Moment of Silence

Can I get a,

moment of silence?

From your,

emotional violence!

You emotional tyrant!

You have,

my focus all violet!

There’s the phone…

I should dial it!

But every time that I try it!

You just become more violent!

The pain soaks through my eyelids.

How do I survive this?

I build a wall!

Deep inside this!

(points to heart)

My head is hurt,

My eye is split!

There’s a friend,

I can’t say ”Hi” to him.

Because the outcome is your violence!

Just one moment,

wrapped in silence…

For all this emotional violence.

The Prosen One

BMC Bootleg

Everyone else is giving their thoughts sooo

- First of all, as if we couldn’t think Michael was any gayer

- And Christine couldn’t get more extra

- Rich and Jake lifting Christine into the air is so great and adorable and I love it

- The choreography for More Than Survive, especially the cool build at the end, is awesome

- Paul Whitty (Mr Reyes/Scary stockboy/Jeremy’s dad) is hilarious! Especially as Mr Reyes
- “So what’s the story with Jake and Madeline??”

- Jake and Christine’s entire encounter was just asdfghjkl

- I kinda wish that worked out?? Like replace Jeremy/Christine (which I do love, don’t get me wrong) with Jeremy/Michael AND Christine/Jake and I’d totally be okay with that??

- Gerard absolutely nailed the big note in the Squip Song, like we know our boy is talented but I didn’t expect it to be so flawless

- THE HAND CHOREOGRAPHY IN THE SQUIP SONG IS FUCKING AMAZING

- After watching this I have such a big crush on both Chloe and Brooke and I am not ashamed

- Jeremy’s character is different to how I thought he’d be. Like in the soundtrack he kinda has a, little to no personality vibe but he actually has a lot of depth which I like

People actually expect me to believe that if you throw a group of only one sex inside a fucking maze with no memories, no social, cultural or religious discourses forced upon them, no outside influences of any kind for years and years with only each other to grow close too, trust, survive with, protect, build with, bond with etc. 

That eVERY SINGLE ONE WOULD END UP STRAIGHT??????!??!!

“The more actors I speak to I realise that there is a kindred past. Most actors that I can think of moved quite a bit, and I think it builds this survival mechanism where you develop the ability to adjust. You have to meet new people. To read people. You can be with different groups of people, and you’re not being dishonest about who you are, but you’re also allowing a different part of you to interact with these people. It encourages characters.” – Armie Hammer

I was just rewatching the first Iron Man movie and something stood out to me

When Tony wakes up in the cave and the terrorists come in to tell him to build the Jericho missile, Tony’s immediate response was “I refuse.”

No hesitation at all. It was clear and steadfast refusal. And even after they WATERBOARDED him multiple times, he still wasn’t willing to do it.

People say Tony Stark was just an arrogant womanizing jerk before he was Iron Man, yet even before he was the man in the armor, when faced with threats to his survival, Tony refused to build weapons that would be used by terrorists to hurt people.

Yes perhaps Tony was ignorant and naive to the reality of what his weapons could be used for or fall into the wrong hands, but his weapons manufacturing was never about the desire to hurt people but rather the desire to protect. His father built weapons for the government to help end wars and save lives, and here he is trying to continue that legacy of smarter and better weapons that would strike out enemy targets that don’t end up with collateral damage.

He had no idea that the man who helped raised him, a man he trusted, had all this time been double dealing behind his back and using him - he had no idea Obadiah was making deals with terrorists - yet the moment Tony found out his weapons were falling into the wrong hands, he put an immediate stop to it with no care about how it would effect his wealth or the fact that they were now suddenly a weapons manufacturing company that makes no weapons. What mattered more was not allowing his weapons to harm any more innocent lives.

“I saw young Americans killed by the very weapons I designed to protect them.”

The real tragedy of Tony Stark is that he cares, he cares so much, yet that care and desire to protect can also be the thing that drives him to the extreme that allows something like Ultron to come into being.

Ultron wasn’t just born out of Tony’s fear, it was also born out of Tony’s desire to save and protect lives, which is incredibly sad and tragic, that someone who has so much care and love for people, who tries so hard to protect lives, always end up creating the things that did more harm than protection.

Even in Civil War, in trying to protect the team, in trying to keep them all safe and together, the harder he tried, the more the team crumbled and broke.

Tony Stark has always wanted to save lives, to protect people, yet it almost always never goes his way, it almost always fall apart and he’s left standing in the wreckage tying to rebuild and try again because that’s all he knows how to do.

I found this guide at a local gaming store yesterday. I’ve wanted to get some silent hill strategy guides for a while and I couldn’t resist.

So I might have made the creepiest place in Minecraft

As you can see, my nether portal is there & I thought I’d build a supply shack/spawn point to spawn at whenever I do nether trips BUT it couldn’t just be a normal supply shack…

So I built a church… complete with worshippers.

Yes, that’s like holy water/the place they baptise babies…

The upper level is my bed/tool supply.


TL;DR: I built a church, complete with armour stand people, just so I’d have somewhere to spawn after dying in the nether.

Sunrise over the balcony. And the branch mine entrance, the design is a ever so slightly modified version of Mumbo Jumbo’s from the Hermitcraft server. I hate having a really boring branch mine, so I like to decorate them with entrances and I thought Mumbo’s looked awesome I liked having the little bit of green running through it just to give it a more lively feeling.

this

is an overgrown canopy of thought
which trails down tight veins
pumping ink into paper lungs,
oxidizing the mind

this is cutting into mother for fire
to taunt the cold
& to beckon sails
with ashen sufferings,

yea

here’s to notching days in stone
to fight delirium
counting down from infinity
the day you’ll be saved

here’s to the crushed entrails
of a beetle slipping
past reluctant molars:
puke, & start again

& start again

& there’s one more fucking notch on the wall

is this gushing grandiosity
a presumption on the living, or
on the dead?

how much is ego? how much is survival?

to build a paper house from paper thoughts &
to tear flesh from my body just
to tear flesh from the water just
to summon my god

yea

my pen lances my thigh
my worms coax a catch
& a little burned book of poems
signals the rescuers

too late:

the lifeboat sunken, the moment passed
i look to steal from mother again,
for souls starve fast.

the art of survival

sagurus  asked:

I don't read your books but my girlfriend does so I asked her if she has any questions for you. she doesn't but she just wanted to tell you you're awesome and loves your work! I hope to read some of it soon too :) Also, I actually thought of some: Any advice for an aspiring writer who has fleshed out characters but is struggling to write a story around them? What motivations would you give a massive criminal syndicate that runs much of the criminal world other than World Domination or For Evulz

Criminal syndicates aren’t particularly interested in good or evil; they’re interested in profit and cornering their market. I would look to see who is their competition, and what they can do to buy out or consume their competition. The less bloodshed there is, the easier it is to get past the Forces for Good (in this case, the cops, the FBI, judges, people like that). Criminals like that get into criminality to get revenge on old enemies and to make a profit. If they search for power it’s only so they can get more profit. There’s a percentage of them that do it to do bad things to people, but there’s not a whole lot of profit in that and a whole lot of jail.

Where can they gain with the least cost to themselves? It doesn’t always have to involve killing. Violent criminals tend not to last very long. Just look at the gangsters of the ‘20s. The most violent ones tended to have very short careers. The smart ones of the time survived to build empires for themselves. 

As far as plots go, I suggest you steal from history. Like the ‘20s gangsters, Russian syndicates (they’re nice and nasty), or pirates. Take their exploits and adapt it to your own world. Write what you find fun! I read all kinds of true crime books, and I’ve adapted a lot of them for my own work. 

(And tell your girlfriend I said hi!!)

melmercury  asked:

I've been trying to learn this sp so sx thing for a while but I never get it! Would you mind to explain this for me? Sorry to bother you with this!

really long post warning

(here’s the source i’m semi-summarizing, it’s got a lot more info)

So, the theory is that 3 basic human instincts evolved for survival purposes, and they are Self-Preservation, Sexual, and Social. Every person has a primary instinct that fuels them, and they use a secondary instinct to further the goals of the first. The primary instinct is used in its purest form, while the secondary is more abstract (acting under the first). Your blind-spot is your final instinct, or the one that’s usually omitted.

Sp: what you kinda think of when you think survival, it seeks safety and comfort, considers the essentials, practical, individualistic, “I’m going to gather these resources so I Don’t Die” 

Sp/So: “I will take care of myself by finding a community to survive in.”

Sp/Sx: “I will take care of myself by pursuing a focus (person/thing)”

Sp-blinds: (Sx/So and So/Sx) have difficulty taking care of themselves, are often reckless, and can /become/ their community/fixation if they’re not careful. On the flipside, they can also begin to overcompensate, becoming neurotic, and shuting themselves off to the outside world. 

Sx: not only about relationships, it’s more about energy, “all or nothing”, it’s focused, competetive and seeks out singularities. It’s about the forces that power people, passions, and intensity.

Sx/Sp: “I will pursue my fixation by gathering resources”

Sx/So: “I will pursue my fixation by finding a community”

Sx-blinds: (So/Sp and Sp/So) often feel like they’re missing something in their lives, as though they’re passionless, and can come across as cold at times. They may overcompensate for Sx and become obsessed with a specific person/relationship, “stalker-ish behavior”. 

So: wants to further the entire human race, contributes to the group, and cares about the whole. May wish to achieve some form of social status, tends to try and maintain appearancs.

So/Sx: “I will strengthen my community by focusing on a person/thing”

So/Sp: “I will strengthen my community by taking care of myself.”

So-blinds: (Sp/Sx and Sx/Sp) often made to feel antagonistic for not contributing to the whole, they may be disinterested in maintaining appearances, and sometimes overcompensate for the lack of So by becoming hyper-aware of social structure and function. 

Then there’s:

Syn-flow: Sp –> So –> Sx –> Sp

Contra-flow: Sp –> Sx –> So –> Sp

the syn-flow types (Sp/So, So/Sx, Sx/Sp) are the ones that “embrace the human condition”, while the contra-flow ones (Sp/Sx, Sx/So, and So/Sp) “reject it.” Idk, I kinda gather that the syn-flow types make more sense in accords to human nature and generally how you’d think about surviving. I.E. survive in the wild –> build a village, (Sp–>So) is kinda how humans have always been, whereas Sp –> Sx is obviously a more individualistic approach. 

The thing is, we aren’t hunting and gathering anymore, so you won’t die if you’re an Sx/So and you won’t have to worry about not building a village if you’re So-blind y’know what i mean? idk
