damn why is there a limit

I was wondering why Overwatch skipped Valentines day, but then I realized...

When you look at the runaway train that is the Voltron fandom right now

When you look at everything SU shippers have done in the past, including but not limited to: driving some people to try and take their own lives and chasing some of the artists of the show off tumblr on the grounds of ‘queerbaiting’

When you look at how seriously this damn website takes the relationships of two fictional characters and the lengths they will go to to justify their own view and shut down others, even if it’s the very creators of the content they love

Is it any fucking wonder why Blizzard took one look at Valentines Day and said 'Yeah, we’re skipping that’

Play With Me (Vernon/Hansol Smut)

Summary: It’s not your fault that he was just so pretty. And that he begged so prettily. And that he looked so damn pretty with a piece of leather wrapped around his throat. Why did being Seventeen’s stylist mean he was off limits? And to think, this all started on a boring night with a gifted bottle of wine a pile of jenga blocks. Smut.

(A/N: I must say that I got a little carried away. The original request from @ciels-parents did not entail anywhere near as much shit as this. But I’m pleased with the outcome. I guess the reason I added all the other stuff is because one of my favourite things about dom/sub relationships is all the pretty things, like the toys and the lingerie and shit. I could be a little just for that. But that’s waaay off topic. There’s so many warnings here; anal play, rimming mention, noona kink, sex toy(s), collaring, lingerie, subspace, praise kink, if that even counts as a warning?? but okay this is ten thousand words of impure filth so please back down if you’re not ready. I would also like to put forth now that I’m not responsible for any of the after effects of this fic, and happy valentine’s day, this is my present to you. -Tanisha<3)

You were, at best, a glorified babysitter. It was the only way to describe the current state of your job without leaving out any of the details. Somehow, you had started out as what you fully intended to be - a stylist. Straight out of high school you jumped head first into a fashion program, gaining all the sewing, finance, pattern making, fabric skills and whatever else you could have ever dreamed of.

Generation of Miracles (- Kuroko + Kagami) reacting to meeting Hanamiya and being reluctant at introducing their s/o 'cause he's a jerk, but Hanamiya starts to act all nice toward them 'cause they think they're cute. And in the end the s/o comments "I don't see why you speak so badly of that guy, he seems nice!". (Poor guys, lol!)

Long time no see! How has everyone been :)?


Kise - Kise’s eyes roll impossibly back as he watches you laugh at something Hanamiya says. He was hoping the meeting would just be a quick hello and goodbye, but no, apparently Hanamiya was hilarious. Really, really damn hilarious. Kise glares at his newly declared rival while he induces you in another laughing fit.

After a short 5 minutes, Kise’s at his limit. He interrupts Hanamiya’s next sentence with an obnoxious fake laugh. “Okay, well, we’d love to stay but we’ve got a date to go on, right ____-cchi?”

Kise’s annoyance grows even deeper upon seeing you and Hanamiya share an amused look at his weird behaviour. You quickly wave bye to Hanamiya as your boyfriend pulls you away. He gives you a wink in return and your face flushes. You turn to Kise and talk him directly for the first time in a while.

“I know you talk pretty badly about him, but I actually think tha-,”

Don’t even start”.

Akashi - If Akashi had it his way, he’d protect his sweet girlfriend from ever having to meet Hanamiya. This was virtually impossible in his current situation, where Rakuzan and Kirisaki Daichi were about to have their first match against each other. Akashi stepped away from you for just a moment, leaving a perfect opening for Kirisaki’s captain to slither in.

“I don’t think I’ve ever had the pleasure of meeting Rakuzan’s lovely manager,” he introduced himself in a overly sweet tone. His acting worked, and you found yourself fairly flustered at his words. Hanamiya kept up his facade very well, convincing you that he was perfectly nice, despite what you’ve heard about him.

The conversation was cut short when Akashi appeared behind you, grabbing your hand gently and leading you away, but not without a polite smile towards Hanamiya. You give Hanamiya an apologetic look, who responds with a playful smile and a wink.

“Good luck to you and your team!” you call out.

“Thanks cutie, we’ll talk more after the game!” he responds.

Akashi stops in his tracks. He takes a deep breath for composure and clenches his fist tightly.

“I promise you, luck can’t save him now…”

Murasakibara - Hanamiya didn’t have the physical advantage over Murasakibara, but having no shame in blatantly hitting on his girlfriend right in front of him, he had other advantages. His ability to put on a fake charm, for one. The two of you were hitting it off fairly well, until Murasakibara cuts in and scares Hanamiya off.

“Atsushi, that wasn’t very nice,” you begin.

“I’m not the one who isn’t nice,” he says defensively. “And you shouldn’t like mean people, because if they hurt you, I’d have to crush them”.

Aomine -  Aomine was too lazy to intervene on you and Hanamiya’s conversation, which was getting flirtier by the moment. Hanamiya was getting dangerously close to you, and usually, this would be Aomine’s cue to jump in, as his blood began to boil with anger, but instead he turned away from the sight of Hanamiya moving in, and came up with a new plan.

He decided he would annoy you instead. As expected, you eventually came running up behind him.

“Why’d you just leave like that?” you ask.

He shrugged. “I don’t know, ask your new boyfriend maybe?”

You roll your eyes, reaching to hold his hand, which he swiftly dodges. “I don’t think your new boyfriend would like that very much,” he says. You continue to follow him like a puppy, begging for attention, and Aomine sees his plan worked nicely.

Kagami - You wave bye to Hanamiya as he jogs back over to his side of the court. You walk back over to your boyfriend, who made sure to keep an eye on the two of you, mostly him, as you talked.

The way Kagami talked about him, you thought he would be completely awful, but you couldn’t help but find him nice. You approach Kagami, ready to tell him about your new friend.

“And he said he really loves playing basketball with you. Isn’t he nice? I like him!” you gush.

Kagami is completely baffled by this. “Y-you what? What do you mean like him?! That’s a joke right? No way you’re serious, haven’t I told you what he’s done?!”

Unintentionally, you set Kagami off on a never ending rant about Hanamiya, where he made sure to recount the every detail of his evil schemes.

Midorima - Midorima shifts awkwardly as he stands there, listening to you and Hanamiya’s conversation. Unlucky for him, you two just happened to run into Hanamiya on the street. He feels out of place, like he’s the third wheel between the three of you. Hanamiya feeds off your laughter, which you’re clearly happy to give. At every slight break in the conversation, Midorima tries speaking up, but gets strategically cut off by Hanamiya every time.

Soon enough, Midorima reaches his limit, and takes it upon himself to put an end to the conversation. “____, we have some place to be. We’re going now,” he says firmly. He begins walking away on his own, trusting that you’ll follow. And you do, but not before Hanamiya slips his number in your handbag for your to find later.

Just as you were about to comment on how nice Hanamiya was, Midorima speaks up.

“His sign is ranked first today. That’s the only reason he was able to convince you that he was a nice person” Midorima scoffs.

“Aww, Shin-chan, you’re not jealous are you?” you tease.

He doesn’t dignify your question with a verbal response, which gives you the answer anyway.

So today in my Theatre course, my professor asked us to select our favorite actor and write a short essay about what made them good actors and how we knew that we were watching good acting. I couldn’t choose just one, so I went ahead and picked both the J’s. The essay is a little rushed (I could’ve gone on for PAGES but there is a limit to how much over the requirement that she’d allow), but I figure it’s decent enough to post on my blog. It’s related to Supernatural kinda, right? I’m gonna tag @sammichgirl, @purgatoan, @gothpandawincest, and @they-call-me-winchester because they got to listen to my whining about this damn thing and gave me some advice and useful words. Thanks guys! <3


I don’t have just one favorite actor to list for this question, but there’s a reason why. The two that come to mind are Jensen Ackles and Jared Padalecki. Though neither has an extensive filmography, they have been playing opposite one another for twelve seasons of the same program (Supernatural). Ackles does have stage experience – starring in the stage version of a Few Good Men a number of years ago. They both have also played roles in various television programs and films, all with a high rate of popularity.

Though they have been the same character (brothers) for this time, over the course of these years they have both played various versions of their characters. Ackles has played as his main character (Dean), a future, militaristic version of Dean, Lucifer, a shapeshifter, a mythological monster (Leviathan), a version of Dean in Purgatory, a vampire, a demon, a businessman version, and a cursed version. Padalecki has played his main character (Sam), Lucifer, an angel, a mythological monster (Leviathan), a demon/possessed, a businessman version, an alternate universe version, soulless, a teenager, and an addict.

Each of these versions were highly separate from one another and required a different skillset (as many times both actors played multiple versions within the same episode or even scene (for example when Padalecki was possessed by the angel, he would shift between his ‘normal’ self and the angelic version.)

Regarding being poly: I'm LGBT and I'm also poly and while being poly HAS put me in some very weird, shitty situations and my identity is basically constantly erased/demonized by society, it doesn't fucking compare to being LGBT. Even more so, there are plenty of instances of institutionalised oppression against poly people, and yet we accept that it doesn't make us LGBT. Why is it so hard for cishet aces to accept that and make their own damn community like poly people did

because then that would be admitting that they have to put in some work instead of demanding our limited resources

I hate to say it. I think I’m becoming a Volks snob in some ways. I’d never tell anyone I didn’t like their doll or style, but now that I own a few Volks resins, I can see why there ARE Volks snobs; the resin has solid weight to it, their sculpts are beautiful, and their clothing is the nicest quality I’ve ever seen. I’ll still collect other dolls, but damn you Volks for making most of the sculpts I’d want so limited!

Frankly, almost all of the most powerful and impressive magic we see comes from the people Merlin is fighting. Mary Collins can fucking teleport!! Why didn’t Merlin ever look into that? It’d be pretty damn useful!

We’re told that Merlin is “the most powerful sorcerer ever to walk the earth,” but we don’t see it.

The thing is, I think magic should seem easy, but it shouldn’t BE easy. (This is a problem I have with Harry Potter magic.) There need to be limitations and rules to it, consistency, logic, effort, otherwise it isn’t as impressive as it is confusing, redundant, and out-of-place. If magic is so strong, how the hell did Uther’s Purge succeed?

Based on the general structure they gave us, it would make much more sense if, like, 80-90% of sorcerers could enchant objects, light fires, or move (mostly small) things. They could work spells into objects to do things like keep knives sharp, help food last longer, keep boots from getting soaked all the way through. Sigils around their homes to ward away thieves. Small things that make their lives a bit easier, their businesses more successful.

And, of course, the street-vendor kind of shoddy magic, like love spells and lucky charms that are kind of vague and not likely to work as advertised, because the seller just made it sparkle a bit to make it look impressive enough to catch a passerby’s attention.

There would be specialists in healing, cooking, woodworking, combat, and everything else, with apprenticeships, and techniques better suited to one purpose or another. “Family spells” passed down through generations like a secret recipe. And particular kinds of magic, like a seer’s power or the kinship between Dragonlords and dragons.

But, any of that would take a heavy toll on their energy. They’d rely heavily on magical objects, potions, spells, crystals, and other physical conduits. They wouldn’t be able to magically multi-task, or would only be able to do a couple small spells at a time. It would take much more concentration and practice to get it right, too. They’d need a lot of training to be considered more than a hedgewitch, and their “power” would be their depth of knowledge and their skill in practice, their wisdom, not their “natural talents.”

Only people with a lot of natural access to magic and a good deal of practice / training would be able to do things like teleport, raise the dead, shapeshift, create shields, conjure fireballs, control minds, summon objects / creatures / people, and so on—and any objects that could allow someone less powerful to do so would be extremely expensive and valuable. There’d be a range of quality, too, like higher-quality spells would last longer and work better, whereas weak ones would be short-lived and only partially or irregularly effective.  

The stronger you are, the less you have to worry about those limitations, because you have easier access to more magic. But it still takes work, and self-discipline, because even people who could access their magic without initial training (like Morgana) can’t control it without patience and practice. Untrained people with powerful magic would be unpredictable, and sometimes dangerous, until they found someone to help them, or managed to figure it out on their own.

That’s what (or one thing that) makes Merlin such an anomaly; not only could he instinctively access magic since he was a baby, he has precise control over what he can do. When he first encountered Gaius and saved him from falling, Merlin slowed time and positioned a bed to catch him without even really thinking about it. All without any training whatsoever.

(Which is why it’s so damn frustrating that something he did in the first episode seems to be one of his most unique, impressive, and powerful displays of magic throughout the entire rest of the series, even though he’s supposed to be getting much stronger and gaining even more control over his abilities.)

Tamora Pierce, one of my favorite authors, portrays magic as natural energy that is unique to and a part of each individual. Such an intrinsic part of you that it’s actually dangerous for magic users to overextend themselves. People who attempt spells beyond their power or abilities of control, who don’t have the necessary self-discipline, wouldn’t just fail to complete the spell or make it work. When their magical energy is depleted, the spell begins using their life energy. If they can’t cut themselves off from the spell, they’ll die, and even if they do manage to survive, they’ll be physically ill until their magic naturally replenishes.

I love that. It doesn’t really fit with Merlin canon events, but I think it would make sense within the framework, especially as an even sharper contradiction to Uther’s declaration of magic as unnatural evil. And a significant portion of Camelot’s population could have magic that they just don’t know about, because it isn’t quite powerful enough to manifest on its own—but there would be some who can’t control it, and would have no way to hide it.

So Uther could teach that magic is a choice, that it must be learned—and it would be true for most people, but not all. And if, leading up to the Purge, magic was so unregulated that black magic and magic-related violence was common and widespread, it’d be easy to convince people that it was evil, too.

People like Morgana, Morgause, Nimueh, and Mordred would be leagues ahead of the other foes Merlin faces throughout the series—including people like Mary Collins or Edwin Muirden, who would need to use small magic in a smart way.

And Merlin would be leagues ahead of all of them, with a huge range of very specific spells at his disposal along with his instinctive magic, which he’d be able to use more comfortably, easily, and precisely than he ever could before, because he intuitively learns how spells and objects serve as focus points to concentrate and direct magic. From there, he’d be able to improvise with his magic outside of spells, relying on both his instincts and the new methods and techniques he learned.

But it still wouldn’t be easy. He has moral and other limitations that his enemies don’t. He has weaknesses and flaws. Magic has its weaknesses and limitations. And, of course: “The heroes have to win every time. The villain only has to win once.”

With this structure, I think it’d be less formulaic, more dramatic, and clearer to see the differences in power, knowledge, and skill between various kinds of magic users and differences in magic itself. The years of hard physical training a knight has to endure wouldn’t be devalued by magic, because magic requires years of hard mental (and sometimes physical as well) training, with its own challenges and dangers.

The series-arc villains would be more of a threat, but episodic antagonists would each pose a different kind of challenge that forces Merlin to adapt to new situations and learn new things about magic and how it works and how to use it. Skills that he can build on and apply in later situations, not just specific one-time counter-spells or constantly recycled solutions (cough dragoon cough).

I could go on and on about possible power variations and other differences between magical creatures, cultures, public / religious figures, spells, styles, natures, techniques….

Seriously, if you wanna start a conversation, all you have to do is talk magic to me.

Right for a right, wrong for a wrong,
This is clearly not life’s design.
Figure out quickly that nothing gets answered
When you ask the universe why.
Life is a journey, to live is to worry,
To love is to lose your damn mind.
But living’s a blessing so I am not stressing
‘Cause some of my friends ain’t survived.
Death’s a release but a much bigger beast
Is a living on limited time.
Like how do you look in the eyes of a friend
And not cry when you know that they’re dying?
How do you feel 'bout yourself when you know that
Sometimes you had wished they were gone?
Not because you didn’t love 'em,
But just because you felt too weak to be strong.

Thoughts at 240pm...

Raise your hand if you have been online since the Compuserv/Aol/Prodigy day…

Ok, all of you are old.

And thats ok, I’m old too.

The reason I bring this up is the fact that I remember that back in the day, when the internet was first getting off the ground, we had TOS’s with our ISP’s that they were pretty damn serious about. Get into a flame war? Someone would write abuse@isp.com and you’d definitely get a warning or two then banned!

why can’t we bring that back for unsolicited dick pics, hate speech and all of the other bs?

Why can’t if someone sends you a dick pic, you press block and it also bans them from tumblr and notifies their ISP of their bullshit???

High speed internet is limited in most areas, you only have a choice of 2 or 3 …. be a jerk enough and you’ll end up on fucking dial up again!

We need this.
