not just in a friendly way

bittersweet-hiraeth  asked:

I disagree with that post about all straight guys being assholes. That’s a bit too black and white. Everyone can be an asshole, doesn’t matter whether you’re straight or not. Hardly all men are sexist dicks. A lotta girls have good reason to believe the worst of men but it’s really not fair to the good people out there and there’s plenty of them. I know good men, I strive to be one. A woman’s appearance has nothing to do with my opinion of her or the way I treat her. That’s just me though :/

If a dog bites you and you’re afraid of dogs for the rest of your life, wouldn’t it be justified? Even though not all dogs will bite you, all dogs CAN bite you. Even friendly dogs can lash out if they’re angry or scared.

I get the intention bud, I really do but “not all of us are bad” is the last thing you should be saying if your concern is actually about the women who feel threatened.

From personal experience, completely lacking any exaggeration at all, I’ve never had a positive relationship with any male figure in my 22 years of life. I’m more than happy to change my opinion if i ever interact with the “good ones” that exist out there somewhere.

I’ve only formed the opinions that I have because of my own personal experiences; there is reason behind the voice of every woman that says “men make me uncomfortable”. Your first reaction shouldn’t be to tell them WHY they shouldn’t be uncomfortable.

I don’t want to be bitter, I don’t want to feel so many negative feelings towards a whole gender, I don’t like feeling uncomfortable or scared when I’m in the presence of most guys, I don’t like harboring fear and anger in my heart towards anyone. But it’s not unjustified, and it’s not something that will change until I am proven otherwise.

…and to be real honest, you’re not doing so great proving otherwise.

Dude can you imagine what would happen if you challenged Sam to a bake off? Like okay I have a concept™ in mind rn so okay say you get someone to hack into Sam's phone and remove your guys' anniversary from his calendar a while ahead of time and then a week before you bring up a bake off and tell him he has a week to prepare and so it begins. He's so focused on it that he completely forgets about the anniversary bc um this boy totally adores friendly competition 1/2

So you guys are baking your cakes and he’s just so focused on being better than you bc how DARE you think you can bake better than him EXCUSE YOU but when the time comes to reveal the cakes his is beautiful and perfect and yours is an absolute mess (on purpose of course) with way too many sprinkles and shit everywhere but then in the middle it says ‘Happy Anniversary Love’ and he completely panics because HOW DID HE FORGET OMG ugh fluffy grumpy Sam because you made him forget your anniversary ❤️


this is so pure??? i can’t even add to it it’s so !!!!!
sam night!

What started off as a small lie, but snowballed into “this is my life now”?

My freshman year of college I was walking around campus when a very friendly looking girl waved at me. I’m awkward, so of course I waved back. The next week, the same thing.

This began the weirdest saga of my life.

For the next two years, we greeted each other as old friends every time we came across the other. She knew my name (somehow?), I never could figure hers out and it was WAY too late to ask. I just pretended I knew who she was and why she knew me.

Finally, I joined the honors program and entered my classes for my thesis. Who should be in this class but mystery girl! I was horrified. I wouldn’t be able to pass it off anymore.

First day of class we are all sitting there chatting and she greets me by name, again. I had finally learned her name from attendance, thank God. Someone asks, finally, “oh, so do you two know each other? Where’d you meet?”

Silence.

I stare at her. She stares at me. Finally she breaks down wailing. “I don’t know! I don’t know, okay, we’ve just been waving at each other for two years and it was too late to ask!”


Shes standing in my wedding next spring as one of my bridesmaids and very best friends.

So The Arcana’s pricing scheme is exploitative and terrible and I’m astonished nobody is talking about it.

The standard response from the developers is that all of the paid content is ‘optional’, but you know what I want out of my romance game? Romance. 90% of which is paid content.

Also, this assumes I don’t want to pay for the game. Except I do! I backed it on kickstarter! I want to give these people my money. But I also don’t want to be bled dry.

This isn’t even getting into how the kickstarter promised backers the game itself as a reward, then reneged on their promise, offering a paltry $10 refund to make up for it (which will buy you a grant total of 1 chapter for 1 character’s route). 

This kind of business practice hurts other kickstarter projects down the road, because it erodes people’s trust in the platform. A lot of indie otome game devs rely on kickstarter. But my experience with The Arcana has sure made me think twice about supporting any other projects.

The worst thing is I like the Arcana. The art is gorgeous, the characters are fun. I supported it on Kickstarter. I told my friends to support it on Kickstarter. But I can no longer turn a blind eye to how Nyx Hydra seems to be willfully exploiting their fans.

UPDATE: So this is what they posted in response to a fan asking them about this on twitter

I’m sorry, but this kind of snark in response to a legitimate question is horribly disrespectful towards your fans.

UPDATE 2: The developers behind The Arcana have released a statement regarding feedback and the way their team is structured. Go check it out. They’re also welcoming responses from fans and have included an email address where you can reach them.

Hogwarts/Ilvermorny Combinations

This is not exactly the type of content I usually post but a lovely anon requested me to do this so… Here it is, anon.


Hogwarts/Thunderbird


Gryffindor/Thunderbird: The brave adventurers. They are the risk takers. They’re adventurous - want to explore and make a difference. They’re brave - not being afraid to do so. They’ll stand up for what they believe in, even if they have to stand alone. Thrilling, influential, independent and confident are some of the traits they inherit.


Slytherin/Thunderbird: The cunning adventurers. They usually plan before traveling. They have something that’s driving them forward - something connected to their soul. They won’t stop till they’ve reached their goal, no matter if it’s simple or complex. They’re driven, strong-willed and unpredictable.


Ravenclaw/Thunderbird: The curious adventurers. They have deep ancient souls. Their Ravenclaw mind is full of questions and the Thunderbird in them helps to find the answers. They have the ability to see the big picture. They’re philosophical, rational and collected.


Hufflepuff/Thunderbird: The dedicated adventurers. Easygoing is in their nature - being able to get along with whoever they want wherever they go. They have a soft spot for different cultures and their people. Sweet, calm and friendly is what they are.


Hogwarts/Horned Serpent


Gryffindor/Horned Serpent: The daring scholars. Their minds are extremely fierce - having a great amount of mental power. They won’t hesitate to examine an uncanny idea they’ve had up close. They’re conservative and cautious. Unafraid to go lengths just to learn.


Slytherin/Horned Serpent: The ambitious scholars. They have a goal to achieve a certain level of education. And they will do it, no matter the obstacles. They plan before doing - calculating all the movements and what will happen if they do it in a certain way. They’re clever, tactical and realists.


Ravenclaw/Horned Serpent: The witty scholars. Perhaps the most common among all the Hogwarts/Ilvermorny combos - as intelligence is very closely connected to the mind. Their minds are dynamic. They have the ability to see beyond as it is. They’re very quick-witted, insightful and perspective.


Hufflepuff/Horned Serpent: The kind scholars. They’re most likely to use their knowledge and intelligence to help people. To understand them better. To do something good. They tend to be extremely understanding and compassionate.


Hogwarts/Wampus


Gryffindor/Wampus: The courageous warriors. It is very common for a Gryffindor to get Wampus as their Ilvermorny house. Bravery is perhaps a warrior’s main quality. They are capable of dealing with real world problems. They’re prepared to face danger. This combo tends to be all action-packed, restless and physical.


Slytherin/Wampus: The resourceful warriors. They have everything planned before going to the battlefield. They’re driven by their ambition. They want to win - they’ll do anything to win. They know that in today’s world, winning is everything.


Ravenclaw/Wampus: The intelligent warriors. The rarest of all the 16 combos. But not impossible. Their fights are not always physical. They often win the battle by outsmarting the enemy. They represent the strategical and generalship aspect of wars rather than the physical aspect.


Hufflepuff/Wampus: The just warriors. Who won’t cheat their way through. They’re the optimistic one of the crew - knowing they’ll achieve victory if they try hard enough. They’re loyal to their companions and like fair-play and justice.


Hogwarts/Pukwudgie


Gryffindor/Pukwudgie: The brave healers. Those who are willing to do anything to save people, refusing to accept that they can’t save everyone. They won’t give up, though. In the end that makes them the hero.


Slytherin/Pukwudgie: - the ambitious healers. The ambition of their heart is what’s driving them forward. Not resting till the task before them is done is what they do. They tend to be more emotional than other Slytherins but manage to use it as their advantage.


Ravenclaw/Pukwudgie: The wise healers. They’re smart, depend on their intellect and know exactly what to do to heal someone, something or themselves. They’re the perfect combination of the head and the heart.


Hufflepuff/Pukwudgie: The kind healers. The ultimate optimists. They’re work hard to heal who or what they want. Supportive, encouraging, sympathetic and selfless is what they are.



Ilvermorny houses are not Hogwarts houses’ counterparts. Your personality traits/values is your Hogwarts house and how you use them or what you use them for is your Ilvermorny house.

Uranus in the houses - viva la liberation!

In the 1st House – Liberation of an attitude. Free minded. Unique perspective on life. Quirky “eccentric” personality and opinions. Strong need for a free and unlimited self-expression. Adjusting yourself to fit into expectations of others is the biggest betrayal. Electryfing and magnetic personality. Attracts bizarre, eccentric and underdogs. Stubborn and fixated on their own ideas. Humanitarian. Looking at the bigger picture. Detached yet friendly. Blunt. Shocking atitude that rejects the norm and the ’‘carved path”. Usually they have a strong need to emphasize their style. The way they talk, look and speak – they stand out even if they tried to fit in. They embrace the change and highly value truth and open-mindness.

In the 2nd House – Liberation of values. Money comes and goes fast in their life. They may get money in a way that is considered ’'unique”; ’'different” or just plain “weird”. They can earn a living by doing things related to modern technology (like social media). They values and self-esteem are not stable, they have a lot of ups and downs and can be considered unconventional (it can be shown even through native’s fashion choices, they may like to experiment with how they look like). Their dignity and self-esteem is centered around being independent, unique and modern. That is why they may dislike and rebel against traditional  values taught by their family/society or way of earning money and investing it.

In the 3rd House – Liberation of a mind. Native has unconventional way of processing their thoughts. They have sudden flashes of inspiration and their creativity appear in the most unpredictable moments. They value independence and variety of thoughts. They may have unusual speaking patterns. Their words and ideas may come off as very suprising and they may be considered eccentric and weird (for example by their sibilings or parents if they are an only child).Their relationships with neighbours are also specific and kinda distant. Weird and shocking events may happen during their travels and communicating with others.

In the 4th House – Liberation of a soul. Native is a person with unique experiences and characteristics. Their home life can be described as a very “hot & cold” place and they themselves may appear this way to other family members. It is said that one of the parents was somehow distant from a child. They could not be physically present in the native’s life ( example: work abroad) or be distant emotionally (too logical, chaotic, eccentric). This person nature is changeable yet stubborn. They are very fixated on their own freedom and the need to preserve indviduality in their home life. They had chaotic life. They have unique tastes and usually stand out in the family whether they want it or not.

In the 5th House – Liberation of expression. Natives have an interest for unusual ways to express themselves. They enjoy trying new things and usually have artistic side that is expressed in whatever form they find currently exciting. They have a strong need for a free self-expression without any restrictions which causes them to appear shocking to others since they do not restrict themselves and live true to their nature. Unconventional and rebellious. They may feel drawn to unique or just bizarre lovers. Their romantic stories may end up as quickly as they start. These people are exciting, loving and extremely creative. Their children may be very unique and quite rebellious too.

In the 6th House – Liberation of work. Schedule and routine is almost non-existent. Plans are shattered, unstable and easily change in the blink of an eye. The only predictible thing is their unpredictibility. Altruistic and helpful.They are rebellious and truly despise rules and codes which they consider boring and limiting. They find liberation through following their own type of  ’'schedule”, by being free in their workplace, freely expressing themselves there and not being constantly observed and checked by authorities. They may prefer working alone or similar to 10th House placement as a free-lancer. They may procrastinate a lot. They develop unusual working habits. They may be very responsible or be exactly the other way – reject any kind of responsibility which they can find limiting. Their health may have many ups and downs so they should always take care of themselves. They are very creative and inventive in solving problems and fixing things.

In the 7th House – Liberation of partnerships. Natives wants equality and independent, shocking people with them. They need a lot of freedom in their relationships. Friendship is important part and probably more important than romance itself.They dislike rigid, official and unbalanced relationships and aim to achieve absolute equality with their lovers, friends and business partners. 7th House Uranus person appears shocking, electryfing and magnetic to others. They are liberated and that is who they attract too. They may start relationships really fast but they may end them with the same speed especially if they feel restricted, pressured or misunderstood by their partners.

In the 8th House – Liberation or inner resources. Natives experience many sudden changes in life which force them to look for deep, inner resources. Transformation is important part of their growth and happens a lot in their life. They have a big need to form intimate bonds but they also demand a lot of independence and tend to keep others at distance which can be sometimes troublesome for them. They are attracted to taboo topics like death, sex and the occult and usually having those kind of interest causes them to be some kind of  black sheep but because of their inner strength they are able to ignore responses of others and continue following their interest with their shocking, rebellious attitude. Highly perceptive and passionate. May suddenly inherit money through really bizarre route.

In the 9th House – Liberation of philosophy. Mediation, despising religious authorites, dropping out of university or coming up with new conspiracy theories – that is something very much in the style of this placement. 9th House person is liberated, free-minded adventurer who wants to focus on expressing their views freely. They like trying new things and learning new cultures and languages, they may attract foreigners to them! They may also try learning languages on their own. They are bright and their genius lies in their fresh, open-minded philosophy. They despise being restricted, especially in their education which can cause them to avoid going  on university or even dropping out if they feel that university life is not satisficing enough.

In the 10th House – Liberation of work path. Whatever native chooses to do they always take the importance of independence in their job. They like jobs that allows them to freely express themselves. Supressing their creations and limiting them in any way is met with resistence which cause native to usually reject job that demands them to obidiently follow instructions and authority. They like to be their own and only authority. They may be interested in making money by using technology (like using social media outlets). They may have a natural talent for fields in science, technology, metaphysics, astrology. May often change what they want to do in their profession. They may actually change jobs a lot before they settle for something for longer. They bring originality and unique perspective, they are very inventive.

In the 11th House – Liberation of companionship. Native make unique friends and activists. They are unique as friends themselves and they find unique people too. They are passionate and devoted to their causes. Very loyal to their companions. They value bonds made by choice more than those by blood. They value equality and humanitarism, they aim to spread those kind of values to society and help society to progress. Freedom of expression, communication and a lot of independence is important for them in groups they live in. Because of their somehow eccentric nature they can never really ’'fit in” on 100%, they always stand out in groups whether by choice or by other circumstances yet they still manage to form bonds with others and still preserve their independence.

In the 12th House – Liberation of dreams. Natives are brilliant and inventive but many times they are hiding this part of themselves. Their dreams may be somehow shocking and even prophetic. Their sleeping patterns may be weird and unstable. Strong inuition They may get their flash of genius through dreaming and see answers they are looking for there. They may also be interested in unusual ways of healing or medicine in general. Occult and hidden knowledge may be something they have an easier access to.

In retrograde – your rebellious, liberated   self may be deeply internalized. On the outside you may appear as someone obedient, always following the rules, never questioning things. The truth is that you are quite rebellious and you have unique perspective of things but you tend to not share it with others. You may also reject this part of yourself and purposely try to conform to the norm because you are too afraid to stand out.

i’m sick of people shaming attraction to men. i’m sick of people acting like the only reason you think you’re attracted to men is because you hate lesbians so much you can’t admit you are one. i’m sick of your queerness/radicalness/feminism being called into question because you’re attracted to men.

i’m exhausted by the fact that bi women/folk have been fighting these fucking stigmas for over forty years & YET people would rather parrot terf rhetoric about all men being Evil and the sole purity of ~wlw~ relationships

that shit is god awful. it breeds toxicity. it breeds abuse. it breeds shame. it breeds doubt. it ruins any attempt at solidarity. it prioritizes monosexuals. it prioritizes cis people. it prioritizes the binary.

and i’m fucking tired of it

This is written for @gallusrostromegalus who is sick and apparently really enjoys chickens, so. Fair warning that you are going to read about my family and chickens. I don’t normally write stories on tumblr, so here’s hoping you enjoy the narrative despite the shoddy storytelling.

To begin, I should start with my mother the Undercover Hippie. I spent a good portion of my childhood thinking my mother was normal because she didn’t dress in tie-dye, but as an adult, I’ve realised there are several things that marked my mother as one of those Boulder Hippies. The types that aren’t really Hippie in the seventies sense, but more in the ‘making questionable health and lifestyle choices because it is the newest Organic Idea going around.’ Notable occasions on this list are the time that she filled the brownies with wheat germ and made them crunchy, the time she brought my east-coast-city-child cousins on a camping trip, and the time she got chickens.

Chickens, in and of themselves, are reasonable things to own. Usually. However, my mother wanted them for eggs and began by taking the childhood fort (which most of us had grown out of) and turning it into a chicken coop. By chicken coop, I mean she stuck some boxes in it and put a fence around it, and patched up the hole in the side from A’s Enthusiastic Ninja Punch, and the hole in the other side from C’s Peephole Experiment, and the last hole from my own childhood Cannonball, and both windows, and then got chickens.

My mother is the sort of learner who just starts a project and then learns as she goes. While she knew they needed food and basic heating, she was otherwise a bit naiive.

For example, it turns out L, my sister, is terrified of chickens. My mother apparently didn’t know this (Mom, I don’t like the idea of chickens) until the chickens (Mom, really, do you think we have to have chickens, because they have beaks, and I got pecked once) actually got to the house (OH MY GOD GET IT AWAY. GET. IT. AWAY. GET IT AWAY GET IT OFF GET IT OFF GET IT OFF!!!!).

Additionally, Mom forgot that chickens can fly short distances and the fort has a loft and thus made the interesting mistake of not wiring off the top areas of the roof.  On Day One she had to knock on the neighbour’s door and ask if she could retrieve her chickens from their yard.

Eventually, after many phone calls, Mom got a handle on chicken care - by which I mean she passed the project onto my chicken-enthusiastic younger brother, who adored them. Not only did Mom have chickens, she had Happy Chickens who were more than pleased to make Many Eggs, and the family chowed down happily.

W, my chicken-enthusiastic younger brother, explained chickens to me this way:

Chickens have a hierarchy, so you have to have a rooster. They’ll start pecking each other and it’s a mess, but roosters kinda keep them calm, though roosters can get aggressive if the hierarchy gets disturbed, so you have to keep the roosters calm. This isn’t really hard, except that if you have to have a rooster, you’ve got a chance of eggs getting fertilised, and we want to eat them, so you have to go out and get the eggs every day, unless you want more chickens, and there’s a limit of how many chickens you can have inside city limits.

All of which seems perfectly reasonable, and was perfectly reasonable, until Mom decided to go on a fortnight’s holiday with my younger brothers, including W.

This left L in charge of the chickens.

Now, my mother is not a reasonable person, so if you’re just now wondering why Mom left the chicken-terrified child in charge of the chickens, it’s because mom is either an idiot or an arse. I’ve still not decided to this day which one she is, so we’ll leave it at that. But regardless of Mom’s motivations, my younger sister is now in charge of the chickens. She can’t get within a few yards before wanting to burst into tears, but also has a Big Heart and doesn’t want the chickens to die.

The chickens need to be fed and watered.

According to W, several things had happened when he got home and took charge of ‘his’ chickens again.

  1. On day one, L had attempted to feed the chickens, and upon entering the coop had been met by the Rooster, who, not recognising her, had immediately gone into Protective Mode. L had fled the coop, dropping the food but leaving the door open. This led to L calling the neighbours in a panic asking for a Group Hunt for the Chickens because she was too terrified to round them up out of the yard. A friendly neighbour put the end of the hose into the water trough so L could just turn it on instead of going in.
  2. L had fed the chickens every day by taking a bucket about the right size full of feed and tossing it into the coop. Not just the feed - the whole bucket. W had to pick up 12 different containers because after L ran out of buckets she just started using old yoghurt containers and whatever else she could find. The chickens apparently didn’t mind being bombed with buckets full of food, just ran out of the way and then attacked the containers until they got their due.
  3. L didn’t fetch the eggs, not even once, which meant that now W was a full eight chicks over the city limit, and had to give six more to some friends in the foothills who weren’t in city limits and could have as many chicks as they wanted. He ended up keeping the eight chicks and bargaining with the neighbours that they could have free eggs, provided that if the city Chicken Inspectors came by, the neighbours would tell the Chicken Inspectors that W was just caring for their chickens while they built a new coop or something.

By the time W, L, A, and my mother left to live in Swaziland (another story altogether), my brother had ten chickens over the limit, all extremely pleased and contented with life, until L went Anywhere Near The Coop, at which point they would all start shrieking like the dickens and running out of the way of any impending Food Bombs, except for the Rooster, who would puff up and start attacking the fence in preparation.

Anyway, the point of this story is Don’t Leave L In Charge Of The Chickens, with side morals of Don’t Buy Pets You’re Not Prepared For and Don’t Fuck With Roosters, and also I hope you feel better.

How do you move? Mars edition. 💃🏾👯‍♂️🤽🏿‍♀️


Mars in the 1st house: angry steps, in your face body movements. When ever they do something you feel it no matter where you are in the room-they’re movements captivate you and cause you to focus on them. They seem aggressive and heavy. Sort of Pushy and loud movements even when they’re not trying. Might make sounds as their doing things and can be easily clumsy and rough with themselves and their surroundings. Ex you know those cashiers that throw your Groceries or clothes like their hunting a pack of gazelles? That’s an Aries mars Maria lmao.


Mars in the 2nd house: sensual and erotic-even if that’s not their intentions their movements can seem very touchy and very earthy in a way-lusty and a gasp for air. They move slow and often times have very bull like movements-they rub things a lot be it their own bodies or their immediate environment and can be very natural dancers(natural rhythm). Their movements are usually slow and sloth like and can at times even seem “paused” in a way. Lethargic and sort of contemplative movements.


Mars in the 3rd house: fast movin-can seem to have a body that moves on its own quicker than the mind can catch up. The hands move more than anything else and the arms are the most self aware. Can seem antsy yet extremely calm all at once and the body operates on a potential energy timeline. Awkward actions. They can seem to fidget a lot with their hands and their movements almost always involve the hands first before anything else.


Mars in the 4th house: crabby movements-side to side-evasive type of gestures. Can always have arms close to the body and move in a self protective manner. Seemingly aloof when they move and hard to read what action they’re going through with. Depending on their emotions their movements are either defensive or passive. Can seem like they have childlike movements or old engrained reactions from childhood. Some can be a bit aggressive when you’re behind them or to close and they don’t know you. Ex don’t walk behind someone from New York :0


Mars in the 5th house: athletic movements-can seem rough and tough in how they move. They cover a room and can be very dominating in how they move especially around others. They’re not the most sensual of movers and can have stiff and almost alpha type movements be it female or male. Like first housers the moments can make everyone look. They don’t actually move in a dramatic way but when they’re upset their movements become more flamboyant and “extra” so to speak. Can swish and have a groove to their strides.


Mars in the 6th house: super calculated movements-everything is mentally processed before you see it in person-be it sex-be it walking out the door-every move seems perfect and absolutely well adjusted. They’re very intune with their bodies and can have an earthy and almost lusty way about how they move-there movements seem like they belong and fit their character. Computerized movements. Their movements shy away from groups and confrontation so at times they can seem evasive.


Mars in the 7th house: loud ass movements aha-surprisingly they have very charming and cute movements-they seem to move like children and have a bubbly and open way of moving one that invites friendliness and receptivity. Their movements always have a warm and easy relaxed expression and present a authentic atmosphere. They move the most around people and can seem eerily non-emotive when alone.


Mars in the 8th house: frankly they have very sexy movements-when they’re moving their bodies move in an almost seductive like and pop and lock type moves. Their movements seem sensual yet unassuming. There’s a mysterious energy to how they move and I just say these are natural dancers-they have a very rhythmic lumbar region and tend to be able to be very agile and naturally able to flick their hips so to speak. Also walk with a sort of side to side sway and can have an animated pelvic movement.


Mars in the 9th house: bouncy and jovial movements! They can seem a little scattered when they move and have an almost two headed approach to what and how they go about doing things-one head may want to go left while the other was still sitting down. Pretty clumsy yet very nomadic type of movements! They move like in a wide horse like way im not even gonna lie it’s cute and it’s kinda sassy! Aha they move like their dancing to invincible music playing in the background and boy are these some groovy cats.


Mars in the 10th house: earthy yet stiff as hell, they can seem very set in one position and don’t often do to much with their bodies unless the situation calls for it. They can be very emotive but mainly in regards to the public. They have an aggressive and almost dogmatic way of moving when it comes to those around them and are big on asserting dominance and control over their surroundings via their actions physically. Their movements can be kinda scary and remind you of a parent in a way.


Mars in the 11th house: cold movements-very intune with their body but the movements can seem as if they weren’t thought of and were more on instinct if anything. They kinda look awkward doing Sexual things not because it’s not in their nature but mainly because their movements seem so disconnected from their sense of self. You see their minds move more than their bodies. There’s a weird mind and body connection loss here and they seem like disconnected in a way when ever they’re moving.


Mars in the 12th house: beautiful movements and movements that seem innocent and almost angelic and nun like-they also look strange doing sexual type movements but can easily seduce those because of how entrancing and mesmerizing their movements are. They move like water and have flow like movements. Those not intune with it can have erratic moments while those intune can seemingly move like a fish in water.

Jupiter, the gift of the gods

Jupiter in Aries: Bravery and participating determinedly in competition. When enthusiastic these individuals will take action out of impulse and had over heels start something new but never lose their true goals. Not afraid to expand their horizon, even though challenges may occure - they will fight. Headstrong nature usually and short tempered, adventure is good for them and like to do work on their own and most likely to not take orders from just anyone.

Jupiter in Taurus: Knows their inner worth, won’t go for anything below their standard usually,  likes prosperity. Patient and will hold on to secure believes/arguments, but ‘realistic’ optimists. Quality before quantity. Need to take their time to adjust to new situations, plans ahead and waits for their future profits. Investement and shares could be something for them. 

Jupiter in Gemini: Differently interested, has no problem to connect everything together/enjoys finding similarities and differences. Gaining knowledge = key, curious characters and highly flexible. Has no problem usually to adjust to different people and situations, new chances always lie ahead (small or big ones) and are usually socially engaged. 

Jupiter in Cancer: People feel comfortable around you, these individuals are needed and love to be needed and to be usueful as well. Give of homey vibes an naturally have a tolerant and friendly side to them which leads to others trusting them easier/easily. Empathetic but not easily fooled because they are emotionally intelligent enough to see through lies (or at least sense them), won’t give their heart warming side to anyone though because they do not like being used or fooled. 

Jupiter in Leo: They feel like the royality themselves or better said are royality themselves. Humorous and creative showing others the way and do not appreciate being understimated/made fun of or just plainly talking when they are speaking. They will take care for anyone who lives in their kingdom and bring of course a theatralic nature to them, joyful and proud they expect a pat on their shoulder, if not? they sure know how to gain respect are make you respect them. Also: a healthy, real self confidence is key. 

Jupiter in Virgo: High standards for themselves and others which can be very benefitting. When interested they will gather all the knowledge there is and aim to be great or perfect at their thematics. Go into detail but won’t lose the main string usually, great teachers and patient people will appreciate their willingness. if not suffering from negative self conciousness they will know the worth of their work. 

Jupiter in Libra: Harmonic and welcoming, good at being with people or handling them well, want to treat everyone equally and correct. Charming and due to that easily gain popularity. Aesthetically pleasing or have a good taste and like to be surrounded by wealth and to live the ‘good life’. Can gain or win chances due to being people smart, but again, being real is essencial. 

Jupiter in Scorpio: Seeks out the truth and will find it, finds magic in the dark. Sees through people and many situations, your sorrow is their sorrow and when confronted with injustice will fight against it harshly. While standing up for others they will find themselves in a position of power: the strength of moderation, restraining oneself and realistic views of others will give you a sense of rightness and what is good for you and others.

Jupiter in Sagittarius: Doubled luck, you arrow shoots right through the cosmos. Expanding makes you lucky, no matter what and how, likes to be in the light and was born to live in it. Searces for something bigger and believes in the cosmos, optimistic nature, believe that karma will help them and the universe will find its ways. Their horizon is endless and strive for wisdom. 

Jupiter in Capricorn: You know which position you would like to have in your preferred society/community and has the dream to be appreciated for their ideas and knowdledge. Disciplined, knows what they are fighting for, persevering and ambitious, they will be adored by many who look up to those power packs. Know how to spend their ressources wisely and plan ahead, proudly they will show what they earned. Same with Taurus, investement and shares  could be something for them. 

Jupiter in Aquarius: Unconventional and love freedom. Their ideas flow like a river through them and always ahead of others. A scheme is nothing for them, character development happens naturally in their freedom and can work with a team but usually gives the ideas. There is a rapid change in their (financial) life situation now and then, but they sure know how to find a way out of it, trust their guts or people in their community. 

Jupiter in Pisces: Universal, cosmic love and their will to help are endless. Their heart is big and are spiritual gifted. Like to gift their loved ones. Idealistic and appreciate love from others. Might seek others out for help when emotionally (financially) in need, their wisdom and potentional is not dependent on others, they need to realize their own great potentional at times, a good word from friends is pure bliss.

The Parts of You by @ladyofpurple
Summary: “I just…” Her hands migrated from covering her face to clutching her hair. Her ears matched her suit but her eyes were glowing with — what was that? Love? Admiration? His chest tightened. “I can’t talk to him! I always get tongue-tied, or say something stupid, or trip over my own feet. It’s so embarrassing! I mean, I’ve gotten better since we first met, like, we’re actually kind of friends now, but it’s kind of a big leap to go from ‘I can sort of string more than two words together in front of you,’ to ‘Please date me, I love you,’ you know?” His breath hitched at the word “love,” but Ladybug didn’t seem to notice. “Plus, it’s not like we’re super-close or anything. I mean,” she tittered nervously, “we’ve known each other for years, but it’s not like talking to you.” If words could have killed him he would have been in his grave.

Meant To Be by @insanitysscribblings

  • He was the popular boy at your school
  • Yet he wasn’t the asshole kind of popular, more like the popular boy who’s lowkey a nerd
  • His hair was always in those kind of curls,some of them were falling on his face somtimes, which made him to push them away every now and then (oh way god you know that video were he pushes his hair back?? I’m dead)
  • Since the first time you saw him walking through the hallway
  • You immediately crushed in him
  • But you surely weren’t the only one
  • Basically every girl would love to even have his attention for themselves
  • Even if it would only be for a few second
  • Eventually, you’d have some classes with him
  • Today was Thursday
  • First class of the day: physics
  • You adored physics
  • When you were younger you kind of had some problems with it
  • You always had to have a clear picture in your head to actually understand it
  • But now, you immediately get what the teacher is talking about
  • Electromagnetism
  • One of the most easiest topics in physics
  • While the teacher was explaining everything, you took some notes
  • Some notes aka almost an entire page
  • The teacher was in the middle of explaining when the door suddenly opened

 

  • “I’m so sorry for being late. I had to talk to the principal about something very important.”
  • Tom
  • Your heart started beating a little bit faster
  • “I’ve been informed Mr. Holland, please take a seat. I’m sure one of your classmates will tell you what we’ve been doing.”
  • He nodded, looking around for a place to sit
  • There was one seat left and that was next to Y/N
  • Aka the girl he had a massive crush on
  • He loved how she feather hid behind a book than listening to the gossip all the other girls are talking about
  • She was good at school, some people even called her a nerd
  • It seemed like she never let anything negative get too much of her attention
  • But sometimes, even if it would be for a few seconds, he saw the sadness in her eyes
  • “Hey, do you mind if I sit next to you?“
  • „Uh-uhm.. no, absolutely not.“
  • Oh god why did you have to stutter in the most important moments??
  • Big little did you know that he was as nervous as you were
  • His heart was beating so fast,he was afraid that you could hear it
  • „Can I,uhm, have a look on your notes.“
  • „S-sure.“
  • B L U S H I N G
  • Like from the both of you (a lot of it)
  • After some time he mumbled something
  • „Oh god…“
  • „You’re alright?“
  • „Well, actually.. no I don’t really get this if I’m being honest.”
  • That was the chance you’ve been waiting for
  • “Uhm, do you want me to teach you? This topics of one of my favorites and I could try teaching you.”
  • “You would?!”
  • Loverboys eyes would widen at the words you were saying
  • “Yeah, when are you free?”
  • “Actually, today would be fine with me.”
  • “Alright,uhm.. where?”
  • “My place?”
  • Oh my god is this really happening???
  • Is the Tom Holland asking you to come over??
  • He looked at you with a waiting look on his face
  • “Yeah, alright I’ll be the around six if that’s okay with you?”
  • “Sure, yeah. Uhm I’ll see you later Y/N!”
  • “See you later Tom.”
  • As both of your ways separated you from each other, your thoughts didn’t
  • Both of you would have massive smiles on your faces, hearts still beating fast
  • After school you rushed home, still full of excitement
  • “Y/N, Darling, how is your day going so far?“
  • „Very good mother, how about yours?“
  • „ Quite relaxing, which is always nice.“
  • You made your way to the stairs, up to your room, when you stopped, turned around and said
  • „I’m going to Toms place later. I am going to help him with physics.“
  • You gained a surprised but happy look from your mum
  • „Oh darling that’s lovely! I’ve heard nothing but good things about him.“
  • Smiling to yourself, you went up to your room
  • “Mum? I’m leaving now.”
  • “Alright love, have fun. Please be home before 12 am!”
  • “Alright,will do mother.”
  • Tom only lived two streets away from you, so you didn’t have to walk far
  • As soon as you rang the doorbell, of the cute house of the Holland household, you heard some voices shouting
  • “Harry, for christ sake, don’t embarrass me in front of her!”
  • You blushed, trying to hide your face in your turtleneck sweater
  • „Y/N! Hi, come in please.“
  • Stepping into the house, you were welcomed with a staffy running up to you, trying to get your full attention
  • „Tessa, down! Sorry she’s usually not that friendly to strangers, she must really like you.”
  • “Well I have to say that she’s one of the cutest dogs I’ve ever seen.”
  • As if she understood what you were saying, she started rubbing her head on your leg
  • After some time cuddling Tessa, you made your way up to Toms room
  • In it, you found a record player, a typewriter and lots of books
  • „Have you read all of these?“
  • „Most of them, yeah. I quite like escaping into another world through them..“
  • You just stared at him,which made him worry a little bit
  • „Sorry, i probably shouldn’t have said that I-“
  • „No, I just couldn’t believe that you’re just like I imagined you.“
  • Realizing that you just said that out loud, you started looking through some papers, trying to hide your burning cheeks
  • „So, uhm, wanna start?”
  • Y-yeah, of course, sure!”
  • While you were explaining, you caught him staring at you a few times
  • “Do I have something on my face?”
  • He immediately started blushing awwww
  • “No, I,uhm, sorry. I just think you’re really pretty.”
  • Did this just happened?
  • Did he actually just said that to you??
  • You just stared at him, not being able to react to his spoken words
  • Tom didn’t knew what he was doing or thinking
  • He just leaned in, looking you into your eyes, licking is lips
  • You started to feel your heart beating fast again
  • Now he was incredibly close to you, you felt his breath tingling in your lips
  • Very shyly you both closed the space that was left between your lips, finally connecting them
  • Sparks exploded in both of your bodies and you couldn’t think straight
  • The feeling that you both had right now, in that very moment
  • You both never wanted to end it
  • Tom put one of his hands on your waist pulling you closer to him
  • The other one cupped your cheek
  • You rested yours on his arm and neck
  • Throughout the entire kiss there was no pressure, just gentle and loving movements
  • Even though you both didn’t want to, you pulled away to catch some breath
  • He was looking at you, nothing but love and admiration in his eyes
  • “Wow.”
  • Since you didn’t know what to say, you gave him a wide smile

 

  • “You know, I only asked you to help me study to get to spend some time with you.”
  • “Oh, I figured after I saw your test laying on your desk.”
  • He turned around to find a test with the Title “Electromagnetism” and an “a” on the bottom of it
  • “I knew I forgot to put something away.”
  • “Next time,you could just ask me on a date.”
  • “So there will be a second one?”
  • “Depends if you ask me or not.”
  • “Oh I definitely will but before that, I would have to finish something.”
  • And with that he put his lips on your, causing the both of you feel that amazing feeling, you couldn’t explain


Tell me if you want a part 2!

I think that something we as vegans need to work on doing a little better is advocating with the knowledge in mind that eating animals isn’t the stopping point; it’s not the cause. The fact that we eat animals is symptomatic of the way we think about them, it is that thinking we have to challenge, not just the act which follows it. The way we think about animals allows us to oppress them, so it is our thinking which needs to be change rather than just our behaviour.

This is why the approach of encouraging people to stop eating animals purely for health or environmental reasons is flawed. If we don’t challenge speciesism and our fundamental conception of the value of animals, then those who went vegan for health or the environment will stop as soon as they find a healthier, more environmentally friendly way to exploit them. Any vegan activism which doesn’t include advocating for the fundamental rights of animals is incomplete.

You know, if anyone can come up with a good reason to hate Joker/Harley other than the fact that it’s abusive or that Ivy “isn’t abusive” (or some other related argument), then I will gladly hear you out.

For the record, any arguments why Ivy/Harley should be a thing instead of Joker/Harley are invalid. I wanna know reasons why Joker/Harley shouldn’t be a thing.

EDIT: I’m not trying to say the fact that it’s abusive isn’t a good reason. But for the shippers who knows that it is indeed abusive and DO NOT condone that abuse, it’d be nice to not be lectured on something that we are completely aware of.
