Things to consider about Taehyung's probably real tattoos:
- it’s his body, not ours.
- as fans, he owes us nothing when it comes to his own body.
- it’s his money, not ours.
- if he got a tattoo, it means there’s no problem with bighit and that’s the only thing we can be worried about.
- don’t come with the ‘but he may be seen with bad eyes in korea!!’ speech because if he got it, he was fully aware of the consequences.
- he was born in 1995, what makes him 21 years old and in legal age to do whatever he pleases.
- he didn’t get that tattoo to please anyone but himself. as someone who has tattoos, we really don’t care about anyones opinion on it.
- his life. his body. his desires. no one has a saying on shit.
- if you dont like tattoos, fine. but dont bash on him for doing something he likes. anyone has the right to do whatever they want. he works hard and deserves to do as he pleases.
Things I wish somebody had told me in the beginning: witch edition
This is not a competition. Take it slow, enjoy the journey. You do not need to learn every crystal correspondence within a week.
Keep a journal/Grimoire/Book of Shadows if possible. Fill it up as you go. Do not just put the information somewhere to wait until you “have time” or “have more energy” (although these, and many more, are understandable reasons). It is less work to do a little all the time than try to catch up all at once.
You don’t need to be anything to be a witch. You are one, regardless of your gender, skin color, religious interests… If you think you’re one, you are. Witchcraft is a path, a tool, not a religion.
Wicca and witchcraft are not the same.
It is totally okay to take breaks. Setting aside your craft doesn’t mean you can’t come back and continue where you left off.
YOU are the most important tool. You do not need that expensive cauldron, or those rare herbs that have a double-digit price. Of course, supplies are needed for more complicated/powerful spells to help you out, but they are not necessary.
If your path changes, that is okay! If you were first interested in spells but then decided to focus more on deities and their worship, that’s okay!
On that note, it’s also okay to not know what your path is.
Like all people, witches have their opinions about various things. Listen carefully to both sides, research, but in the end make your own opinion that fits with your morals and worldview. Neither side is necessarily wrong, but both can be true.
Trust your gut/intuition. It knows a lot. If someone says X has Y correspondences, but in your opinion has Z, then this is true to you.
When researching things, remember to be critical and not trust everything you read blindly. Cross-reference.
Educate yourself on closed religions, slur words, racist symbols, appropriation of cultures and their words (see:smudging, chakra…) Do not be angry at yourself if you have used them before - you are always learning and growing as a person.
When in doubt, ask. The community is friendly and many are more than happy to help you. Asking never hurts, but don’t treat others as your Google.
Do not abandon science nor common sense. Witchcraft is powerful, and certain areas have direct influence (using herbs, for example), but it does not replace healthcare, therapy, or otherwise being healthy.
Practice safety. There is a reason why people tell you in rituals/spells/etc. to do things to protect yourself. When doing witchcraft, you are dealing with great powers and energy - sometimes that might be malicious.
Also, some general things like fire safety, checking for crystal toxicities in various substances, and herb properties are important to keep track of - these are physical things that can seriously harm you; and definitely work. Do not doubt that.
Do not lose yourself. While witchcraft gives us great power, it sometimes makes us lose ourselves. One might become so absorbed in their path that they forget things like eating, checking on friends, doing hobbies, and so forth. This path is part of your life, but your life does not consist only of the path.
Have fun! I believe this is one of the most important things. Witchcraft does not need to be serious; it can be Legos, glitter, pop-culture gods, sigils doodled with eyeliner… The possibilities are limitless!
One of the most unfortunate (and fortunate in some cases) aspects of completely delving yourself into a fandom is that you begin to accept how other people interpret characters versus how the true game interprets them. Like I mentioned, this can be a really awesome thing!
But sometimes, not so much.
A good example in our home sweet home, the tf2 fandom, would be the most antagonized character of the game (at least imo. Medic gets a lot of shit representation too)
Good ol’ Jane Doe.
Most of my opinion on this topic is from a personal experience so I’ll jump straight into that:
When I first joined this fandom/ got the game, my love for the characters was pretty contrastive; Medic was super up top, and engie, demo, and ya boy solly I wasn’t really into (yet of course). This was pretty realistic since I was newer and had set my heart on my favs. As I met people, enjoyed content, and created my own, my love began to spread and even out (thank God).
Except…one merc was still lagging. Soldier. As I matured in my knowledge and independence of interpretation I began to really notice why.
Soldier is portrayed very heavily as the angry hateful antagonist of many artistic scenarios, especially writing.
It’s too easy. Jane’s excessive expression of opinion and loud sense of patriotism and criticism made him an easy villain to give an insult, or cause a problem. I had seen this usage of his characterso oftenthat I had forgotten how this absolute DORK teleported fuckin bread for three whole days, just out of childish impulse
LIKE HOLY HECK HE IS SO BUBBLY AND ALL OVER THE PLACE! The interpretation is flawed in one major place. Is Soldier someone who has opinionated outbursts?? Yes. Are they all based on hate and bias?? NO. Soldier is very expressive in all fields, including excitement, love, and the support he has for his team
The team part is a big one. Like wtf are you thinkin’ Jane LOVES his teammates!! He is extremely supportive and doesn’t seem to push his insults any further than impulsive outbursts
look at him smiling during scout’s date!! He’s so proud
he’s so loving in his own way
anyway this kinda turned into a soldier appreciation post that is too long but uh yeah pls he’s not awful he’s a big ol dork thanks
On this website you can express your opinion freely, ship whoever you want, draw however you want, like whichever character you want and do absolutelly what you love without being judged by anyone! because this website understands that everyone has different opinions!
How fucking dare you you heartless uneducated son of a bitch? go kill yourself!
Your book club is seated around a table. There is tension in the air - someone has voiced a controversial opinion. Someone else has disagreed. You offered your own take on the matter; a few people laughed, a few more nodded their heads thoughtfully or wrote something down. The debate becomes heated. No one can fully agree on the characterization, the execution of the storytelling, the role of the environment, the symbolism in the imagery. Did the author intend for this line to be read as homoerotic subtext? Was the protagonist’s commitment to his quest ultimately his downfall? Did the mid-series change in tone reflect the author’s growing awareness of and empathy towards social inequalities?
Suddenly, there is a gust of wind. The door has swung open! A figure stands silhouetted against the raging storm, shoulders stooped, as if weighed down by weary responsibility. All is silent as you wait for him to speak.
“Shit’s all fake, yo,” he says, grim voice rumbling like the thunder. Then he is gone.
It’s as if you have been plunged into cold water. Your mouth hangs open and your limbs jerk violently - once, twice - before going limp. You feel like a puppet whose strings have finally been cut. Fake? Of course… you must have known that, surely, once upon a time. All your concerns flow out of you, draining out of your brain, leaving you light and refreshed and clear-headed. Fake? Of course. Of course.
You look around, and everyone wears matching expressions of awe and relief. You are finally free. All of you! All because of that brave, mysterious stranger who dared to speak the truth. Everything’s changed now. The book club files out the door and disperses into the grass, staring up into the rolling sky while the rain washes your upturned faces. You are free. Thank god. Thank god.
Unpopular opinion: I think that Sherlock deserved to get beat up by John, because it was building up since Sherlock faked his death. Plus it kinda was Sherlock's fault that he goaded Norbury too much and that is why she shot the gun.
In a way I understand he got a little cocky with Norbury, but I think she was going to fire anyway. And Sherlock blames himself enough for that.
But HE DID NOT deserved to be beaten up the way John did. Not with Sherlock that high, not with Sherlock already on the floor, not with Sherlock already bleeding. NOT after Molly said he could have only weeks!
Sherlock deserved a punch in the face? Maybe. John was grieving, yes, ok, but come when Sherlock can punch back, even when he wouldn’t do it. John took advantage of Sherlock’s weakness and no, that was not justified at all.
Okay, before I answer this: I’m 44 years-old and I don’t have the time or focus to watch thousands of hours of anime like I did when I was a kid and we got bootleg VHS copies of whatever was available at the local comic convention. Whenever this comes up, someone who is younger than my children has LOTS OF OPINIONS about why I’m too late to the party, or boring, or whatever. I don’t need to hear that, so save your time, if you’re thinking it’s a good idea (this isn’t just YOU, you, I mean it’s the entire Tumblr “you”).
Recently, I have loved One Punch Man, Psycho Pass, and Ergo Proxy. I’m very late to the party on Cowboy Bebop, but I have massively loved every episode I have watched.
I was so into Death Note, but I got really bored about 15 or so episodes in, where I felt like two minutes of story were stretched out into 30 minutes of show.
I watch dubs and subs, depending on my mood. I know a lot of people who do the dubs (and I’ve done them, myself) so I know that time and energy and effort goes into making them as faithful to the original intent and performance as possible.
I don’t have a single favorite video game. At the moment, I’m replaying some NES games on my RetroPie, and I’m working my way through maybe actually completing the story in GTA V for the first time. But I’ll never say no to Robotron, Black Widow, Dr. Mario, Mr. Do!, or Sinistar.
Oh, and I’m having a good time playing TopSoil on my phone when I poop.
You know what? I could go on for hours about how wrong it is that Valentina stans reduced Alexis to tears, or that they are now going to Shea’s Instagram and posting pictures of snakes, but I will not. I will keep this short, so if you are a hateful Valentina stan reading this, fuck you. Fuck you if you have sent hate to a queen, fuck you if you send hate to their fans, and fuck you if you think it is ok in ANY way to threaten physical violence. I REFUSE to stand by and watch y’all hateful fuckers drive this community to the ground. So if you are pissed that someone has a different opinion then yours, or that your favorite isn’t perfect, then my ask box is always fucking open and you can take it up with me.
on a serious note, i wish they would stop mentioning jimin’s weight when teasing him. jimin and the other members have said countless times he struggles with his weight. there are so many other things to poke fun about. that shouldn’t be one of them.
So, this is a sequel to my one and only Sam GIF drabble, which is

originally gonna write smut in that gif drabble until my wrist bitched out. So
now that I have no excuse, here we go.
shout-out to the ever-wonderful @saxxxology and @leatherwhiskeycoffeeplaid for
reading and beta-ing this when I became convinced that it was shit. They’re the best ladies in the entire world.
