Jonathan and Steve as friends headcanons of yours? :3

LOL, okay here are some I’ve been thinking of :) I also did a list with Barbara and Nancy friendship headcanons ~

  • The boys bonding thanks to music and movies, they would start giving each other recs of movies to watch and music to listen. Jonathan would make Steve a mix like the ones he does for Will, telling him he thinks he may like what is in it. Surprise: he does.
  • So next thing, Steve would invite him to hang out with these boys he has started to go out after he lost his two assholes friends, Jonathan would say no at first but with Nancy’s help, Steve would be patient to always invite him until, also with Nancy’s help, he would finally say yes.
  • Of course, the terrifying experience of the unkown will always make them have something to talk about. Sometimes they would see each other at Nancy’s home while she gets ready to go out with Steve and Jonathan is waiting for Will/got to leave Will, there are times when Jonathan is invited to have dinner there and Steve is also there. So slowly, they both will become comfortable in their presence.
  • At some point, Jonathan would start to hang out with Steve and Nancy, which also give shim chance to take pictures of their surrenders and finally, Steve will tell him he was the one who bought the camera, to what Jonathan would answer that he already knew.
  • Jonathan would start taking pictures of both, Nancy and Steve, then giving them to Nancy until one day, she would tell her to give them to Steve since she has enough and he doesn’t. Curious, Steve would ask him about the theme and one day, Jonathan will take him to the red room to see how he works with the images.
  • Next time Steve does  party, he invites Jonthan. And next time someone says something bad about him near Steve, his nerves will react the same way as always: he would be ready to fight anyone talking shit about his friends or Nancy.
  • Soon both boys would be part of the group of normal guys Steve has befriended and everything is ok.
  • Maybe Steve knows Jonathan has feelings for Nancy, but will considered enough to not say shit unless Jonathan wants to tell him something, but the boy is too shy and respectful to say anything, so it never happens and things are okay.
  • Nancy would love to see them bond and get along, which is an extra for them to be okay with each other.
  • Somehow, Steve starts to hang out more at Jonathan’s, which makes Joyce happy because she has always wanted Jonathan to not be alone and the kid seems like a good day. Will also approves.
  • They will play with the kids in the street while Nancy and friends watch, they are generally the bad guys, but is fun and the kids are alright.
  • With the videogames boom, Steve’s parents buy him a console and he invites Jonathan to play. Both are bad as fuck at it, but they have a lot of fun. Soon the kids start to go too, as they grow up and grow closer, things are easier.

Not sure if you do recommendations but.... What are some good blogs that post Vikings the show or just the history of them in general? Thanks! 😊

I can do recommendations for sure! 

Well firstly I do, quite a bit lately at least. I do mostly reblogs, I do my own gifs and art of the Vikings show. I’m also very interested in Old Norse and runes, so there will likely be more of that from my own blog soon :)

But to just throw out a good handful of Vikings (tv show) blogs:

Most of all of these have other connections to other great Viking focused blogs - I follow quite a handful more but these are a good start.

One I in particular want to emphasize is @jorindelle though. They make fantastic historical comparisons and parallels and connections with the sagas to the show and it’s probably some of my favorite content on the whole site, quite honestly.

Also follow @ssaravinter because she makes the most fantastic Vikings art. And fantastic art in general.

And then for just general viking culture, there’s a few I can recommend too although not very many I’m afraid:

As you might be able to tell on that, my interest in the language is kinda the focus. But fjorn the skald has interesting and long pieces about viking culture every so often.

I hope you find some blogs you’d like to follow! And thanks for asking me about it :)

4 for the bias ask :))

bias meme .

4 : Why I love my bias so much

oh god okay

cracks knuckles

let’s start with his beauty. like he’s literally so pretty it’s breathtaking. from his cute lil nose, to his pretty eyes, to his sharp ass jawline, to his pretty lips and radiant smile. even his forehead kills me. and his thighs?????? i’m a slut for legs like god bless his fucking leg muscles. i don’t understand how so many people can say he’s unattractive. i just don’t see it. and he definitely doesn’t look like a horse. those jokes lowkey rly bother me bc i know they bother him even if he goes along with it. after a time or two, it just gets really old and demeaning and isn’t funny anymore. but anyway i’m rambling now so i’ll move on.

his personality. not only is he beautiful on the outside, he’s even more stunning on the inside. i’ve never seen such a caring individual in my life. he’s so sweet and soft, he would lay down his life for a random hobo on the street if they needed it. you can’t find many people like that anymore, so that really makes him a gem. and he’s so cute like you can’t help but smile anytime he’s around because he radiates happiness and sunshine. not to mention he’s scared of literally everything, like how fucking cute can you be let me protect you my smol child.

his talent. again, i don’t understand how people can say he’s not talented enough. he has more talent in his pinky fingernail than most people i know have period. his dancing is mesmerizing, i literally just sit and watch fancams and stuff on a daily basis just to see him dance. he can sing, he has vocal chords straight from the gods. and on top of that, he taught himself to rap because it was asked of him, and even though he didn’t rap until a few years ago he’s so extremely good at it??????? and great at writing lyrics???????? like his dance and the way he raps are the initial thing that caused me to fall in love. it’s amazing. i mean have you seen boy meets evil????????????? i felt like my entire world imploded because it was so unbelievably fantastic i couldn’t handle it. my breath was taken. and he’s not bad at acting either, i love watching him in their serious mvs, like,,,,, he’s truly perfect.

and he works his ass off for everything he has. especially with how much people hate on him, he has a lot on his plate and he tries extra hard to impress everyone, nothing is just handed to him. he goes without sleep and practices until his feet start to crack because he’d rather work?????? and get better?????????????? just for us?????????????????????? even tho half of us don’t even deserve that thoughtfulness and dedication????????????????????????????? like,,,, i just can’t fathom how he exists.

i could go on forever but i’ll stop here. i just really love jung hoseok with every single fiber of my being and every inch of my soul.

tombliboos ha risposto al tuo post “a cautionary tale for you, American friends”

va bene tutto per l'ultima parte proprio no. Se Hillary vince col cavolo che vado a dormire tranquilla XD cioè dai eh, è responsabile di casini le cui conseguenze le stiamo pagando soprattutto noi, e magari lei la guerra la fa alla Russia al posto che al Messico. Cioè su in quanto a politica estera per noi si è dimostrata molto peggio Clinton e non dobbiamo negarlo solo perché non è Donald “I will be the greatest jobs president that God ever created” Trump. Se la gente affoga nel Mediterraneo per scappare dalle bombe è anche grazie a lei MAGARI CHIEDI AD UN CITTADINO IRACHENO RANDOM CHI È PEGGIO TRA TRUMP E HILLARY XD IL “MALE ASSOLUTO” È SEMPRE SOGGETTIVO ALLORA NON NASCONDIAMOCI DIETRO AD UN DITO E DICIAMO “CHISSENE DEI DANNI CHE HILLARY FA OLTRE I CONFINI, L'IMPORTANTE È CHE STIANO BENE GLI AMERICANI DI OGNI RAZZA E COLORE”

(scusa se l’ultima parte è capslock lo so che non me stavi urlando ma su tumblr le risposte se vedono in maiuscolo e mi girava il cazzo copiare e incollare tre volte)

nsomma, solo lei? cioè allora scusate ma pure obama sta a fare una marea di porcate solo che visto che obama ci sta simpatico facciamo finta di no oppure lo minimizziamo. se parliamo dell’iraq lo so che ha votato a favore ma il governo era bush jr, mica il suo, e mi pare che ha detto più volte che sa di aver fatto una cazzata - che poi magari non si sia pentita davvero è un altro discorso ma non credo proprio che nella situazione attuale c’abbia voglia di fare la guerra a putin perché vuole farla, trump invece non mi fido per niente.

poi: gli americani i danni dietro i confini li faranno sempre e perennemente. è impossibile pensare ad un presidente americano che si faccia i cazzi suoi. obama è stato eletto anche con la promessa che si sarebbe fatto i cazzi suoi e insomma. poi la clinton la politica estera sotto il governo obama l’ha fatta sotto il governo obama. cioè questa ovvio che non è una santa e nessuno l’ha mai detto ma è sempre meno peggio di trump punto, perché da lei posso aspettarmi che non va a fare altri danni visto che è abbastanza intelligente da capire che non è il caso, da uno che non sa manco scrivere un tweet senza tre errori di battitura e vuole fare il muro col messico no. qui non è il problema del chiederlo all’iracheno (che al 90% ti risponde george bush comunque o obama alla peggio), qua il problema è che se vince trump non è detto che tra due anni non siamo per i cazzi peggio che con bush jr e se parliamo di essere cretini o meno bush e trump insieme non fanno dieci per cento della clinton. poi a me di come stanno gli americani importa fino ad un certo punto, a me importa di quanto va a puttane il resto del mondo se a fa il presidente degli stati uniti finisce uno psicopatico.

cioè abbassando i paragoni, a me il governo monti ha fatto abbastanza cagare perché è tipo la cosa più di destra che ti puoi immaginare e non lo voterei mai ma dovendo scegliere tra lui e berlusconi piglierei lui senza manco pensarci anche se ha fatto delle politiche che per me sono negative abbestia. oppure a me il governo misto attuale fa abbastanza cagare il cazzo ma voterei la coalizione con verdini piuttosto che i cinquestelle anche se verdini lo aborro. però i cinquestelle al governo li aborro di più. è lo stesso discorso - hillary può fare cagare quanto vogliamo e l’ho detto pure nel post, non puoi pretendere niente dai politici automaticamente men che meno che siano onesti o che non abbiano fatto schifezze nella vita SPECIE se americani, ma è sempre meno peggio di trump punto. perché trump non sai quello che fa ed è completamente fuori dal mondo, la clinton no. 

poi i casini di cui stiamo pagando le conseguenze sono la responsabilità di un sacco di gente tra cui lei, ma se è roba che fa fatto da secretary of state allora è di obama 50/50 perché il presidente è lui (come metà delle porcate fatte da bush in realtà erano di cheney ma noi ce ricordiamo bush principalmente perché il foglio lo firmava lui) ma quattro anni fa stavamo a dire che non bisognava rivotarlo quando l’alternativa era romney che è uno molto meno psicopatico/improponibile di trump?

cioè ovvio che hillary non è na santa e nessuno l’ha mai detto io in primis, ma personalmente se vince lei vado sicuro a dormire più tranquilla che non se vince trump. ma senza proprio battere ciglio. ha fatto na politica estera dimmerda? ok, ma era la politica estera di obama pure. o di bush, solo che con la guerra in iraq almeno ha ammesso pubblicamente di essersene pentita. e quando il punto è vota lei perché altrimenti c’hai un fascista al potere (perché quello è fascista punto e non oso pensare che succede se vince lui coi repubblicani al congresso) andare a fare ‘fa schifo però è meglio di trump ma di poco’ non è che te aiuta. l’unica mentalità in sti casi è ‘QUALUNQUE SIANO I TUOI PROBLEMI TAPPATI IL NASO’. perché tanto gli altri due servono solo a farle perdere voti tipo nader nel 2000 ed equivalgono a votare diliberto qui. a che serve votà diliberto? a un cazzo XD e qui idem. la sua politica estera fa schifo? se segue la politica democratica degli ultimi otto anni (e credo lo farebbe visto che se vince sarà perché la gente spera di non farsi un altro iraq) si rende conto che non è ora di essere guerrafondai perché è abbastanza intelligente per capirlo e sinceramente preferisco quell’opzione all’incognita del berlusconi de loroantri. (sorry ma avere votato col naso tappato per dieci anni ti fa perdere molta dell’ideologia che avevi quando hai cominciato quando si tratta di passare sopra le cazzate che ha fatto il meno peggio. /o\)

hey so you know that vicious cycle of mental health making you unproductive which makes your mental health worse? don’t worry friend I am here with something that can help

just get one thing done. break the cycle. it doesn’t have to be some big task. in fact it’s better if it isn’t. decide on something that takes five minutes or less. keep it tiny and manageable - the key is to feel like you’ve accomplished something, so when your brain is all, you can’t even do a single thing all day except lay in bed being useless, you can be like, oh but I did do something, brain, suck on that. it might not seem like much at the time but it helps a lot to have something tangible you can point to

do you have dirty dishes in your bedroom? get rid of ‘em. you don’t have to wash them, just put them in the sink with soapy water. done. easy.

do you have a pile of empty water bottles sitting there? good for you staying hydrated. but you don’t need a mountain of plastic reminders. throw a few in the trash or in recycling. don’t worry about chasing down every single one, just pick a number. get rid of 5 or 10. easy, manageable even if you feel terrible. done.

do you need to do something early tomorrow? get something ready now. just one thing. lay out an outfit. fill the coffee maker so you can just press a button tomorrow. pack your backpack or purse. bonus benefit, future you will have an extra few minutes to breathe in the morning.

do you have a pet? spend 5 minutes with your pet. cuddle them. play tug of war. make baby noises at them. your pet loves you. I bet they miss you when you’re sad. you’ll both feel better.

has it been 3 weeks since you did laundry? pick your clothes up off the floor and put them in a laundry basket. don’t actually wash them or even take the basket anywhere. just collect the clothes for later so they aren’t spread all over. it’ll make actually doing them that much easier when you have more energy

did you manage to wash your clothes but not put them away? fold something. fold another thing. and one more. put them away. three things. you got this one.

did you do your one thing? good. I’m proud of you. even if it didn’t make you feel better, guess what? you did a thing. you got something done, you can be done now. you can go back to bed if you want.

one of my favourite things to come out of bvs are the comments about wonder woman’s theme ‘is she with you?’

i was terrified of doing this in undergrad, and now that i’m asked to write them fairly often, i am fondly exasperated when my students don’t know how to ask for them. obviously there’s no single way, but here’s the way i usually do it.

THE FIRST EMAIL

  • should be short & should mainly be asking whether they’re willing to write you the letter
  • should provide only the basics - what the professor absolutely needs to know.
    • the position you’re applying for
    • when the letter would be due
    • optional: if you’re afraid they won’t remember you, a quick line identifying yourself & your relation to them
  • i like to provide an “out,” in case they don’t want to or are unable to write the letter

SAMPLE
Dear Professor X,
I’m applying for a job as an English tutor at the University Student Resource Center, and was wondering if you’d be willing to write me a letter of recommendation for the position. [optional identification: I really enjoyed taking English 300 with you in Winter 2016, and I’m hoping to develop and pass on those skills to other students through this job.] The letter would be due by September 1st - I know you’re very busy, so I completely understand if you’re not able to write one. 
All best,
Your Name

THE SECOND EMAIL

  • they said yes!! amazing.
  • this one can provide a little more information – a link to the job posting, if there is one, or you can write a quick summary of the position, plus a sentence or two about why you’re excited/interested in the job.
  • also tell them where to send the letter!! 
    • directly to the recruiter for the job
    • to you, to add to your application packet
    • upload to an online LoR service or to an application website
  • 99% of the time folks are fine with receiving electronic copies, but if they need to mail a hard copy, let them know up front.

SAMPLE:
Dear Professor X,
Thank you so much! I really appreciate it. Here’s the link to the job listing; the letter should be sent as a .pdf file to the email address at the bottom of the page, anytime before 9/1. Thanks again – I’m hoping that this job will provide me with some teaching experience and the opportunity to work on my own writing. Please let me know if you need any more information!
Best, 
Your Name

WHEN TO SEND A FOLLOW-UP

  • these stress me out real bad but here’s the deal: most professors have a very shaky relationship to deadlines (especially when they have half a dozen more important ones than your piddly LoR). 
  • the upshot: do not be afraid to nudge them. 
  • often they need the nudge and are appreciative of it.
  • when that nudge happens is up to you and how much room you’ve given them before the deadline, and it’ll look different depending on your relationship with that professor.

GRAD SCHOOL LETTERS

  • i offered to send my professors essays that i had written for their classes, especially if i had taken those classes more than a year before asking them to write the letter, just so they could refamiliarize themselves with my work. you can also offer to send them your writing sample, if you haven’t already asked them to look it over for you.
  • honestly i’d recommend asking for these in person bc it’ll give you a chance to talk to them about their grad school experience and your own hopes & aspirations, which will help them write a more personal, fleshed-out letter.
  • one important note: if this letter is intended for use in grad school applications, do not stress out if it’s a little late. most programs do not care, and pretty much all of them accept late letters without a problem. your professor’s ability to meet deadlines does not reflect on you, and professors are intimately familiar with running late on LoRs. they really honestly don’t care. as long as it gets there before too long, you’ll be fine.
  • thank-yous are up to you! keep in mind that many departments have policies about gift-giving. i did give thank-yous to my three major letter writers, but they were handwritten cards & homemade cookies, nothing store-bought or expensive.
