not the point of this post ok

Ok I know that Purple Prose AU was a thing ages ago but consider this:

  • Mikleo arguing in the comments of the articles with everyone who insist that the relationship between Grand Seraph Mikleo and Shepard Sorey was purely platonic and no I’m not 14-year-old fangirl I’M THE GRAND SERAPH
  • Mikleo posting his own selfies to prove the point
  • Mikleo angrily writing replies at 2am
  • “Uh, I don’t think you have enough education to-” “EXCUSE ME?!”
  • “But, according to ‘The Shepard As He Was’ by Edward Kasum…” “Don’t.“
  • “Mikleo, I think you may have a problem…” “Sorey, I don’t have a problem, they have a problem and I’m going to fix this right now-”

Taeil would notice your tendency quite quickly and would try to make you blush as much as he could without making it too obvious lmfao ok. He wouldn’t point it out, he wouldn’t tease you about it nor would he try to embarrass you; but very quickly, he’d notice how easy it was to make you blush and what kind of things would start you off. Like Taeyong, it’d make him feel really good in your relationship, as if he was doing something right and it was working. He’d watch you dotingly, a small smile playing on his lips, as you hid your face in your hands and turned beet red. It would get to the point where he literally couldn’t help but make you blush all the time, especially if he starting singing and serenading you. Sometimes, if you were blushing over something like other people telling you how lucky you were to have Taeil as a boyfriend, or how well he could sing basically blushing over other people gushing over Taeil lol idk it I made it clear enough, he’d coo and pinch your cheeks, finding it adorable about how you reacted. It’d also be very confidence-boosting for Taeil that you only blushed at his words and his compliments and his actions, not anyone else’s - he’d feel quite special.


Johnny:

Probably the member to tease you the most about this lmfao johnny y r u so mean :(( jks. He’d laugh and point out your blushing cheeks, asking whether or not they were because of him. It’d only make you blush even harder, covering your face with your hands as you tried to hide your cheeks. He’d mimic your protests and defences, flapping his hands about frantically and putting on a silly voice. He’d tease you and imitate you in the moment, but later on when he’s alone, or in times where you weren’t together because of his schedule, he’d think back to moments like these and appreciate them. Eventually you’d both calm down eventually, him reassuring you that he was only teasing and didn’t mean it. But he’d definitely start bringing it up randomly throughout the rest of the day, just to make you blush and stutter again. Being the big masculine guy he is lmfao who am I kidding?, he wouldn’t tell you, or anyone in fact, this, but he’d really like how you blush easily. Not because it gave him an excuse to tease you, but because it just meant you really really liked loved him, and he’d really appreciate that.


Taeyong:

Originally posted by taeyongworld

I’m honestly unsure on how Taeyong would be like in a relationship in the first place. On the one hand, he might be able to confide and trust in his significant other easily, opening up to them and being very affectionate and loving. But I also see him as finding communication in your relationship hard, so sometimes he’d close himself off instinctively and distance himself, unsure of his affections and compliments. So, he might react to an easily-blushy S/O in different ways. He might find it a reassuring sign, something that’d boost his self confidence a bit and make him feel special. He wouldn’t tease you like some of the other members, but if you were around them at the same time and they caught you both blushing, there wouldn’t be an end to their teasing (for both of you too lol). He’d blush along too, biting his lip subconsciously and giggling at you. His other reaction might be that he finds it quite awkward and not really have a reaction. If it were early in your relationship, he’d find it even more awkward, not knowing how to react or what to do or say. It’d look like he didn’t care or didn’t like it, but really, he would - he would just be unsure on how to react without making things awkward or doing something stupid.


Yuta:

He’d spot the colour change your face even before you noticed yourself. Smirking to himself, he’d compliment you just a little bit more, giggling at your hushed thank-you’s and smiles. Eventually, he’d just have to do something to tease you though, leaning down closer to you so his face was only a few inches away. He’d stare at you lovingly, watching as you looked down and your sweaty palms. His hands would cup your cheeks, but quickly retreat as he hissed, blowing cool air on his hands. “Ahhh! Y/N! Why are you cheeks burning so hot? I nearly burnt myself!” He’d tease you playfully, acting as if his hands were actually burnt from touching your skin. You’d gawp back at him, hitting him on his shoulder lightly, rolling your eyes annoyingly but still smiling. He’d laugh, head thrown back, enjoying how you played along and weren’t offended, before bringing you into a tight hug and swaying you from side to side squealing with laughter. His reaction would honestly be so cute and fluffy and he wouldn’t be able to help but fuss and gush over you.


Doyoung:

Originally posted by dovounq

At first, Doyoung wouldn’t even realise it was blushing. He’d honestly think you were sick or something, looking at you weirdly when you blushed after literally everything he said. He’d be just telling you how he’s proud of the work you’ve been doing for college, praising your writing and hard work, when you started blushing furiously. Doyoung always had a way with words that made them feel more genuine and sincere than anyone else could. But he’d be oblivious of his effect over you, not thinking that his words could make you feel those kinds of things. Raising an eyebrow suspiciously, he’d stop talking and would place the back of his hand on your forehead to check if you had a fever or were ill. “Are you alright, Y/N? Why are you so red?” He’d laugh awkwardly; for once, he wouldn’t actually understand what was going on. You’d hum a reply of reassurance, but your face would only turn pinker at his touch. Eventually, it’d click and he’d realise what was going on. It’d be a little awkward, him looking away from you quietly in thought. Yeah he’d find you cute, but he wouldn’t be able to see the signs and would feel bad for it (honestly it’d always end up like this, but he’d get over it quickly and it wouldn’t feel awkward anymore :) )


Jaehyun:

Originally posted by jihansoul94

Honestly, he’d find it really hard not to blush too, but would try to contain them just to look cool and chill about it. He’d be a little cocky about it, boasting about it to his members and trying to make them jealous about it. In the moment, he’d want to blush and be flustered too, but would hold back and try to make the most of the situation. He wouldn’t tease you but would just keep trying to make you blush. Playing with your hair, complimenting your clothes, holding your hand and kissing your cheek innocently, were all ways he tried to make you blush, all of which, succeed. Eventually, I think he’d get too embarrassed and wouldn’t be able to hold back in shyness and blushes, so would bury his face into your neck and blushing deeply. This’d only make you blush harder too, gasping suddenly the swift action and skin contact. There’d be a lot of giggling and teasing, and very playful; it’d always end up like this too, no matter how hard he tried to not let his guard down.  


WinWin:

Originally posted by blackgirlslovebts

Sicheng would be the type to apologise every time he made you blush. He’d blush along too, and probably accidentally make the situation more awkward than it had to be. I don’t think he would really know how to act or what to say to make things better, but everything he did try would be genuine and sincere. He’d be quite flustered and probably blush harder and a deeper shade of pink than you! You’d kind of have to take the initiative in these kind of situations and change the conversation subject or something. If you were around other people, the members in particular, the situation would be a little different. WinWin would probably say something quite sassy and sarcastic if anyone started teasing you for your easily flustered state. He’d be jealous if anyone else other than himself managed to make you blush; it’d probably be the only times where he’d get jealous in general too. Deciding to grab your attention and affection, he’d become very clingy and affectionate, which wouldn’t help the situation and only make you, and him, blush even more and even harder.


Mark:

Originally posted by nct-marklee

He’d be a lot like Doyoung, finding your easily initiated blushes weird and worrying. Although he’d absolutely love it when you blushed at his compliments or touches, he’d be confused and worried when it started happening all the time. Honestly, he’d feel a little bit insulted and offended. You’d not only blush at his words, but also the words of other people including his members. It’d make him doubt your relationship momentarily before he knocked some sense into himself and told himself not to think like that. However, when it got into the further months of your relationship and you were still blushing so easily and frequently like that, he’d be irritated. He’d think that his words and compliments no longer had an effect on you and things that were supposed to be more heartfelt and sincere, were just getting the same usual reaction from you as the smaller gestures did. Why were you still so sensitive and easily flushed this far into your relationship? He’d confront you about this maturely, asking if you were uncomfortable with him or if there was something going on. After a few words of reassurance and explaining how it was literally just something you instinctively did, he’d feel more relaxed and comfortable about it (and be able to enjoy your blushing more too!)


Haechan:

Originally posted by dovounq

Contrary to what a lot of people would write him to be like, Haechan would find your blushing state infectious and would quickly flush bright pink whenever you blushed. He’s still really young and would be a little shy in your relationship when it came to the cutesy-sickly-romantic-stuff-that-couples-just-have-to-so. Especially if another member pointed out your blushing, he’d find it hard to not blush too. He’d never use it against you like some of the other members though. Sure, he’d tease you a lot about a lot of things, but never about you blushing. It’d be something he actually rather liked, although you might find it in embarrassing; it’d make your relationship so easily romantic and cute and adorable, which would be something he’d worry about being “bad” at sometimes.

@Star Wars fandom

Ok shippers and fans of all stripes this is bugging me more than I thought it would. I’m getting a few questions about why I’m raising some concerns about Rose being cropped out of the Vanity Fair photo in favor of FinnPoe and why is it a big deal, who cares?

The thing is the fandom decided a long time ago that this sort of manip, particularly when done with characters of color, was not alright. Yet some of the same sectors that were most insistent upon this point are doing the same thing they once criticized but with Rose. So what gives?

Look, I’m just trying to get to the bottom of this. We need to choose: either it’s all ok or none of it is. Let’s decide.

Either it’s ok to manip/crop Finn or John out to make a Reylo post and it’s ok to manip/crop Rose out to make StormPilot post and it’s ok to manip/crop Kylo out to make a Finnrey post and yada yada yada so on and so forth.

Or none of that’s ok and we stick by that.

We’re either cool with it no matter what side of the shipping aisle we occupy or we’re not. Because otherwise these confusing double standards and arbitrarily applied rules creates needless drama and resentment. So please decide.

Anyone can chime in on this, just please be respectful.

anonymous asked:

thanks for contributing to the idea that people with bpd are abusive i guess. fuck those who don't have the privilege of having a mild form and no matter how hard they try to be "good" they will experience paranoia and are shamed for it

oh my fucking god. is this a joke. ive been hospitalized multiple times and have been in DBT for 2 years. im holding people accountable for their abusive actions. never did i say ppl w bpd are abusive. I HAVE BPD and my symptoms have caused me to treat people like shit and it was this hellsite that made me think it was ok. EXPECTING SOMEONE TO HAVE NO LIFE OUTSIDE OF U IS ABUSIVE!!! IDC WHAT UR DIAGNOSIS IS!!

the reason that post is so important to me is bc i fully believed that at one point but am recovering and dont want that to be dismissed as being “neurotypical” its learning to better myself and recover and treat people properly and not fucking abuse them

stop being a piece of shit and learn that you are contributing to “its ok to abusive ppl if ur mentally ill” and “recovering and learning healthy behaviors are neurotypical” rhetoric which is literally what ruined my fucking life and made me hurt a lot of people. and shut the fuck up you dont know me at all, i was abused and this excusing abusive shit was used constantly so this is a sensitive topic as it should be. mental illness explains behavior but it wont ever excuse it. grow up

Hello, i am a big fan of rocks and always have been, however i have not had any opportunities to learn much about them much less collect them until now. I used to cut stone pictures from national geographic magazines hehe 😄. So at this point I don't have a clue where to start 😞 I live in Albania (it's ok if u don't much about it - we r a smol country)

Honestly if you are wanting to find out more about minerals from your country, i would just hop on google. 

I did a quick search for minerals by locality and found THIS.

There is a wealth of information out there, if you’re just wanting to browse through some gorgeous specimens we have a post HERE with a great list of sites, some sites have better info than others, but all have pretty rocks!

but I don’t think maggie will ever convert to Judaism but she will be the most supportive non Jewish wife ever and will be totally ok raising their kids Jewish I think it’s my choice I choose you (via @drlinkatz​ on this post)

Yeah I don’t think Maggie would convert but I also don’t think Sydney would even ask her at this point, like it’s pretty clear that Sydney’s relationship with her religion has changed drastically between s3 and s4. Even in 3x18 Zach notices that she’s wearing shorter skirts and she’s definitely changed the way she dresses by the time she comes back in s4. The decision to work in Tel Aviv is pretty telling; Tel Aviv isn’t exactly the center of Jewish religious life in Israel, it’s most known for being the cultural center of secular life.

Sydney’s clearly always going to have a strong connection to her Judaism, but she’s also clearly become more comfortable choosing what that connection is going to be as she learns more about herself. That’s one of the things I appreciate most about her character development. Her Judaism evolves without it ever seeming like she’s giving something up.

reblog this 4.0 gpa for good luck on all of your finals

i see the word manipulation get thrown around a lot in the bpd community and while thats understandable i just wanted to give you all a small reminder

 

things that ARE manipulation are things like
  • never accepting responsibility for hurting others
  • guilt tripping others to get what you want
  • harassing others for not agreeing with you
  • intentionally diminishing other’s problems/difficulties by comparing them to your own
  • using other’s insecurities against them
things that are NOT manipulation include
  • expressing negative emotions to someone when you are hurt or distressed
  • not expressing emotions for the fear of bothering others
  • disagreeing with others and explaining your side of things
  • expressing your needs to those close to you
  • not socializing due to lack of energy or spoons

 

unhealthy behaviors (such as bottling things up, ignoring your problems, etc) definitely make situations harder and are things that need to be worked on asap, but unhealthy behaviors are not automatically manipulative just because someone has bpd

 

throwing around the wrong words can be extremely counter productive in this community, especially when there is already so much stigma and misunderstanding surrounding this disorder (not to mention that carelessly calling people manipulative and/or abusive for small things can end up devaluing what abuse and manipulation really mean)

 

TLDR; do your research and get to know the actual meaning of strong words before using them - words like ‘manipulation’ or ‘abuse’ are not for you to take lightly and use against people you just disagree or have a problem with

Ok guys, major nerd-out post here regarding Shiro's arm!

As a student in their 4th year of undergrad for a degree in prosthetics, I’m absolutely SMITTEN with Shiro’s bionic arm (and the guy it’s attached to, obviously). But as much as I adore all the art and fics, there are a few things that are driving me nuts that I’d like to share in a few points here, just for reference if anyone wants it. I’ve seen very few fanworks with a proper presentation of artificial limbs, so here goes! 

 #1. Under NO circumstances does anyone sleep with their prosthetic limb on. 

You read that right: under NO circumstances! This also goes for taking a shower. It might look sexy until you get shocked with however many volts he’s got in that thing, But even if it’s waterproof, what is the purpose?? of having it in the shower? when your supposed to be washing the residual limb as well??

“But Wait!” I hear someone say. “Isn’t it implied that Shiro’s arm is permanently attached somehow, and he can’t or doesn’t know how to take it off?”

To answer your question, yes, it is implied. And I’m here to tell you how that is ABSOLUTELY NOT POSSIBLE.

How Taylor Swift Played The Victim For A Decade And Made Her Entire Career

Ok, so Buzzfeed released this article about Taylor Swift on January 31st and here are some key points that really stood up for me. 

  1. On Taylor´s feminism: “But, as the Washington Post pointed out: “There’s a difference between being a feminist and calling yourself a feminist. Feminism is more than just supporting your girlfriends or churning out charming catchphrases about girl power; it’s a political movement, with political aims.”
  2. About Taylor´s squad: And, in actuality, her squad flouts inclusive feminist principles by being an exclusive club, and skews overwhelmingly white, slim, and heterosexual – and this is because Swift views feminism in relation to her own personal experience alone.
  3. Again on Taylor´s feminism: Far from expressing feminist values through actual, tangible means – such as, for example, speaking publicly about Kesha’s alleged sexual assault, offering an opinion on Trump’s campaign and election, or acknowledging the Women’s March through means other than a contrived tweet – Swift invokes feminism to ensure her posture as victim.
  4. On her feud with Katy Perry and the Bad Blood song: Put differently, she prevented the eruption of an undesirable rumour by creating a new one, which reveals Swift’s true genius: her ability to manipulate the lyrics and subjects of her songs in whichever way best suits her PR desires.
  5. On her feud with Nicki Minaj and the lack of recognition for black women in the music industry: Swift has become such an expert at building narratives that she doesn’t just see herself as the victim in stories explicitly about her, but the subject of every story. (…) She prioritised herself at the centre of a struggle faced by women of colour, while ignoring the fact that the system inherently benefits her.
  6. On the feud with Kim and Kanye about that line in Famous: The feud exposed the truth that white fragility is the most imperative component of Swift’s success. Performing white female melodrama has enabled Swift to establish her posture as victim and navigate any conflict with ease, devoid of culpability. But her conflict with West cannot be dismissed as an insignificant celebrity feud, leaving a trail of snake emojis in its wake – there are sinister undertones. It proved that Swift recognised the power her white womanhood affords her – presumed innocence and empathy – and used this to her advantage in repeated acts that she surely knew would damage West’s reputation and strengthen her own. Swift propagating this narrative of fragile white womanhood to villainise a black man is “ruthless” at best, and at worst, dangerous.


I think this article really explains why I don’t really like Taylor Swift and how her playing the role of the victim is really getting old and overused. No one believes she´s the victim and this has been shown ever since the ¨break up¨ with Harry Styles and overusing that one month relationship for over two years. And it became evident to the public how fake she really is with the Kanye and Kim feud and directly after that the whole deal with her ¨relationship¨ with Tom Hiddleston. So I finish this with the final paragraph of the article which summarizes my feelings in general about her. 


She’s all about narratives, and the reinvention of her image is the start of a new one. The question is, however, after being exposed playing the victim in plain sight for over a decade, will anyone believe it?

Not really in the mood for ecchi mangas rn but I’m bored af, let’s see how bad this is gonna be-
