or i just have bad speaking skills

anonymous asked:

So, I kinda really want to make my own Ravenclaw/Hogwarts Houses Blog but I'm just not sure if I can do it bc I'm only learning english for 4 1/2 years now so of course it's bad and I'm not sure if I can do it? So, do you have any tips?

You should definitely go for it! 

a. the only way your english is going to improve is by using it regularly and running a blog will definitely help you to do that

b. your english is great anyway seriously it’s way better than any of my own language skills. don’t let native english speakers put you off- there’s loads of people who speak other languages on this website and I’m impressed every day at people’s ability to learn slang in a foreign language how do you do that?

tips wise, I’d say if you’re not confident in your english skills then remember tumblr is primarily an image based website! reblog ravenclaw art or create your own moodboards (pinterest is great for finding images btw). talk to other people, post original content, and just generally be a nice person. there aren’t many active house blogs around so find your niche and have fun!

ps also if you set up a ravenclaw blog let me know and I can add you to the blog recommendations list in the faq :)

↪Day 24: Why do you love Harry?
Well… It’s really hard to say, you know… It’s always hard to me to answer such a question but… He always makes me smile. Really, whenever I have a bad day he just sort of happen to post something that helps me feel better. I see him a little bit as a father figure… Like kind of? Ugh I don’t know how to voice it, so let’s forget about, okay? Also his passion influence me somehow, but that’s a topic for another day (day 30 to be exact xd). And the fact that he was a shy boy at first and then become a really good actor and dancer is inspiring me… Speaking of which he is inspiring me to be a better person everyday. Oh! And his dancing skills and how he loves what he’s doing! You can see it in his eyes everytime! ❤

For: @mimigemrose 

Imagine: Being a janitor in Dauntless and the leader of Dauntless, Eric, takes a liking for you.  

Today was another long day on the job, and instead of getting to go home at 4:00 pm, like every other day, you were assigned to clean up after the initiates. Yes, you work in Dauntless as a janitor, and no, it’s not the best job, but when you’re a transfer from Candor and have over 30 fears, it’s the best you can get, you’re just happy that you  got through initiation.

You walk into the training room at 6:00, just as the initiates are leaving, and you see him. Eric, the youngest Dauntless leader and one of your fellow transfers from your own initiation. He is hot as hell, and you may have had a crush on him during your initiation, but you also know that he is a complete asshole. Once all the initiates leave, you are left alone with Eric, and there he stands giving you sympathetic looks, like always. What is his fucking problem?

Eric’s POV

I see her walk in with all her equipment, and as always, I feel myself being drawn towards her. I know I shouldn’t be, I’m a fucking leader after all, and she’s just a lowly janitor. I can do so much better than a girl with over thirty fears, yet, I still want her, and I don’t know why.

I find myself staring at her again, like I always do, but this time, she’s staring right back, the only difference is that she looks very annoyed.

Y/N’s POV

That’s it, this constant staring needs to stop. You put down your mop and walk up to Eric, you look up at him, trying to make yourself seem intimidating, but fail.

“Do you need something?” Eric raises his eyebrows at you.

“Yes,” you say confidently, “I need you to stop staring at me as if I’m some fragile little girl who you feel bad for.”  

Eric smirks down at me as if to say ‘Oh really?’ so I continue, “Just because you’re a leader, doesn’t mean I need your sympathy.”

“What make you think you can talk to me like that?” He says gripping your arm tightly, “You said it yourself honey, I’m a leader, and what are you? Just a petty little janitor. So next time, think twice before trying to sass me.”

“Fuck you,” I mutter.

He clenches his jaw, his grip on your arm tightens, and he hisses, “What was that? You’ll have to speak up.”

You roll your eyes. Bad decision.

“Don’t ever roll your eyes at me Y/N!” Damn, he actually knows your name, “Why don’t we put your little cleaning skills to the test. Be at my place, tonight at 8, and if you don’t show up it might be the end of your life as a member of Dauntless.”

You nod quickly and he walks away. You knew Eric was an asshole, but you never thought he would threaten to make you factionless. You continue cleaning the training room thinking, ‘What have I got myself into?’

You get to Eric’s door five minutes before 8:00, and you slowly knock, he opens the door, staring down at you.

Eric stands shirtless, in loose lounge pants that hang low on his hips, he looks like a fucking God, and you have fight the urge to throw yourself at him, “You’re early.”

You shrug your shoulders, “Better than being late, right?”

He leads you in and your jaw drops at the mess in his apartment, you curse under your breath knowing that he made this place extra messy just for you. He gestures at you to get started and makes his way to his kitchen.

It takes you just over an hour to clean the entire living room and by the end of it, you are absolutely exhausted, you have never worked so fast in your life.

Eric finally walks out of the kitchen, and nods in approval, “Impressive.”

You smile back at him, and he asks, “You hungry?”

At that moment, you realize how hungry you actually are, so you nod at him, and he gestures at you to follow. You walk into his dining room with him and notice two plates of pasta salad sitting on the table.

Eric sits down in his chair and you stare at him, this has to be some kind of joke, why would a Dauntless leader make dinner for a girl like you?

He shoots you a questioning look, then demands, “Sit.”

You quickly sit in the chair across from him and start eating, “Wow, this is really good.”

Eric smirks, and you realized that you just boosted ego even more, “What did you expect?”

“I don’t know, like burnt food, maybe a kitchen on fire or something,” He rolls his eyes at your pathetic attempt at a joke.

“Alright well I should go,” You say putting your dishes in the sink and walking out of the dining room, towards the door.

“Okay, well I’ll see you around Y/N,” Eric smiles, like actually smiles, not the malicious smile he gets when he is torturing an initiate, but a legit, happy, smile.

Your Candor side suddenly shows through and you blurt, “You should smile more often, makes you look hotter.”

He chuckles, and your eyes widen when you realize what you just said, “I-I mean, I’m just gonna go now!”

You walk out the door, and Eric stands in the doorway, looking at you, you can’t help but stare down at his Greek God body.

“Like what you see,” He smirks, and you turn a bright shade of red. He suddenly squints at you, “You have a little something on your mouth.”

You touch the side of your lip trying to get it off, “Where?”

“Here, let me get it,” He leans forward and places his lips on yours, kissing you roughly, eventually he pulls back, leaving you out of breath, “God knows how long I’ve been waiting to do that.”

He walks into his apartment and shuts the door behind him. Leaving you in the middle of the hallway, stunned and in awe. You should sass Eric more often, if it leads to these kinds of punishments.    

A/N: Sorry if that’s not what you were hoping for, I didn’t really know what to write for the request, but I hope you liked it! xoxo

anonymous asked:

oh i'm really sorry for how that came off omg i was just wondering if there were any pros to speaking it as a jewish person from the US with no israeli relatives. i'm really disconnected from my faith so i'm sorry if my question sounded bad

okay well your question came off as “bad” because you suggested that speaking hebrew automatically makes you a zionist…which is just undeniably false. that being said i think learning ANY new language is a great skill to have and even if you don’t have any israeli relatives, learning hebrew can make understanding our holy books and our prayers way more meaningful

He’s wearing your favourite scarf today you notice, wrapped around his neck the warm fabric brushes against his flushed cheeks as he enters the shop. The weather had become considerably dull over the past few days, winter settling over the city in form of strong winds and icy roads.

I keep thinking about it because it’s definitely something I want to explore perhaps in Two and a Half Steps, but like… asexual James Vega is the type of asexual representation I would KILL to see.

He expresses how he doesn’t “fraternize” and despite his hookup with Ashley, which in a universe where Kaidan survives, doesn’t happen, James doesn’t canonically end up with anyone. And of course, people could read into the flirtiness as “well clearly he’s not asexual because he flirts a lot! so he’s interested in being with people!”

But you see… that’s why it would be so great. The closest ace representation (not even explicit really) out there is shit like Sherlock Holmes, or until he banged his girlfriend, Sheldon from the Big Bang Theory. Of course there are examples out there, but they’re very tiny. The ace community gets recluses and people who have very bad social skills. We’re lead to believe that we only exist if we live in our mom’s basement and aren’t really just asexual, just don’t know how to flirt or speak to people. We’re not asexual. We just can’t get laid.

So to think about a universe where James, a flirty, outgoing, multifaceted character who is so far from other implied asexuals in the media… it’s a really, really awesome. It’s the sort of thing I would kill to see. Someone who identifies as asexual, is comfortable in themselves and has good social skills, and can flirt and be outgoing. Asexual James Vega would just mean so much to me.

Eyyy, guess who finally pulled their life together for once? Since I’ve been in a good mood lately, I’ve been doodling frequently and happened to change my style. Drew grew out his hair, so now he decided to show his age lol. Just a few practice sketches of mine, hopefully I can incorporate my new style into asks!

feels great to be back! 

“Just Aspie Things #20” I can’t believe I’ve done this many. Often times the suggestion is “Just be youself.” With complete disregard for whether or not that will in fact work.

I grew up in a majority black Middle, and Highschool where I was pickled on and singled out for being different in more ways than one, but had I not adapted over time I would’ve continued being picked on, and I would’ve never come as far as I have.

Acting neurotypical should never be a permanent nesessity, but is a useful skill for when you need to achieve your goals, or get out of bad situations. Interviews, interactions with authority figures, and many other things can go a whole lot better with this skillset.

On a related note, learning to speak Mandarin doesn’t mean you are trying to be Chinese. It just means you are trying to be understood by a Chinese person. Much like learning to speak Neurotypical doesn’t mean you have to give up yourself. You are merely translating.

My new Korean roommate just stopped by while I was making Gimbap and was quite impressed. Under normal circumstances I would have immediately offered her something, but I got a reputation to lose - for making extremely good Gimbap - and for some reason the taste of the spinach is really prominent today - that happens if you buy stuff on sale -, which usually doesn’t happen…so I didn’t want to give her a bad first impression of my skills. However, now I’m feeling bad. TT__TT Sorry roommate-chan….next time.

team olitz all the way bichechasssss. I love fitzgerald grant and olivia pope so bad. I wish i had olivia’s skills/intelligence/determination aka i wish i have everything about her. also, include the hot boyfriend too.

kinslayer783  asked:

How did you guys feel when you lost to luka, surely some of your guys pride wouldn't allow this to happen and thought of something to get him back

“I cannot speak for the others, but when it comes to me, of course it felt bad - but it wasn’t a bad thing.

To think that you’re immortal or unbeatable is to grow far too cocky. I never claimed to be the best swordwoman around, nor I wish to do so now - I am proud of my skill, but being beaten just says that I have to keep training and it’s a good reminded that no matter what, there’s never a point when you can claim to have reached the top.

Luka was stronger than me. He beat me far and square and not accepting it would be just a fool’s decision. Instead of letting this loss anger me, I’ll use it as a reminder that I’ll have to keep training. One day I’ll be able to beat Luka, I just have to keep practicing.”

Rising Gemini

This is a difficult placement to always be certain about because every single rising gemini is different but after analyzing a bit ive come to find similar traits in them and the differences with the sun signs

Rising Gemini with Sun air sign: These people can talk to anyone i mean like anyone. They will go up to strangers they don’t care, they just have a way with people. They always have something to talk about. One thing i personally love about these people (although some don’t know how to shut up) they are always the best distractions if you have something bad on your mind a rising gemini will always be up for fun conversations.

Rising Gemini with Sun water sign: These people are a bit less talkative to new people, and may even come off a bit shy at times. Once you get to know them you might even be surprised at the way they speak. They may not go up to strangers, but they skill have people skills.

Rising Gemini with Sun fire sign: With these people it’s like a 50/50 chance they will be super outgoing or just dont give a fuck. These people are great at making friends, and just like most rising geminis they are great for fun and long conversations. they love friendly debates.

Rising Gemini with Sun earth sign: Just like water signs with this placement rising gemini with earth signs are a bit more shy, but once youre their friend they always have something to talk about it can get pretty passionate at times. they always want to be with friends or they feel uncomfortable.

Streets

Just for fun, let’s do one where we pretend that the Warehouse came back from the explosion and everybody lived happily ever after… this can probably go into my “they made Helena a Regent” bucket. For some vague sense of consistency. Anyway, if that had happened, some agent and some Regent might have gone on vacation together every now and then. But just because you’re living happily ever after in a general sense, that doesn’t mean your vacation will go as planned, right? This should be another one that’s reasonably short and, one hopes, a bit sweet: an interrupted vacation, an artifact, maybe a friendly wager. People talk to each other. Nothing of great import. (This is in fact for @blackfoxreddog​. Down payment of sorts on an IOU.)

Streets

It is not, Helena tries to admonish herself into believing, that she minds seeing Pete and Claudia. It is not that at all. It is not even that she minds eating lunch with Pete and Claudia, despite the abysmal table manners exhibited by both of them. It is simply that she and Myka have been alone for four days, and had anticipated being alone for four more. Yet here Pete and Claudia are.

She hears Myka tell them, “San Francisco is lovely. We’re enjoying it.”

“San Francisco is lovely,” Helena affirms. “We are enjoying it.”

They gaze across the table at Pete and Claudia, who both wince. Claudia says, “If you’re gonna be all weird and formal, you should’ve just told us to buzz off. We would’ve understood.”

“That would have been impolite,” Helena points out.

Pete snorts. “Like that ever stops you.”

Helena entertains the notion of proving his point by stabbing him with her butter knife, but Myka grabs her arm and says, “It’s just that, you know, we’d sort of gotten out of the whole Warehouse… thing.”

“It’s not like anybody planned that ping in Cupertino,” Claudia says. “And you should probably be happy that Artie didn’t make you two take care of it, seeing as how you were already left-coastally located.”

“We’re on vacation. We wouldn’t have taken care of it,” Myka tells Claudia. Helena is gratified by the speed with which that response came. She sets her butter knife down and takes Myka’s hand. She is gratified once again by the speed with which a smile engulfs Myka’s face.

Week #1: Edinburgh

After retreating to the other bus after Emma’s dressing down, Killian did return half an hour later with Belle in tow, and everything was strictly business after that. They spent most of their 7-hour ride discussing shooting schedules and supply needs. And while Granny and Killian agreed to a shared list of main and somewhat generic ingredients, they refused to let the other know what exactly they were going to cook in each show. This meant that both Emma and Tink had a secret list of items they needed to procure as well. Fun. In prior years when they were on Auntie Em’s home turf, Emma had to scrape to get everything. Zelena made a sport of withholding information on vendors and possible contacts, which was why Emma’s eyebrows shot up when Tink handed her a neatly compiled list with a smile.

“These are all the people you might have need to contact in Edinburgh - meat, fish, spices, pastry, charcuterie, etc. If there is something missing, please let me know and I’ll get you the contact details.”

“Just like that?” Her eyes scanned the list and wondering what the catch was.

Photographer Advise from a Cosplayer

Someone sent me this message last week and I thought it was a really good question and should be  shared.

“Hello how are you? I follow you’re blog and have recently decided to branch into cosplay photography. With such a competitive market I was wondering if you Could help me with a few tips or resources that could help me get cosplay clients. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you. And keep up the good work.”

 I’m not a professional photographer myself, I do shoot on occasion for fun, so I will not be able to answer any technical or business questions thoroughly. However, I would be more than happy to answer  this question from a consumers view.

I’ve worked with quite a few photographers over the years both professionals and armatures. Here are things I like to see :

1)    Make Sure You Have an Online Portfolio

I want to see your past work. I want to know what you’re capable of. Make sure it’s your best stuff too, no crappy hall shot. Albums on a FB page or a link to a file hosting website are fine but make sure it’s easy to find and updated frequently.

2)    Make sure your rates are reasonable.

Find out what the other photographer in your area charge and price accordingly.  Where I live I generally pay $30-50 for a shoot. I know that in other areas $100+ isn’t unreasonable for a pro to charge. It all depends on location, saturation of the market and how much post editing the photographer is willing to put into it. I’m not really big on supper photo shopped pictures.  I don’t require a ton of post editing work from my photographer. However, some photographers have been super nice and gone up and beyond to create a fantastic picture for me with extensive photo shop work. I also know that some photographers will charge more at certain conventions. If I’m going to a small 500-2000 attendee convention I’ll probably spend less than if I went to a 20,000 attendee convention and bought a shoot.

3)    Make Sure You Have an Appropriate Watermark

This is one of my biggest pet peeves with working with photographs. There are some photographers I just will not work with because I hate how they chose to watermark their photos. Let me expound on this a bit but I first want to say that I think all photographers should watermark their photos. Just as a painter signs his/her painting and a sculptor imprints  his/her mark on his/her creation you too are an artist an should take credit for your work. However, your mark should not be a distraction from your subject matter.

If I glance at one of your photos and the first thing I notice is your watermark and not the photo itself then you’ve already lost me as a customer.  What that says to me is:

  •   You more concerned with promoting yourself then you are about giving me a good picture.
  • You are more concerned with promoting yourself then creating good art.
  • You do not have a basic understanding of composition and subject matter.
  • This is a rooky mistake and if you’ve been doing the same thing for years it shows me that you aren’t open to growth.

Don’t know what an appropriate watermark should look like? It should be small, it should be unobtrusive, and it should be an appropriate color in contrast to the rest of the photo. I know several photographers who have their watermark in 2-3 different colors or shades so they can customize it depending on the final colors of the picture.

Helpful tip: pick your top 5 favorite professional photographer and pay attention to how they place their watermark. You want to be as professional as possible, right? Then study others and learn from them. If you are still unsure there is a quick test you can do. Look at your photo, turn away from it and count to 10, quickly glance back out the photo. Without hesitating what is the first thing you notice in the photo? Whatever it is should be the focal point of your picture. If it is your watermark then think about how you can adjust it so it blends in more.

4)    Advertising

Whenever I’m looking to work with a new photographer at a convention I always check the FB pages of that convention and see who is advertising. Most have a nice photo with a sample of their work and a list of their rates. Some a have links to their portfolios.  Either one works for me. I just like being able to find you easily. Some of the photographers I like working with make sure they post a list on their websites or FB page with a list of the conventions they plan to attend.

If you need a good jumping in point host a photo shoot at a convention and be the official photographer for it. This will not get you paid shoots right away but it will introduce you to people and help you make connections. If people like working with you they may approach you about paid shoots later. Or you in turn may find someone you like working with and offer to do a one-on-one shoot later. Popular ideas for shoots are: Disney, Disney and Dreamworks, League of Legends, Gravity Falls, DBZ, Steven Universe, Undertale etc.

Be sure to have business cards. Anytime you shoot someone, especially quick hall shots, give them your card! It will be easy for them to find you later and then they can start tagging and sharing your photos. Now you’ve got your name circulating around.

Reach out to cosplayers you know or would like to get to know and offer to shoot with them. They will be sharing your finished work with their  fans and possible approach you in the future about paid shoots.

I’ve seen some photographers host contests where the prize was a free shoot with them. I like this idea because it’s better the just going around giving out a bunch of free shoots for a while to drum up business. You are giving away one shoot but your attaching worth to it. You’re saying that your time and skills are valuable and you’re allowing someone to have it but they have had to work for it in some way.

Possible approach a small convention and speak to their cosplay contest director. I know that small cons, especially ones starting out, are always looking for prizes for their contests. Offer a photo shoot (s) to the winner (s) of the cosplay contest. One contest I entered had a photographer who sponsored the contest and bought a super nice trophy that had his and the conventions logo on it.

5)    Don’t Get a Bad Rep

Don’t just be willing to shoot certain body types. I’m 30, I’m a size 14 and I am by no means the most beautiful Belle at the ball.  Basically, I’m not a photographer’s first pick of most characters. I’m not saying this to put myself down but this is something I realistically have to be aware of. Some photographer will not want to work with me because of how I look. Please don’t be someone like that. Be willing to work with all types of people.

Cosplayers talk among ourselves and if a photographer isn’t behaving professionally we like to get the word out. Be mindful of how you conduct yourself. Keep shoots to open and public areas. If you are going somewhere private extend an invitation to the cosplayer to invite a friend if they want.

I know some photographer don’t want other people around while they are shooting but I find they can be very helpful: carry gear, watch for wigs slipping and costume pieces out of place, hold lighting etc. Be open to having other people around. If a photographer says I can’t have at least 1 other person around during the shoot it sends up red flags about what their intentions are.

6)    What I Want and What You Want Can be Drastically Different.

What I’m expecting from a photo shoot can be way different they what you expect. This is ok, nobody is in the wrong. It’s just something you need to be aware of. Be sure to talk to the cosplayer at the beginning of the shoot and discussed what poses and types of shots they are wanting to do.

There have been times when I’ve shown up for a shoot and I’ve already scoped out what backgrounds I want to shoot against, have a list of poses and know which full body and which close up shots I want. Wham, bam and we are done in 15 minutes. Then there are times I’ve shown up and have a vague idea of what I want but I’m going to leave it you the photographer to do most of the directing. And then there are those rare times I show up, look the photographer in the eye, and go “Do you want to do something crazy? Let’s do something crazy!”  And then I ran through a creek in high heal, fell down a muddy embankment and climbed on a tank in a ball dress. And I’ve got pics to prove it thanks to my photographer who just kept shooting no matter what I did next.

Be ready to roll with it. Your model may be shy and this is their first time and you’ve got to coach them on poses and facial expressions. Be gentle and patient. Study their character and be ready to offer suggestions for poses.

I however have been doing this for years and I don’t want gentle- I want the hard truth. I had this bad habit of trying to look serious and instead looking constipated. I have tons of early pictures of my stupid constipation face! Why didn’t any of you photographers tell me! Uggg!!! But I now know what to do to hide it and my favorite photographers knows to remind me to raise my chin and not look like I need to take some laxatives.

Let your model look at the pictures periodically as you take them. You have a lot to focus on: background, lighting, making sure people aren’t walking in the back of the picture etc.  If you show them snap shots they can pick out detail on their costumes that may need adjusting. Most of us don’t bring mirrors to shoots, we need to check the photos to make sure our wigs aren’t slipping or our petticoats aren’t showing.

Also, give them a quick overview of the photos you’ve taken. I know you want to edit them before showing them to the world but it’s important to make sure the cosplayer got what they wanted out of the shoot. Pay attention to the ones they mention they like and include them with the finished photos.

               Other useful tips

  •   The photo you thought was the best of the shoot isn’t necessarily the one they will think is the best one. That’s ok, everyone has different taste.
  • Make sure you get photos that will be usable for FB profile and banner pictures. Landscape photos with negative space to the left are particularly necessary for the banner photos.
  •   Cosplayer like up close shots of the details on their costumes. This may sound silly but we often make tutorials and having those types of photos are a necessity. Otherwise we may need to crop a photo and we don’t want to offend you or get in trouble by cutting out your watermark. If we ask you to crop it or for permission to crop it ourselves please be willing to accommodate us. I promise we aren’t trying to cramp your style or dictate your art we just need something to fit in certain parameters for a tutorial or FB layout.
  •   Having the model sign a waiver is ok. This lets us know what we can and can’t do with the photos as well as know you aren’t going to exploit us in any way. This helps protect everyone involved.
  •    If you are going to start shooting Deviant or risqué shoots be careful how you approach people about shooting these types of thing. It’s generally wise to let the models come to you rather then approach them about the shoot. You can mention that you do those types of shoots but make sure you aren’t making someone feel uncomfortable or hounding them to do something like that. That’s a fast way to get labeled a creeper in the community

I’m sure I’m forgetting some things. If anyone else who wants to add to this feel free.

violentweakling  asked:

I have tried to write this message a bunch of times and keep failing, but I'm trying again! Could you talk a little bit about your Charles Xavier post? I don't experience autism, (although I am disabled) and I was just curious about yr perspective because I don't know much about autism and also really love X-Men? You're in no way obligated to explain your disability to me at all, though. I hope you have a good night!

Hey there!!

First of all, let it be known that I don’t know X-Men all that well, like I haven’t seen every film and I’m definitely not involved in the comics at all, and I don’t wanna come across as an expert on the series because I’m not at all haha. But luckily autism is something that, since everyone experiences it differently and every autistic person is different, you don’t need lots of knowledge to “back up” an autistic headcanon.

As for why I see James McAvoy’s Charles Xavier as autistic, the first thing that comes to mind is his… obsession with mutations. This is seen especially early on in the beginning of First Class, y’know how his “flirting” with women is basically just rambling on about mutation? To the point that it comes across as really ridiculous sounding? That’s really relatable as an autistic person, we tend to obsess over stuff and then constantly bring it up and ramble about it, including at bad/awkward times haha

And speaking of awkward, in general I think Charles is presented as having bad social skills and trouble with communication and such… He didn’t have any friends other than Raven, and while that could also be accounted for the fact that he’s a mutant, it’s still worth mentioning, since it’s perfectly possible and likely for autism to effect that too (and many autistic people don’t have many friends, partly because they prefer only close friendships and partly because making friends can be so difficult). And despite her being his friend said communication struggles can be seen while communicating with Raven too, even, if you watch for it. Like his awkwardness when she asks if he’d ever date her.

Also, He can struggle with poor timing and lack of awareness for his surroundings such as when he thoughtlessly “outs” Hank/Beast as a mutant in front of tons of people.

Then outside of like canon stuff (there’s a few more things but I’m tired and have a migraine so hopefully that was enough for now haha), there’s also the fact that being autistic would make his mutation actually help him so much in day-to-day life, which makes it a really interesting headcanon. See, autistic people tend to have a lot of trouble with confrontation and face-to-face conversations, from everything to struggling with facial expressions and reading other people’s facial expressions, being unable to make eye contact, having trouble with understanding tone, being incapable of forming words under pressure, etc. Not to mention lots of us go nonverbal sometimes so we can’t talk at all.

So having the ability to communicate with people telepathically would be so useful for an autistic person!! He could handle confrontations so much easier and he could still communicate with people while nonverbal. For example, during sensory overload if he were locked in a room with the door shut and the lights off and needed alone time (and was probably nonverbal or at least struggling with words), if he heard someone coming he could tell them not to enter because he needed space telepathically without having to say anything out loud or even be disturbed by their intruding!

I hope this all makes sense! I’m so tired haha I have the worst headache but I really love explaining this sort of stuff so I hope I’m at least coherent! Thank you for asking!!

collection of fake anime caps I did yesterday/this morning ?? all together lol christ. Apparently doing darker ones = easier than bright ones cause my poor 2px lining skills become evident in THE LIGHT. Never again. It’s high speaking in all of them for some reason oops

In all honesty though, Stephanie Meyer’s new book makes me angry. The fact that she can just rewrite her own book with gender-swapped characters and get it published (and probably make a shit ton of money off it) shows how fucked up the publication industry is. It’s exactly that, it’s an industry. Publishers clearly don’t give a fuck about writing quality and only care about publishing what will sell. And I’ve always recognized that this was the case, but this Twilight book takes it to a whole different level. Don’t these publishers have some idea of standards? What is the point of this book? It’s just lazy ass writing. And it’s so aggravating to think of all the talented writers who aren’t getting published because hacks like Stephanie Meyer can publish anything that has their name on it (yes, writing is subjective, but writing is a skill and speaking purely in terms of skill set, Meyer is objectively a bad writer).

As an unpublished writer and just as someone who values good writing, I can’t express how much Meyer’s book infuriates me. Yes, it’s funny, but also it’s absolutely disgusting that this is the type of drivel that editors deem worthy of publication.

BOBBY - COME HERE RAP CUT 

Lyrics: 

I’m talking about a newborn puppy’s drooling
Proud to be the young blood
* I’m standing at the center of the proverb saying “He that will steal a pin will steal an ox”
** I’m at the top, so everyone wants to pull me down, bursting out.
*** If you thought me as water, be careful like when you have some Tabasco
**** I’m dissipated, throwing away the pretty boys
I didn’t ask for it but people call me a monster
***** You just love standing before show windows, much more than basement dungeons
****** If my skill shows as my appearance, I’ll be Won Bin standing before the bullet-proof glass
******* I get all the work, including the work which bad-singer-rappers used to do #
You don’t have a thing to do, so you speak ill of me ##
Don’t accept me as your junior, I mind you pretending to be my close friend ###
If you don’t like me then take me and my bad manners down with your skill ####

Note:
* Korean proverb “He that will steal a pin will steal an ox” means a man who stole a small thing like pin would steal bigger things like an ox later on. It means one would go for the bigger goal, one would achieve the bigger goal.
** wordplay: ‘top’ in Korean 정상 also means 'president’ / 'pull me down’ in Korean 부시다 and 부시 sounds like 'Bush’ / 'burst out’ in Korean 버럭하다 and 버럭 sounds like 'Barack’. That’s why in the MV, the girls wearing masks of Bush and Barack
*** Korean phrase “thought someone as water” means the person is easily ignored, looked down on.
**** In the MV, Bobby throws away boy Barbie dolls. Other rappers used to make fun of his name Bobby. Also “pretty boy” is a word usually used to make fun of pretty idols.
***** Bobby is a trainee of YG Entertainment, and the practice room is in the basement; YG trainees call the room “dungeons.”
****** “Won Bin” is a famous Korean actor. He is very handsome, literally everyone praises him for his good-looking appearance.
******* “bad-singer-rappers” Most of the rappers of Korean idol group are the ones who can’t sing. They’re rappers not because they’re good at rapping, but they can’t sing so they’re reluctant to rap to become a celebrity.

# 'work’ in Korean 일 also means '1’, ## 'speak ill of’ in Korean 이 까다 and 이 also means '2’, ### 'mind’ in Korean 삼가다 and 삼 also means '3’, #### 'bad manners’ in Korean 싸가지 and 싸(사) also means '4’. So that makes 1 2 3 4 numbers in his last 4 sentences.

Dear some BTS fans

I get why you would be pissed, I really do but I wish you would take the time to read the real translation of Bobby’s rap. It’s not because he’s in YG that people are defending him coz I’ve seen non fans even defend because it literally makes no sense that it’d be a diss track. This isn’t even an issue in Korea like Akp made it seem

Here are the real trans

P.S Bobby referred to himself as a monster because thats what articles call him, monster trainee or monster rapper (because of how he dominates the stage).

Bobby’s version of 'idol rappers’ are those that are cute but can’t sing, and are told to become rappers so that they can join the band, he explained this in SMTM…and we all fucking know that rapmon and BTS know their shit. I am pretty shocked that fans would even think it’s a diss at them, like NO FUCKING WAY!

Also, instiz released an article after that of the real trans and the speculation was shut down before MAMA even ended, it just sucks that NB, AKP, & Koreaboo are just posting it now (why would you even believe them tho, they love drama so much).

So yeah, I get why you’d be pissed but you legit have no reason to be.
