and what it says about them

davromega  asked:

I have seen several people in varying politeness ask/tell/demand that you basically treat evil societal destroying fuckwads like someone that bailed on helping you move or showed up 2 hours late for a dinner. How in hell can we make the country better by having said fuckwads in charge and having far too many people saying it will work out... give them a chance... let's all forgive one another and be brothers while these fucktards destroy our world?

Part of what makes us liberals is our empathy and our hope for kindness to prevail, so I get it.

But when someone is stabbing you in the face, you don’t politely ask them to stop. You fight back.

When someone is stabbing someone else in the face, you don’t wait for them to stop, and then ask them to talk about their feelings. You stop them.

And, to be quite honest, the majority – and I mean the vast majority – of people telling me that we have to be patient and understanding with Nazis, or that we really need to just think about the deep game theory of blah blah blah are white dudes who aren’t worried about money or influence, who aren’t threatened in any meaningful way by the Nazis we all need to punch more.

So keep punching Nazis and then punch them some more, until they are all gone.

When people say ‘chill out, it’s just a video game’, I’m always reminded of when people are like, ‘dude it’s just marriage’ or ‘dude it’s just a bathroom’. 

People try and make your issues seem smaller than they are because they don’t want to hear it, they don’t care what your issues are, to them your issues will always be small and non-important. 

Don’t even bother with those arseholes. It’s not just about a video game just like it’s never just been about a bathroom,

never stop talking about being ignored, don’t let them get away with this bullshit. 

Rings

There is a girl on campus who is called Rings. Everyone thinks the name comes from the fact that she wears at least two on each finger. (She wears necklaces too, and bracelets, and many earrings, you wonder where she gets them all)

She can be found outside at a picnic table shuffling a deck of cards. (You don’t recognize any of the symbols on them)

If you walk up to her she will always ask, “Want to play a game?”

The answer no gets a shrug and usually a question as to why you are there. Many enjoy just speaking to her about their day. “She’s nice to talk to,” they say. (They don’t mention the way their eyes are drawn to the rings whenever she waves a hand. Or how hard it is to break their gaze away from how her necklaces shine in the light)

The answer yes gets a laugh and another question as to what they want to play. (Poker and blackjack are popular answers, but sometimes Go Fish is just as popular)

The next question she asks is what you will bet. If you just want a friendly game say you will bet nothing. She will smile and pull out a bag of treats and you will play with those as a reward. (Most decide to do this, she is easy to play with and the treats are safe. It is when you bet something that the game is dangerous)

Those who wish to bet something bring jewelry, songs, pictures, or anything they value. She will always match the value and the game will begin. Slowly as it goes on the bets get bigger, and sometimes people bet things they didn’t plan to. (People whisper that one person lost all of their clothing one time) The game usually ends with the bettor leaving to do something with items that they don’t think they need. (Eventually they need them though. One time someone bet their final History paper hoping to get the Bio final key. They got a ring of rose quartz instead. The next day they traded the rose quartz to a Gentry to get their friend back)

But there are those who truly wish for something more powerful. They are the foolish ones who attempt to find their friends with only the iron around their necks and salt in their pockets. They are the ones who want to get close to the Gentry to study them and want protection. (Magic is everywhere in Elsewhere but magical items are hard to obtain, and the Fae sometimes will be interested on how you got them)

They come with Virtues, favors from Fair Folk, pictures of true forms, anything worth one of Rings enchanted objects.

Sometimes she sees the fierce determination in the eyes of someone who wants their roommate back, or needs protection from a Gentry they got on the bad side of. To these she slips off a ring and without a game give it to them with a laugh and a comment that she’ll get it back later. (Those are the lucky ones, and they always end up seeing the ring she gave them back on her finger a week or so later)

Other times she looks at them and simply starts the game. Sometimes they win. Most of the time they lose. Losing is not something you want to do. (You always lose more than you think)

If you find her during a game with people who don’t look quite right, never interrupt. The stakes there are higher than you will ever know. (The cards seem to glow)

People speculate that she’s not human, but many of her accessories are made of iron. Others say she won her power from a game with the Fair Folk (They are not quite off the mark)

You find Rings at a picnic table off the near your dorm. She’s finishing up a game with one of the Chemistry majors you know. She looks at you and smiles. (You can now see why some don’t think her human) “Want to play a game?” she asks. You shake your head no. You sit down and stare at her hands shuffling the cards. You only ask one question.

“How do I become a card dealer?”

She grins.

Just a bit of perspective on the real term bullshit that the Voltron fandom had done/gone through outside of general tumblr pettiness such as accusations, and editing important moments for other ships
Also, rough day so I’m particularly salty tonight which inspired this

Antis
- Sending death threats, gore and child porn to shaladin shippers
- Dragging Showrunners and VA’s into this embarrassment and turning on them whenever the Voltron team shows support for a ship of says something that goes against what they want them to say
- Dragging Josh Keaton’s kids into an argument they shouldn’t be part of
- Burning Sheith fanart
- Abusing a word in the wrong context (Pedophilia) and turning it into the new ‘Trigger’. Newsflash guys, using that word wrongly is much more damaging to minors than accusing people over cartoons
- Trashing an artist ally stall at a con (I could be wrong about this, if so I apologies…)
- Harassing couples cosplayers that isn’t Klance
- Harrassing white Cosplayers for doing Lance, Allura, or Hunk
- Trying to prevent a Shaladin Zine from donating their proceeds to a charity
- Restricting creative freedom for artists and writers
- Restricting people’s freedom to ship, even when platonic

Shaladins/other parties
- Also sending death threats and whatnot out of retaliation
- Accusing all Klance shippers are anti’s
- Empty threat of sending a virus to every anti
- Small handful ARE making legitimately problematic material

I’m trying not to be bias, I’m literally going off on all the shitty actions I have seen/heard, if any of these are wrong, or there’s things I’ve missed out on on either sides, please tell me or add on.
But yeah, I needed to just put this whole drama nonsense into perspective, and hopefully an eye opener for everyone…

Routine (Part 3)

(Camboy AU Parts 1 and 2)

Pairing: Kagehina (NSFW)
Show: Haikyuu!! 
Summary: 

“—it’s three o’clock,” Kageyama says, “on a Thursday. I don’t want beer, I don’t want juice. I want to know why you’re—” he gestures vaguely to Hinata’s whole, squirming torso, “—doing that. What, you got worms? Do you—did you catch something? Have you given me crabs because I swear to god—”

Hinata balks, waving his hands in the space between them to shut Kageyama up.

No, oh my god. I don’t—I don’t have worms, or crabs, or any other…parasites. I’ve just got this, and I’m super excited about it.”

This, as it turns out, is a rumpled piece of paper. Hinata holds it flat on his palm, flicking his eyes between it and Kageyama’s face. He hops a little on his toes, and pushes his hand right up under kageyama’s nose.

“It’s a list!” He goes on. “I thought about it all after our first time, but there was just so much stuff I didn’t wanna forget, so last night, I finally wrote it all down!”

Kageyama blinks down at the wad of paper.

“A…list,” he says slowly. Hinata nods, frantic. “A list of what?”

“Things we can try! Like, you know, sex stuff.”

Hi, I have a headcanon that Gaston has a few battle scars from the war, and uses them to gloat to the ladies about in the form of, “Want to know how I got this one?” And he flexes his arm and shows them the scar and it usually leaves the girls fainting and in a frenzy and then you come along and you’re like “what the heck” and you literally dig into him and say “I bet you got that falling down a flight of stairs, not from wrestling with a bear in the woods.”

And Gaston is literally so flabbergasted by your blunt statement and analysis and he takes it upon himself to crack you open. He’s always up for a challenge.

anonymous asked:

May I ask you for a one shot about what Ignis or Nyx would say or do to make their s/o be less hard on themselves? Their s/o would think they didn't deserve their bf, always thought that they weren't good enough for anyone, not putting enough effort into their jobs and didn't think people truly liked them. (I just have to say that you write bloody amazingly <3)

I decided to just write Nyx for this one, because I am in desperate need of more Nyx content. Don’t kill me for where I left the ending! That’s all I’m gonna say. Read on!

You watched him as he laid next to you on the bed, summoning fire idly in his palm. He would call it forth and then make it vanish, and you could feel the heat warming your skin. You wondered what it felt like to caress the flames.

“Nyx?”

The fire died, and he turned to look at you. “Yeah?”

You stared at him for a second, soaking in all of his features. The blue of his eyes, the angle of his jaw, the light fuzz that ran along the lower half of his face. You looked away.

“I don’t know how you do it.”

He cocked an eyebrow, rolling over to his side and leaning up on his elbow to look at you. “Do what?”

You sighed and made a sweeping gesture. “All of it. You’re part of the Kingsglaive, you’re a hero, you save lives every day. You’re…you’re just so loyal and kind hearted and perfect.” You sank a little further into the bed, pulling the sheets up to your chin. “I don’t know what you see in someone like me.”

Nyx sat up and tugged the sheets down so that you couldn’t hide.

“Don’t say that.”

You turned away from him. “It’s true.”

Nyx brought his hand to your face and turned you so that you met his eyes. “What’s got you thinking like this?” He asked, his voice barely above a whisper.

Your breath started to hitch. You couldn’t help it.

“I just…you’re just so perfect. You’re a hero, Nyx. And I just…I’m no one. Half the time, I don’t even know if the people around me even like me or are just using me because I don’t know how to say no.”

Nyx was quiet for a moment. His eyes were so clear, so honest in their truth. “I like you.”

You blinked back tears. “Why?”

Nyx smiled at you, tracing your jawline with his calloused fingers. “Remember that time we went to go get ice cream at that place close to the palace, and you saw those two kids in the shop who couldn’t afford to pay?”

You furrowed your brow. “Yeah…?”

“You bought them each so much ice cream that I thought they were going to turn into sugar cones and roll away. And then you invited them to hang out with us and bought them balloon animals in the park.”

You shook your head. “Anyone would have done that for those kids. They looked so sad.”

Nyx shook his head. “No, not everyone would have. But you did. You have a beautiful heart and you care so much about the people around you. Hell, you care about people who don’t deserve it. That’s how someone like you got stuck with someone like me.”

You frowned. “Nyx—”

He cut you off with a kiss, his hand on the back of your neck as he pulled you to him. His lips were always so soft, and you let out a quiet moan as his tongue slid against yours. He finally pulled away, leaving you breathless and panting.

“I love you,” he said, looking you right in the eye. “I don’t want perfection. I don’t want the pomp and frills. I just want you. I’ve always wanted you. Don’t ever for a second forget that.”

You gave a meek nod, and he kissed you again. This time though, he rolled so that he was on top of you, and you gasped against his lips as you felt his erection poking the base of your stomach.

“Now, why don’t you let me ease those worries away, babe?” he grinned wolfishly, nipping at your neck before running his tongue along where his teeth bit into you. “I’ll make you forget everything except my name.”

THE NEXT CROSSOVER SHOULD BE THE WESTALLEN WEDDING!!!

So Barry and Iris have done every trope at least twice (confessions of love, first kisses, proposals), let’s keep that up with their wedding. 

I want the Legends, Team Arrow, and Team Supergirl to come to CC for the wedding. I want all the females being Iris’s bridesmaids. I wanted freaking Linda to be the maid of honor. I want Oliver talking to Barry about how he was wrong saying guys like them don’t get the girl. I want some end of the world thing to happen as Iris is walking down the aisle and they all run outside to see what it is. I want Barry to pull Iris close because god fucking damn it he can and will protect her. I want the villians to be fucking good and I want there to a shit ton of fighting. I want Barry to almost die and Iris go off on someone (preferably Oliver because why the fuck not) about how he is the love of her life, she almost died with Savitar, but she would not lose him on their wedding day. 

I want everyone fighting tooth and nail. I want them to save the day. Then I want there to be a scene where Barry and Iris are holding hands, exchanging vows, (mostly coming from Iris because Barry tells her his every other episode at this point). I want there to be an after party scene where Cisco makes a speech about Barry being a stubborn ass and Iris not being much better, and god help all of them should they ever have kids. 

Then I want it to end with Barry and Iris waving people goodbye. She looks at him with the biggest grin and says,” So what happens now, Flash?”

And he says,” Whatever comes next, Mrs. West-Allen.”

i made a wild discovery today

In 2003-2005, there was a guy on BZP who made bionicle sprite comics. I don’t want to say what they were about since I don’t want to risk the 0.01% chance he’ll find this, but his comics are still out there.

When I was around 7-8 years old, I loved his comics. I thought they were the funniest stuff I ever read. I loved them so much, in fact, that I used to private message him all the time. I can’t bring myself to re-read our conversations, but I know that I could barely form complete sentences, and he did a very polite job handling a stupid barely-sentient child. I even used to make him a guest star in my old comics, because I considered us best friends for no reason. I think it’s because I just wished we were(I was a lonely child).

Fast forward to over a decade later. I just happened to remember he existed and started reading his comics over the past few days. I would leave the bricklink tab open, and before I went to sleep I’d read a couple comics. I finished today, and through sheer curiosity, used my NSA skills(google) to see if he was still around. I found him.

He works as a graphic designer for Lego, and even got one of his MOC designs to be an official Lego set. He also worked on the Lego movie and a whole list of other Lego themes and media.

I can’t believe it. The same guy I used to pretend was my best friend when I was 7 years old ended up working for Lego. After years of wondering if he was even still alive, I just found out that he’s living his dreams.

It’s been 14 years and I’m still in awe of him.

I ventured out into the world today to buy groceries and attend a work meeting. That may seem like a small accomplishment but because I have to keep my phallus elevated as much as possible it’s made going outside (and walking in general) difficult. For the most part I’ve been pretty confined to wherever I’m staying and so leaving the house, even for a short trip, is a big step recovery-wise and a welcome change.

Attending the work meeting also reminded me how much I care about and value the people I work with. From the time I pulled up to the time I left I had coworkers right by my side helping me walk, asking if needed anything, asking if had enough food at home, checking in about if I needed more time off, welcoming me back, saying they really missed having me there, etc. They don’t know what surgeries I’ve had, just that I’m young and have had a lot of them, and they never ask either. They didn’t even know I was coming to this meeting. They just care about my wellbeing and if there’s anything that can be done to help the recovery process. One of them even started making a scar cream for my arm after we had a discussion about how it was healing a few months post-op.

Thank you to everyone who sent such lovely messages to me, (I read them all, thank you so much 💙) and I am overwhelmed by how kind you all are! I don’t know what I did to deserve all of this, but I am so thankful for each and every one of you.

Some people have asked what is wrong (thank you for your concern!) but I am not going to answer that in detail because it’s a personal matter. I’ll just say that I have dealt with my illness for a long time and some days are better than others. It is nothing for you to be concerned about, I am okay!

I’m going to rest for the rest of the day and be back up and running the blog bright and early tomorrow! Thank you for understanding and for your well wishes, it means a lot to me. 💙

C: I am 27 years old and everyone i know always says that I’m pretty or beautiful or whatever. But I don’t believe them. No guy has ever come up to me and said i was beautiful. My ex was a compulsive liar so I don’t believe what he used to say about me. I’m never the girl that gets the guy she wants. And time is ticking and I’m just tired. I want to get married and start a family but idk. Im also a virgin. And it’s just frustrating. I feel like I’m waiting for nothing.

im looking at you rpc

stop making graphic commissions if you don’t have permission to use those resources. With resources I mean fonts, textures, stocks etc. This is SPECIFICALLY meant for those who ask real money for their graphics.

No, I don’t care about the whole “BUT I NEED MONEY” because it’s not an excuse. You can still be a decent person and ask for a permission if that’s what you need. In most of the cases these people say it’s okay to use their resources free for PERSONAL use but NOT FOR SELLING. Usually, these makers ask for some type of payment if you’re using them to make money. You can’t just go to google, pick a picture you like and use it in a graphic someone is paying for.

DO YOUR RESEARCH. MAKE SURE THE MAKER ALLOWS THOSE RESOURCES BEING USED THAT WAY.

Why do I care so much you might wonder?? because the people who make these things shouldn’t be taken for granted. Making fonts, textures and stocks might be a way for someone to earn their money. And whenever you’re taking them without even reading their rules on how you can use them, YOU ARE HURTING THEM. ONCE THEY NOTICE YOU’RE TAKING SHIT FROM THEM FOR FREE TO SELL THEM THEN THEY MIGHT STOP MAKING THESE RESOURCES.

Not only that but it’s a legal thing too. You don’t just go to some store and instead of grabbing the free sample, you take the whole product that you’re supposed to pay for.

Be decent to fellow content makers. Please.

Let's shit talk about people *grabs whine* this should be fun

Dark blinked, the motion sultry in the same sense that lemon was sweet. He brought a hand to the cleft of his neck, and rested his fingers there in some type of formal pose one might make when their being drawn. He remained in such a way as he spoke.

“And who deserves such shit talking that has already not been talked so poorly about?”

He chuffed, a sort of sigh snort.

“No one sparks enough of my interest to waste my time rambling about them. Using my own precious voice for their attention is too great a gift for some people. I would rather loathe them from afar and allow them to make their own decisions, course their own path, and see what fate has in store for them. Besides… Have we all not been talked down upon enough? One more addition to the pile is rather meaningless, and crude to say the least. Perhaps attempting to speak in respect towards one another is the entire remedy to everyone being so upset all the time.”

Karamel Shippers: mon el storyline is about redemption.

Are you kidding me? M'gann storyline was about redemption! She knew what her people was doing was wrong so she went against them to save as many innocents as she could and then she had to come back to her planet to face a death sentence because she didn’t believe in the things they do. She grow up in that enviroment and she dicided to be different, to be better, to be good. Mon ew is a fucking joke.

Wildflowers

The coolest spirit communication experience I have ever had was walking next to a lake at college and talking to wildflowers.

The wildflowers each individually had something to say, and it was usually repetitive and meaningless. Some were screaming “yellow!” and some were just saying “hmm”. The variances were endless. 

The coolest part was opening up my vision to the millions of wildflowers in the area around the lake, hearing all of them at once, and then hearing all their voices come together to form a story and a single entity.

This spirit, that was made up of all the individual wildflowers, gave me the happiest feeling that continued for days. And for a second, I knew everything about what they have heard, what they had learned, and what they know. And then it was gone because, that is not the spirits priority! It is Wildflowers. 

megachrome  asked:

what's hilarious about the whole brother line is that it offically discredits any chance of shiro and keith being related by blood/and or adopted siblings, like i have a brother and i don't tell him he's "like" a brother. no, buddy, pal he IS my brother. and little do they know that feelings!!! change!!! often!!! and let's say sheith never becomes canon, doesn't mean people will stop shipping them lolol. korra and asami are canon yet people still ship korra and mako, antis are getting desperate.

EXACTLY!!! i have a brother too but i dont even tell him he’s “like” a brother to me, it makes no sENSE. antis tbh are ridiculous, they like clinging onto things bc they can’t get their heads out of the asses and move on

anonymous asked:

I think kekashi is one of the worst teachers.he favored sasuke because they were 'alike' and then when he was gone he went on to naruto.And sakura got completely ignored,kekashi never taught her a jutsu.And don't say she already had tsunade,cus naruto had the pervert teacher and Sasuke had orochimoru.Yet he helped both of them.Plus he coddled her by telling her lies about how sasuke was fine when he knew Damn well something was up.He saw her as a baby to be coddled and protected,what faith.

*Sigh*, not this again…

Yes, he trained Sasuke because they were alike, but remember that Sasuke was still part of the Chuunin exams, he was training him for his upcoming battle against Gaara. Sakura was no longer part of the exams by that point.

I also really don’t get why this is so unforgivable. Gai almost exclusively trains Lee for that very same reason; because they’re alike. Yet I don’t hear anybody hating on Gai, saying how he ignored Neji and Tenten. Neji often trained with Hinata and Hiashi because they were alike; they were family, they knew their fighting style, and so would yield better results.

Now, because of Sasuke’s circumstances regarding his growing darkness towards the end of Part 1, Kakashi was always gonna give him a little more attention during that time period, in order to try and deter him away from that path. However, as they were similar, it makes sense that he’d opt to train Sasuke in particular, because he felt as though that would yield the best results, because they’d be able to focus on Sasuke’s particular talents.

It’s not the job of a Sensei to be constantly training their students and teaching them new techniques. Their role is to guide their students along the path of being a shinobi, by teaching them what’s truly important, teaching them the proper codes of conduct, and the moral philosophies, and Kakashi always did that. He did it as early as the Bell Test:

Also Kakashi always monitored Sakura’s growth and potential, which is also what a Sensei is supposed to do. While observing Sakura’s fight with Ino, Kakashi acknowledged her skills and complimented her abilities, as he very bluntly said that her chakra control skills surpassed that of Naruto:

And he even says that she’s above his ”favourite”, Sasuke in that regard:

He therefore obviously always had faith in her abilities. This was again proven at the beginning of Part 2 where he predicted that she’d eventually surpass Tsunade, which she did. So yeah, I think to say that he ignored her isn’t giving Kakashi enough credit. Kakashi was closely monitoring her development, as he did for each member of his team. He may not have actively trained all of them, but the attention was there.

Furthermore, Kakashi only trained Naruto because the latter was trying to infuse the Rasengan with his wind nature. It was specialised training that only Naruto could do due to the fact that he already knew that Rasengan, and he had the chakra reserves necessary to go through with the training. Not only that, but it was also fitting for Kakashi to have aided in the training since he also knew how to do the Rasengan. It’s not like Kakashi just ignored her or deemed her unworthy of training or something. It was specialised training:

This is just you being overly defensive of Sakura, because Kakashi has literally done nothing wrong to her. And as for your comment about how Kakashi apparently saw her as “a baby to be coddled and protected”, that’s just completely false. He was trying to remain positive about the situation, just like Naruto was, because they didn’t know the true extent of Sasuke’s darkness, so they truly believed that it would work out eventually. What he said to her wasn’t a lie if that’s what he believed was actually going to happen.

I'm not a native english speaker so noticing different accents is not that easy, but I've seen some other Irish people saying that Katie's accent doesn't sound 100% Irish sometimes and you said in another ask that Katie herself has mentioned it several times before. Has she mentioned why? And does her brother sounds like her? I've been trying to pay attention but to me british and irish sound REALLY similar so I can't tell them apart. I love they way she speaks no matter what. Just curious

Hey anon! Sorry for the delay. I have links for you, so I didn’t want to answer on mobile! To my knowledge, Katie has never mentioned any specifics about her accent other than the fact that is comes and goes. She has also mentioned that many people don’t believe she is Irish just from hearing her speak. She talks a bit about that in this article here. In my opinion, her brother’s accent seems a little thicker, but that could just be me. You can be the judge if you’d like to see a video of them together here!

But I am with you, her accent and voice are absolutely perfect!
