There are certain aspects of Tumblr culture that I find really creepy.
Pulling receipts on people is one of them.
Even creepier, the people who go out of their way to send asks like “Just so you know, you reblogged so-and-so and they said something homophobic three years ago.”
Okay? So? I’m just here reblogging dog pictures and funny screen caps from trash tv shows. I don’t really care what so-and-so said three years ago.
You know who else said ignorant shit three years ago? Me.
You know who else said ignorant shit three years ago? You, probably.
I mean, if I reblog something from someone who is actively, currently, human garbage… like if I reblog something from someone who is on par with Donald Trump, go ahead and tell me.
Otherwise, maybe just let it go and stop pouring so much energy into policing the internet. Most of the people here are in their teens and early twenties. They are going to say ignorant shit that they regret!
If you are currently in your teens and twenties and you’re bristling at the idea that you too may be saying ignorant shit that you are going to regret, just you wait and see.
Growing up is a constant progression of looking back at your past self and thinking “Oh god, what the fuck was wrong with me?”
some simple (but effective) tips when your skin is not cooperating
hi friends, here are some tips i’ve learned over the years that help me keep my skin in check. feel free to add any tips that have benefitted you :)
wash your pillow case! this one can really be overlooked. i change/wash my pillow case once or twice a week, even when i don’t wash my sheets. this really helps makeup and bacteria from building up
probiotics. i know some of these supplements can be pricey, but if you can get your hands on some they are magic! i take one everyday. they support healthy gut flora which helps nourish skin, hair, and nails. you can also get probiotics from fermented foods like miso, kimchi, and sauerkraut.
vitamin c. so i started taking vitamin c supplements two weeks ago when i was trying to fight off a cold. the next week, i couldn’t believe how much my skin texture had improved. vitamin c is essential for the production of collagen and elastin that keeps skin toned and firm. it also helps regenerate vitamin e in the body (also super good for our skin)!!!
eat more foods with vitamin e. foods like avocados, almonds, olives, spinach, peaches, and tomatoes will make your skin v happy.
take your makeup off before a workout. i know this one seems so obvious but i honestly just started doing this. normally, i would go to the gym right after class when i still had makeup on. i don’t wear liquid foundation, but i would conceal or powder some areas. recently though, i’ve been going to the gym right when i wake up while my face is nice and clean and i think letting my pores breathe and sweat without the makeup on has helped so much!
reduce dairy consumption. for the past week or two, i unconsciously cut out a good majority of the dairy products i typically eat. even though this was unintentional, i began to notice that my skin was looking much more clear. conventional dairy products at the grocery store can contain antibiotics or added hormones that spike insulin in the body, causing breakouts. it can also lead to a rise in oil production that will fuel the breakouts. experimenting to see if this helps your skin could definitely be beneficial!
do not touch your face ever ever..never. just don’t touch your face. you may think your hands are clean but better safe than sorry.
sanitize your phone. !!!! think about this bc i think a lot of people forget but there is so much bacteria on that thing. once every week or two clean your phone screen to reduce the bacteria that could come in contact with your face!
Preview for my matsuhana zine piece. because i realized i didn’t even post anything. ugh .. i lost the coloration for this when i messed up my file so i had to do it TWICE…Makki still dressing like a clown.
the final birthright map, which has a closed-off room meant to facilitate a duel, showed up while i was in the training tower, but the two people who got locked in gay baby jail were a couple of healers who couldn’t actually hurt each other
A log a day keeps anxiety away 😂 am I right? Started the 100 days of bullet journal challenge, but I won’t post something everyday, more like twice a week :3
For those who asked if I had a studygram: yas I do now, cause one of you convinced me somehow 😂 my names allcutified_desi 🤗
Happy journaling everyone ❤
Highlights from the 1st session of my D&D campaign
(during character creation) Mum: I’m Trump-Tinyhands, a famous half-orc ballerina.
(while trying to enter a cursed church) D M: You (pixie character) enter the church, however, the second you enter you get distracted by a bright light, which you then fly towards blindly and continue to fly into it. Dylan, our Pixie: IT’S SO BRIGHT AND SHINY
(in a bar) Trump-Tinyhands: Drink! Drink! Drink! Drink! Me want drink! Drink! Drink! Dylan: Erm yes I think we might need a few more dozen pints for our friend over here, he’s not drunk enough.
(still in the bar) M'riqa, our Khajiit thief, talking to the barmaid: Hey, I’ve seen many pussies in my time, but if I pet you right will your purr? Barmaid: I will beat the shit out of you if you talk to me like that again. M'riqa: *sprints right out of the bar* Dylan: Damnit, come back here!
(going back to the cursed church) DM: Maybe Dylan should stop trying to enter the church. He’s a Loki-worshipper and this is the Church of The God of Mild Frostbite and That Very Annoying Feeling You Get After You Warm Your Hands Up After Being In The Cold That Makes Your Fingers Feel Like They’re Burning Trump-Tinyhands OOC: If that’s the God’s name, I can’t imagine just how long the sermons are.
(M'riqa spotted something pretty in the church and wants to steal it) M'riqa: I enter the church! DM: You try to enter the church, but it appears that you cannot. The curse on the church does not know what to do with you, so it simply becomes an invisible wall. Trump-Tinyhands: I think something’s going on with this church. Dylan: *sarcastically* I never would have thought of that!
(40 minutes into figuring out the church) M'riqa OOC: Does anybody have Detect Magic? Dylan OOC: Hell yeah I do! M'riqa OOC: Then go do it you winged bastard. Dylan: I cast Detect Magic on the church doorway. M'riqa OOC: 40 fucking minutes. 40 FUCKING MINUTES WE’VE SPENT ON THIS FUCKING CHURCH CURSE ONLY NOW TO FIND THAT THE BLOODY PIXIE HAD THE KEY TO THE WHOLE DAMN THING DM: You cast Detect Magic on the doorway. It seems that only followers of the God of Mild Fristbite and all that stuff can pass through the doorway. Dylan: I can’t, I’m Loki’s priest. Half-orc: What’s a priest? (too stupid to know what a god is) Dylan: It’s down to you, M'riqa. M'riqa: … I may or may not have sold my soul and devoted my life to Nocturnal. Is that a problem?
(later) M'riqa: Nocturnal, may I stray from your path for a moment while I infiltrate this church? DM: You poke yourself in the eye. That’s a no. M'riqa: Please? Come on, I’ll steal something to add to the glory of the Guild! DM: You sock yourself right in the nose. You are bleeding. M'riqa: Pretty please?? I’ll serve you in the afterlife for twice as long! DM: You stamp on your own foot. M'riqa: Before I go any further, if I ask one more time, will I or will I not keep my tail? DM: Nocturnal remains smugly silent. M'riqa: If someone had told me that this is the sort of thing that happens when you give yourself to a god, then I may have reconsidered my choice.
So I got some bad news today. Health stuff wise. This is personal stuff that’ll likely have a big impact on my writing, but ultimately it’s still personal so I’m going to put it under a read more. I apologise in advance to people phone-browsing.
Twice.... is not.... a national girl group yet. They haven't done anything to deserve that title???? Ya'll need to stop throwing that around like anyone can have it jfc
1. Using ‘national girl group’ in a meme text post means it’s kinda meant to be taken as not too-too seriously
2. ‘National girl group’ and ‘the Nation’s Girl Group’ are two separate concepts; just look at the actual Korean/Hangul and you can tell. Many groups are national girl groups because they are fairly well-known and hence, represent the nation. But only one can be theNation’s Girl Group. (Twice have been called both though, just fyi~)
3. Whether we personally agree with it or not, Twice is already considered by MANYto be the Nation’s Girl Group both inside and outside Korea. (To deny this would be like saying that Koreans don’t know more about their own pop culture than foreigners do.) Twice has become a household name with many iconic songs and dances, have a huge fan base, shattered countless records, are already recognized overseas, are the first girl group after SNSD to beat out countless boy bands in many different categories, have HUGE potential, etc. etc. etc.
The list goes on and on and on but I’ll let you see for yourself….
I rest my case.
P.S. I won’t list out every single record they’ve shattered and all of the many awards they’ve won, but this should give you a good idea:
I’ve lost him once, I can’t lose him twice (Newt x Reader)
Pairing: Newt Scamander/Reader
Warnings: Kinda angsty I guess
A/N: First imagine, I hope you to enjoy it English isn’t my mother language so sorry if there are grammatical mistakes
Request: Nope, this is because I’m trash
PD: God, I got a lot of trouble and I had to erased the original account where I post this and made other, so stressful, but here it is again! (Sorry for the ones who read and comment the original, love you peaches )
It was like you were the world’s favorite joke.
Like, how many chances are to fall head over heels for your best friend, twice?
Maybe one in a million, and you had to be the one, funny isn’t it? Yes, it isn’t.
Or maybe you didn’t fall in love twice, maybe you just never stopped loving him.
Newt Scamander was the cute loving Hufflepuff; with floppy cinnamon hair, beautiful hazel eyes and a sky of freckles that played along with his breathtaking shy smile; you got the luck to met in your first year at Hogwarts, and you became best friends really quickly, it was almost like a click. You two lived uncountable adventures like escape to the forbidden forest or hide a Niffler in his dorm.
He was your happiness, and you was his. An unbreakable friendship, or at least that was what you thought until third year. It was suppose to be wonderful, finally you’ll be able to receive Care of Magical Creatures, just you and Newt and a whole world of your beloved creatures.
That was the idea, but then, Leta Lestrange came into your life like a tornado, unexpected and destructive. At first you didn’t want to make it a big deal, trying to be a good friend and not to “monopolize” Newt, besides, by that time you were a little reluctant about your more than friendly feelings towards Newt, so you wanted to take it easy. The problem began when it wasn’t so easy to ignore how your escapes to the forbidden forest became hers, or when your dozens of hours of talking with Newt about whatever, became dozens of hours talking about Leta.
And it hurt, it was like feeling a Crucio curse over and over again, and after almost two years in the same situation, you couldn’t take it any more, and you two started to distance, and he became more and more attached to Leta, while you were suffering because of the realization that you had fell in love with your best friend, and you just lost him.
It was the beginning of the sixth year when Newt and you talked again, all the cabins at the Hogwarts’ Express were full, except for one, one you got to share with Newt, apparently Leta decided to spend the Christmas break at Hogwarts. At the begging there was a uncomfortable silence and a lot of stolen glances, then you started a really weird conversation, but it ended in laughs, like the beautiful old times… But you had to screw it.
Maybe you weren’t in all your senses when you brought up the subject of you two, and then Leta, you just couldn’t stop talking, it was almost a confession about your feelings, telling him how much you had miss him, and how Leta seems unfair with him sometimes, that she was just breaking your friendship, but you felt relieved because you were you, and Newt was Newt, and he would never get angry at you, right?
He didn’t yell at you, but you could felt his distressed icy voice stabbing your heart.
“For Merlin’s Beard Y/N, you can’t just dump me whenever you want and then return telling me that my, actually true fiend, is taking advantage of me. Can you please, I’m begging you, let me be happy, can you?”
A silent tear fell from his cheek while he abandoned the cabin in a race, you really didn’t notice the tears rolling down your face without any control until the Express’s whilst wake you up, until it was too late to run after Newt.
It was the last time you talked to him, you even didn’t see each other, it was officially over, he didn’t care about you, and you didn’t have to either, but you couldn’t help but care, far, far away you kept an eye on him, to make sure he was fine, sometimes you would find him sleep in the library and put a blanket over him, or a hot coco in his desk, although, he always thought it was Leta.
And you’re fine with that, looking after him in silence.
But you must break that silencie when you found out he was being expelled.
So you run.
You run as fast as you could.
Even when the salty water blur your eyes, you kept running, trying to catch the train whose whistle started to announce its departure.
His head pop out of a window, his teary eyes widen at your picture, running out of breath after him.
“I never dump you! I never stopped caring! I will always care!”
A small smile appeared in his sad face, his soft eyes were seeing directly to yours “I will owl you!” He said before disappearing from your vision.
“I love you…”
And you didn’t see Newt for years, sometimes you owl each other, but it wasn’t constant, you just know he had became a Magizoologist, and you’re so happy for him, actually you worked in the same department as him in the Ministry of Magic, but you entered by the time he was already in some sort of trip, so you never saw each other.
Until you got a new work, apparently someone in your division who was writing a book of magical creatures, make some “minor” disturbances in New York during his trip, your assignment was to assist and monitor him.
Big was your surprise when you found out that your new coworker was no one but Newton Artemis Fido Scamander, your best friend, your first love, the one you have “recovered from”.
“Newton” you said with a high pitch of surprise.
“Y/N” he smiled with gleaming eyes “You can call me Newt, you know?” A playful shy smile was painted in his freckled face.
And from that moment there was that “click” again, but this time, you will do it the right way, you wouldn’t fall for him, so you wouldn’t lost him.
Except that you didn’t do it the right way.
You actually fall for him, again.
But how could someone not fall for the caring, loving, handsome, shy, fantastic, quirky and absolutely adorable Magizoologist?
And that’s why you couldn’t blame Tina for falling for him too.
Apparently Newt has the same feelings for her.
So the story was repeating.
But you’re going to be strong, and do it the right way, you couldn’t get distant with Newt, again, you couldn’t lost him.
But nooo, you suck doing the right way in this too.
You sight as you see the hot coco in your mug.
“Oh hun, please stop.” Said Queenie, the poor legilimens who has been all the week listening to your useless thoughts because you have been remembering your story with Newt all over again.
Maybe it was because you sure was losing Newt again!
“Maybe you should talk to him.”
“I don’t know Queenie… you know I have already lost him… And I don’t want to do it again…” The blonde and you had met in your Hogwarts years, but only by letters, you got involved in a funny event where you send an owl randomly and you met someone new from every part of the world, Queenie received yours, since then you had been owling each other.
You were surprised but mostly glad when Newt returned to New York with you to make a visit to the Goldstein sisters, and find out that this Queenie was actually the Queenie you knew, because it didn’t matter if you haven’t met her in person until that day, to you, Queenie Goldstein was your best friend.
“Oh dear, you’re my best friend too! How sweet!”
You blush slightly and chuckle, the bubbly character of Queenie always cheer you up.
“Newt will be jealous if he finds out!”
Your face fades a little, sure he was going to, but just because of friendship.
“Oh hun! I’m sorry I didn’t meant to… You… Well, I insist you to talk with Newt.”
You look at her, maybe she was right… Queenie was right most part of the time.
The legilimens laughed. “Well thank you!”
“Yeah… Maybe I should talk to Newt about this, even if he doesn’t see me the way I see him, also some time together could bright me up!”
“Yes! Now got into that case!”
Now you laugh, it was feeding time anyway.
“Thanks Queenie! You’re the best!” you said before going into the case, jumping a little.
“Oh, I know” Queenie smiled, suddenly her face went pale and her smile faded.
You were in Newt’s small shed, rolling up the sleeves of your working shirt, when someone open the door that separated the comfy room from a fantastic world full of the creatures that you utterly love. The handsome magizoologist made his appearance being completely adorable.
“Hi!” you greeted smiling “It’s feeding time! Also, can I talk to you about something?”
“Um, sure” his lopsided smile appeared in his face. “But, erm, it’s just that I’ve already feed the animals, with Tina.”
“Oh…” by the corner of your eye you could see Tina behind Newt, holding hands with him.
“It’s okay right? It’s just, I needed to talk some stuff with her and… Merlin’s beard, a-are you mad?”
You were staring directly to the floor, trying to hide your face. “Oh… Oh no, Newt, i-it’s fine” you forced a smile to him “Honestly I’m like super glad, I was too tired today! Now that I don’t have anything to do, I will go up an rest. Bye!” You climb up quickly and run out of the building just to collide into Queenie, who was in the front door fixing her scarf.
“A-Are you going out?” You said cleaning your tears, it was useless to lied to her, she was a legilimens.
Queenie nod with a sympathetic smile. “I’m going to MACUSA for some papers, and then I’ll visit Jacob, do you wanna come?”
“I sure want to” you link your arm with hers and you to stared to walk, you really needed distraction.
The walk with the blonde really helped, you were amazed by the architecture of the MACUSA building, and Jacob’s pastries really helped lighten your mood, the owner of the bakery decided to walk you home.
So the five of you were currently having dinner in a, little, uncomfortable silence.
“You know? Y/N went with me to MACUSA!” Queenie exclaimed out of nowhere, you lift up your face with curiosity.
“Oh nice! Did you like it?” Tina smiled at you excited.
“Oh, yes, the architecture is very catching” you said shyly playing with a baby carrot in your plate.
“Well Y/N just looked interested in architecture, but some Aurors looked more interested in Y/N” Queenie said with a playful demeanor.
Your ears went red.
“Queenie!” you scold ashamed.
“Oh! And then, at the bakery, a bunch of no-majs were thinking a little bit loud about Y/N too!”
Newt seemed to flinch, you looked at him with curiosity, why did he reacted that way…? Your mind managed to create a lot of theories and conspiracies.
Then you see it.
Tina’s arm had brushed Newt’s. That was why he flinched, because he was shy and cute, and skin contact with another human affected him in such a beautiful way…
“Yeah… I-It was funny” you smiled a little “Jacob’s delicious creations has already satisfied my appetite, so sorry” you excuse yourself and went to Newt’s and yours bedroom.
You went down into the case, just to stopped to see Leta’s picture, it still hurts that Newt has a photo of Leta but none of you…
A sigh scape from your mouth as you went to the Niffler’s cave, the little pest was so nice at you. The furry animal curled up at your chest when you carry him in a hug.
“Hey there buddy…” you said rubbing his belly, he made content sounds making you chuckle. “You know? I wish I could be a Niffler, to stole Newt’s shiny golden heart…”
You see the small creature as a tear rolled down to your sad smile.
“Why was Leta a better Niffler than me?” You sit against the Niffler’s habitat cooing him. “I mean, I understand that Tina is a better Niffler, she is so cool and badass and just… I dunno, although Leta was badass too… Maybe it’s because I’m clumsy sometimes? Or do I cry too much?” you looked up to the sky “I’m a terrible little pest… Maybe I should have stayed away from Newt, I would like to run away…”
The Niffler make a little squeak, afraid of losing you.
You chuckle hugging him more “But I have you… And all the creatures, the case… Everything… Newt…” you sight while your voice cracked “Newt… Why did I had to fall in love with him…?” you cried, stressed “At Hogwarts I thought It was just a crush, but all this time, I never move from him, what does that means? That I will love him forever?” You lift up the Niffler trying to figure out an answer.
“I certainly hope so…” a well-known voice said behind you.
Slowly, but like, really slowly, you turn around to see Newt’s head pop out behind the Niffler’s tree.
“O-Oh my god… I didn’t, I-I wasn’t… I… I…” you covered your face trying to hide your shame, the Niffler run into his shiny cave, like giving you two some privacy.
You looked at him, making the effort to not break at his sight “I-Im so sorry, I-I didn’t meant to ruin our friendship, and I don’t want anything to change! I know you would never liked me back and that’s why I never told you! We can just pretend you didn’t heard anything!” you smiled, in an attempt to be strong.
“I’m tired of pretending, Y/N…”
Your heart broke a little, the fear running through your veins.
“S-So… Y-You want me to disap-”
Newt interrupted you abruptly.
“I’m tired of pretending I’m not in love with you, Y/N.”
Your eyes widened as you opened your mouth in surprise. “Y-You… You what?” Were you dreaming?
“I’m completely in love with my best friend, with you.”
“But you and Tina…” in your mind, this wasn’t making any sense.
Newt sigh walking in front of you, he helped you stand up holding you close to him.
“Yeah, that’s true, I was attracted to Tina, and also to Leta, but it’s not like what I feel for you, and I thought they could make my feelings go away… But they couldn’t, and I didn’t notice how much did it hurt you…” you could notice the glossy regret in his eyes as he caresses your cheek. “I… Queenie show me your letters to her… The ones were you told her how sad you were when Leta came, and how you cared about me in silence even though I always thought it was Leta, I also notice the marks of tears in the paper…” he sighed “Oh Y/N… I’m so sorry, I was so… So confused, and mad, because when I decided to tell you my feelings you started to get away, and I thought it was because you’re tired of me, and that you could never love me… But I didn’t realize I was the one that was pushing you back…”
You wanted to say something, but all this information gathering into your brain was to much to stated an understandable sentence, so you just stared directly at Newt’s eyes, at those beautiful green sea eyes that shines with a hint of ambar like a sun.
“And I didn’t notice either that it was happening again… I don’t love Tina… She is a really good friend, she was helping me to get over my feelings with you because I couldn’t take it anymore and I didn’t wanted to lose you…”
Newt looked directly in to your eyes, you move your hand softly and stroke his cheek, then in a delicate movement you pinched his cheek.
He flinched at the sudden attack. “What was that for?”
“I wanted to make sure I wasn’t dreaming…”
A little smile spread across your face as Newt’s thumb cleaned away your sad tears.
You cut him off, brushing your lips against his in a subtle, sweet movement, like an invitation for a dance, which Newt gladly accepted when he placed his hands around your waist, pulling you as closer as he could and shutting down his eyes to concentrate in the feeling of your lips, as the beat of your hearts started to race, the rhythm of the dance became more passionated, you and Newt had a perfect synchrony, the perfect match.
As the dance finished and you two pull out to breath, it was everything understood. You and Newt smiled to each other in a silent agreement. He pull you into a hug, ready to live the love you two have deserved for so many years.
Neither of you were going to lose each other, never.
You and him, started dancing again.
“Why don’t you have a photo of me like Leta’s?”
Newt sight as he searched for something in his peacock blue coat, the he suddenly take out a A6 sized album full of photos of you two and just you.
“Oh…” you blushed.
“Wait, I think I have other photos here” he searched again, making you chuckle.
“Oh! You really love me, don’t you Mr. Scamander?”
“Just a smidge” he said with a happy flattered smile.
