i actually have no idea what it means

anonymous asked:

(Title fic) Choromatsu and the salty sea.

going off on the idea that the ‘salty sea’ isn’t a literal salty sea and is actually referring to crying (because tears are salty yanno) then I guess this idea could take place in the same universe as my oso’s future fic (which you can look at here if you have no idea what that is but beware of spoilers)

the plot could deal with choro and the emotional shitstorm swirling inside of him throughout the 5 years that oso has been [REDACTED] and more specifically on all the times he’s cried himself to sleep wondering how things could have possibly gone to shit the way they did

…and I mean if you want an idea that’s less angsty and upsetting then I guess ‘choromatsu and the salty sea’ could simply be an au about sailor choro meeting poseidon/waterbender kara (I’m not that into suiriku but I know a lot of people are)

normalize trans bodies in wlw/mlm settings

when you say things like “trans inclusive” dont then turn around and only include descriptions of cis women in your sapphic poetry or only post art that only has cis men

if you’re cis and want to be “trans inclusive” make damn sure you’re actually trying to correct any transphobia that you have and correct any internal ideas that cis men/women are the only ones that belong in mlm/wlw spaces

also, normalize wlw/mlm relationships that don’t have any cis people in them. we dont need to date cis people to be considered “actual” wlw/mlm

it’s also okay for trans people to avoid dating cis people all together (whether for safety reasons or because of past traumas)

just. yah idk make sure that you actually mean it when you say that you’re trans inclusive and actively try to work on not being transphobic

(yr encouraged to rb if yr cis)

  • What she say: I'm fine.
  • What she means: I am actually freaking out because in under 100 hours a series that only airs once in a blue moon is airing the first episode of a new series which made the actors cry when they read the script and in the trailer the main character says 'I love you' to someone but I have no idea who and I am praying that it's his flatmate because they are both gay for each other but then in the synopsis of the second episode it says that the flatmates are drawn apart and I cannot understand under what circumstances this could've happened and I think the baby is going to die but I don't know and no one will listen to me freak out because they think its just a stupid show with famous actors when its actually so much more than that and all I honestly can do is wait.
Sherlock’s ONE therapy session with Ella starts back in His Last Vow: It’s not Extended Mind Palace, it’s an Unreliable Narrator

Something’s up with The Six Thatchers. This was a blog post and case back in 2012 yet no one in the episode remembers that. Also the episode was trippy AF but what does that all mean? We have a lot of guesses, and I’ve just thought of one more, one I’m actually quite convinced of. It combines our “extended mind palace” idea with the Mycroft’s concept of “the unreliable narrator”. So here’s the thing: Sherlock met Ella at the end of The Six Thatchers but he recalls events from his life from before he shot Magnussen in His Last Vow, when John’s life/happiness was threatened and Sherlock had to give up everything to save him. Everything we’ve seen since Mary shot him has been a recount of events from Sherlock’s point of view, even placing himself in scenes he wasn’t actually in. This is why we see characters repeat lines other characters have said, even though they were never there to hear them. Sherlock’s recounting, throwing cases in where they don’t belong to fill in the gaps. Meaning the events immediately after Sherlock got shot by Mary are him recounting the situation to Ella and we wouldn’t know that until right now. 

So here’s the timeline:
–Mary Shoots Sherlock 
–Sherlock goes to the hospital and stays there for a long time to recover 
–Sherlock is not part of Mary’s reveal in the way we saw (Him scaling the hospital wall, moving John’s chair, setting up the I.V., the perfume, and rigging a projector was just him adding a touch of drama to embellish the story as he tells Ella ****this happens a lot, keep in mind*****)
–John doesn’t let Sherlock read the AGRA drive (so he assumes John hasn’t read it either, that would be the only reason to keep it from Sherlock)
–Sherlock calls Magnussen and makes a deal with him (Sherlock does not go to a restaurant in a hospital gown ***again, this is a touch of the dramatic for Ella’s benefit***) 
–John chooses Mary for reasons we do not know (Sherlock assumes it’s because of sentiment, but he wasn’t actually part of that scene so he’s simply guessing how it probably played out – he made sure to never have them use the words “I love you” because that would’ve hurt too much. Weird how Mary was at Sherlock’s mom’s house for Christmas? Yeah. She probably wasn’t there. But John and Mary reconciled that day, so Sherlock inserts that in his sphere. This happens more than once.)
–Sherlock kills Magnussen
–Sherlock gets high because he’s lost John Watson again (just like at the end of TSOT)
–Sherlock gives himself a Casablanca-type send off in order to tell John how he feels. Dramatic Bastard. Keep in mind he’s high as a kite, not on the tarmac, but hoping he could experience that movie moment with his leading man. This is why John doesn’t say much there or on that plane during TAB. The coke dream started after he shot Magnussen and envelopes all of TAB, but he tells Ella as if it’s real. 
–Mycroft doctors the footage, Sherlock never in danger of going to Eastern Europe because the tarmac/TAB wasn’t actually real. He’s still high at the beginning of TST, obviously. This is him coming down from the coke he took shortly after he killed Magnussen. 
–Sherlock is too absorbed in his phone (heart) to pay John and his new family any attention. He ignores John’s texts. He makes John feel like he’s equal to a balloon and a dog. He demands John take the bus.
–John, hurt, finds fleeting pleasure in a strange woman (This is what Sherlock thinks, at least. He’s seen all the signs. John losing weight, changing his hair, dressing nice, spending time away from both him and Mary – what else is Sherlock to think? What else are we to think? Keep reading and I’ll tell you). 
–The Six Thatchers case isn’t happening in real time – it happened years ago but Sherlock kept the best parts in order to better relay what’s happening with the AGRA stick. In the blog post, the murder weapon was a penknife with initials on it, shoved in a Thatcher bust. The mirror here is clear. All that we need to take from this is Mary’s past has come back to haunt her. 
–Mary leaves John to go to Morocco. John follows – Without Sherlock. John catches her and brings her back to London. Didn’t it feel weird when John and Mary were having a really intimate moment and Sherlock was just… sitting there absorbing it all? That’s because he wasn’t there, this is how he assumed things went in Morocco. Which means he wasn’t on that plane sitting awkwardly behind Mary and far from John. We see Sherlock with his eyes closed, sleeping. That’s also when he sees John thinking of the other woman. Sherlock tells Ella he has a reoccurring dream about John –  he’s dreaming about what he fears John is most-likely absorbed in: finding fleeting happiness in yet another woman. 
–Mary’s death scene is being recounted from Sherlock’s POV, meaning real events are very similar, but off. Sherlock believes Mary took a bullet for him, apologized, and John wept for the love of his life. Just because we saw it doesn’t mean it’s real. Just because Sherlock believes she’s dead doesn’t mean she actually is. Trust nothing.

This theory explains why Mary calls Sherlock the Dragon-slayer, something Mycroft said. It explains why The Six Thatchers was a case twice. It explains why Norbury quoted Moriarty from TGG. It explains why Sherlock is so hung up on premonitions: John and Mary in TST followed exactly what Sherlock dreamt about with the Carmichaels in TAB. 

So. That was long! But all of this has one question dangling in the air: What’s actually been going on with John this whole time? If he reconciled with Mary, follows her abroad, is spending time away from his family, and is in cahoots with a woman he met on the bus, it would point to John becoming a plant/agent himself working behind Sherlock’s back to destroy an invisible threat. This is why the end of The Six Thatchers mirrors the end of The Reichenbach Fall – except the characters are switched. John pushed Sherlock away, lied to him, left him a note, and distanced himself. Sherlock goes to the therapist and grows the facial hair.
The woman on the bus sits right next to a poster of Culverton Smith. Many have suggested she’s actually a part of something far larger than we can see yet. 

The last thing I’ll leave you with, and correct me if I’m wrong, but didn’t Setlock show Martin Freeman filming on a camel? Alone? Why would he be the only one on the camel if both he and Sherlock went to Morocco? 

That’s because Sherlock didn’t follow him to Morocco when he tracked down Mary. Sherlock inserted himself somewhere to better tell us the story. 

This is part of their rug pull coming up. The unsettling nature of The Six Thatchers is meant to make us ask questions about what we can and cannot trust with our own eyes. Is it a bluff? Or a double bluff? Is he alive or is he dead? How could he be alive if I saw the blood on the roof? How could he be alive if I saw him fall?

The writers are giving us the same doubt felt by the characters. 

Welcome to Hell.

Okay but have you considered the idea that Victor neglecting his two L’s - love and life for most of his life

may be connected to his falling in love with Yuuri on the night of the banquet?

I mean, this is just my assumption and I know it’s hard to believe but… what if Victor is actually a virgin/is really sexually inexperienced?

What if Victor himself didn’t understand love until he met Yuuri?

What if that’s why he wants to spend the rest of his life with him?

kara as kara danvers: hehehe ms luthor pls i’m- hehehe [is v nervous] i have a few questions if that’s ok i hope i do you justice with this article [giggles] i actually need a lil favor pls u’re so nice thank u hehehe

kara as supergirl: ur idea is literal bullshit like what even are u thinking lmao i mean i have ur back but oh my god

A motivational poster for everyone who needs it!

I got this idea when I thought about what kind of motivational posters Grunt would have. Maybe I’ll end up selling this as an actual poster if there is enough interest.

I chose blue as the main color, because I love the paragon way and I hate being mean and hurt virtual characters’ feelings. (One time I killed the Rachni and cried)

Happy N7 Day!!

Just a reminder that it’s completely fine to ship Otabek and Yurio.

Listen, there are thousands of ship between two characters that are friends in canon, and there’s nothing wrong about that.

There is nothing wrong about liking the idea of a romantic relationship the same way there is nothing wrong about liking the idea of a platonic one.

I have never seen this kind of discourse around straight ships. Actually, it’s pretty normal to ship two friends. It’s extremely common, and it doesn’t make platonic relationships any less meaningful.

I can’t believe people are actually saying we shouldn’t ship them because they’re friends since, to me, it makes the ship even more endearing.
The idea of them being friends for years and slowly falling in love is beautiful, and I’ll keep loving it no matter what other people say.

Otabek means a lot to Yurio to the point that he became part of his agape a day after they became friends. That’s how strong their chemistry is. Yurio laughed and blushed while talking with Otabek. He was given the attention he deserves, and even the recognition of his strength as a skater.

This is a beautiful ship.
Like it platonically or romantically. It doesn’t matter to me.
But don’t tell us we can’t ship it, because you have no right to do that.

And just because you want to interpret Kubo’s words whatever way you want, ignoring what the translator says, won’t make this ship sink.

If anything, I appreciate this ship more than ever, after her comment on how important their bond is. So much that they wanted to make more scenes for them.

I believe it’s safe to say that, if we get a second season (WHEN we get it), there’ll be a lot more Otabek/Yurio moments.

ways to make peridot have a “dorky” side without damaging all previous characterization:
-camp pining hearts (which was, admittedly one thing the series actually managed to pull off imo)
-occasionally deliberately peppering in earth slang she’s learning in between her articulate speech patterns
-have her geek out over tech!! isn’t she supposed to be a technician with lots of prior experience with machinery? or is she only suddenly that when the plot requires it
-conducting meticulous earth experiments on various topics, such as which organisms can fly, which conditions are ideal for the phenomenon of rain, etc., and recording all this data in a giant book/log/something else which documents everything she has learned on earth for reference for her to peruse through at later times
-having an affinity for wearing “shirts,” and usually doing so when (she thinks) no one is looking
-spending hours on end making advanced, convoluted contraptions for simple actions solely for the purpose of showing off her metal powers
-just. building robots and contraptions in general and treating them like her children instead of making w/e the hell those morps are
-drawing out complex diagrams for “where she’s going to put the star”/making rough sketches of a “crystal gem” outfit
basically redemption arc peridot; any peridot after that is a cursed shrieking gremlin child

what i learned today while tallying homestuck statistics:

Dave has no idea how to end a conversation. I mean, I knew he just never shut the fuck up, but i’m trying to tally the number of conversations and in acts 1-4, and dave has had like, 8, total. cause whenever someone else says goodbye he just keeps talking at them until they eventually come back instead of actually signing out of pesterchum like a normal person

Loving someone with Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD)

((ROMANTICALLY OR PLATONICALLY))

1) Tell them what’s real. Have them tell you what’s real. Whether it’s the color of their shirt or how much they are needed.

2) Be there. Just be there. For them, or with them. Sometimes the most calming thing can be laying in bed (or on the floor!) with them in silence. Just having another person with them.

3) The little things means everything. The actual idea that you have taken a second to not tell us, but show us will be something we hold onto. (Personal note: someone very special to me sent me a flower gram at school in February for Valentine’s Day, I still have it.)

4) Reassure them constantly that you love them. Keep them in the loop of your life, even if it’s just a text saying you love them or what you’re up to today.

5) They will think you’re angry with them for no obvious reason to you, and then you’ll get annoyed that they think that. Don’t. Our minds have a way of making us think any and everyone hates us.

6) They will push you away. They’re scared. It is nothing against you. Typically, it means they’re scared of how close you’re getting. This is a great time for hugs (with consent!)

7) They will love you. They feel so deeply and sometimes it’s so, so hard but they will never ever want to be without you.

Ok so I’m re-reading Harry Potter...

On the bus during my commutes to and from school. And as I read, I’ve been making little notes and internal dialogues about things that I notice as I go (or notice again because I have no idea how many times I’ve read these books. So many times…) And I figured I might share them as I go through each book, because honestly when isn’t there a good time to geek out over the Wizarding World? Kay? Kay :)

The Philosopher’s Stone

  • Why, why, WHY does no one talk about Dumbledore’s fabulous high-heeled purple boots??
  • You know what I never noticed before? Professor McGonagall actually left Hogwarts to go to Privet Drive the day that James and Lily died. Like I mean obviously, but think about it; the first book starts out on a Tuesday (says it a couple paragraphs in to the first chapter) and we know that they died on Halloween. So the school is well into its Fall term, and it’s the middle of the week. McGonagall left the school, and all her classes, to go and sit all day long on that garden wall of Privet Drive just to wait for any information at all regarding this family. She sat there literally for hours to hear any confirmation of these wonderful yet terrible rumors. She waited and waited just to see if Harry was alright. And after just barely witnessing a distant taste of how horrid the Dursley’s were, she was completely outraged at Dumbledore’s suggestion to leave Harry there.
  • Also, there was a full day between when James and Lily were killed and when Hagrid brought Harry to Privet Drive. Imagine Hagrid taking care of baby bean Harry, loving on him so much, while probably breaking into tears every few minutes. I’m getting emotional, Hagrid and McGonagall are too wonderful.
  • I love the fact that the very first thing Mrs. Weasley does when she hears who Harry is from the twins is to make sure they treat him like a normal boy rather than going off to gawk at him. She is an amazing mother, and already so ready to protect him in a way he hadn’t known for ten years.
  • Harry and Ron’s first meeting means the world to me. These are two eleven year old boys bonding over not having much money nor being very special growing up. Will I ever make it through reading this series without getting overly-emotional at random bits? Nope, probably not!
  • I’m honestly still confused as to how Peter Pettigrew was sorted into Gryffindor. I mean he really doesn’t seem to display any of the the house traits as far as I can see. The only possible thing I can come up with is that he must’ve befriended the other three Marauders on the first train ride and was so desperate to stick close to them that he insisted the Sorting Hat place him with them. I mean the Hat does take the persons wants into consideration, he must’ve been adamant. Either that or perhaps part of the Hat’s decision is looking at where someone’s placement would benefit them most? Like “this child could do with being around these specific people so hopefully they will grow to be courageous when circumstances call for it, as well as truly loyal to those who care for and are loyal to them.” Maybe the Hat doesn’t just look at who you are but also who you need to become. And in the instance of Pettigrew, it just wasn’t enough.
  • It’s actually canon that Dumbledore likes bowling. Why does no one talk about this? More importantly, why is there no art for this??
  • Still not over how Hagrid totally sent Harry a letter with Hedwig that first week of school to make sure he didn’t feel left out.
  • Can we talk about the fact that Neville took on both Crabbe and Goyle single handed while Ron beat up Malfoy? Because FRICK YEAH go Neville!
  • Every time they mention Charlie Weasley I re-realize just how salty I am that they never had him in the movies.
  • Hagrid says Dumbledore “borrowed” Fluffy, which makes me wonder where he keeps Fluffy when he’s not living on the 3rd floor? Maybe in the forest, like Grawp? I suspect it would need to be super deep in there…
  • Honestly Snape is such an ass. I know he was technically on the good side, but he was certainly not a good person. And any Snape apologists can fight me on this.

Me and a good friend of mine were talking about it recently and we ended up wondering about FFXV if it had Mermaids. You wouldn’t get a whole lot of mean or harmful ones in it just due to the fact you can’t work your way into the ocean. (Not to say there wouldn’t be at all but it’d be harder since the boys are touching the sea much)
So what about Altissia having mermaids?

The ones who live there already know about them. But the chocobros really don’t.
They ride the Gondola and the people running it just know they are tourists, they haven’t seen these boys before and face it the clothes kind of show they are, and are like “keep hands and arms and everything inside the boat at all times. If you have a wallet with a chain do not let your chain hang out” and so on and they all think it’s just standard safety procedures. But then the people who run it are like “Don’t even sit on the edge just in case of a rare occurrence of a mermaid” and they get that warning for if you’re anywhere near the water don’t even look over and they all just kind of laugh it off because that must be one of those weird legends they tell to the non-locals just to pull their leg.
until it finally happens…

Maybe it was Gladio who was sitting on the side edge, and one suddenly peeks up and grabs him by the hips and pulls him in.
Or maybe Noctis had a good-luck charm that was partly dangling down and he later finds out that it’s gone, but he doesn’t know who(what) snatched it and now he’s on a wild goose chase for it.
Perhaps Ignis was cleaning his glasses and he held it out over the water, he was trying to get the sun to reflect on it to see if he missed a spot and there’s just a sudden SPLASH- it’s gone and now he’s soaked.
Or Prompto got bored and was leaning over, and he just happened to be leaning down and getting too close to the water… And suddenly there are hands at his face and something looking him directly in the eye. (maybe if the mermaid was a bold and wily one, they could pull him in for a smooch before throwing him back)
But could you imagine though? In a grand place like that, that’s already full of wonderful scenic shots just waiting to be taken, if every now and then one of them snuck their way into a picture? Or every now and then surfacing to interact with people just to sate their own curiosity. Wily mermaids who nab something off of you whenever you aren’t looking- heck some of the vendors who are set on boats are paranoid and watch over their goods like a hawk just to make sure them sneaky little mermaids didn’t snitch anything.

Hell imagine if there was some that ventured out to Galden Quey. They become somewhat of an urban legend because no one manages to get a good look at them and never has there been a clear picture, so everyone’s like “It’s just a fish. You saw only just a fish why did you show me this picture of fish tail?”
The waters near Cape Caem? Now that’s where you got to watch out. Get too close to the shore when the mermaids hang around there and someone is bound to become lost treasure.

Fun oddly fluffy fic idea: Exile Obi-Wan on Tatooine loses his Jedi robe in classic Obi-Wan fashion, but since he doesn’t have the ability to go get another, he goes on this excessively intense mini-journey to get it back.

“What brings you to Jabba’s palace?”

“I just want my robe back.”

“YOU. WIZARD FROM THE WASTES. ARE YOU HERE TO STOP ME?!”

“Actually, I’ve come for my cloak. But now that you mention it, yes. I’ll stop you as well while I’m at it.”

“What do you bloody mean the person that has it is getting on that ship? Blast it.”

“You cut our fuel line! How did you know we were illegal slave traffickers?!”

“I didn’t. Also, that would be my robe you’re wearing. Kindly give it back before I take it back.”

Just because there’s an executive order doesn’t mean the thing will definitely happen. I have to remind myself of this so I don’t go lie down in a corner forever. Dumpster Fire is signing a slew of these because his stupider supporters think he’s actually doing something.

The Times is keeping track of what’s what and how many more steps are needed before some of this happens. And how many chances we have to fight it down. Take the Keystone Pipeline. It looks like all it needs is one more step. State Dept approval, but all the senior staff resigned in the last day. So good luck getting your shit together on that one–while the Canadian company is currently suing the US for $15 billion. It’s a mess.

Amortentia HC

So I’ve been noticing all these like 6th year Amortentia prompts and while I love them, I’m sitting here like??? isn’t Amortentia illegal for students to brew and like, you know, BANNED at Hogwarts???? Even if they were being supervised, it just sounds very problematic, even by Dumbledore’s standards. But I actually have my own idea of what happens. 

Let’s say it is 6th year, and potions class smells a lot like peppermint today, at least in Harry’s opinion. It’s almost sickening. Reminds him of Malfoy. Slughorn has Amortentia placed out on his desk, but Harry being Harry, doesn’t connect the two together. 

Meanwhile, Draco The Observant is having a panic attack 24/7 like “I know for a fact I smelled Potter in that potion?!?!?! What does this mean?!?!?!? Pansy he’s insufferable this must be a mistake-!” And the Slytherin common room is close to kicking Draco out for the amount of ranting he’s been doing. 

So eventually, around Christmas time, Dean and Seamus steal some Amortentia from Slughorn. They bring it up to the boy’s dorms and discuss with Ron what to do with it. They’ve opened it and are smelling it, laughing at what they find attractive (really, Ron, fried chicken?) when Harry comes waltzing in and without even thinking just goes “ugh, what smells like Malfoy”, because that’s the first person that comes to mind when he inhales. The other three boys are staring wide eyed in shock, until Seamus casually slips Dean a galleon and Ron starts laughing. This results in a night of the boys explaining things to Harry, and Harry realizing that, oh goody, life just got harder.

Draco, on the other hand, has pretty much accepted the fact and become Queer™, not even trying to hide it at this point. He’s winking at Harry, biting his lip at Harry, hell he even combined the two, but all he gets from boy wonder are confused looks and blushes. The Slytherins are just getting so done with his bullshit, even Snape is considering locking the two in a cupboard because he could smell the tension from another planet. At this point, the whole school is at the edge of their seat waiting for something to happen. 

So finally, Draco catches Harry alone in a hallway. He winks, Harry blushes and looks down, and Draco is done. He turns his ass around and slams Harry into a wall and kisses the confused look right off his face. Harry (who was secretly hoping Draco would do that) just goes with it, finally noticing the peppermint smell that plagued his senses anytime he stepped near Amortentia probably originated from one of Draco’s hair products. And he’s in utter bliss. 

phil is actually really quite “psychic” (intuitive is a better word for it i think) and he has no idea..i read tarot and my mom is a practiced tarot reader so i know inuitives when i see them usually. that video was so interesting for me. i have a pretty good understanding of what the cards he pulled mean, and i don’t think they could have been much more spot on relating to the current point he is in his life. phil’s reading was all pushing towards a change of scenery in at least one part of his life. fertility means the birth of a new project or life event, not “i’m gonna have a baby”. fertility is one of the best things to have when you are thinking of making a big decision because it basically means the birth of new prosperous ideas. so just as an fyi big things are coming this year with him but i don’t see it in the career world, as much as i see it in the personal world. also i’m am so praying for him to read dan bc i know it would be hella spot on since he is so intuitive.

highlights of my math prof’s t-shirts last semester:

  • wearing a grey t-shirt with a black square in the middle *pulls out chalk and writes the chain rule on the square* “usually i forget to erase this shirt”
  • back of a seemingly normal shirt has a bunch of math pickup lines written on it
  • wears a shirt w/complicated formulas on the front “so these are advanced physics formulas so i actually have no idea what they mean. it reminds me of how you all must feel when i teach you calculus”
  • “and the number I am referring to is…” *rips off sweater to reveal t-shirt with the letter e on it*
