thank you tumblr for putting up with this

Hello! I hope all is well. My name is Christina Liao and I’m a freelance travel writer. I was recently in Kyoto and had the immense privilege of having dinner with two geiko and one maiko. I wanted to send along the link to the article that I did on my experience in case there is any interest of putting it up on your Tumblr. Thank you for your consideration! http://www.vogue.com/article/geisha-culture-kyoto-japan-how-to-see-geiko-maiko

Hey Christina! Thank you so much! I’m really happy that Vogue published your article. It was such a pleasant reading. I especially love the story of geiko Masaki, who studied business and media, just like me!

Just a heads-up, I won’t be here, I don’t know for how long, but for obvious reasons. And if anyone actually care, don’t worry, I am fine, I just don’t feel like being here, people are welcome to poke me on Skype or Discord, but I might not answer because I don’t feel well.

Thank you for anyone who is being polite, respectful and overall nice to me, because sometimes I feel like I am just getting shitted on, even though I try to be there for anyone who needs it. I might just be going down a hill which is a little too steep, but it will probably be okay in a couple of days, real life is stressful and Tumblr is no better.

I will answer stuff, but will put it in my queue when I do, so even if things pop up, I might not be here.

Take care all and have fun.

Soo much luw herw after all ive seen (^~^) But Can someone explain me how these work ? Excuze my stupidness ╥﹏╥

((Thank you <3 And of course I can, you’re not stupid at all! The blog works by having people submit messages - for people they like, admire, or just plain think need cheering up - and putting those messages to an image to post anonymously. 

To submit a message, all you have to do is write it out in the ask or submit boxes, and I do the rest! They should post within the next day, as long as everything runs smoothly. There are no real restrictions to size or content other than no negativity, and trying to keep it to 5 people per message, so if you want to submit something, go wild!

Hope that helps <3))

Haikyuu!! Shiratorizawa’s #5 Tendou Satori!

so i just watched the video the leafs put out about violence against women and homophobia.
i watched it twice.
to say i am shell shocked is the most base description of my emotions right now.
i spent just about ten minutes crying and am still tearing up occasionally.
do you all know how many people follow the leafs? whether theyre on tumblr or not, whether its a casual following or an obsessive following, do you all know HOW MANY PEOPLE this video could reach?
that’s millions of people watching a video of two of their alternate captains, a star defenseman, and a man whose literal job it is to fight on ice, shouting down violence against women. pledging to empower the women in their lives. casually (it was only mentioned once, by morgan rielly) but firmly shutting down homophobia. promising to stand with us as allies.
hockey is a lot of things for a lot of people on this site. for me it’s always been a safe place, discourse and occasional toxicity aside.
nothing has ever made me feel more grateful, or more validated in my chosen safe space, than this video. and maybe thats dramatic. maybe thats stupid. but my team, and one of my role models, just showed that they are, without a doubt, on my side, and as much in my corner as i am in theirs.
and that? that means everything to me.

Here’s an animation test from before we began the animation of the film. I had almost no time to figure out the style of the smoke and a way to animate it but yeah it was fun to experiment and I’m very happy with the result !:)

Edit: So you can put 10 images up to 10MB each in one post but it seems like a single gif can’t live here on tumblr if it’s more than 3MB.. So as this stuff is mostly texture work, below 3MB there’s nothing left thank you tumblr I love you so much so much.

Hey guys, how are you all? I hope you’re all doing well. The holidays are almost here and this year is finally ending. My blog is four years old now and I wanted to make a follow forever for this occasion. I guess I just wanted to make this to thank you all. 2016 was a shitty year for me and I’m really glad it’s ending but you all made it a little easier and I’m grateful for that. I made many incredible and sweet friends on here and I love them to bits.

Followers: thank you for sticking and putting up with me during these four years, I love every message I get from you guys even though I suck at replying on time. If you recently followed me, then I hope you enjoy my blog. You’re all amazing and I appreciate every single one of you ♥

Mutuals: tumblr wouldn’t be fun without you guys, thank you for making my tumblr experience wonderful. I don’t really talk much but I enjoy seeing every one of you on my dash and secretly wish we could be friends.

Happy holidays ★ I hope you have a wonderful time with your family and friends and that 2017 treats you well!

“What if I just took all the bad ideas I’ve had over the last few months, and put them together into one giant shitpost as an homage to a joke AMV from 2007?” -me, a week ago

Yeah, this is what happens. I am so, so sorry. (except i cut it short because of tumblr’s upload limit, so i actually have plenty of bad ideas left)

This is also my 4000 followers special video! Thank you all so much! I hope you know what you signed up for.

Youtube Link: (x)

I can’t believe I got 30K followers on Tumblr! Thank you all!!

Since I’m not an English speaker, I don’t usually put my words out here. However, right now, I really wanna hug each of you for liking my work and giving me compliments. I’m not a confident person, but you guys helped me with building up my confidence through my work little by little. 

I know I’m still on the journey, the journey of art. I hope you guys would like to see my growth all the way there.  :)

Thank you again!

ravencacaw  asked:

Hello, so I've only just come across your blog and was wondering why you defend Dumbledore, considering that most fans these days pin him as not as great a guy as Harry believes (manipulative, not really caring about Harry etc.)? (or if you already have a post about it I'd love to read it) Thanks :)

I’m not sure that I already have a post.. because defending anyone on here is like a death sentence. But I guess this is the perfect time to put it all out there.

First of all, let me say that most fans don’t pin him as a bad guy, most fans on tumblr do. Yes, there’s a big difference. Believe it or not, before I had a tumblr I loved Harry Potter even more than I do now. When I signed up I expected to find people I could share my love with, but all I saw was hate. Everywhere. It was like the kids here were trying to claim the series for their own, say it was written differently, that it was inaccurate to the true story. They even said they hated JK Rowling herself!!! I mean how?? None of us could possibly be where we are today without her!!

Anyway, I’ve always loved Dumbledore. He reminded me of my grandmother, she was the wisest woman I ever knew. There’s something comforting in people who seem to have all the answers, the people who know best. The people who love you and know best.

But Dumbledore wasn’t a grandparent, he wasn’t even a parent. He was Harry’s mentor, and that constitutes a very different relationship.

JKR: “If Dumbledore had been Harry’s grandfather, why on Earth would he have been sent to live with the Dursleys?” [x]

(Not to mention if Dumbledore had been Harry’s grandfather the blood bond would have prevailed in a happier home.)

It took me awhile to understand why people hate him. I agree that it was harsh of him to leave Harry with the Dursleys, to leave Harry out of his plans, but we forget that Dumbledore’s greatest quality was that he was wise. He knew what he was doing. His master plan was 16 years in the making. And sometimes we seem to forget that every decision he made was explained to us.

If Dumbledore hadn’t left Harry at the Dursleys he would have died. One or even a couple of wizards are nothing compared to blood magic.

Dumbledore hadn’t told Harry he was a horcrux because any child who grows up thinking there is something terrible and evil about them will remember it during every decision they make.

And he certainly didn’t mention to Harry that he was going to die because it is a terribly cruel thing to tell a child, let alone a child who doesn’t yet understand his place in the war.

JK: I don’t want to give too much away, but Dumbledore is a very wise man who firstly knows Harry is going to have to learn a few hard lessons to prepare him for what maybe coming in his life, so he allows Harry to do a lot of things he wouldn’t normally allow another pupil to do and he also unwillingly permits Harry to confront a lot of things he’d rather protect him from but as people who have finished Order of the Phoenix will know, Dumbledore has had to step back a little bit from Harry in an effort to teach him some of life’s harder lessons.“ [x]

The crux of the matter is that Dumbledore ended up caring a great deal about Harry — many characters throughout the book tell him so — but just because Harry is the protagonist doesn’t mean the books are really about him. The whole point of the series is overcoming evil. Dumbledore’s job wasn’t to raise Harry, to parent him, that was left to Remus and Sirius. Dumbledore’s job was to win the war. He didn’t plan on loving Harry as much as he did.

“I cared about you too much,” said Dumbledore simply. “I cared more for your happiness than your knowing the truth, more for your peace of mind than my plan, more for your life than the lives that might be lost if the plan failed. In other words, I acted exactly as Voldemort expects we fools who love to act.” -OotP pg.838

Making difficult decisions doesn’t make you a bad person. Especially when they win a war. When that happens, you are forced to realize that sacrifices must be made for the greater good.

E: “Do you have more fun writing the evil characters? Because Voldemort [the sinister wizard who killed Harry’s parents] is the quintessential evil character.”

JK: “Yeah, he’s a bad one. Do I have more fun? I loved writing Dumbledore and Dumbledore is the epitome of goodness.” [x]

The hate that Dumbledore gets is just like all the other tumblr hate. It’s founded upon the whims of adolescents who are up in arms about matters they can only see in black and white.

Please don’t send me any messages in response to this statement. I absolutely loathe fandom wank.

Ways to Bond With Your Tarot Deck!

I recently did a BUNCH of tarot readings with a deck I hadn’t used in a while, and by the time I was finished, I could literally just feel my cards getting irritated and worn out. It was quite a strange sensation, but I finally felt like I could relate to the “big shot” diviners I look up to on Tumblr!

I’m going to say that if your cards decide they’re getting too tired after a certain number of readings, just say thank you, and put them away. I usually wrap mine up in a black shawl I have, and set a quartz crystal(for cleansing) and an amethyst(for psychic gifts and mental acuity) on top of them for a few hours.

Some ways you can bond with a tired deck(or if you just don’t want to do readings atm):

  • Shuffling absentmindedly
  • Sleeping with the deck under your pillow
  • Studying the cards themselves, I.e. the photos on each one
  • Practice shuffling and drawing cards
  • Coming up with your own meaning or even stories for each card based on your gut or the pictures

There’s lots of things you can do that don’t necessarily require actual readings that might wear out both you and your cards. But the more time you spend with them, the more in-tune you become with each other, and the more reliable and clear your readings can become! I would also suggest doing things not related to the deck itself, like studying tarot card meanings online, learning how to make your own spreads and finding spreads online. Learning how to handle your deck can make for a much more enjoyable experience with it!

Shop Minder Karamatsu

So I finally finished translating this short story from Atomatsu. It’s about Chibita getting ill and asking Karamatsu to watch his cart for him, and Karamatsu’s attempts to “help” by sexing up the exterior in his absence. Spoilers: it does not end well.

Thanks very much to my friend tammaiya, who answered some questions I had about some fiddly bits, and @deadybones who helped me put on some finishing touches at the end. I couldn’t have done it without y’all.

I split it up by scene so it wouldn’t be the longest Tumblr post in the world:

Part 1
Part 2
Part 3
Part 4


**Translation notes are at the bottom of each post, and because it’s such a well-loved aspect of his speech, I’ve put Karamatsu’s random English in bolded italics.

Thanks for reading, and I hope you laugh as hard as I did!

Happy Blackout day everyone!!! On this date one year ago at 7:00pm I posted my first selfie on tumblr. I was so nervous because I wasn’t sure how people would precieve me. Would the internet end up mocking me or would it accept me? I had my blog for a year and the people who followed me had no clue what I looked like. I wanted it to stay that way. Put to my surprise my selfie that I posted for the first blackout day was accepted and shared by so many people. My blog and my personal life changed dramatically because of blackout day. The positive messages that I recieved from people gave me the push and the drive that I needed to finish my abandoned book project. Now a year later I can proudly say that I’m a much happier person and I’m also a self published author. http://www.amazon.com/Cosmic-Callisto-Caprica-Missing-Saturn-ebook/dp/B01CAIOB8G

♡ ♡  vimpse’s follow forever  ♡ ♡

I’ve been meaning to do this for a while, and since I’ll be gone for a little bit starting tomorrow (going home to Norway for a bit, yay!), I thought it’d be a fun thing to leave as the most recent post on my blog while I’m away. :)

These 20 blogs are my absolute 100% “follow forever” blogs. Some are inactive, some have moved on to other games, some have announced leaving, some are still posting regularly but all of them are collectively, in my opinion, the gods of TS2 tumblr. The greats. The ones that have had either the biggest influence or been the biggest inspiration to me. So to all of you, whether or not you ever end up seeing this…:

Thank you for sharing your beautiful games with us. I can’t imagine the amount of hours and effort that you’ve put into your games, and browsing your blogs always makes me want to play my own game. There’s even a fairly large chance that, without a lot of you, I wouldn’t even still be playing TS2. From building and decorating to posing and storytelling, you’ve all created such amazing things using nothing but a game from 2004 (and, well… a fair amount of CC and maybe just a little photoshop, but same thing!). I’ll probably never ever stop going back to your blogs and browsing through your tags and old posts, and I’m really grateful y’all exist. <3

So without further ado (and in random order) here are their blogs:
@snapdragoned
@spaceywaceysims
@alienpod
@allisas
@slyndseysims
@simper-fi
@amonsimmies
@poppet-sims
@holleyberry
@boolparty
@voleste
@hambergersims
@keoni-chan
@deedee-sims
@lesyasun
@selenaq13
@mswn
@meetmetotheriver
@darkestdawn
@kahiena

You are all amazing. Really.

P.S. obviously there are a lot of talented people on Tumblr, and I appreciate every single one of you beautiful bastards still playing and posting TS2. Love is all around! <3
