flying lines

Chant for Motivation

Swift are my feet and focused is my mind.

So fast I am that time falls behind.

Ready be my hands to do tasks that must be done

And steady be my feet to walk me through each and every one.

May I be driven by desire to complete

Whatever task is given to me.

Tell us about the parrots and the zipline? That sounds like the worst thing to happen ever.

Oh boy ok brace yourself cause this entire debacle was just a mess. Imma tell the story of this entire day cause it was just absolute bs 

So I’m in Mexico with my family, yknow, having a nice vacation. My dad doesn’t do heat, so it was just my grandparents, my mom, and me. Keep in mind, I was like, 16 at the time, so this was a few years ago now. 

So, i fully admit, I’m a bit of an adrenaline junkie. Always have been, always will be. So when they said we could go to a massive park that was 90% underground, and the rest was like 300ft in the air, i jumped at the opprotunity.

so we get there and I immediatly beeline for the ziplines. Now, you can’t just do one of these suckers. Once you do one, there’s no going back until you’ve conquered all 12 (or something like that, there was a lot.) It took the better part of two exhausting hours to get through them all. 

So before the parrot issue there was some other bs first. We brought my best friend with me that year, but because we were both too light, we had to go tandum for a lot of the lines, or else we wouldn’t make it across. We’d just get stuck in the middle of the line dangling like a pinata, and no body wants that.

so the first bs comes along. I’m singing the batman theme song to keep my friend calm, because she is not a fan of heights. Like, we are screaming NANANANANANANA BATMAAAAAN at the top of our lungs. And we look ahead and see this massive gap in the trees. Now, we’d gone over a couple cinotes already where we could see the people doing the under ground activities. We figued, hey, let’s laugh at the people doing the river swim that’ll make us feel better. SO we get up on it and my friend starts freak tf out. It wasn’t a cinote.

it was a snake pit.

A massive round, man made snake pit will with hundreds of writhing snakes. They were climbing the walls, even the trees that were like 3ft from our toes. So we’re freaking out like “I don’t wanna be indiana jones i’m too young!!” But we pass it with no problem. We keep going another few second or so, and we see another break in the trees. We’re bracing like cause we assume it was another snake pit. It wasn’t.

It was a crocodile pit.

cue freak out number two.

but we pass it and all is well. Then we come onto the landing strip. We were just starting out so this one was pretty low to the ground. And then i see a weird shape on the grass landing pad.

There was a crocodile on the lawn

we freaked OUT like you wouldn’t believe.

so we’re soaring at this thing and there’s no stopping. We’re waving at the guys who are supposed to catch us with a net like “yo guys u got a coc problem.” and they don’t seem bothered in the slightest. We pass over this thing and it doesn’t move, but i’m 99% sure i tried to kick it. Now we’re free we’re safe and we should be slowing down…why aren’t we slowing down.

we slam into the safety net full force and bounce back a couple feet. When we manage to unhook ourselves we find the two duded pissing themselves laughing.

it was a fake crocodile. i tried to kick a concrete lawn ornament.

onto the parrots.

for this next one my friend was freaking out, as we were over 300ft up. I wanted to go asap so i went attached to my mom instead. At this point, i am alrady 5′8″, and my mom is like 5′5″. so you have this massive beanpole of a child strapped to her tiny mother. So we take off and our combined weight has us absolutely flying down the line. It’s all idealyic and serene, and i’m enjoying my crocodile free cruise. I look down and through a break in the trees i spot the amphibian vehicles going in and out of the cave systems. All good. Right beside them is a pack of leopards sunning themselves on a rock, which is also directly below us. and im thinking “wow, this would a crappy time to fall” immediatly i hear


my legs hurt all of a sudden. I glance down and see blood dripping down my leg. Mom is screaming/laughing.

we hit a flock of parents mid flight

and they were pissed.

So im screaming and swatting at them, they’re screeching like little feathered demons and pecking t us, some were dangling off my shoe laces, shriekingly like hellions. I still have scars from those suckers. They eventually fly off starnig us down like “dont ever come to our terf again” 

we finished the ziplines without incident after that.

but my day isnt over yet.

we have a wonderful lunch, i get my legs cleaned up, and we make the trek to the amphibian vehicles i saw earlier. We hop in and we’re going through the motions. Up and down, into caves and out. Super cool. Loved it.Then we come to where i saw the leopards.

all the cars in front of us pass without incident.

the second we roll up the leopards perk up and start running after us

cue freakout number 4654783

now, my grandpa is driving and i’m sitting there, with nothing but a mesh door between me and a pack of leopards

“grandpa go faster, we gotta goooo” and he just looks at me all calm like

“i know why they’re here.”


He just calmly, oh so casually, pulls out a hot dog from lunch.I just kinda stare at him like GRANDPA

Obviously i do the smart thing

i grab that stupid hot dog at chuck at the nearest leopard

i hit it in the face

they all fall on each other trying to get a taste of that mustardy goodness and we take that moment to make our escape

and that was my” wth is going on in mexico extravaganza”

and that day didn’t even include the sting ray incident

NurseyWeek Prompt #3 - Challenge.

“Oh, it is fucking on, bros,” Lardo shouts over the incessant thumping of the bass. “You two are going to get obliterated.” She points an emphatic finger at Ransom and Holster, who stand shoulder to shoulder on the other side of the beer pong table. Holster cups his hand over his chin, rubbing it thoughtfully, and side-eyes Ransom.

“She shouldn’t be able to say words like ‘obliterated’ three cups of tub juice in,” he says. Ransom is just beginning to nod in agreement when he’s beaned smack in the middle of his forehead with a ping pong ball. Holster gets hit in the same spot half a second later, sending both of them reeling back, spluttering.

“You know, I figured four years was enough time for the two of you to learn not to underestimate my abilities,” Lardo says, tossing another ping pong ball up in the air. She cocks an eyebrow and catches the ball, meeting their gazes. “My mistake. Clearly, you need another lesson.”

Surprise, bitch

So, the process of tracking AO3 output has gotten a lot more time-consuming since the fandom expanded (the amount of new fics per month has tripled!) and I haven’t made a new post in a couple of months, but I’m still here. I may be crying over some of these weird-ass ship combinations y’all come up with, but I will survive.

Here’s where we stand as of the end of January:

If you’re reading this and going “WAIT, THAT DOESN’T MATCH WHAT AO3 SAYS!” then ding ding ding, you are correct.

I first loved you
Second to your gentleness

Like the blind who
Divide their lives into
Dark and dark I
Have you and your gentleness

As a detail in a painting frames that painting
In the often
Memory, your face
Is surrounded by your eyes
Of the grays of gentleness

anonymous asked:

Jaladdin were paralleled SQ and now Jaladdin are confirmed TL's. Do u think it's a good sign that SQ cud b confirmed TL in the future?

Let’s see, we had… 

…more references to Emma & Regina’s past.

We had a marriage out of duty because both her father and the man she was supposed to marry said so - remember Charming giving his blessing was more beautiful than the proposal? During an arc where Emma is struggling with her duty as the Savior and how it means she can’t have a happy ending. We had Ariel coming out as a mermaid and her man rejecting her - he wasn’t the man she thought he was. In this case literally. 

There was the most romantic scene from Aladdin and it was given to two women - one of which concealed her true identity which was linked to her having a voice. Ariel even said they knew each other in various ways in case the carpet ride didn’t do it for people. The True Love Hook ended up enabling was that between Aladdin and Jasmine. Was that foreshadowing as well?

The solution was for Jasmine to stand up to her oppressor - also don’t tell me Jafar didn’t act like a sexual predator or that Jasmine’s fear didn’t seem to be about exactly that - and to give in to the love she didn’t think she deserved. 

After an episode where what Regina hates most is linked to a closet, while love was associated with pink flowers, a rainbow/bisexual colored entrance and the person who told her father how to get there was… a fairy? Really?

Not to mention we also had Regina asking Emma out on a date, all dressed up. Like Aladdin with Jasmine, she was trying to get Emma to open up. Emma’s behavior and lines meanwhile were once again up for interpretation.

She almost gestures at Regina when saying the thing she would like to be distracted from. They could have easily made her refer to Hook. Later the same happened when they let Aesop tell a story in which Emma could have identified with either Aesop himself or the wife who decided she didn’t love him. All of this kept open for interpretation combined with the Aladdin and Jasmine story.

They have both metaphorically come out of the closet, which would explain the current evolution between them. We have an upcoming episode titled “Where Bluebirds Fly”, which is a line from ‘Somewhere over the rainbow’ from the Wizard of OZ, which is queer in itself, but this show has a lesbian Dorothy and True Love’s Kiss took place in Oz. We have a musical episode - where generally feelings are addressed - and we are also headed toward the final battle. Which - considering the psychology of this show - will represent a battle with the self on the metaphorical level no matter who the players are. 

So all in all, I thought all those things could be considered pretty good signs, yes.
