Ring-finger

I asked Jensen to wear my “Dean ring” in my photo, so he took my ring and asked what finger he was supposed to wear it on. After I told him his right ring finger he attempted multiple times to put the ring on but it kept getting stuck on his knuckle so he just kept trying and looked at me and laughed. He apologized (which was unnecessary) and asked if his pinky would do. I of course was just so happy to be standing in front of him I just went along with it and took the photo. I will forever heart this man!

Kara stood across the bullpen, staring past the space and into the elegant room that had so often been her sanctuary. The Monday morning bustle went unnoticed by the young superhero. She was too focused on the porcelain cheeks and wavy, blond hair of the woman sitting on one of the sofas in the prominent office.


As interns and reporters rushed around to catch up after the weekend, Cat was as poised as ever. Kara had always admired Cat’s calm and confident demeanor. It had soothed her on many stressful occasions.


Twirling an unfamiliar ring on her finger, Kara silently ran through her tenth mental draft of how she would tell Cat. She was distracted by how strange the ring felt. Truth be told, Kara wasn’t even sure why she was wearing it.

HUNK

-The two of you got to the tattoo spot and Hunk saw this and wanted to get it because of how cute this is.

PIDGE

-Ok, but Pidge saw this and thought it was perfect considering she’s literally met aliens and she met a race of Aliens who’s hair had the color of the tattoo.

KEITH

(Just put K and the first letter of your name

-Keith, thought thought the idea of getting a tattoo is kind of weird. But, he thought it would also be nice. So Keith and his s/o got something simple yet cute.

SHIRO(Let’s say you’re married or engaged)

-Right before the Kerberos mission, Shiro wanted something to remember his s/o while gone. And then they walked by a tattoo shop and got matching tattoos on their ring fingers.

LANCE

-He really wanted to try and do something special. And he knew as generic as something like that is, he loved the sentiment.

<p>To smoke or drink.. that is the question of the night. It&rsquo;s his birthday.. but it&rsquo;s also the 2yr anniversary of me getting this tattoo in his hand writing on my ring finger. Most days I forget it&rsquo;s there. Then others I remember I&rsquo;ll never be able to forget him even if I wanted to. I still don&rsquo;t. Necessarily regret it because I will forever and always love the man I thought he was. Just not the man he turned out to be. </p>

<p>So tell me people of Tumblr! Shall I smoke a bowl or have a couple shots?

Imagine being a Kingsman agent and being in a relationship with Harry.

honestly so psyched for kingsman 2 i might cry
warnings: some guy getting shot, protective!harry (hold on to your hormones)

Harry’s hand was warm around yours as he thumbed the ring on your finger without realising what he was doing, as if second nature.

You were on a mission with Harry, posing as spouses to a court hearing. It was meant to be a simple undercover intelligence mission. No blood, no death, just your glasses recording everything and sending it back to Merlin. Of course, that wasn’t the case.

“Archimedes,” the Scottish voice rang through your earpiece. Harry beside you gave your hand a squeeze to show he could hear too. “Take a glance to your right, there’s a woman with a long beige coat a few seats away. Don’t look directly at her, just get your glasses a view.”

You reached down to tie your shoe, but purposely elbowed the person to your right, ‘accidentally’. You turned to them with an apologetic smile, to which they shook their head to say it wasn’t a problem.

During this, you were facing the woman with the red scarf without looking at her. “Nicely done, Archimedes,” said Merlin.

You were in fact known for your subtlety. You were often the go-to agent for undercover missions, but when that wasn’t the case you kept Merlin company with your creativity. They’re skills that go hand in hand, really.

Your 'husband’ raised your hand to his lips and pressed a gentlemanly kiss to the back of it. He was calm today, and the warmth in his eyes as he smiled at you calmed you too.

Until his eyes focused on something behind you and his face dropped.
Within seconds he’d swiftly pushed you to the ground and whipped out his umbrella, sending a stunning dart right into the woman’s neck, but not before she’d managed to pull out an obnoxiously large gun and shot the judge square in the face.

There was an uproar, but the actual event was over before it started.

Harry pulled you up from the floor and frowned at where the judge sat, a big red splodge on the wall behind him. “Don’t suppose you could’ve bothered trying to save his life, Archimedes?”

A Scottish voice rung through your ears, “That would have been useful.”

I saw Harry has seven rings on his fingers in total and my headcannon is that Louis has given him one every year and Harry is leaving the ring finger on his left hand for last

So I found something interesting by chance...

These two images are part of an exhibit that was on display, I believe. Well, just out of a whim (and c’mon I love these pics), I took another look at them and

Dick Grayson: Martial Arts

So I’m finally getting around to writing this. The first question every single one of you should be asking is what makes me– a random person on the internet– qualified to talk about a fictional character’s expert martial arts abilities. Well, I am

>> A black belt in Northern Eagle Claw Kung Fu
>> A brown belt (2nd kyu /nikyu) in Aikido

I’ve also taken some Southern Shaolin Kung Fu, Taekwondo, and Karate. 

The main styles I’m qualified to talk about are Eagle Claw Kung Fu and Aikido, which mainly comes from my years of practice. I’m not an instructor in any of these disciplines, and I’m only writing this for fun. This post might be helpful to people who role play Dick Grayson or to just develop headcanons in general. Hey, you might just be straight up interested in how this guy fights.

The fact is, comic books aren’t the best portrayal of how martial artists fight. Comic books are very flashy. They like splash pages, dramatic kicks and punches, and they like to have superheroes jump to the ground with cement-shattering landings that would devastate their knee joints. The irony here is that Dick’s core martial art style is canonically Aikido, and Aikido has a grand total of zero kicks. The only punches that this style uses are your standard initial strikes in order to practice the forms. Otherwise, this style is purely defensive. The philosophy of Aikido is basically to disarm your opponent with as little damage to them as possible. In Kung Fu, I was taught how to break people’s arms, rip out the trachea, and damage the ear drums (yay, fun), but in Aikido the idea is that you don’t want to physically harm your opponent more than necessary. Dick knows various martial art styles, so clearly he knows how to execute lethal and flawless kicks and punches too, but for now, let’s focus on Aikido since it’s his core style.

This is actually an awesome style for Dick for many reasons. Aikido is a martial art focused on using your opponent’s energy against them, and it’s a purely defensive style (there are no offensive maneuvers in this style besides your standard initial strike to practice movements). Dick started crime fighting when he was a kid. He couldn’t rely on physical strength to survive, and after growing up to be an adult, he’s still only about 175 pounds which means a majority of the big hitters in DCU can easily physically overpower him. I’m 115 pounds, and I can tell you that I drop guys who are twice my size all the time in Aikido. It doesn’t take much physical effort because this style relies on innate human weaknesses. The idea of Aikido is to learn a system of defensive maneuvers that can be applied to any attack that comes your way.

Someone punching you? No problem. They grabbed both your wrists? Please. Shirt collar? Ha, whatever. Grabbed from behind? Come on. Knife stab? Zzz. Samurai sword? – You mean the one that’s now in my hands?

This is a flexible martial art style, and it works without tiring you. When I took Kung fu, I needed a water break after twenty minutes because the workout was so intense. In Aikido I can go two and a half hours straight and not break a sweat. You rarely have to move more than a few feet to complete a technique, and it’s usually to move into your opponent’s blind spot in order to execute a technique that puts them on the floor. Don’t get me wrong, you can practice Aikido fast and hard and tire yourself out with a good workout– but you don’t have to. If you’re wise about your movements, you can save a lot of energy.

If Dick is as much of an expert in Aikido as comics say, then you can’t put your hand near this guy without ending up on your back in 0.2 seconds flat. You’ll be staring at the ceiling wondering what the hell just happened (been there, done that, trust me).

Dick Grayson can put anyone on the floor in a matter of seconds without throwing a single punch or kick. He basically just needs to stand there and bam, they’re down. So by this point you’re probably wondering how this style works as effectively as it does.

It works by blending your energy into your opponent’s and then using it against them. If someone punches Dick, he can side-step their arm, grab their wrist to yank them forward (i.e. off-balance them), and then twist the wrist back so that his opponent has no choice but to follow wherever he guides them– which in this case will be backwards (lifting their elbow over their shoulder to force them to land on their back).

This entire time, Dick barely has to move to execute it other than the initial side-step. It’s a fluid, eloquent and sophisticated style. The movements you do are so small (a simple twist of the wrist) that anyone watching this fight might go, “what the fuck just happened?”

Now, I am exaggerating a bit, but there is a fundamental truth here. The key is that we’re twisting someone’s wrist in a direction that it’s not supposed to go, forcing the human body to either follow the movement or break the joint. 10/10 times the body will involuntarily follow the movement.

For any of you who want a physical example of how this works in order to better understand it, I’ll try to offer a step-by-step example here. (Explaining things over the Internet is hard, I offer no guarantees.)

  1. Hold your right hand in front of your face with the palm facing you.
  2. Take your left hand and hold it behind your right hand.
  3. Wrap the fingers of your left hand around the thumb joint of your right hand (this is the meaty part of your palm below your thumb).
  4. Make sure the thumb of your left hand is pressing between the knuckles of the pinkie and ring finger of your right hand (or at least keep it in that general area, no worries).
  5. Now press the entire thing down and to the side (there should only be one natural direction to go). If you extend your arm down, you’ll feel it even more. You can also bend your arm toward (and over) your shoulder to further understand the type of control someone would have over you in this position.

(If any of you had trouble following that, I don’t blame you. I still can’t figure out online origami instructions.) 

If you managed this successfully, then you have an idea of why you don’t want someone holding your arm like this. If they start walking you in one direction, you’re going to follow them because it’s an unnatural position.

So that’s one basic wrist movement, and there are dozens of others. Like I said, this is a very flexible style. You can punch Dick Grayson and he can respond over a dozen different ways. One might put you on your back, he could straight up throw you, he can flip you, he can put you on your stomach with your arms behind your back in a painful lock, he can spin you in a fast circle and drop you.

We can see Dick and Tim doing something similar in New Teen Titans Vol 2 #60.

Pretty cool, right? When I spar with people, I tell them to grab me as hard as they can so I can practice with a genuine threat. The guy I was last sparring with was taller than me, weighed more, and was stronger. He was gripping both my wrists tightly (and I have tiny ass wrists), and that didn’t stop me from performing this move because Aikido doesn’t rely on physical strength. Once you move a limb a way it’s not supposed to go, it doesn’t really matter how strong you are; you’re under the control of whoever’s controlling that limb. 

So hopefully that helps explain this style a bit more. It’s my favorite martial art so far, and I recommend it to anyone, especially women. 

As for Dick’s other martial art styles, he knows Jeet-Kune-Do (created by Bruce Lee; it’s a direct style of combat considered ideal for street fighting), Capoeira (an acrobatic style that focuses on movement and evasion) and Eskrima (where Dick’s dual wielding sticks obviously come into play). He’s also been said to practice Muay Thai, Judo, Savate, Karate, Sambo, Ninjitsu, Wing Chun and Shaolin Kung Fu.
