OKAY, SO. LET’S HAVE
A TALK ABOUT HELGA HUFFLEPUFF. BECAUSE. I HAVE SO MANY THINGS TO SAY.
Here’s the thing; in my head, Helga Hufflepuff has always been a soldier. Yes, she’s kind
and fair, but she also knows when a good hex or a punch in the face is the only
solution. This does not happen often. She’s friendly and accepting and patient.
But when someone threatens her friends, or her family, or her students, that
someone better be prepared to have her wand aimed at them. Or better yet, a
sword. Use what you know and all that, and while she’s great with her hexes and
curses and even some charms used in a way her old mentor would definitely not
have approved of, there’s just something incredibly satisfying in meeting
someone sword to sword. She and Godric spars every now and then, though it’s
clear he’s more of a dueler than a soldier. But Helga. Helga joined the war
when she was 15, and she never regretted it. It was grueling, and it was painful,
and she watched so many of her companions fall. But she joined for a reason –
to protect (her family, her little nephews and nieces and all the children of
her village) and to, one day, try and change the world enough that war wouldn’t
be necessary. She fought for years, rising in rank as fewer and fewer of her
friends were left, and she refused to give up. This was for the children. This
was for the future.
was 23, she became general. And at 24, the war finally ended. And then she had
to find something else to do.
back to her village, to the little houses and fields and her family. And for a
while she was content, but not for long. She wanted to do something, because that was the reason she joined the war in the
first place. For change. She wanted peace, and quiet, and a place to call home.
But when she had it, she realized she only knew how to fight. And she was not
going to accept that.
She went to
find her old mentor, an aging wizard who kept forgetting his wand in odd places
but who also knew a lot of spells and had more magical books than she had seen
anywhere else in her life (later, when she met Rowena Ravenclaw and saw her
collection, she would stare at it for ten minutes and then just go “nope” and
walk out of the room). She asked him to teach her as much as he could. What he’d
taught her before she left for the army was useful, but if she was gonna change
the world she needed more.
to her, listened to her reasons and her dreams and then he sat her down with a
cup of tea and started talking about magical theory. Most of her went over her
head. She listened anyway. And she kept
coming back. And when she realized how many children he’d helped out through
the years (her among them), she asked him about that. He started spouting even more magical theory. And she kept
listening. And when it was over and he said he couldn’t teach her anymore, she
knew more about accidental magic and magical cores than she thought possible.
And she was satisfied, because this
was what she needed to know. Something that could help. Something that could
change a life, or two, or a hundred, if you only had the people to teach it to.
This was for the children. This was for the future.
she met two wizards and a witch, constantly bickering and joking and everything
in between. And the wanted to start a magic school. Of course she went with them. It was the purpose she had been looking
for. It was a way to do what she’d always dreamt of.
started planning how to do it, and moved into Godric’s family castle up in
Scotland. As they decided to split the students into four groups, Helga started
to get irritated. She had spent half her life fighting a war, she knew that you
couldn’t always get the brave or the smart or the cunning. You had to use the
resources that were available. Anyone
could become a good soldier (or student, she supposed) if they were trained
She was a general, and she’d take anyone who wanted to learn. She was
a soldier, and she’d take anyone who would work hard, because that’s all you
need to change the world. She was a 15 year old girl who joined the army, and
she remembered what it was like when people judged you for your bravery, for
your intelligence, for your strength. She was a 26 year old veteran, and she
would punch anyone who said you couldn’t learn because of something as stupid
as who you are. In the face. They’d
deserve it, for implying that her students weren’t good enough.
@egdramaqueen I said it “needs a bit of polishing” which apparently means I sit here and write another 700 words into it in less than an hour, so here it is. I finished it.
just a friendly reminder that kj apa is 19, almost 20, tho younger than tv shows usually cast to play teenagers he’s still college age. archie andrews is supposed to be a sophomore in high school who are usually 14 to 16 years old.
kj looks like this:
but a real sophomore in high school-archie would look more like this:
so if i catch any of u talking about grundy like she’s not a gross pedophile character i’ll beat ur ass
So you left me because I loved you too much? You won’t speak to me because the most poisonous thing that came off my skin was care? I loved you. I loved each and every part of you. I’m sorry I loved too much. I’m sorry I cared too much. I’m just plainly so sorry for all the fucked up things I did. But you know what I am the most sorry about? You know what makes me feel the worst? How I still love you just the same. It hurts thinking about you and looking back on what we had, it’s hell. But every day is going to get a little bit easier, at least that’s what I’m telling myself. And if that’s what it takes for me to slowly get over this I swear I will. Because I shouldn’t ever have to apologise for loving too much. There are so many people who love me and care about me and just because you don’t doesn’t mean you have the right to take away my will to love and show people how much I love them. But I am done with feeling bad for myself because of it. Because you lost someone who loved you to pieces. And what’d I actually lose? Someone who just didn’t care enough to stay.
Your pornstar AU, it's killed me. And like I really appreciate the fact that you're writing him as a person and the way you approach him being a sex worker rather than resorting to shitty tropes. Also now I'm having feelings about Saeren, and i already have too many feelings about this fucking game, god.
But can you believe that the pirate and the lost girl who climbed that beanstalk together all those years ago, who went on so many adventures and have been through so much, are now going to get married and probably have children and raise them and grow old together?? 😭 This is too much, my heart can’t take it!
So, my birthday is coming up at the end of March, and legend has it that I will be 30. I definitely feel old.
Anyway, I know a lot of people have asked about how they can contribute or cheer me up, and since I don’t sell advertising or take donations, I usually just ask people to spread the word or give to a charity. Over the next few weeks, however, I have a different idea. I made a public Amazon Wish List. Many of the items are under ten bucks. If you feel so inclined, you can purchase one and send me a birthday gift!
If not, that’s okay too. I’m just happy you guys like my Cheer Up Post project. <3
Listen BRO, it's not my fault Victor Nikiforov was invented and he's literally the most perfect creature on Earth and I have too many feelings about him and Yuuri. I just wanna know everything about them, you know? I just want them to be happy ;___; LET THEM BE HAPPYYYY
what do you mean ‘let them be happy’ they’re already happy like can u believe they’re watching Shark Week together right now and arguing over what the coolest shark is like proper husbands
white sharks are clearly not only the coolest sharks but Perfected sharks
victor i love you but you’re so predictable sometimes white sharks are cool but they’re like the poster children of sharks look at all these other amazing sharks like hammerheads and whale sharks they’re so interesting
okay my love i admit you have a point but white sharks are way more aesthetically pleasing-
not everything is about “cool aestherics” you know-
[yuri and victor overlapping loudly] [yurio kicks door open]
You've made a ton of progress since I first found this game! Keep up the good work!
Thank you so much!! That means a lot to me! 💕
It’s hard making progress! When there’s no deadlines, it’s too easy to set stuff aside or lose motivation. Last month I hardly got anything done, but this month! I modeled a new area, I scripted the entire intro, and redid the character customization screen (which was a big mess before), and I fixed so many bugs and general issues with the game. Just having the Patreon is a great motivator, and I feel like I’ve done the most work on the game this month than out of the past year or so I’ve spent working on it!
I don’t know how to be social. My friend from high school added me on Facebook and she wanted to talk on the phone but I made up some excuse not too and didn’t answer.🙄 Ugh. Why do I have to be weird about it? Everything from my past isn’t who I am anymore so it’s weird for me because a lot of friends from my past haven’t changed so idk it’s just weird and awkward for me. I feel bad cause idk how many excuses I can make before its obvious. Bleh. 😩
Please, don't kill yourself. I don't know what happened, but I know that you're a sweet person and don't deserve to feel like this. Whatever happened, you can make it through and remember to love yourself. We can help you with that, so if you feel like dying: I love you. And your followers love you too. Stay happy&healthy, for yourself, because you deserve that and more -V anon
I lost so many followers because of this…I am not worried but I did see a side of Chip even out of the roleplay that disgusts me and she can hate on me for that I tried to apologize and be nice to her but if she wants to be an asshole to me then she can bring it on I have multiple people supporting me one doesn’t want to get involved too much so I will not name them. A lot of people that were present even felt that it went too far I don’t want anyone to get involved this is between me and everyone who was there and I think we should’ve handled it like mature people and talked it out but now I have to go to bed tonight knowing that someone that I actually CAUGHT FEELINGS FOR, stabbed me in the back.
Kinda responding to the person who asked where does the yooran ship come from ??? At least for me it started w one of yoosungs bad ends because Saeran ordering Yoosung around with a collar = hot. I shamelessly made so many nsfw fanart from this (kinda problematic?) relationship oh god But then it rly evolved to post secret ending 02 fluff because one does not survive with only angst in their lives
i feel like the bad ending has an…interesting kind if dynamic between them.
my next fic (hopefully if i ever get round to it) is gonna be partly based on the bad end… but only partly. i don’t really know how to explain it without giving too much away, but i’m gonna have to be super careful with how i write it
I have a ten gallon tank for my garter snake. He's full grown (about a foot and a half long give or take an inch). His tank has vines for him to climb on, a water dish, and two hides for him. I feel like there isn't enough for him to do and I try to take him out for handling when time permits but due to school this is not as often as I want to. Do you have any ideas on how I can make his tank more interesting for him? Thank you in advance!
You can never have too many plants, vines and branches for climbing. You could make a platform and put another hide on top of it to give him a different level and place to hang out at if he chooses. You could try adding different textures to the tank; a rough rock or two, maybe do half the tank in one kind of substrate and the other half in a different substrate, etc. Another fun thing to do on occasion is scent enrichment, which can be a number of things, for example, I have cats, so after I brush out one of my cats, I’ll put some of the loose fur in the corner of one my snake’s enclosures as something different to investigate. You can use rat/guinea pig/rabbit bedding, just about whatever you think your snoot might find interesting (just make sure they don’t actually try to eat it if it’s bedding or something not edible…). If your snake doesn’t already burrow in his substrate, you could try burring pvc pipe or cardboard tubes or something in the substrate to create little tunnels for him to explore.
And if all else fails, a bigger enclosure would let you add more things :) I hope you come up with some fun enrichment for him!
lol sorry but its hard for me to tell if im sounding like an ass-hat or something through text, im more a face to face kind of person (or voice). Im dint meant to shame someone or tell anyone to not like or do NSFW. What I meant to say that there is already too many NSFW artist out there, and I like that you dont post NSFW art. By not showing NSFW art it might help courage others to not do it as well.
I understand if you don’t have any ill feelings towards nsfw artists! I don’t think you come across rude at all, either! What I am understanding is that you don’t like nsfw art, and it is true that lots of nsfw furry art finds its way beyond its place in adult locations, such as mature filters, mature websites, adult blogs, etc. and you inevitably run into it no matter what. Hell, most furry artists have sfw blogs and nsfw blogs–except i think a lot of artists do a good job of keeping their nsfw art in places where casual eyes cannot find it unless they look for it. However, most of the porn you just casually run into online is typically stolen and reposted, so I don’t blame the artists. Also 90% of artists I see absolutely hate when minors follow their nsfw blogs, and some actually put in the effort to block said minors. Yay furries!
I just really don’t think anyone should refrain from drawing nsfw if they don’t want to. I also do not want to encourage people not to, just because I don’t typically draw it. I just really don’t think it’s such a bad thing to have an abundance of artists who draw lewds, as long as its kept in the right place (which isn’t hard to do lmao). Most artists I follow only give their nsfw blog to those who ask, or people who just randomly find them. The crap you find on the first page of google image searches are stolen by real asshats and posted on popular sites for everyone to fap to.
Hey, anybody know if some super hero movies are coming out soon? I haven’t heard about super hero movies in a while, I feel like they just don’t make too many of those. I feel like I could really go for some super hero movies, it’s just.. really fresh, creative, exciting stuff. Maybe an origin story, or maybe a story where a bad guy makes a big glowy portal thing in the sky and the good guys have to stop it. Get back to me about this please, I’m hankering for more super hero movies! You don’t see them happening every day!
