i'm going to actually cry now

They met up over winter break.

Kei’s trying his best to school a face of indifference but he can’t because Kuroo’s here and Kuroo’s standing right next to me and Kuroo’s taking a selfie with me and Kuroo and Kuroo and

I apologize for the delay! I started this about two weeks ago, but then I suddenly got really, really into needle knitting and neglected to work on it (I am currently donning my freshly knit teal garter-stitch scarf I named Orange. I am content and currently in the middle of a cream-coloured mistake-stitch scarf (◡‿◡✿)). 

I drew this in celebration of my city finally getting some epic snowfall. I’m so excited for the holidays!

I used FireAlpaca to make this! Thank you to the anon who recommended this software to me ( ˘ ³˘)♥, I quite like it.

Thank you reading and uh, looking at my drawing teehee

Mari Christmas! (*^∀゚)ъ

When gift boxes start falling from the sky, everyone thinks it’s a Christmas miracle. The scores of solid objects blasting through the roofs of their homes moments later remind them that just maybe, they should be worrying about the laws of gravity as well. Some choose to hide from the barrage in their homes, while others decide to scramble outside to seek shelter elsewhere.

Bad choice. The townspeople scream and dive out of the way as a pink helicopter swoops low to the ground. Eight children are nearly decapitated. They’re being comforted by their parents after this traumatizing experience as the helicopter slows its descent and hovers in place.

The door to the aircraft slams open to reveal Ohara Mari wearing a red Santa suit and obviously fake white beard. She takes in everyone’s terrified faces with interest. Then, Mari winks, forms a circle with her thumb and forefinger, and whispers, “It’s joke!

No one says a word. Perhaps they’re in shock over the whole situation. Mari doesn’t pay them any mind and says, “Ciao~” before closing the door. The helicopter begins to pick up height, and the bystanders shake themselves out of their stupor so that they can quickly back away before they’re blown off their feet by the resulting winds. Mari’s helicopter veers sharply right and takes off, nearly colliding with a power line. The crowd watches the helicopter slowly fade from sight in stunned silence.

Thousands of homes are destroyed. The entire town is laid to waste, and children weep at the loss of their image of Santa Claus.

But it’s okay, because Dia is money. Mari will drop off the bill for the damages at the Kurosawa estate in the morning.

She chuckles to herself as her helicopter flies off into the night. With this, Dia will definitely regret telling the Ohara heiress that Santa wasn’t real when they were first years.

honestly I’m now super glad I found about my job over the phone rather than in person because it took me like ten minutes just to stop crying

* PHOSPHENE .   also here’s a thing … i’ve officially been roleplaying obi-wan kenobi for a whole year let’s talk about that . 

What the actual fuck!?!?!

So, I heard through the grape vine that bad things had happened to Enzo…now i’m a bonkai fan and stopped watching long ago but curiousity had me wondering what happened. I go on youtube and watched the clip. That was heartbreaking, my condolences to the bonenzo fans. Can she have not even a moments happiness. My poor Bonnie….that was so sad. I can’t even be angry right now cause that was some Buffy the vampire slayer and Giles walking in level bullshit (being vague on purpose..no spoilers).

ok but

imagine if magnus was really scared to show alec his cat eyes and alec wasn’t trying to pressure him into doing it or anything he just wanted magnus to know that he would love him no matter what and alec just kinda says “look magnus i love you, and i’m always going to be here for you” and magnus tears up because it’s the first time anyone has actually said the words “i love you” to him and now he’s got watery eyes as he just blurts out “i love you too, alexander” 

Taylor I know you might not care or whatever, but I just wanted to let you know that my pell grant for college was just accepted, and that means I can actually go to college. It’s been a dream for so long but school is just too expensive, and I couldn’t imagine making my dad pay for it when he just doesn’t have the money. I’m so excited right now and I just wanted to let you know because you’re so important to me and I’m crying I’m so happy I never thought college was going to be in my future.

my mom just cleaned my room for me and now I’m crying because it makes me feel really unsafe and uncomfortable and paranoid when people go through and organize my things but she thinks I’m being ungrateful this is horrible


u guys have no idea how much i started crying in the scene when alec realizes he’s just going to be one of the many lovers in magnus’s life. that tore me APART especially when magnus had told him they should enjoy what they had now and alec gave a sad smile like my boy mi amor mi todo, you’re not just passing through magnus’s life you two get MARRIED you have CHILDREN. it killed me and i just wanted to hug him and tell him he doesnt have to be insecure and he doesnt have to be so sad about the fact that magnus has had so many lovers in his past. like alec, my everything, my love, you’re so important!! you to him, him to you! i just ,,,, i want to hug this boy ,,,,,,, so tightly ,,,,

Like, I’m actually crying because Finn is such a beautiful and truly revolutionary character in so many ways and John Boyega’s talent is honestly incredible, immense, and undeniable yet he and Finn don’t get the love they deserve and would otherwise get simply because he’s Black. There is literally no other reason or explanation. 

John is literally still dealing with people tweeting him about how they wished Finn would’ve died in the movie and how he seems “out of place.” No shade to anyone else, but in an honest assessment of merit and performance, John Boyega should be the breakout star of TFA, and yes, he’s gotten awards–BAFTA, Empire Awards, etc.–but if he were white he’d have so much more. I mean, Harrison Ford got a Best Actor nomination for TFA over John, the actual lead. Like, at the point where we had to create the #FinnIsALead campaign and STILL have to remind and even PROVE to people that John/Finn is the male lead of Star Wars: The Force Awakens…just, I’m tired. But that’s what whiteness does: it elevates white mediocrity and ignores and denies Black excellence. 

John had to be ten times better than the white guys that auditioned for the role, evidenced by the fact that they made him audition for seven whole months–longer than anyone else. (Oh to be a fly on the wall in those conversations given that they decided against giving the role of Han Solo to a Black man 30 years ago because of the romance with a white woman.) John’s talent and charisma had to be so overwhelming that it couldn’t be ignored. And when he books the part, gives a stellar performance, when he meets and exceeds the impossible standards whiteness places on Blackness for basic consideration, and is clearly the lead of the biggest movie franchise on the planet, he’s still not given his due. Because he’s Black. 

This world doesn’t deserve Finn, or John, or any of the millions of incredible Black folks existing despite systematic efforts to annihilate us. No matter how much hate we endure, no matter how we’re ignored, we’re still here, forcing this world to witness us and our greatness. Existing and excelling and resisting extermination. We’re staring down a world that insists our greatness, talent, culture, beauty, are not truly ours, and when commanded to hand it over, step aside, bow down, we continue to defiantly look our oppressors in the eyes and reply, “Come get it.” 


Happy 34th Birthday, Sebastian Stan! (born August 13th, 1982)

Wishing you a day full of lots of love, cake, and whatever else your heart desires! *throws confetti* 

oKAY BUT in the beggining of the manga it’s Yona’s birthday right??? and we clearly see Soo-Won giving Yona a present but

what about Hak?

did he not bother getting her a present bc she would like, tease him about it anyways???

did he get her a something that he’d give to her later??? is it somewhere, still hidden, still wrapped???

what could it be?? how does Son Hak choose the present he’ll give to the love of his life on her day?? was it a rare flower or a shiny comb or neckace or… a hairpin?

did he get her a present that he knew he’d never give to her? 

what was their tradition when it came to this? like does Yona refuse to gift him anything on his birthday too bc that’s just how their relationship works??? or doe she actually get him something very thoughtful, throws it over his head every year and then runs away like she doesn’t care?

what’s the exact rythm of Hak’s heart as he opens it and he finds that thing he talked to her about like four and a half months ago???

did i just give myself the feels???

Right so, after a whole lot of research (and writing this post THREE times due to the fact Google Drive is being stupid and crashed twice on me), I’ve finally got the meaning of most of the symbols. 

Quick warning now though, the center symbol that looks like this ♀ kinda spiraled into my own theory that may or not really pertain to this? Eh going to mention it anyways. 

So here we go:

This was actually super hard to find, however its clear here that the bottom symbol means to “warn off evil spirits” which makes sense, and I also read somewhere that the “medicine man’s eye” could represent Bill due to his lack of a second eye, therefore put together its a sign warding off Bill. 

Then theres that symbol near the upper circle that most likely represents altocumulus, which is a type of cloud. 

Altocumulus is also commonly found between the warm and cold fronts in a depression, although this is often hidden by lower clouds. Towering altocumulus, known as altocumulus castellanus, frequently signals the development of thunderstorms later in the day, as it shows instability and convection in the middle levels of the troposphere, the area where towering cumulus clouds can turn into cumulonimbus.

(Found on wikipedia). 

The most interesting thing I find about this is the fact altocumulus clouds are often hidden behind lower clouds and bring storms, and Stan is a con man who hid his secrets behind his tourist trap, but when he’s plan was complete a “storm” came. 

The hardest thing to find was the ♀ symbol. 

I knew Venus was the Roman name for one of the Greek gods, and I was hoping it would be like a god of strength or war. 

For those of you who don’t know, Aphrodite is the goddess of love, beauty, feminism, and basically everything Stan is not. I tried to find some alternatives to this, however I could not find anything that was remotely similar to the picture at the very top. So I figured maybe the symbol represents someone Stan loved at one point, which brings me to the Carla Gleeful theory.

So in case your confuzzled, Carla was once Stan’s girlfriend before she dumped him for a hippie. After that Stan says his memory gets “hallucinationy”. Then in “The Hand That Rocks The Mabel”, we see this:

This was seen in Gideon’s commercial for his tent of telepathy, a commercial that was narrated by Bud Gleeful. But wait, Bud already has a wife right?

This poor woman?

According to the theory, Bud was too cowardly to tell Carla that he loved her, so instead he brainwashed her to believe that she was her girlfriend so that he wouldn’t have to. This is possible because we know Bud was apart of the blind eye society and because of this:

(Also going to point out, Pacifica’s memories are there too). 

Of course there are some physical differences:

The most disappoint thing to me being the difference in jawline. However in “Blendin’s Game” we also see this:

A happy rounded jawed Mrs. Gleeful. 

My guess is that Carla was pretty happy with Bud, until he started using the brainwashing wayyyy to much on her and she became the paranoid person we see today. 

Anyways, going back to the tattoo, maybe the ♀ is another sign we’re going to a see a reappearance of Carla? In “The Hand That Rocks Mabel”, at the end of the episode the code reads “Carla, why won’t you call me?”. Maybe we’re going to see her again in future episodes?

I realize theres probably a whole list of things we should be worried about OTHER than this, for example:

- Aftermath of the portal

- Whether or not Gideon escaped jail during the destruction

- How Bill will react to the return of the author

- Dipper’s relationship with Stanford

- Dipper’s relationship with Stanley

- Dipper’s relationship with Mabel

(As you can see I’m very worried about Dipper xD). 

However, I thought this was pretty cool nonetheless and if I’m correct and Carla DOES have something to do with that tattoo, (though its more likely that these are just two different theories based on the evidence), the fact that she, bill and a symbol that means “wards away evil” is what Stan has chosen to be his tattoo is pretty interesting and I’m really excited to see how this all plays out.

idk if you're still oversharing but tell me the history of all the pets you ever had pls <3

oh totally. i’ll overshare with you any day, especially when it comes to my pets!

when i was a really little girl, we had a tabby named sudi (after the phil collins song sussudio) and a white cat named luna. i actually don’t remember much about luna because she died when i was a wee baby, but sudi was kinda mean. skittish and not really up for a lot of attention, which was a shame because my two sisters and i really wanted to give her lots of love.

after sudi got sick and passed away, we got a calico named abby. we actually found her at a home and garden show. the apl had a display there, and i got stuck in front of this particular cat’s cage and wouldn’t leave. that, of course, attracted my sisters’ attention, and we went home with a cat. abby was also kind of standoffish – she’d disappear whenever someone new came to our house. but she really loved my aunt for whatever reason. she made the move with us from our first house, to an apartment, to my parents’ current home, but then eventually went into kidney failure. she was pretty resilient and stuck around for a long time, but we had to keep her isolated in a crate and give her lots of meds.

shortly after we’d settled into my parents’ current home, we found spencer – another tabby. he lived on a golf course across the street from one of my older sister’s friend’s houses, and i don’t remember exactly how he came to live with us. what i do remember is that my mom made his being able to stay contingent on him learning to use the cat door to the basement where we kept the litter boxes, so my sisters and i spent a concentrated afternoon training him with plenty of treats and pats. spencer was by far our friendliest cat at that point. very affectionate. liked pretzels and sleeping in my little sister’s bed. he’s still around, but he’s had kitty cancer for awhile. so he’s not in the best health.

i think our dogs – charlie and tessa – came next. my mom did a lot of research about hypoallergenic dogs and decided we’d get labradoodles. i remember we had dentist appointments before we were scheduled to meet with the breeder, who had two puppies left, and my mom was very stern with us girls about how we were only going to bring home ONE dog. when we got there, charlie was very outgoing and spent time with each of us, while tessa hid – scared as hell – under the table. it was actually my dad who asked for both, ahaha. i want to say they’re about 13 or 14 now.

next, my sister went to college – two different ones in fact – and came home with a cat from each. cali and mason. zoey came from her job at a vet clinic – she had one eye swollen shut but they were able to revive her. finn is also from the clinic. he came from a litter someone just dumped on the front steps. all these cats still live with my parents and aren’t really MINE, but i love them anyway. 

which brings me to oliver! he did live at my parents’ house for several years before i got my own cat-friendly place. (he’s emotionally scarred from living with my mother for too long - just like me…i can tell because he fuckin scatters every time he hears her voice. my bby). ANYWAY, my little sister is actually the one who brought oliver home. she, and one of my friends from high school, found him on a farm. a couple of assholes were going to shoot him just to get rid of him, but my lil sis saved him.
oliver’s a tabby. he so soft and pretty much scared constantly (we’re trying some anxiety meds for him atm actually) and i’m the only person he’s cool with 100% of the time. i love that little guy with all my heart.

we rescued buffy, our tiny little calico bby, from my older sister’s clinic too. she tested positive for FIV and those cats aren’t usually easy to adopt out, so my sister called me. john and i visited her and immediately fell in love. she was our first cat together and – damn i’m tearing up writing this because i still miss her so much – we were devastated when we found out she had some aggressive form of kitty leukemia that had spread to several organs only a year and a half after getting her. i mean, we knew she was gonna have a slightly shorter lifespan than most cats, but we were just not prepared for that news. the last month of her life was really challenging, watching her appetite slip away and her body take the toll of the illness. we buried her with her favorite toy ball in john’s parents’ yard.

finally, we adopted anya from an old classmate, who decided to foster a litter of four kittens. she reached out to us a few months after we put buffy down, and john and i decided that the timing was just fine. anya’s white with black spots, she REALLY likes food (she’s getting chubby, it’s adorable), and she’s super playful. her and oliver get along just fine, but she’d definitely more rambunctious than him so she gets on his nerves sometimes. but they snuggle in sunbeams and play a lot. <3

ask me stuff!! let me overshare!!!


Tayledras Hanzo is judging you, Jesse

So nobody probably knows what Valdimar even is, but fyi it’s an amazing country in a loooong collection of series of books by Mercedes Lackey and multiple other authors about magic sentient horses and forest elves with their sentient telepathic deer pals oh and can’t forget their sentient magic birds plus lots and lots of magic and lgbt+ characters. Please for the love of all that is holy go read Mercedes Lackey right now you will Never Regret.

(This, actually, is the plot of Take a Thief, where the main character is a street orphan master thief who sees a white horse wandering around and tries to steal it, somehow forgetting the concept of Companions even though he’s in the capital where the Herald big fancy school is, and then gets taken for a wild ride by his new Companion. There’s far more to the plot but I just… this is Jesse.)

Herald McCree and Tayledras Hanzo is all I’m dying for please somebody out there know what I’m talking about Jesus fuck come talk to me about Valdimar au
