When INTP turns hippy vs. INTJ

INTP and INTJ are walking back from INFJ’s house. INTJ can’t stop sneezing because hay fever sucks. 

INTJ: If I had to be allergic to something of course it had to be spring-related.

INTP: How so?

INTJ:  I hate spring, I always have. And it just gets worse throughout the weeks. Spring symbolises the end of something, it is so depressing. 

INTP: Shouldn’t it feel like a beginning? 

INTJ: No. Finals come, it’s the end of the academic course and yet another year that was not as good as it could be. Autumn on the other hand…

INTP: But spring is indeed all about new beginnings, a new cycle. 

INTJ:
INTJ: Whut. 

INTP: It’s a new natural cycle! Everything blooms, the days are longer, nature resurfaces.

INTJ: (The fuck?). I don’t care about any of that compared to my yearly schedule. 

INTP: Everything looks beautiful and you’re just there. So grumpy.

An Elucien Epilogue (ACOTAR fanfic)

This is an epilogue-esque ending to “A Court of Wings and Ruin”, so obviously SPOILER ALERT!

Summary: Lucien returns to Velaris after the events of ACOWAR, determined to be a better male than Tamlin and put aside his mating bond if that’s what Elain wants.

Thank you THANK YOU thank you to the wonderful, talented, and overall amazing @feyre-archerons-scrapbook // @the-other-sam for being my Beta reader and pointing out that somehow my brain decided Azriel was a “Shadowslinger” XD  She’s seriously the best- everyone follow her!

ronanlyncx  asked:

u want promps and im a slut for angst so... andreil arguing?

hoo boy ok this is on my phone so bear with me the keypad is small.


“Don’t you fucking dare walk out that door.”

Neil was livid and then he was mad on top of that because Neil didn’t get mad. A name that Neil had long left in the past got mad, and this anger, this outrage, was a cold reminder that Neil was a fase front. A ruse, no matter how legal, was still a ruse when it boiled down to it, and when it boiled down to it Neil was livid.

Because someone had to care, even if it was a negative emotion.

“Why? Because I told you I would stop running?” Neil asked, turning halfway to face Andrew, hand still gripped on the door.

Andrew stood, feet shoulder length apart; casual. His arms hung limply by his sides, they were not locked with tension. Neil didn’t expect him to lock him in an embrace, but he sort of expected him to put up more of a fight.

“You don’t leave when things get hard, Neil. That’s the whole point of life, it being hard. You don’t just get to run off to Matt when you need to be coddled.”

Like a light to a fuse, Neil lit up in the night.

“Don’t fucking bring Matthew into this. This is between you and me. It’s our problem. You want me to stay? Fine, I’ll fucking stay,” Neil said, slamming the door, “But don’t you dare tell me how to be when you’re doing the exact same thing.”

“I’m standing right here. I never left. And I sure as fuck didn’t slam the door at ass o'clock in the morning, waking half of the complex no doubt,” Andrew bit out.

“Don’t pretend you give a fuck about them and don’t deflect because it won’t get you out of this talk. You wanted me to stay, I’ll stay, but we’re doing this now.”

Andrew didn’t flinch, but to Neil it was like he had physically recoiled. Neil deflated.

“Andrew,” Neil started, much gentler than he was mere moments ago, “This is going to be hard okay? We’re a this as much as you want to ignore that and I respect that boundary and I respect you. I apparently haven’t gotten over my temper and I got carried away. I apologize for yelling at you and acting like I couldn’t have a rational conversation.” The ‘even though you’re being a stubborn ass’ was silent, but Andrew read it in his posture.

He refused to speak, so Neil continued, “I don’t get to yell at you when I’m frustrated; fact. You don’t get to leave me for my own good; fact. The Moriyamas upped the price of my debt to them and it’s a debt I’ll always owe. Now, it’s fair if you want to leave, but you’re not doing it for me.”

“Don’t be simple. We need to come up with a plan.”

“Plan?”

“This is where the knight in shining armor,” Andrew pointed to himself, “saves the damsel in distress by slaying the dragon.” He shot Neil finger guns indicating that Neil was the damsel.

“Is this where I say I’m a damsel. I’m in distress. Have a nice day?”

Andrew rolled his eyes and stalked toward the table where the letter was sitting, written on heavy parchment.

“You can tell me I’m cute.”

“You can work on your anger and learn to speak rationally even when you want to be mad,” Andrew said, barely paying Neil any attention.

“About that…” Neil trailed off causing Andrew to look up. “I was thinking, if we were going to do this for real–domestic partnership–I think I would like to start meeting with a therapist biweekly.”

“Who are you and where’s Neil? I’ve seen Neighborhood Watch, I know how to kill you.”

“There are things I remember about Nathan—no let me finish, there are things I remember and I don’t know how much of it’s nature and how much is nurture, you’re the one who took the psychology classes in college,I just quizzed you, but I want to be all in with you.”

“I’ll never marry you.”

Neil laughed. “I wasn’t aware I asked, you egotistical maniac. I love you.”

“Yeah well, someone has to.”

INTJ: Oh, hello, insomnia. Long time no see.

INTJ: *After a few hours ends up sending ENTP brother a long vocabulary list of various adjectives as an alternative to using the word “very”*.

ENTP: …
ENTP: Have you seriously woken me up for this.

INTJ: Oh, didn’t mean to.

ENTP: It is 4 freaking 30 am.

INTJ: I know?

ENTP: Isn’t it too early for being such a nerd?

INTJ: It is never too early to enlarge and improve your lexicon! :D

ENTP:…
ENTP: Jesus Christ.

INTJ: I also have a list of pagan deities, wanna see?

ENTP: Go. Back. To. Sleep.

Pairing: Paul x Reader

Word count: 690


“You’ve lost your mind.” You feel so nervous that a laugh escapes your mouth. “He’s my friend! He’s just a friend! Is that so hard to understand? ”

“Yes, because he loves you!”

“He doesn’t love me, Paul! I’ve known him since forever.” You sit on the couch, closing your eyes for a few seconds to try to calm down.

Paul freaked out when you told him you spend the day with Dean, an old friend. He came from Canada to see you since it’s been two years you’re living here in Forks.

“You’re naive. You’ve always been naive and you can’t see what I can!” Paul is shaking, just like he’s just about to shift. You’re not scared. You were never scared of his temper.

“I am smart enough to understand these things, Paul.”

“I don’t think so since you’re apparently on his side.”

“I won’t stop talking to him just because you’re jealous.” Picking up your phone, you text your friend Marilyn. She’s the only one who can help you with this kind of problems.

“Don’t.” Paul takes the phone from your hands, throwing it at the wall. Shocked by his action, you gasp, trying not to punch him and break your damn arm. “You won’t text him.”

“I WAS TEXTING MARILYN!” You yell, running to your bedroom. You start to pack your things while Paul tries to make you stop. “I’m done. If you don’t trust me then there’s no reason for me to stay. I love Dean like a friend and I love you because you’re the love of my life. Not my fault you can’t understand it.”

“(Y/N), I’m still talking. Be rational and finish this conversation like an adult. ” The tone of his voice is rude and it breaks your heart.

“I’m still leaving.”


“I need you to stop crying and explain to me what happened.” Marilyn gives you some ice cream so you can eat something while you cry your heart out.

“I told him I wanted he to think about us. But he told me he didn’t need to think. Then I told him I needed to think. Do you really think I would break up with him?”

“I’m still confused.” Always so damn honest, Marilyn takes a deep breath.

“It’s about Dean!” You shout, making your friend jump on the couch.

“Oh. Got it. But Paul loves you so much and I can understand him. He’s scared to lose you.”

“He’s the love of my life. I already told him that a million times!”

“I’m sure you did, but how would you act if he spent a whole day with a woman? Even if she’s just a friend of his? A whole day alone with her while you stay home.”

You put the ice cream down to think. Well, to rethink. Maybe, just maybe, this is kinda your fault. Paul wouldn’t freak out if he went with you. And no, you wouldn’t like him to spend all that time with a friend.

“Shit.”

“Yes, shit. I’m not saying you have to apologize, but I do can imagine how he felt.”

“I love him, Mary. So much.” You whisper, tears still rolling down your cheeks.

“Call him.”

And that’s what you do. Fearing that he may be rude to you like he did earlier, you patiently wait for him to answer the phone. When he finally answers, you both keep silent. Hearing his breath is enough to make you want to be with him again and this desire takes your breath away. You barely feel it, this weird pain in your chest, since you’re always together, but you just can’t take it.

“Paul…”

“(Y/N), you have no idea how it hurts. Being away from you is… too painful.”

“I know, Paul, I… I’m sorry. I love you. No one but you.” With a smile on your lips, you help Marilyn to pack up your things again. “I’m sorry if I hurt you. Whenever I want to see Dean you can come. I didn’t know how much it hurt you.”

“I’m coming to bring you home. I love you.”

“I love you too.”

Islam apologists, you only have yourselves to blame

I know that nothing in politics is simple enough to be condensed down to a single issue but as close as this last election was, there’s a number of factors that helped swing the election in favor of Trump. One of them was his no nonsense approach to Islam. For years Muslim moderates, liberals and anti-extremists have been writing, lecturing and studying how to effectively reform Islam, deradicalize its followers and make it more compatible with the 21st century. Recognizing the distinction between people and ideas, these reformers promote tolerance and peace towards Muslims but unapologetically critique the ideas held in the Quran. This approach represents the very essence of American values - treat all individuals equally but scrutinize all ideas rigorously with critical thinking and rationality.

But at every turn, the reformers have been attacked, not just receiving threats from Muslims but by other liberals. Sam Harris was called an Islamophobe for criticizing the bad ideas held in the Quran. Maajid Nawaz, a Muslim of Pakistani origin and Ayaan Hirsi Ali, an ex-muslim from Somalia are still being labeled anti-Muslim extremists by the SPLC because they talk about reforming Islam. Only two days ago Ali had to cancel her trip to Australia as she received death threats. Death threats for speaking about Islam. Dr. Bill Warner, an Islamic scholar who has studied the Quran for over 30 years, was told by the president of a Florida college that he should be censored and never be allowed to speak because he was critical of Islam. When did it become standard practice for universities to support the censorship of ideas? Ali Rizvi, Wafa Sultan, Sarah Haider and other critics of Islam have all faced the same explosive reactions from leftists, the defenders of Islam, who don’t have the slightest clue what they’re defending. Merely scrutinizing an ideology is treated as social barbarism by those unable to draw the distinction between criticism of an ideology and contempt for its practitioners. Ironically, those actually living under oppressive Islamic regimes are often grateful for the secular voices speaking out on their behalf because with Islamic blasphemy and apostasy laws they have no voice.

The left loves to assure us that terror has nothing to do with Islam yet these terror groups are only following and copying what’s in the Quran and Hadith. It’s why we have the term “moderate Muslims” as they aren’t following their Quran, many Muslims have never even read it, they don’t adhere to the fundamentals of Islam as ISIS does. When you really start getting into the meat of the Quran and Hadith, there are doctrines that pose staunch opposition with classical liberal values. It’s easy to say the critics are taking the Quran out of context but there are hundreds of Islamic scholars and clerics all studying the context and none of them can agree on one interpretation. That’s why Dr. Shabir Ally can talk about the fair nature of Islam while Abu Bakr al-Baghdadithe, who also has a PhD in Islamic studies is running a campaign of hate and terror in the name of Allah. They get their fundamentals directly from the Quran and the Hadith. There isn’t a moderate version and a terror version, it comes from the same book. The same verses can and are interpreted in different ways by different sects but the fact that it’s full of bloodshed, hatred towards infidels, beheadings and mutilation, they leave the door wide open to such easy interpretation.

Many educated Muslim apologists arguing for the peaceful nature of Islam often avoid the Hadith, avoid violent verses from the Quran, and jump through hoops to try to interpret “beat them,” “slay them,” or “If somebody (a Muslim) discards his religion, kill him” in a peaceful way. But how on earth do they expect a billion Muslims - many in highly illiterate regions - to all interpret them as anything other than literal? Their violence and views come directly from the Quran and the Hadith, and for this reason alone these texts are imperfect and subsequently, so is Islam. The Quran is full of contradictions, granting Islam a tremendous amount of power because it can claim to be a religion of peace while simultaneously advocating jihad. People often say things like Islam was the first to give women their rights but Muslims are given the right to rape infidel women, permitted to rape and beat their wives and take part in polygamy. Muhammad himself at the age of 53 married and had sex with a 9 year old girl.

In Saudi Arabia, one of the most devout Muslim nations and home of Islam’s most holy site requires women have chaperones at all times, forbids them to drive, forces them to cover from head to toe and whipping and stoning women for being raped or holding hands with another female. Muslim women are denied education and within many Muslim countries only a quarter of the women are literate. In many Muslim nations they give women half a testimony in court, they aren’t allowed to speak or defend themselves in court without a male relative to speak for them and they’re often beaten or killed if they stray from any of these laws. God forbid if she has a bacon cheeseburger, wants to wear a t-shirt in summer or have a one-night stand. Even in the more “moderate” Muslim countries such as Turkey, their public swimming pools have great imposing dividing walls to keep women out of sight. Women aren’t even allowed to pray with the men, they are sent to the back or into another room. And god help her if she wants out of Islam. In some Muslim countries there are laws in place that condemn apostate with a death sentence while the rest have some other form of punishment for apostasy. They all at the very least have blasphemy laws that requires punishment of anyone who criticizes Islam or Muhammad. So much for freedom and women’s rights… The worst part is, Canada has recently voted for this exact Sharia law to be introduced into the country.

Apologists claim that the radical views and actions of many Muslims don’t represent Islam and they are using a peaceful religion for their extremism but religious extremism is not a problem if your core beliefs are non-violent. The problem isn’t fundamentalism. The only problem with Islamic fundamentalism is the fundamentals of Islam. These “radical views” which the left disassociates with Islam are really the most authentic display of Islam. It’s why 50 Muslim countries ban LGBT groups, 10 Muslim countries can legally kill gay people and many more legally whip and imprison gays, 16 Muslim countries ban all Jewish people from entering - how can they say it’s only a tiny fraction of Muslims who hold these extreme views when we are talking about entire Islamic countries following none other than Islamic law? We cannot be silent on this issue. We cannot let fear blind us or lose our compassion but we need to be discussing ways to promote assimilation and secular Western values.

Unfortunately the second we start to have this conversation, the Islamophobia card gets pulled out by privileged, blue haired buffoons who have never had their clitoris sliced off, have never had acid thrown on their face and have never been forced into arranged marriages against their will as those who they are calling Islamophobic have. Their idea of oppression is not being given free tampons from the government. They fail to distinguish the difference between anti-Muslim and anti-Islam so anyone who questions Islam must automatically make them Islamophobics who hate all Muslims. Phobia means an irrational fear and there is nothing irrational about approaching Islam with calculated caution but if you question it you are called a racist. Islam is not a race. It is a belief and a way of life that people of many different races choose whether or not to follow. It is an idea and if we can’t criticize an idea, then free speech is truly dead. All ideas should be questioned, no belief should be able to go unquestioned. If a belief is true then it will hold up to scrutiny and if it doesn’t then why try to hide it? There are thousands being killed and millions suffering worldwide in the name of a religion and yet some people are still concerned that we shouldn’t challenge a belief system for fear of offending? If terror attacks shake the beliefs of Muslims worldwide as much as they say they do and then it should lead them to question the violent nature at the core of their ideology and embrace an overhaul and begin to hold Islam to the same standard we demand and expect from other religions.

The fact is a lot of Americans are afraid because they don’t understand what’s going on, they know there’s a problem and they want to solve it in a kind and compassionate way but sadly the voices of reason, those that may be able to provide an actual viable solution are squashed. We should be having calm and rational conversation and debating how Islam needs to reform itself to be compatible with classical liberal values in the 21st century. Instead the conversation is constantly being hijacked by the apologetic, irrational left with character assassinating slurs which has silenced many great minds on the issue. Rather than having a progressive conversation about Islam, most politicians keep silent or make excuses for it, allowing someone like Trump to step in because he’s the only one that has ever addressed it. It’s why we have to put aside the septic PC gag and talk about this rationally because by silencing the intellectuals, the Muslims calling for reform and the anti-extremists, liberals on the left have handed a platform to Trump on a silver platter. The left only have themselves to blame for the rise of the Trump to presidency. Islam is guilty and the more you try to convince us it’s peaceful, the more we will prove to you that it isn’t. We must speak out and Islam must be criticized without relent for dogma, inequality, unwarranted violence and sexism have no place in the evolution and future of mankind.

When I’ll be ruling the world I want you to stand by my side and design my weapons.

bunnies and koalas

Jimin liked to sleep with Jungkook.

Jimin liked to sleep with anybody who would cuddle with him and really, any of the members were happy to cuddle him, but not everyone wanted to share a bed with him, except for Taehyung, Hoseok or Jungkook.

Jimin liked to sleep with Taehyung because he somehow always ended up being the big spoon and Tae was like a little kid, snuggled up to him and it was pretty cute.

Jimin liked to sleep with Hoseok because Hoseok treated him so softly, like he just adored him and was so glad that he existed and with their rigorous schedules, that felt really nice at the end of a long day.

But Jimin like sleeping with Jungkook best of all because Jungkook didn’t change.

Jungkook his exact same self that he was during the day, teasing, adorable, large.

Jimin could cuddle up to him and Jungkook would just let him.

He was a backhugger even in his sleep. Jimin liked falling asleep with Jungkook’s heart beating into his shoulder blades.

And Jungkook was a heavy sleeper, so Jimin could poke his cheek and his nose and run a hand through his hair without the other waking up. He could stare him sweetly, just like he did during the day, only without Jungkook getting all bashful or turning into a snark machine.

Jimin liked to sleep with Jungkook because they were just Jimin and Jungkook, and that was one of Jimin’s favorite things. To be with one of his favorite people as just himself, and Jungkook was just himself, and there was just some whispering and giggling and then just breathing and life paused for a few hours. Jimin felt very safe with Jungkook.

He always felt safe with Jungkook.

But he felt especially safe with Jungkook when there was nobody else around and he wasn’t really thinking or feeling or thinking about feeling or worrying or presenting or standing up straight or smiling or anything. He was just a koala and Jungkook was just a bunny and they were cuddle buddies and it was wonderful.

“Why am I always a bunny?”

“Because you are. You’re my bunny and I’m your koala.”

“You’re high on exhaustion.”

“You’re fighting a losing battle.”

“I don’t lose.”

“Sometimes losing isn’t really losing, Kook. Is it so bad to be my bunny?”

“…no.”

“You actually kinda like it, don’t you?”

“Yeah. But only because you’re my koala. It’s only fair if we’re each other’s.”

“We’ve always been each other’s, silly.”

“This is starting to sound weird.”

“Would it be weird if Taehyung and I were having this conversation?”

“And I was listening in? Yeah, it would be really weird. But not, I guess, for you guys.”

“Go to sleep, Kookie, we’re too tired to think rationally about this.”

“There’s nothing rational about this conversation, hyung.”

“Who cares? I don’t. Shush.”

“You’re cute.”

“I know. Go to sleep, bunny.”

“Mmph. Koala.”
