Hello! :) Could you reply with 5 things that make you happy + send this to the last 10 people in your notes (if you want to)? :-)

1.) What I’m happiest about is, after over a month of waiting and tests and biopsies, we finally know more details about mom’s cancer diagnosis and treatment.

She has IDC (Invasive Ductal Carcinoma), the most common type of breast cancer. Surgery is in less than two weeks, normally she’d have to wait months but I’ve been told dad made a scene at the hospital :/ (which caused mom to break into tears) and they scheduled it earlier than normal. “What’s the point of discovering the cancer early if they take ages to get you into surgery?“ dad said.

Since some folks here asked me what type of surgery it’ll be, the doctor said they’ll only remove the tumor and part of the breast tissue surrounding it (the cut goes all the way down to the rib cage), as well as axillary (underarm) lymph nodes if needed, so cancer cells do not spread there where they can travel to the rest of the body.

Thank you again to everyone who’s sent me kind messages about mom! ♥♥♥ Keeping my fingers crossed surgery goes well. We don’t know the particulars about future chemo and radiation therapy yet but at least things are in motion. Thank goodness.

2.) Getting positive asks in my mailbox, they always cheer me up! Sometimes I can’t reply right away due to things happening offline (or if tumblr gives me upload problems and won’t let me put gifs into them, so irritating!) but I do it as soon as I can. Apologies to those who are still waiting!

3.) Movie and tv trailers (both watching and anticipating them), watching live streams of conventions (Star Wars Celebration!), youtube videos of people unpacking and deboxing their con merch and making appreciative noises, con exclusives like special types of figurines or pins or cool t-shirt designs, just seeing people happy over the swag they got. Living vicariously through other fans’ con experiences because I can’t be there myself. :)

4.) This might be a bit silly but those perfume tester strips you get for free with your purchase, I’ve discovered my fave perfume this way - Jungle by KENZO - and have worn it for many years. As a kid I had a little box to store the strips in and liked to fantasize about future me buying all the favourites. :)

5.) This pengweng penguin mom got me recently for my figurine collection, I didn’t have the version with the baby penguin yet, awww:

Thank you, mummy! Penguins remind me of a certain Belgian detective, ya know? ;) I have four penguins so far!

The Signs as Quotes From the Crystal Kingdom Arc
  • Aquarius: Hot diggity shit, that is a baller cookie.
  • Pisces: We don't know shit about history, what are you talking about? We can't remember what we're doing right now!
  • Aries: It seems like the least you could do after getting my ass thrown off the back of a moving train is see to my plants and my begonias and my fruits and my lilies.
  • Taurus: Those rules of nature are there for a reason, so let's just stop running afoul of them as if this was all just sort of funsy-fun make-believe, what do you say?
  • Gemini: I can't tell if you're joking, which is kind of par for the course.
  • Cancer: People say that about Thomas Edison a lot, like, he invented the lightbulb. But like, they didn't have 'em back then, right? So if I'd been around back then, that would've been easy for me. Because they didn't have lightbulbs, they didn't have anything. So like, inventing stuff was way easier. These days I'd have to invent, like, a double-lightbulb.

Imagine Woozi showing you his cute eye smile when you tell him that you’re happy to have met him.

I’ve been thinking lately about recovery from my eating disorder. For months on end, I was sure that I would relapse. It wasn’t that I wanted to or even felt that strong of urges, but more that it seemed to be a thing people did, and I was stressed and depressed, and had the opportunity to, so why wouldn’t I?

For whatever reason, though, I didn’t. I kept eating normally and all that jazz. I’m almost two years into recovery. I honestly take my functioning for granted; I’ve been learning math and classical Indian dance and languages. I have showed up on exchange as much as I could, and really implemented healthy coping skills.

I was just musing about the possibility of things going downhill this summer, and then my host mom knocked on my door to give me some ice cream. I was like, oh, ice cream, great! And then I ate it, end of story. Something my old dietitian said to me once was that I was afraid of both being okay and not okay, which is probably really apt. Relapse is always a possibility, and at least for me, right now, it would be a conscious choice. To quote @velvettruce, “I am afraid that I will fail at greater things than this.” The thing is, the stakes of my life are higher now.

The focus is not on my using behaviors, but how I can (potentially) use a postposition in Hindi. Expectations are higher, and I think that’s a good thing. The idea of maintaining recovery indefinitely is overwhelming, and yet, I might as well. Relapse would give me a break; it would be safe and familiar and what-have-you, but I want better for myself. I have proven, time and time again, that I’m willing to do what it takes in order to ensure that I have a future.

  • *Scene - Emma is drinking at Granny's when Regina sits beside her*
  • Regina: So Hook told you the truth...is that why you broke off the engagement?
  • Emma: No...I mean...it's horrible but if we were meant to be I could forgive it.
  • Regina: If?
  • Emma *sighs*: I can't help but think that were he the right person for me and I for him...if we were meant to be he would have trusted me. Instead he hid...I guess we don't have the trust I hoped we did.

I’ve been preparing for a Ye Olde SCA campout this weekend.

My technique in sewing medieval clothes without a paper pattern is a little involved, but I like being able to make a garment and have it fit perfectly the first time I put it on, without having to do a fitting even one time.

How do I do this? Two programs - MakeHuman and Marvelous Designer

- I made a perfect 3D model of myself in MakeHuman by using my measurements and height, following this tutorial

- I imported the creepily perfect 3D model of myself into Marvelous Designer.

- I took medieval patterns from the internet, traced them, and resized them to fit the perfect 3D model of me. Like this t-tunic.

or more complicated clothes:

- Cut out the fabric using the same dimensions, adding a seam allowance

- sew it together (correctly the first time, not wasting fabric)

The first time I made a t-tunic, it went over my head and fit perfectly. I made a t-tunic for my brother using this technique, and he didn’t have to be involved in the process at all except for putting it over his head and it fitting perfectly. 

The hard part would be cutting out the fabric for more complicated clothes, but with ancient/custom clothing like this, you’d have to find a way to do that anyway. With this program, you know at least that it’s going to fit your beautiful body, and there’s less chance of wasting expensive linen..

I was actually using this technique to make custom 3D clothing to fit a Skyrim character (a much more difficult and painstaking process), but then realized that the skillset of making 3D model clothes could be applied to real life. And now all I want to do is invent my own weirdly perfect wizard fashion clothes, or even just make custom normal clothes that fit me weirdly perfectly.

wolffoggirl said:Got7 reaction when their girlfriend wanted a morning kiss.

Oh my god yes cutecutecutecute

Mark:

All the kisses that you want! Would not care at all about morning breath, he would hug you very tightly sleepily and would love to wake up to you kissing him.

JB:

Would complain because one, breath smell and two “JAGI let me sleeeeeeep…” But in the end he would love that you wanted to kiss him even when you just woke up. He would feel loved and important and that would make him happy.

Jackson:

EXCITED little puppy would be so happy every single time you wanted to kiss him. He would feel like you like him a lot (which you do, let’s be honest why would you be with him if you didn’t) and that would excite him very much. He would even fangirl a bit and do aegyo but then he would remember his manly facade and be like “We can continue this after we have breakfast and brush our teeth, baby girl” I LOVE JACKSON SO MUCH

Jinyoung:

Would accept the kiss and then look at you like you nasty girl and complain about morning breath, and when you said he had morning breath too and that you didn’t care he would be all sulky and be like “I’m perfect, my mouth smells amazing every single moment.” but go brush his teeth and then kiss you softly.

Youngjae:

Sweet child would kiss you back and think for himself it would be more enjoyable if you both went to brush your teeth and maybe eat something, or cuddle in the sofa, but he honestly couldn’t say no to you and your kisses so he likes it nonetheless.

Bambam: DOUBLE B BIAS WRECKER LISTEN I FEEL SO MUCH FOR THIS KID

Bambam…? He makes everything into a joke, except when it’s something really serious, so I think he would joke around. Maybe not let you kiss him and rolling around with you in bed, would kiss your neck but never your lips, saying that it’s nasty. But in the end he would end up giving in and kissing you sweetly.

Yugyeom:

A little bit shy at first, caught off guard since he was sleepy and still actually waking up and realizing stuff he would stay still. But after that he would deepen the kiss and hug you, asking you if you could sleep or at least star a little more like that, together.

  • Cashier: I should've never taken this shift. Working this late is fucking me up.

  • Cashier: Do y'all even get customers this late, or is it early? I can't even tell at this point.
  • Cook: Sometimes.
  • Cashier: What kind of person even eats fast food at this time of night?
  • Cook: Mostly travelers, junkies, and such.
  • Cashier: Makes sense.
  • Disheveled dude: *presses face against the restaurant window*
  • Cashier: Eugh!
  • Cook: What's the matter?
  • Cashier: There's some gross dude outside. Oh no, he's coming in.
  • Disheveled dude: *runs into the restaurant carrying a suitcase*
  • Cashier: Hello, can I help you?
  • Disheveled dude: Yeah, yeah, let me get a burger. Large drink. Yeah, that's it.
  • Cashier: This is a Mexican restaurant, sir. We don't have burgers.
  • Disheveled dude: Just get me anything with a lot of meat.
  • Cashier: We need a triple stuffed burrito!
  • Cook: Got ya!
  • Cashier: Okay, that'll be $7.99.
  • Disheveled dude: *slams a wad of cash on the counter*
  • Cashier: This is like... thousands of dollars!
  • Disheveled dude: Keep the change.
  • Cashier: I, uhm... are you sure?
  • Disheveled dude: I just want my food. Make it fast, please. Thank you.
  • Cashier: *stuffing cash into their pockets* Got ya, dude. Hey, make it quick! This guy wants his burrito!
  • *the cook quickly finishes the burrito*
  • Disheveled dude: *aggressively devours his food, sometimes nervously looking over his shoulder*
  • Cashier: He's like one of those professional eaters. That's impressive.
  • Cook: It's disgusting. That burrito has like 1500 calories.
  • Cashier: I'll call anyone who hands me three months worth of checks for a single burrito impressive.
  • Cook: Yeah, about that... could I get some of that cash.
  • Cashier: I mean, a bit. He told me to keep the change.
  • Cook: Technically it's the restaurants money, so you shouldn't be taking any of it.
  • Cashier: Yeah.
  • Cook: Plus, I cooked the burrito.
  • Cashier: Alright, how about $500?
  • Cook: Only $500? Come on, man. You've got at least $10,000 there. Let's split it.
  • Disheveled dude: *hops the counter*
  • Cashier: *backs away*
  • Cook: Whoa, dude, you can't be back here.
  • Disheveled dude: I need to leave through the back. You guys, closing soon?
  • Cook: I don't know what you're on, dude, but the back is for employee's only.
  • Disheveled dude: *opens suitcase and tosses wads of cash at the cashier and cook* Extra tip gives me VIP status.

  • Cook: What!? You know we really can't leave with all this money, right?
  • Cashier: We can, and I am.
  • Cook: This could be drug money, or money from a bank heist. If we're caught with this stuff we could go to prison, or be killed.
  • Cashier: You didn't seem worried about it when you were hounding me for money just a few minutes ago.
  • Cook: That was then, and this is now. Nobody just gives money out like that unless there's something seriously wrong. It's dangerous for us to keep it.

  • Cashier: You shouldn't.
  • Cook: I bet it's nothing. I'll show you. I'll be right back. *disappears entirely into the void*
  • Cashier: Hey! Hey! Are you out there!?
  • *a pale hand appears out of the darkness and gently beckons for the cashier*
  • Cashier: *slams door shut* NOPE!
  • Cashier: *runs to the front counter*
  • Cashier: *is greeted by an all encompassing wall of blackness*
  • Wall: *encroaches on the cashier*
  • Cashier: *attempts to run away, but gray arms emerge from the darkness and wrap themselves around them*
  • Cook: *decapitated head rolls out of the wall of darkness, its eyes spinning in opposite directions* Told you that was bad money, dude.
  • Cashier: *screams as they're pulled into the darkness*
  • *elsewhere*

  • Driver: *obeys orders* Alright, don't shoot.
  • Disheveled guy: *tosses wad of cash at driver* That should cover the cost of a new car. I suggest you catch a bus and get out of here as soon as possible. *speeds off*

Do u have a theory on Mor and Hybern? Or is it just a thought because u don't have enough conclusive evidence? Either way I'd love to hear it! :)

Hi Nonnie, I have so many theories, but zero conclusive evidence. Aside from Amren we know the least about Mor. 

Theory 1: When she dropped the knife, it’s because the king responded to her attack and let a little more of that poison seep into Az’s heart. She knew that the king could kill Az in the time it would take her to kill the king. This theory would mean that Az and Mor are mates. 

Theory 2: Before you read this. If this is true I will SCREAM and put ACOWAR in time out. The king and Mor are mates. She physically cannot kill him, however that is borrowing from TOG mate behavior. It has not been confirmed in ACOTAR if mates are able to kill each other. 

Theory 3: We often get lost in Mor’s bubbly personality. Rhys calls Mor in when his armies, Az and Cassian fail. Please let that amount of power sink in for a single moment. 

Deep in my bones I believe it was just her and Miryam marched in The Black Land and freed those slaves. 

Mor’s power is truth when she speaks to the mortal queens “Truth is deadly. Truth is is freedom. Truth can break and mend and bind.”

I have a sneaky suspicion that at that very moment she feels a truth, a truth that killing the king could break or bind something she does not want.

Yeesss!! People, we are in season 7. I think by now the audience fully understands the bond that Daryl and Carol have. TPTB did NOT have to show their bond AGAIN just to show they care about one another. Valuable screen-time could have been given to Maggie. Remember her, Gimple? Don't get me started on that, lol. But for some reason, Gimple wanted to add another layer to the caryl story. And we all know what that reason will be. Well, at least most of us do, lol.

Exactly this. If tptb didn’t want so many people shipping Caryl, if they wanted us to give up and see that their bond was nothing more than familial and they’d never grow beyond their platonic relationship - then those Caryl scenes in episode 10 simply would not have existed. Or, they would have looked a lot different. 

To portray a strictly familial bond, all the writers would have needed to do was have Daryl happen upon Carol while he was out. They absolutely would not have needed to go to the extra lengths that they went to, like: having Daryl bring Carol up to Morgan and gush about how she would have saved all their asses and led them to war (showing that she’s on his mind and that he is missing her); creating the whole conflict between Daryl and Richard (it would have been way easier to just not include that whole showdown because it delivered absolutely nothing to the big plot); having Morgan confront Daryl in a way that has been used since forever as a romantic trope - showing a character’s feelings for another character, then having an “outside” character point it out.

Tpbt could have still provided a Caryl scene or two in episode 10 if they just wanted to troll or tell us that the connection is platonic and staying that way. But if that was their goal, there’s no way they would have included all this other stuff that was used for the sole purpose of conveying Daryl’s feelings for Carol, over and over again. 

They also wouldn’t have made those scenes as emotional as they were. If they wanted us to believe that Daryl saw Carol as a family member, then they wouldn’t have shown that he took her leaving very personally, and it broke his heart. They would have shown Daryl to be upset, not so extremely hurt as he was, because what they did show was Daryl being the guy who is heartbroken over the love of his life leaving him. When a character is that hurt over another character leaving, it’s not meant to be seen as “oh he’s upset over his mom/sister/real estate agent leaving him”. You don’t do that

There were so many things packed into that episode that are undeniably romantic tropes:

  • talking about her out of the blue to other people.
  • beating up and threatening someone who wants to harm her.
  • heartbroken that she left.
  • he’s the one exception - the only person she lets in.
  • firelight dinner and emotional talk.
  • telling a huge lie to protect her and her feelings. (also the trope where one character can’t bear to see the other in pain or crying.)
  • walking away and then turning back and hugging her.
  • clinging to each other - in which smelling each other, nuzzling, and Daryl kissing her shoulder a little through her shirt were all involved.)
  • almost calling him back.
  • being called out on your feelings by the very person you were previously talking to when you brought her up out of the blue. 

Everyone knows that these are romantic tropes. That’s just common knowledge, especially for writers. These tropes have been used for years to convey a bond that has romantic potential and underlying romantic feelings - to convey that they are on the road to canon, or taking their relationship to that next level. 

So there’s no way Gimple would have gone through all this trouble, dedicated all that screen time to emphasizing and highlighting the fact that Daryl loves Carol and will put her before everything else, and used all those romantic tropes to do that - just because he wanted to troll. 

Because now it is canon in Daryl’s character that Carol is the most important thing to him in the world, and it was portrayed not in the way that you portray one’s platonic/familial feelings for another character - but in the way that is traditionally used to show romantic, loving, deeper-than-friendship feelings. 

And you don’t do that if you don’t have plans to develop the relationship into something romantic.
