good people are still out there


“And I want people to feel that even as the show ends, we see Booth and Brennan walking off, and they’re changed people, but you want to have that feeling that yes, they’re still going to be out there, and they’re still going to be solving cases and making the world a better place, even if you’re not going to see them anymore. They’re still joking and laughing in the car, having their differences and having those playful fights they have. You really hope that’s still going on when you don’t see it. It’s certainly bittersweet not to be able to see them again, but just to feel that they’re all in a good place and they’re going to be okay. And you as a viewer are going to be okay, too.” - Michael Peterson

How important is it that I read discworld in order? I own 9 of the books, but they aren't the first 9 books and they aren't a string of 9 books in order (say 21-30). They are just 9 random discworld books. Should I wait until I can read them all in order, or should I dig right in, screw conventional reading orders?

Not very, Terry in fact preffered for people not to start with the first books. He still hadn’t quite figured out where he was going with the series. Until he got to Equal Rites and Mort, and then the series sort of exploded.

Personally I like to tell people to start with “Guards, Guards!”, it’s got well developed character, the world has a feel of being established, and it gives you a good basis for the rest of the City orientated books.

Your mafia au is the purest thing but i can't help but think that Viktor would have been, like, dissolved in acid or drowned in the sea for dating an actual cop so (and then they'll kill Yuuri too, you know) Yup, that's how actual mafia works and it's fucking awful! They kill people and hide their copses in cement pillars! And they kidnap and slaughter innocents too! 4 example., when my mom was studying in Palermo (late '80s) there were people driving with actual guns pointed out on the street

Haha, true enough! XD
It’s true Mafia’s are pretty serious business, but, this is a work of fiction and all :3
Of course Victor’s hands aren’t really clean, as will be seen in the future installments, but he’s still a good guy who’s silly and outgoing :D
All those in Victor’s mafia are extremely loyal to him, so, they don’t exactly understand why he’s getting involved with a cop, but, they aren’t really gonna do anything about, they know how Victor is X3

It takes so much strength to be good. It takes so much strength to be kind.

I don’t like what Shigeo has had to go through in this arc. I will never like it. But the fact that he has, and the fact that - with a little bit of help - he’s managed to come out of the other side still clinging to his goodness and his kindness…

Mogami was wrong, you see?

Oh, it doesn’t take strength at all to fall to the anger and fear and hate. It’s so easy, really.

What takes strength and courage and love is climbing out. What takes strength is living and believing in something good, even when the world wants you to think that it doesn’t exist.

That’s why there are no worthless people.

It took me ten years to realize that.

…oh, Shigeo.

anonymous asked:

I think that's disgusting. Do you want to know their urls? I can make a post to warn others.

Or, alternatively, here’s another fun option: leave them alone. Block them to avoid the content, if there’s any around, and leave them be.

They’re shipping. Fictional characters.
It’s not something that warrants the action of some kind of dumb Tumblr vigilante. It’s no good reason to harass anybody. Leave call-out posts for serious issues that cause actual harm to real people, because dumb crap like this is one of the reasons why fewer and fewer people take them seriously.
Honestly, you sound beyond ridiculous. Get out of your room, smell the flowers, worry about real problems. And I hope you’re really, really young. In which case there is still hope you’ll grow out of it.

it totally makes 0 sense to say that the balloon squad will be the next penetrators. like the only thing we know about them (to my knowledge) is that they give vilde a bunch of balloons. would the penetrators give vilde balloons??? probably not. from what we've seen, it makes much more sense to assume they'll be genuinely good guys!!!


LITERALLY??? That’s ALL we’ve seen of them! And probably that one pic of them on Facebook. That’s ALL we’ve seen of The Balloon Squad as characters. The rest of it all is just the actors hanging out together! 

LIKE, THEY LITERALLY HAVE BALLOONS IN THEIR HANDS THAT THEY GIVE TO VILDE. I’M?????? still baffled as to how they’re seen as “bad people”?

ME:A Ending (opinions, no spoilers)

I’m actually crying (okay not really but I’m super emotional still). Just finished Mass Effects main mission and in all honesty and non-spoiler opinion its beautiful, well done and just… amazing?

For all the flaws that, yes, we know about, it’s honestly such a good and beautiful game. While I hate the way m/m was treated, while I understand that there was a lot that could have been improved on and while at some points it still needs work this was an amazing game with a beautiful story and incredible end. Honestly, the best ending to a bioware game in quite some time in my opinion. For the fun, difficulty of the final battle, the way everything is brought together, the drama of it, the epicness of the sequences. The scenery was stunning, the shots breathtaking and the character interaction was heartwarming.

This gives me a lot of hope for the future of the game too. There’s so much they can build on in Andromeda, so many places they can go should they choose. Hopefully (and I say this strongly since I love them) with the Ryders, but even without them, this really does open up the franchise.

I haven’t had such a feeling playing a game since… I don’t even know when. It was just so perfectly overwhelming.

I’m glad. Really glad. I know not everyone feels the same, everyone is different, but the ending really was a huge high point. While I was enjoying the game, this just solidified for me how amazing it is and how strong the potential for the next game is.

It means so much to me that you want to

Kady is the only one still pursuing Reynard. Julia is too unstable. And Penny has just been instated as Librarian. And it turns out Librarians rather kill themselves than let people get to books that can end worlds. Or gods. They are not going to give it to her. So time for another heist?

Also Josh is back and he puts all the other plots into action.

He finds a note about FU fighters planning to kill Eliot and Margo again. And Margo was so happy to have Eliot on her bloodthirsty team but he’s no good at destroying the opposition - he’s either to nice or too killy. Margo on the other hand is devious. Doing what’s needed is Margo’s job even if the consequences are devastating.

Like when Fen is thinking she is going crazy seeing figures at every corner. But Margo comes clean that those are just Faries waiting to take her child away. Eliot still doesn’t know so he only cares about his poll ratings and wedding.

Josh also feeds Quentin a reality travel cake and Quentin finds Julia’s shade. Well, finds out it still exists in another world. And he finds Julia to tell her there is still hope.

Julia used to be Dean Fogg. The other 39 times out of the loop. Perfect student. His discipline. But now she isn’t even in Brakebills. So he lets her out. But she isolates herself. She still remembers what it takes to be a good person even though she doesn’t feel it any more so she knows how much she screwed up. So when Quentin tells her shade still exists she wants it back.

And then Alice from another loop, the only survivor of The Beast tells them they only need to go to Underworld. And to do that they only need to find a Dragon.

How do you know those people haven't seen ghost in the shell?

well there’s this popular post going around (which had some good points that i agree with about the new movie) and people are freaking out. they think the moviemakers made a new complicated narrative so that a japanese person can believably look like scarlet johanson. well not really. ((minor spoiler i guess)) motoko is a person whose brain was harvested and planted on a robot body. that’s why its called ghost in the shell. the ghost is motoko and the shell is the robot body. so yeah theres no new narrative they only made the robot scarlet johanson

For Ethan

I just got done watching a few of Ethan’s words expressed in the videos made my day a little bit brighter. I wanted to write this to express positive thoughts I wanted to say to him in case he ever needs it.

The first thing you always have to remember is comparing yourself often leads to you feeling like you aren’t good enough, that there are people out there that extend your limits which is not true. You are your own person, You did not come here for a purpose or a mission. The only mission you go on is to pursue what makes you happy. Ethan, from how long I’ve known him, is a very ambitious dude. I have admired his work ethic when he used to be a manager and still made videos and now I have admired him even more now that he is in LA working on his channel while editing and traveling to conventions to meet fans. Not going to college cause he wanted to work harder on the channel and to pursue his dream and make it a reality. It’s slowly coming true and I couldn’t be more proud of him. He’s come so far and has worked so damn hard to get where he is at now. By going on the path he wanted to take, it’s gotten him to experience new opportunities and achieve so much. You don’t need to go on the “basic route” in order to follow a dream and Ethan has proved that.

I watch him because he has been an inspiration to me to keep pursuing what I love most. There’s a video entitled “You Can Do This” where Ethan talks about how you should go for your dreams no matter what people say and no matter how hard it takes to get there. My goals is to hopefully become a graphic designer, creating digital drawings, sketches, logos that can help companies. I have started a YouTube channel and have been making speed paint videos weekly. I attend a technical high school that teaches you while you learn the common studies to pursue your dream, your goal. I was always interested in graphic designing, audio, video editing, lighting and, thankfully, I found the shop for me. It is called Design and Visual and its a multi-media shop. For the past 3 years, I have been taught how to create videos in Premiere, create logo designs in Illustrator, the basics of Photoshop and so much more.

This was a video where Ethan said something that really struck me.

“You can do this. Don’t let others tell you what you can and cannot do. If you want something bad enough and you work as hard as you possibly can, you CAN achieve what you want to achieve. Don’t let things like this slip away.”

There was a lyric from a song that I know because of Ethan. The lyric goes as follows:

“It’s tough but it’s gotta be somebody so why not you?”

This got to me because it’s a lyric and a song that meant a lot to Ethan and as I listened to the song in my own time, I started to see how this inspired him. He told us about this song when he just hit 200k and now he is just about at 300k.

I had the pleasure to talk to Ethan at PAX East this year and It was very humbling to have that minute to speak to him. You were so kind to me and my friend Alyssa for the short time we had. I wish you a very big and bright future, Ethan. You are gonna be the best you can ever be. Know that I believe in you as much as you believe in me. I hope these words cheer you up if you ever doubt yourself or feel down. I also heard you were sick so feel better and eat some soup <3

anonymous asked:

I never studied any of this and I'm a pure atheist (not even agnostic), so it may come out as totally stupid, but why the hell would people follow a religion where you are automatically damned/saved and none of your acts matter? Like why trying to be a good person? You could go and murdering your family, if you're on the "saved" list, you can still go to heaven, bc God said so?

well if you murder your family and end up in jail according to calvinism 101 TM then you were damned all along and the previous impression that you weren’t was a fake. same as if you lose all your money or become poor or something like that because it’s seen as a sign of ‘oh we thought God blessed you but it really wasn’t true’, which is why people growing in that mindset or in a culture based on that mindset are terrified of becoming poor or losing their wealth and see poor people as OMG YOU’RE SO LAZY and if you were rich and now you’re poor the reply is you should have worked harder. like the concept that shit that’s not under your control happens and it doesn’t bear on your worth as a person doesn’t exist because your wealth/worth is tied to your salvation so if you lose it then you weren’t deserving in the first place if it makes the entire thing clearer. (tbh I find it abhorrent but)

on your first question: I’ve been asking myself the same thing since I learned what calvinism was about and I still have no fucking clue. if you’re in the wealthy side then well it’s basically saying that you’re going to heaven SO, if you’re not… dunno. not knowing any better? people then want to succeed so bad they put more effort into it to prove themselves that they aren’t damned? because count that the idea is ‘if you work hard blah blah blah and you’re successful THEN you can see that you’re saved’ so in theory you can find out through hard work and so on but honestly I’m pure atheist same as you so to me this whole mindset is pure crap. like, I can understand a religion where it says if you’re good you go up and if you’re bad you go down but that’s up to you and your decisions - I wouldn’t follow it but I get the appeal. one where it said well WE’RE ALL DAMNED ANYWAY or SOME ARE SAVED AND SOME ARE NOT BECAUSE SOMEONE ELSE MORE POWERFUL DECIDED IT just pisses me off and it’s not even said anywhere in the scriptures soooo. dunno man. my capacity to empathize with why you’d be religious draws the line at predestination

Let’s hear it for lurkers

So apparently round umpty-zillion of “people are killing fandom by not commenting” is going around, and I’ve seen a few posts trashing people for lurking/viewing/reading instead of actively participating.

My journal and my fic has always been a lurker-friendly zone. I think lurkers are great and people can fight me on this. Here’s why:

We all started out as lurkers. Or at least most of us did. Come on. I’m sure some people out there must’ve jumped into fandom with both feet and started writing and commenting right away, and good for you if you did! But I sure didn’t. I lurked for YEARS. And even now, though I’ve been in fandom since before Y2K, whenever I get into a new fandom or a new social media platform, I still lurk. I hang out around the fringes for awhile to get a feeling for the place before starting to participate. Back in the mailing list/bulletin board days, it was usually recommended that people do that on purpose, watch and listen and learn the local lingo and social rules before diving in. So you know what? You are not doing anything wrong and you are not doing anything that most of the people you see out there commenting and creating and reccing things haven’t done themselves.

We all have lurker days, weeks, months …. Nobody is 100% “on” all the time. Participating in fandom (commenting, reccing, creating content, and so forth) is WORK. It may be fun work, but it still takes effort! Even if you’re sometimes very active in fandom, then you’ll have life fall on your head or the brain weasels flare up, and you won’t have the time and energy to give. Don’t feel guilty about not being able to give fandom your extra spoons. No one in fandom has a right to demand a single spoon from you that you don’t want to give.

Some of today’s lurkers may be your friends tomorrow. How do I know this? Because I’ve made friends with some of them myself! I’ve had people delurk in my comments to say hi after YEARS of reading my fanfic without saying a word. Which I am totally okay with, by the way. And some of these people are good friends today.

So, in conclusion:

  • It is okay to feel too shy to come out of lurkerhood in fandom until you feel more comfortable there. It is fine, in fact, if you never do.
  • It is okay to be too busy and have too few spoons to comment or create stuff. You still have a perfect right to be in fandom and read and reblog whatever you want.
  • It is okay if you meant to comment on that fic or go back and press the kudos button but never got around to it.
  • It is okay if you have too many accounts already and don’t want to create a new one just to comment/participate on a social media platform. 
  • It is okay if your personal situation (a stalker ex, controlling parents) makes it unsafe for you to create an account or comment on things.
  • It is okay if you can’t or don’t want to comment or do any of the other things that constitute non-lurkerhood, and you don’t owe anyone an explanation for why.
Tumblr likes wrestling?

Yes, Tumblr likes wrestling. 

To the casual channel-flipper, professional wrestling might look like base, unsophisticated brawling. If you stick around and pay attention, you’ll find out that it’s a flamboyant, convoluted opera. Also it makes for some truly excellent GIFs. Here are some wrestling Tumblrs:

You know what’s sad? Even if someone curses out Jackson and hates on him, he’d probably still wish that person the best for his/her life and family. He’s just that kind of genuinely good person. 

It’s terrible that there are people who would say disgusting things about anyone who is down and sick. It’s even worse that those people would do it to such a sweet and beautiful person.

listen, i love jack ‘it’s only minus ten out i can wear shorts out’ zimmermann as much as everyone else but as anyone who lives in a cold place can tell you, we get VERY worried about people from warm places who clearly Do Not Understand How To Winter. 

and while bitty is very good at bundling up he clearly doesn’t know what to wear out (he wouldn’t have to wear so many layers if he had good winter clothes after all) and it is Very Upsetting to jack. so every single time bitty visits jack starting from october, jack has another piece of high quality winter clothing waiting for him, whether it be double layered mittens, wool-lined boots, or a coat that feels like duvet. 

so even though bitty still complains bitterly about the winter and (more amusedly) about jack’s wintery mother hen tendencies (”jack it’s the third of october, i don’t need woolen socks”) he’s at least warm which makes jack’s heart as toasty as bitty’s toes.

pairing: reader x park jimin

summary: park jimin was famous for being a fratboy, a cutie with a booty, and for being a pain in the ass. yet, somehow, you still ended up in his bed. 

genre/count: smut and fluff [ nc-17 ]   |   7.8k words

a/n: i started writing this at work and enjoyed it way too much :’)

Jimin liked to think himself easygoing. He could sweet talk anyone, worm his way into people’s lives and fit himself all snug in their hearts. It was just a charm of his, he supposed. He wasn’t too judgmental or strict, liked to be the good cop to everyone’s bad cop (especially Yoongi in the frat).

But there was something about you that just irritated the fuck out of him. It wasn’t as if you were unpleasant, no. You were pleasant to everyone except him. You were always so effortlessly fucking gorgeous. You never looked snobby or pretentious and he would do you ten out of ten. So he wasn’t quite sure what it was that nagged at the back of his mind about you.

It was during one of his fraternity’s house parties, Hoseok’s this time because he had just gotten the opportunity to perform his choreography in the department’s annual showcase, hence making it a good cause to celebrate. Jimin had entered, tipsy from the pre-game at Taehyung’s place with a handful of new pledges and Taehyung had announced his entrance as he always did. “Your party god and savior, Kim Taehyung, is finally here!” A few of the guys who were all too familiar with his antics waved him off. Jimin just laughed.

It was a little over midnight when Jimin found the music a little too loud, so he staggered over to the kitchen in search of a glass of water to relieve the dryness in the back of his throat. He’s found a few potential girls he could hook up with tonight but none he was too interested in.

However, the sight of another figure halted his footsteps. You stood there nursing your own drink, clad in the shortest pair of leather shorts that curved around your ass nicely, a top that was tantalizing enough to have his dick twitching in his pants but elegant enough to keep it classy. Not to mention that choker that wrapped around your neck. Fuck. You were laughing with a new pledge from his frat and he could already tell that the kid was interested but he couldn’t help the asshole in him when it came to you.
