someone should go and write this

I saw some girl write ‘Hermione should have ended with someone who fit her better than Ron, Draco for example’ somewhere and had a good laugh. I’m far from being a Romione shipper and I don’t think their relationship would have lasted. But if you’re going to name someone who fits her better, you might as well say Harry or Krum instead of naming someone worse.

In a couple of years you're gonna be working at a hospital and someone comes and tell you "my chest hurts!" And you're like: "have you experienced any truma recently?" and they go "YES I REREAD CHAPTER 13 OF UMFB&MHA"

Haha, this is assuming I don’t fail out of med school because I spend waaaaay too much time writing fic instead of studying as hard as I should!

anonymous asked:

I agree with the other anon on a point. You barely post anymore. You abandoned your art blog literally days after you started it and you stop doing RPs after 4-5 replies. Your reputation to me is one showing someone who wants to write as veigar, but can't anymore. IMO you should delete and move on.

//you know anon, this is actually what I asked for when I said I wanted constructive criticism. I may just follow your suggestion. It’s been a fun time but idk if I really should continue or leave. The people I originally joined with are long gone, my motivation is spotty at best, and im going through a lot in my personal life which is likely why im in a constantly sad/shitty mood. 

I just don’t know right now.

Honestly, you are right. I should probably delete and go on, but I think I’ll stay. I’m stupid enough to think things will get better for me

It’s easy to fall in love with someone like her. You can write essays about her in alphabet soup and you can feel her in your room long after she’s left. It’s like having your guardian angel always in your bed. You should never let her go either. If you lose her you’ll still find traces of her in your bedroom because she never leaves. Someone like her is someone you feel for the rest of your life.

Love is not posting pictures online and sending long messages every night so you know I appreciate you. Love is not talking every day just so we are not going to forget we both care. Yes, it is great to do those things when you love someone, but it should not be something that you need. Love is, not talking all day and knowing you still love someone and nothing will change it. Love is, when you go out late and call me when you get home even though I am asleep because you know how much I worry. Love is, when you stop making up excuses and admit you did something wrong and apologizing for your mistakes and try not to do them again. Love is, “please get your homework done so you can get the job you want and be happy in the future”. That is love. Love is, “let’s go to bed we both need rest and I don’t want to go without you”. Love is, “I know you’re out watching the sunset because you’re upset, and I’m really sorry. But I’m upset too and would like you to go home so you can FaceTime me.” And then leaving my favorite thing because you will always be a priority to me. Love is not always the big things that everyone else will notice, but the small things that are not going to be noticed by anyone except each other. I do not need extravagant to mean love. I need you.

malec fics I’ll probably never write but someone definitely should and also tag me so I can read them:

inspired by this post by @otppurefuckingmagic

  • Alec Lightwood has a job interview that could change his future, finally help him free himself from his parents’ hold on his life. So, obviously, he is freaking out. What better way to relax than to go have a drink the night before? At least, that’s what Izzy and Jace say when they drag him to Pandemonium, the new club that opened a few blocks away. Alec might be prone to believe them after a while, especially when he finds himself on his way to have the night of his life with the hottest guy he’s ever seen a few hours later. Magnus - or Sex on Legs as Alec has decided to call him in his head - even is sweet enough to cook him breakfast the next morning before they part with each other’s number but the knowledge that neither of them was looking for anything more. They just don’t have time for a real relationship and they’ve made it clear. Alec is convinced he will never see him again. That is until he gets to his job interview and Magnus is sitting there with a grave expression, a suit that makes him look annoyingly appealing and a raging bruise on his neck.
  • Joining the New York Philharmonic orchestra has always been Alec’s dream and he made it come true through years of hard work and lost sleep. Now he finally has a chance to become First Chair, but a newcomer threatens to steal his well-deserved place as leader. Magnus Bane is a prodigy and if his technique is flawless, it is the passion that transpires from his every motion when he plays the violin that grabs anyone’s - and Alec’s - attention. Alec wants to hate him, he really does, but it doesn’t help that in addition to being so frustratingly talented, Magnus Bane is also sweet and patient and utterly charming. And he refuses to make the run for First Chair feel like the competition it actually is. Alec might be screwed.
  • Magnus and Alec babysitting Clary and Jace’s child, but the child has a huge crush on Magnus and spends the whole night pulling pranks on Alec whenever they start acting like the married couple they are. Alec loves the kid. He does, but he is slowly starting to lose his mind and if that little demon prevents him from kissing his husband one more time, he might lose it. Magnus just thinks it’s hilarious - and adorable - to have two children - one of them being a 6′2 shadowhunter - fighting for him.
  • Magnus is a Robin Hood-esque character and he particularly likes to steal from the Lightwood family.
  • A Beauty and the Beast AU with Magnus as Belle and Alec as the Beast. Also featuring Jace the candlestick, Izzy the clock, Maryse the teapot and Max the teacup. Luke, Magnus’ adoptive father, gets lost in the forest while trying to help a injured wolf he found on the road on his way back from the city and he comes across the Beast’s castle, and gets captured. After they learn the news, Magnus goes to the castle and offers to take Luke’s place, despite Luke’s objection… We all know how that story ends. Sebastian as Gaston? I guess?
  • Magnus goes to his favorite coffee shop and the place is crowded so he ends up sharing a table with a stranger who also turns out to be the epitome of Tall, Dark and Handsome. They start talking because Alec is reading a book by Magnus’ favorite writer, Gideon Archer, and Alec keeps dragging the guy and hating on his books and Magnus just can’t have that. They argue for hours about it and regularly meet afterwards to talk about literature and books, and after a few meetings, book talks turn into anything and everything talks. When Alec realizes he is in love with Magnus, it’s probably already too late to tell him that he is, in fact, Gideon Archer.
  • Izzy and Jace get Alec and his son Max a cruise for Christmas because he hasn’t taken a vacation for ages. On the ship, they meet Magnus and his son Raphael, who are on a well-deserved vacation themselves. Max and Raphael hit it off as soon as they meet and decide they will spend every minute possible together. If they use that time to make up an intricate plan to get their dads together, well… what they don’t know can’t hurt them.
  • Alec and Magnus are both professors at NYU but they work in different departments and have never stumbled into each other. That is until one evening, Alec sees a stranger standing under the pouring rain and offers to share his umbrella with him and walk him home. He just doesn’t want him to get sick. This has nothing to do with that guy being the hottest piece of ass he has ever seen. He’s just being a nice person.
  • The Proposal AU. (seriously, why hasn’t this been done yet?)
  • Victorian AU. I have no plot for this one but I need it like I need air.
  • <p> <b>My friends (looking at my phone):</b> what is Bellarke/Starco/Adrinette?<p/><b>Me (beeing tired to death):</b> my... Titanics *creepy ass smile*<p/><b>My friends (worried):</b> r u ok? What does that mean?<p/><b>Me (fully awake):</b> *screams* SHIPS OF DREAMS! *blanks out*<p/><b>My friends:</b> ...<p/><b></b> Dafuq just happend<p/></p>
Flowers for my sister

A/N: So when I was in Jr/Sr high they had fundraisers where for a dollar someone could buy you a rose & have it sent to on Valentine’s day. Throughout the day people would go into the classroom & pass out the flowers. They had notes on it with who it was from & whatever message they wanted. So I’m sitting here going “what fic should I write for Valentine’s day & this popped into my head.” Reader is Dean’s twin. The ending is kinda rushed but that’s because it’s bedtime but I wanted to post this on actual Valentine’s Day. Enjoy my loves.

“What?” You hissed at him.

“What’s going on? Why are you all, moody?” He asked.

“Nothing. Just drop it, okay?” You replied before taking a bite out of the lunch the school provided for you.

“It’s not nothing if you’re acting like a-” Dean began but was interrupted by Sam rushing over to the table.

“Y/N are you okay?” Sam asked, out of breath from running, “I heard what happened and ran ove-”

“I’m fine Sam. Just drop it. Both of you. Okay?” You told them.

“Sam. Spill. Now.” Dean demanded.

“Sam, you open your mouth and you’re gonna regret it.” You replied.

Sam looked between you and Dean; you were both his older siblings, both of you were his heroes, normally he did what you asked, but this time he couldn’t.

“It’s Valentine’s day right? So these guys-” Sam started.

“Seriously Sam. Drop. It.” You hissed at him.

I guess I should’ve learned a long time ago how to recognize unhealthy relationships before they really start to mess you up.

It’s all the things you’ve heard from your parents when you were young: people who mistreat you don’t deserve your love, you have no obligation to anyone who tries to buy your affection, your worth is so much more than anyone who tries to place a value on your body. Phrases engrained in your mind but somehow they go mute when you find yourself giving that one person just one more chance because you really believe in them, because they can change, you can help them do it.

When they buy you flowers, or take you out somewhere nice instead of saying sorry for that other night, instead of starting to listen to you when you talk, instead of actually answering your texts when you try and ask them about their day. That’s when you should realize that a relationship is not a membership someone needs to subscribe and write checks out to. It’s never IOU’s attached to broken hearts and tear stained pillows.

It’s hearing each other’s fears and wants and wishes and deciding that maybe you don’t understand them completely but you will always be behind each other for support when it’s needed. It’s unwavering trust and constant I love you’s being traded back and forth and every time, it’s truly meant.

Hey guys! So I’m currently in the writing phase of my EPQ and I thought I’d share with you guys some tips on how to reference source materials in your reports. 

You have to clearly indicate when you have used someone else’s work. For each type of source there are certain things you should note:

  • Books: Author’s name, title, year of puplication, place of publication, the page numbers of any quotes you use
  • Journal/Article: (As above, plus) title of the article, author of the article
  • Website: Author’s name (if stated), title (if stated), full website address, date the website was accessed

There are different ways that you can reference sources in your writing. I’m going to talk about the Harvard System of Referencing and Footnotes (because it would take me forever to go into them all and these two are perfectly fine)

Harvard System of Referencing

This type of referencing contains 2 elements; in-text citations and detailed references. 

  • In-text citations: Each time you discuss someone else’s work you should include the author’s name and the date their work was published within the text. 
  • Detailed references: The full details of the source should then be referenced in a bibliography at the end of your writing. This list of sources should be arranged alphabetically by the name of the author. 

For this form of referencing you can create citations within Microsoft Word:

From there you can select the type of source and fill in the full details, for example:

(Obviously you probably won’t be referencing Harry Potter but you get the idea)

Once you’ve finished all your writing, go back to the references tab, click bibliography, then inset bibliography and it does it automatically creates one from the sources you’ve entered… easy


Alternatively, you can include footnotes at the end of each page. A bibliography still needs to be included at the end of your work to list all your resources. 

To add footnotes in Microsoft Word click where you want to add the reference, then go to the references tab and click (you guessed it) Insert Footnote (or Alt+Ctrl+F):

You then have a number inserted in the text and at the bottom of the page. Next to the number at the bottom type in your reference. 

And there you go, your guide to referencing in your essays! Hope this helped someone  💕

It keeps bothering me that they decided to show that galra shield in Sendak’s ship to the audience through Keith, when they could very well have used Shiro or Allura, people we know has a past with the Galra empire, or even Sendak himself.

Okay, that sounded confusing, so let me try to elaborate. English is not my first language, so it will be a bit hard.

On the first episode, after Shiro and Pidge casually ditched Keith to his own luck on finding Red, we see him running around until he find himself in a… A…

He has two paths to go and doesn’t know which one to take.

You know, this

Now, the composition on this scene is interesting. You have the galra symbol hovering above Keith, who is right in the middle. It’s almost like it is pointing at him. 

Scratch that, the whole scene seems to be pointing at Keith in this one. No matter where you look, the lines take you back to our favorite Red Paladin. 

And then, this happens.

His whole body language changes when he sees it. He straightens his back, his arm falls to his side and I do wish I had HQ screencaps of this moment, but I don’t, so bear with my rushed kisscartoon misery.

And then he actually stares at it.

He stares at it for sometime, and only stops when he hears the galra soldier coming. His whole expression is… I don’t know how to put it. fucking language barriers, dude. If I were to name it anything, it’s almost of somewhat familiarity. 

As if he’s seen it before.

And then we see his expression changes yet again as he hears the soldier approaching and remembers why he’s there.

And not once the galra symbol leaves the screen in this brief moment. It’s always there, pointing at Keith, above Keith, on Keith’s visor…

Now, after three years hearing my teachers saying over and over again that nothing in animation is there just because, that everything was throughout planned to be there and be the way it is, I can’t help but wonder what were dreamworks and studio mir’s intentions with this one.

I mean, there’s the obvious one: to show the viewers one of the shields of the Galra Empire. To know that, whenever this symbol and others similar to this appear, it means that it’s related to the Galra in one way or another.

The thing is… Why do it through Keith, out of all the characters?

They could have done it earlier with Shiro’s flashback, as he remembered that he was in that ship before, at one point of his time as a slave from the galra empire. 

They could have done it with Sendak, since, you know, it’s his fucking ship.

They could have done it even with Allura, when Sendak first contacted the castle, and she could have recognized the symbol from the time Altea was being attacked.

But they made the deliberate choice to do it through Keith’s eyes.

They sat down in a room, discussed over this scene, made the storyboard, and decided that showing a Galra symbol through Keith, going even as far as keeping the reflection on his helmet’s visor when there were very few other times they used reflection to show anything in this show.

And here’s my guess on their not-so-obvious reason on to why they made this choice:

They want us to associate the galra with Keith, even if in the back of our minds.

The last time I saw a show giving this sort of hint was in the really fucking good anime Erased. In the op, for a very brief moment, you see the reflection of the killer in the shattered glass.

It’s not a really obvious reflection, for you still have a hard time associating the face with any named characters before the great and majestically composed reveal. And it lasts not even a second, so, unless you’re an obsessed theorist who lives in a shack in the desert and went through the op frame by frame, you barely notice it.

But is enough for you to make out a black suit, and now it’s imprinted in your mind that you cannot trust the man in the black suit.

SPOILER: And, as it turned out, the only character who used a black suit in a regular basis was the killer.

And just like in Erased they wanted you to associate black suit with the antagonist through the reflection, I feel like Voltron is trying to do something similar in here with Keith.

They aren’t straight out telling us, but they aren’t exactly keeping it from us. At a first glance, it’s just another in between scene before Keith gets to his lion.

But when you put it together with all the other slightly more obvious pieces of evidence…

… I dare to say it’s a quite brilliant hint.

TL;DR: Either Keith is a galra and they want us to associate one of the galra symbols directly to him as a hint, or I’m going completely crazy here.

Yes, the sun will rise each day, but the continuing rotation of the earth should not be your baseline expectation of American society. It is going to be too easy for things to start feeling normal, especially if you are someone who is not directly impacted by Trump’s actions. So keep reminding yourself this is NOT normal. Write it on a Post-It Note, and stick it on your refrigerator. Hire a skywriter once a month. Tattoo it on your ass. Because a Klan-backed misogynist internet troll is going to be delivering the next State of the Union address. And that is not normal, it is fucked up.

Hi, I was wondering if you had any headcanons for Abby and Neil? I mean everyone knows that boy needs good loving parental figures and as Wymack pretty much has 'team-dad' covered...

I’VE THOUGHT A LOT ABOUT THIS OK NEIL NEEDS A GENTLE MOTHERING SOUL (this entire thing is cheesy but I’m a sucker for that shit so here we go)

  • neil knows mothers as hard and punishing and tough love
  • he recognizes his mother’s brand of love because he grew up around her
  • he recognizes being beaten for a wrong move because he needs to be safe
  • he recognizes love as caring for him even if its harsh and cold
  • its why he doesnt need to be told “i love you” by andrew and why he doesnt need to say it back
  • he knows love as protection with angry words and fists
  • and later he knows love as andrews hand on his neck and a rough pat on the back after a game
  • he doesnt recognize love as soft words and gentle hands, so maybe thats why he doesnt recognize abbys actions towards him

It’s coming up pretty soon. The day that it happened. I know he stole a lot of things from you. A piece of your mind and your peace of mind. You were never one to take pity well, so I don’t pity the situation or how it has affected you. I’m simply someone that you’d call a friend, I’m simply someone who writes. So I’ve been writing. It’s right around the corner and I don’t want you to feel alone. It should not be a day that you’ll deal with directly. Remember the days when screaming into your pillow worked? Remember when showers were only ten minutes and not an hour long to scrub where he last touched you? It has become routine, a chore of sorts… I can’t get into your head and give you another “it’s going to be okay” because you know the truth. It’s fucking not going to be okay. I won’t lie to you. A part of you have died since that day. A part of you will always be trapped in those hours of calling for help. I can’t imagine the torment and self-hate you’ve delivered to your body. So before someone condemns you. It wasn’t how you were dressed. You did not ask for it. Those are words that men say to make women take responsibility. The truth is we’re all sick in one way or another. There’s no end to the cycle unless we begin to see the whole picture. I can tell you that it wasn’t your fault, but you won’t believe me. I can tell you that it’ll go away one day, but we both know it’s another lie. You’re going to be haunted by this. I know it’s not the same, but pain… is it not a common thing we all share? How do you deal with pain? Well, hurting yourself is definitely an option, but it’s not a healthy one. Cutting yourself open to find the truth is not the answer. We all wear the same skin, but never the same heart. Some people have beautiful smiles with a nasty soul. Some people only look like humans. The demon’s laughter will be there right before your eyes close. It’s coming up pretty soon. What’d you call it? An anniversary? Darling, that’s not an anniversary. That’s the day you died. Pain is different for everyone, but pain is pain. I have dealt with mine by means of poetry and reinvention of who I am. You can’t escape the monsters in your head, there’s nothing more dangerous than the person you’ve become. You have to go through hell to make it to heaven sometimes. You have to die to truly live sometimes. I know that it’s unfair. I know that it’s fucked up. I know that it’s too much to ask, but you want to know how else I’ve been managing? By meeting people like you. You give a sense of relief. You give guidance. You give love. You give careful thoughts. You give a mother’s touch. I’m not perfect and neither are you, but that’s the truth about us! We wear it like armor. We shine it onto our swords. We breathe it into our lungs. We press it into our knuckles. We kill our struggles every night, but sometimes it kills us instead. I can’t go on most nights, but there’s always room for improvement. You’ve been through some shit, but my god, you’re still here. Sad eyes, it’s okay to cry. It’s okay to feel. Karma, she will always make her rounds.

Take a Breath

Things are awful.

Things are awful and you feel like you’re going to drown.

Take a breath.

Take another breath.

Drink some water. Take your medicine, if you need to. Eat, if you need to. 

Take another breath.

Figure out what you can do to help. Not what someone else thinks you should do. What you can do. Do what you can. Donate money, if you have it. Donate time, if you have it. Donate energy, if you have it. Donate support if you have nothing else. Donate a kind word, a message of support. A smile. Tell people that they are worthy, that they are important, that they are loved. You are not bad for not having time or money or energy.

Then take a breath. 

Hold on to as much anger as gives you purpose, but not so much that you will burn from it. Do not drown yourself in your hatred. It will help nobody.

Take a breath.

And start again.

On Underage Smut

As a 18+ roleplayer, I should NOT have to consistently remind minors over and over and over again that absolutely under no circumstances will I roleplay smut and anything relating to smut with someone who’s underage. It’s illegal. You’re going to get me trouble with the fucking law. Just because you don’t care doesn’t mean I don’t, and I’m not going to go spend time in jail because you just had to write porn.

“But I had to lie about my age! No one will RP with minors anymore!” 

Well gee fucking willikers! I wonder why that’s a thing? You think it has something to do with the fact that minors don’t care about the well-being of their adult partners and jump through hoops to get in on that saucy, naughty fiction?

Bitch all you want, but there’s a reason 18+ rpers won’t write with minors much these days, and it has everything to do with smut. Now how do you fix this? Just wait the next few years out and, when you’re finally legal, you can start sending in NSFW prompts. But, until then, keep it to yourself.

God I just remembered the segment in the journal where Fiddleford tried to get Ford to publish his research before he thought it was ready and just…. I don’t even know if non-scientists even realize what a betrayal of trust that is. Like it’s one thing to propose that someone should start writhing up their work but??? To go behind their back and write it???? I just-

I mean fuck. It’s one hell of a slap in the face. It’s like you working on a project for years and years and YEARS and you are 100% sure that, if you can just get this ONE LAST experiment to work you can submit your work into Nature or Science and really really make a big difference in the scientific world

And then to have a coworker go “no. That’s not going to happen. Here is the manuscript. Just publish it in a lower journal it’s not going to matter.”

I just….this probably makes no sense to non-scientists whoops but it’s a…pretty big deal…
