2/100 Days of Productivity

4.5.16

Today was majorly productive - I’m still a bit behind but I got so much done! The book in the middle “the Cold War” is one I’ve been reading on the train the past few days to try and expand my knowledge for history, but in a more novelised way because I find I take in information from books and textbooks differently. I also managed to finish f my ecologist notes as well as type up some history work and convert them all to pdf’s to print (Never let pdf converting build up - I had over forty files to convert) Also during the day I managed to cram in planning a history source question and a Ecologism question to consolidate some of my knowledge. Late tonight I think I’m going to do some more economics and maybe start writing my history questions and I’m super looking forwards to tomorrow because it’s Starbucks Thursday’s!! :)

how to create aesthetic graphics

(a tutorial by rihleymatthews) 

so, many people requested me a tutorial on these (x and x) graphics, and since they are not hard at all to create, i decided to try explaining to you guys how they come to life. 

WARNING: this is a long and detailed tutorial. Please keep in mind I tried to show all the tricks I normally use for these graphics, so some steps are optional or extra.

you’ll need: 

  • basic to medium photoshop knowledge (such as cropping, blending and shadowing)
  • a concept (a tv show, a character, something you can pick objects to represent them or their porsonality)
  • patience, a lot of patience.

how to learn from university courses for free

this one goes out to all my avid learners out there. 

(this post is just meant for people who want to learn a course for fun, not for a certificate or anything. this method is just if you’re in high school, taking a gap year, out of school, etc. and you want to learn things for fun.)

many professors/teachers upload their course materials online for the public. this is just a way to find them. it is not illegal in any way, you’re literally just searching up course material. the reason why it looks so complicated is because these files are hard to find.


step 1: google “(insert topic) ppt”, “(insert topic), pdf”

(or any other file type you can think of). this is a way to search the web for university lecture notes, assignments, etc. i typically search for “ppt” because i like finding lecture notes.

here, i searched “political science ppt”. i’m still in high school, but i’m eager to learn about canadian politics!!

anyways, when you search this a bunch of links similar to these will come up, most of them being from universities or high schools:

step 2: find a link with the format “www.(college/university).com/(professor name)/blahblah”

these links are the ones you want to use, since they are most likely the links to actual university courses

here’s the format (the blacked out part is the professor’s name):

now here’s the important part. highlight the first part of the link. “www.(college/university).com/(professor name)/” is all you should highlight!! like this:

step 3: copy and paste the link in a new tab

once you do this, you’ll most likely see a page with links to files, folders, etc. this is the file index for a university professor (where they keep all of their course material links). like this:

from these links, you can explore lecture notes, class assignments, readings, and sometimes even past exams!


there you go, guys! that’s how to use university course material without actually taking the course. again, you do not receive any credit for ‘taking’ this course. like no certificates, no transfer credits, nothing. this is simply just a way to gain extra knowledge of things that you’re interested in. for me, this was political science. i also used this method to learn about canadian economics, spanish, and global history.

hope you enjoy! happy learning!

Finally found a decent SD among the fakes (we’ll call him Liberal Trump, because he’s a hotel mogul or some shit). We went on a celebratory trip to Las Vegas and Denver for my 20th birthday. LT has the cutest little plane and he’s a damn good pilot! Four days together had me realizing he’s still caught up on his former SB aka the girl he was giving 10K to for 11 months until his wife found out and filed for divorce aka the girl he caught feelings for who dipped when his wife EMAILED her. He’s kind of naive and pathetic at times, but it’s hard to find a liberal-minded, (mostly) down-to-earth SD these days. He’s a sweetie at least and took me out to all these bougie ass restaurants and a shopping trip before christmas - not to mention our haul from the dispensary. Plus $1000 for allowance, although we haven’t talked about increasing yet, which I need because I am drowning in bills and debt. Surprise!

He’s supposedly hearing from his former SB (they’re on a break) sometime next month. I’m guessing girl isn’t about it anymore so maybe LT could be my first longer-term arrangement. Plus he’s young, jacked, and intelligent so I really don’t mind being out with him. I feel like I’m finally advancing for the first time in my year of sugaring. ✨

Holt Family Reunion (because I have a lot of feelings)

When they finally find Pidge’s family it’s very heartwarming and it honestly makes everyone feel so much better? Like they get to actually see how Voltron is helping the universe and each of them kinda files that memory away as something that will get them through the hard time. It’s messy full of tears and laughter because one of the first things her dad says is “am I seeing double, why are there two matts? Wait, katie? KATIE? Oh my god katie” and then they just all collapse in a pile of hugs and tears. It takes them almost twenty minutes to stop crying and over an hour to separate from their hug on the floor. This mission resulted in a lot of aliens being rescued and most of them were injured in some way, but because there were so many aliens they couldn’t put them all in the healing pods. But almost all the aliens who saw the reunion insist on allowing matt and sam to go first so they can be strong enough to be with pidge. So the first set of healing pods contains pidge’s family. During this time, the remaining aliens and paladins try to organize how they will get everyone home. Some aliens planets have been destroyed and allura updates them on what planets have been rescued. Then they start talking about the people in the pods about where they come from, other aliens tell the home planets of the ones currently healing. But then they get to matt and sam holt. Allura says, oh earth okay, they’ll need their own pod because no one is near them. And pidge is like. What? You want to send them home in a pod? A POD?!? Hell no, I am taking them home Myself, you are not just sending them in a pod. And allura is like, “be rational, voltron is needed you can’t just take time off from being a paladin”. And pidge just Snaps. They’re like “What?! How dare you! You of all people should know! I have MY family back just because you can’t get yours doesn’t mean you will stop me from reuniting mine. My mom thinks all of us are Dead!!” “please pidge calm down” “NO I WILL NOT CALM DOWN, and if you don’t swear that you will open up a wormhole for me and the green lion to take my family back to earth, I will destroy this entire castle with the touch of a button. You think I won’t do it? I am doing you a FAVOR by promising to come back, if you try stop me, I will ruin you forever.” Allura looks over at the other paladins, like a little help here, but the Pidge Protection Squad is out in full force, and all she gets are hard stares. She agrees to send the green lion to earth, but when she says she’s doubling the patrols of the other paladins everyone else is like ??? no???? We’re going back to Earth. We don’t know what the hell the garrison told our families, but they most likely think we are dead, THEY THINK WE ARE DEAD. We are going and seeing them and there’s nothing you can do to stop us. Finally Allura turns to Coran like, help me please. And he just calmly takes her to the side and says, “I know what you’re just trying to do what is best, and you are not the bad guy in this situation, but it would be best to let them see their families one last time. You know as well as I do that they could die up here. You know we would have given anything to say goodbye to Altea, at least they have the chance to say goodbye to Earth.” Finally Allura gives in and says, okay you’ll all go in the green lion because it has the cloaking device and is the smallest, I’ll keep the castle near your moon so it stays hidden. Now first they go to the Holt family’s house because duh, out of everyone they deserve to be reunited first. But when they get there, there’s no sign of Mama Holt? And the house is a mess? Like someone went through it? And all the electronics are missing? What the heck, where is mom? Their neighbor almost has a heart attack when they see Katie, why is she here, didn’t she know? The neighbor very shakily tells them that their mother was arrested for treason. Apparently she had been caught sneaking around on a military base of some kind. Pidge has to be physically restrained to stop them from killing the neighbor yelling that they were a liar. When she finally calms down, they thank the neighbor and go back to the green lion, contacting allura… “we need Voltron”. On the way back to the castle pidge can’t stop talking, they keep saying “She knew, she knew something was wrong, she knew the garrison was lying but she didn’t want to believe me, why does she believe me now, why did she do that. Iverson didn’t arrest me because he would then have to admit that a little girl managed to hack in, but mom, mom is an adult, she could be executed, oh my god, what if she’s dead, what if she’s dead! How, I just, I just got my family back, how can they do this. We are going to obliterate the garrison, I don’t care if you think that’s excessive. They are corrupt and lying and dicks (language) I DON’T GIVE A RATS ASS ABOUT LANGUAGE SHIRO I WILL CUT YOU” Finally they get back to the castle and everyone gets their lions, it’s show time.

It was a normal day at this government facility, hidden, calm, no one was expecting a HUGE FREAKING ROBOT WITH A SWORD TO DROP FROM THE SKY AND TEAR OFF THE ROOF SCREAMING GIVE ME MRS. HOLT OR WE WILL DESTROY YOU. Everyone is frozen in fear, what the actual crap, someone finally snaps out of it when the robot throws some of the roof a mile down the road. Everyone is frantically looking for a Mrs. Holt, who the hell is Mrs. Holt where is she SOMEONE FIND HER IMMEDIATELY! But they are too late. The sword rips through the guard shack in it’s search to find Mrs. Holt. Suddenly, a middle age woman, wearing ripped prison clothes, stands up on the rubble and says “Katie? Katie is that you?” The paladins are ripped apart by the storms of emotions that come from the green lion. Everyone is crying and they can hear the Holts just saying mom over and over again. One second they’re voltron the next, the green lion is on the ground near her and three people are tumbling out of the mouth, running to meet Mama Holt. “Oh my god, my baby, my beautiful baby, you’re alive, you’re alive I knew they were lying, I’m so sorry, I thought I’d never see you again–oh my god Sam?! Matt! OH MYGOD YOU’RE ALIVE, YOU’RE ALIVE. Don’t you ever leave me again, I love you so much, where have you been, you’re alive, you’re alive, am I dreaming, oh my god” The other lions start to fly to other sides of the world, the yellow one goes to Hawaii, the black one heads to japan, the blue one starts to head to cuba when he realizes that the red one, is just staying there. Red and Blue head to Cuba together.

Each reunion is filled with screams and tears and hugs. Almost everyone doesn’t believe the paladins story, until they show the lions and the bayards. For the first time in what feels like years, they get to eat real food: manapua, saimin, nachos, yuca fingers, sushi, PIZZA, spam, rice. A shock comes to them a few hours later when Allura calls to them and says, Okay, get ready to say goodbye. Almost immediately she has 4 very angry mothers yelling at her over the coms “I JUST GOT THEM BACK -what? You want them back? I HAVENT SEEN MY SON IN OVER A YEAR - auwe, no. you one lolo if you think I’m gonna let him leave, half of the family is still stuck in traffic trying to get here! No, a’ole pilikia no no - bsolutely not! Showing up here with a lion and a boyfriend (he’s not my boyfriend) be quiet lance, I am talking . I swear you go to space and now you have no manners, no he is staying here for at least a few days - Have you even been feeding them? They are so skinny. (we have to eat this weird green goo) YOU’VE BEEN FEEDING MY FAMILY GOO? WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU-why don’t you come down here and try rip my child from my cold dead hands, I don’t care if she can throw shiro who’s shiro- SHE THREW MY BABY? NOPE I DON’T CARE IF YOU ARE A GROWN MAN, YOU ARE NOT LEAVING, YOU ARE GROUNDED MISTER, DO YOU UNDERSTAND!-” this goes on for almost 20 minutes of different moms and dads and uncles and aunties yelling over one another about how they need at least a few days with their family. Finally allura and coran agree to 4 days on earth as long as the paladins are always ready to leave immediately if there is a distress call and Allura and Coran get to spend a day with each family.

Lance and Hunk almost immediately volunteer to bring the alteans down from the castle… it is very suspicious. However when they show up a few hours later with their lions full of nonperishable earth food it makes sense. No seriously, Hunk brought almost 70 pounds of rice with him and like 100 cans of spam and Lance brought almost every spice you could think of, their families were horrified when they realized they had had the same exact thing for almost every meal for months. All the paladins make frequent trips up to the castle, to bring family members to see it and to bring more food and clothes. They don’t know how long they’ll be paladins, but there is no way in hell they are leaving without some very essential items this time. Like their super soft blanket, another pair of shoes, a bucket filled with face cream, pictures of their family. In fact, by the second day, almost everyone has moved their entire room up into the castle. It’s like moving in for college, with the parents helping to decorate their child’s room and making sure they have everything. All this time pidge is working almost non stop to try create at least 4 long range communicators so the paladins can keep in touch with their family because she refuses to let them believe they are dead again. Shiro is enjoying tea with his mother and for the first time in a long time actually feels relaxed. Keith on the other hand is kinda overwhelmed by how many people there are in Lance’s house, but now he understands why Lance is loud and uncomfortable with the silence of space. Also Keith might fall in love with Mama Lance’s hugs, he’s never felt this warm and loved. Lance is so happy that he cries, multiple times, and is almost always in the middle of group hugs, and he easily falls back into the role of brother, uncle, and mama’s boy, he never wants to leave. Hunk spends almost all the time at the beach with his family. The sand beneath his feet, the tradewinds playing with his hair, the salty breeze, the sun warm on his skin, and the soothing sounds of a improv jam sesh with his uncles is everything he’s wanted.

The alteans are very surprised at how different each paladins’ family is. Hunk’s is large but relaxed. Shiro’s is small and peaceful. Lance’s is loud and chaotic. Pidge’s is quiet and silly. But the one thing that each family has is it exudes love and caring and accepting of the alteans.

Nothing is harder than the last day when everyone has to say goodbye. Allura and Coran go up to the castle first, giving the paladins their privacy. It hurts because everyone over age 13 knows that this might be the last time they see their family member. The parents hold onto their children softly crying because they are just kids, why do they have to fight in a war. Keith goes back next, visiting his desert home to pack everything up with him… and also possibly breaking into the garrison to steal back the stuff from Lance, pidge, and Hunk’s old room. His lion is actually filled by the time he’s flying up to the castle. Lance’s family insisted on giving him tons of food. Shiro heads back next. He and his mom go to a temple to pray and there is a tearful goodbye, especially when she says she is proud of him. His lion is filled with rice, seaweed, tea, noodles, fresh vegetables, plus small sprouts so he can grow them on the ship, and some family heirlooms his mom insisted on him taking to keep him safe. Pidge goes next, they managed to make a device that will allow the paladins to keep in touch with their family as long as they are in a nearby galaxy, it isn’t perfect, but it’s better than nothing. The last hug is long and warm and when pidge goes into their lion she let’s out a half sob because it’s filled to the brim with peanut butter and spare electrical parts. They have to stop themselves from running back out to her family. They make quick pit stops to each of the paladins families giving them the communicators and instructions on how to use them. The sleepless nights were totally worth it when all the parents give her thankful hugs with tears in their eyes. Hunk and Lance leave at the same time, they both know that if they don’t go together, neither of them will leave. Hunk’s last day is a huge luau with his entire extended family, most of his old classmates, and the whole neighborhood. His lion is filled with all the leftovers, more rice and spam, tons of fresh and dried fruits, and an 8 string ukulele so he can have the sound of home with him. His whole family sings Aloha ‘Oe to him as he walks into his lion and he cries freely. Lance’s spends his last day hugging every family member as much as possible. He takes tons of selfies with everyone, including all the pets. He has a long talk with his war vet grandpa about how he’s scared of not being good enough, but is reassured when his badass of grandpa says he was the same way. It’s a tearful goodbye and everyone hugs Blue together as he walks in. His lion is filled with tons of family pictures, a disk with a video from each family member and of course hella food and spices. He’s able to fly off with a smile on his face because he knows his family won’t forget him and he won’t forget his family.

Bonus: When they all get back to the castle they realize that the food storage room can’t fit all the food they have and have to clear out one of the extra bedrooms to store the food there. They literally have enough food for years. And everyone realizes how much they needed this. The things that were holding them back from fully devoting themselves to Voltron had been solved and the alteans now understand the paladins so much more.


Bonus Bonus: It was at this time that the alteans realize how freaking young the paladins are because now pidge has set up a clock/calendar that is synced up to earth time. Each of them say when their birthdays are so they can celebrate and Allura almost faints when pidge says their 16th birthday is coming up. Like what is this infant doing here what. This leads to a very interesting conversation where they realize that Shiro is still considered a baby by altean standards. Coran has to sit down when they explain that the oldest human to ever live only lived to 128 years, which is still child years for alteans.

chameleon // the x-files // fox mulder/dana scully // au with william and emily // fluff 

summary: 
“Hard day at the office?” he teases, and she laughs and sheds her coat and sheds her work persona she wears like a second skin. At work she is Dr. Scully, sometimes Dana, at work she is charts and lines and order and precision. 

“Fox come oooon, Mommy hasn’t seen it yet!” 

At home she is Mom, and that name fits her better than any other title has. 


She doesn’t expect to find what she does. 

It’s like walking into a crime scene, clothes and shoes and jewelry strewn everywhere. Down the hall. On the dresser. Even on the back of the couch— 

Wasn’t Mulder supposed to be watching them? 

She tells herself she can reprimand him later because all she hears now is the sound of giggling coming from down the hallway and a loud whisper of “shh I think Mommy’s coming.” 

She shakes her head, allows a smile to creep across her face. 

Mulder steps out of their bedroom, hair mussed, wearing the New York Knicks t-shirt she’d slept in the night before. 

“Hey, uh, you can’t come in yet,” he says, grinning ear to ear. 

She bends down, slips her heels off so she only comes up to his chest. Here is where she feels safe. Warm. 

“Why not?” she asks, doctor voice still on. 

“Because it isn’t ready yet,” he says. 

This is the Mulder she loves, cryptic and mysterious and playful even when he’s talking about their children. 

“Hard day at the office?” he teases, and she laughs and sheds her coat and sheds her work persona she wears like a second skin. At work she is Dr. Scully, sometimes Dana, at work she is charts and lines and order and precision. 

“Fox come oooon, Mommy hasn’t seen it yet!” 

At home she is Mom, and that name fits her better than any other title has. 

Mulder chuckles and kisses her on the forehead, laughs as she stands on tiptoe to kiss him. He tucks a strand of that blazing orange hair behind her ear, takes her hand, and guides her into the bedroom. 

William and Emily proudly stand in front of the bed, William on the dresser so he’s taller than his sister. And Scully presses her hand to her mouth and laughs like she hasn’t in awhile, because the FBI jackets her kids have on are swallowing them whole. Emily’s holding a flashlight and a water pistol, William a drawing of aliens that he must have done—god it does look an awful lot like Mulder’s Jersey Devil drawing—and trying his best to look serious.

“What do you think?” Mulder asks, nuzzling her neck. “This year’s Halloween costume?” 

Emily pouts. “Dad wouldn’t let me dye my hair red.” 

Scully laughs, and sits on the floor with her children. “So what case are we solving today?” she asks, and barely contains a smile as Emily launches into a scientific description of a wombat and William smiles shyly up at his mother from beneath his lashes. 

Of all the personas she wears, this is her favorite one.

anonymous asked:

You should become a judge. You have a very important skill.. you can read the rules and apply them xD We also need Angelo or/and Massimiliano to change their career paths. Can there be 2 judges from the same country? We just have to find 6-7 other judges :p

Where do I apply for Massimiliano and Angelo to become judges? ;D

I would try to become one only because I really want to have a NOT CORRUPTED version of ISU Rulebook PDF files and I guess that’s the only way since ISU doesn’t publish the correct version on their website! *grumpy*

Kidding aside, judges have a hard work to do, it’s not easy to have to judge it all one shot in those few minutes. So I would suggest them all to have a drink or two before going through a competition. I doubt they could do much worse than what they are doing and at least they would have a good excuse, then!

Knight in shining armor - Dean Winchester x Reader (Knight/Princess AU) - Part 3

Title: Knight in shining armor

Pairing: Dean Winchester x Reader

Word count: 2,554

Warnings: None

Original imagine: AU. Imagine being a princess and falling in love with one of your father’s knights, Dean Winchester, although you are forbidden to.

Read Part 1 here! l Read Part 2 here!

A/N: A huge apology that this is up so late, but I took my pc back from service just a few days ago and in between having to study for Physics’ test and trying to keep myself from crying because I lost all my files- yeah, it is kinda hard to keep up with this. And this also means the gifs for knight!Dean I searched so much to find. Anyway, I will make up for the lost time! Promise!

Enjoy~! xx’

You walked with Dean in silence for a while. You were biting your lip constantly thinking of something to say, anything to avoid the awkward silence.

“So you’ve been one of my father’s knights for a long time?” you asked out of the blue.

It sounded stupid to you and you were praying he would not sense your awkwardness and slight discomfort. He obviously didn’t as he just smiled with a small nod.

“Yes, princess. I’ve actually been on this castle for most part of my life” he said, glancing for a while at you.

“But don’t you have a family. If you don’t mind me asking”

“Yes, yes I do. But when in his search for more soldiers your father came at my village I just… I couldn’t let him take my younger brother so I volunteered myself” he said as if it was the most simple thing in the world.

“So you basically… sacrificed yourself to save your brother?” you asked again and earned a nod from him.

“That’s really… heroic and selfless of you to do” you said in awe and he just let out a chuckle.

“Not really. I wouldn’t say so. I just did what I felt like. I know that little Sammy was meant for greater things and I wasn’t wrong, after all.” he said with what could only be described as a proud smile.

“Well, it is good to know that he has someone that would do anything for him. Wish I had somebody as well” you mostly mumbled the last part to yourself, looking down as you walked.

“Then I guess you’re lucky as well ‘cause you got me. I would anything for you, princess” he said with a small smirk and you bit your lip to keep the smile from getting bigger.

“Glad to know that” your voice was low as you looked at him and he gazed back at you with a smile. He realized that he had been staring at you for quite long, though, so clearing his throat he immediately averted his eyes from yours.

“But I promise you that if you do something like that when it comes to me-” you started and he piped in.

“Sacrifice myself for you?”

You nodded “Yes, if you ever decide to do something so stupid as that mind my words, you are never going to hear the end of it.” you said and he let out a chuckle.

“Very well then. I will have it in mind, princess” he said with a smirk.

“You better should” you said just as playfully “But I was just wondering. How come I have not seen you this entire time? I mean, sure I don’t just hang out with my father’s knight but I know I have gotten to see most of them. Not you though”

“Probably because you don’t just hang out at the training areas. I mean, yeah, I am your father’s right hand but when we’re not on a battle or on war I spend most of time helping in training the newest soldiers. We have new ones every year and they need training. Kids barely know how to hold a sword properly let alone use it.”

“Yeah, but as you said they’re kids” you pointed out.

“True but so was I and so was everybody else that came with me when your father asked for soldiers. Don’t get me wrong, princess, living here is actually better even if we have to fight. Most of us barely had food to make it by and your father is kind enough to give us money on top, to send to our families. But I’m telling you, when you want to be a knight you have to know the basics.” he shrugged.

“I guess you’re right” you mumbled.

“And we, believe me, are considered lucky. Taking into account how your father rarely chooses to fight but prefers talking over issues first”

“That’s one good thing about my father” you said with a small shrug “But-” you turned to look at Dean “-Don’t you miss them? My dad’s been gone for over a year and I missed him like crazy. I can’t imagine how it would be to have to see them for years”

“It is hard, trust me. But I’ve learned to manage. It was me or Sam, and that was not an option for me. At least your father was kind enough to give us a choice instead of just taking someone he wanted”

“I see” you nodded “But I am sure they miss you as well. Leaving so many people behind that you knew and loved is hard. Your mother. Your father. Your brother… Your girl.” you hesitated to say the last part but did so anyway.

You actually were scared to hear what Dean would say because you were mostly scared to hear him verify it. Not that it would be surprising, after all. He was the perfect type of man. Caring, as it seemed, selfless,  funny and let’s not forget handsome. What kind of woman would let him just pass by.

He let out a chuckle and shook his head “No, no girl.”

“No girl? Really? Wow that’s- that’s hard to believe” you said, letting out a sigh of relief you didn’t know you were holding.

“Not really. I mean yeah I’ve had my moments but- when it comes to an actual relationship I kinda… suck” he said and you both laughed “Besides-” he let out a sad sigh “- I don’t think I’m made for that”

“Why would you say that?” you asked with a frown.

“I ruin everything I touch. Honestly sometimes I think I’m cursed. I try hard, you know, but never succeed and everybody just expects so much from me” he shook his head looking down.

“You tell me” you mumbled.

“'Sides what woman would want me? All I do is make mistakes, ruin others’ lifes and then just drown my sorrows in alcohol. Like would you want a big mess like me?” he scoffed and shook his head “I’m just one big damn flaw, that is for sure. So why the hell drag somebody else with me down in the pit where I belong?” he added and you swallowed the lump in your throat, biting your lip to keep the tears in.

He couldn’t really be thinking this way of himeslf right?

You hadn’t and you certainly didn’t expect to see this side on this man. And what was for sure was that it hurt. It hurt like hell to see him like this.

You never expected so much self-loathing from a man like him. His smile was the brightest you had ever seen and it surely was intoxicating. It was hard to believe that a man that could smile so brightly and lift your spirits so easily was so… broken on the inside.

“Well… I would” you mumbled, looking down at your dress once again.

“What?” you heard him breath out and you slowly and reluctantly turned your head so that you were looking at him.

You felt a small blush form on your cheeks but you could not back down now, could you?

“I said I would certainly want a man like you. You are not one big flaw, Dean. At least I don’t think you are. Yes, you probably have your flaws but- we all do. Believe me, my dad has most of them and I have inherited them unfortunately.” you let out a dry laugh and he did the same “But- I don’t think that takes anything away from who you really are. Sure I can’t say much because I don’t know you all that well and… in all honesty I would love to know you better but-” you cleared your throat “-I guess that’s not the point here. What I want to say is that I believe, no, I know that you’re not what you believe you are, Dean.”

And you continued “Sure you make mistakes, we all do, and we all have our weak moments but that does not mean that we- that you do not deserve something good. You have the most kind heart I’ve seen on a person. You are selfless and caring and I- I know any woman would be lucky to have a man like you and they would certainly be damned if they let you go, Dean”

You saw a smile forme on Dean’s lips and you pursed yours, looking down at the floor instead of him because you knew that if you continued looking at those eyes and speaking then you would surely utter things that he was not supposed to know… Not yet at least.

“And I know that any man would be damn lucky to have a woman like you” he muttered and your head snapped in his direction as you felt the blush darken at hearing his words.

The look in his eyes made your heart flutter.

You would have asked him what he meant by that but before you could even utter a word you reached the main dining room and the two soldiers that stood by the door opened it for you to walk in.

“Ah there she is!” your father exclaimed with a big smile as soon as you walked close to them.

There was a big table in the middle of the huge room, all sorts of food on it and the servants kept bringing more and more. Pouring wine for the guests that had already taken a seat and others motioning for the ones that were still coming to sit on their rightful place. Soft music was playing and you spotted from the corner of your eye the musicians on the far corner of the room. The curtains were pulled back allowing the light of the moon to shine through the big windows that covered and entire wall, the warm light from the candles mixing with that of the moon and managing to make a pleasant environment for everyone.

“Come, come” he said motioning for you to come sit next to your mother than was sitting right next to him.

Although you didn’t want to you let go of Dean’s arm and after a final look at him you turned your head and made your way next to your mother. She was looking at you with a small frown but you just shook your head and gave her a reassuring smile. You took a seat next to her but couldn’t help but slyly look at Dean walk around the table. You knew he was going to stay, just like most of your father’s soldiers and faithful knights had joined you tonight, but what you were hoping was for him to sit close to you.

You got part of your wish come true as you saw him walk straight next to your father and take a seat there. His eyes were locked with yours all the time and you didn’t dare break eye contact.

Something that you did all night.

It was pleasant even though you did not expect it. You thought you were going to just be bored throughout the whole meal - something that you always thought you would do and rarely joined such events - but the case was not like that at all. Dean made everything all the more interesting. You caught yourself laughing more times than you could count and enjoying yourself like never before. He would not stop telling everybody stories. Rarely it would be about only him. Most times it would be about things that had happened either on the castle or even during a battle. How that could be funny you didn’t know but it surely was. Dean made it sound like that.

He spoke about his adventures with some of the knights that were on the table and he obviously was good friends with. He talked about things that happened to them and even reminded to your father about incidents between the two of them while Dean was still new here and young. About how your father had taken a liking to him and treated him like a son… and about how Dean once almost set his beard on fire. That surely was something you, your mother, Dean, everybody else and above all your father were never going to forget.

All the while you laughed, shared funny stories, and not, you caught yourself sneaking glances at Dean. Most of the time it was when he was not looking at you but was laughing. You absolutely loved to see him laugh. Even when he talked with your father or somebody else you could not take your eyes off him. Sneaking glances at him when he was looking at your direction was something you surely liked. There were times though that he would catch your eyes and even though you would blush you found yourself unable to look away from him. And then there were moments when you would catch him staring. Those you enjoyed the most. When you would just smirk at him and raise an eyebrow and he would quickly avert his eyes, pretending to be occupied with something else. Although the blush that creeped up his neck told you differently.

And of course the conversation soon drifted to you. What with your upcoming birthday, what with your father being absent for so long and not having caught up with what was going on yet, what with so many men on the table (talking about the royals of course - not that your father would even so think about you and one of his knights) he had to ask…

“So come on (Y/n). Your mother has not told me much because she obviously does not know much. But you’ve been known to keep secrets ever since you were little. However, you’re a grown woman now. And there surely has to be a man in your life. Am I right?” he raised an eyebrow and all attention was on you now.

Everybody was interested to know if the kingdom’s only princess had found a man.

You looked around you for a second, mouth slightly open ready to speak, until your eyes landed Dean. You looked at him for a while, the soft smile that played on his lips and his green orbs looking at you with an expecting look. The words that he had told you while it was just the two of you ringing in your ears.

You closed your mouth but a smile soon formed on your face “Well, there might be someone” you said in a soft voice, eyes not leaving Dean.

A smile that mirrored yours formed on his lips, as if he had caught to what you were saying and without breaking eye contact he, along with everybody else, raised his golden cup and said 'To the princess!’. Although he just seemed to be mouthing the words as everybody else said it cheerfully.

Well, you now could say for sure that this was one of the best nights of your life…

…and you couldn’t wait for tomorrow to be the best day of your life because, as your father had previously told you, Dean was going to be the one to accompany you to your weekly stroll to the woods.

Part 4

so have a bunch of LQ doodles of bnha since I was trying out the brushes from medibang to find out if I’ll like any hnNNGH ////

stORYTIME:

so I lost my hard drive with all my art files ((because it crashed and having it fixed is like $450 SO LIKE B YE CANT AFFORD)) along with my sai and my brUSHESS gdi so like rip all my wips lol AHAHH

shadowgoggles  asked:

Do you have any picture recommendations from the mystery kids or their respective universe for wallpaper?

Recommendation #1 Wait a day for rhombus of ruin to come out and then screenshot all that new content! Lol

#2 I’ve definitely use these for GF wallpaper before: (x) (x) (x)

#3 A Paranoman one (x)

But finding Paranormal and Coraline ones are hard, because a lot of it is fanart. Which is fine to use as long as you have the artist’s permission and you credit them. Same goes for Mystery Kids wallpaper, because it’s all fanart! 

holtzmann headcanons
  • after spending years working in labs with constant exposure to noisy equipment, the incident with the ghost floats did permanent damage to holtzmann’s ear. the acute acoustic trauma caused a substantial and immediate hearing loss that only grew more significant over time.
  • visiting with doctors confirmed the NIHL diagnosis, and holtz (using the mayor’s secret funds since no one could file worker’s comp for a ghost sting operation that never officially existed) got fitted for a high-tech hearing aid.
  • more often than not, she totally forgets to wear it. the other busters usually have to resign themselves to listening to her shout around HQ because once holtzmann has put something somewhere in her mess of a bedroom (that’s really just an extension of her lab with a bed somewhere buried under the madness) none of them can find it. except for abby. sometimes. the one time erin found it in the fridge on top of kevin’s paleo-meals-at-the-ready baffled all of them, even holtz.
  • as a result of her workplace accident, holtz worked feverishly on making them all customized, weatherproof/waterproof/ectoplasm proof earplugs. she’s working on making them double-function as communication devices but hasn’t gotten that far yet.

“I know you’re lying.” (part 3 to Chelsea Hotel)

(part one, part two.)

aka: He’s feeding her lies, and she’s quite fed up.

*This takes place a month after part two, but still takes place before part one.


To wait up for him was something she stopped doing, maybe that’s why it was so hard to ignite a flame. By the time he got home from his endeavors, she was long gone. The lights were all off, and the only sound was the TV that she left on, because she was convinced the apartment was haunted since they moved in. This was the most uncomfortable break he’s had, he’s never wanted to get back to work so badly. The papers would probably be filed by then, and he’s sure that’s all she’s holding on for. She’s the half that has morals, she’ll wait until then to find someone else.

She’ll find someone to take his place, and he’ll be too many thousands of miles away to even object. She’ll find someone that loves his daughter, he trusts her enough to do that. She’ll find someone that his daughter loves, more importantly. She’ll move out of the city, because she fucking hates it, and he knows it all too well. He’ll teach Aurora to ride a bike in their suburban neighborhood, and she won’t call him daddy, but she’ll feel like she should. He can’t even be half of that, because he doesn’t even know what city he’ll be in at that time.

He shook out the thought with a shot from his liquor cabinet, which probably didn’t help, but it was another kind of sting to feel. This kind of love was something strange, something like a new moon, you couldn’t really see it, but that didn’t mean that it wasn’t there. He was sorry that he had nothing more to offer her, he doesn’t know when he went from feeling so in love that he could suffocate in it, to feeling like he was literally being suffocated. It wasn’t her fault, it was just something in the ring. Even though he wore four at all times before they were married, the extra one was too much.

i’ve been thinking about this a lot lately and i was going to write it in my journal but it seemed too big and it felt like i needed to put it out into the ether so –

if you ever find yourself surrounded by people, or even just one person, who makes you feel like you are difficult to love - those people are wrong. growing up with abuse, growing out of trauma, living with mental illness this is one of the biggest hurdles we face. we’re ugly sometimes. we have jagged edges that we can never ever file down. we yell we scream we cry. we have sharp raw emotion that explodes out of us sometimes for inexplicable reasons - or for absolutely no reason at all. 

and it is very easy to feel like no one can ever love you because of that. and sometimes we have people in our lives that reinforce that feeling. sometimes they do this unintentionally. sometimes they mean every word. but they are wrong. 

you are not hard to love. you’re not hard to love. you are not hard to love. even when the hideous parts of you are extending their claws you deserve love. you deserve love when you’re happy and you deserve love when you’re sad. you deserve love when you look in the mirror and can’t feel your skin. you deserve love when you’re crying on your bathroom floor at 4 in the morning. you deserve love when your hands shake. 

and if someone, anyone tells you that you are hard to love they are wrong. even if that person is you. 

I spent a lot of time rejecting love and affection and compassion because I didn’t think I deserve it. I still don’t, honestly. I think I’m hard to love. I think I’m a burden on the people who love me and that they will stop given enough time. But I’ve come to the point that I can take those feelings out and put them in a box and look at them and know that they are wrong. It doesn’t mean I don’t believe them. It doesn’t mean I don’t feel them. But I know them for what they are, which is a step. Love is not an exhaustible resource, not in this sense. I don’t mean that you can never stop loving someone, because that’s how it happens sometimes. But you can never ever reach a limit for how much love you are allowed or are worthy of. I love you. If someone hasn’t told you today: I love you.

I find it easier to play as a girl for the whole dating thing, because I’m only interested by one or two guys in a game. While the girls are all so great it’s super hard to choose! I wish I had enough files to marry them all. Like in ToTT, I only care about Hiro so that’s was it for my girl file, but when I started playing as a boy I was so torn!

Retired Black OPs agent Melinda May is forced to return to her old ways after her own government tried to kill her. She has to protect accountant Phil Coulson, who got in the crossfires thanks to her, figure out who ordered the hit and reunite with some old friends to save the day. That CIA’s new top agent Bobbi Morse is hunting her, doesn’t make things any easier …

I tried to fight this AU so hard, but all I want is for May, Hill and Hand to team up to find out why there’s a hit on them, for Phil to be simultaneously confused, annoyed and turned on by protective super spy Melinda May and for former russian spy Anna Janovčik (portrayed by Gillian Anderson), who still has a crush on Victoria Hand, to join them!

for my friends playing Transistor

because i want @joshwashingttn and @xxgrovylexx and everyone else i’m trying to convince to play it (i think everyone should play it at least once) to experience it as fully as possible

  • watch the launch trailer and the release trailer. not all the information and scenes therein are reiterated in the game, but they’re helpful for getting a better understanding of the story.
  • comment in every OVC terminal. that’s the most direct sense you’ll get of Red’s character arc.
  • read all the character files in the Functions, and all the Process files in the Limiters. the game wants you to find your own patterns. they help you construct a sense of Cloudbank as a city, of the events leading p to the story in the game, and of the histories and motivations of all the main players.
  • Supergiant Games doesn’t use traditional easy, normal, and hard modes of gameplay. the Limiters adjust the difficulty of gameplay, so activate them to give yourself more of a challenge. if the bosses seem too easy, retry with more Limiters.
  • headphones!
  • transistor is not for everyone. it’s a very distinct way of approaching video game storytelling that definitely isn’t everyone’s cup of tea. if you don’t like it, that’s perfectly ok!
