Okay, legitimate question time about Hogwarts’ Hospital Wing and what actually necessitates a visit to St Mungos.

  • Petrified by a basilisk? Nah. It may take all year, but we’ll just keep them here, sorry muggle parents.
  • Turned into an anthromorphic cat? No worries! Pomfrey will figure it out. Eventually.
  • Nearly killed by Department of Mysteries miscellany and numerous Death Eaters? They’re fiiiine.
  • Possessed by Voldemort for nearly a year? Dumbledore says all you need is a nap, stop whining.
  • Ravaged my an un-turned werewolf? Like St Mungos would know what to do, Mrs W just give Fleur that salve already.
  • Cursed by a necklace? No tha– oh, crap. Yes alright, take her to Mungos.

Damn, Poppy Pomfrey has her hands full.

Finn does not give a fuck about your idols

Star Wars: The Force Awakens established the male lead Finn as an antifascist, anti-authoritarian hero, and he is justly celebrated as such. I don’t think people talk as much, though, about his relationship with authority and legends in general: Specifically, that he does not trust authority and has no use for legends.

This makes Finn a different kind of hero, one who is not only anti-authoritarian but anti-authority. He is not like Luke who was all starry-eyed about the Jedi and his father. He is not even like Rey who filled her starved soul with dreams of heroes, or Poe who grew up surrounded by legends. Finn also stands in contrast to the main villain, Kylo Ren, who turned his back on the heroes of the Rebellion and Republic only to bow down to idols of the Empire and First Order.

Finn’s closest predecessors are Han Solo of the original trilogy and Jyn Erso of Rogue One, especially Jyn who was the traumatized, world-weary outsider before she threw in with like-minded comrades in the Rebellion. With Finn, however, I believe the ambivalence about choosing a side is portrayed as not only a reflection of his trauma but also a healthy reaction to it.

This hesitation about the Resistance puts Finn in a fascinating position in the Star Wars universe and opens a whole new window into the nature of political thought in the Star Wars franchise. Here’s how:

Tarnish my honor? How about no money or job?

tl;dr will be at the bottom as this is quite long story.

Names, places and dates have all been changed to conceal people’s identity in this event.

Context

Let me set the scene first, I had joined the Army direct from “high school” (for my colonial friends) and had a great time, however my contract was up and I had decided that I really wanted to go back into further education and redo my high school (As I failed everything as I was so focused on joining the Army at the time) with the intention on going to University. So, with that in mind I did not sign on for another contract with the Army I just left.

Findom 101: How to approach a Findomme

Entering a fetish community like Findom is amazing, I know. But still it can be confusing to know about the unwritten rules of this fetish. Quite often I find people in my inbox asking what to expect or ‘how this works’. And believe me I’m happy to help those who are seriously interested in becoming a committed finsub. There are however a few odd ones who think it’s a good idea to insult a Domme or make demands or run once they hear the word ‘pay’.

That’s why I worked with my loyal sub, who’s been in the BDSM scene for almost 20 years, to give you this short comprehensive list.

Things you should keep in mind before or while you’re talking to a Findomme:

  1. Before approaching a Findomme, know what Findom means. Do your research, so you know what to expect.  
  2. Don’t ever tell a Findomme you want to serve her or be her slave/sub, but you’re broke. If you aren’t ready to pay, then Findom just isn’t for you.
  3. Before approaching a Findomme, be honest with yourself about your commitment level and what you hope to accomplish for Her.  
  4. Be honest with your Findomme about what She can expect from you.
  5. If you plan to be a regular contributor to your Findomme’s benefit, be consistent.
  6. If something comes up and you can’t tribute as expected, be honest and let your Findomme know as soon as possible.
  7. Surprise your Findomme with random tributes whenever possible.
  8. Don’t ask “what’s in it for me,” it isn’t about you anymore. Your Findomme’s happiness should be your primary concern.
  9. Learn about your Findomme and keep up with Her social media and website daily.
  10. Accept Her superiority and respect Her authority. A Findomme knows what She’s doing. Don’t question it or you will be punished.
  11. Be kind and respectful, not just to Her, but those around you.
  12. Thank your Findomme for whatever She gives you.
  13. Make Her world a better place.

I hope this is helpful for my fellow Dommes and any new, promising subs out there. Feel free to add anything of importance we might have missed and please share. Thanks again to @bullpen30 for your valued input, great job!

I was given 52 detentions for suspected cheating, almost suspended for it. The principal called me to his office, made some cheesy annoying statement about how this kind of behavior wouldn’t be tolerated. 

 Okay, I said. I’m sorry, it won’t happen again. It was a mistake. 

 Already that year I knew three people who were out longterm for mental illness. Already kids were high in classes just to get by them. Already what was tolerated was a bunch of kids having breakdowns. 

 It was a mistake it won’t happen again. I make sure that my answers are big on the science test. The boy next to me can’t afford medication for his learning disability and hasn’t slept since his parents split and if he doesn’t get a 2.0 he loses his team, the last thing he has left. 

 It was a mistake it won’t happen again. When I pass her my homework I ask her quietly if her mom was getting better. When the semester ends and we are in different classes, I start doing her assignments on the side. She sends me snaps from chemotherapy. 

 It was a mistake it won’t happen again. When I hand over the notes, I make sure there’s plenty of marginal positive thoughts. They haven’t smiled all month. I know what it’s like to be too tired and doing nothing at all. 

 It was a mistake. Your students are resorting to immoral choices because they have no other option. You make grades the be-all and end-all priority, no matter what else might be happening. You force them into situations where they can either fail and definitely have a permanent punishment, or cheat and probably pass - it’s worth the risk. Your students stand in solidarity, not to praise the might of learning: but to gather together in the right of living. You are the one who made the dichotomy of student/human. We are not both, are given “either like it or leave it”, are trained almost like robots. Do the work, don’t ask questions, don’t challenge the authority. 

 It was a mistake. It won’t happen again where you can see it. But I love learning. And if I can be the one who keeps your student in the classroom by giving them that extra push? Maybe I’m doing a better job than you. Cheating wouldn’t be a problem if we weren’t already being cheated. You can’t set us up to lose and then get frustrated when we rig the game, too.

I rewatched the Winterfell scenes and here are some more Jonsa thoughts:

  • We had seen it in the trailers before, but I still love that both Davos and Sansa are sitting next to Jon. 
  • Lyanna, the little bear: “I don’t plan on knitting by the fire while the men fight for me.”
    Cue to Sansa smirking. Can we have Jon teaching Sansa to fight? That would be so awesome. (Brienne can help train her as well, though.)
  • But she’s not your sister, Jon.
  • “Joffrey never let anyone question his authority. Do you think he was a good king?”
    “Do you think I’m Joffrey?”
    “You’re as far from Joffrey as anyone I’ve ever met.”
    “Thank you.”
    Their fighting, their telling the truths may be a bit harsh to watch, but it’s good that they dare to speak so openly to each other (”we have to trust each other” after all). But most importantly, I love that they immediately let go of what was said. That’s really powerful, especially for two ‘siblings’ who barely interacted with each other.  
  • Also, ALL THOSE SOFT GLANCES AND SMILES. I CAN’T.
  • Like I already posted: Jon and Sansa fight like a married couple, like Ned and Cat. I’m certain Cat told a lot of “buts” to Ned as well.
  • JON STILL PROTECTING HER. BE STILL MY HEART.
  • That focus on that arm grab, though. 
    I love how they focused on that part, even Jon looked down at her hand on his arm (!), as she forces him to look at her as she wants to help him. 
  • They really are Ned and Cat 2.0. I am loving this parallel so much. He’s so honourable like Ned, but he should listen more to Sansa, because like Cat, she understands politics better. They really could make a powerful King and Queen of the North, they just need to stand more united and listen to each other
    (She warned him about Ramsay because she knew him, he didn’t listen. Now she’s warning him about Cersei because she knows her, he still isn’t listening.)
  • “You almost sound as if you admire her.”
    “I learned a great deal from her.”
    Cue to Cersei and Jaime, from the one ruling ‘sibling’ pair to the other. Only thing is, the one that is romantic shouldn’t be and the one that isn’t romantic (yet) should be. (Something Sansa should’ve learned from Cersei as well, haha.)
  • “I am safe.”
    Flashback to Sansa telling Brienne: “Jon is Jon. He’s my brother. He’ll keep me safe. I trust him.” in 6x05.

I want to make something really clear from the beginning because your question, whether you intended it to be or not, troubles me. I don’t mind comparing fics from different cultures; I think it’s interesting how people from different backgrounds interpret and implement tropes and themes into their writing.

But what does bother me is when people compare fics in terms of worth.

anonymous asked:

1/2Thank you for your hard work! May i ask you for scenario where reader is a daughter of Erwin's good friend and she is introduced to Levi when he joined survey corps and remain some kind of good friends but reader has a crush on him. Years later Levi and his squad meet reader for some buisness when all they see that corporal and reader have some kind of relationship(both deny it). After that Hanji "accidently" made reader drunk and they had girls talk.

2/2 Hanji walks her home cause her new pal is super drunk. Levi scolds Hanji and reader. And when they left alone reader kisses him, “how couldn’t you notice me falling for you, dumbass. Just reject me already and stop being so nice to me!” I forgot to say that Levi complimented her before everyone like ‘she makes the best tee, lets have cuppa tea brats’ I am sorry if it sounds stupid D:

This is a super cute scenario! Sorry it took me so long to write!

I don’t consider the books to be anti-authoritarian. But I do think it is important, if you think something is wrong, to question authority — because, you know, there are villains in real life, and they don’t always wear black capes and black hats. Sometimes they’re dressed like authority figures. And kids need to know that it’s important to question them.

A Hunter’s Halloween

A/N: I got Day 4 of @winchesters-favorite-girl ‘s Halloween Writing Challenge - Halloween Costumes. So glad I joined this challenge, it was a lot of fun! 

Pairing: Winchesters x Friend!Reader (she’s like a lil sis) 

Summary: A fellow hunter, (Y/n), tags along with the Winchester Brothers to hunt down a ghost haunting the house where the town’s Halloween party is held. Ready for a quick ganking of a ghost, the three set off but run into a minor problem: No costume, no entry. 

Warnings: Few swears and a very brief description of Dean getting stitches (I thought it was gross so I thought I’d warn other squeamish people)  

Word Count: 2500+

A/N Part 2: (Started off short and cute and then my brain was like: Hey what if you added character arcs and personalities and a real plot so I tried meeting myself halfway and not get too into the story but kinda I couldn’t help it.)


The Impala raced down the empty road. Dean sat in backseat beside (Y/n), a young hunter that the Winchesters met a few years back who joined the boys on their latest hunt as Sam drove them back to the motel. They were heading back now from a vampire case that they just barely managed to survive. (Y/n) was currently stitching together a deep gash on Dean’s upper arm.

The boys met (Y/n) on a hunt a few years prior, when she was only nineteen. (Y/n) and the Winchester’s were trailing the same Vampire case separately and wound up running into each other and decided to work together. They were an amazing team and now three years later, they called upon (Y/n) again for assistance. She was more than happy to oblige, meeting the boys and taking out another nest. However, this time things didn’t go as smoothly.

Dean downed some more whiskey to numb the pain of (Y/n) driving the needle in and out of his skin. Sucking in a quick breath, Dean closed his eyes and downed more whiskey.

“Oh, stop being such a baby.” (Y/n) teased.

Life Question...

My spouse and I are about to have our second child in about a month. I am working full-time at a job I hate so that we can pay the bills. My passion, and desired career, is storytelling (specifically as an author/illustrator). I have multiple projects in the works (picture books to submit to agents, mini-comics to build comic portfolio, and a long-form graphic novel [for which the mini-comics are helping me learn form before going full-steam ahead into the art {though I AM working on the script} as well as boosting my portfolio to make my graphic novel more marketable for publishers]) and, while I am making some progress, I am having to work in my spare time (mainly during my lunch break at work, during the toddler’s nap time on the weekends, and the occasional hour or two at night if our toddler goes to sleep early enough…which they usually don’t). On top of all that, I’m trying to find a way to fit in getting in better shape because I feel very unhealthy and want to take better care of my body. At this point, the only thing that seems to be unnecessary is my full-time job…which isn’t unnecessary because it pays the bills (stupid responsibility).

Does anyone have any ideas on how I can find more time? I would love to move forward into my art career as quickly as possible so I can get out of this job.
