“This is our home now, so you’ll learn to start to call me by my name. Not Marsha. Not Dear. Not Honey. Maggie. Maggie Rhee.

So, here goes, my second reinterpretation of an AOW comic book cover. Issue #124…with a most important addition that was missing in the originals.

As usual:***Please reblog, DO NOT repost / crop / edit / tweet / instagram or claim as your own. Thank you!***

Ayy. You aware that the full quote is "jack of all trades, master of none, but better than a master of one" right?

Hey! Yeah, I mean, that’s a variant. The term “jack of all trades” came first, and the “master of none” part was probably added later. The full quote, later still. See wikipedia.

Personally, I like the idea so much, that I don’t need to think of it as “better” to espouse it. Like, the famous Heinlein quote?

A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, conn a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, die gallantly. Specialization is for insects.

I’m drawn to it, sure, but the “should” kinda spoils it. It doesn’t have to be so… militant. I don’t dig jacks of all trades because they’re better, I dig them because they’re cool, and I’m even fine with the (often realistically…) derogatory aspect of it: it really is possible to dabble in a thousand things and suck at most of them. TRUST ME ON THAT. :p

And still I’m into it, and that’s why I picked “Jack of all trades, master of none” as a motto for this blog. It’s just perfect in its imperfection. :)

P.S. And also because, in wide contrast with Heinlein’s insidious love for hierarchies (“take orders, give orders”, hah, he usually hides it so well in his novels, but it’s always there if you look close enough, and here it’s just glaring), the “master of none” part has a double meaning for me. It translates to this:

My teenage self would be SO proud. *grins*

  • Shinya: Hey, Mahiru. I met that Guren guy you've talked so much about.
  • Mahiru: Really? How is he? He is just as amazing as I told you, right? <3
  • Shinya: Yes, I see why you like him so much. He is, um, veeery interesting... Hehehe.~ <3
  • Shinya: *Looks dreamily at the sky*
  • Mahiru: ...
  • Mahiru: Shinya.
  • Mahiru: Wait wut.
  • Mahiru: Shinya. No.
  • Mahiru: Shinya, plz. No.
Been Searching High And Low For This- I See You've Been Focusing On The 'High'

Ayyy it’s me again!

I just really wanted to do something fluffy, so today I’ve been bashing out some more fic in the groupchat based on a convo I had with the wonderful @kieren-fucking-walker- I’m glad you’ve been dragged headfirst into this fandom darling, it’s bloody nice to have you here <3

This is basically fluff fluff fluff, with a tiny bit of Dirk-typical low self-esteem/disbelief, and uh… lots of weed. Idk what to tell you, Todd’s a fucking stoner and I’ve got receipts.

Anyway, enjoy! <3

(read on Ao3)


Dirk had learned quite a long time ago that Todd wasn’t much of a phone-answerer. Sometimes Dirk wondered why he even carried the blasted thing if he had no intention of using it as anything more than an expensive pocket-filler slash paperweight. Dirk was quite used to it by now, but that didn’t make it any less frustrating when Todd had his little uncommunicative spells when Dirk had important questions to ask him.

Such as: is three weeks too out of date for milk to be usable?

Sticky Notes
Pairing: TodoDeku
Rating: Teen
Word Count: 13k
Summary:
He spends the entire week that they have to prepare the assignment watching Todoroki. Between Todoroki and his friends from kickboxing club the entire week flies by in positive interpersonal interactions. It’s like a dream. The only bad things are Katsuki, who’s still Izuku’s neighbor and still takes time out of his day to flip Izuku off when Izuku enters the common areas, and Izuku’s roommate, who is still absent.

They still leave notes for each other; please don’t leave your things on my desk, please pick up your laundry, you left your radio on again. None of the notes are personal. Izuku thought that last weekend was just a fluke, that he’d run into his roommate this weekend, but the whole weekend passes and Izuku is forced to leave a note apologizing that he had to borrow a pen from the cup on his roommate’s desk.

Here it is! I managed to get it done tonight, against all odds. Part one of the awaited Sticky Notes is done. I hope everyone who asked me about it or said they were excited to read it enjoys it and I will work hard to bring you the second part as soon as I can.

The tag for Bakugou being a bully is because I know a lot of people have a really soft spot for him and hate when he’s portrayed without redeeming qualities. In this particular fic Izuku is not privy to Bakugou’s redeeming qualities so I thought I would warn that he’s basically just a bully so people who don’t like that don’t have to read it. This author has nothing against Bakugou as a character, promise.

Want to design a house for your characters?

Just use the Sims. (Sims 3 in this case.) 

The house looks bland as all hell from the outside but it was supposed to be an apartment in canon so whatever works. I also didn’t bother making the beds the “right color”. Really I just wanted an overview. 

The little potted plant in front of the TV is supposed to be Seedling Morty X3 
Since I don’t have any sims living here I guess he’s the only occupant in Sims-land… (I actually did make the family in the Sims 3 but they’re currently living it up in a much larger house, cuz I really don’t like playing a large family in a tiny house… they keep arguing over who gets to use the bathroom and getting stuck in doors. Its extremely frustrating.)

Haven’t you seen something more graceful?

I mean the guys, not the drawing. That is… ok.

Also, this also fulfills the topic of the musinktober topic of this day: “But not because we’re gay!” (Of course those two are, just… not for each other.) These is one of my favorite BrOTP and is a shame there isn’t tons of content of this. Well.

Pd. Also just wanna say I used as references the unfamous tux Mike used to the Tonys and the suit George used during the drama desk awards where he was nominated!
