anything that can help

Season 9 - Ep 20 - Sneak Peek

Written by: @castleincalifornia

Castle looked to his wife, genuine distress written out across his face. “But… but… our fort! And our marathon! And snacks. And making out! Kaaaaate…” he whined, shaking his head at the idea of abandoning their plans for the day. But at the same time, who were they to deny Martha help when she needed it? She would drop everything for them, and they knew it.

Kate reached over to squeeze his hand. “It’s okay, babe, really. Rain check, I promise. Go help, if you can.”

He sighed in resignation. “Promise me you’ll relax? I’ll keep you updated?”

“Yes, I’ll take it easy. And yes, please let me know if there’s anything I can do. Martha? Can I help you at all?”

Martha’s smile was watery, and she suddenly looked very tired considering it was only ten in the morning. “No, dear. I promised Marnie I’d meet her down at the precinct, so I’ll just catch a cab. You need to rest, here at home.”

Kate pursed her lips in frustration. Her maternity leave was supposed to be a welcome reprieve, but now she found herself wondering how 1PP would feel about her working just this one case?

“Kate.” She turned to find Castle shaking his head. Damn it. Of course he knew what she was thinking. “Stay. Please. I promise, I’ll keep you updated and I won’t stay away any longer than necessary.”

“I know, I just… I know.” And she really did; she understood. She was officially on leave from the NYPD. She wouldn’t risk the investigation by inserting herself in an unauthorized capacity. “Hurry home, babe.”

Do you know where dallon gets his sweaters and jumpers from? Or just where he shops at all? I've seen him wear a few things that I like and I've looked everywhere for something similar (not looking for the exact same one just the same style) and I can't find anything even close, can you help?

Hm, he’s definitely worn some stuff from Zara. The Leave Me Alone jacket and the silver jacket he wore for the IDK performances are from Zara.
But besides that I don’t really know, sorry :/

How's this for breaking stereotypes: my friend is 100% a ESTJ but she cries during every movie we have ever watched, even when we went to see Moana !

That is pretty stereotype breaking and also kind of adorable.

I actually find it way easier to cry at movies than at life, and before I knew about MBTI I articulated it in a really Te-user way, in that I can’t do anything to help the situation of the characters onscreen, but if something terrible happens in my actual life my first reaction is “what action can I take.” Which means that unless it’s in response to something where I truly can’t do anything (like…death or something) I tend to hold off on the crying until I’m somewhere private and have the time to deal with feelings.

Also as a much simpler reason, movies tend to optimize the emotion, which is good - it’s what they’re supposed to do - but it means that it’s easier to get sucked into it because there’s this perfect soundtrack and cinematography and no awkward distractions and real-life stuff. And finally, the nice thing about movies, especially for people with not-so-great Fi, is that you’re encouraged to relate to the characters because they’re not real and so you’re not forcing yourself into this situation and saying “oh yes, your pain is just like my pain, let’s make it about me”.


So I’ve seen a few people ask for help and here and be successful so I figured I’d give it a shot!

I’m a 3rd year pre-med student. I recently changed my major and in order to graduate on time I need to take summer classes. My financial aid doesn’t cover all of it and the books are hella expensive. I need to register by the end of the week and pay tuition in full but I’m a few hundred dollars short.

If anyone is able to donate, I would greatly appreciate it. Of course I’ll give ya’ll something in return so if you donate you can receive masturbation videos + access to my premium snapchat

You can donate by sending money via Google wallet to! All you need is a Gmail email

Please please please help out if you can! Anything and everything is greatly appreciated ❤️

Hey amy! I just lost my dog, so i've had a bad week. Got any cute headcanons about Dami and his numerous pets?

  • I’m going to go ahead and assume that Damian names his favorite bats from the cave, and since Damian’s record on pet names is all over the place– some of them (Goliath, Titus) are dignified, while others (Batcow, Spotty the rat from B&R 13) are definitely not– I imagine the bat names get pretty interesting.
  • Damian: Antigone, Bonaparte, Ulysses, Jezebel, Scheherazade
  • Also Damian: Rita, Earl, Capitalism, Lemon, Bagel Bite
  • Alfred the cat has spyware in his collar. So far it’s been a useful and multipurpose investment, good for eavesdropping on both one’s family and unsuspecting criminals loitering in the parts of the city where a stray cat would go unnoticed. Conveniently, that is most of the city.
  • Titus sleeps at the end of Damian’s bed, for the death nightmares. It helps to have someone to hug.
  • There are also geese on the Manor grounds– they come in and out of the pond on the east side of the property– and Damian has been feeding them Cool Ranch Doritos for the past month as part of an experimental plot. That’s Tim’s brand of chips; if everything goes according to plan, the next time Tim takes a picnic lunch, he’ll be swarmed by expectant geese. It’s going to be hilarious.

Noct’s interaction with animals is what i live for (´▽`ʃƪ)


If anything, admitting when you don’t fully understand something displays curiosity for learning. So keep asking those questions!

Divination Tips for Beginners

Divination can be hard and draining, it takes up a lot of energy. For those who are still new to it, it can really drain you and result in headaches and frustrations. Here are some tips to help all you beginners out with divination and how draining it can be.

  • Drink plenty of water, being dehydrated is not fun and especially not when you are using so much energy
  • Take a shower or bath before any divination work to help cleanse yourself 
  • Meditate before big divination work to help center and ground yourself
  • Crystals good for divination and psychic work: nuummite, amethyst, amazonite, fluorite, and aqua aura quartz
  • Clear Quartz is a good energy booster and can help you feel less drained after divination
  • Drink some black tea to help ground yourself and give yourself extra energy for divination work
  • If you are starting to feel tired during divination, that is okay, take a break or take a nap. Forcing yourself to keep going will only exhaust you further and make everything more difficult. You deserve breaks
  • It is okay to use notes during divination, don’t worry what others say. Its not ‘unprofessional’, even veterans in divination use notes. Keep a notebook with you full of different meanings of cards or stones or runes, take notes as you go, write down your thoughts and keep it near you every time you practice.
  • Yellow is the color of divination, keep yellow things around you to help. Yellow blanket(s), yellow pillows, yellow candles, yellow pieces of paper; anything you can find. Purple is also another color good to help with psychic abilities and awareness
  • Herbs good for divination and psychic work: cinnamon, lemon, cherry, lettuce, grapes, orange (orange peel), mint, pumpkin, celery, lemon balm, catnip, thyme, rose, seaweed, star anise, mullein, mugwort and rosemary can all help you. Bake with them, eat them, use them in teas or keep them near you in a sachet or jar
  • Stretch and take little walks. Sitting for a long time can be killer and make you sore. Stretch your legs and take little five or ten minute walks during long readings and psychic work. Muscle and joint stiffness is never fun
  • Rather than trying to tackle large readings every day, do small ones. Like a few questions to your pendulum, pull a single card, draw a crystal from a bag, etc. Small daily practices can help you in the long run without exhausting you. 
  • Open a window and let some fresh air in while you work, it will do wonders, especially since air is the element associated with divination work.
  • Keep a small bowl or cup of salt near you, it will absorb the negative energy about you especially if you are feeling frustrated
  • Moon water is great for divination: drink it, make tea with it, spray the room with it, anoint yourself with it, keep it near you, etc
  • Cleanse your space before divination work, again it will keep negativity away from you 
  • Cleanse and charge your divination tools regularly, it really helps in the long run. Put them in the moonlight at night (especially during full moons), keep salt near them, smoke cleanse them if you can, burn white candles, use crystals/gems, etc
  • Its okay if you get confused and don’t know how to interpret something. Take notes on it and with time it may become more clear to you. Don’t force yourself to try to understand
  • Mistakes happen, you won’t always be 100% right on things. No one is, divination is not a certain thing. Things change all the time, its okay. Don’t let it get you down.
  • If you are tired, sick, stressed, or anything else and don’t feel like doing divination work that is fine. Its okay, you don’t have to do it all the time. Especially not if you are feeling unwell and tired. Rest and take care of yourself, you can continue practice another time
  • If you use tools in your work like mirrors, tea cups/mugs, cards, crystals, etc try to bond with them. Creating a bond with your tools can improve your divination quite a bit
  • You don’t have to practice on other people, you can do it for yourself and your own questions. Its an old wive’s tale that you can’t use tarot or divination on yourself, you definitely can
  • Try to get a good nights sleep before and after divination
  • Once you finish, treat yourself. Get something to eat, watch a movie or show you like, curl up with a book, snuggle into a blanket, play with your pets, take a nap; do whatever makes you happy. You did a good job and deserve some time to rest and recharge afterwards

Me: “If my choices in jeans are either ‘Skinny’ or 'Slim’, I don’t think so.”
Gap Guy: “We also have 'Athletic Stretch’…”
Me: “Does anything about my appearance indicate that I might be athletic?”
Gap Guy:
Gap Guy: “They’re our most, um, relaxed cut.”
Me: “So the 'Athletic’ cut is what you call your unathletic fat people pants now? Doesn’t that just seem wrong somehow?”
