i might have to re do this

just because you meant it as a joke doesn’t mean you didn’t do something wrong. i teach preschool and i can’t believe six year olds understand this concept better than adults. if you say something hurtful, you’re the bully, not the person who gets upset. it might feel icky to realize that you do have bigoted beliefs; but when you blow off apologizing with “people who know me know i don’t mean it,” you’re not helping the people you hurt and you’re not changing the way it sounded. why in the heck is it so hard for grown people to just admit they were wrong and apologize for it.

freedom of speech isn’t freedom from consequence and i’ll say it until my blood runs dry. hate speech is also not covered under the first amendment. and again, a concept preschoolers understand: your words are not more important than the safety or comfort of another person. 

yes. legally i can’t stop you from printing and screaming whatever you want. but legally you can’t stop me from being angry and responding to it. and if you expect others to just “not get offended” by what you say, you must also expect others not to take you seriously at all! listen. if you understand i can send a child into the hallway for calling another child names, you can wrap your head around the fact you don’t have the right to do and say whatever you want without somebody reacting. this isnt your world, it’s all of ours, and we’re allowed to ask you to leave the classroom. grow up, realize you actually might have done something bigoted - even by “accident” - and change yourself for the better.

and if you’re the type who just throws a hissy fit every time somebody points out you’re being a bully… congratulations. you’re acting like a four-year-old.

My manager has recently been having old employees "volunteer" to help. Like not get paid. But work. Two employees from an old location did two "volunteer" shifts and now current employees (2) have each done a "voluntold" shift. They were told to come in not in uniform and work. I do payroll. I know they aren't getting paid. I'm so mad but I'm also terrified of rocking the boat and calling corporate. He's been our manager for a month basically, and I don't want to get fired.

You’re going to have to report it because you might be fired if corporate finds out themselves. It’s illegal not to pay someone wages for working. Since you’re doing payroll you have knowledge of it going on so would be an accessory. I’m pretty sure some big name fast food chains are being sued for unpaid wages right now or were recently. Corporate probably would rather pay those wages than a lawsuit settlement. -Abby

These might just be post cycling endorphins talking but I sure do love you guys.

While we’re feeling the love, however, a heads up that I will be out of town and away from my work pc starting next Tuesday. So I will post a page on Monday, then have to take a hiatus until March 10, which is a Friday. I don’t like taking mid-chapter hiatuses, anyone who’s been reading for a while knows this, but this trip’s timing isn’t friendly. My apologies :(

I will also be taking a trip to DC in August for Otakon. Which is a pretty big deal for me! It’ll be my first time tabling at an out-of-state convention. So if you are in the area and want to throw a fish at me, I will be in the vendor’s room at Otakon with some ho who sells pastry cat plushes, idk :3 And I should - barring death or dismemberment - have volume 3 and restocked volume 1 for sale. Becaaaaause…

Volume 3 Kickstarter is slated to go live the second half of April. I MIGHT have to skip an update between now and then to get the video done, but it’s gonna happen. It is! Rawr!

And I think that’s all the news that’s fit to print! Thanks, everyone <3

A regular day out.

This one is for @bootymebetter​, kinda based on the idea you sent:

“I have an idea for fluff? Maybe you could like do something where all the avengers people and stuff have movie nights or are generally just good friends and mess each other around a lot. Like, you could even write something like a day in the life of a normal avenger xD or even write what they think or dream a normal day for them is like i.e. ice cream on the beach with their friends or out for schwarma and beer and jollyness xD “

I really liked the idea of the Avengers trying to have a regular day, and how their idea of regular might be a little different to everyone else’s. Thank you for such an awesome idea!


A regular day out. That’s the plan, just a normal day. No mission today, no training, no need to be superheroes. We’re going to be just regular guys ‘n’ gals, doing regular stuff, like regular people. Brunch, a trip out, a walk in the park. Regular.

So, we start the day off with brunch. That’s a thing now, apparently. Back in the ‘30s, if you got up late on a Sunday, you skipped breakfast and went straight to church to atone for your tardiness. Now, you get up late, they got a special meal just for you. Howard shoulda put that into his Expo!

So, it’s me, and Buck, Sam and Nat, we’re sitting in this café eating eggs and croissants and bacon, drinking coffee, talking. It’s nice. Regular. We’re talking about sports and weather and politics and movies. Sam’s laughing at how little me and Buck know, what with being 70 years out of time; Nat’s making the usual jokes about films we haven’t seen, then Sam’s explaining them, which makes Nat roll her eyes. It’s nice. I’m sitting by the window and the sun’s shining on me, got my legs stretched out, one arm across the back of Buck’s chair, the other’s holding a steaming cup of coffee. The sky’s blue, the birds are flying past, the people outside are… the people are running. And screaming.

I'll take the blame for this one. I'm doing poorly at work, I keep forgetting simple things. I know it's not fair to my coworkers. I recently found out my grandpa keeps seeing cancer drs. My anxiety and depression are acting up due to the worry. I'm going to talk to my GM tomorrow about the situation and how I might have to take time off if things get worse. I'm hoping she'll be understanding. I'm hoping no one will be upset I'm doing this even though we're short staffed.

It's my birthday today on the 24th so how do you think Arkos celebrate their bdays before and after meeting each other?

Happy Birthday my friend! In celebration of the anniversary of your escape form the womb, have some Arkos birthday headcanons!
sorry if they’re jumbly, it’s late but i wanted to finish this

  • Despite celebrating 8 birthdays a year, Jaune’s family always made a big deal out of them, with Mama Arc’s special home made birthday cakes
  • On the contrary, Pyrrha’s birthday was never made into a big deal because she never had time to celebrate it, in her busy schedule
  • JNR nearly misses her birthday entirely, as it wasn’t brought up until just a few weeks before
  • They take it upon themselves to plan her the best birthday ever
  • This may or may not have resulted in them all skipping class that day (much to Pyrrha’s dismay) and spending it together in Vale
  • God bless Weiss Schnee and her wonderfully written notes from that day
  • Now what I want you to imagine right now, they’re walking down the street together and in one of the windows, Pyrrha sees a gorgeous piece of jewelry. So of course, Jaune, being the wonderfully caring friend he is offers to buy it for her. And this thing is expensive as shit, but it’s her birthday, and she’s really special and important to him, and as much as she would love it, she insists he doesn’t need to, but he does anyway and she just nearly just fuckin’ cries in the store, because no one has done anything this nice for her ever really, so she’s just so happy and appreciative of him.
  • In general, both of their birthdays include sleeping in
  • Pyrrha lets him skip their morning runs for an extra hour or two of sleep
  • Jaune doesn’t let her leave the bed, and they just cuddle until noon
  • Breakfast in bed also happens some years
  • It doesn’t matter if it ruins their date night schedule, there has to be a date night on birthdays
  • These range anywhere from fancy candle lit dinners, or picnics on the rooftop
  • Although, one year Jaune ended up sick on his birthday, so they stayed in all day and watched X-Ray and Vav while cuddling on the couch together and ate pizza. (The perfect date if you asked me)

What do you usually do on Friday nights?

Stiles: When I’m not working we usually watch a movie or TV show and cuddle.
Derek: It’s my night to pick the movie.
Stiles: So we’re watching a foreign film. You shouldn’t have to read a movie.
Derek: You picked Avengers two weeks in a row, you’ll live.
Stiles: Even Buttercup is bored.
Derek: The cat doesn’t care what movie we watch. 
Stiles: She might….
Buttercup rolls onto her back and bats Derek’s hand with her front paws.

Any advice on trying to lose weight?

There’s no better approach to losing weight than eating healthy and working out. I know it sounds really basic and cliche, but most of the diets you’re going to find online are rubbish. Also, losing weight takes time, so don’t go trying to lose it all in one week by starving yourself because all that’s going to do is make you gain it all back and then some. I find it helpful to have more than one reason to lose weight, no matter how vain or shallow they might be. If thinking about how many dates you’re going to get once you’re thin helps you lose weight then go ahead. If picturing yourself wearing the tightest clothes or the sluttiest outfit when you’re out and about helps you lose weight then that’s perfectly fine.

“Well you said you’d never been to Uptown much and this is by far the best view in the city, and this place have the best drinks as well.” Akira said.
“This might sound silly but I’m a little nervous.” Ellis said carefully.
“Me too.” Akira admitted “There’s kind of a lot at stake here you know.”
“How do you mean?” Ellis said and felt a little more nervous when Akira took a step forward and took his hands in his.
“Because you’re one of my best friends - and if this were to end badly I’d totally loose you. So I don’t wanna make any mistakes.”
“Well that suddenly put a lot of pressure on me.” Ellis breathed out anxiously.
“Take it easy, I just wanted to put that out there. It’s all or nothing you know?”
“I get it.” Ellis nodded “We should have some drinks, loosen up a little?”
“Sounds good.” Akira smiled.

Why don't you use the improbably-cool scythe as a hook?

See now a hooked polearm would probably work decently as a weapon if you have like. another, smaller weapon in close quarters where once you’ve hooked the person towards you, you have something to do with them assuming they survive the hooking and are looking for a fight. Otherwise yanking people up in your personal space when your main advantage is range is probably not a good idea. Would probably depend if most of the people you’re dealing with are wearing armor, and, how sharp your hook is- that is to say, how much 

It might be an anti-cavalry approach? Hooking someone off horseback, though I don’t know enough about mounted combat to be able to say for sure if that’s a Super Good Idea.

But I think it’d have to be designed to be a hook? Since a lot of the Ominous Scythes have a really long blade that would be cumbersome to hook someone with.

“If you’re watching this, you’re probably some kind of sentient life form responding to my distress call – well, it’s not really an official distress call because, well, the hardware for that is kind of crushed, but I’m definitely in distress, so that should probably count for something.”

The young man on the screen sighs and rubs his face, jerking his hand away with a hiss. He’s bleeding, Derek realises: there’s a gash across his brow and the knuckles of both hands are bruised and bloody, and that’s only what he can make out between the cracks in the glass and the frame of the camera.

“What the hell kind of a name is Stiles?” he asked.

“You know, a series of sounds spoken in a particular sequence that represent my identity, primarily, referring to me?“ the AI – Stiles – answered cheekily, crossing his own arms in front of his chest, mirroring Derek’s position.

“Ooh, this one’s feisty,” Peter smirked.

Stiles has simple goals in life. To successfully complete his secret radar project without getting fired, to get a cottage on the Moon, and to untangle his mess of feelings for Moon Station 3 deputy, Derek Hale. Heck, he’ll even settle for two of the three.

When he finally lays eyes on Hale, Stiles is hovering upside down over the pilot console - which, thank god, is emitting a steady, soft light that says good things about its potential operating condition. The perspective screws with him a little, and Stiles has only got three weeks of basic medic training under his belt to begin with, but he’s pretty sure that the glazed look in Hale’s drooping eyes and the smear of red on the skin showing around the edges of his helmet are bad news

just like you would anybody else tbh u might have to try more because if you’re friends especially if you’re close basic flirting may not come across as flirtation and just jokingly

Captain America was flirting with me

Good gosh almighty, I might have needed that. That and putting him over my knee backwards and upside down.

You can tease me about yoga looking like stripper moves, but the teacher in me will show you how it’s done. And I’ll show you I’m strong enough spot your body 6'2", 200lbs of muscle.

Hi you <3 I was just browsing through ur blog and read so many of your mm reactions, they're all so good !!!? But I suddenly asked myself, if theres a chance that YOU might have some reaction requests? ^^ I know you can simply do a headcanon post but having someone else doing your request is always something funny(like u do). I think it'd be funny if you really have smth in your head and post it on here and everyone who's interested can repost it with their thoughts ( just stupid idea haha )

Haha wow this is actually kind of a cool idea?!!!!

1. “I don’t really have a type. Chubby guys maybe? They’re better to cuddle.” 

Me: “….You know…some people might interpret that as a kink.” 

“What??? Why???” 

2. “I just feel so bad for people on diets. Like, why would you do that to yourself?”

UGH.

This is gonna be a rather “out of the blue” complaint but:

I really wish media, would be more conscious of how they write and depict elderly people. Like it feels like it’s such an easy joke to make fun of all the problems old people deal with: losing their memory, bad backs or knees, needing all sorts of medications, etc.

To be honest, it’s rather sad to see people make jokes out of old age, like “Haha they’re dumb and slow” like… I dunno, it’s discouraging to me that we are developing a mentality like that to elderly people.

I do find it good to see instances where old people are shown as wise and well able, but it might not hurt to show them having real and believable struggles, but not show them as a joke.

And maybe when it comes to movies, they aren’t shown dying off.

That’s really all I got to say on the matter.

So for the past 3-4 years I've been feeling like I was born the wrong gender. I feel like I should have been a woman and I'd love to actually be my real gender, however I am horribly dysphoric towards myself and there's a small part of me that says "you'd never be able to pull it off." Do you have any suggestions or tips that might help me? Thank you -A scared girl in a boys body



Seriously though, look up some general transgender advice, perhaps have a chat with a gender therapist. You very much sound like most trans girls I’ve talked to.

Also if you’re worried about pulling it off, try looking at some timelines. Heck look at my #transition tag - at some point the pain of not transitioning overwhelms the fear of transitioning.

But yeah, start small. Baby steps. Do things that are slightly outside your comfort zone and step by step you’ll transition. Like if you’re scared of wearing nail polish, then try doing it. If you’re a little scared of trying on dresses and skirts and stuff, do it in the safety of your home, but try it out still. Do small things, wear some makeup, tiny steps. All those tiny steps together will get you there. :)

As for how to lessen dysphoria? My general go-to is coffee, chocolate, bad movies and sleeeeeep <3 Good luck!
