An Aggressive Inconvenience

Anonymous: Can we get Dark or Anti being angry and yelling about something?

“WHERE THE HELL IS IT?!

I take back control and have free reign in this house of his, and out of everything that I’m looking for, there’s one missing from the list…! How do you lose something so simple in this large of a house, Mark?

Never mind the fact that everyone ELSE is away for the day with the dog!

Seriously… (breathing heavily)

WHERE THE FUCK IS THE EYELINER PENCIL?!

Yesterday my mother in law saw me in a different, shrouded light. Kyle was reassuring her that we will be financially stable soon because I was working now. She couldn’t let go of the idea that I was working telecommunications/remote customer service. She even suggested that I moved to Illinois with Loralai and stay rent free at the house on the split level floor; yes, without Kyle. This pushed him to saying I’m doing phone sex and that the pay checks will be above average once I get back into it firmly.
She was devastated.
“She’s a Christian woman!”
“I just … I don’t understand, that goes against everything.”
“How do you feel about this? How does it feel to have her working in such a job with men?”
“I just can’t believe it. I mean that it’s come to this.”

My amazing husband has a strong response to each and everything she said. Positively uplifting me and giving me the rightful praise every working mother should have; especially a sex worker.

Undertale g/t rp Anyone?

*i Was walking in The forest. All alone. I didn"t know where i Was going. I Was on The surface and monsters seemed to have gone free. I noticed a house not so far away. But then suddenly. I feelt my self being lifted of The ground.


Anybody? ;W;

anonymous asked:

There are so many banks that claim to be "Islamic", that is "Interest Free" banking. Could you explain please which banks are preferable?

The institutions that function based on the system of profit and loss are permissible because our religion regards them as commercial institutions. Money can be invested in those institutions and the profit share given by them is halal (legitimate).

Interest-free finance houses

Interest-free Finance Houses usually carry out the transaction of murabaha (selling on profit) due to the special conditions of Turkey. The term murabaha means buying goods at cash price and selling them at deferred payment price. When the private finance house determines the deferred payment price, it takes some criteria into consideration; among those criteria are inflation, the probable yield of the money in the market when it is invested in other instruments, and some other things… The finance house has to meet the expectations of its shareholders that invest money (the holders of profit and loss accounts). A shareholder (account holder) that invests money with the expectation of profit will withdraw his money if he cannot even receive the inflation difference, that is, the value loss caused by inflation, and the finance house will be unable to operate. It is not enough to compensate the inflation difference; it is also necessary to give some real profit. Since the deferred payment price is arranged based on those necessities, it sometimes becomes a bit lower than the bank interest rates and sometimes more than the bank interest rates. However, it is not possible to say that the transaction is illegitimate only by taking that state (that is, the fact that the profit and the interest rates are close to or different from each other) into consideration. In general, the profit in legitimate trade and the sector of industry is like that; sometimes it becomes equal to interest rate, and sometimes it can be different.

Trade is carried out by buying and selling goods in return for a price. Private Finance houses do the same things in the transaction of murabaha. The buying and selling take place in two forms:

a) The finance house appoints its employee to get the goods and to deliver them to the customer; the invoices are issued in compliance with that transaction (two invoices are issued: one by the seller and one by the finance house).

b) The finance house gives the customer who wants to buy goods (according to some questions the person who wants to use funds) written authority to buy goods; the customer buys the goods on behalf of the finance house and the invoice is issued to the finance house; the customer receives the goods on behalf of the finance house and transports it to the place where the finance house wants (it may be his own store or shop); then he buys the goods from the finance house as the customer; this time the finance house issues the invoice to him.

Both transactions are in compliance with fiqh (Islam). It is necessary to know the intention of the parties in order to call it cheating; if the aim is to give/take credit with interest, it is called cheating; if the aim is to really sell goods through deferred payment sale (if the goods are really bought and sold), it cannot be called cheating.

Private finance houses have two more transactions that are nearer to interest-free system – in terms of their economic and social effects - : mudaraba and musharaka.

In mudaraba, a partnership based on the capital from the finance house and the project and administration (labor, enterprise) from the other party is established. Profit is shared in accordance with the contract. The share of the finance house is shared between the bank and the participation account holders that invested in the finance house. If the enterprise suffers a loss, the finance house and the account holders undertake the loss.

In musharaka, partnership of capital is present; an entrepreneur that has some capital but needs some more asks the finance house to add some capital and become partners; a contract is made; the profit is shared in accordance with the contract and the loss is shared depending on the rate of capital. Interest-free banking has many other transactions and services like financial leasing, lending without interest, money transfer, collection of revenues, etc.

In the private finance houses, mudaraba and musharaka are carried out less in comparison to murabaha. Among the reasons why they are carried out less are the impatience of account holders, the expectation of profit without taking risks, the fact that accounts of the companies are partly off the book, lack of reliance and trust caused by the weakening of the consciousness and feelings of trust, keeping promises, loyalty and haram-halal. The better we, Muslims, get in terms of quantity and quality, the better our institutions will be.

Note: We recommend youto read the following views about the issue too.

Private Finance Houses (Participation Banks) and Prohibition of Interest

Private Finance Houses are institutions that are not regarded as banks and that accept funds in accordance with Islamic principles and allows using funds, that functions based on profit-loss partnership instead of interest for the methods of making use of savings and providing loans. The institutions that are named as “Islamic bank”s in the world are called Finance Houses in Turkey.

The fact that the population of Muslims who regard interest as haram have reached a great number in the West have increased the number Islamic finance institutions and caused the other banks to serve those people with the units that they have established.

“Islamic banking” is the fastest-growing finance sector in the world. Now, more than 200 Islamic finance institutions that are active in the world, direct a fund with an investment size of 200 billion dollars.

Furthermore, some of the banks that have established interest-free banking units within their organization are as follows:

Citibank-USA, Goldman Sachs-USA, HSBC- England, Deutshce Bank-Germany, Union Bank of Switzerland- Switzerland, Amro Bank-Holland, Kleinwort Benson, ANZ Grindlays Australia, United Bank of Kuwait and Arab Banking Corporation.

All of those institutions, which are among the greatest banks in the world, have interest-free banking in their organization. The list of banks that are starting interest-free banking is getting longer day by day.

Key Characteristics of Private Finance Houses:

1- They are interest-free:

The most distinguishing characteristic of those banks is that they do not carry out transactions with interest. That is, they do not pay interest for the funds that they obtain; they do not collect interest from their customers for the funds that they provide their customers with.

After all, the reason why they have been established is to serve the people who do not carry out transactions with interest due to their religious beliefs and to serve the companies of those people. Islam accepts that capital is one of the production factors and that it has a cost. However, it rejects the idea that the capital should demand a pre-determined yield, that is, interest. In other words, it is forbidden to earn money for money.

2- They are trade-related:

The fact that interest is forbidden, trade and profit are legitimate in Islam urges those institutions carry out trade related transactions with their customers. Since money trade is forbidden in Islam, it is necessary to carry out trade of goods in order to earn money.

3- They are equity related:

It is a generally accepted truth that pure Islamic banking includes loss-profit partnership (mudaraba) or capital participation (musharaka).

The capital owner can share the profit with the entrepreneur obtained thanks to his expertise and effort. The rate of the profit, which is the yield of the capital, that is, in what percentages it will be shared is determined beforehand but the amount is not certain.

4- The investments should be ethical:

The investments should be made within the framework of legitimate fields in terms of Islam. In this context, Islamic investments should be environment-friendly, alms-giving, enabling the participation of the community, respectful to humanitarian values, excluding pornography, armament, alcohol and gambling.

Primary products and services of private Finance Houses

1- Mudaraba and Musharaka:

They are the basic methods that form the essence of the Islamic banking in terms of fund using. However, since the yield comes in the long term, those transactions are not used sufficiently. It is indisputable that mudaraba and musharaka are in accordance with Shariah.

2- Leasing Transactions:

In the transaction of leasing, the finance house buys the machinery and equipment, rents it to the customer and collects the price of them in the form of installments. In our opinion, it is outside the prohibition of interest.

3- Murabaha:

In this method, the finance house buys the machinery, etc that the customer needs on behalf of the customer and sells it to the customer by adding some profit to them. The price of the goods is repaid to the finance house by the customer in the form of installments.

It is claimed that murabaha contains covered interest and that it resembles interest rather than commercial profit because it does not contain the risk factor that should be present in normal trade and the yield is predetermined. We do not think that those criticisms are right due to the following reasons:

• Murahaba is a kind of trade that is carried out upon ordering and that kind of trade is widespread in every market.

• The cost plus method used in pricing is a frequently used method in trade. It is completely normal that the seller adds a certain percentage of profit to the cost. That is, the profit margin is predetermined.

• The claim that murabaha does not contain the risk of the normal trade is not true. There exists the risk that the customer may not pay the price just as in the normal trade. It is called market risk or counter-party risk in terminology.

One of the most criticized issues is that the rate in the deferred payment price in murabaha is about the same as the rate of interest of the other banks and therefore it is covered interest.

In our opinion, that criticism is groundless because every merchant in the market has to consider the rate of inflation when he prices the goods for deferred payment. A deferred payment rate under the rate of inflation will inflict a loss on the seller. Similarly, private finance houses have to add a difference to the cost at least equal to the rate of inflation. The rate of inflation is the primary element that determines the rate of interest and it is generally in parallel with the rate of interest. Therefore, it is natural even necessary in terms of economy that the rate of deferred payment and the rate of interest is close to each other.

Therefore, the fact that the deferred payment rate is close to the rate of interest does not make murabaha an interest transaction. As it is explained above, private finance house function in an economy based on interest; it is not possible for the pricing of the funds to be unaffected by the current rates of interest.

Those explanations are also valid for leasing.

4- Buying and Selling Documents in Return for Goods

It is a method of providing funds by Private Finance Houses that form a “grey field”. Documents belonging to an export party realized thorough deferred payment sale are bought from the exporter in return for cash; then, they are sold to the same exporter by adding a difference of deferred payment and the money is collected in the form of installments. For instance, documents having a value of 50 thousand dollars are bought by the finance house from the customer in return for 45 thousand dollars and that amount is paid to the customer at once; simultaneously, the customer sells the documents to the finance house for 50 thousand dollars with deferred payment sale. 5 thousand dollars is the profit of the finance house and the cost of the customer.

It is very difficult to ignore that it is a transaction of discount no matter how good-intentioned you are. As a matter of fact, it can be claimed that those documents represent the goods and that they are tradable goods as in murabaha. However, it is very disputable to regard that defense as valid because the export subject to that transaction is a finished export. The goods have left the Turkish customs and probably have reached the country where the buyer is; at least, they are on the way somewhere outside Turkey. At any rate, the ownership of those goods is not in the exporter. However, the exporter is the debtee and a policy or bond among those documents proves that he has the right to receive the money. The document that the finance house buys and sells back is not the goods but the proof that the customer has the right to receive the money. The deferred debt that the exporter will receive in the future is paid to him now and an amount of money is collected from him. In other words, the customer is sold the time. It is called the time value of the money in finance and it is interest.

A policy or bond that bears the signature of the foreign importer and sometimes also the signature of the guarantor bank is a finance instrument. That document is arranged by the importer as an alternative for cash payment. That is, the importer has arranged a debt document in return for the transfer of the ownership of the goods to him. That bond has two uses:

a- It proves the debt relationship that originates from the foreign trade transaction in question.

b- It enables the exporter to transform the price of the export into cash by discounting it in a bank or finance institution without waiting for the redemption date.

The conclusion to be drawn from it is that the Private Finance House has a structure that is suitable to support exports before shipment not finished exports. The raw materials and intermediate goods to be used in the goods to be exported can be provided for the exporter through murabaha. When the export of ready-made goods is in question, those goods can be sold to the exporter through murabaha.

Pricing Services and Products

We sometimes observe that the services and products presented by Private Finance Houses are expensive and that they discontent and disappoint customers due to the prices higher than those of the commercial banks. Some people put forward that high pricing harms the Islamic characteristic of those institutions and puts them in the same level as banks with interest religiously.

First of all, we should state that high pricing does not transform a sound transaction into a transaction with interest religiously. For instance, a letter of guarantee given by a Private Finance Institution does not have any drawbacks religiously. The commission taken in return for that service is naturally legitimate. The fact that the rate of the commission is high does not turn the transaction of the letter of guarantee into a haram transaction.

However, criticisms stating that the customer is misused in terms of high commission and price that the trust is abused and that the amount taken for the service is high.

On the other hand, excessiveness in pricing can be regarded as an indication that the private finance house works with a high cost or that it carries out a wrong marketing policy.

What determines in which level the commissions and prices are regarded as reasonable is the market conditions and competition. In theory, a private finance house that charges more money than its competitors will fall behind and its market share will decrease. It is the punishment given to that institution by the market. Although what we have stated is true in theory, it is difficult to say that there exists real competition between the private finance houses and commercial banks in terms of customers because what determines the preference of the customer is the religion. The customers of those institutions do not actually go to private finance houses in order to receive cheaper service; the peace and comfort of acting in accordance with Islam plays an important role in preferring the bank that they need for banking services.

Therefore, the competition can be only among the private finance houses. Thus, the private finance houses should take that aspect of the issue into consideration when determining the prices for their customers and they should carry out pricing policies that will make them gain normal profits.

Let’s Get Something Straight.

LET HUFFLEPUFFS HAVE A RESTING BITCH FACE. LET HUFFLEPUFFS BE FIREY AND PASSIONATE. LET HUFFLEPUFFS BE INCREDIBLY WITTY AND STUDIOUS. LET HUFFLEPUFFS GET INTO FIST FIGHTS.

LET HUFFLEPUFFS BE MORE THAN FICKLE, POLITE, PACIFIST, HAPPY-GO-LUCKY, BLITHE, AND APPROACHABLE. BEING A HUFFLEPUFF IS MORE THAN LOOKING INNOCENT AND SWEET.

I am a Hufflepuff with a horrible resting bitch face. I am a Hufflepuff who people see as unapproachable. I am a Hufflepuff with strong beliefs and passion.

The traits found in Hufflepuff are listed below:

  • Dedication
  • Hard Work
  • Fair play
  • Patience
  • Kindness
  • Tolerance
  • Unafraid of toil
  • Loyalty

Hufflepuffs are dedicated. They are dedicated to their studies, their friends, their families, their hobbies- Hufflepuffs show dedication to the things they love. They don’t dedicate themselves to be praised. it is a self sacrificing quality, much like the rest of the Hufflepuff House traits. Dedication goes hand-in-hand with hard work. It’s enduring when shit hits the fan, it’s getting out of bed when all you want to do is sleep, it’s not accepting handouts, it’s becoming successful through honest work. Hufflepuffs get the most out of working hard, not smart. This isn’t because they aren’t smart, it’s because they believe it benefits them more. Hardwork brings knowledge. They learn how to fight with integrity to get what they want. They most definitely aren’t ones to cheat. Given the choice between cheating and failure, they would choose failure.

Patience is a virtue. I don’t take this to mean that Hufflepuffs don’t mind waiting around if a friend is running late, it means that Hufflepuffs are more willing than most to put a cap on their temperament. Hufflepuffs don’t get bothered easy. Whether it’s from natural ability or a constantly running internal monologue keeping them from blowing a fuse, they manage to handle adversity with as much dignity and grace as they can muster. I think it’s hard to tell what a Hufflepuff is thinking because they keep their opinions to themselves unless asked to express it. Patience has nothing to do with passion. A Hufflepuff is a master at picking their battles. They know what’s worth losing their temper over.  

Kindness: benevolent, intended for benefits rather than profit, loving, expressing goodwill. Who the fuck wants to be mean and rude all the time to everyone? Being kind does not mean being pushover. When did it become taboo to be kind? Why is being edgy all the sudden associated with being rude, pretentious, mean and cynical? Being kind is sincerely asking someone “how are you?” and being unafraid to receive an honest and drawn out response. Being kind is being a good listener, helping people for their benefit and not your own, it’s picking up trash in the movie theater so that the staff has less to clean. Being kind is leaving sweet, anonymous notes for people just to make their day a little bit better. Being kind is reveling in making someone smile or laugh. Being kind is smiling back when someone smiles at you. To be benevolent, to be nice, to be kind pushes away all self interest. It’s a selfless trait.

Tolerance is just nodding along with some gun slinging, homophobic, misogynistic jerk rambling about how Donald Trump will make America “great again”, even though you strongly disagree. Hufflepuffs, if you’ll notice, get along with virtually each house. They do not take it upon themselves to judge. Hufflepuffs are masters at accepting things that they cannot change; they cope well with diversity. If someone came up to a Hufflepuff and said that they were a supporter of pure-blood supremacy, the Hufflepuff would nod, say something (passive but sincere) along the lines of “that’s an interesting opinion,” then carry on with their day. Though they may not be at all happy about what was said, they do not take it upon themselves to get everyone to see the way that they see things. You can’t force people to listen. It’s not that Hufflepuffs don’t have opinions, they do, but, as the saying goes, “Opinions are like assholes, everybody has one.” They find that people respect your opinion and ask for it more when you present a judgement free environment for them.

This house is loyal. They’re a tolerant bunch, sure, but they will not tolerate bullies. It’s their sense of fraternity and loyalty that gives Hufflepuff something worth fighting for. It wouldn’t surprise me to see a Hufflepuff seventh year getting into a fist fight with a Ravenclaw seventh year because the Ravenclaw was making snarky remarks about a first year getting sorted into Hufflepuff. Hufflepuffs will argue, punch, kick, pull hair and scream if you somehow hurt someone they hold dear to them.  Don’t forget how fucking raw Badgers are. They’re one of the most fearless animals in the animal kingdom. This can maybe be seen as a flaw, however. In Goblet of Fire, the Hufflepuff House got so caught up in the competition between Cedric and Harry, good judgement was blurred by their unwavering loyalty. This brings me to believe that Hufflepuffs, if sufficiently provoked, can attack with the most underhanded and vicious insults ever. I don’t think it would be wise to bring a Hufflepuff to their breaking point in hopes of seeing this animosity. In most circumstances, however, loyalty is a virtue.  

I am so sick of the stigma that Hufflepuffs are these soft little balls of dough that are just so lukewarm compared to the other houses. Need I remind y’all that Hufflepuffs fought at the Battle of Hogwarts without hesitation? They rose to the occasion, they weren’t indifferent about the situation at hand at all- they were selfless, they were fearless. They fought because they loved their school, their friends, their teachers, and because it was the right thing to do.

  • Kindness should not be mistaken for weakness.
  • Tolerance should not be mistaken for neutrality
  • Patience should not be mistaken for dispassion
  • Loyalty gives them reason to fight
  • Hardwork and dedication make them goal-oriented
  • Fair play does not mean there is a lack of initiative

A Hufflepuff is not a clone of the Pillsbury Dough Boy. Hufflepuffs can have strong opinions, be passionate, reckless, brave, and enterprising.

Because Helga Hufflepuff didn’t sort her students by a particular aptitude, Hufflepuff should be one of the most diverse houses in Hogwarts. So don’t generalize all Hufflepuffs to fit the “looks like a cinnamon roll and is a cinnamon roll” archetype. Hufflepuffs can be fierce as fuck.

Slytherin Secrets no outsider will ever know.

1. The nights get ridiculously cold in the dungeons during the winter, you see. Sometimes not even the warming charms seem to cut it, so if everyone brings their blankets down to the common room and they sleep next to each other for body heat, no one needs to know that.

2. Horror stories told by the bloody baron under candlelight are a tradition during stormy nights. He even promises that one day, he might tell them just how he got bloody.

3. Slytherins don’t play ‘muggle’ games, absolutely not, specially not on Saturdays with a bottle of fire whiskey. So if you ever see empty bottles that you think might have been used to truth or dare or spin the bottle, or if you ever see a monopoly or dungeons and dragons box, you are imagining things, obviously.

4. Sometimes, if you ask nicely enough, the mermaids will agree to make small ‘theatrical plays’ for you and your friends. So be kind to them and enjoy funny and dramatic ‘pirate’ stories.

5. One particular night that they’ll never, ever talk about again, is when they were drinking fire whiskey and drank past “having a good time” straight into “getting emotional” and then proceeded to talk about how sad it made them that all houses seemed to think they’re evil.

6. “Guys… am I the only one who doesn’t like Professor Snape?” “oh thank fuck it’s not just me.”

7. “The half-blood fifth year brought muggle sweets.” “Muggle sweets?” “Try them. These Reese’s are the best thing I’ve ever had.”

8. “Let’s make a bet on what stunt Potter will pull at the end of the year.”

9. Someone once suggested that every Slytherin should take a shot whenever Draco complained about Harry. No amount of hangover potion could make 17+ Slytherins get out of bed the next morning.

10. A few boys and girls found out about an LGBT+ meeting club the Hufflepuffs were holding. So ever since then, Hufflepuff and Slytherin LGBT+ members meet up every Thursday at 6 o'clock.

11. The Slytherin common room always smells incredible. The Hufflepuffs give them ‘scented candles’, you see.

12. Planning trips together all over Europe. Fulfilling those plans during the winter and summer holidays.

13. Slytherins don’t prank you with moldy cheese or explosive artifacts. Oh no. You make a fellow Slytherin mad and you won’t find your robes or your skirts next morning. Someone will pull on your feet while you sleep.

Being pregnant with Steve Rogers' baby:

Originally posted by closer-to-the-edge-of-glory

• Without any doubt, when you discover your pregnancy, you are already married to Steve.
   - Some people around him tend to forget it, but he has been raised in the Catholic values. It means, he still believes in God, and for him, starting a family means being committed and happily married.
• Steve is speechless for a quick moment when you tell him about your pregnancy.
• However, the shock of the news swallowed, he takes you in his arms, careful to not use his super-strength and he peppers kisses all over your face.
• He chuckles, saying he is the happiest man on the planet and he gives you that smile. The same smile that made your knees go weak.
• After a long moment, he releases you from his arms in panic because he thinks he’s hurting the baby.
• Your husband immediately finds a safe house like Clint’s, but a Brooklyn inspired one. Nobody knows about your home location to protect your future family.
• The team is overly happy that a mini-avenger is on their way! Natasha is the happiest of all and she can’t hide her tears.
• Tony calls himself godfather or uncle… it depends on the days.
  - “No, Tony! My child isn’t going to wear a metal suit.”
  - “Steve, I’m obviously the uncle here, so this baby will have tons of gifts, including a suit.”
  - “I swear if you-”
  - “Y/N, your husband is threatening me.”
• He hates the morning sicknesses as much as you because he feels helpless.
• Steve spends his free days making your house safe for the baby.
• You are annoyed that you can’t go on missions for a while and you get bored easily.
• But your husband spoils you whenever he can. He just makes sure you are comfortable and happy all the time. He’s the sweetest of all.
• Steve buys every book he finds and does all the research he needs because he wants to be ready to welcome the baby.
• Sam and Bucky are always here to calm him down when he’s feeling stressed.
• Gosh, he is so adorable when he is with you. He keeps saying you are his safe haven.
• He overreacts every time he learns something new about the pregnancy.
• Steve is worried your child will have the same issues he had before the serum, but you tell him this baby will be loved and cherished, anyway.
• You cuddle all the time.
• He’s so into you, though!
• The first time you can really feel the baby kicks, you rush to his office and without a word, you place his hand on your stomach. This is a very emotional moment for both of you.
• Since then, he always asks you before rubbing your belly and listening to your baby.
• Steve confesses he is afraid of fatherhood because of his family’s story.
• You tell him that he will learn just like you and if he protects the baby as much as you, then they will never catch a cold.
• Never.
• You try to convince your husband to go on missions because that’s his duty.
• He promises you he will come back and he tries to call you every day to have some news whether they are important or unnecessary to share.
• When you’re away, Steve asks Laura for help every time your hormones drive you mad.
• - “You’re so beautiful in that dress. Let’s go for a walk in the park?”
  - “You disabled the Wi-Fi on my laptop once again, haven’t you?”
  - “Uh…?”
  - “Steve.”
  - “But it’s not healthy for anyone, doll!”
• He says he doesn’t have a preference about the gender of your baby, but he secretly wants a girl. He thinks there are too many male members of the Avengers family.
• During the last months of your pregnancy, Steve places his cup of coffee on your belly just to make you laugh.
• You think of calling your baby either Sarah if it’s a girl or James if it’s a boy.

Bonus:
• Steve tries to be so prepared that he’s got a whole schedule made out for the day you would go into labor. He named it: Rogers family’s D-Day.
• When you finally go to the hospital, he grips your hand harder than you are holding is.
• Even though you are completely exhausted after giving birth to your baby, your husband thinks you are the most beautiful woman in the world.
• So many tears are shed when Steve holds and looks down at the baby for the first time. His whole life he thought he’d never have his own family and now that he does, he can’t even explain how happy he is.

Cardinal Signs, Aries, Cancer, Libra, and Capricorn
Energies of the Sky

The Cardinal Signs operate from pulses of energy, like a surging thumps that vibrate personally and socially. Like young cardinals taking flight, there is effervescence, light, and vitality. The cardinals have a sensitive temperament. They are capable of accumulating balls of energy but suffer with overload and static sensations when this energy is not appropriately released. This is really a skill of the cardinal, they know how to focus their energies into one source. And they cannot be pushed. They move in their own time. These energies are expressed uniquely and singularly through each sign, more overtly and reckless in Aries and subdued in Capricorn. The Cardinal modality aligns with the four angular houses so their individual vibrations are persuasive in their own ways. Aries ruling the 1st house free falls into the world via unrelenting forces of energy, seeking personal experience for meaningful development. But Aries cannot survive as a model of solo action. They also require the provocation or hindrance of other spirits to generate social awareness. Cancer is the ruler of the 4th house, and these are the waters of life that birth, nourish, and sustain. Their energy is focused to extreme, pulsating toward protecting and defending herself and the family unit, and giving energy into the shell that helps her survive the chaos. The volatile nature of Cancer’s inner world reveals some of the Cardinal strength and energy sources that can be unrelenting, durable, unpredictable, and ultra sensitive. It takes a fiery spirit to battle their inner state. Libra is the ruler of the 7th house and the descendant as the sun sets. These shadows begin to dilute the personality, it requires all-consuming social needs and trepidation when faced with isolation. Libra is ultimately energised socially and activated in the pursuit of forming relationships, maintaining contracts, and upholding law. The Libra temperament can be quite unpredictable. They can experience sudden and confusing ruptures of energy that their airy mind is unable to interpret. This is when you see the shaky and tantrum energies of Libra rise from dissatisfied cardinal forces. Capricorn is the final cardinal modality and sits on the 10th house with the midheaven. Capricorn’s energies ultimately disperse through the whole chart because she largely operates on mastering it all, conquering inexplicable heights, and proving herself beyond all expectation. Her energies basically spill through the whole chart because she is here to conquer everything. The cardinal forces in Capricorn are largely internalised but directed socially, in terms of providing, prestige, and crusading toward their dreams written in the sky. Their social responsibilities activate these Cardinal forces to leave the imprint on society that they long to.

805 Kirkland Hill Ave (cc free)

So I started working on this CC free house a while ago then my game broke but I came back and finished it. I havent gave you guys a house in a while so I thought I would give you one now! Lol. This is all CC -FREE HOWEVER!!!! I did make it with CC in the game so it says it is modded, you will have to click the include costume content when searching for it in your library. Place the files in the Tray folder as always in your documents for the game to get it into your library.

YOU WILL NEED ALL THE STUFF PACKS AND EXPANSIONS FOR THIS (except spooky stuff and the new bowling one) however if you dont have them, it will just replace things with base game items. But for it to look just like the pictures it is recommended to have all the things. 

I hope you guys enjoy it and I hope to post more houses in the future.

aries - you have to tear down your own walls first; love isn’t the kind to bleed through the cracks. she wants an ocean. give in.

Leo - i hope one day you can break free from your glass house.

Sagittarius- your love has thawed the ice in me; one day the sea levels will rise to drown my coastlines, and I will welcome your waves with all the love my arms can carry.

Taurus - i saw you in a dream once. i used to hold you when you would cry, but i know she’s stitched your wounds and you’re not crying anymore. i hope you’ve found your peace.

Virgo - they told you all roads lead home, but i know you lost yourself somewhere across the Atlantic when you left everything for something you weren’t sure you even wanted. i don’t know who you are anymore, but i hope you find it– whatever it is.

Capricorn - do you still see me in your skylines? i’ve forgotten what it’s like.

Gemini - they say you have another face hidden somewhere beneath your dress, but i’ve never known anyone who so unapologetically belonged to themselves. but tell me, are you really at war with the world? or is it all just a front? will you ever be caught late at night taking your mask off? i wonder what you think when you’re alone.

libra - i caught you once with your face in a book– did you ever catch me looking?

Aquarius - i worry about the way you love, but i envy it, too. there is beauty in always giving, but there is a loneliness so deep in loving what cannot be returned.

cancer - you are the light in every room, you are the beacon in every storm. you are my manna from heaven, you are the house that keeps me warm.

Scorpio - there are cobwebs in the corner where you used to sit, but sometimes I still see your footprints in the dust. you have a way of haunting the people you loved.

Pisces - your words are featherlight, but your actions are made of iron. one day I pray you learn the weight of what you have done.

140 Bay Drive

Hey guys! Im back with a Key West inspired house. This is house is placed in Oasis Springs across from the Rio Verda house. It has 3 bedrooms, an office, 2 bathrooms and a formal dinning room. The living room may be a little on the small side but I think it had plenty of walking space, the kitchen is in the back with a door that connects to the backyard where a nice size pool, porch and yard is waiting. The house has plenty for room for people to come hang out and lounge around, plenty of seating if you are having a party. The two spare bedrooms, are decorated currently for a toddler and a teenage female (or boy depending on his taste lol) There is a LOT of CC in this and there are wall paints that I have not released but I put them in the download for you :) . You will need ALL the Expansion and Stuff Packs and Game Packs, Im pretty sure I used them all even some floors from the Spooky Stuff pack lol and I did use the new Bowling stuff pack as well, however if you dont have them all it will just replace the things with base game objects! So dont worry about it. Obviously feel free to redecorate the house this is just my style and I dont expect everyone to like it! Tag me if you like, if you use the house I would love to see how it ends up being used in your game! I hope you enjoy!!! (more photos of the house is also included in the download)

Living As A Crossdresser

As I’m sure many of you are aware, I moved into my own house at the start of the year. Obviously I was excited for a whole multitude of reasons (like having my own mortgage… yay… adulting) but one of the biggest was having the freedom to crossdress whenever I like.

Originally, I thought this would simply mean that I wouldn’t have to worry about when I would have a free house and I wouldn’t need to plan my crossdressing photoshoots around whether someone else would be home or not (a lot of photoshoots had to be cancelled because of family members not leaving when they were supposed to…). It wasn’t that I would crossdress more often, just that I wouldn’t need to hide when doing it.

However, over the last week, I’ve been breaking one of my cardinal rules. 

I’ve been crossdressing without makeup.

Fuck me, I didn’t even wear a wig.

I’m very much a go hard or go home kind of girl; I’ve always said that I wouldn’t see a point in crossdressing without doing the makeup and the hair. For me it’s all part of the same package. I wouldn’t apply that rule to anyone else of course, but for me I’ve always either done everything or nothing at all.

So what was the point then? Is it really such a big deal that I wore a dress around the house without bothering with the rest?

For me? Yes. Yes it is.

It might sound a bit backwards, going from looking like a woman (or at least a close enough approximation…) to being a bloke in a dress, but it’s certainly something I needed. 

This wasn’t about being convincing. This was about being comfortable.

I guess that’s the real point of this post; being comfortable. I’ve spent years upon years telling others and myself so many different rules. Wear concealer to hide beard shadow… get a wig the same colour as your natural hair… dress for your body type… All of these different things without remembering the key rule:

Do what makes you feel comfortable and happy.

You want to wear a dress and keep your beard? Do it.

Wearing a bra under your work clothes? Do it.

Wanna walk around your house naked in platform heels? Do it.

We all should do what we’re comfortable with and what makes us happy. For me, that’s about looking as feminine as possible, but sometimes I might just want to wear a skirt because fuck it why not.


DISCLAIMER: Ok so this post got kind of sidetracked… It was actually meant to be about how you can live your regular life as a crossdresser, but you’re all sensible enough to know how to do that anyway.

I did also have the photoshoot just over a week ago (thank you again to everyone who tuned into the Q & A on Instagram!) and I’m going to be posting photos from it on a weekly basis, starting…. NOW

I’m going to post more about this outfit later on in the week, so just consider this a teaser for now!

Until then…

Nothing at Stake - 1

Okay so I’m venturing into uncharted territory here. I saw a post that someone wanted Jughead Smut and I was like, hun I feel u. But how do we get our lil Juggie in that situation, I think I came up with a kind of solution however I have never done any smut. So this is an offering of if you guys like this idea then I will write the smutty stuff that accompanies this piece. Peace out. (P.S: Also this bit is dialogue heavy, I really like writing dialogue, following chapters may not be so speaky(?))
