first time i do a thing like this

One neat thing I noticed while rewatching is that some of the paladins’ introductions in episode 1 coincide with their elements! Like:

The Yellow Lion’s element is Earth, and the first thing Hunk ever does onscreen is complain about being in the air and work with metal. The fear of heights / motion sickness makes sense considering his affinity is with the ground, as does his talent for mechanics.

The first time we see Pidge, she’s working a communications unit. The Green Lion’s thing is Forests, and a big aspect of that is the idea of roots and connection with other living things (”we are all made up of the same cosmic dust”) and the first thing she does on screen is literally connect with others.

Red’s element is fire, and Keith’s introduction is literally him blowing something up and then punching some guys. Which. Speaks for itself honestly.

Weirdly, Shiro and Lance don’t seem to follow this trend. The first thing we see Shiro do is help Matt extract ice from Kerberos, and the first thing we see Lance do is fly the simulator, and neither introduction seems to be related to their given elements of air and water/ice respectively– in fact I’d say they seem swapped. I dunno if that means something, and maybe this observation is meaningless lmao, but it seems to hold up with the other three, which is interesting.

What if Lance ends up moving onto the red lion (not that it’s likely, this is just a thought) and the team’s tied up or something and he’s having a one on one fight with Lotor, who’s like:

“Your team doesn’t need you. You’re unimportant. Don’t lie to me. As soon as this mission is over, congratulations will be given to everyone but you. You, who try so, so much, and succeed, but with no recognition. They’re using you. That’s despicable. I would never do that to you. We could be great together.” Lotor holds out his hand to Lance, who’s kneeling and crying now. “Join me. I need you.”

And the team’s screaming at Lance things like, “Lance, don’t do this!” “We care about you!” And all that junk.

Lance is thinking he could be important. Lance could be with Lotor, this totally hot alien prince, and rule the galaxy and shit. He could be invincible.

But he wouldn’t be a hero. He would be hurting people. He’d be holding his team back more than he already was. He didn’t want to be selfish. Yes, what Lotor said about his insecurities are right. But his friends’ and the rest of the universe’s safety are more important than his feelings.

Hey, Madi! I love your blog! I was wondering if you could recommend me some post!divorce/post!break-up Sterek fanfics. I'm in the mood for some snark, jealousy, angst and happy endings, of course. Thank you in advance! Howl for Sterek!

Hi hi! 

Here’s some I’ve loved(*) and some I’ve been meaning to read:

-

*Lord knows it would be the first time by uraneia // 12k. E.

Stiles is home from Berkeley for the summer, but only because he promised the pack. He’d rather not see Derek, because whatever the thing was that they were doing, they’re not doing it anymore, and it sucks.

Unfortunately, he doesn’t have a choice. The betas tried a magical remedy for Derek’s melancholy, and now Stiles has a three-year-old who looks like Derek. Stiles doesn’t know how to deal with that, and he definitely doesn’t know how to tell the betas he and Derek were secret fuck buddies for a year and a half.

*waiting for you to say it first by paradis // 8k. T.

Four months.

Four months they’ve managed to avoid one another. Stiles quit going to pack meetings. He quit doing research unless Scott really, really begged him to. He avoided driving the road that led out to the turnoff to the Hale house, he avoided going to all the spots where Derek might possibly be. Four months, and now, here they are, standing in the Minit Mart, Stiles thinks, staring down at the grimy tiles. He can hear the catch of Derek’s breath, and he closes his eyes and breathes deep.

i have always been the storm by stilinskisparkles // 25k. E.

“You’re all headed out to Oklahoma in a week.”

Derek snaps his head up, stares at him in horror, “No, boss.”

Yes,” Finstock insists in a steely voice. “The NSSL have been on at us for a year about some decent exposure, and I think you’re just the team to do it.”

“I haven’t done weather since college,” Derek protests.

Boyd snorts again, presumably because he’s thinking back to the time when Derek and the weather last collided and he…. well, did the guy into the weather for a brief, wonderful, terribly foolish time. But, Boyd needs to shut up before Derek punches him on the nose.

In a Straight Line Down by standinginanicedress // 40k. T.

“So you want to go to Prom with me just so you can get a plastic crown and a fifty dollar gift card to Outback Steakhouse.”

Stiles sets his jaw. He wants to go to prom with Derek because he wants to go to prom with Derek. But, of course, he’s stubborn and prideful and can’t admit to Derek how it’s barely been twelve hours since they officially broke up and he’s already barely handling it as it is, so he just raises his chin in the air and says, “yes.”

Coming Home by Dexterous_Sinistrous // 4k. G.

They loved passionately. They fought passionately.

They married young. They divorced young.

Sometimes, things aren’t over when you think they are. Sometimes, you just need to come home.

anonymous asked:

Im sorry if you've already talked about this but how do you expect the team to react to Shiro's disappearance ? :o I think Keith's reaction will be interesting if you consider his fear of abandonment

I think that honestly a lot of speculation on the team’s reaction hinges on them like.. immediately understanding/accepting that Shiro’s disappearance is a permanent or at least a long-term thing and rather than doing everything to try and find Shiro they need to focus first on being able to hold their positions.

It ignores the idea of the team panicking- which, they would, and all in their separate ways- and the amount of unknowns in the situation. It hit them out of nowhere like a sledgehammer, and I feel like fanworks do a bit of a disservice by not picking up right at that point of impact or shortly afterwards.

(part 1 of 2) i imagine that the sex in yuuri's book would be just mentioned casually with no details, but he would sometimes talk about what started it or the aftermath of it. like when he talks about what happened in chapter eight it would be like: "That was the first time Viktor and I slept together. I woke up alone in his room the next morning and, being inexperienced and not knowing the etiquette of what to do after what I assumed was a one-night stand, took that as my cue to leave. -

(cont. from the ask about the sex in yuuri’s book, part 2 of 2) - Viktor, on the other hand, thought this was the perfect opportunity for us to talk things through and had left to get us tea and coffee. We bumped into each other at the door. I still left, though now significantly more awkward. Viktor has told me that my leaving that morning was especially painful for him.“ (i’m sorry i hope you aren’t offended by ppl actually writing out headcanons rather than just suggesting them)

————–

No, of course I don’t mind you writing your HC out! And he would definitely talk about the before and after parts as they are pretty critical to the story

anonymous asked:

how do you recover from heartbreak? how do we start moving on? i need a manifesto.

i think the most important thing is really wanting to move on. like really deep down wanting to move on. i think we trick ourselves into thinking we want to move on when really we just want the hurting to stop.

moving on begins with the firm decision to do so. the decision to put yourself first. to heal. and i think the key to letting go of something we once loved is to stop thinking about it as letting go and more as choosing not to hold onto to it anymore. every time you decide to not hold a memory close to you or pull it closer, you’re letting it fade. you’re letting go. you’re moving on. do it again and again and again ❤️

anonymous asked:

hey I'm gonna be DMing soon and I'm really nervous about it, but you seem to have a good handle on it. do you have any advice to impart on a less experienced (read: no experience) DM?

Well this is my first time DMing as well so take this with a grain of salt I suppose, especially given that my biggest mindset going into this campaign was that since I and most of the people playing weren’t Experts or anything, so I wanted to do something much more casual and pretty lax in terms of mechanics/rules. 

I can’t offer you much advice but let me try and like, make a list of what I think might help (or what certainly helped me, anyway):

1) Remember you an do ANYTHING YOU WANT. That’s the biggest thing. I went in making a homebrew and though at the beginning there were times I was like ‘aw man this sucks I should’ve at least started on top of a pre-made module’, I’ve gotten to the point where I’m very glad I have total creative power over the story and settings. 

You really gotta remember that you can do. Like. Anything. It doesn’t even have to be what’s in the books or online, like my dude you can make shit up. Reading the material in the players handbooks/online resources definitely helps a lot for giving you context, though. Do what you prefer! If sticking to something pre-made and finding what you like first makes you feel more comfortable, I can definitely recommend that, especially with it being your first time. Doing a homebrew is hard and you have to be ready to invest a pretty decent amount of time to setting things up, and there’s a lot to know, but it can be super rewarding. 

When creating your world and/or story, aim for an aesthetic YOU like, a story YOU’RE excited about, and your enthusiasm for it will be what makes it fun for the players. You gotta be invested in what you’re creating or it’ll fall flat. When I started listening to The Adventure Zone, I started worrying about my own campaign bc I realized I wanted to be able to go way beyond what I’d already set up. I didn’t want to scrap the progress everyone had already made in order to start off fresh in a new setting/story, so I simply had to be creative and think of a way to do what I wanted in a way which still fit within the pre-established ‘canon’. That’s just an example of how it might work out. I’m just saying, even if you start off but you don’t think you’re really feeling it, don’t forget you can do whatever you can think of! Don’t be afraid to take turns and experiment. Do whatever it takes to make it fun to work on, and fun for the players to experience. 

2) At least get a good grasp on the basics. Mainly abilities, what they’re good for, and how combat works. It can get kinda complicated bc there are a LOT of variables but tbh you can learn a lot as you go along, so don’t stress out about knowing exactly what every spell/effect/environmental hazard does. And if you don’t know something, it’s pretty much always a quick google search away! 

Also some things I still have trouble keeping in mind, but which are important: Challenge Ratings (how though enemies are/how many EXP they’re worth), calculating EXP for encounters, figuring out what sort of loot/special objects you want to give the players and when. 

3) Try your best to be prepared, but don’t worry too much if you don’t know everything. You learn a lot on the way, and a fair amount of that learning only happens after you start playing and having to guide your players. They’ll ask questions you don’t know or hadn’t thought about and it’ll be an opportunity for you to learn! 

4) If you’re doing your campaign online, try character voices/verbally playing instead of just RPing in text. All the campaigns I’ve played in have been done online with my friends via discord, and it’s been a lot more fun imo since we stopped typing in character stuff and just talking it out a la The Adventure Zone. This’ll depend on your party though, and general preferences. Some people have audio processing problems, so you may have to work with them so that they can join in more easily, or simply stick to text if that’s what’s easier for everyone! Take others’ perspectives into account. 

I also don’t bother with making complete maps bc it’s a lot of extra work and it can be hard learning how to make them on sites like Roll20. If you REALLY need a ref for something, do it, but don’t be afraid to keep it super simple haha. Sometimes a little square with some circles in it and some shaded areas is really all you need. 

5) And of course, here is the most important piece of advice: remember to have FUN. And remember that this is meant to be fun for your players, not just you. In fact, I’d say it’s the most important thing that they be the ones having a good time - if you’re DMing and your fun doesn’t come from your party doing sick flips and creating clever ways to get around your puzzles n shit, I’d say you’re not doing it right. Don’t hesitate to look over certain rolls or change up what you have planned in order to give the players a fun edge, let them explore, or even let THEM create some aspect of the story/world. 

In the end these games are about having a good time with your friends. Try your best to be a good guide through a cool adventure, but don’t forget that it’s a collaborative effort and your players (friends) will help you along the way. Be understanding of them and hopefully they’ll be the same way towards you.

And if anything isn’t working out, you have the power to change aspects of your game or change the way y’all play so that it can be fun! 

(gosh this is a lot, I hope at least some of it is useful to you!! good luck, you’ll have to tell me how your first session goes~)

((and tbh… if anyone else has more advice that isn’t as straightforward as mine, feel free to add on))

So what do you think Michonne's reaction will be when Rick finally gets her pregnant? Do you think she will hide it from him, so he doesn't get distracted (cause you know he won't get her pregnant during peaceful times!) Or do you think she'll do it in a sweet way in bed? Or will Rick figure it out first?! Ohhhh the possibilities. Also, are you leaning boy or girl for their first? Names?

Interesting thought that she would hide it from him to protect him. 🤔But actually, I think that’s more a Lori kind of thing. No shade, because I do think it would be with good intentions, but she seems overprotective in that way. I feel like Michonne knows and trusts Rick’s strength and she’d share that with him as soon as she could. It would be something she’d rather them experience together. I also think it’d be a little bittersweet for her – Michonne is practical, so if it happens anytime soon, she would know that it’s not great timing. And it would make her think of Andre. But the idea of expanding their family would mostly delight her. And after the initial shock, she’d be excited to tell him. But I also love the idea that Rick would figure it out first, just based on the changes in her body. And after she goes through a bunch of rigmarole to tell him, he just says, “I know.” ☺

So since Maggie is presumably having a boy, I’d like for them to have a girl. It’d be nice for Judith to have a sister. And I’m basically just pulling ideas from my own stories at this point, but for a name, I’d love if their baby was given Michonne’s last name. (Depending on what it is, of course.) But I think it would be a nice way to reveal her full name as well as include both Rick and Michonne in their child’s name. For one story, I made Michonne’s last name Bellamy, so that’s what they called their daughter. (Bell for short.) But plenty of last names could work. I always have trouble thinking of meaningful names, but I think that’s a good way to go.

Hello! I just wanted your opinion on something-is it just me, or do the 8 chapters not sound like Sarah very much? They don't seem to be as fluent as her other stuff, for some reason!

My response gets spoilery; for those of you who haven’t read the first 8 chapters, move along, nothing to see here.

What would Bendy's reaction be to interacting with puppies/kittens/cute things for the first time. I have this image in my head of him meeting a corgi puppy and just being in utter awe. Like wondering how the hell is this little potato is able to move so fast???? To maybe a kitten climbing him and he freezes up because "what is it doing???" "What does it want from me??"



@squigglydigglydoo I know what your distracting mental image of the day is.

Random Thought Time

I just imagined that while Peter and Edmund are training they like to spice things up a little bit by making Susan and Lucy sit on their backs while they do push ups.

Oreius volunteered to be the one the Kings carried (to teach both of them a lesson in humility and common sense and seriousness) and it looked like Peter and Edmund would either faint or become nauseous. 

i just found out some people dont preheat their ovens when they are baking things and im mad its meant to be a certain TEMPERATURE because it has to be baked at that SPECIFIC TEMPERATURE for a SPECIFIC AMOUNT OF TIME in order to make the most HIGH QUALITY food possible. youre literally screwing yourself over and probably over/undercooking your food and i am DISGUSTED. follow the RECIPES the first thing you do is preheat the oven for a REASON so you dont even notice the wait for it to heat because you will be busy preparing ANYWAY like use common SENSE. i would drop a friend for this.

anonymous asked:

hey... the thing is I like to be alone and read and do random research so that's how I want to spend my days BUT I end up being all day in bed isolating myself which isn't good especially bc I have depression. I'm having trouble managing that, do you have any tips?

I hear you. Finding that balance of getting enough alone time without slipping into a Ti-Si loop is difficult.

My first suggestion is to get a desk and chair in your room if you don’t have one. That way, your down time on the computer won’t seem like really down time, the way it does if you’re sacked out on your bed.

Also, have water with you at all times. Or tea. Or coffee. Something along those lines. I’ve noticed that if I have something to drink in my downtime, then I have to get up and use the restroom or refill my drink. It keeps me hydrated and gives me something to do. Just don’t do that with pop or something really unhealthy and sugary, or that defeats the purpose. I actually recently saw a post to this effect, and it made my heart rejoice because I’ve been doing it for so long, and it really helps.

Do jumping jacks or something every once in a while, too. This might sound ridiculous, but it gives your brain a rest, and that’s good.

Lastly, if necessary, limit your alone time. If you realize that you are being tooo introverted, give your grandmother a phone call, run to the store, or see if you can hang out with a friend. The thing to remember is not to get so self-absorbed that you forget there’s a world of people out there.

I hope this helps, and thanks for stopping by.

anonymous asked:

they released the blu ray edition of ep 10 and yuuri???? is seen winking??? not just once but TWICE and it's so precious?? they say that couples pick up on each other's mannerisms..... do u think yuuri picked this up from viktor mayhaps

I saw this earlier while depressed and BOOM i was nt…..stunning 

Things Yuuri got from Victor: The lip tap thing when thinking. Victor kisses Yuuri when he does it for the first time. (2 weeks after they start officially dating.) 

The Wink™ which again makes Victor weep. It becomes a little joke between them, and whenever someone makes a subtle inside joke they throw in a wink. 

Things Victor got from Yuuri: 

The way he stands on the ice with his hip slightly cocked/hunches over the barrier during a break. (He also bends a little lower now since he’s used to getting on Yuuri’s level while talking.) Yuuri doesn’t notice until the Russian skaters point out how they stand the same/will even switch to the same hip while talking. 

they honestly just mirror each other a lot!! When talking, snuggling, sitting together, or even standing they’re just mime each other’s movements/gestures. 

anonymous asked:

Sabrina announced another tour this summer. Do you think that may be a negative for another season of GMW?

I didn’t think much of it, other than if there is a GMW revival, then production wouldn’t start in the summer, which I mean at this point makes sense. There’s been no announcement either way yet and it’s almost May. Even if hypothetically there was an announcement about a revival tomorrow, between scheduling, contracts, new set building, etc etc, I doubt production would even start till fall, so why wouldn’t Sabrina schedule things in the summer at this point? If there is no revival (like I’ve said I’m still 50/50), then Sabrina is free to do whatever anyway.

I did think it was interesting her new tour is a bit shorter than her first one (I think this one is a whole month less). It seems like she’s only scheduling (major) stuff no more than four months at a time (ie: she’s announcing this tour end of April and last tour date is end of August. she announced Evolution tour beginning of last September and last tour date was end of December). Whether it’s because she doesn’t want to tour longer or because she has another scheduling commitment for the fall (whether it be potential gmw or anything else), who knows. But it did seem pretty purposeful the tour doesn’t spill into September.

starrkwhitecoyotes  asked:

I know I know, you're probably wondering why me, a Coyote Starrk centric blog didn't ask anything like this sooner but .... Who is your fave and why? :)

Boy, oh, boy~ This question is so easy, my soul has ascended to the Soul Society. I am currently dead. Okay, my favorite EVER–and I do mean ever, like of all time, out of anything I’ve ever read, watched, created, etc.–is Shunsui fucking Kyoraku. Let me tell you about this shit.

First of all, let it be known that I have a thing for older guys. There’s just something about them that is so alluring, and I just really love them. They’re mature, and confident without being arrogant, and they have this weathered look to them that really sets my heart racing. Plus, the kind of intellectual, philosophical conversations you could potentially have with them really tickles my peach. To be quite honest, Shunsui is the one who really set that kink in motion for me.

Second, I absolutely adore hairy men. Not overtly hairy, like there’s a line, but some chest hair, hairy arms, beards and other facial hair? Nngghh. It’s just so great to me. Plus, I really love the idea of running my hands through his hair? I feel like it would be so soft and fluffy. So combine all the things that I find aesthetically pleasing (above), and mix it with his intellect, kind heart, playfulness, and sense of duty and loyalty to his friends and comrades, and my heart has melted into a puddle of goo. Here, my panties on a silver platter. You can have them, they’re yours, Shu-kun.

I also feel like he’d be a great lover. Because while he could pull off some more risque stuff, mostly I love the idea that he’s more into the caring, passionate lovemaking. Like, there would be nothing on his mind except you and your needs whenever you were together, and that applies to any situation… Ugh, this is getting out of hand, but yeah. Shunsui is my one true love.

*Side note: That’s probably why Starrk is my favorite Espada, because he and Shunsui are so strikingly similar. xD

**Edit: He’d be the best nap buddy (aside from maybe Starrk), and no one can convince me otherwise.
