anonymous asked:

Hi Jenna! How are you doing??? I'm glad Cliff is doing fine, but how are you? Having a person close to you go through medical tribulations can be hard.

You’re very sweet to ask.

I’m doing well, just really tired. Cliff is a trooper and, unfortunately, he’s used to getting poked at by doctors, so he’s taking it all in stride. But his resilience makes the whole situation much easier for me as his PIC. It also helps that he’s an absolutely wonderful patient; very kind, very appreciative, rarely crabby, rarely complains. So many people are fucking insufferable when they’re not feeling well. I’m lucky Cliff isn’t like that.

Anywho, I’m doing well, just bouncing back and forth between helping Cliff, edits, and beta reviews. I finished editing chapter 13 last night and am half done with chapter 14 (it sounds like I’m slaying, but chapter 14 really requires minimal work).

Thanks for asking :)

Ford your thoughts on Steven? Steven your thoughts on Ford?

“Steven is certainly a free spirit. I have to say he’s quite inquisitive, and much like Dipper, he always has plenty of questions for me, just like his mother did years ago. Still, I can’t help but appreciate his zealous curiosity. After all, its a trait I myself share with him.”

“Oh Mr. Ford is so cool! He knows so much about Gravity Falls and Gems, since the Gems and my mom used to help him research all that stuff years ago. At the same time though, I think he misses Mom just like the Gems do, but they all still get along with him and so do I!”

(I’ve said it before but yeah I reiterate what I said about not being able to wait for Ford to get back. It’ll be really interesting to write how he plays off of everyone.)

Hawkeye vs. Deadpool #0

I really appreciated all the little nods to Clint’s deafness in this issue. I’m glad other writers are acknowledging it and it’s not just a temporary thing in Fraction’s run. I also enjoy the fact that Wade apparently knows sign language.

The other thing I love about Back to the Future? There’s literally no context given for why Doc and Marty are friends in the first place. They just are. They don’t really have anything in common, except a sense of loneliness and rejection. Marty’s just a discouraged teen who happens to think Doc’s inventions are pretty nifty and a nice break from the mundanity of life. He has no real interest in science - he just likes hanging out and saying “heavy” when Doc does something cool. Doc appreciates the enthusiasm and casual acceptance of his eccentricities.

And that’s enough to risk their lives for, apparently.

Meet the Artist Using Superheroes to Highlight Racism

Markus Prime is a graphic illustrator who is using his talents to explore issues of race, class, and representation in his new book, “B.R.U.H.”

Markus Prime: “I used to draw black versions of superheroes when I was in middle school and high school. I recently delved back into and it; I just felt like it was necessary, in a way. I can’t give you a super deep reason, but I felt really compelled to put the project together after seeing the response—it really showed me the void, just the lack of representation.”

This man expresses our problems through his illustrations. He helps many people to believe in themselves! And he is brave enough to tell the truth! The truth about the police.

He says it for us! He takes the hit for a lot of people! I appreciate his art! Thank you, Markus Prime!

Black people are superheroes, I know it for a fact!

Don’t Be So Mundane and Predictable

Personality, Character, and your Persona speaks volumes even when the lips on your face are not moving.

Example:

POT: Can I get some more pics?

You: I would love to send more pictures, but/unfortunately/however/therefore…(you just lost him) because he stopped at the transitional word that means no without saying no.

Decent Response: (insert his name here) Thanks for messaging me back, I really appreciate it. The weather is going to be great this week. Let’s schedule a meet up for lunch at (insert 4/5 star restaurant, location, and date here) or dinner at ( insert 4/5 star restaurant, location, and date here). I would really like to meet you! We can confirm each other’s identity, enjoy a fantastic meal, discuss the details of an arrangement with one another and move forward! So what do you say, (insert choice 1) or (insert choice 2)?


This allows you to get a feel automatically if he’s worthy of your time, let alone additional photos. You’ve cut to the chase, got right to the point and letting him know that your time is valuable and you won’t waste it taking pictures to send to him or anyone else for that matter.

Make sure you choose 2 different restaurants as a choice of lunch or dinner, but make sure that they are not far from each other. No more coffee or drinks “quick meets”. You are not meeting your classmates to study nor your friends for happy hour.

Know your worth and challenge him by telling him without really telling him the kinds of places you like. It’s [2015] and technology is improving as I type this. Skyping is too risky for recording reasons, “additional” photos could hurt or harm you. If he’s married, he could lie to his wife and tell her you are the aggressor and won’t leave him alone and he’ll have the pics to prove it. If he’s not married he could be using your pictures to lower other girls’ standards or get them to send him more photos too.

The List

This is from a request I got AGES ago from @gallifreyansass. I’m sorry it took so long, dear!

Summary: Sam finds your sexy “to do” list, and ends up breaking the bed.

Word Count: 1700

Warning: Smut, some dirty talk

A/N: Hope you enjoy it! Feedback always appreciated! Tagging @saxxxology and @gecko9596 because they asked :)

“Come on, Sam, just…please? I need more.” you whined, squirming beneath him, locking your legs around his waist and pulling him closer.

Sam pushed just a little, just enough to let you feel him, the head of his cock just barely inside you. Teasing. And you were gonna bite that damn smirk right off his face if he didn’t really fuck you right now.

Doctor Douchebag Ph.D

I finally have a good story to share with this sub, it happened today. I was just walking back to my car from class and had to cross the professor’s parking lot to get to the student lot. I came across an older man getting into his car and I noticed that his large coffee cup is still on the roof of his car. I’ve done this before and really appreciate when someone tells me that I’m about to drive off with my drink on the roof. So why not pay it forward, right? -“Hey mister, you..” -[In the most condescending tone I have ever heard] “NO! It’s Doctor!!” -“Oh, sorry Doctor…nevermind” So I just stood there and watched as DOCTOR Asshole throws his camry in reverse, spilling his FULL cup of coffee all over his windshield and window. Dr Snarky flashes me a look that could only be a look of remorse mixed with anger. He probably realized that I was just trying to help but was pissed that I decided not to. He didn’t even get out of the car, he just sped off.

I was just rewatching the episode, and it really hit home: 

Lucifer, extremely powerful, proud archangel, could not get past Delphine’s excellent warding. Sam found a spell that would do just that in order to save Dean. 

Sam offered the power of his own soul–and his very life–to make sure the spell worked. He would have willingly sacrificed himself to bring Dean back.

And when he realized Lucifer, his worst nightmare, was on earth and embodied, and when Lucifer threatened Dean, Sam had the presence of mind and quick thinking to banish him with a blood sigil.

And then, to top it all off, despite the emotional upheaval and pain he must have been experiencing, Sam Winchester sat down and offered Dean the opportunity to talk about his painful experiences due to the events of the episode. 

Sam’s consistent selflessness and heroism slay me. That is all.

09x07 “Bad Boys
11x12 “Don’t You Forget about Me”

Gratitude

I think what probably got me most about the Dean and Claire interactions was how it felt like Dean by talking to Claire sort of had a talk to his younger self. How he was acting cocky and like nothing mattered at first when he got to Sonny’s, but then had grown to really love being there, was good in school, etc. Sonny and Jody were major mirrors here both providing something two troubled teens needed the most: understanding, no judgment, just support and some guidelines. And both of them, Dean and Claire, found something they haven’t been looking for but in the end came to appreciate and care for. So when Dean lectured Claire here, I can’t help wonder if he flashed back to this moment when he came to Sonny’s and how despite keeping the hunting background, he was able to enjoy normal life. So much that he had friends, was good in school and made the wrestling team. And don’t think that last bit doesn’t make me emotional given the upcoming wrestling episode and the rest of the season because there is a lot Dean will have to wrestle with not just out there, but maybe mosty within.

PLEASE TAKE A SECOND TO READ

This is my very public and much needed thank you to @linmanuel

That man in the photo is my father. He’s my greatest hero and one of the strongest people I know. He’s kind, honest, strong willed, and steadfast with his beliefs. He’s everything I aspire to be.

When I was five years old my father went deaf. With hearing aids he got some of his hearing back, but one thing he never got back was the ability to really appreciate music. He just couldn’t understand it, and even after this last summer when he got cochlear implants, he always said it wasn’t the same. Songs with drawn out notes just became muddled in his head. The computer couldn’t compute.

I’ve been in musical theatre since I was eleven years old. I’ve always loved it. But one thing I always hated was that my father couldn’t appreciate musicals like I wished he could. He can’t hear much in theaters, and he never had a chance on understanding cast albums. Even if he could hear and understand, my father has never been an extremely artistic person. Theatre was just something that, hearing or deaf, I don’t know if he’d ever have as huge of an interest in as I did.

Then Hamilton came into our lives.

My father is obsessed with it. Due to the fact that it’s spoken word and not so sing-songy, he can understand everything that’s happening. With the loud bass and drums and the accentuated speech, my father for the first time can understand a musical. And he absolutely adores it. He keeps talking about how he’s going to read the six hundred page book, and how he wants him and I to go to New York to see it because he wants to experience a musical in person and truly understand it and be able to fully appreciate it. I don’t know if I’ve ever seen him this excited over something we have in common. This show has changed his life and he adores it.

So this is my public thank you to @linmanuel. You gave a deaf father of a thespian something to bond with his kid over. You were able to show him the passion of a musical in a way that he could finally understand. You have made my father and I even closer, something I didn’t think was possible. You gave him a new shot in the world of theatre, and he’s not throwing it away any time soon.

Hamilton really is changing lives. Thank you for that, Lin.

I’m just gonna put this out there:

LEWIS HAS BEEN WORKING SO HARD TO KEEP THE CHANNEL UP BY HIMSELF and he is working his adorable little butt off making content with a bunch of different people and still all the comments are about Simon coming back. He has already explained what is going on, and complaining more will not make Simon come back. PLEASE try and recognize all of the work Lewis is doing and appreciate the content that is going up.

lol ok screw it just 1 more TPP pic. I had to do a tribute ;w;

 

 

So I think even though thousands of people watched the final battle, only those who really paid attention to the blow-by-blow last moments wil fully appreciate just how close the battle was. aa-j almost took a blizzard, which missed, allowing him to finish off blastoise with thundershock. I had this headcanon that he saw the blizzard coming and had a bit of a crisis of confidence, before getting his courage to evade and strike back to win the match ;;;;;

 

Of course this tribute is inspired by paul stanley’s live to win, whose lyrics are referenced here

Scan - George Harrison and Bob Dylan playing tennis, Isle of Wight, 1969, from George’s camera.

Scanned from Living in the Material World

Photo © The Harrison Family

“I really like George.” - Bob Dylan to Chris O’Dell, 1975; Miss O’Dell: Hard Days and Long Nights with The Beatles, The Stones, Bob Dylan, and Eric Clapton
 
“George got stuck with being the Beatle that had to fight to get songs on records because of Lennon and McCartney. Well, who wouldn’t get stuck?”

“If George had had his own group and was writing his own songs back then, he’d have been probably just as big as anybody.” - Bob Dylan, NME, 2007

“[George] was also Bob Dylan’s biggest fan. He could quote the lyrics to practically any Dylan song you could come up with.” - Jim Keltner, Rolling Stone, 2002

“George quoted Bob like people quote Scripture. Bob really adored George, too. George used to hang over the balcony videoing Bob while Bob wasn’t aware of it. Bob would be sitting at the piano playing, and George would tape it and listen to it all night.”
Q: “So George had his own private Dylan bootlegs?”
TP: “Yeah. One day George was hiding in the hedge at the house where we were recording. As everybody flew off, George would rise up out of the bushes with his video going. And he did that with Bob.” - Tom Petty, Rolling Stone, 2002 [x]

“He’s fantastic, you know. There’s not a lot of people in the world who I see from a historical point of view. Five hundred years grom now, looking back in history, I think he will still be the man, Bob, he just takes the cake.” - George Harrison, 1987 [x]

“I’ve always liked the way George Harrison plays guitar - restrained and good.” - Bob Dylan

“They had a soul connection.” - Olivia Harrison on George and Bob, Rolling Stone, 2011

“He was a giant, a great, great soul, with all the humanity, all the wit and humor, all the wisdom, the spirituality, the commen sense of a man and compassion for people. He inspired love and had the strength of a hundred men.
He was like the sun, the flowers and the moon, and we will miss him enormously. The world is a profoundly emptier place without him.” - Bob Dylan on George Harrison, Rolling Stone, 2002 [x]

Meet The BUTTERCREAMS

The first ever proper post made by me on this blog. Just 7 boys that I love and things about them that I appreciate.


Conor Maynard 

Conor is definitely the talented one in the group. At least when it’s about music. He’s got 2 bomb albums and his YouTube covers are amazing. He’s (in a good way) extremely cheeky and loves to joke around like 24/7. Because of that he seems to be always in a good mood. Back to the music, his voice is incredibly calming and extraordinary. He is so funny and really likeable because he doesn’t take himself too serious. He literally throws penis jokes all the time and when the boys joke about his music he’s never bothered at all and just jokes around with them.


Joe Sugg

Joe is a fucking cute smol bean. He is incredibly creative but kinda never admits it. He’s definitely a family person and loves them more than anything. Also he is always there for his friends and is very observant, always interested in how his loved ones are. He’s also reflective and would never do something he isn’t sure about. Joe always tries to bring good content for his community because he knows how far he can reach out and how many people watch him. And even though he’s the popular from the boys, he never show’s that off in any way.


Caspar Lee 

If I had to describe this cutie in one word it would be simply “sunshine”. Caspar is freaking kind hearted. He’s the most care free and doesn’t care of negative opinions as long as he and his loved ones are happy. He never acts different than he is and seems to be always optimistic and never in a bad mood. He shows so much appreciation towards his friends and loves to make people happy as well at all costs. 


Josh Pieters

(Josh’s in the middle, couldn’t find any better gifs )

Firstly this man got hella attractive ginger hair. He’s amazingly confident and he shows it off in a good way. He gives a damn about negative comments, especially when it’s about his hair or his height. He encourages his viewers to love themselves and tries to make them smile and maybe a bit more confident too. All of this makes him to a really courageous person to me as well. He’s so fun loving, literally always wearing a beautiful bright smile on his face.


Oli White

Oli is the sweetest guy ever. He’s like a teddy bear that is fucking cuddle worthy. He’s got a bit more the quiet personality between all of them but is definitely not boring. He’s one of the most ambitious people I’ve ever seen. He received so much since he’s doing YouTube so that he now even wrote a book. If someone needs him, no matter why or for what, he’d always help them or be there for them, especially when it’s about his family and mostly his little brother James ‘cause he’s so reliable. Also he’s very thoughtful and always keeps himself and the other boys grounded.


Michael Pearce

(sadly I couldn’t find any proper pictures of this beautiful one)

Mikey is literally the cutest thing in the world. He’s not that popular yet and I always feel like that makes him kinda insecure even though he’s so loveable and beautiful. He loves when he’s with his boys and they love it when he’s around. They always say Mikey is easy to prank and they sometimes make a bit fun (nothing bad) about him but he just never throws things back, he’s so big hearted and simply loves his friends. He’s extremely clumsy and he sometimes doesn’t know how to find the right words what makes him even cuter. He’d never be any jealous of the boys because they received more success in the past years (he only started his Channel weeks ago), he’s just really proud of them and 100% too unappreciated!


Jack Maynard 

What a handsome one, oh my god… But he’s definitely not just a pretty face. He’s always trying to make people happy. His laugh just catches you. He’s so caring about other people and loves everyone. Jack is one of the funniest guys ever and just as cheeky as Conor. He’s the life of the party and does what he wants, always trying to involve his friends. He does not show it off that much but he’s clearly Conors number 1 fan. He’s the proudest of his Brother and of course also his sister. He sometimes seems to be a badass fuckboy but is actually a little puppy because he’s just so down to earth and very dedicated.


All in all those guys are just amazing. They’re so funny and genuine. Just adorable. Fucking loveable dorks who are the bestest friends. All of them love their community and are so dedicated in their job. But the most important, they’ve got the strongest and most satisfying friendship ever.

Can we just appreciate how incredibly professional Minho was during today’s performance? Not only did he performed with an ankle that he could barely even walk with, but he nailed all his parts, sang the base notes through all the choruses, all the while maintaining the brightest smile in the fucking world. 

Like his injury isn’t hurting like hell at all. 

I almost choked up when I saw this little moment on music bank where he stumbles away from the stage only to turn around with all smiles afterwards for the final chorus (around 4:10 of this video, right before Taemin’s high note). Every time he jumped during the performance I winced because really, how much would that have to hurt if he had to lie down immediately once the recording ended?  

The fact that he could’ve easily justified sitting out from performing but didn’t just shows the lengths he’d go to give us a perfect stage. He always tries his best to hide his pain so that the fandom doesn’t worry about him (but we always do anyways). 

This boy does so, so much for us all the fucking time and it pains me that people outside the fandom don’t recognise his hardwork and passion, writing him off only as the ‘handsome but useless’ one of the group.

Choi Minho you the real mvp (’:
