so it's probably one of them

Phone call with my parents just now:

Mom: So Dad’s been looking at real estate in Pittsburgh, he wants to help you buy and fix up a house! What do you think about that?

[insert discussion about Responsible Adult Things like owning real estate]

Mom: So what’s going on with you?

Me: I…just spent a large amount of money on plane tickets to visit Finland and Germany this summer. *sweats*

just a friendly FYI for pokemon go players - I know Gen 4 is a looong ways off lol, but here’s a list of the Gen 1 and 2 candies you’ll probably want to be stocking up on in preparation for Gen 4.

it includes [common] ones you might be ignoring, like Murkrow, Swinub, Aipom, Misdreaveus, Sneasel, Gilgar, and more, so it might be worth keeping an eye out for [low CP] ones you can grind into candies for the future.

scribblesthecheetahwolf  asked:

What things about your partner drew you to them? Like do they have any qualities or traits that make you love them even more than you already do?

It’s all more on the psychological side.

Probably one of his biggest qualities for my current partner is how he got to know me and learned how to deal with me for who I am, for example, noticing and giving me the space I need when I’m moody its something I never thought someone would do for me. 

The way he surprises me with his kind words… he’s an absolute dork and I love him so much.

ok but why is no one talking about alex and haley’s relationship in stardew valley??? its so good. like…..what a brotp??? u would think theyd be a couple w messy drama too but nah theyre just a supportive brotp ( from the looks of it ) that hang around each other a lot?? haley literally comes to stand near alex’s ice cream stand in the summer to talk and hang with him and thats so cute tbh. they probably grew up together too and both think theyre better than everyone else but lowkey care about each other a lot and i love them

!!! What’s this? lol jk it’s just a small teaser I did recently (oh nooo flashback train tracks!). I’ve been getting messages about the Zen Feels Train again despite it being in the FAQ already askjdhsakd does no one read FAQs anymore ;;-;;

So anyway, I was thinking of updating on April and I was thinking of updating per page whenever I finish one && upload it somewhere like tapastic (?) or something similar so I don’t clutter up your dashes. I will still upload sets on tumblr like before but for those who want to view pages as they are completed, the off-tumblr option (tapastic,webtoon,etc idk yet) is always there (…?) what sites would you guys suggest?

Some initial outfit/armor concepts for my fantasy Haikyuu au HERE ヽ(・∀・)ノ they’re all going to change later probably heh.

It was pretty challenging trying to get all of them to fit their mascot (or in this case, their kingdom’s deity haha), so it’s a bit sloppy but at least it was fun to do. And I totally copped out on drawing their head gear lol. I’ll do one for the royals next though (oikawa/goshiki/kenma/kageyama).

Some quick background on the designs below the cut, if you’re interested:

Ya’ll been hitting me with that good lesbian pidge content so i’m gonna put more out there too.

• Pidge gets sUPER flustered around girls!!
• She’s only 14 and not super experienced?? So whenever a cute girl even talks to her she gets shy and blushy
• She isn’t super ready to start dating just yet but she just likes to remind everyone “man i love girls and i’m just!! A big lesbian! Just to remind everyone here!!”
• *rips off her sweater* “LESBIANS FOR LOCHNESS”
• When pidge gets a crush its super obvious to figure it out.
• She gets clumsy around them and messes up her words and probably accidentally broke one of her devices while talking to them.
• When everyone else finds out Pidge has a crush on someone they all flip out because “oh my god!! Our little sis has a crush!!”
• Lance would try to give her some flirting tips, but knowing Pidge, she obviously rejects that
• Lance: “oh my god do you wanna hear some advice?”
• Pidge: “I’d rather take my chances”
• Also pidge: “please i’m like 100x better at flirting with you, i could get 10 girlfriends in a week without your help!” *nervous laughter*
• Hunk would tease her but also give her some cliché advice that you hear in every show/movie

• Keith: “i don’t know what else to say so…” *thumbs up* “good luck”
• Pidge: “wow thanks”
• Shiro would actually probably give her solid advice
• Shiro, *jokingly*: “if you want to succeed… don’t listen to lance’s advice about anything”
• Lance: “haven’t i been the only one who actually got kissed by a cute alien girl?”

Thanks for reading please @ voltron fandom gimme that good lesbian pidge headcanons, art and fanfics.

The Jewish history of fish + chips

Fish and chips are a beloved British classic, but few people know the Jewish contribution to this favourite national dish.

While chips have their origins in France and Belgium, it was Jewish-Portuguese refugees who first brought fried battered fish to the UK in the 16th century. The fish was a Shabbat dish, which was battered with egg and breadcrumbs, fried in olive oil on Friday and eaten cold on the Saturday. The batter - so central to today’s fish and chips - was essential in keeping the fish from spoiling, and led to this style of cooking fish being known as fish ‘in the Jewish manner’.

While fish and chips existed as separate entities for a long time, they weren’t served together for a long time, though fried fish was sold as a street food on its own. The first person to serve them together was probably an Ashkenazi Jewish immigrant, Joseph Malin, who opened up the first fish and chip shop in London in 1860.

Nowadays fish and chips are one of the most popular British takeaways: one with an unexpected history!

kravitz: so, it seems like those three ‘reclaimers’ have defied death even more, along with the entire town of Refuge

the raven queen: i suppose so. i wouldnt worry about it, though; lady istus took care of that whole shebang 

kravitz: … i should probably go talk to one of them just to be sure

trq: hm, i appreciate your enthusiasm, but that wont be-

kravitz, picking out his best suit: no no its ok ill take care of this whole situation

trq: kravitz no youre literally dont have to-

kravitz, checking himself in the mirror: ill just stop by and make sure shenanigans arent at play here

trq: this really isnt necessa-

kravitz, already stepping through a rift: dont worry my lady ill get to the bottom of this

BUT AFTER ALL, I THINK WE CAN ALL AGREE THAT THE SPIRIT IN SKI JUMPING IS FREAKING AMAZING

anonymous asked:

What would the Batfam give to Dick in his bday?

-Bruce would probably give him some money or something because Dick has gone through numerous phases and so his interests always change and there was that one year where he asked Bruce to buy him a $999.99 dollar friendship necklace set of two forks that said “father” and “son” on them (Bruce said no, Dick was very upset)

-Jason would get him like a rock or something he found in a dumpster and wrap it in duct tape and just watch Dick struggle to open it before seeing that it’s trash. And then Jason would give him a nice card or something like that

-Tim would get him a nice sweater because people always steal Dick’s sweaters (usually Tim, Damian, and Cass) but it would probably be one that Tim wanted and would later steal

-Steph would get him a gag gift like a Batman snuggie except Dick would genuinely love it and so the humorous effect is lost but she’s glad Dick likes it

-Damian would go all out on a gift and then act like it’s no biggie. He’d probably paint something really cool and then brush it off like he didn’t just spend a month and a half making it

-Cass would make him a really cute card and get him something he had wanted/needed that he had mentioned offhandedly in a conversation a while back

-Babs would get him clothes probably because lord knows this man child cannot dress himself in a way that doesn’t make him look like a colour and pattern blind person

-Duke gets him various Superman paraphernalia that Dick could decorate his room with (and it always makes Bruce super pissed off/secretly jealous)

-Alfred would make him all of his favourite dishes to take back to Blüdhaven so that he doesn’t get as homesick for Alfred’s cooking

nothing hurt more than when I saw a picture of you and her. You barely ever took photos with me, let alone post them. And here you were posting pictures with this girl you barely knew, and I tried not to hate her, I tried not to hate you. But my insides felt like they were ripping apart at the sight of  you. And I knew this was going to happen eventually, I guess I was just hoping it wouldn’t.  
and its just so fucking pathetic, while I’ve spent all this time missing you.. you spent it with her. You never even thought of me once.
And all I can fucking do is imagine the way that you talk to her, its probably the same way I talked to you., like you were made out of the sun or something.
And I just don’t fucking understand how one person can leave such a huge mark on you when you can’t even leave a fucking scratch on them. Because you left me and I still see you every fucking where, and I never made you feel a damn thing. you never even cared for me.
I just want it to stop, I want it all to stop. I want to stop feeling every burning fire for you. I want to stop thinking of every word you said to me, I want to stop analyzing every little part of our relationship in trying to figure out where the fuck we went wrong because I get it now. I understand..
a relationship is always doomed to end in heartbreak when there is one person who loves more and in our case, I was always the one who loved more, and now it just hurts so bad because you love her. You love her even though I wanted you to love me.. even though I gave you every fucking piece of me. You chose her.
It will never be me and you. I was never enough, and the thought of that alone breaks me into a million pieces, so how the fuck am I supposed to feel when I realize why I wasn’t enough. When I see the face of the girl who was enough..
—  I don’t think I’ll ever get over you

So the other day I got this message in my inbox:

“What if ji and ksoo were to see the sexual and erotic stuff you shippers write/post about them? Just imagine how it makes them feel. As two men who are just friends it could make them really uncomfortable and they probably think its disrespectful too smh”

Rather than replying straight to this person and being petty, throwing shade and ready to fight like I usually am….I figured I’d reply with this nice and calm well thought out post since this subject comes up often with Kaisoo and I feel like this possibility needs a bit of exploration. :)

*****DISCLAIMER******: As everyone should know by now, I am a kaisoo supporter and this post is mainly to break down misconceptions in relation to them only. In other words, I am not speaking for other pairings/ships that arent Kaisoo. This is solely my perception and view on this so no shade will be tolerated. I edited this both on my laptop and my phone so idk if the “read more” shyt appeared…dont shoot me. The names of Kaisoo have been abbreviated to eliminate appearing in their respective tags. This post is also not to condone or promote the sharing of sexually explicit forms of shipping directly with the artists involved. (i.e messaging it to them on social media, mailing it to them, shouting things like “how hard does ji f*ck you” to ksoo in person, etcetera etcetera blah blah yada yada)

So, EXO debuted in 2012.

This makes about 4 years since they have been active in the industry.
Kaisoo shippers began noticing their interactions way before EXO’s debut.
Then, this airport photo that was released to the public was one of the first ones that showed how intimate they were with one another:

This pre debut photo was also leaked along with others, some of which were noted to have been much more intimate:

Eerily, these intimate photos vanished after EXO’s debut and are currently nowhere to be found online.

Anyway…moving on. :)


So we know that the kaisoo ship began its first stages of sailing around 2010-late 2011, before EXO’s debut.
Throughout all 4 years of EXO being active, both JI and KS have maintained steady and intimate interactions with one another. There were only two major periods during these 4 years of which the two seemed to be more distant around each other than usual. (There are many theories about this, research more if you’re interested.)

Simultaneously within these 4 years, the kaisoo pairing grew to become one of the longest and most popular pairings in EXO, to the point where it not only became one of EXO’s main pairings but one of the most popular pairings within the Korean idol industry as a whole.

That’s a lot of popularity, right?
I hope you are following along.

“Kaisoo” is what international fans use to refer to “KAI” and “KyungSOO” being paired.
However, in Korea, they are referred to as “KADI”

“KADI” is written as “카디 ” in hangul.
Below is a screencap from an interview for EXO’s 2nd box dvd that included both JI and KS, released in 2015:

As you can see, they both seem to be well informed about their Korean couple name, “Kadi”.

Okay, so what does this mean? Just cuz they know the name doesnt mean they’ve seen what fans draw of them! It should be kept private!

This brings me to my next point.
Again, KADI written in hangul is 카디.
One of Korea’s most popular search engines is “NAVER. It is Korea’s equivalent to GOOGLE in the US. More than 25 million people in South Korea have used NAVER.
NAVER has also collaborated with and sponsored many EXO related things both past and present.

I searched for 카디 in NAVER, and this is what came up:

On almost every page, there were drawings of JI and KS that were intimate and very erotic.

So, this leads me to my final point.


If we look at the timeline and how the kaisoo ship started before debut, it grew to be one of the most popular ships, they both know about their ship name and that erotic images show up when you search their name on NAVER (we could even factor in that JI has had an instagram in the past and that KS has been rumoured to have a private one)…then one could only conclude that the chance of them already having seen and possibly even read what fans have created about them is pretty high.

In short, I know a lot of you want to protect JI and KS and make sure that things like this stay private and out of their reach, but I am 99% sure that its too late for that and they have already seen these things.

I also don’t feel like protection is needed, though, and its because of this reason. If we can conclude that within 4 years they had to have been exposed to “erotic kaisoo fanart/fiction” then we can also conclude that there is a possibility that they aren’t bothered by it too much.

The reason for this once again goes back to the timeline. We know that the kaisoo pairing has been around since 2010. We also know there is a possibility they both knew about their pairing. 

 Hypothetically, lets say that I am and idol and found out that fans were looking at my interactions with another idol and creating sexual imagery out of these reactions and I don’t like it. My first reaction to limit this would be to reduce how much I interact with this person in the public eye. Less touching, less whispering, less laughing and being seen together. Whether fanservice or just normal interaction, if me being shipped with this person made me uncomfortable, the interaction with them would slow down. 

 But Kadi’s interactions with one another didn’t slow down until almost 2 years after debut, which would lead one to come to the conclusion that A.) They are not bothered by being paired with one another, and B.) The reactions slowed down for a reason other than them being uncomfortable with shipping.

I’m pretty sure they’re bothered and just feel like they can’t say anything cuz of SM!!

This is a possibility, but again not very likely. Remember not too long ago when Chanyolk put up that long post on instagram after people found out he started following a specific female idol? And we all know about how vocal Amburr has been lately about ef ex as well. KS was able to politely communicate that he no longer needs gifts from fans, so its safe to say that if shipping him with JI was an issue that would have been conveyed somehow too.

There is also so much evidence from Kaisoo themselves clearly showing how shipping doesnt seem to make them uncomfortable.

We have the sticker set that JI used on his phone. This sticker set was made by and given to him by a fansite:

In this sticker set there were drawings of JI by himself, JI with animals and KS drawings, but not any other member/idol. This also shows that, once again, kaisoo had been shipped by the public for a long time, giving them the likely hood of knowing about it. 

There are  also lots of videos in which you can see both JI and KS smiling at banners of which their ship name had appeared:

And then there is the eery coincidence of JI mentioning that one of his favorite songs was “Montreal” by the weekend, 4 years after it was used in a FMV for a kaisoo fanfic called “Arbitrage”:



Has he read the actual fic? Most likely not. But its possible he may have seen seen the FMV which included clips of him with KS as well.

I want to reiterate agian that this post is not to say that its okay to post sexual works of idol pairings in places that they will see it. Of course it should stay among shippers only. What Im saying is that on a website like tumblr, an idol from south Korea is not likely to see what shippers post and even still, because there are shippers who share things externally and search engines exist…there is the possibility that an idol has already seen what you’re trying to keep from them.


Whether you choose to acknowledge it or not, shipping is and always has been apart of the kpop industry. We know it, the companies know it and idols know it too.


With the internet being such an open way of communicating and sharing things for so many people, its only a matter of time before some nsfw shipping art is leaked on a platform that makes it more accessible to idols. But this is not something that you can blame shipping itself(especially when it is encouraged) or the MAJORITY of shippers for. The majority of us are not sending our NSFW kaisoo art and fics directly to KS and JI themselves. It was even Kaisoo shippers themselves who used our voices to stop the film adaptation of Anterograde Tomorrow in an effort to protect Kaisoo. The majority of us are just talking among ourselves on exclusive and private platforms and sharing our imagination in the form of art.


Every now and then someone may leak things that should have been kept private. But that is an issue for THOSE shippers, not shippers and shipping as a whole. There are good and not so good people in all fandoms, and there is nothing wrong with artistic expression among fans.


So in short, to answer your question…I (clearly) wonder sometimes if Kaisoo has seen what things shippers post about them all the time. I do acknowledge the possibility that they also may have seen these works. I do wonder how it makes them feel, but I also know that they are adults and if they do feel uncomfortable or if they feel its disrespectful they will tell us/show us in their own way and we don’t have to worry about protecting them from things like this. :)

I may be an asshole for many reasons but putting other ships down to prove my own isn’t one of them

anonymous asked:

So, you posted the quick history of Olexians quite a while ago, but I'd like to ask what it means by hoofed feet and animal heels?

there’s your arbitrary lieutenant fact of the day 

aquarians  lose themselves amongst the wave of collective idealism and humanitarian vision… the element here is air, inhaled and exchanged by everyone, so they can really float through this spirit.. aquarius is the mother of humanity, they feel the responsibility of guardianship to the earth and all of its inhabitants, and aquarius largely relates to a utopian world view, so one they saw reflecting these values politically would probably move them…
