HEY KID, HAVE YOU EVER WANTED TO WRITE YOUR ENGLISH ESSAYS COMPLETELY IN CODE? WELL, NOW YOU CAN DO THAT! 

Presenting one of the nerdiest things I’ve ever spent three hours on: 

Fordese. Exactly as seen in Journal 3, but as a font. You too can confuse your work partner, twin brother, and dream demon arch-nemesis by simply typing on the keyboard as normal, no pen needed!

I must thank @picnokinesis and the fics they wrote in code for putting the random inspiration in my mind to do this, ahahah. XD 

The font includes all coded letters from A-Z, both in uppercase and lowercase. (They’re both the same, though- I just figured it wouldn’t hurt to double up.) It has a full set of numbers, and the most common punctuation. Some of the letters are annoyingly close to each other, but it couldn’t easily be helped. 

But hey, if anyone actually uses this and makes a post, please feel free to tag me in it so I can see! And if anyone tries this out and there’s any major issues with it, let me know and I can try to fix it! :D

You can find the font right here!

infodumping about the ocean

get this - a Thai show about gay love refuses to cast gay men in the roles of gay men (I know, unbelievable)

they (the organizer of the show) released a statement saying that they were searching only for straight actors because they felt they would fit the roles (of gay men) better

not only did they basically admit that they’re not creating their series for anyone but straight fangirls by saying something like that (because they can still ship themselves with the straight actors even if they somewhat or completely believe in their OTPs), they’ve also used a really popular, openly gay rising actor, Newyear Kitiwhut (part of an internet-famous Thai gay couple) to draw attention, only to drop him in the final stages of auditions (he brought in a lot of fans and supporters to the show by auditioning)

it also shows that they don’t really care about the content they are creating and the story they are telling, just the popularity of it (even if the organizer of the show is gay himself, he still only wanted straight men to play the roles)

you can read the full translation of the statement here + the opinion of the person who translated

the show is called 2Moons The Series

I want to be a reporter. I can’t believe I didn’t see it before.

“I wonder what other family mottoes are,” Emma mused. “Do you know any?”
“The Lightwood family motto is ‘We mean well.’  ”
“Very funny.”
Julian looked over at her. “No, really, it actually is.”
“Seriously? So what’s the Herondale family motto? ‘Chiseled but angsty’?”
He shrugged. ‘If you don’t know what your last name is, it’s probably Herondale’?”
Emma burst out laughing.
“What about Carstairs?” she asked, tapping Cortana. “ ‘ We have a sword’? ‘Blunt instruments are for losers’?”
“Morgenstern,” offered Julian. “ ‘ When in doubt, start a war’?”
“How about ‘Has even one of us ever been any good, like ever, seriously’?”
“Seems long,” said Julian. “And kind of on the nose.

sorry to ask this, but i’m really struggling financially for several reasons right now and donations would be really appreciated. my mental illness symptoms got so severe that i had to go to the hospital (i can provide proof if needed) and miss days of work + my hours were temporarily cut. additionally, my wallet, which had over 100$ inside, is missing. the financial issues are really taking a toll on my mental health. i’m not sure how i’ll pay for things like my medication, which is vital to my wellbeing.

any help would be appreciated- even just reblogging this post! if you want me to pay me back, let me know, and i swear, i’ll repay you as soon as i can. i can also make icons (i don’t have a ton of experience, but i’ve made some before) in return! a link to donate is paypal.me/khthree!

Ok since the whole tumblr is obsessed with Yuri!!! on Ice

I decided to give some advices especially to the artists who draw russian characters to make it less cringy for myself. I’m sure somebody might have already done something like this but I still want to bring up some points.


- to all shippers out there: russians wear wedding rings on the RIGHT HAND, not on the left;

- we also don’t have a tradition of the engagement rings;

- please, please, PLEASE don’t try to write/use russian phrases unless you actually know the language or can ask someone who knows it. Non-speakers won’t get them, latin transliteration is ugly as fuck, not to mention that the translator will 99.9% get it wrong somewhere. Use english, really;

- the same goes to writing in russian: please don’t do it unless you know how to. Redrawing russian printed letters looks weird at best. Russian cursive is a bitch but at least it’s a beautiful bitch;

- russians don’t celebrate Christmas on the December 25th. Orthodox Christmas is celebrated on the 7th of January and it’s not as global as western Christmas. It’s more of a religious tradition. But New Year celebration in Russia is HUGE. So if you want to draw a winter thematic art, new year theme would suit better;

- (also we don’t have Halloween);

- according to the rules of transliteration it’s ‘Viktor’. Not ‘Victor’;

- when drawing scenes of russian character with people they’re close to, use their short name forms. Especially with lovers. (So yeah use ‘Vitya’ and ‘Yura’ it’s really nice);

- there are more forms of russian names: some are tender, some are playful, some are cute, some even are weird. If you want to know a specific form just ask someone who’s native. But common short forms work almost always;

- there’s a difference between ‘nickname’ and 'short form of a name’. Russian names are very inclusive - all short forms of our name are also used as our name. Not in the official documents obviously but everywhere else. Like friends would never call each other by their full form names unless it’s a joke or 'their thing’;

- but things are different when it comes to a social hierarchy: for example a mentor can (and in most cases will) call their student by common short form of their name but student has to call their mentor by their full form and also add their 'otchestvo’ (father’s name, not the same as a second name), unless there is little or no age difference between them;

- this is more like a subjective opinion from me but being called by a full name by a close person (family/friend/lover) is somewhat mentally tiring for a russian. I mean it’s not like short form is an optional nickname that is used in specific situations by specific people. It’s a name that russian person hears for the most time. Being called by an 'official’ form all the time is quite exhausting. But maybe it’s just me;

- also this is totally off-topic but Yuri freaking out because there is another Yuuri with a name that is similar to his is so ridiculous. I mean russian names are common. Just while my school times I’ve met about 6 girls whose name was also 'Tatyana’. We didn’t shout at each other in the toilet.

Ok I think that’s it for now. Though I might have forgot something. Hm.
Somebody will probably disagree with me or will think that’s not important but I don’t care. It was worth a try.

Yeah, of course all of the above aren’t obligations but if you actually took them into consideration it would be really nice.

P.S. I also wrote one more piece of info.

There's a 1 week waiting List for ao3 :''( i was looking forward to reading some of the members only johnlock fics from a post you reblogged ages ago :/ do you have some recs for public and kinda unknown fics? Absolutely love ofd btw! xx

Hello dear anon!

Sorry to hear about the waiting list! I hope you’re on it and that a week goes by in a flash ;)

In the meantime, as far as unknown johnlock recs, sadly I have not read a ton of new johnlock fic in the last few years (since I have mostly been busy writing instead of reading and I don’t always have time for both), but there’s a few I could suggest! Many of these you probably will already have heard of but I will suggest them just in case:

The Edinburgh Problem series by @snorklepie is pure delight from start to finish (and she’s not yet finished so there’s much to look forward to! ). This series is the main (maybe only?) johnlock WIP I’m currently following and it is soooooo so so excellent. 

I only just discovered Guilty Secrets by ellipsicalelle and it is EXCELLENT. 

I also just finally started reading build your wings by greywash which everyone has been telling me to read for like a million years and it is as incredible and lovely as everyone says. 

You should definitely read everything by caitlinfairchild because she is a genius, and also @fleurdelis221b because everything she writes is pure poetry and if you haven’t read Dawn Before the Rest of the World by @fuckyeahfightlock then do not walk but RUN to that link– it is one of my all time favorite johnlock series. Also, you must read The Bone Fiddle series by @vulgarweed because aksdjglasdgkjaslgkj words fail me. And also The Violet Hour by @havingbeenbreathedout - it is one of my favorite pieces of writing of all time, anywhere. 

None of these are especially ‘unknown’ but hopefully you will find something here that you have not heard of! Also, feel free to take a stroll through my bookmarks page– there’s probably a lot more lesser known things on there from over the years. 

Hope this helps! And happy reading!

2017 Phan

I like how the phandom has decided that 2017 is the year Dan and Phil will come out, move and get a dog (also possibly get married but like honestly isn’t that supposed to happen in 2022?). And whenever Dan and Phil say they’ll do anything (upload a video, do a joint lveshow etc) we get really excited and we’re like ‘YES, this is IT, guys. They are coming out as a couple. They are anouncing that they got a puppy, they got engaged and that they will soon move. I know it. I just KNOW it. I CAN FEEL IT!’. And then it ends up being just another pleasant, domestic, funny video and we just stand there like ‘wut’ for a bit and then we find a new thing to scream about (eg THEY WERE NOT WEARING ANY PANTS)

PEOPLE ACTUALLY THINK MONSTA X COPIED BTS LMAO HONEY I DON’T THINK THE STARSHIP PRODUCTION TEAM GIVE A FLYING FUCK ABOUT WHAT BTS DID AS THEIR CONCEPT. JUST BECAUSE THE COLOR PALLETE OF TWO PICTURES LOOK SIMILAR DOESN’T MEAN IT’S “”“COPIED”“” SIT DOWN FOR A MOMENT AND TAKE A FEW BREATHS JESUS

IT’S NOT EVEN THAT IT’S ABOUT MONSTA X OKAY I’M NOT BEING BIASED IT’S THAT THIS ENTIRE COMMUNITY IS SO FUCKING SENSETIVE WITH THESE THINGS???? LIKE TAKE A STEP BACK, ENJOY THE ART, FUCKING CHILL OUT. IN REALITY NO GROUP HAS CONTROL OVER WHAT THEIR CONCEPT IS GOING TO BE SO IT’S ACTUALLY COMPANIES COPYING EACH OTHER IF ANYTHING.

AND PEOPLE GET BITTER ABOUT THE SMALLEST THING? LIKE “OH NO THIS PERSON WAS IN THE SAME POSE AS THIS OTHER PERSON FROM ANOTHER GROUP” THAT DOESN’T COUNT AS COPYING, IT’S NOT SOMETHING YOU CAN EVEN COPY???

JUST BECAUSE TWO GROUPS HAS SIMILAR THINGS LIKE LET’S SAY THAT BATHTUB..,, THEY HAVE DIFFERENT MEANINGS!!!! THEY SYMBOLIZE DIFFERENT THINGS!!!! STOP ASSUMING THAT X COPIED Y FOR THE DUMBEST FUCKING REASONS!!!! COLOR PALETTES AND OBJECTS USED IN TWO DIFFERENT CONCEPTS IS NOT COPYING

I’VE SEEN CONCEPTS THAT HAVE LOOKED MORE LIKE THEY’VE COPIED EACH OTHER AND YOU KNOW WHAT I DID??? I TOOK A DEEP BREATH AND KEPT IT TO MYSELF BECAUSE IT LITERALLY DOES!!!! NOT!!!!! FUCKING!!!! MATTER!!!!! IT’S NOT THAT BIG OF A DEAL!!!!!!!

AND THIS REALLY APPLIES TO THE ENTIRE COMMUNITY NOT JUST THIS, IM REAL SICK AND TIRED OF SEEING THIS KIND OF SHIT
