what if widow was a bit like an actual insect/human fusion. kinda like “the fly” in brundle’s early stages, sort of:
coarse sticky hairs protruding from her body and back. she can stick to walls with them.
a like a thin layer of mucus around her body
she doesn’t need to eat, but whenever she does she vomits acid over her foood
her teeth and nails sometimes fall off leaving a trail of slime
she has super strength and can rip off a man’s arm easily.
in a pinch, she can also(painfully) grow out underdeveloped raw gory insect limbs from her body(for example, when she wants to save a falling sombra and her arms are occupied) she doesn’t do this often, since she has to rip them off afterwards, eat them up and spit acid to close the wound.
super heightened instincts and stamina. while she feels no “nuanced emotions”, she runs basically solely on instinct and gut feeling.
“I want to show the ballet world it’s possible to do all these things and not be rail-thin or have blond hair,” Misty Copeland told Self Magazine last year. “I feel like I’m representing not just the little brown girls but all African-American dancers who have come before me who were never promoted because of the color of their skin.”
In 2015, Misty Copeland became the first black woman to achieve the status of principal dancer at the American Ballet Theater. But as many of our own readers have pointed out in emails and comments addressed to HuffPost Arts & Culture since, Copeland was not the first woman of color to succeed in a dance world historically filled with white, lithe bodies. Before her, for example, there’s Raven Wilkinson, one of the first African-American ballerinas permitted to join a ballet company in the 1950s. And cousins Janet Collins and Carmen de Lavallade, who were some of the first principal dancers of color with the Metropolitan Opera.
In response to Copeland’s shoutout to the dancers of color who came before her, we reached out to Brown Girls Do Ballet, a start-up organization devoted to addressing diversity in ballet programs, to ask young dancers in their network to spotlight some of the role models inspiring them. In four beautiful responses, aspiring ballerinas Shalom Johnson, Amelya Rivera, Olivia Winston, and Amirah Muhammad celebrated eight dancers who motivate them in their own careers.
Question: What about emotions? I get caught up in my emotions more than I do in my mind.
Answer: “Mind”, in the way I use the word, is not just thought. It includes your emotions as well as all unconscious mental-emotional reactive patterns. Emotion arises at the place where mind and body meet. It is the body’s reaction to your mind - or you might say, a reflection of your mind in the body.
For example, an attack thought or a hostile thought will create a build-up of energy in the body that we call anger. The body is getting ready to fight. The thought that you are being threatened, physically or psychologically, causes the body to contract, and this is the physical side of what we call fear. Research has shown that strong emotions even cause changes in the biochemistry of the body. These biochemical changes represent the physical or material aspect of the emotion. Of course, you are not usually conscious of all your thought patterns, and it is often only through watching your emotions that you can bring them into awareness.
The more you are identified with your thinking, your likes and dislikes, judgments and interpretations, which is to say the less present you are as the watching consciousness, the stronger the emotional energy charge will be, whether you are aware of it or not. If you cannot feel your emotions, if you are cut off from them, you will eventually experience them on a purely physical level, as a physical problem or symptom. A great deal has been written about this in recent years, so we don’t need to go into it here. A strong unconscious emotional pattern may even manifest as an external event that appears to just happen to you.
For example, I have observed that people who carry a lot of anger inside without being aware of it and without expressing it are more likely to be attacked, verbally or even physically, by other angry people, and often for no apparent reason. They have a strong emanation of anger that certain people pick up subliminally and that triggers their own latent anger.
If you have difficulty feeling your emotions, start by focusing attention on the inner energy field of your body. Feel the body from within. This will also put you in touch with your emotions.

After rewatching it for the zillionth time, I timed it. Six seconds, give or take a couple of fractions. Now you might be thinking: “What the hell, what’s the big deal about six measly seconds?”
Well, after conducting research, I discovered that the average platonic hug is three seconds long. THREE. Their hug was twice that.
Anything over three seconds is considered intimate, potentially or actually romantic. Now, there are other factors that indicate the level of intimacy between the two persons in a hug; i.e. Body language.
For example, it is considered a more intimate/romantic gesture to wrap your arms around the other person’s neck or shoulders. To nuzzle your face into their neck is also a nonverbal indicator of intimacy.
Now, you may be able to argue that Dean’s response, body language wise, apart from the duration of the hug, could be interpreted as intimate yet still platonic.
But according to science? Castiel’s body language could be considered intimate, bordering on romantic, and definitely NOT platonic.
There have been numerous reports of hotel guests discovering something a bit more morbid than dust bunnies under their beds; arguably, the most disturbing thing that somebody has discovered under their hotel bed is a dead body. One example of this took place on 10 July, 2003, when a man checked in to the Capri Motel in Kansas City. He immediately noticed a foul odour in the hotel room and complained to the hotel staff. They informed him that the room had been cleaned but there wasn’t much they could do about the bad smell. He went back to his room where he slept for three nights, finally leaving when the noxious smell made him vomit. The cleaning staff were called to the room where they were horrified to discover a badly decomposed body stuffed under the bed that the unwitting guest had slept in for three nights.
Thoughts I haven't seen on the Character from episode 9 yet.
(Aka: NOT assuming they are Keith’s mom or Prince Lotor)
Here is some additional speculation that doesn’t really fit in the other theories I have seen presented. I scoured the episode for a moment Keith and the Galra are close enough to get a relatively accurate size comparison. I mean, they are crouched so there is some flexibility here, but they appear to be around the same size.

once more the blind Kageyama AU breaks my Heart
so here have some fluff
ngl tho bless @craziiwolf their AUs are a+
“No, Kageyama, that’s my hand.”
Kageyama fumbles, running his fingers across the spiker’s soft skin. Hinata stares up at Kageyama as he feels around to find his shoulder, surprised Kageyama’s touches were as gentle as they were.
The two of them are training. That’s what they’re calling it, but they both know it’s more like re-educating Kageyama on where parts of the body was, for example the shoulder. Kageyama had told Hinata he wanted to still be able to still give high fives, and hit Hinata on the court, and so Hinata had decided to help.
And now here they are, quietly sitting on the setter’s bed, Kageyama’s hand gently traveling up Hinata’s arm to his shoulder, and settling there.
Kageyama didn’t move his hand for a while, but as he begins to slowly move his hand forward, across the area where his shoulder met his neck, Hinata can feel himself start to burn with embarrassment. Kageyama’s hand was moving up against his cheek, and then -
“Where am I?”
“This is my cheek, Kageyama.”
Kageyama moves his hand gently over his face, then down to cup his chin slightly.
Hinata starts to wonder about the reasons for this ‘training’. Kageyama seems to know his way around Hinata perfectly fine. The setter thumbs at Hinata’s bottom lip, and Hinata wants to look away. Kageyama’s leaning in all of a sudden, and then their foreheads are touching and then their noses and then and then -
Kageyama totally misses.
It’s still endearing, though, a kiss on the corner of his lips. Hinata starts snickering, and then bursts into full out laughter as Kageyama leans back, confused.
“What happened. Where was I?!”
“You didn’t even kiss my lips, Bakageyama!”
“Damn it - ”
“Stupid Kageyama, next time you want a kiss tell me!”
Times like these, Hinata finds himself being grateful, if only for now, of Kageyama’s lack of sight. This way, Kageyama wouldn’t see the blush on his cheeks.

This event is seemingly obvious if you have read part 5. If you HAVEN’T read part 5, stop what you are doing and read it. Don’t worry, we’ll wait. … Done? Good. In short: the event will be muses swapping bodies with other muses (Example: Jotaro swapping bodies with Joseph.)
A Few Rules:
Characters with stands keep their stands/other abilities (Example: Hamon or Spin)
Stand blogs are exempt from this, because stands swapping bodies with stands would get confusing but they CAN interact with blogs who’s character’s bodies have been swapped with other characters (Example: RHCP talking to Akira who swapped bodies with Okuyasu).
This event will run from March 1st until March 7th
I have been going to a skincare clinic. They have 6, 9 or 12 appointment packages, and the larger your package is the cheaper the appointments are (starting at $1000 per appointment for the 6 appointment package). Expensive I know but looking good is worth it. During these appointments they look at your body head to toe and address any concerns you may have. It’s an all in one in an appointment.
This means that they aim to get rid of every imperfection on your body/face.
For example, in one appointment they might 1) zap the freckles on my face 2) Laser the keloid scar I have on my arm (notoriously tricky to get rid of) you can also use laser therapy to get rid of acne scars 3) microexfoliation on arms and legs for super smooth skin 4) give me a facial 5) manual extractions 6) end with green light therapy to boost collagen and heal the skin. It’s really a great value for money, and all the people working there are certified dermatologists or nurses. I highly recommend all the treatments I just mentioned, they’re really effective! Even if you can’t afford appointment like this, I would suggest asking your dermatologist to focus on one or two.
I also highly recommend the facial at the mandarin oriental spa in NY. Ask for them to focus on lymphatic drainage and your face ends up super contoured!
Lastly laser hair removal is a LIFESAVER! I used to get the WORST ingrown hairs and stubble down there because my hair is really coarse and fast growing (like I’d shave and the hair would start grow back after maybe a day. No joke) and now I don’t even need to shave! It hurts a little bit but take an Advil and ask them to go slow and you’ll be fine! It’s expensive but honestly it’s worth it.
