death: what are three things you want to do before you die?

  1. Do a “tour” of the British Isles (England, Scottland, Wales, Ireland and Northern Ireland) and visit as many stone circles, old castles and historical sites as possible! I’ve been wanting to do it since I was 16, but I’ve yet to find the perfect travelling companion for this venture.
  2. Spend an entire summer travelling from viking market to viking market, with my own tent and gear, and just enjoy the viking life I love so much!
  3. Impact someone’s life for the better. I just want to know that my existence has made a change, even if it is for just one person.

honestly the biggest reason this hell site is so fucking bad is that you guys refuse to let anyone enjoy anything like. some will make a totally unproblematic post like “I love [insert cartoon]!” and then someone will come along and be like “how can you do that!!11!11!! the creator of that show’s nephew once rode a train with someone who’s against gays!!!1!!1! OP is a homophobe who wants all gays to die” and that’s the biggest fucking reason we can’t have good things if something is remotely unproblematic y'all flip out like can you let people have a good time jfc bye

superdar  asked:

what do you think of people who find ur movement racist

This is a very common question, one that people like to ask to undermine what we’re doing instead of authentically questioning why we’re doing it. There is a misunderstanding evident in the phrasing of this question and even after answering this, we’re still going to get this question and objections to it. It’s not possible to formulate the perfect answer, but let me answer by telling you ‘why’ in one sentence:

We’re having a intra-community discussion out loud.

The “community” I’m referring to here is the Black Community". Basically, we’re having a discussion with other Black people. Here’s an example: A Black person may think “I enjoy doing (this thing), but I doubt there are Black people doing the same thing”. The Blackout is a way for us to interact with each other and start breaking that pattern. When you see someone doing what you want to do, it’s a validation (Representation Matters!). This isn’t the “whole story” of what BlackoutDay is, but it is one of the many facets.

Now, let’s get to the “out loud” part.

We’re on the Internet, using various social media sites. However, what makes Tumblr unique from others is that it’s a blank canvas. You can talk about whatever you want and you will attract the people within your niche. Love pastels? Well, join the party, there’s a pastel tumblr. Feeling like showing off your love for the Simpsons’ Ned Flanders, YAY! There’s one for you! This is all fine and dandy. However, we’re also looking for inspiration and new ideas and sometimes, you just have to ask and what better way to do that than a “call and response”?

When you’re doing this with TV shows, movies and other types of specific physical items, that’s fine. When you start to mention specific human attributes, that when it’s starts to become controversial. Then when you say “Black”… well… that’s when things start to become tense. There is a history that we have to acknowledge and it’s one we’re all familiar with - chattel slavery and the birth of The African Diaspora.

Ah… don’t look away from this part, kids. You asked and I’m going to tell you like it is.

There are families that can trace their history back to a certain time period. Most descendants of the enslaved can’t. Their real names were taken away from them, their cultures were stripped, their beliefs were gone, and sometimes, hope was removed from the equation. And then “eventually” comes.

Eventually… Black people were freed.
Eventually… Black people got some rights.
Eventually… Black people start to get some respect, but not full respect, from other races.

We’re tired of looking for “eventually… we can finally have respect from others” because clearly, you’re not giving it to us. When we do try to establish something of value, some sort of strong history, it gets taken away from us.

What we’re doing with BlackoutDay is to say “well, we love us. We want to connect with other Black people. We want to learn what we’re capable of. And we’re not going to cater to people outside of us. If they want to see the discussion, that’s fine. If they want to make sure that our discussion isn’t silence, that’s cool. If they want to turn it off, we don’t care.”

So, think of BlackoutDay as the one of many channels on social media. If you don’t want to tune in, you can always turn it off. However, if you’re going to talk to us without acknowledging the history, you might as well not talk to us at all.

SLEEPY LIFE OF SERVAMP- ENGLISH TRANSLATION



Hello everyone! Look what I am presenting to you ^_^ I’ve been working on this for a couple of days and it was my first time doing subtitles! I tried my best to cover up the Chinese ones, ending up with YouTube-style captions.
Please note that it’s not very accurate and some parts I had to rely on context, because I just couldn’t comprehend what they were saying at certain points (if only I had the first SLS comics…)
For now, I hope you enjoy it as it is and  I will make a post that’s gonna be full of notes and all the things I had to do while translating, hoping to give you a better understanding (such as why I used certain meanings for example).

Without further ado, please enjoy it!
Also, I wrote in the beginning of the video that I would like for the video to not be uploaded on other sites. It’s OK if you want to post the link on other social media so that others can watch it here. Thank you!

anonymous asked:

I have to strongly disagree with your meta about Katsuki not being abusive. He absolutely IS abusive toward Deku. I'd advise you to do a little more research on abuse, since there are different forms. It's not all about possession. And what Katsuki shows is definitely still abuse, regardless of the feelings that cause it. Acting out like that, whether it's in fear or hate or love, is still abuse. He's not just a bully (they are actually beginner abusers anyway). He's abusive. 1/2

Post for context -> (x)

Hello nony! Since I already presented my interpretations on the post so it’d be just reinforcing points I already stated, I’m just going to go over what you pointed out that I didn’t cover before. As I said, I do not condone Katsuki’s ill behavior towards Deku but I still don’t interpret him as an abuser - I do understand where you come from though and how people can interpret him as such.

I agree with you on the bit about the writer’s opinion of their own work not being necessarily determinant, specially when the work speaks for itself, and it’s something I forgot to point out on the response to the anon. Take for example Twilight’s and 50 Shades of Grey’s authors treating the relationships in their respective books as romantic, not abusive. However, Horikoshi has been relatively consistent at making BNHA a self aware narrative (save for his approach to Mineta’s and Midnight’s harassment behavior which is pretty crappily handled like in your average shonen); Endeavor’s abuse of his child is framed as actual abuse whereas the same conditions are not applied to the relationship between Katsuki and Deku, which is constantly reinforced as a growing center line to the story - while also aknowledgind Katsuki’s ill behavior and framing it as bad, and punishing his character for it.

That’s not to affirm it’d be bad if Katsuki was explicitly written to be an abusive character or if it was bad to like him if that was the case, though. One can like a problematic character or ship as long as they can tell fiction from real life and aknowledge it’s not okay behavior irl. Honestly if I knew a real person like Katsuki I’d hate them, and if I knew two people like Katsuki and Deku, I’d never support them getting together. People ship because it’s about characters, tools of a story they’re invested in and their potential in terms of a interesting narrative - which may not always be entirely happy or healthy.

That’s where I stand! I want to thank you for disagreeing with me in a polite manner plus stating your opinion in a reasonable way. It’s unfortunately rare to see on tumblr fandoms.

anonymous asked:

I'm not saying this to hurt you or to police your blog. You do you <3 Since you asked for honesty: what keeps me from enjoying your writing lately is the way you advertise it/yourself. Too many self-reblogs, tagging your own fics as fic rec, whining when not getting asks... I get it, we all want attention and exposure, but I personally feel you are overdoing it and it's killing the joy by making your content (which i enjoy!) feel enforced with desperate means which leads to responses of defiance

You know, someone usually says this once every couple of years and it always takes me by surprise … because this kind of thing is what Tumblr is all about. There are two types of people on this site: those who create content and those who reblog it. I create.

Now some of the people who create things are lucky and gain a quick and wide following, so they don’t really need to promote themselves too much, but the rest of us do– and I know I’m not the only one who does.

The content I create for this site is something that I’m proud of, especially the writing. I work very hard on each of my pieces and I treat the feedback I get on each story as fuel to keep on writing the next. If I don’t get feedback, I stop writing, and writing is the only thing in this world that makes me feel accomplished. So yeah, I self promote and I self reblog, and I get depressed when no one seems to like the work that I’ve poured my soul into. It’s tough, and it may seem like I’m begging for attention but really, I’m begging for purpose, and I’m not going to be shy or ashamed about that.

And putting all that aside, I asked for honesty on my one particular story, because I wanted to make sure that it was good enough for you guys. So you can say that you didn’t intend for this comment to “hurt me” all you want, but it seems like that was really its only goal, and it succeeded.

This site is all about self-promotion and exposure. I don’t understand why people get so surprised that I utilize it.

post-blackout thoughts

i think something that consumers of fan content need to understand when they enter fandom is that they are entitled to nothing. 

the mere existence of fandom is due to the fact that a group of people who happen to enjoy the same source material have decided to come together to bond over their common interests. for some people, that’s just talking/texting about it. for others, it’s creating online group chats to try and create friends. for others more it’s sharing theories, making headcanons, and talking about plots and character development. 

for content creators, we do this through our art. we write, we draw, we edit, we do voice work. that’s how we enjoy fandom. we pour what we love into something else that we love. that’s all it is really. i really think that people forget that writers and artists don’t just put stuff out there for other people. sometimes we want to add things to fandom sure, but other times we’re just doing what we love and sharing it with the world because we’re proud of it. 

you’re not entitled to that

you don’t get to decide how our art is used because it happens to feature a show/book/movie you like. you don’t get to post it on other sites without our permission because you wanted to. you don’t get to treat us like amorphous machines who just continue to mindlessly spit out content for you to get your grubby hands on. we show off our talents and merely ask for some respect in return. because we are artists. we have a craft. that craft is special and we ask that you acknowledge that. 

when an artist doesn’t feel respected by the audience they’re sharing their work with, they don’t sit there and take the abuse. they remove their work and put it elsewhere. because no one likes seeing their own creations be taken by others and treated as if they belong to everybody. 

fanfiction doesn’t belong to you. fanart doesn’t belong to you. you have been given the privilege of having access to it because the creator has given you that privilege. and they can take it away very easily if they feel the privilege is being abused. it’s very simple. so you’re not allowed to treat it like it’s yours when it’s there, and you’re not allowed to get mad at artists when they take it away as if it belonged to you in the first place. take a step back and realize what you’re doing: you’re acting like you have a say in how something that isn’t yours is handled. that’s called entitlement. 

if this blackout has done anything, let it at least teach some of you that you own nothing but what you create with your own hands. if you didn’t make it, you have no right to decide what happens to it. that right solely belongs to the creator. stop treating fandom like some thrift shop that you can go rifling through in order to pick out what you like and wear it out the store. treat everything you see with consideration and respect, and remember your position as a consumer. 

From a Very Annoyed Artist:

Can Anti-Shippers please stop being whiny pissbabies over the fact that their favorite artist of one ship ships a ship that they find problematic as well?

Because your favorite artist isn’t there to cater to you, wether or not you give them notes. They’re going to draw something that they enjoy regardless of what you think. And if you’re too childish to scroll past the ship you don’t like, and find the work of a ship you do like, here is my advice:

• Get off of tumblr. Because there are going to be MANY things you don’t like in this site, I think it’d be better if you just leave before you start getting all ‘offended’ that someone may share some likeness with you, but not all.

• Learn that no one here, nor on this earth, is here to cater to you personally. Get out of your high chair and put down the milk bottle. It’s time to grow up and learn how to deal with things that doesn’t involve crytyping about how your favorite artist doesn’t agree with everything you think, and that you’re not going to support the rest of their fabulous work because of it.

Three Things (I/III)

wow so I got home from my college class today and this suddenly popped into my head and I had to write it. it was originally supposed to be a drabble type thing but then it got too long for a drabble so I turned it into a drabble sort of mini series :) so, enjoy my first ever piece of writing on this site !!

Genre: Romance/Fluff

Pairing: You x Baekhyun 

Word Count: 1,325

Summary: There weren’t many things that Baekhyun kept from you, in fact, there were only three. Three things that he wasn’t necessarily hiding, but nor was he in a rush to have them known. Now, these three things were not like most secrets some couples kept from one another. It had nothing to do with a dark past that he could have been hiding from you. They had nothing to do with old flames coming back into the picture. These three little secrets held so much power but at the same time would be so insignificant were they to be admitted to anyone else but you. They would not change the world, they would not harm your relationship, and they certainly wouldn’t make you see him in a different light, however, that didn’t make them any more easy to confess.




“The first one I knew to be true on this exact date three years ago.” He said with a deep breath and quivering hands. The paper he held tightly between both of his hands shook like a leaf in the wind. You couldn’t tell if it was because he was excited or if it was because of the way he was allowing his emotions to run rampant and consume every fibre of his being in front of so many people, even if they were the ones closest to him. He had only ever opened his heart this much in front of only you, and even then it was never in words but rather small, simple, seemingly insignificant actions.

The way he would lightly brush his lips against your temple in the early hours of the morning when he thought you were still lost in sleep before he would soon have to get up and go to dance practice with the rest of the guys.

The way he would drape his coat over your shoulders on the way back home when he saw you shivering, despite your attempts to act tougher than the frigid winds that cut through you like a knife. You’d always feel bad and immediately insist on him taking it back. Claiming that it was your fault for not bringing your jacket and walking home cold would teach you not to forget it next time. Baekhyun would smile and wrap an arm around your shoulders, pulling you into his side and placing a feather light kiss to the top of your head. And it was when he pulled you to his side that you could feel it. He was just as cold as you were. You didn’t fight him anymore, knowing that you’d get no response other than his signature box smile and loud boisterous laugh as he rebuffed your claim. So instead, you snuggled closer into his side as the two of you walked as a way to share your warmth.

You could feel it in the way he made love to you. Soft kisses along your collar bones and up the curve of your neck where his facial features would eventually break out into a soft smile that you could feel against your skin. The way his hands roamed, confident, but always careful and attentive to what you were feeling. The way he always put your needs before his own, “Because it’s what my princess deserves”. The way he would pull you onto his chest after you were taken care of, drawing soft patterns on your shoulder blades until you were lulled to sleep.

It was even when you fought that you could feel his love shine through.

“ I honestly don’t remember what we had fought about. But I remember everything else so vividly. I raised my voice and she had yelled back even louder because that’s how (y/n) is. She has such a fighting spirit it scares me sometimes.” He said with a nervous chuckle. The room around you erupted with quiet laughter and you immediately blushed a crimson red. Baekhyun was the only person in this room to have seen you so infuriated.

“I remember there was one particular part of the fight that we both had gotten so heated over that I had nearly called everything off between the two of us right then and there.”

He had to pause to take a shaky breath in before he could continue. It was as if he was reliving it. You knew you were and you could feel your eyes starting to water at the memory, regret still present even after all this time.

“I remember the look on her face the second those words had fallen from my lips. I wanted to take them back right then and there, but things are not so easy. Her sadness quickly became anger and an angry (y/n) is not one you want to see, trust me.” He fake shuddered with a sheepish grin for an added effect and the room erupted once again.

You sat in wonder and watched the man in front of you joke about the worst fight you two had ever had as a couple. While it looked like he was aloof and comfortable to anyone else as he joked about the fight you knew better. The way his shoulders were held tight and the way his grip on the piece of paper in his hands tightened gave him away completely. It was hard for him to talk about it.

“I watched as the storm clouds behind her eyes became an angry flurry of one part anger and ninety-nine parts sadness. And I can remember sitting against the wall with her curled against my chest that night as she choked on her sobs over the thought of me leaving. And looking back at it I can remember thinking in my head about what things would be like if I had left.”

You bit your lip to hold back a smile and your tears. He had left out the part where you had been so distraught over the possibility of losing him that within seconds your sadness had converted into anger and before you knew it you were slamming your hands against his shoulders and yelling at him to “Just leave already”.

But what you hadn’t known at that time is that Baekhyun had seen right through your anger. And if only to prove what he already knew, after the third hard shove you left on his chest hot tears started to fall down your face and a choked sob escaped your throat. You would have crumpled to the floor had he not have caught you by your arms and pulled you to his chest. He shushed you as he gently slid the two of you down the wall that was against his back and onto the hardwood floor.

You clung tightly onto the front of his shirt as you hyperventilated as if your hold on him were the only thing keeping him beside you and not walking out the door like you had told him to do not minutes ago. He wrapped his arms around you and kissed the top of your head repeatedly as he let you cry into his chest.

“I-I didn’t mean it.” You had choked through your now subsiding sobs. His eyes softened as he stared down at you.

“Shush, baby. I know, I didn’t mean it either. I’m not going anywhere.” He whispered while tucking your head beneath his chin.

It had continued on like that for nearly an hour. The two of you sat on the floor just outside of your kitchen, each of you apologizing for those things that were said and done that had led up to this. The two of you hadn’t had a fight like that since.

“And just thinking about leaving had made my heart plummet down to the floor and the air to leave my lungs. And I began to think that if I felt that way just thinking about leaving, I’d surely have died if I did leave her that night.”

Baekhyun turned to where you were seated just beside him, looking like the only angel he had ever needed, all dressed in white. You even had your own halo, invisible to yourself and all others besides Baekhyun himself. He smiled down at you where you sat silent and teary-eyed. His chocolate colored eyes trained intently on your own.

“My first secret (y/n), is that I’m unconditionally and inexplicably in love with you.”

And just like that, a choking sound mixed between a laugh and a sob escaped your lips as you smiled up at him where he stood in all his regal glory. You almost didn’t hear the chorus of “aww's” and the loud whooping that you knew had to have come from none other than Mr. Park Chanyeol and Kim Jongdae.

anonymous asked:

So what does working in archaeology actually entail and how did you realize this was what you wanted to do?

Sorry this took so long to answer, I was finishing my dissertation!

But to answer your first question, it entails a lot of things! Some archaeologists spend most of their days out in the field digging. Some spend most of their days out in the field sorting through all the finds and sifting spoil. Some spend most of their time in the lab, analysing what’s been dug up. Some spend their time pouring over animal bones or bits of pottery, seeing what they can learn from them. Some are running complicated lab tests, like strontium isotope analysis, or reassembling bits of a mosaic. Some, it’s writing reports and getting articles and books published, or taking care of a website that houses all these publications.

For me personally, being an archaeologist entails a few things. I have my job at a museum, where I give tours about archaeology and teach kids what it’s like to be an archaeologist. I also do research into various topics (most notably, accessibility in museum and heritage site settings), and put together learning materials both for the public and for fellow archaeologists. I also run this blog, where I answer questions when they come my way and try to raise awareness on different topics, especially accessibility and ableism. 

Basically, being an archaeologist can look like a lot of things! I personally can’t stand excavating, it’s not something that I enjoy, and I know plenty of archaeologists that are ready to simply dismiss me because I work more on the heritage end of things, but that doesn’t make me any less of an archaeologist than them. 

The first time I knew this was what I wanted to do was when I was in field school for the first time - it was the heritage field school, so though we did spend a day digging, we spent most of our time developing an audio guide and brochure to go with it. I enjoyed it so much, it genuinely felt like everything I had done in my life had been equipping me for that experience. All the things I did in my spare time, all my previous jobs, everything I had learned, it was all being utilised in developing and creating the guide and brochure (especially the brochure). I had a similar experience recently in Catalhoyuk - I felt like I was doing what I had been designed to do, to sound incredibly cheesy. 

Hope that helps!!

anonymous asked:

Not to be confrontational but I think from your fanfic critique post I feel like fanfic seems just be an ego trip to get accolades for all the "feels" one can elicit. If critique is not something an author is looking for then what is the point? They just want applause but don't want to bother with producing good writing? They don't want to have to improve or edit or rewrite? I'll be honest, fanfic in general is lousy writing that borrows from other authors. I guess I just don't get it.

People don’t write to be critiqued on their writing.

I’ve been writing since I was five (maybe younger), and never once have I written something and thought, gee, I really hope I get a lot of critiques on this. Critiques are a necessary part of the process, to get better, to improve work that you’ve written, to know what to do better next time, but they’re not why anyone writes.

I write because I love to, because it makes me happy, because I have to. Because the words are there, one way or another. And I share my writing to make other people happy.

And yes, the validation feels nice. Having someone else tell me they love my story makes me happy. The same is true for artists, for musicians, for dancers, for anyone who produces a product. People don’t produce them to be told what’s wrong with them.

I want you to consider something about fanfiction, while you’re busy disparaging it. I’ve posted 575886 words of fanfiction on Archive of Our Own. That’s not the amount of fanfiction I’ve written, just the amount that I’ve shared on this one particular site. I did none of that for pay. I got nothing monetary or physical from that. It was my own time, at the cost of time to do other things, because it’s something I genuinely enjoy doing, and that other people enjoy reading. Some people have written millions of words of fanfiction. For free. So don’t you think we deserve something for that work, even if it’s just someone else telling us that they enjoyed the work we produced for them? Because they don’t all think none of us write well.

Dante’s Inferno was Bible fanfiction. So was Paradise Lost. The award-winning musical Wicked was a college!AU fanfiction of The Wizard of Oz. Good luck convincing people those are lousy writing that borrows from other authors.

I’d tell you to read some fanfiction to see what you’re missing, but frankly, you don’t deserve it.

it makes me sad that dnp ONLY interact on their twitters. like, we're here tooo? i feel like they don't exactly appreciate their followers on any other platform, or really in general? like, we spend hours drawing and animating and making gifs, and they mostly only rb maddox's phanart, and that's only sometimes. (no hate i love her). they don't exactly appreciate us & i feel like they take us for granted. opinions?

i think that a lot of the content made in the tumblr phandom is for us (as in the phandom). i know i get annoyed at notices and the lack of on tumblr but i think dan and phil just… don’t get it. i’m sure, no matter how down to earth you are, there will be a point where a “famous” person will stop spending their time meticulously liking every art piece and gif. so just make stuff for yourself ya know? make things you enjoy and are proud of. that’s what i do to comfort myself in the lonely void of this site

I'm a crocheter and I've been trying to teach myself to knit and have been struggling. Do you have any tips?

I really apologize for not realizing that this little message was hiding in my inbox for almost a month.  I really try to not let things set, but this escaped me.

So to business…

It’s a very common complaint amongst knitters and crocheters that it is difficult to switch between the two techniques.  Most people end up preferring one over the other, but that doesn’t mean that you can’t learn to do it!  I am a knitter most of the time, but can crochet a little as it is very useful in finishing knitting projects.  

My best suggestion is to start simple.  I know that seems like silly advice, but it really is best to start out with a small easy project that will help you learn the ropes, but that you won’t get bogged down in forever.  Cowls and neckwarmers are great first projects for that reason.  

If you have a favorite weight of yarn for crocheting, maybe try using that weight for knitting as well.  It will already feel comfortable in your hands, so you won’t be fighting the yarn so much.  If you don’t have a favorite weight, try out worsted weight.  It’s a good medium weight that allows you to easily see your stitches without having your hands too full with chunky yarn and large needles.

Youtube is your friend!  There are lots of good videos out there showing how to do all sorts of cool, fun, and useful techniques.  The other great thing about Youtube is that there are many people showing many different ways of approaching knitting.  A wonderful part of knitting (and crocheting) is there is often more than one way to do something.  Watch some videos and see if you can find someone who speaks to you in a way that makes the most sense.

Other great resources are the knitting and crocheting site Ravelry.com.  You do have to sign up for an account, but it is completely free and there are boards where you can discuss troubleshooting with other crafters, a database of thousands of patterns, and a portfolio to help you organize your own crafts.  Definitely one of my favorite sites.  I also enjoy the blog/webzine Knitty, which has some very helpful posts about knitting techniques at all skill levels and tons of great free patterns, organized by difficulty.  New issues come out quarterly, so they are always releasing new things to try.
