i made a thing! (sort of)

Also, watching this episode made me realize how good the cast is at not taking anything personally. Like, if I were Liam, I’d have felt like he was consciously trying to kill my character the first time. I’d have known that was an irrational way to feel, but I’d still feel that way. Sort of like when you’re clearly the biggest threat, so everyone gangs up on you at once. You know it’s a totally reasonable thing to do, but you still might feel personally attacked. 

But Liam was cool about it even when it happened the second time. Like, the second time, if it were me, I would legit be wondering what I had done to make the DM angry. I wouldn’t even be reasoning with myself anymore. I would just feel like they hated me personally and wanted me to leave the game.

So, like, mad props to the whole cast for never taking anything personally.

how do i fight my fear of gyms? (and people watching me do stuff)

dude that is such a real thing for sure and as someone with an anxiety disorder I can say it took me years to get to a point where I’d willingly go to a gym. I usually try to go at times when I know there aren’t as many people, I joined a gym that’s big on no judgment (Planet Fitness, would recommend. Hella cheap and chill), and i made it a point to listen to podcasts or music every time I work out so I can sort of focus inward instead of on what’s around me. Also remember everyone in the gym is looking at and thinking about themselves, they are all there because they want to work on themselves and you being there is really not that important to them.


Realizing I was just an NPC in the lives of every person around me was such a great relief, would recommend that mindset.

i find it strange when people assert ted didn't have emotions. maybe they weren't the same as other people's or maybe they were "shallow" but he actually had really poor emotional control. the part in that story you just posted - how he went to take the plea but just couldn't *resist* going on an angry rant strikes a chord with me, although obviously i've never been in that kind of situation. but i have poor emotional control and do that same sort of thing, then realize i made a mistake.

in fact, i’ve noticed, in my opinion, a lot of his poor emotional control really describes a lot of the contradictions in his behaviour and things people think were some calculated, methodical thing on his part. people often get the same impression about me because one moment i’ll be highly calculated and rational and the next i’m an irrational, emotional mess. i think when ted experienced emotions he had absolutely no idea how to handle them.

I was thinkin about the devimega AU a bit sorta wondering what it could all be about and I made up my own interpretation of it heheh. I have my girlfriend weighing in on it too and it might see it through and write out a comic for it. Basically it starts with Oso “haunting” Kara just sort of popping up all the time and trying to tempt him cause he’s trying to get him on “his side”. Choro and Oso seem to know things that everyone else doesn’t. They’re at odds with each other and there is sorta this big kicker in the story that follows a theory my GF and I made up. I don’t really want to give it away until later heheh.

Despite that I wanna talk about it more…ahhhh….

The plot could generally get a bit complex cause all the bros are invovled and I want to focus on all of them little by little.

I even have a short rough of the start of it that I’ll post directly after and link to ^^

One Of Those Days

Today is one of those days where I sort of picked things at random and just hoped for the best - very little sleep will do that to you.

My big closet clean up made me think of the (very few) things I’d kept but not really worn till now. That would usually be reason enough to get rid of it and this jacket was one of those pieces. I don’t usually wear double-breasted jackets by themselves and this one has gold buttons and a chest patch pocket to boot! What really appeals to me is the flannel-like feel of the fabric which is perfect for a winter’s day like this one. Another thing I’m trying is a band collared shirt with a double breasted jacket - another thing I wouldn’t usually do although I’ve done it one or twice with a single-breasted tweed jacket. I saw Christian Kimber do this with great success. The shirt is flannel which again is great for the low temperatures. I’ve kept it all casual with the white jeans and the suede boots. All in all, another comfy fit.

It’s good to go out of your comfort zone once in awhile and try something new.  Maybe the outfit works, maybe it doesn’t - at the end of the day I can always change it if I want.

Jacket - Camoshita

Shirt - Uniqlo

Belt - Bexley

Jeans - Orslow 107 Ivy

Boots - Christian Kimber

Thomas I hope you're okay with all the current drama, I personally believe that you did nothing wrong at all. You're always making sure you're inclusive and doing the right thing, sorry your fandom's exploded :(

Hey!! Yeah, I’m doing fine!! Please don’t worry, these sorts of things happen sometimes and it gets very hard to address and handle all at once! I have made mistakes though, so please don’t feel like you have to defend all that I do, that’s not your responsibility, and I’ve been doing what I can to make sure things were addressed!

There was a piece of art of myself that was posted a while back that I put under a Read More and tagged nsfw because it was, and it was revealed later, after the artists’ bio was updated, that they were not of appropriate age, and that was a complete mistake on my part to make sure! I’ve always made a point to clarify, if people asked me, that if they were to do any nsfw art of me and submit it, that they should be of appropriate age to be doing so. My tumblr started as a personal blog and I thought tagging things appropriately would be enough, but this occurrence absolutely made me rethink how my blog was laid out and how much more consideration I needed to be putting into my blog and who was viewing it, so I made a public apology for it yesterday (in the #TSask) and decided to restructure my blog in order to make sure this never happens again. Posts I deemed too questionable, I have removed and if they ever go up again, they would be going up on a sideblog of some kind. I absolutely appreciate those who brought this up to me. I should have been the one to catch it, and I need to be far more vigilant about what I post from here on out!

There was also the post I responded to about why I felt it right to include asexuals and aromantics of any combination in the community. I’ve been having many really awesome and respectful conversations with people on both sides of this argument and its been really good, for me and I think for a lot of them, to gain understanding on where we’re both coming from. I am so grateful to those who came to me and got to discuss with me incredibly important things to remember and respect: the early struggles of the trans and gay community, the Stonewall Riots, the travesties and systemic oppression that still happen around the world today that need to be fought. We also got to discuss issues like arranged marriages that affect people on all areas of the spectrum. We talked about different demographics of the community and where they would like to stand or not stand. And the importance of limited resources made available to people of the community were discussed with me as well. I’ve been so absolutely grateful to those of you who came to me and are still coming to me to talk through these things, because I don’t claim to know everything, and many of the discussions were ended wonderfully respectfully. In the end, obviously, I have no, or maybe just really little, say in what defines the community. In what I say, I am absolutely making no attempt to prioritize people over another, because there are some extreme things that need to be fought. I can only be in control of myself and who I deem to be valid and who I would like to offer my support. I truly am trying to put myself in everyone’s shoes and see where they’re coming from. And I am so grateful so many of you came to me so respectfully to talk! That’s amazing! That, I think, is the most optimal form of discussion for people on both sides. I don’t like seeing anyone on either side attacking each other, and it’s so devastating to see so much of it. 

I truly hope this helps bring clarity for those of you who were confused or looking for an update! The internet can be a confusing place and the truth can be mangled, but I am doing everything I can to make sure I amend for any bad decisions and hear you all out as best as I can. I’m only human, and I truly do care about you and where you’re all coming from, so I hope you can all bear with me!

((I don’t know if this has been done, so if it has please tell me.))

So I’ve seen a lot of those ‘Humans are Space Orcs’ posts and I think those are really cool, but unnoticed they all consist of one thing: humans traveling with the aliens.

So there are a lot of ways you can do that, right? You could go all Star Trek and make it to where the humans and aliens all live together in harmony and travel space together and things like that. But I have a different idea and I think it’s pretty cool.

So humans don’t really know aliens exist. Obviously you have your conspiracy theorists and loons and the occasional 'abducted’ person, but for the most part it’s just generally accepted that aliens are fun and all, but they’re not /real/.

And then there’s this kid. He/she/they don’t really have a happy life, but they can’t really do anything about it. You can make them whatever you want, have any or of disorder or disability or just make them an angsty teen that comes from an unhappy home. They want to leave, but they’re too young, so they have to stay.

Then of course, the aliens come. But instead of crap like Independence Day (I say crap in a loving way, the movie was pretty good and I like it), the aliens just take one look at the kid, pick them up, and leave. That’s it. Nothing else. Just take the kid and go.

Of course the kid is terrified at first, but after like the first day or so they calm down because the aliens are treating them like gosh-darn royalty. They put the kid up in the nicest room on the ship, give them the best food they can muster from their rations, and provide for any kind of entertainment the kid might want. It’s like paradise, and the kid is happier than they’ve been in a while.

So the kid travels with these aliens on all sorts of cool adventures and throughout this period is when we get the 'Humans are Space Orcs’ discoveries. Like the kid will go up to random giant furry beasts and just glomp them and coo at them while the aliens are like “No that’s deadly it will kill you oh my god what is this kid doing?!?!” Or, if the kid has a uterus, come time for their period the aliens freak out because “Oh holy shmarda, the child is bleeding!! Why is the child bleeding?!” Hilarious antics and shenanigans ensue and the child is so happy with their new life that they never want to go back home.

Also included: drama when the aliens return to earth to find a human companion for the child (even though they didn’t ask for one you guys don’t have to do this really it’s fine) and the parents of the kid demand they be returned immediately. The kid doesn’t want to go back of course so the aliens have to fight for custody over the kid in court (I guess idk but something along those lines. Maybe the humans try to kill the aliens because the kid was “abducted” and that causes a lot of angst and problems.).

Idk just something that’s been floating about in my imagination for a while. I think it would be a really cool show though tbh like someone hire me.

Did you ever have a genuine psychic/medium experience?

Although many readings can be attributed to cold readings or sheer coincidence sometimes it’s uncanny how accurate psychics/mediums can be. Here’s a collection of supposedly genuine experiences from threads. If you have an experience feel free to tag me @sixpenceee!

I never believe in palm /card readings. I don’t actually believe in it nowadays. BUT when I was in 9th grade, my friend took me with her to a fortune teller so she can have her future read. Surprisingly she mentioned about her love dilemma, a blonde guy and dark haired guy. She was completely convinced about her reading powers while I was meh… We’re teenagers, it’s natural we’ll find ourselves in situations like this. And then she predicted the scores she’ll get at the exams when you finish high school (in our country there are some mandatory subjects for the exams, thus multiple numbers) she guessed that right. If I think really hard about probabilities and stuff I can find a logic explanation to that as well.

About 5 years ago I saw a psychic that a family friend had told me was the real deal. I went in skeptical and came out a believer.

She used tarot cards and knew things that could have been lucky guesses, like that I had just bought a house and was renovating it, but she also knew specific things that no one else could have known.

The most amazing part of the whole thing was that she knew that I had some complications with my hormones and had a surgery in the past that would make getting pregnant very difficult, but she told me Despite all this, I would have a baby later in life. Toward the end of the reading she hands me the tarot cards and tells me to shuffle them. Then tells me to ask three questions in my mind one at a time. I decided to really test her authenticity so the first question I decided to ask was am I going to have children, and halfway through laying the five cards down, she stops and looks at me and scolds me saying “I already told you that you were going to have one child!” hah this is when I knew.

This was before I was born. My mom had a neighbor who was a grandpa who could see the future. He told my mom that my sister would be really sick when she became a preteen and not to worry because she’d be okay. When my sister was a preteen she was diagnosed with cancer and after a year and a half she was perfectly fine. My mom was pregnant with me when she met him again and he told her that I would be a c-section baby. My mom already knew this and said she had scheduled the c-section already since I was breach but he was adamant that she would have me on a certain day and that the c-section wouldn’t go on the planned day. I was born on the exact day he predicted.

Nothing too crazy but the fact that he knew that my sister would be sick and would be okay is crazy to me. He also didn’t want any money and approached my mom and asked if he could do a reading for her.

Sigiling Selfies: How to Anti-Taglock Pictures of Yourself

So @dontusemycauldron mentioned this to me at some point, and it took a few days for it to really sink in. They told me how some people put sigils on their photos to prevent people from using them as taglocks for things like cursing. And I went, “well holy shit, that is fucking clever,” and proceeded to do it with every single one of my selfies I’ve posted to Tumblr. Not because I’m concerned, but I like to put faith in preventative measures. 

I decided I was going to show you guys how to do it - at least with SAI, because that’s the program I tend to use for art things now (and I can’t find a good crack of Photoshop anymore). However, any art or digital media program that makes use of layers and transparencies can be used for this technique.

First off, you want your sigils. I made two personal ones, and I also made two for Tumblr use. However, I’m going to recommend that you create your own sigils with your own statements of intent, if you can.

“This photo is bound from being used as a taglock.” 

“This photo is not successfully used as a taglock for cursing.”

Ideally, you want digital sigils with transparent backgrounds, so you can avoid as much visual disturbance to your picture - you don’t want people to see or know there is anything over top of it, right?

Anyway, now on to the (SAI) tutorial!

Open your selfie and your sigils; you can switch between them along the bottom of the SAI window. Copy and paste the sigils onto your picture. I do this by clicking on the sigil’s canvas, hitting Ctrl+A and then Ctrl+C, then selecting the canvas with the selfie and hitting Ctrl+V. I can show the screen commands, however, for those that aren’t so tech savvy:

The “paste” option is also in the “edit” menu, as you can see. When you’ve done that, your selfie should look something like this:

Well, you know, you won’t look like me…but your sigils will have pasted in the top left corner of your picture. And they’re very obviously visible. BUT fortunately we’re not done with it yet. 

Arrange your sigils over top of the face part of the selfie, however you want. I didn’t specify before, but the icon that looks like the cross with the arrows on each end (highlighted in blue here) :

…that’s the move tool; click on that, then on each separate layer, and you can move the layer around as you wish.) You definitely wanna do this before you change any of the transparency of the sigils, while you can still see them. Ultimately it doesn’t matter how you arrange them, just as long as they are on your face. Mine look like this:

It almost makes a heart shape, lol. So, those familar with SAI know where to look to see the layers. Mine were on the left-hand side by default, I know that is something you can change, however. They look like this:

On the bottom you can see the separate layers - your picture, and the sigils each on their own layer. Above that, you can see the “mode” and “opacity” tools. Those are the ones we care about.

Experiment with the mode if you want - it isn’t required, but it can help. I like to put mine on “overlay,” because it adds to the visualization of the sigils seeping into the picture and blending in to it. You need to click on each separate sigil layer to apply the mode. That makes it look like this:

And with that we’re almost done! Finally, just change each of the sigil layer’s opacity to 1% by clicking on the opacity bar and dragging it almost all the way down. You want them to not be at zero because they still need to be on the pictures and not “off,” but if you put them at any higher than 1%, you can still see them, and you definitely do not want people being able to see the sigils. Once you’re done that the selfie look like this:

Can you even tell there are sigils over top of that? There are. Four sigils, now, actually, lol. And this is how the layers look over on the side in SAI:

As you can see, the mode has been set to overlay on both, and they are both at 1% opacity. From there, save your picture (file, save as), feeling free to specify in the title that one has been magic’d. Then, you can upload them without any worry!

Of course, this can be done with sigils for other purposes - I just made this post with the intention of preventing selfies being used as taglocks, because that’s what I did to mine today. However, you can easily apply any sort of glamours to your selfies, if you desire. 

I hope this helps anyone, or inspires anyone! Let me know if you have any more questions, or if I wasn’t so clear about things! This is my first time making a tutorial for any art program, I dunno if I did any good… But, yeah, just let me know if you have more questions or anything! :)

seriously, i would pay money to find out which studio exec rejected joss whedon’s wonder woman script. because like, it’s bad, but it’s not as overtly bad as people are making it out to be. and the thing is, it’s the sort of bad that usually gets made. i cannot BELIEVE that a studio exec read that script, and then decided for whatever reason that they should turn down the chance to have joss whedon’s name on their superhero movie. it’s a fucking miracle, but i need to know what divine being did that and why.

Trans men: never feel like you can't pass because of your height.

Today at work, a middle aged man approached me, excited. When we made eye contact, he said “about time I run into another short man! I swear, all I see on tv are men 6 ft tall!”

We laughed about clothes for a bit and had a little chat before he went on to shop. This isn’t the first time this sort of thing has happened to me.

I’m about 4'10, 4'11ish. Not once has anyone asked me if I’m trans. Everyone assumes I’m cishet (which has it’s pros, and cons).

What I’m telling you is this: don’t let your height make you feel any less of a man. People will see you and treat you as a man regardless of your height. Hang in there, you can transition if you choose to. You can be stealth if you choose to. Your height won’t stop you.

(Ps: You don’t have to ever medically transition to be male. You say you’re male? Then you are. End of discussion 😊)

The First Time With Jeon Jungkook

Summary: This a series based on all of your first times with Jungkook from your childhood till when you both reach adult hood.

PART 1 PART 2 PART 3 PART 4 PART 5 /PART 6


THE FIRST TIME YOU KISSED

“You tell me Y/N, do you want this?” he brushes his thumb over your cheek “Do you want to kiss me?”

Before you could ever give your response to him, reality hits the shameless boy like a train. What was he thinking when he asked you such a question? His sudden tendency to take your feelings for granted by working his moves on you, wasn’t how he ever wanted it to be. He was curious and quite greedy about having the chance to win your first kiss. Was it still like a competition for him? Was he toying with you or was he being serious?

Jungkook was your best friend and his intentions were never ill to begin with. You knew from day one, when he held your hand and decided to be your friend back then in kindergarten, that he was anything but harmful. You were well aware of the fact that he could be trusted, and all these years of friendship proved that he was a keeper. Maybe you could trust him? But what would it change? Only jungkook had the answers and decisions to take in this very moment, yet he suddenly stepped away from you

What am I doing, right now? Jungkook would suddenly ask himself as he eyed your lips up-close for the first time in his life

My encounter with the sun god

Same group as Door Stealers and Tooth Enamel, and Teeth. I’ll just call our group the Emancipation Grid.

After spilling my guts on my tragic backstory on our way to rescue the elf queen’s soul from an infernal being, I ate a deepshroom to forget my troubles.

For those who are new to our antics or just need some clarification, a deepshroom is our version of an Amantia mushroom, and it’s a potent psychoactive drug. My character uses them to avoid disassociation. There’s a small chance that consuming one will let you talk to a random god.

Druid (me): I’m taking a shroom, (DM’s name).

(The DM rolls for effect)

DM: Oh, ok. (Rolls again for the god I’m getting, breaks down laughing)

Me: What?

DM: There was a 5% chance at talking to a god. There was ANOTHER 5% you’d get Solantres (our sun god, god of human creation, and chief of the pantheon). But you somehow managed to do it. So you eat the mushroom and your soul explodes out of your body and shoots into the sky. All anybody else sees is you collapse off of Ken. As you travel into outer space, you approach the sun, and see a spinning ball of silver magma, and shoot into it. You land face down onto a tile floor. When you look around, these things (points to some sort of angel thing that I can’t remember the name of) are drifting around, not really caring about you. There’s a large silver magma door to your right, and the magma flows upwards.

Me: Ok, well I’m super freaked out cause I don’t know where I am, but I collect myself and head to the door. I tentatively poke it.

DM: The door parts like a curtain, revealing an archway. Inside is a floor made of grass, about six inches tall. There are a few pools of water, and little cloud things drift about, occasionally drinking from the pools.

Me: Can I roll around in the grass and make grass angels, obviously being careful not to dig up any plants?

DM: Sure. You’re extremely happy and start laughing while you do this.

Rogue(ooc):Where the fuck is she?!

DM(ooc): In Herdracil’s garden. (In our world, Herdracil is the goddess of good, healing and death, and is rumored to be super scary. She and Solantres are married.)

DM: So after about five minutes of you making grass angels, you open your eyes and see an older, bald man standing above you, looking at you confused. He’s a high priest, and Solantres’s first saint, essentially.

Man: Who are you?

Me: I scream and start crying.

Man: Wait, no, don’t cry! This is a happy place!

DM: He does a couple of card tricks.

Me: I slowly stop crying.

Man: Thank you. What are you doing here, Elves go in a circle!

(In our world, elves essentially reincarnate forever instead of going to a heaven.)

Me, I’m still sniveling a little: I-I ate a mushroom, and I felt my s-soul explode, and I d-don’t know how to go back!

Man: Ah, deepshroom I presume? That means we have to go to Solantres and he can put your soul back into your body.

To make a long story short, I pet a 3 headed cat monster named Gizmo, and Solantres tentatively put my soul back into my body. He also prepared to blame my grass angels on Willis, the saint.

Top 10 One Tree Hill relationships (as voted by my followers) #8 - Brooke and Nathan

“The thing is, the two of us have been down very similar roads. I mean, we were in the same cliques first. We both felt the same pressures, same expectations. Our parents were like children, and we both grew into kind of bad versions of ourselves way too fast. So I think you know I get it. They never really gave us a chance, did they - our parents? They didn’t know how. Look, the thing is, you made your dream happen, all right? And even though I didn’t quite get there, when it was taken away from me,I dealt with it alone. That was stupid, selfish and wrong. So if your mom tries to take your dream away from you and you feel that same pain I did I’ve sort of been there, okay? I’m gonna be kind of pissed off if you don’t come talk to me about it. Anyway, thank you for coming today. It means a lot. I know you didn’t know Quentin but it doesn’t surprise me that you’re thinking about other people when all this stuff is going on with you. That’s not bad for a girl who never had a chance.”
