i know i literally just made a post talking about welcome to night vale but i think i just realised something

you know how cecil reports really obvious stuff sometimes?? like, things that should be common knowledge for night vale citizens? well, what if he’s reporting in such an obvious manner to teach carlos about night vale in a subtle way?? like, imagine a lil carlos, new to night vale, who has no idea of what’s going on half the time. and the only way he’s able to start making heads or tails about anything in that town is bc he stars listening to some weird community radio broadcast that oddly explains everything about it. what if carlos learned about night vale just like the wtnv podcast audience did??? it’s so late but that is such a cute and adorable thing for cecil to do like hold me

anonymous asked:

what are your thoughts on the idea that gon is very toxic to killua and doesn't deserve him (especially after everything thats happened in the chimera ant arc) etc etc ???

Hellooo, anon! Okay, this might be a litttllee long buut. (also i’m really bad at explaining things, trying to describe what’s in my head can sometimes be hard)

First off, this kind of mind-set seriously boggles me. That either of these kids could be toxic to one another and I’ll tell you why.

They’re children. 

You can not hold 12 year-old kids to adult standards. But everyone seems to do so, automatically. 

Second of all, at which point didn’t Gon deserve Killua? Because, in practically every episode, you have Gon thanking Killua for being there, telling him how much he means. Like why?? Would you tell this child??? He doesn’t??? Deserve his best goddamn friend????? WHYYYYY!!!!!

The point I really want to make and drive home about these two characters is they are children. Sure, they might be 14/15 by the end of the arc but what EXACTLY does that mean? Beyond the physical and physiological changes.. You throw two little boys into a fucking war. They understand what death is but they want everyone, EVERYONE to live-despite themselves. You murder someone they care about, someone they greatly valued.

Here’s the thing about Gon, it’s incredibly clear he does not value himself. It’s entirely clear he doesn’t think he is deserving or worth anything or anyone’s time. Kill him, he’s okay with that, he’ll fight until it’s over. 

Kill someone he loves? Someone that got involved with a fight because of him? Just because they were near him? 

How do you tell a child that already hates himself that it wasn’t his fault? That it’s not his fight? That it’s okay to break down and feel his pain? 

Who the fuck even asked him? No one. 

Instead, every single adult on hxh literally took advantage of this child’s grief, loss, confusion and anger, of his misanthropy because they knew they could use it. [i.e. when Morel wanted to “test” Gon] Every adult in these two boys’ life, FAILED them. They’re strong, but so what? They’re not soldiers!

So, imagine being 14. You hate yourself and you are willing to literally throw yourself in front of ANYONE to take a bullet because you don’t matter, because everyone is more important than you’ll ever be, because everyone is amazing (including your best friend, who you think you don’t deserve anyway). Imagine looking up to someone who you not only have a past with (and has saved your life, twice already) but who has a link to your future. Who shows you kindness and compassion. And then imagine on a cold night, that person is taken away from you completely. Imagine wanting that person back so bad, holding that belief that you’ll get them back, you have to!! Because.. Because.. If you don’t. It’s your fault. It’s all your fucking fault and you’re worthless and they’re dead even though YOU should be and fuck it who fucking caress, if they’re dead, you wanna be dead anyway!

These kids are filled with grief. They don’t truly understand and no one gives a shit if they do, anyway. 

Which part of this makes them undeserving of one another? 

One who is so lost to his own darkness and his best friend who is just struggling to keep hold of him because he cares about him so much and never wants to see him break or struggle. 

The only person Gon Freecss is toxic to–is himself.

 Even if you want to get into the “Since it means nothing to you” comment, you still have a kid whose hell bent on revenge and heartbroken, filled to the brim and overflowing with his emotion simply taking his anger out on someone who asked him to stop. But who else asked before that? I’m pretty sure we covered it and it was no one. Gon went into that fight, alone. Gon wanted to murder Neferpitou or die trying, alone.

You didn’t allow these kids to feel a fucking thing. You took advantage of their pain for your war. Anything to get the job done, right? ‘Cause that’s what hunters do, right? 

Anyway, I’m likely rambling now but my point is.

Gon and Killua are kids who were tasked with something everyone should have objected to. They weren’t allowed to deal or sort their feelings, only to bury them until it was the “right” time to unleash them. 

How can someone, based off that, unanimously decide that one child is toxic to the other and doesn’t deserve them? Idk man, that’s some shit. 

So, no, I don’t think Gon is toxic to Killua and I don’t think he doesn’t deserve him. If anything, I think these kids need to fucking hug each other, flip off Ging and ride off into the goddamn sunset with Alluka/Nanika in tow to live Happily Ever After. 

anonymous asked:

Hello! What would you say is the best way to distinguish between an sp/sx and sx/sp stacking? Ruling out the others was easy enough, but these two seem so alike?!...

Let´s look at some concrete situations.


Sp/Sx versus Sx/Sp

When asked about their hobbies:

  • sp/sx will tell you about all sorts of cool solitary activites (if they actually open up to you, that is. these people fiercely protect their privacy)
  • sx/sp, in 9 times out of 10, will tell you about how they stalk their fav online. Or activities that make them look good.

At a party:

  • sp/sx sits in a dark corner and wants to get away as soon as possible. Even that is a very, very rare sight, they tend to avoid parties in the first place. They´d rather work on their current project. They need plenty of alcohol to get into the mood, or some so/sx friend who is very persuasive.
  • sx/sp sits in a dark corner with an acquaintance and wants to get away as soon as possible. An sx/sp ALWAYS attends a party as part of a duo or trio. The more extraverted ones may dance - daringly. An intoxicated sx/sp… shouldn´t be intoxicated.

When asked about their crush (if they have one):

  • sp/sx gets kinda shy and smiley. Plenty of sp/sx people like to hide their crush so they will attempt to control their feelings. Some fail miserably, some remain pokerfaced and in complete denial.
  • sx/sp gets all worked up like shit…. what´s going on with them… You can see that it tears them apart when they are not together with their crush.

When asked about their partner (if they have one):

  • sp/sx talks about their personal benefits since they entered this union. Material gains, experiences, that kind of stuff. Again, they will hesitate a lot to actually talk about it. It´ll be evident how much they treasure their significant other even if they don´t mention them directly.
  • sx/sp will lighten up and will tell you how much their life has changed. You can tell that they want to praise their partner so bad yet are too possessive to put all the information out there. 

When interacting with their partner (who plans to go out):

  • sp/sx is like “I´ll stay at home today, I got stuff to do. Go out if you want to, but I´m busy here.” It would take a bulldozer to get them out of the house if they don´t want to. They will always remain independent but can secretly curse their partner for not being with them. 
  • sx/sp is like “Can we stay at home together? We can watch [insert couple´s favourite series]. No? Ok…I´ll get my shades. Oh, your friends are coming with us? Forget it.” *disappears into the darkness of the basement* “Payback” awaits said partner once they come home again.

When doing group work:

  • sp/sx usually stays silent and contributes via… nonverbal cues. They will work behind the scenes but remain contained during interaction.
  • sx/sp does speak up but they have to be familiar with the members. The elephant in the room: sx/sp´s personality is seen as slightly problematic because they don´t cooperate easily, think Wolverine. 

When giving a larger public speech they prepared:

  • sp/sx is on some sedatives, and they hate everything. If there´s a subtype that is least suited for speeches, it´s this one. When their sx and so instincts are not developed, they will mentally walk through hell on that podium. As with parties, they have probably avoided it in the first place. If they are forced to speak, they need a VERY good reason (and a good usage of their extraverted functions!) that motivates them to perform well. 
  • sx/sp is also nervous but they try hard to seem confident. They distract from their nervousness with a special outfit, their voice, and their overall intensity. They can blow people away if their speech is structured well and they have practised a lot. They struggle a lot because they restrict themselves. Again, their extraverted functions can help them out.

I could go on and on. If you have more situations that you urgently want to request, go ahead <3

Sword Fighting For Fic Writers: Chapter 1

It’s going to take me another day or two to finish the full guide, so I’m going to start posting these in chapters. I will continue to post one chapter a day, and also post the full guide as one monster post when it’s done. I may refer to future chapters in these, those will be turned into links as chapters become available.

You can follow the tag #Swords for Fics if you want to keep up without following me :) There will be around 12 chapters or more.

My background: Hey there! I’ve been training in the Italian method of sword fighting for about 7 or 8 months now. So I’d say I’m still quite the novice but I’ve learned a lot and I’d like to share some of that with you all! I’ve trained with two handed swords, one handed swords, sword and buckler, dual swords, dagger, spears, quaterstaff, and poleaxe. (Not rapiers though, sorry.) I also have a “writing” background in animation and illustration.

What’s this for?: As I discovered when trying to storyboard a fight a year ago, action scenes are a pain to write when you don’t know your options. There are a ton of great fics out there with great swashbuckling adventure, and you all do an amazing job at bringing out the most important part of any fight: how the characters feel about it. And while that’s often all you need for good story telling, this is for writers who want to spend more time playing in that action.

Terminology?: There’s a lot of terminology in sword fighting that the general audience won’t understand, or may not even share the same names depending on the school of sword fighting. I’ll be using some terminology as I learned it, but will mostly try to describe things in layman’s terms.

THIS WILL COVER MAINLY ONE AND TWO HANDED SWORDS THAT CAN BE USED FOR SLASHING. 
Though a rapier could be considered a one handed sword, it is used differently and I don’t have sufficient knowledge to go in depth for them. 

So let’s get started!

Available Chapters:
1: Dumb Ways to Die  2.May Your Blade Be True! 3.On Your Guard!
4. Making the Cut 5.Stick ‘em With the Pointy End 6.It’s Like a Dance
7.The Measure of a Man 8.A Crossing of Blades 9.Like Chess, but with Knives
An Interlude About Story Telling
10.You Can Barely Lift Your Sword 11.Buckle Some Swash 12.Dual Wielding
13.Everything is a Weapon 14.Got Your Sword!

As a companion piece to my previous diagram, here is the Imperial Senate at the time of its dissolution in 0 BBY/ABY.

Government

- Galactic Integralist Party (1136 seats): After the formation of the Empire, the reactionary elements of the Expansion and Republican Parties, as well as the Core Alliance, took control of and merged the three parties, forming the Galactic Integralist Party. Senators from the Liberal and Corporate Parties soon defected to the new political alliance as well, sensing the opportunity for favorable treatment in the New Order. Also commonly called the Imperialist Party, the GIP is far-right and fervently pro-Empire, promoting expansion of the Empire’s borders and consolidation of the Emperor’s powers. Elections in sectors controlled by the GIP are more often than not marred by voter suppression and electoral fraud, giving the party a permanent majority. Without any true legislative power, the GIP’s constant majority in the Senate serves to present an image of popular support for Emperor Palpatine’s policies, an image fewer and fewer believe every day. The GIP is led in the Senate by Orn Free Taa, formerly of the Liberal Party.

Official Opposition

- Progressive Party (892 seats): After the rise of the Empire, as the Liberal Party fell apart due to opportunistic Senators defecting to the GIP, the Progressive Party founded by Padme Amidala and Bail Organa began to grow into a large and robust organization as the horrors of the Empire became apparent. Energized by a rebellious spirit, Progressive Senators are known for their fiery proclamations of dissent in the Senate chambers themselves, and despite the party’s inability to actually stop any of Palpatine’s policies, the citizens of Progressive sectors view it as the last hope for a peaceful restoration of the Republic. Palpatine views the Progressive Party as a useful tool, channeling public anger and frustration at his rule into a toothless and powerless outlet, rather into militant rebel cells which pose an actual threat. Many Progressive Senators also secretly serve as the civilian government of the Rebel Alliance. The Progressive Party is jointly led by Mon Mothma and Leia Organa.

- Constitutionalist Party (51 seats): Officially a part of the opposition coalition, the Constitutionalist Party’s decline continued under the Empire, and at the time of the Imperial Senate’s dissolution it has reached its nadir in terms of representation in the Senate. The Constitutionalist Party’s continued presence in the Senate is due mostly to strong support from the Empire’s autonomous regions, such as Bothan and Herglic space. The Constitutionalist Party is led by Polo Se’lab of Bothawui.

Other Opposition Parties

- Liberal Party (30 seats): The Liberal Party continues to exist as a remnant of its former self. With its centrist, progressive, and conservative wings all splitting from the party, the Liberals have only limped along on the strength of their social liberal wing. The Liberals are opposed to the Empire, but condemn violent rebellion, deluding themselves into believing in the possibility of convincing Palpatine to restore the Republic peacefully. In fact, the greatest amount of resistance to the Empire that the Liberals have put up is a proposal to change the party’s name to the Liberal Democratic Party, to demonstrate its commitment to democracy. The proposal was ultimately voted down. The Liberal Party is led by Pooja Naberrie of Naboo.

- Anti-Jedi Party (12 seats): The reactionary Anti-Jedi Party briefly enjoyed a surge of support in the wake of the supposed coup attempt by the Jedi against Palpatine, but as the Jedi Purge progressed and the GIP arose as a larger reactionary party with greater official support, the AJP lost much of its purpose. The AJP found new life in opposition to the Empire, thanks to a rumor begun by former AJP Senator Chelo that Emperor Palpatine was, in fact, a secret Jedi. The party’s continuing hardline conservatism, however, has failed to win it much support. The AJP is led by James Ortell Donovan of Mindabaal.

- Reform Party (6 seats): Although he was a founding member of the Progressive Party, Senator Garm Bel Iblis realized that concentrating all of Emperor Palpatine’s political opponents into one party was a dangerous proposition, and left the Progressives to join the Reform Party, even as many Reformers were defecting to the Progressives. The Reform Party soon reunited with its Radical offshoot, and the current Reform Party offers a louder, more aggressive, and more radical vision of resistance and rebellion than the Progressives, partially an attempt by Bel Iblis to distract Palpatine’s attention from Progressive leaders who pose more of a threat. The Reform Party is led by Garm Bel Iblis of Corellia.

Tumblr blocked your new post because "it might contain sensitive media"?????

Yes, I am aware. Believe me I’m aware. I’ve gotten a flood of messages since tumblr first unveiled it’s safe mode feature, telling me half of my post were getting blocked. I’m pretty sure it’s becuase of my cursing, which apparently nobody under 18 can hear or else they’ll burst into flames. From now on im going to try and keep the vulgarity to a minimum, even though NONE of my posts today have had curse words in them???

So as some of my followers know, music is a big part of my art process and some people have asked if I could share my playlists for my respective ships, I originally started the playlists on my own ipod but i’ve since put them up on spotify so that I can share them! Here’s the links to each of the one’s I have, and I will always be adding music onto them as I find songs that inspire me. 

Clexa

Supercorp

Wayhaught

Sanvers

Cophine

Bonus:

Trimberly

I will also make a direct link to this post on my tumblr home page for easy access and future reference! 

Feel free to suggest songs you think fit the characters, I’m always looking for new stuff to add! And if anyone is curious about my music choices I’m always up for answering questions like that.

I tried to put order of the ships that are in this fandom and ended up like this. Even when I don’t reblog everything this will be useful anyway, for me and for my followers.

It was really funny to do, and thanks Sugar Tits for your help <3

Lightning knew something was…off before she‘d even opened her eyes, or had even completely woken up. She couldn’t say what it was, exactly, but everything just felt….not right.

And then it hit her: she was lying on a mattress.

Her eyes immediately shot open and she sat up so quickly, it was a wonder she didn’t give herself whiplash. She glanced around the room, heart pounding as it quickly dawned on her that she recognized absolutely nothing about where she was.

But besides being unfamiliar, even the furniture and décor just looked strange in a way that she couldn’t quite describe. It looked like it wasn’t Cocoon-made at all, nor did it have the weird qualities associated with something from Pulse. Even the sheets that were twisted around her legs felt weird.

Instinctively, she looked around for her gunblade, but it was nowhere to be seen. In fact, there was nothing in her immediate view that suggested anything here belong to a solider – no weapons, no gloves or boots, no pouches for ammo…nothing.

Even so, she knew she couldn’t just sit here and wait for something to ambush her.

Lightning slowly crawled out of the bed – which she just now noticed was enormous, unlike her much more reasonable mattress back on Bodhum – and tiptoed across the room to press her ear to the door. She could hear something – or someone – moving around, so she immediately made the decision to check it out, despite being completely unarmed.

As soon as she opened the door, it was instantly made clear that she was in a house…but whose house, she couldn’t really say. There were photos on the wall, but she didn’t want to stop to look at them. They seemed almost blurry, anyway; like the images were at the corner of her eyes and would vanish if she tried to look.

No matter. Her priority right now was to find out the source of that noise…

There.

She heard running water and the sound of dishes clinking. With a frown, she peeked through the open doorway, her heart pounding so hard she almost felt lightheaded.

There was someone – a man? - standing at the sink doing the dishes. Her hackles immediately went up since she didn’t recognize him, but the more she stared, the more it dawned on her that there was something…familiar about him.

It couldn’t be! This person was almost a head taller than her, so how…?

She must have made a noise, because the man suddenly turned around, his slight confusion quickly melting into a little smile.

There was absolutely no mistaking it.

“Hope…?” she croaked out, actually needing to take a step back. What the hell was going on here?!

“Good morning, Light.” He didn’t seem deterred by her confusion – or maybe he just didn’t notice – and quickly crossed the room, his arms easily wrapping around her like he’d done this a thousand times. “I was wondering when you’d get up. You slept pretty late…at least for you,” he added teasingly.

“I…” She brought her hands up to his chest, intending on pushing him away, but something stopped her. “What’s going on? Are you actually Hope?” She had to struggle to keep her voice level. “Where am I…?”

“Shhh.” He pulled her a bit closer, one hand moving to cradle the back of her head. “It’s okay, Light. You’ll get there.”

“Get where?!”

“You’ll see. I know we can make it happen. We can all make miracles, Light.”

At this, she finally pushed him away, her eyes wide. “What are you talking about?!”

“You know.”

Before she could say anything else, there was a blinding flash of light that blocked everything out.

When she was finally able to open her eyes, they were no longer Cie'th.

It might have been a glimpse of the future, or it could’ve been a new Focus. She didn’t know how, when, or if that future shown to her would come to pass. None of it made any sense and there was little chance of her ever getting an explanation.

All Lightning could do was exchange a glance with Hope and move forward to do what needed to be done, wondering if the answers would ever greet them.

MCU Danny Rand, as presented in IF S1

And here’s everything about Danny – facts, character, significant interactions, etc. For reference so I don’t have to go searching through the text again.

- Born April fool’s day!

- Heir to 51% ownership in a valuable biochem company. A company his dad started with Harold Meachum. It’s unclear what his role in the company is other than that – he said he wanted to be involved, because it’s his name, but I don’t think he much does, really. He cares about his dad’s legacy, and that it’s a tool that can potentially be used for good, but that’s about it. Happy to leave the daily grind to Ward.

- Homeschooled. Good lord.

Can I request some RusGer during IIWW? Or maybe some GerAme

Uuuuuuuuuhh not really because I don’t think WWII is the appropriate setting for romance, particularly not romance involving literal Nazi Germany and the Soviet Union.

I’ve drawn like one 1939 sketch that could be seen as shipping, but in the end isn’t really about romance lmao; it’s been sitting in my files for ages now so might as well post it I guess. But for future reference: no WWII romance with Lud on this blog.
