Sword Oratoria

So awhile back I picked up the first volume of the Danmachi spinoff LN in a buy two get one free sale thinking that it was a manga. I was initially disappointed because I didn’t really want a LN at the time, but since I bought it I figured I might as well go ahead and read it. 

I have to say, I was pleasantly surprised. It’s certainly not the pinnacle of fantasy writing, but I was engaged in the story and wanted to know what was going to happen next. I appreciate that in the spinoff it focuses on Aiz and her familia doing badass things in the dungeon rather than Bell being a newb and getting stronger. Aiz is already basically a god among men, and it lets the story go somewhere different than the original. 

While the writing is for the most part fairly simple (though I suspect this is partly because of it being translated and also that LNs are typically aimed at a younger audience and tend to not use a lot of advanced Kanji, which probably translates to the somewhat punctual and simple sentences that LN translations seem to have) the author has a real knack for describing large scale tactical battles. Sure Aiz is pretty OP and well wreck things, but in the really lower levels of the dungeon if they don’t work together and have a strong battle plan they’re just gonna die. 

I also appreciate that in the LN the world is fleshed out a lot more. World building is one of my favorite things in a show or book, and the Danmachi anime didn’t go into too much depth about the various things. The LN goes into much much more depth about how all the systems work, the various familia, cool little things about the world and so on. Also the dungeon is just fucking cool. Each floor can be completely unique, with almost no restrictions placed on what it has to look like or be which leaves the author with incredible freedom to dream up the wildest floors they possibly want. 

I wasn’t really expecting to enjoy this book very much, but it’s a solid fun read. Something like a 6-7/10 if I’m going to give it numbers. If you liked Danmachi at all, or sort of liked it but wanted a different view of the world this is a nice book to pick up. Only the first volume has been officially translated, but they seem to be coming out with new official translations every couple months. I’m sure there are fan translations floating around too, but I haven’t looked for them. 

So ya, fun book. There is an anime adaption scheduled sometime this year too. I think next season, but maybe the one after. That should be fun.

Not even gonna mention the complete lack of Happy Birthday tweets/posts from both the Tomlinsons and OT3. Liam has supposedly a child on its way, Harry adores babies and also Niall. Louis is one of the most important people in their lives and yet they seem uncapable to achnowledge his first child birthday? (just like they did last year the day of the "birth")


Forgetting what Louis was doing in the video for a moment, the fact that B is tousling her hair forward to preen it while she is presenting her child’s first birthday cake says how fake it is to me. Surely as a mother your focus would be on your child not how good your hair looks.


Louis seems like the type of person who wouldn’t be able to even act mad at a baby imo so I don’t see why people think that him acting fond over a child automatically makes it his. If he cared about the kid he wouldn’t be at a concert rn. Smiling at a cute not to mention completely innocent child doesn’t mean anything from my standpoint. But I guess everyone’s entitled to their own opinion. Sorry if this is repeating something that’s already been said and I hope you’re having a great day :) x


I smile at kids I have no attachment with, because they’re kids…. and they’re cute… and I love kids. It doesn’t mean I mothered all of them. Plus, this is even more relevant, because he was so cold for a year and then he smiled for the first time yesterday….. I mean LOL


Louis was polite and soft with F and this is normal. He loves babys, he dreams about own babys. Why he couldn’t smiling? F is cute. Louis don’t hate him. Louis not a father of this kid but it doesn’t mean what he is harassing F. He was careful and kind, why not? One smile on one year? Thing like this don’t doing people dads. Sperm doing. Sex. DNA. . Louis hasn’t sex with B. and he hasn’t generel DNA with F. Case is closed.

If MLP had those I might consider watching it.

Disabled People Are Allowed To Party in Public

Last night, I was at a club celebrating my friends’ engagement. Disregarding the amount of times a guy looked my way but immediately turned when seeing my cane, something happened that threw a bucket of cold water on my night.

While working my way through the crowd (something very difficult with a cane), a girl dancing kicked my cane hard enough that it almost flew out of my hands (thank goodness for wrist straps). She stopped, turned towards me in anger. She looked me up and down, looked at my cane, then with a look of disgust she shouted “WHY ARE YOU EVEN HERE?”

I was so shocked and hurt that I just kept walking, but I wish I had stopped. I’m allowed to go out and celebrate. I’m allowed to party in public. My existence shouldn’t have to be hidden for able bodied people’s ability to party. If you had kicked another person’s leg while dancing, you would apologize. Kicking my cane should have the same response, not a verbal attack filled with disdain.

I’m allowed to be happy. I’m allowed to be in the same spaces as you. My disability does not exclude me from society. I’m not required to stay out of sight, out of your path. I’m a human, just as much as you.

Honestly, when it comes to things like not meeting others' standards, Amethyst is a good example to look at. By her creators' standards she's small, broken, and useless. She let that consume her, overshadowing the beauty and talent that she already had. She was the perfect "her" that she ever needed to be. She didn't need to be what others wanted her to be or to act how they ordered her, she just needed to naturally be the Amethyst we all love. And when she accepted herself as is, she shined.

This made me tear up and I am no joking this ask is so beautiful I love you so much

some bad signs from the women’s march

so first of all, the protest was amazing and exhilarating. but i have some serious qualms with signs that marchers were holding. sorry for not taking pictures! trust that these are real signs.

1. “make america think again” - this is just obnoxious. people not voting for your candidate doesn’t make them stupid. additionally, it’s contradictory if you’re also going to chant “we are the popular vote.” so which is it? america is dumb, or the majority voted for the “smart” candidate?

2. saw a poster with melania and she had a dick - transphobic tbh

- also, don’t compare melania to michele and insinuate that the former is a classless slut and the latter is a saint. actual misogyny at a women’s march is not a good look. 

3. saw one that started out good, listing logos of all the groups that endorsed trump: exxon mobil, the kkk, white nationalists, etc…but then they also included the sickle and hammer - liberals are just as guilty as fascists, it seems, of destroying history. (also i sign a sign that spelled it “facism”) 

4. “the green party is the party we’ve been waiting for” - lol no they’re not

5. saw a big red sign that said “socialism or barbarism” - oh wait nvm that one rules 

6. “i’m still with her” - she didn’t march, so she’s not with you

7. anything hamilton or founding fathers related - they owned slaves and didn’t think women should vote

my boss is always telling me how perfect her son would be for me and she promises he’s coming to the next holiday party and don’t worry he’s heard all about me too and ALSO there’s this dude i slept with once a couple of months ago and sometimes he still sends me dick pics when i ask him to at 3 in the morning cause seriously dude’s got a good dick AU for cassian x jyn

Jyn scrolled through her text messages and smiled at the one she had received last night. She knew it was inappropriate to look at dick pics at work, but damn if he didn’t have a good one.

She heard a knock on her office door and quickly turned her phone so that the screen was facing the desk. She turned around in her chair and smiled. “Hi, Baze.”

“Chirrut has sent me to tell you that our son is coming to the holiday party,” Baze said in a world-weary voice. “I know you don’t want to, but just talk to him for five minutes so that Chirrut will stop trying to set you up.”

“Got it.” It was true that Chirrut had been talking up his and Baze’s adopted son for weeks now–somehow he’d gotten it into his head that Jyn would like the guy. Jyn was determined not to like him solely because Chirrut was forcing him on her (and also because she couldn’t stop thinking of Cassian and the night they’d spent doing…well, a lot of things), but at least Baze had her back.

When she logged off her computer and headed out to the work party, she was already bracing herself. It was not enough, however, because when Baze sullenly introduced his son, Jyn nearly fell over. “Um, hi,” she said, not sure if she should reveal that she had, in fact, met their son before.

Cassian smiled at her. “Hi.”

“Have fun,  you two!” Chirrut said, immediately walking away. Baze gave them a resigned look before following his husband.

“Okay, so, what the fuck?” Jyn hissed.

“You banged  your boss’s son,” Cassian said with an impish grin.

“My boss’s son has been sending me dick pics,” she countered.

“You asked him to.”

He had her there.

“Do you, uh, want to see my office?” she asked lamely.

But Cassian nodded, and taking her hand, followed her away from the party.

“I told you it would work,” Chirrut said.

Baze smiled. “Your matchmaking skills are practically occult.”

anubias has szpd which pretty much controls her entire personality, so she’s apathetic to whatever happens to her. she doesn’t fear death at all. some people mistake this for bravery but she just Doesn’t Care. think of lapis in “hit the diamond” except 24/7.

while she doesn’t want to admit it, she does develop a soft spot for most of the other characters. loves affection.

she always looks good. she loves wearing jewelry and nice clothes and everyone always compliments her. she blushes very easily and it’s adorable 10/10 although i still need to develop her more

The writer carefully sat in her chair as she browsed the web for inspiration, her elegant fingers drumming against the keyboard. Her long hair cascaded in waves down her back. Her beautiful milk chocolate eyes shining with creativity as she looked on. Her lips curving upwards, forming a smile as she read the appreciation of so many people on her latest post. She had a carefree and joyful air about her, as if just being near her could brighten a persons day. (My attempt at a description)

Holy goodness that is just wonderful! I can’t stop reading it???

I mentioned this sketch… So yeah not too good but I tried (and believe me I’ll make it right once). Trying to get over my no fanart posting rule. And I am sick as hell and slowly dying (nothing serious just caught a cold) it looks like no school next week but eh I’m bored and feeling shitty. Spent the whole day playing SSO and AO in bed. Too bad I can’t use my drawing tablet in bed. Not like I was really in the mood for anything. Might post last weeks weird selfie because idk I wanted to do a face reveal earlier???

I feel like venting this to you bc i think you'll be sympathetic/understanding. But Im a heterosexual male, and I love Princess Peach.

Seriouslyyy? I hate people so much! Most gamers really are shit heads aren’t they..
If someone is gonna judge u for this it shows what kinda sad human being they really are.. don’t let it get to you and keep being a proud Peachy fan!

Crush

I haven’t wrote in a long time. This somehow wrote itself. 


It was always harder for Joe to find somehow who he really liked. Not that there aren’t pretty girls out there. There are. And Joe knew plenty of them. It’s just that whenever he talked to a girl he would panic and became anxious about himself. Not that he thought that he wasn’t good enough or that he wasn’t handsome enough. He simply thought that he would be a bit too much for girls. That’s why he rarely went on dates and rarely dated. 

So when he started liking Y/N it was hard for him. She was part of the group. Not like they saw each other every day but his group saw her at least once a week. 
At first it was just the way she looked, and she was gorgeous. Everyone knew that. But when he got to know her he started liking her laugh, the way she talked and how stubborn she was. He liked how she doesn’t let anyone get to her and that made her well her. He like how she bossed them around when they need that. He liked how her smell stayed on his shirt whenever she hugged him.
But of course he couldn’t tell her that. 
What if he made things awkward. 
Or what if she decided that he’s just too weird for her. 
He couldn’t tell her so he told everyone else. 

The first person who he told was Caspar. And somehow he knew. For weeks he tried to assure him that she likes him too. He told him that he was amazing and that there is nothing not to like. But Joe didn’t believe him. Not that he thought Caspar would ever lie to him but simply he didn’t want to believe him. It was easier. 
The next person who found out was Josh. It slipped out of Joe’s mouth when she saw her picture on Instagram. He said something down the lines how beautiful she looked even though she was just in the hoodie. And that’s when Josh knew. He told him that he could ask her what she thought of him but Joe didn’t want to hear about it. He claimed that it was just a crush and that it would go away. 

But since it didn’t go away Josh asked Jack and Conor on their opinions about Y/N liking Joe. And Jack being Jack at first he laughed and said that there’s no way she would go out with him but when he realized that his mate had real feelings for one of his friends he reassured him that she liked him. He said that she would be crazy if she didn’t like him, to which Joe just laughed. Conor suggested that they write her a song in which he express his love to her, which made everyone laugh. Joe just looked at him and continued staring at his phone. He reassured they that this was just a crush and that it will go away. 

Two months passed and it sill wouldn’t go away. The more time she spent with the crew the more he liked her. Tonight they were planning on going out with her and her friends. When Joe saw her at the club he knew that he had to tell her soon. She was standing there in her dress surrounded with models and for him she was still the most beautiful girl in the room. Throughout the whole night he was quiet, standing at their boot and drinking. Which was odd for Joe he was usually the one who goofed around and sang to every song. 
“Hey there!” Said Y/N sitting next to him.
“Hi.” Joe smiled at her and returned his look to the glass in front of him. 
“So what’s up with you?” 
“What?” He tried to hear her but he couldn’t. The music was too loud. Y/N took her phone and typed something in it. She handed Joe her phone and it read ‘wanna go out and talk, it’s too loud here?’ He just nodded. 
They walked outside the club. It was nice, fresh air was a great thing after the crowded club.
“How is this city so beautiful at night?” She asked breaking the silence. 
“It sure is beautiful.”

“So what’s up with you?” She finally asked.
“What do you mean?” 
“You’ve been acting really strange tonight, you weren’t dancing and laughing with us. You haven’t even snapchated at all.” This made him smile. Snapchat was their thing. They literary snapchated everything they did to each other. 
“I’m just not in the mood, I guess.”
“I figured. So what’s wrong? You know you can talk to me, I’m a great listener.” 
She said and Joe smiled at her. He remember how she listened to him rant about Zoe for hours, simply because he couldn’t decide what to get her for her birthday. And Y/N even helped him pick the present. 
“I know love.” He sight. “You know how sometimes I’m just too much?” He asked and took a seat on the bench he saw next to them.
“What do you mean?” She asked confusingly. 
“Well I’m loud and I goof all the time, I’m stubborn and I prank people A LOT, I’m a lot to handle.” He looked a her. “Go on, I’m listening.” Was all she said. 
“Well you see, that’s the main reason I don’t date much I don’t show the real me because I’m afraid that girls will get scared and ran away. So there’s this girl I like and I see her often. She know that I’m goofball but somehow she’s one too. But I’m scared that she doesn’t look at me that way. Makes sense?” 
“Yeah it does. First of all you’re so not too much to handle. Maybe for some girls but most, you’re not. Caspar is, he’s a really special kid. But you? Oh you are something different.” She said and smiled. “How come?” He said and looked at her eyes. “See I have never saw you treat any girl in a bad way. You’re always a gentleman. You’re a goofball but so am I and I manage to find a guy once in a while, they’re jerks but I manage to find them. It’s a talent I’m telling you.” This made Joe laugh. “You have a serious and mature side too. You take care about elderly all the time, you help your sister whenever she needs it, even if you’re back here and she’s in Brighton. You can handle a real conversation even though you act like you don’t.” She smiled at him and he thanked her.

“And that girl that you like is a lucky one. She get’s an intelligent gentleman and a funny guy all in once. Trust me Joe. You’re all any girl is looking for.” Hearing her say those words gave Joe courage he was looking for. He finally did what he was wanting for a long time. He kissed her. The kiss surprised her but Y/N didn’t wait a moment longer and to kissed him back. It was a short but amazing kiss. 
“I was hoping I was the girl you were talking about.” Was all she said.

Lily going on a mission for the order and seeing Severus again after all those years but he fights for the other side and she can't , she mustn't look at him as Sev anymore. But in her eyes he'll always be the little 11 years old Sev who introduced her to magic and were her best friend. And now I made myself sad

well lucky Death Eaters wear masks amirite?

no I’m sorry I don’t want to be mean, I just can’t help it with Snily, I’m like bloody James Potter.

The thing is a person like Lily would have been phased for a moment or so but then would realise they are in danger and let go of her good memories of the Death Eater standing in front of her instantly. She would probably feel the pain when she’s back in the headquarters and she wouldn’t show it but James would now.
