good choices though

palewolfchild  asked:

How do you throw throwing knives properly?

well, first off you need a good throwing knife. knives are like people: most of them are good for one thing but not for others, like steve with throwing shields and steve with applying basic common sense. or like thor with electrocuting things and eating spicy foods. or clint with shooting arrows and basically any other facet of human life. 

anyway, a good throwing knife will be quite sharp on the point but blunted along the sides–sticks in the target but doesn’t cut your hands. the point and blade should be pretty thick, and the fewer perforations in the blade the better. throwing knives have to withstand a hard impact without breaking, so you want a decent quality knife, and the heavier it is (within limits) the less force you’ll need on your throw. 

you’ll want a good target to learn with, something big and soft enough that you’ll hit it and that your knife will embed so you know where you hit, but not so soft the knives fall out. deadpool may volunteer for this job. do not take him up on it. the commentary is not worth it.

grip the tip of the knife vertically between the pad of your thumb and the side of your index fingers. hold it firmly enough that it won’t slide in your grip but not too hard. 

stand with the foot on the side of your throwing hand pointed at your target, spine straight. start close to the target (another reason not to use deadpool–blood splatters farther than you think) and work your way back as you figure things out. the biggest part is learning to throw with enough force and rotation so the pointy end sticks in your target. it’ll take time, and there’s really no shortcut for just putting in the practice hours. 

if this does not work out for you, i recommend grenades for all your low-accuracy distance combat needs.

Killua, how would you react if Alluka started dating someone?

I’m gonna be the most supportive brother I can!! Of course, she’s always been supportive of me and tolerates all the queer things I do, so it only makes sense! 

But it doesn’t mean I won’t step in if she asks me to. :)

Lancelot & Guinevere + guilt, desire and rage
— Guinevere: A Medieval Romance, Lavinia Collins 

‘Where the Streets Have No Name’ came together in a bit of a rush the evening before we were due to start recording again…I was recording onto a four-track tape machine, working alone, sequencing keyboards to the drum machine.  I was starting to get desperate and thinking about the next tour.  I imagined being at a U2 show and tried to dream-up what I would want to hear.  It was my attempt to conjure up the ultimate U2 live-song.  It was a strange feeling when I finished the rough mix, because I thought I had just come up with the most amazing guitar part and song of my life, but I was totally alone in a big house with no one to share it with.  I remember listening to the complete silence of the house for a few seconds after the music had stopped and then doing a dance around the room punching the air.  Then I went home.

The Edge, U2 by U2

lmao that is the most adorable thing I have ever heard I love Edge so much

he is totally my spirit animal

also did this dude literally just spontaneously decide one evening “I’m going to write the best live song ever, like, THE quintessential song that will define U2 concerts forever henceforth,” and then just like…sat down and…did that??? in one night??? how

like damn son, if Edge had been around Italy in whatever BC, Rome WOULD have been built in a day

Okay; full disclosure: my single, solitary, world-weary emotion has abandoned me for parts unknown, so I won’t lie and claim to have had much in the way of Feelings™ about the episode, but one thing really hit home. 

Most of the season, the show has ignored or skirted around the true horror of what the British Men of Letters do to maintain peace. Finally, in this episode, Sam started asking questions about whether they killed even the creatures who showed no inclination to harm others. (Thank goodness, too. Sam is always the first and loudest voice in defense of people who cannot defend themselves, and I’ve been waiting for that conversation for a long time now.) That was surprising enough, but then the whole plot of the episode hammered it home:

In attempting to eradicate all monsters, the BMoL have done the opposite. Alarmingly creepy wierd!wolf certainly wasn’t a pleasant character, but his story and his motivations made a sick sort of sense: Mick and his people took part in slaughtering a huge pack that never harmed humans, and the response of the survivor was to lash out and hurt people (something he implied his pack had never done) in a twisted attempt to “right” that wrong. The BMoL are, by way of their indiscriminate violence against the guilty and the innocent, creating the very thing they’re trying to stop.

Poor Zack had a panic attack :( I know because that’s exactly what mine used to be like. And there was one in particular that was pretty similar to the situation in this chapter–I was in a loud, crowded bar, but my friends saw I was getting overwhelmed and helped me out. And the exhausted feeling after is so true, you feel like you’ve run a marathon.

Between this special moment and Zig coming out as bi (which represents a huge milestone for him, trusting all his friends enough to bring it up) this has been, honestly, one of my favourite Freshman chapters yet. The storytelling was streamlined and tactful without being heavy-handed. It felt so real!!

Another great episode, guys!! 

Wynonna Earp. Hogwarts AU.

Because I’m Trash. Also, Wynonna, that skirt is NOT school uniform. 

I’m trying a new style and I think I like it. I also wasn’t sure which house dolls would be in? I think Ravenclaw is a good choice, though. Also it was between Hufflepuff and Gryffindor for Nicole, but for every other person I was pretty sure. (Waverly is a Ravenclaw, fight me on this). 

Yes, Nicole is on the Quidditch team (and we’re all super proud of her). 

But i love this and I’m proud. Also super happy about season 3.

The ap chem exam alternated between giving me everything i could have wanted and giving me the topics i prayed not to see that test was a roller coaster jeez

More for the Killing Stalking/Hannibal AU.

Hey guys, interrupting your dash for a brief moment to tell you about a fantastic writer that y’all should definitely follow?

@drdanwrites is a great writer, superb, fantastic, amazing. Her writings blow me away all the time. If you haven’t yet, you should check out the Cedric Diggory story she wrote. If you love Cedric, you’ll love it. I assure you. She’s the best writer for him that I’ve found.

And if Newt’s more your preference (bc, honestly, who doesn’t adore that sweetheart?), she has a quickly growing list of stories including him. I linked the masterlist so it’s easy to find her stories (I recommend the Magical Office. Heartwarming romance and hilarious antics. It quickly became my fave series on here).

She’s also taking Requests, so if you have any, you should totally send her some! Or just stop by to tell her how awesome her writing is bc she deserves all the compliments.

I cannot be the only person who thinks that Matthew Daddario (who has gained popularity due to his latest casting as Alec Lightwood on the TV series Shadowhunters), would be a good cast choice for Patch Cipriano from the Hush Hush book series by Becca Fitzpatrick.
