Kravitz stopped, and stared, his mouth open and gaping like a fish. Out of all the thoughts swirling in his head, out of all the things his heart was bursting to say, he blurted, “You closed early.

no romance fic got any right to own my aromantic ass like this but here we are. From “when I think of you (flowers grow out of my grave)” by @phantomsteed, a Taakitz florist/mortician AU which is wonderful and heartwarming and funny all the way through! Please check it out!

Hey Jon! I hope you're well. I was just wondering if you ever share progress photos in the form of before/after. Would love to see all the progress you've made! You're always doing amazing things, keep it up :)

Thanks Anon :) You are so kind! 

I need to do some full body progress pictures soon but here is pretty close. 

The first picture was my highest weight. It was somewhere over 475… probably close to 500. The second one was right around 335. When I get to 325, I will try to replicate the first picture for a better comparison. 


Hey everyone!

Sorry for no update this week, school is kicking my ASS. Also, there will be no update next week, since I will be in Chicago on a school trip. On a different, higher note-

Only four followers away from 2000!!

HOT FUCKING DAMN. Please tell me there are other eddsworld askblogs with 2000+ followers!! I don’t think I’ll survive if this little old thing is the “most popular askblog” (all askblogs are great!)

Anywho, I was wondering, when the 2000 milestone hits, what do you guys want to do as celebration? I’ll give you three choices:

-Fanfiction of your choosing (one for each request, even if the request is the same, but only one per person) for me to write

-Free, complete art (You would be tagged in it, and it will be posted on my main blog and reblogged here)

-Mod Applications re-opened (Because quite a few people want to apply as a mod!! It’s a tricky job, you have to be pushy with me because i love ALL IDEAS DONT BE AFRAID OF SHARING IDEAS)

It’ll be a vote, and if there’s no winning choice, or no one votes on it, I’ll just draw a small picture for the blog, probably redo the background/icon, and continue with the story. Either way, it will be done in a week or so when I actually have free time.

Thank you for reading this!! Sorry there’s no “read more”, since I’m typing this on mobile. Have a nice time of day!!

Don’t Fear the Reaper Chapter 35: The Truth

Sam Winchester x Reader

1450 Words

Chapter Summary: After being hurt and confused by Sam, he finally admits something is wrong.

Story Summary: You are a reaper, actually one of Death’s favorites.  You’ve been following the story of the Winchesters for a while, staying out of sight, never letting them see you. You slowly fall in love with Sam, even though he doesn’t know you exist. But that all changes one day. Set in Season 5

Catch Up Here: Masterpost

“Why isn’t my spell working on either of you!” Veritas, the goddess of truth screamed at you and Sam. Both you and Dean were staring Sam’s way, wondering the same thing.

“Well, you see, I used to be a Reaper. So that’s probably the reason.” You said calmly, but it only pissed her off more.

Sighing, you thought back to the last couple of days. Ever since Sam and his grandpa had saved Dean from becoming a Vampire, things had not stopped spiraling down. Catching wind of another hunt, Dean had jumped on it, while keeping a careful eye on his brother. Now, here you were, tied up by a Goddess, who wanted to cut your tongue out, and slowly munch on your body.

Sharks were the only thing I cared about after ponies stopped being the only thing I cared about, probably between the ages of 6 and 11, give or take, when horses came back and were then usurped by dragons.

But all that shark knowledge is still floating around in my brain

Like people will show me a picture of a weird shark and unless it was discovered in the last decade, I’m always quietly like ‘you fool. I’ve already been here’

I still love sharks, but it isn’t as all-encompassing anymore.

Also if you were wondering, dragons were replaced by corvids, and they in turn gave way to snow leopards.

(( I apologize for the sudden disappearance and lack of overall activity. There’s been a massive family emergency and it’s requiring all of my attention at present, though I do hope to get back into things when this all passes.

To those that have messaged me through here and Skype, I’ll try my hardest to reply these next few days and catch up with you! I’m really sorry about all this but I’ll do what’s needed to make up for it as soon as I’m able. Thank you so much for your concern and patience, you all have been absolutely wonderful. (: ))

I think the worst thing that fandom culture and the increasing acknowledgement of fandom culture from creators has wrought is this

incredible amount of entitlement that people in said fandoms get like

just because creators know something is a thing in a fandom doesn’t mean they have to do it or else they hate their fans. It’s a consistent thing I’m seeing more and more in fandoms and it’s getting worse. Like all the steven universe garbage that’s happened over that show’s run and now overwatch like

people are wishing other people dead because a robot ninja and an angel woman are dating. and there are people who are legit horrified at the sheer concept of characters being straight and I’m just sat here wondering how they can possibly tolerate real life.

the fact that people get so entrenched in what they perceive as author approval when their ships and headcanons aren’t immediately shut down, despite said author interacting with the fanbase, that their mental health deteriorates when something contradictory is even hinted at is just sickening like

I just went on twitter and saw people legitimately wanting to kill a man on the overwatch team because of gency and like

its. not. yours.

you do not own overwatch. you do not own steven universe. you do not own anything you’re fandoming so hard over. rebecca sugar could tomorrow have pearl confess her love to renaldo and the overwatch team could make torbjornXpharah and both of them would be canon because it’s THEIR CREATION AND THEY DECIDE WHAT HAPPENS.

THEY get to decide what to do with it. Not you. It is NOT YOURS.

I absolutely think fandom/tumblr culture has led to more death threats and harassment than any other thing on the internet and I think if creators want to avoid it, the best way is to just stop acknowledging the fandoms. Because they’ll twist whatever they can get their filthy hands on so they can shit on other people and never feel remorse or grow as people because they’re doing it to be “progressive”

So Nazis.

Here’s the thing that I don’t get.

Indiana Jones. Great character, hates Nazis. Punches and kills his way through them. Still loved by all. 

Everyone loves Batman! Doesn’t like Nazis. 

Wonder Woman, showing people how it’s done. 

Even the villains don’t tolerate Nazis! 

Like, the Joker is seen as one of the most notorious villains in the DC-verse, and he just is about to beat the shit out of the Red Skull. 

More examples: 

And just the sheer amount of times Captain America, literally a character to signify the freedom of the US of fucking A, has punched Nazis is bordering the line of excessive. 

So all of this media ranging from different decades and companies have all endorsed Nazi punching. However, as soon as this happens:

Everyone loses their shit! “Violence begets violence!” “That isn’t the way to do it” “How dare he attack that man!” “Don’t put out fire with fire!” “You’re just as bad as them if you’re violent!” 

But here’s the thing. It interrupts their platform. It shows that they are not invincible. It shows that they are not protected. It shows that they are going to be held accountable for their spouts of hate disguised as freedom of speech. It shows that there are consequences for their words. 

I’m not saying that I’m going to seek out Nazis just to punch them, but I’m not going to stop anyone who’s doing it either. 

Does art imitate life or does life imitate art? Either way, we should be punching more Nazis.

“I’VE BEEN WONDERING IF YOU SECRETLY WANT TO QUIT.” “JUST STAND BY ME.” This here was what got me to tears, because it was actually what we all expected, yuri’s trust, yuri’s insecurities, yuri’s fears everything was STILL THERE, yuri was not magically cured when Victor appeared in his life, he started worrying about other things, he couldn’t believe all that new foud happiness was there to stay, he couldn’t. He had all those new coflicted feelings inside of him, and didn’t dare talk about them. THE FEAR OF VICTOR LEAVING, OF BEING LEFT BEHIND, OF DAMAGING VICTOR’S REPUTATION, OR JUST NOT BEING UP TO HIS STANDARS, IT WAS ALL INSIDE HIM, THIS WHOLE TIME.

What If...?

I don’t usually like to come up with theories myself, but I was wondering about the scene in Episode 10 when all of the skaters were walking towards the ice rink and the intense “build-up” music was playing in the background. 

The writers really like doing that subtle foreshadowing thing, so what if the way they’re ordered here is correlated to their upcoming ranking? 

JJ gets sixth. Makes sense at this point, since he suffered a huge blow during his last skate, and I’m not sure that he can make up the points now. (Sorry JJ)

Chris gets 5th. Maybe that mysterious suited guy (the one who “comes too early” (yeah nice subtlety writers)) will have something to do with his performance? The man seems like an extremely random character to throw in last moment, and the implications almost make it seem like he’s Chris’s lover. Maybe something will happen between them that messes with Chris’s performance?

OR, MORE LIKELY, Chris may just end up losing the motivation he once had while he was competing with Victor. It’s said multiple times that they tend to thrive off of one another, and if Victor isn’t there, maybe his will to fight will diminish. 

Otabek gets 4th. We still haven’t seen his free skate, and we still don’t know much about him, but they certainly haven’t built him up as much as the other skaters (at least in my opinion). So honestly, I can’t really see him coming in on the podium. Frankly, if he does, I think a lot of people would be disappointed, since he seems to exist as a device (I’M SORRY I STILL LOVE YOU) for Yuri’s development. 

Phichit gets 3rd. Personally, I would just love to see him next to Yuuri - they’ve shown us how long these two have been together as friends, and now that we’ve seen more of Phichit’s backstory (PRECIOUS BBY), this seems more likely. Of course, this correlates with my HAMSTER META THEORY where phichit is gripping his “bronze” hamster: (I KNOW I’M FCKN PATHETIC OK)

http://thechainuser.tumblr.com/post/154642671639/phichitsbronze-hamster

Yurio comes in second. It would make sense considering he just broke Viktor’s world record. I’m almost 100% certain that this angry muffin isn’t going to get gold, because he’s simply too young and he’ll have plenty of opportunities to try and receive it in the future, as opposed to Yuuri or Chris, who are much older. And then, finally…

Yuuri takes the gold with a perfect performance of Yuri on Ice! It would make sense, since he’s flubbed his free skate every single time we’ve seen it (not usually to a huge extent, but enough). If it’s true that he and Victor’s story (whether it be as coach/student or otherwise) is coming to a close, and is no longer developing, I’m guessing this means that Yuri on Ice is going to be finally complete, and he’ll pull off his best performance yet. 

I didn’t really think much of this scene until they threw this at us again in the final OP in the same order, starting with JJ and ending with Yuuri.

So, really, I wonder if the writers are trying to point something out to us? Or maybe I’m just over-analyzing like everyone else haha.

Feminism is not here to dictate to you. It’s not prescriptive, it’s not dogmatic. All we are here to do is give you a choice. If you want to run for Prime Minister, you can. If you don’t, that’s wonderful, too. Shave your armpits, don’t shave them, wear flats one day, heels the next. These things are so irrelevant and surface to what it is all really about, and I wish people wouldn’t get caught up in that. We want to empower women to do exactly what they want, to be true to themselves, to have the opportunities to develop. Women should feel free. There is no typical feminist, there is nothing anywhere that says you have to meet a certain set of criteria.
