but i wanted to include all of them anyway

i want an intense scene between keith and lance. they’re in the middle of battle, all the other paladins are somewhere else. everything around them is moving so fast, but then it’s a close up of them, and keith asks “do you trust me?” and they’re looking at each other, eyes searching, and lance says “yes” and they’re still looking at each other, intensely, logger than needed, before the moment is forced to break


Women of the House of Haleth

Like to [the House of Beor] were the woodland folk of Haleth, but they were of lesser stature, and less eager for lore. They used few words, and did not love great concourse of men; and many among them delighted in solitude, wandering free in the greenwoods while the wonder of the lands of the Eldar was new upon them.

- The Silmarillion

[The Folk of Haleth] did not willingly adopt new things or customs, and retained many practices that seemed strange to the Eldar and the other Atani, with whom they had few dealings except in war. Nonetheless, they were esteemed as loyal allies and redoubtable warriors, though the companies they sent to battle beyond their borders were small…One of the strange practices spoken of was that many of their warriors were women, though few of these went abroad to fight in the great battles.

Tosaki’s wedding

Haha okay so: 31.07. Day 7: rest?  | anything goes  | sun

I decided to take this day to draw Tosaki’s wedding (with his fiance, I think her name is Ai?) in a happy ending maybe…haha I don’t know it seemed like a funny idea in my mind XD and drawing all this crap was actually really fun. So this was clearly meant to be ridiculous so, what the hell? I just hope you enjoy and laugh with me at this shit I made. 

Since Ajin is such a dense manga, and I really love the characters, sometimes I just feel like I want to see them doing stupid things together… (unfortunately I didn’t think it’d be right to include Sato and the others here xd except for Tanaka, cuz he’s just a cinnamon roll). 

(Anyway I apologize for the bad quality of some drawings that are next ): when I’ve my computer fixed, I’ll make them well).

anonymous asked:

I was wondering about how open the characters are about their sexualities and gender identities and such. I mean, p much everyone isn't a straight cis person, but is everyone aware of that? In this universe, is that chill, or is the friendgroup just a bubble of being awesome even tho the school doesn't know, or what? Also- have you ever made a post with all the character's identities/disabilities before??? Ok, sorry to bother you, and I LOVE this comic!!! The art and story is gorg and engaging ❤

 hello  ❤

ngl,  I didn’t initially want to discuss their MIs, sexualities and gender, because I didn’t want people thinking it’s being romanticized, or that the characters would be reduced to naught but.. their gender/mental illness. But. Still. Representation is important and I am. So tired of mentally ill characters being demonized dude.  

I kinda thought their school would be, all liberal? It’s a big fancy schmancy school where nobody.. Really cares what you do with your life, so long as you don’t bother ‘em. But that’s just most of the students. (not all.) 

So. let’s start with Dallas. He’s trans, but he’s passing. He doesn’t struggle with being misgendered a lot, since he A. Doesn’t really talk much in the first place, and he talks in a really, tired, Jane-Lane-season-1 mumble.But y’know, the more observant people Talk, since middleschool, he’s changed A Lot. Tl;dr, Dallas is not out to anyone he’s not close to, just the rest of the baseball team, Mr. Beaumont (Tyler’s dad, and their geometry teacher), Coach Williams, and, maybe, Wendy. 

Dallas is bisexual, he has psychotic depression and dyscalculia. Established that his therapist is a massive douchewad, there’s probably something else that’s gone undiagnosed. (something along the lines of dependent personality disorder, and etc)

Malek, there’s always names for People Like Malek. He’s unabashedly pansexual. He’d really date anyone who can make him smile. He’s out to everyone, (that includes his aunt’s live-in boyfriend.)

Malek has anxiety that often gets dismissed because he doesn’t show signs of being mentally ill. 

Poppy is not out to her parents. She’s out do Dev, and the rest of the school knows she’s bisexual. She doesn’t have a filter, and she says what she wants, and then afterwards she feels terrible to have acted like a jerk. She’s a real soft, good kid inside. She has BPD, and ngl, I wrote her to have struggled with ED when she was a bit younger. 

Jonas/Parker is autistic. I’ve talked about him and Dallas’ disabilities here. He’s bisexual, but he is not out to anyone but Phoebus and Tyler. I think he could be interpreted as someone who has PTSD from abusive parents, but I need to do much more research on this.

Ari is nonbinary. They’re not out to anyone except the baseball team. They use any pronouns. He/She/They, it don’t matter for a nihilist like Ari. They have AVPD, and it’s pretty hard for them to open up to.. Anyone at all. It’s Just Hard. They tend to lash out on people. 

Phoebus is an amputee. He’s had a rough tumble with osteosarcoma, but he’s alive, and it’s all that matters. Sometimes he gets tired, he uses a wheelchair. He has depression, but, like Malek, it tends to get forgotten because he doesn’t show signs of being mentally ill. He’s pansexual, and he’s out to everyone.

Blake is gay and a cocktail of undiagnosed cluster B personality disorders. He’s too afraid of seeing a therapist, He is not out to anyone outside of the baseball team, but People Talk. 

Ben is HoH. Dallas is his bi awakening. I think he has ADHD and PTSD, but I’m still reading into it.  For Spoiler-y Reasons, I Can’t Disclose Too Much.

Sara is lesbian. She doesn’t care about people knowing, but she only tells people when boys hit on her. Again, I can’t disclose too much about her personality without it being too spoiler-y!

Tyler has OCD. At the moment, he’s assumed he was straight up until he let himself get close to Blake. Blake makes him feel all sorts of wiggly and angry things in his stomach. He wants to kiss Blake but he also wants to punch Blake in the head sometimes. His Feelings Need a lot of work. What’s it to have a crush on anyone anyway. He’s too young to be in love, and his greatest fear is to end up like his dad, divorced, always sitting late at night in a boring old office, disgruntled and malcontent, cursing while grading some dumbass’ paper. He’s not out to anyone, and everyone, including himself, assumes he’s straight.

anonymous asked:

Do you have any tips for creating portfolios to get into art/animation programs?? Like I rly rly want to be able to go to art school but it stresses me out when I read about portfolios cause I have no idea where to start and I feel like I won't be good enough in time cause I'm in grade ten and have like never done any life drawing??? So I need any advice you can give sorry if I'm bothering you

I can’t speak for animation programs since i only applied to a fine arts program (i can imagine applying for animation would be totally different), but i’ll give u some tips based on what worked for me:

1. dont overload ur portfolio. i would pick ur 10 best pieces, 15 tops. u wanna show em that ur decisive

1. people are interested in variety!!!! in medium AND in subject matter. Try to include all the different materials u are proficient in, even if its not the specific area u want to major in (this applied for me, anyway– i was applying to my school’s fine arts program which included ALL the art majors, so even though i wanted to major in graphic design i still put a bunch of traditional media pieces and sculpture in my portfolio).

As far as subject matter, i would suggest including a mix of observational and experimental pieces, but make it overall more observational-heavy. So that’d be still life, figure drawing, landscape, self portrait, et cetera. u can still include a few experimental pieces to show them u know how to be creative, but i think observational drawing skills and principles are really important to admissions people. u want to show them that u know how to draw more than one thing and that u dont rely on artistic crutches

2. I took a “portfolio boot camp” class at one of the schools i was interested in the summer before I applied. It was basically a course where u made a different piece each week – all observational stuff, to help pad out ur portfolio. This was SUPER useful bc it gave me an opportunity to do things i wouldnt have gotten a chance to do on my own, like a long-pose figure drawing. If u are able to, i’d check and see if there are any portfolio prep classes near u, in case u wanna feel Extra Prepared

3. even if u cant take a portfolio class, it’s still totally doable to build a varied portfolio all on ur own. if u want a figure drawing, see if u can convince a friend to model for u for a few hours (or bribe them with food). u can even model for urself in the mirror. go into ur backyard and draw a landscape or ur neighbors’ houses. arrange some random objects in a pile and throw some nice lighting on it. Go Nuts™

4. u have SO MUCH time do not worry. i didnt even start purposefully building my portfolio until a few months before i applied places. dont worry u got this

sorry i cant give more advice im in the middle of something BUT!!! i believe in u anon. lmk if u have any more specific questions

alright so i know i ought to take a break for the sake of my own health at this point (and by health i mean skincare cause yall give me acne) but i’m terrible at shutting up. so one last thing:

the fact that the majority of you seem to think that me speaking out against the bullshit and micro-aggressive behavior black girls like me have to face in this fandom is simply more ammo to ‘defend yourself against’ in this stupid ship war is truly hilarious, but also infuriating.

me saying that kallura is not the worst thing in the world is me defending ALLURA, my favorite character in this show, first and foremost.

princess allura is a black girl character unlike one i have ever seen in mainstream media before.

~ i go into detail about that here and this same topic was even discussed in a ‘black girl nerds’ article here 

but anyone who knows me, and follows my other sideblog fuckin knows that i’d been hoping to see keith and lance be happy boyfriends in a wholesome and romantic relationship on screen since before this fandom could decide on a ship name for them. i’m fuckin GAY, you weirdos. no duh i understand how groundbreaking klance being canon would be. it’d mean the sun and the moon to non-straight people of color everywhere, including my own damn self.

but the fact is that this fandom took the wonderful concept that is “klance” and perverted it and toxified it AND have been using faux progressive arguments to use this ship as a reason to shit on allura — who again, is a character that means a lot to black and brown girls in this fandom for myriads of reasons. so yes, fuck all of you from the bottom of my gay black girl heart 💞 !!

and i don’t speak for any other black girl but myself, so if you’re mad about this perspective take it up with me, you cowards. don’t bother any other black girls in this fandom, my inbox is open.

kallura may never be canon. who fuckin knows. who fuckin cares. neither will some of the few truly wholesome ships in this hell fandom like hunk x keith or hunk x lance or nyma x shay. does it really fuckin matter? as long as the ship isn’t normalizing abuse or pedophilia, let people ship what they want. god.

and no, kallura is not toxic, you guys can’t even decide why you hate it. and that’s exactly what this post is about.

i defend kallura occasionally on this blog solely because this is an ALLURA BLOG. and kallura is the one ship involving allura that actually has some potential to happen on screen. if you want to reduce everything i say as me participating in your dumbass ship war, then go ahead. i couldn’t spare one fuck.

anyway. popular anti-kallura arguments and my response to them all under the cut. all in one tidy text post for easy consumption — screencaps included cause i’m a perfectionist and i want all my posts to look nice ^^

Yes, this is Admiral T. Goldwyn as we know him with Huma Abedin and her son, and with his lovely daughter Tess, yesterday at Disneyland.
And yes, that is his left hand that you see, notably missing a key detail.

The warning I put out last time remains: I swear if I see ONE person acting out and so much as THINKING of @ing Tony on Twitter and comment or ask about his ring, I am going to ROAST them publicly.

People can comment on it all they want PRIVATELY or anyway by NOT including him. Yet again basic manners, because you do NOT EVER ask even people you know about “oh so how come you’ve ditched your ring?” let alone a COMPLETE stranger. So, you’ve been warned.

Oh btw, these photos? Are from TMZ. So someone wanted them out there.


Meantime, time for the usual round of drinks on the S.S. Terry.

Can some of you stop treating me like a piece of shit just because I ship Hidekane? like I never say nothing bad about others ships and i always keep my mouth closed only to not make drama. And in case you can’t read, I said “some” so don’t come at me with the “Not everyone is like that!111!!!!!!!111!”. I’m talking about the ones who don’t have respect and just treat you like trash because they don’t ship what you ship. I think Touken is pretty cute and if i never shipped Hidekane i would for sure ship them. It’s not the kind of Touken vs Hidekane. It’s just that when i’m to obsessed with one ship, it’s pretty hard to me to ship another one who includes the same person of my goddam otp. I mean, if Ishida decides to make Touken endgame, I wouldn’t mind. But of course, it would hurt, because that’s not my main ship. Anyways, you guys can do whatever the hell you want. Ship what you want. You can have an notp, and hate the ship with all your might, but stop treating others like shit just because of those goddam ships. Neither you should insult or threat Ishida, it’s his history and he will do whatever he wants. And to the ones who are throwing the “it’s canon” in our faces, stop it. We know it, we know you’re happy, you’re excited and you can’t believe it happened. But it was pretty obvious. You guys probably know there are immature fans as much as there are mature fans too. But you can’t deal with the immature ones, and you know they will get salty at anytime so you just throw more shit to them and start wars. And If you want to drop it, just do it. Who the fuck cares if you get called fake fan, you know what you are and what you want to do, don’t worry about it. Honestly, I don’t care if I get more hate with this, but I really had the need to say what was in my mind. Just enjoy the manga, it’s not that hard.

HERE! Have a heartwarming scene of Bruno and Dad Viktor! This takes place after episode 7. Like what I expected, they didn’t include this scene in the anime! In exchange for that, Viktor indeed looks like a cold dad! XD Actually in the manga, he chose all of them to help him with his work. Heine then worries that the presence of his four sons will distract Viktor so he only let Bruno and Leonhardt join him. Anyway, I think deleting that scene is a good move in a way too. They did a good job in making Bruno’s struggle looks miserable. That he’s jealous and wants to be acknowledge so badly, that’s why he works hard. Tbh I like this side of Bruno very much. Its so human. 

anonymous asked:

Hi there! Do you have any long, slow-burn fics to recommend? It's okay if you don't, thanks :)

Ooooh thank you for the request! Many of my favorite fics ever are long slow-burns!

Wild by Seefin (93K)- “No,” Harry said, by way of greeting. Malfoy’s blonde head rose slowly, carelessly. “Get out.”
“I feel as though we’ve already established this, Potter,” Malfoy responded. “And I feel that what we established was that you telling me to get out of places really doesn’t make me more likely to vacate them.”

This is a really really REALLY lovely fic in which Draco shows up one day to complete his potions studies at the house in the Irish countryside where Harry lives with several amazing badass OC girls. At first they (drarry) don’t get along at all and it’s so fun to watch them come together! This fic also contains some Linny, which I love <3 Also Seefin is an amazing author in general and you should honestly read every one of their other fics as well (hi @seefin, you don’t know me but i love you!)

What We Pretend We Can’t See by gyzym (131K)- Seven years out from the war, Harry learns the hard truth of old history: it’s never quite as far behind you as you thought.
I read this fic relatively recently and within the first 10,000 words I knew it was my new number one favorite fic, and I WAS RIGHT. I can’t even explain what makes this fic so good besides just flailing about how incredibly well-written and compelling and hilarious it is. Draco has bought Grimmauld Place (which is sentient!) and turned it into a museum, and Harry is an auror who needs to track down whoever is mysteriously after Draco. A few months later and I still can’t get over this fic and how WONDERFUL it is.

Mental by sara_holmes (186.5K)- Harry has had quite enough of sharing his mind with someone else, thankyouverymuch. A miscast Legilimecy spell says otherwise.
This is also one of my favorites of all time (again, read everything by this author if by some miracle you haven’t already). Draco and Harry get stuck with a mental bond (!!!yes!!!) which makes it really hard for them to hide things from each other. At first they can’t control it but eventually they can, and the moment they first use it willingly was just SO GREAT. Really, the whole fic is just so great.

Heartache by Bixgirl1 (25.5K)- “Harry doesn’t think about Malfoy anymore. Not really. Not intentionally. What if the one person you least expect is the only one who really understands what you’ve gone through?
Does this count as long? Regardless, you should read this one because when I made notes on what I thought of it, I wrote “slow and sweet,” and I stand my that assessment. There is lots of hurt/comfort and the getting together is lovely and gradual. For more wonderful hurt/comfort slow-burn, you should definitely also see her fic Balance, Imperfect (91,000 words) in which Draco is Harry’s physiotherapist. But it’s been recced a lot recently so I thought I’d give one of her older fics some love too! (also this is my second @bixgirl1 rec in one day; I’m clearly obsessed)

Domestic by frostywonder (55K)- Harry finds a stray and decides to take him home.
Draco is down on his luck, so what’s Harry to do but take him in? As you can guess from the title, there is tons of domesticity in this fic, and it’s just so cute and there are TONS of truly hilarious moments (including one of my favorite gems ever about Malfoy bowel-movements). They live together, it’s a secret, Draco learns to cook… what more could you ask for? This one just makes me feel so warm and fluffy, I’ve probably read it at least three times.

All Life is Yours to Miss by Saras_Girl (114.5K)- Professor Malfoy’s world is contained, controlled, and as solitary as he can make it, but when an act of petty revenge goes horribly awry, he and his trusty six-legged friend are thrown into Hogwarts life at the deep end and must learn to live, love and let go.
I you haven’t already read everything by Saras Girl, you are insanely lucky and you should go get started right now. She has many long fics and they are all incredible. This one is one of my favorites, because the boys are Professors and Draco has the most amazing pet (giant) beetle who is full of personality and named Stanley. But I probably should also link to the Foundations!verse because it is VERY good and VERY VERY slow-burn. Like, I was shocked that my interest was held for so long without so much as a kiss but IT WAS.

All Our Secrets Laid Bare by firethesound (149.5K)- Over the six years Draco Malfoy has been an Auror, four of his partners have turned up dead. Harry Potter is assigned as his newest partner to investigate just what is going on.
I feel like I’m only recommending the ones everyone has already read anyway, but that’s because they’re the best, so can you blame me?! Draco’s auror partners keep mysteriously dying and Harry can’t get along with any of his, so they are thrown together! The quintessential auror partners fic, with an amazing evolution from not-trusting-each-other to friends to lovers and TONS OF UST.

Bond by AnnaFugazzi (173.5K)- I started to write this before HBP came out, and crossed my fingers that HBP wouldn’t make it totally non-canon. No such luck, I’m afraid. This, therefore, is an AU story, where (SPOILER) still teaches (SPOILER), (SPOILER) didn’t try to (SPOILER), (SPOILER) didn’t succeed in (SPOILER), (SPOILER) never dated (SPOILER), and most importantly, (MAJOR ENDING SPOILERS) never happened.
You’ve all read Bond, right? It’s a (possibly THE?) classic— well— bonding fic. I’ll include it just in case you haven’t heard of it by some miracle (or maybe you want to read it again because last time you were like 15 years old?). The kissing happens kind of early but the romance isn’t until later so I think it still qualifies as slow-burn?

ANYWAY, I hope you find at least one fic on this list that you haven’t read already? They’re all seriously amazing in my opinion (no lukewarm recs from me!) so you can’t go wrong!

Prompt: Scott takes Reyes with him to one of the Remnant ruins to show him how beautiful it is. Reyes ends up loving the gravity elevator (even if he's scared at first) and they just float together, holding hands, in love and in awe of the beauty around them.

this is such a perfect request okay? i love it. 1120+ words.

“And you are– quite sure it is safe here now, yes?”

Reyes lingered at the door of the Vault, a dark silhouette with the blazing Kadaran sun behind him. Scott had went a little further in, but not by far; he half-turned and smiled over his shoulder.

“I cleared it out already,” he said. He thought it would maybe be a good idea not to mention that most of the hard work had been done by an uncontrollable cloud of matter that ‘cleansed’ all beings - organic or not - in its path, “C’mon, I wouldn’t bring you if it was risky.”

Reyes didn’t look entirely convinced but followed anyway. Scott knew any exile with half an ounce of sense - and there were quite a few, Reyes included - had stayed clear of the Remnant ruins, or at least sent mooks on their behalf. Of course none of them had been inside the Vault yet, or seen what the tech looked like when it was active. Scott wanted Reyes to be the first. He wanted to show him the glowing blue heart of Kadara, the epicentre that would make his kingdom not just hospitable, but thriving.

The pretty lights and cool, quiet seclusion? Well, they were just a bonus.

Can you do the main trio finding out their s/o id a professional swimmer and is a gold medalist in the Olympics?

Hey! I know the second request doesn’t want s/o to be an Olympic gold medalist, but your requests are very similar, so I wanted to put them together. I made sure to include some headcanons about a non-olympic swimmer, though. I hope this is okay! Thank you for the requests :3

[Viktor Nikiforov]

  • Every competition, every event, every anything, he’s there in the bleachers with your face on a shirt and your name on a big sign he’s holding
  • He even prints out a bunch of extra shirts in all different sizes to hand out to other spectators; they all give him really strange looks but take them anyway
  • mr. extra™ strikes again lmao what a cute bab tho amirite
  • As soon as he finds out you’re worthy of the Olympic games, he’s super excited and happy for you, but he tries to play it cool
  • “Pfft, Olympics? Not surprised. If anything, you’re too good to be competing in the Olympics. It wouldn’t be fair because of how much talent you have!”
  • and you know he’s going to pull the ‘i only kiss gold medals’ bullshit on you lmao but he’s such a softie he’ll kiss you no matter what
  • He takes pride in being able to stand next to such an amazing athlete, and he loves decorating his apartment with your combined awards and medals

[Yuri Katsuki]

  • He’s definitely a Proud Mom™ figure to you when it comes to sports, and he’s basically your number one supporter
  • and you know he packs you snacks and stuff for during/after your swim meets like ugh what a sweetie ;-; i love him
  • He really admires your work ethic and dedication to the sport; Yuri loves to sit in the stands at your swim competitions and just watch you do your thing
  • On nights before your swim meets, he cooks you big meals like katsudon to make sure you have enough strength and energy to perform you best the next day
  • After finding out about your participation in past Olympic games, he gets super excited and begs you to tell him all about it
  • imagine him looking like he did when he has his revelation about being a sexy pork cutlet bowl like awww such a cutie
  • Yuri understands how much pressure you can be put under while in competition, so he does his best to make sure you’re comfortable and calm while you’re competing
  • This sweetie pie is so proud of you and your dedication to the sport, regardless of how many medals you win

[Yuri Plisetsky]

  • Yuri thought swimming was a dumb sport before he met you, but you managed to change his perspective completely on how much work and dedication goes into the sport
  • When he attends your swim meets, he’s known to get a bit aggressive with the other spectators, yelling at them and threatening to fight them if they cheer to loudly for someone else
  • one time he got ejected for nearly starting a fistfight with another swimmer’s boyfriend and he went out and got ice cream for you as an apology lmao
  • Once he finds out you’re an Olympian, you basically give him the biggest mindfuck ever; he knew you were good, but knowing you were that good made his view on you go to the next level
  • He will probably get a little competitive with you, seeing who can get a better score/ranking in your respective competitions
  • and he always acts like ‘pfft so what i got a gold medal too’ but he secretly loves how you look with such a prize around your neck; it makes him proud
  • Yuri loves to post selfies of the two of you with all of the award’s you’ve both accumulated so he can post them and brag about how successful you both are
  • He may get a bit jealous when you perform better than him, but he’s your best supporter and he’s so proud of you and your accomplishments

likiliki12  asked:

Anarchy is controversal and stupid it denyes itself. If only rule is that there are no rules than it's a paradox. And let us not get started on the topic of how uncivilazied the whole concept is. So my question is what makes anarchist so diffrent from somebody like caveman? They didn't have any gods, pope, bishops, laws, govorment, presidents, or any tax to pay at all just like your preachings. So what makes you better than them?

From the look of your blog you seem primarily concerned with using short replies to insult people who are trying to make the world a little better. I don’t really expect that you will take the time to read my long answer. But maybe other people do want to read it so I am writing it anyway for the people who are interested. Maybe that includes you maybe it doesn’t. 

I could say so many different things to this, starting with the fact that most evidence shows that cave dwelling people actually had very few wars, took care of the sick and disabled and had a far more equal distribution of food and goods than we do today. Historians have often imagined the ‘uncivilized’ caveman’s life to be full of rape and warfare but there is no evidence for that at all. Many died at 30, sure, but that was because they did not yet have the technology to do 21th century health care. 

I do not want to get back to a caveman like lifestyle. All I am saying here is: the system we live in now brings out the worst in humanity. When people are not forced into a system of huge wealth unequality that forces people to work meaningless jobs for long hours under bad conditions for scraps, they’re actually pretty nice. When people have to distribute what they have in their own communities, they never come up with a ‘I keep 99% and you lot can devide this 1%’ system. You need the extensive system of capitalism to achieve that. 

Anarchy is not just about ‘no rules’, that is a twisted version of the concept that is being repeated over and over again by opponents and has no basis in real anarchism. Some of the main building blocks of anarchism are:

- The systems that are currently creating massive inequality need to be destroyed. That means dismantling capitalism, the state, borders, prisons, cops, and the distribution of money as we know it but it also means we need to dismantle white supremacy, the patriarchy, cissexism, heteronormativity, ableism, neuronormativity etc. 

- Distribution of goods should take place based on everyone getting what they need to live comfortably, and everyone working in ways that they want and can do comfortably. We can easily feed the world that way because we’ll no longer have to give 99% to the ultra rich. 

- All organization, be it a family, a factory or a whole city, should be organized around group-decision making and should be entirely voluntary. No systems should be set up that you can not leave.

- A lot of organizing involved setting rule together, things like ‘don’t put stuff on the wheelchair ramp’ and ‘everyone on this farm who can physically do the work needs to show up for the harvest because we need to get all the food inside before the weather turns bad’. But these are not rules as laws, they are rules as communication: stuff we agree on together because it makes our lives better. If someone feels that the rules they have set with a community no longer fit there is no punishment, there is a conversation about why they don’t fit and a search for a better way to organize the rules. If someone is harmful to others, there is a focus on protecting victims and simultaneously working with the harmful person to figure out what made them act in harmful ways and what they need to change. 

There is more, and there are a lot of groups within anarchism that would emphasize different aspects of anarchism, but as you can see, it’s definitely about a lot more than ‘no rules’. 

I once thought that Anarchy was just ‘no rules’ and it frightened me. Without rules, how would a small, neuroatypical, queer trans person like me be safe? How would my friends be safe? But I realized that anarchism is actually primarily concerned with breaking down all the systems that are creating an unsafe world for me and that the alternatives anarchists build focus on working together to create real safety in a way that the legal systems under capitalism can never provide.

Saga on Ice is a special tourism collaboration held by the city of Karatsu in Saga Prefecture, as Karatsu was used as the model for Hasetsu, Yuri’s home town in Yuri on Ice. Saga prefecture is right next to me(I live in northern Fukuoka), and although I’ve been to Saga city I’ve never been to Karatsu. I’ve always been meaning to explore Kyushu some more given how much time I’ve spent living here, and given that this event was going on over Golden Week and @hideoutfromreality​ was visiting I figured it was a good chance. 

What I knew: The Karatsu tourism organization are really excited about Karatsu being featured in an anime and want to take advantage of it with some limited merch.
What I didn’t know: The Karatsu tourism organisation are really, really excited about this and kinda went all out lmao. I was surprised at how much they did to attract YOI fans to the place.

Anyway, I bought a little Viktor with me, so here’s my photo report of the things we saw.

A/N: Clearly you guys like Joshua scenarios because I literally have 2 different ones from anons right now. I don’t mind at all, but please send in requests like the one I am posting this scenario for as they include more detail and I have an easier time writing them. Just telling me you want a fluff isn’t enough, and I may need to start combining requests too if this keeps happening.

 The first thing that entered your mind when you woke up was a very simple question; why the heck does my back hurt so much? Ah, that’s right, I am not alone in this bed… (wink wink)

 You turned onto your other side and the angelic face of your now-husband greeted you. It was extremely tempting to shake him awake, but you frankly did not have that type of strength right now and it was much more appealing to look at his god-like features. His adorably rounded nose, his cheekbones that were higher than your hopes had ever been, and his pouted lips that had been the cause lots of disheveled looks in the 5 years you had been together. All these things made up the man that you loved so dearly, and they only made you fall deeper in love with him.

 Joshua had been introduced to you by a mutual friend in high school. Neither of you had many friends in the small Los Angeles school where students mostly just went to school to sleep. It was a breath of fresh air to meet someone who wasn’t asking you for chemistry notes, though you both did teach each other some things about chemistry. (once again, wink wink) Clearly, your bond was strong enough to maintain a healthy long distance relationship as he had popped the question only one year ago.

 “Take a photo, it lasts longer.”Joshua’s throaty morning voice startled you, and his eyes peeked open. He let out a large yawn as his hand stroked your cheek, and you smiled at his goofy bed hair.

 “Well, Mr. Hong, I could say the same thing after what happened last night.”

 “Says you. ‘Oh, Joshua! Touch me more! Fast-” His voice was cut off by you pecking his lips and pinching his side.

 “If you ever wanna get laid again, I suggest you stop.” He gulped, and sat up in the pool of white sheets. Once again, he caught himself staring at you and thinking about how different things were now. You both had experienced new things last night, as each of you had promised that no matter how tempting things got, you promised to wait to have sex until your wedding night. Though most saw this as prudish, it only made your relationship stronger. You both had been looking forward to last nights events, and the anticipation that had built up since the promise was made only made it that much more special.

 “(Y/N), do you wanna order room service?” Thinking only for a second, you began nodding wildly. After all, a person can only handle a loud, growling stomach for so long.

 “I’ll get up to call, you just stay here.” You slowly got up and gasped when pain shot through your thighs. Joshua let out a small laugh, but the death glare you gave him caused the humor of the situation to be thrown out the window. By the time you actually managed to stand up, you were able to handle the short wobble to pick up your husbands shirt, which had been carelessly thrown across the room in a fit of lust, and put it on along with your abandoned pair of lace panties. It took a few minutes of searching to find the landline the hotel had so graciously offered, which had been hiding in the far corner of the large room.

 Quickly, you put in an order for breakfast and turned back towards your husband that had apparently dozed off in your absence. Carefully peeling back the covers was a pain, but it was worth it to keep Joshua asleep.You nestled yourself into his warm, bare chest and recollected your thoughts from the past few days.

 The ceremony was beautiful, and per Joshua’s request you had flown back to LA to get married at the church next to your old neighborhood. All of the family members that had been invited to the wedding had shown up, and the venue was breathtaking. Your dress was quite expensive, but Joshua’s Mother had insisted on taking you dress shopping and would not settle for anything but the most gorgeous gown they had. Sadly, the other boys of SEVENTEEN had to stay behind in Korea, but they had all dressed up in tuxes and participated in the ceremony over Skype. At one point, the screen had become disconnected and there had to be a quick break in the wedding so that someone could find a way for Joshua’s best friends to be a part of his big day. Now, after all that you went through for that day to arrive, you were able to lay down with your soulmate and just rest.

 You had been fighting to keep your eyes open when a sudden rapid knocking began on the thin wooden door.

 “Room service, for Mr. and Mrs. Hong!” You scurried up and went to grab real pajama pants so you could answer the door, waking up a dazed Joshua in the process. By the time you had opened the door, a small group of people were standing there with platters of breakfast foods in their hands. As they entered the room to set your order on the table, you said a quick thank you to God that there was a door separating the dining room and living room from the bedroom.

 On their way out, Joshua finally appeared from the bedroom, still shirtless but this time with thick gray sweatpants on his muscular legs. He gave you a quick peck and sat down at one of the chairs.

 “Oh (Y/N), you even remembered to get bacon! You sure do know how to make a dude happy!” His goofy smile appeared on his face and you both let out a few snorts of laughter before settling down to eat. There were waffles, bacon, fruit, coffee, the whole nine yards. Each delicious morsel made its way into your stomachs, and then you just sat there for a bit enjoying each others company.

 “Joshua? I know its kinda early to be talking about this, but I was wondering if you ever thought about having kids.” He let out a breath and sat back in his chair, delicately scooting closer to you.

 “Yeobo, I really do wanna have kids with you. I just really look forward to the idea of little mini-me’s and you’s running around. But, I don’t want to pressure you into anything like that so early. After all, we have a whole life to try for kids together now.”

 “I know, I just wanted to tell you… I trust you and I’m ready. I don’t care if we start today or a few years from now, I just wanted to say that I love you and am prepared to become a family.” His gaze softened, and he laced your fingers with yours as he pushed the now empty plate of food away from you.

 “Well then, Yeobo… wanna start now?”

*** Gotta leave that little cliffhanger just to be an asshole, lol. I hope you guys enjoyed my writing, as I did try very hard to make sure this was of the best quality for you guys. Thanks for reading, and I love y’all!xx
