This is hilarious omw SMOKING LIKE REALLY 😂 😂😂There's a million pics&vidz of rihanna/britney smoking but its not an issue???? Does these ppl know Selena smokes too??

You’re the only one on my wavelength right now. 😏

anonymous asked:

But she told me it was cool and that it didn't bother her, that loving her wasn't weird just that we'll never be more than friends.. ( we're both girls ) her attitude online is really weird that's the only big change... I'm really confused mom, it's the first time I've ever loved someone and I don't know what to do :(

okay so something similar happened to me.

when we are told we will never be more than friends, we have to accept it. we have to move on.

staying in love/like with that person will only end up hurting us.

the distance may not be because you told her about your feelings. people grow and change. its not because of you. people change rapidly and that’s why loving someone is hard.

its okay, sweets. you are going to be alright.

i’m going to tell you something i have learned after heartbreak.

don’t hold on to this love. love yourself. love the world around you.

focusing all your love on one person is dangerous.

  • Say No To This: ...damn...just...damn...
  • The Room Where It Happens: I want to feel bad for Burr but he's reminding me of those 'try too hard' kids. Like you.

  • Ravenclaw: I think I'm going die of embarrassment.
When Asking a Deity for Favors

I think its EXTREMELY important to keep in mind that you are asking a GOD or GODDESS to help you with something. This means they are not at all obligated to do exactly what you are asking of them. 

So for example, if you ask Aphrodite for help in your relationship, keep in mind you are inviting the Goddess of Love into your relationship to essentially do what she feels best. If she doesn’t like the relationship her “help” may be getting you out of it even though you wanted her to help make it better. You could ask her to bring “love” into your life and she may, instead of bringing you your soulmate, teach you to love yourself.

This isn’t to ward you off from asking any deity for a favor. I just really think its important to keep in mind that what you are asking for may not come to you in the specifics that you asked. And its not out of malice or anything, I think a lot of the times they just think they know better than you and they find their way to be more helpful. Or if you’re dealing with Hermes, he just likes messing with you which you should have already realized that was probably going to happen when you went to Hermes for a favor! (Though he does still manage to be helpful even with the games he plays). But yeah, my point is before you ask, make sure you are okay with the fact that your deity may do things differently than you asked of them or they may not fulfill your request at all. Remember the gods aren’t here to serve us. They help us because they want to, not because they have to (or in Hermes case, to amuse themselves).

mcartist  asked:

Since it's Valentine's Day.(Have the RFA+V+Searan) I would love to ask if you could do MC and her brother spending Valentines together. The others couldn't spend time cause they were busy. So once they have some time to spare them look for you and see you are your brother hanging out. Yet you are siblings so you sorta close to each other and some things seem romantic. The others don't know you have a brother. So how would they react? If you can't do it, it's okay. Happy Valentine's Day!

OOooh scandalous~ 
(It’s the day after Valentine’s Day here because I live in Australia and we live in the future but I’d be happy do do this!)

Yoosung: 

✮ he was busy with some huge LOLOL event that was happening for valentine’s 
✮ he felt bad but you assured him that it was fine and you would just go see family or a friend or whatever 
✮ so when he leaves the house to get food and sees you with some guy??
✮ YANDERE YOOSUNG UNLEASHED 
✮ your brother was teasing you by pulling and twisting your hair 
✮ but to yoosung it looked like he was hella flirting 
✮ basically stomps up and flicks your brother’s hand away 
✮ ‘excuse me, why are you touching my girlfriend? huh?’ 
where did this confidence come from hmmmm
✮ your brother is confused because ‘omg is this the innocent yoosung MC was talking about???’
✮ you’re trying not to fall over from laughing 
✮ your brother looks absolutely horrified 
✮ “MC is mY siStEr! who are you, huh punk?’ 
✮ yoosung.exe has stopped working
✮ almost cries
✮ apologises 38918475 times he feels so bad 
✮ is pouting for the rest of the day and puts the LOLOL event on the back burner 

Jaehee: 

✎ she told you beforehand that valentine’s was going to be probably the busiest day for the cafe 
✎ but W O W 
✎ the cafe was packed and you hardly got to see jaehee 
✎ and your brother visited during your lunch break 
✎ so you two were just standing in a corner, trying to leave as much room for the actual customers that you could 
✎ things died down for a total of maybe five minutes 
✎ and jaehee looked around to find you and saw your brother squishing your cheeks together while you both laughed 
✎ she really wanted to go over there and judo kick someone’s ass but she still had customers 
✎ she was kinda angry for the rest of the day 
✎ until afterwards you walk up with your brother and introduce them 
✎ her face is redder than saeyoung’s hair 
✎ she refuses to admit anything 
✎ except when you’re back home she’s super affectionate 
✎ and at first you think it’s just valentine’s day love 
✎ but she’s super clingy and kind sheepish 
✎ so you ask what the deal is 
✎ and she begrudgingly admits that she saw you and your brother when you were messing around and didn’t realise it was your brother
✎ you have to try and maintain the giggles because she’s obviously embarrassed
✎ cute baehee 

Zen:

✿ he was really busy rehearsing an upcoming musical 
✿ and the director was super strict and wasn’t letting anyone out for the day 
✿ during one of the breaks he picked up his phone and noticed that his fans were all tagging him in the same thing
✿ and he went to it and it’s a picture of you with some guy?!?!?!?!
✿ and he’s so scandalised

✿ he basically spams the picture with multiple exclamations akin to ‘WTF MC’ 
✿ you’re freaking out because he’s just sending mindless messages now and won’t stop to listen 
✿ and saeyoung is just off his chair laughing because he obviously knows who it is (background check) 
✿ you send a selfie of you and your brother both with a ‘wtf’ face and the ‘boi’ hand at the camera 
✿ and zen finally stops 
✿ you send another picture but this one’s of you and your brother when you were babies

₩ you laugh and say you wouldn’t do that and shower him in affection

Sense8 | All I Want Right Now Is One More Bullet

At least we know the name of the restaurant.

Okay lets get this straight people...

You want to express your disappointment in a chapter? That’s okay…

You dislike so and so ship happening? That’s okay too…

No one is forced to like the direction a story is going, and of course no one is forced to like a ship happening that’s not their own, i know that cause i have been there too.

Let me tell you this, i would have honestly been upset if touken didn’t happen, just like how the hidekane shippers felt disappointed and sad, i would have vented my frustrations as well, its normal to be upset that something we wished to happen didn’t happen, no one can stop you from venting your emotions… 

See this is the thing, everyone is allowed to express their displeasure at something BUT WHEN YOU EXPRESS WITH DEATH THREATS….

I am sorry but WHAT THE EVER FREAKING FUCK IS THIS SHIT???

To go as far as to ask someone to kill themselves? For one do you have any shred of humanity in you to ask someone to commit suicide? Over a freaking ship? Do you think the world revolves around your personal wants? Let me spell this to the so called FANS, Tokyo Ghoul is NOT YOUR STORY, it is Ishida suis story, he has the absolute freedom to take his story in any direction he wants, he is not freaking entitled to respond to your whining, especially when it comes to a goddamn harmless FICTIONAL ship! 

I have seen many toxic shipping fandoms but i never expected this toxicity to reach Tokyo ghoul of all things! What bought us all together in the first place, the freaking ships? Heck no it was the story! Ishidas story. He made us intrigued and wait in suspense in whats to come next, he made us love his fictional characters that we as real people can even relate to, he made us emotional for these characters fates, and lets not forget his passion to showing us his flawless,evolving,gorgeous art, and his efforts to learn English so he can communicate with his international fans… he never stopped giving his best to us and now you ungrateful jerks suddenly want to forget EVERYTHING from what Ishida and Tg gave us…  

Its at days like these that i wish manga creators wouldn’t have twitters or any other form of social media where they might witness what these horrible fans… excuse me i meant ASSHOLES send death threats over a ship… I am just frustrated and disappointed with the ugly side of the fandom…

(Edit: i removed the picture since not everyone on the comment section were seriously malicious )

Writing Series #2: Plotting

Everyone has their own strategy for this one, but it’s also probably the aspect of writing that we ask each other about most of the time: what do you do to figure out your plot? How do you stick to a plot? How do you know where a story is going? How do you stay interested long enough to finish? How do you keep from getting lost? For first time writers, this is particularly daunting, as we tend to think of a book–all 80,000 words or so–as overwhelming and more than we know how to accomplish, as something too big or unattainable. 

Some writers sit down with a single idea and go from there, letting the story come as it may and waiting for the ideas to strike as they write. For many writers, this works. For me, it doesn’t. 

My process looks a lot more like this:

  1. Wait for an idea to strike (and I mean strike; it has to come to me, haunt me, bug me, until I’m sure I can do nothing but write it)
  2. Plot. Plan out everything. Write it all down, outlining each chapter–what will happen in each and how many there will be.
  3. Write. 
  4. Edit. 
  5. Edit again. 

Step One: There are lots of good ideas out there, and my notebooks are filled with ideas; ideas that occurred to me in the middle of the night, ideas I thought up after witnessing something in a park or listening to a good song. New ideas are exciting and can lead to great things, but I won’t turn any of them into a book until I’m sure the idea won’t go away. 

I don’t write it down. That’s the first test; if I haven’t forgotten it the next day, or the next, or the next, then I know it might actually lead somewhere, that it’s not a fleeting idea that will tempt me and then leave me hanging. I let this go on for a month–yes, a whole month–and if at the end of that month, I still can’t let that idea go, if it’s still rolling around in my head, waiting to be explored, then I move onto step two. By then, I know that the idea and me are long-term, that we’re in this for the long run. 

Step Two: I plot. I plot everything. 

  • I start with the main arc: where do I want the story to start, and where do I want it to finish. In my most recent story, for example, I knew that I wanted the main character to begin cynical of love and relationships, and I wanted the story to end with him opening his heart to the possibility (even if he wasn’t yet in a relationship–that bit I’d find out later). I knew I wanted the three strangers at the beginning of the story to be best friends by the end. I knew they’d all start with some trauma, and I wanted them all to successfully be on the path to recovery and healing by the end. 
  • Then I looked to time: I believe it’s important to know just how much ground, chronologically speaking, a book is going to cover. I needed to know how long my characters would have to experience the emotional growth mentioned above (the less time, the more the plot would have to directly affect them, the more intense that plot would need to be). I gave them the summer. Just three months to learn and get to know each other, which meant every day was going to count, and I wasn’t going to be writing a lot of moments skipping ahead in time. (If the story was to last five years, for example, I’d have a lot more room to build these relationships, and so things could unfold more subtly and with large chunks of time between.)
  • Then I look to characters: I write down all the main and minor characters (naming them is a good first step, though this can change later) and I write down both their emotional state when the story starts and what they’re actively doing with their lives, and their emotional state when the story ends and where they’re at/going with their lives then. 

As you’ll see, there’s a pattern here: I figure out point A and point B. Then I make a list of little things I want to happen, different scenes that have begun to play out in my head, interactions I want the characters to have, pitstops no the way from A to B. And slowly, I build the story around them. I begin to figure out how we get there, which road the story is going to take, and little by little, the story comes together until I have an outline that looks a bit like this:

Chapter One: Opens in [setting]. Character A talks to Character B about [topic] They meet Character C. Ends with Character A realizing [topic]. 

And so on, until we get to the last chapter. In a way, this outline becomes a script, my go-to plan. 

Do I always stick to the script? No. But when I begin to write, I keep that list pulled up beside my new blank word document, and I read it from time to time. Sometimes, once I get writing, once I begin to know the characters a bit more, and once the story finds a voice of its own, I go off script, and the story takes me places I wouldn’t have expected. But I always make sure I refer back, make sure that one way or another, I come back to to road map. It’s okay to take a pitstop on the path, to go off on a tangent, but the plot map allows me to find my way back to what’s relevant, to what I know has to happen to get from A to B. 

For any writers out there who worry about making their stories big enough, who have trouble thinking of side plots, this is also a good way to map that out and see where your story has room to grow and what it can encapsulate. It lets you see just how big the story will become and if it belongs in novel format or if, perhaps, the idea is better suited for a short story. 

To all the writers out there: how do you plot? Are you a planner or a wing-it sort of writer, or is there some way to write in between? Feel free to comment her or message with your go-to tips!

Why was Zhan Zheng Xi so cold and distant to Jian Yi in the beginning of 19 Days?

AFTER ALL THESE YEARS I NEVER KNEW MOST OF 19 DAYS IS SET IN THE PAST WHEN THE BOYS WERE IN MIDDLE SCHOOL BEFORE JIAN YI DISAPPEARED FOR 3 OR SO YEARS ON THE SECOND DAY OF HIGH SCHOOL

AND YOU KNOW WHAT BREAKS MY HEART??!!!?!??! I was so freaking confused why in the first 54 chapters, Xi was so violent to Jian Yi and I only realized TODAY that this is because after all the days they spent as best friends, AFTER ALL THE RELATIONSHIP DEVELOPMENT,

After going through ups and downs that threatened their friendship and surviving that,

And Xi wanting to understand his best friend more and developing a more gentle side for Jian (his one true love he just hasnt realized it yet coz oblivious af),

After all of Xi gradually being able to let his guard down, accept his feelings and have the courage to share them to Jian Yi,

After all the times Jian and Xi spent building a relationship that was getting closer to something much more than friendship, JIAN YI’S DAD GETS HIM ALL KIDNAPPED AND SHIT ON THE SECOND DAY OF HIGH SCHOOL?!?!?!?!?!?!

JUST IMAGINE THE PAIN AND ANGUISH XI FELT HAVING LOST HIS BEST FRIEND!!! HIS ONE TRUE LOVE!!! Xi even thought he’d never see Jian again.BRUH WHEN JIAN WAS KIDNAPPED THE FIRST TIME AND WAS GONE FOR TWO DAYS, XI WAS A MESS ALREADY AND LOSES HIS SHIT WHEN HE GOT A TEXT FROM JIAN YI TO MEET UP!! THAT WAS 2 DAYS. WHAT ABOUT 3 OR SO YEARS?!!?!

Have you ever wondered why Xi is so violent and cold to Jian in the first chapters and the original one shot?

Look at the difference between middle school Xi taking care of drunk Jian

and university Xi dealing with drunk Jian. Mind you in the timeline after his disappearance, Jian has been shown to be an alcholic despite not being able to hold his liquor (HINT: HE HAS SERIOUS PROBLEMS).
External image
Well that’s because after losing Jian Yi and thinking he’d never come back, do you think Xi is ready to just let Jian Yi in that easily again considering the pain and suffering he might go through if Jian Yi disappears again? No. It’s not going to be that easy. All that closeness and intimacy from middle school is switch with cold hard distance after Jian comes back.

Obviously Xi still loves Jian. I think that in times that Xi really needs comfort and affection, Xi won’t be able to resist. Why else would he keep letting Jian come over to his apartment all the time? But it’s difficult to return to how things were in the past.

Xi gets defensive through violence over the smallest things like casual flirting or a slight touch unlike back then where he’d only glare or simply tell Jian off when he gets all touchy. I mean Jian gets punched and sht too but its not as violent and cold rejection.

External image
Jian must go through so much again trying to close that gap between their relationship but even he has his own secrets and problems that he’s not willing to share.This makes this scene:
External image
even more devastating knowing shit will hit the fan in the future. Jian Yi did come back after 3 or so years, but it’s going to take a long time for Xi to forgive.

GOD I FEEL SO STUPID FOR NOT REALIZING THIS SOONER OMFG. I GENUINELY DID NOT MAKE THE CONNECTIONS OKAY. OMFG AND WHAT HAPPENED TO TIANSHAN IN THOSE FEW YEARS WHEN JIAN WAS GONE?? Are they the “everyone” Jian was referring to when he said “Getting together with everyone was so much fun.” in one of the first few chapters set after his disappearance? SO MANY QUESTIONS. SO MUCH PAIN.

EDIT: none of the images work and idk what to do. Help? Edit: they work now yay!

You were the first to ask me if I’m okay. It’s not even a big deal, but those words…strangely comforted me.

the world has a crazy way of working itself out. the love of your life broke your heart? well sweetheart then they weren’t the love of your life, doesn’t mean you didn’t love them, and it doesn’t mean it didn’t hurt, it just means that it wasn’t meant to be forever. you’re going to meet someone who knows you better than you know yourself. who knows exactly how you like your coffee, or how you always sleep on your left side, or how when you wear your favorite blue top, your eyes look just a little brighter, or how youd rather wake up early and see the sunrise even if it means you’ll be tired all day. you’re going to meet someone who wants to give you the world, someone who sees you as their world. i know it feels like the end of the world, and thats okay. its okay to fall down but you’ve got to pick yourself back because better things are coming your way. this is not the end, it is just the beginning.
