his advices

Hear me out:

I just really really love that they made the Sinclair family the only truly stable, “normal,” nuclear family out of the ones we see in Hawkins. So many times you see black families in film/tv with missing dads or poor relationships or bad discipline. But the Sinclairs are different. Dustin and his mom are clearly a happy family (coming from a single mom family for a good part of my life, I know those families can be just as stable), but he doesn’t have a dad figure/significant role model (until Steve lmao). The Hargroves are fucked. Will’s family (again, a loving one) leaves a lot to be desired in terms of stability. The Wheelers look stable on the outside but their marriage is abysmal and there’s clearly no communication going on. 

But the one time we see all the Sinclairs together, they’re willingly eating a peaceful meal together as a family. Lucas feels comfortable asking his father for advice, and his advice is to, essentially, listen to women you care about.

The Sinclairs are a stable family who are doing a fucking great job with their kids and Lucas’ dad is a great father figure who teaches him to respect and listen to women. It’s solid representation for a minority group who traditionally get painted as having tumultuous family lives in film/tv. I’m here for it.

His little mimic of Cisco’s hands: why did this touch me so much? I’m so touched.

Realized I should share my replies to this:

Because *Harry’s* touched. He’s feeling shy, uncertain, seen plainly, and sensitive. His eye contact is mainly elsewhere or just off. He hides his expression, not able to say anything, as he turns away and shows his acknowledgment and acceptance of Cisco’s observations and advice with his hands.

I had to sit back and think that one out too. Oh, man, group hug everyone. Harry’s got butterflies in his tummy. *hides face in your collar*

I freaking need an internal monologue fic of this stat. If Harry hadn’t already realized how in love he is with Cisco…

That whole "either abandon your family and friends in favor of me or i'll kill you for your betrayal" should have left no doubt as to whether Raven was manipulative or not but somehow people see her as more truthful than Oz. She spends that entire conversation avoiding the whole truth in order to tempt Yang and isolate her from her family, who wants to bet she asked for that ability against his advice but had second thoughts once she had it and blamed everyone but herself?

Oh that’s totally what happened, Raven Branwen is the least reliable narrator in the world.

After rushima Mutsuki is worried he might be pregnant and turns to urie for help and comfort

Please be advised that this contains references to Mutsuki’s sexual assault, and his self-imposed victim-blaming. :( 

Mutsuki hasn’t bled this month.

He paces his room in the Chateau. No, he needs to escape this - everyone’s going to know he’s a girl. Everyone will grab him and use him, over and over and over.

He can’t have Torso’s kid.

He hasn’t been eating properly, either. What if it’s because he’s incubating a fucking ghoul baby?

Mutsuki doubles over to release a silent scream.

One thing will settle this, but he can’t - he’s a male. He can’t walk into a store to buy a test. He just can’t.

He sits at his laptop, printing out advice on homemade test after homemade test. Maybe not as reliable, but right now he doesn’t care.

His door flies open. The printouts fly every which way. Mutsuki yelps.

“Would you like to get curry?” Urie asks gruffly. Saiko wanted him to “help Mucchy,” so here he is. “Oh, sorry.”

He grabs the papers. “Here.”

Sugar Test vs. Toothpaste Test. 

Urie freezes. 

Mutsuki cries out. 

“Mutsuki?” Urie whispers.

Mutsuki trembles. He stares ahead, into nothing. He wants to break apart and die.

Urie places the papers on Mutsuki’s desk and, awkwardly, places a hand on Mutsuki’s shoulder. Suddenly, the demolition of Torso’s corpse seems too kind an end for that creature. “Are you sure?”

Mutsuki bursts into tears. He claps a hand over his mouth to cover his wails. 

“It’s not your fault. It’s not, Mutuski. Tooru.” Urie is shaking with horror. 

“Help me,” Mutsuki gasps. “Please.”

“I will!” Urie fights back tears. He’s always suspected, but, to know that Torso raped Mutsuki…He wishes he could light Saeki on fire. 

“It’s my fault, it’s my fault, please help me. I’m so evil. I want to die.” Mutsuki recalls his parents, his father, his lies, the cat… He’s as evil as they come. Someone like him is raped twice because he deserves it, right? 

“Stop it.” Urie shakes him. “It’s not your fault. I wish - I would have rather it been me, Mutsuki. I am going to help you. Now, have you taken a legitimate test?”

Mutsuki shakes his head.

“Okay.” Urie blushes. “I’ll buy you one. Can you hold on for 20 minutes?”

Mutsuki nods. 

Urie hugs him. It’s awkward and passionate and oh-so-Urie. Mutsuki’s heart rate slows.

When Urie returns, he sees that Mutsuki hasn’t moved. “I, uh, bought three. Just in case.”

Mutsuki has to laugh. “Of course you did.”

Urie smirks, pleased that Mucchan can joke right now. He hands him the bag. “Here. I’ll wait outside. And, uh - Mutsuki - if it’s positive, I will help you end it if you want.” 

Mutsuki nods, miserable again.

But when he emerges, his hands are shaking. “It’s - negative. All three.”

Urie gasps. “Tooru!” He holds out his hands. “I’ll hide the boxes.”

“Thank you.” Mutsuki smiles slightly. He feels embarrassed that Urie knows, and for nothing.

“Tooru. It isn’t your fault.”

“This is the second time I’ve been raped, Urie.” Mutsuki dissolves into more tears.

Urie feels cold. “Second?!”

“My - my dad.” Mutsuki shakes with memories. “There has to be something I did.”

“Not in the slightest.” Urie now wants to cheer on the ghouls who killed Mucchan’s family. Fuck this shit. “Fuck the patriarchy. Fuck the world. This isn’t your fault. It’s Torso’s and your Dad’s and maybe mine for not getting there sooner. Tooru, you deserve the world.”

Mutsuki shakes his head. “I can’t see it.”

“I can. Let me show you.” Urie smiles down at Mutsuki. His eyes are kind, smart, and sincere. He doesn’t want to prey on Mutsuki. 

Mutsuki feels safe with Urie. 

“Curry?” Urie offers his hand.

“I can’t eat!” Mutsuki blurts out. Kill me.

Urie blinks rapidly. Does misery never end for Mutsuki? “Okay. One problem at a time. Let me dispose of these - I’ll find Takeomi’s trash or something. Then I’ll be back and we’ll talk more.”

“I’m not abandoning you, not ever,” he adds.

And Mutsuki - he can’t help but believe Urie.

Hi sweetie. Do it. Noone has the right to bully you for standing up for what is right, for what you love. And you can always block/report or turn off anon. You don’t have to respond to hateful messages, just delete them. also you’ld be surprised of all the messages with support you’ll get :)

Again noone has the right to give you hate for what is right. If they do it is bullying!!

Hi !!! !! I need some advice !! I made a bunch of new friends and we're all super super close and since I'm the youngest out of us all they baby me a lot and I slip into little space when im with them all the time !! They don't know I'm a little am I being bad if I don't tell them? I don't want anything to change!!! I love the nicknames !!! They always call me little one and baby and kitten and other cute stuff !! It's hard being a little in public but it feels safe when I'm with them!!!

Aww omg thats so cute!! I’m so happy you have a lot of friends that are so wonderful and you can feel comfortable around 💕

No you aren’t doing anything bad by not telling them! That’s okay!

No one I know irl knows I’m a little! I just keep it to myself. But it does get lonely, so who knows! Maybe one of your friends already knows, or is a little themselves!

There’s no pressure in having to tell them, but if you’re comfortable with it just open up to them. Chances are they already know with all the cute names they call you! ♥

anonymous asked:

One thing I don’t understand is Yukio’s smirking face whenever someone (more like Shura) talks to him. I wonder what is that supposed to mean? What is he thinking atm? And how do you think the Rin/Yukiko confrontation will go?

Could just be more of this

One of Yukio’s go-tos seems to be smiling/laughing when he’s stressed. And you know that feeling where you’re just so astronomically fucked that it’s hilarious? Like you can’t help but emotionally loop back around to amused because this is happening, of course it is, why wouldn’t it? 

It’s so funny. He’s the human twin, the exorcist, and now he’s in custody. He told Rin over and over again to be careful and he didn’t listen to his own advice. He just…got arrested on national television for shooting the Japanese Head of the True Cross. It’s hilarious. And they don’t even know about his eye yet! (until Shura looks at him, anyways)

I think that’s what it is anyways.

I’m not sure. Because Yukio seemed displeased/bitter to see Rin at the end. I think Yukio is in a really bad place right now and is going to act super aggressively. 

Good thing (i’m assuming!) they took his weapons when they arrested him.

I think Yukio is going to fight Rin and is going to yell at him. And if Rin takes his restraints off Yukio might hit him again. And say some more hurtful things. 

I think Rin is going to do that thing

Where he smiles and bears it. Like he did after Yukio punched him and Neuhaus stabbed him and when Shiemi initially came to get him in the prison.

As I’ve stated before Rin is, at his core, passive. And I think he’ll want to let Yukio get it all out, especially since he berated himself for “not being more understanding” before. So Rin will want to be extra attentive to Yukio’s thoughts and feelings right now.

But as we’ve seen Rin is also not going to quietly take it. He’ll probably yell back and how they’re brothers, like he did during their first fight in the classroom.

And with their luck it’s going to get interrupted by something, a demon or the exorcists coming back. Because that always happens.


I want to know what Shima is up to. As I stated before if he takes Yukio/leads Yukio away Rin is going to seriously beat him into the ground.

anonymous asked:

Hi there, I was wondering if you could help me! Ummmm, in my writing, I notice that I keep writing in present and past tense. I want to keep it in one tense. So, my question is, how do I stick to one tense instead of mixing it up? Looking forward to your answer.

Hi!

Don’t worry, this is a problem that a lot of writers have and keeping to one tense while writing is something that comes with practice and editing.
With time and practice, you will learn which tense is more natural to you; for instance, I tend to write in past tense whereas my friend chooses to write in present tense. This varies depending on who you are and is often influenced by what you read, but with time, you’ll learn what works for you.

When you start writing, take note of which tense you want to work in and try and train your mind to see the story that way. For instance, if you’re working in past tense try and remind yourself that your story has happened, the characters walked, said, fought, etc. But if you’re working in present tense, try and remind yourself that it’s happening to them right now, so they walk, say, fight, etc.

When rereading your work and editing it, take note of when you change tense and don’t be afraid to look up references on tense! There are a lot of references out there that can be helpful and if you’re still confused about what tense a word is you can always Google it.

Another thing to keep in mind is that some times tense changes come from your notes or planning; if you plan the story out in present tense but write it in past tense, some of the errors filter through.

There are times when you need to change tense in your work. For instance, when you’re writing in present tense and use past tense to signify a flashback.

Don’t let this get you down! Tense is one of the hardest parts of writing and there are a lot of people out there who have the same problem, including me sometimes. The upside is there’s a lot of resources out there to help you too.

Hopefully this helps and all the best with your writing!

Hi hi i need advice. I haves a new caregiver but he is very very new to cgl or cglre. Any advice to how to explain it to him. I wants rules and super loves but i dont want to pressure him to do it. Id feel bad if i pressured him. Signed- bunny

Hi bunny!!
Don’t feel like you’re pressuring him, it sounds like he’s already happy to be your caregiver 💕

Just explain to him what cgl is to you! What about it makes you happy and comfortable with being a little and having someone to take care of you?

Explain your likes and dislikes!! And tell him why you like and dislike those things! (ex. “I use a paci when I need to calm down when I’m anxious”) or (“I like sippy cups because there are a lot of cute ones, and they make me feel small!” 💕)

If you plan on having rules, let him know that rules should be there to teach you and help you be a good healthy bunny!! So let him know what you need to remember! Maybe to drink enough water, to eat healthy foods, clean up your bedroom or to have a bedtime so you can get enough sleep etc.

Just be open with how you feel, and explain to him what being a little means to you ♥ good luck and much love 😘

Sean Pertwee gives advice on how to treat people at Toronto Comicon ‘17 (x)

As requested by @yayume-ladypenguin

tips all students need

1. learning is better than knowing. you don’t need to be a genius to do well in school, only dedicated enough to actively pursue your education. 

2. straight A’s =/= intelligence. don’t let your grades define you; test grades can’t capture the passion in your eyes and the resilience in your bones.

3.  friendships change, but sometimes that's a good thing. some relationships are bested by time, and people grow apart. in the absence of others, you may find that you’ve been missing out on what’s been right in front of you the entire time. 

4. rest is important. your health is always more important than school. while stress is inevitable, never be afraid to take a day off, or talk to a trusted adult. Mental health is just as valid as physical health.

5. your life is just beginning. i know that failing test grade or the fact that your crush rejected you seems like the end of the world, but i promise you that it’s not the end. life is literally the longest thing any of us will experience, so fall in love with living. think of every opportunity as just another beginning.

Kol angsting over Davina’s picture

I just read an article by a male author where he is trying to give advice to romance authors on how to write believable men. Basically his advice is to make them dumber and hornier. Like bruh…I don’t think you understand the point of romance novels.

We know what standard, low effort, uninteresting men are like in real life (trust me. We knooooow)

Sorry if being held to a higher standard makes you feel bad :(

NEW VIDEO: “LGBTQ+ Advice: Bigot Grandmas, Getting Tested, First Pride & More! - one of my favorite things about being in the LGBTQ+ community is the chosen family it comes with. I’m no expert, but in my new video, I give viewers some big-brother advice from the heart. Hope it helps - I don’t have all the answers, so ask YOUR chosen family for advice you need! :]

hey friends!! a lot of you ask me for tips on things all the time + this is just some really good advice i’ve learnt throughout my years of being a student shared with you:

revision

  • study frequently so when exams/tests come by you only need to revise your shorter notes [you will thank yourself later]
  • i know it’s tedious but try to always do your homework [it’ll help you in the long run]
  • do your readings before class, this will help you understand better!!
  • use time wisely, for example study on the bus on the way to school [i really like doing this]
  • teach yourself material by giving lessons to soft toys or maybe using actual tools found in your household [i like using this method particularly for biology especially with water]
  • if you have to read to revise, read aloud
  • record yourself to be able to listen later when on the bus or something [i like doing this with poetry]
  • make sure to always get enough sleep, it’s not worth it losing sleep over studying! [also i find it better to wake up a little early to revise than sleep late]
  • incense works wonders if you’re trying to calm yourself down whilst studying
  • keep a hot beverage around when you’re studying + reward yourself by drinking a little bit of it when you want to
  • get rid of distractions while you’re studying, put your phone on flight mode or leave it to charge somewhere
  • if music doesn’t hinder your attention span, then listen to it whilst studying/doing homework [i suggest classical music/coffee shop noises/rain sounds] ~ [my spotify playlist // classical favourites // get ur studying on // flourishment]
  • watch videos on a particular topic before you cover it in class
  • if your syllabuses are available online, download them + print them out
  • have an organised desk, it helps you feel less stressed
  • use the pomodoro technique to study
  • make sure you have good lighting
  • work out past exam papers if they’re available to you, these are really good practice for your exam!
  • talk to your teachers during their office hours if you need to, that’s what they’re there for
  • if you’re too afraid to do the latter, send them an email when you need them!
  • have different files for every subject to keep you organised
  • don’t neglect any subject- just give them the time they need + prioritise
  • use a planner/bullet journal to help you plan your week

school stuff

  • smile at people, you have no idea how much it could brighten their day [plus your smile is great!!!]
  • always keep a water bottle handy
  • make your school lunch in the evening so you can sleep a bit more in the morning + not spend your money on school lunches
  • always take your headphones + charger to school [if they’re allowed]
  • keep some emergency money or something in your pencil case, you never know when you might need them!
  • if you menstruate make sure to keep a bag with stuff for when you’re menstruating [if not for you, maybe your friends may need something too]
  • take naps on the bus if the journey is long [make sure you don’t sleep + end up on the other side of the city/country]
  • if you have free lessons, utilise them! do your work at school if it can be done there so you are able to study/relax at home!
  • always take a book with you to school just in case you ever get bored
  • go to a guidance counselour if you need one [they can help with practically anything you may need!] 
  • go to private tutoring lessons if you need them/can afford them

personal life

  • take pictures, lots of them!!! not just for instagram or something, they’re actually a really great memory
  • don’t forget to visit your relatives every now and then
  • watch the news/read articles to help you stay in touch with the real world
  • don’t worry so much about social media honestly from experience, it’s trivial anyway. indulge yourself in the real world + spend time with family and friends!!
  • don’t compare yourself to others, you’re not them + they are not you!
  • try to get some exercise done, even if it’s just using the stairs instead of a lift or dancing around in your room
  • always keep yourself hydrated
  • remember to take a day off once a week, it’ll help you avoid burnout
  • eat fruits/nuts as a snack!! 

+ my masterposts

these are all practically all the tips i can remember!! i hope they help a lot of you out <3 good luck with school
