how do i describe what this is

anonymous asked:

if they make acotar movies i'd love a much more diverse cast. i'd maybe want to see zendaya as feyre. mor should be someone who stays true to how she's described but if amren isn't portrayed as asian i will probably flip. opinions?

I agree wholly on the diverse cast, as I don’t see Rhys, Cas, and Az as white, and I also see Amren as Asian. But yes, Mor would have to be the spunky blonde imo.

I do think it would be really awesome if they made Feyre poc (especially since she’s linked to Persephone’s story in acomaf). But I guess we’ll have to have our fingers crossed and wait to see what happens.

Guys! I’m so so happy how much these tasks have grown throughout the weeks we started doing them. It makes me so happy that people are invested in this. With that, I present to you another writing task this week! Remember, tasks are optional!

Relationships. All your characters have been through them. Whether they are currently in love, heartbroken, or living the single life: there is something about relationships that have impacted them. In 1-2 paragraphs (always welcome to write more!), talk about your character’s current relationship. What was their first meeting like? When did they first started gaining feelings? When did they start dating? How can you describe their relationship now? If your character is not in a relationship, write 1-2 paragraphs about a relationship that created an impact. Describe what the relationship was like? How are their feelings now towards it? If you have more than one relationship that you’d like to discuss, go right ahead. The more detailed, the more better. MOODBOARDS ARE ALWAYS WELCOMED! The more creative, the more in depth your character can be!

Make sure to tag the task as: TST.TASK3. If you have any questions, please IM me! Have fun guys! This event ends on March 29th at 11:00 P.M.

bundropper  asked:

i agree w/regionality having a large impact (more than age imo); i live in the rural conservative US & q is the most widely used homophobic slur i've encountered (outside f*g) but that's also happening in a setting where few ppl are openly out. all i know for sure is that the few out ppl i know who are out here def do not use it to describe themselves; there's also no 'community', access to q academia/theory, or desire for those things, so most ppl never encounter a positive usage of the term

I mean this is likely true, but in my region the term which most people (including me) are bullied with is ‘gay’. I’m not sure how we can resolve which of these terms is no longer appropriate to use; each is regionally used to harm people but also in widespread use as an identity term.

i’m not sure what you mean by there being no community access to queer intellectual thought or positive usage of the term. there’s a national queer-straight alliance network running in high schools in my country, and a pretty universal feature of safe spaces and youth drop-in centres is the bookshelf stocked with literature. Now I don’t think each and every one of these kids is reading Judith Butler (I’d only recommend some of her stuff anyway) but queer theory (for better or worse) has been the dominant paradigm in sexuality studies for the last 20 or 30 years. I just don’t accept that none of this is represented in the discourse younger people are being exposed to. I know that’s certainly not true of any of the resources Rainbow Youth creates or makes available. And while it’s true we’re not representative of the whole planet, neither is the queer-is-a-slur perspective. I just don’t think it can be totalised the way it presently is.

anonymous asked:

Hey I really need your advice on something! Okay so I love love loooove me some good D but lately I've been thinking about girls as well and how I like kissing girls and stuff but in the future I see myself with a guy not with a girl so I'm not sure how to identify myself? Like am I straight? Am I bi? Am I just a straight girl who likes kissing girls every now and then? I don't know

Heteroflexible is what I used to describe myself as. Just embrace whatever you are! If you like kissing boys, go ahead and kiss boys! And if you like kissing girls too, go for it! Life is short. Do what you want

shacklesburst  asked:

sirius, arcturus, black eye galaxy ;)

Have you ever failed a class?


Have you cried out of something other than sadness?

I’ve cried more from joy, compassion, and beauty than from sadness. Well, recently, at least.

Do you believe in love at first sight?

I thought I did, but you made a good case against the idea.

If “love” means companionship, trust, and mutual affection, then we shouldn’t expect to see love at first sight. I’d still like to think I believe in love at first sight, but I’m reliably told that that’s bad for me.

I still think there’s something to the idea. I don’t think it describes what you felt at the moment, but how you understand the moment now. That might seem like an evasion, but I don’t think it is.

“Love” doesn’t sit in the world. It sits in the understanding. Love isn’t something that has beginnings and endings in the world. Love has its beginnings and endings in the understanding. And the understanding creates its own meanings. It decides its own feelings. And it decides when love begins and ends.

The understanding has the absolute discretion to decide whether what it felt “at first sight” was love or not. It has the discretion to decide that years after the fact. It narrates its own relationships. It decides their form and content. It writes its own history.

The understanding has this power not because it changes facts or memories, but because “love” sits both in the present and the past. In the present, the understanding can decide that its “love” was something that began “at first sight,” even in the full knowledge that its feelings in the moment were uncertain.

So if by “love” you mean “the set of feelings and experiences identified with mature relationships,” there’s probably no love at first sight. But if by “love” you mean “the subjective description of personal relationships,” and if you’ll indulge me to identify “first sight” as something in the understanding, rather than the world, then “love at first sight” absolutely exists.

Because love is a story we tell about ourselves.

Um... What the hell.... I just saw your post. I just have to say I don't mind Sh/adin unless it is Shidge but that fic is just so fucked up man. I mean I am a She/ith &I Klance shipper and I am so... I don't even have words to describe how grossed out I am. I-I... That is just horrible... That person honestly gets all the hate. I usually don't say that but I do. They fucking made them preschoolers!? Like what the actual fuck!?

Honestly, even reading a paragraph of it made me throw up. And the fandom is trying it’s best to get that away from us, because that stuff is pedophilia. Just, the fact that they’re is a pedophile in the community that has made a fic about their twisted fantasies, is the worst thing ever.

But, at least people are fighting against it.

dear white male writers: DO NOT DO THIS

These horrific, sexist, racist paragraphs - screenshotted and shared for posterity by James Smythe, to whom we are all indebted - are the work of one Liam O’Flynn, a writer and English teacher. Evidently, they come from his book Writing With Stardust: the Ultimate Descriptive Guide for students, parents, teachers, and lovers of English, and are intended as examples of good writing.



Like I just. “Her virility-brown eyes -” WHAT DOES THIS EVEN MEAN? How can you have an “Amazonian figure” ON a “wafer-thin body” when “figure” is a word that describe’s a body’s shape, and Amazonian means pretty much the DIRECT FUCKING OPPOSITE of “wafer-thin” in the first place?  What the shitting fuck does ANY of this mean, apart from “I am only nebulously familiar with the concept of women and completely at a loss if I can’t compare their various bodyparts to jewels, animals and footstuffs”?

maybe one day if, IF, i have a red bubble or something-
i just might do an artbook of these guys, a drawing based of what have they been doing for the past month/years from all of the live stream and videos that they did, and a character sheets of how WE describe the teamiplier family members!

but we’ll see

Seeing as ‘Riverdale’ Jughead Jones is creating too much disagreement I decided to leave this here, hoping it would help you understand better what Asexuality really is and maybe lessen up this disappointment

Learn what it means to be asexual.

Asexuality is a sexual orientation that means a person feels no sexual attraction to people of any gender. However, a person who identifies as asexual can still choose to have sex, can still love, can still be involved with a romantic partner or get married, and can still engage in normal relationships.

Asexuality doesn’t describe what a person chooses to do, but rather how a person feels. Asexual people have emotional needs, feel attraction to others, and can even feel arousal: they just don’t feel sexual attraction.

  • Many asexual people still identify as lesbian, gay, straight, bisexual, or pansexual (attracted to people of any gender or sexual orientation) as well.
  • Asexuality is not the same as having a low libido, which can be caused by medical or health issues, nor is it the same as repressing one’s sexual desires.

Understand the asexuality umbrella.

As with any sexual orientation, the label asexual is a generalization that doesn’t explain or represent everyone who identifies that way. All humans are unique and individual, and sexual orientation exists on a spectrum of needs, desires, interests, and attractions. Think of asexuality as an umbrella term that describes people who identify as asexual, gray-asexual, and demisexual.

  • Gray-asexual means that a person experiences sexual attraction, but either not very often or only to a minimal extent.
  • Demisexual describes a person who only feels sexual attraction to people with whom a close emotional bond has been formed.

Differentiate asexuality from abstinence and celibacy.

Abstinence is the deliberate choice to refrain from sexual activity, while celibacy is the deliberate choice to refrain from sexual activity and marriage (or marriage-like relationships). These choices may be made for religious, philosophical, moral, or other reasons. Asexuality is a lack of sexual attraction, but not necessarily a lack of sexual appetite (libido). This means asexual people can be:

  • Abstinent or celibate.
  • Sexually active through masturbation.
  • Sexually active with partners.

Learn what asexuality isn’t. Asexuality is a sexual orientation that’s distinct from heterosexuality, homosexuality, bisexuality, pansexuality, and other orientations. However, asexuality also has nothing to do with biological sex, gender identity, or gender expression. And being asexual doesn’t mean you are aromantic, which means a person feels no romantic attraction to others.

Dating an Asexual Person

Recognize that there are different types of relationships.

Just as there are friendships, mother-daughter relationships, father-son relationships, and innumerable other types of platonic (non-sensual) relationships, so too are there many types of romantic relationships aside from just sexual romantic relationships. Dating an asexual person may open your eyes to new types of relationships, which could include:

  • Romantic non-sexual relationships, which often involve physical affection, cuddling, and commitment.
  • Aromantic non-sexual relationships, which involve a deep commitment to one another. While these relationships can include physical affection, there is no sexual or romantic element.

Communicate openly.

Regardless of the circumstances, dating is always about getting to know someone better, and dating someone who identifies as asexual is no different. The key to any relationship is free and open communication. It’s important to discuss personal boundaries early in any relationship, so that partners know what is acceptable, what’s unacceptable, and what is and isn’t expected of each other. If you are unsure of something, it’s always best to just ask!

  • It’s important not to be offended if someone you’re dating comes out to you as asexual. It’s not an excuse and it’s not an attempt to get out of the relationship. That person is just trying to be honest and open.

Understand that an asexual person can be intimate.

Asexual people often partake in romantic partnerships or relationships, but whether a person is open to physical or sexual intimacy depends on the individual. But dating doesn’t necessarily require physical or sexual interaction, and two people can develop a strong emotional or romantic relationship with or without a sexual element: intimacy is much more than just physical touching or sexual activity.

  • An asexual partner may or may not be open to sexual activity, so it’s important to communicate so that everyone involved is on the same page. Feeling sexual pleasure is different from feeling sexual attraction, and some asexual people can enjoy sex.
  • Conversely, some asexual people are not interested in sex at all, and will not be open to exploring a sexual relationship.

And to finish this, some myths:

Asexual people can’t fall in love.

Many asexuals can feel the full range of romantic emotions, from a slight crush to true love.  It’s just devoid of a sexual component.  Asexuals are not limited to platonic love, either.  When an ace feels love, it can be every bit as complex and deep as the romantic love that anyone else feels.

There is a concept of romantic (or affectional) orientation, which describes who a person is romantically attracted to.  Romantic orientation is separate from sexual orientation, although in many people, their romantic and sexual orientations do happen to coincide.  Common romantic orientations include heteroromantic (romantic attraction toward the opposite gender), homoromantic (romantic attraction toward the same gender), bi/panromantic (romantic attraction toward both/all genders), and aromantic (romantic attraction toward no gender).

Asexual people don’t/can’t have sex.

Most asexual people can have sex, and some of them do. Asexuality is the lack of sexual attraction, not a lack of sexual ability.  Asexuals are physically and physiologically indistinguishable from other people, in other words, in most cases, the equipment is all there and in working order.  If an asexual person is incapable of having sex, it is usually due to some other condition, and not necessarily related to their asexuality.

So, I guess everyone has their own conclusions now as if Jughead can or can’t be in a relationship, can or can’t fall in love, can or can’t have sex. It’s pretty clear to all of us that this is different from the comics so as all the characters Jughead most likely won’t be exactly alike, that doesn’t mean Jughead is or is not asexual or won’t be in a near future.

I finished, hope it helped you.

I have a journal, but what do I write in it?

Look no further! Here are some ideas for keeping a journal.
•The daily journal. This is the stereotypical diary where you write everything! Write how your day was, your secrets, your friends, everything!
•A dream journal. Right when you wake up, grab a pen and start describing every detail from your dream. Doing this helps you to remember your dreams, interpret them, and studies show that it makes you more likely to lucid dream!
•A prayer journal. If you’re religious, this one is perfect for you! Use it to worship and write bible verses, prayers, and keep lists of people you need to pray for so you don’t forget.
•A daily log. You can choose to keep track of your sleeping patterns, exercise, what you eat, the medications you take, and if you have any health problems, you can also keep track of the symptoms you get! You can combine all of these in one journal or keep a separate journal for each log.
•A bullet journal. This is one of the most common journals that people keep. In these, you write your to-do lists, your plans, calendars, upcoming events, etc. This helps to boost your memory, keep organized in life, and gives you a better sense of control.
•A quote journal. Use it to write down your favorite quotes, or just make up your own!
•A weight loss/gain journal. In this one, you can keep track of you weight, your calories, and your exercise habits to make sure you get to the healthy weight you desire.
•An art journal. Use this journal to draw, paint, or create collages or scrapbook pages!
•A travel journal. Take it with you whenever you travel. Whether it’s to another country or just to another city. Jot down your experiences, your road trips, plane rides, cruises, and destinations! Remember to include photos, used travel tickets, a coin from a different currency, a postcard, a souvenir (like a shell or leaf), etc!
•A poetry journal. This is pretty self-explanatory. Write down your favorite poems or create your own!
•A journal for studying. If you’re attending school or a university, you obviously already have a notebook for school stuff. So why not make it more fun? Add stickers, color, and things you need to improve on!
•A journal for your career. This is especially useful if you run a business. Here, you can keep track of important dates, meetings, finances, and more!
•A journal for bills, taxes, and your house. This might sound boring, but it can be very useful! You can write yourself reminders, when you paid for utilities, etc.
•A journal for your sports/hobbies. If you enjoy soccer, swimming, gymnastics, biking, knitting, or art, this would be perfect for you. Whenever you do your sport or hobby, you can write about what you did, what you learned, and how you’ll better your skills. This is a fun way to keep track of progress and achievements!
•A pregnancy journal. It’s okay if you’re already 7 or 8 months along in your pregnancy. It’s never too late to start a pregnancy journal (unless of course, you have already given birth). Write either to your baby or just for yourself. Put in pictures of your ultrasounds, your baby bump, name ideas, etc!
•A journal for your children. Write down everything and give it to your child when she/he turns 18. Keep track of the dates when they lost their first tooth, got an award, broke their first bone, made their first friend, etc! Document everything! Include pictures of your child, schoolwork and drawings created by him/her, and more! Wouldn’t it be cool if you had a journal like that from when you were growing up? You could find out the exact date when you lost your first tooth, or took your first steps or said your first words. Even if your kid is already 13, start one now!
•A journal shared with someone else. Get a journal and pick someone to share it with. Whether it’s a sibling, parent, spouse, cousin, or friend, this will be a great way to keep memories. Write notes to each other, attach pictures of each other, write down funny conversations, and more! Did you get married to this person on July 7th? Write it! Did you meet this person on Christmas Eve? Write it! If the person lives far away, you can mail the book back and forth instead of using individual cards.
•A journal to your lost loved one. Keep a journal where you write to your friend, family member, or pet who passed away. This is very therapeutic and it can help you through your time of grief.
•A journal for lists. Keep lists of your favorite music, movies, books, places, and video games so you can see how your preferences change over time.
•A journal for signatures and autographs. Keep a journal full of signatures and autographs written by family members, friends, or even celebrities! It would be awesome to have a book full of their own personal handwriting to you.
•A journal for your budget. Keep track of your savings, spendings, and earnings!
•A journal for reviews. If you read a book or watch a movie, write a review of it in your journal and rate it.
•An heirloom journal. You can be the start of it! Keep a journal and pass it down from generation to generation and allow your family members to write whatever they want in it. Imagine if you found a journal that was written by your previous ancestors who were your great great great great grandparents? Way too cool!
•A journal for wish lists. Write things you plan on buying in the future. Whether cheap or expensive. Keep a list of songs you want to download, books you want to buy, and more.
•A vent journal. Use this journal whenever you’re feeling a strong emotion. Extreme anger or sadness or fear? Take it out on the pages! Scribble, rant, write angry notes you’ll never send, draw dark pictures, or just vent. SCREAM on those pages and let it out!
Happy journaling! And if you know any more, just comment it down below :)

“I love you.” she said. “I love you that it was the hardest for me to let you walk away so easily. I don’t want to see your back against me and I can’t pretend that it’s alright with me. To hear you said the words which sound like my worst nightmare and seems to threaten my world. I don’t want to listen as those will crush every part of my being to pieces. Words are never enough to describe how much it hurts. I love you, that even if it will take time for me to accept the truth, I will still do the thing that’ll make you happy. Just like what I’ve promised from the very start.” she breathed so hard and stared at his eyes. She looked at her world as she cried silently. She touched his cheek with her hand and put her forehead on his. She closed her eyes and for a moment, all of their precious memories came crashing back. And like diamonds, she buried them deep down and hope that no one will see it except for her. As she opened her eyes, she said the last words she thought she will never say, “I am letting you go. Yet I will never say goodbye. Because I still believe that, someday, we will meet again. And I hope, that maybe then, you’ll be happier. Maybe then, I’ve moved on. Maybe then, my heart is whole again.” With that, she took a step back and turned her back on him. She started walking away and looked at the only star in the sky. She smiled, and as her tears kept on falling down, she whispered, “I love you.” Again and again until her eyes got tired of crying.

Considering all the trauma blogs I follow, 99% of the time I see the word triggered on my blog it’s in the context of explaining why ‘triggered’ jokes are a pile of bullshit. We’ve already stopped using it.

How else do we explain why sometimes the sound of a car can make our heart stop, or why someone raising their voice can make us bee-line for the closest exit? “It got to me,” we say. “It reminded me of something,” we say. I was uncomfortable, it was weird, I don’t know what happened, don’t worry about it. “I’m fine,” we say. I’m fine now.

I say “triggered,” and react shame. I use a good word to describe the intimacy of how I hurt and why, a word that says it all without having to re-open the wound, air the dirty laundry, whatever, and now when I say, “That’s triggering,” all I can think is: I really am a walking cliche aren’t I? But that’s false, the whole thing. If someone hears me say triggered and can’t sidestep the trend of dismissing those who’ve lived through trauma, then it’s not my problem to worry about, it’s theirs.

Believe it or not, I’m pretty done carrying shame that doesn’t belong to me. I’m triggered like a gun, like an earthquake, a fucking seismic event, and that’s just nature, not something to be apologized for.


I still can’t get over how Alex is at a loss for words about describing Maggie. “She’s so-” like there aren’t words big enough or perfect enough to describe how she feels about Maggie and how important she is to her. You can see her light up thinking about her. You can see the warmth and comfort wash over her as she pictures Maggie and describes her. “She’s smart, tough, beautiful,” then Alex repeats “beautiful” for emphasis. It is Maggie’s inner and outer beauty that makes her “so beautiful”. Maggie is a beauty that she has never seen before. She is a beautiful light that helps Alex see her inner beauty, like Kara said “so are you”, as well as making the world a brighter more hopeful beautiful place.
