I've been avoiding it for so long

3

I have recently become utterly smitten with the Society of Gentlemen book series by KJ Charles. The book covers are so disappointing and bland and do not do these characters justice AT ALL so I needed to draw the boys myself.


If you like Regency-era stories about gentlemen who like other gentlemen then you should check this series out; it’s got some lovely romance and friendships and supporting-each-other-through-hardship and era politics and scandal and drama and pining.  Not to mention bi and demi and trans characters, and none of the conflicts revolve around anyone being ashamed of their sexuality. Oh, and they all have HAPPY ENDINGS! Also people actually communicate and it avoids so many stupid misunderstandings that are so common in love stories. 

(Basically everything I’ve ever wanted in historical romance and more) 

After the betrayal of Zarkon, It was difficult finding a new Paladin for the Black Lion. Where accepting the position would instantly be put on top of Zarkon’s kill list. The King himself piloting was too much of a high risk and the Black Lion herself refusing to search out for potential candidates since the broken trust of the previous Pilot. 

At that moment, only one name was coming to Coran’s mind that had the chance to reach out to the Black Lion and lead Voltron. 

‘Xom’.

in other words, I just realised how well ‘Xom’ fits in the Black Paladin role.

my friends 7 year old sister told me “the best thing about life is that there is ice cream” and y'all i couldn’t agree with a 7 year old more than i did then

Hi there! I was wondering, do you think it's possible for a Fi using type to be really people-pleasing? I've been debating whether I'm an intj or infj lately, and in most ways I relate more to descriptions of TeFi, but I also tend to alter my behavior depending on who I'm with and get really concerned about what certain people think of me, which are traits I often see associated with Fe. Sorry if this is a bit long, thank you for reading! ❤

(Gif: Marie Antoinette. SFP.)

Fi’s can hate conflict just like a Fe, but their motive can often be, “I don’t know how to deal with your emotions so let’s just avoid them, shall we?” So the answer is yes, but the motives are different. WHY are you people-pleasing? HOW are you people-pleasing? What does this people-pleasing GET YOU?

I people-please at work, because I have to, it’s my job. It’s how I keep the machine oiled and working smoothly. It my Te “professionalism.”

With my friends, if I don’t agree, I’ll often keep my mouth shut, because my Fi has decided to pick its battles. Some things just aren’t worth the effort. I’m never “fake” (my Fi won’t stand for it) but why cause trouble unless it’s over something that I truly care about, that is worth the effort of conflict?

Do I care what people think of me? Yes and no. Yes, in that I want my true self well represented (Fi) and it annoys me when people get that wrong; if their perception of me is incorrect, I’m a bit insulted by that. I also want to do my personal best, so sometimes other people’s opinions of my work can make me “care” because it’s a reflection of “reality” and how my work will be more widely embraced or rejected by the masses. But do I care about what EVERYONE thinks in the deepest part of my being? Nope. That’s because my self-criticizing Fi is screaming too loud, it drowns most other voices out.

As for altering behavior to fit in with a group: unless they’re about to violate some deeply held principle, or they disgust you, why wouldn’t you moderate or tone what you talk about / your actions / etc to your friends? That’s just being sociable and respecting the other people. (I know damn well what I should and should not discuss with certain people to avoid making them uncomfortable; and I respect them enough most of the time to shift my conversation to what they like. I’m just being nice, because I value being nice.)

To determine Fe vs. Te, decide which one you ‘internalize’ deeply, and which one you can use outwardly with relative ease. :)

kittyskeleton  asked:

I've been writing a story for a really long time, and the main antagonist in it (who happens to be one of exactly two white characters in the story) made herself into a shapeshifter through magic. So, I was researching shapeshifter myths and came across a Navajo legend called a skinwalker and the description comes disturbingly close to what I had in mind for the magic she performs. Is this cultural appropriation, and if so, is there anything specific I could change about it to make it better?

Navajo Skinwalker, Similar Concept and Avoiding Appropriation 

You’re dealing with a case of convergent evolution where the thing you so happened to evolve with is a marginalized religion. It’s not automatically cultural appropriation (which involves conscious theft) but it is something to be cautious about.

I can’t actually make this call— you’d have to ask the Navajo themselves what they think. It is possible for skinwalker legends to be done well (see Teen Wolf; they actually got Navajo feedback on their skinwalker arc and got it accurate), but in this situation you have to ask them what they believe.

Hello! I'm stopping by to say that your voice acting is really good! You really put the emotions into the sentences you do and really make the character have feelings. Keep up the good work! -Good Work Anon

Aw thank you so much! :D Narration is so weird, sometimes I almost feel like I’m overdoing it. Like how do you make “He said” sound interesting? But then I go back and listen to Harry Potter narrated by Jim Dale (or better yet, the Abhorsen series narrated by Tim fucking Curry) and I remember I am very far from being hammy, lol. In my opinion anyway.

I hope you still feel this way after the next few videos that come out XD In the last 3 days I’ve recorded about 5 hours of material. And I think I have about 1-1.5 hours to go. That should get me through this month’s content before I get a proper recording space back, lol. Like seriously, I shit you not:

WE’RE GETTIN BACK ON THIS TRAIN MOTHAFUCKA. I shot the Serif is the name of the handplates short I have completed, and f is Flowers for Dad (I didn’t want to haul my ass out of my closet to start the new file, and it was dark so that that’s the best I could do while typing with my back twisted halfway around and my arm sticking out my closet door). And there’s one more 3k word short I will finish tonight.

There's been a lot of issues at the store I work at for the past six months or so. I've been debating giving my notice for so long, but I love the people I work with and I love what I do. I finally was forced to get a new job to avoid ending up on the street and now I'm only working retail part time. It's so freeing to be able to get a shift covered or take some time away from retail without being scared that my next paycheck won't go far enough. It gets to be my fun job again.

anonymous asked:

I've been a long time Melissa fan but I'm so disappointed in her. How do you do it? This is an ask for help :/ It's been confirmed she's dating Chris Wood, rumors about them were around since December, and now they are already living together. She barely filed the divorce, how could have she replaced poor Blake so fast? Everything seems to point to cheating, Chris's ex gf is also mad apparently. Please help.

Okay, I’ve known about Melissa and Chris for several weeks and I’ve avoided discussing it until we got the kind of clear cut confirmation like we got today for this exact reason- that people would hate on her. This also means I’ve had several weeks to rehearse my response in my head!

I wholeheartedly believe that if we are fans of Melissa, we have to accept this and be happy for her. Firstly because I have always maintained that it is a fan’s duty to accept and respect their idol’s relationship if it appears to be happy and secondly, because…

this is literally history repeating itself. 

Anon. If you were a jennoist fan, it is hypocritical of you to shame Melissa for this. We don’t have any proof whatsoever that she cheated. What I would agree is very likely, is that Melissa probably ultimately ended a presumably already unhappy relationship with Blake in order to pursue one with Chris. Sound familiar? Yep, just like she ended a presumably already unhappy relationship with Nick in order to pursue one with Blake around four years ago.

If you supported her getting with Blake, you should support her getting with Chris. No-one’s saying you have to ship them, but be supportive of a relationship if it is making her happy. If you are determined to vilify her for this, then take a step back and vilify both Melissa and Blake for ending long term relationships for each other in the first place, because it is exactly the same thing now. You ask me how I do it, how I accept it? It’s as simple as that.

I was only a little put off by the fanservice with Velvet in the game and it didn't ruin her character for me, but I don't deny that the trend it's a part of, is a big problem in media. My love for ToB has dropped a lot because it has a FANDOM that thinks it's a flawless game despite this, will give lip service to hating Velvet's outfit but call someone sexist if the fanservice lowers their opinion of the game (or if they... like a male Tales character more than her... like, are you kidding me?)

Hiding this response to anon behind a cut.  More unpopular opinions abound, because I actually do have a few, I just don’t share them very often to avoid shitting on other people’s fun.  And if you’re on mobile and you can’t avoid seeing it, I’m sorry, and you are always free to stop following me if you just can’t stand my opinion of this game.

Xerooooo! Give me UmiMaki: 30, 46 and 49 please

A/N: An early birthday present to @lovelivellama. This was much harder than I expected it to be. I hope you enjoy it.

UmiMaki

“It’s not what it looks like…”

“Hey, have you seen the…? Oh.”

“Well, this is awkward…”


Maki cursed herself for ever asking for help. The plan completely backfired once she opened her mouth, let alone to troublesome people.

“You should give up trying to make her dinner. She’ll only have a heart attack if you end up burning down the house.”

Maki scowled at Nico’s words when she had visited them for help. Although she wanted to deny it, Nico was right. Maki was useless when it came to cooking, let alone do anything in the kitchen besides making coffee, getting food out the fridge, and using the microwave to heat the cold food.

But right now, Maki would rather be homeless than do what she was going to do. In her hands was a bag; and in that bag, was a sexy cop outfit and a pair of handcuffs.

“I can’t believe Kotori was able to convince me to buy these…”

It was do or die. Tonight, is Maki’s fourth wedding anniversary with Umi and she wanted to change things up with her lover. So, to get some ideas to surprise the other, Maki went to their friends for help. Low and behold, this was what she ended up with.

Maki began to strip out of her clothes. Her fingers slid across her fair skin and began to imagine activities that were to come once Umi returns from work. Before things got hotter, Maki snapped herself out of it and decided to take a bath to freshen herself up first. After her bath, Maki exhaled deeply to convey her mixed feelings about cosplaying. She was having an internal debate on whether this was the right decision or not.

“Maybe we should just do what we usually do.” She was beginning to have second thoughts.

“Umi-chan can be easily swayed by other women if you don’t mark her as your own Maki-chan.”

It irked her that Nozomi said that to tease her, but the red-head didn’t believe Umi would ever be unfaithful to her, especially if it pertained to “making love” with another. After all, this was Umi she was talking about. It was hard to not get her lover to say what they were doing is “shameless”.

Shaking the thoughts out of her head, Maki finally decided to put on the costume. It didn’t feel any different from the outfits they once wore when they were school idols, but nonetheless was not any less embarrassing. The leather of the shorts and blazer hugged her curves tightly. Maki smiled to herself while imagining the face Umi would make once she walks into their bedroom. Unconsciously, the red-head began making various sexy poses in front of the large mirror. Umi may say that she’s being shameless, but the red-head knew better because her wife is a closet pervert. Maki was so engrossed in her own little world that she hadn’t realized that someone had entered their house.

“Who would have thought it would rain so hard so suddenly.” Umi entered the house drenched from the storm followed by a blonde in the same state.  

“I know. Sorry about this Umi, even though today was supposed to be your anniversary with Maki.” Eli apologized for the intrusion.

“It’s fine. It’s not your fault that the trains stopped working because of the rain and you have no way home.” The blue haired woman took off her shoes and wet blazer. “I’ll go try to find us some towels and see where Maki is.”

Umi leaves Eli and goes searching for clean, dry towels. The blonde began stripping, taking it upon herself to go to the bathroom to clean herself and find some of her spare clothes she leaves at their house. However, before she could even make it there, she was stopped by Maki.

“Y-you’re under arrest for s-stealing my heart! Prepare to be punished for it!” The red-head had her eyes tightly shut and a nice red hue painted across her face.

“Well, this is awkward…” Eli was baffled at the bold statement that was clearly not meant for her.

“Ueeh?!” Maki’s face lit up red like a tomato, brighter than a Christmas light.

“Maki?” Upon hearing her voice, Umi returned to where the other two were. “Have you seen the…?”

Words fell into silence when she saw her wife cosplaying as a cop, on top of Eli, who was half naked on the ground.

“Umi! Before you jump to any conclusions, hear me out first!” Eli feared for her life and wished she could tell Nozomi that she loved her one more time before her lifeless body is sent to her wife.

“It’s not what it looks like…” Maki spoke softly, a blush still clearly present on her face.

The red-head could not look at her lover in the face. She was too embarrassed and wanted the earth to open and swallow her so she could disappear. That was, until she was picked up by Umi.

“Umi?” Eli gave the couple a puzzled look.

“Make sure to lock the door with the spare key under the plant pot after Nozomi picks you up.” Umi looked over her shoulder with a cold smile as a warning to the other. “And make sure to keep your mouth shut about what happened along with erasing what you saw from your mind.”

“Y-yes ma’m!” Eli felt a cold rush crawl up her spine which did not come from her cold, wet clothes.

“U-Umi…?” Maki spoke weakly.

“You’re shameless…” Amber eyes averted followed by a blush on Umi’s cheeks.

“I-it’s not like I did this for you or anything…”

“Oh? So, it was for Eli?” Umi raised an eyebrow at her wife.

“W-who knows?” Maki looked away to avoid her gaze.

Closing the door, Umi put Maki on the bed and got on top of the other. In her most seductive tone, she leaned in close to Maki’s ear and whispered. “Should I punish you then Officer?”

That night, the two ending up having one of the best out of many.

plot bunnies ↠ Alys Jones/Zara Mills, Elysium

Alys Jones has been running away from one thing or another for the majority of her life. Avoiding people from her fractured past has always been easier than facing it, which is one of the reasons her name is plastered on every wanted poster in the Enchanted Forest. But when a rather familiar stranger offers Alys a strange deal, she can’t refuse it.

Because for as long as she can remember, she has had a hole in her heart, and suddenly, she sees a way out - the boy she’s she’s always tried to run from, and the place she swore she’d never return to.

Ever since Zara quite literally washed up in Storybrooke, her adoptive brother Henry has had someone to talk to about his book of stories, the one he believes to be real. Zara’s always been afraid to tell him what she really thinks - that fairytales are just made up stories. But when Emma Swan rolls into town, Zara begins to doubt everything she knows - or thinks she knows - about her sleepy town.

It was only an innocent joke. Every morning, without fail, Pietro would burst into Wanda’s room to push her out of bed. Then he would immediately to avoid the wrath of his undeniably powerful sister. That Sunday morning was no exception, and when Pietro woke up at his usual early time, he took a shower, grabbed a bite to eat, and stepped into the elevator that would take him to Wanda’s room.

The Bus To Daegu (Yoongi x Reader)

Ahh it’s done?? idk I rushed this a lot because as with the rest of my life I procrastinated. I had trouble coming up with ideas and…yeah. But, here is a fic for Yoongi’s birthday and my submission for the contest @sugaswagsociety is putting on ^.^ (Will also be posted on my AO3, AFF, and Quotev accounts)


Yoongi x Reader - Fluff (?)

Words - 4,339

Based on this post and Yoongi’s response to his ideal situation for meeting.

Happy Suga Day ♥♥♥


The bus before you idles noisily as the long line of soon-to-be passengers begin to file inside. The exhaust pouring out of the tailpipe mingles with the sharp scent of winter that still clings to the unusually chilly March air and invades your nose until all you can smell is the heavy scent of diesel.

You have just arrived in South Korea after the longest flight of your life and now you are about to board a smelly bus for another four hours before you will finally reach your cousin’s house in Daegu.

Your cousin just moved to South Korea eight months ago, and when she invited you to spend your spring break with her you were hesitant to agree. You have never been out of the country before, but you were close to your cousin prior to her sudden move and she was eventually able to convince you to spend two weeks with her.

So here you are in a foreign country with a still very lacking grasp on the language, about to board a bus full of complete strangers for four hours. Your mother had called you crazy for going by yourself, and as you search the people around you in hopes of finding a friendly face you start to agree with her. This is by far the craziest spur of the moment decision you have made in your entire life and you are starting to doubt yourself, but it is too late to back out now.
