but who really gives a shit

Fics I Didn’t Know I Needed - March 23,2017

Every now and then, I get in a bit of a spell where I lack motivation and inspiration to write.  When I get into the mindset that nothing I write is good enough/just plain shit, I just like to read, refuel my brain with new ideas and when I read a really good fic that gives me that new inspiration and help me continue the fics in my drafts, I feel so much better about my writing.  I’ve decided that every time I get in this funk, I’m going to share my list of fics that help me get out of it, help me continue my stories and give me new kinds of ideas.  These fics and the people who wrote them are AMAZING and shouldn’t go unnoticed in my eyes, so I’m going to share them.  And to anyone I feature in this post, thank you for your dedication and talents.  You’ve helped me write when I’m down, out of it, or just plain bored with your works.  

Without further ado, here my first ever, “Fics I Didn’t Know I Needed”.

Innocent Doctor (Spencer Reid) by @crimindsaspe - Holy shit, this one’s good.  I’ve always liked the idea of Dom!Spencer, and this is just perfect.  The way you describe how he’s different around the team versus the reader is just…  Bravo Shannon.  Bravo.  This was such a turn on (that sounds creepy oops), I can’t wait for more chapters. Part Two

Tale As Old As Time Ch 1: Provincial Life (Spencer Reid) by @beautiful-bau-beau - This is so beautifully written, and I adore the fact that you’re doing a take on the fairytale.  I’m always thinking about putting the characters in another story/situation, but nothing like this.  Absolutely wonderful.  I’m really looking forward to this one!

Long Way Down (Spencer Reid) by @bookofreid - This was equally sad and charming.  The way it’s written gave me chills.  Just some absolutely wonderful writing, the kind of writing anyone would aspire to accomplish.  It’s just plain beautiful.

Dishwasher Safe (Spencer Reid) by @criminal-minds-fanfiction - I read this way back when it was first posted, and I’ve gone back to it and reread it a few times because that’s just how much I love it.  Flustered Spencer is the cutest and Sub!Spencer is everything.  So hot and so good omg.

Penelope and Derek’s Matchmaking Service (Spencer Reid) by @huh-imagine-that - This one is also a bit older, but can I just say, cuteness overload!!!  It’s another one I go back to and just enjoy to read every time.  Just a fluffy little fic for when you’re down, it really helps bring you up!

The Ultimate Test (Spencer Reid) by @hanny-bananny - Oh.  My.  Gosh.  Just so beautiful.  The flow of this is wonderful and amazing.  I wrote one similar to this, but mine I feel hardly compares to yours.  This is the epitome of a beautiful disaster, because it’s sad but the way you wrote it is just too marvelous.  Well done.

Secrets and Lies (Spencer Reid) by @criminal-minds-fanfiction - This is what a call a fan fic.  The idea is new, the story is told incredibly and it’s definitely something you’d go back again and again to binge read.  Scandalous, cute, angsty.  It’s a little bit of everything.  **Bonus:  Help! Not Just Anybody is a continuation, which Cherry has just finished, and binge reading this series has become a regular thing for me.  So, so good.

Becoming Real (Spencer Reid x Luke Alvez) by @dontshootmespence - This one will hit you right in the fucking feels if you’re all about fluffy Spence fics.  Even if you’re not a huge fan of the ship, this is still just plain amazing and 100% worth the read.  I can never get enough of your work, I come back to SO many of your fics, but this one is sooo so good.  Kudos.

So there you have it.  This was the first installment of “Fics I Didn’t Know I Needed”.  These won’t come often, but every time I read a good one or I just can’t get words down or I’m just like ‘hey, I should tell someone about this,’ I’m going to add them to my list.  I highly recommend everyone read all of these and if you aren’t already, follow everyone mentioned because they are all beautiful human beings and they write some amazing things and they all fucking deserve it.  

And once again to anyone mentioned, thanks for writing and being awesome inspiration.  It’s fics like these that make it easier to write!

waterboulders  asked:

TJ you seem to give a lot of legitimacy to trump. It almost sounds like you like him. I've never respected the man. Trump is not a politician, he's a celebrity assclown who enjoys insulting and talking shit about people. He lacks any degree of civility or respect for anyone. Don't you care about civility in government?

Not really. I think civility is a farce. I’m interested in policy, not superficial factors like decorum.

📢LISTEN 📢 UP📢 ARMYS📢 HERE ARE 23 UNDERRATED  RAP MONSTER TRACKS THAT YOU SHOULD ABSOLUTELY CHECK OUT

*there are way more namjoon tracks but this list was getting too long* *just peep his mixtape and soundcloud*

1. Rap Monster by Rap Monster

This is Namjoon’s take on “look at me now” by Chris Brown and a.k.a the first ever song to be represented by Bangtan Sonyeondan as it was the first ever track on BTS’s official soundcloud.

This is an introduction to Rap Monster as an artist and a lit track. This shit was a bop!


2. Too much by Rap Monster

This song is extremely meaningful and Namjoon’s voice sounds breathtaking. This was Namjoon’s reflection of the B-free incident. He mentions how he shouldn’t take B-free’s hate to his heart and not to over think criticism. In the beginning he sounds really hurt but omg towards the end he is going hard, and it gives me old school rap vibes.

3. Unpack your bags by Rap Monster

This song is a huge middle finger to the underground rap community who looks down on idol rappers. This was a collab with the show 4 things where he mentions how hard it was him to pursue hip hop. He mentioned 4 struggles he faced in the industry. Check out the episode, the show also shows how he interacts with his producers and Bang PDnim and this was where the really famous “ Solo, or Bangtan” moment was born. We really got to know Namjoon as an artist personally and his teenage days.This is complimented with a really cute music video.

4. P.D.D (Please Don’t Die) by Rap Monster

This is a track where he collabed with Warren G  prior to his mixtape in L.A and this gives me chills because of that prominent West Coast feel. Check out the MV and the naver behind the scenes.

5. Something by Rap Monster (a.k.a my all time favourite song I don’t know why tbh)

HOLY SHIT THIS SONG TAKES ME WAY BACK! I feel as if nowadays the producers really autotune Namjoon’s singing voice and make it really shaky but hear you can prominently really hear his singing skills and It is such a sexy love song. It really gives your romantic feels and reflects on a sad teenage love story.

6. Where u At by Rap Monster


THIS IS SUCH A MEANINGFUL SONG. 

Here we have high school Namjoon talking about how school has gotten the best of him. In a culture where education and status are everything, he talks about letting his parents down and confessing to his relatives about his future in Hip-Hop. Its an extremely relatable track where you think about where you want to head in the future.

7. Favourite Girl by Rap Monster

This is such a cute fuckboy song omg Namjoon’s voice is so cute in this. Young love amirite.

But I have a secret meme with this song. In 6th grade I accidentally blasted this and my teacher started singing along to it since the chorus is in english and ever since my friends have been taunting me with this song.

8. Monterlude by Rap Monster

The instrumental to this was included in the Skool Luv Affair album. This is in english and this is such a cute love song. Namjoon would spoil his girlfriend omg.

9. Promethus by Yankie feat Rap Monster

Namjoon teamed up with some popular K-rappers and his verse in this made my pussy drop BUT EVERYONE IN THIS SONG DID SO AMAZING THIS IS SUCH A TURNT SONG I WAS JAMMING TOO HARD

This song is based off of the seven sins and Namjoon plays lust..ofc.

He uses some sick korean wordplay.


10. Bucku Bucku by MFBTY feat Rap Monster

MFBTY are already korean hip hop legends and the fact that such “old” and wise rappers decided to have Namjoon feature is an honor. 

He also had a little role in another one of their mvs here

11.   PRIMARY (프라이머리) - U (Feat. Kwon Jin Ah 권진아, Rap Monster 랩

This song is really relaxing and I love Primary’s beats and Kwon Jin Ah’s soothing voice, But Namjoon’s soothing rap was so sexy. It was just so hot omg.

12. Awakening by Rap Monster from his mixtape

This song was from his mixtape which you absolutely need to check out and I suggest you see his other music videos such as the legendary Do You  and Joke.

This song was extremely powerful and eye opening. Just ready the lyrics and you will know why.

“In  the moment of my failure
will someone hold my hand?
in the moment when I come down from the stage
will that person be next to me?
just tell me that I can survive
in this cold world, just feel my vibe
every night inside me I quietly fight with myself
my heart pounds, my colleagues stab me in the back
while saying that I became a moron after joining a company
yeah fuck you I’m an idol, yeah yeah I’m an idol
at one time I hated it but now I love to get that title”

13. I believe by Rap Monster

Extremely uplifting and it brings you a huge amount of self-confidence, its a self-loving song and its a self reminder to always believe in yourself no matter how much you fall. Also has a little appearance from Jimin.

14. God Rap By Rap Monster

This song talks about Namjoon being an athiest but also has a message for believers. It talks about controlling your own life and to be your own idol. It says how you have the power of god in you and how you are extraordinary.

15. Throw Away by Rap Monster

HOLY CRAP THIS SONG IS EXTREMELY LIT
THIS IS SUCH A BOP
OMG THIS ALWAYS HAS ME JUMPING 
CHECK OUT THE LIVE TOO

“got an automatic dick”

16. Rush by Rap Monster feat Krizz Kaliko also from his mixtape

Funny story this is how they got together and created this lit korean meets american rap track.

Namjoon goes really hard in this, check it out!

17. Drifting by Rap Monster also from his Mixtape

This song has a theme that goes with “Reflection” and “Always”, He says how his thoughts are drifting and how feels lost (almost like the track lost in wings). Its put you in a trance where you, yourself starts to think about where you are in life and what purpose you have. 

18. Life by Rap Monster from his mixtape

This song got me tripping because Namjoon is a lyrical genius. The amount of questions this song got me saying is insane. Just read.

“ the little me inside myself was always lonely
why is there no opposite word of loneliness?
could it be because people, until they die, have no moments of not being lonely?
it’s necessary to seek a moment to be alone
yeah that’s a life
we live inside danger
through the reward that makes us able to see this beautiful world “


were we born to die, were we born to live
are we living to die, or are we dying to live
the nametag with my name on it, is that my life?
or is it death

who knows…

life, fall in love
life receives injuries from us and
is lonely because of the wind and
we wanna be right
but always wrong
were we born to be wrong?
is life something like that?
(in the end, for our whole lives we don’t know what tomorrow will be)”

19. Monster by Rap Monster from his mixtape

“R TO THE M IMMA MOTHERFUCKING MONSTER”


20. Joke. (you should probably know this)

I really did’nt want to include this because his 2 most famous tracks are Do you and Joke and I wanted to keep this list to the underrated but tbvh I was really surprised when I figured out that people don’t know this track.

HONESTLY IF YOU TELL ME NAMJOON DOESNT HAVE RAP FLOW OR CANT RAP FAST WATCH THIS FUCKING VIDEO>

In this track he said how he is mocking rappers who only have good flow but no sense of meaningful lyrics. 

The lyrics in this song make no sense but the rap flow is too damn good. WHEN WATCHING THIS YOU WILL BE LIKE HONEY PLEASE BREATHE. HE RAPS SO FAST.

PLEASE LISTEN TO THIS MASTERPIECE> HE GOES SO HARD HE TRUELY IS A MONSTER

21. DO YOU BY RAP MONSTER ( (you should also probably know this)

In this track he talks about how at a young age society tells us what to be, how to look, what to wear, how to behave. He says fuck whatever they say and just do you.

I heard that fantastic four was shit but Namjoon got a chance to do a song for a movie which is a big deal for bangtan so WHOO


23. Illest Bitch

A really cute confession from Namjoon going through Puberty

badass, accomplished, intelligent leader Lance who is strong in his own right and doesn’t need to be coddled and doesn’t take shit from others AND PEOPLE ACTUALLY LISTEN TO HIM AND RESPECT HIM

the no bullshit guide to getting your shit together: for the lazy student

Let’s be honest: time management and organization? They’re really hard. Sure, at first you might feel like you’ve gotten the hang of them, that you’re in control of your life. But how often have you fallen off the wagon? Procrastinated on one thing and the next moment, you’re behind in all your classes? I know that sometimes laziness feels like a part of who you are, but honestly, fuck that. Do you really want to give up your success for the disinterest of a moment?

If your answer is no (it better be no, or you really need to get your priorities straight), let’s get to it. 

STEP ONE: BE HONEST WITH YOURSELF

“This class doesn’t even matter.” “I don’t care about my grades.” “I can finish this the day before.” Sound familiar? You might feel great now, but when you’re staring down at your report card later, it’ll feel like you just got punched. 

This is a cliche, but the greatest obstacle to your success is yourself - especially the lies you tell yourself! Sit yourself down and be honest about what you need to improve on. Be as blunt as you can, but for god’s sake, don’t throw yourself a pity party! There’s no use agonizing over what you can’t change. Instead, set realistic, achievable goals, and make a game plan. Struggling with math? Go to extra help. Behind in all your classes? Stay in for a couple nights and actually work. 

STEP TWO: STOP WITH THE FANCY SHIT

Now you know what your goals are, but maybe you want some inspiration, so you log on to tumblr and are instantly bombarded by all these beautiful, well lit shots of the most gorgeous bullet journals, planners, and notes. Impressive, right? Well, I’m gonna let you in on a little secret: they’re all useless! A simple phone planner works just as well, if not better, than a fancy agenda, because you’ll always have it on you, it’s not a hassle to carry around, and you don’t feel obligated to make it look pretty. 

Riddle me this, where are you going to find all this extra motivation to keep prettying up your bullet journal? To write all your notes in perfect, colour coded printing? There aren’t many times in life where taking the easy was out will actually benefit you, so take advantage! Stop wasting your time; get a phone planner and write your notes in your natural goddamn handwriting. 

STEP THREE: CLEAN YOUR ROOM

Yep, your entire room - not just your study space! This one can be put on the back burner for a bit if you’re on a really pressing deadline, but I wouldn’t recommend it. I’m notoriously messy, and if I don’t watch myself, I’d find myself in dirty-laundry-and-old-notes hell. A little bit of organized chaos is fine, I even encourage it! But try working when your desk is covered in mounds of paper and you have nowhere to put your laptop – it’s just not conducive to success. 

Keeping your entire room clean is a way to stave off stress, frustration, and even embarrassment, because nobody wants to show potential roommates how much of a mess they are. 

STEP FOUR: ACTUALLY WORK

Yeah, I know what you’re thinking: “actually work? Who does this girl think she is?” I’d probably think the same thing, except I’ve learned the valuable lesson of sucking it the hell up, and you will too. When you get home from work, grab a snack and work. When you have a free period, figure out what’s due and work. Stop reasoning yourself out of work: you’re not going to finish this later, and that will be on the test. There’s really not much to say about this one, because it’s the step that requires the most raw effort, and you’re really only going to find that within yourself. Tell yourself what’s at stake, and realize that, by setting the standard for your mediocrity now, you’re potentially trapping yourself in a cycle that will last for years. 

STEP FIVE: CUT YOURSELF SOME SLACK

Maybe you’ve been on top of your shit for a day, a week, or even a month, and that’s really great. But then… you fail. You miss a deadline or you bomb a test. So what do you do now? Do you allow yourself to fall back into your old habits? Fuck no! Everyone fails, even that studyblr with those perfect bullet journal photos and a perpetually clean study space. I’m going to tell you something that’ll sound really strange: you should value your failures, especially if you worked hard to avoid them. What?! Be HAPPY about failing when I actually TRIED? Yeah, you heard me right. If you don’t know how to handle failure, then when you inevitably experience it, your reaction will be much worse. 

Failing hurts, and boy, I know how embarrassing it can be. But learning how to deal with failure, and especially how to keep trying after it happens, is an invaluable lesson. 

STEP SIX: TREAT. YO. SELF.

Disclaimer: I’m not suggesting you treat yourself after the most basic of tasks, because please. Treat yourself when you know you goddamn well deserve it. Remember that “all work and no play makes jack a dull boy.” If all you do is study and do your homework, then, pardon my french, your life sucks. If you don’t have friends, play a video game! Eat an entire jumbo chocolate bar! Indulge in whatever the fuck you want, you deserve it. I’m someone that has trouble prioritizing future benefits over immediate gratification, so by allowing myself little pleasures, I save myself from crashing and burning. 

Hope these tips helped, but remember to take them with a grain of salt - you’re you and I’m me, and different things work for different people. Good luck!

Fangirl (Or Boy) Problem #3
  • Parental unit: So are they gay?
  • Me Internally: SO YOU SEE I HEAVILY THINK SO BUT I HAVE A MAJOR INNER DISCOURSE ABOUT THIS TOPIC BECAUSE I WANT TO RESPECT THE CHOICES OF THE ACTORS AND NOT FORCE AN OPINION UPON THEM BECAUSE THEY DESERVE A PRIVATE LIFE BUT I ALSO READ REALLY SMUTTY FANFIC ABOUT THEM THAT GIVES ME MENTAL IMAGES ON SCREEN BUT ITS OKAY BECAUSE IM A LITTLE SHIT WHO CARES TOO MUCH ABOUT OTHER PEOPLES FEELINGS
  • Me Externally: lol i wish
Victor on the grand prix finalists

Chris: He’s a friend! Even though he’s turned into a sex beast.

Yurio: My salty son! He’ll do well!

Otabek: He’s cool and a bit mysterious! I like him.

Phichit: Mad selfie game and friends with my beloved Yuri!

Yuri: The best and most perfect of the bunch my adorable boyfriend who I love and is so beautiful and wonderful and have I told you that I love him because I really love him.

JJ: Um…who is this guy again? I think his name is JJ? I could be wrong, really don’t give a shit about him.

  • george lucas: *writes nonsense shit like 'i hate sand it's coarse and rough and irritating an it gets everywhere'*
  • george lucas: *as stated by great actors like harrison ford, was an entirely hands off director that really let actors figure shit out for themselves*
  • george lucas: *insisted on making 85% of the set a blue screen and relied far too heavily on CGI for someone who's approach to directing is giving the actors as little direction as humanly possible*
  • ya'll: hayden christensen ruined the prequels

“I thought I was going to work until I died. But they came in and told me that I was too old and that I didn’t know the computer. They thought I was obsolete. If that’s true—then how did I get so far without the computer? I’ve got that computer in my head. I can design the whole process. I can start with a blank sheet of paper and cycle the whole line: the robots, the tooling, everything. That was my life. At night when I go to sleep, I’m still building welding lines. There were only 1800 of us in this town that could do it. And each of us had our own style. People could recognize Norm Szewsky’s work. But you know what happened? They took all 1800 of our brains, and they put them in a computer. So now a guy who don’t know nothing can just press a button, and out comes a clamp. Oh well, I don’t really give a shit. I’m checking out soon.”

I like the fics where Derek or Stiles get jealous, but what about if everyone else assumes that they’re jealous or possessive, but they really don’t give a shit because they trust each other.

“Stiles did you see Derek’s chatting with that really hot bartender?”
“I hope he’s grabbing me another beer while he’s at it.”

“Derek where’s Stiles?”
“He’s got some overnight project for his astronomy class.”
“Isn’t that the one with that guy who keeps hitting on him?”
“Probably.”
“Don’t you care?”
“Nah.”

“Dude, did you see that hot mom jogging with Derek?”
“I’m really impressed that she can keep up with him, I know I can’t.”
“It doesn’t bother you?”
“No why would it?”

I’m just all about Stiles and Derek trusting each other and not getting jealous when someone else flirts with them because they know at the end of the day they’re going home together.

-Victor+Yuuri: It’s good to see you again Yurio!

-Yuuri knows Sala (hmmmmmm….?)

-Out of everyone present, the only ones to even acknowledge Yuuri are Victor, Yurio, and Sala.

-Emil loves Mickey and wants his attention

-Yuuri has to remind Victor that his eros is for him (aka, the tie grab)

-Yuuri still gets embarassed about showing Victor his demanding side

-Yuuri is a temptress who only Victor has the right to touch (aka, that fucking kiss. OML.)

-Victor and Yuuri are so proud of Yurio it throws him off guard (they just want to love you my dear)

-Victor and Yuuri can pull Yurio out of a mental breakdown

Listen up Punks

If you think Punk is just an aesthetic, get out.
If you think punk is all ripped jeans, rock and roll, and wild hair, please leave.
If you claim to be a punk but make no effort to change society’s standards and challenge the norm outside of your fashion choices, I have a problem with you.
Don’t get me wrong I’m not some elitist asshole who wants to tell you what you can and can’t be, but I will implore you to go look up the history of punk. True punks fight for the oppressed. Punk isn’t just about patches and pins, and it’s certainly not this “I don’t give a fuck” shit I’ve been seeing from some self-proclaimed “punks”.

To be punk is to care enough to say “fuck society for hurting you” to minorities.

Right now, we need the you to really prove how punk you are. If you truly are punk, show some antifascist action.

Sincerely, a frustrated queer punk.

the most disgusting part of this is, america is really showing its true colors. everyone who says racism is dead can shut the fuck up. this is racism right here. this is a man in 2016 spewing this racist, sexist, islamophobic, homophobic shit, and he’s giving all the racist cowards here a chance to put white, heterosexual, male interests back into power. he is voicing all the things people have been to scared to say. thats why this took us all by surprise, bc people were embarrassed to say they were voting for him, these people are literally everything that is wrong with this country and they’re about to put someone just like them in power

Fanstastic Beasts thoughts on Newt & Credence

On a serious note, one of the things I really liked at the end was that when Newt is trying to talk Credence down from his World-Destroying Explosion of Power, he asks Credence “Is it okay if I come over there?” and “Is it okay if I come closer?”

like this poor kid has been getting physically abused all movie and has his every move monitored by people trying to use him, and Graves slaps the shit out of him the second the guy starts acting even remotely scared (and then immediately tosses him when he thinks he’s got what he wanted)

and Newt, even after Credence has destroyed a lot of the city and accidentally gotten Newt locked up in prison, at least has the decency to give him physical space and ask permission to go near him

like it’s really small, but it’s giving Credence some control over who’s allowed to go near him and who’s allowed to touch him when that’s something he doesn’t normally have, and I think that’s really sweet

I’m a tough, thick skinned, no time for nonsense and bullshit, “I don’t need any help I can do it myself”, refuse to cry in front of people, workaholic, mind focused on my business and finances, people come people go type of girl.. but on the flip side, I’m highly emotional, I cry alone often, overly stressed, extremely sensitive, dwells on shit for longer than I should, mind still focused on my business and finances and I love the people who’ve stayed in my life dearly, but people really do come and go so meh..

My point is, strong women aren’t made of metal. Just because we have a strong exterior doesn’t mean we don’t feel deeply. Give us a fucking break and offer a helping hand or even just a hug once in a while. Even if we say we don’t need it.
