“’Good morning, my dear Readers,’

“the Host says. ‘Even though I am off from work today, I will still be a little busy doing things that I find fun and spending time with my friends. I am very glad that I was able to take this break, and though unfortunately I will have to head back to work for the next couple of days after this, I’ll try to manage my stress better than I have been. I will be back in a couple of hours to answer questions, so I’ll talk to you all then.’“

Hiya! This is unnecessary information but I felt like sharing with you that people think I'm Irish when I speak English, even some southern English people, even though it doesn't, really. They've pointed out it's most noticeable with my R's, and also I have admittedly tried to learn Irish Gaelic but I ended up procrastinating too hard, so I don't think that's a cause...

i get people who can’t tell where i’m from because my accent is weird ((i read somewhere that odd accents are common in autistic people actually)) i got u
fun fact i actually really love the irish language ((we don’t call it irish gaelic, it’s just irish)) but they teach it very badly in schools, and because of that i hated it and never actually learned it
it’s upsetting to me now because it’s important to my culture and as a huge “fuck you” to england

I totally get the sentiment going around that people don’t want Percy to be a god’s champion just because everybody’s doing it, particularly because he’s got such a rough relationship with gods.

But I think that’s because he sought out the Raven Queen first, and the Raven Queen and Percy don’t understand each other. The Raven Queen is fatalistic. In her eyes, humans begin their lives imperfect, march toward their fates, and perhaps they achieve greatness, but they all end the same way: they go to meet her. Percy just doesn’t think in those dimensions. He altered the course of humanity with his invention, and blaming that on fate would be to shirk responsibility. He has seen people defy and defile death time and again. When he pleads with the Raven Queen for a way to fix what he’s done to the world, he is thinking of redemption but also that he lives as long as Whitestone lives, and that the impact of his weakness will matter, will change lives and end them, long after he is gone. The Raven Queen comforts him by saying humanity can achieve great things, but that is no comfort to Percy, whose greatest achievement is arguably the very weapon that killed him.

If there is a god who would understand him it would be Ioun. She’s a goddess of knowledge, an inventor, and like Percy she was betrayed and wounded in the course of invention. Ioun is blinded; Percy’s soul is in tatters thanks to Orthax. She lives in a place of uncomfortable paradox, where all knowledge should be shared for the sake of progress, and secrets are blasphemous, even if that knowledge can hurt or break or kill - but even then, even she has secrets she can’t afford to share. We haven’t seen much of Ioun, but I think she would think like Percy. Not along the threads of fate, like the Raven Queen and her champion, but in an impersonal chemical chain of combination and creation, knowing well the unforeseen impacts of discovery. She despises the aspiring god who took Percy’s family. Her domain is profoundly controversial and unsure. Percy asked his questions of the Raven Queen, and she answered the wrong questions. Ioun has probably asked Percy’s questions a hundred times about herself.

And of course there’s something delightful about the fact that Percy could earn the favour of the goddess that Pelor is protecting. 

It’s likely that any number of entities will be fighting over my soul when I die, he says. I know, says the Champion of Pelor, I’ll be one of them.

Have some parenting headcanons for father’s day!

–Despite Yuuri being the father that worries more about their kids, Yuuri is also the parent that says “don’t ask me, ask your other father if you can do that.” This is because, rather than saying ‘no,’ Viktor often gets involved in whatever crazy activity the kids have planned, and makes it both supervised and fun.

–”It isn’t fair,” Viktor murmurs to himself. He is looking down at a pile of children, two dogs, and his beloved husband. Yuuri had fallen asleep on the couch while watching Food Network. Viktor had been taking a nap in their extremely plush king-sized bed. And yet here Yuuri lies, blanketed by and being everything that Viktor holds dear, because Yuuri is the one everybody always chooses to sleep with. 

–If Viktor went overboard with petnames for Yuuri, then he has a SEA of petnames for his kids. “Do you think Papa even knows our real names?” Their eldest giggles. Yuuri blinks very slowly, thinks of JJ and Viktor staring with a pretty, unrecognizing smile at most of the sponsors. Oh my god, he thinks, no, that’s… “Of course I know your name,” Viktor laughs, giving her a squeeze, “remember when you went out on the ice unsupervised and tried a double and I had to scold you? I even know your MIDDLE name, kotyonok.”

–Apparently, years of avoiding the press to have a bit of alone time is not sufficient training for avoiding their children. Luckily, Viktor tends to not wear a shirt around the house anyway, so their son just eyes them disinterestedly before handing him a jar. “Open, papa, please.” Yuuri buries his face in his husband’s chest and slides off the table where he’d been sitting. A babysitter. They need a babysitter.

–“You’re so stupid,” Yurio says after Viktor spends ten minutes complaining about their current babysitter. “Why did you HIRE someone? Lilia and Yakov are furious. They’ve been taking it out on me during practice.” The children are henceforth deposited into Yakov and Lilia’s grim arms. Initially, Viktor worries they’re going to come home as soldiers. Instead, they come home spoiled.

When Dex invites Nursey to spend a chunk of the summer up in Maine, Nursey jumps at the opportunity faster than he’d openly admit (Dex is inwardly more excited at the affirmative than he’d openly admit as well). 

Despite hearing all about them, including an overview of every family member, Nursey is still unprepared for all the uncles that Dex has. Not all with the last name Poindexter (many of them in-laws); not all even officially uncles (rather many of them #-degree cousins whom are easier to call “Uncle”). Still, overall the family is a major presence in the small island community of less than a thousand folks.

To say nothing of the droves of cousins.   

So, to make things easy on himself, Nursey ends up categorizing each uncle (and their immediate family) by their vocation:

  • Boatdexter: Lobster boat uncle. 
  • Portdexter: Runs ferry service between Bar Harbor and Winter Harbor, including the island, which halfway on the route. Ferry functions as a commuter, school bus, and delivery service. 
  • Fixdexter: Repair shop. Is actually mainly a boatyard (a lot of the boats worked on are from off-island), but also can work on automobiles (which are barely used within the community). 
  • Shopdexter: Convenience and hardware store, with a backshop and fuel pumps (for both boats and cars), at the marina.
  • Dinedexter: Runs the main restaurant/bar/cafe in town. Also runs the inn that mostly sees business in the summertime. 
  • Waydexter: Maritime pilot who helps ships navigate the narrows. 
  • Bluedexter: Owns and runs a small scale farm mostly focused on blueberries. Not only taking the berries to market, but also opening the field to visitors so they can pick the fruit themselves (as blueberry season is in the summer, there is that sweet summer tourism traffic). Also grows other produce on the side. Farm overall is a joint-operation with…
  • Crandexter: Who mostly focuses on the small football field-sized cranberry bog adjacent to the rest of the farm (which he helps with as well). The bog is not flooded but rather dry-harvested.
  • Repdexter: Retired and now the village ombudsman to the county. 
  • Teachdexter: Him and his wife are teachers at the local school.
  • Tourdexter: Takes tourists around and past the bay during the summer, and works with Boatdexter in the off time. If you’re used to the rest of the family’s reservedness, his outgoing nature can be a bit unnerving. 
  • Copdexter: Sheriff deputy. 
  • Parkdexter: Ranger for the DACF. Also works with the NP rangers at Acadia.
  • Assdexter: Bigoted, misogynistic walking Breitbart mouthpiece. Quintessential Angry White Male™. 
  • And more…

Notes:

  • Assdexter’s existence is barely tolerated by the rest of the family (who are conservative, many with cringy traditionalist and heteronormative views, but not hateful/far-right; think more Collins, less LePage). That “barely” is simply by virtue of community and bloodlines, and the fact that he’s a useful extra hand. Other than that, “We have your back” does have its limits, and “tolerance” does not prevent a fist to the face. Doesn’t help that he may have called Dex a few choice words for choosing Samwell.
  • Conversations between Copdexter and Nursey get interesting. Seriously, they’re legit engaging discussions and debates that don’t always end in agreement but do involve civility and actual listening. To Nursey’s (and Dex’s) surprise, Copdexter’s the one to ask (not demand) Nursey (who otherwise would have stayed silent due to being a guest) first for an opinion.
  • Nursey’s favorites of Dex’s uncles are probably either Teachdexter or Parkdexter (especially after the latter toured the boys around on their free time).
  • Overall, Dex is chagrined at Nursey after finding out about the nicknames.
    • Then the uncles find out, and he’s scared that Nursey may no longer be welcome.
    • To his horror and frustration, they (barring Assdexter) actually find it amusing. Yeah, he wanted Nursey to fit in and be welcomed, but this is going too far.
    • Dex’s frustration may manifest along the lines of a sputtered “… liberal… idle rich… city boy…” accompanied by increasing redness as he short-circuits at the absurdity of it all.
    • In response, one of the uncles simply chirps, “Chill, Billy.”

I always struggle with drawing characters consistently unless I draw them a 100 times orz
figured I might as well play with different headcanons!

bifidosmetana  asked:

I don't know if anyone has mentioned this before... but we all know that silver and blue are the colours of the Wings of Freedom. And that perfectly match with the idea of why they made Erwin and Levi wear blue suit and silver leggins respectively. On that recent official art they are even placed on both sides from the kids just like the Wings of Freedom - silver Levi's on the right side and blue Erwin's on the left.

Oh my god! You’re right @bifidosmetana.  Now we know the real reason for this fashion disaster! 

noah fence but any of y’all comparing harry to ouat hook are just plain wrong i mean he may wear eyeliner but the boy is way closer to 2003 hook like?? the coat? the flair for the fucking dramatic & violent? & most importantly their knack for hanging out in shadowy red-purple places?

you know what?

unpopular opinion but I think hartman’s 10 years later videos (esp now that there’s a second one) really do capture the true essence of the show

aaaand by that I mean there are some pretty good ideas buried in there, ones that I would very much like to see more of, but overall I would very much like to take all these characters and put them somewhere very far away from butch hartman

NurseyDex Week Day 1 - Get Together/Mutual Pining

It used to be that Derek would look at Dex and see potential.

Potential what? Honestly, it varied day by day. On any given Monday he’d be a potential enemy, but by the following Wednesday night after a brutal battle against the mandatory freshman meal plan he’d be a potential compatriot (battle weary and scarred for life). Weekends were never stable - if there was a kegster raging, Dex would be a potential something - if they were on a roadie Dex would be a potential thorn in Derek’s side (harping on missed passes and making sure that Derek put his retainer in when he’d really just rather pass out, and really, what the fuck even) - and if they were studying-

Well.

Derek has always known better than to follow the line of thought as far as potential goes when Dex is soft around the edges and rubbing at his eyes with his fists to stay focused and dedicated and stable.

Because, honestly?

There are days when Derek can’t remember the last time he’s felt more balanced than when he’s got his knees knocking against Dex’s under the kitchen table, a half-eaten pie sat between them and Chowder’s books long since abandoned in favor of passing out.

So. Yeah.

It used to be that Derek would look at Dex and see potential.

Now though? With Dex’s fists curled in Derek’s favorite hoodie and Dex’s lips pressed so soft (barely fucking there) against Derek’s lips and their knees and their thighs and their shins and their everything tangled beyond anything remotely resembling a seamless extrication?

Fuck.

Derek opens his eyes and sees opportunity and hope and promise.

Derek kisses back, and it tastes like reality.

Harry and Draco in  the gym (again)

Ok, I know this is stupid but I can’t stop thinking about Harry and Draco in Auror training together, especially them competing at the gym. I literally think they would behave like the biggest ‘bros’ with each other.

I mean I can totally see Harry being all in Draco’s face like ‘’Look how swoll I am. Damn so swoll.’’

And Draco being like *squints* ‘’Can’t really see any muscle through the fat. At least I’m a lean bean.’’

And Harry totally unoffended going ‘’Yeah, but thick is the new black. Mmm, I’m so thiiiiiickkk.’’

And Draco just going for the kill like ‘’Finally catching up, huh? Been trying to get that across since Hogwarts.’’

I’m sorry I’m like this
