brief explaination

So YOI is just full of ingenious, subtle and entirely graceful dialogue. No scene is wasted and every conversation, however brief can explain so much with just a few lines. I’d like to take a moment to talk about one of the last scenes in episode 10 when Yurio and Victor are on the beach. In all honesty, I thought about this scene a lot and it took me a little while to really, truly understand what was going on here.

Deconstructing Values in Rick and Morty

I like the way Rick and Morty episodes tend to deconstruct and comment on values and themes. So here’s a brief post explaining how it usually works.

The way the episode is usually constructed is this:

  • at first the value that’s being deconstructed is introduced, only to be mocked and riffed on immediately
  • Throughout the rest of the episode, the value is being debunked, criticized or made fun of.
  • Then, near the end, the episode introduces something that shows the value isn’t completely worthless after all, and hints at a more constructive and useful way for said value.

Here are a few examples.

Hey, could you please recommend me some books or information to read about sigils? Thank you so much

Ooh have I got a thing for you - [my sigils FAQ blog page]. If you can’t view that, you can find a rebloggable version [on my old blog], but some of the links might be dead / broken at this point. (I hardcore need to rewrite that for this blog, don’t I?) Imma copy and paste the links and resources section for you from my blog page, just in case:

A brief video explaining the small amount of representation Queer people get, and the quality of representation we get, even when we get it.

Pretty Little Thing - Star Trek

“Ok I’ve never requested before but since you need more mybe you could do a Captain Kirk one where the reader thinks he’s cheated on them?”

James Kirk waved a hand over the door sensor and stepped forward, expecting to enter your quarters but bumping into the still closed door instead. He took a step back, confusion spreading across his face.

“Computer, open the door.” He commanded the door pad.

“Access to this area by Kirk, James T, has been revoked.” The mechanical voice sounded.

‘Revoked? Shit’ He thought, stepping closer to the door pad. He pressed the intercom button and spoke in a strained whisper so no one walking down the hallway would be able to hear.

“Come on Y/N. Let me in.”

Nothing happened.

“Please! I can explain.”

A brief second passed before the door slid open. Kirk stepped in quickly, where he was immediately hit by a flying boot.

“EXPLAIN!?” You shouted. “I don’t want your damn explanations you ASS”

He ducked as another boot flew towards him. He straightened and looked over at you. ‘Shit’ he thought again. You stood a few short feet from him, breathing heavily. Your hands were clenched into fists and shaking at your side. Your face, and eyes were red and streaked with tears. Through your puffy lids, he saw burning anger that both terrified him and made his heart sink.

“Listen I—“ He started.

“Did it not occur to you that as I security officer I do in fact actually WATCH THE SECURITY TAPES!” You moved to throw one of your pillows at him.

He caught it and lurched forward, grabbing your arm.

“Y/N PLEASE! Calm down” He begged

“I cannot believe you threw everything we have away for an alien trollop you met YESTERDAY!” You hissed, yanking your arm away

“I didn’t throw anything away Y/N! She kissed ME!”

“Oh please Jim. Everyone in Starfleet knows Captain Kirk can’t keep his hands off pretty little alien ambassadors.” You stepped back and sank to edge of your bed. Anger fading to sadness.

He cautiously sat next to you. He clasped his hands together and rested his elbows on his knees, dropping his head to look at the floor.

“Y/N you know the Akitei. They don’t have the restraint we do. You didn’t finish the tape did you?”

“If I saw anymore I would have had a heart attack in front of everyone in security.” You mumbled.

“Then you missed the part where I pushed her away and told her I was taken didn’t you? I think…I think she was trying to seduce me to gain my support for their request to join the Federation. They’re desperate.” He unclasped his hands and moved one to your knee. “I promise you Y/N. You are the only pretty little thing I can’t keep my hands off of.”

You lifted you head and looked at him. Puppy dog blues gazed at you through his stupidly long lashes. A half grin tugged at the corner of his mouth as he raised an eyebrow at you questioningly.

“I hate you.” You mumbled, rolling your eyes. His grin widened and he bent forward to plant a quick peck on your forehead.

“I love you too.” He said, thumbs moving to wipe away the tears lingering on your cheeks.

“And I will be reviewing the rest of that tape Kirk.” You stated, as he began to pepper your jawline with nibbles.

“Mmmmhmm.” He mumbled, dragging his mouth over yours. You could feel his shit eating grin through your lips and shook your head as you moved to wrap your arms around his neck.

I have a quick question, I'm a very new witch and was wondering how to charge sigils? Also, do you know of any sigils for dancing or joy?

There are very many ways to charge sigils. It is almost impossible to list them all in one post, because people are constantly coming up with new and creative ways to charge spells every day. My standard rule of thumb is, if it creates its own energy or can be used to create or amplify energies in any way, it can be used to charge sigils. Of course, that’s how I view it, and you’ll likely see other people say differently.

Here are some examples of various charging methods that one might use:

I hope that helps you! Good luck!

Who the lucky recipient is:  @apetunias
Who you are (if anonymous, just write ‘anon’): @ikathemadhatter
Character/s and/or ship/s: Shizuo, Izaya, Mikado, Anri, Kida; hint of Shizaya
Quick summary (or anything you want the recipient to know): I think this brief comic explains itself :°D? Hope you like it <3

so here’s my general procedure for dealing with reactionaries (and especially their enablers) online:

  • explain myself once, not for the benefit of the reactionary, but for the benefit of anyone with an open mind who may be watching
  • don’t respond to rhetorical tactics intended to mislead or derail (at most, i might explain what the tactic is, where it comes from and what it’s intended to do. especially if it’s a swarmfront tactic)
  • dont repeat myself just because the other guy refused to listen. if i think i can qualify my point (not for the reactionary but for anyone who may be watching), then I do that, but once.
  • keep the encounter brief. explain myself to my own satisfaction then leave (or block, or lock the thread, or report, or whatever I can do in that situation). they will try to have the last word, but I don’t need to get it back, it will only be a waste of time after I’ve done what I actually want to do.

basically my goal is not to argue but to explain my point. not to the reactionary, but for the benefit of anyone watching.

Something like this has been on my mind for a while, and those space brushes gave my just the right boost of inspiration and motivation to make it happen! 

Constellations are Capricorn and Aries, my headcanon sun and moon for this pragmatic, stubborn, impatient boy. To explain in brief, one of my favorites things about Keith is how his personality is made up of two seemingly opposite concepts – He processes things in a grounded, down-to-earth way that contrasts with his fiery, passionate bursts of emotion. It’s something that so many people seem to have a hard time striking a balance with in characterizing him that nothing but (what I affectionately call) The Cardinal Earth/Fire Struggle seemed to suit him more perfectly. For this reason, both this boy and these signs are very, very close to my heart.

I’d love to do a series of the Paladins like this (since I have zodiac thoughts for them too!), but honestly I have no idea if any other constellation is going to look that good as a crown like dang.

EDIT: This is now available for purchase on my RedBubble!

Kevin uploaded a brief video explaining his departure from the grumps and him following his dreams. Let’s wish him good luck for what’s next !!

Children of Buddha, if explained in brief, there are ten kinds of causes and conditions by which all oceans of worlds have been formed. What are the ten? They are: because of the Buddha’s mystical powers, because they must be so by natural law, because of the karma of all sentient beings, because of what is realized by all bodhisattvas developing omniscience, because of the roots of virtue accumulated by both bodhisattvas and all sentient beings, because of the power of the vows of all bodhisattvas purifying lands, because bodhisattvas have accomplished practical undertakings without regressing, because of bodhisattvas’ freedom of pure resolve, because of the independent power flowing from the roots of virtue of all enlightened ones and the moment of enlightenment of all Buddhas, and because of the independent powers of the Universally Good. This is the summary explanation of ten kinds of causes; if I (Samantabhadra) were to explain it in full, there are as many as atoms in an ocean of worlds.“

I finally got to do a review for the amazing Age of Youth [청춘시대]  Korean drama. This is hands down, the best korean drama I’ve ever seen in regards to completely capturing what it’s like dealing with college, new environments, and coming to terms with your past. Nothing is sugar coated, and at times it seems like there wasn’t even a camera there. It’s just 5 girls living together - dealing with creepy men, societal restrictions, and ghosts from their past that want to swallow them whole. In my video I explained a brief synopsis before going into a spoiler review (and I mention when I’m going into it) but seriously even if you don’t watch my video look up this kdrama and give it a watch. It’s slow at first, but it’s realistic that shit doesn’t start going down until something triggers it. [=
