recurring problems

i am so sick of seeing people not only steal gifs, but reblogging them. people have stolen my gifs before, and every time i see them gain hundreds of notes, my heart sinks. reblogging stolen gifs is just as bad at the person stealing the gifs. you are contributing to stolen work and that is not okay. so, to make sure you don’t accidentally pull the douche move of reblogging a repost, let’s go over a few signs to tell if a gifset is stolen:

  • the size doesn’t match up (small and large gifs in the same set, one 250px gif taking up the whole row, etc)
  • the coloring doesn’t match up (color and black/white or a soft pastel and a harsh red being in the same gifset) 
  • the caption of it being like “OMG look at these cute babies!” or “This scene is so good!” etc (something that’s more of a comment than a caption)
  • you’ve never seen the url before
  • you go down the person’s blog and they have multiple gifsets posted, all looking as if they were made by different people
  • you can’t find the user’s edit tag (something like *, or my edit)
  • it doesn’t use edit tags (ouatedit, the100edit, arrowedit, etc)

it’s bad enough that people will steal someone else’s work and provide it to the fandom as their own, but helping them out by spreading it to others is just as bad. if a gifset is going to be stolen, make it have 0 notes, not 500. if several of these tips applies to a gifset you’ve seen, there are a few things you can do:

  • reverse google search (right click one of the gifs, go to “search google for this image”)
  • if the style of the gif looks like it was made by someone you know, go down their edit tag or message them asking if they a) made the gifset or b) know who did (as someone who makes gifs, i also know the style of several other gifmakers, and would be able to help even if it wasn’t mine!)

  • message someone else (a friend, a popular blogger, etc) and ask them if the gif seems stolen

but most importantly, if these are applying to an edit you see and you can’t tell if a gifset is stolen or not, don’t reblog it. i don’t care how good or it is, or how much emotions you get from it. don’t take the chance of reblogging something that’s stolen. there are plenty of gifs in the sea, so to speak. you will find something similar to it.

An Important PSA

IMPORTANT UPDATE: DO NOT, under any circumstances, send hate to the users below. I do not condone hate. I am merely trying to spread awareness and, with luck, get in touch with the users below. Letting them know we do not want our tracks reposted is fine, but please think about how you word it. I do not want people to get death threats or hurtful comments.

You may find the original PSA down below.



Sigh. I really did not want to have to resort to this, but this has been a problem in the fandom overall for far too long. What is this problem? Music theft.

Some of you may know that I have repeatedly asked people NOT to upload my songs to youtube, yet despite this, it is a recurring problem, and I am not alone. My fellow composers LucasPucas, Jimmythebassist, Jamangar, ZacharyChang, among others, repeatedly have their songs taken without consent by Youtubers such as Yeah, TylerNess, Horse Burgers YT, CrazyArtPhoenix, ThatCrazyAU, and more. I will add to this list as needed.

Allow me to make one thing clear: None of us are okay with this. I speak with these composers on a regular basis, both in the IF and Storyshift Discords, and we are all sick of this.

You may think it is harmless. You may even think this is exposure for our work, but here’s the thing: these people are getting traffic and subscribers for content they did not create, and sometimes they don’t even credit.

While potentially well-meaning, in my case, I make it clear that I do not want my stuff reposted, such as on my sound cloud:
“**IMPORTANT**: People have been uploading my songs to their youtube accounts without my permission. Please do not do this. I know a lot of my stuff isn’t up there yet, but I do plan to bring it over in time. If you want to use my songs for any reason, I’d like credit, and asking permission is preferred.“


Never mind all the descriptions where I also reiterate that I do not want reuploads. Because the fact of the matter is, reuploads take traffic away from the original creator, and when people don’t link back or hide the credit under lengthy descriptions, it leads people to believe that the uploader is the composer, when all they did was lazily take someone else’s work and slap it into a video editor.

I will take a moment to note that Umbra Extensions is actually one of the few music channels on Youtube that not only asks permission, but does his best to give credit where due. If more people were like Umbra Extensions, I would not be making this post.

EDIT:  I have spoken with BC Gaming and Azzy Extensions. Oka C has been removed from the list, as it seems most of the offending content has since been removed. TheYazzer has also removed my stolen works. I will leave the original message below just as an example that this is a problem, and with many channels still taking our work, this issue is far from solved. However, we would much rather solve this peacefully, so if you are one of the channels involved, please contact us. We may be unhappy, but I swear we don’t bite.

EDIT 2: I have spoken to Outershift Chara as well, and things seem to be going smoothly. I am grateful for all parties responding politely and with understanding. :D The DVLPR has also contacted me.

EDIT 3: Spoke to Autocats as well! Unfortunately, Herobrine TV refuses to remove his stolen content, claiming we don’t own it. This is not an excuse to send hate. This is merely an update on the situation.

EDIT 4: Herobrine TV has agreed to remove the stolen content. Yay!



Below is an example of a recent theft. It has since been resolved. However, I am keeping it here to outline a very real problem with many of these videos.


And for a while, it seemed like he did… only for him to put it back up behind my back. Others have noticed this, and commented accordingly. Some friends have provided screencaps here and here, in case the uploader decides to “hide the evidence,” as it were. I would link the video itself, but since this chap decided he could make money off of my work, I don’t want to give him more fodder.

I have submitted a copyright claim, and I will continue to do this for any videos that take my content without consent. However, the fact that I even have to go this far represents a huge problem in the Undertale music community. Musicians are not being treated with the respect they deserve.People assume that they can just snatch music, slap it together as a video compilation, and reap the spoils.

This has to stop. I doubt it will, but if spreading this message can make even the slightest difference, then I am sure as hell gonna try. So please, if you enjoy our music, please reblog. It will help us all out tremendously.

Thank you for your time. Your regularly scheduled IF content will return shortly

PS. I am still okay with use of my music in fandubs if credit is given. It is the shameless stealing that I do not allow.

Trying to find some A/B/O fics, attempting to see if I can like them since so many people seem to, but I’m running into a recurring problem of them being very sexist and derogatory, even while pairings are same-sex, they’re still being put into these sexist gender norms that are making me extremely angry and disgusted trying to read.

I’ve tried about seven fics so far. I’ve liked one of them, and it’s always for the same reason. This is very frustrating.

It goes without saying, but it’s interesting how they’ve made the point that Brennan is Booth’s saviour very clear at least twice [with someone close to Booth] in the last two seasons, with Jared and Aldo. They both had addiction issues because of their pasts, just like Booth, a recurring problem (as addiction always is anyway) for all three of them, and yet Booth is the only one who has always been able to pick himself up again. And while I believe Booth is a stronger personality than the two of them by nature, what’s kept him away from troubles, or helped him when he relapsed, in the past 12+ years was Brennan. Aldo had no one, and while Jared did have Padme for a while, clearly she wasn’t as strong and as devoted to him, I dare say, to do for him what Brennan has done for Booth… [and actually, that applies to Booth’s parents as well.]

I’m not sure what my point is, we all know Booth and Brennan, as mismatched as they seem to be at first sight, are actually 100% perfect for each other and save each other on a daily basis, but hearing Booth say “you’re in my corner, that’s the difference,” gave me all sorts of feelings and inspired this train of thoughts.

This dress was my granny’s when she was young and now it’s my prom dress?? I legit used to put this dress on when I was 5 and walk around with it trailing along the ground metres after me so it feels very nostalgic (and maybe a little sad) for me to try it on and have it fit perfectly. But I love it way more than anything else I tried on in the shops.  (also it doesn’t make me look shorter than I already am which was a recurring problem with all the others)

An Unusual Request

Warning: SMUT

▪️▪️▪️

It had been a long, long day for you. Entering the room, you looked over to see Mr.J on the bed, his legs crossed as he laid back, his hands behind his head. You cleared your throat and his eyes landed on your own. “Welcome home, doll face.”

You approached the bed, sitting next to him. “Hi, Puddin” you say with a pout that doesn’t go unnoticed. He sits up, attentively, “why the face?”

You shrug, “no one seems to know how to do anything right when we handle business separately.” He nods, “that’s a recurring problem I’ve also noticed, I’ll have to find a way to fix that.” You lean forward and kiss his cheek, “like ya always do Puddin.”

He grabs your waist and pulls you onto his lap, kissing your neck. His silver teeth nipped lightly at your flesh, ruby red lips caressed the marks that followed, his tongue tracing along the dips of your skin. You couldn’t help but moan at his ministrations. “Ooo Mr.J”

He kisses you and leans back, pulling you with him. You straddle either sides of him as you move forward, your fingers twirling through his green hair as your lips dance with his own.

Minutes later you’re both panting, your clothes completely removed as you look each other in the eyes. You move down and take his tip in your mouth. He groans, his hand finding a soft grip in your long tresses. You continued to swirl your tongue all over his hard cock, your head moving up and down as he guided it with his hands. He was starting to get restless, your mouth ready to milk his cock at any moment. You looked up at him, and his own gaze was already upon you.

He opened his mouth to speak, “ah-ah ahh Puddin.” Your eyes moved up his body, over his pale milky white abs, past his defined chest, up to his chiseled cheeks, until your eyes were upon his own. With a connected gaze, you took him in your mouth once more. His mouth opened slightly as he watched you intensely. His cock throbbing as you ran your hands up and down over it, your thumbs spreading his leaky precum all over. “Goodness Puddin, you’re so, so turned on by this huh?” He grunts and you move forward, placing his long, hard shaft in between your perfect tits. You begin to move your chest up and down over his cock, soft groans escaping his lips as you stuck out your tongue to touch his tip every time it surfaced to the top.

He growled at you.You had pushed yourself to your own peak and you wanted him badly. You looked back up to him. His blue orbs were glazed over with a passionate lust you’d never seen before. It melted your core and you couldn’t help but whimper. “(Y/N), baby?” he cooed, with a grin on his face.

“Y-yes Mr.J” your voice trembled, you couldn’t contain how he was suddenly making you feel. But you could feel your center starting to drip with anticipation for what he had to say.

“Ride me baby.”

You looked at him. You had never done that before, but you weren’t objective to anything new. He often held the dominance and it was rarely a passionate type of sex, at least not upfront. “Please baby”, he grabbed your waist and pulled you back to his own eye level, your body pressed against his as his breath ghosted onto your own lips, “I need this, I need you to do this.”

You bite your lips and push backwards so that your warm center is positioned over his hard cock. He lets out a low growl as he can feel your heat over top of his member.

You lower onto it and a moan escapes your lips as your head falls back. This was a new sensation you’d never felt between the two of you. “Oh god, (Y/N). His hands found your hips as he looked at your marvelous figure mounted atop of him. Your eyes found his own, and in that moment there was nothing that mattered but you and him.

You leaned down slowly as you begin to move. Moving just your hips so that you could kiss his Ruby red lips while still riding him. He groaned upon feeling how tight your perfect little pussy milked his hard cock. “Mmm, just like that baby. Oh god!” He was engulfed in the pure bliss you provided him as you moved your hips all over his now throbbing member. He began to thrust into you.

“Oh god, Puddin!!” You cried out. He had hit your spot perfectly, and it was clear he was in no mood to stop. “Oh god, Mr.J-J, please don’t stop.” You continued to ride him even harder as he met each one of your own movements with his own thrust.

“Mmm, (Y/N) baby!! I’m so fucking close!” He kissed on your neck, one arm snaking around your lower back as his other hand cupped your ass. “Tell daddy how good he’s making you feel??”

“OooOh! God! You’re m-making me feel so good d-daddy. I I-I’m going to cum, I’m so close” you panted between breaths. He grinned and started fucking you faster, building his own climax as well. His lips in a slight curve as he reaches for your peak.

Soon you’re both moaning all over each other, you let out a long high moan as your orgasm crashes into you. “I LooVe Yyou Mr.J!!” You moan out, your pussy tightening around his dick as his own orgasm pushes him over the edge.

He pulls you into his embrace, both of you still panting lightly. “I love you too Princess.” You smile as you make a mental note to ask what made him want to try that, not that you minded, but it was a new side of him that you looked forward to seeing.

I mean this in the nicest, politest way possible…
If you reblog my art (I love u forever) but PLEASE don’t say “I don’t ship this but—” or anything along those lines, even in the tags
That is the last thing the artist wants to hear. I draw these ships ‘cause I’m passionate about them, and to say such things is disrespectful to that. Please respect the artists’ passion - if you like the art but don’t ship it, that’s fine. Just keep your comments to yourself.

On 21st March 1925 Murrayfield Stadium, the home of Scottish Rugby was opened.


The first international match was held at Raeburn Place on the cricket field of the Edinburgh Academy in 1871 until the first rugby ground was built in Inverleith in 1879. It was not until 1922, following debate about moving the game to Hampden and the lease expiry at Inverleith, that a deal was accepted for the 19 acres of land belonging to the Edinburgh Polo Club.  


Murrayfield officially opened its gates on March 21, 1925, with a match against England. Scotland beat the English 14-11, watched by thousands of spectators in the standing terraces.

In 1927, just two years after opening, the Scottish Rugby Union purchased additional land creating extra pitches and two stands alongside aiding transport with two bridges and a car park.

Due to the Scottish weather posing a threat to matches, in 1959 an electric blanket style cover was laid on the grounds to protect the soil from extreme weather conditions. This lasted for over 30 years but due to recurring maintenance problems was removed in 1991.

This heating method was replaced by a new gas-heated system with hot water pipes under the soil.

In 1981, a new stand was built at the east end of the stadium which was opened, with the expansion, two electronic scoreboards were installed for the first time.
The stadium was then revamped in 1994 at a cost of £50million with new stands and floodlighting increasing the capacity to 67,800. The stadium now holds 67,144 fans with the addition of the newly installed screens.

Dear ppl with penises,

STOP telling ppl with vaginas to use less toilet paper. 

If you are guilty of doing this, you need to understand 3 very important things:

  1. Unlike for penises, one or two squares will NEVER cut it for us.
  2. If you don’t have a vagina you have no idea how much tp is necessary to keep one clean.
  3. Even if you did have a vagina, all vaginas (and their tp needs) are different anyway.

So stop it already with this misogynistic standard of tp use. We use what we use, leave us tf alone. Mmmmk? 

Sincerely,

- feministingforchange

You Are Real.

Title: You Are Real.

Pairing: Sweets x Reader (doctor/patient)

Based off of this anon request:

Oh wow oh wow oh wow excuse me while I freak out because it is CRAZY hard to find someone who writes Bones, it seems! Um do you think you could make a Sweets X reader where he talks to her about how she needs to stop invalidating her feelings or dismissing her problems? It’s a recurring problem I have, but if it’s not something you’re comfortable with then of course I don’t want you to write it.

I meant like putting her feelings aside to help other people, which is always okay but not if it’s done constantly to the point where they never vent at all. Maybe she’s kidnapped and injured and she keeps saying she’s totally fine even though it’s obvious that she’s not? 

I hope and pray that I did it justice! Thanks for requesting! Thank you, thank you for all the love, always. XOXOXO

Four radio jocks are suddenly shifted into night schedules when eerie things begin to happen; interruptions during broadcast, random voices in-between recordings, and an abundance in power interruptions exactly every 3 am.

The situation easily turns from a mere supernatural encounter to a potential murder mystery – be the killer an outsider or among the team is beyond their knowledge.
