Has anyone requested the assassin trio yet?

I can see him as being asexual as well as being a demi guy!
I think he would have some form of PTSD due to his awful childhood and that he would also have generalised anxiety due to the stress of his current job. I think he would also have violent intrusive thoughts because of his upbringing too.
Random headcanons:
- he has a big soft spot for animals, especially small ones like hamsters or guinea pigs!
- he can sew and knit and likes fixing and mending his clothes and others’ clothes in the evening to relax but still be productive
- because of his past he didn’t get much time to sample different foods so he tends to pile his plate up at dinners but only manages to eat half of it

I think he would be pansexual and a demi guy!
I headcanon him as being autistic (maybe asperger’s?) as well as having problems relating to PTSD and paranoia which affect his everyday life quite a lot. I see him as having a very low self esteem too.
Random headcanons:
- he cant cook or bake to save his life but he tries!! He wants to be self-reliant but tends to burn every meal he cooks.
- hes very sensitive to certain tastes or smells and ones that he doesnt like will nearly make him sick
- he fidgets a lot with his hands or anything he can find, and really likes ripping paper and folding it into little balls. He does this subconsciously and it really annoys people when he’s in a meeting.

I see him as being one of the few cis straight people in the series to be honest!
I headcanon him as being autistic too and having very very selective mutism due to his past. Very often he’ll communicate to people who he doesn’t speak to or who understand him through sign language.
Random headcanons:
- I’ve said this before and ill say it again: he’s a major cat person! He likes how theyre very relaxed pets and will show affection on their own terms.
- he secretly likes reading romance novels because he thinks they’re really cute!
- his handwriting is super neat and even a little curly!

I'd love to hear your thoughts on La La Land's ending! If you don't mind.

SO HERE WE GO. I’ve heard a lot of think pieces/complaining about how the movie is about hollywood, or white men saving jazz, or unrealistically fulfilling your dreams all at once, etc., but I don’t see how you can watch that ending and come away with those things. Sure, the movie dabbles in all of that, and you can make commentary on how unrealistic that is, or in the case of John Legend’s role in the movie, how shitty it is—but then, there’s that ending. That glorious, perfect pitched ending.

The last we see of Mia and Sebastian together, they’re making a choice many of us have or will make in our lives; a turning point in a relationship, where you have to choose what you’re willing to sacrifice, or give to keep the love that you have. They make what I would say, as a person who has made this very choice, the right choice, and seperate for the good of their careers. And realistically, painfully so, that is a lasting break—we jump five years, and things have happened that make their separation permanent (Mia is married, she has a child). That’s startling and, because it happens so quickly instead of the slow and quiet way that it occurs in real life, unbelievable. We think, they’re playing a trick on us, this can’t possibly be where this movie of sparkling lights and love songs is going to end. But the longer the scene goes on, and we see Mia in the car with her husband, so comfortable, it starts to set in, and then, even though we know it’s coming, when she sees the sign at his club—the sign she made for him—we feel the way she does. It’s been five years for her, and she has that space that we, as an audience, were not given from the main storyline, so she’s surprised, and suddenly longing, and that’s an emotion we can feel. 

But the ending isn’t about where Mia finds herself, it’s about Sebastian. He plays his song, and the fantasy begins for him and we get to go along with it. Mia may have moved on, but Sebastian is closer to us, he still feels that sting when he sees her, much worse then she felt. The cinematography here is beautiful, and the music carries us through it, and it’s satisfying, just to retrace the steps of where we have already been with these characters, to hear the same cords they sang together. You can’t tell me it didn’t hit you when, in the bar, the music swelled and he walked right up to kiss her. 

Because this is from Sebastian’s point of view, we see the way he wished it had been, how they could have stayed together, and it is so firmly planted in what he could have done differently. Mia still takes the audition, gets the job, goes to Paris, but he never takes that job with the band, he’s there at her show, he goes to Paris with her. His fantasy includes being there for her, in a way that he never really was during their relationship. He puts her, her dreams and ambitions, first, so that in the end, Mia ends up exactly where she is now, where she’s meant to be, but she’s married to him instead. And even while he’s thinking of it, the unreality of that situation bleeds in—through the film set, the Van Gogh-esque swirls of Paris. It could never have been real, because he was a different man then, he would have always made those choices. He had yet to learn his lesson.

In the end, they are able to smile at each other and part again, because this isn’t a love story. This is a story about growing up. It’s a story about how a person can mean so much to you during one point in your life, how they can change you, can take up all of the space in your world completely, and how much you can love them in that moment—and how beautiful that is. It isn’t lasting, it’s not guaranteed, it’s something you may regret and dwell on over and over later, but it is beautiful. Sebastian’s dream looks so unreal because not only did it not happen, it couldn’t have happened; there were a gulf of reasons why the two of them never would have worked out, even if he had gone with her to Paris. 

But they changed each other. They nudged each other towards their futures. They were each other’s turning point, towards success, their dreams, all the things that felt out of reach when they met. So when they said, before they parted, I will always love you, what they really meant was; I will always love what you have given me.

anonymous asked:

Hi!! I love your blog! can you list some of your favorite dramione fics? Thank you!

hell yeah I can, dramione is my shit. friends come and go, but dramione is forever :’)

just a reminder that you can find some more dhr recs on my fic recs page. I’m really behind in updating it, though, so there are a few that are missing. (all of the fics I’m listing below are completed)

ok I’m gonna assume you’ve read the fallout and isolation before, but if you haven’t, check these two fics out first!! they are great for dramione skeptics and beginners

(btw most of these are hogwarts fics because I’m super into the whole sneaking around dark corridors, making out in abandoned classrooms thing)

hogwarts fics

  • what the room requires by alydia rackham: 6th year, Hermione is the one to find Draco in the bathroom, they get trapped in the RoR together
  • clean & marked by olivieblake: two of my faves, clean takes place in 6th year, and marked takes place during the war, there are so many plot twists in this series, it’s amazing, beautifully written, i love it
  • difficult by provocative-envy: one of my favorite fic writers ever, she is so so so talented, this is a basic hogwarts fic, I think it takes place 6th year but I don’t really remember but I do that remember I liked this
  • silencio by akashathekitty: so much drama in this one! 6th year (haha do you see a trend?) personally their relationship moved way to fast for me, but this is still really good
  • beautiful things can come from the dark by yesterdayschild4: despite the rape themes (it’s not D who rapes H), this fic is obnoxiously fluffy and I loved it
  • forget me by emara88: this fic is so underrated! hermione passes out at a ministry party in 2001, and while in a coma, she discovers her hidden past at hogwarts
  • delilah’s black book of poems by dark whisper: ONE OF MY FAVES!!! forbidden romance in this is so heart-wrenching!!! and “If you were mine” is one of the most iconic moments I have ever read
  • live again by sophie733: why is this not more popular?? basically everyone dies in the war, and D&H go back in time to fix it
  • presque toujours pur by shayalonnie: hermione is revealed to be pureblood, which changes basically everything, this fic is so interesting, though, post war hogwarts
  • finders by everythursday: hermione and draco have to work together to solve a mystery at hogwarts, this is heavy on the plot and the romance is more of a background story, post war hogwarts
  • virtus et ludicium by anjalimalfoy: to be honest, I don’t remember what this is about, but based on my abundance of highlighting in my books app, I must have liked it..? seventh year dramione
  • suppressed emotions by hoplesslydevoted.xx: someone is after hermione, and draco is given the task of protecting her. this fic is amazing, I loved how their relationship is so slow burn
  • and we all fall down by rumaan: this is sooo good. draco malfoy comes back to hogwarts halfway through the year after a stint in azkaban.

war fics

  • cruel & beautiful world by lena phoria: the writer recently published this story into a book (yayy), but I have an .epub saved if anyone wants me to email it to them, voldy!wins AU
  • turncoat by elizaye: if you’re looking for a fic similar to the fallout, this is it. draco switches sides and hermione is his confidant
  • we learned the sea by luckei1: this fic is amazing, it’s one of my faves. draco, harry, and hermione team up to take down lord voldemort
  • ugh I’m sorry, I wish I had more :/

post-war fics

  • broken by inadaze22: amazing, amazing, amazing. no one has seen hermione for years, when she returns to the wizarding society with no friends, she develops a close relationship with the slytherin squad
  • hunted by bex-chan: written by the genius of isolation, draco and hermione are forced to work together when their ex-classmates start dying
  • when the bell tolls by everythursday: four years after the war, there is a sudden rise in Dark Magic, and hermione needs azkaban prisoner draco to help stop it
  • lady of the lake by colubrina: a rare fic where hermione is more of the bad guy. hermione and draco overthrow the order and take over the ministry
  • parade of the sun by everythursday: hermione is researching a plant that has the power to change time, and draco wants to use it 
  • again, I apologize for not having more in this category

also maybe check out my own fic? (error in expectations) it’s WIP, and it takes place during what was supposed to be the golden trio’s 7th year

constantly-disheveled  asked:

Okay top ten most recommended books (aside from your own :p witches better have those already!!) For witches of any level of experience!

Well, the only books that I can 100% recommend are my own, because I can vouch for all the content, see? (For anyone interested, the rundown is here.) But the following are the books from my personal library that I’ve found most useful over the years. (These are in no particular order.)

  • Encyclopedia of Magical Herbs (Cunningham) - THE book on magical plant correspondences. Wicca-flavored and slightly antiquated (published in the 1980s), but still relevant and very well-researched. The Works Cited and Recommended Reading pages are worth a look all on their own.
  • The Complete Guide to Herbal Medicines (Fetrow & Avila) - If you’re going to work with plants in your craft, you NEED to have a practical reference book. This one is the best I’ve found so far. It’s well-organized, easy to use, and reads like a physician’s desk reference. Which, in a practical medical herb book, is what you want.
  • Encyclopedia of 5,000 Spells (Illes) - Affectionately dubbed “The Big Guns” in my personal lexicon. Some problematic material (largely pulling from vodou and hoodoo as if all their practices are universal), but an excellent resource for learning about various magical methods from a wider range of cultures and countries than most books contain. Helpfully alphabetized by subject, but I still recommend using index tabs for quick reference.
  • Grimoire for the Green Witch (Moura) - The “Other Guns.” An excellent reference for correspondences and basic spellwriting components. Not really organized, and there’s no table of contents or index, so DEFINITELY use index tabs for this one. It’s not as comprehensive as Llewellyn’s big book on correspondences, but the smaller size makes it a little less daunting to leaf through.
  • The Real Witches’ Garden (West) - One of my very first books on green witchcraft, and one I still refer to. Includes practical information as well as magical correspondences.
  • The Real Witches’ Book of Spells and Rituals (West) - Like Illes’ “Big Guns,” a good reference for various kinds of spells at a basic-to-intermediate level. This is the spellbook on which I cut my witchy teeth back in the day.
  • Spell Crafts (Cunningham & Harrington) - For any witch who wants to make charms or trinkets as part of their practice, or has a crafty artistic side. Lots of basic tutorials that can be adapted to future projects.
  • The Black Toad (Gary) - A fascinating look at the classical components of English witchcraft traditions. Details the hows and whys behind many charms that we find in frequent use today (i.e. witch bottles).
  • Cottage Witchery (Dugan) - A short, simple primer for magics that can be done around the home. Wicca-flavored and focused on traditional methods, with a charming conversational style that influenced my own writing later on.
  • Utterly Wicked (Morrison) - The first book I ever read that presented baneful magic in a practical fashion. Emphasizes personal responsibility and introduces some interesting modern techniques for using everyday items in curses.

Keep in mind that NONE of these books are perfect, and critical reading is required for everything. But if I had to put together a stack of ten books from my collection that I absolutely cannot do without, the first ones I’d replace if lost, these would be the ones. :)

vel im so sorry to be asking this but i just dont know what to do you are so good at drawing and youre only 17 and im 16 and yet i feel stuck drawing the same shittty sketch over and over and i just want to know how you got so good at drawing people environments clothing anatomy e ver y th in g again im so sorry to ask this and i really dont mean any harm but its frustrating to see someone who is basically your age draw so much better

Hmmm, well you’re only 16, you know? I know people say this a lot- but you’re still very young, and it’s never too late to improve! People can still do amazing things as they get older. I also say this over and over- even if others seem to have “natural talent” practice as much as you can and you can put yourselves at their level, too. If you feel like your sketches are shitty, that means you are seeing the problems in your art and you are beginning to improve!

The way I got good at drawing environments and anatomy was observing things closely in real life, artbooks, and my favorite artists. This is VERY important. You can even try emulating other artstyles and reference as practice. One thing I would constantly do it color pick or eyedrop pictures I take to figure out how colors work with the atmosphere around them in different setting. REFERENCING IS KEY to success. It’s very easy to get frustrated, but please remember that age is not the determinant factor in success, and you can definitely get to where you want to be if you push yourself REASONABLY. The artist world is very competitive among people our age online (and I also know this from being in an art school) but let it be ONLY a factor in making you try harder. Best of luck to you, and any of you guys are free to message me for tips that I use to help myself improve! 

anonymous asked:

Can you say some benefits of traveling alone? I'm thinking of doing it in August but I've never have and I'm a bit worried of the dangers of a girl on her own

Please don’t let the fact that you don’t have anyone to travel with stop you from going. I promise you’ll be ok. Here are some safety tips that I have gathered over the years.

1. Research your destination. 
You have to find it in you to really research, study and find the ins and outs of where you’re going. Read other travelers blogs, lonely planet books, online, and recent news articles about the place you’re going. Stay updated on events. Reach out to people who have traveled there for a few extra tips. Know where you want to go and know where you shouldn’t go. Book your hostel for the first few nights to give yourself some time to talk to the receptionist, locals, or roommates to get some details about the places you are visiting, updates on events happening and pointers about the country you’re in.

2. Be prepared.
Photocopy all important documents before your departure. This means passports, birth certificates, credit cards, license, plane tickets, visa, and required vaccines. It is also a good idea to have a written list of your friends or family members cellphone numbers just in case. Store these in a separate area than your actual documents to protect yourself in case your bag is stolen or an airline lost your luggage. Keep out some extra cash and hide it in socks, under a hat, bra, in a tampon wrapper, etc. Don’t think that you are prone from these things happening to you because you’re not. Theft and lost luggage happens to everyone and it is better in the long run to just be prepared for it.

3. Hostels
Be aware at all times. As much as you want to trust the next traveler, don’t. Remember the faces of the people that you’re sharing a room with. Keep your valuables close to you or secured away in a locker at all times. Always travel with a lock. No matter where you are or who you are items get stolen. If for some reason you are concerned about your roommates or your safety, ask the receptionist to switch rooms or upgrade to a private room.

4. Exploring
As you walk down the streets looking through the shops, walk with confidence and always be aware of what’s around you. Don’t ever announce that you’re alone. In conversation, don’t be afraid to say that you’re going to meet up with your boyfriend or that he’s back at the hostel. Be careful about sharing information like where you’re from, where you’re going, where you’re staying, how long your trip is and any personal information. And last but not least, try to blend in. Dress appropriately for where you’re going, don’t pull out all your valuables in public, don’t look lost and vulnerable because you may just become a target to a criminal. Look confident, head up, shoulders back, look determined and like you know exactly where you’re going. If you do become lost, slip into a cafe, restaurant or bathroom to pull out a map before you keep going.

-Link up with other solo travelers. There’s so many of them around and it’s fun to get a group of people together and go on new adventures. You’ll remember these moments for the rest of your life. 
-Don’t go out exploring at night by yourself. Or go out and get blind drunk.
-Carry pepper spray if it’ll make you feel more safe.
-If you’re ever lost or it’s late at night and feel unsafe, take a taxi home. 
-Check in regularly with friends or family members whenever you can. It’s a good idea to let someone back home know your itinerary. 
-Watch out for staged mishaps such as someone bumping into you or dropping something. It’s often just a way to get you distracted. If it would make you feel better, you can carry a ‘dummy wallet’. 
-Know the number of the police where you are and always know where the closest hospital/doctor is.
-Don’t hitchhike, couch surf or share taxis with strangers. No, they are not always cereal killers or rapists but it’s always better to not take the chance.
-Use ATMS during the day when it’s light out and there are people around.
-Keep the expensive jewelry and clothes at home. You don’t need them where you’re going.
-Don’t be scared to ask for help. Don’t be scared to put up a fight or draw attention to yourself if someone is harassing or following you. 
-If you’re going somewhere that doesn’t speak english at all, carry a book that’ll help you translate.
-Read the reviews of the hotel or hostel that you’re staying at.
-And don’t ever feel guilty about saying no. Your safety is always number 1 while embarking on a solo adventure but I’m not here to scare you into being completely closed off. You’re entering a new country and a new culture for a reason and that reason isn’t to sit in your hostel room thinking everyone is a bad person or something bad will always happen to you. You’re there to see the beauty of a new country, meet new people, and try new foods.

So please, just go. Go because you will meet people as you travel that can continue on to be life-long friendships. You will never truly be alone if you open yourself up. The world is a big place and there is beauty, heart-breaking beauty everywhere and something inside of you changes once you see it.

Yoooo, because I always wanted to see more of him in the books, what are your head canons on Charlie Weasley??

huh, let’s see

  • him and hagrid were the best buds during charlie’s hogwarts years, charlie probably used to hang out at hagrid’s hut quite often, just like the golden trio years later after him
  • percy calls him “an outdoor type” at some point in the books which gave me a mental image of charlie barely spending any time at home and instead exploring the wilds surrounding their village, looking for all kind of creatures, magical and not, keeping a little journal of his researches, interesting herbs and flowers pressed between the pages, doodles scattered across the notes
  • not perfectly fluent in romanian, but still can speak it
  • like twice a month gets owls from oliver wood who keeps begging him to ditch his sodding dragons and join professional quidditch (wood’s team, obviously)
  • he was in the same year as tonks at hogwarts, so naturally i imagine them being friends during their school years; tonks was probably the first one to join him in any secret shenanigans (like sneaking into the forbidden forest when charlie became obsessed with an idea to confirm rumours about an acromantula colony being established there. they were shortly caught by hagrid though)
  • i really like the idea of him and harry hanging out together, maybe it’s because they’re both among my favs and i always want my favourite characters to hang out with each other. anyway, there’s this one scenario i enjoy, where harry sets off to travel for a bit after the war to take a break from everything and to see what wizarding communities in other countries are like. at that point of his travels where he starts to miss familiar faces, he visits charlie. they get to know each other better, bond over their fascination for dragons and quidditch and after a while charlie becomes the third closest weasley to him (after ron and ginny, obviously) 
  • i also wonder if the place in romania where he went to study dragons is something like an alma mater for draconologists from all over the world. like, if you want to study dragons, that’s where you go. if so, then i like to imagine it’s a very interesting multinational and multilingual community there

Hello!! Do you know of fics where any of the boys, preferably Harry/Louis of course, consider themselves straight until they meet the other? Thanks in advance!!!

 I’m so sorry this took so long to answer! Here you go:


Baby Heaven’s In Your Eyes by theboyfriendstagram [ 24/24 | English | 120,925 ] *

Or a sixth form!AU where Harry is the fucked up bad boy with too many problems, Louis is the perfect rich boy with too much money and their schools are right across from each other. They meet at a party and that’s the last (and maybe the only) thing they need.

Just A Flower Boy by larryruinedme [ 15/15 | English | 70,087 ] *

Harry Styles is a clumsy, flower crown-wearing, openly gay junior with only two true friends, Niall and Zayn. Louis Tomlinson is the school’s attractive, straight football captain, with a small body and a big personality. As fate will have it, Harry has a huge, unrequited, utterly hopeless crush on Louis.

Fumbling In The Dark by Grand Buzz [ 1/1 | English | 21,599 ]

Louis is straight, Harry is not. They still shag a lot.

Dangerous Liaisons by IWillSingWithYou [ 17/17 | English | 42,601 ]

Niall is the master of deceit and Harry is the master of seduction. Louis is just a very strong willed male model who happens to be straight. When Niall tells Harry he wouldn’t be able to seduce Louis, the bet is on, but Niall’s schemes are hard to avoid.


Falling In Love by Centa0592 [ 16/16 | English | 111,613 ]

The Boss/Employee AU where Harry thinks he’s straight, since he has a gf, but, after meeting Louis, soon discovers that sexuality means nothing when love is involved.

The Frying Pan And The Fire by embryo [ 22/22 | English | 22,209 ]

Harry is a former child star who now works at a bar. Louis is an indie artist who wants Harry to be in his new music video. Harry is a grump and Louis is too chipper. Harry is straight and Louis is openly gay. Louis is determined and persistent and at some point Harry stops denying himself.

Both Showing Hearts by kiwikero [ 11/11 | English | 113,570 ]

Louis Tomlinson is, in fact, not straight. Harry Styles isn’t sure what he is. Together, they figure it out, and maybe fall in love along the way. Or, the Uni AU where Louis helps Harry figure out his sexuality, Niall crashes a bachelorette party, Liam works in a printing centre, and Zayn happens to need lots of printing done.

All the pics marked with an * are ones I have read. I hope these are what you were looking for :)

anonymous asked:

What do you think about the time where Touka suggest that Kaneki's life would be better without her in it? And compared to now where she seems to be waiting for something.

Well, she wasn’t saying that exactly; she was just saying that Kaneki would be better off in the Human World rather than the Ghoul one, and she felt the need to distance herself from him because she considers herself part of that Ghoul World (which is exactly, as it happens, how Kaneki felt in the second half of the first manga). Kaneki himself believed that to be the truth, but he was lying to himself.

The notorious lying chin-touch. Truth was that Haise could never suppress the existence of his Ghoul self in his mind, and so long as he kept on uselessly fighting it he could never be truly happy. Like the legendary king Damocles, his happy lifestyle was constantly undermined by the sword hanging by a single horse hair over his head at all times. He is a Half-Ghoul, and he can never find peace of mind without accepting both sides of himself. So both Touka and Haise were mistaken - Kaneki’s life needs to encompass both worlds, and Touka must definitely be in it. Even when he was trying to shut off his past, it was Touka who made him first want to remember it - an angelic face compared to the demonic one of the Ghoul in his head.

Also, now that we’ve seen Kaneki’s secret motivation (which was far healthier than I was expecting, way to go Ken!) it’s pretty clear that Kaneki’s current goal in life requires Touka’s presence.

As for what Touka’s waiting for, she’s waiting for the same thing we are! The Touken talk she was promised 15 chapters ago! But she’s got lots to do in the meantime wiping up the emotional mess from the Kureo Mado arc that has been festering for two whole mangas.

Still…soon, Ishida? Pretty please?
