Up-Not-North

anonymous asked:

Macky, you are killing me!! Who are Nami's parents??

Sorry for killing you! :D 

Nami’s mother, Sessi, was an adventurous marine biologist from the Southern Water Tribe. She wasn’t a waterbender, but she loved the sea and was a skilled sailor who independently tracked and catalogued the migration patterns of thousands of Dolphin-Whales and Koala Otters. She was commissioned by the Northern Water Tribe to evaluate the environmental impact of oil rigs off the coast of the North Pole. During her field work, she met Tomkin, a non-bender laborer on one of the oil rigs. (She actually saved him from drowning when he accidentally fell into the icy waters.) He took her to dinner to thank her, and they hit it off~


They married, had Nami, and settled down in the Northern Water Tribe. Sessi wasn’t exactly the domestic type, though. As much as she loved her daughter and husband, she couldn’t stand being cooped up in the North Pole, so she resumed her research and went on numerous month-long expeditions across the ocean. One day, she didn’t come back. It’s unclear what happened, but authorities guessed she had crashed into an iceberg. Her father was of course devastated. Nami was only 6 years old when it happened.

*** I know the dead mom trope is overdone, but apart from Genji, everyone else in Team Avatar had a relatively normal childhood. I chose this for specific characterization, plot stuff, etc. Also apparently around 8% of households in the U.S. are single-father homes, so it isn’t as uncommon as some people think ***

I’m up north in Manistee, MI :)

All that sand that you see in the beginning and the end of the video is because of a giant avalanche. And those giant concrete boxes in the water are old septic tanks :(

Because these houses overlook Lake Michigan they need to be literally moved back every 50 - 75 years. Apparently they didn’t remove the old septic tank and that caused the bluff and dunes to become unstable and they collapsed.. Thankfully my grandpa’s side is still okay and is healthy.

ANIME NORTH!! table A09

🌸Happy Spring Equinox!!🌸

Some things to do to celebrate: 

🌼 Plant something new

🌸 Care for your existing plants (like trimming and adding fertilizer, or lending energy for growth, or doing a spell for them etc.) 

🌼 Divination questions about who you’re becoming, where you’re going, how you’ve grown, how much more growing you still have to do

🌸 If you have pets, this is a good time to get them something, like a new squeaky ball or a nice catnip mouse to play with

🌼 Meditating in nature (If you’re like me and live up north and there’s still a foot of snow outside you can meditate indoors. Try using nature sounds in the background, they have loads on youtube) 

So far 2017!phan has brought us:

✨ Dan and Phil both getting “a kiss from a dog” at midnight on New Year’s Eve.

✨ Phil making a twitter Moments that featured multiple unnecessary pics of Dan.

✨ Dan and Phil being the most amazing grandparents to Dab as he ages into a toddler.

✨ Finding out that Phil bought Dan a £60 oil scented candle.

✨ “Phil is my bestest buddy.”

✨ All of Tumblr arguing about who will propose to the other.

✨ “2017 is going to be more chill. We’re just going to do more life things…and find a better way to live so we have more storage.”

✨ A rumor about Phil having a “secret wife and child”; both Dan and Phil laughing at the idea of Phil being with anyone other than Dan.

✨ Phil predicting his future and basically predicting domestic bliss.

✨ Dan going with Phil to spend Phil’s birthday up north with the Lester’s.

✨ “The light and warmth you bring to our lives is as everlasting as the sun” - Dan Howell.

✨ An entire video of Dan and Phil calling each other “Daddy” and “Baby”.

And it isn’t even February.

During Jack and Bitty’s 2nd summer together...

So Jack is in Georgia for a couple of days, right, and he comes back from a morning run to find both Bittle parents in the kitchen eating breakfast (Bitty slowly dragging is ass out of bed, he can hear the bathroom upstairs). 

Suzanne greets him with a smile, Coach with a nod, Jack sits down to eat. Usually, there’s a fair amount of chatter- even without Bitty- because Jack is comfortable with both parents, but now they’re eating in silence. Throwing furtive glances at Jack. At each other. At Jack again.

Jack’s stars feeling the tingle in his fingers that announces his anxiety. He counts the seconds until Bitty leaves the bathroom- no, that was the sound of the shower. Alright then.

Suzanne places her mug back on the table.

- Jack, sweetheart, we need to talk to you.

Coach takes a sip of coffee and sits back straight.

- …Alright? says Jack.

- We’ve seen the way you look at Junior, says Coach in a matter-of-fact voice.

I hate when she puts me on the spot like this when the cameras are around. It’s a complete set-up because she knows how I feel. But let’s talk about how this woman looked me dead in my face and lied to me about having make-up on.
