Okay so this is a bit more serious than my usual posts which are literally about memes and procrastination, but I thought it would be sorta nice to give each type a reason why they should stay alive. These sorts of things are important :)
INFP: there are so many books left for you to read
INFJ: you see things differently and the world needs people like that
INTP: live for that discovery you’ll make a decade from now
INTJ: you haven’t truly left your mark yet
ENFP: there are animals who need you
ENFJ: who will campaign for change without you?
ENTP: you’re gonna do something big, just wait
ENTJ: you are the one thing holding some groups/organisations together
ISTP: you haven’t visited every continent yet
ISTJ: the world needs your innovation
ISFP: there’s so many beautiful things you haven’t seen
ISFJ: trust me, your friends need you
ESFP: you brighten up the lives of everyone you meet
ESFJ: one day, you’ll be so in love that you’ll be glad you’re alive
ESTP: there are so many experiences left for you to feel
ESTJ: you may not know it, but people are relying on you
INTP: Dude, live a little. Stop hiding in your numbers and facts no one cares about. Also fewer details. But still, your brain is the coolest thing. Brainstorming with you is one of the most fun activities I can spend time doing. Who the heck cares if we didn’t end up making that Role Playing system, it was fun discussing theoretical mechanics of magic for 3 hours.
ENTP: Duuuuuuuude. You either SUCK as the looseriest looser of all losers or you are a ton of nerdy, chill, sociable fun. 10/10
ENTJ: Where are you? Probably somewhere more successful than me. From the one or two I’ve observed you look super cool and successful and put together. Well done gentlemen
INTJ: CALM DOWN. You don’t have to hide in a dark room just because there are people outside! Though, when you aren’t hiding from others, you are like, the best person to conquer the world with. Fun, Intelligent, and oh so delightfully logical.
INFP: Man you are fun. Like, there is not a single type that makes me giggle with silly glee more. Also, the only type to have a relationship with based on memes. Most excellent.
ENFP: Eww. Stop being so happy. The world is not great and people suck and just stop having so much optimism. Idk why I just have a hate for you. Nothing personal.
ISFJ: Ummmmm. You are nice and sweet? But pretty boring? So yay you? Also can be hella passive and manipulative, so boo you
ESFJ: Oh my god. Just stop. I don’t care if Timmy’s brother’s mom’s said that you were failing her. You aren’t and you are great and you try too hard for too many people. Super sweet but you try way to hard.
ESTJ: You are pretty sweet and GETTING STUFF DONE and it blows my mind but no to relax I would not like to chat about my goals and current objectives.
ISTJ: You are a human calendar/reminder/notebook thingies with one or two shy quirks. Please be happier and don’t freak out when people don’t write out lists for you.
ESFP: You are tons of goofy fun in short doses, then I just get angry with how stupid you are.
ESTP: Bruh. You are like the sexier more active version of me. I dig it.
ISFP: You have such a simple beautiful view of life. I’m not good at communicating in colors but it’s actually kinda nice even if I can’t rationalize it. Also, you like animals more than people so that’s.. yay?
ISTP: I wanna be you. You are cooler, sexier, smarter, everything that I have the potential to be but no drive for. Rock on Mr backflip genius doctor sexy man!
ENFJ: Honey… please calm down. It’s okay you aren’t dating anyone and it’s okay you aren’t making a difference. You are pouring yourself into like 20 people and super chill and high-class hipster.
INFJ: I just wanna keep you safe and let you do your silly change/save the world thing while I keep all the bad things away from you. You are too pure for the world.
Just literally any nurseydex fluff w ace Dex please and thanks 😙
I’m not sure if this has too many feelings for fluff, but I’m pretty happy with it. Hopefully you are, too Read it (and other Ace!Dex fics) here on AO3!
When Dex opened the door to his and Nursey’s room, he stopped with one foot through the threshold. It was not how he left it that morning. It was… well, it was clean. It wasn’t that their room was usually messy, but it was never clean unless Dex was the one who cleaned it.
That morning, before he left for his first class, there had been a pile of sweaters and cardigans on Nursey’s bed; he was looking for his favorite, which had somehow ended up at the bottom of the drawer (again). There were also snack wrappers littering the floor from their marathon the night before, and the growing collection of empty coffee mugs that never made it back down to the kitchen was threatening to tumble over the edge of Nursey’s desk.
All of that was gone now. On top of that, the bookshelf that was usually overflowing with Nursey’s frankly ridiculous collection of books had been straightened out and it looked like the beds had been made (not well, but they weren’t the usual nest, at least). Dex could even smell a weird mix of off brand Fabreze and Bitty’s “Sweet Home Georgia” candles.
He couldn’t see Nursey anywhere, but there was a familiar off-key humming in the bathroom. Nursey never cleaned the bathroom. Neither did Chowder. Dex was the only one who ever did (and frankly, he was okay with that because he knew that he was doing a thorough job of it).
He had no clue what was going on, but something had to be. He wanted to believe it was innocent, but that horrible, destructive part of his brain said that it was bad and wrong. It was an apology, that Nursey was breaking up with Dex, that he couldn’t deal with no sex, that he was cheating, that, that, that.
Except Dex knew better than to let himself get lost in intrusive thoughts. He trusted Nursey, and he trusted that Nursey would come to him if he had a problem. And, even if that wasn’t the case, they already had the Polyamory Talk, and Nursey knew that if he needed more than Dex could give him, sexually, then they could discuss Nursey going outside of the relationships for those needs. They were good. They were solid.
But he still had no clue why Nursey was cleaning, so he dropped his bookbag, leaned against his desk, and waited. He was impatient, but thankfully only had to wait through a song and a half before his boyfriend finished whatever he was doing in the bathroom.
Why do people think it’s okay to just leave animals? I don’t mean like take them to a rescue or even leave them on the doorstep of the pound. I mean literally move out and just leave tons of animals behind. They don’t tell anyone. They just leave them. To starve or dehydrate. I hear this about dogs, cats, reptiles, various other animals like fish and birds. I hear about waaaaaaay more than I should.
Requested by @justcallmecinammon:
May I have a Loki x reader oneshot with an AU where Loki and Thor are on good terms and he takes Loki with him to visit reader to figure out something difficult for their mission. Her and Thor are good friends and when she meets Loki she’s sweet and openly invites him in. Thor warns Loki beforehand not to mess with her because it’s definitely best not to make her angry, but Loki’s like “I do what I want” and when he does he regrets it. Then afterwards he’s like “… sorry” and she’s okay with him and he falls for her. He learns she loves geckos and snakes and frogs. With a funny and fluffy ending plez? Reader is short and loves Hamilton the Musical. (This sounds like the most random shit ever and I apologize XD I’m getting over a bad cold and I think it went to my brain.) you can decide how he upset her and whether or not she gets quiet when angry or the opposite lol
Here you are, lovely!! I apologize for taking so long. I do not own Loki, Thor, Steve or Tony. They belong to Marvel.
Warnings: slight angst, fluff, mentions of snakes and other reptiles and it’s a bit long (apparently I can’t write a Loki fic less than 1,000 words!)
Pairings: Loki x fem!reader, Thor, Steve Rogers, Tony Stark
we need you to convince her to help us,” Steve told the Asgardian, who
agreed. “We shall need her assistance in this endeavor.” Steve smiled
and clapped Thor on the back while Loki simply stood by in confusion. There was
a mission coming up and apparently, the Avengers needed your help. "Whose assistance do we require?“ Thor turned to his brother with a bright grin.
“We require the help of Lady Y/N.”
Ye, but what makes me feel sad is that people are getting more interested in doing these memes. I saw a meme called desert, it was fully animated but really repetitive and i just saw a few people doing this one, now another person did a meme with the same song BUT WITH ONLY 3 FRAMES. So what happened? Everyone did the 3 frames one.
People just want to have fun - and since I had the “laziness” experience I can tell you it’s normal and okay to not wanting to draw more than 3 frames, most animation memers are just starting to get into animation, and if they actually like it you’ll see that one day they’ll start putting much more effort into their videos
Seeing how he’s sort of “artsy” and pretty f-ing judgemental, he will want to see the videos on “this Bob Ross person”
When he watches the first video, he’ll just be staring intensely as if he didn’t trust the man and silently mumble things like “Why does he talk about nature so much?”
“What the hell does he mean by where does the mountain live?!”
Despite judging many of the things in the video, he won’t admit to actually liking the things that are going on
Eventually you convince him to paint along and he’d surprisingly be pretty good at it, so he gets all hyped and immediately messes up
Penniboi is now mad and breaks the canvas
You have to calm him down before your screen is next and right when his claws are about to touch it, he stops when Bob Ross says something like “Lets build a happy little cloud. Lets build some happy little trees.”
He stopped because he “has to keep on watching to continue judging this foolish human”
In reality, the things Bob Ross says make him feel a little happy and inspired on the inside
His favorite quotes are “There’s nothing wrong with having a tree as a friend.” and “I guess I’m a little weird. I like to talk to trees and animals. That’s okay though; I have more fun than most people.” because he can relate
If he has a TV in his lair, you’ll have to sneak into it to see him secretly watching some videos and practicing his painting skills
When you’re walking alone in the woods you might find a tree or two with small little paintings
Sometimes, you’ll wake up to a miniature painting of a balloon or a certain somebody’s favorite tree on your arm, possibly your back
why i think a certain anime is overhyped, and ultimately a disappointment
i’m very hesitant to post my opinions, and I’m not sure if people will take this criticism well.
disclaimer: i’m kind of sick, so it might affect the writing in this.bear with me.
let me start off by saying i am queer. i’m a pansexual nb person and i value representation in the media i consume more than many things in this world. i want to feel validated by the things i watch.
when people told me to watch Yuri on Ice because it had “canon gays” or whatever the kids like to call it, I had great expectations. Another sports anime I can enjoy, probably, even though sport animes aren’t really my thing, and the only one I’ve watched was Free!…Aside from that, I had watched series like No. 6, Nabari No Ou and Samurai Flamenco that surpassed my expectations, and ended up being good series.
Yuri on Ice is…okay. But it’s not the ~* groundbreaking anime of the century*~ everyone is making it to be, and I’m fairly certain the only reason people say that it is because it features a same sex couple.
It didn’t become the engaging anime I thought it would be. I’m pretty sure the series was also written by a fujoshi, and it’s not actual LGBT rep when it’s literally another form of BL bein sold to the public and passable as representation. just because it’s not junjou romantica doesn’t mean it’s not baiting the female population to fetishize m/m relationships (and well, as it turns out, most of the fanbase is female)
Certainly, it did have it’s good points. Some side characters are downright lovable. Yuri and Victor are shown to be so blatantly into each other by the end of the series, it’s hard to prove that they’re not into each other. I’m grateful for that.
However…what I value in a series is good, consistent writing, and this series definitely fell short of that. No. 6, for example, was a Sci-Fi series that had a romantic subplot between 2 of the male leads as a focal point of it. It was successful in weaving the two narratives together because we got to see the plot progress through the lense of their relationship, if that makes any sense.
1.) weak plot and character development
this series’ goal was supposed to be about sports and a romance between two boys. both narratives fell through because the writers could not properly mesh together these two themes. a good story incorporates these things together solidly through a main theme in a way that the viewer can understand the progression of the plot and the characters in a consistent manner. literally what everyone is working towards is ice skating competitions. that’s the only thing driving the plot forward! yuuri and victor’s romance was something developed separate of ice skating, and while I saw the attempts at connecting their romance through ice skating, it fell through because their characterization was virtually nonexistent and it made it uninteresting to watch.
2.) where was the individual characterization ?
Yuuri wasn’t confident, and he was fat and a mess at the beginning of the series - that much the show made clear to me. i didn’t really like the attack on body image but I took the message for what it was. I figured it’d be some sort of Zero to Hero thing (but I was wrong. By Episode 6 Yuuri had already hit his Hero phase)
So…by the end of episode 2, he wanted to get back into ice skating because of Victor. I barely got to know of Yuri as person before the series took off when Victor showed up. I didn’t know who Victor was at all. I didn’t have an attachment to either of the characters. And as soon as they met, they threw baity romantic tropes at me to establish a connection between them.
I didn’t feel anything but a little confusion, and as they kept going with the series, I felt literally nothing. I read a similar criticism from someone else on tumblr in that these two were just pretty cardboard cutout characters that looked good together, and literally EXISTED to look good together.
2.) the only thing interesting about Victor and Yuri’s characters was their relationship with each other
There was virtually no build that attracted me to these two as a pairing.
We never got a proper platform to develop Yuri and Victor as characters so that we could see their individual purpose and identities, and thus experience their character development as the series went on.
When your characters completely revolve around their relationships with each other and literally nothing else, it makes it uninteresting (unless you’re sold on their relationship, of course).
Yuuri’s archetype is supposedly to be the hardworking protagonist, but it falls flat and disappears as the anime progresses, because once he teams up with Victor, this protagonist-coach duo literally becomes the only thing central to their side of the anime. Both he and Victor became unsympathetic characters in comparison to Yuri, who still had his flaws and still had his work cut out for him. We had seen him train a lot more than Yuuri in comparison, and around episode 6, Yuuri’s role as a foil character to Yuri also falls through.
Yuuri and Victor’s flaws are also only ever barely grazed over, but never entirely addressed. they are not as compelling of characters as Yuri, who had his flaws out there for everyone to see since the first episode.
this anime turned into a Cinderella story typical of the shoujo genre - Yuri being the plain person blossoming into a beautiful flower with the help of Victor, the handsome seductive prince, noticing him. It’s not very compelling to me and if I didn’t want to see it in a hetero romance, why would I want to see it depicted in a m/m romance?
3.) Did it make no one else uncomfortable that Victor fell in love with Yuri while he was drunk? Like…anyone? hello? Victor’s static, unchanging ambiguous character is confusing and flat as a board and doesn’t make me feel like any of this is romantic. So he ended up choosing to coach Yuuri out of impulse and dropped everything….for some drunk dude who hit on him? a groundbreaking romance, i guess.
4.) Yuri Plisetsky was the only thing motivating me to finish this series. No, I haven’t finished it yet but that’s because it’s kind of hard to watch without gettin bored? But unlike Yuuri and Victor, Yuri had time to exist separately as his own character with his own motivations. He also clearly had his own personal issues that allowed for potential character development - I wanted to see him learn, and I wanted to see him win something. As opposed to Yuuri and Victor, whose only motivations seemed to be each other.
5.) the fandom itself is a little unbearable. granted a lot of them are younger than me, and I cannot refuse them the right to consume and enjoy media when they probably haven’t had the same experiences i have had.
however! the fandom is literally eating everything without critically thinking and that shows a massive difference in how I personally consume media. the overwhelming amount of fujoshi culture i also see in response to this series is uncomfortable but i probably should have expected it. i’ve seen the fandom go so far as to endorse the purchasing of YOI merchandise so that we could tell Japan that we love the gays!!! when they don’t actually realize that’s not helping the LGBT community at all over there
Yuri on Ice, to me, was like a fan fiction with open ended threads and plot devices that were sort of made up as it went along. It had potential at the beginning, but fell through once the middle of the series hit. It also had plenty of fanservice with little substance…like a porn without plot, essentially, lmao.
some of the characters are really cute. yuuri and victor are aesthetically pleasing and i’m grateful that there is an anime showing a healthier depiction of a m/m, despite it still pandering to the female crowd in doing so.
the last point i’ll make is that the canonization of a gay pairing when the gay pairing is one of the series’ selling points, btw, isn’t exactly revolutionary. without good, solid writing, the claim is a false one.
What do you mean by "expecting vegans to make cultural exceptions to overarching moral beliefs?" I have read multiple stories of white vegans being shitty to sustenance-hunting or farming people of color. I also agree more with those who want to make animal-husbandry more sustainable than extremist vegans.
I mean that, if someone finds it morally objectionable to kill animals, there’s no reason they should be expected to make exceptions based on culture, especially when there are currently indigenous vegans of many ethnicities also working toward veganism within their own cultures. Like, I oppose child abuse and someone saying, “Oh don’t worry it’s my culture” is not going to make me believe it’s okay for them to abuse children.
I think vegans who seem DISPROPORTIONATELY hung up on people of color consuming animal products are obviously working with some racism there, especially because a lot of indigenous cultures especially focus a lot on hunting which is far less environmentally damaging than factory farming. But a vegan not saying “Oh I think murder is okay when YOU do it because culture” is different and a sign of a moral backbone, especially since not all vegans who think killing animals is bad are white, and if anything I think, “Oh these brown people are just too stupid to understand how bad they are being because of their backwards culture” reeks of condescension and racism. Hope this is clearer.
Okay, so, which of class A are cat people, which ones are dog people, and which ones like really obscure animals? Because I feel like Momo would be a horse person. BONUS; Who has the rarest fav animal?
According to the survey, dog people tend to be more extraverted, agreeable, and conscientious than cat people. Meanwhile, cat people tend to be more neurotic and open than dog people.
Dog people tend to be more energetic, faithful, and easier to get along with.
Cat people tend to be curious, unconventional, and prone to worrying.
This is a hard question to answer. A lot of characters have personality traits of both. If I’m on the fence about a character, I’ll just make them a dog person since according to the survey mentioned above, there are more dog people than cat people.
Ummm…..I don’t know how to tell if a character would be into rare animals. I can’t find a psychological or scientific study on that. What kind of characters would be into rare animals? Probably unique characters, I guess? But who would be considered unique? Who has the more unique personality?
I guess Aoyama Yuuga would have the rarest most favorite animal because he’d like a dazzling, rare animal that stands out among the rest.
You’re right, Momo does seem like a horse person. She probably owns a pet horse too considering she’s a rich girl.
why is aged up m//a//x//v//i//d bad? i mean i totally get the hatred of it in general, and not having in it dadvid appreciation week, and i can't see it happening at all but... i'm confused? Please dont block me, this is an honest question.
I realize it’s a little confusing as to why that might not be okay, but honestly, it all comes down to morality and also the whole idea of them being in a ‘’’’romantic’’’’ (nothing romantic about that ship but you get the idea)
relationship at all.
Yes, the age of consent exists (and there’s a ton of problems with the concept as a whole but it’s not the time to go into that), and once someone turns eighteen, there is legally nothing wrong with them having sex or relationships with people older than them. But that’s the thing. There’s nothing wrong LEGALLY. But emotionally, that person is still not completely an adult. You don’t become an adult emotionally until maybe your mid-twenties. And honestly, entering a relationship with someone MUCH older than you when you JUST hit adulthood is…very creepy and probably unhealthy. Why can’t that person get a relationship with someone their own age instead of going after someone who JUST hit adulthood and is now trying to put their life together? There’s all kinds of factors towards this that makes the relationship still really unhealthy overall.
Now let’s apply that to David and Max and a…relationship they would have (a very creepy one, but that should go without saying). Max turns eighteen. David would be thirty-two at that point. David would be in his THIRTIES and dating an eighteen year old. Max has BARELY become an adult and would be dating a man who has been an adult for a long time. It’s not illegal, but it’s all kinds of uncomfortable and morally….icky. I am the same age as David and I wouldn’t DARE date someone that much younger than me. It’s not ILLEGAL, but sometimes laws don’t mean shit when it comes to morality and what should be considered okay or not okay. (Also another example to make things a little clearer: it’s not illegal to fuck certain animals in some US states but that doesn’t mean it’s morally okay to…you know…FUCK ANIMALS.)
Now, people are probably like ‘well, what if Max was in his twenties then?’ Because honestly in real life, people in their twenties can and would probably be a lot more emotionally mature and therefore on the same emotional level as someone older than them. Or say, the two of them being kids together and being shipped that way. But at that point, there’s another problem to the ship and that’s the idea that they NEED to be in a romantic relationship at all.
Why are you (I say you but like…I mean the royal you) trying to ship two people who had a well-written and still-developing mentor/mentee and/or father/son relationship in canon? Why does it have to be romantic at all? Aging them up or making them both kids is definitely not as icky but given their canon interactions, why are you that desperate to stick them in a romantic relationship? Platonic and familial love is not lesser than romantic love and I don’t think a lot of shippers realize that. A father/son relationship (especially one as good as the one they’ve been giving us in canon) is just as important as some shitty romantic ship between those two that doesn’t need to exist. In fact, it SHOULDN’T exist. There is NO REASON FOR IT, unless you value the idea of ‘’’’’romantic’’’ love over platonic love or get off to the idea of any two guys being ‘in yaoiz!!!!111!’, no matter how unhealthy or immoral the ship is. Or you’re some creep who likes the idea of adults fucking kids.
(Again, I’m speaking to people in general, not just anon).
