i should have one of these for tumblr

anonymous asked:

I went through some of your communism tag, and it is extremely relatable. It is a subject that makes me emotional almost every time that i read about it or think about it for a while and seeing ppl think it's cute or a funny meme or smth makes me wanna vomit and cry. I'm Latvian, so I take these kinds of things almost personally and I can't help it. Thank you for spreading awerness and spilling truth about this, I really appreciate it.

Given the fact that tumblr is extremely communist-friendly site, I sometimes feel like I’m talking to a wall.

But other times, when non-Baltics on tumblr say “You’re making us uncomfortable.” or “You should keep quiet about it.”  when I post about communist crimes committed against citizens of Baltic States, I feel like I’m doing the right thing.

They have no right to say so - this is our history, our countries’ past and no one can erase the truth.

The people who tell us such things have never been in our shoes - the kids in Baltic States learn about genocide of their ethnicity when they are barely in double digits at latest, often earlier.

People who tell us “It wasn’t that bad!” have never looked into eyes of a person who went to hell (Siberian labour camp) and back.

People who tell us “It wasn’t real communism!!” have never heard the fear in their parents voice as they tell about the suitcase under the bed, just in case, should they be deported to Siberia.

You have every right to take this personally - this is your country’s history, your legacy. 

As far as I see it - we the younger generation have to uphold the truth, demand justice for our ancestors, because if we won’t, who will?

On the Fae

Okay, so I’ve noticed a lot of misinformation and misunderstandings about the Fae.  What they are, what the Courts are, etc.  I’m writing this out to provide some guidance based on my experience with them.

So, to start, I’ll give you my definition of what makes a Fae, well… Fae.  So to me the Fae are defined as a non-human entity with human cunning that has never been human, but was not created with the purpose of serving a god (Otherkin are a whole other beast, which I don’t want to discuss in this post). Pretty general, no?  That’s on purpose, and though it isn’t perfect, it’s the best definition I’ve come up with to date.  It excludes things like vampires, which I would never consider Fae.  However, it troublingly includes werecreatures, which with some exceptions I don’t consider Fae.  

In my experience, Fae can include things like the Yōkai in Japanese mythology. This is based on meeting the definition stated above.  However, this does not give me or any other person license to interact with beings that belong to closed cultures.  Just because it meets the definition, does not mean people should run willy-nilly about, interacting or interfering with beings that generally tend to not wish to interact with those who are not a part of their culture.

Courts and Manners

Moving on to the Courts. Firstly, there are more than the Seelie and Unseelie Courts.  There are Winter and Summer, Night and Day Courts, as well as numerous others.  I’m sure you’ve noticed a trend.  The Fae like to set themselves as opposites, and they tend to be quite territorial.  I have noticed that the Fae tend not to only have one version of the Courts.  There are small Courts scattered across territory, much like how human history had scattered kingdoms all through history.  However, I should add that speaking about the Courts only includes trooping Fae.  There are solitary Fae as well.  

Good and evil.  I’ve seen this one a lot on Tumblr, especially in regards to Seelie and Unseelie Fae.  Unseelie are not evil.  Seelie are not good. Morality is a bit of a grey zone among the Fae, and you must remember just because they do not have the same moral code as you, that does not make them evil.  Interacting with any spirit under the assumption that they are going to be ‘good’ or ‘evil’ is extremely dangerous.  The Courts tend to attract Fae of certain temperaments and behaviours.

Now, let’s talk about species and appearances.  I’ve found it’s a pretty common misconception that the Court Fae, and Fae in general are tiny creatures no bigger than the palm of your hand.  This is definitely not the case.  Court Fae can vary in size from the size of my thumb to giant creatures. Usually these extremes in sizes tend not to be the rulers of the Court, but they do tend to be things like Knights. Most rulers of Courts that I’ve encountered tend to be approximately human size.  However, this does not mean they look human.  And I’m not saying ‘oh, they’re unearthly and beautiful.’  I’ve seen Fae that vary greatly; from the stunningly beautiful, to the strange, to the grotesque, to monstrous.  They’re incredibly varied creatures, and though they fall under an umbrella term I think it would be a mistake to assume they’re homogenous.

Values

Because I mostly see questions regarding Unseelie and Seelie Court Fae, below is what I’ve seen in regards to what they value:

Unseelie tend to value bloodsport, sacrifice, chaos, and the like.  Generally, they tend to be more welcoming of outsiders.  I should add that Unseelie tends to refer to the fact that they dwell under the hills.  

Seelie tend towards a rigid sense of honor and dishonor, superiority to humanity, and have a strong sense of justice.  They are less welcoming of outsiders.  They spend most of their time above ground.

It should be noted that both of these Courts have participated in Tithes, where a mortal is sacrificed to appease those more powerful than the Fae.  

Offerings and Bargains

Speaking of which, let’s discuss offerings and what working with them is like.  There’s a lot of things you can do to attract Fae. I recommend you tread carefully, especially if you are working in places like North America and are contacting European Fae or the like.  Not that you cannot work with them, but you need to have a basic understanding of the land.  In fact, I would say this goes for anywhere that experienced aggressive colonization. Make sure you make offerings or do things to appease the local spirits that have been there first.  Try planting native things to your area, or offering them local foods. They can turn on you if you create an influx of invaders, and create extra chaos in your life.  The Fae can be pretty open to interacting with mortals, but they’re very keen on bargaining. Be very specific on what you want out of a relationship and deal, and don’t immediately accept any offer they provide, otherwise you may end up getting the short end of the stick.  They tend to expect you to work hard to please them, but they will always keep up their end of a deal.  I also recommend erring on the side of extreme politeness, as no one wants to have an angry Faerie lurking around their house creating chaos.  As for offerings and such, I would look to whatever was typically offered to them in the past, or to simply ask them once you’ve struck a bargain.  As spiritual partners and companions, they can be extremely demanding, and want you to work hard and quickly.  When you first begin working with them, they will treat it like a business transaction. Overtime, as they get to know you, they may choose to befriend you, and you will develop a relationship over time. Be patient, and remember although they aren’t human, you have to earn friendship the same way you would with a person.

can you imagine being such a hateful person that you parade with hating fictional characters/ships and send hate messages to people about them on anon (bc you’re a coward), telling them they’re disgusting or even worse - to kill themselves.

beacause i cannot..

This is my main OC Alyssa, I love her so much and should draw her more often :3 I have a story about her in my mind, and I hope to tell it oneday through my drawings.

It’s a kind of a reference to one tragic moment in Alyssa’s story.
Winter and cold played a monstrous role in her fate, she lost everything she could ever have, but instead she got an entirely different ‘life’. She supposed to be born and die at the same moment but the rails of her fate have been changed by the will of Earth itself.

anonymous asked:

I'm going to start learning German , do you have any tips for me?

Duolingo and Memrise are a good start. Use the site for duolingo so you’ll get grammar explanation.

Here’s a folder with grammar books and audio, choose 2-3 so you’ll have a “complete” pack for grammar.

Also, use Forvo when you aren’t sure how to say a word and HiNative for any kind of questions.

Along with this “base”, you should try to check masterposts with sites. Tumblr has a lot of such lists so choose 1 or 2 and try each site, maybe you’ll like some.

Check out this answer with other suggestions.

For general tips i think the ones i gave in this answer work since they are general.

Good luck with your studies~ ^^ if you have any other questions, I’m here.

anonymous asked:

did y'all quit the discourse because randl know about the tumblr and you would rather stan them then help the fandom? i know the mods of this blog are active on twitter and tumblr so i am disappointed.

We started this blog despite very prominent members of fandom being against it, and we kept it going despite fandom backlash. We’ve lost friendships over this blog. One of our mods had to field hateful vitriol for a period of time because of her decision to be vocal about the issues we discuss on this blog.

Rest assured, Rhett and L|nk knowing about this tumblr (which we became aware of the second week we were running this blog), would never make us ‘quit discourse’.

I know it’s disappointing to see this blog so inactive, so I guess I should update everyone on what’s going on with our mods.

Starting with me. I’m not sure how you guys have been distinguishing us, but I’m E @riceandshine. I’m no longer in Rhett and L|nk fandom. I no longer interact with the fandom in the same way I once did (or in any way at all, beyond being friends with the other mods), and that means I’m not informed about the issues going on in fandom. When I feel I have something to offer broadly - regarding the issues themselves and less about its fandom context, I answer as well as I can, but it’s incredibly difficult to respond to some of the asks I see when I have no clue what’s going on. 

Celery and Briana work hours that aren’t ideal. C works 10-12 hours and Bri works nightshift. Sometimes she gets home at 7am. 

The thing about being ‘active on twitter’ is that it takes 20 seconds to post a funny status, even less to reblog a post or queue it. To answer questions about race, gender - that takes longer than 20 seconds. It takes a lot of time and emotional energy that the mods aren’t always able to spare. 

We’re honoured at the importance you’ve placed on this blog as a place of discussion, but we’re not obligated to be saving this fandom from itself - every single member of this fandom have the tools to do that for themselves. We provide this space as an option, but it was never meant to be the only one. It shouldn’t BE the only one.

We understand that this blog makes it easy for a lot of people, and we promise it won’t be gone even if it has periods of quiet, but we don’t appreciate being  accused of putting ‘stanning’ before the very real issues we discuss on this blog. And we also don’t appreciate the implication that we should be obligated to be some sort of ‘help’ for fandom when everything we do - thinking critically about race and gender and sexuality and how that interacts with fandom - can be done by everyone, and SHOULD be done by everyone. This blog is a resource and a place for discussion, but it should not be THE resource or the ONLY place for discussion. 

We won’t disappear, but if we did, we hope that other members of this fandom will be willing to start these discussions in their own spaces. None of this is very effective if it’s only here that discussions are occurring, and only here that these things are relevant, and somehow nothing is being done if we go to work or take a break from tumblr.

Wait for me to come home. - 24/1/16

Listen Sarah J. Mass fans

I think there needs to be a common understanding that when ACOWAR comes out no one should post spoilers on tumblr for AT LEAST 2-3 weeks. Gives everyone the chance to get the book and digest every bit.( if I takes longer leave a comment about how long you need, tbh I can read a 700 page book in less than 2 hours cuz I read fast lol) Idk about you guys but I’d prefer not to come on tumblr and the first thing on my dash is like the biggest spoiler alert EVER

REBLOG THIS AND LIKE IT SO EVERYONE CAN GET THE MEMO AND WE DONT HAVE TO GO THROUGH THE PAIN OF A SPOILER ALERT

“Blease don’t think I’m racist” is the moment tumblr should have self-immolated, just because no one will ever be able to top that. like, no matter what we say on here, we can’t one-up the sheer delirium and horror and powerful funny hexes emanating from that one sentence

Wow, since 2013... I wonder how Tumblr and all sites were back in the day when S1 came out. Unfortunately I missed it and joined until last year lmao. Hey, you're like a veteran of the Snk fandom

I am indeed one of the veteran squad haha, idk why spending years of my life being a weeb should make me proud but I kind of am lmao

but I’ve seen some crazy shit, no regrets

*opens old fandom folder* let’s see
one thing I don’t miss from 2013 is whip wars, we still have some, but 2013 ships wars were fucking brutal lol

half of snk 2013 fandom was plastering this face of Levi on everything

this pose too

2013 fandom basically

the gifs were everything lmao

MI CASA jokes everywhere because we were that lame lmao (like we aren’t now lol)

literally very unnecessary horse jean edits, like why lmao (and why do I have it saved qsfsfs)

BIG ASS  TREES


qsfdsfs sorry I opened this old folder of mine and got carried away, I’m so surprised of all the shit I still have saved lmao

but yeah lol

I don’t regret loving you nor do I regret letting you break my heart, for if you hadn’t, I wouldn’t have learned how a man should treat me. I wouldn’t have met him, he who helped me recover after you left me broken. Yes, it hurt to be left behind and I wouldn’t wish that pain upon my worst enemy, but I’m glad I was able to have that experience. The way I see it is you let me go so that I could find my way to him, my one true love.

If people will be named after colors, I’ll call you purple. The kind of purple that melts in the sky when the sun is about to set and take a rest for awhile. The type of purple that makes my heart jumps a little and lits up the excitement in my eyes.

If people will be named after flowers, you’ll be my rose, no matter how painful your thorns. I’ll embrace you with my arms open wide and cage you in a warm tight hug. Even if it makes me bleed red that’ll surely tear my heart apart.

If people will be named after seasons, I’ll choose Summer among all of those four. You’ll be the sun that kisses my skin, and made my day goes lighter along the way. You’ll make me love the ocean more, and dance to groovy songs. You are the season which will never get tired of warming my heart when Winter tried to cool it with its cold breeze and snowy hands.

If people will be named after places, I’ll call you home. Not Paris, nor New York. You are the place that will always make my heart aches when I’m away—because I’ll surely miss you the moment we took our separate ways. You are the shelter that protects my heart, the one I will always run to no matter what I’m feeling. Happy, angry, sad, jolly, grateful or in love. Because you always understand and know the real me. You’ve seen me— on my ups and downs, and still accepts me— for who I am. I’ll name you after a place that doesn’t have a fancy name, yet will always be the one that will tell me that it’s okay to feel. That it’s okay to be me.

You will always remain in my heart no matter where I go.

And because people have identities, and so are things.

But you and your name will always be my favorite.

00. Lance has wanted to be a Jedi his entire life.

It’s his deepest, most sincere and heartfelt desire.

A Jedi is belonging.

A Jedi has purpose, a path and a place in life. A Jedi looks after others; a Jedi takes care of people. A Jedi is a protector of the galaxy. It’s a longing and a calling Lance has always aspired to.

A Jedi is great, and a Jedi is kind. A Jedi is a keeper of the peace. A Jedi has the Force, wide open and beckoning, bright and true. Lance has loved the Force and the Light for as long as he can remember.

A Jedi looks out for others. A Jedi looks outs for their own.

A Jedi belongs.

Lance is going to be a Jedi.

Little Lance, a handful of years old and toddling on tiptoes in the creche, pudgy face smushed against the transparisteel of the creche window. Stubby fingers leave messy prints, watching all the ships come and go in the distant hustle and bustle of Coruscant night traffic. That’ll be me someday.

Little Lance, older, peeking out from amongst his crechemates as they travel the halls. He watches the robes of the great Jedi Knights swishing about their ankles, Padawans rushing to catch up. That’ll be me someday.

Little Lance, sneaking out to the Temple Gardens late at night to watch the waterfall play, closing his eyes and listening to the Force gurgle over rocks, splash onto stones. The soft breeze of the Force through the grass, the flowers, the trees. The Force is everywhere. A pair of Jedi sit in the grass nearby, quiet, heads bowed in meditation. The Force swirls around them gently, a stream in its own right. Lance hides by his waterfall and observes, content. That’ll be me someday.

Lance, even older. Finally a Padawan himself, following at the heels of his Master as they head down to the hangars for their first mission assignment. Looking over his shoulder at all the other Jedi embarking on ships, returning from missions of their own. A hub of galactic peace, in and out, busy keeping the galaxy safe.

That’ll be me someday.

Lance, at the conclusion of his Trials.

Jedi protect.

Jedi belong.

Lance is going to be a Jedi.


01. Lance and Hunk have been best friends since the days of the creche.

“Are we getting anywhere?” Lance asks, leaning on the engine. The sleeve of his robe swings down and nearly smacks Hunk in the face.
