do good and good will come to you

My heart romanticizes people far too often. This only leads to disappointment. The amazing thing about God, is that His goodness is constant and does not fail. You see, when we romanticize people, we build up these expectations of them and when they do not come through for us, we feel disappointed because in our minds, they’re something else. When we think of God’s power, and grace, and goodness, it all exists. It’s real. We can have these ideas about God because He actually is all of these things. Lord, help us to keep our minds and hearts set on Your goodness, for it is the only truth!

Friendly reminder to take time to figure out what you want to do in life

Coming from someone who fucked up


So I had no idea what I wanted to do in life. Art? Yeah probably. I was pressured to go to a good college, so I did. And it wasn’t until my second year that I started having a good idea of what I wanted to do. And that that college, didn’t offer what I wanted.

Now I’m $18,000 in dept due to peer pressure and wasted 2 years of my life struggling through private college classes, having my depression skyrocket, and now scrambling to figure things out.

Just, take your time okay? Experiment. Don’t rush it. If the average life span is 80 years, you can afford to take one after high school to just, breathe, and try everything. Make a plush. Bake a 2 tier cake. Try writing a song, or learning one first. Write a short story. Carve wood. Grow plants. Build a planter for said plants with scrap wood.

Just, breathe. Figure out who you are, what you like doing.

Kiss and Tell

So one time Anna and her friend Jo got a little smashed, and were talking about how Anna could use some extra money for something or other, they come up with a Great Idea–’the best thing to do is to take something you’re already good at and you like doing, right, and turn that into a money maker!’ Jo says, because Jo is a designer who has a good side business making websites for small businesses. ‘What are you really really good at, Anna?’

Well, Anna decides that the thing she’s BEST at is kissing. She is a great kisser. And when she wakes up in the morning with a headache, she realizes that while they were drunk they somehow made a website (thanks, Jo, for having a handy template website always ready to go), advertising Anna’s School of Kissing, Improve Your Liplock in Ten Days, and the website is live, and she already has a client booked. 

Because, oh yeah, Kristoff was drinking with HIS best friend Sven, who was grilling him about why he’s single, and at some point Sven made up his mind that the problem was Kristoff’s lip-service ifyouknowwhatImean, and as luck would have it he drunk-googled ‘kissing lessons’ in time to hit on Anna’s new website, signed up his friend, paid in advance. 

And Anna could return the money and explain, but…she really needed the money. And Kristoff could refuse to go, but somehow he just doesn’t, and he ends up going to the lesson. 

Later when people ask ‘so how did you two meet’ the answer is always ‘oh, you know. We were study partners.’

man, i have a rlly cute drarry fic idea in my head based on No reply by the Beatles, but my writing skills are -710 and english isn’t even my first language— do you have any tips on how to Start?

now I am so certain your writing skills aren’t -710!!! That would be worse than my immortal! Where to start - well, if it were me, I’d start with my favourite part of writing - the dialogue. I always do that when I’m procrastinating or just unmotivated and then the rest comes later. 

Otherwise I guess most of my fics start inside the head of one of the characters. It’s kind of cheap but an easy way to set the scene and sprinkle in some exposition. Now you know my secrets.

I’m not really good with tips, sorry!

No reply does sound like a good inspiration for a drarry fic though. Good luck! :) 📝❤️❕😀

spoopysalt  asked:

Heyyy, I am a HUGE fan of your work (like ur writing is part of what got me SO sucked into stony) and I'm writing what is looking to be a VERY lengthy fic and was wondering if you could give me some advice for keeping characters ic? I really wanna do a good job on this your writing is just so amazing

Hey! First of all, thank you! It’s lovely to know that you put my work at a high enough standard to come to me for help lmao.

As for your question, though, I’m particularly sure I can offer much help? I don’t tend to actively take steps to keep good characterisation- and if what you’re writing is, say, an AU, then sometimes your characters are gonna have slightly different personalities anyway? I know people have this Super Uptight approach on good characterisation, but I mean- I read mafia au’s where Steve will be a mob boss and shoot people every day. It’s not exactly ‘good characterisation’ of Steve, ‘cause we know he’d never do that stuff, but it sure is a damn good fic. Sometimes character continuity isn’t everything!

That being said- obviously, in some instances characterisation that’s accurate is important. I think a big part of it is having a good understanding of the character you’re writing for. Honestly, that’s mostly the only thing I can give you. Being able to know the character you’re writing for inside out is hugely important. Think of them doing something/ saying something in your head. Does it sound right coming from them? Or does it feel too vulnerable/ too macho/ too passive etc.

If you don’t have that, then I could suggest doing some research first. Meta. Character analysis. That sort of thing. Get their basics down, and then you can pretty much work with the rest. I think at the end of the day it’s not really about specific words or actions your character does, but their consistent traits throughout. If readers get the General Vibe that the character is /too much of ‘X’/ through the whole thing, then it will be worse than just a few sentences. You need to make sure your characters stick to their moral code and base features more than anything. Sarcasm, emotional constipation, abandonment issues etc. You can just add those comments or observations into the fic if you forget to put them in in the beginning, because they’re pretty easy to insert, and it’ll bring the whole thing together a little better.

Hope that helped!

Any chance you'd do a 5 color removal package?

I mean, just take the best from what I posted.

Swords, Reality Shift, Downfall, Chaos Warp, Song, and then throw in some good multicolored removal. Terminate and Vindicate are the first to come to mind, with those color combinations (Rakdos and Orzhov) being pretty exceptional at removal overall (in fact they’re practically the best).

@blogging-phelddagrif did a series called “What Removal Should I Run” that went through all of the best removal spells available to each color and color combination, so that would be a good place to start.

News…

Today @omgitsmelodyrose rose and I were eating our breakfast and getting ready to go, when my phone rings…


*not registered number *


- “Good morning, is this Alorak Cobbs?”

- “Yes it’s me…” - my voice sounds shaky.

- “This is from Good Samaritan Hospital, we need you to come…”


Mel was if front of me waiting anxiously, asking me what was going on, my hands started shaking.

- “Sure I’m on my way, thanks…” last words were like a whisper.


Mel grabbed me by my shoulders, asking me but all I was able to do was tell her, we need to go now. We grabbed our stuff and run out, I asked for a taxi, I didn’t had time to wait for Adam & Owen (the two guys who were Assigned for my security).



***


We arrived like in 15 min, traffic was light in the morning.


We run, took the elevator and registered on the nurse counter of the ICU on the 5th floor of the Good Samaritan Hospital on Cali. Feeling my heart on my throat.


They make us pass to the Dr. Myers’ office.


- “Good morning Miss Alorak”

- “Good morning Dr. Myers, please tell me what’s going on?” - my eyes where wide open & Mel was holding my hand.

- “ well Ashton this morning had really high temperatures, so we are making many exams, and the results says he have meningitis…”

- “Oh God… it is so bad, right?”

- “Well it can make the rehabilitation process more difficult but the good thing it’s we discovered it just in time , so we started by giving him antibiotics on high doses to attack it as fast as we can.”


It was enough to hold, I stared crying uncontrollably and Mel just hugged me and stared crying with me.


- “He’s a strong guy Ally, we will make it, we know that, he will beat his ass…”

- “ sure he will Mel, he better…”


After that we passed quick one by one to his room, he was there with tubes and lines all around his body and too many machines around his bed. It’s so hard to see your loved one there like that.

I get close to his ear and told him:

- “Hey @ashton-yourbodyguard dyguard, you better come back with us… we have a lot more things to discover together, you know that right?” - kissed his forehead and leave.


We can’t stay at the hospital because he was on a critical stage, so we decided to go to a small café near the hospital and there I called the guys.

Change is scary. Sometimes I just want everything to stay the same. But of course, that is simply impossible in life and change can actually be good. Meeting new people, doing things you may never have done before; it’s all beneficial. So we should take these chances and don’t be scared. Good things are coming.

anonymous asked:

For a spoopy imagine: Kaito and Shuichi with a male s/o, and Kaede and Miu with a female s/o. The characters convince their s/o who is easily scared to watch scary movies with them! And then shortly after the movie, a noise is heard in the other room, what do they do?

I an not very good with scary movies, myself… I hope this was what you wanted! ~ Mod Iruma

Kaito and Shuichi with a male s/o

  • Kaito did most of the convincing, but it kind of ended up like good cop/bad cop
  • “Come on! Movie night! I haven’t seen this one! Please s/o!”
  • “Kaito… maybe we shouldn’t push him.”
  • “I just really wanna watch this movie with my two favourite people! Please!!”
  • “U-um… well, are you okay with that, s/o?”
  • You reluctantly agree, and sit nestled between the two
  • So then you watch the movie – Pandorum, Kaito’s pick
  • Shuichi holds your hand throughout the whole thing, and sometimes you bury your head in his shoulder when things get too intense on screen
  • Then just when the credits start rolling and you can finally relax… *thump* 
  • Your body goes rigid, Shuichi grips your hand very tightly, and Kaito screams
  • “I-it’s probably just the cat!” he says, trying to play it cool
  • “W-we don’t have a cat, Kaito…” Shuichi, seemingly the least nervous of the three of you
  • When you hear another *thump*, Kaito jumps and clings onto you for dear life
  • Shuichi suppresses a smile and volunteers to go and check it out
  • He’s gone for what feels like too long, but when he comes back…
  • “Kaito… you left the door open again. It was just banging in the wind.”
  • He’s a little exasperated because come on Kaito it’s not that hard to close a door
  • Kaito, relieved that it’s nothing paranormal, apologises (“Haha, sorry, guys, my bad!”) and then goes and makes you both sickly-sweet hot chocolates to make up for it
  • You drink them together on the couch and talk late into the night

Kaede and Miu with a female s/o 

  • It was Miu’s idea, but Kaede is up for it
  • She wants to marathon the Saw series
  • “Maybe you should face your fear, s/o!” Kaede encourages you, smiling sweetly
  • “It’s all fake, anyway! Unlike my machines! I’d do a way better job than that freak! Kyahahaha!”
  • “Th-that’s not something she want’s to hear, Miu…”
  • Kaede promises that she’ll turn it off if it gets too scary, and the three of you stretch out on the floor on your sleeping bags with a big bowl of popcorn and several packets of sweets
  • Miu and Kaede each take one of your hands, and you’re sure that Miu actually squeezes you harder than you do her… it’s quite comforting
  • When you can’t watch, Kaede gently covers your eyes for you
  • No sooner has the first movie ended, however, than Miu is up and getting the second one ready, but that’s when– *tap… tap… tap…*
  • You scream, Kaede freezes, and Miu lets out a squeak of fright
  • It was an ominous tapping sound, quiet yet clear, possibly coming from the front door…
  • For a moment Miu looks just as scared as you do, but then she brings on the aggression
  • “Whoever the fuck is making that noise better stop right now or girl genius Miu Iruma is going to saw you in half!!!”
  • She stomps to the front door, throws it open, and it’s… your neighbour, come to ask if you would be so kind as to turn the volume down
  • Miu had insisted on having it that loud because she wanted it to feel like you were at the cinema
  • Kaede hurries to smooth things over
  • You don’t end up watching the rest because Miu says that having the movie at a lower volume would “kill the mood”
  • So it turns into a normal sleepover, chatting and snacking and playing silly games together late into the night

Main points from Afterbuzz interview

Spoiler warning for season 4!

So Afterbuzz TV sat down with Lauren Montgomery, Joaquim Dos Santos and Jeremy Shada to review episodes 1 and 2 as well as discuss the season as a whole. Here’s a summary :)

*Note: a lot of this is paraphrased since I was taking notes as I was listening, but it’s as true to what was said as physically possible

  • About Keith (and Shiro):
    • Last season was a lot about building Keith’s confidence as a leader and then immediately he steps out of the role. Joaquim says Keith has always been reluctant to be in the leader position
    • Lauren says we have a situation where we have one paladin too many, something’s gotta give. Had Shiro stayed gone Keith would’ve absolutely stayed put, but with Shiro back Keith feels like he can’t fill those shoes, so he’s kinda pulling back to sort of force Shiro to step back in
    • Lauren is responsible for the Shiro & Keith cameo in the background of the Holt final photos before the Kerberos launch
    • Lauren calls Shiro Keith’s “guiding light”
    • Lauren says Shiro is going to have a “lot of development” 
    • Jeremy teases more backstory 
  • About Matt:
    • The fakeout at Matt’s grave was Joaquim’s idea
    • Steve Ahn’s birthday made it into the graveyard scene as Matt’s wrong birthday (or perhaps the coordinates? wasn’t clear)
    • Jeremy says he watched the graveyard scene not knowing anything since he wasn’t in that episode, and even he believed it for a second, despite Matt’s VA being around a lot to record lines
    • Lauren says she still gets affected and she’s known since day one that Matt will be back (”and he’s gonna be a rebel and he’s gonna be an action star!”)
    • Matt is a huge dork. He had to grow and evolve to survive but at the heart of it he’s still Pidge’s dork of a brother 
    • Matt was the only person Pidge could relate to growing up because she was way too smart for everyone else in her class, smarter even than her own teacher, so she had no one except her brother. And then he kinda left her behind, not intentionally or in a mean sense but still
    • Matt got into the Garrison on brainpower and he isn’t as powerful as some other characters. He very much fights like someone who isn’t a big guy (speed not strength)
  • About Lance:
    • Lance is all about being in the spotlight. The Voltron shows are everything he’s been waiting for
    • Jeremy says it was fun playing those more lighthearted episodes after the more serious growing and maturing from last season
    • Lance has a lightheartedness to him; Jeremy says that’s his favourite part of playing him
    • Lauren jokes that it’s all Jeremy’s fault cause he’s so good at playing Lance and if you’re mad that Lance is funny all hatemail goes to Jeremy
    • Joaquim says it’s tough with so many characters, but reiterates that every person will have their time in the spotlight
    • Regarding Lance’s pep talk to Allura at the end of the season, Lance knows when someone needs to step up, he’s a really good team player. He loves being the center of attention but he’s also able to pull back. Jeremy says the team is like a family now, and it’s that respect and care and love for everyone on the team that lets Lance be confident in saying stuff like “I know you can do this, it’s all you” as opposed to something like “I think I can do something!”
    • Lauren points out that Lance started in the blue lion which is a support lion, holds Voltron up, and he’s since graduated to the right hand which is like the ultimate support to the head. It’s a good indication of what’s beneath the surface, he’s really good at knowing everyone’s strengths, good team player
    • Joaquim adds that if you look deeper, Lance comes from a big family, and within the family dynamic he was probably very much that guy. But to people outside the family he wants to be seen as front and center
    • Jeremy says Lance is going to continue to grow, building on the more serious moments from this season and the one before. Lance becomes “a voice of reason” soon
  • About Lotor:
    • Lauren is to blame for Lotor dislocating his shoulder. They wrote themselves into a bit of a corner with that; they knew he had to get away but how? It’s not like he could drive with his mouth or pick the lock, the space cuffs don’t have locks. Joaquim says everyone cringed just looking at Lauren’s storyboards for that scene without even sound or anything
    • Lauren says Lotor is genuinely intelligent and we’ll eventually learn things about him “like maybe he’s not SUPER backstabby?”
    • [both Joaquim and Lauren are very tight lipped on Lotor backstory and relationship with Honerva etc]
  • Voice cast trivia: 
    • Josh Keaton voices Regris
    • Whenever there’s an extra lady voice it’s usually Kimberly Brooks or Cree Summer
    • Lauren recalls one amazing blooper when Rhys Darby (Coran) just got so frustrated with a line he cussed them out. Joaquim and Jeremy add that Rhys has this amazing way that he abandons a line, where he’ll just go dadadadada–awwh (“he deflates”). To be fair Rhys gets a lot of the hardest and most technical lines
    • Andrea Romano (the show’s retired voice director) did the robot voice at Matt’s grave–she has a tradition of doing computer voices (she was the batmobile for a long time)–and she also has done the Castleship’s voice as well as some helmet translations
    • Te-Osh was voiced by Lacey Chabert who does Nyma. She has a naturally high voice so they pitched her down for Te-Osh and found it turned out amazing
    • John DiMaggio voiced lieutenant Ozar as well as the bounty hunter and the illegal arms dealer from Reunion (There’s a cute story with Christine Bian–backgrounds and props supervisor–who is a huge Futurama fan so she came in the day John was recording and he was super nice and signed her things and as he left she yelled “Bender we love you!” and you hear down the hall “shut up baby I know it”)
  • The Blade of Marmora feel the most responsibility out of anyone to do whatever they can against the Galra given it’s their culture and they want to prove to everyone that they’re willing to go as far as it takes to right the wrongs, which unfortunately often leads to BoM operatives being not very long-lived
  • Joaquim says the grey alien from the mall goes to Earth every now and then for a round of abductions and then he resells everything, which is how he got all the game systems and Kaltenecker, etc
  • Pidge was determined to play her game and within a few months she had gathered everything to jury rig it so it’d work, and then of course Lance in typical Lance fashion jacked her game system the same way he jacked her headphones
    • The pixel artist they got to do the game is Michael Azzi, based in Brussels, and he came up with most of it on his own (that boss move at the end where the shot rotates was all his idea)
  • Any time the show goes Full Anime (the Kaltenecker scene, Matt and Allura’s meeting) it’s usually Steve Ahn’s doing
    • Joaquim says go watch Matt and Allura’s meeting in Japanese
  • The Voltron Show episode was very much their Ember Island Players episode. Joaquim says there’s a bit of a disconnect, that it was first and foremost an episode for them internally to come to terms with a lot of stuff, whereas a lot of people are saying “oh they’re speaking directly to us [the fans]” but that’s not the case. They’ve been thinking about this since a long time ago. Lauren says it was written and in production long before the fandom
  • Lauren would’ve loved to get to know the rebels a bit better and give Olia a proper introductions but just no time
How Dan and Phil probably broke up #37
  • Phil: *gets Dan a whisk for Christmas*
