RP Connections - Sunny

Name: Synne Eira Tove a.k.a. Sunny

Race: Midlander, Hyur

Sex: Female

Occupation: Woods Witch, Magitek Engineer, Troublemaker and Glass Cannon

Personality Type (laid back, militant, high strung, etc.): Sunny is pretty laid back and relaxed. Not a whole lot of things upset her or get her riled and it takes someone truly special to get under her skin. She almost always has a smile on her face and a kind work for friend or stranger alike.

What does your character look like?:

Favorite Hobby: Tinkering around with Alagan and Garlean technologies. She’s always happy to be working on a new project or challenging herself to expand her knowledge base.

Motto they live by: ‘I am not what I have done. I am what I have overcome.’

Favorite type of Environment: The forest or the ocean will always be Sunny’s favorite place to be. Doesn’t matter if it’s sunshine or storming, those are her quiet places and the one’s she can find solace in.

Best Friends:
The Pack
Vielynne {@mischiefs-mistress}
Revarik {@valanthius-xiv}
Caelric {@charm-in-spades}

Who They Admire: Anyone who can overcome their darkness and stand in the light. Anyone who’s not ashamed to let their scars show. Anyone who has overcome adversity with a soft heart and come out the other side better for their battles.

What they hope to do 10 years from now: Staying alive is probably her biggest goal right now. In ten years, Godswilling, she’ll still be with Caelric, still around her Pack and still loving life to the fullest.

Are they single? If not, who is their spouse/partner/life mate?: Caelric Spades 

{Art by @sephiramy}

What do they look for in friends?: Humor, tenacity, morality and honor. It doesn’t matter to her if you’re an assassin, a witch, a heretic or a zealot – if you have what she’s looking for, it’ll be impossible for her not to love you.

If they walked into a bar and saw a talking slug, what would their reaction be?: She would probably be so enthused to meet a talking slug that she’d hang out in that bar all damn day!


Usual Playtime: I’m a hit or miss kind of player. I work 12-9pm (PST) Monday through Friday, so my game time usually comes on the weekends. I do have Skype and Dischord, however, and am always down to RP throughout the day and meet new peeps!

Server: Balmung

FC/Guild: Crescent {@crescent-ffxiv}

Looking for (friends, ships, hate ships, shady connections, etc.): Absolutely everything. Villains, heroes, friends and frenemies!

This gif was inspired by the story of Caroline Herschel.

Born in 1750, Caroline suffered from typhus and a mother who treated her as a servant. She eventually escaped the servant life and joined her older brother in England.  William was a professional musician, and after middling success in music he turned his (and Caroline’s) attention to astronomy.

The hobby of astronomy turned into a profession for both of them, and Caroline became the first woman to receive a salary for her contributions to science. (discovering a whole lot of astronomical stuff along the way)

I came upon the story in the book linked below, which was a long and rich read.

The Age of Wonder: How the Romantic Generation Discovered the Beauty and Terror of Science.

My relationship does not define me,

Yes, I have a boyfriend.

Yes, I spend a lot of time with him.

Yes, I love him.

But no, this relationship is not my entire existence.

I was a whole person long before he came into my life, and I’ll remain just as whole without him.

I had interests, hobbies and friends who I created all on my own without his influence, and while these may change over the course of the relationship I will still have them when he is gone.

My life does not revolve around his schedule, his likes, or who he wants me to be. 

He is simply my boyfriend, a person I enjoy loving and spending time with.

  2. If they are human, have they ever questioned man kinds place in the universe? If non human, do they ever judge humanity on it’s nature?
  3. Did they live in the same place their whole lives or did they move around a lot?
  4. What is the name of their childhood best friend, and do they still hang out with them?
  5. Do they have any siblings, if so, how many and do they get along?
  6. What attracted them to their first crush? (if they had one)
  7. How is their relationship with their parents?  (in the case of non-human characters like robots, their creators)
  8. Who is the most important person in their life (could be a relative, romantic interest or a teacher)
  9. Do they have any weird hobbies?
  10. What is a talent they which they didn’t have?
  11. Are they on a strict budget or are they impulse buyers?
  12. Would they do something morally wrong to save someone they care about?
  13. Do they struggle with any disabilities, physical or mental, and how?
  14. What is their worst habit?
  15. Did they ever experience a major personalty shift, if so, what triggered it?
  16. Have they ever spent time questioning their gender identity and sexuality?
  17. If they do not have any kind of super natural abilities, what kind of powers would they have? If they do, how would they be different if they did not have those powers?
  18. What events have changed their lives?
  19. Are they a lover or a fighter (or both)?
  20. Would you like your OCs to meet your friends’ OCs and do you think they’d get along?

Nicknames: Aster, Stratos
Is a combo of Science Sans and Outer Sans

Age: 16
Roommate: Karma
Closest friends: Haz, Bobble, North, Charamelon
Hobbies: Astronomy, Alien hunting,
Likes: Sci-fyi, Undertrek tv show, star charts, Constellations, star gazing
Dislikes: Mystical nonsense, surprises, doing laundry,

Aster, also known as Stratos is studying to be an astronomer. He likes making star charts and maps of the sky. He spends a lot of time outside gazing at the stars and trying to figure out why they don’t follow any sort of patern. With science! He wants to make a map of the stars for the whole omega timeline one day. He really likes aliens and hopes to make an alien friend one day. (Because of shenanigans he thinks the anons are aliens sending him cryptic messages.) He also spends a lot of time arguing with karma on the merits of science vs fortune telling and why science is better. He gets mistaken for a Tv show or gameshow host a lot and it drives him up the wall.

i always laugh when i see hannibal lecter on those “top scariest horror character” lists because like the guy wears sweaters??? and cries at opera??? like sure he’s an asshole who does a lot of fucked up shit and i can’t say i wanna meet him in real life but he plays the theremin i mean come on

Harry and Muggles

It’s funny, because the more I think about Harry and his experiences in the Muggle world, the more surprised I am that he’s so relaxed about it.  

The Dursleys treat him appallingly.  Aunt Marge despises him.  The school ignores Dudley’s gang bullying him, and the Headmistress writes home to lament about Harry’s behaviour, not Dudley’s.  It’s mentioned that Dudley and Piers have a ‘favourite hobby’ of hitting Harry, and the rest of the gang enjoy Harry Hunting.  Mrs Figg is the best of a bad lot, because she’s merely described as being mad and having a house smelling of cabbage - and it turns out, she’s a squib.

The most heartbreaking line is:  At school, Harry had no one. 

In fact, in his whole ten years in the Muggle world, the only nice interactions Harry has with anyone occur when wizarding people stumble across his path.

Given all that, it’s therefore somewhat surprising that Harry is so well adjusted when it comes to wizarding and Muggle relations.  Not at any point does he balk at the idea of integration and go, “Oh my days, Muggles are insane!  They treat wizards like dirt!”

I suppose it would be a very different series if he had.

I can just imagine McGonagall raising an eyebrow at Dumbledore and saying, “I told you not to leave him with those particularly awful Muggles…”

That One Moment

I’m very grateful to the Tumblr Photography Community for the opportunity to share my photographs. Going out with my camera and taking the shots though is usually a solitary endeavor. Every once in awhile my wonderful, long-suffering wife will accompany me, but usually I am by myself. That one moment for me, was spending a week in Italy with a friend who takes this hobby as seriously (or even more seriously) as I. We (and our wives) had a great time and I learned a lot. I’ve already posted a cropped version of this photo. Here is the whole thing.


Thank you for sharing “That one moment” 2016 with us!

PWS - Photos Worth Seeing

So there are some very lovely people who have commented on my last post. Thank you all for taking the time to do so. 

I’m not going to delete my blogs - at least, not this one or my Phelps blog. For one, I know how much time and effort went into them both, although the main reason is that a few people have mentioned how my blogs have helped them in tough times. That means a hell of a lot to me, as that is the whole reason I started blogging on here myself. 

When I joined Tumblr, I was so ill that posting and reblogging photos etc was about all I could manage. Thankfully, my health has improved so that I am able to leave the house maybe once or twice a week, and I have also been able to do a few bits and bobs of my various craft hobbies. I guess that’s why I’m not on here as much, and also perhaps a subconscious part of that is not wanting to be somewhere that reminds me of just how very ill I was a few years back. 

I’m waffling now, but the main point is that I’ll probably still be logging in from time to time to see what I’m missing. I’ll also re-open my asks in case anyone needs to contact me.

Thanks guys. You’re all amazing.

30 day summer study challenge - xvii/xxx

advice for new studyblrs

Hey lovelies! So today’s challenge was to list down some advice for new studyblrs/things I wish I knew when I was starting out. Quite a bit of what’ll be mentioned here has probably already been mentioned by other studyblrs, but let’s get to it! ヾ(❀╹◡╹)ノ゙

  • Make an introduction post - this is super important guys and admittedly a step I forgot to do oops! It let’s the community know that there’s a newcomer + get’s your studyblr out there. Tell us about yourself! From the basics like your year level to your hobbies and interests, we’d love to hear them! Tbh it helps a whole lot with my next tip! Also!! If you’re like me and have had a studyblr for MONTHS but never made an intro post, don’t hesitate to make one! It’s never too late!
  • Make friends! - this is probably one of the friendliest tumblr communities you will ever find, so don’t be afraid to reach out to the people here! If you’re shy, try participating in some ask games, or you can comment on original content! Don’t know what to say? Find studyblrs that share the same interests you do - I’m ridiculously awkward, but finding studyblrs who like the same things you do make most of that awkwardness/shyness disappear!
  • Make original content - while reblogging content is what helps inspire + keep the studyblr community going, remember that you have things you can contribute too! There are lots of things for you to contribute: you can add in pictures of you studying, your notes, or your bullet journal; you can make masterposts or give advice; you can even make motivational graphics or printables if you ave access to graphic design software/websites! Go crazy! If you don’t know where to start, try out some studyblr challenges - like the 100 days of productivity, the monthly challenges, or the one I’m doing right now! - since they encourage you to put out original content everyday! 
  • Don’t be afraid to tag other studyblrs - if you’re a new studyblr, getting original content noticed can be tricky. But a lot of studyblrs have a tag they track (I personally track #catstudies), so you can include them in your tags to give your posts more exposure! You can also tag things #studyblr or #studyspo
  • Play around with your theme + tagging system - this is something that is honestly super fun AND makes your studyblr more *aesthetically pleasing* °˖✧◝(⁰▿⁰)◜✧˖° It’ll help set the mood for your blog and helps you learn a bit about coding if you want to hardcore customize things! In case anyone’s curious, my current theme is by @shythemes, while the updates tab is by @felinum, and they both have really lovely themes I see often in the studyblr community, along with @sorrism and @acuite! I also recommend setting up a navigation page/tagging system to keep your posts organized + easy to find! 

I hope this helps you lovelies out! Never hesitate to drop me a message if you have any questions or just want to chat! 

A bit to my thoughts on art post

Some of you might have misunderstood what I tried to say. At least I got a lot of notes on this.  I won’t give up on art, I will continue doing it. Just not as intensively as I did before (for example with comics), and I meant the whole thing in real life. I am publishing comics, and I will stop that, and so on… I mean doing it regularely. And I gave up on finding a job with art in real life. That is all, I will continue as a hobby artist, I just won’t take it as serious as I did before.  So I won’t vanish from here, haha.

Bless! Also thank you for the comments. :,D I read them… But I don’t really want to talk about this more, so I don’t answer. But thank you all.

A first date with Cable McCrory would involve:

  • Something real lowkey or fun. Maybe getting coffee at a cheap coffee shop or going to a museum and just joking around with each other
  • Cable isn’t the type to be super nervous for a first date. She acts just like herself the whole time
  • And by acting like herself, she’ll be making a sarcastic joke every three minutes
  • You’ll probably end up staying out a lot later than you intended
  • Spending time with Cable just makes the time fly by because you both are having a lot of fun and laughing together
  • Highkey there’s probably hand-holding, or at least walking really close to each other
  • There’s a lot of talking, mostly about your jobs and hobbies. But it isn’t awkward or feels necessary to get to knew each other better. It just kinda comes out and you two are having conversations about each other hobbies
  • Cable would probably talk about her job a lot because she thinks it’s just about the coolest thing in the world
  • The night might or might not end with a kiss. It really just depends on the mood

(Fun and completely irrelevant fact: I plotted this out for a week on Excel.)

I found them because of Exit Tunes Presents ACTORS’ KaiMike, and stayed because their friendship gives me hope in the world (lol) Seriously, though. Egu famously gets along with senpai through inviting them out to drinks, and OnoYuu does not drink alcohol. OnoYuu is good enough in soccer that his plan A was to go pro, and one of Egu’s long-standing childhood traumas is soccer.

Despite their differences in tastes and hobbies and a whole lot of other stuff (…fashion sense…), they still made Team YuuTaku as their independent project together, they still hang out together, they’re still each other’s good friend. Which I think is really great.

(Further note: while I did my best to at least sort this by year, there’s a big chance I got some dates wrong - like in large franchises they didn’t join at the same time, for example Yu-gi-oh. In this case I just went with a year one of them joined in, depending on what I thought fit best.)


First day of drum practice. Just me and my S/O hanging out on her bed after. My teacher said I’m a fast learner.

Almost 1.5 years in on my HRT and things simply make sense. A lot has changed. More than I thought. I had this “vision” of what I’d be on the other side of transitioning, and let me tell you: I had no idea. I’ve just been along for the ride this whole time, and I’m surprised every day.

Loving my body. Loving my hobbies. Loving my company.

downhillcarver  asked:

I want to learn more about May! Does she have any hobbies or talents?

well i dont really have a whole lot about her, she works in a bookstore and one of thoes people who are really snobby about “oh i read REAL books” but other than that i dont have a whole lot of info about her 

Ahhh!!!!! ok this is the neatest thing ever, I’ve literally had this account for less than a week and I already have 100 followers!!!! This probably sound stupid because a lot of people on here that I follow have like 1000+ followers but I am so blessed that you guys actually enjoy my content and what I write.I love writing so much, it’s honestly my passion. I’m Always writing songs or book ideas or poems and to be able to channel a hobby I enjoy in to a fandom I love and produce content that people actually like reading is insane!!!!!

Bad Bob has three hobbies that are not hockey related. 

1: Golf. Dude just loves golf. He likes to say that it’s something about holding the club that reminds him of his time on the ice, but the truth is, he just loves the peace. The long walks, the calm before the swing. It’s nothing like hockey and he’s knees appreciate it. 

2: MMO’s. He loves online gaming. He never really got to play a lot when he was younger - his whole life was hockey. But when he retired he was at a complete loss. He started with Farmville. Then Alicia bought him WoW because she couldn’t take one more facebook request, and the nice boy at GameStop told her that it was popular. Bob loves it. He’s in a guild. No-one has ever heard of hockey - but they know him. He’s DadBobZ and when it’s raining outside, his joints don’t ache as much when he’s in his ‘office’ with a beer and his headset on. 

3: Reading. He’s a member of a ladies reading circle. Alicia joined once a few years back but got bored of the first book half way through and Bob picked it up. It’s supposed to be ladies only, but they let Bob in on it because he’s so enthusiastic about the romances they read - and he’s genuinely interested in what everyone’s kids and grandkids are up to. When Jack overdosed it was these women who helped him. They told him about kids and friends who had troubles too - the ones that made it and the ones that didn’t. It took Bob a long time to talk about Jack without a sad expression, but in time he was telling everyone about something Jack said when he visited. 

Alicia has three hobbies that are not fashion related. 

1: Craft Brewing. She bought Bob one of those ‘brew your own’ kits one year, and although he always swore he was going to do it, he never did. It sat in the garage for a year before she figured ‘fuck it’ and gave it a go. She loved it, and Bob has had bottle stickers made for her. Screw Ewe Boo Ales. She can’t remember where the name came from (they were trying out the first batch and it was a little stronger that she was expecting and both her and Bob woke up the next morning with killer headaches and a piece of paper with ‘Screw Ewe Boo’ written on it.)

2: She’s a huge Star Trek fan. She’s one of the fandom elders who remembers (and still owns) a few of the underground zines that used to make their way through circles of fans. She’s got a Tumblr (Bob knows about it, he thinks it’s awesome, and Jack knows nothing) and she gets into serious Discourse over headcanons and plots. She likes the reboot but she’ll fight anyone who thinks that they are better the TOS. 

3: Boxing. This is slightly tied into fashion as she was invited to a lot of bouts when she was ‘super hot’ but she actually really loved the sport. Bob likes it too, which is good - but there is no doubt that Alicia is the big fan. She has her own punch bag in the indoor gym they have. It’s not pink - her tape is though. When Jack had his overdose, she spent hours punching the shit out of the bag, and for a few months her knuckles were bruised and bloodied. It was easier than going through all the ways she thought she failed. 

horizonthetransient  asked:

It's called the Umbridge effect- unpleasant people performing the whole sweetness thing to an absurd degree. I think it might have something to do with insanely misguided attempts at moral purity, or attempting to cover up the fact that the Umbridge is unpleasant, but I don't rightly know.

makes a lot of sense tbh, its like those people that are chaotic and punch each other for fun or have fucked up hobbies and interests  but when someone is being judgemental or a prick its a no-no except the opposite
