its good to know i was doing everything wrong

ziaraderosa  asked:

This isn't sad but I thought you might like it. Lance has ADHD and Keith wants to help him study. He leaves Lance’s favorite candies at the end of each paragraph in their textbooks, and even brought him a rainbow glitter pen set for him to write his notes in.

Other things Keith + The Team have gotten/done Lance so he can focus;

-Pidge got him a pair of headphones designed to block out sound, or if Lance has an ADHD like my case and needs niose to function, create sound in certain environments and even protests when hes told he cant wear them in class.

-Hunk, Beautiful baby boy Hunk, teaches him methods of zoning in on one thing like he has to do when his ADD gets a little too distracting, it doesn’t work as well for Lance but he’s touched by the effort.

-Shiro* gives him a thing that helps manage time, and while Lance doesn’t really like it, he’s still touched that Shiro gave an effort. He just… didn’t exactly do a good job, you know? Because its not a time management thing, its a ‘I keep getting distracted and have too move constantly because I have too’ thing.

  • this creates a small rift between them
  • Don’t get me wrong, Lance is touched that Shiro is putting in the effort, but Shiro doesn’t really get it.
  • And he low-key treats it as if its just a thing that can be fixed if you try hard enough, even though its really, really, really not. 
  • And that’s fine Lance guesses, he just doesn’t want Kieth (His super protective boyfriend that does everything and anything to help with his ADHD) too know that that’s how Shiro is treating this whole thing, because Shiro is Keith’s adopted brother and he really doesn’t wanna cause any fight.
  • Spoiler alert, Shiro accidentally says something low-key offensive, and Keith is like, “What the fuck Shiro?” 
  • Cue big fight. 
  • However, when Shiro comes back from his time at the army, after his arm blew up, and he got a prosthetic, He cries and tells Lance that he gets it now- you can’t just shut it off. His PTSD can’t just shut off, neither can Lance’s ADHD, or Hunks ADD, and he finally gets it.

-Keith almost punched someone who said Lance should just get over the whole ADHD thing, and that person was a teacher. The comment wasn’t directed at Lance, but since Keith was an office aid, he over heard them, and lets just say he is not an office aid anymore.

  • Lance is touched 

-Allura, by extension her uncle Coran, haven’t moved down here yet, as they come after Shiro comes back from war. 

*Note Shiro is not the bad guy in this story, rather he doesn’t really get it until he has to go through something like PTSD.

Wiccan: Reversing the Threefold Law

Actually, I mean more like “I fucked up and I know it so I’m sorry” 

This post was inspired by a binding spell I thought was harmless, just preventing someone I know from causing more pain to another but the threefold law did not like it for whatever reason so it kicked my ass three times for it. 

We are all human, we make mistakes. If we didn’t make mistakes then the threefold law would not exist! 

Anyways I feel like this ‘spell’ is hard to have a exact step by step procedure as what you did may require more effort on your part to make up for it. Maybe you got wrongfully mad at someone, maybe you had a spell go wrong or maybe you somehow hurt someone else with your magick.

1. Think about the things that had happened in your life recently. Do you think you’ve received your punishment threefold? If not, how bad do you think your punishment would be? Make preparations if you think this is the case. Remind yourself that bad things will not happen forever and you will eventually ride out the storm. 

2. When you believe you’ve gotten your punishment threefold, in your own words say a apology to the universe. Basically something like “I know what I did wrong, I have received my punishment threefold and I have learned my lesson”

3. Cleanse yourself. If possible, try cleansing the spot where you think the wrongful action took place. If you hurt someone then say sorry to them or do something nice for them. Of course don’t send them a message out the blue saying “I’m sorry I put a curse on you but its all good now and its lifted.” 

some cleansing ideas 

-I personally meditated in the shower and used everything I have. Shampoo, conditioner, sugar scrub, body soap, heck I even shaved for good measure. With each action I put in a intention of cleansing myself. 

-Burn sage as whole leaves or incense. Some other cleansing things to burn would be charcoal burners, frankencense, mryyh, holy wood and sandalwood. 

-Physically clean your house

4. Do something good for others. It can be little as donating a small amount to charity, helping with chores or even nice comments. But make each action genuine. 

If you are experiencing more negativity, meditate on what you need to do. 

B.A.P Needs More Love...

I wasn’t going to write this but…I think this needs to be said. I hate that B.A.P isn’t getting the support they deserve. I hate how they are worried about if they are going to lose their fans. Or that they think there music isn’t good enough. I hate seeing Himchan and Youngjae worry about if their not good enough. Or seeing Daehyun stress about his singing, thinking that its not good enough.

Usually they don’t tell what’s on their mind in front of us fans because they don’t want us to worry. But, Now that I saw this…I feel like us BABYs didn’t know B.A.P that well. When I heard they got sued TS, I was lost. I thought TS was one of the good companies that didn’t and wouldn’t do that to their artist. But, I was wrong. I didn’t see the signs.

But hearing Yongguk encouraging his members basically, “Everything will be okay as long as we got each other.” So, I think we all need B.A.P in our life. B.A.P is the first group that left together and sued together. They followed their leader for the justice they deserved at the peak of their popularity. They lost a good portion of their fans during their hiatus, as they went to other groups. Now back, They are starting from scratch again. And I believe they will go back to the top again. 

I hope during this tour we gain more Babys! And I hope that we get more first places for them! To show them that we haven’t left and they we will always be by their side!

All gifs are not mine! They go to their rightful creators!

A kind of Disclaimer...or the opposite..

If you think, because I love and support Severus Snape, I quite logically have to  like or excuse everything bad he did, you are wrong. I dont have to. But I love him together with his faults, flaws and also the good side. 

But you dont know me and my own values….maybe I consider some of his bad sides not as that bad like you do…..

Maybe he is also hated so much by some because they know deep inside, they feel like him, but unlike him dont dare to show it outside…..they feel their own dark side but try to deny it is there. Its quite relieving to find the evil Scapegoat Snape for that instead. I am aware of my dark sides, and I am aware it can very easily happen to slip down to the dark sides if just the circumstances are bad enough. I dont excuse him, I feel with him and can understand his reasons.

Online Plus Size Shopping Guide for Super Cute Clothes

Notes: Everything contained herein is based on my own personal shopping experiences, so YMMV. No one retailer is perfect for plus size shopping, and not everyone’s taste aligns with mine, so please bear this in mind. Right now, I am about a US size 16/18 or XL/2X depending on the retailer, but I have bought online up to about a US 20. I have very chubby arms, but my bust and waist are a lot smaller than my hips, so I tend to have some trouble finding things that fit all over. Most retailers usually have a plus cut, so there shouldn’t be a lot of discrepancy from my experiences for sizes above US 22. I know this will not be all-inclusive, so please feel free to add on whatever you think is helpful, because I know so many plus size shoppers really, really struggle, so share your experiences and advice.

Notes pt 2: I don’t really shop at B&M plus size retailers (like Lane Bryant, Torrid, Catherine’s, etc.) but I did work at Avenue for a while, so I will just leave those retailers out. Again, if you have a lot of experience with a particular plus size B&M retailer, join in the conversation and add whatever you can that will help people shopping online or in-store. The same goes for department stores, I do not ever shop in department stores, so I have no experiences to add there.

Notes pt 3: If you are shopping exclusively online, please try to get measurements so that you can compare that to size charts. Remember, there is no standardization in sizing, and every company sizes a little differently, so size charts are your friend. Plus, if you really fall in love with an item, you could tell from the size chart if it could be altered to fit if you bought a size up or something. (I know this is not an option for everyone, but it does at least give the option for some.)

Notes pt 4: I won’t link to my Ebates account because I am not trying to make money off of anyone, but if you don’t have it, SIGN UP NOW. It is so easy to use, and you get money back for shopping. I’ll note below which of these stores offers Ebates rewards.

My go-tos:

-ModCloth. They offer sizes up to 4x, but their house brand tends to be cut about a size larger. They have a decent size chart that allows you to compare your own measurements. They also have a customer service live chat, and if you tell them what item you’re looking at, they can almost always get measurements for it so you can compare. (I have done this several times, and it absolutely makes the shopping process a lot easier.) There are lots of reviews and outfit photos from other shoppers, which also really helps if you’re on the fence about something. They offer a lot of different styles, leaning toward kitschy/cutesty/retro/vintage-inspired offerings. Shipping is moderate, it usually takes about 10 days if you choose the free shipping option (if you qualify.) BEST FOR: Unique dresses and a-line skirts. PRICE RANGE: moderate, but quality is usually good. Most items will be between $40-$75, but it varies; items in the sale section can be anywhere from about 30% to 60% off, so you can get some GREAT deals in the sale section. SIZE RANGE: XS-4X. Does not offer Ebates rewards.

-eShakti. CUSTOM SIZING. Let me repeat: they do custom sizing for their pieces. Plus, if you don’t like the sleeves, neckline, embroidery, pockets (you heathen!), etc, you can alter. They have casual and special occasion dresses and separates, all of which you can custom size. I can’t emphasize this enough. If you’re looking for something for a special event, or if you’re like me and a different size on top and bottom, this is your best friend. They do charge a fee for customization, but it is worth it since it’s cheaper than alteration. Sign up for their email list, they often do some good sales where you can get a good deal. There’s a special discount for shopping on mobile, too. They do offer free returns as well. NOTE: dresses are made as they are ordered, so if you need it for a certain event or date, order as early as you can, as it can take about 15 days to receive your items. BEST FOR: workwear, special occasion dresses, jersey dresses for every day. PRICE RAGE: the higher end of moderate, but the dresses are custom made when you order and the quality is outstanding. Without a discount code, an uncustomized dress is about $45-$70. SIZE RANGE: 0 to 36W. Yes, you read that right. And you can customize ANY size. Does not offer Ebates rewards.

-Target.com. I know a lot of the stuff Target sells online in its plus section is bullshit, but for basics, you can’t go wrong. The prices are good, and the quality of the Merona t-shirts and cardigans is excellent for what you’re paying. The Who What Wear line is a lot more fashionable and great to wear to work, but be aware that everything runs about a size smaller. I do not care for the Ava and Viv line, and I think I have only ever bought one pair of shorts from that line, which I promptly returned. If you like Ava and Viv good on you, it just doesn’t do it for me. You can return in-store if you buy something online, and if you have the Target RedCard, you get 5% off and free shipping on items from the website. It generally takes about 5-7 business days for a package to come to me. BEST FOR: basics like cardigans and t-shirts; Who What Wear for work, but pay close attention to sizing. PRICE RANGE: low, especially if you pay close attention to sales and use the RedCard discount. Most items average between $10 and $30 USD. SIZE RANGE: sizing for Ava and Viv and Merona plus is X-4X (translating, according to the website, to roughly 14W to 30W.) Sizing for Who What Wear is X-4X (where an X is probably about a straight-size 12/14, 1X is about 14W, and going up from there. All items I have from WWW are sized smaller than the rest of the plus clothing at Target.) Does offer Ebates rewards. *IMPORTANT EDIT: I just read that the Victoria Beckham line for Target will go up to size 3x, but odds are that the sizing will be more in line with WWW rather than Ava and Viv.*

-BooHoo. BooHoo is an online retailer based in the UK, so make sure that you choose USD from the drop down at the top of the page, because when you do, it also converts the sizing. They offer some workwear, but most of their stuff trends toward casual or clubwear. If you want something on the sexier side, BooHoo has you covered. In my mind they’re kind the UK answer to Forever 21, but I think most of their stuff is cuter. Be careful, though, because sometimes the quality isn’t quite what you’d expect. That said, they do a TON of good sales, it is quite easy to get many things from their site for not a lot of money. Like F21, they too have cute, cheap, trendy accessories as well. Even coming from overseas, they ship very fast, and I haven’t ever waited too long for a package from them. BEST FOR: trendy pieces, experimenting with your look, clothes for going out and partying down. PRICE RANGE: comparable to Forever 21, so pretty low, with some nicer items going into moderate, but they do offer a lot of codes. SIZE RANGE: US 12-24. (The dresses I have bought from there seem pretty true to size, but I have not bought any bottoms, so I can’t speak to their pants sizing.) Does offer Ebates rewards.

-ASOS. To me, ASOS is BooHoo’s grown up, more chic older sister. They have an amazing variety, from workwear to club wear to casual to formal. If your style is more eclectic or punky, you will definitely find something you like here, but even if you trend super feminine, you will not be at a loss. They also have a MEN’S PLUS SIZE section, which I only recently discovered. I have not bought anything from this portion of the site, but even knowing that it exists is helpful, and it looks like they offer staples, work wear, and more trendy pieces there as well. Their accessories/shoes/beauty sections are off the hook too, seriously; their accessories are amazing. They also have basics (like leggings or tshirts) in multi-packs, so you can save even more and stock up. Sizing can be hit or miss, since they carry a lot of different brands (including some BooHoo items!!) but most items I have bought have been true to the size chart that they provide. They do offer good codes from time to time. Items ship from the UK, and it takes about 1.5 to 2 weeks to reach the West Coast of the US. BEST FOR: a wide variety to choose from, pretty dresses, fashionable casual wear. PRICE RANGE: moderate to high, depending on the item and the occasion. They have good codes sometimes, and a great sale section. Items can range anywhere from $20 to $200. SIZE RANGE: for Women’s Curve & Plus it’s 14-26, but sizing can vary between brands. For Men’s Plus Size, it is XL-XXXL (they offer measurements on the site, so you can convert. I know jack all about men’s sizing, so I can’t really speak to how helpful this is, but if someone knows more, please let me know.) Does offer Ebates rewards.

 Love/hate category (AKA I don’t often shop there, but if I see something I like I will buy it):

-Forever 21. We all know this one, and probably a lot of us hate it a little bit too. I have some awesome things from F21 that I really enjoy, but I have gotten some stuff from there that I straight up hate. Also, their Plus section is ridiculously priced compared to the rest of the site. Like if you advertise $2 camis, make the fucking Plus ones $2 too. They do make some cute stuff, and if you’re familiar with how their sizing works, you can probably get pretty lucky and score some cute things. With how popular the website is, you do have to pull the trigger pretty quickly, or you might miss out. A lot of cute stuff goes out of stock and never comes back. Of course, there’s also the accessories and the beauty sections, so you can find cute stuff to pile into your cart to meet the free shipping minimum. You can return in store if you buy online, but for me at least, going into a Forever 21 store is a very trying experience in every single way. Sometimes the sizing is way off, so read reviews if you can; I find that the sizing is especially weird for the “deals” items that tend to be very inexpensive. Also, the non-stretchy tops just aren’t made for fat arms. PRICE RANGE: low to moderate. Items are anywhere from about $10 to $40. BEST FOR: dresses and skirts, shirts with lots of words on them. SIZE RANGE: 1X-4X. Does offer Ebates rewards.

-Simply Be. They have some cute shit, but I don’t often find things there that I need.They have a lot of casual and workwear, and some pretty dresses. I have found that the sizing is pretty good, but always check the size chart as this is another UK brand. They really push their store credit card, which does have some rewards, but also a super high APR. (They took a line out of the Avenue/Torrid/Lane Bryant/Catherine’s book by trying to create customer loyalty with the card. I won’t get into a rant here, but unless you plan on shopping ONLY at that one store, then don’t get the card.) PRICE RANGE: moderate to high. Items are in the $40 to $100 range. BEST FOR: I can’t really say since I haven’t shopped here a ton. SIZE RANGE: 6 to 28. Does offer Ebates rewards.

-Eloquii. They make beautiful clothes, but every time I work up the nerve to buy something, it is sold out. They’re like a cooler, more fashion-forward version of Lane Bryant in my mind. They do a lot of really gorgeous workwear, but some more casual pieces as well. They’re known for their Kady cigarette pants, which they offer in a variety of colors and patterns. In my opinion, they’re a lot more daring with their cuts than a lot of other plus retailers, and now they offer Plus Petite and Viola Fit (which is for bodies like mine that are smaller on top with wider hips.)Their prices are high, but they offer a lot of different sales and they usually have a pretty good sale section as well. PRICE RANGE: moderate to high, depending on if there is a sale. BEST FOR: workwear, vibrant colors, pretty dresses that are unique. SIZE RANGE: 14-28 in Original, Petite, and Viola. Does offer Ebates rewards.

My problems with bughead

DISCLAIMER: I hate bughead, not bughead shippers. I acknowledge that you can ship what ever you like, so acknowledge that i can disagree

anyway on track

1. It erases a key aspect of Jugheads character. I know asexuals can have romantic interests but Jughead does not. Look at any of the comics and see how often its clearly expressed that he is not interested in woman, whether that  means he’s homoromantic or aromantic is up to interpretation (the more likely being the latter) Putting him in a relationship with a woman is unnecessary and just all together OOC. I get riverdale is all for DFP Jughead but like thats just not who he is.

2. It steps on Betty’s story as well. One of the key aspects of Betty’s story is her insistent fawning on Archie. Im all for her being an independent women and  getting over Archie but to throw her immediately into a relationship with her next closest male friend (minus our mandatory GBF Kevin but dont even get me started on that) is a step in the wrong direction.

3. I love a good romance as much as anyone, but why can’t we have one m/f close friendship with out it turning romantic for once? Im unbelievably sick of television ruining great friend ships by giving them ~straight sexual tension~ (you know like they hang out sometimes and one time they even looked each other in the eye they must be fucking) Jughead and Betty’s friendship was so good, why do you gotta fuck with that? 

I get it, if riverdale is your first introduction to these characters you wouldn’t get it, but trust that bughead is so OOC and unnecessary. Is this due to the CW’s tendency to fuck up everything they touch? maybe, but either way its painful to watch. (dont get me wrong i love the show but its a bit trashy)

anyway yeah im done ranting, ive got more salt for this hetero-normative bull, but im tired  so yknow

whalesharked  asked:

hi there since youre like. a seasoned musician and professional Real Cool Guy i was wondering if you had any tips for someone who is neither of those things? i mean for someone who wants to try making music, but doesnt know where to start or how to make things sound nice. thank you

I’ve gone back and forth on this for years but I think the best way to start writing music is just to write stuff down. A lot. Write everything down. Even if its wrong, or doesn’t sound write the act of trying to get it down will help you. Also maybe you’ll come back to it later and figure it out again. I do this all the time. 

Theres no wrong way to write a song, but I mean theres obviously a way that sounds good and a way that doesn’t. Music should feel good to write, so if you’re having fun then you’re doing it right.

A common problem new and “seasoned” musicians BOTH have is that they often cant get whats in their head on paper. This is something that gets easier with practice. If you can sing it, consistently, then you can write it down if you have some basic understanding of theory etc.

uhhh.. you know what I’m waiting for a ride somewhere and thinking about this has got me nostalgic so I’ll take a little bit to give you a crash course in theory. 

The first thing you’re gonna want to learn is rhythms. its definitely the easiest thing to start with and it will help you immensely. MOST music, especially pop music can be divided into patterns of 4 beats. try and find the beat and mentally count in your head “one, two, three, four” at a consistent on beat pace. This wont be true for every song, but 9 times outta 10 thats what itll be. It might not be obvious at first but you’ll get better at it with practice I promise. Each repetition of the 4 count pattern you’re doing is called a “measure.” (also called a “bar”) Usually songs are written in sixteen bar phrases. Since you’ve already divided it into quarters those are gonna be called “quarter notes” (usually)  (there are some instances where they wont be but thats getting kinda advanced dont worry about it yet)

Once you can consistently find the beat in songs you listen to, in the same space you’d divide it into four, start subdividing it into 8 pieces instead. This is complicated to explain without an example. Dancers often do this, (though, for theory purposes, incorrectly) and you’ll hear them count off something like “annnnnnd five, six, seven, eight” before they start. For musicians we usually use the shorthand of “and” for every other in-between note. So in the same space you’re counting 1 2 3 4, add the beat of “and” between each note. “1.. 2.. 3.. 4..” becomes “1 and 2 and 3 and 4 and.”  These are called eighth notes, because you’re dividing the same measure into 1/8ths instead of ¼ths. I know I know it sounds dumb when you type it out like this but thats where it starts. I just saved you 3 weeks of AP Music Theory.

For someone just starting out this handles a big portion of what you’ll want to be writing down. If you’re working in music software you can just slide the notes around to where you want them tonally.

Next up you’re going to want to start thinking about WHICH notes you want to write down. Learn about intervals first. Intervals are the space between two notes. Each interval has a certain FEEL to it. The two basic intervals we’ll be dealing with right now are called Half steps and Whole steps. A half step is the shortest distance between two notes (in western music theory) a whole step, and strap yourself in for this one, is two half steps. There are other intervals that are bigger and can get complicated in terms of naming but for now lets stick with those. A piano is a great instrument because it has this information mapped out visually. Notes that are right next to each other are a half step apart.

Thats a little cluttered but you get it.

Learn about keys and scales next. In western music theory there are only 12 notes. Each are a half step apart. Most scales are only gonna use 7 of those and in a VERY specific pattern. Major Scales, which is the bulk of what you’ll be hearing, are the basis of whats called a “key.” The key of somethings tells you which 7 notes you’re gonna be using, and how. That gets kinda complicated so for now lets focus on scales. A Key is just shorthand for how many sharps or flats does this have. Dont worry about what sharps and flats are right this second.

We’ll start with C major because thats just all the white keys on the piano. A lot of songs are written in C major because its easy to play. Theres the big secret. So in the key of C major you have whats called the C Major scale. C D E F G A B C. “But thats 8 notes, you said 7″ well the first and the last are basically the same but in different octaves which are a whole other thing dont worry about it right now. Each major scale follows the same pattern of intervals. It goes, and im sorry in advance for this, whole whole half whole whole whole half. So from C to D, whole step. From D to E, whole step. E to F, half step. Etc. You get it. That means from C to E you’d add up the intervals to 4 total half steps. From C to G, thats gonna be 8 half steps. These have specific names (major third and perfect 5th), but since it depends on the note letter names and scale degrees and all sorts of stuff we wont worry about that for now.

Once you have that figured out (you don’t have to memorize it or anything) start thinking of scales in terms of numbers. C = 1, D = 2, E = 3 etc and so forth. Now, no matter what key you are in, you can just say the number and still be right. If you’re in the Key of E, you don’t have to remember that the third note of E is G# you can just think “3.” Going back to our previous interval example since C and E are 4 half steps apart, ANY 3 of ANY Major key, will be 4 half steps above the first one pretty cool right?? The 5th note of the scale (G, in our example) in a major key is (almost) ALWAYS going to be 8 half steps above the 1. Theres obviously exceptions (like “what do you call it when its BELOW the note, is it 8 half steps that way too?” (no) etc) to these rules but this is basic stuff.

Major chords are the 1st 3rd and 5th note of the major scale, or for short 1 3 5. Thats a major triad. Pretty simple right? You just learned your first chord! that rules! You can use the pattern of intervals we talked about on any note and you have the major chord for that note. This is sort of getting away from me but my rides still not here so its fine.

Next up you’re gonna want to get into diatonic chords. This gets kinda complicated so I wont go too in depth about it. If a major triad is 1 3 5, what does that make 2 4 6? well its interesting I would ask myself that in a text post that I control. Since the pattern of intervals for a major chord is not consistent all the way through (you got whole steps AND half steps??? the fuck) you end up with a different quality of chord. the space between 2 and 4 is only three halfsteps, so it sounds different! in this case its actually whats called a minor chord. NEAT. You can refer to this chord as the “2 chord of C” and people will think you know some shit. If you realy want to get into it, you’d write it as ii, the lowercase telling you that its minor, and the roman numerals telling you its the second diatonic scale of the key. It is also called Dorian, or Supertonic depending on how snooty you wanna be. Thats just a taste man music theory fucking owns.

Anyway, look into that stuff and thats a good starting point.  This was a really long way of saying “when you write melodies use a lot of 3s and 7s I got really carried away because I love this sort of thing but I also just saved you like… a whole semester.


A QUICK EDIT: you dont have to know any of this to write music or enjoy writing it! Do what feels good to you, and if thats enough then hell fuckin yea my dude. This stuff is just extra icing on the cake. As long as you are enjoying what you do it doesn’t matter how you write.

A Letter To My Younger Self

This world is huge and full of things you do not understand.
I want you to know that that is okay.
People can be mean and cruel, but those who are worth it will show you how to see the good in everything.
I want you to know that the harsh hands that tell you you’re not worth it; THEY’RE WRONG.
And just because he hurt you, doesn’t mean everyone will.
The hardships that you will face do not mark your weakness, they only prove your strength. Its okay to ask for help, it’s okay to speak up. I swear someone will listen.
I want you to know you’re important.
Explore everything. Explore the world, explore your body, explore your very own thoughts. It’s okay to be curious.
Ask questions and listen to the answers. Allow yourself to learn.
I want you to know how powerful your mind is.
Be nice. Be nice to those around you. Smile at strangers, hug your parents, say please and thank you. And for gods sake, be nice to yourself. Be nice to yourself.
You are overflowing with so many awesome things; you are blossoming and you must not forget to love who you are.
I want you to know that there will be bad days, bad people, but they will never have the power to define who you are or who you want to be if you do not let them.
Climb a lot of trees, tell them you love them, voice your opinions, be kind, be strong, admire the sky, accept yourself and those around you.

I want you to know that you will be okay.

I love you so much. More than you'll ever know. I love you for who you are, but its because I love you that I can't let you stay who you are. You make a lot of bad decisions. You don't pay attention to me. You don't talk to me as much as you do to others. You don't trust me as much as I trust you. You don't tell me everything that's wrong. You don't send me "Good night"s or "I love you"s like I do. But it's okay. Because I'll change all that about you soon enough. I'll make you mine. All mine :)

anonymous asked:

You always have good fanfiction recommendations, any good Newsies fanfic that you've haven't linked before? THANK YOU FOR DOING THE LORD'S WORK!

u know i do

okay so this one is called the party, it’s javid and i have cried so many times while reading it. it’s by queenofbrooklyn and absolutely beautiful + it has sarah

this next one is called almost something by tyrellis and i have laughed out loud while reading it. its the only fake dating au w newsies ever in existence and its so quality (javid + established sprace) + it has sarah (and kath)

this last one is the literal worst. its twelve years old and 26 chapters long. it’s called everything you’ve done wrong and u need to read it. spot and race are giant assholes also there’s a garage band?? anyways it’s as old as my sister.

What if?

What if I told you that after all this time, I still care for you?
What would you do?

What if I told you that when you told me you were leaving,
I remained stoic where you left?
And I never left.

I’m a million pieces and I’m crumbling apart.
And oh, before I go somewhere else,
Would you mind if I take back my heart?
Because it still longs for you.
And I do not know why
but it seems to not get tired of thinking about you, too.
I know.
That somehow I don’t make sense.
But hey, isn’t that the way how love works?
We try our best to give everything we have
and leave ourselves empty.
It snatches away the clarity
in our thoughts
And I thought that was love
But maybe I was wrong.
Love is a tuxedo
And I’m no good at wearing one.

And for what its worth,
I still love you.
Perhaps,
as of this writing.
But soon enough, I’ll forget this feeling too.

new-recipe  asked:

DaiSuga, KageHina, and BokuAka: Who would get up in the middle of the night to tend to the crying baby? Who would change the diapers? Who would get completely soaked when giving the baby a bath? Who would suggest taking the baby to the doctors over every little thing?

daisuga: 

  • probably in the beginning it’s mostly suga, but i think they’d take turns. and not like “i got it last time its your turn” but “you did it last time i’ll do it this time” they dont see it as a chore theyre 2 good for this world
  • daichi gets to do diapers
  • whoever gets soaked first usually soaks the other one. great entertainment for the baby
  • daichi panics over everything and suga knows when somethings actually wrong 

kagehina: 

  • sometimes it’s “you do it” “no you do it” “no YOU” and sometimes its “i got it” “no i got it” “i’m better at it anyway” “i’ll prove yOU WRONG” this applies to the first two questions
  • hinata stands in the bath tub over the child to bathe them so
  • both of them. they are lost as parents

bokuaka:

  • bokuto is usually pretty fuckin attached to the bed but when it comes to the baby crying at night he’s sprinting away before akaashi is even awake
  • akaashi. bokuto would probably die if he tried to change a diaper
  • bokuto. hes always soaked from head to doe. like, looks like someone pushed him into a pool type of soaked. akaashi doesnt know how it happens
  • probably also bokuto. it makes akaashi worried when hes like “the baby is sick” and hes like “whats wrong” “they sneezed”

Warnings: none

Word count: 1098

A/N: Hey sweeties, so this is my first imagine ever I really hope I did what you had in mind and some kind of feedback would be really helpful <3 I might also do a part 2 depending on the feedback. It’s loosely based off of s05e15 

Disclaimer: I do not own Teen Wolf or any of its characters!

You didn’t really know where it all went wrong. It was the end of the summer break and everything was going great. You had spent the whole summer with your long-term boyfriend Derek away from Beacon Hills enjoying a couple non supernatural months. But of course everything good has to end right. You had to go back in town to help your uncle sheriff Stilinski at the police station. It was a month after the end of the break when things started going downhill. Kids started going missing and you knew it wasn’t just a random kidnapper stopping by. And because of your newly found banshee abilities you knew it was something really really bad. But you never imagined it’d be that bad. After you read the book about the Dread Doctors something in your mind clicked. Memories showed up on the surface of your consciousness. Things clouding your vision, the same scenes playing around in your mind. It was too much. One day you thought you’ve had enough of this nightmare you went to seek for answers. You decided to search for help in Eichen House without telling anyone of the pack. That was mistake number one. You knew the only person that could possibly help you understand what was happening was Dr. Valack. Second mistake. The rest of the story was a bit blurry but you remember one thing. They got you. That was your current situation. Tied in leather knots barely keeping your eyes open. Traveling through memories and seeing your friends die. It has been a week or so, you didn’t remember exactly how long you’ve been tied inside this hell house but you couldn’t hold on anymore. You’ve tried everything. After Meridith decided to tag along teaching you how to ‘control your bansheeness’ things became even worse. You saw your friends die and the only way you could save them was to learn how. Once you almost got out. Almost. Then you just gave up… You started thinking about your friends. Did they  even know you were missing? Your uncle and stiles had so much going on right now that they probably haven’t noticed. But they had to right? Your mind took you to last summer. Everything was perfect. Just you and Derek enjoying a little time off. Did Derek even know what was happening? You knew you were going to die tonight. You could feel the life slipping out of you. With every passing minute you felt weaker and weaker. You wanted to see them. Your family, your friends. You wanted to see him. You and Derek have been trough so many things. He was your anchor and you were his. The pack thought of you as the pack mum. You couldn’t just sit here and whither away. But the weaker you got the more your hope to see your friends again decreased. Little did you know they were making a plan. A plan that was either going to get you out of Eichen House or kill them. Stiles even called Derek. He had every right to know that his supernatural girlfriend was captured by a bunch of psychopaths in an asylum. But the spastic boy kept a thing or two for himself. Like the fact that you probably wouldn’t survive the night… And that the plan might not work… 

'Uh, okay any questions?’ Stiles looked around the room hoping everyone got the plan. Well clearly Liam had to open his mouth.

'How do we get into Eichen in the first place?’

 'Whats our worst case scenario?’

'What if i cant do it?’ No one believed in the plan.

'Okay, admittedly a lot could go wrong.’ Stiles agreed.

'Everything could go wrong!’ Liam protested. 

'Guys, if we don’t do this, we lose Y/N. She’s gonna die in there tonight. And she might take a lot of innocent people with her.’ Their alpha said and somehow everyone believed they can do it.

'Plus we have Derek on the way right?’ Kira mentioned. 

'He needs time to get here and right now time is something we don’t have.’ Stiles said remembering his talk with Derek earlier today.

'Guys we have to go.’

Everyone stuck to the plan doing everything exactly how they talked it this afternoon. Kira and Malia went for the electrical room while Stiles, Scott and Liam went for Y/N.After Valack drilled the hole in your head you knew these were your last hours. That was it. You were dying and there was absolutely nothing you could do. Your friends would continue with their lives with the bitter memory of this day. Just like they did after Allisons death. Life goes on right? Suddenly a familiar figure appeared in the room. The lanky boy you called your cousin was right above you looking petrified. Just another dream. You were hallucinating because of the blood loss. 

'Y/N…’

’S-Stiles yo-you should go’

'What, no Y/N, we’re here to get you out of this place!' 

'You’re going to die if you stay, all of you…’ He just looked at you without saying a word.

'Please…’ You heard footsteps down the hall. Stiles heard them too. 

'It’s too late…’ The footsteps became closer and Stiles came up to you and just hugged you.

'I will get you out of here Y/N, I’m not losing you too. And Derek would kill me otherwise.’

 He managed to smile weakly holding onto you.

 'You’re damn right Stilinski' 

You both saw the person standing at the door. Derek stood there for a fraction of a second before his eyes landed on you. He saw your weak body and the blood on the pillow. Your boyfriend rushed to you and took your barely alive self in his hands. Just by touching you you felt better. He sent a bolt of energy down your body and you felt like you could fight an army but that’s not what you were capable of at the moment. You felt better nonetheless, your head didn’t burn and you could actually think straight. You saw the black veins on his arm. He then looked you in the eyes and all of the pain disappeared. You never knew how he did that but every time he looked at you every kind of pain and worry just vanished. It was like reliving the summer over again. You completely forgot your friends are in danger.

'How did you even get in here? There’s mountain ash everywhere.' 

Stiles questioned.

'I evolved remember? Now let’s move someone’s coming’

'Yeah the pack.’

'Someone’s coming’ you said 'but its not our pack.’

Emmerdale Live and Organized - April 20, 2017

Thursdays are the crazy day. Let’s discuss.  

The Bachelorette/Bachelor Party From Hell

Where do I start with this? Awkward. That is how I will describe everything that happened to Rhona and Pierce. Pierce is still a creeper. A creepy creeper that is up to no good.  Rhona is blinded by something, I don’t think its love. Not at all.  Oh, my god! Pierce killed Tess. Whoever Tess is. He killed her. Someone save Rhona! Vanessa can’t do it all on her own! I know the wedding is called off, but we all know that’s not true.

Tracy and the Loved/Hated Book?

I thought Tracy was in on what was happening, but I was wrong. Do you know what confuses me? All the women in the village loved the book, but now they hate it? What is that about? Did I have too much to drink at the beginning of this storyline? Shrug. I did enjoy the branding/marketing meeting I just watched though. It was fun to see.

Adam. Adam. Adam.

Everyone needs to take a chill pill. I think they have to wait for the test results to come in before everyone considers the next options. Why would the two of them be so against adoption? They come from families that have adopted siblings. Victoria should be ecstatic about it. I guess they want to make Vadam explode so common sense is gone right now.

I still think they should slow their roll. Why is Victoria pushing this so hard? Why is Adam acting like his world is over? Everyone needs to slow down. They are so setting up Aaron being a sperm donor, aren’t they?

The White Family Has Been Around the Whole Time?!?!

It was nice not to see Rebecca, but that begs the question. How long have the Whites been in town and we haven’t seen them at all? You would think we would have seen them in the Woolpack grabbing dinner or a drink. Even in the café. They have been MIA but there the whole time. Odd. It was REALLY nice to see Chrissie again. Even if she is bowing down to her crazy son. Speaking of the nutter, Lachlan is back and as bitter as ever. Bring on the theory he is going on a killing spree. I have a list, I’ll drop it off at Home Farm for him.

I’m going to ask a weird question. Are Ronnie and Lawrence supposed to be an older version of Aaron and Robert? Um…..

It’s Just Speculation! – Robert x Aaron Edition

Originally posted by apositivelifeaffirmingway


Here is my time talking Robron.  So, there have been a ton of speculation flying about on the DS message boards. Again, take everything with a grain of salt.  I still believe in Original Theory. Robert isn’t the dad/they never slept together.

Here is what I hope to see happen from this point on. I have talked about this with so many people on Tumblr, but I’m writing it down for reference sake. I’m very fuzzy on how the reveal will go or the fact that there is a lot of talk about the story being done by the end of May. So, let’s start at the end of May.  

I would want to see Robert push Aaron away. Robert never did feel like he deserved Aaron, after all of the drama, he really doesn’t think he deserves Aaron or his love now. He keeps pushing him away, and Aaron keeps fighting for him.  It’s time for Aaron to get better while Robert slips into a hole of despair.  

I’m sure because I want this it won’t happen. However, I’m leaving it to the internet to discuss. 

icymoonwatcher  asked:

Hi Butterfly! I checked your tags and you said you believed something terrible would happen to Shireen (which I agree with) but I was wondering if you had any more specific predictions. I think Mel and Patchface will definitely be involved somehow but I don't know what to think regarding whether it'll be an intentional sacrifice or bloodshed/greyscale spreading on the part of Patchface.

While some ASOIAF meta writers are comfortable doing so, I personally dislike making specific predictions because it’s not my book to write. (If I want to write fanfic, I will, but when I do, I don’t claim the actual series will follow my plots.) Oh, once in a while I can definitely see where the story is going – Raff the Sweetling heading to Braavos, for example – but it’s not like I could have predicted any of the detailed events of “Mercy”, like The Bloody Hand or even Arya becoming part of an actors’ troupe. Therefore, when I speculate, I generally express things in terms of chances or odds, based on extensive evidence and occasional thematic points.

So, back to Shireen. Because of extensive evidence and thematic points, I’m unfortunately certain something terrible will happen to her. I think Melisandre and/or Patchface will be involved. Can I give you specifics? No. However, this is what I can give you:

  • Melisandre very much wants to wake dragons from stone to fulfill the prophecy of Azor Ahai Reborn/The Prince that was Promised (unaware that Dany already has). She thinks she needs king’s blood for this magic, and wanted to sacrifice Edric Storm by burning. She also believes she is more powerful at the Wall than almost anywhere else.
  • Melisandre has had visions of Patchface surrounded by skulls, with his lips all bloody. She believes he is dangerous.
  • Patchface is basically Shireen’s only friend (poor child). His origins are exceedingly mysterious and some of his rhymes are true prophecies. However, despite his remarkable creepiness, he seems otherwise harmless, with no apparent reason for Melisandre to fear him.
  • Shireen has suffered from nightmares since she was a baby, often of dragons coming to eat her. Note that Shireen has some Targaryen blood, which may mean her dreams are prophetic. 
  • The wildlings believe that greyscale can never truly go into remission, as maesters believe re childhood greyscale. They claim that child survivors of greyscale can become infectious again, which is why they euthanize anyone who contracts the disease. For this reason, Val refers to Shireen as “the dead girl” and “not clean”, and will not allow Gilly’s baby and his wetnurses to stay in the same building as her.
  • Greyscale is related to water magic, as practiced by the Rhoynar. Patchface survived being drowned for three days, possibly by some form of water magic, and that may also be the source of his prophecies. Note that the being worshipped as the Drowned God may also be a form or source of water magic, so some think Patchface is a prophet of the Drowned God – but I also want to note the pre-old-gods worship of the various water elemental gods (as seen in the story of Durran and Elenei, which happened to be at Storm’s End where Patchface drowned), as well as the Merling King, so the connection may not be as straightforward as all that. But whatever it is, there’s some kind of connection here between all these things, I just don’t know what yet.
  • Last but not least, there’s Dany’s House of the Undying vision, “from a smoking tower, a great stone beast took wing, breathing shadow fire”, which may have nothing to do with any of the above… but “stone” and “shadow” and “fire” say Melisandre to me, so I’d bet that this plot resolves in some way related to that “slayer of lies” vision.

Anyway, what all this evidence tells me is that something really really bad is coming. A friend once theorized that Patchface would “carve Shireen open and let the greyscale out”… but I think it’s even more complex than that, as it doesn’t take into account Melisandre and her stone dragon/king’s blood obsession. I think Melisandre will attempt to sacrifice Shireen – whether she does it with Stannis’s approval (per the show), or whether she does it on her own, believing that Stannis is dead (per the Pink Letter) – whether it’s in TWOW at the Wall, or later at Winterfell during the War for the Dawn (as some have theorized) – I don’t know the details. I can’t know. But if she does, maybe that’s when the Patchface thing will happen? If Shireen burns, perhaps the poor mad fool, seeing one of the few people who was ever kind to him suffering in flames, will attempt to put her out of her misery… and so somehow release the greyscale as a plague in the north, making everything so much worse.

Or maybe not. Maybe I’m getting too specific, too fanficcy, and it’ll happen completely differently. Maybe Melisandre’s interpreting her vision of Patchface incorrectly (as she often does), and he actually is harmless. Maybe Val’s wrong about Shireen and greyscale too. Maybe a greyscale plague, in addition to everything else that’s going to hit the north, is just too much, insult to injury. But I think GRRM spent a lot of time in AFFC and ADWD and TWOIAF talking up the dangers of greyscale, not to mention its magic nature, so yeah, I am betting it could be as bad as all that. Maybe I’m wrong. I can’t be sure until I’m actually reading the book. All I do know for sure is that nothing good can come of this.

They kiss and it’s the reader’s first kiss.

Note: Cute prompt, omg. I love me some Bucky Barnes. I’m just gonna say that the dancing is gonna be swing dancing and the music is Sing, Sing, Sing.

Warnings: None?

“I’m not going out there,” you insisted as you curled the loose tufts of hair that hung from the bun that sat atop your head. Natasha shook her head as she did the clasp on the pearl necklace you were borrowing for the event. Fury was holding a huge charity gala and he made it very clear that attendance was mandatory.

“You’re going out there. Fury’s orders. We all have to,” Natasha said.

“I can’t,”

“You can,” Wanda said, her voice warm. She and Natasha were both wearing red dresses, and not wanting to be the odd one out, so were you. Though, yours was shorter than theirs, only about knee-length. “Everything will be fine,”

“How do you know? You’re a mind reader, not a fortune teller,”

“I have a good feeling,” Wanda nodded knowingly. “I know what is troubling you. Do not fret.”

“Ooh, what’s wrong, (Y/N)?” Natasha asked.

“Bucky…” You trailed off. “I think he hates me or something. I don’t know. He just…he never talks to me or anything.”

“You fell head over heels for the Winter Soldier?” Natasha asked, a smile finding its way onto her lips. “Awwww,”

“Shut it,” you smiled. “I don’t wanna talk about it.”

“Just ask him to dance.” Wanda said. “It is no big deal,”

“Easy for you to say,” You shook your head. “I don’t know…”

“Trust me.” Wanda said, meeting your eyes in the mirror in front of the tree of you. “I would not lie to you.”

“Okay,” you sighed. “I trust you.”

“Good,” Natasha said. “Now let’s get this show on the road.”

Meanwhile, at the party, Tony was being his usual self and indulging in alcoholic beverages.

“So, Rogers, how much you wanna bet Barnes finally goes after (Y/N)?” Tony asked. Steve shrugged.

“He might not even come. He’s that scared that he’s messed things up with her already.” Steve didn’t look thrilled. Tony shook his head.

“Bull. I just saw him walk in,” Tony took a swig of his drink. He pointed to Bucky, who was making his way over to Steve. He was shaky, nervous, not ready for whatever was coming.

“Steve, I don’t think I can do this,” Bucky said right away. His eyes were wide with fear. “She’s not out here yet, right?”

“No, she’s not,” Steve answered, looking around for the girls, who were due to arrive any second now. Bucky took an exasperated breath.

“I’ll just leave you two alone now…” Tony said, walking off.

“Steve, I can’t-”

“Just ask her to dance.” Steve put a hand on Bucky’s shoulder. “Trust me, I have a good feeling about this.”

“Okay,” Bucky took a breath. “Okay…” His eyes trailed upwards towards the grand staircase of the ballroom. There you were, walking down the stairs with Natasha and Wanda. You were just as nervous as him, though you wouldn’t show it. You and the girls walked over to Steve and Bucky. Some of the other guys wandered over to meet you; Pietro and Bruce and Vision, namely.

“H-hi there,” Bucky greeted shyly. “You, uh, you look beautiful,”

“Thanks,” you brushed a lock of hair out of your face as you felt a blush creeping onto your cheeks. Bucky flashed Steve a worried look, but Steve snuck off to the DJ booth. He knew just the thing to get you two out onto the floor.

“Do you, uh…um…” Bucky struggled. “Do you wanna maybe…I don’t know…”

Suddenly, a very familiar tune came over the speakers and something clicked inside Bucky. He knew this song. He knew this dance. He had to get out onto the floor. Now.

“Do you wanna dance?” Bucky asked, a wave of confidence hitting him suddenly. You nodded, unable to get the words out of your mouth. Bucky took your left hand with his left and wrapped his right arm around your waist as he led you out onto the floor. Steve walked back to the group, smiling.

“What did you do?” Natasha asked.

“Bucky’s favorite song,” Steve shrugged. “I knew there was a way to get his confidence back,”

“Follow my lead, alright?” Bucky asked. You nodded, exhilarated by what was about to happen. As soon as the brass came in, Bucky twirled you around, his feet moving faster than lightning, and a broad smile lighting up his face. You hadn’t seen him this happy ever.

You picked up the moves almost instantly, moving in rhythm with the music and keeping up with him. Even rigorous S.H.I.E.L.D. training couldn’t prepare you for this, but you found it was actually somewhat easy to keep up with.

Soon, the song was over, and you and Bucky were left in the middle of the floor, staring at eachother. You were both out of breath.

“It’s kind of hot in here,” You said as everyone in the ballroom applauded you, cheering. You and Bucky were without a doubt the best dancers on the floor. Steve smiled to himself, crossing his arms. His work here was done.

“Wanna um…go outside or something?” Bucky asked. You nodded, intertwining your fingers with his and walking outside into the hotel’s garden. The lavender bushes and cherry blossoms were in full bloom, filling the small garden with their rich, sweet aroma. The stars dotted the night sky like diamonds in the dark velvety mass.

“That was incredible,” you breathed, leaning against the rail of the gazebo. “I didn’t know you could move like that, Buck.”

“Muscle memory, I guess.” Bucky was back to normal, still extremely guarded, quiet. Every time you looked at him, he looked like a deer in headlights.

“Buck, you don’t have to be afraid of me.” You told him softly, putting your hand on top of his.

“I’m not. I’m scared of myself.” he answered, pulling his hand away. “I’m sorry. I should have never let myself get so close to you.”

“Bucky,” You turned to him. “I’m not afraid of you. I don’t care about what you did. That wasn’t you. You couldn’t help it.”

“You don’t know that,”

“Look at me, Bucky.” You put your hands on his shoulders. His eyes wandered, but eventually found yours. He blinked a few times, clenching his jaw.

“I look at you, and I get urges. I can’t control myself.” He huffs, his voice low, and his eyes travelling across your lips.

“Then don’t,” You bit your lip before he grabbed your face and pulled it to his, kissing you passionately, all of his pent up emotion spilling out. It was his first kiss since 1945, and it was your first kiss ever. But if you were being honest, there wasn’t anyone else you’d rather kiss than James Buchannan Barnes.
