Since today’s clip was pretty difficult to process (at least for me); here are equal amounts girl squad and Evak + text posts (with some kollektivet thrown into the mix as well) to distract us from the heartbreak <3

what i love about jeongguk is that he really be in the back like having the time of his life?? by himself?? in most bts run episode bts could all be doing some shit together and he’d be in the back acting a fool all alone but having the time of his life?? like?? king of being a fan of his own company?? king of spending time with himself and enjoying it?? king??

I’ve been collecting the odd one liners and strange sentences our Dark Heresy II inquisitorial goon squad has said in our most recent mission.

“I like murder, but only when it’s appropriate! there’s a time and a place for bloody dismemberment!” - desperado
“I like breaking their knees too much to be honest” - arbite who seems to only rolls to hit legs in melee

“I didn’t have to give away my drugs, that’s useful” - our desperado ooc after convincing an enemy merc guard to let him take over guard duty. He then blew up the ammo dump being guarded, and burnt off his arm and is out of it for the rest of the mission.

“I /was/ flanking the tank, it just turned around” - on a leman russ pivoting and burning two guardsmen and a replacement character for said desperado. 

“come join me in my tunnel” - female arbite to the heavy weapons guy

“I am in the business of taking bodyparts. Somehow.” - weird psyker after collecting a guardsman’s arm the heavy’s arm, and an eldar wych’s leg.

reyes/sara, you know the council isn't happy about us

“You know the council isn’t happy about us, yes?”

From where she sat perched on the edge of the bed, Sara absently fastened the side of her shirt. “There isn’t a council,” she reminded him. Not for the first time.

On the opposite side of the bed, across rumpled bedding, Reyes folded his arms behind his head. Stark naked, he reminded Sara of those paintings Suvi kept prints of.  Judging from the way he languidly stretched, the man was clearly aware of this.

“Perhaps not on paper,” he retorted. “But here they are, making demands of me.”

She bit lightly on the inside of her cheek. Then shifted in her place to get a better read of him, her still-bare legs comfortably folding. His eyes followed the motion and she tried not to let her ears heat up.

“Tann only asked you to slow down on the murder.”

He tilted his head in that infuriating way of his, tone curious. “And you agree?”

“I’m generally not a fan of murder, no.”

“Yet you’re sleeping with the man who runs Kadara.”

“I’m sleeping with Reyes Vidal, not the Charlatan.” Sara fiddled with the edge of her shirt, suddenly uncomfortable. “Just like I hope you’re sleeping with Sara, not the Pathfinder.”

A moment of silence, and his gaze softened. With a slow (languid, again) movement, Reyes pushed himself into a seat. His hand moved, covering the exposed skin of her thigh, thumb brushing across it.

His voice was soft, “It hasn’t been just sleeping together for me, Sara. Not for a while.”

Her gaze darted up to meet his. “Is that why you suddenly care about the council’s approval?”

“Thought there wasn’t a council?”

“You know what I mean.”

The corner of his lip twitched. “There have been rumors. About us, together. None of them seem to support our having…support.”

She rested her hand over his. “Reyes?”

“Hm?” His gaze was growing distant.

She brought her other hand up to direct it back to the present moment. Slipperyo bastard, already working out logistics for their relationship without talking it over first.

“Don’t bring Director Tann into our relationship, okay?”

Reyes stared down at her. The twitch at the corner of his mouth morphed into a smile–small, and bittersweet. Like he had reached a conclusion and was dreading the wait for her to catch up. “Don’t worry. He’s not my type.”

“I mean it,” Sara said levelly. “You and me? We’re just you and me. They don’t matter.”

Reyes tilted his head, pressed his lips against her palm.

“Of course,” he said. And didn’t mean it. His brows drew together.

Sara sighed. “I know that look.”

“What look?”

“You’re planning something.”

“Always, my love.”

“Care to enlighten me?”

“You’ll find out later.”

Reyes…”

He winked.

Months later, Sara found a new message in her terminal, complete with several attached files. Frowning, she opened them and saw...financials. Deeds, bank accounts, investments. All with routing or trade serials based in Kadara Port.

All, also, in her name.

“What the…” Sara opened the message, already knowing who it was from.

Sara,

It’s not a ring, but give it some thought. Now seems like an appropriate time to demonstrate commitment.

Yours,
Reyes

P.S.
I promise all documents are legitimate–at least, Kadara legitimate.

Sara rubbed her temples. If the man had turned a proposal into a credit-laundering scheme, she was going to kill him.

She went to respond-

CC: Jarun Tann

-maybe she was just going to kill him anyway.

Korrasami Confirmed

Now that Korra and Asami’s final moment is out in the world, it seems like an appropriate time to express how I feel about it. I didn’t want to say anything right away so the audience could experience the finale for themselves.

The main themes of the Avatar universe have always revolved around equality, justice, acceptance, tolerance, and balancing differing worldviews. In subtle and maybe not so subtle ways, Avatar and Legend of Korra have dealt with difficult subjects such as genocide, child abuse, deaths of loved ones, and post traumatic stress. I took it as a complement when Joanna Robinson of Vanity Fair called the show subversive. There were times even I was surprised we were able to delve into the really tough stuff on a children’s TV network. While the episodes were never designed to “make a statement”, Bryan and I always strove to treat the more difficult subject matter with the respect and gravity it deserved.

And over the years we’ve heard from numerous fans, in person and online, how Avatar and Korra have influenced their lives for the better or helped them overcome a life struggle or setback. I am always humbled when people share their personal stories with us and I am grateful that my love for telling stories has been able to help people in some small way. So while Avatar and Korra were always meant to be entertaining and engaging tales, this universe and its characters also speak to the deeper humanity in all of us, regardless of age, gender, race, religion, culture, nationality, or sexual orientation.

Our intention with the last scene was to make it as clear as possible that yes, Korra and Asami have romantic feelings for each other. The moment where they enter the spirit portal symbolizes their evolution from being friends to being a couple. Many news outlets, bloggers, and fans picked up on this and didn’t find it ambiguous. For the most part, it seems like the point of the scene was understood and additional commentary wasn’t really needed from Bryan or me. But in case people were still questioning what happened in the last scene, I wanted to make a clear verbal statement to complement the show’s visual one. I get that not everyone will be happy with the way that the show ended. Rarely does a series finale of any show satisfy that show’s fans, so I’ve been pleasantly surprised with the positive articles and posts I’ve seen about Korra’s finale.

I’ve already read some heartwarming and incredible posts about how this moment means so much for the LGBT community. Once again, the incredible outpouring of support for the show humbles me. As Tenzin says, “Life is one big bumpy ride.” And if, by Korra and Asami being a couple, we are able to help smooth out that ride even a tiny bit for some people, I’m proud to do my part, however small it might be. Thanks for reading.

justalurkr replied to your post “Hi Sam, I have recently heard that the usage of paisley can be…”

I have to admit to having read the question and sighed. If wearing paisley is appropriation, son, it’s APPROPRIATED, possibly to the point at which Persians might not want it back, what all the sticky little euro-trash fingerprints on it. I am willing to be schooled, however. Is there a statute of limitations on appropriation? Like, colonialism has had your stuff This Long, so its world property now? Should that reset with every new consciousness raising moment?

I’m not entirely sure I understand, so do correct me if I’m wrong – it seems like you’re saying that Paisley is so common that nobody can “have it back” now? Because I did speak to the “no, it’s been too long, it belongs to the world now” issue in the original post. I don’t think time is a valid argument when we’re talking about the theft from and oppression of an entire culture, especially when the fix for the problem is relatively easy. 

We don’t really need to speculate about whether Persian culture “wants it back”, it’s laid out for us. Usually when someone says something is appropriation, as people are doing with Paisley quite clearly and with plenty of citations, that means they do want others to stop appropriating it. People don’t say something’s appropriated to make people feel bad or to teach some random history lesson, they say it to make people stop doing it. So I don’t know that we really need to speculate.

And whether or not the culture that Paisley came from explicitly and monolithically says they want it back, honestly, isn’t it kind of the right thing to do anyway? Paisley came from Persian culture, QED; surely the least we can do is, if we’re wearing it, ensure we’re supporting the culture it came from. It’s not like that’s super hard to do in the era of the internet. 

I mean…I went through my wardrobe and I have two paisley handkerchiefs. That damage is done. But now that I’m aware of it, I won’t buy paisley patterns on future clothing of any kind unless it’s made by Persian businesses or artists, and I’m kind of looking forward to the adventure of finding those. Seems like a small price to pay to be a slightly better person. 

Adventures at Miss Fisher Con (1)

I don’t plan on partaking in gambling while I am in town, but this is Vegas after all, so this post seems quite appropriate.

By the way, some of you may feel that this photo looks familiar, and you are correct. This is a variation of “My Friday Phrack Feels (14)” post on 12-Aug-2016. I created two drafts at that time and decided to go with the other one. It’s great that I get to post the runner-up here because I liked both of them and was a little disappointed that I didn’t get to use it earlier.

I’ve been catching up on Curse of Strahd with the waffle crew and enjoying every moment all while freaking out after every episode.

What have I gotten myself into now?

Okay, so I feel I need more of the Theoi on my dash.
Please like/reblog if you post about:
-Athena
-Aphrodite
-Persephone
-Hekate
-Hades
And
-Dionysus ( I have been thinking about him lately, and with my 21st birthday coming up it just seems like an appropriate time to become acquainted).
-hellenic calendar/ diety specific festivals and such

I’m look for general information, aesthetic blogs, or really any bloggers who blog in any way shape or form about any of the above list.

anonymous asked:

Would you consider the black samurai women that you reblogged cultural appropriation?

[in reference to this post]

uuuh, it depends? 

i don’t really know anything about the pics, so i can’t really say. 

looking at the link tho, it appears that she’s just modeling for someone who’s using authentic armor. it doesn’t seem like they’re taking the culture for themselves to me tho? just that they’re appreciating it

so. idk

(tbh i don’t really feel like i have a right to say one way or the other since i’m not part of the culture they’re showcasing..)

(There are a few remaining stragglers, but with nearly everybody accounted for, it seems like an appropriate time to write a quick retrospective.)

I’ve never run an event like this before, but the reason I wanted to was as a love letter to the fandom at large. This is the first year I’ve ever really posted art online, and suffice it to say I’m very glad to have ended up here with you.

I’ve never encountered a community with people so approachable and genuine and easy to befriend, and none of the antagonism that might be expected in a fandom of this size. In fact, I’ve seen practically nothing but wholehearted support and enthusiasm for everybody here - old and young alike, regardless of background or identity - and I’m really happy that we’ve managed to cultivate a space like this to just celebrate this series that we love. At heart, we’re all just giant nerds about One Piece, and there’s something truly special about that.

Whether for the spectacular fanwork, the depth of analysis, or simply the positive energy you’ve brought out in an otherwise trying year, everybody has been kind, welcoming, and talented beyond words. I’m so grateful to all of the wonderful people I’ve gotten to know, and I’m beyond excited to meet those of you I haven’t had the chance to yet. From the bottom of my heart, thank you for making my Tumblr experience amazing. <3

It’s been a rough year for many of us, but it’s made us resilient and ready to grow and prosper and do great things in a 2017 that’s brimming with potential. Please be kind and grateful and keep on working hard to become your best possible selves. We’re in it together, sailing through this life and chasing our dreams, so let’s keep supporting each other as best we can.

Best wishes for 2017,

anonymous asked:

what type of body types do you think bts likes? o.o (specifically pls ^^) ty

Well, from the ideal types that have been posted online and they have mentioned:

Jin: Body type wise, Jin prefers girls that are not skinny, ranging more to the chubbier or curvy side.

Suga: Yoongi seems like the type to brush off the whole body type issue, I think he rather concentrate whether they are compatible and won’t just bicker all the time.

Rap Monster: For Rap Mon, he’s said numerous times that if the girl is sexy, looks good in a white t-shirt, jeans and red converse high tops, that’s his girl. Additionally, he does think that his ideal girl must be appropriately tall

J-Hope: For Hoseok, his girl doesn’t need to be in the extremely skinny side but not in the really chubby side either. I think he’d like a girl that is between slim and curvy, someone who can keep up with his moves, you feel me? But I don’t think he’d be that shallow to reject a girl because of her body type.

Jimin: Now, we all know that Jimin is one of the shortest members in BTS, so obviously he’d prefer a girl that is shorter than him, probably so he can cover her with his body (awww).

V: Taehyung looks for a lot of things in a girl, mostly good things that many girls can fit. I think Taehyung wouldn’t look too much into the body type of the girl, as long as she cares about him and cares about their parents, she is Tae’s ideal girl.

Jungkook: Golden maknae may be a little picky. He would probably want a girl around his height, but slightly shorter than him. Body type wise, probably a girl that can keep up with his routines and such. She’s gotta have talent, said by himself.

Over all, the boys have never mentioned weights or anything. They are pretty humble when it comes to picking an ideal type, but keep in mind that the perfect ideal type will never exist and that probably the girl they date won’t meet everything they want, so don’t worry. I’m pretty sure they aren’t that shallow to reject a girl because she has an odd body type. Hope this is what you wanted!

Why I'm OK with the romance in Fire and Hemlock

This has been languishing, unfinished, in my drafts for months. Now seemed an appropriate time to finish and post it.


Not every one is comfortable with the romance in Fire and Hemlock, and with good reason.

But, all things considered, I like it. So I thought I’d talk about why…

I’ve written before about how I’m interested in seeing problematic power dynamics explored in fictional romances (so long as I am ultimately convinced that the couple see - and treat - each other as equals). I’m not sure if Fire and Hemlock quite fits that category, if only because for so much of the story there isn’t a romance.

But the novel does explore a relationship that is problematic. Moreover, it acknowledges the problems, and this means the characters have to deal with them.  

Book spoilers. Also, this is long… Consider yourself warned.

Undertale music used: “It’s showtime!” and “Quiet Water”


Not much to say about this one. Added a little Undertale music into this one where seemed appropriate. Chapter three is almost wrapped up, only eight more parts left! Also, hurray! It seems like Soundcloud and Tumblr have finally made up and I can post my proper link. I’ll miss being able to see how many plays this gets but I’m glad I don’t have to worry about the file size.

slugette replied to your post: Heyyy, a gamer dudebro found my DA comic and…

I really don’t get people who do this.. Clearly an attention seeking douche. Minimal answer or even none seems appropriate. These people are not worth your valuable time.

Yeah, that’s what I settled on, no answer, and if he keeps pushing, I’ll just block him.

But right? like… it’s not like I made him read it, and he left 3 comments on the page like wow dude, what a waste of time, I still love the game, you only made me love it harder to spite you, dude ^_^;;
