Never-Ending Winter

What do you do when Mother Nature gives you snow in March and your lil’ Southern heart just doesn’t know how to handle it? 

YOU MAKE CHILI, THAT’S WHAT YOU DO. 

Growing up, chili was always a special occasion kind of food. It meant that my mama would be in the kitchen for a few hours, chopping and dicing up a storm. The kitchen would fill with the mouth watering aroma of onions and her special blend of spices as they cooked in her cast-iron. She’s make way more than we needed, which guaranteed leftovers for days - and if you’ve never had leftover chili, let me tell you something: that stuff gets even BETTER with age. 

Over the years I’ve had to work my way through vegetarian chili recipes in order to find my favorite iteration (sadly, my mom’s OG recipe contains meat and just isn’t the same without it). The recipe below is my favorite version of an awesome veggie chili recipe I found before this year’s Super Bowl, and it definitely passes the better-with-age leftovers test. 

1 medium onion, diced
1 cup celery, diced
½ cup carrot, peeled and diced
1 12 oz. can diced tomatoes, unsalted
2 tbsp olive oil
2 sweet potatoes, peeled and diced
4 cloves garlic, minced
1 can black beans
1 can cannellini (white) beans
1 cup corn, fresh or frozen 
3 cups vegetable stock, homemade or store-bought 
1 tbsp chili powder
1 tsp paprika
½ tsp cayenne (or more depending on how spicy you like it)
½ tsp salt + more to taste (added at the end)

Totally optional garnishes: 
sharp cheddar cheese
avocado, diced
white or red onion, diced
plain Greek yogurt or sour cream

Serves 4-6 (or 1 with enough leftovers for a few days…) 

Heat olive oil over in a large pot over medium-high heat. Add onion, celery, and carrots at the same time and cook for 5 minutes or until onion are translucent. Add sweet potatoes and cook for another 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Next add spices (everything except for the salt) and garlic, allowing to cook for about a minute or so before adding tomatoes and stock. The last things you’ll add are the black beans, cannellini beans, corn, and salt. Stir everything together then reduce heat to medium-low and put a lid on it. The chili should be at a low simmer for a minimum of 30 minutes, but it could cook for upwards of 45. 

Turn off the stove and carefully remove 1/3 of the chili, transferring to a large mixing bowl or blender. If you’ve got a stick blender, go ahead and puree the chili in the mixing bowl (do the same if you’re using a blender). If you haven’t got either, don’t worry! Your chili will still taste delicious - this step is for thickening purposes. Add the pureed chili back to the rest of the pot and stir to combine. Serve up your chili and top it with anything you’d like! And then enjoy it again the next day! And the next!

A broken heart can help you find your beauty.
Before my first heartbreak I didn’t understand my worth yet.
Before my first heartbreak, I thought I needed to find love with somebody else completely forgetting that that love needed to be for myself.
Before my first heartbreak, I was lost.
But after I got my first broken heart, I was found.

Embrace the process of your growth and your experiences and your mistakes. They’re there to help you continuously become a better version of yourself ❤

First Sentence Writing Prompt 28

An anon asked me to do all the prompts on the first sentence writing prompt list. So here we go!

Feel free to suggest more prompts if you wish. I’m struggling to write for my other fics and I find in order to get my muse back I need to keep writing. So it’s a win win for everyone :)



28. I don’t care that it’s 2:00am, we need pie.

Title: 2:00am Pie

“I don’t care that it’s 2:00am, we need pie.”

Serena watched Bernie scramble to her feet and run across the bed on shaky legs. “Bernie…” Serena laughed at her when she jumped down onto the floor with a gentle thud. “Hadn’t you better put some clothes on?”

“Pfft,” Bernie made a face. Serena loved every aspect of Bernie, the happy versions and the moody ones but one of her favourites was drunk Bernie. She was so carefree, so youthful when she was drunk. “Don’t be such a stiff Ms Campbell,” she grinned. “We’re on holiday and if I want to walk around naked as the day I was born then I bloody well will!”

Serena rolled her eyes. “I was thinking you may have a few admirers through that very large window that overlooks the beach.”

“Jealous?” Bernie teased as she grabbed Serena’s hands and began to pull her from the bed.

“I’m thinking more about sitting with them for breakfast tomorrow morning,” Serena laughed when Bernie moved in close and her hands began to wander over her equally naked body.

“Do you think they’ll stare at us?” Bernie brushed her tongue up Serena’s neck and bit down on her earlobe. Serena shivered.

“We both know you’ll be the one who most uncomfortable once you’ve sobered up,” Serena said as she gripped Bernie’s hips and pushed her toward the dressing table. Bernie let out a little gasp when she collided with the hard wood.

“Right now I don’t care,” she said, her hands squeezing Serena’s arse. “I want pie.”

Serena smirked as her hands wandered up Bernie’s torso and began to massage her breasts. “Is that what we’re calling it now?” She brushed her lips against Bernie’s and Bernie laughed.

“Call it what you like,” Bernie gasped, her hips rocking against Serena’s. “I want it now.”

“Will you devour it?” Serena ran her tongue over Bernie’s lips and moved a hand down her stomach.

“I want to savour every bite,” Bernie said huskily. “I want to taste every inch.”

Serena smirked and kissed her partner hard, her hand now pushing down to cup Bernie between the legs. She was soaking, so very hot and ready. Bernie whimpered and Serena grinned as she pulled away. “We better go get that pie then,” she said as she took a step back.

Bernie grinned and grabbed hold of her again. She pulled her back to her as she sat up on the table. “I think we have everything I need right here,” she said as she wove her hands into Serena’s hair and brought their lips together. Serena laughed into the kiss. Pie at 2:00 am was definitely something she could get used to.

okk here are those quick refs I mentioned, I never made this sort of refs before so I’m not sure exactly what you need to know, so there are some back/fronts

I also added some shoes and versions of outfits with less skin exposed in case you’re not comfortable with tha t

also in case of characters that are wearing more regular tshirts (like Roxy, Sollux and Jake) be free to add their “symbol” on them if you want!

you can find better views/different angles on some things on this tag!

Kamunami Week coming soon!

Rules:

1. Whether you choose SDR2 (Super Dangan ronpa 2) or DR3 (Danganronpa 3) Kamunami, it does not matter. Whichever one you prefer is fine. If you like the AI version of Chiaki better than human Chiaki, that’s fine. It still counts regardless.

2. If you are late in submitting your work, be it a fanfiction, a drawing, a creative video, homemade item etc., it’s fine. I will accept late submissions. I want those who are participating to take as much time as they need to work on whatever it is they are contributing. Be sure to tag your work with the tag: “kamunami week”, so I can find it.

3. Remember, this is Kamunami Week, not Hinanami Week. People have different interpretations on how they ship Kamunami. That’s fine. I’m not going to tell you how to ship. However, if you are going to use some Hinanami undertones, be sure that it’s not overpowering Kamunami. In other words, don’t make it 90% Hinanami and only have a bit of Kamunami somewhere in your work. I will not accept that. Kamunami needs to be the main focus of your work. If you do use some slight Hinanami be sure to tag it in there. If I see Hinanami and you don’t tag it, I will not count it. You may post it, but I will not count it towards Kamunami Week.

4. Respect other people’s creations. This is not a contest. This is about expanding Kamunami.

5. You do not have to participate for all the prompts. If you want to, that’s awesome, but you are not required to do all of them. Just the ones you want.

6. If you have questions about any of the prompts/themes or rules, feel free to message me.

7. NSFW will not be allowed.

gizensha  asked:

Is the non-musical version of Mulan we're apparently getting better or worse than the prospects of a musical live action version of Mulan made by people who seemingly either don't understand musicals, or are resentful of having to make one? I mean obviously 'find a production company and/or director who wants to do a musical' would be a better choice, and I still don't get why we need these live action adaptations of Disney animations, but...

I mean, I’m more miffed about the idea of Li Shang getting replaced by a different male lead than by the songs being left out.

Here is zen for the beauty and the beast au

So I feel zen is good for gaston for many reasons. like he is very narcissistic. He’s obsessed with the main girl (mc/belle) and hates the person “keeping” main girl away from him. threatens to steal (“rescue”) the main girl back. He is convinced he’s the better man but needs constant validation. everyone knows him and thinks he’s so handsome but he wants validation from the main girl. Zen is like a nicer version of Gaston. I’m pretty sure gaston finds roses pointless which in this au Elizabeth is the rose so it works lmao also like zen hates reading but jumin enjoys it and gaston hates reading but the beast enjoys it im like YE BOI!!!!

Hello,

There are times we reflect on where we think we have already said what has been needed, words becoming obsolete and losing their merit and value. Others already have spoken on the matter you were going to address; others have already stated their case. There are no more words to be said that would shed any new light on the matter altogether, so the question remains:

Why do people keep writing?

I have noticed it in conversations. I have noticed it during readings and history, and I have experienced it first hand, and yet I somehow still find myself writing about the next installment, telling my version of events even if there may be a better version more widely available. It is like your Bible, I suppose, and even then humans have seen to change the words from the initial writing from that, haven’t they…

Why do people keep writing? Why do I? Lately, that has been a question plaguing my mind. The same story has already been told about our current state of affairs: Kelly Kline is due almost any week now and Heaven has yet to reveal anything to me. Sam and Dean are on Earth thinking that I am also there, and I found myself withholding the truth once more. Is writing not meant to reveal that truth? Why have I not written the truth to them, told them what was happening?

… I know the answer. I know what they would say. Predicting answers, especially from Sam and Dean, is a formula I have long since perfected, especially after nearly a decade.

And yet I keep writing, my own formula never seeming to want to solidify. I keep changing my points, deleting my history, and reverting back to a place that I thought I had passed. It is a never ending circle of doubt that resides in the shell of an angel that saw the truth, and yet he keeps writing.

The question was why, though now I am beginning to wonder if it has morphed into for what? For what am I writing for now, truly?

The question will not be answered today, unfortunately, but maybe someday. 

Yours,

Castiel

Yoshiki:Do you need my jacket? You must be freezing. Put this on.

CP fandom version of Ayumi: “What? I didn’t hear you over my Mochida chanting ritual. We must find him now, don’t waste my time… and UGH, put that dirty thing away from me! Don’t you dare think I’m being the ungrateful one here because, if it wasn’t for me, you wouldn’t—

What Ayumi really said: “If it’s cold, wouldn’t it be better if you put it on? If you take it off now, I’m sure you’ll catch a cold too.

Begin Again (Life is Strange fanfiction)

After playing the episode 3 and being shaken by the ending, I had to comfort myself with a new story. So if you share the feelings, try reading this, I hope this makes your day better. (And sorry for my eventual mistakes.)


Max felt devastated. She was sitting on a couch at Price’s. After talking to Chloe, this version of Chloe, she knew what to do.

What have I done? How could have I? I need to find that photo. I have to. But William… Or Chloe… But this is not my life, I don’t belong here. This is just another possible world, which I am not part of.

“Chloe?” Max sobbed. “Would you like to… go through our old photos and remember the times when we were kids?” Her voice was shaking, her vision blurred, but she couldn’t let it be this way.

“It would be nice, yes. I always liked to look at photos. Especially when you weren’t here. And please… stop crying already. I am happy to see you again.” Chloe sounded so sweet, not like her punk version. Max couldn’t get used to that tone. “You can choose some album, they are over there.”

A little self positivity and promo fun. List your 5 favorite fics and/or art pieces that you’ve done so far(and say why if you want) and then tag some friends!


1. This is one of my favourites done recently. I really like the details, and the shift of the style that happened. Also I generally like such flower ornaments, and such pseudo-artsy compositions and elements. I really want to play more with this style, but I guess it doesn’t fit OPM at all orz. There are still mistakes, I need to find out what kind of line thickness I should use. For example here, hair might have been done using too thin lines, and as such gets really pixaleted and unreadable after scaling down the picture.


2. Still best coloring I’ve done recently. Oh sure she’s still kind of 2D I could work more on better shadows and contrast.. but I kinda like the low contrast, not overly shiny version. I’d fix her hair and stuff, but I kinda want to paint something so soft and pretty again. I need to start drawing other stuff than OPM I know. But I love the fandom so much, can’t quit it.

3. In a sense this was my first Genos. He doesn’t even yet look much like Genos, it was before I got more practice drawing him haha. But I really like it as a painting.  The colors, the shading. Also his eyes were a lot of fun. Could use work on hair.

4. Another case of I WANT TO DRAW SOMETHING LIKE THIS AGAIN. No seriously I was on such a roll initially and drew like 4 pairing pictures. in week or two. Then I lost it, and I no longer can do that sensualy pairingy things. OTL. I guess I started making them more like the dorks they are but…. COME BACK TO MEEEEEE

5. Speaking of dorks, yeah this is how I more started to portray them later hahaha. I really like the soft and simple coloring here. I want to experiment with this too, because I miss color works, but at the same don’t have much time for fully rendered pieces like no 2.


I don’t know how to people. I’m afraid of tagging people s-s-so if you want to take it, and do the meme please do!

No offence to Americans but it annoys me when people call it Harry Potter and the Sorcerers Stone! I realise it may not be my place to find it irritating but JK Rowling said herself she regretted allowing the American publishing company to change the name! It is what the books (and films) were originally called and I honestly think it sounds better! Harry Potter and the Philosophers Stone links to Alchemy and is more original!

(Taiga’s note: no offense to Brits, but we didn’t ask for the books to be changed. i’m pretty sure the kids could have handled the British versions just fine. the publisher wasn’t right in thinking Americans needed it to be dumbed down for us!)

We started as strangers. A stranger whom i never thought will have a big spot in my heart. I got the chance to enter the broken window that’s full of darkness. I was lucky i got the chance to know you. I never thought i would fall in love with someone like you. Maybe, we were destined to meet each other, to fall in love, to learn something and to realize things that only the two of us can discover. You shaped me into what I believed was a ‘better’ version of me. You took me to places I’ve never been. You taught me how to love unconditionally. We shared secrets and i love the way you made me feel that i was once the most important person in your life.
But just like seasons, people change, some needs to leave, others need to find their place and few chose to stay. And you’re the season that needs to leave after destroying the beautiful garden that i was trying to protect. You left that night without bidding good bye, without saying anything, without any explanation. I was left dumfounded. I feel like i am nowhere to be found. I feel like you had taken away my soul that night. I knew that you would leave me, but I love you enough to let you go.
Then i started to convince myself you never felt anything for me. But i was wrong, i thought i would be okay when you left. But everyday, every minute i waited for your comeback. I stayed at the place where you left me. It feels like everyday, i am having a hard time to breathe. I don’t even know how to embrace myself every night when i am missing you because my whole body hurts like hell. Life was like a black cloud, there was no happiness. You had taken it with you that night. I spent months poisoning my self with liquor, i thought it will help me forget about you, even just your name. I always thought that it would bring you back to me. It didn’t. I waited, months had passed and everyday i am losing my hope that you will come back, but still i waited, until i lgot no strength to continue waiting for you. But you know? I still waited, i used that small hope that maybe, one day you’ll realize something.
But now that you’re back. I don’t know what to feel. I should be happy right? You’re now back and i don’t know what you up to. I don’t know if you came back for me or you came back just because you want to get my hopes high then leave again for the nth time. Honestly i can’t feel anything now. I waited for your explanation. I waited for your sorry, but i got nothing. I was the one who said sorry because i thought it’s my fault why you left. But i didn’t hear anything from you. I didn’t even hear you say “i miss you”. I’ve been dying to hear that from you for how many months of not hearing anything from you.
I still want to hold on to you. But i’m slowly losing my hope that we still have our second chance. But it’s draining and I’m tired, so tired.
I still love you but i think i’m losing my chance. Can you save me this time? Can you please find me this time? I want you to chase me this time. I want to know if you still want me in your life. But if not, then i’ll just leave.

Bighit. How I came to hell.

It was a fucking normal day for me. Scrolling through Instagram. What the fuck was tumblr? Kpop is gay. They look like girls. I scroll through musical.ly so that I can feel better about myself and watch the clones of Jacob Satorious be dumb as hell. And then there’s an area that says J-pop. I LOVE ANIME! I scroll through the songs and find I Need U Japanese Version. That was how shit went downhill for me. How bout you?
