no ones even online to see this

scruffy-deer replied to your post “I think of how I am so sexual and flirty (maybe not as much now) and…”

People literally tell you every day what they want to do to you. And every picture of you that has appeared was met with tremendous praise. Please see reason! You are tremendous and beautiful!

I think my mindset is one that pertains more to “real life” interaction (or the lack thereof). I am always grateful of the acceptance and validation I get from people online, even though I feel I have been less responsive to it lately, and I have feared that relying on this validation too much will burn out the relationships I have with said people. I don’t want to be a burden to anyone’s emotions and patience.

right now I really crave interactions that are not only intellectually and emotionally supportive, but physically. I want people to hang out with, cuddle with, sleep with. people who can make me feel comfortable and get me.

i'm so annoyed at arzaylea and lindsay and their stans she's such a hypocrite preaching about positivity and kindness after attacking an innocent girl online with lindsay and encouraging others to do so as well. she's 22 years old she should start acting like it. honestly like her horrible personality is why i hate her not because she's going out with luke.

and i’m kind of annoyed at luke as well like i get he can’t control what she does but honestly he should’ve said something, it was one of his fans that his girlfriend bullied and it just irritates me that he’s just acting like it didn’t happen and is going to continue dating her even after seeing what she’s truly like

He should apologize to the poor girl if Arzaylea’s not gonna do it. Maybe he should be a decent person and follow her or DM her or something…..? I feel like getting to talk to the lead singer of her favorite band would almost (almost) make up for the fact that she was harassed by his 22 year old girlfriend. But he won’t do anything because that would mean not only publicly acknowledging Arzaylea but taking the blame for her actions and we all know he doesn’t like to do that….so…. 🐸☕️

How to Cope with Change

1. See it as a process, not a one time event. When you make a change in your life, there are lots of small adaptations to be made. It takes time to process and adjust to those changes – so be patient with yourself.

2. Change the way you think about change. Try to see it in a positive light. Even although there are lots of negatives and challenges, you’re likely to benefit in the end.

3. Face your feelings, and especially the negative ones. If you don’t, they’ll simmer beneath the surface and make it harder for you to cope. Feelings are neither good nor bad. They just are. If you feel bad, you feel bad!

4. Notice any areas where you have control as that will help you to feel less trapped or boxed in.

5. Pay attention to your thoughts and attitudes – and choose to look for the positives, and to frame uncertainties in a hopeful way.

6. Stay in touch with people who care, and can act as a support in this time of change.

How to Feel Better Each Day

Written by Emma, Photography by Isabella

Life gets hard, and sometimes I wish there was a way to pause it and go back in time to when I was happier but unfortunately life doesn’t work like that so I have to figure out other ways to deal with it. Small changes in your everyday life can add up to big improvements over time, simple things, that don’t even require a huge lifestyle change.

One of the Actual Problems with the internet is that people spend a lot of time on the internet get their perceptions get warped and they start to think abundance online (or not even online, really just within their ‘bubble’ online) have real estate in the actual physical world and that really isn’t the case

So you get people who believe things that are just completely untrue cause it got repeated a lot, or people who presume various groups are much larger/smaller than they actually are purely based on how often they see things online which is really, really dangerous and will fuck you up if you let it.

Hilariously people in the media seem EXTRA vulnerable to this.

anonymous asked:

Is there a list of tabletops designed by/attributed to women? Any genre is fine, I just couldn't think of a single one.

Sure thing! Just off the top of my head:

Emily Care Boss

Very possibly one of the only creators in the tabletop roleplaying hobby whose stuff is even more artsy than Jenna Moran’s (see below), her games consist primarily of story driven one-shot titles with romantic themes, ranging from LARP frameworks to games designed for asynchronous online play (i.e., no direct interaction between players). Her most famous work is probably Breaking the Ice, a two-player RPG that’s literally designed to be played as part of a date. Much of her stuff is available for free; you’ll find it all on her site.

Cynthia Celeste Miller

A contributing author for both Mutants & Masterinds and Shadowrun 4th Edition, her best-known headline projects include Cartoon Action Hour, a genre emulation piece designed for games in the mode of 1980s Saturday morning cartoons like He-Man, G.I. Joe and Transformers G1; and Tomorrow Knights, a one-off tabletop adaptation of the comic series of the same name.

Jenna Moran

One of the biggest names today in the tabletop-roleplaying-games-as-art movement, her stuff has come up previously in my recommendation posts in the form of Chuubo’s Marvellous Wish-Granting Engine. Other notable works include Nobilis, a diceless god game that’s probably the highest-powered tabletop RPG ever published in terms of the sheer scale of what player characters are capable of - available in both grimdark early 2000s flavour and optimistic 2010s flavour - and an award-winning tabletop adaptation of the popular Hong Kong comic series Weapons of the Gods.

Sarah Newton

Ms. Newton works primarily with the FATE system, so if storygaming is your thing, her stuff is definitely worth checking out. She first came to the hobby’s attention with the swords-and-sorcery tome Legends of Anglerre, which she co-authored with Chris Birch; sadly, it’s no longer available via legitimate channels due to an expired license. However, her solo followup project, Mindiammer, remains very much available. It’s a sci-fi game that’s probably best described by the following hypothetical question: what if, early in its history, Iain M Banks’ Culture had gotten into a cold war with Warhammer 40K’s Imperium of Man? Gonzo transhumanism squares off against sinister tech-priests and fanatical space marines in stompy, radiation-spewing power armour - and yes, you can totally play as a sapient starship.

Annie Rush

I’ve previously plugged her Run Robot Red, a dystopian game about funny little robots. Her other major work is The Secret Lives of Gingerbread Men, a rules-light (as in “only 18 pages long”) game about living gingerbread men that presents itself as a 1:1 scale miniatures game. Yes, it wants you to use an actual gingerbread man as your minifig, and your actual home as the terrain.

There are plenty of others, of course; if you’ve been following this blog, you know that I’m mostly into auteur-driven indie games, so I’m not the best one to ask about contributing authors on major game lines like Dungeons & Dragons or the World of Darkness stuff - the preceding list focuses on notable solo projects by female creators.

I’ve literally just finished watching One Day At A Time and I decided I’d tweet the actresses who play Penelope and Elena just to thank them for their portrayal and LGBTQ representation. I never expected them to be online or even see my tweets but they did, they both liked them and Justina even replied to me. The show was wonderful and it handled so many issues and problems that everyone goes through in a thoughtful but also funny manner. Everyone was being treated as equals and the same person. Apart from dickhead Victor who couldn’t accept Elena as who she is. But the show is one I’d recommend. 10/10.

Sorry I haven’t been around, but I’ve been busy this past week. There also hadn’t been anything new to report. Until yesterday. :-)

Normally I exercise a few times a week during the day when no one is home. I missed Friday, though, so I decided to do it yesterday instead. I put on my “special” workout clothes, and knocked on my son’s door to let him know I was heading down to the exercise room we have in the basement, in case he was looking for me.

See, my special outfit is that because I went looking for a flattering outfit to wear in front of my son (even though yesterday was the first time I ever have). I found a great pair of yoga pants and a matching sports bra that showed some good cleavage. Then I followed some advice I saw online: I bought the outfit one size smaller.

So the reason I gave my son for knocking on his door was that I would have headphones on, so I wouldn’t hear him calling me. But of course the real reason was to let him know what I was wearing.

I went down and stretched like I normally do. Just before I got on the treadmill, my son came into the room saying he was going to lift weights. And he did, but every time I looked at him in the mirror on the wall, I caught him looking at me.

I only ran for 10 minutes, half what I normally do. But then I asked my son if he would help me add some weight lifting to help me get a little strength instead of just doing cardio exercises. He was surprised, but said he would.

He showed me a couple different things (nothing I didn’t already know) but most of it was him watching my tits threaten to pop out of my top. My favorite part was doing the bench press when he was spotting me, which had his crotch only a few inches from my face. I had already been a little worked up since he first started watching me, but the realization of how close he was got me so wet I was sure I was going to soak through my yoga pants. So sure that I stopped after that and said I needed to shower before getting dinner started.

He followed me upstairs, hopefully checking out my ass. ;-) Before I went in my room, though, I thanked him for helping me, and asked if maybe he could start being my personal trainer after school. He blushed as he said sure, but I pretended like I didn’t notice. I thanked him and gave him a kiss, then went in my room and masturbated desperately in the shower. Lol

Announcing The Elder Scrolls Online: Morrowind, the next chapter in the award-winning The Elder Scrolls Online series! Return to the iconic island of Vvardenfell for over 30 hours of adventure in a brand new ESO location, with a new player class, a new PvP mode (Battlegrounds), a new Trial, and so much more.

The Elder Scrolls Online: Morrowind will be available on PC, Mac, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on June 6, 2017. Watch our cinematic announcement trailer to get some backstory and see the new player class, the Warden, in action for the first time. You may even recognize an old friend from your earlier ESO adventures.

I keep seeing all the bookish subscription boxes people are getting, with wicked cool book swag, and I realized a lot of the book swag is created by the readers themselves. I can’t go into a regular store- even Barnes and Noble- and find any book swag that isn’t for the most popular series at the moment and maybe bookmarks. But no one thinks readers may want the same thing that sport fans do, which is swag to show our pride!!

But now if you want a shirt that says “books are magic” some reader online made it, if you want a mug that says you’re a “book dragon” you can find it. You want a sticker, a shirt, a candle, a bookmark for a specific fandom? You can find that!! Yeah, it sucks that we had to create it ourselves, but at the same time it’s amazing that we wanted it and so we made it! Plus most of the money will go the reader who created it. Book nerds are amazing!

Please do the Pottermore Reading!

I’m seeing people throwing a fit about there being only one Great Wizarding School for North America and it’s stated on Pottermore exactly why. 

Wizarding populations of most countries choose the option of home schooling. Occasionally, too, the magical community in a given country is tiny or far-flung and correspondence courses(distance learning, it would be akin to online courses now) have been found a more cost-effective means of educating the young.”

It’s not safe to assume that all the magical children in the country would even attend the school but instead would be homeschooled or do their schooling through the mail.  

In regards to smaller schools that is also addressed:

“There are eleven long-established and prestigious wizarding schools worldwide, all of which are registered with the International Confederation of Wizards. Smaller and less well-regulated institutions have come and gone, are difficult to keep track of, and are rarely registered with the appropriate Ministry (in which case, I cannot vouch for the standard of education they might offer).”

This is also mentioned when discussing Uagadou,the African school:

“ Although Africa has a number of smaller wizarding schools, there is only one that has stood the test of time (at least a thousand years) and achieved an enviable international reputation: Uagadou. The largest of all wizarding schools, it welcomes students from all over the enormous continent.”

As far as Ilvermorny itself there are some things that are being stated in the schools story such as the sorting ceremony,wand selection and the robe colors. They’re simply being overlooked.

Ilvermorny Sorting Ceremony:

“ While the rest of the school watches from the circular balcony overhead, new students file into the round entrance hall. They stand around the walls and, one by one, are called to stand on the symbol of the Gordian Knot set into the middle of the stone floor. In silence the school then waits for the enchanted carvings to react. If the Horned Serpent wants the student, the crystal set into its forehead will light up. If the Wampus wants the student, it roars. The Thunderbird signifies its approval by beating its wings, and the Pukwudgie will raise its arrow into the air.

Should more than one carving signify its wish to include the student in its house, the choice rests with the student. Very rarely – perhaps once a decade – a student is offered a place in all four houses.“

Wand Selection:

“Once students have been allocated a house they are led into a large hall where they select (or are selected by) a wand.”

Ilvermorny robes and their colors:

“ The robes of Ilvermorny are blue and cranberry. The colours honour Isolt and James: blue because it was Isolt’s favourite colour and because she had wished to be in Ravenclaw house as a child; cranberry in honour of James’s love of cranberry pie. All Ilvermorny students’ robes are fastened by a gold Gordian Knot, in memory of the brooch Isolt found in the ruins of the original Ilvermorny cottage.

Over the years, we’ve effectively brainwashed the core of our audience to distrust anything that they disagree with. And now it’s gone too far.

John Ziegler, a conservative radio host, to The New York Times. Wielding Claims of ‘Fake News,’ Conservatives Take Aim at Mainstream Media.

Via The New York Times:

Until now, that term had been widely understood to refer to fabricated news accounts that are meant to spread virally online. But conservative cable and radio personalities, top Republicans and even Mr. Trump himself, incredulous about suggestions that fake stories may have helped swing the election, have appropriated the term and turned it against any news they see as hostile to their agenda.

In defining “fake news” so broadly and seeking to dilute its meaning, they are capitalizing on the declining credibility of all purveyors of information, one product of the country’s increasing political polarization. And conservatives, seeing an opening to undermine the mainstream media, a longtime foe, are more than happy to dig the hole deeper.

Related: In early December, Slate’s Will Oremus argued that “Fake news is a real, specific problem. But in all the furor around who’s making it, who’s sharing it, its impact, and how to stop it, it’s easy to lose sight of something more fundamental: what it is. The broader the definition, the less useful the concept becomes—and it’s already verging on counterproductive.”

Too, unfortunately, true.

Sombra meets her S/O online, turns out they’re a member of OW, neither one finds out until they meet out in the battlefield


You peered around the corner, your eyes sweeping across the battlefield.

“McCree, you got eyes on the enemy?” You said into the comm, a frown tugging at your mouth. You hadn’t seen many of your teammates as they were trying to hold of Talon. However, something was keeping any of you from seeing them.

“Not yet, sweetpea. You got anythin’?” The cowboy’s voice echoed into your ear, and you smiled. Even in the worst of times, he managed to cheer you up.

“Nope. I’m starting to think we’ve been tricked,” you said as you stepped out into the light.

You saw nothing in the streets, your hand resting on your gun. You struggled to walk over the fallen debris, your boots sinking into the mud.

A giggle sounded from behind you, and you turned, staring at the empty stretch of city. There was nothing there, but you knew you had heard something.

You jumped when a hand covered your mouth, and you were suddenly high in the air, your feet just barely hanging over the side of the roof. A shrill scream left your lips as you clung to whoever it was, biting down on your cheek.

“Not fond of heights?” A voice teased.

You looked at your captor, your heart in your throat. She was brightly colored and dressed in many shades of purple, her expression teasing.

“Let me go,” you said through gritted teeth.

“Are you sure?” She asked, glancing down at the city below.

“Y/N, are you alright, darlin’?” McCree asked through the comm.

The woman stopped smiling and narrowed her eyes, staring at you.

“Y/N?”

“What’s it to you?” You kicked your legs, but you couldn’t reach her properly.

“Sombra,” she said.

Your panic subsided as you met her eyes. You had met her on an online site, spending almost a year talking to each other. She became your closest friend and the one who made you happy when you saw a message from her.

Your feet touched the ground as she set you down carefully, checking you over.

“What’re you doing here?” She whispered.

“I’m an Overwatch agent. And you? I never thought I’d meet you here!”

She gave you an odd look, and you suddenly realized how she had ended up here. She was a part of Talon, your enemy, and she was here to take out your friends.

“Darlin’, we got what we needed. It’s time to leave,” McCree said.

You rubbed the back of your neck and shifted, your cheeks pink.

“I need to ge–”

She was kissing you, her mouth warm against yours. She slipped an arm around your waist as she tilted her head, your hands moving to tangle in her hair.

When she parted from you, you were panting, your ears and face a bright shade of red.

“Let’s meet up later,” she whispered when her lips touched your cheek.

And then she was gone. You rubbed your cheek and sighed, barely even hearing McCree’s voice in your ear.

Pining Hate

Camp Pining Hearts gets canceled due to low ratings, sending Peridot into deep despair. Steven helps Peridot organize a petition to bring the show back, and they are surprised to learn that an online streaming company is picking it up for a new season. But when Peridot is honored for “saving” Camp Pining Hearts and is invited to a taping of one of the new episodes, she’s shocked to see the new season is just a hollow shell of the show’s former glory, with bad writing, cheap sets and most of the original cast replaced by younger actors. Can Peridot accept that even a “bad” CPH is better than no CPH at all, or will she have to organize another petition to keep it off the air?

anonymous asked:

See? Same pattern. Online together even in their time off. They're either on vacay with each other or still in Scotland. They reappear on SM from time to time, but most of the time they're silent. One of them might give clues where he/she is while the other's whereabouts remain a mystery. Always the same and so obvious now! We don't need to worry about other people. They're so not significant for our ship!

Wherever they are they do seem to be on the same schedule. Quiet yesterday possibly due to travel and now coming on together today. I would not be at all surprised to see the cast get at least a few days off as the production and crew get and set up in the new location in Cape Town. And the hiatus may be a bit longer than that and encompass the award and fan con appearance dates since the make up artist isn’t due back until March they are probably not going to be shooting until then at least. Maybe they have taken a few days somewhere, or maybe they are getting settled in in Cape Town, but wherever they are, you are correct anon, it sure looks like they are together. The SM times and the lack of pictures is a very good hint both that they are together, and that it’s not Scotland or SA as they would not have to conceal either of those locations as they are both expected to be there for work. And Sam made his final gym visit yesterday in Glasgow suggesting he was leaving very shortly. But the times they have been on could be London or anywhere in Europe, NYC or Miami would fit, or even Cape Town as it is only 2 hours ahead of Glasgow in time zones. But LA doesn’t fit so well.
