and now they aren't worth much

Hey, so I don't know if you already answered this, but what hogwarts houses are you, the creators, and their characters in? Also, do you spend a lot of time together when you aren't doing w359 things? Thanks for always communicating with the fandom, and I think you're all really amazing 💕 also, what do you think about stabby the roomba?

Aw, thanks so much! And yeah, I think we’ve answered The Hogwarts Question™ (and kind of answered it differently) at various points in time. But I can confidently say that @personalinsanitymoment and I are both Ravenclaws. @iamzachvalenti I could see as either a Hufflepuff or a Slytherin, so I’ll let him make the final decision there. And I have no thoughts worth sharing on Stabby the Roomba.  

Now, as to the crew… this is my completely arbitrary list, and not at all the official position of The Show: 
Eiffel - Hufflepuff
Minkowski - Gryffindor 
Hera - Ravenclaw
Hilbert - Slytherin 

Lovelace - Slytherin 
Kepler - Slytherin 
Jacobi - Gryffindor 
Maxwell - Ravenclaw 

Lambert - Gryffindor 
Fisher - Hufflepuff 
Hui - Gryffindor 
Fourier - Ravenclaw
Rhea - Hufflepuff  

Cutter & Pryce aren’t wizards but they are still scarier than any wizard living.

So I'm sure I'm by far not the only one to tell you this, but honey, if you need to push the SB update back even further--either because's writing's tricky or cause you wanna have it on Sunday for scheduling reasons--I don't think there's a one of us who wouldn't understand. (and if there is, they've got problems and aren't worth troubling over) Having a Mom who struggles with health stuff regularly, I know that anxiety band all too well. <3333333333 so much.

Thank you my dear. *so many hugs* It really is lovely to read this–you’ve put my mind at ease about my decision. (I also hope things are going okay with your mom right now–it really is such a hard thing to have to deal with, I know. <3)

I actually am going to push the update back a couple of more days and aim for Saturday for the chapter. This week has been harder than I expected, and I need the extra time to finish writing. I feel terrible about it, to be honest, but I also know that I need to practice some self-care, which is part of my goal for 2018, so I am going to take your advice (and that of @noeeon and @sassy-cissa). Many, many thanks for reminding me to put self-care first in the new year.

So yes, expect SB on the weekend, my dears. As always, I’ll put up a notification here when it goes up! <3 <3 <3

hello! do you know any sites that offer cheap/affordable binders which aren't low quality? i'm really broke right now and i'm not really able to afford a really pricey binder, thank you in advance!

I personally use online giveaways (there are a few in our faq which might be worth checking out). Unfortunately I don’t know any cheap binders that are worth going near, they’re all quite dangerous and pretty much the same as using bandages, I’d definitely not recommend them at all.

If possible it would be worth saving up until you can get a good one. Safety is really important, even using a “proper” binder is not completely safe, binding decreases your lung capacity and can really mess you up if you do it for too long.
There’s also the option of sports bras if possible, or a DIY camisole binder.

The signs as Stress
  • Signs as stresses
  • Aries: Having too much on your plate at once, spreading yourself too thin because you feel like you have to accomplish all your goals and be the best you can be all the time. Cut yourself a break and realize you have your whole life ahead of you. You don't have to be 100% on track every single day, sometimes just taking a day to chill even if it puts you behind a little can be therapeutic and make you even better when you get back to the grind.
  • Taurus: Others changing plans when you had the whole day planned out, things not going the way you want. Trying to control every situation may comfort you, but you can't possibly know what's going to happen all the time. Be more open to new experiences and remember, putting yourself outside your comfort zone can help you grow.
  • Gemini: Trying to figure out what you want to do with your life, deciding what you want to do as a career or where you want to end up in life. Nobody knows who they are the moment they're born. Life is about growing and learning and trying new things. You are a work in progress and the best thing you can do for yourself is what makes you happy now, in this moment. The future will be there when you're ready.
  • Cancer: Losing people close to you because of something you have done or said, being responsible for rift in your relationship with someone. Sometimes, you mess up. You say the wrong thing. If it was your fault, own up to it and try to move on. If you had to step away from a friendship because you felt like it was detrimental then keep your head up and know you deserve to be happy too. No one knows how other will react to what we say and do, you can only do your best to realize when you've messed up or if maybe the break was better for both of you. You may feel empty now but things will get better.
  • Leo: putting your all into someone and being let down, knowing that you are giving everything but they are only half-assing the relationship. You can try until you're blue in the face to help someone else and be there for them, but they don't owe you that in return. And you owe it to yourself to be around people who respect you and appreciate what you do. Don't get mad at them. If you're not being treated the way deserve, maybe you need to let them go and see if they realize on their own exactly what you're worth.
  • Virgo: not living up expectations, having the bar set too high by others and not achieving what they thought you could. Maybe you were super smart when you were young but now high school is much more challenging. Maybe you aren't getting perfect grades in college. Maybe your job is proving more difficult than you thought and now you have to try, every day, just to be average. The only bar you have to reach is the one you set for yourself. Don't get disillusioned by the things other people think you can do. If you are having a hard time, give yourself a break, step back, and set smaller goals for yourself. Take it one step at a time and remember that you can do it, maybe you you just have to work up to the top. It doesn't mean you aren't as smart or amazing or great as you were.
  • Libra: Not standing up for yourself, realizing you've been letting others walk all over you or take advantage of you. Sometimes you have to speak your mind, and sometimes you have to just let things happen. The hardest part is deciding which battle to fight. Never fighting, however, is only going to leave you stuck in whatever place others put you, following in the footsteps of a hundred other feet and feeling sorry for yourself. You have the right to challenge ideas you don't agree with and make your own destiny, even if if means you have to walk solo for a while. You are strong enough to March to your own drum. You are just as important as those around you, don't take the backseat.
  • Scorpio: losing control of your emotions, having a huge outburst and feeling attacked by those you love. Not everyone is out to get you! It's difficult to expose your inner thoughts to other people, not only because they can use it as a weapon against you, but because you feel like you are lesser and weak when you express yourself. But, if you keep everything inside until you explode on your friends, you only have yourself to blame when they won't put up with it anymore. Let a little out at a time, you don't have to dive in the water, but at least feel if it's warm before you lose your cool and hurt other people. Make an effort to be more open and I'm sure they will appreciate even a little budge.
  • Sagittarius: being stuck, for whatever reason, somewhere you dislike, feeling trapped or held down. For financial or other reasons, you may be stuck in a small town, a city you don't like, or a dead end job that makes you miserable. Keep. Up. The Hustle. You are destined for great things, but everyone faces setbacks. Learn a new skill, like crocheting or making something to make money on the side. Make connections with people who want to move forward too, End relationships with people who try to hold you back. Take every possible hand that reaches out to you and keep strong, you will be where you want to be someday. Don't take the little things for granted and keep your mind grounded and you can find your island in the sun.
  • Capricorn: running behind schedule or being late due to others, having someone not put in their share of work. People are people, and they make mistakes. Yes, it's annoying when your feel like you're the only one in the world who has it together, but one of these days when you fall behind pace, you'll appreciate the slack. Being constantly dragged down by others, however, isn't okay and if it becomes more than a minor inconvenience, maybe you need to switch up your role and put more pressure on others to succeed. (In a helpful way)
  • Aquarius: the weight if knowing you can't change things, knowing you are only one person and you can't alter the system no matter how broken. There are so many unfair situations, like a school system that loads you with so many tests you can hardly get by, or maybe your town is facing an apathy apocalypse where it seems no one cares about the environment, poverty, the ASSHOLE GOVERNOR (OHIO!) You see the big picture and that's a precious gift. The first step to changing anything is to recognize the problem, and if you stay passionate, you can change the world.
  • Pisces: getting older, the steady progression of time with an unclear future. Time moves forward, and that can make you feel as though you're being left behind. Everyone has this clear cut path and you feel like you're floating through, no particular goal or destination, a ghost wandering purposeless. At some point, every person has this existential worry that they will get older and still have not found their place. Just have some faith that one day, you will find what you love and things will come together. Life has a funny way of working out, even if you don't know it's plan just yet. Be patient and stay aware and present. Try not to get caught up in worrying and trying to imagine a perfect future. You are important and you will find happiness.

anonymous asked:

Yall aren't posting like you used too... are yall busy, or you just aren't getting good questions?

A combination of both. We are busier now than we used to be and we get asked if we still believe in damie which is ridiculous and not worth replying to or we get asked things we already replied no more than a week ago. And well there is not much happening in the fandom atm so is normal to be more quiet. Many are on holidays or studying for their finals. Dakota & Jamie are under a rock, they appear on fan pics around the same time & then go back into hiding. It’s a convenient timing.

An Unlikely Friendship
  • Mary: *opens her front door*
  • Molly: I... I could kill a man and not get caught. Or a woman. No one suspects the quiet ones. One girl’s night, a well-timed bit of aconite in your drink, “oh I forgot my favorite cherry jumper at work, can we stop off round the corner at Bart's?” A few quick slices and you’re so much medical waste.
  • Mary: … … …
  • Molly: *on a roll* Sherlock could be experimenting on your liver by lunch. It’s the largest organ, best to get it out of the way first. He’d never know the difference. He never gives back half the body parts I give him - I'm afraid to ask honestly, but they'd never be found.
  • Mary: *carefully neutral* His Nibs finally told you the truth about who shot him, then?
  • Molly: Oh. Well no, not actually. I suspect he’d never rat you out. But c’mon, Sherlock Holmes is shot face to face and he doesn't solve the case? I know him better than that. He's protecting someone. Protecting you.
  • Mary: *nods* He’s been not solving that particular case for nearly a year now. How long have you suspected?
  • Molly: Um… Nearly a year now, I suppose.
  • Mary: *hand subtly out of sight behind the doorframe* Why now, then? I'm not pregnant anymore, so you thought you'd have a go?
  • Molly: Wha-- no. The point is that I'm not going to “have a go.” I’m not suicidal; I certainly wouldn't warn you if I was. Quiet one, remember? I'm here because, well… you’re just so lovely, aren't you? You’re a mum now, and you and John are so happy, and you're funny and clever. I wish I didn't like you half so much. I can't hold this weight anymore. I know, Mary. I know that you shot Sherlock. I know that Sherlock and John both forgive you. I know that he’s alive, and that he absolutely adores you and he has his reasons, so I… I forgive you too. For what it’s worth, I forgive you.
  • Mary: *relaxes* It's worth more than you might imagine. I'm starting to get why Sherlock likes you, Molly Hooper.
  • Molly: Yeah well, you too. I...g’night. *turns to go*
  • Mary: Be Rosie’s godmother!
  • Molly: What?!
  • Mary: Be Rosie’s godmum. I quite like you too. There aren't many people in the world who know what I am and still like me. Three by my count. Four if you count Rosamunde. And I know a certain consulting detective who wouldn't mind an excuse to stand in front of a church with you, whatever he pretends. Molly - we ladies who could kill a man and not get caught, we ladies who choose not to everyday - we should stick together.
advice to the signs
  • aries: baby, it's okay to let go. you don't always have to be so damn hard. you're only human, it's okay to not have it together all the time. we'll still love you.
  • taurus: stop being so damn paranoid. your friends are your friends. no one thinks you're annoying. they love you, and everything is going to be okay.
  • gemini: sweetheart, i know you mean well. but not everyone does. you love them, but you sure have a funny way of showing it.
  • cancer: you spend so much time trying to sew everyone up, you hardly even realize you're tearing at the seams before it's too late. invest in a mirror. kind of like on an airplane, put your mask on before assisting others.
  • leo: everyone deserves a second chance. let people redeem themselves, everyone has their bad days.
  • virgo: no one ever got to the top and stayed there by climbing on top of other people. we're all fighting for the same thing, you don't have to do this alone.
  • libra: if you keep going back to what hurt you, you're no longer a victim, you're a volunteer. the definition of insanity is doing something the exact same way and expecting different results. baby girl, you're worth so much more than drunken promises at 3am that are never fulfilled.
  • scorpio: depression isn't a house guest, it's a trespasser. stop feeding it, kick it the hell out, it's not welcome here.
  • sagittarius: change is good. but too much of anything is a bad thing. do you even recognize yourself anymore?
  • capricorn: it's not you against the world. maybe if you let someone in every now and then, you wouldn't feel so god damn lonely.
  • aquarius: people aren't replaceable. drugs only delay the pain. let yourself miss them, it wouldn't hurt so bad if it didn't mean so much.
  • pisces: life isn't this hard darling, I promise you, you're gonna get through it. you always do.

Cosplaying actual shadow creatures like Dark Link should not count because 1) they are not now nor have they ever been anything close to African, and 2) that pitch black skin color does not occur in nature so you aren't impersonating anyone
