How do you throw throwing knives properly?

well, first off you need a good throwing knife. knives are like people: most of them are good for one thing but not for others, like steve with throwing shields and steve with applying basic common sense. or like thor with electrocuting things and eating spicy foods. or clint with shooting arrows and basically any other facet of human life. 

anyway, a good throwing knife will be quite sharp on the point but blunted along the sides–sticks in the target but doesn’t cut your hands. the point and blade should be pretty thick, and the fewer perforations in the blade the better. throwing knives have to withstand a hard impact without breaking, so you want a decent quality knife, and the heavier it is (within limits) the less force you’ll need on your throw. 

you’ll want a good target to learn with, something big and soft enough that you’ll hit it and that your knife will embed so you know where you hit, but not so soft the knives fall out. deadpool may volunteer for this job. do not take him up on it. the commentary is not worth it.

grip the tip of the knife vertically between the pad of your thumb and the side of your index fingers. hold it firmly enough that it won’t slide in your grip but not too hard. 

stand with the foot on the side of your throwing hand pointed at your target, spine straight. start close to the target (another reason not to use deadpool–blood splatters farther than you think) and work your way back as you figure things out. the biggest part is learning to throw with enough force and rotation so the pointy end sticks in your target. it’ll take time, and there’s really no shortcut for just putting in the practice hours. 

if this does not work out for you, i recommend grenades for all your low-accuracy distance combat needs. 

I wonder if you ever felt like I abandoned you….  
If you ever thought I should have fought for you…

The truth of it is I never left.  
I’m still here.  
And I do fight for you - every single day.   
Not to win you…. not to trap you or cage you…  
But for your happiness.

I wage war on myself day in and day out for you.  
Tearing strips off myself, swallowing hatred and tears….  
So if you hate me because I abandoned you…. don’t worry…  
….. I hate myself for it too…

Happy 46th Birthday, David Tennant! // April 18, 1971

My parents used to always report tales of me running around in the back garden, talking to myself. But I wasn’t talking to myself - I was making up stories … That was just what I did, I just ran around and talked to myself.

At its end is where you will find the peace that eludes you, and at its end lies the answer you refuse to see.

Friendly Reminder

that while you can make jokes about Feyre manipulating Lucien in ACOWAR by using his mating bond with Elain, that will not make him change. It will make him worse. His condition will get worse as the female he saw as a friend, manipulates him again and again. Just as Tamlin did to him.  

Darling, you hurt me. But like I said, I will always love you. Even if I don’t want you in my life anymore I will never stop loving you. I just, realized I’m better without you.

When it all comes down to it, I’m most angry at Netflix for daring to blame Sense8′s cancellation on ‘viewership’ when it was their job to promote Sense8 in the first place. There was a fucking two year hiatus between season 1 and 2 and not once did I ever see any kind of promos the way they promoted OITNB or 13 Reasons Why or any of their other shows (minus The Get Down). Two whole years and just radio fucking silence. They knew this show was expensive, they knew they needed more people to watch it, and yet they did jack shit to do anything about it. 

Blaming the cancellation on a lack of viewers is just a way for them to not have to take responsibility for their actions. We are not to blame for Sense8 being cancelled, the fault it ALL on Netflix for refusing to promote the show for two goddamn years.
