did i do the thing right

You were so busy with whatever else you were doing that was more important than paying attention to me that you didn’t notice I was fading. I was breaking. Right in front of you too, but you must’ve not had your eyes open. Why? Why did you give up? There’s too many things to have hope for…to have faith in. What’s the point of giving up? And did you notice that one night when I seriously considered throwing away my life? Did you? I guess you were too busy.

Okay…but they like, live in the ‘burbs. They’ve probably had dinner/wine on the porch with their neighbors. (That’s what you ‘burbs people do, right? IDK) So sometime, after a run, Oliver comes back in and he’s like…


“Dave is grilling out tonight. He invited us over.”

“Dave?”

“From next door. Half of Dave and Allison. Remember?”

“Oh god, what did you say?”

“I said yes. What else was I supposed to say?”

“Oliver.”

“What? I’m sorry. But he’s really persuasive.”

“Do you not remember the last time we were over there?”

“Felicity…”

“They talked to us about babies for almost two hours.”

“Felicity…”

“Two hours, Oliver! And all I could do was steadily refill my wine glass, and you know that tipsy me and awkward conversations are not a good combination.”

“So, I’ll steer the conversation away from baby talk.”

“Do you promise?”

“I promise.”

“And what’s going to be your penance when you don’t?”

“Excuse me?”

“You gleefully joined in last time!”

“I enjoyed watching you turn that pretty shade of pink.”

“You’re incorrigible.”

“And then you turned that pink later on when I–”

“Okay, mister. You’re cut off.”

I can’t complain about it because I benefited from it. When I was in my early twenties, parts would be written for women in their fifties and I would get them. And now I’m in my early thirties and I’m like, ‘Why did that 24 year old get that part?’ I was that 24 year old once, I can’t be upset about it, it’s the way things are. All I can do right now is think that thankfully you have built up perhaps a little bit of cachet and can tell stories that interest you and if people go to see them you’ll be allowed to make more.

I'm watching catfa right now and just imagining, if Steve dies in cacw (for Bucky??), if Sam or Nat find Bucky somewhere and he's curled up alone, and they tell him, 'it's not your fault.' And he's like, 'you saw it happen, you know that's not true.' And whoever is there says 'you did everything you could, Bucky. He knew what he was doing. He must've thought you were worth it.' And no one alive anymore knows that Peggy once had to convince Steve the same thing of Bucky.

What do you think about the petition that Jelsa fans made to Jack Frost to appear in Frozen 2 as Elsa's love interest? Some fans even harassed the directors of the movie saying that if DreamWorks is crisis, they should buy it so Jelsa can be cannon. Do you ever though that Jelsa shippers could go this far? I don't think that Disney would accept this (Because of what Katzenberg did to them) but it really scares me

I.. didn’t know that that happened…

the whole thing is ridiculous and not even remotely a threat.. why would it scare you.. you know this would never happen right…this fandom is too wild

I will wait for bellarke and support the show if they really do the slow burn thing. Remember when Jason said that he likes a good story (build-up)? That’s why I still trust him… just don’t pull the “Totally forgot who you are. Bellamy who?” thing. That would destroy the entire plot for me and simply would make the 100 another gossip girl. If that does not happen I do trust Jason (weirdly) and believe that he has the best intentions for this show and fandom. Yes, we have our differences sometimes but after all he did give us bellarke in the first place and maybe if we give him credit and support for the show that is so much more than romance he’ll see that we are not teaming up against him or want to force him to do something that right now does not fit his idea of the show. 

I’ve tried for so long to accept my body, im still not 100% there yet. I accept it more than I did years ago. Im starting to realize be the weight you want and think is healthy for you not what others think is healthy. Be proud in your own skin and pick things you like about your body or features, not cutting them down. It’s a work in progress and im heading towards full confidence within myself and my body. Just remember do what’s right for YOU not others. #spreadbodypositivity

Hello I have a question, about cultural appropriation. What did Taylor Swift do in her video that was so bad? So whites can't go to africa? , also is it cultural appropriation for whites to own certain things like knives and guns? I hope I don't bother you.

Well, I can tell you right off the bat that it is definitely not appropriation to own a knife or a gun. (There’s a sentence that has never been written before.)

More to the point: your query can be answered by reading our article on the subject.

What are some of your favorite tadashixreader fics?

ALL OF THEM

Seriously, every single Tadashi X Reader fics I have read, I love to a certain extent. How could I not? :D

But I will throw out some recommendations because I am so addicted to reading them!

 I Will Always Be With You. It’s a two part one, but it also has a one-shot sequel to it. The first part is kinda funny kinda serious, but the second part will get you emotional. And if you don’t cry by the end of the sequel, I don’t know what could possibly make you cry. I’ve read through these parts at least 3 times now, and I always end up crying :’)

Heartbreak Cover-Up. This one is a bit of an emotional roller coaster, but it ends very sweetly. I personally think the reader semi-did the right thing semi-was crazy to do what they did, but it ends with fluff. :D

Pay Attention To Me!. This one is just purely adorable! I can’t even. I gotta say it now; (i had no doubt of this before I started reader Tadashi X Readers) Tadashi would be the sweetest boyfriend ever <3

Dreams Come True. I am addicted to nightmare fanfics. Especially in this fandom. And out of every Tadashi X Reader nightmare fic I have come across, this one in particular is my favorite. My heart just melts and it ends well so yay!

Wedding Bells. The title basically explains itself. *fangirling* 

Two Truths and a Lie. I hate this one. Okay, that’s a lie, I like it. BUT I HATE THAT I THOUGHT THIS ONE WAS GOING TO BE FUNNY. It starts off really cute and then it goes so downhill in feels and tears from then on omg. It’s touching, but omg I cried. 

There are so many more Tadashi X Reader fics out there and they are all so good and I usually end up either in tears or smiling like a dork. Or both. 

Gahhh, I love these fics. Tadashi is such a sweetie <33333

Write 30 - Change Your Writing Life

I’ve been in a bit of a slump lately, writing-wise. They always seem to creep up on you and, next thing you know, it’s been two months since you even cracked open Final Draft.

It’s pretty easy, at least for me, to get a) discouraged by a perceived lack of progress and b) get distracted by all the things I think I *should* be doing and not do anything.

On the TMI end of things, I was particularly in a funk a couple nights ago, just laying listlessly in bed staring at the ceiling thinking “what am I doing wrong, or not doing right, or just like, what haven’t I tried yet?”

It’s a complicated question but the most honest and direct answer is “I don’t write every day”. I did. For a while. But I haven’t. For a longer while. And the times when I have had a daily, rain or shine, treat it like your job writing habit, I’ve made progress and I’ve felt good.

I was talking this over with a friend who also is in a slump, and the idea came up to do something like a Whole 30, but for writing. If you’re not familiar with a Whole 30, you basically eat super clean for 30 days. There’s a lot of rules, but it boils down to no processed food, no sugar, no grains, just meat and veggies.

So I wanted to come up with the writing version of that. The purest expression of being a writer and putting that first for 30 days. Here’s what I came up with.

1) Write for 1 hour, every day, no exceptions, no cheat days.

Not when you feel like it, not when you’re inspired, but every day. Do the work.

You don’t have to write the same thing for 30 days, you can work on as many projects as you want (within the guidance of #5 below), but you do have to write. Every day.

2) Write without internet or other electronic distractions, by hand if possible.

Sit down with a legal pad or a comp book and just write. You can put it in the computer later. Turn off your phone. No TV. Just you and the page.

If you must use a computer (but I’m happy to talk your ear off about why hand-writing is better), turn off the wifi, close the browser, and put whatever writing software you’re using into full-scree, distraction free mode for one hour.

You can live without Facebook for one hour (he said to himself).

3) Read for 30 minutes each day. Not “the Internet”. Actual reading.

If you write screenplays, read screenplays. If you write fiction, read fiction. Read essays. Short stories. Novels. TV Pilots. Biographies.

No fucking thinkpieces.

Writers do two things: write, and read. 

As the master of horrifying productivity, Stephen King, says: “If you don’t have time to read, you don’t have the time (or the tools) to write. Simple as that.”

4) Let yourself off the hook for one project that you’ll never do.

We all have them. Those “I really should do…” projects. If you haven’t done it, if you haven’t even begun to do it, you probably don’t really want to do it, and it’s just taking up valuable brainspace and stressing you out. So drop it. You don’t have to write that novel if you really want to write short stories. You don’t have to write a screenplay if you really just want to be a sketch writer.

If you want to do a project, great. If you just think you should for some arbitrary reason, dump it. Take it off your list. Write something else.

5) Commit to writing the stories you want to tell.

Sort of hand-in-hand with number 4, don’t waste time writing something in these 30 days that isn’t something that really excites you. Put down anything you’re writing because you think it would sell, or because you think it could get you x, y, or z, and spend these 30 days only writing stuff that really speaks to you. That you want to tell people about.

6) (BONUS) Spend 10 minutes each day coming up with ideas.

A lot of people get hung up on the notion that you need one great idea, and that there’s a finite number of ideas out there in the world, and that only that truly great idea should be written.

It’s bullshit.

You’re a font of ideas. Especially if you’re reading and writing and paying attention to the world, you have more ideas in you than you will ever get to use.

Take 10 minutes every day and just write lists of ideas for things you could write later. They could be joke premises. Characters. Worlds. Loglines for movies. Short story ideas. They could be what if questions, like “What if Star Wars took place in a vast ocean?” or “What if I wrote every day?”

Put them all on a list, don’t worry if they’re good or bad, you’re just going for volume. Then later, revisit the list and see if anything good jumps out at you, and work on that for your next project.

This one’s optional. But they’re all optional, so do you.

So, my Write 30 starts today, 9/4/2015. If you want to join me, I’d love that. Keep me posted. I’ll post updates here along with my thoughts at the end of the month.

anonymous asked:

do you think zero knew that yuuki loved him before biting her in chapter 91 or that he thought she only loved kaname?

You mean chapter 92, sweetie? o:

I kinda don’t think he truly did, maybe he had an inkling since he did kiss her in chapter 87, but biting her and reading her emotions in chapter 92 really drove Zero to set things right, especially to be true to himself and push Yuuki to do the same since he wouldn’t have done any of what he did if he wasn’t sure about how Yuuki felt. c:

However, I believe Zero might have actually known Yuuki cared and loved for them both but just didn’t know the extent and biting her to gain his memories and finally seeing how she truly felt after over a year of drinking her blood truly helped to see who her heart truly wanted in the end. Especially since if she only loved Kaname, she would’ve done a lot more to get him to stay alive and they both wouldn’t have felt like they were at a impasse. 

I mean, the real reason Zero kept pushing Yuuki away was because he didn’t feel like he was right for her despite wanting her whole-heartedly. He was heavily drowning in denial but after seeing his mistake, he did everything he could to fix it unlike Kaname who couldn’t own up to anything he did wrong and decided the easy away out would be sacrificing himself. 

Anyways, i hope that answered your question, deary. c:

Going offline until Sunday or Monday… I have about 50 messages in my inbox right now but I really don’t have time to respond to them right now. 

A couple of them are saying there’s been too much drama though. I definitely have purposely made it be a lot and sort of repetitive, both for what I have planned for the rest of Part Two and also because as Taylor/Karlie become more frustrated with constant arguing, so do the readers lol. You’re sick of reading that shit and they’re sick of living it. I sort of did the same thing in Part One when they were quite back and forth between friendship and relationship until one final huge discussion. But ANYWAY, this chapter is definitely set up for a more permanent resolution so that I can write different aspects of the relationship and stuff.

Hannah,
I’m so sorry you were pushed to do things you were not ready to do. I know you are very upset, and the fact that you felt that you had no choice but to do this is saddening.
What you did was right and the best you could do for your baby. It was so brave of you.
I hope you have the time you need to process and relax and just be. I am sending lots of hugs (But only if you want them).

lots of love

anonymous asked:

Why do you think Chris didn't want the kiss filmed in the episode you saw being filmed--did you get the feeling he is nixing the MSR altogether?

Rehearsals are rehearsals for a reason - it’s the first take where they get to play a little. I imagine Gillian felt it was the right thing to do for Scully, in the moment–and when they discussed it after, Chris told her otherwise.

I absolutely think we’ll get kissing, and MSR. I don’t think he was nixing it, just maybe reigning in that moment

Interview with Twenty One Pilots

Josh on the left, Tyler on the right

Twenty One Pilots consists of Josh and Tyler, with Josh on the drums and Tyler singing/rapping.  Their new album Blurry Face has become extremely popular not only with its dedicated fan base, but also the mainstream music industry. On Sunday they performed at the VMAs with ASAP Rocky. While they were rehearsing a few days before, I got to talk to Josh from Twenty One Pilots about their music, inspirations, and buffets.

How did you two meet?

That’s a good question, a lot of times just because the way we met was kinda boring, we will make up lies or stories on how we met. But I’ll tell you the truth, we actually met through a mutual friend we both had. I remember I was working at a music store right when I graduated high school because it was kinda the thing where I didn’t know what to do but I knew I wanted to make music. So I was like, I guess working at a music store would be kinda cool because musicians come in there and I can meet them and play music with them. So a guy that I worked with came in and handed me a little demo CD burned on there, it was just a burned CD, and I popped it in and listened to it and it was some of Tyler’s demo stuff. I was like man I love this and I was actually invited out to one of Tyler’s first little shows. I loved it and afterwards we met and we were like lets hangout sometime. And I think it was two days later we hung out and that night we both just wanted to play music together. It was tough because at the time I was playing in a band and he was kinda playing in a band. So we were actually just friends for a year before we could start playing music together. But, I think that year was pretty important and crucial for the foundation of an actual friendship and relationship. It kinda just transitioned into a band. I think it worked out really cool.

So you didn’t start playing with Twenty One Pilots, but were you there for the formation of the band?

You know it’s kinda weird because Tyler was writing a bunch of songs and just having a couple of his friends perform with him. What happened was, I came in and started playing drums with Tyler and we had a bass player at the time. He played with us for about three or four months and then he quit for his own personal reasons.

Twenty One Pilots performing with ASAP Rocky at the 2015 VMAs

You are playing at the VMAs Sunday, is there a difference when performing in small or large venues?

Yeah absolutely. First of all, being on tour and playing shows every night- even those shows can be different even though it is the same stage set up and same kind of thing.  Each room is different and then there have been times when we have been the opening act for bigger bands and there’s a difference in those shows. And there is a difference between festivals. Festivals are more about trying to win people over. Not only that, but in some ways we subconsciously compete with other bands playing there which is fun. And then the VMAs is a whole other thing because if people come to a show, I think of it like a buffet. They can take their tray up there and choose whatever they want and they know they are going to like it because they chose it. But with the VMAs, it’s more like someone coming and just dropping something on your plate. You don’t know exactly what it’s going to be and there is a chance you may not like it. So, the weird part for us is that we are kinda being put on somebody’s plate not knowing if they are going to like it or not. They may take a bite and spit us out or they may love us and order us again. There is a broader audience and many people have probably never heard of us but hopefully some people like us.

When you are touring, do you have a routine to make it easier?

Yeah, you know, I think the past couple of years we have been traveling more and more to the point where we are never really home anymore. We only have a couple days at a time at home, so it obviously gets tough having to say bye to your friends and family all the time. But, there is so much about it that I love and everyday is kinda different being in a new city and in a new venue. So what I’ve found is that there can be some real structure within the chaos. And it can be the little things, like last tour we did, I took a longboard with me and I would just skate around the cities. I would also try to find a local coffee shop I liked and sit in there for a little while. And then even smaller things, like I would take the same candle with me and light that in the dressing room or hotel room. That was something that was constant and made me feel a little more at home. Just so it’s not as if I’m thrown into a whole new universe every single day without any sense of routine. So to answer your question, it is hard but I love it and I feel like I’ve found some ways to make it feel less disconnected and strange.

Josh on the left, Tyler on the right

As your fan base continues to grow, has that affected your style of music?

We just released our second album and it was interesting going through the writing and recording process just because it is definitely different than recording your first one. When you are recording your first one, you don’t really have anyone in mind that you are writing it for other than yourselves, and hopefully people in the future. The idea is we love this and we love what it feels like. So we hope that translates to other people. So going into the second one, we were kinda in the place where we had already developed a fan base. And not only that, but now we have more people involved like industry people, whether that’s label people, radio people, or even booking agents. People really like to just throw in their thoughts and their ideas which is great. With all that involvement, it’s kinda like we want to write songs that resonate with the people who have been your fans since the beginning, the people who are new fans, family, and you want it to be good for the label and radio. We really do want radio to accept some of this stuff. So just thinking about that can spin you around a little bit, like how are we going to approach this and what kind of songs should we write for this. But at the end of the day, what we kind of did was we sat down and talked about what we ultimately want to be listening to and playing for the next hopefully while. I think we just really went off of that and not to say we shut other people’s opinions out but it is hard to take so many of them at a time. So we were just like what do we want to do and how can that possibly translate to a broader audience. I think it affected the album a little bit but these songs are written by us and we took songs in directions we really wanted them to go. So far, playing some of these songs have been the most fun to play in my life. It has just been a blast.

What are your favorite musicians?

There is a list that goes on and on. But when I started playing music it was weird because I would obsessively sit online and just browse random videos on Youtube and what I found is that I would gather inspiration from drummers for sure. But, I would also gather information from front men or lead guitarists or even actors in movies some times. I’ll be like, ‘He’s cool, I like his vibe and I think I could incorporate some of that into my performances.’ So really a couple off the top of my head would not give a good representation of where I have really gathered my influence or style. There are a lot, I guess what I can tell you is that I never really thought about the drums until I watched a couple videos of a guy named Buddy Rich playing drums. And that is what for me was like I would at least like to try that. That kind of began the whole journey.

anonymous asked:

Can I ask for some advice? I laid out all the ways this white friend was racist to me for her, and she gave me a flippant one sentence apology. We stopped being friends obviously, but months have gone by and I know one of my white friends still talks to her somewhat regularly (knowing what happened and how flippant she was.) It bothers me, but I know I can't dictate who my friends are friends with. What should I do? :/ Am I wrong to be bothered by this?

I think you did the right thing. Unfortunately your friend is choosing her racism over your friendship. And it takes two people to make a friendship successful. Mourn your loss and move on. There’s nothing else you can do. There are other people out there who will respect you and choose your comfort and safety and friendship over racism.

my pet peeve of roleplaying on neopets was that people had a weird tendency to undermine things you said… 😭😭 like for example, if my character said ‘i love how cool the weather is today’, someone would make their character say 'what are you talking about? it’s 100 degrees’…… or like, my character would be staring out a window, and some fucker would say 'why are you staring at the wall right there? there’s no windows in here’ i would get soooo mad cause like. WHY NOT JUST PLAY ALONG… why did you gotta do this to me, god damn , 😭
