Tome Kurata, the only girl in the city who gets neuralyzed thrice a week 

she manages

I have been sick and I still have a blocked nose that doesn’t want to go away. I am carrying my nasal spray everywhere. Remember my sick week essentials? It’s the same one. Yeah, it’s that good. But the point is, I am having a hard time focusing, and I have been working on this review for a while. But it is finally here! So, say hello to the wonderful Heart & Hands Tarot by Liz Blackbird, a deck which was completed over the course of ten years!

Aside from how beautiful it is (and it is easy to get stuck on saying beautiful all over again when admiring it), there are two features that immediately capture the attention: one is the big size, as these are the largest tarot cards I have. The other one is its contrasting, intricate, black and white art. There is a lot going on each card, a lot to look at; but it’s not busy or overwhelming, on the contrary, it makes the deck alive. The cards draw you in, they are very eye catching and special. At first, you see each card as a whole piece, which it is, but after looking at them long enough you start discovering stuff you’d missed the first time, and it’s like one element guides you to another. I feel there is a hidden path on each card, and I kid you not, they made me think about a connect the dots puzzle in the best way possible.

The cards are striking and fascinating. There are lots of hands, patterns, plants, suit symbols, and some people. They have a lot of movement, and this is emphasized by the fact that the art spills over the image “limits” and goes into the wide white borders, like they break through them. I love this effect and how well it’s made because it’s like you feel the cards must do that. The backs are gorgeous too, and have lots of flowers and eyes. I could not pick only one to be my favourite, but I must say I definitely love the cups suit. It was really difficult to pick just a few for the review, and even then I feel the pictures do no justice because of the details and the intricacy of the design.

They come in a custom tuck box which matches the extra card that acts as a deck cover. It has a companion leaflet, with meanings (keywords) extracted from Mary K. Greer’s 21 Ways to Read a Tarot Card and the celtic cross layout. And there’s also an extra organza bag, which I feel it’s the perfect final touch for the contrasting, b&w effect.

The Heart & Hands Tarot deck is glorious. It’s not only beautiful, but also exuberant, joyful, alive. In my opinion, the large format is absolutely necessary to avoid missing the many details that Liz has included on each card. As I always say, decks in general are great for art lovers, but I have found that this deck is particularly good for meditation as there is so so much to think about and discover.

Why I believe NaLi was mashima’s original plan

after nearly a year i finally manage to bring forward some motivation to create this extremely procrastinated post. so buckle up kids and sit tight as i practically retell ft and connect the dots to nali.

*UPDATE*

if you havent already heard mashima admitted he had no intention to pair off natsu and lucy and is only considering it as of very recently (even as far as tartaros romantic!nalu was nowhere on mashima’s agenda). this only strengthens my argument that nali was probably his original idea and as i’ve been saying for a while nalu wasnt planned and is only there for fanservice if the writing didnt do enough talking.

warning: this is very long.

lets start off with the introduction of lisanna

Natsume week, day 5, Ten years later

I’m sorry this one is so small, I didn’t have time for this one at all ;-;

@natsumeweek


“Teacher! Teacher!” A small boy pulled his teacher’s shirt with his small hand, getting him to look towards the direction the boy wanted. Another child was trying to get the teacher’s attention herself. The rowdy kindergarten’s substitute teacher was popular amongst the children, mostly because of his fat cat, the one every kid loved to play with. He was very good at drawing too, and he regularly printed out drawings for the kids, asking them to fill in colors or connect dots. He loved them all, even though he used to think he was very bad with children. Working as a teacher in his town, the town he never wanted to leave, seemed like a dream to him, even though it was nothing more than mere coincidences. He was happy with the way things turned out. He prayed that they would stay the same forever. He prayed his wish could come true, as he was being pulled around by small hands and warm voices…

Without and. Why are there so many freckles on my left arm, like a constellation, like a city at night from an airplane, when I was a kid I would connect the dots to make a kite. Only one on my right. Thinking about my grandparents coukoo clocks. No mantle. You cut a slit in bottom of your jeans so they can rest differently. Less restricted. As you sleep missing a phone call on the train

Warnings: Slight mentions of smut. 

Summary: Pietro takes you and Nathaniel around town and the three of you have a big day together with hot chocolate and snowball fights. 

A/N: This is going to be super fluffy!! I hope you all enjoy! Also I got some ideas for it from @luv4fandoms! She’s a great writer and awesome friend! Also I do mention Chanukah at some point in this story because Wanda and Pietro are Jewish, and I’m sorry if I spell it wrong, I am not Jewish so I don’t know that much about the Holiday or it’s spelling and I did look it up on google but I’m worried it might still be wrong so please don’t be offended if I made a mistake it was not my intention. 


The next time you opened your eyes you were in front of a diner. You looked in your arms and found Nathaniel staring at the two of you wide eyed and his hair all messy as well as yours. “That was awesome!” Nathaniel shouts. You laugh at him and Pietro smiles. “Can we do that again?” He asks Pietro and tugs on his shirt. Pietro sets the two of you down and you let Nathaniel down on the ground. 

“Maybe later.” Pietro says and Nathaniel smiles at him and Pietro takes his little hand in his big calloused one and he leads you both inside the diner. 

“Hey Pietro!” The owner calls to him and Pietro smiles and strides over to the counter. The two of them have a quick bro hug and then Nathaniel gets entranced by the fish tank and pulls you over to it so he can show you how he can name all the fish since he watched Finding Nemo. “I’ve been waiting for you to come back.” He tells Pietro. “Ever since you saved my family and this diner from that awful fire last year I thought we would keep in touch more often.” 

“Yeah I’m sorry Marcus, well I got busy with the team and couldn’t find the time. But I figured since it is the Holidays I should come by and see how things are going.” Pietro says. 

“Hey you’re welcome back any time.” Marcus says and then looks over to you and Nathaniel. “I see you brought your wife and kid?” Pietro smirks and stares at the ground and shakes his head. 

“She’s not my wife and he’s not my kid.” He says and blushes a bit. 

“Girlfriend and her son?” Marcus asks and Pietro shakes his head and Marcus looks confused. 

“Girl I have a crush on and my friend Clint’s son.” Pietro says and Marcus nods. 

“Oh, well you guys make a cute family.” Marcus jokes and then Nathaniel runs over and grabs Pietro’s leg.

I love the idea of Jack and Bitty being parents but Patater being parents and going to their kid’s first elementary school Open House night is also a guilty pleasure. I like to think that being with Tater has really mellowed Parse out in that he’s still aloof asshole to the world but never to his family. Their kid would be waiting in the classroom by himself because his parents are a little late because of traffic, and his teacher is about to approach him because she feels bad and is lowkey annoyed that this kid’s parents didn’t even bother to show up until Tater comes from nowhere and swoops his kid up into his arms, apologizing for being late and basically being a loud and larger-than-life embarrassing dad, the biggest Dad to ever Dad. Parse takes off his sunglasses, ruffles his kid’s hair, and blows kisses on their cheeks with the kid going, “Dad stop I’m in first grade now sTOP.” Tater would definitely let their kid ride on his shoulders and be so damn impressed at his kid’s artwork hanging on the wall because his art skills are very minimal (”Kenny our kid is so talented” “Tater, you’ve said that three times. But yes I agree”). And when Tater finally lets their kid down he would hook his arms around Parse, and Parse would fit next to him automatically.  

BONUS - The parents and teachers are so shocked/starstuck at the Tater and Parson’s appearance (y’all know they went all out with the suits and the watches and the gold chain they are so extra) like for some reason they never connected the dots (their kid draws their Pa as a potato sometimes and says his parents play sports as a job so everyone just thought it meant that they work at home or something). It takes them fifteen extra minutes to leave the school because everyone wanted autographs and photos. 

The media is in instant “lone wolf” white privilege mode. This shit is soooooo predictable. Interesting how these crimes are on the rise, but are never connected with a larger narrative. Who could ever connect the dots? They will sooner say white kids with bowl cuts are danderous than mention racism, white terror or white terror as institution across society.

Hand-drawn by Kid Cudi, the Indicud logo is prominent on each cap. Cudi wanted each letter to be unique and different.

The ‘brain lining’ on each piece illustrates Cudi’s thoughts, featuring some of his favorite lyrics.

The space brim connects the dots to the Kid Cudi brand as a staple in all of his creations. Cudi also wanted to stray from the traditional undervisor to make it unique.

To further authenticate the collection, the Cudder Approved logo, hand-drawn by Kid Cudi, as well as Cudi’s orbit insignia were added to make every piece in the collection cohesive.

Mr Bendis. I volunteer to teach reading to a group of disadvantaged kids, and after their homework as a treat we read Ultimate Spider-Man because they love it and it's my favorite comic. They get sad when something bad happens to a character and I tell them "That character is only in a book. The writer wanted us to learn something from what happened to him." We're almost at Peter's death and I can't figure out what to tell them. Im thinking self-sacrifice but I wanted your blessing. Thanks.

Boy, that is a tough one. First of all God bless you for spending your time helping other people. And I’m truly honored that you would use my work in your lofty pursuit

And most people do learn the facts of life and by that I mean life-and-death and all that from stories. Most people learned about death from Bambi’s mom or finding Nemo’s family. I guess it’s entirely your call you know these kids and probably have a good sense of what they can handle

I would tell you just say to them that it’s only a story but being a parent I know that that line never works. Kids immediately start to connect the dots between the fictional tragedy and a real one that they have witnessed or felt
