i had such a great time!

The Company Picnic

“Hello? Night Vale? I told you I would be back. It took longer than I thought, but I have returned from whatever horrible place I have gone. Along the way, in the vortex, I saw a grotesque man. A foul devil of a man! And he attacked me! I tried to choke him to death, but I remembered. I remembered what I told you, and I let him life. I let that woeful beast live. I am sure he is not without his wounds and bruises, and I pity that he must return to that awful, awful place from whence he came and to where I most unfortunately visited. But somehow, I am happy that he is alive. That I am alive. That you are alive. That we are alive.”

i had a dream that lance and keith were pilots for international airlines, (lance being the captain, keith being his co-pilot), and whenever they got bored and/or wanted to pass the time, lance would leave ‘blue’ on autopilot so him and keith can safely make out in peace. it was great  

What I want to do today: Get blackout wasted until I pass out without having to think at all.

What I need to do today: Anything but that.

What I will do today: Drink enough green tea that 30 minutes between bathroom breaks seems like a lot. Overdose on homeopathic self-care because I do not know the meaning of moderation, apparently. Get queasy on apple cider vinegar, or maybe it’s just all the liquids in my stomach. Think about blowing off work to nap. Don’t blow off work to nap. Tell my dog I love him. (OK, I do this multiple times every day, so.) Google “mood boosting foods” and eat as many of them as I have in my house, which is several, surprisingly. Smile at myself in the mirror. Sigh a lot. Do mundane chores whenever my mind starts to wander (wonder?) for even a second. Realize I have 27 plants in my ~1700 sq ft house. Falter for a minute, cringing over the former you, the you who ordered well-done steak at Gibson’s in Chicago. Have a sudden urge to tell him that I’m different, now. Now I like my steak medium rare, so take that! Have a sudden urge to go back. Back to Gibson’s, back to [insert six years of relationship moments here], back to when I was naive enough to believe that if you love someone enough things like timing don’t matter. Have a sudden urge to never, ever see him again. Keep the windows open, but turn the fireplace on. Take Jack for extra walks because fresh air. Absolutely do not think about what Might Have Been, under different circumstances, because I don’t believe in that, right? Cry a little bit, until I get angry with myself for being sad? confused? conflicted? grateful? over a relationship that ended 10 years ago. Consider putting whiskey in my next cup of tea. Don’t put whiskey in my next cup of tea. Sigh again. Dream about a good night’s sleep.

anonymous asked:

Are you back from Paris? How was it? Could you understand what people were saying? Like did most people speak French. Since you talk English. I just wondered that lol. Anyway hope you had a great time!

I am back!

Most people I encountered knew at least basic conversational English which was very kind of them and made me feel bad cause like, i’m in YOUR country I’m so sorry. Everyone of course by default was speaking French and since I was with someone who knew French they mostly continued speaking French. Until Sara got to a point where she wasn’t sure what to say and then they would usually switch to English or a mixture of both. However regardless of the language barrier I realized upon visiting that a ridiculous amount of French is totally guessable. Like as a person who knows maybe twenty words of French if it was written down I could probably figure out what was happening. 

The trip itself was incredible and very very inspiring. People aren’t kidding when they say its one of the most beautiful cities in the world, every step was aesthetically everything I love about architecture and environments. It was personally very awesome to see because I draw Paris so much and thus research its architecture rigorously. Like I would post every picture I took but its mostly reference images that I was taking dozens of to later recreate or reference. 

The Curse of the Dragon Witch Part VIII: Logan, Alone

The tag list has LITERALLY GOTTEN SO LONG that I have officially decided to put it at the end of the fic. Both the tag list for general and the tag list for this fic have been included. If your tag doesn’t work, blame tumblr. If I forgot to tag you, blame me. It’s… it’s a little difficult to keep up with the demand. Like wow. You guys really like my stuff. Which is great. But at times, it’s a lot to keep up with. I digress. I hope you enjoy the chapter!

You can read this on AO3 if you wish, or read this fic from the beginning on AO3.   


Logan adjusted his glasses, pushing them up the bridge of his nose and looking around the woods, unsure what to expect. Ever since Roman had run off from their group it had been between he and Patton to periodically search. He glanced at his wrists, which had previously been identical to Virgil’s, and wondered if the other side would scar from his close call. He had told Patton that Virgil could not die, but truthfully he wasn’t completely sure about his survival, either. He shook his head. Now was not the time for illogical things such as silly, icky emotions. He could deal with his worrisome feelings towards Virgil later.


Thomas walked upstairs, having requested a private moment with the sides, away from Talyn and Joan. Stepping on several papers on his way, he looked at all the drawings, writings, and scribbles. It was a lot to look at; poems, songs, music notes, ideas, all scrawled everywhere, sometimes missing the paper and going onto the wall itself. Thomas ducked into his bedroom and sat on the edge of the bed, emotionally numb, looking at the madness that had come from his own head in disbelief. Surely he hadn’t done all of this, had he? No one could have such an influx of energy, an influx of ideas…

because-cur-non  asked:

BEX

When I first saw this message I thought you were just yelling at me in disappointment and I didn’t even know what that would be about but my reaction was “that’s fair.”

B - A pairing–platonic, romantic or sexual–that you initially didn’t consider, but someone changed your mind.

Hmm. I can’t really think of any for Ham, tbh– I formed my ship opinions pretty quickly there. I think I definitely grew to love Spiderbyte not from any one person, but from seeing a ton of good quality Spiderbyte art and subconsciously realizing it was great (though if I had to name one person, artbytesslyn’s Spiderbyte stuff is all time). Also when she was staying with me @runawayforthesummer had me watch a couple episodes of Reign and both Kenna and Bash and Kenna and Mary are adorable, and they all deserve better.

E - Have you added anything cracky/hilarious to your fandom? If so, what?

I think the closest stuff that would come to this is this brotp Jeggy fic and this Shadow Step supplement

X - A trope which you are almost certain to love in any fandom.

Okay me going hard for the Talon squad, combined with my love of Azula and her crew, made me realize that 1) I love female villains and 2) me writing terrible people looking at other terrible people and going “guess this is as good as it’s going to get” and then making something powerful and loving out of that is me writing friendship p/0/r/n and I need to be stopped.

But uhhhh more generally– found family, Monster AUs, characters that are expected to be strong and stoic getting to be vulnerable and emotional.


Fandom Asks!

paladins in bows! bc thats cute! 

also the draws are available as stickers on redbubble!! 

things I wish autism research actually tried to figure out:
  • why caffeine works for some of us, but not all, and even then it often depends on the way you take it and the dosage
  • how come all of us have gastrointestinal problems?
  • addendum to the above: what exactly are our gastrointestinal problems? are we genetically more likely to have autism be comorbid with gluten sensitivity/colitis/IBS/lactose intolerance/whatever else or is it something completely different? is it psychosomatic? the fuck
  • okay but how does being sensory-seeking work. and what does stimming do to your brain. what neurological function are we facilitating with flapping hands and rocking back and forth and spinning? wouldn’t it be great if we had a serious long-term study of the brain on stimming?
  • are you more likely to be autistic and LGBT?
  • what are things we do better than neurotypicals?

but no it’s always “how do we train the animals to be something they’re not” or “but what made you this way??” or “Time To Find A Cure”

Moriartys suits requested by @ambientcrystals

The whole “Lucius was abusive with Draco” thing has always been so funny to me. Really, I don’t get how people are able to believe something so silly. 

Seriously, guys, wake the fuck up, if Lucius had been abusive with his son, he wouldn’t have been a part of the series. You know why? Because Narcissa “If you attack my son again I shall ensure that is the last thing you ever do” Malfoy would have killed him ten times in a row.
