all that manliness


David Tennant and John Simm discussing the Master’s death in The Last of the Time Lords (and stubble-burns from manly-hairy chins)

Anyways, here’s my farm so far. its around 80% done. also i used @faemme’s layout here since i loved it so much, just put a tweak here and there. 

aand this picture took me forever to make since im stupid and i don’t know anything :)

man·lyˈ/manlē/ adjective -having or denoting those good qualities traditionally associated with men, such as courage and strength.

Tae likes to think he’s manly 24/7


It’s been a real dream of mine, since I was a young boy, to be a man. I achieved that when I was 18, but this obviously is the icing on the cake and the true recognition of what it takes to be a man — the highest honor. I’m just going to continue to do manly stuff throughout my life and uphold that title: chopping firewood, wrestling crocodiles, all sorts of manly business.

ViVi Magazine January issue - Kyungsoo cuts, part one

Staff: Full of thoughtfulness; he would go around the staff present, asking them to please share in his chocolate. Always open and in a good mood, but refuses to talk (laughs). He can be quite playful too!

Kyungsoo about other members:

1. Who sleeps the most? Jongin. He has a special ability. It’s like if he’s sitting, he’ll be sleeping. 

2. Who eats the most? Baekhyun. Everyone eats well but Baekhyun is building his body lately.

3. The most impatient? Chanyeol. That’s why I have to always ask him slow down. I’d rather be relaxed.

4. The member who burns hottest? Chanyeol. All the members are manly, but Chanyeol is even passionate in his private life. 

5. The member who cries most easily? No one lately. The ones who just don’t cry are Jongdae and myself.

6. Who has the best muscles? Baekhyun. He’s been training very hard lately. I’d rather not.

7. Who is the most attentive? Chen is someone who is always concerned and considerate of others. He has a lot to teach.

Mentions by other members: 

Xiumin: Who has the best muscles? Everyone but D.O. (laughs). Maybe because he isn’t working out right now but he has a cute tummy, like a little kid’s. 

Sehun: Which member is the most organized? D.O. He will often clean up after our messes. It’s in his personality.

Chanyeol: D.O. will sort his apps and worry over details.

Chen: Who is the most attentive? He is very sensitive/detail-oriented and is guaranteed to be looking after others. I am fond.

[Kyungsoo’s voice is…]

Xiumin: Trendy.

Baekhyun: Soft and calming.

Chen: Soft like a cloud.

Suho: Gray because it’s not just deep and warm, but has a clear and young tone too. If it were a food, maybe it’d be ice cream with a sweet topping?

NCT 127 On Their Period

Taeyong: The one who can’t stop watching romantic movies and crying. Lots of crying. Also the one to stuff his face with chocolate.

Doyoung: Literally cries at everyone for everything, “johnny why didn’t you give me a high five last week? Haechan why did you say I snore too loudly?’

Haechan: Screams about every single little shit that happens. Punches the members in the face because he tripped. Throws a rock at someone because they ran out of apple juice.

Winwin: A quiet sufferer. Acts chill around the other members but when nobody is around he is legit screaming. Probably wrecking the other members’ shit while they’re gone.

Johnny: denies that he’s on his period. Blames his cramps on not having enough potassium. Ends up getting blood on everything, says his leg got cut.

Jaehyun: tries to act all manly and shit about it. Ends up crying and getting really horny all of a sudden. Like he legit is trying to fuck Doyoung rn

Taeil: over prepares. He bought 10 boxes of pads and tampons, wipes and cramp medicine. Legit spent $200 on period products. Ended up not even having it.

Mark: tries to laugh it off. Tells lots of jokes and laughs a lot to try and make himself feel better. Ended up laughing too hard and then the crimson sea flooded out.

Yuta: Makes fun of all the other members because they’re getting their periods. Everybody stops and then he gets his and then he’s super salty about it. Ruins 11 pairs of underwear.

I feel like Newt’s masculinity/bad-ass manlyness is sometimes squashed in this fandom and people often portray him as feminine in fanfiction and klunk so I figured I’d make a list of examples of his bad-assery:

  • Thomas mentions multiple times throughout the books how strong Newt is 
    • He (Newt) reached down and helped Thomas to his feet - he was so strong it felt like he could rip Thomas’s arm off.” -TMR pg. 36
    • “Veins stuck out of his muscled arms” -TMR pg. 9
  • When Thomas got shot by a launcher Newt casually picked him up and chucked him onto the berg like nbd
  • he straight-faced suggested to Thomas that he get stung on purpose
  • “Newt slowly walked over to Minho and stopped in front of him. Then, quick as a striking snake, he punched him in the face. Minho staggered back and slammed into the empty weapons rack.” -TDC pg. 69
  • He survived the Scorch with a bum leg that probably hurt like hell the whole time
  • he’s an intense mother fucker don’t tell me otherwise
The black magician cannot use the symbols of white magic without bringing down upon himself the forces of white magic, which would be fatal to his schemes. He must therefore distort the hierograms so that they typify the occult fact that he himself is distorting the principles for which the symbols stand. Black magic is not a fundamental art; it is the misuse of an art. Therefore it has no symbols of its own. It merely takes the emblematic figures of white magic, and by inverting and reversing them signifies that it is left-handed.

The Tree of Alchemy

Alchemy, the secret art of the land of Khem (Kemet, ancient Egypt), is one of the two oldest sciences know to the world. The other is astrology. The beginnings of both extend back into the obscurity of prehistoric times. According to the earliest records extant, alchemy and astrology were considered as divinely revealed to man so that by their aid he might regain his lost estate.

According to old legends preserved by the Rabbins, the angel at the gate of Eden instructed Adam in the mysteries of the Qabbalah and of alchemy, promising that when the human race had thoroughly mastered the secret wisdom revealed within these inspired arts, the curse of the forbidden fruit would be removed and man might again enter into the Garden of the Lord.

As man took upon himself “coats of skins” (physical bodies) at the time of his fall, so these sacred sciences  were brought by him into the lower worlds incarnated in dense vehicles, through which their spiritual transcendental natures could no longer manifest themselves. Therefore they were considered dead or lost.

I felt strongly moved to explore the problems of humanity, its origin and destiny, and I spent a number of quiet hours in the New York Public Library tracing the confused course of civilization. With a very few exceptions modern authorities downgraded all systems of idealistic philosophy and the deeper aspects of comparative religion. Translations of classical authors could differ greatly, but in most cases the noblest thoughts were eliminated or denigrated. Those more sincere authors whose knowledge of ancient languages was profound were never included as required reading, and scholarship was based largely upon the acceptance of a sterile materialism.

Dear cis feminist

Please acknowledge that not all men have male privilege, not all men are seen as male, not all men are “manly enough” to have male privilege. And some men have life experience as a woman. And some people you assume are male aren’t.
~just a friendly​ reminder from your neighborhood transgender folk.

While the greatest, minds of the Jewish and Christian worlds have realized that the Bible is a book of allegories, few seem to have taken the trouble to investigate its symbols and parables. When Moses instituted his Mysteries, he is said to have given to a chosen few initiates certain oral teachings which could never be written but were to be preserved from one generation to the next by word-of-mouth transmission. Those instructions were in the form of philosophical keys, by means of which the allegories were made to reveal their hidden significance. These mystic keys to their sacred writings were called by the Jews the Qabbalah (Cabala, Kaballah).

Wooseok as a boyfriend [Pentagon]

Wooseok would be an awkward, manly boyfriend.

  • He would act all cool and manly, but would really be clueless and cute.
  • He would be the strong, silent type.
  • At times, he would be an awkward mess.
  • But, he would be an absolute sweetheart.
  • He would be overly protective of you.
  • He would always keep a watchful eye on you.
  • He would let others know when they are getting too close to you.
  • Until completely comfortable, he wouldn’t be able to read your moods, but he will always be cute and sweet to make up for any misunderstanding.
  • He would be caring. Always asking if you ate or if you are feeling sick.
  • He would be the master of back hugs.
  • In public, he wouldn’t show a lot of affection.
  • He would save all of his affection for private.
  • Every touch and kiss would be meaningful to both him and you.
  • Despite his manly appearance, he would need your constant assurance and opinion.
  • He would be a complete softy when it comes to you.
  • Your dates would be more like two friends hanging out.
  • He would play games with you then go get some ice cream or something else cold.
  • It would take him longer to do things, like introduce to friends and family, just because he would want to keep you to himself.
  • However, he would trust all of his hyungs to accept you and be kind.
  • He would play jokes on you occasionally, but you would rarely fall for them.
  • You would be able to read him like a book, yet he would remain a mystery.
  • You would have interesting conversations, but he would be easy to talk to. And he would always listen.
  • Sometimes, he would be awkward with expressing his feelings, but he’ll make you feel like his whole world.
