Thank you so much for looking forward to my new pieces and enjoying what I do, that legitimately means the world to me as a creator <3
Being able to evoke feelings in others whether it be warm n fuzzy or melancholy and reflective, is honestly all I aspire to do *fist clench* 

Your words keep me fired up to work hard and persevere through all the potholes that come w art blocks/feeling frustrated w my art (because honestly, no matter how long you’ve been drawing for or what your skill level is, art block and fear of stagnation can come atcha at any time)

I hope you have yourself a flippin great weekend Anon, cus you sure made mine a whole lot brighter ;u;

Bambi

Well ive been on a steady diet of nothing but bambisleep for a long time now, and im glad to say its working perfectly. Anytime I hear the trigger, I’m out and Bambi takes control for a while. I’ve kept going to the regular hypnotherapy sessions too, and weve been working on making my mind more “malleable” and receptive, so basically it means that I can handle multiple hyonosis triggers and effects at once. You guys don’t know this, but when I was trying to do a bunch of files at once, they weren’t really working that well because I just couldn’t handle it all at once in my head. Now I can start doing different hypnosis stuff, and have it actually work along with anything else that’s conditioning me. I’ve kept getting more susceptible to spirals and stuff like that, and it keeps getting harder to stay out of trance when I’m just going about my day. Especially in LA, even something like a flashing billboard will make me start going under, and I have to really be careful where I look or I’m just out. Anyways, so I can basically bimbo out whenever I get triggered, which is actually in a way kind of nicer than just being a dummy all the time, but I don’t know if I’m ready to stop trying to be a bimbo all the time just yet. I’m really ditzy and horny a lot of the time now, and it feels really good, but I’m not sure if I should just go full bimbo all the time or stay mostly me so I can try different hyonosis and brainwashing stuff. You guys should really be the ones to decide, I don’t know if I can make a decision. Yikes, I don’t know what else to say, im losing my train of thought just typing this. So yeah, please send me hypnosis and brainwashing and conditioning stuff!!! Anything you want me to use, send it! No matter how weird or crazy it is!! Kisses❤️

Iv been following your page for a while now just trying to get it. I mean, I'm a centerist. I don't see what's wrong with that. When I see what both sides did at VA I think it's wrong. I think it's more wrong for that guy to hit his car into people, but why couldn't you guys let him have his protest. If you didn't like what he had to say why didn't you protest at another location and show peace and love. The retorick from both sides is scary. What do I tell my daughter?!

Anyway, here’s a really good recipe for some chocolate chip treasure cookies:

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 ½ cups graham cracker crumbs (about 6.5 ounces/13 rectangle crackers)
  • ½ cup (2.5 ounces) flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 14-ounce can sweetened condensed milk
  • ½ cup (4 ounces, 8 tablespoons) butter, room temperature
  • 1 1/3 cups (4 ounces) sweetened, shredded coconut or ¾ cup (3 ounces) old-fashioned oats
  • 2 cups (12 ounces) semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1 cup walnuts or other nuts, chopped (optional)

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (see note above).
  2. In a small bowl, add the graham cracker crumbs, flour, baking powder and salt. Whisk to combine.
  3. In a large bowl with a handheld electric mixer or a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment (or by hand with a spoon), beat the sweetened condensed milk and butter until smooth and creamy, 1-2 minutes.
  4. Add the dry ingredients; mix until mostly combined. It’s ok if a few dry streaks remain.
  5. Stir in the chocolate chips, coconut, and nuts (if using).
  6. Drop the cookie dough by rounded tablespoons onto ungreased cookie sheets.
  7. Bake for 8-10 minutes.
  8. Let the cookie rest on the baking sheet for 1-2 minutes before removing to cool completely on a wire rack.

hey guys! I just wanted to make a post on something ive been meaning to get on the topic of for a while since its pride month and now seems like a relevant time

i wanna clarify i have voiced my opinion on my sideblog before but realize ive kinda done so poorly so i want to word this very clearly and carefully and do so on this blog.

i dont believe aces and aros belong in the acronym lgbt. this does not mean All aces and aros should be discluded from lgbt communities of course, just that being ace/aro doesnt immedietly make you lgbt (like if you are a cishet aro/ace or a cis aroace, you shouldnt use words like q/eer or gay to describe yourself. if you are ace/aro and also trans/gay/what have u, u are still lgbt of course) lgbt people have the right to be uncomfortable with cishet people using community exclusive terms for themselves considering a lot of those terms are slurs aimed specifically at gay and trans people.

im not saying there arent problems people face being ace or aro, but I think its a complicated and different set of problems compared to being l,g,b,t and etc. i think it would make sense if aces and aros had a community separately but of course, once again, being ace or aro doesnt mean you arent Also lgbt.

i dont think the split attractions model is something everyone should be forced to use for themselves and calling people allos is homophobic and harmful. at age 15 I felt obligated to put “panromantic+pansexual” in my bio even though I shouldnt have to tell people I feel sexual attraction at that young (really, nobody should Have to specify anything about their sex life publicly at any age). calling people allos is grouping gay people with straight people as the same “dirty sex lovers”, it should be obvious why this is unsavory.

i made this post because frankly im a little tired of being called an ‘aphobe’ and being accused of wanting to kick gay/trans aros/aces out of lgbt spaces. pls feel free to send me an ask if u have any questions but please be nice about it. okay, now back to regularly scheduled pokemans :P

So, admittedly I had forgotten today was the day bleach ended, and it occurred to me in a sort of existential heap that that means that over a year ago today i first contemplated actually… joining… a fandom?! Wild thought, I know. But here’s a thank you. I’ve written a bit of a warm up drabble-esque …thing. I haven’t brushed up on writing in a while now, but I hope you take some enjoyment from it nonetheless. Also, here is a bop.

Bleach. Ichiruki. Post TYBW. Inspired by the lovely @kingkuchiki.

“Rukia… Kuchiki.” He tests it on his tongue, as he has done religiously for the best part of his non-existence.

But see, it becomes an entirely different thing when post war reconciliations turn muscles to honey and vision to soft, corrosive haze. Because god- he had thought this their swan song, and so the possibility of several thousand more swan songs passing - or perhaps the sheer delight in his naivety to it all - sends his voice carding just a little lighter through the air.

Rukia rewards him with a kiss to his lips and an oozing hug. He is not quite sure where the remnants of his shihakushō end and the ribbons of Hakka no Togame wither, though he is entirely sure that he does not mind.

She is beating in his view like a bird, like a kaleidoscope of ice, spiralling unfathomably tall. White blush. Flickering light. Gorgeous ocean eyes- heating, heating, heating his gut. Her bankai is truly stunning, he doesn’t think he’s ever seen it look more beautiful than now, fragmented by his lashes and his lazy slitted-view. He reaches out his hand to her cheek, and smiles.

“We did it.” Her voice is the cusp of a wave, rasping with fatigue and battle-field grit; flooding oh so cooly into his senses. Her crown jewels shimmer, depositing ice onto his face.

      She laughs at the way his nose scrunches.

He laughs, picturing Ywach, shrivelled up to nothing - void - and their future so bright and full and bursting in retaliation - as much as the soaring in his chest. 

Rukia is so wonderfully alive that he almost mistakes the heat of the sun for a phoenix.

Definition and Redefinition of Racism

- And how every one using the “new” version is a fucking moron : The lengthy post explaining the idiocy behind the idiots…

Ok so ive been meaning to do this for a while now. As most people following me know, there is an alternative definition of racism often used by the Social Justice crowd and you can probably guess where this block of text is going.

For completion, here are the definitions ill be referring to. 

Oxford Dictionary:

Merriam Webster:

The above are what ill be refering to as the “original” definition of racism. This is the one recognised in law and corporations. This is the one most people in society know and also translates near identically into any other language to the same meaning. The “New” definition proposed by Social Justice people and some sociology academics is often seen in shorthand as:

Power + Prejudice = Racism

Now i would love to quote an officially source for this but no one with the credibility to be considered “official” even touches this definition with a 10ft barge pole for good reason as we will see as i continue.

Collectivism

First problem is the defining of power in this context, they are referring to collectivist societal power often displayed with a pyramid diagram with the straight, white, male, cis, able bodied, “neurotypical” person at the top and for every one of these words you lose you go down a tier of power. This issue here is partly that its a blindly collectivist mindset that treats every one as nothing more than a sum of their arbitrary characteristics and nothing more. The other issue is that is ignored the actual power an individual has. We live, here in the western world, in a time where equality of opportunity is written into law and any one abusing anyone else because of these arbitrary characteristics can be legally crushed into the dirt. Ive spoken about collectivism in length in the past so we will leave this here for now.

Lets do a little thought experiment. 

A black individual walks into a park and is stopped by the groundskeepers who inform him of a policy to not allow black people into the park. By both definitions this is racist. An individual has been discriminated against because of the colour of their skin. The effect is that the person has been denied access to a public space, effectively oppressing their movement and free will.

A white individual walks into a park and is stopped by the groundskeepers who inform him of a policy to not allow white people into the park. By the original definition this is racist. An individual has been discriminated against because of the colour of their skin. The effect is that the person has been denied access to a public space, effectively oppressing their movement and free will. By the new definition of racism this is merely prejudice, a lesser action. Because of the subjective power the white person has, they have experienced a lesser injustice even though they have no power in the situation and is being oppressed by the groundskeepers and policy makers just the same.

Racism > Prejudice

The end result is that while both people in the situation above received the same restrictive injustice, if the new definition is to be made official it means that despite being identical in situation, power and oppression in this case, the black person gets priority treatment because they are a victim of racism, how awful we must campaign now! Meanwhile the white person is merely a victim of prejudice and in the context of social justice this is far further down the list of importance. The end result is that two people, in identical situations are going to be treated differently because of the colour of their skin. By the original definition of racism, the new definition is racist… The white person, who has had his movements and free will oppressed, is being met with a further societal negligence thus, by the new definition of racism… The new definition of racism is racist.

Good fucking job on your social justice application of mental gymnastics to create a new meaning of a word that worked just fine that is self defeating and inherently useless. The end result is that we now have a way to instantly identify brain dead racists hiding under the banner of social justice.

“It’s me, Ryan,” Gavin cries, and his voice is breaking a little, but his eyes are furious, “How could you think I’d ever hurt you? Could ever betray you like… like that-”

“Because I never thought you’d do this,”

I FINALLY DID IT *dies on floor* major thanks to angel for helping me with this <3

But yes Trust is an amazing story you should all read!  ive been a huge fan of Whalehuntingboyfreinds work and looking forward to every new update that i had to make fanart since ive been meaning too for a while >w<

Now to cry over feels and wait for the next chapter

title: how to get a boyfriend: a comprehensive guide by kuroo tetsurou
fandom: haikyuu!!
pairing: kurodai
word count: 2311
summary: kuroo asks daichi out thru texts, then regrets it: the fic

for @maskyoursmile! i hope this is everything that u wanted!!

here on ao3


Daichi lets out a long, relieved sigh as he finally finishes his homework for the weekend. It’s only Friday, but he’s always found it much easier to do all of his homework as soon as he gets home from school instead of leaving it until Sunday night. It makes it a lot easier to enjoy his weekend, he finds, so even though the guys poke fun at him for it, he sticks to his routine because it’s something that works for him.

After a nice stretch of his arms and spine that leaves his bones feeling pleasantly melty, he reaches for his phone. He always turns it on silent and leaves it facedown while he does his homework to avoid any distractions, but Suga always sends him messages anyway so he figures he should probably check them and get back to him.

When he turns his phone over, however, he finds the screen flashing with an incoming call from Kuroo Tetsurou.

okay i started reading a book today and its like i was MEANT TO FIND IT…

cos heres how it broke down, after reading that holly black book, i went to rate it on good reads, and this book was suggested to me. i only saw the cover, but the cover alone is the reason i was like ‘ill read that’ and added it to my list:


those of you that have been around for a minute will know that whitewashing is my petpeeve, and that whitewashing book covers is an important subset of this. if theres a poc in the book, and they SHOW HER ON THE COVER, that book automatically gets my full focus (this is how i read another book ive been meaning to rec to yall), because while the trend in YA novels right now is to have white girls posing vaguely on the covers, youll know a book has a poc protag because they conveniently do not show a person on the cover

but this shit right here???? unambiguously a black girl with beautiful natural hair and a GORGEOUS cover and i fell in love right away

so, i saw this on good reads right before heading to work. and when i get there? this book has been put on display and i almost lose it lmao, im like YES. i literally dont know what this book is about, so i grab a copy from the display and sneak some peeks at it during slow times on the selling floor

turns out this book is literally about an afro-latina girl, a MIXED GIRL!! who is a painter turned street artist. this book is based in carribean folklore (yall know i love faerie shit but im always thirsty for non-european folklore in modern fantasy novels) and whats more??

anika noni rose (who, if you dont know, is the va for PRINCESS TIANA my hero ) literally is the first quote on the back of the book, with this raving review:

“I love this book for the richness of its culture, the strength of the characters, the humor and the truth of its language. Sierra is the heroine we’ve been waiting for – a pretty, brown-skinned Latina artist who is smart, strong, inventive, and unsure, all the while being heroic. Daniel José Older is one of my favorite new voices, and I can’t wait to see what he (and Sierra) come up with next.”

so im like, beside myself. i brought it home today and im already liking it a lot. im only 20 pages in and heres some facts:

  • introduced to several named characters, all of which are unambiguously poc with diverse presentation
  • the protagonist is a mixed black/latin@ girl, who wears her hair naturally in an afro and has a strong sense of community
  • her crew is all girls at this point
  • two of which are a poc lesbian couple!!!!!!!!!! (one half of which is a talented freestyle rapper)
  • the male lead is an artsy boy from haiti who seems sweet (and not creepy and forceful like ya male leads tend to be)
  • they talk to each other in casual aave that doesnt seem awkward and forced
  • painting and street art are an integral part of this story, as well as a sense of community (no convenient parental neglect so these teen protags can run around and do whatever while being strangely isolated)
  • im pretty sure the antagonist is gonna be a white guy that is a professor on their culture trying to claim their ancestor-art-magic and appropriate it for his own gain

im literally beside myself, i cant believe this book is a front of the line, mainstream novel. its (somewhat unfortunately) touted as cassandra clare meets carribean culture, but im hoping that this author takes off and claims a corner all his own without having to be defined by a mainstream white authors style

my hopes are so high i literally dont think theres a way for this book to disappoint me.

hey amanda, my african grey snoopy passed away last night and ive taken it hard. how do you cope with loss of pets? i dont mean to put you on the spot. you and your lil birb family bring me a lot of happiness <3

I’m so sorry that’s happened. I know that’s difficult to deal with and I know there’s not much I can say that will make it easier. It’s been a while since I’ve lost any pets. It’s hard, but try to remember that at least your birb had a good home and human. It’s difficult now, but it will get easier as time goes on. Sad memories hopefully fade a bit, but the happy ones stay.

I’m sorry I don’t have more to say. And I’m really sorry that your friend passed on. I’ll be thinking of you.
