god i need to start working

nicki and bey really tryna start a fucking militia of supercharged black girls or something bc i swear to the living GOD every time one of them drops something i start making plans to better my life like “ooh i need to register for classes and moisturize my hair and drink more water and start working out and eat more dark leafy greens”


OH MY GOD ok so dearsheroozle was sick and requested a Sweaty Engineering!Asami and Flustered!Korra drawing and I as usual made this way harder and more complicated than it needed to be and didn’t plan it out very well at all and had to just sort of make it work and anyway here it is 


Cleaned my room to get back at my parents.

I had a long day today because I’ve been busy studying for AP exams, my permit test, and a few other tests for my classes at school, on top of my regular homework. I was busy doing schoolwork from the time I got home after school until about 10:30, when I decided to hit the hay. A few minutes after I went to bed, I heard my mom come upstairs and I didn’t feel like talking so I pretended to be asleep. As she walked past my room, I heard her stop and mumble “oh my God…” My room was messy because I hadn’t exactly had time to clean it.

She went to her room and started complaining to my dad about how lazy I am. He checked to see how messy my room was, then made some comment to my mom about how I need to get a job so I’ll learn responsibility and hard work. My mom said she was going to take my phone and my laptop tomorrow after school until I cleaned my room.

My parents act like I don’t have anything going on in my life, but I’m currently at a 3.9 gpa and I’m taking three AP classes next year. I’ve got a lot to worry about at the moment.

So after my parents went to bed, I silently cleaned my room. It’s cleaner now than it has been in months. My mom won’t be able to punish me for having a messy room and she’ll probably reconsider how she talks about me when she thinks I’m not listening.

Louise, congratulations!
5 years ago a lovely beautiful-looking lady decided to start a Youtube Channel… and became inspiration for all her fans.
No matter what size you are, no matter how you look, smile, be positive, be yourself and you will look beautiful! That’s the teaching you have left your sprinklerinos. Oh, Louise, you have helped so much people you can’t even imagine. Be proud of your work.
Matt and Darcy love you, everybody in the Youtube community love you and we, sprinklerinos, love you.

Oh, and, Louise, thank you for creating such a nice community. Your sprinklerino fans are really kind and befriending some of them is one of the things which have made me happier lately. Thank you, Louise - that’s a personal thank you, yup, hehe.

We love you.
Keep sparkling!

ICYMI: A woman in Baltimore received this super weird and homophobic note after decorating her yard with rainbow lights and the words “love” and “ohana” in honor of Pride month. The note reads:

“Your yard is becoming Relentlessly Gay! Myself and Others in the neighborhood ask that you Tone It Down. This is a Christian area and there are Children. Keep it up and I will be Forced to call the Police on You! Your kind need to have Respect for GOD.” -A Concerned Home Owner. 

The homeowner, Julie Baker, has responded by creating a GoFundMe page asking for supporters to help make her home even more relentlessly gay:

I am starting this fundraiser so I can work to make my Home even More “relentlessly gay”  If we go high enough, I will see if I can get a Rainbow Roof!

Because my invisible relentlessly gay rainbow dragon should live up there in style!

Put simply, I am a widow and the mother of four children, my youngest in high school and I WILL NOT Relent to Hatred. Instead, I will battle it with whimsy and beauty and laughter and love, wrapped around my home, yard and family!!!

You can’t make this stuff up. 

The thing is.

The thing is, Nico loves Will, really, he does. He loves how Will can distinguish the good shadows from the bad, how he can recognize when he needs to reach out and pluck Nico from all his sacred spaces that have turned sour and solder him back together particle by particle, seeping stability and permanence into him simply by being there.

Nico loves how malleable Will is, how the quietly sturdy body beside him melts in the half light behind closed doors, easily changing shape under Nico’s practiced hands, always leaving the same sting on the underside of his tongue but flitting from rough to smooth and back again, giving Nico what he knows he needs.

Nico loves Will, and he loves how his sun’s rays bend and arc and curve wonderfully around Nico, creating glorious hollows for him to inhabit, easy as breathing.

Nico loves Will for his seeming-bonelessness that’s somehow, inexplicably, directed at Nico, but.


But there are nights, long, drawn-out evenings where Nico has whatever show is languishing on the television muted, where he knows he should get into bed before the aching tiredness pins him to the couch, where he’s just beginning to think about getting up when the apartment door bangs open like a shot and Nico doesn’t even have to count the seconds between the erratic footsteps to know it’s Will back from trauma work.

It’s Will back from trauma work, and Nico’s fatigue evaporates in the face of the look Will’s giving him that has his shadow meticulously stripping down. Nico doesn’t have to loop his arms around Will’s neck to know his pulse is a frantic staccato he can’t hope to match, but Nico does it anyway, he doesn’t have to open Will’s vein to taste the adrenaline tripping thunderously along in Will’s bloodstream. Instead Nico bites along the inside of Will’s wrist and smiles wickedly, because Will’s breathing is out of place for a dreary Thursday evening but is protocol under the bright lights of the hospital Will has just come from, of the tripping, roaring movement of the hospital Will is having trouble shaking off just now, where blood is crashing wondrously inside people if they’re lucky, and outside them if the doctors aren’t finished yet. Nico knows Will is itching, stuttering, gasping, going, needing an outlet, an outlet, an outlet, and Nico is more than willing to offer himself to Will’s flare, always ready to give over lighter fluid to keep Will’s spark alight. Will has spent hours desperately sewing people together, and Nico will always volunteer to be the one he rips apart afterwards, when his hands still thrum with energy and his fingers can’t pick up the needle but can scrabble for purchase against Nico’s skin. Nico takes a delicious thrill in the way Will absolutely shatters him from the inside out. On nights like these, Will is rigid and unyielding and forces Nico to crack where he can’t bend any further, and Nico can give over to this, really, he can, because on the one hand, it’s positively brilliant, and on the other, Will spins drippy sunshine for Nico to play with on his off days. Nico can manage to crack temporarily in two when Will needs to break something.


I just have this headcanon that sometimes Will comes back from the trauma center with a lot of excess energy, and so get rid of it he holds Nico down and fucks him, which Nico absolutely adores.

This is the closest I’ve come to genuine smut, oh my god.



I desperately need help

My name is V. My partner and I are trans, disabled, and homeless.

I work as a server at IHOP but school has just started and my boss cut my hours, so tips AND my paychecks are small. My partner just got a job, but it will be several weeks until they get a paycheck and even more until we get enough together to get indoors.

We have a 2 year old son that we have hardly been able to see in several weeks because we have no food and it’s too cold for him to sleep at night. We have no resources and nobody who is willing or able to help us, and winter is fast approaching. We are desperate. I am desperate. I am BEGGING. We need to get funds together to get an apartment before the winter.

I can’t stress this enough. We NEED to be indoors before winter, and ideally, we should be indoors before October. We live in Alaska and winter/fall is bitterly cold and miserable, especially at night, obviously. It’s already dropping below 50 at night. We sleep under 3 thick blankets and in layers and we are still freezing.

Our goal is to try and get $2000 together, for deposit and first months rent. The cost of living here is very high and we need at least that much to have any guarantee of getting a place before winter. My paypal is undeadzombieman@yahoo.com. Please, please donate and/or signal boost this. Thank you for reading.



Westboro Baptist Church has edited my artwork and posted it to Twitter.

So earlier this year a children’s book I worked on about acceptance in couples came out, Square Zair Pair.  The author, who is a gay man, was planning a reading in the Castro district when Westboro started sending him hateful messages and stated their plans to protest the book reading!

This, however, is on a whole different level.  I laughed so hard I started crying, because these guys are SO threatened by genderless purple creatures that they needed to use them to spread hate.

WELL, I’ll do the opposite and spread word of this adorable book, instead :)

The e-book is actually FREE on Amazon if you have unlimited Kindle seevice!  And you can also order a hard copy there if you’d like.

Counter protest on February 6th in the Castro!!
I won’t be there.  Couldn’t afford the plane ticket :3
But the author, Jase, will be, and he’s a FANTASTIC man!


Please reblog and share!  There’s no better way to protest hate than to share love :D!

anonymous asked:

Hey do you have any soul-mate fanfics for olicity? I've read yours God knows how many times, I'm just on a soul-mate binge at the moment, I need all the soul-mate fics :')

Thank you, anon! I’m finally getting around to the rec questions. I’m assuming you’ve read both my soulmate stories - Free Fall and Of Souls and Mates.

Styx Water

The river Styx is one of five rivers that runs through the domain of Hades. It is the river of hate, running parallel to Phlegethon through the underworld. Styx was also a Goddess who was among the first to aid Zues in overthrowing the Titans, and so She was giving the honor of any oath sworn upon Her name being unbreakable for the Gods. In legend, bathing in the river Styx granted invincibility >see Achilles myth< This is also the river

After I posted up my description for making Lethe Water, I thought I’d start working on writing down the other four rivers. So, here’s how I make Styx Water:

*Not For Ingestion*

  • Rust
  • Glass or mirror chunks (be careful not to cut yourself)
  • Blood (yours, someone elses, blood from the butcher, whatever. If you’re using your or someone elses blood, you only need a few drops. Be safe an sanitary in drawing blood!)
  • Some form of clear alcohol (I.E. everclear, rubbing alcohol, ect)

Rust is something rotting. This is what hate does to things, it rots them, destroys them, makes them useless.

Glass is pain, and if you use mirror it can also be about reflection. It can be about distorted images (misunderstandings), hating others for things you see in yourself, introspection, ect…

Blood is to tie it to the underworld. Like in lethe water, you could use bones, but since hate causes blood shed, the use of blood is very important for me.

Add the rust, mirror chunks, and a few drops of blood (or if you’re using blood from the butchers add however much you want to color) to your alcohol. Let it set and charge for three nights. The night before the new moon, the new moon, and the night after. Strain out the solid bits, store in a dark bottle, and you’re good to go. 

Styx water can be used in repulsion spells, curses, protection spells, and probably a bunch more things too.

And here are the links for all five rivers (current post included)

  • Acheron-River of Woe (personally associated with Air)
  • Cocytus-River of Wailing (personally associated with Earth)
  • Lethe-River of Forgetfulness (personally associated with Water)
  • Phlegethon-River of Fire (personally associated with Fire)
  • Styx-River of Hate (personally associated with Spirit)

I personally think the video shoot today was for the tour screens. Here’s why:

1. It was a one day shoot which music videos never are

2. If they were filming a music video then all the fans would have been able to hear the music playing and reporting on which song it was which no one has

3. A third/fourth single hasn’t even been announced yet

4. The tour starts in a month.. They need to film the screens at some point

5. They just finished with Midnight Memories and it seems a bit early to be working on a summer single

6. Ben didn’t say it was a music video. He said it was a video.

7. God I hope it’s not a music video looking like that….

“I feel like I’m living in paradise.”
“What makes you feel like this?”
“Are you always happy?”
“Sometimes it’s difficult, but you have to talk to God every day. First you talk to him like you talk to a grandfather or a general in the army. When you gain more confidence, you can start talking to him like he’s your friend. You can say, ‘God, I need money for my family, and you know how to do everything. I will put some, and you will add the rest.”
“Does it work?”
“Yes. Sometimes you get more opportunities, and sometimes you even find money on the street.”


Work in progress photos of an upcoming armor set to be tossed onto my etsy shop.  Still need to finish adding all the hardware and then leather straps and paint! 

Photos courtesy of coelasquid who came over so we can get started on comic con plans. >:) 6 months in advance, we better get this stuff done haha I’m determined not to have a last-minute costume this year. (This armor has nothing to do with it.)

Dragonage fans, when I finish my Cole hat, I will be offering them as well. ;) 


I don’t think you guys realize that Calypso isn’t /cursed/ to fall in love with the people who land on her island. She usually just falls in love with them, after they spend weeks there, and the boat doesn’t show up /because/ she loves them. It shows up when they need to leave, and /if/ she loves them.

I think Rick portrayed Leo and Calypso’s relationship like so: She was tired of the curse, and the fates, and didn’t want to bother. She wanted Leo off her island. The gods had broke their oath.

And then she wanted to be friends, because he’s an okay guy. So try started to work together. And that guy who you don’t like but reveals the little quirks about him, the one you can’t help but crush on, was Leo for her. They fixed things together, they ate together. And then she fell in love with a grease covered, sarcastic, sometimes an asshole, brave, mechanic who was determined to help his friends, and help her along the way.

She fell for him and he for her and neither of them changed. They fell in love, that’s it.

And he promised to get her off that island, not because he loved her, not because she returned his affections, but because she’s trapped there. And he doesn’t find it fair, so he’s fixing it.

He may have found a woman, but he also found a promise. Leo has no fixed point, no reason to truly save the world. (Other than, ya know, saving the world.) But what after that? They all have somewhere or something to go to.

He changed, he’s hardened, because now he has a goal. A North Star.

The romance of it all, the beauty of first love and last love, of impossible promises is a plus.

So, yeah. :)
