but i found them really developed

zaftigwriter  asked:

Do you ever ride a bike? How frequently or why not? Tell us all about you and cycling, please. :-)

I do not. I guess probably because I don’t find it enjoyable recreationally (I don’t really find any exercise enjoyable aside from team sports, to be fair), nor do I have any interest in using it as a mode of transportation.

Having lived in Boston for more than a decade—and more specifically, in Cambridge and Somerville—I must admit I’ve developed sort of a distaste for bikers. That seems to be a common attitude among drivers in this area. I’ve found that many of them (but not all of them) expect to be treated like cars, but don’t want to abide by traffic laws (i.e. they run red lights or ride the wrong way down one-way streets). I’ve been nabbed by a biker at least once or twice while walking, and have had near-collisions with them while driving. I realize they’re doing something noble by choosing an environmentally friendly mode of transportation and I don’t fault all of them for the actions of some of them, but they make me nervous as both a driver and a walker.

Embarrassing old art under the cut, but I’m really proud of my rapid progress over the last two years! I’m so happy that I started to watch Tenkai Knights and draw fanart to this wonderful show and I’m grateful because I learned and developed so many techniques over the years how to work more efficently on my art. I for example found an technique for myself with which I comfortably do my outlines and easily add more impact to them. (Not pictured on any of these unfortunately! But my latter 2016 works show it!) I’ve also developed a technique for myself how to colour mechs without accidently killing SAI with layers. (This happened way too often for my liking orz I even managed to hit layer limit on SAI many times…)

So yeah, without further ado my own art evolution:

Critics who treat adult as a term of approval, instead of as a merely descriptive term, cannot be adult themselves. To be concerned about being grown up, to admire the grown up because it is grown up, to blush at the suspicion of being childish; these things are the marks of childhood and adolescence. And in childhood and adolescence they are, in moderation, healthy symptoms. Young things ought to want to grow. But to carry on into middle life or even into early manhood this concern about being adult is a mark of really arrested development. When I was ten, I read fairy tales in secret and would have been ashamed if I had been found doing so. Now that I am fifty I read them openly. When I became a man I put away childish things, including the fear of childishness and the desire to be very grown up.

C.S. Lewis, “On Three Ways of Writing for Children,” 1952

(via the comments section of TNR’s excellent response to The Slate Article That Shall Not Be Linked To.)

Holy shit I found it, it wasn’t just a rumour. Armin and Eren will end up in opposition, and Mikasa too

“In the upcoming developments, the three of them and their way of thinking will go in different directions. As a result, they will end up in opposition.”

He says really clearly that he’s already got it planned. He’s revealing the plot in a fucking interview, what

He’s even implying that it’s happening pretty soon. He’s seriously going to have Armin inherit Bertholdt’s memories, isn’t he

OTH meme [1/1] place → Rivercourt

It’s been host to authors, NBA players, local legends, and fashion designers. Notable musicians have played here both concerts and games of “horse.” And on gentle summer nights as the staccato rhythms of worn leather on fading asphalt mixes with the white noise of the distant nightlife across the Cape Fear, kids have grown up here. I should know. I was one of them. Now development threatens to erase this place. Commerce is commerce. That’s not really the point, is it? The truth is, a town’s identity is made up of places like this one. And once they’re gone, they’re gone. […] A lot of lost kids found their way to something better in this park. In a confusing world, at a confusing time in their lives, they found something that made sense here, and they became better people because of it. Surely that is worth preserving.

How to read scientific papers part 1

So, my major challenge when I first went into researh were the research papers I had to read. I used to just read them, without understanding a word of what was said there (seriously), so it was just really tedious to me, not productive at all and I wasn’t learning anything or making the most of my time in the lab since I wasn’t able to apply new concepts properly. But as time passed and I got more experienced, I found and developed a method that works pretty well for me, it helps me analyze and understand so I can later apply what I learned in my own research and time in the lab. It does take more time that just skimming through it, but it’s so worthy, trust me. But note that this may not work for everyone, it’s just a method I developed by experience (and honestly it’s pretty simple and typical) and also learning from others, which happened to be very effective to me. 

WHAY YOU WILL NEED

  • 2 highlighters: one for findings in the research you are reading, one for general and “universal” concepts mentioned. 
  • Your article
  • A notebook (try to have one exclusive for the research project you’re doing, if that’s the case, with a section for articles read that can be helpful)
  1. The first thing you’ll do is write the title in the notebook, because this will help understand the whole article. The title ususally has the ability to summarize everything in a sentence: it’s basically the hypothesis and procedure in one. 
  2. Second, we’ll work a little with the abstract. It’s a really small summary of everything but it contains the most common abreviations used throughout, so, we’ll extract and write them down to have them in handy while we read.

3. Usually the abstract has it too, the hypothesis, we have to find what was done or what was tried to prove with this research. 

4. Now, we analyze the introduction, tough simple and general, it can help us understand concepts better so we can later apply them. I like to make maps, charts and diagrams with the info so I can make sure I’m processing it correctly, and if I have any doubts I’ll just look it up! 

HIGHLIGHTING

If important information is regarding the research itself, like a result or something like that, I’ll highlight it with one color

If and important concept is mentioned, but it’s a universal or general concept, I’ll highlight it using another colorm because it might be useful later, (like what are anthocyanins, or the explanation of a procedure commonly used) 


It is indeed and extensive post, so I’ll write the rest later. 

Completely new to this studyblr community, I would like to say that @hexaneandheels has been my principal motivation to make this blog! I love how her tips are always useful and practical, that she always creates great and original content and I admire so much that hardworking and productive personality of hers, besides she’s so beautiful! 

And I won’t freeze you out
Like I have been
I won’t freeze you out
My heart is melting

THIS SONG by Sia describes perfectly Sasuke’s long path to let Sakura in. From coldness to a “smile that he never shows anyone but Sakura”. I decided to draw a few important moments between them. Moments when they both meet after some time, when Sasuke confronts that “new”, more mature, more powerful, more beautiful Sakura. Because she’s better every time they meet. 

Anyway, here’s first scene. Genin’s time. The beginning. Let’s just say this is the moment when Sasuke found out that Sakura seems strange and then he decides to comfort her. I’ll draw next scene soon. (Really inspired by this freakin songggggg)

And guyssssss, don’t you dare forget this ship. It has the most beautiful story, huge development AND IT’S CANON, U KNOW



I just go to bed…

I believe I can fly
My G Watch R lets me talk to replyI wear my scarf like it’s a big bow-tie
These styling’ bands help me accessorizeI believe I can soar
This watch will help me do cool things galoreI believe I can fly
My heart rate monitor is really high
Powered by LG so I’ll never die.Hey if I just spread my wings
I can fly!

They finally let me go home after two weeks in the infirmary. My arm was still in pretty bad shape, but after a week of twice daily cleanings with Denise, she was finally able to stich it up properly. I had to keep my arm in a sling, but being free from the confines of that small room in the infirmary is worth any inconvenience. I had a lot of visitors in the weeks that I was there. Michonne and Judith were almost there as much as Carl. I was really developing a relationship with them both and I almost consider myself a baby expert as opposed to how I was the first night I held Judith.

Carl is basically connected to my hip right now, but I don’t blame him. If he was the one hurt, I’d be the same. Honestly, his protective nature is really hot. His hands are always on me whether it’s on the small of my back or across my shoulders. It makes me feel safe in this messed up world.

Rick, on the other hand, has been watching us from afar. I see him watch us while we play with Judith and while we’re on the porch talking. I don’t have the heart to tell Carl that I think his dad hates me. I know how much he looks up to him. It’s my first day back and I am alone in the house with Carl and Judith.

I was in Judith’s room singing silly songs and using her new blocks that Michonne brought back from a run when I heard the front door shut. Carl was in the shower so I know it wasn’t him. I set Judith in the play pen and walked out into the hall. There, I was face to face with Rick.

“Y/N. Can I speak with you?” His blue eyes looked harsh in the dim lighting of the house and I nodded slowly, following him into his bedroom. I stood close to the door so I could run out and find Carl if I needed to. He paced a few times before he turned to me with a hard look on his face. “Y/N, I know that my son has taken an interest in you.” He paused waiting for a response from me.

“And I him.” I answered without missing a beat. He nodded disappointingly.

“I love my son and I don’t want him to put himself in danger because of some crush he has on a girl. It almost killed him when you were hurt and I don’t want that for him. I want you to go and live with Carol and I don’t want you around here anymore. If you disobey these rules, I will exile you from Alexandria.” His face was cold and I was at a loss for words. Before I could even muster a plea to stay, Carl burst into the room, half naked, fresh out of the shower.

“Y/N, you’re not going anywhere.” Carl growled, before turning to face his father.

“Carl listen-” Rick started, but Carl didn’t let him finish.

“No! You listen! I know you’re bitter about what happened between you and mom, but I will not shy away from love because I could possibly get hurt. I will not end up cold and unforgiving like you. Y/N and I have something that could grow into the kind of love that could beat this world. Mom told me I could beat this world and I truly think that Y/N is the key for me. So you will stay away from her and trust that I know what is best for me.” I stood behind Carl in shock. Did he say love? Does he really feel that strongly for me? I could see that Rick didn’t know what to say either. No one noticed that Michonne was standing in the doorway behind me, with Judith in her arms. Carl finally made the first move, grabbing my hand and taking me down the hall to his room and slamming the door behind us. The last thing I heard was Michonne’s voice yelling at Rick.

Carl’s face was red and he looked like he could kill a hundred walkers by himself right now.

“I can’t fucking believe him. I-,” He chuckled in disbelief, “-I could kill him.” His hand reached up and he flung his sheriff’s hat into the wall in anger and ran a hand through his long hair.

While Carl was fuming, I couldn’t help but want to kiss him. He was so protective and he cared so much and that was all it took for me to give in to the urge to fall for him. He was sitting on the edge of the bed with his head in his hands. I was standing by the dresser admiring this boy. My boy. I glanced down at my arm in the sling and slowly slipped it out and let the sling hit the floor. I walked slowly over to Carl and put a hand on his cheek. He looked up at me in shock when I straddled his lap and immediately placed my lips on his. His hands connected with my hips as mine found his shoulder length hair. I moved my mouth down to his neck and he lifted his head and pecked my lips before reaching for my shirt. I knew where this was heading as soon as my shirt hit the cold floor. His lips found mine like magnets and I was beginning to go with my natural instincts and grind down on his lap. Carl seemed to realize my intentions when I did this.
“Are you sure you’re ready?” He breathed out, tearing his lips from mine.
“Yes, unless you don’t want to?” I said shakily.
“I want to more than anything. I just want to make sure you want this too.” He whispered. Its obvious that we were both virgins since we had only just had our first kiss. Carl was looking me up and down and ground his hands into the skin of my ass. I let out a throaty moan and lunged my face forward and connected our lips again. “I’ll take that as a yes?” He smiled into the kiss and so did I. I climbed off his lap and took a seat next to him on the bed before pulling his face back to mine so I was underneath his broad body. My bra was older and had the clip in the front so Carl easily got it off me.  “So pretty.” He sighed as he connected his mouth to my neck. He started to move south towards my breasts and the butterflies in my stomach erupted. His warm mouth enclosed on my left nipple and I let out a soft moan as I tangled my hand in his long dark locks. One of his hands found a place on my right breast and he shakily massaged it, careful not to hurt me. My hips rolled up into his and his eye moved up and met mine. He smiled cheekily before going back to work on my other breast while his hand moved down toward my shorts. The button on this particular pair was broken so my belt was the only thing holding my shorts to my hips. He couldn’t quite figure out the belt so I pushed him up softly and sat up so I could take the shorts off myself. I fell back against the bed in only my panties and I heard Carl take a sharp breath in. His lip was between his teeth and he looked me up and down again. I wanted him so bad, I basically pulled him on top of me again. He began playing with the waistband, tugging it away from my body so I felt the cold air rush to my heat. I shivered slightly and he pulled his mouth away from the skin of my neck. “May I?” he grinned gesturing to the fabric hanging on my hips. I bit my lip and nodded. Before he pulled them off, he started kissing down my torso. His sloppy kisses moved from the valley in between my breasts, down to my navel. With my panties now out of the way, he placed a kiss right above my needy heat.  Before his mouth could do what I so badly wanted, he climbed off the bed and moved back so he could pull down his shorts and boxers. My eyes trailed up and down his body slowly and I felt my butterflies move south and engulf my core. I realized I was staring at his body longer than necessary, but he didn’t seem to notice. He was just standing at the edge of the bed with a smug grin on his face.
“What?” I cocked my head to the side. He moved forward seductively and kneeled on the bed in front of me.
“I am never letting you go.” He whispered as he grabbed my face in his hands. “I love you.” He sighed before reconnecting our lips and laying us down. His hands were all over my skin, lighting it on fire. I moaned into his mouth when he ghosted over my core. He took that an incentive to pay more attention to that specific area. His middle finger slid up my folds a few times before he determined that I was wet enough for him to push it in.

“How do you know how to do all this?” I wondered. “I mean you’re really ad-ah-vanced for a v-virgin.” I stuttered a bit as he played around with my folds.

“I shared a room with Abraham and Rosita for a month. Let’s just say they weren’t subtle.” He chuckled before shifting focus back onto my core.

Being my first time, I wasn’t sure how it would feel. “Just tell me if I hurt you, okay?” he whispered into my skin. I nodded and he continued his movements. I felt one of his fingers stretch me a little. It was a strange sensation, not painful, not pleasurable. Just strange. He pulled his finger out slowly and slid it up over my clit. I squealed and bucked my hips into his hand. “Shhh, Y/N. We have to be quiet.” I could feel his smile against my neck and then I saw it as he pulled away. “You ready, babe?”
“Yes, more than ready.” I sighed and lifted my hips up a bit. He climbed back over me and kissed my lips softly, passionately. One of his hands moved down to grasp his shaft and pump it a few times. I moaned when his tip grazed over my entrance. He applied a more pressure until he was pushing it between my folds. He was barely inside me and I felt a sharp burning sensation. I made a sharp intake and he completely stopped.
“Did I hurt you? Do you want to stop?” His face was panicked and he searched my face for any sign of pain.
“No, no I’m okay. Just go really slow, alright? I’ll tell you if I need to stop.” I assured him. He nodded and pushed in further. I closed my eyes and tried to ignore the fire that was making its way through my lower abdomen. I held onto his shoulders and suppressed the cries that were threatening to escape my mouth. He pulled back out again and before he could push in, I stopped him.
“Baby, I’m hurting you. I don’t wan-” He went to sit up, but I held him close to me.
“No, I really want to do this. It, it just hurts.” I said, a tear escaping my eye. He kissed my cheek where the tear was and then my forehead.
“I never want to see you in pain.” He choked out.
“It’s going to hurt no matter what. I trust you with this Carl.” I smiled and leaned my head up to kiss his cheeks. “Go ahead baby.” I intertwined our fingers and he lined himself up again. He pushed in slower than last time, but the pain was still there. My face tensed from the pain, but I felt him kissing my cheeks lightly. He kissed me all over my face as he moved in and out slowly.
“You feel so good, baby.” His voice was laced with pleasure and that alone made this experience worth it. He buried his face in my neck while trying to control his speed, making sure not to go to fast.
“It’s okay, Carl. You can go faster.” I held onto the back of his neck and kissed right under his ear. He groaned and picked up the pace slightly. The burning was subsiding, but still remained as he buried himself deep inside me. I tried to focus on his pleasure instead of mine and it helped take my mind off the pain. “I love you too Carl.” His hips stuttered a bit, hearing me respond to the words he said earlier. I moaned and he brought his lips to my own. He rested his forehead on mine and I could feel sweat forming. His body was tensing and his sighs were becoming audible moans. “Cum for me babe.” I whispered into his skin. I could feel his fists clench the sheets and he delivered one specifically hard thrust that made my head spin. It was a new feeling that wasn’t strange or painful, but extremely satisfying. I let out an embarrassing pornographic moan into his shoulder and Carl’s head shot up and a grin was stamped on his face. I smiled and pulled his lips back to mine and began rocking my hips into his.
“Oh God Y/N.” He groaned out loudly and began thrusting deep and fast. My mouth attached to his collarbone and I tried to stifle my moans, but it didn’t work.
“Carl, baby.” I shakily moaned.
“I’m so c-close.” He breathed into my skin and then I felt his abdomen convulse above me. He stilled inside me, breathing heavily and continuing to leave sweaty, wet kisses over every part of my neck and face. “I love you so much.” He sighed as he tried to catch his breath.

“I love you too. So much.” I sighed, still holding him close to me. Before he could even pull out, we heard a knock at the door. I was terrified that it was Rick coming to take me away. Carl’s head shot up and we quickly scrambled to put our clothes on. I hadn’t remembered that I had 89 stitches in my arm until I went to pull on my shirt. Carl saw me struggling and my shirt was half-way on when the door opened.

“Oh, I-uh-I should have waited for an answer, but-uh- Carl can I speak t-to you?”

message for part 7!

There are so many tips and tricks to increase productivity throughout the day, but these are 10 of my favorite tips! I’ve found that incorporating these into my daily routine has really helped me focus my energy and get more work done. 


Tip #1: Do a little bit every day.

This is huge! Breaking down big tasks and working on them in really really really tiny bits helps more than one would think. Knowing that a particular task will only take 5 minutes a day will help reduce the overwhelming feeling of having too much work and not enough time. This tip is something that some of the best students do, and it’s also key if you want to develop a new habit or get better at a skill.

Tip #2: Don’t worry about stuff.

You don’t need every single app or notebook or planner to get things done. Find a system and stick with it! What works for someone else might not work for you, so spend some time trying out different methods and find your fit! Remember that how you use your system is more important than what it consists of.

Tip #3: Choose 3 tasks that must get done and finish those first.

The easiest way to reduce a large to-do list is to work on the most important tasks first. Sometimes finishing everything on your list just isn’t realistic, and focusing on the most important things can prevent you from spending time on something that really doesn’t matter.

Tip #4: If something only takes 2 minutes, finish it right away.

It takes more time to plan when to do the task in the future than to do it right away. You’ll feel accomplished and you won’t spend valuable energy on something that ultimately doesn’t matter.

Tip #5: Use the Pomodoro technique.

If you’re unfamiliar with the Pomodoro technique you can read more about it here, or just by looking it up. Essentially, it’s a method of time management that breaks up work times in 20 or 30 minute intervals with breaks in-between. If you struggle with procrastination (and everyone does at some point) this technique is definitely worth trying out. So many people have had success with this method!

Tip #6: Take breaks and don’t feel bad about it.

It’s impossible to work in large stretches without giving yourself breaks. You’re going to burn out, and recovering from that won’t be enjoyable. Don’t feel guilty either. Enjoy your break wholeheartedly. Tell yourself that you deserve that break.

Tip #7: Say no.

You can’t do it all, so don’t try to. You know your limits, so don’t push them! Your precious time and energy won’t be wasted on something that you really don’t want to do, and in a few years you may not even remember doing said thing.

Tip #8: Keep a sheet of paper next to you to write down things that come to your mind, especially if your mind wanders a lot during work.

Part of my procrastination was due to the fact that my mind wandered a lot every time I sat down to try to get something done. Keeping a list of things that came to my mind while I was studying made it easier for me to focus on what mattered. Since the task is written down, you won’t forget it and when you have time later, you can go back and take care of it.

Tip #9: Keep temptations far away from you when working.

Whether it be your phone, email, or the TV, go far away from it when trying to get work done. There are a number of extensions and plug-ins that can block certain websites for a period of time which reduces the temptation to check Facebook one more time.

Tip #10: Monitor your progress.

I like to keep a list of all the things I’ve already done that day right next to my to-do list. I write down everything I’ve completed, no matter how small the task was. Sometimes seeing all the things that you’ve accomplished can make you feel better about the work in front of you. Applying this on a larger scale can be immensely helpful as well.


And that’s all! A lot of these have helped me with procrastination, so I definitely recommend trying these out. Let me know if you guys want any more posts like this, and don’t be afraid to ask questions! Best of luck!

Artsy INTJ – Yeah, it happens sometimes

For people who don’t know them, or have never listened to them carefully, INTJs are all about science. But that’s simply not true.

For how weird it might sound, I love art. Not only finding a personal meaning in it, I love drawing and beauty in itself.

Also, I’ve found out that artistic skills might actually be useful in an INTJ’s life – and we all know how important usefulness is.

Let’s proceed with order.

First, the obvious one. Drawing has developed my Se. The activity of drawing requires lots of focus on reality – of which INTJs usually lack or struggle with. It really keeps me grounded in reality and helps me live in the moment. It has thought me the value of observation and the importance of details, and now I can brag about Sherlock-like observation skills.

Second, it clicks with Fi. There are some paintings I’ve instantly felt a connection with, others that I love because they hide a profound meaning, but they have all helped me getting to know myself better and communicating with my Fi – which is sometimes kind of hard.

For example, have you ever seen Rob Gonsalves paintings? They really are awesome.

Third, Te. Art has little to do with logic, but that doesn’t mean that you can’t rationalise it. That what I do all the time – rationalise things. That’s what I’m doing right now with this post. Te makes you look for the usefulness of art and for a way to apply your skills to real life. That’s what got me interested in clothing and fashion. Using artistic abilities to dress well has helped me being more influential in social environments and ultimately achieving my goals faster. All because I’ve learned how to match clothes. Yes, society is that crazy.

Ultimately, art is also a great opportunity to get creative and expressing my Ni. Ni sometimes speaks in visions, images and metaphors that might be hard to express with words. That’s why art comes in handy.

anonymous asked:

can you write something where it turns out MC is like super young and the entire RFA is like "Oh my god i must protect this small child" or develops familial platonic feelings for them? maybe MC is an orphan? idk. I just want some platonic fluff really. like a Friendship route. a Found Family route. If you don't wanna do it, it's cool just delete this ask!!

oh my god yes. (i’m including V because honestly I think his reaction would be the most amusing of them all.)

Yoosung:

  • He’d be delighted to no longer be the youngest RFA member. 
  • Finally there was someone that looked up to him and it would be great. 
    • That would definitely help motivate him to play less LOLOL (he probably wouldn’t quit completely, but he’d want to be a good role model for MC and couldn’t do that if he was constantly playing games)
  • He’d love to help out with their school work even if it were a subject he was not at all fond of, he’d work hard so that they felt good about what they knew for the assessments that their school had
  • He’d be really protective of them and honestly wouldn’t really mind Seven teasing him as long as he didn’t tease MC 
  • They’d honestly be the little sibling he never had but always desperately wanted. 

Jaehee:

  • She is not the most comfortable around children. It isn’t that she dislikes children, but she really has no idea how to take care of them or how to play with them
  • When she heard that MC was only a teenager that automatically made her uncomfortable simply because they’d be loud and annoying and irresponsible, right? 
  • She’d be shocked to see how hard working and diligent they were
  • She’d also be really protective of them in the sense that nobody, especially Jumin, would be allowed to give them a lot of work. 
  • Jaehee would be insistent on stressing the necessity of sleeping and eating well since they’re still growing 
  • Also if they were ever struggling with school or anything, she’d probably drop everything to help them out because she hates to see them stressed. 

Jumin:

  • He’d be pretty uncomfortable dealing with a child as well (Even though they’d probably be like a teenager he’d still be a bit uncomfortable) 
  • He’s never really spent any time around kids before, even when he was a kid he was more than a little strange and didn’t have too many friends his own age 
  • He’d be shocked by how determined and hardworking they are and how efficiently their work is. 
  • He’d be so nice to them
  • He’s sarcastic and rude to most of the RFA but the moment he realises that they’re so young he becomes super patient with them,
  • He’s so kind If the others are being loud or annoying or if any of them dare to tease MC, Jumin will be so protective 

Zen:

  • He’d be in total shock and would definitely try his best to help them out with their work, both with getting guests for the party and any school work that they could be having trouble with
  • He’d probably feel pretty bad that he couldn’t be more helpful with the schoolwork thing
  • Still he’d definitely be the one to cheer MC up if they were feeling overwhelmed or stressed out
  • I’m getting this feeling that MC might have been a fan of his before and would totally freak out that they were talking to him every day and Zen would find that to be absolutely adorable 
    • I feel like they’d probably cry during the first phone call because like “omg I’m talking to someone famous” and he’d just be so amused 
    • They’d probably be like “I HAVE TO TELL ALL MY FRIENDS”
  • He’s definitely the reassuring friend though

707:

  • He already knew that they were young from the background check so because of that he’d definitely try and stop them from getting too stressed out. 
  • Even with him being constantly stressed out himself, he’d constantly check to make sure that they were sleeping enough and eating well and just taking care of themself in general. 
  • He’d still joke around with them a lot, but he’d be really careful to make sure he didn’t make them uncomfortable
  • I’m not sure if he’d tell the rest of the RFA how old MC was 
  • I feel like he’d probably leave it to MC to tell them, just so he didn’t embarrass them
  • He’d let them know that he knows how old they are either through a phone call or a text message just so they’re both on the same page
  • Honestly I bet they’d already know that he knew how old they were because of the background check. 
  • He’d tease them. He really would try not to and the moment he noticed that he’d upset MC he would stop, but they were just so cute and easy to tease and they always went along with his jokes and pranks and they really understood his sense of humor
  • If they were struggling in school you bet he’d help them out
  • Especially if they were struggling in math or science he’d be the best tutor because not only is he really good at those subjects, but he understands them well enough that he can teach the right stuff, but in a way that’s more fun and easier to learn 
  • He might teach them some programming dependent or not on if they showed any interest, he wouldn’t want to force it upon them, but if they were curious he’d be really excited to help them out. 

V: 

  • He would be horrified. 
  • There is really no other way to put this. 
  • He would be absolutely horrified. 
  • He hired a child to almost single-handedly run a charity party. Sure he could blame Seven for not telling him that MC was so young, or find other circumstances to blame, but he knew, in all honesty that it was his fault that he could not blame anyone but himself
  • He’d be so apologetic to them, honestly to the point where he’d probably visit the apartment himself just to express how sorry he was for putting them in this position 
  • He’d give them the option to leave at any moment (and would probably offer to tell Seven to not restrict their access to the messenger either because really, it wasn’t their fault that they were young and stressed)
  • When they said they wouldn’t leave however, it made him smile
  • He’d definitely offer to help them out in any way that they’d need 
  • “Do you want to work from home?”
  • Done
  • “Do you want to get time off school?” 
  • Done
  • “Do you want this to count for some sort of service hours?” 
  • I’ll call the school myself 

My name is Tobias Nicolai, I’m a freelance photographer based in Copenhagen, Denmark

My work evolves mainly around portrait and documentary photography. I really wont say much about my photographies, and just let them speak for themselves. By now, I think I’ve finally found what I want to spend my life doing, taking photos, whatever the cost may be.

For many years I have been shooting with 35mm Minolta cameras from the 70’s. Recently upgraded to a full frame DSLR, because developing more than 15 rolls of film per week, got too expensive in the long run, especially for a student. 

This specific photo is of my good friend Sofie, who lost all of her hair due to alopecia. I really think this is one of my best photos to this date. Partly because of the extremely beautiful motive, but also because it showcases what I want to do with photography – relentlessly go the extra mile, to get close and to be right by the edge.

Take a look around, I hope you like what you see.

All photos are shot and edited by myself. Original stuff.

I was going through ToA comment section on Amazon and I found these masterpieces. *strong sarcasm*. I’m sorry for this post but I really need to defend Rick Riordan.

First of all… ruin Nico?! Man, Nico has been gay and sassy since the day Rick created him and you can’t tell me otherwise. Also a huge part of his character development is based on Nico dealing with who he his, speaking of his father, Bianca’s death and his feelings for Percy. He learn that he has friends who loves him.  
 
 
I’ll talk a lot about the second pic so let’s start  
 
 
“I can maybe understand Rick wanting to appeal to that crow but I don’t think it needs to be so heavily addressed in a children’s book”  
It’s not “wanting to appeal” it’ representation and YES it needs to be addressed in children’s books. Kids need to know that it’s OK to be LGBTQ+, that they are not broken or sick, that they are loved. There are many queer kids in the world and they need representation as well as hetero, white, black, Oriental, Latino and Muslims kids.  
 
“In the previous novels the exact same characters NEVER gave any indication of being homosexual or bisexual in any way”  
  (I assume s/he’s talking about Nico and Apollo)  
Nico is forced to came out by Cupid, he wasn’t ready, he was still dealing with his sexuality. Nico isn’t the stereotypical homosexual boy and probably this person thinks that gays wear tight clothes and strange bright colors and are feminine in their moves. Yes, he never gave any indication of being homosexual but he never gave any indication of being heterosexual, people just assumed it. People always assume that you are heterosexual because it’s “normal” and if you are queer you have to come out.
This person also wrote that s/he really like mythology but s/he doesn’t know that in the myth of Hyacinthus it’s clear that Apollo is in love with him. Also in Ancient Greece a lot of warriors had a male lover, it was no big deal if they had also a family and sons. 

So please, please, don’t say bullshit.
(I’m sorry for my horrible English but it’s not my first language)

I don’t care if you ship Korrasami Platonic, romantically, or  not all. The fact two girls who started off in the series not really cordial to each other, Korra thinking that she was a typical rich girl which she found out she was wrong, they both dated the same guy, realized it was not worth it and ending up creating one of the strongest bonds in the show and having a much need vacation? How many shows does that happen in? That two girls actually become really close instead of throwing sneaky remarks at each other?? THAT’S CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT BITCHES!!  I’m so proud right now. I was so worried after season two would Korra and Asami could ever get the whole Mako thing behind them and become good friends. Book 3 and 4 prove me wrong. 

You better give Bryke a round of applause!!! 

Still creating strong female relationships rather it’s platonic or romantic.

If someone say that Legend of Korra is anti- feminist I will water smack you in the mouth. 

YES YES YES!!!!

-So I found this image recently. Now obviously it’s a pic from Destiny’s development, and shows something that never got into the end game, but being the huge destiny nerd I am I see a story. I see a warlock, who spent a great deal of time with Hunters, probably assigned to a cadre of them for one reason or another, research of an area outside the City walls perhaps.

-And I see a warlock that over time grew to respect the Hunters in a way Warlocks in the City don’t really get too, due to frequently working apart, and the general playful animosity shown between all three Guardian orders.

-I see a warlock, who begins to understand the Hunter concept that a keen blade is sometimes more necessary than a sharp mind or a heavy fist and that in the law of the wilds, a slash sometimes comes faster than a thought.

-This warlock is carrying a scout rifle, and a knife, a weapon of range and finesse, and one of stealth and cunning. A warlock who has accepted the limitations of themselves and embarrassed the strengths of others. A warlock that now understands that the strength of the wolf, is the pack.

Sorry, just a huge dork who has cross class cooperation feels

Who’s That Vans Girl: Zara Staples

It’s girls like Zara that make us love our job: We found her photos on Instagram and were immediately hooked.  She’s always photographing adventurous girls in breathtaking landscapes or creating killer, colorful still lifes.  And the most impressive part: Zara’s only 15! We caught up with the New Zealander to find out more about her work.

I think what really appeals to me about mystic messenger is the guys value their friendship with each other far more than any feelings they could have for you.

They all develop feelings for you to some degree, but when it’s obvious who you’ve chosen they understand. They may joke about being jealous, but ultimately they step back and choose to be happy that their friend found someone so great that loves them.

that’s so rare with dating sims, and loving your character destroying friendships and relationships is so stupidly common and it always makes me uncomfortable.

so it speaks to their depth as characters and friendship that ultimately, they care about staying friends more than some passing feelings for a person that didn’t pick them. that’s so healthy and makes them seem like more three dimensional characters that I actually want to be around
