but I want them to get along


 though I don’t 100% love myself just yet, I can definitely say that I’m getting there. I used to talk down on myself a lot but I’ve stopped doing that almost all together. of course there are still some bad days, but thanks to you I’m able to get through them. thank you bts, for being the light during my darkest nights, and for helping me realize that I was loveable all along. you’ve shown me I have reasons I should love myself. 

anonymous asked:

I feel like if one of the guys caught Angel doing a face mask on his free time they make fun of him but after a while angel would convince them to do one themselves 😂

Angel: “You guys can make fun of me all you want, I’m the one with a soft fucking face”

Or something along the lines of that 😂😂😂😂

And he’d probably get Ez to do it 😂

Smartcookie's Writing Desk
A collection of all my writing, WIPs, and inspiration. Icon & sidebar image credit: blue-sparrow-art

Here is my official writing blog everyone! 

I know dashes and blogs can get cluttered, and writing/fic can slip through the cracks. This sideblog is a collection for all my past and future writing, categorized by fandom/ship for easy searching. Now, you’ll never miss a new fic that might get buried under the tons of multifandom content that I love to have on main. 

Fanfiction & WIP Wednesday will still be posted from smartcookie727, but it will all be reblogged immediately after to @luminescent-words. Original/non-fanfic pieces will be posted from luminescent from now on. All writing resources, WIPs, inspiration, and art based on my work will be there as well. Give it a follow for the latest updates and all my stories in one place!

I want to turn this Archangel-au into it’s own series but I am still attached to Cuphead. Maybe when the DLC comes out and we get more insight into the world and everything. Then I can decided for myself on what to do with all of this. I’ve made so much stories and lore along with Tomo that this series is way too ooc to fit in the world.
The story will remain, it’s the Cuphead world part that needed to be change. But for now, I’ll still be making au content and keep on posting them for everyone to enjoy.

“companion(s) - doggos there to lick your tears and make you smile”

i need more young yuuri and young viktor with their doggos ;v;

extra: (from my experience with my cousin’s poodle, I learned that)

doggos react when they see other doggos

doggos react when they see ball(os)

doggos react (sadly) when they don’t see owners :’(((

“I read a lot on the subject.  I studied the texts.  And I decided it was permissible to take it off, so that’s what I did.  My mom was terrified of what people would think.  She asked me to delete all our mutual friends on Facebook.  She said if I didn’t wear the hijab, then I couldn’t live at home.  So I packed four big bags and went to live with a friend.  It was the first time I’d ever slept out of my house.  Over the next few weeks, I sent my parents messages every single day.  I always told them where I was, what I was doing, and who I was with.  I wanted to show that I forgave them, and that I was still their girl, and that one day things would be normal again.  They didn’t respond for three months.  Until one holiday my uncle called and invited me home for dinner.  My parents started crying as soon as I walked in the door.  They’d prepared a huge meal.  They said that they didn’t mean it, and that they love me a lot, and that they’re proud of me.  Things are very good now.  We get along even better than when I obeyed.  They see I’m doing great things with my freedom.  I have a great job and I travel.  They’re very proud.  I’ve learned to do what you want in life.  Because if you do, the world will change to match you.”

Lance and Matt BROTP (Latte)

Okay okay so we All know about the amazing langst potential with Matt around

But after that?

I just really want them to be best bros


Along the way they start talking. They discover that their sense of humor is almost the same and they have aLOt in common


*Keith walks into the room*

Matt: “is that a fucking Mullet. Who is that angsty teen over there”

Lance: “Thank u God for Pidge`s brother, Matt Holt, and my future husba-”

Pidge: “LANCE EW NO.”


*Green lion flying through the air*

Lance, muttering to himself:
“Oh shit whaddup-”

Matt, basically shouting into Shiro`s ear :


They talk about family, about how they both miss their moms. Lance tells Matt how he looks alot like his brother at home. Matt is just like “dude I can be your brother until u get back home” because that’s what Lance did to Pidge and Matt is forever grateful for that. He wants to return the favour.


What if one day they go on a diplomatic mission together and they managed to convince the aliens that voltron’s anthem was All Stars by Smashmouth??

They also manage to convince them that the sign of the alliance with Voltron is a finger gun dab?

Like dabbing but with finger guns

So like the Leader wanting to please Voltron commands their army to line up and yeah like there is a whole troop of millitants standing intimidatingly in front of the team. And then Suddenly the general shouts
“ATTENTION!” and all those scary buff ass soldiers dab in perfect syn c

The team LOSES their shit. Pidge is red faced, cackling , Hunk is wheezing so hard tears just keep streaming down his face, Keith is a little confused but chuckles, he is glad to see the team happy. Shiro is fighting hard to keep a straight face, his lips are turned up at the corners and his shoulders are shaking. Allura is just???? Coran is just shakes his head fondly because its That Thing Lance told him about and tries explaining it to the princess.


Lance introducing Matt to his “chill time”

It includes fabulous self care. Eg: face masks, nail polish, etc.
(“Katie touch my leg it’s so S m O O Th”)

Matt introduces Lance to his own “chill time” as well

Very fucking dramatic. It consists of launching themselves out of their lions, switching off their comms and screaming about how ‘life is a biTCH into the dark abyss of space where no one can hear them.


I bet they do little sleepovers where they gossip and do the whole self care routine

It will also usually include BLANKET FORTS.
And passwords and codenames.

Keith: “Cowboy McEmo”
He has to sing “Old McDonald had a farm” but instead it’s “Keith McEmo had a farm” or just brandish his knife threateningly

Pidge: “Gremlin” “WhatthehellisaPidge”
Has to say how cool Matt is in sonnets

Hunk: “Babe”, “Bro”, “Sweetheart,” basically any pet name in the world
Doesn’t need to do anything. But he insists and brings a snack or two anyways

Shiro: “Space dad,” “Naruto Scriptwriter”
Has to admit Matt is better at Mario Kart than he is (despite Matt being horrible at it)

((Thank u to my friend on Insta u know wh9 u are))

fine clothes and gory hobbies

Two very differently mannered but definitely dangerous people? (aka, an excuse to draw Ruben in The Red Coat again)

Have you ever felt like you attract certain signs or have a specific pattern of relationships with specific signs? That’s because each sign forms an aspect with the other signs (such as squares, opposites etc.) based on their position in the chart and the distance between those signs. This determines the way the relationship works. I started noticing these patterns in my relationships (also friendships) and researched a bit about it. Linda Goodman talks about these patterns in her Sun signs astrology textbook, but I think this pattern can be observed in any placement, not just Sun signs, especially Moon placements.

1-1 pattern

A 1-1 pattern describes a relationship between two people of the same sign, such as Pisces-Pisces, Aries-Aries etc. In this sign pattern, the strengths and weaknesses are magnified in both of you. It’s easy to understand each other, but sometimes the lack of differences can bore you, as there is nothing to learn from each other. There is too much comfort. This can be different based on other sign placements. Be careful to not swing in extremes, as this may ruin the relationship.

2-12 pattern

This type of pattern is seen between two signs that fall right next to one another on the zodiac wheel.  In these combinations, one person plays the teacher, and the other the student. There is something about this relationship that involves spiritual life lessons. There’s a compassion inherent between the individuals, and a patient understanding for the other partner’s differences, there will be many. 

Aries — Taurus

Taurus — Gemini

Gemini — Cancer

Cancer — Leo

Leo — Virgo

Virgo — Libra

Libra — Scorpio

Scorpio — Sagittarius

Sagittarius — Capricorn

Capricorn — Aquarius

Aquarius — Pisces

Pisces — Aries 

3-11 pattern

A 3-11 pattern describes a relationship between two signs that fall three or eleven spaces apart from one another on the zodiac wheel, respectively. These combinations of signs will be fast friends, get along well with one another, although they’ll likely be annoyed by one another and probably find themselves bickering a lot.That said, the trust and love between these individuals makes any argument easy to overcome, and the friendship that ties them together will be lasting, even if the romantic relationship ends.

Aries — Gemini and Aquarius

Taurus — Cancer and Pisces

Gemini — Aries and Leo

Cancer — Taurus and Virgo

Leo — Gemini and Libra

Virgo — Cancer and Scorpio

Libra — Leo and Sagittarius

Scorpio — Virgo and Capricorn

Sagittarius — Libra and Aquarius

Capricorn — Scorpio and Pisces

Aquarius — Aries and Sagittarius

Pisces — Taurus and Capricorn

4-10 pattern

A 4-10 pattern describes a relationship between two signs that fall four or 10 spaces apart from one another on the zodiac wheel, respectively. These relationships are tough. It is hard to get along. There’s just something about this person that irks you, or makes you want them to put a lid on their personality. Someone plays the disciplinarian in this relationship, and their efforts to change the other person eventually ruins it’s chances for survival in a romantic sense. 

Aries — Cancer and Capricorn

Taurus — Leo and Aquarius

Gemini — Virgo and Pisces

Cancer — Libra and Aries

Leo — Taurus and Scorpio

Virgo — Gemini and Sagittarius

Libra — Cancer and Capricorn

Scorpio — Leo and Aquarius

Sagittarius — Virgo and Pisces

Capricorn — Aries and Libra

Aquarius — Taurus and Scorpio

Pisces — Gemini and Sagittarius  

5-9 pattern

The 5-9 pattern describes a relationship between two signs that fall five or nine spaces apart from one another on the zodiac wheel, respectively. It also describes any relationship between two signs of the same element. The chances for a permanent, lasting relationship between these signs is more feasible than any other combination, simply because there is such a natural empathy for the other person’s inherent qualities. Disagreements and fights between these signs are useful, productive even, because no time is spent wasted trying to understand behavior that is drastically different between the individuals. The understanding is already there.

Aries — Leo and Sagittarius

Taurus — Virgo and Capricorn

Gemini — Libra and Aquarius

Cancer — Scorpio and Pisces

Leo — Aries and Sagittarius

Virgo — Taurus and Capricorn

Libra — Gemini and Aquarius

Scorpio — Cancer and Pisces

Sagittarius — Aries and Leo

Capricorn — Taurus and Virgo

Aquarius — Gemini and Libra

Pisces — Cancer and Scorpio 

6-8 pattern

A 6-8 pattern describes a relationship between two signs that fall six or eight spaces apart from one another on the zodiac wheel, respectively. This relationship pattern is like a witch’s spell. You are absolutely drawn in by one another, the charisma that this person exudes is what you find sexually stimulating about them.There is a desire to understand and get to the bottom of who this person is, and sex is generally the tool you use to do so. There’s also a greater than average willingness to be of service to this person, or a willingness on their part to be of service to you. Unfortunately this person puzzles you, and makes you feel as if you’ll never get the natural sympathy required to make the relationship work.

Aries — Virgo and Scorpio

Taurus — Libra and Sagittarius

Gemini — Scorpio and Capricorn

Cancer — Sagittarius and Aquarius

Leo — Capricorn and Pisces

Virgo — Aries and Aquarius

Libra — Taurus and Pisces

Scorpio — Aries and Gemini

Sagittarius — Taurus and Cancer

Capricorn — Gemini and Leo

Aquarius — Cancer and Virgo

Pisces — Leo and Libra

7-7 pattern

A 7-7 pattern describes a relationship between two signs that fall seven spaces apart from one another on the zodiac wheel, on opposite sides respectively. Opposites do attract, and in romantic relationships, you’ll find that you’re drawn to this person because they personify the characteristics you don’t have. You have a lot to learn from one another, and with patience and understanding, relationships in a 7-7 pattern will allow both individuals to grow more together than in any other relationship. Beware of envy, as you might admire this person so much you actually wish you could be them. Remember you have qualities that they wish they possessed, too.

Aries — Libra

Taurus — Scorpio

Gemini — Sagittarius

Cancer — Capricorn

Leo — Aquarius

Virgo — Pisces

Talks Machina Highlights - Critical Role C2E32 (August 28, 2018)

Tonight’s guests are Liam O’Brien and Sam Riegel!

  • Announcements: 
    • No Talks Machina next Tuesday, but they will be back the following week to discuss episode 33 of CR. Next Tuesday, instead of Talks, they’re filming something very special for the new channel. Sam: “You are? Oh, god.” 
    • Handbooker Helper premieres tomorrow at 10 AM Pacific Time at youtube.com/criticalrole! The first episode focuses on dice basics. 
    • There’s a new charity drive for the Pablove Foundation, dedicated to research toward ending children’s cancer; they’ve already hit the first $20k benchmark, which means Sam will be DMing a game of Crash Pandas! The next goal is $50k, which will be used to establish a research grant.
  • @critrolestats for this episode:
    • Nott has successfully disguised herself 12 times since the campaign started.
    • Caleb’s most-cast spells (in order): Alarm, Firebolt, and Identify.
    • The party has spent 55 of their 81 days together on the road.
    • Gustav’s sentence in Trostenwald lasted 77 days. He averaged about 7 gold, 8 copper per day of work.
  • Is Nott freaked out after her adventure with Jester went so badly? “Nott is always freaked out to do anything, but is starting to loosen up a bit and trust that– at least up until this last episode– trust that her friends could get her out of most scenarios. Maybe she’ll be a little more hesitant in the future.” She might “take one of the responsible ones along, like Fjord or Caleb.” Liam: “Yeah, you should bring someone sharp and level-headed, in case you need to go to a hospital…”
  • Caleb loves that a fan points out the parallels between Caleb’s similarities to the protagonist in the Dark Tower books: “Caleb wants to do really specific things, and he is not done with that. They’re potentially harmful, and I think that before he started traveling with these people, the main thing was getting them to trust me, and form a working relationship, but the bigger problem now is, does their friendship become a problem? Do I want to get close to you if I know potentially that I’ve got to walk away from you at a bad moment?” There’s another element he can’t talk about yet where he took more direct inspiration from The Dark Tower. He’s not sure yet which way Caleb will end up veering, and whether there’s a point where he’ll prioritize his friends over his long-term goals. “For all characters, there’s what he tells himself is the deal, and what’s really the deal. I’m enjoying not knowing where the hell it’s going.”
  • “Nott doesn’t really much care about Gustav, but also does not give a shit about money. It’s a means to an end for her.” Other than providing a little security for herself and Caleb, “the other stuff is way cooler, the little buttons and stuff.” When the opportunity came to pay so much for Gustav’s release, “she was like, ‘Yeah, sure, great.’”
  • Sam and Nott both wanted to know more about Molly’s past. Liam wanted to know, but Caleb didn’t care. Especially since Molly emphasized not caring about his past, and they didn’t know each other too well, Caleb was satisfied to just take that at face value. Molly’s experience was also interesting as a complete opposite to Caleb’s own experience of being completely consumed by his past.
  • Sam and Liam talk about how they both think about the show constantly throughout the week. Liam: “And I also spend 10% of my week thinking about Vax, too.”
  • Gif of the Week: Caduceus learns how much money 400 gold is. There may or may not be a live voiceover version of the text.
  • Why does Caleb still use fire? “Caleb feels like he needs to work through it, ‘cause fire’s not going anywhere. Maybe something that will come out eventually is the reason that fire is his first and he has a real affinity for it now. The fire is natural progression. The Fireball is something that Caleb got just from leveling up, so I took that for him to be understanding what he can already do and magnifying it. It’s the strongest weapon in his arsenal. He needs to master the misery and the pain so he’s ready to deal with facing his ex-teacher someday, or other people.” On Beau being the one to bring him back each time lately: “He likes that. It’s a flawed friendship, it’s not affectionate the way Caleb and Nott is, but that’s okay. The instinct to bet big and tell her everything came from a sense of shared interest, and shared point of view. They’re still very different, but there’s a lot in common there.” A lot of the things she does has been reaffirming his choice to take a chance on her.
  • Nott’s aware that she’s been more and more powerful, and so she’s been drinking less in battle situations. “She’s still skittish and gets nervous about stuff, but they’ve survived and succeeded in enough fights now that she’s becoming a little more brave.” Liam asks if Nott knows how gifted she is. Sam: “She’s aware that she can do things better than other folks in the group, but she probably would not think those things are the most spectacular.” Liam talks about how Caleb and Nott are “two different kinds of gifted weirdos.” Sam: “Just like us. Except for the ‘gifted’ part.”
  • Caleb was impressed by Caduceus’ approach to the Ettin encounter.
  • Sam: “Something that I just decided about goblins: they have short lifespans, and they’re also super brutal and just attack and they’re mean and get hungry and all this stuff, so I just thought, maybe goblins are just like unrestrained id.” A lot of Nott’s character came from that thought.
  • It felt really strange for Nott and Caleb to be welcomed by Alfield when they arrived. Caleb’s concerned about their amplified visibility in the Empire, which isn’t sitting well with him. At least when they’re affiliated with the Gentleman and the criminal element, it keeps the visibility away. Nott’s hesitant to be in the spotlight, but has also realized that cheering means fewer thrown rocks, so that’s good.
  • Fanart of the Week: Jester and Caduceus strolling through town.
  • There’s a brief foray into autoerotic asphyxiation. As you do.
  • Liam, Taliesin, and Marisha have all met SideBySamuel. The mystery continues.
  • Caleb on the dodecahedron: “It’s a little too perfect.” It confirms what he believes—that it has to be possible to manipulate time—and drives him forward. He wonders about the source that this thing is a splinter of. He’s also wondering if the Academy’s project is one and the same. “Time travel is good. It definitely does not endanger present reality.”
  • “What is Talks Machina, Brian?”
  • Brian: “We have to put a stop to this.”
  • Sam: “On the surface, Nott noticed that Caleb mentioned Astrid and probably just thinks that it would be nice to have a young lady in his life.” Dani: “I called your ex-girlfriend the other day, and we’re having lunch.” Sam: “I hear she’s a doctor…” Liam: “I’m tired of coming over to these dinners, ma.” Sam: “I hear the wizard down the street got married…”
  • Liam on Astrid: “That would be bad stuff. Bad news. I don’t know if it’s good or bad, but it’s complicated.” Sam: “Astrid has got to be either super bad guy now, super dead, or something else we don’t know about.” Liam: “One of the many things Caleb wonders about every night before he goes to sleep, about both his friends. He doesn’t know. It’s been 16 years since he saw them last.” He’s 33 now. The fire happened when he was about 16, he was in the asylum for 11-ish years, and then he was traveling on his own for about five.
  • Nott worries about Caleb “about the same” in battle, but she’s definitely noticing the others stepping up, especially Beau, to watch out for and protect him. Sam points out that Liam’s strategy has been excellent lately to keep Caleb out of danger. “Nott always has an eye on Caleb, and Sam always has an eye on Caleb.” Liam: “That’s what Vax did. I would override common sense consciously because I thought it was in-character.” He still has to suppress his first instinct to have Caleb fling himself into danger for his friends.
  • On the surface, Caleb knows it’s not a good thing for Nott to be so affectionate toward him, but deep down, Caleb really appreciates Nott’s affection. “With Beau, there’s no affection, but he feels like he should be called an asshole and a shit, and he feels like he deserves it. It will keep him sharpened and on task.” He likes, on an unconscious level, what he gets from both of them for different reasons.
  • Which pet does Nott want to eat first? The weasel. Definitely. Sam ventures a theory that the pets represented the members of Vox Machina. The truth is out there, Sam.
  • To Caleb, it felt a bit wrong to turn his back on the Empire given everything that’s happening right now and everything that has to happen there in the future.

Talks Machina: After Dark: When It Gets Dirty (Big Dick Peanut Butter Energy)

  • Liam brings out both his Speak-n-Spell voice and his ~Cuddlefish~ voice. He also does a Nott impression. Sam: “You sound like Miss Piggy on acid.”
  • Nott’s not looking forward to the beach. Caleb’s interested in the beach in a Death in Venice kind of way. Brian ventures a guess that they’re going to discover that Caleb’s just inexplicably super ripped.
  • What tricks do they want to teach the pets? Liam: “Maybe ‘Die Instead Of Me’.”
  • Does Beau secretly have a gooey center? Sam and Liam, in unison: “Ask Keg.”
  • Nott feels safe with the M9 around, not because they protect her, but because they protect each other. “She’s always relied on Caleb for protection, and now I think she’s relieved more than surprised that she doesn’t have to put that burden on Caleb, or each other. That they have a support group of people that can help them and keep them out of danger.”
  • Nott expects Jester’s mom to be a “real sweet, fine, fancy lady.” Liam: “Caleb had good parents, and everything that Jester describes does not sound great to him.” He doesn’t say anything to her about it because he doesn’t feel like he can give advice. Dani: “My parents that I killed were awesome. As a child of great parents, that I murdered…”  He keeps asking about her childhood, and he’s fond of her, so he’s dismayed about what he hears, but he feels like he can’t say anything about it.
  • Liam: “My least favorite thing about Sam is how much of a fucking food snob he and his wife are. It’s unbearable, mostly because I want the food.” Sam: “The thing that I love most about Liam is that he’s a gentle love, but he’s a kind soul. He wants to help people. But he can’t because he’s too busy.” Liam: “True, true, true. What I like about Sam is he’s the living embodiment of Shakespeare’s Fools. He’s seemingly a buffoon, but if you know him well, you know that there’s no end to the depth and soul of his character. He is skating on talent and wit.”
  • Liam: “I don’t know how cameras work.”

“Isn’t that the way between brothers? They hate and love each other at the same time.”


Doodles that I don’t feel like cleaning up any more than this

it’s my favorite friends again ✨
