even the people on this list

WOW  — just wow. I hit 1k followers just about five months ago and last night i actually reached that 2k milestone  🎉 I’m a little bit speechless, because i never thought that so many people would enjoy and love those shitty edits of mine and would actually want to talk to me about my fave characters, my life and literally just anything? It’s amazing and i’m beyond grateful for all of the support and appreciate each and everyone of you; especially my lovely mutuals. And even though all of this is still beyond me, i wanted to give the following people a big and plushy shoutout!
Thanks for following and i love you, guys!  💜

@banesfuture  💜
of course my sweet parabatai has to be the first person on my list that’s going to be mentioned  — i don’t make the rules. mags, you lovely human being. i don’t think i can put my feelings for you into words that actually make sense, but i’m going to try. you’re one of the most amazing people i ever got to meet and i’m beyond grateful for your existence. we’re basically the same person which, let’s be honest, sometimes creeps the shit out of us, but at the end of the day that’s probably one of the reasons why i love you as much as i do. you share my love for harry shum jr and don’t even get me started on necks and collarbones and all the thirst (yes, we need some holy water, babe.) you also share my love for poetry and prose and you’re one of those people i can talk to about literally anything. you talk to me about life changing decisions, drag me for my typos, encourage and support me to be the best version of myself, send me cute pictures of your kitties to cheer me up, send me funny memes and videos, bless my day with your beautiful selfies and most importantly you’re always there for me. and you always make sure that i never forget about that. i’m honoured to be your friend and i love you so much!

DAMN GURL is the first thing that comes to my mind when i think about you, brooke. you’re not only one of the most beautiful and sweet girls i have ever seen (please never ever stop sending me those gorgeous selfies!) but also one strong and genuinely kind and caring person. you’re like a little sister to me, except for the fact that i’m the vodka mom friend™ and your mom would probably kick me out within two weeks :’) i love that you speak your mind and how enthusiastic you are when you talk about the things you love. you’re so open minded, share my sense of humour and i can have those 3AM kinda conversations with you at any time of the day. i’m so so glad that you’re a part of my life and that i’m able to call you my fufe. i love you! … and don’t forget the fact that, if someone were to hurt you, i’d fly over to the US in a second to wreak vengeance for you c; #lol

@canislytherinthings  💜
where do i start when it comes to you, yael? god. i remember the day i saw that you followed me and how i instantly freaked out for a second and had to remind myself that i’m an adult and that we fangirl in silence c; you were and always will be one of the editors i admire the most. you’re so incredibly talented   —  and i’m not only talking about gifs and editing in general, even tho i always get those heart eyes when i see you posted another one of those gorgeous sets of yours. but you’re also seriously talented in cheering me up when i’m at my worst and you make me feel like i can talk to you about anything. it doesn’t matter if it’s just fangirling and fandom talk or those moments when my anxiety is rising and it feels like it’s crushing me down; you’re there. and i can’t tell you how grateful i am for that. you’re such a kind, strong and intelligent woman and you inspire me. i love it when you talk about your religion and traveling, share your personal stories and expierences with me and the fact that i can still learn so much from you. please, don’t ever change and please, take me to jerusalem and show me the city. i love you so much!

●  @jaceslewis  💜
you’re the cutest little bean on this planet, brie. thank you so much for instantly writing me when i posted your blograte  —  we might’ve never talked if you didn’t, because i’m a shy chicken and i seriously wouldn’t want to miss you and our conversations for the world. you have a thing for poetry, just like me and are a quite talented poet yourself (even though you don’t always see that yourself) and i’m amazed at how much talent and kindness you carry in your heart and brain. the second we started talking i knew that i had made a new friend, because that’s how you treated me from the start, even though we didn’t really know each other at the time. you’re such a warm and loving person and way too precious for my anxious ass; seriously. i love your honesty, your humour, your love for stephen king and the stories about your family (#zwetschgenknödel are the best 😉) and how you’re not someone who’s quick to judge others and always makes sure the people around you are feeling welcome and good. i know you tend to underestimate yourself and that we haven’t talked that much lately, but please let me tell you that you’re an awesome human being and that you can do absolutetly everything you put your mind to. you don’t have to hide your talents, mein mädchen. i love you!

@mel-iorn  💜
it feels like i’m an open book to you, mel, but i love that feeling. when i’m talking to you i feel genuinely understood and most importantly safe. i don’t have to think about something twice when i’m talking to you, because i know i can be completely honest. you’re so open minded and i love that we share an interest and passion in other cultures and religions. if we could, we’d probably travel the whole world! i also love it when you send me poems and little texts that made you think of me, ramble in your tags and how we’re just on the same wavelength. you’re so unapologetically yourself (and that’s a gorgeous self btw!) and i admire that so much. even though we haven’t talked that much lately, it’s always a blessing to know and see you on my dash. you make me smile and i love you! (that’s a #leveup for our friendship, right? c; )

i want to throw puppies at you because you’re so perfect it frustrates me #absolutefaves  | |  blessed by your existence

Overwhelmed. This is what I’m feeling now. I just received two anonymous asks of supercorps shippers. And two of people I don’t know what they ship.
And I’m barely holding back my tears because this… This is why I belive in people.
A Supercorp just said to me she was sorry about all the hate. The other said she was sorry that we had to create a list.
All the others asked me to stay here.
And one just told me how she was abused and I that I actually helped her. I saw love growing on a field of hate. I feel so overwhelmed because people took their time to come here, for each other.
I feel like this because in the end, I was proven that hope has power, that kindness is still out there.
I’m still in awe of how even though there is hate we still see love. I just wanted it to thank all of these people that came here and say that. Thank you everyone who prove to me humanity is still worth fighting for.

Just that lucky?

I had been working at paint-your-pottery place at the mall near for 9 months. Except they don’t use a kiln, it’s acrylic paint and a spray glaze (like a spray paint). It’s great for little kids bc the wait time to pick up pieces is only about a half hour.

In that 9 months of working there I only had to deal with one bad customer. It wasn’t even that bad of an experience (guy bought something he thought was on sale but it wasn’t listed on the sign and got a little rude about it). Yet my other coworkers that hadn’t been there that long had. One story I remember ended with the customer throwing change at my co-worker and another had a customer threaten to get them fired. This was my first job but 9 months and I’ve only dealt with minor annoyances??? Seems very unlikely. 

I’ve dealt with plenty of upset people though. When I have I remember what someone who use to work there told me, “People aren’t inherently assholes” which is debatable but I don’t know what these people are dealing with in their lives rn. These people also had legit reasons to be upset, typically it was because another coworker fucked up.

There is usually only one person running the store at a time except for midday on weekends then it’s a whole whopping two. So I don’t really know how my co-workers treated customers. From what I did observe I really went the extra fucking mile for customers even when it was so busy and making people wait for things that are quick, I was constantly apologizing to people. Never had anyone get mad at me it seemed everyone could see and understand I was working alone (and they might have probably been having a better experience than usual anyway based on what some have told me).

I’m actually kind of upset they don’t have a customer survey. Not so I could see all the great things customers had to say about me, because it was clear they were having a great time. But so the manager and owner of the store could see how good I was at making their customers happy. So many asked for my name, like I don’t know what your going to do with that but sure. Are you going to call back and say what great experience you had with -myname-?

Maybe I wouldn’t have been fired. 

Note: I’m not anon and that’s alright. The worst this place could do is ask me to delete I say and fire me but they’ve already done that bit with out me saying anything. (They have asked me to tell my sister to take down her review of the store bc it was negative but that is another story)

TLDR; I feel like the luckiest person bc I never dealt with a shitty customer and I don’t know if it’s bc I’m good with people or just damn lucky

An incomplete list of things people do that even after 32 years of life still baffle me

• effectively use natural deodorant and not smell???
• nighttime shower, go to bed with wet hair, and look normal the next day?!
• say no?? when someone offers food?!
• not own cats! Wha?

Good vibes for anyone afraid of losing family over trans matters: my dad used to be extremely homophobic and transphobic, and for five years after I came out, asserted that I would never be anything but [birthname] to him. He's done a lot of changing with the help of support groups over the past year, and now introduces me as his son and with the right name. And yesterday, he let me borrow his phone and I even found my number listed under my preferred name. Don't give up hope; people can change.

good vibes !!

anonymous asked:

Do you consider yourself famous or a celebrity?

Are you kidding me?

No major convention appearances, no substantial news articles, no Wikipedia page, not even a fake Twitter/Facebook account attempting to dupe people into believing I’m really really into pictures of butts and people’s feet? Hell, even Twitter doesn’t think I’m noteworthy enough to Verify, and they Verified an account that is literally nothing but photos of dogs!

I’m about as far removed from ‘celebrity status’ as they come. It’s only RECENTLY that forums discussing “voice guesses” for games without announced cast lists have even considered throwing my name in as an option.

Romantic moments?

I’m sorry but how “Sakura walking next to Sasuke” or “Sakura hears Saauke scream ” or fake ones as “Sasuke jealous” or “Sasuke blushed” are SS moments? I truly believe I was going to read at least an intent of explain some of the “moments” of this pairing and since that list was a list of all their moments I’m pretty disappointed. I mean, I not surprise but does this people now what a real development is?

All the list have only Sakura ’s feelings and some of the interview are fake, so fake that doesn’t even had a link. I mean, is all:

How are this moments?

Sakura asking Sasuke to go on a date does they forget how Sasuke said “NO THANK YOU. ”

Or when she hugged him how he said “Go away. Don’t touch me. ”

This are canon moments, what SS fandom does is ignore everything they don’t like, is like me ignoring the fact that Sasuke was a dick to Naruto just because I like SNS or me wanting to ignore the fact that Naruto was selfish on forcing him to come back to Konoha.

Is stupid af. Because you can read all the “moments” on the manga and see how Sasuke’s reactions are, how sad and hurt Sakura looks. How they twisted Sarada’s dreams with memories on Gaiden and ignore the fact that Sakura didn’t even had a photo family.

I mean, that aren’t moments for a couple. The poke is not a romance innuendo. You know it, is on the manga, as is on the manga how Sasuke treat her like shit the 100% of the time and how he ignored her.

You can ignore all that, and twist all the moments that you want but is funny af how proud are some SS fans for that moments, I’m sure now that they don’t know what a normal or realistic relationship is.

anonymous asked:

how long did it take u to lose 100 pounds??? do u have any tips on how to lose weight??

thank you for noticing?!?!!! i didn’t even make a post annoucing it so thank you❤

i started in august of 2016 and it’s hard to give tips, it’s been a massive struggle at times and then sometimes it’s super easy. i haven’t been answering when people ask for tips bc i still have a problem with binge eating that i honestly can’t give advice on except to eat enough calories to prevent that from happening. otherwise to celebrate the 100lb loss i will list out the most reliable techniques i have used:

-ALWAYS eat breakfast. make it your biggest meal of the day comprising of at the very least 200 cal. it needs to keep you going for the rest of your day and allow your mind/body to function properly
-stay hydrated as much as possible. also try to eat water-dense foods like soup and fruit and vegs
-minimize red meat (though I’d suggest cutting out as much meat as possible) and always try to find healthy alternatives for the foods you already like so you don’t end up binging on the more calorie dense versions out of impulsiveness
-work out in the morning and stretch all the time and do something that makes you sweat at least once a day
-control your portions. use measuring cups and measure your food and watch serving sizes on labels. also imagine a plate made for a child (or just use a kids plate) and shrink your stomach capacity. this will take time but trust me it will get smaller and you’ll realize what full actually feels like
-write down what you eat and how much you work out each day and then watch for patterns
-take the stairs, walk to places if you can, always pick the more active mode of working/traveling if you are able
-don’t eat at least 4 hrs before bed. your body isn’t using those calories
-if you are out of shape and can’t work out, do yoga and heal your muscles. trust me i started not even able to do squats because of the muscle atrophy and joint strain, but you CAN do it. just be careful. start slowly and eventually you’ll be able to do so much more than you thought possible
-don’t beat yourself up and don’t hurt yourself to get to your gw. i know it’s hard but remember you’re doing this because you love yourself and you want to have what’s best for you
-shower every day. it may not seem obvious but if you have destructive eating habits then try altering your surroundings and personal care so that your mental health doesn’t suffer. eating crappy food is a cycle that makes you feel worse inside and out and causes you to crave crappy food. break the cycle.

some fav thinspo quotes:
-if you aren’t hungry for fruit or vegetables you’re not actually hungry
-this month’s choices are next month’s body
-you can make progress or excuses. only one gives you what you want
-you can’t dump trash in a river and expect the fish to thrive
-nothing tastes as good as skinny feels

Retrospective of everyone's dreams in Eternal Tsukuyomi (chapter 678)

Not counting Gaiden, novels, Boruto etcetera, chapter 678 is officially the very last chapter in which the following characters got some sort of introspection and developement by Kishimoto. Did they live up to their dreams? Did they got stronger or weaker as individuals? Let’s find out.

-to clarify, I’m going to list the dreams from the least likely to came true, to the most likely to came true-

Let’s start with the two dreams that show the life of their dreamers re-written from scratch. And it’s interesting to know that both of them came from two Kages:

Tsunade

Just like other people caught in the Tsukuyomi, Tsunade’s deepest desire is to have all of his loved ones alive and at their best (even Orochimaru). But not only that: we also have the confirmation that, despite embracing her role as Hokage, deep down Tsunade doesn’t like to be one. Purely, because being Hokage is a direct consequence of Dan’s and Hiruzen’s death and Orochimaru’s deviation to the evil side.
This bit adds a tragic shade to Tsunade’s character, as being Hokage is what constantly reminds her of her lost loved ones.
Did her dream come true?

She’s no longer the Hokage and Orochimaru is somewhat on the side of good again. So… partially.

Gaara

Despite having a closure with his father and the confirmation that everyone actually loved him when he was a baby, Gaara still dreams of having a completely different childhood, in which he was never forced to suffer and overcome hatred, and he can enjoy the love of his parents and his uncle, in addition to having Naruto, Temari and Kankuro’s affection from the very beginning.
This adds even more humanity in Gaara’s character.
Did his dream come true?
Obviously the past wasn’t re-written, but Gaara now lives with the knowledge that he was loved all along, and the sureness that Naruto, Temari and Kankuro deeply care about him, as good friends and siblings should do.

Those two were dreams in which the past was changed, now let’s look at dreams in which the present is slightly altered:

Shikamaru

Shikamaru’s secret wish can be explained with the sentence “live and let live”. He obviously wants both of his father figures to be alive and kicking… But, he also dreams of a future with no responsabilties. He knows he and Temari are meant to each other, but deep down he prefers to NOT being forced into something that involves responsability (in this case marriage but the concept can be applied to other tasks, such has being leader of the Sasuke Retreaving Squad back in part 1). Nothing new about Shikamaru’s character.
Did his dream come true?
Nope,Shikaku and Asuma are still dead and he got married. We can say that it was his nightmare that came true 

Tenten 

Tenten is sadly a parody of herself at this point (if she had a self to begin with lol). Her better known trait is to be only sane woman of her team, who always comments their antics with frustration. Something that was invented in the sping off Rock Lee: Springtime of Youth and was not present at all in the main manga.
Many said that Tenten’s dream is adorable because “she’s happy with what she already has, minus some changes”… Well I disagree. She knew Rock Lee and Guy for a very long time, but despite all those years she never came to accept them for what they are? Her deepest dream is for them to change into completely different people that are more alligned with her tastes? That’s horrible!
At least Neji is there and pretty much the same, but it’s not a redeemable aspect of Tenten’s dream.
Did her dream come true?
No, thankfully. And Neji is still dead.

Ino 

Ino’s dream is a mixed bag. She wishes to have the affection of her two crushes… I can understand her thinking about Sai, but why Sasuke? He never cared about her or even looked at her. Ino’s crush for the Uchiha is just pathetic, as well as her secret wish of being “popular with boys”, which is the lowest way to portray a woman.
At least, she also wants her father alive and proud of her, so it’s a redeeming point (half of a point, since in his last words Inoichi already stated he’s proud of her for other reasons)
Did her dream come true?
Actually, better than expected, since Ino IS the one who took action and won Sai’s affection (in Shikamaru Hiden) and eventually marry him. Sadly, Inoichi is still dead.

Rock Lee 

…I don’t know what to think about Lee’s dream. It basically shows everything we already knew about him, but in such a way that it looks like a parody of himself. Or maybe, this dream is Lee’s way to vent his “evil side”: we all knew him for his humbleness, and the fact that he bears no grudge if Naruto pretty much surpasses him in every aspects, but here Lee dreams of beating the crap out of him (and Neji, since he was his rival and they never had a rematch…).
Also, his crush for Sakura is back in full display despite never being one of Lee’s most famous traits.
One thing for sure: since there was already the spin off, Kishimoto never cared or bothered to expand Lee’s character. Sadly.
Did his dream come true?
Nope, but he still works hard to promote and pass the power of Youth to the next generation.

Hinata 

Nothing new here. Hinata sees herself leaning on Naruto’s shoulder in a romantic way, all while Neji and her sister are peeping (why, if they have the Byakugan?)
I appreciate Neji’s presence here, since it fixes Hinata’s allegedly insensitive comment about Naruto’s big and warm hand while Neji’s freash body was still at her feet… In the end, Hinata DOES care about his cousin.
I have a small nitpick though: it looks like Hinata is still too shy to see herself with Naruto, because her dream is more focused on what’s behind her instead of her main goal…
Did her dream come true?
She married Naruto, but Neji is still dead.

And now, the four dreams (and the four characters) that don’t consist of some sort of reality alterations, and instead just look at the future.

Kiba 

…well, it’s still a future than can happen, if Kiba decided to work hard.
Sadly, it also shows that Kishimoto didn’t care in the slightest about Kiba as a character or human being, so he just took the two most memorable traits (or should I say his two traits, period?) and voilà, here’s Kiba in a nutshell.
Did his dream come true?
No, and he’s still delusional about being worthy of the Hokage title. 

Shino 

I’m not going to bash this dream like Kiba’s. Yes, bugs are the only traits of Shino’s character, but unlike the dogs for Kiba, Shino doesn’t wish to force his love for bugs into everyone else’s life. Shino just wants to be a proud member of Aburame’s clan, and to contribute in improving the clan’s reputation with new bugs (which means new and more powerful assets to fight with).
While Shino really needs to get a life outside of his ninja job, his dedication to it is still admirable.
Did his dream come true?
We don’t know, sadly.

Mei 

Unlike Ino’s, Mei’s dream about men and love is more mature. I mean, Mei doesn’t just wish a man, she also wishes to make up her mind and settle down for good, which is better than just being contested as a prize.
Mei also wishes for the ninja alliance to last forever, as confirmed by all the other kages attending her wedding.
(One can guess she also wants to be the fairest of the land, looking by Tsunade’s look of envy on her face, but I can’t say for sure)
Did her dream come true?
Yes, the alliance between the kages and the nation is as united as ever.
No, she doesn’t get married (or at least she’s not the fairest in the land anymore, in chapter 700 she looks like she really let herself go…)

Choji 

Choji’s dream is the most down to earth and humble of the bunch. He dreams of his life being pretty much the same, but with the addiction of a girl who loves him inside and (especially) out. We can say that even in his own dream world Choji still has insecurities, since the only girl who finds him attractive is a fetishist and, despite being happy and proud, Choza still has something to say about her.
Did his dream come true?
As for the ability to eat as much food as he wants, it was already fulfilled.
As for the girl, things worked out even better since he scored with a woman who’s perfectly sane and married him without caring that much about his monstrous appetite.

anonymous asked:

Do I find it problematic when casting directors cast big name celebrities? Like with BatB, I wouldn't careless who played Belle but when I heard Emma Watson, I groaned because she's a big a-list celebrity. Like even in Animated films, when majority of the cast is a-list (where the cast diverse or not) I tend to avoid it at all cost. It just bothers me that there isn't enough talent to show other actors new things.

I wouldn’t mind big names if it were people who had actual acting clout to back it up… but I would prefer casting lesser-knowns and unknowns. I keep lamenting over how Gugu Mbatha-Raw was basically wasted in this film in particular and I’m dreading the casting for films like The Little Mermaid and whatever else they have coming down the pike.

With 19 more live-action remakes planned, it looks like its a trend that won’t be ending any time soon.

I Love Myself Because...

This is funny, because I really really don’t, but hey!! My literal favorite blogger tagged me and asdfghjkl, ya know?

The second writing challenge I ever partook in was the lovely and beautiful @percussiongirl2017’s Barely Legal Challenge and I’m glad I’ve followed her since! 😊

I’m doing this on @wrenwritesometimes, even though @percussiongirl2017 tagged my @i-stare-sometimes blog… cuz people I know IRL and don’t know I write or get tagged in shit follow that one.. XD

Anyway:

I Love Myself Because Rules -
Post a selfie and list five to ten reasons you love yourself. Then tag 10 people who need to know how much they love themselves because honestly, we all need a reminder sometimes.

(((My first “selfie” posted publicly online!!1! Yay?? ((It’s taken by fellow band member, but it was in selfie mode, so like. Bite me. 😘)) Dressed all snazzy ((if you could tell.. at all?)) for a band festival.)))

1. I guess you could say that I’m funny. Therefore I guess I should love my humor… 50% of the time.

2. I love that I love the things I love. Certain fandoms have brought me closer to myself and others. 👍🏻

3. I love that I put myself down on behalf of others…
Sounds horrible, I know, but I would literally rather shove my own foot in my mouth than watch other people get ridiculed for that shit. I’m used to it, I guess, so why not?

4. I love myself because my hair is fucking so soft, Iain’t even gonna fucking lie… it’s the softest thing I’ve ever touched.

5. I love myself for my role in band. I love my band environment. So fucking much. Was in leadership for trailer this year and I felt like a BAMF. A stressed bamf, but a bamf regardless.

6. I love myself for my taste in music. It’s all over the damn place, but… it’s some good shit.

7. I love myself for how I am with kids? Strangely enough? I love interacting with babs and making them feel like they’re my whole world.
Backfires sometimes, but sometimes it’s wORTH it.

8. I love myself because myself because I think I should trust my pet. Pet is my pal.

9. I love myself because even throughout all the shit that my brain has put me through, I don’t let that keep me down and I try to laugh and shake it off.

10. I love myself for the friends I keep.
Some are bad, some are toxic, some are groundbreakingly amazing.
We need diversity in these aspects of social life, so that we can recognize an unstable and unhealthy relationship.
I’ve dropped the ball a few times, but like… it’s made me who I am.

And I guess that’s okay. 


I’mma tag, even though they don’t hafta do this:

@imnoaingeal, @theimpossibleg1rl, @livelovelike555, @ghoulishfigure, @notnaturalanahi, @deepdarkfandom, @imamotherfuckingstar-lord

That’s all I gots… 🤣

The Secret Diary of Raven Queen

The Secret Diary of Raven Queen is simply, enchanting

Oh, sorry, but you know how it is with Ever After High: a review without a weird and sometimes out of place fairytale pun would not be Ever After High. 

For those who don’t know, Ever After High is a Mattel franchise of fashion dolls, books, and animation, of which, actually, I’m a pretty big fan. Unfortunately I don’t see many people talking about the books in this series, of which listings confirm there are quite a few. This volume, the Secret Diary of Raven Queen, is actually the first EAH book I’ve read, even though I own, like, three actually. 

This is actually a very nice volume. It’s breezy and easy to read–fitting since it’s written for kids–and it manages quite a bit of show for a volume that is so slim that some characters have only single-digits worth of lines. It’s about the content of a single 20-minute episode of something, so there isn’t much, or any, time devoted to side character development. I think my knowledge of dolls and media helped fill in many of the blanks, so I’m not sure someone who didn’t know about those things would find this book quite as appealing. 

It’s an expansion, not exactly a stand alone. 

However, as an EAH fan, it made me immediately want to pull further volumes from my library and sit down to read them all. My editing brain, which usually doubles the time spent with a book for its constant ‘I would have certainly written that differently’, was only activated once the entire time. Basically, I was pretty well engrossed. 

The ending ends up being one of the weakest parts, rushing by in only a few pages. And for those wishing for more character and lore development, you won’t find much here. Still, there’s a surprising amount of nuance at times, even though EAH developments can be clumsily handled and sigh-fully black-and-white. 

THAT, maybe I’d write differently. But that’s a matter to take up with, well, Mattel.

Hello! I love this blog and I spent hours on it for research! Is there any way we can thank you for working so hard on helping everyone?

Kiriska: We’re glad this blog is helpful!

One of the best ways to support HTBACA is to follow and support its contributors. Becca (Nattosoup) and I are both share our work on a variety of platforms, listed on our About page, along with some referral and tip jar links, if you’re inclined. 

Becca recently launched her kids’ comic, 7″ Kara, as a webcomic. Go give it a follow! And even if it’s not for you, maybe share it with some people in your life? Don’t underestimate the power of a reblog. I go to like 20 conventions a year. Come say hello! It’s always lovely meeting people who’ve been helped by the blog.

Reblogging and sharing our individual work is immensely beneficial. We run HTBACA because we enjoy contributing to the artist community and sharing our thoughts and experiences, but our first priority will always be our own work and our businesses, so your sharing that allows us to continue giving time to this blog for free.

You can also consider using one of our referral links if you (or someone you know!) are thinking of signing up for Square. Our Amazon referral links are also great if you know you’re going to buy something (anything!) from Amazon. Every dollar in the tip jars help too. :)

One last thing you can do is consider contributing to the blog yourself! If you try out a new supplier, go to a new con, have some hot tips you think may be useful, have a different take on some subject we’ve written about, whatever! – write something up and either submit directly to the blog or toss us a link so we can reblog it! We know lots of people have different experiences with cons, so it’d be really great if we can share more perspectives!

Thank you!

It’s important to point out that the ones making AHCA even worse are the garden variety Republicans in congress- this stuff isn’t Trump’s doing (not that he gives a shit).

-Note: According to the article, one item is left off this list; outpatient/ambulatory services.

So if this passes I’d assume a lot of insurance companies would come out with new dirty cheap shit policies that cover almost nothing but sell them as the affordable option and people will buy them out of fear and they’ll be royally fucked when they actually need to, ya know, use the insurance.

honestly i love this blog not only bc its Good but bc aphobes from all over flock to it + make fools of themselves so its Super easy to get a comprehensive blocklist for even ppl outside of ur fandom circles its Nice

Tbh that’s one of my favorite things about running this blog. My main has become such a nice and discourse-free place because of the blocklist I’ve made on this blog,,, Bless,,,

But that’s why I made the aphobe block list! So you guys would have a nice list of people to stay away from. ♡♡

I just discovered that you are a Bionicle, Young Justice, Star Wars, and Kingsman fan. I love you even more now! Seriously though, I'm so happy that there are others still into Bionicle.

The fact that you know that means you went through my entire blog, and for that, THANK YOU, that is really flattering. And it is always great to meet fellow fans for the small fandoms (Bionicle and Young Justice, what what)! 

That said, I’m a fan for a looooooooooooooooooooooooooooot of media. heck, when I open the askbox again, I’m considering adding two new categories for people to request- Dragon Age and Mass Effect, including the newest Mass Effect. I have a looooong list of movies, shows, cartoons, comics and video games I’m a fan of.

What's a good site for cosplay? Like displaying photos, WIPs, organizing costumes etc. etc.?

These days most people seem to be on Instagram or Facebook, but imho neither are good for galleries or dedicated progress logs. Not even tumblr is set up well for documentation considering you need to either be very diligent with tags or compile link lists manually.

I wish there was a site that allowed you to display all related materials and posts by costume, but I think social media has taken over to the point that former hubs (AC Paradise, Cosplay.com, Cosplay Lab, etc) are more or less irrelevant. There’s Cosplay Amino but I don’t know much about it.
