but i wanted to try something new okay

Okay, new cosplay rule:

I have to be a fan of something or want to cosplay it for at least a month before I decide to make the costume

and

I won’t decide on any costumes shorter than a month out from the con (except in special circumstances, like surprise guest announcements or groups getting organized, and only when I know I have time to throw it together quickly)

Riley: Ever since the day after Cultural Day, when you found out you might have a new ancestry, I started reading about it. Because I love you. And I would always want to know who you are. Merry Christmas, Farkle. Happy Hannekuh. Happy everything.

Smackle: Ever since I’ve known you, you’ve never stopped trying to put yourself back together. I wanted to get you something to let you know that you’ve done a great job, and it’s okay to work on something else.

Zay: “A young lady speaks in a gentle tone and never raises her voice.” Your voice is my favorite thing about you—that’s why i crossed all these things out. That’s why I changed them to the funny things you do that I like. Because I know you’re working on stuff. But I never want you to forget who you are. What makes you wonderful.

Auggie: You gave Maya back to her family. Even though it was hard for you, and you wanted to keep her for yourself. You gave her the gift that would make her truly happy. I don’t have to [tell her]. She already knows.

Me:

The thing I don’t get about cultural appropriation is how people mistake diffusion for appropriation. Like, cultures spread because people communicate. They mix with other cultures and become something different and new that anyone can enjoy, because that’s what’s happened since civilization began and that’s what will continue happening. 

And yet…people somehow think it’s okay to “police” culture? Like, for example, because a person’s white, they suddenly can’t enjoy eating Mexican food? I just don’t understand. It’s not like a culture is going to be destroyed just because a little bit of that culture mixes with another one and someone from a completely different culture from both likes it and wants to try it. 

There’s a line between cultural appropriation and diffusion. It’s not even a fine line- it’s pretty easy to tell which is which. But people still want to separate cultures like the last few hundred years of mixing and blending haven’t happened. My question is, why? 

okay holy shit my situation has changed and i am in desperate need of like, $30 dollars. i’m working my ass off and dealing with a parent that wants to try and hurt me mentally and financially every step of the way. i’m so sorry i keep asking but this is something new that’s come up and i’m absolutely furious but also quite desperate

cash.me has been acting odd lately but it’s $dia333 and payal is at toobadelectra@gmail.com , thank you to anyone in advance , thank you.

okay but imagine this:

you’re just a normal guy when suddenly maybe you try some new fish oil pills because you’ve heard that they’re good for you

suddenly, something crazy happens and you get encased in some rock and you know you should be dead but you’re somehow alive and somehow that’s worse. you live (although that’s not really how to describe living) like that for eternity because time doesn’t exist anymore, hearing your sister come and go, talking to you even though she thinks you can’t hear and that’s not even the worse of it because you hear her hate people and kill people that you realize might be just like you.

you’re scared.

you’re scared of what happened to you, you’re scared of what’s happening to you, and you’re scared of what might happen to you.

suddenly, there’s many voices, scientific speak that you don’t really understand but you understand that it’s all about you .

suddenly, there’s just one voice- not talking to you like your sister or all these people whose faces you’ve never seen have been for as long as you’ve been imprisoned, but really talking to you.

“Hi,” she says. “I’m Jemma Simmons and I’m from SHIELD.”

She pauses and you hope she hasn’t gone away.

“And I’m here to help you.”

Here to help you.

“I know this is all frightening. But I have friends who have gone through this.”



You’re thinking about how you hope your sister hasn’t hurt them

when

finally you feel something.

this whole time you’ve been hearing the outside world, encased in a stone prison

,

but now finally you feel something.


”but it’s okay. I’m here. We can get through this together.” The kind voice coming from a woman you’ve never seen named Jemma Simmons who you’ve never heard of has shown you so much kindness and humanity and hope that–



suddenly, you break. and you feel her helping to take the pieces off, like she promised you.



suddenly, there’s brightness, and it’s hard to see but the point is you can

see

, and you see her face.



your voice is hoarse and you can barely find the words to say thank you, but you do.



you are so very thankful to this woman you’ve now met. to Jemma Simmons.



suddenly, a bag is place over her head and she’s taken away and you can’t do anything to help this woman who helped you. you can only watch and croak her name as she’s dragged away.



suddenly, you’re left with these nameless people in hazmat suits who look at you with a gleam in their eyes, and not the kindness you saw in hers.



you’re terrified.


you’re terrified of what happened to you, you’re terrified of what happened to Jemma, and you’re terrified of what’s going to happen to you.

You wish you never broke free.

I did it! Fanart of Guang Hong Ji. I wanted to try something new and new brushes. In the end I don’t like so much how it turned out. It is a 50%50 fail - but I had also fun and understood things so it’s okay. If you see your error you can become better :D!!

@yukatagirl said: Pokémon Emerald?~

(I was gonna just answer through the ask but tumblr would resize and destroy the image)

put a video game in my ask (and I’ll try to doodle for the ones I’m familiar with)

never played | want to play | terrible | boring | okay | good | great | a favorite

So I’ve sunk probably 300+ hours into Sapphire but never played Emerald - there’s some weird personal reasons as to why but that’s not important right now.

Anyway I love Hoenn a LOT

A/N: okay it took me a lot longer than an hour to get this done. i kept getting distracted lmao


The moment Sam retired to his bedroom for the night was when Dean rose from his chair at the table and walked around until he was behind you, hands on your shoulders and slowly pushing back your jacket. His fingers dug into your skin, massaging your shoulders. 

Your eyes fluttered shut as your head hung low, letting Dean do as he pleased. “What are you doing?” you murmured.

His lips pressed against your neck gently. “I want to try something new. You up for it?”

So after some of the hype cooled down bc AMAZING episode there’s still something that bugged me a freaking lot.

Yuri’s behavior anyone??????? Okay I get he is 15 and his new friend Otabek Altin says he recognized in his eyes his resolve, so we get he’s a spirited kid that was just born to fight to get the things he wants. Then again he was super aggressive towards Victor in the scene they shared, but something else happened toooooooo!!! Victor was also aggressive there.

Okay what I’m trying to explain here bc one-sided!YuYuu shipper here lol is that Yuri was challenging Victor and his relationship with Yuuri because he likes, likes Yuuri. I KNOW IT’S CRAZY BUT HEAR ME OUT.

First we have this.

Yuri is clearly bitter about the situation involving Victor and Yuuri. And here I was like… yeah he’s bitter because he also wanted to get Victor’s attention.

Victor asks him this then. And I was like Yeah Yuri wanted to win against this man bc hello? Russia’s hero???? Yuri of course denies it and is like ‘Don’t be so full of yourself’. We can only presume what the hell is this kid actually thinking bc he’s all serious telling Victor ‘Don’t be so full of yourself’. If Yuri admires him (I think he does) I don’t think he’d admit that anytime soon– 

NEXT HOWEVER IS THE IMPORTANT PART. THIS HAPPENS.

Victor loses his composure towards Yuri for the first time. Yuri expresses his discontent towards Victor’s presence and the reasons right now can only be interpreted oñhfioehaoigg (we so need another Yurio’s POV).

HOWEVER THINGS ESCALATE QUICKLY FROM THERE ON.

Yuri tells Victor the ring, the symbol of his union (engagement cough) with Yuuri is garbage, practically that it is worthless and he couldn’t give a shit about it, that he will WIN just to prove how incompetent Victor (the owner) is. AND THE WAY HIS EYES FLICKER WITH EMOTION AND RESOLVE AS HE SAYS THIS, SO MUCH FIGHTING SPIRIT THERE.

!!!!!

If Yuri wins, then there’s no wedding cos no gold medal for Yuuri. If he wins, he is gonna show Yuuri and everyone how incompetent Victor is. AND THE WAY VICTOR LOOKS AT THIS CHALLENGE AS HE STARES DOWN AT YURI.

SO MANY THINGS HAPPENING HERE.

Then Yuri leaves and Victor reflects on a bit of what happened there. He says that if he had stayed in Russia as a competitor, Yuri wouldn’t be this motivated to fight. Here we can only guess what he’s talking about. BUT THE IMPORTANT PART IS THIS ONE: Yuuri you may not realize this

I THINK HE IS TALKING ABOUT YURI. YURI ALSO GOT THE WORDS ‘LIFE’ AND ‘LOVE’ FROM YUURI.

Yuri was openly aggressive towards Victor. He could have gone to bother Yuuri and tell him he should be focusing on trying to win instead of doing stupid shit or anything rude like that BUT as we saw in the past chapter, Yuri is in good terms with Yuuri. HE WENT TO LOOK FOR HIM AND CHEER HIM UP AFTER REMEMBERING SOMETHING YUURI WANTED TO DO WITH VICTOR AND GAVE HIM HIS PRECIOUS PIROZHKI WITH KATSUDON INSIDE AND HE ALSO KNEW HIS BDAY WAS CLOSE AND EVEN WAS FEELING FRUSTRATED WHEN YUURI WAS FAILING AT HIS FREE PROGRAM.

Instead of going to find Yuuri and make his war declaration, he went to Victor and was the bitter 15 y.o. version of the person he is right now and I think it’s because he likes Yuuri ;;;;;;

But I can only guess I just needed to vent out bc this scene really bugs me a lot and I know things can be missed in translation BUT I NEED TO KNOW RIGHT NOW WHAT THE HELL and yeah– bye–

hi dan, i know you’re out there, so if you’re reading this — it’s okay. it’s okay for you to try new styles, it’s okay for you to keep your hair curly if that’s what you want to do, it’s totally fine for you to paint your nails if you’re comfortable in doing so and IT’S TOTALLY FINE IF YOU DECIDE NOT TO DO IT; and it is also okay if you choose not to upload like cute little meaningless videos on your channel because you want to keep your audience, that’s your choice because it’s your channel; i just wanted to make sure that you know it’s totally fine for you to express yourself, to be you, as long as you’re comfortable in your own skin. we’re with you.

Michael & Lingerie

This was requested by an Anon! <3 I hope you all enjoy this!

You held the fabric up in the air, contemplating whether you should even wear it.  Lingerie wasn’t something that you wore.  You thought you would try something new for Michael.  Gabriel assured you that Michael would love it, but you were worried.  You never saw yourself wearing something like this.  It wasn’t that you were unattractive, you just never liked the idea of lingerie too much.

“[Y/N], are you alright,” Michael asked from the other side of the bathroom door.  “You’ve been in there for awhile.  I just want to make sure you’re okay.”

“Yeah, I’m fine,” you replied in a slightly shaky voice.  “I’ll be right out.”

Michael backed away from the door, padding back over to the bed.  The archangel looked up when he heard the bathroom door finally open.  His eyes grew wide at the sight of your beautiful figure.  The way the lingerie fit just right, showing your curves off perfectly.  

“[Y/N],” Michael whispered, approaching you rather quickly.  “You look amazing.   I didn’t take you for a lingerie type.”  A small smirk unfolded onto his lips as he scanned his eyes up and down your body.  His hands rubbed your arms up and down in slow motions.

“Thanks,” you replied, a nervous laugh leaving your lips.  “Gabriel helped me pick it out.  He said you would like it.”

“Well he must know me pretty well,” Michael mused, a playful grin dancing on his lips.  “You look beautiful all the time [Y/N], lingerie or not.  I never understood the fascination with lingerie.  It always ends up on the floor.”

“I think I’m supposed to show you what it’s all about,” you noted with a smirk of your own.  

It wasn’t as dreadful as you thought it was going to be.  Michael enjoyed himself, and you did too.  You would have to thank Gabriel some time.

Lyanna Baratheon

A/N: Okay guys, I’m trying something new. This is how each of the Lannister’s feel about Cersei and Robert’s legitimate child Lyanna. I think I’m going to do how the houses feel next and then transfer into a story. Let me know what you guys think!

i'm trying to get over my transphobia, it's something i was born with as a cis person. i admit i was trying to make myself feel better about it and i shouldn't, it's not something i should feel 'proud' of, and that was really shitty of me. i'm really new to the topic of being transgender and i mess up a lot. i'm sorry. (i know you're not going to forgive me and you shouldn't (i'd rather you didn't) but i just want to say it anyway)

ummm…… okay

Wow! I drew something!

Ahh, I’ve been trying out new styles lately. This is one of them, and one I want to stick to more. I honestly like how it looks on paper better…but, here’s Samekichi and Wadanohara! AKA, my babies.

~ Okay to tag as kin, but only tag Samekichi as kin if I know you!

we’re not something, but we’re not nothing. | for punkassaris / audreynoah

since it’s canon that Jason tries to blame things on Tim I feel like Damian would use the same tactic and they both would try to blame things on Tim but like really mundane happenings (like a broken cup or Titus chewing up Bruce’s shoes) 

and then they both try to blame him for something at the same time and how would Tim manage to accidentally start a fire in the cave  while also spreading apple pie crumbs all over the living room’s couch when he was actually sleeping in his WE office working with Bruce on new marketing strategies aka sleeping jk jk

(and that’s when Jason and Damian realize they have to coordinate better okay you take Tuesdays and Thursdays and I want the weekend)
