My daughter
                       wouldn’t hurt a spider
That had nested
Between her bicycle handles
For two weeks
She waited
Until it left of its own accord

If you tear down the web I said
It will simply know
This isn’t a place to call home
And you’d get to go biking

She said that’s how others
Become refugees isn’t it?

I’ve been doing askblogs for different fandoms basically since I joined Tumblr, but still am not really an expert on it, so these are pretty vague tips, sorry! But what I’d suggest:

hi. jonathan byers doesn’t have to fit a certain definition of “hot” or “attractive” to be a wonderful, shippable, and validated character. and reducing him to his appearance and judging him solely based on that isn’t okay. thanks for coming to my TED talk.


Regarding my ‘absence’ ;)

As usual my queue has run out of posts (again!) and I haven’t been able to fill it up of release other stuff because of this…

It’s the BroHill Kitchen that came with GP05 but the polished to the core and now a b-e-a-utiful glittery diamond! XD I liked the kitchen very much but; It had those AWEFUL corners and a whole bunch of other stuff I didn’t liked. I’m also making additional furniture (refrigerator nooks, etc) to add on to it.🤗 

This is my biggest project to date; it already has over 20+ edited/new meshes (and counting!) and its going to be my 1k followers gift (not sure if i’m going to make it on time). It’s supposed to be done in 1 / 1,5 weeks.

It’s almost a whole new kitchen😅… except that it’s not. Which makes it a bit frustrating; given the amount of work that goes into it. I worked on this almost the whole day today😱😅.

Cinema date for any ship u like where one person wants to make out in the back row but the other person is actually really into the movie and is all "hang on a minute this is a really gripping scene"

Brotzly - PG

Dirk buries himself deeper into his coat, huffing conditioned-cold air and shrinking away from the loud orange explosions erupting across his vision. 

He doesn’t like watching films. In fact, he hates them. Hates how the theatres are either too hot or too cold. Hates the stereo crunch of sickly-sweet, gritty popcorn being shovelled into faces that seconds before would be slurping heart-stoppingly humongous buckets of Coke. Hates how ostracised he feels, even in language. It isn’t a queue, it’s a line. It’s a movie theatre, not a cinema. It isn’t even a film, it’s a movie, now. Wasn’t it hard enough for everyone to learn English the first time? Why on earth would anyone want to make a different version of it? Everything is loud and annoying and boring and -

‘This is the best bit,’ Todd grins, grabbing Dirk’s thigh. 

Todd’s eyes are glinting in the reflection of the screen, his face splashed blue from the dark ocean being displayed in front of them. Dirk’s face feels on fire, the pressure of Todd’s fingers on his leg twitching as the eponymous movie shark breaches the water. 

Okay, this he can get along with. This might be why movie theatres are so well packed of teenagers who - Dirk notices now he’s looking for it - amongst their sucking and crunching are also kissing quite a bit.

Dirk puts his head on Todd’s shoulder. No reaction. He puts his hand on Todd’s hand - the one still on his thigh - and squeezes it. Todd twitches his eyes in Dirk’s direction, curious, and Dirk takes the opportunity to leer as politely as he can.

‘You okay? You need to go to the bathroom?’ Todd whispers.

‘What? No! I was -’

‘Shh, then,’ Todd says, taking his hand away. His attention is back on the screen, hand reaching for popcorn.

Dirk sighs, defeated, and moves slightly closer into Todd’s warmth - fighting the stupid armrest between them. 

No kissing, but at least he can be warm.

I still haven’t updated my game from the patch before cats and dogs, so I’m going to do that at some point. I also have a lot to do this weekend, so I may not have time to sim for a wee while, but I will be back as soon as I can! 

okay but consider this: nancy wheeler isn’t defined by who she dates/falls for. she is a character in her own right and the focus should not be on just her love story, it should be on her entire story in general.

I have a queue!

I have 81 posts actually. I can’t remember the last time I had that many. I just got really excited and was feeling so inspired after so long. There should be 5 posts a day for a while, until I get close to running out.

I’m in a much better place right now than I have been the past several months, and I’m happy to be able to share the Copelands with you all again.

Happy weekend!

If you don’t know the kind of person I am,
and I don’t know the kind of person you are,
a pattern that others made may prevail in the world,
and following the wrong God home, we may miss our star.

For there is many a small betrayal in the mind,
a shrug that lets the fragile sequence break,
sending with shouts the horrible errors of childhood
storming out to play through the broken dikes.

And as elephants parade holding each elephant’s tail,
but if one wanders, the circus won’t find the park,
I call it cruel and maybe the root of all cruelty,
to know what occurs but did not recognize the fact.

And so I appeal to a voice,
to something shadowy,
a remote, important region in all who talk:
though we could fool each other, we should consider –
lest the parade of our mutual life get lost in the dark.

For it is important that awake people be awake,
or a breaking line may discourage them back to sleep;

The signals we give – yes or no, or maybe –
should be clear:
the darkness around us is deep.

Why didn’t Kabiri make Gwyn blood oath to take care of Mosk and Eran? Is the life debt more powerful than that? (alsoholyshitkabirisback)

Because Gwyn wouldn’t blood oath that. He doesn’t owe anyone a blood oath, he owes a life debt. (Also Kabiri doesn’t care if Mosk dies, and he can’t use his powers to interfere in ways that specific for fae that aren’t fire fae anyway. He sort of outlines how it works to Eran - it’s one of the reasons why Kabiri first interferes on behalf of Ifir, and then his second debt is for Eran. He’s specifically using his debts to help fire fae. Even if Kabiri gave one shit about Mosk (he doesn’t), he still couldn’t use the life debt that way, or even force a blood oath.)

When the life debt is called, Gwyn must pay it back. He’s obligated. He can’t turn Kabiri away (which he wanted to do), he can’t say no outright (which he wanted to do) and he can’t say ‘that’s unreasonable’ because it’s not. Mostly, claming a life debt has to discharge the debt, and a blood oath doesn’t discharge a debt, it holds that promise over someone’s head for the rest of their lives. (Which is why people don’t claim debts by enforcing blood oaths, the two don’t really mix - with the exception of Lludd breaking everything about fae lore he could to force Gwyn to blood oath for him - blood oaths must be voluntarily entered into. They can be negotiated and ultimately they can be refused).

The life debt is the most powerful form of fae debt.

The blood oath isn’t a form of debt at all. It’s a fae oath. It’s a pledge that you will do your best to promise something to someone else and if it has the word ‘blood’ in front of it in the fae world, you can die for not upholding it. But you have to choose it. (Lludd forcing Gwyn into it, is - along with Gwyn’s age - a big reason why he didn’t actually die when he broke his in the first place). 

I mean you can die from both (refusing the first, breaking the second). But any fae can theoretically refuse a suggestion that they blood oath (and Fenwrel does in COFT, with some disgust that she was even asked to in the first place). No fae can refuse a reasonable life debt being claimed, unless they are being asked to die. Gwyn negotiated the debt as much as he could, but ultimately, he did what Kabiri claimed.

But yeah Kabiri doesn’t care about Mosk. Kabiri doesn’t think Mosk is all that important anyway, in the same way that up until now, Gwyn hasn’t given a single shit about Eran either, lol. Everyone has different pieces of the puzzle that they care about more.

I’m still having a fantastic time in Japan, and the queue may be spotty or stop running at times for the next few days while I enjoy my last few days of vacation and then make my way back home! I’m surprised I’ve mostly managed to keep the queue going for most of the trip (can’t say that about my other blogs, haha), but now I’m starting to run low on stuff to reblog.

I bought a bunch more HxH merchandise in Den Den Town in Osaka yesterday, omg…

I’m planning on getting a big queue sorted next week! I haven’t felt much inspiration to play again lately, because I’ve been stuck with a cold :( I’ve recovered a bit now thankfully, so I’ll probably get a few shots tonight and some more in the week.
