Does anybody else remember a time, long long ago, when you could just enjoy things?

You could watch a movie and just appreciate it instead of over analyzing every single scene to make sure there’s nothing remotely offensive about it.

You could have a favorite character and just like them and appreciate how great they were written and portrayed, without being told you’re terrible because they’re a villain. Even though they’re FICTIONAL and most likely were deliberately written to be likable. (Even if they were written as an evil character, I still think you have a right to like them, but maybe that’s just me)

You could love and be a fan of the actors without having to go full on FBI agent, looking into their backgrounds to make sure they are 100% perfect and had never made a mistake ever.

You could post about said actor without some busybody little fandom cop, slithering into your inbox to tell you(all too happily) that your fave is “problematic” (god, I fucking hate that word), and you’re disgusting if you still like them.

I’m in my 30’s so I remember those good ole days and it’s kind of sad to know, that most of you will never truly know how great that was. That’s a time long since forgotten. Bummer.

honestly jongin sounded so upset with himself when he was talking and like just all around really bummed out. it’s really pitiful that they had him stay at the concert when he can’t even perform and you know how much of a sweetheart he is so he’s most definitely beating himself up over this. i just hope he knows we understand and support him and want him to put himself first because he so rarely does that. he’s so selfless and hardworking and joyful. i don’t know how he does it but the world does not deserve this angel.

Happy Birthday Zelda Fitzgerald! Read the Author’s Breathtaking & Erratic Love Letters to Scott

To honor Zelda’s birthday, July 24, we are celebrating her love with F. Scott Fitzgerald. “The Romance between F. Scott and Zelda Fitzgerald was one of the most passionate and tumultuous of all time. Through his alcoholism and her mental illness, his career lows and her institutional confinement, their devotion to each other endured for over twenty two years.” Below you can find excerpts from her beautifully, abstractly written letters to her love, Scott.

George Morikawa, the author of the long running series Hajime no Ippo (27 years old, 1147 chapters to date, and 114 volumes thus far) has drawn a Gruvia piece to pay tribute to Fairy Tail’s 10th anniversary. View all artwork by other mangaka for the occasion here.

As you can see, this is not the first time Morikawa-sensei has drawn Gruvia. The first picture (Mashima-sensei comments he’s excited and touched about) is from another milestone (I think, if someone knows exactly where that would be appreciated) and is rather old, but he says that he loves these two (Juvia and Gray) the most in FT (favorite characters). His opinion has not changed after all these years, which bodes well for the pairing because Mashima-sensei seems to be pretty close to him! Morikawa-sensei and Mashima-sensei tweet each other quite often on twitter. Some of you will recognize Morikawa-sensei’s twitter account since it appears on Mashima-sensei’s so often. In fact, just three days ago Mashima-sensei retweeted this. XD

Anyway just found it pretty neat. Mashima’s former assistant also drew Juvia this year as well.

Birthday dinner

Hello! I’m a dark brown sista in my mid 20s, and I love your blog so I have my first ever story time to tell y'all! IM Shaking from excitement while i write this so excuse my typos! and this just happened so I’m writing it all out while my memory is fresh. I went to my friends pre bash birthday dinner just now (dinner before her party tonight) and let me tell you! I met the sweetest, most handsome Japanese guy I ever laid eyes on! he was there at another table with this handsome and also kind! Black man! Our tables were so close, so when we got there we sat down, ordered our food and then a few minutes later they came in and I thought it was some of my friends friends so I said Hello to them, thinking she knows them and he was so sweet he gave me a smile and said hello! and oh lord! so gorgeous, but I was so embarrassed, because my friend was like" uhhhh you know them ? they fine?“ So I told her I thought they were here for your dinner party and she told me, “No, I wish girl!” (face palm), I was so embarrassed, she kept turning around looking at them and I begged her to stop! but she couldn’t help it , they were handsome. BUT that didn’t stop him from talking to me still.

But before he talked to me again, I was scared to look at him from embarrassment, so we get our food and I’m talking to others around me and I wanted to look at him and kept telling myself, don’t do it, finally looked over at him and he’s staring dead at me ahahaha and how do I know? because he waved at me and smiled and I waved to him and he said, “I like your hair clip”, I had a sparkly butterfly clip and I told him thank you! And my friend (who was sitting in front of me) kept making faces saying “you betta get him girl” and being silly, and I’m just like stop! and he kept looking over at me! I swear, I usually stuff my face while eating, but I was eating so slow and proper trying to be cute. and playing with the curls in my face, so I try to low key look over at him again and pretend that I’m fixing my hair and not only is he looking up at me again but his friend also had his back turned, both looking dead at me. And I looked away so fast, I was shaking a little, because I get shy around guys I like, and I heard the Black guy speaking Japanese to him and I was like, Ok! I see you speaking Japanese, that’s so cool! I had no idea what was being said, but I looked over at them AGAIN and he was staring at me once again and my other friend saw it this time and he asked me “Why is he looking at you, do you have something in your teeth” ahaha! no I didn’t! But I’m so glad I’m not the only one that saw that he kept staring at me!

Before I continue, I have to point out that

I knew he reminded me of someone but I couldn’t point it out until later I went home and looked it up for like an hour trying to figure it out and finallly I go his name, he looks dead on like this Japanese actor named  Sota Fukushi!!!! I don’t know if you’ve ever heard of him, I even showed my friends and they thought it was the same guy and asked me how did I find him so fast and she called me a stalker! ahaha! He looks EXACTLY! to the T, Like Sota especially in this picture (I hope you can see it): *now i can’t stop looking up pictures of this Japanese actor, i need help!! ahaha*

So it was about time for us to leave so that we could go buy things for the party! The entire night I was blushing because I could literally feel him staring at me❤️ so I got a carry out plate (could barely eat because of him!) and while I was talking to my guy friend, I got up walking off sadly because I wanted to see him again! And I forgot my carry out so I was walking back to my table and I look up and see my friend talking to them and I was thinking omg! What is she saying?! Will she invite them to her party tonight?! Did she tell him I like him? Is she trying to get with him?! I was like forget my carry out! Let me walk out before she sees me and embarrass me! So I left my plate there! HHaha! But then she called put my name and was pretending like I didn’t hear her and kept walking so she yelled my name!! And I said “sorry I didn’t hear you girl!” (I did hear her!) she told me to come here and I gladly did I can’t lie, I picked up my carry out and said “oh I didn’t see this” ahaha! So here I am face to face …..O M G UP CLOSE!!!! LORD JESUS!!!!!! TALK ABOUT DROP DEAD HANDSOME!!! I was just thinking lord am I dreaming?! Up close he’s deadly and he looks like he should be a celebrity too! And why the fuck did he have to have dimples?!!! My weakness! You can really see them when he looks to the side instead of fave to face because when I walked over he just looked down and smiled shyly!

Ok back to it! So before I even walked over all the way she said to me that “they wanted to know where you went!” 0_o (happy me!) so I told them my name, they told me there’s, I’ll call him ‘Sotal’ lol! shook their hands, we said nice to meet one another and my friend said “He’s coming to my birthday party tonight, I invited him” I was so happy! But then I was like “oh that’s great! But Which one?” Laughing and she pointed to SOTA!!! I was so happy my heart dropped, his friend had to leave town so it’s just him and he said he’d bring his other friend so he doesn’t have to come alone, i told him that’s something I would do honestly! We didn’t talk much but he exchanged numbers with my friend (and later being the great friend that she is she gave me his number too and I was happy! ) they both were so sweet And they hugged us both! (He smell so fucking good!!!) and we said to him see you there! You better show up etc. and as we were walking off I looked back at him trying to be sexy and I did not know he was looking dead at me again!! So I was like “see you later again” ahaha and he laughed and said “I’ll see you there! I promise” I’m crying!!! The party is TONIGHT!!! So if he actually shows up and something happens I’ll tell you again! I’m so nervy! I gotta look good tonight! And also if I have a few drinks and get bold maybe we can take a picture together and I can show you how dreamy he is and how beat my outfit is!! or might make a story time video, I might have so much to say! Love you guys! Wish me luck tonight!

BTS Reaction To You Fangirling Over EXO

A/N: This is a re-upload from the old “thestorytellerofkpop” account! None of the gifs belong to me and all credit goes to the original owners! :3 -Admin Germane

Jin: “So you bias D.O? Ah, I can see why, he’s a very talented singer jagi. I’m glad that you bias people that are similar to me. Handsome, talented, you have very good taste in men.” *not effected at all*

Suga: “Why do you keep screaming about EXO’s new comeback? Don’t you know that we just came back too? Y/N, come here and listen to our new album, I made most of the songs on here so I know you’re bound to fall in love with one of them.”

J-Hope: “Yah, Y/N, why do you keep trying to dance like Kai? Don’t you know that I can teach you how to dance? See jagiya, look, I can dance too! Don’t you wanna dance with me?”

Rap Monster: “Who? Chanyeol? A better rapper than me? Y/N, he may be good, but he isn’t great like me. You need proof? C’mon over here and let me show you how a real rapper uses his tongue.” *pervert Joonie activated*

Jimin: “Xiumin-hyung? You really bias him? Yeah, I guess he’s cute and all but he’s not as cute as me right Y/N? Oh, you’re just gonna keep squealing about how adorable he is? Okay jagiya, you keep doing that then.”

V: “Baekhyun is your bias? Ew, that’s weird having you bias my mom like that. Maybe you should pay more attention to me instead Y/N, then everything can be less weird okay?”

Jungkook: “So Sehun’s your bias huh? You must have a thing for maknaes, huh Y/N? But really who can blame you, I mean look at me for example. You can not, not find this face attractive right jagiya? Jagiya? Oh you’re fangirling over Sehun again, that’s cool I guess…”

to him;
You might not be aware of this but.. After I met you, things started to change slowly. The broken pieces began to heal. Although, to be honest, I never thought they would. You made me realize how important is to talk, to share, to be around people, and most importantly to love again. The way I used to look at what is called “love” was full of regrets and range. I always thought that a life with love, would be like living in a doorless prison, the one you can not escape from. Somehow, you managed to change all that by only using your sweet words. I do not know how your words have a great impact on me. It started to scare me how much words can do. Kill you in a glance but also brings you to life once again. You brought out the best version of me, and I am forever grateful. You inspire me, and that’s what I love the most about you.

Black women low key are getting fed up with black men (I know not all of you are about upgrading I.e. Getting someone white when you get money, fame, or power)

But I kinda want black men to go without our support on a massive scale. Just for a bit. Let them truly feel the weight of the world we’ve been holding back for them. Why do they get white wives but ask for black women’s support? Also, I’m okay with the whole “I just fell in love, didn’t expect she’d be white..” But most of them just look for one criteria (white woman, that’s it)

Hey Tierney I've feeling pretty negative today because of the whole con thing (pretty much all my ships have been f/f queerbaiting ships with a few non canon m/f so ET's quote while not having any impact on canon has made me feel terrible) and I'm pretty sure Steroline is the only ship that's really become canon for me, so would you mind adding some beautiful gifs to this answer alongside why you love Bellarke? Pretty please x

i ship bellarke because they’re best friends

who are always there for each other and supporting each other BUT can still call each other out on their mistakes, while always forgiving each other for their wrong doings

Originally posted by henryhcavill

because they know each other better than anyone else does, and understand each other in a way no one else ever can

Originally posted by regaliamocisospiri

because even though they’re constantly separated due to outside circumstances, they always always always find a way back to each other

Originally posted by saviourblake-archive

because they always know what to say to each other, to either hurt or heal, and almost always use it to heal, because more than anything they each just want the other to be happy and safe

Originally posted by fyeahbellarke

because they’re instinctual with each other, in a way that they aren’t with anyone else. they know how to be together, how to work together

Originally posted by bellarke

because we’ve had 3 seasons now to watch them grow closer and closer, to watch them develop from enemies to best friends and partners, to more. because we’ll have a whole new season soon, to watch them keep growing and developing and becoming intimate in a new way

Originally posted by insertacoolurl

because they trust each other more than anyone, and always will

Originally posted by kcismyreligion

because they love each other, romantic or platonic right now it doesn’t matter. they love each other, they trust each other, they care about each other’s happiness and safety, and all of that is what makes a healthy beautiful relationship :)

This was the last conversation between her and I. It’s been almost three weeks since we last spoke, and I think about her every day, and am constantly reminded of her by my surroundings (definitely fire hydrants ‘cause they look like Minions and she hated Minions). I would’ve swam across the ocean for this girl. She was the most beautiful, smart, and talented individual I ever met… we just met at the wrong time. It was the most civilized breakup ever, and I wish her nothing but the best. She’s going to go on to do great things, and the next guy that gets her will be the luckiest person on the planet. “I never said I loved you, but I meant it all along.” - Bad Bad Hats

“[southern Louisiana] So I found this on the toilet paper at work and have never seen a bug like this before ((all I have is my phone for pictures, sorry))”-toxipop

Oh I just love getting ID requests for this parasitoid wasp!   It’s one of my favorite little wasps.  You know I love beneficial insects/arachnids/etc- and sure, there are many of those that will help rid your home of cockroaches- but most also target other prey. But of all the beneficial insects this ensign wasp perhaps wins the prize for most beneficial!!   The reason is this:  They are very very picky about what they feed their young.  They exclusively target cockroach egg cases to parasitize!   That means just one little female cute black stubby wasp butt can wipe out THOUSANDS of cockroaches!  If you see one of these in your home- LEAVE IT ALONE.  Free-of-charge natural roach eliminator!   Maybe your work has some roaches she is planning on taking care of…  Adults, as in all wasps, eat nectar and are also important pollinators.  Here is one on bugguide.

I am REALLY new to the fandom, like I barely watched s1-s3 a couple of months ago, and I discovered your youtube channel which fueled my obsession even more! I've seen people talking about the sherlock fandom on tumblr for years and I never bothered to watch it until just recently and my god, it is the most beautiful and heart-pounding show I have ever watched. I'm in love with it all, and your videos are just, phenomenal. I saw your reaction to watching the new trailer and AGH my heart! xx

Thank you so much!!! You’re joining at a very exciting time, things are about to change forever.

I love Dorian and will most likely draw him but HELL NO TO DORAELIN.


In which I make a giant headcanon post based on one fucking sentence from the Halo wiki

The Jiralhanae before being absorbed into the Covenant, had a polytheistic religion…however unlike most polytheistic beliefs, they did not have a large amount of gods. They only had three. Soirapt, Teash, and Warial, the three Lords of the Moons, which also served as the three afterlife destinations for Jiralhanae.

Soirapt and their moon (”Lords” is an unexact translation, all three Jiralhanae gods are in fact genderless) was the home to the greatest Doisac had to offer. Chieftains who brought glory to their packs, ancient heroes, soldiers who died to protect their packs, women who devoted their lives to their womenly roles. This moon was their resting place. Notably it was the only moon not colonized after the Covenant came, even though the others were, because of its sacredness.

Teash and their moon was the home to those who neither did good or bad, they just lived their lives. This includes average Chieftains and soldiers who didn’t really do much good, but also didn’t activily ruin anything, and those who did things such as trade and craft which held society together, but didn’t really get lauded for it. All children who died were believed to go to this moon, as they never lived long enough to become good or bad. It was believed most of the dead went here.

Warial and their moon was the home to the worst Jiralhanae to ever live. This is where the criminals, traitors and cowards went. It was the destination for all who brought ruin to their packs, even if it was unintentional. While Teash ended up having a somewhat respectable community of colonists, Warial served only as a haven for the undesirables of society, for no one else would want to step foot on it. 

The spirits of the dead only were on the moons during the night, when the sun rised, the spirits came to Doisac to serve as vassals to their lunar lords.

The spirits under Soirapt, brought glory in battle, helped packs gain land and resources, watched over the births of children, and made sure all were fed and healthy.

The spirits under Teash, helped oversee craft and trade, and also looked over natural phenomena that was not considered beneficial nor terrible for the Jiralhanae, such as vegetation (since the Jiralhanae were carnivores). They also were said to look after children as they grew.

The spirits under Warial only brought despair, failure in battle, pain, suffering, miscarriages, plague, pestilence, famine, drought, anything that could be the end of a pack, were their doing. 

Because it was obvious that Soirapt couldn’t serve every pack (as both sides can’t win a battle for example) the Jiralhanae prayed to the gods, and tried to win the favor of Soirapt or to ward away Warial’s influence. 

That TVD Goodbye Video

Firstly, I want to say I love my followers, y’all are like my crew, because I mentioned that I didn’t see the goodbye vid and so many of you popped up in my chat with all kinds of links, so thanks for that!

Secondly, I love what Kat said about that little girl who saw her at a panel and started bawling and her mother told Kat, “She said ‘Mommy, she looks like me’“ because Kat subtly but not inadvertently referenced the significance, the importance and the power of representation for WOC and on a show as problematic as TVD, it’s refreshing and wonderful to hear Kat address that and it was the most emotional I was watching the video because the impact that meet must’ve had for all three women involved?

Thirdly, if there is anything, anything this goodbye video reinforced, it’s that Stefan and Elena, their relationship, their love, their commitment to each other is what anchored the show, is what is at the heart of the show, it is what made the show special. Undoubtedly, Kevin was emotional because he’s speaking about the end of something he helped create but he was the most emotional when discussing Stelena; there was a personal stock in that relationship; there was a personal investment in writing their story and it shows. It is telling that he didn’t mention the relationships between Jeremy and Elena or Stefan and Damon or Caroline and Bonnie when talking about the root of the show, those dynamics are important, I’m not saying they aren’t, but when he discussed what spoke to him, when he discussed the foundation, when he discussed the heart of the show, it was Stefan and Elena. They were built to be the centre that sprouts out other storylines and other dynamics, they were built to be the nucleus, they were built to be the heart, that’s what they were and the show can keep trying to deny it and ignore it and erase it but Stefan and Elena, Paul and Nina, they’re undeniable. It will always be Stelena.

And for those of you who want to watch it:

Ah, the bible. The most controversial work of fiction in existence. The fandom is so intense they think it's all real! I know, crazy right? Only a bunch of idiots would think there is some prick in the clouds judging everyone, deciding who gets into his club when they die. What a pile of crap. I can't even understand how people believe in this rubbish. You'd think after all the shit that happened because of this it'd be banned.

I’m sorry that you have such a venomous view of Christians, anon. Considering the very unfortunate history of debates attached to it, it comes as no surprise.

I won’t ask you to visit a local church or listen to a sermon in the hopes of changing your views; you are welcome to investigate it yourself, and that is YOUR choice.

All I ask is that you treat others with kindness. Many people turn to religion of every kind out there for personal peace and understanding, and it is cruel to mock something they hold dearly. Yes, some misuse the same faith that preaches kindness to be cruel to others, and that is absolutely wrong.

Even so, answering cruelty with cruelty gets us nowhere. It only repeats the cycle. If we’re ever going to break this cycle, we must show kindness and love to others.

I hope you are at peace, anon; and if not, I pray that you find it soon.

So, Here's the Deal

Ski Lodge happened. Whether you’re happy or sad about it, angry or just confused, I get that you want to share your feelings. But, let’s be real here: it IS a fictional show. 5 years down the road, is it really going to matter anymore?
The reason I say this, is because I have seen posts and comments, death threats, and all kinds of problematic posts (on both sides) that are a cause for a concern. Most of this fandom are young, and have not experienced what the older generation has experienced. Granted, we didn’t have to worry about social media, but nowadays, we do.
Do me a favor, when you go on social media to post your thoughts, PLEASE THINK BEFORE YOU TYPE. What you say can severely affect your future. What you say on social media lasts forever, and can affect whatever goals in life you set for yourself.
Some employers will look at your social media accounts. If you say anything they find remotely threatening, you could lose out on an opportunity. Most of you are becoming young adults. You haven’t gotten to your full potential yet. Don’t ruin that with one post.
Whether your happy Rucas is a couple, happy Joshaya is a couple, happy Rilaya confirmed they are endgame, or are upset because Lucaya didn’t work out, don’t be that person who has Disney executives contact you, banning you from tapings, and contact the police about your threatening behavior. It could end up on your permanent record.
