i remember when these came out

anonymous asked:

Back when you first opened up that adoption menu, why did you pick Dom? What made him stand out from the rest? And is that the name he came with or did you change it?

Funny story, around the time Alya and Nino adopted I had installed a mod that made the sims have random crazy skin colors. I cant really remember why I had it, but I did. So I pull up the adoption menu, knowing I wanted a Child, and was face with this crayola box of a selection:

Obviously Dom was the only human-looking choice, plus he looked so darn cute I couldn’t pass him up. And his name is the one he’s had since birth!

if I can just make a sad ranty post about this….. what’s so hurtful to me is how Zak keeps proving to us how he views women. when I first started watching GA, I liked how Zak would stand up to “bad spirits” - especially ones that hurt women. idk…. sure it was cringey but as a fangirl - u know how u sort of feel when he’d be making a point to act like the ‘tough guy’/defender of women. he put on this whole show where he appeared flustered around some lady guests when flirting w them, and of course, he infamously devoted half a show to seducing Jerusha. it’s fucking mind-bending how all of that had to have been an act. Maybe his entire persona in the early eps was just an act. Because, as we know, while filming those things he was off w a 16 year old girl and rounding up every fangirl off of twitter. I guess it’s only speculation that I’m saying this, since it’s not facts……. but it’s disheartening. how people can fool you. 

Listen, as a happily practicing bisexual with some 30-odd years under my belt, I have a thick skin. While I have massive issues with this show, I try to take it in stride. Progress takes time. I’ve learned that and am trying to have patience with it. 

The thing is: Danny Miller has and continues to say very problematic bi-phobic things. Do I not like what he says? Fuck yeah I don’t like it. Do I think he is a bad person for it? No, actually I don’t but that’s because I don’t think it comes from an actual malicious place. I don’t think he is aware of what he is saying and how it comes across. 

Is that an excuse? No, it’s not. However, I realize that he may not be ready to understand that yet. (I remember some of things he said back when Aaron first came out and he has learned so I have hope he will again) I wish someone could sit him down and quietly explain why it is wrong. (And also give him a little class on you know PR because his skills are lacking in that area at times, lol)

Do I hate Danny? Gosh, no. Not at all. I think he is a lad with a good heart. He cares deeply about his family, he loves and is loyal to his mates, and he tries to do good in the world with his charities. I honestly feel like he is this kid who I want to slap upside the head half the time and hug the rest of it. (Danny is basically the real life personification of how I feel about Robert Sugden, lol).

Do I understand why others do? Gosh, yes I do. I really do. I get it. These people are not wrong for feeling the way they do. His words have caused a lot of pain for them. It hurts to be negated, made to feel invisible and unworthy. And when you look up to a person and they let you down like that, it’s even worse.

Those feelings of anger, dislike and hate towards DM are valid. 

Those feelings of love, happiness and joy toward DM are valid. 

Feelings are feelings. Nobody is wrong here. 

It just is, what it is. 

Best thing we can do for each other is allow everyone to express those feelings and let them be. 

Young and In love

John Shelby - Young and In love

“I’m so glad you’re back!” you just about heard Ada shout over the music roaring through the Garrison, the people of Small Heath dancing around you as they celebrated Arthur’s new ownership.

“Well, I certainly came back on the right night” you held your drink up to her with a smile which she returned, leaving the two of you to cheers and pull each other into an embrace.

You lent back, letting your eyes roam across the crowds laughing and joking, finding yourself smiling at the comfortable familiarity of the pub and Small Heath itself. You let out a sigh as you took a swig of your drink, a small smirk playing on your lips when you remembered John sat in the corner, knowing he would still be staring at you.

Malec 2x18

Ok so everyone is saying this bed scene we see in the promo is a flashback but what if it’s not and that’s the makeup scene. Now I know it’s a bit of a stretch but remember when 2x15 stills came out and because there clothes was similar everyone thought that was a flashback when it wasn’t .now I know him showing the cat eyes is a flashback which explains Alec reaction to them in 2x08. either way I’m going to die

Today’s the day! The World Ends With You is now 10 years old.

As soon as I get home (I’m about to be on a very long airplane ride) I’m going to draw something for it, but until then - I want to share some of my experiences with TWEWY.

When I was fourteen, it came out in the USA and I picked it up entirely at random. I was depressed and suicidal and video games were the only thing that gave me any sort of fulfillment, so I chose one at random - and I’m so glad I did. It changed me, challenged my thoughts about life and about my own self worth. And while I still struggle with depression, I can truly say this game saved my life. I will be grateful for that for eternity.

I remember seeing the cover on the shelf at a Walmart - I knew nothing about it, but the cover drew me in, it was sleek and gorgeous and looked nothing like other games on the shelf. And I was not disappointed - I played it without stopping. On the bus to school, in public, anywhere - I wanted to keep playing, even though I honestly wasn’t very good at it back then. I remember crying on the bus home at the end of Week 2. I remember beating the game in the short span of time I had between being home from school and when my family got home, and I got to experience it without interruption, and it hit me like a freight train.

I was sad and happy, betrayed and awed. And hopeful - for the first time in a long time.

Since then, it has been an active part of my life. I’ve met a huge number of friends through it, and become closer to others by bonding over it. I’ve taken chances to go and do things I never would have before if not for the inspiration this game has given me.

I really did think I would be dead before I was 15 back then. Now I’m nearly 23 - and just this week, I got to visit Shibuya. I can thank TWEWY for that. For my life, for helping me find a way in this difficult world - for being an amazing game that inspires me every day, and which will continue to inspire me until I die.

Thank you, TWEWY. I promise I’ll still be here for the 20th anniversary, too.

god i remember when call me maybe came out cause it was back when i still went on reddit and there were these long ass threads with straight men like, explaining that the reason they loved the song was cause it’s about a woman asking a guy out and taking the initiative or whatever like………. imagine being so up your ass with toxic masculinity that you can’t just say a pop song is fun to listen to


Hey fam, let’s talk about gatekeeping.
The following is a screencap from a boomerang on the Star Trek Instagram, where I made the apparently grievous error of pressing my thumb into my hand. This is, as several people felt the need to point out, an incorrect way to give the Vulcan salute.

I am a fan of Star Trek. I grew up watching TOS and TNG. I remember when Voyager came out. I looked up to Janeway, even if I feel like I have to mention her disregard for the prime directive every time I speak to another fan about her, now. Unlike many people, Voyager is one of my favorites, and I watched the Search for Spock until I wore down the VHS. My first “OC” when I was about eleven was in the Star Trek verse, and she had a well researched though embarrassingly cliché backstory.

And… you know what?

None of that matters.

What? I’m serious. None of that matters. If you started with the new movies and you don’t know what an NCC-1701 is, or you saw TOS as a kid but you can’t remember the names of the bridge crew…

If Star Trek brought you joy, if you consider yourself a fan – congratulations! Here’s your fan card.

You don’t get it by doing every salute perfectly. You don’t get it by singing Happy Birthday in Klingon. You don’t get it when you’ve reached the blissful moment of being to answer when another fan asks you what is your favorite ship model number.

You’re a fan because you love it. You don’t need to answer to anyone.

Yeah I remember when everyone was saying that dnp were moving out and there were some people that didn't believe it and although I started to suspect that they were moving long before they said it I was so surprised when the video came out because every theory we've ever made seems so accurate and possible but when it turns out that it's actually true I'm always soooo suprised

yep I remember being attacked in the comments for that, what a fun time

back then, we had good theories and proof, but so many people still denied it. which is actually very similar to the room sharing right now ;))

anonymous asked:

does anyone else remember when on ahl v, suga and jungkook were talking about a movie that came out in 1993 and taehyung was like "that movie came out when i was still with my dad" iM screaming dkfjddan

JSDHGFYFSB i know!!!!!!! i can’t with him..

Ya know whats fucked up? I first came out when i was 15 as trans to my parents, in fact while discusing this with my sister she pointed out that she remembered me comming out several dozen times after that. Why? Bc my parents just ignored me and tried to pretend it never happened.

Yet just the other day me and my dad were talking (me attempting to fix some burned bridges inbetween me and my dad bc i love my mom and sis) and he said i was alound to ask him and my mom to call me by he/him pronouns and my real name.

Like?? I wanted to cry tears of fustration? Because ive basically done this dozen of times over the span of 4 years and drasticly different ways in a attempt to get them to actually give a shit about me.

Idk this is really hitting me hard today and i just want to cry

    Has it really been 20 years since Stargate SG-1 came onto our TV screens? I remember being really annoyed with my dad when ever he would watch this show about the military, aliens and a weird stand up swimming pool. Flash forward to couple years later, its summer, I’m home alone, flipping channels, bored out of my mind, when I come across this show…this time, I watch. The next day its on again, and I watch. By the end of that summer I’ve caught up on most of the seasons and its just became one of my favourite shows ever. 

    Being part of the Stargate fandom, has introduced me to some amazing people, from the actors on the show, to fans around the world. And although its been off air for 10 years, the fans are just as passionate. (You just gotta dig a little to find them.) I like to believe that Stargate was what lead me into my scifi obsession, and all the amazing shows in this genre. Who knows what I’d be watching if it wasn’t for that one bored summer and all those reruns. 

  What else is left to say other than THANK YOU!?

hey remember after iron man 2 came out and everyone was like “lol tony and I are one, tony’s so relatable” and then when the first avengers came out and everyone was like “aww tony didn’t mention himself in the super power lineup poor baby :( I relate tho” and then Tony’s ptsd and depression stopped being so cute and relatable and starting being debilitating and his anxiety wasn’t a quirk it was an untreated mental illness that gave him hyper-paranoia and made him make questionable decisions and then he stopped being everyone’s quirky fave and became tumblr’s scapegoat and the embodiment of all that is evil because “remember how tony sold weapons, remember when tony was mean to Steve on the helicarrier” even though you guys completely ignored that like three years ago lol remember that those were good times

remember when undertale came out and it was just people taking funny videos and editing undertale character faces over them? that was good i miss that


I woulda given you the news but, y’know, you kinda made it clear you didn’t want to hear from me, so . . . 

Since today is Benedict’s birthday, I thought to share my story.

So, there it is.

I’m an Italian girl studying in London, and the important thing about this, is that Benedict Cumberbatch brought me there.

I started watching Sherlock three years ago, and the problem was that it didn’t just become my favorite tv show ever, but it also changed my life in a significant way.

I was already familiar with the Sherlock Holmes movies, but when I saw Benedict’s version, I was completely blown away, because I had never been impressed by an actor in that way before. I started reading the novels, I fell in love with the English Literature and theatre, I fell in love with London and everything related to that city.
Since that moment, I couldn’t stop thinking about the fact that my country may not have been the right choice for my future.

Therefore, two years later I sent my application for a university in London, and it was accepted. Then, on September 2016, I left Italy, my family, my friends, and everything that had been part of my life up to that point. It was one of the most frightening and challenging moments of my life. And so were the following weeks, because I kept feeling out of place and lost, and I missed my family.

Then something happened.
Benedict was announced as guest at the Sherlock convention two days before the actual convention took place. Nobody was expecting that announcement.
I immediately bought a photo with him, using the money I received for my 18th birthday. For the first time since my departure, I was happy to be where I was, and for the first time I didn’t feel homesick.

That day was surreal. I didn’t eat or drink anything all day, the only thing I could think about was what to do or say once I’d reach him. My hearth had never beat faster.

After thinking and overthinking, I finally found the perfect phrase: six words, six simple words that would have summed up what he represented for me, so I kept repeating those six words in my head.

When the moment came, and once I entered the room, I had ten seconds to realize that the person who somehow brought me to that point of my life was right in front of me, smiling and posing for everybody. Everything else stopped, I don’t remember anything, I just remember looking at him and being happy.

When my turn came I said those six words out loud with my trembling voice.

“Thank you for being my inspiration”, I said to him.
He said a quick thank you before the picture was taken. But right after that, he looked at me in the eyes and said: “Thank you for telling me that”.

Benedict Cumberbatch didn’t know me at all, I was just a fan as everybody else, and yet he listened to me, he really listened to me and thanked me.

He was kind and nice, as you’d expect him to be.

I was completely overwhelmed.

Benedict Cumberbatch was the first person who made me feel at home in a city which wasn’t my own.
Is he simply an actor? Yes.
Does he know me? No.
Do I really know him? No.

And yet, in that day I felt truly happy for the first time since I had left my family.
In a moment when all I wanted to do was give up and go home, Benedict Cumberbatch was the only person who was able to make me feel like if I was in the right place, at the right moment, doing the right thing. So I didn’t give up, and now I’m about to begin my second year.

He inspires me everyday as an actor and as a human being, and there’s no way I could possibly explain my gratitude to this man, but I hope that one day I will be able to tell him how profound his impact on my life was.

So, happy birthday Benedict, you’re an extraordinary actor and a wonderful, wonderful person. You deserve the world and more 🎂 ♥️
