  • what he says: i'm fine
  • what he really means: VIKTOR LOVED YURI ALL ALONG? IS THIS WHY HE WANTED YURI TO DO THE EROS DANCE? BECAUSE IT WAS A REMINDER OF WHEN THEY FIRST MET? THE UNINHIBITED SEXINESS OF HIS DRUNKEN POLEDANCE AND THE SHAMELESS REVEALING OF HIS TRUEST DESIRES TOWARDS VIKTOR THOUGH THEY HAD JUST MET AT THE TIME? DID HE WANT TO SPARK A FEELING IN YURI THAT HE HAD ALL ALONG? DID HE WANT YURI ALL TO HIMSELF? AM I OKAY? I DON'T THINK SO. I AM NOT OKAY BECAUSE THIS IS MAKING ME CRY? MY HEART IS ACHING? BUT I'M ALSO REALLY OKAY BECAUSE THIS MAKES ME REALLY HAPPY?

Kubo is a fantastic writer and I just want to praise her because she’s absolutely amazing. 

Just the way that she’s written this series is enough to see how much work, time and effort she’s put into. You can tell that this anime was done by a team who really wanted to make a beautiful story come to life through animation. There is no teasing about the relationship of Yuuri and Viktor, there is no queerbaiting and using those two as complete fan service. They’ve been put into an actual relationship which even mainstream non-animated shows have a hard time doing. 

There is actual character development, story progression and meaningfulness behind this story that is being told. All the characters are unique and shown as their own person with a backstory added to them, they’re not just there. It’s taking place all over the world in different countries and cities and it’s so nice to see all the characters interacting and not just bitterly hating each other. 

It’s been a long time since I’ve been into an anime like I am with this one and honestly, Kubo has done a lot of things that a lot of animes and shows haven’t done. 

She’s just wonderful and this show is incredible. 

Thank you so very much, Kubo, for giving us this show and making the world a little bit of a brighter place.

Did you say prompts!? Bc if you've got the time and feel like it I'd really like to read words about deaf!obi-wan and how that changed some things while others stayed the same

This one took some doing, because I wanted to do it right.  I had to decide if Obi-Wan was going to be Deaf, or deaf (yes, there is a difference- culturally Deaf and just physically deaf/hoh), and also how the Jedi would deal with such a thing.  Would he be deaf from birth, or would it be because of an accident or illness?  Plus, I had to make sure to get someone who has some experience with deaf (and Deaf) people looked over it.  Since my Mom is a ASL interpreter, she was able to help with it. It’s not perfect, but I hope I at least got more right than wrong.

~~~~~~~~~

Obi-Wan Kenobi was the only Initiate that didn’t look up when another of the younglings squealed that a Master was visiting.  The Master was overwhelmed, but eventually, he noticed the lone Initiate still reading by himself in the corner.  The rest of the younglings didn’t seem to notice the Master’s distraction.

Qui-Gon Jinn frowned to himself.  The boy seemed to be alone, and that seemed to be a normal state of things, if the way he didn’t look up was any indication.  Was he normally shy, or did the other children dislike him for some reason?

Qui-Gon decided that he’d ask the Crèche Master about it. 

~~~~~~~~~~~~

Twelve-year-old Obi-Wan felt it when someone sat next to him, but didn’t look up.  His book was interesting, and it was probably just Bruck Chun, who loved to say things to him while hiding his mouth and then tell the Masters that Obi-Wan was ignoring him.

A large hand was placed on top of his bookpad. Startled, Obi-Wan looked up.  A human Jedi Obi-Wan had never seen before was staring at him.  “I’m sorry, Master,” Obi-Wan said.  “I didn’t realize it wasn’t…”

The Master smiled at him.  “Can you read lips?” he asked, making sure to enunciate. *Do you need me to sign?* he asked, using Standard Sign.

“Yes, Master.  I can read lips.  I also know Standard Sign, Corellian, Twi’lek, Gran, and Alderaanian sign,” Obi-Wan both said and signed.

“Which do you prefer?” The Master asked, using both StanSign and voice.

Obi-Wan knew the answer to that trick question. “Whichever you want, Master,” he chirped.

*No, young one.  Which is best for you, not me.  I’m fluent in half a dozen Sign Languages.  Pick the one you know best.  Unless you’d prefer to lipread.*

Obi-Wan stared at him.  The only other Jedi who cared what he wanted was Master Yoda, and the old master could only manage Gran sign.

The Master sighed.  *Do so few ask?* he asked.

*They ask, Master,* he signed.  *But they don’t really care.  They want to be told that they can use whatever they want.  They want to know that I can just lipread.*

The Master scowled down at the table for a moment. *In the future, young Obi-Wan Kenobi…*

Obi-Wan jumped.  The Master had used the sign that Master Tarrirel had made for him when he was three.

The Master smirked.  *In the future, tell me when you want me to use sign, and when you’d prefer to lipread.*

Obi-Wan blinked at him.  *Yes, Master,* he finally signed.

*Good,* the Master said.  *My name is Qui-Gon Jinn.* he fingerspelled out his name. *Most of those who know my sign use this one.*  His hands flashed through the Q-sign tapped to his chest twice, and forehead once. *I have a friend in town who is Deaf, and he gave me the sign after my master said that I thought more with my heart than my head.*

Obi-Wan smiled.  “Qui-Gon Jinn,” he said out loud.

*Very close, just a little more emphasis on the “Gon”*

*Yes, Master Qui-Gon.*

Qui-Gon smiled at the boy.  *I realize that this is unusual, Initiate Kenobi.  But, if you are willing, I would like to take you as my Padawan.*

Obi-Wan’s eye widened as the Master stunned him once again.  He’d never expected to be chosen.  No Master wanted to deal with a Padawan who couldn’t hear.  “Are you sure?” he asked out loud.

Qui-Gon smiled.  *I know you cannot hear, young one.  I can teach you to use the Force to compensate for that.  And I will never have trouble communicating with you.  I know StanSign, Twi’lek sign, Wookiee Sign, the Felucian Dialect, Mando’a hand signals, and Corellian sign.  I would teach you those you don’t know.  Would you like to be my Padawan?*

Obi-Wan threw himself at the man.  *”YES!”* he exclaimed in all the ways he knew.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Anakin Skywalker stared up at the man that had run up with him to see Master Qui-Gon.  “Master?” the man asked in a soft, oddly inflected voice.

Master Qui-Gon looked up at the man.  “Ah, Obi-Wan.  Good timing, I wasn’t sure I could have lasted too much longer,” he said. He pulled himself together and stopped supporting himself with his hands.  He continued in Twi’lek sign, which he’d asked if Anakin knew. *Obi-Wan, I want you to meet Anakin Skywalker.  Anakin, this is Knight Obi-Wan Kenobi.  I was his teacher, before he was Knighted last year, and he agreed to help me on this mission.*  He added an unfamiliar sign then continued *Anakin helped us get the parts we needed to fix the ship.*

Anakin smiled at Obi-Wan.  “Nice to meet you,” he said, making sure to look straight at him. He knew some slaves who couldn’t hear. *Do you need me to sign?* he asked.

Obi-Wan smiled down at him.  *You don’t have to, young one, so long as I can see your lips.  Do you have a sign-name?  And do you only know Twi’lek sign?*

Anakin nodded and gestured.  An A-sign moving as if it were a wrench, which his mom and their deaf neighbor had given him.  *I know Huttese and Toydarian sign too.* he said.  “And I can speak basic, Huttese, Twi’lek, and Bocce.”

The man looked amused.  *I think Twi’lek sign or spoken basic would be best.*

“Yes, sir,” Anakin said, still staring at him. He liked this man.

Qui-Gon dropped into a sign language that Anakin didn’t know, though he did recognize his own name-sign. 

“Oh,” Obi-Wan.  He turned back to Anakin.  “Well then, Anikin…”

“Obi-Wan,” Qui-Gon said, gently placing his hand in Obi-Wan’s field of view. 

“Anakin?” Obi-Wan asked. 

Anakin nodded.

“Let that be a lesson, Anakin.  Don’t hesitate to correct me if I pronounce your name wrong.”

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Anakin didn’t like what he was seeing.  Too many Jedi were ignoring Obi-Wan.  The boy hurried to catch up to his second-favorite Jedi.  He tugged on the Knight’s sleeve to get his attention.  Obi-Wan looked down and smiled.  *Why do they treat you worse than a slave?* he asked.

Obi-Wan frowned.  “They don’t, Anakin,” he said out loud.

*Yes they do,* Anakin said.  *At least back home, the Masters talked to slaves, even if it was just orders.  I just saw that old Gand ignore you.  He asked me a question, but didn’t even try to get your attention.*

Obi-Wan shook his head.  *He is a Jedi Knight, Anakin, and he has the right to ask questions.*

*But it wasn’t just him.  The five humans we just passed, they bowed to other Jedi, even those as young as me, but they ignored you.*

Obi-Wan sighed.  *It is the way it’s always been, since I lost my hearing when I was two. Most Jedi don’t understand why Master Qui-Gon chose me.  But that doesn’t matter.  I am a Jedi.*

*That’s stupid.  You’re a great Jedi, better than any of them.*

Obi-Wan laughed softly.  *It is the way it is, not just in the Temple.  Those of us who cannot hear have to fight to be recognized. There are, of course, those who don’t think that.  I have friends, and Master Qui-Gon, and others.*

Anakin scowled.  *I don’t like it.*

Obi-Wan clapped a hand on his shoulder.  *Just ignore it, young one.  I do.  Now, we need to head to the Council Chambers.  Master Qui-Gon wants you to meet them.*

*Are they stupid about you too?*

Obi-Wan laughed again.  *Not all of them.*  He ruffled Anakin’s hair, then smiled at the boy.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Padawan Anakin Skywalker knew he had the best Master in the Jedi Order.  Master Obi-Wan was teaching him how to sign in Standard, and then Obi-Wan wanted to learn Huttese sign.  Obi-Wan could use the Force to know when someone was talking, and he could pick up a general idea of what they said, too, even if he couldn’t hear it.  He knew almost a dozen sign languages, and four spoken languages.  He was amazing with his lightsaber- he’d killed the Sith on Naboo, and saved Master Qui-Gon’s life.  He was almost as good a pilot as Anakin, and he hadn’t even scolded Anakin for flying that Nubian fighter.  He understood when Anakin had told him that he’d stayed in the cockpit just like Qui-Gon told him to do.

Anakin didn’t care what anyone else thought, Obi-Wan was awesome.  And he liked Anakin too.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

To make the story flow easier, I used standard English grammar for the sign languages, but that’s generally not the case for modern Sign Languages.  ASL, for example, is grammatically more like French than English.  And I imagine that there must be hundreds, if not thousands of Sign Languages in GFFA, and Obi-Wan is more like a polyglot than anything.

In this universe, Obi-Wan works harder to prove he can be a Jedi, and his therefore Knighted a year or so before Naboo. Qui-Gon asks him for help, and episode one happens mostly as in canon.  There’s no hard feelings for Qui-Gon trying to take Anakin as a Padawan, and Obi-Wan isn’t worried about Anakin taking his place, so he’s more relaxed. And, of course, because Obi-Wan has studied more and tried to prove to the Jedi who didn’t believe in him, he manages to keep up with Qui-Gon and Maul and saves Qui-Gon’s life.

This Obi-Wan is much happier than the canon Obi-Wan.

A quick question for anyone who cares before I make any decisions- if I were to make these into individual charms (obviously I would remake them digitally and fix up some rough patches), would anyone be interested in buying some?
I get really self conscious when I think about selling my art or even doing paid commissions just because I feel like no one would want to buy anything ;w; I also don’t have a redbubble or PayPal or anything set up yet, so I don’t want to waste my time getting all of that situated and then nothing happens.

Hey, what’s wrong?

I have no idea what I’m doing, I don’t know which pictures to choose because I have no idea what people expect to see on “online portfolios”. Why did I let you and Zayn convince me this was a good idea?

Come here *stands up*
You got this okay, just pick the ones you like the most. Hell, put them all if you want, it’s your portfolio after all. You got this!

You really think so?

*answers between kisses*
Yeah, I do. I’ll tell you what, how about I start making us dinner while you finish it up?

Or I could just keep kissing you…

One of the themes that has always resonated with me as a reader of you work is that oh so fine line between "good" and "evil", which are basically points of view. Unseelie doesn't mean you're evil and vice versa Seelie doesn't mean you're good. Like JK Rowling said, it is our choices that show us who we are, far more than our abilities. I've always liked how your writing captured that. Ahem i.e Gwyn Love your work Pia, very inspiring stuff amongst all the epicness of the fae and crazy romances~

*rolls around quietly*

Thank you so much anon. <3

It’s probably one of the more ongoing themes in all of my writing (regardless of whether it’s fanfiction or not). I think it’s partly because I was raised with a personal belief system that didn’t accept a black and white binary of good/evil - in a world that largely did (because monotheistic traditions like Christianity push this binary really hard - so you have God/Devil, Heaven/Hell, Good/Evil - which is why early Disney villains are almost never redeemable, because they’re following a Christian paradigm. Whereas Ghibli/Miyazaki villains are almost always redeemable, because they follow a Shinto paradigm that rejects this binary - so you end up with really complicated antagonists like Lady Eboshi from Princess Mononoke, or protagonists who do ‘bad’ things, like Haku from Spirited Away).

Anyway I’m not going to go into a huge spiel about it here, as tempting as it is. But I was - at one point - actually going to do my PhD media studies thesis on binary paradigms of good/evil in children’s movies, and potential impacts this has on viewers. So you know, I guess it’s a ‘thing’ of mine.

Much more fun to just write it out in fiction though. :D

i really want a psych ward au thats actually good and accurate and just .. so far from asotm ya feel? gerard wearing his skeleton onesie for the entire 2 weeks he's there. frank falling asleep right in group therapy because they can't figure out the right cocktail to fix both his schizophrenia and anxiety at the same time without knocking him the fuck out. they share a room and bond over their hatred of the 7:30 am wakeup time and no caffeine rule. gallows humor. making cheesy arts n crafts

together in OT. gee draws a picture of sweet pea based on frank’s description of her and frank giggles and says he /almost/ made her ugly enough. making up nicknames for the bored nurses who are on their psych rotations. a couple of months after gerard gets out, he sees frank at the coffee shop he frequents, knows its him because of the wonderfully hideous dog with him. he doesn’t say anything, isn’t sure if it’s appropriate, but frank’s there the next day and the day after that and fuck it,
he can at least say hi. he does and frank is like, so excited to see him, no awkardness. he introduces sweet pea and they sit and talk for at least an hour and a half without noticing. gerard gives frank his number and they text and hang out all the time and become best friends and then more than friends. their relationship isn’t always easy - gerard has to keep an eye on the pill containers to make sure frank takes his meds and frank knows from october through february he’s going to have to be
extra diligent about making sure gerard’s doing okay and they slip up sometimes but gee honestly can’t think of a single time he’s felt better in his entire life and holy fuck this got away from me i’m so sorry

pls dont be sorry omfg i love this so much,, thank you

anonymous asked:

I just re-read Shadows and Light, and was surprised to read that Jack liked Albion. I know Fae Tales are a little different, so I was curious whether Seelie King Albion is pretty much the same person Jack knew in SALverse. We don't see much of Albion in SAL. The guy we see in Fae Tales seems so...pompous? (And he acts like a complete dick, but I feel like the pomposity would be more off-putting to Jack.) What did Albion think of Jack? Or did he think of him at all?

Albion is pompous, and I mean I imagined him that way even in SAL. But we were always dealing with Jack’s opinions on people, and Jack had a way of ascribing ‘good’ to Seelie and ‘bad’ to Unseelie and it was hard for him to see past that, with the exception of Gwyn, who he took personal issue with because Gwyn was always or often using or manipulating him.

But yeah, Albion I always imagined as a character who wanted more power, and who was a very competent and self-invested war general who was there to a) support Gwyn and b) put himself in line as next for the throne. Also keep in mind that Gwyn knows this last part re: Albion in general, so Gwyn automatically tends to see Albion as a bit more pompous overall, and power hungry. Though Albion doesn’t really show his ‘true’ self until he’s actually King of the Seelie. Until that point, he genuinely offers Gwyn his support, and it’s a real / legitimate thing.

As for Albion and Jack. I always just imagined that Albion thought Jack was vaguely interesting, but also none of his business, because Jack wasn’t a real fae (and Albion is extremely like - ‘all fae are better than humans, and all sea fae are better than land fae’). He mostly was just like ‘okay what do we need to do to sort this mess out.’ I doubt he cared about Jack very much, or any of the Guardians. But he did care a lot about defeating Augus.

But yeah, seeing characters through Jack’s lens influenced the perception of characters a lot. Gwyn did go through some changes. But most of the rest stayed relatively consistent. We were just seeing them from two pretty different standpoints? And Albion never really got more than a handful of lines of dialogue in SAL either.

you know how sometimes you’re having a bad day or an okay day but then someone does something nice for you and you just smile for a long time?? i want to be someone who makes other smile like that

anonymous asked:

I'm really interested in anatomy and the idea of collecting cruelty-free bones. I just found VC recently and I was wondering if you could maybe tell me what it's about and how to get started. I've wanted to clean up the animals that I find for a long time but I've been hesitant for hygiene reasons. When you find an animal, how can you be sure that you won't get sick from handling it? What if it died from an illness? Any resources you know of would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Hello!

Really, it’s just about practising good hygiene. Keep the animals you are processing in their own area, always clean up after yourself, wear gloves, wash your hands, use hand sanitizer if it makes you feel safer. You can wear a mask too if you want, and an apron.

I am not the safest with animals I find anymore - I should be, and I don’t recommend it, but as lax as I am I have never gotten sick, because I always at least wash my hands and wipe down surfaces that got any body fluids on it. You are unlikely to get sick from a carcass if you take basic precaution and use common sense (basically don’t go drinking maceration water, careful not to stab yourself on a scalpel or claw/etc) freezing a fresh carcasses for a few days will kill parasites.

I work with sick wild animals, and handle a lot of sick dead animals - for them, the general protocol is just wear gloves and be careful. Maybe look up potential zoonoses (diseases animals can pass to humans) of species you are interested in picking up, or that exist in your area (for example, no rabies in England but rabies in America). This is the same for working with live animals, and I went to college to study Animal Management before I started picking up dead animals so I had already learned safe practises for that.

It’s good to be wary because it means you are actively striving to be safe. If you are worried about bacteria from found bones, a scrub in some dishsoap is a simple way to clean them, or popping them in some peroxide will kill them germs deader than the skull they were living on.

I’m not the best at explaining, so if you have any specific questions feel free to pop me another message, and anyone else please feel free to chime in with advice!

Episode 10 of Yuri on Ice gave me so much happiness and love

This whole episode  was just beautiful. The engagement! Yurio making friends with Otabek Altin from Kazakhstan and saying it was his first friends (but really it’s not because he’s friends with Yuri and Victor). Also how when Phichit saw the rings he was just so happy and congratulating them on their engagement. And also how everyone was cool with their engagement and even Otabek was happily clapping for them. 

But it made start thinking, that i love every single one of them in my own way and I really want Yuri to win gold medal, also because that’s what Victor said Yuri needs to do before they get officially married, but the other: Yurio, Phichit, Otabek, JJ, and the others all worked hard to be at the finals and win the coveted Gold Medal. It hard to just say i only want Yuri to win gold medal. Why can’t tell just win the gold, like they all get the exact scores and they’re all tied for first place. 

Another things that loved about this episode was when Victor was on the beach and just starring at his ring and saying how he learned about his L-word from Yuri!!!

BUT THE BEST THING OF THEM ALL WAS THE END WHERE THEY WERE SHOWING THE CREDITS ANS THERE WAS YURI DRUNK AND DANCING HIS DANCE OFF WITH YURIO AND HIS POLE DANCE. OH MY GOD!!!!! AND HOW WE PRETTY MUCH SAW THE MOMENT WHEN VICTOR FELL IN LOVE WITH YURI!!!!! 

So lately my wife and I have been very risky. She doesn’t necessarily want another child, she just likes the feeling of me inside her and the risk turns her on.

I however want another pretty bad. This makes the next week or so pretty rough for me. She wants sex tonight, and she won’t want to use a condom, which means I’ll need to pull out.

I’m really considering not and just seeing what happens. Does that make me a bad person?

I don't understand some of you Queens

Maybe it’s not my job too. But some of the things you say and do just kill me. Maybe it’s because I’m not a woman? Yep probably why. But I really can’t stand the constant Black male bashing. Yes..some of us are dogs. Yeah a lot of us can be disrespectful. And yeah the light skin vs dark skin thing is played out but news flash :“ We are human.” A lot of us are trying to find happiness just as badly as you are ladies. A lot of us want to go the extra mile to make your day better. But who in the fuck wants to be in a relationship with someone who spits negativity? I hate those check your phone , where you been at? , you ain’t shit saying bitxhes . Kuz that’s what they are overly insecure verbally abusive bitches.
