The Yakai 1/1/2017: Wherein Ariyoshi expected complaints but instead got thanked for trying to look for drama between Sho and Jun. Meanwhile, Sho vehemently denies any flirting going on between them. :P
“You might want money. Maybe you want women. Or, you might want to protect the world. These are all common things people want. Things that their hearts desire. Greed may not be good, but it’s not so bad, either. You humans think greed is just for money and power! But everyone wants something they don’t have.”
Throughout the series we've seen Dean interact with his fair share of kids/early teens and he was always amazing with them. Do you think he feels more like a big brother or like a parent towards them? (I mean apart from Ben, who I'm still pissed wasn't actually Dean's, though I understand.) Most of the time the age difference would make him a young dad (around 15-20 if I'm not mistaken) but not impossibly young. Feel free to start a discussion if you like and thanks :)
Yeah, well Dean’s experience with parenting began when he was 4, so being a “young dad” is pretty much par for the course for him.
Though a lot of the kids he has “parented” on the show are pretty much in the same age range as Ben was. Krissy was what, 15 or 16 when he met her and he was 34 or 35. Claire is about the same age, maybe a year younger. And Alex is even a year younger than her, though Dean hasn’t had as much chance to “parent” her since he met her in the depths of his MoC days…
It’s almost like they’re just at that weird age gap where he could be either a parent or just a much older brother. I think that’s why his relationship with Charlie has a distinctly different feel, because he really does feel purely “brotherly” toward her.
He never really goes full-on parent with anyone though. He walks this weird line that I can sort of relate to. We hosted an exchange student for a year once. He was 18 when he moved in with us, and I was about 28. I jokingly referred to him as “the Swedish teenage son I never had.” And technically I was responsible for him as a guardian, but hell if I actually treated him like my child. it was an interesting dynamic, but it’s pretty much exactly how Dean relates to teenagers on the show.
I think it’s also partly because with teenagers Dean gets to let loose and act a little more like a teenager himself. He never got to be a kid, so he indulges in more child-like things with relish when he has the excuse of a younger person to relate to. Like mini golfing with Claire.
Today I’ve just been thinking about boxer!Chloe and it’s ruining me omg.
Like imagine if she finally goes to see a therapist or just talks to someone about her anger and attitude and they’re like “Maybe you could let out your anger through a sport or something.” and at first she’s like wtf I aint getting my hair messed up. But then goes to a boxing class one day just because her father kept suggesting it and she felt bad saying no. And so she goes and thinks she’s all that but then the teacher is like “Oh, okay if you’re better than this then try to take me down.” and she takes the challenge cuz she’s Chloe and gets taken down and the teacher/coach(?) is like “See class, you have to do this and blah blah.” And Chloe starts going everyday to get better and better so she can defeat the guy and just starts liking it a lot. She starts doing matches with people and gets stronger and stronger and is just much more calm at school with everyone and more mellow. And she even picks up Adrien sometimes to show him her strength and he’s like hella impressed and she always gives him piggyback rides when she sees that he’s sleepy or stressed. And like she isn’t afraid to get sweaty anymore and sometimes she’ll have these badass looking bruises or something on her arms and takes pride in them cuz she won those matches and arm wrestle Kim and Alix all the time and they become friends. And just pls. I just really love boxer!Chloe
Request: Is it possible that you could write a Gaston x reader where he’s desperately in love with you, but you hate him, and then you slowly fall in love with him? Thanks so much!- @sherlocks-timetraveling-assbutt
full offense i just want everyone to know that i will forever hate the grand majority of the one direction fandom that tore liam to fucking shreds when he gained back weight after renouncing his unhealthy workout routine + meal skipping but gave harry nothing but endless support and love when he started to do the same
Peaceful mornings at the Skywalker residence. Sorry I was too lazy to google a more legit prosthetic.
EDIT: This is way too late and probably futile, but for the record, this comic takes place in a domestic Earth AU.
(Okay I lied, I coloured this mytho doodle after all) anyway, as my first submission stated, your blog is a light in my days and ypur art and headcanons bring me joy. I hope its not too weird to send you something but I hope you like it c:
I’m gonna go ahead and recommend money-making apps, because I’ve tried a bunch of them and some are better than others.
AppTrailers is the most impressive thus far, even though I’ve only been using it a short time. It has the lowest cash-out rate I’ve ever seen, so I’ve already been able to transfer money to my Paypal account. Twice. It was $.50 each time, but that’s still notable because most apps don’t let you cash out until you earn $10 or more, and that can take ages because most of those apps operate on a point system. You’re not earning money, you’re earning points you trade in for cash. Even though AppTrailers operates on this system, it’s pretty easy to earn–I like to just turn the sound off and watch the ads while I’m doing something else. Even the low earners give you 5 points per watch, which is a jump on the 1 point that seems to be customary. I’m used to not being able to earn a lot because I don’t have many people to refer, but this one works for me. You don’t have to earn big to cash out, and that means it’s becoming one of my go-tos.
Google Opinion Rewards is honestly one of the best, and it doesn’t even give you ‘real’ cash. It gives you credit to buy things on GooglePlay, which is great for me because I sometimes like to buy stuff in the games I play. If you don’t have any reason to use GP, this app isn’t for you; I say it’s the best because I’m used to not getting very many survey opportunities and this app gives me a new survey pretty much every week–often more than once a week. I’ve been using it since November, and I’ve already earned $22–that’s kind of a lot for a money-making app. It may not put any cash in your pocket, but it’ll let you buy things without actually spending your hard-earned cash. *cough*attackonlight*cough*
Fronto is a… decent… app. I realize that’s not a glowing assessment, and that’s because I’m still assessing different lockscreen apps. It took me months to cash out with $10, but the fact that it pops up on your phone every time you unlock it makes you feel like you’re actually doing something semi-productive with your time, even if it’s not worth much. I got paid. Real money. And I didn’t even have to go out of my way to do it.
OnGo surveys is alright. At first the amount of surveys was semi-comparable to Opinion Rewards, but these days I rarely receive any notifications at all. The cashout llevel is $10, and I’ve been stuck at $7 for a while, but I’d still recommend this app because the surveys and easy, quick, and give you several cents rather than several points. They just updated the app, so I may need to revamp my assessment in the future.
Survey.com is similar to Ongo surveys, only slightly worse. Both are still sending me surveys, but it’s slow going. It has a minimum cashout level of $7.50, and I currently have $2.50. I’m only recommending it because it’s easy, it notifies you when a survey is available, it uses cash instead of points, and if you’re not lazy you can occasionaly get location-based surveys that offer more moolah. Neither this nor Ongo offer any survey rewards.
I made this post because I’ve tried apps like Fronto and Cashpirate, but they don’t really work for me. I don’t think the points you earn are worth the amount of data you have to download–my wifi is spotty, so I end up going over my data plan before I even earn anything–and, because they rely so heavily on things like apps and references, I was never able to actually get paid. Most of the apps I’ve listed here will notify you about chances to earn more money, and I just find them easier to use. Referrals are still the best way to earn points, though, so if you use toreo2 for Fronto and AppTrailers it would really help me out. General tip for everyone, even if you’re not planning on doing this–if your friends are into survey apps, joining and using their code will help them earn money, even if you never use it afterwards. That’s why you may see some people asking over and over.
Some people get paid to write articles like these. I need to figure out how to do that.
