full on make out

anonymous asked:

oh gosh im so happy your ask is open again! How do the characters of your choice (i just ask that 76 be one of them u0u) react to a new recruit that's even younger than dva? Of course they have combat experience, but it's hard to believe when they look like they should still be in high school!

//Thank you so much Anon!! I’m glad you like this blog so much! I went with Soldier and D.va if that’s okay!

Soldier 76:

  • Omg he goes full dad. Ultimate dad. Makes sure they eat properly and are working out on a healthy basis.
  • Calls them things like ‘kid’ ‘sport’ and ‘youngster’.
  • They eventually slip and call him ‘Dad’. They’re mortified at first, but he just says “Don’t worry about it, soldier. Happens all the time.”
  • He’s secretly really proud and happy.


  • She’s super happy to have someone close to her age in the base!! Everyone is just,,, so old compared to her. So having someone younger to hang out with definitely makes things more fun.
  • She invites them to play games and hang out with her, and they eventually become known as ‘that person that the famous D.va hangs out with’.
  • She might even bribe them into becoming a Youtuber/Twitch streamer themselves! (I’m sorry, Uoutube and Flitch, for the sake of copyright.)
Playing with energy

So now that you’ve got a feel for how energy feedback works for you, let’s do some stuff.

1 clear out distractions and try to sense energy till you’re getting some feed back
2 put your hands (or hand and a something else, or feet, or Whatever works for you) about a fist’s distance from eachother.
3 pool the energy between your hands. Make it brighter-denser-stronger-louder till the space is full
4 play! Can you make it into a donut? Does it stretch out? Can you pull threads from it? Does it float or need something to support it? Can you stick it to a wall?
5 reabsorb the ball of energy, or dismiss it however works for you (I get terrible pins and needles when I try to straight up reabsorb, so I give it to a tree or my house)
6 ground by washing your hands or having something to eat, or hugging a pet or plant
7 tell us how it went!

Have you ever been attacked by other leftists or have they accused you of supporting imperialism for being vocal about the genocide denial on the left. I've had some bad experiences when I discuss the crimes commited by Russia in Chechnya. It's infuriating when some 16 yr old twitter marxist thinks he/she knows everything about the world.

I haven’t been accused of supporting imperialism per se but I’ve been called a liberal for criticizing genocide apologism and Russia, in general. Which, you know, is not that heartbreaking because it’s generally coming from people who have 0 nuance, knowledge of world politics and have never left their state.

Just yesterday I got into an argument on twitter because Ben Norton posted an article authored by Belen Fernandez (on FAIR media) which is full of genocide apologism and makes Serbs out to be these poor victims of Western Intervention and Kosovars and Bosnians into liars that exaggerated their death tolls.

It’s fairly vile that Western Leftists engage and often in genocide apologism and genocide denial and do so in the name of being anti-imperialism and anti-intervention.

I’m a leftist, you know. Im obviously anti-intervention, anti-capitalism, anti-imperialism. My family members were partisans and communists. My world view isn’t shaped alone by Chomsky books and one article on Marxism. It’s shaped by lived experience and history. It’s offensive that there is this attempt amongst certain leftists to re-write history because they view Russia as some anti-imperialist entity…which they’re not..at all. It’s vile that they use real tragedies as a talking point in articles that are full of historical inaccuracies. It’s vile that they attempt to re-write the history I and others lived through just so they can appear as if they are standing on some higher intellectual ground.

In my opinion, a good portion of Western Leftists do not care about those actually impacted by U.S policies. They don’t truly care about children of war, refugees, and people impacted by genocide, drones, war, imperialism…what they care about is being right. Which is why I view their solidarity as bullshit..they spew some words and think that’s enough for a revolution to occur. Meanwhile the rest of us actually impacted by war and interventions are standing alone screaming and not being heard.


I finally got to swim and run on wed evening with Angela. It was a quick pool session cause I got there 30 min before we were gonna run, but I got in the pool and got it done.

She’s getting lessons from someone and he has this bungee cord that you swim with. He attaches it to the dive platform and then you have a belt around your waist and you go full out and see how far you can make it. I made it probably ¾ of the 25yards with it on! Then you stop and it pulls you back. I thought it was fun. Angela said she hates it.

Angela and I each have a spot where we’re faster. I’m a faster swimmer and she’s the faster runner. Luckily we seem pretty even on the bike which makes riding together great. We make a decent training team.

We did our usual route through the town and chatted. We do a nice steady to slow pace for her and slowish for me. She wants to run 10 tomorrow so I’m gonna go with her. She said she usually goes her own pace but will circle back for me as we go. Then we are gonna ride on Sunday.

Oh and I think we found a full marathon to do together after the 70.3. So yea. I haven’t signed up yet but we’ve decided to do it. She’s already talking about a full ironman and I won’t lie I’m starting to think about it too.

Concerning Hobbits (of Color)

Okay it’s been a whole day and I’m still angry about that hobbit casting thing, so let’s lay down some Tolkien canon here.

Fact 1: Per Tolkien, there were originally three races of hobbit. The Stoors were a small group, they were broad and stocky, they grew facial hair, they liked rivers, and their skin color is not specified, so Tolkien probably meant them to be white (but there’s no reason they have to be, since again, not specified). The Fallohides were a tiny group, they were thin, pale and tall, they were bold and good with languages, and they like trees. The Harfoots were the distinct majority, they lived in holes, they had hairy feet, and they were brown. Tolkien is super clear on this. He explicitly calls out Harfoots as having browner skin than other hobbits when describing the races and he uses phrases like “nut-brown skin” and “long brown fingers” when describing specific hobbits to back it up.

Fact 2: Britain planted its ravenous imperial flag firmly in the soil of India three centuries before Tolkien wrote The Hobbit. He knew what a brown person looked like. He would know he was not evoking a slightly darker shade of Caucasian when he said a person had brown skin.

Fact 3: Bilbo, Frodo, and all of their friends are aristocracy. Sam is the only hobbit we ever meet who is an actual laborer. In Tolkien’s time, laborers worked in the sun and middle class and aristocracy stayed inside where there was something resembling temperature control. Apart from Sam and Aragorn, no one in the Fellowship (or Company) ever voluntarily got a sunburn. If Tolkien talks about brown skin he’s talking about brown skin, not a farmer’s tan.

Where does this leave us?

Well, Tolkien says that after colonizing the Shire, the three hobbit races mingled more closely and became one. This leaves us with two options.

Option A: He’s talking about that thing that sci-fi writers sometimes do where “everyone is mixed race.” So all three races would have smeared together into a single uniform color. What color? Mostly Harfoot, aka brown. The “strong strain of Fallohide” in the Tookish and Brandybuck lines means maybe they’re white-passing, but in this scenario all hobbits are brown.

Option B: He’s talking about a more melting-pot scenario where visual racial distinctions still exist but everyone lives side-by-side in a fairly uniform culure. The Tooks/Brandybucks having a “strong strain of Fallohide” means that they are themselves remaining strains of Fallohide, and are straight-up white. Merry, half Took and half Brandybuck, is thus white (possibly part Stoor, given Brandybuck comfort with water); Pippin, half Took and half Banks, is either white or biracial. The Baggins family, sensible owners of the oldest and most venerable hobbit-hole anyone knows of, are blatantly Harfoot, making Bilbo and Frodo (half Took and half Brandybuck respectively) also biracial. Fallohides being exclusively adventurous high-class types, and the Gamgees being staid low-class homebodies with a distrust of moving water, Sam is obviously Harfoot and thus completely brown. (Smeagol, a Stoor, is probably white, but as discussed above, doesn’t have to be.) In this scenario, a minimum of three of five heroic hobbits are various shades of brown, four out of five of them could be, and most background hobbits are brown.

In conclusion, if you think all hobbits are white, you are canonically wrong. If you geek out over Aragorn wearing the Ring of Barahir, rage about Faramir trying to take the Ring, and do not even notice, much less complain, that Sam, Bilbo and Frodo are being erroneously portrayed by white guys, you need to reexamine the focus of your nerdery.
