i wonder if this has been posted sometime

infernaldolphins  asked:

im really interested about cheer and im wondering if you have any cool trivia about him

I’ve been posting all my Citygods stuff on Patreon for months now…uuuhhhh here lemme grab some little previews!

Cheer was born of fear and has yet to settle on something to be “god of”.  Here he is emerging from the ashes of the hospital fire that caused all the fear that made him:

So he has a kind of fiery/ashy theme going on.

He doesn’t know all the words for things and can sometimes sound kind of childlike when he talks.

And he has a rocky relationship with the head of the local pantheon, a goddess of justice and law enforcement named Badge!

Uuuuhhhhh other stuff…  He’s a real sweetheart!  His avatar (human spokesperson) is an anxious college student named Georgia!  He can’t heal or take away pain but he can supply strength to work through it!  He never turns down a prayer!

Hope that counts as cool trivia, haha. @v@

surprise! i’m not dead

I’m sorry for my long unannounced and unexplained absence- School has been absolutely overwhelming, as i’m in the IB diploma program as some of you noticed from my math book. Life is wild and crazy and unpredictable and you never know when you’re gonna find a caterpillar or be kicked down the stairs of academia

for those wondering chicken nugget is no longer in my care, i freed him august 2016 and hes somewhere in that great big ol world as well in my heart. tears were shed and i miss him but sometimes you gotta let things live their own lives to be happy

The finished post is > here < for those of you who haven’t seen its tearful conclusion and additional chicken nugget posts can be found in my > tag < and @chicken-nugget-appreciation (which isnt run by me btw! my friend @gummiebearz does it and i am so thankful for him and i love him)

for those of you who have sent me so many asks and messages I’m so sorry i will get to responding as soon as i can

I’ll also make an faq soon

Translation: “Noragami” Chapter 74 Preview (SPOILERS!!)

So, it looks like the chapter is out…however, it’s past midnight already so the summary will have to wait until morning (I tend to make stupid mistakes when I’m tired, so better get some sleep first).  HOWEVER, there was one page in particular that was SOOOO sweet I had to post with a translation.  Seriously guys, spoilers.

Preview after the cut:

It has been quite a while since I posted an update on my Raúl Esparza collection. 110 drawings and counting!! (not all of them are in this collage though) I never realize how many they are until I put them together like this.

Tbh, I don’t think I would’ve been able to make that many without my wonderful friends and fans here in the fandom. Sometimes I think I’m not good or artistic enough and sometimes when I look at other people’s art on various plattforms, I feel insecure. But then I remember why I’m doing this. Not to compete with others, but to honor the man who inspires me so much and brightens even my darkest days. God gave me a gift. I might use it differently than others, but I use it the best way I can. And I use it to make other people happy. Everytime I get a message from someone, saying that my art makes their days, makes them smile, I feel like I’m doing the right thing. I tell you something. I’ve been the black sheep and an outsider my whole life. But your amazing response to my works makes me feel that I am someone special - for the very first time in my life. And now I met Raúl and he has my art. He has all of the ones above and I when I gave them to him, I gave him a piece of my heart. These drawings are ME. All my feelings, all my emotions, all my love, all my fears. And because I also made these drawings for YOU and because of you, he has a piece of you as well. We are a big family full of wonderful people, artists, writers, gif-makers, etc. and I love to draw for you and Raúl with all my heart. ❤
Sometimes I still wonder about your favorite color, your favorite song, what you’re into nowadays. You used to tell me so many stories about your life and I wonder those things still happen you. You were always there to help me and you always supported me. I miss all of our inside jokes and the weird things we did at recess. I miss having you as my other half. I really miss you being a part of my life. But if you would allow me, you know I’ll always welcome you back with open arms.
—  The letter I never sent you..

IMPORTANT TO READ:


Hello. Many of you know me, my name is Millie and I have this nice blog where I’ve met a lot of wonderful people. Sometimes I feel really thankful for this platform, tumblr has been a great experience for me. However, I’ve decided to write this post and try to help my wonderful friend, who really is struggling a lot at the moment.

She lives in poor living conditions - her family home is very small and old, the walls of her home have started to fall down and it doesn’t even have a roof. The house is loaded with mold, wet walls because of broken pipes and unhealthy air to breathe. Her mom doesn’t have a job and has been unable to find one for quite a long period of time now and her dad has a part-time job.  She is in the 4th year of high school and barely no one knows her story, that’s why I’m not revealing her identity. Here, in the winter time, temperature can drop under -20 degrees C and having wood, blankets and fabric plastic as a roof is not much of a help!

I’ve discussed this with another wonderful friend of mine and we are going to do our best to help and raise some money, because hey - it’s great to be humane! We had already done some research and we found several used houses with very good living conditions, for the minimal price.

Our goal is to raise $35.000 to buy this modest and wonderful family a proper home to live in! And that we cannot do without your help!

Our wish for this post is to reach as many people as possible. Our ideal way of achieving this goal is to reach 35.000+ people who would donate only $1. Every cent will be appreciated from top to bottom of our hearts.

If you are able to help, in any way, please send your $1 donation to the paypal account we made for this specific case.

Paypal: loveandhumanity@outlook.com

I will continue to share this post through my blog and youtube. I will kindly ask you, with a lot of love, to reblog and share this post, you never know how many people your post might reach. $1 is just the first step of creating the whole road.

Christmas is slowly approaching and just imagine this family having this big gift that we all have created together. I will keep you all updated! Thank you very much for your help and time, and please, share. ♥

Been a while... couple of questions for the masses...

I am considering sharing more about myself via this blog, as I feel that perhaps putting a name and face to it could possibly make everything I’ve shared more relatable. I feel an urge to help others, and as much as I think this blog has been a good resource, I sometimes wonder if I could do more with it.

I am also tempted to put a name and face to my ramblings for selfish reasons, as I have come to realise I have been living in shame and no longer want to. And for me this blog is an easy doorway into being more honest. I’ve been doing a lot of soul searching, as may become clear in future posts.

I’m looking for arguments from people for and against.
If you have decided to suddenly not be ‘stealth’ anymore has it been beneficial to your life? Or do you regret it?

Is there any point to adding more about myself to this blog? Or should it remain what it is, which is essentially a diary of events of one circumstance?

You’re in love with him

and he’s in love with you

and it’s like a goddamn tragedy

because you look at him and see the stars

 and he looks at you and sees the sun

And you both think the other is just looking at the ground

Sometimes Sebastian and Ciel ice skate at the frozen lakes around their palace. Ciel is usually clumsy with his movements, but Sebastian is always there to hold his hands and guide him across the slippery surface.
But just so you know occasionally both of them slip and fall onto the ground because Sebastian sometimes loses his balance too.

Your Call Cannot Be Completed As Dialed -  

AU in which Castiel accidentally sends a text message to the wrong number and befriends the person at the other end of the line. However, accidents don’t just happen accidentally, and sometimes two completely different people are exactly what the other needs.

@hesanangelwithashotgun​ and I thank you very much for sticking with this story for all of these years and for the tens of thousands of views. This was a first time writing fanfiction for both of us so thank you for the support. It has officially been a year since the posting of the latest chapter and in case anyone was still wondering, there won’t be another. We thought that we’d be able to wrap up a few things with one last chapter but due to life circumstances, we won’t be. As is, the story feels complete so we apologize for promises of a final chapter that we didn’t follow through on. 

Anyway, I’d also like to thank the lovely @cheriiart that did a commission from me PROBABLY A YEAR AGO so thank you so much for that! (Honestly look at this art. It’s incredible.)

TAG SOMEONE THAT MIGHT NEED TO BE REMINDED THAT GOD IS STILL WRITING THEIR STORY!

Posting this late at night because I know sometimes that’s when what you’ve been dealing with and wrestling with starts to hit. If that’s you tonight, I want to encourage you that God still performs wonders no matter what has been said or done in your past.

He performs wonders that cannot be fathomed, miracles that cannot be counted. - Job 5:9

1. God is still writing your story
Job was a man of complete integrity and lived a blameless life…yet, even he found himself in a place of the deepest pain and anguish. With his family dead and his body fallen into sickness, it makes sense from the eyes of a real human being that he would be broken and weak. But as his friend Eliphaz expressed in this verse, Job would come to know and see that this is true (Job 42:7-17). No matter the challenges he faced, God was still there and he was still writing Job’s story. Even when Job lost it all, he didn’t lose God’s hand in his life. God didn’t lose sight of him.

2. If God closed a door, that doesn’t mean he won’t open others
in Job 42 we see that God blessed Job with more than he had before. We see that even though he lost so much, God never lifted the pen from the paper of writing his story. Chapter after chapter, Job got closer and closer to what God had for him. You might be in one those chapters right now where it’s just not adding up. Maybe you were just broken up with. Maybe the person you trusted just turned their back on you. Maybe sickness is in your body and you’ve been told that nothing can be done. Maybe you desire to be married and God just won’t open that door, even though you’ve been faithful and obedient to Him. Tonight, I want to encourage you that God is still writing your story and the mere fact that you’re alive and well enough to read this right now means that this book is not closed. Don’t see the closed doors as a bad thing. God is protecting, preserving, and preparing you for what is to come. Whatever you’re waiting on, whatever you’re desiring, keep trusting and see what doors He opens!

Biblical context & further reading: Job 3-5, Job 42:7-17

anonymous asked:

This has been in the back of my mind for a while and you post such thoughtful Magnus meta, so I wondered if you might have tips. If a white person, such as myself, were trying to write from the perspective of an Asian person, such as Magnus Bane, what should one should avoid when it comes to descriptions of other characters/interactions? Like sometimes I read an LGBT character and their voice/actions screams 'a straight person wrote this!' (1/2)

(2/2) I know I’d never be 100% for his perspective, but do you have any thoughts about this? I had a hard time trying to figure out how to ask this question, I don’t really know how to word it properly so I hope it doesn’t offend in anyway, or seem presumptuous. Your meta always helps give me perspective, so I’d really value any thoughts or even resources about this.

It’s not presumptuous! I really appreciate you sending this in. I’ll start by pointing you to @writingwithcolor. They answer a lot of questions and they also have POC profiles where users submit their experiences as a POC, which is very detailed and useful.

There are also 3 things to keep in mind.

  1. You cannot separate race, gender, and sexuality. Magnus is bisexual and Asian and a man. All three are crucial. When you remember he’s a bisexual man but forget he’s Asian, then he defaults to being white. The majority of issues stem from the simple fact that people treat him as if he were white. I don’t mean how they describe his skin color but that stereotypes/experiences specific to Asian men aren’t taken into account. So they believe the concept/storyline they’re applying to him is fine or progressive when it may be actively harmful.

  2. Account for his race not just in how the people within the story treat him but how the narrative of your story does, too. Hold your narrative up to the overall context of how Asian men are treated in media (desexualization/feminization/submissiveness) and be honest about how it stands up.

  3. If you’re writing an AU, think hard about the role you’ve chosen to give Magnus vs. the role you’ve given Alec. If Alec is royalty or along those lines and Magnus is in service to him or his authority is lessened when in canon he is 1) the High Warlock; and 2) an influential self-made businessman, think really really hard about why you’ve interpreted a canonically powerful man of color in this way.

The main takeaway is to just be more self-aware of your writing and thought processes. You’re going to have subconscious biases and that’s okay because media and society instill them in us every day; as a POC, I find myself with racial biases, too. It’s when people refuse to acknowledge that they do that it becomes problematic.

jily fic recs: authors i love

I’ve met so many great people in this fandom, authors who graciously share their talents with the fandom. and deserve all the reviews, follows, and praise in the world. Sometimes I share them with you!

Today: @preciselypotter

Fic list. FFN. (Moving soon to A03.)

Some things I love: Wonderful summaries, for a start. The meticulousness with which the plots for these fics are put together never fails to impress me. I get the feeling that the entire story–main plot, subplots–is all laid out from start to finish before that first chapter is ever posted. Reading Todd’s fics is wonderful, because it’s easy reading, but only because an extraordinary amount of effort has been put into it to make it so. Good writing, in short. I also want to give props for wonderful characterizations. As in, the characters have emotions, conflicts, and motives. Depth! And unique voices! That’s hard to pull off, especially when so many characters are involved, but she does it brilliantly.

Favorite fics:

It Always Starts in Cokeworth (Multi-chap, completed) –  Lily Evans went down a different path in life when she left Hogwarts. Two years later, the last person she’d expect comes to bring her back into the world she left behind. AU.

Fairy Tale Robbery (Multi-chap, WIP)  – Meet James Potter: modern-day Robin Hood, con man, thrill seeker. He and his merry Marauders have been hired to steal from none other than the highest in the land. Meet Lily Evans: the Queen’s sister, activist, (likewise) thrill seeker. Lily Evans is James’ mark. James Potter is in for a few surprises. AU.

He and She (Multi-chap, completed) – Imperfect people sometimes fall into imperfect love. But it’s still love, after all, and isn’t that the point? (A hogwarts fic that won’t make you rip your eyes out.)

A Matter of Timing (Multi-chap, wip) –  Worn out from a war she’s been fighting for too long, Lily Evans agrees to spend a year teaching at Hogwarts. What she finds there is not only a temporary reprieve from the battlefield but also the whirlwind that will change the course of her life. AU.

Go check her out!

other authors i love

🎉🐶💕 actualdogvines' first birthday 💕🐶🎉

so today is officially one year since i started this blog and i really can’t believe that within one year, it has grown to where it is now. with nearly 160,000 followers and slightly over 7,000 posts, all i can really say is thank you. thank you for your constant support, amazing comments, fantastic contributions, sweet messages, and for everything else in between. 

you have all been so amazing and you have made my 2015 so wonderful. it still feels like one big dream sometimes! nothing can replace the feeling of knowing how many people appreciate this, and so i just want to make sure that you all know how much i appreciate you.

many hugs and belly rubs, 

 ADV, Randy, and Theo 🐾❤️

sometimes i honestly wonder if the majority of the 100 fandom has ever been in another damn fandom because clexa fans seem constantly annoyed by the fact that bellarke shippers act like bellarke is already canon, or hope that it will be in the future…like, this is what happens. in fandoms. everywhere.

every goddamn fandom has people shipping things and making gifsets and metas and posts going “OMG SO #MARRIED” even if the ship isn’t fucking canon like pls realize this isn’t an insult to nature.

honestly like i wonder how jack reacted when he found out that bitty had NO idea who bad bob was. like jack’s identity in the media for basically his entire life has been “bad bob’s son who will follow in his footsteps” and i bet Jack gets a lot of stuff like “jack? oh man, you’re bad bob zimmerman’s son!” and it’s overwhelming sometimes

like I know jack wasn’t too fond of bitty when they first met but it’s like… i wonder if jack felt nice talking to bitty because bitty just sees Jack as the hardass captain of the hockey team and nothing else

and then i have this headcanon that Jack would always be drawn to people in his classes who have no connection to hockey or know literally nothing about it because altho he loves hockey so much it’s just so overwhelming and it’s great to be anonymous sometimes

Sometimes I wonder if Taylor Swift has ever been on Tumblr and seen one of my posts…but then I reassure myself “there’s no way because if she had…she’d definitely be following me by now or would like like my post because I’m awesome and hilarious!!”
taylorswift

Okay so I have been so hesitant to post this because people sometimes people are mean to people who have met Taylor, let’s be honest…and I’m not down with the hate. BUT that being said, my wonderful poTAYto squad has helped me to realize to screw what other people say. I feel like the 13 hour meet and greet gets forgotten somehow, but I will never forget it. This was and will ALWAYS be the most incredible, memorable and DAZZLING day of my life. Taylor I know you remember the 13 hour meet and greet. Thank you SO SO SO much for that day. It was so amazing, you were so kind and crazy wonderful to stand there alllllll day long for us. And perform for us. You were as sweet as could be and clearly (as you can tell from the picture) I cried like a baby and you told me I was so sweet and not to feel bad and that you love me and I was beautiful. This day will ways stay with me, you will always stay with me and I will always stay with you. I love you so much. Thank you for everything and for being you.
