Nothing more enjoyable than a 9 hour library session 😒 want to be properly prepared for my Algebra and Combinatorics exam tomorrow though, and I’m going over everything in detail so I can be prepared? At least my housemates are in the library too, the last week of term just means deadlines and essays, but we’re having a mini Christmas on Friday before we all go back to parents houses so I’ve got that to look forward to! It doesn’t feel like December when all you’re thinking about is the work that you’ve got to do 📝📓

All this bad blood here
Won’t you let it dry?
It’s been cold for years
Won’t you let it lie?

right! i would like to add that even though i dislike bbc sherlock strongly, and i have been reblogging a lot of anti-sherlock posts in the last two weeks, i take no pleasure in how much the fandom is hurting right now. like, this is horrible. this is so horrible. what the writers did to you guys, queerbaiting you for six years, is awful. i am so sorry and my heart goes out to you all. i would like to apologize if it seems like i’m enjoying this, because i’m truly not, in fact, it’s been upsetting me so much ive been having trouble sleeping for the last 3 days and ive been dissosciating most of the time because i am just so upset, and i’ve been trying to turn that into humor, but now i’m worried that my attempts to compartmentalize with humor are making me look like i think this is funny. i don’t. i’m ace and autistic and a decent human being, and seeing queer fans get shit on and disrespected like this is honestly just so terrible. i’m so sorry, everyone. :( the lgbt community deserves better.

The Best Birthday Gift

Rating: NSFW smut (mature), fluff
Summary: Chris Evans x Reader where for Chris’ birthday, you give him the best birthday gift of all. 
A/N: Lmao yes, I know it’s late for Chris’ birthday buuuuuut it’s set around about now, towards the end of July/start of August. You’ll see why. ;)
______________________________________

When you woke up on the morning of his birthday, you made him a tasty breakfast, gave him some gifts and showered him with affection which would eventually lead to what you had planned for the night.

He wanted to spend a few hours of his birthday by going out to explore parts of Massachusetts, be it the woodlands or the cities. After spending a few enjoyable hours venturing around with him, he insisted you invite his family over so he could spend some time with them, on the car ride home. 

You of course agreed because not only does the birthday boy get what he wants, but also because his family were the best.

Well thank you very much, I’m glad to hear you enjoy The Studio and all its benefits.

Drinking Game (1/22)

Alisha wanted to squeeze the last few hours of enjoyment out of her Sunday by unwinding with a pretty cocktail in her hand. To this end, she made the trip out of her apartment to a little bar several blocks away. It wasn’t the nicest place she’d ever been to, but the drinks were fairly-priced and the ambiance was rather peaceful. Settling in at the counter, Alisha waited for the bartender to notice her. When she felt someone brush against her elbow, she figured it was an accident and ignored it. She waved the bartender over but before she could speak, the gentleman beside her began to order. 

She’ll have a Cosmo, on me.

“Oh.” She smiled politely at the unfamiliar face, shaking her head and declining. “You don’t have to do that. Thank you though.”   

Apple Martini then?

“I appreciate the offer, but I’d just like to buy my own drink. Thank you again, though.”

Ridiculous 6

Adam Sandler’s newest film, “Ridiculous 6,” just hit streaming devices everywhere this week, and I image it’s going to stir up some shit based on a) my generations obsession with Netflix and b) the current sjw trend that is at least found abundantly on tumblr.

I just got done watching the film, and I really enjoyed it. Is it some great philosophical film that will win all the awards at the Oscars? No, but it was an enjoyable 2 hours watching it, at least to me. The cinematography was pretty awesome though.

The film satires Native American stereotypes, but what western doesn’t, and one of the themes of the film was pointing out and making fun of western film cliches. There was a scandal about native Americans walking off the set during filming, but it was only like 4 people out of hundreds, and they ended up coming back to finish shooting.

I think the film actually portrays race and disability in a positive light. None of the Ridiculous 6 bat an eye at the fact that one is half black, and another half Mexican. They treat Little Pete, who quite obviously has some sort of mental or developmental disability with kindness, and never call him stupid, and idiot, or retarded. They also not only accept “Herm” with his muteness, but actively attempt to include his thoughts and ideas into their conversations, when he can’t actually speak real words.

In the 1800s, it would have been unheard of for a bunch of white brothers to accept two mixed race siblings into the group.

Sandler’s performance in the film wasn’t the greatest, but even though he was the “main” character, he didn’t really hog the screen time.

If you have access to Netflix, I’d say watch it if you’ve got the time. It’s not a half bad movie, and any flack it has gotten, and will get, for whatever racial/sjw cause, is undeserved.

Books are the perfect entertainment: no commercials, no batteries, hours of enjoyment for each dollar spent. What I wonder is why everybody doesn’t carry a book around for those inevitable dead spots in life.

To all the staff at ArenaNet,

I wanted to write this letter to say… well, I suppose I want to thank you all, and tell you a quick story about how Guild Wars 2 genuinely changed my life. And I wasn’t sure where to send it, so here seemed as good a place as any!

I started playing Guild Wars shortly before Nightfall was released, and I’ve been a solid fan ever since, with 12 characters in the original game and 13 (at the moment!) in Guild Wars 2. I’m something of an altoholic!

In all honesty, I could write a letter simply thanking you for Guild Wars 1&2 themselves, because I know I’ve had thousands of hours of enjoyment out of them. Still, the main reason I am actually writing this is a little closer to my heart.

In 2011, I joined a fansite called guildwars2roleplayers.com, hoping to connect with other players who wanted to roleplay in Guild Wars 2 when it released. I made several friends there in the build-up to the game’s release, and in the first beta weekend a whole gaggle of us from the EU logged in and were chatting in a group Skype call while we played – and there in the group with us was my now boyfriend.

I played Elementalist; he played Warrior. I rolled a human; he rolled a charr. I live in England… he lives in Australia. We became fast friends in the beta weekends, thrashing out a backstory for how our characters could possibly have met and not killed one another (seeing as I am a writer myself it became quite the tale!), and our friendship grew from there.

This Christmas we finally met in person for the first time - over three years after we got together online. We couldn’t help but muse on how far we’d come from that first beta weekend, and also how much has stayed the same. Both of us have taken time away from Guild Wars 2 since its release, but we got back into playing recently, and one of the results of that was finally getting to sit and play together in the same room. It was great to experience Heart of Thorns that way!

We’re back to being long-distance again now, but our time together this Christmas has convinced both of us that we want to make this work. From usernames on a forum, through avatars in-game, and past the logistics of my being a single-parent in England while he lives 10,500 miles away! We’ve overcome so many obstacles to get to this point, and we’re both determined to make it the rest of the way too.

I’ve always been a strong believer in the fact that online games and communities are positive things that bring people together. Some of my earliest interactions on the internet were with people who I formed good friendships with. Still. I will admit that I never expected to meet the love of my life on a roleplaying forum – or that he would be almost literally on the other side of the world!

And of course, without your game, none of this would have happened. I would never have found myself roaming Tyria (and getting flattened by everything while I learnt to dodge!), and he would never have taken pity on a poor squishy elementalist and kept me alive in those early days.

So, thank you all, for giving us such a beautiful world to explore. Playing Heart of Thorns together on New Year’s Day felt like coming home. And now that we’re apart again, we can still wander Maguuma together. As different in real life as our avatars are, but perfect companions all the same.

All the best (and I can’t end without a faint plea that some day our feet might re-tread Cantha’s shores!),
