practical but not romantic

Moon Signs 3

Moon in Aries: You have instinctive reactions to people, and you immediately form your judgments. Your enthusiasm is easy to elicit, as is your anger. When you are in doubt, you immerse yourself in the activity. You are action-oriented, impetuous and determined, but you can also be selfish, irritable, impatient and abrupt. You make your needs known. When you were a child, your mother had to react to your impetuous demands. It was necessary. As a result, you have perceived him as a dynamic person. She taught you, for example, to be independent.

Moon in Taurus: On the emotional level, you are cautious, trustworthy and enjoyable. You react slowly, but once you have decided to devote yourself to something, it’s for the long run. You are stable, but obstinate. In case of doubt, you refuse to move in the least centimeter. But you suffer in times of change. When you were a child, you desperately sought the safety of a present and caring parent. It’s likely your mother tried to be that for you.

Moon in Gemini: You are fickle, agitated, dashing, and you have a clear speech. You express your feelings with spirit and intelligence. But you take a basically cerebral approach to your emotional problems. Though you tend to worry, analyzing your own reactions brings you a dose of calm, and you adapt easily to change. As a child, you were agitated, curious and easily distracted.

Moon in Cancer: The Moon governs the sign of Cancer, and therefore no matter what else happens in your card, you are a lunar person: changing mood, receptive, sentimental, and supremely conscious of the continual flow of your emotions. Tears coqme easily, and the past exercises a magnetic influence on you. You are probably very affectionate and remarkably committed to your loved ones.

Moon in Leo: The Moon in Leo adds heat, luster and exuberance to any solar sign. You consider yourself an outstanding number. Although your pride is easily crumpled, you are generally confident and happy. But when things do not go as you wish, you conceal the doubts you have about yourself and your ambivalence by a firework of emotions.

Moon in Virgo: Shy in terms of emotions, you prefer to repress them rather than express them. You try to be discreet, and you may find it difficult to cope with major problems. Instead, you divert your attention by focusing on details or working so hard that you barely have time to think. You are industrious, you have practical sense and you are helpful.

Moon in Libra: You are gracious, kind, romantic and diplomatic. You avoid vulgarity and try to express your feelings in a balanced and reasonable manner. Love and relational life are indispensable to your well-being, and you can barely imagine life without a partner. But you also enjoy serenity, and you will do what is necessary to achieve this elusive goal.

Moon in Scorpio: Passionate and easily crumpled, you are a complex person. Stubborn, intense, and sometimes self-destructive, you express your feelings indirectly and you often try to keep them secret, which may require a certain amount of manipulation. You avoid confrontation in terms of emotions: you feel that it is safer.

Moon in Sagittarius: You have a philosophic attitude, you are frank, cheerful and generous. Well-intentioned and idealistic, you are also a risk taker who depends on his independence and will do anything to preserve it. When a problem arises, you tend to look for rational explanations. It is easier for you to take action than emotions. You may believe that you are always right, even if it is not, which can inadvertently hurt you. But your optimism eventually comes back, and you embark on a new adventure.

Moon in Capricorn: You are stable, reserved and well disciplined. You know your limits. You may be pessimistic and sad because, in one way or another, the typical joy of childhood has passed you by. Reserved and complexed, you feel more stable and calm when you succeed. The exuberance of feelings and the dramas of other people make you anxious. But in times of crisis, you take responsibility. When you are in control, you experience a sense of authority and control that you try to maintain with great effort.

Moon in Aquarius: In the depths of yourself, you consider yourself a sort of Crusader or pillar of good works of charity. You like to think that you are able to make a difference in the world. Whatever else you see in your natal chart, you are attracted by what is original and non-conformist. It is difficult for you to express your emotions and you can give people the impression of being reserved. In reality, you do not know what to do with your feelings, and you are trying to pretend you do not.

Moon in Pisces: You are gentle, sentimental, influential and compassionate. But each emotional wave puts you down. Extremely sensitive and easily injured, you also possess a very fine intuition. When you act upon it, you are well. Although you may be dreamy and sometimes lack practical sense, it is imperative that you protect yourself emotionally.

A knock sounded on the door. Wade Wilson was on his feet and pirouetted his way to the door in a matter of seconds, flinging it wide open.

“Thank Thor (or Loki)! I was about to starve!

The kid at the door looked on, vaguely unimpressed at Wade’s antics. “Are you the mister Pool comma Dead who ordered a large, uh… pineapple olive, large anchovy mushroom, and large special order of four cheese with… mozzarella sticks as the topping?” he recited the order in a bored drawl, but there was a hint of judgement in his tone. So Wade liked his pizzas with a bit of zest and creativity. Was it a crime? Part of Wade hoped it was, how thrilling would it be to live on the run from the cops for daring to order a pizza outside the conventional system? It would make a great movie! He should write it, he could make millions-

“I’m taking that as a yes,” Pizza kid said, clearing his throat loudly. “If you could maybe pay for these, I gotta get going.” He shifted the pizzas in his grip with a peeved look on his face.

Okay, rude. It’s not like Wade had made him stand there for… Wade checked his watch. Oh. Nearly five minutes. Okay, maybe he’d been dissociating a bit longer than he realized. “My bad,” Wade said, reaching for his wallet, “what do I owe ya for, pretty boy?”

Centering whiteness in the craft.

I’ve been into the occult for as long as I can remember. At 8 I was checking out books on satanism, vampirism, and witchcraft from the library, at 10 I started doing my own spells and interacting with Faefolk, at 13 my mom told me about the spell work she used to do growing up. I have grown a lot since those days of building fairy houses in my front yard out of rocks and flowers and leaving little offerings of honey or juice in exchange for good luck or help finding something I lost, and in those years of navigating the pagan and witch communities both online and off, reading books nonstop, blogs nonstop, etc, I noticed a trend. 

Paganism, the occult, and the craft are all very very white. Not only that but whiteness is centered as the one and only way to participate in these interests. First it started in the wiccan books I read as a child, the “white vs. black” magic that is shoved down the throats of aspiring wiccans and witches and eventually they spew it back at anyone else who will listen. If you’ve been on my blog a bit, you already know my gripe about white or black magic. If you haven’t browsed my blog or been there for my rants here is the nitty gritty: The idea at it’s simplest is rooted in colorism and racism, where white is seen as good and black or darkness seen as bad, this trope has been carried over into many different movies and books featuring magic as the villian who usually practices “black” magic has darker features, dark skin, dark eyes, dark hair, while the good characters practice white magic and as such represent purity with their fair skin and hair and eyes. Not only this but historically the magic and practices of those of color, brown and black people, have been demonized for centuries while magic performed by white people are seen as some kind of fairy tale, quirky, beautiful, sipping tea by a potted plant, aesthetic.

So I wanted to outline some of the new topics outlined in the new California history-social sciences curriculum to include and celebrate LGBTQ+ history. Because it’s something I’ve been doing a lot of research into and I just think it’s absolutely fantastic. The following is copied from the “Making the Framework Fair” document - a report from the Committee on LGBT History. It’s a comprehensive list of the topics proposed.

> Grade 2: 

• LGBT families in the context of understanding family diversity as a contemporary and historical reality 

>Grade 4: 

• Central roles played by gender and sexuality in California’s history as a site of rich, contested, and changing diversity 

- How settlers and missionaries sought to impose European American concepts of gender and sexuality on Native American societies 

- Possibilities and motivations for same-sex intimacies and gender diversity in frontier conditions and the Gold Rush era 

- The role of gender and sexuality in nineteenth- and early twentieth-century migrant belonging and policing 

- The crucial place of California and Californians in the development of the modern LGBT rights movement 

>Grade 5: 

• Variation over time, region, and culture in colonial American practices and laws with regard to gender and sexuality 

- Native American gender and sexual diversity and European responses in the context of North American colonialism 

- Regional diversity in family and community arrangements, gender roles and possibilities, and approaches to sexuality in law and practice, with attention to Puritans, Quakers, Southern settlers, and enslaved Africans 

>Grade 8: 

• Fundamental transformations in gender and sexuality in conjunction with nineteenth-century urbanization and industrialization 

- Same-sex romantic friendship as an accepted cultural practice resulting from the separate spheres ideology and shifting gender expectations for women and men 

- Roles of gender and sexuality in the practice and struggles over slavery and emancipation 

- Interlocking ways that gender, sexuality, and race shaped Western expansionism and the diverse possibilities it presented 

- Evolving social and cultural expressions of intimacy between men and women (including same-sex relations) through urbanization and immigration

>Grade 11: 

• The evolution of modern LGBT communities and identities 

- Relationships formed in the late nineteenth- and early twentieth-century female worlds of settlement houses, women’s colleges, and social movements

- Sexual and gender diversity in early twentieth-century cities and cultural movements, including the Harlem Renaissance 

- The impact on approaches to same-sex sexuality, gender diversity, and cultural expression of 1920s changes in sexual and gender norms, including Prohibition, the rise of dating, and the emphasis on companionate marriage

- New possibilities in World War II for same-sex intimacy, community, and identity on the homefront and abroad 

- The postwar creation of vibrant if persecuted LGBT subcultures 

- The formation of open and expressive LGBT cultures and communities since the 1970s 

- Contemporary diversity of LGBT people, families, and relationships 

• Twentieth-century persecution of sexual and gender minorities and the related growth of the LGBT civil rights movement 

- The medicalization of homosexuality and gender diversity as pathological and the subsequent struggle against this perspective

 - Systematic World War II attempts to eliminate gay men and lesbians from the military and the establishment of a regime of dishonorable discharge that denied many veterans their rights to benefits 

- The Lavender Scare targeting gay men and lesbians, which developed in conjunction with the postwar Red Scare and exceeded its impact in both time and scope 

- Homophile, gay liberation, and contemporary LGBT movements as part of the story of civil rights activism in the United States 

- Anti-gay activism as part of the rise of the New Right 

- AIDS as a medical, political, and social issue in U.S. history 

- Court cases about same-sex sexuality and gender diversity demonstrating changes in policies and public opinion over time


This is super exciting news for parents and teachers in California. Hopefully the rest of the U.S. follows suit quickly. It’s also important to note that teachers aren’t really being forced to teach these subjects, nor are they yet included in textbooks, worksheets, or other teaching tools very widely. Teachers are receiving trainings, but it will take years to disseminate this throughout the state. 

わたしの獣 真山勇成編 (Watashi no Kemono • Mayama Yuusei Hen)

Venerdi has announced a new CD in the works!

Synopsis (Paraphrased):

For the purpose of research, you, a smut manga artist, have purchased “certain goods”—only to have them be discovered by the local deliveryman, 真山勇成 (Mayama Yuusei). 

But just as you are about to explain yourself, Yuusei becomes flustered and runs off… 

After this incident, you find yourself growing closer to Yuusei, a physical and lively type whose personality contrasts with your own.

“I’ll carry you to bed promptly and courteously. I know I look this way, but I am known as the best delivery driver at my workplace for a reason. Well… this is the first time that I’m carrying something for my own purposes, though.”

And so, here is the humble, normal love story between you and Yuusei.

CV: 昼間真昼 (Yashiro Taku)

Release Date: April 28th, 2017.

ships passing in the night.

A quick, (hopefully) fluffy little fic featuring musician!Derek. Inspired by this prompts post of “Reunited AUs.”

now also on ao3!

Stiles is so close to getting somewhere with Derek. He can feel it.

They have inside jokes. They eat lunch together every day in the cafeteria. Stiles has found out that Derek can play like fifteen different instruments and likes to fiddle around with composing music in his spare time, and Derek knows all about Stiles’ fascination with folklore, unexplained phenomena, and The X-Files. Stiles overhears Derek telling Boyd that Stiles is a “brilliant researcher.” Derek has seen Stiles having a panic attack in the men’s restroom and talked him through it, and he went with Stiles as his (sadly platonic) plus-one to his dad’s wedding. There’s even a drunk almost-kiss at their boss Lydia Martin’s engagement party, Stiles making an idiot of himself but Derek smiling fondly anyway, and then—nothing.

“Hey, where’s Derek?” Stiles asks Greenberg when he comes in Monday morning. Derek is one of those annoyingly productive morning people and always beats Stiles to the office. Today his desk is empty. Like, weirdly empty. Stiles would almost venture to call it bare, except that makes no sense. “He’s not sick, is he? Or hungover?”

Although, as far as Stiles knows, Derek doesn’t drink.

“He quit,” Greenberg says, not looking up from the magazine he’s reading, as if this is totally normal.

There’s a strange ringing in Stiles’ ears. “Like, for the day?”

Greenberg doesn’t look up. “Like, for forever.”

It really is that sudden. One day he’s plugging away in the cubicle next to Stiles’, and the next, Stiles finds out from fucking Facebook that Derek Hale is overnight famous.

Serious Talk about Clones

There’s no cut cause I’m on mobile.

Clones have absolutely no concept of sexism or gender-bias, especially not the European kind.

They were taught by drill sergeants of both/multiple genders (depending on what culture they’re from) and definitely would have been taught by women. They don’t know about stereotypes for women or believe in any of that “men have to me masculinescaryviolent” bull that lots of fanboys want to push. They would likely just automatically reject any sexist suggestions teachers tried to make to them.

Kaminoans definitely WOULD NOT have our concept of sexism or gender bias. They do not interact with other people, and I would not be surprised if the clone project was their first extensive interaction with non-Kaminoans of multiple species. If their society has sexism (I honestly feel like it wouldn’t) then I highly doubt any of it would reach and/or influence the clones and how they viewed gender.

They have no concept of masculine and feminine within their society. It helps that it’s mostly males anyway, but they simply wouldn’t see a use for it.

So they therefore don’t have a concept of “girly”. If they come across something a civilian does that they like, they could probably just adopt it without any regard to how men are “supposed” to act. I feel like they would be highly attracted to color because of all the white they’ve always been surrounded by. Frankly I think the only thing preventing them from wearing what they want (besides the obvious) would be either plain personal choice or social stigma.

The Kaminoans also don’t have a concept of girly (or I highly doubt they do). They don’t have an interest in the clones’ cultures or personal feelings about gender and gender expression. If a clone is given the opportunity to say that he like how women’s fashion looks or that he likes how make up looks, are they gonna care? No. They want the “product” to be performing as efficiently as possible, so personal feelings about Vera Wang would be the least of their problems.

With no concept of “masculinity” or femininity as we understand it, the clones are then free to explore and express their preferred genders or gender expressions however they want (mentally).

The Kaminoans also don’t care who they’re attracted to. There would be absolutely no practical need to ask the clones who they’re sexually and/or romantically attracted to. Along with the gender roles, you wouldn’t get gay or bi clones who act any different from the straight ones, I guess besides being turned on by the different dirty holozines that older clones bring back.

So no clones would act girly or be overtly masculine or anything like that. Kaminoans would have 0 interest in their genders or sexualities because a) clones wouldn’t be talking to them about that, and b) being gay or trans doesn’t in ANY WAY affect their performance as soldiers. Sexuality and gender identity have zilch to do with whether or not they can complete trials or reload guns efficiently enough to survive battle. The Kaminoans don’t even want the clones to be in relationships to begin with, so any attraction a clone DOES feel will be met with “Your duty is to the republic, not for reproduction.” Which is true.

So gay clones and trans clones can exist–they DO exist. I want fanfic writers and commenters to stop acting like the Kaminoans give a hoot about how a clones acts in terms of gender expression or sexuality. They don’t. They can’t. It’s irrelevant. Stop fucking telling me gay and trans clones would have been culled for “deviation” I highly doubt the walking Q-tips even gave half a shit about Jango’s sexuality or gender.

It's raining, I want to write, here is more 12th House information
  • Aries/Mars in the 12th House: Hidden aggression,inner intensity festers beneath, might explode one day, losses of power or feeling weak are themes. In undeveloped stage is passive, timid, shy, secret with anger and advances, not connected to sexuality and their passion.
  • Taurus/Libra/Venus in the 12th House: Identity attached to others, lack of confidence, could struggle to form healthy bonds with women in their life. Can struggle with their own feminine part. In undeveloped stage is easily ashamed yet ruled by materialism, fears romantic relationship, doesn't practice self love.
  • Gemini/Virgo/Mercury in the 12th House: Has issues with communication and independence, has many intellectual insecurities. Wants to grow but unsure how. In underdeveloped stage seems closed-minded, doesn't like to share a lot, facts and opinions get mixed. Can easily be mislead by bad information in early stages.
  • Cancer/Moon in the 12th House: Emotions get lost, intuition is off, fear and caution keep them back. In underdeveloped stage acts tough, pretends to be colder than they truly are, attachments and healing are unhealthy.
  • Leo/Sun in the 12th House: There is caution towards leadership, so much tangled up in the ego and confidence, creativity could be blocked. In underdeveloped stage avoids leadership, always goes the practical route rather than creative, shies away from groups. Could be stingy, easily kept down, and highly muted in early stages.
  • Scorpio/Pluto in the 12th House: Secretive, dark traits are rarely faced, intensity completely buried, can drown in emotion. When underdeveloped is easily overpowered, can't deal with lack of control, doesn't see own darkness, sexuality is hurt. Underdeveloped= Hides secret from ones self. Developed= Discovers them but keeps them from others. Secrets will always be apart of them.
  • Sagittarius/Jupiter in the 12th House: Prepare for belief crisis, judgmental, blocks to personal growth, possible lack of energy. When underdeveloped luck doesn't seem to be on their side, easily disillusioned, avoids growth and progressive change. Must learn to make their own luck.
  • Capricorn/Saturn in the 12th House: Fear of failure is crippling, ambition stunted, materialism consumes, responsibilities are a threat not purposeful. In underdeveloped stage never seems to gain authority, doesn't believe in their own worth.
  • Aquarius/Uranus in the 12th House: Lack of individuality and self-acceptance, follower, desires independence but can't figure out how to accomplish this. When underdeveloped hates change, gives into peer pressure, suppresses rebel tendencies.
  • Pisces/Neptune in the 12th House: Insecurity towards being used or giving, beliefs might harm them in some way, finds it hard to connect with others. When underdeveloped hops from relationship to relationship, doesn't consider their emotional or spiritual health. Intellect and emotions always fighting, escapism is an unhealthy indulgence not a useful tool.

               -Please just admit you like this man so he can get comfortable MC, he’s too awkward to ask you out himself

Tips for Writing Romance from A Passionate Defender of the Genre

Here’s the thing: romance is not inherently interesting.

It’s not automatically compelling.

Romance is one of the hardest things to write, but if you’re clever and careful and pay attention, romance can also be one of the most powerful tools a writer can wield. Not only because love is a powerful and complex emotion worthy of exploration—although it is that—but because romance can function as plot, conflict, character motivation, development, world-building, etc. It can do so much heavy lifting for you, and in a way that is engaging, evocative, and tone-setting.

But you can’t simply cry “Love!” and wait for the applause. You gotta earn it.

I Was Wrong - Jughead Jones

Requests: Omg thank you so much for open book it is so so GOOD! I was wondering if maybe you could do one where jughead and the reader are dating and they get into a fight and the reader tells jughead “if you walk out that dint ever come back” and the next day jughead is in the hospital because he attempted suicide and they get back together and it’s just really fluffy

Hi there! So I really hope this was okay :/ I tried my best but obviously it’s a very sensitive topic <3

Warnings: angst, suicide attempt, swearing, sad cinnamon roll :C

Words: 3,812

This was too much for you. You knew that your boyfriend Jughead was getting in deep when he started his novel on the murder of Jason Blossom. You didn’t think much of it back then though. When he joined the Blue & Gold, you didn’t think much of it. When he started cancelling on you to go on sleuthing missions with Betty, is when you started to notice that it wasn’t all quite right.

It wasn’t that you were jealous, because you weren’t. Jughead and Betty had known each other for a long time, practically since childhood and you respected that. Nothing romantic had ever seemed to come from it though. You also trusted Betty not to hurt you like that, she was one of your best friends and was opting to stay out of relationships ever since her heartbreak with Archie, she wouldn’t risk it. 

No, you were worried that he was going to get himself in trouble with the law, or that the murderer who was running around town was going to catch onto the fact that he was on their trail and would off him before he had the chance to speak out. You were scared for Jughead in every living moment and he treated it so casually, was he not even concerned for his own safety?!

He’d also been spending less time with you. You didn’t want to be clingy but with the sleuthing for the writing and the writing for now both his novel and the newspaper, he just didn’t have enough hours in the day. The two of you had a special bridge, south of Sweetwater River where he’d asked you to be his girlfriend a year ago. It was your special bridge, and you would always meet there to just sit in comfortable silence, or talk and reflect about what was going on in your lives, think about the future and try and laugh through your existential crisis. You treasured those hours. They made you feel human, normal and alive in this crazy small town, which was being torn apart by this murder… piece by piece.

You hadn’t met there in weeks. You hadn’t kissed or embraced the boy you loved in weeks. Heck, you hadn’t had a proper, deep conversation with the boy you loved in weeks. That stung deep.

The car broke you. The car took it too far.

Voltron Ember Island Players episode

here’s my pitch:

  • The Arusians put together a HUGE production that chronicles the adventures of Team Voltron, complete with costumes, special affects featuring fog machines and LED flashlights, and heavily exaggerated but smudgable makeup
  • This production shares notable similarities to 80s Voltron
    • Actor Lance also has a mullet (Lance is horrified; Keith smirks). 
    • Actor Keith wears that weirdo red racer outfit (Keith is horrified; Lance laughs till he cries)
    • Actor Pidge has that horrible gremlin voice. Pidge hides under her seat whenever her counterpart talks. 
    • Actor Allura is beautiful but faints all the time. All. The. Time. Allura eventually gets so mad she starts yelling. “Get UP you didn’t DO ANYTHING.”
    • Zarkon wears that dorky crown and outfit and constantly shouts, “I MUST CAPTURE THE AVATAR VOLTRON TO REGAIN MY HONOR THE BLACK LION”
    • Haggar cackles. Like really cackles. Full wicked witch. 
  • When the pilots are in their individual lions, they all put on cardboard kitty ears
  • When they form Voltron, a single brave Arusian comes out in a cardboard costume on stilts. Much of the cool fight choreography is just the Arusian trying to keep his balance. 
  • Actor Shiro’s robot arm is on the wrong side.
  • Actor Hunk pukes a lot, but at completely inappropriate times (when Shiro finishes a pep talk, when Lance flirts)
  • Actor Coran’s mustache is HUGE. Everyone laughs at this, but Coran is secretly jealous.
    • He eventually sneaks backstage to compare hair care routines with the actor.
  • Black Paladin Hope Speeches™
  • Actor Allura gets romantic development with practically every male on stage EXCEPT Keith. She will always love him Like A Brother *goodnatured handshake*
  • When Actor Keith discovers his Galra heritage, he is doused in purple paint and given fuzzy purple ears. He remains that way for the rest of the show. No one comments on it.
