LadyD 500 Followers Giveaway!

Thanks everyone who decided they wanted to follow my crazy blog. Because It warms my heart so, I decided to do a giveaway. Something I do that I enjoy is make chapter banners for my fanfiction. So why not make one for five of my followers!?

Rules etc.

  • The giveaway will end on April 15
  • I will figure out that number/name randomizer thingy, or whatever, to draw 5 winners
  • You don’t have to be a writer to win one
  • You do have to be a follower
  • You do have to be a real person with a blog who is part of the Bioware fandom (preferably ME and DA OCs pls), and not a giveaway blog (whatever that is) or a bot
  • I will do up to two people in the image, ie OC and OC, OC and LI something like that - we can discuss if it will be possible
  • Your OC does not have to fall into the strict options we get in CC

So here’s the thing, if you end up being one of the 5 winners, we will have a chat. You will tell me about your OC and what you want for your banner/picture. I make these in photoshop to look like Illustrations. You can send me face claims (If CC never worked for you, you who just don’t have a CC version of your OC) or screenshots of your OC. Does your OC have like massively curly hair? Do they have a special tattoo that’s unique to just them? We can work with that. Abner has a unique tattoo, a septum piercing, and dreaded hair - but she still gets banners ;)

Thats it! That’s the thing! Like and reblog as much as you want to (without being a prick) and good luck!

First of all congrats congrats ily! You deserve ALL the followers Mel! (And all the Minty!) Fic prompt: my friend can’t stop talking about how they want to set me up with their other friend so we start texting each other and they’re hilarious but shy about meeting and ALSO there’s a cute bike delivery guy who brings my mail at work and winks at me whenever i sign for a package (surprise! they're the same person) AU

ILY ILY!!!! Here’s your fic :) 

“His name’s Monty.”

Miller waited.

And waited.

He gave in. “Uh, okay.” He raised an eyebrow. “And?”

Clarke raised an eyebrow in return. “And what? His name’s Monty. Here’s his number.”

It had been a nice day today– his coworkers weren’t being too big of dicks; it was finally dark past six o’clock; and his beer was good, so instead of falling back on his usual surliness, Miller veered into amusement instead. “You know,” he said, “I had been expecting a more effusive recommendation for this guy than this.”

Clarke rolled her eyes. “Well, I’ve tried that with you before with other guys and you always found some stupid thing about them to talk yourself out of texting them,” she said. “So I’m done doing the hard work for you. Talk to them yourself and figure out why you don’t want to text them.”

“Well, that’s no fun,” Miller complained. “Not to mention complicated.”

Clarke leveled him with a stare that reminded him eerily of Raven. “If you don’t text Monty, you’re missing out,” she said bluntly. “All you need to know is that he’s great and I wouldn’t steer you wrong, okay?”

Miller opened his mouth to respond with something snarky, but then shut it. Well, that was true. Clarke could be an overbearing bitch sometimes, but her heart was in the right place, and even if her own dating life was a complete disaster, she could pretty clearly see other people’s.

“Fine,” he grunted. “Give me his number.”


From Nate (8:10PM)

Hey

This is Nate

Clarke’s friend

She gave me your number?


From Monty (8:12PM)

Hey!

Yeah, she told me she was going to

Um

How are you?


From Nate (8:14PM)

Good

Awkward


From Monty (8:15PM)

Ha!

Same

It could be worse, I guess

This could be in PERSON


From Nate (8:16PM)

I’ll be fully honest– when you said that

I cringed


From Monty (8:24PM)

An introvert’s worst nightmare

I get it

This is meeting my social interaction

quota for the evening

So I don’t feel too guilty for sitting in my PJs

And watching Bob’s Burgers on Netflix


From Nate (8:25PM)

Ideal Friday night situation, imo

I love Bob’s Burgers

Did you hear they’re taking that off Netflix?


From Monty (8:26PM)

WHAT? NO!!!!!

What the flying fuck


From Nate (8:27PM)

It’s a fucking tragedy

They’re pulling a bunch of shows

Focusing on original content, I think

Which– if it’s like Sense8, fine

If it’s like Iron Fist, they can go fuck themselves


From Monty (8:28PM)

I have so many opinions

About both those shows

I don’t even know where to start


From Nate (8:29PM)

Lucky for you

I’m also doing nothing

We have all the time in the world

anonymous asked:

My friend introduced me to the german states and the differing culture, but why are they called 'Free States' if they are still part of Germany? What is a free state?

Nowadays the term free state doesn’t really mean anything anymore, it is mostly a relic of the post-WWI era when a number of German states adopted the name of freestate for themselves (including Prussia and Bavaria). This didn’t mean that they were independent, it rather was meant as a sort of synonym for republic, which I guess was in order to emphasize the new status of the country.

I suppose some still consider it a bit of a ‘prestige’ thing maybe :T

#Respect Artists

I just went through my followers and deleted about 80 suspicious blogs
( i suggest that every artist do the same) -
blogs that had no avatar,
blogs that were named with some weird random number letter sequence,
and a few blogs that have been following me for awhile that have not interacted with my work.

I woke up to more blogs adding links to my work and @staff is too busy working on new tumblr dog stickers to do anything about it.
I do not want someone’s first interaction with my work to be images of my work with spammy links all underneath.
Again,
People should not have to the option to add links or strip the original posters credits. It seems like common damn sense to me.

I really appreciate all the support that I receive on tumblr from the real artist who want tumblr to make changes and are willing to take a stand by contacting @staff about this serious problem.

Stay Strong and Be Vocal. You can’t be a great artist and be a pacifist anymore. Let @staff know creators are  unhappy and that there are other options beside this site. Please Tag #RespectArtists


We can create change together.You have to speak up and work for it.
REBLOG or Post Your Own Complaints and use @staff

talesfromcallcenters: I don't always brand my calls, but when I do,

“Thank you for calling [big-ish cable company], my name is lyingassplatypus, how can I help you today?”

“Hi, I just got back from my summer home and my equipment is not working.”

“My apologies for any inconvenience, sir. Your account is popping up now. I’ll access your equipment right away… Here we are.”

*We spend roughly 5 minutes trying to narrow down which piece of equipment is not working - what he’s describing doesn’t match his account, so I verify his name and phone number*

“Sir, I’m sorry. It appears as though your equipment is online. I don’t see any issues here, but if we are to troubleshoot, we need to be sure we’re working with the correct devices.”

“Listen. I’ve been on the phone with you for 30 (actually 5) minutes now, and I don’t have time for this. You have my account pulled up but my equipment isn’t making any sense? I’m looking right at it. It doesn’t have a brand name. It doesn’t have any markings like you say it should. Clearly you don’t know what the fuck you’re talking about, so if you’re too fucking stupid to know your way around your own goddamn equipment, you can get me to someone who knows how to do their job.”

“My apologies, sir. I’m not here to waste your time. The thing is, the type of device you’re describing doesn’t match anything we carry. You’re sure this isn’t from a different company?”

“[Long, frustrated pause] Are you fucking stupid? Get me a supervisor, right now.”

“Of course, sir. Let’s see here, just taking down some notes…seems to be satellite equipment…”

“Is this Direct TV?”

“No sir, this is [competitor]. We’re required to announce our company when picking up the phone call (no we’re not).”

“Oh my god. I’m so sorry.”

“Heeyy, it happens. But, you do have an account with us.”

“Yes, it’s my summer home. The services were running great over there with you guys. So sorry, man, I was really saving that for Direct TV.”

“We’re here for you if you need us, sir: 24/7.”

MotherFUCKER gave me 5’s on the CSAT.

Benedict Cumberbatch and Sophie Hunter welcome baby number two, named for a poet and a king….


Sophie Hunter and Benedict Cumberbatch are reported to have welcomed their second child, a boy
Sophie Hunter and Benedict Cumberbatch are reported to have welcomed their second child, a boy

A spokesman for the couple has not yet responded to a request for confirmation of their happy news.

The new baby will be a younger brother to Christopher Carlton, born in 2015 and known as Kit.

The couple made public the news they were expecting a second child in October, after appearing on the red carpet in Los Angeles to promote the actor’s film, Dr Strange, where fans noticed what appeared to be a baby bump under Ms Hunter’s black ball gown.

A spokesman said then: “Everyone is absolutely thrilled.”

The couple, who married on Valentine’s Day in 2015 and last year applied to extend their north London home.

Cumberbatch has spoken regularly about his pride about becoming a father, saying: “Having a baby – it’s massive.

And on a very unexpected level. Suddenly I understood my parents much more proudly than I ever had before.”

He told the Graham Norton show last year: “I’ve become a father and a husband, and in the right order — just.

“I might go for a (Cumber) batch of boys.”

NUMBER OF FOLLOWERS ON TWITTER : barely fifty. only tends to follow friends and special interest pages that post a lot of one topic.

TYPE OF PICTURES THEY UPLOAD DIRECTLY AT PEOPLE : usually inside jokes or things he sees when out and about that reminds him of them.

MOBILE .
