Tomorrow, I have a postgraduate open day at Cardiff Uni. My plan is to do my History MA there because it’s a damn good uni, especially for history, and wouldn’t be too far from anyone who is important to me so…..it’s an important day.
1. vaping is a social art for him. he cant do it alone. but no one will do it with him because once he gets up there enough he starts blowing smoke in peoples faces and everyone hates it
2. he takes the “no vaping within 25 feet of a public establishment” law very seriously. he thinks it applies to houses too. hes been caught vaping in the middle of shitfuck nowhere several times
3. his favourite flavour is strawberry. he once spilled his cartridge into the washer along with everyones fucking clothes because he was stoned and thought it was soap. the smell still hasnt come out.
4. that being said he once decided to try to vape bubble liquid at ass in the morning and blew bubbles for a week straight. unbelibubble!
To be physically strong is not a strength within itself but a capacity of interaction with the physical for example managing to lift a heavy object or pushing a car. The strength is not something that is just there within the physically strong. Would that apply to intelligence too. Within the physically weak and physically strong there is no difference between being physically weak or strong. WITHOUT A WORLD TO LIVE IN HOW COULD A MIGHTY WORRIOR BE MIGHTY
everyone has that one character in a show they watch where during every ep they’re usually just waiting for that specific character’s scenes to come on and enjoy everything about them from the way they talk to the way they walk and smile whenever that person comes onscreen. a scene without that character in it feels like it’s just missing something and in your eyes they’re the best thing about the show and you don’t want anything bad to happen to them ever
When I get bummed out and convinced I’m not *actually* a writer, I think about Rincewind.
Rincewind, in case you don’t know, is a character from Terry Pratchett’s Discworld series. There’s only two things you really need to know about Rincewind:
1)He’s a wizard
2)He’s the worst fucking wizard on the face of the Disk
It’s true. It’s pointed out multiple times, by both Rincewind and others, that he is the sorriest excuse of a wizard to exist. He failed out of the Unseen University (a much more kid-friendly Hogwarts); he can’t remember any spells; he’s altogether awful at what he is.
And yet, he’s still a wizard.
Yes, he sucks at it. Yeah, literally anyone could do it better than him. Yeah, he’s been told that by all accounts, he shouldn’t be a wizard at all.
But he’s still a wizard. He gets very defensive about it, too. He will defend the fact that he is a wizard, however terrible, to the grave (and probably back, too, because Death’s daughter will scare you right back to life). And I think that is just amazing. He knows exactly what he is – he *knows* he’s a wizard.
When I look at my writing and I see an impassable tar pit of impossible mistakes, of contrived, boring plots, or I look at another’s work and see how far away I am from them and wonder if I have the resolve to try and catch up (and most likely fail), I think about Rincewind. I think about knowing what you are, and fighting tooth and nail for it, even when you suck at it.
So get on your Wizzard hat and keep doing the thing you love, because, let’s face it, you’d only put yourself through this kind of hell for something you love.
i’m kind of against kings in fantasy because i feel like most people don’t really think about them: either it’s a Tolkien-esque “the King has returned again!” or they’re just sort of…there b/c this is Fantasy, we do Kings, but have they considered
dying kings, king-of-the-year, the king who has to fight every year to reclaim his throne, the king who knows that he’s only king for as long as he keeps his strength
the king and the land are one, but not, like, in a triumphant way, in a way where the land claims the king for its own
a king who must be physically perfect (the king is not physically perfect and has to hide it)
the divine king and what it would mean to actually be ruled by a god
I am a Huge Nerd for alien and human interactions that go across tumblr (space Australia and Stabby come to mind) but like for real what about the human concept of luck? Each culture has its own, too, and also superstition so like this human will go nowhere near black cats but others are just like ‘oh kitty kitty kitty’.
Try to explain to someone that doesn’t understand that breaking a mirror is more than just a glass hazard. No it’s not a mystical mirror or a religious thing. It’s just a mirror, you broke it, now you get 7 earth years of bad luck. Is to the day? Who knows. But 7 years dude.
Or like that one person who always has stuff break around them. ‘Why are they banned from the engine room?’ 'Just trust us Nyrak.’
Or what about people who things always go outrageously right for. That person where any number of the things that happen should not even be able to happen, and yet here we are.
That person that has the luck/innate skill to balance anything on their nose.
Lucky numbers. The importance of the zodiac too, while we’re at it. “The stars are not in alignment” 'have you been reading that human newspaper again Marshal?’ “No, Lydia, shut up” ,Are your species sensitive to the stars, humans?, “Nyark you know if I could explain it I would but I honestly cannot”
Good luck explaining Murphy’s Law to aliens who do not have the concept of luck or cosmic mythical interference.
-When they don’t close the door. Why don’t they ever mention them closing the door??? Boi if I was fucking someone I wouldn’t want any open doors
-When they don’t take off their shoes and socks for some fucking reason
-Spit as lube
-I REPEAT. SPIT AS LUBE.
-NO LUBE AT ALL
-Even if it’s their first time they’re still somehow perfect sex gods. Not really a peeve as much as I want to read a smutty part of a fanfic that has someone sneezes in the middle of it or some other obscure thing happening
morally gay: characters that walk the fine line between “good” and “bad” in a way that is complex and engaging as well as being largely motivated or influenced by gay love, gay resentment, or just badly thought out gay stupidity
