Making things is work. Work takes time. Time is valuable. It sounds like you're pretty young so I don't blame you for not understanding, but creators charging a very small amount of money for the hours and hours of work they do isn't a bad thing. The money they charge allows them to create the content you like. The fact that they create content on their own time is an argument in favor of paying them, not against. They don't have to make stuff, just like you don't *have* to pay for it.

idk what’s up with that belittling tone, because i’m deffo old enough to understand how it is to work hard for this stuff, more than enough. do you think i don’t spend a lot time on the stuff i make? i spend hours and hours on it. heck, i sometimes am busy a whole day just perfecting that one little thing nobody is probably going to notice, but i just want to be happy with the things i make so i try my best and take the time it needs because i want to release content people can enjoy. but do i feel like i deserve money for it? hell no. i am the one deciding i want to create content, so others can enjoy it, i’m not going to force people to pay for it because i decided i wanted to be a custom content creator. but it seems like you are the one not understanding that. it’s a choice a creator makes for themselves, they want to create content, but they shouldn’t be the one to say ‘hey dude, u gotta pay up for this because i spent my precious time on it’. 

why not give people the option to donate? ‘hey you don’t need to do this, but if you appreciate me i would be super grateful!’ give people the freedom to make the decision and honestly, i would feel a thousand times better getting money via donations than via patreon, because it’s literally someone going out of their way to say ‘hey you are cool and i appreciate you and you deserve this’ instead of the ‘well i want this thing so i guess i gotta pay up’. 

also, ‘the money they charge allows them to create the content you like’. you’re joking right? i really hope you are. blender = free. sims 4 studio is a program a ton of people worked hard on and wow.. it’s free. photoshop you can get for free in some way, and even then there’s gimp, which is, once again, free. you literally do not need any money whatsoever to create content. the only thing you are paying for is a computer of some sorts (which i guess u already have so that’s no problem) and ur internet and the sims game, which you already have if you are deciding to be a creator. damn.

You’ve Been a Bad, Bad Girl...

A Steve Rogers x @always-an-evans-addict Oneshot

Rating: R
Warnings: Language, NSFW/Smut, fluff
Summary: A nice NSFW oneshot for @always-an-evans-addict, who’s an obvious bad girl, by an anon’s shipping—“I ship you with Steve Rogers, just because…..”
Note: I hope you like it! Enjoy!


His sweet little Tori doll was needy, always craving for his  touch, mewling lustily whenever they were alone. Since being unfrozen, Steve has tried to get his life back in order; he needed to accept the fact that times had changed, New York City was completely different than it was in the 1940s. He worked constantly, repeatedly called to do go on dangerous missions. His life as Captain America was beginning to interfere with his life as plain-old Steven Grant Rogers. He barely had time to draw, let alone sleep, and Natasha decided that she required his help, suggesting that he get a girlfriend. The prospect of courting anyone that wasn’t Peggy Carter seemed wrong to Steve, as if he was committing a sin of some sorts, yet here he was, in a happy relationship with a woman that was, necessarily, seventy years younger than him.

GEMINI: It’s really easy for people to criticize the choices you’ve been forced to make when they’ve never worn shoes as tattered as yours. The ground never seems rocky to anyone until they’ve personally experienced its brutality, and you’ve been braving the blood and the bruises for years without complaint. It’s okay to feel proud of yourself, for that. It’s okay to acknowledge the things that have made you who you are, even if those things haven’t always been beautiful or easy to talk about. Everything’s easier to appraise once it’s been given a voice.

CANCER: Stop convincing yourself that you don’t deserve the treasure chests that keep arriving on your doorstep. You’ve spent so long attempting to find the reason in your misfortune that you’ve incorrectly deduced that the only commonality between every pitfall is yourself. But you haven’t been factoring in how cruel the universe is, how angry it gets whenever something with a warm heart tries to touch what’s frozen. You’re finding all of this gold and compassion because it’s finally time for you to get what you’ve been giving to others. Take it.

LEO: You know, more so than anybody else, that it’s time to let go of the things that have hurt you, but there’s no easy way to say that you don’t know how to get rid of people that you’ve held so close to your chest. And maybe this says something about how much you try to give to others, all of the parts of yourself you’ve sacrificed for the comfort of soon-to-be-strangers. But the thing about leeches is that they drain you more often than they rid you of disease, especially in this season. And maybe this isn’t a leech yet, but it could become one, with time. Don’t let it.

VIRGO: It’s easy for you to ignore how much people truly care for you when you don’t feel as though you deserve it. The difficulty with this arises whenever you need help, as you’ve never learned how to ask for anything. So you let yourself feel distant from open palms and words of encouragement because you know you can do this yourself. While that’s true, you’re more than strong enough to conquer what’s been eating at you, it’s also true that the love that keeps getting shoved under your door is yours for the taking. It’s okay to pick it up. It’s okay to save it.

LIBRA: You’ve been peering out the window, comparing your reflection to everybody that passes by, and you seem to be forgetting that there’s a mirror right behind you. The only person that you need to measure yourself against is the person you were yesterday. I know it’s frustrating that progress too often moves like honey, and it’s impossible to see growth when you’re always with the thing that’s growing, but slow-motion is still motion. You may not be the person you want to be right now, but you will be. So turn around. Say hello to them.

SCORPIO: You were born with a shovel in your hand and you’ve been spending every moment since then dredging up the past. This is another way of saying that you have a lot of corpses buried in your backyard and despite the passage of time you’re afraid that they’re going to get up and walk away. Maybe come back as ghosts and haunt you, a reminder of what you’ve had to leave behind. But just because you’ve always had the tools to create self-doubt, it doesn’t mean you have to keep them on you at all times. It’s never too late to invest in a toolshed or try out gardening.

SAGITTARIUS: Have you found what you’ve been searching for, yet? Or, maybe a better question is “do you know what you’re looking for?” Because you’ve become an expert at donating your energy to a cause, any cause at all, and I’m starting to wonder if it’s all a distraction. If you’re struggling in the deep end and aren’t comfortable saying so. If you’re calling yourself a lifeguard because every atom of you is begging to be pulled out of the water. Baby, you’re so much more than a body that tries its best to save people. You’re worth more than what you’ve dragged out of the pool.

CAPRICORN: So many people that you care about have been falling into bad luck recently and it makes you feel so powerless. It’s as though you’re a minor character in your own life and you have to just sit back and watch the protagonist fuck things up in order to learn a lesson, or something like that. And I’m not going to lie and say that you’re able to have full control over every aspect of your life, because you never will. But remember that, despite all of this, every little thing you do to combat the world’s anger is a brave sort of rebellion. You are more than enough to the people you love.

AQUARIUS: There are a lot of people that you regret letting into your life and the memory of what you thought they’d be is making it hard for you to get out of bed. It’s okay to be sad, your feelings have only ever known the taste of validity, but know that nobody has the ability to ruin you. Someday they’re all going to regret setting fire to your bark when they realize how miraculous your leaves are in the summer heat, dancing in the breeze of late-night drives with people that want to keep you safe. Repeat after me: I am not damaged. I am not damaged. I am not damaged.

PISCES: I know that it’s hard to put faith in the moments of happiness you’ve been experiencing lately when so much of your life has been spent checking the clock and turning down the music, but you are not an airport or a train station. You’re a destination. And I know that you’re still getting used to the idea of being the subject of a travel brochure and that’s okay. It takes time to become comfortable with anything, even the good. Especially the good. The June air is buzzing and this is your time to shine. Don’t waste it.

ARIES: So, some eras of your life have been ending recently and that’s a little scary. Especially since you worked so hard to get what you’re holding. But they’re just making way for better adventures and happier moments and the only thing left for you to do is embrace that. Welcome change with open arms and it’ll be kind to you. I know there’s a voice in the back of your head saying “what if it all gets bad again” but you need to ignore that voice because it isn’t you. You are the person that’s endured and withstood and kept going. You’re the one that matters, here.

TAURUS: It’s been becoming more and more clear to you that out of all the people you’ve met and interacted with, there are very few you’d consider to be a “friend.” And I know that sometimes it feels like that’s all you’re ever going to get, but it isn’t. One’s hometown is, thankfully, never representative of the world in its entirety and there’s still so much you have left to see. Still so many souls that you’ll discover in the most mundane of places. You just have to keep your eyes open. I know it’s easier to sleep through the sadness, but you’re stronger than that urge, aren’t you? You are.

Sometimes you need to get real with yourself. Don’t pretend those tabs of youtube videos and fanfiction take precedence over that maths homework you need to get done. Don’t tell yourself you’ll get up early and do it, because chances are, your alarms will go off and you’ll snooze it automatically. Then right before the dreaded fourth period you will be stressed to no end and you’ll feel the feeling. You know, the feeling. When you can genuinely feel the list of tasks and responsibilities build up on your shoulders. That stationery will do nothing to save your grades if you don’t actually use it to make your revision materials. Don’t click onto youtube as a study break and find that 3 hours and only 4 pages of reading later, the glare of the screen gets a little blurry when you look at the time and look at your to do list with your priorities highlighted. I don’t care how much self control you think you have, or how much discipline you think you’ve honed, because when you make the decision to put of work that needs to get done and you’re relying on this new found immense self discipline that future you will just suddenly obtain, you know you’ve already lost. And it’s a double loss because not only have you lost to laziness and short term ‘happiness’, future you has lost to stress and possibly even not getting the grades or the qualifications you could’ve gotten that would’ve led you to take the path you’ve wanted to take. So please, for the love of your future self, get it done now. 

Taking care of yourself during the school year!

If you’re in school you know how easy it is to forget about taking care of yourself. With deadlines, homework, projects and everything in between, it seems like there is very little time left to yourself! So, here are some of my tips for taking care of myself during the school year! 

(Disclaimer: This is aimed more towards college students but it’s easy to adapt to those in middle and high school. Also, obviously these things won’t work for everyone, so don’t beat yourself up if something doesn’t go the way it’s “supposed” to.)


  1. Leave water somewhere you can see it. It’s super easy to get dehydrated in general, so add in limited focus on anything other than school and bam, a recipe for disaster. To remedy this, try leaving a glass or bottle of water in view and every time you look up from studying and/or your eyes pass over the bottle, take a sip!
  2. Pre-pack healthy snacks. In-between classes it’s easy to stop at the campus store, dining hall or vending machine to resolve your hunger. However, often the options available are things like candy and potato chips. By packing healthy things in advance it saves you money and also saves you from the empty calories. (If you don’t have a dependable way to get fruit, etc. take some extra apples or bananas from the dining hall every time you leave and store them in your room!)
  3. Pre-plan out your outfit the night before. Pack your school bags too! That way you can sleep in a little longer and your morning is a little less stressful, because you won’t be scrambling to get everything together!
  4. Avoid hangovers. Drink a huge glass of water before you start drinking and before you go to bed, and make sure you eat a lot during the day. Not only do hangovers suck, but they also take away valuable study time!
  5. Go to the gym with a friend! Working out can suck, especially if you’re not used to it. So go to the gym with a friend! It keeps you motivated and can even make things fun!
  6. Take a multi-vitamin! Even if you never had to take one during high school, it’s easy to eat horribly/not enough, and getting your daily vitamins is really important!
  7. Don’t give up your morning/bedtime routine for anything. This one might sound a little dumb, but trust me. Skipping a face wash or shower might sound okay at the time, but when you start breaking out or feeling less than your best, you’ll see what I mean.
  8. Buy some Melatonin! Even if you don’t have sleeping problems, college takes away a lot of your sleep and has a lot of distractions that make it hard to fall asleep (ex: noises neighbors). Melatonin helps you fall asleep and sleep better, so even if you only get a few hours, it was a few hours of better quality sleep than it probably would have been. (Because Melatonin is a tablet, it’s important to read the warnings on the packaging and consult a doctor before taking it!)
  9. Buy earplugs. Trust me. They’re a miracle worker when you’re trying to go to sleep, stay asleep, or get some work done in a noisy/distracting place.
  10. Keep your surroundings sanitized. Wash your hands on a regular basis and disinfect your room (focus mores on the things you, your roommate and friends come in contact with a lot like light switches, door knobs, etc.). Carry a little pack of sanitary wipes or a thing of hand sanitizer with you in your backpack at all times. It may sound like I’m going overkill on all of this but the plague is real and consistent in college. You remember how in high school everyone would come back from school breaks sick? Well it’s the same way in college but 24/7. You’re going to be surrounded by people from all over the country (most likely) that come in contact with things you don’t, who will bring them back to school with them. Being sick during college is one of the worst things ever, so try to avoid it if you can!

There we have it! 10 tips on how to take care of yourself during the busy school year! Feel free to add something if you feel like it’s important and I left it out!

Hi, I’ve been considering starting a book in the fantasy genre. I really wanted to give some Native American representation in it, since it's something that I rarely see. However, this story wouldn't take place in America, it would be in a completely different world (though one loosely based off of earth in the 14 hundreds ish?) This is similar to your mixing cultures post, but I wanted to know: is there a good way to give Native American representation in stories that aren’t historical fiction?

Representing PoC in Fantasy When Their Country/Continent Doesn’t Exist

The core of this question is something we’ve gotten across a few different ethnicities, and it basically boils down to: “how can I let my readers know these people are from a certain place without calling them by this certain place?” Aka, how can I let people know somebody is Chinese if I can’t call them Chinese, or, in your case, some Native American nation without having a North America.

Notes on Language

As I have said multiple times, there is no such thing as “Native American culture”. It’s an umbrella term. Even if you are doing fantasy you need to pick a nation and/or confederacy.

Step One

How do you code somebody as European?

This sounds like a very silly question, but consider it seriously.

How do you?

They probably live in huts or castles; there are lords and kings and knights; they eat stew and bread and drumsticks; they celebrate the winter solstice as a major holiday/new year; women wear dresses while men wear pants; there are pubs and farms and lots of wheat; the weather is snowy in winter and warm in summer.

Now swap all those components out for whatever people you’re thinking about.

Iroquois? They live in longhouses; there is a confederacy and democracy and lots of warriors from multiple nations; they eat corn, beans, and squash (those three considered sacred and grown together), with fish and wild game; they wear mostly leather garments with furs in winter; there are nights by the fire and cities and the rituals will change by the nation (remember the Iroquois were a confederacy made up of five or six tribes, depending on period); the weather is again snowy in winter and warm in summer.

Chinese? They harvest rice; there is an emperor appointed by the gods and scholars everywhere; they use a lunar calendar and have a New Year in spring; their trade ships are huge and their resources are plenty; they live in wood structures with paper walls or mud brick; they use jade and ivory for talismans; their culture is hugely varied depending on the province; their weather is mostly tropical, with monsoons instead of snow on lowlands, but their mountains do get chilly.

You get the gist.

Break down what it is that makes a world read as European (let’s be honest, usually English and Germanic) to you, then swap out the parts with the appropriate places in another culture.

Step Two

Research, research, research. Google is your friend. Ask it the questions for “what did the Cree eat” and “how did Ottoman government work.” These are your basics. This is what you’ll use to figure out the building blocks of culture.

You’ll also want to research their climate. As I say in How To Blend Cultures, culture comes from climate. If you don’t have the climate, animals, plants, and weather down, it’ll ring false.

You can see more at So You Want To Save The World From Bad Representation.

Step Three

Start to build the humans and how they interact with others. How are the trade relations? What are the internal attitudes about the culture— how do they see outsiders? How do outsiders see them? Are there power imbalances? How about greed and desire to take over?

This is where you need to do even more research on how different groups interacted with others. Native American stories are oftentimes painful to read, and I would strongly suggest to not take a colonizer route for a fantasy novel.

This does, however, mean you might not be researching how Natives saw Europeans— you’ll be researching how they saw neighbours. 

You’ll also want to look up the social rules to get a sense for how they interacted with each other, just for character building purposes.

Step Four

Sensitivity readers everywhere! You’ll really want to get somebody from the nation to read over the story to make sure you’ve gotten things right— it’s probably preferable to get somebody when you’re still in the concept stage, because a lot of glaring errors can be missed and it’s best to catch them before you start writing them.

Making mistakes is 100% not a huge moral failing. Researching cultures without much information on them is hard. So long as you understand the corrections aren’t a reflection on your character, just chalk them up to ignorance (how often do most writers get basic medical, weapon, or animal knowledge wrong? Extremely often). 

Step Five

This is where you really get into the meat of creating people. You’ve built their culture and environment into your worldbuilding, so now you have the tools you need to create characters who feel like part of the culture.

You’ll really want to keep in mind that every culture has a variety of people. While your research will say people roughly behave in a certain way, people are people and break cultural rules all the time. Their background will influence what rules they break and how they relate to the world, but there will be no one person who follows every cultural rule down to the letter. 

Step Six

Write!

Step Seven

More sensitivity readers! See step 4 for notes.

Step Eight

Rewrite— and trust me, you will need to. Writing is rewriting.

Repeat steps seven and eight until story is done.

Extra Notes

I’ll be honest— you’re probably going to need a certain amount of either goodwill (if you’re lucky enough to make friends within the group you’re trying to represent— but seriously, please do not make friends with us for the sole purpose of using us as sensitivity readers. It’s not nice) and/or money to get to publishing level. 

The good part is the first three steps are free, and these first three steps are what will allow you to hurt others less when you approach. While you’ll still likely make mistakes, you’ll make a few less (and hopefully no glaring ones, but it can/does happen) so long as you do your due diligence in making sure you at least try to understand the basics.

And once you feel like you’ve understood the basics… dive down even deeper because chances are you’re about to reach a tipping point for realizing how little you know.

People will always find you did something wrong. You will never get culture 100% accurate— not even people who were born and raised in it will, because as I said in step five: cultures have a huge variety of people in them, so everyone will interact with it differently. But you can work your hardest to capture one experience, make it as accurate as possible, and learn more for next time.

10 Tips for Writing (Good) Smut

so. let’s do this.

About a year ago, I had to read a book for my school’s summer reading assignment called How to Read Literature Like a Professor by Thomas Foster. It’s not a bad book, pretty decent actually, but there was this one chapter about sex scenes in literature. And one of the first sentences was along the lines of “writing sex is boring.”

and I did a double-take. Bc in my experience, that is absolutely not the case, and if you do find yourself bored while writing smut, then you’re not doing it right. See, Thomas’s main argument was that there’s only so many ways you can write sex scenes, because there’s only so many sex acts you can choose from. (My boy Thomas is clearly a vanilla dude, but let’s not hold that against him.) 

But one of the most important things to keep in mind while writing smut is that it’s not necessarily just about the act itself. So while Thomas is right that there are limits as to how many ways ppl can have sex, he failed to realize that writing sex is about a LOT more than that. And I’m gonna prove it to you.

NHL!Bitty, Part IX - ‘Loose Lips Sink Ships’

(Alright, you guys voted for #2, so enjoy!)

Eric gets hit on in a hotel bar during All-Star weekend. For the first time in a long time, it’s not because he’s a famous hockey player.

It would be very flattering, except the man trying to seduce him works for Jack’s PR firm, and bro is playing fast and loose with some seriously confidential information. 

NHL!Bitty Masterpost!


It’s been a long, exhausting day. Between the flight, check-in, the press junket, the photo ops, all Eric wants is to get a little bit drunk with the guys, grab some dinner, and fool around in Jack’s hotel room. Hopefully in that order, but he’s open to fooling around whenever.

He must have a dopey smile on his face thinking about the debauchery he’s been looking forward to all week when he realizes someone is watching him from across the bar. 

Tall, nice hair, professional, and he’s looking at Eric, no, at the empty chair next to him. And he’s walking over. 

“Is this seat taken?”

episode two :: Yuri realizes, suddenly and terribly, he might be a little bit in love.  


Victor doesn’t even try to go to sleep.  He just lays in bed with his laptop, watching the thirty-seven takes of Yuuri trying to get “hi, I’m Yuuri Katsuki, and I’m the Bachelor” out of his mouth.

Don’t they know who I am?” Yuuri slurs on screen.  

Yuuri, you have to put the champagne bottle down, you have to pretend to be sober,” Phichit says off camera, all authority gone from his voice.  He’s trying not to laugh.

Phichit,” Yuuri says, and he takes a big swig from the bottle, bubbles pouring down both sides of his lips. “You can’t tell me what to do.  I’m Yuuri Katsuki, and I’m the motherfucking Bachelor.

Maybe More Than Friends (Peter Parker x Stark!Reader)

Word Count: 4,729

Peter Parker x Reader

Summary: After Peter joined the Avengers, you were basically forced into spending a lot of time with him, being that your father is being that your father is the Tony Stark. Your relationship starts off fairly innocent being as Peter was fairly shy around you, and not to mention that Tony had strictly forbid you two from dating. But despite your best efforts, the sexual tension between you two is undeniable. And one night while the rest of the Avengers are out on a mission, leaving you and Peter alone, the sexual tension comes to a peak. Peter is 18 in this fic.

Warnings: Extreme fluff. Language. Smut smut smut

You remember the first time you met Peter Parker. It was embarrassing, to say the least.

It was a pretty unexpected meetup. You didn’t even know that he was in the tower. You were working in the lab with another one of your dad’s employees, helping design a suit for the new Avengers recruit, Spiderman. It was your first major job, and you were so focused that you hadn’t even noticed when your dad and Peter walked in.

“Hey, Y/N, meet the new recruit, Peter. Peter, meet Y/N, my daughter.” Tony said loudly as he entered the lab, startling you and making you hit your head on the wall.

anonymous asked:

KASEY & JASPER !! i live your children so much,, their dynamic is so cute and fluffy and honestly i crie everytime. please tell is some fluffy things about them, stuff they do in their relationship. also the first time they said i love you, and the first time they held hands, and just their first everything because :,)) wow they make me happy !!

Aw thank you Anon!

As for fluffy things, I’ll talk a little bit about them in Witchy Cops/Meridian’s Witch Detectives, hehe:

  • Jasper is not a morning person (he stays up late usually, because he brings his work home), so Kasey normally wakes up early, gets ready, and makes Jasper his morning tea. Jasper doesn’t like morning breath (Jasper is so particular, about so many things AHA), so Kasey only kisses him after he’s brushed his teeth. Kasey also likes to sing in the morning while Jasper’s just waking up, just like Top 40, and usually makes Jas dance with him 
  • The first time they kiss, its after years of being close friends, and both of them kind of skirt around liking each other. (Kasey thinks Jasper doesn’t want a relationship, especially not with someone he works with, but Jasper is only afraid of letting others get close to him) But after they solve a big case together, THIS SORTA HAPPENS (sorry its so rough, ill finish it soon!!)
rant for hufflepuffs

hello it’s ur friendly neighborhood hufflepuff here.

now, i have something that i need to get off my chest. i hate, hate, hate how hufflepuffs are only known as being cute, fluffy, adorable, little beans. i HATE it. yes, hufflepuffs are cute and stuff but THAT’S NOT ALL WE ARE.

you hear gryffindor, you think “brave.”

you hear ravenclaw, you think “incredibly intelligent.”

you hear slytherin, you think “ambitious.”

you hear hufflepuff, you think “bean!”

no. that is NOT all we are. do you know how long it took me to accept being a hufflepuff? a very long time. i took my first sorting test on pottermore three? years ago. i got hufflepuff and was incredibly disappointed. i immediately made another email just so i could retake it. i got ravenclaw and was happier, but not incredibly happy. so i made a third email. i got gryffindor and was off the charts on the happy graph. you want to know why i was disappointed on getting hufflepuff? because i wanted – and still want – to be more than just “an adorable little bean.” i want to brave and intelligent and ambitious but when you’re a hufflepuff, you’re just an adorable little bean. also, hufflepuff’s traits are completely ignored. WE ARE LOYAL, DEDICATED, HARD WORKING, PATIENT (not me hahah), KIND, FAIR AND TOLERANT (once again, not me at times) PEOPLE. WE ARE NOT JUST BEANS.

a year later i made a fourth email so i could retake the pottermore test to decide once and for all what house i am in. i got hufflepuff. and while i wasn’t the happiest, i began to think.

cedric diggory, a 17 year old boy who out of all of hogwarts, was chosen to be in the triwizard tournament. a 17 year old boy who told his peers to stop wearing those badges which showed unkind feelings toward his competitor. a 17 year old boy who felt it would only be fair to give a hint to his FELLOW COMPETITOR in that same tournament about a task. a 17 year old boy who didn’t have to tell his competitor about the task, who didn’t have to tell his competitor that they would both be winners if they grabbed the trophy at the same time. it would’ve been so easy to just keep his mouth shut and not tell his peers anything, to keep his mouth shut and not tell his competitor about the task, to just lunge for the trophy. but he didn’t. he was fair and he was kind and he was brave until the very end of his too short life.

newt scamander, who was expelled from his school because he decided to help his friend and take the blame for a prank that went too far. who tried to calm a teenage boy who didn’t understand the powers he had. who cared so much about these creatures, he couldn’t let harm come to them. newt could have just let his friend be expelled for her prank, he could’ve let the teenage boy just suffer for his own, he could have just let the ministry take his magical creatures but he didn’t because he’s kind and he’s caring and patient and tolerant.

nymphadora tonks, who was a hufflepuff, lacked the ability to behave properly in class yet got outstanding marks. who became an auror when she left school. who gave birth to a son, also a hufflepuff - mind you, yet went immediately into a war with her husband, unsure if her husband and herself would make it out of this war alive. tonks could have chosen a safer job, she could’ve stayed with her son in safety, but she didn’t because she was a smart and brave and hard working and dedicated and loyal hufflepuff.

hufflepuffs are loyal to their friends and family. they are hard working and dedicated when it comes to school work, and work in general. they are patient and tolerant when need be. they are fair and kind to people who deserve it, and even sometimes to those who don’t. they care deeply and they deserve more than to just be deemed as “adorable.”

i am a proud hufflepuff and i am absolutely sick of just being seen as adorable. i am so much more than that. i am loyal, hard working, dedicated, kind, fair, and even patient and tolerant at times. but i am also intelligent, i am ambitious, i can be sarcastic and sassy like you’ve never seen before. i am brave in my own way. and so is every single hufflepuff out there.

hufflepuffs deserve so much more than to be deemed as just adorable. they are so much more than that.

  • You were looking for a job, any sort of job, just to get some money and SURVIVE in this crazy society we live in.
  • You weren’t a massive k-pop fan and you weren’t exactly up to date with the popular groups but when you saw an opportunity to work as a BigHit staff you immediately jumped on it.
  • You had heard that they were a very nice and well-run company so it looked very interesting to you.
  • When you miraculously got the job you could not believe your eyes.
  • It was a rather simple job in a sense : you had to help the boys out as much as possible when you were needed.
  • There was one very important rule : don’t catch feelings for the members.

‘Do you not fucking speak english?!’ You screamed over at Bucky. The two of you were meant to meet for dinner at one of your favourite restaurants after you had finished work. You booked a table there for 6, giving you enough time to get home and change before you got there.

‘Yes, I speak over 30 languages’ Bucky yelled back at you, taking off the gym clothes he wore to meet Steve earlier that day. According to your boyfriend you had said seven so he thought he could finish at the gym at 6;30 giving him half an hour to get ready. Only when he got home you sitting on the bed, all dressed up and fuming from having to wait for him.

‘Ok. I’ll say what I said to you yesterday is Spanish. Seis!’ your hair was pinned back and styled so you took it out, facing the mirror but you could still see his reflection.

‘You said seven!’ He was now taking off his hoodie and shirt. You were so mad at him but he looked so good.

‘I said six!’

‘No, you didn’t’

‘Why would I book a table at six then tell you seven? What, you think I want to spend quality time with my glass of fucking water’ you finally turned to look him in the eye, but he couldn’t look at you. For a second you weren’t sure if he was angry or upset. But then you heard the metallic whirring of his arm, it was very distinctive when he was angry 

‘I’m not doing this right now’ He turned away from you, his hands in the air. Then stormed off into the bathroom, slamming the door hard behind him.

‘Good. Fuck off then’

On Finding Your Own Magickal Associations/Correspondences

I see lots of people repeating the advice to create your own magickal associations (also called magickal correspondences) and not rely too heavily on others’, but I don’t think I’ve seen anyone explain why. Perhaps that’s because the reason seems self-evident for those of us who already “get it,” but I know there was a time when I didn’t get it, so I wanted to create this post explaining the reasoning behind making (or, more accurately, recognizing) your own associations.

It’s extremely simple, even if it isn’t immediately obvious: 

Magickal associations are not immutable, objective fact, and they’re not even strictly necessary: The sole purpose of a magickal association is to associate an item (like herbs and ritual tools) or easily understood concept (like colors and days of the week) with a specific type of energy. This is because our brains are excellent at observing, recognizing, and remembering patterns, so we can use items or concepts that we are already very familiar with to help us remember what certain energies feel like by associating the two together; that way, when you remember the one, you’ll naturally remember the other as well.

This is important because it can be difficult to call up exactly the right energy you need without a little cognitive help (after all, it’s subtle and intangible), and it gets even more complicated when you need to call up and remember multiple kinds of energy for a single working (which is a lot of the time).

All of this is why magickal associations are both optional and customizable: If you have no trouble remembering and calling up specific energies, you probably don’t need associations. And if the color green doesn’t remind you of abundant, wealthy energy, but ruby red does, then use ruby red for your money spells; the important thing is that you’re calling up the right energy—the way you get to it doesn’t matter.

So how do you find your own associations?

Well, that’s pretty simple, too: 

  1. Become familiar with a particular energy pattern
  2. Decide which item(s) or concept(s) remind you of that type of energy

That’s it!

There’s no objective right or wrong, only what is and isn’t appropriate for you. You are a unique individual with a unique perception of the world: Your geography, culture, heritage, personal belief system, and cognitive abilities all play a part in how you recognize certain energy patterns in the world around you, and it stands to reason that other people with different experiences will recognize these energies in different ways—so don’t worry about what everyone else is doing. Trust your own intuition and it will lead you to the energy you need in the way that you need to get to it.

[Note: Some things in this world carry their own unique energy signatures. Once you recognize the unique energy signature in such an item, it’s up to you to decide whether you want to keep using that item in association with other types of energy or focus only on the innate energy it already contains.]

bts personality analysis: seokjin

Originally posted by rapdaegu

i think that jin is a really malleable person; someone that can adapt to people based on their personalities. he has the ability to modify his behaviour to suit other people like how he is silly and goofy when around maknae line and is much more reserved and insightful around the hyung line, people who are closer to his age. jin is honest and knows when to assert himself. he knows when he is to be respected and isn’t shy when giving his two cents in a conversation. even though he is seen as confident and outgoing, i think that jin is insecure. he needs praise and he needs to have validation and thats why i think bangtan gets a little hard for him at times because, as we all know, jin doesn’t get the appreciation he deserves. he said that he tells himself that “acting young will make him look young” and i thought of the confidence tactic ‘fake it til you make it’. i think jin is trying really hard and i just want everyone to fuckin appreciate all his hard work can we agree kim seokjin is an angel???? i also have noticed how impatient jin is and i wouldn’t go as far as saying tactless, but i do see that jin is very open about his opinions which can be brutal if it triggers a soft spot. 

ive said this a lot, but people think that a celebrities personality is what we see through interviews and reality shows and even logs - but that isn’t the case. we need to remember that kpop is a business and that they manufacture things a lot because at the end of the day, kpop is for entertainment purposes. bighit has done a good job portraying bts as a relatable, chirpy band; this is bangtan’s ‘avatar’. their avatar sometimes gets taken away in livestreams or in meet-ups and we can see who they truly are and i think that jins alternate, ‘variety’ personality is more or less the same in real life. variety seokjin is goofy and tells dad jokes and that is his shtick, but in real life we see that same hilarious seokjin except a lot more intense. jin is intense and passionate. we see that on stage, majority of the time when he is singing awake. it’s really beautiful to watch the awake performance and to hear his emphasise on certain words that he is most passionate about and you can tell that he has gone through a lot. 

jin has said on many occasions that he felt most loved after the fire era when he Evolved and did hand kisses and told jokes and you could see how happy he was and it made me really happy to see (when did this turn from an analysis to me just complimenting jin????). 

i also noticed while looking through the bts ch+ channel some things that kind of gave me more insight to jins relationships with the bts members. one relationship that kind of had me kind of wondering was jinkook. it’s hard to work out because i’m aware of the age gap but i’ve noticed that jungkook doesn’t necessarily acknowledge jin and it made me quite uncomfortable to watch. i do enjoy the back and forth that jinkook have and the banter is fun but i don’t know - it seems like theres some tension there sometimes (if anyone wants video receipts hmu). i’m not trying to start some god damn ship war so pls chill in my ask box this is just what ive noticed. i think that jin and jimin are a good pair because jimin has a habit of making people feel good and validated which is exactly what jin needs most, and i think jinmin’s relationship is healthy and beneficial for both of them!! i think that taehyung really does look up to jin as an older brother and has a great amount of respect for him and ive noticed that he always laughs at jins jokes!!! a+ concept!!! jin and hoseok are nice to watch because i think jin loves to learn and hoseok is always there to help him learn. even though hoseok is younger than jin, he is a teacher figure to jin. jin respects hoseok. jin and namjoon!!! one of my favourite relationships!! i think that jin is himself when he is around namjoon because he knows that namjoon isn’t one to judge, which i think is something that jin fears. he drinks up namjoons insight and gives his own insight back and i just really love the dynamics of this friendship. jin is most pliant when around yoongi, since yoongi’s character is pretty intense, i wouldn’t have thought that jin would be roommates with him; it just doesn’t seem like a good fit. but it really is kind of perfect. jin has the ability to adapt his personality and knows yoongi’s boundaries and that’s why i think he is the best person to be yoongi’s roommate (i rly cant imagine yoongi rooming with someone from maknae line - what a trainwreck). 

kim seokjin - intp/sagittarius. optimistic, honest, impatient, adaptive.
