branding iron,

Howdy, my name is Rawhide Kobayashi. I’m a 27 year old Japanese Japamerican (western culture fan for you foreigners). I brand and wrangle cattle on my ranch, and spend my days perfecting the craft and enjoying superior American passtimes. (Barbeque, Rodeo, Fireworks) I train with my branding iron every day, this superior weapon can permanently leave my ranch embled on a cattle’s hide because it is white-hot, and is vastly superior to any other method of livestock marking. I earned my branding license two years ago, and I have been getting better every day. I speak English fluently, both Texas and Oklahoma dialect, and I write fluently as well. I know everything about American history and their cowboy code, which I follow 100% When I get my American visa, I am moving to Dallas to work in an oil field to learn more about their magnificent culture. I hope I can become a cattle wrangler for the Double Cross Ranch or an oil rig operator for Exxon-Mobil! I own several cowboy hats, which I wear around town. I want to get used to wearing them before I move to America, so I can fit in easier. I rebel against my elders and seniors and speak English as often as I can, but rarely does anyone manage to respond. Wish me luck in America!


This identity I did for the first Destiny crucible tournament in Russia. I wanted to create something that have a vintage look, inspired by the old soviet space exploration posters.

I was born on a child farm

by reddit user IamHowardMoxley

“There is no free will.”

Those are the first words I ever read. I woke to them every day for many years. They were written on a sign. The sign was hung above the opposite row of bunks in the Sleeping Barn. I have no memories from before the farm; I assumed I was born there.

None of the children there knew why we were here or where we came from…nobody even knew how long we had been at the farm. Some children aged. Some didn’t. I can’t remember much, but that’s what happens when you are not given too much to remember.

Keep reading

Saw a man refusing to let his pregnant wife off the porch because he “saw a rat the size of a dog and I will NOT let it bite you, please go back inside darling”. Made me wonder how protective the Maheswaran’s were of their baby.

Day 1.

I walk into my first shift as a veterinarian. My. First. Ever. Shift. My first ever shift as a vet and an emergency one at that (I also questioned why I decided to make being a new grad harder for myself). I walk in wearing my brand new, freshly ironed scrubs with my stethoscope hanging around my neck, my new name tag pinned perfectly on my top depicting that “yes, I am a doctor now” (despite the fact I do not feel like one) and my Mini Vet Guide tucked securely in my left pocket. I spent a majority of the day studying (read: freaking out followed by spending 3 hours laying in my bath reflecting on why I stupidly decided to become a vet), with a feeling of absolute and utter raw fear building in the bottom of my stomach. To say I was petrified was an understatement.

“Your first consult is here”, says the vet on shift with me. I swear if there were ECG leads hooked up to me in that moment, the trace would depict a sudden surge of tachycardia (on top of my pre-existing, anxiety induced tachycardia). I stare blankly at the computer screen, the consult note says “acute onset vomiting and diarrhoea”. In that moment, everything I know about vomiting and diarrhoea vanishes. Great. All I want to do is run. 

I walk out to the waiting room. “Hello, my name is Olivia and I am one of the emergency vets, I believe your little one isn’t well”. Introducing myself for the first time as a veterinarian to a client and patient has got to be the most surreal experience. I still sometimes feel like I am still a student in first year, learning the basics of anatomy and physiology. I still cannot believe that I have made it through those 6 grueling years and am standing here today in front of my first patient. 

I get a thorough history, perform my physical examination and explain to the owners that I am going to grab a blood pressure and temperature in the treatment room. I walk out the back, my patient in my arms, and feel like I am in another world. It is up to me to decide what to do with this sweet little dog. I have to decide if I want to admit to hospital, what to treat with and what the plan is going to be. It is all on me. I finally decide on my treatment plan, and it is announced that my second consult is waiting - a dog with a fishhook in his leg. Onto the next one. 

I have been thrown into the deep end working in emergency. I feel as though I am doggy paddling my way through it. I ask a heap of silly questions, I second guess myself constantly,  I do dose calculations 4-5 times just to be sure that I am not under or over dosing a patient. I constantly run my treatment plans past someone more senior. All I want to do, is the best I can for my patients. 

I survived day 1. I am now at day 22 and am still surviving. 



  • Peter and MJ being nice to each other and hanging out. 


  • Peter saying anything along those lines which he’s never done outside of a few instances where they weren’t dating but he still had feelings for her and was sort of fishing.
  • Peter and MJ being so casual about their break up. Again…not in character for them. Even putting aside how if you know, you read older stories they’d be trying to hook back up like they did in the 70s…and the 80s…and the 90s…and the 2000s….and even in Slott’s run pre-Superior…This is just…they honestly wouldn’t be as chill about things as they are. 
  • Peter wouldn’t joke about his relationship with MJ like that. They went through too much serious shit together and he’d still love her deeply, and no not just as one of his best friends. I mean in a straight up romantic way. They were together for a long time, went through a lot of stuff which deepened their bond and he has demonstrated on multiple occasions that he legit needs her as a presence in his life. 

Honest to God read ASM #122, ASM #149-150, KLH, Parallel Lives, the Clone Saga, Spec #241, JMS’ run or even Renew Your Vows, and then come back here and explain to me exactly how this shit is believable beyond Marvel’s in-house policy of not letting them be in a relationship and Zdarsky doing his best under those constraints but still making it unbelievable in spite of that. And really if ANYONE was gonna make jokes about the relationship it wouldn’t be Peter. He makes jokes sure, but this would be too painful. Then again he’s not been all that upset about losing MJ ever since BND so this is in character for the bullshit post-OMD Spider-Man’ we’ve had for way too long now. 

  • Didn’t MJ leave Peter because being in his life was too hard and dangerous or some bullshit like that?
  • Shouldn’t they be talking about how MJ is hypocritical for working for Stark given her reasons for ending her relationship with Peter in OMIT and Superior and you know Stark being an asshole who betrayed them both in Civil War I?
  • If MJ’s whole hangup about leaving Peter was that being a part of his life was too stressful and dangerous for her a) why is she hanging out with him now and b) why are they not together!  If she hasn’t got that hang up then why isn’t she making a move? If he sees she hasn’t got a hang up why isn’t HE making a move? Again, character consistency or just plain realism people!
  • Surely if Peter was going to reconnect as a friend with one of the most important people in his life after a massive deal was made about him ‘losing her’ and such was the subject of multiple scenes and subplotssuch a notable event in the life of the titular character of the series shouldn’t happen off fucking panel!

  • So well done Zdarsky. You managed to handle the Peter/MJ relationship in such a way that you were a few less turds ahead of everyone else in recent years.

Fuck this, I’m gonna go read Renew Your Vows.

Since you Muzzled us for 15 hours...

We had to come up with some way to pass the time, of course.

@ask-sadisticdark & @ask-psychoanti

Presented lovingly to you by some (muzzled) Lovelies and Raisins:

We present: Mr. Dark as the Grinch.

You’re a mean one, Mr. Dark
You really are an ass
You’re as cuddly as a teddy if the thing were full of glass, Mr. Dark.

You’re a horrible host with a cheaply made suit!

You’re a loser, Mr. Dark
Your snake would bite it’s tail
Your desk is made of cardboard and your insults weak and frail, Mr. Dark.

I’d only go near you with a thirty foot branding iron…

You’re pathetic, Mr. Dark
You’re but a shadow on my life
You’ve got all the sweetness of an antsy Anti with a knife, Mr. Dark

Given the choice between the two of you, I’d take the Antisepticeye!

You’re a foul one, Mr. Dark
You’re as salty as the sea
You’re as friendly and as kind as an angry swarm of bees, Mr. Dark.

The three words that best decribe you are as follows: “angst”, “sass”, “spite”!

You’re a fuckwad, Mr. Dark
You’re a king of sinful thoughts
You’re stuck in Anti’s basement with your hand tied up in knots, Mr. Dark.

The persuasion room is a horrid dump heap, filled with the most pathetic of so-called
torture instruments, including a tennis racquet of all things, and a partially rotted chair.

You’re an ice queen, Mr. Dark
With a dress and matching heels
Your makeup’s always perfect while your torture always heals, Mr. Dark.

In all seriousness, Mr. Dark, we’re just a bunch of lovely, silly nerds who love you quite a lot.

Shingen x MC (NSFW)

I was supposed to write something for Nobu’s birthday, and instead finished the Shingen smut I started like two months ago. Sorry, Nobu, I promise I’ll try and get something out before the end of the month.

ALSO, this is my first attempt writing smut so keep that in mind. MC is named after my MC to make it cleaner. Also also, my beta reader is a man who has no knowledge of SLBP, so take that how you will. This is 3k words, so under the cut to save dashes and wandering eyes!

Takeda Shingen is a busy man. Which is to be expected, attempting to unify Japan isn’t exactly easy, and you definitely don’t get to have days off. Even still, everyone needs a break every now and then, and the Tiger of Kai is no exception.
