I’ll make a master post of all answered messages within the next few days so I don’t spam people’s dashboards 😁

Thank you guys for thinking of me and wanting to send me your thoughts every week!!! It wouldn’t be the same otherwise. In fact, it’s why I stay up in the first place lol.

Oh babe, thank you! I just draw them on before I put on foundation. Then I use a flat brush to apply my makeup around them. My natural brows are very similar to my brows with a lil makeup on them tho. Also, eyebrows scissors are a must.

Welcome to the Admin Hy and Low get lazier by the second Contest!!!

Because we are lazy (like stated above) instead of making our own Homocidal Valentines Day Cards, we have decided to hold a little contest where you guys get to make them instead!!! (our laziness is the best isn’t it?)

The rules to this contest are pretty simple-

  1. submit your finished cards to HVN OR tag them as Homocidal Valentines Day Cards (we would prefer submissions since we don’t want to run the risk of missing any of the cards)
  2. Use either the Pre-made cards above OR your own cards (the choice is up to you)
  3. MULTIPLE SUBMISSIONS ARE NOT ONLY ACCEPTED BUT WELCOMED (especially if you send us like fuckin photosets, we love that shit tbh)
  4. contesters understand that a Master Post of the winners will be posted to HVN at the end of the contest. This means that we may add your card to this post, and while the original creators of the cards will be tagged, it will be a separate post from the original cards (meaning that anyone who doesn’t submit their card may end up having their card added to a post that is not their own)
  5. The contest ends on Feb 12th/13th (This depends on the turn out; If we have few submissions it’ll be the 13th, if we have a ton then perhaps the 12th)

here is an example of what a card might look like-

While there is no real prize, the Winners cards will be added to a master post of the Top 10 Cards of the contest (though we may make other master posts of runner up cards if there are a large number or submissions/posts).

There may also be a possibility that the VA of the winning cards will voice them!

The Winners will be decided based on general response to the cards (tags, notes, reblogs, etc.), originality, humor, and the Abridged Casts response to them. 

If there’s a certain character we missed that you would like to do one for, feel more than welcomed to do so! We know we missed a few (like Oikawa and Kuroo), so don’t feel like they’re off limits for the contest!

The Contest will close at the end of the day on Feb. 12th, and the the Top Ten Cards will be posted in a master post  on Valentines Day, so until then have fun and make some cards!!!

Learning to read was hard for Cass.  Interpreting the written word is far different from interpreting body language, and Cass’s brain is wired differently as a result of her abusive childhood.  But after Cass had to ask Steph to read a ransom note aloud in order to continue chasing down criminals (Batgirl vol. 2), she realized that knowing how to read would be useful.

[Batgirl #67]

Because of Cass’s learning disability, it takes her a long time to make significant progress.  Babs coaches her and explores different methods of learning, and eventually Cass is able to read full length novels (albeit slowly).  When Cass did learn how to read, she fell in love with books.  A well-written book is far less predictable than a person, and Cass loved how words seemed to make places and characters come alive in her head.  She would read anything from historical fiction to high fantasy, but quickly became able to tell when a story was poorly written.  The characters would seem less real, and the words wouldn’t flow as easily.  Cass began to spend a lot of free time in the library, and Babs would point out good books that she remembered from her time as a librarian.  Tim also had quite a repertoire of books from his childhood, since he needed something to entertain himself with when his parents were away.  He let Cass have free reign of his collection and gave her recommendations.  The rest of the batfamily also began to gift her books that they enjoyed when they learned about her new passion.

Cass never grew tired of how written words could somehow transform into people as though personalities were interwoven into pages.  She marveled at how she could spend hours completely immersed in a story, oblivious to the world around her (or as oblivious as she can get with her skills).  Books had opened up entire worlds for her.  She secretly hoped that someday she would be able to create worlds of her own.    

poppypicklesticks  asked:

I wonder how much of the most disturbing stuff from the manga is going to make it into Crystal? Like Venus hallucinating Moon's rotting corpse, Koan burning a little girl to death or the Witches 5 implied to be five human girls who had demonic alien parasites planted in them and had their bodies completely taken over. Mind you, what happened to Mimete in the original anime is easily one of the most disturbing fates to happen to any of the villains, ever.

Yeah, I’m actually really looking forward to seeing what Crystal dishes out in the nightmare fuel department. The manga had some REALLY disturbing, fucked up shit (I’m going to make a nightmare fuel master post one of these days). In the first arc alone, Usagi has a nightmare where Mamoru comes back as a rotting zombie.

queen-anarchy-666  asked:

he's still adorable without his goggles XD

Oh, believe me, I know.  I may be posting a lot of goggless Engi-stare-into-your soul, but the Texan is still one of my favorite mercs.

In fact, I just made a gif from this video that I was going to slap onto your post highlighting how gosh darn handsome he is, especially without his goggles, but I guess I’ll share it here instead.

 Gosh darn it.  Even when, or especially when, his gear is mowing down the enemy team, he is still so adorable..

17 or 21 for Alistair/Roselyn or Cullen/Nevana please please please :3

#17: Goofy Kiss
Alistair x Roselyn

I went for 17 and Alistair/Roselyn because I’d done 21 and Cullen/Nevena sooo… Plus I’m really enjoying Roselyn and Alistair atm for some reason. Might be something to do with how much I ignored Roselyn/tortured her in the past. All this fluff is making up for it!

Kiss Meme Master Post (for reference)

As King, he was expected to be productive. To read through the treaties put before him. The letters, the warrants, any and all paperwork Alistair always preferred to read before he signed anything. Something Roselyn had told him to do from the very start. Also, something her father had told her and her brother.

It was a good, but foolish man who trusted blindly. And a shrewd and wise man who was always vigilant.

But none of that mattered at that moment.

He was never particularly productive when his wife was around. Always leaving things on his desk half-finished to go and spend time with her. Whether it was five minutes or five hours, nothing distracted him more than his wife and his Queen.

Except maybe his wife and his Queen who was heavily pregnant for the first time since they had both been cured of the Taint.

She had been pregnant before, but had never been able to carry their child to full term. The poison in her blood had attacked the baby. She had lost more than was fair. Now though, she was blooming. Seven and a half months of waiting, only a month and a half to go.

All her dresses had been let out, and her engorged belly meant she couldn’t walk far or very fast. Alistair’s councillor’s though insisted she keep up appearances for gatherings and feasts. At least until she was too big to walk.

She sat in Alistair’s chair, a cushion pressed against her back for some additional comfort. The King knelt before her, arms tucked around her body allowing him as close as possible to her and her belly. For comfort, and because no one else was around, she wore a simple linen shift with a heavy cape to keep out the chill.

Roselyn’s shift sat bunched over her belly putting no barrier between her skin and Alistair’s mouth and he kissed, uttering words of adoration and impatience. He was like a child waiting for Winter Send. Every day he urged the child to come sooner, that everything was ready for them, they just needed to turn up.

And everything was ready. He had commissioned the room beside his and Roselyn’s be turned into a nursery. In the past, royal children were sent away, raised by their own household. Alistair had put his foot down on that matter. Their children would be raised by their parents, as Roselyn’s parents had raised her. He would not have his children viewing him or her as little more than strangers.

The nursery was almost the same size as their own room, decorated in the softest colours to make it a serene place to grow up. A master carpenter had been hired to build a crib, toys, a rocking horse and other things for the child. One of Alistair’s favourite places was the window seat which looked out over the gardens. He told Roselyn time and again how lovely it would be to sit with the baby in the evening with all the scents of spring and summer around them.

“Haven’t you got work to do?” Asked Roselyn from above him, curling her fingers through his hair lovingly. He didn’t answer, pretending he hadn’t heard her. “Alistair?”

“…Yes.” He grumbled. “But this is more important.”

“More important than ruling your kingdom?”

Perching his chin on her belly, he pouted up at her. “But Rosie–” She lifted a brow in a well practiced looked of shrewdness. Alistair sighed, “alright.”

“The sooner you’re done the sooner you can come to bed and we can finish short listing names.” He grinned at the prospect at that. Finding a suitable name for the soon-to-be Prince or Princess was more interesting and more important than any of this other work.

He grinned against Roselyn’s tight stomach. “Just don’t fall asleep this time.”

“No promises.”

Chuckling through his nose, Alistair kissed her belly again. A sudden, sharp kick from within smacked him in the mouth, sending him reeling a few inches in surprise and the air shooting out of his mouth in a trumpeting sound.


Roselyn collapsed into a fit of giggles, smothering her mouth with her hands while her cheeks bloomed with colour. Alistair grinned, supporting himself on the arm of his chair. Pressing his lips to her belly, his kissed and made  the same sound with his lips.

Leaning back, tears began to stream from Roselyn’s eyes, her whole body shaking under the weight of her laughing. He loved the sound of it. While they had been apart, it had been one of the things he had missed the most. Her laughter, that she would laugh at his stupid jokes and his fumbling, out of genuine fondness and mirth. Not because she felt she had too.

“Listen,” Alistair cleared his throat and spoke to the baby. “I’ll have you know, striking your King is treason.” He smoothed his hand over his jaw. Roselyn sighed as a few chuckles continued to escape her and she wiped her eyes. “And look at that, you’ve made your mother cry.”

Smiling with pure love, Roselyn inclined towards him as close as her belly would allow. Alistair met her the rest of the way, placing an affectionate kiss on her lips. He curled her loose hair around her ear, smiling.

“What a dignified sound you made,” Roselyn giggled, “Your Majesty. I think our child has a sense of humour like yours.”

“Oh good,” sighed Alistair rubbing her belly with his hands, “I can start blaming my poor jokes on them.”

Apologies for typos. Running a bit short of time so I will check this when I am not running around like a headless chicken. <3

Can you make a master post of housing set ups? I want to steal ideas

Sound’s great! I also love to snatch up ideas. Creating a cage for your piggies is lots of fun! I did some snooping around primarily on guineapigcages; but I have some really cool ideas I pulled from other sites. I’ve got some images and links; I don’t know if it qualifies as a master post but I hope this will help you get some ideas. 


Cage Tour Videos


Toy Ideas

I also saw a ton of awesome examples on Pintrest! I don’t have an account but from what I could see it looks full of ideas. While this is pretty small to be considered a “master post” I do hope you can find some inspiration from some of these cages. Wish the best for you and your piggies!
