Also (this is pearls-changing-owners anon) thoughts on the fact that the Diamonds seem to only have one Pearl each? Pearls are treated as a status symbol, but a lot of status symbols can be cumulative (for instance, a hypothetical rich prat might take pride in owning ten entire lamborghinis, which makes him feel superior to people who only have one) and this seems like it's just a yes-or-no thing. Otherwise, you'd think the Diamonds of all gems would have more.

That’s a very good point to bring up! It’s something that I’ve talked about before on the blog. 

The point of Pearls, as much as they are a status symbol, is still to take part in service. And having more and more Pearls means that some of them are going to be rendered obsolete. Because Pearls open doors, scout ahead, perform, take calls, these are things that can reasonably be accomplished by one gem taking the role of secretary or Personal Assistant.

And I think that’s because it’s just plain wasteful to have gems do nothing. It was the entire point Yellow Diamond brought up in “What’s the Use of Feeling (Blue)?” and it’s a central tenet of Homeworld’s value system.

Another good point you make is how some status symbols can be cumulative. But it’s not something that’s seen on Homeworld. The Diamonds have one ship, one palanquin, one Pearl. Their status lies in their huge size, their age, and their rumoured power (I mean, we’ve never actually seen them do anything).

These symbols move from the material to the more formal. They’re things that quite literally can’t be earned by anyone else. The social structure is set such that the Diamonds inherently are powerful. They’re powerful because they’re the Diamonds.

Something in the past proved to gems that the Diamonds were as Peridot puts it, “objectively superior.” But more and more we’re seeing that cast into doubt, because the Diamonds err; they make mistakes and get emotional. If they were truly objectively better, it’s something we haven’t seen yet, but following Homeworld’s value system, they must have done something of use.

I'm going to cosplay as America-san at my school. Give me your all the tips senpai!i!i! (ノ´ヮ´)ノ*:・゚✧

Well if you really want ‘tips’ please don’t do this…

I get if cosplay makes you happy and you like doing it. But please don’t do it at school. Kids are rough man. Please don’t do it to yourself. Cosplay at home…or with your friends. You might think it’s a good idea now, but TRUST ME when I say it’s not! Kids are too mean and there’s no reason to put yourself through that.

i really really super hope that this doesn't come across as patronizing or rude or anything hng but i just wanted to say that i came across your video about the tavros cosplay and until the the q&a i had no idea you're trans and you're so handsome and lovely and you're such a cOOL GUY

Oh hey, no worries! This isn’t patronizing at all. Tbh I pass like… probably 90% of the time now, so unless I’m specifically telling someone I’m transgender it’s not usually something that comes up. 

I thought really hard about not mentioning I was trans EVER in any of my videos, because I was afraid of the response I might get. Really glad I overcame that fear, though. It means a lot to me that there are people referring to my videos as “safe places” for the LGBTQ+ community. 

I’m rambling. Anyway, thanks! <3

SO WHAT ABOUT NICO & DREW NOW I'M CURIOUS??

THANK YOU SO MUCH I’M SO GLAD YOU ASKED!!!

  • It all started with the lesbian flirting with the gay
  • Haha so really I headcanon that Nico quickly got taken over by his feelings aka his crush on a certain son of Apllo to change the fact he’s not self confident
  • So like MAKE OVER TIME
  • Hair isn’t cut just trimmed and cleaned- no more grease for that greaser if you know what I mean 
  • Then like DANG he’s actually pretty hot when he’s cleaned up - thought all the boys and girls. Except Will, because he already knew.
  • That combined with the smile he’s been giving- Drew knows he’s HER type.
  • Except she doesn’t know that she only likes badass intimidating GIRLS (Now I wanna be asked about my Drew*Thalia*Reyna shipping too- please? Pleeeassee?)
  • So she walks up says ‘Damn I might end up with the future in laws, Mr Hades himself, all too soon for telling such a bad pun… But, you, son of Hades your drop dead-“
  • "Gay? Thanks. I mean I’m not currently happy cause that pun was awful but I do like guys." 
  • So like BAM
  • Drew has found a best friend - and Nico has found someone who will take his bitter moods
  • So he starts to hang out with Drew and she helps him figure out his feelings. And when she describes pretty well how it must feel to be gay she’s realized she’s been staring at Lou Ellen’s lips and Kayla’s hair too much to be hetero.
  • She actually goes out with Kayla for a bit before she comes out as gay in a storm when someone makes fun of Drew for being 'guy crazy’- which was just a mask.
  • And Nico high fives Drew as she kisses a grinning Kayla 
  • Nico starts to get into specifically BLACK nail paint because of Drew and she also helps him with flirting with boys and helps him find the music type he likes
  • She also defends anyone who makes fun of him for not being up to date
  • 'Your such a sucky emo trash Di Angelo- bet you don’t even know what that means- Drew what are you doing with that high heel?” - said victim number one
  • OH and it goes for Nico with Drew too
  • “Ha sure- your such a liar. Drew your straight get over it. How could you be a Aphrodite kid and so confused?  Wait what’s with the sword, handsome?” - a camper who will never do that again.
  • Let’s just say you’ll end up with permeant makeup all over your face or uncontrollable shiver and chills for a month.
  • You don’t wanna mess with either of them- or any one who’s LGBTAQ at camp because THEY WILL SERIOUSLY RELEASE HELL ON YOU. And the Doctor Solace isn’t gonna have much pity for you.
  • Everyone goes to them for shelter and advice its kinda funny and sweet.
  • They like knowing beforehand, so when they walk around they’ll be like “Did you notice Percy staring at Jason’s ass?” “Well did you see your sister checking out Annabeth upper half?” “NO WAY!” “And Jason leaned in pretty close when Percy wanted him to check some questions.” “You don’t mean overly close do you?” “I would say its Rom Com close” “ROM COM ClOSE SHIT Di Angelo!!!”
  • So yeah after hanging with Tanka Nico actually turns out to be sorta a gossip and loves chatting with Drew about the drama from the ghosts and camp and such. The things you’ll see from shadows…
  • Also they so teach each other languages- BFF GOALS.
  • Nico knows Italian and Drew wants to learn so she teaches him French so he can talk better with Jules Albert. 
Can we stop calling bad experiences abuse?

I see it all the time and I am just so … weary? Despite my 27 years, I feel like I need a grown up to explain it to me.

I know that I really should know better, but the line is seriously starting to blur for me and it seems like the line is different for everyone, so how do I tell what actual abuse is by now?
I always thought that abuse was something a bit more systematic (that might just be how I perceive it, though) or at least consistent, and when I see the word abuse, my mind usually drift to relationships between two people, because that is what I most often see referenced. 

I mean. I’ve seen the weirdest things on this site, and I’d like to think that my grasp on reality is so good that I’m not baited by random posts, and yet… 
One example is when I saw some anon write to a Supergirl blog, that they should stop posting stuff with Kara and Mon-El, because they didn’t want to give young girls the impression that abuse is okay… And my first thought was “Is this shit serious? What the hell did I miss?” 
Sure, the intentions sounds good, no doubt about that, but I feel like people (especially on this fucking site) just throw the word around needlessly, and … I feel like it really cheapens it a lot? I’m not sure if it’s just me, though.

And my second, and most prominent example, is why do people call Reylo (Kylo Ren/Rey, for the uninitiated) abusive? 
They “barely” interacted, if we’re being real with ourselves, and while Kylo Ren is a pretty bad guy, I wouldn’t say his actions and behaviour is abusive in the way that I feel like most people want them to be, i.e. the relationship-way.
I’ve seen people say that the whole ship is a trigger for them, which is a pretty serious thing and if that were me, I would blacklist that shit as quickly as possible and hope that people would tag their posts correctly. 

I feel like more people would scream about abuse if it was Kylo Ren and Poe Dameron people were shipping. But surprise, they’re not. 
I can only speak about that I see, of course, and I don’t want to put words into people’s mouths, but I feel like a lot of people say it’s abusive, simply because they don’t like it and that’s their way of justifying that. Again, I could be wrong, but that’s how I see it.

I feel like this post was a bit incoherent and not very … collected. I’m sorry for that, but hopefully some points got across. If not, my inbox is open!

Do you agree? Disagree? Either way, tell me about it and educate me, please!

anonymous asked:

So this time last year I had a ginormous crush on a girl in my anatomy class but now I'm in a great relationship with this guy I've been friends with for years. But now I'm looking back to last year and Im doubting if i really had a crush on that girl and I'm wondering if I'm bi/straight/gay whatever. Do you have any advice on how you figured out your orientation, because I'm at a loss

not overthinking is a great start but i know it’s impossible.

this might be long but maybe my experience will help you understand your feelings?

for me it was basically realizing that the “crushes” that i thought i had on boys when i was younger was literally me trying to find a reason to like a boy, because i knew that i was supposed to, so it would be all the superficial things like “i like his outfit”/”his hair is nice”/”he talked to me once and wasn’t a complete asshole, i guess i’m in love with him now”

but that would all be so superficial and when i actually talked to any of those boys i knew that i had absolutely no real feelings for them. and god forbid any of them liked me, i would suddenly make excuses as to why i don’t like him and be like “i like that other one, the one who never spoke to me and probably never will” bc having a crush on an idea of a boy was the realest i could get. having an actual crush on an actual boy? nah.

but then at UNI, after i’ve learned that girls can actually love other girls romantically, i allowed myself the possibility of having those feelings. and i fell in love for the first time.

and then i realized that the attraction i felt for that girl was what i felt for other girls before, but i was never able to recognize it for what it was. i also noticed that it was the kind of attraction and affection that i never felt for boys.

after that, my friend set me up with one of her cousins (a boy) and he was kind of cute so i wanted to try that out, but i knew from the very start that i don’t feel for him what he felt for me. i had fun on the first two dates when we would just talk as friends. but as soon as we kissed it was a nightmare, i didn’t want that.

————–

about your crushes tho, just because you’re attracted to a boy now doesn’t mean that your attraction to that girl wasn’t valid. don’t pressure yourself to put a label on you (even tho i did that for myself, i really needed the comfort of a label). i think you’ll just know when you know.

my advice is that you should enjoy this relationship you have now with that nice boy. but keep an open mind and don’t limit yourself with labels. pick one if u need it for comfort, but know that people often change their label as they get to know themselves, and that’s totally okay. self-realization is a long process and we change and we grow and learn our likes and dislikes. the one important thing u need to keep in mind is that one day you’ll just know for sure. maybe that can give you some kind of comfort i hope :)

Sounds like this has never been done before. I think this might have been there way of making sure whatever is coming isn't spoiled. This may very well be all about Beth's storyline returning!

heyyyyyy so, remember the thing I said I wasn’t going to do? yeah, I’m doing it


The stairwell door squeaked and rattled open and incredibly, the dream boy Chris had flung at him from the afterlife appeared in the angle of orange light, out of breath, casting around frantically, and apparently real, after all.  Maybe.  He was dressed, now, in a crop top and pegged jeans with suspenders, jacket tied around his waist, like he’d just walked off the set of a John Hughes film and onto Victor’s roof.

“There you are,” Yuuri said, and this might actually have been a scripted scene with the level of unwarranted worry in his voice.  He let the door fall closed and promptly shivered, untying the jacket from his waist and quickly huddling inside it.  “Jeez, it’s freezing.  I thought I told you not to go too far, Victor.”

Victor opted for the truth, looking Yuuri up and down once he was closer; his hair was even messier than before, and there was still glitter clinging to what skin was still showing.  “I thought I dreamed you.”

Yuuri laughed and it was beautiful–his eyes curved at the corners and sparkled.  “Under any other circumstances that would be a terrible pick up line.”

“You did kind of fall out of the sky onto my lap, nearly naked,” Victor said, perfectly reasonable, shrugging.  “And now you burst onto my roof dressed like Cameron Frye.  I’m still not convinced you aren’t a dream.”

Yuuri hummed, hugged the jacket against his chest and crouched down to Victor’s level, rocking on his heels, teeth worrying his lower lip for a moment before he continued, shyly, “What should I do to convince you?”

Victor stuttered and laughed–a real laugh, one that reached all the way to his belly and the tips of his fingers.  Yuuri kept rocking, wan smile on his face while Victor laughed, until he reached over for Yuuri’s elbow and tugged him down onto his knees.  “I would never have thought I’d be so adorably flirted with by a stripper.”

“Erotic dancer,” Yuuri corrected automatically.

“Sorry.  Erotic dancer, Yuuri—”

“Katsuki.”

“Erotic dancer Yuuri Kastuki, asking for a kiss as though he’s never done such a thing before.”  Victor plucked at Yuuri’s sleeve, teasing, until his smile reached his eyes again.  “You are actually a dream, right?  If you kiss me, will I wake up?”  Or would he dream deeper?  Victor traced the curves of Yuuri’s face with his eyes, pulled on his arm again, but Yuuri didn’t budge.

“Come back downstairs.”

Victor shook his head, rolling side to side against the surface of the brick vent and Yuuri shuffled on his knees, eyebrows drawing together.  “Don’t want to.”

“I was worried about you, you know?  Mila was worried.  Look,” Yuuri drew his hands out from where they were tucked under his arms and pressed them against Victor’s cheeks.  His fingers were incredibly warm in contrast to the cold, and Victor closed his eyes.  “You’re gonna freeze out here.  Come on inside and get to bed.  I’ll even stay with you, if you want.”

“I want to watch the sunrise,” Victor said, covering Yuuri’s fingers with his own and pressing them closer, turning his face into the touch.

Yuuri was silent for a while, and when Victor opened his eyes his head was turned, scanning the horizon where dawn was just starting to brighten the sky to gray.  He heaved a sigh that made his shoulders sag, momentarily, and when he turned back he paused just long enough that Victor got a perfect view of his profile, glasses perched on his nose, lips slightly parted, gaze briefly distant and sad before he turned fully back to Victor and whatever thought or feeling had been there dissolved into a soft, indulgent smile.  “Alright.  Lets warm up a bit, though.  Get up.”

The thing I want more to happen in the framework is Fitz getting a monkey. A little one like Ross' Marcel, or even better: a fully dressed chimpanzee like Michael Jackson's Bubbles. Please, give us that pleasure

Hi @mariaapple

You know I hadn’t thought about his until I saw your ask!   And yes, this is totally how we can see Fitz get his monkey.  Heck if he’s as rich as he looks he can have a whole bunch of them.  But also this version of Fitz might not care for him….all depends on what AIDA did to him.

anonymous asked:

What's your opinion on paladins in Pillars of Eternity? Mechanically and flavorfully speaking? I was reading up on builds for clerics and some people were saying they're a shittier version of the fighter. Also that Lay on Hands was useless and that's probably what got me extra salty. It also got me thinking on your opinion oh Master Of The Smite. I for one love everything about them and would play a paladin every play-through if I didn't want to also branch out in the religious class department.

Mechanically I liked them, but only really got into it when you reach the higher levels and you have a wider range of abilities at your disposal. I can’t recall the name right now, but my favorite ability was the power to essentially turn your paladin into a wave of pulsing holy fire that damaged enemies and healed the party in turn.

As for the flavor I wrote something a while back that you might enjoy reading. My thoughts on all the Paladins of Eora

Um, excuse me, but if it wasn't for Talos and his imperialist nature, everyone would have killed each other awhile ago. Nords as we all know like to fight every thing in sight, includin each other. Same with the green pigs. Then there are the uppity Redguards who just go around taking whatever isn't theirs, and then got a taste of their own medicine.Dark elves are a bunch of heretics even now. Bosmer were ENTIRELY savages before. Altmer killed off humans. Don't even get me started on the Beasts.

I thought this was satire for a minute lol

Still might be but assuming not…

Tamriel is the Arena. It isn’t our world. I get that. However, you’re wrong about everyone killing each other off. There were skirmishes here and there, but overall the majority of the different races kept to themselves, and were stronger for it when they did fight or raid. The worst was what happened to the snow elves who brought that on themselves.

The Redguards literally just took the biggest piece of shit spot in Tamriel and made a home out of it where no one else could, and no one was really committed to trying.

Aside from that, all they do is fight themselves and the Orcs alongside the Bretons who both hate them.

And the best part? This all still goes on under Tiber Septim’s Empire. So does slavery, so does border disputes, Orsinium getting sacked, all of it. The Imperial Legion did very little to stop conflict as we learned from Nels the Naughty, and as I pointed out in my Stormcloak Bible, the devs tell us through a Dunmer “heretic” as you call them that the Empire had very little if any use.

Their sole purpose in the series was to uphold Akatosh’s pact, which kept Daedra from pouring into Nirn, but thanks to Martin Septim, the pact is no longer needed, and neither is Tiber Septim’s legacy of Imperialism.

And if it wasn’t for said Imperialism, the Altmer of Alinor would have continued to live in blissful isolation. Despite what you may think of the time before the Empire, Imperialism did absolutely nothing to prevent any of it and still doesn’t.

You don't have to if you don't want to, obv, just thought it might make your life easier uwu Love the job you're doing, btw! You're great <3

Ah, this is a very good idea, but my inbox is so packed I feel like it’d be a burden to go through all of it ^^

I have over 550 requests, I myself lost track of it, it’s a bit embarrassing >///<’‘

I will think about it though, because I really like the idea! I just need to make sure I find some free time :3

It occurs to me that as much as “humans are the scary ones” fits sometimes, if you look at it another way, humans might seem like the absurdly friendly or curious ones.

I mean, who looked at an elephant, gigantic creature thoroughly capable of killing someone if it has to, and thought “I’m gonna ride on that thing!”?

And put a human near any canine predator and there’s a strong chance of said human yelling “PUPPY!” and initiating playful interaction with it.

And what about the people who look at whales, bigger than basically everything else, and decide “I’m gonna swim with our splashy danger friends!”

Heck, for all we know, humans might run into the scariest, toughest aliens out there and say “Heck with it. I’m gonna hug ‘em.”

“Why?!”

“I dunno. I gotta hug 'em.”

And it’s like the first friendly interaction the species has had in forever so suddenly humanity has a bunch of big scary friends.

A Holiday Story

So this is a Chistmas story my mom told me while I was home recently and i thought y’all might enjoy.

So, one Christmas back in the 60′s, my great-grandmother was reminiscing about Christmas in England, and how they used to have pheasant for Christmas, but Ohio sucks and they’d never get to do something like that.

Well Shit!  goes my grandfather,  them woods are full of pheasants, I’ll get you one.  So grandpa and a dubiously related man named “uncle popeye” went out with shotguns to get great-grandma a pheasant for Christmas dinner.

They’re gone for a LONG time.  according to mom, they were basically expecting grandpa and Popeye to be gone for a few hours and come back with a store-bought chicken and apologies.

Instead, they come back eight hours later, covered in mud and freezing cold from the Cleveland winter, but Surprise!  they have a Pheasant.  Great-grandma gives them a lecture about staying out so long and worrying her, but agrees to dress the bird so they can all have a traditional English Roast Pheasant.   Grandpa and Popeye retire to the living room to drink beer and talk about what great woodsmen they are when Great-grandma screams from the kitchen.

“TOM!!”  She bellows and literally every male in the house jumps because literally every man has been named “Tom” for three generations at that point. 
“THERE’S NO BULLET HOLE IN THIS BIRD.”

They both look massively sheepish and eventually admit that they hadn’t had much luck finding pheasants in the woods and were about to go to the store to get her a chicken when they… backed over the pheasant.

“Then what were you idiots doing in the woods for eight hours?”

“We weren’t out there for THAT long-” Popeye starts before grandpa decks him.   
Grandma and Great-grandma have to menace them with wooden spoons to get the truth out, but eventually they take thier oversize hiking boots off to reveal bandages.

Turns out they had only been in the woods for Two hours looking for pheasants before LITERALLY tripping over one, and they both reflexively aim at the ground and… Shoot each other in the foot.  They hadn’t backed over the Pheasant in the woods.  They’d backed over it in the Hospital parking lot.

And that’s the story of how my great-grandmother made a Roast Pheasant and the ladies of the house got to eat the whole thing while Grandpa and Popey had to watch.
