let's go and have the world

Honestly, I’m happy to have more of the mass effect universe. I love mass effect. But it’s the same as with fallout 4, more of a creative world that I like but the game itself having a lot of disappointments and issues because it’s not what it could’ve been. I’m let down and am going to call out flaws, but I’m still gonna play it and mostly enjoy that at least there’s more to experience even if Bioware dropped the ball a bit on a lot of fronts which is fun to call out.

The Flash music: Westallen in ‘Duet’

HEY Y’ALL! Have we all recovered yet? Who’s still shook? Who already knows all the words to ‘Runnin’ Home to You’? Ha, trick question, I know everybody already knows every single note of the song already, myself included.

So I’ve been asked to talk about the music from the musical (and let’s not lie, I love it lol), and what it means for Westallen. I’m choosing to write this now because A) I met all my fuckin’ deadlines today so I actually have time to write now B) I have finally stopped fangirling over the episode enough for this to not be incoherent shrieking over all the sheer perfection.

I’m going to do this in two parts, talking about two specific moments - when Cisco vibes Iris and Mon-El to the musical world, and the proposal at the end. I doubt there are more substantial WA moments that more important than those two in this episode.

TW for Mon-El shade, because he is bland and terrible. Also, I swear a little.

LET’S RIDE!

anonymous asked:

Ha, if Riskua and Ace get married / have an actual ceremony (pirate version of course) can you imagine the guest list? Like, the Red Hairs and Whitebeards are this close to getting into a free for all while their captains are having a drinking contest that devolves into a Dad-Off. Someone needs to keep stopping Mihawk and Zoro from deciding to have their next duel at the venue. Sabo's taking blackmail pics of everyone. And then Garp decides to gatecrash cause its his precious grandkids wedding.

It’s the one meeting of the World’s most wanted and the Marines are so twitchy but they can’t do a damn thing about it. Because the Red Hair Pirates and the Whitebeards are bad enough, but the Revolutionaries too? (Dragon’s daughter as adopted via Luffy’s declaration of siblinghood?) The entire Strawhats Armada has turned up, along with their begruding allies. (“Let go of me, Strawhat-ya!” “But Traffy, ‘Skua said to bring a date!” “And you immediately thought of me?!” “And you thought of him?!” “Oh! Hiya, Sabo!” “…good day, Revolutionary-ya.”)

And Mihawk has ferried Shanks’ wifey all the way over the oceans to join in, all the while alternating between giving Ace the evil eye and Zoro a disappointed scowl. Even Boa Hancock is there to see her future sister-in-law beloved Luffy’s sister be married.

Ace’s so nervous he falls asleep three times and Marco has to carry him to the ceremony. Lucky he wakes up just before he’s due to take his place.

Shanks weeps when he sees Riskua in her dress, repeatedly asking if she’s sure about this and it’s not too late to run, that she’s always welcome on the Red Force. Riskua just laughs and wonders how this became her life.

Meanwhile Sanji alternates between balling his eyes out for Riskua who’s about to get hitched suppressing his own experience with weddings and determinedly creating the greatest wedding buffet to ever exist. Only the best for the Strawhats’ Goddess of the Sea. (He also made the cake, which becomes a thing of legend among pirate chefs hundreds of years later)

anonymous asked:

i guess i would expect somebody who has struggled bc of a gendered society be less gender enforcing on their child? like i'm surprised you and your partner aren't going gender neutral and letting your kiddo pick their gender(s) as they grow

???? How are we enforcing gender on our child?

Look, a great majority of the world is cisgender. It’s a fact. So saying ‘we’re having a girl/boy and this is a girl’s/boy’s name that we like’ is pretty much??? Not a big deal. I dislike parents who use 'they/them’ for their child because they are then forcing that child to question their gender in order to 'pick’ pronouns, when they may not have ever needed to question their gender. Gender discovery should be something that comes naturally if the child feels inclined.

Saying 'this is my son/daughter’ isn’t imposing gender on them. Colour coding your infants, telling children they can’t play with certain toys or participate in certain activities due to their assigned gender is imposing gender on them.

Shockingly the world is not as open-minded as tumblr thinks. I’m not setting my child up to be ridiculed and constantly asked about their gender if I can help it. I will support my child whatever gender or sexuality they eventually identify as.

{SIGN up sheet} Next Friday. March 31st. 7EST. #HuluSaveGmw  Twitter Hashtag Flooding! :)

We should all go on to try and “@hulu” and “@Hulu_Support”. For one hour. Things have become quite quiet- but they shouldn’t be. They should be as loud as ever now. 

Reblog this with your twitter name, let’s see how many are ready for next Friday- How many people haven’t given up, and it might just give the ones who have given up that little push that they need to believe again.

I’ll start off first! 

MissAntlers” On twitter : )

hey anyone noticed

So Saturnz Barz, Gorillaz are in a spooky place, blue thing comes out of nowhere and sings, song plays, song ends, SUNNY AS FUCK, “Let’s go get breakfast” everything is normal now.

Clint Eastwood, Gorillaz are in a spooky place, del (he’s also blue) comes out of nowhere and raps, song plays, song ends, SUNNY AS FUCK AGAIN, everythings all normal now.

Saturnz Barz: 2017

Clint Eastwood: 2001 (Around that I guess)

16 years…

does that mean gorillaz have the power just to make everything sunshine by playing a song during what is possibly the end of the world

I’ve been puzzled ...

As time has passed, in recent years, and “Austerity measures” have become the go-to policy around the world, I’ve been increasingly puzzled by “fiscal conservatives’” insistence on punishing the poor for being poor. How many years, generations, centuries, have those policies been tried? They’ve never actually worked at eliminating, or even lessening, poverty.

And I mean: it doesn’t even make sense. Let those in the “Surplus Population” die off, and all you get is a depopulated world.

And then, the other day, the penny finally dropped:

The ultra-wealthy have convinced themselves that they’ve earned their wealth by being “virtuous” and “deserving.”

And the only way that paradigm can be maintained is if the poor must, therefore, be wicked and undeserving. And wicked, undeserving, people must be punished.

If the wealthy power-brokers who lobby for and enforce these policies let themselves admit, even for a moment, that someone who needs food stamps to put dinner on the table has done nothing wrong, except run into bad luck, then they also have to admit that their wealth is also a product of luck, and not righteousness.

Hot Spot

Imagine your OTP sitting next to each other at a lunch table. Person A slides their hand over to person B’s thigh, moving closer to the ‘hot spot’ with each rub. B gets really shifty while A’s doing it and people ask if B’s okay multiple times, while A’s just grinning. You decide what happens next.

“Hey little sis. What’s up?”

“Hi Val. Do you have time in that busy schedule for a quick dinner with me tonight? I know you’ll be at the studio all day tomorrow. I just wanted some time with you before the show starts and then you will be across the world all the time and…”

“Whoa there Laurie. Of course, I’ll meet you for dinner. Where do you want to go?”

“Oh good. Yay! Let’s go to the diner right near the studio so you aren’t too far. You’re going to bring Jenna, right? You know, now that you came to your senses and fixed things.”

“I’ll ask her.”

“Good. You know I like her a lot for you Val.”

“I know you do. I like her a lot too. Always have. I’ll text you when I hear from Jenna. What time?”

“I can be there within a half hour but whenever you can get out.”

“Half hour sounds good. I’ll see you soon little sis.”

“Yay! See you soon” Laurie says with a giggle. “You better have Jenna with you” she says just before she hangs up, not giving Val a chance to respond.

Viktor’s Final Goodbye to Figure Skating: Two Yuris and Two World Records

Alternatively titled: English Major With Nothing Better To Do With Her Life Overanalyzes Things (finals??? haha what are those)

Now, for the sake of sparing you time because this meta is going to get long as hell, here’s the gist right now: I’m thinking 1. Yuuri’s going to take Viktor’s World Record in the Free Skate and 2. Viktor’s never going to go back to competitive skating again. 

Now, am I right about this? Who the fuck knows! Is that going to stop me from writing a god damn essay about it? No. No it is not. So. Let’s begin:

Okay, so I know people have talked about it before (a lot), but the OP is the crowning jewel of both this show and my theory, so bear with me. 

One of the most interesting things about the OP is that, despite being sung by one singer, it’s generally agreed that the different parts of the OP are “sung” by different characters. The OP starts off with someone talking about how they’re “tired of feeling” like they’re “never enough,” and Yuuri’s shown on screen. Then, Viktor shows up on screen and the lyrics are about encouraging someone to believe in themselves. That is, Viktor encouraging Yuuri to believe in himself. Basically, the main idea here is that skater on screen = who’s singing the current lyrics.

SO THEN:

Yuri shows up! And Yuuri’s on screen with him! And the lines are “Don’t stop us now, the moment of truth, we were born to make history.”

There are two singers in this part! In fact, go listen to the song right now and you’ll notice that there are literally two singers in this part (a background vocalist joins in on this line). So the “we” is Yuri and Yuuri, and they’re both singing about how they’re going to “make history” during “the moment of truth” (aka the Grand Prix Finals). 

Well, guess who just made history by blasting Viktor Nikiforov’s SP record out of the water?

Earth is basically a fantasy world with an overzealous writer

Writer: “Hey, can I show you my new fantasy world?” 

Editor: “Sure, let me take a look…” 

Writer: “Thanks! I’d love to know what you think.” 

Editor: “Wait, I’m confused. Where’s the habitable zone? It looks like you’ve got lifeforms covering the entire planet.” 

Writer: “Oh right, so this is cool. The idea is that this world actually rotates as it orbits its nearby star, so instead of having a dark side and a light side with a habitable zone in the middle, both sides go through a constant light/dark cycle, making it so the whole planet is a habitable zone! Neat, huh?” 

Editor: “Huh, that’s… an interesting idea. But, it looks like you’ve got animals and cultures in different climates too. How does that work if the whole world is being evenly heated rotisserie-style?” 

Writer: “I’m glad you asked! See, the rotation of this world actually spins on a kind of tilted axis that oscillates back and forth. This makes the heating more even towards the middle, while the top and the bottom have more extreme climate fluctuations.” 

Editor: “I gotta be honest, this whole climate system seems needlessly complicated. Plus, you’ve got populations living thousands of miles inland. Do you realize that keeping everything hydrated would take an impossible amount of irrigation resources?” 

Writer: “Yeah, yeah! I thought of that too! It works because the air on this world is full of invisible dust particles, so when water evaporates there it condensates on the dust and accumulates into these HUGE floating bodies of water, which drift around everywhere and-” 

Editor: “Stop, just stop, OK? Look, using one or two of these ideas could be neat, but nobody’s going to take you seriously if you keep cramming in more and more crazy stuff like this. You need to tone it down a bit.” 

Writer: “…” 

Writer: “So can I tell you about the cool magnetic force field?” 

Editor: *sigh* 

My advice for baby witches!

Here is a ton of stuff I wish someone told me 7 years ago.

  • You do not have to be Wiccan.
  • You do not have to worship any deity.
  • You do not have to believe everything you read on the internet.
  • Witchcraft cannot bend the laws of physics or the material world.
  • Witchcraft cannot give you the ability to fly, change your eye color, change your species, etc.
  • There are many “fluffy” websites out there full of misinformation like the above point.
  • You do not need to have a fancy journal where you write your shit down.
  • You can do that with a computer or in a cheap notebook. But if you want to go all out, go ahead!
  • Witchcraft does not do all the work for you. If you cast a spell to get an A on a test, you best study too.
  • Do not let others shame you from doing what works for you.
  • This includes cursing. Please don’t shame others if they want to curse!
  • If you want to do dream work or astral work, start keeping a dream journal now. 
  • You do not have to spend an arm and a leg for spell ingredients. 
  • If you’re closeted, paper magic and energy magic are your friends.
  • If you’re going to curse, ground and cleanse before AND after.
  • Understand that every spirit/entity you meet might not be your friend and you may have to get rid of it.
  • Understand that learning anything takes time, be it spirit communication or tarot.
  • Do not give up on yourself.
  • It’s okay to take a break from the craft. I do that every so often.
  • You can be christian/any religion AND a witch.
  • Witchcraft is not a religion. Wicca is.
  • You don’t need to be religious if you don’t want to.


Feel free to add anything else and my askbox is always open if you have questions!

A Slytherin who’s always going on about how they’re going to change the world and make all wizards equal in the eyes of the law and hopefully most of society.

A Slytherin that uses their persuasion to lift people’s self-confidence by convincing them they’re wonderful.

A Slytherin that doesn’t take stupid bigotry and is seen as obnoxious because they won’t let subtle jokes at the expense of others slide under the radar.

A Slytherin that uses their leadership skills to bring people together to achieve a common goal.

Just Slytherins being great people and utilizing their Slytherin traits to their advantage in the best way possible.

I hope your 2017 is better than your 2016. I hope it’s your best year yet. I hope you find meaning in your life, in the lives of those around you. And I hope you have the curiosity to go looking for it. 

I hope you learn to let go of the things that are holding you back; leave them behind in the past. I hope you make new memories that you’ll keep forever; put them in the top pocket of your favourite shirt so you can take them out every so often and smile. 

I hope you do one thing that scares you every day; that you make new friends who don’t always share your views. And that you learn about places halfway across the world, and push yourself to keep trying but forgive yourself when you don’t always meet your goals.  

I hope you smile at least once every day, and that you surround yourself with people who are kind and funny and honest. I hope you find a place where your happiness is permanent, not temporary. I hope you find that place in yourself.

Leaving someone behind who doesn’t care about your feelings, your wellbeing or how they treat you, should be the easiest thing in the world. But when you truly love someone it’s not that easy. You just have to find the strength to love yourself more than they ever will - and let go.

#happy Aaron is happy

Hey guys! This time I wanted to make a quotes list for the writers again, since there are more writers who deserve to be recognized. Same as before, I hope you like these quotes and find them inspirational like I have!

Neil Gaiman

  • “The world always seems brighter when you’ve just made something that wasn’t there before.”
  • “Make good art.”
  • “I lost some time once. It’s always in the last place you look for it.”
  • “Life is always going to be stranger than fiction, because fiction has to be convincing, and life doesn’t.”

  • “The one thing that you have that nobody else has is you. Your voice, your mind, your story, your vision. So write and draw and build and play and dance and live as only you can.”
  • “Sometimes the best way to learn something is by doing it wrong and looking at what you did.”
  • “The moment that you feel that just possibly you are walking down the street naked… that’s the moment you may be starting to get it right.”
  • “I’ve known ambitious people with no aptitude for the thing they did. Most of whom, rather terrifyingly, tended to succeed.”
  • “I hope that in this year to come, you make mistakes. Because if you are making mistakes, then you are making new things, trying new things, learning, living, pushing yourself, changing yourself, changing your world. You’re doing things you’ve never done before, and more importantly, you’re doing something.”
  • “I’ve never known anyone who was what he or she seemed; or at least, was only what he or she seemed. People carry worlds within them.”
  • “The imagination is a muscle. If it is not exercised, it atrophies.”
  • “When I started out, there were a lot of things I knew I couldn’t do, and a lot of things I only found out I couldn’t do by going and doing it. And no-one was watching, and nobody cared.”

Percy Bysshe Shelley

  • “Fear not for the future, weep not for the past.”

Alexander Pope

  • “The greatest magnifying glasses in the world are a man’s own eyes when they look upon his own person.”
  • “On life’s vast ocean diversely we sail. Reasons the card, but passion the gale.”

Audre Lorde

  • “Only by learning to live in harmony with your contradictions can you keep it all afloat.”

  • “If I didn’t define myself for myself, I would be crunched into other people’s fantasies for me and eaten alive.”
  • “I have come to believe over and over again that what is most important to me must be spoken, made verbal and shared, even at the risk of having it bruised or misunderstood.”

Gwendolyn Brooks

  • “Exhaust the little moment. Soon it dies. And be it gash or gold it will not come Again in this identical guise.”
  • “Look at what’s happening in this world. Every day there’s something exciting or disturbing to write about. With all that’s going on, how could I stop?”

Homer

  • “Be still my heart; thou hast known worse than this.”
  • “And what he greatly thought, he nobly dared.”

Horace

  • “Remember when life’s path is steep to keep your mind even.”
  • “It is courage, courage, courage, that raises the blood of life to crimson splendor. Live bravely and present a brave front to adversity.”
  • “Always keep your composure. You can’t score from the penalty box; and to win, you have to score.”
  • “Begin, be bold and venture to be wise.”
  • “Nothing’s beautiful from every point of view.”
  • “Seize the day, and put the least possible trust in tomorrow.”
  • “Life grants nothing to us mortals without hard work.”
  • “The foolish are like ripples on water, For whatsoever they do is quickly effaced; But the righteous are like carvings upon stone, For their smallest act is durable.”
  • “Mix a little foolishness with your serious plans. It is lovely to be silly at the right moment.”
I fear that one day I will bump into you on the street or inside a restaurant then my world will zero in on you and I will feel the same way as I did that day I had to let you go. I’m scared that years from now, when we have seemingly moved on with our own lives and living it with different people, we’ll still be each other’s greatest what-if.
—  Why La la land fucked me up / deepthoughtsofanobody

1. stop comparing yourself to other people. embrace your differences. remember what you have to offer the world. make lists of your good traits. forget what other people can do better and remember what you do good.


2. tell your friends you love and appreciate them more. thank them for listening. thank them for being them. forgive them faster and stop letting petty things get in between your friendships.

3. stop going back to the ex who screwed you over. be friends if you want, but remember they don’t even deserve your friendship. remember you cannot be fixed by the one who broke you.

4. let go of the people who are bringing you down. if a relationship brings you more pain than joy, it’s a toxic relationship. stop putting effort into people who refuse to meet you half way.

5. compliment yourself at least one time every day. try to compliment others every day as well.

6. get serious about your health. eat wheat bread and less sugar. exercise, even if it’s just walking. don’t do this for a flat stomach; do it because it’s good for your health.

7. take care of your mental health. surround yourself with people who make the negative thoughts in your head shut off. ask for help. see a therapist if you need one. take your pills as prescribed.

8. stop letting little things bother you. ask yourself if you’re really going to care about it in five years, and if the answer is no, let go of it. stop wasting time feeling sorry for yourself. sometimes you can’t help but to get upset over things, but when you do, do everything in your power to try to cheer yourself up.

9. use the internet less. read more books. spend more time with your family. spend more time being present and looking people in the eye. look up and appreciate the beauty around you.

10. drink less alcohol. do things with people that doesn’t involve drinking. discover how to have fun sober.

11. start the career you actually want. switch majors, even if you will end up spending more time in school. go back to college if you’re not in it and you want a profession you have to go to college for. i know it’s expensive but the rest of your life is worth it.

12. stop watching life pass you by. learn to say yes and learn to say no. learn to make decisions for yourself. learn to say “i am unhappy where i am so i am changing it.” make the first move. take charge of your life.

13. save more money for things you really want, whether it be a vacation or a new pair of shoes. stop blowing money on things you don’t need. pay your bills on time and avoid the late fees.

14. appreciate the good things in your life. eliminate negative self talk (or at least try to). think about three good things in your life every morning before you get out of bed. stop dwelling on the bad.

15. give your all in everything you do. don’t settle for mediocrity. work every day to be a better person than you were the day before.
