Alright so I know these spreads are pretty basic BUT I really needed some straight shooters today for a very specific situation I wanted to ask about.
Anyway, I think some of you will find these useful. I’ve found the ‘Wires’ spread to be particularly useful in that sometimes it’s good to know where the other person thinks you stand, because that helps you determine if there are any misunderstandings between you.
I’m also thinking of making graphics for the spreads I’ve found while digging through the tarot forums (with full credit to the original creators of course). What do you guys think?
Yuuri is in the kitchen when he hears Victor call it out in question. They had just finished up supper and Victor had cooked so Yuuri was in the kitchen washing up the dishes to return the favor. And he’s just standing by the dishwasher, humming idly and wondering if Victor has picked out a movie for them to watch or if tonight is going to be a night where they watch game shows featuring Victor yelling out the answers that can actually be correct on occasion. It had been a long day at the rink and Yuuri even wonders if maybe they’ll have a nice glass of wine before bed.
So, Yuuri is just minding his own business, not thinking twice when Victor calls out his name. He hums back, expecting a question or statement about leftovers but then…
From left to right: Temple of Minerva is in the best condition, while the Temple of Jupiter next to it has almost all of its walls still standing. The Temple of Juno has fared worse, but there is plenty to help you imagine what it must have looked in pristine condition. To the south of the forum is the Arch of Antionius Pius.
The southernmost of the three temples was dedicated to Minerva, which was the daughter of the two gods revered in the other two temples. She was considered to be the virgin goddess of warriors, poetry, medicine, wisdom, commerce, crafts and inventor of music. Her temple appears as the most impressive of the three from the outside, and even the interior is in excellent condition.
The Temple of Jupiter stands in the middle, being the temple of the most important of all gods in the Roman pantheon. It is the largest temple, and deduced from its present, excellent condition, it was the object of first-class engineering. It is noteworthy that the temple has no entrance by itself, it was entered by bridges across arches from either of the other two temples.
The Temple of Juno is by far the least impressive of the three making up the Capitol. It is also the most ruined one. Juno was the Queen of the gods, the wife of Jupiter and the mother of Minerva. The niche in the middle had a statue of the goddess, which has never been found.
“I was born in a hospital in Incheon on March 31st, 1990. I’m the youngest out of two sons and one daughter in our family. My brother and I are twins.”
“I learned how to speak really late. I couldn’t speak till I was 5 so my family thought I was mute.”
, I received a lot of awards in competitions like children’s arts or math competitions. My older brother always placed 1st and I was always 2nd though.”
“I used to really like sports when I entered elementary school. I liked all types of sports. In third grade, I was recommended by my coach to sign up for little league baseball since I liked sports and in 6th grade, I started soccer but because I caught the eyes of a recruiter from a different elementary, I even went to practice at a different soccer team in another school. Also, I entered a basketball team without my parents knowing, in which I even advanced to the National Sports Festival. Back then, the anticipation of my surroundings were high and some even believed I’d become an amazing athlete. However, I wasn’t able to achieve that due to my parents being against it.”
“Because both of my parents were working in Seoul to provide income for our family, I spent majority of my adolescent days at my grandfather’s house. Even for school arts festivals, my parents never came and at the time, I was upset since I was younger but my grandmother always did.”
When he entered junior high, Yongguk rejoined his parents living in Seoul.
“I started gaining interest in music from junior high and on. One day, I just thought how hip hop music seemed cool. It was also because my older sister liked American music so when I’d turn on the computer in our house, there were only songs in that genre. Because of that, I naturally began listening to hip hop music and gained interest, which led me to start looking for related videos myself.”
“I think after seeing videos with rapping in it, I realized then for the first time that I wanted to rap myself.”
“In my second year of junior high I wrote lyrics for the first time. After composing lyrics, coincidentally I found an online forum that comprised of people who were interested in hip hop and rap just like me and it was a whole new world. I posted my lyrics for the first time on an online forum and the responses were really good. At the time, I saw lots of responses like, “Your rap is unique” and “It’s refreshing.”
How did I feel? Of course I felt so happy that I felt like I was going to fly. Many people listened to my music and I even received a question that asked, “Do you live outside of the country?” I think my motive back then was to not be swayed by the trend and prove “I only do my kind of music” to others.”
In high school, Bang Yongguk was really a quiet student. Despite moving onto the same high school as his friends that he was with in his junior high years, he was known to be the kid who never really talked.
“I didn’t really talk in high school and I would just go to school and come back home to do music:
that was all I did.”
In his second year of high school, Bang Yongguk started meeting up with his hyungs (who are label-mates with him currently) that were promoting at the time and began studying on composing. He said he started gaining more knowledge about music from professionals who were around this time.
“In meeting up with the hyungs of our label back then, I composed by myself. My spectrum in music began expanding and seeing them produce music, I learnt a lot from it. Even when writing lyrics, I used to just write what came to mind before but, then, I think I started thinking a little more before jotting down lyrics.”
However, Bang Yongguk’s parents were very against him doing music.
“Because my parents didn’t like me doing music, I even rebelled for the first time.
I used to sneak out to produce music alone. The storage room we had, I remodeled it into a producing room and I used to stay there. That was the place where the life of rapper Bang Yongguk began.”
However, the bigger his dreams got, his parents’ disapproval grew stronger as well, but both parties eventually found a compromise:
“My parents told me, “Be studious first and then do what you like,” so I opened my eyes to studying as well. Having them tell me that they wouldn’t say anything afterwards once I would achieve something first, I went to the library by myself and began studying. My test scores? I eventually ranked first in the entire school. Even after that, I maintained my status in our school’s top rankings (smiles).”
With him being motivated to focus on his studies so that he would be able to make music in the future, he earned a scholarship, of course, but was also offered a job in a major corporation that is one of the top nationwide.
“I received an excellence award in studies for the first time in my entire life and received a scholarship as well. Once I graduated high school, I was even offered a job in the S Corporation (Samsung). However, I wasn’t interested in any of those and I only had one thing in mind which was music.”
“I showed my parents my all in terms of being studious and it was my turn to do what I wanted which was to pursue in music. Eventually, I was able to convince my mother and she began to have an optimistic outlook on me pursuing music as well.”
“When I was 20, all I had to me was music really. When I promoted underground, I promoted with a quite popular crew and we released a compilation album, even so as to holding a nationwide tour and I stood on stage without any worries.”
However, Bang Yongguk never knew what satisfaction was. He even left the crew for the purpose of finding his own color in music and was on the constant search for finding his own kind of music.
“Even when I was a part of the crew, I still had dreams of going through my own challenges and when I left the crew, I still did music by myself underground. It was a difficult period of time in my life but with music, I was able to hold strong.”
With him being stubborn about music constantly, the opportunity of a major debut was given to him by fate.
“In 2010, the Untouchable hyungs that I’ve always known and was close with told a representative of our current label about me and when I was contacted by them for the first time, they said they wanted to make a hip hop idol group. I was shocked in hearing the term “idol.”
“I hesitated a lot at the time and I thought that if I was classified under an idol group, it would mean that the spectrum of music I was able to put out was limited. However, they told me, “If you come into this group, you’ll be able to live out your dreams” and that’s how they convinced me. After hearing about the members, I thought, “If I just work harder, it can be a good group.” So I told them I’d do it.”
And that was how Yongguk took his first step into the TS Entertainment company.
Before I found Fishblr, I used to be apart of a fish forum that was FULL of know-it-alls, agism, and decade’s old info.
A lot of it actually pissed me off, and I thought I’d post some of the nonsense here, and see what you all think?
-I was told that aquarium salt is one of the worst things you can use for a betta, and if water changes don’t suffice, you should skip right to antibiotics. Salt does nothing for your betta, except damage it’s liver and kidneys.
*I honestly think this is utter bullshit. I was totally taken aback when I read this. Salt does have healing properties, and has been shown to be beneficial in fin and gill health. I’ve personally had great results with salt, and would never skip right to antibiotics. As a matter of fact, if kidney damage is as much a concern as it is with salt, I wouldn’t use antibiotics either!
-Bettas can’t recognize their keepers by action or gesture. All humans are humans to them.
*My bettas know me, they know my hands, and the way I move. If you get anyone else poking around their tanks, they go wild and hide. With me, they actually come up to my hands and try nibbling on them.
-The only reason bettas greet you at the side of the tank, is because they felt the vibrations of your feet, walking towards their tank.
*Bullshit. I weigh 100 lbs soaking wet, and my house is built on a solid concrete foundation. I could be wearing lead boots and stomp around, and I bet my fish wouldn’t feel these said “vibrations”. I could see them becoming accustomed to the sound, and your arrival, given you didn’t have a concrete foundation, but it’s not essential, and not the only way they know of your presents.
-Bettas have terrible eyesite, and cannot see more than a foot or two in front of them.
*I am currently about 12 ft from my furthest tank, and Peaches is doing her food wiggles for me. The closest tank is about 8 ft, and Nanners is staring at me. :p
-They are incapable of feeling pain and fear.
*The amount of bull with this one, makes me want to scream! The person who posted this said that betta/fish in general, are incapable of experiencing pain as humans do. I.e., they only “react” to uncomfortable situations, because they’re prey animals, and don’t want to be eaten. (Idk how the hell they came up with that). A fish will swim away from pain, because that’s all they can do. Humans will pull their hands back from a burning flame. It’s the same thing! Not to mention, fish don’t always swim away from these annoyances, they’ll actively try to dislodge parasites, such as the Ich! They do feel sensations, and they know when they don’t like something.
I’m sure there were more, but these are some that stood out in my mind. All these people were super rude and condescending, it was ridiculous. I’m so glad I found fishblr. UwU
a/n: this came out longer than i expected bc i got carried away with the ridiculousness of soonyoung
soulmate au where you will switch bodies with each other randomly
everyone thought soonyoung was the unlucky 1% that didn’t have a soulmate
why? because he didn’t have anything that showed signs of having one
he didn’t have a timer, he couldn’t hear his soul mates thoughts, he couldn’t feel anything his soulmate did
but soonyoung was positive, no matter how many people gave him that pity look soonyoung always smiled brightly because he definitely knows he has one.
soonyoung looked online for answers and he found a forum about people who didn’t have any physical signs of a soulmate, he discovered that for some people it takes time for it to develop
so that’s what soonyoung believes
“it’s not that I don’t have a soulmate. I just haven’t figured out how to find them”
he’s really positive through all of this, he’s just this kind of really free spirit that whole heartedly believes he has one and on the off chance that he is in fact that 1% well he says he’ll just steal seokmin’s soul mate
the first time he switched bodies with you wow did he freak out a lot
he woke up really groggy and didn’t know where he was because the blanket was a lot fluffier than he remembered and when did he get a lot more pillows and why does his chest feel heavy
soonyoung literally shoots up out of bed and falls off and He’s running to the bathroom and he has this horrified face like “IM A GIRL”
he’s really really really confused and so he does what any person would go
google ‘'why did I suddenly turn into a girl’
turns out a lot of the results point towards soulmates and now soonyoung is grinning from ear to ear like “TAKE THAT SEOKMIN I ACTUALLY HAVE A SOULMATE”
and for 10 minutes soonyoung stares in the mirror bc wow his soulmate is kinda breathtaking even with bed hair
feels really really really bad bc he has to change out of your pajamas and He’s closing his eyes with your shirt off trying to find another shirt and He’s screaming “IM SORRY”
leaves a note on your mirror saying he’s sorry once again
finally changes into normal clothes and because he feels kind of skeptic, he’s slowly stepping out of your room
found your phone and wants to unlock it but doesn’t know the password so he can’t really call anyone
instead he locks himself in your apartment out of fear because he doesn’t know what a girl acts like
decides to binge watch tv shows and eat the junk food you had lying around (you did not appreciate the 15 bags of snacks he decided to eat)
he discovers your laptop and luckily for him it wasn’t locked, he’s messing around when it finally occurs to him that he could log into his facebook and call the members
video calls seokmin
seokmin screams when a girl answers “WHO ARE YOU”
soonyoung decides to mess with seokmin like “hi seokmin, I really enjoyed our time last night”
cue seokmins soulmate in the background asking who she is and why they were together
soonyoung laughing his ass off before he’s like “okay sorry, it’s soonyoung’
“stop lying, soonyoung is a boy”
“I’m soonyoung I switched bodies with my soul mate”
“DID SOONYOUNG PUT YOU UP TO THIS.”
“I SAID IM SOONYOUNG”
that goes on for 5 minutes before soonyoung is finally like “FINE THEN WHERE IS SOONYOUNG”
soonyoung goes to his apartment bc apparently his soulmate locked themselves in his room and refuses to come out
when the doors open Chan, Minghao, and Jun are staring at the small girl at the door like “who are you”
“I’m here for soonyoung”
Chan: he’s kind of busy right now
soonyoung doesn’t even bother, he walked right straight in and knocks on his door “hey its me.”
and the three boys watch in astonishment as the door opens and the girl is being pulled in
‘'does soonyoung have a girlfriend”
now soonyoung is looking at himself in the eyes of his soulmate
“did you change my clothes?”
“iM SORRY I SWEAR I DIDNT LOOK THOUGH.”
you two just kinda sit in his room together really astonished that this was how the universe decided to have you guys be soul mates
and its really silent for a while before soonyoung says “I didn’t look at your body but did you?”
“ARE YOU SERIOUSLY ASKING THAT RIGHT NOW”
“I WAS JUST CURIOUS”
it isn’t until the next morning when you guys switch back, so you basically spent the whole night together kind of getting to know each other
when you two switch back its a fight for the bathroom because you two literally held it in for 24 hours
“THIS IS MY BATHROOM”
“YOU CHANGED MY CLOTHES WITHOUT ASKING”
jun, minghao, and chan sitting in the kitchen staring at the chaos because one) soonyoung just spent the night with a girl and two) what was that about changing her clothes
after telling everyone the whole body switch situation everything just kinda makes sense now
you and soonyoung will switch bodies at least once a month
its really weird and random but you two actually end up enjoying it after the first few times
you asked soonyoung to dance in your body once and you literally developed a massive crush on yourself bc you looked good
you and soonyoung actually start to get use to being in each others bodies like you don’t mind using the bathroom in his body (since you saw it while doing the do)
soonyoung acts cutely when he’s in your body, says oppa a lot because it sounds cute from your voice
“I swear to god soonyoung”
HE ONCE GOT YOUR PERIOD WHILE IN YOUR BODY AND STARTED SCREAMING THAT HE WAS DYING
it was the worse body switch of your life because soonyoung cried saying his face was so beautiful
soonyoung uses your body to flirt and mess with the guys
the first time soonyoung knew he loved you was the day after your 3rd time switching bodies
he woke up with you snuggled into his chest, his arm was being used as your head rest as you lazily had your arm draped around his stomach
and you were dressed in his large white t-shirt with shorts on and even though he was the one that put it on the day before it was an entirely new sight with his actual eyes
he couldn’t help but stare at your features because he found you so beautiful, so naturally breathtaking and he wondered if you saw just how beautiful you were to him when you are in his body
like he just can’t wrap his head around it, when he’s in your body he just thinks ‘'oh I’m y/n for today okay’ but when he’s looking at you with his own eyes and body, he just feels his chest thump loudly and all he wants to do is lift you in his arms and pepper you with kisses
and while he’s watching you sleep soundly into his chest with bits of drool at the ends of your mouth he’s swooning in his head and his whole body fills with joy and that’s when he knows he’s head over heels
soonyoung prefers sports bras over regular ones and you could not agree more
you two literally bond a lot about the struggles of being a guy and girl
you once gave guy advice to the other boys and it was really awkward because they always forget that you become soonyoung once a month
jun once complimented your body to soonyoung while you were in soonyoungs body
it was awkward so you decided to not tell jun that it was the time of the month
but you appreciated the compliment
while in your body, soonyoung got hit on and he didn’t know what to do
“being a girl is hard”
once got turned on while in your body
“WE ARE NOT TRYING WHILE OUR BODIES ARE SWITCHED SOONYOUNG”
soulmate soonyoung is a really cute free spirited guy that respects your body while he’s in it. and he just really really loves you and always makes sure your body is in tip top shape for the next day. he’s also just a cute bun that likes to mess with others but by the end of the day he just loves snuggling with you and holding you in his arms
