i still don't understand why he didn't just say so when he was answering my question though

Why The Types Are Problematic
  • ISTP: When you're under emotional distress or just plain upset you literally just shut down and don't talk to people??? I said hi to one of you, whose one of my best friends, after he had a fight with his fiancé and he just ignored me and walked past like wtf I am a person you emotionally constipated butthole.
  • ESTP: No regard for human life, especially your own. Plus you won't stop talking about how we should all go out when you know damn well I'm broke af.
  • INFP: Your fake-mean jokes aren't jokes at all and are real-mean because you're bitter about something they did, like, 5 months ago, god becky just move on already.
  • ENFP: You're putting your family through bankruptcy because you won't stop buying things online because your self-control is as feeble as your ability to keep secrets you haphazard deadbeat.
  • ISTJ: You tried to be the fun one for once and ruined the party because you're awkward.
  • ESTJ: You won't stop asking clarifying questions; like the question you're asking was gonna be answered in maybe 6 seconds but you didn't have the patience to wait and find out and I crave death because of it.
  • ISFJ: You're a basic bitch and we all know it.
  • ESFJ: You're the most clueless people I've ever met and yet you have the audacity to call everybody else weird.
  • INFJ: "I'm fine!" sayin' asses expecting everybody to know you're not...And stop pretending y'all ain't anything but weeaboo nerds who've seen every anime there ever was.
  • ENFJ: Every person whose ever said "I can never get typed right, I'm too balanced." or "I switch letters so much I don't really know" always ends up being ENFJ when typed correctly and I will fight anybody who says otherwise.
  • INTP: You won't stop explaining your logic behind something even though we've already told four times that we understand.
  • ENTP: You say insane crap you don't actually believe just to see people's reactions.
  • ISFP: You unironically like and talk about SuperWhoLock you nasty bitch.
  • ESFP: You're super weird but everybody still loves you and it pisses me off. That's probably makes me the problematic one, but there's also a strong chance that your alcoholic...so...
  • INTJ: Get off reddit and stop playing so many video games you freak.
  • ENTJ: Okay but I shouldn't have to say anything for the ENTJ's because you are all the single most problematic type in almost every single conceivable way, and if you don't know that yet, that's part of the reason why you are.

If you're feeling up to it.... request? Cherry on top? Girls night at a cabin (Caroline, Bonnie, Katherine, and Rebekah) retreat and the boys interrupt the evening festivities. Which sucks because now they are all stuck inside a one bedroom cabin + pull out couch during a blizzard. Whatever shenanigans ensue is totally up to you! :)

I am so freaking sorry, for one taking so long, and two for…wtv this is. I didn’t know how to go about it, but I needed to just write something and post it, or I’d go insane, so this came out and it looks half-assed and bad and I don’t like it, and you’ll probably be disappointed (lord knows you deserve better) but at least I did it…? My advice to you, is send this prompt to a better writer haha But I hope you’ll manage to like some of it? Thanks for sending me this prompt tho!!

Girl’s Retreat Gone Wrong

The cabin was warm and peaceful, - the fireplace mesmerizing if you looked into it for too long - while outside the snow started falling fiercely and relentlessly. It only made the room that much more comfortable. So far none of them were fighting - well, they weren’t physically fighting at least - but instead were drinking and somehow enjoying each other’s company.

“We should play never have I ever.” Katherine suggested, sipping on her vodka.

“You and Rebekah have probably done everything, how would that be any fun for you?” Bonnie asked confused.

“I assume the fun part would be that we’d get to drink every time and find out some of your secrets. Not that I enjoy understanding how Katherine’s brain works.”

“Oh Rebekah, I’m honored, you truly know me so well. Maybe later I’ll get to know you better too.” Katherine flirted, licking her lips in anticipation, and in return getting a dirty glare from Rebekah.

TRIGGER WARNING! TRIGGER WARNING! TRIGGER WARNING!


Izuku Midoriya

When Izuku Midoriya was having a blast tickling you and making you laugh, he didn’t expect to hear you wince when he accidentally hit your arm. He instantly stopped, ready to apologize when he saw cuts peeking out from under your long sleeve. Midoriya froze upon seeing them, all he could do was stare at your arms.

With wide eyes, you hurriedly got out from under him and stood up. You pulled the sleeves back down and refused to look at him, scared of what you might see. You heard him stand up, but you still didn’t look.

“Y/n,” there was that voice. The voice that made it sound like he expected more from you and somehow you had let him down all over again.

“I’m sorry,” you whispered, “I’m sorry I’m a disappointment.”

“Y/n, no,” his hand held your cheek,“you’re not a disappointment. Hey, you can get through this. You can do it, I have faith in you. Plus, I’ll be right by your side. You’re not alone, I’m right here. I’ll always be right here.”

You wrapped your arms around his torso and started crying into his warm chest. He wrapped his own arms around you, tightening the hug.

A few minutes passed and you heard him whisper, “Why? Why this time?”

Midoriya was questioning if he had failed on being there for you, if he hadn’t done enough. Was he too busy to notice you were crashing again? Did he miss all the signs?

“I-I don’t know,” you answered, because you didn’t. You didn’t know why you did it, you just had to. You needed to.

“Y/n, you can tell me anything,” he whispered and you got out of the hug.

“You wouldn’t understand, no one ever does,” you looked at the ground.

“But I can try to! You never know, I might understand,” he wanted so desperately to make you feel better, to see you happy again.

You looked up at him. Would he understand your pain and suffering? Would he get what you’re going through? You wanted to tell him, but you didn’t want to disappoint him. In the end, you decided that it’d be better to just let it all out.

“Do you ever feel so broken that you’re not sure you’ll get better again? Do you ever feel so lost that you think you’ll never find your way again? Do you ever feel so alone that you start thinking it’ll always be like that? Do you ever feel so useless, so worthless, that you start wondering why you’re even alive? Do you ever hate yourself so much that you’d rather just not exist anymore? Do you?” you stared at him as he looked down.

Tears stained your precious cheeks as you continued on, “Because I do. All the damn time. And sometimes, sometimes it’s too much for me and I don’t know what to do anymore because crying and screaming doesn’t seem to do anything. And telling yourself that you have to be happy only makes things worse. I’m sorry but the only thing that does help me, is this. No matter how many times I’ve tried to stop, or how many times I wish I stopped, I always, always, come back to this.”

Midoriya instantly pulled you to his chest and held you in a tight embrace. He wished you could make all your worries disappear so you could be as happy as can be, but since he couldn’t, he wanted to let you know that he was there for you. He was there for you and wasn’t planning on going anywhere any time soon.

He was going to stay by your side until you were feeling better again, even if it meant postponing his future.

Shouto Todoroki
“Y/n, are you feeling okay? You keep looking at your arms,” Todoroki asked as you both sat on the couch.

Your eyes widened and you quickly replied, “Yes! I’m fine! Don’t worry about me!”

He gave you a suspicious look but decided not to press any further for the time being. He’d do something about it when you weren’t being so cautious or defensive.

It took a bit but you were finally so distracted by the television that you hadn’t noticed Todoroki get closer and closer. It wasn’t until he grabbed your hand that you noticed, but it was already too late because he carefully pulled the sleeve down.

You instantly looked up at his face to see his reaction. He was blankly staring at your arms. He didn’t know what to do or even what to say. He was doing his best to keep his face emotionless as to not worry you.

You looked down, preparing yourself for the look of utter disappointment he was going to give you. You knew he thought more of you, he believed you could move on from this dark part of your life. The only problem being that you didn’t believe that, you felt like you’d be trapped in the darkness forever, like there was no way out.

There were a countless number of times you tried to find a way out of the darkness, a way into the light the rest of the world seemed to enjoy. When you failed, you tried again, and again, and again, but you always found yourself in the same place you started.

“Y/n,” you heard Todoroki start, “what’s wrong? You can tell me anything.”

You knew that and you wanted so much to tell him everything. The thing was, you didn’t exactly know what was wrong. You’d been happier lately, but then out of nowhere it hit you. Your whole body started to tremble and you collapsed on the ground. You cried and cried, you didn’t know why, you just did. You felt like the darkness was dragging you back and drag you back it did.

Now you were here, your eyes squeezed shut as you responded to Todoroki’s question, “I don’t know. I don’t know what’s wrong.”

You heard Todoroki sigh right before he pulled you into a tight embrace, “Don’t worry Y/n. Everything is going to be okay, I’ll make sure of it.”

You wanted to believe him, to believe that everyone was going to be okay and that things were going to get better. You would’ve believed it if there wasn’t something in the back of your mind telling you it was all a lie, that things would always be like this.

Your thoughts caused you to break down again and you sobbed into Todoroki’s chest. He held you like that for what felt like hours, all while reminding you that he was there for you and that he wasn’t planning on going anywhere. He repeated that things were going to be okay, that in the end this would all be in the past.

The way he spoke made you believe that things really would be okay. Todoroki even promised you they would, and he was the type to keep his word.

Double Agent Vader fic: Trickster Steals the Moon

I’ve been wanting to write something like this for a while, and finally did it: a fic that’s half Ekkreth trickster-tale, and half Anakin’s history as a double agent, where the stories interconnect and Anakin’s actions exist within the sacred tradition of storytelling.

For this one, we’re going back in time a bit. This is set almost immediately after Optimal Functioning, and just before ANH.

The myth in this is the origin story for the holy week of Marokkepu, of which Maru is the central hero. Her name means “water,” and she’s considered one of the great prophets.

I’m blaming this one on @nimblermortal, who may or may not know why.

Trickster Steals the Moon

There are as many Ekkreth stories as there are slaves on Tatooine, which is to say, there are stories without number, and more every day.

This is one of them.

anonymous asked:

Jen can you please explain what's happening with Ed right now. I don't think he owes those people that money, it's his song! Didn't he say he wrote Photograph a long time ago and these peple are just now noticing it?? It doesnt make sense, he shouldn't have to pay!!!! Ed Sheeran is a genius he doesn't need to steal songs from people who are less famous than him. I will never believe he stole it

Hey. First let me just say that for anyone who hasn’t seen the entertainment headlines today, a lawsuit has been filed against Ed Sheeran and Johnny McDaid regarding the song Photograph. They are being sued for allegedly plagiarizing a song written by songwriters Martin Harrington and Thomas Leonard in 2009 called Amazing, which was recorded and released by Matt Cardle in 2012. You can listen to Matt singing the song right [here]. More details about the lawsuit can be found in [this Billboard article] or [here in USA Today]. From what I understand, Harrington and Leonard are seeking $20 million plus future royalties from Photograph, as well as statutory damages and part of the profits from the sale of Polar Patrol Music Publishing. 

As far as not believing Ed and Johnny stole the music, I’m right there with you. These guys are totally on the up and up and more than willing to give credit where it’s due. I mean, just check the liner notes for songs like Afire Love and Don’t. All samples have been properly credited. If they’d wanted to use someone else’s music in Photograph, they would definitely have contacted the appropriate people and asked for permission and paid accordingly. I fully, 100% believe there has been no intentional theft here.

That being said… it’s impossible to see inside someone’s brain, you know? You can never be sure what a person may have heard once before and then stored subconsciously. I know Ed and Johnny would never try to pass off someone else’s work as their own, but I can also see how it’s possible that they heard it once, forgot about it, and later worked it out on a guitar or piano and fully believed it was original. So even though I know without a doubt that these guys would never try to cheat someone on purpose, you also can’t prove they’d never heard the other song before, which means you can’t prove it never influenced their writing by accident. 

That’s why so many cases like this feel like bullshit to me. There’s literally no way you can win them. Even if Ed and Johnny really never heard the other song before (and let’s be honest, most people haven’t heard it before) and they just happened to come up with a similar chorus by coincidence - which I believe is totally possible because if something sounds good, it’s going to sound good to lots of people, so there’s no reason to believe only one person could ever come up with it and write it down, on top of which Photograph uses a chord progression that’s actually very common in pop music - there’s still no way to prove they’d never heard the other song and been influenced by it. All they could say is they don’t remember hearing it before. And that kind of argument doesn’t mean a whole lot in copyright suits, even when it’s the truth. 

Ed has said that he wrote Photograph with Johnny while on tour with Snow Patrol between March and May of 2012. Matt Cardle released Amazing in February of 2012. So Photograph was written at least one month after Amazing was being played on radio stations in the UK. It’s still completely possible they never heard it - after all, they were in the US at the time and radio stations here were not playing it, and it didn’t chart very high elsewhere - but unfortunately the argument can’t be made that there’s no way they heard it and were influenced by it. Which sucks.

You can listen to Ed talking about the process for writing Photograph (and the different people who helped with it) in [this video] filmed for VH1 Storytellers.

To answer your question about Harrington and Leonard just now noticing the similarities, I’m not sure that’s the case here. The suit was only filed today, but there’s really no telling how long they’ve been working with their lawyer on getting the complaint together. These things can take a very long time to play out. (To use an unrelated example, my brother was arrested a full two years and 3 months before his trial. Slow legal system is slow.) And before filing a public complaint, Harrington and Leonard claim to have attempted to settle privately. It may be that they noticed the song within minutes of its release. Chances are that Ed has known this was coming for a good long while now.

Honestly, I don’t think Ed and Johnny are going to come out of this without having to pay something. God, I hate it for them. I really do believe the similarities in the two songs are a coincidence or at the very least entirely unintentional, and it doesn’t seem fair at all for them to have to pay a couple of strangers for the success they’ve had, when it feels like those strangers had no hand in it. And it absolutely doesn’t seem fair for Harrington and Leonard to be seeking ALL of the song’s profits! Geez, even Ed and Johnny didn’t get all the profits. 

They’re claiming that the chorus of Photograph is 70% plagiarized, and the chorus is what, maybe half the song? That works out to Harrington and Leonard together claiming responsibility for about 35% of the song’s music - and none of the lyrics. So if lyrics and music are worth the same amount (I don’t know if they are or not) then they’ve only contributed 17.5% of the whole song. Record companies are generally obliged to pay songwriters $0.091 for every copy of a song that is sold, which means that at most, Harrington and Leonard together shouldn’t be given more than about $0.016 (or just over one and a half cents) per copy for “writing” that portion of the song. Or if you want to think about it as a percentage of $20 million, their portion of the chorus of the song altogether only made about $7 million, so they shouldn’t get any more than what a composer’s cut of that $7 million would be, and that doesn’t seem like it would amount to very much once you take into account everyone else who would also be getting cuts of it for their individual contributions. 

I don’t know. I don’t know very much at all about how money works within the music industry, but if you look at the whole thing logically, it doesn’t seem like these guys have any right to ask for $20 million. But I guess you have to ask for a lot in order to see how much you can get. :/ I certainly don’t expect them to get that much, though, and I think it will be an utter failure of the legal system if they do. If you remember the lawsuit against Pharrell and Robin Thicke about Blurred lines, Marvin Gaye’s family originally sued them for $25 million and were only awarded $5.3 million, about a fifth of what they asked. If the same thing happens with Photograph, that would work out to Harrington and Leonard getting about $4 million (although that still seems like way too much to me). 

It sucks hardcore for Ed to have to deal with this whole mess, but even though it sounds awful for someone to be accused of plagiarism, I don’t really think this will have a negative effect on his career. Tons of famous musicians have gone through the exact same thing - notably, they’ve all lost or settled and had to pay damages and royalties - and that hasn’t stopped anyone from continuing to be successful if they’re good at what they do, which Ed definitely is. The boy’s in good company! Like, I believe Sam Smith didn’t intentionally plagiarize Tom Petty, but he settled over Stay With Me, and he still seems to be doing pretty well, right? And no one ever says, “I refuse to listen to so-and-so’s music because it sounds too much like this other really good music which I also like.” He won’t be losing fans over this, so I feel like he’s still good to go, and the only place to go is up.

Ed will be fine. (Frustrated I’m sure, but fine nonetheless.) He’s recording new material in Africa right now and that’s so exciting! I think that once the civil suit is over, everyone will be so busy loving his new music that this whole thing will be forgotten soon enough. And hey, maybe the experience will generate another new verse for YNMIDNY. :)
