because if i own it i love it

Pictures of the Eros costume popped up again on my twitter tl and I scream a bit every time I see it BC LIKE

VIKTOR DOES HELP YUURI WITH ALL PREPARATIONS AFTER ALL and it’s so funny to see these tiny details because it shows JUST HOW MUCH TIME THEY SPEND TOGETHER BEHIND THE SCENES BUILDING THEIR RELATIONSHIP 

ALSO HOW CUTE IS IT THAT VIKTOR ALSO DOES YUURI’S HAIR FOR HIM NOW

Yuuri could obviously fix his hair on his own without problems but it’s so sweet that Viktor just takes over all of these things AND THEY OBVIOUSLY LOVE IT AS WELL and tons of people already discussed it but the act of brushing someone’s hair has a much more intimate history in Japanese culture as well

THESE TWO ARE SO PURE THEY CARE SO MUCH FOR EACH OTHER ON EVERY LEVEL AND OBVIOUSLY ENJOY ALL OF THESE SMALL THINGS THEY DO TOGETHER A GREAT DEAL I love how their relationship blossoms so seamlessly in the moments we don’t get to see in the show

Do you have a favorite Working dog breed? Mine is a Rottweiler, and which one would you own?

Hands down the Bernese Mountain Dog.

I’ve made it apparent in the past that I am no fan of hair, but I would make an exception if their health wasn’t so awful. Their life expectancy is only 7-8 years! 😞 

I love, love, love working breeds. Mastiffs, Newfies, Danes, Pyrenees?! But when it comes to ownership, I know my limits. Since my own dog is big and slobbery enough, I would have to go with owning a Boxer. Which is so ironic, because they’ve never been on my list. I always thought they were way too hyper for me. But, they are just happy dogs. And since my dog ended up being half Boxer, and me learning to love the enthusiastic nature of them, a Boxer is a working breed I would choose to own. It does scare me that they can develop heart problems though.

Hey guys, gals, n nonbinary pals. I've never been one much for exercise, but when people think about trans guys a lot of them go to the stereotypical "ripped with a six-pack" sort of person. How do I get people to take me seriously when I look more like four limp noodles stapled to a peanut?

Manhood embodies so many things. I think that we are trapped in what the world says masculinity should be instead of just living as the men we are.  Why is it that we have to choose to appeal to others when we as ourselves attract others through strength not muscle? I love my Trans identity because no one wants to claim it and I claim all of me!!!! So I define Me.

Today I have created a space where your masculinity belongs to you. You own it. You be it with integrity. And you Love yourself regardless of what the world says. There is no one way to be a man and if there was that would be boring!

I need to post this picture because I have seen it on IG (credit: @fiftyshadesgeorgia) and I am literally oogling these two. It’s so beautiful to be in love and to show it to the world. There is so much negativity and bad things happening on a daily basis in the world that seeing two people in love who don’t feel the need to hide it (pun intended) is refreshing! Love is something beautiful, love gives you strength and courage. Show it, own it. Don’t hide it. Whomever doesn’t appreciate the genuine sentiment two people in love share, then they’re missing the best part of life. #lovewins #always

This is probably an unpopular opinion but… I’m glad that Mon-El expanded on the whole “You are my kryptonite” thing. I’m glad that he sorta owned that how he reacted was down to him. In the case of a jealousy and some irrational behavior I don’t really like the whole “I did it because I love you” trope thing or whatever. Which isn’t really what he was saying but… I’m just glad that he didn’t leave it at that one line.

That he explained that what he feels for her is so new and different to him that he struggled with how to handle his emotions when they overwhelmed him. I feel like the rest of what he says after the kryptonite line is more self-aware and gave a little more acknowledgement to the fact that the way he handles his emotions is on him.

It changed from “Because of what you make me feel” into “Because of what I feel for you” and I just like that a lot better. I know that he didn’t mean it in a bad way, not at all, but it just didn’t completely sit quite right with me in the context that it was in.

I would’ve liked it better (and I don’t have an actual problem with the line I just appreciate that he explained himself better) if it had been delivered under slightly different circumstances. Like if it had been a situation where she had been and danger and he had risked his life to help her and she had been upset with him for putting himself in danger – that I would have been completely comfortable with.

And again, I understand that the intent when he said it was to express himself and try to communicate his feelings and he was doing that in a way that he hoped would convey them the best. I get that and that’s why as a whole I’m not upset or bothered about it. I’m just glad that he regrouped and communicated better about what he was experiencing.

I’m also really happy that he shared with Kara and with us as the audience that he sees what he did wrong, he understands why Kara was angry and he’s going to do better.

I’m proud of him for slowing down and thinking about what Kara said and really listening to what she told him. I’m proud of him for actually taking the time and then making sure that Kara knew that he got it and that he would respect her choices even if what she chose wasn’t being with him.

That’s a big deal and an important thing for the show to establish. Just because he was jealous and upset doesn’t mean that he’s going to try to act possessive or creepy about it. There is a difference between those two things.

We saw Mxy being the creepy version – like saying “What’s that uncle Jor-El? If you have to hold Kara down until she sees reason and becomes my bride you will?” that’s really freaking creepy -  whereas Mon-El said his peace and when Kara still said no and asked him to leave he listened and he acknowledged that even if what she wanted was something that he didn’t agree with or was hurt by it was still her choice and he had to respect that.

He looked devastated when he left but he didn’t throw a tantrum or threaten her. He walked away because that’s what she said she wanted. She was going to marry an imp who was clearly mentally unstable. If there was ever a time when I would have understood him having a “look at your life, look at your choices” moment, that would have been it. But she had clearly stated earlier in the ep that she wanted him to respect that her decisions were hers to make and that she wanted him to understand that she could handle herself. AND THAT IS EXACTLY WHAT HE DID.

Kara saw that and understood it. It matters to her – as it should obviously – that he gets it. The fact that he is so open to learning and willing to change counts with her. For anyone who has questioned why she would want to be with him… here it is.

He is ready to see things differently and work on improving himself. Whether it’s training to be a super hero or just learning where the line is and keeping himself from crossing it. He always keeps trying and to someone like Kara that makes all the difference in the world.

The gift of the moonlit deer

Earlier I replied on another thread. An anon was saying that for her all the magic is gone. I decided to put my comment out as my own post. The magic isn’t gone for me and I’ll tell you why. (And this is just my experience - not the right one, not the one everyone should have, not the best way to be - just how it’s been for me). In my experience, Sam and Cait’s interactions haven’t changed. They are funny, flirty, sweet and intimate. They have always been thus. I think why the magic hasn’t faded for me is because I have always tried to avoid assigning meaning to their interactions. I simply enjoy them (very much) as they come. In fact, I live for them. I take them at their word when they say they have a deep and abiding love for one another, but I try to avoid assigning my own interpretation to that love. It isn’t always easy. I ship them. I do. I’d love to see them as a couple. But I don’t try and make that happen based on what I see. I try to remind myself merely to enjoy and appreciate what I see.
Lord John tells Claire a story in Echo that relates well, I think.
“At my plantation…there is a large space at the rear of the house. It was a small clearing at first and over the years I have enlarged it and finally made a lawn of it, but the edge of the clearing runs up to trees. In the evenings, quite often, deer come out of the forest to feed at the edges of the lawn. Now and then I see a particular deer. It’s white, I suppose, but it looks as though it’s made of silver. I don’t know whether it comes only in the moonlight or whether it’s only that I cannot see it save by moonlight - but it is a sight of rare beauty. It comes for two nights, three- rarely, four - and then it’s gone, and I don’t see it again for weeks, sometimes months. And then it comes again, and I am enchanted once more. Do you see? I do not own this creature - would not, if I could. It’s coming is a gift, which I accept with gratitude, but when it’s gone, there is no sense of abandonment or deprivation. I’m only glad to have had it for so long as it chose to remain. 
Think of the deer, he said gently. My dear.”
I try to think of the deer and be grateful, and let them live their lives.

so biophilia, if done with enough background knowledge on animal behaviour, is a good thing?

Biophilia is an innate human experience - it’s not good or bad, it’s just part of who we are. It’s how we choose to engage with it that matters. 

This blog was created because I believe there’s a huge amount to be said for learning to understand why animals do what they do on their own terms - putting ourselves into their heads as much as we can, rather than interpreting them through our own schema. We can love and value them just as much when our empathy is accurate to how they live, and honestly, I think it’s so much more powerful to look at something as alien as an octopus and have some semblance of an idea of it’s internal state. 

“Do you have any idea what my home life was like? Growing up with six sisters who looked *exactly* like me? It was like I didn’t even have my own name. I joined the circus because I was scared of spending the rest of my life as part of a matched set. At least I’m different now. Circus freak is a compliment!”

I loved Ty Lee with her chi-blocking fighting style! 

i wanna talk about daydreams for a sec, because i absolutely live in mine. my entire life i’ve been so enthralled by the worlds in my own mind, that at times i prefer to be left alone with them. even as a kid i loved playing by myself, being a spy or a mermaid or something, and playing alone meant i never had to explain my intricate fantasy to anyone else.
i’m 24 tomorrow and i have to wonder if i’ll someday be lying next to my spouse and still playing out fantasies in my head. will i be driving my kids to school and spacing out about what if i were an FBI agent?? what if i were the avatar? what if i were a famous celebrity? it’s weird to think about bc my life right now is so empty, and i’m fully aware that my daydreams fill the void, and as as a kid it was just all about fun. but if/when i do have friends/a spouse/children/fulfilling career, will my want for daydreams simply dissipate? is it really just a coping mechanism, or will i always be living half in reality and half in imagination?
i hope i never lose it tbh. it’s hard to imagine my mind without it, what would I think about in the car? in the shower? in bed? god only knows. but i will say that i hope parts of my reality someday become as good (or almost as good) as my daydreams. it would be nice to have that particular brand of happiness be a permanent thing.

I just wanna say, i’m really happy for these guys.
Stefan deserved that title so much. I would say he deserved it the most from all of them. He was amazing through out the whole season. He couldn’t manage to fight for a 4H title, because he was sick. I think this is some kind of a compensation for it. Very well deserved Krafti. I love this guy.
Then Andi, who was kind of struggling at the very beginning of the season, but then the third place in Wisła happened. Which was my pleasure to be there on my own and see that. It’s amazing, that he managed to come back after his horrible fall in Kuusamo 2014 . I’m really proud of my Milka boy. Love him to death.
Then there is Markus with the third place. I wouldn’t say, that he’s the one. But c'mon. He deserves it! He deserves to be happy. He’s trying his best as anyone else do. He’s so passionate about ski jumping. I love him. I love Markus, because he’s not afraid to show, how he really feels.
So overall.
I’m so happy for this podium.
Congrats Krafti, Andi and Eisei!💜💜

I love all the different types of intelligence on this show. I love that they’re all shown to be clearly valuable and effective even though they’re so different.

I mean you have Monroe, who’s just a never-ending font of random facts he finds interesting. Not necessarily because he spent a ton of time studying or mastering a specific thing, but because he gets so immersed in anything he finds interesting and learns and retains everything he can about it. And he finds a lot of things interesting.

Then you have Juliette/Eve, who’s the investigator, the researcher. She knows her own field really well, but she’s also capable of searching and examining until she finds out anything else she needs to know, and then applying that knowledge to a problem. She’s inquisitive by nature, so if there’s a question in front of her she immediately starts seeking an answer.

Rosalee is the innovator, the experimenter. She knows a lot of things about the past and what is understood about how the world works, but they live on the edge of what’s accepted knowledge versus what’s possible but unheard of, and she is constantly finding ways to synthesize old knowledge into new concoctions: cures, weapons, you name it. She adapts quickly to new information and isn’t afraid to try something completely untested if it has a chance of getting results.

Then there’s Hank and Wu, who are grouped together because their type of intelligence is so similar. They’re interrogators. They don’t look for the answers, they look for the questions. They look for the logic holes, the lies that fall flat, the things that don’t quite make sense or haven’t been fully explained. They’re always listening for not just what people say, but how they say it. They’re critical of even the sources they trust, and downright skeptical of those they don’t. Their interrogations feed on each other, and when they really get going they can break down a shady story in ten seconds flat and turn a false lead into a good one.

Sean and Adalind are also similar, although they often come at problems from a different perspective: Sean from a place of power and Adalind from a place of disadvantage. Sean knows how to move people when he wants to, or twist their arms if he needs to. He can be a leader or a bully, depending on the situation. He’s good at manipulation, reading people, and getting them to do what he wants or needs even when they don’t want to. Adalind is the same, except where Sean makes people want to be useful to him, she makes people think she can be useful to them. She’s a bargainer, at times a con artist. She’s a master at ferreting out what people want and finding a way to align her interests with theirs–or at least make the other party think they do.

They all have such different ways at coming at a problem. And what’s really interesting is that none of them get perfect results alone. Even if what they’re doing works for a while, there comes a point when it fails and a new tactic is needed…which is why they work so well together as a team.

Which is where Nick comes in. Nick faces problems head on and eyes open, most of the time, but left to his own devices that can mean recklessness and a lack of strategy. What he’s amazing at, however, is uniting brilliant people who have very little in common toward a single goal, and inspiring their loyalty.

He doesn’t radiate leadership or power the way Sean does, but he has an earnestness that makes people congregate around him and care about him. None of them leave, even though it would clearly be safer far away from him and the troubles that come his way. Even Sean, much as he tried everything he could think of to sever all ties and trust between himself and the rest of them, still hovers around Nick’s orbit.

I'm super happy you're getting into Jojo! Got any favorite characters? Feel free to reply to this whenever, and sorry if that weird but I don't wanna sound like I'm rushing you on a simple ask.

Don’t worry, Lovely Anon, not weird at all!

Jojo is quite the journey, my friend! I honestly love most of the characters because their designs get more and more colorful and bizarre the further the show goes on and they all have fun, interesting personalities without getting repeated over and over again. I really really appreciate Araki’s skill to write well-done, funny “asshole with a heart of gold” characters and to make every JoJo I’ve met so far be their own person and not just a slightly different version of a previous JoJo.
There’s some things I really really adore about the writing in this (like introverted characters staying introverted and not getting shit for it, characters having relatable flaws, little behaviour details only existing to make a character feel like an actual person etc) . I’m serious, for a show that has most characters yell every single line for no reason and goes to gloriously ridiculous lengths to explain completely obvious things while shrugging off way more bizarre shit, there’s a lot of subtlety going on with a lot of characters that I quite frankly didn’t expect going in, and it’s fun to see this author grow with his characters in both writing and art over the 30 years it’s been running. 

I adore a lot of people in this show so far (we’re only at part 4 as of now), but  I’m especially fond of Abdul/Avdol, Okuyasu, Kakyoin, ACDC (like what is he even doing most of the time, i love it) and honestly, all the JoJos. I’m here for their stories.

There’s something welcoming about a lot of characters in this and yeah, it’s a fun experience! A gory, strange, baffling experience that I never expected to get into as much as I did. I fucking love bizarre stories and there is something so sincere about this series that I can’t help but love it, it doesn’t do the “SELF AWARE RANDOM!!!” type of jokes I personally dislike, it’s just… a strange world that plays itself so seriously most of the time and I love it.

anonymous asked:

Too many selfies, don't you think? I understand the self love, which is nice and much needed every once in a while, but this is grotesque.

Grotesque! How heart-warming! Okay but REAL talk, this is kind of my blog and it is not really run to amuse and please the people following it, you know? My blog is for my choices, expressions, ideas and ultimately my face if I decide that I want it on here! So here’s a little thing my grandma told me the other day: there’s two little spirits within you, one is the mean spirit and one is the kind one, and the more you feed one kind of spirit, the more it comes to surface! You have fed the mean spirit so much that it has come to surface, and I am so sorry that has happened :-( you seem to be angry at things that have nothing to do with you, just to come on anon and tell me that my blog is grotesque because of my face all over it :-( go make a smoothie and listen to some Stevie Wonder! It’ll make your life feel sunnier maybe!

((okayhearmeout))) this ship is quite popular in JP fandom nowadays (mostly in twitter). They refer it as AmaCha and has its own tag in pixiv as 天茶!!

Me? I just want to spread the love because I think they are cute. Here it is.

thatoneevilmaknae  asked:

I'm being serious! Like, yes, you can be an ARMY. Yes, you can support other groups. No, you don't have to say shit like "ARMY here supporting *blah*, you're welcome." And I honestly feel attacked when I see the "Any ARMY here", like the fandom of the mv isn't relevant. A lot of ARMY's are very elitist and think BTS did literally everything for KPOP. I really just wanna pull their heads out of their asses because obviously they can't smell their own shit anymore.

😂😂😂 I love this.

Dear Lou,

Today I’m writing you this letter and I’m sorry if it took so long. I just didn’t have the time to write, with you not being here to read it and with me distracting myself to avoid wallowing in self-pity. I miss you Lou, you’re rarely here anymore. I’m sorry I’m being a whiny arse but I just hate not being with you. I don’t know what to do and I hate myself for even writing about this to you because you’re living your dream. The people love you and your song. I also know that this is your own kind of distraction from you know, Jay’s passing. I still cry about that every night you know? I miss her. So damn much. And you too. I miss making breakfast for you every morning and preparing your tea. I miss cuddling with you on the couch, not giving a rat’s ass about the paps outside or the whole world judging us behind our backs. I miss waking up every morning to your sleeping figure next to me. I miss your dainty wrists and your precious ankles. I miss your eyes and how they crinkle whenever you smile. I miss your loudness and your bubbly personality. I miss your voice. I miss.. you. I’m sorry for the tear stains. It’s just- my heart hurts Louis. Until when? Until when do I have to wait just so I could go to all your shows and support you wholeheartedly? Until when do I have to wait for you every time you leave? Until when do I have to wait and sit in silence as they slander your name in the front page of every newspaper for something you didn’t do? Until when do I have to comfort you and calm you down every time you cry because they made you do something shitty again? Until when are you willing to hurt yourself for other people Louis? You deserve happiness, and you’ll get it once you stop thinking about them and start putting yourself first. I love you, Louis Tomlinson. Love yourself, too. Come home soon. All the love. H

You will never be able to see me again. Never will I allow you to examine my eyes, never will you see how precious I could be, and you will never know how lucky you would have if you ever had me. I will never be yours again. You came from a world of selfishness and ego, I came from self-love and growth. You will poison yourself with lies and I will grow the flowers inside of me with the truth. I will take myself in a safe place, away from you, until the Earth cannot contain my brightness. You will be a slave-like shadow as I turn into my own rays of light. When that day comes, I will make sure not to remember even a single detail about you because you do not even deserve a slot.

Killua Zoldyck met Gon Freecss at the tender age of twelve on his first day of public school.

Killua had been running late. Very late, actually. His mother didn’t want him to go; she had begged him for weeks upon weeks to reconsider being home-schooled, to staying with her and the rest of their so-called family every single day for the rest of his life with no hope of escape-

Killua remembered thinking that he would rather choke himself then stay cooped up in that horrible mansion with his horrible relatives for another year.

(Years later, with flower petals clogging his throat and the sharp taste of iron on his tongue, he couldn’t help but laugh brokenly. Oh, the irony.)
