how do i even tag this properly

What I really love is how Tsuyu has surpassed the bnha fandom and like,, everyone knows and loves her. I have seen so many supportive posts that are like “I hope the frog girl from that one anime is having a good day” I really love that. It is so pure and good. Tsuyu truly deserves this.

I’m actually terrified at the implications this might have. They’re only testing it on autoimmune disorders right now but that comment shows the jumps people could make. How soon before they test it on an autistic child with their parents’ “permission”? How soon before they try and find a way to determine in the womb whether we’ll be autistic or not and edit our genes before we’re even born so that we fit into their perfect little society properly?

Don’t get me wrong, I think that it’s amazing that they’re doing this for disorders that can kill, but in the article they made a point on how these people rely on their parents until they die, and basically how much of a burden they are, and it was very easy to draw a parallel between that and what people say about autistic people.

I’m excited about this leap in science, But I’m also scared.

Here’s the article.

please help spread this around!

participate in the survey by clicking here!  

so, after having a skype interview with inon zur (!!!) and mailing back and forth with sam hulick (!!!) and tobias lilja (!!!), i’ve finally finished my survey where i’d love you to answer to what you feel when listening to their music.

this is research i’m doing for my essay for my final year as a sound- and music production student, and through this analysis i want to be able to find out what type of emotions and associations the music transmits to players with or without prior knowledge of the game or scene to which the music is intended, and see if the results corresponds with the composer’s original intentions!

please spread this around if you can!

thank you for reading! :)

Title: Tiny Little Mouth Kisses

Rating: Not rated

Word count: 11,2k

Summary: 

“Second of all, how do you want to kiss me? Like properly?”“Erm…” Now it’s Harry’s turn to stutter and be nervous. Louis fights a smile, they’re even now. “Like, you know? When you get angry you look really… um, adorable? Like, ugh, you pout and… oh god, do I really need to say it?” Louis nods. “Oh my god, well, okay, it’s my fault anyway. So, when you’re being pouty, it looks like, oh god, you want to be kissed? Does it even make sense? No, no, it looks like your lips want, need to be kissed. Just a small kiss. Baby kiss. Tiny. Little. Whatever.”

Honest to God I am not responsible for your fucking breakdowns or the fact you ran into content you either cannot handle or find uncomfortable/disturbing/distasteful because the internet is a clusterfuck if you aren’t careful, and also Tumblr is no longer functional when it comes to tagging, even when people do tag properly.

You are responsible for your media consumption, and how you will handle it– I am not, I am not your parent or your guardian.

I’m sorry your life sucks and it decided to hand you a bad deck– but everyone has experienced something, everyone has been fucked by life–
and surprisingly the majority of us are trying to handle it properly, are trying to be mature about how we go about online, because our experiences and feelings don’t justify our horrid behaviors and actions we can dish out to complete strangers.

Stop expecting complete strangers to actually care about you too– I mean yes, we can be sympathetic to your situation, but that does not mean we are going to bend to your feelings and personal opinions just because. 

Just, stop, fucking stop– get off Tumblr, get off the internet if you cannot be mature about it, be respectful and at least decent to others who don’t share the same views or likes as you– stop justifying your bullying because your feelings are hurt, because someone hurt you in the past– we can’t do anything to fix that, and screaming at us about the fiction we enjoy isn’t going to fix what happened to you, nor is it going to keep anyone else from becoming a victim.

I’m sorry, but that isn’t how the real world works.

I love to imagine the Shards’ participation in the creation or discovery of ‘humanity’ on their worlds, because really, some of these local versions of humans are so far removed from Yolen’s original ‘humans’…

——————————–

Devotion and Dominion: well, we’ve created nice, normal humans here for the most part, but what about the ones too packed with Investiture to stay that way?

Devotion and Dominion: … [look at each other]

Dominion: …aesthetic?

Devotion: aesthetic

Ruin: okay, good, we’ve pretty much replicated humans right (I think) with the addition of some cool new metal powers. we contributed equally. right? right. and I get to kill them all later

Preservation: [looks up from imbuing humans with some of his own self]

Preservation: ….yes.

Endowment: huh, there’s already people here? imma pick the ones I like and make them SUPER TALL and SMOKIN’ HOT

Honor: dear. dear, can we please try to make normal humans

Cultivation: NO NO NO okay look at this if we cross this strain with the natives then they get STONE FINGERNAILS. LITERAL STONE.

Honor: dear

Cultivation: and if we incorporate this version then instead of stone nails you get hair and skin that’s metallic gold HOW COOL IS THAT

Honor: honey

Cultivation: AND THESE ONES GET SHELL-CRUNCHING MOLAR PLATES AND SUPER JAW STRENGTH

Honor: please

Cultivation: and they’re all gonna display hair colour inheritance by PERCENTAGE

Cultivation: and that’s not even getting to the Invested ones

Honor: …

Cultivation: now get over here and do your bit

Honor: …yes dear.

MASTERLIST


How do people wake up early? And even more intriguing: how do they it?

Mornings are always a difficult time of the day for you, since you always want to sleep in (until noon is still sleeping in, right?).

You have a meeting this morning, at seven a.m. Doesn’t Steve know that sleeping keeps the skin healthy? - and your mood in a better state for anyone around? Dressed properly and your files in hand, you go to the kitchen in the compound. You deserve a reward for getting up so early, so something sweet is a good breakfast choice.

The donuts on top of the table are like a mirage. Are they real or are you this tired? You walk to the counter and touch the box. Solid plastic, from a grocery store. A box of donuts with a note on top. Wait. Note?

Hope you like those, doll. Went to train with Sam. Have a nice meeting with Stevie.

See you later.

Bucky

You smile at the note and fold it into your pocket, reaching for the box with your other hand and taking your favorite favor out. You almost moan at your first bite, the sweet thing is exactly what you need at the moment.

The smell of coffee suddenly catches your nose. As your brain is still working slowly, you decide that some might actually be a good idea. You take a mug from the cabinet and pour yourself some steaming black liquid from the pot. It’s a strong scent or maybe you’re just too close to it. Either way, you mix sugar and take a sip.

Half the mug and another donut down, you’re wide awake.

When the mug is finished, and you feel a pinch in your head, the beginning of a headache, you think that maybe so much coffee wasn’t a good idea.

Another pinch gets the back of your head, making you wince and hold onto the counter so you wouldn’t fall.

Dark spot start blurring your vision and soon you’re seeing the kitchen in a horizontal position, being so numb that you don’t even feel the fall or the impact.

Your eyelids become heavy and you can’t help but close your eyes and let darkness take you.


The beeping sound is annoying even before you open your eyes. It gets faster when you woke up though, so the squeeze in your hand was a comforting gesture.

Bucky patiently waits until you were ready to face the world, holding your hand with both of his and rubbing the pad of his thumb on your palm. Your other hand has an IV.

You open one eyes to look at Bucky, who has his eyes trained on you and messy hair all over his head. He must have been pulling while you slept. The window of the room shows the dark sky outside.

After F.R.I.D.A.Y. confirms you’re as good as you can be and contacts Dr. Cho to confirm her prognosis, Bucky visibly relaxes.

“What happened?” you croak out, opening the second eye.

He moves to seat on the edge of the chair, detaching one hand from yours to pull some hair behind your ear.

“You’re in the medical wing,” he says, gently, “The story behind it can be funny or tragic, depends on your point of you,” Bucky smirks, but it’s wobbly.

“What about my point of view?”

He brings a cup of water to your mouth and answers while you drink.

“I hope you laugh, doll.”

“Okay,” you say, now much clearer, “What happened?”

His finger is still rubbing at your hand, a soothing gesture for you and for Bucky. He’s always uneasy when you’re in the medical wing.

“Do you remember this morning? When you had to wake up early for a meeting with Steve?” With a nod, Bucky keeps talking, “There was coffee in the pot, right?”

Bucky Barnes doesn’t fidget, HYDRA made sure the Winter Soldier always knew how to control 100% of his body. His eyes though, you could read his eyes as if his emotions were words written on his blue-grey orbs. You knew he felt guilty because of what happened to you, someway, somehow.

“Yes, and thank you for that. And the donuts. Especially for the donuts.”

“I should apologize for the coffee, doll,” Bucky’s voice is barely inexistent, his eyes cast down. And you were right about him feeling guilty.

“Wait. I got sent to infirmary because of coffee?”

“Yes.”

“Of course it had to be me,” you sighed.

“It’s a valid reason, since it wasn’t normal coffee.”

“Pray tell, Bucky, was it magical coffee?” You asked, quirking an eyebrow at him.

Bucky shakes his head twice. “Not magical, but definitely stronger.”

You squeezed his hand, “Okay, you made super strong coffee. We like different kinds of coffee, or rather, I can’t drink the usual amount I drink when you make it. We’ll carry on,” you shrug.

He sighs, “It’s not only stronger. It’s supposed to wake me up,” Bucky explains.

Oh. Oh. Oh.

“A super coffee for a super soldier,” you conclude, “Now it makes sense.”

Bucky nods, your hand in his as his thumb works on your skin.

“It’s still not your fault though,” you tell him, placing your free hand on his chin and lightly tilting his head up. “It’s no one’s fault. It’s just coffee, and, now that I know, I can be aware of what might happen.”

Bucky looks at you with sad eyes. “I’m still sorry.”

“I forgive you for something that wasn’t your fault, Bucky,” you smiled, leaning in and kissing his lips.

He makes a surprised sound at your words, the beginning of a laugh forming in his throat. It usually is a beautiful sound, and the laugh meant that Bucky won’t blame himself (so much) anymore, but all you want at the moment is Bucky’s lips against yours.

A knock on the wooden door makes you break away, Steve’s face and hand holding a tray of cookies are visible. The rest of him is hidden behind the frame.

“Cookies?”

You smirk at him. “Good think you got food, Rogers. I’m starving.”

“Coming, ma’am.”

The tray is enormous, but it doesn’t last long between two super soldiers and someone who hasn’t eaten during an entire day. You talk to Steve and Bucky during your ‘meal’, conversation flowing easily as ever between the three of you.

Even though you feel better, you’ll have to spend another day at the medical wing. Apparently the coffee did some damage. It’ll be uncomfortable and long, but with Bucky as your personal nurse, you can’t really complain.

Before Steve leaves, leaving you and Bucky to some privacy, you call him.

“Steve?”

Steve turns to you, one hand on the doorknob. “Yes, [Y/n]?”

You’re perfectly serious when you speak. “No more morning meetings.”

“Fair enough.”

author’s note: track the tag crowns ft calum for updates!!


“What do you think I should do when I get my girlfriend mad, princess?” Calum asked right after you sat across him, not even bothering to look away from his phone or greet you properly. You had to admit to yourself that you were offended that he didn’t ask about your day or how you were doing (and that sounded really petty), but at least Calum was talking to you.

“I don’t know,” You raised your eyebrow in amusement, examining the stressed boy before you. “What’s she mad about?”

“Apparently, people took pictures of us while we were on the balcony at your party,” He sighed, leaning back into the booth chair as he practically tossed his phone onto the table in blatant frustration. “She saw them, she threw a fit and I got the silent treatment,” Calum chuckled at the events that occurred a few hours ago, just moments after he woke up from his slumber.

Chicken Anon!

I don’t know how to agree with you any more than I do lol - there is NOTHING WRONG with investing some to gain some. Even massive artists like Jay-Z partner with companies who buy a million+ copies of their albums and present it to their customers on various platforms for free - this is how both his Magna Carta album and the most recent 4:44 (!!) album went platinum within a week. 

I’m sure there are rules when it comes to essentially buying views/actually buying views - and also a kind of stigma? - but I don’t doubt it happens. I mean Korea’s soft culture wave is a huge part of it’s economy, so I don’t think they’d look too harshly at things that benefit both the artist and the industry.

That being said, we’re talking about TS here..I mean it was only this most recent B.A.P comeback that they were even able to upload a video correctly - tagging, thumbnail, category etc - and that’s probably really only because of fan projects  basically goading them with info on how to do it properly lol.

Should they have more views on YouTube? Absolutely, (B.A.P should also have a separate YT channel.. but that’s a gripe for another day lol) and informing TS of ways to get those views could be very helpful, but unfortunately nothing will really change until, like you said, we get some recognition going again.

I mean, if you think we don’t do as well as we should on YouTube, we do even worse on Naver. And Naver is important, even trending on there is a big deal.

And B.A.P does trend! Everyone anticipates when the boys perform at big shows or festivals because they stand out (how could they not? ^^) and people always seem to look them up - there was recently a massive spike in Honeymoon’s MV views after their Soribada performance - but unless people fall immediately in love with them and move straight to stanning - there’s nothing much TS provides for the mere fan - like “oh I enjoyed HONEYMOON? Let me check them out on… meet&greet? A couple of radio interviews? An obscure app or two? ONE bts video from TS? I mean, I say this a lot but BLESS HEYO TV. 

But even with Heyo TV’s hours of goodness, there isn’t enough new content to keep potential fans interested, especially in Korea, where hour-long shows with funny hosts and flashy editing are de rigueur.

So right now, I’m slightly less worried about YouTube views - only because we do alright..mainly because B.A.P’s A+ MV’s are kind of the only anchor we have, the only really consistent content we get (except of course, for the regular updates from our social media-savvy darlings himdae ^^)

SO TS PLEASE we need some of that sweet, sweet content and then eyes (👀) on that content - and yes, like Yongguk said himself, they just need everyone’s anticipation - the boys will do the rest ^^ 

WoW We're Nerds

AO3: http://archiveofourown.org/works/11244396

Alex… Didn’t have a lot of friends. Between having a “super weird” little sister and being a total nerd whose only sporting activity was surfing (which wasn’t one of her school’s sports) it was difficult to get people to legitimately like her (and not just to use for the answers on the homework). No, Alex’s best (and probably only real) friend was Maggie Sawyer, someone she’d never met in real life before but was still closer to than anyone at school (besides maybe Kara).

They’d met when they were randomly teamed up to run a dungeon while playing WoW and had bonded over the course of several runs when it turned out they’re team members didn’t want to take them seriously because they were girls. (Alex had laughed when they decided to dump them halfway through one of the harder dungeons they were running, leaving them without a tank or a healer for what probably lasted over an hour with the que that night.)

They had kept in contact afterwards, randomly going to where the other one was working on quests to help get through them faster or (on one of the days when Alex was feeling like crap after some kids at school had decided it’d be funny to toss her backpack in the school pool) they had spend the evening tag-teaming higher level Horde players in Legion. (Because it didn’t matter how bad a mood she was in she wasn’t going to be the 110th level jerk who went around attacking newbies.)

That of course escalated into spending hours upon hours running Ashran cause Alex really wanted to get enough honor points to buy the new PvP gear they’d just released with the new expansion and Maggie was happy to tag along for the ride since she apparently “had nothing better to do.”

This in turn led to them exchanging phone numbers and spending hours on the phone just talking. Maggie complaining about her school’s truly terrible lab equipment, “how the hell am I supposed to know in the stuff has dissolved properly? I can’t even see inside the stupid thing there are so many cracks!” and Alex going on about her classmates, “if he ever tries anything like that again I’ll mess him up, no one messes around with my sister’s feelings and gets away with it…”

And that led to… Other things… (You’re dating her Danvers, just say it)… So she totally realized that she’d developed non-platonic feelings for her best friend. Which had led to Alex ignoring her for a week because she didn’t know what to say, until she was suddenly forced to figure it out cause Maggie had called Kara and now her sister was forcing her to actually deal with her problems and… Apparently Maggie is gay… “seriously Danvers? My username is Sapphic-Intentions, I couldn’t make it gayer if I tried.” And has a thing for her… “I’ve only been dropping hints for the last three months.” Which ended with the two of them dating. (Alex wasn’t sure if she was embarrassed or relieved when she told her sister and the younger girl’s response was to shout “finally” and start flying around her room).

And now, after four months of dating she was finally going to get to meet her girlfriend. (Kara had offered many times to fly Alex to Nebraska but she wasn’t sure how she’d have been able to play that one off to her girlfriend without admitting her sister was an alien so she’d been forced to wait until spring break to finally see her). And she was a mixture of ridiculously excited and super nervous

“Are you sure I should wear this? Maybe I should wear something less revealing…” Alex made a move to go back to her closet (not the one she came out of) but Kara quickly grabbed her wrist and pulled her back before she could stress change again.

“Alex it is hot outside and we live at the beach. Besides a t-shirt and knee length shorts do not really count as revealing clothing. I have seen you wear less than that at your surfing competitions on a regular basis.” Kara pointed out, gesturing rather haphazardly at her outfit. Alex groaned.

“I know… I just don’t want her to think I’m like… Angling for something…” Kara’s eyebrows scrunched together and a crinkle appeared on her forehead.

“What could you be… Angling… For by wearing less clothing?” Alex sputters, remembering that her mom had decided to skip of that particular conversation about human social interactions and she was probably going to need to fill her sister in before someone took advantage of her cluelessness.

“You know what… You’re right, nothing to worry about… We’ll talk about it later… Let’s finish panicking about meeting my girlfriend.” Kara rolled her eyes and wrapped her arms around her sister.

“Look, you two have already established a great foundational bond, meeting is not going to change that. The biggest thing you need to worry about is ‘not turning into a big gay mess around her’ as you put it.” Alex sighed and leaned her head against Kara’s shoulder.

“You’re right… Come on let’s get down to the docks before we’re late and she thinks we bailed on her or something.” Alex pulled Kara to her feet and the sisters made their way outside and started walking down the street to where Alex had agreed to meet up with her girlfriend when they made plans for her to come see her.

Alex was practically buzzing the entire walk and Kara teased her, saying it was probably a good thing she wasn’t the one with the ability to fly otherwise she might have floated off. Alex rolled her eyes and sped up slightly in her haste to get to their meeting place, causing Kara to laugh.

Though Alex would never willingly admit it, she froze the second she laid eyes on her girlfriend. And not in the “holy shit I’m really terrified of meeting this girl” kind of way but in the “holy shit I’m really gay and my girlfriend is a total babe” kind of way. Because she’d never really understood the whole hype about finding “cowgirls” attractive, but damn, the other girl was decked out in jeans, a red checkered flannel (very gay), cowgirl boots and a straw hat leaning against her pickup truck and it was really hot. (She knew that Maggie was from Nebraska, it just didn’t occur to her that her super nerdy gamer girlfriend was basically a cowgirl by day.

Thankfully Maggie wasn’t facing her (she was busy looking out at the ocean for what Alex would later realize was for the first time) and didn’t notice her brain short circuiting at the very sight of her, unfortunately Kara was standing right next to her and definitely noticed her sister’s misstep.

“You okay?” Kara whispered quietly into her ear, clearly trying her best to be supportive in a less fangirly fashion.

“Yep… Just… Really fucking gay…” Alex whispered back and Kara simply laughed.

“Yes, you are a ‘gay disaster’ as it were. Now you should probably go and meet her before she notices you just standing here drooling.” Alex slapped Kara’s shoulder (which hurts) and slowly makes her way towards the other girl who had still managed not to notice her and she spends the entire thirty seconds it takes to cross the parking lot mentally coaching herself on what to say so she doesn’t sound like an idiot when she starts talking (or more likely rambling cause she’s a little nervous).

Naturally the first thing she does when she reaches her is trip and fall.

She closes her eyes cause they’re out in public and there’s no way Kara could catch her so she braces herself for the impending crash. Only to hear a squeak and feel a pair of rather muscular arms wrap around her waist and hold her up off the ground.

“Shit, are you… Alex?” Alex recognizes her voice instantly after so many nights of staying up late (but not as late as Maggie) on the phone talking and she feels her face flush bright red as she cracks an eye open to gaze up at her girlfriend.

“Ummm… Hi?” Alex awkwardly waved up at her and watched as her face transformed into a soft, rather amused smile as she gazed down at her. “Sorry I, uh, tripped…”

“I could tell.” Maggie moved one of her arms from around Alex so she could brush the hair out of her face before coming to gently rest her hand over her cheek,

“Am I gonna… Like… Stand up or something?” Alex mumbled, blushing even harder as she realized Maggie still hadn’t pulled her back onto her feet. Maggie smiled even deeper and bit her lip teasingly.

“I don’t know, I kinda like having you in my arms like this.” Maggie winked and Alex just about swooned, her insides turning to mush as she finally wrapped her arms around her neck to help steady herself.

“You… Are not allowed to be as nerdy as I am and still be so smooth… And attractive… That’s not fair… You can’t have it all…” Maggie laughed and pulled Alex onto her feet only to immediately pull her into a lingering hug.

“You forgot I have an equally nerdy, very attractive dork for a girlfriend. That’s definitely a part of it.” Alex turns away, blushing and Maggie reaches up to kiss her on the cheek. “I’m really glad I’m here.”

“I’m really glad you’re here too.” Alex bent down slightly and kissed Maggie on the forehead.

“Okay. I am glad everyone is happy everyone is here but I really need to go home and finish up my homework so can I assume that you aren’t going to kidnap her or inflict any bodily harm to her if I leave her with you?” They both jump when the other person starts talking and Alex realizes that at some point Kara had come over to the truck and was now addressing Maggie, who seemed to take the semi-threatening teenaged in stride.

“Yes Kara, she’s in very good hands.” Maggie winked at her and Alex groaned slightly before burying her face in the other woman’s neck.

“Okay, have a good weekend and I will see you on the Monday, Alex.” Alex smiled at her (thankfully) oblivious sister and waved goodbye as she took off at a normal human speed down the sidewalk.

“Come on Danvers, let’s get over to the hotel. We’ve only got three days til I have to get back and we’re gonna make ‘em count… Starting with running Ashran again cause I need that new two-handed sword they just released.” Alex laughed.

“You’re such a nerd babe.”
