if anybody knows what i mean

What are the Dragon Rider’s ages?

Does anybody know? Because I’ve always thought that Hiccup’s the oldest seeing as how he seems to be the most mature out of all of them and the smartest, but that doesn’t necessarily mean he’s the oldest. Maybe Fishlegs is the oldest? But I really don’t know and I can’t find the info on it anywhere. Does anybody know? This is how I always thought there ages went:

Hiccup, Astrid, Fishlegs, Snotlout, Tuffnut and Ruffnut (by the way, which twin do you think is older? I think they should point that out sometime in RTTE) but that’s me looking at them from a Race to the Edge/HTTYD 2 standpoint. Now back in HTTYD 1/DOB/ROB I’d think Hiccup would be the youngest- but I highly doubt he is. I’m pretty sure Astrid is younger then him at least by a couple of months…

Any ideas?

Interviewer: What’s “free” to you, Nina?
Nina Simone: What’s “free” to me?
Interviewer: Yeah
Nina Simone: Same thing it is to you. You tell me.
Interviewer: No, no, you tell me [laughs]
Nina Simone: [laughs] It’s just a feeling. It’s just a feeling. It’s like, “How do you tell somebody how it feels to be in love?” How are you going to tell anybody who has not been in love how it feels to be in love? You cannot do it to save your life. You can describe things but you can’t tell them, but you know it when it happens. That’s what I mean by “free”. 

QUESTION: Are you going to take America out of the world’s lead of confronting climate change?
 

TRUMP: I’m looking at it very closely….I’ll tell you what. I have an open mind to it. We’re going to look very carefully. It’s one issue that’s interesting because there are few things where there’s more division than climate change… .
 

It’s a very complex subject. I’m not sure anybody is ever going to really know. I know we have, they say they have science on one side but then they also have those horrible emails that were sent between the scientists… .
  

QUESTION: When you say an open mind, you mean you’re just not sure whether human activity causes climate change? Do you think human activity is or isn’t connected?
 

TRUMP: I think right now … well, I think there is some connectivity. There is some, something. It depends on how much. It also depends on how much it’s going to cost our companies.

— 

Trump also flatly says here that we may not ever know who is right in the dispute over whether climate change poses the dire long-term threat that the scientific consensus tells us it does.

Good to know that how much it’s going to cost our companies is WAY more important than preserving life all over the fucking planet, you fucking idiot.

why are people saying connor was abusive? idk where in canon is the fact that connor is abusive to his family addressed in canon? i feel like it isnt. all we see of him interacting with his family is his brief interaction with them in anybody have a map…. he wasn’t abusive, he was a snarky teenager. the only thing we know beyond what we clearly see is what zoe and larry say in requiem… we see zoe very clearly both in anybody have a map and in requiem blame her brother completely for his mental illness, she mirrors her parents opinion on it - connor’s drug problem is HIS fault and we see them view it as an annoyance not as a facet of his illness. larry is mad that connor “threw [the world that larry gave him] away”… i.e. larry gave him a good life, a good house, made sure they were in a good financial situation… basically “you’ve got a good life, why are you depressed.”

yes, we see connor being an ass to his family…. but i don’t think anything he did was anywhere close to abuse? he’s a kid who is sick and he is alone and his family isn’t doing anything to truly help him. connor is in no way perfect. he is not soft or pure…. but none of these characters are perfect. that’s their beauty. don’t put connor murphy into the “cinnamon roll” box, but don’t put him into the villain box either. as much as connor failed his family, they failed him.

(edit: i forgot what zoe said about him banging on her door etc., which is obviously inexcusable. i apologize for my mistake. just… remember that connor is a scared & lonely kid don’t villainize him for exhibiting ugly symptoms of mental illness that you can’t romanticize. obviously mental illness is NOT an excuse for abuse (i was in an emotionally abusive relationship for over a year and my abuser was mentally ill) but… don’t put any of these characters in a box theyre all so beautifully complex and deeply flawed and they deserve more than a box.)

what mike says: ever since you joined this team, it’s been about you 24/7. it’s just all anybody talks about, it’s all anybody thinks about.

what mike means: ever since you entered my life, it’s all about you 24/7. i can’t stop talking about you, you are everything i think about.

what mike says: because i’ve spent about 100 more hours talking to her than you, and i’m not falling in love with her. you’re not in love because you don’t know her.

what mike means: you are not in love with ginny baker, you can’t because you don’t know her. but i can, because i notice every little thing about her. I AM IN LOVE WITH GINNY BAKER BECAUSE I KNOW HER.

anonymous asked:

“there’s no way in hell i could fall in love with someone like you” + jerejean ??

me: is a hoe and can’t avoid a soulmate au even though nobody asked for one

Jean knew his soulmate’s name when he was four years old, sitting on the couch with his mother.

“Mama,” he asked in French, staring at the letters on the inside of his wrist, “what does this mean?”

She laughed as she brushed his fingers away, slowly pronouncing the word Jeremy so her son could copy the sounds. “It means that your soulmate is going to have that name, my love. See, I have your father’s right here.” She turned her wrist over, and Jean stared at the lines of his father’s handwriting, spelling his name out in black ink against his mother’s pale skin.

“I don’t know anybody named Jeremy,” Jean argued, pouting.

“I know, but one day you will. And he will have your name on his wrist too.”


Jean meets Jeremy Knox while he is still playing for the Ravens, at a fall banquet. Jean had not been permitted to leave Riko or Kevin’s side, but luckily for them, Jeremy approached and shook all of their hands with an enthusiasm unparalleled to anything Jean had ever seen before. Jean ignored the pleasant feeling bubbling in his chest as their hands touched, because any sign of recognition would only make Riko angrier.

“So good to see you guys here. Swanky event, huh?” His eyes landed on Jean, as if expecting him to answer, but Jean knew better, and Kevin stepped in before it got awkward.

“It’s nice to see you too, Jeremy. The Trojans played a great game last week, your work effort is truly admirable.”

Kevin and Jeremy chatted away for another few minutes, but as soon as Jeremy walked away, Riko had a grip so tight around Jean’s wrist that it took a fierce effort not to flinch.

“Moreau,” Riko spits in Japanese, a cruel grin on his face, “happy to meet your soulmate?”

Jean doesn’t think it could be Jeremy. They couldn’t be more different, and besides, Jean knows it’s pointless to hope. He survives one day at a time, there’s no use in fantasizing about a future that might not come.

“I don’t believe in that garbage,” Jean answers, voice level. “Knox is a naive fool who thinks he can succeed on kindness and not skill.”

That seemed to satisfy Riko for now, and Jean took care to not let his gaze linger on Jeremy for the rest of the night.


By the time Jean gets to California, most of the physical bruises and cuts have healed, and slowly he’s working on the emotional ones. He can hardly believe that this is happening, and the fact that he is alone on the plane and is alone during baggage claim and is alone waiting for one of the Trojans to pick him up almost derails him.

But then a jeep pulls up to the curb and stops right in front of him, and Jeremy Knox climbs out of the driver’s seat and bounds over to Jean’s side.

“Jean, hi! It’s great to see you! Come on, let’s get that luggage into the back and then we’ll head to USC.” Jeremy lifts Jean’s (only) suitcase into the back before Jean can get a word in. It’s simultaneously annoying and comforting, and as Jean settles into the passenger seat, he takes a deep breath for the first time since leaving Palmetto.


A year and a half after that first day, Jean knows for a fact that Jeremy Knox is his Jeremy, but that doesn’t mean he has done anything about it. He still can’t really believe that this boy who has such a positive outlook on life could be Jean’s soulmate. Jean, who for most of his life has only known pain and has embraced the fact that nothing was going to get better for him.

In a way, things have gotten better though. He’s not going to ever be right for the Trojans, he’s got too much shit to work through to ever have such a positive outlook on life, but they are good for him. They show him unconditional kindness and help him work through his outbursts, and he doesn’t deserve them but doesn’t want to let go either.

He knows Jeremy is his soulmate even though Jeremy has never shown him his soul mark, and Jean has never shown his. But the way they look at one another, the way Jeremy can startle a laugh out of Jean, and the way Jean feels most comfortable when they’re spending time together, they both know.

Jean also knows he doesn’t deserve Jeremy.

One Saturday, when they’re both lounging on the couch with blankets over their laps and feet tangled together, Jeremy takes a deep breath and takes the plunge.

“Jean, are we going to ever talk about it?”

Jean instantly knows what he means, but allows himself to collect his thoughts before replying. “What specifically do you want to talk about?” It’s a fair question, because there are so many elements to this whole thing, and Jean sure doesn’t know where to start.

Jeremy seems to have an idea though, because he moves to take off the bracelet he wears around his wrist that conceals his soulmate’s name. When he turns it so Jean can look, he sees his own name in his own neat and slanted handwriting, and Jean’s heart skips a beat. He slowly takes off his own bracelet and mirror’s Jeremy’s movements, watching his face light up as he reads his own name on Jean’s skin.

“I know that being here hasn’t been easy for you,” Jeremy said once he had looked his fill, eyes moving back up to Jean’s face. “I knew it was you almost as soon as you got here, but I also knew you needed time. With everything that happened at Evermore, and then the sudden change, it would have been wrong of me to ask so much of you.” Jeremy pauses, and Jean takes the silence as an invitation to speak.

“I suspected, but I wasn’t exactly applauded by Riko for having your name on my wrist, and so this wasn’t something I could even think about for the first year or so here. I, um. I thought that there was no way in hell I could fall in love with someone like you. I was this broken thing, and you deserved more than that.”

Jeremy frowns, scooting forward on the couch so he’s kneeling right in front of Jean. “You idiot. You’re not unworthy of someone’s love because you’ve been through hell. If anything, that just makes you stronger.”

And Jeremy didn’t know, couldn’t know the enormity of torture that Jean had been through, but even so, Jean tried to let himself believe him.

“Thank you for giving me time,” Jean muttered, gathering all his courage to reach out for Jeremy’s hand.

The motion put a smile on Jeremy’s face so bright it rivaled the harsh California sun. “Of course. I’ll give you all the time in the world, whatever you need.”

“Well,” Jean countered, and for once in his life embraced the flutters in his chest. “I think enough time has passed for me to do this,” and he leaned forward just enough to kiss Jeremy. Jeremy sighed happily, both of his hands reaching up to cup Jean’s cheeks and holding him close, not even considering letting go any time soon.

1. A cute reference to my favourite otp
2. A really worryingly accurate description of me 24/7 since berena became my entire life a whole year ago 💀🙃

The Diary of a Teenage Senator

Being a regular teen girl is hard, but being a teen girl who’s also the senator of Texas?

Hi. I’m Ted Cruz, and this is my story.

Congress is the absolute worst! The speaker absolutely has it out for me. At least I have my best friends, Jeb Bush and John Kasich, with me. I don’t know what I would do without them.

There’s this one boy in Congress who is just sooooo dreamy. His name is Marco Rubio. *sigh* he’s so perfect, but he’s way out of my league. Sometimes, I doodle “Mr. Ted Rubio” in my notebook. I would just about die if anybody found out I did that.

This week, we’re having the presidential election. I’m running for the republican nominee, but guess who else is running? Marco! I hope this means I get to spend a lot of time with him. The new kid is running, too. His name is Donald, and he is so mean to me! He calls me Lyin’ Ted and says that my dad killed JFK. As if! Ugh, being a teenager is so hard.

XOXO,

Ted Cruz

Honestly now that I’m rereading it, 99.999% of people’s reasons of “why Marx is wrong” are directly resolved in the first chapter of the first volume of Das Kapital.

“but what if I put in a lot of labor into something nobody wants to buy?” this he talks about before even the second section of the chapter

“marx thought that lazy people who work slowly make more valuable commodities because there’s more labor” literally by page 5 he talks about why that’s wrong

“he thought that the conditions that poor people live in will become objectively worse as the rich get richer” do u know what “relatively” means

My only (shocking!) conclusion I can draw, is that barely anybody who’s criticized Marx for his critique of political economy has in fact never read a word of Marx’s critique of political economy (or at least nothing outside of very selective quotes ripped from their context)

i just find it funny, and by funny i mean i want to set my head on fire, how every woman who knows john and sherlock for more than five (5) minutes seems to figure out exactly what kind of men they are and know them better than anybody, yet they, for some reason, can’t understand themselves and each other for y e a r s

“What’s the point? I mean, I sure as shit don’t know. Neither does anybody else, okay? We’re all just winging it, you know? The good news is you’re feeling stuff. And you’ve got to hold on to that.”

Boyhood (2014) dir. Richard Linklater

I am not a people’s person
I live on my own accord
I don’t really care about anybody else most of the time
But I get hurt when they don’t care about me
Half the time I don’t even realise that I hurt someone
And many times I do it on purpose
Expecting them to be okay with it
I expect them to come back to me
To be with me the way they have always been
Even after hurting them
I know it is selfish and I know I am selfish
But that is how I have always been
There is no changing me

Heat HC

Okay. I mean, you all know the HCs where Sportacus goes into heat, as an elvish thing, right?!
But what if…Robbie actually is a fairy and…

- ROBBIE is the one going into heat?!

- he sometimes locks himself away in his lair for days/weeks because he doesn’t want anybody to see him like this?!

- Sportacus getting concerned that he hasn’t seen him for so long and visits him. When he won’t answer his calls, he simply ‘breaks in’ because he’s seriously scared that something bad happened to Robbie?!

- he then finds him in his orange chair in a rather…distressful state…(and after realizing what is going on, offers to…help - he’s Sportacus after all, right)?!

(I leave the rest for your imagination…)

I think there’s still room for a lot-I mean he’s grieved a lot of people who have died in his life, and I think that is what makes it hard for him to get close to anybody who’s clock is ticking. And Ragnor was a great friend of his and I think you’ll definitely see people from his past that he does grieve or he doesn’t quite know how to make the situation easier.[..] he eventually has to deal with it, he can’t be passive about it.

Rebecca Bunch vs. Internalized Misogyny, Heteronormativity, and Fear of Rejection: An Essay by Someone in Way Too Deep

“I can’t find anybody to love me. Like, real love. Like, boy-girl love. I mean, that’s okay, that’s gender-normative. But you get what I’m saying, right?” Rebecca laments to her dream-ghost in “Josh has No Idea Where I Am!”. Rebecca understands heteronormativity in theory but she can’t apply it to her own life. She views “boy-girl love” and romantic love as one-in-the-same because she’s been taught that heterosexual love is the holy grail of fulfillment. Pre-series her relationships with women were always defined by competition and anxiety and so, Rebecca sticks to the heterosexual mold, unable to understand her latent attraction to women.

Fake FRIENDS.

I need to share something with you all.
I’m sorry it’s gonna be a bit long, but please , take some time to read it .
I just wanted to advise you.
Never trust anybody. Like , really.
Trust them if you want, but never completely.
You never know someone’s true intentions, and that is so scary.
Don’t ever believe what they say before seeing if their actions match with what they’re saying.
Please, don’t get attached too fast, don’t open up to people too fast.
You really never know what could happen.
Take your time to know the people you are meeting.
Don’t think that if they’re nice with you, it means that they like you.
People always will get bored.
Keep looking for that one friend , that true friend that will stay forever.
That friend won’t be perfect.
But will be perfect in your eyes.
Choose someone that will be ready to sacrifice time and anything possible to make YOU feel better.
Choose someone who will not make you walk alone, but who will walk with you on the same road.
Oh, yeah, you’ve been disappointed so many times by temporary friends, by people you thought considered you as special.
You can’t imagine how fast they can replace you.
So take your time, and choose wisely.
I don’t mean don’t talk to anybody…but
Don’t consider everyone nice as a friend.


Find someone , who will make you their world.

Anybody up for a ride???......

Happy December! Finally got the house decorated, attended 2 parties this weekend, and started dipping into the eggnog. Just got home and saw some pretty funny stuff regarding “riding”.

So, it could be referring to JAMMF, and his upcoming wheel of women in the series. After all, they have been filming his years, so he could be doing some “character ” riding!

Or, based on the cartoon that our dear Metin published, he could be “riding” that deflated old radio flyer with no “schwing”…if you know what I mean??? However you interpret, that picture is funny as hell.

And, I also saw that some people interpreted as riding my little pony. Uhhh, that would be a resounding no. If the face at the Bafta’s was an indicator, then it looked to me like mini Donas preferred to remain in the man cave! And, it looked like that horse was happier at the kale trough and tied up next to a sign!

The day I see a public boinker like we saw on the red carpet, or at the Saks event, then I will say the horse has left the barn! Must be a thoroughbred filly thing that caused that!😉

Until then…..giddy up! Happy Sunday sweet shipsters!😍😙

I miss Sam

Does anybody else really miss Sam plot lines? I mean, I know there’s been Winchester plot lines and little Sam ones here and there, like the trials. But I’m talking full season, Sammy-specific, oh-shit-Sam’s-the-one plots. Like being Lucifer’s vessel in S5 or the demon blood in S4 or the psychic stuff in S2.

Not that I don’t love Dean and Cas, they’re my favs, but I miss Sam. S11&12 were/are, primarily TFW (plus some Cas, what with the Casifer thing and all). S9&10 was oriented around Dean and the Mark. S8 focused on Cas and Cas and Dean.

I miss some good ol’ Sam being soulless or Sam being haunted by Lucifer. Ya know, SOMETHING. Because now, it’s playing off like Sam’s the one that’s got his shit together. Which is great for my baby angel, but he doesn’t feel like much of a main character anymore, like his role has been down-played. And that makes me sad.

Any thoughts?
