and there are more works of course

anonymous asked:

If it's not to hard to ask; what are the major differences between Tumblr and WriteScrib?

I’ll list a few!

  1. User-curated forums
  2. Public/Private groups
  3. Blacklisting
  4. Keeping tags open in tabs to track the ones that you like the most
  5. The ability to approve followers if you want to be more selective
  6. The ability to upload a wide variety of file-types, including PDFs
  7. A communicative staff who are open to suggestions
  8. Whitelisted, optional ads instead of forced adsense ads
  9. Galleries to organize your content
  10. Bookmarks to organize other people’s content that you like
  11. Nested comments so you can only retain the additions to posts that you want to
  12. Volunteer moderator system
  13. Non-automated report system
  14. Content flags that filter out content that isn’t work appropriate, isn’t minor appropriate, or simply needs a warning before you check it out
  15. And Chips, of course, to tip users on their content

There’s more, but this is what’s coming to mind right now!

PSA for results day

Grades are important
But so are you

Results do matter
But you matter so much more

If you work hard for something, then of course it’s going to be important to you. If you need a certain result to get where you want to be in life, obviously it matters, but no score, result, point or grade will ever be worth more than you.

So if you’re upset on results day, that’s okay. It’s valid no matter how many times you hear “you’ll be fine, it doesn’t matter in the long run” you don’t have to think bigger picture just yet. Feel disappointed and let down, but don’t give up. Process your emotions, then try again however you can.

Education matters, but you matter most!

Penguin Teen Interns Recommend!!!

Summer is almost over, and sadly, it is time to say goodbye to our Summer 2017 Penguin Teen interns. They have been hard at work reading manuscripts, posting online Penguin Teen content, creating eBooks, planning author tours, attending lots of fun meetings and of course, doing lots and lots of reading! Before they left, we asked them for a few of their MUST READS you don’t want to miss out on!    

An Ember in the Ashes series by Sabaa Tahir

Oona Ryle (Publicity Intern)
“An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir could not have been more aptly named –  it won’t burn you, but the story will draw you closer with the warmth she creates in the character relationships. I’m reading the sequel, A Torch Against the Night, right now, and somehow, it’s even better than the first book!”

Perfect Ten by L. Philips 

Dan Denning (Retail Marketing & Advertising Intern) 
“They say to never judge a book by its cover, but I fell in love with this book the instant I saw the cover… whoops. Still, the vibrancy, romanticism, and humor you see on that cover is exactly what is inside the book too! Sam’s journey to find his perfect boyfriend in a town where he is one of the only gay boys kept me 100 percent invested throughout all 352 pages. Read it for the captivating story, the adorable characters, the juicy romantic drama, and because you REALLY want to know which of Sam’s four crushes ends up being the final boy behind that unicorn mask on the cover.”

What did Minseok say in the magazine??

both minseok and kyungsoo said shit that had everyone feeling like 😬😬😬 this was early 2016 when yixing had been in china for months and missing alot of exo activities

Q: If you’ve gotten a taste of acting I guess you’ll start wanting more.

Xiumin: I do want more. But I’m a realist. I won’t be greedy for what objectively will be too much for me to handle in my current situation. My parents always told me that nothing is good in excess. In order to act you need the spare time and energy to focus on it. Of course, if I’m given another chance I don’t want to let it go. I’m working on improving where I was lacking in my two acting experiences so far.

-Singles Magazine-

Q: if the movie filming happens at the same time as exo’s tour, what would you choose?

Kyungsoo: i’ll go on the tour. exo is the root. exo is the reason i got to stand here. exo is about living as a group. because i know so well the inconvenience when someone is absent, i don’t want to make them suffer. though i never miss our musical activities, i feel sorry that i missed the more trivial ones.

  • your boss was very particular about everyone looking perfect, and as you were the “face” of the Lotus Spa and Hotel, you were no exception
  • you worked as a receptionist for the Lotus Hotel, hired for your kind and hardworking personality
  • of course, you knew that the Lotus Hotel was a front for the much darker, much more illegal activity that went down behind closed doors, but your boss had promised you that you would be safe at all times
  • besides, he’d added, the hotel wasn’t a place for blatant fighting or shooting, it was a place where important deals took place– nobody would be stupid enough to endanger a worker of the 101 on 101 turf

  • it was your third month working night shifts there, and nothing had happened yet to make you think that it was an unsafe place to work

  • when you saw the man standing there, your breath caught in the back of your throat
  • he was handsome in a strange way, with curling hair, lithe body clad in a crisp traditional suit
  • “yes, I believe I made a reservation for one of the conference rooms?” he asked with a small, charming smile, one that almost seemed too charming
  • “May I have your name?” you asked politely, typing away on your computer to distract yourself from your racing heart
  • “Jinyoung,” he replied, picking up one of the business cards bearing your name and hotel phone number from the receptionist desk, playing with it absentmindedly between his fingers
  • “I have the reservation right here,” you said, reaching over to take the credit card he’d slid over to you 
  • “wonderful,” he’d replied with a smile, meeting your eyes
  • you blushed at the eye contact, your eyes darting back down to the computer screen in front of you
  • “here you go, thank you for choosing the lotus hotel,” you chirped, handing him his reciept and credit card back
  • “it was my pleasure, dear,” he replied, tucking his credit card back into his wallet
  • he met your gaze as he shoved his wallet back into his back pocket, pausing before picking up your business card, tucking it into his breast pocket
  • “i’ll be around,” he said with a small smile, sauntering away from the receptionist desk towards the back conference rooms
  • as you watched him board the elevator, you placed a hand over your chest, trying to calm your racing heart– what had just happened ?
  • the next time you saw jinyoung he strode up to the reception desk confidently, sending you that smile that made your heart speed up
  • “reservation for the conference room,” he said simply, sliding over his credit car
  • you nodded, quickly pulling up the reservation
  • “has your day been treating you well?”
  • “huh?” you looked up sharply, surprised that he was asking you such a question, “oh! yes, my day’s been alright. you?”
  • jinyoung smiled down at you, accepting the receipt from you, and you shivered a bit as your fingers brushed against his, “getting better.”
  • that night was the first night when something related to the 101 had happened while you had a shift, as the news informed you
  • you briefly wondered if jinyoung had gotten home safely, and you even briefly entertained the idea that he was maybe in the 101 himself
  • however, you dismissed the idea– there were hundreds of guests at the Lotus that night; jinyoung surely wasn’t the one who was involved
  • a few months after that incident, you were asked by your boss to take over one of the maids’ night shift, as she’d unexpectedly had to go home for the weekend

  • clutching your head, you turned around to face jinyoung, whose eyes were wide as he took in the scene
  • “(y/n)?” he asked, walking over to you quickly and shoving the duffel bag back over the pistol
  • “m-mr. woo,” you stammered out, eyes huge as you tried to process what had happened
  • his hair was messy, all over the place, curling into his now narrowed eyes, his suit slightly rumpled
  • “(y/n), i thought you ran reception?” he asked gently, obviously not wanting to startle you again
  • “i-i’m covering someone else’s shift,” you managed to stutter out, still clutching your chest in shock
  • “ah,” he nodded, heaving a sigh and taking a seat in the large chair, hand going up to loosen his tie, “no one bothered to tell you that this room was off-limits?”
  • your eyes widened again as you looked over at him, “no, nobody told me anything,” you quickly knelt to collect the cleaning supplies that you brought, “i’m really sorry about this, i’ll see if maybe the hotel can refund you? or give you a free stay or something, I’m really, really sor–”
  • “(y/n),” jinyoung interrupted you, eyes boring into yours intensely
  • you blushed, realizing that you’d been babbling
  • “it’s okay, i don’t mind,” he explained, “but given the circumstances, there’s something i need you to understand.”
  • you watched, cheeks growing increasingly red, as he carefully unbuttoned the top three buttons of his rumpled white shirt, tugging it down to reveal his collarbone
  • “oh.”
  • realization finally dawned on you as you took in the sight of his curling 101 tattoo, tangling with a couple other tattoos further down his chest
  • “ i’m telling you this now because clearly, your boss hasn’t informed you like he was supposed to,” jinyoung said, turning around and tugging his shirt off the rest of the way
  • you turned bright red at that, doing your best to avert your eyes from the bare back you were facing
  • “i-i’ll be going, then,” you rushed, shoving your cleaning supplies back onto the cart
  • “sorry to startle you, (y/n),” jinyoung called after you
  • “it’s no trouble,” you replied, bowing quickly, “sorry to cause such a mess.”

  • “woo jinyoung requested that you clean his room now,” he told you, “now hurry and go change. you’ll work every other day as a maid, but i still want you on reception for most of your time.”
  • you reached out to grab the uniform he’d tossed at you, getting up from your seat
  • on the one hand, you were pissed at your boss for being an asshole to you, but at least this way, you wouldn’t have to deal with actual people

  • the cleaning wasn’t difficult, and you found out quickly that maids actually got tips, while receptionists did not
  • jinyoung was always very charming and kind to you, which you also appreciated

  • you rushed over to his side, draping his arm around your shoulder and helping him to the elevator
  • “what happened?” you asked, the silence of the elevator heavy around the two of you
  • “ambush,” he replied, blinking a few times to clear his vision
  • you helped him to his room, depositing him in the large chair quickly before hurrying to the bathroom, grabbing a washcloth and wetting it
  • “do you need to go to a hospital?” you asked as you started carefully wiping the tacky blood away from his cheek, jinyoung’s eyes drooping closed slowly
  • “m fine,” he replied quietly, “just some scrapes.”
  • you sighed, going back to wiping the blood away
  • once you were satisfied with his face, you helped him carefully take off his suit jacket and button-down shirt, trying not to turn red at the sight of his bare chest
  • “your tattoos,” you murmured quietly, reaching out to trail your finger over the curling ‘HF’, wondering what it meant
  • jinyoung reached up and curled his fingers around yours, holding onto it as you started carefully wiping the dried blood from his torso
  • “jinyoung, i need my hand back,” you said gently, trying to go to rinse off the washcloth

hello!:) how do you think joshua would act when he sees his girlfriend breaks down rly badly for the first time? thankyou!

✄ Joshua || Reaction to his S.O. having a breakdown for the first time

Originally posted by unicorn-svt13

  • In my opinion, Joshua has this innate ability to be soothing and gentle when needed most
  • If his significant other has a break down, he might not immediately understand
  • But he will still be able to make them feel better, ya feel? 
  • storytime So the two of you have been dating for about six months now
  • And everyone constantly jokes about how they thought the honeymoon period would be over by now but if there’s any couple that makes it work, of course it’s the two of you
  • Or they otherwise comment about how the two of you make the perfect couple
  • Like there’s Joshua, gentleman prince with a mischievous streak and enough under the table memes that only serve to make him more endearing
  • And then there’s you!! hardworking university student with your head on your shoulders and your whole life ahead of you – everyone thinks you’re destined for success
  • Not to mention you have nice smelling hair, a sweet smile, and a pretty laugh…. pretty much most of the younger members have a small crush on you
  • They would never admit to it though because you and Joshua are the literal dream team and no one would ever dream of splitting the two of you apart

Nick’s pregnancy details

Trying to work a little more on how he got pregnant and some other details. So one thing I’ve thought up is the kits that he has are artificially made clones of foxes who are deceased.

I was thinking maybe some scientist were trying to figure out how to revive mammals who have died, possibly along with their memories before they passed. Of course by taking their DNA and somehow turning it into an inactivated  embryo. 

Nick’s kits (Amare, Alicia, Aubrey, and Andre) do get some flashbacks sometimes as they get older, from the memory’s of the foxes they are cloned from. Which later causes problems for the family when they realize Nick is not their biological father and that they are just clones.

Now I’m still trying to figure out how they were implanted in Nick. And how he was able to carry them. And still trying to decide whether the scientist were good or bad and doing illegal experimenting.

Group bike ride tonight!!

I had zero desire to do this after work, but I knew if I didn’t I’d end up sitting on my couch all night and turning into a blob. So I headed out!

And I’m glad I did! It was a good ride! Smaller group than last week, but I liked it a bit more. The pace was nice to start, but of course when we headed back there were some Strava segments that the boys just can’t resist. I held on though! 🚴🏼‍♀️

And one of the guys tonight told me he was impressed with how much I’ve improved this summer. Always nice to hear that 😬

Hope you’re all having good weeks!

Fluffy NSFW Head-canons for Dazai & Reader? ʕ•ᴥ•ʔ ;;


Fluff is such an umbrella term and it’s easier for me if it’s pinpointed, and since I’m a slut for fall I’m going to do seasonal fall fluff ^^

• The minute the first golden leaf falls to the pavement Dazai is covering your house with fluffy blankets. There are two on the bed, two on the couch, and one in the hall closet in case he accidently spills beer on one. Dazai stuffs the dresser and closet with comfy sweaters that he’s sprayed with his cologne so you think of him when you’re at work.

• Cold nights are Dazai’s favorite. He loves having more of an excuse to koala snuggle you on the couch when the nights get darker and colder. If he gets home before you he builds a very cozy blanket fort with fresh hot chocolate, spiked with a little rum of course, and invites you in for a relaxing night in his “snuggle cave”. He has an array of trashy horror movies to stream and freshly made doriyaki from the shop around the corner.

• Dazai will ditch work to take you on an all-day date to a fall festival. It’s a perfect excuse to spend the entire day together day drinking spiked cider, looking at the leaves change, and of course cheating at all the festival games to get you every stuffed animal prize within eyesight.  Day drinking with Dazai is always an adventure, and ends with both of you getting a little naughty in a photo booth by the end of the night. Dazai feigns shock when the strip of pictures comes out of the slot and quickly snatches them up before you can rip them.
    ∟ “___, don’t destroy our mementos! Don’t you want to look back on this in twenty years and remember how cute you looked with my hand between your legs?”

• Scary movie marathons are a weekend tradition when the pumpkins start appearing and Halloween decorations are hung in the windows. Dazai makes an entire night of it. Dragging you to his favorite candy shop and taking ten minutes to pick the perfect beer to ‘match the taste of the candy’ before tugging you into his arms towards the DVD section. Dazai snuggles against your cheek, plopping a quick peck while assuring you he’ll hold you tight if you get scared during the movies.

• Finding the best hot pot in Yokohama becomes a weeknight date adventure. Dazai makes a list of places he’s heard make ‘the best hot-pot in the city’ and whisks you away to try this supposed delicacy. These little impromptu dates are one of Dazai’s favorites; simple, good food, and just spending time talking and laughing with you. Closing out the restaurant is common on these types of dates, and Dazai loves giving you his coat to wear on the walk home.

• On lazy weekends when Dazai feels a bit down and doesn’t want to leave the house he constructs a cozy reading nook in the bed. He brings little side tables with warm tea, snacks you both enjoy, and a load of pillows and a big cozy blanket. Dazai dims the lights and leaves the blinds drawn a bit to let in natural light—just enough to be able to read but not bright enough to impact that comfy, relaxing ambiance. Sometimes he lays his head in your lap and asks you to read to him, and other times he barely lets you get past a chapter before he’s kissing up your neck.

More Junkers for @apmeka ‘s Forest Spirits AU! Finally managed to design the tattoo of the Boar Clan. And of course, it has to look a bit like a piggy. Anything else wouldn’t work.

Roadhog is the king of the Boar Clan, the great boar spirit, and the Earth Shaker. Junkrat had been part of the Dog Clan before, him being a simple fox spirit, playful and mischievous. For some long forgotten crime against his clan, he has been banished by the Wolf King, ultimately finding refuge in the boar territory and being taken in by the leader of the Clan himself.

I have no idea whether prosthetics are a thing in this AU? Junkrat still has his peg leg but what do I do with his arm??? Shall he be a three-legged fox? We shall see uwu

catsbythegreat  asked:

“why aren’t you eating?” Dazai being concerned about Chuuya?

Prompt

Warnings for eating disorders and self-harm.


Chuuya’s door was unlocked. He knew he locked it when he’d left for work that morning. It wasn’t an entirely unfamiliar situation, however, and Chuuya knew exactly what to expect when he walked into his home.

“Why aren’t you eating?”

…there he was. Of course.

I did two weeks worth of phonetics homework and grad seminar readings

My syntax instructor also wants me to audit her course instead of taking it for credit bc she has an overload and apparently I’m one of the few PhD students who did generative syntax in undergrad so I might just be sitting in and not turning in any work

If I do this I’ll need to pick up another course and I think I might do Old English if so but I’m not sure, I have a meeting with the grad advisor on Friday to talk about that, which is the last day of add/drop lol so I hope it gets worked out

I’m e x t r e m e l y anxious about everything but am currently on top of my work but I know it’s gonna get way more intense soon when my TA apprenticeship and my research job start and I’m dreading it soooo much

Creativity Night Announcement

Attention, Fandot! The next Creativity Night will take place in the fandot chat Saturday 26th of August!

From 7 pm UK time (and for as long as people want to play), we will gather together in the chat room, give quick prompts to work on, then share with each other and give feedback.

We’re keeping the time for each prompt short (15 minutes) so we can create a lot of different things in one night.  This is just meant to be fun and can work as a writing/drawing exercise, so the plan is to not spend too much time on each piece. If a prompt triggers a more complex idea, there’s of course no reason you can’t work on this and post it later. If another prompt doesn’t speak to you, you can of course skip it and wait for the next one.

New to creativity night? It’s not scary, we promise! Just read our excellent FAQ post by @madnina and you’ll find out all you need to know, or drop one of us a message and we’d be happy to answer your questions.

If you just want to hang out in chat while this is going on and maybe give the creators some positive feedback, you are more than welcome to do so.

Come to the fandot chat Saturday the 26th!

Could I get TFP Starscream,TFA Starscream,and G1 Starscream's reaction to his human s/o putting on Angels by the XX and singing it to him please? (I love your work btw ^o^)

This is a really good song! Nice and soft! (Thank you \(^.^)/)

Transformers Prime

He’s confused. Why are you singing to him? He listens closely to the lyrics, and falls in love with you all over again. He overcomes a few of his relationship insecurities in this short time, and he starts to let himself be more free spirited and spontaneous around you.


Transformers Animated

Of course you love him enough to serenade him, he’s wonderful! As he listens to more of the song, he begins to find the meaning in the lyrics. You think that highly of him? His spark melts. He’s so happy, his optics leak coolant. No one’s ever done anything like this for him before.


Generation 1

He’s touched. You serenaded him with such a beautiful song, and he’s simply over the moon. He’s reassured that you love him, not that he ever doubted. He’s amazed that you would do this for him, and holds these few precious moments close to his spark.

I got two more years and then I’M OUT.

anonymous asked:

can hox genes be used in utero to artificially create arms& legs where they wouldn't normally be? all ethical questions aside of course, I know about the one major study where a scientist used hox genes to create wings on a chicken embryo but I don't know anything beyond that like how they would function, how their brains would adapt, etc.

Well we know it works fine on flies, so the answer is ‘yes that’s totally possible’ though it would be less in utero and more still in vitro before implantation of the embryo but yes theoretically you can put limbs onto places were limbs don’t usually go.
