if it's not someone correct me please

terfs do not target trans men. yes, trans men are often misgendered by terfs, but Trans Exclusionary Radical Feminists have a very specific agenda which aims to take away the rights of trans women. terfs dehumanize trans women, terfs want trans women dead, terfs enact violence on trans women, terfs have the blood of trans women on their hands. terfs are not fighting to take away the rights of trans men specifically 

you cannot compare the experiences of trans men with terfs to the experiences of trans women. the misgendering trans men face from terfs does not stem from terf politics but from transphobia, which are different! terfs are inherently transphobic yes, but not all transphobes are terfs. you cannot use them interchangeably 

so yes, trans men are absolutely targeted by transphobes! and terfs are transphobes. but to say a trans man is targeted by a terf specifically is incorrect and waters down the true meaning of Trans Exclusionary Radical Feminist to just be another word for transphobe 

so we all know how teru stands in his well know “pigeon toed” stance  

(credit to wiki)

tbh i just always thought it was cute and just like his thing??

however before i started crying about caesar i noticed caesar from jojos bizarre adventure fought the same way!!

knees bent and shit you know. 

now looking further into it i found out this was an actual stance in martial arts!! from what ive learned its called the sanchin dachi stance! apparently its to help the fighter stay grounded 

some examples

(this captures it pretty well lmao..)

now i dont know shit about martial arts so please correct me if im wrong but i thought it was cool to know why teru had a reason to fight like that and not just be dorky.



OKAY, so here’s my first new post and with this I’m officially back and off hiatus!

I’ve been working on this AU since mid June, and it started out casual but turned into something a bit more. At 33 pages in the main comic, it’s the largest single thing I’ve drawn yet. I’m not gonna say it’s a masterpiece, but I worked really hard on it and it was a learning experience!

ABOUT THE COMIC: As stated above, I was first inspired to do an AU because the Asian Commander who gets stepped on and killed (yes, lovely) is actually named Katashi Hamada, and Hamada really isn’t that common a last name. While he doesn’t play a huge role in my comic, Katashi gave me a convenient opening to put the Hamada bros in the JW Universe.

The comic features the bros interacting a lot, but is not shippy in any way, or even fluffy really. Hiro is…well, interesting, and Tadashi has a few tricks up his sleeve too. They both have some quirks in this AU, but I’m not going to say anything because I want you guys to see if you can figure out where the clues are going yourselves :D The Mitchell bros, Dr. Henry Wu, and Owen Grady will also be making appearances. You will need to be familiar with both films in order to understand what’s going on (and luckily JW just came out on DVD in the US! How convenient!). Also has references to past Jurassic Park films.

Questions about what’s going on in the AU will not be answered until the last part has been posted! If you figure it out, keep it to yourself so others can guess ;D

This AU will be posted in 6 parts. The first part will be posted at the above time. But just in case, you can also find the posts through this post. Links will be added beneath the cut as they update. The following chapter’s release date will be announced with its preceding post.

Happy reading! :D

So im not a vet sb or anything but ive been reading blogs and looking into the bowl for a few years off and on. Most recently ive decided to actually give it a shot but i did extensive research and read countless stories both bad and good from all sex workers. From what i gather there are a few BASIC things everyone looking into this business need to know and understand. Correct me if im wrong and you are reading this please.

1: NEVER get into a car or go anywhere with a guy you are meeting for the first time or two. Take a cab, uber, train, bus and have him pay for it if its more then $15.(Thats just my preference do what you want sis)

2: Carry a form of protection i dont give a hell if its a fork bitch carry something to protect yourself hide it under your wig if you have to.

3: Tell someone you trust family, friend, tumblr sisters, leave a detailed note at home about who you are  meeting, where, what time, and his information. If something were to happen to you the police/family will know where to start. Delete/trash it when you get home of course.

4: ALWAYS get your money before any sexual acts. For some its before they even have dinner on the first date/meeting. Its really up to you and what you prefer.

5: NEVER spend your own money with hopes of being reimbursed. The reason you got into this line of work was so that you didnt have to spend your own money sis, use your head.

6: Trust your gut, i dont care if his ass is worth a trillion dollars nothings more important then your safety. These men dont give a fuck about you at the end of the day everyones out for self in this game so be about your money first and all that other bs later.

goddess-of-change  asked:

This is one of the only Papyton blogs I can tolerate. One that goes beyond wild sex and creates a chemistry between the two. But I was wondering, what about Mad Dummy? I always saw their human form as a punk girl, so... what do you think?

1.) Thanks for tolerating my blog :D

2.) Someone please correct me if I’m wrong, but I don’t think Mad Dummy’s gender was specified in the game (?) Until then I made them agender. Also:

I’m sure at least two of ya’ll are thinking, But Random, they’re acting so calmly, what dafuq?” Yeah no, that’s only them in a good mood. I promise 9/10 times its usually like:

The Blook family really care about each other…



WONDER WOMAN WAS SO GOOD. SO GOOD. (a lil cliche at the end, admittedly, but SO. GOOD.) ok lemme just

  • The little things. In the flashback to Ares corrupting man or whatever, it wasn’t just men fighting, it was also women. 
  • when diana landed at the very end and her thighs jiggled like a real fucking person i damn near started crying im. wow
  • THERE WERE SO MANY DIVERSE WOMEN ON THEMISCRYA! All sizes, colors, builds, it was so nice so so so nice
  • those entire scenes when steve gets out of the bath and also on the boat
    • uh side note “she came to the conclusion that men were necessary for procreation, but not for pleasure”
    • “I’m a bit…above average”
  • “where i come from, we call that slavery” “i like her” in short etta candy is?? a blessing?? i wish she could have had a bigger role than just pointing a sword at that one guy trailing them. obviously that was incredible but i wanted etta fucking up some shit
  • that plot twist with ares was pretty good, although i was half laughing bc the actor who played him was remus lupin and why would the god of war be a skinny white dude with a curly mustache i just. i cant
  • this may seem like a really small deal for anyone else but in the train scene when they’re at the station and other scenes as well there were Indian soldiers and a lot of people forget thousands of Indians were drafted and forced to fight as they were under british imperial rule at the time and you know what? when you’re so overlooked all of the fucking time? Even saying two or three faces in the crowd is fucking amazing? Because someone remembered  you existed?
  • out of that team of 5 2 were POC and hey. its not perfect but. its definitely. good™
  • Chief was portrayed so well?? no Native American stereotypes that I could catch (then again, I’m not familiar with any and wasn’t actively looking out for them, please correct me if I’m wrong) but he actually USED his knowledge and culture?? so good??? Also at least one sentence about how white men ruined Native Americans to a horrific extent. I would’ve preferred a conversation, but def better than nothing
  • I love how they addressed the “how come she speaks english”, because it wasn’t just some offhand “I speak thousands of languages, no biggie”, but it was pretty damn vital to the plot
  • It got really in touch with humanity as a whole and I fucking loved it. I think it’s also hella fitting for the current political climate - the whole “yes, they’re the bad guys, but it’s also partially my fault” - I can’t really phrase it, it was just - nice.
  • Honestly? I REALLY liked how they used WWI instead of II. WWII is a little overdone in the superhero genre, and WWI was the biggest war the world had ever faced. It was the Great War up until the 1940s. It was an enormous humanitarian crisis (not that WWII wasn’t ofc) but its really not talked about in the movies. I think this is really the first time the world as a whole saw such international, dangerous war, and it was perfect for the reasoning and the timeline. if it had been WWII, the world would already be war-weary. This way, it’s fresh for man AND Diana.
  • thank GOODNESS dc has upped their game and didn’t make the part where she was in no-man’s zone the climax and just drag it on from there (because that’s what they did with suicide squad and it was absolutely terrible). They actually had a mini climax then a rest and a buildup before the biG climax which made my plot chart loving heart happy. 
  • steve is a pure man who tried his best not to objectify diana and told off others who did as well and its not like diana was taking aNY of that shit and the ways he complemented her weren’t creepy or gross they were nice and genuine
  • if i recall correctly, charlie really didn’t show off his sharpshooting skills that much. he had problems. he wasn’t the greatest at what he did. But then diana was like “then who would sing for us?” and i just. even if ur not great at something. even if youre plagued by nightmares and ghosts and haunting wars. you’re still wanted. you’re still valued. sorry it was SO nice
  • “A BABY!!”
  • wonder woman saved both all of dc and my soul for superhero movies
Her womb smelled like it was burnt.

(Translation of the message with Ayato, Touka, and Yomo. Please feel free to send me a message for any corrections!)

The children who were meant to be born, died. The vision of the future convulses.

Someone declared that they’ll crush only half of the broad bean.
The gene is in a severe bipolar state.
The nucleic acid sequence having no recollection of its own actions.

All of the fingers that were supposed to be connected from start to end, are scattered around; it’s annoying.

If you look closely at the knot, you can see that it can be surprisingly easy to untie.

I was always asked to keep the switch.
Go forward.
Go back.

I can hear my voice from the mouth.
That voice gave me a feeling of discomfort and it had become extremely disgusting but, no one noticed that and everyone was under the impression that it was indeed, my voice.

Sin is irresponsible. I’m getting tired of being forgiven.
My shoulders have even forgotten about my legs.

I open the door with the side of my arm.

The path that I should’ve advanced in is gone and darkness pulled onto the horizon that lay right beneath it.

“Come on, come on! Come on, come on!”

Go forward.
Go back.

I can hear my voice from the bones.

“Did you know that our voice is the mixed voices from dad and mom? No wonder it’s so disgusting.”

I pinched my nose and jumped down without a pause. Just like how a child would when jumping into a pool.

Even the never-stopping rain,
even the never-breaking night,
even the never-ending agony.

It’s surely there, it’s just that it wasn’t there until now.

Falling down, falling down.
It’s as if right has become left.

And on the brink of collision, I recall Björk’s song,

anonymous asked:

I'm planning on getting a tarantula and I've researched for hours and hours on end and I know how to keep one healthy, but one thing I haven't been able to find is advice on what to do if they actually DO get sick or injured. I have a feeling you can't just take a tarantula to the vet. What do you do if your tarantula gets sick or hurt?

There’s not too much that can be done about ‘sick’ tarantulas unfortunately, and vets usually know nothing about inverts. I’m not a veterinarian or anything, but I’ll try my best to give some advice.


Most of the time, mites can be easily prevented. They thrive in moist conditions with high humidity, so if you have a tarantula that’s native to more arid regions you may not have an issue.

Routine spot cleaning always helps – the cleaner the environment, the less appealing it will be to parasites. Removing uneaten food/boluses, scooping out waste, etc.

If you do see mites in the enclosure, take the tarantula out immediately and clean the whole tank. DO NOT USE CHEMICALS, as they might cause illness to the spider when you put it back. Pest control that kills mites also kills spiders. Replace the substrate, and put any decor in the freezer for a few hours to kill any mites that may be living on it.


Arguably the most common ailment tarantulas suffer from, dehydration is also one of the easiest to cure. Just remember to keep a shallow water bowl in the tank with them. Make sure it’s not wider than the T’s legspan and not deep enough to submerge it. Make sure it’s filled every day with clean filtered or bottled water.

If your tarantula is lethargic and withered-looking, maybe even with a shrunken or withered abdomen, it may be dehydrated.

Mold & Fungus:

Growths may occur if the enclosure is too moist. This happens mostly with tarantulas that are from more humid environments. Some molds can cause infection in a tarantula that can prove fatal.

Prevention includes making sure the environment is well-ventilated, not overly-wet, and clean. Mold and such like to grow on organic material such as food boluses, so make sure to get rid of any uneaten food.

There are ways to treat fuzzies on the surface of he tarantula’s exoskeleton, usually by gently wiping it away with a soft paintbrush, rinsing in water between each stroke. Internal infections usually cannot be cured, to my knowledge at least. (If someone can correct me, feel free, please!)


So this part scares me. Sometimes after a fall or during the soft stage following a molt, a tarantula my develop a rupture in their exoskeleton. Usually with limbs, it isn’t too big of a deal as they are able to detach their legs with little consequence (save perhaps complications during the next molt as it tried to grow back lost limbs). It’s best to leave leg injuries alone.

A rupture on the abdomen, however, does often prove fatal. If your tarantula has a break in its abdomen, put it in a tarantula ICU (a smaller, well-ventilated container with paper towel lining the bottom of it). Then gently, with a cotton swab, apply petroleum jelly to the wound. Tarantula “blood,” called Hemolymph, doesn’t clot as well as human blood does. Sealing it with petroleum jelly helps it to clot properly. When your T molts next, there should be no sign of pervious injury.

Of course ways to prevent this are to prevent falls (not having tall decor), making falls less dangerous (higher substrate, decor that isn’t too hard like rocks and ceramics), and not using mesh-top enclosures (their little claws could get stuck, causing broken legs).

Hope this helps, and if anyone has more info to add or corrections please feel free!


evangelionunitkenway  asked:

Okay, this is weird, and can you make this public, please? Are you telling me this. Mages become Tranquil and it is when you lose your powers or something/ Or its when a mage dies in the fade, and they become like... well zombies? (correct me if I'm wrong). Cassandra is a seeker, which from what I understand was someone who was made tranquil and it was reversed, which gives them other abilities. So basically Cassandra is an ex-mage? Am I understanding this right?

“If I felt pain, it is meaningless to me now. Once I knew only fear, but now I know only service. Whatever pain there was, I believe it an acceptable trade.”

Tranquil aren’t really “zombies”- they don’t want to hurt anyone and have self-preservation and a desire to be “useful”. When mages become Tranquil, they lose access to the Fade, leaving them emotionless. They retain awareness of their past selves and the world around them, but they cannot feel anything about either. The Tranquil process everything logically and still have preferences.

If a mage dies in the Fade (like Feynriel can in DA2), he wakes up Tranquil. If that’s how the Rite of Tranquility works, it hasn’t been officially confirmed as yet; we haven’t seen a defined description of that process anywhere.

Cassandra has abilities, but they are different than a mage’s- she never had an innate ability to cast magic in the first place.  Her abilities are more in-line with a Templar’s, but she doesn’t need lyrium.  Bioware hasn’t really elaborated on this point, but Cassandra is proof that non-mages can be made Tranquil as well.  It seems to be that if a non-mage uses lyrium or is briefly made Tranquil in the manner Cassandra was (the Seeker’s Vigil), they gain some magical abilities, but are not classified as mages. This distinction is likely due to the fact that Templars and Seekers did not naturally manifest their powers like mages.

Neither of us has read Asunder (despite the quote at the top of this post - thank you, Dragon Age wiki), so maybe someone who has can say more about the mage whose Tranquility was reversed.  They had some issues re-adjusting to their non-Tranquil state, which Cassandra mentions to Solas in a banter that unlocks after completing her personal quest.

  • Cassandra: Solas, I assume you know it’s possible to reverse the Rite of Tranquility.
  • Solas: I did hear of what you learned, yes.
  • Cassandra: I know of only one mage thus cured, and… he had no control of his emotions. He was distraught.
  • Cassandra: Do you think that would have passed? If the Tranquil are cured only to end up thus…
  • Solas: They would be a danger to themselves and others, yes.
  • Solas: It is difficult to say. In your Vigil, you were Tranquil for but a moment. They have suffered much longer.
  • Solas: Such control is like a muscle, atrophying without use. Given time it might be restored, but until then…
  • Cassandra: That may be a risk we are obligated to undertake.
  • Solas: They will be grateful… even the ones who do not survive.

It’s hard to say whether the mages who were willingly made Tranquil would agree. Tranquil are less desirable targets for demonic possession, though they are not immune. But the Tranquil who were unwilling? They’re a different story.

where has this fandom gone?

Guys what the hell. Jack if you read this. Please allow me to show the direct proof of this community decreasing in safety at an alarming rate.

- Hateful comments
Last night you did a spree of Q&A on tumblr and i have seen some people get real nasty on commenting on those asks. Some even to the point where a girl started getting suicidal feelings. Same for the anti theories. People still give eachother hate for it

- Art theft
I have seen blogs in this fandom specifically made to repost things. But also unaware people who dont know what they are doing or dont know what fair use is.

-Caption editing
I know there are people who do it good but its super frustrating to see someone change your correct video captions to bullshit within 5 minutes. A while ago on a livestream you said to be willing to look for a middle ground on this and not to burden people with the task. Please allow me to introduce myself as freelance captioner. It is literally my job to make captions for videos and with premiere pro i can fix this problem

We are better than this people.
Boost it.

Q+A For ConcertTeamup

Hello everyone! I hope some of this clear things up. I understand some are a little confused on how this all works! Remember I am always here if you have any questions or concerns, please send them through messages or on ask! Lots of to you all! x

Q:   “Is this legit?”

A: Yes, I want this all to be as safe as possible for fans. We don’t scam and we don’t lie.

Q: “I’m selling a ticket, how do I do this?”

A: You have already done what you need to do! All I need to know is that you have one (or more) available for purchase! I will then find you someone to match with, as soon as possible. 

Q: “How do I send a request or submission for a ticket/s?”

A: Simple! Send them through ask or messaging! Both are available and open. Submitting makes it a little difficult to answer you directly though.

Q: “What should I send for the request for tickets?”

A: Just tell me what show you are wanting to attend to, and how many tickets you need, also if you need a specific ticket. It is nice to know your age, your name also how much you are offering but that is totally optional for you to tell me.

Q: “How do I get ‘Matched’” 

A: Simple, pretty much once I find a ticket, and if you are chosen. I tell you who you have been matched with. I will also then tell you that you should contact each other for how you want it all to be arranged. I don’t want to intrude on your details so I leave the communication aspect to be completely up to you two.

Q: “I have been matched and am talking to the seller/buyer and we need help”

A: I am always here to help you guys in any way that I can.

Q: “I have been matched but i’m getting a strange vibe”

A: I’m very sorry to hear that. We want this to be as safe and easy as possible. If you for some reason feel that there is something shady coming from your seller/buyer, please let us know immediately. I will ask you to share what you think might be happening. I will then talk to the two of you to sort it out. It will then be asked to the seller for proof by photo and/or video of the ticket/s. If you still feel that there may be more going on, I will gladly find you someone else that you feel safer with. Although, there is a very slight chance that you will be scammed, as I talk to all of you before you are matched and make sure that you have good intentions. 

Q: “I already have tickets, I just don’t want to go alone”

A: That is totally understandable, and congrats on getting tickets! I will try and find someone to match you with as soon as possible so you have someone to attend the show with. 

Q: “How do I pay once I have been matched?”

A: I leave this up to the two of you to decide as people have different requirements. Although I know you can send the payment through Ticketmaster, Paypal, Bank Transfers, etc. But again the decision is totally up to and what works best for you and your seller/buyer. Im always here if you need any assistance. 

Q: “How do I send the tickets to the buyer?”

A: As of right at this moment, nobody has their physical tickets as its only been about 36 hours since tickets sold out. But in the future you are able to connect with each other on Ticketmaster to transfer tickets, without any costs and also safely. You can also mail tickets as an option, but we all know that shipping physical items may get lost in delivery. Again this is totally up to the buyer/seller, which ever method works best for the two of you is important. Im always here for help.

Q: “I have been matched, and have successfully gotten my tickets, but I no longer need them”

A: Thats totally fine! I will find someone for you to match with! You now take on the role as a seller. 

Q: “I have been matched to a seller, but I don’t need the ticket/s anymore”

A: Sorry to hear that! We will then find someone else for the ticket/s”

Q: “Will you let us know if you have any available?”

A: Yes of course! As soon as I have some available, you will all be notified. I recommend turning our posts notifications on. You can do this by going on my home page and selecting the person shaped icon in the right corner, once selected there should be a “Get Notifications” button. Click that. There will then be a lightning bolt next to the icon to confirm. I am always here for help if you are confused. 

A: “Can I be added to the ___ list”

Q: Yes, although there is no waiting list. Once I let you guys know that there is a ticket available, I will also tell you a specific word (Example: “Green”, “Pink”, “Sweet Creature”) Send me the word that I ask for that is linked to that ticket, and you will be added to a list that will help me randomly draw one of you for the ticket. I want it to be as fair as possible. If you guys prefer a waiting list, please let me know. I want all of you to get a chance. 

Q: “How do I get chosen for tickets, is there something I can do”

A: Demand for tickets is very high at the moment. Send me a request, and also keep on the look out for my posts. I don’t choose for who I think deserves it more, I think you all deserve a chance and a ticket. I don’t single people out if they believe in specific ‘ships’ or if they just created a blog that day. We all support the same person/people and I think thats very important, so no at this moment there is no special way to get a ticket. In the future there may be a list, but no I want this to be as fair as possible. If you disagree or have another opinion, please let me know again I want what works best for all of you! 

Q: “I didn’t get any tickets the last time you had some available”

A: Don’t give up, there will be more to come. It’s only been two days and I have already been able to match people. Just keep your eyes peeled on my account. 

Q: “How much time do people have to be entered on to the list for the  ______ show?”

A: After I notify you all that I have a ticket available. Im giving you all 12 hours to send me the specific word. Please keep in mind that may change depending on if the seller will allow this much time. 

Q: “You didn’t reply, was I not on the list?”

A: If you sent me the word in the correct time, you would have been on the list. If I don’t answer its because I have quite a few messages, but don’t worry nobody is going unnoticed. I see all. 

Q: “Do you have the ticket physically”

A: No, I dont. A direct you to someone who does and is safe/reliable. 
Think of me as a manager. 

Q: “If you manage to get tickets, will the name change to yours?”

A: No, I don’t think the name will change. As far as I’m aware the person who first bought the ticket will have their name on it. 

Q: “Where exactly are you getting the tickets from”

A: Either someone has come to me saying they have some for sale, or I look for them myself through other platforms. 

Q: “For example, if I was able to get a ticket to the Sydney show with your help, will there be a problem when I show them the ticket at the venue…? Because I heard several people saying that they may not let you in if it doesn’t have your name on it or something like that?”

A: From what I’ve heard is that its different for every place. Some people will only be allowed access if the person who originally bought the tickets is there with ID for proof. This is where we get the name ‘concertTeamUp’. So if someone is selling a ticket the buyer can tag along with the person who has their name on the ticket. This way you will be “Teaming Up” and going to the show together. Although some places also don’t need for the person who originally bought the ticket with their name on it to be there. I would suggest calling and/or emailing the venue that you are planning to go to. We would hate for someone to get a ticket but not be allowed access. Let us know if you do contact the venues, we can then make a post about the guidelines for each place, if you guys wish. 

Q: “If I am matched but I don’t respond right away, will it be given away to someone else?” 

A: No. I will wait for your response. If you don’t need the ticket anymore I will give it to someone else though. 

Q: I sent a message but Im not sure you got it, you didn’t reply.”

A: Most cases I have seen it, I just haven’t had the chance to reply. I will get back to you as soon as I can. Again, I didn’t realize my blog would be noticed as much as it is. So don’t panic, I do see all.

Q: “I’m still confused”

A: Thats totally okay! Message me and I will try my best to help you understand! 

Q: “Are you selling two tickets at a time to one person?”

A: I understand people need more than one ticket, so I will try my best for you. If I have two available and you are chosen, you may be in luck.

Q: “Will you tell us details about the ticket?”

A: Normally I will tell you the amount of tickets, the place and the price. Its up to the seller on how much information is to be posted. 

Q: “Are trades available?”

A: Yes! Absolutely!

Q: “I don’t have very many places to share your blog.”

A: That is totally fine! You are not obligated to share my blog. This also does not effect your chances of being chosen for a ticket. 

Q: “Where should I share your blog?”

A: It’s completely up to you! Twitter is a good way, but honestly any form of sharing is good and very appreciated! Please don’t feel pressured though.

Q: “Are there groups of people that I can tag along with?”

A: Yes! I can find you a match! Also feel free to try and start one! Let me know if you do! 

Q: “I know people looking for and buying tickets, should I tell them about you!”

A: Its up to you! It will definitely help though!

Q: “What cities have you sold to?”

A: I may be wrong but from what I remember its been, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Singapore, and New York. 

Q: ”Are you only selling tickets to certain cities?”

A: Whatever tickets for whatever shows find there way over here they will be posted. Im selling for all shows. 

Q: “If you have already sold a ticket for a show, will that be the only one?”

A: No, when more come they will be posted no matter how many times its been sold before on here.

Again I am trying my absolute best for all of you! I want this to be a place where we can connect to one another as fans. Thank you for submitting and also for paying attention. It truly does mean a lot, fingers crossed that I get you your ticket/s!

I hope this clears up some things! Again, please know Im always available for anything. These were the most asked questions, so If more come at a high rate I could make a Part 2. Also I apologize for the length of this post, I hope it helps though! x

Much love to you all, x


anonymous asked:

Can you do an alpha!doomfist x omega!reader, where he gets out of prison and finds her and she can't believe he's finally back with her and it's just very fluffy with a lot of holding please?

((I may have absolutely butchered some of the terms of endearment. I searched for Yoruba terms of endearment and came up with these. If this is incorrect or if the usage is wrong, please reach out to me, always ready to correct any errors I make!))

There was someone in the room with you.

You mentally cursed as you became acutely aware of the presence of another within the room, the muted scent of Alpha barely tickling your nose. It should not have been easy to get into your home. There were supposed to be safeguards in place; a security system installed by one of Talon’s finest security firms, the dog Akande had gifted your mere months before he had been imprisoned. The house itself was away from the bustling city of Numbani, existing close enough to the city for the residence to be registered there but far enough away that you had a kilometer of land in all directions.

It was implied that you were no longer welcomed within the confines of the city and you had almost prefered it that way. While no crimes had been pinned onto you, you were the mate to an international ‘criminal’. You had been Akande Ogundimu’s mate long before he had become Doomfist, before he had lost his arm and before his ‘fall from the world’s grace’. While it had once gained you the envy of any that laid eyes on the multi-talented business man, it had now earned you the ire of those that resented his tactics for the betterment of humankind. While some were fine with words, others thought they should hit him where they know it could truly hurt especially when they knew he could do nothing about it. You, however, were not the helpless omega they often believed you to be. They thought you a wilting flower, a ‘typical’ submissive, domestic Omega who attracted Akande to you with your meek nature. And this was the image you preferred to uphold. But one did not become the mate of one of the greatest tacticians and martial artists without learning some of his ways.

You shifted as slightly as you could, your hand inching upwards cautiously, fingers wrapping tight around the thin telescopic baton beneath your pillow. You kept your breathing even, steady, listening as the near silent footsteps made their way closer and closer to you. With a hard snap of the wrist you extended the baton to its full length before twisting in your bed, letting out a low grunt as you arced the weapon towards the intruder. They caught your wrist effortlessly, their grip snug but not painful, a low threatening growl leaving your throat as you tried to yank away.

“Ìfẹ́-ọkàn mi… is this any way to welcome me home?”

It felt as if your heart stopped and drummed all at once, your eyes going round as the sound of that voice–his voice–poured over you. Slowly your gaze drifted upwards until your eyes locked with warm brown eyes. For the first time in years, it felt as if you could truly breathe, your hands releasing the baton as you clumsily surged forward. Akande’s rich laugh poured over you as he smoothly pulled you up into his arms, a choked sob wresting its way from your lips as your arms tightened about his neck. Your hands shook as they danced over him; his face, his shoulders, grazing against his mark in unbelieving astonishment.

Pressing your face into his shoulder you took a deep breath and practically whimpered. His scent was contained and dampened, but beneath the layers of obvious suppressants, it was there; smelling of ube fruit and anise, rippling undertones of rich earth and ozone. You had wanted this for so long, it felt as if you were still in a dream, the only thing tethering you to the fact that it was reality was the solid feel of him beneath your touch. You could hear, could feel the low rumble of contentment that vibrated through his chest, your hands tightening around the edge of his tank top before your eyes lifted back up to his.

“Olùfẹ́ mi”, you stated breathlessly, tears rolling down your face as a wide grin creased your lips. “Welcome home…what took you so long?”

A shiver rolled down your spine as you watched a smile crease his face before a bark of a laugh left his lips as he stood with you and did a small spin. You laughed for the first time in ages, your legs kicking back, his hold about your waist tightening as he leaned forward and pressed his forehead to yours.

“You know oyin mi I do not move until the time is right”, he stated matter-of-factly before dipping his head down and pressing a long kiss against you mark. “I have missed you, my joy.”

You purred, nails gently scratching at his shoulder as he nuzzled, unable to mark you yet but allowing your scent to mark him. You whined when he pulled back before sighing as he pressed a hard kiss to your lips. You melted under his show of affection, your body going lax against his. Life had been breathed into you, warmth coursing through you as your weakened connection re-established itself, settling the discourse that had wracked you all the years he had been away. Reluctantly, you pulled away from one another when oxygen demanded it, Akande warily lowering you down to the ground. Your brow pinched together in confusion, wanting to disregard the obvious notion that he couldn’t stay, wanting to steal several more moments with the man, your Alpha. But the risk was too high and you would never forgive yourself if you were the reason why he ended up back in jail.

Akande gently cupped your face, your hand instantly lifting up and holding it there as you twisted your face to press hard kisses into his palm. Your eyes were wet again, an arc of sadness tinging the reunion, the tall man smiling down at your affectionately.

“I will send for you when it is safe”, he stated, answering the silent question of ‘when’ that was written all over your face. He paused for a moment, tearing his gaze away as a small device in his pocket began to beep incessantly. A frown tinged his features before his eyes returned to you, a torn smile on his full lips. “I have to leave now if I am going to make it out of Numabni.”

“Then I will wait for you onítèmi.”

“I love you, my omega.”

“I love you too, my Alpha. Be safe.”

He pressed one last kiss to your lips before dashing out of the room and down the stairs. Dropping back onto your bed, you sighed, a swell of happiness filling your chest as you ran your hand down the back of your neck. There would be no more sleeping this evening.

Batboys With a Tall S/O

Request from anon: Wow could I have headcanons of the boys with a tall so…..I’m like taller then all of them (6'1 ish, or so)
I’m 5/11 so could you please do headcanons for the bat boys with a tall S/O as well

AN: I don’t know the struggles of being tall so if this is inaccurate me please correct me.  Also thanks to anons and @bon-travail98 for helping


  • We can all agree that Jaybird is mostly the tallest batboy
  • He doesn’t really think its a problem that you’re tall.  He kinda thinks it’s cute
  • Even if you’re tall Jason still feels the need to protect you
  • Kisses are cute between you two
  • He lifts you up even though you’re basically the same height
  • Sometimes you get looks for already being so tall and it makes you self conscious
  • If Jason hears that someone is making comments about you height they better be ready to catch those hands
  • One time someone said “Wow you’re tall for a girl.”
  • You bet Jason did something
  • His name is, Jason Catch These Hands Todd
  • He’s just always makes sure that people don’t talk about you cause he thinks you’re the living embodiment of a goddess and everyone should see it too
  • This boy will worship you and your height
  • Like you feeling insecure, oh there goes Dick worshipping you and explaining why he loves it
  • Someone asks about you being tall, there’s Dick defending you and making you feel better
  • You don’t wear heels so you’re not taller than him
  • He doesn’t understand why it matters that you’re taller
  • So then he goes out and buys you heels even if he knows you wouldn’t wear them
  • He just wants you to be confident
  • Plus it wouldn’t bother him if you were taller
  • But like the cuddling is real
  • Sometimes you two flip the roles of big/small spoon
  • It really just matters on who’s feeling what
  • You’re either taller than him or about the same height
  • It’s not just you who’s insecure in the relationship
  • Tim’s one of the “shortest” out of the batboys.  And his S/O is taller
  • So when he feels insecure you always cuddle and wrap yourself around him
  • Mostly that makes him feel better
  • You’re the person who’s always getting stuff out of the top shelf
  • Poor Timmers is an armrest.  Not that he minds
  • Cuddling involves you being the big spoon most of the time
  • Sometimes you pick him up to mock him.  He’s fine with it
  • Did I mention that you’re the big spoon?
  • Oh man Damian.  My smol child
  • People really got on you for dating him
  • Even your friends said that he was too short
  • To you, the difference is something that REALLY makes you insecure
  • Damian being Damian, he never really noticed how tall you were until someone pointed it out
  • And then it made you feel bad
  • Which made Damian fight them
  • He kinda thought you were his height?
  • He insists on being the big spoon and you let him
  • But man oh man does he get taller
  • When you’re older you don’t feel as bad about your height
  • Then you’re like the same height
  • He’s still the big spoon though

Ok so

IM trully confused with something.

  • Yoongi said that he recorded the So Far Away guide with Jimin; but then someone asked him why we cant hear this version, and he said something about the company and that he doesnt have a copy, something like that. (i saw this in some post on tumblr, it was in the yoonmin tag, was from a fansight i guess? If its fake or doesnt exist then please someone tell me!!)


  • BUT then RM showed us HIS guide of Serendipity, like, it was with him. Even if he didnt released, he at least showed us this version. Im asking myself

Why can’t Yoongi do the same with the guide of So Far Away?

If im speaking nonsense please correct me, or if someone has teories please also talk to me.

anonymous asked:

How did you start your fish tank? I'd ;like to start one up myself but I have no idea where to start... Any tips or pointers?

Hello there anon! Thank you for the ask :DD

I’ve got tons of tips and pointers for ya :3 Below I’ll explain the basics of fishkeeping, the stuff that generally applies to all freshwater fish tanks like the basic supplies you’ll need to gather and explain the nitrogen cycle! (I’m not sure about saltwater stuff, though, as I haven’t gotten into that part of the hobby…yet ;p) The species you want to keep will dictate the specifics of your tank, beyond the basics, though, so keep that in mind going forward! :)

The Basic Supplies:
- Tank
- Filter
- Heater/Chiller (if required)
- Thermometer
- Substrate (optional)
- Décor/Hides
- Water Test Kit

Choose a tank that is sufficient in size for the species you plan on keeping! Long tanks are almost always better than tall tanks, as fish swim side-to-side and not up-and-down :) If this is your first ever fish tank, I’d start out with a fish tank no smaller than 5 or 10 gallons, if not larger! Larger volumes of water hold a stable cycle more easily! :)

There are three main types of filtration: mechanical/physical, biological, and chemical. Mechanical filtration is what filters out particles from the water, large or small. Biological filtration refers to the nitrifying bacteria that perform the nitrogen cycle! Chemical filtration is filtration that helps to take certain chemicals out of the water.

Types of Filters:
- Hang-On-Back (HOB) filters hang on the lip of the tank. They have a ‘media basket’ where the filter media goes (usually cartridges). If you buy a filter that requires filter cartridges, I recommend replacing those with a ceramic media, sponge media, or both since you’ll have to replace the cartridge eventually and that can disrupt your cycle. Fluval AquaClear filters are a great HOB filter for larger tanks, and come with sponge (physical, biological filtration), ceramic (biological filtration), and carbon media (chemical filtration)!

- Sponge filters are great for fish and other aquatic animals that prefer (or require) low-flow! These filters are basically blocks of sponge hooked up to an air pump. The air pump forces air up through the sponge, creating a vacuum that sucks up particles (mechanical filtration) and water (biological filtration). The air is forced out the top of the sponge, creating bubbles that agitate the surface, aiding in gas exchange!

-Canister filters are like HOB filters on steroids. Instead of a ‘media basket’ you get a literal ‘media bucket’ (biological, chemical, mechanical filtration). A canister filter (also called an external filter) is placed somewhere outside the tank, and doesn’t hang on the lip like a HOB does. Its great if you don’t want to see your filter or if you need a ton of filtration for a larger tank :p Mini canister filters also exist, if you’d like one for a smaller tank :)

- Undergravel Filters are something I’ve heard pretty mixed reviews about, and I’ve never personally used one. They’re usually grated, plastic, thin hollow block filters that you put under the substrate of your aquarium (I believe gravel works best with these filters, as I assume using sand or another small-particle substrate would fall into the filter? someone please correct me if I’m wrong .-.). They may provide enough surface area for nitrifying bacteria (biological filtration) if you have a very small bioload, or if you could fill them with some type of media…these are probably the most painful to clean, though, since you’d have to take apart your entire tank…

Heaters & Chillers:
Your fish may require a heater or chiller! If they do, its for good reason. Fish are ectothermic (like reptiles), meaning that they rely on their environment to help them regulate body temperature. (Humans like you and me are endothermic, meaning that we can produce our own body heat/regulate our body’s temperature.)

A fish that is too cold will become lethargic, stressed, and may refuse to eat. Temperature affects bodily processes as well, such as digestion, circulation, and metabolism regulation. Temperatures that are colder will slow down these bodily processes and warmer temperatures will usually do the opposite. Because improper temperature is stressful for any fish, they will experience a suppressed immune system as well, and will be more susceptible to illnesses as a result :/
Some fish require heaters/higher temperatures to function properly (Bettas, tetras, other tropical fish). Some fish require no heater, or the addition of chiller, to function properly (goldfish, minnows, danios).

As a general rule of thumb, heaters should be 5-10 watts per gallon. Adjustable heaters are always more reliable than non-adjustable heaters. Adjustable heaters also usually have thermostats, so they turn on and off automatically to ensure that the aquarium’s temperature stays constant(ish). Usually you don’t need a chiller unless you’re keeping a temperate- or cold-water species and where you live it doesn’t get below the high 70s all year.

Yes it’s necessary! You need to be able to monitor what temperature your tank is, whether you have a heater, chiller, or neither :) Even if you have an adjustable heater with a thermostat, it may not be accurate to +/-1 degree. Avoid those strip-sticker thermometers. They’re not very accurate :/ You can buy glass ones at Walmart for about 1.50$ though! :p

There are lots of different substrates to choose from! Gravel, sand, plant substrate (like fluorite), or no substrate at all! Some substrates are ‘inert’ (don’t affect pH or other parameters) some substrates are ‘active’ (affect pH or other parameters). Some aquatic species have a very specific range of pH/KH/GH, like shrimp, and may require substrates that help you achieve that range of values. Some species require certain substrates for their health and safety, like corydoras, which require sand (or barebottom) as gravel and other rough substrates can cut up their tummies or injure their barbels. If the species you keep doesn’t require any special substrate, then choose whatever substrate you like best! It’s your tank! Have fun with it! :)

One of the funnest (idc if funnest isn’t a word *3*) part of setting up an aquarium is decorating it!! Some fish have delicate fins (like bettas) that require either live or silk (material, non-plastic) plants and décor devoid of sharp edges. Hides are also important. Providing adequate caves and cover for your fish to hide in/feel safe in/explore is the functional aspect of décor. Make sure you’re meeting your animal’s needs :) Other than making sure that your décor is safe and functional for the creatures you plan to keep, go full ham!! Crazy color gravel with wacky colors and glow in the dark caves or an aquascaped, planted tank with driftwood and rocks! :D

Water Test Kit:
In order for you to maintain the health of your fish, you’ll need to know what your water parameters are :) You should at least test for Ammonia, Nitrites, Nitrates, and pH. You may need to test for other things like copper, KH, or GH depending on the species you’re keeping. A liquid test kit (like the API Freshwater Master Kit) is easy to read and very accurate :) (plus you get to use test tubes n stuff…like the lil fish scientist you are *3*)

The Nitrogen Cycle!

*ALL* fish (yes that includes bettas…and all animals for that matter) produce waste. Because all aquatic animals produce waste, they require (biological) filtration of some sort to process that waste.

Fish produce waste in the form of ammonia. Ammonia is toxic above 0ppm (parts per million). So you’ve got all this ammonia floating around in the water, right? and you’ve got water running through your filter…so these bacteria start growing all over your fish tank, wherever there’s water flow, but we want to concentrate on the bacteria that are growing in your filter media. This bacteria will be processing the waste that your fish or aquatic animal produces :)

So your fish produced some waste, and it’s floating around in the water as ammonia. The first bacteria (#1) that grows will ‘eat’ the ammonia and then ‘poop’ out nitrites.

Nitrites are also toxic to aquatic animals above 0ppm though :/ so then another bactiera (#2) grows and it ‘eats’ these nitrites that are floating around in the water and ‘poops’ out nitrates.

Nitrates are safe for fish (up to 20ppm)! :D Since there’s no bacteria that’s going to grow to eat these nitrates that are in the water, we have to physically remove them by doing a water change. A helpful post about water changes, how they work, and why they’re important:

If you have live plants, they will use some of the ammonia, nitrite, and/or nitrates in the water as nutrients :) Some plants will use more than others, as some plants are heavy root feeders, some are floaters, and some prefer to be somewhere in the water column. (note: live plants SHOULD NOT totally replace water changes! water changes are still necessary even for planted tanks :3)

To recap:
Fish waste (ammonia) -> bacteria #1 -> nitrite -> bacteria #2 -> nitrate -> water change

If you have any other questions, Anon, please send me a message or another ask!! :)

If anyone would like to add onto this, or if corrections need to be made, please reblog/comment/let me know! :)

Hi! So I'm asexual and aromantic and next year I want to go to a pride parade or whatever it's called but I don't know whether people would like me being here because some people don't think that ace/aro people belong in the lgbt community. I was just wondering what if you think I should go or not. Thanks!


I’m sorry your feeling the conflict. My understanding, and if I’m wrong someone please correct me, from other people I’ve talked to outside of tumblr is that most LGBT groups have been super supportive of ace aro people whether they’re cis-het or not.

I think if you want to do pride then you should do pride.

Maybe it’d help to go with a group of people? I wish I had more to say. Good luck.
