can you see my obsession yet

UPDATED SIM BABY PROFILES!!!

Alright, I think I finally got all my new sims up on here with most of their information! It took me all night and since I’m obsessed with making sims they’ll probably be more added later, but for now whoever wants to ship with me can go here and see if a sim they’re interested is available or not! Or hell, find a sim they’re interested in! If you do see someone you like, just dm me for their info if they have a instagram, twitter, etc and if I haven’t made one yet we can just rp wherever you’d like. I always rp to see if a sim fits with another, so rping is a must because I have way too many ships just based on pictures. Here’s the link: http://arisimmin.tumblr.com/simbabyprofiles I hope you guys enjoy reading about some of my favorite sims lives (:

As you can see, it’s gonna be about this cast for a minute y'all. My obsession hasn’t died yet😭 As hard as it was I ranked them in order. I love them all tho😻

1. Woody McClain
He’s so fine, funny, and humble. Like I’m really in love with him y'all. I’m mentally married to him and everything.💍😭

2. Keith Powers
He’s such a cutie😍 and he’s so laidback and chill. It’s so funny when he jokes the other members of the cast😂

3. Luke James
His voice💞 his confidence, his coolness. He dresses very nice too. His whole vibe just sends out black excellence.

4. Bryshere Gray
I’ve had a crush on this guy since the first season of Empire😩 I love the way he acts, he’s amazing. His smile is so beautiful💕

5. Algee Smith
It was so hard to figure out whether I should put him before or after Bryshere 😭but Algee is so cute💞 he has those bedroom eyes.I loved him as Ralph and I really wanna see more from him. He’s so positive and that’s what makes him even more attractive.

6. Elijah Kelley
I love his energy 💖omg. It’s so cute when he gets worked up and excited about something. Also have y'all seen this man’s outfits lately? His fashion sense is A1. And we cannot forget about the fact he’s fine dark chocolate🍫

Once again this was very hard for me😭 Let’s see if y'all can do it. Who’s your favorite? 👀

i live for isak calling even baby?? let’s talk about it more. 

  • the exasperated “baby” on the rare mornings when even doesn’t cook him breakfast because they’re both too exhausted by the night before (seriously, isak made even play fifa until 1am before he could admit that he sucks and no matter how many games they play, isak will always lose). even takes the last of isak’s cocoa puffs, and shit, isak had actually been looking forward to them?? but alas, he’d stepped out of the shower a minute after even, and his cereal stealing boyfriend had struck (even steals his clothes his heart and now his chocolatey cereal too?? isak has half a mind to break up with him). isak’s pouting at even, and even feels so bad for him that he offers isak some of the cereal. but even’s the kind of guy who pours his cereal into his milk and gulps it all down at once, and isak is very particular about only pouring a little bit of cereal into his milk at a time, so he just turns up his nose at even’s gross soggy abomination. 
  • isak hates hates hates waking up in the morning, and trying to figure out how to get isak up when they both have school is just trial and error. isak would appreciate it. it’s like a scientific experiment, except it’s one where the consequence would be an armful of grumpy boyfriend and no kisses until at least 10 o’clock. even has tried everything from blasting nas at full volume, to getting magnus in there to say something stupid because isak’s reflex is to drag him, but he’s found out that the most effective method is to pepper isak’s face with kisses until he blinks awake groggily, because he’ll pout, and he’ll say, “goddammit, baby,” like he’s actually annoyed, but he’s giggling so hard that even’s not buying it. 
  • the boys make fun of it so much!! the first time even laughs at him for dipping a chocolate chip cookie into nutella at lunch, isak says, “don’t fucking judge me baby you literally only make recipes with sour cream” magnus parrots “baby?? baBY??” jonas and mahdi are waggling their eyebrows so suggestively that isak blushes bright red. he tries to stutter out an excuse, like, “that’s not what i said. i said maybe?? KB?? bey bee?? haha i just like the concept of beyonce in the bee movie ok that’s totally what i meant.”
  • of course even ruins it all (because that’s all he’s good for) when the whole gang is getting kebab after school and isak can’t get his shit together because he didn’t really sleep last night and he’s spilling his food all over the table. even leans over with a pile of napkins and scoops it all up with a fond “baby” and a chaste kiss to the lips. the boys go fucking wild. 
  • they always leave each other with a peck on the cheek before separating for classes - and as much as isak wants to pull even closer until they’re intertwined, until they’re causing a scene for those fucking dance chicks he can tell are watching them - he knows he’s not ready for that yet. it’s soft and sweet, just a brush of his lips as he whispers, “bye, baby, see you after school.” it still gives isak a rush when he remembers that even will keep coming back to him, and no matter how long they’ll spend apart - whether it’s school cockblocking them, or when even has bad days  and refuses to let isak come over - they’ll always end up like this, safe in the circle of each other’s arms. 

also thanks to @strangetowns​ i can’t get even’s obsession with sour cream out of my head 

Confession: I don’t understand people’s obsession of trying to get quiet people to “act out” or “get out of their comfort zone.” I’ve been dealing with this my whole life, and I hate it. I have to be comfortable around you, better yet I have to know you for some time to even get comfortable. Being quiet is just who I am, I’m never going to lose that personality trait, for anyone. Some people mean good but others just want to see you act of character from some reason and I don’t get it. I think it’s plot so they can keep bringing back up in your face every time you come around. It’s like shaming in a way, and they never let it go. I don’t get it, I wish people would stop thinking that something wrong with quiet people, especially quiet black girls/women. We’re just quiet. Our personality or the way we interact has nothing personal to do with you.

This Isn't A Pretty Disorder

It’s ironic, really, how we all talk about looking better, getting skinnier, looking prettier
As if bones could brush beauty onto now protuding cheekbones the same way blush, or nutrition does.
And it’s ironic how it’s seen as a vain disorder when we hate everything the mirror shows.
I’ve spent more nights crying myself to sleep than I can count
Tracing the slender shapes of thinspo bodies on my phone screen
Making meal plans and finding low cal recipes,
Cutting and slicing angry red lines onto my legs…
And yet I’m still here. Fat. Nothing changes and it’s probably my fault.
You start to isolate yourself because you can’t stand your body
The thought of anyone seeing the chub or the extra fat is nothing short of mortifying.
Sex will become a way to burn calories and you’ll spend most of it obsessing over the way your body looks
When your partner tells you he loves you, you’ll think of every reason why he shouldn’t.
You’ll want to say “but I’m fat” but you’ll bite your tongue.
And the worst part is nothing has changed. I am fat. Still fat. Objectively fat not even my own opinion, I actually am, even after all this time.
It’s not worth it.

Dear Evan Hansen
We've been way too out of touch
Things have been crazy and it sucks that we don't talk that much
But I should tell you that I think of you each night
I rub my nipples and start moaning with delightWhy would you write thatI'm just trying to tell the truth You know what?
If you aren't going to take this seriously... Okay you need to calm yourself! This has to be perfect, okay? The emails have to prove that we were actually friends
They've got to be completely realistic There is nothing unrealistic about the love that one man feels for another Let's go back In fact, it's something quite beautiful Let's go back, Jared! I've gotta tell you life without you has been hard. Hard?Has been bad bad?
Has been rough Lame!
And I miss talking about life and other stuff
Very specific
Shut up 1like my parents
Who says that? I love my parents
But each day's another fight
If I stop smoking drugs then everything might be alright smoking drugs just fix it!
This isn't realistic at all!
It doesn't even sound like Connor!
Well I want to show that I was a good friend
Y'know? That I was trying to help him Oh my God if I stop smoking crack Crack?!
If I stop smoking pot then everything might be alright
I'll take your advice
I'll try to be more nice
I'll turn it around
Wait and see It’s all that it takes
Is a little reinvention
It’s easy to change if you give it your attention
All you gotta do is just believe you can be who you want to be
Sincerely, me Are we done yet?
Well I mean I can't just show them one email
Okay, please stop hyperventilating
I'm not hyperventilating
You're having considerable trouble breathing
I'm having no trouble breathing
Do you need a paper bag to breath into?
I'm not hyperventilating!
Dear Connor Murphy
Yes I've also missed our talks

Anti Never Left

We’ve all accepted it now, but I keep forgetting about something that happened to me which is actually very relevant to all of this.

Party Hard
First of all, the thumbnail for the first video, which was uploaded November 25th 2016, is Anti. You literally cannot argue otherwise because look

So this was during a time that Anti was just a Halloween thing. It had been nearly a month since his takeover and suddenly here he is in the thumbnail.

2nd Video
So my reason for this post is actually about the 2nd video. At 9:19, Sean laughs maniacally. It’s what we would now call an ‘Anti laugh’, but as I said, Anti was just a Halloween thing at this time. I, being a fan of Anti but not obsessed with him just yet, made a silly comment about this. You can actually still see the comment if you scroll down in the comments a little bit.

Anyway, it sparked theorists talking about whether Sean had been dead since Halloween, and then the man himself decided to give me a heart attack and reply to me. Obviously the screenshot is from when it happened since it was 10 months ago now.
(FYI I was obsessed with Undertale back then. My name is now YouTuber Trash with Anti as my icon so times have changed)

If this isn’t proof that Anti was at least still around after Halloween, then I don’t know what is

My reactions every time I see anything to do with Cameron.

Love at First Video Part 19: Comfort

Misha Collins x Reader

1300 Words

Story Summary: You were a babysitter, but you wanted to be more. Deciding to create a cooking video, you were shocked when it garnered the attention of a well known actor. Soon the attention becomes something neither of you can ignore.

Catch Up Here: Masterpost

You knew you shouldn’t let what those two girls say bother you. Understanding that was easy, but actually doing that, not so much. Their words dug deep, making all the good memories fall to the back of your mind as they rang over and over again.

You hadn’t even thought about the fans reactions to you being in his video. After all, the two of you hadn’t even really announced your relationship yet. But you hadn’t expected that sort of reaction, the utter disdain and rudeness that had leaked off of them as they glared your way. They hadn’t even been careful in their hatred of you, they had wanted you to see it.

Clutching your pillow tightly to your chest, you let the sobs tear out of you. It was hard, when someone was rude to you like that. You always tried to be a kind, and considerate, and other people’s words always hurt your more than they should.

You were so lost in your own pain, that you didn’t hear the gentle knock on the door, or even the creak when it opened. But you did feel the gentle hand, as Misha rested it on your shoulder. “Y/N, you’re scaring me. Tell me what’s wrong.”

You felt the bed sag as he sat down next to you, and you rolled over, letting him pull you into his arms. You tucked your head into his chest, the sobs continuing as you had a hard time catching your breath. You felt Misha rubbing your back, soothing circles that helped calm you down. Minutes passed by, and slowly your crying slowed down, enough that you could breathe and relax a little.

Noticing you had calmed down, Misha tilted your face so he could see you. You wanted to duck back under, and press your face to his chest. You knew you must look a sight, with your red eyes, and mascara dripping down your face. But he kept a gentle pressure on your chin, his eyes full of worry and concern. “Care to tell me what that was about?”

“It’s stupid.” You muttered, wanting nothing more than to wallow in your own misery. You loved knowing that Misha cared about you enough to be concerned, but you didn’t want him to see you like that.

He let go of your chin then, and you sank back into the comfort of his chest, his arms once again wrapped around you, his chin resting on the top of your head. “It must be something if it got you this upset. I don’t care how stupid it is, maybe it will make you feel better to talk about it.” He prompted you.

Without his deep gaze on you, it was a little easier for the words to get out. “I just overheard a couple of girls talking today. I let it get to me a little more than I should have.” You said, trying to skirt around the issue, not wanting Misha to know the real reason.

“Come On Y/N, that’s not all of it.” He said, not giving in. “What did those girls say?”

You sighed. “They were fans of yours. And they recognized me from the video. I guess they don’t like me. They said I was just a fling, that you would never stay with a girl like me. And that I probably did some favors to get in your video.” You told him, the tears starting to well up again while you remembered those horrible girls. “And I know it’s stupid to get upset over words, but I couldn’t help it.”

You felt his arms tighten around you as you spoke, and you knew what those girls had said, upset him too. “That’s the worse thing about my job. I love it, and the fans so much. But they can be a little obsessive. But it’s not because they hate you. Hell, they don’t even know you yet. They are just jealous, and they should be. Because you have my heart, and they never will.” He told you, his words having the effect he wanted. They calmed you down, making you see that he was right.

“But they don’t actually know I’m with you. That we love each other.” You said.

“That’s right, you haven’t seen the video. Come on, wipe those tears, and let’s go watch it. I think that will answer a lot of your questions.” He said, pulling back from you, his callused finger surprisingly soft as he wiped away the last of your tears.

Taking a deep breath, you nodded, grabbing his hand as he pulled you up. He didn’t let go, holding onto it tight as he led you down the stairs and into his study. “Where are the kids?” You asked him, amazed at how quiet the house was.

“They’re over at the neighbors. I was so worried about you, I figured it was a good idea to get them out of the house for a little bit.” He said, squeezing your hand. He pulled out his desk chair, sitting down before pulling you down so you were sitting on his lap. His laptop was still open, and reaching around you, he had the video pulled up with a couple of clicks.

“Here, watch and see.” He said, turning the volume up. Your mood immediately brightened as you watched West attack his dad with the flour, watching as Misha turned on you. It showed all four of you covered in flour as West did most of the mixing and baking.

It wasn’t the baking that had you so enraptured with the video. It was the interaction between you and Misha that had you riveted to the screen. Little touches here and there, like Misha leaning over and tucking a stray hair behind your ear. Or a hand on your lower back. The glances between you and Misha were often, and either sweet, or steamy. It was easy to see from the video that you and Misha were more than friends, so easy that you were sure anyone who watched could figure that out.

“Wow.” You breathed, as Misha ran his hand up and down your arm, before pulling you back to lean against his chest.

“I didn’t realize we were sending googly eyes at each other until I started editing. But anyone who sees this should realize you are more than just a fling to me. That we both care deeply for each other.” He explained, and you nodded, agreeing with him.

“There will always be fans like that, won’t there?” You asked him, tilting your head back so it rested against his shoulder. The video had worked, had calmed you down, but your fears of being hated, and ridiculed were still there.

“I hate to say it, but probably. They are a passionate group, and I love them. But maybe, once they say how happy I truly am with you, they will be happy for the both of us, and welcome you into the family.” He told you.

“Are we going to do that by doing more videos?” You asked him, as he leaned down to kiss your cheek.

His mouth stayed next to your ear, nibbling on it, before he whispered into it. “No, I was thinking you should come to the convention with me, this weekend. Let them see you, and you can see them. Most of them are sweet, and smart. And they would love you.”

[War Hammer, Hand of Tobias]

Toby’s war hammer was one of the coolest things i got to work on.  it went through quite a few iterations,  and with a lot of help from Rustam Hasanov,  we finally ended up with what you see in the show.   as a fan of fantasy weapons I was really excited to work on this it brought me back to my days of obsessing over MMORPG weapons. 

you can see my process of concepting.  It initially started off as crystal on a pike,  and then after many rounds of notes.  eventually formed into a crystal surrounding a demon head statue. 

 Please watch Trollhunters on netflix if you havent checked it out yet.

“Sincerely, me” but every verb is replaced with the word “cronch”

SO MY FRIENDS @islandgirl5311, @fireferetsgem, AND I CREATED A GOOGLE DOC TO EDIT THIS.

anonymous asked:

Hi! I just finished reading The Secret History and conviently came across your tumblr. I can't decide if I liked the book or not. You seem to be the established expert on the book so I'm gonna go ahead and ask a few questions. First of all, Camilla's characterisation and descriptions made me dizzy. Is she actually very beautiful or is Richard attracted to her because of her resemblance to Charles and her overall boyish features?... Part 1

Part 2: Camilla is often compared to the great beauties of classical Greece but yet she is literally the opposite of the Greek notion of feminine beauty. Furthermore their obsession with the Greco-Roman world doesn’t especially make any sense considering if you were to put them into context of the worlds they were so obsessed with, wouldn’t they be considered the barbarians. None of them are Greek and are probably descended from the Gauls and Lombards who helped in the demise of Ancient Rome…

… and I find that to be a great irony. In my mind that highlights even more just how exclusively exclusive the classical world is. I don’t know, I would love for Donna tartt to not be so reclusive and talk about the book more!!


Alright, let’s see. I have talked over and over again about Camilla’s lack of grounded descriptions and characterisation; you can find most of the posts under her tag. I absolutely agree that Richard obsessive gaze is motivated by his unconscious desire for Charles; Camilla is so conveniently boyish, so delightfully close to her brother, and yet loving her is comfortably heteronormative. His confusion is particularly palpable when he describes his uneasy fantasies of incest; mingling and meshing the two not so much because he is aware of the unhealthiness of their relationship, but because through her body, he can more safely lust for him.

I don’t particularly remember Camilla being compared specifically to the great beauties of Ancient Greece. She’s compared to all mystical, legendary women who have spurred on chivalrous and distant passions; unattainable, ideal, reduced to a statue of marble. She’s The Medieval Lady. She is, incidentally, more often compared to medieval canons of beauty than classical, isn’t she? I might be wrong. In any case, in my opinion, it’s less about her being dark-haired or pale-haired, being skinny or plump; it’s about what she evokes for him. He loves literature; he is swept away by legends and tales and grandeur; he feels himself to a knight in shining armour; what he sees in her is not what she is,  but what she symbolises. When he perceives a glimpse of Clytemnestra in her, it’s about bloodshed and savagery, not about stature and lineaments. In turn she becomes a flower, a medieval painting, a greek goddess, a 20′s starlet, or a young boy. It’s about projecting, projecting, projecting.

And projecting they all do. They project their passion and their faraway understanding of the culture onto the actual classical world, yes. And I think the book is definitely a satire of niche academic worlds, among which classics, the elitism, the sexism, the cruelty. 

However, I don’t understand your accusation here. They are a bunch of awful people, snobbish and narcissistic and delusional, and of course extremely violent. But that they dare obsess and fantasise about the classical world is by no means problematic. What if they don’t descend from the Greeks? What if they would have been considered metics in Ancient Greece? What if they might “descen[d] from the Gauls and Lombards who helped in the demise of Ancient Rome? So they, or whoever, can’t be interested in an era that isn’t exactly related to their personal history? In another culture or another world or even an imaginary projection of that world? Their love for the classics is to me their only redeemable quality. The only door they open onto the outside world, the only broadness they allow in their world perspective. There’s no way to know if they got the culture they love right or if what they understand from it is complete fantasy; but in any case, their work and interest is a feat of passion and scholarliness and love, and I don’t see why it wouldn’t make sense. I sure won’t stop reading and learning and quoting ancient worlds and other cultures because I’m descended from Gauls and Romans, and surely won’t stop feeling close to, symbiotic with, Scotland under the pretext that I have nothing to do with the Picts. What’s ironic to me is how Henry-level close-minded that sounds.

  • I really need to sleep:
  • My brain: 
Dear Evan Hansen
We've been way too out of touch
Things have been crazy and it sucks that we don't talk that much
But I should tell you that I think of you each night
I rub my nipples and start moaning with delightWhy would you write thatI'm just trying to tell the truth You know what?
If you aren't going to take this seriously... Okay you need to calm yourself! This has to be perfect, okay? The emails have to prove that we were actually friends
They've got to be completely realistic There is nothing unrealistic about the love that one man feels for another Let's go back In fact, it's something quite beautiful Let's go back, Jared! I've gotta tell you life without you has been hard. Hard?Has been bad bad?
Has been rough Lame!
And I miss talking about life and other stuff
Very specific
Shut up 1like my parents
Who says that? I love my parents
But each day's another fight
If I stop smoking drugs then everything might be alright smoking drugs just fix it!
This isn't realistic at all!
It doesn't even sound like Connor!
Well I want to show that I was a good friend
Y'know? That I was trying to help him Oh my God if I stop smoking crack Crack?!
If I stop smoking pot then everything might be alright
I'll take your advice
I'll try to be more nice
I'll turn it around
Wait and see It’s all that it takes
Is a little reinvention
It’s easy to change if you give it your attention
All you gotta do is just believe you can be who you want to be
Sincerely, me Are we done yet?
Well I mean I can't just show them one email
Okay, please stop hyperventilating
I'm not hyperventilating
You're having considerable trouble breathing
I'm having no trouble breathing
Do you need a paper bag to breath into?
I'm not hyperventilating!
Dear Connor Murphy
Yes I've also missed our talks
Stop doing drugs
Just try to take deep breaths and go on walksNo
I'm sending pictures of the most amazing treesNo!
You'll be obsessed with all my forest expertise
Absolutely not
Dude, I'm proud of you
Just keep pushing through
You're turning around
  • I can see Just wait and see
It’s all that it takes
Is a little reinvention
It’s easy to change if you give it your attention
All you gotta do is just believe you can be who you want to be
Sincerely, me My sister's hot
What the hell? My bad Dear Evan Hansen Thanks for every note you send Dear Connor Murphy I'm just glad to be your friend Our friendship goes beyond Your average kind of bond But not because we're gay No, not because we're gay We're close, but not that way The only man that I love is my dad
Anxiety

Race has terrible anxiety and has a panic attack every time he gets a vague message from Spot. Davey convinces him to tell him the next time he sees him.


Race and Spot met through Davey. They became friends pretty quickly and it didn’t take long for them to start texting each other nightly, spending hours in their respective homes just laughing and smiling over whatever stupid thing the other had said.

This was fine for a little while, however, Race had a pretty severe case of anxiety and when Spot starting messaging him things like:

Spot Conlon: Can we talk?

Before launching into a long winded conversation about how much he loved snakes, it meant that Race had been sent spiralling into a major panic attack for no reason.

anonymous asked:

i can't believe i'm seeing johnny depp on my dashboard how can you even support someone who is a proved abuser???? what he did is absolutely DISGUSTING, you reblogging him and supporting him is DISGUSTING, how you can stand with him and hate on amber who is the victim is DISGUSTING open your eyes and go kill yourself you'll be doing us all a favor people like you are exactly the reason why victims are afraid to seek help

Oh for fuck’s sake. first of all, to everyone reading this, please unfollow me if you support amber heard and/or hate johnny. I’m honestly so tired of choosing my words carefully. I have been on here for more than 5 years and I couldn’t care less. the negativity on this site grows each year and I’m the one who’s disgusted. some people on here are so obsessed with political correctness they don’t even realize how judgemental they’ve actually become, and can see things only from one perspective. preaching about acceptance and equality yet when someone has different views, you attack them and tell them it would be best if they killed themselves. now that’s disgusting. telling someone to kill themselves is fucking VILE. you’re telling me i’m a bad person for supporting johnny yet here you are telling me such horrible things without a second thought. i don’t know man, to me, that’s a bit hypocritical, but who am I to judge. also, this is the only hateful message I am going to answer, so don’t even bother. I have deleted many and I’m going to keep doing so, it’s just that this one went too far and I couldn’t ignore it.

Anyway, this goes to everyone - I’m tired of people criticizing me and sending hate daily because I support him and reblog photos of him every now and then. I shouldn’t be ashamed of loving a celebrity who was never found guilty. the claims were all bloody false, and the charges are dropped. please don’t be so ignorant and actually try to dig a bit deeper into the whole situation. collect as much information as you possibly can. believing everything the media has to say is just so wrong. attacking people for defending a falsely accused man is wrong. oh and try to get rid of the idea that women are always the victims, and are incapable of being manipulative, abusive and deceitful. it is much more common than you’d think, and than tumblr wants you to believe. I would also like to point out that the one with actual abuse history in this whole story is, in fact, miss amber heard. I’ll leave you with a few posts from people who recently went a bit more in depth and have stated the facts much better than I ever could. thank you very much.  
  xx, x
