yes im back at it again with the horrible intros masterposts!! (honestly im not even gonna try bc the title is self explanatory and im just gonna ruin this post if i go any further oh no i already did it rip)
((WARNING: THIS IS RLY LONG)
1. figure out why you hate this class. is it because you find it boring? you’re not doing so well/you don’t like the challenge? do you dislike the teacher? do you dislike your seat/the classroom/setting? whatever it is, figure it out and then work to eliminate it.
1.a. you find the class boring. this is inevitable because there’s always that one class ;; BUT! you can beat this! throw yourself into the class. find something about the class that you actually like and focus on that for the whole period. examples of this are: your seating (do u sit next to someone cool/nice? maybe a cute person that u rly wanna talk to? [uh don’t let this distract u tho!!]), the benefits of the class (if it’s an ap class, youre earning college credits!! might even help with your major; if its a language class, learning a language is SO important), the setting (is the room aesthetically pleasing? do you get to look out of the window at the blue sky when you’re done with your work?) or even the teacher (lmao i have more teacher friends than student friends). maybe it’s even the fact that it’s’ the first class in the morning, so if you do well in it, it’ll set the tone of your day? idk, just find something that’s not boring and focus on that all period. !!
1.b. you’re not doing well/it’s too hard for you. honey, this isn’t an excuse. even if you suck at a class, YOUR EDUCATION IS HELLA IMPORTANT. once again, throw yourself into the class! find people who are good at the subject and form study groups with them (or just ask ur own friends if ur too scared to talk to new people). TALK TO YOUR TEACHER. dont just sit there crying because you dont know how to solve that equation! ask for help! go on youtube, go on khanacademy, go on kuta, DO SOMETHING. even if you still continue to struggle, your teacher will appreciate the effort!
1.c. you dislike the teacher. this is probably one of the worst ones lol. why do you not like the teacher? is it because they never call on you? is it because you think they’re too hard on you/they grade things viciously/too much homework and tests? do they always seem to be after you? well, some of these might actually be your fault. many students think that the workload is more than it actually is, simply because they don’t plan and aren’t prepared. or, some teachers target students for being bullies or for talking in class. these are things you can change. however, if it’s something like your teacher never calling on you or coming at you for no reason, that’s something you and your teacher have to discuss. ask them (POLITELY) “i feel like i am targeted/ignored by you during class and it makes me uncomfortable. is there anything i can do to change this?” chances are, your teacher will like that you’ve taken initiative to not only fix your relationship, but ultimately do better in their class. BAM.
1.d. you dislike the setting/your seat. quick fix: if you don’t like where you sit, ask your teacher to move you (dont forget to give a valid reason!! this does not mean lie. i see u) however, if you dont like the actual room…there’s nothing u can do about this; sorry bub! MAYBE if you and your teacher get close, you can help them redecorate one day? this is unlikely but worth a shot.
1.e. if it’s really THAT bad, switch classes, my dude. i know lots of schools have the option to switch classes at a certain time.
2. work to solve whatever the reason is that you hate this class. (mentioned next to each cause above ^)
(i just realized that i didn’t need to number this because there were only two main bullet points)
ok this is literally the worst masterpost ever but !!!!
*minding their own business making posts on a ship*
Um...could you explain to me how?
LOOK AT THEIR AGE ON THE WIKI
..uh...its just three years and their both minors...but alright I guess I'll fix it and have them aged up in my AU-
NOPE DAS NOT CANON YOU'RE NOT ALLOWED
...I know...its an AU...the whole ship isn't cannon...
THEN DROP DA SHIP
...Just because its not cannon to make an AU? So I can't ship it cause its not a canon ship? Or just because you don't like the ship?
If you dont like it maybe check out stuff you do like? And not waste time being hateful towards a fictional ship? Its uh...not really affecting canon since you care about that so much...and it's not actually affecting you.
Read the first here! ~http://ofnifflersandkings.tumblr.com/post/158907528077/lovely-lovely-man
You awoke that morning to a beautiful spring day, the sun peaked through soft clouds as they rolled lazily in the sky of gentle blue. You could see the wind shake the leaves of the trees and the golden ends of the barley field next to your home.
“The flowers look wonderful this spring, Miss Fontaine,” You complimented the elderly florist as you examined her daffodils. “And what a lovely shade of yellow.”
“Thank you, dear.” She beamed proudly as you took two and placed them in your basket.
“And how are the lilies?” You asked as she reached under the counter for some shears to cut the stems of her fresh roses.
“Oh just fine, though I still think they’ll need a week or two to fully bloom,” Miss Fontaine saw the minor look of disappointment in your face before laughing softly. “You’ll be the first to hear when they’re ready.”
You smiled at her generosity. “Thank you, have you tried-”
Your words were caught off as the front door of the florist shop opened, a little bell chiming as it did. You whirled around to find a completely out of breath Lefou with his hands on his knees as he huffed the breath back into his lungs.
“Lefou? Are you alright?” You asked as you gingerly placed your hand on his shoulder.
He stood up straight and tall, turning to you as he heaved one final sigh. “Gaston…Gaston is looking for you.”
“Is he drunk again already?” You asked with a clear and sharp agitation to your voice before you placed your flower basket on the counter. “For goodness sake Lefou, it’s barely the afternoon?”
Lefou laughed but it was cut short by a cough as his lungs couldn’t take the strain. “No not-hing like that, I assure, Is there somewhere I can sit?” He asked while simultaneously falling backwords onto the bench by the window, though you still made sure he didn’t harm himself on the way down.
Patiently, you waited for the poor man to catch his breath before he spoke again. “But, Gaston still wishes to speak with you,” He said clearly. “Said it’s urgent.”
You sighed before setting your basket in front of Miss Fontaine. “Would you mind if I left these here? I shouldn’t be too long.”
The old woman giggled and waved her hand. “Don’t you worry about a thing dear.” She then gave you a mischievous wink which only left you perplexed.
Your eyes found there way back to Lefou who, regardless of his disposition only moments ago, was practically beaming.
“Is there something I’m missing?” You asked, turning your gaze between the two of them.
They both shook their heads and Miss Fontaine ushered you both out of the shop. “Everything will still be here when you return, don’t hurry.” She said with that girlish giggle again.
“Will you come?” Lefou asked as he placed his hat back upon his head.
“I dont really have a choice it seems,” You said as you brushed out the skirts of your dress and fixed your hair. “Lead the way.”
You and Lefou had become dear friends in the time you had known each other, so throughout the walk you made simple small talk about how nice the weather was or how lovely Villeneuve looked during Springtime.
Just as you rounded the corner to Gaston’s home, you grabbed Lefou’s arm to pull him back. “Be honest, what aren’t you telling me.”
Lefou laughed awkwardly and shrugged. “I have no idea what you mean!” He then saw the unwavering look upon your face and he sighed in defeat. “It isn’t my place to tell you, I made a promise.”
You smiled at him regardless. “I understand, thank you for escorting me here.”
He tipped his hat. “Good luck, Miss (Y/n).”
Lefou quickly made his exit before you could question him on his words, and with that you walked up to the door and raised on the brass knocker before dropping it against the dark wooden door.
Almost instantly it swung open and you were pulled into two very strong arms that whirled you around once you were inside.
“(Y/n)! It’s a lovely day isn’t?” Gaston said in a rather uncharacteristically cheerful voice, and when he set you back on the ground you looked up to his bright smile.
“You’ve certainly sobered up, last night you could barely keep your eyes focused on the same place.” You teased him as you closed the door behind you.
“Well of course I did, I had you taking care of me didn’t I?” He asked you as he lead further into his home setting you on the sofa before he held out his hands. “Here, close your eyes.”
You did as told, holding your hands over your eyes so you couldn’t see him.
“One moment…,” Gaston said and you heard retreating footsteps and a few rustling noises before you heard him return in front of you. “Okay, you can open them.”
You opened your eyes to see a full bouquet of perfectly bloomed white lilies held in his hand.
“Oh my.” You said with a broad smile on your face as you took thek from him. “There absolutely wonderful, where did you get them? Miss Fontaine said her lillies weren’t bloomed yet.”
Gaston pulled one of his chair from the dining table so he could sit with you. “I bought them from her and asked her if she’s keep it a secret, I knew they were your favorite.”
You gently set them down in your lap as you noticed the yellow ribbon holding the stems together. “Thank you, Gaston. It was very kind of you to think of me.
Gaston smiled, “Of course, the lilies aren’t the real reason why I asked to see you.” He said, though his voice was little more quiet and he had moved closer to you.
You looked up from the flowers to meet his eyes with a smile before looking back down at them. “Go on.”
“Well in light of our conversation from last night, there was a question I’d wanted to ask since you left.” Gaston took both of your hands in his and your gazes met each other and you nodded for him to continue. “I’d like to ask you if you’d like to marry me?”
You were completely taken back by the question it seemed to have knocked the air out of you. You’d never think the random conversations you two had after a night were he particularly had too much ale or wine would ever lead to this scenario.
Gaston saw the expression on your face and he couldn’t hold back a chuckle. “I understand if this a bit too foward, considering we’ve never formally courted one another,” He reached into his coat pocket and pulled out a small red box, placing it in your hands. “And I have every intention of properly courting you and asking for your family’s good graces, but I want you to hold on to this until that happens.”
You took the box in both of your hands, staring at with wide eyes before they met his again. “I don’t…”
“You may open it if you’d like. I promise all of the evil in the world won’t sprout from the top the moment you lift the lid.” He said, making you both laugh and easing the tension.
Curiosity got the better of you and slowly you opened this box, smiling whenever you saw the ring sitting in the pool of dark velvet. It was a similar shape and style the engagement your mother always wore, and one you always admired.
“I spoke to your brother whenever chosing it.” Gaston said as he looked down at it with you. “You don’t need to accept or reject me anytime soon, I’m more than willing to wait.”
His hands enclosed around yours and he closed the box. “I shall wait regardless of your answer.”
You opened your mouth before closing it and shaking your head at how silly you were being. “I think…,” You said looking up at him with a genuine smile. “Should the time come, I would like to marry you,” You said, watching the light encase in his eyes and his smile grow. “Very much so.”
Gaston leaned foward, careful not to crush your flowers, and kissed your forehead tenderly. “Then that is very good news indeed.”
honestly, i never really see any appreciation posts for people who are quoiromantic or quoisexual so im just putting this out there
-aren’t sure if you experience romantic or sexual attraction
-dont understand either attraction as a concept or feeling
-cant define these attractions and are therefore unsure if you feel them
-have a hard time distinguishing attractions from one another
-cant find a better term to describe yourself
-identify as gray-aro or gray-ace and quoiromantic or quoisexual
-or are just plain unsure of your romantic or sexual attraction
you aren’t broken and are in no need of fixing, my friend. you are wonderful and your sexuality and romantic attraction is valid no matter what anyone else says. and if youre unsure of your romantic or sexual attractions, just remember that feelings come first, labels second. c:
you said you have a list of fics you reread, would you mind sharing it? No worrys if you dont want to
I don’t mind at all. It’s kind of long and most of these are pretty old because I haven’t updated my list in awhile (also why a lot of them are FFN links) I also don’t know everyone’s tumblr, sorry, but if anyone knows tell me and I will fix the tag
My list of fics that I go back to time and time again:
Recently, I’ve been trying out a more different style to the one I have right now. It’s probably because I want to experiment with a coloring style that’s more like you’re painting. Though most times I just sketch out things out in my sketchpad, which even then is rather rare these days - gotta listen to the teacher after all.
I’m glad I got a chance to at least try out the style digitally. Proportioning is rather difficult, and I’m still practicing this style.
And I got back into D-Gray Man and wow am I glad because I found another artist I admire and their art style is beautiful <3</p>
But anyways, still experimenting with this style, I want to change the eyes a little to something a little more semi-realistic. Or change the nose but I’m still pretty new to this style. And still not completely back! Though somewhere in December I’ll have more free time ^^/
Those are only a few stories. what about all the other species in captivity? If zoos were just about conservation why have it like a theme park? why not just have a research facility? you knjow why? because they dont really care. they do the bare minimum so they can say those same lines about the SSP. You are nothing more than a piece in the machine
Zoos arent just about the research. We also are here to educate the ignorant. To bring awareness to the problems of conservation.
And how would you propose we educate people? flyers on car windows? Lectures on college campuses? How many people you think will be intrigued by that? Its been proven that people learn more and want to keep learning when they are enjoying what they are learning. Education through Entertainment
Oh and what about the animals that need help but no one cares about?all the small racer snakes, dart frogs or even the bali mynah? You think you could get enough people to care enough for just them alone? A zoos collection is diverse to encourage people to come out. People might come to see one animal and end up learning about 20 more the had no idea existed
And you’ve obviously never worked for a research unit otherwise you’d know how hard it is to get funding just to see how to handle the problem. Let alone fund a 10+year venture to fix the problem? But maybe if we can entertain while we educate people would be willing to donate to help us educate others. Thus funding our research in the process.
Now I have said countless times i dont disagree with the anticap movement. Because i feel we are all trying to do whats best for the animals. BUT You all dont seem to understand, or want to understand how the world works. You say things like “Why dont we just let them go and leave them alone.” I wish we could just let them go and thats that. But Its not the zoo people who are killing endangered animals, destroying habitats. We arent the ones you should be fighting.
Again. If you can give me a better FEASIBLE plan to fund a conservation program with no true end date. By all means let me know and i’ll quit and come work for you. But until then I’ve got animals to love and care for
hey! follower and I am also. destroyed from this new ep but I figured u might know uhhhhh is this the first we're hearing about "lup"? or have we heard of this character before
weve heard abt her a few times!!
1) when angus made taako macarons and taako had to cast presdididgidtsion on them to fix them his wand went Freaky and shot flame into the wall to spell out her name (L U P)
2) when thb told barry they didnt trust him he started crying and was like “LUP.. WHATS THE POINT LUP THEY DONT EVEN TRUST ME”
3) uhh god theres probably more that i dont remember 100% for now. point is shes been an Unknown Feature for a while and ive loved her just as long
4) EDIT: WHEN BARRY SAW TAAKOS WAND FOR THE 1ST TIME HIS VOICE WENT ALL TRYING-NOT-TO-CRY AND WAS LIKE “lup? you ….you found her”
based on where he got the umbrastaff and where griffin described her voice coming from (a few hundred feet away in a cave nearby barrys), its basically common knowledge that the skeleton with the red robe from the end of the gerblin arc was lup (or.. her body. at least)
im ALSO pretty certain that the umbrastaff trying to shoot kravitz at the end of their date (when he started mentioning a lich nearby) was lup trying to protect barry
things to do before giving up on a rp ( calling it cliquey etc. ) ;
i’ve seen so many people give up on rps and coming for them for being cliquey that i thought i’d make out a list for those of u who need help. im not trynna say rps cant be cliquey bc yes they damn well can, but maybe before running off to rpts do ur job to ensure u did everything possible to make ur experience better in a rp !
step one ; this is rather easy. once u first arrive to a rp whats the first thing everyone does ? plotting ! make urself a handy dandy plot wanted list & ask around for plots. once u and the other player decide what sort of plot ure going for then share backstories/ info. i rec u do this w as many members as possible. past connections are always fun to play out.
step two; now lets say u prefer chem bc i mean who doesnt ? plotting doesnt necessarily mean ure going to shove two charas together. most times when i plot friendships they dont even end up being friends.. so if u dont want to plot dont worry ! do ur best to answer every tweet. i mean it, every single tweet. that’ll give u many different opportunies for ur chara to bond w others.
step three; once youre done replying to ever tweet wht else can ya do ? dms ! dms are a great way for ur chara to grow closer w others. maybe plan for them to hang out ? thats where u ooc msg the mun asking to para or action. i promise u that most of the time the muns will absolutely want to. just bc we do twitter rp it dont mean we dont love to para. i do it all the time.
step four; be inclusive yourself ! if u rarely ever rt anyone or reply to anyone chances are u wont have many plots for ur chara. in a way, in twitter rp u get what u give. a little kindness goes a long way.
step five; dont ever feel youre bothering anyone !i cant even tell y’all how many of my friends have been too shy to talk to me bc they felt they were a bother. always msg everyone ! i promise u everyone loves to be approached bc it takes the anxiety of having to msg u ourselves. try to bond w the muns urself. i feel like when ure friendly ooc it is more likely a group will stay together.
step six ; if none of these little tips work for u then clearly something fishy is going in the rp itself aka time to call them out for being cliquey. dont forget to approach the admins. us admins love to fix problems for our members bc it shows us u trust us and i promise u we’d rather u tell us than a rpt who cant do anything for u.
anyway ! i hope these were helpful. you don’t have to agree w me, but i’m tired of people complaining about cliqueyness when they don’t try themselves. i realize sometimes approaching people can be nerve wrecking but i promise u it is never a bother. that’s what we’re here for afterall !
I read this fix about Dan and Phil where thief mother and father were married but they weren't related and Phil picks Dan up from school and takes them to their own house and Phil tells Dan that their parents are divorcing each other. Phil always acts tired of Dan but he throws a party and is worried about him the whole time. Dan falls in the pool and phil saves him then they have the sexy time. I dont know the name but I wanted to know if you did.
Party for Good Good Boys Only - Dan and Phil are reluctant stepbrothers soon to be strangers. When Dan’s father decided to marry Phil’s mother, no one could have predicted the marriage ending in flames only a few weeks later. The two boys who avoided each other at all costs during the marriage are brought together one last time before they part ways forever. Phil hates Dan. Dan can’t stand Phil. But what happens when a house party goes terribly wrong and they end up needing each other more than their parents ever did?
yo so about this some people are invested into getting a hk/clown commission and is amazing for me seeing people interested so much .D
so 2 things
1- my cat , the whole reason these commisions are a thing is holding fine ,, she seems in no pain , she just drool constanly and have a bad smell , a free mobile vet that do free check up ( only check ups ) told us it may be a blister that is getting to big but is no painful or is food that got stuck between teeths and is getting rotten , she does need to see the a proper vet to get treatment but is not as dangerous as we tought ( talk about relieve )
2. since my exams are getting closer, and i really need to pass them , i dont have much time to draw properly other than do doodles and i want to do proper commisions than just taking bad photos in my phone , for than i need my scanner that my brother will fix this month , for than and my exams and reason 1- HONKLING COMMISIONS WILL START IN DECEMBER WE´RE I WILL HAVE TIME AND MY SCANNER
so until december honklings will still be free but will be only doodles and phone photos will also not incude the clown forms
SO YEE HK ARE FREE UNTIL DECEMBER , FROM THERE ON THEY WILL BE COMMISSIONS WERE YOU ALSO CAN GET A CLOWNSONA BASED ON YOUR HK FOR A SMALL PRICE IF YOU WANT :D
so thanks so much for the attention people and reblog this plz so other people is aware !
Diabolik Lovers ~Haunted Dark Bridal~ Subaru Sakamaki Ecstasy 05 Translation
(TL//I was in a slight rush getting this up so there might be a bit of error where the selection is, I’ll probably edit it out when I have the time. I had a few problems with a few phrases in this scenario so the translations there are pretty rough. Please don’t put this translation anywhere outside of tumblr- link back to this post only. I don’t mind this being translated into other languages as long as you link back to my blog and ask for permission beforehand.\\)
Hi! Im pretty sure you have this in your faq page but I can't access it from my phone :/ i was just wondering if you have problem with people reposting your art with full credit? Or you dont want it being reposted at all? (I mean in places like instagram). Sorry if it's already kn your faq😬 also everything you do is beautiful!
Nevermind that other ask about reposting, I know the answer now! I just
want to say that your Remus is the softest thing I have ever seen and
literally makes my heart feel warm and fuzzy every time I see him <3
The links in the description are always breaking, ugh :/ I fixed them yesterday (you can access my FAQ from your phone now :)) but it was late and I was too tired to answer your question. But I think I should answer anyway.
If you post one or two of my drawings with full credit, asking me first and sending me the link to your page, then I’d most likely say go ahead. But when I get anonymous messages asking me for permission, or when the person wants to post more of my drawings, or doesn’t give a ship when I ask them for the link to their instagram, then I’ll say no. Most people who post my art on instagram don’t give credit, they crop and edit my works, they tag the things I draw as something completely different which drives me crazy. People don’t read with understanding. When someone tells them I don’t like my art to be reposted they claim I’m ok with it as long as they give me credit. Well, I’m not ok with this. Read my faq again. It’s annoying when every second or third picture on someone’s instagram is my art and the person has 40k followers, and I know about it only because someone else told me. It might look like I make a fuss but if you create something you want to have some control over it. I like to know how and where my art is used, I want to feel I’m the author of what I created. It’s not only that my art is posted somewhere else. That I can’t see the feedback, that I can’t interact with people who ask questions abut my art. Sometimes people take my drawings and sell them without my permission. That’s why I post my drawings in lower resolution now. That’s why I add more watermarks, I think that’s why I draw less HP too. Because my art were everywhere and I started to lose control.
Anyway, I’m glad you messaged me :) And I’m super happy you like my art and that you feel like that seeing my Remuses, thank you for the compliments ^^ Hope you have a great day!
Any tips on how to deal with jealousy? Being on both ends; being the jealous one AND dealing with someone who’s jealous.
i think being with someone who is jealous is just a bad situation. i would deal with it by ending the relationship
and being jealous of other people, for me, is resolved by kind of just focusing on me. like, i am who i am. there are things about me that i can’t change. so i accept that. and then what needs to be changed, i take time to do it. but i don’t really see other people and wish i was them. i try to just be the best version of myself. i focus a lot on fixing me, changing me, working on me. and because i’m busy doing that, i dont’ have time to compare myself to others
