he is a gift to social media

Does Ryan Ross hate his fans?

So in response to an ask I got, I thought I’d make a detailed post 

First of all I want to stress the fact that Ryan Ross is a shy, awkward guy. Naturally, people tend to compare him to Brendon. But while Brendon is excitable and wild, Ryan’s quiet and introverted. That’s not a bad thing, it’s just their personalities.

Post split, a fan sent him flowers on his birthday. When she met him after a TYV concert and asked him if he got them:

His reaction when a fan gave him a gift basket:

LJ era excerpts showing how he appreciates fans’ art even if they aren’t confident about it. More recently he’s also appreciated fan art on ig 

An Afysco era discussion, basically the same topic

He’s always pretty polite and respectful

  • Recently Z Berg talked about how he’s internet shy. So he’s not too active on social media.(x)
  • Another very important point is that his ex manager, sh**e used to post nasty shit from Ryan’s accounts, posing as Ryan, which confused and hurt fans.(x)
  • Sometimes, his sarcasm can be misinterpreted, but trust me he’s just trying to be sassy
  • Ryan used to feel bad about not being able to sign everyone’s stuff. Even after he’s been musically inactive I’ve never heard of him denying a fan a photo
  • Ryan has said he doesn’t mind fans illegally downloading his music for free.
  • That story about how he had so many stuffed toys in his bunk that he could barely fit but he didn’t want to throw them out cuz they were gifts from fans.
  • He gives good hugs??? jfgjkfkl

In conclusion, my boy is just shy, he’s said it millions of times. But it doesn’t mean he doesn’t appreciate his fans. I’m pretty sure he understands us pretty well.

“The world is still a good place as long as there are people who live to do good.”

In December of 2016, this photograph of a cleaner in Saudi Arabia gazing at gold was posted on social media, with the cruel caption: “This man deserves to look at trash only.” This heartless taunt caught the attention of Twitter user, ensaneyat, who begged people to help his discover who this man was. Lo and behold, the man was soon identified as 65-year-old Bangladeshi man, Nzerol Abdul Karim. As the internet loves a happy ending to a sad story, generous people worldwide wanted to help this man out and prove that there are still some decent people left in the world. He was showered with gifts, including gold jewellery from the shop window he was gazing into. In addition, somebody also purchased him return tickets to his home country of Bangladesh, so that he could visit his family.

posting this here because @a-miiraculer requested it

BUT BASICALLY the story is that while i was flailing for an idea for @bullysquadess‘s exchange gift, i came across this lovely little ficlet, and started wondering what the scene after hawkmoth’s defeat might look like

so i asked and got permission from @a-miiraculer to write a sequel /o/

(this may be one of the fluffiest things i’ve ever written, be warned :D)

bless both @mirthaculous and @bullysquadess for betaing (LMAO BULLY STILL PsYCHE orz;;; ), especially mirth who did a ton of flow/pacing things and especially bully, who beta’d her own gift like a champ :’D

this fic is a direct continuation to this oneshot

Gabriel Agreste, world-renowned fashion icon, was Hawkmoth.

It was every newspaper headline, the feature of every half-hour newscast, the subject of countless social media debates: Hawkmoth had been uncovered, and imprisoned, and he was Gabriel Agreste.

It was always accompanied by the same clip, too: Gabriel, stiff and silent, bowing his head out of necessity alone as the authorities guided him into a cop car, hands bound and suit impeccable, reporters crushing in from every side. Ladybug stood by watching the tableau, with Chat Noir nowhere to be seen.

Ladybug hated it.

She hated it with every fiber of her being, and it wasn’t even her family that was being taken away.

(That was the other half of the news: poor young Adrien Agreste, left all alone in the world without a soul, what with mommy dead and daddy in jail, and oh no, whatever will he do now?

Ladybug supposed he’d hand the company off to the next most qualified person, collect his trust fund, and use it to get that masters in physics he always wanted. Not everything about this situation was doom and gloom.)

To the dreamers out there: keep dreaming. Keep making things and coming up with things that you can use to bring glory to God. You might not see every dream or every aspect of your dream come to fruition when you think it will, but remember that what you create for the Lord is not in vain.
every blog post or poem you write,
every stroke of your paint brush,
every original song you sing,
every encouraging post you share on social media…
_
Whatever it is, what you do for the Lord is NOT in vain! He sees you and is pleased when you use your gifts, skills, and talents for Him.
_
Even if you’re not the creative type, there are gifts and skills that God has given you, too! You don’t have to be artsy or creative to dream about doing things that are bigger than you! Whether you’re an attorney, a nurse, a police officer, or an accountant you too can create opportunities to serve God with your gifts at work, at church, and in your community.
_
Sometimes, you might feel intimidated or fearful about dreaming too big. Maybe you would really love to see a small group at your job but you’re not sure if the company will go for it. Maybe you want to get more involved with a non-profit but you don’t think you’re skilled enough….but if what’s on your heart feels bigger than you, then great. Why? Because God has been in the business of calling His children to things that are bigger than them since the beginning of time. Wherever He puts you, there will undoubtedly be challenges and there will be times when you want to give up, but keep the faith because you know why you’re doing this and who you’re doing it for: The Lord. God always sees you…even when you’re dreaming and it pleases Him when you do what you do for Him!
_
Therefore, my dear brothers and sisters, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain. - 1 Corinthians 15:58

I have a confession to make: I’ve been slacking on the omgcp train because… I got a Nintendo Switch… and the new Zelda is just too good

It did get me thinking about how the Haus (really the frogs) would react if someone brought home a Nintendo Switch though. Probably Bitty (who’s in his senior year at this point)? As a gift from Jack, who bought it deciding he wanted to give it a try after a life of non-video gaming? The two probably had some fun playing Zelda and 1, 2 Switch in Providence but decided it was too much of a time-suck for the two of them (senior year, Bitty’s Samwell captaincy, NHL captaincy), so Bitty drags it along with him back to Samwell.

Of course, Chowder’s been keeping track of Nintendo stuff, and his family/friends back home have been posting on social media about it, taunting him, when he knows they’re sold out within a twenty-mile radius of campus, so the boy is DYING to play it. When he sees the Switch in front of the television downstairs, he lets out a squeal an opera singer would applaud at. Nursey and Dex are very confused.

Nursey and Dex have probably all played at least a few staple video game franchises in their childhood, but Nursey abandoned them kind of quickly in his attempts to “chill”, and Dex couldn’t really afford consoles as a kid, so he’s only really played them at someone else’s house or something. Chowder plays a bit of Zelda with them as witnesses, and they pass it off as “cool” and go on with their day. (Very reminiscent of a certain confession about someone dating a certain professional hockey player tbh)

Except they’re secretly fascinated by it. For different reasons. They sneak downstairs and swipe it to play for a few hours when they know everyone else is in class. Sure, they both know fuck-all about the plot, but they get the basic premise – walk around, explore, complete quests, kill monsters, stop Ganon – and that’s more than enough for them.

Dex loves it like he loves any good puzzle. An encampment of monsters hoarding a treasure chest to themselves? Obviously, it’s time to start a fire and ride the updraft it produces to get the drop on them. Enemy that’s way too big to take out one on one in a thunderstorm? Bait it with food and turn that sucker into a lightning rod by chucking something metal. Dex is all about this. (He does, however, wish you could repair equipment instead of passively watching it slowly get worn down.)

Nursey’s more into the exploration and the sights. He’s a hazard to himself, really. Chowder leaves off after the introductory tutorials and dungeons, and Nursey decides it’s a good idea to make a beeline for the castle swirling with black and purple clouds and a ravenous demon circling it. He dies. A lot. Until something pretty and glowing red calls his attention to the east, at which he point he turns his focus on it. And dies. Again. A lot. Even death in this game - in the form of crisp, deep red laser beams and soft blue, plush as hell explosions - is a thing to behold. There’s just too many beautiful sights and only four measly hearts to spare, but Nursey’s a trooper. Or a troubadour. Whatever. He perseveres.

And the game is great! What’s not great is the fact that, at least twice a week, the two of them have a similar gap between classes, and they are itching to play. They’ve only played individually though, and they’re probably not looking to share, until one day, Dex cracks and asks, “If I get the game for the first hour, you get it for the next, and we just trade off, okay?” Nursey’s indignant and puts on a front to make things difficult, even though it’s a pretty reasonable offer, but ultimately gives in. Dex returns with the Switch in his hands like a kid stealing a cookie from a cookie jar.

But playing/watching each other play is an exercise in restraint.

Dex wants to work through whatever obstacles and monsters are in his way and complete the main story, but Nursey keeps pointing out randomly glowing things off in the distance no less than twice a minute, and it drives Dex crazy. He blows himself up on his own explosives no less than twice the first time they do this. It’s hard to play while swatting Nursey’s grabby hands away from the screen. (He also gets his hands on some pretty swanky treasure and weaponry thanks to Nursey’s observational skills, but he doesn’t say anything about that.)

Nursey just wants to go climb those icy peaks with the three oddly conspicuous conifers all in a row at the top, or go wander deep into that forest with the monstrously large skeleton in the center as dusk falls, but Dex is just screaming at him and playing backseat Zelda player the whole time. “You can’t go up there. You don’t even have a jacket for the cold! You’re gonna die!” or “Exactly what part of traipsing over the corpse of a dead monster, in a forest where there’s nothing else but undead monsters, is a good idea, Nurse?” Nursey starts to listen after the (reanimated!) skeleton sits on him to death a few times. Dex gives him the idea to maybe wait until the sun comes up before approaching the thing again, and if Nursey waits until Dex isn’t in the room before he tries it, well, that’s just a coincidence. (A coincidence with some kick ass swords as a prize, but hey.)

The third week they do this, Nursey grabs the Switch first and tries to suggest something new. “Yo, instead of us just messing with each other and pissing each other off, maybe we can just, you know…” He waves a hand in between them, half-sure Dex is going to do that squinty thing with his eyes to tell Nursey he’s making no sense and say no.

“Yeah, I actually did some research on that skeleton that dropped its ass on you last time. It turns out it-”

“Wait, bro, are you saying yes to this?” A pause. “And did you seriously just call googling Zelda tips and tricks ‘research’?”

Dex goes red in the face, and Nursey’s almost sure he’s about to take back his tentative agreement until Dex, the dick that he is, makes a solid case for why they should be working together. “Look, the game rewards exploration, and you’ve clearly got some affinity for the type of shiny things game designers set up as bait, but none of the survival skills. We’ve got what the other lacks.” Nursey’s mouth splits into a shit-eating grin. “Just work with me, Nurse.”

Nursey turns his head up in mock reconsideration for a second before remembering he’s one who asked in the first place; he knows it’s fruitless to keep it up any longer. So, he just does what comes naturally and opens his mouth again. “Aw, Dexy, that’s probably the sweetest thing you’ve said to me this year.”

And so begin their new Zelda escapades, whereby Dex picks an objective related to the main quest, and Nursey points out things that might be worth checking out on the way to their destination. They still trade off every hour, but there’s a lot less dying, and a lot more sweet, sweet treasure.

Chowder gets back from class early one day, and considers giving himself some Switch time before he notices it’s not in the dock. He decides he’ll live and is about to turn down the hall to his room when he hears some very distinctive piano notes echoing weakly from the attic.

‘Those fakers,’ he thinks to himself. He creeps up the stairs and swings open the door at the top, a chirp on his lips when he sees them. The chirp dies on the spot.

They’re both conked out, and Dex is lying next to Nursey on the bottom bunk, his head most definitely resting on his shoulder. Nursey’s is resting on top of his, the Switch still in his hand by the floor of his bed.

Chowder just giggles and snaps a picture of them before turning back around and leaving.

(Blackmail, he decides, is an even better way to get Switch time.)

I haven’t posted a selfie in a while. But if you don’t follow me on my other social medias. You don’t know, I just got my new camera for my brother. He got me the Canon EOS Rebel T6. He got me everything I need to take pictures for blogging and filming my Youtube videos. I’m so thankful and overwhelmed by his gift. So I’m learning how for use it. So for now on you will see better quality pictures and videos (lol well until I learn how to film with it).


I hope everyone is doing well. Don’t forget to follow me on my Instagram at the_queen_bambee and my YouTube is Queen Bambee :)

lillytalons  asked:

Modern coravis? Or just as friends if you don't ship them, I'm fine with whatever:)

Even though they’re not my numero uno ship in Narnia (that spot goes to Dolly aka Polly x Digory), I definitely ship their cute, arguing selves with each other.

  • modern au would include lots of pictures
  • cor was terrible at social media but an absolute genius with the camera
  • he took photos of everything he and aravis did, and of both he and aravis, and even of just aravis
  • it annoyed aravis a little at first, then for their one year anniversary dating he gave her a photo album of the most beautiful photos he had taken of them and their time together
  • speaking of giving gifts, aravis would be the absolute worst at giving gifts
  • having been cut off by her parents after running away, she had to work for her money, unlike newly-rich cor
  • so she usually settled with homemade gifts
  • which always ended in a mess
  • glitter and glue and scraps of paper and googly eyes cluttered her room after creating her gift
  • she was embarrassed with her gifts the first few times but cor would make such a big deal of appreciating her gifts
  • she wasn’t convinced of his genuine love of her gifts until he also started making homemade gifts for her
  • both could not make a handcrafted gift to save their lives but it became a tradition
  • everything they had to give each other was homemade
  • they wouldn’t even give each other cards of flowers if they weren’t homemade
  • they originally included food in the homemade gift-giving but after a half-baked cake and awful box of burnt chocolates they decided that food could be bought
  • they moved in together immediately after college
  • only to be followed by corin and lasaraleen who also roomed with them
  • corin and lasaraleen made it difficulty for cor and aravis to act like a normal couple in their own home
  • they once tried to have one of their usual move date nights only to be interrupted by lasaraleen who could remain silent for more than five seconds throughout the film and corin who loudly chewed his popcorn and chips
  • cor and aravis swore never to have a date at home ever again and made sure to never tell corin and lasaraleen when and where they were having a date for fear of them randomly showing up and crashing the date
Fight me!

Boku no Hero Academia. Yoarashi Inasa/Todoroki Shouto.

Rating T. 2 500+ words. Fighting and First Kisses. Birthday gift for the amazing @todorokl !!

Summary: Inasa refuses to fight him but Todoroki is stubborn. 


Now, when everything leaded to this exact moment.

Todoroki’s chest moved up and down as he tried to control his irregular, heavy breathing. His whole body ached and some muscles he didn’t even knew he had burned and tensed with every little movement he made. His trembling legs were about to give out, but his willpower was strong enough to let him stay on his feet. He couldn’t give up now, not after all that trouble he had to go through to end in this situation. Sweat was falling down his brow so, to prevent it from clouding his sight, he quickly cleaned his forehead with the sleeve of his shirt. He didn’t want to, he couldn’t take his eyes away from his opponent.

Inasa was big, much more bigger than him and, while hand to hand combat with someone his size should’ve been a lost battle from the very start, Todoroki was stubborn. His advantage was that he was far more agile than the taller teen so it was easier to evade blows that would’ve sent him to ground. But, even if he managed to evade every hit, it didn’t matter if he didn’t land a good one on his opponent. He was getting exhausted, terribly exhausted. Meanwhile, even though the larger teen was covered in bruises and little cuts, Inasa looked much more composed and in better shape than him.

It wasn’t a fair battle from the start, but Todoroki was stubborn and the one that challenged Inasa.

Todoroki noticed the way in which Inasa’s body shifted so, using  the last of his strength, he rushed to tackle and bring his ridiculously huge body to the ground…

ichaichatactics  asked:

33, 34, 36! Obviously for KAKAITA. ;)c

33. Who would wear ‘not-guilty’ shirt, and who would wear ‘sin’ shirt?

Kakashi would definitely be sporting 'not-guilty’, especially because he could ironically refer to it every time something goes wrong. Itachi would just end up shaking his head and pretending he’s only in this for the eight dogs.

Can’t really see a scenario where Itachi would wear anything with the word sin on it though, unless it was a romantic gift to a certain dirty old man… Hmm. ~thinks of committing fanart

34. 'If lost return to’/'I am’.

With Itachi being the monarch of Assuming Responsibility he’d definitely be the one Kakashi would end up being returned to, once again shaking his head and distracting himself with the multitude of puppers.

36. Who’s the social media addict?

I can totally see them both having completely different uses for social media!

Kakashi would be cruising YouTube and Vine (rip) for cute dog videos, but probably also be some shit posting meme lord on Reddit or something, where as Itachi would spend hours on Pinterest looking at mood boards and admiring people’s decor skills, then switching over to Facebook to poke Sasuke 64 times in a row.

Tom Hardy promises Mother's Day treat as he returns to CBeebies for Bedtime Story

It could be the best gift for mums everywhere on Mother’s Day as it was confirmed that Tom Hardy will be reading a new CBeebies Bedtime Story.

Fans have been swooning over a new teaser clip released ahead of his next storytelling session on Sunday (26 March).

The 39-year-old actor made his Bedtime Story debut on New Year’s Eve, sparking a social media frenzy as flustered mothers watched with their children .

Trending: What happened in George Michael’s last days? New documentary tries to unravel tragedy

On Valentine’s Day, the Taboo star was joined by his dog Woody as he read Tom McLaughlin’s book The Cloudspotter.

Now, as a Mother’s Day treat, Hardy makes a return to children’s TV for a reading of Ross Collins’ There’s A Bear On My Chair.

Surrounded by cuddly toys as he looks directly into the camera, in the teaser Hardy says: “Well, I think that there’s enough room for our mouse and bear to sit together here because it’s good for a mouse and a bear to share.

"I’ll see you soon for a goodnight story. Until then, night night.”

The teaser was posted on the official Facebook account for the children’s channel alongside the caption: “Just leaving this here. Tom Hardy. New CBeebies Bedtime Story. Sunday.”

One user posted: “That grin that he does at the end every time is him literally saying I know what you women are thinking right now.”

Another observed: “This is so unashamedly not aimed at the children … swoon … we owe you big time. Thank you CBeebies for looking after us mums xx.”

Better known for playing villainous characters such as Bane in The Dark Knight Rises, both Kray twins in Legend, and John Fitzgerald in The Revenant, the father-of-two has revealed his softer side with his bedtime stories, to the obvious delight of his new fan base.

And there’s a whole lot more of Tom Hardy to come on CBeebies, with the BBC confirming to Digital Spy that the actor has recorded five Bedtime Stories in total.

Tom Hardy’s latest Bedtime Story will air on Sunday (26 March) at 6.50pm

Rucas + Social Media: Attending Concerts

Lucas might not say it too loud, but he is fond of Selena Gomez. He has all of her album on his itunes music and listens to her when he gets ready in the morning. Riley knows this, so she surprised her boyfriend with tickets to see her.

 


Riley LOVESSSS Beyonce - lets be honest who doesn’t! While planning an anniversary trip with Riley, Lucas found out that Beyonce will be performing in London at the same time. So got his cute ass to the computer right quick and snatched two tickets just in time before they were sold out. We all know the Lucas got a few kisses when he announced his gift to Riley. 

Requested by @jenn0bi Rucas + “Attending Concerts” Social Media Posts :)
Hiiyeee!  just my suggestion for a “new social media post” idea
for two of them, can it be rucas attending a selena gomez concert (for lucas even though i know it’s peyton that loves her lol) and a beyonce concert for our lovely riley? if so, that would be awesome!! if not, it’s all good in the hood :) either way, i know you’ll kill it <3!”

[it’s 3:05 am, her phone’s battery is at 5%, and she just locked herself in the bathroom to look at potter’s instagram. the night couldn’t possibly go worse.] /// [he should definitely be working, or doing something, and not looking at embarrassing pictures of parkinson in bright daylight. what. was happening.] they’re definitely not in love.

so I have random ass thoughts pretty much all the time, and for some reason (not that I’m complaining) I can’t stop thinking about yoongi lately. everyone remembers that time he made gifts for his fans on his birthday, right? yeah well the day we stop talking about that is the day we lose the privilege to call ourselves fans tbh. he took his precious fucking time to personally make 350 gifts and handwritten messages when he could have been composing, practicing, or SLEEPING. AND Y’ALL KNOW HOW THAT HOE FEELS ABOUT HIS SLEEP OK

most idols simply post a thank you on their social media, but min fucking yoongi took it one step further and personalized each gift so that every single fan who received one would feel special. and it’s not even the fact that he did this that gets to me, it’s the fact that he wanted to. on his birthday, on his special day. it’s true that he’s definitely the ‘actions speak louder than words’ type and doesn’t really express his feelings much, but you can tell how sincere he is during the times when he does say what’s on his mind. 

min yoongi loves and appreciates us so so much, so please love and appreciate him also because he should always know that his small little actions are being acknowledged and respected. kpop is an industry that tends to spit out hundreds of robotic-like people (even if it doesn’t mean to), but I can honestly and gladly say that yoongi is one of the most genuine people you’ll ever come across in this competitive business. our fandom is so lucky to have him as a part of bangtan… don’t ever forget that.

Hey guys, it’s been quite a while since I posted something here. Despite being pretty silent, we’ve still been working on making games. I didn’t really update a lot on the social media since the beginning of this year. This is partially because our current project, at this stage, is not ready to be shown to the public yet, but the main reason is that unfortunately, my friend and only game dev teammate (he coded almost every game I designed), Matt, has been diagnosed with a malignant brain tumor.

Matt and I have met way back in 2011 during Steam’s winter sale event called “The Great Gift Pile”. He randomly added me on steam, offering me a series of unreasonable trades. After refusing all of his ridiculous offers, I was about to delete him from my friends list, but then he asked me not to. He told me that he has read some of my game reviews and thought that we shared a similar perspective when it comes to video games.

Matt then asked me what I was doing at the time, so I told him that I was attempting to make an indie game with a IRL friend of mine. Matt wanted to join in. Matt was actually a lost spirit. He quit his college in order to become a gamedev, but then he was sort of lost as to what to do. So he just practiced his programming and art hoping that one day, he can make a game all by himself. I refused his offer, but few months later, my IRL friend had to leave due to financial concerns. That’s when I remembered about Matt and asked him to join me as a programmer.

After that, we were engaged in game development almost everyday since then. At first, I was worried because I live in America, and Matt lives in Slovenia. We have never even seen each other’s faces. So I was concerned he would one day get demotivated and silently vanish like how most wannabe devs do. However, this never happened. No matter how difficult my demands were, and no matter how much I criticized his mistakes, Matt was always there to make something with me. He actually believed in me- a guy he has never seen, and worked with me for almost 4 years. When we started, we didn’t know that much about gamedev, but through all the suffering and pain, we learned a great deal.

Around last Christmas, we started a new project that has yet to be announced anywhere. It was Matt’s favorite project so far. I was also confident in my own design of it. We showed some gifs and video clips to few of the friends we knew, and they were all excited about it. Then Matt started telling me about how he is occasionally suffering from random muscle spasms and nausea. After some diagnosis, it was made clear that he was suffering a brain tumor. Having a friend who survived easily from brain tumor, I wasn’t as worried. However, few days later Matt came to me and said it’s a malignant tumor. I did some research and as I learned more, I felt something shattering in my mind. The survival rate of malignant brain tumor is around 47% at best even after a successful surgery, and that’s the most optimistic estimate. In most cases, the survival rate seems to be a lot lower.

I asked Matt what he wants to do until his surgery. I was totally ready to accept if he were to say “I will stop making games and try to do things I couldn’t do until now. I just want to enjoy my life.”, but then Matt just said:

“Well, what else? Gamedev is the only choice here”. I told Matt that if he wanted to stop, I’d understand, but he insisted that he wanted to keep going. He has been hard at work while also taking some medication since then.

Matt’s surgery is scheduled to be around next Tuesday. I wasn’t sure if I should share this to the public, so I’ve discussed with Matt to see if it’s okay with him. I think it would be nice for Matt to know before the surgery that there are people who want him to survive. He needs to know that some people are waiting for the game he had worked on to be released.

Thank for reading. Let’s all hope that he will survive through this. If you want to send a personal message to Matt, his tumblr is http://mattsuperdev.tumblr.com. Please reblog and comment on this post to show your support. He used to always complain to me how I usually get all the emails and notes while he almost got none. I want to at least do this for him before the surgery.

Honestly imagine dating James he’d be so kind and respectful and loving towards you and he’d be the type to just lay with you watching TV while stroking your hair and playing with it and when you’re ill he’d make breakfast for you and bring you tea and meds and he’d take you out to cute little cafes and you’d walk hand in hand around the city because y'all love to travel and he’d send you gifts while he was on tour because you couldn’t go with him and he’d stand up to anyone being hateful about you on social media or in real life and ugh he’d be he perfect boyfriend literally
