Draw Yourself Challenge –– Ariel for fallenangel-destiel-wholock

Okay so this one was pretty challenging for me because the idea of a Muslim mermaid was different. It’d be hard to wear a hijab under the sea, I think? haha. So instead I took as more of… draw yourself in an outfit inspired by Ariel; I also took a less literal translation of “mermaid” by giving her a mermaid skirt lol.

To clarify the art:

  • I am a muslim girl (who wears a hijab) and I prefer to wear long/loose things that cover my body

I’m not thrilled by Jon’s answer to the question on TSN but I’m also not gonna knock him about it yet.

He’s probably under a mass amount of stress to answer in a way that didn’t piss off the hand that feeds him or the fans who would be listening and we have no idea what he knows or what anyone has told him to say or how to react or what to focus on; he was doing his job. So, okay. I’m sort of fine with it (not really but) it was a captain’s answer. I wish parts of it weren’t worded a certain way but it is what it is, I guess. Not thrilled but I understand.

I have a strong hunch that A is nothing more than part of MPC2. That has been S's total focus this week when he's not filming. Her website must be close to being done, she has been following a SM guru in NY to help her and "IF"he saw her, it was biz only!

Anon, I am not picking on you.  I truly am not.  But I am taking your ask to clarify my position which I’d like to make perfectly clear.

I don’t ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, think that Abbie was ever, ever, ever, Sam’s girlfriend.  EVER.  EVER.  NEVER.  I think she is a friend.  Plain and simple. Of the Amy Shiels variety.  Amy, who was seen in pictures sitting on Sam’s lap and being thrown around a pool.  A FRIEND.  Nothing more.  Sam does not segregate his friends by gender.  Surely everyone has seen that by now.

We have seen Abbie in Sam’s presence exactly one time and there was nothing sexual or romantic at all. He got out of a car in Monte Carlo and never looked back.  She could have fallen face first onto the pavement for all he knew.  She was not his focus. He never looked at nor touched her on the red carpet.  He strategically put his hands in his pocket when he was departing the red carpet, letting her go ahead of him into the car – two doors open in the limo – one for the front seat, one for the back.  There was a picture of them in a buffet line.  He went ahead of her.  That is NOT the way Sam Heughan would EVER, EVER, EVER, treat a girlfriend. 

He treats Cait with a delicate yet firm touch.  His face lights up when he looks at her.  He can’t NOT look at her.  Their eyes share secrets.  His touch is constant.  His admiration is evident. That is what a man in love looks like.

So please, please don’t share your thoughts about him and Abbie breaking up or entertain for one second the idea that any of the fiction you’re being told is true.  I guarantee you with everything I hold dear that this story is FICTION.

Aahh your emotions drawings actually really make me want to draw what its like in my head, too. (i hope you dont mind if i clarify that its crateris, i changed my URL yet again) It's a bit difficult to determine which is usually in control, though. My moods shift a lot.

Oh hey BOSS ASS SPAGHETTI SPAGHETTI SPAGHETTI SPAGHETTI

Anyway, yeah, my mood shifts a lot too but mostly anger is always there. Even when I’m happy, anger is slightly there and when I’m sad its also present.

Idk, somehow he always has his hands on the controls even if someone else is there.

anonymous asked:

do you think sherlock has ptsd in s3? I always thought that hearing john's voice in that 'how I did it by Jack the Ripper' part seemed like a ptsd response

I am unsure. Let me clarify.

Warning: this is long and might be considered triggering for some. 


First off: what is PTSD? 

PTSD is an anxiety disorder that can develop after a person is exposed to one or more traumatic events, such as major stress, sexual assault, warfare, or other threats on a person’s life. The diagnostic criteria for PTSD are:

  • Exposure to a stressful event or situation (either short or long lasting) of exceptionally threatening or catastrophic nature.
  • Persistent remembering or “reliving” the stressor by intrusive flash backs, vivid memories, recurring dreams, or by experiencing distress when exposed to circumstances resembling or associated with the stressor.
  • Actual or preferred avoidance of circumstances resembling or associated with the stressor.
  • Either (1) or (2):
  1. Inability to recall, either partially or completely, some important aspects of the period of exposure to the stressor
  2. Persistent symptoms of increased psychological sensitivity and arousal shown by any two of the following:
  • difficulty in falling or staying asleep
  • irritability or outbursts of anger
  • difficulty in concentrating
  • hyper-vigilance
  • exaggerated startle response.

When you look closely at this list, there are already several points which apply to Sherlock. 

  • Exposure to a stressful event or situation (either short or long lasting) of exceptionally threatening or catastrophic nature. 

This one is easy; Sherlock was tortured. He was beaten, deprived of his sleep, held by chains and verbally tormented. So that is a check in the box. 

  • Persistent remembering or “reliving” the stressor by intrusive flash backs, vivid memories, recurring dreams, or by experiencing distress when exposed to circumstances resembling or associated with the stressor.

We don’t know the answer to this one. We have no idea if Sherlock has flashbacks or nightmares or if he is triggered by certain sounds, smells or any other kind of sensory sensation.Question mark for that one. 

EDIT: Just realised that there is more than one stressor for Sherlock. How about Mary shooting him? He sees her in his mind palace, shooting him again, in her freaking wedding dress, when he tries to get to John. Of course that memory is still fresh, so there is no telling if that event will play a part in S4. 

  • Actual or preferred avoidance of circumstances resembling or associated with the stressor.

Now here it gets tricky. Personally, I agree with the statement that Sherlock is detached regarding what happened on the roof of St. Bart’s. We saw that he was visibly shaken from seeing Moriarty shooting himself in the head. We saw him cry. We saw him struggling with the fact that he had to say goodbye to John. When he relays these events to Anderson, that is gone. He is detached from it all. Flippant. ‘Look at me; wasn’t I clever?’. Of course, that can be contributed to the fact that it is Anderson he is talking to; he and Sherlock were never the best of pals and therefore they were not in the position to discuss the emotional stuff. 

But John… John doesn’t know. Yes, John knows Sherlock jumped for him, Greg and Mrs Hudson because there were snipers, but John doesn’t know what Sherlock went through those two years; John, no matter how difficult he might find it, will not keep quiet about it and try and talk to Sherlock about it, I believe. So I think it is safe to assume that John doesn’t know Sherlock was tortured at all. Sherlock hasn’t brought it up either. John tackled him to the ground and headbutted him and Sherlock did not give a peep, while earlier, in Mycroft’s office, he was visibly in pain. 

Ah, Mycroft. He tried to talk about it. ‘You got yourself in deep there with Baron Maupertius…’. Sherlock merely hummed in response. And that was it. Mycroft lets it go with an eye roll and a request for a sign of appreciation. Genuine, or a way to provide Sherlock which a change of subject? Knowing the Holmes brothers, we might never know. Let’s keep that as a question mark for now.

  • Inability to recall, either partially or completely, some important aspects of the period of exposure to the stressor.

Sherlock and not remembering anything. We know he has his system of deleting stuff from his ‘hard drive’ but somehow I don’t think he quite managed to delete that. So that is a no.

  • Persistent symptoms of increased psychological sensitivity and arousal shown by any two of the following:

Now here is where it gets really interesting. Take a look with me. 

  • difficulty in falling or staying asleep

‘You’re not usually awake.’ - Mrs Hudson, The Sign of Three. Nerves for the wedding? Or something else?

Sherlock also spent the night in a crack den - Janine’s comments in His Last Vow suggest that - either shooting up or already high. Not much rest there either I imagine. 

Other than that I don’t believe there is another hint at Sherlock’s sleeping patterns in S3.

  • irritability or outbursts of anger

Aha! There we are. Yes, Sherlock smiled more and seemed a bit softer around the edges, but by God, he was by no means a happy man in S3. He snarls at Mycroft in The Empty Hearse (’You sat there and watched me being beaten to a pulp!’) and he snaps at John in the train (’And a soldier, as you keep reminding us all’… ‘Why do think I know what to do?’… ‘I CAN’T!’). 

Not even to mention how he treats Mrs Hudson in The Sign of Three (’BISCUITS!’) and His Last Vow (’Then what exactly is the point of you?’). And what do you think about Mycroft’s and Sherlock’s psychical confrontation at Baker Street while Sherlock was high? True, that might be contributed to Sherlock’s substance abuse, but I’m putting it on there anyway. And have you seen Sherlock’s face in His Last Vow at Appledore?

That is a face of murder right there. So that is a definite yes right there. 

  • difficulty in concentrating

Everyone remember the speech in The Sign of Three? Yes? Good. No need to clarify then. A yes for that box.

  • hyper-vigilance

Haven’t seen that one explicitly come by. Feel free to point it out to me if you do. A no for now. 

  • exaggerated startle response.

I’m just gonna leave this here:

So, why then, I hear you ask, are you not sure? 

Because in the definition of PTSD, there is this little line: 

‘’… not present before exposure to the stressor…’’

And there is the clincher. Because Sherlock didn’t sleep well before The Reichenbach Fall. He was irritable and occasionally angry (The Hound of the Baskerville and A Study in Pink are shining examples of that). He was talking to John all the time when John wasn’t there with him so one can assume he heard John as well. Even saw him? 

Sherlock didn’t do sentiment and he didn’t care for feelings and emotions. He described himself as a sociopath, with the undertone that he was ‘above’ such things. 

We know the truth now. Sherlock did and does care. Deeply. 

Sherlock is S3 is softer, more emotional and sentimental and more vicious at the same time. But whether that is because he realises he is not alone in the world anymore (John, Mrs Hudson, Greg Lestrade, Molly, Mycroft) and allows himself to drop his sociopathic mask a bit, or is it PTSD? Are we starting to see the Sherlock that has been hiding in S1 and S2 or are we seeing a traumatised Sherlock? 

Maybe both?

Looking back on what I’ve just written, I think it is both.

i started DA:O at like midnight last night and ive got 18 hours played so far and let me tell you my butt is SO NUMB right now

i just want to clarify something

i know a lot of you probably thinks of me as someone who only knows how to write egosonic fanfiction but this is not the case. as much as i enjoy writing my egosonic masterpieces my true passion is actually writing poetry

more specifically poetry for the elderly

why only poetry for the elderly? because there’s already way too much poetry for children (despite the fact that most of them can’t name a single one of walt whitman’s poems or even recite the beginning of howl)

exeunt-pursued-by-a-bear asked:

is changing John Green's posts to say obscene/random things a meme?

One time, I asked my friend a yes-or-no question, and he said, “Short answer: no. Long answer: yes.”

I was so confused.

He then clarified, “’No’ is the short answer because ‘no’ only has two letters. ‘Yes’ is the long answer because ‘yes’ has three letters.”

Anyway, it’s sort of like that because if you look at it one way, it’s not a meme on its own. People have been changing the text of posts that they reblogged in random/humorous ways for years, so changing John Green’s posts is sort of part of this larger picture of changing text posts in general. But then, I guess, you could also see it as sort of a special case since John Green’s posts are specifically targeted, and it becomes part of this idea about attitudes toward John Green on Tumblr. 

came back to the apartment to find my roommates with friends in the living room doing some drinking game

they were very polite tho

and im p sure everyone who went to the game is now coming back drunk

hearing some peep go “whoohwoowhOOO” downstairs

PSA

Okay the post don’t open so I’m gonna write what I think here:

So, let’s clarify one thing first… this is not about a war between Harry and Louis stans… I can assure you most of Louis stans loves Harry equally, even more if they’re larries, it’s 2015, so, stop thinking in that way, we don’t hate Harry, we appreciate what he does, we are happy for him. But that doesn’t mean that we can’t have the right to be mad about the situation, that doesn’t mean we can’t blog about how we are feeling.. this is the reason why we create these blogs, because we wanna express what we’re thinking. This fandom need to learn to be a little more empathic, casually I was talking about this a few days ago and somebody said, “no, they just need to learn to be “nice to nice”” and NO, because that’s generic, you don’t get why are you being nice, you are just doing it because you have to and no… we need to learn to try to understand what the other people must be feeling and how do you might feel if someone go to your inbox insulting you or making a post about/indirecting you just because you don’t follow what the others think is the right thing to feel or support in that moment. That doesn’t make you any less “larrie”, that doesn’t make you hate the other half of the couple.

So if you wanna be mad… be mad, if you wanna scream and make tantrums do it!!!! If you wanna support Louis and say he’s fucking incredible while Harry is holding 8 rainbow flags, SUPPORT THE SHIT OUT OF THAT BOY, IT’S OKAY, we know that doesn’t make you love Harry any less if you do that. Do whatever you want to do, it’s your blog, it’s your safe place, don’t let ANYONE tells you how to blog. LET’S STOP THE BULLSHIT

“Guarding your heart and protecting your dignity are a little bit more important than clarifying the emotions of someone who’s only texting you back three words. I’ve learned that from trying to figure out people who don’t deserve to be figured out.”

Gunnerkrigg Musings: Metaphors that work

This is just going to be a short musing post this time, but there is something in the way Tom is telling this portion of the story that may not have been noticed by many people that I feel the need to point out.

First of all, I just want to clarify that Fire is Annie. Annie cut Fire out in order to deal with the onslaught of emotional turmoil that she faced when her father came back into the picture so suddenly, and she saw no way else to cope. For this post, though, I will be referring to them as “Fire” and “Annie”, just for simplicity’s sake.

Fire is Annie’s anger personified. It also represents Annie’s wild spirit, the part of her that connects to the Ether (a skill Annie has been very proud of honing), and a part of her that she is now physically repressing in order to cope with the situation around her. But let’s look at Fire’s design for a moment.

Fire is unmistakably Annie, there’s little doubt in that. Same haircut, same face-shape, and same body type. But there’s something else there.

Like Annie’s anger, Fire doesn’t have a mouth. She can’t interact with anything in the real world. Her eyes are shut. All she has are her flames around her that can’t burn anything.

Now, let’s look at Annie (human)’s new design, shall we?

Human Annie no longer has fer anger, or her make-up. She is wearing the same haircut that she has a child, a visible sign of her regression. She wears her mask to hide Fire (or her anger) toward the entire situation. She moulds herself to the childlike image she once had with her father, to mirror that bond she once had with him, so that she can believe that everything is not as bad as it once was.

She doesn’t want to feel angry because she is trying to convince herself that it’s not that bad. That she is acting like a fool for breaking down and she is “just trying to get used to things”. 

“You see? He had his reasons.”

Annie is not trying to convince Fire here. She is trying to convince two sides of herself that her father was completely justified in having abandoned her and for all the things he did. Because she sympathizes with him and wants that bond back. She is trying to convince Fire (anger) that everything has a reason and that she is overreacting. Because she is the one with the voice, and she is silencing her anger.

Even though a part of her, Fire, knows this is wrong.

Abuse victims do that.

Now granted, I’m not saying Anthony Carver isn’t a sympathetic character and he doesn’t care about Annie, but what I am saying is that he is in no shape to raise a child. Especially one with the trauma that Annie has. 

Annie is a victim of unintentional abuse. She is trying to justify her father, and his actions, and is trying to silence her anger so she can cope. The only words that come out of her mouth are defensive statements. 

Fire knows this is wrong, but is so repressed it cannot speak, or burn anything. All it can do is watch and grow more and more frustrated.

hey guys, me and sasxke-uchiha (the user ive been in drama with) have apologized to each other, and even tho we still dont share the same views, we have agreed that the drama was dumb and we arent gonna bother each other about it anymore, so that means if you guys have been sending them hate, please stop

also i want to clarify again that, despite my earlier suspicion, they are not the one behind the impostor blog, and i apologize for accusing them of that
