This is Pistachio, though we usually call him Big Beef because he has very strong arms. He was embarrassed about his unusual mouth, but when he saw the beautiful smile of Tiny he felt better about himself, so I showed him this picture of how cute it makes him look when he’s sleeping! Now he is proud of his little blep space and wants to thank Tiny for sharing his beautiful smile. His brother, Hiccup (Little Beef), has three strong legs, and is also a fan of Tiny! My Beefs are sometimes naughty like tiny, but do not have wet marshmallow jaws, so I have to make sure my nail polish doesn’t look like beetles or berries…
Hello Pistachio (Big Beef)! 😀🐸😀
Tiny thinks you are beautiful everywhere! 😊 He likes your lovely long black toenails and your fashionable beard spikes!
Tiny thinks your mouth is just perfect and he sends you 237 big Tiny kissies! 🐸😊🐸
I just saw a Facebook video about animal cafes in Japan, like cat cafes and even owl cafes. How do you feel about these? I honestly wonder how well taken care of they are.
My general gut response is to start screaming about the lack of biosafety. Like, there’s a reason animals aren’t allowed in areas that do food preparation - I’m sure you could have a rigorous cleaning schedule and make religiously sure that people who do food prep are really carefully separated from the animal areas but… ehhh…. it just still sounds pretty gross.
From a behavior standpoint, well-done cat cafes can function like meet-the-cats shelter spaces and do help with adoptions. They need to be well run with attention to giving the cats breaks and making sure they’re not overwhelmed, but they can be good. I haven’t been to any and it’s kind of hard to parse that information from websites (especially non-american ones) so I can’t say either way if that’s something they do.
Owl cafes are a different matter - the short answer is no, why, stahp. They’re nocturnal predators with no domestication who have no inherent affiliative interest in humanity. Everything about it is wrong, stressful for the animals, and unless they’re restraining their feet and beak somehow just like seriously unsafe for the people who go there. They play into the whole anthropocentric “everything should love humanity so it’s okay for us to assume it’s always okay for us to want to cuddle it” crap that’s been really popular in Japan lately.
I need time to give this more thought…3am here but these are some quick notes.
Firstly, the whole MM shitshow has been poor taste from the outset. The sheep ‘hustler’ sure knows how to hustle! Everything about their relationship though has screamed fake to me and still does. Did I see love at Baftas? Not between them that’s for sure! I didn’t see love standing in the queue at the airport either. But Sam has made the effort to attend MM’s brother’s wedding and since he’s been hanging out with him and his girl and MM that would make sense. But there’s more to it than that. Sam HAD to be there for their shitty fake relationship to continue…the narrative just can’t end all of a sudden. That’s why I assumed the map was innuendo . He can’t NOT be at this wedding and yet turn up for Caitriona’s award. They know we would find out he wasn’t there. It’s disappointing he is because it means Sam is still stuck in a fake relationship for a while yet. If anything we will just see more Blind Items as a result. It’s not doing him any favours in that department that’s for sure…they can’t fake it well.
December shareholder vote wasn’t that long ago…I think it’s all about business 'integrity’ at the moment and creating the illusion that 'they tried’ with others but couldn’t fight the LOVE in the end. There is a business story that needs to be maintained a while longer IMO.
If Sam IS with MM (which I don’t think he is) then Sam and Caitriona truly are the lowest forms of human scum on the planet and here’s why…
1. Top of the list is their treatment of an amazing group of women through the use of their LOVE for each other to source money for their charities. There are some here I know of who have given and had trouble paying for their heating so…scum. Caitriona ending her 'When I was Young’ campaign with Sam building the hype and cashing in and Sam taking over the BAFTA dress auction…of course a generous Shipper bought it…scum.
2. Sitting back and watching Shatner harass and belittle these women yet keep them feed with their LOVE.Scum.
3. Attend a Women’s March and tweet pro woman’s issues yet behind the scenes manipulate these women with their LOVE…fucking fake scum.
4. Actively feed Shippers with dirty emojis (mostly oral sex…the birthday love OMG), Cree’s Heughan Talks leading up to the sudden appearance of MM at Bafta (smells like Lionsgate taking the helm), rings in videos (Christmas '15 and recent PCA thanks), 200K love, baby bump love, birthday love, GG love (including the Favourite Couples dig), Sam’s IG shrine, Matt Robert’s wedding anniversary love, Lemon and Hugs, 1am Fists (Sam’s), 'So Proud’, “wifey” wifey, Hubs, Hubby, charity crossover, Hantlers, OMG the list goes on and on…
Caitriona did not take her SO to GGs. She did not thank her SO at Bafta. Did that not say something? She can’t even celebrate these wonderful moments with him. That’s how tight the fucking reins are on these two at the moment. And if Caitriona can’t even freely enjoy such events with her SO, then Sam sure as hell has to attend a wedding in Georgia! For those who need to let go I completely understand. You feel there is only one explanation. But for me there is also only one explanation because I just cannot see these two people as low life, unsophisticated, cruel scum. I see love. That I’m Scottish Irish decent and stubborn as all hell of course has nothing to do with it! I’m gonna ship on through this fucked up storm motherfuckers.
“any time you tell somebody exactly what they have to do to prove to you that they are oppressed, you’re basically proving that they’re oppressed”
this is from one of the big ~luminaries of the d*scourse and i love it because i just recently saw someone make a very serious argument that people with psychic abilities are oppressed and it’s great to know that if i were to say “prove it” that would make it true, psychics would be officially proven oppressed. i never knew i had that kind of power, thank you tumblr
So I don’t know if anyone’s thought of this yet, but here’s an easy way to get bts a lot of views. I’m not certain it works 100%, but it’s more views than none.
First of create a playlist with 2 or 3 songs, like this:
Replaying one song on repeat sometimes doesn’t give it all the views, while playing a few in between will. And if you’re too lazy to create a playlist, just use mine, HERE.
Make sure you’ve got the repeat playlist button on.
Then push on the mute button on your keyboard. Youtube will still register as having the sound on, so the views will count. Now just keep your laptop/computer/tablet running all night and generate views while you’re sleeping. Just make sure you’ve got your laptop/tablet on a charger, or it’ll run out of battery long before you wake up.
This one time in my religion class my teacher was going on about how the story of Adam and Eve was symbolic of how people should stay away from evil and then she says that snakes are all evil and I stand up like "bro I'm a snake. Do I look evil to you? Yo I bet there are fifteen other slytherins here right now, wanna go?" In my head of course because I'm shy af but I did make sure to glare at her Even More and I slipped in several references to my house in my final paper.
A cliff note version of Reimu’s “canon” DPOE timeline. I’ll expand on things, write drabbles, move things around, ect. eventually, but with all the info out here we go kids, the: “How the Hell Did Reimu End Up In This Mess In the First Place ???”
– Gensokyo is a land of Fantasy. A “Paradise for Both Humans and Youkai", a realm which does not really exist, at least not in a logical way humans can truly comprehend. It is not unlike Wonderland, a separate realm connected to this world ( the Outside World, the real world, the world of humans, OUR world ) and can only be entered by very specific means. – Reimu Hakurei is the Shrine Maiden of this land, and she will do anything to protect it. For it is her job to maintain its delicate balance. The Outside World and their going ons is NOT her problem, she is GENSOKYO’S shrine maiden first and foremost. – But still, Gensokyo is reliant on the continued existence of the world outside it’s Illusionary Boundary; Fantasy can’t exist without Reality; if the world outside where to be destroyed, Gensokyo would fall with it. – Yukari Yakumo ( @deadlyfantasia) is a powerful Youkai Sage which watches over Gensokyo and protects its boundaries. She is too a frequent traveler of the Outside World, and keeps her eye on the events which take place there. She found out rather quickly about the chaos of the human’s world ending, a apocalypse started by a certain strange bear @desbearer (# thanks based monokuma) and as soon as the youkai figured out this wasn’t simply a normal human war ( she had seen plenty of those before after all ) as soon as she realized the Outside World was at the threat of being completely destroyed: she took action. For she would NOT let Gensokyo fall because the humans outside of it decided to all up and die. – So, she came up with a plan. A mission for Gensokyo’s shrine maiden, the one person Yukari KNEW she could count on in a situation like this: Go outside of Gensokyo, fight with the humans who live there, HELP THEM, help the Outside World STABILIZE, help humanity not get WIPED OUT. If she could do that, Gensokyo would be SAVED. In the meantime, Yukari would stay within Gensokyo and help defend / protect it ( strengthen the boundaries, work her powerful magic to try to keep Gensokyo as functional as possible while the whole endeavor sorted itself out ) Confident the Red-White would surely be of help to the humans dealing with the chaos outside. – Reimu joins up with Concordia ( both out of Yukari’s insistence and her own morals ) and helps them fight back, helps them in anyway she can. Despite herself, she makes friends. ( Adrien @mcncheri and Kirigiri @kyoukokiwigiri in particular ) and despite herself she grows to care for them. ( “Maybe once this is over I can show them Gensokyo… I just need to help them, save their home just like how I’m working to save my own” ) – She eventually gets a tattoo of the cause, ( on her mid back, between her shoulder blades ) and soon enough Reimu becomes as wholeheartedly invested in Concordia’s success as she is in her personal mission to help secure Gensokyo’s safety. – Cue Monokuma fucking everything up and throwing them into Murder Disney – Cue 6 chapters worth of bs she had to go through – And once she’s out, she finds out that the Outside World ( for better or for worse ) is stable enough that Gensokyo is no longer in any danger of ceasing to exist.She can go home, she can put all this behind her ( she can try to ignore the voice in the back of her head telling her she is just running away. What would her friends think if she just ran back home and left their world in ruins ruled by a tyrant and a deranged self proclaimed queen ? ) – But… her job isn’t to PROTECT the Outside World is it ? She is GENOKSYO’S shrine maiden, everything she has done and will continue to do is for the sake of her HOME, for the place she misses with all her heart. For Reimu Hakurei above all other things has and will always be, The Shrine Maiden of Paradise.
It's crazy. I had a disagreement with someone about the Pewdiepie drama where I said "Sure you can not like what he said, and Disney and YouTube has all in their right to drop him... But I dont like how the media is lying about him and totally twisting the situation to be far worst." After I said that, they all started to say I was anti-semitic and a Nazi sympathizer... like... wtf?!?! I've never met people who actually acted so irrational like that
WELCOME TO TUMBLR!
I was already called a -racist -antisemitic -nazi -Islamophobic (which doesn’t make any sense since i’m half muslim)
i was thinking about the scene where Magnus gives Alec back his bow & quiver &is all 'idk how to use these' & i was thinking that Magnus is old af he definitely has been around since the bow &arrow was a commonly used weapon & i know he primarily uses magic but what if he's still trained with weapons? Like, can you imagine how many cute as heck archery competitions Malec would have if Magnus was good with a bow, they would get so competitive and flirty omg i didnt know i needed that til now
Wow, thanks, Anon, for making me all emo again. Because duh…. if this is not canon, I don’t know what is. Let’s be real, Magnus lived for centuries, so of course he knows how to use a bow. I am also pretty sure that, even though he might use magic when it comes to fighting on the battle field and all, he knows how to use other weapons as all. I mean, just look at him, being all bad ass, fierce eyes and body strained, but on the other hand those fluid movements? The elegant way when being deadly precise with that weapon of his choice?
Damn, give me bamf!Magnus all the time. The content I am here for.
But well, yeah, Magnus again trying to convince Alec that he has no idea how to use that bow like he did when they both played pool? So Alec leaning in, his chest against Magnus’ back, warm breath caressing Magnus’ ear while he helps Magnus to steady his posture and teach him how to hold that bow. While Magnus is trying very hard not to smile that fondly smile. Or grab Alec and throw him on the ground and kiss him senseless.
So he really tries to put on an unfazed expression, playing the oh so eager student who just wants to do it right. When Magnus finally shots that arrow and it hits right into the yellow ring. “Not that bad.”
Alec just stares, arms crossed. He shakes his head. “You did it again.” He tries to sound grimmly but Magnus sees that he is fighting back a grin.
“What are you talking about, my dear, Alexander?”
Alec huffs. “Shut up. I am going to get you another bow and then I wil teach you how to shot an arrow.”
Magnus beams. “Oh, Alexander. I didn’t know that you can play dirty.” He wiggles his brows.
Alec tilts his head. “You know, you are going to lose against me, right?”
Magnus’ lips curl into a sly smile. “Wanna bet?”
Alec rolls his eyes but he laughs. “Game on.”
Which leads to these two competitive shits shooting arrows until dawn comes. Neither wanna lose or declare defeat. Not until Magnus may or may not start to get Alec distracted with accidentally touching his arm and leaning into him and placing a soft kiss onto his neck. Alec may or may not miss but he grabs Magnus by his wrist and may or may not kiss him in the middle of the archery field. After some passionate kisses, they both agree to continue this tomorrow.
“I am still better at this, you know?” Alec says with so much pride and a gleeful smirk while tugging Magnus back into the institute.
Magnus chuckles. “Whatever you say, darling.”
Oh, he will teach that cheeky nephilim a lesson. Later. Tonight. In the bedroom. And Alec will be begging. This is gonna be so much fun. Magnus grins while entwining this fingers with Alec’s. Alexander Gideon Lightwood. The best thing that ever happened to him.
So I've pretty much always been interested in astronomy, but more casually than anything. I've been talking to this guy for 9 months now and last time I knew he wanted to go to college to become a space engineer and actually wants to maybe go into space one day. Ever since we became friends I've become more and more interested in it. I'd probably never go into a space career though because I'm more interested in pursuing art. I think it's just cool how meeting someone can change your interests.
For sure!! A person you admire and like can have a huge influence on your interests! Just make sure it’s always an interest you’re genuine about!
Who do you want to pilot the black lion next season?
it’s a tie between keith and allura!
im pretty sure the reason why keith is gonna pilot the black lion is not only bc of shiro–but bc it’s also like a reference to old voltron (80s keith piloted the black lion while 80s shiro piloted the blue lion before he got “injured”) it’d be nice to see keith try to take shiro’s place and i wanna see him kind of…be overwhelmed with this position bc being a leader–you have to take a lot of responsibilities at hand and i wanna see how keith will react to it
hell maybe he could make a great black paladin, he’s gotten a lot of character development so far but i feel like he needs to work a little bit more with his emotions and bonding MORE with the team
though a part of me doesn’t want him to pilot black bc he already has a strong bond with red and it’s gonna be hard to break away from that you know???
if all else fails and keith can’t/doesn’t want to pilot the black lion–then all options go to allura.
i have a feeling she’ll pilot the black lion temporarly though, i don’t want her to be downgraded to a lion forever–SHE HAS A COOL DEATH CASTLE THAT’S BETTER TBH but black needs a natural leader and allura fits that completely.
in old voltron, when 80s shiro “died”, princess fala (80s allura) decided to take his place to pilot the blue lion–i hope allura does the same but doesn’t take the position permanently!
Do you think JB will keep his endgame ? Sometimes I don't know anymore :(
No I don’t. Bokenkmap has said on more than one occasion that he never changes his end game. In fact, he starts with the end game when he creates a story and writes around that. How he gets to his final destination can be changed, but not the end game itself. For example, Tom has a bigger role than originally intended but he is not part of the end game since he was supposed to have been killed in S1. And I take solace in that.
Also JB has said he has to sell NBC on his end game to make sure they approve it (as an aside, I am sure he has already). So you know the end game is not a warm and fuzzy Red is Liz’s dad. It is something else entirely. Here was my speculation written at the end of 04 x 08:
do you have any suggestions for how to make sure people use your pronouns + correcting them, when you're nonverbal most of the time? because i recently came out and when people call me she/her or my birthname i struggle to correct them because i can't really talk to anyone but my close family and gf and when im anxious (like when talking about pronouns) talking becomes so much harder :/ and people tell me to correct them if they get it wrong but i cant
wear a pronoun pin!!! they are easy to make, or u can buy them!!!
or, you can write “my pronouns are _______ and my name is _________” on your hand
or (i have a shirt like this so yes they do exist) get a shirt that says your pronouns!!!! this is a little risky bc u cant really…. take ur shirt off depending on the situation you are in (for example, at a church or mosque or temple), but if you are confident and feel safe, go for it!!!
I am not blaming JK, I am blaming BIGHIT for not balancing everything. Not only with Jin but also with J-Hope for Spring Day
well people are always about saying bts talk about their line distributions to make sure everyone’s okay with it - or at least that was the excuse people were saying to me last week when i was being a bitter hoseok stan (rip). i’d honestly just like to know the process they go about when deciding lines, since lines will undoubtedly indicate screen time. usually the more lines you have, the more screen time you get, so really i’d just be curious to find out how they go about dividing distributions
okay but what sliders do you and sophia use to get those realistic boobs? cause they just make the sims' bodies look sooo good!!
lmfaoooo omg i wish i knew the secrets of sophia’s slider magic but sadly i’m a peasant, as for scout she actually doesn’t use any boob sliders except the basic game one. but the reason her boobbbies look so good in that vday post is bc of this magnificent dresss, idk how but it does gr8t things <3 and toby has smol bobbies so im sure you werent speaking of her sarry toby
Huhu Anon, right now I’m pretty much swamped with other drawing project so I don’t have any time to draw kyouhaba.
When it comes to them I think they are cute and I totally see why people ship them but it’s not a strong ship for me. Tbh next to Iwaoi I don’t have any strong other ships but I do have other pairings I like. When it comes to Kyouhaba I’m yet not so sure how much I like it. I love both characters individually and I like their dynamic together, I love them as teammates, rivals, friends and I like to think they have some kind of bond. I also like some fanart of them (even the shipping ones) and think it’s cute but I’m not so sure how much I really see them being involved romantically. Another problem I have is that I don’t really have own hcs or stories for them which makes it harder for me to draw them.
So to stop here and don’t let this get too long: I can’t promise you anything, maybe I will draw them…maybe not..but if I would ever find the time and inspiration to draw them I would draw them more casual and not very romantic
