hi! i'd wanna start watching star trek but i've never watched any before. so i was just wondering could you tell me where i should start bc there's so fuckin' many like both series and movies i'm a bit lost. thanks have a great day!
hey friend no problem!!! but my dude “both series” ?? BOTH?? my guy there are FIVE series (six, if you count the animated original series!!) so it’s even more complicated than you thought i’m so sorry lmao
but don’t worry, i will do my best to give you a good recommendation on how to start watching star trek! because star trek is literally the best thing in the galaxy and i will fight everyone who says otherwise, y’all can come to my house in the next 24 hours for an ass kicking
this is how the star trek series aired chronologically:
The Original Series 1966-1969 The Animated Series (starring the TOS cast) 1973-1974 The Next Generation 1987-1994 Deep Space Nine 1993-1999 Voyager 1995-2001 Enterprise 2001-2005
i feel like most people would probably recommend you watch all the series in the order that they aired (i haven’t watched much of the animated series myself, but i think most people consider it optional viewing tbh) since they happen chronologically in that order except for Enterprise, which is a prequel series that takes place right after humans make first contact with the Vulcans.
however, i personally didn’t watch star trek in that order. i actually watched The Next Generation first, and then went back and watched The Original Series, and then jumped to Deep Space Nine. maybe it’s just me, but i liked it doing it this way just because The Original Series is kind of … goofy, since it was filmed in the 60′s (like don’t get me wrong it’s GREAT all things considered but it can be hard to be invested in stuff that looks so dated, if that makes sense?) but after watching TNG first, i really enjoyed TOS.
Deep Space Nine is by far my favorite series, so i’m always tempted to tell people JUST WATCH DS9 ALREADY!!! but i do think at least watching The Next Generation first will give you a good understanding of how the star trek universe works (and will provide you with great contrast to prove that DS9 is the best star trek ever, fight me).
as for the movies, there are six Original Series movies, which all take place chronologically after the series ends, so whenever you finish TOS, you can comfortably enjoy the films. the same goes for the four TNG movies, all take place after the series.
now, me and the reboot films have a complicated relationship, especially with the first two; they’re very visually appealing, very action packed and stimulating, but they’re not exactly…star trek, i guess. i know JJ Abrams was trying to pull in an action movie crowd rather than a sci-fi crowd so he could make more $$ but as a result they kind of lost that special star trek-y feel that is so crucial to the heart of the universe. THAT SAID, i don’t think they’re supremely awful either, and if you want to dip your toe in the universe, the reboot movies aren’t a bad place to start – ESPECIALLY Star Trek Beyond, which is absolutely the best of the reboot films. actually, just go ahead and watch the first reboot film, skip into darkness cause it sucks, and go straight to star trek beyond.
Enterprise is the only series i haven’t seen so i can’t speak for it yet, but the others are all VERY GOOD and there are things about all of them that i like (and dislike, of course nothing is perfect) but what i love most about star trek is the fandom and the fans and there is always room for more.
Lmfao, they wanted a picture they never seen before of Freddie that briana hasn't posted... well there you go... thanks daisy! Anyways I just find it funny how larries think that reposting pictures is such a crime when I literally posted a collage picture of myself and my best friend for her birthday last night and 2/4 pics have already been in my IG account... that's because I really love those pics and I think we really look our best in it. Many people do it... it isn't unheard of..
actually it’s because u hate your friend angie and your friend’s birthday isn’t real. sorry to break the news :(
but seriously, isn’t it funny how fate works? larries ask for a new photo, they get one. if only they could get a new photo of louis and harry hanging out together? lmao
Tell me what you think of; redphonebooth3 cheshirepudding harryslovelylocks sillydreamstar 👅🙈
aahhhh hello muffin anon!!!
OK so I don’t think I’ve ever talked to @redphonebooth3 (hiiiiii! I’m sorry!!!) but I often see them on my dash and enjoy their posts quite a lot!!! They have so many interests and they seem just lovely <3 I’m sorry that I can’t say more omg But this could be the start of a beautiful friendship lmao *hsm song plays in the background*
@cheshirepuddin aaaaaahhhhhh oh my god literally one of my favourite people on here!!! So funny, lovely and bubbly and assjkhdj Sofia’s blog is literally heaven if you love Harry!!! Also, did you see the #ThemedWeekends? The best part of the weekend :P
and where do I even start with @harryslovelylocks ?? She’s my better half, the love of my life, she’s everything good in this world (and her blog is perfection!!!) How do you even describe the brightest star in the universe? The best thing in your life? The most colourful and soft flower? How can I possibly describe with simple words how incredible she is?? I will never be able to make her justice tbh I love her with everything I am.
And @sillydreamstar omg you are such a sweet, lovely, adorable cupcake! I love talking to you and I admire your strength a lot. You’re quite the artist, too. Hope to see more of your art (absolutely no pressure here, I’m just in love with it!) Also, the star emoji is now called sillystar ;)
What I think about their blog: Y’all need to listen to me, April is nothing but a vessel for pain. She loves to inflict it upon us poor innocent souls and she needs to be stopped. JK I love the pain she inflicts on me and I’ll admit, I do return the pain. She has the BEST tags and her blog is friggin ace. I talk to this woman almost everyday and she is the kindest, sweetest, most understanding and accepting person I’ve met. I highly encourage you to talk to her, because she makes this fandom even better to be in. :)
Could u do some hcs for Jotaro, Avdol, Kakyoin, nd Pol with an s/o with paranoia? Im sorry if this makes you uncomfortable a a a a
This doesn’t make me feel uncomfortable at all!! I personally suffer from paranoia,, among other things :’) I’m mentally a mess lmao,
~ Avdol: Definitely understands the feelings his s/o are having. Though he may not personally suffer from paranoid thoughts or feelings, he’ll definitely try his best to lessen those feelings, and reassure his s/o that whatever the thought or feeling is about, it probably isn’t there and that they’re perfectly safe.
~ Polnareff: Doesn’t really understand very much about the paranoid feelings of his s/o. He’s kind of confused about how they feel things that aren’t there, or happening, or how they think certain ways, but even though he doesn’t get it, he’s still going to try to make his s/o comfortable the best he can.
~ Kakyoin: Even if he can’t help very much, Kakyoin would definitely lend his s/o an ear, so they can talk to him about the paranoia. He’ll try to reassure them that they’ll be just fine, and that he’ll always be there for them, and that if it gets too bad they could always look for options to alleviate it.
~ Jotaro: Jotaro has sort of an understanding about his s/o’s paranoia. He’s not sure how exactly to help them deal with it, so he usually just listens to them, and he may tell them to just brush it off (which usually results in hurt feelings, because you really can’t just ‘brush it off’).
this is probably a dumb question but how do you resize your screenshots from the sims 4 in photoshop? when i click resize image, change the size of the screenshot & save it, it still shows up as the same size i started with. it could be the type of file i'm setting it to but idk. sorry if this is confusing lmao
Honestly, I may not be the best person to ask, because I’ve only just started resizing all my in-game screenshots, but I’m happy to show you what I do! 🙂
So I am using photoshop Photoshop CC (2017.0.1) and all my photo files are .png. The first thing I do is click Image > Image Size… This window should pop up:
Make sure the “chain and link” icon (in the pink circle) is ON. If it is on, it will look like it does in the image above. If it is off, the two thin grey lines connecting the words “width” and “height” will not be there. This makes it so the image maintains its relative scale.
Next, use the drop down menus (here, they are circled in purple) and selected “pixels” This will measure your image by pixels per square inch. The width and height should change to 1440x900. This is the size of all sims 4 screenshots. Now, we resize so that it’s more compatible with tumblr.
Select “width” and manually change it from 1440 to 800. The height should automatically change to 500 (underlined in green). You will see the image in the preview window has changed, because your image is now significantly smaller. 800x500 is a much better image size, so go ahead and click “OK”.
That’s it! Your image should be resized. Let me know if you have any more questions. If anyone knows any better methods for resizing photos, please let us know! Otherwise, good luck anon! I hope this helped.
BLACK LEATHER JACKET: what is a fashion trend that others hate but you secretly enjoy?
do you??? expect me have an answer to this??? i don’t keep up with fashion sorry lmao.
i still like big baggy jeans though, fight me.
BLACK OLIVE: if you could own a restaurant, what kind would it be?
a bakery/brunch!! that’s the sort of restaurant i like best anyway. sit-down places seem like such a hassle, and fast-food places get a bad rap! plus, pastries and bread, bakeries are the best places on earth.
i think a french-style one especially, but i haven’t had like, any actual french or even french-style food, so i can’t vouch!! that italian place in your town was BOMB though. i really want to go back!
CHARCOAL: if you could have something named after you as a memorial what would you choose? (building, park, school, etc.)
A COMET. go big or go home, right?? i’d have to discover one first, though, which. would be Very Hard. (fun fact: comets can only be named after the person who discovered it, and meteors or whatever can only be named after another person! i think that’s the way it works, at least. maybe it’s reversed. in that case, a meteor.)
if i have to pick something more down-to-earth… i’d probably just like a bench or something, tbh! i know on the boardwalk along the chesapeake bay in maryland they have a bunch of them, and in fact there was a bench labeled ‘fred and daphne’. i don’t remember their last names, but mom and i got a kick out of it everytime we saw it.
i’ve always thought the little benches or stones or whatever dedicated to family members and donators were neat. they have their own sense of… life, i guess, i can’t think of the word. but if anything, i think i’d like a lonely little bench out by the bay with waves beating the rocks beneath it dedicated to me. maybe someone’d come along and wonder who that person was and what on earth they did to get their name stuck on an old seawater-rusted bronze plaque in the middle of nowhere.
It's 8:01 PM. I had plans to hang out with a guy friend, which were stopped because of an impending snow storm... Then after that my crush asked me if we could hang out today and that his mom could pick me up, but my mom said "how are you going to get home" and he said that his mom would do her best to drive me back but if worse came to worse I could sleep over there- Im just confused as heck and really upset that I couldnt go because he literally was saying to sleep over!! And I really miss him
wowza thats an intense day lmao but srsly thats so annoying that you couldn’t hang out with either of them ????? dang im sorry bub,, i hope u get to chill with them soon !!
Everything was so clear then. We were waging the grand campaign, good versus evil. These days, black and white just dissolve into grayscale. I was wrong. I suppose everyone feels that he’s the hero in his own story, but there are no heroes, no villains, just people doing the best they can. I’m sorry. For everything. My only justification is I did the best I could. | SNAFU
“I’ll be the best goddamn class captain, vote for me”
Seungkwan is that one student who’s always talking back to the teacher
But somehow doesn’t get sent to the office or get detention
Sk the one that gets elected as class leader/school council/school captain
Because he’s funny
And like “rapped” his speech
Seungkwan class clown
THE ONE THAT DOESNT DO HIS HW AND GOES AROUND ADKIBG PEOPLE IF HE COULD COPY LMAO
THE ONE WHO MAKES SPORTS CLASS FUN
liKE DODGE BALL??
GETS HIS TEAM TOGETHER AND MAKES UP A CODE WORD
IA’s anecdote :
We were playing dodge ball and our team got together and had this huddle yeah
And our captain made up the code word pickles
So when our captain screamed out pickles
We would get on the floor
And start rolling
Like a pickle
I mean it was dumb and confused the other team and did absolutely nothing but
No joke we fucking won the game
SeuNGKWAN IS THE CAPTAIN THAT MAKES UP PICKLES
SEUNGKWAN DOESNT HAVE A DESIGNATED SEAT OR GROUP HE SITS WITH
LIKE YOU KNOW HOW YOU GET TO YOUR TABLE AND SIT WITH YOUR FRIENDS
unless you have like rows
We sit in groups of 4-6
Maybe 8 if we moved the tables around lol
So we sit with friends
No behind or in front of people in rows
Anyways seungkwan just hovers
Like sure he has his friends to sit with at lunch
But during class it’s like
“Hmmm can I sit with you guys today?“
And they’re like
"Hey Bobby!! What’s up?” He says as he joins the table placing his books down. No one was complaining mind you.
Everyone loves seungkwan
Like he meshes with all year levels
The older year levels are like
“YEAH YEAH SEUNGKWAN WHATS UPPP”
And the younger year levels are like
“!!! Hey seungkwan!!”
And he’s like
“HI KIDSSSSSSSSS ARE YOU DOING WELL IN YOUR CLASSES?"
OH SHIT THE KID THAT VOLUNTEERS TO SHOW THE NEW KID AROUND
Wakes up sleeping students with ”AYO LADIESSSS THIS IS YUR STORYYYYYYYYY“
Walks into class with ”aYO LADIESSSSSS THIS IS YUR STORYYYY“
story time because everyone likes story time
you’re the new kid #surprise
and you walk into class like no biggie sit down anywhere or just sit down because you’re in pods and you’re like
Hi I’m new can I sit here and they’re like sure fam
And a pod is basically a friendship group right
so BAM sid down in particular pod that’s your friendship group for lYFE
Unless you decide to move
then forget what i said
So it’s a new dawn a new day a new a fucking school hola
and you’re lost like what do you do
and you’re relying on your pod to help you
and you’re like yeah cool hi I’m Y/N and damn aren’t narwhals cool
and class captain walks in
the class returns his call with:
“t h IS IS YUR STORYYYYY”
and you’re like what the actual fuck guys pls explain
and as you just look at the source of the ayo ladies in your frantic confusion
FOR A SPLIT SECOND
A MILLISECOND EVEN
EYES LOCKED AND THERE WAS A BLOOD SHINE LIKE THE ONES IN THE ANIMES
HIS EYES WIDEN
LIKE BIGGER THAN BEFORE
and you just know that what ever you’re getting into is gonna be a motherf*ck!ng roller coaster
ok but Seungkwan is racking his mind for that split millisecond and because this kid knows everyone right
buggers like rushing up to you
bangs his bloody hands on your table
and is like you’re new
and you’re like ?????? still in frantic confusion
“Hey pod mind if I sit with you today?”
“Go ahead class cap”
Like ok home room starts and home room is usually like 20 mins yeah
so teacher does role call and class captain pulls up his pants on his cap
“alRIGHT KIDS WE GOT A NEW KID IN CLASS”
teacher: “oh yeah new kid name is —”
“HER NAME IS Y/N”
class: “Hi Y/N”
like whoa you suddenly feel like you’re in a help group yknow like the ones in the movie
and you just awkwardly you just wave to people like hi classmates hello maybe try to hide behind your hair
And Seungkwan is juST BOOMING
“EVERYONE GRAB A CHAIR CIRCLE TIME INTRODUCE YOURSELVES”
so it’s circle time and everything is just moving so quickly and wow
with everyone in your class right now
in 20 minutes, less even
you now know each of your classmates and they know you
and they didn’t act like
you got the foundation to make friends and you’re like whoa hold up how it’s beEN TWENTY MINUTES
it’s first period
and you’re walking out of class with your books to your first class and class captain has himself attached to your hip
he, as your class captain, has taken the chance to formally announce himself as your guide for the week because you’re new anD HE MAKES AN EFFORT TO KNOW EVERYONE
but ok problem is
he’s actually attached to your hIP BONE LIKE HE’S NOT BUDGING
people think he’s hooked up with you
which is like what
no can’t be no
because like Seungkwan is everyone’s friend and the idea of Seungkwan being a “boyfriend”never crossed anyone’s mind
But he’s all over you
Arm over shoulder, hand holding, back hugs etc etc
but he does it subconsciously and you really pay no mind to it because just by looking at his bloody face you’re like yeah he’s everyone’s cuddly best friend
and he’s got the majority of his classes with you
like same homeroom, core classes same people yadda
and through these classes you realise that Seungkwan isn’t just a really good leader and captain
but he’s actually reALLY FUCKING FUNNY
THE AMOUNT OF TIMES THAT HE’S ALMOST BOUGHT YOU TO TEARS
AND HAD THE CLASS HOLLERING
and this continues for the week
second week, you know your way you don’t need Seungkwan leading you anymore all cool
but the school’s like waiiiiiiiitttt hold up pause
whY AREN’T THEY TOGETHER ANYMORE BA C K U P
Seungkwan is bombarded with questions
“yOU BROKE UP WITH HER ALREADY????”
thE WHOLE SCHOOL IS NOW IN FRANTIC CONFUSION WHY DID IT LAST A WEEK I MEAN SEUNGKWAN COULD HAVE ACTUALLY BEEN A GOOD BOYFRIENDW A I T
and people start comforting you like
“shhhhh it’s okay, he’s lame anyways you don’t need him”
and you’re like I mean yeah I know where the library is now but wtf are you on??
but they think you’re heartbroken
and Seungkwan is suddenly seen as a player because your “relationship” lasted a week
“Mate you’re a good kid you shouldn’t have led her on like that”
and he’s like ????? who
“WHAT DO YOU MEAN WHO WHEN WERE YOU SO HEARTLESS??”
“WHAT ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT SEUNGCHEOL”
“THAT GIRL THAT WAS TAILING YOU AND YOU WERE ALL CUDDLY WITH THE ENTIRETY OF LAST WEEK”
“Y/N??? SHE’S NEW I WAS BEING NICE AND SHOWING HER AROUND WE WEREN’T DATING”
EVEN THE TEACHERS CONFRONT HIM
“Seungkwan, we’ve recently heard about a certain rumour about a very short relationship between you and Y/N.. As a school leader, Seungkwan, we are very disappointed in you and thought you were better than this. We advise you not to do a similar stunt or else your captaincy may be taken away”
“iT wAs A mIsUnDeRsTaNdInG”
You two accidentally spot each other from across the cafeteria
Both of you are like looking at each other in agony
Boy gets up, walks over to you anD DRAGS YOU OUT OF THE GYM
THE WHOLE ROOM IS NOW HOLLERING
Lots of screaming and whispering and ‘woo’ing
“What do we do Y/N”
“Let’s just hang out again??? Maybe they wont think we dated or broke up???”
“Sounds like a plan.” but he’s sorta happy because you’re fun to be around
You guys walk back in with his arm around your shoulder
CH A O S ENSUES
“dON’T GO BACK TO HIM, YOURE BETTER THAN THIS Y/N”
