and lots of other cool people

to a lot of goths “nu goth” is like a bad word. But i think the style has come a long way since 2010, you can do a lot more with it now. To me goth is music and a state of mind, its a subculture and its a lot more than just fashion, fashion is just one great part of it. I dont think you need to dress goth to appreciate it so i dont like when other goths hate on nu goth. I think nu goth is the best addition to goth fashion that we’ve had in a long time and ive seen people mix it up and really make it their own. Nu goth can look cool but also be casual. It can be comfortable and a way for people to be able to express their love for goth in places that they cant always dress up, like the work place. i personally like to blend aspects of nu goth style with 80′s traditional goth style. i know plenty of goths who dress nu goth who appreciate the subculture and its music so i really hope that one day, nu goth wont be so looked down upon by other members of the goth community.

Something fans need to get through their heads.

Just because you don’t find something cool anymore, doesn’t mean other people can’t enjoy it.
The idea that if something isn’t ‘popular’ it shouldn’t be used/done has always been nonsense. So what if your friend is still playing Pokemon X and Y when Ultra Sun and Moon is coming out?

Besides!! Mark!! is!! all!! about!! playing!! indie!! games!! Do you know how they become popular??? A LOT of people play them, and some people watch slightly famous people play them!! They’re not guaranteed to sell millions of copies, because they’re not being highly advertised on T.V. or typically even sold at regular stores!!

Remember that Tyler is a fucking human being and allowed to enjoy whatever the fuck he wants.

Is it hurting you? Has he done something to upset you? No? Then shut the hell up.

If he’s not hurting himself or others, then why does it matter what he’s doing? He tried sharing something he found exciting with his fans, only for them to show a truly ugly side of the fandom. I’m sure most of them aren’t on tumblr, but I had to put my two cents in.

For @loraliah @mysmekitten!!!

When it comes to shipping, you have to go based off of a person’s needs and personality. I am basing this off of what I know of you, and some inferences, so I hope it turns out to your liking.

I would ship you with… Vanderwood!

I know you love Saeran a lot, and relate a lot to him, but having two people together with troubled pasts can create a lot of friction. While you can understand each other’s feelings, it will constantly be a battle between who needs comfort and who needs space, and what happens when those needs arise simultaneously? Saeran is someone who definitely be a good friend, and someone you sit next to in group therapy.

Jumin’s cool logic and busy schedule would leave you feeling neglected sometimes. Zen’s fame and schedule would often make you feel as if you have to compete for his attention. Yoosung’s inexperience could lead to miscommunication and unresolved conflicts. Jaehee’s own internal conflicts can cause her to close off if she feels too pressured, which doesn’t help anyone in the relationship. Seven, though he is a close second, would allow himself to whither as he attempts to help you through any crisis. If allowed to go too far, then the scenario could end up similar to V and Rika.

Vanderwood is a healthy balance of logic and emotion. In the game, we see him clearly choose to protect the people he knows and trusts, choosing to do the right thing. He has morals, though he fights with them sometimes. It’s clear that he can come to safe and healthy conclusions for the both of you.

He is understanding to those days when you need to stay in bed. Without a thought, he makes sure you shower and change into some comfy clothes. While you do that, the sheets are changed and the pillows are fluffed. He tucks you in and kisses your forehead, happy to see you snuggle down. He hunts down your kittens and plops them in bed so you’re not alone. He makes sure your phone and ipod are charged, video games and movies set to go with the flip of a button. He understands there are some days you just need to rest and recenter yourself.

He also realizes the value of pushing you sometimes. Instead of allowing to wallow around, he asks you to complete small tasks. Sometimes it is as simple as cooking yourself a meal without using the microwave; other times the two of you spend the day jamming to the radio while cleaning the house from top to bottom. He only calls it a day when you pass his inspection. Then there are the days he knows he has to get you to leave the house.

You may whine and protest, but he insists anyway. Sometimes he merely goes witb you to the corner store for an ice cream or a Slurpee. It’s hot out and he wants to reward you for showing your beautiful face to the sun. Other days he asks you to accompany him to grocery shop. He knows the atmosphere can be stressful, but with him by your side, he helps you through. If you do particularly well, he allows you to get some of your favorite snacks.

When you have panic or anxiety attacks, he can put himself aside enough to calm you down and talk you through it. His voice is low and steady as he holds you, getting you to coy his breaths and listen to his heartbeat. If you ever feel threatened, he will stand up for you, fight for and protect you without a second thought. This also leads him to encourage you to learn to do the same. Of course he will be your teacher. Never again will you have to feel as if you are at the mercy of someone else.

Of course there will be times when he needs your comfort as well. It astonishes him how readily you open your arms and whisper comforting words. He buries his face in your neck and breathes you in. Every part of you is heaven to him, and he revels in the love and care you give him so openly.

Anyway, this is just my opinion. When it comes to good matches, I believe you need a healthy dose of push and pull. Someone who gives and takes equally and fairly. Yet at the end of the day, your one true match is the one next to you. Your husband.

I hope you enjoyed my ship. Love you, girl~ ♡♡♡

i have always loved your taako design and that model you just did really hammers that home! he looks so bouncy and alive and full of personality, and I can really hear his voice and general vibe coming off him in a way that a lot of other designs don't do for me. and he looks like a cool video game npc who gives you a cool quest! really great job!!!

OMG… THANK YOU… THIS MESSAGE IS SO INCREDIBLY SWEET… my design for him is honestly my favourite character design i’ve ever done and it means SO MUCH to me to hear that it resonates with other people and really truly feels like Taako to them. this is such a wonderful message thank you so so much

TalesFromRetail: "but you're the pharmacist?!"

hey TFR. FTP, on mobile, etc.

so i work at a retail pharmacy as a technician, so generally i get hit with people being stupid about their prescriptions rather than front end stuff, but we do have a lot of people who come back to us and ask about ads or discounts. normally i just tell them i have no idea, since i work in the pharmacy, and most people are cool about it and walk away. this friday, i had a special guy (let’s call him KM for klorQ10 man) who was just so, so, special.

KM was standing in line behind two other patients (patients meaning they actually have medications and aren’t the annoying people who are too lazy to walk up front to be rung up when they have no scripts) and had two bottles of vitamins, one in each hand. he was waiting and shaking the bottles like maracas, and then also holding them up to where his nipples are and saying “pew pew” over and over. like, okay, nipple vitamin lasers?

anyway, once he got up to me, he slams them down and mumbles, slightly drunk sounding, “these are BOGO, right?”

me: uhm i’m not sure actually because it’s a front end item, but i can scan one and check KM, very loudly: THIS IS KLORQ10, RIGHT me: yes? KM: coolcoolcool so it’s $5 for both right me, after scanning: it’s actually buy one, get one 50%, so with your store card, it will be $13.99 for both KM: is this KlorQ10 me: yes, we just went over this. do you have a store card? KM: why isn’t it $5? you’re the pharmacist you should know me: (not gonna mention that i’m not the pharmacist , just a tech) sir, this is a front end item. my knowledge of pharmacy doesn’t help explain our sale prices. someone up front may be able to assist you better KM: why is my…. what is this again? me: …..KlorQ10 KM: yeah. why is it not $5?? you’re the fucking pharmacist me, seeing a line building of all my regulars who are rolling their eyes to the grave: sir, there’s a line of my patients building. we both can quickly appease this if you go up front and ask my store manager about it KM: fuck off, i just wanted my KlorQ10!!!! walks away angrily

regular patient after he walks away: i almost told him to go fuck himself up the ass with those bottles.

Does Jonah actually have friends? They show him studying or lunching with other kids at school, and there's the Space Otters, but he's never shown really hanging out with anyone aside from the Good Hair Crew and Amber. Makes you think that maybe he seemed unapproachable to too many people and became isolated and lonely.

He seems to be probably the most popular kid in school so I doubt he has a lot of true friends. He does hang out with a lot of people but they all hang out with him because he’s a “cool frisbee player” so he probably can’t be himself around them. If say his best friends were Cyrus and Andi and that’s why he’s so upset Andi isn’t talking to him, he misses having a real friend he can be himself around

anonymous asked:

I have a (hypotethical) question about the pornstar Damen AU: so Laurent is pretty much cool with Damen's job, but would Damen be ok with it if Laurent's job included fucking other people?

HEY ANON for sure. 

Basically I don’t wanna give much away, cos a lot of the finer details have yet to be discussed in the fic, and the situation is an ever evolving one. But, to answer your question, Damen is a much, much, MUCH more jealous person than Laurent. Even though it’s all well and fine for him to go around fuckin’ people wily nily, as canon also supports, the idea of ANYONE touching Laurent, especially as they get closer and their relationship more meaningful, is horrific for him. Like, he can’t, not the least because he can’t imagine a situation in which Laurent would want that and if he did what it would mean for how he felt about Damen. Sure, he’s a hypocrite, but he hasn’t got the kind of rational mind Laurent does. 

Laurent is an incredibly possessive person– Damen is HIS, but he doesn’t mind sharing him, mostly because he doesn’t associate it with a threat to their relationship, therefore he isn’t jealous, and also because he’s gonna enjoy revelling in the novelty of everyone wanting Damen, but no one being able to have him.

That was very long, but I hope it answered your question! Of course, that’s just my perspective, given my fic and the circumstances. I’m sure other people will have their own opinions– to each their own!

since trans day of visibility is coming up in a few days (march 31st), i figured i’d make a list of advice for cis people commenting on/reblogging people’s posts/selfies?

  • do definitley like and reblog and tag and comment on our posts!! its what TDOV is for! show your support for the community by showing us some love
  • dont post any selfies if ur cis. today is not about u
  • if ur gonna comment about how great someone looks, great!!
  • just make sure u use the right pronouns/descriptors. most people put their pronouns on their selfies, but if they dont its easy to check their bio to see if they have them! 
  • also dont say stuff like “wow ur prettier than I am!!” bc that implies that u think cis ppl are more attractive as a default, so its insulting and patronising
  • if the post is one with pics from multiple stages throughout someones transition, pls dont say “its not fair u get to be hot in both genders!” because thats cissexist n transphobic and adheres to the “used to be a X” rhetoric and erases people with fluid genders and implies that cis ppl inherently deserve to be hotter/better 
  • go thru the tdov tags!! spread some love to all of us (not just conventionally attractive and/or passing people)
  • its not only selfies either. lots of ppl post some really cool content so dont miss out on that either

thats all i can think of rn. feel free to add on if u want

EDIT: okay so lots of people have said things along the lines of “im going to post selfies and theres nothing you can do about it” or “i want to post selfies anyway” and like. cool. whatever. im all for celebrating urself with selfies. just,, dont make this day about you okay? like keep out of the tags and dont make it an ally thing. and to the people who want to post selfies just because its a trans ppl day and for no other reason: fuck u

another ‘Humans are Weird’ post

so, sorry if someone has mentioned this before, but i saw a post about how humans were apex predators a little while ago, and one of the points it mentioned was that it’s cause humans have such a wide diet you don’t find in a lot of other animals.  plus, we’re pretty poison resistant to things that would hurt/kill most other animals (we’re the only species that is lactose tolerant as the norm, chocolate isn’t poison to us, plus other things that surprised me and i wish i had kept the post :c)

what if most aliens have limited things they can eat?  the Susutians can only eat plant matter of a specific color, or Luttans can only eat certain meats from certain types of insects on their planet.  so, when they come to earth they’re all like ‘on so what do you eat?’ and they’re thrown through a loop at what choices we have!  and they find out that a LOT of the food we eat on the regular is super poisonous to a majority of the known universe!

like, “oh hey, human-steve, thank you for visiting my planet.  we’re about to eat the meal of the tirid sun, will you join us?”

“o yeah cool what’s the apple looking thing on that tree?”

“apple….. oh, you mean the highly poison and deadly Punnadix Fruit? those are a scourge of my peopl- WHAT ARE YOU DOING?!”

“uh….. eating it?  it’s delicious?”

cue an alien having a heart attack, or whatever the equivalent is.  on top of all the other weird shit they’re known for, this makes then rise higher in the list of ‘creatures we are REALLY glad are on our side’.

can’t get no respect

[or, how to lose the respect of each sign]

aries can’t stand those who back down from a fight. If you’re the type that doesn’t deal with shit head-on, hesitate during a crucial moment, or use underhanded means to achieve your ends, aries won’t give you no respect!

taurus can’t deal with impatient, temperamental, or controlling personalities. If you’re competitive, always in a hurry, and have no chill, chances are, they think you’re an idiot. Overly-emotional, impractical people get no respect from taurus.

gemini hates boring people. That’s pretty much it- you might be the most horrible person ever, like a serial killer or some shit, but as long as you’re interesting, gemini is down to clown. The second you start to bore them, you won’t get no respect.

cancer doesn’t like people who joke about emotions, lack sympathy, or poke fun at their flaws (even playfully). If you’re a sagittarius loud, flaky, and always have to be out and doing something, instead of enjoying the comfort of family and home, cancer can’t respect you.

leo doesn’t like stingy, serious, reserved personalities. If you’re a capricorn tight-fisted workaholic who can’t just let loose and have fun, stay away. If you withhold praise and affection, the lion won’t give you no respect.

virgos are grossed out by lots of shit egotistical personalities. If you’re the type to brag, fish for compliments, or hog the spotlight, keep away. People who are irresponsible, gloss over details, and don’t play by the rules, get no respect from virgo. 

libra can’t stand selfish people. If you put yourself first, take more than you give in a relationship, or are prone to being blunt and tactless, do libra a favor and gtfo. Those who create awkward situations or hurt others, even inadvertently, get no respect from libra.

scorpio hates lots of shit, but if you’re shallow, fake, or prone to bending the truth for any reason, you’re basically dead to them. Tbh, scorpio is tied with gemini when it comes to hating boring (uncomplicated) people. If you’re not deep, or only pretend to be ‘deep’ to seem cool, scorpio will give u NO respect.

sagittarius can’t stand nit-pickers or worry warts. If you’re afraid of roller-coasters, spiders, etc, that’s fine. Sags understand fear. But, if you’re too much of a coward to try to conquer your fear, sagittarius automatically loses respect. If you’re bogged down by fear or focus on little details/flaws, just stay away.

capricorns don’t have respect for whiners or rule-breakers. If you can’t deal with your problems independently and maturely, if you stir up unnecessary trouble, and if you half-ass your work (esp in a group project) cap will give u no respect.

aquarius doesn’t care for stupidity. If you’re ignorant, bigoted, and let your emotions run amok instead of thinking things through logically, aquarius has no respect for you. Republicans and traditionalists, keep your distance.

pisces is a lot like libra. If you’re selfish or lack sympathy, you are not okay in their book. Also, if you’re too focused on material details, like being on time, thinking too much about money, and preoccupied with fleeting, earthly issues, pisces will give u no respect.

my dudes

my buddies

my pals

Let’s be real for a second in terms of like where this show is headed with regards to my favorite character (surprise it’s Lance jk no one is surprised)

Recently this tweet happened:

And some people are taking this really well and other people… not so much. Which makes sense since all of us have been like #thirstin for something more for Lance and have been met with a lotta nothing, but I think this tweet is actually a good thing.

So in this recent interview with Kimberly, Josh, and Jeremy, Jeremy basically says what he’s been saying since day 1 that’s been echoed by a lot of the other cast members and crew.

Basically: Lance will step up to the plate and he’ll become more of a leader and take on more responsibility but at the end of the day…

Lance.

Is.

Lance.

And when people ask for more about Lance in terms of his character, you don’t really hear much beyond this, which is exTRemEly frustrating but just hear me out.

It might not be this deep but I think it’d be cool if there’s a reason for the Voltron team being so adamant in the fact that “Lance is Lance.” And he will always be no matter what. This can go one of two ways.

1. Lance is Lance because he will always only be comic relief. 6 seasons of comic relief. That’s him. He’s Lance. A flirt. Cocky. Goofy. Sure he might have some moments like we’ve seen in S1 and S2 but for the most part he’s there to be the team goofball to make everyone laugh (or groan with frustration and annoyance)

Which is shitty and terrible and I will be so angry if this is what goes down but for now let’s move onto the MUCH BETTER option 2.

2. Lance does become a leader (maybe a co-leader? Right hand man? stays the Blue Paladin and just kinda steps up more? whatever) but no matter how tough things get, no matter how worn down the team is, no matter how hopeless the situation seems, Lance can still be Lance. And I don’t just mean he’s able to crack a joke at a tense time to lighten the mood, though that also is a part of it. I mean that he is able to keep a level head and calmly think things through even in chaotic or near impossible situations

That he is always concerned about the well-being of other and is willing to lay down his life for his friends (AKA PEOPLE HE JUST MET)

That he’s also not afraid to call out these friends when he thinks they are making a mistake (there seems to be a running theme with this one…..)

That he’s also appreciative of his friends and pays attention to their needs/wants and their strengths

And that he will always go down swinging

But maybe most importantly, and this is what I hope the Voltron team is trying to get at, Lance will never lose his joy and excitement and happy go-lucky demeanor. This is what makes him the Blue Paladin (and also why I think he would make a great Black Paladin but anyways….). He’s the glue of the team and this means more than just being the comic relief and making ill-timed jokes.

I really love the Lance that is able to start a weird space spore fight or wants to knit sweaters for Arusians. I love the Lance that enjoys doing a crazy dance while explaining their extremely dangerous plan to defeat Zarkon. I love the Lance that has fun coming up with wild ideas about what else could be locked up in Beta Traz. It’s not that he’s not taking his job as a Paladin seriously but rather that he is trying to take this crazy situation in stride as much as possible. We know that he can be worried, insecure, and lonely, but this never stops him from being who he is. He stumbles, loses confidence, regains it, and stands back up again ready to start swinging at the next asshole who decides to come for him and his friends.

Lance is adaptable just like water. He might come in different forms (serious, competitive, caring, homesick, flirtatious, etc) but at the end of the day it’s all of it is a part of who he is. He might need to get better at figuring out the appropriate timing of being leader Lance or flirty Lance, but it’s not like he has to lose the more immature part of him to become a more well-developed character.

So when people say “Lance will always be Lance,” I’m actually pretty fucking thankful. I’ve read some Langst where Lance becomes more “Keith-like” to cope with his insecurities which……. I’m conflicted about. I don’t think he needs to go as far as NOT be him in order for the team to learn to appreciate him more. So I think this affirmation from the staff that Lance will always be himself no matter what makes me believe that he will be what keeps the team together through the difficult and tumultuous times to come. That even despite his clear self-doubt he will be able to put the team and others first and maintain his role as the glue. That he will still manage to grow and change as a Paladin AND maintain the things that make him Lance.

There will be growing pains, of course, (I’m guessing a lot to do with Keith) but just because he’s insecure doesn’t make him weak. Lance doesn’t have to become more serious or stoic in order to be taken more seriously or be more “mature.” Then he wouldn’t be the Lance we know and love. He can withstand the challenges to come and develop as a character without sacrificing these integral parts of himself. He is capable of SO MUCH and I can’t wait for him to unlock the potential that was always there within him and makes him who he is.

... Somehow, Still Talking About This Captain America Shit (Now With Bonus Spider-Man and Agents of SHIELD)

So now Secret Empire has revealed its Shyamalan Twist and given the readers a Good Guy Steve Rogers as well as Hydra Cap, and the kinds of dickbags who, when this whole bullshit began were dismissing people’s complaints with “oh come on, don’t you know how comics works, it’s all going to be put back at the end, blah blah blah…” are crowing I-Told-You-So’s.

But here’s the thing:

Yeah, fucknuts.  We always knew this.

being feminine does not make you a girl. being feminine does NOT make you a girl. being feminine does NOT make you a GIRL. being FEMININE does not make you a GIRL! BEING FEMININE DOES NOT MAKE YOU A GIRL. being feminine does not make you a girl. 

its cool to be fem/fem-aligned and be a boy, be nb, be a girl even. but femininity does not inherently equal GIRL. its nice to remember that

Can yall seriously chill? K.A.R.D has stated not once but twice that they aren’t interested in dating each other. And yet some people are still like “well you never know..anything can happen.” or “You put attractive people together, something is bound to happen.” Just stop it. Lets seriously normalize that people of the opposite sex can be friends. Plus yall act like if they date issues will not come up in the group. It will and it can cost the group a lot of problems. So let’s just love K.A.R.D as a group of quirky, talented, and cool people who have bonded as friends and will be successful.

12 Reasons Why Old Souls Have Such A Hard Time Finding Love

1. They have a strong sense of identity.

They know who they are, which means they also know – specifically – what they do and do not want in a partner, what works and what doesn’t. While this is fantastic in terms of being able to choose wisely, it ultimately diminishes their pool of prospects pretty significantly.

2. Left unchecked, their hyper-intuitiveness can wreck relationships.

Often prone to overthinking because of how deeply sensitive they are, their capacity to worry and make assumptions can break relationships that don’t have a perfectly strong foundation.

3. Many are in the throes of twin flame relationships.

They’re attached or are with people who are not their “forever” people, rather, intense connections they’re meant to learn, and rapidly expand, from.

4. They often have a greater purpose that must be attended to first – one that love would distract them from.

They usually have to accomplish quite a bit on their own before they find love – this is because old souls love deeply, and completely. To be given love too soon would keep them from the other important things they are here to do.

5. They will not settle for anything less than soulmate love.

They require a lot more than just a surface-level, “average” relationship. They absolutely will not settle, and sometimes, that means biting the bullet and being alone for longer than what’s “average” as well.

6. While many people can bring them passion, few can bring compatibility.

Because they feel so deeply and others find them so fascinating, it’s easy for them to find infatuation, but to be with someone who is truly their best friend, deepest confidant *and* lover is a challenge.

7. They’re less inclined to go out and meet people in modern ways.

Even if they have nothing against online dating, it doesn’t always come naturally for them, nor does finding a random hookup at a bar or being set up blindly seem appealing.

8. They’re natural healers, and often attract people who need help, not love.

And that attraction is reciprocated. There’s almost nothing that feels better to an old soul than being able to help someone who truly needs it. However, at some point in time, it’s crucial for them to realize that they have to choose a partner, not a student, or a charity case.

9. They dislike the “game.”

Dating is inherently exhausting to an older-spirited person. Feigning disinterest for the sake of looking “cool” or knowing which faux pas other people find off-putting (how long after the first date do you text again?) isn’t instinctive to them, and can stress them out more than they ever find it “fun.”

10. Their standards are sky-high.

They expect a lot from themselves, so likewise, they expect a lot from their partners. While this is a great thing, it’s another quality that has to be kept in check: it’s more important to be able to accept the qualities that aren’t deal-breakers than it is to just write a person off because they’re imperfect.

11. They have baggage.

People who developed their inner selves quickly did so for a reason: they had to cope, they had to grow, or they had to learn from some challenging experiences that life set up for them. While this is a great thing on its own, unresolved issues can often re-manifest in close relationships.

12. They feel fear as intensely as they feel love.

The degree to which they love something is proportionate to how much they fear losing it, or not being “good enough” for it. They don’t just love intensely, they feel everything else intensely, too, and sometimes, that gets in the way of the really good things in front of them.
