also i like this a lot okay like best

agentsokka  asked:

Not sure if you've made posts about it before (sorry if you have!), but could you elaborate more on the alphas not 'getting' each others' main flaws? I'm really curious since I haven't heard their relationships described like that before.

Sure, let me try to articulate what I mean here. 

Basically, the alphas as a group all love each other SO MUCH, which is awesome, they’re this closeknit squad and they’re all so important to each other and their relationships all make me feel enormous sprawling feelings, but the sheer AMOUNT they all love each other sort of blinds them to some of their own needs. They all want to think the very best of each other, and the occasional thoughts they have about each other that aren’t like 100% positive get immediately suppressed and marinated in guilt juice and they try not to acknowledge it and go back to focusing on the good instead. 

So they’re all kind of bottling things up about each other, right? But it doesn’t come from any malicious place, it comes from a place of wanting to be the best they can be because they care about everyone else’s opinion so much but also knowing they aren’t always their best selves – and knowing their friends aren’t always their best selves – but if THEY know their friends sometimes are shitty, that means everyone else might know that THEY are sometimes shitty, too. 

They’re all trying so hard to downplay the bad and upjump the good, which is MUCH MUCH easier to do with online relationships. 

You throw them into physical proximity and suddenly those annoyances you all tried so hard to pretend didn’t bug you that bad and never talked about because talking about unpleasant things is, well, unpleasant, start to boil over. Put that on top of the stressful circumstances that led to several relationships starting the session OFF more strained than usual, and wow. They had no fucking chance. 

I love the alphas so much – they got shit on by a lot of the fandom because their plotline was so internal and cerebral, but that is the kind of shit I LOVE. The betas were all friends, but they never felt like ONE GROUP to me. The full four way group dynamic never crystallized. We always found them interacting one on one and rarely ABOUT one another, because the betas’ conflicts were more or less external. The betas’ story up to Collide was them vs the environment, the game, doc scratch, sburb, the horrorterrors. The alphas’ story is so much about THEM. Their relationships. Them as a group. Their interpersonal issues and foibles and there’s this element of nitty gritty real HUMAN-ness to their struggles that isn’t super present with most of the betas who feel like more fantastical figures that struggle against equally fantastical antagonists. (The betas KIND OF segue into something like this post-Collide, but it’s not expounded upon as much, they’re split into different groups, and also a lot of it got retconned - Jade and John had some interesting moments on the boat but that stuff was probably the biggest victim of the retcon.)

OKAY. 

Here’s an example of what I mean to wrap it up: 

Jane and Roxy are best friends, they love each other deeply, you can tell from their every interaction that they care tremendously about each other’s opinion of them, but. Roxy has a drinking problem. This (I think) clearly makes Jane uncomfortable sometimes, but Jane suppresses it and pushes it down because she wants to think the best of Roxy, she minimizes the issue. No one ever confronts Roxy about this very serious problem she has in any real or effective way (not just Jane, NO ONE does this) because they all want to think the best of her and oh… haha….. it’s just a little foible… just  a quirk…. it’s cool…. not a big deal …. I’m sure roxy has her life under control no big deal!!

Basically EVERY alpha relationship has something like this going on. Everyone downplays how much the AR bugs them because hey I’m sure Dirk has things under control he probably does this on purpose god Dirk you’re so silly jeez Dirk we’d really like to talk to you instead of your fucking hell robot sometimes but oh well I’m sure Dirk knows what he’s doing ho hum let’s all downplay how much this actually bothers us because we want to think the best of Dirk and can’t imagine him ever creating a situation he genuinely cannot deal with or control because well gosh he’s just so capable!

Everyone downplays how selfish Jake can be because oh well Jake is just silly he’s so nice he doesn’t MEAN to be this way I mean it’s JAKE how could Jake English ever do something as vaguely malicious as take advantage of how he KNOWS Jane never really says what she’s thinking if that thing is hard to say and use that to his advantage to give him a perfectly reasonable out on having to tell her he isn’t interested in a romantic relationship with her and then, KNOWING she actually did have a huge crush on him, constantly inundate her with his issues with his boyfriend for months thereafter. Surely Jake could never be that manipulative he’s so nice!! (NOTE: I love Jake English, specifically BECAUSE of things like this, I honestly would not like him if he were actually the way fanon paints him all the time, some weak cinnamon roll that can do no wrong.) 

etc etc etc

This is why I love the alphas! They are a group of fucked up teenagers who are all struggling so fucking bad but all need their friends to believe everything is ok, and who need to believe their friends are ok, who want so bad for each other to be happy that they sabotage themselves both individually and as a group in misguided attempts to pretend at and manufacture that happiness without actually doing the hard work of fixing the underlying issues preventing them from TRULY achieving it. 

(The one issue, as with most things in Homestuck that I have issues with, is that we are not shown the resolution to these arcs and struggles in canon, boooooooooooooooooooooo)

what if kitty todoroki

bonus:

what i know about critical role, in summary

almost everyone i know is into this show except me, and this is what i’ve picked up by osmosis or them explaining things to me:

  • there’s some dude with like ten names (one of them is percy but goddamn if i know the rest) who wears glasses that have smaller glasses attached and a lot of people like him and are also really sad for him?
  • vex is the one with the bear and also probably the best?? i think she wears feathers?
  • also yeah there’s a fucking bear apparently, how can they sneak anywhere it’s a fucking beAR
  • I REALLY AM CONCERNED ABOUT THE BEAR, LIKE, is he okay even if he’s not sneaky
  • there are really cute girlfriends, somewhere (one of whom is blonde?)
  • the bard(?) made a shirt of that one meme of matt mercer pointing and possibly lost inspiration points for it
  • there was a dinosaur at some point?
  • i think their mage(?), keyleth, apparently has really big deer horns and i wonder constantly if she ducks every time they enter a room, does she do that
  • vex has a twin edgelord brother and i know nothing about him other than that my friend’s tag for him and some other dude is “pour one out for vax’ilmore” which already makes me sad for them
  • also yeah apparently gilmore would be my favorite according to… everyone i know, because he’s little and gay and grieving and inhumanly powerful, so probably they’re right and i’d cry about him
  • can the raven twins fly or what like do they actually have wings, because, cool, but also fanart is really confusing
  • peoples’ tags for this show make me laugh bc it’s like #vax’il’dan vas normandy and #percy longshanks prettyboots coconuts mcrolo and #grog strongjaw and then just fuckin #matt mercer as if matthew mercer was just chillin out with his friends, the ten fantasy demigods
  • wait i remembered the bard is called scanlan and i think he tries to banish boss monsters a lot?? i saw like three seconds of a random episode where he went “GET LOSSST OH MY GODDDD” as if through a horn which i appreciated
  • idk why i know grog strongjaw’s name by the way i know nothing about him but i trust him?
  • they have their cleric on skype which i just… love, as a concept, it’s like having a doctor on call, it just tickles me
  • how many characters honestly are there because there’s like five…six? seven? of them playing but i listed at least ten
  • lots of puns
  • found family bonding over their fear of matt mercer
  • it’s a good time

I really wanted to write some polyfrogs + farmer stuff bc I love my frogs! and I want them to be together and date and love each other! but I also love charmer and chowder and farmer are just the cutest together. sO

  • it starts out as kind of a weird arrangement?
  • chowder and farmer are already together
  • nursey and dex (finally) get together
    • chowder is really, really happy for them. he’s wanted this FOREVER
    • he’s honestly more invested in their relationship than they are. he loves love and he loves his friends
  • they all end up going on double dates together as a result! jerry’s, annie’s, etc.
  • nursey dex and chowder are always bringing big ass signs to farmer’s volleyball games and she lets them tag along when they go out for team win meals
  • farmer against the glass for their home games screaming her head off
  • they get along really well and they’re pretty much always together.
    • nursey has everyone’s class schedule memorized
    • he brings them coffee a lot
  • as a result of them always being together both in a physical sense and in like, a romantic context, chowder kind of naturally associates all of these people in his life with romance and dating
    • he starts feeling kind of… guilty? because he loves farmer! and she’s great and she makes him really, really happy, and they’re great together
    • but chowder also starts noticing how much he likes when dex gives one of those big, full smiles
    • and how when he falls asleep in the haus on the couch, nursey will pick him up instead of waking him up and take him to his room and instead of just laying him down, makes sure he’s under the covers
    • and he finds himself making excuses to be around them even more than he already is
  • farmer gets really confused because chowder won’t meet her eyes sometimes and he goes pink when looking at nursey and dex
  • this is getting long jesus

anonymous asked:

I'm intending to move out of my mom's by fall, but I have two cats, and idk much about how to care for them on my own. I want to do it right, but I'm not very good with figuring out vet info or other care stuff for them.

Okay, so I’ve just spent the last two hours writing this post for you, in the hopes that you will change your mind. It’s way longer than I intended, but I tried to be thorough and comprehensive. Know that I have strong opinions about how to raise cats because they’re a huge part of my life. You might not agree with what I have to say, but this is what’s worked for me. I urge you to try different things and find out what works best for you! Before I get into it, let me talk about my cats…

I have a four year old orange tabby (Mason) and a sixteen year old tortoiseshell cat (Gretel) pictured in Appendix D. They have completely opposite personalities (Mason is super confident and talkative, Gretel is more standoffish) and they did NOT get along for the longest time. I’ve been with Gretel since she was three years old, so we’re very close and she’s very protective of me. After we moved into our current apartment, my boyfriend and I bought Mason to keep Gretel company. He was a rescue cat that had been previously returned after being adopted once, because he was “fresh”. He gave me the runaround when he first moved in, so I understand what it’s like to have a difficult cat.

It’s taken two years for them to both be comfortable with each other, but last week they fell asleep on the bed together (see Appendix D) and it was so beautiful. These cats have brought so much joy into my life, and I don’t know where I’d be without them. All these experiences, good and bad, have taught me that I never want to live without cats in my life.

Please feel free to direct message me if you want to talk about what taking care of cats on your own will mean for you. I am here for all your cat needs!

The Complete Guide to Living on Your Own (With Cats)

Phase 1: Your New Apartment

Before moving into your new home, follow these steps to make the process as comfortable as possible for your cats. You need to understand that they will be upset and act strange for the first few days, and this is absolutely normal and expected. Give them time- they’ll adjust.

1. Move the cats last. Move everything else you own into your new apartment, and get it set up as much as you can before moving your cats. Make sure there are plenty of places for them to hide that are easily accessible, like under your bed or in the back of a closet. Initially your cats will be very shell-shocked, and it will be easier for them to adjust if they smell familiar furniture and are able to find a secure place to hide.

2. Feliway. Buy yourself Feliway and spray it on walls and around doorways at your kitty’s eye level. I can’t tell you what it is or why it works (Science Side of Tumblr please explain), but your cats smell it and will feel much calmer. Feliway also helps when your cat starts peeing on everything, see Phase 2: Tantrums.

3. Moving your cats. If you have two cats, make sure that you move both cats at the same time. Even if they’re not the best of pals, a familiar face in a time of stress will soothe them. In the car ride they will cry, drool, pee, and sound like they’re dying. This is horrible to hear, but no that it’s only temporary. If you were in their situation you would act the same way! 

Hyperventilating. If you hear your cat start to hyperventilate, move them out of the carrier and comfort them immediately. I was transporting a cat with a high fever to the vet once and he started to do this, so I literally pulled over and drove with the cat in my lap the rest of the way. Once in my lap, he relaxed and started to breathe normally. The vet told me that I was lucky I did this, because the cat could’ve had a heart-attack. 

4. In the new apartment. Open your cat carrier and allow your cats to explore their new home at their own pace. Depending on your cat’s confidence, they might make a beeline for your bed and hide under it for the next two days. This is absolutely fine. Your cats may not want to eat or use the bathroom during these first few days, and this is normal. You often won’t eat if you’re stressed out, so understand that when they’re hungry, they’ll eat. If one of your cats is very upset, place their food and water bowl in the room they’re hiding in, so that they won’t feel threatened while they eat. 

5. Give it time. This could be less than a day or over a week, but your cat will come out from their hiding space of their own accord. They will walk around their new home and take everything in, and they’ll make themselves comfortable. Be there for your cat during this time, offering encouragement and love as they need it. It’s okay if they come out and retreat back to their safe hiding space, tell yourself that they will come out again.


Phase 2: Tantrums

Cats are mostly independent animals, but they do require lots of love and attention. Expect at least one or all of these tantrums to be thrown when you move them into your new home. Your cats are in a new environment that they are not wholly comfortable with, so it’s important to be patient and help them through this difficult time. 

1. Pooping. Your cat has an excellent sense of smell- they know where their litter box is. If they’re choosing to poop outside of the box, they are most likely looking for attention. Make sure that the poop has no blood in it (see Phase 4: Veterinarians + Common Diseases) and spend time making your cat feel special. This includes treats, playtime, combing, whatever they like best. 

2. Peeing A. Peeing is a form of scenting, which is essentially your cat being like “this is mine”. Your cats will probably do this a lot when you first move in, so make sure you have the proper cleaners ready (see Appendix A). Clean the spot thoroughly, and spray Feliway all over it. Your cat will smell the Feliway and think “Okay, I peed there already” and walk on. I’m not kidding. 

3. Peeing B. Peeing can also be an cry for attention, slightly different from scenting. Here’s how to tell the difference- does your cat only pee when you’re around? Typically this will only be done in areas that you frequent, like your bed or your couch. If so, then this is a cry for attention- see “Pooping”.

4. Peeing C. Is your cat declawed? I sure hope not, because that’s inhumane. But anyways, if it is… declawed cats require a different type of litter than the normal Tidy Cats brand. Call your local vet and consult with them about the best types of litter to use. 

5. Attacking. Is your cat attacking people/places/things? Get toys and play with them. Cats are evolved from fearsome predators, they need to be stimulated or they’ll get bored and start hunting whatever they can find. Here are some great toys to buy your cats so that they can “hunt” on their own, there’s something in there for every cat type.


Phase 3: A Place For Everyone

Jackson Galaxy is the Cat Guru, and you can find episodes of his show “My Cat From Hell” on Netflix. Whenever Jackson enters a home of a troublesome cat, he always looks at the environment in terms of how “cat-proof” it is. Your cat needs to have their own stuff, and whether this is a cardboard box or a $150 piece of cat furniture, it needs to be there. 

1. Bush vs. Tree dweller. I have a bush dweller and a tree dweller! Bush dwellers are the cats that like to hang out under tables and under beds, and they’re thought to be cats with less self-confidence. Tree dwellers like to climb and look down on their surroundings, reconnecting with their ancestors in the jungle. Cater your apartment based off of your cat’s needs. See Phase 6: Miscellaneous to learn more about different cat personalities. 

A word on bush dwellers. I was initially very upset to learn that Gretel is considered a low self-esteem cat. I kept trying to think of ways to make her more comfortable her surroundings, in the hopes that she would one day want to climb things and perch up high. Since getting Mason, she has slowly become a bush/tree dweller. She now climbs to the top rung of her cat furniture, and asks me to help her up on the kitchen table (it’s tall so she can’t jump). What I’m trying to say is that cats will gain confidence as they get more comfortable with their surroundings, and having a second and way more confident cat has helped her come into herself, even in her old age. So proud of my baby.

2. Cat furniture. I’m not going to lie to you, cat furniture is hella expensive. But it’s life-changing. Your cats recognize that its a piece of furniture for them, and they will run right over to it and begin exploring. If your cat is wary about climbing to the higher platforms or levels of the furniture, entice them with treats or a toy. The general rule is one piece of furniture per cat, because they will fight over them. If you have a very active cat, I’d recommend getting a multi-leveled piece. 

3. Cardboard boxes. The rumors are true- cats love cardboard boxes. Just open it up and leave it in the middle of the floor, and allow your cats to explore. If you’re not ready to drop $$$, place a warm blanket in the box and allow your cats to curl up. 

4. Windows. If you leave for work, leave your blinds open for your cats to peer out. If you don’t, they’ll peer out anyway and wreck your blinds. In the summer time it might seem like a nice idea to leave your windows partially open, but always make sure that your window screens are secure. If they’re not, add masking tape around the sides of the window until you can press on the screen and it doesn’t collapse.

5. Food and water. I like to keep a bowl of water in each room for the cats, and I refresh this daily. I like to add ice cubes in the summer so that the water isn’t that awful room temperature. If you feed your cats dry food, make sure that they’re drinking lots of water after eating. 

6. Litter box. Yeah, I know- it’s the worst part of being a cat owner. I keep mine in my hallway closet, and I leave the door partially open so that the cats can get in and out as they please. I’ve seen people with litter boxes in their bathrooms, their hallways, behind chairs in their living room, etc. The general rule is to have one more litter box than there is cat. I’m sorry, that’s crazy talk. I have a one bedroom apartment and I’m not having three litter boxes. One has worked fine for my babies, I just have to be vigilant about cleaning it. 

As far as choosing a cat litter brand, most cats are not picky. Some, however, are. Tidy Cats is expensive so I use whatever is on sale at CVS. I prefer scented because I have the litter box right by my front door. Find what works for you, but listen to your cat’s needs. 

Be wary of any brand of “lightweight” cat litter other than Tidy Cats. One time I bought Stop & Shop’s “Companion” lightweight litter and it hardened and stuck to the bottom of my litter box and I literally had to rehydrate it to remove it. DISGUSTING. 

7. Wall furniture. If you don’t have a lot of room on the floor of your apartment, consider putting up wall furniture for your cat. This can be anything from an expensive piece like this, or a simple wooden board for your cats to walk on. 

8. The floor is lava. Confident cats like to be up high on tables, window sills, cat furniture, etc. This is because back in their ancestral days, they had to peer down from the treetops to hunt their prey. Allow your cat this luxury, and try not to freak out if they walk on your kitchen counters or sit on your dining room table. Your cat is programmed to do this, the fact that your cat wants to be up high is a sign of confidence, a sign that your cat is comfortable with their surroundings. 


Phase 4: Veterinarians + Common Diseases

Your cat’s health is so important! There are lots of things you can do to maintain your cat’s health on your own (see Appendix B), but know that you will need to take one or both of your cats to the vet sometime this year. Remember to consult medical professionals if your cat is visibly ill. I am not a medical professional, but here are some of the things I’ve dealt with as a cat owner.

1. Hospitals vs. Doctors. My biggest expense as a cat owner is taking my babies to the vet. I have a Veterinary Hospital literally two minutes from my home, and Gretel hates the car so much that I always just take her there to get her to calm down. In general, hospitals are WAY more expensive than regular vet’s offices. Like, I’m talking over $100 difference. The expense is worth it for me, but it might not be for you. Find your closest vet office and put their number into your phone ASAP.

2. Making an appointment. If your cat is having a crisis, you can call during normal business hours and bring your cat in right then and there, but it’s going to cost you extra money. If your cat is not in imminent danger, call and make an appointment for the next day.

Theoretically, you’re supposed to bring your cat(s) or yearly check-ups and make sure they get all their vet shots. I’m gonna level with you- I don’t do this. I wish I could afford to do it, but I live paycheck to paycheck and can’t. You need to be able to take care of yourself, so if you’re poor like me, I’d advise saving vet visits for emergencies only. 

3. Vet insurance. Obviously- I do not have vet insurance. This means that I pay for all my vet visits out of pocket, and vet offices do not allow you to pay in installments, you have to pay all at once. My downstairs neighbor once had her cat held by a vet’s office because she didn’t have the money to pay for the vet bills. She had to get an emergency loan from her bank to be able to pay and get her cat released. Yikes. The one person I do know with pet insurance says that it saves her about 75% of her vet bill, but she’s a grown ass woman with a house. It’s okay if you don’t have vet insurance, there are still things you can do to improve your cat’s quality of life for reasonably cheap (See Appendix B).

3. Flea medication. Flea medication can be expensive, especially if you have two cats. Unfortunately, Advantage is the only medication that I have found effective. I’ve tried several different knock off brands, and while they worked, they didn’t last nearly as long as Advantage. I don’t worry about fleas that much in the winter, but I put it on my cats during the summer because there are lots of stray cats where I live.

4. Vomit. An occasional puke pile is nothing to be concerned about. There are lots of reasons why cats throw up, but 99% of them are digestion related. The worst part of puke is having to clean it up. As disgusting as it may be, the best way to clean up puke is to allow it to dry and to then clean it (see Appendix A). Lots of cats have food allergies (Mason, for example), so if your cat is throwing up multiple times in a week, change their diet (see Phase 5: Cat food).  If your cat throws up blood, take them to the vet immediately. 

5. Feline Respiratory Virus. Cats do not get colds like humans do, so be very wary if your cat has a runny nose, watery eye discharge, is sneezing or acting lethargic. These infections can kill cats if left untreated. If your cat is showing these symptoms, take them to the vet immediately. The vet will prescribe antibiotics that you will have to give your cat, and your cat should be feeling better within 24 hours. Once a cat gets an FRV, they are more susceptible to it. Cats can infect other cats, so keep your cats separated and give them separate food and water until your infected cat is visibly better. 

6. Bloody poop. Bloody poop (while disgusting) does not always signify illness. Sometimes it means that your cat is having trouble digesting, but other times it means that your cat has worms. Keep an eye on your cat’s poop, and if it’s still bloody after two additional days, take them to the vet and bring a sample of the poop with you. This stool sample will be tested by your vet, and if you don’t have one they will send you home and wait for you acquire one before testing anything.

7. Lumps. My cat Gretel currently has a lump on her face. I noticed it a couple months ago and took her to the vet. If your cat gets a lump suddenly, see if you can move the lump around with your fingers. If the lump feels solid and causes your cat pain, make an appointment ASAP. Gretel’s lump moves around freely and doesn’t cause her pain at all, so my vet told me not to worry about it. Cats grow non-cancerous tumors on their faces and bodies, as well as excesses of fatty tissue that cause bumps. Feeling a bump does not guarantee that your cat’s life is in danger.

8. Bottom line. Wondering if something is wrong with your cat? Ask yourself this simple question- Is your cat eating and drinking water? If your cat is not eating or drinking water, then something is wrong. Make an appointment and take them to the vet.


Phase 5: Cat Food

Spend some time researching different brands before deciding what to feed your cat. Here are some guidelines to help you.

1. Wet food vs. Dry food. It’s a scientifically acknowledged fact that wet food is much better for your cats than dry food. Unfortunately canned food can be up to three times as expensive per pound as dry food, and I can’t afford that on my budget. If you feed dry food, make sure that your cat is properly hydrated and drinking lots of water after they eat.

2. Junk food vs. Health food. Some cats are finicky eaters, mine are not. They do not care what type of food it is, they’re just happy to eat it. Meow Mix is super inexpensive and filling for cats, but it’s not healthy. It’s essentially like eating McDonalds every day. As a young adult, you probably can’t afford to spend large quantities of money on cat food. So compromise. Buy a bag of high quality “healthy” cat food, and a bag of cheap cat food, and give your cats a mixture of this.

3. Grain intolerance. Allergies are a real thing with cats. If your cat is having a hard time keeping food down, switch them to a grain free diet. I buy Rachel Ray cat food off of Amazon because Mason has a delicate stomach.

4. Proteins. Switch up the proteins in the food you’re feeding your cats. Spend a few months with salmon, then switch to chicken, then back to salmon, etc. I don’t remember why, but studies were done and this proved to be more healthy for cats.

5. How much food? Current studies say that cats should be feed about a half a cup of cat food per day. PER DAY. Cats also should have definitive feeding times, and should not be allowed to “graze” or eat all day. I feed my cats a cup of food in the morning (2 cats, half a cup each) and that’s all they get. One of the most common problems that cat owners have is over-feeding. 

6. Fast eaters. Mason has this problem where he gobbles down food super fast (he doesn’t even chew it half the time) and then throws up a few minutes later. You can buy special plates online that force cats to eat slowly like this one

7. What not to feed them. Check out this link. Also if your cat accidentally drinks antifreeze give them alcohol

8. Changing food. Remember that you can’t just feed your cat one food one day and a different food the next day. If you do, they’ll throw up. If you need to switch your cat’s food, do it gradually. Here’s how:

  • First day of switch: 95% old food, 5% new food
  • Second day: 75% old food, 25% new food
  • Third day: 75% old food, 25% new food
  • Fourth day: 50% of both foods
  • Fifth day: 50% of both foods
  • Sixth day: 25% old food, 75% new food
  • Seventh day: 25% old food, 75% new food
  • Eighth day: 5% old food, 95% new food
  • Ninth day: 5% old food, 95% new food 
  • 10th day: 100% new food!


Phase 6: Miscellaneous 

1. Cat types. I’m a big believer in the ASPCA feline-alities. ASPCA employees essentially give cats a personality test to see how they perform under stress. They have something wonderful to say about even the shyest of cats, it really puts everything in perspective. Check it out here. Points if you can guess my cat’s personality types based off what I’ve written here.

2. Bathing. Generally speaking, cats and water do not mix. I don’t bathe my cats because they don’t really get gross enough to require bathing. The one time I did try to bathe Gretel was an absolute disaster, so barring her overcoming her fear of water, I’m never going to do it again. She’s old and sleeps next to my head every night, so sometimes I have to help her clean up a bit. If your cat steps in poop or dirt or whatever, use baby wipes. 

3. “My Cat Doesn’t Like to Play”. Bullshit. All cats like to play, you just haven’t found the right toy. Mason responds to strings that are waved in circles above his head, squeaky toys, and things that are thrown so that he can run and “catch” his prey. Gretel likes crinkly things like candy wrappers, and will only chase a string if it’s dragged on the ground. Mess around and figure out what makes your cat tick. After playing your cat will:

  • Have a snack
  • Clean themselves
  • Take a nap

4. Reprimanding cats. I found a great post on Tumblr a year ago explaining this phenomenon, but I currently can’t find it, so I’m going to paraphrase. Essentially, cats don’t have great short-term memory, so you have to be careful when yelling at them. If your cat pees on your couch, and you don’t discover it until three hours later, yelling at your cat will accomplish absolutely nothing. They won’t understand why you’re upset, and they won’t understand what they did was wrong. You have to reprimand your cat’s either while they’re in the act of being naughty (i.e, peeing on the couch) or directly afterwards.

  • Flea medication (you can buy Advantage in bulk on Amazon)
  • Brush (brushing decreases the risk of hairballs, fleas, and your clothes looking like shit. It can also be a way to bond with your cat)
  • Toys (get an assortment like this one)
  • Supplements (if you have an old cat, check out elder cat supplements on Amazon)
  • Ear cleansers like Epiklean (Did you know that you’re supposed to clean your cat’s ears every month? I didn’t! Gretel had an ear infection because her ears hadn’t been cleaned in 15 years)
  • Baby wipes (Gretel is very old, and sometimes she has a poopy butt. I recommend baby wipes for elder cats)
  • Multi-purpose treats (buy treats that are beneficial for your cat’s health, like treats with calcium or treats that help with hairballs)

when he looks away

huge, huge thank you to by beta best friend for reading this, encouraging me to write more and actually post some of it; and of course @roxanncweasley and @jiilys, my writing idols, for unconciously inspiring me with their own fantastic work;

He’s all you notice at this point.

In class, when your not long ago ‘best friend’ shots a parky comment at him. He wants to talk back, you can see it. He wants to, he needs to defend himself, his friends, those like you. He can’t stand him, it’s clear as day. That vein on his neck is pulsing like crazy. His hands are fists now. He picks his head up and you gasp at the rage in his stare. You sees his eyes shot fast in your direction and in a second they’re soft again and it’s like he suddenly acknowledges he’s in a classroom with twenty other students, all watching him, all expecting the fight. He slowly unscrews his hands and flats them on the desk; they’re trembling. You sigh. His head is lowered again, Remus wispering something rapidly in his ear. He nods in approval, the corners of his mouth twitch. Mr Binns goes on. A few minutes later you catch his eye and, he smiles.

In the library, on a table in the opposite corner of the room, where they’re sitting, trying to dull their laughs as Madam Pince walks by, all staring at a piece of pegament. You can’t really tell from here but it seem like whatever’s on it is moving. Remus is extending a hand and shaking his with a tempered smile that reaches his eyes. Pettigrew is clapping him on the back, grin splattered all over his features. Black grabs his face and mockingly tries to kiss him. He laughs and pushes him away, a sly smile on his lips and she can almost hear him say ‘not here pads, there are people watching! I know I’m so charmingly handsome, but please contain your urges!’. His smile is bigger than his face as he shrugs and explains something to the rest, hands gesticulating as he speaks. There’s so much pride in his eyes he looks like he might just explode. He gases at you and stops talking what looks like midsentence. The others turn around to look at you; Remus waves, Black winks playfully and Pettigrew just shakes his head. His smile doesn’t leave his face as he takes one of Remus’s chocolate bars and throws it at you. You catch it the last second, look at him and smile back. As he returns his attention to the pergament you can swear you see reddness creeping its way towards his face.

On the pitch on a sunny Friday afternoon right after classes while he’s loosening his tie as the eight of you sit on the freshly cut grass, Marlene in Black’s, Sirius’s, he demands, lap. Dorcas pulls out two bottles of vodka her sister mailed her and takes a bold sip from one, trowing the other at Peter. Screw dinner, you think. Screw the rules. Soon everyone is laying in a big mess of tangled legs and arms and hair, laughing at everything and nothing at all, forgetting for a moment. The late april wind blows in his hair, making it even messier than it is, making it look like he’d just shagged, making you want to shag him but really you’re just drunk, you tell yourself. His glasses are crooked and dirty but his eyes are sparkling and his smile is lopsided and he looks like he’s drunk on pure liquid joy, no diluent. You look at his long delicate fingers, knuckles bloody from Tuesday when the Blacks’ family owl delivered Sirius a letter and his fist almost made a hole in the commor room wall. You look at his sneakers, covered in mud as if he’s been running in the Forbidden Forest for two nights straight. You look at his muscles under the rolled sleeves of his shirt, his tan skin, the purple and blue veins underneath. You look at his eyes. They’re looking too. Shit, you think, but his eyes don’t tear from yours and you can’t make yourself look away. He’s all you can see and you both don’t notice that Marlene and Sirius are long gone, probably in the now empty boy dorm doing Merlin knows what or that Mary and Dorcas are kissing and giggling unnoticed a few meters away or that Remus and Peter are now walking around the pitch trying to clear their heads and be at least a little bit responsible. No, all you notice is each other and the stars in his eyes and the flowers in you hair and your love. And sure, it is a little reckless and a little dangerous, and there really isn’t anything, but it’s okay cause you won’t remember it tomorrow morning, right? All of a sudden something bubles inside of you and your smile turns into laughter because how could i be so oblivious and there’s clearly something, there’s everything and you realise why your stomach is always in knots when he’s around and why your troat tightens when he gives you one of his shit eating grins and of course. Of course I’m in love! He’s starts laughing next to you on the hard ground too and your eyes fill themselves with tears as the sunset sky opens and swallows you both.

In the common room, in the little hours, when even the wind is silent, the fireplace is long cold and you’re sitting alone in the armchair next to the window, trembling, thinking how fucked up the world truly is. You hear his tiptoes on the old stone stairs of his dormitory carrying the history of so many other lives before yours. He yawns and stretches his lean arms over his head, but you don’t turn around. You hope he won’t notice you there, that he’ll simply get his forgotten charms essay from the table near the fireplace and go back to bed. ‘Lily!’ you hear him inhale shortly and then… he’s gone. You want him to be but you can’t help feel a little dissapointed after all. You’ve told yourself so many times not to think abot him that way, to accept it’s pointless, that he doesn’t love you anymore, and even if he did what’s the point, it would never work out, not now. But it’s still hard and you know it will always be. You feel a blanket around your shoulders and you abruptly turn around to face him. He’s looking down at you with worry in his eyes and a line between furrowed brows. You open your mouth to say something, anything. ‘Don’t.’ He’s wispering. ‘You don’t have to explain. I know.’ He sighs and sits on the armrest, looking out of the window. You turn back towards it and lean your head on his arm. ‘When did everything become so complicated.’ It’s not a question. More of a statement, an unheard plead for things to go back the way they were, to normal. He signs again, harder this time, louder. He seeks your green, green eyes, stares deep into them, almost like he’s at loss of words. Almost like he’s lost himself in them.

You’re breathless.

Genre: Smut // Fluff // Slight Angst

Pairing: Byun Baekhyun x Reader

Mobile Masterlist | Request


It was around 3am when you woke up in a cold sweat. Your body was drenched and to make matters worse Baekhyun was sleeping right next to you.

He was facing the wall so you couldn’t see his face. You’ve learned that over the years Baekhyun had been a deep sleeper. With the way his chest rose and fell he definitely was out cold.

anonymous asked:

Listen... I didn't even ship yoonseok for the longest time, I was a Yoonmin shipper. But eventually it hit the point that they shipped themselves harder than I could ship Yoonmin and I was like "Okay y'all" and the more I thought about it, the more sense it made??? They seem to be each other's foils- it's really interesting to see how they interact with one another. Hobi is sunshine, but he's not over the top in his sunshine behavior. Well actually yeah he is

(cont from Sunshine Hobi), there’s definitely an underlying sadness to him. Yoongi is also someone who used to repress his emotions a lot and I really hope that they help each other out when it comes to emotional support. Hoseok makes Yoongi feel like it’s okay for him to speak, and Yoongi gives Hoseok space to be a little more subdued and honest (and also does his absolute best to boost his self esteem like hello regardless of whether something’s happening or not- couple goals)

!!! yes to everything. also i’d like to add a few things from myself. BTS FM 06.13:

HS: “You know what, I was always this bright and happy.”

YG: “I can spill a story now. When we were all trainees, I’ve never seen someone that depressed.“ 

there’s so much more to hoseok than his bright exterior.. people aren’t two dimensional

yoongi said that being around hoseok gives him energy but i think sometimes it works the other way too. sometimes yoongi is the energetic one

and don’t forget that iconic sope vlive where yoongi was making hoseok laugh for 25 minutes 👨‍❤️‍👨 

Blackpink as types of bffs

Jennie: the mom friend. Will always make sure you got enough food on your plate. Might appear cold sometimes but she lowkey cares a lot for you. Will give you a judging bitch face when you crack lame jokes even though she secretly finds them funny.

Jisoo: dinner dates. So many of them. Any time of the day. “I’m kinda hungry let’s grab some food I heard there’s this new Italian restaurant?” Stare contests that end in weird grimaces. “You don’t think I can eat 50 chicken wings ? OH LEMme show you” -“no jisoo don’t” always protect this smol bean okay.

Rosé: might sing 24/7 when you’re hanging out but you gotta appreciate it okay I mean your ears will probably thank you. Lots of outdoor activities like going to the amusement park or picnicking. Also lots of random jokes that are actually funny.

Lisa: idk but I think of playing mario kart. Or like games in general. Lots of games when being rather at home, enjoying a lazy day with pizza, blankets, pillows and netflix. And mario kart. Deep conversations about life and questions like “are hotdogs sandwiches?”

2ps Reactions To S/O Wanting Kids

2p America: “You really want a mini me running around here, huh??” He would laugh about it, but certainly wouldn’t be against it.

2p England: “Oh, poppet! I’d love to, if you want to, but-” He would be all for it, very excited, but also very worried. What if something goes wrong? What if he isn’t the best father? He doubts everything that could happen.

2p China: Cue nervous laughter and a lot of stuttering. As much as he would like kids, he’d find the whole thing to be kind of difficult. He’s not the most consistent person, let alone a consistent father.

2p France: “….” He wouldn’t really want a kid. He feels like he messed up raising Matt, and he doesn’t want to mess up again.

2p Russia: “I see. You really want a child?” He would make sure that it was truly okay with it. He’d be somewhere in the middle, as the idea would put him off for a little bit, but if you give him time he will warm up to the idea of having a child.

2p Canada: “You sure..?” “…Okay.” He’s wanted kids before, but never asked. He wants to prove to himself that he can take care of a child, better than he thought his own father did.

2p Italy: “Oh,bella,I don’t see why not… But why?” He’d be okay with it, but would want a specific reason as to why you wanted to have a child with him.

2p Germany: He’d give you a big hug immediately. “Hey, of course! I mean, they’re basically a little bundle of insomnia, but that’s not so bad!” He’d love to have a child with you, as for him it shows him just how much you do love him.

2p Japan: “Hm…” He wouldn’t decide immediately, not really liking the idea a whole lot. Though he isn’t completely against it, just let him think about it.

2p Romano: Cue dramatic gasp. “Oh bella, of course!!” He’d be all for it, already making up plans for the baby. Name, baby shower, room, whatever; he’ll have it done in no time.

2p Austria: “Oh, darling, of course~, I was wondering when you’d ask~” He has been wanting kids for a while now, as it kind of says to him that now there’s no way that you’d leave him.

2p Prussia: “W-What? Are you sure? I don’t… Think that I’d be the best father, but…” As much as he would love children, he doubts that he’ll be the best he can be for his child, so is mostly just worried.

Shtpost #2

newsflash!!!:


EXO is currently taking over my life. 


(i hear distant groans of agreement don’t lie i know we all are being dominated by a particular south korean family that sing and dance and do crazy stuff)


I wake up and the first thing I instinctively do is literally open my phone (no lie) and go on Instagram and search up chanbaek crap (hands up if you follow chanbaek_sister or chanbaek_idclub ayyyyy) because I am that fking deprived of EXO and also because international fan sTrugGLEs. 


Oh, i also heard rion (the ‘fan’ of suho who is always making him feel uncomfortable and exos disgsuted bc she did unspeakable things while obsessing over junmyeon) attended the manila concert.. yikes (i dont want this post to be negative so let’s just stop here and wish for. suho’s well-being) and then something else like an anti (i’m not going to spread names) bringing plush penguin toys to the concert and stuffing rocks inside them with the intention of throwing them at exo??? like, you’re just become absolutely petty and rude and dumb and i kind of want to laugh at these ‘fans’ bc they’re so… immature and sad (but hey, to everyone reading this, bts and exo and in fact, all kpop groups, are close-knit friends. they know what it’s like to have to practice for crap all day and they respect each other. i just want everyone to be positive and love because that’s how. we can end these disputes. i hate having to see ‘armys are just petty 13 y/o babies hating on exo’ or ‘exols are so loud and annoying don’t they get tired of screaming’ crap all the time on my feed. it wasn’t like this before. and we were a family once, we can be a family again. it’s not that hard. 


OKAY ENOUGH OF THE NEGATIVITY LET’S GET TO THE GOOD STUFF, SHALL WE? ;)))))) 


ok so PHILLIPINE FANS (and fans who afforded the tickets in general lol noT ME THEN!) HOW WAS THE SECOND MANILA CONCERT, GUYS? APPARENTLY LOTS OF PEOPLE DON’T STAN CY AT FIRST BUT WHEN THEY SEE HIM IN PERSON HE LITERALLY BATTLES EVERYONE IN YOUR BIAS LIST AND CONQUERS THE WORLD Like legit, I’m not kidding. This is why I ship ChanBaek ;; (kms).


Who wouldn’t like these two beautiful beans?

Chanyeol loves Baekhyun so much that Baekhyun loves him back I-

And did anyone else notice that for their special stage Baekhyun and Chanyeol had MATCHING BRACELETS????!!!!?!?! I had to rewatch the stage because of a chanbaek fanvid (yes, that’s how I found most of my moments despite being a 2015-current fan) and I literally had to pause,


sit back,


look again,


lean closer,


and just:

me: bish what?

like, hello?

*asian voice* what, the hell?


okay please please please tell me they went on a little secret “boyfriends-that-do-a-lot-of-romantic-stuff-but-it-isn’t-platonic-or-anything” nights’ out and got each other bracelets like the ones in scarlet heart ryeo shkhsdkufhjh i love how they’re so intimate and lovely with each other *insert guttural noises*

another thing i realized is whenever baekhyun smiles or does something, chanyeol always seems to feel it and just copy his (boyfriend’s) best friend bandmate’s actions i stg they’re sOULMATES~~~

also, i’ve noticed that baekhyun’s movements are always so soft and gentle but if you notice, during concerts he’d always go the extra mile and have the perfect facial expression, hand gestures, everything, so that he’d look smooth af (probs why some call him daddy…(please don’t)) so when he’s standing beside this giant of a dork, aka the endorser of masks, baek always seems to small and cy always needs to protect him (although they probably hit each other and play lol all weekend)

i mean, just look:

you have their ridiculously weird side…

you also have their romantic yet fluffy side

squeal!!! 

but then you get this “???” aka “error 404?”

pcy…your hands. hands. hands to yourself, please. ( although i’m lowkey wishing that they had more skinship ;-;)

pcy where are your HANDS!! keep the awards pg-13 please!

(but baekhyun smirked so i actually have no idea what they are anymore hahahaha)

yeah so that was my rant because i just realized how. much i. love . exo . and chanyeol and baekhyun and exo in general like SEHUN, the baby that has a lot of respect, XIUMIN, the kind-hearted hyung who loves everyone and just wants to make everyone get comfortable, SUHO, the leader who never gives up and always laughs because he loves his members so much, KAI, the hardworking second maknae with the most contagious laugh ever (personal opinion), CHEN, the lowkey most observant vocal range god that everyone loves, LAY, the one who is selfless, innocent, and willing to try new things, D.O., our precious squishy bean who has the smoothest voice and the chillest attitude. EXO is such an important part of my life that I almost wish that I had never met them (it’s a good thing to think, almost like when the water is so cold it numbs you and you think it feels hot) 


So, kudos to all the exo fans who supported exo and stayed together no matter what happened because it’s only thanks to. you that i can be so blessed like this. love ya~

30 Days of Call the Midwife

Day 9: Worst Story 

Patrick, throughout the entirety of series 3

Patrick throughout all of series 3 will always be the worst™ story for me. I understand that the marriage was new for Patrick and Shelagh in series 3, but that doesn’t excuse Patrick being a downright ass. Shelagh put a lot on the line to marry him, and she did not deserve to be berated and talked down by her husband. Patrick didn’t treat her as an equal, and obviously the feminist in me was not okay with that, but also like Shelagh was trying her best to adjust to her new life and balance being a wife and stepmum. Ugh the way that he talks to her throughout this series just annoys me. Additionally, Shelagh was mourning the child she would never have, which I imagine is a pretty shitty thing to be dealing with, and Patrick tried to brush it off. Then, Patrick took parenting into his own hands, undermining Shelagh’s wishes. Like okay, I know this happens a lot with parenting, but STILL. Timothy may not be her blood relative, but her opinions are still valid. Shelagh was just trying to be the best stepmum she could, and Patrick did not respect that. Also, I WILL NEVER BE OKAY WITH A HUSBAND WHO WAGS HIS FINGER AT HIS WIFE. This is my most hated scene of all of Call the Midwife. I don’t care what you’re saying, no one deserves that, especially Shelagh. Also, Patrick made Shelagh feel badly about a lot of things that he was in the wrong for, and yet she still apologized, which is like one of my biggest pet peeves. And one last thing, I will never be okay with the fact that Patrick felt the need to tell her that “TB is a serious illness.” Like Patrick, SHE KNOWS. She was not only an extremely experienced nurse and midwife, but she also like, had the illness. I’m not even going to talk about the way he acted during the adoption process because that’s a story for another day. Okay this turned out be a rant and I didn’t plan that but yeah… Patrick, DO BETTER.

When someone knocks on your bedroom door you jump slightly before calling out to tell them to come in. 


As the door opens, you turn to find your older brother Alexander standing in the doorway. After not seeing him for a couple of months while he’s been away at college you couldn’t be more excited to see him.

"Alex!” You exclaim as you get up from you spot at the desk, quickly crossing the distance between you and wrapping your arms around your brother.

“Hey Y/N” he says, returning the hug and holding you tight. With your arms around his middle you notice how he’s lost weight and glancing at his face you notice just how dark the circles under his eyes are.

“I see you’ve been working yourself to death” you tease, poking his side as you both pull out of the hug.

Hello, folks! Today I want to talk to you about my favorite characters from Hamilton!

Okay, so let’s start with Angelica. I already told you that she’s my favorite female character from this musical. I’ve fallen in love the moment I first saw her. She is incredibly strong-willed and decisive character. That’s the person I’ve always wanted to be. Seems like she knows what she really wants but she’s doing something for the good of others instead. I think you have to be morally really strong person to sacrifice your own happiness for somebody. And I really like that in the musical they showed us Angelica is much more than a sister of main character’s wife. And she deserves a lot better than what she got in the end.

Next! I really like Madison, bc he’s neither good nor bad character. I mean, He’s doing his job and he wants other people to do their job so everything will be okay in his country. That’s all! Also, he looks like that kind of people, who do their best on their job but when they came home they enjoy domestic life. Like delicious dinner, a cup of tea or hot chocolate. Then they just go to bed and put blankets up. So Madison is just like “I’m so happy that Hamilton and Tomas didn’t kill each other today. What a good day”. And that’s all he needs to be happy!

Alexander is the most attractive character in the musical not only bc he’s the main character. But bc he’s so curious and he has more determination than anyone I know! He never does what other people think is right, but he does what HE thinks is right. And that’s amazing! Alex listens to no one and doing what he wants. Of course, he has his own objectives, for example, seek to leave something behind that’s worth something, and it’s okay! Many people are seeking to that! Even if it hurts his friends and family. Maybe it’s not right, maybe it’s unfair, but who are we to judge him? He just does what he thinks is right.

And the last one is… Charles Lee! I know that some people say that he’s a jerk and… He IS a jerk! But he is my favorite jerk! To be honest, I don’t really know why I even like him, haha. Maybe bc Jon Rua starred as Lee /and I love Jon Rua as hell bc he dances well and I like how he looks like and his voice is so cute/… His voice! Yeah, I really like how he sounds like in the musical, I mean, he’s acting so real. And this fear, selfishness, and disgust in his voice are SO REAL. I know that things he was doing wasn’t right and he’s a self-obsessed coward, but who said people should like only good characters or great and cool antagonists? In other words, I like Lee bc he’s so real person even though he’s a jerk.

And well, in summary, I like how every character looks like, and I like their voices, and I have so many headcanons about them that make me love this characters even more!

P.S. So appreciate that somebody read this post to the very end! If so, you should know that you’re cinnamon rolls and not even burnt! I know it was hard to read this post bc of my English, so thank you!

Ideal Type - BTS

Request: can you do bts ideal type in your opinion please? (if you do this type of question, its okay if you dont(: )

A/N: So obviously this is biased, but I did incorporate things that they actually have said they like in a girl. Also, sorry, this is assuming they all like girls.


^From some Japanese magazine that interviewed BTS I think

Taehyung:

Taehyung’s ideal type is someone who can be his best friend as well as his girlfriend. He has said before he wants someone who ‘only loves him’ and ‘has a lot of cuteness inside’. He would really appreciate a girl who takes good care of him and surprises him, someone who is always interesting and won’t judge him and will always support him.

Originally posted by hellosarang

Jimin:

Jimin really likes girls who are cute, inside and out. He has also stated before he likes girls who are shorter than him and who have a good personality. Jimin would totally be the type to be into couple outfits and couple things. He’s so cheesy and romantic, you guys would be that ‘sickeningly sweet couple’.

Originally posted by suga-com

Namjoon:

An important characteristic for Namjoon looks for is someone he can relate to and confide in, someone he can have deep philosophical conversations with and who will give their honest opinion. Ya boi also likes sexy girls, but who are also smart and who have similar interests. He has said before he thinks pale and tall girls are charming (5’6”+) (165+ cm) and who ‘look good in a white t-shirt, skinny jeans, and red converse’.

Originally posted by jinkooks

Jin:

Jin’s ideal type is a feminine woman. Someone who would ‘make a good wife’ as he put it. It is also very important that she is a good cook, for obvious reasons. His girl must also be a good person, kind and caring, as well as fun and honest. (Jin is so underrated to be honest, he needs a woman who will treat him right and love him for him.)

Originally posted by kths

Jungkook:

Just like Jin, Jungkook wants a girlfriend who is nice, will take care of him, is good at cooking and who will make a good wife. He has also said he likes girls who have nice legs and who are smart. (The girl in his picture looks depressed more than any of these characteristics.)

Originally posted by comfyjimin

Yoongi:

So, there is a lot of controversy about if Yoongi is bi or not, I don’t know if he is or not to be honest, but he is always talking about girls being his ideal type (not like he has a choice). Yoongi really does not have many qualities he deems as his ideal type’s. He doesn’t care about height or weight (nor does Taehyung). She must also have a similar style to him though, swag, and must like hip-hop and his music. She needs to be honest and someone who can serve as his motivation.

Originally posted by jinkooks

Hoseok:

Just like Taehyung, Hoseok wants a girl who will ‘love only him’. He has also said she needs to be a good cook and ‘think about him a lot’. He also wants a girl who is girlish and has a good sense of humor like him. Someone who will always give him attention and is willing to receive his sunshine love 24/7.

I don't really know why but I think Tae ships Jikook like a lot? Okay, Tae is Jimin's soulmate and JungKook's best friend (or whatever you want to call their precious relationship) but sometimes when the three of them are alone Tae is very smiley watching them or it happens things like Tae throwing them onto cell together... Also he has said some weird things like "they are having fun alone without me", he totally knows something and he is truly enjoying it

I think Tae would be extremely supportive. He wants everyone he loves to be happy. I don’t know if it’s just coincidence but there have been a few times recently where it seems like Tae is encouraging the jikook but that might just be us being crazy lol

My thoughts about the new boruto episode (without spoilers)

Welp I already decided that I like Metal (his name is stupid though :’D). I also like Shikadai but thats mostly because he recembels Shikamaru a lot (I hope we will see him mature) and I freaking adore Inochi

BUT Shino are you serious? You let this kids work on the stonehead of the Hokage? Whos Idea was that? Its not like you need to know a ton of things before actually doing this crap. (Also what kind of pranks did you pull Shino?I really wanna know.)

Temari for the win! She still is scary :D

… okay This thing with getting possessed. I’m really interested how they will explain it later …. also Shikadai …

he comes up with the best strategies! That made me laugh :D

I take back what I said about liking Shikadai because of his father XD … and I also have to say: Metal you are freaking adorable! Maybe its because both of you got the eyes from your mothers.

I would have loved to see Lee and Tenten though :(
