24; badboy!namjoon

along the lines (24)
p: kissing at the laugh lines

there are days (plentiful) of when namjoon doesn’t play by the rules.

if you had to list the few on the top floating in your head… that one time he bend around the rules and misinformed a new kid who he apparently thought was flirting with you when all he did was ask where the main office was. or during a game of beer pong he somehow manages to debate his way through winning when it’s just a game, namjoon let it go. you have more where that came from but when namjoon’s looking at you with a frown on his face because you’re poking fun of those moments you’ve thought, being put out into words where only he can hear, he pokes at your waist to get you to stop.

but there are ones where even when you know he’s breaking the rules, reshaping it to suit his needs, you’ll admit that it had some perks. despite the fact he spices up life in school, he was a bright student with a smart brain. he found loopholes to the littlest of nook and crannies that not even a microscope could zoom into that and that pretty much scored your free time with him now.

he smiles at the twist of topic and scoots closer to kiss your cheek just because.

“glad to know you appreciate me finding ways to spend more time with you,”

“well,” you brush your fingers through his purple locks, resting your folded leg over his thigh and he automatically puts his palm over your clothed skin, “it’s nice if we didn’t have to lie about it,”

“hey, technically i didn’t lie. i simply worded it differently than what normal people would’ve,”

“what a way to put things to get out of trouble, hm?”

“it seems like i’m digging my own grave with anything i say at this point,”

“is the one and only kim namjoon getting scared?”

“of getting into a fight with his girlfriend? you could say that,”

“if we’re talking physical i’m no match for you,” you chuckle, about to add on because with his rather tall physique and exceptional strength beyond the average human because he manages his time to work out, he darts forward and you pause when he kisses you not on the lips but not on the cheek either. it was somewhat… in between where your smile curves your cheek inwards to meet with the stretch of your lips.

“namjoon what was-”confusion is ebbing away when he continues to do it, kissing the same spot over and over until it’s redundant and it pushes you into a pit of laughter when he manages to hold you down with a hand pillowing the back of your head as you feel the metal of the rooftop below you. his lips never stop, continuously kissing the same spot that maintains the smile on your face and it’s not long until you succeed to get ahold of his face to stop him.

“any more and i’m going to end up fainting with all the laughing,”

“i could give you cpr then,” he wiggles his brows and you smack his shoulder before pulling him down to lay next to you.

“good to know you could save me when the time comes,”

“what about you?” he hooks his arm on your waist, turning his head to you.

“what about me?” you turn your cheek.

“could you save me when i need you to?”

“i could call 911,”

“…or i could teach you cpr,”

“…right here? now?”

“consider this as a make up for you missing a part of your class.”

CANCER - In a Nutshell

Cancer is a mysterious sign, filled with contradictions. They want security and comfort yet seek new adventure. They are very helpful to others yet sometimes can be cranky and indifferent. Cancer has a driving, forceful personality that can be easily hidden beneath a calm, and cool exterior.

The crab is Cancer’s ruling animal and it suits them well, they can come out of their shell and fight but they can also hide in their shell of skitter away back into the depths of the ocean. They are very unpredictable. With cancer, there is always something more that meets the eye, for they are always partially hidden behind the shell. They are a have a deep psyche and intuitive mind that is hidden from the world. Cancer is deeply sensitive and easily hurt, this might be why they have their defence shell in place, to avoids being hurt by others.

They are nurturers so they surround themselves with people, whom after a while can offend or hurt a cancer without even knowing they did so, therefore Cancer’s protective shell keeps them safe from hurt. They are complex, fragile, unpredictable and temperamental and need constant support and encouragement, more than any other astrology signs,

Cancer needs to be needed. When cancer gets the support it needs, it has a tremendous amount to offer in return. When cancer gets offended, they tend to sulk instead of confronting the persons face to face. This needlessly prolongs the pain and suffering.

Cancer is very possessive, not just with material possessions but with people as well. Cancer will always want to stay in touch with old friends and anyone who has ever been close to them, because it is easier to maintain a friendship then attempt to learn to trust a new person. It is easier this way for them emotionally. If you befriend a Cancer, you will stay friends for a long time.

Cancer makes the perfect mother, this is the sign that represents motherhood. They have unconditional love and caring more so than any other astrology sign. Cancer are very intuitive. Most of the psychics of the world are Cancer astrology signs. They have an excellent memory and are very observant and can read people very well. They can usually tell of other people’s intentions are good or not. Never dupe a Cancer, they can see your motives.

Cancer has a lot of emotional issues to deal with but once they overcome this large hump of shyness and insecurity, there is practically nothing they can’t do. With their strong intuition, sensitivity, powers of observation and intelligence, they will have great success in anything they undertake.

It’s kind of an unspoken rule for us mermaids to not reveal outselves to humans, but I’ve been watching you work as a life guard on my beach and I think it’s about time I try this “drowning” thing you humans do that always brings you into the water

I cannot resist mermaids!

How Big, How Blue

There was something odd about the human.

He’d managed to startle her the first time she’d seen him. In her habitat, a place where he should be the one lacking in grace. It had been very late, the skies dark and the moon, a few days shy of full, the best illumination. She’d ventured close to the surface knowing that the humans would have long since retreated from the ocean.

They had such trouble with it even during the day when the sun shone and warmed the water, forever shrieking and splashing and hopping out to apply that odd white paste only to hop in again and go through the same routine. Once night hit and temperatures cooled they preferred to stay on the shore, light their fires and cook their food on sticks while huddling close together under piles and piles of fabric.

At a young age Caroline had taken a liking to their music. She took every opportunity she could find to listen to it, often found herself humming along and swaying, taking care to keep herself obscured either by drifting just below the surface or hiding below the docks.

The evening she’d first encountered the human who’d piqued her interest she’d been doing just that, floating on her back to keep her bright hair obscured. There were only a few people out that night, she could see faint white clouds every time she exhaled. Her eyes had been closed so she’d felt the disturbance in the water before she’d seen it and had immediately submerged herself with an ungainly splash, slipping deep into the water until he hands were brushing the sandy ocean bottom.

Wide-eyed she’d watched as a human passed over her, his long limbs cutting through the water in powerful strokes.

I’m generally not a fan of the most recent spate of superhero movies (which tend to be merely middling action movies skinned with comic book cosmetics), but I was surprised that I enjoyed Logan – not just as a movie about Wolverine, but an actual movie. Just as a film, it was impressive in that it gave a shit about character, dialogue, and pacing, was willing to wait for story elements to unfold at a natural pace, wasn’t shoving easter eggs and in-jokes down our throats, and embraced ambiguity. 

I remember how the franchise began with a gag about the perceived silliness of the source material – “yellow spandex” and all that – and yet Logan introduces a nod to the source material as an actual component of the plot, to introduce doubt and frustration to the characters instead of a smarmy wink. It used it to ask a question about the aspirational quality of superhero comics, and in the end that contrived fiction was more powerful than the brutality and endless fighting in which these films trade.

Its use of violence was its major strength, tho. Violence, in the world of Logan, isn’t empowering, redemptive or cathartic – frequently, it’s not even necessary or useful. Instead, it’s dehumanizing and shameful, and it weakens the characters’ resolve and ability to relate to each other. Laura, in particular, ran the risk of becoming another post-Buffy asskicker, but was instead a victim of her own violence as much as her targets.

Really, there’s so much more; that it wasn’t violence that redeemed Wolverine but that he killed his worst self (which I thought was a weakness in the film, writing the metaphor that blatantly) and allowed his faltering self to die, so as to save what is effectively his younger self and prevent her from going down his dangerous, pointless, suffering road. Jackman had the room to actually act for the first time in all of these films, and he and Stewart were a remarkable pair. And placing the movie seven years ahead let them do something that so few of these movies think to do – to create a familiar world with slightly unfamiliar rules, which suit the necessary excesses of the genre. “Robocop Rules,” as it were. 

Really a beautiful film. The Paris, Texas of X-Men movies. Paris, TeXas.

More an RPG question, but: Do you think a halfling (36" high; 35 lbs) could ride a spotted hyena (28-36" high at shoulder; 150 lbs, per Wikipedia)? I'm assuming she could train it via magic, but I'm not sure its size and physical structure are suitable...

(I’m assuming a lot of D&D 3.5 edition rules because those are the one’s I’m most familiar with)

A halfling could certainly get a saddle made to sit on a hyena, but a standard hyena is probably approaching its carrying capacity and the limit of its strength to carry a halfling around for any length of time, and that’s not accounting for gear and armor.

You could potentially modify the hyena, adding a couple of hit dice to increase it’s strength score (and possibly height) so that it can carry more for longer. It’s only a small tweak that would be needed in the rules. Domesticated hyenas bred for increased carrying capacity is an interesting possibility.

Dungeons & Dragons often pairs halflings with riding dog’s, so I don’t see why you couldn’t modify those rules a little to suit your idea. It is fantasy after all.

anonymous asked:

what do you think of acotar ladies (Archeron sisters, Mor, Vivian, Amren) as a rulers/queens? Not to compare them, but... who is more suited to rule, who is not, and what kind of queens they would become? I just have this feeling that for example Feyre has to really learn a lot to be a High Lady.

Hmmm…that’s an interesting question, for sure!

So starting from the end, actually, I definitely agree that Feyre still has a lot to learn. But it’s completely normal, you know? Feyre is a 19-year old (or now  20? I don’t know - still, not much difference) among Fae who are mostly centuries old. More than that, despite her having to grow up really quick when she was young, up to the moment of meeting Tamlin, she has led a life very different to the one she’s now leading in Prythian. OF COURSE she has a lot to learn.

That was made very clear - at least to me - in acowar. Her revenge scheme in the Spring Court - carried out with no thought about the consequences it would have on the regular folk (unlike the way she seemed to care about them in acotar/acomaf - so that might be also her being ooc). But also her behaviour towards Mor - when she lied about staying close when in fact she went on her own to catch the Suriel…And the worst of all - her death pact with Rhys (although I’m wondering if I should even mention it, it was so freaking ooc) - made with no deeper consideration, no regard for the impact it would have on the Night Court, their family, friends and their subjects. If one of them died, it would leave the Night Court doubly weakened, probably in chaos over who should take over the reigns.

But like I said - all of this is more caused by how Feyre was written in acowar - with disregard to her previous characterization and development, treated more as a “camera” that offers a glimpse at action unraveling before her.

As for the rest of the ladies…I think all of them are suited to rule, in a way? Personally, I think Mor would make an exquisite queen - I WOULD love to see her in a position of power, to be honest, and not just over the Court of Nightmares. She’s both tough and kind, intelligent, protective, compassionate and most of all - she connects with people. She cares about them. The list goes on and on, but all of these traits make me think she would be a great queen - both powerful and kind.

With Amren, who I guess would have the power to pretty much break every single one of the High Lords in half with a snap of her finger, the matter is a bit more tricky. Personally, I don’t think she would want to rule? I think that while she’s clearly and undoubtedly competent to rule - not only as Rhysand’s second-in-command but rule on her own - I’m not sure that’s something she would enjoy? My guess is that she likes working…in the shadows, so to speak. Like, imagine her actually having to deal with all these people/Fae, she would eat them all.

And last but not least, Nesta and Elain…so with Nesta, I think she would excel at some aspects of ruling, while she would need to work on others…Firstly, as we’ve seen in the series so far, she definitely cares. She cares about people in her own way, she wants - desperately - she wants humans protected against the threat from Fae and Hybern (even though she’s not that fond of people in general - she sees them as weaker than Fae, she sees the injustice of all that and she wants them protected). She’s also cunning and intelligent and I believe she would make an excellent strategist. What she’s not good at are…interpersonal interactions. Nesta is straightforward and blunt, which I personally adore, but let’s be real, it doesn’t make her a good diplomat.

But you know what? She doesn’t need to be. She has other strengths and those are entirely enough. And it would actually be awesome, methinks, if Nesta and Elain co-ruled, because guess what? Elain is amazing at interacting with people…at getting what she needs from people…at resolving conflicts…she’s so much more than just a “gentle flower-grower”!

Alright, so this got long and I just saw you’ve asked about Viviane too but tbh, we didn’t get that much of her so idk? It’s said that she oversaw the Winter Court while Kallias was UtM but I don’t remember if any specifics have been mentioned.

Overall, all these ladies have a potential to kick ass as rulers - to different extents and in different ways - and I SO WISH WE COULD’VE SEEN ANY OF THAT, WHY ARE ALL THE RULERS OF PRYTHIAN MEN, I JUST DON’T UNDERSTAND.

HOLYYYYY SHIT

YONA DEFINITELY HAS THE POWER OF THE DRAGONS CUZ SHE JUST FUCKIN’ ROASTED SOO-WON’S ASS.

honestly I KEEP SAYING THIS and this is what I’ve been getting at the whole time. Soo-Won’s warmongering isn’t, like. a good thing like every stan of his I’ve met makes it out to be. “Soo-Won’s methods are flawless and he should definitely be king” was never what this manga is trying to say. Is he smart? Is he competent? Does he do good things to his kingdom? Yeah. But an overbearing offense is just as problematic as a weak defense for a country. I’m not sure, when we get to the end of the manga, we’ll even be saying that Soo-Won is definitely a better ruler than Yona’s dad. I think his worldview is easily as flawed as Il’s was, possibly moreso.

For him to say, right here, that an act of what is clearly over-the-top cruelty (executing captured opponents and treating their bodies disgracefully for the sake of intimidation) righteous is fucked up, full stop. If he’d said something like “regrettable but necessary” maybe that’d at least be an argument of logic and strategy vs ethics, but straight up murdering your subdued and imprisoned opponents for the sake of a threat is never “righteous”. There’s nothing okay morally about that.Even if you’re somehow in a situation where that is the only move, it should be a source of shame and regret and not excused with “whatever war’s like that”.

Yona is very right to call him out on this and I think we’re starting to see some big cracks in Soo-Won’s armor here. 

Like I’ve been saying, Yona is a middle ground between Soo-Won and Il’s extreme views, and I honestly think she’s the one better suited to rule, not because of destiny or her being the main character, but because she’s repeatedly demonstrated she’s good at considering both sides of an issue- she’s not a doormat, she’ll kill people who need to be killed swiftly and without regret, but she’s also not one to justify needless cruelty or aggression. 

When to Capitalize

Traditional English convention has one rule: if it’s unique, capitalize it.

For example, the following would be capitalized:

  • a person’s name, including the title (Duke of York)
  • a specific place/location (the Misty Mountains)
  • a specific people group (the Drow)
  • a unique object or group of objects (the Boxes of Orden)
  • a brand-name object (Corvette)
  • a person that is sacred or held in high regard (Her Majesty)

The following would (traditionally) not:

  • a person’s rank when not referenced as part of their title (the duke)
  • a general location (the mountains)
  • a combination of people groups that share a similar trait (humans)
  • an object that is not brand-specific (spark plug)
  • a common object (the cloak)

Princess Isabella would be better suited to rule Verona than her brother. Though he is trying his best to rule, Escalus keeps treating her like a child only because she is a woman. She is capable of making great decisions.

Verona is fucked. 

Rosaline and Benvolio are still acting like they’re both in for sabotaging their upcoming marriage, as if all of this is not gonna make them fall for one another. Lol, cute.. And Livia and Paris are cute.

Well guess what bucko. Tumblr is a 13+ site. That means minors are going to be here. You can’t shift around tumblr’s rules just to suit your selfish needs. I asked nicely, but minors are going to be on tumblr regardless. IT IS NOT A PORN SITE.
