What if they find Shiro and he's been trapped in this time/space bubble thing and they can't get him out because the only way for him to leave is for someone else to take his place in the bubble. Everyone starts panicking and arguing trying to think of a plan to save him, but while they're distracted Lance just walks right up to the space prison and takes Shiro's place without even thinking about it because obviously - in his opinion - Shiro's way more important than he is.

I say this to you all the time, and I’m hesitant to do it again. But if you knew me, if you knew about where I’ve been and about the nightmares I have at night, if you truly knew how much you mean to me and how much you’ve simply been for me, you’d understand. I can’t afford to lose you. I couldn’t take the pain that would come with that. My heart is physically incapable of seeking anything but to love and be loved, and that’s been screwed up for me plenty of times but you’re full of everything I could’ve hoped for in one person. I can’t say this certainly, and that’s only because I don’t truly and completely know what you see, but I think that I can thank you for seeing me and being satisfied.

  • Good thing about Supergirl: Season 1 ended in a way that we can consider a series finale.
  • Bad thing about Supergirl: Season 2 has been shitty but Alex and Kara are still there plus we got introduced to Lena, Maggie and M'gann so I can't just simply stop watching.

The thing you mentioned about butterflies not always being so good; you are so on point. Comfort and security is a much better feeling to be in a relationship with. I've been looking for that lately, bcuz I'm tired of the butterflies/anxiety, but I can't find it. How did you find it with Sasha? Whenever I try to make friends with a guy first, it's either I end up developing feelings too quickly or they do which makes me uncomfortable. I want that level of comfort before a romantic relationship.

uh, I don’t know to be honest! it all just flowed naturally? 

Sasha was never too intrusive or demanding, he’s a good company, so it was easy with him and then it just started to grow.

The thing is that you don’t FIND it on purpose, you know. It find you when the time is ready. Life is always spinning and taking turns, so all the changes will eventually lead you to where you are supposed to be!

So..try to not rush things! I mean…Don’t go for what makes you uncomfortable, I think I don’t even need to say that because it seems like you aren’t the person who would do that. I think with the right person you can tell in the beginning they are a decent human being, they won’t give you negative connatations.

There’s right time for everything, so let the life flow!

I've been trying to look for methods everywhere but I can't find any; how do you create endless patterns?! I must learn how!

To be honest I’m still learning myself lol, but I can tell you the basics of how to create patterns (or at least the way I’ve been doing it so far).

First off I use Photoshop (I use CS6 but previous versions should work too).

I create a big ass file, usually over 4000x4000 pixels with a resolution of 300 pixels/inch. Take note this is only important if you’re planing to have the pattern printed, if you’re doing it exclusively for Tumblr, for example, it’s best to work with 72 pixels/inch and a smaller canvas size, but that’s up to you.

I place two guides to mark the center of the canvas and four more around to make a square. I use Snap for the guides in the center as they literally snap to it. Leave Snap on as it’s important for the next part.

For this tutorial I’ll make the pattern very simple, say hi to bulbaderp. 

I copied/flipped the leaves and placed them into the horizontal, vertical and diagonal spaces to explain how to make the pattern seamless. The guides in purple are basically the edge of your tile, to create the endless effect you have to cut the parts of your drawing that are outside this limit and place them on their opposite side.

Like this 

Notice the leaf in the diagonal side covers also the horizontal and vertical sides. You’ll have to cut the drawing into three different pieces and move them like you would with the other two leaves.

Now cut or copy the drawing bit, paste it with Paste in Place (SHIFT+Ctrl+V) and drag it to the opposite side while pressing SHIFT so the bit stays in the same height as its counterpart, otherwise the pattern will look crooked. With Snap the bit should place itself right next to the guideline with ease.

Make sure the element is riiiiiight next to the guide. Using Snap helps, but it tends to be very finicky and sometimes be as 1 mm off. Remember to always zoom after placing the bits to make sure they’re on the right spot.

The final result should look something like this.

Next crop the canvas like this

You can add a color for the background or hide the background layer to make your pattern transparent. 

Now give it a test run. Go to Edit/Define Pattern, name your pattern and click ok. Then create a new photoshop file, add a layer and fill it with any color, then go to Layer/Layer Style/Pattern Overlay, choose your pattern and click ok.

Ta-Dah!

Once you’re used to this method you can start experimenting by adding more elements and shaping the tile in different ways besides a square.

TIPS:

* Remember to keep another save file with your drawings in case you mess up and need to start over.

*Instead of cropping the canvas you can merge the layers, copy it into a new file and do the Define Pattern thing, in case you want to fix the placement of the drawings.

*When working with more elements think of it as a game of tetris. Place your objects in a way they all fit together harmoniously. IF POSSIBLE avoid placing the same drawings together. Flip it or change its size in case you’re not working with too many elements.

*I usually use copy instead of cut in case I don’t like how the final pattern looks and I want to move the drawings around, but to make the tutorial clearer I used cut.

If you feel ready to create something more complex I recommend this tutorial:

So I remember seeing a post somewhere about all of the things that we as a Phandom came up with and agree as fanon and one of them was Danny being a level 7 ghost? No one could figure out where it came from but I’ve been rewatching DP recently and it’s actually a canon thing?? Like in Double Cross My Heart the Guys in White mention that Phantom is a “class 7 ecto entity” and I totally forgot that was mentioned in the show???

isn’t it astounding that Ruin hunted for his body for thousands of years after Preservation trapped him in the Well? the manipulation, coercion, and subtle influences he put into motion to try to find the pieces of his body, the fight against Preservation every step of the way: through the Lord Ruler, who sent legions of slaves to the Pits of Hathsin to collect and retrieve it; the Mistborn and the Seers who burned it away; and the kandra, who had a suicide protocol to stop him from getting it. truly, Ruin expended incredible effort, all in the name of getting the atium.

he craves that mineral.

Just wanting some karkat love. Found out I'm pretty alone. The guy I love is with someone else and I can't seem to get over them. It really hurts, cause I have been trying so hard but I can't stop having these feelings. Maybe my family is right, I should just disappear. I'm sorry. Ignore this...

I DON’T KNOW IF YOU REALLY WANTED ME TO IGNORE THIS OR NOT BUT..

AND I WANT YOU TO KNOW THAT THAT CRUSHING FEELING IS ONLY TEMPORARY. YOU WILL FIND SOMEONE AMAZING AND THEY WILL TAKE THE PAIN AWAY. THE LONELINESS WILL BE FORGOTTEN AND WHEN THE MEMORY DOES CROSS YOUR MIND, IT WILL AMAZE YOU BY HOW DISTANT IT FEELS. YOU’LL FIND THAT PERSON AND YOU WILL NEVER FEEL ALONE AGAIN.

I can sympathize with the intention behind it, but I’ve only ever seen it done irresponsibly, if not abusively. People either don’t know what they’re talking about, are working off misunderstandings, can’t back it up, or are maliciously trying to spread false rumors about specific users. There have been several occasions where people have spread “OP is a rapist/abuser/transphobe/sexist/acephobe/pedophilie” claims on my posts, either because they confused me for someone else, completely misread my posts, or just want to start hateful drama by exploiting people’s good intentions. I’ve also had people try to tell me that my personal IRL friends I’ve known for years believe the opposite of their own ideologies.

kuzupekos  asked:

What would be a situation where an animal (specifically a dolphin, I'm trying to get all the nuances of the captivity debate) has been successfully rehabilitated but can't go back to the wild?

Good question! 

I asked someone who works with stranded marine mammals because I wanted to make sure that I didn’t get it wrong (and because it’s hard to find official documents regarding it that aren’t low-resolution scans). Their input is in quotes, my commentary is not. 

First off, it’s important to note that the rehabilitators don’t get to decide if the animal is unreleasable - all stranded marine mammals are under the jurisdiction of the National Marine Fisheries Service, a subset of National Oceanic and Atmospheric Association. They also are the ones who enforce the Marine Mammal Protection Act, which is the federal law (supposedly) prevents people from approaching, touching, swimming with and/or generally bothering marine mammals. So no matter where in the country an animal is, or what facility it is cared for at, the scientists with NMFS make the call about if it is releasable. 

Factors that can make an animal unreleasable include age, injuries or physical conditions that prevent everyday function, chronic but manageable conditions, re-stranding, or human intervention/interference. 

Age: “A cetacean determined to be under two years of age that strands without its mother (or the mother subsequently dies in rehab) will almost never be considered for release because they are still dependent calves.”

Most dolphins have a really strong bond with their mothers for a least the first two years of life, and still aren’t “adults” for another number of years. Unassisted babies in social species don’t survive in the wild very well, no matter what taxa. 

Injury or Impairment: “Animals with significant hearing loss, blindness, injuries that prevent or greatly impede locomotion, or animals found to be suffering from chronic but medically manageable conditions will not be released.” 

Some good examples in captivity currently are a rough-toothed dolphin with severe scoliosis, a number of deaf conspecifics, and Winter, the famous bottlenose dolphin who has a custom tail prosthetic to help her compensate for an injury sustained as a calf. 

Restranding: If an animal can’t survive well enough to need to be rescued more than once, it’s probably not going to get released another time.

Human involvement: “Places like Panama City Beach have a huge issue with people feeding dolphins and petting them from boats. Some of these “beggar dolphins” are known and recognizable. If one of these animals got hit by a boat and had to be brought in and it was a known and identifiable beggar dolphin, I don’t think he or she would go back out. Other dolphins in the area imitate their behavior and add to the danger.”

These are all assessed independently and in combination with each other, so a single issue may not be the sole reason for an animal being deemed unreleasable. For instance: 

“Panama, an old female dolphin who lived with Winter at Clearwater Marine Aquarium, stranded in Panama City Beach very underweight and ill. She was later found to be deaf, but she was also a suspected beggar dolphin and that alone may have been enough to have her declared non-releasable even if she wasn’t deaf. She may actually have been begging because she was deaf.”

i'm with you in trying to figure out who that baby is, i've been snooping around the playlist lineup for ages and i can't find miles anywhere?? did phil abduct this child ???

the only conclusion is that this is their casual way of tellin us they finally adopted 

I know I’ve gotten older than the intended demographic, but I feel like good shojo manga is really hard to find now.

i really hope that dc announcing that wonder woman is bisexual sets off a string of dc and marvel announcing that all their superheroes are gay to try and one-up each other. like, tomorrow we wake up to find that marvel has admitted that captain america has been bi all along. then dc counters by making batman gay. next thing you know black widow is canonically ace. and no one stops until all their superheroes are somewhere on the lgbt+ spectrum

They said he was crazy. They said he’d never find him, that he was just some myth. That his sightings were just the result of some people taking one too many drugs.

But he knows he’s real, and he is going to be the one to find him.

He’s never gonna give up, not until he finds him.

Not until he finds Mothman.

  • What she says: I'm fine
  • What she means: How can Liv and Ravi NOT end up together? Okay, get this. We've seen Liv fall in love with Lowell only to question their relationship because there was no foundation. They weren't friends. If Liv wasn't a zombie they wouldn't be together. And Major. They're friends, but he can't accept her being a zombie. Can't accept that she changes with each brain, but she's still herself. HOWEVER, Ravi has single handedly been there for Liv through it all. He is her best friend. They have the inside jokes, the teasing, the loyalty. And you know what else Ravi does? Understands. He's made it clear that Liv is Liv, not the current brain she happens to be using. He's even tried cheering up Major by saying "She just needs to eat another brain." Okay? He's cool with it. Without him, Liv is nothing. Nothing. And who has dedicated himself to finding a cure for zombie-ism? that's right. Ravi has. He's tried so hard. And willing to keep trying. For Liv. It's all for Liv. And I can't even believe for a second that this show might reduce these two to nothing more than a quirky friendship I swear to god. Just fukc me uP
