So you don't mind people who like Snape?

no????? ofc i don’t and i shouldn’t even have to answer this tbh, when i said every character and ship, i actually meant it cause other people’s opinions do not affect me in the slightest and they’re never going to so i don’t see the problem???? also he’s not the only problematic character in the book, like we had an actual devil reincarnate in the form of voldemort and yet people seem to love him, ship him with every character in the entire series (including harry himself), glorify his violence/abuse/treatment of other characters and yet they still can’t understand or tolerate people who like snape??????

What do you think would be the Avatar element lineup for the team?

This is a very interesting question… mmmmm, (also a million apologies for how ridicolously late I’m replying this).

Water:

- Jack, (despite all the hockeyZuko jokes) would totally be water so that he can have ice powers.

- Ransom, entirely because I think he would really enjoy being a healer.

Fire:

- Bitty, he uses his impressive control for pie baking almost exclusively.

- Holster, he’s a hot head, need I say more?

- Dex, kind of a combination of the two above…

Earth:

- Shitty, he has the stubborn and won’t be moved attitude.

- Chowder, same reasoning but more based on the mental space he gets into when he’s on goalie mode.

Air:

- Lardo, she has that inner peace thing figured out and also her air control would be amazing.

- Nursey, the least chill air bender to have ever existed. I’m not gonna lie he is here purely for the amusement factor.

Im with you, while the gay part of me appreciates some aspects of the skin, it leaves an awul taste in my mouth that Widow gets like, no autonomy on different layers. On one layer she already doesn't have autonomy as she's given a sexualized design by the writers. "BUT SHE CHOSE THAT OUTFIT", uhm, she's a character, written and designed by males. She doesn't have autonomy. And on ANOTHER level, her autonomy as a character was taken by talon? So like... she really has NONE at all, on any level.

^^^^^^^^^

Personal headcanon; Gabe was a great tactician but didn’t want to hear other people’s opinions. He wanted his orders to be followed by the people he was giving them to, and leave it at that. Jack was more of the opinion that the military way they’d been doing things wasn’t working and they’d be better off round tabling it to get the unique perspectives of all the international superhero oddballs they’d assembled to fight the Omnics.

No one wanted to challenge Gabe because he was intimidating and better-at-everything-than-everyone, so Jack would go out of his way to listen to everyone’s opinions and throw himself on the sword to personally challenge Gabe with their suggestions because it didn’t put him on the defensive to justify his strategy to Jack the same way it would if he felt like the team was ganging up on him (and even if it did, Jack was his best bud and they’d get over it eventually). Gabe thought of himself as a Commander and didn’t have any hangups about commanding, but Jack always thought of himself as a soldier no matter how many promotions he got and as such addressed people at lower ranks like equals. He made himself approachable enough that everyone under his command felt comfortable challenging his orders to his face, which is an emotionally taxing way to try to run a military strike force for 20 years.

Gabe was too hard and wanted things done exactly how he wanted, Jack was too soft and wanted to hear the team’s opinions on everything. Together they filled in each other’s missing pieces and saved the world, separate the whole house of cards fell apart.

since our fandom is relatively small and we all follow each other i was wondering if i should make a discord server for us? would anyone want to join if i did? i mean we’re all in gafou/stanfou hell anyway and most of us are good friends/mutuals, it might be fun. i’ll tag a bunch of people who i think might be interested, let me know what you think and if enough people want it i’ll make one

Designing Complex Spells

It’s been a while since I’ve made a witchy post. This past full moon, I spent a good deal of time designing a complex spell. You can see the pages I brainstormed for a complex spell above.

For the sake of this post, a complex spell:

  • is sometimes cast to achieve long-term results, without having to consistently recast the spell
  • requires a lot of magical energy
  • requires planning
  • consists of multiple steps, or possibly multiple spells cast in succession

I highly recommend that experienced witches cast these types of spells, mainly because they have the ability to completely drain you. And I don’t want any of you harming your lovely selves!

This post is a guide or, at the very least, food for thought on how to design complex spells. As an example I will use the most recent spell I designed, a spell to worry less about what others think of me.

Step 1: Determine exactly what kind of spell(s) you wish to cast, and in what order.

For example, I created a spell to worry less about what others think of me. But in witchcraft terms, what exactly am I doing? Is it banishment, where I force others to turn their opinions away from me? Is it protecting myself from others’ opinions? Is it cleansing myself from the effect that others have on me? Is it an anti-anxiety spell, or a confidence spell? There’s a lot to consider here that can’t be covered in a single step. Think hard about exactly what you want to achieve. This is a very critical step, so do some brainstorming or sit on it if you must.

Eventually I decided to imitate the weight of others’ opinions on me, cleanse myself of their affect, protect myself from their affect, and then banish others’ affect on me. ( I figured that other peoples’ opinions will be there whether I banish them or not, so I might as well protect myself from them before banishing them from my mind, in a sense.) There are many other ways I could’ve done this spell that would’ve changed the overall intent. But notice how I’m including four spells into one ritual: simulating peoples’ attention on me, cleansing myself, protecting myself, and a banishing at the end.

Step 2: Decide which actions to perform.

In my opinion, action is just as important (if not more) than ingredients in spell work. The action determines what you do with the ingredients you decide on doing. For each spell/step, brainstorm a couple options you could potentially do for that step. Here’s my example:

Ridding Scrutiny: burning, crushing, ripping, trapping in a jar, burying, locking away, cutting, throwing into the wind or into a body of water, snuffing out a candle.

Once you’ve got some potential actions written down, you can decide on which one works best for your particular spell.

Step 3: Decide on materials for each step.

For this step, I advise that you coincide the magical properties of the materials to the purpose of the spell. For example, I had originally thought of ripping up rose petals for the banishing spell, but later decided that that wouldn’t work. Roses symbolize love and peace, and it makes no sense to banish that from my life, when I really want to banish the weight of other peoples’ expectations set on me.

Now that you know exactly what your intentions are, and what actions you’ll be doing with the materials, it’ll be easier to decide on which ingredients to use when. These ingredients don’t only include herbs or crystals–I included mirrors, sticky notes, cleaning wipes, washcloth, and anything else I needed.

I know these are listed as only three basic steps, but hopefully it helps you form an idea on how to design complex spells. If you have any extra ideas or questions, add on to this post, or message me anytime. ☆=(ゝω・)/

That’s all from me for now! Blessed be!! ( ´ ∀`) /.☆.。.:*・°

one of my favourite bits from the whole darkiplier route is the part where it looks like mark is fighting back

Originally posted by markfangirl

but! here’s a question! do you think that mark and dark are two separate entities altogether? if so, were they always separate? 

OR is it possible that dark took over mark’s body, but somehow they became separate? because remember, dark said that mark promised to “let him in again”, as if they inhabited the same body. BUT later on it shows them as two separate people, suggesting they split at some point. and if there’s any moment that shows the two splitting apart, it’s this one.  

idk, maybe I’m thinking about this too much haha. what do you guys think?

An episode where Pearl meets someone who acts like her could be interesting. Like they use their frail appearance and sad back story to get what they want from people or to stop people from critisizing them. Someone who won’t get over that one crush who moved on.

And at the end Pearl is getting sick of listening to them and either Steven or Amethyst goes ‘But pearl, don’t you do the same thing?’

And Pearl just has a big moment of self realization of what’s she’s done over the years. Her obsession with Rose and behavior against Greg.

It could end with the gems chasing the person away because now everyone’s just annoyed at them, and Pearl just kinda… thinks in the house and doesn’t do anything for a few days/episode because she’s still thinking.

And she starts being more observant when she starts doing her pity stuff and feels angry over Rose, she becomes more hesitant and really starts to think things over.

You know, character stuff that takes a long time to do.

I don’t think anyone chooses to have their personal life on display for the world to see and judge, but at the same time, I won’t stop living my life and going with my heart. Everyone deals with judgment and other people voicing their opinions without ever knowing the full and true story. People won’t stop spreading things they’ve heard through the grapevine, or creating stories based on a random picture. It doesn’t matter what industry you’re in. There will always be people who react even when they don’t know what’s going on.

anonymous asked:

what do you think of a lot of the su criticism going around? i'm kinda tired of it myself, and while some had good points, i think the majority are overblown, and i wanna hear from someone else who actually likes su

hhh i’ve tried to hold my pettiness about this trend…. but i’ll do one post, because i’m the worst and can’t contain myself.

Don’t let yourself be brainwashed

take a step back. look at your beliefs, are they really your beliefs? or are they the beliefs others have led you to think are right?

the tumblr community is notorious for this! if you don’t fit the perfect mold of social justice, you like the wrong artists or tv shows, or you have beliefs that may be “problematic,” it won’t take long for tumblr to train you to think that your own beliefs are wrong.

don’t get me wrong, a lot of things i have learned on this website, particularly about social justice, have made a huge and great impact on my life. however, this summer i took a step back and realized that there are things that i “believed” that i didn’t actually think were right. there were people who i disliked only because they weren’t quite on the “approved list of non-problematic people” who were perfectly good human beings!

think long and hard about your own beliefs. use information to educate yourself, but do not let it take over your own beliefs “just because.”

tl;dr 

think for yourself and don’t let tumblr destroy your self-identity 

just to clear the air im specifically sad at my horse prince and licking game cartridges not the entirety of dan and phils content jeez

“Have fun, be silly, be carefree, only listen to whatever you want to do and don’t listen to other people because it doesn’t matter. It’s what matters to you and what you believe in and what makes you happy and what makes you smile that will get you through the day. So don’t be affected by other people’s opinions because everyone will have an opinion and you can never appease everyone—I have to remind myself of that daily.”

Do we know how the ancient Celts felt about mental illnesses? I'm mentally ill, but I recently read something that made me feel very unwanted in the Pagan Path I follow.... I may or may not have cried a little bit....

Hi there, sweet soul. I haven’t been able to find any records regarding Celts and their view on illness - perhaps other followers can chime in with more info?

On the other hand, it really doesn’t matter what other people (regardless of their beliefs) think or what the ancient Celts might’ve thought. You’re alive here and now, and if you feel happy following a particular path, then nothing else matters. Adversity you will find everywhere, so don’t let other people’s opinions/beliefs make you feel unwanted or inferior, for any reason.

Mental illness is a very delicate subject and takes a lot of courage to handle, so I wish you a lot of strength and all the best, anon.
