Over the past couple of months I’ve been slowly making note of the dialogue, plots, characters, and scenes in Season Four, HLV, and TAB that have been recycled from previous episodes.

They can be found in a collection of charts that’s constantly being updated and can be viewed/downloaded here.

most people i've seen are saying lance should be leader because he's less reckless than keith (examples such as: he formed the plan to distract the sentries instead of rushing head on and he's a sniper- meaning he has to have patience). personally i think he /could/ be a good leader, but it would take maybe a bit more time to make him one than keith, despite his recklessness.

ohhh, okay i see–yeah, i was really confused bc i have seen posts where ppl have said they want lance to be the leader but i found no reasons so haha;;;

i could see him but i feel like he’ll need more development if he’s going to be leader

shiro chose keith not bc he’s playing “favorites”, it’s bc shiro trusts keith the most and he’s willing to give up his position as leader to his right hand man

Your art is so good!!!! You should post it more often (if you're comfortable with that of course).

!!!! Thank you so much ^/////^ I don’t think they really are, but I guess it depends on the person haha;; orz I feel bad that they’re just… never complete so I don’t usually post them.. that and maybe I am not yet confident in my drawing skills lol. But!! Thank you so much for the kind words, it really motivates me more to improve so one day I can be at ease when posting them ;u; I hope you have a lovely day, because you sure as heck made mine!

Yesterday scrolling through your blog was fun, there were interesting questions and the event was also interesting, but today what I saw was a perfectly good blog poisoned by the cancerous memes of the Internet. At least finding the sensible asks and the asks that comfort the characters in all the mess made me not completely lose faith in humanity. Anyway, sorry for the long post, know that your blog is beautiful and stay strong, mod lili!

Yes I know that some people found it funny but quite a few of you told me that it made them uncomfortable so I realized that maybe I should have put an end to it sooner. I will know that for the next time at least.

So I want to apologize to all of you if any of the post on this blog made you feel uncomfortable.

I’m not saying that I will stop answering asks who make fun of the characters for one reason or another, just that I will be more careful about it so it doesn’t end like yesterday ^^

Thank you again, though, I’m glad what happened yesterday didn’t make you leave :)

Hello, my lovelies!

 It’s been a minute since I’ve posted a selfie and although I’m sick as fuck, I felt kinda nice today.

 My hair color almost looks like Tenti’s, maybe I should go neon green for Anti next. C: 

 Well, anywho, I am currently working on some ring demons and I shall be posting them either later tonight or sometime tomorrow. Depends on if I keep my focus on them, I have a lot on my mind at this point in time.. 

 Plans for a new laptop are in the making and finding a good one without my techy friends arguing with each other is stressful as fuck along with uh.. a even more stressful living environment.. 

 But things will turn around when I get the new computer and when I do get it, be prepared. I shall be streaming like crazy like how I use to! It’s been since the start of November since I last streamed… I feel bad and upset that I haven’t streamed in ages. 

 Anyways, I’ve rambled what I wanted to say. 

 I hope you all have a wonderful day so far and your night is twice as amazing~ 

Eat, drink, and take yo meds.

 Much love!

3 Study Methods You Should Use More Often

This was originally for an article writing assignment, but I thought “why not write something I can also post on my blog?” so here are three study methods that I haven’t seen a lot of in the studyblr community but are definitely worth mentioning.

The Leitner System

          Flash cards have remained one of the most popular ways to study. Some people use them to memorize vocabulary, remember answers to specific questions, or even associate dates with events. Although the use of flash cards is convenient, their effectiveness has been reduced due to most people’s habits of prioritizing each card equally and therefore spending too much time memorizing the information on them.

          The Leitner System, created by a German popularizer of science named Sebastian Leitner, is a more efficient method of studying that implements the concept of spaced repetition. All the cards start off in one pile. You would first scan through these cards, then test yourself. Each card you answer correctly goes to a second pile, while those you answer incorrectly should be revised then placed at the bottom of the pile. When you review the cards in the second pile and get them correct, they will be promoted to a third pile. An incorrect card will always get demoted to the first pile, even if they had previously been promoted to the last pile.

          The reason why this method is so effective is that you end up reviewing the first pile of cards more frequently—the cards you don’t know very well. Some people choose to review their Stack 1 cards every day, Stack 2 cards every other day, Stack 3 cards once every three days, and so on.

          Once all your cards have been promoted to the highest box, study them thoroughly and then start over. The continuous revision trains your speed so that you may reach fluency, which allows you to recall the information faster.

Timed Memorization

          The name tells it all: you memorize a certain text within a time limit, normally around five to ten minutes depending on your fluency and memorization abilities. When the timer starts, you begin memorizing. When time is up, you flip to the next page, even if you haven’t finished the previous page yet. Continue until you’ve gone through all your material.

          Timed memorization helps you to discipline yourself because your brain thinks that there’s no time for messing around; you have to do this here and now. Make sure to repeat the things you missed and revise everything frequently. This method is actually one of the most effective for cramming as it gives a better coverage than if you spend a whole half hour memorizing one subtopic.

The Memory Palace or Mind Palace

           Sound familiar? In BBC’s Sherlock, the ‘highly functioning sociopath’ uses this method to remember vital information and facts. A mind palace is a systematic arrangement of information, each detail corresponding to a specific object in a familiar place. To ensure that you really remember everything, the objects have to appear shocking and conspicuous.

           Here’s an example: if I wanted to memorize “crimson, 11, delight, petrichor (the smell after rain)”, aside from imagining Amy Pond or the Doctor saying it, I would first choose a place, let’s say my school. I’d imagine myself walking up to the front gate and seeing that the entire building has been painted the color of blood—crimson. The building would then rise as though it were lifted from the earth and crumble into rubble, controlled by Eleven, the character from Stranger Things. Now, since I can’t really picture delight specifically, I’d probably end up visualizing a colossal sign that simply reads “delight” posted in front of my school. As for petrichor, I’d imagine curves rising out of the puddles on the asphalt after a rainy night, a visual representation of the smell of the rain. Of course, these visualizations have been created to suit my memory. (I wouldn’t know if you watched Stranger Things.)

           I used this method when memorizing case studies for geography, although I chose to visualize fictional places from television series and cartoons. Some people do opt to create artificial places, but these often become blurry and are easily forgotten.

           As with any study method, repetition is vital to storing the information in your long-term memory. Visit your “palace” as often as you can. Soon enough, you’ll remember the data as well as you remember the place associated with the data.

So there you have it, three lesser known methods of studying that have proven to be immensely efficient. Now, there is no “correct” way to study, but there are methods that can ease your learning process.

Astrology fun facts

I will for some but HOPEFULLY I don’t have to put a ‘normally’, ‘usually’, etc. in front of everything. Also if you like this & idk if I should do more tell me because it’s fun. 💫


-Uranus in the 1st usually makes one tall.

- Sagittarius rising people always have something cute & dorky to them, even those who normally are/seem the complete opposite.

- Cancer is the coldest sign.

- Geminis (moons too) are usually bookworms.

- Scorpio venusians tend to fall for those they can’t reach (e.g. already married, celebrities, already dead, …)

- females with (esp hard) sun/saturn aspect are much more likely to be attracted to those a lot older (NOT an indicator for daddy kink!).

- Pisceans usually have something ethereal to them.

- Aquarius & Sagittarius won’t listen when you tell them not to do something.

- Water venusians & mercurians are likely more poetic.

- Venus in the 9th makes you popular.

- A lot of Virgo & 6th house placements make it more likely for you to have good eating habits & to work out (aka do what’s good for your health).

- Capricorn have to prove themselves to the world/public, whether consciously or subconsciously.

- Libras are social butterflies.

- Sun in the 2nd makes for a good singer.

- Pisces & Sagittarius folks often have something puppy-like to them.

- Leo friends are great both for introverts & extroverts as long as you don’t hold them from having fun.

- The last signs (Pisces, Aquarius, Sagittarius, Capricorn too but not as much) are usually very tolerant & non-judgmental.

- Air signs gossip the most (esp Gemini + Libra).

- Sister-sign sun/moon combos (eg Pisces sun-Virgo moon) can be hard but great if learned to deal with.

- Your draconic chart (+ with it its placements) most likely won’t be apparent & fitting to others.

- The first signs (Aries, Taurus, Gemini, Cancer) are more naïve than the rest.

- A mercury retrograde in your chart makes you witty.

- Gemini, Virgo & Scorpio (esp moon) are best at hiding emotions.

What is Meditation About Anyway?

As meditation enters the mainstream, it can often be distorted into various forms. This leads to certain confusions regarding what meditation is and isn’t. The following post is not a judgment on other practices one might engage with their attention but it is meant as a means of clarification. 

What Meditation Is Not

  • Meditation is not about zoning out. 
    • I can’t tell you how many people have said to me, “Yeah I should meditate more, I could really use some time to just zone out, you know?”
  • Meditation is not a trance state. 
    • Many assume meditation is about entering a specific state. 
      • That may be a state of peace, a state of love, a state of bliss, or a state of sleep. 
  • Meditation is not a guided journey. 
    • Guided meditations can be useful in their own way but I wish people would find a better word than “meditation.”
      • Guided contemplation may be more fitting. 

What Meditation Is

  • Meditation is about focusing your attention. 
    • That sounds like work, doesn’t it? Whenever we are told to focus, it seems like a shitty time. 
      • But does someone need to tell you to focus when you are watching your favorite TV show?
      • Does someone need to tell you to focus during sex? (I hope not.)
      • Does someone need to tell you to focus when you’re savoring a delicious meal?
    • The kind of focus meditation practices is the same focus we engage when we are wholly present and engaged in what we are doing. 
      • At first this may feel like work because you are focusing without the enjoyable objects to focus on. 
      • Soon you discover that there is bliss and happiness in the act of focusing itself. 
  • Meditation is about the absence of tension. 
    • You could call this relaxation but remember that focus is at play here too. 
      • Often people see relaxation as being the absence of the need for focus. 
    • During meditation you are both relaxed and focused. 
      • I think of this as focus without tension. 
      • Typically when we focus, it is intense and there is a degree of “pressure” behind the energy of focusing. 
      • In meditation, we are calm but we are also focused. 
  • Meditation is the practice of patience. 
    • Patience and peace are one. 
      • Patience in its purest form isn’t about waiting for the future but rather not measuring the present against the future. 
      • Then you can actually be patient. 
      • Time carries you onward regardless, being patient means being present with the flow of time. 
  • Meditation is about becoming acquainted with formlessness. 
    • There are many meditation techniques. Focusing on a certain spot on the body, focusing on breathing, focusing on images, focusing on mantras. 
    • Eventually your focusing becomes focused on focus. Awareness of awareness rests in awareness. 
    • As you practice more, you use less technique. That comes with experience. 
    • The more formless your meditation, the more continuous it becomes. 
      • Eventually it doesn’t depend on eyes open or eyes closed, on body sitting or body standing, on mind thinking or not-thinking, and so on. 

That’s just, like, your opinion, man. 

It is. I’m not saying all of this because it is permanently true and anything else doesn’t count. I am stating this to help clarify what is a meditation practice and what is practice for meditation. Hopefully it was helpful. 

Namaste :)

You know I ain’t wrote a post about it, but Moana was fabulous and such an amazing movie. EVERONE should see it at least once, support this film so we can have more. I was impressed by so many things but these are a few in point form:

  1. Moana has a boys narrative.
    She is the chosen one.
    She has a grand adventure.
    She is the ONLY one to do this impossible task.
    She has a real coming of age story.
    She is a chief of her village.
  2. She doesn’t have a forced romance narrative / she has no romantic interest. This is HUGE her story was never overshadowed, taken over, or revolves around a BOY!
  3. BUT her story is still about / is driven by love! Love for her people, her grandmother, her family, love of the ocean, of sailing. The whole damn story is about love, caring, support. It’s AMAZING.
  4. She isn’t overshadowed by Maui, he is there and he supports her adventure and her story, but he doesn’t impose on her narrative. He even grows, develops and becomes this better person because of her (not the other way around).
  5. NOT A SINGLE WOMAN IN HER LIFE IS EVIL, HATEFUL, MEAN. EVERY WOMAN IN HER LIFE SUPPORTS HER AND HER DECISIONS. From the random tribes women who praise her skills, to her grandmother who lovingly encourages her desire to go to the ocean, to her Mother who instead of stopping or discouraging her quest HELPS HER GET READY TO GO. It’s so amazing there are no evil step mothers, no evil sisters, no village bitches who hate the main character because she’s pretty. ALL THE WOMEN SUPPORT AND LOVE. FUCKING YES PLEASE.
  6. She is given the chance to understand her Father. She is given time in her narrative to know her fathers fear intimately, and from it she doesn’t hate her father for his desire to keep her safe and away from the ocean. She doesn’t leave her island hating her parents, or have any negative feelings. She UNDERSTANDS AND KNOWS her father fear, she doesn’t resent him for it. IT IS SO POWERFUL.
  7. THE MOVIE IS FUNNY. OKAY. Yeah some of it is slap stick for the kids, but I laughed so hard at the stupid jokes. THE CHICKEN I need not say more. Just enjoy and laugh and be a kid okay.
  8. The music is lovely, the songs are great, I really enjoy them.
  9. The antagonist doesn’t have to die a horrid death, nor is the antagonist brutally punished in some way. The ending is so PURE and full of love and caring. I mean the song she sings, OH SLAY ME I HAVE EMOTIONAL FEELS ABOUT THIS.

So those are some of the things I really loved. I just enjoyed this movie it felt really good watching it and I plan to see it again (if not more). A good adventure, coming of age story full of love!

Me: I have very high standards!
Everyone: -submits their fanart/fanfics-
Me: YOU’RE MEETING ALL MY STANDARDS!!!!11!!


I’m sorry. Not really. I just love all your fanarts.

ok everybody has probably already caught this by now, but I wanted to write it down -

You have to judge the mayor of Crestwood for pretty much the same thing that Solas is responsible for (albeit on a much smaller scale). I couldn’t have written a closer parallel if I tried - the mayor, in a position of authority, made the decision to unilaterally kill many innocent people in order to stop something he believed to be more terrible from happening (eta: and both were, perhaps, attempts to specifically stem the spread of the Blight - thank you for catching that, @rederiswrites!). Then living with guilt for years, all those deaths on his hands, wondering if he made the right call, until finally the truth was revealed.

Where it gets interesting is when Solas reacts to the Mayor’s punishment. And his reactions are almost the complete opposite of all the other companions.

Solas seems to be the only person who actively empathizes with the mayor. He thinks the mayor deserved exile, is neutral about imprisonment, and he is the only one to disapprove of a beheading. 

That Solas would approve of a betrayer being exiled away from his people is interesting to me, especially knowing his worst fear (“dying alone”) and hearing the conversation with Varric about the Man on the Island. I wonder if these are the same punishments he would give himself. 

Anyway, I get a kick from all the people in the comments saying that they just felt sorry for the mayor having to make a choice like that…  does that go for Trespasser as well?
