first eliminated

“In September 2010, Bell Let’s Talk began a new conversation about Canada’s mental health. At that time, most people were not talking about mental illness. But the numbers spoke volumes about the urgent need for action. Millions of Canadians, including leading personalities engaged in an open discussion about mental illness, offering new ideas and hope for those who struggle, with numbers growing every year.”

Today, January 25, 2017, is Bell Let’s Talk day. For every text, call, tweet and Instagram post, Facebook video view and use of Snapchat geofilter, Bell will contribute 5 ¢ more to mental health initiatives.

Make sure you iMessage is turned off while sending text messages otherwise it will not be counted as a stand MSM text message.

Two out of three people suffer in silence, fearing judgement and rejection. Starting a conversation is the first step towards eliminating stigma.

The Next Leader Of Cybertron Is A Total Beast
Earlier this month a Transformer near and dear to my heart faced off against Ultra Magnus, Star Saber and Deathsaurus in a fan vote for who would be the next ‘bot to wield the Matrix of Leadership. Move over, Optimus Prime. It’s Optimus Primal’s time.

Earlier this month a Transformer near and dear to my heart faced off against Ultra Magnus, Star Saber and Deathsaurus in a fan vote for who would be the next ‘bot to wield the Matrix of Leadership.  Move over, Optimus Prime.  It’s Optimus Primal’s time.

It started with Transformers fans choosing the leader of three factions, Chaos, Order and Honor.  From there the pack was narrowed down to three candidates and one wildcard.

As a huge fan of the Beast Wars era of Transformers, in which the smaller descendents of the Autobots and Decepticons, the Maximals and Predacons. are thrown back in time to ancient Earth and forced to take on animal forms to survive, I was puling for Optimus Primal, Optimus Prime’s ape namesake.  Well, he won.  Good monkey.

Hasbro announced the winner today on stage at its Toy Fair 2017 event in New York City.  First they eliminated Japanese hero Star Saber, then Ultra Magnus.  They asked the audience who they thought won of the remaining two, and someone very near to my mouth shouted, “Primal!”

Okay, it was me.

This version of Optimus Primal is a warlord who dreams of a Cybertron ruled by beasts.  As long as they aren’t Beast Machines, we should be okay.

Optimus Primal will assume the Matrix of Leadership in 2018, when the Power of the Primes story and toy line kick into gear.  Here’s hoping they call him Optimus Primal Prime.

The 2ps on Chopped

2p America, Eliminated the first round because there was meat in the basket. He set fire to the set later that night.

2p China, Has no plan, his dish is awful and he is illuminated very quickly.

2p England, Uses the ingredients in the basket in super creative ways, fights Italy tooth and nail for first place. Looses to Italy so he jacks Italy’s car later that night.

2p France, Has no idea what he’s doing. Literally just takes the ingredients out of the basket and puts them on a plate like, “Here I guess.”

2p Russia, Tries his best. Still fails.

2p Italy, Way too competitive. He definitely wins and uses the money he won to get fancy drunk only to wake up and find his car totaled.

2p Germany, Has no plan, his dish actually turns out ok. He spends a sold 3 minuets playing with the eggplant that he found in the basket.

2p Japan, the audience favorite that gets illuminated way too quickly. 100% helped America set fire to the set that night.

2p Romano, Eliminated like the 3rd round because his food was ok, but he spent way too much time on plaiting so only 1 judge got any food.

2p Prussia, The poor youngster in way over his head.

I honestly want to understand all sides to the opinions on Fidel Castro. As a lower-middle class Brazilian, who has studied both in right wing and left wing schools, I have learned that Fidel was a dictator, that he killed several people and that Cuba lives in poverty. But I also have learned that he was responsible for a great advance in medicine, education and sports. In Brazil, we all see Cuba as the biggest country in those areas, for things like: being the first country to eliminate HIV transmission between mothers and their babies during labor, having a 100% rate of literacy in the country and always doing extremely well in sports competitions.

The Cubans in Miami that we saw on the news celebrating Fidel’s death were also chanting and celebrating Trump, so to me it’s obvious that they are biased towards hate speech and inequalities, which is something that should be fought, not encouraged.

I know that no politician is an angel. Not even Obama, who is fiercely celebrated here on tumblr. Obama was in power when they discovered that the USA was spying on Brazil; he was in power during the ravage in the Middle East brought by the army. So it’s also difficult to believe that Fidel was the hero some people see him as, because if the leader of a “free” country is responsible for so many tragedies, the leader of a dictatorship will be responsible for things far worse.

Wow, I’m looking at the ARC-V timeline of events and holy crap, it follows a Butterfly Effect almost since there are a lot of simple things that could have happened if someone, mainly Leo Akaba, decided to take a different route of action, in this case, going after the Yuu Boys first to eliminate them instead of capturing the Bracelet Girls first to bring back Ray.

Like think about it. Leo and Yusho worked together to create Solid Vision. What if Yuya came to visit one day to see his dad and you just see this horrified expression on Leo’s face. Sometime later, after Leo has already disappeared to Academia, as Yuya is walking home from school, out of nowhere the Obelisk Force shows up and kidnaps the kid and takes him back to Academia where the Professor orders them to kill Yuya. Yuya is barely able to escape and he runs into Yuri who is also fighting for his life at the moment against the Obelisk Force but he is on his last legs. Just as he is able to lose, Yuya joins the duel and is able to help Yuri escape, much to Yuri’s surprise of course.

And then there’s Reiji, who was teleported to Academia when he was trying find his father. He ran into Selena and was then forced by his father back into Standard. Geez, and Leo wonders why Reiji wouldn’t side with him -_- Now think about what would have happened if Leo actually decided to take Reiji aside, actually TALK with him about what the hell he was doing, saying he was trying to bring back his sister, and kill the demon that took her away from them and almost destroyed the world with Leo trying to restore it back to normal, Reiji probably would have sided with his father. Keep in mind, we know for a fact that Reiji is known to take risks, having even shown that he is willing to sacrifice many for the greater good. Also, he wouldn’t have known Yuya then if he actually stayed at Academia, giving him no way to know the true person that Yuya is and actually taking his father’s word that he is a demon spawn. 

And if the two events that I stated above happened in the same timeline, Reiji more then likely would have been the one to capture Rin, Ruri, and go after Yuzu next instead of Yuri or in this case, being the one to track down the Yuu Boys to destroy them. As for Yuya and Yuri…well let’s just say that things wouldn’t turn out well for them and same can be said for Yuto and Yugo as well if Leo decided to hunt them down using Reiji.

I’m actually planning on writing something huge for this concept. Question is, should I start now or wait until ARC-V is over once I have all the facts. I mean, I would love to start writing this now but I wanted to know what you guys thought about this first of all. Oh and if anyone is wondering, I’m calling it, “If Leo was actually smart” AU at the moment. 

Heat of This Moment [Post-Survivor Series 2016 Ambrolleigns One Shot]

Summary: Dean Ambrose was scripted to be eliminated first. He was scripted to come out and “reunite” with his Shield brothers to feed the fans. He was not scripted to actually love those two “brothers” of his, but good thing about that is he doesn’t want to admit he does. Won’t even say it. This is a (very long) one shot following the three boys and what went down after they all left the ring. Established Rolleigns. Past Ambreigns. Lots of angst and misunderstandings but its a happy Ambrolleigns ending!! Please comment your thoughts and reblog if you liked it. @the-awkward-fangirl-hard-life @ilzehs @cookiethewriter @arrowtothecrown @nessaliv @adriennegabriella @justtheaverageblog1 Just tagging some people I think were interested before, if you’d like to be tagged in the future lemme know too!


Roman really would’ve liked for this one to be different. He knew he was stupid to get his hopes up.

Canada. America. Europe.

What did it matter if everything he did got the same reaction anyway? Still. The crowd whooped and cheered for the triple-power bomb. Every. Time.

And that moment he’d felt it— yeah he let himself soak in every drop of that crowd’s love and excitement — as short lived as it was.

He didn’t want to be bitter. He didn’t wanna feel sad. Defeated. But he was damn human, not the Superman he pretended to be. And the fact Dean refused to make eye contact with him, even during their spot, only made things worse.

“Roman sucks! Roman sucks!”

The words were still ringing in his head as he rolled over, wincing while he saw Seth get hit with the RKO and get pinned in his peripheral vision. Roman rubbed the exhaustion from his eyes and cursed creative for booking him to be the last member of RAW left.

Oh yeah.

“Let’s go SMACKDOWN! Let’s go SMACKDOWN!”

Seth was the only thing tethering him to the fan’s good side. Now he was really alone.

Heaving himself up by the ropes, Roman stared blandly across the way at Randy and Bray. Luke Harper too, the fucker.

Roman realized he’d been getting far too many flashes of nostalgia tonight for his health. The Wyatt family and one grain of dirt from Evolution right before his eyes and a terrible ache in his spine all the while.

The match passed in a blur, and of course he wasn’t going to be the soul survivor here, and the echoing sound of the ref hitting the mat beside his head became music to his ears.

At least now the crowd was cheering.

His coal dark eyes stared up at the blaring white lights, and he let himself be pushed out of the ring by Luke Harper’s sweaty head—

‘Didn’t know he was actually part goat, or lamb or whatever the hell their mask was modeled after’ — Roman snarkily thought to himself, but felt the rest of his body roll over the apron and onto the floor.

He just wanted to go.

Seth was already sitting backstage, running his tingling fingertips through his wild curls of hair. He was watching the end of the match play out, and he couldn’t help but notice Roman looking particularly… down— to anyone else he might’ve looked like he always did in the ring — but they’d had enough history together for him to catch the little things in the big dog’s expressions.

He pitied him, he really did. Seth radiated self confidence, wasn’t far off his in-ring persona in real life, and genuinely felt unaffected when he used to get boos, but he knew how Roman was too. Roman was a good fucking guy, and was a good fucking wrestler too, contrary to popular belief.

He deserved better than what he got.

But apart from that… he’d find Roman later, he had to talk to the other part of their very jagged jig-saw puzzle.

Seth found Dean coming out from the locker rooms, roughly rubbing a towel over his unruly mop of hair. Even though the ginger-blond was already in sight, Seth still found his feet speeding up slightly, as if he were afraid Dean would be gone in an instant. Maybe it was because he was half-expecting the lunatic to have already left.

“Dean,”

“Seth.”

The raspy voice answered back, even though the owner of it didn’t turn around.

“I’m surprised you didn’t leave yet.”

“You know me so well.” The eye roll was palpable in his voice.

“Listen, I know why you asked to be drafted to SmackDown, but Steph told me that she was thinking about getting you to RAW 'cause—”

“No, Seth. You knew why I asked, then you wouldn’t be trying to convince me to come back. So don’t.”

“Fine.” Seth was right beside Dean now, pulling the damp towel from where it was absently lying over the taller one’s head.

“Even if you don’t come to Raw, would you at least try picking up his damn calls? He’s fucking drowning himself, Dean, and I’m not a lifeguard—!”

“—You get a fucking perm or something?”

Seth stopped, brows furrowing.

“What?”

“Your hair. It’s might as well be tickling the roof of this damn building with all that volume. You need to think about gel or something because water ain’t workin’.”

Seth could practically feel his skin heating up by the second, and threw the towel he’d unknowingly been clenching onto into the wall.

“I see you haven’t changed.” Calm voice contrasting the tense fists tucked into his crossed arms, Seth stepped into Dean’s space- in front of him now.

“And I see you’ve changed plenty. Like the commentators said, You and Ro clearly 'kissed, hugged, and made up’ right? You two sharing rooms again too?”

Seth smirked over clenched teeth.

“I see you’re jealous.”

“I don’t get jealous.”

“Sure, like my hair doesn’t frizz up during matches,” It was Seth’s turn to roll his eyes.

I am feeling good today! First, I eliminated the things that made me feel stress. That included leaving my old job for another one that I felt more comfortable and happy in. I feel like I can breathe again. Sure things are still pretty shitty but the fog is starting to clear and I am starting to feel like I am living again. I start the day treatment program soon where I will be addressing my mental illness. It’s not like I haven’t been in therapy before but I always put those feelings on the back burner and now I am really facing them head on. I am always trying to be someone other than me; the girl who smiles all the time, or the introverted girl who keeps to herself, or the loud giggly girl who is perfect at everything. I really don’t know who I am, for a good 6 years I’ve been who people wanted me to be and the years before that I spent so much time hating myself that I never gave myself a chance to be genuine. Now I am 20 years old and it’s time that I find out who Ayanna really is without the self hate, the trying to be someone else, the perfection, the mental illness.
