DARPA Door 3 - @hidinginhumor

For Door Number Three, please send 3 other people (on the Participation Listor not) a message telling them that you appreciate them and enjoy their presence in DARP! It can be on anon or off, just SPREAD SOME LOVE!

Relaxed, easy-going, and really fun to write with whether you’re writing a quick back and forth or something a bit longer. Hidinginhumor is quality, able to pull off a lot of different angles for Neil, the muse, and to create a really nice story flow. Neil himself is soft (can I say that? Lol). He’s not hard edges, though he’s no push over, and his humanity really does shine through. Small details make a muse, and he has them in spades, and the Mun does a really nice job of maintaining relationships with a whole bunch of blogs which are actually super fun to see on the dash (like the ENTIRE HAWKE FAMILY? @castorthecaster @greywardenbethany @shxdowbound and others - I’m sorry I can’t list you all, you’re all amazing too!). Go follow, go write, have fun. <3

jackharries: Hello!

I wanted to write a soppy message as i’m sure you don’t already have enough filling up your social feeds… I’d like to take a moment to say a HUGE thanks to anyone and everyone who has watched our videos or participated in our channel over the last year. Specifically to those who have been watching for longer and have stuck with us.

This year more than ever before has been challenging, rewarding, exciting and a big lesson for both Finn and I. We’ve met new people, explored new places and learnt new skills. Importantly we’ve been on a journey of experimentation and discovery and although it sounds like a cliché we feel like today marks the start of a new Era.

I can’t wait for 2015. Next year we will be using every inch of our creative brains and every second of our time to make the best stuff we possible can and share it on here. Our aim is to carry on telling stories, exploring new places and capturing the world around us.

I feel so proud of what JacksGap has become and the incredible community that surrounds it. Thank you for making it what it is. We feel so lucky to have had such a great year and we’re going to do our very damn best to make the next even better.

Bring on 2015!

Jack x (Sorry for filling up your feed)

Help us fight cancer!

As many of you know my dad has been fighting cancer for a few years now, and this year, to help out, I decided to join the Relay for Life team at my school, so please take your time and read this, and if you can..make a donation. Even if you donate a dollar, it will help a ton!

Click here to visit my PERSONAL page.
*if you can’t donate, i understand, but please reblog this to spread the word :)*

Like you, I know too many people whose lives have been touched by cancer. From people who I went to high school with, to parents of my friends, to even my relatives. That’s why I’ve joined the American Cancer Society to help finish the fight by participating in my campus Relay For Life event.

A Relay For Life event is much more than just walking around a track. At the event, we celebrate loved ones who have won their battle against cancer, remember those no longer with us, and fight back against this disease that affects so many. For those of you interested in learning more about relay, click here to watch a video about how it started, or go to their website.

Because of the funds we raise, more people in our community…

  • Have the information and tools they need to avoid getting cancer or find the disease early, when it’s easiest to treat, by visiting cancer.org
  • Have a place to turn for help 24/7 by calling 1-800-227-2345
  • Benefit from the progress being made toward finding cancer’s causes and cures
  • Get access to lifesaving screenings and treatment

click here to read more about where the money goes.

thank you for taking your time to read this,as it is very important to me. I really hope that one day there will be a cure for cancer.

I would truly appreciate your online donation. Every dollar raised brings us one step closer to a world with less cancer and more birthdays and where no more lives are lost to the disease.

Thank you so much for your support. Together, we will finish the fight!

ALSO: please message me if you donate, because I want to thank you all personally and if you donate $5+ I have a little surprise for you :)))

You know what I’m seeing more clearly? I’ve caused my own pain by staying in spaces that didn’t serve me. I’ve literally put myself in a position to experience something that could be avoided. Now that I can see what I’ve been doing unconsciously, I’m certain I no longer want to participate in experiences that bring me pain. My consciousness is rising. That’s a powerful thing to recognize on a conscious level. Because you can either pursue or not pursue pain, but either way you can’t say you didn’t know. You’re conscious. You can see. You can’t unlearn what you can see.

#ColorsForDaniel - Bracelet Giveaway

Because of the difficult news earlier this weekend; to try and help lift the spirits of everyone during all of the involved communities during this difficult time, I thought why not try and do something personally for everyone who would want to participate. 

I am partnering with markiplieressentials​ to also give out 10 for another giveaway for their own blog – which will be posted after this one. (Not sure when, but they know I’m tagging them in this)

I’m not sure how many I’ll be doing; I’ll see how this turns out. I might cap it off at 500 bracelets unless I can get extra assistance or make a longer expected deadline: That information is still going to be debated; considering I do work a full time job and am one person.

just thought I’d add this cute manip that you can find here.

Stiles knows he’s in trouble when he invites the Beacon Hills Fire Department into his third grade classroom and he can’t stop staring at a certain scruffy fireman. But after the third graders take a field trip to the fire station and participate in the fire department’s holiday canned food drive, Stiles can’t ignore his crush any longer.

Stiles is a paramedic and Derek gets into a bike accident.

It’s kind of love at first sight.

Part 1 of Whatever Comes Our Way ‘verse

He’s too busy waxing poetic in his own head about the surly – dreamy – dude holding the sign for the hotel to notice Scott already making his way over. He pauses halfway when he realises Stiles isn’t following him, turning around and eyeing Stiles curiously, “Dude, come on, the guy’s waiting.”

Stiles snaps himself into action and pushes his cart carrying his suitcases over to where Scott’s introducing himself to Stiles’ future husband.

“-And this is Stiles,” Scott is saying just as Stiles arrives next to him.

“I’m Derek,” the guy replies gruffly, folding the sign up and tucking it under his arm. “I’ll be taking you back to the hotel.”

prompt: “There is a world where whenever someone fantasizes about you, you can physically feel it, but you have no idea who is thinking it about you.”

Stiles knows it’s wrong, but he’s been Fantasizing about Derek and he can’t bring himself to stop. Derek doesn’t know who’s taken an interest in him, but he’s enjoying it way more than he probably should.

Derek can’t believe he’s actually doing this: taking a selfie snap of the guy he’s been crushing on for weeks to prove to Danny that one, yes, he really does exist, and two, he really is that hot and thus he is totally justified in being too scared to make a move.

Or you know, even talk to the guy outside of the class they share.

In his defense, this isn’t just any guy. This THE guy. Hot Nerd. The utterly adorable but still somehow insanely sexy freshman in his twentieth century American Lit class who he’s been lusting over since the first day of the semester. If there were ever a time for him to be that person who tries to be subtle while taking snaps of other people, this is it.

Inspired by this super cute fanart by prettiestalpha.

Part 1 of the Hot Nerd Alert series

Stiles always knew finding a mate would be hard for him. He’s not bright and beautiful like Lydia, or stong like Danny or adorable like Scott.

He was just Stiles, ADHD riddled fox kid who loved to draw.

Derek Hale was everything, popular, strong, smart and gorgeous.

They get put together on an English assignment and it doesn’t go at all like Stiles expects.

31/M/New York. Rich, lays in bed all day, likes to read (aka Derek Hale, son of an Oscar winning actress, brother of one obnoxious reality star and one rebellious fashion designer, hates the paparazzi so much he’s a recluse)

26/M/California. Boring office job, likes to read (aka Stiles Stilinski, co-owner of a 100 acre organic farm with his dad and two best friends, writer of obits for a newspaper, has absolutely no life)

Or, where Derek and Stiles meet online, and Stiles has no clue Derek’s part of a famous family.

Based on a truly ridiculous conversation with Kalpurna about a hypothetical Stilinski Twins situation that ended up sounding something like:

“FUUUUUUCK, is it a sweet valley high situation where Stiles is very aware that his twin is way more attractive and confident than he is, EVEN THOUGH THEY’RE IDENTICAL, and he always ends up with the hotter significant others and more friends and Stiles guesses that’s why he’s attracted to the pack at first, because it’s something that’s just his, not his twin’s too. But of course, Stiles’s twin gets bit and now he’s part of Derek’s pack, and Derek doesn’t snap at him like he snaps at Stiles, never slams him into things, fucking FIGURES, STILES’S TWIN GETS EVERYTHIIIIIIIING.”

Kalpurna/good ideas OTP.

Stiles Stilinski is the long-suffering assistant of Derek Hale, editor extraordinaire. Also jackass extraordinaire.

The Proposal AU where Stiles has to get engaged to his terrifying boss Derek in order to prevent him being deported. And somehow has to persuade his family that they’re really in a relationship (stop laughing, Scott). Difficult doesn’t even cover it.

Derek and Stiles are the most typical combo of nerd plus geek two teenage boys could be; and as stereotypical as they could ever get, they’re each other’s only friend. That usually doesn’t bother Stiles much, Derek is the best best friend he could ever hope to have, but sometimes when he thinks about his fate of possibly not having his first kiss until college, he starts wishing he had a few more friends—or at least more people who were a bit more interested in him other than when they need to copy his notes.

In a fit of curiosity about how kissing feels like, Stiles proposes Derek that they each be the other’s first kiss—strictly platonic, of course. But afterwards, Stiles can’t stop noticing how hot Derek is, can’t stop thinking about kissing and touching him.

OR

The five times Derek and Stiles “fake” kiss and one time they take things further.

One of Stiles’ favorite things about life is Derek Hale’s food blog. He never expects to meet the man in person.

~

“Derek,” he says again, and the name feels very strange on his tongue. “You don’t mean Derek Hale.”

His professor’s eyebrows reach up, eyes widening. “You read his blog?”

“Uh. Worship. Would be a better more descriptive word. That is Derek Hale?”

Jimmy chuckles. “Good-looking guy, huh?”

“You mean to tell me the Food Network hasn’t snatched him up to dethrone everyone else from daytime TV.”

Jimmy smiles a small private smile. “I don’t think TV is his medium.”

Stiles raises an eyebrow. “Shy?”

The man laughs heartily at that. “No, I wouldn’t say that. He just has particular forms of expression, like eyebrows and chili powder.”

In which brainy freshman Stiles Stilinski wants star quarterback Derek Hale to join the math team, AKA math nerds in love.

Derek and Laura run a pure food store and coffeehouse. There’s this boy Stiles who’s a regular customer. He’s infuriating, of course, but there’s something about him.

Derek figured the Children of Villains support group would at least be full of outcasts like him. How wrong could he be?

“Did you say—” Stiles starts.

“What?” Derek growls.

“We’re not a couple!” they both retort in unison.

“We’re not together,” Stiles insists.

Lydia coughs pointedly. “An incident report filed by 87th Precinct Captain Erica Reyes. March twenty-fifth, eight p.m. Came back to the precinct to grab my coat, only to hear Stilinski banging his new boyfriend in the holding cell.”

“Top or bottom?” Stiles asks, off to Derek’s right.

“Bottom,” Derek says automatically, not really looking at him. “Wait, what?”

[TRANS] 150906 - “October 7th, Zhang Yixing’s Shanghai birthday party theme -- 10 years of youth, sincerely keeping a date”

He said, “Even if one day, you no longer like to listen to me sing, no longer like to watch me dance, and are no longer willing to be by my side; even if one day, I can no longer continue performing, no longer continue to make you happy, no longer continue to have your company. But I still hope, that on this day in 2015, I can leave a precious memory for you.

He, in 2005, participated in Hunan TV’s <Star Academy> and won 3rd place.

He, in 2008, became a trainee in Korea’s biggest entertainment company SM Entertainment.

He, in 2012, debuted as a member of EXO-M and EXO.

He, in 2015, became the first Chinese celebrity to gain the rights to develop independently in China, in SM’s 26 years of establishment. 

He is Zhang Yixing, on October 7 2015, Zhang Yixing’s “Understanding, Accompaniment, Anticipation” birthday concert will be held at the Shanghai Grand Stage. Understanding, is the affirmation from the beginning. Accompaniment, is the most beautiful memory; and Anticipation, is the truest promise. In this birthday party, Zhang Yixing will use 10 years of youth, to sincerely keep a date.

It is understood that at this birthday party, all ticket buyers will receive a birthday commemorative T-shirt personally designed by Zhang Yixing. Among those who bought the 1007RMB tickets, one audience member will be chosen to go on stage to interact closely with Zhang Yixing, and will receive an autographed commemorative T-shirt.

Thank you, for giving him the greatest courage and strength.

Thank you, for persisting in liking him for so long, he said he will work hard, work hard, and work harder.

Calling all South Park fandom members!

Introducing project La Resistance!

I am hoping to gather as many voices as possible to help recreate the infamous song from the movie Bigger, Longer and Uncut- and I need your help!

Both solos and group parts will be available, so depending on your ability and what you are comfortable with, I assure you there is a part for everyone. The more the merrier!

Solo Parts:

  • ·        Gregory (I might possibly do this part, not sure yet)
  • ·        Stan
  • ·        Kyle
  • ·        Sheila
  • ·        Satan
  • ·        Terrance and Philip

Company Parts: (We may have each person in the group sing all of these depending on how many people we get bc we need a lot of voices!)

  • ·        La Resistance Kids
  • ·        Blame Canada Moms

  • ·        Army Guys

If you are interested, please message me through tumblr messenger or through email, Cheylouwho@live.com. Let me know the part of the medley you would like to sing, your name, and if you would like a solo, an example of your voice. (Group parts do not need to submit an example but it is appreciated!)

After we have all the sign ups, you will submit your audio to me and I will do all the mixing. I don’t mind how you record as long as it is clear and in time with the instrumental :)

Thank you all so much for your participation (or reblogging if you choose not to), and VIVA LA RESISTANCE!

Tags Update

As most of you have probably figured out, the Tumblr update messed up the “tracking tags” option, which takes you to the general search format now instead of updating you on new content in your tracked tags.

If you are unhappy about this change…

Tumblr is gathering feedback on their updates. If you go to this page and type ‘help’ into the search engine, a ‘contact support’ link will pop up. I sent them a request this morning asking them to reinstate the old tags system and why I prefer it to the new one (now I no longer know which tags are updated until I enter them, and I can’t see full gifsets until I ‘reblog’ or click on them; this new format also loads much more slowly than the previous one).

I got a response informing me that my comments are going on an official feedback form and The Powers That Be will see them.

If you choose to participate, PLEASE be polite. The people monitoring the support may not be those who implemented the changes, and any abuse or foul language (as I’ve seen in the ‘tumblr updates’ tags) in this situation would not help the cause. It’s rude and unprofessional to ‘shoot the messenger.’

This may or may not mean the old system is reinstated, but the more people chime in the better our odds are of seeing the notifications return.

In the meantime, though there is no way to get notifications on your tracked tags, you CAN (for the time being) get the old format back, where new posts show up at the head of the page. It requires a manual hack in the url address – remove the /recent tag on the end, and change /search/ to /tagged/

For example

From this: https://www.tumblr.com/search/tudorsedit/recent

To this: https://www.tumblr.com/tagged/tudorsedit/

Hope that helps ease some of your frustration.

Please vote, please

This is a heads up. I am HUGELY into civic responsibility. Our government is supposed to be for the people by the people, but if the people don’t participate then we can’t be surprised when it no longer serves us. And my parents raised me that voting is not just a right. It is a privilege and a responsibility. Too many people suffered and died fighting for our right to vote (and are still fighting those laws designed to disenfranchise marginalized groups) for me to just sit back and complain without trying to DO something.

Yes, I realize that the candidates may not (who am I kidding, probably will not) stand for everything you believe in. Believe me, as a hardcore socialist I have never actually had a candidate I can wholeheartedly endorse. Because the candidates I would agree with just aren’t viable in our current two party system. So I’m left with a choice. I can vote for someone who I believe is less wrong or I can stand back and let a party that goes against everything I believe in take power.

You’re not making a stand or a point when you abstain. That’s not how it works in this kind of election. No one is watching how you DON’T vote. This isn’t a situation where abstaining shows how unqualified you think all the candidates are. Not voting is simply abdicating any of the power you have as a citizen. You can sign all the petitions and attend all the rallies you want, but if you don’t vote then politicians will disregard what you have to say. Because really, THEY DON’T CARE unless it affects whether or not they get into office.

And I know sometimes you think I’m one voter in 300 million people in the US. My vote doesn’t count. Not true. Because many of you may not know this, but the President is elected not on popular vote but by a vote of the electoral college (and I’m not blaming those of you who don’t know or don’t understand what that means because our schools suck and you can’t understand what you didn’t even know existed). The results of each state’s popular vote is sent into the state’s electoral college. Each state handles this part by their own rules, but except for Maine and Nebraska the state’s electoral votes are winner takes all. Depending on the state that can mean a swing of 10% of the electoral vote based on just a few people’s ballots.

If anyone remembers hearing about the election in 2000 with Gore winning the popular vote and Bush winning the electoral vote and thus Bush winning, that’s how it happened. And THAT’S why the recounts in Florida were such a big deal. Because those few votes ended up meaning the difference of 5% of the electoral vote.

And THIS is why it’s so important that everyone vote. Your vote can make a huge difference, especially in a swing state. You can vote the worst offenders out of office and slowly bring the government back under our control.

And this election is ESPECIALLY important. With no incumbent, that means there’s no clear front-runner. It’s going to be a close race (and you can bet on the Republicans being fired up after 8 years of a liberal black man and the possibility of 8 more years of a liberal woman). And more than that there are 4 Supreme Court positions up for nomination. And with a Republican White House and a Republican Congress, those positions would be a shoe-in. And Supreme Court nominations are for life. We’re looking at the possibility of forty years of anti-woman, homophobic, racist rulings. Forty. Years.

This is our responsibility. We’re always told to “vote our conscience” and my conscience says that even though my values are more in-line with radical socialist third party candidates, I’m going to be voting Democrat in the election. Because otherwise I KNOW that a Republican will win. And I don’t want THAT on my conscience.

(You can find information and help on voter registration at the rockthevote website here. Register as soon as possible since different states have different deadlines. If you are unable or simply don’t want to wait in line at the polls, you can request a postage-paid absentee ballot free of charge and vote from the comfort of your own home.)

GUYS. WE SHOULD DO A SECRET SANTA.

OFFICIAL POST HERE.

okay it’s like really late to start, but we could have it last until 2016! here’s my idea:

  • you let me know if you want to participate.
  • once i assign you your person, you send them asks on anon however frequently (once per day is ideal, but more is awesome). these can be compliments or legitimate questions. admit it, we all get happy when we see a message in our inbox.
  • on jan 1 or 2 (or this could go on longer), you reveal your identity!

does that sound lame? it might sound lame. i just got really excited when the idea popped into my head! like or reblog or message me if you’d be down for participating!

Zutara Week 1- Dragons

During their bedtime stories, Zuko once again learns that firebending is not just destructive, but can bring joy and light. He makes the fiery dragon dance for Hanabi’s amusement. Katara relishes in reliving their adventures when she tells their daughter about them (and maybe exaggerating just a little bit…)

Sorry, this is super crappy and hurried but I did want to submit something because I really want to participate in ZK week. (The longer I look at it the more I hate it, so I’ll just throw it out there before I chicken out.)

I have sketches for all prompts, but I have a dragon of my own to face this week so I hope I’ll manage to upload them. Probably won’t have access to a scanner or Photoshop in the next few days. In the worst case I’ll just upload a phone picture of my sketch- I’ll work them out later, for now I just want to prove that I do participate!

Prepare for lots of Mom!tara and Dad!ko with my OC steambaby Hanabi, because they give me feels.

The betting among your friends got out of control really fast.

You and Seth had been hanging out with the usual suspects: Roman, Dean, Sasha, Charlotte, Becky, Cesaro, Kevin and the newly arrived Finn at the bar one night. Long story short, Kevin had started betting Cesaro that he could do more of something…you weren’t too sure of that because you were half listening because Seth had you a bit distracted with his hand caressing your upper thigh.

That one bet brought on one more bet and then another…until you and Seth were brought into the equation because of your lack of participation.

“So, Y/N, what should you and Seth bet?” Sasha asked, catching your attention.

“I know what they should bet.” Dean replied, devilish smirk on his face.
