if you are thinking of putting ॐ (aum or om) somewhere on your body as a tattoo, please only do it if it has a significant meaning to you. it is very sacred and important to my religion (buddhism) and many others. i would really appreciate it if you would take that into consideration before just putting it on your body because it looks Aesthetic™. if you do find peace with it and its meaning then by all means have it as a permanent reminder on your skin. but please don’t ink it to your body or wear jewellery with the symbol just because you think it looks nice and think that it is fashionable.
If you like it, even if you don’t know what fandom it’s from or whatever, please reblog. it can make an artists day to see that someone cared enough to share their art with the world. That exposure can lead to the artist getting more followers and people willing to pay for their art. Reblogging art can actually help artists get to the point where they can make a living off of what they love doing!
Sorry for not writing anything about this, but I wanted to wait a little bit more until more information was released to the public.
Yesterday at 23:49 Mexico was stroke by an 8.2 (Richter scale) magnitude earthquake. Said earthquake could be felt at least by half the country (center and south mainly). The states with more damages registered until today at 10:00 are Oaxaca, Chiapas and Veracruz. Until today at 10:50 at least 266 replicas were registered with a magnitude up to 5.0 (Richter scale). CONAPRED (an organisation for the prevention of disasters) said it could be expected a replica with 7.0 magnitude in Richter scale.
Now, one of the most important things is that, Juchitán, located in Oaxaca, was one of the towns worst affected by the earthquake, with at least 36 people deceased and many more injured. If you want to help this is what you can do:
The government opened two accounts were you can donate money to help the victims in Oaxaca and Chiapas:
Note: Please verify the numbers or ask someone if the accounts are right since I got them from trusty (yet, i don’t trust) news pages on the web.

Now, there is a possibility of some replicas in the next hours, days or weeks, however, please, please, please, don’t spread panic among everyone, it is not safe for anyone and it would make difficult the efforts to keep people safe. If there is another earthquake here’s what you can do instead:
If you’re indoors,
stand against an interior wall. Stay clear of exterior walls, glass, heavy furniture, fireplaces and appliances.
If you’re outside, get into the open. Stay clear of buildings, power lines or anything else that could fall on you.
If you’re driving, move the car out of traffic and stop. Avoid parking under or on bridges or overpasses.
If you’re in a crowded public place, avoid panicking and do not rush for the exit.
hey y’all, it’s been a few years since we’ve had a Secret Santa for Zombies Run, and I was wondering if there was any interest in doing one again this year? it doesn’t have to be a big deal or anything, it can just be a fun swap of fic/art/edits/etc. to get in the spirit of things and share content with other fans.
this isn’t necessarily a guarantee that it’s going to happen, but I wanted to gauge interest and see if it’s something people might be into, so let me know!
ok but give me a thread where muse a and muse b grew up together. like they were little kids ( i’m talking seven or eight years old ), muse b moved into the house next to muse a and they became best friends almost immediately. and they were super duper close, even going as far as going to prom together because they were both single at the time. they were the ones that everyone wanted to be together, or actually thought already were. and after graduation, they went off to seperate colleges. muse a ended up returning home after college, while muse b went off to the big city to achieve their dreams or whatever BUT now muse b has moved back to town and is reuniting with muse a and they’re both realizing their feelings for each other???? *infomercial voice* BUT WAIT THERE’S MORE!! optional: muse a already has a boyfriend/girlfriend/husband/wife/fiance/e and their relationship with muse b is putting tension on that relationship so they’re pretty much left with the choice between them or muse b
