how does it even get like this

Has anyone else noticed how discoursers have started using people’s first names very heavily, if someone’s name is in their about? Does this wig anybody else out?

Like, when you’re talking about somebody you plainly don’t know in person, and even more plainly loathe, being all, “Aiden just reeeally likes posting ahistorical bullshit,” or sarcastically saying, “Rose is at it again,” is just nails on a chalkboard to me. It’s so obviously trying to get at them.

Chuuya would make the most terrible father because he is hotheaded and a mafia and alcholic so I think he should just let Koyou adopt his baby since he wouldn't raise the baby right. At least even if she is mafia she is a woman who knows how to raise children and has experience. If not then baby will see father always drunk. That is bad. Baby will have a sad life. Dazai is okay because he has the Agency.

I’m going to be honest here and say that, while Chuuya does enjoy his wine a lot, I feel like he doesn’t spend all of his time drinking, or else he would never get any work done, nor would he be maintaining his status as an executive very well. That, and, canonically, Chuuya is a lightweight when it comes to alcohol, meaning he gets drunk easily and the effects are almost always obvious right away.

In any scene apart from those where he is seen actively drinking, Chuuya is visibly sober.

When I write Chuuya for the AU, I draw from other aspects of his character, such as his loyalty to his “family”, the mafia, his kindness towards his subordinates, and his general persona from the point of view of others in the mafia. There is also plenty of evidence to show that Chuuya genuinely cares about those around him in the mafia, that he is good at his job, and though ostensibly not a good person morally due to his work, Chuuya is a good guy. 

He is a good character with good qualities and, yes, he does have flaws, but, please, do not degrade him to a “wine drinking hat rack” like so many people have.

My English teacher is from new Zealand so I can say roadhog doesn't sound even slightly like he was meant to be from new Zealand. It doesn't mean shit because the mask distorts his voice and blizzard has made it pretty clear he is. but with blizzard making such an effort to get everyone else voice actors that properly represent their nationalities it does seem rather unfortunate.

Do you know how hard it is to do a fuckin deep ass metal voice while throwing an accent on top?
Very hard.
But yes, they could have casted somebody much different, but the current va’s voice is fuckin perfect for Hoggie. Really lacking in the fact that there is no accent, but perfect.

Do you have any advice on making friends? I never can make any it's really sad

this is definitely tricky to answer, purely because of how different everyone is, and how making friends doesn’t necessarily have a formula because like…there are people i’m really close with now that i hated at first or never thought we’d get along. but i can definitely try to give you some tips that work for me!

  1. know your own interests. so many people i talk to say stuff like “i’m boring i have no hobbies” but like. everyone does. whether it’s reading or coding or taking pictures or writing or watching movies or playing games or cooking. your hobby doesn’t have to be crazy to be interesting or even to be considered a hobby. if you can write down a few things you enjoy doing, it gives you something to talk about. i’ve become friends with people because we can talk about one of our favorite shows (like parks and rec) or video game (for me it’s portal)

anonymous asked:

which game has your favorite battle, job, and leveling system and how does the ffxv battle system compare with other games you played?

HONESTLY??? I reeeeeeally like the CSB and Paradigm System in XIII, but if it had the refinements that XIII-2 implemented it’d be even better (especially changing party leaders and getting rid of the paradigm shift animations). I also really enjoyed X’s CTB system in terms of something more turn-based rather than action-based.

In terms job and leveling systems, once again the Paradigm System in XIII and Dresspheres in X-2 (changing jobs on the fly is amazing). I haven’t played the IZJS version of XII (but I will soon with the HD remaster!!!!!!!!) but I’m sure I’ll like it more than the original License Board system. I really like the idea of characters having strict skill sets and strengths and weaknesses as opposed to everyone having access to everything, such as in VIII or XII. In that respect, the Sphere Grid in X is great, but it gets a little less interesting into late and post-story gameplay when you start completing everyone’s sections.

I’m also a fan of straight forward leveling and gaining abilities at certain levels like in IV.

All that said, I enjoyed XV’s battle system. I was never really good at action RPGs so I didn’t know how good I’d be at it (especially after playing the Episode Duscae demo), but the final version in the actual game really streamlined a lot of things. I think it would have been much better, though, if you could switch control between all four guys. That was something that I thought was cool in those gameplay mock ups in the Versus trailers and was disappointed they took out in XV. I get that XV is Noctis’ story and the entire game (and XV universe, really) revolves around him, but there are so many interesting things about XV and honestly Noctis isn’t really one of them to me.

I guess relegating player control to just one character in a party of three or four during battle is just something I don’t think is good game design, especially in an RPG? I get that fast-paced combat is the direction the series is going so AI to control your other party members is really a necessity, but I think allowing players to switch control between characters keeps gameplay interesting. Or if you’re going to force players to just one character at least don’t call it game over if there are other party members still alive (looking at you, XIII and XV).

So lately, I've been thinking about giving up writing. I love it so much but i don't think I'm cut out for it anymore. I haven't been writing any stories due to the fact that I have no inspiration and all I've written is stuff like journal entries and stuff like that. How can I get rid of these feelings and get back on track?

I’m sorry to hear that! 

Losing confidence in your work and inspiration happens to everyone. It’s important to remember that your work does not have to be perfect. Honestly, your writing doesn’t even have to be good. There is time for that later, when you edit and revise, to make things sound good. Right now, focus on just getting everything down. If you write anything at all, that’s better than writing nothing. Let yourself make mistakes, let yourself fail. Ultimately, the more you write, the more you will learn. So the #1 thing I recommend is to forgive yourself. Forgive yourself for not being inspired, or for taking some time off. Forgive yourself for not being perfect. Then, get back out there! 

Here’s a few posts that might help: Writers Block, Start Writing Again,  and Returning to Cold Works.

I hope this helps!  

Fic idea 3:

Lance gets hurt on a mission (not that bad tho) and Pidge or Hunk finds a flower that they’ve read about and they’re POSITIVE that a tea brewed from its leaves has antibacterial properties so even though Lance is skeptical they’re like “trust me” and of course he does

and of course it’s the wrong plant and this one is poisonous and they’re freaking out like “oh god I poisoned Lance”

And bonus points if Lance sees how upset it’s making them and in a fevered, delirious state thinks it’s a good idea to downplay his symptoms until he ends up collapsing with a fever and arrhythmia

There was a little boy sitting in his chair in the parlor.

“Um… hello,” said Stanford Pines, completely unsure what to say to this unexpected guest. The boy had white hair that was wild and as pale as moonlight, and a smile full of sharp, gleaming white teeth.

“You have a big head,” stated the boy cheerfully.

Stanford frowned at this rude comment. The boy clearly hadn’t been taught proper manners.

“How did you get in here,” said Stanford stiffly.

“The nice man with the big nose let me in,” said the boy, who suddenly stretched out a pair of black, insect-like wings and began flying around Stanford’s head. All at once, the boy began asking questions.

“Is this your house? How old are you? Do you have a dog? Two dogs? Do you even like dogs? What’s your name? Why does your hair do that? Why do you wear that ugly sweater? How come you get to have extra fingers? Are you Mr. McGucket’s husband?”

Stanford blushed at this last question, and shouted, “Fiddleford! There’s a fairy running loose in the house!”

“I know,” called back Fiddleford from the kitchen, “I’m fixing him some dinner!”

“What? Why are you fixing him dinner,” called back Ford, who caught the giggling child in his hands and was holding him by the waist.

“’Cause I’m hungry!” cried the child happily, and he took a quick nip at one of Ford’s fingers.

“Ouch! Don’t bite me, you little brat,” snapped Ford, which he only felt a little guilty about when the boy’s eyes began to well up with tears.

“Mr. Fiddleford! He called me a brat,” the little boy wailed, a few of the lamps in the parlor began to flicker dangerously as he sobbed.

Fiddleford ran into the room, shot a very confused and irritated Ford an apologetic smile, and took the little fairy child out of his hands.

“Now Puck, were you or were you not just flying around pestering Ford and biting his hand just a few seconds ago,” Fiddleford gently chided the boy as he hugged him tight against his chest.

“Y-yeah,” sniffled the boy, Puck.

“Now don’t you think that was a might bratty?” asked Fiddleford sternly.

“…. Maybe a little,” agreed Puck; the fairy child flew out of Fiddleford’s grasp and, gently, took one of Ford’s hands and gave it a kiss.

“I’m sorry, Mr. Fiddleford’s not-husband,” said Puck with a sweet smile.

“That… that’s alright,” sighed Ford after sharing a significant look at his partner.

“Now why don’t you go wash up before we have spaghetti,” Fiddleford told the boy, who, after cheerfully shouting “Spaghetti!” loud enough to rattle the walls, flew down the hall to the washroom, leaving the two men alone.

“I know he’s a bit of a rascal,” said Fiddleford, who grabbed onto Ford’s hand and gave it a gentle squeeze, “but he’s a real sweetheart, believe me, darlin’.”

“How did he get here,” asked Ford, still a little dumbstruck by all of this.

“It’s a… long story,” said Fiddleford, scratching the back of his head, “Oh, but Ford, he ain’t got anywhere else to go. He needs a place to stay.”

Ford wanted to protest, but, something in Fiddleford’s eyes told him that there was no going back. Besides, even Ford couldn’t throw a child out on the street, even if he was a rambunctious, biting fairy.

“Well… I suppose we’ll talk things over at dinner,” said Ford, knowing full well he was getting into something completely out of his depth. 

So Apollo likes to tease dogs by nipping their rumps. He’ll also grab their tails. I believe he does it to get dogs to chase him. He’ll even do it to dogs that are super unconfident and they’ll yelp, he doesn’t listen to their cues and I honestly don’t know how to train it out of him. What are your thoughts on a basket muzzle at the park (at least temporary)? It’ll keep him safe and other dogs from getting scared of him/attacking him. If you guys also have ideas on training him to stop doing that, I’ll take it! I’m desperate. Training him to stop humping is 100x easier than this xD

How do the nordics show fear?

Iceland: Gets irritated and snaps at people

Denmark: Brushes it off and tries to act like nothing is wrong, might even start laughing nervously

Norway: Starts shrinking in on himself and tries to get away from other people

Finland: Definitely does the nervous laugh but might also get really aggressive and in your face

Sweden: A lot of self-comfort gestures like rubbing his arm and he gets teary-eyed. He’s going to slouch down and won’t look anyone in the eye

  • What she says: I'm fine.
  • What she means: Once again, Hunk was delegated to the role of comedy relief in the season 2 trailer. Hunk is so much more than this. He deserves better. But no. The only glimpse we even really get of him is when he's snoozing and then Keith wakes him up. That and like one glimpse of him dropping down some tunnel thing with Keith and Lance. He should be kicking ass and taking names. He should be shown doing cool maneuvers in his lion like how Pidge, Lance, and Shiro are. Hunk is so smart, so helpful, and so vital to the team. Why does he not get more screen time. Wake up, Dreamworks. Give us more Hunk.
A lot of people don’t understand why a girl would keep letting the same corruptive, toxic young boy back into her life when he keeps somehow hurting her each time. People don’t understand how a girl as pure and delicate as her would even fall for a boy and sinful and disastrous as him. People don’t understand why she loves him even when he breaks her whole world apart. And it is hard to understand I get it but most people are just looking at the surface of their love, their love is so much deeper than that. He may hurt her, but nobody can make her smile like he does. He may break her but nobody can pick back up the pieces like he does. He is the reason that life isn’t so bland and normal, he’s the reason she actually feels emotions, he’s the reason she met one of her best friends, he’s the reason she’s been able to actually experience real life and not some fantasy her mother grew her up to see life as, he’s the reason that she is able to know what real love is and how it feels. To other people it may seem like he’s the only reason she expirences pain, but he’s not. He may bring her some pain but he brings her happiness more than anything else and she does the same for him. She’s the reason he’s been able to love again, she’s the reason he doesn’t have nightmares at night, she’s the reason that he has been able to not always see the bad things in life, she’s the reason he ever smiles at all anymore. In everything there has ever been there has been flaws. Nothing is ever going to always be perfect. They’ve learned that especially…they’ve been able to see past their flaws and just love another for who they are. Because they know without eachother their lives would be even more corrupt then they are with each other. They know that without the bad you can’t really have the good. They know that you have to expirence some darkness before you can fully expirence the life. And because of all of this that’s why their love works. People may not understand it and how their love works but they don’t need them to, frankly at times they don’t even understand it themselves. But what they do know is their love is stronger than anything they’ve ever known and that they don’t ever want to loose eachother because their lives are better now with each other then they’ve ever been.

so uh….I just discovered a very odd bug

so I went to my likes to reblog a post and I got someone else’s likes. these are not mine. I do not follow ruinedchildhood

and when I refresh I get someone who’s been liking kpop memes I guess

is this happening to anyone else

but keith comforting lance about his insecurities?

  • like,, lance makes a tiny comment he maybe didn’t mean for anyone to hear, something like how he’s not really needed, how kinda sorta useless he is to the rest of them, and his voice is sarcastic and joking except not really and keith hears it and just knows 
  • and he’s a little confused because why would lance think he’s not worthy of his spot on the team? but then he gets a little angry too because lance??? should never think he isn’t important, and the fact that he does, it irritates keith in a way he’s not entirely familiar with, even though it is lance 
  • so keith stalks up to him, and maybe a little harshly jabs his finger in lance’s chest and gets right in his face and tells him how great he is, how important, how they couldn’t make it without him
    • considering how angry he sounds you’d think he’d be saying something the complete opposite. his words and tone completely contradict each other. and his face is red and he’s really really close to lance 
  • who is just staring at him? stunned ??? because since when did keith care so much? little does lance know he always did. and then a little smile blooms and he makes a stupid snide comment like “wow keith! i didn’t know i was your role model, your hero, the light of your life. i’m so flattered.” 
  • keith scoffs but he’s fighting a smile too because this is lance, confident lance, lance making jokes and being himself again. he’s more than fine with it so long as lance is working on believing what keith said 
  • or just… keith!!! comforting lance!!! genuinely believing in him!!! giving him really awkward compliments!!! 
    • “um. grool shot, lance.” 
    • “grool?” 
    • “grool. i mean to say cool and then i started to say great instead.” 
    • lance making fun of him for it but also blushing like crazy because he can’t deal 
    • he starts using “grool” regularly 

what she says: I’m fine

what she means: I don’t understand how Sportacus’ crystal works. It goes off whenever one of the puppets is about to fall out of a tree, but if Sportacus doesn’t rescue them they’re fine. How troublesome does trouble have to be to count??? Robbie gets physically hurt (falls, bumps into things, gets hit with balls) all the time without the crystal going off, even when he’s very nearby to Sportacus. Aometimes Spartacus knows who’s in trouble, and sometimes he doesn’t, but he always finds them somehow?? Then there’s also the question of emotional distress, the crystal goes off when the kids are being chased by Robbie in scary costumes, but presumably he wouldn’t really hurt them. On the other hand, Robbie sometimes experiences clear emotional distress (like when he was in the soccer robot) without the crystal going off!! Overall the workings of the crystal seem at best incoherent, at worst dangerously biased against Robbie, and
