You know what else I’d love to randomly see? Ladybug and Chat Noir heading into an akuma battle during an ongoing argument. The whole time they’re working together they’re just bickering about something stupid and completely ignoring the poor akuma victim’s rage.

Chat Noir: *dodging attacks* And I’m saying we SHOULD be allowed to give each other Christmas presents. Honestly buginette, I love you, but do you really think we’re going to figure each other’s identities out by some cheap gift?
Ladybug: Okay, first of all, you are NOT getting me a cheap gift, because I wouldn’t get YOU a cheap gift. *launches Chat at the victim to get their possessed item* Second of all we should be ruling out even the smallest thing that could give each other away!
Chat Noir: *is knocked away by the akuma victim* So you’re saying that if I gave you a nondescript diamond necklace you’d be able to figure out who I am?
Ladybug: HOW is a diamond necklace nondescript, Chat Noir?? How many people can afford a diamond necklace???
Chat Noir: More people than you think, Ladybug!
Ladybug and Chat Noir: SHUT UP!
Akuma Victim: *cowers*
Ladybug: *snatches the item herself and breaks it over her knee* And another thing—!
Chat Noir: *throws arms in the air as she purifies the butterfly*
Hawk Moth: …wtf just happened?

Adrinette Bonus Round 

Adrien: Hey Marinette, can I ask you something?
Marinette: Sure.
Adrien: Would you call a diamond necklace nondescript?
Marinette: *scowls* NO, I WOULDN’T. *stomps off*
Adrien: What the heck is her problem?? *annoyed*

Awesome Megafauna Skulls!

My last weird and awesome skull post was really popular, so I decided to do one about something else I’m excessively interested in: Megafauna! This isn’t at all a comprehensive list of the coolest ones, not by a long shot, so you should definitely look up some of the BBC docs on Youtube or google ones from your continent!

The cave bear! (N. America)

‘Hell Pigs’ (N. America) Actually entelodonts, unrelated to pigs at all and more closely tied to hippos and cetaceans! Dat sagittal crest amirite

The Stag Moose  @allosauroid brought to my attention that this is the skull of the Irish elk, Megaloceros, not a stag moose! (Eurasia) Which stood 6 foot at the shoulder/withers

Platybelodon (widespread) Google artist renditions of these guys, you won’t be disappointed

Barbourofelis! (N. America) Like a smaller smilodon, with much cooler teeth. Look at those incisors!

Megatherium (S. America) Primitive sloths the size of elephants!

Titanus Walleri (N. America) Other continents had equally large if not larger ‘terror birds’

Paraceratherium (Eurasia) One of the largest terrestrial mammals we’ve ever discovered. It was actually a species of hornless rhino! Google artist recs of these guys, too

Diprotodon (Australia) The largest known marsupial, which was the size of a hippopotamus and stood 6 feet tall

I saved Glyptodon (S. America) for last, because these things have some of the weirdest skulls I’ve ever seen. They were technically armadillos, but reached the size of a Volkswagen Beetle!

I really do believe that at least part of the problem of people distrusting science has to do with how we as scientists portray ourselves.

We have actively created a system where we derive authority from being seen as better/smarter/more competent than everyone else and then when people ask why they should trust us we respond with a very condescending version of ‘because SCIENCE IS FACT’ or something along those lines.

Like, consider how that would feel from the outside? Here are a small group of people who you have never met/interacted with who sequester themselves in impenetrable ~elite institutions that you can’t access and don’t feel party to who then tell you that what they say is fact because they’re smarter and better educated than you. And if you ever try to question them (no matter how reasonable your objections may be/seem to you) they condescendingly pat you on the head and say something like ‘don’t worry we know better. you can’t possibly understand what we do.’

Why the hell would you trust them? 

No one likes being told that they’re not smart enough to understand something, and no one likes feeling excluded from something they’ve essentially been asked to accept sight unseen. 

I don’t really have a solution to this, except some vague notion about working harder to portray scientists as people working a job, rather than geniuses who are above it all. 

And like trying harder to understand where people are coming from when they question science. And remembering that being better educated than most doesn’t make us smarter than most. It just makes us better trained in certain types of thinking.

I just think we need to keep in mind what we are asking of people. Which is to put a whole hell of a lot of faith in us.

I’m not sorry that my disability annoys you

I had a discussion with Someone the other day about accessibility at amusement parks. He complained about how disabled people didn’t have to wait in line or could get two rides in a row. He said going to an amusement park wasn’t something you had to do, so if you weren’t able to follow the rules that everyone else does, you should just stay home.

Having a disabled sister and being disabled myself, I really appreciate how places such as Disney World makes the parks accessible for both physically and mentally disabled people. My sister is not able to wait 30 minutes to get in an ride. She has attention deficit disorder and autism which makes waiting in line with lots of other people difficult. There’s only a few rides she’s able to try, and she really enjoys it.

When you are disabled it could be a huge challenge to wait in line. Being in such a crowded space for a long time can cause panic and distress. Getting in and out of a ride can take a lot of time if you are in a wheelchair or similar.

This kind of ableism is hurtful and even harmful and people with disabilities. 

And no I will not stop doing things I enjoy because my disability annoys you. I didn’t choose to be disabled but ignorance is a choice.

anagniou  asked:

I hope this doesn't sound too weird but, I wanted you to give me some advice. I'm almost 17 which means that in less than a year and a half, school is over. I'm not sure yet but I either want to be an illustrator or an animator. I just started taking art classes to. So far I was self-taught. Problem is, I see you, beinh just a bit older than, and my art is nowhere NEAR your level. Should I drop it and follow something else in life? Or keep trying to improve even if it's too late?

I hope you don’t mind me answering this publicly

I’ve been told this advice by someone I really look up to and I strongly believe it’s true: you wanna do/achieve something - you gotta give it your best, dedicate yourself to the case, entirely.

1,5 years is a lot of time, believe me, you can still do whatever you wanna do but you gotta get specific; if there’s something else you’re good at/ enjoy then you can presume that other path - there’s nothing wrong with art being just a hobby. However, if you want art to become your career then get professional about it.

Right now you have a purpose: to get into college. So what do you do now? You improve your skills to get into college. You wanna be able to create a strong portfolio being the proof of your abilities. You can always check what the uni expects of you/your portfolio.

You know how art takes time and practice to look ok? You gotta do just that but DONT BE STUPID ABOUT IT. Don’t just draw cute characters or whatever!! Don’t just draw stuff you like!! Yeah it is pleasant but it does nothing to improve your skills. You gotta do shit ton of drawings that you don’t like and normally you’d never make them. Draw from real life, draw people, objects around you, stuff in perspective, practice colour theory. BEING SELF THOUGHT IS THE KEY. NO ART CLASS WILL GIVE YOU THE SAME KNOWLEDGE. Also, stuff comes much easier if you’re actually i n v e s t e d. Classes won’t guarantee any success, in the slightest.

If you don’t get into college on the first try you can always try again, it’s not like your chances will be gone forever once and for all the moment you get rejected. If you REALLY wanna do it then you won’t give up, simple as that. You will find that back door. Ps. Theoretically in the art industry “papers/degrees” aren’t as important - what counts for every employer is your portfolio. So: work on your skill.

I don’t wanna sound too dreamy and poetic here but either you follow your dreams/goals or on one sunny day you’ll wake up, look in a mirror and say “wow I regret not doing what I enjoyed, I wasted my chance”

You know when it is too late to start with something? When you adapt a toxic mentality and convince yourself that it really is

Tl;dr you’re only 16, you wanna do art then just do it

So thinking about @kirkwallgirl and @allenvooreef‘s fire-dancing Zevran (which is now canon as far as I’m concerned) makes me think again about how much I love all the in-between spaces and little moments, all the bits that aren’t really important to the narrative, and all the wonderful things that are lost to those moments (DA2 is especially good about sketching in those moments, though, it should be said).  

I love to think about everyone sitting around the fire of an evening, feeling a bit blistered and overwhelmed and burned out and grey, really, and then one companion or another shrugs mentally and decides to do some morale-building, and suddenly everyone discovers that their companion is exceptional at something surprising and wonderful and maybe silly.

This is the moment where Dorian shows off some simple bit of illusionary performance magic that might be nothing special in the north but is utterly new to everyone else.

Where Leliana sings a song Alistair sang in Chantry school, and everyone discovers that he has an untrained but beautiful baritone.

Where Varric tells a story to jolly everyone up a bit, and the Inquisitor realizes for the first time that he’s faced dragons multiple times before; that besides being a pulp author and ‘unwelcome tagalong’, he’s also surprisingly quietly a total badass.

Where Solas finds the time to finish that bit of bone he’s been scraping away at, and it turns out to be a flute, on which he plays them a strange melody that somehow makes them all feel as though they’ve lost something amorphous but terribly important.  It’s from his youth, he says.

When Cassandra accidentally reveals that actually, she can ballroom dance very adequately–it was required learning–and no, she will not be demonstrating.

When Isabela gets bored and pulls no fewer than four matching throwing knives out of who knows where to adeptly demonstrate a whole series of juggling patterns

I don’t know–I like the big moments to have little moments, the heroism to be balanced with moments of frivolity, the companions to have skills you’d never expect.  Maybe Dorian doesn’t do magic after all, who knows.  Maybe he turns out to be a master of flicking your cheek just so to make the perfect water drop noise.

Mr. Barnes Will See You Now (1)

Prompt: 50 Shades of Barnes. VERY LOOSELY BASED!!!

Note: I do not own any of the characters or story line.

A/N: I don’t care if this has been done, I am doing it for me. I was watching 50 shades the other day and thought about how maybe Bucky having lost all his control because of Hydra would ever turn into something like Christian Grey. So… TADA! I am making an A/U with him as Grey. As I said… it is VERY loosely based!

The funny thing is the Girl Meets World writers could have easily had Riley informed about Lucas’ whereabouts AND kept the idea that no one likes Secret Santa. 

*Everyone complains about Secret Santa*

Riley: Well, I spoke to Lucas.  Even though he’s in Texas, he still wants to participate.

Maya: Of course, Huckleberry wants to be the perfect boyfriend.

This way Lucas appears considerate enough to tell Riley about his plans and encouraging of her plans. It still calls into question if he really likes Secret Santa or is just doing so for Riley. I’m an amateur, and it took me all of a minute to come up with that. So if professional writers don’t want Riley knowing about Lucas’ whereabouts while everyone else does, it is because they want to convey that something is not right in the way Riley & Lucas communicate. Big red flag for the couple who supposedly got together so they could have important talks. They can’t even have the simple talk any decent boyfriend should have with his girlfriend when it comes to where he is spending the holidays. Meanwhile everyone else in this episode is having good communication. The writers are making it really obvious about where Riley & Lucas are lacking, and it’s the one thing they claim to be so good at: talking with each other.

  • who can blame her, really.
  • symmetra hums against her throat, hands stroking at her hips. ‘you really should.’
  • ‘i should,’ sombra agrees, and then symmetra bites at her earlobe and she lets out a groan.
  • ‘but you could also do something else.’
  • ‘i could do that too.’
  • ‘yes.’
  • ‘i think that’d be good too.’
  • ‘i’m glad we agree.’
  • and then symmetra flips her around and kisses her properly and-
  • whoops she might have just ruined some vital gear but who the hell cares anyway wow
  • when sombra’s slightly distracted with ripping satya’s clothes off, symmetra slips a hand to her gun, and taps in a piece of code, smirking deviously
  • fast forward past the smut to the next infiltration
  • sombra points her gun out at the target, grinning.
  • ‘gotcha.’
  • she fires.
  • nothing happens.
  • she fires again.
  • nada.
  • one more time-
  • nope.
  • what the- fuck who would do this no one has access to my gun not even talon hq why would anyone ever do this but who could have nobody really knows how to code on overwatch or talon- except for symmetra.
  • symmetra.
  • goddamn her.
  • she hacks reaper’s gun stash really quickly and yanks one out of nowhere, slamming the trigger. the target’s down.
  • thank god it worked
  • reyes sniggers at her as he passes by and she rolls her eyes at him. just because the gun doesn’t go with her colour scheme doesn’t mean she didn’t look badass.
  • now sombra has some words for her girlfriend.
  • she strides angrily into symmetra’s lab.
  • satya looks at her, smiles innocently, and turns back to her work.
  • ‘what the fuck. you did not just make my gun malfunction.’
  • ‘it didn’t malfunction.’ symmetra says, still smiling. ‘i think everyone enjoyed your little display.’
  • ‘wha-’
  • symmetra points to the sky.
  • sombra rushes to the window, where there are sixteen letters, in neon purple hard light constructs, displayed brilliantly across the sky.
  • ‘satya. what is this.’
  • ‘i liked it. it was very romantic.’
  • ‘reyes saw this. oh god. that’s why he was laughing. i’m never going to hear the end of this.’
  • ‘well, if it makes you feel better-’ and satya reaches down, plucks the code out of the gun- ‘it put me in quite a mood.’
  • and god, sombra’s whipped. she sighs, kisses her girlfriend lightly.
  • ‘fine. but you better not hack my stuff again.’
  • satya just smirks.
  • ‘no promises.’

I didn’t go potty before bed last night and woke up having to pee a little, so thought it’d be fun to see how long I could last. I had a cup of coffee and a glass of water and I started squirming about an hour ago…am trying to distract myself but I really gotta go…should I stay in or do a challenge and go out to the store or something and try to hold? Coffee makes my bladder unpredictable, I feel like I could totally lose it at any minute or I could hold for another 30 - although I would probably leak before I got back! Pressing on my bladder is such torture but also makes me so horny…..so I’m having some fun doing that too ;) anyone else doing a hold? send me pics  ;)

i don’t actually really see anything more or less complex happening in yuuri’s head at the end than this train of thought…..

victor looked invested in everyone else’s skating/serious while he watched on -> victor probably misses and longs for the competition?? -> i should ‘return him to the skating world’ like he seems to want deep down -> this was always going to happen eventually so i’m going to say something before i change my mind even if it hurts

which was basically what he intended to do all along? he just saw evidence that supported his idea that victor wanted to go back to skating, so it’s really not that shocking that he would actually go through with saying something along these lines, i’m glad that its happening now so the resolution doesn’t feel rushed. but i’m almost positive victor is gonna either a) get upset w yuuri for not recognizing he clearly just wants to be together and he sacrificed everything to do so or b) will think long and hard about what yuuri is saying, as usual, and consider what he truly wants before realizing it’s (OBVIOUSLY) to be with yuuri. either way they’re definitely not splitting up or whatever, we’re just so used to taking the bait with these cliffhangers and previews that it’s natural to worry. but really i wouldn’t. kubo has said it will end happy and we just need to have faith !!! 

clam down everyone things are gonna be fine i’m sure of it
