Lapidot Tuesday prompt 02/21/2017: Veggie Head

But what if Veggie Heads?
Peridot and Lapis learned that one can grow new sentient fruits from a sentient fruit’s seeds and that every pumpkin has hundreds of that. And so their initial intention to make a plantation of living vegetables was finally fulfilled!

Yes, I am saying that original Veggie Head is no longer with them. Such is the cycle of life. And no, they didn’t purposely kill pumpkins to get the seeds! Like the watermelon Stevens, pupkins probably don’t last long.

Remind me again when your faves got an entire themed press day on Valentine’s Day dedicated to their fictional same sex soap wedding filled with tacky but incredible heart decorations, food, cake, cocktails named after them and their life, and a game of Mr and Mr????

Emmerdale making Danny and Ryan sit with the media surrounded by the cringiest yet cutest and most bizarre celebrations; having to look at their own faces and watch themselves get married… I just can’t believe this was actually a thing lmao. This team are my absolute heroes. They’ve never been so extra but to have this much fuss and to create such big hype for something that was once shamed upon is amazing. HOW ICONIC, HOW SURREAL, I’M WEIRDLY SUPER PROUD.

So I played the demo of UnderTale and it’s such a cute game :o 

I haven’t been in the best mood so I made this to remind all of you (and myself) that you are filled with determination

Stay Determined~

*in reference to the post "Victor Hugo is everywhere"* I'm not even French, I'm Belgian, and yet, he's still EVERY-FUCKING-WHERE, because guess what? HE WAS THE KING OF THE ROMANTIC MOVEMENT MOTHERFUCKER, AND YOU MUST STUDY THIS FUCKING MOVEMENT IN FRENCH CLASS. And also, at one point, he lived in Belgium (and even in the city where I live #proud) because HE DIDN'T WANTED TO SHIT THE FUCK UP in France. In short, if your mother tongue is French, too bad, Vicky will haunt you all your life XD

there’s no escape

If Harry Potter had Narration
  • Narrating Harry: I was so busy looking for those Horcruxes, I almost forgot the most important thing...
  • Actual Harry: *goes up to Draco before leaving to sacrifice himself*
  • Actual Draco: Potter, what are you-
  • Actual Harry: *kisses him* chose the right side Draco. Save them if I can't.
  • Narrating Harry: I had my own life to live before I ended it for them... for him.
  • Actual Harry: *turns to run down the stairs and into the forest to die*
  • Actual Draco: *grabs his wrist* *looks Harry in the eye* I will. I'm so sorry-
  • Actual Harry: Don't. All that matters is that you're on our side now. *takes wrist back* *runs down the stairs*
  • Narrating Draco: *to narrating Harry* And I made you proud, right?
  • Narrating Harry: *breathy laugh* yeah, you did

Day 1: Throwback Mole Suspicion: I mark Young Justice as a major turning point in my view of my fellow women and girls in media. My first time seeing the front half of Season 1, I assumed that this was being played 100% straight. I thought that we were supposed to empathize with Artemis but that, ultimately, she’d be the mole. I assumed that the conflict with her character was that she honestly did believe she could not overcome what we came to know as her family legacy. I thought that she may have a redemption arc toward the end of the season.

And she did, but it wasn’t the one I was expecting. Realizing that Artemis’s story was about healing and overcoming abuse, neglect, fear, loneliness, and abandonment at various points in her life changed my world. I was and still remain so happy for and proud of her. She found her family, and she healed the ties in her blood family that could be healed and learned to live without the toxic pressure from those that tried to ensnare her. The way I viewed fiction before Artemis - and particularly women in fiction - I fully expected her to be the mole, but she wasn’t and I am so glad she wasn’t. 

i think one of the ways isak grew during his season is by starting to realize that he can be a positive addition to people’s lives, that he can, in fact, make things better 

things weren’t going well at home for god knows how long, and i can’t help but think that isak took some of the blame for what was happening, because this situation wasn’t something he was able to make better. his mom was going through a very hard time, his parents’ relationship seemed to have fallen apart, his father left, and there was nothing isak could do about it. there was nothing he should’ve had to do about it as their child, at such a young age, but he saw his home become broken, and he saw that there was nothing he could do to fix it. i think isak probably tried as best as he could, by trying to not be an “additional burden” in the household, by remaining quiet and closed off and trying not to add fuel to the fire. but things didn’t work out, and he ended up having to leave home at sixteen, leaving as things still seemed broken beyond repair 

and then you have his friendship with eva, one of his closest friends, and he blamed himself entirely for what happened to her relationship with jonas for over a year. he saw himself as the sole reason why jonas and eva weren’t together anymore, why they weren’t talking, and why the trio of friends they once were had fallen apart. and isak wasn’t innocent here, he did betray eva, but he wasn’t entirely to blame, eva said so herself. but once again, that’s the thing with isak, he blames himself more than he should for things he doesn’t have control over

isak will blame himself, think he’s at fault for other people not doing well. and you see that thinking pattern during the season. you see it in the locker room scene when even tells him he broke things off with sonja, and isak apologizes because he thinks it might’ve made him sad, i’m sorry if because of me you were sad. you also see it in the minutt for minutt clip, when he’s on the phone with sonja, and she has to remind him that it’s not his fault even’s not feeling well, that his mental illness is the reason why he’s feeling that way. he feels a lot of guilt, and sometimes his feeling of guilt is justified because he does mess up, speak before he thinks, and it’s a good thing that he feels remorseful and wants to apologize, it’s a good thing he wanted to apologize to eskild after what he told him in pride, it’s a good thing he wanted to apologize to mahdi after he pushed him, it’s a good thing he wanted to apologize to noora when he thought he might’ve been a little too harsh with her. it shows what a truly good and caring person isak is. but the amount of guilt he feels is sometimes disproportionate, because once again isak would see himself as the guy who can’t make things right, can only make them worse

but i think, or at least i’d like to think that isak has learned to take a step back and see the progress he makes, and realize that messing up is not all he does, see that he can, in fact, make things better, be a good person to others. i like to think he holds himself accountable just enough when he does mess up, enough to apologize and realize he was wrong and learn. but i also like to think that he truly sees what a great friend and boyfriend and person he is, and how it’s a good thing for the people he cares about to have isak in their life. i like to think that isak’s perception of himself is now a far better representation of who he actually is, and the role he plays in other people’s lives

anonymous asked:

I'm happy that despite the constant scrutiny she gets from the media and people for her personal life she continues to try and find what's out there for her. I'm so happy for her!

I said this to a friend last night, but clearly she learned a lot of lessons in 2014. One being that she wants a boyfriend and she’s very happy when she’s in relationships. Two being that she’s not willing to sacrifice what she wants to make the public happy anymore, and she’ll adjust accordingly so she can live her life on her own damn terms. I’m really proud of her for that. She’s so resilient.

A silence had fallen over the swaying multitude as the Queen raised her white hand and now her voice was throbbing in his ears, speaking words which would live for ever in the memory of Englishmen. He had forgotten how beautifully she could speak, the strength and depth of her voice reaching out across the fields - it would breathe life into a stone. 

The next he knew the crowds were waving and cheering in hysterical frenzy and it was all over. For a moment he was afraid the seething masses would surge forward, but under the control of her daunting majesty the lines held. He felt his throat close. Perhaps in every thousand years the world produced one man or woman to live in incandescence, enshrined within their span of time. What else would men call this era but Elizabethan?

mom: so how’s college going?
me:
me:
me: great

Why would anybody hate Sam Winchester though. Just why. He’s lost so much, his brother, his father, his mother, his girlfriend, his life, his brother again, his will to live, his shoe, his faith, his soul, his humanity. And he just keeps going???? He recovered from addiction, withstood LUCIFER’S torture that almost made an angel pass out, and people have the nerve to call him weak? He’s made mistakes and he tries to make up for them. Honestly if you hate Sam, I just have no words. None.

Cool story
  • Me: Jeez, I was up all night again listening to Creepypesto readings. I sure am spooked. I listened to a lot of stories about that Turtle Faced Jack guy. I sure hope he doesn't appear by my bedside and get me.
  • Turtle Faced Jack: What's up.
  • Me: Oh no, how could this happen!
  • Turtle Faced Jack: As the legend goes, I have to kill you now. I have to rip out your guts and say my signature catchphrase, "enjoy your nap".
  • Me: Oh no, I can't believe I'm going to be fucking killed. Thought I would die at the age of 63 due to congestive heart failure, but I was fucking wrong again, like I was wrong about so many other things like: my gender, wanting to be a scientist, who would become president in 2016, enjoying anime, and you not killing me, among other things. It's as if fate itself has decreed that everything I believe is, in reality, in an opposite state of existence.
  • Turtle Faced Jake: Wait just one minute. I absolutely definitely am going to kill you. It's going to be a pretty senseless murder, as it's just what I do. I don't get much pleasure from this at all, actually, but I've just now decided to think of this, what if before killing you, I do something else. Like, something really creepy to give my kills more flair. I already have a perfect catchphrase and my turtle face is terrifying, but there's not much else that makes me stand-out. I think I'm going to do something groundbreaking. Instead of killing you now, I'll mark you and kill you at a random point in the distant future.
  • Me: Oh no, that's so stressful and scary.
  • Turtle Faced Jake: Yeah, I know. You won't know when it will happen, all you will know is that it's not happening any time soon. Okay, I guess I'm going now. See you.
  • *so many years pass that I am now the age of 63*
  • Me: Here I am, 63 years of age. I've lived a full life and I am almost entirely ready to die. Whether I die of congestive heart failure or some other means is no issue to me. All that matters is that I die at this point in my life and finally move on to the next plane of existence.
  • Iphone58485848: *boop u have a message*
  • Me: Whoa, I have a message. It's from Turtle Faced Jake. Dear You, if you've received this message it's because I am dead. Shortly after our faithful meeting, I decided to devote my life to pacifism. I've never killed another person and I raised a happy family of fucked up turtle faced people. I am proud of what I've done and I was ready to pass away from natural means. Please live out the rest of your life under no stress, knowing that I won't be the one to take your life. Whoa, what a crazy letter. Can't say I planned out the next steps in my life after 63. Pretty sure I'll die of old age soon, though.

  • Me: Can't believe I'm still alive...

“M’lady,” Gwen began, but Sybil shook her head.

“You took the typing course, you gained the knowledge, you took the chance, and you impressed Mr. Bromidge,” Sybil insisted. “If anything, you were the one who changed my life.”

Gwen’s brow drew in confusion.

“You showed me that a woman could take control of her life,” She threw her husband a gentle smile and received a knowing look in return. “You showed me how to be brave.”

Gwen’s cheeks went pink as the Crawley family’s gaze moved between the two women. “I don’t know about all that.”

“I do,” Tom interjected. “You both were an inspiration to me. Still are.”

Gwen’s husband smiled. “Here here.”

Isabel echoed his sentiment with a raise of her glass. “To women helping each other to better their lives.”

As the toast spread across the table, Sybil and Gwen smiled at each other, an indulgent, embarrassed smile, but as they raised their glasses their smiles grew mischievous.

Tom leaned over to John Harding. “I know that smile.”

“I as well,” John answered.

The two men clinked their glasses together, knowing the future of the women’s college was in safe hands.

Lady Sybil Lives Week

i love this whole obsession with Eugene from buzzfeed thats going on now. like “omg i have the biggest crush on Eugene,” “Eugene is so hot,” “I wish i could find a guy like Eugene.” Because honestly, when was the last time you remember hearing about large amounts of people being obsessed with an asian guy? Like i love it. It feels so empowering that someone asian is considered extremely attractive in a society of euro-centric/white beauty standards. And whats great is people aren’t obsessing over him because he’s asian, they’re obsessing over him because he’s just fucking attractive. You go Eugene. Keep having girls, guys, both, just people in general obsess over you. I’m proud.
