This all happened while one of my friends was dm'ing. As a bit of context we were walking through a volcano hunting for a few things for each of us, there was a elf ranger, halfling rouge, human samurai, a human gunslinger and a human wizard(brother sister combo) and a gnome bard (me), my main reason for wanting to enter this volcano was to kill a greater fire elemental to craft a flame sword. But our other reason was to hunt down a group of bandits who kept causing the samurai’s home city problems. And for our help we received a sentient airship

Samurai: well that’s the last of them. Let’s get back to the airship and get home. I don’t like being here.
Bard (me): no! We can’t leave yet! You all promised me that if I killed four of them we could rest up at their camp and go and find the fire elemental I need for my sword!
Gunslinger *sighs heavily*: I just know this will end badly but I guess he did kill seven of them.
Bard: because I was the only one who could.. I mean seriously. How was I, the one who was able to kill the seven head bandits but everyone else sat around with their thumbs up their butts?
-needless to say I was actin like a jerk for my character-
Samurai: fine! We will go!
Bard:yay!
Rouge,OOC: look, in just gonna follow, and say I did something, but there is really nothing here for me.
*everyone laughs as we rest up before our fight, long story short we find the elemental and realize it was a horrible idea*
Samurai, who is almost dead: can we run now!?
Bard, while at only one hp: NO! We almost got him! I can tell!
Gunslinger: why not just charm the thing?
DM: you could do that. Doubt it will work.
Gunslinger: yeah if I did that it wouldn’t work, but bards are the cause of all half creatures! *the gunslinger and the wizard both turn to me*
Wizard, OOC: I will give you ten bucks right now, if you can seduce the greater fire elemental and get us out of this fight.
Me, after having thought for a while: might as well give it a shot. *rolls a bat 20*
DM: I can’t believe that this is about to happen.. well the 67’ greater fire elemental seams to have fallen for the 4'2" gnome…
me, turning to the wizard who has a 20 in his hand, not even caring that I don’t have change, saying that I earned it.
-friends reference it constantly-

anonymous asked:

Would you be willing to share some of your thoughts about Yuri's motivation over the rings, at least? I'd be curious to read your thoughts especially since that scene in particular has a lot of cultural terminology and background that doesn't translate perfectly for International audiences to begin with.

This is a hard one because, as you wrote, I think there are cultural differences especially regarding the concept of “omamori” (protective charms).

First of all it would be very useful to read this interesting and complete post about “omamori”. Although regarding the part about the rings being round and that symbolizing a bond I’m not sure, I think that might be reading too deeply. At the end there’s also my comment on the meaning of the word “omajinai”, which is also not that easy to translate…

This said, the rest under the cut. Of course this is just my personal interpretation based on the Japanese dialogues in the anime and partly on interviews (I think it doesn’t even clash with the “soulmates” thing in the interview from CREA). All quotes from the dialogues are translated by me and do not use the English sub/dub. I am translating “omamori” as “protective charm”.

Warning: it’s kind of long and has pictures because if I don’t explain it thoroughly it might be hard to get my point across.

Description:  “hi, you don’t know me, we’re from different houses, and i’m not exactly sure how to tell you this, but i think your cat is in love with my toad??” was all you wanted to tell him. Only it goes terribly wrong when Park Jimin mistakes you for one of his one night stands. You hope that’s the last time you’ll ever speak to him, only it’s too late. Once you’re on his radar, you won’t be able to get rid of him.

A/N: inspired by a prompt i saw floating around tumblr!! although it got reaaaaally off track and long


selcouth (adj.) - unfamiliar, rare, strange and yet marvelous

“Agh!” you yelp, hopping backwards and scrambling for something to hold onto. You get a glimpse of a long, fluffy orange tail before it disappears under your bed. One of your house mates, Heeyeon, looks up from where she’s doing her Defense Against the Dark Arts homework.

“Why are you so loud?” she sighs, leaning back onto her hands. She watches as you slowly crouch down.

“That stupid cat is here again,” you say, frowning. Heeyeon slides off her bed and pads over to join you by yours.

“Again?” Both of you lift up the dark blue bed sheets that cover your bed, just in time to see a streak of orange fly out. You cry out, while Heeyeon fishes out her wand and flicks it. The door to your dorm slams shut, with the orange cat colliding into it.

Mreowwww,” it wails, scratching at the dark mahogany door. You wince at the noise. You’re sure there’s going to be scratch marks.

“How does it even get in here?” you mutter as both of you slowly walk towards it. You and Heeyeon decide to stop a good two feet away when the cat spins around and hisses at you, its fur bushing up.

“I swear, the poor cat is in love with your dumb toad,” Heeyeon comments, shaking her head. “Last time we found it, it was like kissing it.”

You glare at her. “Okay, it’s not exactly my toad. It’s Jungkook’s, and I’m just helping him look over it while he’s gone for Christmas.”

“Same thing,” says Heeyeon, tentatively using her wand to poke the large cat. It whips its head around and slashes at her.

“What the hell!” She scoots back, barely avoiding its claws. “Why is it so violent?”

“Well don’t poke at it, obviously.” You both watch as it continues to scratch at the door. A few moments later, the door swings open. 

Kyulkyung, your best friend since your first year at Hogwarts, screams, tripping over the orange blur as the cat streaks out of the room. She places a hand over her heart, her large brown eyes wide.

What in Merlin’s beard,” she gasps, “just happened?”

“Some cat keeps getting into the Ravenclaw common room and into our dorms,” you say, standing up from where you were crouching and patting down your robes.

“I’m seriously wondering how it gets in here, like you need to know the answer to the riddle,” adds Heeyeon. Kyulkyung’s eyebrows furrow.

“That cat seems awfully familiar,” she muses. “I feel like I’ve seen it around the corridors near Slytherin.”

Heeyeon wrinkles her nose. Back then, Slytherin and Gryffindor were mortal enemies. But now, it was your house, Ravenclaw, that absolutely despised Slytherin. Both houses were full of intelligent and clever students, causing a lot of competition. At first, it was just house points and academics, but soon it escalated to even Quidditch.

“That’s it!” Kyulkyung suddenly snaps her fingers, a triumphant look on her face. “I know whose cat that is.”

“Who?” you ask, heading back to your bed to collect your books for your next class of the day, which is Charms. Though it is Christmas break, classes still go on. They are easier though, the usual academic rigor gone since most students aren’t here. You take this chance to further your studies and learn ahead.

“The Slytherin hottie Park Jimin.”

You trip on your robes.

//

“Okay, so, how am I supposed to tell him?” Charms had just ended, and you, Kyulkyung, and Heeyeon are now entering the Dining Hall. All three of you eye the Slytherin table, eyes trained on where a certain boy is sitting with a few of his friends. You are surprised he didn’t leave for Christmas break.

One of the brightest I ever taught. Vivacious, you know. Charming girl. I used to tell her she ought to have been in my house. Very cheeky answers I used to get back, too.’”

My Clexa Con Experience

I have taken a few days between the Con ending and now, I figured it would give me time to process what exactly happened that magical weekend… Turns out, it only made the job harder.

To articulate what happened, what I and many who attended the Con experienced- is near to impossible to do without sounding cheesy or ideological. But it was. That’s exactly what it was.

We created a space where everyone was accepted. We created a space where people of all ages, races, sexual orientation, gender identity, and belief system felt loved and accepted. Above all, we created a safe space where people could be vulnerable without fear of judgement. For those three days we had created a sort of Utopua for ourseves; no one fought, everyone was respectful, there was constructive conversations about race, representation, and how we could make our world a better place.

I arrived to Bally’s not expecting much, maybe 200-300 people- what I was met with was a convention center filled and a line that went on way past my wildest imagination. I picked up my camera, slapped on my “staff” badge, and I got to work.

Walking around the convention center I was met with so many beautiful faces. I tried to strike up a conversation with everyone I met before I take the picture- you can look in the eyes of anyone I had taken a picture with over that weekend. It’s my firm belief the difference between a good shot and a great shot is the relationship you build between a subject and yourself, you can see it in their eyes exactly what they’re thinking… If they like you or not, if they’re comfortable or not, if they want to be there or not.

I hope when my photos come out you can see what I saw through that lens… A group of amazing, passionate, beautiful women from all walks of life and all places.

Now getting to what I assume all of you have read this far for: Yes, Katherine, Dominique, Natasha, Elise, Elizabeth, Rachel, Zoie, Sarah, Amy, Jasika, and everyone are some of the nicest, most sincere people I’ve ever met. But I want to talk about a particular couple right now… WayHaught, or Kat and Dom. Listen to me when I tell you- I have never met two nicer, down to earth, smart, beautiful and incredible women. When Dominique talks to you, you feel like you two are the only ones in the room, she engages you in a way that’s almost hypnotozing, she makes physical contact to make sure you know she’s genuinely listening to what you’re saying… And Kat, where do I even begin. If you’ve ever watched an interview or a video of Kat talking, you can hear the kindness in her voice. When you talk to her you feel an almost safety blanket put around you, that she’s there for you no matter what.

The Shoot, WayHaught, and Hollstein panel was absolutely insane- and you could tell thqt the actresses thought it was just as bonkers as we did. I also want to take a moment to recognize all of the amazing panelists/interviewers- you guys made a hard job look easy. And Dana, having Elise and Natasha read from Clexa/Xena and Gabrielle/Carol scripts was one of the greatest things ever done on a panel EVER. It was unbelievable. Everyone I met over that weekend kept repeating the same question over and over… “Is this really happening?”

Yes. It happened.

I also met many people in the industry that I’ve long admired, notably Emily Andras (If you know me well, you know I was on board with Wynonna Earp since day one). I also took her writing class, the central theme of it being a WayHaught wedding- (she knows us too well 👀) and I learned so much valuable writing/industry rules to follow and goals to keep working on that I will never forget… Least of all my favorite piece of advice, “You know you’ve made it the first time you say ‘no’ in the writers room.”

Oh… And did I mention Sara Ramirez showed up? So, let me tell you a little story- on Saturday I worked about 10 hours, just photographing everyone and everything. I realized I had to finish a 5 page paper due for my English class that I had to get in before midnight, so at 10 p.m. I get to my hotel, write my essay and send it in… I then get peer Pressured into going into the “Sinful” party (Thanks Evan and Sam 😜) and didn’t get back to my hotel until around 3:30 am… So I slept in and unfortunately missed the Queer POC representation panel (the one I was really looking forward to) but by pure luck they were doing a part 2 later on! So… I get to the panel, and I use the term panel loosely as it was more of a very large group discussion about everything from race to safe spaces and who shows up? Sara Ramirez in all of her beautiful Bisexual glory. After that, she sort of became a panelist as well- talking about mental health (which hey ClexaCon 2018 how about a mental health panel!) And the difficulties growing up Bisexual and biracial. After the panel the entire room had a group hug.

Believe me when I tell you, Sara is one of the most charming people I met that weekend- and I learned more than I could ever thank her and the panel for. Being a queer white woman I know of many things, I know about mental health issues because I’ve suffered them, I know what it’s like to be in a wheelchair for an extended period of time and the difficulties that entails (and I also know how hard it is to re-learn how to walk), I know about being gay, and I know about having white privelage.

What I don’t know is race, what it means to be biracial, trans, Bisexual, asexual, gender non conforming, and many many other things. And I will never pretend that I do. Because I can’t possibly know what I haven’t experienced. That’s why as a screenwriter and someone who tells stories it was imperative for me to ask the amazing and diverse people in that room what I can do to help tell their stories and if it was okay to ask for them to help me do so, what they wanted to see in strong female characters that represents who they are. They were so gracious and kind, they gave so many wonderful suggestions and guidelines to work on that I will always keep in mind. I didn’t say much during the panel but that was the entire point of being a white woman in a room about Queer POC representation… It was my job to shut up and listen to them. And I’m so glad I did.


To Alexia, Sam, Lisa, Evan, literally ALL of the amazing organizers and volunteers- we have made something that will last for years to come. I hope to see you all next year for ClexaCon 2018, because there’s no way we’re letting this little piece of Utopia go.

Summary: All Luna wants is for her friends to be happy. Harry and Draco aren’t going to make it easy for her, but that’s okay. She has a plan.

Review: So soft and so pure, with such a wonderful aura of positivity and well being and sheer happiness!!! I truly can’t deal with how beautiful and charming this was, as you can tell from all the adjectives I jumble into this review…

This is written through Luna’s perspective, and gosh - this Luna is truly the most darling and strong and wonderful character ever. It’s just so respectful to canon, it took my breath away. You see, Luna has a project to help all her friends get what they really want in their lives. And she goes about getting this done in the most delightfully sneaky, funny and earnest ways. Of course, her pushes directed towards Harry and Draco result in the most wonderful start of their relationship, after all the quiet watching they indulged in before Luna set her sights on them!

This fic is so lighthearted and well intentioned, with the most wonderful details and characters giving a weight to this brilliant story. It will absolutely leave you with the biggest smile on your face in the end.

BTS Reacting To Their Girlfriend Having Insecurities.

Kim Namjoon:
He’d be quick to catch the things you dislike about yourself and would feel dissapointed in you for not loving yourself the way you are. He’d always throw you little hints about how much he adores your smile and always tell unfunny jokes to see you smile more.

“Did you know you’re so much more attractive when you smile?”

Kim Seokjin:
He’d have a hard time to understand that you could hate something about yourself because to him, you’re the literal description of perfection and he wouldn’t even dare to think about changing your look.

“The things you hate about yourself are the things I find charming about you.”

Min Yoongi:
When you tell him about the things you dislike about yourself, he’d feel quite sad for you because he knows how you feel and would try everything in his might to make you think different about yourself.

“When you look into that mirror I want you to tell me about the thing you like the most about you and we’ll go from there.”

Jung Hoseok:
He’d feel quite sad when he notices you not smiling as much because of you feeling unconfident about it and would hate that you think that way about yourself because to him, your gorgeous gummy smile defines you.

“Don’t hide that smile, without it you don’t shine as brightly.”

Kim Taehyung:
Whenever you’d start doubting something about yourself, he’d be quick to disagree with you and list all the things you should find pretty about yourself and not to worry about the things no one but you notices.

“Focus on me and only me. If I say you’re pretty, you sure as hell are.”

Park Jimin:
Jimin would live for the things you’re insecure about without knowing about your insecurities and tell you how pretty you think you are, meaning it from the bottom of his heard. When you confess your insecurities to him, he’d be speechless and not believe that you actually think that way about yourself.

“I think those ‘issues’ are the most beautiful thing about my queen.”

Jeon Jungkook:
Instead of telling you not to think that way about yourself, he’d listen to your problems thoughtfully and give you time to think about why you’re insecure about certain things and then tell you what he’s insecure about in attempt to make you feel better.


Love, Youngmi~

  • Remus: James has begged me to tell you about him so that you'll fall in love with him.
  • Lily: Okay...?
  • Remus: First thing you should know about James is that he showers about once a week. Second thing you should know about James is that he can't go a day without speaking to Sirius so you'll probably get two for the price of one. Third thing you should know about James is that sleeps with a stuffed dragon named Fireball. I don't think he can sleep without it.
  • Lily: Er... nice.
  • ..
  • James: So did you tell Lily how manly and charming I am?
  • Remus: Totally!
In second grade they had one of those in classroom toilets so if you farted people could hear you

I once sat in the bathroom for like thirty minutes and I guess the teacher figured out that I was reading a book in there cuz she banged on the door and forced me to come out.

She called me “princess” and let me tell you something.

I’ve always had a problem with female pronouns and names.

I got really pissed.

She then said “one day when you’re wrinkled you’ll appreciate not having to spend thirty minutes on the toilet.”

And I just blurted out “I won’t be wrinkled, I’m not white like you.”

Anyway that’s the story of how I met the vice principal and she became my hero cuz she laughed her ass off.

It's Not Wrong to Dream About Prince Charming

You know what I hate in society? People telling girls it’s wrong to fantasize about a perfect guy. That it’s wrong to have these unattainable standards that men have to live up to. I understand, every human has their flaws and men are included in that. But my Prince Charming is out there and you can’t tell me what I can or cannot expect in my future husband. Maybe he will have flaws, a lot of them. But they won’t be anger, stubbornness, or pride. My true love will not call me names, tear me down, or make me feel less than he is. My future love will be only love and only kindness and only gentleness and loyalty and patience. He will not raise his voice at me for no reason and he will not wrongfully punish or abuse our children. Maybe this man doesn’t exist in the modern world. Nobody is perfect. But I will hold every man I ever meet to this standard of what a man should be. And if they don’t measure up, that’s their loss, not mine. Not all men are monsters, but I’m done kissing frogs hoping they turn into a prince.
