it is the best thing i own

This may be an unpopular opinion, but while I don’t think Danger Days is MCR’s best album, I think it’s the most timeless. Bullets, Revenge, and TBP are all great albums, but also undeniably influenced by/associated with the time period. Danger Days had its own influences, but it never seemed like a “product of the times.” If I didn’t know when it had been released, I probably wouldn’t be able to guess the date.

I also feel like Danger Days was ahead of its time–now EVERYONE’S doing the whole “colorful rebels in the desert” thing, but at the time it was still fresh and original. And it still stands out as a unique work, not another generic post-apocalyptic tale.

Rowaelin meeting drunk at a party

Had a few minutes so I decided to throw this short little thing together! Enjoy!

“Just one more, pleeeeeeeeease, Aelin!”
Aelin looked into her best friend’s sparkling green eyes and then to the shot of golden liquid in her hand. Lysandra had promised her she wouldn’t get too drunk tonight, but judging by the hiccup that followed her own name, Aelin knew that she was so far gone. Granted, she wasn’t too far behind her. Which is probably why she took the shot glass, licked the salt off of Lysandra’s hand and tossed the liquid back.
It burned as it slid down her throat, the familiar tingling feeling that followed and she fell back onto the couch, where the seat behind her had been empty moments before.
It wasn’t anymore.
Her back slammed into a hard wall of muscle and she yelped as a red solo cup fell to the floor, beer splattering over her shoes and the large, black combat boots next to hers.
Turning, but not getting up, she glanced over her shoulder to see another pair of green eyes looking at her, amused. A silver eyebrow was quirked and Aelin’s cheeks burned as she realized she had apparently sat on a Greek gods lap, or so her drunk mind thought.
“I’m so sorry!” She cried, covering her mouth. “I thought the seat was empty!”
“Apparently.” The smile on his lips was dangerous, especially mixed with the light accent lacing his tone, the devilish glint in his pine green eyes, and the slight slur to his words.
“I’m Aelin,” she said, her voice dropping into a husky whisper.
“Rowan,” he answered, squeezing her thigh in place of a handshake.
It was then that she realized she was still in his lap.
“I’m so sorry,” she made a move to get up. “I’ll go get you another beer.”
His grip on her tightened. “Or,” he said, his mouth close to her ear, “you could stay here. I could use the company.”
Blushing, Aelin settled in, snuggling into the pine and snow scent and enjoyed the presence of her new companion.

69# Soft Klance of the Day:  Each of them have their own ways of dealing with nightmares.
When Keith has them, he prefers silence and the comfort of touch, so they stay in silence hugging each other. Lance drawing small circles on Keith back, doing his best to remind him that Keith that isn’t alone.
When Lance has them, he can’t handle the silence. He asks Keith weird meaningless questions or Keith rambles about whatever topic comes to mind, even if it’s just talking about different ways he can polish a knife.

Drop everything now

…and go read Yellow by @13ways-of-looking 🐱🦇 I swear to God, it is one of the best works of fiction I’ve ever read (in this fandom, but not only!) I was literally up all night (lol) to finish it cause I! Just! Had! To! Know! More!!!

The characters are amazing. Perfectly built, and perfectly believable, they are people on their own, but they still have some traits in common with the real Harry and Louis. You never have the impression you’re reading fake make-believes, cause they feel like real human beings. Neither of them (and I don’t mean just Batman and the Cat) are either black or white, there are so many shades that make them complicated, stubborn, clever, thick. They’re flesh and bone characters.

And the style… the style is so brilliant. Even at the beginning of the story I was glued to the screen of my phone, not ready to let go, cause I was already so into the plot. The narration flows ever-so-fluid, you feel like you’re there with the characters living the story yourself. Also, kudos for all the literature references, the social references, and of course, the fandom ones! It’s always fun spotting them.

This is a real, beautifully crafted, masterpiece, and you all should go read it… right now!

@13ways-of-looking thank you so much for writing this, i loved it endlessly, and also a mention of honour goes to @twopoppies who made such wonderful, wonderful art for the story! 😍❤️

I know I can be very sensitive and I probably took it to heart more than I should of, I’ll do my best not to let myself be shaken up by things in the future.

@flamingexdee said Sorry to hear you’ve been getting nasty asks. Your renders are super cute, and thank you so much for taking the time to do them!

@lysxelo said This blog is awesome!Please don’t let the salty anons bring you down,mod Peach!You may have a different stye of rendering compared to mod Pupper,but styles both are amazing in their own way!Keep it up!You have my support!Also,looking at this blog and cute pics of Noct makes me happy :3 Good job,and keep your head up!

@dorkdom YOOO I JUST FOUND THIS BLOG AND CAN I SAY YOU GUYS ARE BOTH SUPER AMAZING HOLY DAMN THIS IS GREAT. 👌👌👌 I don’t 3D model (maybe one day along the road) but I have friends that do and I’ve seen second hand how long and hard it takes to make these sort of things sometimes and you BOTH are fiuhsdijfhSPDUIgh. BLESS. If I could pay you right now I would. Keep up the amazing work you guys!! God im screaming at how amazing all of these works are ❤❤❤

@princess-diaxa  Just wanted to say that I’m glad Mod Peach is back and hopefully doing better! I couldn’t help but feel bad about what happened last week, but I think both of your guys’ renders are equally the greatest, and honestly, it’s amazing how you two make these just for us fans who love Noctis to death, heh. I imagine it must be kinda tiresome and tough. I hope nothing gets ya down, Mod Peach!! You’re amazing and so is Mod Pupper. ❤ I always look forward to seeing what you two make in the future~.

I'll do the ship thing! I'm very kind and caring. Sometimes too nice for my own good. And two hobbies would be drawing and reading

I ship you with..

Your kind heart and nurturing nature appeal to Azrael greatly. He understands that such qualities are a rarity in his walk of life and he has come to appreciate a soft soul. You will read for hours in his study, answering his curious questions about your book. 

Your best friend is Muria. Like Azrael, she is rather fond of your gentler approach. She hates seeing people take advantage of it though. 

oh my god, she’s such a little shit. 

Is she a monkey too? She’s acting like one.

Flynt, baby, that wasn’t smart. Finish her off before you turn your back. Neon was handling things just fine on her own.

Oh shit.

That’s probably the best they could do. With Weiss down, I don’t think there’d be any way for Yang to get close enough to Flynt to hit him.

Oh, no. It didn’t even work. Wow.

Ship meme

Tagged by @rikerssexblouse

It’s perfectly okay to use the same ship for multiple questions~ Just fill it out as best as you can. Link your own content wherever you can!!

First Ship you ever read fic for:  I didn’t know fanfic was a thing until I was watching Voyager as it aired, and was so in love with Tom and B’Elanna that I desperately searched the internet for any mention of them. Behold! Many pages of words people have written about them! I liked The Official P/T Collective on loony archivist A LOT.

First Ship you ever wrote fic for:  Technically I didn’t write it, because it never left my own head, but I used to tell myself so many self-insert stories where I, too, was a police officer at 21 Jump Street (the TV show!) and Tom Hanson loved me so much. (This was back when liking Johnny Depp was edgy and cool, and not evidence of exceedingly poor judgement.)

Ship you write the most now: You will not be surprised to hear it is Tom and B’Elanna.

Ship you read the most now:  You will not be surprised to hear it is Tom and B’Elanna.    

Newest Ship:  ShroomDoc. The scenes in episode 5 between Hugh Culber and Paul Stamets have made me a True Believer. Absolutely adorable and I am rooting for them so hard. 

Rare Ship you wanna read more of:  Not Trek! Steve Rodgers and Sam Wilson (aka Captain American and the Falcon). I am 100% convinced they are in love with each other. And Sam is WAY better for Cap than Bucky. 

Your taboo Ship: ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

They never met in canon Ship:  Tom Paris and Lwaxana Troi. What started as a pithy response to an ask has taken over a sizable portion of my heart. 

Your unexpected ship: I’m going to go with Tom and Lwaxana again. Seeing as I think my fic about them is still the only one out there, clearly no one else was expecting them either. 

The ship you always forget to give love to:   ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Ship your OC with a canon character (if applicable): Mad Dog Maryam Paris (Tom’s grandmother) 100% hate fucked Lorca at least once. (Assuming the ages are right, I can’t keep track of these things.) 

A ship you’re embarrassed to ship: Amongst like-minded individuals? None of them. Amongst, say, my co-workers, who likely don’t even know what “shipping” is? All of them.

Your most romantic Ship: I don’t write Tom and B’Elanna particularly romantically. I don’t really seek out romance in the flowers and chocolates sense, honestly. I like witty banter, a (respectful) battle of wills, and taking care of each other type stuff. But I don’t think of that as romantic. 

Your sexiest ship: Tom and B’Elanna. Obviously.  

Your most tragic ship: B’Elanna and Chakotay, because of this fucking story that rips my heart out (in the best way possible) by @mia-cooper and because they aren’t supposed to be together but they are because they understand each other’s pain. 

A ship you want more content for: Isn’t this the same as the answer for rare ship I want to read more of? It’s definitely Cap and Falcon again, but I will always want to read more Tom and B’Elanna, so them, too. Also, if anyone wants to write more about Tom and Lwaxana, I give you my blessing as Creator the Ship. 

Tagged: I think everyone’s been tagged that I would tag. Have I tagged you in things before and you haven’t been tagged yet? Consider yourself tagged! Everyone consider themselves tagged! If you want to do this, go nuts! You don’t need my permission!

Can we please organise Bughead Bestie for everyone in the fandom looking for a BFF ❣️ Ps how do we organise this?

Awww I don’t know how to organize this. I think everyone’s friending experience is different and what works for some people doesn’t work for others. 

From my own experience…. I’ve always made my closest fandom friends by just reaching out and talking to them - reviewing their fics and messaging them etc. Then it becomes like a “we talk every day thing” and a “good night, friend. I’ll talk to you tomorrow!” with a little “did you read this fic? You should read this fic because the super dark Juggie is just your type.” and then before you know it - you’re bffs.

Go engage and talk to one another! it’s the best way to build these kind of relationships. 

Oooh and @redcirce reminded me in the replies that you could always join the Riverdale Friending Round Robin over at @riverdalefandomlove. It’s SUCH an awesome idea - and you’re bound to find a friend to chat to and squee over stuff with. <3

Hey look into fertility awareness method. There's a whole book about it called ''taking charge of your fertility'' and its about our cycles and how you can monitor it to avoid pregnancy and you wouldn't need to use anything hormonal that messes with your body. I've been using it for 2 years now and I have regular period, no weight gain and no mood swings. I was on the pill before and ditching it was the best decision for me :) But definitely do your own research!

YEAH!! i know awful things about birth control and i really don’t wanna fuck with my body that’s why i’ve been so hesitant. i’ll definitely read about this thank you for the suggestion

anonymous asked:

You're doing SHIPS!?!? Oh can I join? Okay, uh, I'm pretty darn short, my hair is also pretty darn short, it's like ear length, it's curly and brown, I'm a girl. I love loud music, gaming for hours, pranks, cuddles, and comic books. I love collecting stuff. I can play the electric violin. And jokes are 80% of my personality. Thank you!

I ship you with….

Strife. Oh boy. His love of causing mischief and gaming make you the perfect match. He’s got a thing or two to teach you on how to prank a Death, who has suddenly found himself the target of two rambunctious pests. Strife’s spontaneous hugs are matched by your own equally surprising but welcomed cuddles. You drive everyone mad, slinging jokes at each other all day long, but you can make Strife laugh like nobody else can. 

Best friends with Hunter. He’s got that appreciation for comic books and music that remind him of the good old days. He’s got a bit of a fun side too and knows all the best, classic pranks. He hordes stuff too, never know when you might need something obscure to help you survive the apocalypse. 

Another activity notice –

As many of you have heard or seen regarding “Sarah”, some of the things happening have hit really close to home. Both as a survivor and mentally ill person, and seeing it the first time around made my anxiety get to dangerous levels and now that it’s been exposed (if you don’t know about it, a post is here) and my dash is exploding again I need to probably take another step back from my dash.

The whole thing is fucked up and I extend my condolences for others that have been triggered and otherwise hurt by this whole situation. It’s fucked up and before I go on a rant of my own I just - needed to let you guys know if I’m quieter than I already said I’d be I am probaby just on Discord or trying to distract myself.

If any of you need anything you’re more than welcome to get my discord or come to my ask. Even if I’m not in the best state right now I’m more than willing to be an ear if any of you need it. We can support each other because that is what this community has shown to do and I love each and every one of you. We’re going to be okay.

October 10 is World Mental Health Day, so let’s talk about how we can end the stigma surrounding mental health 🌱

🗨 TALK🗨

Start a dialogue about your own experiences
💖 Mental Health is still stigmatized and that can make it difficult to talk about openly, but the more we talk, the more we help to normalize the discussion. But it’s not just about helping the world see Mental Health differently, but about your perception too; talking about your problems can help you work through them, and see them in a more realistic light, and it helps the people around you understand your needs.

Challenge incorrect information
💖 If you see someone spreading incorrect information about mental health, be brave and step in. Remind people that mental illnesses are disorders of the brain, and are usually due to chemical imbalances, in the same way that disorders of other organs might be due to a vitamin deficiency, or the body not being able to produce the right amount of hormones.

Ask others about their experiences
💖 Encourage others to talk about their own mental health issues, if they feel comfortable doing so.  

💭 LISTEN💭

Provide a judgement-free environment
💖 Sometimes people just need to vent, rather than have a discussion, and as well-meaning as you might be you need to respect that. Ask if they’d like to discuss their issues or if they’d just like to vent and be given a sympathetic shoulder to lean on. Mental Illness can make us hyper sensitive to perceived criticism, and feel unable to open up. Create a judgement-free environment by giving them your full attention, and by allowing people to talk at their own pace, without interruption.

Ask what they need, don’t assume
💖 What we need and what someone else needs might be two different things, so ask and listen to what someone says when they talk about their needs. It might be tempting to think “they’re just being lazy” or “if I give them a push they’ll get there eventually”, but respecting their wishes is not just about whether or not they know best. Ask them if they need their boundaries pushed, or if today is a good day to try. There will be days where they are more open to pushing their boundaries. If you force them too early you may deter them from trying again, and it may hurt their trust in you.  

💬 CHECK💬

Check in
💖 Now’s a good time to check up on the people around you. Don’t just say hello, ask how they are feeling; specifically how they feel mental-health wise. It becomes a habit to say “I’m fine”, even when you’re not, and mental illness makes it harder to be forthcoming with how we feel. Give them the option to say “well, now that you mention it…” instead of the usual small talk.

Check up
💖 Have you been ignoring your own mental health needs? Procrastinating on getting proper professional help? Now’s a good time to make an appointment with your GP for a check up!

Check yourself
💖 Even the most open-minded of us need to keep our own privilege and bias in-check. If you hear someone talk about an issue or symptom they face that you think might be exaggerated, made-up, or their own fault, consider that your own bias, privilege, or lack of understanding may be clouding your judgement. Everyone’s experiences are different, so try to remember not to compare. Have a judgement-free discussion, give advice or offer alternatives, but in the end: trust THEIR judgement of THEIR situation.

It’ll all work out in the end, I won’t leave your side

The real Taylor Swift:

April 23rd 2009-July 10th 2010: The Fearless Tour

The Fearless Tour. Taylor decided to walk through the crowds at her shows, greeting fans of all ages, genders and races because SHE wanted to meet the fans that had been supporting her and helping her reach where she is to this day. After each show, Taylor held a meet and greet called ‘The T-Party’. This was a room where fans could go to eat pizza and meet each other and get to know other people and then get to meet Taylor. Taylor would walk around stadiums and hide behind food bars and then surprise fans in the line. Each night she would walk a number of miles to meet as many people as she could.

February 9th 2011-March 18th 2012: The Speak Now Tour

Much like at the Fearless Tour, Taylor said she wanted to continue walking through the crowds during one of her songs at the Speak Now Tour. Taylor hugged as many people as she could and thanked them for coming. Sometimes Taylor would tell her security to move out of the way and to let her hug more people. Taylor continued her ‘T-Party’ meet and greet. Taylor’s team would walk to different areas of the stadium during the show and hand out free meet and greets to fans who had gone all-out; screaming and dancing the whole time and wearing bold and creative costumes/handmade posters.

September 8th 2012: Ronan

The lyrics to this song are based on a blog she read about a four-year-old boy, Ronan Thompson, who died from neuroblastoma in 2011.Taylor wrote the song by putting together quotes from blog creator Maya Thompson, Ronan’s mother. Thompson is credited as a co-writer of the song. Taylor first performed the song live for Stand Up to Cancer in September 2012, and has only performed it publicly one other time, at the Glendale, Arizona stop of The 1989 World Tour, at which Ronan’s mother was in the audience. All proceeds from sales of the single go to help fight cancer.

2014: 1989 Secret Sessions

In anticipation of the release of her album, 1989 on October 27, Taylor held a series of “1989 Secret Sessions” over the past few weeks at her various homes across America, where carefully-selected fans were told they were attending some sort of secret event, with no knowledge of what was in store for them. When fans arrived they were told to sit in a room together and wait. Taylor then jumped out and surprised them all and they all got to hear her new album before anyone else. Taylor baked cookies and other goods, fans got to meet Taylor’s cat, Olivia Benson Swift, and they danced together and each got to meet Taylor and just hang out.

May 5th 2015-December 12th 2015: The 1989 Tour

At each 1989 concert, before perfoming her song ‘clean’, Taylor gave a 3-4 minute inspirational speech, telling fans to love themselves. This is what Taylor said to the crowd of 60,000 at Hyde Park, London on June 272015: ‘There are people here from all over the world, so if you travelled to be here, thank you so much for coming. And, you know, looking out at you, thinking about the fact that we all come from different places, maybe we all have different accents, we have different hobbies, different backgrounds, whatever. But there’s one thing that we have in common that I know for sure. That thing is that when we feel a great amount of joy, or a great amount of pain, we turn to music. That’s why we’re all at Hyde Park tonight. From talking to you so much, and getting to know you, it’s never been more apparent to me how difficult it is to feel okay about yourself in 2015. Real talk. I mean, every single day we go online – and trust me, I love the internet, okay? Love it – but, every day we go online and we scroll through the highlight reel of other people’s awesome lives. But we don’t see the highlight reel of our awesome lives – all we see is the behind the scenes. We see every single moment, from when we wake up and we’re like “oh, God, not feeling my hair today. Not going to be a good day today for the hair”. We see our doubts, we see our fears, we see our concerns. You are the only one who is inside your brain feeling all of your anxieties and the voices who are telling you that you can’t be who you want to be, or that you’re not who you want to be, or that you want to be more like that other person over there. Let me tell you, people are mean to each other, but no voice is as mean as our own voices are to ourselves. Is it true or is it false? It’s true, right? Okay, so if there’s one thing that you come away from this night remembering, I want it to be this – every day when you look in the mirror, and your mind is telling you all the things you are not – if those things are that you’re not cool enough, you’re not pretty enough, you’re not popular enough, you’re not successful enough, you’re not special, you’re not wanted, you’re not unique – those are not the things you are not. Let me tell you the things you are not. Okay? You are not somebody else’s opinion. That’s what you’re not. You are not going nowhere just because you’re not where you want to be yet. You are not damaged goods just because you have made mistakes in your life. Those are the things you are not. Let me tell you the things that you are. Would you like to hear the things that you are? You are your own definition of beautiful, and worthwhile, and no one else’s definition. You are wiser, stronger, and smarter because you made mistakes in your life, not damaged. And lastly, London, England, you are someone who is probably standing here tonight going through your own battles, fighting your own ghosts, trying to cover your own scars, stressing about your own stresses. But, rather than wallowing in them, you got up, you put on an awesome outfit, and now we’re all standing here together having the best time of our lives at a concert on a Saturday night. I realise that it’s not about being perfect, it’s not about feeling perfect. I think that sometimes it’s just about getting on with things and realising that you’re happy today. That’s all that matters. I just want you to know that one thing I have learned in 25 years, and I’m still learning, is that if you get rained on, you walk through a bunch of storms, life is constantly coming at you – that doesn’t make you damaged. It makes you clean.’


May 5th 2015-December 12th 2015: The 1989 Tour (Loft 89)

At Taylor’s 1989 concerts, she held a meet and greet called ‘Loft 89′ where Taylor, again, could hang out with her fans and dance around with them. Taylor met lots of different people including children with disabilities and illnesses. Taylor made sure everyone had a great time and that everyone was included and treated equally.

Christmas 2014/2015: ‘Swiftmas’

Taylor Swift surprised 13-year-old fan Delaney Clements who was diagnosed with neuroblastoma at the age of seven. Delaney, who is a massive fan of the 26-year-old singer started a campaign to meet Taylor called #TaylorMeetDelaney and on Saturday (19th December) her wish came true. Taylor surprised the family by turning up unannounced and the afternoon was captured on Instagram and Facebook with Delaney and her Mum posting photos. Taylor became so into the idea of ‘Swiftmas’ that she also sent a number of other fans packages of merch and other little presents.

Award acceptance speeches

To any award acceptance speech, there is always something directed to Taylor’s fans. Taylor thanks her fans for everything because she knows that we are such a big part of her life and she wouldnt be where she is now without us.

A very important quote Taylor has said:

Long story short: Taylor is one of those few artists who does nothing but good for her fans and everyone around her yet she gets body shamed and name called everywhere. It really does break my heart. 

Taylor has been there for me through everything and I know that she always will be because she has never failed to make us all smile and to make us all feel better about ourselves, She has made me feel loved and wanted and she has introduced me to some of my bestest friends ever. To me, Taylor Swift is not just an artist, she’s my best friend.
