That’s right, I’m back at it again. With wings this time! And legs! (Pixie boots were kinda a given)
Heh, but yeah. Last picture I drew for you, I was so grateful that you actually responded to it. And I’m.. again.. very blunt. Though, I’ve been giving it a lot of thought lately in how I’m going to say this, but I should really stop over thinking for my own good and just say it.
Your art inspires many and kinda speaks to me in a weird way. Like.. shows your personality a bit. The little #tags you write, here and there, are quite enjoyable and sometimes even make me laugh and/or smile.
I don’t know you, but I can tell you’re an amazing, kind, talented, and over all great person. I’d love to get to know you better. Though I’m pretty sure I’m to shy to do this kind of thing like.. ever. I can’t shake the feeling that we could be pretty great friends.
Sorry for my overly awkward and pretty awful proposal to initiate a friendship, but it’s all I got.
I have a friend that is quite mean, i understand why he's like that, I mean, he makes mean jokes and mean answers only to make people know he is not weak or controllable. Me as a introverted and shy person sometimes I tend to change words or pronounce it in the wrong way, and he goes like telling everybody to laugh at me because of that and i hate it. I love him, but it fucking bothers me so much... I don't know what to do, should i try to make new friends? I'm really bad at this things
I’m sorry to say this, but that “friend” of yours doesn’t act like one. Friends take care of each other not belittling us. My advice is to talk to him and let him know how his behavior makes you feel. If he doesn’t do anything about it then you should make new friends. The is nothing worse than surrounding yourself with people bother you on such a deep level.
Title:The Bet Author:@firethesound Rating: PG-13 Word Count: 5,800 Summary: Harry really should know better than to make any sort of bet with a Slytherin.
fic is just so awesome! It starts with Harry having a Very Bad Day,
and of course it only gets worse when he bumps into Malfoy – quite
literally, too! ^^
ANYWAY, one things leads
to another and the next thing Harry knows he’s doing a bet with Malfoy
on who wins the upcoming Quidditch game. And you know what? The loser
has to grand one demand of the winner. Anything the winner wants. :D I won’t tell you what happens but oh man! It’s so awesome!
At the risk of being a buzzkill, tbh that line is a straight up mistranslation. Mikleo was talking about how tense HE gets watching Sorey run headfirst at problems. I'm not sure how they messed that up, but it made me go ?????? when I heard it in the localization.
A BUZZKILL THAT CLARIFIES IS SO MUCH BETTER THAN NEEDLESS HYPE!
But AAAAAAAAAAAAHHH that literally doesn’t make it much better. “Rose, please join bc Sorey is dumb and worries me and us seraphs can’t share his burdens quite the way another fellow human can” is not really something that should convince anyone, Mikleo. smh Though then again, you’re trying to convince very pure-hearted people. Taking that into account, it really does 100% work
Thank you so much, though! This makes things a lot clearer, and honestly, just makes me even more hyped up to get a closer look to the characters’ dialogues for the latter parts of the game. Thanks again! :’D
Hello how are you I have a question. So say I've decided to travel to another state. I have friends out there . He wants me to stay 3 days and I'm quite sure he's expecting sex . He says he will take me shopping and sight seeing. How much money should I ask him for before I come out here ? Should I ask for anything at all. He's paying for my ticket out there and things... I'm fairly new to this. So I'm really not sure
I’m going to answer your specific
question in a second, but first, I want to warn you about traveling to meet a
POT/SD for the first time. Make sure
your first meeting with him is like a typical meet and greet; do so at a public
place, like a coffee shop or something like that, and go your separate ways
when it is done. In other words, do not
go back to his hotel room or home! And
do not plan on “shacking up” with him for the duration of your trip!
So, if your plan is to head out to his
location and stay with him in a room for the three days, I think that is a big
mistake and could possibly be dangerous.
Now, the fact that you have friends out there helps matters a little
bit, but still, they will not be able to do you any good if you are locked up
in a hotel room and chained (against your will) to the bed!
If the meet and greet goes well and you
feel comfortable enough to spend more time with him while you are in town, you
can make plans accordingly.
Okay, with that initial warning out of
the way, let’s turn to the questions at hand. The fact that he is paying for
your ticket to get out there is a given and is NOT compensation for your
companionship! In other words, if an out
of town POT/SD wants you to come to him, he “pays the freight” and that is not
part of the allowance! The allowance is
on top of that.
Further, I never think that the promise
of “shopping” constitutes a fair “allowance”.
First, his idea of shopping may be buying you a pair of jeans at the
Gap. Hardly seems lucrative! Second, unless you have a set idea of how
much he plans to spend on “shopping”, you’re leaving the amount of your
compensation up to his discretion, and that is not fair! Finally, clothes are always nice, but, I have
to think that you are interested in getting cash! You can go and buy clothes with the money he
provides, if you want, but you may want the money to pay bills or for savings!
So, you should expect and require
compensation! The question becomes how
much should he pay you for an extended “stay” of three days. Let me start off with my typical response when
a sugar baby asks my opinion of what a fair allowance should be:
I typically don’t pass “judgment” on
whether a proposed or actual allowance is “reasonable”, except in the most
extreme circumstances, because I firmly believe that the only person who can
and has the right to make that determination is you! If you feel it is
fair and good, and if you are comfortable with the allowance and what you have
to do as “your part of the bargain”, then that’s all there is to it!
Now, having said that, I can tell you that there is an
average range that I think is reasonable and fair:
I believe that the vast majority of SBs
typically receive somewhere between $300 and $1,000 “per meet”.
In “smaller” towns, the amount paid may be on the lower end of the range
and in “larger markets”, it may skew to the higher end of the range.
In your case, we are not talking about
a “monthly allowance”, but more along the lines of a single trip. Who knows, if all goes well, you may see him
again, but this may be a “one time deal” even so.
I think treating this as a “per meet”
calculation as detailed above helps. So, let’s assume that
you are going to stay with your friends but hang out with this guy during the
afternoon/evening, several hours at most, but not “over night”. And, let’s further assume that sex is going
to be part of this equation. I think
using my range above gives you a good idea what you should charge EACH DAY. Further, if you are planning on “over nights”
with him, you should charge the higher end of that range (and maybe more, if
you want) for EACH DAY. Remember, honey,
your time has value. And, if he doesn’t
want to pay you for your time, then, I guess he doesn’t get the pleasure of
your company and the pleasure of getting laid!
In any event, decide on what you want
and tell him before the plans are made.
Work out the terms of the arrangement before you get on that plane,
train or bus! And make sure you get the
money off of him before he gets the clothes off of you!
I was tagged by @dandelioncherokee to list 10 things that make me happy, and to tag 10 people. So… here we go!
1. My husband
It should go without saying that he makes me happy, but he really does. He’s my best friend, and always will be.
Mine in particular, but tbh, any will do. You can’t be sad when you’re looking at a a little squish nose fuzzybutt.
3. My band.
I can’t actually express how happy playing music makes me. If I could earn enough out of it to quit the day job I’d do it in a flash. Check out Penny for The Workhouse - we’re on iTunes, so get our EPs and help us on our way (shameless self promotion!)
I’m damn good at it. I love baking, and I love veganizing recipes. Still working on my macarons. It’s frustrating how it seems to be the one thing every other vegan baker except me can now manage. And there are only so many chickpeas you can eat….
I absolutely love getting in the car, turning the music up, going for a drive and singing my heart out. And sarcastically giving anyone who laughs at me while doing it a little wave and introducing them to my middle finger.
Yup. I’m a gamer nerd. And proud.
So I used to scare people all year round for a living, and did so for many, many years. But one by one all the permanent scare mazes in London have closed down. And it’s the best job in the world, so now I only get to do it at Halloween. Sad times. But fun times at Halloween, at least!
8. Cooking for other people.
I guess I could have lumped this in with baking, but they are kinda different. I love the art of baking; I find it really relaxing, and incredibly artistic. But cooking for friends, and seeing people devour the food I’ve made them and getting compliments on it, really puts a smile on my face
9. When people tell me they’ve gone veggie/vegan because of me
Nothing in the world beats that feeling. I still can’t quite get over how many messages I had about that because of Sabotaged Heart. Those of you who stopped eating meat because of that fic brought a happy tear both to mine, and to vegan!Peeta’s eye :’)
10. Being near the sea
Doesn’t happen as often as I’d like, but the sound of waves crashing on a beach is genuinely the most relaxing sound you can hear :’)
You know. For someone who honestly isn’t that interested in the contents of smut and NSFW content, as a whole… I follow quite a few NSFW creators…
I dunno man their work is just so damn pretty and well-made. Have you seen the things people can make/draw/write? That stuff is BEAUTIFUL, like holy hell. That’s some A+ content right there and they’re just… making it for the sake of making/sharing it. And I respect the HELL out of those levels of dedication.
You can tell a lot of love and thought and time goes into those sorts of pieces.
Not to say there isn’t a lot of love or thought put into SFW pieces, but… I dunno. Maybe I’m just weird *laughs*
I was wondering if I could bounce something off you? So I'm working on this darned fic, and as much as I'm trying to make Eggman more bombastic ... he's, like, coming out either super-evil or super-grumpy bear. He's really testy with his temper as well. But I'm worried his portrayal won't "click" with readers. The thing is, I'm not sure if the story necessarily requires him to be bombastic. Should I just stick with my gut and fix this kind of stuff later, or wait to see where this is going?
Hm… That’s quite a pickle and one I’m not certain of the answer for…
On one hand, I’m thinking that you should stick to your gut and fix this later cause that portrayal does sound like something that won’t click with people to an extent. But I’m also thinking that you should wait and see where this goes, cause for all we know this portrayal may actually end up working out and being bombastic is a core part of Eggman’s character.
I guess wait and see where this goes and then change if you end up not liking the direction. Though I would suggest you ask other fans about this, like Vertekins and Dr. Crusher, and maybe get a consensus ^^;
Have you seen the hashtag? On a good week, I can commit to 5 or 6 days of yoga practise but then there are those weeks where I’m feeling unmotivated or I’m really busy and even though I know it’ll help, the thought of getting on my mat isn’t very appealing. These are the weeks where I tell myself I should start daily practise because when you’ve been practising for a while, a week without yoga makes you feel quite unbalanced. Back in January, I did manage to commit to 30 days of yoga (with Adriene) and I felt amazing! I was balanced, I had more energy and my body felt stronger. During those 30 days, I practised first thing in the morning, before lunch, before dinner or even at midnight when I didn’t really feel like it, but forced myself to anyway. So, at the same time, on the 31st day, I was actually thankful for the break!
For me, practising every day had both its positives and negatives. Before committing to something like that, I think it’s best to be more educated about the effects of daily practise. So if you’ve decided you want to give #YogaEveryDamnDay a go, I’ve come up with the following tips to help you do so safely.
- As with anything, doing something repetitively can have negative effects, even if what you are doing is considered healthy. If you choose to practise every day, you will need to vary your routine as doing the same asanas could lead to repetitive strain injury. So get out of your comfort zone and try different poses, positions and flows – so long as you don’t push further than your body is currently capable of.
- Be sure to balance out the stretches with the strength poses - it can have a negative effect on your joints if you are too flexible. For example, when doing certain poses you won’t need strength to hold yourself - your flexibility overrides that. This can be the case for those that are ‘hypermobile’ – their joints naturally move further than the normal range. This can cause injury as the ligaments and joints aren’t supported by muscle.
To avoid injury you need to be aware of your body’s alignment, are your feet hip-width apart? Are your wrists underneath your shoulders? You also need to be aware of your breath - if you’re holding your breath or breathing heavily, it could be a sign that you’re pushing yourself too hard.
- Notice how you’re feeling, both mentally and physically. If you’re still aching from the day before, it may be best to sit this session out, or if you’re feeling lazy, let yourself be lazy! Don’t force yourself just because you think you ‘should’ practise, show yourself some love and go with how you feel.
- It could be useful to set aside a specific time for your practise, where you won’t be disturbed or feel rushed.
You also need to bear in mind however, that yoga is so much more than the stuff you do on your mat, it’s a lifestyle. Yes, sometimes we need a down-dog to de-stress, but does that relaxation you feel afterwards stop as soon as you step off your mat? The connection that develops between mind, body and soul grows stronger with each practise and stays with you whatever you’re doing (if you let it). Simply taking one mindful breath can help you feel that connection, helping you bring mindfulness into all parts of your life to create a more conscious lifestyle.
As well as mindfulness, just some other life lessons you can take from yoga include; being honest with yourself and others, being kind to your body, being true to who you are, not comparing yourself or your life to others, being happy and accepting of what you have and keeping an open mind.
Living with these values in mind is practising #YogaEveryDamnDay even on the days your mat stays rolled up in the corner!
tfc does get more interesting as it goes on, but you shouldn't expect it to be like cp because really the only things they have in common is that there's a slowburn queer couple and the books get better as they go on. other than that, the atmosphere and the characters and the story and the writing style and basically /everything/ is so so different. however, i think you should definitely keep reading because in the end you might find it was worth it.
Yeah, I’m definitely learning that, it’s quite obvious. And it’s not clever nor appropriate to make comparisons between these two series, it’s just me being disappointed that I dind’t have the same huge and immediate fascination for TFC. I know that most people say of the first book of CP what they say of the first book of TFC (it’s hard, keep going, the other two books will make it better), but the truth is that I LOVED CP from the very prologue! I was as hooked as one can be! The same isn’t happening now, but I also found today, while busy with work and daily stuff, that I kept going with casual thoughts to the book, to these problematic boys, to what it is and what could be; so I guess I’m somehow more intrigued and engaged than I consciously realise! I am definitely keep reading, yes! Thank you for helping :)
The rules are that you have to answer their questions and then make up 11 questions of your own and tag people.
1. What film have you rewatched the most? Probably Howl’s Moving Castle or Star Wars: The Force Awakens. I love both.
2. What are your pet peeves? Lol. How long do we have? I have so many. I hate messes and repetitive noises, people touching me without permission, people doing things for attention, and I think I should stop thinking about my pet peeves actually, otherwise I’m going to make myself really mad.
3. How many languages do you speak and what is your native language? My native language is English, and to be quite honest I can’t speak many other languages, although I have a working knowledge of French.
4. Which language(s) would you like to learn one day? I’d love to learn Russian. Mainly because I have a great interest in non-Latin based languages, and I just think it’d be cool.
5. What was your first fandom? Um… I think the very first fandom I was part of was probably… Pandora Hearts? It was one of the first anime series I got into, but it was a real small fandom, so I guess it doesn’t count.
6. What was your dream job when you were a child? Lol. I wanted to be an astronaut, a forensic scientist or a police detective.
7. What is a subject you could talk about forever? Uh… I don’t know. Maybe… Attack on Titan, or maybe tea?? Idk.
8. Who is your most hated celebrity and why? I don’t really know a lot of celebrities to be quite honest. I can’t say I hate any in particular.
9. What’s the strangest thing you’ve ever eaten? I’m the pickiest eater ever, so nothing. Unless you count that one time I ate a dog shit flavoured jelly bean.
10. What is the weirdest habit you have? Lol. I have many, many weird habits. My biggest weird habit is probably eating things in pairs. I don’t know why I do it, it’s just a habit. Like… if I have a bowl of pasta, I have to eat the little pieces in twos, or other even amounts. I also have to sleep with the covers over my head. Again, I don’t know why. There’s more but I can’t be bothered to go through them all.
11. What is your favourite quote? I don’t see the point of quotes and whatever… But I guess if I had to choose a favourite, it’d be “If you don’t know what you’re living for, you haven’t yet lived.” It’s something I feel is quite meaningful, tbh.
Now, my own questions:
1. What does your dream house look like?
2. What’s your favourite smell?
3. Which hand do you use?
4. Do you have any odd talents or quirks?
5. What do you think you would have been in a past life?
6. In a similar vein to no.5, what role would you play if your life was a story?
7. What star sign do you think you fit with the most? Is it the one you actually are?
8. What’s your most precious possession?
9. If you’ve heard of the trolley problem, what would you decide to do? Save five people by killing one, or save one person by killing five?
There's this guy I kind of have a casual thing with but he's so flaky and I feel like I always have to be the one who makes time for him and adjusts my schedule but he never makes time for me. I'm not sure if I should quit before things get too deep or really invest in us.
Ew leave him lol there are much better people out there
"H-Hey Tobi? Um... There's nothing wrong but... Uh." Kenneth points his fingers at one another, looking towards him nervously. "I don't want to make you uncomfortable, but um.. Well, how do you view our relationship, is what I should start with asking? I'm not just... Some witch to you, am I?"
Tobias remained silent. How to put this into words exactly? Were they just friends? No, he wouldn’t have gone out of his way this much for a friend, for anyone really.
It was only at this point he realized how serious the question he was asking really was, his face turning quite red as such. He was especially bad at these kinda things, playful flirting was fine, fun even. However he never really knew what to do or say when he became serious.
“I- Well obviously not just ‘some witch’, no.” Why was he even asking? It’s not like I stay in the same place for too long, sure people had asked him to stay here, he’d made promises to never leave people.
He never really kept his promises though.
“I… Ah, I like you ‘suppose.” He stuttered, like an idiot. Fantastic.
