I know next to no one will see this post, and the few people who do see it will already be aware of this fact, but that one gif of the guy picking a leaf out of the air and biting it
yeah that one. It’s from an anime series called Macross 7, the first direct television sequel to the original Super Dimension Fortress Macross if I recall correctly. And I want everyone to know that, because that up there isn’t even the weirdest thing to happen in that show.
Just, fuckin, look at that! That’s the kind of style today’s anime just doesn’t have!
So, besides just being a fucking weird series in general, it is about a rock band called Fire Bomber that live on an intergalactic space colony and pilot transformable mecha using their instruments. Specifically, the main character, Nekki Basara, pilots his mech with an electric guitar. I’m serious.
Over the course of the story their primary goals are to a.) get signed to a record label while also retaining their artistic integrity as musicians and b.) defend their colony from an invading species of mecha piloting alien space vampires using the power of ROCK! And I mean that literally btw. Basara is a pacifist, like an actual pacifist, he hates fighting and killing needlessly and will not do so unless there is literally no other options available and even then will do everything he can to avoid it. (So, like, Kira Yamato if he wasn’t a total bitch. And played guitar.) And their music is the only thing that hurts the space vampires without killing them(I think, kinda going by memory right now).
So, yeah. Macross 7 is a very good show and I highly recommend that everyone watches it.
local psych and writing major with bad grammar here to tell you about subtle body language shit people do when they’re talking to help out with writing interactions:
note that people who are high self monitors will notice these behaviors more often and can adapt to different conversations more than those who are low self monitors, who may not realize that they are reacting inappropriately in a situation.
second note that we only remember a fraction of dialogue and conversation, what sticks in our mind is how a person made us feel during the conversation
women, parents, good teachers, and actors are more sensitive to gestures and expressions and noticing subconscious behaviors in others.
please note that some of this may not apply to everyone, keep in mind where these social situations could change for your neurodivergent, mentally ill, and disabled characters
under the cut, i go through non-verbal interaction, gestures, personal space, and eye contact
You don’t have to get a definitive altar- You can set up an altar only when you need one. You can keep your things in a box.
Wardrobe altar- You can set up your altar in your wardrobe, in case you don’t have space or you are not allowed to have an altar in another place
Bathroom altar- This is also for the case you don’t have liberty to have it somewhere else and you need privacy. This is good for non-definitive altars.
Travel altar/ mini altar- You can create your own version of your altar for travelling, by making it with natural things and in a smaller proportion to fit your bag or you can buy one. There are some cute mini altars available on internet.
Outdoor altar- This one is good for connecting better with nature. Also it’s a good way to the non- definitive altar, because obviously if you leave your things outside someone might take it or the wind and the rain might destroy it.
Kitchen Altar- if you are a kitchen witch, you can set up an altar in your kitchen. It can be with the tools and the position as you wish or you can go the some other traditional set up.
Garden- If you are into gardening and herbs you can create your whole garden in positions and add tools that represent that place as a sort of sacred/ altar place to perform your magic. Or you can get a recipient and create a mini version of it. The set up and the tools can be as you feel it’s correct for your work.
Wicca altar- This is the “traditional” set up, that you will find in most wiccan books:
9. Other types:
Divide the tools into feminine (left); masculine (right), here you can use whatever you want and the set up can be as you wish.
Seasonal altar: decorate with the fruits, colors, and symbols that best represent the season
Be with someone who lets you know that your past is absolutely and unbelievably okay to have. Be with someone who encourages you to tell your stories about any former lovers, friends, or other person that helped mold you to your present being. Be with someone who wants the best for you, even when it isn’t the best for them. Be with someone who pushes you to be a better versions of yourself, who expands your mind, and opens you up to a space of growth. Be with someone who reminds you that with or without them, you are still shining like the brightest star in the sky.
You can make yourself feel like shit, you don’t need another person to do it.
Representation in video games (but mostly overwatch)
Honestly guys not everyone is gay, straight people exist and you can’t expect Blizzard to just simply exclude them from representation because you don’t want that. The way I see it overwatch is a game about diversity it has a character for everyone, every overwatch player gets something they like, and that does not exclude straight people. Everyone deserves sexual representation in this game weather you gay, straight, bi, or anything. It doesn’t matter we’re all human.
I feel like what the overwatch writer’s are trying to achieve with their game is this. No matter who you are, or who you like, or how you look, or what gender you are, if you are a supportive person a defensive person or an offensive person, no matter what you are. You are just as important as everyone else, because at the end of the day we are all human therefore…
i really love jean and renee’s friendship and im violently procrastinating so here you go: (½ this one’s jean centered and the next one will be renee centered i think)
jean and renee are both eachother’s number one on speed dial, and this never changes. they both set it that way right before jean left for the trojans and their reasoning is when shit burns down, who do i want to talk to?
during jean’s first week at usc, he’s instantly overwhelmed. everyone is so cheerful, and optimistic, and there is no black in sight. as a result, he compartmentalizes and only talks to his teammates and coaches when absolutely necessary. the worst part is that they respect his boundaries. kevin pulled him aside and said that he didn’t tell jeremy anything that the press didn’t know, so why were they being so nice when they had no idea what riko did? he struggles to voice his this and has to type and retype every message because the culture shock is so jarring.
renee responds by calling him every night and with every anecdote about the ravens she offers one up about her mother or the bloodhounds and the knowledge that she has been taken apart the same way he has but is still alive gives him something to look towards.
sometimes when thinking about it is too much, he’ll teach her random words in french (she forces kevin and neil to teach her the language during their spare time, because she wants to be able to hold a conversation with him one day)
soon, he adjusts to the trojans. he doesn’t understand how jeremy ends practices with smiles and high fives, or alvarez grins whenever he outdoes her during practice, but it starts to become routine; the same way heavy racquets against skin were.
what also becomes routine is jeremy’s kindness and blinding smiles and the weird feeling in his stomach that accompanies it. he doesn’t understand how someone can be so good.
he tells renee about it a week after the fluttering feeling starts and her response is swift and jarring:
“you like him”
“no i don’t.”
“that’s what andrew used to say about neil. what dan used to say about matt.”
“this is different”
the more he thinks about it, the more sense it makes. whenever he sees laila draped over alvarez while they watch cartoons there’s a part of him; one that he can’t quash no matter how hard he tries that wants that to be him and jeremy
jeremy and kevin use their bromance to set up a friendly scrimmage, and jean spends every spare minute talking to renee and avoiding kevin and neil
they take a long walk (matt bets that they’re a thing. idiot.) he asks her how to get rid of his feelings because he knows that they won’t amount to anything and he is too fractured to get hurt again
it takes her a couple minutes to formulate an answer, because it’s the same reasoning she has always used
so they make a promise: he’ll take a chance on jeremy, and she’ll take a chance on allison
Yay I finally did it! This is one of my favourite outfits from city living and I just needed it in some more neutral/ toned down colours.
Moonphase Sims: City Living full body recolour.
Getting rid of the jacket texture was a pain so I wouldn’t call it perfect but its good enough for me! Hopefully someone else will find some use for it. I’m more than happy to take swatch requests for this if you want some better toned down colours. I kinda ran outta ideas! I’m going to make a plain bright version of this as well at some point.
Feel the excruciating pain. Shout it out from the top of your lungs. Cry your heart out until your eyes hurt. Have time for your unending flashbacks. Let it be. Don’t suppressed it. Let your emotions burn your whole system. Let your mind ignites it more. Let your feelings burn to ashes. Endure it until it makes you numb. Until you have no choice but to let it all flow. You need time to feel this. Reminisce everything until your head aches. Drown yourself of tears until you fall asleep. Do it for yourself because you need it. Do it as you wanted to, do it until you get tired and you have no choice but to breathe from that suffocating place you have been.
Your heart have been tortured numerous times that it kills you figuratively.
You deserve more than that.
Your life doesn’t depend on that someone. You have your family and your friends. You are loved. You’re precious.
You’re a lovely living creature. Too lovely that, that someone can’t handle you. It’s not your fault. It’s not that someone’s fault either. It’s the universe choice.
Because everything happens for a reason, we may know it know but soon we will. It’s either to save us from someone who’s not good for us or better than that. Let’s be thankful of this pain, it makes us feel alive. It makes us who we are in the near future.
Those negative emotions? Kill that too. Burn it with your whole system for you to be able to start new.
Keeping grudge is no good. Bitterness won’t take you somewhere. Regrets won’t take back time. Despair and loneliness won’t change anything. Don’t depressed yourself on something that had happened. Instead, be thankful and let it be the reason for the better version of you.
After burning all those emotions, make sure that there’s no debris left. Forgive even that someone is not sorry. Not because that someone needs it but because it will help you feel at ease. Have peace for yourself. Don’t let it consume you but don’t forget the lesson you’ve learned from it.
Most especially, take time for yourself. No one is pressuring you to move on that fast and you don’t have to pretend that you are. Time won’t heal scars but it will help you realize the significant things in life.
I just think it needs to be restated that the importance of acotar/acomaf is that Feyre doesn’t try to change Tamlin or to save him. In SO MANY books, the heroine “saves” the love interest and his mildly abusive tendencies turn into protective love and everything his great. From seeing my own friends endure abuse and from enduring really unhealthy relationship myself…I know for a fact that people don’t change like that. And thats why I LOVE that Feyre doesn’t try to change Tamlin. She gets out. She leaves. She has help from others, but ultimately it’s her decision to leave and stay away. Rather than changing Tamlin into someone good and not abusive (WHICH AGAIN DOES NOT HAPPEN IN REAL LIFE), she learns to love herself again, and finds her own agency, and then falls in love with someone who truly looks out for her and cares and treats her as an equal!! Rhys may have treated her poorly UtM, but we all know he was also enduring abuse and had limited powers—when he is out from UtM he ONLY ever treats Feyre the way that anyone deserves to be treated. She doesn’t have to change him with her love or any of that crap. He just always, 100% is what she needs him to be. He rescues her from her wedding when no one else will. He feeds her when he knows she is depressed and has an eating disorder. He plays jokes on her to get her to laugh. He teaches her to read. He pushes her physically so that she gets stronger and becomes capable of defending herself (which she couldn’t do when she was with Tamlin). He just…is already perfect for her. (emphasis on for her, because Rhys isn’t everyone’s perfect man).
AND THAT IS WHAT WE ALL DESERVE. You do NOT need to suffer in a relationship trying to “fix” or “heal” someone so that they no longer abuse you. You do not need to be a better or different version of yourself so that they stop abusing you. There is someone out there who will love you for you and who will already be perfect for you. There is someone out there who will treat you right form the very beginning and never waver. YOU DON’T HAVE TO SUFFER AN ABUSIVE ASSHOLE FOR LOVE. you don’t have to change a guy or girl to make them a suitable partner. You can and will find someone who is good and kind right from the start.
miles: i’m not the best with words or.. whatever this is really so bare with me ok? i’m a shitty person. i’m selfish and i’m fucked up and the only thing i’m good at is hurting others. it’s never really been a problem in the past.. i’ve never cared how it affected people, until you.
miles: i’m sorry for taking this long to get my emotions in order but i care so much about you syl.. you’re the only person that’s ever made me feel like this.. and that scares the shit out of me..
miles: maybe.. maybe this doesn’t help, and showing up here tonight makes me seem like an idiot.. i can’t promise i can be fixed or changed or whatever , but you make me want to try to at least. i just want to be there for you.. i want to be someone you can be proud of.. i’m hoping you can forgive me, for everything..
sylvie: all i’ve wanted is you.. you don’t need to change anything, i don’t want some ‘better’ version of yourself because you’re perfect to me.. i’m sorry i pushed you away.. i-i just didn’t want to make you uncomfortable.. i thought if i kept my distance, feelings would fade and it wouldn’t hurt as much when i saw you with other girls..
miles: there’s no one else for me sylvie.. nobody else matters more to me than you..
