i just really think this might be real

so i’ve been thinking about what i really want to do with my life and what i want to study when i go back to school because i’ve never had a real life plan or anything but i’ve been thinking a lot lately over the past few months about how much i love talking about hockey and analyzing players and stats and with how much i’m living making these videos and just talking about this team that i might want to do sports journalism? i mean i’ve always lived writing and for a while in high school i did consider being an english major but i just didn’t know what i would DO with that degree but sports journalism is a pretty marketable degree to have.
but i feel like i should know a bit more about other sports BESIDES hockey and i’m thinking of maybe starting with baseball? idk i’m just rambling here and not really going any where with this i’m just putting my thoughts into words y'all can ignore me

kira-aso  asked:

hey could you elaborate on despairkomaeda as a foundation for kin and callout culture because i do believe youre Onto Something

it’s more vague, I can’t point to any SPECIFIC examples + I have memory issues so some of this might be wrong but

(also note that I’m not anti-kin, I’m kin myself, I’m just commenting on how it became more and more prominent)

I think despairkomaeda was the first person I ever saw a dedicated callout blog for? there were a lot of accusations floating around but no one could verify them due to no real collaboration of stories or receipts. so it was just rumors, rumors people could easily dispel with “lol they’re lying” until someone put together an actual post.

kin culture really becoming popular w DK DONKEY KONG is easier to pinpoint bc I know for a fACT I didn’t see fictionkin before DK became really popular. I saw someone say they identified w karkat but that was about it. it was just something a TINY amount of people knew about.

Then dangan ronpa gets viciously popular and DK becomes maybe the most talked about person in said fandom, enough to get a bump on fuckin retsupurae’s personal podcast iirc bc slowbeef was rlly into DR at the time and was one of the somethingawful mods who was involved in the oren LP thread.

so DK becomes a “household name” and all these ppl are exposed to the concept of being kin w a character (Komaeda obviously), and it starts to spread.

fast forward 4 or 5 years and kin drama is an integral part of fandoms. honestly, how many people first heard about wander of yonder thru the kin drama surrounding it?

I really think the DK incident changed the face of Tumblr fandom FOREVER…

but that’s all a theory………………a GAME theory.

I like this guy but my friends​ keep calling him gross and annoying. Which is sad because he knows people say that and he's actually really nice and funny and helped me out a lot. I might try asking him out... If I build up more courage. °^°

Im sorry your friends are saying that about him. Im assuming it’s for shallow reasons since you think hes actually really nice. I wouldnt know bc i dont know him lol but if you like him i say you should go for it! If your friends have any real criticisms thats important to listen to as well bc they might just be looking out for you but if not and theyre just being rude then they should stop and respect your feelings. Good luckkkkkk

Okay, but can we take a moment to realize how difficult it must have been for the creators of Yuri on Ice to even get an anime studio to work with them?

Because this was not a simple project at all.

Like, think about Kubo-sensei walking into an office to begin negotiations with an anime studio to get the project known as “Yuri on Ice” greenlit and approved for production (I mean, in real life it’s a bit more complicated than that, but let’s just imagine for the sake of brevity and clarity), and she begins pitching her product:

“We would like to make an original anime about male figure skating”

[Figure skating is one of the most niche sports you could think of, esp in Japan, which could make it really hard to sell]

“Featuring a serious emotional (romantic) relationship between two men”

[Anime is notorious for its poor presentation of homosexuality and is afraid to treat the topic seriously and respectfully because it might scare away potential viewers]

“As well as about 14 different skaters, all from different parts of the world and relevant to the story in some way”

[All of that requires extra character design and casting]

“Which would all need at least 1 figure skating program each, amounting in about 22 different skating programs total

[That requires immense amounts of animation (and research, and references for its sake) which also means the animation team has to be sufficiently large and skilled to accommodate this need]

“And for this we would also need a professional figure skating choreographer, to actually design all the programs”

[Finding someone who could design 22 different programs, some of them particularly impactful and memorable is a difficult task in and of itself and finding someone who would want to work on an anime project is even harder]

“And of course, we would need someone to write about 22 different music pieces for all of the programs”

[All of which would need to be impactful and memorable, similarly to the choreography]

“And all of this would be contained within 12 episodes.”

[Meaning very little downtime between competitions, as we saw, which means that the animation team has no time to rest because they must complete all the frames for the next episode’s programs (and let me tell you that fluidly animating figure skating is not only difficult but also time consuming as all hell)]

I feel like I could still mention a few aspects, like for example the design of the different locations and the references that it would require, but I think this already gives you a picture of how difficult it was to not only make this anime, but how hard it must have been to actually get it approved (considering how difficult the production process would be, especially for something that originally looked like a risky project that may not even be popular enough to make a profit).

In case you needed more reasons to appreciate Yuri on Ice, let’s take a moment to appreciate how much work and effort went into the creation process for this anime.

Because the fact that it even exists is nothing short of a miracle and something we should never take for granted.

Mofftiss Explain

“It’s the gayest story on the history of television.”

“We all certainly saw it as a love story.”

“They are absolutely made for each other.”

“I think it’s important that kids watching television see themselves on screen.”

“To hell with deferred pleasure.”

“I don’t know. I’m just in it.”

“It’s groundbreaking.”

“If we pull this off, it’ll be television history!”

“Insane wish fulfillment.”

“Culmination of everything we’ve been working for.”

“Shattering climax.”

“Love conquers all.”

“The real version airs tonight.”

 ———————————————————————————————————-

“What do you think, then, Doctor Watson? There’s another bedroom upstairs if you’ll be needing two bedrooms.”

“Might we expect a happy announcement by the end of the week?”

“Anything on the menu, whatever you want, free. On the house, for you and for your date.”

“Girlfriend? No, not really my area.”

“So you’ve got a boyfriend then?”

“Right. Okay. You’re unattached. Like me. Fine. Good.”

“Actually, I’ve, er, got a date.”

“That’s what I was suggesting.”

“Sherlock’s business seems to be booming since you and he became … pals.”

“He’s not gay. Why d’you have to spoil …? He’s not.”

“With that level of personal grooming?”

“Because he puts a bit of product in his hair? I put product in my hair.”

“If you don’t stop prying, I’ll burn you. I’ll burn the heart out of you.”

“I have been reliably informed that I don’t have one.”

“We both know that’s not quite true.”

“You, ripping my clothes off in a darkened swimming pool. People might talk.”

“Somebody loves you.”

“I don’t think John knows where to look.”

“No, I think he knows exactly where. I’m not sure about you.”

“Are you jealous?”

“We’re not a couple.”

“Yes you are.”

“I imagine John Watson thinks love’s a mystery to me but the chemistry is incredibly simple, and very destructive.”

“Listen, what I said before, John. I meant it. I don’t have friends. I’ve just got one.”

“I know you’re for real.”

“Your friends will die if you don’t.”

“John.”

“There’s stuff that you wanted to say … but didn’t say it.”

“Say it now.”

“No. Sorry. I can’t.”

“Yeah. We’re getting married … well, I’m gonna ask, anyway.”

“So soon after Sherlock?”

“Well, yes.”

“What’s his name?”

“It’s a woman.”

“A woman?!”

“Yes, of course it’s a woman.”

“You really have moved on, haven’t you?”

“One Word, Sherlock. That is all I would have needed. One word to let me know that you were alive.”

“Why indeed, John?”

“I prefer my doctors clean-shaven.”

“Yeah, well, be careful what you wish for. If I hadn’t come back, you wouldn’t be standing there and … you’d still have a future … with Mary.”

“She was probably right, really. I remember she left early. I mean, who leaves a wedding early? So sad.”

“No, it is! It is, and I want to be up there with the two people that I love and care about most in the world.”

“Neither of us were the first, you know.”

“So know this: today you sit between the woman you have made your wife and the man you have saved – in short, the two people who love you most in all this world.”

“Oscillation on the pavement always means there’s a love affair.”

“And of course I have to mention the elephant in the room.”

“Why would he be scared that we’re getting married?”

“No! No! Not you! Not you! You. It’s always you. John Watson, you keep me right.”

“Mr Holmes, you and I are similar, I think.”

“Yes, I think we are.”

“There’s a proper time to die, isn’t there?”

“Of course there is.”

“And one should embrace it when it comes – like a soldier.”

“Of course one should, but not at John’s wedding. We wouldn’t do that, would we – you and me? We would never do that to John Watson.”

“John Watson is definitely in danger.”

“I know what kind of man you are … but we could have been friends.”

“Because you chose her.”

“Th-the clients – that’s all you are now, Mary. You’re a client. This is where you sit and talk … and this is where we sit and listen, then we decide if we want you or not.”

“But look how you care about John Watson. Your damsel in distress.”

“And Sherlock’s pressure point is his best friend, John Watson.”

“John, there’s something … I should say; I-I’ve meant to say always and then never have. Since it’s unlikely we’ll ever meet again, I might as well say it now.”

“We’re not naming our daughter after you.”

“I think it could work.”

“Mrs Hudson, there is a woman in my sitting room! Is it intentional?”

“You have an impish sense of humour which currently you’re deploying to ease a degree of personal anguish. You have recently married a man of a seemingly kindly disposition who has now abandoned you for an unsavoury companion of dubious morals.”

“Holmes, against absolutely no opposition whatsoever, I am your closest friend.”

“Why do you need to be alone?”

“No, those are my words, not yours! That is the version of you that I present to the public: the brain without a heart; the calculating machine. I write all of that, Holmes, and the readers lap it up, but I do not believe it. … You are a living, breathing man. You’ve lived a life; you have a past. … Damn it, Holmes, you are flesh and blood. You have feelings. You have … you must have … impulses.”

“There’s always two of us.”

“Urgh. Why don’t you two just elope, for God’s sake?”

“Perhaps I was being a little fanciful … but perhaps such things could come to pass. In any case, I know I would be very much at home in such a world. … I beg to differ. But then I’ve always known I was a man out of his time.”

“Romantic entanglement would complete you as a human being.”

“The man we both love.”

“I wanted more. I still do.”

like the thing is, cis people are already attracted to trans people. i know a lot of you like to think otherwise, but you can’t just magically tell who’s trans and who’s not. that cute girl you saw at the movies might have been a trans girl. the hot guy you were drooling over in class might have been a trans guy, and unless they told you, you’d have no idea.

so the whole “i’m just not attracted to trans people” doesn’t work. you already are attracted to us, but the second you find out we’re trans, suddenly we’re unbearable? stop trying to hide behind shit like this and just admit that you’re transphobic.

Jason: Did you hear the rumor about me? That I’m gay?

Nico: I did. Yes.

Jason: And?

Nico: What?

Jason: Do you think it’s true? Do you think that I’m… gay?

Nico: Are you attracted to other men?

Jason: [scoffs] No! But, let me kick you a scenario. I’m at a beach cabana, and Brad Pitt approaches. He tries to lean in and kiss me. I would definitely resist, like at first. But if he was persistent, [long pause] I think I might give in a little bit, just to see what it… felt like.

Nico:

Jason: Would I push him away? How hard? Like, what if he’s like really aggressive?

Nico: If you resisted Brad Pitt a little bit, he would still… need to get to you?

Jason: It’s not real Brad Pitt, this is like, this is my fantasy. Or it’s like, not a fantasy, it’s just… it’s just a scenario.

Nico: Wow. I wish… I wish I could help you. I don’t… you might be gay. You might be gay.

Here’s a weird thing I’ve learned since I started working with the homeless:

If you want to know if someone grew up rich or poor, take a look at their teeth. 

It seems so stupid now, but before I got this job, I didn’t really think about teeth. I went to the dentist every six months. I was bucktoothed and gap-toothed as a child, so I got braces. That’s just how life worked. Almost everyone I knew had braces. By my final year of high school, my graduating class was a sea of perfect smiles. It never once dawned on me that other families might not have thousands of dollars to spend on cosmetic dentistry. In my world, if you needed braces and cleanings, you got braces and cleanings. 

In the real world, thousands of children go without those things. People who live on food stamps can’t afford fresh food every day; when you grow up poor, you often grow up with sugary snacks and beverages, which decay your teeth over time.If your tooth gets chipped, broken or rotten, it gets pulled or it stays that way, because you can’t afford to fix it. And at the end of the day, you end up as an adult with dental issues. 

If you have nice teeth, you probably don’t realize this, but we live in a world that is fucking obsessed with teeth. Celebrities have nice teeth. Politicians have nice teeth. When you picture a rich person, a successful person, an educated person, they have a full set of gleaming pearly whites. 

In our culture, we use “bad teeth” as a signal of poverty. They are shorthand for low education, for “hillbillies” with a lower quality of life. Bad teeth are not welcome at job interviews. They are not wanted in the dating scene. If you are trying to be taken seriously - at the bank, at the lawyer’s office, at your child’s school, at the doctor’s office - bad teeth will hold you back.

And the consequences go far beyond the social issues. Tooth problems are painful. When you go to the dentist every six months, cavities and issues get caught early. When you go years between visits, abscesses, infections, exposed nerves and irreversible damage have time to take root. It’s an extremely painful thing to live with, it can make eating unpleasant, and tooth infections can get into your blood steam and kill you. Teeth are a health problem, and yet we price dental care like a luxury commodity. 

So if you meet someone with crooked teeth, or broken teeth, or tooth decay, don’t stare. Don’t make fun of them. Don’t fixate on it. That person may not have grown up with the money or nutrition that you did. Take the person for who they are, not for the teeth in their mouth. 

Dental care should be a human right, just like healthcare. Let’s fight for that.

Johnlockers post-John beating up Sherlock

I’m just really curious coz I know the reaction might be varied and I just really wanna know how people feel about johnlock considering how John very violently beat up Sherlock (and Sherlock lets it happen coz he thought he deserves it) so yeah what’s your stance on johnlock now? Do you think the hug is enough to fix all? Must John apologize to Sherlock? Idk thoughts??

((I don’t wanna hear MP theories or it’s-not-real theories though))

@happierstill @kellpod @beejohnlocked @vanetti @johnlocklives @johnandsherlocks @riteofashkente @johnnlocked @loveinthemindpalace

real talk, i don’t know what to put on my christmas list this year now that yuri on ice has given me a viable ship for yuri plisetsky with a character i actually really like. otabek just shows up out of nowhere with his gruff antisocial ways and then fuckin sweeps yuri off his feet on a fucking motorcycle because he might not like most people, but he has been planning to court yuri for ages?? like shut the fuck up, this is some next level mr. darcy type shit. 

Do any INFPs or anyone relate to this?

So i feel like people always think of INFPs as like these really emotional/sensitive people.
And that may be true but
I’ve noticed that (at least for me) I am sensitive and stuff but only on the inside you know?

Yes I cry easily at movies
But you wouldn’t know that cause I’m like “let’s watch a comedy” to avoid that.

Yes I dream about someone who will come and sweep me off my feet
But you wouldn’t know cause I’m always like “I hate people” and “I don’t need love to be happy”

Yes I have crap that I go through everyday
But you wouldn’t know that because
I don’t want to burden people with my problems and I would rather listen to you anyway

Yes it hurts when I get excluded from things
But you wouldn’t know that because I shrug it off and say “I’d rather be home alone anyway”

Yes I cry sometimes at night when I think about the past
But you wouldn’t know that cause during the day I always telling you to “look forward” and “be happy”

Yes when someone says something about me it hurts
But you wouldn’t know because I laugh along with everyone else


My point is
People seem to have a certain opinion of me and see me as someone who’s always there to help. But in reality I’m just trying to get through with a smile on my face.

Can any INFPs relate? Or just me?
Not just INFPs. Does anyone relate?
Reblog and tell me.

i just finished binge watching you me her on netflix and it’s the first television show i’ve ever watched that features an openly poly couple. it has comedy, drama, romance and it even gave me some serious wisteria lane flashbacks as the neighbors started to snoop into their personal business. the characters are all well written/acted and i’ve even seen ppl call each other out for saying problematic shit like sexist stuff. it’s happening more often in tv shows and all i say is “keep it coming, stay woke tv creators”

if it’s something that you think might interest you as well i definitely recommend you check it out. fair warning, it gets a little raunchy at times. but despite me usually not digging that, it’s the characters that really came thru for me on this one. not only are the three main characters all likable: izzy is super funny and dedicated and so well acted, her pain and her struggles felt real, just like her happiness. emma is so inspirational and strong and deserves all the good things at work. and then there’s jack, who’s just as smart and good at his job but also he’s a gentle man and an adorable doofus

man, this is the first time i have ever watched a love triangle unfold and i ended up rooting for everyone in the scenario

Why are people so against the movie Split?

Let’s start here: only about 200,000 people in the world experience DID, which means that it is very rare. It is something that is developed over years and years of extremely harsh abuse.

This was something that I looked up myself, after having watched the movie Split. Although I am inexperienced with DID I did not once think that anyone with that illness is as violent and as monstrous as was depicted in that movie. The movie was fictional and for entertainment purposes only, it did not directly call out people in the real world with DID. In fact, if anything it made me more aware of the fact that people have this mental illness and how intriguing it really is. It might not even be a mental illness at all, it might just be the mind’s defense against bodily harm and trauma.

There are so many questions about DID and so much room for research that can be done. I never had thought that the director had purposefully made this film to demean DID patients, I believe entirely that it was made for entertainment only. While also having drawn more attention to DID, so that people know. Because obviously people don’t know enough. There is such a small population of people suffering from this disorder that it is hardly known. So if anything, we should welcome this movie with open arms as a thing of pure entertainment. I truly believe that everyone that had walked out of that theatre, or at least the majority, had looked up DID and had educated themselves on it.

EVERYONE NEEDS TO STOP MAKING A BIG DEAL OUT OF THIS FREAKING MOVIE!!!

what got you into vmin? i mean, do you ship them romantically or just as a bromance? who do you think tops? do you think it could be real? what's your favourite vmin concept? hehe, sorry, i'm just really curious.

  • i don’t remember what exactly got me to ship them the way i do now but i am sure that this was one of the very first vmin moments that made me really emotional (i might or not have shed some tears)
  • i ship them in both ways!! i really appreciate whatever relationship they have with each other be it just friendship or romance. to me they click on both;;
  • to me they both top and bottom. switching is a wonderful thing that exists
  • romance wise i have no idea but i highly doubt it is;; but i do know for a fact that they have a whole lot of adoration for one another and a really genuine relationship so that’s what matters!!!
  • them continuing to care for each other, and shower each other with affection and also keeping their promise of growing old together…. that’s my fave concept

Who is in the picture? Ciel’s twin? Or perhaps someone else Agni knew?

I think it’s Ciel’s twin.

Is it Ciel who arrived in the mansion?

There’s a possibility of him being Ciel. The possibility are big. Yana-sensei might want us to think that it is really him and it could be true. Unless….

Do you think Elizabeth is the who arrived in the mansion?

Tough question, I think there’s a chance it is her. Since Prince Soma treats Lizzie like a younger sister, it’s normal for him to worry and act casually around her since she’s Ciel’s fiancée. But for her to use the word ‘pals’ is just too different.
Could someone translate the real word from the raw version?

She could have a change of personality but then again, it could really be her.

Do you think Ciel’s twin is the one who actually arrived at the mansion? Damnit. This just blows me mind away. But then again, there’s a possibility that he is alive and are the one who is in the mansion. Even if our Ciel is cruel, he wouldn’t be that cruel to shot a person he knew and has worked together. And even live together. Also, cared for him.

Do you think Prince Soma got shot?

Yes. No. I can’t answer this one, it’s hard. Agni could just save him and take the shot. Prince Soma could be shotted. Sebastian might stop the bullet. Anything could happen.

Did you notice the deer head Sebastian once used to save Prince Soma?

Yes. I saw it and recognized it immediately. 😂

What is your feeling when Ciel said that Lizzie’s disappearance is a pain.

Honestly, it hurt me. It just shows that Ciel doesn’t like people dragging his work down, there’s nothing wrong with that but man, it still hurt. Imagine Lizzie hearing that, what do you think how she must’ve felt?

Do you think the word Sebastian told Ciel said by Lizzie, “I, for one”, reminded him of something?

Ciel’s face looked like he’s reminded of something. I NEED TO KNOW NOW. 😂

Are you satisfied with this month’s chapter? Is it short?

Yes, I am satisfied with this one but not with the cliffhanger (╥_╥)
And I think this month’s chapter is short. I know Yana-sensei and her editor is working hard and I appreciate it, but getting no more than 35 pages a month is also hard for us. I mean, some of weekly updated mangas reached 25 or more pages once in awhile.
But, *sigh* I know this arc will be a big one. And we all have to be patient.

An Army's love..

Umm i dont know why.. But i just woke up and was scrolling on the tumblr bangtan hashtag (because im trash lol) and i was seeing pictures, gifs, vids, etc. Of the members, and i got to thinking. “I really do love them, like love love.” I mean i never really been in a real realtionship before soo i dont really know what the context is for the word “love”, but i just can feel it in my heart, you know? Like how i am always thinking about them, whether if it’s at school, home, church, or just in public. My thoughts always run back to them. In march when i finally get to see them… I might just faint. I dont know if this is just me being a crazy fangirl or just pure innocent love, but i know in my heart that bts will be sticking around for a loooong time….

I’m really glad that you like it and want to share it or put it on your account or whatever reason you have, but please don’t repost it, even if you give credit. Don’t crop it and put a filter on it and put it on Instagram, YouTube, anywhere for that matter. I hate saying no to people but I’ve been ignored so many times when I try to speak with reposters and it really hurts to know that people care so little for my feelings on this matter.

I’m okay with dubs and translations but please ask me first.

anonymous asked:

what are shadow people exactly? are they spirits or demons or what?

it largely depends on your worldview. a lot of people say theyre demons (or at least malevolent), or that theyre something from another dimension, or that theyre manifestations of bad energies or w/e. generally ppl think theyre a lot of different things, like some might be human ghosts, some might be demons, etc. 

personally the impression i get from them is pretty neutral rather than ‘good’ or ‘evil’, maybe a little curious, so if theyre real i think theyre just some kind of nonhuman entity we dont really have a name for
