happy birthday to my special boy !!!!
it’s a hamster plush party


I like keeping things organized, but on the other hand, recolors of my CC make me happy and I feel the need to share them all, so I’ve decided to compile them in one post. This list can be accessed from the original mesh post and my reblog tag. Thanks for recoloring ! (Original mesh)

also there were so many throwbacks to the “oldschool” spn in 12.19. Dean’s mixtape, the Colt, Team Free Will, all of which were dismantled in one way or another. 

The Colt being broken was almost cathartic in a personal way, just because it felt like they were saying “we’re not doing things the old way anymore”. 


And Team Free Will…. All I can say is that they’ve all had a lot of character development from those who once formed Team Free Will against Lucifer, and now that it’s been broken apart, there’s only waiting to see the new Team Free Will they’ll form against Lucifer’s baby, if that happens at all. 

Unlike the old Team Free Will which was Dean and Sam’s codependency issues + Cas tagged on the side because they need him to do things for them, the newly formed Team Free Will will ideally be Dean, Sam, and Cas as individuals who don’t need each other to survive, but choose each other while also knowing that they can have healthy relationships with other people outside of their little group. 

Hopefully. Hopefully this will mean that the old way is finally going to be dismantled like we’ve been promised many moons ago (*sadly stares towards carver’s general direction*) in order to build a new way out of the old pieces.

Weekly Voltron Fic Recs #25

Rules: You can find past weekly rec lists here, and non-list recs in my general fic rec tag. This is stuff I like, and I have a huge bias toward Lance, hurt/comfort, and general fluff, in that order. Gen unless otherwise noted. Please comment on the fics if you read and enjoy them!

Happy quarter life to this ridiculous feature. I need to stop procastinating on these.

The Lion at the End of the Tunnel by Outworld
Words: 3,488
Author’s Summary: Pidge bites off more than she can chew in an act of grand space piracy gone wrong. Aboard a dying starship with few options, she’s starting to think this might be her last mistake until she discovers a certain idiot has done something very stupid.
My Comments: Tagged Lance/Pidge but reads platonic. This is a great action fic with perfect character voices. I love these two together so very, very much.

Truce by kyanve
Words: 42,709 (WIP 7/?)
Author’s Summary: “EVERYONE SHOULD BE ABLE TO SEE IN EVERYONE ELSE’S HEADHOLES!” - because that feels like one of a few things that needs exploring.The new team can be a perfectly good one, but the odds of finding any five people who don’t know each other THAT well who’ll be thrilled with being mentally linked to giant sapient mechanical god-beasts and each other is basically nonexistent. It’s a recipe for whacking heads into it, avoiding it, trying to pretend it’s not there, and generally making an already awkward train wreck of a situation more awkward and confusing.Keith as main PoV because I would go insane doing this from more than one PoV and it would turn into more of a novel than it’s already looking like it’ll be, and who better to explore “sudden unasked for mental links to other beings” than someone with abandonment issues and trust issues everywhere *and* a few good big secrets?This starts around beginning of canon and I have parts to clean up and post going all the way through Season 2; it’s weaving through almost entirely off-camera things and side events. Spoilers bloody everywhere.
My Comments: REALLY fun missing scene-type fic with a great Keith perspective. It’s FUN and it does a great job of fleshing everyone out, and there are some truly fantastic ideas. I’m really enjoying this one.

Little Lions by MidnightCreator
Words: 5,111 (WIP 3/6)
Author’s Summary: Lance has a very bad day and his only upside is the comfort from the Blue Lion. The Blue Lion knows her Pilot needs her so she takes steps to be as close as she can be to him. Her actions set off a chain reaction amongst the other Lions as they all step up to be there for their Pilots.
My Comments: SO CUTE. I love lions-as-actual-lions, and this is especially good because the lions just want to make their pilots feel better. So it’s tiny lion shenanigans and oodles of H/C. MY FAVE COMBO.

Masks by TiedyedTrickster
Words: 9,588
Author’s Summary: Everyone has a mask, one that tells the world what character you’re destined to play in life, that tells people who you are. Except Lance’s mask doesn’t match him at all, and it’s driving Keith nuts.
My Comments: This is SUCH a creative and original concept. I’ve never seen anything like it, and it’s so, so cool. Starts out Lance-centric, but there’s lots of other stuff in there too, like fantastic Shiro and Keith and also REBEL MATT. Check it out!

An Unexpected Hero by nerdiekatie
Words: 2,102
Author’s Summary: “You tapped my knife to a Roomba? Where did you even get a Roomba?” Keith starts to peel his knife from the Roomba while Pidge is speaking. “She’s an old cleaning droid I found- Keith, no!” Pidge lunges forward to stop him. Keith just lifts the Roomba above his head, watching Pidge try to jump high enough to get her. “She needs to be able to defend herself!”
My Comments: This fandom has only the HIGHEST quality crack.

our native land draws all of us by SerenePanic
Words: 1,037
Author’s Summary: Coran is many things: advisor, mechanic, historian.Once, he was a father.
My Comments: My heart hurts. I love Coran so much.

De-Stressing by The_Sickfic_Sideblog for pinstripedJackalope
Words: 1,642
Author’s Summary: Keith is very stressed out. Pidge knows how to handle this. Set relatively close after The Blade of Marmora.
My Comments: This is really sweet, and I love how cool and competent Pidge is while Keith is falling apart. She really knows how to get past his defenses, and it’s lovely to see.

Qualifications by The_Sickfic_Sideblog
Words: 1,340
Author’s Summary: Pidge gets dehydrated, and the effects bring up sour memories.
My Comments: I would say “protect her,” but I think her team has that well in hand.

Ice Ice (Baby) by shishiswordsman
Words: 12,707 (WIP 2/?)
Author’s Summary: The Blue Pilot’s shoes become too big for Lance to fill. Literally. (Yes, it’s a kidfic. Sue me.)
My Comments: LOVE. De-aged Lance is quite realistic, and there’s beautiful, amazing art for every chapter, too! I am STOKED for more.

Skirt, Dirt, Worth by ardett
Words: 6,354
Author’s Summary: Lance wants to see Pidge wear skirts and makeup. (But really he doesn’t.)
My Comments: This made me ache, but there’s a lot of loveliness and courage in here, too. Lance needs love and acceptance so much, and it takes some work, but his team is able to give him that.

It Takes a Village by Zemmiphobia
Words: 18,010
Author’s Summary: One decision by an injured soldier changes not only the fate of the universe, but the fate of her young son.
My Comments: Thace/Ulaz. I adore this characterization of the Blade, especially Ulaz as a scientist who is very smart and methodical, but also has almost too much heart and compassion. Baby Keith is perfect, and I was very satisfied with the ending, though I’m happy there are more stories in the series, too.

Lost in the Stars by WingedChickadee
Words: 3,440 (WIP 3/?)
Author’s Summary: They didn’t see him. They didn’t see the lion falling quickly towards the planet’s surface through the debris of broken Galra ships. They heard his shout of pain and shock, but not what happened. Six people all assumed he made it back to the castle, they didn’t notice the missing paladin. No one noticed. Not a batted eye or turn of a head.When the paladin wakes up, he is injured and alone. Now, he has to try and survive until he can find a way home.
My Comments: Oh no, LANCE. This is very well-written and scary, and I really need more.

lost & found by luoup (ravenic)
Words: 7,006
Author’s Summary: The wormhole has been rent apart by Haggar’s magic, and the Paladins are lost.
My Comments: Really lovely little fic. A well-done take on the post-season 1 scenario, with an excellent conclusion that made me happy-sigh.

Under Pressure, I Break by Emerald_Ashes
Words: 2,728
Author’s Summary: Lance was more hurt than he let on after their visit to the water planet where the wormhole spat them out. His injuries are aggravated further during their fight with Ulaz, and then the Robeast. When it finally becomes apparent just how injured he is, Hunk can only blame himself.
My Comments: Hance. I love love LOVE the focus on Hunk in this fic. Though Lance is the one physically hurt, Hunk is the one who needs to be loved and reassured. Lovely little fic.

Go the Fuck to Sleep by nerdiekatie
Words: 1,745
Author’s Summary: He’s glad the paladins only have a low-level telepathic connection. Shiro is one hundred percent sure that if he could everything Pidge is feeling, he would be on his ass. As it is, Shiro has the distinction impression that Pidge can see time and taste shapes right now.
My Comments: I take back what I said earlier. They really REALLY need to protect her. Mostly from herself.

You’re Our Sharpshooter by safety_dancer for spacekidwrites
Words: 1,302
Author’s Summary: My take on how Shiro reacts to hearing Lance call himself Voltron’s seventh wheel.
My Comments: Very sweet little fic. I want something like this to happen so bad.

Out of Phase by LittleWhiteTie
Words: 6,571 (WIP 2/4)
Author’s Summary: Shiro is lost, only able to contact the paladins during their dreams. He helps them through their nightmares when they need him the most, but it’s getting harder and harder to find them as he starts to lose track of what’s real and what’s imagined. He’s losing his grip on this reality, and his sense of self is beginning to fall apart. He’s going to need their help to get back before he disappears entirely.
My Comments: FANTASTIC Post-S2 concept, just amazing. GAH, it makes me hurt, but it’s so lovely. Really, really want some more.

Audio/Visual Quest by Dynared21
Words: 15,298
Author’s Summary: Pidge and Lance have journeyed to a mysterious planet in order to find the technical details to Zarkon’s fortress…as well as a TV that they can hook up their Gamestation to! But who owns the mysterious collection they run across, and will the pair be able to escape with their gains? Or will they end up the newest exhibits of this collector?
My Comments: Really fun, action-packed, episode-like fic. I’m super happy that S2 has seemed to encourage more fics with Pidge and Lance interacting. They’re such a fantastic combo.

Feeling Blue by spitfire00
Words: 2,962
Author’s Summary: Lance is feeling worthless. Pidge reminds him just how important he is.
My Comments: Have I mentioned lately how much I love Lance and Pidge? Anyway, I love the way she just shoves her way in there and refuses to leave. Lance needs a stubborn little sister to love him.

The Long Walk Home by nerdiekatie
Words: 5,488
Author’s Summary: What happens when you get your unexpected and unwanted period in space? What happens when your armor doesn’t have pockets for your inhaler? On a stealth mission, Pidge and Hunk are stranded and forced to walk to the Green Lion. They’re racing against time and their own bodies. Will they make it back?
My Comments: This fic is GRUELING, but I love seeing the two geniuses of Team Voltron being badass and strong despite their unique difficulties.

Weekend Guests by TheBeckster
Words: 6,906 (WIP 1/?)
Author’s Summary: Voltron had been too late. They hadn’t been able to stop the Galra this time. As the Paladins pick their way through a leveled city, they come across a group of survivors and find themselves way out of their element. Everyone except Lance, that is.
My Comments: Fantastic start! I love Lance with kids, and he’s particularly competent and wise and adorable here. The kids all feel like kids with their own personalities, which can be tricky. Waiting patiently for more. (Not that patiently.)

Big Stick Diplomacy by windscryer
Words: 3,496
Author’s Summary: Keith is bad at diplomacy, but he is trying. Pidge… not so much.
My Comments: Protective Pidge! Savage on Keith’s behalf! Everyone is extremely protective, too, but Pidge takes the cake. She will take you down if you even THINK about looking at her family funny, and Keith is her boy.

The Galra have a new gun. And he supposes it’s his fault, really, that it gets fired in the first place. But who it hits—well, the universe isn’t going to lose its Golden Boy, not if Lance can help it. Not if all he needs is two steps to get Keith out of the way. And it doesn’t matter what happens to Lance. Not to him. There are more important things to worry about.

phoebeophelia  asked:

First, thank you so much for this blog. Even if you don’t get to my ask, you’ve already helped me so much! So. The healing magic in my world is largely limited to imaging. They have sanitation and herbal medicine, but their materials are low-tech. Glass and resin but no plastic and only very small amounts of metal. Character (a large, healthy adult) receives rabbit punch to base of skull. He is confused at first, then unconscious in minutes. (1 of 2)

The healers immobilize him and take him to their clinic. Swelling gradually makes his symptoms worse over the course of about three hours. Eventually he would be unable to breathe on his own. Does this sound about right for a spinal cord injury? Would there be anything the healers could do for him at this low tech, or is everyone just waiting for him to recover or die on his own? Thanks again! (2 of 2)

Hey there! Thanks for the ask. (It feels good to work on fresh asks again!!) 

No, this does not sound like a spinal cord injury. If this was a spinal cord injury, he would stop breathing immediately, because the base of the brain is high up enough that a spinal cord injury will cut off innervation of the muscles that keep the character breathing. SCIs tend to have instant effects, especially when it comes to paralysis. 

(As for the location of the injury, the “base of the skull” is C1-C2. The rule is “C5 stays alive”; C5 is one of the lowest neck vertebrae. SCIs above C5 are fatal without a ventilator, and even then, they’re often fatal anyway.) 

What it does sound similar to, however, is a subarachnoid hemorrhage. This is when the character blacks out, wakes up, then rapidly returns to unconsciousness as the bleeding in the skull puts pressure on the brain. 

With no way to vent the pressure short of crude brain surgery (with an almost 100% chance of infection), no, your healers cannot fix this. However, just because he gets incredibly sick, doesn’t mean he’ll die from it. He may just have brain damage and ongoing issues with seizures. 

What I would really hate would be if your character was just unconscious and recovered back to their full self. It betrays realism and your reader’s trust: that things have consequences. I know that you know this, but this character needs some form of change because of what happened to them. Otherwise, what’s the point? 

Medically speaking, I would suggest starting with the #coma tag, the #tbi tag and the #head injury tag and going from there. (You’ll see this post on those lists; scroll past.) 

Best of luck!!

destielling  asked:

i've never sent you a message before but i have no one to talk to about new girl ever (extremely unfortunate). anywho, i'm rewatching season 2 for like the 1000th time and i'm still bitter over the ep first date, because like????/ will we ever find out what nick and jess wrote on those pieces of paper?????? i need to know for science

you’d never sent me a message before but you reblog things from me sometimes and I’m a stalker who always reads other people’s tags so I know you and I love you, you always write gr8 tags kjgjksbdk AND NO WORRIES YOU CAN ALWAYS TALK TO ME ABOUT NEW GIRL

that being said I love that ep but I hate that ep because it doesn’t make any sense that they didn’t end up fucking on the kitchen counter if you know what I mean??? it’s 30+ degrees outside so it’s not like I ain’t sweating already but if I think about them in the kitchen/hallway turning the other on…like… how did they not do it that night

ALSO yeah I’m offended by the fact we still don’t know what they wrote on the valet cards… but sadly I don’t think we’ll ever find out (I don’t think the writers ever gave them another thought…), unless one of them just mentions them in passing *hint* LIKE DURING THE PROPOSAL/THEIR VOWS/WHATEVER

I saw a post the other day with other adhd and autistic people being really frustrated with the whole fidget spinner trend, because these tools are taken out of context and are being seen as trinkets or toys and people don’t understand them, and I wanted to add on but I can’t find the post anymore so anyway -

People are taking these spinners and making them completely ineffective. There are so many that light up or are in some other way attention-grabbing and like. That defeats the entire purpose!! They’re supposed to be something you can move around out of sight so you can focus your attention on what you actually need to be paying attention to. Which I know sounds really counterintuitive to most people who aren’t autistic or don’t have adhd or anything similar, but like. Being forced to sit still and pay attention to one thing isn’t natural for us, so if we have an unobtrusive way to be moving that can be a huge help. I recently got a fidget cube and took it to class for the first time last week, and no joke, my notetaking completely jumped up in effectiveness - my pages aren’t covered in doodles instead of information, which hasn’t happened since the beginning of the quarter! Fidget tools can be amazing, but if they occupy your full attention, then you’re doing them wrong.

But when they’re being marketed as a fun toy, then of course they’re all shiny and light up and what have you, because that’s what sells to a wider audience, right?

And as that’s happening, as it becomes a trend, there then comes the inevitable derision of the trend. I work retail and my boss recently ordered in a bunch of fidget spinners for us to sell. I’ve lost count of the number of times I’ve been asked something along the lines of “so what’s the point of these things, anyway?” So many people have said “I just don’t really get these spinners.” Parents roll their eyes and drag their kids away from the display. A pair of young women - around my age, probably - came in the other day, and one looked at the display and muttered to her friend, “those things are cancer,” before they tittered and walked off.

And like, as someone who actually benefits from something like this? That really fucking stings. I’m so sick and tired of people rolling their eyes and acting condescending about the spinners, I’m tired of people brushing aside my explanations so they can continue to look down on this - I’m fucking tired of it. Initially I had hoped that the popularity could be a good thing, it would increase availability. Which it did, but it also increased the number of annoyed suburban moms who “just don’t get it” but still buy their bratty kid a spinner because “everyone at school has one!” I’m so fucking tired.


So the purpose of this blog is to essentially create a fic library for easier access to both fic and fic writers, as well as provide prompts and challenges.

Because this is a fairly new blog, much of it still needs to be worked out-especially finding fic and tagging things.

Therefor if one of your fic has yet to be reblogged or linked to, it would be a huge help if you could link it to me so I could. Also if there’s a tag you need blacklisted, let me know alright? I want to make this as enjoyable an experience as I can.

Thanks for your time. Let’s get reading!

Idk if it's a new thing, but Tumblr has this visibility thing in the settings where you can hide your blog from google search or something and idk if it will help you with the trolls or not but I thought it might be of interest

Yeah I did that once but it also makes your tumblr unsearchable for tags. Which I really need because I forget about posts a lot and like to search keywords to find them on my blog.

But thank you though!
PSA [!]

So, since my phone decided to stop working properly and the keyboard doesn’t appear I can’t write. This means I can’t reply messages or chats, put tags in the posts or anything that needs the damn keyboard.

I still can reblog and like posts using tumblr mobile but how I tag everything I won’t reblog anything until I use the pc. The posts that will appear in my blog are queued ones lol

If there’s a message or something probably I’ll read it but won’t be able to answer it until night when I am in the pc.

That’s it lol Love you all <3

i have been tagged thank u @cleoselene!! Rule:…

I need to listen to the new Lorde album, my bff can’t stop raving about it. also “Bad Blood” is forever iconic because of Rizzo so it doesn’t matter how old it is

the new Lorde album is SO good, highly recommend! i’ve really been listening to the whole thing on repeat haha but i figured i’d go for a little more variety with this meme lol. 

i have had to explain to my dad multiple times that yes, rizzo CHOOSES to walk up to that song!!! and my dad’s like “but why THAT” and i’m just like……why NOT that….it’s a badass song…..

Let’s Play a Game!

The game: 1001 plot holes! DR3 version

How the game works:

Add to this post a plot hole, inconsistency, or major problem with DR3 whenever you think of one. After this stops getting notes, I’ll make a numbered list of all the points brought up and we see the exact number how many there are. Think of a combination of where’s waldo and venting.

Now, to make this clear, this is NOT to shame or make fun of people that liked the anime! Please do NOT use this to shame people who liked DR3. This is not a tool for people to be bullies, it is a game to see how many things we can find.

  • Only problems with DR3, the animations. This can be Despair, Hope, or Future arc. Only mention the other works if it is relating back to DR3. EXAMPLE: X character was OC because in Y they act like this but in DR3 they act like this.
  • Do not edit old posts unless it is to correct something. If you think of something new, add it in a new reblog so it won’t be missed.
  • Please use reblogs instead of replies or putting things in the tags. This will let more people see so they can play and make it easier for me to compile everything at the end.
  • Read through the reblogs before adding to avoid duplicates.
  • Keep points short or have a TL:DR version for when I do the final list. I can link for things that need further explanation, but don’t want to have to copy/paste multiple paragraphs into the list. The shorter your point, the better.
  • … and please tag this post and the responses for negativity (such as DR3 criticism or DR3 negativity) as not everyone wants to see it.

Failure to follow these rules means what you add could be missed or will be purposely ignored when the final count is added up.


Thank you so much for tag! @xjennifx

The pics are from: 

  • Dan Smith, because he is everything what I need and his personality is very interesting
  • Pineapple, because it is tasty and fun at the same time
  • Photoshop - I like to create new things and try new techniques
  • Mint nail polish, because I have it on my nails all summer
  • Movies - I like watching movies, my favorite genre is Fantasy
  • Books - for me mean everything, I can use my imagination, something like escape from reality

I don’t know if Arakawa really thought about it but I love the fact that she gave the pretty pink princess/alkahestrist we all know and love the name May/Mei. Depending on how you write/pronounce it, it could mean  美 (měi) “beautiful” which she totally is or 妹妹 (mèimèi) “little sister” which she obviously is to Ling.

But it could also mean  梅 (méi) “plum” aka plum blossoms which are known to bloom during late winter. The Chinese regard the plum blossom as a symbol of strength coz I mean like how many flowers bloom in winter? Plum blossoms also symbolize hope and endurance in difficult times.

In the series, May/Mei travels crosses a freaking desert to travel to another country for the sake of her clan. She stayed by Scar and Al’s side even when things were going rough. She had to transmute the soul of the man she cared about even if she obviously didn’t want to but did so anyway because she also had to save the life of that young man’s older brother. Not many preteens can handle that kind pressure and life-threatening experiences, but May/Mei pushed through it all and survived all while giving hope to others that they can survive too. Much like the meaning of her name.
