look at them interacting with other people

anonymous asked:

Mutable signs are so misunderstood but why?

Because they’re adaptable and differ from themselves in different settings. They are able to switch themselves up in a matter of seconds without being fake, they’re too multi-faceted to fit in a set form, but are genuine nevertheless. We understand things - including people - by categorizing them, building a scheme of what something looks and is like. We build connections in our mind: This person is extroverted and social because they interact with others a lot and feel at home in the crowd. This person is introverted because they rather stay with few people and only express themselves openly and freely when surrounded by those they trust and feel at home with. Now with mutable signs, they throw this system over. One day you see them extroverted, surrounded by people who are barely acquainted with them and having the time of their life, talking about nonsense and only ever joking around, the other they’re engaged in a serious, intellectual conversation with someone, completely still, for hours. It’s confusing. With mutable signs, you often don’t really know where you stand, or where they stand for that matter, until you really got to know them and that obviously takes a while. People like to judge prematurely because it’s a) easy and b) helps them operate/interact in and with the world better. That hinders the proper understanding of the nature of mutable signs, because it’s not fixed. It’s not categorizable. The very nature of mutable signs is to adapt and/or change. Gemini and Pisces are more adaptable, Sagittarius and Virgo more changeable. Virgo constantly strives for improvement and ways to better themselves, which leads to change. Sagittarius yearns for more experiences and knowledge, which also leads to change. Gemini yearns for connections and learning through as many people as possible. They have to be adaptable for that. Pisces has already lived through every sign and wants to love universally and connect. They can’t do that when they’re fixed. Mutable signs don’t fit into a set form because that’s not in their nature, and it’s confusing if you try to categorize and get to know people. With mutable signs, you just have to accept that they won’t stay the same, ever, that they will be different people in a matter of seconds without being fake. That’s scary because you just have to let them be and that doesn’t allow you to set up methods to protect yourself specifically curated for them, and it’s a lot of work because you can’t just spend a week with them and have a basic understanding of them. That’s not to say you will know the other signs properly within a week, of course not, but it’s easier to get to know a set “foundation” to build your knowledge on for them. With mutable signs, that foundation would be the knowledge of them being able to be drastically different without faking anything, but that’s a bit hard to come up with.

i hate how people on this gotdamn hellsite dont acknowledge the fact that Cromartie High is the the purest, most perfect anime ever made

its a self-aware parody that makes fun of anime/tv tropes and the comedy is never a miss, its an absurdist comedians fever dream

the animation style is even a parody of stilted 80s gangster animes, and is also a parody of the genre


the characters despite how they look arent problematic, they even correct each other when the other is being an asshole, even in their inner monologues they correct themselves. watching them interact encourages you to actually be a good person??

for some reason the characters even delve into philosophical discussions about the government/ society/ education/ internet culture that, despite the comedic setting, are really meaningful

freddie mercurys in it

please watch cromartie, its such a good time

P.S. theres a live action movie, they exorcise a robot who keeps saying fuck

this has been a PSA

Guys, I realise most of you are US based and don’t realise this, but the next General Election in the UK will decide what we as a country want out of our system. 

We literally have the most left wing manifesto out of the labour party we’ve seen in years - they’re finally not just a centrist, almost policy for policy but slightly more left version of the tories. 

However, right-wing media is attempting to destroy our left wing leader. They’re smearing him left, right and centre. Hopelessly trying to make him out to be an ‘incapable leader’, as though ANY of the leaders we’ve had in the past few decades were the most respectable of people. 

Our right wing leader is essentially Cruella De Vil down to wanting to lift the ban on fox hunting. 

Can we talk about this more as a site?

You all blogged for Trump vs Clinton. Now can we pay attention to the rise of the right wing else where? Our left wing is promising nationalisation, free education and taxing the rich to fill our gaps but people still want to vote Tory despite them looking to privatise our health care, rip it to shreds first by giving their friends jobs in management and toss our education system up in the air. All because 1) Not enough people are voting and 2) the right wing is playing dirty tricks. 

What happens in our General Election decides how the UK interacts with Trump. Currently, Theresa is a loyal lap dog without a back bone to speak of. Be aware that politics in other countries exists.

Common experiences of lesbians who don’t know they’re lesbians yet

 Out of curiosity, I recently googled “Am I lesbian quiz”. Half the “Are You a Lesbian” quizzes just asked outright, “Are you attracted to women?” as though that isn’t the very answer a questioning lesbian is trying to figure out. The other half marked me as heterosexual for things like owning more nail varnish than dogs. I hope this list will give you more nuanced ideas to think about as you explore your identity.

These experiences are all really common among - but not universal or exclusive to - people who later realize they’re lesbians and find a comfortable home in the lesbian label and community.

It’s mostly stuff that I and other lesbians I know have wished we knew when we were first coming to grips with our lesbian identities, because the fact is it takes a long time to discover how common a lot of these experiences are among lesbians, and not knowing what to look for when trying to figure out if you’re a lesbian can be hard.

‘Attraction’ to men

  • Deciding which guys to be attracted to – not to date, but to be attracted to – based on how well they match a mental list of attractive qualities
  • Only developing attraction to a guy after a female friend expresses attraction to him
  • Getting jealous of a specific female friend’s relationships with guys and assuming you must be attracted to the guys she’s with (even if you never really noticed them before she was interested in them)
  • Picking a guy at random to be attracted to
  • Choosing to be attracted to a guy at all, not just choosing to act on it but flipping your attraction on like a switch – that’s a common lesbian thing
  • Having such high standards that literally no guy meets them – and feeling no spark of attraction to any guy who doesn’t meet them
  • Only/mostly being into guys who are gnc in some way
  • Only/mostly being attracted to unattainable, disinterested, or fictional guys or guys you never or rarely interact with
  • Being deeply uncomfortable and losing all interest in these unattainable guys if they ever indicate they might reciprocate
  • Reading your anxiety/discomfort/nervousness/combativeness around men as attraction to them
  • Reading a desire to be attractive to men as attraction to them
  • Having a lot of your ‘guy’ crushes later turn out to be trans women

Relationships with men

  • Dreading what feels like an inevitable domestic future with a man
  • Or looking forward to an idealized version of it that resembles literally no m/f relationship you’ve ever seen in your life, never being able to picture any man you’ve actually met in that image

  • Being repulsed by the dynamics of most/all real life m/f relationships you’ve seen and/or regularly feeling like “maybe it works for them but I never want my relationship to be like that”

  • Thinking you’re commitmentphobic because no relationship, no matter how great the guy, feels quite right and you drag your feet when it comes time to escalate it

  • Going along with escalation because it seems like the 'appropriate time’ or bc the guy wants it so bad, even if you personally aren’t quite ready to say I love you or have labels or move in together etc.

  • Or jumping ahead and trying to rush to the ‘comfortably settled’ part of relationships with guys, trying to make a relationship a done deal without investing time into emotional closeness
  • Feeling like you have to have relationships with guys and/or let them get serious in order to prove something, maybe something nebulous you can’t identify

  • Only having online relationships with guys; preferring not to look at the guys you’re interacting with online; choosing not to meet up with a guy even if you seem very into him and he reciprocates and meeting up is totally realistic
  • Getting a boyfriend mostly so other people know you have a boyfriend and not really being interested in him romantically/sexually
  • Wishing your boyfriend was more like your female friends
  • Wishing your boyfriend was less interested in romance and/or sex with you and that you could just hang out as pals
  • Thinking you’re really in love with a guy but being able to get over him in such record time that you pretend to be more affected than you are so your friends don’t think you’re heartless
  • After a breakup, missing having a boyfriend more than you miss the specific guy you were with
  • Worrying that you’re broken inside and unable to really love anyone

Sex with men

  • Having sex not out of desire for the physical pleasure or emotional closeness but because you like feeling wanted
  • OR: preferring to 'be a tease’ to feel wanted but feeling like following through is a chore
  • Only being comfortable with sex with men if there’s an extreme power imbalance and your desires aren’t centred
  • Using sex with men as a form of self-harm
  • Feeling numb or dissociating or crying during/after sex with men (even if you don’t understand that reaction and think you’re fine and crying etc for no reason)
  • Being bored with sex with men/not understanding what the big deal is that makes other women want it
  • Doing it anyway out of obligation or a desire to be a good sport/do something nice for him
  • Never/rarely having sexual fantasies about specific men, preferring to leave them as undetailed as possible or not thinking about men at all while fantasizing
  • Having to make a concerted effort to fantasize about the guy you’re “attracted” to

Early interest in women

  • Not recognizing past/current crushes on women until you’ve come to grips with your attraction to women
  • Being unusually competitive, shy, or eager to impress specific women when you’re not that way with anyone else
  • Wanting to kiss your female best friend on the mouth for literally any reason (”to practice for boys” included)
  • Getting butterflies or feeling like you can’t get close enough when cuddling with a close female friend
  • Looking at a close female friend and feeling something in your chest clench up and being overwhelmed with love for her - love you may read as platonic
  • Having had strong and abiding feelings of admiration for a specific female teacher, actor, etc., growing up that were deep and reverent
  • Having had an unusually close relationship with a female friend growing up that was different and special in a way you couldn’t articulate
  • Thinking relationships would be simpler “if only I were attracted to women/my best friend who would be perfect for me if she/I weren’t a girl”
  • When a female friend is treated badly by a man, having your protective thoughts turn in the direction of “if I was him/a man I’d never do that to her/my girlfriend”
  • Being utterly fascinated by any lesbians you know/see in media and thinking they’re all ultra cool people
  • Having your favourite character in every show be that one gay-coded or butch-looking woman (like Shego from Kim Possible or Starbuck from Battlestar Galactica)
  • Feeling weirdly guilty and uncomfortable in locker rooms etc., when your female friends are less clothed than they normally would be around men and being more careful not to look than they are

The 'straight’ version of you

  • Thinking that all straight girls feel at least some attraction to women
  • Thinking that your interest in seeing attractive women/scantily clad women/boobs is an artificial reaction caused by the objectification of women in media
  • Being really into how women look “aesthetically”/“just as artistic interest”
  • Thinking it’s objective and uncontested that almost all women are way more attractive than most men
  • Being a really intense LGBT+ “ally” and getting weirdly emotional about homophobia but assuming you’re just a Really Good Ally and v empathetic
  • Having like half your friend group from school turn out to be LGBT+
  • Getting emotional or having a strong reaction you don’t understand to f/f love stories etc.
  • Having had people think you were gay when you had no suspicion you were gay

Exploring attraction to women

  • Feeling like you could live with a woman in a romantic way, even if you can’t imagine doing anything sexual with a woman
  • Feeling like you could enjoy sexual interaction with a woman, even if you can’t imagine having romantic feelings for a woman
  • Thinking you couldn’t be a lesbian because you’re not attractive enough, cool enough, or otherwise in the same league as most of the women you know
  • Interacting with het sex/romance in media by imagining yourself in the man’s position or just never/rarely imagining yourself in the woman’s position
  • Really focusing on the women in het porn
  • Being really into the idea of kissing/being sexual with a woman 'to turn guys on’
  • Being really annoyed when guys actually do express interest in watching or joining in when you do that
  • Only feeling/expressing attraction to or sexual interest in women when you’re inebriated or otherwise impaired

Gender Feelings

  • Having a lot of conflicting gender feelings that are only possible to resolve once you understand you are/can be a lesbian
  • Thinking that being gnc and feeling a disconnect from traditional womanhood mean that you can’t be a woman even if that’s what feels closest to right - many lesbians are gnc and many lesbians feel disconnected from traditional womanhood since it’s so bound up in heteropatriarchy
  • Knowing you’re attracted to women and not being able to parse that (esp + any gender nonconformance) as gay, taking a long time to figure out if you’re a straight man or a lesbian
  • Being dysphoric about the parts of you that make straight men think your body is owed to them, having to figure out what that dysphoria means for/to you
  • Knowing you’re attracted to women, but feeling weirdly guilty and uncomfortable trying to interact with them as a straight man, and only later realizing you’re actually a trans lesbian
  • Knowing you’re gay, but experiencing a lot of the symptoms of comp het when you try to interact with men romantically/sexually, and only later realizing you’re a trans lesbian and not a gay man
  • Being nonbinary and taking a long time to sort through being able to respect/understand your nonbinary identity and your lesbianness at the same time

Considering lesbianism

  • Wanting to be a lesbian but feeling like if you don’t already know you are one you can’t be
  • Feeling guilty about wanting to be a lesbian, feeling like you’re just attention-seeking or trying to be trendy
  • Suppressing your lesbian dreams because you think exploring that desire would mean you’re a bad/homophobic person using lesbianness selfishly
  • Wishing you were a lesbian to escape the discomfort of dating men
  • Fantasizing about how much fun it would be to be a lesbian and just be with women/a specific woman, but thinking that can’t be for you
  • Worrying that some of your past attraction to men was actually real so you can’t be a lesbian
  • Worrying that bc you can’t be 100% sure you’re not attracted to men and can’t be 100% sure you won’t change your mind, you can’t be a lesbian
  • Worrying that you only want to be a lesbian because of trauma and that means your lesbianness would be Fake
  • Worrying that trauma-induced complications in how you experience sex (e.g., a habit of self-harming via sex w men or a fear of any sex at all) mean you’re not a Real Lesbian

Every item on this list is common among Real Lesbians. It’s all Normal Lesbian Stuff. If you’re worried that you can’t be a lesbian even though it’s the life you really want for yourself, I hope this gives you permission to explore that. You are allowed to be a lesbian. 

And if you’re not sure yet – if you took the time to read this entire thing because you’re curious about your identity, if you identified with a bunch of items on this list – you may or may not be a lesbian, but friend, you almost certainly aren’t cishet. Welcome.

(I’d love to hear other things lesbians wish you’d known were A Thing when you were first exploring your identity!)

Why Ochako is Actually a Complex Character

I was going to save this post until after finals were over for me BUT THEN I REMEMBERED IT IS MY DARLING PRINCESS’S BIRTHDAY TODAY AND WHAT BETTER WAY TO CELEBRATE HER BIRTHDAY THAN TO MAKE A POST THAT CELEBRATES HER.

 So leggo.

 Now I won’t go into overall details about her because I already did that in this post that you can read right here, which I essentially discussed how she’s actually an amazing WSJ heroine and whoever voted her the worst should put their heads in sand because they don’t deserve to see the rest of the world (I kid I kid, promise!).

 Rather, I wanted to challenge the viewpoints people have of her and really argue on the fact that Ochako Uraraka is actually more of a complex character than we give her credit for. Most often than not, the fandom looks towards Katsuki or Izuku or even Todoroki and they build them up and go on and on about their complexity in the series. Hell, those three are my friend’s favorite characters and they are fan favorites for a multitude of reasons that they deserve. I myself have made numerous posts about Katsuki since we are given such complex views of him as well as the others in the series. They are the main focus in the story and their growth has been some of the best we’ve ever seen in a series.

 However, characters iike Ochako, who actually does have a lot of complexity and dimensionality, get lost in their wake and I really want to talk about that.

 Most often than not, when we see Ochako, we see this bubbly smiling girl who has such a wonderful and positive attitude that sometimes comes off ditzy. One glance at her and the words that come to mind are cute, adorable, fluffy, etc because that is the type of character that she mostly is. She is the female support of Izuku and the way she contributes to the story is with her adorable attitude that lightens up the mood in certain situations like the Ground Zero fight and even the room competition (did you see how cute she was with Iida’s glasses!?).

 Yet, what bothers me and possibly other really hardcore fans of her is that she isn’t just this bubbly character that smiles on the side but she does have complex issues that really makes her character more interesting in comparison to other characters.

 I mean for starters, this girl is the QUEEN of keeping her emotions from people and really suppressing them in most situations and not letting them get in the way of what she wants to get done.

 For example, the first real example of this is when she lost to her fight with Katsuki.

Now let’s remember situational factors going into this: we just found out her true goals into going to heroics (which was said in a much more serious tone than we had ever seen from her before)

we found out she was incredibly nervous to be facing Katsuki (and again WAS SUPPRESSING HER EMOTIONS)

we saw her rejecting Izuku’s help (as well as her little speech about feeling ashamed)


we saw her PUTTING HER ALL INTO THAT FIGHT TO SHOW HER TRUE STRENGTH

 So seeing her crying when she’s speaking to her family isn’t just some small defeated thing but it really gives us so much insight in her character and who she is as a person. We finally see how truly hard she is on herself and the perfectionist personality that she usually keeps hidden from others. You can even see by her facial expression when Izuku left that she put on a face for him to not let him get more worried then he already was. 

 And then don’t even get me started with her attitude during the Hero License Exam because oh my gosh, that was so powerful from her.

 From that, we first see her being so strategic af:

Then we get this amazing speech from Izuku about her and how he could have told the difference between her and Kemi (notice the plan part!)

Of course her being a BA here cuz eh why not, she’s really grown from her training

THEN LET’S SKIP TO HER PUSHING HER FEELINGS DOWN FOR IZUKU


I just

There are so many moments of Ochako that I missed that would have proved my point even further than this but these moments here showcase how complex and really interesting Ochako is as a character.

 The bubbly personality that we see from her is only a piece of the whole picture and you could even argue that she’s so good at suppressing her emotions that it’s the personality she chooses to portray to others to keep her other emotions away from people because she doesn’t want to burden others. I personally don’t know if that’s true at all and maybe it is, maybe it isn’t but the fact is that she isn’t just some character that sits on the side and looks cute and adorable. There are so elements about her that makes her different and the fight she had with Katsuki really changed her as well as her inspiration from Izuku. She took both of those interactions with those characters and used them to better herself and it’s just SO POWERFUL. Not many shounen female heroines do that so it’s so refreshing to have Ochako be the way she is.

 Overall, as obvious as it must be, Ochako is one of my favorite characters and I’m so excited to see the growth she’s going to have more in the series. Her feelings for Izuku got cut off during the exam so that’s an arc we need to get from her and I know I want to see Ochako kicking Katsuki’s ass and actually winning to show how much she’s grown from the beginning. I have so much hope that Horikoshi has so many plans for her character and I’m so excited to see what he has in store for her and how he will continue to build upon her.

 Regardless, Happy Birthday Ochako!

 TLDR: Ochako is a very complex character and I wish more people celebrated that.

anonymous asked:

Can I ask why you ship kamisero? This is not to be mean, I just can't remember a lot of their interactions in the manga or anime and would love to be reminded of why they work well as a couple

!!!!! Ooookay this is kind of a weird question for me and I don’t really know how to properly answer because… uhm… they’re kind of always together?? Actually??? I mean they haven’t really been the protagonists in any arc so it’s mostly background stuff but when they appear they’re more often than not together - here, have some panels I’ve found skimming real fast through the parts I remembered them being there

(+Mina!!! squad moment heck yes!!)

(+Kiri!!! more squad moments!!!!!!!)

(real talk more often than not if Kami and Mineta are in the same place Sero is right there with them, I try to pretend that’s not true but alas)

(+Baku!!! Even more squad moments!!!! This one’s from an extra, I can’t find the translated version anymore - rip - but they’re trying to get Baku to play the thumb game I’m gonna cry this squad will kill me)

also on the cover of Vol 4 👌👌👌

The thing about me shipping them is that as I said I do prefer them as friends, which they are and it’s adorable, but I’m always up for entertaining the idea of good friends in romantic relationships so I’m 👍👍👍 about KamiSero too haha

Do you ever think about how wild the public perception of victuuri must be??

Like ok. Characters first.

Victor Nikiforov, who is considered to be this flirty playboy. He’s the perfect skater; elegant, refined, amazing jumps, spins, step sequences. He has it all, and he’s won it all. I bet you everybody thought Victor and Chris were fuckin or something b/c they’re obviously friends and you know what the media is like. 

Victor is such a private person; he’s really skilled in telling you everything while saying nothing. He’s got incredible press skills. I bet the media must be starving for another side of Victor–his love life most specifically. The playboy thing is most likely an exaggeration tabloids put together, and it sorta just caught on. All these reports of Victor being seen with so and so must mean he’s seeing them, right?

Victor has been called selfish before. It’s probably a very common belief that he’s quiet and serious and really only cares about himself and the ice. This cannot be further from the truth, but it’s how people see him. An immaculate god.

Then, Yuuri Katsuki. He’s sort of reclusive and doesn’t interact much. There’s not much on any of his social media accounts; the opposite of Victor. While Victor delivers constant content, Yuuri hides away. He avoids people, doesn’t really interact with fans, and seemingly snubs other competitors. 

People think he’s arrogant. Yuuri looks away from others like they’re not worth his time, which is totally uncalled for considering he can’t land his jumps, right? Yuuri’s spins and footwork are amazing, but he always falters technically. He gets a lot of flack from the press and the public for this; they say he’s mentally weak, he’s a mediocre skater at best, he should just stop trying. At times, Yuuri even believes them.

The beloved, sexy ice god versus the shy, weak underdog.

Most of the conversations about abuse I see on here ascribe a certain… intentionality? to abuse. And I mean, to abuse as a general concept. And while I have definitely encountered people who were wilfully and maliciously abusive, I think this is also part of a tendency to class people as ‘good’ and 'bad’ and credit bad things to individual agency, if that makes sense. Plenty of abusers are just damaged people acting out harmful patterns without recognizing them. My father, for instance, since I’ve had a lot of time to become objective about him. I’m confident that at no point did he make a decision to terrorize and shame me into any plan of his. He was just an angry, self-centered asshole who should not have been a father and blamed other people for his failings.

None of this is in any way intended to excuse abuse. On the contrary, abusive behavior is never, ever acceptable. The point is that you don’t have to make any conscious decision to be abusive, and you don’t have to belong to some class of “abusive people”. Anyone can perpetrate abusive behavior. Know what it looks like, think about your interactions, and see whether they build people up or tear them down.

I really want to see Lena interacting with people other than Kara. Like her geeking out about science and technology with Winn, talking about her last photoshoot with James, playing pool with Alex and Maggie.

I wanna hear her talk about her sexuality and mentioning something about how “it was another reason for my mother not to love me” and Maggie just gives her a knowingly look and a soft dimpled smile.

Also Maggie apologizing for arresting her and Lena being like “don’t worry, you were just doing your job”.

And J'onn inviting her to the DEO to help them improve tech stuff because they trust Lena Luthor and believe she is not like her family.

I really wanna see Lena Luthor having friends and feeling loved and supported.

do you have any tips on guessing someone's rising sign? 😭

Aries rising: they are usually intimating at first and have a kind of electric vibe about them! They feel so warm and often have rugged and ruddy features about them! Sometimes they have noticeable scars in some way and have something distinctive about their hair or face and have an easy time blushing! They the ones who walk upright and sort of with a primitive stride! They’re pretty dynamic and energetic people as well and have a unmistakable youth about them! They can be a bit overwhelming and come on strong! Not in a bad way either! They just leave an impression. (Athletic looking and have sort of built bodies)

Taurus rising: they feel so warm and inviting! They have this aloof and unfocused look in their eyes and seem a bit out of touch. They’re very earthy and have a sensuous looking bodies(curvy and or thic in some way even if they’re more lean style they have a sort of curvy aspect to them usually the buttocks and or thighs) they have long flowing hair and at times it’s straight! They usually have thick necks too and aren’t the types to “side eye” they usually move there whole heads when they’re looking at something and can be a bit like a bull when they stride! They’re very pleasant! And have such a sweet vibe even if they have a less then easy going sun sign or moon. They are super stubborn and are the types to get possessive! You usually catch them in comfy clothes and sweats at first and they might be the types that you notice there “possessions” first.

Gemini rising: very mischievous! They have a devilish and childlike smirk! They tend to be fast moving and fast walkers! You’ll point them out by the sound of their voices! Aha they’re quite the talkers! But one way to distinguish them is like most air risings they’re not the most talkative people when you first meet them! They can be standoffish and even shy. They have an easy time getting things done and can be quietly intellectual! The ones you don’t see doing any work in school but somewhere somehow maintain all A’s and B’s. They are rather skinny and often have even if they’re thick longher necks! They have distracted eyes and tend to look around at the “big picture” so to speak! They look around their whole environment and often do so any time they’re walking into a new place or area for the first time! They have to take it in! They often look bored and anxious as if they’re ready for shit to hit the fan at a moments notice.

Cancer rising: quite-Quite-QUITE! They usually are deafly silent and don’t really come across as the in your face type of energy upon first meeting them. You feel almost at peace and comfortable in their presence! They have a nurturing and almost motherly energy upon meeting them. They’re eyes are often round and watery as if they could cry with a single gesture. They usually avoid eye contact unless they know you better and can have a disengaged presence about them. It’s often hard to gauge there personality as the moon tends to hide it. They are paler in there complexion and usually have soft and fragile skin. There limbs are lanky and they’re stomachs always have something that stands out about them! Be it a beer belly or a six pack there’s always something unique about it. They usually walk with a small leap and fro movement and in times of distress or confusion walk side to side in a crab like motion. These are usually the people who seem uncomfortable and off to the side of a room.

Leo rising: one word! EGO okay so with this rising you can feel them similarly to cancer but due to their radiant energy and the ego that comes with it! You can feel they’re ego without them even uttering a word. It’s the way they walk. Head held high. Arms swinging with entitlement and prestige. The unbothered looks here and there and the complete level of situational comfort wherever they are. They seem unmoved and rather content in whatever surrounding they find themselves in and seem to stake their owner ship of their surroundings like a lion. People are often going to notice them for better or worse and usually remember them. They’re the talk of the town and the one everyone knows. Even if they’re walking into a Walmart-people notice them. They have a warmth about them and can seem very open and exciting upon first meeting them! They’re the cool guy or gal who runs at the beat of there own horn! They usually have bright patterns on or a loud color that says “I’m here” a Sagittarius sun Scorpio moon I know who has his rising in this sign wears crimson reds and dark blacks with occasional patterned blue shirts and graphic tees. These natives are usually “watching” almost like a lion! They’re often skimming the room and occasionally staring folks down like prey.

Virgo rising: observant. They can be hard to sense much like Pisces they’re almost apart of their surroundings and blend right in. They can seem to themselves at first glance and usually seem off somewhere “mentally” and often don’t really seem “there” they have very petite frames and small features no matter there size! They have very “delicate” looking bodies and present themselves in a peaceful way! They often move quickly and can be gone before you even had enough time to process there existence! They’re very kind souls and often keep there distance when you first meet them! They cloak themselves in a mask of manners and politeness but often remain a level of space between them and you during such interactions. They’re the people whom walk into the room scanning it quickly as if they’re making a mental note of the characters involved.

Libra rising: charming and socially mastered. These people often have a almost godlike capability when it comes to the masses. Unless they’re an afflicted libra rising they tend to be seen in the crowd or with others. They thrive on interactions with others and often are well liked by there peers and those whom they meet. They have a very “perfect” type of vibe and can seem like ken doll and Barbie and I mean this in the nicest way! They just have very compartilized movements that seem to always fit together. They often have very fitting features in regards to them and most people say this is a very beautiful rising! I say all risings are beautiful! But I will say libra risings have a sensual type of look and can be a bit curvy similarly to Taurus risings! Oh and elf ears is a thing here aha! You’ll notice them immediately from their smiles

Scorpio rising: intense. Extremely mysterious energy and may keep you guessing. They can seem private and uninterested in their immediate environment. They usually have a strong glare and have sharp eye contact. They are usually tan skinned no matter what there race is and can have oily skin. Hair is curly. Like always..always curly. Jk aha but no seriously a lot of them and water signs in the Pluto decan tend to have curly hair. They also are magnetic no matter what they look like they have this captivating energy that always makes you do a double take. They also have a gait in their walk and can walk in a bowl-legged manner! As if there swinging their imaginary tail. They also have this natural sexual energy about them that is just there no matter what they’re wearing. They can seem blunt and unapproachable at first and can be hard to really “get to know” you’ll usually see them alone and separated from the group-there often the lone wolf and the ones who always make eye contact.

Sagittarius rising: they often have a very happy and infectious energy about them! They’re like always happy and optimistic when you meet them and have a quirky and bouncy personality. They often are laid back and have a chill and go with the flow attitude upon meeting them. They keep things light and avoid any heavy stuff. They also are the types to dip if things get weird or boring to soon. Fairly open people who sometimes slip to much information about themselves upon first meeting them. They’re easy to distract and even harder to reel back in! When they’re in a crowd they don’t know what to do with themselves and get overstimulated! They put on quite the show when a crowd is around and can be hard to settle down. They come across as nomadic and traveler types and can have a old time reggae feel about them. They have wide hips and can also be curvy and look good with weight! There bodies tend to naturally curve off towards their lower body. You’ll usually see them falling and or messing with their hair or body in some way!

Capricorn rising: they are super easy to spot. They look very serious even if they’re the most lighthearted person on earth they’ll have an intense and serious gaze about them when there face is in a rest position. They have one hell of a testing bitch face be it guy or gal. They have a beautifully crafted face and can have prominate boney features. They also have teeth that are very noticeable in a way and often have beautiful smiles. They can be tall but the women are usually short to medium height while the men are usually tall. They tend to walk slow from place to place and separate themselves quite a bit. They have a cold and almost scary energy about them when meeting them and can seem extremely disappointed in the people and setting that their in even when it’s not how they’re feeling! You often see these people in the middle of a task or looking down or straight ahead

Aquarius rising: these are hard to spot! But these natives are actually either super talkative or super quite there is not inbetween! The talkative ones are fast and shift quite a bit! They travel with a lot of restless energy and can seem on to the next topic before it’s even happened! The quite ones are pleasant and peaceful but mostly to themselves and try to avoid prolonged interactions that they don’t have to have. Both are aloof and seem a bit eccentric. There is an innovative and rebellious air to them and they can have odd style or even hair in some way. Since Uranus is an unusual planet these natives can and tend to look far out or different in some way like something unlike anything on this planet. You’ll often catch them laughing and giggling! They love to laugh and often tend to be laughing at what is in front of them or something they’re remembering

Pisces rising: unlike the other water sign risings although these natives are quite they also have an easy and flowing energy about them. You’ll often feel understood the moment you’re in their presence! They often seem older then they are on a mental level and can be very wise upon meeting them! There is a deep level of sensitivity and compassion they exude that makes you want to be careful and watchful in their presence of what you do and say. They have watery eyes like cancer and can seem very innocent and lost even if that’s not how they are. They are very elusive and hard to really get a grasp on. They tend to glide through the world and can feel like energy rather then an actual person. They come and go like a puff of smoke. You’ll usually see them looking like they’re dreaming in some way! These are the people you say hi to or try to talk to that take a minute or two to register what’s going on!

anonymous asked:

what placements tend to make one social or popular ?? what can afflict that??

🌙💦✨-
I mainly wrote what came to mind and briefly summarized why I included the placement but enjoy lol.


✨💗✨Social/Popular/Known for:

I’m going to add what I believe often contributes to popularity and social status. So I won’t include every planet just because I put down post of them for a house.

✨This will mainly be planets in the Tenth and Eleventh houses as well as planets in masculine signs.

✨Sun in 10th: Great reputation and respected by many unless other factors interfere. Well known for achievements.

✨Moon in 10th: Much of your life is on display for those to see. Well known because you’re very public with things and often become involved in things that make you notorious. Everyone knows of you one way or another tbh.

✨Venus in 10th: Usually loved by many. Many people see you as attractive or popular or maybe see you for some other Venusian quality. Pretty admirable and often maintain a clean reputation. Socially ambitious, can seek popularity.

✨Mars in 10th: Not the best placement for social popularity. Known for ambition or Martian qualities. May not be the most admirable person. However you’ll make yourself known or acquire a reputation somehow. Maybe noticed for hard work.

✨Jupiter in 10th: Greatly admired and often have great luck with their reputations. Expansive and happy and everyone knows it. You’re likely to be favored by many people for who you are or what you’ve done (doesn’t exactly mean fame but some degree of admiration and recognition) .

✨Saturn in 10th: Start from the bottom and aim for the top. Known for their achievements and hard work.

✨Neptune in 10th: Admired or idealized by people. In love with the idea of you rather than real you.

✨Pluto in 10th: Feared,admired, maybe both. Powerful position for admiration and for your reputation.

✨Sun in 11th: Naturally social and popular folk. Attracts friends with ease and often belongs to more than 1 friend group. You are known to shine and are very well known by the people. Diverse groups of friends including some friends of high status.

✨Moon in 11th: Attracts many friends that come and go. A natural socialite who knows how to bring people together. Friends are an extension to the family. Many friendships with women.

✨Mercury in 11th: Very intellectual and chatty. This brings you many friends as you love to communicate and share your ideas. Many friends are very smart and intellectual.

✨Neptune in 11th: Very indiscriminate with who they associate with. This promises many friendships. May have issues knowing who real friends are, your associations with people can confuse others (you may look like you’re friends with this one person or group to everyone else while you could in reality dislike them or they dislike you)

✨Planets in the 12th house: Need much alone time recharge the planet. Expression of planet is drowned and pulled inwards. Certain qualities related to the planets are kept secret.

@kinfirms​ tagged me in a post talking about how internet “mom” culture is toxic, (I saw your tags, dont worry <3) and wanted to talk about it a little, but without the queer phobic language it was giving off.

For the most part, I fully and readily agreed with parts of the post detailing how adults can and do behave inappropriately in online spaces towards minors, and how the parental name thing can be a power move. 

I grew up with a lot of fandom “mom” types, who with hindsight, turned out to be rather toxic and predatory. One of them actually took great joy in being a “corrupting” force, and would make lewd jokes and inappropriate comments towards us. And us being vulnerable kids who wanted to fit in and belong went along with it, because it made us feel special to be talked to like we were fellow adults. 

Except we weren’t fellow adults and nor were we being treated as such. We were impressionable youths being treated like toys to stroke an older person’s ego, and that was 110% not okay, and those adults should have known better not to engage with us on those topics.  

I’m hyper aware of being an older person in certain groups now, and try to act accordingly. I try to distance myself while managing to remain encouraging and supportive and hopefully, a positive signifier that people like me can and do grow up into happy (semi-)functional adults. I know there were times growing up when I feared I would not.

I will also never insist that anyone call me “mom”. It’s not a name I picked for myself. It’s an honorific deserving of great respect and mindfulness towards those who gave it to me, not the other way around. People can use it if they want to, and I will respond to it if people use it, but it’s not a role or title or sign of authority, and it’s 100% up to others if they want to use it or not, I don’t mind either way. And just for the record, I also respond to Aunt, Sister, Cousin, Bib, or even my rarely used actual name, Joy :)

I work very hard to respect the boundaries of others, and adhere to my own rules of interaction. I don’t follow back anyone under the age of 18 (with very few exceptions), and I always try to ensure the age of someone when they start talking to me about certain things. 

Most of the people calling me “mom”? Seem to be in their early 20s, chronically ill or queer like me, and or at college age and going through that weird panicked stage of “help, I need an adultier adult how the heck do you make a food budget” so it’s not too much of a problem, but I still take those extra steps anyway. 

I tag my work, I put it under cuts and generally make it known that I don’t want anyone under the age of 18 to read my 18+ work, because it’s the responsible adult thing to do—and it’s my responsibility to lay down those terms. Not the minor. 

If a minor ignores my requests, my tags and the numerous other steps I put in the way to keep my NSFW work hidden? That’s on them, and I can only hope they find it positive and maybe possibly affirming as well—just don’t tell me about it. (I speak from experience, as a minor who went onto 18+ forums looking for something that would show I wasn’t alone with my thoughts and feelings. I found acceptance in queer fanfic that society and family otherwise denied. I wasn’t awful for liking both Superman and Louise Lane, I wasn’t awful and wrong or alone for not being sure if I wanted to be Princess Leia or be with her. And that was very important for 15 year old me, even if it would take another 15 years for me to feel safe enough to tell others.)

When people started calling me “mom” of their own volition, I had a real internal debate over how I felt over using that same moniker others had used before me, and done so in a harmful manner. I wasn’t too keen on it at first, it felt weird, but when people kept on using it without me prompting them to, I came to the decision that hey, it’s just a fun nickname poking fun at my personality, so I just kinda rolled with it. But I also made the conscious decision that if I was going to allow for that nickname, I would strive very hard to be worthy of it and be the adult I needed as a young person, and not like the people I had known.

But that all said? Not all adults take this mindset, and do not behave appropriately towards teenagers and young adults, and you should absolutely be wary of anyone who puts themselves in that position of authority.* It makes me extremely uncomfortable when I see other adults talk about younger people as their “minions” or pets. 

They are not. 

They are people who are deserving of your fundamental respect and often looking for some sort of help or guidance from a role model they lack in real life, or even just want friendly people to talk to about the things they love. They are not there to prop up your ego. Don’t do that shit. Reflect on your own behavior and say “if this was my child, would I be happy about the way I am interacting with them?” 

If the answer is “no” or “I’m not sure”, that’s also a no, and you need to back the fuck off and reevaluate how you interact with others as a whole.

If you are in a fandom or online forum space where the adults are not behaving mindfully of your age, undermine you, or insist on inserting themselves in your life as an authoritarian parental figure? Go with your gut instinct and get the fuck out of dodge. 

You are no one’s minion. You are you, with your own boundaries and levels of comfort. Don’t let anyone try to take them from you or make you feel bad for being uncomfortable with their behavior. That’s a common tactic used by abusers, and if you say to someone “what you are doing makes me uncomfortable” and their response isn’t “I’m sorry, how can I change that?”, but defensive anger or guilt tripping you? Fuck ‘em. There are other groups, other people to talk to. Make your own if you have to. Block anyone that makes you feel uncomfortable. You don’t have to put up with that bullshit to prove your own maturity or worth.


*And just because I feel this is important to say: please question me. Challenge me, point out when I say or do something that makes you feel uncomfortable. I won’t be mad or offended. I welcome corrective feedback. Tell me if I use an out dated term or if I word something poorly so I can apologize, reevaluate my behavior and try to change for the better. I’m human and therefore always learning and making mistakes, but they come from a place of ignorance, never malice. Take care of yourselves out there <333

Listen

Either u shipped km or not that doesn’t change the fact they went to Japan together so don’t fucking dare acting like u live with them and saying stupid things because your shipped didn’t sail and don’t u fucking dare to shut up us because that non of your business !!! A side of shipped thing the members are so fucking love each others ok?! Calling us delulu when your people actually are . did we make drama about that v/k rumor going jeju ? that turn out it’s was made up No we didn’t , when jm said he went to Sg house did u guys make a big deal about it? When jm went out with j did u guys said something about it? Again No but when km went to Japan together you guys dead ass said that the trip is fucking plan by bh? Even disrespect the members families by saying that jk dad & jm brother went to send them off to the airport it’s part of plan not make people suspect about v/k relationship? Or saying T should leave his family and go spend his with jk? Are u fucking kidding with me or what? No matter what close you are to your friends your family come first do u think T would choose km over his family?! Shipped who ever u want but there is limited and don’t crossed the line and learn respect each others + I don’t hate V/K but some v/k immature shippers is disgusting me not only disrespect to km but others every time v/k interact with other members you people said it’ either a fan service or to blocked them, as an ex vkook shippers it’s make me sad because a lot of my friend as V/k are good to me and those immature ones trying to make them look so bad , this not just about V/K but all immature shippers should stop and respect the members if not then u don’t deserved to be called as a Fan

Lastly instead of fighting for shipped things why don’t we fight for the vote things? You guys have a time to start the fanwars but not for the vote?

After all we are from the same fandom we are here to support the members not for a shipped things either u support them all or don’t called yourself A R M Y thank you

anonymous asked:

(marketing anon) WAIT will you explain the anime marketing stratgey to me?? - esp. soukoku please, I'M INTRIGUED

what do you mean by ‘the soukoku situation’?

Ok, let’s talk about The Soukoku Marketing Strategy

disclaimer: this post reflects my own opinion as a marketing strategist and does not in any way claim to provide 100% true facts. Also, this is gonna be very long. 

Let’s start saying that I have no knowledge of how the Japanese market works, but the BSD marketing strategy always impressed me very much, especially if compared with the anime I’m the most familiar with: Haikyuu. 

Generally speaking, BSD’s strategy is a hella good strategy. It created a deep connection with the city the anime is set in (Yokohama), with the museums and everything concerning the real life authors, and, especially, with the fandom, providing a ton of official art (featuring all the characters) and extra content to keep them engaged while the anime is not running. 

And we have to thank Bones studio for this. I have the feeling they are investing A LOT of money and effort in the BSD anime, treating it as a very special project (see: the movie, the advertisement for the DVDs, and the panel they held at AX). I think BSD for Bones is what we call “a question mark on the way to become a rising star”. This is made possible probably because Bones has BNHA (their “cash cow”) to provide the money for it. 

Moving on. 

There’s a saying in marketing that goes: don’t sell what you produce but produce what you can sell. And that’s what Bones is doing with Soukoku. 

If you look at it, there’s no canon reason for Chuuya to be featured so heavily on the official art. I love Chuuya, but he’s a very much side character that had probably less amount of screen time than any other side character, not to mention how rarely he’s featured in the manga.  But, in marketing, we couldn’t care any less about things like this. Chuuya is one of the fandom’s most loved character and, most of all, he’s a character that sells. A LOT. 

And you know who’s the other most loved character? Dazai. You don’t need to be a marketing research expert, you just need to go on google, search of one of them and 90% of the fan made material about them has them together. As tiny as it is, from what I saw the 70% of the BSD fandom is made by people who ship or generally enjoy Soukoku. 

I’m sure Bones is very much aware of this, as they are aware of the fandom’s discontent with the lack of canon content about them (looking at it objectively, there’s no reason for this ship to be this popular, they barely interacted twice - TWICE - ). 

And you know which marketing strategy is always effective? Giving people what they want. And what do people want? Soukoku. What do people buy? Soukoku. So what are we going to give them? Of course, Soukoku. Do we care about the fact that in canon they are supposed to hate each other? Absolutely fucking not. In fact, what Bones is proving is a very much shipping form of Soukoku:  

And, of course, the greatest example of them all (HONESTLY WHAT THE FUCK)

I have no idea if the Bones staff truly ships Soukoku as much as we do or if they are doing it just to make us spend money and to keep our attention towards the product as high as possible. The only thing I’m sure of is that this strategy is working, very well actually

I am a Soukoku shipper, I recognize the fact that this is nothing but a very well targeted marketing campaign, but I don’t care. I crave Soukoku, I’m upset by the lack of Chuuya (and DazaxChuuya interactions) in canon and, as fake as it might be, I’m thankful for the content I’m receiving. 

You can call it baiting, but I prefer to call it a win-win situation. 

Ascendant - Descendant

The 1st house in your chart is marked by your Ascendant on the rightmost point and the 7th house is marked by your Descendant on your leftmost point. 

Your Rising Sign / Ascendant is how you express yourself, your first point of action. Together your Ascendant and Descendant play an important role with how you interact with others, especially in how you form relationships with others. Your 1st House, and the planets you may have there, are how you attract people and what you are attracted to. Your 7th House is ‘how you go from there’ forming closer, more significant relationships and dealing with them thereafter. 

Ascendants/Descendants are opposing signs, which perfectly describes the duality of what we look for in others, and what we want others to see in us, which can often be contradictory, but complimentary when we allow it. Knowing how the ASC/DEC axis effects your relationships can be very helpful in overcoming issues you regularly face. 

ASC / DEC:

Aries/Libra: You look for relationships that fulfill your drive for excitement but you are often more concerned with your own wants, rather than the other persons, which leads you to boredom and ended connections. 

Taurus/Scorpio: You are warm and want to give out your love and support, but your insecurities can make you cold and convinced that you can’t give out anything, especially if you’ve given yourself to the wrong people.

Gemini/Sagittarius: You look for flowing communication and something to keep you interested, but you need to work harder at listening and balancing relationships if you long for a stronger companionship.

Cancer/Capricorn: You look for security and support in relationships, but too easily neglect yourself and your own ability to nurture yourself when you revolve your whole life and activities around someone else. 

Leo/Aquarius: You are attracted to people who can show you the delights of the world out there other than yourself, but things can suddenly get burned when the other person isn’t seeing something from only your viewpoint.

Virgo/Pisces: You are a helpful, hardworking friend and always see people at their best. But there is likely the problem of being used for your compassion and healing, which you only notice once you realize you’re facing your problems alone.

Libra/Aries: You want friends that can share your life with you and don’t feel yourself unless you have other people, which will become a problem if you don’t allow yourself more independence to empower yourself. 

Scorpio/Taurus: You strive for deep, secure, passionate relationships but due to your strong need for control, being hurt can cause heavy resentment which you’ll carry forever if you don’t transform from it. 

Sagittarius/Gemini: You like freedom in friendships and people to experience things with you that are worthwhile. But you are quick to make assumptions and sometimes act too bluntly on something you don’t fully understand, which frustrates others AND yourself. 

Capricorn/Cancer: You seek people with strong ideals and always offer support and security to others. But you can see flexibility as ‘having no control’, when in fact it would benefit you to learn to adapt to others lifestyles when they really matter to you. 

Aquarius/Leo: You are attracted to people who can offer you something wild to experience or feel, as your own feelings are harder to express. Relationships usually end when there is a detachment of you to their feelings and their interests.

Pisces/Virgo: You are a giver, extremely empathetic and for this reason are drawn to people who you can feel most. But your idealism often ends relationships when you’re faced with the reality of who they are.

Midheaven/Imum Coeli (MC/IC) interpretation coming soon!

Lifehacker just posted a terrible article about how to interact with service animals and I’m willing to bet it was written by an abled writer without consulting enough disabled people/service animal handlers because the only advice they should be doling out on how to interact with service dogs is “DON’T.”


Seriously people, no matter how cute the pup is, just IGNORE service animals. They are doing a job. Distracting them can actually be life-threatening. Their handlers just want to go about their day. Don’t use disability or disability aids (including service dogs) as conversation starters. And you can’t tell by looking if a service dog is assisting with anxiety, PTSD, or other conditions that would mean strangers approaching will have a serious negative effect on the handler.


IGNORE. IGNORE. IGNORE.

There is no shortage of NON-service dogs you can interact with in the world. Leave handler teams alone. Even if your neighbor’s friend’s sister has a service dog and doesn’t mind letting people pet it, that doesn’t make it ok for you to approach handlers and ask to pet their dog. Just leave them alone. Please.
