from a distance for most of you

chuckyzoopa  asked:

From all the known species in the Kahmith universe, which one would be most likely to try to replicate the portal technology for long distance travel, and succeed?

Are you talking about the Jump Gates?

Because that’s a shared technology accessible to everyone.  Granted, they might not understand exactly *how* or *why* the things work, but they can build them for sure.


most of you have known me as winny for quite some time. it’s an alias i’d picked up about eight years ago and it meant a lot to me. recently, a lot of things have changed in who i am / where i’m going in life. i feel sorta ??? outta place with the name now. different interests. a whole lotta personal stigma attached to the name.

so, i’ve made a blog wide attempt to distance myself from the handle. if you could, please refer to me as COSMO. to those of you who have known me as winny for ages, i won’t fault you for still referring to me as such but please make help me adjust to a new chapter in my online life !!

Several people said they would have liked to see more coverage of a measure that Trump signed Thursday that rolled back a last-minute Obama regulation that would have restricted coal mines from dumping debris in nearby streams. At the signing, Trump was joined by coal miners in hard hats.
“If he hadn’t gotten into office, 70,000 miners would have been put out of work,” Patricia Nana, a 42-year-old naturalized citizen from Cameroon. “I saw the ceremony where he signed that bill, giving them their jobs back, and he had miners with their hard hats and everything — you could see how happy they were.”

The regulation actually would have cost relatively few mining jobs and would have created nearly as many new jobs on the regulatory side, according to a government report — an example of the frequent distance between Trump’s rhetoric, which many of his supporters wholeheartedly believe, and verifiable facts.
Melani, for example, gets most of her news from talk radio — “I listen to Herman Cain on my way into work, I have Sean [Hannity] on my way home,” she said — and Fox News.


Trump supporters see a successful president — and are frustrated with critics who don’t

Trump’s base lives in a fantasy world where they get all their news from talk radio and Fox News.

But, you know, we who live on the coasts and in large, diverse, cities are stuck in a bubble.

To all you long distance lovers ❤️

Here’s to you. There is nothing harder than being miles from the one person you wish you were an arms reach from. There’s nothing more difficult than sleeping on FaceTime instead of sleeping in their arms and losing connection when your wifi sucks. There’s nothing harder than squeezing your pillow when you want to be squeezing them. There is nothing worse than going out with your friends and wishing they were sitting right there by your side enjoying the same moments and making the same memories you were. But these sad moments and lonely nights build the strongest relationships. You learn how important communication is and how nothing can stop you from loving the one person who has broken down your walls. you cherish the moments you have and take in the everything that others take advantage of. You build the most successful relationships and one day the distance will no longer be a factor and your love will never leave your arms. keep pushing until you get there and never let the distance win. love is stronger. You’re stronger.

me @ rui before party: it will be an elegant and prestigious party held by six experienced and intelligent hosts, where only the finest intellectuals, artists and business CEOs may gather to share their knowledge and discuss important charity matters. Guests may also attend an auction for buying the most graceful and aesthetically pleasing photographs ever to lay eyes upon, and I thoroughly hope and encourage that you shall be present

me @ rui during party, longcat meowing from it’s position on zen’s face as he sets jumin’s coattail on fire, seven laughing from a distance as he takes a picture using a broken Olymbus X20 of jaehee trying to put the fire out with party punch, all while yoosung is attempting to auction off the photographs with monopoly cash: i can explain  

Marrying your high school sweetheart is, without a doubt, the most romantic thing ever. However, the journey from high school to married life isn’t as easy as it looks. Especially when you go to different colleges and stay apart for a couple of years. If I was given a dollar for every time someone told me long distance relationships are not worth it, I’d be a billionaire. It’s been almost 3 years into my relationship and trust me, they couldn’t be more wrong. A long distance relationship changed me for the better…

1. You learn to be self sufficient

There will be days when you need a hug and you won’t have your partner there to embrace you. You learn to be stronger and you get better at dealing with your own emotions. Most of all, you learn to be your own hero.

2. It helps you develop trust

Keith is the most oblivious of the oblivious
  • Lance: *winking* Hey, are you from Tennessee? Because you're the only ten that I see!
  • Keith: What? Lance, you know I'm Texan. I don't-
  • Allura: Oh, is that one of your Earthen, what did you call it, states?
  • Lance: Yeah, a state of beauty! *winks again, shoots finger guns*
  • Keith: There's no state of beauty, Lance, Tennessee is the Volunteer State.
  • Pidge: *cackling in the distance*

If there’s a single most important part of processing the bird, it’s making sure to get it banded. This red-headed woodpecker is rocking his size 2 USGS federal band as well as three color bands so I can identify and study him from a distance without capturing him again.

It’s important to collect all of your data swiftly, grab photo documentation, and get the bird back to the wild, but what if the animal is stressed and there isn’t time? Just band it. Adding a unique marker means you can get all the data you need later, when the bird is feeling better.

One of the most important parts of being a good field biologist is respecting and closely monitoring the wellbeing of your animals! I only pause for photos and video on healthy birds, and make sure to constantly check for signs of stress (puffing, eye closing, reduced activity).

I’ve never quite felt so much dread
As when our final words were said
The quiet car ride in the dark
Fearing what would be a brand new start

I know that you must move away
When daylight strikes and ends your stay
But shaking hands and streaks of tears
I can’t hold back when you’re not near

You walk me back to my front door
Long distance, we’ve been here before
Behaving like a flickering circuit
Temperamental light; when it’s on, it’s worth it

You are my light
And sometimes that scares you
How you’re on my mind
Until we pull through

But I’ll wait for you from coast to coast
You’ll send me chocolates in the post
That I’ll unwrap when I miss you most
As I kiss the soft temple of your ghost

—  We must goodbye again; it never hurts any less. I’m trying to stop the tears, I’ll embrace the pain through writing for you. // A.S
Can someone explain to me why Logan’s engaged?

Like is there an actual reason why he’s engaged other than to prevent him from fully committing to Rory? Because clearly he does not give a shit about the girl he’s engaged to and clearly the girl has no idea that he’s cheating on her with Rory. Also I know that ASP chose to ignore most of S7, but you’re telling me that the guy who didn’t want to do long distance with Rory because he wanted them to move forward and the guy who wanted all or nothing is okay with having a casual relationship with Rory now? I call bullshit.

Long Distance Relationship

Long distance relationship aren’t always ideal. In fact, they’re really tough. You spend countless of hours just talking through a phone or through a screen. You can’t see the person when you want to or when you most need them. You can’t hug, you can’t hold hands, you can’t kiss. You lose the intimacy in physical sense. But then, your relationship becomes based on each other and nothing else. You learn to communicate, because a long distance relationship without communication is nothing. you learn to trust, because you can’t always see or know everything the person is doing. You learn to sacrifice, because someone’s always going to lose a bit of sleep from the time difference. And lastly, you learn to appreciate.

Don’t get me wrong, I love fitness but this past year I’ve really distanced myself (as in unfollowed) from most popular fitness instagrammers/YouTubers. I love living a healthy and fit life but I’m really not into the whole “I love drinking zero calorie energy drinks, buy x supplement and oh by the way look at my butt and abs” every single day. I’m much more focused on my mental health, doing makes me happiest and nourishing my body.

Merry Christmas from the Unremarkable House! 👽💕🎄

It was my Christmas wish to see Mulder & Scully’s house in the snow. Snow is actually quite rare in this part of Canada, so chalk this one up to a holiday miracle!

I hope these photos conjure visions of Mulder & Scully snuggling next to the fire. And you know Mulder chopped their Christmas tree down right from their own damn lot, that he looked sexy af swinging that axe! 😏

Sending these pics along with a big thank you for everyone that makes this fandom great. I’m so glad to be a part of this awesome community of Philes on Tumblr. All my best wishes for a fantastic holiday season!

Happy Holidays, Tumblr!

Darkness - (Newt Scamander x Reader)

(A/N: Well I decided to combine two prompts into one. :) Here’s an obscurial!reader x newt AND abused!reader x newt fic! I figured they’d go well together.)



You could feel it welling up inside you, the black tendrils of forbidden power slipping in between the cracks of the wall you had erected around your heart. “No, please, no more. Not again.” You whispered, fighting off the mist that was slowly taking over your mind. Feeling your eyes begin to film over, you clawed at your arms in a sort of self-hating desperation. Fighting the whole way, you felt your body begin to dissolve into the deadly red and black mist that hid inside of you.

As if from a great distance, you could hear your father scream, something you had never heard before. Completely detached, you idly reflected on the sound. You had heard him yelling before, most of the time directed at you, but never a scream. Catching glimpses out of the roiling black and red being that was you (you experienced a feeling of mild shock), you could see your father’s face – or what was left of it. Now horribly mangled and disfigured, you watched as if in a dream as his body (no, his corpse you idly corrected yourself), fell to the ground.

A memory shot into your numb brain like a bolt of lightning. A scene of your father beating you flashed into view, replaced with him finding the tattered spell book you had managed to steal and him ripping it apart before his arm raised to hit you – the blackness heaved as if in pain, red lines of rage flashing.

The mist rushed you along out of the house, flowing through the streets like some sort of silent black snake. Darting through and over any obstacles, you reached a park. It was completely unfamiliar, but the mist didn’t seem to care. You were the mist, you realized, and a shudder of revulsion passed through you. As the anger faded, the mist sucked back into you, and you were lying on the dewy ground.

Rolling to lie on your back, you let a dry sob heave out of your chest. You had killed your father. It hit you like a ton of bricks, and you felt bile rise in the back of your throat. It was tearing at your insides again, and you fought to push it back down with all your might. The mist began to eat at your mind again, and your awareness went black.

Finally opening your eyes and snapping back to reality, you found yourself curled in the fetal position, shaking. Slowly unfolding your body, you saw the pale glow of the moon above you. How long had you been here?

Gradually your mind came back to you, and a thought wandered into your consciousness. What just happened to me?

Shrugging it off, you turned to see the silhouette of a man standing in the nearby tree-line. “It’s alright.” His voice was strangely soothing. One of your hands crept up to your face, and when you pulled it back your fingers were coated in a mixture of tears and blood.

“Please don’t hurt me.” You whimpered, and the blackness shifted deep inside you.

“Shhh, shhh, I wouldn’t ever hurt you.” His voice was soft, and you noted that it sounded somehow different than any other you had ever listened to. He took a slow step forward, and the blackness leaped.

“Stop!” Your voice cracked. “I’ll hurt you, just like everyone else.” It was beginning to fog up your mind again, and you clenched your hands into fists. Feeling your long nails digging into your skin, as tendrils of the blackness began curling out of you. You wanted to stop it, but you just couldn’t-


Your eyes flew open, and your mouth opened in a silent gasp. “Newt?” You clutched frantically in the dark for the magizoologist, sweat running down your feverish forehead.

“Right here love.” His arms were around you now, and you sank back into him, eyes closing.


You nodded, pushing the memories of your past to the back of your mind, where they belonged. The blackness was gone. Gone. You fiercely reminded yourself. You were safe now, and he had saved you.
