and this site in general

Adventures of a DnD group.

Your Druid is sneaking through the camp site and a few soldiers start walking towards her general direction.

Druid: Uhh, I turn into a tree.

DM: The camp you’re sneaking through is in the middle of an open field.

Druid: Shit. I’ll turn into a tree anyway.

Soldier: Hey, has that tree always been there?

Druid: I’ve been here for weeks.

DM: Roll to bluff.

Druid: Nat 20

Soldier: Well the tree would know better than us I suppose.

People on this site are just…disturbing when it comes to fiction in general.  They literally want everything to be perfect, happy sunshine and roses (probably because so many of them are living vicariously through fiction as a substitute for reality, and thus can’t help projecting themselves into it).  That’s just…not how fiction works.  That’s the most boring shit–who honestly wants to read/watch that???  We NEED strife in fiction, as there is strife in reality.  Characters NEED obstacles to overcome in order to have a character arc.  A story NEEDS a conflict to actually be a story.  If all you ever read is the kind of Mary Sue crap where everyone gets along, you’re going to be the most boring, sheltered motherfucker, and have no idea what to do when you get out into the real world.

Villains need to be allowed to be villains.

Characters need to be allowed to have bad things happen to them, even if they’re the “good guys”.

Fiction needs “bad” things, because it helps us recognize, understand, and cope with those “bad” things.

>The districts include, the noble district which is in the upper/Northmost part of the city set on a hill which will have three different staircases that can get you in and out of the district.
>Within that district you have a smaller district encased in marble walls and only accessed by gate called the Imperial quarter which houses the Imperial Senate house, the Grand Library of Tevinter (lorewise its equivalent to the library of Alexandria and is nearly impossible to get into - there will be a quest dedicated just to that place), Archon’s Palace, the grand temple of Dumat and senatorial mansions.

His Mind Created the Perfect Metaphor

Dear BBC Sherlock community,

Ever since Sherlock series 4 came out, collectively we were like “what the HELL is this?!?! This doesn’t make any sense!” BUT after many months of tossing ideas around the fandom, we have made theories that could explain the weirdness, but nothing we can all agree on. Now, this meta here may be absolute garbage to you, but I believe, in my heart of hearts, I’ve solved it. Please read it in its entirety with an open mind before you reblog it just to tell me I suck.

Thanks in advance, you da best

Paige


Here’s the short version: Sherlock actually jumped at the end of The Reichenbach Fall, just as Doyle intended him to die. Gatiss and Moffat said they are correcting something in this adaptation that no one else has gotten right before. Many of us assumed the homosexual romance was the one thing they were changing, but we were punched in the face right after The Final Problem came out.  Gatiss and Moffat are changing the sacrifice. Holmes was intended to die for his friends but Doyle needed more money and rewrote the series after “The Final Problem”. That turned Holmes’ sacrifice into a cruel joke against Watson. This is what BBC Sherlock is fixing, and we’re about to see it come to fruition.

I know many theorists despise the homosexual reading of Holmes and Watson, while many people in general despise theorists on this site. That’s fine, I don’t care how people feel about gay theories and/or TJLC and its followers.  But I’m here to tell you TJLC, at its core as a concept, was right. You may hate Moffat and Gatiss, you may think Sherlock is a piece of shit show, and that’s fine, you do you. But hear this one meta out, please. I think even the hardest skeptic can at least apprectiate the thought and logic behind this.

The Tumblr Poetry Aesthetic, or: the stars, the sea, Icarus, dark suburbia, and the (un)intentional pandering and ungrowth of the well-established

this conversation was initiated for me (madina) personally by giana @syrupbrat and stefan @travelingsalesman. epoch discussed this extensively in our discord chat, and the content of this post is mostly pulled out of that discussion.

When browsing through the usual tags used to promote one’s own writing on Tumblr, such as #inkstay, #spilled ink, #poets on tumblr, etc, we seem to drown in the sameness of everyone’s writing styles that it all is indistinct. It boils down to a haze of blah blah blah stars, blah blah blah yet another comparison to a Greek mythology figure, more love poetry, girl as dangerous, boy as god, alcohol is the only way we’ll survive.

These themes originated in what one might call the heydays of Peak™ tumblr poetry (this is starting to sound like a school essay & smh I can’t let this post go that direction), circa 2013(?)-2015. Most of it was documented in @nosebleedclub‘s “Memories of a Certain Spring: A Workbook” – Nosebleed Club was, in fact, what you would point at if you were asked in 2014 what “Tumblr writing” is (cue the emphasis on was, the evolution of NBC continues until now & I feel like a proud daughter about it). Multiple networks and groups have then spanned from that model, some which are still going until now, some abandoned and left to the dust – just so that you could be part of that “elite cool kids club”, whether the original one or not. the writers in the original collective also had their writing styles copied and/or plagiarized to capitalize off how prevalent and popular this aesthetic is but nvm that’s not my place to extensively rant about

I do love the stars. The sea, mythology, dangerous teenage gods, I love them all and I honestly would die for them (yes, the planets, ocean, and those tragic myths included) – but when people write about them just because they think it’ll be popular, just because it fits into the predefined box of what is proven to be well liked – an aesthetic that has since consumed us – exploration and experimentation dies, and that’s when it becomes dangerous. Everything posted will only be the product of rehashing and emulating what has been written and consumed before – shallow imageries without anything to say, without anything to make it yours. It got over-commercialized fast and crumbled. Let’s not even mention those who made a fake persona to make their poetry feel more “real” and authentic, those who write about drugs and alcohol w/o experiences backing them up and only stereotypes & what other people have written about it.

This phenomenon is further supported by Tumblr itself being a bad site in general bad platform for writing on its own – those notes, those likes and reblogs, really do shape up to define you, whether you’re conscious of it happening or not. We all crave for that feeling of being noticed because that’s just how it is. I myself can’t even say I never wrote something just for those notes, and I’m sure others that started out writing in Tumblr can say the same. If you don’t realize it yourself; if you don’t become self-conscious of the fact that really, Tumblr is a bubble, and do not actively seek out for anything new because you don’t see the need for it – you get stuck in it. Even if you wrote with the aesthetic that we all fell in love with, there’s a chance that you won’t get the recognition you think it deserved – it crushes you, and the cycle repeats again.

(this aesthetic, in turn, bled and drenched almost every tumblr roleplay until they all became the same and unrecognizable individually, whether with the usual tropes of characters: Sad Rich Girl With A Heart Of Gold. Bad Rich Boy With A Heart Of Gold. Gay Guy With A Bad Past So He’s Hypersexual Now – or situational: your edgy Welcome To This Small Suburban Town Where Everyone is a Supernatural Creature, or perhaps your This Is A Simulation of a Real Life Town for People Who Have No Lives)

Personally, I do believe in the existence of Bad Poetry – though “underdeveloped” is the word I prefer to use (maybe it’s just because I’m a softie and I can’t say outright that it’s bad, but let’s be real, bad poetry is bad poetry). No soul and nothing else to offer than just a few pretty words and fleeting concepts. Pseudo-profound bullshittery. u wanna get off it?

  • internalize the fact that we unconsciously seek for approval
  • get off tumblr for a while and write in your solitude 
  • consume more than u write.
  • explore & experiment upon different themes and structure. get out of your comfort zone in writing
  • write about your own memories and experiences, whether good or bad or interesting or not interesting, not what is deemed is consumable
  • turn to your culture and read up those local myths

– Honestly, I don’t know how because it cannot be forced. But recognizing that this exists will in turn make you think even more critically about your writing.

oh, that’s it – be critical. To the words that surround you & the words that come out of you.

To close this off: “its Everywhere like i get it . u wanna be a vampire cheerleader with a smile too big. i Get it . lets do something else” - @arckhaic

The Embracing Pompeii Couple Might Actually Be Two Men

“The Two Maidens” of Pompeii have long stood as an iconic image of Pompeii’s tragic destruction and a symbol of human love. The two bodies, seemingly holding arm in arm, were one of the hundreds of people plastered in ash following the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79 CE.

As the nickname suggests, archeologists previously assumed it was two women embracing. However, new research strongly suggests these were actually two men embracing.

Scientific tests of the teeth and skeletal remains have revealed that one was an 18-year-old man and the second was probably a male aged 20 years or older.

“We always imagined that it was an embrace between women. But a CAT scan and DNA have revealed that they are men,” Massimo Osanna, director-general of the Pompeii archaeological site, told The Telegraph.

They asked for Amourshipping as the protagonists of Pokemon Uranium, traveling through the region of said game!

They are going on an adventure together with Pikachu and some Pokemon Uranium exclussive pokes! (though you can’t see them on this view). It seems the road is blocked by a river that overflew its banks to let’s take an alternative route!

The general opinion on this site is that IRL aliens wouldn’t be anything even remotely humanoid. I’ve seen people come up with terms to describe organs, appendages, and genders.

From a statistical and evolutionary standpoint, it’s likely that alien life could be so alien we’d struggle to even see it as life.

However, people often forget the other side of the spectrum.

What if we leave Earth, stumble across an alien species, and find that they’ve dealt with humans before?

Not humans exactly, but close enough that an inexperienced eye would not be able to tell the difference.

From a biological standpoint, it’s possible that a species with no relation to us would evolve in a manner similar to ours. Not to mention that there’s really only so many designs that could be considered as viable to locomotion and manipulation of one’s environment.

From a statistical standpoint, it’s highly possible that even its culture could be uncannily similar.

What I’m saying is, what if we have a twin out there?

Reylo shippers/the people who have the most extensive knowledge of the dynamic of Rey and Kylo: we have accumulated a lot of evidence over the last year+ and studied the film very closely to put into words our interpretation that there is a romantic angle and possibly foreshadowing of a two sided love story in the trilogy between Rey and Kylo. Most fanboys, news sites and general Star Wars fandom: THAT IS THE MOST STOOPID IDEA I HAVE EVERY HEARD, REY IS SO OBVIOUSLY A SKYWALKER DUH, KYLO KILLED MA FAVOURITE CHARACTER HE CANT BE REDEEMED OR HVE HUMANITY IT MAKES ME UNCOMFORTABLE !!! REYLO SHIPPERS AND ALL FANGIRLS NEED TO BE TAUGHT HOW TO DO STAR WARS PROPERLY-OUR WAY-SO THERE Mike zeroh: wait a minute guys, hear me out I just came up with a theory, maybe Kylo has compassion for Rey and they could fall in love, after over a year I have come to this sudden realisation Most fanboys, news sites and general Star Wars fandom: WHAT AN AMAZING ORIGINAL THEORY MIKE!

The main criticism of this blog before I took over was that some of the costumes were from Yandy.com, a website for lingerie and costumes. I’ve gotten numerous messages about old posts from people claiming that these costumes were actually designed to be “sexy lingerie” (side note: if you think someone’s roleplaying a sexy pizza you have an interesting sex life, lol).

I just wanted to clear this up. Yandy sells halloween costumes and lingerie (note the HALLOWEEN in the first image). 
They also sell Halloween costumes for men, and the vast majority are not “sexy”.

This blog is addressing the fact that costumes made for women are overwhelmingly skimpy and there are not enough choices for women who do not want to wear a sexy costume. This is even spreading to teen & children’s costumes. It is not about any single site, it’s about the general selection available.

Hi! Sorry if I bother...I see you're more active on IG these days, so I was wondering if you're not gonna post your art on Tumblr (or Twitter) anymore. I love your art, thanks for sharing!

tumblr is quite frankly a hell pit and it’s been wonderful not even opening it.  (Not YOU guys just, the site in general, I’m a tired woman) That being said, idk I’ll probably upload them here. Who knows. sorry @_@

For those who use instagram >>> https://www.instagram.com/elentori

Also lately I’ve been having a lot of problems with art theft and instagram, being predominantly mobil, certainly helps hinder that problem.

Twitter I do plan on still using! I just hadn’t had a chance to get to my computer to downsize images yet :D https://twitter.com/Elentori

Study/Homework Tips Volume 2

1. Study with books. Avoid the computer as much as possible so that you don’t get the urge to look at social media, email, and other websites that probably won’t help with your homework/studying.

2. Try to avoid studying or working on homework in your bed. This way, you should have less of an urge to just fall back on your pillows and go to sleep when you should be studying. I recommend sitting at your desk (if you have one), on the floor, or at your dining room table.

3. In essays or informational papers, color code your dates, terms, people, words that have some sort of large connection to your topic, events, places, and quotes. Try to make sure you have some of each because these will normally help make your papers stronger.

4. When writing an essay, make sure you acknowledge the opposing side’s point of view. You shouldn’t agree with them, just make sure you acknowledge that they have reasonable feelings about this topic, too.

5. If you’re having trouble writing an interesting essay introduction, try starting your intro paragraph with a quote that relates to your topic. Even though I’m a straight A student, I had trouble with these, too. This has helped me so much in the past!

6. Use different notebooks for each class. This is another great way to help separate your notes to help prevent all of them blending together.

7. You’ve probably heard this one before, but study each subject with a different flavor of gum/hard candy. When taking your test, chew or suck on the same flavor of gum/candy that you studied with.

8. Clenching your fist helps you remember the word that’s on the tip of your tongue.

9. In class, don’t doodle all over your note papers. Instead, put some sort of little doodle by important things like maybe a little flower is a symbol for a date, or a little smiley face for a key person in an event.

10. When studying a foreign language: study with flashcards, don’t be worried about your pronunciation but try to speak your words/phrases out loud, write down that language’s grammar and conjugation rules, and PRACTICE!!

11. Study from videos if you need to. There are a lot of different YouTube channels run by people who know a lot about the subjects you are learning. This is how I learned most of my math skills ahead of my grade. It’s also helped me write essays about the ancient Roman emperors for my world history class.

12. If your friends are trying to text you about the latest gossip or whatever you like to talk about, try spinning the conversation to talking about what you’re studying. Who know, maybe they understand your homework or study topic a lot better than you?

13. Change study positions. If you’ve been sitting at your desk for the past hour, try sitting or laying on the floor.

14. When in doubt, Google it! If you forgot something that your teacher taught you in class, Google what that was or just the topic in general and go to a site you know you can trust. Please don’t use Wikipedia! Seriously, one of my old teacher’s friends was know as the inventor of haircuts for like 5 years before someone figured it out.

15. Try not to stay up super late at night or even all night studying. If you’re really that worried, study on the bus on the way to school. You can also study when you get there before your first bell rings and maybe even for the first few minutes of your class.

Good luck! I hope this helps! Follow me for more and/or comment what lists and tips you would like to see next! I love hearing from you guys!

defendthechibi  asked:

I'm a beginner in Chinese and having a hard time finding out where to start. What would you recommend?

@defendthechibi: mmmmdamn. ok, so Chinese is not a lang I approached on my own, I started in a class, but with that said here’s some combination of how that went down and what I would suggest (if you are a self-learner of Chinese pls do add):

1. Get a fucking fantastic foundation in pinyin and tones. I cannot emphasize this enough—start good habits now or it’ll be really terrible to find out no one understands you because you were like “tone, I’ll come back to that!” Here is a very nice pinyin chart with literally every syllable combination recorded with every tone. Here’s a pinyin practice game. If you can get someone who already speaks Mandarin to help that’s of course ideal, especially for the retroflex sounds, but not essential. Either way make sure you practice speaking aloud. Here’s a funny tone explanation that’s secretly great.

2. Pick a book and stick with it. So this is not Mandarin-specific, but I find that self-learners (myself included) have a habit of starting like three different texts for one language and it’s a mess. Decide if you wanna start with traditional or simplified characters, then pick a textbook, it wont be perfect because nothing is, and maybe just a grammar book for reference. We used Integrated Chinese in class, but I don’t know that I’d recommended it for soloing, Practice Makes Perfect has great other books I’ve used and seems like a better choice. This series is good grammar help, and so is Modern Mandarin Chinese grammar (pdf). When looking for textbooks I recommend reading reviews and also taking into consideration the time/pace you want to work at. Learning a language is a lifetime thing so really you just gotta start somewhere and plow ahead. (also check what the library has!)

2.5 Don’t buy those damn books of character lists. I’m sure you’ve seen them, “memorizing hanzi!” “500 common characters!” whaaaatever. Whatever textbook yr using will tell you what characters you need right then, and if that’s not enough there are plenty of frequency lists online. More importantly, do learn the radicals When it comes to actually getting characters into your brain it’s some combination of mnemonic device (which works better if you make it up, not if some rando writer does anyway) and rote muscle memory—so all you need is paper. Get square/grid paper and pay attention to proportions or if you must get a book, get one that has practice space. Skritter is amazing and wonderful and I cannot praise it enough but also it is not free. But like if yr really serious you’ll probably have to put some money down somewhere. Whatever you do, do not buy Chineasy it is a plague upon our language learning household. (note: some people suggest not learning characters until after awhile of studying spoken. That sounds sort of terrible to me, and it also means you won’t be able to engage with anything Chinese online. But it is a thing, and sites like YablaFluentU, and ChinesePod could be a way to go [and are good anyway])

3. Practice, practice, practice! Ok cool you started doing some stuff! Check you out! If you want to get feedback start posting snippets on Lang-8, you can even meet people to skype with. Or if you want (and have a smart phone) you can get a chat buddy on hellotalk. Maybe there’s a meetup group in your area who knows. Make yourself/download an Anki deck, etc. etc. Just try to always do a little something everyday. I think because of characters Chinese has a particularly steep learning curve—I still can’t open a webpage and just like read it—so it might be better to focus on practicing what you know rather than trying to engage too much with “actual” Chinese. That said….

4. Don’t loose hope, find fun things in Chinese. Even if it’s not actively practicing your language skills, find ways to enjoy Chinese that don’t drain you like too much studying will. Listen to music,  read about idiomswatch movies, or if you’re a nerd like me, read about Chinese linguistics! If you have a hobby, you can find stuff on your hobby in Chinese. e.g. here is a whole cooking channel that is also subbed in English.  DramaFever has, duh, lots of dramas, but is not free. 

I hope that sounds like a setup for success! Here’s some dictionaries: MDGB, HanziCraft, lineDict (let’s you draw characters). If you have a smartphone get Pleco. Here’s a thing that annotates text & has rollover translation: MandarinSpot (maybe get a plug-in if yr into those). Here are general help sites: SayJACK  & Chinese Grammar Wiki. There are so so so many other resources out there, but rather than stockpile them all right now I think it’s better to focus on whatever textbook/system you chose and just start moving. Once you have a little more of a base then look for cool blogs or whatever works well for YOU. 

If there was something more specific you wanted just throw that @ me. If people have suggestions you can send them in and I’ll compile them so we don’t have to reblog this massive thing  くコ:彡  くコ:彡  くコ:彡 

So I was thinking today about how almost everyone in ME wears translators (not just for talking with aliens)…
And about how some words just don’t translate.

What I want to consider is words that don’t translate well into one Earth language, but do in at least one other.

So whichever alien word might not come across in English, but when translated into Swahili or Chinese or German…
And vice versa, aliens getting the best overall understanding from translating someone speaking Hebrew or maybe Tagalog.

Anyways, that’s what I’m interested in, and I hope you’re all having a nice day.
