Word Count- 1250

Request-

Hey! could you do an imagine where you’re a tattoo artist and jack comes in for a tattoo and he flirts with you through the entire process and he asks you on a date?? Also could you tag me in it?? xx

A/n- this was so fun to write! and i’m back :)

~~

You were standing in the back of the tattoo shop with your coworker Ashley.

“-and then he left. I got even more pissed off at him at that,” she rambled one.

You were only half paying attention to the fake red head next to you. Your eyes were trained on the book in front of you.

“Y/n! Are you even listening?”

You were about to answer her when the bell at the front door chimed, signaling someone had entered the parlor. You closed your book, and walked through the opening to the front of the shop.

There were two blonde men; one covered with tattoos and the other with a few small ones.

The blonde with the sleeve was looking at the book full of options as the other, more attractive one, was leaning on the counter talking to the receptionist.

“Alright,” said AJ. “Abe,” he motioned towards the guy with two full sleeves, “You can go with Y/n. And Jack with Ash.”

You smiled at Abe, but he just leaned over to the boy you assumed was Jack. Jack rolled his eyes and said, “Can I please go with Y/n?”

AJ chuckled, “Sure.”

You were slightly offended that Abe didn’t want you tattooing him, but it’s not like he’s the first to do that.

You lead Jack to a chair and starting gathering your materials.

“So, Jack, what are ya getting today?” You asked, focusing on the ink rather than his gorgeous blue eyes.

“I was thinking of a skull,” he explained. “Right here.”

Your eyes followed his pointer finger that was pointing at his left forearm.

You two sat in a comfortable silence as you gathered your materials.

You began to wipe of his arm, “So,” you started.

“So?”

“I gotta ask, sorry.”

“Continue.” He raised an eyebrow at you, his beautiful blue orbs staring at you.

“Why didn’t Abe want me tattooing him?”

Jack looked over at Abe, you was currently getting his chest shaved.

He sighed, “He assumed you didn’t have practice because you have no tattoos.”

You looked over at Ashley, her entire right arm was covered, along with another tattoo here and there on her body.

You had been tattooing two years longer than she, but Ashley is always getting new additions. You enjoyed making them rather than getting them.

“I would like to add that I don’t think that,” he smiled at you. “I’m sure you make badass tattoos.”

You stood up and grabbed a pair of gloves, “Who’s to say I don’t have tattoos?”

He gave you a curious look.

You smirked, grabbing the gun.

“Please elaborate,” he flashed you that gorgeous smirk. If he kept it up, you might actually die.

“I have a few…” you said. “You just can’t see them.”

He scoffed, “I’ll believe it when I see it.”

“Smooth,” you giggled, causing him to laugh too.

“But seriously, what tattoos do you have?”

You pressed the needle to his skin. He didn’t even notice, all of his attention was on your eyes.

“I have four,” you said simply.

“And what are they?” He continued.

“I have a sock on my ankle,” you said as he leaned over the edge of the chair to look. “It represents freedom. You probably don’t get the reference.” You let out a nervous chuckle.

“Of course I do. I’m not an uncultured bloke ya know?” He laughed. “What else?”

Your focus stayed on his arm, “I have a star on my shoulder. My sister has one identical to it.”

He looked at you, motioning for you to continue.

“And I have a quote on my hip.” You added.

“That’s only three,” he said, and your breath caught in your throat.

Jack noticed your muscles tense and the guilt started to rise. You grip on the gun tightened as your focus remained on his half-finished tattoo.

“Look, Y/n, I’m sorry.” He sighed. “I didn’t mean to make you uncomfortable. You don’t have to tell me.”

“No it’s alright. Uh,” you grabbed the gun and started to shade part of his tattoo. “It’s my mom’s last heartbeat. It’s on my other ankle.”

Jack was mentally slapping himself. How could he be so bloody stupid? He should’ve quit while ahead.

“Listen, Y/n,” he started.

“No seriously Jack. It’s okay.” You gave him a small smile.

“Tell me about yours,” you added.

And he did.

He told you about the cross on his back.

And the God has a plan on his rib cage.

And the odd symbol on his right wrist which he admitted to getting while drunk and ‘I honestly have no idea what the fuck it is’. He found out about a week later that it’s the Egyptian symbol for life.

And how he got his birthday in Roman numerals.

“Alright,” you said, adding the final touch. “Here it is!”

He looked at it and frowned. Your heart sunk. It wasn’t what he wanted. You had just ruined someone’s life.

“What’s wrong?” You hesitated.

“Uh, nothing.” He shook his head. “I just feel like it’s missing something.”

You frowned as well.

“Okay, well let’s think,” you spun around in your chair and Jack laughed.

“What?” You smiled.

“You’re cute, that’s all,” he said, cheeks getting red.

“Oh thanks,” you were flustered. “So, why’d you get the skull?”

“To remind me that death is inevitable, and that I should go on tons of adventures so I don’t regret anything.”

You pondered, thinking of the perfect thing to add.

Suddenly it hit you, and you smirked at him.

“Do you trust me?” You asked.

“What do you mean?” He asked, eyebrows knitting together.

“Do you trust me enough to add something?”

“Well what is it?”

“It’s a surprise,” you smiled.

He hesitated, “I swear to god if it’s a dick, I’m going to sue you.”

You chuckled, “I wouldn’t do that.”

He sighed, “Okay. Just make it look nice.”

You scoffed and grabbed the gun once again.

~~

After about fifteen minutes you revealed your addition.

It was a halo.

“Oh my god I love it,” he smiled. “How’d you think of it?”

“It’s to remind you that there’s always someone with you on the journeys to take,” you smiled. “You’re never alone.”

He smiled once again.

After you gave him the speech on keeping it clean, you walked him to the front.

You rung up his total at the register, “I’m not charging you for the halo.”

“What?” He said. “Why not?”

“Because it was my idea. Not yours,” you smiled, handing him his receipt.

Abe was standing by the door waiting for Jack.

“Thanks again,” he smiled. He turned and followed his friend outside. You watched him through the faint glass window as he walked down the sidewalk and out of view.

You turned and sighed as you began to pick up your station.

Never going to see him again. Should’ve asked for his number you idiot.

You thought to yourself as you disposed of the used needle.

The door chimed.

“Would he it be possible if I could get your number?” You heard the familiar accent.

You turned and saw Jack standing at the counter.

You smiled.

“Is really like to take you on a proper date.”

“Proper? Are you saying what we had today was a date?” You asked.

“It is if you want it to be,” he smirked.

You wrote down your number and handed it to him.

He gave you a toothy smile and left the tattoo parlor once again.

Tragedy Queens: Stories Inspired by Lana Del Rey and Sylvia Plath TOC

Both of these artists explore taboo topics. They find the words to voice the things they are not proud of, the things that haunt them. It takes courage to do the verbal striptease. Let these two extraordinary muses guide you into your own heart of darkness.

nauti-em  asked:

Hey I just finished reading If You Could Be Mine by Sara Farizan and I'm wondering if you have any reccs for WLW books with happy endings or books with a female bisexual lead?

Ah, yeah, it’s her other book (Tell Me Again How a Crush Should Feel) that has a happy ending, and I rec it! My fave happy ending wlw books are Everything Leads to You by Nina LaCour, Dating Sarah Cooper by Siera Maley, Georgia Peaches and Other Forbidden Fruit by Jaye Robin Brown, Girl Mans Up by M-E Girard, Not Your Sidekick by CB Lee (which also has a female bisexual lead), Otherbound by Corinne Duyvis (ditto), Our Own Private Universe by Robin Talley (same), A&B by JC Lillis (uh huh), Labyrinth Lost by Zoraida Cordova (yep), Treasure by Rebekah Weatherspoon (NA), and Roller Girl by Vanessa North (adult). (My Under the Lights and Out on Good Behavior are also wlw HEA books - the former has a lesbian LI and the latter has a pansexual MC.) How to Make a Wish by Ashley Herring Blake is also a major fave wlw book with a happy ending and a bi lead, so make sure it’s on your radar - it releases May 2, 2016! (And two days later, The Seafarer’s Kiss by Julia Ember releases - I haven’t read it yet but I do know it has a cool concept and a bi female lead as well!)

A few faves with bi female protags that either don’t have the happiest endings, have happy endings with guys, or just aren’t really romance-centric: Far From You by Tess Sharpe, Not Otherwise Specified by Hannah Moskowitz, Over You by Amy Reed, Run by Kody Keplinger, and The Scorpion Rules by Erin Bow, plus the upcoming Noteworthy by Riley Redgate and Top Ten by Katie Cotugno. I haven’t read the upcoming Like Water by Rebecca Podos, Little & Lion by Brandy Colbert, or The Gallery of Unfinished Girls by Lauren Karcz yet, but you’re definitely gonna wanna have those on your radar as well, based on everything I’ve heard!

Kick-Ass Chicks: Samantha Rothenberg of Violet Clair

We are constantly deep-diving through Instagram to find posts that just SPEAK to us. The second we found Violet Clair, we went on an endless scroll of like after like. Created by Samantha Rothenberg, Violet Clair is a creative brand stemming from her illustrations, making everything from single comic panels, to pins and keychains. We all know that if there’s one thing to get us hooked when it comes to anything, it’s a pastel palette. DONE. SOLD.

Last month, we got to step inside Samantha’s Brooklyn apartment and took a trip to the bold, colorful street mural she recently designed!

Guardian’s Mate - Jennifer Ashley

Ashley’s Fast & Dirty Review™: my thoughts and feelings condensed for your reading pleasure because I don’t have time for that in-depth nonsense.  Will probably contain spoilers.

  • I gave up on this series a while ago when it started to get old and dull and also because there are just…so…many…books.  But apparently I was on the hold list for this ebook from the library (for months) so I figured why not.
  • He’s a were-polar bear and she’s a werewolf who has been “goddess touched” and thus basically cast out of her Shiftertown.  They bond on his boat over their mutual fates and intense sexual attraction.
  • Whatever you do, don’t try to imagine the hero with the hairstyle Ashley writes for him.  Just…please don’t do that.
  • “Don’t you like bears, sweetheart?” Zander’s voice dropped to a growl. “We’re cuddly.” Fuck yes, motherfucker. 
  • “Fire lurked inside her and Zander wanted to reach in and pull it out. So what if it burned him? Life was meant to be grabbed with both hands and lived.“
  • What put me off the Shifters Unbound books was what I consider bad pacing - just a series of misc. events (too many tbh) and then an ending.  This book does not exactly break that mold, but it is better than some of the others.  That being said, this one is really sexy, at times silly and adorable, and we need more were-bears - especially polar bears!

Four Stars

summer vibes
-
yayyy summer is almost here! here’s a little bucket list i made to keep track of everything i want to do and accomplish this summer. also my current read is: “Geekerella” by Ashley Poston and i’m in love 😍 what are some of your summer goals?

anonymous asked:

since the new year is upon us, i was wondering what your fave lgbtq books of 2016 were? (bonus: what are your top 5 of all time?) also, how's 2017 looking in terms of lgbtq books? hope ur having a good time!!

Oh man, 2016 was really my favorite year for LGBTQ books ever, so that is a tough call. ALL OF THESE ARE TOUGH CALLS. Let’s see…

2016 top 5 (in no particular order):

Last Seen Leaving by Caleb Roehrig
If I Was Your Girl by Meredith Russo
When the Moon Was Ours by Anna-Marie McLemore
A Darkly Beating Heart by Lindsay Smith
Strong Signal by Megan Erickson and Santino Hassell

All time…yeah, I need more time with this question. But if I were splitting up into categories, I’d say this is my knee-jerk:

Fave MG: George by Alex Gino
Fave Gay YA: More Happy Than Not by Adam Silvera
Fave Lesbian YA: Georgia Peaches and Other Forbidden Fruit by Jaye Robin Brown
Fave Bi Boy YA: the upcoming Autoboyography by Christina Lauren
Fave Bi Girl YA: Hmmm… this is too hard; I have a few major faves, and two of them are books coming from Ashley Herring Blake in 2017 and 2018.
Fave Trans Boy YA: When the Moon Was Ours by Anna-Marie McLemore
Fave Trans Girl YA: If I Was Your Girl by Meredith Russo
Fave Non-Binary YA: Symptoms of Being Human by Jeff Garvin
Fave Intersex YA: None of the Above by IW Gregorio
Fave Ace YA: …it hasn’t been announced yet but it’s coming in 2018. (And I also have super high hopes for Tash Hearts Tolstoy, but I haven’t read it yet.)
Fave Pan YA: Seven Ways We Lie by Riley Redgate

m/m Romance: Sutphin Boulevard by Santino Hassell
f/f Romance: I haven’t had that deep “need to reread” love with an f/f Romance, so it’s hard to call anything a favorite just yet. But Treasure by Rebekah Weatherspoon is probably the one I rec the most often. Ooh, and Roller Girl by Vanessa North.

As for 2017, I am super psyched about it. Some great trends:

1. Far more diverse casts, rather than the MC and LI being the only queer people in the book. Get ready to see secondaries who are genderqueer, genderfluid, asexual, and more in several YAs.

2. Far more underrepresented labels than we’ve seen on page before. I’ve seen the word “pansexual” in at least three YAs from 2017, and there’s a major on-page demisexual character as well. (Technically a 2016, since that’s when Radio Silence was first published, but it doesn’t come to the US until 2017.)

3. Lots more characters who are Out at the book’s start. I love Coming Out books, but for those who’ve been dying for YA to go beyond, especially in contemp, you’re gonna be really happy. And even the notable Coming Out books are doing great new stuff.

4. Much more racial diversity - thank the freaking lord. And from authors of color, too.

5. Amazing queer secondaries in cishet books - The Upside of Unrequited by Becky Albertalli and Geekerella by Ashley Poston both have ridiculously cute secondary f/f romances, and Upside has queer moms as well.

Faves in 2017 so far: How to Make a Wish by Ashley Herring Blake, History is All You Left Me by Adam Silvera, The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue by Mackenzi Lee, Our Own Private Universe by Robin Talley, The Cursed Queen by Sarah Fine, At the Edge of the Universe by Shaun David Hutchinson, Looking for Group by Rory Harrison, Ramona Blue by Julie Murphy, Autoboyography by Christina Lauren, and there’s a great bi YA I just read coming out in the fall that hasn’t been announced yet. 

In adult, I’m just suuuuper psyched to know there’s m/m sports romances coming from two of my fave m/m authors - Santino Hassell (football) and AJ Cousins (baseball). Here’s hoping more f/f authors jump on that train too!

Tumblr headcannons for Until Dawn

•Emily is all about fashion. She posts all these independent lines, as well as name brands. Whenever fashion week happens her entire blog is nothing but edits and news for the top designers. She enjoys taking selfies of herself in designer outfits and tagging them “fashion.” Ultimate style guru. She follows Jess.

•Jess is basically WeHeartIt. All these motivational quotes and images and Just Girly Things~, but she also has tea on everyone. People go to her for advice when they don’t want “just be friendly,” no, she gives them great ways to come back at people, then reblogs a black and white photo of a couple kissing at a lighthouse. She follows Emily.

•Ashley goes through phase after phase, and it all shows up on her tumblr like rings on a tree; her witch phase, her screenwriter phase, her watercolor phase. The constants are poetry and nature photography. She also enjoys religion and culture, but who knows if that’s not just another ring. She follows Jess and reblogs a lot of her couple and nature photos, and follows Chris and Sam and the twins.

•Sam is such a bibliophile. Half her blog is dedicated to her favorite books, the other half to her love of nature and Rock climbing. She takes selfies on every mountain she takes and puts them all up. She’s also really into posting healthy recipes for hikes and climbs, and gives out information on any topic. Total blog mom. She follows everyone, but really only reblogs Ashley and Hannah.

•Hannah is all about shipping. She has several OTP’s and she loves posting about them and their undying love. Lots of “imagine your OTP” and “Draw your OTP,” which she does for fun rather than notes. The gang tags every butterfly they see for her, instant reblog. She also posts tattoos. Occasionally, she’ll talk about tennis. She and Beth have complimentary blog names, and often comment on the same post. She writes the most tooth-rotting fluff fics. Follows everyone, reblogs a lot from Jess, Mike and Ashley.

•Beth is a very casual blogger. No real theme to what she blogs, as it’s really just a mix of what everyone else does. Team Always On Mobile. She rarely gets messages, but she responds to them very thoroughly. She follows a lot of viners, occasionally she’ll add audio descriptions to the videos when she sees they don’t have any. Follows Hannah, Emily, Jess, and reblogs a lot of Josh.

•Matt is all about sports, it doesn’t even matter what kind. He loves commenting on games. Occasionally, he’ll post a highlight reel set to music. Live tweets every major game with very fluent speech. He also reblogs a lot of pictures of attractive women, including some fashion, especially since he’s following Emily. He unironically uses the Madden gif maker. Follows Emily, Sam, Mike and Beth.

•Mike is so naturepunk it hurts. He posts pictures of wolves all the time and actively participates in the Debunk False Wolf-Dog Claims community. Very outspoken about animal abuse, very against PETA. He reblogs every picture of a dog and tags it with Jess’s url and ‘pleeeeeeease.’ He made his theme all on his own, very proud of it. Follows Jess, Sam, Ashley, Beth and Hannah.

•Chris is such a nerd oh my god. Posts a bunch of video games, huge RT fan, loves watching speed runs. He’s always on top of the memes and uses them in casual conversation with the guys. Posts wild theories about his favorite games, movies and television shows. May or may not believe in the illuminati, he’s too sarcastic to tell most of the time. Icon is a pic of him and Josh, description includes the words “bone zone.” But you totally should read his fics, they’re all dark and sad, but also in character. Follows the twins, Ashley, JOSH, Sam and Mike.

•Josh is such a film buff, especially horror. He loves creepypastas and nosleep. Treats his blog like a journal. He narrates, occasionally, when he feels up to it. He loves black and white photography, especially of disturbing images. Very artistic. He’ll sometimes have trouble keeping up with it, but when he’s on, he’s posting high quality spoops. If he sees something that reminds him of one of the group, instant reblog. Blog title: The Bone Zone. He follows the twins, Sam, and Ashley, but he reblogs just about anything Chris does.

Training your grip

Today’s post is geared toward that all too important grip strength.  A lot of aerial newbies find themselves lacking in that department.  It’s also a muscle group often neglected by seasoned aerial students.  Just like your pull ups and piked inverts, you just cannot stop training your grip.

The funny (read: not funny) thing about losing your grip is that you don’t always know it’s coming.  You may start to feel tired, but think that you still have plenty of energy left in the air.  I’ve witnessed a person training in the air and, without warning, their grip just gave out.  They’re okay, but it can be scary and a health hazard to let your grip strength training fall to the wayside.

What to do?  Besides static holds and lifting weights, you may need to take your grip strength training outside of the studio or gym.  My favorite grip toy is the Black Diamond Forearm Trainer.  If the name looks familiar, it’s because Black Diamond makes a lot of rigging hardware and equipment for rock climbing (and aerial applications).  I keep this one in my purse and play with it while I’m driving (or riding shotgun), waiting in line, or in an office.  You can even buy a set of three different resistance levels through Grip Pro.

As much as I love these, you can’t forget the opposing movement.  Instead of squeezing, you also need to expand your grip for all around super buff Popeye arms.  You could use run-of-the-mill hair elastics or rubber bands, but at some point you’ll start breaking them or wearing them out quickly.  So, you can upgrade to a Forearm/Finger Resistance Band (set of five, so no excuse not to leave one in the car, your purse, bathroom, desk, and the other to be stolen by your cat). 

I also saw the FlexEx Hand Exerciser for less $$$, but I have not personally tried it.  For $7, it’s not too much of a gamble and I’ll probably end up ordering one today to give it a go (I’ll let you know how it works out).

I was also curious about the Thera-band Flex Bars in different resistance levels:  Extra LightLight, Medium, and Heavy.  If you’ve tried these, I’d love to hear your thoughts.

Hey!  Another book!  Last but not least, there’s an affordable, $3, eBook by Ashley Kalym:  GRIP - Develop bone crushing, hand, finger, and forearm strength.

That’s your training tech for today.  I might talk about my favorite leggings next time…

anonymous asked:

Hello! I was wondering if you could recommend me some YA books with f/f relationships where the main conflict isn't coming out or homophobia. I want to read just some genuine f/f romance.

At your service! In Contemp, check out Everything Leads to You by Nina LaCour, Girl Mans Up by M-E Girard, Radical by E.M. Kokie, Winning by Lara Deloza, Cherry by Lindsey Rosin (those are both multi-POV books where one has a very cute f/f Romance), You Know Me Well by David Levithan and Nina LaCour, Lunaside by JL Douglas, and Ask Me How I Got Here by Christine Hepperman, and make sure the following are on your TBR for 2017: How to Make a Wish by Ashley Herring Blake, Queens of Geek by Jen Wilde, and Meg & Linus by Hanna Nowinski.

If you’re an SFF fan too, make sure you grab Labyrinth Lost by Zoraida Cordova, The Scorpion Rules by Erin Bow, Of Fire and Stars by Audrey Coulthurst, Otherbound by Corinne Duyvis Not Your Sidekick by CB Lee, and everything by Malinda Lo.

There are also some books where coming out is the main thing but it’s not the main angst source (if there’s much angst at all), like Style by Chelsea Cameron and Dating Sarah Cooper by Siera Maley - both are adorable, and if you want f/f Romance, I wouldn’t advise missing them!

HEY GUYS ! I’ve done my Book 2016, that I presented at the oral test for “Gobelins l’Ecole de l’Image”. 


You can find it here : http://mariededuratbook2016.tumblr.com/


(There is also a permanant link just under my description up here on this tumblr ! Thank you again for all your support and your kind words, it means a lot ! 
BESOOOOOS

Just a Few Words...

So I know everyone has been campaigning hard… and by no means stop doing that… But, I just wanted to say a few things about this fandom real quick.

I think y’all are so awesome! I can’t believe how quickly we assembled and started campaigning to move the show to another network. We are a resilient group and I can’t believe I’m part of such a wonderful group of people like this! No words… Just love. I love y’all so much. I know how corny that sounds, but idgaf. 

Since coming into this fandom in April 2016, I’ve spoken to so many intelligent people in this fandom, made some great friendships, and learned so much. 

Anyways, just want to give a few shoutouts to some of the people I’ve met:

@sapphireofthe90s - You were my very first friend in this fandom and I’m eternally grateful. I don’t ever take that for granted. You’re so smart and I love talking with you! You’re just a great friend :D

@theowldetective - You were the one who really inspired me to start analyzing the show. You’re a force to be reckoned with and even though you get the nasty trolls, you’re still awesome all the time! Keep it up girl!

@bmwwritinggmw - Kat you’re amazing in every way. I’ve never looked up to someone I didn’t know as much as I look up to you. I really hope you accomplish everything you want in life. And I’m sure that when you start writing for TV shows and movies, they’ll be nothing short of brilliant. I also love how kind and understanding you are and how objectively you analyzed Girl Meets World. You really stood out in this fandom and I’m so glad someone like you is on here. 

@srnackle - Nicole! You’re awesome. No seriously. You’re awesome. I hope you’re able to really enjoy university and have all kinds of great experiences! You taught me so much about blocking and other elements of television and I just enjoy our conversations. I know you’re crazy busy, but I hope you’ll always be writing in one form or another. You’re such an amazing writer and I really hope you know that! 

@summonerserahheart - Sarah! I’m so glad you’re on here! You’ve been so awesome in helping to round up this fandom along with @likeapromises. I love your theories and I think it’s so dope that you’re writing a book! You’re always encouraging us when things are tough and I just want you to know how much I appreciate that!

@cowboyandshortstack - Ashley! I love your blog. I love our conversations even more. You’re so smart, but you’re also so level headed as well. I like that any time I had a question about Lucaya, you’d always let me run something by you. I think you have, arguably, the best understanding of them out of anyone in the fandom! Thanks for talking with me :D.

@astralfreckles - Tali! I love reading your stories and well… just anything you put out! I’m so glad that we met on here! I never thought that I’d actually be able to meet so many wonderful people on here. Keep killin the game! You deserve nothing but the best.

@queenmal103 - Arielle! I owe you the biggest apology! I know we’ve been working on a story together, but I dropped the ball so hard. Anyways, you’re just killin it at life. You’re everything I hope to be someday lol. We may not talk as much, but I really appreciate who you are. 

@isdorasmckle - So I know we only had one conversation, but I really want to thank you again for being honest with me. I know it wasn’t easy, and I know that it can be tough to speak up - but I’m so glad that you did! And if you ever get the opportunity to speak up again, I hope you take that opportunity. 

If y’all aren’t following any of the above, you need to asap!

I’ve met so many wonderful people in this fandom. And I’m sure I’m forgetting a whole bunch of people! I think you’re all awesome so forgive me if I didn’t mention you. I’m honestly so floored at how many amazing people there are in this fandom and how much we’re willing to work together to try and get this show renewed. Even if our efforts go unrewarded, I still think that this has to be the best online experience I’ve ever had. I feel like we’re one big weird online family and this post is incredibly cheesy, but idgaf. I love y’all and I’m not afraid to say it!

Keep up the good fight!

The Toast’s Mallory Ortberg came up with the idea for her new book, Texts from Jane Eyre, when a friend who’d relocated to the South told her it was like living in Gone with the Wind, but with cellphones.

Ortberg tells Neda Ulaby, “I just immediately thought, ‘Oh, God, Scarlett O'Hara with a cellphone would be horrifying.’ ” But also HILARIOUS:

Scarlett O'Hara:
ashley
ashley
ashley
ashley r u there
ashleyyyyyyyy
(i’m DRUNK (from brandy))
remember that time we made out in the barn

Ashley Wilkes:
Scarlett, it’s four in the morning and I have to get up in two hours to run your mill
Please don’t text me this late

Scarlett O'Hara:
oh i sold the mill
haha

Ashley Wilkes:
Oh my God.

Scarlett O'Hara:

that’s why im not wearing any :)

Ashley Wilkes:
OH MY GOD

Theory: Charles

Remember everyone.. this is my THEORY its all just opinion :) its long but good, keep reading…

Firstly i want to start by saying there is no darn way that Jason is dead and Charles took over!!! They are not identical, they are not confirmed to be twins AND that is WAY too similar to the books so… noCharles DiLaurentis was #gettingwarmer so its not 100% correct. The name is Charles DiLaurentis but we know him as wren kingston

So another huge clue! The Name Wren means RULER. A deep inner desire for adventure, set their own pace in life.. hmm 

Remember the clue in Monas mirror, sentence 3. A RULER’s list chained. Maybe its not an anagram.. but hidden meanings buried in the sentences.

Chandaliers rituals - prom, jewels, fancy dresses

sisters launched lair - built lair to capture his sister (ali)

A rulers list chained - wrens list of victims, handcuffed

Okay.. we see Andrew lurking outside Monas house the day they found Monas alleged clue. 

Theory: Andrew planted that there to get the ball rolling and the wheels spinning. Basically to start As game. He also planted the ice pick that would get the girls arrested.  this starts As dollhouse fun

Marlene mentioned that she put a lot of clues between season 3 and 5. This is the time Wren got a job (working for free) at Radley. He started to hit on Hanna, he tried getting close to Spencer again. Also, lets say Andrew is his helper.. he helped Mona join the decathalon team, he got Spencer taking pills again. Mona betrayed them by saying she killed Wilden, ruining their plans and “taking credit” for something she didnt do (remember what Andrew said about Mona). Wren manipulated Mrs.Hastings to basically stupidly visit mona and have to pull herself off the case, when he said “you take care of your end ill take care of mine” so this puts ashley marin back in the guilty light.

Remember the time Spencer kidnapped Malcolm? Eddie wanted to give her a book? I thought something was off about Eddie when Wren fought him on this. Then i realized… Wren KNEW Spencer was not in her room… therefore Eddie would know and report it. WHICH MEANS Wren knows about A, Spencer joining the team, and how to sneak out (just like Mona)

Theory: Wren stole the game from Mona. Cece was on his payroll. She is not loyal to Alison.

5x25 - the big clue was the age. Charles is older than the girls. (Jason, Melissa, Ian, Wren are all the similar age.) Now the video shows us Jessica Dialaurentis on the old Campbell farm with a baby and 2 young boys.

Im hoping Jessica DiLaurentis is a Campbell and thats where Andrews motives came from.

The boys ARE NOT IDENTICAL. One is taller, one is shorter their features are different. We can assume the smaller mushroom cut haired boy is jason!

because that is not his sister

We will learn more about the night Bethany died. Im assuming Bethany was hit and buried. Then wren hit Ali and Mrs.D buried her alive ontop of bethany.

Wren is blackmailing Melissa with the info of her burying Bethany alive to have her help in his A game. She is black widow.. secretly helping the liars and knows EVERYTHING she will be endgame

Wren is still considered a present character. Check out Julian Morris wiki page

Wren Clues are plastered through season 3 and 4, he is also mentioned through season 5. All wren is A clues are here: http://pretty-little-liars-hints.tumblr.com/post/107437180673/wren-is-a

Managing the emotions of trading

External image
Trading is hard, but it’s even harder because our emotions so often work against us. In this episode, I look at some ideas for managing emotions and putting them to work for you, instead of against you. Here are the show notes:

Every decision we make is a combination of emotion and rational analysis. We cannot eliminate emotion, so don’t try! The goal is not to eliminate emotions, but to manage emotions.

Common emotional mistakes traders make. Maybe you’ve made some of these?

  • Forcing a trade
  • Can’t pull the trigger (to get in or out)
  • Staying in loser too long
  • Reentering after getting stopped out
  • Revenge trading
  • Bigger size, trying to make it back
  • Getting out too early

Emotions interfere with intuition because they use the same “channels” (physical sensations) in the body.

Be careful of emotionally charged learning experiences! The worst thing that can happen is you make a mistake, get lucky, and make a lot of money. When this happens, you should be very scared because you just had a bad learning experience.

How to manage emotions manage

  • Understand your emotions
    • Even “bad” emotions have a good purpose
    • What is the emotion’s constructive reason for existing?
  • Release emotions
    • The Sedona Method has been useful for some people to release negative or trouble emotions. (Check out the book here.)
      • Invite yourself to experience emotion fully
      • Could you let go of this emotion?
      • Would you let go of it?
      • When?
  • Work to avoid emotional mistakes
    • Pattern interrupts
  • Use your emotions to work for you
    • There is probably a followup podcast lurking here!
