We all suffer from procrastination. It’s not news, and it drives us all insane.
No one wants to do that one thing from work, that one thing for school, or sometimes even go see that friend you haven’t seen in a decade. I man why would you when instead you could just stay where you are on your couch (or bed) watching that latest season of House of Cards on Netflix?
We need to change your current mindset, and there is only one way of doing it.

“…and I tried to refrain, but you’re stuck in my brain…”
He sent you flowers: red, yellow, and white mixtures of
color to brighten your day. Although this gesture wasn’t just meant to brighten
your day, in your situation, it was a calling, or a summons.
“Tonight. 10pm. My
place.” You read the card inside your head. “Signed, Ashton.” You read his
name aloud, that way it seemed much more real. His handwriting wasn’t the
neatest; his n’s connected into his i’s, and his p’s sometimes resembled g’s or
q’s. Still, you could read it as clear as day because you were so used to
It was earlier then usual, though. That’s what happened when
you got onto the merry go round that was never going to stop. The calls were
never going to stop. Ashton was never going to stop. Your feelings were
starting to get in the way, and that’s exactly why you needed it all to stop.
Reluctantly, each time you walked past the flowers in your
kitchen, there was an urge deep within you that said you had no choice but to
go visit him tonight, just as the note in the flowers had directed. As you
stared at them for a moment, a sudden rush of anger came over you like a wave
crashing on the shore. The tide was high and it was pulling you out, further
and further into the deep blue. In this case, your feet carried you over to the
bouquet and you harshly took the flowers out the vase, stomping over to the
garbage can and dumping them into the white bag.
In that moment you decided that you would go over to
Ashton’s, at 10 pm, just like his note said, but you wouldn’t be going over
there to please anyone, him nor you. You’d be going over to make your
statement. You were going over to provoke him into hating you so that he would
stop with the usualness of his gifts: the flowers, chocolates, jewelry, hotel
rooms and nights spent with him. They were tools all to win you over. So far,
he had succeeded immensely, but tonight you would prove his attempts a failure.
You would prove him wrong and that his hold on you wasn’t as strong as he thought
it to be.
Just like the many times before, the note and gift were the
only attempt of conversation Ashton had put forth that day. You didn’t expect
him to say anything else because he expected you to show up right at 10
Hey guys, the mianite card deck for Cards against humanity has been finished. You can always still request additions to black and whites cards and I’ll be willing to add them if they aren’t in the list.
The custom card deck works for xyzzy. If you are the game admin, type /addcardcast WKGEK and you’ll have the Mianite card deck!
Thanks to the remarkable rihouston, I was lucky enough to participate in the fabulous and ambitious Wicked Grace Project!
I was one of 7 artists who took part in creating five suits of cards for a one-of-a-kind Wicked Grace deck - an original and unusual birthday gift project for the fabulous Greg Ellis. 52 individually painted designs for 52 cards. Also, every card has a balancing ‘opposite’ card. I painted 10 cards in total using GimpShop (with a mouse since I don’t own a tablet *cackles*). Each card has a different symbolisation, and a character from Dragon Age to match.
I will be opening card-style commissions in the next week or so - please send me an ask if you’re interested. =)
Other credits under the cut. Please do not repost my art without original text and credit. Thanks all!! ^_^
Do you get a lot of questions about the Throat Wolf joke?
Not any more. It’s a very old joke.
For those that never heard of Throat Wolf, it was Magic’s first urban legend. Supposedly, Throat Wolf was an ultra rare card printed on its own sheet. Each Throat Wolf was different but they all had “firstest strike”.
ah yes, anders, the neurotypical rich healthy cishet white boy. oh, wait. fandom is so gross
you know what’s funny though is i see the fandom pull this “privilege” card with anders but almost never any of the fandom babies and far more deserving candidates like alistair and cullen. the fandom also rarely holds them accountable for the shitty problematic stuff they do, but i guess if you can romanticize a character’s trauma and make it “””pretty””” and fixable (like the shitty love cures all trope) by your player character—-particularly a female one—- then they get a free pass. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
Deeks is quiet as they leave the Mission and head towards her car, walking with his shoulders slumped and his hands in his pockets. Kensi tries to catch his eyes, but his head is tilted down. She stares at his profile instead - he seems completely lost in thought.
She knows he lied to Hetty just now, just as she’d known he’d been lying to her earlier when she’d given him Detective Rivera’s card and he’d said he wasn’t sure why IA might want to investigate him. She’d made up her mind then that she’d follow his lead in this no matter where it led, but she needed something to go on.
So, since Ravnica, I have been really tired of gold themes/subthemes/build around me cards (It's felt like every block is built around some sort of multicolored factions since Innistrad, and I dislike the forceful shove in deckbuilding. This is, incidentally, why I loved core set drafting). Am I going to be disappointed in the future? I know you say things ebb and flow, but you've also said that the philosophy around gold has changed and that you wanted to include it in every set.
One of our goals is to make each block have a deep draft environment which means we need to have more deck archetypes than just five monocolor ones. Opening up two-color options adds ten more deck possibilities.
What's your opinion on people creating their own card divination systems?
Seriously. If you have a system that works for you, then by all means, use it! If an established system doesn’t quite work right and you want to tweak it, then tweak it. There is no One True Way of card interpretations, not for tarot, not for playing cards. Take or make what works for you and continue refining it. Consistency and reliability is more important than tradition or historical use.
Well, it’s more of a “sorry not sorry”, and I tag all of it #legend of zelda, but there may still be a slight admixture of Zelda content in the usually-scheduled MTG stuff. Because I’m not super-hyped about Dragons and I just finished Twilight Princess and holy ship, Link and Midna are so cute.
And hm, does anyone have any ideas for cards for Link and Midna?
