Guys, I don’t know if you’ve heard about this wonderful app by Deutsche Welle. It features a series of lessons complete with vocabulary, grammar and listening (there’s also speaking exercises, but those are not as good as the rest). You can get a placement test in case you already know German but don’t know where to start.

My favorite part about all of this is definitely “Nico’s Weg”. That’s like a mini series which features Nico, a guy who doesn’t know much German. As you progress through the courses so does he within the videos. You get to do exercises about the story too.

It’s available on their website or you can get the Android or iOS app. (Sorry, I can’t add the links right now) Oh! And it’s available in Arabic too if that’s your native language or you already know it.

…There’s this Emperor who asks this shepherd’s boy, “How many seconds in eternity?" 

And the shepherd’s boy says, "There’s this mountain of pure diamond, and it takes an hour to climb it, and an hour to go around it.  Every hundred years a little bird comes and sharpens its beak on the diamond mountain, and when the entire mountain is chiseled away, the first second of eternity will have passed.”

You must think that’s a hell of a long time.  Personally, I think that’s a hell of a bird.

anonymous asked:

Hey from your post recent prompt list, could you do an angsty piece of tenxrose with 12 and 31? Hope you have a nice day!

12. believe
31. blame me

Oh, Nonny, why must they suffer so???? ;) Thanks so much for the prompt. It was fun getting my angsty fic on again after focusing on fluff for quite a while. 

Assume this is after a canon divergent reunion of sorts. 


To Trust

Rose shakes with fury as she readies herself for another monumental row with the Doctor over the same fucking issue as always. “I thought I could believe you when you said you’d never send me away again. But obviously I was wrong.” A tear leaks out of the corner of one eye, and she wipes it away with an angry swipe.

“God, Doctor. I jumped across dimensions for you. I saw things,” she swallows, trying to keep those memories hidden, “you wouldn’t believe. Universes so fucked up it’s a miracle I was able to jump back to Torchwood in one piece. I can take care of myself, but you insist on protecting me like I’m a porcelain figure that’ll break the second I’m dropped.”

The Doctor glares back at her, his eyes dark with barely contained rage, and his hands are clenched into fists at his sides. “Can you blame me for wanting to keep you safe?”

rating all of the doctors outfits based on how gay they are

first doctor:

i can tell this was once something gayer. it gives off the vibe of a brideshead revisited cover if u aged everyone up 70 yrs. the plaid pants mean something, the coat but its just not…cohesive. 5/10

second doctor:

see, this is very much like ones, but the bow tie adds the nutty professor vibe. it very much gives off the vibe of someone who is the town eccentric who has a very straightlaced husband. the haircut might be a dealbreaker but its the same shape of one belonging to a lesbian living in 1982. 7/10 for the solidarity working here in this outfit

third doctor:

this is a gay person. this is sincerely just the gayest of people. the ruffle shirt, the coat? whatevers on his shoulders?? the STANCE?? yes, pose is everything here too. and god does it bring this full circle. 10/10

fourth doctor:

now see i love four as much as anyone but this distinctly reminds me of a straight guy i knew freshman year of college who dressed almost exactly like this, with no knowledge of the show itself, and i cant disconnect these two people now. sorry, dude. 2/10 bc of the rainbow scarf, thank you for showing your support

fifth doctor:

this is the haircut ive only seen on gay women, and the squat + that jacket is making me dysphoric. good job five only gay outfits can make me hate my body like this. 9/10

sixth doctor:

this irritates me, but only a gay person would go to this level of carefully coordinated outfit disasterhood and i have to respect it. 8/10

seventh doctor:

the stance, the vest, the umbrella, the scarf…..this outfit would be up there if it werent for the hat. it reminds of every straight guy i know from comic book clubs. you were so close but like icarus you flew too close to the sun. 6/10

eighth doctor (move): 

this is gay in the fact its super victorian and the repression is just coming off in waves, an inherently gay act i know well from my childhood. the long hair rly solidifies the cohesiveness and vibe this look creates, but it doesnt hold the iconicness it needs to get rly up there. 5/10

eighth doctor (short):

NOW THIS IS THE ICONICNESS I NEEDED! the outfits basically the same vibe wise but the loosening of everything? the blood? the haircut. this is the look of not just an icon, but a bicon. 9/10

war doctor: 

aaaand here’s the same outfit again, but its……i dont know. i cant get into it. maybe its the weird fauxhawk. ill give props to the scarf, and whatevers going w the calf area. 4/10

ninth doctor:

leather jackets inherently give off the gay vibe, and that’s my second choice in hair if i didn’t have the worlds lumpiest head. the v neck deters me slightly but i feel it could go either way. 8/10

tenth doctor: 

i know so many butch lesbians that dress like this, and i love it. everything just works so well here. the suit, the hair, the sneakers, the coat….every piece is so unneccessary and just adds to the look of it all. 10/10

eleventh doctor: 

this outfit is accompanied w the inherent vibe and premonitions of the twirling and hand gestures, and that should make this super gay. anybody who decides to look like a schoolboy from 1958 is gay. and i want it to be, but again straight guys have adopted this and made the connection in my head to the point where it detracts a little. so, 7/10

twelfth doctor: 

twelve has like six different outfits but this one is my favorite, and i wanted to add bill in here because i love here and want to rate her outfit. like, honestly the bomber jacket? the patches?? the hair bow?? i love her so much. 10/10 always.

anyways, twelves outfit. this is peak emo. the shirt, the hoodie, the velvet jacket…..its hot topic chic, but in a good way. he looks like your cool gay uncle whose not rly ur uncle but teaches you how to skateboard. i want this exact outfit. i want both of their outfits, right now. 10/10 for the both of them honestly

thirteenth doctor:

do i even need to say it. id say harold and leave it at that but i want to talk about this so bad. the boots n socks. the suspenders. the haircut, and let us just look at that rainbow shirt. this is the outfit i see all the popular tumblr lesbians wearing. this is what a gay person wears, and i have never felt so called out for my fashion choices until i saw this and knew i could probably recreate it with whats in my closet right now. 500/10. gay rights personified. i love women


You wait a moment, D o c t o r. Let’s get it right. I’ve got a few things to say to you. Basic stuff, first. Never be cruel, never be cowardly. And never ever eat pears! Remember, hate is always foolish, and love is always wise. Always try to be n i c e and never fail to be k i n d. Oh, and, you mustn’t tell anyone your name. No one will understand it anyway, except… except the children. Children can hear it sometimes, if their hearts are in the right place and the stars are, too. Children can hear your name. But nobody else… nobody else, e v e r.
