hope that doesnt happen to this one

Ronan probably always noticed how Adam’s ears would burn bright pink whenever he was embarrassed; but never thought it’d be because of him.

This is the seventh installment in a series of book recommendations, all of which will introduce you to kickass women from mythologies around the world, all of them written by women. All books listed had to pass the following criteria: 

  • Be written by a woman
  • Be fictional
  • Have a woman as (one of) the protagonist(s)
  • Feature Russian or Slavic mythology

This recommendation list comes on the heels of the Asian mythology rec list, because I really wanted to include Russia (which falls under both Asian and Slavic mythology), but I wanted to keep the country as a whole in one post. @kostromas (x) and @lamus-dworski (x) (x) were kind enough to take some time answering my questions.

While I mainly looked for books ft. Russian and Slavic mythologies (I used this Wiki file as a measure to determine the Slavic region), I also include a few books with other origins, such as Norway and various Eastern European countries, because I think - out of all the recommendation posts I have done and plan to do - this is the one they would fit best in. 

Please note as well that there is a lot of overlap among most of these cultures, with different versions of a character appearing in many, so some of the below classifications may be rather arbitrary (I usually go with what’s 1) listed in the summary, then see if 2) the writer specifies a culture, or if 3) readers had helpful input).

UPDATE: It’s been brought to my attention that this post could do with some clarification and additions. To start with, I’d like to address the small number of books listed under Slavic. I don’t mean to say that only the countries listed are Slavic countries. The list is as limited as it is because I found it difficult to locate books that met all the above listed criteria, and an unconscious fifth - that they be written in English. If you take out any one of those criteria, a larger pool of books would open itself up, and I encourage you to consider that as an option.

While I understand that limiting these lists to books written in or translated into English is not ideal, I also don’t think I am the right person to judge which books written in Slavic languages should be included, as I am not Slavic and don’t speak or read Slavic languages. Readers should be aware though, that reading a book featuring Slavic mythologies or cultures, which are not written by someone who identifies as Slavic, may promote a stereotypical or otherwise harmful depiction of those cultures. 

Moreover, those authors who do hail from the relevant region are more likely to be published if they don’t push the envelope too much to be acceptable for a generic Western audience. Therefore, additional reading of books on and / or featuring Slavic mythologies or cultures can aid in understanding the context of these tales. I have listed a couple of books in the honourable mentions with that in mind, and I have decided to add an asterisk (*) to all works written by an author who is confirmed as hailing from the region their work is set in. Typically, I’ve listed one or two books per author, but do check for their other writing.

Finally, I should add that I might have made a mistake in including Russia in this list. This was done because I wanted to keep the country in one post, rather than splitting it between the Asian list and this one. The Asian one was sufficiently long I didn’t want to add it there, but I might have been better off creating a completely separate list for it rather than including it here.

With the above reasons in mind, I have decided to move the Slavic section up, I have added a number of entries throughout, and expanded the resources list at the bottom.

Slavic

Russia

Other regions (not Slavic or Russian)

Undefined / speculative

Historical fiction

Comics & graphic novels

Some collected tales

Poetry

Honourable mentions

Other lists you can consult

If you have any suggestions for other Slavic and / or Russian women who deserve more attention (and a corresponding book), or which mythology should definitely be in this series, drop me a line!

Baseball Game

“We should do this more often.” Sam whispered under his breath as he watched the players warming up.

Dean nodded in his stadium seat with a beer in his hand. “Yeah, I kinda wish we got to do stuff like this more often.”

The two brothers watched as players tossed the ball idly back and worth, waiting for the inning to go under way. It wasn’t even a major league game, it was only farm teams. But something almost like nostalgia took Dean’s hold. He wishes he had memories like going with his dad to a baseball game. He wishes he could take back some of the time he had had with his dad to take him to a ball field.

“Knowing our luck, there’s probably a demon on the team.” Sam snorted before settling back in his seat.

“Don’t you dare jinx us.” Dean sent a glare over at his brother but it melted into a smile when he noticed the way his brother’s face glowed in the sunlight. He wishes Sammy would look like that more often, like he wasn’t preparing himself for another hardship. In that moment it was easy for Dean to imagine that his younger brother was just another bystander that got to enjoy the simple things in life such as a baseball game.

“Dean! Sam!” A rough voice called enthusiastically from below them.

Their heads turned down to see Castiel. The fallen angel was talking with one of the players. Dean had pulled a lot of strings so that Cas could throw the first pitch. It was worth it when he saw the look of unbridled joy on Cas’ face after he threw a strike in front of the entire stadium

Cas sent them a wave before turning back to the player and motioning his arms in outrageous gestures. Dean felt as though he was floating on air.

“You know, you did a good thing.” Sam nudged his brother. “I haven’t seen his eyes light up like that in a long time.”

“Yeah.” The older hunter let out a deep sigh before readjusting in his seat. His eyes never left Cas’ profile. “I figured since Cas saved the world he deserved to throw a first pitch.”

“How did you manage that?”

“An old hunting pal is now the manager of the team.” Dean smirked. “Old friend of dad’s who actually got old enough to retire.”

“Good for him.” Sam eyed over the line of coaches, trying to find one that looked a little rough around the edges. “Maybe one day we’ll be old geezers sitting here enjoying a game.”

Dean felt a pang on something ache in his chest. “Maybe.”

“Dean!” Cas’ voice boomed again.

Dean’s eyes fell to meet Cas’. “What?!” He had to shout to be heard over the crowd.

“They said I get to keep the ball!” Castiel waved the baseball over his head with a childish grin. “They signed it!”

Sam chuckled with a fond shake of his head. “What a dork.”

“He might be a dork, but he’s our dork.” Dean grinned widely at Cas, feeling a little hope for a bright future nestle inside of his mind.

“Riiiiiight.” Sam rolled his eyes. “You mean he’s your dork.”

“And I’m damn proud of it.” Dean watched like a hawk as Cas shook hands with the player and then started up toward their seats. The moment Cas fell into his seat beside him, Dean had an arm slung across his shoulders.

“Look!” Cas shoved the ball into his face. “Isn’t it ‘awesome’?”

Dean chuckled at their one-handed air quotes before leaning over and placing a quick kiss on Cas’ forehead. “It is, sweetheart.”

Twenty minutes later as Dean was explaining the foul ball line for the millionth time to the fallen angel and trying to keep Sam from buying too many expensive ballpark snacks, he almost regretted his decision to bring Team Free Will to a baseball game. Almost.

DON'T WASTE THAT YOUTH.

We all know. We are young, fun and beautiful. 

Which is why we get all that cash. Men are rich, men are generous and most of all- men are easy. 

However, don’t waste your time. You won’t look like this forever. You won’t be this rebellious forever. And you won’t have this realistic view on the world forever. I hope you will, but one day, you might be living in a beautiful house with a picket fence - hiding your past from your whorephobic husband. Thinking of the time you had all the possibilities. That time is now.

Alright my chicas, bitches, whores or whatever you wanna call yourselves - Lets make sure that doesn’t happen.

LIVE

It doesnt matter if your sugar daddy wants to take you to Cabo for the week. if you had any other plans, for example a weekend with the girls - do that. Trust me. Weekends with friends in shitty places are always more fun then the ones with a boring man in the most beautiful place on the planet.

STUDY/WORK

If i had a dime for every time I was offered thousands of $ to drop my study.. you know where I am going with this. No man, no amount of money, no travel destination and no bag is worth fucking up your life plans for. 

My current Sugar Daddy asked me not to go to South Africa for my internship - Now he is financing it. The right arguments (and I’m not talking about boobs) will convince him.

The point is: Don’t let a SD influence you in important decisions. Always have these men matter less than they wish they did,

THIS AINT A PARTY!! GET OFF THE DANCE FLOOR

commission info | patreon

Trans headcanons are wonderful,  and trans girl Marco is honestly one of my favourites.  Its also definitely the most well supported by canon that ive seen personally,  which is pretty exciting (Im aware the chances of disney actually going through with it are unlikely,  but still I can hope and even if it doesnt happen its still an awesome theory/headcanon).  

so after i watched voltron i immediately got all my sisters into it as well. one binge watch later i asked the youngest (14yrs) who her favorite character was. her answer was that one galra grunt whos bloodthirstyness was a three. we started talking about him and came up with our own headcanons for him like:

-no matter how hard he tries, he will never be able to pronounce that one commanders name right

-despite how much he had hoped, he doesnt get transferred from the ship were nothing happens

-my sister has named him joe because hes an average joe

-him and the other grunts play galatic checkers or so,e card games and his chances of winning are 50/50

-the reason he doesnt get transferred is beacause hes so average

-his social life is pretty average with an average amount of friends

-hes the average guy who wants more with his life

((he is us. hes the relatable one of all the galra))

One thing I hope doesnt fucking happen is that the line T'Challa says “I like to see them try” (or at least that’s the version I remember) about people getting Bucky from Wakanda means that Black Panther movie turns into a “save the white boy from the government” movie. Because that line implies a foreshadow of BP being “gotta save bucky from the cops” plot line and I’m just like “no”

as a celebration to recently hitting 3k, i decided to finally to a tumblr awards!! i’ll probably close this in a month, but it depends on how many people enter. i’ll choose one winner and two/three runner ups!! dw if you miss out this time bc i’m planning to do some promos in the future ^-^

Hey, daniellekoste, did I happen to get that boxing pose you wanted?

A request that wasn’t entirely a request tbh. I had planned to do those tattoos anyway.

okay this will be the simmons losing his arm part of the story, this whole thing is sorta like a big combination of things people have talked to me about and i tried my best to stick it all together

Keep reading

and like, its really not that hard to see the classpect system as neutral

just because are only two (TWO!) examples of Rage players from one session of universe in the entire multiverse that happened to both be alpha timeline sanctioned to serve a dark lord villain because the plotline of homestuck says so doesnt mean Rage as an aspect altogether needs to be thrown out the window

Homestuck the story is not the be-all end-all of the Homestuck Multiverse™. We know this because more sessions exist in canon than the ones we have directly witnessed, and because Hiveswap exists, which also doesn’t need to have a playable SBURB component to expand on the system itself through any sort of insight or dialogue or anything at all. 

we’ve seen probably exactly 0.02% of Rage as an aspect’s direct influence on reality, there’s plenty we haven’t seen. Same goes for Bards and for Princes and Doom and whatever else class or aspect has unfair negativity attached to it, like Mages because my poor word choice of suffering, or that Knight theory that they kill their session just by existing (which has never stopped being dumb for me)

Dirk alone is proof of this concept between himself as Dirk and his other versions of himself like AR and Bro. 

even then, there is so much we can glean about Rage in canon that have nothing to do with Gamzee or Kurloz. Hope is Rage’s opposite. Anything that IS Hope, IS NOT Rage. and the same goes for the other around too. Anything that IS Rage, IS NOT Hope, it cannot be, or else they wouldn’t be opposite fundamental forces of reality. and we have 3 Hope players to triangulate between, so its not hard to see patterns and similarities between them that logic states, if they are a pattern across Hope players, they would not be a pattern in Rage players. This is entirely the reason why we have so many character examples of varied, different, classpects. So we can triangulate their meaning from across the board

so many thoughts, I should really just write out a huge post about Class and Aspect fandom stereotypes and how to break them while staying 100% canon

anonymous asked:

hey! do you (or your followers) happen to know of any whump thats basically the whole package or anything that comes close - like good whump to start, other characters comforting them, hospital/healing? type scenes, a believable recovery, etc? ive got a huge folder of whump on my computer and ive never found the whole deal; theyre always just one part or they skim over it all like it doesnt matter, you know? sorry this is awkwardly phrased i hope you know what i mean

You could try Fringe 2x13, Killjoys 1x07, Zoo 1x12, Scandal 3x02, Revolution 2x03, Daredevil 1x02, Grimm 1x08, Lost 2x08 & 3x04. :)

Guys I was thinking about the possible Destiel face caressing and I got one conclusion:

Even if it doesnt make the final cut,is an AMAZING sign.You know why?Because,whatever is happening in this scene,whatever is that they will talk to each other,is so intimate that one of the actors feel like a face caressing would be aproppriate gesture.And that makes me hopeful and happy.

Kirkman said that his hopes for the pair (Bethyl) to have a romantic relationship are slim — not just because of the age difference and because Carol remains out there in the world (at least for now), but because they’ve been separated and, as far as we’ve seen so far, Daryl hasn’t made it his top priority to find her just yet.
—  X gotta love that Carol’s existence is one of the main reason bethyl will never happen. She doesnt even need to be around or near Daryl to be a threat. Also for Carol finding Sophia was Daryl’s top priority…lol
