it is indeed a good day

Ah, Mistral. I’ve been excited to see it properly since that first glimpse at the end of volume 4…

Nora said their destination is “up,” so that probably means the giant palace perched between the two mountain peaks is indeed Haven Academy. Seriously… One good earthquake and that place is done for. Freakin’ architects goin’ for style points…

Still images they may be, it was cool to see the crowds in the streets below. It’s a testament to their character design team that this art style looks good in both 2D and 3D.

Mistral is the world’s biggest and most expressive hub of art, music, and culture, and the costume design here is on point!

So there’s a new film out starring Christian Bale and Oscar Isaac which is amazing in and of itself, since they’re phenomenal actors. They’re in the film called The Promise, a film that depicts the Ottoman Empire and the Armenian Genocide. 

To this day, the genocide is still actively denied by the Turkish government when it did indeed occur. Because of this, the film has a really low rating as people are actively trying to get people to not know the truth of that the genocide occurred. I am not Armenian but my people (Assyrians) were killed, as well as Greeks during this time.

Please go see the film, if you can. Its really important to many of us considering denial has a huge effect on inter-generational communities. Plus it looks like its going to be good.

Look what I saw on Facebook today! Congrats!

Y’ALL W H AT IS HAPPENING I CAME HOME TO THE REBLOG FROM A SECOND AGO AND I WAS OVER THE MOON ENOUGH THEN I SEE THIS THEN I LOOK AT MY FOLLOWER COUNT I THINK 400 PEOPLE HAVE FOLLOWED ME SINCE I WENT TO WORK THIS MORNING?? SO LIKE HELLO I’M CONFUSED NICE TO MEET YOU THIS IS AMAZING

if anyone is looking for a job, jobalign.com is a pretty good site. some of the postings on there show the expected salary, what time and days you’d be working, how many applicants are needed, etc. it’s not as crowded as indeed or monster. these are kinda straight to the point and the pay is higher than minimum wage.

Hiroko Katsuki is good mom. Hiroko Katsuki is best mom. 

But let’s talk about Toshiya for a second?

Let’s talk about Toshiya Katsuki who never told his son that it’s not okay to cry. 

Toshiya Katsuki, who is literally never not smiling, even though life can’t be easy for the patriarch of a family who owns an inn in a rapidly-declining tourist town.

Toshiya Katsuki, who gets silly drunk and draws a face on his belly and makes his wife giggle like a schoolgirl. 

I think there was a point in Toshiya’s life when he realized that neither of his children were going to follow their prescribed roles–Yuuri was not going to take over the inn after his parents got old, and Mari was not going to get married and have children–and indeed that they were switching those roles completely around. Mari is a pragmatist, and good with her hands. She wants to live as quiet and comfortable a life as possible. Yuuri is a romantic. He spends his days with music following him everywhere he goes–with a song in his head and his heart on his sleeve and sometimes that heart breaks.

There was a point in Toshiya’s life when he was faced with his son weeping, just completely losing it over something seemingly inconsequential, and he sat down and held him and told him it was all going to be alright. No bootstrapping, no belittling. Just love. 

There was a point in Toshiya’s life when he was faced with his daughter, stoney-faced and stiff upper lipped. Hurting so much that he could feel it in his own bones, but unwilling to show it. And Toshiya sat with her all night and waited to see if she would talk about it. He didn’t force her to talk about it, or tell her to go talk to her mother. He waited. 

There is a time in Toshiya’s life when he meets a young man who loves his son so much that it is almost visible. A young man he has practically watched grow up, through television screens and on the pages of magazines. A young man he welcomes into his family as easy as taking a breath because Yuuri loves him, and because he needs a family. 

And when that young man comes to him and says How, please, tell me how I show him that he’s everything, Toshiya can only tell him to keep doing what he’s doing. Because Yuuri is a romantic.

There comes a time in Toshiya Katsuki’s life when he is sending his son to Russia, to live with the man he now calls his fiance, and he thinks of the baby he held, and the toddler whose bruises he kissed, and the boy whose heart he saw broken time and time again. And he looks at the man in front of him and knows that his son’s heart is safe.

“I won’t say be careful with him,” Toshiya says to Viktor then. “Because I know you will. So I’ll say…you have my blessing. For whatever comes next. And always remember that you have a home here, in Japan. Both of you.”

And Viktor? Viktor is somewhere in the middle of Yuuri and Mari. He is both emotional and cold at intervals. But Toshiya is confident that he has the tools to be a good father to him, too. 

that “which teammate would make the best president?” video reminded me of this picture

let’s not forget about President Holiday, her VP Rodriguez and the rest of her cabinet. The USA goverment the world really needs and deserve

Once there was a man named Mr. Paddiwak. Mr. Paddiwak worked at a bank, and he was a very good banker indeed.

One day, a frog hopped into the bank and right up on to Mr. Paddiwak’s desk.

“Hello!” the frog said cheerfully “I’m here to take out a loan, the woman on the desk said you could help me?”

Mr. Paddiwak frowned a little, and then said

“Well, perhaps I might be able to help. Do you have anything to offer for collateral?”

The frog nodded and offered up a paperweight in the shape of an elephant.

“Will this do?” He asked, and Mr. Paddiwak frowned again

“I’m not sure. It’s certainly…unusual. Let me ask my manager” and Mr. Paddiwak excused himself to speak to his manager

“Excuse me sir” Mr. Paddiwack said knocking on his manager’s door “I have a frog here who wants to take out a loan, but all he has to offer up for collateral is this elephant shaped paperweight. Does that qualify?“

The manage looked up at Mr. Paddiwak and said gruffly

"It’s a knick-knack, Paddiwak! Give the frog a loan!”

Cop Explains How It Feels To Live Every Day In Fear Someone Might Record You Brutalizing A Civilian

Like any good sarcasm this holds a great deal of truth. This actually does sound like shit that cops would say as evidenced by the recent “blue racism” video out of NYPD.

I remind you that it was posted by Onion. At the same time, it perfectly illustrates the position of the US police. Indeed, the only thing that bothers them is the fact that a video of police brutality can go viral. The actor says that it can ruin the career of a cop, in reality it is hardly possible. I mean most cops stay on duty and even get promoted after their violent behavior was spread on the Internet.

#PoliceBrutality #Cops 

alright so 

Kubo-sensei has, in my eyes, now confirmed that Viktor and Yuuri are indeed lovers/significant others

IT’S NOT LIKE IM SURPRISED AFTER SEEING THEM LOOK AT EACH OTHER LIKE THIS AMONGST A THOUSAND OTHER THINGS 

but I know that some people still had doubts or wanted an official confirmation so wELL HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY EVERYONE I GUESS IT’S AS CANON AS IT GETS NOW

If you need me I’ll be over here screaming into my pillow over these two 

their love is too good to be true I owe Kubo-sensei my life

One half of the Fandom: Sangwoo is gonna beat him up badly when they get home!
The other half of the Fandom: Sangwoo and Bum are gonna have sex when they get home!

Koogi: why not both ;)

EDIT.

*sighs*

This post does not imply that what happened is not rape.
I believe the scene in last chapter was very much rape and I totally condemn it.
In this post I use the term ‘sex’ because till before the chapter was released, some people thought it’d be rape, some people thought it would be consensual.
The word 'sex’ doesn’t necessarily imply whether it is consensual or not: most of the time it implies it, but it’s not inherently sealed in the word 'sex’.

By “both” I mean that the scenario that was presented in last chapter can be considered a mix of both parties: it was sex, but performed as a beating up (that is, something the victim wouldn’t want). What I meant by 'both’ was, indeed, RAPE.

Finally, the emoji I put near Koogi’s line does NOT imply that I have any sympathy for what happened. I imagined her winking because she usually ends up taking a path that mixes a lot of the fans’ opinions together without quite being anything any fan had imagined in detail. I find it funny when it happens.

I hope this will clear it up once for all.
Have a good day!

Ignorance in Astrology

So, in astrology, it is common to find many people doing and saying ignorant things. Astrology is an Aquarian practice, so therefore, it is frequently misunderstood and perhaps ridiculed by others. I’m going to list a few uneducated arguments and combat it with some information. Hopefully this post can help you challenge what you know and how you currently view astrology.

  • “I hate this sign! I hate that sign!” This statement is pretty ignorant for several reasons:
    • Unless you have an interception in this certain sign, you actually have this sign ruling a House somewhere in your natal chart. So technically, you’re hating yourself if you hate a sign.
    • Most people base their hate on Sun signs. Astrology is much more than just your Sun sign… The person’s sun sign may not even be what you hate about the person! This also doesn’t really justify people hating signs in other planets either, because hating a sign in any way shows the ignorance you have in accepting the positive and negative qualities a sign can have. At the end of the day, it will always be wrong to incorrectly place bias on something that is inherently neutral.
  • “I don’t relate to my sign at all.” Well, good news for you. You are more than just one sign. You actually have a lot of planets, houses, and aspects that can describe you, even though your Sun sign is still very important.
  • “Astrology is too general! These descriptions can apply to everyone.” Of course the descriptions you find online are general and can be applicable to everyone. It doesn’t make practical sense to make a pinpoint, specific description for you unless you pay an astrologer to do it. The astrological descriptions are catered to everyone, and with that in mind, the descriptions are made to describe a placement purely and accurately. However, you are a mix of descriptions, and it’s up to you to synthesize those descriptions accurately and use astrology to find yourself. Also, the more general descriptions you gather, the more specific your chart will be. How many people in the world do you think would have the same exact number and types of astrological descriptions as you? Astrology is only too general if you don’t know how to use it.
  • “The horoscopes in the magazine aren’t accurate so therefore, astrology isn’t accurate.” Do you really think a serious, educated astrologer would write horoscopes for a magazine? For the record, for any horoscope, you use your Rising sign, not your Sun sign. If you want things to be even more accurate, go get a predictive transit reading from an astrologer.
  • “Astrology is tied to the occult! It’s evil and demonic!” The occult is technically defined to be something supernatural or magical. There is nothing magical or supernatural about astrology, for the basis of it is to observe people’s everyday, normal behavior to see how it correlates with their birth charts. There is nothing evil about observing someone’s behavior, and trying to make sense of it. There are many sciences that actually do this.
  • “I don’t believe in astrology because of my religion.” Astrology, first of all, is something you don’t believe in. Astrology is something you observe with. You don’t believe in astrology, you work and observe with astrology. You don’t need to observe something to believe in it. It is entirely possible to believe in a certain religion and practice astrology at the same time.
  • “There’s thirteen signs instead of twelve signs.” No, there isn’t thirteen signs. Ophiuchus is not a sign. The astrology that everybody knows of, tropical astrology uses astrology based off the seasons, and not the constellations. Therefore, Ophiuchus is not a sign. There are twelve signs for many symbolic reasons, and it would make no sense to add an extra sign. Which planet would Ophiuchus would rule? What kind of expressions would Ophiuchus have? How would Ophiuchus connect to the other signs?
  • “Astrology has been disproven by science, so therefore, it is not true.” There are many things science isn’t able to prove. Science is a constantly changing and dynamic subject. There are so many things we as humans do not know. It is completely arrogant to say something isn’t true because your way of understanding the world (which is essentially science) isn’t able to prove the workings of astrology. Scientists who have “disproven” astrology, do not know astrology themselves. It is impossible to disprove something you don’t know. Astrology does not have to be invalidated by science. We can’t just properly invalidate something we don’t fully understand.
  • “Astrology can’t predict my future.” Astrology was never meant to predict the future. Astrology is not an occult subject, so therefore, it doesn’t deal with supernatural subjects unless someone ties it into their own occult practices. Astrology as a subject has never claimed to predict the future, but to only point to several possibilities instead of an infinity. Astrology never promises a single, specific answer. There’s no way to get a specific answer when we tie in circumstances and time. Life is too dynamic to predict the future and when people start to panic and become fatalistic about their futures, they really forget the beauty of unpredictability.
  • “12 signs can’t define 7+ billion people.” The problem with this statement is that astrology defines people not with “just 12 signs” but with planets, aspects, signs, rulerships, and so much more. All of this is located in your natal chart. It is an assumption to think that astrology would generalize the world population to just 12 “personality types.” The signs aren’t even “personality types” to begin with, they are expressions, which can be applied to other planets, which will then give you a better picture of who you are. By the way, there are more combinations of natal charts than people currently living in the world right now. There’s actually 9,039,935,178,448 combinations if you leave out a bunch of variables. You can find the calculations here.
  • “Astrology is an outdated practice, so therefore, it’s not accurate.” Astrology was started by the Babylonians. The Greeks and Romans, ancient civilizations that people constantly look up to even today, practiced astrology. Science was also heavily used by the Greeks and Romans, which was a long time ago, so shouldn’t science be invalidated also with the logic of that argument?
  • “Isn’t astrology always going to be biased because humans are biased?” Humans are indeed biased, but astrology is inherently neutral. Astrology is only as good as the astrologer, because at the end of the day, the quality of astrology depends on those who practice it. That’s why it is essential to open your mind and gather your thoughts from other people to get a better picture. It is so important to not base astrological facts on your own experiences, but to take into account of other people’s. Humans, due to their unique natal charts will be biased, but this does not mean that being ultimately close-minded is the end result.

Of course, these are not all of the statements that can be argued against astrology. There are many more arguments, and you are completely welcome to add to this post.

austen meme ⇾ confessions ⇾ wentworth’s letter to anne

i offer myself to you again with a heart even more your own than when you almost broke it, eight years and a half ago. dare not say that man forgets sooner than woman, that his love has an earlier death. i have loved none but you. unjust i may have been, weak and resentful i have been, but never inconstant. you alone have brought me to bath. for you alone, i think and plan. have you not seen this? can you fail to have understood my wishes? i had not waited even these ten days, could i have read your feelings, as i think you must have penetrated mine. i can hardly write. i am every instant hearing something which overpowers me. you sink your voice, but i can distinguish the tones of that voice when they would be lost on others. too good, too excellent creature! you do us justice, indeed. you do believe that there is true attachment and constancy among men. believe it to be most fervent, most undeviating, in f. w.

i must go, uncertain of my fate; but i shall return hither, or follow your party, as soon as possible. a word, a look, will be enough to decide whether i enter your father’s house this evening or never.

Fairy Tail Chapter 527: August Was Really a...

Okay, okay, so the latest chapter of Fairy Tail has just been released, and there’s been an uproar over it.  Mostly around the fact that August just disappeared.

Okay, from what we know, August is the strongest Spriggan of the Alvarez Empire, and the child of Zeref and Mavis.  As such, he’s suppose to hold immense power.  And in this latest chapter, he we about to destroy Magnolia, but was stopped when he saw Mavis.  The moment he saw Mavis, he disappeared.

Now, this made me stop and think about why that would happened.  I doubt it was just a “Get Out of Plot Free” card.

In fact, I have reason to believe that it isn’t.

It was after I finished the chapter that I remembered something.  Something that August himself had stated shortly after Larcade was introduced, and we all assumed that he was Zeref and Mavis’s child.

Now, we all assumed at the time when Mashima made us believe that Larcade was Zeref and Mavis’s child that Mavis would have to face off against Arcade at some point.

However, we thought it was going to be a fight, or an act of love that would calm Larcade down.  That is until we discovered that Larcade was actually one of Zeref’s Demons, and was destroyed by his creator.

When the truth of August came out, we assumed that Mavis and August would face off, or Mavis would show August love to calm him down.

However, that was not the case in this chapter.

August was defeated by Mavis, but here is where I believe that it is not a “Get Out of Plot Free” card that Mavis defeated August just by looking at him.  There’s something else going on right here.

When August was about to make Magnolia disappear, Mavis looked up to see what was causing this disaster.

She looked up and saw August.  And the moment she did, August stopped.  Look at the second to last panel.

Now look at the very next page.

August sees that Mavis is looking at him.  She sees him.  She’s aware of him.  The moment he started disappearing was when she saw him.

Now why is this important?

To answer that question, we need to remember this character:

That’s right.  Zera from “Fairy Tail Zero”.

Now, why do we need to remember Zera?  Well, I’ll tell you, because she’s very important right now.

Or rather, we need to remember what Zera was.

As revealed at the end of Fairy Tail Zero, the Zera that we knew going on the adventures with Mavis was an illusion that Mavis’s subconscious created.  The real Zera died during Blue Skull’s raid on Red Lizard, but Mavis’s subconscious conjured up an illusion of Zera that only she could see and hear.

Now, normally, Mavis’s illusions could not be touched when she conjured them up consciously.

Zera was a special illusion in that Mavis could see, hear and she could touch, because she was created from Mavis’s subconscious.

Now, what does all this have to do with August?  Well, I’ll tell you.

Remember that Zera couldn’t remain with Mavis after she had discovered that she was an illusion she had created?  Well, the moment that happened, Zera disappeared.

The moment Mavis saw August up in the sky, he disappeared.  And as she was making her way to the guild hall again, he appeared behind her as a little boy, only to disappear again as she turned around.

I have reason to believe that August is actually an illusion conjured up by Mavis’s subconscious.

There are several things I can point to that would support this theory: August having memories of his mother and father even as a baby, being smart for his age, and even being born with a lot of Magic Power.  All of that does not sound like a typical wizard in the Fairy Tail series.  I understand that Mavis and Zeref are powerful, but I don’t think even an offspring of their’s (if they did have one) would have the same traits listed above that August does.

Very suspicious.

Of course, you could say that this poetic license.  A little something to give intrigue to the character.

But the biggest piece of evidence to support the theory that August is an illusion is none other than Zeref himself, and here’s why.

For one, he himself claimed that he has no children.  August never told him when they met, so Zeref doesn’t know that August is his child.

He also said this with certainty.

This also tells me something else.

Zeref says that he has no children, and from what we saw with Mavis and Zeref’s first kiss, is that that’s all they did.  They just kissed, nothing more.  They couldn’t have had any further relation with each other because Mavis died the moment they kissed.

And from what we’ve seen, Mavis is unaware of August up until the moment she see him.  That was their first and only interaction.

But here’s the biggest piece of evidence.

Zeref’s Curse kills anything that touches him or comes close to him.

Everything except ILLUSIONS that is.  Illusions are immune to Zeref’s Curse.

And the proof is right in Fairy Tail Zero.

Now the reason that Zeref couldn’t touch these illusions is because they were consciously created by Mavis.

However, as seen with Zera, she could be touched because she was a subconscious illusion.

What does this have to do with August?

This panel is the final piece of evidence.

Zeref and August are holding hands, and Zeref’s Curse has no effect on August whatsoever.  And August could walk close to Zeref and not be effected by his Curse.  AND this is all before Zeref had gained control over his Curse of Contradictory.

If August was flesh and blood, regardless of how powerful he was, Zeref’s Curse would’ve killed him instantly.  Or at the very least, Zeref would’ve told him to stay away from him.

But neither happened to him.  He was able to get close to Zeref and not succumb to his Curse.

Only illusions are immune to Zeref’s Curse.

Which is why I believe that August is actually an illusion that Mavis’s subconscious conjured up.

This is why only Mavis could defeat him.  He was an illusion created from her subconscious, and she had to become aware of him in order for him to disappear.  Just like with Zera.

At least, that’s what I theorize.

We’ll just have to wait and see if this is indeed the case.

Have a Good Day, Everyone!  :D
