im in one of my Moods which means im crying over mike wheeler and i just . Love the idea of lil baby bi mike not knowing why hes so much more protective And Ready To Throw Hands If Someone Looks At Will Wrong than he is abt any of his other friends and he writes it off as He Love He Friends So Much but then he’ll see will laughing and melt, or look at him drawing, or Literally Refuse To Leave His Side For A Good 3-4 Days and mike Has This lil like ‘........oh.’ moment an DIES OF BABY BI-NESS

STARTS SCREAMING AT YOU BECAUSE I HAVE NO OTHER WORDS JUST TEARS AND SO MANY EMOTIONS FOR BABY BISEXUAL MIKE WHEELER

mike wheeler who loves all his friends so much but it’s always been different with will. something intense and powerful forming from his chest and spreading throughout his body - he’s protective, he’s observant, everything is magnified a hundred times over when it comes to will

when the realization comes, mike feels so stupid because it’s… always been there. he’s always loved him he just couldn’t put a name to it, it’s been a PART OF HIM, but there is that initial freakout when he’s just like BUT IT’S WILL MY BEST FRIEND? BOYS? GIRLS???? WILL???? AHHHHHHHH. and he is a mess for a little bit but he picks himself back up bc mike wheeler’s got a good head on his shoulders

Shooter Talk

I just heard a commercial on the radio talking about bulletproof backpacks?? And bulletproof vests?? And how a school is having drills where they have their children put these backpacks in front of their bodies to protect themselves?? It’s smart- but it’s awful that we should have to worry about this. Shooters breaking into schools? Murdering children? My school has had each class explain to us: what we should do in this situation. One teacher of mine was very real about it. She said “I don’t know about y'all but I’m not sitting still if a shooter is in the school. I’m going to grab what I can and fight back.”

I just find it really sad that this is what’s up in the world.

Thoughts?

There was a loud groan, and the ceiling at one corner of the room began to descend swiftly toward the ground.  Narwhal flicked two fingers up in that direction, and shored the ceiling with some forcefields, but I saw other portions of the ceiling begin to sag, gallons of water pouring through the gaps in the ceiling tile.

Hm, seeing Narwhal in action makes me think: Why can’t Narwhal kill an Endbringer? We’ve been told extensively that Narwhal can cut through people with forcefields. What is protecting their bodies to the point where a forcefield through the stomach won’t kill them, or won’t be able to go through in the first place?

“Strider!” Legend bellowed, over the noise and chaos, “Get us out of here!”

TG: what
TG: oh okay
TG: sorry i was listening to this sweet beat i just made hang on

Homestuck aside, I’m guess Strider might be a mass taxiporter and also a coolkid DAMMIT I SAID HOMESTUCK ASIDE!

A voice sounding from the armband, female, synthesized, except I couldn’t make it out over the noise.

Ah, shit, Strider’s female? Now I have to resort to AUs if I wanna make more references… or just pretend Dave’s a girl, that works too.

You want to call yourself her daddy?

What’s her favorite color? What’s something that always makes her laugh? What are her goals? Her dreams? What is she afraid of? Do you know what she likes do to when she wants to relax? Do you know what helps her when she’s had a bad day? Can you recognize when she needs extra love because she’s feeling needy but doesn’t want to say anything? Can you tell when she’s bothered by something? Do you know her favorite way to be held, to be cuddled, to be wrapped up in your arms? Are you her safe place to go to when the world gets scary? Does she feel safe opening up to you? Does she feel like she can tell you anything? Do you punish from a place of love/caring, for correction of her destructive behaviors, for her own good? Do you see her as a person, a whole complete, complicated person? Do you make her feel respected and cherished? Do you protect her? Do you take care of her?

Being daddy is way more than fucking her, and if you’re not ready to take her heart, mind, body and soul, and protect & treat them with all the love, care, tenderness, respect that you are capable of giving, then you’re not her daddy. You’re just some asshole who wants to be called that. And you can get fucked.

do you realize that top/bottom discourse is actually affecting young boys? no you don’t because you’re only thinking about how hot it is, how “masculine” being a top is and how “feminine” being a bottom is, and being aggressively homophobic and heterosexist

amazing fact: mlm can do whatever the fuck we want during sex totally divorced from our personalities. whatever we decide to do is good and pure as a free flowing stream of spring water. we can do whatever feels good because it feels good and it’ll keep being the purest shit we’ve ever experienced in our lives and have no bearing on our masculinity because newsflash: we are both men and masculine as fuck (if we want to be) regardless of our body types or what we enjoy

Sorry for the hiatus 😔
(College wants all my time and money)

But during the breaks between classes I finished Apollo Justice 🍂🍂🍂

✨Let’s just say I cried a lot - and these two are totally dating✨

Crystal Terminology

Originally posted by fullmagicthings

Below is a list of helpful terms to know when working with gems and minerals. It includes terminology on various crystal shapes and forms. Terms specific to mineral shapes have “(form)” next to them for ease of reference.

Abundance (form): An abundance crystal consists of one long quartz crystal with many small crystals clustered around its base. Its function is to attract wealth and abundance.  

Adamantine Luster: A particularly brilliant shine as shown by a specimen such as a diamond.

Amorphous (form): Amorphous crystals, such as obsidian, have no particular shape. Energy flows rapidly through and amorphous crystal as it has no rigid internal organization.

Aura: The subtle bio-magnetic sheath that surrounds the physical body, providing a protective zone that extends for about 18 inches to 3 feet from the body and contains information about a person’s physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual state of being. 

Aura Crystal: A crystal specimen, usually of the quartz variety, that has been coated with metal (i.e. gold, titanium) in a vacuum chamber resulting in an iridescent sheen.

Ball (form): Balls are usually shaped from a larger piece of crystal and may have planes or flaws within them. They emit energy in all directions equally. 

Barnacle (form): A barnacle crystal has many small crystals covering a larger crystal. 

Bridge (form): A bridge crystal grows out of another larger crystal. It assists in bridging gaps and bringing things together.

Carat: The standard measure of weight for precious stones and metals. A carat is equal to 0.007 oz (0.2g).

Cathedral Quartz (form): Cathedral quartz may appear to be composed of several convoluted pieces, but these are in fact all part of the main crystal which has multiple terminations with at least one point at the apex.

Channeler (form): A channeling crystal has a 7 sided facet at the front of the termination and a triangular face on the opposite side. It channels healing energy or information from higher sources. 

Cleavage: The way a mineral or rock breaks along a certain plane, or in a certain direction.

Cluster (form): A cluster has many points bedded, but not necessarily fixed, into a base. The crystals may be small or large. 

Companion (form): A companion crystal has two crystals entwined and partly growing in each other, or a small crystal that grows out of the main crystal. 

Cross (form): A cross formation has one crystal at right angles to another, usually larger crystal. 

Crystal: A naturally occurring substance whose atoms are arranged in a regular manner. 

Crystal System: The systems in which crystals are grouped based on their symmetry. There are 6 crystal systems: cubic, monoclinic, triclinic, trigonal/hexagonal, orthorhombic, and tetragonal. 

Diamond Window (form): Flat faces at the top of crystals are called windows. A diamond window is large and connected to the apex and the base.

Double Terminated (form): A crystal with two naturally faceted ends. 

Dull Luster: A shine that reflects very little.

Earthy Luster: A non-reflective mineral luster.

Egg (form): A crystal cut in the shape of an egg. 

Elestial (form): An elestial has many natural terminations and folds over a multilayered crystal. 

Etched (form): An etched crystal that looks as though hieroglyphs or cuneiform writing has been inscribed on its faces. 

Faces: The External flat surface that make up a crystal’s shape.

Fault Line: An inner flaw or break in a crystal that refracts light and appears to divide the crystal into sections. 

Fluorescence: The optical effect whereby a mineral appears a different color in ultraviolet light than in ordinary daylight. 

Fracture: The distinctive way a mineral breaks.

Friable: Minerals that easily crumble are referred to as friable.

Gemstone: A mineral, usually crystal-like, which is valued for its color, rarity, and hardness.

Generator (form): A generator crystal has six facets meeting equally in a sharp point. 

Geode (form): A geode is contained within an outer form. When opened, it is hollow with many crystals pointing inward. 

Geologist: A scientist who studies the Earth and its structure and composition.

Gridding: The placing of crystals around a building, person, or room for protection or enhancement energies.

Habit: The general shape of a mineral.

Inclusion: Any material that is trapped inside a mineral during its formation, often producing a rainbow.

Iridescence: A play of colors that looks like oil on water that occurs when light reflects off internal elements of a rock or mineral. 

Layered (form): Plate-like crystals such as lepidolite are referred to as layered. 

Luster: The way in which light reflects of the surface of a mineral.

Manifestation (form): One or more small crystals are totally enclosed by a larger crystal. 

Matrix: The bedrock on which crystals are formed.

Metallic Luster: A shine like that of polished metal.

Mineral: A naturally occurring solid with specific characteristics, such as a particular chemical composition and crystal shape.

Mineralogist: A scientist who studies minerals.

Mohs Scale: A scale of hardness used in classifying minerals. It runs from 1 to 10 using a series of reference minerals, and a position on the scale depends on the ability to scratch minerals rated lower.

Occlusion: A mineral deposit within a crystal, which usually shows up as cloudy patches, spots, or a ghostlike image depending on the color of the material.

Opaque: A substance or material that does not let light pass through it.

Ore: A rock or mineral from which metal can be extracted

Phantom (form): A phantom crystal appears ghostlike within the body of a larger crystal. 

Pleochroic: In a crystal, appearing to have two or more different colors or shades of color, depending on the angle from which it is viewed. 

Point (form): Points may be natural or artificially shaped. A single crystal point has a faceted pointed end and the other end tends to look ragged where it has been separated from a cluster base. 

Prism: A solid geometric figure with a set of faces parallel to one another.

Pyramid (form): A crystal with four sides on a base, but the base itself may be squared off if the crystal is natural (i.e. apophyllite) rather than artificially shaped.

Record Keeper (form): A record keeper crystal has clearly etched pyramid shapes on its side or sides. 

Resinous Luster: A shine like that of resin.

Scepter Quartz (form): A scepter quartz is a large central rod around one end of which another crystal is formed. 

Seer Stone (form): A seer stone is a natural, water polished stone that is cut to reveal an inner world. 

Specific Gravity: The ratio of a mineral’s weight compared to the weight of an equal volume of water.

Square (form): A square crystal consolidates energy within its form. It’s useful for anchoring intention and grounding. 

Streak: The color of a mineral’s powder. It is less variable than the color of the mineral, so is a more reliable identification tool.

Striation: One of multiple, usually parallel grooves or scratches on a rock surface, produced by abrasion associated with glacial movement, stream flow, a geologic fault, or meteoric impact.

Tabular (form): A tabular crystal has two wide sides resulting in a flat crystal which may be double terminated. 

Transmitter (form): A transmitter crystal has two seven-sided facets with two perfect triangles between them. 

Tumbled (form): Refers to stones that have been polished in a large drum with grit, resulting in a smooth and often shiny stone.

Vitreous Luster: A shine like that of glass.

Vogal Wand (form): A crystal with specially created, indented facets with specific angles down the sides of a quartz wand. 

Wand (form): A crystal in the shape of a wand, either naturally occurring or artificially cut.
