no one wants to get involved

anonymous asked:

from one to ten how powerful would Chara's 'Ramones' phase be

Even though their attitude, tattoos and love of black skinny jeans may say otherwise, teen Chara is actually mostly just punk in spirit. They don’t tend towards specific music genres and their wardrobe when going outside is actually usually quite conservative.

They want people to think they’re hardcore and spooky, but getting people to think you’re either of these things usually involves interacting with people and having their attention for a lot longer than Chara is comfortable with, so that dream doesn’t really go anywhere before they’re older and more confident in social situations.

When they’re younger and more fearful, they find it easier to avoid attracting attention in turtlenecks and cardigans than in punk fashion.

Penumbra Transcript Update

There have been 34 episodes (and bonus episodes) of the Penumbra Podcast so far (as of June 26, 2017).

Out of those 34 episodes, this project has completed 11 transcripts so far! 

Adding that to the couple of transcripts that already existed, the Penumbra Podcast now has (or will soon have, since I’m checking the last one right now) a grand total of 14 transcripts! 

I’m terrible at math, but google says that 14 out of 34 is 41%! Forty-one percent!

That’s almost half of the episodes made more accessible with text. Thanks to all the volunteers who have worked on this project so far, and for everyone else who is currently checking, transcribing, or on our list!

Kevin also says to “thank the crew” for him, so thanks, all!

We’re still working on the rest of the transcripts, so as always, if you want to get involved, shoot us a message or fill out our updated volunteering form

Hey why isn't that ok??? Isn't a lot of langst like vent art

Vent art is fine and all but with the langst it’s ALWAYS Lance getting hurt, abused, or killed. Now if it was kinda evenly spread between the characters there wouldn’t be a problem but for some reason it’s always him. And I know his self worth issues is a factor in that but like damn, there is no reason for him to be the only one people target when they want some angst involved.

;;   just came back of a spontaneous camping trip with friends back from school. since it involved a lot of drinking and very little sleep, i am still utterly exhausted. too tired to write tbh. but !!! i have a lot of muse which is while i’ll work on some social media aesthetics&  you can like this if you want one of our muses !!!  ( just btw, @thecompetitor you’ll get one for imogen&sara already bc i love them too much )

create a creature for my rp!

the form involves some scary looking creatures so just be warned of that, i think it would be awesome to get my followers involved with my rp and what better – and funner – way than to create freaking monsters !! ( there are only four options for looks so if i get more than 2 for one look, i’ll have to choose a different look .. sorry about that )

THE FORM IS HERE IF YOU WANT TO CREATE ONE!

She Never Stopped Smiling

by reddit user Pippinacious

Fly was an odd kid, even by odd kid standards. I met her in sixth grade, when our alphabetically ordered last names landed us in adjacent seats, and she turned to look at me with a cheerful, gap toothed smile.

“Hi!” She said.

“Hi.” I replied quietly.

I was shy and intimidated by my first day in middle school, but she wasn’t the least bit nervous.

Hey pals. Apparently this is a thing that we, as an internet femslash community, need, so it is time for Grouchy Aunt J’s Guide To Fandom Deportment.

1. I know that you really like your favourite actors, especially the ones involved in your fave wlw ships. I totally understand this! They are pretty, and wlw fandom is really fun, and if your ship is also a canon ship then it is super exciting and validating to see yourself reflected in media that you love. I, too, love that feeling and get really passionate about the media that I watch, which is why I am a Fandom Old.

2. The actors in your favourite ships are people. Like, real people, with anxieties and food preferences and sometimes they have weird hair days and some of them are introverted and some of them are extroverted, etc etc etc. When they are acting in your favourite media, they are going to work.

3. Part of an actor’s job these days is to sometimes be around on social media. Sometimes not! If they are kind/friendly/available on social media, that is a fun perk of someone who is going the extra mile for their job. You are not entitled to this.

4. Even if you super like a ship and are really passionate about fandom, there are things it is not alright to do. Actors are people, and when fans start treating them poorly it is unkind and potentially frightening or traumatic. Plus, your behaviour reflects badly on all fans and means that fandom as a whole doesn’t get to have nice things anymore. (Thanks, jerks.)

5. It is never okay to:

  • harass actors on social media because something about their character is interfering with your ship/they’re not supporting your ship enough/they’re supporting the wrong ship too much/their character is problematic/the ship you think their ship is better than is problematic/just whatever please stop it this is not their problem. Tweeting at them will not fix whatever is upsetting you on the show you like, but it is probably pretty hurtful for them and not something they should have to put up with.
  • harass/question actors who are involved in queer ships about their sexuality in public spaces. People’s sexuality is private, and being involved in portraying a queer canon or subtext ship doesn’t give fans the right to know about an actor’s queerness or lack thereof unless they choose to volunteer that.
  • tell actors on social media about any sexual fantasies you may or may not have about them, b/c sexual consent also applies to actors.
  • send actors unsolicited links to/hand bound novellas/lovingly hand-lettered scrolls of fanfiction, especially smutty fanfiction, especially especially if that author is not aware that their fic is getting sent to actors inappropriately.
  • send actors your nsfw fanart about them, or someone else’s nsfw fanart about them, oh my g o d.
  • ask them to read your fanfiction or autograph your fanfiction, damn.

5a. A good rule of thumb is to ask yourself: would I, or another a reasonable person, want to see this [insert fanwork of varying levels of nsfw] about a representation of myself/themselves? Most actors are actual people who find this just as upsetting as you might find it, if someone drew fanart of you and then brought it to your workplace.

5b. Yes, I know, there is a certain amount of distance involved in creating fanworks because they are about fictional characters and that storytelling and play is one of the things I love about fandom. But I also never, under any circumstances, would want any of the actors involved in my ships to read my fanfiction because it would be super uncomfortable and that’s the point

6. Also, your favourite actor’s non-actor family and friends are just that: not actors. Don’t bother them. Don’t - hypothetically - stalk them and try to catfish them to get information about your favourite actor. It’s super super not okay and it’s a huge boundary violation.

In conclusion: social media is super great and has changed fandom in a lot of neat ways, but having cool TV and movie actors available to connect with in that way is a privilege, not a right. Let’s all act like we are worthy of it.

The Fourth House - The House of Home

This is the fourth part of a twelve part series briefly explaining how the signs work in each house. Enjoy!

Ah, the House of Home, where the Moon and Cancer are rulers. It is in this house where you begin to learn what it means to say there is no place like home. You have found security, what nurtures you, keeps you in peace, and are ready to plant a home in this safe space. Having undergone the experiences that have shaped you to the person you are today, it is here where you decide: “yes, this is what I will call home because it keeps me protected.” The events that might have occurred in your life to realize what type of place you’re calling home can be of the relationship between your nurturer, such as your mother or father, regardless if these relationships were good or bad. (With further research these relationships can be analyzed with this placement.) Another aspect of home is where you come from, such as finding out your ancestry, heritage, and what you consider to be your culture. Since we are home, this is the private self that comes into play. We are home after a long day at work and are finally at the dinner table with our loved ones where we can be ourselves. It is also in this house where we express how we want to guide our loved ones to help them achieve what we believe is a full life. All in all, the Fourth House represents memories, photo albums, family, and everything you would call home. 

Aries in the Fourth House: So we know Aries always wants to be number one, and to be number one you always have to be achieving something. You are the same way at home. You may always be doing something in the house that involves action, like cleaning, painting, or rearranging furniture. If something needs to get done in the house, you do it. However, this can also be a bad thing because you may limit someone else from learning how to do for themselves and can be overbearing. Just because you can get the job done right and fast, doesn’t mean you should always do it. Be the leader, but do it in a way that others feel right following you. 

Taurus in the Fourth House: Having financial security and stability are what makes you feel like you are home. Not only for yourself but also your loved ones since this is how you feel protected. The drive that you have to achieve these things serves as a guide to the people in your life who might need some assistance in building better lives for themselves. However, you can come off too forceful so try to ease up a bit and let others ask for your help. Overall, your presence is a strong one and will not go unnoticed. You are extremely influential to the people around you so you have the power to lead people down the right paths of life if you learn to not let your temper get the best of you. 

Gemini in the Fourth House: The mind of a Gemini is always restless. Your family may know you as being energetic, talkative, and always up to something. There is never a dull moment with you because you’re full of curiosities and putting your thoughts into action. The perfect home for you involves a safe space where you can comfortably communicate with those around you and have them feel just as comfortable. Knowledge is power and being able to send that message is how you affect people’s lives. You want people to expand their minds to their full potential, as you would want for yourself, and when you achieve this, you are home. 

Cancer in the Fourth House: The familiar is home to you. How you were raised as a child can very well be a reflection of how you may set a home for yourself today or in the future. You have a strong sense to nurture and protect as any Cancer would, however, these qualities are much stronger in this placement since this is where Cancer rules.Your emotions have great power and can set people in the right direction if you learn to use them for good and not just be an emotional mess. In order to be the mother or nurturer to your loved ones you have to guard your feelings and be strong with your emotions. This way those around you can also learn how to be more in tune with their own emotions, and what better way to learn than from you. 

Leo in the Fourth House: You have a light in you that yearns to be shined at all times. Around family and loved ones you wish to be at the center of attention and it can cause you stress when you are not. You must learn that others may feel unimportant around you because you might not let them have a chance at the spotlight. Everyone has a light of their own so it is crucial for you to see that others want to be recognized too. Once you understand and are in tune with your ego and sense of self, this is how you will influence others in making lives for themselves. Since this is the house of home and togetherness you may find it difficult to lead others because all you want is to be the center of them. The Leo placement in the home can be one more of learning than of teaching. 

Virgo in the Fourth House: Very detail-oriented, the way you establish a home for yourself is through creating a routine based life. You can be the stereotypical Virgo of being a neat freak at home when you’re being critical on the house itself or your family. You set high standards for yourself and loved ones often causing stress in everyone because you make them feel like they have to be perfect, but perfection doesn’t exist. You have a strong sense of intuition like a mother’s intuition which helps you be of great service and a counselor: the ultimate goal of Virgo. People may be attracted to asking you for advice but there is a reason and you may have the answers to things you wouldn’t even imagine, all you have to do is dig into your intuition.  

Libra in the Fourth House: Living in harmony and peace is the only thing this Libra could ever ask for. When your family is in a good place and coming home feels relaxing and loving, this is when you are most happy. You are the peacemaker so your family has gotten use to you being the mediator and can constantly expect you to be the one to make everyone get along again. You don’t mind this too much because in the end you need the love of your family to survive. You can be somewhat dependent on others and are not too fond of being alone, but to avoid unhappiness, you must learn to find peace and harmony all on your own. 

Scorpio in the Fourth House: Since we are entering a private space, it is here where Scorpio feels comfortable enough to let their guard down. You may have deep, intimate relationships with your family members since you want to know them to their deepest, darkest level because you believe this is truly knowing a person. To them, however, you will always be a mystery. You have a powerful aura and it can express strong feelings of intimacy and depth. You may come off controlling to get what you want and this can be a turn off. Your highs will be very high and your lows very low so if you find yourself at a very low point try not to bring others down with you. Instead bring them with you when you come back up and aim higher.

Sagittarius in the Fourth House: With how much you love the outdoors, adventure, and exploring, your home will be a reflection of that. Doesn’t a house with big open windows looking out the forest sound beautiful? With walls filled of photographs of all the places you have travelled to. Freedom and independence are everything to you so you can make a home out of just about any space that is comfortable. You can teach people to be more independent and a bit more self centered, but in a good way. You show others that it is okay to be on your own and do things for yourself because in the end we really only have ourselves so why not make a home within ourselves so that wherever your travels take you, you are home. 

Capricorn in the Fourth House: At home you feel best being the provider and ensuring that everyone feels safe, protected, and emotionally satisfied. Troubles of unity may rise for the Capricorn in this house because this house is ruled by its opposite, Cancer. Where Cancer may be telling everyone how they feel, Capricorn keeps to themselves. You must learn to help others find purpose in life and not keep quiet of your intelligence because it might be that extra help they need. You may feel as though your words do not matter to people so you stay out of their lives, but in this house we are not meant to be alone so it is essential that you learn to find a home with your loved ones. You may have strong doubts within yourself because of the way you grew up but you must find confidence within yourself and mend any broken ties in your family. 

Aquarius in the Fourth House: As eccentric as the Aquarius is, your home is nothing of the ordinary. You will be interested in the innovative and your home will show for that with the newest technologies or even by the amount of times you move around. With family, you enjoy bringing everyone together but will not be tied down by them. If anything, you enjoy being in a group setting only to show off how different you are from everyone else. However, it is in this setting where you must learn that what you say has a strong influence on people so you should use that to direct them in their lives. You tend to want to help humanity as a whole forgetting that each individual has emotions that need to be understood. You will for the most part be independent in your domestic affairs but this is the house of home so don’t forget that we must come together here.

Pisces in the Fourth House: In the home, you will probably give yourself to your family more than you should. Everyone will continue to take as long as you keep giving. Your unhappiness should not equal their happiness, this is where your strong sense of empathy can get you into trouble. Your safe space is anywhere where you can be as imaginative as you want to be. Your mind explores places one cannot even dream so we may never really know you. You, however, are very intuitive and psychic about the feelings of others so you will know most of what is going on in the household. This can bring you to smother the ones you love because all you want to do is protect them but guilt tripping them to make them feel empathetic towards you is only going to push them away.

Thanks for reading and I hope you enjoyed this short analysis!

Can people not get upset about the dad dating sim the Grumps helped make when it’s not even out yet

Like, it’s probably gonna be a little silly because the Grumps and their friends were involved, but it’s an entirely gay male dating sim that doesn’t appear to cater to yaoi fangirls. Which is unprecedented afaik. And anyway, it’s not out yet! Maybe it’s awesome, we don’t know yet

Like i know we all wanted to either have a Grump dating sim like that one Normal Boots did, or like a sidescrolling beat-em-up or an RPG where we play as the Grumps. But these guys endeavor to do things differently, and never do what we expect.

Lots of people worked really hard on this for over a year, the least we could do is give it a fair chance. Just sayin.

Gemini: Important Points

Overview:

Conversation, mysteriousness, and quickness are what stimulate a Gemini mind the most. If you have a conversation with a Gemini, you will remember it for an eternity. If you’re a mysterious or secretive person, a Gemini will find a way to figure out the things they want to know someway or somehow. If you are a swift person who enjoys being adventurous or on the go, you will be a great addition to a Gemini’s life.

Don’t:

  • Do not expect a Gemini to be fully open at the beginning of any relationship.
  • Do not ever force them into something they don’t want to be involved in or a part of.
  • Do not try to be someone else or someone you’re not around them, they can see through fakeness like you can see through glass.
  • Do not limit yourself around a Gemini, especially if you’re trying to be friends with one. 

Do:

  • Do give them time to get comfortable and used to you in any relationship (friendship, boyfriend, etc)
  • Be yourself and feel free to live as you normally would around a Gemini, that’s what they’ll love to see the most.
  • Be adventurous and wild (not too wild) but enjoy yourself.
  • Show a Gemini that you care, and they will have no problem with doing the same in return.

To you Gemini:

Stop being at war with yourself. You are a very hard worker and often do more for others then most would do for you. Love yourself, and continue to live yourself as you would. Be the greatest version of yourself that you could be.

So the 20th anniversary of the publication of Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone is coming up and I thought it might be fun to do a group reread! 

This is for anyone to get involved in, no matter your house, so hopefully we can all go back and relive the magic together

I’m aware that people have different commitments and a lot of people still have exams so, by popular consensus, we’re going to be taking it slow so there’s no pressure to read particularly fast. We’re going to be reading one chapter a day on weekdays, and two chapters a day on weekends which hopefully is a pace everyone will be able to keep up with

This means the reread will last just under two weeks, so we will be starting on the 14th of June, meaning we’ll finish on June 26th, the actual 20th anniversary

It’s up to you how much you want to get involved and how to document your own rereading journey, but I’ll be posting my own thoughts on each chapter on this blog; things I’d forgotten, things I never picked up on before, favourite quotes and moments, how my thoughts on characters have changed, that kind of stuff

I’ll also be posing a discussion question based on the chapter so feel to chip in your own thoughts on that!

If you want to reply to me or make your own posts, artwork, questions, anything like that then use the hashtag #hogwartsreread so we can all join in each others discussions and talk to each other about our rereading experience! 

Reblog if you’re interested so we can get as many people involved as possible! I’ll be posting reminders as we get closer to the day but I’m so excited and hopefully you guys are looking forward to it too! 

I found this photo on Meghan Trainor’s instagram. And it really does represent the situation right now.

As I know, one of the victims that had tragically passed away yesterday was not only an Arianator, but also a Directioner, a Mixer and a Harmonizer as well.

So this goes beyond just Ariana and her fans, it’s now all the other fandoms as well, since this happened at one of the special events where artists and their fans get to know each other better.

I’m sending my love and support to everyone, not just the ones involved but the ones who have nothing to do with this. The world relies on us to speak up and spread love.

Stay strong my loves. Please share if you find your fandom and want to send love and support to other fandoms.

anonymous asked:

why is arin literally the greatest human being on earth????

Someone else has pretty much covered the bases of this question, but I agree! He’s one of the most genuinely nice dudes on earth!

A small passion project he started, with a friend who isn’t even involved in its production anymore, has flourished into not one, but several separate businesses (Game Grumps, Starbomb, Ninja Sex Party, Gameoverse, etc.). Because he wanted to help his friends fulfill their own dreams and aspirations. So he used his own success to give them the push that they needed and has always supported them in their endeavors.

He offered to give his best friend a crazy loan of money and never expected to be paid back and that’s the nicest fucking thing.

He donates to the charities that Game Grumps gets to sponsor, and donates to lots of up-and-starting promising kickstarters and greenlit games. He also sponsors his own mom’s charity fundraisers to help her with her own business.

He’s been with his wife for more than half of their lives (since they were pre-teens!) and he loves her so fucking much that it puts other marriages to shame, honestly.

And he gets so much negativity. People shit on Arin all the time. Not just in the comments or on social media but like people shit on him in-person for being bad at the games he plays or for accidentally saying something ignorant (which, might I add, Arin has ALWAYS apologized when he’s been called out for saying something problematic and makes an effort to be better).

He gets all this negativity but he takes it in stride and he works just as hard as he always has to put out content for us and to be able to support his friends.
