i know she isn't american but

People need to stop sensing ridiculous asks... I am a baby witch and English isn't even my native language but I understood perfectly what you meant. And I agree. Just a question, is there any good site talking about traditional witchcraft ? I can't buy books for now... I don't think I am going to try it but it is always good to know about tradition.

For lowercase traditional? Outside of tumblr? Start with Sarah Lawless. 
Then go wander around the information Gemma Gary has put out. She has some stuff up on online, I think. 
Then head on over to New World Witchery. They focus on American folkloric witchery. The lore they pull up is really incredible. 
I’d found a blog not too long ago that was pretty great called Blood and Spicebush. It’s worth taking a look at. 

I’m going to say something that will probably cause me a lot of backlash. 
I’ve read a lot comments were people rant about how terrible Laura is, how she’s an asshole toward Shadow. And don’t get me wrong this is all true, to a certain degree. It stops being true when you think a woman deserved to die because of cheating on her husband. Yes, Laura wasn’t the faithful, sweet wife that american tv shows usually portray. She was a depressed, apatic woman, who tried to kill herself and literally felt nothing. 
Now Shadow is adorable, the man of everyone’s dream, but he totally failed to see Laura’s depression. Can you really love somebody and not to notice how empty they feel? I think not. He had in his mind this idealized version of Laura, in which she was this sweet, meek thing, that she’s not. 
He did know nothing of the person he married. 
So yes she isn’t exactly the most correct person in the world, she promised she would wait for shadow and didn’t mean it, but can we really say she is an asshole for the sole reason of not loving him back? even when he’s in love with a mystified version of her?

Do you think Katie knows that her american accent isn't perfect and that people keep talking about it? I personally find it endearing and I don't want her to ever "improve" because Lena's voice is part of what makes her so perfect but I kinda feel bad when I read a review or an opinion talking about it

i think katie is very conscious of it, and i think it’s probably something she has received feedback on repeatedly, and therefore probably something she is really trying hard at to improve. it sucks that they keep commenting on it, because lena’s voice is delicious, and that bit of irish/british accent coming through makes lena even more refined and perfect. she sounds professional and expensive, two things that lena IS. it just wouldn’t be the same with a generic american accent. our accents suck, lmao. they did katie a disservice in this case by not allowing lena to just keep the full blown accent and roll with it. hell, they let her ex boyfriend jack spheer have one and no one batted an eye about HIS back story or commented on rahul not hiding it so…???. 

the only thing i do enjoy is that when katie tries to tame her irish accent, her voice goes lower, and that gives lena that throaty sound that is just beyonddddd sultry. but it seems like in s3 they’re letting katie have more freedom with it, because she is not trying NEARLY as hard to hide it. listen to her say “literally” in s2 and then listen to 3x1 lmfao its night and day. i think they’re just letting it be, so it’d be cool if the reviewers could just let it go too. at the end of the day, it’s not like anywhere in canon it was announced that LENA LUTHOR IS 100% AMERICAN lmao. like, she went to some elusive boarding school that we know nothing about – chalk it up to plot holes and move on.

I know this has like nothing to do with the game itself, but rather the previous ask about Claire Temple...Isnt Elektra also POC? I mean the actress, Elodie Yung's, mother is Cambodian. So isn't she technically POC too?

i want all the POC nonny. and last event African American Riri Williams was premium and this event, African American Claire Temple is also premium. During Spiderman, African American Miles Morales was essentially premium as well. it’s not a good pattern brent. 

It’s 2 o’clock In the Morning.

About an hour ago ,I opened a bottle of Snapple and read the fact on the lid. Apparently, the moon is 81 billion tons. I told my mom and she claimed it was pure supposition because there is no way to weigh the moon. This lead me into explaining the mathematical process they probably used to make a guesstimate, which ended up with us discussing gravity.

  • Is the moon actually several times heavier than it is, since there is such low gravity in space?
  • Would a jackhammer work at the same speed on the moon?
  • Would a Bubblehead Charm work in space?

I then proceeded to wonder about the space suits because I would like to go to space but not have to wear the stupid suit. Which then prompted the question:

  • How do they deal with their waste?

This prompted my mom into searching because ‘if you never ask, you’ll never search, and you’ll never learn’. I proposed the idea of catheters because it takes a long time to get the suits on and the lack of gravity kind of slows everything down.

We found out:

  1. Astronauts in the 60s(who were all men) wore bags with straps on their asses and condom like pouches over their dicks to deal with their waste.
  2. Nowadays, they wear adult diapers and are expected to deal with it for hours at a time.
  3. It can take more than 45 minutes to put a space suit on properly.
  4. They routinely dump their waste into space.(Which got mom thinking about Superman getting hit in the face with it at some point, and aliens wanting to destroy us because some dude’s shit from the 60s managed to travel light-years and slapped someone in the face.)

So yeah, weird and gross imagery.

A few moments later, I opened another bottle of Snapple and found out that president James Madison had a pet parrot that ended up outliving him. Mom then goes, ‘who got the parrot when he croaked?’. An interesting question, I will admit. No answer was forthcoming.

I simply shrugged and said something about what if there was a parrot in the White House now. She starts cackling and says, ‘What if the Russians think they’ve got a spy or something, and it’s just a fucking parrot?!’

I proceeded to mimic parrot noises and said, ‘They probably don’t know everything about American accents, so when the parrot makes that weird noise at the beginning and end of every sentence, they probably assume it’s some odd dialect or accent.’

This spiraled out of control it uproarious laughter and me mentioning a, ‘big red button, AUK!’.

I then tell her that some parrots are good dancers, to which she replies, ‘I would prefer a parrot as a president. At least its coiffure would be real!’

And basically, this has been one hell of a night and it’s only 2:20 AM.

anonymous asked:

it's interesting the people that are telling people to calm down are the American fans that know they have tour dates

I think international fans are just used to this happening every tour cycle?  where she seems to be going to less and less countries, even though her popularity is growing. 

And I’m lucky, i know she’s going to come to Australia, even if i have to travel 4 hours to get to a concert. But it seems like she may skip who continents which just makes me sigh. 

sentimentalgeek  asked:

Do you know if Media will be in the next American Gods episode? I don't know why, but I feel like I read that she isn't in the next few episodes...

I don’t know! :( she’s wasn’t in the promo trailer, but that doesn’t mean she isn’t in the episode. Though, I feel like at this point, Gillian or Bryan Fuller would have tweeted something and teased about her next impersonation. We’ll see…

So I have a habit of livetexting everything I read/watch to the person who got me into it, and it's generally regarded as quite amusing. My dear friend Mycroft recently got me into Young Wizards, and he suggested that I put one of my livetexts up on Tumblr as my introduction into the fandom. So here goes "Iago reads High Wizardry" (lightly edited to make reading easier).
  • Iago: *picks up High Wizardry* Here we go.
  • Iago: Oh god. Setting up a computer in the nineties. This should be fun.
  • Iago: Dari wearing a Star Wars shirt makes me incredibly happy.
  • Iago: Nita's parents affronted by the fact that Dari can set up the computer without instructions is just perfect.
  • Mycroft: Dairine is the best Star Wars nerd.
  • Iago: She also likes X-Men, which is perfect.
  • Iago: "The sure way to make the world work for you was to know everything. Dairine sat home and busied herself with conquering the world." New favorite character? I think so.
  • Mycroft: I think she became like half the fandom's favorite character at that exact moment. Myself included--I can definitely relate.
  • Iago: *laughs* At least I'm in good company, then.
  • Iago: I hope Dari eventually conquers the world. We couldn't have a better ruler.
  • Mycroft: Amen to THAT.
  • Iago: Oh sweet lord Dari took the Oath we're all toast.
  • Iago: Dari with a lightsaber is a terrifying thought.
  • Iago: Dari's going to have an affinity for computer systems, isn't she?
  • Iago: Awwwww, Nita's upset that Kit didn't notice her new boobs!
  • Mycroft: Also consider this- since Dari took the Oath, she could probably make a lighsaber out of wizardry if she really wanted.
  • Iago: Oh sweet minty Jesus we're fucked.
  • Iago: Oh look, Dari's created a second computer.
  • Mycroft: It's always good to have backups...
  • Iago: It's her Wizard's manual, isn't it?
  • Mycroft: I'm saying nothingggggg.
  • Iago: It's totally her manual. It's fucking taking her to Mars as we speak,
  • Mycroft: Okay yes. That is a thing.
  • Iago: Obviously that means she has an affinity for computers. I'm a writer. i know these things.
  • Iago: It also means that she might have and easier time with wizardry that Kit and Nita, because she just has to command the computer.
  • Mycroft: Brace yourself for the "computer wizard" puns. They're gonna happen.
  • Iago: YUS
  • Iago: How convenient is it that two of the *four* North American Senior Wizards live within relative spitting distance of our main characters?
  • Iago: Wait, puberty gives you more power? Fuck, why wasn't *I* a wizard? That could have made things a hell of a lot easier.
  • Iago: Souls are one to a customer *on this planet*? The hell does that mean?
  • Mycroft: It's a big, weird Universe out there...
  • Iago: Fair play to you.
  • Iago: Ah, the trouble with going to a place about which you know nothing: you find yourself talking to the luggage. I wouldn't be surprised if, at some point, Dari used the wrong verbs and ended up kissing a complete stranger.
  • Iago: Ah, planet-hopping youth. Always expecting something they're familiar with, when someone more experienced would know not to expect anything.
  • Iago: "Tentacled" being used as a way to describe how people get around brings me much joy.
  • Mycroft: SAME. Also, welcome to the Crossings. You'll be seeing a lot of it.
  • Iago: Oh boy. That sounds ominous.
  • Mycroft: Well, I mean it's a popular travel hub.
  • Iago: Fair enough.
  • Iago: Oh my god are those actually dinosaurs.
  • Iago: Holy shit it's like a bloodhound but it's a dinosaur yes good I approve of this.
  • Iago: Oh shit, now she's covering her trail. How the hell are Kit and Nita going to fin her
  • Iago: God, this galaxy sounds beautiful.
  • Iago: Kit and Nita in a "permanent partnership". *waggles eyebrows*
  • Mycroft: INDEED.
  • Mycroft: They're so adorably awkward.
  • Iago: Especially at thirteen and fourteen. This is perfect.
  • Iago: And we're back to Nita considering asking Kit what he thinks about "things".
  • Mycroft: Bless her beautiful relatable awkwardness.
  • Iago: Yes, Tom, tell the magical children to go to major law enforcement authorities. That can't possibly backfire in your face.
  • Iago: planet-sized computer chip = yes good.
  • Mycroft: Wasn't it terrifying when Dairine thought she'd fried her Manual. Stranded in the middle of a distant unexplored planet is not the greatest time for that.
  • Iago: It was too far from the end of the book for her to be dead just yet.
  • Iago: Ah! She's teaching it and everything is beautiful and nothing hurts.
  • Iago: Oo! Dairine's manual is learning, too!
  • Iago: Oh god is she going to make the planet a wizard
  • Mycroft: ...MAYBE
  • Iago: Goody.
  • Mycroft: By the way, you didn't say anything about the Doctor's cameo...
  • Iago: Oh, of *course* that was him. I was wondering why he felt familiar. Which incarnation was that supposed to be?
  • Mycroft: Five. He's Diane Duane's favorite.
  • Iago: Ahhhh. Makes sense why I didn't quite catch it, then. I've never seen a Five story, and I really know very little about him.
  • Iago: oh god it was a *birthing* room?
  • Iago: "Kit, I didn't do it for you 'some'. I did it for you 'pretty much'."
  • Iago: I FUCKING SHIP IT SO GODDAMN HARD RIGHT NOW.
  • Mycroft: YES GOOD JOIN US
  • Iago: IS THERE SOME KIND OF INITIATION CEREMONY OR AM I JUST IN
  • Iago: BECAUSE I WILL WRITE FANFIC IF NECESSARY.
  • Mycroft: FANFIC IS ALWAYS GOOD
  • Iago: Also, That Fucker just blew up a star to kill Kit and Nita. How rude.
  • Mycroftt: Are we calling the Lone Power That Fucker now because I totally approve
  • Iago: We totally can. I figured that capitalizing the first letters of any creative epithet I come up with would get the point across.
  • Mycroft: And it totally did.
  • Iago: Aw, Dairine's making friends with the circuit turtles!
  • Mycroft: With!
  • Iago: Is that its name?
  • Iago: Apparently not. Too bad, that would have been cute.
  • Iago: Gigo's nice, too, though
  • Iago: Mycroft I want a circuit turtle
  • Iago: Oh my god Dairine has just created a new race.
  • Mycroft: YUP
  • Iago: Good lord she *could* take over the world.
  • Mycroft: I would probably support this.
  • Iago: We wouldn't be able to stop her. We probably wouldn't *want* to stop her.
  • Iago: Oh dear god the circuit turtles are going to take over the Universe
  • Mycroft: I think it's more like... reprogramming
  • Iago: They're going to remake the whole damn thing!
  • Iago: I legitimately do not know what the Lone Asshat wants from this encounter.
  • Iago: Oh my god Dari has just used one of my favorite lines.
  • Iago: "You're so full of it that if you had eyes, they'd be brown."
  • Iago: Ah, mental contact. Solves everyone's problems
  • Iago: *flailing* Dari!
  • Iago: GODDAMMIT MYCROFT IF SHE HAS TO DIE TO SAVE THE UNIVERSE I QUIT LIFE
  • Iago: Nita and Kit showed up in the nick of time, and honest to god I was waiting for a, "Surprise, bitch."
  • Iago: "One might be intending to cripple or destroy that Power, but there was no need to be rude about it."
  • Iago: AND WHY NOT
  • Iago: RUDE IS FUN
  • Iago: WHY IS NITA USING HER LIFE FORCE EVERYONE KNOWS THAT'S THE WORST IDEA
  • Iago: PEACH
  • Iago: *incoherent shrieking*
  • Iago: MYCROFT I SWEAR TO GOD I WILL END YOU WHY DID YOU GET ME INTO A SERIES THAT HURTS SO MUCH
  • Iago: WAIT A SECOND HAS DAIRINE ACTUALLY BECOME GOD
  • Iago: SHE HAS SHE'S TOTALLY GOD
  • Iago: JEELSUS CRUST HOW
  • Iago: SHE CREATED A SPECIES AND NOW SHE'S ALMIGHTY WE MAY AS WELL JUST START WORSHIPPING HER
  • Iago: WAIT NO FUCK SHE CAN'T DIE SHE'S GOD
  • Iago: PICCHU. PICCHU IS BACK. IN A DIFFERENT FORM BUT FUCK I'LL TAKE IT.
  • Iago: THEY ARE ALL ALIVE
  • Iago: OH MY GOD NO ONE DIED
  • Iago: NO ONE ACTUALLY DIED HOLY SHIT
  • Iago: EXCUSE ME WHILE I ROLL AROUND ON THE GROUND, SCREAMING FOR JOY

anonymous asked:

are there any muslims in ilvermorny? also, how are muslim ilvermorny students supposed to get back from winter break because the american voldemort banned them? also, does madam picquery support muslim wizards/witches? (i know trump isn't president in 1926 and the ban wasn't made until 2017 but it's an important question at the back of my head)

There are Muslims in Ilvermorny, although they’re a small minority.

I’m a bit confused - what’s a voldemort? And why wouldn’t get Muslim students be able to go back home? This country is their home, too, right? And yes, ‘course she supports them! She’s their President too, isn’t she?

to previous anon: Stilinski isn't Polish. Styliński could be. But ehh TW and their research sometimes...

I must admit my knowledge of Polish surnames is severely lacking (although my sister-in-law is Polish). Might not be a stretch for the surname to be “americanized” a bit though over time? 

But like I said we don’t know if the Stilinski name is Polish - Jeff has only stated that Claudia was Polish and that Stiles’ real name is Polish, but what her surname was before she got married is never stated… but with the pattern of females choosing what surname to use, it’s an interesting thought. 

dancliffordegan  asked:

I just want to know why you think Jennifer Lawrence is a bad actor? Granted, she is terrible in the Hunger Games/Catching Fire, and I get that Jennifer Lawrence fans are fucking crazy. I would know I released a gifset of American Hustle before the movie came out and got death threats for not releasing the full movie. And I completely agree that she isn't as great as everyone acts like she is, but she's a decent actor and she shows it in movies like The Poker House.

I think Jennifer is an actress who’s gotten worse with each movie she’s been in. I thought she was great in Winter’s Bone. I told everyone I knew to go and see it because it was an indie and only out in limited release and had a female director. Being female and interested in screenwriting, that means something to me. I have seen Poker House and most of the films she did before Winter’s Bone, and thought she was good in those as well.

Then I saw Silver Linings Playbook and thought she was good, but not great. Definitely didn’t think she should have won the Oscar over the other nominees who gave better performances in their films, imo.

Then came American Hustle. That film I thought she was horrid in and it was a real shock to me. It made me realize after seeing the film twice that she is actually a very limited actress. I mean, she didn’t even care enough to tune the Long Island accent, you know? You have Christian Bale there with her, who she shared most of her key scenes with, and his accent is absolutely flawless. You can tell he’s worked his ass off getting it just right. And then you have JL, who continues to slip in and out of it like someone who could care less. It was distracting and awful and honestly made me embarrassed for her. The second time I saw it I was with a friend and she noticed it after a few of her scenes and brought it up to me in the theater, so I know I’m not nuts. It was happening AND was distracting.

She was completely miscast in the movie and way out of her league. But for some reason critics are so obsessed with her celebrity status and “personality” (if you want to call it that… I also think her public persona is an act and I find it strange) that they’ve given her all of these accolades for her performance in AH and it’s taken all of the attention away from the other actors in the film who deserve it more. Noteably Amy Adams, who played her part perfectly and didn’t have one misstep. JL also overacted the hell out of her scenes and seemed very aware of herself. It was a very ‘look at me guys, I’m acting’ type of performance and I really fucking hate it when actors do that. I didn’t feel like I was watching Rosalyn. I felt like I was watching Jennifer Lawrence play Rosalyn. So the character never rang true to me. She also had no chemistry whatsoever with Bale. Though, I did think she looked good with Jack Huston, which was pretty much the only saving grace I can think of re: her performance/scenes. But that might just be because I love Jack and think he’s a brilliant actor. He usually makes everyone around him better. 

Sorry if that sounds harsh, but I’m being honest, and that’s how I feel about her. Keep in mind, I didn’t mind her until I saw American Hustle. Now I just don’t think she’s that great of an actress. She’s limited at best and I find her annoying and immature in general.

I see! I am American. I am not aware of what sort of leaders the rest of the world has atm, but I know that Trump sucks. but the fact that society is so supportive of diversity now, i dont think that he will be able to do much evil. We dont need a politician to give us our rights... we can take them for ourselves now! I know that most people only saw that Hillary would have given us all equal rights... but shes also kinda deceptive? I hate trump, but im relieved that Hillary isn't our president.

do not read if you’re made easily anxious or worried

the right-wing, fascism, racism, etc, are rising throughout Europe, even here in the UK. society is not as supportive of diversity as we left-wing liberals like to believe. sure, in our own small circles of people, everyone we know loves diversity and hates fascism and racsim. but how do you think Trump got elected? racism. how did Brexit happen? racism. so many people are racist. so many people think certain ethnic and religious groups are sub-human. and it’s naive to think that politicians can’t do anything to affect people’s rights.

i’m saddened that you feel that way about Hillary. she’s not perfect at all, but she’s a fucking shining angel compared to Trump. Trump is doing things that Hitler did when he first gained power. his motto is ‘America First’ - a phrase commonly used by the KKK. 

and people are angry at Hillary because she sent some fucking emails. and it is the people who refused to vote for Hillary because she’s ‘kinda deceptive’ that have brought a nazi dictator into the white house.

Hogwarts: Currently school of big time magical big bang (percy jackson x kane chronicle x harry potter) Chapter 1

Summer was about to end, and it was the same summer that they kicked Gaia’s earthy butt back down into somewhere I really don’t know about. Probably having some sort of augment with Ouranos. I can imagine. But let’s put that aside. Right now we have another problem at hand.

Anyway, it has been a few weeks since their encounter of the Kanes, Leo’s return and many other interesting things.

‘Percy, Annabeth!’ Piper called the typical love birds as they sat by the Poseidon’s cabin. Both of them looked up to see Piper jogging towards them. ’ Chiron is calling for us, it’s kind of an emergency’

Both of them shared a look and the three of them quickly head towards the big house where a meeting is being held currently.

'I got them’ Piper announced as soon as they stepped through the door. Everyone looked up from the ping pong table and then turned their heads towards Chiron. The people who are currently present at the meeting includes, Leo, Calypso, Piper, Jason, Nico, Will and Rachel. Along with a huge Iris Message featuring Reyna, Frank and Hazel at camp Jupiter. Mr D sat silently with his diet coke reading an Ikea magazine. Since when was he interested in furnitures?

'What’s the trouble Chiron?’ Percy asked as soon as they gathered.

'We have received news from a…… friend’ Chiron announced. Percy felt trouble gripping his chest. He hated it when Chiron says that.

'Is it another Demigod issue?’ Jason asked, but Chiron simply chuckled and shook his head.

'I have received news from an old friend about a group of students that has been targeted in his school.. and he would need some help looking out for them’ Chiron said. Percy suppress the serious urge to groan really loudly, he had been looking forward to going college with Annabeth during the school term here in New York. Now it was about to be ruin by another stupid school trip.

Annabeth seems to have noticed Percy’s displeasure and held his hands. Honestly she is pretty alright with the idea.

'What kind of school?’ Piper asked.

Suddenly a grin spread across Chiron’s face. 'The school is located somewhere off coast of Britain and Scotland.’

'Why are we going to some countryside school?’ Leo asked.

'It’s not just a country side school, it is a school called Hogwarts’ Chiron explained. Now Percy resist the urge to snort at the name.

'Why a school that is associated to Pig Fungus?’ Percy snorted. Sadly he couldn’t resist the urge. Well, really no one could.

'It’s not just an ordinary school Percy.. you’ll see for yourself when you get there’ Chiron smirked. Percy immediately felt something is behind that smirk.

'Chiron shouldn’t we know about the school we’re going?’ Piper asked using her charmspeak. Chiron simply sighed as he place a leaflet on the table. Will toss a Snauge at the Leopard head while Nico toss a golden drachma into the IM which extended for a little while.

'Hogwarts school of Witchcraft and Wizardry’ Rachel read outloud for everyone to hear. Mr D was really bored as he pulled out another issue of FINE. An American wine magazine.

'You’re kidding right?’ Percy sigh a disbelief as his he raise his right eyebrow. Arms folded over his orange camp half blood shirt.

'Sadly he isn’t’ Reyna spoke from the IM. No growling from her dogs, no lies to be heard.

'Not everyone will be able to go there’ Calypso said as she looked up from the leaflet.

'Yes, you lot will be going as Exchange students for a whole year’ Chiron stated. 'You cannot afford to let them know that you’re a demigod’ Chiron turned to Calypso.

'I won’t be joining then’ Calypso stated. Leo turned to look at her slightly pained. Before he can talk Calypso cutted him off. ’ I will blow your cover too easily, besides our origin of magic doesn’t work well with theirs’

'please don’t tell me we had another bad war’ Percy groan, Jason simply patted Percy like I feel ya bro. They had pretty much enough of wars as of late.

'Nope, in fact it’s quite the opposite. It is more of an alliance. Back than, the demigods and Wizards were working close together. We are like schools with a partnership. But we severed the connection when the Romans and Greeks started to divide, it is to keep the wizards safe. The gods wiped their memories too, only one trusted wizard is deem fit to know about it. From than they will pass their knowledge to one whom they deem fit to know of our existence’ Chiron explained.

'So this friend of yours is deem fitted to know about our existence?’ Nico asked raising an eyebrow.

'More or less, he is the headmaster of Hogwarts currently. As the generation passed on, the knowledge got.. simplified.. now he only know that half godlings exist.’

'I see..’ Annabeth said as she started to think. 'But why would Calypso say that our magic won’t work with theirs?’

'It’s of different origin Annabeth’ Calypso explained. ’ Our powers are far more powerful than theirs. Like us, their magic runs in the blood but our has more of godly properties while theirs are just plain mortal with magical blood’

'In other words we would make better wizards?’ Frank suggested.

'I don’t see how our powers don’t mix’ Jason pointed out.

'In simple terms, we will make their spells or whatsoever look weak. Even a simple spell will lead to us doing more than it should’ Calypso said, everyone still had a pretty questionable look. ’ In even simpler terms, we are very destructive with their magic, especially with me as a Titan. I could destroy their school with a flick of a wand’

'I won’t be able to go, I have to look after the Romans. Both their Praetor can’t be away’ Reyna said. ’ Frank and Hazel will go and they should be joining you at camp half blood tomorrow’

'So in total there will be 10 of us? Rachel, Nico, Will, Jason ,Piper, Hazel, Frank, Annabeth, Leo and Me’ Percy concluded. Rachel seems really really excited as she could hardly contain her excitement. Bouncing up and down her seat.

'Very well, I will contact my friend and we shall make arrangements, more information will be given tomorrow. For now this meeting is over. Dismiss’ Chiron stated.

'Alright.. i’ll see you tomorrow Nico’ Hazel said.

'Alright.. see you then.. love you too’ Nico smiled. Hazel smiled in return as they wave off the Iris Message.

'Well.. it couldn’t hurt to have an experience at a new school’ Percy sighed. Obviously very displeased with the sudden change of plans.

'Hey.. it’ll be alright’ Annabeth said as she held onto Percy’s hand. ’ I’m sure we can work something out’ With that she lean up and peck his cheek as the group head out of the big house.

'Nico you coming?’ Will called out to the son of Hades who had been zoning out. Nico followed them out to the dinning pavilion where dinner was about to start. Time went by pretty fast. By then tomorrow has arrive.

Frank and Hazel arrived on horseback by noon. Everyone came by and greeted them as they landed. Hazel and Frank rode on Arion’s back. Nico came out of his Cabin to meet his sister whom he grown close to over the years.

Hazel tackle Nico into a hug which knocked Nico off his feet and they tumbled to the ground.

'Sorry..’ Hazel laughed as Nico wrapped his arms around his sister and laughed too. The both got up and dusted themselves as they helped with the bags. As soon as their bags were settled the gang decided to meet up, Chiron had handed some texts to Rachel.

They sat around Zeus cabin’s table during lunch as they scanned through the text about the school. The things that impressed them was the news article, Daily Prophet. An ancient British type of news paper that has moving pictures. Mainly they had Rachel, Frank and Hazel do the reading since most of them are dyslexic. Calypso wasn’t with them, she choose to help around camp and look after Festus.

'It says here that Sirius Black a serial Murderer had escaped from Azkaban. A special prison for wizard criminals. Apparently he killed 13 people in his life and was sentence there, he broke out 12 years later which is last year and is no where to be found as of now’ Rachel summarise as she looked up from the news paper, she laid the news paper flat against the table as everyone took a look at his face.

'He looks like that guy who acted as the commissioner in the Dark knight trilogy series ’ Will pointed out, Nico gave a little nod of agreement. Percy quickly lean over and inspect the picture, seeing how the boys were total nerds about them made the girls feels slightly more superior.

'Well sadly he isn’t’ Rachel added as she scanned another set of the odd news papers. 'Look at this’ She said as she place this above of the Sirius Black picture. The title read The Boy who lies.

'It says Harry Potter also known as the boy who lived has been spouting nonsense of The dark lords return since last year’s Tri-Wizard Tornament. As a result of Cedric Diggory who had been murdered during the event. No one has been able to identify the source of death as Harry James Potter states He who shall not be name had use a killing curse on poor Diggory. Minsitry of Magic councilmen Fudge has claimed that Harry Potter has been under the effects of GillyWeed after the underwater event nad has been hallucinating’ Rachel read out loud to the group. They exchanged looks with one another feeling slightly uncomfortable.

'The kind of people that we are going to mix with..’ Percy sigh and stabbed his fork into his blue sponge cake. Shoving it into his mouth and chew on them mercilessly, YESZ YOU DO NOT MESS WITH FOOD. Just kidding.

'I know.. and it has a whole other article about him and this Dumbledore guy.’ Rachel said. The stoll brothers came jogging up to them.

'Chiron asks to see you lot’ Travis Stoll said as they jogged off to do some other things. Probably stealing.

Moments later in the Big house around the ancient ping pong table.

'Good, all of you have arrived’ Chiron announced. Mr D was no where in sight, probably he is off drinking diet soda in the forest.

'So what news of the quest?’ Jason asked as they sat around the table.

'There has been change of plans, you will have to leave by tomorrow. Apparently, I have gotten the wrong date about the start of their school term’ Chiron announced. Chiron is hardly ever wrong, well someone has been a good friend.

'I have mix the holidays of this continent and theirs. Their summer will end by the end of this month and their school will start by the first of the next’ Chiron said.

'So it will be on September the First?’ Will asked.

'Yes, someone will picked you up by the evening and you will have to get the school supplies. There will be others who will be joining you too’ Chiron stated. Everyone looked around then outside to see the stoll brothers running from lou ellen. Probably they had prank her or something.

'No not them’ Chiron added, everyone gave a sigh of relief. Knowing the Stoll brothers are there, will surely blow their covers within one day. Just then Mr D walked in.

'Let me add on to something’ Mr D said looking around. ’ Hogwarts has been attracting dark energies as of late. Ever since last year.’

'The tournament’ Annabeth blurt out.

'Yes yes.. whatever weird things they had last year. Some of the creatures might be at work. It’s just a warning, do not let them know unless you don’t have a choice.’ Mr D said as he stood up and adjust his purple Hawaiian shirt and left. Could have guest who he went with.

'So now what?’ Percy asked.

'Get packing and tell your parents about this school quest’ Chiron smiled and everyone headed out to their respective cabins and got packing. Clothings, Toiletries, their weapons and god knows what else.

They had been told specific instructions to not bring any of their camping shirts, as to not raise suspicions. They had gathered after wards with their bags and stuff, placing them around the hearth. By then it was time for Dinner. People were already wishing them good luck and stuff seeing how it was their last week for the year. The next time they will be seeing each other would be by next year or Christmas who knows honestly??

'Funny how Chiron says it’s a quest while we didn’t receive any prophecy from our oracle.’ Piper mentioned as ate her sandwich.

'I don’t know but i’m excited!’ Rachel exclaimed bouncing up and down her seat. 'By the way thank you Piper’

'Sure no problem’ Piper replied, earning a few looks from the rest except Nico wh was currently busy with his sandwich. Correction sandwiches. 'Oh.. I had Coach Hedge to send a email to Rachel’s dad informing him about a school exchange program through my dad’s agent. In return we’ll look after her’

Everyone else nodded and continue with their dinner. Chiron had came up and inform them of the location where they are suppose to meet.

'You lot are going to meet them in New York, can’t afford to have them know about the camp. Argus is loading your bags in the vans as we speak, there you will meet with the others. Now hurry on and finish your dinner’ Chiron said and went off to his table.

'Who do think is following us to Hogwarts?’ Annabeth asked. Everybody shrugged as they continue their dinner and quickly head towards the van. Argus was already ready to drive when they arrived. He bowed with his eyes all looking at them. Calypso came up and handed Leo a bag of clothings that she made. She gave Leo a long kiss before saying their goodbyes. Leo on the other hand handed her a bracelet similar to the one he is wearing currently.

Everyone piled into the van and Argus took off. Totally ignoring the speed limit as they head towards New York City. Surprisingly no one wanted to puke during the trip.

'It’s happening!! We’re going!!’ Rachel exclaimed as she bounce up and down in her seat, totally acting like it’s her first time going overseas with her friends which she is. She could hardly contain her excitement as she literally rock the van.

'You think this could be better then high school here?’ Percy asked Annabeth who was leaning against Percy’s chest.

'Maybe.. who knows. After all magic sounds fun.. could be better then high school’ Annabeth agreed as she looked out the window at the city that never sleeps. The lights were illuminating every single building showing the structures of the tall skyscrapers. The night sky brilliantly lighted up by the brightness of the city.

'Maybe you’re right’ Percy agreed as he lean down and pecked Annabeth’s forehead. She smiled and continue to look out the window, enjoying the view of America before they head off to Britain.

Nico was staring out the window, twisting his skull ring. Will sat next to him watching the view from another window. Jason and Piper were cuddling at the back of the van. Overall the van was pretty quiet other than Leo tinkering with the small metal scraps he pulled from his magical tool belt.

In about 45 minutes later, Argus stopped the van next to the East River signalling that we have arrived now get your butts off my van. I’m pretty sure that was what he was thinking. We pile out of the Van and got our belongings in our hand. He shook each of our hands wishing us luck. With that he got back in and took off.

'So what do we do now? I don’t see anybody’ Piper asked around. No one seems to know until.

'Hullo~ Annabeth Chase’ came a girls voice. Annabeth recognize it immediately, she spin around to see the family Sadie Kane with her Brother Carther Kane and Zia Rashid.

'SADDIE!’ Annabeth cried and ran to hug her. 'What are you guys doing here?’

'The same as you, we’re just here to pick you guys up’ Saddie said hugging Annabeth back. The girls began to crowd around while the guys went ahead to meet with Carter .

'So where is your ride?’ Annabeth asked.

'It should be arriving any minute now’ Saddie responded, sure enough a boat revealed itself on the East River. Walt and Amos were on the boat waving for everyone.

'Come on aboard’ Amos greeted taking off his hat as he bow like a gentlemen towards the ladies. Shabti came popping out of the boat and helped the gang carry their belongings towards the boat. As soon as everyone was aboard, Amos waved for the trench coat to start the ship.

'Saddie, Zia this is Rachel’ Annabeth introduced. 'Rachel , Saddie, Zia’

They exchanged their greetings and Rachel just got even more excited. Running around the boat looking at how magic is actually working the boat as they sail into the Duat.

They appeared into the night of London, the Big Ben in sight and the London’s Eye. The city lighted up just as brilliant as New York city. Everyone except Sadie wowed since she had live in Britain for 6 years she pretty much must have been here.

'We left New York at 9.45pm it is currently 2.45am. 31 August’ Amos told us as we gather around him. The boat stopped itself at the dock as everyone got onto the pavement. Unknowingly the boat raise the water level around it’s area for everyone to get onto the pavement. Shabtis carried their bags and handed it over to them. Seems like everyone bought their weapons along. Zia had her staff and wands, Carter had his Khopesh and wand, Sadie like Zia but a few extra amulet, while Walt carried around tons of Amulet, a Khopesh, a staff and a wand. Carter carried his and toss them into the air, it disappear into the Duat. The other magicians did the same.

'Man I wish we can do that’ Jason complained, Percy nodded in agreement. The magicians simply laughed and offered to store their belongings in the Duat. Everyone agreed to it. Amos led them through the street of London till they stopped by a road, with stores and pubs line up on both sides. Most of the stores were close already, except for a few with some drunk people in them laughing. Another cafe was holding a party for some lady who just turned into a mother. Yay for her.

Amos walked them down until a man walked out of the shadows. Everyone stopped dead in their tracks. Percy and the Demigods were ready to draw their weapons when they saw the man.

'Sirius’ Amos greeted. The man with long shaggy brownish hair along with a matching brown mustache, in a red suit that looks kind of like what Amos was wearing.

'Amos Kane’ Sirius said. Both men looked at each other before they smiled and hugged each other.

'It’s been too long.. old friend’ Amos greeted as he turned to the group. 'This is Sirius Black, a wizard from the Order of Phoenix’

'The what?’ Percy questioned, still not planning to ease down.

'Order of Phoenix. We are an organization that fight against the dark lord’ Sirius explained. Then he gestured us towards the run down pub. ’ I’m afraid I can’t answer all your question tonight. You should head in and get some sleep, you lot will have to do some shopping in the morning’

'Why are we staying in a run down pub?’ Leo questioned. Sirius simply laughed and motioned the group forward. As they got closer the black sign began to gain coloring. Words painted with gold and a pot.

'The Leaky Cauldron’ Rachel read out loud for us. Since most of us are dyslexic. Sirius came up to the group.

'I hope you have money to pay’ Sirius said. Everyone suddenly looked pretty uneasy as they didn’t have any London currency to pay. The sound of coin jangling caught everyone’s attention. Nico held up a big black bag filled with coins, everyone was silent.

'Seems like you do’ Sirius nodded. 'Go in there and ask for Tom. Tell him this “ The Fat Lady ate the Honey Badger” and he should know what to do. Have a good rest, i’ll send two people to pick you up for shopping later in the morning. Nice to meet all of you Gentlemen and Ladies’ With that Sirius entered the dark and morph into a big black lab. Leo and Jason shot Frank a look and he mouth Don’t even bother. Surely they want to do some comparison.

Amos laughed and signalled us that he had to take his leave. He turn to Walt and Zia.

'Look after them, i’ll see you back at the house’ He stated and he headed straight for the boat. Percy turned to Walt and Zia.

'You guys are not coming?’ He asked sounding a little dissapointed.

'Nope, we’re just here to make sure you guys make it to Hogwarts. The both of us could blow your cover in Hogwarts, not worth the risk’ Walt said he paused as he scanned the surrounding. 'We better go in now’

Everyone entered the Leaking Cauldron. A few people in really odd attire were chatting away drinking beer. Nico didn’t waste any time as he walked straight up to the counter. A tall man with a button up shirt and a vest that hugged his body showing his slightly potted belly. A chain hanged outside his pocket, and it should be those kind of pocket watches.

'how may I help you young man?’ He smiled and eyed the group.

'We’re looking for Tom’ Nico stated quickly. The man smiled.

'You’re looking at him, how may I help you and your group of friends? Spending the night?’ Tom asked cleaning a cup.

'Yes we are Tom’ Nico replied as he looked at the group. How odd that none of the older ones are doing this. ’ By the way Tom. Did you know The Fat Lady ate the Honey Badger?’

Tom’s face showed no changes in expression but his posture and his eyes did. He stood straight up and eyed Nico, before breaking into a grin.

'Is that so? In any case please follow me’ Tom said as he walked towards the old dusty staircase at the corner of the room next to his bar. A few people gave us weary looks, but they didn’t say a thing.

Tom led them to a room located all the way at the top. He knocked on the door three times and stick a key into the key hole and twist, the sound of the lock unlocking itself as he turned the knob right then left then right again.

'Keeps the insects away’ he smiled as he walked into the room. It was big, 14 beds were laid ready. Windows that allowed you to view the outside world.

'Wow.. but the exterior isn’t all that big’ Annabeth breath, her jaws dropping.

'It’s a room charmed with the extension charmed my deary’ Tom laughed. ’ Breakfast will be ready to be serve up here, do send someone down with the orders and we will send it up. The menu is over there and some papers to write your orders. Toilets are located over there by the side of the room through that door. Enjoy your stay’

As soon as Tom left everyone began to pick out their beds. Naturally the girls chose one side while the guys picked the other. But of course there won’t be a fair split since there are 6 girls and 8 boys. Nico and Leo slept at the girls side since It is darker and away from the window.

The magicians got to work pulling out the belongings from the Duat. Nico just grabbed his toiletries and head straight into the toilet.

'What’s up with Nico lately?’ Jason asked Will.

'Don’t know, he doesn’t look like he had been sleeping well’ Will said.

'Really?’ Hazel asked suddenly alarmed at the fact her brother wasn’t sleeping well for the past few days.

'I think so.. he has been zoning out a lot’ Will replied as he pull his shirt off. Percy and Jason did so too and they climb onto bed, inspecting the softness.

'Is it always filled with super Hot guys at your camp?’ Sadie complained to Annabeth and Piper who simply laughed.

'Pretty much’ Piper replied. Nico walked out of the bath with a towel hang over his shoulder. His black shirt and some black long sweat pants. He head over to his bed and fall on it.

'Hey you okay man?’ Jason asked from his side of the bed.

'yea.. just a little tired that’s all’ Nico yawned. Hazel quickly went over to Nico’s side of the bed but he was already snoring away.

'I didn’t know he was that tired..’ Hazel said to herself. She pulled the sheets over her brother and watch him sleep for a few minutes. Sadie came over and place an ivory elephant next to Nico’s head.

'That should help him with the dreams.’ Sadie smiled to Hazel. Rachel was doing a quick sketch of the place on her drawing pad. Will walked over and looked at the sleeping son of hades. He sigh to himself and walked towards the bath room.

'What’s up with hunky over there?’ Sadie asked Hazel. Hazel shrugged in return. She has been at camp Jupiter for pretty much a long time so she doesn’t know about anything that is happening at camp half blood.

'Thank you for the elephant though’ Hazel said as she held onto Sadie’s hand.

'No problem, Walt brought enough for everyone’ Sadie announced. All heads turned to Walt as he open a small bag filled with mini ivory figures. 'ivory helps to keep the dreams away, that was how they helped someone with insomnia back in ancient Egypt’

'Some one has been doing their homework’ Carter snorted. Sadie gave him a glare.

'At least i’m not a full time nerd’ Sadie pouted as she walked over to her bed. Everyone else laughed a little as they got ready to sleep.

'By the way Hazel, any idea where Nico got the cash?’ Jason asked.

'Not sure, maybe Dad had given it to him just in case’ Hazel responded. ’ Or Nico knew that we needed the cash so he changed it early?’ Jason shrugged as he got ready to sleep.

It was really late and they would have to get up rather early in the morning to get their school supplies. That was pretty much how the first night went as the room fell into a comfortable silence of snoring and shuffling around in the bed.

Apologies for spelling and grammar error. It’s bad i know and it maybe boring. Sorry about it.

Hello Lady of the Manners! I am an African American goth of the Victorian Goth persuasion and I'm really nervous about using parasols in public. I'm scared people will think or say "why is she using a parasol? Her skin isn't pale so what's the point? That's dumb." I know you can't speak from experience but have any of your followers experienced this? What do you think?

  1. Don’t spend a moment worrying about what other people think. DON’T. Carry your parasol and be happy!
  2. IF someone is ridiculous enough to make a comment to you, smile coldly and say “Skin cancer can happen to anyone”.
  3. Enjoy your parasol. Remember, in times of trouble, you can consider waving it menacingly at people.

Hey I was just thinking about the argument the fandom has over who the Red Queen is. We know American McGee said in the first game that she was a reflection of Alice, a manifestation of Alice's survivors Guilt, so everyone thinks thats what she is in the second game too. But what if the Red Queen evolves according to what Alice is facing? Isn't it possible that she could represent survivors guilt in the first game and lizzie in the second since Lizzie is the center of everything that happened?

Mhmm. I wouldn’t know how to interpret these characters accurately since there are so many psychological factors behind. But also, remember that in the first game we have the Red Queen while in the second game the character that looks like Lizzie is The Queen of Hearts, which is not the same character.

But I totally agree with your vision about Lizzie representing something else. Alice has already been in Wonderland and her mind and perspective has changed for sure at this point. Besides, she BEATS the Queen in the first game so maybe she already overcame her guilts in some way…

What do you guys think?

anonymous asked:

About the Amandla/Kylie thing... Amandla said something to the effect of Kylie appropriating black culture but not speaking on racism. Could the same be said about Ethnic group appropriations? Like AAs wearing Nigerian head wraps but not talking about issues in west Africa or ppl wearing hair jewelry from Amazigh cultures but not acknowledging the issues that affect the people of North Africa? I know some of that stuff is ceremonial so isn't it just as offensive?

Black Americans wearing traditional African dress is in no way similar to what Kylie Jenner and the rest of the Kardashians do, I think that’s a shaky and petty comparison. For me though, the major issue isn’t just that she’s appropriating, it’s that she makes millions of dollars by appropriating and refuses to acknowledge or even engage with this idea. That, coupled with her position as a public figure, means that while I’m not expecting her to walk down the street chanting #blacklivesmatter (she will never care enough to be an actual ally), she’s old enough to at least know what she’s doing and stop deflecting or saying people are overreacting when they call her out.

in the finale, bree mentions that she remembers spilling ice cream in franks papers about fort Ticonderoga, so I couldn't stop thinking that maybe frank was keeping track or trying to find Jamie; because American history isn't his period or whatever. So, I was wondering if he maybe also found Claire and already knew she was going to go back. Any thoughts or am I just looking for meanings in some silly easter eggs for the book readers?

I thought it was just an easter egg for book fans, but it would kind of make sense if Frank did find Claire in the past as well as Jamie.

Because we know he found Jamie. But if he also found Claire, he’d know she was going to go back. And that kind of makes him slightly less of a dick for not telling her he had found Jamie. Because he knew she’d figure it out eventually and go back and find him.

It would also better explain why he trained Bree with guns and horses and stuff. In case Claire took her back too.

I’d totally be ok if the show went that route.

I think bisexuals (myself included) would just be happy to have an American hero like Sally Ride be like us, just like lesbians do. If she planned to be outed posthumously as a lesbian than that's fine and cool, i think people like to keep an open mind since its hard to know 100% who was what. This is only sort of related but whenever the 'vintage lesbians' posts go around im always like :/ because there isn't any way to know if they were lesbians or bisexuals then and people just assume...

but like sally ride isn’t a fictional character you can’t just be like “well the creators didnt confirm so i headcanon _______” she was a woman who sacrificed a huge part of who she is in order to become an astronaut. she lived her entire life in the closet so little girls could look up to her instead of all the male astronauts that came before her. i just think its crazy disrespectful to see her partner, her sister, and her obituary saying she was gay and then say “let’s keep an open mind though!”

i was still identifying as bi when i made that original text post and i was ecstatic because she was like me (in that she liked girls) but first and foremost i wanted to make it clear that she was gay because thats what she wanted to tell the world after she died
