Do Pacific Islander peoples practice voodoo/santeria/brujeria like Africans and Latinos do? What is your peoples form of spirituality and magic? I'd love to know. :)

Hello,

Hmm, to be honest I don’t know a lot about traditional religions in the Pacific.. Missionaries really messed up a lot of our religions/beliefs. I know in Samoa we have traditional healers (which revolves around massage and herbal medicines) but a lot of the healing practices were banned by missionaries because they thought of it as black magic and un-christian. 

We also have the concept of Mana across the Pacific. It’s one thing in the Pacific, besides the ocean, that connects us all. Mana simply put is that every object it’s own power. Unfortunately the concept of Mana has been hijacked, by a lot of fantasy communities. My brothers literally learnt about the concept of mana from Diablo lol. A lot of the PI mythologies are very similar and interconnected.. For example Maui pops up in a lot of the islands mythologies. But they aren’t really actively practiced or worshiped if you know what I mean… 

I know in some islands there are beliefs of sorcery/witchcraft (see here a trial in PNG regarding murders connected to sorcery) but I couldn’t tell you a lot about how those beliefs are practiced or the meanings behind them… Sorry!

Feel free to add more info! I’m curious about this as well…

That's actually so cool! I also dearly love MM myself and whenever I talk about mystic Messenger I get all into it! Lol! Anyways, My fav route has to be Yoosung's or 707's. And my favorite character has to be 707 (because he'a so hot like omg, he my bae! XD) Anyways, Here's my question; Let's say that this is your first time playing MM, and judging by either personality or appearance, who do you think is the most yandere and who do you think has the darkest backstory/childhood?

Oh!!! haha I think it’s interesting how we each like one of the Choi twins haha. Tbh 707′s route was my least favorite– But I still love him though! Hmm judging by personality or appearance? I mean I suspected Seven’s route to be the darkest since he was never serious and always avoided talking about deep topics– even when it came to that point, he would try to play it off by adding a “lololol” or a “just kidding!” at the end. That’s so painfully relatable LMAO. But the most yandere– I didn’t expect any of them to have a yandere side. I actually never got a bad ending, so I only found out about Yoosung’s darker side by watching other people’s play-throughs bc I just can’t deal with getting a bad ending myself TT ^ TT Maybe one day I’ll try, but not today alskdjflkd

how do I tell my mom that I don't want to visit her on the weekends anymore? I'm always miserable over there, and we aren't exactly close.. She's quick to anger and has a horrible temper, and knowing her she'll try to force me to keep coming. Any ideas? I've tried talking to my dad, but he can't legally prevent me from seeing her, and seems generally unwilling to do anything in my favor.

hmm this is hard bc it sounds like you can’t just nicely tell her you want to visit her less often :/ maybe hang out with friends on the weekends and stay out all day? anyone else have ideas?

If you’re Autistic/ADHD reblog this + tag some of your favorite stims!

roadhog week day 7: otp / brotp

i wasn’t gonna do anything for today since i put so much time into my other pieces but it’s pride month and i love these two gay trans men…so… here’s a quiet moment

So, Hard Candy makes this “iridescent pearl highlighter”, and I was piiiiiiiissed, because it ended up just being somewhat satiny, pinkish-white pressed powder that only showed up as shimmer/glitter over really dark shadow or with tons of mixing medium.

But, uhh, once the translucent/“pearl” powder part settles into your skin, it’s straight up blue and pink glitter, y'all.

And so you shouldn’t, uhm, like as an example that maybe a total dumbass might do, shrug and just use it to set your whole face hoping it’ll just make you vaguely dewy.

Because it’s definitely glitter. And your whole face will be blue and pink teeny shimmers as far as the eye can see, and considering you’re caked in glitter, the eye doesn’t even need to see that fuckin’ far. And, uhh, if you were to, like, hypothetically do your makeup in your bra, there’s a lot of fallout. Not, like, the sexy robot detective kind, but the My New Name is Glittertits Cullen and I’m Here to Party kind, so. Hmm.

There’s nothing I can do– I mean, there’s nothing I can THINK of that an IDIOT WHO DID THIS could do, to fix it.

I am a business casual disco ball and I no longer fear death. This concludes my makeup review. Use my coupon code “AW DUDE FUCK FOR REAL WHY THIS” for 20% off all Hard Candy products.

Would You Rather: Homestuck Canon Edition

1. Get a 12-book series about the Ancestors (including the Handmaid’s story, detailed full-page illustrations in more than half of the chapters, and lots of the heavier themes from the comic).

2. Read a full, “5”-act release of Hivebent on MSPA (in which we get tons of canon interactions and lots of epic battle scenes).

3. Play 6 more flashes of the Dancestors (in which everyone interacts with everyone at least twice, we get full characterization of everyone, there are canon titles for the Beforan ancestors, and we learn exactly what happened to Mituna).

OR

4. Hiveswap releases at all.

Isak eats really unhealthy! While his friends are all eating sandwiches at school he'll eat a bun or a Norwegian waffle. Like boy should not be living by himself, lol. I'm glad even makes him eggs for breakfast. And I wonder if even is good at cooking in general. At least he seems to be taking charge in the kitchen so far. I have a feeling Isak is the kind to just grab a handful of cereal out of the box before

FO’ REAL!! I doubt Isak has had a balanced meal since he ran away from home! And he may very well grab cereal from the box, assuming he has any at home, either way he’s probably forgotten to buy milk.

Even is definitely more interested in cooking than Isak, and given that he has some seasoning tricks to make the food taste better, I imagine he has some culinary talents as well. Isak however, I doubt could cook to save his own life! At least this is what empiric data tells me…

Because of course me being the weirdo I am, I’m physically incapable of speculating about stuff like this without researching and getting all the facts™ first, so I’ve gone through all the times (that I could remember) we’ve seen Isak eating and compiled some data.

In the words of Isak: NU KÖR VI~


We don’t really know anything about Isak’s eating habits at home (in S1). And aside from Even, the only one who’s made food for Isak is Eva. When they were at Jonas’ cabin she made them pasta and tomato sauce

She also treated him to a coffee at one point (not food but still!).

I didn’t remember seeing Isak eat anything in particular in S2, so let’s skip onto S3….

First time we see Isak eating in S3, is the bun you mentioned. We see him tearing the raisin out of the bun, which tells me this is one of those semi-sweet raisin buns. They are delicious but not exactly healthy. (somewhat related: after close inspection I’m 95% sure these are raisin buns with CARDAMOM ❤︎).

Next time we see him eating it’s the cheese toast with ALL THE SPICES and ketchup that Even made him. Not exactly balanced food, but alright for a midday snack imo?

Unfortunately I doubt Isak finished it… when their datehangout got interrupted by guests, you see Isak look down dejectedly at his toasts and tap his thumb against his leg. :( Once Sonja is introduced I imagine Isak made himself scarce.

When Even spends the weekend at Isak’s after Halloween, they must have eaten something. The flatmates didn’t see either of them until Sunday, supposedly, but the mug Even puts ash in suggests to me that Isak probably sneaked out and made them sandwiches & cocoa or smth (that or the mug was already in his room… but one entire day, they’d have to eat) at some point.

Isak isn’t really great at getting breakfast either. That Sunday he literally opens the door, gets asked about Even by Noora and Eskild, and then closes the door again. Wonder how long it took for him to dare venture out… boy must have been starving!

After the painful ‘breakup’ when Isak wasn’t sleeping well, I can’t imagine he was eating so great either. Especially not if you consider the sad sad toast he got from the canteen. One toast with only cheese, it seriously looks just as tired as Isak does!

Of all the foods Isak has bought, the kebab he ate with Jonas is definitely among the healthiest. I imagine he spends most of his allowance/the money his dad sends on snapbacks (he can’t have borrowed all of them!), beer and eating fast food.

Luckily, if it’s down to Even Isak gets to eat a sturdy breakfast. And that’s good considering how Isak hardly seems to be able to get himself breakfast at the flat. (does he even have any food there?) I imagine that Even realized this when he stayed over the previous time, and simply decided to take matters into his own hands, with a little help from the Noora (and Eskild), making Isak scrambled eggs after staying over the second time.

Isak doesn’t join the guys for pizza… but on Friday, Isak waits for Even at the KB. I only saw a coffee cup though, so who knows if he had anything to eat there? Once again Even makes sure they get some food, ordering burgers and champagne (and what looks like cakes? fancy smørbrød?) at the hotel. Isak doesn’t exactly lack appetite at that point ;)

We don’t know what or how he ate the days after… but on Tuesday, we’re back to Isak’s classic diet. He gets a waffle. The guy doesn’t even put jam or anything tasty on it (except whipped cream?). idk what is up with Nissen’s canteen, but stuff looks plain af. (I feel for norwegianall kids who are forced to pay for or bring their own school lunches….)

Now last food Isak prepared (as I am writing this) was a ready-made frozen Grandiosa pizza, which can hardly be considered cooking. And it wasn’t even his (he doesn’t have any food at the flat does he…).

In conclusion (TL;DR):

I doubt Isak knows how to cook. I’m CERTAIN he maintains a horribly unhealthy diet ever since he ran away from home. And I’m hoping that Even’s cooking skills extend beyond breakfast and sandwiches, but honestly I’m fairly certain it does? Even seems comfortable enough in a kitchen to figure it out and make them some healthy food. So with Even in his life…

Hallelujah Isak is saved!!
