it costs everything

anonymous asked:

I always sort of imagine mephisto spoiling his s/o rotten with gifts. Could you do a scenario where s/o feels really bad about him spending so much money on her/him when they have nothing to repay him with?

DUDE SAAAAME

  • They bring it up to Mephisto after seeing how much everything costs
  • He assures them it is no problem
  • When they start to not accept gifts Mephisto starts to worry
  • They tell him to stop because they can’t do anything for him in return
  • He informs them being with him is enough
  • They feel even worse about it then
  • He wont stop he thinks it would be silly
  • If they keep brining it up he will offer to find them a job
  • If they feel that is still giving them something he will help them out at least
  • He insists they don’t buy him anything
  • If it continues to be a problem he will talk to them about it
  • Come to an agreement to only buy gifts here and there
  • Instead they agree to have date nights where they split the price
  • Mephisto doesn’t care for it but he wants his s/o to feel better about everything
  • He will find ways to spoil them other than gifts
I’m still pissed at The Odd Gentleman

Not for taking Hussie’s money, but for WASTING HIS TIME. If they had told him immediately that they were going to run off with it, Hussie could have bounced back. But instead he had to pull away from his LIVE PERFORMANCE ACT for a solid YEAR to try to whip them into shape because they just threw him in a loop.

Hussie will never recover from that. The Gigapause asked more patience from his fans than could ever be expected for the type of story it was, and most of them left. He knows this game has a market a FRACTION of the size it was when he set out to make it, and it will never grow beyond that. So why is he still determined to finish it, without cutting corners? The same reason he asked us to send him our selfies: because the handful of us that are still here mean that much to him.

Imagine if the worst that ever happened to Hussie was that he lost $600k of game funding in the blink of an eye. Homestuck would have finished almost a year earlier. The fandom would still be almost as large as in its heyday, and would still remember the comic with fondness. Hiveswap’s production would be shortened by almost two years. We could be playing Act 2 by now. The game’s sales might even match what he had lost. What Pumpkin never would have been absorbed into We Love Fine. Book 2 of Paradox Space could have been completely posted online for free already, and a third issue might even be in the works. There would still be enough demand for the print volumes that they could feasibly see their completion. Hussie would have a thriving enterprise after a decade of work instead of something he has to keep sinking more into from his pocket just to hold together.

So fuck The Odd Gentleman, because they didn’t just cost Hussie $600k. They cost him EVERYTHING.

The Most Beautiful Man In The World, Who Lives In My Building And Only Ever Sees Me When I Look Disgusting

The Most Beautiful Man In The World lives in my building. i don’t know his name. we met on a bus, when i smiled WAY too brightly at him for strangers because, honest to god, my whole heart lit up in a way that made me think, “oh, i must know that guy!!” no. i didn’t. he’s just The Most Beautiful Man In The World.

what does The Most Beautiful Man In The World look like? i will tell you:

  • like the way the sun spills over water at dusk
  • like the way food smells when you’re hungry
  • like the sound angels make when they’re doing folk covers of pop songs on their heavenly harps
  • and also kind of like the guy who played Chad in “high school musical,” if the guy who played Chad in “high school musical” was the most beautiful man in the world.

i tell you this not only to brag that i live in the same apartment complex as The Most Beautiful Man In The World but also because i want to know WHY, if there even IS A GOD, every single time i run into The Most Beautiful Man In The World i look like a LITERAL DUMPSTER TROLL that has just CRAWLED OUT OF ITS GARBAGE HOUSE in search of FREE WIFI AND A SLURPEE. i want to know why i can never just BE COOL with The Most Beautiful Man In The World when we ride the elevator together, which is!!!! kind of often!!!!!

DID YOU GUYS KNOW that sometimes i look nice?? sometimes i actually look like a FUNCTIONING ADULT!!! sometimes i would go so far as to say i am an ATTRACTIVE INDIVIDUAL!!!!! 

you know who DOESN’T know any of that???

THE MOST BEAUTIFUL MAN IN THE WORLD, WHO LIVES IN MY BUILDING!!!

here’s a quick rundown of the last few times i ran into The Most Beautiful Man In The World:

  • i was wearing a maxi dress i had very cleverly biked home in, without a helmet* (*don’t try that at home, kids), in the VERY HOT AFTERNOON SUN, so i was a GROSS SWEAT MONSTER but without any OBVIOUS INDICATOR that there was a normal reason for it, and i couldn’t stand to look at him so i just glared at my phone while he probably wondered, alarmed, whether i was fleeing the scene of a crime
  • i was wearing a white shirt that i had not SECONDS before spilled salsa ALL OVER in a big red stain right down the front like a KINDERGARTNER
  • i was carrying two armfuls of ENORMOUS bags of popcorn with a three musketeers bar literally in my mouth and he overheard me say through my stuffed candy cheeks to my doorman, “oh, no, i’m not having a party, this is literally all for me”
  • i dropped my backpack while opening my mail and said to it, defeatedly, “why? why did you do that when i explicitly told you not to? do you like being on the floor?” 
  • i fell into and then off of the elevator

why??? why does this happen??? what vengeful god has orchestrated it so the ONLY TIMES i ever run into The Most Beautiful Man In The World are when i could easily be mistaken for a child’s doll that has been put through the wash by accident, or a dollar bill that has been stained by years of being in people’s sweaty palms, or a mop with eyes???

whatever. everything costs money and everyone you love disappoints you. Mop Eyes out.

 I’m Magnus looking fascinated about Even singing

I’m Magnus (and Jonas) checking for whatever has made his friend stop singing

I’m Magnus telling the boys to start singing along to support Isak and Even (at this moment is when the tears I’m trying to hold start streaming down my face)

I’m Magnus checking that the boys are still singing

and I’m Magnus having the time of his life 

Ugh I love this kid(s) so much it hurts. 

Capitalism is honestly the biggest inhibitor of learning tbh, like … people even recognize this when they say shit like 

“if everyone got free college then a degree would be useless” 

lmao like THEY KNOW IT’S FUCK HARD to get an education under capitalism.

what with the egregious costs for everything from attending school to getting school material … to getting access to journals .. etc. 

you literally can’t fucking do anything without money if you wanna learn and do serious research, literally everything is behind a paywall. 

scientific journals, economic journals, finance journals, etc. all ridiculously expensive to gain access to. If you can’t afford to access this shit good luck completing your dissertation lmao. 

A single paper can be anywhere from $50-$200 easy to access. 

capitalism does not want people to learn unless they got money, and yall fucking recognize this, you recognize it lmao. it shows in everything you say.

So now Secret Empire has revealed its Shyamalan Twist and given the readers a Good Guy Steve Rogers as well as Hydra Cap, and the kinds of dickbags who, when this whole bullshit began were dismissing people’s complaints with “oh come on, don’t you know how comics works, it’s all going to be put back at the end, blah blah blah…” are crowing I-Told-You-So’s.

But here’s the thing:

Yeah, fucknuts.  We always knew this.

Happy 42nd birthday, Zach Braff!
April 6, 1975

you can’t act like your healthy recipes are cheap when you omit the initial cost of everything, if your bag of tomatoes costs $5 and you only use half a tomato in your recipe you can’t pretend that its cost is like 25 cents. Normal people can’t just go and buy half a tomato for the same price as your fragmented cost, it’s not realistic. 

You’re purposely misleading people because you know the cost of everything together would reach up into the hundreds. And vegetables go bad if someone doesn’t have the time to cook them, and eat them. so not everyone can go buy these bags of vegetables in bulk “because it’s cheaper” and expect them to last, your fragmented partial costs don’t mean shit.

So thanks Pillsbury…

For making gluten free products and not jacking up the price for them like everyone else. Their gluten free funfetti cake mix cost the same $1.99 that all the other Pillsbury cake mixes cost. Same with their gluten free cookies and bread products.

Everyone else who is Celiac/gluten sensitive knows my pain of paying ridiculous prices for gluten free products because we don’t have much of a choice. GF pancake mix can easily cost $4-5. I can easily pay $4 for a box of GF cookies and I won’t get nearly as many as you get in a normal box. A GF dairy free (because I have to be both) pizza in the frozen food department cost $8. A GF/DF mac and cheeze costs $4. Non dairy ice cream is $4-5. These are all at my local supermarket. No wonder I am finding myself buying mostly single packs of fruits and vegetables. They’re actually cheaper for once.

SO

i would JUST LIKE to point out a few KEY THINGS:

1) Finn gets stabbed TWICE and is thrown across the drop pod during a thunder storm while foaming at the mouth

2) MURPHY????

3) Jasper is speared then hung up on a tree and then later got his neck sliced into

4) Raven is shot with the bullet pressing on her spine and loses feeling in her bottom half of her leg after going through multiple *life threatening* surgeries with no pain medication, she also suffered head trauma 3 times & bone marrow extraction w/ a drill and no meds????

5) fREAKinG MUrpHY

6) Bellamy is hanging upside down BLEEDING INTO TUBES FOR HOURS

7) Maya is exposed to radiation and comes back and SO DOES JASPER

8) Lincoln dies like three times and was a dang REAPER

9) Clarke was beaten to almost death all throughout the series

10) Indra gets SHOT over and OVER AGAIN

11) Abby AND MARcus are trapped underground after an explosion, then 2 cave ins and fucking GET OUT after Marcus already died

12) M U R P H Y

13) Jaha floats himself with no cord across the freaking outer space with HIS HELMET BUSTING BEING EXPOSED FULLY TO THE SPACE VACCUM, makes the landing, and flies down to earth in a broken piece of JUNK

14) EMERSON???

15) THEY LIKE ALL SWALLOW AI’S?? AND SURVIVE THE KILL SWITCH??

16) um…. all the people who surVIVED THE BOMBS IN THE FIRST PLACE

AND YOU THINK THE *COMMANDER* CAN BE TAKEN DOWN BY *ONE SHOT* BELOW THE CRITICAL TORSO AREA WTF SHE SLAYED THE QUEEN OF THE ICE NATION BY CHUCKING A SPEAR AT HER FROM ACROSS THE BATTLE GROUND, SHE’S FOUGHT SO HARD AND IS SO STRONG AND YOU THINK YOU CAN JUST KILL THE ONLY PERSON/BEST FRIEND/LOVER THAT NEVER STOPPED LOVING CLARKE FOR A SECOND, PLEGED HER LIFE TO HER VOWING TO PROTECT HER NO MATTER THE COST AFTER EVERYTHING SHE DID AND PUT 100 % OF HER TRUST IN HER EVEN AFTER LOSING COSTIA AND OPENED UP TO HER AND PROTECTED HER EVEN AFTER DEATH this is such bullshit

did i miss anyone ELSES INSANE COMPLETELY IMPOSSIBLE NOT PLAUSIBLE SURVIVAL?

Lee Minhyuk

It is unexpected of him due to his charming face, but this man is no innocent man. He is known as the ‘sweetheart scam,’ the one that uses his pretty face for money and secrets. He can seduce any man or woman alike into his false sense of security, and after that anyone is as good as his. He is known for gaining access for high security information from very important people, and it’s a mystery to a lot of people how he does it - but those are the kind of people that have never seen Lee Minhyuk in person, the kind of people that have never been under his intensive, lustful stare, they haven’t been conned by his tongue, he can dish out any desire that his lover wants to here for a few, vital words that could cost them a lot more than they had bargained for.

But meeting you was different, and falling for you was like a slap in the face. He didn’t know how to react, what to do - he couldn’t tell The X Clan, there was too much risk, and if any other mafia found out he felt attractions towards you it was almost set in stone that you would die. Even though he knew all this, and understood that any wrong moves could cost him everything, he still passed you by, said hello whenever he saw you. He still had hope that one day, things could be different.

{y/n}: “Back again, Minhyuk?”

Minhyuk: “How could I miss up the opportunity to see your-” *sees Shownu approaching* “Uh… you.”


Yoo Kihyun

Originally posted by klhyunnie

This man is known for his coldness, and it isn’t often that an enemy comes by him and makes it out alive. Kihyun is an assassin, a cold-blooded assassin that is behind the murders of some of the highest ranking people in the country. No one, not even in the x clan, asks him about the murders he has carried out, and even if they did, Kihyun probably wouldn’t be able to recall how many he has actually done, but he could give you specific gory details. Kihyun is lethal, and almost as high up as Shownu the leader, he has a lot of respect and no one dares to cross him.

But everyone has emotions, and Kihyun couldn’t stop himself from feeling them when he got to know you better. A part of The X Clan, you work alongside them, helping them plan out complicated procedures and worming ways out of complex situations, and Kihyun has a love for that. But his attraction to you is kept in the darkness of unlit rooms and distance between anyone else. You find yourself falling for him too, but you both know the consequence for falling in love in the business.

Kihyun: “Stay safe, I love you.” *Muttering*

{y/n}: “What was that?”

Kihyun: “w-what, I said stay safe, elephant juice!”


Shin Hoseok/ Wonho

Originally posted by kihqun

He may look sweet, but Hoseok is far from it. He goes under the name Wonho, and makes some of the biggest drug deals in the country. He’s a smart man, and knows how to get away unnoticed. A lot of women fall for his charms, but he knows how to play, and these girls are asking to be played. He has a lot of money, and lives an extravagant lifestyle. He never used to be like this, but after being poor and watching his family struggle, he changed, and now, he lives as though he’s a king and everyone else is beneath him. Everyone else except The X Clan, everyone except for you.

There’s a reason he sleeps around, not because he’s simply arrogant, but because he can’t stand knowing how he feels about you. In such a business, he would rather die than let you be killed, but being in a relationship, death for either is going to destroy the other.

Wonho: “Be careful, won’t you?”

{y/n}: “Careful is my middle name.” *grinning as you leave*

Wonho: “I love you…”


Son Hyunwoo/ Shownu

Originally posted by garisanee

This leader is anything but simple. He’s complex, and smart. He is the founder of The X Clan and has started such a revolution. He trusts little, but those he does trust hold high regard in his life. He may be a leader, and he may have all of the more important planning to do, but he is known to participate in the field too. He’s strong, courtesy of his constant working out, and has a good mind - he can take a little blood on his hands, especially when it’s for the greater good. He is highly wanted within the industry, a lot of people want his head on a stick. After all, he is known as one of the most successful leaders in South Korean history. But he never falls into the cracks, and his members are more than ready to help him and watch his back. Even though he’s tough, he gives credit where it’s due and can be the most caring person despite his occupation.

One of the members he treasures most is you, and you feel the same way about him. The two of you are together, even against all odds. You know the risk of it, but it seems as though it would be wasteful to live in fear. The X Clan are well aware of your relationship, meaning that they are all completely hands-off you, (who would want to cross Shownu, really?). You and him compliment each other, and the life isn’t ideal, but you have each other to work it out.

Shownu: “Did I ever tell you how gorgeous you are?”

{y/n}: “Plenty, but I never tire of hearing it.”


Lim Changkyun/ I.M

Originally posted by wonhontology

This man is not to be underestimated, and he is not to be crossed. He is an assassin, but never really works with Kihyun. Kihyun likes to work alone, and Changkyun can deal with either. He is perfect with his long range shots, but he’s even more lethal with a knife. If he intends to kill you, you’re as good as a dead man walking. He’s dangerous, and terrifying, and it isn’t often that his victim will escape his grasp, because he will get them one way or another. Changkyun has seen a lot of horrific things in this world, and has killed mercilessly, but that doesn’t stop him from what he thinks are flaws, his own emotions.

When he came across you, it was like an ice bucket had been dropped over his head. Changkyun didn’t believe in love at first sight, but seeing you changed that perspective entirely. He found himself falling for you, even though he tried his best not to. The two of you became closer when Shownu asked the two of uo to work together. The two of you were in training a lot, using each other to practice and gain strength. The two of you were like the dream team, god help anyone that tries to cross you.

Changkyun: *Pins you down against the floor.* “You’re getting weaker, {y/n}.” *smirking*

{y/n}: “And your ego is getting bigger” *scoffs*

Changkyun: *starts tickling you.* “What was that? What did you say, huh? How would you like being tickled - you should take it back!” *grinning*


Chae Hyungwon

Originally posted by wonhontology

Hyungwon is somehow one of the most frightening in the group. Nobody dares to cross him. Hyungwon is a man of many talents, he isn’t just good in the field of assassination, he is also good at drug deals and the sweetheart scam, he’s an all rounder, and somehow he’s gained a lot of respect from a lot of gangs, there are many that refuse to cross him. He may appear to be very cute though, his sleeping habits give him an innocent look, like he is childlike, but far from it, sleeping isn’t the only activity that goes on in his bed.

Hyungwon and you had been dating for a long time, and honestly, even though there are risks, he still dates you because he figures that anyone that tries to even lay a finger on you has a death wish. He is very sweet with you, most unlike his attitude towards his job and The X Clan. some nights he will help you with training, others he will cuddle with you until it’s 3am and you start talking about the most random shit.

Hyungwon: “I love you Jagiya.”

{y/n}: “I love you too.”

Jooheon is the more emotional of all of the men in the mafia, but he still takes his job very seriously. Jooheon is in charge of all of the technological side and tracking, he is the one on the other side of the ear piece when other members go on dangerous missions. He can hack any system and extract any information that he wants, he is very much wanted by the government for leaking vital information. He can do whatever he wants, hack CCTV footage, top-security information and leave no trace. He is very dangerous, you’d be very stupid to piss him off. As well as this, Jooheon is handy in the field, and there’s no denying that he can be popular with the ladies in his life.

When he met you, he started to like you almost immediately, and even under the dim lights of the casino, he still admired your face as though it was in the light of the day. Even since that moment, he has been a smooth talker, perhaps that’s what made you fall for him in the first place. His aegyo is killer, but that is only shown to you, it has never been portrayed before the other members. And unlike his job, he is very forgiving and kind. He’s very protective of you, and is very careful when letting you go on missions because he loves you and that will never change.

Jooheon: “Be careful Jagi. I’m only on the other side of the earpiece if you need me.”

{y/n}: “Thank you, Jagi.”

I’m suddenly having horrible parallel feelings about that scene between Flint and Silver on the island, and the scene in season one when Flint killed Gates. 

“This is not what i wanted.”

Season one, the captain kills his quartermaster to keep his fight alive. Season four, the quartermaster ‘kills’ his captain, to bring it to an end. 

“What did you do?”

“What was necessary.”

hey there friends,

i mentioned a few weeks ago that my dog has a lump on her neck that needs to be removed, and i can’t afford the surgery. 

the lump is getting worse and i just found it freely bleeding because she scratched it (it’s in a very uncomfortable place for her so her natural response it to scratch at it) the place it’s located also means she can’t wear a neck cone because it will just irritate it further.

we tried giving her a cortisone shot in hopes that it would alleviate her itchiness so she wouldn’t scratch it, but it hasn’t worked.

the surgery is nearly $1000 but without having the mole tested it comes down to around $650.

i’m really sorry to be doing this but any help you can give would be greatly appreciated. my parents don’t like her and won’t help pay for the operation. 

there are pictures of the surgery estimate and cost of everything below the cut. i didn’t include a picture of the lump because it’s pretty gross but if anyone would like a picture just send me a message!

the paypal link is paypal.me/mae426 (it’s under my legal name “Ashlie Keene” because my preferred name is my middle name)

i know this is asking a lot because you guys don’t know me but if you could even just give this a reblog it would help a lot. i’ll post updates and pictures as they’re available.

all for the game by nora sakavic

this isn’t about the ravens. this is about you. this is about everything it took you to get to this point, everything it cost you, and everyone who laughed when you dared to dream of something big and bright. you’re here tonight because you refused to give up and refused to give in. you’re here where they all said you’d never be, and no one can say you haven’t earned the right to play this game. all eyes are on you. it’s time to show them what you’re made of. there’s no room for doubt, no room for second guesses, no room for error. this is your night. this is your game. this is your moment. seize it with everything you’ve got. pull out all the stops and lay it all on the line. fight because you don’t know how to die quietly. win because you don’t know how to lose. this king’s ruled long enough — it’s time to tear his castle down.

the bravest hero
is the one who has known loss
the one who hold the weight of the universe willingly 


the deadliest hero
is the one who dares to dream of a better world
the one who has a future they want 


the strongest hero
is the one in love
the one with a home worth dying for


the best heroes are broken
they know what it means to be bruised 
they know what it means to have blood stained hands
they know what it means to have the belief of a lover


heroes aren’t gods or blessed
if anything they are cursed the worst of all humans
they have the powers to transform the world
but it comes at the cost of everything they hold dear


you can’t name a hero who was happy for long
their burdens aren’t meant for smiles
and their bodies aren’t granted gentleness
for war runs through their veins as much as love does
