idk if someone has posted this yet so

Humans are Weird

So, I just thought of my own humans-are-the-weird-ones thing. What if humans were the only race to develop clothing and other things that are used simply to change our appearance. The other races don’t use clothing for protection from their home environments, and use vehicles for exploring non-native environments. Armor exists, but in a non-ornamental way, and generally doesn’t do much to change appearance, or is at least non-individualized. Makeup and nail polish are unknown, though tattoos and piercings are known to be used by some cultures for ranking and identification purposes and are not used ornamentally by any race other than humans. Hairstyles are not unknown, but are all generally for practical (keep it out of the way! I need insulation! I need shade!) reasons.

At first, aliens just think that there are a lot more humans than there really are, that humans that look alike with small differences are just family members, and that humans just naturally tend to be known solely by their family name. (Like, Alien “Ralph” meets Human “Bella Tailor” one day, sees her the next day in a different outfit, and thinks that he/she is meeting a relative of the human he/she met earlier, and that their family name is “BellaTailor.”)

Humans, at first, just thought that aliens were terrible at matching faces and names… and that they were apparently all nudists, but hey, who cares? Different cultures and races and all that, you know.

“Hello, BellaTailor. My name is Ralph. I believe I met your relative the other day. How is she doing?”

“I do not have a sister, Ralph. You must be mistaken.”

“That cannot be! She looks just like you, only more… pink, I believe is the correct color-word… and has your name! You must be relatives! It would be too much of a coincidence for you to not be related!”

“Where… exactly… did you meet my ‘sister’?” 

“Oh! We were on the same shuttle together. I must admit I am surprised; I thought that there was only one human on the ship’s roster.”

“Ralph, I am the human you met there. Remember how we talked about how uncomfortable those one-race-fits-all shuttle seats are?”

“But… no… you are different colors and patterns! This is a terrible joke. I wouldn’t suggest trying it on anyone else.”

“Dude, all I did was change my clothes. It’s not like I’m a whole ‘nother person, despite what commercials and such would have you believe.”


“Right… nudist… um… let me just… show you?”

Bella precedes to take off her top (not like they’ll care, they’re nudist anyway, right? eep, here goes nothing, really hope this is okay). Ralph thinks she means that they’re a race that sheds their skin, though he’s put out and puzzled over how no one mentioned that fact to anyone. After all, shedded skins can really clutter up an area, especially at the rate she seems to shed, though it could explain a few things. Bella, frustrated, puts her top back on, takes Ralph to her quarters, and shows him her clothing (which was still mostly packed due to limited storage space). Ralph finally sort-of understands, but the idea is totally trippy and weird to him.

“What did you think I brought so much luggage for?” 

“Well, I didn’t really want to pry, and your planet is… a bit… cluttered…”

*sigh* “Dude, I can’t… I just… urgh! WHY ME?!?!?!”

After many misunderstandings the aliens are brought to understand that humans can change their appearance in many ways, practically at-will. 

Then the whole issue of “camouflage” comes up. By this point, humans have developed advanced camouflage that automatically mimics the wearer’s surroundings. The other races react in various ways. Some are rather neutral about this discovery. Others are afraid. But many desire to obtain the art and secrets of “camouflage” for themselves. The earth and humans are now at the center of a conflict that borders on war - Intergalactic war. Because we’re the only race to have actually thought of camouflage. Thankfully, the other races begin to catch on before full-blown war is unleashed, but it is a very close thing.

@howtotrainyournana @crossroadsdimension Look! I came up with one! :D YAY for tired-brain-creativity! WHOOO (don’t really feel tired now, but I should be, and I know I will be when I have to wake up in four hours. :/ why does the coffee only seem to work when you actually want/need to sleep?)

Has anyone drawn what Viktor might have thought Chihoko looked like yet? Yuuri said that “shichihoko” is all glittering gold, and likes to stretch on top of Hatsetsu castle

And Viktor thought she might be Chinese…? I think? Because of the double first name (Shi Chihoko) (idk I read that on one post somewhere

So like… in Viktor’s mind she was probably a super fancy, slender athlete of some kind, who wore a lot of glittery gold clothes and accessories, and who regularly climbed to the top of Hatsetsu castle to stretch

Like I really want to see someone try to depict this seductress ex lover that Viktor was envisioning

I'm worried abouT WHETHER IT'S REAL OR NOT CUZ a few years ago in Gravity Falls the crew actually made a fake screenshot/set up like that and spread it online omg

yE i heard abt that omg. im still kinda holding out that it’s real bc it was posted by someone who hasn’t been previously confirmed to have been associated with vld, and through an instagram story, so if they wanted to fabricate smth like gravity falls did why not play it through someone like josh or bex who are p vocal on twitter?

anonymous asked:

Yet another blmatsu has been exposed for pedophilia and lying about being a survivor! So how long you gonna keep validating these ugly bitches with your whole "anti kink shaming/pro shipping!" bullshit? Just know that when a child gets raped out there by someone in the blmatsu community you basically told the pedophile them and their pedophilia kink were valid! uwu

Idk where to start but pedophilia isn’t a kink anon.

“Yet another” there’s only one person I’ve heard of who preyed on a minor, and according to one kiwifarms post they used the promise of giving $600 of illegal hormone drugs to groom their victim in another country so please do tell me how someone in the blmatsu community told this person to commit a crime? How does anyone saying “ship what you want” get someone to groom a IRL minor?

And one person out of like thousands of blmatsu fans committed a crime, are you trying to suggest these thousands of fans who like a fictional ship are criminals in waiting? If so damn, have you tried applying to be an FBI agent? They could use your deduction skills anon! I wonder why the government hasn’t banned incestuous fictional siblings if it can cause a person to harm a IRL minor hmmm….I mean if we’re going by your logic anon, if a rapist likes the color orange well that must mean all people who like the color orange is a rapist!!11!

Anon….what’s your favorite color?

I got an idea for a Klance au

Ok so hear me up: HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON AU ((idk if it’s been done before or if it even is a good idea and it just kinda ppñopped but..)) Dragons as lions that were like denied and feared at first and Lance finds his lion/dragon and Keith as Astrid ….

anathesniper replied to your post: out:// So if I want to like approach someone I’m…

//start talking about heacanons and your favorite characters?

gouseiki replied to your postout:// So if I want to like approach someone I’m…

I have yet to figure that out myself ahah ha……………… ))

wwarchild replied to your postout:// So if I want to like approach someone I’m…

i’m still not 100% sure on how to do this haha. but idk sometimes commenting on posts or liking posts about headcanons and other things usually starts up a conversation for me??

fademind replied to your postout:// So if I want to like approach someone I’m…

Idk i have the same problem, but you could initiate conversation by asking them abt their headcanons for their muse, or send them a meme related to their muse

out:// All of this is actually pretty good advice :o Though sometimes I deffo gotta wait to find someone posting a meme that I can send them something for and I keep missing my mark accidentally. But I think that might be the way to go, just wait it out & send a meme or two, wait for a hc post and talk about that. :D Seems like the way to go ♥ Honestly that’s probably the right way to strike up a convo with me ( I shoulda thought about that honestly oops )

Personally I’d given thought to just saying hi, throwing a compliment ( ofc in honesty b/c I do like the way they write ) and questioning if they wanted to thread but I’mma be real these other ways look much better-
