Don't you find it highkey depressing that we have to congratulate countries for not electing Muggle Voldemorts as presidents? I mean as a French person Im relieved we escaped the worst but not thrilled in any way and certainly not proud of how roughly 1/3 people were ok with Umbridge. [this is not a hate ask at all, it's just that this overjoyed reaction I see all over the Internet has me raising an eyebrow]. Anyway I LOVE your comics, they're so funny and witty, keep doing you fellow snaek ;)

I agree - I had a moment of relief/euphoria when I saw the result, and drew my Vive La France doodle while quite tipsy and singing La Marseillaise. I guess living in the Anglo/American news world for the past year has made me paranoid.

Anyway I was swiftly Put In My Place by various gloomy French people, and tbh I agree - I’m not pro-Macron either, and a 1/3 fascist France is…not good. I still like the doodle of Emily with her nips out but if I could edit the pic I would change the caption from ‘Vive La France’ to ‘Ouffff’

I hate him with every fibre of my being. Indian athletes do not have the privilege of high tech equipment and they are not given funding or support the way athletes in the west do (unless they’re cricketers). Sakshi Malik is the daughter of a bus conductor and had to literally fight her way to the top because she faced opposition from people in her village for taking up sports because she was a girl. She has a 9 to 5 job to support herself when most athletes dedicate their lives to their sport. PV Sindhu had to travel 56 kilometres every day to practice her badminton. And for the first time in my life i saw this country care about something that wasn’t cricket, it was so heartwarming to see everyone cheer on these two girls and be proud of them for their bronze and silver medals. And Piers Morgan’s response to someone sharing India’s celebrations with him is that it is ‘embarrassing’? How can someone be so vile.

anonymous asked:

May I please have some head canons for todo, izuku, and kacchan who have S/Os that are from a different country and tend to speak their native language when they're excited or watching their favorite shows? And the boys get quite interested in the language so they learn a bit to be able to understand them?

!!! thanks for requesting! that’s indeed an interesting request you’ve got there my bro im so proud 


MIDORIYA IZUKU: FILIPINO 

  • she was telling her best friend over the phone about how adorable this ball of sunshine was on their date! 
  • “omg bes hindi siya gwapo, pero ang cute-cute niya! ang cute niya mag-salita, at ang talino pa niya!” (TRANS: omg dude, he’s not handsome, but he’s very adorable! the way he speaks is cute, and prior to that, he’s smart as well!)
  • izuku was indeed puzzled, but he was fascinated that his s/o actually spoke her native language other than japanese!
  • kinda kinky tbh but oh what does izuku know he’s an innocent bub
  • the kind of guy to be determined to search up japanese-filipino dictionaries and study them the whole night, successfully learned a tad of words the next day 
  • “magandang umaga sa iyo, s/o-chan! ready ka na ba?” (TRANS: good morning to you, s/o-chan! are you ready?)
  • his s/o is shocked and offended by how cute he sounded with that poorly accented filipino, but she ends up bombarding izuku w many filipino questions that izuku swears his head is about to explode 

KATSUKI BAKUGO: SPANISH 

  • here’s how it went down: despacito. 
  • it was 10am in the morning, clearly not the time for bakugo to wake up just yet. he grumpily storms down your room and slams it open, only able to find you blasting some weird ass spanish music with you reciting it with pure strength. 
  • “what the flying fuck are you mouthing, you dumbass?” 
  • “sorry, katsuki! it’s my native language.”
  • “YOUR NATIVE LANGUAGE? YOUR NATIVE LANGUAGE THAT YOU NEVER TOLD ME?!” 
  • tbh he ends up reciting amazingly good spanish as the days progress, and now, every time despacito comes on, the two basically wake the neighborhood 
  • “despacito! quiero respirar tu cuello despacito, deja que te diga cosas al oído, para que te acuerdes si no estás conmigo!” (TRANS: pls search it on google im too lazy u know the song anyway might as well sing it) 
  • “damn kids with that despacito song. when i was your age, we played the classics! the spanish classics to be exact!” 
  • “welcome to the 21st century, dad.” 

TODOROKI SHOUTO: FRENCH 

  • oh yea this is my shiteu
  • okay lets get things straight here, you can agree with me that shouto is a closet romantic or u can step out
  • and when i mean closet romantic, i mean stargazing at the stars on top of a breezy hill with idk who’s car’s parked on the tree
  • his s/o, being a native french, had seen such a view like this back at her hometown, therefore resulting her to speaking in french breathlessly. 
  • “les étoiles sont magnifiques ce soir!” (TRANS: the stars are magnificent tonight!) 
  • shouto hums, and stops to think about what he wants to say next. surely, he knew that it was french his s/o was speaking, and not japanese. 
  • he figured he’d pull some of his cards. 
  • “mon amour, ce n'est pas aussi belle que toi.” (TRANS: my love, it is not as beautiful as you.) 
  • shouto is rendered embarrassed, considering that his s/o is giggling. it’s probably from his accent
  • his s/o looks at him, the same sparkling stars that reflects both of their eyes as his s/o smiles, brushing a stray bang out of his face.
  • “ et pourtant vous êtes le plus beau dans ce domaine d'étoiles.” (TRANS: and yet you are the most beautiful in this field of stars.) 

BONUS: KAMINARI DENKI: DOTHRAKI 

  • god i swear kaminari is my memey son fite me
  • dont get me wrong, i can totally see kaminari watching game of thrones and learning dothraki just to speak to his s/o, who is purely japanese, and doesnt even know dothraki 
  • “the jalan ki tih atthirar, are yeri hurt?” (TRANS: the moon of my life, are you hurt?)
  • “kaminari, what?” 
  • “god you are so beautiful.”
  • “okay…”

guzma whats wrong with you
so im having the grunt record for the highly anticipated guzcast 20. the idea was tellin em to say why they like being around. i figured it would get real but for fuck sake i wasnt ready. the show we do will never ever matter as much as the effect of the community that came from it. in the discord, theres 60 of us or so and im proud to say we got every kind of person. every race, multiple countries (like a shitload) and every form of gender or sexuality you can imagine. just a bunch of broken toys. and the audio they’ve sent shows how broken they really are. so there i am with my arm bleeding, stuck in the fucking door, crying like a bitch with a big smile on my face for the part of the audio where they say our group has helped them in any way. 

honestly the number of blogs i’ve blocked tonight is a reminder i am surrounded by nastees at all times and im sensing a common theme here. guess it’s time to play another round of

otayurgle blog bingo

  • has the word “trash” somewhere in the url, title, or description
  • recently reblogged the newest freshest yurgle porn hot off the ao3 press machine to share with all their sinbabies
  • the word yaoi. anywhere. on their blog. title. url. description. 
  • “yaoi is life!!!! im a sinner and proud of it!!!!!1″
  • ot*bek x y*rio IS LIFE!!!!!!!!
  • “i love my babies”
  • “yurio is so small i love him he’s my son…can’t wait for him to get married to otabek!!!!!” 
  • yuri as their icon, header, or mentioned in their url (…not always)
  • otabek as the icon, header, or url (99% of the time its Evil)
  • “here’s my breakdown of the yurgle argument and why it’s invalid. HERES A PICTURE OF WIKIPEDIA ARTICLES LISTING THE AGE OF CONSENT IN EVERY COUNTRY. mic drop antis whatcha gonna do now”
  • “traci | 23 | multifandom nonsense | cis het female | i don’t know how themes work | ask me anything! if you need something tagged let me know | no ship hate zone! 🚃💙”
  • straight up just. fucking. ns*fw yurgle porn in my face.
  • oh this blog isn’t so bad but let me check k*lling st*lking …
    just in case and –
  • oh.
  • oh.
  • jesus fucking christ on a candlestick

feel free to add on any other nastees but this experience was cleansing 

TAZ Episode 67 Liveblog

1:35 “It’s the end of the world. Again.” Is a fucking fantastic line thank you Griffin holy sHIT
3:00 “The Day of the Unseen Invasion.” Is cool but did Griffin just use “I”? “I take umbrige with that one.” I hoping for Dm Griffin I really am.

im so proud of myself i moved across the country to the middle of the ocean 5 years ago with $200 and a backpack to my name, no drivers license, disassociating regularly and knew no one. i have come a long way in a lot of ways.

ill admit that ive just woken up so im a bit bleary but

id just like to say im so very proud of everyone from my generation who went out to vote yesterday. i saw absolutely nobody who was over 18 who didnt vote in my friendship circle, and that was honestly so encouraging for me, considering the fact that i couldnt vote yet. whatever happens now, im happy that so many young people took it upon themselves to vote for the future of our country.
