaved, a lil pudgy, scarred, uncoordinated, jiggly? i recently posted a photo. i notice someones eyes first. the sexiest thing…idk? genuinely love me? or lip biting. i dont have a favorite roleplay bc im an innocent bean. i guess i like dirty talk? i may have a slight praise kink. Sweetest thing? definitely anything involving babies. dirtiest secret? wow i actually dont know. i have, and definitely would, date someone online
Sam: shed have to be a nerd. and sweet. and love animals. i do belive in love at first sight. i dont think i get jealous easily..maybe i do? considering what everyone has said today, i think people have feelings for me. id never cheat. ever. never though of plastic surgery, its just not on my priority list. 8 facts: fit, tall, tan, toned, scarred, bruised, stitched, and yes, COLD. you should know what i look like. i notice their voice first, and what emotion theyre feeling. nothing sexier than a lap dance. i wanna hear every little sound. sweetest thing would be for someone to go on my morning runs with me, it gets lonely. the dirtiest secret? i wanna bang bela talbot
7: when I have the right person I don’t think about anyone else, it’s 24/7 her on my mind
9: just some who makes me feel comfortable, make me laugh and someone I can tell I my doubts
13: in the past i’ve been very jealous but when I trust someone I don’t get jealous easily
21: honestly I think there isn’t someone who has feelings for me
62: when the girl takes control during sex that’s my weak spot
81: @kindvandemaan @stardips @stupidineverything @e-ssentially @zweventussensterren
In traditional Jewish culture, mezuzahs consist of pieces of paper inside of a case that is hung on the doorway of a Jewish home. In Hebrew, the term “mezuzah” equates to “doorpost.” This tradition mostly occurs within the 30 days of a family or individual moving into a new home, but in Israel people tend to hand their mezuzahs immediately.
Inside of the mezuzah case, which is often decorated but can be plain if the owner chooses, is the Torah verses Deuteronomy 6:4-9 and 11: 13-21, versus that serve to bless the house and showcase a Jewish household’s dedication to God. This famous Jewish prayer, also known as Shema, declares God’s unity and the Jewish members’ devotion to him. The sole purpose of the mezuzah case is to protect this prayer, which must be written very carefully, for if it is not in mint condition, it will be invalidated. Both the handwriting and the piece of parchment must not have any defects.
Before hanging the mezuzah in any doorway within the new home besides the bathroom, a blessing must be recited in order for the mezuzah to activate and protect the house. This blessing is read as followed: “Barukh atah Adonai Eloheinu melekh ha’olam, asher kideshanu bemitzvotav vetzivanu liqbo’ah mezuzah.” Upon entering and leaving a home that contains a mezuzah in the doorway, it is tradition to touch the mezuzah and immediately after kiss the hand that touched it.
In addition, the scroll inside of the mezuzah should be checked at least twice every seven years by a qualified scribe, also known as a “sofer.” The sofer will ensure that there are no defects with the scroll so that it can continue to bless the house. Most often, the mezuzah is marked with the letter Shin, which should be written on the top of the scroll after it is rolled so that it is the only visible letter before the scroll is unrolled.
The mezuzah serves to act as a reminder of Jewish faith and as a symbol of God’s protection over the house and whoever enters the house. Through observation of the mezuzah, we are reminded that God is always with us, inside or outside of our homes.
Over the past two years or so, I have found myself slowly drifting away from my lifelong beliefs and more towards something
that I have discovered completely for myself. I grew up in an extremely
Christian home with a mother who has the kind of beliefs that would
make the standard “loving and accepting” Christians cringe. To
summarize, she firmly believes that anyone from the LGBT community will
be going to hell, that Allah is Satan, and that Feminism is an act of the
Devil. Out of all the influences in my life, hers is the #1 that turned
me off of Christianity and I’ll tell you why.
Think about how vast and amazing the Universe is, with its billions of
galaxies and seemingly infinite number of stars. Now to me, it doesn’t
make any sense to say that there is a giant man in the sky sending
people to eternal damnation for loving someone of the same sex. How
petty and small is that? And yet many Christians (or at least the ones I
come into contact with) use this argument as a method to judge and
condemn people. I don’t get it nor will I ever. To me it has always been
okay to be gay, bi, and transexual because that’s the way you’re born. The point is to love each other, not condemn
people for not loving others the specific way you say it should be done.
justifies rape ( Exodus 21:7-11, Deuteronomy 22:28-29, Deuteronomy
22:23-24, Deuteronomy 21:10-14, Zechariah 14:1-2), the killing of
innocent men, women and children (Judges 21:10-24, Exodus 21:15,
Deuteronomy 17:12, Leviticus 21:9, Deuteronomy 13:7-12), and slavery
(Leviticus 25:44-46, Exodus 21:20-21, Luke 12:47-48). Now I understand
that the argument here is that “It was the time period” or “It was the
Old Testament”, but to me, you shouldn’t be able to pick and choose
things from the Bible that you decide to live by. Either it’s all true
or none of it is. Also, why would a God (who apparently intricately
designed us and loves each and every one of us immensely) decide to kill off thousands of the innocent people, including children. I can’t seem to understand it.
Science has never told me to “pray about something” when I’ve been
seeking answers. Science backs up its data and hypotheses with numerous
experiments and numerical data. Anytime I went to my mother with a
concern, the only answer she had was pray about it, and I did. I
spent 18 years of my life praying about things, only to never receive
answers. Not once did I experience a full on “encounter” with God. Sure I
felt happy, emotional, and had a sense of camaraderie when attending
worship sessions, but I noticed that the same feelings were felt when I
attended my University’s football games. Maybe it’s just me?
Now I’m not trying to force my beliefs on anyone (I promise because at
this point I’m not too positive in what I believe) I just think it helps
me to articulate all these feelings and jumbled thoughts that are
continuously building up. If you have any opinions or whatevs please
feel free to share. I’m all ears.

8. Do doctors exams tickle you and how do you react?
- - Actually, and fortunately, no! I’m much, much, much more sensitive to gentle tickles, so the more firm hand that doctors take doesn’t tickle that much! Thank god, or I’d be dead by now!!
9. Have you ever had a ticklish pat-down and what was it like?
- - I’m honestly not sure what that means! Like an actual pat down that you get at the airport or by police??
10. Have you ever had a professional massage and what parts tickled?
- - I’ve never had a professional massage, but people have tried to massage my shoulders and neck. Lets just say… that didn’t go well…
11. Have you ever been tickled in front of people? What was the situation?
- - Yesssss, unfortunately! The time with my ex (Shown here https://ticklishlittleprincess164.tumblr.com/post/162672602330/123716 ) and pretty much every time I’ve been tickled! My best friend tried to tickle my foot when I was laying on a pool float, and he like put my ankle in a headlock and got barely one tickle in before I screamed and kicked him!! At sleepovers, my best friend and whoever we’re with will somehow ALWAYS start having a tickle fight, and I’ll just back up and try to stay out of the conflict. It’s the worst when they say “Well at least you aren’t as ticklish as Lara!” Thankfully they never try to get me for long, or I wouldn’t be alive to tell this tale~!
13. Have you ever been asked, “Are you ticklish?” right before or during an unintentional tickling situation?
- - Ugh yes, one of my exes once tried to hug me from behind, and he kind of slipped his hands under my shirt and onto my sides. And when he felt me tense, he turned and whispered “What, are you ticklish~?” In a knowing voice, and suddenly dug his fingers into my sides!! It’s the worst, I can’t stand hearing that word!!
21. Have you ever had someone suck on your toes? What was it like?
- - Unfortunately, nooo… But maybe someday, and I’ll get back to you!!
27. Unintentional or intentional tickles?
- - I…. That’s a good question… I think I’d prefer intentional tickles, because then at least there isn’t that moment when the other person realises you’re ticklish and tease you about it before tickling you some more! I much prefer my evil to be done intentionally~!
28. Are you known for being ticklish amongst your friends and/or family?
- - My friends, yes. They love it, they always tease me or mention, “Just make sure you don’t tickle Lara if you want to keep your head” Because I flail so much I bruised my best friend’s ribs… Thankfully they never go much further than wiggling their fingers in my sides for a couple seconds or running their finger up my spine, or I’d be dead meat!! ^^
“Mas o meu justo viverá pela fé. E, se retroceder, não me agradarei dele". (Hebreus 10:38)
Os discípulos estavam sem rumo. Estavam sem o seu Mestre. E agora o que será de nós? Provavelmente questionaram-se. A primeira coisa que Pedro fez foi voltar ao passado: pescar (João 21). Jesus tinha dito a Pedro que ele não era mais pescador de peixes e sim de homens. Essa é a primeira coisa de que temos certeza quando a presença de Jesus não está conosco: tendemos a voltar a fazer as coisas antigas, até mesmo pior do que fazíamos.
Pedro disse que ia pescar. Em seguida os discípulos disseram que iria pescar com ele. Pedro tinha um espírito de liderança. Ele era o primeiro a tomar atitude, vemos isso no decorrer dos Evangelhos. Outra lição que podemos tirar disso é que se retrocedermos, poderemos levar uma porrada de gente conosco. Querendo ou não, existe alguém que se espelha em nós, que nos tem como exemplo. Quando nos desviamos, podemos levar algumas pessoas conosco. Não é algo que reflete só em nós, os outros também são afetados.
Já imaginou um bando de pescadores experientes passarem a noite sem pescar nada? E ainda chegar alguém perguntando se eles pescaram alguma coisa? Eles estavam tão decepcionados que só conseguiram dar uma resposta seca: “Nada!” Mas eles não sabia que era o Seu Mestre que havia perguntado. Quando fazemos algo sem o consentimento de Deus, o fracasso é certo. Esse é um dos riscos de retroceder. Dificilmente obteremos êxito naquilo que Deus não nos mandou fazer.
Mas a situação muda. Jesus manda eles jogarem a rede do lado direito do barco. Eles poderiam ter perguntando quem era Jesus para mandá-los fazer isso, afinal, pescaram a noite inteira e nada. Mas sem recuar, eles obedeceram ao Mestre. Acredito que essa deve ter sido a pesca mais vitoriosa que eles fizeram. Era tanto peixe, que mal conseguiam puxar a rede para dentro do barco. Ao fazermos aquilo que o Senhor Jesus aprova, somos vitoriosos. Mas para isso precisamos obedecê-lo, mesmo quando a falta de sucesso for mais do que certa.
E por último, essa história nos ensina que quando cumprimos a vontade do Senhor Jesus, ele prepara um banquete para nós na praia. Nós o obedecemos e Ele nos recompensa com tudo prontinho, com pão e peixe nos esperando. (João 21:9-13)
A Palavra diz que Deus não tem prazer naquele que retrocede. Que volta as antigas obras. Jesus certa vez afirmou: Ninguém, que lança mão do arado e olha para trás, é apto para o reino de Deus” (Lc 9:62). Ele deseja que avancemos, que cumpramos o propósito que nos foi dado. Se Deus nos tirou do nosso passado, é porque Ele não nos quer mais lá. Que possamos prosseguir para Alvo, para o Autor e Consumador da nossa fé. Vivendo uma vida de obediência e submissão ao Senhor.
“Irmãos, não penso que eu mesmo já o tenha alcançado, mas uma coisa faço: esquecendo-me das coisas que ficaram para trás e avançando para as que estão adiante, prossigo para o alvo, a fim de ganhar o prêmio do chamado celestial de Deus em Cristo Jesus.” (Filipenses 3:13-14)
“Estou subindo pra um lugar mais alto. Eu já queimei as pontes com o passado. E em meus olhos vejo o futuro. Tudo novo se fez, tudo novo se faz. E dessa estrada eu não me desvio nunca mais. Estou firme, eu não me desvio nunca mais. Vou avançar, eu vou crescer. Ninguém vai me deter. Meu alvo é Cristo.” (Kleber Lucas)
