negative gain

okay bitch

yixing does not do shit like this

and this

to be disrespected like this

saying things like this is rude and honestly is not an opinion needed when new fans could gain a negative view on him because of this.

stay off the internet if the only reason you’re there is to hate on people who work a shit ton harder than you do.

  • doctor: why don't you exercise more often?
  • me, internally: if i exercise wearing a binder, it will constrict my lungs and make it nearly impossible for me to breathe during physical activity. if I'm exercising outside and it's hot, the extra layers I have to put on to conceal the binder could cause me to have a heat stroke and pass out. however, if I don't wear a binder, it becomes almost impossible for me to use the local gym. the combination of facial hair and visible breasts puts me at risk of violence or sexual assault no matter which locker room I use. plus, if I don't bind while I exercise, I won't pass. getting misgendered depresses me and triggers a very intense dysphoria that has led me to contemplate suicide in the past.
  • me: lol i dunno, just lazy i guess :)

DAY TWO!!?? highschool!!!

headcanon: in high school tord would write love letters to Edd pretending to be a “secret admirer”, just to make him feel better about himself since he knew that Edd’s self esteem wasn’t that high. Tord writes paragraphs full of cute compliments and how nice and good he is, and later asks what he thinks about it, and the answer would never be something negative. Best way to gain courage.

(I’m rly excited abt this even if school is…. draining me… both physically and mentally)

anonymous asked:

the original post was out of order but please dont pull that "gay is used as a slur too sometimes" line because gay is often used in a derogatory way but it isnt a slur, it doesnt have the history and weight in it that queer does because it wasnt created by homophobes purely for abusive purposes the way queer was. we can reclaim it individually and be proud of it as a term but we're always going to have to be careful with it and sensitive about other peoples feelings on the matter bc its a slur

Starting from the 1890′s, gay was used as a slur for gay people, especially when they were doing sex-work. It has, contrary to the only popular meaning of “happy” (which it meant around the 12th century), the much less nice meanings “light, easy, lewd, wanton” and has a very promiscuous meaning. This meaning can be traced back to the 16th century, but it wasn’t used only for gay people at the time. In the 17th century it meant like “Of loose and immoral life” which leads us to the meaning associated with homosexuality that we know today. So they didn’t start using gay because it came from happy, they started using it for gay people because they felt gayness was immoral.

(I also read somewhere that the popular use of gay for gay people came from the term “gay cat” as in someone who works on the road and was usually looking for a quick lay, but I’m not sure how true this is - 1920′s America this is I think)

Started to be reclaimed by the gay community around 1920 (alongside queer!), but stayed used as a slur (and to describe it as an illness) definitely until around 1940. And I think around 1950/1955(?) that it’s considered reclaimed. 

Queer was the most common term used by gay men before WWI, and only gained its negative association afterwards.

ALSO when most of the “gay” reclaiming was happening in America, Europe didn’t feel comfortable with the word which has such a negative association, and thus in many countries people are using “queer” because of the eccentric nuance - one of my teachers said that the lgbt community has always had a really good sense of humour

It’s easy to forget that language evolves differently for different people, and though I’m in no way rejecting that queer was definitely used as a slur, gay has a very similar history hmmm

About Kim Heechul Being Called A Pedo

*sigh* I always try to stay out of the online kpop community because 90% of the time everyone is either severely misinformed and being led on by haters or just being petty af and not thinking logically, but I couldn’t just stay silent on this.

TO START the comment about “Healthy Porn” was made by a Produce 101 PD, NOT an Idol School PD. 

Second, I’m incredibly disappointed in the so called ELF who’s opinions have been changed without doing any research or really even knowing anything about Heechul apparently. Don’t be so easy to name call and drop someone based off what you hear about them. Form your own opinions through observation of YOUR OWN. 

To everyone else letting themselves be led by antis and haters, THINK LOGICALLY. Let’s begin on the surface. Heechul is the ONLY male idol with so many female friends of all ages. If he was being a creep he wouldn’t have such a positive reputation amongst friends and peers. Heechul is the ONLY male idol that openly speaks up for female idols and defends them and tries to bring light to their struggles and how much more difficult it is for them than it is for the male idols.

Third, THERE IS NOTHING WRONG WITH LIKING ANIME AND JAPANESE THINGS. Like what the actual hell? Japanese anime has some of the best storytelling in their animes out there. Admittedly, they do gain a negative view from the outside because the Japanese in general have a pervy and wacky sense of humor, but unless you’ve delved into the culture stfu. You’re judging a book by it’s cover and being a prejudice asshole. All the figurines and merch that Heechul has displayed don’t even come from pervy animes so I don’t get why people are being so fucking obnoxiously judgy. They talk about the Asuka body pillow he has like it’s the dirtiest thing out there. That was a gift from a fan cause they knew he liked Asuka. Also A LOT of people give those as a joke. I was gifted a Full Metal Alchemist one from a friend. THERE IS NOTHING WRONG WITH IT EVEN IF IT WASN’T A JOKE OR GIFT. It is a CARTOON and if you think that NONE of your precious boy idols watch porn you’re incredibly naive. Sex and sexuality are completely normal! GROW UP.

Fourth, the whole he had Sohee as his background and thought she was attractive when she was so young. Are you kidding me? How many of you have members of Seventeen, NCT(any of the three groups), Astro etc who are younger than you as your background? Or have found them attractive? Or cute? Also even if you don’t, you’d have to charge the whole of China, South Korea, and Japan’s male population with pedophilia! Who do you think make up the majority of girl group’s fanbase? MEN. Men who are older than them and find them either cute or attractive. You know what? Forget Asia! Kesha, Miley Cyrus, Demi Lovato, Rihanna, Taylor Swift etc do you think they sell millions of copies and sell out stadiums and make their billions of dollars cause only females and males of the same age or younger purchase their merch/music? Do you think men older than them don’t find them attractive? THERE IS NOTHING WRONG WITH FINDING SOMEONE YOUNGER THAN YOU ATTRACTIVE. Pedophilia is defined as having sexual feeling towards children. Finding someone attractive doesn’t mean you get a hard on when you see them or jack off to them. I find Charlize Theron INCREDIBLY attractive and she is ridiculously hot, but that doesn’t make me a lesbian nor does it mean that she turns me on. I think Mark is attractive and I do have pictures of him but I’d never touch him. He’s a kid!

Lastly, Heechul is the HOMEROOM teacher meaning is not consulted with in regards of what they have the students do. Nor anyone else that participates on the show. THe only people who know the full details are the producers, directors, and the agencies who ok’ed their trainees to be on the show. The rest of the cast is only told about the things in which they participate in. Everyone is overreacting and blaming Heechul for a scene from a preview that he probably wasn’t even on set for. Meaning his statement that he didn’t see anything sexual or bad about what he was told or what was filmed stands true.

Guys honestly, think logically and for yourself before you let yourself be swayed by the masses.

It wasn’t that you hated your body, no, in fact, you and the skin and bones you resided in had become rather well acquainted over the years. But you still had days when your body felt more of a cage than a form. You likened the feeling to seeing the light at the end of a tunnel but never quite making it. You knew you were beautiful, knew you could feel good about yourself, but it seemed so far away.

It was as though you had been cursed. It was a Saturday morning, the boys of BTS were coming over for an impromptu trip to the beach after a long promotional period. You hadn’t seem them in what felt like forever, and god, you were excited to see them. You had become friends with them after moving to Seoul, a chance meeting that had led to almost 4 years of friendship. You knew each other inside out, upside down, round and round. However, they had never seen you like this. Over the previous years of knowing them, you were doing well, dieting, exercising, taking care of your skin. You weren’t sure where you’d slipped up, it was sometime after they left, and you were lonely, sad, and you just wanted to stay in bed, so that you did. The pillows of chub against you cheeks that hadn’t been seen since high school was visible once again, and your thighs pushed together a little more. Sure, you didn’t look bad, but you felt it. Every ounce felt too heavy.

The sound of a doorbell distracted you from your self loathing, and you swung open your door, greeting seven boys who were glowing with obvious happiness. All of them were dressed in tshirts and shorts, a stark contrast to your jeans and hoodie. They stepped inside, offering greetings, moving to the couch. You nestled between Jeongguk and Yoongi, grinning at the two boys. Yoongi furrowed his eyebrows in return, making you look away. Did you have something on your face? You fingers palmed against you face, touching your chubby cheeks, making your head dip down. He had noticed. Your hands dropped to your lap, and you gazed back up, shaking your head and focusing on the conversation at hand. Namjoon was laughing with Hoseok, before turning to you. “We missed you, Y/N! Are you ready for the beach? It doesn’t look like you’ve changed,” Namjoon motioned towards your less than ideal attire. You pursed your lips, before smiling. “Ah, I think I might just stay out of the water today.” The boys paused in their separate conversations, eyebrows raising in sync, and you’d remind them later to stop doing that, because it could be really fucking creepy. Taehyung shuffled closer, propping himself on his elbow. “Y/N, what’s wrong? You love the beach,” you laughed, brushing off his comment with a ‘I feel a bit sick today.’ The boys obviously didn’t buy it, but acted otherwise, and for that you were grateful. “At least change, maybe your hoodie?” You nodded at Jimin’s words, slipping out between Yoongi and Jungkook, making your way to your bedroom. You slipped the hoodie off of your body, staring dimly at your reflection in the mirror. It was as though you weren’t connected to the person glaring back. A sudden crash of your door, and seven boys pilling inside pulled you away from the mirror, as you scurried to cover yourself. “What the fuck?” The boys were silent, staring open mouthed at you, as though you had just barged into their room while they were having a pity party. You felt gross, embarrassed, and it wasn’t because they had walked in on you changing. You’d established long ago that changing in front of each other was okay. But it was different, you liked yourself, no, loved yourself then. You didn’t like the body you were in control of right now, and you felt no one else would either. “It was Yoongi hyung’s idea I-“ Yoongi stopped Tae, moving forward, sitting on your bed.
“Y/N, angel, what’s wrong?” Pet names were a common occurrence, none of you had the time for a relationship, so affection was beneficial to you all. Hearing the words slip from Yoongi’s mouth made your heart clench as you faceplanted into the bed in a sobbing heap. “I- I-I p-ut on s-s-o much, weight, an-d I d-d-d-o-n-t like i-t, everyone noticed, how much w-w-weight I put on,” The boys shook their head, Yoongi leaning down and rubbing circles into your shoulders, coaxing you out of the tight ball. Jin opened his arms, enveloping you snuggly while the boys sat close. “Y/N, don’t cry, we didn’t think you looked bad, actually, you look gorgeous,” Jeongguk blushed at his words, kissing your forehead softly. Jimin nodded in agreeance, adding on. “Your cheeks are so cute!! The second little bunny in our family!!” You smiled warmly, the boys cooing at the subtle blush that dusted your face.

“You look so pretty, Y/N, you always do. You look all soft and cuddly.” Jin pulled you closer as he spoke, making you grin even more. Hobi was the next to speak, kissing the sides of your face. “Your cute lil’ smile!! I love it, I always will.” Namjoon grinned, flicking your forehead, the action though so childish, soaked in affection. “You’re hot, okay? I said it.” Namjoon seemed embarrassed by his statement, settling on the ground in front of you. Taehyung blew a kiss your way, pointing to Jimin’s cheeks. “Look at Jiminie hyung! His cheeks are soft like yours, and we love him so, so much! You, a little more but, ah well.” Jimin glared at Tae, muttering the word ‘brat’ under his breath. Yoongi moved closer, softly removing you from Jin’s arms. “You’re so perfect, to us all. Even on your worst days. I hate cheesy shit like this, so don’t tease me. Just, know I adore you.” The boys cuddled in further, suffocating you slightly, but the weight on your shoulders was lifted, and you realised you could rest assured that the world would not end if you missed a bit of cardio.

There is soooo much going on on Once. It’s hard for me to follow as an avid Once watcher, I don’t understand how Adam and Eddy said it was a “requel” where brand new viewers would be able to understand. It’s IMPOSSIBLE. If I can’t process everything, how the hell are new viewers supposed to be chill and into this story????

End-Bringer: Atropus, the World Born Dead

CR ∞

Lawful Evil Titanic Undead

Elder Evils, pg. 23~25

Malefic Properties: Anathematic Secrecy, Divine Scourge. Planetary on self, + 1,000 miles, focused on ground level from current orbit (wherever it’s “looking,” more or less).

Sinister Signs: Restless Dead. Atropus begins as a tiny black speck in the sky, a pinhole against the blue. Necromancers have the time of their life as this happens, as necromantic magic gains a +2 caster level bonus from nowhere. At the same time, any living creature that dies has a 20% chance of getting back up as a mindless zombie after 1d4 rounds. As Atropus draws closer and becomes a noticeable black disk, not only do corpses now have a 40% chance of rising, but the entire setting is treated as though it had been Desecrated, bolstering undead of all types and rendering them much harder to put down with divine magic. Consecrate is only a temporary measure, providing an area of relative safety, but as soon as the spell expires, the planetary Desecrate kicks back in.

Once telescopes can make out Atropus’ face, everything becomes so much worse. Fresh corpses have an 80% chance to rise in 1d4 rounds, and even corpses of the long-dead begin pulling themselves from the soil in numbers that blanket the world. The Desecrate becomes a full on Unhallow, making undead almost impossible to Turn and giving them a tremendous boost to their resilience, while simultaneously weakening Good-aligned folk regardless of their status as living or dead. Once Atropus arrives and begins its lethal orbit around the world, slain beings rise as zombies in a single round as old bones and mummified corpses all over the planet reanimate en masse.

small rant

I hate to bring negativity but I see way too much of this and I need to speak out. This is mainly to do on twitter but may even exist on tumblr. If you have twitter, you’ll most likely know what I’m about to talk about.

If you stan one group, stick to supporting that group. Do not focus your attention on trying to bring down other groups. From an army’s perspective, there’s so many pages trying to target BTS by tweeting horrible things by telling them to die. One particular twitter page called btsaresluts is set on telling everyone that BTS should get in a car accident and die. She says twice are better and BTS are pieces of shit. This is fucking immature and disgusting. Twice is no better than BTS. BTS is no better than Twice. They belong to different genres and have different styles. Just because you do not enjoy that one genre doesn’t give you the right to bash it. These idols have done nothing to deserve this hate and I’m not talking about just BTS and Twice but others as well. They are here to make music and live their dreams. They DO NOT need you to fucking discourage them or upset them by telling them to die. 

Support your favourites and fucking leave it at that. Don’t fucking try and diss others. ‘They shouldn’t have one. These people deserved it more.’ ‘They’re so ugly why are they even there?’ ‘Lol they can’t sing or dance lmao go die.’ These types of comments are reasons why idols don’t even check twitter anymore. These types of comments bring people to depression. THESE TYPES OF COMMENTS ARE WHY KPOP FANS ARE SEEN AS HORRIBLE. 

You do not gain anything from saying these types of things besides more negativity and useless attention. Why feel the need to gain this negative attention when you could actually get a life and focus your energy and supporting your group. Focus on getting them wins rather than complaining why they didn’t get one. Stop being fucking negative and unnecessarily petty over people that haven’t done anything to you and spend $0 on being a nice person.

I could go on but you get the idea. I’m done. That negativity you choose to focus on others will come back to bite you in the ass and don’t expect anyone to help. Peace out.

Reaction to a One Direction Member Falling for You. . .

@lianakeithkim I just discovered your blog and I love it!💕 Can you do a BTS reaction when a One Direction member (including Zayn Malik) fell in love with there gf? ( I swear I think of the most random things sometimes😂)


Reaction to a One Direction Member Falling for You…

A/N fair warning this is terrible – I know N O T H I N G about 1D,, ,,,,,, sooooo,, yeh



Namjoon…

Namjoon has a lot of respect for other artists, and so he would try his hardest not to let this get to him. Though even so, you’re his girl, and not matter who it is that has the hots for his girl, he’s going to feel threatened. Though using his logic Namjoon would be able to keep his cool most of time, telling himself things like “Malik is in another country, this isn’t as threatening as it would be if he were to be in Korea…” things along these lines. Though dont get me wrong, Namjoon is going to question what you think of said members music, style and lyrics. Then he’s going to compare himself to your answers, you’ll need to reassure Namjoon and boost up his confidence with better compliments than you gave to the One Direction member, and the complements are going to need to be more complex than the ones given to 1D.

Jin…

Totally cool about it. Might even seem somewhat oblivious about it, but that’s really just cause he doesn’t care all that much about Zane’s feelings towards you. What’s he going to do? Send a letter across the world to you? Jin isn’t threatened or worried about it, might even find it cute. Jin is low-key a savage. He’ll ask what you think, but mainly just out of curiosity, as he hasn’t really talked about your views on 1D before, and now he’s genuinely curious, but that’s it.

Yoongi…

Couldn’t give a flying cow. Malik who? Bitch, he’s busy writing lyrics and doesn’t have time to deal with a love struck softie who’s not even in the same country as him. Yoongi might casually ask you your thoughts on the matter if you bring it up with him, but if you don’t start the conversation Yoongi wont give it much thought – probably even forget its an “issue” in two days. If you’re not bothered, threatened or uncomfortable about it – Yoongi wont waste his time on it.

J-Hope…

Genuinely shocked…. About a lot of things concerning this issue. 1. That you caught the eyes of a celebrity in America.. J-Hope knows your stunning and a ray of golden sunshine himself, but he never thought anyone he would fall for would catch the attention of a huge artist in America. 2. That another guy would have the audacity to openly like another mans girl, 3. That its a member from 1D. J-Hope is just thrown for a loop and doesn’t even know where to begin to try and fix this. He might occasionally turn to you randomly and be like, “Did this really happen?” Just to be sure that he’s understanding correctly the situation. He has 100% trust in you and will even be flattered that another huge celebrity likes his girl. His only issue is actually grasping the situation, as he never imagined himself to be in such a situation.


Originally posted by omojinyounghobi



Jimin…

Similarly to J-Hope, Jimin is surprised that the both of you are having some sort of crossing paths with a celebrity in America. Jimin would want to talk to you seriously about it though. He wants to understand your feelings towards the celebrity before you tell others. Then going from there, if you don’t harbor any feelings and want to turn down the 1D member, Jimin wants to help you do it in a way that wouldn’t offend the 1D member. As Jimin is very respectful to others and wouldn’t want to cause drama that might in the end hurt you. All Jimin would really be worried about is you being in the media in a way that might gain you negative attention, and Jimin would want to do everything in his power to protect you from that.

Taehyung…

For some reason the first thing he’d do is congratulate you with a goofy smile. Like, it wouldn’t dawn on him that another man jas the hots for you. But then, like, three days later he would realize the situation and then get low-key jealous, but like, he wouldn’t even realize he’s jealous. But he would end up asking you things like, “Did that sound better than Malik?” Or “Hey, do you like my hair like this?” Trying to catch your attention even though he already has your attention and Malik doesn’t. It would be painfully obvious to you and everyone else that he’s jealous except himself. Eventually you would just say something like, “I can’t believe Malik likes me, but I have you, so that’s too bad for him.” To tell him tothat you’re not interested in anyone else but him because you’re getting sick of his jealous antics. And that would be all Taehyung needs to hear to reassure him and turn him back into the not jealous goofball he usually is.


Originally posted by jimiyoong



Jungkook…

His self-esteem plummets and his jealousy sky rockets. He’s in a bad mood for days, snappy at you and everyone else. He stays at practices late, barely eats, suddenly going to the gym 3 times a day rather than 2. Doesn’t want to talk about the problem though, so when you try to talk to him you’d need to be calm, reasonable and understanding. He’s young and still new to dating and in the end he’s really only scared of losing you.

PLEASE IGNORE THE MAJESTIC STATELY JIMIN AND FOCUS ON THE ANGRY JUNGKOOK IN THE BACKGROUND

[Trollhunters] Ithaca

Title: Ithaca
Summary: He doesn’t realize it’s Ithaca he’s looking for until he finds it. When he does, she has blue eyes and a different name.
Characters: Walter Strickler. Mentions of Barbara and Jim.

A/N: last week I watched all of Trollhunters instead of sleeping and now I wrote this instead of sleeping. I need some lessons in adulting because man, do I fail at it. 

***

Changelings never remember precisely what is done to them in order to change them in the first place. What they do remember every waking hour is what they’re told throughout the process.

You can never go back.

‘Back’ is a vague concept to beings that remember nothing prior to their turning. ‘Back’ is the nebulous reality of a family that, somewhere, woke up to an empty crib. Perhaps they mourned before picking up the pieces and moving on. Because they do move on, every single one of them. Sometimes the crib remains empty; sometimes a new offspring fills the void, guarded viciously by parents who’ll never allow it to meet the same fate as the previous.

They will never look for you. They never speak of you. They’ve all forgotten you.

They’ll have a dead child over an Impure one.

There are tales of a Changeling who went back, one who was taken young but not quite young enough. She remembered things from before, the tale went, and decided to look for her birth family. What she remembered was enough to find them - ignoring warnings, clawing her way back even as her brethren tried to hold her back. She had appeared before her bloodkin wounded but deliriously happy, reaching out for them with hands stained by the blood of her brothers and sisters.

They had recognized her as one of their own corrupted young, the tale went on. They had reached back for those outstretched arms.

And then they had torn her apart.

anonymous asked:

Why do you think LF doesn't deserve anything. He's not the worse person on the show

He’s certainly one of the worst on the show. There are about 5 characters who I will never understand why people defend them: Ramsay, Joffrey, Gregor (yes, people even defend the Mountain at times), Viserys and Littlefinger is on that list. This is why he deserves absolutely nothing (book and show moments):

  • Has been spreading lies about Catelyn for years, and not exactly nice lies either. Most people won’t believe it, but considering he ‘loves’ her, they aren’t the best lies. I suspect part of it was because he thought Ned may be an idiot who hears the lies, believes them and it causes problems between them.
  • Has Jon Arryn poisoned just to create chaos and a war between two great houses.
  • Now Lysa is no angel herself, but he uses Lysa, tricking her into believing he cares for her, to send a letter to Ned and Cat lying about who killed Jon Arryn. His plan was to create chaos, but it basically revolves around the crush he had on Cat as a child because he hopes in removing Ned, Cat will turn to him.
  • Lied about the dagger belonging to Tyrion in order to cause more chaos, knowing that if Ned and Cat suspect Tyrion had tried to murder their son, they aren’t just going to let it go. Also, he used the fact that he grew up as a brother to Cat to lull them both into a false sense of trust.
  • Betrayed Ned and then when Cersei and everyone else wanted Ned to go to the Wall, LF whispered things in Joffrey’s ear, convincing him to execute Ned no matter what. He wanted Ned out of the picture because he wanted Cat.
  • Forced Jeyne Poole into the brothels were she was sexually abused (likely at age 11, can’t remember if she’s Sansa’s age or older) but she was a child and she was forced to stay there by him.
  • Continues to stir trouble between the Starks and the Lannisters by lying to Catelyn about Arya being in Winterfell, knowing full well that her children are her biggest weakness, leading to her impulsively releasing Jaime (I know it’s different in the books), weakening the Starks position as he wanted.
  • Sansa, a girl who had no happiness for a while finally seems to be happy with the idea of marrying Loras/Willas, and he puts a ruins that for his own gain, thwarting the plan meaning a girl who’s trust he had gained remained unhappy.
  • Look, we all wanted Joffrey dead, but LF killed a child in a gruesome way just to cause more trouble in King’s Landing. And then framed Sansa and Tyrion for it with little remorse. He knew then Sansa had to get out of KL, and in providing her escape, it means he knows that she ‘owes’ him, further manipulating her. He then also killed Ser Dontos in cold blood.
  • Pushed Lysa out of the moon door, to help him gain control in the Vale, and frames Marillion, who is tortured and blinded until he confesses to the crime he didn’t commit.
  • Is manipulating Robin to gain power in the Vale and it wouldn’t surprise me if he killed Robin eventually.
  • I would say his treatment of Sansa borders on sexual abuse. Forced kissing and making Sansa uncomfortable is, in my opinion, the beginning of sexual abuse, and he manipulates her anyway. Sansa is a child and he is a grown man. He’s essentially a paedophile.
  • Uses Sansa’s negative experiences to gain her trust and in turns continues to manipulate her.
  • I’ve always seen LF’s making Sansa his daughter and forcing her to always refer to him as ‘father’ is his way of trying to eliminate her actual father from her life. He’s trying to make Sansa believe she is truly his daughter with Cat, which makes the kissing even more disturbing.
  • Hates an entire family, apart from a mother and daughter, just because he was rejected and didn’t care that his actions destroyed that entire family, even though he’s supposed to be in love with one of them. If you love someone, you are supposed to want them to be happy.
  • He is undoubtedly the most selfish person in the books/show because everything he does is solely for him and he doesn’t care who gets caught in the crossfire.
  • Spends his life manipulalting others for the benefit of himself. He’s manipulated Ned, Catelyn, Sansa, Lysa, Robin, I’d even say he’s manipulated Tywin, Cersei etc.
  • Sells Sansa to the Boltons, the family who murdered her mother and brother and took their home from the Starks. He either knows about Ramsay and doesn’t bother to tell her, or he doesn’t know and decides its a good idea not to look into the future husband of a girl he ‘cared about’. And we all know what happened at Winterfell.
  • Uses the fact that Sansa feels more entitled to Winterfell to try to drive a wedge between her and Jon. It doesn’t work, and when Jon is crowned King, he doubles his efforts with snide remarks. He is doing this in the hope that if the North abandon Jon and turn to Sansa, he will rule the North.
  • Sees that the possible relationship between Arya and Sansa could push him out and sets to work trying to destroy it. Uses Arya’s love for Jon and tries to manipulate her into thinking Sansa will betray Jon, believeing that if he continues, Arya will kill Sansa or she will fail, and Sansa will have her executed, leaving either the North for himself or Sansa with less allies.

I’m sure there are more, but these are the ones I think of. Considering the length of the list, I’d say he deserved to die and is one of the worst people on the show

HELP PREVENT ART THEFT AND ONLINE HARASSMENT NOW

It has come to my attention that many artists and creators are suffering greatly from art theft and online harassment, which, in my opinion, has totally gone out of hand. It’s wrong, and it’s hateful.

Places like Tumblr and YouTube are places for people online to share their work with others and make friends and partnerships with other people with varying degrees of interest. The sad truth is that these places more-or-less have people who steal others’ content or simply harass them into quitting or leaving. And at this point, it has more than crossed the line of patience: it has shattered that line completely.

One of my friends (@cozylittleartblog) has been affected by art theft continuously, and she has time and time again mentioned that people do not repost her stuff. Theft and harassment cannot be erased, but it can be minimized.

TO ALL OF TUMBLR AND OTHERS FROM OTHER SOCIAL MEDIA NETWORKS:

As creators, we cannot allow art theft or harassment continue to grow out of hand any longer. The main targets are fandoms that have gained negative light from these “attackers”, such as Bendy and the Ink Machine, and it’s creating more chaos.

Reposting is now considered theft because people repost it to gain popularity or attention, and that’s inexcusable; artists want their creations seen, but also become noticed as well. If getting noticed is a big deal, here’s some news: getting noticed can be much worse than not being noticed. The more spotlight you put on yourself, the more likely you are to get attacked, especially if art theft was involved.

Likewise, creators are being harassed by people for similar, if not different, reasons as art theft. These attackers want to get rid of something or try to throw themselves into the limelight, and harassment has caused more people to quit the scene.

Cringe collections filled with things that aren’t even cringe-worthy? Using others’ creations against them? It’s heartbreaking and frustrating, and I have had enough. As a budding creator, I’m tired of this drama.

The big message here? Creativity and artistic freedom is at stake because of art theft and online harassment.

Just picture this: most of the creators quit their thing, and what is left? An empty space with very little creativity. Creators should not bend to the whims of others, and attackers must realize the consequences of their actions.

I’m not calling for a rebellion or an attack on the attackers, or else we make ourselves the bad guy. What I want is for both creators AND former attackers/thieves work to prevent more theft and harassment, so that the problem becomes minimized.

The drama has gone out of hand, and it’s time we minimize that issue. Again, theft and harassment are human nature, but left unchecked can create disastrous results. Reblogs should be positive and encouraging, comments should provide constructive (not destructive) criticism, and our creative billboards that we call social media must be a welcoming community that invites anyone to post their work.

Attention and popularity should not be a reason why someone must do something, because that’s not why I started: I started because I wanted to express myself and share my content. It’s nice to get a positive comment, a reblog, or even a new follower, and they give me the motivation to continue; but all of that would not be possible if I wasn’t posting my creations simply because I wanted to.

For one last thing, we can be inspired by our creators, but we need to express ourselves, not someone else. Art theft and harassment make it harder to express ourselves, but I strongly believe things can change here.

So, please, show respect and kindness to our creators and their opinions, and in turn, they will respect you and your opinions. We approach things differently, for that is why we consider ourselves individuals, and we must learn to respect each other and show kindness.

Because kindness and respect spreads faster than we perceive.

Positive, And Negative Energy

Positive energy is energy that is harmonic with the rest of your being. Positive energy does not need to be light energy, or any other type of energy it just has to be energy that is harmonic with your very being.  This energy will have positive intentions with you, and your spiritual system, and will be seen to be very helpful, and beneficial to you. This energy can be used to heal, and restore balance to your spiritual system. Positive energy can be attracted to you, if you’re open to receiving it. Positive energy can be used by intentionally trying to send it to someone, or something else. This will usually result in you blessing them with your positive energy.

Things that can be gained from positive energy :

  • Feeling of being disharmonic with everything else around you
  • Peacefulness.
  • Feelings of being safe, and secure.
  • Feelings of love, and fulfillment.
  • Mindfulness.
  • Calmness.
  • Your energy, and chakras will be more open, balance, and flowing.
  • And much, much more.

Negative energy is energy that is disharmonic with the rest of your vibrational frequency. This energy does not have to be dark to be negative energy it just has to be disharmonic with you. With too much of this energy around you, or interacting with your being you can, become physically, mentally, and spiritually ill, or drained. This energy can be cleansed, or banished from your being in order for your being to flow better, and run more smoothly. Negative energy can be thrust upon you, even when you are not expecting it, but negative energy can be protected from using many different magical techniques, and practices. This is energy that contain some form of negative intention, and is usually harmful to most things that it comes in contact with. Just like positive energy you can also focus, and intended for negative energy to be sent to someone else or something. This will usually result in some form of curse placed upon that construct using negative energy. I have even heard of practitioners saving their negative energy in things such as needles, so that they can use them later when they have somebody to curse.

Things that can be gained from negative energy :

  • Feeling of being disharmonic with everything else around you
  • Feelings of being physically, mentally, and spiritually drained.
  • Feelings of being physically, mentally, and spiritually illness.
  • A streak of bad luck differing in intensity.
  • Spiritual blockages.
  • Mental blockages.
  • Increased amounts of fear, and paranoia.
  • Nausea.
  • Irritability.
  • And much, much more.
Hyomin’s full interview for High Cut May 2017 issue

Q. T-ara debuted in 2009 so now you’re going on your 9th year as a girl group. How does it feel putting behind all the times you spent together and preparing for your last album?

Honestly, we didn’t know the news would come out first. We were discussing T-ara’s future just amongst ourselves when suddenly we saw the articles so it somehow,,, felt like we can’t turn back now. “Ah it really turned out like this,” this is how we felt. But deep inside, we thought “since there’s still time left, we have to wait until then to really know.” When we saw the news articles, we shared lots of messages like “I feel strange” in our group chat.

Q,You must have talked a lot regarding the group’s future amongst the members.

We all know that nothing good comes from us splitting apart. The things we have achieved so far, it’s a waste…. anywho, we all cherish T-ara all the same.

Q.But why can’t you be together anymore?

We all want to stay together. But now we are all old, and it’s not like we can force each other to choose the same path. Each of us wants something different as well. However, regardless of which company we are in, I hope we can meet up between ourselves again later. We talked about this before, that’s what we are hoping for. To be honest, reality still hasn’t hit us yet.

Q.The fans and the public will probably feel sad about the timing (of your breakup). Because T-ara had so many ups and downs yet still kept promoting steadily and always achieved good results. Even recently, new evidences surfaced about the bullying scandal, in which T-ara used to be drawn as the ‘perpetrators’, and people started having a new perspective about it as well.

It’s very ambiguous. Lots of time has passed and we started feeling indifferent about it, we can’t even be sure if we had any bitterness deep inside regarding that scandal. We don’t feel relieved that “the truth was revealed,” not at all, we simply hated that it was brought to light again. Because there are lots of such perceptions about T-ara… because we always stay quite or try to be careful but then people start talking about us.

Q.Wouldn’t it be even more sad for the fans that you’re disbanding now after they have sticked together with you all through such crisis?

Our fans is the saddest part about this. Our fans had it tough too. For us, it’s something that we brought upon ourselves. Because we know well about our naive and immature actions…whenever we get criticised or go through difficult times, I believe it would have been difficult for our fans to confidently say “I’m a fan of T-ara.” We want to repay back our fans even if just by a little, we all feel the same about this….that’s partially why we carried on until now. Of course, we also carried on for the sake of our families and ourselves as well.

Q.We heard that you’re very close with your fans.

Yes, there are lots of fans whom we know their names and faces. Our fans are way more mature than we are. I don’t know how to feel about saying this but if I was a T-ara fan, I would’ve switched to another group long time ago. Rather than being thankful for certain words from our fans, we were just very thankful that they treated us as if nothing happened. That’s why… (Hyomin became speechless here).

Q.It must be very upsetting.

Yes. We feel very…. Since 5 years ago, we didn’t have any special goal. But even then, not a single member said that she doesn’t want to do this anymore, we just carried on altogether. We came this far just relying on each other (the members) so it’s a shame (to let go now). (Hyomin started tearing up). We talked about this a lot as well. I think it’s only right to keep going until the end. Because if we were to quit we would’ve quit sooner, and if we didn’t want to do this any one of us could’ve have quit earlier but not a single one of us did.

Q.During T-ara’s peak days, you had lots of schedules that you couldn’t sleep more than 2 hours a day. There were lots of different talks about T-ara, but no one can deny than you were a hard working team. Is there anything you want to praise yourself for when you look back on the past 9 years?

Um….the fact that I became able to just accept and adjust in any situation. In the past, whenever I am put in an unpleasing situation on or whenever something bad happens, I can’t accept it and just get sad by myself but now it’s different. Maybe because I got older as well (laughs).

Q.Have you ever thought that if you can fix just one thing about that situation, everything would’ve turned out better. Have you ever had such regrets about the issues in the past?

“I should’ve held it in,” this is what I thought. We all were so young. 

Q.In a past interview, you mentioned “I look up about myself a lot. I know even the rumours other people don’t know about myself.” Do you still do this?

It’s not that hard. I think I became indifferent. Rather than getting hurt over negative talks, I instead gain strength from the small supporting words or positive mentions in between the lines. The public and the netizens wouldn’t just criticise someone who has no fault. People’s criticism wouldn’t turn into praises all of the sudden, so it’s easier that I change, myself. That’s how I thought. It’s important to recognise the problem, that’s why I look it up. I think things changed way more positively through time. Although there were still much more negative situations than positive while promoting in T-ara

Q.Through the time you promoted in T-ara, what is the period time you felt the happiest to the point where you want to go back to it?

I want to go back to our debut days. The youngest days of our group promotions. (laughs).

Q.On 30th of July, 2009 you debuted through <Radio Star>, I watched it live and I still remember this vividly; Kim Gura’s dumbfounded face when he said “Why are you debuting like this?”

We were fresh out rookies back then so no one even knew our names or faces. All of the MCs were dumbfounded. They told us to introduce ourselves first, they were like “Who the hell are you?” (laughs). We even had a phone call with Kwangsoo CEO during the broadcast. 

Q.It was such a one-of-a-kind debut. You were probably even more nervous than on stage.

Of course. It’s a period of time in which one gets nervous over anything. We also were very embarrassed when we saw the script, we thought “who comes out on TV first then introduce themselves (for the first time).” We felt that we must introduce ourselves well so we even practiced doing talent shows for each other. We couldn’t just sing and dance only, so we divided roles between us just like in a school play; Boram unnie did cartwheels, I did musical, Jiyeon did board smashing, and so on. We wanted to show something new.

Q.Do you want to debut in the same way even if you go back in time?

If I had the choice, I do want to do that. It’s a very big opportunity for a rookie. Actually, we want to go on <Radio Star> one last time before disbanding. We did voice out our desire to do that but we can’t be sure if that will happen or not. 

Q.Let’s talk about your future. After your last album promotions, you have to slowly start preparing for your solo activities. 

There are no plans at all yet.

Q.You don’t have anything you want to do either?

There are lots of things I want to do but…I don’t think it’s the time to do what I want to do. I want to do something I can be good at or learn something new. I have lots of interests in videos and pictures so I want to try travelling alone. I have never travelled alone before. I have lots of fears, also my parents don’t allow it.

Q.Wouldn’t it feel lonely?

During a point of time I used to feel lonely when I’m not dating, but I think I feel way less like that now. I’m my parent’s only child but I still know how to play by myself. The time I spend alone feels lonely yet fun too. Just because I have someone by my side doesn’t mean it will fill up my loneliness or eliminate the hollowness in my heart.

Q.You’re already 29. It’s a point of time where women commonly start having lots of different thoughts.

I don’t think much about it. I was rather depressed last year because it’s the last of my 20s. But this year, it’s already April before I know it. Each new year, I always have something new I want to try but I don’t think I have anything in particular this year. I just enjoy doing what I want to do from time to time and also rest in between. I don’t think this is right…I will be jobless after T-ara disbands. (laughs). It’s a point of time where I have to start doing something but I just can’t think of anything. I think I’m being the most idle I’ve been my entire life. To think about it, I used to plan a lot when I was younger. 

Q.You worked so hard all that time so I don’t think it’s a bad thing to rest a little now. 

I think like that sometimes too. I believe it’s a good thing that my anxiety is gone. We used to have so much schedules but then suddenly none so we now know how to be grateful for having work to do. 

Q.What kind of group do you want T-ara to remain to your fans?

(Hyomin paused to think for quite a while). There are probably many people who think “T-ara are such persistent kids”, I’ve been grateful just for this alone. I really wanted to continue doing this until the end while hearing ‘persistent’. If I have anything to wish for, I want to be persistent again together with the members. Although no one knows when. 

Q.What do you want Hyomin to be remembered as?

I don’t have anything in mind. I’m grateful even if they just say “She does work hard.” 

HYOMIN ASKS, TAROT CARDS ANSWER.

Hyomin: This might not be T-ara’s last album…but anyway, this so-called “last” album, will it turn out well?

Answer: This card refers to ‘me’ of the past. It shows that you had lots of thoughts and worries, but even so, you kept your balance and tried your best to work hard. The card that refers to the current you shows that you’re still maintaining your balance. You are maintaining your balance between your past experiences and the positive influence of your future. At last, the card that refers to your future shows that you will have something to gain even in the midst of a stressful situation. It means that even though you might not be necessarily happy, you will still gain something even in the midst of concerns and worries. It means that you will get stronger and will gain new possibilities in the future. You can say that you will have a successful fruit-bearing.

Hyomin: Does this divination sign apply both on me and our team?

Answer: This divination sign applies on the person picking up the card. But of course, since the question is about a team album, it will take an influence on that too. 

Hyomin: Will my solo endeavours turn out well in the future? 

Answer: This card means that you can be either the superior or the assistant. It means that instead of being confident of the things you have achieved so far, you will start having the desire to try something new. This card that shows a person hanging upside down means that you will start viewing your job in a different perspective. The other card means conflict. You will have a conflict between the thing/job you have done so far and the new thing/job you will be doing.

Hyomin: I’m 29 now. I’m curious about my fate that will approach me in the future. 

Answer: The two cards you have picked have the same meaning. One means new news coming to you and the other means letter. If we were to interpret this, it means that someone will confess to you. This card means someone will passionately and enthusiastically ask you out. It’s a person who has known you for a long time. They’ve been faithful all along and never had a change of heart. But even so, you will still hesitate. Because the feelings you have for that person are close to friendship. Looking at the card, that person will confess to you very soon.

Negative Levels: From 3.5e To 5e

An undead wight bashes an adventurer, and she feels cold and weak, while the wight moves with greater vigor than before. 

When the wight strikes her again, she grows weaker, as if her life force were slipping away. 

Her friends see her face drain of color and her flesh shrivel slightly. 

With the third strike, the adventurer falls to the ground, a desiccated husk. 

A fellow adventurer, also struck by the wight, survives the encounter. 

Over the next day his spirit rallies, and he throws off the hungry force that clawed at his very soul. 

Some horrible creatures, especially undead monsters, possess a fearsome supernatural ability to drain levels from those they strike in combat. 

The creature making the attack draws a portion of its victim’s life force from him or her. 

Most attacks like these require a successful melee attack roll—mere physical contact is not enough. 

Monks, for instance, can pound such creatures with their fists without risking their life energy.

Each successful energy drain attack bestows one or more negative levels on the opponent. 

A creature takes the following penalties for each negative level it has gained. 

–1 on all skill checks and ability checks. 

–1 on attack rolls and saving throws. 

–5 hit points.

 –1 effective level (whenever the creature’s level is used in a die roll or calculation, reduce it by one for each negative level)

If the victim casts spells, he or she loses access to one spell as if he or she had cast their highest-level, currently available spell. 

(If he or she has more than one spell at their highest level, they choose which he or she loses.) 

In addition, when he or she next prepares spells or regains spell slots, he or she gets one less spell slot at her highest spell level. 

Negative levels remain for 24 hours or until removed with a spell, such as greater restoration. 

After 24 hours, the afflicted creature must attempt a constitution save (DC 10 + ½ attacker’s HD + attacker’s Charisma modifier)

If the saving throw succeeds, the negative level goes away with no harm to the creature. 

The afflicted creature makes a separate saving throw for each negative level it has gained. 

If the save fails, the negative level goes away, but the creature’s level is also reduced by one. 

A character with negative levels at least equal to his or her current level, or drained below 1st level, is instantly slain. 

Depending on the creature that killed them, he or she may rise the next night as a monster of that kind. 

If not, they rise as an undead. 

A creature gains 5 temporary hit points for each negative level it bestows (though not if the negative level is caused by a spell or similar effect).
