The social media world is heavily populated by trolls — you know, those people who write nasty, mean comments online. Sometimes it can be tempting to respond back, but what if there’s a better alternative? Like sending them a cake…. with their words written on it.

New York City baker Kat Thek does just that. She’s the founder of Troll Cakes, a bakery and detective agency.

The process is simple. First, customers go to the Troll Cakes site to submit the comment and address of the troll in question. Thek will then bake a cake, write the comment on it using frosting or fondant letters, wrap it up in festive confetti, and send it to the perpetrator.

“When you open it up, [the box] looks like 100 percent good news,” Thek laughs. “And then you see a screen grab of your comment, and it says, ‘Congratulations! Your Internet comment has been made into a Troll Cake.’ ”

The House In the Suburbs

This is a Hotch x reader requested by an awesome anon where Hotch kept his relationship with you a secret from the team because he wanted to see where it went then about a year or two later, hotch, jack, and you, are moving into a house in the suburbs and when Hotch is submitting the change in address to update his file Garcia notices and notifies the rest of the team, leading Hotch to confess the relationship and invite the team over for a barbecue to meet you. This one ended up being kinda long, but I actually really like it and I hope you guys do, too! Please enjoy! :)

“Why do you refuse to tell them about our relationship, Hotch?” You barked, “I know that they’re like family to you!”

“Y/n,” Your boyfriend warned you, his voice low. He could feel the heated argument hurtling toward him, like an eager grenade clip barely hanging on.

You took a deep breath, steadying your heart rate for a moment, “Do you not think we’re going to last? Is that it?” You were hurt and confused, red in the face, doing all that you could to control your rampant anger at your boyfriend.

“I don’t think that at all,” Hotch took a number of large steps toward you. You could tell he was tempted to wrap his arms around your shoulders, but the anger still emanating from you warned him to do otherwise, “Y/n, I really like us. And that’s it right there. I don’t want us to be us and six other people- just us,”

You thought for a moment and Hotch could physically see you softening at his words. He laughed a little under his breath, “Us and Jack of course if that’s alright,”

“Are you kidding!” You couldn’t hide your smile anymore as your anger evaporated, “Jack is literally the best kid in the world!”

“Well,” Hotch chuckled, finally allowing his palms to settle around you, “Then I don’t see a problem here,” And with that, he pressed a kiss to your lips, the argument from mere moments before completely vanished from all mediums around.


“Hotch, babe, do you know if I have any more pairs of socks here?” You called from your boyfriend’s bedroom. It had been over a year since the long-ago fight.

He boyfriend stepped out of the bathroom, still-foamy toothbrush stuck into his palm like a wand, “What?” Hotch thought aloud, “I don’t think so,”

You groaned loudly, “It’s so difficult to have stuff in two different houses! I never know what I have at one and not at the other,” You resigned to stealing one of Hotch’s warm pairs of socks that were three times too big for your feet but would make do.

“Well, why don’t we just get a house together?” Hotch shrugged as if the suggestion was the most natural, easy thing to say in the entire world.

“What did you just say?” You looked up at Hotch in shock, eyes wide in surprise, only one sock slipped loosely onto your feet. His notion was flooded with such excited, crazy spotaneity, it threw you off your feet.

“Let’s sell our places and find one for just us,” Hotch was smirking, enjoying the thought of his own idea. It was rather romantic of him, so spontaneous yet so earnest and meditated.

You were frozen, still in shock. How could such a life-changing idea be uttered with such impossible nonchalance? Hotch was getting uneasy at your lack of response, but within another moment, your face burst into a gargantuan smile. Leaping off the bed, ignoring the cold feeling of the hard wood slapping the bottom of your sock-less foot, you wrapped your arms around Hotch, pressing your lips to his in another fateful kiss. When you pulled away, you were smiling like the Chesire cat.

“What do you say we start house hunting?” Hotch laughed

“I’ll go get my laptop!” You squealed in excitement, jutting out of the room like a train on fire. Hotch’s laughter at your enthusiasm drifted into the hallway. You could hear him finally putting his toothbrush away as you returned.


“Garcia?” Hotch knocked on the technical analyst’s door, pulling it open and entering, “Do you have access to my personal file? I need to update it,”

“Of course, boss man,” Garcia smiled, hot pink lipstick pulling apart to reveal an ivory set of sunshine. She turned to her computer, typing away momentarily before the printer in the corner of her office spurred to life, coughing up his personal file, “Make the changes on that paper then send it to HR, sir,”

“Thanks, Garcia,” Hotch said, marking the paper against her desk.

“Sir, do you mind if I ask you what exactly you’re changing?”

“My address.”

“I didn’t know you were moving!” Garcia cheered, “How exciting! Is Jack thrilled about the whole thing?” She twirled a dancing purple pen between her fingers, feeling the soft ball of fluff perched on the end brush softly against her fingertips.

“Oh yeah, Jack is ecstatic about the whole thing. Of course he’s hesitant about having a woman in the house again,” Hotch answered distractedly, focused on writing the correct words and numbers on the paper.

Hotch didn’t notice the way Garcia’s jaw completely dropped all the way to the floor, revealing a cavern of awe between the fuschia paint of her lips. She had to shake herself out of her astonished trance. Hotch hadn’t even noticed.

“Hold up, please,” Garcia stopped him from writing any farther, leaning forward and snatching the pen right out of Hotch’s hand.

“Garcia! What are you doing?”

“What woman are you moving in with?” The vibrant blonde questioned. When it came to the personal lives of her friends, Garcia’s interrogation skills rivaled that of the BAU’s. The technical analyst’s bright orange floral sweater combated the stern line that consumed her now-unsmiling lips, a curious eyebrow raised.

Hotch backtracked in his mind, flushing white, “My girlfriend,” He answered, accepting his route of no escape from his allied cohort, “We’ve been keeping the relationship to ourselves for awhile. Less pressure and all that. Please, don’t tell the rest of the team, Garcia,” Hotch practically begged.

She leapt from her seat, “Oh no, oh no, oh no,” Garcia shook her head, rising to Hotch’s height with the aid of her much-too-high heels, “Hotch, you know me, there’s no way I can keep a secret like this!”

“Can you at least try?” Hotch pleaded with her, “I don’t think we’re ready to have the rest of the team know about our relationship yet,”

“I’ll try,” Penelope emphasized the pivotal word, drawing it out so that he would remember that she had used it, “But I can’t make any promises. You know how antsy I get when people tell me secrets!”


Okay, so maybe Hotch really shouldn’t trust Garcia with secrets. Nobody should. It took one single day for Garcia to spill the news about Hotch’s secret to the rest of the team. 

“Hotch, I’m so sorry,” Garcia rushed into his office nearly out of breath. She panted the words without context.

“What?”

“Forgive me?” The technical analyst cringed at her own words. She still hadn’t confirmed why exactly she was apologizing to her boss. But she didn’t need to because a mere moment later, in walked the exact reason itself. The team.

“So, Aaron,” David smirked, leaning nonchalantly against a bookcase, “We hear you have a girlfriend,”

“Yeah, when can we meet her?” Emily added, getting straight to the point

They were all smirking. Why did they have to be smirking?!

Garcia looked like a puppy that had been kicked. There was no way he wasn’t going to forgive her, but still he couldn’t help but feel helpless as his mind grappled for an answer. Hotch finally opted for an easy sigh, looking wordlessly up at them.

“Oh, come on Hotch! You have to let us meet her!” JJ pleaded. Spencer chimed in in agreement a moment later. Even Spencer was desperate to meet their his girlfriend. There was no way he could keep this contained anymore. No way. All hope was lost. Abort mission.

Hotch sighed again, “Alright, why don’t you guys come over to our new place on Sunday? We’ll have a barbecue and you guys can meet her. JJ, you can bring the kids,”

“There ya’ go,” Morgan smiled, patting his boss on the back, “Now was that so hard?” He laughed.

The agents all filed out in one globular mess of a mob, like a clique of raucous rabbits. Garcia stayed behind, wringing the rows of rainbow bracelets climbing up her arms.

“Sir?” She asked hesitantly, “I’m sorry for telling them. I know how much you wanted to keep it a secret. I’ll make it up to you. I’ll tell you one of secrets then you can tell them! No, I’ll babysit Jack for a whole day! Actually, I’ve been told I’m not very good at babysitting… How about I-”

Hotch caught her off with a laugh and a wave of his hand, “It’s fine, Garcia. Really. It was only a matter of time until you guys found out anyway. If you want to do something to make it up to me, then you can show up at the barbecue on Sunday, how does that sound?”

Garcia’s lips exploded once again, “I’m very excited to meet her, sir,”

And with that, Garcia scurried out of the unit chief’s office without another word.


The barbecue. The day had finally arrived and the freshly painted house buried deep in the suburbs was buzzing with palpable excitement. Jack couldn’t wait for all of his favorite people to visit, overjoyed to see Uncle Spencer and Uncle Dave and Henry once again. The adults on the other hand (you especially) were incredibly nervous. 

All morning you were fidgety and anxious, wracked with never ending nerves. Hotch did what he could to comfort you, reassure you that these people were going to adore you, but you could tell that deep, deep down, he was just a little nervous, too.

The sound of the doorbell startled you to attention, and you anxiously followed your boyfriend to the door. As the door swung open, you were met with the sight of a bustling group of seven adults, two bustling kids that must have belonged to JJ trailing behind with laughs mounting jubilantly across their faces before they disappeared into the backyard in search of Jack.

Introductions were made and it became fretfully obvious that these people were nothing if not welcoming, if not friendly. Especially Garcia. Instead of a polite hand shake, the enthusiastic woman opted for an energetic hug, wrapping her arms around you in exuberant welcome.

“I’m Penelope, it is so nice to meet you,” The vibrantly robed woman gushed

“Oh, you, too, Penelope,” You smiled back warmly, rapidly feeling more and more comfortable in the presence of your boyfriend’s team.

“What do you say we take this outside?” Hotch suggestion, his arm wrapped naturally around your waist after several minutes of casual small talk.

Laughs and smiles filled the warm afternoon under the smiling golden sun. The kids laughed and played while the adults had their own fun, chit chatting easily the entire afternoon, seizing their rare opportunity for a stress-less day without work.

Garcia and Hotch barely left your side. Garcia, eager to learn all about you and seemingly become best of friends, and Hotch simply never wanting to leave your side. The food was delicious, a scrumptious summer treat on tired tongues fatigued from laughter, yet another embellishment of the increasingly delightful day.

As the food sitting on dinner plates began to disappear, Jack tried to capture your attention, waving his hands in the air from a couple seats down the table. After a moment of zero acknowledgement, Jack said rather loudly across the table, “Mom!”

And just like that, you felt everybody freeze around you, Hotch’s muscles tensed up as if the muscles themselves were additional bones. Garcia’s sharp intake of breath on your other side was painfully audible. You knew about what had happened to Jack’s mother, what had happened to Hotch’s ex-wife. It was awful, a trauma that would forever change Hotch and his son and everybody around them in so many infinite ways. The name that Jack called you could have scared you, could have changed everything, but it was Jack for Pete’s sake, so you turned to him with a muted smile, eyes soft, “Yeah, Jack?”

You slowly felt everybody around you let out a breath. Hotch’s arm tightened around your waist in a different way this time. He pressed a kiss to your cheek, “Thank you,” He whispered subtly to you as chatter resumed. And once again, all was good.

After awhile, Hotch filtered away to work at the grill to finish cooking off the last of the patties simultaneously chatting with Dave, matching beers in hand. You, Garcia, and Spencer, had ventured into the grassy abyss of the delightful backyard to join the boys in their game, running wildly and falling about in the dewy wonderland of afternoon joy.

“I like this one, Aaron,” Rossi commented, watching as you tumbled to the ground with Jack, Garcia plunging down along with the two of you moments later, “Would’ve liked to meet her earlier but…. she’s still a keeper,”

Hotch couldn’t hid the smile that reached his lips even as he brought his drink up to his mouth, “Yeah,” He said happily, watching you from the homely backyard the two of you now shared together, “I know,”

I emailed my Liberal MP (I just moved out of an NDP riding) regarding my concerns around C-23 and received, what I assume is, a general response from his office…still, I’m pleased to receive a response and was wondering what your thoughts may be on it:

Thank you for writing to MP Terry Beech with your concerns regarding Bill C-23, An Act respecting the preclearance of persons and goods in Canada and the United States. Terry appreciates hearing from constituents about their concerns and priorities, and asked me to follow-up with you to provide greater details and clarifications on Bill C-23.

The Government knows that a secure but smoothly functioning border is absolutely essential to the economic prosperity of both Canada and the United States. Preclearance at Canadian airports, in place for several decades now, is an important advantage for Canadian travellers, as it helps to avoid lineups and delays, and also enables more direct flights between many Canadian cities and U.S. airports not otherwise equipped to receive international travellers, such as Ronald Reagan Airport in D.C. and LaGuardia in New York City.

Each year, 12 million passengers undergo preclearance at eight major Canadian airports, including YVR, with little incident. Due to the success of the program, Prime Minister Trudeau and then-President Obama concluded a new agreement in the spring of 2016 which creates a framework for the expansion of land, rail, marine, and air preclearance between both countries. The Obama administration and the Congress passed legislation implementing the agreement late last year. Bill C-23, introduced last June, is Canada’s own implementing legislation.

We’ve heard from several constituents with concerns about the bill’s effect on Canadian sovereignty and the rights of travellers, and wanted to clear a few things up. Very little will change between the existing system and the proposed framework.

Most importantly, Canadian law will continue to apply within preclearance areas at all times and preclearance operations conducted by American officers must comply with our laws, including the Charter of Rights and Freedoms and the Canadian Human Rights Act.

While U.S. preclearance officers would indeed be permitted to detain somebody if there were reasonable grounds to believe that the person has broken Canadian law, American officers would be required to transfer that person into Canadian custody as soon as feasible, which is already the case under the current system.

If a traveller in a preclearance area decides that they no longer wish to enter the United States, they are entitled to withdraw from the area and preclearance officers would be prohibited from imposing any unreasonable delay on the traveller. That being said, they would have the authority to question the traveller about their reason for withdrawal or take a photograph to establish identity. These are common-sense security measures which will not unduly inconvenience travellers.

In terms of Canadians’ rights and freedoms, Bill C-23 and preclearance facilities actually enhance them. Many travellers entering the United States would normally clear customs and immigration on the American side, subject only to that country’s laws. In preclearance facilities, however, travellers are protected by our own laws and both Canadian and American officers are subject to the requirements of the Charter.

Expanded preclearance is a very positive development for Canada’s thriving tourism and travel industries. It has been lauded by the Canadian, BC, and Quebec chambers of commerce, as well as travel operators such as Vancouver’s Rocky Mountaineer and Toronto’s Porter Airlines. This government will continue to work hard to promote economic growth and travellers’ interests, while upholding the Charter and Canadians’ fundamental rights and freedoms.

Once again, thank you for writing to Mr. Beech about Bill C-23 and preclearance. I hope that we were able to address your concerns. Please don’t hesitate to write again, should you have questions or comments on this subject or any other.

Best regards,

AlltheCanadianPolitics: Still doesn’t address all of my concerns about the bill. I’d be more ok with Mr. Beech’s reasoning if Hillary Clinton was in office, and not Trump. Border security guards in Trump’s America are already ‘acting rogue’ and disobeying federal judge’s rulings. I’m still very uncomfortable that we’re giving American Border guards the ability to carry weapons and detain suspects on Canadian soil.

Chosen or Choosing

“Ah, would that flashing-eyed Athena might choose to love thee even as then she cared exceedingly for glorious Odysseus in the land of the Trojans, where we Achaeans suffered woes. For never yet have I seen the gods so manifestly shewing love, as Pallas Athena did to him, standing manifest by his side”

-Homer,The Odyssey Book 3, Translated by A. T. Murray

Each of us is drawn to Hellenic Polytheism, and the Theoi, in our own way. Admiration breeding love and devotion, or a flash of divine guidance setting us on the path of worship. Whether you’ve come to the Theoi of your own choice, seeking Them out through worship, or if They guided you to Hellenic Polytheism and Their influence brought you to worship, the many ways in which we find ourselves as Hellenic Polytheists show the diverse nature of our shared faith. No one way of finding the Theoi is more correct than others, and each is a journey, regardless of your starting point. We invite you to share how you found your way to the Theoi, lending wider views to the community of the ways in which we can feel called.

This month’s wonderful topic, submitted to us by @myoldusernamewasbetter, addresses just that exact thing. Please join us this month as we share our stories and discuss how we chose the Theoi, and how They chose us.

  • When you started out as a Hellenic Polytheist, would you say you chose the gods or the gods chose you? 
  • If the gods called to you, how so?
  • If you chose the gods, what drew you to worship?

Submit your responses, or @ us (@’s are easier to track than the tagging system) on your posts so we can make sure to reblog them!

Well… You say that, but I’ve actually been getting some pretty nasty/threatening anons recently, so I set up an IP tracker for whoever opens my ask page. I actually just submitted your IP address along with a screenshot of your threat to tips.fbi.gov

bizarrethings  asked:

hello, I´ll take n3 this year and i was wondering if you could give me some tips on material to study (apps, books, videos..) thank you :D

Sure:
Kanzen Master books are the best IMO for test practise, they’re the hardest, but also the most reflective of the difficulty of the real exam and use test-format questions (Sou Matome is cute, but has some question types that never come up on the real test, a lot of unnecessary vocabulary and is pitched too easy; some people love it and if it works for you great, I prefer Kanzen Master though).


The Power Drill series is also good for practising timing.

Nihongonomori N3 vocabulary and Grammar videos- I made flashcards for a lot of the vocabulary that came up in these and a good ammount came up on the real test when I did it last July. I like that they’re 100% Japanese videos. I wish they weren’t so slow and said things more naturally to help pick up pitch accent etc, but the delivery is good, the vocab seemed relevant and their videos are well-organised and comprehensive.

If you haven’t signed up for one get an Audible free trial. You get one free audiobook and you can use your credit for this to get one of the intermediate JapanesePod101 audio books. I got one that way and it has over 26 HOURS of podcasts on it, no adverts, no fucking about on itunes (JapanesePod101′s itunes podcast feed is limited to a few episodes and is a hideously disorganised mix of beginner lessons, survival Japanese, random vocab and a lot of other stuff I don’t want jamming up my computer, with just a few rare podcasts at my level I actually want- I may just be doing it wrong though.) I don(’t like how much English they use, but I do like the convenience of having this right on my phone. I’ve done over 18 hours of listening practise I otherwise wouldn’t have done in the last fortnight because of this free download and it covers a lot of N3 grammar. I know you can sign up for a free account on JapanesePod101 but the spam you like you wouldn’t believe, so I’ve disabled my account there.

I also listened to a lot of the LingQ podcasts before and found those good too. On itunes there is News in Slow Japanese, 中3ラジコ  (a radio show designed for JHS students to understand current affairs) 

Apps: obviously Anki or Memrise are both very useful for vocabulary and kanji. Beyond them I reccomend HelloTalk- you can do language exchange, use your Japanese with native speakers and get support when you need it, in return for supporting someone with your native language. It’s a great app and I know having friends cheering you on can really help you.
HiNative will let you ask native speakers questions about their language and is also a really useful tool to have.

For reading practise Yotsubato!, The Magic Treehouse series and the 10分で読めるseries for low-mid level elementary school kids are great. You need to read a lot and fast in the exam- it’s exhausting, so you need to build your stamina by regularly reading, it’s not a skill you can suddenly cram the way you may be able to with kanji or vocab to a certain extent. NHK Newswebeasy is also great.

Last year I made the tumblr @jlptstudygroup where you can join other learners, share resources and support each other in the run up to N3. It’s a group blog so anyone who joins as admin can contribute, PM me your email address and I’ll send you a tumblr admin link if you want to join the blog. (This is not something tumblr allows you to do without submitting your email address).
