but i also have no impulse control

anonymous asked:

Could you elaborate on the impulse control? I will begin using less exciting treats. Also I've been using the 300-peck method for longer stays. Thank you!

For impulse control, I like to start with a voluntary leave-it. I have an old tutorial of how I used to teach it here: http://doggydayjob.tumblr.com/post/31936974089/how-to-teach-leave-itoff

Now I teach it through errorless learning. To do that, hold a handful of treats out of your dog’s reach and feed them such a high rate of reinforcement that they don’t think to approach your handful of treats. Gradually increase the time between treats until your dog can patiently wait 5 seconds between treats without trying to get the food in your other hand. Once you get that far, slightly lower your distraction hand and feed your dog a high rate of reinforcement again. Gradually increase the time between treats, then lower your distraction hand again, and repeat.

Once your dog is good with food in your hand, you can work with food on the floor outside your dog’s leash range. Same idea as above: A high rate of reinforcement with the distraction treat far away. Gradually decrease the rate of reinforcement, then decrease the distance.

You can also do these exercises with toys. Toys are much harder because they bring the dog’s arousal level up. Incorporating play into obedience training (and obedience training into play) will also help with this. The idea behind using play with excitable dogs is to teach them to think while aroused. Start by keeping the play very short and use treats (low value treats in your case!) to reward your dog for thinking through arousal. (For example, you may do six behaviours of sit, down, and stand; and you would reward five of them with food and one with just an instant of toy play.) Remember that the longer your dog plays while being rewarded, the higher their arousal level will become. Start with just an instant of play and gradually build up duration as your dog becomes better able to switch from playing to thinking.

Headcanon, Danny has ADHD

Okay, maybe it’s because I have ADHD and I like seeing fictional characters that are like me, but hear me out here.

-He has mild inattentive type, more commonly known as just ADD, (no hyperactivity)
-It’s mild, so he doesn’t NEED medication, but maybe he should. He’s not going to though. I’ll bet he hasn’t even been diagnosed.
-Absent-mindedly touching the inside of a high voltage broken machine while walking in? That’s something I would do.
-Hyper focus would definitely help him while fighting.
-He’s really smart but gets bad grades, even when he studies. He finds studying subjects he doesn’t like to be really hard. See: Teacher of the year
-He seems to overreact to some things and has pretty strong emotions. This doesn’t happen with everyone that has ADHD, but it can be an effect. He screams a lot even when he should be used to what is happening. Call me crazy, but it feels like Tucker and Sam are a lot less vocal in battle than he is.
-I don’t think he means to let Sam and Tucker take a lot of blows and let them take the blame. I think he just has slightly less impulse control than the average person and isn’t good at thinking consequences through.
-ADHD can be hereditary and if you think there is absolutely no possible way that Jack has ADHD or a similar illness then I don’t understand your logic.
-Also there’s that theory floating around that ectoplasm is mildly radioactive and/or Maddie being around it while pregnant could have some kind of effects on her kids. This could have led to Danny having a slightly underdeveloped prefrontal cortex, which is what causes ADHD.
-He’s bad at dodging. I too have spaced out during situations where I should have been dodging and either saw the thing coming at me and for some reason didn’t move or just didn’t think about it and got hit. However, when I’m having a good day I’m really good at it. That’s how Danny can honestly say he’s “a whiz at dodgeball” and still get hit as much as he does.
-He’s really smart but misses obvious things. He also thinks out loud a lot. This is something my brother and a few other people I know who also have ADHD do as well.
-A lot of people with inattentive type (including myself) have a hard time making and keeping friends. Will often have either no friends and a few acquaintances or one or two really close ones.
-If you believe the trans Danny headcanons, that can explain why he hasn’t gotten help yet. It’s a lot harder to recognize and diagnose ADHD in girls and people that were socialized as girls.
-He comes up with puns and insults on the spot. Neurotypicals can do that too, but when you have ADHD, your brain often makes seemingly random connections a lot faster than the average person. This helps with making spur of the moment puns and solving mysteries. Remember how he figured out Spectra was a ghost?

So, yeah. That’s my reasoning. I just honestly think that him having ADHD clears up a lot of things about his character. But, I’m not a psychiatrist. I’m just one guy that has ADD. This is just me speculating.
List of Fucked Up Behaviors I Bet McCree Got From His Time In Deadlock

ALright this is mostly a list of shit I think McCree would have displayed mainly in his early Blackwatch days, it’s in no way concrete or comprehensive so feel free to question or add on to it I love hearing other ppls headcanons

  • Very little emotional control. I feel like Jesse would have been SUPER defensive about the littlest things, probably had a very short temper, but also that his anger faded very quickly bc he got used to suppressing it when it wasn’t convenient to the point that its actually became difficult for him to sustain it for very long; also, though, that he acted on his anger pretty quickly and impulsively for a long time
  • Food hoarding, especially high-calorie snacks and stuff with a long shelf life. He was prob food-insecure for a good portion of his childhood so this one just makes sense to me
  • If he doesn’t know how to do something, he figures it out on his own or it doesn’t get done. He will not ask for help at the risk of seeming incompetent or vulnerable, but also this backfires because if you don’t know how to do something in Blackwatch it’s typically something real fuckin important
  • On that thread, gets really anxious if he doesn’t know how to do something he’s been told to do because a) he expects some type of negative consequence unless he figures it out, b) he doesn’t ask for help because he never considers it an option. Sorta of the mindset of “everything is a test and I don’t wanna find out what happens if i fail”
  • I never really vibe with hcs of him being really uhhh.. openly frightened or anxious due to someone’s behavior? If I know anything about being exposed to a hypermasculine and hostile/violent environment for any amount of time it’s that you learn to hide your emotions pretty damn well.
  • “Good Luck! My Real Emotions Are Behind 7 Proxies! (And Buried Under Years Of Repression And Trauma!)
  • Tries to be outgoing and friendly and get on the good sides of as many people as possible because he constantly expects the backstabbing and underhanded agendas that were common in Deadlock and people are marginally less likely to kill you in your sleep if they think you tell a good joke
  • Reads people, like, scarily well. Can spot someone being fake-friendly from 30 miles away. Generally a great judge of character but undersells his own ability
  • If someone with any amount of power over him is mad about something he did/something he caused to happen, he goes very still and quiet and generally tries very hard to look appropriately sorry while simultaneously trying to not look terrified. Bc he is terrified! He fully expects physical punishments for mistakes, if they’re big enough to cause someone to be legitimately angry then he expects Real Bad Shit
  • Sees favors and gifts as debts to be repaid or tools of manipulation
  • is SUPER POSSESSIVE of his stuff. Gets extremely upset at anyone touching or moving his stuff w/o permission but depending on the person will also be too scared to tell them to fuck off (eg if gabe was going thru his stuff he’d just sit silently fuming and anxious as hell but wouldn’t say a single thing bc That’s The Commanding Officer”
  • Scorns and fears authority simultaneously. He’ll be a smartass if he thinks he can get away with it or if he can tell that the other person is in a jokey mood but at the same time he’s constantly terrified of punishment.

ill prob add more as i think of them but uhhh take this 

Can we talk about Angus for a second?

Out of all the group in NITW, he has it the most together. Mae is stubborn, refuses to grow up and clearly suffers from some sort of mental illness or something that causes her to disassociate badly. Bea is horribly depressed and can’t get out of her own way to take care of herself cause she cares too much about her father after losing her mother (at least I assume). Gregg has crazy mood swings and serious self-doubt.

Then there’s Angus. Outside of leaving work early sometimes to go hang out with his friends, he’s not out committing crimes, he seems to be relatively stable mentally and emotionally, is sort of the voice of reason and as Bea put it, the “glue that holds them together”. From what I can tell he’s also Gregg’s impulse control hah.

Yet of all of them, he has the absolute worst history, being terribly abused by his parents. He went through all of that abuse and turned out to be an okay person who has it relatively together. He could have been a miserable person. He could have suffered horrible depression like Bea or even ended up abusive to Gregg cause of his past, but nope.

Maybe I’m missing some details, but from what I see, Angus is an inspirational character.

A thing you probably don’t know about me is that sometimes I get in this mood where I don’t want to do anything but spend every spare moment binge-watching House, M.D. for several days at a time. I was on ep 2.15, “Clueless,” AKA that one where Wilson crashes at House’s place for a while, when inspiration struck and this Sterek drabble happened. Or… It’s almost 2k words, so maybe it’s a bit more than a drabble, BUT it’s still a drabble in spirit. (Rated T.)

It’s almost midnight when Derek finally shoulders on his coat, locks his office door, and steps out, only to spot Stiles crouched in front of the vending machine at the end of the hall, whacking the glass with the heel of his palm and muttering darkly.

Derek can’t just ignore him; he never can. (It’s a bit of a problem, and everyone in the hospital seems to know it, except for Stiles.) Before he knows it, he’s changed tracks and walked right over. “What are you still doing here?”

Stiles sits back on his heels to look up at him. “Bob ate my dollar and I’m feeling petty so I’m trying to get it back.”

“Bob?” Derek asks, a split second before he remembers that Stiles named the vending machine. It’s just this kind of thing that makes Derek feel guilty for sometimes looking at Stiles’ mouth a little too long, or pausing to let his eyes follow Stiles’ progress down the hall. Stiles isn’t a kid or anything, but he’s still only 26 to Derek’s 32, and he’s still got a year of residency to go. A lot of times, like when he’s jamming out to his iPod while he looks over lab work or doing stupid stuff like naming the vending machines, he seems to Derek more like a college kid than a grown man with a medical license and a house and a girlfriend.

Stiles goes back to hitting the vending machine, and Derek remembers why he originally came over here. “Didn’t your shift end at 7?”

Stiles smirks up at him, and Derek tries very, very hard not to imagine him making that same face in certain… other contexts. “What, you got my schedule memorized now, Dr. Hale? I’m flattered.”

It would make Derek’s life a lot easier if so much of what Stiles said didn’t come out sounding so flirtatious. Derek crosses his arms over his chest. “You’re deflecting.”

anonymous asked:

what do you and sleenie usually do together?? i need date/hangout ideas desperately

we actually just talked about this in our podcast!! since im not gonna force u to listen to that ill just answer again here lol! we live together so when we both come home from work/school on a typical day we will watch a show we’re working on (rn it’s b99 and cowboy bebop mostly), they’ll read a book aloud (rn it’s year of the flood by margaret atwood), we’ll play video games together (minecraft, towerfall) or i’ll watch them play a scarier/harder game, we’ll cook for each other, watch a movie, go on a run/walk, play with babby for hours on end, make art together, talk, etc. 

on date days/nights (usually the weekend) we’ll go out to eat, go to a park, museum, aquarium, beach most frequently but i also have a long list of weird date activities that i will sometimes make us do like “buy a bunch of knick knacks at the thrift store come home and smash them with hammers to opera music” or “hide little bunny figurines around town so people will find and adopt them.” its all about a complete lack of impulse control 

speakingintothevoid  asked:

Hey, in your recent Poison-Ivy-wraps-Batman-in-kudzu fic you mention that Harley died, and in Sweet you mention that she was "dunked" by the Joker. Did Joker kill Harley at some point? (Also curious if it's related to Harley's red-rimmed irises)

i don’t know who started the whole ‘joker dunked harley in the same chemical bath that jokerized him’ thing, but i stole it and added in some ‘technically this was murder it just didn’t stick’ - it bleached her skin/hair/eyes, interfered with her ability to feel pain (so she’s capable of terrifying feats of strength that basically tear her body apart because she can’t feel that that’s what she’s doing), and interacted weirdly with her schizophrenia (got rid of her tics, reduced her focus and impulse control, worsened her visual hallucinations and susceptibility to delusions) (it also changed how she responds to her meds which is why it’s so much harder for her to stay medicated)

i added the eyes thing because it seemed like something capable of bleaching joker and harley to look like perma-clowns would have other visual effects beyond the usual joker’s-green-hair. also i thought it would be kinda cool and creepy.

(my theory is that the original joker chemical bath idea came about because figuring out what would and would not completely ruin someone’s makeup is a pain in the dick and saying ‘no they actually just look like that’ solves the problem pretty neatly, and once you’re doing more with harley she runs into the same problem/solution)

Addressed to the Damn Doctor by ElloPoppet | 2.5k, T

Spock writes McCoy a letter of confession, despite not quite knowing how to write a love letter. (A super sweet insight into Spock’s mind, especially on his thoughts on the Enterprise’s resident doctor.)

Best Medicine for the Worst Patient by gammadolphin | 8.5k, T

It’s a special kind of hell, becoming obsessed with the laughter of a man who barely even smiles unless he’s high or dying of blood loss. Leonard doesn’t handle it particularly well. (A hilariously frustrating fic in which Bones becomes a little too obsessed with trying to hear Spock laugh just once more.)

Blues March by IntuitivelyFortuitous | 7k, T

Leonard McCoy sees his friends bleed. He loves the blood when it is inside them, flushing their cheeks and warming their skin. When it colors his hands on the operating table, he can think of little but the time he has with them, and a minute is too long to waste. He’s not going to let Spock get away that easily. (Gruesome and sad yet somehow really sweet.)

The Body by therev | 13k, T

McCoy’s consciousness is transferred into an android body after a fatal accident. Spock helps him remember the man he used to be. (Wow a really creative and fascinating fic that could have gone totally wrong if it hadn’t been written by such a talented author.)

Story Time!

Story time with Wesley. This is a client I have worked with for roughly 6-ish months, we’ll call them L - a now 14 month old neutered male lab/mastiff mix - and A - L’s owner who wants what’s best for her puppy.

L and A came to me as a referral around six months ago. A adopted L from a shelter, was told he was a two year old pit bull mix, and has never had a dog before. A lived with a roommate, and L was about 65-70lb. She came to me because L was extremely reactive to people and other dogs, and was cowering away from her roommate and any people who came close to him. She specifically stated she wanted no harsh corrections, no prong collars, no shock collars. I invited her in for an evaluation so I could see what L was doing in person; upon arrival, L was very clearly NOT two years old and not a pit bull. He was very likely somewhere in the 8 month old range, mostly labrador, possibly some mastiff/molosser type mixed in, no bull breed I could discern. He was also extremely underconfident. He shook as he came into my ring, refused all but the stinkiest of cheeses, and peed if I came within about five feet of him. A was almost in tears and told me she hated seeing L so terrified. When I brought Rogue out as a test dog, L erupted into barking and lunging, but could be redirected if he was on the other side of the store. I told A that we could work with him, but it would be a long journey and she would need to go at his pace. She agreed and we started.

The first week I didn’t bother touching on his reactivity. We did confidence building games, engagement games with A, and I even got a tail wag out of him after our first hour. L was a very curious puppy and we were able to get that curiosity to override his fear through small games and easy choices. I learned at this time that A’s roommate was shoving L in his crate and banging on the sides of it when he was in it, and that A had made plans to move back in with her parents when she learned of this. I agreed it was best for both of them. I sent her home with games to play, reintroduction to the crate, and some basic recall/focus/loose leash walking (we found turning around and Premack’s worked best with L for loose leash training).

L recovered quickly once at A’s parents’ house and began to slowly accept his crate. We added in a front clip harness because of L’s size and reactivity - A had a hard time controlling him and I was worried of him injuring her. We started on BAT and LAT for his reactivity toward dogs using Rogue and Remy as decoy dogs. Associates were brought in from the store with stinky cheese and junk food treats to reward when L chose to interact with them - something he picked up on quickly! After a few weeks we were able to do entire classes on foundation work with Rogue on her mat about eight feet from L without him stressing (sometimes Rogue would even get a wiggle and play bow from him). A reported only a few incidents on walks, and all involving dogs rushing straight up to L, but she was able to redirect and get him a safe distance away.

After several months of building up L’s confidence, the once-timid lab mix puppy found his stride. We ditched the front clip harness as A no longer needed it and L now walks on a flat collar and 6ft leash. Recently, A reported that L’s jumping and biting/mouthing was increasing as he grew more confident. We did impulse control games (It’s Your Choice) and implemented 5 second time outs as well as more redirection, but L persisted and A was starting to bear the brunt of his enthusiasm. When she came in with bruises and cuts down her legs, I decided it was time to add in a correction. L would only latch onto her when he would get over excited on his walks - and he would bite her boots and not let go. We continued to work on an out command, impulse control, and A’s ability to recognize when L was going to have a tantrum, but we also added in a basket muzzle (to which he took to wonderfully after the adding of string cheese) for safety and a light leash correction. He responded well to the correction and didn’t display signs of stress. He would refocus better and finish his walk more or less peacefully. 

We have since removed the muzzle and A is now recognizing L’s excitement limits better. She still employs the leash correction if appropriate, but has reported that walks have gone well. We are continuing to work with him on impulse control and channeling his exuberance into good life choices, but I’m really, really happy where A and L have come. In L’s training, A and I have both compromised and found solutions that fit L the best and have created a happy, loved family member. All four quadrants of operant conditioning have been used with L, along with counter-conditioning, Premack’s Principle, 300 Peck, and BAT. We also are working on some focused heeling and tricks for fun! 

It’s been a long journey for L and A, but clients like them are why I do what I do, and why I keep an open mind and train the dog in front of me. 

if you would like to help my household but also would like a material good in exchange

my roommate makes INCREDIBLE soaps and bath bombs for incredibly reasonable prices, and they, too, would like to be able to pay bills and the like


youve heard me complaining that they smell too good and that i have to resist the urge to eat them (which is true, i am That Kind of actual certified crazy person with poor impulse control who gets the urge to put everything in my mouth) and i will say that the bath bombs i honestly like better than Lush’s stuff for moisturizing my skin

also!  one of our friends is very allergic to most nice soaps, but doesn’t have a reaction to this stuff, so if you have sensitive skin, these are probably a good bet for you!

A Thousand Moments {a shallura shortfic}

Rating: G/T (some sexual references)

Words: 1500

Notes: So @mayuuunaise posted about Shallura-as-exes in the shallura tag {here}, and I don’t have impulse control so here’s 1500 words of angsty regretful pining I guess. Also I based my description of Older Shiro on @herrolddrawsthings picture of Shiro with a beard {here} because I’m weak and predictable and I have a beard kink. And yes I also leaned on my own Shiro-is-Altean-and-can-do-magic theory because again, I do not have impulse control. Enjoy!

{Also on AO3}

Allura fiddled with the engagement band around her wrist, her thumb rubbing over each stone set into the slim metal bracelet. It did nothing to alleviate her nerves. She chewed at her bottom lip as she stood on the grand steps of New Altea’s Royal Palace, surveying the ranks of the Peace Guard lined up across the courtyard. The deep blue of their uniforms offset the gold highlights of their belts and sashes, and for a moment she imagined herself back in old Altea, before the war and Zarkon and her ten-thousand-year sleep.

She shook her head to clear the rush of nostalgia. No time for that sort of thing. Not today.

Over the horizon, the Voltron Lions emerged into view. They flew in formation, a tight V that swung low over the Royal Palace, roaring in the dazzling sunlight. The assembled crowd cheered in appreciation as the Lions circled back around and landed at the far side of the courtyard.

Prince Romin leaned down to murmur in Allura’s ear: “You look nervous.”

“It’s an important day,” she replied, trying to keep her voice even. She silently cursed herself for fidgeting, and forced her hands down to her sides in a suitably regal pose. She didn’t need Romin’s scrutiny. Not today of all days.

moonlightcombustion  asked:

Hey could you please do a type contrast between ENFP and ISFP because I'm trying to figure out which I am. I think I might be ISFP because I'm pretty sure I have inferior Te because I'm quite impulsive and I don't usually think things through and I used to like to have things in control and to behave according to rules. I've always typed myself as ENFP before though or very initially I also thought I was INXP. I looked on ur type contrast page and couldn't see this one so I thought I'd ask!

Someone out there is laughing at me. My phone literally hit me with this ask 35 seconds after The Scarlet Pimpernel ended and I watched it with an ISFP.

Why does that matter, you might ask? Well, Percy is an ENFP and Marguerite is an ISFP. Go watch it. It’s worth it, I promise. It stars Anthony Andrews and Jane Seymour. The plot is about a British aristocrat (ENFP) who goes under the alias of “The Scarlet Pimpernel” to rescue people from the French Revolution and winds up falling in love with a French actress (ISFP), who is then manipulated by her ex-boyfriend (INFJ) into trying to find out the identity of the Pimpernel.

As a Ne-dom, Percy has a few excellent things going for him, and a few pitfalls.

One, he’s absolutely hilarious and can snark at the drop of the hat. He enjoys manifesting his feelings through barbs, insults, innuendos, and suchlike, often to express his contempt for the current state of French politics (”You should send your tailors to the guillotine!“ he quips, dissing French fashion; Chauvelin says, “We shall send our king instead, and exalt our tailors,” and Percy retorts with, “Alas, then tailors will rule the land and no one will make the clothes. So much for French fashion!”)

Two, he keeps the larger picture in focus at all times and manages to stay one step ahead of his adversary – this is Ne/Te, allowing him to innovate on the fly just enough to keep ahead of Chauvelin; he engages “plans” and easily sets them into motion, he delegates tasks to subordinates, and he argues rational reasons why they must remain a small group and incognito.

Three, he can revise his plans and abandon all former ones at the drop of a hat, which in the end saves his neck because he had a few minutes to scheme.

Four, he is largely concerned with philosophical abstractions – even though he is using them for mockery much of the time, the real focus of his jabs is the sensory world (he’s pretending to be “the most idiotic fop” in England, for the greater good, because he self-identifies with the French aristocracy - Fi) – fussing about clothing, mocking French fashion, and over-exaggerating his feminine traits to throw people off (emphasis on low Si).

Being so laid back and trusting his ability to get himself out of messes has its disadvantages – Percy almost gets himself killed because he permits one of his League to disobey his orders – his strong sense of Fi (“I am not your boss, and you must do what you believe is right”) is almost his undoing, and his lower Te prevents him from stepping in to lay down the rules, which would have been for everyone’s greater good. His Ne is naive and idealistic – he underestimates how dangerous Chauvelin is due to personal dislike (Fi), and underestimates how dangerous individual situations can be. His Ne’s “we’ll wait and see what happens, and I can revise it later if need be” isn’t always in his favor.

His low Si is also a pain when it comes to believing a piece of information about the woman he loves. Percy has such a poor connection to his own sensory impressions that he cannot contrast and compare what he’s told about her actions with the woman he knows (stronger Si required) and thus believes the ideas he hears (Ne) and retreats into himself, emotionally – he tries to hide “his contempt” but cannot really manage it (Fi).

Since there are two introverted feelers at the heart of this story, there’s a huge presence of misunderstandings, lack of communication, the inability to be frank with one’s feelings as things happen, and the inevitable frustration that comes from each person pulling away from the other to process their feelings, when it might resolve everything if they just… talked.

If Percy is the idealist, Marguerite is the realist who sees more than Percy because she pays attention with Se and interprets with Ni. Early on, strangely drawn to him despite his foppish behavior, she asks him, “Are you an actor too, playing in some strange charade?” She knows he’s lying to her, and to society, but cannot put her finger on why; she senses the shift in him when he believes something about her that isn’t true and says he “wears THE MASK (his fake self) in private now, as well as public.” This is her Fi/Ni loop, sensing Percy is not being authentic to his true self in others’ presence and intuiting his reason why – he must be hiding something because he doesn’t trust me.

Her intuition isn’t quite strong enough to figure out that he’s the Pimpernel, until she sees a visual representation of the Pimpernel symbol and associates it with her husband (Se). She is willing to accept him as he is, though it frustrates her (Fi-dom, disinterested in changing another person; Percy expresses his open disapproval in a much more brutal tert-Te manner, intended to punish her for her perceived wrongdoing and in so doing, change her). She reacts to his coldness by pulling away. Marguerite is offended that he will say nothing in her defense when the accusations become public – society’s opinion matters to her less than that he doesn’t believe her, nor intend to forgive her; and instead of telling him it’s all a lie, she stops confiding in him altogether. Since she isn’t an extrovert, she’s far less confrontational and cutting than he is, when she’s upset (she never confronts him with aggression or demands answers for his strange behavior, but rather tries to appeal to his better Fi-nature).

She isn’t as good at innovating on the run as he is, because he’s an extrovert and has stronger Te, but her impression of who she is, who he is, and who Chauvelin is, is much more grounded and realistic than his (”You shouldn’t tease Chauvelin; he’s very important in the government” = he’s dangerous, Percy, and whatever game you are playing, you need to stay out of his way).

She aligned with the Revolution until it became something she disagreed with, and could no longer morally support, then her Fi slammed on the brakes and she ceased any involvement. She refuses to pretend to be anything she is not. Percy is more willing to compromise who he is, behind a facade; he puts aside his pride and loops out of his emotions as much as he can, in order to deal with what is in front of him (even as his marriage falls apart, Percy focuses on “getting the Dauphin out of France”).

So, in short:

Percy’s Ne is naive and idealistic and he relies on it a lot, reasoning he’ll deal with that problem when he gets there; he falls back on strong Te to get things done, but all the mistakes he makes are sensory-based (underestimating people and situations, making failed escape attempts, etc). His lack of a strong connection to a stable Fi (it’s under Ne’s influence) means he can dismiss his love for Margot, and show her nothing but contempt, disapproval, or a false side of his nature (Te and Ne).

Marguerite prefers to take things at face value (Se) unless something tugs at her subconscious awareness and informs her that this person is dishonest, hiding part of themselves, pulling away from her, or malicious in nature (Fi/Ni). SHE is the one who tells Percy that their romance is moving too fast (he responds, “My heart dictates the pace” – aw, such a romantic sap he is), and because personal integrity is so important to her, it pains her a great deal that he is being inauthentic to himself and to others (Fi) until she understands why.

It was your fault, really. You should have thought things through before, but you were notoriously impulsive. And Newt had warned you about that too, saying it would get you hurt, but you were also notoriously unaware.

Newt had been helping to teach Credence how to remain calm and in control so as to keep his obscurus in check, and, being his assistant, you were there taking notes for him, taking down what seemed to work or not, what helped or didn’t, that kind of thing. But you and Credence had grown relatively close over the last few months, as you both occupied Newt’s case most of the time, and vicinity (and determination on your part) brought you together. This comfort and closeness, however, is why you didn’t think and went to celebrate with Credence after Newt had set off a loud noise (from a distance) and had managed to keep himself from becoming frightened or feeling threatened enough to lose control. He remained standing still, fists clenched at his sides and eyes squinted shut but with no black smoke escaping him, and you had leaped toward him and hollered in victory.

What you had been dumb about was that the victory took a lot of focus for Credence—all of his energy was nearly spent on not exploding, quite literally, at the sound, so your celebration was short lived. It wasn’t quite a full explosion, to be fair, but it was enough. Credence’s eyes snapped open and toward you, shocking white taking over their usual warm brown, and black tendrils curled quickly from his back and shot toward you with a vengeance. You barely had time to swallow your fear before it was too late.

It didn’t really…hurt so much as it shocked. And it really only lasted a second, maybe five. One tendril had slapped your waist quickly, drawing a thin line of blood, but that’s all it had felt like—a slap. And just as quickly as it had come, the obscurus retreated quickly into Credence, whose eyes had returned to a very shocked and upset warm brown. You hadn’t really reacted yet, just touched a tentative hand to the rip in your clothes and against the cut, hissing as you did so.

You were still mostly just curiously looking down at where your fingers touched the cut when Newt shouted he was going for healing potions and Credence all but ran to your side. Tears were quickly filling his eyes, and you could see him fighting them back. You smiled softly at him, trying to show him you were okay—and really you were. You thought. It didn’t hurt too badly apart from a tingly stinging, so you were sure it was fine. Probably. “I-I’m so s-sorry, I d-didn’t e-e-expect you to come over and I-I was shocked, and—O-Oh, a-and l-look what I’ve d-done to you.”

In his panic, Credence hadn’t really been worried about having his hands on you, so he had lifted your shirt just slightly to get a look at the cut and—Maybe it had felt like a slap and maybe only a thin line of blood had resulted, but there was a glowing silvery web extending from that line. You gasped slightly, paying keen attention to Credence’s thumb rubbing the damage done and feeling him crying more than seeing it. “Oh, Credence, it’s kind of pretty,” you said listlessly. Everything was just kind of starting to feel far away, and you couldn’t help but just kind of absently admire what a beautiful picture it would make, Credence’s scarred, pale hand brushing across a silver webbing scar around the thin red cut on a hip—your hip.

Credence did not miss the kind of absent focus in your eyes, how you kept shifting in and out of the moment you occupied. He worriedly fretted around you, not sure what to do or how to help—he had never really been shown how to comfort or help himself, let alone other people. But it was you, so he had to try. And Newt would be back soon, hopefully, though Credence couldn’t fight the sinking feeling that there would be nothing to take the scar away, since dark magic had caused it. He shook the ugly thought from his head as he grasped your arm and pulled you to sit on the ground.

You gazed up at him, still kind of thrown after seeing your hip and unable to ground yourself, and watched him move to squat gently in front of you. You followed his movements loosely while he observed you like a hawk. Credence’s hands hovered above your forearms hesitantly before resting there, squeezing gently, hoping that touch would help bring you back down, since that is what had helped him the few times he had been allowed such contact, and it seemingly worked slightly, your eyes focusing just a bit on his hands on your arms. “I feel weird, Credence,” you felt yourself say more than you really consciously spoke.

Credence’s eyebrows drew together in concern, trying to think of how to get you back to him so you could make more sense and help him figure out what was best for you. “I-I’m so—so sorry, Y/N. I-Is it the c—is it the cut?”

You looked loosely up from his hands to his face, not really focusing. “No, I don’t think so. Just my head.” Your voice felt so far away…

It clicked for Credence then, that tell-tale faraway look and inability to focus combined with the events—you were panicking. He gained some confidence, knowing what to do now. “Y/N, everything is okay. It was a cut. I’m so sorry that it happened, but it is over. I will never hurt you again. I’m so sorry, Y/N.” He had to push away his own remorse and tears in favor of grounding you. He kept talking. “Everything is over, Y/N. You’re okay.”

The repetitive words and the scratchy rasp of his voice brought you down slightly, enough that you could look directly into Credence’s eyes, and if his voice hadn’t grounded you completely, his eyes certainly did, the depth and concern in the brown of them. You snapped back, gasping a little as you realized exactly what had happened with clarity. “O-Oh. Oh. I’m so sorry, Credence. I didn’t mean to space out on you like that, or to startle you before; I just—I guess I just lost it for a minute.”

Credence didn’t think before crushing into you, winding his arms under yours and drawing you neatly against him, exhaling a sharp, nervous breath as your arms moved to wrap around his shoulders securely. “I’m s-so sorry, Y/N. I should be p-protecting you, not h-hurting you. I’m so s-sorry, Y/N, I—”

You squeezed him tightly to calm him down some. “It’s okay, Credence! Honestly, I should have known better than to startle you like I did, so it’s mostly my bad. And it really doesn’t hurt. I think it just shocked me, is all. We’re okay.”

The last sentence did him in because losing you was what he was most worried about. Credence squeezed you so tightly you thought you’d break, but you definitely didn’t tell him that. “I-I promise to never h-hurt you again. I’ll p-protect you from now on. I promise.”

His voice was a breathless whisper spoken with determination into your neck as he nosed you there. You said the words that meant most to him: “Of course, Credence. I trust you. I believe you.”

You sat there on the ground, hugging tightly, neither letting go until Newt coughed sheepishly, extending the healing potions when the two of you sprang apart.

Hey just quick question, which of th boys would be dominant and/or submissive both sexual and just normally?

I gotchu

mature content ahead lil bitches

Tim— he’s more dominant than submissive in bed but in relationships he really lets you do your own thing, unless he has reason to intervene (he’s very chill, everything with him is very equal and balanced).

Curly— he’s very dominant in bed but it turns him on if you try to take control. In relationships, he’s dominant in the way that he’s going to do whatever he feels, but submissive in the way that it’s not hard to push him around/get him to do what you want.

Pony— he’s submissive in bed because he always wants to make sure that you’re enjoying yourself. He’s not just focused on what he’d like. In relationships, he leans more towards dominant just because he likes things done right/the way he likes because he is a bit of a perfectionist.

Bob— he’s VERY dominant in bed VERY VERY. In relationships, yeah, he’s just very dominant. He’ll only be submissive if there’s a situation you understand and can handle better than him.

Darry— he can be very dominant in bed but also very submissive. It really depends on his mood, but overall I’d say he’s submissive. When he’s dominant during sex it’s caused by something or just bc he decided to be that time. Like Tim, his relationships are more balanced. He leans a little submissive, though.

Sodapop— he’s dominant in bed due to his confidence and cockiness, but like Curly, it really turns him on when a girl takes control. He’s very submissive in relationships if you can control his impulsiveness (sometimes he acts before you can really have control over him).

Randy— his level of dominance/submissiveness during sex depends on the situation. I would say more dominant, but in the way that he’s “leading” it versus kind of forcing you to do the things he wants (obviously not actually “forcing”), like he’s just kinda initiating whatever action you guys are gonna do.

Dally— obviously he’s very dominant, but I wouldn’t say more so than Bob. In relationships he’s also very dominant (or so he likes to think).

Steve— he’s dominant any time you have sex. But, he’s always asking for blowjobs and loves it when you ride him, so I mean… In relationships, he’s pretty dominant but in some situations, he has no choice but to be submissive (he hates it, too).

Johnny— he’s dominant the entire time during sex, automatically. But of course, if you wanna take over, he doesn’t care & he actually likes it. He’s pretty submissive in relationships bc he’s not a controlling person, he lets you do you bc that’s how people learn (am I right bro??).

Two-Bit— he’s not really dominant during sex unless he’s really horny and determined tbh. He’s also annoyingly submissive in relationships unless you reach a subject in which he’s very opinionated or stubborn on. He really likes his girl controlling things and handling stuff.


So Shinra talks in volume 13 about how Izaya’s heart is more fragile than anybody else’s and how he is actually more human than anybody else. By the anime appearance, I could say, “he is just a cold-hearted manipulative monster”, and that that is all there is to it. But, in volume 9, he actually punches a telephone pole to the point of it swelling up at thought of his “only ‘friend’ by normal human standards(Shinra)” being mad at him.

Which means it’s probably subconscious, what Izaya does and the way he lives.

Furthermore, Izaya actually isn’t a sadist. He just thoroughly enjoys being a part of both the good and bad actions of humanity.

By definition, he is an anti-hero and just happens to support all humans in their (with reason) decisions. My therapist says that Izaya could be diagnosed as having Schizoid Personality disorder after I explained his character.

The fact is, unlike the anime, the novel’ narrator(AKA the creater himself) confirms that Shinra is Izaya’s only friend and also the first one to see through him to his true nature(just as he saw through Celty, Aoba, Shizuo, and many others, (and Izaya even says himself, “Damn him” when Manami tells him that she had talked to Shinra instead of teasing her or averting the conversation as you would expect him to do)).

People say that there is nothing to like about Izaya, but the fact is… If you truly go to him as a friend with no other alternative manipulative motives, and you accept him, not to change him, you’ll be surprised by the length he’ll actually go. Two quotes about Izaya that are proven to be a fact in the novels are by Shinra and Kadota.

Here’s to the self indulgent crossover that I ended up putting way to much effort into. But I love Voltron and I adore the Green Lantern lore and universe and I ended up putting some serious thought into that.
So just… let me explain: 

Green Lantern (Willpower): Pidge 
The Green ring is often regarded as “willpower”, but I also interpret it as “bravery”. I think this speaks a lot to Pigde. Pidge is highly goal oriented and motivated. And in order get her goal she is willing to overcome a lot of things, a lot of dangerous, scary things. Her will and bravery are both shining strong. 
+Green Lanterns are believed to be the ‘neutral’ color. They don’t lean towards good or bad. And I think it’s a nice touch for her. 

Sinestro Corps (Fear): Shiro 
So here’s the thing- Shiro might not look like the kind of person who would be motivated by instilling fear, but he might’ve been that kind of person during his time as Champion. He is also highly motivated by his own fear: of the Galra empire, of Zarkon, of getting captured again and even from himself. So while I think it’s not the only choice that could work for him (green could work as well) I found it fitting. 

Blue Lantern (Hope): Lance
I always see Lance as the one who can hold everyone together. He might get sad, sure, but he will also always be the one to try and cheer everyone up by doing something stupid. Other then that, he is also pretty hopeful for himself. Sure he’s not the best at anything but he tries, believing he can be a better pilot, or win over a girl. I find it endearing, and very fitting of the blue ring. 

Red Lantern (Rage): Keith
So it’s pretty clear, especially in the last two episodes, that Keith is highly impulsive- which fit the red ring. There’s also enough of a reason to believe at least some of his actions are controlled by anger. While Shiro seems to channel his relation to the Galra through fear, Keith seems to channel it through anger. 
Also Red Lantern have this thing where the ring replaces their blood with liquid fire so I mean yeah we also have that.

Indigo Tribe (Compassion): Hunk 
Honestly, I feel like this one is self explanatory. Hunk IS compassion. He fights because he cares, not only for the people close to him, but for everyone. Still not convinced? Here’s the translation of the first lines in the indigo oath: “In sorrowful day, in misfortunate night,We help those, who need our might”.
(Indigo Tribe members can also channel every other emotion. fun fact) 

Star Sapphires (Love): Allura
It’s important to remember that the violet corps isn’t necessarily driven by romantic love- but by love and care for the living in general. Allura fits that a lot. She’ll fight, yes, but she’s a diplomat first, always wishing for peace with other aliens. And just like the Star Sapphires, she’ll kick your ass if you try to harm anyone she cares about. 
+At some point, Wonder Woman was also a Star Sapphire, so this is definitely the “strong kickass queens” corps. 

Agent Orange (Greed) Haggar: 
Agent Orange is a weird thing for me, and it was hard to pick a character. I ended up deciding on Haggar. Orange is not a corpse, but an individual who isn’t really keen on sharing his powers or his treasures. He will help you if you ask, but he always has his own selfish interests first. I thought she will probably be the best choice for that. 

Ended up writing so much gahhh. 
Oh well. This has been fun. 

P.S Zarkon would be a black lantern.
