I recently read Ta-Nehisi Coates’ Between The World And Me and the above was one of many passages that really shook me. I highly recommend the book if you want to learn more about the Black Lives Matter movement in the US (or if you want to just read some damn fine writing).

Get the book from Amazon here.

Send me quotes please!

I really want to continue this series :) So if you want, send me an ask with your favourite character and a quote of theirs that means something to you, and I’ll see if I can use it! I’m trying not to use romance-specific quotes so that everyone can identify themselves with them regardless of their personal playthrough.

The finished companions can be found here and are also available on Society6 by the way ;)

(Oh yeah, though they’re not technically companions I do intend to go with Josephine and Cullen as well because let’s face it they’re amazing. So if there’s any other non-companion characters you’d like to see, shoot me an ask!)

the signs as oscar wilde quotes.
  • aries: “I don’t want to be at the mercy of my emotions. I want to use them, to enjoy them, and to dominate them” (Dorian Gray; ‘The Picture of Dorian Gray’).
  • taurus: “The good ended happily, and the bad unhappily. That is what Fiction means” (Miss Prism; ‘The Importance of Being Earnest’).
  • gemini: “Do you really think, Arthur, that it is weakness that yields to temptation? I tell you that there are terrible temptations that it requires strength, strength and courage, to yield to” (Sir Robert Chiltern; ‘An Ideal Husband’).
  • cancer: “The mystery of love is greater than the mystery of death. Love only should one consider” (Salomé; ‘Salomé’).
  • leo: “Be warned in time, James, and remain, as I do, incomprehensible: to be great is to be misunderstood” (letter to James McNeill Whistler, 23rd February 1885).
  • virgo: “Don’t come here. I will come to you. Ever yours” (letter to Lord Alfred “Bosie” Douglas, August 1894).
  • libra: “The only difference between the saint and the sinner is that every saint has a past and every sinner has a future” (Lord Illingworth; ‘A Woman Of No Importance’).
  • scorpio: “I am so glad you like that strange coloured book of mine: it contains much of me in it. Basil Hallward is what I think I am: Lord Henry is what the world thinks me: Dorian is what I would like to be — in other ages perhaps” (letter to Ralph Payne, 12th February 1894).
  • sagittarius: “Everyone is worthy of love, except him who thinks that he is. Love is a sacrament that should be taken kneeling” (‘De Profundis’; letter to Lord Arthur “Bosie” Douglas, written during Wilde’s incarceration at Reading Gaol).

Here ya go, guys! My two lock screens with my favorite grump quotes. Even though Danny’s really isn’t an original quote from him, it still makes me laugh every time I hear it ;P.

Sorry if they’re not that great. I tried to make it look like those hipster/aesthetic looking pictures, and it didn’t really turn out that way. But if you do like them and you want to use them, that’s perfectly fine.

My name is on both of them and if you repost PLEASE GIVE ME CREDIT (Charlotte P.F.)

An Explanation of the “May Doma’s Blessings” joke/meme

(this time im not shitposting, the title is what youre actually getting)

I realized that myself and a few others have been making this joke over and over, but I also realize that barely any people have played/watched or read an LP of Gaiden so its an inside joke that excludes most of you.  Apologies to people who (fairly) think explaining a joke ruins it but I feel too bad about being exclusive to not post this.  And hey, maybe it will make some people who dont know Gaiden more comfortable to shitpost with us, and that seems cool to me. Boy I am really long-winded, heres the explanation:

“May Doma’s Blessings” is a boss death quote in the fan translation of Gaiden that most of us are familiar with.  Thats it.  But its funny to us for a few reasons:

  • Multiple bosses say it. 5 or 6 at least.  
  • In a game where theres barely any story to begin with, you really want to learn something about the story or world or at least their Duma worship.  But nope, you kill a boss and get “May Doma’s blessings” again.
  • For being only 3 words long its completely packed to the brim with comedy.  Its what they say when you kill them, and I cant speak for what the original Japanese said, but youd expect it to be something like “God Damn you!” but because Duma is their god and “Duma Damn” would sound silly, then “Duma curse you!” but no, its “blessings” that they go with.
  • On top of that, its passive and an incomplete sentence.  They dont say “Doma Bless You” or “Doma Bless Me” so we dont truly even know who is supposed to be getting the blessing because they ramble on and die mid sentence instead of getting to the point like you would expect from a dying man. 
  • This is made funnier with the repetition of the quote from multiple bosses: none of these fools can finish this same damn sentence. 
  • Finally, Doma got officially localized as Duma so now the one word that didnt used to be wrong is technically incorrect as well.  Beautiful.

If Shadows of Valentia comes out and one of the bosses drops a “May Duma’s blessings….urk!” or something like that when you kill him then you’ll know that somebody up there in the treehouse loves us, or at least they know how to wink at English reading Gaiden fans without being too obvious about it. 

Thanks for reading, and may Doma’s blessings

remembermenotplease  asked:

I'm sorry, this has been bothering me for a while, idk why. But in the chat you did when Sagittarius asks Cancer if their out of cheetos, are Sagittarius and Cancer a couple or are they just best friends. This has really been fucking up my mind so please answer.

here’s where the quote is originally from. in the tweet obviously they’re a couple, but my post doesn’t say “wife” and instead just uses a name, so it can be interpereted however you want I guess

Semi hiatus

Um, my exams started yesterday (13/03) and we are also doing essays and some teachers are giving us some works so it’s getting hard to have time to be here and post things. That’s why I want to “"take a break”“, I won’t be online as much as before and I won’t be posting as much as before. My exams will be over next month (12/04) and then I’ll be back! I’ll have my queue on (24 posts per day, 1 post per hour). Having all those school things and tumblr to take care of was making me really stressed! So I hope you all can understand and won’t unfollow me T^T I’ll be online on the weekends and when I get time.

Thank you for reading ╰(´︶`)╯♡


“But sometimes a little bitterness is what really brings together a good cup of Tea, don’t you think?” -Caddy Brewer, (Alpha Timeline)

@that-one-tea-anon (who wrote the quote)


The stream was feeling down, so I hope this helps a little bit. Take care all of you <3.You’re all beautiful and I wish the best for you.

I want you to know, I am so happy in this moment.  Because here’s the thing about happiness: it’s not a given, it’s not permanent, and it’s fleeting. So, sometimes when we learn that lesson really on in life, that happiness is fleeting and that you have it for a minute and it could be gone the next minute, sometimes the second thing that happens to us after that lesson is we become afraid every time we’re happy of losing it. And I used to do that. I would look at a crowd that was beautiful and loud and gorgeous and singing every word to my songs and I would be so scared because of how happy I was I was so scared of when it would go away.

And I think that we all do that. When we fall in love, we think, “Cool, how long until this ends and I’m having to patch up my bruised, bleeding heart again? How soon until these friends that I love decide that I’m not cool after all and stop hanging out with me? How long until I’m at this party when people found me out that I’m more insecure than anyone else here? How long will I be dancing before someone points at me and think that I look stupid?” These are the things that ruin our happiness and I don’t want anyone, including your own mind and your own fears, to ruin your happiness.

So if you’re happy tonight, allow yourself that and treat yourself to that. You know, sometimes we’re not happy for days on end, weeks on end, months on end. Sometimes, we don’t just have a bad week; sometimes you have a bad year. And sometimes, you go through something so hard, that you feel like any of your mistakes are like marks against your record or something. Like those are gonna stain you forever. But, that’s not the way that it works.

And the cool thing about happiness being fleeting is that it can go away really quickly, but it can come back really quickly and can surprise you when you least expect it.

And when I wrote this song, I was really fighting to find happiness and instead of finding permanent happiness, I found the lesson that I sing about in this song and I went to London and I met a woman named Imogen Heap and told her what I’d been through and I played her this idea I had. And I ended up writing a song with her. And if you know the words to it, please sing along with me.

This song is the last song on the album, and it’s called ‘Clean.’


Taylor Swift

This speech hit home for me, like I’m sure it did for a lot of other people.  So I thought I would write it down and save it so when I’m having one of those days where the happiness is no longer there, I can remind myself that it will come back and I will be happy again. Thank you, taylorswift for saying the words of how I feel daily. 


I got bored and wanted to change my desktop wallpaper, so I made some 707 themed wallpapers!  I really only made these for personal use so the measurements are 2880 x 1800 (unless tumblr resizes them all, in which case I’m sorry), but I figured I’d post some of the better ones here just in case anyone else liked them.  Currently I’m using the one at the top ^_^

As for the binary, I literally just threw 707 quotes into a binary translator ^^;;  The “110-000-110 & 111-000-111″ is a choice you can say to him, and if my research is right it just means “606 & 707″.

As for the wall of binary, the quotes used are:

“Let’s marry in the space station.”

“Every time I log into the messenger, my heart races a bit.”


“I want to leave on you evidence…  that I existed.”

They’re all the same pieces just arranged differently really, but still ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Anyway I hope you guys like them.  Please don’t repost them without permission and all that.

Also you don’t have to, but if you do use any of them I’d love to know ^_^  you could just reblog with a comment at the bottom or leave a reply, whatever’s easier.  Like I said you don’t have to but I’d still love to know ^_^  (I’m not really expecting many people to use them but figured I’d say it anyway)

Have you ever been so sad that you’ve passed the ‘I want to be happy again’ stage and you’ve gone straight to the 'I really don’t care if the world swallows me whole right now because I’m too numb to feel alive anyway’ stage?
Because that’s where I am.
Don’t get me wrong, I used to be happy. Man did I use to be happy.
But now I’m back here.
I say “back here” because I’ve been here before. Four years ago I think.
But as time rolled over into my sixteenth year, I fell in love. He loved me back might I add.
Then everything got to the best it had ever been.
Then it got to the worst it had ever been.
And in between, lies our story.
—  Excerpt from a book I’ll never write (M.R)
My brother cleared his throat. “I wish she knew that I think she is the most hilarious person on Earth. And that whenever she’s not home, I feel like I’m missing my partner in crime.”
My throat tightened. Do not cry. Do not cry.
“I wish she knew that she’s really Mom’s favorite–" 
I shook my head here.
”–the princess she always wanted. That Mom used to dress her up like a little doll and parade her around like Mara was her greatest achievement. I wish Mara knew that I never minded, because she’s my favorite too.” 
― Michelle Hodkin, The Evolution of Mara Dyer

So I’m still sitting here, bawling like a fucking baby. The door creaks open, I’m really, really hoping it’s Sky.


Motherfucker, Faelern. What the fuck does he want?

“What the fuck do you want?” I snapped, hastily wiping my eyes. 

“I was checking that pipe. I was talking to Sky about it yesterday.“ 

"Yeah, fine, whatever!” I probably shouldn’t be taking this out on the landlord, but the sight of him was getting on my damn nerves. 

He looked at me hard. “Are you okay?" 

"Yes, I’m fine!” I said impatiently, “just do what you need to do and get out!" 

"You’re not fine,” he stated, “you’ve been crying.”

“Why do you care anyway?” I snapped.

Faelern shook his head. “Okay then, but I’m not the bad guy here.”

My Home - Chapter 1 - Jacob Frye x Reader

Chapter 2 - Chapter 3 - Chapter 4 - Chapter 5 - Chapter 6 - Chapter 7

A/N: Anonymous requested a story about older Jacob having to rescue the reader from Jack the Ripper. Me, being my over-the-top self, decided to turn this into multiple chapters instead of a one shot. I also received a request to use a certain quote and I feel that it fits with this story so it will be included in either the next chapter or the one after that.

Basically what I wanted to do was find a way to make things a bit more dramatic when he rescues you so it starts off with your relationship with young Jacob. He gets two or three strikes and this chapter is sort of strike one. He messes up and gets you upset and has to find a way to make things right. The next one or two chapters will be strikes and eventually…well, you know. This is working up to the rescue so don’t worry, older Jacob will be in here…I just like extra angst and making people (and myself) suffer.

WORDS: 1378
WARNINGS: None really…just angst

callout for bon enoshimo


previously/also known as:


probably some others i dont know

alright to start off- i know bon has stated not to publically call her out but all the issues i’m going to talk about have been brought to her attention and she refuses to even listen much less apologize for them (that ive seen, if she has in fact apologized for anything here let me know). 

shes even ignored anons (i know because i’ve sent some) about issues or answered in the format of a post without the ask (’@anon i really dont want to talk about that because of drama it will cause’ ((not a direct/actual quote, just an example)) ) which is often used by people as a way to avoid drama/being called out because no one will know what the ask said and therefore wont know about the persons shitty behavior. 

bon also usually deletes drama off her blog shortly after it happens, purposefully making it very hard to hold her accountable for things she says as theres no proof directly on her blog.

so i feel its important to let people know about stuff shes done thats not okay since she wont see that its wrong and wont apologize. she wont be civil about it and right her wrongs and people have a right to know. so here we go

also i’ve never written a formal callout before so if this sucks im sorry lol

getting onto the actual callout. its pretty long, so there is a tl;dr at the end. but please, if you can, read the whole thing. its important and provides a lot of evidence. also all the images are transcribed.  

topics/tws: racism, ableism, guilt tripping, manipulation

“Oh, I think that Lord Tyrion is quite a large man,” Maester Aemon said from the far end of the table. He spoke softly, yet the high officers of the Night’s Watch all fell quiet, the better to hear what the ancient had to say. “I think he is a giant come among us, here at the end of the world.”

Tyrion answered gently, “I’ve been called many things, my lord, but giant is seldom one of them.”

Tyrion Lannister Challenge - Favorite Book // A Game of Thrones

The Clarke x Kane scene really got me surprised. Whoa I didn’t see that much feels coming.

What got me was: Kane was, at first, excluding The Delinquents from leadership as soon as they landed. When Abby and Kane are discussing, she claims “I’m the Chancellor!“ and not much after, Kane shouts "I don’t give a damn about the title! I just want to save our people!”

When Clarke confronts Abby and gives us an epic line (“You may be the Chancellor, but I’m in charge here.“), Kane is open to the idea of trusting her, even first than her own mother ("The Grounders trust Clarke. Maybe we should too.”).

But now, Kane uses the same argument (“I’m the Chancellor”) and Clarke doesn’t dismiss him quickly, like she did with Abby.. Now, the title matters and Kane 100% respects and trusts her leadership choices. “The youth have inherited the Earth” and he knows.
