not treated equally

What makes the Ultramarines special

Roboute Guilliman did not want to be a famous warlord. To him, war was simply a means to an end. He wanted to raise up a great Empire where all citizens were treated equally. Where there existed a society based on the core principles of meritocracy and continuous progress to an ever brighter future. Bigger cities, a growing populace, new advances in technology, ever-higher standards of living for the citizens, exploration and colonization of the galaxy. This is what he wanted: civilization.

Make no mistake, I’m not saying that this approach is entirely moral either. Unlike the Salamanders, the Ultramarines would graciously accept horrendous civilian casualties if it meant achieving a higher strategic objective. For example, Uriel Ventris, Captain of the 4th Company of the Ultramarines was willing to subject an entire planet to biological and nuclear weaponry just to protect the borders of Ultramar from the merest hint of Tau activity.


In fact, the Ultramarines would have gladly put every single man, woman and child in an entire sector to the sword if they deemed it was for the greater good. They would commit acts of savagery that would be on par with the Night Lords if Roboute Guilliman convinced them that this would help advance their cause.

The don’t fight for the common citizenry of the Imperium (like the Salamanders). They don’t fight to repent and bring redemption to the name of the primarch (like the Dark Angels). They don’t fight for honor (like the Space Wolves).

No, they fight to achieve the dream of their Primarch. The ancient human dream of civilization.

@ultramarineblues @nightshade-victorian @sisterofsilence My amateur attempt at philosophy. Lemme know what you think :3

Hi! I'm a Gryffindor with a question. It's said Hufflepuffs value fair play, but Gryffindor seems to value justice. What's the difference between the two? I am strictly a believer of all of society's people deserving of protection of hate and prejudice, but will support consequences of any of their poor actions.

I think the best way I can put it is that Hufflepuff wants for everyone to be treated equally and thus crimes be punished by consistent fair methods, but Gryffindor wants jerks to get punched in the face.

A lot of times, the legitimate thought out punishment for a crime doesn’t seem to carry the weight that a good ol’ swift kick in the ass will. And a Gryffindor who has been wronged is more likely to want to be able to enact justice upon the one who wronged them, whereas, from what I have seen, a Hufflepuff is more likely to trust the system to take care of doling out a fair punishment (unless the system needs work, then they are likely to want to fix the system so that it does actually bring wrongdoers to justice)

”Hope the whole “Yuri is Russia’s fairy” deal ends with that performance …”

He knew Yuri well enough to officially state that the younger male was NO WHERE merely soft, elegant and “angelic”. He’s far more than that for sure.

anonymous asked:

I just read that a movie theater (can't remember where) has announced it will be holding special women-only screenings of "Wonder Woman." :/

I’m looking it up now. It’s so stupid. Polygon reported on it saying it’s a “celebration” to have female-only screenings. How though? How do you bring people together, by pulling them apart? It’s basically saying “we’re celebrating equality by treating only one group special!” I know it’s only one theater chain doing this, but it’s honestly such a backwards mentality. You want people to embrace female superheroes by putting this one on an impossibly high pedestal and alienating part of the community? “I want people in the comic book community to embrace women as equals! That’s why we’re banning a large demographic of people in the community from seeing the film!” Because that works every time. Basic logic is all you really need here to say that this idea is counter-intuitive.

Then they go into saying how the reactions from fans isn’t unexpected. Well, yeah, no duh. How do you expect people (not just men, like they say in the article) to feel when you claim to want women to be included, but proceed to cordon them off within velvet ropes, treating them more unique than everyone else. Imagine if you were at a party and a group of people claimed “hey! we want to be treated like everyone else, okay?” and then proceeded to get special treatment. Would you then treat them as equals? I don’t think so.

anonymous asked:

I agree wholeheartedly with your opinion about malec spoilers. And also in your tags about the show understanding the real reason for the fandom getting pissed at 2x07? We actually want equal treatment of scenes for Malec as a couple. I mean what's wrong with holding hands and casual pecks on lips? I take peck on cheeks too cause we never got that.

THIS! Like… I really don’t wanna start this discussion again (and this is my last word regarding this matter for now) because what’s done is done but if they just had the guts to say yes, we made a mistake and yes, we will change this and treat them equally in 2b, there would never be such a long uproar for a start and people still being so salty and petty about 2b. 

Unpopular opinion time
  • Cisgender people aren’t automatically transphobic just because they’re cis.
  • White people aren’t automatically racist because they’re white.
  • Men aren’t automatically misogynistic, rapists or abusers, just because they’re men.
  • Everyone can be racist to everyone else of a different race. Reverse racism doesn’t exist, it’s just racism, everyone is capable of it.
  • Anyone who lies about rape accusations should receive prison time.
  • Everyone is entitled to a proper course of justice in the court of law.
  • Transgender men should be put in men’s prisons, transgender women should be put in women’s prisons.
  • Women can be abusive to their partners. Do not automatically victimise women or say “this motive means that the man deserved it” are you fucked in the head?
  • People who are incapable of looking after their child should not receive custody over the other parent.
  • Feminism is great. Everyone deserves equality, and the proper precautions should be put in place at demonstrations. However, extreme feminism is not great. It gives feminism a bad name. If you go out there shouting “MEN ARE PIGS!” “MEN DESERVE TO DIE!” and all that bullshit, you’re a fucking moron.
  • Transpecies and transrace are not things. You cannot be cat, or a horse or a fucking bunny rabbit. You cannot be black, or Asian or anything else to the race you were born. I’m sorry, but it’s true. Go ahead and call me transphobic (even though I’m not)
  • The amount of genders and sexualities that Tumblr is creating is fucking ridiculous. “Angeligender– A gender found only among angels, that is hard to describe to non-angels. For godkin and angelkin only.” “Lichtgender- A gender represented by a ball of light.” “Zodiacgender– A catch-all gender term that is used to describe when one’s gender is related to a (or their specific) zodiac sign.” I’m sorry, what?? What the fuck? No.
  • There is not 76 fucking genders. Fuck off.
  • If you are transgender male and deliberately present as female, or transgender female and deliberately present as male, and then complain that someone misgendered you, that’s your fault, nobody else’s.
  • NON-BINARY, GENDERFLUID AND AGENDER PEOPLE ARE ENTITLED TO HAVE THEY/THEM PRONOUNS USED TO IDENTIFY THEM.
  • If you are 13 and your boyfriend is 20, I’m sorry, but he’s a paedophile. “Age is just a number” yeah, then prison is just a room.
  • Stalking celebrities to a point where you find out where they live is NOT okay. Stop being a creepy little weirdo and play outside or some shit.
  • You are not edgy because you hate people. You are not edgy for self-diagnosing mental health issues. You are not edgy for self-diagnosing other medical issues. You’re a twat.
What The Signs Will Teach You

ARIES: they will teach you to stand up for yourself, even if you risk to be misunderstood

TAURUS: they will teach you to never lose your dignity, no matter how hurt you are, to always get away with grace and to never dumb yourself down for anyone

GEMINI: they will teach you to laugh when you’re not even in the mood to smile because people don’t need to see everything you feel

CANCER: they will teach you to love unconditionally, with every corner of your heart, not expecting anything in return

LEO: they will teach you to appreciate yourself, to know your own value, to accept your flaws

VIRGO: they will teach you to stay honest and pure in this dirty world full of liars

LIBRA: they will teach you to treat everyone equally, to love everyone, just because all the people are unique

SCORPIO: they will teach you to be passionate about everything you do

SAGITTARIUS: they will teach you to believe in yourself above everyone else, to fight for your dreams, not expecting help from anyone

CAPRICORN: they will teach you that loyalty pays itself off, either in love, in hard work or in waiting for something you want, that everything will always be okay in the end, as long as you don’t give up on what you really need

AQUARIUS: they will teach you to show off your imperfections since they are all that makes you who you are

PISCES: they will show you how far the human imagination can go 

Statements that shouldn't be controversial but are because tumblr is fucked up:

“Pedophillia is bad”

“Skin color largely doesn’t determine how someone is as a person”

“Violence against people for political reasons is messed up”

“Terrorism, in any form, is never justified”

“Shoplifting is bad”

“Men and women deserve to be treated equally under the law”

“Abuse, no matter who the perpetrator is or who the victim is, is never justified”

“Racism is bad, no matter what race it’s against”

“You can be friends with someone of differing political views”

US Department of Justice is prosecuting a woman for laughing at Jeff Sessions

  • The US Department of Justice moved forward this week with pursuing charges against a 61-year-old woman who laughed at Jeff Sessions. 
  • Seriously, that’s her alleged crime, laughing, and the prosecution is being carried out by the very department Sessions now oversees.
  • On Jan. 10, during Jeff Sessions confirmation hearing, Desiree Fairooz, an activist affiliated with the group Code Pink, heartily chuckled when Sen. Richard Shelby (R-Ala.) said that Sessions’ record of “treating all Americans equally under the law is clear and well-documented,” according to the Huffington Post.
  • If she is convicted, Fairooz faces a fine up to $500 and up to six months in prison for the laugh-related charge. Read more (5/2/17 7:30 PM)
Rising signs personalities

Aries rising / Aries ascendant

This is a very direct, quick to anger person. You might catch this person doing the most cursing at drivers on the way to work in rush hour traffic. Then once they arrive is cool as a fan and friendly with their coworkers.  Remember, Aries ascendants have Libra on their descendant. Their Venus rules their house of  interpersonal relationships. A Libra individual may help balance you in relationships very well provided chart and personality compatibility.

The passion of this rising sign may throw folks off if their Sun sign and features reflect a Taurus, or Libra who have a softer, less intense, more amiable appearance and features.

Taurus rising / Taurus ascendant

This is a very calm and easy going rising sign. These people don’t come off as very intense or aggressive. They appear to have a slow boiling huffing and puffing anger, like a bull,  from a distance. Their descendant is Scorpio so, this easy going nature really has an intensity and passion when dealing with loved ones. A Scorpio individual may help balance you in relationships very well provided chart and personality compatibility.

A square jaw and wide grin with shiny white teeth could mislead folks if this person is a double Leo or double Sagittarius for example. They don’t know that this tamed bull is really a wild animal behind the veneer.

Gemini rising / Gemini ascendant

This is one inquisitive rising sign. This is the person who while riding the bus or the subway is talking to the person sitting or standing next to them making small talk. They want to understand other people to build their own  understanding of themselves. Sagittarius is on their descendant, their relationships may appear to be odd to friends. Dating someone who appears to not be compatible. A Sagittarius individual may help balance you in relationships very well provided chart and personality compatibility.

This can be a confusing ascendant for someone who is a double Pisces for instance. These mental exercises of human interaction can be exhausting and cause them to retreat into isolation. People who knew them as this chatterbox person has to learn to accept who this person is.

Cancer rising / Cancer ascendant

This is a cagey rising sign. Water signs are known as “mute” signs. This  rising sign might go about its business without saying a single word. But if you look at their expressive eyes you will be able to read into what they’re thinking. Capricorn on their descendant shows an interest in older partners, partners who are established. A Capricorn individual may help balance you in relationships very well provided chart and personality compatibility.

This person may be the quietest and then loudest person you’ll ever know if they have masculine signs as their Sun and/or moon and they know you well.

Leo rising / Leo ascendant

This rising sign wants to be seen and heard. They want you to know how they’re doing even if you don’t really want to know and tell them that. Their confidence and ego is worn on their sleeve. With Aquarius on their descendant they are actually very concerned with making and maintaining friendships. An Aquarius individual may help balance you in relationships very well provided chart and personality compatibility.

Once you get to know them, that confident nature might prove to be a show if their Sun and/or Moon are feminine signs.

Virgo rising / Virgo ascendant

This is the person who tries to do everything, it may look like they are frantically moving around in a rush doing 10 things at once. Fidgeting with their phone, their coffee, their cigarette. They see everything wrong with the way the diner they grab breakfast from was remodeled. Virgo rising has Pisces on the descendant, so their really is a sympathetic side they have for loved ones. A Pisces individual may help balance you in relationships very well provided chart and personality compatibility.

If you can make it past the barrage of questions , critiques and occasional meltdowns , and become a friend or more they may be very calm and easy going.

Libra rising / Libra ascendant

Libra risings will have a smile  for everyone they come across moving to and from. This person is amiable and knows their manners and how to make others feel comfortable. They’re skilled at mirroring others so that even if you don’t really know them, it seems like you do. They’re actually pretty demanding in relationships with Aries on their descendant. An Aries individual may help balance you in relationships very well provided chart and personality compatibility.

Their smile and soft features may be misleading if you find out they have more passionate, emotional signs like Scorpio or Cancer as luminaries.

Scorpio rising / Scorpio ascendant

This rising sign, like Cancer is quiet when facing unknown people. Scorpio’s defensive wall is very thick and everyone who isn’t in their sphere of trust will get a poker face. Their serious face that scrutinizes and observes is good at keeping people they don’t want to know, away. They have Taurus on the descendant so once you know them they are actually open and generous. A Taurus individual may help balance you in relationships very well provided chart and personality compatibility .

This ascendant can really be confusing if you find out they are the most open and talkative person when their luminaries are in masculine signs.

Sagittarius rising / Sagittarius ascendant

Sagittarius risings are enthusiastic and expressive. These people will talk with their hands and like to laugh a lot when their guard is up. Hyperbole is a part of their personality, telling a grandiose story to the person they’re sitting next to on the bus. In relationships, with Gemini on their descendant they actually do have an attention to detail in their relationships. A Gemini individual may help balance you in relationships very well provided chart and personality compatibility.

This expressive presentation might be very different from the more intimate version of them. With luminaries in earth signs you might find that they are actually very balanced and sober in their dealings.

Capricorn rising / Capricorn ascendant

About business. Even if you’re not in business, people see your straight face and calm demeanor and think you might be. You always appear to be headed somewhere purposefully. Capricorns have Cancer on their descendant and actually love their homes and spending time there with their loved one. A Cancer individual may help balance you in relationships very well provided chart and personality compatibility.

The serious and rigid appearance melts away when they know you especially if they have lighthearted Sagittarius or Gemini planets as luminaries.

Aquarius rising / Aquarius ascendant

Aquarius rising looks at everyone and treats everyone as equals, and impersonally. Even still there is a lighthearted and friendly demeanor about them. Just don’t disagree with an opinion of theirs. They actually do love the attention from a significant other in a relationship having Leo on their descendant. A Leo individual may help balance you in relationships very well provided chart and personality compatibility.

The lighthearted presentation might make way for a much more emotional personal life if they have water signs as luminaries.

Pisces rising / Pisces ascendant

This dreamy eyed and sensitive appearing person is rather quiet, drawing both sympathetic people but also predatory individuals. When Pisces risings move about they carry with them an aura of spirituality. They can convince people of many of things with an appealing emotional approach.  They are actually more critical and detail oriented than they appear in their relationships with Virgo on the descendant. A Virgo individual may help balance you in relationships very well provided chart and personality compatibility.

Pisces ascendants may appear sensitive but might actually be a roaring beast beyond the appearance especially if they have signs like Aries or Sagittarius as luminaries.

Happy Valentine’s Day, Tumblr. 💖

Today we’re working with the Ad Council (@lovehasnolabels) to spread the message that love has no labels, and to encourage everyone to treat each other equally—no matter their race, disability, sexuality, gender, or religion. If you have a story, photo, or any other kind of art that describes what “love has no labels” means to you, we want to see it. Post it with the tags #lovehasnolabels and #postitforward so everyone on Tumblr can find it.

I now realize why Victor said “I thought you might need my help a little longer” when Yuuri said “Let’s end this”

Maybe all of this has been said before, but I just had an “AHA” moment, so I wanted to put it into words.

I’ll be honest, this line confused me a bit:

But I realized something.

It was most likely Yuuri’s dream to stand on the same stage as Victor as someone capable/with the same level of skill/treated with the same amount of respect, based on this:

Let’s be clear, Yuuri wanted to compete against Victor when they would be on the same level.

So at first, I was confused when Victor said:

But you know what? I think Victor thought that Yuuri had wanted to be treated like an equal (or maybe even achieve Victor’s level of success now that Victor was out of the playing field). That could be why he wonders why Yuuri is giving up on his own career to keep Victor’s going.

Victor was okay with not competing and with helping Yuuri because he thought that way Yuuri could achieve his dream of being put on a pedestal the way Victor had been, but he didn’t realize that Yuuri didn’t want to do it without Victor. 

In short: They both wanted to give up their own careers so that the other could shine, not realizing (at this point) that they didn’t want to shine without each other’s presence in the competition. That it was meaningless without the other.

Familiars

What is a familiar?
A familiar is an animal whom you have a spiritual connection with. A witches companion. You call upon them to help you with your practices. They can be physical or spiritual beings. They are healers and guardians but above all, a loyal companion. Provides the witch with psychic protection as well as negative energy. They do not have to be your ‘pet,’ any animal that you use symbols of can also be your familiar but on a more spiritual level. Animals are chosen as a familiar because of their connection with nature and innocence. They protect on many spiritual levels as well as the home and property of the witch. They become able to communicate together in dreams and during meditation.     


History of Familiars
In Europe during the witch hunts familiars were thought of at demon like entities sent to do a witches bidding. It was believed that they were cats, dogs, and toads possessed by demons. Thus, during the witch hunt era many animals were hunted and slaughtered because of their connection with witches. Familiars were supposedly given to the Witches from by the Devil. It was believed that they were fed from the witches blood.

In some Scandinavian countries familiars were thought of as fearies, elves, pixies, dwarves, sprites, and elements of nature.

In shamanistic practices the familiar is in fact not a physical being rather it is a spiritual entity. It protects in the astral plane and from any psychic attacks.

In England and Scotland familiars took form of toads.


Familiar Misconceptions:

  • Not every witch has a familiar. In fact some are quite happy working alone. Some witches may even be allergic.
  • Cats are not the only animal used as a familiar.
  • No familiars are not possessed by demons or the devil.
  • Not all pets are familiars!


Types of animals to used as familiars: 

Any animal can be used as a familiar! The most common are cats (especially black) and dogs.


How you know it is your familiar and not just a pet:

  • It chose you.
  • You have a bond on a spiritual level.
  • You put more trust in it then anyone/anything else.
  • Takes an active role in your rituals.
  • Sits politely while you are casting being sure not to be a bother.
  • Loves to lounge in your magick work space.
  • You feel a boost of energy whenever they are near you.
  • Watches the window constantly watching for any unwelcome beings. 
  • Trails you like a shadow.
  • Hates to be separated from you


How to find your Familiar:

  • Cast a spell to bring clarity on your familiar.
  • Meditate on it.
  • Ask a form of divination about finding you familiar.


Ways to bond with your Familiar:

  • Provide it with a collar, halter, leash, etc that has protective crystals and herb sachets sewn into it. 
  • Carry a piece of a NATURALLY shed item from your familiar in a sachet or tied together with ribbon.
  • Provide them with the best food and housing you can afford.
  • Always place them before yourself.
  • Spend lots of time together.
  • Provide them with their own protection.
  • Speak to it.
  • Brush or stoke it. 
  • Treat them and reward them for their help.
  • Treat them with the kindness they deserve.
  • Honor them.
  • Provide them with an altar.
  • Give them offerings.


Familiar uses: 

  • Provide you with physical and spiritual protection.
  • Provide you the uttermost loyalty and respect
  • Benefits your emotional well being.
  •  Helps you connect with nature.
  • Enhances are physical and psychic abilities.
  • Protects home and property.


When to work with a Familiar:

  • When you want to attune with nature
  • Meditation
  • Healing magick
  • Dreamwork
  • Astral travelling 
  • Divination
  • Scrying
  • Spirit communication
  • Welcome them to join you when power is being raised and spells are cast. 


Respect a Familiar deserves:

Let it accompany you on its own accord and make sure it is willing to participate, NEVER force them to join in on a ritual. They are very sensitive to psychic power and vibrations. Treat them with kindness and the same respect you would give to a human being. Be sure to treat them as an equal and not something you own. This is very important if you want to create and maintain a connection with your familiar. Familiars are living beings and should never be treated like an athame, candle or an object for spell casting. Make sure to be cautious with the type of tools you are using during your casting with a familiar. Be cautious of candles or any toxic herbs!   


Names for familiars:

Instead of you choosing a name for them, ask them what their true name is.

You know jack the thing i like the most about you? You're not doing a fake facade or somthing like that You really care about your fans and dont mind physical contact and let peopole talk to you. There arent alot of youtubers who are actually nice

This means a lot to me, thank you! I try my best to be nice to people and not make it seem like I’m some untouchable entity. It’s much more fun to be real with people and treat everyone equally :)

Not every youtuber needs to be that way of course, some DO like distance but I am tired of all the fakers saying “I really care” when it’s clear they don’t

The possibility of Otayuri becoming canon

So in this post-Welcome to the Madness daze and with the information that has been released today, I would like to do some speculation about the character dynamic between Yurio and Otabek and the possible implications for this ship to become canon. I have already written a bit about this in a comment to another post here, but I would like to elaborate.

Again, this is just me throwing around ideas, with a good dose of wishful thinking.

-          Otabek enters the story quite late as a character. He is there from the beginning but we only get to see him interact with the others from episode 10 onwards. The focal point becomes what his relation is to Yuri. He whisks him away on his motorcycle, takes him to one of the most beautiful vistas in the city and then casually drops how he has admired him for the past five years. Then he offers Yuri his friendship, which has apparently never occurred in Yuri’s life before, they go for a coffee and Mari is stunned to see Yuri normally interact with another human being for a change. It’s up to you to ignore any fond gazes during this scene. What’s worth mentioning is that Yuri seems kind of perplexed by this whole thing. The “eyes of a soldier” line gets to him, because it is probably the first time someone sees him for who he wants to be.

This is psychological torture for white people. (x

Remind me again how Black people are too sensitive because I swear that’s what they keep telling me whenever I get upset at the justice system for railroading people who look like me or the media for the way they talk about the Obamas or our legislators for pandering to constituents who would still vote for Jim Crow laws.  I’m too sensitive when those things upset me but this is psychological torture for white people.

If you’re white and you can’t take this lil piece of reflection from an anonymous messageboard, you would not last six hours as a Black person in America.  I get worse than this from people in positions of power as soon as I turn on the television.  I had to watch My First Lady being called a man by actual political commentators with an audience of millions.  The sitting President of the United States is endorsed by the KKK, a terrorist group that has killed thousands of Black people.  But a few pieces of paper that simply call for white folks to recognize our humanity, treat us as equals, and stop ignoring the effects of history is psychological torture.

Being Lin-Manuel Miranda’s Daughter...
  • Lin would cry the day you were born but he would also brag a lot.
  • He’d shower you with gifts but he was also careful not to overdo it
  • Chances are, (depending on your age and whatever year you’d picture this for) you’d be friends with a lot of the Hamilton cast/ and or their kids
  • There’s no doubt about it you’d be a freestyling genius much like him and musically talented.
  • And Lin would be so proud of this
  • Lin’s heart would melt every time you called him ‘dad’
  • He is probably one of the most caring, sweetest, and involved father out there.
  • And if your mother wasn’t in the picture, Lin would be sure to work to fill in her shoes.
  • He would attend all your school events and extra curriculars too.
  • On mother’s day he would plan a brunch inviting his sister and mother over making sure you knew you weren’t alone when it came to the amount of females in your life.
  • Whenever he goes to Richard Rodgers Theatre or goes to work for whatever project he’s working on he is constantly pulling his phone out to show his fellow coworkers pictures of you
  • He can’t help it
  • But one thing is for sure, Lin would make sure you knew how strong of a woman you were. Being a strong activist for equal rights Lin knew how easy it was for girls in today’s society to feel weak and defeated by the powerful and he never wanted you to experience that. So he would make post-it notes and stick them in your lunchbox, on your mirror, and anywhere he could find with sayings such as…
  • “I am woman hear me roar!”
    “Though she be but little, she is fierce!”
    “A strong woman looks fear in the eye and gives it but a wink.”
    “You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem and smarter than you think.”
  • And because your father is one of the most encouraging and inspiring figures in the world, not only in tweets but reality as well, he excels at giving the best, most needed pep talks when you’re down in the dumps.
  • Lin had you speaking Spanish as soon as you said your first word
  • Lin would practically document your entire life. He liked taping you and taking pictures while you were doing casual activities such as coloring, singing, dancing, playing with your dolls, running around the house, etc.
  • Tobillo basically being your best friend
  • That dog follows you wherever you go
  • Lin has thousands of videos from when you were learning to walk, practically waddling around and Tobillo was right on your heel the entire time following you.
  • The whole Hamilton cast would be obsessed with you
  • Especially Phillipa
  • That girl loved you as if you were her own
  • And if you were old enough, you would join the Schuyler Sisters in their inbetween shows closet talk.
  • Sleep overs at Jasmine and Anthony’s while your dad is out of town
  • And they would absolutely LOVE having you over
  • You made them want to have kids that much more and Anthony loved taking you to the movies and Jasmine loved taking you out shopping
  • Speaking of shopping, Renee, Jasmine, and Phillipa are always spoiling you with the newest trends and what nots.
  • The Hamilton cast would be like another family to you
  • Always running around backstage with Groffsauce, who usually was assign babysitting duty.
  • The Schuyler sisters- as well as Leslie teaching you how to harmonize
  • Daveed loved helping you with your freestyling
  • You and him always got in heated battles- in good spirits of course
  • Playing childish games during intermission and between shows with Oak, Daveed, and Anthony.
  • Trying to braid your dad’s hair during his Hamilton days
  • Let’s be real, Lin would dedicate Dear Theodosia to you
  • And during Stay Alive (reprise) and It’s Quiet Uptown he had genuine tears pinching at his eyes as he fathomed the thought of losing you
  • But Lin would always run to you and spin you around every night after shows
  • The two of you would walk hand and hand together home and Lin would sing you to sleep every night
  • He’d love making you breakfast and basking in that domestic life
  • I could see him making some of the best pancakes in the world
  • And one morning when you were little, you convinced him to let you have a sip of his coffee
  • “Daddy, what’s that black stuff in there.”
    “It’s called coffee, bebé.”
    “Can I try some?”
    “Uh, I don’t think so, Y/n. You wouldn’t like it.”
    “Please, papi.”
    “Oh alright.”
  • Like he predicted, you hated it. The liquid burned your throat and young little you cried at the bitterness for at least a minute which broke Lin’s heart.
  • Lin would be the type of parent that would love to show you off to family and friends but when it came to posting pictures of you on social media, he usually made sure your face was covered, just to keep an element of privacy in his life.
  • But he does love tweeting stories about you or cute things that you do
  • Your childhood years would be a little hectic. Lin probably wouldn’t be around as much as he wants with filming, acting, composing and all but he would make an effort of a lifetime to be as involved as possible.
  • By your late teens you had already seen much of the world but that didn’t mean you were bored by any mean. Adventure was in your soul.
  • Lin would spend a lot of time with you during his time working with the film Moana. He liked to come to you to find inspiration.
  • Family trips to Disney World and Land
  • Lin is constantly trying to help you with his homework
  • “You know I was a teacher.”
  • Coming to him when you start learning about the American Revolution
  • “Well I mean you came to right person. I did write an entire musical about this stuff. Just use the album for a reference, it’s mostly accurate.”
  • Walking into your house one day after school infuriated as you set your pop quiz on the Schuyler Sisters in front of him, a large 9/10 circled with red pen.
  • “And I quote, I’m the oldest and the wittiest… My father has no sons… dad you cost me a perfect score! Why did you lie in the lyrics, I thought you said I could trust them!”
    “I’m sorry I forgot they had other siblings!”
  • Similar to your father, you swore like a sailor
  • Which also meant you were constantly getting scolded and death glares from your father who claims “He didn’t raise you to speak like that.” Even though you both know he did.
  • But honestly I could see Lin being into girl drama. Like when he picks you up from school and sees an annoyed look on your face he’d just shake his head and say,
  • “Spill the tea, honey. I’m ready!”
  • And on your bad days after dropping you off at home after school, Lin would drive to the nearest DQ and Chick-Fil-A and movie store returning home with gifts in toll.
  • He was one of the only people in the world you trusted enough to tell everything too
  • Dad jokes, so many dad jokes.
  • “Dad I’m thirsty. Do we have any-“
    “Hi thirsty nice to meet you I’m Lin-Manuel.”
  • Being very close with your grandparents
  • Your grandpa teaching you how to cook
  • Your grandma would spoil you tbh
  • Girl talk with your Aunt Luz
  • Your dad would be really big on making sure you knew and understood the importance of equality and treating others with respect. 
  • Weekly meals at their place where your grandpa is also telling tales
  • “You know pequeño, when your father was your age I couldn’t get him to shut up!”
    “Papi-“
    “He was always doing his rapping, talking fast and never making sense but he had passion just like yourself so don’t you ever give up on yourself carino. If your father did he would not be where he is today- and neither would you.”
    “Thank you abuelo.”
  • And when you finally do make it, doing whatever or being wherever that may be, you’ll have Lin’s as well as the rest of your families support because Lin knows exactly what it feels like to have millions of people doubt you and laugh at you for doing the unexpected so his support will never run out.
  • When Lin finds out you have a passion for writing and composing, he immediately takes you with him for a daddy daughter date to the studio.
  • He pretends to be out of ideas for a song and you play along knowing it would be a lot less painful to take the easy path.
  • “Well there are a few different projects I’ve been working on lately. They aren’t too good… pretty shitty-“
    “Y/n.”
    “Sorry… but uh, you can have a look I suppose.”
  • Becoming a co writer beside your dad on his next project
  • Going on walks and hikes together with Tobillo
  • But for real though Lin would be insanely protective over you
  • Like when it comes to you Lin always needs to know where you are and constantly has eyes on you
  • When you got your first boyfriend/girlfriend Lin would FLIP
  • You’d suddenly become a player in the game ’21 questions’ or more like 101 questions when it came to your dad
  • He demanded meeting your significant other and no matter the gender, he held his strong demeanor and hardly cracked a smile- well until he saw how happy you looked in their presence.
  • But eventually he’d come to term with it. Although he would always see you as his little girl, he knew you had to spread your wings and he was not about to hold you back from doing so.
  • And when you finally land a lead role on an upcoming Broadway show, Lin is ecstatic.
  • Every day he calls you to ask how rehearsals are going partly because he’s interested and excited for you but also because he remembers his restless days and nights where he’d come home so stressed he’d forget to eat for days. He didn’t want to see you go through the hardships he did.
  • Ironically enough the new production is held, opening night, in the same old theater you grew up in, Richard Rodgers. Home sweet home. 
  • And on opening night you can guarantee your father is sitting front row with four bouquets of various flowers surrounded by all your family and friends as well as a handful of the original and new Hamilton cast.
  • And he would cry. A lot.
  • But he would also be that dad that right before the show starts, as the lights are dimming, he stands up and shouts,
  • “Go Y/n!”
  • His proud dad tweets would be never ending that night
  • After the production he was sure to be the first backstage and the first to hug you.
  • “You did it, you did it! I’m so proud of you, mi ángel. Congratulations!”
  • You’d be lying to yourself if you said your dad didn’t have a surprise party planned for after the play because he did.
  • Not to be a downer but there would be days where Lin would cry himself to sleep thinking he hasn’t done enough, or given you the life you deserve. He worked himself far too hard to make sure you had everything you could ever need and knew you were loved, but sometimes he couldn’t help but fear the worst.
  • Although at times he can be overbearing, you wouldn’t want it anyway else.

This was so fun to write oh my lord, hope you enjoyed!

Meet the Cat Cosplay Kitties!

Our Cat’s are named Nak, and Fawkes. You all have a lot of questions about them so we’re making a new introduction post!

Nak has been working events for over 7 years now! She has dressed up for all sorts of things from Pirates and RenFaires to Sports rallies. She just was a guest at Emerald City Comicon to sign her Comic book covers for @valiantentertainment.

She is turning 15 next month but our Vet is ecstatic with how healthy and spry she is! She rides around on my shoulders quite a bit and has a habit of drooling when she purrs. She is also one of the softest cats you might ever pet.

Next is Fawkes (We adopted him on the Fifth of November)

He has a little disorder where his balance is a little off and he stomps everywhere he walks as a result. He also has trouble stopping when running at top speed >.< . He’s 6 now. And while Nak is the event Cat. Fawkes is by far the most trainable cat I’ve ever owned. He comes and sits on command. Also we’re working on Up and Down. He’s by and far the more enthusiastic of the two about the pictures. But that’s because photo shoots equal treats and playtime.

He also is amazing at holding poses longer than Nak.

Any time you see either of the cats with an open mouth. It’s because they are chewing a treat, and I’m trying to get a certain expression with the lips/mouth. But it’s also how I end up with the silly derpy pictures while I’m snapping tons of shots.

How we’ve worked with them is to positively reinforce the activities we do with them. Treats, playtime, special dinners, and no negativity. You can’t just jump into this. If you wanted to do costumes you should start small and loose and comfortable and work slowly towards a goal, and LISTEN to the feedback you get from your pet. They are your partner.

Just remember for every 1 photo you all see I’ve deleted around 15-30 more to try and get these shots just right and in the best focus. I’ve been getting better.

Oh and while we’re at it. I’m “Freyu” the Artist/Feline wrangler (Who used to sword fight at Faires)

And with the help of my Wife we’ve turned this into a fun little side job in order to help bring smiles and brighten all of your days! From our family to yours, stay positive! and Brighten as many days as you can, when you can!
