Tarot Tip: Inverse Cards

It took me a while to get the meaning of Inverse cards.  

What is an inverse/inverted card?
This is when you flip the card over and the picture is upside down. Inverted cards have their own meaning that is usually quite different than the rightside up version. 

I heard it means the opposite
Well, no, not exactly. Some people may interpret them this way, but I find it more accurate that it means that the intent/meaning/symbolism of that card is either Repressed, or Excessive. 

Repression
You are struggling with this concept/idea.  It’s not coming as easily, or causing a battle within yourself. 
Example: if right side up the card has to do with creativity and imagination, you may be struggling with your creative juices when the card is reversed. 

Excessive
This is when the card’s meaning has gotten excessive, gone to an extreme, or become toxic. There must be Balance in all things, and when things become excessive, they ultimately become destructive.  Continuing with the example of a card to do with creativity and imagination - perhaps your imagination has run away with you.  Or you are neglecting necessary responsibilities in pursuit of creative outlet. 

How do I know which is which?
Your intuition should be able to tell you pretty quickly if you are struggling to manifest the concepts in the card, or if they have been taken to an unhealthy extreme. 

Protip: Pay special attention when there are inverse cards involving relationships.  Relationships can become toxic far too easily and your intuition may be warning you of a situation or relationship that needs to be brought back into a healthy balance. It is easy for us to let our emotions run away with us. Use your intuition and the cards to help you maintain healthy situations, and when something becomes toxic or unhealthy - take steps to resolve it or walk away if it cannot be resolved. 

We'll Be Okay (Barry Allen X Reader) (Smut)

Fandom: The Flash
Pairing: Barry Allen X Reader
Word Count: 5,736
Prompt: “Today was the first family gathering I’ve been to since we broke up and my little cousin (niece, in my fic) that absolutely adored you asked where you were and I had to lock myself in the bathroom and sit in the tub for a half an hour and look through a folder on my phone of pictures I took of you to feel okay again¨
For: myself lmaooo
Author’s Note: this is EXPLICIT!! contains (pretty poorly written) smut!! don’t read if you’re uncomfortable with that!!

You fidgeted anxiously with the sleeves of your sweater, mentally begging your family to understand that Barry wasn’t coming.

Luckily for you, they seemed to get the message when after ten minutes had passed, you remained alone (Barry was never more than ten minutes late, and since he hadn’t shown up yet…well, they knew what that meant).

Unluckily for you, one member of your family didn’t seem to get the memo.

“__y/n__! __y/n__!” Your youngest niece, Maddie, tugged at the hem of your shirt until you picked her up, settling her on your hip.

“What’s up, munchkin?” You asked, trying to press a kiss to her nose and frowning when she pulled away from you. She wrinkled her eyebrows at you and peered over your shoulder.

“Where’s Bawwy?”

Your mind went blank. What were you supposed to tell her? “He broke up with me, you’re probably never gonna see him again” would break her little heart.

“He, uh, couldn’t make it today.” You offered up reluctantly.

Her lower lip quivered as she pouted. “But Bawwy never misses my birthday!”

“I know, honeybun, I’m sorry. He had work stuff to deal with today.” A total lie.

She looked like she was about to cry for a moment, and you panicked internally. If she started crying, there was not a doubt in your mind that you would cry too. And you really didn’t feel like breaking down in front of your family members, not today, of all days.

You hadn’t wanted to come today, it would’ve been your five year anniversary with Barry, but your sister had begged you to come, for Maddie’s sake.

“Can I spend the night with you and Bawwy this weekend?” She asked hopefully, and you didn’t know what to say.

Barry had moved out of your apartment two months ago, after he told you that he had to “get away from you”. He didn’t even give you a reason aside from that, and instead gave you one last, lingering kiss before gathering up his stuff and leaving the apartment.

You didn’t go to work for the next week, unable to do anything but wallow in your misery. Barry, the love of your life, the man you were so sure you were going to marry, had broken up with you without a second thought.

“Of course you can, sweetie!” Fuckfuckfuck, that was not what you meant to say.

“Yay! Thank you, auntie!” She squealed excitedly and scrambled out of your arms, running over to her mom and telling her the good news.

Hi~ I just wanted to request RFA + V and Saeran react to meeting a really smol and chubby MC who is really self concious and insecure for the first time. Thakyooooo so much! /*** hugs

a smol and cute MC huh? sounds familiar…

SHAMELESS SELF-PROMO TIME: i’ve written one about a Chubby MC so please check it out!!


Yoosung:

  • this bubbling ball of pure joy does not understand why MC seems so uncomfortable after seeing him
  • was it his hair? was it shirt smelly? DID HE FORGET TO ZIP UP HIS FLY?!
  • he’s like low key checking himself while MC is just over there tugging nervously at her sleeves
  • it was bad cuz MC shied away from him everytime he tried to hold her hand
  • I thought this was a date??? am I going too fast or???
  • his mind was wondering to just about a million places
  • “MC, are you.. okay?”
  • “Uhm, yea, it’s just that I’m a little.. a bit..”
  • ohh now he got it
  • “It’s okay, MC, no need to feel insecure. I love you for you and also, if you’re ever worry about your height, just remember that I’m missing a few inches too so.. I’m actually kinda glad that you’re small, it also makes you 200x cuter than any other girl too” ^-^

Zen:

  • your flirtatious boy did not know when to stop
  • flirting left, flirting right, flirting upside down, flirting rightside up; anywhere, really.
  • it was no wonder MC felt a little uncomfortable - not to mention his heavenly good looks and tall, muscular structure
  • so when MC was acting real timid and insecure, Zen did the most logical thing he could think of
  • and that was
  • to lift up MC bridal style and proceed to announce his love for her in public
  • “EVERYONE CAN I PLEASE GET YOUR ATTENTION PLEASE YES THANK YOU. YOU SEE THIS SMOL AND ADORABLE GIRL IN MY ARMS WELL GUESS WHAT? WE’RE DATING!! YES I KNOW WONDERFUL AIN’T IT. AND, JUST SO YOU ALL KNOW IF ANYONE DARES TO LAY A HAND ON HER - THEY WON’T BE SEEING THAT HAND MUCH MORE AFTER THAT.”

Jaehee:

  • this girl right here IS THE REAL MVP
  • straight up the moment she sees MC she’s like 
  • “MC, don’t feel awkward or insecure, you’re amazing the way you are - take my word for it.”
  • have you ever seen eyes so full of happiness
  • MC might have been bawling idunno you decide
  • but let’s just say that the date was ABSOLUTELY AMAZING
  • Jaehee was so understanding 
  • whenever MC felt out of place or uncomfortable Jaehee would take her hand and walk them out of the situation just. like. that.
  • there was so much pride??? so much love??? it was just floating freely through the air 
  • it was impossible not to be grateful to her
  • BAEHEE IS REAL

Jumin:

  • have you ever SEEN A MAN MORE DENSE
  • like no offense to mistatrustfundkid but like??
  • excuse me sir yes hi MC is very shy around you and won’t put on that very revealing dress you bought her because she insecure
  • can you tell that i’m mad because i’m very much so
  • “MC, why won’t you wear any of the dresses I’ve bought you? I’m sure you love them.”
  • MC:
  • lookie lookie this man needs help - desperately
  • so FINALLY when he gets hit by a truckload of “hints” from everyone on the messenger
  • he apologizes
  • “I apologize for my insensitivity, please forgive me for my misunderstandings, however, I’d like to make it clear to you that there is no need to feel ‘insecure’ because I find you very appealing, actually. And it would be quite unfortunate if you were to change yourself based off of the unimportant opinions of others.”

707:

  • DID SOMEONE SAY MC WAS INSECURE?
  • it was time for ‘tickles until she forgets all the fear’ 
  • MC, at his mercy, promised that she would stop feeling bad about herself (in exchange for a break from the tickling)
  • that was his way of making her remember that he loved her for her, and that there was no need to feel uncomfortable or unhappy in her own body
  • whenever she brought it up - whether it be a simple “does this make me look fat?”
  • he’d raise his hands, threatening another tickle fest and she’d remember his punishment for doubting herself
  • it was a little inside joke that never ceased to make MC laugh 
  • trust me, this tactic worked magnificently

Saeran:

  • this boy was serious
  • seeing MC uncomfortable made him EVEN MORE awkward and quiet
  • he wanted to break the ice, but MC kept building a wall between them
  • so he decided that he was going to find out why
  • with determination, he grabbed MC by the shoulders and spun her around 
  • looking at her dead in the eye, he asked her
  • “MC, why are you trying to avoid me? Did I do something wrong? You have to tell me, or else I can’t fix it.”
  • “it’s not really you.. it’s more of just because I-”
  • no more words had to be said before he understood
  • in one swift motion, he pulled MC in for a tight hug, so tight she could barely breathe
  • “I’m sorry, I didn’t know you felt that way, but it’s okay. Okay? Everything is good.”
  • simple words with deep feelings within

V:

  • he really really reeeally wanted to take pictures of MC on their first date
  • commemorative moments and such
  • but everytime he raised the camera, she’d turn away
  • maybe she was just camera shy?
  • “MC, don’t be so shy, can we at least take a picture together?”
  • “.. no.”
  • “Why not?”
  • “because”
  • “because?”
  • “n- nevermind.”
  • this simple conversation revealed more than MC had intended to
  • he was good a reading people and their thoughts so it was easy for him to understand
  • “It’s okay, MC, I won’t take pictures if you don’t want to. But if you’re feeling insecure, trust me when I say that there’s no need to. To me, you’re beautiful the way you are, and it’s only through these lens that I can capture the beauty that I see and prove to you my words are not said on a whim.”

WOOOW the cheesiness is realz

sorry if that made you cringe? hahaha ;A;

Post Ep for The Calusari

For the @txf-fic-chicks /missing scene challenge and for @kateyes224 who requested a post ep for The Calusari. A quick moment in the aftermath of the Holvey case.

As he types up his case notes, Mrs. Holvey’s words stick to him, thick and tacky. He can’t shake them. What if it is true? What if one tragedy opens a person up to lifetime of bad luck? It certainly seems to be true in the case of the Holvey family, or what little is left of it. It was true for him too, whole life turned upside down at twelve years old. He’s never been able to get it rightside up again.

If it is true, what does that mean for the people around him…person, he amends. There’s really only one who matters these days.

There’s a soft knock on the door, her small knuckles tapping out “shave and a haircut.”

He untangles his crossed legs and sets the laptop aside as he gets up and crosses the room to let her in.

She’s in her robe already, looking like the day has finally caught up with her.

“You sure?” he asks.

“We need it for the case file,” she sighs as she shuffles in. “Let’s just get it over with.”

He’d burned through an entire roll of film at the Holvey house, bagged and tagged every little bit of evidence he could get his hands on. Scully had been curiously short on details so he had to extrapolate based on the scene. It looked roughly as though a tornado had swept through. Scully’s movements had become more and more tentative as they worked through the room, which was when he realized that she might have taken a little more a beating than she’d let on.

He pulls the lens cap off and puts the camera between himself and her as she drops the robe, letting it hang at her waist. The alabaster skin of her back is streaked with maroon and purple blooms.

Do not pity her. She doesn’t want it. Collect the evidence.

He clicks the shutter, the sound making him jump a little every time. She is stock still.

“Enough?” she asks, her voice thin.

“Yeah, I got it,” he says, looking away as she draws the robe back up and pulls it tight.

“Did you take something?” he asks as he puts the camera away.

“Yeah, a couple Ibuprofen,” she says as she sits down at the little hotel table and looks absently at the evidence bags full of dust and other odds and ends collected from the Holvey house.

He stands and watches her for a moment, her eyes tired and wandering.

“Did I ever tell you that my family lost a baby?” she asks without looking up.

“No, you didn’t.”

“Between me and Charles. I don’t really remember. I was three, I think. Anyway, he came too early, his lungs weren’t developed enough.”

“A brother?”

“Patrick,” she says. “I never even saw him. I’ve only ever been to his grave once or twice. It was so heartbreaking for my mom. I remember her crying and crying when she was pregnant with Charlie because she was so terrified that it was going to happen again.”

“The case reminded you?” he asks as he sits down across from her.

“It did,” she says, her voice very far away.

“Charlie Holvey has a tough road ahead,” he says.

“He does,” she says, finally looking at him. “What’s happened to him is a tragedy. But he’s not marked now, Mulder. He’s not a Typhoid Mary of evil.”

She reaches out and squeezes his hand, a silent “and neither are you.”

“Bad things happen to all of us and we just go on,” she says as she stands up.

She drifts away and closes the door behind her. He stares at it for longer than he ought to. Maybe everything isn’t as upside down as he thought.

To any stoner out there; reblog to help a fellow stoner:

Step 1: Put the weed in the grinder.
Step 2: Flip the grinder upside down, so the weed is on the bottom, keef collecter on top; then grind.
Step 3: Turn rightside up and open the chamber where the ground up weed is and place a coin inside. Once done, retighten with coin inside.
Step 4: Shake the grinder side to side, up and down, whichever you prefer for about one or two minutes
Step 5: Untighten both the ground up weed chamber and keef collecter and see your results.

(The keef picture is how much I have after only 1.5 G’s of weed and the picture with the quarter dollar shows how fine it makes the weed that isn’t small enough to be keef.)

anonymous asked:

Twist Sara throws Reyes,Scott and Alec in a zero-g chamber so they work everything out. "Doors closed until you all fix this and talk" *undiscerable screaming*

Reyes spends the entire time floating above Alec and Scott totally checked out from the situation. He got over his beef a LONG time ago. He doesn’t want to be involved in this shit storm.

Eventually though, Scott grabs him by the ankle and jerks him down. They’re still screaming. Reyes still doesn’t know what exactly it’s about but he’s so tired. It’s been three hours. 

“LOOK SARA LET ME OUT I FORGAVE ALEC A LONG TIME AGO-”

Alec’s offended and confused. “Forgiven me? Do you even have the right- you’re the liar!”

Scott and Reyes both scoff and roll their eyes so hard they actually cringe because it HURT. Scott mimes pulling out a notepad. “Oh, Reyes, you lied wow what a surprise HOW MANY DOES THAT MAKE I DON’T EVEN KNOW BECAUSE EIGHTY PERCENT OF WHAT COMES OUT OF YOUR MOUTH IS A FALSEHOOD, BOLDFACED LIE, OR FABRICATION.”

Reyes nods and gestures frantically, almost spiraling because GRAVITY is not working. Scott’s upside down now. Or is he rightside up? “Mark it as the fifteenth today, love. I’ve been keeping track.”

Alec’s horrified. Reyes is still lying to Scott? And Scott puts up with it? One more reason to hate Reyes.

(What he doesn’t know is that Scott knows Reyes is a bit of a compulsive liar, and literally every lie post-High Noon is so stupid and unimportant Scott just throws Reyes a look at this point like “Cough it up” and Reyes gives in so fast with an “oh whoops did it again” Totally normal for them.)

So I’ve had some thoughts on how Cybertronian interfacing works in the random AUs that I have written that may or may not see the light of day. I’m in the camp of there being removable armor pieces and whatnot with an underlying protoform body. Here’s some things I’ve been deliberating on, including but not limited to spikes, valves, transfluid, coding, and heat cycles.

- Spikes are retractable. The base of the spike will puff up a bit when overload is near, so does a portion of the tip, though not nearly as much.

- The opening to the spike sheath is heart shaped because I’m trash. I’m actually thinking that spikes can be oriented two different ways (upside down heart or rightside up heart). Maybe it’s a regional thing. 

- There are two reservoirs that make transfluid, which is filled with mineral rich nanites that are essential to passing on coding to a potential sparkling. 

- Sparklings are generated through spark merge plus interface at the same time. Nanites from the ‘sire’ pass on coding and provide some of the framework for the sparkling but are not technically essential (the carrier drinks mineral rich energon for most of the material supply and the gestation chamber has its own construction nanites).

- You can put a cap on/in the opening to the spike sheath that will prevent the spike from extending. Short term this has little effect, but if a cap is on for long (like months and months) it can cause the nanite generators for the transfluid reservoirs to stop working, rerouting the materials once used to make them to other functions (like extra lubricants for the valve maybe). This doesn’t really render a bot sterile, but it does mean their coding can’t be passed on to a potential sparkling.

- Valves puff up when aroused.

- The anterior node is tear drop shaped because it looks good.

- There are actually two ceiling nodes, a primary and secondary. Primary is bigger and sits above the opening to the gestation chamber. Secondary is smaller and is below said opening. Hitting the secondary is a lot more difficult, but is pretty much a guaranteed overload.

I’m stuck with pen and paper at work, so I figured I’d pick up some cheapy supplies and try em out. Aside from a few hiccups here and there, I’m pretty pleased!

I used red and black ballpoint pens, brush marker inking pen, and colored pencils.

The snowman as foreshadowing in Hall of Egress

When Finn first stumbles into the room with the magic door, he finds an upside down snowman whose facial features themselves are not upside down.

Finn figures out that the only way to advance through the dungeon is to close his eyes and play out different mindscape scenarios. Several times, and ONLY in the mindscapes, Finn experiences a curious design quirk. He sprouts a strange line on his brow.

This isn’t a typical eyebrow furrow for Finn. In this episode itself, Finn furrows his brow outside of the mindscapes, as shown below, and this mysterious line only appears on Finn’s forehead while within the mindscape.

When you flip the snowman rightside up, you’ll find that its smile now sits in the same location where Finn’s eyebrow line appears

It’s only when a mindscape Finn - susceptible to this specific eyebrow quirk - locates and enters this room that he has solved the mystery and the real Finn is able to progress.

I’m pretty sure that the snowman serves to foreshadow to us, the viewers, that mindscape Finn will solve the riddle. But something else happens in the final seconds of the episode [emphasis mine]:

Jake’s forehead does the thing.
I’m not sure whether this happens to make us mull over the nature of reality or this is just a normal way that Jake furrows his brow, but hey. I’m gonna interpret it as a deliberate callback to The Thing Finn’s Brow Does When Nothing Is Real as a neat ‘What is real?’ tease.
