really fantastic stuff

“…It’s great when they do appreciate what you do, and no matter what you do there will be some people out there that do appreciate it. But frankly, those that don’t, it doesn’t matter if it’s your own personal enjoyment. You gotta take what you have, and you gotta, like, appreciate it for what it is and you gotta let it grow inside you for the personal growth that it is and not for everyone else.”

An important message and one that I think a lot of people need to listen to and understand (x)

Sometimes I wonder if people can see how well done Cullen’s story is. Addiction is an ugly, ugly thing, and somewhere in between all of the withdrawal angst and comfort and meta analysis and stuff… I just kind of think of how *important* what he is trying to do is. 

The funny thing about addiction is that you have to really want to beat it. You have to make yourself push past the days where it is just too hard, when your own body is actively fighting against you. Not only does Cullen do that, but he does it when surrounded by his own fears (out of control magic, demons, abominations, plus the lyrium that must be all over skyhold for the Inquisition’s Templars) and while leading an entire fucking army.

So it’s not just fodder for the angst canon, it’s not just a difficult thing to do. You are literally at war with your own mind and body, and I sometimes get a little distressed when I hear that the Cullen romance is “boring” or “vanilla” or “cliche.” Aside from the fact that not everything has to be melodrama and kink and ~unusual,~ being involved and caring for a recovering addict (because they are always recovering, the temptation is always there) is never “boring,” and shouldn’t be reduced to a “cliche” just because the character isn’t an overtly special snowflake.

I spent the morning reading Naoki Urasawas manga Pluto
and let me tell you it was so good! Check it out if you get time, 
it’s a fantastic story. I just had to draw Atom.

miniwaves  asked:

What are these tales games?? I would love to start a new series of games.

The Tales games are JRPGs that are INSANELY fun and pretty relevant to real-world issues. Like most of them have complex characters, an underlying message, amazing music, and an engaging battle system (similar to Final Fantasy where it’s more ‘free-style’ rather than turn-based). I’m not very good at explaining things, but I’ll list a few of my favorite things about the games.

There’s these random little scenes called ‘skits’ and they honestly add a whole new level of involvement to the story / game because you get to better understand the characters’ points of view, plus they’re usually pretty funny. At the end of battles the characters have little bits of dialogue that are pretty cute (especially Tales of Graces OMG), and you also can dress the characters in cute outfits with accessories.

I HIGHLY recommend Tales of Vesperia (Xbox 360) for first-timers because it’s a great introduction to the series since it has ALL the qualities listed above and the protag is a sassy crimeboy like Akira. LMAO But the character development is incredible and the graphics are nice to look at. The battle mechanics are easy to grasp and there isn’t too much grinding. Here’s a few screenshots from Vesperia:

Anyway, I hope this was somewhat helpful??? LMAO I’m not good at explaining things, and it also depends on the consoles you have; most of the popular Tales games are on PS3. ;A; But I could talk about my love for these games all day, and I hope you give the series a chance!! ^^

Friday Favorites Fic Rec

This week!!! I read some really fantastic stuff this week, ngl. Here’s the highlights!

Down in Flames by Standinginanicedress (Teen Wolf/Sterek)

This is a series and it checks off a few of my favorite things: werewolves are known, established relationship problems, and celebrity problems. The one hang up I had was the way the PR machine moved around author Derek, but that was more a ‘I work in this industry and this is not how things go’ than an actual issue. It’s fantastically done and the way the author writes a writer & the relationship issues of being with one was spot on. I loved the series and read all three in a day.

[Sleep]Walking After You by reneafanel  (Teen Wolf/Sterek)

This made me giggle enough my husband kicked me out of bed because I kept waking him up. Stiles is adorably spastic and Derek is ridiculously creeper and the scene where Laura texts Stiles about the flowers made me cry I was laughing so hard.

Read it. Seriously.  

A Hale for the Holidays by rlnerdgirl  (Teen Wolf/Sterek)

FAKE DATING! And CHRISTMAS! It was so fluffy it hurt, y’all. So. FUCKING. FLUFFY.

The Blur of our Wandering by destimushi (Supernatural/Destiel) 

Ah, another fucking amazing story by @destimushi. I really liked the brokenness of Cas and Dean in this and the way it felt like I was there. Girl has a talent for building a scene and throwing so much emotion at you, you aren’t really sure what happened.

Derek Hale’s No-Good, Very Bad Day by Mackem  (Teen Wolf/Sterek)

What did I love about this one—every. freaking. thing. Stiles is left at home while the pack trains and gets a frantic call from Scott about how pissy Derek is being and after he hands up, talks to Derek, who is hiding under Stiles’ bed. The sulky petulant snit that Derek is having is perfection and Stiles just rolling with his grumpy ass is fantastic and really, just read it because it’s lovely.

Ok, that’s it for me, friends! What are y’all reading?

anonymous asked:

Safari Man probably isn't as freaked out about it anymore but it's still a shock to find them going at it on the kitchen floor. I mean, come on guys can't you just at least do that in the bathroom? Or not in front of the fridge?

They can’t do it on Frank’s bed at least? He don’t need to see this shit man. He just want fruit gushers or something, a capri sun, idk I feel like he eats weird portable snack things. Anyway, he just want a capri sun and a lunchables, not a free lycra humping show. He good. He real good.

James Le Lacheur as Scorpius Malfoy: Part One

Yesterday I had the immense pleasure of seeing James’s debut as Scorpius. I didn’t know when I bought the tickets on Monday that there would be a cover on, although I had been wildly speculating based on absolutely zero evidence that Anthony might be off this week. When it turned out to actually be true I was really very excited! 

Because I was sitting in returned seats (I was up in the balcony) I can’t give you massive amounts of details about facial expressions and things (which I’m very sad about), but below are all the notes I can muster, and of course, if there’s anything I don’t cover, feel free to ask! 

I can never stop typing once I’ve started these notes, so again this will be split into two parts! Part two can be found here

sweet fuck am i glad i didn’t have cartoon network when i was a kid

i like adult swim and the creepy shows they make from time to time (AS AN ADULT, if i saw that shit as a kid i might have died prematurely) but i only just found out about “the dawn is your enemy” bump holy shit i swear that is the fucking creepiest thing i have ever seen in my whole life since the “have you dreamt this man?” posters

when i was a kid i had insomnia issues and sometimes stayed up watching tv till dawn. there is a 70% chance that if i had cartoon network back then i would have seen that bump at 6am and again, idk what it would have done to me as a kid lmao i might have legit collapsed
