first vacay in a long time

guess who’s back from vacay

I brought with me the long awaited (by me ) first ship for my Kingdomstuck AU. so err~ hehe I guess its story time…

Rose and the others (john,jade and dave) are trying to find their way off their respective worlds, hoping to meet up with eachother later on. unfortunately they are being targeted by organization 13 (a group of trolls and their leader) simply because all four of them posses keyblades and are capable of defeating heartless. 

anyway~ rose seems to know more than she lets on about the darkness, and refuses to tell the others, or accept that they’re a bad group, but this is only because of her acquaintance with kanaya. rose finds that she is rather fond of her and choses to give up her lights heart so that she and kanaya can be together without being separated by light and dark. kanaya refuses to accept what rose is about to do, knowing that if rose gives up her heart she will become a heartless and no longer remember her.

(=*w*=)i’m never drawing the moon nor in heart form agani. nope nope)

Beach time! Yay... kind of

So tomorrow we head out to the beach for our first family vacay. Packing is totally different now, when I have to plan for all a baby might need. Besides my husband and daughter, my mother-in-law and brother-in-law and his girlfriend are coming. I actually get a long with them well, so I’m excited. Except I know inevitably I will feel uncomfortable. My brother-in-law and his girlfriend are very thin and health conscious. My BIL almost to an obnoxious point because he buys into a lot of gimmicky, popular for now, health crap and thinks he knows it all better than me. Which is something, as a bigger person, I have always noticed. People treat my like I know nothing about health, simply because I am bigger. I actually know a lot about it, I just happen to also be a food addict and find it very hard to apply to myself.
Anywho, I am getting nervous about being in a tank top or my swimsuit in front of them. In the past year I’ve gained so much, I know it’ll run through their head, “she’s put on so much weight, she’s huge!”. It would mine too if I’m being honest.
But I am determined to focus on this as being a happy experience for my daughter. So I am putting on that swimsuit and getting out there with her. She doesn’t judge me, she just wants me to be around and love her; that I can do forever 💗

Huge thanks and big hugs to everyone following and still loving Sterek!! Sorry this is kind of lengthy, I was on vacay and caught up on some fic reading. 

affettuoso by bleepobleep | 13,066

Derek mentally kicks himself for just standing there like a lovestruck fool, but it’s been exactly forty-six days since he saw Stiles, and he still remembers the taste of his skin, how Stiles feels underneath him.

All Stirred Up by jsea, marguerite_26 | 49,430

Derek’s first duty as a new deputy is the early morning coffee run to The Leaky Carafe, and it’s not long before he discovers that the quirky barista has a knack for making the perfect drink. Every time. Even before you order.

But is it intuition, luck or magic that has all Stiles’ customers leaving happy?

Bite Down Hard by KuriKuri | 25,730

For a moment, Derek can’t breathe.

Because moles aren’t the only thing marring the pale skin of Stiles’ neck. Oh no, that’s –

– that’s a bond bite. A bond bite which Stiles definitely did not have yesterday, and which appears to have roughly the same dimensions as Derek’s own mouth.

Shit.

(Or: In which Secret Service Agent Derek Hale accidentally gets bonded to First Son Stiles Stilinski. Oops.)

By a Law Divine by mirrorkill | 23,171 | * Favorite

Okay, so, kissing Stiles. That’s a weird thing that Derek’s doing now. He has no idea where it’s even coming from, especially considering bickering and fighting is their usual state of existence. And then he does find out where it’s coming from: A curse that’s making everyone in town kiss someone they have mutual feelings for.

…yeah, Derek’s not even sure why he’s surprised by that.

Choice by Omni | 8,613

Derek knows what it feels like to not really have a choice, what it’s like to be manipulated. He’d never take away someone’s right to choose freely. The fear of even accidentally doing so is enough to hold him back from acting on his own feelings.

Stiles has never had a problem making his own choices, and fuck anyone who would try to tell him he can’t.

(Or: Stiles gets bitten by a different alpha, but of course would prefer to have Derek as his alpha. And also just, you know, have Derek.)

don’t go changing (to try and please me) by Menacherie | 2,680

It’s not exactly planned, but it still manages to fuck things up, which is how life goes in Beacon Hills. He should be used to it by now, but he’s not.

Font size twenty-four by Vendelin | 10,430

Stiles is a librarian and research professional extraordinaire. So, when Derek comes in, asking for help with research for his new book, it’s only natural for Stiles to offer his help. He just didn’t count on late night waffle eating, or that his heart would go boom.

I Thought You Would Like That by Emela | 7,325 | * Praise Kink (fans self)

Yeah, that was pretty bad, but what was worse was having spent the last three years pretending to hate Stiles, because it was better than being the guy who failed at emotions and got rejected for them, and now Derek was locked in the same room as him under the promise they would only be let out when they “did something about their sexual tension”.

OR

The one where Derek and Stiles get locked in a room together at an office Christmas party, and end up having sex.

Noteworthy Observations by LadyDrace | 3,776

In which Derek recieves complimentary notes in his locker from a secret admirer, and though it turns out they weren’t actually for him, things turn out pretty well in the end.

Of Witches and Werewolves by alexenglish | 8,713

“I need you to have sex with Derek Hale like yesterday,” Lydia says, slamming her bag down on the table with more force than strictly necessary, mouth a tight line of displeasure. Stiles chokes on his boxed apple juice, sputtering, limbs flailing.

“Say it louder,” Stiles hisses, leaning forward so they can talk in low tones. “I don’t think they heard you in the back.”

Red Velvet by arrowofcarnations | 7,690

Stiles is pretty used to people coming to visit him at Sweet Stuff when he’s baking. It’s only when Isaac starts bringing along one Derek Hale that things start to get really interesting.

Shared Canvases by butyoureyessaidyes | 18,167

Apparently, Derek is being stalked by a renegade graffiti activist.

Or the college AU where Derek is a serious art student, and Stiles is the graffiti artist ruining his life (until he’s not).

Three Phone Calls by pandabomb | 15,696

“You’re not a hooker, Stiles.”
“Okay, yes, true, but—for a thousand dollars…”

An AU in which Scott and Stiles live in a shitty apartment in NYC, Lydia is still queenly, and Derek is a clueless rich guy who mistakes Stiles for a hooker.

Unwind by coffeeinallcaps | 15,047

Hope you enjoy your present, the text from Erica says. Payment’s taken care of. You can thank me tomorrow.

“So you’re a werewolf, huh,” the guy says when Derek looks up at him again. His gaze drifts down from Derek’s face to the rest of his body, slowly, shamelessly. When it’s traveled back up and their eyes meet again, the corner of the guy’s mouth twitches up into a cocky little half-smile. “I fucking love working with werewolves.” AU in which businessman Derek falls in love with escort Stiles.

You Can Hear It In the Silence by Mimiminaj | 7,241

Stiles focused on Derek’s face long enough to see a flicker of regret flash across it. Good. Serves him right for throwing him against a brick wall. Stiles felt his back hit said well, and he went limp as Derek worked his coat closed.
“I don’t think you can take me to the hospital though, Derek.”
The hands stilled.
“And why is that?”
“I don’t think they allow dogs.”
“I’m going to kill you.”


And one honorable mention; ‘cause drunk Derek singing country love songs deserves a re-read!! 

and i can easily understand, how easily you could take my man by bleepobleep | 1,908

“Your smile is like a breath of spring, your voice is soft like summer rain, and I cannot compete with you, Jordan…” 

The voice drifts along the hallway of the loft building, a clear tenor that’s rich with sorrow. Stiles stops in his tracks, is that…Derek? Singing a country song, twangs and all. It sounds good though. He must be still drunk, he’s not even getting the song right.

cay-slay  asked:

Hey over here! Hi, so I watched this Bill Nye video the other day and he said that if astrology was correct then the sun will rise in our zodiac sign on our birthday. He said that we are basing our sun signs on some ancient Aztec belief and that time has changed. If we watch the sun rise on our birthday today it would show up in the next zodiac sign. It really got me questioning my zodiac sign and astrology in general. Should we modernize the birth charts? Was this all wrong or is this all fake?

I’m coming off vacay to answer this question because this topic (not you just this specific topic frequently brought by scientists in an attempt to discredit astrology) irks me so much. I love Bill Nye and I love science. But astrology is not science. Astrology is an occult art. You can believe in it or not believe it. That’s your choice. But trying to disprove it based on scientific rules is pointless because astrology is actually beyond that.  It’s ancient, esoteric, and probably infinite.  First of all, scientists have been doing this a long time. Since astronomy split from astrology scientists have been making this argument.  But it is nothing new, it is not a new discovery. Every time there is a surge in popularity of astrology a scientist is around to say “hey dumb astrology fans there are actually 13 signs and you’re not really the sign you think you are. So that means astrology is fake”  

Astrologers are completely aware of this and it doesn’t matter because that’s not what astrology is. PTOLEMY KNEW ABOUT THIS. Also the Aztecs had a completely different astrology than the western zodiac. (I actually really love Aztec astrology and was considering integrating it into this blog when I really have the time.)  They have their own zodiac with a completely separate lineage though the ancient origins are most likely connected to modern astrology but that is a different story. Sidereal astrology is in line with the modern placement of the fixed constellations (though still only uses 12 signs and does not include Ophiuchus). Most people will have a different sign in Vedic astrology due to the issue of the fixed constellations. A Modern western school of astrology “13 signs Astrology” also attempts to rectify this perceived mistake of astrology. But Astrologers have ALWAYS KNOWN ABOUT THIS.  

Astrological interpretations are not actually based on the constellations whose placements are in fact perpetually and slowly shifting due to the earth’s “wobble” on its axis. Astrological interpretations are based on the ecliptic which is a permanent and basically an imaginary unchanging line encircling the earth.  Arguably at the time of the crystallization of our modern astrology the constellations did occupy those places in the ecliptic.  But they weren’t always there and didn’t stay there. Astrology existed before that and will continue long after but the esoteric truths will continue to exists.  

This is why I feel it is important to take Astrological studies very seriously. I encourage anyone genuinely interested to really study some books go to some workshops.  You don’t have to believe in it! If it doesn’t work for you don’t force it. It might not be for you and that is okay. I personally feel that astrology is more than just a way to indulge in narcissism and relationship compatibility. It is an ancient tool to understand the very nature of reality and the workings of the universe. But it exists in the realm of religion, philosophy, and magic and shouldn’t be validated or invalidated by the rules of modern science.  They are separate things.
