➳  Happy 20th anniversary Inuyasha !

On November 13, 1996, the first chapter of the manga series Inuyasha was published in Japan’s Shonen Sunday magazine. Thank you Rumiko Takahashi for giving us such a beautiful series and tons of characters that we adore! Inuyasha had a big impact on a lot of people’s childhoods and a lot of us are still obsessed with the series. Thank you ♥

I saw Jumanji on TV today...

…and instantly i thought it would make a neat homestuck crossover

(sburb as jumanji, betas playing first and getting sucking in the game - all of them, teleported on their lands maybe; alphas finding the game later and trying to finish it. but instead of monkeys and lions the game gives them really nasty creatures, like lord english and jack noir. and underlings maybe?)

(40 years has passed in real world, but only 3 years has passed in-game)

(this is stupid, i know. but i love crossovers so much)

so i think about Soul a lot, ergo I think about the GIANT ABDOMINAL INJURY he acquired and how it would probably take at LEAST a month of intense home care and frequent check ups to make sure the paper cut that expands half his body isnt getting infected or creating scar tissue that might impede the function of some of his more important organs (cough HIS HEART cough) and how simple tasks like bending over or running would become 40% more painful and difficult to pull off

and how much more domestic help he’ll need from his partner

WE LOVE ZAYN

Through this horrible situation, we can come together and do good.

Here are opportunities for YOU to do something good in honour of Zaynie.

Donate to the BRITISH ASIAN TRUST (a charity that supports South Asians in England) in honour of Zayn. For the next week your donation will be QUADRUPLED. Since I hate people who simply talk, my donation is below. Because of these generous matchers, my $10 donation becomes $40.

SVT-40

Semi-automatic rifle chambered in 7.62x54R, many consider it a failed weapons platform. It never succeed in replacing the Mosin Nagant 91/30, it did very poorly as a sniper rifle variant, and many Soviet troops found it difficult to use, mostly because they were more familiar with the simple Mosin. In spite its short production run and service life, the SVT-40 has become a popular surplus rifle; not quite a Dragunov but a step up from a Mosin Nagant. (GRH)

“Man, I’ll be 34. But honestly, I want to become 40 soon. Currently, right… guys who are 34 like me. How do you feel? Just asking the guys.

How do you feel? Like in all sorts of… Like what sort of position do you hold at work? And then is 34 still young? Or do you think of yourselves as old men? Stuff like that.”

/22 days before turning 34 Riida!~ :)

People are annoying the shit out of me with their goddamn comments.

“Relax.” “She’ll come when she’s ready.” “Enjoy your last moments of peace and quiet while you can.”

You know, when you’re not currently 40 weeks pregnant that’s really fucking easy to say. But I guarantee that when you were 40 weeks pregnant, or when you become 40 weeks pregnant you will be as anxious and impatient and excited as I am and want to finally meet and hold your baby.

So please, shut the fuck up. Lol.

Taylor Swift's "Style" is already one of pop radio's forty most-played songs.

This past fall, Taylor Swift’s “Blank Space” managed to reach the official top forty at pop radio ahead of its official radio impact date.

This Sunday evening, “Style” will achieve that milestone prior to even being declared Swift’s next official single.

According to Mediabase, “Style” was pop’s 40th-most-played song during the seven days between January 3 and January 9. It commanded 781 spins within that window.

Insofar as it is gaining airplay at a rapid rate, it will face no difficulty retaining its top forty position through the Sunday issuance of Mediabase’s official airplay chart. It will thus become the third top 40 pop hit from Swift’s “1989” album even before being formally declared the project’s next single.

Obviously, such a declaration is a mere formality at this point — Swift provided “Style” with high-profile exposure during the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, her label boss Scott Borchetta teased that he is “leaning towards Style” as the next single and a whopping fourteen monitored Mediabase pop stations added the song this week — but the song still deserves immense credit for so quickly gaining steam.

An even more impressive performer from an audience standpoint, the song’s weekly audience impression count of 6.55 million ranks as the format’s 35th-greatest.

— In addition to making gains at radio, “Style” was also one of only a few songs to enjoy a digital sales boost during the first tracking week of 2015 (since interested in many singles was inflated during Christmas week, they inevitably posted weaker numbers during the week ending January 4). “Style” moved 56,000 copies last week after moving 50,000 during Christmas week.

— “Style” also rises to #71 on the weekly Billboard Hot 100. While not yet back to its #60 peak, it is obviously on the move. (x)

ive witnessed the football dudebros in my grade become like 40% more gay this year and I’m living…..I just saw one of them rub another’s back and then lean over to whisper in his ear

npcs in Catriona’s life

(part 1)

He grew up in a life of luxury, although the family did fall on hard times for a number years as they struggled to maintain their crumbling manor. He was blessed with a fine education and although not Eton or harrow raised, he still made it into Oxford’s prestigious law course. Going on to be come a barrister, earning his silk and becoming a QC by 40. His career continued to rise and at 51 he became a judge. William had married Valerie Knollys at the age of 32 after meeting at the Badminton horse trials where she was competing. Catriona was born when he was 39 years old. At the age of 60 he was diagnosed with Alzheimers and lives in a home for the rest of his life.

Valerie Rowe ( formerly Knollys ) - Mother

An accomplished equestrian, Valerie was born to a middle class family in the outer Hebrides. She had a very regular upbringing, enjoying her passion for riding at a school, until her family’s business boomed and they were able to afford their own horse. Valerie soon new that she was wanted to be a professional rider and focused all her efforts on it. Her grades did slip but soon she had made a name for herself and at the age of 20 met William. They had a happy relationship through out their lives. Catriona and her mother spent much time together riding although they could never connect on a deep level due to Catriona’sacademic pursuits. A year after Catriona left for Oxford, Valerie was diagnosed with breast cancer, dying 9 months later.

Gideon Beaumont - Lover

Gideon Beaumont is an arrogant Irish mercenary, born in Dublin to a working class family. He had a rough childhood, getting involved with criminal activity (although never convicted of anything) until the age of 20 when his father pushes him into joining the army. He completed the training but deserted before he could be deployed. He then took up with some foreign mercenaries and worked in Kenya, where he meets Catriona. She was hired by an arms dealer to plan the theft of a rivals stock and Gideon is one of the men who is hired to carry it out. At first there is a dislike between them, although he makes his attraction to her very clear. Slowly, in the months they are there, they grow closer and fall in love. Their relationship however, is far from healthy. They fight constantly, leading him to cheat out of revenge and her to manipulate him. They both move to London but live separate until they eventually decide to break up. Catriona moves away and it is the last she sees of him.
