Could Nin have a lil bouquet 💐 as well? Or Rinna? :3

Why not both? I love all of your children. :D

Red and yellow chrysanthemums for Nindarhmen. These flowers bloom like fireworks, and are welcomed everywhere as symbols of celebrations, good cheer and optimism. There’s also an orange variety if Nin wants to hit ‘em with that good ole Orange Overwhelm tactic. Sunflowers for vivacity in life and a symbolic pursuit of the light, as they follow the sun. Lilies of the Valley for humility and sweetness.

For Rinna, dragon lilies as a sign of inner prowess, amaranth for the immortality of the Grey Wardens’ cause and for her own resilience, poppies for remembrance of the past, and wow this is a lot of red and yellow. Uh. Gladiolus for strength of character (also red…but it has other colors…if she likes…) and allow me to throw in the fictional Dragon Age’s vandal aria, one of the very few flowers which can still bloom in Blighted lands, for Rinna’s ability to move on and rebuild after being cast out from her old clan.

Did anyone order up some non-silly D.Va headcanon? No? Ah well, just leaving this here then.

Character Strengths and Related Flaws

So, we all know the drill. When you’re creating a character, you want them to be balanced. Your character should have both strengths and flaws. You’re not making a perfect person, nor are you making a complete monster.

However, sometimes you can find yourself just going for a random assemblage of flaws, as if picking them out of a hat. That’s one way to go about it, but I think the much better way is to look at the strengths you’ve given your character, and see what flaws may correspond to them, what characteristics are often found together. For example:


  • Definition: able to adjust to new conditions
  • Flaws: overly compliant, blindly obedient


  • Definition: willing to take risks or to try out new methods, ideas, or experiences
  • Flaws: rash, foolhardy, takes unnecessary risks

My All Female Justice League Line-Up. (Minus Mera obviously. And only because theres no footage of the Queen of Atlantis just yet.)

“Not even girls want to be girls so long as our feminine archetype lacks force, strength, and power. Not wanting to be girls, they don’t want to be tender, submissive, peace-loving as good women are. Women’s strong qualities have become despised because of their weakness. The obvious remedy is to create a feminine character with all the strength of Superman plus all the allure of a good and beautiful woman.”  -  William Moulton Marston 

The Wiccan’s Glossary

Amazonite is sometimes called ‘The Lucky Hope Stone’ as it aids in good luck aimed towards your hopes. Affirmation: “I can achieve anything I set my mind to.” It soothes and calms the soul, builds personal character and strength, and brings inner balance as well as balance in life. It is a lovely stone of teals and pale blues, appealing to the eye in both rough and polished form. It has a calming aura and encourages a state of deep ataraxia.

Amazonite is a great stone for sufferers of anxiety and people in stressful situations.

Elements - Earth
Chakra - Throat, Heart
Zodiac - Virgo
Planets -  Uranus

I can be changed by what happens to me. But I refuse to be reduced by it. - Maya Angelou

Hillary Clinton’s remarkably hopeful concession speech is the perfect illustration of how regardless of the election’s dire result, she has more strength of character, grace, and class than the man now known as President- Elect will ever have. She stood taller in defeat than Mr Trump will ever stand in victory. History will remember her as a true inspiration and role model, I doubt the same will be said for the 45th President of the United States of America.

Promise me you’ll always remember: You’re braver than you believe, and stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.
—  A.A. Milne

public perception of Mr. Darcy as the dashing hero to swoon over is like… so far from the socially awkward grumpy killjoy (but otherwise decent solid dude) he actually is. All these movies showing women picturing their perfect Mr. Darcy adoring them greatly misunderstands the source material and its fans.

You know who was charming and handsome? Wickham. The untrustworthy predatory douchebag. 

People who view Darcy as marriage material choose him for his strength of character and willingness to admit when he’s fucked up. His unfailing honesty. How much he fights for those he cares about. And maybe a little bit for his ownership of the Miserable Half of Derbyshire.


These are my babies, Heart the Metallic Doll and Clover the Wooden Doll

They were based on a cute yet eerie dream I had where tiny doll children had to fight to protect themselves. I found the dream really intriguing so I’ve been making a story out of it ever since then! 

And Here’s Superman! ☀️

‘’You will travel far my little Kal-El. But we will never leave you. Even in the face of our deaths. You will make my strength your own. You will see my life through your eyes as your life will be seen through mine. The son becomes the father, and the father, the - The son.’’

When it’s over I just want to be able to look in the mirror and say, ‘Well, you were a half-decent player.’
