anonymous asked:

How is Misha so tanned all the time?? (he lives in Washington state? And is a native yankee New Englander? of northern European descent?) By all logic known to skin care he should be pale as fuck. It bothers me how un-pasty he is... (and it doesn't look like tanning bed tan either. It looks like he breaks fucking rocks in the sun all day.) one of the many Misha mysteries that will no doubt go unsolved.... #whyyousotanwhiteboy

Is he that tan tho? Maybe the people he’s standing next to are just really pale?

I’m considered the white one from my family but Misha looks almost the same as me here lol

Paul is just as erratic as Paulie are we forgetting he was totally comfortable going to f2 with him. PP was actually real for awhile. He has a descent social game but I’m not gonna ignore him showing us his true colors early on in the game.

SU THEORY: Rose Quartz

OK, so we all have noticed that Rose Quartz has ridiculous amounts of powers compared to other quartz’s. 

  • Healing Powers
  • Phytokenesis
  • Speed of descent regulation

Quartz’s like Amethyst and Jasper have their speed attack and strength at best. So, why is Rose Quartz so powerful. Well, consider:

Rose Quartz is one of a kind

Now before you start to get skeptical, think back to when the homeward gems and Bismuth talk about Rose Quartz. They never say “a Rose Quartz”. They always refer to her as Rose Quartz, like a name. Jasper and Eyeball Ruby, who were both present during the Rebellion never mentioned there being more than one Rose Quartz. 

So what does this all mean? Well, I think that Rose was supposed to be a specially designed Quartz for Pink Diamond, the first gem to be made on Earth. Like throwing a champagne bottle at a ship before it’s maiden voyage, Rose Quartz was made to be special to Earth. It would explain her affinity for plants and why she has more powers than the average gem. 

There is only one Rose Quartz

House Westerling - Honor, not Honors

One of the oldest houses in the region, the Westerlings claim descent from the First Men. The Westerlings were of old blood, but they had more pride than power. The Westerling mines had failed years ago, their best lands had been sold off or lost, and the Crag was more ruin than stronghold. A romantic ruin, though, jutting up so brave above the sea.

Sunburnt

Sandcastle battlements persuade

seaweed spatters to embark, teeth bleed,

when torrent sung sharks parade the dark, to graft.

Fin cascades, push blank shores like blades.

Choke reefs in tank drawers, inhale

the still kerosene gleans, flood and wade

the salt flat damages, persuade cliffs of greed,

then fuck in agitation, sunburnt complexions.

Sand spade splays, dive manmade plastic blades, this war

pledged fauna to grave. Salt taste divides push ores,

motioned past populations, ripples, flowered from electric ray waves,

drown starved. Poseidon averts his trident gaze to

pebbled tides, sifts water, watches dead, leisures to splash.

Head damages pleat to drawn curtain yawns, filled lungs withdraw,

driven winded in descent,

sun semantics reprieve the screensaver beach palms. Day

done currents swell to stays, 

wave pool ravages gash

drunk sharks, shadows in drawbridge

circles, eye battlements faded in the hour dry cement.

If you don't mind me asking, how tall is Koshiro (not the baby version of him tho!) compared to Keith and Shiro? 😁

Personally, I see him as being QUITE tall (for a person like him). You’ve got Shiro towering over all the others and imo, Keith isn’t all that short. He’s almost on par with Lance and Lance is one lanky dude. ALSO, if you accept the headcanon that Keith is Korean, you have a pretty good reason to believe Koshiro’s tall: Koreans are pretty much the stringbeans of Asia - they’re generally taller than other Asians. Shiro’s canon height + Keith’s hc Korean descent = humble taffy-pulled Koshiro. In comparison to Shiro and Keith, he stands in-between their height difference.

But here’s the thing: you don’t have to listen to me! You can come up with whatever height you want for him because honestly!! we sheith shippers share this lovekiddo. You can whip out the idea that he’s 6'2 and I’ll hit you back up with “YE S!!! OFC HIS MILK LOVING ASS IS 6'2”

You have to be living under a rock if you haven’t heard the name Simone Biles, the number one gymnast in the world and as of the 2016 olympicsthe greatest gymnast of all time. I’ve been a big fan of Simone’s since learning about her in 2014 but I’m a little more excited knowing America’s new sweetheart is of Haitian descent.

Simone Biles was too young to qualify for the 2012 Olympics, but the 4-foot-9 gymnast has completely dominated her sport since her senior debut in 2013. Not only is she the first female gymnast since 1974 to win four consecutive all-around titles at the U.S. national championships, but she’s also the first woman ever to be the all-around world champion three years in a row. Not to mention that she’s won fourteen total world championships medals—the most ever won by an American woman.

Simone Arianne Biles was born on March 14, 1997, in Columbus, Ohio. Her birth mother, Shanon Biles, was unable to care for Simone or her other children Ashley (seven years older than Simone), Tevin (five years older), and Adria (two years younger) due to her drug and alcohol addiction, and the children were in and out of foster care.

Simone’s birth father, Kelvin Clemons, also struggled with addictions. Shanon’s father, Ron Biles, and his second wife, Nellie Biles, who had two nearly-adult sons, Ron Jr. and Adam, began temporarily caring for Shanon’s children in 2000, in the north Houston suburb of Spring, Texas.

In 2003 the couple officially adopted the two youngest children, Simone and Adria, and Ron’s Biles sister, Jean, adopted the two eldest. Ron, Simone’s father, is originally from Haiti, and is a retired air traffic controller, and Nellie Cayetano, Simone’s mother, emigrated from Belize, and is the former co-owner of a chain of nursing homes.

“It is a wonderful thing,” Ron  said of foster care and adoption in an interview with USA Today. “It gives you the opportunity to enrich the life of yourself and the child, and enrich everyone who is involved in your life.” He added that “raising kids is just a wonderful thing,” and that he “can’t think of anything more satisfying.”

Simone Biles spent all her secondary education as a homeschooler and graduated in summer 2015. She verbally committed to UCLA on August 4, 2014, announcing her decision on Twitter. She planned to defer enrollment until after the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro. On July 29, 2015, she announced that she would turn professional, forfeiting her NCAA eligibility. Her sister Adria is also a gymnast.

President Obama show support of Team USA and Simone Biles!

Couldn’t be prouder of #TeamUSA. Your determination and passion inspired so many of us. You carried that flag high tonight, !

After winning five medals (four of them gold) at her Olympic debut, and becoming the most decorated gymnast in U.S. history, Simone Biles wrapped up what was arguably the most dominant performance by any Olympic gymnast. Her all-around win was the best relative to the competition during the open scoring era and she has the two biggest margins of victory on individual events.

The gymnast capped off her two weeks of Olympic domination by serving as the flag-bearer for the closing ceremony Sunday night. Though this wild Rio ride is winding down, it’s far from over for Biles and her team, who have a 36-city victory tour across the U.S., starting September 15.

No, you will not find a lot of articles talking about her Haitian heritage or mentions of her being Haitian-American but we thought it was great information to have and wanted to share with our readers.

The night of the unfortunate Haitian hurdler Jeffrey Julmis tumble at the start, we posted a video in support of him getting back up and finishing the race, Simone Biles showed her support of the tweet by liking our tweet on twitter.  In an effort to keep our Haitian athlete spirits up, we sent this screenshot along with many other inspiration tweets over to Jeffrey letting him know his courage to continue was supported around the world.
