i hope this answers your questions by the way

Hi Thor! I had to think about this and ask mom to help observe. We think that I might be right footed because I hold my noms with that foot most and I wipe my mouth with that foot too. Torty holds down his food with both feet since he is small and Mango likes to stretch her neck out and do most of the work that way. Hope this answers your question :)

yep, here you go!! hope you enjoy!

also, a very important question: which paladin do you think is most likely to believe in aliens? or believe in conspiracy theories? i need answers 👀👀


“What’s that?” you ask, raising an eyebrow suspiciously. Your boyfriend, Matt Holt, has just gotten home from the studio, and while you’re ultimately glad to see him home, there’s something else that seems to bother you greatly. He’s hiding something, and it’s obvious in the way he acts, in the way he moves. It’s obvious in the way his arms are hiding behind his back, like he’s holding something illegal, like he’s holding something he isn’t supposed to be.

Your boyfriend, Matt shrugs, and tries to walk past you, past the front door. You shake your head and stand in front of him, effectively blocking his way in. A frown slowly makes its way toward the corners of his lips and he narrows his eyes into a glare as he lifts his head to look up at you. “Let me in,” he says, and you could almost hear the exhaustion in his voice, loud and evident, almost as if it’s begging to be noticed, begging to be heard. “I’m tired.”

“No, Matt,” you reply, shaking your head at him once more. You allow a frown to make its way toward your lips, and for a moment, you are aware that you’re wearing the exact expression on his face, like you’re mirroring it, like you’re copying him. “You have to answer my question first. What are you even hiding?”

“I’m not hiding anything,” he replies, and he sounds a little too defensive for your own liking. “What makes you even think I’m hiding something?”

“Are you sure?” you ask, narrowing your eyes suspiciously as the words slip out of your mouth. “Because I’m pretty certain that that’s what people who are hiding something would definitely say.”

He shakes his head at your words, allowing a sigh of exasperation to escape his lips. “I’m really not hiding anything,” he says. He shoots you another glare before opening his mouth to add, “Now, can you please let me in?”

There’s a moment of silence settling between the two of you and it’s you who finally break it. “Okay,” you finally say, nodding your head as you do so. You step to the side to let him in, allowing him to walk past you. You shut the door as soon as he’s gone, slowly walking toward where you think he’d be—the living room.

“Seriously, though,” you begin as you finally reach your destination. “What are you…?” you trail off from your words, allowing the rest of them to hang in the atmosphere of the room. You immediately stop in your tracks, seemingly frozen in shock.

Before you sits a small box, and there, seemingly peeking from within is a cream coloured cat. It’s a small one, seemingly a few weeks old. He’s staring at you with large, beady eyes, and it’s too cute, too adorable that for a moment, you think you’re about to melt.

“Is that a cat?” you ask, your voice as soft as a whisper. You’re still seemingly in a daze, asking the question to almost no one in particular. You don’t even notice that your boyfriend isn’t even around until you hear the sound of his footsteps coming toward the room you’re in. You don’t even notice that he’s finally arrived until he’s opened his mouth to say something. “Is that a cat in our apartment?”

“I see you’ve met him already,” he muses out loud, and immediately you’re snapped out of your daze, shaking your head and dismissing your thoughts away from your mind. You quickly turn your head to look at him, and see that there’s a small smile on his face, almost as if he’s amused at the sight before him, at the sight of you and the cat.

“You brought a cat with you?” you ask, seemingly more in confirmation than anything else.  You utter the words slowly, furrowing your eyebrows as you do so. The confusion is still evident in the way you say the words, still evident in the way you utter them. “Is that what you’re trying to hide from me earlier?”

He raises a finger and rubs his cheek, seemingly embarrassed. “Well…” he begins slowly, worrying his bottom lip between his teeth almost as if in sheepishness. “Yes…” he trails off, allowing his words to hang in the air between the two of you before he continues, in the same voice that he’d used to utter his previous words. “Kind of? Sort of…?”

It sounds more of a question than an actual answer, though at this point, you’re still in a daze that you would have literally take anything and everything that spills out of his mouth an answer. You slowly walk toward the kitten—who still seems to be staring at you with widened eyes and a curious look on its tiny face—and crouch down so you’re almost level at it.

“Hi,” you murmur softly, slowly reaching out a hand to stroke the cat’s fur. You do it slowly, gently, as though it’s something vulnerable, fragile and you’re afraid you’re going to hurt it. The cat purrs in response, closing its eyes and leaning against your touch, seemingly craving for more. A smile slowly makes its way toward your lips, and you continue your ministrations, stroking the cat’s fur for a bit more before carrying it and holding it in your arms, holding it closer to your chest as though it were your own child.

You stand up from the ground, slowly turning around to face your boyfriend. You could see that there’s something lovely in his expression—soft gaze, small smile, and peaceful expression—that almost seems too sweet for you to handle. You could almost feel your heart fluttering against your chest, could almost feel it beating too quickly, too rapidly for your own liking.

Still, you ignore it in favor of walking toward him, still holding the cat to your chest as though you’re trying to protect it from someone, from something. “Where did you even find it?” you ask, briefly eyeing the cat in your arms before lifting your head to look up at him once more.

He shrugs as if in reply. “Earlier,” he replies, his tone just a bit too nonchalant. “While I was walking home. I could hear a faint meowing sound, and I got curious and checked it out. I found this little guy on the box, and it seemed to be blindly searching for something, meowing here and there, meowing every once in a while.”

There’s a brief pause coming from him, and it takes him a moment to open his mouth to continue his previous words. “It seemed lonely and I couldn’t just let it die from hunger so I decided to take it home.”

“But you do know, don’t you?” you ask again, absentmindedly beginning to stroke the cat’s fur once more. It meows in response, and you smile softly at it before turning your attention back to your boyfriend. “You know we couldn’t keep pets around, no matter how much we want to.”

“Yeah,” he says, nodding his head at your words. “I know.” There’s another moment’s pause before he continues, and when the words finally spill out of his mouth, you notice that they’re much softer, much gentler than before. “But I couldn’t just leave it there either.”

“I know,” you say, nodding your head at him. “I know…” You pause from your words, worrying your bottom lip between your teeth as you do so. It takes you a moment to continue, and as soon as you do, the words come out soft and gentle, similar to the way he’s uttered his words earlier. “But still, it’s…”

You trail off, allowing the rest of your words to hang in the air between the two of you. Even without finishing the rest of your words, you already know that he understands. It’s obvious enough on the expression on his face; there’s a frown on his lips and a helplessness in his gaze that almost makes your heart ache, that almost makes your heart break.

You’re about to reach a hand out and comfort him, but before you could even do so, he’s already looking up at you with wide eyes, looking like he’s just discovered something new, looking like he’s just discovered something worth bragging about. “But we could hide it, right?” he says, seemingly out of a sudden. There’s a glint of hope in his eyes as he utters them. “I mean, we could hide the cat whenever the landlady comes to visit, so that means we still get to keep it.”

“Matt, I don’t think we should…“ You begin, but you immediately stop from your words as soon as you see your boyfriend’s expression. You’re almost caught off guard at the look on his face: all charms and cuteness combined.

“Please?” he says, jutting his bottom lip out into a pout. He blinks up at you as he repeats his words, seemingly even more cutely this time. “Please, please, please?”

You worry your bottom lip between your teeth, seemingly unsure of how to respond. He’s disarming you with his cuteness, and you’re very well aware of it. He’s trying to manipulate you into doing whatever it is that he wants, and you couldn’t just let that happen. And besides, as much as you want the cat to stay, there’s a rule that the both of you should obey. You couldn’t just forget all about it—

The sound of meowing seems to snap you out of your thoughts. You quickly turn your head to look at the cat in your arms, who’s beginning to crawl all over your arm. It stops walking as soon as it reaches your shoulder, settling itself comfortably against your shoulder. It nuzzles its head against your neck, purring as it does so.

For a moment, you’re stunned into silence, seemingly having no idea whatever it was that had just happened. It’s Matt who breaks the silence this time.

“Oh, look!” he exclaims, uttering the words just a bit too happily, just a bit too cheerfully for anyone’s own good. There’s a grin on his face as he utters his next words. “The kitty likes you! The kitty likes you so much!”

“Matt, you know we can’t—!” you begin, but the sound of the cat meowing stops you from finishing your words. You blink once, twice, thrice, seemingly trying to process whatever it was that had just occurred. As soon as you do, you’re looking at your boyfriend with furrowed brows, as though you’re silently asking him to explain, to elaborate a bit more on the happenings on your surroundings.

Matt claps his hands, almost in amazement. The grin is still intact on his face, and it only seems to widen just a bit as he opens his mouth to say something. “It’s because the kitty likes you so much,” he says, and you’re pretty sure he’s just using this to his advantage, trying to get you to approve of his idea. “The kitty likes you a lot it doesn’t want to leave you.”

“Really?” you ask, raising an eyebrow suspiciously at him. “Because I’m pretty sure that isn’t what I read in books at all.” Matt opens his mouth to answer, to protest at your words, but before he could do so, you hear the sound of a tiny meow once more.

“See?” he says after a moment, smiling widely up at you once more. Judging from the expression on his face, you’d think that he’s pretty much having fun at teasing you, at watching you suffer. “I told you already that it likes you!”

“But that doesn’t mean we could still keep it…!” you say, and the frustration is obvious in the way you utter the words. “You know I would agree to your idea but you know that we couldn’t just disobey the rules! We don’t even know what’s going to happen to us if we do. We don’t even what kind of consequences we’re going to have to suffer if we choose to do so.”

By the end of your little speech, you’re already panting, seemingly out of breath at this point. There’s a few moments of silence settling between the two—or is it three?—of you before you hear the cat’s soft purring from your shoulder. It still hasn’t crawled away from you, still seemingly unbothered by the loudness of your voice. Instead, it nuzzles its head further against your neck, still finding comfort in you despite the harshness of your previous words, despite the loudness of the tone that you’d used to utter them.

“I still think we should keep it,” Matt says after a moment, though his voice is much softer than before. “It seems to really like you a lot, having gotten attached to you already, despite having known you for a short time.”

A defeated sigh escapes your lips, and it’s only a matter of time before you’re nodding your head in agreement. “I guess,” you say softly, reaching out to stroke the cat’s head. It purrs at your touch and you allow a smile to make its way toward the corners of your lips.

You think you could see the beginnings of a smile making its way toward his lips, almost mirroring your own. “Can I give it a name?” he asks after a moment,

You try to suppress the giggle that almost slips out of your mouth. “It depends,” you say, and your voice carries a lilt, seemingly teasing. “If you try to give the cat an ugly name, then no, you cannot.”

He pouts at you, blinking cutely at you once more, trying to manipulate you into doing whatever it that he wants once more. “But…”

“No,” you say, shaking your head at him. Your resolve is hardened this time; you’re not going to fall for his pretty charms twice in one row. “You’re not the cat’s mother. I am.”

You say the words with such finality, with such seriousness that it almost seems like a revelation rather than a joke. There’s a moment of silence settling between the two of you, and when you turn your head to look at Matt, he seems rather… odd. He’s frozen to the ground, frozen in his spot, and seemingly in shock to even move, to even say something. Your boyfriend seems a little taken aback at your words, and it’s obvious in the way he acts next in the few moments.

Matt’s eyes widen at your words, seemingly in disbelief. It takes him a moment to process your words, and as soon as he does, laughter begins to spill out of his lips.

His laugh seems continuous, contagious even, that you find yourself laughing as well. In the end, though, the both of you couldn’t stop laughing; the both of you couldn’t control your laughter that you caused to the poor kitty (who had been sleeping peacefully against your shoulder) to wake up, meowing loudly at the obnoxious sound of both your giggles and chuckles. The cat jumps away from your shoulder, landing smoothly on the floor below its little feet.

The cat proceeds to walk toward a chair, hiding its little form under it, seemingly away from the both of you, seemingly where the both of you couldn’t possibly reach it, where the both of you couldn’t disturb him from his peacefulness.

In the end, the both of you have to make it up to the kitty by trying to offer it thousands of toys (which it refused every single time) and a bowl of milk (which the cat finally accepted after Matt has finally consoled it with his cute, irresistible charms).

How to be good at interviews:

I’m having next Wednesday my first professional interview (eeeeek) so I decided to share the research I’m doing. I googled all of this and chose the information I found most important, and organized it. I truly hope it’s helpful for someone out there :)

PLAN AND PRACTICE:

  • always do your homework: learn about the organization, its ideas and story 
  • don’t necessarily memorize responses, but try to have a planned general strategy for answering common interview questions
  • practice in front of the mirror
  • be ready to briefly describe related experience
  • compare your qualifications to what the organization wants from you

COMMON INTERVIEW QUESTIONS:

  1. What’s your biggest weakness? Think of a genuine issue you have as well as ways you have managed to work with/around it.
  2. What’s your biggest strengths?” Stand out from the crowd and don’t be afraid to speak about your strengths in an authentic and compelling way. See if your strengths align with the company’s needs.
  3. Why do you want this job?”/ “Why should we hire you?” Stay focused on why your background makes you an ideal candidate and tell them how you are going to contribute to that department and that company. 
  4. Tell me about yourself.” Don’t tell them your life story, instead discuss what your interests are relating to the job and why your background makes you a great candidate.
  5. Why did you leave your last job/position/school?” Do not go into details about your dissatisfaction, tell them that while you valued the experience and education you received, you felt that the time had come to seek outo a new opportunity, expand your skills and knowledge, and to find a company with wich you could grow. Try to put a positive spin on things. Be honest if you were fired but don’t trash your previous boss.
  6. Where do you see yourself in five years?”  Be honest about what your greater aspirations are.

And much much much more (from your behaviour to work experiences, education, interests and motivation or problems and challeges you’ve faced previously), I would encourage you to try to write down some topics for each questions that work for you. Being prepared is everything.

THE DAY OF THE INTERVIEW:

  • sleep and eat well so you look rested and healthy on the big day
  • give yourself time to calm down/meditate/relax
  • don’t noodle around on your phone or electronic device while waiting - it may communicate boredom and frivolousness, maybe stick your notebook/notes

What to wear: normally it’s best to dress neutral, professionally/formal, not overly fashionable or trendy, and brightly colored clothing is bad. Make sure your clothes are neat and wrinkle free, and make sure your image is very clean and neat.

What to bring: if revelant, extra copies of your resume on quality paper, a notepad or professional binder and pen, information you might need to complete an application.

IMPORTANT TIPS:

  • make eye contact
  • show courtesy to everyone during the interview, this means everyone from the reception staff to the interviewer herself
  • smile
  • have good posture
  • avoid fidgeting too much or playing with your hair/touching face
  • have a good handshake
  • don’t cross your arms over your chest
  • walk, act, talk with confidence
  • be comfortable and relaxed
  • choose the words you say
  • don’t place stuff on their desk
  • manage your reactions - facial and body expressions give clues on how you feel: project a positive image
  • show interest and enthusiasm
  • show warmth and personality - being personable is about getting the interviewer’s emotional side to like you and believe in you
  • don’t lie to make it seem like you know something you don’t. You probably won’t fool your interviewer, and admitting to not know something is much more impressive than lying
  • be honest
  • keep things simple and short, talk in 30-90 second chunks. Any less and you’re likely to seem unqualified; any more and your interviewer is likely to lose interest in what you’re saying

THINK OF QUESTIONS TO ASK: participating actively during the interview gives a good impression of your level of interest in the job. Most of times it is more adequeate to ask in the end of the interview.  But I feel like you really need to make sure your questions are adequate. Examples:

  • “What types of training opportunities do you offer?”
  • “What are the chances for professional growth in this job opportunity?”
  • “Is there anything else I can provide you with that would be helpful?”
  • ALWAYS ask the “ When can I expect to hear back from you about the position?” question if  the interviewer does not tell you

Good questions are open-ended, and thus cannot be answered with a “yes” or “no.” Better questions are behavioral: they ask how things are done or have happened in the past, because current and past behavior is the best predictor of future behavior.

AFTER THE INTERVIEW:

  • shake hands with the interviewer - try to invest some feeling into the handshake and pleasantries, even if you think you bombed the interview
  • hold your head high and keep your cool
  • your emotions are probably teetering at the highest of highs or the lowest of lows, but try to stay measured
  • project a cool confidence, not cockiness, and walk out of the interview with your head held high

SOMETHING TO ALWAYS KEEP IN MIND:

  • when you know in your heart and your gut that you bring to the table something just as valuable as a paycheck and maybe much more – your tremendous experience, intellect and instinct – you’ll carry yourself differently. You won’t trip over your words in an effort to please His Majesty or Her Highness, because you’ll see yourself and the interviewer as equals on a level playing field. 
  • you are valuable and unique. You have something very special in you and you deserve to be given a chance. good luck!

i was asked a simple question from a man of higher authority. i basked at the many ways one could answer this but instead my tongued swirled in inaudible gestures as my fingers rummaged quickly to release the words which itched at my fingertips. each word came like the wind, overflowing with immense power as each thought struck similar to heavy currents washing some body to shore. i hope these words find you well dear friend. keep your head high and use those hands.

how many windows are there in new york (?)

- there are as many as one would would believe them to be. i like to think there are an infinite amount, because the possibilities to life and its presented opportunities are never ending but that thought alone comes with perception, experience and a determined willingness. many times we look for what is easily accessible - there’s not much challenge in opening door(s). what happens when the door itself locks or what may seem to feel of having no way out? one must put their critical thinking cap on and think outside of the box - to press forward and dive into one’s self imagination - to learn the ability to be patient yet creative in one’s growth. to be able to always provide a solution, even when it seems to be impossible. if you have trouble with the door (situation), search for the window and when you can’t find it - create it yourself.

You had called in a lot of favors to find out the location of the Avengers Compound in upstate New York.  You had been surprised to find out how close it really was to you.  That was just another reason to finally make your move.

You followed the written directions you had been given by a friend since the Compound didn’t show up on any maps.  You were sure Tony Stark had made sure that all records of its location were erased from any database.  You made the last turn, just as an armed guard stepped forward to block your way.

What Did You Do Over The Summer?

For @bananannabeth <3

Annabeth shifted uncomfortably in her seat, she could feel the eyes of the students on her. Her history teacher’s question rang in her ears; “What did you do over the summer, Annabeth?” It was such a simple question, a formality of sorts, five others in her class had been asked the same and their answers all of the same tune. 

“Nothing. I pretty much just stayed in bed the whole time.” 

“My dad and I went camping for a week. It was the worst experience of my life. I do not recommend it.”

“I stayed here.”

“Same.”

“I played video games and worked.”

She couldn’t very well say that she defeated Mother Earth and saved the entire world, everyone would think she was joking or crazy. Everyone except Percy. 

Annabeth looked to her side at the empty desk where her boyfriend always sat, her pulse quickened and she squeezed her hands on her lap. She exhaled audibly through her nose, “oh nothing interesting Miss, I visited a few friends and met up with some relatives. You know, the standard stuff.”

Her teacher’s eyes narrowed. A few kids murmured in understanding and she heard their chairs scraping on the carpeted floor as they turned to the front. “Well,” she began, “that sounds lovely. Jordan?”

Annabeth released a breath she hadn’t realized she’d been holding in and dipped her head, silently praying for the day to end. 

anonymous asked:

I've always thought that once you owned one of the (sky) Trinistte you retain a trait that can be inherited. The Vongola Rings-Hyper Intuition, the Pacifiers-future thing, and Mare rings-side eye into other worlds. Based on the fact that (tri anon)

oh boy. /rubs hands together.

i have thought about this a bit. okay, maybe a lot. i’ve seen arco!tsuna fics where he doesn’t have the clairvoyance, i THINK there’s a few where he does? but i don’t recall that much. either way, it got me thinking.

if you go purely by canon, this is what the wiki has to say on it specifically…

Each element of the Tri-ni-set has its own individual and unique power, which is represented by their names.

The Vongola Rings’ Miracle is the ability to travel down the Vertical Space-Time Axis, which is represented by the name Vongola, which means Clam.

The Mare Rings’ Miracle is the ability to travel horizontally along the Space-Time Axis, which is represented by the name Mare, which means Sea.

The Arcobaleno Pacifiers’ Miracle is the ability to exist as points in space and time, which is represented by the name Arcobaleno, which means Rainbow

TL;DR VERSION because this got hella muckin’ long. like, 3k words long.

VONGOLA: two-way miracle that stores knowledge and passes it forward both to the descendants and back to the ancestors at the same time, manifesting as Paranoia Pings as a result of the ghosts of christmas past (and future) screaming their secrets and sins and spoilers from the subspace contained within a piece of shiny metal, and that no one but even the wearer can hear only the barest whispers of. alternatively, hyperawareness of thoroughbred racehorse levels with extra demon whispers. rates 3rd for annoying whispering rings.

MARE: miracle manifests the same way bluetooth data sharing and wireless charging works. that’s all i got. that’s really all i got. byakuran’s just crazy. it’s probably shouichi’s fault. oops. he didn’t mean to do it. probably uses that same ring-subspace to gather the flame bits from all current wearers across dimensions, mixes them up, and then plays ‘pick a card, any card. you just learned how to cure measles. oh, you already knew that. well, pick another!’ with them. rates 2nd for annoying sort-of-talking rings.

ARCOBALENO: acts as a transceiver, receiving flames from its wearer and transmitting them somewhere in order to keep the world green and spinning. sky arcobaleno clairvoyance is either thoroughbred racehorse level hyperawareness genetic mutation as a result of a True Earthling having a kid with a human (supposedly, anyway), except less high-strung and less of a tendency to see demons everywhere (well, sees demons. interprets demons. philosophizes with them. and then dies for them,) or another two-way miracle that lets them hear voices from flames past / future, or something. rates 4th for annoying not-talking not-rings.

if you’re interested in my ramblings and how i got to these conclusions, please! read on!!! it’s very long.

quite a bit of flame-related headcanons. any character bashing is entirely humorous only and not intentional, i don’t particularly hate on any characters personally.

all english quotes / transcripts are from mangahere’s versions of the scanlations (mangapanda, among others?).

Answers about Red Moon

Thanks for all your interest !
Here are more infos on Doriann and Lua.
I hope i didnt forgot anything, if you have more questions I’ll add them here.
(Sorry if its hard to read or if i made mistakes writting, its pretty late here x_x" )

I also noted down a few requests for them, maybe I’ll get to do them sometimes ^^

First of all,
What is Red Moon ?
>Red Moon is a personnal comic project. It just came to my mind with the intention to draw whatever situations i liked i a very shojoesque way. Just my guilty pleasure lol.
It’s not a project done with big ambitions or whatever. I even think it would be pretty light and cliché, but at least assumed.
So if i end up doing it one day don’t expect it to be the new great hit, really. xD
It’s just a story for fun with no pression.

Where did the inspiration for this story came from ?
>It came from the many shoujos I’ve read combined with my love of vampires which got really mangled this last years with too much exposition and not liking too much how they depicted them (twilight and compagny )

How did you came up with their names ?
>Doriann is just one of my favorites male names of all times, and for Lua i wanted something related to the moon.

What’s the main story ?
>Story takes place nowadays on lively cities such as New York. Lua is a “bloody bride” she attracts vampires, and they do want her. She is supposed to bring hella lot of powers to the one who will take her.
Doriann has been affected to protect her, but he does it his way, actually using her as bait to hunt down more vampires.

How did they met ?
>They met right after Lua’s father death, near his grave. He was there to pick her up.

More about Lua
>So as i said, she is a bloody bride. She’s born during various very unlucky events, her mother died giving birth. His father has always known “what” she was and has always make her live a pretty secluded life where she was the less possible a target. He’s been a loving dad, but he just didnt let her go out and have fun a lot.
Lua has been missing a part of a normal childhood, thus that can explain that part of her a bit too naive or innocent. (yes pretty typical stupid shojo girl here, but they are fun to work with xD  )
She used to read and watch tv a lot to stay occupied. She is well aware of her condition, but after reading and watching all those awesome series/films/whatever with vampires she kind of convinced herself that there MUST be a vampire destined to her. And that she’ll have wonderful adventures with him (or not ).
Anyway, that is the main reason she is oblivious to Doriann.

Bits of Lua’s personnality
> She’s a cheerful and curious girl but she can also be very stubborn especially concerning her fantasies. She can easily end up daydreaming too. A perfect match to bring trouble to herself.
She’s always up to go to some new places and try things. she also loves shoppings and she switches to trendy fashion and gothic lolita fashion.

More about Doriann
> He is an orphan. His parents got killed by a vampire. That’s why Lua’s father chose him to teach him and train him to protect Lua for the day he won’t be here anymore. Visiting him regularly at the orphanage.
It’s his thurst for revenge that draws him to use Lua as bait.
Lua and him did not acquaintanced as childs, but he liked her very quickly from the moment he took care of her. Afterall, he has been trained for this all this time and he his the only person he has to take care of and she has only him (even if she f*cking doesnt pay attention è_é )

Bits of Doriann’s personnality
> He is more of a loner. He doesnt like to be out too much and prefers to enjoy time at home, specially watching series. He likes to act cocky and is pretty collected in general but will easily looses his cool regarding Lua. she makes him act like an idiot.
He actually enjoys shopping too. He is fucking jealous and possessiv but he just has to suck it off as she’s not his girl.

What is their relationship and what they like about each other ?
> It looks like a sister and big brother from Lua’s point of view. She has lots of affection for him. They both take care of each other but they also bicker a lot about stupid stuff. she doesnt really understand him all the time. Still she always finds him cute somehow even when he is being all sulky because of something she might have done or said. Except when they are arguing about vampires, her clothes choices.. Ugh, who is he to tell her what to wear or like he knows everything about every vampire on earth ? she doesnt really understand why he goes “that far” into protecting her.
She enjoys when they have a break junkfood/tv together, usually he is less rough to her, she can even manage some big brother hug at that moment.
Doriann obsviously fell for her very quickly. He can’t even really tell why exactly but he loves everything about her, how lively she is, how stubborn she can be, her weird tastes in clothing sometimes… But he knows he is friendzoned and has lot of trouble dealing with his feelings. Living with her and protecting her H24 is daily torture, especially when she acts sometime so ambiguous. As a matter of fact he gets easily irrtated and gets in fights with her way more often than he would like to. He also acts rougher to her than he would like too. He feals weak around her and doesnt like that. All of this doesnt stop him from trying a move from time to time, which fails.  

Their favorite food & drink
> Doriann loves junk food, especially hot dogs. But whatever he can eat in front of tv will be fine. hell no veggies. Drink cola, lots of it, and coffee.
Lua likes to eat and taste all things she can. She likes chinese.
She’s got a sweet tooth also but she’ll still try to eat more or less healthy, anyway, she’s more reasonnable than Doriann in this matter. ( Maybe the only one actually.) she doesnt like fizzy drinks, she prefers ice tea or plain water.

Has Doriann already been in love ?
>No. He surely had fun with some girls, but no love involved.

Are there other characters in the story ?
>Yep, i could add easily 4 other characters there. *supens~~*

Will Red Moon be included in My candy love or Eldarya ? Or will it even began a game on its own ?
> No no no >n<;;
As i stated on the very first lines, those are really my characters for my pleasure. Not work.
I love my job, the games and Beemoov but what i produce for Beemoov becomes their property and they can do whatever they please with them. And i dont want to share Doriann and Lua >w<
Hope you’ll understand that :3
(nb : their names are mentionned in an eldarya episode, but the reference stops there ^^ )

Hello!

I want to thank you all so, so much for your kind messages! Once again, I apologize deeply for being so late on my replies ;_;

I was trying figure out what the best and most viable way to properly reply is, and I’ve decided to publicly publish the asks with the questions that haven’t been answered yet, while replying privately to the other ones.

I hope that’s ok! Thank you infinitely for your attention, and patience!!!

While that’s not much, here’s a peek on what’s to come in the hp au:

I wish you all a wonderful day!

I think this is a good question to open up to the blog’s followers, @acmacpc, so I hope you don’t mind me answering publicly. 

Just like running a gay NPC the same way you’d run a straight NPC, you’ll want to make sure the NPC’s mental disorder isn’t their defining feature. Maybe list out the character’s personality traits, both positive and negative ones, as well as their short-term goals. That list will give you plenty of information about your NPC and none of that info has anything to do with their disorder. Focus on what motivates the NPC first, and then figure out how their disorder may challenge their motivations. 

You’ll know you’re doing it right when your players identify that NPC with disassociate identity disorder with words like “cowardly” or “inquisitive” or “friendly.” If they’re identifying the NPCs in your game who have disorders or conditions by calling them “the crazy guy” or “the woman in the wheelchair” you may not be giving them enough to work with, and that’s giving them no other option than calling them out on the most obvious thing that makes them different. 

Has anyone else DMed characters with challenges like these? How have you run them in your game?

Hi! I was wondering how you did the animated links for your navigation? I've seen a lot of people doing them lately but I haven't been able to locate a tutorial anywhere. (Your base code is gorgeous, by the way!)

I hope you don’t mind me answering this publicly, since I received several questions about this and it looks like many people are interested in this effect.

I’m going to explain to my best ability how to achieve an animation effect like this. ( Please excuse the low quality of the gif, the programme I use to make these isn’t working so well these days, for some reason. )

First and foremost, I insist that you READ THIS TUTORIAL PAGE. I’m sure there are others like this too, but this is the page I used when I first decided that I wanted to learn how to animate objects and symbols. It’s not the fanciest tutorial out there, but it explains everything very well. And in a very simple manner, which is always a good thing for CSS newbies.

Oh my gosh thank you!

Wow guys wow. 1,400+ followers and I love each and every one of you. If you don’t know already my name is Dominique aka Pansexualfire. If you’re interested in how I look, look at the pan meet pan submissions (more on that later) if I haven’t personally greeted you then hello and welcome! I hope you like the content so far and if you ever have a question feel free to drop it in my ask box Anonymous questions are welcome. I try to answer them as soon as I see them. I check multiple times a day so no worries. If your question is a “can I see more of x” type of question or “can you define x” or “what is x” then it might take a little longer because whenever I define something on my blog I Try I give at least two different definitions (most of the time more) because there are many ways to define something. For example maybe the first two definitions of Pansexual don’t fit you but the third one does, or maybe it does it better. Everyone feels different about certain subjects and I want to try my best to help you to the best of my ability.

Although my blog is catered to Pansexual /Panromantics I often post about other orientations as well just for the fact that your sexual and romantic preferences do not have to match. (Maybe I’ll do a survey on this I’m kind of curious now to how many do and how many don’t) other reasons are that maybe you have multiple labels or you’re not really sure where you fit. I want to cater to everyone and make them feel safe and loved as well. Why not be inclusive and make all types of new friends right?

If you ever want to see more of something please let me know. Drop it in my ask box or message me either is fine. No matter what It is, it doesn’t have to be about sexual or romantic orientation, it can be about life, family, anything. I’m here to help to the best of my ability. Or if you just want to talk I’m here. A lot of you have been telling me how much you love my blog and thank you for that. You’re positive feedback is really appreciated :) honestly I love hearing from you guys.

If you want to know how to submit a Pan meet Pan (or any other submission for that matter) Go to my blog hit the “+” at the top and go to the tab labeled “Pan meet Pan and other submissions ” and submit there. You are allowed to submit anything you want us to know. If you’re to shy or don’t want to submit a picture of tour face that’s fine as well. You can submit a picture of your pet, the last book you read, your favorite stuffed animal, the view from outside your window anything you want! If you don’t want to submit a picture at all that’s also fine. If you’re not a Pansexual / Panromantic that is fine too you can still submit a Pan meet Pan as a supporter. :) All are welcome. Don’t forget to add your tumblr URL if you want people to be able to message you!

I really really Love all the positive feedback I’m getting from everyone! The Pan meet Pan submissions are going really well. :) thank you all so much once again. :) If I have some how helped any of you please let me know you can even submit it as a submission of you want! I love hearing all these wonderful things from you all 💟💛💙
You guys are so freaking amazing! I love you guys like seriously if you haven’t heard it today I love you and you are valid. 😘

I'm not an expert when it comes to cinematography, but I think I noticed a different camera work in the premiere episode. Like when Clarke talked to Roan or when she talked to Bellamy they kinda focused on them from "weird" angles. Especially when Clarke thanked Bellamy, we as the audience were so close to their faces. I'm not quite sure how to describe it haha it was unusual but I actually enjoyed it. Can you explain their new camera work?

okay, first of all, i’m very sorry for the late reply anon. we are two episodes into the new season already and i’m only getting to answer your question now, so i hope you are still interested in this. second of all, since i am extremely busy at the moment, i have to keep my answer very very short, which sucks because i love getting film related questions and discuss scenes in length, but life loooooves to get in the way so i hope that my rather short answer will satisfy you (lol), and help you understand the cinematography a bit better.

I'm back

Did you miss me ? Sry for posting less frequently over the past few weeks. I was quite busy with life outside from our Tumblrverse. In the meantime I started an Instagram account for architags. You are more than invited to join me there too. It’s fun, but totally different to Tumblr. What’s your opinion - yay or nay ? Or both ;) I have to admit at first I wasn’t really into it , but now I really like it there. It’s another great way/ tool to connect with even more blogs, people, places ….inspiration ! ( and Subtilitas is there too ) Well, well I hope you are all fine! And hey if you know of a great project just send it over and if you got a question, just ask … maybe I know the/ an answer. 😊

anonymous asked:

hello. i've been struggling a lot with finding worth in men, letting them define me instead of my King. i feel trapped by my need to be accepted. i am absolutely terrified that no one will love me in the future and that i will be alone. what are some ways to combat this anxiety regarding relationships and the battle for self worth? i'm feeling very helpless. thank you

HI sweet friend. I am SO SORRY that it’s taken us this long to answer your question. Please forgive us. I hope you read this.

Let me start by saying that the battle for self-worth is a long, long battle. It’s taken me years (not exaggerating) to win one battle. I just wrote a post about that and you can find that here.
I also HIGHLY reccommend reading this book. It’s incredible.

The key to self-worth is believing that you are already whole. When we (I’m using we because I am included in this, too)  think that a part of ourselves will come to full fruition after we find our soulmate or fall in love or get married, we keep ourselves from living a full life. We can trick ourselves into believing that we can really start our lives when we are in a relationship. 

This is a battle that’s fought in your head. This is a mental battle that the enemy is also very, very good at playing. The enemy is very good at taking our circumstances and using them to change our beliefs. If our circumstances, i.e being single, influence our beliefs, it looks like us believing that nothing will ever change. When we allow outside factors to influence our inside beliefs, we are so limited in our views of our lives. When we allow others to determine our worth, we end up believing that we don’t have any. 
When we search for our worth in people or jobs or possessions or relationship statuses or instagram likes or followers or a n y t h i n g of this world, anything that wavers, we’re going to live in fear. Because those things change. Those things fade away. 

But do you know what never fades away? Do you know what never changes? God’s word. His word never changes even when our minds do. His word never changes even when our circumstances do. His word never changes even when our hearts break. His word never changes even though we don’t always feel like it’s true. Psalm 139 will tell you what God thinks about you and how he created you and what is true about you. 

When you start to walk in the truth of who YOU are in God, when you start to believe in your heart and live in your life like you are loved right now, in this second, in this season of your life, when you start to see yourself as the beautiful daughter of the most high King, you start to win battles. And really, the entire war has already been won because Jesus defeated death on the cross and chose to die for YOU. Who else would willingly do that? That’s pretty incredible to me. Even if no one else chooses to love me for the rest of my life, someone already died an imaginable death just so I could have life. And he did it because he loves me so very, very much.

You can do this, sweet friend. It’s a long, long journey. I can’t lie to you about that. But you CAN do this. I know it can be done because I’m finally starting to see some victories. You can do it. I know you can.

anonymous asked:

What does being non binary mean to you?

Being non binary, to me?

Well, for me, it means, being unable to comprehend gender as existing solely as two discrete points. Gender, to me, feels, simultaneously more and less than that. Like, the area under a seemingly-continuous function which is indeterminate at certain values of x! 

I mean, you can’t sort other aspects of people into two piles. I was sorted into one pile, and found that some aspects of myself just didn’t mesh, so, in rebellion, I discarded all the parts of myself that fit the mold society wanted of me. 

I don’t have a gender. I feel no connection to either binary identity. I feel as if I exist without one and trying to shape myself into one or the other would only put a limit on who I am and who I can be

Though, I assume it’s probably different for other people…

By the way, this is The Boss speaking! Hope I answered your question well enough!

So I’ll be out in a few days, about 2 days visiting Davao for the day of the dead. Since I don’t have any internet access there, so I’ve decided to make a lil audio recording to answer all of your questions so ask away :D

If you have questions (personal or not) or you want to get to know me better or you want help on drawings (which I will make tutorials once I get back, I’ll try to help in any ways) , you can message me and I will answer it all.

I know this is unusual, but I want to connect to you guys and hopefully if I get enough confidence, I’ll do livestreams ; v ; )

Thank you guys for reading and hope you guys have an awesome day
