The Spectrum of Humanity

An excerpt from an essay published by Arak'Antos, professor of Humanology at a renowned university.

The sheer scope of humanity’s variety necessitated the creation of an entirely new field of study.  Never before in the history of galactic civilization has any one race been so uniquely bizarre that they could not be encompassed in standard xenobiology and xenopsychology courses.  Even before the body modifications that they are so fond of, it can often be different to tell that two humans belong to the same race, as they can differ in every plausible physical and psychological way.

Their skins’ pigmentation ranges from a deep brown that approaches true black, to rare individuals that possess no pigments whatsoever, leaving them entirely white.  They can have hair covering most of their body, or have none at all.  They can range in height at adulthood from four feet tall to eight feet tall, with some notable exceptions on both ends of the spectrum.  

The psychological differences are just as pronounced.  Several humans have agreed to extended observation as part of my ongoing research into their nuances, and the findings have been striking.  One volunteer shunned physical contact at nearly any cost, and avoided social interaction whenever plausible.  He would sometimes sit as his computer in silence for long periods of time, once going nearly three days without moving, without even eating.  I did not interrupt, as I wished the observation to be impartial, but once I felt I had collected enough data, I asked him about it.  Was it difficult to go that long without nourishment or rest?  His response:

“Not really?  I guess I just lost track of time.”

This has been observed in other humans as well, to lesser degrees, with them being able to “lose track of time” as they focus on a single task, be it something as trivial as assembling a model or reading a book, for hours.  Inversely, I have also observed humans who would be, simultaneously, working on a report, listening to music, watching video, and participating in one or more conversations through voice communications or text programs.  When denied one or more of these stimulants, they would become noticeably on-edge, and their productivity would, somehow, suffer.

There is no known correlation between mental and physical attributes, either.  Every few months I see some naïve young researcher publish a paper that “proves” a link between human appearances and behavior patterns, only for humans to “come out of the woodwork” and present themselves as living evidence of the falsity of their claim. 

In short, no matter how much we study humans, only the most basic of understandings can be applied to them as a species.  To understand a given human, one must study that specific human.

Aspects To Mercury: The Art of Communication

An interest in Mercury has sparked me tonight, so I would like to make a post about the aspects to it; how planets can modify and add to its power whether it be psychically modified by Neptune or artistically modified by Venus, Mercury gives us something very special. Our minds are gifts, each and every mind has its ways. With planetary aspects to Mercury, we get insight on how we put our element to work.
Note: I’m excluding the Sun from this post as I already put it here and the only major aspect it can make is the conjunction.

Mercury and Moon; the Expressive Mind

Mercury Conjunct Moon
The mind and emotions work together, although, one may dominate the other depending on the sign they are in (obviously if the moon is in a more complementary sign for it, it will dominate Mercury and vice versa). Speaking their emotions may be easy for them. Makes them witty and talkative, very expressive in the way they communicate, it is very easy to read their emotions based on the way they speak to you.

Mercury Trine/Sextile Moon
The mind and emotion are in complete harmony. The power of emotions can be put into thoughts, words, and writing very easily for this individual. This is an excellent placement for writers or any area that may require emotion into expressing ideas so things aren’t all robotic. Very perceptive and expressive. 

Mercury Square Moon
The complete opposite of the harmonious aspects. The mind and emotions are at conflict with each other. Emotions need to be controlled wherever Mercury is sitting in (check the house). Decisions may be based on emotions, needs to be more reasonable. Needs to stop switching between rational and irrational feelings. Easy attitude adjustment can fix this. On the positive side, carries unconditional love. 

Mercury Opposite Moon
Opposition usually represent outer forces. Opt to be the victim of gossip and criticism. Should also not be the cause of gossip and criticism themselves as it will create more karmic debt. Like the square, could have issues with being reasonable. Needs some attitude adjustments. Likely to be very nervous and restless too often. May likely possess some of the positive traits from the harmonious aspects making them good writers.

Mercury and Venus; the Artistic Mind

Note: Venus can only ever be 78 degrees apart from Mercury. We are always aware of the power of love in our mind, thus they cannot be separated too much. The only major aspects it can make are the conjunction and the sextile. It can make minor aspects semi-sextile (harmonious), quintile (harmonious), and semi-square (inharmonious), but the orbs on them would have to be extremely tight to be noticeable and I have not researched enough on those aspects to feel comfortable spreading too much information on them. You can get a basic idea that the semi-sextile is similar to sextile, but just a minor form of it and a semi-square is similar to the square, but a minor form of it. Quintiles symbolize awareness or lack there of; things we do without realizing. Aaaand I’ve rambled on, but maybe you guys learned something new.

Mercury Conjunct Venus
The mind is very refined and artistic. Soft and charming. Ideas and voice can be almost hypnotizing. Very friendly when unafflicted. Speaks beauty so effortlessly.

Mercury Sextile Venus
Great placement for musicians; it combines the mind with artistic abilities. Very artistic. Friendly, charming, and social, may come off a little fake though.

Mercury and Mars; the Passionate Mind

Mercury Conjunct Mars
Mental process is passionate, aggressive, and fiery (especially if the planets are in fiery signs). Can make the individual sharp tongued, sarcastic, and blunt. When discussing passion for something, the energy is likely to be extremely bold unless other placements can tone down this fiery force.

Mercury Trine/Sextile Mars
Put mind into action. Extremely passionate about their ideas and arguments. They love to argue. The mind seems to always be working. A new day is a new opportunity for these people. Maybe blunt and sarcastic. 

Mercury Square Mars
Hot-tempered, too blunt, and too sarcastic. Must stabilize their animal-like ways to fix aggression. Control the rudeness.

Mercury Opposite Mars

Unlike the square, these people are likely to encounter people like the square especially if the planets are tied to the seventh house; be sure to check all houses though, because, personal houses affect the individual internally whereas a very public house such as the tenth house has to do with aggressive outer forces trying to balance karma again. Great potential and ambition. Passion is still there like the harmonious aspects.

Mercury and Jupiter; the Good Spirited Mind

Mercury Conjunct Jupiter
Jupiter gives the mind some philosophical links. Very generous and jovial. Humorous, optimistic, and intelligent minded. Mind is kind of lazy, may need Mars to give it a push for bigger goals. The mind find interest in literature, art, and religion. Its good nature leads simpleness to the individual’s life, you could even say their life is easy, but it may just be because they hardly wish to act upon big opportunities. They are always quite content.

Mercury Trine/Sextile Jupiter
Very intelligent and wise despite the age the individual may be. Makes for a great teacher. Like the conjunction, strong interests in the areas of literature, art, and religion. May hold strong faith. Contagious optimism.

Mercury Square Jupiter
Good spirited and easy to speak to. The mind tends to procrastinate and be forgetful. Difficulty with rejecting and tend to be “yes-men.” Money smart. Superstition, but skeptical towards religion. If Jupiter lacks good aspects with other personal planets, judgement may be poor. Has a hard time keeping secrets if this aspect is prominent. Difficulty with pulling together mental resources quickly when being questioned or argued with.

Mercury Opposite Jupiter
How this aspect acts will really depend on what signs Mercury and Jupiter are in. It is mental activity versus all areas Jupiter manifests. May be seen as a difficult aspect in fixed signs as it creates stubbornness in the matters of truthfulness. Other than that, it can possess many of the traits the harmonious trine or sextile carries.

Mercury and Saturn; the Serious Mind

Mercury Conjunct Saturn
Very serious, unless Venus or Jupiter loosens the individual. If Saturn is something that is very prominent and persistent in the individual’s chart, they may be gloomy or pessimistic. Deep thinker. Tendency to loneliness if self-centred thoughts are expressed. Make good teachers as they are very orderly and strict. Through hard work, they will see great success. 

Mercury Trine/Sextile Saturn
Practical, intelligent, responsible, ambitious. Likely to have grown up well disciplined. Their minds are very good at absorbing knowledge. Great self control. A favourable aspect to have for good physical health as Saturn gives strength to bones. 

Mercury Square Saturn
A polar opposite to the trine/sextile. May not be so great where education is concerned. The mind is just not very good at absorbing knowledge like the harmonious aspect is. Squares are to teach us to be persistent. Where gaining knowledge is difficult, the individual needs to be patient and overcome this difficulty. Learn how to improve memory skills and studying habits. Avoid depressive thoughts of “I can’t do this” and stay away from bad habits.

Mercury Opposite Saturn
Brings lack of communication and issues from outer forces, especially family and relatives when aspected to the 3rd, 4th, or 7th house. Brings on feelings of being uncared for. Early life is generally unhappy and disrupted where education is concerned, but as they get older, intelligence and success should come their way. Feeling limited is only temporary. If Saturn is prominent in the individual’s chart, they are likely to be very serious and distrusting. 

Mercury and Uranus; the Genius Mind

Mercury Conjunct Uranus
Mercury and Uranus work together like PB & J. You could easily call an individual with this aspect a genius as they can easily come up with new concepts and ideas. Their minds think on a whole other level. Will and mind is strong.

Mercury Trine/Sextile Uranus
Originality and extraordinary intelligence. Inventive, keen, quick minded, especially in air signs. Excellent communicators. Independent and even a bit eccentric. 

Mercury Square Uranus
Although a square, does not lack intelligence. Probably just as original and intelligent as the conjunction, but attitude is somewhere else. Very independent, kind of snappy, sarcastic, and blunt. If lacks harmonious aspects to Venus, they may need to learn how to speech more gently. The independent mastermind, maybe too independent. 

Mercury Opposite Uranus
Needs to control their erratic tendencies as although they can gain some things for this individual, they can also bring sudden loss. By checking what houses are associated with this aspect, you can see where the spontaneous behaviour is being expressed. Nervous and impatient, still opt to be intelligent. 

Mercury and Neptune; the Dreamy Mind

Mercury conjunct Neptune
Of course with such a strong aspect to Neptune, the individual is going to have some difficulty with the reality of things. Fact and myth sometimes just blurs into a singular meaning. If lacks aspects to Saturn, likely to live more in the mythical land versus reality. Romantic and a wishful thinker. Sensitive and psychic. Needs to work on focus. Great aspect for musicians and poets.

Mercury Trine/Sextile Neptune
This quote best describes this placement better than I ever could, “Inspirational, poetic, and creative mind, Aptitude for psychic and mystical fields. Can benefit from dreams and visions. Practical idealist. Is able to use his inspirational powers constructively. Exquisite sensitivity toward the subtler aspects of life. Strong love of the sea and should live near it. Has the ability to contact higher planes of consciousness in sleep and in meditation and bring instruction through to the conscious mind.” - Astrology, A Cosmic Science

Mercury Square Neptune
Again, we are to learn from squares, they build strength. An individual with this aspect needs to learn to focus and take off the rose-filtered glasses. Needs to be more honest and direct. Thoughts need to be more clear. Psychic ability may be there, but also may cause difficulties. Deception brings on more deception; its the way karma works. May be as sneaky as a snake, but karma will get them eventually and it won’t be good. No more lies and unnecessary secretiveness. Truth brings truth.

Mercury Opposite Neptune
Great imagination, but may need to be reminded of what is real. Quite emotional, a lot of mental activity based on emotions. Should be careful of deceptive people; don’t put your guard down. Check what houses are associated with this aspect so you know where the deception could come from. 

Mercury and Pluto; the Perceptive Mind

Mercury Conjunct Pluto
The aspects brings that ability to bring the unconscious mind into thoughts and words. a great aspect for investigators or anything that requires careful research. You could say their mind is very penetrating, it can pierce through the unknown. The individual has to some degree, the power to manipulate. They are very perceptive and know exactly what to say to a person to trigger specific thoughts and emotions. Some individuals may use their ‘powers’ for negative purposes.

Mercury Trine/Sextile Pluto
Similar to the conjunction, but not likely to use their ability to obtain power like the conjunction might. This individual is logical and original. 

Mercury Square Pluto
Skeptical and impatient. May not be as perceptive as the harmonious aspects, so they need to slow down, especially when reading people’s gestures. The obsession for knowing the unknown for power-related reasons is common with this aspect.

Mercury Opposite Pluto
This individual can sometimes be oversensitive. Feels lonely ever when clearly not; lack of contentment in groups of friends. Constantly feeling of needing to self-improve to seek inner contentment. Needs to think carefully before making judgement or decisions. On the positive side, these people have great motivation to their desires. They will work for them.

Hello friends today I would like to talk about Damian (surprise!)

It’s just that I noticed a pattern, and I felt like y’all needed to hear about it: I can think of six different times where Damian went out of his way to give people very thoughtful, very individual gifts.

1) The pearl from Martha Wayne’s necklace (B&R 14), which he found in the sewers after a considerable amount of effort– we see him searching for it in two different issues (B&R 9, 13). Side note: made a rat friend, named it Spotty

2) In the first B&R Annual, Damian literally set up a scavenger hunt for Bruce, resulting in three different gifts. A painting by his mom

3) This photo of Thomas and Martha’s honeymoon, at the exact spot the picture was taken

About Ryuji

I noticed someone mention that they were curious as to why Ryuji would walk with a limp when he had his leg broken. They didn’t understand why that would be since the friends they’d had who’d broken their legs all walked without limps; and the only plausible explanation they had was that Ryuji hadn’t gotten proper treatment for his injury. Now this theory could be possible. Kamoshida had a stranglehold on the school. It’s entirely possible that he was able to sway the nurse into looking the other way, or convinced her into not sending him to a hospital. However, Ryuji’s leg is straight. The animators didn’t add in the subtle crookedness his leg would have if it had healed improperly, so this is unlikely. There’s are a few other explanations though.

The first alternative explanation being that Kamoshida actually broke one of his joints (Hip, knee, or ankle) rather than just his leg. Joints are delicate. I tore the meniscus in my right knee in middle school and even now, over ten years later it will still give me trouble if I’ve been on my feet all day long. All it’d take is a carefully placed strike and irreparable damage would be inflicted. However, none of the characters never use the word ‘knee’, ‘hip’. or ‘ankle’ to specify WHERE Ryuji had his leg broken. There’s also the fact that he usually clutches his calf, not his knee or his ankle, when his leg bothers him. So this the least likely.

The second explanation is that the break inflicted was not clean. Apply the right amount of pressure, and the bone could shatter into multiple pieces, which would be a lot slower to heal, and a lot more difficult to heal PROPERLY. The smaller the pieces, the harder to would be to recover from. Add a twisting motion, and the bone could be wrenched out of place and tear through muscle. Grind into the injury and you’d probably work the bone shards into the meat of his legs, meaning Ryuji would need surgery to remove them. The characters never go into detail of how or what happened, so we don’t know any specifics about what the doctors did to fix his leg, so this one is actually the most likely by omission of detail in game. 

The third explanation is that Ryuji simply hasn’t fully recovered yet. Remember, he’s only in his second year and we know he wasn’t held back. That means the injury to his leg is a year old AT MOST; and it’s likely that it’s fresher than that, since it’s stated that Kamoshida subbed for their regular Coach. Meaning that Ryuji and the others would have to know and be familiar with their regular Coach and his training methods, which would take time. There’s also the fact that when you first start training with Ryuji, he mentions that it’s ‘been forever’ since he trained. So he hasn’t been using his leg ever since the incident. This makes sense, as Ryuji fell into despair after he was told he wouldn’t be able to run anymore, and probably avoided running or any kind of activity that would strain his leg. This means that his recovery was halted, since part of rehabilitation is getting back your former strength in the injured limb. It may be that after a year, Ryuji would be able to walk without a limp. I find this unlikely though.

Even with all these alternate explanations, there’s one thing that I haven’t addressed though. Kamoshida himself. Excluding the final explanation, all of these reasons for why Ryuji walks with a limp require knowledge of the human body. You would have to know where and how to strike in order to do the kind of damage required to permanently injure someone. And Kamoshida, as a former Olympic medalist, would know this. He would know to go after the joints, or how to twist or stomp on a leg to shatter the bone. Nakaoka tells Kamoshida about Ryuji’s family. He knows about his dad, and that he’s trying to become the star track runner so he can get a scholarship into college; and his response is to destroy the thing that would make that possible. He CRIPPLES a student relying on his athletic ability just so he can feel better about himself. He violates Ryuji’s body and makes him feel worthless just like he violated Shiho. This is what makes him a despicable human being. He deserved far worse than what he got.

Renior

I really urge you to look into Renoir as a person. 

Renoir was my favorite artist when I was first discovering art history. I loved his work I even cried when I saw dance in the city in person. Then I did some research. He was incredibly anti-semitic especially towards jewish artists, or people who painted jewish subjects, He was also horribly sexist- which is why women are so objectified in his works. If you notice women are always reading magazines or picture books, because he believed that knowledge was not important for women. His son remembered him saying that women needed to scrub floors and do laundry to stay slim so it would make sex more enjoyable. He was disgusting.

So I’ll give you some recommendations of other artists who not only were great artists, but decent people. 

If you like French impressionism check out Berthe Morisot, If you want those idyllic lush landscape scenes look into Charles Courtney Curran. If you like his painterly brush strokes look into Theo Van Rysselberghe

Another week and a half passed, and Jun quickly became used to the routine of you being gone for a few hours. When you weren’t relaxing, you were helping Jun with his ‘human research’ as the two of you had begun to call it.

You’d noticed that over the past few days, Jun had begun to develop more of a solid personality, but he retained his naive demeanor. He’d begun to banter with you more often, being able to speak out for himself at times, as well.

He never really ate still, but it seemed not to be a problem, since his framework didn’t let him understand the sensation of hunger, sickness, or thirst. 

Only problem was, he hadn’t left the apartment since you first found him at the convenience store.

cas leaves after being been human for three days and seven hours (not that dean’s been counting).

it’s not a big announcement, either. cas doesn’t own much, it all fits in a backpack, so when he’s slowly making his way to the garage of course dean at first thinks that cas is – whatever, doing some groceries shopping or getting pizza or burgers. he definitely doesn’t think about cas leaving.

You never joined in on the conversations written on the arms to see if this was some kind of joke by your soulmate. One of them went by the name JR and the other N. They spoke Korean, and little bits and pieces of English. You were the opposite. You spoke little bits and pieces of Korean and spoke English.

You tried to tell your parents that you had 2 soulmates. They laughed and said your soulmate is pulling a prank. You didn’t think that they would do that, would they? Today was the day where you had decided to write to your soulmates and tell them. The writing on your arm right now was translated to, “Did you take a shower?” JR’s handwriting told you he asked. N had responded with, “No, Why?” JR’s handwriting appeared again, “Why was our messages washed off again?” You decided to write now.

“I’m afraid to inform you there is a 3rd.”

You’d finally had enough, this was the last straw. You paced around Bobby’s kitchen, where you have been and would continue to be cooped up while your husband and brother-in-law grounded you from hunting until further notice, leaving you to FBI and research duty. They said it was only until everything was safe, which… meant you would be here forever. Not that you didn’t love Bobby, but with your condition you’ve been even more grouchy than him lately.

The current reason for your ire was standing in the doorway leading to the living room, and he couldn’t figure out why you were so angry. You finally shouted, “How about you leave me the fudge alone!”

Your husband put a hand to his forehead. “Oh I’m having flashbacks.” Dean shuddered a bit before coming up behind you to wrap his arms around you. “When are you gonna stop being mad at me?”

“When you replace the apple pie and vanilla bean ice cream you inhaled after I’d told you that I’ve been craving it.” You turned around in his arms and glared into his eyes. “Your son isn’t making me crave anything weird, the least you can do is not eat his fudging pie!”

“Okay babe, I know you’re mad. And I understand, - I do -  but…” Dean furrowed his eyebrows. “Why are you censoring yourself with pagan god-approved curse words? Our bun is still in the oven, she can’t hear your dirty girl mouth.”

You smacked his chest and smirked up at him. He began to sway you both back and forth in the middle of the kitchen. “Actually Winchester, he can hear us talking just fine at this stage. But that’s not why I’m watching my language.”

Grinning, he said, “Oh really? Well you wanna share with the rest of the class, sweetheart?”

You shrugged. “Just trying to kick the habit of using the fuck word,” your hand covered his mouth when he opened it to interrupt you, “among other bad language words. The last thing I want is for our son’s first words to be ‘Son of a bitch!’” He chuckled and tried to spin you. “You know there isn’t any music playing, right?”

He shrugged. “So? Pretend we’re that couple from that sappy movie you roped me into watching that one day.”

Dean pulled you back to his chest and began to hum a song you didn’t recognize. “You mean The-“

His lips were on yours instantly. “Just shut up and dance with me.”

You laughed. “You just don’t want to admit that you actually liked-“

“Y/n!”


“Dammit Dean!” Bobby helped Sam guide Dean as best he could into the house and onto the couch. “What the hell happened!”

Dean coughed when he tried to laugh lightly. “You cussed… sweetheart.”

“If you weren’t possibly dying, I might kill you Dean.” You told Sam to get the first aid kit, whiskey, and some towels. “What happened, Bobby!”

“Honey it was something unheard of. No one could have figured out it was two wendigos, they just don’t pair up like that.” He sighed, putting more pressure to the claw marks on Dean’s chest. “Your idiot husband got cocky.”

You were worrying over Dean when Sam came back with Cas in tow. “Even better than a first aid kit.”

Dean groaned. “Can I still have the whiskey?” The light from Cas’s grace brightened the room. You moved and wrapped your arms tightly around Dean’s neck, his hand went to the back of your head to pull you closer. He kissed your head. “I’m okay, sweetheart.” He looked up at Cas. “Thanks for saving my ass… Again.”

He nodded to his friend. “Dean you were very lucky…. Let us hope that your daughter is not as foolish,” the angel muttered.

Your head whipped over to face him. “Say that again Cas?”

He was confused before it dawned on him. “You didn’t know… I apologize-“

Instantly you were hugging him. “Don’t you dare apologize. It’s a girl… You’re sure?”

“Well yes, I’m more than fairly certain.” He smiled softly and reached out to your growing bump. “She is… content. I would say happy, but she does not yet know such a feeling.”

You cleared your throat to help keep yourself together, but the tears in your eyes gave you away. “Thank you, Cas.”

He smiled at you and then at Dean. “Congratulations. I am happy for the two of you.” The fluttering of his wings indicated the angel’s departure.

Sam hugged his brother, patting him on the back. He looked at him for a moment before grinning widely. “We were right!”

“I know!”

Bobby just shook his head. “Idjits.” He gave you a one-armed hug. “I’m happy for you, honey. I know you were banking on a boy but… Hell I’m getting a granddaughter! I don’t even care that it means the tweedles were right.”

“Can I tell you a secret?” You whispered. “Me either.” You laughed and he bid you all goodnight.

Sam hugged you and told you congratulations before going upstairs for a shower, and finally you and Dean were alone. “Hi…”

He sat on the couch and pulled you into his lap, kissing you fiercely. “Hi,” he said deeply.

“You feeling okay, sweetheart?”

“I’m so much more than okay right now. I’m fan-fudging-tastic.” He smirked at you.

You laid your head on his chest, soothed by his heart beating. “I hate how much I worry about you, and Sam. Especially now that I can’t be there to watch your backs… I know Bobby is more than capable, but-“

“It’s not the same.” He finished for you. “I get it, sweetheart. Ever since we first met and you told me you ‘Worked solo, because I don’t need any pretty boy hunters thinking they can boss me around.’

You chuckled. “You remember what you said to me?”

He nodded. “’You think I’m pretty?’

You smiled and kissed his jaw. “Prettiest damn hunter there is.”

“Do you even own a mirror?” He scoffed.

You kissed his jaw before falling into a comfortable silence. After a while you said, “I love you, Dean Winchester.”

He kissed your head. “I love you too, Y/n Winchester.” His hand went to your belly. “And I love our tiny bean too. It wouldn’t have mattered if it was a boy or girl, I just want her to be safe and happy…” His voice trailed off as his mind wandered.

You knew he was worrying himself about how to protect the both of you. The only conclusion he could ever think of was to get out of the life, but trouble always followed the Winchester name, and you’d be back to square one.

You leaned up to kiss his lips. “Come back to me, Dean. We’ll worry about it another day.”

He sighed. “Okay.”

“So…” You grinned, trying to lighten the mood. “Since we know it’s a girl, I was thinking about the name Ally-“

“If you finish that sentence, I’m breaking every copy of that movie I see from here on out.”

So chapter 93 brought up a a nice little detail that I didn’t even notice while reading it the first time. In the panels where Reiner is taking with the younger warrior cadets we get this small shot of a mysterious person seemingly looking at Reiner at the others. Normally I would just brush this off as some random Eldians just strolling by, however isayama took the time to give this mysterious person more detail then any of the other silhouettes of random characters in the background. Not to mention that this mysterious person is taking a good amount of space in the panel.

But the biggest reason why people are paying close attention to this seemingly mysterious person, is the fact that his/her armband is placed on the wrong side. I feel like isayama purposely showed us this detail to warn us that this character is someone we must pay close attention to.

Now on hel who this person might be, there are a number of people who are saying that this is Eren. Which makes sense since the behind of this persons back seems like Eren with long hair, but then I started questioning that theory and found some points that really don’t add up.

For one, why would the SC take a huge gamble in sending him to a far away land where he could be killed at any moment and send their biggest protection against the Marley to the enemy camp. Not to mention that Reiner would immediately recognize him upon first look, unless he’s wearing some kind of disguise but then again he never seemed like the type of person to be able to play the spy.

Also, there’s also the question of how he (or anyone one of his friends who might be with him) got to the Marley nation in the first place. Zeke makes a point is saying earlier in the chapter that the research ships they sent to paradise island were all destroyed. If somehow The people of paradise were able to steal one of their ships and use t to Infiltrate the Marley, then zeke would have mentioned that atleast one of their ships survived and check to see if they were able to salvage information from their failed operation. They would immediately notice that the crew that came back from paradise island aren’t the same people that left and notice they were imposters.

Now the only way I could see it being Eren is if he had someone on their side that new the ins and outs of the Marley nation and was able to help them secretly infiltrate their base. The only person I know that even has that kind of knowledge…

Is Annie.

Now I know I know this has to be like the 100 time where Annie was predicted to return only for it to turn it not true, but this is just a theory and it’s one I’m putting out there. It would also mean that we"d see Annie return Yeeeeeee

Anyhow I’m curious how the upcoming chapters are gonna play out and the reveal on who the mystery person is.

Dean Winchester had always loved reading his book. The book about his soulmate, the only connection between them. At young age, he was confused as why her parents were so strict. She needed to run, and swim and at age seven, his soulmate got a knife for her birthday. But what was weird was that she didn’t seem to mind. Dean soon understood she was a hunter, just like he was becoming. That didn’t scare him. He knew she, as his soulmate, would be able to handle herself. 


When Dean got older, he loved reading about her even more. She was really smart and good, she worked mostly alone and loved llama’s, which he thought was pretty amusing. He liked how she always was pretty happy, no matter what her injuries or the job was. The book said her smile was one to die for. He liked how she could flirt with boys, just for information. He liked how she was funny and drank tea with alcohol and drank tequila after each job. He fell in love with her, slowly and not because of her looks. He didn’t know how she would look. He hoped she was pretty. 


Dean and Sam were at a motel, there was a job close by, but they wouldn’t make it there until tomorrow. Sam was in the shower, so Dean had a little bit time for him alone. Out of his bag, he took the already large book. Each chapter represented a year, and he was glad the book was so big, meaning she was still alive. The last few days, he hadn’t been able to read the book because of his research and the job. He had to catch up on a few days. 


Walking around, driving in a car. 

“I like chicken nuggets, but tart is better.” 

She winked at the guy, whose mouth hung open. He wasn’t used to girl that pretty hitting on him.

Her eyes  were tired, but this night would be sleepless, she would have to do research if she wanted to finish the job tomorrow. 


Dean grinned, this was how he knew her, totally random, yet very determent. She liked to get a move on things. 


Her boots were tight, she had checked that tree times already. Her dark shirt and pants were tight and easy to fight in. She took her bag and jumped in the jeep. The house was quiet, but she knew that the ghost of Julie could show up at any moment. Pain took over as something hit her in the back of her head. With a groan, she turned around, shotgun ready. She missed. She really needed to find that stupid box. 


After what seemed like hours of reading, Dean relaxed. She was safe, mildly hurt but safe. That was the one thing he always hoped. That she would be alive, breathing and mentally healthy. He knew how it was to lose someone you care about, and he couldn’t lose her, not before they had met. Dean wasn’t really afraid she would die on a job, she had proven how good she was plenty of times. 

“Reading about your soulmate?” Sam spoke and Dean looked up, Sams tone was slightly teasingly. 

“So what? Everyone does.” Dean stated, calm, unamused. He saw Sam grin slightly.


Y/n didn’t like reading about her soulmate. She had read too much over the pain he had been through. She had read about his mothers death, and her parents had explained her everything. They didn’t know what had killed her, but it was something supernatural. She had read about how his father wasn’t really a good father. She had read about him being hungry a lot because he gave his little brother more food. That broke her heart. She wasn’t one to pity, and she told herself she didn’t pity him, but she wished he had had a better childhood, at least. 


She walked out of the warm shower, her hair falling damp over her shoulders when she sat on her bed. Y/n really wanted to read her book, she always hoped she would read he was happy that day, even when he was happy for weeks, she would still hope he was happy. She hesitated. She always did. Swallowing hard, she took the book from the nightstand. The book felt heavy on her lap. 


He and his brother sneaked into the dark building, under the police tape to the house. His brother was first. The remains of the ghost where in the house, they only needed to find it before the ghost found them. They started from the basement, they had no clue where the body could be. He screamed, yelled for his brother to duck before firing. The ghost vanished, but they knew he would come back. He said that his brother needed to search upstairs, they didn’t have much time. He went downstairs, stairs made a lot of noise. His flashlight gave him some light. He opened doors, cabins, closets. But he noticed the newer wall. The bricks still had color. he yelled for his brother, not wanting him to be in more danger then needed. His brother stumbled it, gun ready. Together they broke down the wall, and an old corpse rolled out. Salt and burn. This job was done. 


Y/n wanted more information, she always wanted more. But she knew that she wouldn’t. She hoped they would meet soon. Y/n didn’t want to go to sleep, even though she was tired. So, longing for her soulmate, she read her favorite parts again. The parts where he was happy, where he had a reason to smile. That always made her heart warm. 


Dean and Sam Winchester sat in a diner, talking about the job. 

“So, you think it is a vengeful spirit?” Sam asked Dean, leaning in over the table. 

“Yes, I think it is. I mean, people disappearing near a forest? I checked it, and each year, in one week, this week, every night at least one person disappears. And that for seven days.” Dean took a sip out his cup. 

“Okay, this is a job. But where do we start?” Dean wanted to answer that question, but then something caught his eye. No, a someone. A young woman walked past. Her hair fell over shoulders, decoration her leather jacket. She had a very tight pair of jeans on, and high heels. Dean didn’t notice she stood slightly unstable on the shoes. When she stopped by a table, Dean saw her red lips, flirty smile and low cut tank top. The man she talked to asked her to sit, and Dean couldn’t tear his eyes away from her. Even though there was obvious flirting, she didn’t seen interested. He wondered why she sat by him. 

“Dean,” Sam started. “are you even listening?” Dean teared his eyes away from the beautiful woman. 

“Yes, of course I was.” 

—-

Only a few hours had passed, Dean would talk to a few people, and Sam, Sam would do some more research. Dean chose a house which was very close to the forest. It if was a spirit, then maybe they would know. He knocked on the door and was surprised when he saw the man the beautiful woman had flirted with. 

“Hello, I’m from the police. I wanted to ask you a few questions about last night disappearance.” Dean smiled and the man, a slight hint of envy in his eyes. 

“Come in.” He said and stepped aside. Inside the house it was cold, most things were dark and there were no flowers. he wouldn’t be surprised if he smelled death. 

Once Dean sat, he started to ask questions. until he couldn’t help it anymore. 

“So, you home alone? I mean if your girlfriend is here I would like to ask her a few questions.” Dean asked casually. 

“I don’t have a girlfriend.” the man almost snapped. 

“Easy there, I just thought you had because you are so gentle.” Dean gave the man a sarcastic smile, he had everything he needed.

things that piss me off (acne edition)


1) annoying people giving me useless advice - just yesterday a girl from my school came up to me and told me “hey listen, did you ever try using manuka honey for your face? it’s like 50 $ but it’s really good”(sidenote: she has clear skin) okay i get these ‘tips’ at least twice per day and they make me so frustrated like jesus i’ve used everything available in this universe oh my god do you think some honey is really going to help me? no

2) “you shouldn’t wear makeup it worsens your acne” how about no, it’s easy to say this, but if i were to go to school without makeup everyone would talk about my acne and i mean THE WHOLE SCHOOL + TEACHERS. it’s an easy thing to say when you have like 3 pimples but my confidence is already below zero so not wearing makeup would just throw me into a deep depression.

3) people talking me out of Accutane this happened when i was thinking about going on Accutane and i told my friend. all my friends went batshit crazy and proceeded to talk me out of it. i understand people caring about you but at the end of the day it’s my choice, and if i would go on Accutane it would be after lots and lots and even more hours of research. i know what i’m stepping into.

4) people just being ignorant and rude i once made the mistake of telling my friend that i had a good skin day and she just blurted out “you call that a good skin day? just kidding” and these kind of remarks really get to me. i don’t understand why some people feel the need to make somebody feel bad for themselves. what do you gain?? stop ok??

5) getting noticed and labeled only by your acne if you have ever had bad acne then you know the feeling of talking to a person a noticing their gaze glide to a bad pimple you have. or getting recognized as “the girl with reaaally bad acne” . yup, it’s the worst.

Miko reacting to a human friend saying they have a crush on Wheeljack or Bulkhead? Idunno if you take human character requests but I just think this would be such a fun thing to happen!

Miko

  • At first she’s kinda weirded out. Not by the fact you have a crush on an alien robot- Bulkhead and Wheeljack are kind of like her dads. 
  • She’s SO PUMPED and ready to play matchmaker! 
  • “Hey, Wheeljack! Have you noticed how badass y/n is?” “Bulky, guess who’s going dune-bashing with us!”
  • She’s a huge help, really. Not only does she know your crush well, but she also helps you research Cybertronian courting practices (or she pesters Ratchet to tell her.)
  • She has the utmost confidence in you! “You got this, y/n! Go get you your man- er, bot!”

What is ME culture/food?

Middle Eastern. I abbreviated it. This could mean any spectrum of things, esp. if we’re talking about cultural appropriation. Just as an example, my dad’s side of the family is Lebanese. My grandma sometimes makes dishes like stuffed grape leaves - literal grape leaves wrapped around ground beef and mint and stewed with a lamb shank. (Super delicious and my favorite food EVER, but slightly beside the point.) If she was going to model her fictional culture on a real one, I feel like she could’ve just… picked one? That sounds terrible, because it would still be cultural appropriation, but if she had included details like (for example) people in the Night Court - I don’t even know. She could’ve gone so many different directions. She could’ve chosen something from Indian culture and had them use rice or flatbread more than utensils, just as a random example - flatbread is something that appears in a lot of Middle Eastern and Mediterranean and even more food traditions (lavash, naan, pita, to name just a few). But in my opinion, she’s so focused on making the Night Court more “civilized” than the rest of Prythian (read:  white) that she wouldn’t even have considered that. So instead, we have “buttery green beans” in ACOWAR, and the highly descriptive “chicken” in ACOMAF… If I were Feyre, that would not be food that made me feel alive.

I mean, at the end of the day, it comes down to that I feel really, really strongly about food in cultural tradition, and I feel like SJM tried to make that part of her worldbuilding - but didn’t go far enough. It feels like she didn’t do any research, or any - dare I say - actual thinking about how to go about this. I would’ve LOVED to see it mentioned more, especially as Feyre not only notices the food several times, BUT HAS A REASON TO - she’s been starving for years. Of course she would notice the food. Think Harry Potter at the Weasley’s. I can’t tell you how happy it would’ve made me if SJM had described, in detail, what made the Night Court’s food… different. What about it made Feyre feel awake. Is it heavy? Is it full of spices? (It’s implied that it is, at least at that one restaurant Feyre goes to in ACOMAF.) Feyre describes it as simple compared to the “overwrought” food of the Spring Court. What makes it overwrought? It would be such a good character detail if Feyre paid attention to the food. She can’t eat mortal food after tasting the food in Prythian. Were there fresh fruits and vegetables in the Spring Court that she’d never tasted before? Does the Night Court eat fish a lot since they’re on the coast? (At least I think they are.) What do the titles of the different Courts have to do with the food there? Does Lucien miss the food of the Autumn Court? I NEED TO KNOW.

*cough*

Anyways, I would have to do a lot more research to provide more specific examples of Middle Eastern (and Mediterranean, for that matter - I can go Lebanese, Greek, and Italian, but that’s about it) food and culture, since it isn’t one culture, of course. SJM would, too. But she didn’t - she reverted to food that I assume she knew.

White-people food.

And I yawned and turned the page without having any clearer idea about the Night Court traditions, realizing that SJM just skimmed enough aesthetic off the top of ME culture to give Feyre and Mor an excuse to wear over-sexualized clothes and give her bat boys a tan.

(Note:  this was probably way more than you were looking for, nonnie. I got a little carried away. Hope this helps anyways!)

You know, I always thought that Autistic!Damian was just a simple headcanon that people made just for the sake of diversity. But after doing some minor researches on the symptoms of autism (specifically children) I couldn’t help but notice how a fair-share of them could be applied to Damian.

For instance, here are some symptoms I found online that I feel Damian had displayed previously or I think it would be in-character for him to have (P.S: I only found these online so I may not be 100% sure if they’re correct):

  • Inability to relate to other children or adults
  • Lack of awareness of danger
  • Difficulty dealing with changes to routine (you can clearly see that in the Nobody arc from TheNew52)
  • Having a speech pattern (ex: calling most people including his family members by their last names or his famous “T.t”)
  • Having a decent rote memory
  • Being bluntly honest
  • Responding adversely to physical affection (this one is more fanon but I can still see canon Damian being like this too)
  • Frequent temper tantrums 
  • Improper/insensitive questions or statements (ex: telling his father that honoring his dead parents is a waste of time)
  • Being preoccupied with a few narrow interests (aside from Vigilantism I can only think of him drawing and taking care of his pets? and that’s it?)

Now I’m by no means an expert in autism nor do I believe that you have to be Autistic if any of these things apply to you, but still, when one character showcase so many symptoms of having autism then it really isn’t to farfetched to take into perceptive that Damian Wayne may have autism? at least that’s how I see it.

Question...

How many of us knew exactly what we were getting into when we signed up to be foster parents? I would venture to guess the only ones are those who were former foster children themselves. Maybe some of the case managers that also foster, but even then, I would venture to guess that the experience of actually doing it differs from working inside the system in a different capacity. 

Even if you read all the blogs, do all the research and “know” what you are getting into (as I and many others did), nothing prepares you for the flood of conflicting emotions - the love and fierce protectiveness you feel for kids in your care coupled with the helplessness to actually protect them in the way you want, the overwhelming fear that kids could be moved at a moments notice and that sometimes you are really the only one looking out for the kids best interest but you are powerless to do anything about it. And the grief and the anger when a child you have cared for for a long time is suddenly, or not suddenly, removed. Its like ripping off a bandaid versus slowly pealing it off for 10 days or longer. Wanting to get the incredible pain over with so that all of you can move on is not a matter of being inconvenienced, it is a matter of grief. 

Yes, we signed up for it. But that is a lot of emotion to hold, especially when you are doing it alone, and most of us here use this forum to process this very difficult journey, and the intense emotions that you are forced to hold spill out on the screen. Venting on here about the fucked up system is what allows many of us to turn around and face the kids and continue on and be the best parent, the best foster parent we can be. 

MC With Disorders

[Trigger Warning for Borderline Personality Disorder, Depression, and Anxiety] 

If you have any of these disorders, feel free to send a message to me. I may not be a therapist, but having someone listen can be the greatest medicine sometimes. Remember, there is always light after the tunnel, it just might be dim at times.

Yoosung

- He was always a little bit worried about you, since you went from being so bright to so depressed

- It wasn’t much of a surprise when he learnt that you had depression, anxiety, and borderline personality disorder

- Yoosung had never had issues like that before, just a bit of anxiety from too much schoolwork 

- But he was willing to drop anything and everything if he heard that you were in pain or in tears

- He did his best to hide any sharp objects from you, paranoid that you would do something rash while he was away

- Yoosung was more than happy to stay in the same room with you for as long as possible 

- “I’ll work hard to make you smile as brightly as you did before!”

Zen

- Zen went to the psychiatrist with you, and surprise surprise he had intense narcissism 

- But he was incredibly worried about the many disorders you were diagnosed with

- He had no experience with most of the disorders, so he had to search them up and study about them

- Zen would totally overdo it by doing every single thing the websites recommended

- Assuring you that he would stay, making you eat regularly and healthily, making you sleep way too much, and just generally supporting you

- When he heard that self harm and suicidal thoughts were part of depression, he refused to let you go out of his line of vision, even at work

- “Babe, no matter what, I’ll be here for you every step of the way to recovery! ” 

Jaehee

- Jaehee was no therapist, but she knew that all three of your conditions were serious

- She took you to therapy every week, and reassured you that she wouldn’t abandon you

- She began planning healthier meals, and stroked your hair as you fell asleep, encouraging you to sleep more

- She heard that having a daily schedule helped depression patients, and wrote a rough schedule for you every night

- Jaehee also took away any sharp objects, worried that you might try to inflict pain on yourself 

- “You can do it, I believe in you. Go on, defeat those 

Jumin

- Jumin had no experience at all about mental disorders, but he was more than willing to do some research

- He was shocked at the large list of symptoms, wondering how you dealt with all of them every day

- He decided to keep you near his office, in case you had a panic attack or a sudden lapse of sadness 

- He would search up good dietary habits, and encouraged you to go out on walks

- He tried to be more understanding than usual, knowing that he was often judged by this man for being emotionless

- Jumin would be ready to risk anything and spend any amount of money if it meant that you would recover

- “I will do everything I can to give you happiness again”

Seven

- Depression, anxiety AND borderline personality disorder? Man, that’s a lot

- But all jokes aside, he would totally support you through it

- He did have a bit of depression, so he knew exactly what to say to cheer you up

- And it wasn’t like Seven had a normal sleep schedule or great concentration, so he could somewhat relate to anxiety, sleeping beside you and forcing himself to sleep more for your sake

- He would promise to never leave you, constantly staying by your side, and even helping you calm down from emotional highs

- Seven definitely won’t let you hurt yourself either 

- “You, yes you behind the screen. Do you hear me? If you’re suffering, cutting yourself or killing isn’t a way to stop the pain. It just spreads the pain onto others. Open up, no matter how hard it is, and become strong enough to defeat the disorders. I’m cheering for you.”

anonymous asked:

Hi! So, where to start....? I'm an INTP (female), and I've noticed I identify a lot with INTJs. You guys are pretty cool. There was only one time I've had any real conflict with an INTJ. It went along the lines of this: "Oh, so you have an idea? NO, NO, NO, you're WRONG!". Very interesting. How would you describe our differences? (Social interaction, thought process etc.) I could do a bunch of research on this, of course, but I wanted to hear from an actual INTJ.

Hi :D Actual INTJ here. I’m delighted to receive your question.

The answer in short: INTPs and INTJs, Discuss the best management of $10 million lottery winnings.

INTJs: Budget it. Pay off debts, save, and invest, with a small spending allowance.

INTPs: You know with $10 Billion we could buy the Bahamas. But that’s just considering net worth.

INTPs and INTJs have a lot in common, being descriptively both introverted, intuitive, and thinking; however, they have opposite functions, creating differences and possible friction.

1. INTPs troll for fun. INTJs troll with disclaimers. (Ne vs. Ni)

INTP: “We should use the lottery money to buy a bunch of slaves.”

Me: o.e

INTPs throw out ideas, looking for a fun reaction and hopefully an interesting conversation. Their Ne seeks novelty, but when unfiltered by the Fi of an xNFP, wanders without regard for practical morality. They do not feel the need to clarify that they do not support slavery. I enjoy random INTP discussions, but as an INTJ, it’s not my habit to initiate them. 

INTJs make jokes, but they will indicate this clearly with their tone or an explicit disclaimer. This is Te/Fi at work: an orderly communication of INTJs’ definite values. We don’t want our values to be misunderstood. INTJs are not in the habit of having random discussions for their own sake, being goal- (Te) and vision- (Ni) oriented.

HENCE your experience with an INTJ squashing your idea. We take things too seriously, communicate with such effectiveness, and demand more order. (Te) We may have to be taught that you aren’t serious and to just enjoy a lively hypothetical discussion.

2. INTPs diagnose, INTJs prescribe. INTPs pick, INTJs plan.

I illustrate and discuss this Ti vs. Te difference in this post:

http://mbti-hodgepodge.tumblr.com/post/69925608102/ti-vs-te-a-conversational-example 

3. INTPs have a mind for details. INTJs have a laser for a mind. (Ti vs. Te)

Because the INTPs have their dissecting Ti and exponential Ne, they can produce endless details, complications, and relevancies. This is why INTPs are not often quick to speak as multiple ideas struggling to escape the mouth, as well as the selection of perfect words to describe these particular details. This potential vortex of intricacies often results in unproductivity.

NiTe is not like this. INTJs distill a thing into a single, pure essence and defined as succinctly as possible. Then we use our Te to cut away fat and form goals. Conceptually, INTJs X-ray to the heart, target-lock, and follow a clear plan to that target. We have a limited tolerance for details because it can interfere with productivity, while INTPs fall much farther down the rabbit hole of complexity.

 For more in-depth, I’ll point you to this ask I answered:

http://mbti-hodgepodge.tumblr.com/post/100123253359/hi-ive-been-scored-as-both-intj-and-intp

Thanks for your question! :)

MY DILEMMA

Hey Tumblr staff and support, I love the website you’ve made! Don’t get me wrong, I love the microblogging format that allows me to post my music stuff or pictures or long text rants like this one! And despite there being bad apples, I still like the community this website has garnered.

But I have a hypothetical situation for you guys.

Let’s say HYPOTHETICALLY I wanted to rebrand this blog a bit. I wanted to drop the “blog” and just have my URL be a brisk clean “chongo.tumblr.com”. Now in this HYPOTHETICAL situation, I would have tried this about six months ago, only to learn that the URL was taken. The user hadn’t posted in six years, but after looking over the guidelines I read your policy on account dormancy which states “Some long-unused URLs may eventually be released as part of our policy on account dormancy, which only applies to accounts that have not been logged into for over one year”. Additionally, if a blog is terminated, you can’t claim its URL. This is a completely fair policy and I respect it. Upon further HYPOTHETICAL research, I would read that if an account is dormant, you all don’t terminate the blog, rather you move it to a backup URL and release the original URL. Hypothetically.

So a HYPOTHETICAL week ago, let’s say I noticed the URL “chongo.tumblr.com” was empty, and nothing was there. Upon some searching I found the old one at “chongo-backup.tumblr.con” (URL changed to protect the innocent. If you do find the backup URL please do not @, message, send asks, or otherwise perturb this person).

So I then HYPOTHETICALLY try to change my URL. And it doesnt work. I hypothetically contact support and ask what the deal is, and they tell me all the policies you saw above. I mention to them that I know the policies, and that the original owner of the URL was moved to “chongo-backup” and so it should be open. They reply saying that “chongo-backup” was recently active, but still holds the “chongo-backup” moniker rather than “chongo”

So hypothetically, what the heck? If he’s active, should you change him back to his original username? If not, then why make the URL “chongo” just an empty void that cant be claimed. If you moved the guy entirely to “chongo-backup” then isn’t that the moving you were talking about?

Like, if you guys just hypothetically moved “chongo-backup” back to “chongo” I wouldnt be this mad! Heck, I’m not even mad because I cant hypothetically change my URL! I’m mad because I’ve been trying to contact you guys with questions about this baffling hypothetical situation of a ghost URL that is just a wasteland that no one can claim except for a person who you moved (which is part of releasing the URL) and isn’t even a terminated blog. I don’t care if I don’t get the URL. You could tell me the URL got eaten by sharks for all I care or that it belongs to someone else now. If you just help me make sense of this situation of inconsistent policy, I’ll calm down.

Hypothetically, of course.
