finding the fountain of youth

Craiglist (or whatever similar site) Masterpost

I finally found this really informative post, been searching this for weeks. This is from an awesome longtime SB with really great advice posts @itsnecolbitch, whom already deactivated her account few months ago. Enjoy!!

Are you ready to give craigslist a try? Here are some ads that I have used in the past that worked for me. Pick any of them to choose from.

1. Undeniable Moments- (Insert City Here)

Would you like for me to spice up your night? Lets go out to dinner and lets have a great time. I have went on a few dates but I felt not only something was missing but also my time being wasted. Have you ever felt that way before? Would you like to meet a woman who is exciting and that you hit it off with mutually?

I would like to be spoiled.

2. It’s Never Too Late For Happy Hour- (Insert City Here)

You’re in the middle of a hectic project and you would like to go out for an evening or two. You are in fear of going alone. You don’t have to be afraid anymore as this is when I come to the picture. Your personal social butterfly is here to rescue you. Do you accept this challenge?

3. 777, Jackpot- (Insert City Here)

I am an attractive young lady. My goal is to meet a gentleman and I just hope that chivalry still exists. He must be well traveled as i love to talk about different destinations. I am interested in art, golf, and trying the best restaurants that (insert city) has to offer.

What you’ll learn about me is that I am an elegant individual with a sense of style.

Please be at least 35-55, as I prefer my men older.

4. Lonely Lunches & Dull Dinners- (Insert City Here)

I enjoy to be your oasis, you can forget the issues of everyday life in. I will be happy to experience times of adventure with you, and discover new worlds with you. When we are together, I’ll make you the center of your universe. I will be devoted to satisfying your desires. Just let the rhythm flow through your mind, body and spirit.

I’m not opposed to refreshing yet exciting experiences that make me grow as a person and evolve my professional possibilities. My primary goal is to find a gentleman who is sincere, honest and charitable.

5. Fountain Of Youth- (Insert City Here)

My ideal gentleman is someone who is financially secure as well as intelligent, older and knows how to keep a woman happy. If you are interested in leading more about this exciting opportunity let’s go out for drinks.

6. Discrete Daddy Wanted- (Insert City Here)

A little bit about myself, I am nice, have a bubbly personality, not to mention, I am a spicy, sassy, sweet, sexy petite mixed creature. I would like to be taken care of. Does it sound like you? If so, please email me. Gracias!

7. Establish An Agreement- (Insert City Here)

I enjoy the company of ambitious, successful, gentlemen. I thrive when expectations are clear and well defined in the beginning letting the rest take care of itself as it all unfolds.

I am seeking a gentleman who desires the benefits of companionship, without the entanglements of a traditional relationship. I would like to be spoiled and pampered.

8. The Ambiance- (Insert City Here)

People tell me I have an exotic look. Natural beauty by day, and dressed to the nines at night. I love the finest things life has to offer and will not settle for less. I am ready for fun and ultimately looking for one person to share my life with. I am attracted to powerful men. Honesty and loyalty are very important to me. I love black tie events, the opera, movies, both domestic and international travel, exotic/luxury cars, golfing, skiing and shopping. I believe in chivalry, romance, and sensuality.

I know what I want and when I find it, I will be off the market.

I spend my free time searching for the man of my dreams. He is worldly, educated, classy, fun, and sexy. A man that enjoys taking care of himself and the woman he is crazy about. A man that loves to travel, both planned and spontaneous.

9. Intelligence Is The Ultimate Aphrodisiac- (Insert City Here)

Don’t open the bottle of wine just yet. Just wait. Aren’t you missing something? No, I’m not talking about the appetizers or the main dish. You are missing, me.

My world is rich and diverse. My standards are high. I reserve the right to say no to invitations when appropriate.

I am most definitely not opposed to seeking an arrangement with a gentleman who is diplomatic, refined, exceptional and a philanthropic. You be will be impressed with my confidence along with my presence. I can’t wait to meet you.

10. Dinner With A Beautiful Woman- (Insert City Here)

I am a woman who enjoys having a man truly be a man and a provider. I like spending my time with a mature individual who knows how to treat a woman, and he knows how to make the most of each moment we spend together.

I am seeking a successful man who is interested in exploring a relationship that is mutually beneficial. I want to meet an individual who is open to new things and enjoying quality time.

After you have posted your ad, it’s time to play the waiting game.

You’ve got a response! What’s next? If it sounds intriguing, you can either do two things:

1. Send a personalized email about yourself and what you are looking for OR you can use my example spam message but of course you would have to reword it and it goes like this:

“Thank you so much for responding to my ad. I would love to get to know you better and hopefully you’ll give me the opportunity to do so. I hope you don’t mind my age as I am _____ years old, however I do consider myself as a young face with an old soul, therefore, I am comfortable in any setting. If you don’t mind me asking what exactly is your occupation because I do consider myself as an entrepreneur. I can’t wait to hear back from you.”

After you send that and he replies again, that means you are in there for scheduling a date. Remember to agree to meet at a public place.

Bonus tips: You are allowed to post at least 5 ads a day, so please post, never feel discouraged when they flag it.

1. Be very firm when they ask you what exactly you are looking for. When they ask, do not be shy. Tell him exactly this: At this time, I am looking for a gentleman who isn’t opposed to exploring a relationship that is rather mutually beneficial to as I have done something like this before and the experience was great to where I would like to try again. If he doesn’t know what that means, do not delete his email. Explain to him that in other words you are seeking a sugar daddy/sugar baby arrangement.

Good luck ladies!

Construction of underwater air trap - Wakulla Springs, 1941
“Newt Perry (on the right) worked as a performer and promoter for Silver Springs and managed Wakulla Springs before opening Weeki Wachee Springs, famed for its underwater mermaid shows, which Perry designed. He was also instrumental for the filming of MGM’s "Tarzan Finds a Son!” (1939), originally titled “Tarzan in Exile”, at Silver Springs and “Tarzan’s Secret Treasure” (1941) at Wakulla Springs through his friendship with filmmaker Grantland Rice and actor-swimmer Johnny Weismuller (who played Tarzan). He also influenced Universal Studio’s decision to film the “Creature from the Black Lagoon” and its two sequels in Florida (including Wakulla and Silver Springs) as well as the hiring of local swimmer Ricou Browning to portray the Creature. Perry spent much of his later life working as a swimming instructor in Ocala, Florida.“ State Archives of Florida​


(Fullview in case Tumblr eats the quality like usual.)

So yeah I’ve been playing with a fic idea wherein Silver has a mishap with the Fountain of Youth, and suddenly Flint and Vane find themselves unexpected parents to a rambunctious 3 year old who w a i l s if they leave his sight.

I may try and write out some snippets, although lord knows I don’t need to start writing any more fics .__.

If I do more it’ll be under my Black Sails tag (’Captain Dong’… don’t ask) or the tag for this specific idea will be ‘Gardiens DArgent’.

Dannymay Day 1: Hope

I’m doing 31 days of my Master of Space AU! Let’s begin with some slight angst, shall we?

Summary: Danny keeps searching for a way to either cure his immortality or to find a way to make Vlad immortal. 

Background: Master of Space AU, or Danny becomes the Master of Space, regulator of the multiverse. “Ever heard of space time continum? I’m space, he’s time, and together we continue the multiverse”. 

Timeline: Pre-Master of Space, Danny/Astral’s original universe, 30 years after the Nasty Burger explosion
Danny’s age: 44 (Physically 14)

Ears ringing, heartbeat pounding slowly in his ear drums, Danny flipped another page in the admittedly dense book. He pressed his lips together, as the words blurred on the pages, and try as he might, he couldn’t get them to focus again.

He sighed, closed the book for a moment, and stared at the wall in front of him.

It was moments like these that made his efforts feel fruitless. Book after book, countless hours of research both in and out of the ghost zone. There was never a clear cure for immortality anywhere, and while, there were many tales of explorers wandering for the fountain of youth, they were just that, stories. Even in the ghost zone, the fountain of youth was simply a myth created by those too afraid to die.

Though in the GZ, ghosts tended to hiss at its very mention. Apparently, its equivalent was something akin to acid and while Danny didn’t know how it affected humans, he didn’t particularly want to find out either.

The fountain of youth was just one of the many dead ends he faced.

Sighing to himself, felt his eyes begin to droop drastically. He blinked heavily, trying and failing to get the sleep out of them, even as his body snuggled deeper into the chair.

Danny suddenly made himself sit up, despite his protesting body. With a few quick movements, he took a long gulp of his long cold coffee, whipped his mouth on his arm, and cracked open the long winded book once more.

As he readjusted himself to get in a less comfortable position, he stared determinedly at the pages before him.

Vlad told him to stop looking a long time ago. He, despite being a stubborn bastard, didn’t fight the inevitability of his own death.

Danny couldn’t accept that. No matter how many times Vlad sighed and shook his head, no matter how many pages told him that keeping humans, hybrids, or any other mortal creature alive beyond their time was impossible, Danny could never accept that there wasn’t a way.

There had to be. Somewhere in these pages, there was an answer, and Danny would eventually find it, even if it would take years searching in every waking and non-waking hour.

And so he continued searching.

Harry’s lying he only spent a month making the album the rest of his hiatus he was on a quest to find the fountain of youth in which he obviously succeeded because he now has the soft skin of a baby and the glow of an expectant mother. 

The year is 2294.

Jim Kirk just celebrated his 61th birthday. (Well, that’s how Bones put it, because Jim Kirk has to be blackmailed to celebrate the 22nd of March.)

The worst thing about his birthday this year was the absence of his husband, who just started negotiating with the Romulans. Because the whole peace treaty affair with the Klingons went so smoothly and without life threatening incidents, almost too easy, really…

So, of course, Spock just HAD to go on start bargaining with the most cunning sneaky bastards in the entire quadrant!

It is on this horrible rainy day, the kind that crawls into Jim’s cracking bones, when Starfleet calls him. And before he can even start yelling at the com, because it’s not even 5 am yet, his brain registers the words: “Ambassador Spock” and “missing”. Everything he was just about to shout at the officer of ‘fleet Operations seems to be stuck in his throat.

As it turns out bargaining for peace with the Romulans is not exactly a breeze. It’s not that Jim hadn’t told his better half exactly this, but Vulcans…can’t live with them, can’t live without them.

The Romulans, it seems, were not completely opposed to a reunion with their more peaceful kinship, but parts of the old Empire still hungered after the good old times with the Federation cowering at the border.

The hobgoblin did WHAT?” is the first thing McCoy grunts through the com followed by “let me get this straight: Spock got himself captured by Romulan rebels and you want to go after him, because thanks to the Vulcan mumbo jumbo in your head you can roughly get the direction where the green-blooded fool’s at?! You are 61 years old, damn it, and you don’t even have a ship!”


As it turns out…they have a ship.

Uhura squeezes into the tiny nook where the ship’s com is located. She’s gorgeous, regal like a queen, her hair, turned white with age, gives her an even more ethereal shine. She shouts into her ear piece whenever she communicates with Scotty in the belly of his tiny cruiser, because he’s a little deaf on both ears, but his hands are still steady and his mind never stopped working on miracles despite the fact that he takes a little longer for everything now.

Sulu’s way to pilot around a meteor belt has never faltered once, even if he doesn’t hold the record of the academy anymore. He sits right in the front, salt-and-pepper hair thinning a bit. His favourite plant at his feet (“Her name is Gertrud and she will come with us!”).

Chekov, the cheeky little shit, sits right next to Sulu, just like he used to and makes fun of the lot of them. Jim is never quite certain the whiz kid didn’t find the fountain of youth somewhere on one of his many assignments.

Jim takes his place in the center seat. It’s tiny compared to what he’s used to, but to hell with it! They need to get Spock back and he’ll deal with anything he can get!

Bones sits on a borrowed chair right next to his old captain and grunts and grumbles that they are too old for this and how they should at least have taken someone else with them, but when Jim interjects that he can go, if he so desperately wants to, he looks at him, as if he’s lost his mind.

“I’m old Jim, not dead! Well at least not yet! What are we waiting for anyway? Let’s get going before the hobgoblin starts getting too comfortable wherever he is…”


Harve Bennett on Star Trek V: The Final Frontier:

“The problem was to take a talented and wonderful man, Bill Shatner, and try and dissuade him from doing the story he wanted to do. I was told Bill was going to direct, and that he had stor approval, which I said was a terrible situation, especially once I heard the story that he wanted to do. I come from an old school in Television which says if the logline in TV Guide does not interest you, then it’s a pretty good indication the premise of the story is not interesting. 

“The log line of Star Trek V is ‘Tonight on Star Trek, the crew goes to find God.’ If you saw that in an episode of anything you’d say that’s a hoot, isn’t it? No one is going to find God because that’s like finding the fountain of youth — which was, incidentally, Shatner’s back-up story.”

Below the cut you’ll find about 82 gif icons (100x100) of the ethereal, fountain of youth goddess Emily Kinney. None of these were made by me–other than the second one in the post–but I cropped and resized all of them; so all credit goes to the original creators.

fangirl meme: tv shows [3/15]

“Do you wanna come with me? ‘Cause if you do, then I should warn you — you’re gonna see all sorts of things. Ghosts from the past. Aliens from the future. The day the Earth died in a ball of flame. It won’t be quiet, it won’t be safe, and it won’t be calm. But I’ll tell you what it will be: the trip of a lifetime!”

Second chance in life - Part 1

Part 2:

(Again, english is not my mother language)

You loved legends and ancient stories, but you also liked gold and jewels, that’s why you became a treasure hunter. You started as a thief, but it started to get boring, the guards in the places you broke in were jokes, you get more adrenalin from sleep than by getting “chased” by them. You wanted to live a more adventurous life, and you got it when you met Nathan Drake through your best friend Chloe Frazer. Traveling to Turkey, Borneo, Nepal, and finding Shambala while being chased by merceneries, now that’s what you called a thrilling and exciting life. It’s lucky that your friends are also treasure hunters, they can’t call you crazy.
