i want to be that kind of person

10

This sweet little baby bean has touched my life. Born August 29th, 1958 and passed away June 25th, 2009.

Today marks the 8th anniversary of Michael’s passing and like most true fans, we mourn but we can still celebrate how wonderful and inspirational he is and was.

Michael Jackson is and will always be the King of Pop. He literally is a king too, King Sani in a tribal village in Africa! Jackson was always proud of his black heritage.

One of the things I love about him is his personality. He was misunderstood by many people (one thing in particular was his love for childlike things, but he always said that if you want to understand this, listen to his song “Childhood”). His personality people didn’t really understand. Jackson was a kind, gentle soul. His thoughts about music, life, and everything he spoke about or wrote about were expressed in a philosophical way. He was intelligent, humble, soft spoken, and very shy and grateful. He had a rich inner world (like a true introvert) and fans like myself always say: watch interviews to get a sense of who he really was!

Another thing I love about him is that he would show cultural appreciation in the things he did. He was all about embracing culture, individualism, love for each other, and the end of hate and ignorance. The epitome of what he was all about was to change the world for the better.

Michael really was a unique man. His attention to detail and his aesthetic-they contribute to why he’s such a legend. He was a genius and knew what would make people crave for more.
He reached global fame, one reason for his iconic dances. The moonwalk wasn’t invented by him but it definitely became his signature move. The Thriller dance, the “lean”, Billie Jean? He revolutionized dance. Another reason for his globalization is his philanthropy work. He donated $300 million dollars overall to 39 charities and holds the Guinness World Record for donated the most money as an entertainer. Everything he did was about raising global awareness through his music, his concerts, and videos. He created a scholarship, a foundation, and he’s created worldly renowned songs about encouraging people to help and take action to make the world better.

He really was a genuine entertainer. People had never seen anything like him-his outfits, his moves, his dances, and songs: they were all creative and inventive. Jackson’s carried on legacy reached global impact. The statues and memorabilia across the nation, the albums released after his death, and the reoccurring performances by impersonators carry on his spirit.

His albums: iconic. Thriller is known as the greatest album of all time. It went platinum in a week! Each song on it was literally a hit. It was #1 for 39 weeks; in the top 10 for 80 weeks! It was inducted into the Guinness Book of World Records for this. With his music, he received numerous awards and is known for winning 8 Grammys in 1984, which is also put in the Guinness Book of World Records. He’s actually in there 39 times! He’s won 26 American Music Awards, 13 Grammys, one of the few artists to be in the Rock in Roll Hall of Fame TWICE, 16 World Music Awards, has been honored by TWO Presidents of the United States, and many many more that I can’t name but because of all of the awards he’s won, he’s now dubbed the most awarded recording artist in the history of popular music.

All of his albums resonated with people. Jackson revolutionized the music industry, fashion, and dance with his innovative work and even paved the way for black artists. Say what you want about Michael Jackson but he is one of a kind. There will never be another Michael Jackson and nobody can deny his tremendous impact on the world.

Thank you Michael for blessing us with your creativity. You’ve touched this earth. You’re one of the most beautiful people to walk this planet (also literally because just look at him??).
I love you so much, I wish I could have met you or attended a concert but I’d say that seeing one of my favorite impersonators gave me closure.

Continue to Rest In Peace, angel.
And P.S. you may have been lonely sometimes but you were never truly lonely because you had us. You still do, always and forever.

Not friendly at all reminder that “you have to learn that not every person can be saved” is a garbage moral.

You, personally, are not obligated to save everyone you meet. But “some people just inherently cannot be saved, by you, themselves, or anyone” is garbage.

Can we please stop acting like pure evil irredeemable villains are novel or interesting. They’re not. They’re literally the norm, and they’re frequently absurd grotesque caricatures, often of mentally ill people and often of people who have experienced trauma.

I feel like I cannot make a post of any kind of even vaguely sympathetic read on any antagonistic character without at least one person jumping on the post like “but Clockie, can’t we just have someone with no morals, qualms, or sad backstory that we can just hate and watch the heroes demean and attack without any remorse?”

I really absolutely promise it is possible to feel bad for someone and want them to do better without justifying all of their behavior. It is actually completely possible to hold “you sure did kill that guy” and “you sure are coming from an awful place that hurt you a lot” at the same time without one devaluing the other.

Ravus and Luna Banter being siblings ?

I got another person who asked me about Ravus and Luna banter, so let’s go ahead and do dis! >:D

If Lunafreya and Ravus Were Party Members… (Banter)


Prompto: “Wow. The Oracle, Lady Lunafreya. Princess of Tenebrae…!”
Lunafreya: “Yes, Sir Prompto?”
Prompto: “And she calls me sir. Like a knight!”
Ravus: “Lunafreya, do not show him kindness. He will take advantage of it and lust for compliments.”
Prompto: “Rude…”

Gladiolus: “Little cramped back here…”
Noctis: “You think?”
Prompto: “I think Rae’s claw is digging into my thigh.”
Ravus: “Or rather, your thigh is digging into my claw.”
Lunafreya: “Are you all alright? Perhaps we should make a stop the car and readjust our positions…?”
Ignis: “Pay no mind to their suffering, Lady Lunafreya. They can sort it out themselves.”

Noctis: “Hey, you’re pretty good at handling a trident, Luna.”
Lunafreya: “Thank you, Prince Noctis. I have learned from the best, after all.”
Prompto: “Bet she’d be pretty good at handling-”
Ravus: “Finish that statement, and you will cease to have either head of yours, Argentum.”

Ignis: “Are things are as dire as the reports claim, Lady Lunafreya? We heard that the situation with Niflheim has only been escalating since Ravus’s escape.”
Lunafreya:
 “I am afraid it is. The Starscourge continues to spread, and the prophecy needs to be fulfilled. Now more than ever.”
Gladiolus: “That’s alot of weight to carry, that’s for sure…”
Lunafreya: “It is… But that is why I will do whatever I may to aid Prince Noctis fulfilling his duty. That is, if he will allow me to travel with you all.”
Noctis: “Of course I’d allow it, Luna. You’re always welcome with us.”
Lunafreya: “Oh! I did not meant your approval, Noctis. I meant my brother’s.”
Ravus: “And I am giving this endeavor second thoughts with each passing second…”

Lunafreya: “Oh! Dear Ravus! Did you notice the bakery that we passed by? The strawberry cake looked delicious, and-”
Ravus: “You purchased a cake there, didn’t you?”
Lunafreya: “…It looked delightful, though.”
Ravus: “…I at least hope that you plan on sharing a slice with me, Lunafreya.”
Prompto:
 “Ooh, cake?! Can I have some?”
Ravus: “No.”

Gladiolus: “So where exactly is Luna going to sleep anyways…? It’s hard enough having five guys in a tent together.”
Lunafreya: “Oh! I will be satisfactory enough sleeping outside of the tent. I would simply need a blanket and-“
Ravus & Ignis: “Most certainly not.”
Prompto: “She could just sleep in the tent with us! We can bundle up.”
Ravus & Noctis: “Hell no.”
Lunafreya: “…Perhaps I should just let you all decide. I am find with whatever you decide.”

Lunafreya: “Sir Prompto, what were the lyrics of that song that you sang earlier?”
Prompto: “Which one? I can sing any song you like!”
Lunafreya: “It is a song about… Birds? Riding a bird, I think!”
Prompto: “Oh! ‘I want to ride my chocobo all day~’”
Lunafreya: “Yes! That is the song! Now that you know the lyrics, you can sing it for me. Right, dear Ravus?”
Ravus: “I never agreed to this…”

Noctis: “So, uh… Luna. Did you my reply…? In the book, I mean.”
Lunafreya: “I did yes! Did you get my response in return.”
Noctis: “Your response…? No.”
Ravus: “But I did, Lunafreya. How long has this exchange been occurring, by the way, and when were you going to discuss this matter with me?”
Noctis: “Shit…”

Ravus: “Lunafreya! Are you alright? Did the daemons bring you any harm?”
Lunafreya: “No, I am fine, Ravus!”
Gladiolus: “Pretty sure she was kicking ass when you weren’t looking, Ravus.”
Lunafreya: “Indeed! Though my dress is stained with dirt and daemon blood now…”
Ravus: “The struggle to maintain white attire is one you will get to understand well, Lunafreya…”
Lunafreya: “One we shall master in the end, I am sure.”

Gladiolus: “So how come Luna’s sunshine and rainbows and Ravus is all…”
Noctis: “Doom and gloom?”
Prompto: “Death and despair?”
Lunafreya: “Grumpy faces and brooding…?”
Ravus: “Lunafreya, please…”

Ok so do any of you guys remember that jercy fic i wrote a while back? the one with ace jason? i was thinking of making some more stuff in that universe, would anyone be interested??

The style will probably be different because that one was just kind of an emotion dump and would be closer to “normal” fic style but it’ll still be mostly focusing on Jason learning more about himself and his asexuality and his relationship with Percy and all that fun stuff

The Isis Project - Part 2

About 95% done, but I couldn’t wait to share pics of my Isis repaint. It’s a little too sunny out, causing the gold in the finished version to get kind of washed-out, but it looks pretty good in person.

(You can get the background here, if you want all the info.) This project ended up being much bigger than I had anticipated. If I had known beforehand how much bigger, I’m not certain that I would have begun it.

Although the statue is 15″ x 20″, I used acrylic paints normally used for wargaming miniatures. Expensive, but I knew I liked them and I was extremely invested in the success of this project. The gold was difficult because it took three coats for it to look at all decent. (The gold paint looks yellow in the after photos, but in person it looks more metallic.) The feathers were also very time-consuming because there were so finely-carved. I’m not totally satisfied with the gold, but it does look better IRL than how it looks in the photo. The sunny day washed it out and flattened it a little.

There were some days that I was completely exhausted after my painting efforts. I honestly used up all my spoons on this project on some days. It’s not as neat as I’d like it to be (you can see some of my sloppiness in the photos, and there’s a bunch you can’t see), but I’m not a pro painter. I still need to touch up some things and put another coat of black and gold on the base, but I’m pretty pleased with how it came out.


Part one is here.

Lol…omg…this is the conversation that just happened while walking back to the condo from the beach!

Husband: I know what kind of fanfiction you’re writing. It’s Namekians. *puts hands together and claps quickly to make sex sounds*

Me: *laughs out loud* “Shh! No!” *both continue laughing*

Husband: 50 Shades of Nameki…50 Shades of GREEN!

Me: *dying of laughter*

Husband: I know that’s what you like baby…You want to climb that bean stalk. *sings* Green giant! Oh..oh..oh!!!

Me: That’s not what I’m writing!

Husband: *sings again* Green giant! Oh..oh..oh!

*we’re still laughing*

Husband: When we get back to the condo, I think I’m going to play Fallout 4 again while you write you’re Namekian porn!

Me: LOL OH MY GOD!!!

Husband: If you use 50 Shades of Green for the title, you have to credit me. And I want my pen name to be Ronald McDonald.

And I still can’t stop laughing…

I finally saw the video and I think the person was being intentionally disrespectful. Was the point to try and prove that she’s homophobic? Because I think anyone with a little bit of common sense can see that she was just caught off guard and little confused. But also rushed because there were lots of people there who ARE her fans that she wanted to hug and take pictures with and thank.

I think the person who planned the confrontation, surprised Jen, and then posted the video in the hopes of embarrassing Jen only managed to embarrass herself. Some really good stuff did come out of it tho … I have seen lots of Swen speak out against this person’s behavior in the video. Sure, there are those who are applauding it but the response I’ve seen from much of the fandom as a whole is that this kind of thing is NOT okay.

I’ve also seen people reach out from plenty of ships to support fandom etiquette and that is always nice to see. The actors are not toys for the fandom to use. They are employees (or former employees) of ABC/OUAT and they all did a job.

It’s nice to see the majority of the OUAT fandom condemn this behavior. Hopefully that response will make people think twice before they try something like that again in the hopes that they will become a “fandom celebrity” of sorts. 

Meet the actors because you WANT to, not because you want to gain followers. 

Watching Lainey’s new video and just…wtf. He told a 17 year old he loved her literally a few weeks (days?) Into their “relationship” (they were only texting).

As a side by side, when Jay and I started “talking” we agreed we had to meet in person before becoming official (we had kind of known each other from my old high school, but wanted to make sure we had chemistry). At the time I was living in a different country. About two months later, after talking every day, I moved back and we met up. It took another 5-6 months before we said we loved each other and another 6 months before he proposed. And I thought that was fast. No wonder her family was concerned. Lainey and Greg moved wayyyy too fast. He’s such a creep.

As an edit: Greg was about 26? 27? And Lainey was 17. Vs me and jay. I was 17 and he was 19 (20 when he proposed about five days before my 18th). Another fun fact: Jay and I have been a couple longer than Lainey and Greg.

Wait,I'm a little lost. What is a Dullahan?

According to Google: “The Dullahan /duːˈləhɑːˌn/ is a headless rider, usually on a black horse who carries his or her own head under one arm. Usually, the Dullahan is male, but there are some female versions. The head and the mouth is usually in a hideous grin that touches both sides of the head.”

so… yeah, they’re kind of like urban legends?

anonymous asked:

Hi, if you are still answering 19 days questions...I was wondering who you think is a more morning person and night owl etc. Hope you are feeling better!!

hi, anon!! yes, of course im still answering 19 days questions!! or any kind of questions and messages, really, even if you just feel like talking to someone about how your day went, or scream about your favourite character, im here for that too!! it might take me some time to reply (like this time, sorry;;;;) because my life is a bit of a mess right now, and when i finally manage to be around i never have the time to do everything i have to, but i do try my best to get back to everyone, so please don’t hesitate to send me stuff if you feel like it!!

anyway, moving on to your question!!

jian yi is definitely not a morning person (same, jian yi, same): this is canon, and i can easily imagine jian yi staying up until late to watch a show he likes or some funny videos on youtube while he eats a lot of midnight snacks, or maybe pulling an all nighter to study or do homeworks he forgot were due for the next day. i also think it might be a habit he developed during childhood, when he probably stayed up way past bed time to wait for his mom to come home from work, and now he just can’t sleep if he goes to bed too early

zheng xi, on the other hand, is the complete opposite: i feel like he’s the kind of person who always tries to go to bed at the same hour every night so he can get at least eight hours of sleep and doesn’t function very well if he can’t. he doesn’t like to sleep in, tho, and he usually wakes up early to take a shower and have a proper breakfast before going to school, and in the future i can also see him going out to take a run while jian yi is still asleep in their bed. he can’t concentrate well in the evening, so he usually never studies until late unless he really has to

as for he tian and guan shan, i’ve been wondering about them for a while tbh, and after changing my mind a lot, now i definitely think that he tian is more of a night owl: we’ve always seen him smoking during the day, especially in the morning, and he does seem to be particularly active in the evenings, but even if these were just coincidences, i feel like it fits his character pretty well. and okay, this is just me, but i love the idea of he tian having really terrible bed head and not being able to wake up properly until he has at least one cup of coffee, a cigarette, and, in the future, a kiss from guan shan

guan shan is still the hardest for me to figure out, mostly because i can’t see him being particularly active in the morning, but at the same time i don’t think he is the type to stay up all night either?? i think he likes sleeping too much to do that, so right now i’d say he is a…..hummingbird? is that the right term? like, one of those people who’s neither a morning person or a night owl, but something in between. i feel like guan shan is more alert and active during the afternoon, and doesn’t have any particular pattern when it comes to which hour he goes to sleep and wakes up

okay, this got really long as usual, so, tl;dr: jian yi and he tian are night owls, zheng xi is a morning person, and guan shan is probably neither??

MTL to share small kisses/pecks with their best friend

Anon said: Hey!^^ could you do a bts MTL reaction to who’d share small kisses/pecks with their best friend?❤😊 

Taehyung- Taehyung is a very touchy feely kind of person and I think that if he were very close to you then he wouln’t mind

Hoseok- I think that Hoseok is similar to Taehyung but I think he would be more reserved.

Yoongi- I can see Yoongi either not really caring or he would want to save this act of affection only for his lover. He can go either way with this. Idk for sure.

Jimin- Jimin is a shy squish sometimes. I think if you guys were very close then MAYBE he wouldn’t mind.

Jungkook- I feel like Jungkook would be too shy for this and also a little awkward even though the kiss isn’t meant to be romantic.

Namjoon- I feel like he would be more like a brother to his best friend so it may be awkward or weird for him.

Seokjin- I feel like Jin would want to save kisses only for his significant other and in my opinion he can be pretty shy.

Thank you for requesting! Please send more requests <3

Man I like Corrin a lot. I know Corrin is the fucking worst lord ever but like. What little personality Corrin has I like, and how fanon takes on it make Corrin this intensely emotional loving person who is really kind and giggly. Also Corrin’s design is like one of my favorites in the series ever. The armor and hair and the dragon fang shit is sick as hell. The bare feet are weird but so is Corrin. Probably threw a fit too big for Gunter to argue with them about it. Looks back on it and is embarassed but just hates that shit. Anyway I like Corrin. They’re dumb but I like em

Maglor thoughts

I’ve been trying to pin down why I so much don’t want Maglor to wander the world forever alone and be rejected by all his kin (and Elrond).  I think I worked it out. It’s not because I want him to be excused (although I think there are arguments to be made in terms of excuses.)  It’s because I want him to be able to be forgiven

I don’t want Elves to be the kind of people who can never forgive, no matter how long it takes.   I don’t want Middle-earth to stop at the end of the Silmarillion, with Maedhros burned and Maglor alone, or after the Akallabeth, with an angry god who takes revenge.   If you have people who are bound within the world and can’t leave it ever, (and have perfect memories too!) then refusing to forgive forever seems so terrible: not only for the person who needs forgiveness, but for everyone… 

I really, really want the story to go on to the Scouring of the Shire, and Frodo refusing to kill other hobbits or the Big Men, and even trying to let Saruman go free.   The Scouring of the Shire is so important! 

@kingsandthieves Yes, yes, this!! people tend to look at characters with very specific qualities and stereotype them but like,, real people are so much more diverse than that—and the writers had already said that they want to represent all the different kinds of people out there, that that would be the point of including lgbt characters in the first place.

One thing about me I want to get out there is that I’m a major sap. Like, if you started interacting with me, I’m sure you noticed I followed you back pretty darn fast because I went “POTENTIAL FRIEND”.

Whether we wind up just kind of reblogging things from each other, pass pleasantries every once in awhile, or actually wind up chatting IRT fairly frequently I start recognizing and knowing the names/avatars of people.

Fandom is usually what causes me to meet a person, but if I chat with someone on the regular, that sort of becomes irrelevant as I get attached to the individual. 

Basically… I like to know if a relationship is based more on mutual interests that could easily poof in an instant if those change or if we have a deep connection where we’ll be pals even if we wind up getting into things the other has zero interest in.

It still kind of hurts thinking about those “friendships” I had only because a person wanted something out of me like learning to use proxies and where to buy things. Another time it was because of the ideas I had and they quickly discarded me once they were over that fandom, despite the fact we had talked nearly every single day for over a year.

I AM SENSITIVE AND LATCH ONTO PEOPLE. ><

I got an early birthday present today and I am so incredibly excited!! I am absolutely shocked! This person was so kind to think of me! I love the box and the sparkly mickey mouse stickers. And all the little details that went into the card. Owning a Kate Spade purse has been a goal of mine for some time now. I’ve never told anyone except my boyfriend. It’s one of those things where I’m like “maybe in 5 years when I become a real adult and I can afford extra things I want a Kate Spade!” I know it’s materialistic. But hey, ya girl had a childhood of very little luxuries. I appreciate everything I have. I seriously started to tear up when my boyfriend told me that someone in his family got me a gift.
Why am i posting this?
I dont know. I’m just really happy right now and I feel so special and loved. Someone actually thought of me. That means the most to me. The fact that someone went out and looked around for something that they thought I’d like. I dont care how much. I dont care if it was a bag of hot cheetos. Still, knowing that someone cared and thought of me is such a huge deal to me.
I am so appreciative ❤️

Hey everyone! It’s been a little while

I just wanted to share with you the fact that I just made a new blog: @totakeke-lyrics! It’s pretty much a blog whose primary aim will be to compile transcripted gibberish lyrics for all 91 K.K. Slider songs!

If you’re an animal crossing fan, I’d really appreciate if you could check it out, and sing along to some songs with K.K. ❤️❤️ so far i only have 3 songs up but all the others are on the way! thank you C:

btw, it’s likely i’ll be semi-active on this blog again during the summer holidays! anyways you have a great day!
