and there are not enough people making nice things

You honestly write Harry so perfectly (especially his accent) I actually believe that it's him through your writing. I honestly can't thank you enough fro your writing. (Don't judge I'm feeling super sappy after I re-read basically all of your stuff for the 102564th time;)) Seriously you completely take me away from reality through your writing, and I cannot thank you enough for that! Xxx

This is way, way, way nice of you. It lights up my world like nobody else my day, and I really appreciate it – especially when people say they reread things, cause that to me is crazy. Cause then it’s kinda like… not just like, but love, you know? Too much for my head to get around, haha. Thank you so much for stepping into the little sandboxes I make and enjoying watching what I’ve tried to build with each one of them, I appreciate it more than you know. x

(P.S. I was working on updating my masterlist, but my browser is allergic to my blog right now? Tumblr is fine, but my blog is not, so that… will happen as soon as my browser stops flipping out. Sorry, all, who are waiting for links on things that haven’t been put up yet! x)

favorite fictional girls: Blue Sargent [The Raven Cycle]

“When does the potential start being a real thing?”
     “Ah, Blue.”
     “Don’t ‘ah, Blue’ me.” Blue released her mother’s hand. “I just want to know when it stops being potential and starts being something more.”
     “Maybe you’re already something more. You make other psychics so powerful just by being there. Maybe the potential you bring out in other people is your something more.”
     Blue had known her entire life that she was a rarity. And it was nice to be useful. But it wasn’t enough. It was not, her soul thought, something more.
     Very coolly, she said, “I’m not going to be a sidekick.”

I just want to say thank you to Dan and Phil. Thank you for a year of happiness. Thank you for making 2015 a good year for me. Thank you for spreading positivity and motivating me to do things I wouldn’t do if you two weren’t there for me. Thank you for making all of us feel important, and expressing your love. Thank you for showing me that we all will find a soulmate and a best friend to accomplish many things with. Thank you for giving me a sense of humor and helping me express myself positively. Thank you for being you, and for making videos. Thank you for doing a liveshow almost every week, and connecting with us. Thank you for wanting us to be apart of your success. Thank you for being nice people, and appreciating everything you have. Thank you for showing me that we all can accomplish our goals if we try hard enough. Thank you for sticking with us, which is why we stuck with you. You’re apart of our lives. You are what prompted many of us to do what’s best for ourselves and others. Thank you for helping us find who to look up to. Thank you for being our inspiration. Thank you for setting a good example. Thank you for being you.

Thank You

Hey. All you cool, creative people: you should never stop writing/painting/sewing/singing/whatever because you think it’s not good enough. The world needs your art, and above it all, YOU need your art.

My favourite thing to remember is that art isn’t one time use. When you make a piece of art, if it turns out in a way you don’t like, you can reuse the idea and try to make it better the second time. So don’t stop doing art because you think you’re ‘messing up the idea’ or that you 'just can’t do it right’ or that 'it’s not good enough,’ because you’ll never make it good and you’ll never do it right unless you DO IT, and you can change it and redo it as many times as you want. (PS, a secret: Art isn’t always about doing it “right”, anyway!)

“My first thought was, ‘Well, I’m not old enough to play Captain Hook.’ Obviously everybody had that traditional idea of Captain Hook in their minds. Creators Eddie Kitsis and Adam Horowitz wanted to go for a slightly younger Captain Hook. I thought it would be a nice way to put a slant on the guy, try and make him slightly more lovable than outwardly evil, which is how he’s always been portrayed before. He’s just a sort of a nasty bad guy in everything else, whereas in this, I wanted people to feel bad for liking him. He is different than any other Hook. It’s a fantastic thing to be able to get to play such an iconic character, and be able to do it in a way where I can put my own spin on it. That was a thing that I thought about when I was coming into it. I was a bit worried about whether or not people would respond to this Hook, or whether they would be like,'He’s not like the Hook that we grew up with so we don’t accept him.’ But people have taken Hook to heart a little bit, which is good.” - Colin O'Donoghue

Chase walked into the ballroom of the hotel, looking around the decorated room with his mouth slightly agape, there was no denying how beautiful the room looked- although he wouldn’t say that out loud. He was shown to his seat and he made his way there slowly, greeting people and having small talks with them as he went along. He had only met his father’s fiance once before and she seemed like a nice enough lady, but the thing that worried him was she had a son, and for his whole life he’d been an only child. He wasn’t sure how it was going to work, but he was sure everything would turn out fine- if not he’d just threaten to leave home and his father would do anything to make him stay. 
Once he got to his seat he noticed a blonde boy across the table from him, Chase picked up his glass of wine and took a sip as he looked over at him with narrowed eyes, studying his face for now.

Interrupting the pleasantness to say, again… could we please not tag Lin on original posts of bootleg material. He searches his tag to engage with fans, especially fanart and personal messages. A lot of us like having him on here. Putting bootleg material in front of his face when he comes here to talk with fans is an excellent way to make coming here a bad experience for him, one, you know, he might not want to continue.

Not to mention it’s just unnecessarily rude. I know people aren’t used to this in every fandom and a lot of you are new. Lin is an actual personal presence on social media, both including and apart from Hamilton. And I think we’re very lucky to have him. His name in the tags or his handle on twitter is not just a content marker. It’s potentially addressing him. That doesn’t mean you can’t fangirl the fuck out. Tumblr is for fans. It does mean certain things are inappropriate to tag with his full name. Tagging him on bootleg posts is a really crappy way to repay him for everything he’s given and continues to give.

Screenshots from episodes 4 and 5. Things that are important here: the use of the words team and family.

Keith doesn’t want Pidge to leave the team, but he doesn’t specifically mention the team. He mentions people’s families, which is what Pidge was worried about. No doubt he was attempting to make her reconsider by using a word she was inherently interested in and was sensitive to. Others have mentioned before how ironic/nice is is of Keith to say that specifically, considering he’s an orphan and how the reason he wants Pidge to stay is because she, along with the others, are his family now.

It’s actually Shiro who uses the word team. He tells Keith that people can’t be forced into the team, they must want to stay. He’s not talking about family (specifically), but about the team of paladins they have formed.

Then cut to episode 5 and after they’ve dealt with Sendak, it’s Shiro who starts saying he can’t help but feel like Pidge was meant to be part of the team, but won’t stop her if she wants to leave. That’s when Pidge recalls her father’s words that his team was like family. Pidge is the first person to associate the two words, and Keith immediately says “welcome back to the team”, a clear call back to Shiro’s words back in episode 4 about how a team/family can’t be forced.

Keith is welcoming her back to his family.

How can I contribute? How can I inspire - that life is much more than finding love. That hearts break and sadness occurs everyday - but I want people to reflect and know that you are enough- that you can be happy, that simplicity is sometimes all we need. And this is simple,

Be kind
to your mind, body and spirit.
do not tear yourself apart with numbers on a scale
Or the way your beautiful skin hangs over your jeans.
Eat nice foods
Nourish yourself.
Do something that makes you radiate from your fingers with pride.
Do these things all for you - not for someone’s validation.

Allow yourself to look in the mirror and say “I’m enough, I will be successful, I love my crooked smile, I’m perfectly imperfect”. To have a affirmation that makes you realize that you are so much more than what society tries to make us feel that we aren’t.

How can I ? How can I ? When I see filters of ‘perfection’, models and where women are constantly judged from Hollywood to the halls of a high school what they look like, what they wear.

Where every magazine cover says: “bikini body ready”, “ lost 10 pounds in two weeks”, “makeup to hide imperfections.”

Making us believe that when we achieve these things that’s what will make us finally happy,

Society judges us base on our capsule we reside in.

Do not allow someone to dictate who you are on the sole findings of what there mind makes of your cover.

If only society wanted to know my soul more than how I cover my dark circles under my eyes.

When’s the last time you thanked your body for what it does everyday?

we are more than bodies, we have feelings we are energies - we are imperfect and we are so amazing.

Society is the one that is screwed up, putting pressure on women, men, making us change our capsules we reside in to make us feel that we belong.

They judge you for not being like everyone else, how ironic.

Live your life authentically- what makes YOU happy and you’ll start to notice that life isn’t as bad as society makes you feel.

One day the wrinkles will set in, and I will be old and gray and I hope I leave a legacy behind more than just being a pretty face back in the day.

I want someone to hear my name and know the kindness I left, and I made this world more human before I turned to dust.


It’s simple.

Be kind.

—  Demetra Demi 

this might be a dumb thing to be thrilled about but I’ve had three people message me about giving me a card on my birthday at the top concert on the 18th and it’s just so surreal that people are actually that nice? most of my family doesn’t really ever celebrate my birthday so its unreal that some of you would want to be kind enough to do something like that. You guys will make 20 a great year.

Drawing for the sake of being popular

If that’s the first thing on your mind, you’re priorities aren’t in the right place.

I get that it sounds nice to make a name for yourself, but what about the steps that got you there? All that work you put into your craft? The struggle means something. It means a lot more than some likes, follows, and reblogs.

I’ve seen it time and time again. I’ve even felt it myself.

When you get this feeling like you aren’t getting enough attention, it starts to change your view on things. You start to see other people working hard on their art differently.  Sooner or later, you don’t even see them for who they are; you just see them as “better than you”. That sort of envy can lead to hate. Don’t let yourself get to that point.

I don’t care about what the other guy’s work looks like compared to yours; you’re doing this day in and day out so you can better yourself. That’s what you should be proud of.

Why do I reblog people’s art/drawings you ask?  Because they put their time and love into that piece.  They were inspired enough by a prompt posted on this blog that they wanted to make something that popped up in their brain and flourished into something that they just had to get it out there.  And once they’ve done that, they’ve gone even an extra step and decided to share it with the world rather than keeping it to themselves.  Sometimes they don’t tag the blog in the tag section, but sometimes they put themselves out there even more and go for it.  Why?  Because they want to share it, they want to find other people with similar headcanons, interests, ships, fandoms, etc., they want to get a bigger audience.  They have made something that means something to them and they have decided to share it with us.

And that is why I am 5000% against people reblogging those works to write insults and degrading comments in the tags or actual post or actually send them rude, anonymous messages.  If I see you doing this/find out you have, you will be blocked.  No exceptions.  I’m not even close to fucking around, okay?  I am absolutely furious at what people do on this site, this sense of entitlement some of you have.  If you don’t like it/aren’t in the fandom/don’t like the ship/whatever, then don’t reblog it.  Talk shit, get blocked.

Horoscope - July 22 2015

Aries Horoscope

(Mar 21 – Apr 19)

You might try a more cautious approach to sharing your feelings today, but you could be stressing over the wrong things. Instead of wasting time trying to guess how others will react to your emotional disclosure, just let the cards fall where they may. Your impatience can interfere with whatever stability you have already gained. But even if you feel stuck with no clear direction, there’s no need to force progress now. Relationship dynamics will make more sense soon enough if you can relax your expectations and enjoy the present moment.

Taurus Horoscope

(Apr 20 – May 20)

You have very specific ideas about how your day should unfold but you may not be able to stick to your initial plan if you want to play nicely with others. Managing your schedule is impossible when people keep changing their minds about the activities that include you today. But you can’t just take all your toys and go home because you might need to provide a strong shoulder for someone to lean on when things get dicey. It’s pointless to push your personal agenda now; you have a lot to learn and plenty to offer by going along with the flow.

Gemini Horoscope

(May 21 – Jun 20)

You may not feel like revealing too many details today, even if you know exactly what you want. Keeping quiet seems like your best option since you’re afraid that others might not agree with your position. It’s likely that your intuition is on point now because your coworkers don’t understand your current motives. Thankfully, you won’t have to respond to questions you prefer not to answer if you don’t give too much information away in the first place. Focusing on someone else’s needs is a clever deflection because it allows you to play the role of a supportive friend while also conveniently taking the bright light off of you.

Cancer Horoscope

(Jun 21 – Jul 22)

Although acting more spontaneously sounds like a wonderful idea in theory, you might not enjoy the experience if you’re worried about the criticism you could receive for your behavior. You feel emotionally exposed now as if others already know your desires, even if you haven’t uttered a word. However, your fear of disapproval can be a problem if you’re monitoring everything you say and do. One way to reduce your current stress is to practice unconditional self-acceptance. Ultimately, those who matter will respect you as long as you’re being true to yourself. Authenticity counts.

Leo Horoscope

(Jul 23 – Aug 22)

Your imagination continues to run rampant with three planets clustered in your 12th House of Fantasy. However, drama is simmering in your real life and you could be pulled into an emotionally charged conversation with a close friend or relative now. Although you prefer to keep your feelings private today, you won’t be able to stay out of the spotlight for much longer. Nevertheless, use your downtime to figure out what your heart wants so you are ready to handle the delicate relationship issues that pop up in the days ahead. Forewarned is forearmed.

Virgo Horoscope

(Aug 23 – Sep 22)

You can’t help but be nervous about sharing your goals with your associates, but exercising too much hesitation today could cause you to miss an exciting opportunity. You might shy away from casual conversations or even turn down a social invitation if it doesn’t align with your agenda. Although making a hasty retreat isn’t necessarily wise now, neither is responding too quickly. Something worthwhile will likely withstand the test of time, so waiting a day or two before making a final decision ultimately works in your favor.

Libra Horoscope

(Sep 23 – Oct 22)

You often go out of your way to balance your needs with others since maintaining peace and harmony is key to your relationship success. You might even choose to keep some of your preferences to yourself because you don’t want to disturb the status quo. You may have a specific destination in mind today, yet you’re reluctant to say anything because you don’t have the logistics in place. Don’t worry about the details now; just be clear about your objectives with the understanding that satisfaction could still take a while to reach. Honesty is the best policy, especially with yourself.

Scorpio Horoscope

(Oct 23 – Nov 21)

You have been reconsidering your long-term goals ever since solemn Saturn retrograded into your sign last month. Even if you’re anticipating the future, today’s Mercury-Saturn trine requires you to stop and review your past to better understand your current feelings. You may worry that you can’t actualize your ambitious plans, but your caution could turn into self-doubt if you overanalyze every move. Do yourself a favor now; don’t assume the worst-case scenario or that might be what you manifest. Rest assured that your lost confidence will return; it’s just a game of mind over matter.

Sagittarius Horoscope

(Nov 22 – Dec 21)

You may not want anyone to know that you’re wrestling with your doubts now, but there’s no reason to fake confidence if you aren’t currently feeling it. It’s healthier to show more emotional restraint instead of taking something too far when you are not totally invested. Spontaneity comes naturally to you, but you benefit today from some quiet time to reassess your direction. You don’t have to spill the beans if you’re not in the mood; leaving some details to the imagination serves you well.

Capricorn Horoscope

(Dec 22 – Jan 19)

You might not want to deal with an associate who is emotionally needy today, yet your empathy with someone else’s feelings can open doors to a new level of friendship. It’s worth the struggle now as you try to determine what lines to cross and how much to reveal. Of course, it’s safer to play the role of the stoic friend and hide behind a wall of reason. However, avoiding your feelings could create unnecessary resistance. Lean into your fear of intimacy by being radically honest; you may be pleasantly surprised by what happens when you open your heart.

Aquarius Horoscope

(Jan 20 – Feb 18)

You could be so goal oriented today that others don’t know how to react to your unabashed ambition. Your emotions are uncharacteristically intense, even if you don’t want to dwell on them. But any attempt to downplay your feelings creates a different set of problems as someone misinterprets your nonchalance as a sign of disinterest. Don’t hold back now when it comes to expressing your dreams; go out of your way to let the ones you love know how passionately you feel about your future and their place in it.

Pisces Horoscope

(Feb 19 – Mar 20)

You may be overly concerned that you have taken a relationship too far too fast and now you want to run to a place of emotional safety. Or maybe you made an inaccurate assumption about someone’s feelings, creating unnecessary drama. Fortunately, with realistic Saturn in the equation today, you’re committed to getting all the facts right, even if they complicate matters. There’s no need to make any sudden moves. Take a few steps back from the awkward situation and give yourself enough distance to regain an objective perspective. Time is your ally.

i dont think enough people realise dan makes a conscious effort to be as least offensive as he possibly can bc he is terrified of people getting offended and criticising him so by judging the things he says in liveshows/tweets makes everything so much worse because if youre hating him for the stuff he tries so hard to be nice about hes gonna stop!!! communicating!!! with!!! us!!!

theres a girl i met recently and shes the sweetest thing, whenever she sees someone coming over to her she looks away with the cutest smile on her face until they get close enough to talk and it makes my heart fuckin melt every time and I never tell people the nice things I think about them but the next time she does it i think im gonna have to say something because its so adorable that telling people on the internet about it isnt enough

Labyrinth Table (2015) by Benjamin Nordsmark

The Labyrinth Table was created to show how a well known object like a table can be given an extra dimension by creating a small universe inside of it. The labyrinth consist of several walls under a sheet of diamond glass, and inside of it there are six characteristic figures that can be moved around by handles underneath it. Most people possibly remember from their childhood how they used to play with miniature figures in small universe similar to the real world. And these nostalgic feelings are the ones that the table should generate in people minds and encourage them to explore and go deeper into the story of the labyrinth. The table was built up with a main core in steel to make it strong enough to last for decades and was later on covered up with 5 mm. of massive maple wood. A nice thing about this detail is that the handles stick to all the surfaces on the table because of the magnetism.

I just keep thinking about some minor battle in New York. Nothing that’s really a threat, like a bunch of stubborn Doombots or something. Just enough for the Avengers to be called out.

And when things are pretty much mopped up and everyone’s cracking jokes despite Steve telling them to focus, please, they’re still a threat, pay attention people, Hulk tosses a Doombot against a building and just… Wanders off.

So Clint follows him, which isn’t hard, really, Hulk’s not raging or smashing, just wandering in the general direction of the tower. And he makes his way up, through the freight elevator or some back entrance to the garage, back into the building, Clint behind him cracking jokes the whole time.

Until Hulk gets to the pool and sits down.

And Clint’s like, “Uh, dude, what’re we doing here? Throw a guy a bone, what the hell are we doing?”

So Hulk pats the tile, and then scoots over and pats the water and stares at Clint. Clint stares back. Hulk sighs and gets up and opens up the closet where they keep the happy fun time pool toys and starts tossing all of them into the pool, balls and swim rings and giant inflatable dinosaurs and ride on sea serpents.

Clint just stands there, watching, until a beach ball slams into his face, and then he’s like, “Do… Do you want me to get DJ? Are you here for, like, is this a play date?”

Hulk sits down, a beach ball in his hands, staring at the door. Not mad and not scared and not quite ready to relinquish things to Bruce, not just yet, and Clint has to call Tony and explain that maybe swimming? Is a thing that is going to happen?

And five minutes later, DJ bounces in with his swim flippers on his hands instead of his feet, because he likes the clapping noise they make when he smashes them together, and so does Hulk, and by the time everyone else gets home, all of the toys are in the pool and Clint has taught Hulk and DJ how to play ‘Marco Polo’ and that was a horrible mistake.

And that’s how DJ and Hulk ended up being regular pool buddies.

I always knew @milliardo-peacecraft was a really good driver but in the off-season as I watch drift videos and read stories, I’ve come to appreciate how rare what he did last season was. he took a relatively nice 240SX with a stock KA, lowered it, welded the diff, made it look even better, and drifted the snot out of it. he didn’t make excuses about not having enough power, he wasn’t doing stupid things to impress anyone - he went out and drove and had a good time and was damn good. Only now, that he has basically mastered the low-power drift, is he moving to a more powerful setup. I didn’t know any better at the time, I thought that’s just what people did because my total knowledge of drifting was Initial D, basically, but I realize now (in the States at least) that this is rare, and my respect for him has reached even higher levels.
