mind is so blown i have no idea

**Sorry anon;;;; I think you meant to send this to the other blog;;;; **

Oh man! Where do I begin;;;;; How? I have no idea, anon. I’m just as curious as you are;;; First off, I’m still not over how amazing Ore is??? like WOAH I’m just mind blown at how natural we are with each other from the very beginning. I admit I did have a crush way back then (lol gemsona week consisted of me trying to be cool and not make it so obvious pfff) I get really embarrassed talking about it- Not in a bad way of course! 

…and I don’t want to give the impression that everything is absolutely perfect like some fairytale, but man;;;  there is some magical universe stuff going on I swear. I guess you can say I got lucky???;;;;; But I think it happens to everyone. If you just be patient with it and just relax and let this flow naturally you’ll be surprised because all of a sudden there’s this delicate laid out for you to walk down and enjoy the scenery.

The first moments spent with him in person and just chatting with each other- or something silly like interacting with posts about our self inserts PFF it felt so pure and genuine. It’s refreshing and it wonderful. I’m sorry;;; I’m awful at speaking esp. trying to describe feelings haha…. 

LUCID DREAMING: HOW TO

SO LUCID DREAMING!!  

Some people asked because of my TONGUE IN CHEEK POST about it the other night, well!!! all it is, is being consciously aware that you’re dreaming. You can kinda train your brain to do it and it’s fukken awesome ok!  I learned from a bunch of books I got out from the library one summer back in high school and I have kept up all the habits since then until shit got weird but we don’t talk about that

sometimes you get to a point where you can control your dream and force yourself to dream about a certain thing . either way it’s really damn neat to just have conscious awareness while you’re asleep and if nothing else, it’s something fun to do that doesn’t cost anything.

I got into it a few years before Inception came out, if you can believe it. So when that movie came out talking about the same ideas my mind was  blown 

First things first:

1) DREAM RECALL:

This is your ability to actually remember your dreams. Because imagine, even if you end up having a lucid dream,  what’s the point if you completely forget it as soon as you’re awake? Some people think they don’t dream anymore but it isn’t true, everyone dreams. Some people just don’t remember.

So Write down  all your dreams, anything that you can remember as soon as you wake up.

I just text it to myself first thing in the morning and usually they’re super disjointed and barely readable but it’s just enough to have me remember them again. even if you can only remember little snippets, the more you do this the better you can get at remembering.

2) DREAM CUES

Dream cues are these little things that make you realize you’re asleep because they differ between reality and your dreams. They’re kind of like triggers that will make you realize you’re dreaming. The idea is to check in on these cues even when you’re awake, so that when it becomes a habit in real life, it will become a habit when you’re asleep.

It’s also a good way to check if you’re actually awake because sometimes dreams are super realistic. I’ve had a lot of dreams where I woke up in my bed, then did the reality check only to figure out I was dreaming.

Different people have different ones but there’s some common ones:

-mirrors: In real life you look like yourself. in a dream you’ll look like a really distorted version of yourself or like a completely different person. I don’t recommend this one because what you see in the mirror might freak you out into just waking up lol

-counting your fingers and seeing more or less than the amount of fingers you have

-electronics that don’t work

-text that changes when you read it, look away and then read it again

-dim lights [i hate light dimmers for this reason eugh]

-loose teeth

My personal ones are the and fingers and the changing text! So in real life, I count my fingers, and read some text, look away and read it again to see if it changes.

If I have more than 5 fingers, I realize I’m asleep and that’s where the lucid part starts.

Personally for me, all of these have served as dream cues, but these two are the ones that i literally check on. Another big one for me is if my teeth are loose, it’s an automatic cue for knowing I’m asleep.

INDUCING A LUCID DREAM

So you made a habit out of checking in on your dream cues and writing down your dreams. Now how do you actually do this thing….

There are some REALLY SPECIFIC METHODS To inducing a lucid dream . Some people practice one method that brings you from wakefulness directly into a dream, with NO LOSS OF CONSCIOUSNESS. I find this a little rarer but it’s definitely happened to me

Others have the method where you fall asleep as usual, end up in a dream, and then your consciousness wakes up while you’re in the dream. This is more common I think.

my sleep science might be off but this is it as I’ve understood it.

so the general method is to go to bed super early. like 9pm. And set your alarm for Stupid O Clock. I am talking some ungodly hour that you will never be up, like 4:30.

Reason being: You will literally never go to sleep and immedeitly start dreaming. You have to have been asleep for a few hours, having gotten a few sleep cycles in. The longer you sleep, the deeper your sleep cycles run and the more restful sleep you’ll have as the night goes on. It’s only in the later sleep cycles that you start to dream.

This is the reason you’re groggy in the morning [you were just in the middle of your deepest sleep cycle] but not groggy at all if you wake up at like 12

So the goal is to wake up right before you’re gonna go into a deep sleep cycle.

Stay awake for a few minutes, go to the bathroom or something, read some stuff on lucid dreaming on your phone… You want to wake up your brain so that your mind is conscious and running even though you’re dead tired.

Now you can go back to sleep, and the conditions are pretty much met for having a lucid dream.

SO GENERALLY NOW, it’s really likely that you’re gonna have a regular dream.

But if you’ve been making a habit out of doing your dream cues/reality checks while you’re awake, at some point you’re gonna do it while you’re asleep.

stuff from the waking world carries over into dreamtown. it’s the same reason you’ll have super realistic dreams about your job or people you know.

IT’S ACTUALLY SUPER COOL When you do your dream-cues and you see different results from real life. Like I’ll count my fingers and realize there’s 6 of them and be like Ohhh shit! I’m asleep! Time to go wild.

Usually I just fly around like a motherfucker but it’s so cool to be your exact same self who is able to think about your family/friends/homework/life/memes except you’re flying

CONTROLLING THE DREAM

OK SO NOW THAT YOU’RE AWAKE while dreaming, you can  try controlling your dream. This is a bit harder to explain but in my opinion it’s as easy as focusing/dwelling on what you want to do..kind of like repeating a mantra mentally.

Like lets say you’re dreaming and you come across a house. As you’re walking towards it, tell yourself “Captain Kirk is in this house and we’re gonna have the time of our damn life.” TELL YOURSELF WITH CONVICTION! BELIEVE IT! CAPTAIN KIRK IS IN THE HOUSE! OVER AND OVER!

also try practising controlling on little things first. Like point to the sky and say “brighter” or “more purple” or “bluer” or think “I want it to be night time instead" and it SHOULD change.

STAYING IN THE DREAM

There’s 2 tricks I know of that will keep you in a dream for longer when you feel like you’re about to wake up and you don’t want to.

One is spinning: If you feel yourself waking up, try spinning around on the spot till you’re dizzy. Things will blur around you and then they will clear up and get super sharp! Especially spinning while crouching. I have no idea why this works, but it does and others have said the same thing.

The other is, when you feel like things are getting blurry, focus on ONE spot in the dream. I usually crouch and like, stare at the details and texture of the road really really close up. For some reason, pinpointing your focus on one little thing will refocus the dream.

finally,

READ UP!!

Honestly the more you read about lucid dreaming, the more likely you are to have one for yourself..Even by reading this you’re more likely to have one. It’s weird, but it works. When I would regularly read books on the topic they’d say the same thing and it was true. It’s kind of like, the fact that you’re aware that it can happen makes it likely to happen..

SO YEAH, before you go to sleep or when you wake up at 4 in the morning, google it, see what others have to say. Get your brain in gear for it. there’s lots of posts online that will probably talk about the same stuff that I have here but this is my legit personal experience with it and stuff over the years.

IN SHORT

  • DO YOUR DREAM CUES/REALITY CHECKS
  • WRITE DOWN YOUR DREAMS
  • SET YOUR ALARM FOR A REALLY DUMB TIME!!
  • HAPPY DREAMING
Never Say Never (Part 12)

Pairing: Arthur (Mr.) Ketch x Reader
Word Count: 750
Warnings: Smut. Unprotected sex.
Sequel: Part 12/12 of  Never Say Never

Special thanks to @lucis-unicorn for helping so much with this every step of the way.

I have to get sappy and say thank you to everyone who has read, liked, commented, reblogged, and sent asks and messages about this story.

When I wrote the first chapter as a smutty little one shot it was to indulge my fantasy and to try and sway a friend to climb in my lonely trashcan with me (it worked by the way).   It turned into a chapter story for fun.

I had no idea a chapter story about a minor character that was created to be disliked (as of right now) would do so well but the feedback has blown my mind.

People have sent me songs that remind them of this story.  People have told me I’ve inspired them to try writing.  I’ve even had several people say that this story changed their opinion on the character in the show.

I am so thankful and I don’t feel like I can properly express just how much this has meant to me. Nothing I have ever written has had this much love and feedback.

I may come back with a sequel at some point and in the mean time feel free to send in some one shot requests.

And now on to the last chapter….

Keep reading

Okay, so I’m kinda blown away by the notes on my soulmark au post, and the replies and tags people have added to it are so incredibly sweet. So first off, thank you so much to everyone who likes my silly au idea! 

And second: here’s more!

I’ve talked a lot about specific people, but I want to get more into the lore of how a world with soulmarks would work. I’m probably going to end up changing my mind on some of this stuff later as I go back and rewatch episodes, but for now, here are the ideas I’m the most solid on. 

  • The Ashari people see the marks as blessings, something to be treasured and embraced. They don’t worry too much about whether the people who bear their words are meant to be romantic or platonic soulmates as they assume that will become clear when they meet the person who speaks them. And in either case, they’re (almost) always thrilled to have their soulmates as a part of their life. 
  • For goliaths, the handprints are marks of honor, although it’s sometimes a little more difficult to find the person they belong to. Usually, it’s hard to be sure until the hand meets the place it’s imprinted on someone else, although that part seems to sort itself out. Many goliaths find that their hand naturally falls to land on the print that matches. 
  • In general, soulmark words are seen as a good thing. There are some people who hate the idea because they don’t really like being told who they ought to end up with and they go out of their way to try to avoid meeting the people who might say the words on their skin.
  • Generally, people are born with all the words they’ll ever have. There are rare cases of people discovering a new soulmark. This tends to happen when something very drastic and unexpected happens that alters the course of someone’s life. (This happens most often with the words of a god suddenly appearing on someone’s skin.)
  • The number of soulmarks varies pretty wildly, although most people have at least two. 
  • Platonic soulmarks are more common, though most aren’t aware of this as romantic soulmarks get more attention and focus. 
  • People with magical powers, or those that are more in tune with magic or nature often feel a slight tingle where the words are on their skin just before they hear them spoken, though this doesn’t always happen. 
  • If someone kills one of their soulmates, the words often burn or sting as they fade to gray. 
  • It’s fairly common for clerics and paladins to have words from their deity, although this often takes people by surprise as it’s not well known outside of Vasselheim. 
  • Words from a dragonborn (or a dragon) tend to feel slightly warmer or cooler to the touch depending on the elemental affinity of the dragonborn. 
  • Soulmarks can be unrequited (meaning one person has words from someone, but the other person does not). It’s very rare and usually quite unpleasant for both parties.  
  • There are procedures that can remove someone’s words that require a very advanced magical ritual. Generally, it’s very heavily frowned upon to have the words removed unless they have turned gray, in which case people are more understanding. 
  • When someone dies, their words turn gray on all their soulmates’ skin, as if the color has drained away from them completely. The effect is not always instantaneous. If the soulmates are far apart (either physically or emotionally) it can take some time for the color to drain away.

This is getting kinda long, but this is most of what I’ve got thought out for right now. I’ll definitely keep making posts about this as long as people want to read them though! I’m also happy to answer any questions about this (that’ll probably help me think of explanations and lore that hasn’t occurred to me yet)

Wow.

Just wow. Jack, Robin. You guys have blown my mind. What an incredible journey from start to finish. You guys are seriously mad geniuses. I’ve love love loved being able to watch all the videos associated with Anti. I loved that I had to make sure I kept my eye out for any clues or tricks so I didn’t miss them. I really feel like I just watched professionals put together a short horror skit from start to huge amazing finish. I am so incredibly thankful for the two of you. Always working your hardest day in and day out and also taking an idea from the community and literally running away with it. I just can’t say enough good things about all of your hard work. Thank you guys for everything. You’ve made this crazy Halloween obsessed chick incredibly happy all month long! Xoxo

interstellarperformance replied to your post “Get To Know Me”

Oh, I so wish I knew what fandom was and how to get into it, back in the day! I felt so alone sitting all by myself, writing TNG fanfic with actual pen on actual paper!

Right? I had no idea such things existed or what shipping was, I just knew that Worf HAD to get together with Deanna, they had to! And fanfic? That would have blown my mind!

ok but deadass like ???? you people freak the fuck out at the idea of calling bi/pan ppl “practically straight” when they’re in a “straight” relationship (which is awful i agree) but have no problem calling two married gay people practically straight for?? getting married and having a kid??? i don’t have time for this mess

30 / 100 /// it’s been a month since i did this studyblr, and my mind is blown by how welcoming everyone is in this community. i’m a total introvert, so i’m clueless as to how to reach out, but feel free to ask questions or give me post ideas, because i’d love to do more with this studyblr. 

and how am i doing today? i have a pretty tight to-do list. i wish it was just break already, because i don’t want to do anything.

anonymous asked:

Dude I would literally chop off a finger to be able to hear stairway to heaven for the first time again

Don’t do that! 

Here’s what to do instead.. Check out this performance of “Stairway to Heaven from April 1, 1971, 7 months before the release of Led Zeppelin IV in November. It was officially released on Zeppelin’s The BBC Sessions in 1997, which I HIGHLY recommend for fans of early Zep.

Zeppelin had only played “Stairway to Heaven” a dozen or so times in public by that point (starting March 5, 1971 in Belfast), and you can hear the crowd’s response for yourself. Very polite. Like they were at a tennis match or something. I think they had no idea what they were hearing.

And indeed, Jimmy has observed that audiences didn’t really start going wild for “Stairway” until the 1973 tours.

Ready to have your mind truly blown? That public debut of “Stairway” in Belfast? Somebody recorded it! 

The quality is very bootleg-y, even by 1971 standards, but duuuuude. This is HISTORY. I can’t believe how lucky we are that somebody recorded this. Audio-only, but the clip contains some nice photos from that show.

 For what it’s worth, Zeppelin nailed the performance. You’ll definitely be able to hear it, even across the mists of time.

The Irish were a little less reserved in their response than the English were (OF COURSE), but there’s still a gap between the end of the song and when the still rather polite applause started. It’s kind of eerie. 

But if I can save one of your fingers, Dear Anon, by all means: take a listen to the first time Led Zeppelin played “Stairway to Heaven” in public: March 5, 1971, in Belfast.

We Hit 400

I LOVE ALL OF YOU

I just wanted to let you know that looking through your page has made me feel so much better since I am currently going through a breakup from my on/off boyfriend of three years since this past Tuesday. I have been mind blown by the true accuracy of our descriptions (he’s an Aquarius and I’m a Scorpio) and now I better understand the reason for our breakup and can fully accept it.
My boyfriend and I met in middle school and were basically together for all of high school, on and off for months at a time. We knew everything about each other, but we had horrible communication skills with each other. Honestly, the idea that we broke up does not bother me. We really needed it, since nothing about us seemed compatible anymore. What has bothered me and what I have had to get over with is the fact that he said he doesn’t want to talk to me anymore, that he said we have nothing in common and that there is nothing to talk about anymore. It’s the realization that hit me hard. It sucks because I still care about him, but he is right, since talking would only make us try to be together again. Which we already found out is not going to work.
So you’re probably wondering why I’m telling you this… Well, since we always had horrible communication, I always wondered what exactly it was about us that made something as simple as talking to each other so hard for us. Since I’m a Scorpio, I always love a challenge. I love being sneaky with my thoughts and the way people see me, and I would hide messages in my words. I also saw that Scorpios like more possessive lovers, and he did not often do that, although he could tell that I always listened when he told me what to do. He just wasn’t the kind to do so. And I would bother him about it. I knew I had flaws in my attitude, and I wanted him to tell me I had them so that I should want to change, because I knew I would listen to him if he did so. Like my horrible manner when I get cranky or angry. But instead, he would say that he could not change me (even though I always said I just wanted help), and I instead would find flaws in him to point out. I kept pushing it more onto him, and just appeared to be angry at him all the time. Of course, overall we were more happy than upset, but I never truly showed when I was happy because I figured that the implied happy messages in my words were understandable enough. I realized too late that I had to be direct with my feelings and stop putting them in messages (I just have a lot of trouble with being direct). Instead, he did not catch any of the happy things, he wasn’t able to read any of my messages, and he only saw the angry side of me. Eventually, I appeared to be over emotional to him, which is why he wanted to end it. And his lack of taking charge made him appear to not have enough emotion or not care as much as me, which made it difficult for me to be with him.
We were just never really compatible, since we never understood each other fully. I want to thank you again for this page, for helping me understand WHY we didn’t work out. Hopefully he and I can recover from everything fully and laugh over how accurate this page is sometime later in the future :)
