like this is a surprise to anyone

NEWS FLASH 😒

Norman Reedus does not owe anyone an explanation about his personal life. Are fans actually having meltdowns that he’s apparently in a relationship?

1) Who gives a shit?
2) It’s none of our business.
3) He deserves happiness like the rest of us. Leave him be ffs.
4) People need to stop being so fucking judgemental about situations they know absolutely nothing about.
5) Is it really surprising he probably issued false statements about his relationship when his crazy vulture fans were already losing their collective minds over this?

I would tell everyone to fuck off and get a life if they were all up in my business 24/7.

Has anyone else noticed a surprising amount of ageism against minors in the left???

Like pretending that the children of the proleteriat don’t also suffer the same existence due to capitalism and that their experiences aren’t “real” until they’re out in the “adult” world as if it’s that terribly different from the “not adult” world???

Erasing the experiences of an entire generation and delegitimizing anything they have to say in reaction to it is
1: Super shitty
And 2: Completely unfounded because many people come into the left before they are in “the adult world”. Not to mention those people all will eventually become adults.
When they do become adults do those experiences all of a sudden become legitimate now?? Or do only adult experiences with capitalism “count”?

I just encountered someone that made me want to make another Richard Spencer-esque punching meme

ANTAGONISTS OF SHERLOK BBC IN COMPARISON WITH CANON CHARACTERS

After 10 episodes of Sherlock BBC it seems to be a an interesting idea to compare all the antagonists of the show with their canonical predecessors from the original stories. Have Mofftiss altered them? If so, in which way did they modify their characters? The outcome of this comparison is really surprising and also a bit revealing because there seems to be a pattern in the changes.

After some considerations I decided to turn this post upside down and start with a short summary ot the final results so you can view it at one glance. If anyone likes to take a more detailed look at this comparison of the characters you will find everything under the cut.

This list shows very clearly a notable change of character in most of the antagonist. Jefferson Hope and Jonathan Small went from a bit not good to very bad. Whereas Irene Adler, Bob Frankland and Mary Morstan were altered totally the other way round - from nice and good to rather bad or outright evil.

The biggest villains of the original stories though are representing the most interesting puzzles in Sherlock BBC. Colonel Sebatian Moran’s character looks a good deal diminished in BBCs Lord Moran … unless we meet him again and may see a different side of him.

The same goes with Charles Augustus Magnusson. Maybe he’s indeed dead … maybe he’s yet alive. With all the hints of ‘sharks’ and going back on S4 setlock we can’t be sure anymore. And if CAM is still involved in the game … who knows how this character might surprise us in the end.

Finally there is the criminal mastermind himself … brilliant and changeable Jim Moriarty. A much more dazzling and colorful character than Prof. James Moriarty from the original stories.  No wonder he embodies the bigges riddle of all. It’s not just the question if he’s dead or alive …. it’s also the question if he is what we think he is … or if he is someone quite different. Is/was he the puppet master of this great game or just the puppet on a string? Jim from IT, the spider, actor Richard Brooke? And if he’s just the marionette who then might the real puppet master be?

If there is indeed a pattern of how Mofftiss changed the original characters from good/a bit not good to quite bad and evil …. then the really big canon baddies - Jim and CAM - might surprise us after all. Quite possibly this may also apply for Culverton Smith who will appear in S4. One could call this a rug-pull too, I think.

As mentioned above there is a detailed description of all the canon and BBC characters under the cut:

anonymous asked:

Someone from the Elgang *cough*Elsword*cough* complaining that they feel like slaves after doing errands for a day and Add lecturing them that slaves have it so much worse. (I have a lot of feels when it comes to slave!Add)

“Come on! Not another dish, Elesis! I’m not a slave!” Elsword whined.

Elesis bonked his head, turning around and returning to the dishes. “Help me out little bro or you’ll regret it.”

“Uggghhhhh. No! I’m not a slave!” Elboy barked, throwing the rag down and stomping out of the kitchen.

Add angrily stood awaiting him at the door. Before anyone could react, the albino pinned Elboy against the wall, about ready to rip his damned red haired head off.

“You have no fucking clue what real slavery is like! You don’t! Does it not fucking matter?! Are these scars for nothing?!” Add screeched, getting really upset.

Elsword winced, more surprised than anything.

“They shackle you up and brand you with a number. You’re lucky if you even live to remember your name! They whip you when you don’t obey, and when they’re drunk, you can’t stop them from raping you. It doesnt matter! It never did to them! You have no fucking clue how lucky I was to escape! So shut up!!…” Add screamed, breaking down in sobs. The El Gang party members watched in a mix of horror, confusment, and wonder.

Elsword froze up. “What..?” It didn’t get through his thick skull that Add just revealed a big chunk of his past.

He awkwardly patted Add’s head, only to get punched and then thrown on the floor before Add stormed off to have a mental breakdown.

my main internet safety tips for anyone, especially minors, are as follows:

  • if you have accounts on multiple social media/social news platforms, use different usernames for all of them. you’d be surprised by what people can dig up about you by just google-searching your standard account name and piecing together all the information you post on the various accounts.
  • if you post selfies and stuff, look over them before you post them to make sure there’s no identifying info in the background, like a school logo on a sweatshirt on the floor. 
  • if you’re a minor, NEVER EVER take or post nudes, EVER. you could get into serious legal trouble for possession and distribution of child pornography.
  • keep track of what information you post. 
  • trust your gut– if someone’s making you uncomfortable, even if it feels like the reasons are irrational, block ‘em.
  • if you’re, say, under 16, it’s best not to mention your age. 

So I’m trying to organize my files because I don’t save things in a way that makes them easy to find, and I found an old TVPaint file on my computer apparently from April of last year, with a name that I didn’t recognize.  I opened it, and it had some concept drawings for W2H2 that I forgot about, PLUS this little number, which isn’t necessarily W2H2-related, and which I definitely don’t remember drawing.  SO, UH… YEAH!  Have some weird, unfinished, overly-rendered Jonathan!  Maybe I’ll finish it one day, haha…

But can we talk about those flashbacks Oliver has? 

that first meeting

(he’s been in the dark for so long it’s all he even knows anymore… he’s been living in this dull, focused work of black and white, knowing colors from afar but never really seeing them… and suddenly, there’s color everywhere, splashes, strokes, streaks of them… there’s something that just glows and he’s like a moth, stunned by the life in that flame… it’s the first time he remembers someone knowing he’s lying and calling him out on it in a manner that genuinely moves something inside him, makes his lips curve and before he knows it, he’s surprised himself by smiling back at this glowing life of color… the reason he’ll always remember it was red…)

that first date

(where he finally picked up the courage to ask her out. he’s never had trouble asking anyone for a date but with her it’s different, he’s different. and he remembers being such a nervous wreck, because he’s taking that first step towards happiness with the woman he knows he loves… and then he sees her and everything blanks for a moment. he’s never seen her look more beautiful than she does right in that moment, waiting for him with a nervous smile and soft eyes and just… waiting for him… and he just falls more in love with her, right there…)

that first kiss

(the first time he held her face in the palm of his hands, his lips against hers, breathing her in, knowing deep into his bones that there would never be another woman for him, not as long as he lived… he memorizes this moment, so completely that he can recall it as he feels himself dying on a cold mountain, or see it in a place of everything strange. this kiss became his homing beacon, in his own mind…)

that first time

(after he knew he had to stay behind and here was no changing anything, after she’d given him the greatest gift a woman could give a man - her heart, her body, her soul, after telling him he was beautiful and she was so proud of him in so many million ways, after months and months of loving her from afar, from knowing he would die and kill for her happiness, after months of being a man committed to a woman in his heart, his body, his soul, she opened her arms to him, she accepted him. he’ll never forget that night for as long as he’ll live, not only because they made love for hours, culminating the desire that had been simmering between them for years, but also because it had been a dying wish for him, a memory of beauty in a future of dark, a memory that would give him strength in the time to come, sustain him, inspire him, and make him go back to her…. for that night, he was just Oliver and she was just Felicity and they loved each other with everything inside them)

that first proposal to the woman he loved and almost truly losing her

(he’s held so many limp bodies in his life, more than any one man should, seen blood flow out of loved ones mouths as they’d taken that last breath in his embrace… he’s held her body so many times, in so many ways, in so many moments in his arms, with love and laughter and passion and intensity… he’s held her even when she’d been limp, when her head had lolled and he’d carried her to safety, feeling her breathe in his arms… but this was different… because they’d just been kissing, just been looking at the ring he’d finally placed on her finger after harboring it for months, just asked her for the commitment of a lifetime - body, heart, and soul - and she’d smiled and cried and clung to him and said yes… she’d just made him the happiest man on the face of the earth, the happiest he’d ever been in his life, the happiest he’d never thought he’d be… and it was gone… and he could feel it in his bones… this was bad… he was losing her, in perhaps more ways than one… she wasn’t waking up and she was hit and he knew what a straight bullet to the back could do and he was panicking because no, god no, not her… not like this… not with blood coating the ring on her finger…)

that first time he married her

(he’s married her in his heart a hundred times already - with his eyes, his hands, his mouth, every part of his flesh and every part of his being… he’s married her in every way a man can marry a woman in his heart, his everything hers, he hers, for better or worse, for life… he’s been working on his vows for months now, and the moment he has her here, he knows he screwed up, and he knows she still loves him, and he knows this won’t forgive or win her back but he needs her to know, he needs to do this for himself, because baring his soul to her had always been simple, baring his heart to her, telling her she’s his always and he just wishes to be hers, sliding that ring on her finger, even for a few moments, in his heart they’re married right then - even if she’s hurt, even if he’s messed up, even if it’s all fake… for him, it’s never been more real, in the same venue he couldn’t bring himself to cancel and the same dress she was going to wear… in this moment, he’s married her… for the first time…) 


Nothing screams ENDGAME like a man who’s forgotten everything, lost in his own mind, and finds himself guided back home by the sheer memories of the woman he loves. He leaves his perfect life behind to go back, in part, to be with her, where he knows he can speak her name the way he does and her eyes would soften in the way they do.

Felicity Smoak is Oliver Queen’s always. 

And this episode proved than a million times.

D6 That's Not Even the Worst Part!

By Applejaxc: 

Next time your players complain about a fight being too easy, consider springing one of these unexpected threats on them. Your next boss fight should be accompanied by something like this….

1 - His jacket attacks me?

This is a classic

The bad guy is wearing a Cloaker, which appears for all intents and purposes as a regular cloak with eyes running down its spines. Not only do these eyes make it impossible to surprise the enemy (even with invisibility), as soon as a player gets close, the jacket flies off and attacks!

If a Cloaker isn’t a big enough threat, consider making it a Vampire Cloaker, or giving it a mummy’s Rotting Fist. Last time your player stands close to anyone in a coat.

2 - The sword is a what?

Your bad guy carries two weapons. One is a conventional sword, axe, staff, wand, or what have you. The second is a highly trained mimic shaped like a weapon. Instead of making an attack roll on the enemy’s turn, the mimic weapon attempts to grapple a target within melee range and restrain it before the enemy makes a real attack. Alternatively it can attempt to grapple a player’s weapon or shield instead.

3 - That’s not even fair!

The bad guy has an Astral Stalker for a body guard. If that’s too weak, make it two. If that’s too strong, use the stats of an appropriate monster, but make it invisible and an elemental.

4 - Bigger Fish

This is my favorite game

This is it. The final encounter. The players have prepared their spells, their contingencies. They’ve studied the enemy. They’ve cast Resistance to survive his favorite spells.

And then he’s eaten by a tyrannosaurus rex.

Or something even more terrifying bursts into the scene (teleported in, breaks through a wall, drops through the ceiling, escapes its cage, etc). It not only one-shots the bad guy to prove how powerful it is, it’s ready to kill the party, too.

5 - Those Aren’t Statues

The final encounter room (or even the whole adventure) is dotted with “statues” of men and monsters that are far too lifelike to be hand crafted. Naturally the party suspects a medusa. Instead, the bad guy is armed with a Wand of Flesh to Stone and Back.

When the party is in the midst of the most powerful petrified monsters, the bad guy reveals himself-and turns all of the “statues” back into fearsome enemies!

Conveniently the wand has just enough charges to turn any petrified party members back to flesh before becoming an expensive dud.

6 - You said this game wasn’t a competition

Roll twice. Your bad guy is sinister.

Valentine's Day HC

This is my Valentine’s Day present for @sleepingupsidedown blame her for the suffering

-Lance has everyone’s back

-Even if no one ever really talks to him but Hunk

-Keith goes to Allura or Shiro because god forbid he talks to anyone else

-Allura goes to Coran and Coran goes to Allura

-Shiro only goes to Keith

-Pidge goes to Hunk or Shiro

-Hunk can talk to Pidge, Keith, Lance , and Shay

-Lance well, when it comes to the real important stuff, the homesickness, feeling inferior, a burden, a seventh wheel, Lance has no one

-Lance tries to form close bonds with the others but they never give him the chance, and those that do he doesn’t want to hurt by telling them of how unhappy he is

-Or he feels the horrible tension that seems to constantly be around them so he takes it upon himself to be the comedy relief

-The reason he flirts is because it makes him feel closer to his brother who taught him all those awful pick up lines

-He’s used to being overlooked it happens when you have a big family, it can’t be helped

-So when they finally have a moment to stop and relax Lance isn’t all that bothered that everyone naturally paired off only leaving him alone

-Lance then decides to simply go to his room, have some me time

-When he finally has his mask on he finds that he has tracks down his face mask(HIS VERY EXPENSIVE AND RARE FACEMASK MIND YOU)

- Cursing he realized it was wet with his tears

- He rushed to fix the mask and try to stop his crying but he finds that he can’t

-He can’t stop crying

-He can’t breathe

-He can’t hear the music he put on earlier

-He’s on the floor

-He doesn’t know what’s wrong and yet he remains quiet, rides it out by himself because who can he tell

-So he waits for what feels like forever to be able to breathe again

-Then he just waits for the panic and blind terror to subside

-And when it’s all over he gets up, the timer went off, it’s time to take off the face mask

-He doesn’t want to be alone anymore

-He doesn’t want to be there

-He wants to be in his mama’s arms

-He wants to listens to his siblings trying to make him laugh

-He wants his dad to be making him chocolate caliente

-Hell he just wants someone to talk to

-He just wants someone in the spaceship to have his back for once

-Someone who is genuinely interested to see him or just listen to everything be it good or bad

-He wants too many things that will never come to pass

-So instead he lays back in bed until the next battle because what else is there to do?

-What Lance doesn’t know is that it’s his birthday

-Everyone went and paired up to go prepare the surprise party for Lance the flirt who just happened to be born on Valentine’s Day

-Hunk went to go make the cake with Coran

-Pidge went to find some dank memes

-Allura,Shiro, and Keith went on to decorate the common space

-What Lance doesn’t know is that they all love him and appreciate him

-What Lance doesn’t know is that Keith planned all of this after Hunk let it slip that Lance’s birthday is on Valentine’s Day

-What Lance doesn’t know is that Keith plans to tell him how he feels about him

-WHAT LANCE DOESN’T KNOW is that the reason no one has had time is because they have been busy trying to hunt down the beauty products the know Lance loves or anything that brings him happiness to be honest

-You see Hunk isn’t making an Altean cake, oh no, he managed to find more than half of the ingredients to make Lance’s favorite cake, a tres leches

-Pidge found at least 3 new face mask made by humans for humans

-Allura is giving Lance a book she’s been writing with all the pick up lines Lance has ever directed toward her because she doesn’t know when but at some point it stopped being annoying and it started to be endearing

-Shiro is giving Lance the chance to give himself a nickname that Shiro will use from then on but it must be appropriate

-And Keith….. he has a whole letter were he wrote down all the feelings he knows he won’t be able to ever say to him

-Just hundreds of words stating how much he loves him and how sorry he is for ever forgetting him

-Asking Lance if he will take him, God please allow him to have a special place in his heart

-So Lance doesn’t know that when he is finally feeling as if he can actually maybe function that the others have Hunk going to his door to coax him out of his room

-But when Lance learns about all of it, learns that he’s not alone and the others have his back

-Now his tears are from happiness and a spark of hope that not everything is impossible

-And yes he does have enough space for Keith, why wouldn’t he?

the best thing that ever happened

Enchanted…

While following the sounds of a waterfall, this beautiful creature caught my eye. I was so surprised, all I could do was dance in place, trying not to squeal like a little girl! I started shooting away until I realized my settings were all set for a waterfall and not an owl sitting on a branch, looking annoyed with me! Fumbling around with my camera, while jumping up and down, I managed to get this half-way decent shot… and of course, the memories of this moment will always be crystal clear. ;)

Anyone know what kind of owl this is? This was taken in the Siuslaw National Forest, Oregon, USA.

why is anyone surprised like this year is never gonna be over. it had 6 days to fuck up and it took away 2 good people already and there are still 4 more days. 2016 is sentient and it’s not afraid of anything

where was your suffering?

Facebook gets a bad rap, but there’s a lot of serious shit going down there these days.  Via a friend’s reposting:


From Scott Mednick, when a Facebook friend told him, “We suffered for 8 years. Now it’s your turn.”

Scott’s reply:


"I am surprised you would wish suffering upon me. That of course is your right, I suppose. I do not wish harm on anyone. Your statement seems to continue an ‘US v THEM’ mentality. The election is over. It is important to get past campaigning and campaign rhetoric and get down to what is uniting not dividing and what is best for ALL Americans.

There will never be a President who does everything to everyone’s liking. There are things President Obama (and President Clinton) did that I do not like and conversely there are things I can point to that the Presidents Bush did that I agree with. So I am not 100% in lock step with the outgoing President but have supported him and the overall job he did.

And, if you recall, during the Presidential Campaign back in 2008 the campaign was halted because of the "historic crisis in our financial system.” Wall Street bailout negotiations intervened in the election process. The very sobering reality was that there likely could be a Depression and the world financial markets could collapse. The United States was losing 800,000 jobs a month and was poised to lose at least 10 million jobs the first year once the new President took office. We were in an economic freefall. So let us recall that ALL of America was suffering terribly at the beginning of Obama’s Presidency.

But I wanted to look back over the last 8 years and ask you a few questions. Since much of the rhetoric before Obama was elected was that he would impose Sharia Law, Take Away Your Guns, Create Death Panels, Destroy the Economy, Impose Socialism and, since you will agree that NONE of this came to pass,

I was wondering:
Why have you suffered so?

So let me ask:
Gays and Lesbians can now marry and enjoy the benefits they had been deprived of. Has this caused your suffering?

When Obama took office, the Dow was 6,626. Now it is 19,875. Has this caused your suffering?

We had 82 straight months of private sector job growth - the longest streak in the history of the United States. Has this caused your suffering?

Especially considering where he the economy was when he took over, an amazing 11.3 million new jobs were created under President Obama (far more than President Bush). Has this caused your suffering?

Obama has taken Unemployment from 10% down to 4.7%. Has this caused your suffering?

Homelessness among US Veterans has dropped by half. Has this caused your suffering?

Obama shut down the US secret overseas prisons. Has this caused your suffering?

President Obama has created a policy for the families of fallen soldiers to have their travel paid for to be there when remains are flown home. Has this caused your suffering?

We landed a rover on Mars. Has this caused your suffering?

He passed the Matthew Shepard Hate Crimes Prevention Act. Has this caused your suffering?

Uninsured adults has decreased to below 10%: 90% of adults are insured - an increase of 20 Million Adults. Has this caused your suffering?

People are now covered for pre-existing conditions. Has this caused your suffering?

Insurance Premiums increased an average of $4,677 from 2002-2008, an increase of 58% under Bush. The growth of these
insurance premiums has gone up $4,145 – a slower rate of increase. Has this caused your suffering?

Obama added Billions of dollars to mental health care for our Veterans. Has this caused your suffering?

Consumer confidence has gone from 37.7 to 98.1 during Obama’s tenure. Has this caused your suffering?

He passed the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act. Has this caused your suffering?

His bi-annual Nuclear Summit convinced 16 countries to give up and destroy all their loose nuclear material so it could not be stolen. Has this caused your suffering?

He saved the US Auto industry. American cars sold at the beginning of his term were 10.4M and upon his exit 17.5M. Has this caused your suffering?

The deficit as a percentage of the GDP has gone from 9.8% to 3.2%. Has this caused your suffering?

The deficit itself was cut by $800 Billion Dollars. Has this caused your suffering?

Obama preserved the middle class tax cuts. Has this caused your suffering?

Obama banned solitary confinement for juveniles in federal prisons. Has this caused your suffering?

He signed Credit Card reform so that rates could not be raised without you being notified. Has this caused your suffering?

He outlawed Government contractors from discriminating against LGBT persons. Has this caused your suffering?

He doubled Pell Grants. Has this caused your suffering?

Abortion is down. Has this caused your suffering?

Violent crime is down. Has this caused your suffering?

He overturned the scientific ban on stem cell research. Has this caused your suffering?

He protected Net Neutrality. Has this caused your suffering?

Obamacare has extended the life of the Medicare insurance trust fund (will be solvent until 2030). Has this caused your suffering?

President Obama repealed Don’t Ask Don’t Tell. Has this caused your suffering?

He banned torture. Has this caused your suffering?

He negotiated with Syria to give up its chemical weapons and they were destroyed. Has this caused your suffering?

Solar and Wind Power are at an all time high. Has this caused your suffering?

High School Graduation rates hit 83% - an all time high. Has this caused your suffering?

Corporate profits are up by 144%. Has this caused your suffering?

He normalized relations with Cuba. Has this caused your suffering?

Reliance on foreign oil is at a 40 year low. Has this caused your suffering?

US Exports are up 28%. Has this caused your suffering?

He appointed the most diverse cabinet ever. Has this caused your suffering?

He reduced the number of troops in both Iraq and Afghanistan. Has this caused your suffering?

Yes, he killed Osama Bin Laden and retrieved all the documents in his possession for analysis. Perhaps THIS caused your suffering?

From an objective standpoint it would appear that the last 8 years have seen some great progress and we were saved from a financial collapse. Things are not perfect. Things can always be better. We are on much better footing now than we were in 2008.

I look forward to understanding what caused you to suffer so much under Obama these last 8 years.“
