14. TO MOUNT LANAYRU

“Be sure to take the time to soothe your mount… that’s the only way it will know how you truly feel.” Your advice was quite helpful- thank you. This little one and I are getting along quite well now. At first, I wasn’t sure if I should outfit him with all of the royal gear. I thought maybe he should have to earn it first. But it works! He wears it like a true natural. I’m trying to be a bit more empathetic. Benefit of the doubt, you know? See that mountain? That’s Mount Lanayru. It takes its name from the Goddess of Wisdom. Lanayru’s decree is very specific. It says: “No one is allowed, under the age of seventeen… for only the wise are permitted a place upon the mountain.” I’ve prayed at the Spring of Courage and at the Spring of Power, yet neither awoke anything inside me. But maybe up there… perhaps the Spring of Wisdom, the final of the three, will be the one. To be honest, I have no real reason to think that will be the case. But there’s always the chance that the next moment will change everything. Tomorrow… is my seventeenth birthday. So then I shall go… and make my way up the mountain.

tfw you love a Thing and your Friends but sometimes the two just don’t mix

This was a sad Eurovision for Spain not because we lost, but because we wanted zero points SO BAD we got frustrated when someone gave us five.

Gotham City Sirens Print Giveaway Contest!

Well this hit 2,000 notes in a pretty short amount of time, so to celebrate I’ve decided to hold a little contest!

1st place randomly chosen winner will receive all three prints in the large size (11x14), and I’ll pick a couple of runner up winners to receive the smaller prints–either the three small size (5x7) or the one medium one with all three in it (6x18), winner’s choice!  (Mostly because I was indecisive as to which one to print–like I like all three of them in the panoramic, but the cropped 5x7 ones came out nice too…)  Here are the official rules:

1. Reblog and/or Like this post as many times as you like, I don’t care–if you really want these prints feel free to reblob a million times

2. Must be following me to win!  This is a thanks to my followers who liked/reblogged the piece initially as well as to all the new followers I’ve gotten recently, so I would love for one of you guys to win and not some random non-follower

3. Deadline to enter is about three weeks from now on Sunday, April 2 at midnight Jersey time (ET) and the winner will be announced at some point after that

4. Participants must have their ask box/messenger thing open so that I can contact the randomly chosen winner for their mailing address

5. Doesn’t matter where you live, I’ll mail to anywhere—as long as you’ve got a legit mailing address somewhere and a mail person can reach you it’ll get there

I believe that covers everything!  Contest begins now, good luck everybody!

who should you fight: dirk gently edition
  • dirk gently: he probably won't fight back, but that doesn't mean beating him will be easy. he took two crossbow arrows to the shoulder and kept going for god's sake. besides, why the fuck would you want to fight dirk? he is the sweetest, most pure boy there is and you'll have farah, todd, and amanda to answer to
  • todd brotzman: he's pretty scrappy, but lacks technique. you might be able to beat todd and honestly he might thank you for it
  • farah black: farah is a professional bodyguard, owner of many many guns, and all around bad-ass. you will not win in a physical fight. however, farah is pretty insecure and neurotic so with some emotional manipulation you could maybe win. i would hate you forever though
  • amanda brotzman: she's scrappy as hell, possibly even more so than her brother. unless she has an attack during the fight, it should be a pretty even match. if you fight her though, you'll have to fight all four of the rowdy three so do not fight amanda
  • bart curlish: depends on who you are. if you're a bad person, you'll be killed immediately. if you're a good person, you won't be killed but you likely won't be able to hurt bart either. kind of a lose/lose-worse situation
  • ken: i mean yes you could definitely beat this boy in a fight but why would you want to? let him rest
  • the rowdy three: are you fucking kidding me have you ever seen the rowdy three? do not fight them, you will get obliterated
  • estevez: would not recommend fighting estevez. he's pretty strong and has professional training, and probably works through his emotions by punching things. right now, he has a lot of emotions
  • zimmerfield: honestly it's a bit of a toss up. he's pretty old and i don't think he's gotten that much action in the field recently, but his eyebrows are powerfully hypnotic. do not fight if you get easily transfixed on things
  • gordon rimmer: oh man yeah you could definitely beat gordon rimmer, just make sure he doesn't have the electric crossbow and that his goonies aren't nearby
  • patrick spring: it depends on when you fight him. young patrick spring? probably a bad idea. middle-aged patrick spring with the steamsuit? also a bad idea. old patrick spring? yeah you could probably take him then, he's older and has resigned to death anyway
  • lydia spring: you want to fight a literal child? go ahead i guess, you'll beat her but will get killed by farah
  • hugo friedkin: he's dumb as hell but also pretty jacked and a federal agent. i would not recommend fighting friedkin, unless it's like a reading fight
  • colonel riggins: he's part of the cia but is also an gentle old man. you could definitely beat colonel riggins
  • rapunzel the corgi: what the fuck? why would you want to fight a dog you sick fuck

I hit 5k followers so time to give back some love!

What can you win?

  • 1st place - 1 full color with simple background commission. Up to two characters

Rules:

  • This is a giveaway for followers, so you must be following to win. No giveaway blogs please. New followers welcome.
  • Likes and reblogs both count as 1 entry each. Multiple reblogs will only count once.
  • The winner will be picked at random, please have your inbox open for me to message you. Also must be willing to give an address to ship prints to. Also must be 18 or older.

Feelings

Reader x Klaus Mikaelson

(NOT MY GIF)

*requested

Imagine: You are Rebekah Mikaelson’s best friend and, ah, a mermaid. She brough you home in a gesture act. What she did not expect was that her brother, Klaus, would fall for you and, whilst doing so, he win your heart over.

Warnings: swearing, kissing, some violent descriptions (not that big of a deal), mentions of sex, fluff

Word Count: 4250 (i think i broke my record with this one)


Patiently waiting for Rebekah Mikaelson, who happened to be your best friend for quite some time now, at a bar, you thought of how much your life had changed in the past year. All because you were forced to abandon your mermaid nature after one reckless night you spend at a forbidden cave; sure, your mother had warned you what would happen if you went there during a full moon, but you always thought she was just being an overprotective mum. Ultimately, she was not, for the next morning you woke up entirely naked. Oh, and with freaking legs instead of your blueish tail as well.

A gentle chuckle left your lips when you remembered the stunned looks the humans gave you once you managed to get out of the cave. Nudity can get them incredibly nervous.

“I presume you’re waiting for my sister, love.” A masculine voice, soaked in a marvellous British accent, said. “May I keep you company?”

“Suit yourself, Niklaus.” Your reply was short, straight to the point. “But I warn you she’ll be mad if she finds you here.”

“I know how to deal with Rebekah.” He smirked, sitting on one of the chairs and facing you with those deep blue eyes. “You know that.”

Preparation is key 🔑 it literally takes 20 minutes (give or take a few depending on what you’re making) to prepare meals for tomorrow if you plan to be on the go. ‘I don’t have enough time ’ is NO excuse for spending $50+ dollars on take out a week because you were too lazy to buy and make your own food. Food that you know exactly how it’s cooked and what it’s cooked with. Who knows what exactly you’re getting when you buy food out? Even if you believe it’s healthy-may not be as good as you think. So instead of scrolling through Instagram for half an hour, or watching two extra YouTube videos, or watching TV, use that time to make your breakfast/lunch/dinner/snacks for the next day if you’re going to be on-the-go all day. (School, work, etc etc). You’ll save a heap of money and notice better results for it. HEY, you could even prep your meals whilst you watch TV/YouTube and so on…win win situation right? Some Inspo in this photo is some of my favourites! Yoghurt, muesli and fruit for brekky and some brown rice, chicken and Veges for lunch! If that’s not what floats your boat, come up with another idea for your meals and snacks! Omelettes, smoothies, Sandwiches, leftover dinners, stir fries, salads, fruit, Veges and hommus, homemade protein brownies/muffins/bliss balls, ETC! So many ideas. Just spend the time to prep your meals and you’ll feel much better for it-and your purse will too 😜😜

In November 2015, I got the audition. I was at home. I was living in North Carolina with my parents. I was 19, at that point. I was going to move to L.A. in January. I had to self-tape with my mom, but it didn’t go anywhere. The casting director wasn’t really taken with it. It wasn’t really that good of an audition, on my part, so I was like, “Okay, you win some, you lose some.”

  • Some SH Blogs: Shadowhunters fans are never happy. They complain about everything. I hope this show gets canceled.
  • Me: Man, get off my docks.
Team Floriana Lima

I find very funny how a post about not being interested in the ethnicity of someone suddenly makes you … a racist? When in fact, it means the opposite, I thought it was obvious. Apparently are some people who don’t know us, hate us just because we only care about Floriana’s performance as Maggie and because we don’t hate her. Friends, there are some mentally unstable people out there, I can tell.

For those whose believe in that absurd thought (the one of racism), I don’t know if you just ignore what ethnicity means or you’re just stupid, and tbh, the racists here are you, because you’re discriminating against a “white” actress playing a latin role, yes racism works that way too… Btw, Floriana Lima is actually a Latin woman, so, think about another reason to hate her, probably it’ll be as ridiculous as this one.
