anonymous asked:

I saw someone headcanoning that Sero and Bakugou had this friends with benefits thing in the past in which they would make out sometimes just for fun. I really liked that idea. How would you think Kaminari and Kirishima would react to that? Do you think they'd get jealous or?

anonymous asked:

Assalamu alaikum! I've been thinking about converting, but the problem is I'm in high school and still live with my parents. I'm not sure of their views on Islam. My mother seemed happy when I got a book on learning the Arabic language a few days ago. However, I do want to stay safe just in case. I've been reading the Quran online, but I can't wear hijab, so I can't do the five prayers, nor fast. What can I do, other than read the quran? Thank you!

Walaikom Assalam friend!

I completely understand not wanting to let your family know your interest in Islam, at least not until you know how they will react or how it will impact your relationship with them.

Reading the Quran online is a great first step, you can also begin to memorize the Quran starting with short chapters such as An-Nas & Al-Falaq. This will benefit you when you can start praying. You can listen to the pronunciation of these surahs in Arabic on YouTube.

If you have a lock on your door you could sneak in a few prayers but I understand the fear of your family catching you. You can pray when you’re outside of the home (at the library, mall dressing rooms, etc). There are still other things you can do!

——–
1. Make dua (asking Allah ﷻ for anything you want; guidance, ease with your family, knowledge, safety, good health). This is making supplication and can be done in any language, any time, for anything and for anyone

2. Make dhikr. Dhikr is remembrance of Allah ﷻ and it is short phrases that remind you of Allah ﷻ and His amazing qualities. Reading the Quran is dhikr. It can be done silently. For example saying “God is great” is dhikr. Here are some common dhikr phrases in Arabic:

Allahu Akbar: God is great
SubhanAllah: Glory be to God
Alhumdulillah: Praise be to God
La hawla wa la quwwata illa billah: There is no power except with Allah

These are just a few examples you can say silently to yourself and reflect on the meaning. It is a form of worship and brings you good deeds.

3. Read hadiths. These are narrations of the Prophet (peace be upon him) . The authentic ones are the ones we use to construct our beliefs and make up the sunnah, traditions of the Prophet (peace be upon him). You can learn so much about Islam through reading Hadith and understanding what they mean and why they were inspired by God to the Prophet (peace be upon him). The best resource for reading hadiths is: sunnah.com

4. Read about the life of all the prophets. You can read some of their stories in the Quran, but learn more and more from their full stories from Ibn Kathir. Check out this website: http://www.islamawareness.net/Prophets/

5. Watch YouTube lectures on Islam. Omar Suleiman and Nouman Ali Khan and popular ones in English

6. Read books about Islam online! There are many you can find in PDF version.

——

These are just some ideas and I hope they help. Please feel free to ask questions and I will help if I can! I ask Allah ﷻ to make this easy on you! Let me know how everything goes ♥️♥️♥️

Silly headcanons aside, sometimes I wonder how much of Chorus would have gone differently if Donut really had made a concerted effort to befriend Locus

Like, from his point of view here’s this guy who’s even worse off than Wash was when it comes to Normal Human Interacting (ok, with a Blood Gulch Flavor) and is probably in desperate need of a damned hug

And for years Felix has been telling Locus, “we’re partners, survivors, it’s you and me against the universeblah blah blah”

And here comes Donut, walking ray of trolling sunshine

if Donut decides you’re his friend, you’re his friend

Summary of Aaron Burr, Sir
  • Hamilton: Hi, I'm Alexander Hamilton!
  • Burr: Why are you speaking to me?
  • Hamilton: I punched your friend and wanted your help to know how to get through college as fast as you did.:)
  • Burr: I was proudly protecting my parents legacy.
  • Hamilton: Hey wait your an orphan? OMG samesies! Don't you wish there was a war going on right now?
  • Burr: I prefer not to discuss my political views you should do the same.
  • Laurens: I'm John Laurens and I want to free the slaves!
  • Lafayette: I'm French and monarchy can go f*ck itself!
  • Mulligan: I'm a super macho spy for the British!
  • All four: what do you say to that Burr?!
  • Burr: nothing at all.
  • Hamilton: profound sounding thing about how you should stand up for what you believe.
  • All but Burr and Ham: who's this dude?!?!
  • me: i'm 19 and i can confirm that people my age view 15/16 year olds as children. there is no reason a decent person my age would be with someone that young romantically.
  • ot*yuri shippers: um?? but its only a 3 year age gap?? which is perfectly healthy?? gosh stop hating omg you don't know what you're talking about

anonymous asked:

i'm still a little bit confused because we do that with characters we strongly relate to. like for example my friend strongly relates to hanamaru from love live! so i'll tag her in things like "it's you!!" like how is that bad? i'm sorry i hope i don't come off as rude im just trying to understand. i know some artists may feel differently about the subject but i wanna hear it from your point of view

my point of view is basically that:

the character i drew is the character i drew. it is no one else. 
So i don’t like it when people tag their friends saying it’s their friend. I didn’t draw it for your friend. If people would just simply tag their friend without that comment, and the friend not reblogging with “me/ID/k*n’ i would be completely fine with it. I am not against relating to a character. i’m not telling anyone how to feel. I am asking that people respect my boundaries and not tag my hard work with things that make me feel bad.

I hope this makes sense 

anonymous asked:

So in the story I'm writing, the main character is a lesbian. She has a crush on someone who she thinks is a girl. Near the end of the story, her crush comes out as agender. Idk how to have the lesbian react, since I'm bi so the gender of a crush doesn't matter to me. Do you have any suggestions?

So I was unsure of how to answer this, so I asked my nb friend, who wrote back “Hm ok so I’m not really sure cuz I’m not a lesbian so I don’t know if it would affect her views about her own sexuality. But I do think that the agender character is still the same person they were before they came out so it probably shouldn’t affect her view of them that much (unless they started T or something maybe). The lesbian character would probably want to do some research on agender people tho and talk to them about their gender so they can gain a better understanding. That’s really all I know idk if that’s any help”

If anyone else has anything to say on the topic, feel free to leave a reply!

livayblogs  asked:

Heya! Would you like to share your story of coming out, the reaction of family and friends, falling in love with someone on the other side of the world and then even leaving said people for the love of your life, moving to another continent? How did you view Asy when you first wrote each other? Do you still visit your family and friends in your home country? I'm so~ curious. We know Asynca's side of the story but your's is probably just as good :D

My coming out story is rather lame. I’ve been gay for as long as I can remember, I started having crushes on girls when I was still in kindergarten. No one in my family ever talked about homosexuality, no one ever told me that being gay is supposed to be bad, so for my entire life I just did what felt natural to me because I assumed others must feel it too. I crushed on Xena and Lara Croft, I talked about girls being hot, I dressed like the gayest of dykes you’ve ever seen, I had a huge poster of Tanya Chalkin’s ‘The Kiss’ hanging on my wall. When I finally decided to tell my parents, they just laughed and said “tell us something we don’t know”.

When I first met Asynca on DeviantArt, I never thought we could become more than online buddies. She was the only other person I knew who was into Lara Croft/Amanda Evert and that was enough for me. At the time she was making fanart in XNALara, so I picked it up and asked her to teach me how to use it, which led to us talking on MSN. At first we only talked now and then, but we quickly started talking on daily basis. We discussed her writing (she was working on Rebuilt Anew back then), Bayonetta and Tomb Raider, and we got to know each other better. I don’t even know when I fell in love with her, but suddenly I was thinking about her all the time and I wanted to share everything with her. We had a terrible argument at one point, and we didn’t talk for a month or so. I still sent her a Christmas present and eventually she messaged me on DA. We started talking regularly again, and things felt different. She was single again by that point and when I flirted, she flirted back. We knew each other for about a year at that point, and after a few Skype dates Asy invited me to come visit her for a month.

My parents were a bit wary, telling me that she may actually be a guy lying to me, but they calmed down once they heard her on Skype. I traveled to Australia for the first time in my life, and had a great time with Asy. She drove me around, showed me all the things we don’t have in my country, and introduced me to her family. When we were saying our goodbyes at the airport, she wrote “Come Back to Anna” on my forearm and we both cried a lot. I spent 3 more months in the Czech Republic before I could permanently go back to Australia. I sold most of my games to get some money for the trip, I quit my job, said goodbye to my friends, family and dog. My decision may have seemed rash, but everyone was lovely and supportive and no one questioned me.

When I arrived, Asy went out of her way to make the transition easy, but it was still hard. I was terribly depressed for the first 2 years or so. I missed my dog, I had no friends, I never heard my language anywhere, and everything looked so alien. I’ve been in Australia for over 5 years now and I’ve only seen my parents once, 3 years ago. It was a shock to go back. My parents were older, my mother’s multiple sclerosis got so bad she can no longer walk and her speech is slurred, my brother came out as bi and got engaged to a guy, my dog got cancer and had to be put down. My friends moved on, my town changed. I don’t like change at the best of times, and this was absolutely overwhelming to me. I couldn’t wait to go back to Australia. I still don’t feel like I belong here, but it feels more like home than my old home did.

And that’s my side of the story. I’m mostly just a clueless girl who really lucked out. :)

Perhaps he shouldn’t of stayed up so late conversing with old friends and (what seems to become more frequent these days ever since the magic took hold) thinking of the past. The temptation to stay in recharge a little longer is so very tempting but he gets up. Slowly, surely, if a little unsteadily on his pedes. Bit by bit his functions come online checking off his status and current state of being. How very odd it is to view the world with two optics again…

Fuel: 28%

Self repair: Active.

Ah. That was always active but despite it’s attempts it was always insufficient. The processor damage he had sustained seemed permanent at this point and he doubted anyone he knew currently could fix him. Trepan was always reluctant to access his helm and assess things- “past reasons,” he explained quietly after too much high grade and excessive amounts of exhaustion. Shockwave didn’t push the matter.

Fueling was so much simpler now, no injector needed when he had an intake, still… Digits lingered on the device for a few brief moments before shifting to the crystallised sweeter kind of energon he kept around more for visitors than himself. A single larger piece provided a pop of sweetness he hadn’t experienced before making the ex-con pause. Is this why Vos, Trepan and Starscream demanded sweets so regularly? When put into this point of view, experiencing it himself he could now see the logic of craving such high quality sweets and confectionery.

Perhaps he did have a function today then. Shockwave mentally listed off all the things he would need but today was the day the fearsome scientist attempted to make sweets. Pure, perfectly formed sweets. The ‘kitchen’ was dubbed off limits today for anyone but the scientist, he had work to do.

anonymous asked:

I've been on the search for an INFJ friend for a long time. What do you think an INFJ might look like from a stranger's point of view i.e. how might I identify someone as an INFJ after a few days of being around them? My only social contact in real life is that I'm in theatre, so I get to be in a big group of people and hang around them for a few months. Also I wonder what the chances might be of an INFJ in theatre. -INTP in need of a partner in crime

See this post. INFJs are the rarest type so the chances of finding one in real life is pretty low. I’ve personally known INFJs who have interest in theatre so it’s possible. When you first meet them, they won’t seem particularly bold, animated, or outgoing unless the situation demands it of them or they know everyone really well. They tend to hold back and observe rather than participate; they may listen to people talk for a long time and interject with an occasional comment that adds good insight to the topic. They might seem a bit rigid, standoffish, or unwilling to try things that require them to improvise or be the center of attention. You will likely get a weird feeling that they are perceptive or analyzing you (when they are focused on you). They might make comments about what you are thinking/feeling before you even realize it yourself. They will generally feign interest in what you are saying but they won’t really come alive until you start discussing the “deeper meaning” of a topic or experience. They often won’t volunteer much information about themselves until you ask them directly. They have an unconscious tendency to shift perspectives in how they look at something; this will often be apparent in their dry humor when they twist or flip how you see a situation (INTPs generally enjoy INFJ humor). They can be keen to offer advice. Mature INFJs are warmish and like intellectual inquiry and analysis and are not quick to form judgments about people or situations or, if they have formed a judgment, you will find that contradicting them will make them pause and consider other perspectives (they resemble INTPs a little in this way). Less mature INFJs will have an air of being awkward, snobby, arrogant, critical, or judgmental and seem to have high standards with regard to how they see/approach life or relationships. They dislike disagreement and can be very defensive when contradicted, subsequently becoming hot and cold in their behavior.

anonymous asked:

I'm really happy I found this blog tbh because I thought I was the only once grossed out by this. I also recently found out that two of my close friends ship irl people (one ships phan) but I'm really bad with expressing my words/views so could you please give me a short argument for why its bad, so I can express it to them. Sorry if you've already done this!! And thank you in advance!

Sorry that your friends do that, anon!

Okay, so I’m just gonna list some reasons why shipping real people is bad:

  • It’s very dehumanizing
  • The main reason why most of these ships exist is because of how often relationships between Gay White Boys™ are fetishized
    • Seriously there’s so many unhealthy ships that only exist because of the *~yaoizzz~*
  • Because a lot of these ships are often between people that already have relationships with someone else, the other person often gets harassed
    • I think @torielagainstships says it best in this post
  • A lot of the people being shipped have said that they don’t want to be shipped (could only find one link right now, sorry)
  • (specifically for ph@n) In a lot of Dan and Phil’s tumblr tag videos, a lot of ph@n is shoved in their faces (including porn!! which counts as sexual harassment)
    • Most of the time they seem very uncomfortable when seeing that stuff

Yeah, so that’s all of the arguments that I have for now! Good luck!

creative-reblogging  asked:

Hello! I was technically raised in the Christian faith, but my parents were never great about really consistently taking me to church as a child. I want to figure out where I stand in terms of my faith, so that I can carry it with me as I go into adulthood. I'm trying to view it as if I'm new to Christianity altogether. Would you have any suggestions as to where to start? Just reading the Bible is confusing to me, and I feel like I don't get anything from it. How do I get to know God?

Hey dear friend, I want to commend you and applaud you on your newfound adventure of faith. Wherever it takes you, you have my prayers and a super big double high-five and internet fist-bump (and a hug too, why not?). I’m genuinely excited for you.

I’m honestly a bit new to Christianity myself (I was an atheist longer than I’ve been a Christian and it was a slow journey to faith throughout my seven years of college), so the memories of starting new are still quite fresh. I also understand that faith can feel intimidating, partially because the church can make it difficult, but faith itself can seem like an amorphous unfathomable maze. These are only my suggestions, as everyone’s road has different curves and obstacles, so please feel free to add or subtract or modify as you will.


- Find a church. If you have any friends who are currently attending a church, ask them about their Sunday service or any recommendations for you (you can also try websites and check out their statements of faith and their group pictures). The thing with church though is that it can feel overwhelming when you walk in: most people are uncomfortable in new situations with new people and unfamiliar surroundings. Even as a pastor and a chaplain, aka a “professional Christian,” I still feel all kinds of anxiety when I walk into a new church to visit. So it’s a really good idea to go with a friend. It’s also a good idea to try the Friday or Wednesday service, when the numbers are scaled down and it’s a more intimate setting. 

A sidenote: Finding a church is incredibly hard and requires more than once. Just think, you’re looking for a second family, a second home! That’s no small feat to approach lightly. Last year, my wife and I desperately looked for a new church-home when we got married, and we tried about a dozen different churches before landing on one (and the one we landed on, we had to go about three times before we both felt called to stay). We gave many of those churches a second or third chance, so altogether, it took us over seven months to find a place where we felt we could serve and be led.


- Download some sermon podcasts. I’m a self-professed sermon junkie; I probably listen to about ten hours of sermons per week. While podcasts shouldn’t be the “main diet,” they’re sort of like supplements, or protein shakes, for a growing faith. I often listen to them on headphones at the gym or on car rides to work (I live about an hour from my workplace). Some preachers I listen to are: Timothy Keller, Andy Stanley, Francis Chan, Louie Giglio, Ravi Zacharias, and Matt Chandler. I also really love Brené Brown.

A sidenote: Please consider heavy discernment when listening to podcasts. In other words, you don’t have to believe every single opinion or statement, and sometimes a preacher’s theology might be a little fuzzy in some areas. Not every preacher or author is perfect, and public speaking has a way of blurting out certain things that are not always carefully worded. So listen with both a critical ear and a soft heart, or as Jesus says, “be as wise as snakes and as pure as doves.”


- Get with mature Christians and elders. We all, and I mean all, need some kind of leadership and mentoring and authority, speaking into our lives, in every season. We need both encouragers and challengers in our lives: people who can speak a grand vision over us while stretching our views and habits and beliefs. That means, get with your pastor and married couples and elderly Christians and successful business leaders and anyone who will spare a lunch — yes, your parents too! — and consistently ask annoying questions to grab their wisdom. Every person is a fountain of experience who is waiting to pour out to love on someone else. Ask about how their faith has gotten them through hard times; ask about how their faith informs their marriage, career, raising kids, and keeping focus. You’ll grow by leaps and bounds.

A sidenote: Soon enough, or perhaps already, you’ll be in a position where you can pour out to others. This entire cycle of pouring out is called discipleship in the Christian language. It’s a deep life-on-life pouring out of who you are for another; it’s the best of you for the best of them. We’re each called to disciple others just as we’re called to be discipled. This is the number one way I’ve found that Christians grow and one of the highest honors to give and receive.


- Consider a Bible plan. There are study Bibles, reading plans, and reflection calendars all over the place. It all depends on how you learn best. Here are a few posts that might get you started:

- Five Tips on How to Study the Bible

- Which Books of the Bible Do I Start First?

- Bible Reading Plans (to Print and Save)

For me, I like to camp out in a book of the Bible for a few weeks to get the feel of it, like Proverbs or Ephesians or John. I’ve also read the whole thing from front to back a few times. I also recommend getting the best Bible commentary of all time, What The Bible Is All About by Henrietta Mears, which breaks down every book of the Bible with history, character profiles, and of course, pictures.


-Try some Christian music. This won’t work for everyone, but I’ve found that listening to Christian music, especially during stress or on a drive, brings me right back to Him. Some of my favorite artists include: David Crowder Band, Switchfoot, Lecrae, Jesus Culture, Bethel, Hillsong, Phil Wickham, Gungor, Tree63, Brooke Fraser, Lincoln Brewster, and Israel Houghton. Some of these might be too “pop,” but very often that’s exactly the point: they’re easy to sing to and very accessible.


- Journal & pray. I like to write, between me and God, a lot. This isn’t everyone’s favorite thing, so if it stresses you out, there are a lot of other ways to reflect and meditate and pray.


- Serve. Find a need, serve the need. Your local church is most likely involved in the community somehow (if they’re not, it’s probably not a church worth attending), so find out and get plugged in. If not, you can still serve on your own. There are countless homeless shelters, babysitting opportunities, home-building like Habitat for Humanity, hospital volunteering, and assisted living facilities that need you. I volunteered at a homeless shelter for over four years and those were some of my favorite memories.


- Practice gratitude. This is something you can do everyday, all the time, as an exercise of faith and trust that will turn your whole heart upside-down. Simply thank God, for little things, as much as you possibly can. Thank God for the gifts and talents and resources He has given you. Thank God for His Son, for the cross and resurrection, for the sacrifice that has set us right. I don’t mean that you can never get mad or grieve or vent; I just mean that our first reflex is often to grumble and complain and compare and judge. Joy is the very first thing to leave in any situation, and we have to fight to keep the joy in ministry, in friendships, in our every endeavor. God is always after your joy — not happiness, which is good but fleeting — and one of the avenues to joy is thanksgiving. Make that a daily practice and I can almost guarantee your perspective will widen and deepen; you will feel compassion swell; you will grow more intimate with Him.

I am honestly in shock. He was one of those actors who shaped my view on cinema and comedy. From Jack to Jumanji, Aladdin to Ferngully, Mrs. Doubtfire to Dead Poets Society. Robin Williams was always present during my childhood and it shocks me to no end how he is gone so quickly and so soon. He was truly one of the most talented and funny actors of his time. Rest in peace, sir. Thank you for giving everyone a friend like you.
