PSA For Marvel Fans

I get it. Shuri is smart. Smarter than Tony, undoubtedly. Marvel confirmed her as the smartest person in the MCU. Which is awesome, I’m in love with the idea of a 16 yr old WOC being put on that pedestal, it’s fucking dope.

But just because she’s smarter than Tony does not mean you have to fucking drag Tony through the mud over it.

I’ve seen way too many “Shuri appreciation” posts that only seem to exist to mock Tony and his incompetence compared to Shuri. They paint him as an egotistical brat who’d take Shuri’s existence like a kick to the balls, while Shuri would be this suave lil’ goddess reigning over him, making him feel stupid.

Shut. The. Fuck. Up.

First of all, do you really think Tony would be upset or bratty about Shuri’s intellectual superiority? Do you really fucking think that? Are you kidding me? Tony would be fucking ecstatic to meet her, to see scientific achievements.

Look at how easily Tony took people like Bruce and Peter under his wing. Not once was there the undertone of Tony trying to best them or prove himself to be smarter, he was just stoked to have someone to talk science with. Tony’s literal first lines to Bruce are a compliment of his work. He is clearly impressed with seeing the web shooters Peter built. Not once would Tony take a hit to his ego (with is virtually non-existent, but that’s a rant for another day) over Shuri’s knowledge being greater than his. He’d be impressed, and eager to learn more. He’d want Shuri to tell him all about Wakanda’s science division, how she created to Black Panther suit, etc. He would be in a scientific Candyland, even if he didn’t understand all of it. 

Tony Stark is a scientist, above all else. He would absolutely love being able to learn about scientific concepts he hadn’t considered, love seeing what Shuri has done, and most of all, he’d love the idea of a 16 yr old girl doing it all. Tony is progressive as fuck. He gave his entire company over to a woman he originally hired as his assistant AND let a 15 yr old be a superhero because Tony believed in him, remember? Tony Stark would fucking love the idea of a 16 yr old lil’ meme lord being the smartest person in the MCU, and would gladly follow her lead.

And Secondly, Shuri Could Learn From Tony Too

Yes, Shuri is smarter. But here’s the thing. Quantity wise, she knows more. But that does not mean she knows everything Tony does. Remember, they’re on opposite sides of the globe, and Wakanda is a (previously) isolated country. Her tech may be better, but it is also vastly different in principle from Tony’s, meaning she’d still want to learn about Tony’s.

Shuri wouldn’t know or at the very least would have very limited knowledge of arc reactor tech. You think she wouldn’t be hella interested in that shit? Her tech may be advanced in some ways, but it isn’t perfect. Imagine if Shuri and Tony combined their geniuses to make shit leagues better than what either of them has.

Can you really tell me Shuri wouldn’t be deeply fascinated by the Iron Man armour? (Especially now that from the looks of the Infinity War trailer, Tony has the blood armour, which is even more dope and scientifically advanced) She’d want to learn every wire and circuit, learn all about it, then give Tony a list of tips as to how to improve it.

Tony and Shuri would have a fucking field day of locking themselves away in a lab and learning about each other’s tech, improving it, on both ends. They’d be science bros, the same way y’all have headcanons with Shuri and Peter. I haven’t seen a single Peter/Shuri friendship headcanon in which Peter is dragged. If you can do it with Peter, you can do it with Tony.

Also, Shuri Isn’t A Dick

Shuri would not act the way I’ve seen her depicted in some of these “Shuri meets Tony” headcanons. Yes, she’s a bit cocky, but she’s not an asshole. She wouldn’t be condescending toward Tony, hell, I can almost guarantee as a scientist, she probably grew up reading some of his papers. Tony Stark is still a respected figure in the science field with multiple PhDs and papers on his work. Granted, they’d be older papers, Wakanda’s isolation and all, but I can promise you Shuri’s read at least one.

Do you really fucking think she’d meet the sole creator of the Iron Man armour and be a bitch about how her stuff is better? Shuri’s a beautiful lil’ nerd, and she’d love to see the armour. She’d be all on board and gaga over it. She’d love to see uses of technology she may have never thought of because once again,

Shuri is smarter, but that does not mean she knows everything Tony does.

Intelligence relies heavily on creativity, which is different for everyone. As the MCU has shown, Shuri and Tony have used their smarts in very different ways, in very different areas. They could learn so much from each other and would make fucking amazing science bros. Why would you tose aside that amazing headcanon just because you can’t imagine Tony not being an egotistical, self-centred, brat?

TLDR, Don’t Use Shuri To Be A Dick To Tony

I don’t care if you’re an anti and doing it on purpose, if you’re a Shuri fan who loves her so much you don’t care about Tony, whatever. Just stop it. 

You do not need to tear him down to hold her up.

So stop. Shuri is a beautiful goddess who deserves all the love and attention and appreciation posts, I won’t ever disagree with that. But don’t use her to make another beautiful god MCU character look like trash.

Thank you for reading.

How to Spot Bad Writing Advice: 6 Red Flags to Look For

First of all, I’m not by any means the authority on what makes good or bad writing advice! Writing is an art. There are no rules in art, which means that writing advice, by extension, is highly subjective.

In my opinion, if it works for you, if it helps you improve and be happier with your writing, that’s good writing advice. If it hinders you, takes you down the wrong path, fucks with your creative process, causes more confusion than clarity, that’s bad advice. So when you’re sorting the good from the bad, go with your gut, and don’t let anyone bully you into their way of thinking, regardless of how credible, famous, or experienced they are. However…

If you’re a new writer, it can take a while to tell the difference between helpful (”good”) writing advice and unhelpful (”bad”) writing advice.

Remember that literally anyone can pose as an expert and offer writing advice. As a published fiction writer, professional editor, and writing teacher, I see a lot of writing advice floating around on Tumblr that I just don’t agree with. Figuring out how to sift through everything takes time, but here are some red flags to keep an eye out for:

Red Flag #1: Hard-and-Fast Rules

Bad writing advice gives hard-and-fast rules, and doesn’t allow for exceptions. It liberally uses words like always and never. (Example: “Never open a book with the weather,” “Always punctuate your dialogue like this,” “You can’t write a novel that’s longer than 100,000 words,” etc.)

How I am making the best of my education!

I see lots of people asking how to be successful in college. I thought I’d make a post to throw everyone my 2 cents–though no one asked for it. It’s free money though. Who doesn’t want it?

1) Figure out your learning style. If you google VARK learning profile, there’s a great quiz you can take with study techniques based on your results. We actually use this quiz at the tutoring center at my college. You’d be surprised how many students come specifically for help figuring out how to study.

2) Keep a planner. Or a bullet journal. Or use google calendar. I even know someone who carries around a full size 18 month calendar folded up in her backpack (and she’s a professor). Just find something and WRITE EVERY SINGLE ASSIGNMENT DOWN IN IT. EVEN IF YOU THINK YOU’LL REMEMBER IT, THERE’S A CHANCE YOU WON’T. DON’T TAKE THAT CHANCE.

3) Try to make a personal timetable and stick to it! This kind of goes along with the planner point, but it is different. It takes lots of discipline to block off and actually study during study times, but you’ll be thanking yourself later when you’ve finished your homework and can actually get to bed at a reasonable hour. In addition to studying, homework, and classes; also block off time for eating, possible times for napping (if you take them), and extracurriculars. If you can’t find adequate time for things, maybe you should consider dropping a class or an activity for the semester.

4) Make a to-do list every day. I personally use sticky notes and stick them to the page of my planner. This helps me remember things that are school related, but also other things, like appointments, social gatherings, research stuff, and family events (since I live at home and commute to school). Yeah, it’s important to remember school stuff, but the other stuff you’ve gotta get done, like laundry and social time, is JUST AS IMPORTANT.

5) Don’t neglect your health! I cannot stress this point enough!! If you aren’t eating enough, sleeping enough, or spending enough time relaxing, you will burn out very very quickly. You think it won’t happen to you, but it will. I thought I was immune to burnout, but after a month of intermittent and inadequate sleep and nutrition–I really figured out that I was SO wrong. I ended up missing an entire day of class towards the end of the semester (plus missed a lab the next day because my professor sent me home) because I just couldn’t make myself do any more stuff. It could have been much worse, but I was lucky. I used those days to rest up and returned to my classes ready to finish out the semester strong. College is hard enough to do with no mental health conditions. If you have one, and even if you don’t, be extra sure that you are taking care of yourself. YOU come before EVERYTHING ELSE. Nothing is more important than you. If you have to, ask people to check up on you. Ask a friend to check in with you, or your RA, or even your parents. They won’t mind. Your RA really does want to help you.

6) Study smart, not hard. Sometimes, studying just isn’t worth it. If it’s been half an hour and you just CANNOT FOCUS and feel like you’ve learned nothing: go outside, do some homework, do some laundry, or even just switch the topic you’re studying. If you’re trying to study the right way and you can’t make yourself do it, just find something else productive to do. Come back in another 15 minutes and try again. It happens to all of us. Also, if you’re studying for hours at a time with no breaks, it leads to burnout super quick. I have friends who do that and I don’t understand why. They’re so miserable about studying. It doesn’t have to be terrible! If you take the 25 minutes on, 5 minutes off approach, studying becomes less terrible, because you know there’s an end in sight. Plus, the 5 minutes off gives your brain a little time to process what you’re learning. That said, try to study what you learned in class that day a few hours after class. Material is so much easier to learn this way! Don’t save it for the night before your exam. Cramming rarely helps. Don’t let other people fool you–studying doesn’t have to be something out of your worst nightmare.

7) Find professors who inspire you. I always love a subject more when the professor makes it exciting. Luckily in college, it’s a lot easier to find those kinds of teachers–those who genuinely love what they do. I never would have gotten interested in math without my stats professor (who actually taught me how to integrate, bless her heart), and my proofs professor, who basically let me live in her office last semester (i.e. I like doing my homework with help 5 feet away because I always have so many questions). Find the professors who want to help you. They exist.  

8) Make connections with them! Show up to office hours. Ask them questions you had from lecture. If it’s not a rushed, busy time for them, ask how they got interested in their subject; ask them about what they study–they’ll totally explain it to you like you’re a 5 year old, so don’t worry. In my experience, I have found that professors really like to connect with students. Maybe I’ve just been really lucky. Making connections is easier to do at a smaller school, or within a smaller major–but you never know what will come out of a few questions! Maybe you’ll find a research advisor, or someone you could TA for. I am friendly (and even friends) with so many of my professors just because I’m a curious person. I ask them questions about their experiences in academia, and just general stuff (believe it or not, the decorations they have in their office often lead to some cool conversations). In turn, they’re usually curious about me too. They ask me about what I’m interested in, if I need a reference letter for anything, and even just about my life in general. I know I can ask them for advice on applying to grad school, any problems I’m having with lecture material, and sometimes even general advice. For me, it’s just comforting to know that I have some people on my side who have been through college (especially if you’re like me and 17 or 18, fresh out of high school). Also, they know what you should do if you accidentally miss a final exam (like I did my first semester).

9) This is for all my math, science, tech, and engineering people out there–and people taking those classes! It also applies to other majors to maybe not as great an extent. Don’t get frustrated if you come across a problem you can’t solve.  If you can’t figure it out and have spent a chunk of time on it, move on and go back to it at the end. If you still can’t quite get it, try to go to office hours for help! You are not stupid for not being able to arrive at an answer. When you can’t figure something out, you might just be missing the most crucial piece of the puzzle you need to solve it! Don’t think “Wow I’m such an idiot” (don’t be like me basically), think “what am I missing here?” Think about it. See if you arrive at any conclusions. If not, go find someone to help you. If you find that you’re struggling with a majority of the questions, consider getting a tutor. Tutoring should be offered by your school for either very little or no charge at all. Take advantage! Tutors don’t know everything, but they sure can get your thought process on the right track! I’m a tutor and believe me–it really does help.

10) Find study buddies! My study buddies have become my best friends. We all share a love of biology, and it really brings us together. We love hiking together, and commiserating when it feels necessary. Plus, we make studying fun! If you have trouble making friends (I know I really struggle), start a study group. It’s really a great way to make connections with other people in your major, or even people outside your major.

I hope this helps! Good luck in the fall to any of you kids who are just starting college–and happy studying!

🌱The Basics of Witchcraft🌱

This is a small excerpt from my coven’s lessons. I’ll continue to post these so witchlings, or witches, can have this information! I hope it helps.


Witchcraft is, in my opinion, the practice of manipulating energy forces into your intent. This can also be simplified as the practice of magick. You can aid it by tools and materials, but no matter what, you are manipulating energy. That is why energy work can be very important.

The Craft started wayy back, from the start of human civilization. Before we started to get scientifically advanced and didn’t know that much, we would believe in the supernatural, that a god or spirit did this and that. Witches were the mediators between humans and the higher powers. Religion and Witchcraft may have gone hand to hand back then, but it isn’t always the case. You can practice witchcraft without believing in a higher power or deity. Here are just some things to know before stepping into the Craft:

  • Witchcraft ≠ Religion
  • It isn’t a game(To specify, don’t half-ass a spell. It either might not work, or worse, create chaos. We can learn about this next lesson when we learn about Energy work).
  • Witchcraft can be used for anything and everything you want it to be, It’s really flexible.
  • There are morals and ethics to learn about in the craft you should pay attention to
  • It is an enhancement, not a replacement to your life.

To elaborate on the last point, here is a document by Brian Windvexer that should be looked at:

  • Don’t Let Witchcraft Erase Who You Are:
  • Don’t become dependent on Tarot readings to make decisions
  • Don’t feel like the day is ruined if you left the house without drawing your card for the day
  • Don’t feel helpless if you can’t figure out a spell to help
  • Don’t rely on witchcraft alone to improve your relationships
  • Don’t forget how to speak out because you can hex at home
  • Don’t forget how to be confident without a candle spell
  • Don’t forget to discover for yourself because there are so many free resources online
  • Don’t get panicky if you can’t explain it with your new beliefs
  • Don’t lose your friends because they don’t understand the new you
  • Don’t avoid going out with friends so you can buy more herbs and candles instead
  • Don’t give up your other hobbies to practice endless energy work or Divination
  • Don’t neglect your job or studies to read witchcraft books instead
  • Don’t ask yourself ‘what would a witch do’. Ask yourself, ‘What would I do.’
  • Witchcraft is an enhancement to life, not a replacement for life.

There are different types of witchcraft and I’d say they are all valid. But with every practice, there are certain basics to them.

They are:

  • Protection
  • Grounding
  • Centering
  • Meditation
  • Visualization

Protection - To guard and prevent harmful energies to an area/being, especially in Magick practice.

There are 3 types:

Wards: protection of an area (ie. House or room)

Shields: protection of a being (ie. You, someone else, maybe a pet)

Circles: Temporary protection ground for rituals

Here’s the best part of protection, you can think of protection in so many ways, may it be a ring of fire, a giant bubble, a castle wall, whatever your heart desires! You can even more than But, I suggest putting up protection that is similar to a membrane, so things still flow freely, letting the good things in and the bad things out.

There are plenty of techniques to set up protection, starting with visualization. Imagination is a powerful tool, and is very important in practicing energy work and the craft. Some added protection is made by adding protection-associated materials, like Salt for example.


Grounding - To stabilize your energies and stay down to earth

Grounding is a great recommendation to keeping your energies in control and staying connected to the earth. It can help recharge you with energies.

One technique to help ground yourself is to visualize a root shooting from the bottom of your spine and digging into the earth like a Tree. Gather the energies from the earth, and give off all of the negative energies you feel. Cycle the energies until you feel refreshed. You can make 2 roots and have one give the good energy and the other giving to the earth the negative energies.

It can also be as simple as shaking off and stretching!


Centering - Getting your shit together (shit as in energy).

Centering is great as it can help make a state of mindfulness and gets you to stay present in the present. It’s great mentally. It helps get scattered energy into one. Literally, getting your shit together. Centering can help as well in controlling your energies and gathering yourself up so you stay together. How energy works is that you tend to throw bits and pieces of your energy all around different areas(sometimes you may not even know it), and sometimes you just need to recharge. Most of the time you should ground after a centering.

Here’s one technique to practice centering: visualize scattered energy, making you less bright and more dull, very dim as a person. Then, imagine the pieces of energy flying back at you, morphing around you into one bubble, like a puzzle piece. You start to glow brightly again.


Meditation - Being one with the thoughts/self, calming yourself down and staying mindful and aware.

Meditation can do soooo much. It helps you mentally, physically, and spiritually. It can help your energies stay in check, and It can do so much more than that. Before you astral travel, you must fall into a state of meditation. There are two types of meditation, Concentrated and Mindful. Concentrated is when you focus on one object, sound, or mantra. Mindful doesn’t focus on anything specific, just being aware of everything that passes by in your mind. In witchcraft, if it used to help discover who you are, as well as communicate to others(spirits/deities/etc).

Now, the number one thing to focus on when meditating is to breathe. Long, regular breaths help calm down. Get into a quiet area. Now get into a comfortable position, either cross-legged or laying down. Breathe. 4 counts in, 4 counts out. Clear your mind. Now, be aware of your mind.


Disclaimer: Now not everyone has to follow these things, It’s just a suggestion. Experiences vastly differ from mine.

irleughlivelyatalanteangodfan  asked:

''Every Jedi is a child his family decided they could live without'' That line is so painful and interesting to me. Would you expand on why you think its heart of jedi tragedy?

Full disclosure, I borrowed that line from Yoda: Dark Rendezvous—a book I have not read, but acknowledge because fallen Jedi Dooku telling Yoda that the Order is a fucked up institution that steals children and turns them into soldiers is something I can get behind. The full quote is: “Every Jedi is a child his parents decided they could live without. I wonder, sometimes, if that is what drives us, that first abandonment. We have a lot to prove.”

Listen. A lot of what Star Wars has to achieve is via shorthand—the whole canon is less than 20 hours, which means it has to communicate a complex world, plus plot, is a very abbreviated way. Which is why the Empire borrows the design and aesthetic of fascist dictatorships, and why the Jedi Order steals children. They’re very simple ways of communicating, “this is really fucked up, we can’t show you the extent of how fucked-up it is, but trust us. it’s real fucked.”

Obviously, the reason that the Jedi Order is fucked is shown to us in real time; they’re the primary agent of a pointless, reasonless war ordered by the galaxy’s elected body out of pure politics. (I will fight anyone who says the prequels have no political grounding, they are so early 2000s US of fucking A; george lucas is a numbskull but he knew what he was about.) The Order is an institution, it is woven into the fabric of the galaxy, such that Qui-Gon never thinks twice about Outer Rim slavery and Obi-Wan understands the role the Trade Federation plays in Galactic politics. It’s not the fact that nine-year-old Anakin is a child that keeps him from being indoctrinated into the huge, martial system; it’s that he’s too old for a child. They want someone more malleable.

(There’s an entire scene when Anakin, who has been recently freed from slavery and watched a man die in front of him, must watch strangers debate his right to exist as a Jedi. You can say a lot of things, but there’s that. You have to deal with that, you have to understand that.)

Plus, there’s something unspeakably horrible once you consider that—Obi-Wan, Yoda, Qui-Gon, all these pillars of Jedi wisdom were taken from their families before the age of nine. As early as possible, when children are at their most malleable and plasticity-brained. The Jedi Order wanted them as untainted as possible, and maybe it was for religious reasons. I doubt it, but hey, maybe. (The Catholic Church used to castrate young boys to keep their voices high, pure. Do we think that was religious? Or aesthetic?) But was it any surprise, when they moved on to actual clones, manipulated from before even birth? 

I mean, stop asking nature versus nurture—control both and you have the whole creature in your hands.

The problem with the Jedi Order is that at the end of the day, they were convinced they were Light. And while they were probably right by dint of no other good options (the Dark built Death Stars) that sheer belief is dangerous. It makes you untouchable, even when you do horrific things in the name of that Light. You take children, and accept it as your due; you swallow half the galaxy and think they’re better for it. There’s a self-propagated lie at the heart of the Jedi Order, which is that the Light of its goals justifies all it does in the dark.

Even taking children. Leaning on families until they give up their precious daughters, or sons, or hatchlings, or—

Even that.

Everything else comes from there, from that central conceit. If the Jedi Order is justification enough to say “we deserve the offerings of your infants” then they deserve everything else. Death and blood and clones and privacy and freedom and democracy. Asking for their babies paves the way for all the rest. Shattering families is the original sin of the Jedi; if they hadn’t asked for such a sacrifice, or if the very idea of offering up your children to the ever-gaping maw of the Order was more horrible, unthinkable.

Every Jedi is a child who wasn’t wanted enough by its parents to keep him or her from the battlefield. The tragedy at the heart of the Jedi Order is exactly that—not that they were unwanted, or even horrible, but just not enough. Not to keep them from bloodshed, or uncertainty, just. Not enough.

You are Wrong about Lotor

The advertisements for this season promised to blur the lines between good and evil and delivered exactly that. By the conclusion of Voltron Legendary Defender season Six our paladins have apparently killed the only true hero in this show, destroyed their only access point to unlimited clean energy, and kickstarted a civil war in the Galra Empire. Team Voltron, has become the villains.

What’s that?

Doesn’t sound like we watched the same show?

Let me explain.

The writing and framing this season were truly incredible. Meticulously calculated to provide just the right information at just the right time to draw the exact wrong conclusions. It aims to provoke a violent emotional reaction in the viewer and discourage them from thinking critically about what they’re seeing. Even better, it’s a double trick, as additionally, our protagonists in the show fall into the same trap. It’s so incredibly meta, to have your audience make the same, independent conclusion as your characters.

It’s emotional manipulation at it’s cruelest, and this is only the first of the one-two punch that’s due to land it’s second hit next season.

Because team Voltron is wrong about Lotor, and so are you.

So how do we reconcile Rose’s philosophy with PD’s actions?

Originally posted by pearl-likes-pi

As a lot of people are pointing out, if we just take what we know on the surface to be true, last night’s revelations mean that:

- Rose Quartz kidnapped humans and forced them into an artificial biome for her own amusement, where even to this day millennia later, their descendants are still a traumatized dysfunctional mess

- Rose Quartz whined and wailed and demanded a colony so she could destroy its lifeforms and feel important

- Rose Quartz started a war, wrecked both of her sisters emotionally, and was responsible for the deaths of thousands of gems in an effort to basically quit her job, and did all that sooner than look the other diamonds in the eye and say “What we’re doing here is wrong, and this is how I’m going to run my colony.”

I feel like #2 is pretty easily explained by virtue of naivete, recklessness, and lack of experience. At the time PD was demanding a colony of her own, she had never had the chance to even see organic life, much less understand that it was worth protecting. Once that information was available to her, she acted on it, so I think we can at least explain #2 from ignorance.

Part of #3 will get a bit more complicated shortly, but mostly, let’s chalk it up to the same thing: ignorance. The conversation in A Single Pale Rose made it pretty clear that PD did not know what was about to transpire. Her line of thinking was that her sisters didn’t particularly care about her or her colony, and with her dead, they would abandon the project, saving Earth. She fully believed that they would give up and leave.

Notice Pearl saying “Why did I do it?” during the war memory–she’s crippled with regret. And that’s because neither she nor Rose had any idea just how bad things were about to get. They legitimately thought they had found a pacifist route.

#1 is a lot more complicated, and it’s what I’d like to focus on. Now, I have been spending a long time lambasting the human zoo. There are still fans who want to see it as a good thing, but understand: I fucking hate the zoo. Everything about it is disgusting. If everything we have been told so far is true, then the whole arrangement is and was morally reprehensible.

But I have a theory. I think there’s information we aren’t getting.

I suspect that Pink Diamond had no part in, and did not even want, “her” insidious human zoo. It was an arrangement by one or both of her sisters, with her name slapped on it. But why?

Let’s take this apart.

We first learned about the zoo all the way back in “Adventures In Light Distortion”, where Garnet tells us the following:

 “During her reign of terror on Earth, Pink Diamond stole humans from their families as trophies of her conquest.”

And then we get Pearl’s response. Which in retrospect, sounds almost defensive:

 “We had no way to rescue them. We were never able to get to them after the war!

Question: who’s we? The Crystal Gems as a whole, or specifically two people: Pearl and… someone else?

Okay, but that’s just one tiny inflection in Pearl’s voice. And things like tiny inflections in Pearl’s voice have definitely proven important before, but by itself its not really enough to support a theory like this. What else?

Well, we got this information through Garnet. And they have spent a fair bit of time lately establishing that Garnet is fallible, can be lied to by people she trusts, can sometimes jump to conclusions, and most importantly–understandably, innocently, yet nonetheless incorrectly

She demonizes Pink Diamond to the point of total caricature.

So that’s strike #2. We find out about the entire Zoo arrangement via Garnet, and Garnet has been deliberately built up as a character whose head has been packed with misinformation.

But then, that could be coincidence. How do we know she’s not right? The biggest question to answer would be: if PD didn’t want or didn’t build the human Zoo, why did the other diamonds build it for her?

I believe we just found this out, via this conversation in Can’t Go Back.

You begged us for a colony of your own, and now all you want to do is be rid of it! First there were ‘too many organics’. Then their cities were too difficult to dismantle. And now these Crystal Gems?

That’s it. That right there.

PD has been trying to have this conversation with her sisters, about the worth of life on earth, for a very long time.

At first, she told them that the cost in organic life was too great. Blue heard “I wish my colony had fewer organics on it.”

Then she tried telling them how much they were having to destroy–or perhaps even that the natives were defending their cities, that they obviously valued them. What Blue heard was “It’s too haaaaard.”

And what we see in this conversation is that PD, who started the Crystal Gems, has just come to tell them of this group and its ideas about preserving life. What Blue hears is “I’m scared of a Quartz.”

And at some point in the past, my guess is this:

Pink said “But I like the life here on Earth.”

And Blue heard “I want some of these for pets.”

OKAY OKAY SO HOW DOES PETER GET HURT

HMMM…SOMETHING LIKE GSW? THEY HAVE TO DIG THE BULLET OUT?

OUCH YES SO LIKE PETER GETS SHOT WHILE HE’S OUT ON A MISSION AND TONY’S FRANTIC AND HAULS HIM TO LIKE DR. CHO AND THEY TRY TO GIVE HIM ANESTHESIA BUT IT DOESNT WORK

HOW DO THEY FIND OUT IT DOESN’T WORK? THEY START OPERATING ON HIM? IS TONY ALREADY NEXT TO HIM OR IS THAT WHEN HE RUSHES OVER?

I IMAGINE THAT, LIKE, TONY ROLLS UP WITH PETER CRADLED AGAINST THE IRON MAN SUIT, BLOOD ALL OVER THE CHESTPLATE CAUSE PETER’S BLEEDING A LOT, AND THEY KINDA PULL HIM INTO A MEDICAL BED AND START AN IV

BUT LIKE

PETER’S NOT ASLEEP. HE’S STILL IN PAIN.

HE’S MAKING SMALL WHINING NOISES AND GASPING AND TRYING HARD TO ACT LIKE HE’S FINE

“S’okay, M-mr. Stark. I’m fine.”

“YOU’RE NOT FINE, PETER. YOU ARE BLEEDING OUT FROM A HOLE IN YOUR STOMACH.”

AND THEY START THE IV AND TONY’S INTERNALLY LIKE “thank god thank god thank god” AND HE’S BRUSHING HAIR OUT OF PETER’S FACE AND WHISPERING “easy, buddy. It’ll get better soon. You’re okay.”

BUT THEN THE DOCTORS ARE LIKE “we… we don’t understand. He should be out by now.”

AND TONY JUST GETS REALLY QUIET AND HORRIFIED AND WHISPERS, “his metabolism.”

HE TELLS THE DOCTORS THAT HE CAN’T BE NUMBED OR KNOCKED OUT AND THEY ALL KINDS EXCHANGE HORRIFIED GLANCES. DR. CHO TRIES TO STAY CALM AND PROFESSIONAL BUT IN HER MIND SHE CAN’T BELIEVE SHE’S ABOUT TO OPERATE ON A CHILD THAT WILL FEEL EVERYTHING.

SHE LOOKS AT TONY AND JUST WHISPERS “put the suit back on” AND HE’S LIKE “WHAT WHY?!?!” and she gives him the SADDEST look in the world and is like “he’s enhanced and he’s going to fight. You’re going to have to hold him down.”

AND TONY FEELS SICK AT THE THOUGHT. HE HAS TO BE THE ONE TO DO THIS. HE’S NOT SURE IF HE CAN STOMACH IT BUT HE KNOWS HE’S THE ONE THAT HAS TO BE THERE FOR PETER. HE DOESN’T WANT IT TO ME ANYONE ELSE. HE DOESN’T TRUST IT TO BE ANYONE ELSE. SO HE PUTS THE SUIT ON BUT HE KEEPS HIS MASK OFF AND GOES TO PETER’S SIDE. HE HOLDS HIS HAND AND MAKES SURE PETER IS LOOKING HIM IN THE EYES AND SAYS “shhh, it’s okay, buddy. I’m gonna be here the whole time. Don’t worry.”

IT KILLS DR. CHO BUT SHE GIVES PETER A WAD OF GAUZE TO BITE DOWN ON BECAUSE SHE DOESN’T WANT HIM TO HURT HIMSELF AND THE FIRST MINUTE THE TWEEZERS GO INTO THE WOUND HE SCREAMS. AND TONY’S ENTIRE BEING FEELS LIKE IT’S SHATTERING BECAUSE HE HAS TO PIN THIS KID, HIS KID, DOWN WHILE HE FIGHTS AND SOBS AND LOOKS UP AT HIM WITH DESPERATE, PLEADING EYES.

AND TONY CAN’T DO ANYTHING

HE’S LIKE “its okay. I know. I know. I’m so sorry, Peter. It’s okay to scream. You can scream. You can cry. It’s okay.”

AND HE’S THRASHING AND TRYING NOT TO SCREAM BUT THEN CHO DIGS DEEP SOMEWHERE AND PETER CAN’T HELP THE SCREAM HE CHOKES OUT. ONCE HE LET’S ONE OUT HE CAN’T STOP.

HES BEGGING BEHIND THE GAG. HE JUST WANTS IT TO END. HE TRIES SHOVING EVERYONE AWAY. BUT TONY HOLDS HIM DOWN. EXCEPT IT HURTS TONY BECAUSE HE WANTS TO HOLD PETERS FACE AND BRUSH THE CURLS OUT OF HIS FACE BUT HE HAS TO USE BOTH HANDS TO HOLD HIM DOWN.

GOD CAN YOU IMAGINE HIS INTERNAL DIALOGUE? HE’S GIVEN UP EVEN TRYING TO VERBALLY COMFORT THE KID AT THIS POINT BECAUSE HE CAN’T EVEN HEAR OVER HIS OWN SCREAMING AND TONY’S JUST INTERNALLY BEGGING FOR THE KID TO PASS OUT.

DR. CHO IS TOO. EVERYONE IS.

HE’S JUST WAITING FOR HIM TO PASS OUT. THE KID JUST WON’T LET IT HAPPEN. TONY KNOWS HE’S FIGHTING IT. SO HE TELLS DR. CHO TO STOP JUST FOR A SECOND. THE PAIN STOPS AND FOR A MOMENT PETER STOPS SCREAMING AND HE’S JUST PANTING AS TEARS DRIP DOWN THE SIDES OF HIS FACE. TONY LET’S GO OF PETER AND WIPES THE TEARS OFF HIS FACE. HE TALKS TO HIM IN A SOFT VOICE, “okay, kiddo. It’s okay. Dr. Cho is going to finish–.”

“Stop, no more, PLEASE.”

“Shhh, she’s almost finished, Peter. But it’s going to hurt for a little while longer you need to let yourself pass out okay. You won’t feel it anymore.”

BUT PETER IS SHAKING HIS HEAD. HE’S AFRAID. TONY RUNS HIS HANDS THROUGH HIS SWEATY CURLS. “shh, it’s okay, buddy. I’ll be here. I won’t let anything happen. It’s going to be okay.”

AND THEN PETER GIVES A REALLY SHAKY, TERRIFIED NOD, AND TONY LOOKS AT DR. CHO AND IS LIKE “finish it,” AND THE KID DOES THIS HORRIBLE, WET, CHOKED OFF SCREAM AS SHE STARTS AGAIN AND TONY’S USING ONE ARM TO HOLD HIM DOWN AND THE OTHER TO CUP HIS FACE AND HE’S MURMURING “it’s okay, buddy. You’re good. Just let go. I’m here.” AND PETER’S EYES FINALLY ROLL BACK AND TONY HAS NEVER BEEN MORE RELIEVED IN HIS ENTIRE LIFE AND HE FEELS KINDA SICK

BECAUSE HE’S HAPPY THAT HIS KID PASSED OUT. HOW WRONG IS THAT? BUT GOD IT’S SUCH A RELIEF.

HE DOESN’T HAVE TO HOLD HIM DOWN ANYMORE SO HE’S PLAYING WITH HIS HAIR AND WHISPERING TO HIM AND HE’S LIKE, “That’s it buddy. You’re safe. It’s okay.”

AND PETER IS OUT SO HE DOESN’T NEED TO HOLD HIM DOWN BUT TONY REFUSES TO LEAVE HIS SIDE. HE CONTINUES TO HOLD PETER’S FACE AND WHISPER TO HIM.

“that’s it. Stay still. It’s okay. You’re doing great. You’re almost finished. When we’re done, I’ll let you pick dinner, okay? And, and I’ll watch those star wars movies with you. Again. It’s gonna be okay.”

AND HE CONTINUES TO RAMBLE ON IN PETERS EAR AND DR. CHO GIVES HIM A SAD LOOK AS SHE FINISHES UP. SHE’S SEEN TONY SHAKEN UP AFTER A LOT OF BATTLES. BUT NEVER THIS BAD. NOT EVEN WHEN HE’S THE ONE BLEEDING OUT.

TONY ISN’T A RELIGIOUS MAN BUT HE DECIDES THAT SOMEONE MUST BE WATCHING OUT FOR THEM BECAUSE PETER STAYS OUT FOR THE REST OF THE PROCEDURE. AND HE KINDA SLUMPS ACROSS PETER’S CHEST WHEN THEY’RE FINISHED AND WHISPERS “thank god” AND DR. CHO FEELS REALLY BAD ABOUT IT BUT SHE KINDA SLOWLY WALKS OVER AND WHISPERS “he’s probably going to wake up soon” AND TONY DOESNT UNDERSTAND WHY IT SOUNDS SO OMINOUS AND HE’S LIKE “good” AND SHE JUST SLOWLY LOOKS AT HIM AND GOES “I can’t give him pain medication, Tony. He’ll burn through it. And gunshot wounds hurt.”

AND TONYS BACK TO PANICKING BECAUSE WHY DOES IT HAVE TO BE LIKE THIS. WHY DID THIS KID ALWAYS HAVE TO GO THROUGH THIS??? HE’S 15 FREAKING YEARS OLD AND HE’S HAVING A BULLET DUG OUT OF HIS BODY WITHOUT PAIN MEDICATION. TONY IS DEFINITELY THANKFUL HE WAS ASLEEP FOR MOST OF THE OPERATION AND THE STERILIZING. STERILIZING THE WOUND HURT MORE THAN CUTTING INTO IT WOULD.

HE JUST WANTS HIS KID TO GET A BREAK! JUST LEAVE HIM ALONE!

BUT HE’S GOING TO WAKE UP. HE’S GOING TO FEEL THE PAIN SO TONY MAKES HIM AS COMFORTABLE AS HE CAN. HE SETS HIM IN A SOFT BED WITH SOFTER PILLOWS AND BLANKETS. AND HE TAKES HIS HAND AND WAIT BY HIS SIDE UNTIL HE WAKES UP.

AND BECAUSE PETER WENT UNDER FIGHTING, HE WAKES UP FIGHTING TOO. HE GASPS AWAKE AND TRIES TO JERK UPRIGHT AND CHOKES OFF ON A SOB BECAUSE IT HURTS SO, SO MUCH AND TONY’S RIGHT THERE. AND THE MOMENT PETER HEARS TONY’S SOFT WHISPER OF “relax, Peter. I’m right here, kid,” HE DROPS BACK AND WHIMPERS BECAUSE HE’S IN SO MUCH PAIN BUT IT’S OKAY BECAUSE TONY’S HERE AND HE DIDN’T BREAK HIS PROMISE. HE STAYED. HE’LL PROTECT HIM.

FOR PETER, EVERYTHING IS OKAY AS LONG AS TONY TELLS HIM THAT IT IS.

(also, you 100% know that Tony would spend the next few weeks developing and testing a ton of anesthetics and painkillers that can keep up with Peter’s super metabolism, because he’ll never forget the sound of that kid sobbing in pain, and he’s never going to let it happen again.)

How I got better grades significantly because I transformed a complete 300 pages textbook in 13 pages (visual learner)

On the following picture, you’ve got a complete textbook before your eyes. On 13 pages. Yes.

The thing that saved me everytime was this: “Know the structure of the textbook and know the textbook”. It can also be about lessons, but I know a lot of people work with textbooks.

(I did it from 5:30am to 19pm with only 2 hours of sleep because my second finals are in one week, so please don’t be mad about my handwriting)

“A new method? I already have one.” I know we all have our methods. If you like yours and have the results your want, that’s good, keep doing it! But if you’re searching for a new one or like to improve your learning skills, and if you’re a visual learner, I suggest you take a look at mine!

  • Best thing that can happen to you: you’ll see a different way of doing things and it can be what you were looking for!
  • Worst thing that can happen to you: this method is not for you but it made you see things differently, or you still learned something different, or it had the motivation you needed today. It’s not wated time if it didn’t work for you! Note besides: I bet you understood that I don’t like regretting something. Regret is just a weight that I don’t need. Instead, I try to take the best of everything that I could be regretting and turn it into a positive thing (I won’t do this again, I’ll do things differently, I discovered something).

The structure of my post:

  • First, I’ll be talking about this method that I recommand for visual learners,
  • Then, I’ll be showing you why this method works for me.
  • Finally, I’ll be talking about how I discovered this method (before I was so done with millions of flashcards, I got inspired by my teachers).

How I studied Anatomy & Physiology

Anatomy:

  • I’ve said it before & I’ll say it again, Netter is one of a kind guys. It has helped me so much.
  • There’s also an app I used to have on my iphone, I think it was called essential skeleton. Any app/program would do, I especially love the virtual dissection tool because it helped me understand different layers so much better.
  • It can get a little overwhelming with the details but there’s usually a “clinical anatomy” or “applied anatomy” part in the end of every chapter, I prioritized that over everything else because of its clinical relevance and this has not only helped me in my rotations this year but also MCQs in academic usually target this area so .. you’re welcome hahah.
  • The lab is your best friend here, take advantage of every minute you have in there. Understanding is key so for example if I didn’t fully understand the action of a muscle, I’d pull the tendon & see what it does with my own eyes, what I’m saying is I never left the lab without understanding everything because anatomy isn’t one of those things you can just memorize.
  • If your school provides a pre lab learning guide use that, if it doesn’t make your own. Just don’t go into the lab not knowing anything because you will struggle, whereas if you go prepared it’s gonna help you out a ton, you’ll consolidate everything you know & basically be good to go.
  • So here’s what I did to learn an anatomy lecture: Before the class I’d read what we’re studying from Snell’s, then I’d take notes, attend the lecture, go home, go over everything from Netter & my apps (I considered that my pre lab work) and then the next day I’d go into the lab & sort of explain whatever we’re learning either to myself or to my partner. Et voilà, we’re done.

Physiology

This wasn’t really my forte, but here goes nothing.

  • As for physiology I found that textbooks don’t do it for me.
  • So what I would do before class to prepare is watch as many YouTube videos from different sources about whatever we’re studying. I could link all my favorite YouTube channels if you’re interested?
  • Then in class I’d pay FULL UNDIVIDED attention (physiology needs more concentration imo)
  • Then I’d get home and go through the material my school provides, I didn’t even make my own notes in physiology because it was ridiculously time consuming & I needed visual illustrations. Reading it was like passive studying, I couldn’t learn anything no matter how many times I read it.
  • But the one thing that I found helped me the most in physiology is answering a shit ton of MCQs, that’s the only way I could properly learn.
  • So my strategy for physiology was basically pay full attention in class & do a lot of practice questions rather than spend hours memorizing everything from a textbook.

For the anon who wanted this that’s pretty much everything I did regarding these two. Hope you found it helpful!

italeteller  asked:

Hey mom, you're a fandom elder yes? You've seen a lot of, for lack of a better word, stages. So do you have any idea how we ended up on this time where fans attack creators and fellow fans en masse and have no problems with hurling the most vile of accusations for the pettiest of reasons while also constantly digging into every new popular thing for some mud to smear it with? I know fandom has never been complete utopia, but lately it seems it's gotten... unhinged

Gather round the campfire children, and old mother bibs will tell you a tale…

It’s always been this batshit.

No, really. It just comes and goes in cycles, and it’s no coincidence that as we enter into a new conservative age of hell, that purity politics has reared its ugly head once more, picking on some old targets and some new ones too. Because so long as society is always evolving, so too does the levels of mental gymnastics people are willing to do to justify their bigotry. Sometimes it’s fear too. You don’t want your precious thing taken away from you, so lets throw someone else under the bus first.

I think a large part of why it is so much worse in certain online circles is because we have a whole new generation of fans who don’t remember a time when fanfic was underground and heavily censored to “protect the children”, which was actually code for “ban everything gay or move it onto an adult porn site regardless of whether it contains explicit content or not because children are too innocent to understand what gay is and what if it corrupts them an what if, what if, what if…” which is how young me ended up being exposed to a lot of horrific shit at the tender age of 12 because I wanted to read about Princess Leia holding hands with a girl.

So not only do you have a generation of people who don’t understand why mass censorship and witch hunts are going to actively destroy all of fandom, including the bits they like, but they also don’t know how to curate their own fandom spaces, and expect others to do it for them. Which is… yea that’s not how that actually works. Ao3 was never the norm. We used to have to host this shit ourselves, and hope like hell we didn’t get reported, taken down or even sued. And contrary to you sweetly calling me an elder, I am but a toddler at the feet of the true elders of fandom who have been fighting against this kind of thing for longer than I’ve been alive.

And some of it I get, I understand the visceral knee-jerk reaction. Like there’s some fics that the mere concepts of alone turn my stomach, like even if I see the ship name, I feel physically sick. So you know what I do? I blacklist that shit and go back to what doesn’t make me feel awful, and focus on creating content I want to see in the world.

And this concept is absolutely wild to some people because no, if something makes you feel that strongly, surely it must be evil???

Sure! Maybe. But where does that kind of thing end? Who gets to draw the line in the sand, you? me? Someone who will use their power to silence anyone who doesn’t conform to their high standards? What if those standards shift to something you don’t align with, what then? Well too late. Better start building your own fandom space and hope no one reports you and you get taken down and lose all your content. Again. And again. And Again.

So while I agree with you that things of late seem bonkers, it’s not all that unexpected. Annoying and exasperating as it is. And before anyone asks me how we fix it. I have no idea. Would that I could, but I suspect in 30 years someone will be asking someone else the exact same question.

yoi business au - part i

Yuuri barely manages to latch the stall door before hot tears spill from his eyes. He sinks onto the toilet seat, burying his face in his hands.

How had it all gone so wrong? This was meant to be his moment - the day he’d finally be able to prove that the hard work and isolation and expensive schools on the other side of the world were worth it.

Instead, he’s ending his big day in the strangely familiar position of weeping in a bathroom stall

The executive’s words play on repeat. “It’s not that you aren’t qualified,” he said, with a wrinkle of his nose that was louder than his voice. “It’s a matter of cultural fit…”

It was worse than a breakup. It’s not us; it’s you.

The bathroom door swings open on squeaky hinges, and shoes clack across the tile floor. Yuuri clasps both hands over his mouth, muffling the sound of his sobs.

He watches in stifled silence as a pair of shiny black shoes pass by his hiding place. His heart pounds in his ears. The only thing worse than crying in a bathroom is being caught crying in a bathroom.

He listens to the man’s shuffling movements, waiting for him to leave.

The interview wouldn’t have been so bad - Yuuri wouldn’t have been so bad, if not for-

His shuddering gasp echoes off the tile.

The sound of rushing water cuts off abruptly.

“Hello?” The man says, hesitant. “Are you- is everything alright in there? Should I get someone?”

“No,” Yuuri gasps, scrubbing at his face with the sleeve of his overpriced suit. “I’m fine, thank you. I just need a minute.”

“Are you… crying?” He sounds almost as distressed as Yuuri by the idea. His voice drops to a low murmur as he talks to himself, and Yuuri can only make out the word “crying” again.

“I don’t want to talk about it,” Yuuri says hastily. “Don’t worry. I’ll be okay.”

There’s a beat of silence for Yuuri to hope he’ll give up, and then the man says, “Please. Maybe I can help if you tell me.”

The stranger’s voice has a calm, kind note that almost makes Yuuri believe he genuinely wants to help.

“I had a job interview today,” he confesses.

“Oh, congratulations,” the stranger says, his tone breezy. “How did it-” he cuts off abruptly. “That is a stupid question,” he finishes. “Please don’t answer.”

Yuuri makes a choked sound between a laugh and a sob. “How do you think it went?”

“I’m sorry.” The distressed voice is back. The shoes pace outside Yuuri’s stall, tapping on the tile. “I wish I could do something… Oh! I know what cheers me up!”

There’s a quiet shuffling noise, and then a phone slides under the stall door. Yuuri rears back, alarmed, then leans forward to see.

“This is my Makkachin,” the stranger says proudly.

On the tiny screen between Yuuri’s feet is a poodle, tongue lolling out from a teddy bear face. She’s brown, and big, but she looks so much like-

The tears flow once more as Yuuri collapses into his own arms, wracked with sobs.

“OH MY GOD,” the man gasps, and a pale hand scrambles under the door to grab the phone. “I didn’t mean to upset you. Do you not like dogs?”

“My dog,” Yuuri gasps, hearing his words garbled and broken by grief. He can barely understand himself, but somehow manages to explain. Vicchan.

The last tethers of control slip from Yuuri’s hands at the thought. He can hear his own choked sounds amplified by the acoustics, but he can’t find his shame anymore.

Eventually, his cries quiet, then stop. His face is sticky and swollen. He blows his nose on the last scrap of toilet paper. Aside from the grossness, he’s strangely settled, like the dark blanket of heavy air that follows a summer storm.

Yuuri clears his throat and scrubs at his face with the sleeve of his blazer. “Are you still there?” he calls.

“Yes.” The shoes click back into Yuuri’s view beneath the door. “I don’t- I didn’t know what else to do.” His voice drops and he mutters to himself, “Why am I so bad at this?”

“Thank you for waiting for me,” Yuuri interrupts before the stranger can slip further down that path. “It did help, having someone nearby.”

There are no tissues left to dry his face on, but the grief seems to have passed for now. Yuuri lurches to his feet on somewhat noodley legs. “I’m ready to come out now,” he says, sounding much firmer than he feels. “Could you… please leave so I can clean up?”

“Yes. Absolutely.” Relief threads through the stranger’s voice at the reprieve. “I can do that.”

Squeaking hinges, then the quiet thump of the door closing, and Yuuri lets his head drop for a moment to rest against the stall door before disengaging the latch.

The young man in the mirror is a strange creature, with his blotchy skin and deeply shadowed eyes. Yuuri removes his glasses and turns on both taps at the sink. The cool water is soothing on his face, and he slicks his hair back before dabbing at his skin with a paper towel.

It’s the worst day of his life so far, but at least it can’t get any worse. He has nothing left to lose.

He tucks his glasses into his shirt pocket and takes a deep breath, then pushes the door open.

It stops abruptly, jammed against an obstacle.

“Oh, there you are,” says a familiar voice. “I was guarding the door. Are you feeling better?”

Yuuri looks up. Sparkling blue eyes smile down at him from beneath familiar coiffed silver hair - familiar because he just saw it in a portrait, hanging in the boardroom during his interview.

Victor Nikiforov, recently named one of the Top 20 CEOs in the world by Forbes for the second year in a row, offers Yuuri a monogrammed handkerchief.

Some Study Reminders

  • If you’re new to studying, take it easy. Don’t expect to be able to study 16 hours straight. Start with 2-4 hours daily and add periodically until you reach a period of time that you like/want.
  • If you are willing to sacrifice your sleep for studying, be sure it’s quality time because that decision might cost you in the future.
  • Either you study the entire day and night or you go out and have fun, it’s up to you. As long as you understand the consequences of your actions, it’s up to you how you spend your time. I know that half of tumblr is against studying all the time and not having fun, even once in a while, but it’s your decision and you shouldn’t feel pressured by others’ standards.
  • Don’t compare yourself to others unless it motivates you. People aren’t equal. One might be smarter than you. One can be a master at a subject that you can’t understand even after 5 hours. If being competitive helps you, focus on others, if not, avoid this. It will only kill your confidence, motivation and give you depression.
  • Motivation will break up with you and then you need to date discipline and guess what, that isn’t easy either. Just remember that if you didn’t study a day/week/month it’s nothing wrong. Take your time to get back on track; even if it takes you weeks, just don’t give up and try again.
  • Don’t listen to others when they complain. Most probably you will feel in a trap where you will start judging yourself based on that person’s statement. You are you, you do you. You have your limits, you have your skills, you have your methods. Others aren’t a part of your process.
  • It’s okay to be alone. If you have some big plans and your friends can’t understand that you really want to achieve them, then stand alone. You can always make new friends, real friends who understand you and your dreams; however, who knows when you’ll have the chance to achieve your dreams.
  • Know your limits, more or less. It’s alright to push yourself; that’s how you improve but don’t overwhelm yourself with stuff that are way beyond your abilities. As an example, don’t say that you will learn 1 language in 1 week to an advanced level when you have never studied a language before. 
  • You have an inner clock, find out how it works. I sleep 6 hours usually and that’s enough for me. I don’t even need an alarm to wake up and when i do wake up, I’m not tired and i don’t get tired unless i need to sleep again at 10-11pm.
  • I’ll say this again, don’t compare yourself with others. I’ve seen smart people trying to study less because others convinced them that they studied enough or that they were studying way too much. At the same time, i’ve seen people getting depressed because they couldn’t study like someone else. You do you and it doesn’t matter what others think/say. They think you study too much/less, now that’s their problem, not yours.
  • Hear the critics but be careful to which ones you listen to. Many people have the impression that they know you very well and even if they don’t, they think they have the right to judge you and your work. Now, some people actually want to help but some are just jealous. People will like you until you become better than them. 
  • Your studies, your responsabilities. As i said earlier, you do you. If you think going to a movie won’t affect your studies, go ahead, a night off sounds great. However, if you didn’t study for the test you have the next day, you go out and the next day you say you couldn’t do anything because you didn’t have time or whatever excuse, that’s your fault, not time’s fault.
  • Don’t take everything literally. Last month or so i saw a post from someone who was angry that a certain quote was promoting sleep  deprivation. The quote was: “Study while others are sleeping; work while others are loafing; prepare while others are playing; and dream while others are wishing.”; If i take this literally, i should never sleep again while i have a goal/dream in mind and my body will probably die in 10 days without sleep. However, if i don’t take this literally, the message is pretty clear. Wake up earlier than others. They are sleeping but you are working. And from what i’ve seen recently, many students (especially med students) wake up at 5am to study; a time when most people sleep. And this leads me to my next point.
  • Better wake up earlier than going to bed late. Some time ago a teacher told me that the sleep you get between 10pm and 2am is the most important one. (He told me why too but i forgot, it was long time ago) So better wake up earlier than missing your sleep at night. And maybe it’s just me but if i go to bed late in the morning, i sleep more than if i go to sleep around 10pm.
  • I think this is the 3rd time when i mention this but i feel like this is VERY important. Don’t be influenced by others! Sometimes i see so many posts from studyblrs shaming certain habits like studying a lot, caring about grades, not going out, decorating a journal etc. and years ago it affected me  but  i learned that people are different and i shouldn’t expect others to understand me or my decisions. If you like staying home and study while others go out, it’s up to you and a stranger, from hell knows where, has no right to make you feel bad for being yourself. You know how you decided to study, you know why and you know what you want to achieve. There will always be at least 1 person who will be different and have another opinion on certain things so when you see something that you don’t agree with, that’s just anoher point of view from a human with other priorities than you, not a rule. So never feel bad for being yourself.

taehyung is such a sweet person who loves his members unconditionally. he’s always the member that picks up the others when they’re down. he compliments them, showers them with his affection, and reminds them that everything is alright and that they are perfectly fine as who they are. he understands their insecurities and works to be that member that erases them or at least, put those insecurities at rest for awhile. he’s so attentive to the other members’ feelings. this type of thoughtful nature is what makes taehyung not only a good friend but also a very good idol. when the members are insecure, taehyung is always there to have their back. when jin felt a lack of confidence in his choppy bangs, felt bad about his dancing, an interviewer didn’t ask about his graduation or when the members teased him about his age or anything else, taehyung always had his back. it didn’t matter whether it is a mutual thing or not, taehyung did it and will always do it because he doesn’t want his members to feel like they’re lacking because he has confidence in them. when namjoon wanted only taehyung to sing 4 O’clock, taehyung continued to encourage him to sing, when fans at a fansign said they liked bon voyage 1, taehyung immediately said that namjoon wasn’t in half of it and was sad that they liked that one, he tried his best to learn english so that namjoon wouldn’t be burdened with speaking alone when they did american interviews because he is so considerate of their feelings. jimin means a lot to taehyung. his letter to him in bon voyage 2 says everything. he feels like he hasn’t re-paid jimin for what jimin has done for him and continues to work to give him the love that jimin gave him when he was going through a hard time. that in itself is so sweet because you can tell how much taehyung loves jimin and wants him to know that all his worries are for nothing because he’s perfect the way he is and that he shouldn’t be so hard on himself. in burn the stage, jungkook talked about how taehyung helped him come out of his shell and i think that’s a huge thing in itself. taehyung is always showering jungkook with compliments and love just like he does with all the members. even though him and yoongi have different personalities, he understands and accepts yoongi’s personality as different from his but acknowledges that because it is different, when they are together, they are able to do interesting things.saying that since yoongi wants to be a stone in his next life, let him be a stone in his next life but he will carry him around beautiful places is just another way of him doing this. he absolutely admires yoongi and gets all shy when yoongi acts soft with him. he’s an absolutely wonderful person who always talks about loving and stanning ot7. “please love all seven of us”, he says. i love this fact about him. there’s no one more considerate and loveable than him.

A/N: This is the first part of a series I have in mind. It’s my first one, so I’m super excited and please let me know if you would want to read more parts of this.

Beta’d by the wonderful @nickiwinchester97 . Y’all are lucky she puts up with me and my shitty writing because you don’t know what crap you’d get to see if it wasn’t for her.

Suddenly, it was cold again. Too cold actually, but it would have been just right if you’d been wearing anything else than your pajamas. Disoriented, you sat up and shivered as another breeze got the better of you.

“Mom?” you shouted, looking around and trying to remember what happened. Everything that came to your mind was an all-consuming heat, a pain you’d never felt before. “Dad?”

You got up, a little light headed but otherwise okay. You knew you’d get in trouble with your parents when they saw how dirty your pajamas were, but you wiped your hands on them anyway.

Instead of getting a response, you saw a figure emerging from the shadows. With every step he came closer you were more convinced that this wasn’t your father, but a tall and muscular stranger, coming towards you in the middle of the night.

pan-atthedisco  asked:

We had an amazing princess who overcame her loss and developed into an amazing, strong, kind, courageous leader... and a guy who liked her but lacked the development to be her proper match. But instead of developing him, they make him jealous and she evades his advancements because she explicitly doesn't reciprocate. And then they gave us her equal in every way: Lotor, who they manipulated into a villain just so he could be the bad guy who breaks her heart to kickstart Lance's "chances" with her

okay-the1975 said:BUT LOTOR AND ALLURA WERE EQUALS. In such a beautiful way. In a way I find very hard to believe any other character could be. Their differences and similarities were such excellent compliments and there are things only they could’ve understood together.

Yeah honestly the showrunners did lotor, allura and lotura so dirty. Allura was so happy and in love, she was daydreamy and getting what she wanted for once, she was relaxing and having fun, just to tear it out from under her? She had to be wrong AGAIN? She couldn’t have one happy thing in her life, someone who truly understands her and her pain, someone who can give her everything she wants,needs and more? They only seem to care about how lance feels, showing him sulking around and shit but screw allura right?

Allura after spending time with Lotor:

Allura after hearing about Lance’s felings for her:

She was troubled by Lance’s feelings. If the showrunners do throw her and Lance together it’s out of Allura’s guilt

And what the hell was that with Lotor? What did they to do him? He was so out of character. I’m still so confused. He wouldn’t let his generals harm anyone on planet puig back in s3 but he’s okay with killing actual Alteans? what? Lotor hated Haggar for experimenting but he’s doing that on Alteans?? JDS compared Lotor to his friends who were abuse victims and then this season basically said ‘oh yeah lotor is actually evil just like his abusive parents after all’ ????

I can’t imagine how abuse victims who identify with Lotor feel right now. I’m so sorry this season did you guys so dirty, you deserved so much better.

I don’t think there is coming back after this with lotura I’m sorry to say. They could bring Lotor back to life/purify him somehow, but that wouldn’t erase his (out of character) actions with the alteans.

What’s so sad about this on top of everything else is that lotor and allura still have feelings for each other. That’s why we see Allura spacing out, and Lotor pleading with her. When she says ‘you are like your father’ it hurts him deeply. When she said this to him before when he was still imprisoned it didn’t bother him as much, but this time it did because he loves her. And at the end of their big battle, Allura still wanted to save Lotor. She still has feelings for him.

 But nothing will come of it because the showrunners made Lotor make a random ooc 180 and ruin everything they’ve built up and changed about him and lotura’s dynamic. What Lotor did is not a redeemable action, at least not in a way that lotura can recover from. The showrunners fell prey to misogynistic tropes of making the girl wrong, torturing her, etc and like, me personally, I am really hurt by it because I defended them and trusted them and I thought they would do a lot better than this. Allura deserves so much more than the pain they gave her. Please stop torturing WoC and Black girls especially, we’re exhausted. It was the first time we saw Allura so happy and they had to tear it away because poor lance right? men always have to get what they want after all. it seems allura is going to be lance’s prize for maturing just like we feared.

suffice to say, I don’t think anyone else could match up for Allura the way Lotor did. No one. They were literally perfect for each other and Lance himself acknowledged he can’t offer anything for Allura. I thought that was when he was going to step down for their happiness but nah. they’ll probably have allura comfort him like ‘it’s ok i love you for you’ bullshit and call it a night. 

Allura and Lotor deserved better and so did we.

Don't threaten me if you aren't prepared to go through with it .

English is not my first language but my boyfriend told me that my story maybe popular here, but I’m a business owner in another country with very strict libel laws. If you say something bad about someone doesn’t matter if its true or not and it costs them money they can sue you. Its the law in my country and people get sued for it a lot

Just to say example if say you man and you are cheating on your wife and I tell your boss “this man is cheating on his wife” and your boss fire you, you can sue me because you lose your job because I told your boss. Even though it is true that you are cheating on your wife. Stupid law I think, if not true I understand but if true? Why illegal? Anyway my country not perfect.
