i have loved them ever since i read the books

Before you shit on Silver and Madi being together romantically on Black Sails just consider that Long John Silver, one of the single most iconic pirate characters ever written, has always had a wife of African descent!!! and in the 183 years since it was written ONLY ONE other adaptation, not even THE ORIGINAL, has ever shown a Black woman respect before now! If her character is not completely erased or overwritten, it was suggested that there was no conceivable possibility that he actually loved her or that she could possibly be attractive or desirable simple because she was Black. So, nope, sorry, it isn’t progressive to ignore her just to ship him with a man. It’s incredible that Madi Scott even exists as a character, let alone that she is shown to be loved and integral to the storyline and Silver’s character in this show. If you erase that for a ship between two white men you’re literally not more “progressive” than Robert Louis Stevenson, who in the 17th century wasn’t even homophobic, but was certainly racist. Don’t erase Madi as Silver’s love interest, it’s disgusting.

Please give me some pointers on little demon fashion!
Asked by 秋花さん

Some points to note are— As expected, the most basic would be that a demon’s favorite color is black— And preferably, the more items the better♡ Because if you go with the simply-coordinated outfits that are the trend now, you’ll just end up all dressed in black♪ That’s why winter is the perfect season for little demon fashion♡ Tights and boots are definitely perfect!


YOU
What sort of loungewear do you wear at home?
Asked by 松海鳳さん

Sorry, this— Is it alright for me to say this? Somehow it’s a bit— I feel like Ruby-chan or Yocchan will get mad at me for this— but well since you asked I’ll just reveal the answer♪ Just as everyone imagined!! Sweatsuits and jerseys!♡♡ I still love wearing my middle school’s jersey even now~♪


HANAMARU
To the book-loving Hanamaru-chan, just how many books do you have in your room?
Asked by 紫鮫さん

Ah— what should I do, I never really counted them before— I don’t know zura… Hmm, maybe, I have 2 large bookshelves and 3 smaller paperback-size bookshelves so— around that much♡ Ever since childhood, I would always go to Numazu’s bookshop on my off days and buy entire paper-bags filled with books— I remember being filled with joy over it!


DIA
Since you like reading, do you talk about books with your fellow book-lover Hanamaru-chan?
Asked by ラプラスのbox小宮さん

Maru-chan and I actually have rather different taste in books— As one can tell, she prefers comparatively serious literary fiction, while I like books written by female authors. Things written from a female perspective. But— At the very least I talk about books with her more than I do with my little sister Ruby, so occasionally it feels almost as though Maru-chan is my real sister instead— Well if I say that, Ruby would certainly get mad♡


RIKO
When you paint, what sort of things do you mostly paint?
Asked by ともちさん

From the start— What I painted was mostly sceneries, and occasionally images of still life— But after coming to Uchiura, I’ve started painting portraits a bit. Compared to Tokyo where I’ve lived all my life, Uchiura is filled with overwhelmingly beautiful sceneries such as the sea, mountains, forests and Mt. Fuji— So even I find it strange that I’ve switched to painting portraits instead♡ Now— I want to paint everyone’s smiles.


CHIKA
I want to know the level of Chika’s talent in table-tennis♪
Asked by かっちゃん!さん

Needless to say, I’m at the level of the Olympic athlete Mizutani— or at least that’s what I would like to say, but that’s obviously a bit impossible— Tehehe♡ But I can smash quite well! Lately I’ve managed to beat Kanan-chan all the time!! Without trouble!! Plus when we were kids, I always lost to the older Kanan-chan. I’m definitely the champion of table-tennis in Uchiura♡


KANAN
Are there any stars or constellations you like?
Asked by 燃え上がれ、俺の小宇宙よ!さん

I like the winter constellations, because the sky is clear and you can see the stars quite well— And though it might be overly common, I like the Orion and Cassiopeia constellations♡ Back in elementary school— When I first found them during the early moths of the winter constellation, I was moved by how those two were easy to find— and came to like stars because of that. It tells us the position of the North Star even when out at sea, isn’t that role romantic?


MARI
Does Starbright have any other horses as friends?

Asked by 鈴生昴さん

Right now, it’s alone in its stable— so while it’s sad, it doesn’t have any other horses as friends, but it seems like it’s friends with the cats and penguins raised on the island. Hehe— Isn’t it amazing, for it to have penguins as friends— Living in a hotel is also interesting in that aspect. So Cute♪ I’m certain it’ll make friends with the sea lions and dolphins while living here too♡♡


RUBY
If you were to keep a pet, what would it be?
Asked by ハマチャさん

I’m absolutely terrified of dogs so— maybe a cat? Ah, but then if it got mad and lashed out with its claws with a snarl that would be scary too… What should I pick. Something smaller— I know, a rabbit might be great♡ It doesn’t bark or bite, and doesn’t scratch— I want to sleep together with a fluffy and kind rabbit♪ ♪♡☆

Writing Prompts!

Hello Guys! So a while back I was thinking about coming up with some angsty, fluffy, and smutty writing prompts for everyone! And since I won’t be able to do any of these for now, I would be more than happy if you guys want to use them for inspiration or fics/drabbles! 💕 


Fluff:

1.      “I’m not much into books, but I’d love to hear you read for me.”

2.      “My bed has grown bigger, and colder ever since you left.”

3.      “I have been with countless of other women, but none of them have given me the warmth and satisfaction that you have.”

4.      “Your scent gives me life.”

5.      “Well, there certainly is one thing that’s more beautiful than these stars.”

6.      “Do you still remember our first time together?”

7.      “If there’s anything that would make you more beautiful than being naked, it’s that wedding dress.”

8.      “Yes, I may have a cold heart, but that does not mean that it doesn’t burn when you’re with me.”

9.      “You said you wanted us to see the world, but—I am afraid that I am already looking at mine.”

10.   “I am stronger with you.”

Angst:

11.   “Let me suffer all for you.”

12.   “I have been betrayed, stepped upon, and thrown around like a stray dog…and this is what you came to tell me?”

13.   “You can dream all you want, but to think that I could ever be with a monster like you is beyond fantasy.”

14.   “I am sorry that this has happened to you, but I cannot stay here, not anymore.”

15.   “What part of stay away from me can’t you comprehend?”

16.   “Look at you, walking this road all alone with no family nor friends to help you. I am deeply touched.”

17.   “You’re a dead man walking, nothing’s left in you but drying flesh and brittle bones.”

18.   “If it is my life you desire, then take it already.”

19.   “There was one thing she/he told me before she/he died, and it was that she/he wanted me to suffer. And I fear that it’s happening.”

20.   “So, you’re trying to tell me that…everything I have believed in, was nothing but a lie?”

 

Smut:

21.   “I’ll be back to finish you off. Stay here.”

22.   “Do you think that you could just wear that and get away with it?”

23.   “Let me put this belt to good use.”

24.   “You’re making me want to do things to you.”

25.   “This bed won’t handle what we are about to do…”

26.   “I just want to bend you over this desk.”

27.   “You never struck me as the dominant one, but please don’t stop.”

28.   “Let me feel your hands in my hair, as you scratch my back.”

29.   “Oh this? Guess it’s just another one of your bruises.”

30.   “If you can still walk after this, then I’m not done with you just yet.”

harry, ron and hermione have been there for me when no one else was. this series gave me the strength to keep going when i just wanted to give up, inspired me to write my first ever fanfic, and showed me how stories have the power to change the world. thank you, harry potter, for the years of all night binges to read the new book before going to school so i wouldn’t be spoiled, thank you for giving me somewhere to go whenever i needed hope, thank you for creating magic both imagined and real. my love for these books hasn’t diminished in the years since i first read them, and i know that i’m going to keep coming back to them, until the very end.

grey-skies-full-moon  asked:

Being homeschooled, I don't have a school story, but since we're talking about reading... I genuinely don't remember a time when I couldn't read. My mom likes to tell the story of one-year-old me, pointing at the screen and shouting "E!" as Sesame Street talked about the alphabet. Mom always said I taught myself to read because I couldn't stand the world keeping secrets from me. :P And I've been reading and writing ever since.

I love this! My step-dad told me that words would always be a part of my life and had been from an early age. And he was right!

Hi! I'm asking as much of the Children of the Earth (the ASoIaF meta-tumblr community) this... what are/is *the* crucial, essential element(s), if you could be that precise, of ASoIaF that makes you think 'yup, this is a series worth pouring tons of time, words and blood into'? Even through any and all *really* frustrating elements (Dead Ladies Club, undeconstructed misogyny, uncomfortable orientalism, slaver bears and weaker writing points)?Thank you in advance and hope you have a good day!

Hi! Lots of cool people giving lots of great answers: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5

I love good worldbuilding. I wanna touch “a little bit of creation that hasn’t had all the awe and the wonder ripped from it yet”. That’s my favorite kind of fantasy story, where the world itself has been crafted as carefully as the characters. I’m like GRRM, I wanna walk under new stars, over the hills and far away. For all that I complain about his worldbuilding (@grrm, i’m still waitin for the names of those western hills, the clock is ticking here), grrm is a good worldbuilder. He’s made very complex societies, to the point that real academics study and write papers about ASOIAF economics, and law, and geology, and sociology, and that’s exactly the type of stuff I love. I wanna visit distant worlds and see how they work. I wanna sit in their libraries and study their books and read all their history. Oh gosh, the number of fantasy libraries I’ve wanted to visit, ever since I was a little girl … and grrm makes it happen. I like worlds that have a history to them, to know that there’s so much beneath the surface, even if I’ll never get to see it … just the fact that it’s there makes Westeros a place worth visiting. 

And I love GRRM’s romanticism, how richly emotional the story is, how beautiful… “He dreamt an old dream, of three knights in white cloaks, and a tower long fallen…” GRRM makes you care. Maybe you don’t care about everybody – I certainly don’t – but you care about somebody while reading ASOIAF. He makes you care intensely, beyond reason, to the point where you’d willingly clobber somebody over the head with a frying pan because you care so much. The ones you care about become like your friends, or your own family. And you’ve suffered for these characters, whether it’s the Red Wedding or the Purple Wedding or whatever emotional trauma you’ve shared with your favs.

And I like how GRRM approaches morality, I love Tyrion, whose such a great example of a morally grey, compelling character. And most of all, GRRM’s a damn good storyteller. 

So I made a weekly planner I truly intend to use!! (It looks so empty but it’s the summer semester and I only have one class!)I just found out about the studyblr community and it is so, so inspiring. I am sharring it with you as my first ever contribution to the studyblr! Yay!

I made four versions on the variation of the tiny deers at the top (I love them, but maybe someone won’t want them there!) and the blanks for the daily objectives. My personal objectives are 1) work on school things 2) read a few pages of a book since I’m doing the “2015 Reading Challenge” 3) write a minimum of 100 words of anything and 4) spend less money!

With the deers

One blank version

Two blanks version

Without the deers

If you use it or make a variation of it please like or reblog so I know I helped someone! Thanks! :) Oh and I’m not a study blog, I’m a hockey blog: don’t follow or you’ll be invaded by handsome dorks.

EDIT: There is a Monthly Expenses Chart that matches this planner.

Captain Underpants!!!!!

I started reading the books when I first started to read and have loved them ever since. The stories were full of the hilarious toilet humor that any kid loves, with a lovable and ridiculous hero vs bad guy theme.  George and Harold’s comics were what helped inspired me to make my own stories no matter what any grown up thought about them, the little flip-o-ramma parts were my favorite (I’ve made to many to count on my own from the little paper wrappers for silverware at restaurants). So happy that the movie has finally come!

Thanks Dav for inspiring this young little lost autistic girl!! 

anonymous asked:

Hello, what's the point of collecting books? Of creating a home library? When you can visit the library anytime? Don't take this as me being judgmental, i'm just curious. Thanks!

Hi! Well, first of all I don’t think there has to be a point. You can collect books simply because you enjoy doing it? I do it because I love books, I love having my own library. It’s been a dream of mine ever since I was a kid. I don’t agree with you because you can’t visit the library anytime especially if you don’t live close to one of them. Even if you can you can’t find every book you want to read there. One of the pleasures of collecting books is because you can pick them up whenever you want. Personally I enjoy underlining the parts I enjoy in a book. I love going back to read later to remember what it made me feel like and why I enjoyed that book. You can’t do that with the library books. I’m not a fan of going to the library and getting books unless it’s for academic purposes. Collecting books is one of the most enjoyable hobbies there is. Also it’s simply amazing to have those beautiful looking shelves, looking at them and realizing how much knowledge and inspiration they gave to you in your life time. It’s a joy to have them! There is nothing I enjoy more than buying books even if it will make me broke at the end of the month because it’s worth it. I actually dream of having a library with a ladder in my future home lol. Obviously this is just my personal opinion. People should read what they want, they should get them wherever they want it from as long as they read.

anonymous asked:

Omg I just found your story from a reblog and I read the whole thing yesterday afternoon! IT WAS SO GOOD JUST AMAZING!!! I was literally on my toes the whole time waiting for the bad thing to happen lol They are the best OFC and it was so different to stuff I've been reading. I'm sad it's over lol So I just came by to tell you thanks for writing an amazing story 👏🏼👏🏼 but Also since I'm new here, do you plan to write a sequel or do some novellas??? I'll take anything really 😂

You made my day! I have been smiling since I saw this.  I have a couple of ideas for some one shots about them in the future.  Just to update their story.  Who knows?  I might try to write Kacey’s books next.  Cook’s Postulates might be fun to write.

Welcome to the crazy world of Tumblr! We’re all kind of fun. 

If you need some Harry fics, you can’t go wrong with @niallandharrymakemestrong.  She wrote one of the hottest things I’ve ever read (Midnight Memories of a Temporary Fix–Narry).  Plus she’s just lovely.

@whoopsharrystyles  just finished Steam (it was just effing super heated Steamy), Snog Me Senseless is sweet and wonderful and she has tons more.  Masterlist

@melissas173 has some lovely pieces (check out Parking).  I wish she would write more. (Yes I did, in fact, just call you out)  Masterlist

@aggresivelyfriendly has some wonderful pieces (Views is smoking as is Divide)  Masterlist

@the-well-rested-one has a magnum opus that she is re-releasing a bit at a time.  It’s a wonderful and timely epic book about going on tour with Harry called 25 tickets. (First rule of book club is we don’t talk about book club). 

And if, by chance, you are a Niall fan as well, @lucyvanpelt78 has written the funniest, wonderful, great OFC Zoe in her series Unlikely.

Thanks again!  And Happy reading!

Admit It

Pairing: Theo x Reader

Summary: Kira, Lydia and Y/N are studying in the library when they notice Theo across the room, they start talking about him and they make you reveal something interesting which Theo overhears with his werewolf abilities and teases you later about it.

Side Note: I had this idea in my head all day that I just had to write a imagine based around this gif. Don’t know if it’s good or not, but enjoy reading it x



“Tell me if you had the chance you wouldn’t love to spend at least one hot night with him?”

You and Lydia looked up from your books to see who Kira was referring too.

Both of you saw Theo standing a few meters away flipping pages from a book.

“Okay first off your with Scott and I’m with Stiles”, Lydia responded.

“Yes I know, but a certain someone here is single” Kira turned to you and grinned, sending you a wink in the process.

It took you a minute to register what she was referring too, and your eyes went wide and you shook you head, “No, no…absolutely not Kira!”

“Oh come on, tell me that your not a least bit attractive to him?”.

Lydia was now paying full attention to you as well, and she gave you a smile. Knowing full well what each of them was trying to get you to admit.

“I totally get what Kira is saying, spill in Y/N. Ever since Theo came back to Beacon Hills you have been acting weird”.

“I completely disagree with that, and I have nothing else to say”. You went back to reading the book that was in front of you, but it didn’t last long when you still could fell the stares of both Lydia and Kira. Putting down the book, you sighed and turned to both of them. “Okay what now?”

“We know” Kira said.

“Know what?” you responded.

“Y/N we love you, but I think it’s time to admit your little crush on Theo.

You looked again in Theo’s direction and you had to admit he was pretty attractive. And there was something about him that you couldn’t put your finger on. However he was bad news and you told yourself the day you moved here that getting involved with someone like Theo, was a big no.

“I have no idea what you both are talking about”. Kira and Lydia were your best friends but admitting that Theo intrigued you was something you couldn’t do.

“Lydia and I wouldn’t judge you no matter what. Come on we can particular see the sexual tension between you and Theo.”

By now your face was probably red and a totally give away, not knowing how long you could keep this up, you cracked.

“Fine, yes I’m attracted to Theo. Is that what you want me to say?”

“See that wasn’t so hard Y/N” Lydia said.

You didn’t even want to look at any of them, you knew that this was going to come and bite you back in the ass. Kira and Lydia both stood up and packed up their things, they both had dates with Scott and Stiles which meant they had to leave you all alone to finish studying. Not minding that at all, you told them to go and have fun. Finally having some peace and quiet you went back to the reading, noticing that there was one book missing you sighed in frustration at the thought of having to go search of it. Getting up from your seat, you went to find the book.

Browsing the shelves one by one, you finally found the shelf the book was meant to be on. At this point you were wondering if it was even here since you couldn’t see it, being so caught up on locating this book you didn’t notice a presence behind you.

“Need any help?”

Jumping from hearing an unexpected voice you turned around and came face to face with Theo, who was now smirking at the reaction he got. Quickly composing yourself you said “No thank you, I’m fine.” Not wanting to give him any more satisfaction you turned back around again.

“It looks like you may need some help love” Theo said while you felt him close the distance so now you had no where to go. Trying very hard to not let Theo’s presences throw you off, you counted to 3 and took several deep breathes.

“I’m pretty sure I’m capable of finding a damn book on my own”.

“I didn’t know you were this feisty Y/N”

Theo reached his arm above yours and pulled down a book, he whispered in your ear “Find the book you were looking for babygirl. I guess you needed my help after all”

Deciding to stand your ground, you turned around and pushed Theo back so there was distance between the two of you. Having enough of this you turned around and started to walk away, Theo quickly grabbed your arm and spun you back around so you ended up colliding into his chest.

“Are you really going to walk away without us discussing what I overheard you tell Kira and Lydia? Something along the lines of yes I’m attracted to Theo”

“Go screw yourself Theo” you said to him, not wanting to deal with his cocky behaviour.

“Hmm tempting, but I much rather you do it for me”

“In your dreams Raeken”

Detaching yourself from Theo, you quickly walked back to the table that you were occupying. However Theo would not let this go, and followed you there.

“One night babygirl that’s all it takes for you to change your mind about me. Can’t imagine what the pack has got you to believe. What’s the harm giving in to feelings?”.

While Theo was talking you were packing up your things, wanting to leave the library and this current conversation. You were about to pick up the last book, when Theo slammed his hand onto it preventing you from taking it.

“Don’t act like it’s never crossed your mind Y/N, you and me. I see the way you look at me, I sense the chemo signals from you and I can hear your heartbeat. Don’t pretend like you don’t want this”

“Whether I want too or not Theo, doesn’t matter. You want to know why? Because I’m not risking the friendships I have, just for one night with you”

“And who says it’s going to end after one night?”

You froze and didn’t know what to say. Theo continued talking “Don’t act like you and me would be a bad thing.”

Theo left you alone just standing there, and you watched him walk out of the library doors and out of sight.

TAG. YOU'RE IT. The rules are to state 5 random facts about yourself. Then go,to ten favorite blogs and tell them they are it! *-*

Dang… erm… let’s see…. I ramble, you should already know that, but just warning…

1: I have been playing an MMOSG, (online social game) there.com, since 2004. Not counting Sims, it’s the longest game I’ve ever played.

2: Speaking of Sims, I’ve been playing since TS1 was released 17 effing years ago. (I’m a bit older than a bunch of the lovelies in this simblr community)

3: I would much rather re-watch movies, shows, and re-read books I like than to try something new. My love for pineapples happened directly from watching and re-watching Psych for the last decade of my life.

4: I still play Pokemon Go, and I’ll be going to the first official PokeGo Fest in Chicago next month.

5: I get bored of my natural hair color. I’ve been dyeing my hair since I was 9. I kept to “natural” reds and browns… tried blonde during summer break of high school once, but didn’t bleach it first, so it was a garish bright orange that summer til I dyed it back to a brown by August. Nearly 7 years ago I dyed my hair bright pink, and since then I’ve also gone bright red, blue, aqua, and lavender - I’ve also done the “natural” reds and browns in between as well. 

Currently, the top half of my hair is my natural color, while the bottom half started as lavender, but has faded to look more silvery-gray. I’m thinking a pale pink might be next.

fatblunt69  asked:

Hi, you're the only star war I follow on Tumblr. I used to be a lot more into star wars but ever since the legends change I've just become really jaded about the books (especially the hardcover set of the Thrawn trilogy I got from my grandmother and the three old republic books my fiancée's grandfather got me for Christmas). Do you have any advice on re-embracing the expanded universe?

I would say just start reading them again. I hadn’t read much of the EU before they canned it, but what I did read I absolutely loved. I guess I would say just start reading them again and try to remember that they are still great stories, even if they’re in a different timeline.

If comic books can have 100 different timelines and be fine why can’t Star Wars be fine with two?

ivickieeaudrey  asked:

Hey, bookeworm94! My name is Victoria and I have a major issue. I've been reading books all my life, from diaper days to teenage times, I've been a bookworm myself. Although, ever since I got into college, the desire to read as reduced drastically. I want to go back to reading because of my love for it and because of the wonderful effects that if has on me, like new vocabulary and so on. What do I do?!

Hi Victoria!

I’m so glad you asked! I love getting to talk to other bookworms and connect with them. 

My advice would be to go easy on yourself and just start. I had the same problem when I got into my twenties and realized that I didn’t have the time or the attention span to sit down and devour an entire book in one sitting anymore. Choose a book, either an old favorite or a new read from a genre you know you’ll love, and take it slow. Read a chapter (or a page) at a time, and just keep it next to your bed. Make it a ritual to read for five minutes (or half an hour) every day. It will feel weird at first, like a chore, but it will get you back into the habit and pretty soon it will start feeling more natural. 

Be okay that you aren’t devouring books the way you used to. Just take them a bite at a time.

And believe me, finishing a book will make all the difference. It gives you a feeling of accomplishment, so don’t read ten chapters and toss it aside! Finish! (Unless you hate it. Life is too short to read the wrong book.)

And please, keep in mind that college students have a massive amount of homework and pressure on them. It’s hard to love reading when you have mountains of it to do. So go easy on yourself! You’ll get back into it, I promise! Once a bookworm, always a bookworm, even when you’re in a slump.

Lots of love, and good luck!

Abigail

March Book Photo Challenge I Day 9. I Book Haul

Someone borrowed and lost my Sarah Waters collection and, since she is speaking at my university this week, I have replaced them. Re-reading these books, I love them more than ever. It will be amazing if she signs them!

You know, I absolutely love Alice Miller’s work and since I’m currently reading a book about her life, I get excited about rereading her classics… I was 17 when I read them, so it’s been a long time.

For everyone who doesn’t know her: She was a luminary in child trauma psychology and one of the first people to study the serious impacts of psychological abuse.
If you ever have the chance to pick up one of her books, please do. Next to Erich Fromm I consider her work as a standard for self education.
