Thank you! :D I’m glad my tutorials are helpful ^^ Maybe this will help you with hair details and stuff like that (don’t overdo detail stuff though.) Basically, it’s nothing new xD

THIS IS IMPORTANT AND WILL AFFECT EVERY SINGLE ONE OF YOU

the FCC is trying (again) to put an end to net neutrality. This will mean profit for a lot of big websites and companies like your cable or ISP, and general shittiness for everyone else. It’s not a complicated issue. It’s a shady deal that needs to be stopped.

IF NET NEUTRALITY DIES:

YOUR ISPS AND CABLE COMPANIES WILL DECIDE HOW WELL YOUR INTERNET WORKS.

YOU WILL BE CHARGED MORE FOR USING CERTAIN WEBSITES.

YOU WILL NOT HAVE ACCESS TO CERTAIN WEBSITES.

YOU WILL HAVE SLOW AND SHITTY CONNECTIONS TO CERTAIN WEBSITES.

DO NOT LET THE FCC END NET NEUTRALITY

Jily AU: Your photos keep showing up on my iPhone, and the internet helped me track you down. Now we’re kind of celebrities, and also I think you’re hot. (Inspired by "I Followed My Stolen iPhone Across The World, Became A Celebrity In China, And Found A Friend For Life" on Buzzfeed)

The article can be found here. I recommend it. It’s a wild ride. Some liberties were taken with the prompt. 

Because James is a fucking idiot, his phone gets stolen.

He knows he’s a rowdy drunk and he knows the three word mantra any university student needs when they go out (‘phone-cash-keys’) but Sirius has bet that he can take more Jägerbombs than James and he’s never been able to back down from a challenge. He doesn’t even think twice about whether his phone is in the pocket of his jeans or his coat, the latter of which he leaves at the table. He swears Peter is sitting there when he leaves, but when he comes back ten minutes later and a whole lot dizzier, the table is empty, coat and all.

He and Sirius find Peter later, crouched over a toilet and heaving with Remus patting his back. James has the decency to wait until his friend is done vomiting to ask, “Pete, d’you have my phone?”

If possible, Peter gets greener. “Sorry,” is all he gets out before shaking his head and clutching his stomach.

Peter ends up feeling worse about the whole thing than James does. James is upset to have lost all his pictures and apps, and he’s livid at the wanker who decided to grab his phone, but ultimately, he can afford a new phone and he can take new pictures, so in a few months he’ll likely get over it. But Peter insists that because James left his phone with him, it’s Peter who owes him a new one.

James attempts to refuse. Peter doesn’t have the kind of money to replace his phone, and James isn’t about to put that on him.

“My friend Dung knows how to get an iPhone for dirt cheap,” Peter claims, and reluctantly, James agrees.

And so it begins.

Reddit AMA tomorrow!

So I’ve taken leave from reality and social media to work on creative stuff full time, but I’m temporarily decloaking to support the Pixel Project, a virtual, volunteer-led global organisation whose mission is to raise awareness for the cause to end violence against women, an issue that’s incredibly important to me.

The link to the AMA will be posted over at the Reddit Fantasy community - www.reddit.com/r/fantasy - between 11AM-3PM EST tomorrow, and I’ll be live at 7PM CST to answer your questions about anything and everything for as long as I can. 

Then, next week, tune in here to hear me possibly, probably, read from The Shaw Confessions for the first time. I’m terrified I’m excited! (Seriously, I am–I can’t wait to talk about the books with you).

See you tomorrow!

Some things I want to say

I feel like making another post about this even though I’ve done it like a million times.

Its ok to be a Anti-shipper.
Dude, I’m not mad at you for not shipping this thing that I ship.
That’s cool and totally fine and valid opinion to have.

I’m mad because so many you Anti’s of so many ships in so many fandoms go around attacking people for these things.
Its fucking stupid and wrong.

Look, I’m going to give a example of a Fiction vs Reality thing.

I love Rick Sanchez.
I think he’s a interesting and amazing character. He’s intelligent and witty and self aware and such a well done character to look at.
Now, if I was forced to be around a real life alcoholic, narcissistic, megalomaniac then I’d either kill myself or run so goddamn far away.
I still love Rick as a character. But just that, A CHARACTER. Rick would be a awful person and NOT someone I would ever ever be around in the real world.

By the logic of Tumblr, Rick and Morty should be canceled and completely destroyed because it shows alcoholism, abuse and lots of other “problematic” things.
We should get rid of it forever!! What if someone watches it and thinks its ok to snort alien crystals and murder their multi-timeline selfs!!!!!!

But of course, that’s fucking stupid.


Rick and Morty is a beautiful and amazing show that makes me genuinely happy to know it got to exist. Some of the characters suck but that’s because their characters and that’s it.
Same applys to ships.
I ship RickMorty, I find their relationship interesting and complex and its something I like to read/write about.

Does this mean that I suddenly want to go shove my non existent dick down some children’s throats?

F u c k n o

We should not and will not censor art because some people don’t like it.

Anti’s say that it makes children more likely to be targeted if they see something like Maxvid because they’ll think its “normal”.
Ok no. First of all, you have to be 13 to use Tumblr and if a fucking 13+ year old sees some Maxvid or RickMorty fanart and thinks “oh yea that’s completely normal, good and healthy!”
Then just,
What the fuck?
How stupid are you that you see something on the internet and go “yea that’s exactly how real life works because fiction isn’t real and no one lies on the internet”

b O I.

And a lot of you guys seem to genuinely think that pedophilia literally only happened because a few people drew some pictures.

Yeah, no.

That’s a serious mental problem that doesn’t just happen because someone drew a picture of a kid and a triangle.

Again, I’m not mad if you don’t ship what I ship.
I mad because people go around calling me and a lot of other people these fucked up words, sending death threats and other not ok things.

You can rant and scream that we’re being problematic and horrible people but at the end of the day all we did was write a dumb story and draw something while you told someone they were a rapist pedophile

If you see something that upsets or triggers you or just something you don’t like then block the person, block the tag or just ignore it

Ship what you ship.
Don’t ship whatever you want.
Just don’t actually attack or hurt anyone, ok?

IM GOING TO TAG SOME OF THE SHIPS I HAVE THAT ARE CONSIDERED “PROBLEMATIC”
IF YOU DISAGREE WITH THESE SHIPS OR THE THINGS I’VE SAID IN THIS POST THEN PLEASE BLOCK OR UNFOLLOW ME.

i havent seen this on tumblr yet so i wanna share this awesome video essay on what satire is and how it works, because a lot of alt right idiots on the internet dont get it

anonymous asked:

how would u feel, if i told you some bi/trans ppl feel 'oppressed' by pansexuality- or rather, just the term pansexual? help me out here, i feel like if ur super accepting and liberal!1! you shouldn't go around invalidating someone's feelings, but i just can't bring myself to understand how it seems to work just fine in the 1st world internet-verse and where i live the norm is completely different.

Okay so that’s actually something I hear a lot of and honestly I get upset by it. Let me put it simply for you…

How I identify does not and will not ever affect anyone but me. Me saying that I am Pansexual does not invalidate Bi people and it sure as heck doesn’t invalidate any Trans people. It is the label that I have claimed to define my sexuality. As it is my sexuality, only I can decide what label to assign to it. Telling me that because I decide to call myself Pansexual rather than Bisexual I’m oppressing someone else is, in my opinion, not only bigoted but also fairly oppressive in itself.

Pansexuals wanting our sexuality to be recognized doesn’t hurt Bisexuals any more than Bisexuals wanting to be recognized hurts lesbian/gay people. We don’t want to take representation and/or recognition away from bisexuals at all. We want to be represented and recognized alongside them. We want people to realize there’s more than one way you can be attracted to more than one gender because there is.

We want people to stop telling us our identity is invalid.

We want people to stop saying we don’t exist.

And above all we want people to let us choose what label fits us best because that’s something nobody else can decide.

And as for Pansexuals oppressing Transgender people just by using the label Pansexual? I’m sorry but that’s also bullshit.

There is nothing inherently transphobic about the label Pansexual. Like yes, Pansexuals can be transphobic but A) most of us (from my experience) aren’t and B) even if some are that’s a problem with the person, not the identity.

If someone is being transphobic or biphobic you should by all means call them out because that’s wrong and it’s bigoted and honestly just shitty. But discounting an entire sexuality is just as wrong, just as bigoted and just as incredibly shitty.

Me saying “I’m Pansexual” isn’t oppressing anyone. It isn’t hurting anyone.

But when you turn around and say “Pansexuality isn’t real” “Pansexuality is fake” “Pansexuals are just Bisexuals wanting to be special”?

That’s bigoted. That’s oppressive.

And so is telling me that how I identify is wrong.

since i’m full of salt and quite frankly have run out of fucks to give at this point, i’m instigating a new blog policy, which is this: anyone who wants to tell me or my friends or anyone else for that matter that we “shouldn’t ship shallura” because “blah blah something teenager blah blah” has to first explain to me, in detail, how exactly they came to the conclusion that “teenager” is synonymous with “legal minor” or “literal child”, when “teenager” covers everyone up to the age of 19, and 18/19 year olds are legal adults in many countries.

I’m also gonna need you to explain to me, in detail, why you think Allura is old enough to:

  • stand next to her father on the flight deck during a deadly battle against Zarkon for the fate of the universe
  • pilot the Castle of Lions
  • lead Voltron and make life-or-death decisions about their missions
  • attack Haggar head-on, risking her life in the process
  • make the decision to sacrifice herself to save Shiro
  • command the respect not only of a group of teenagers but also of the Blade of Marmora commanders

…but is still somehow not old enough to have a romantic and/or sexual relationship with Shiro, should she wish to do so.

Furthermore you also need to explain to me in detail why you think Allura is old enough that Shiro:

  • defers to her authority
  • follows her orders
  • does not see it as his place to tell her she cannot go on missions if she wants to
  • consistently calls her by the deferential title “Princess”, further reinforcing her rank and status…

…but she’s STILL not old enough to actually date him, despite being old enough to boss him around.

Whilst you’re at it, you can explain to me how exactly you think issues about differences in physical development, maturity, and life experience map out when dealing with an alien princess from a race that canonically ages slower than humans - meaning that even if Allura is a ‘teenager’ by Altean standards, in human years she’s probably at least 100 years old - likely older - and we don’t have enough canon knowledge about Altean physiology to draw any meaningful conclusions about physical development.

And you can also go ahead and explain the logic behind dismissing the official material that refers to Shiro as one of “five Earth teens” as “obviously wrong” but still accepting material that refers to Allura as a “teenager” as “obviously right” - even though both Allura and Shiro are drawn and written in a way that indicates they are older than the other characters on the show. You also need to explain to me why you think the argument that “Allura just seems older because she’s been through so much trauma! She has to act mature because she’s a leader! She’s obviously a teen!” is perfectly valid, but “Shiro just seems older because he’s been through so much trauma! He has to act mature because he’s a leader! He’s obviously a teen!” is… somehow… laughable and ridiculous? Hmm why is that?

I’m also gonna need you to explain to me why exactly you think Shiro, who is at most 25-years-old, is “too old” to be shipped with Allura and somehow so over-the-hill he can’t possibly relate to her, even though they’re shown in canon to be on the same wavelength a lot of the time and to both have a serious and a silly side. Bearing in mind I have an entire sideblog dedicated to the fact that Shiro is actually just a huge dork who’s always confused and needs an adultier adult about 80% of the time.

And then you can explain to me where, exactly, in the canon of the show there’s any example of Shiro patronising Allura or talking down to her, or him treating her like a child or subordinate, or anything else that might suggest an unhealthy power imbalance between them. And if you do actually find anything you also need to explain why and how that “power imbalance” overcomes the more obvious power imbalance inherent in Allura being able to physically pick Shiro up and hurl him across the room.

Furthermore you can also explain to me why you think the show has scenes between Shiro and Allura that are transparently and obviously romantic if Allura is “too young” to be shipped with Shiro like… how did those scenes make it through a writers’ room, Dreamworks, and Netflix in order to appear before us if it’s “so gross”? And if you think the writers are gross for “tricking us” into shipping “an adult with a minor” by putting them in romantic scenes together - why are you still watching the show? Why do you have a zero tolerance policy towards “pedophilia apologism” when it comes to policing what people do on tumblr, but you’re perfectly prepared to overlook canon romantic scenes between “an adult and a minor” and continue watching the show?

I’m gonna need you to do all that without either (a) characterising Shiro as a 45-year-old soccer dad who doesn’t know how the internet works or (b) infantilising Allura to the point that you erase her canon strength and maturity in order to paint her as this naive irresponsible little girl who somehow… still gets to lead Voltron? Because reasons?

And no, the answer is not “she’s a princess!” because you know who else is a princess? This adorable 2-year-old:

And I don’t see anyone handing her the keys to an aircraft carrier and sending her off into battle.

The fact is you can’t explain any of these things, although I mean… have fun trying. Because the evidence for shallura being a respectful, equal ship between two people of similar ages who trust and support each other is basically… the entire canon body of Voltron. Meanwhile the evidence for this being “toxic” and “problematic” is “she got referred to as a teenager a couple of times in some spin-off materials”. And if that’s literally all you have to go on… yeah. You got nothing. 

thetimba  asked:

Normally, I would just google this, but with a word like sugaring...I am hesitant because The Internets. How does it work, of you don't mind?

It’s a mixture of sugar, water and lemon mixed to make a pliable warmish paste which is molded to the body and flicked away quickly in the direction of the hair growth to minimize pain and breakage, making it more effective at long term hair removal–unlike wax which is hot, hard to ensure is organic, uses strips that pull the skin and hair against the growth so it more often breaks and you’re left with stubble and sore skin. Unlike wax, sugaring can also be washed off with water, so you don’t need to use any oil based wipes or special cleansers which can often irritate sensitive skin. Usually reputable sugar waxing salons won’t do treatments like a full Brazilian wax because of the risk of yeast infection, which is probably the only downside of sugaring, if that is part of your hair removal goals.

It’s basically a better method of waxing, in my experience. Especially if you have allergies and sensitivities like I do. I’ve had burns as well as chemical burns from cheap waxes. Sugar paste is never hot Hot because the practitioner will usually use their hand to apply and remove it. Not strips.

I also find it to be less painful and lasts longer, which is nice.
