that makes it all the more important that we remember

Thoughts on RebelCaptain

So I’ve been spending a lot of time thinking about Rogue One (hasn’t everyone?!?!?), specifically why the ending is so satisfying despite the heartbreak. I fully agree with everyone that is saying how Jyn and Cassian’s hug on the beach is beautiful and perfect because it represents the loss of potential while also still demonstrating the importance of always having hope. But I think it’s more than that. I think part of what makes that moment so satisfying to watch is that, ultimately, isn’t that how we all want to go? Knowing that we may not be remembered for long, but also knowing that you’ve done something great and meaningful with your life. And in our last moments we are not alone, but rather in the company of someone we love and who loves us in return. I wanted so badly for them to have more time together, but they did get to spend the rest of their lives together and in love, knowing that what they accomplished mattered. We didn’t get to hear the question “Are you with me.” and the answer “All the way.” We got to see it.

Everyone’s gay jokes about Victurri are funny and all and we’re all thrilled a homosexual ship is actually canon and that Yuuri is out, but I’m pretty sure Yuuri himself is bi, not just gay

They make it pretty clear he is attracted to Yuu chan as well as Victor and always has been, (he’s just more so attracted to Victor specifically than her).

I wouldn’t say anything cuz it’s none of my business as a straight person how anyone interprets these characters, but my friend has told me that bi erasure is a real concern of hers and so I think that’s an important aspect to remember… and it doesn’t hurt the ship to remember it.

Why is Hiddles having an orgasm in our kitchen?

This is what my husband asked me today.

I feel the need to explain;

Many many moons ago i installed Sound Cloud onto my tablet, more than likely to listen to something Hiddleston related, I can’t honestly remember why, what or when. Anyway, time goes on, and the tablet has now been passed onto my toddler Superpup so he can play the Duplo Lego apps and watch BBC iplayer cartoons. He’s getting the hang of scrolling through the apps (we had removed all the ‘important’ ones), and tapping on the ones that are left.

So i am making lunch, hubby is playing with his phone as Superpup is playing on the tablet. Then the happy go lucky cartoon music stops;

“Oh… yes…. (sexual groan)… (heavy breathing)”

I look at hubby. Hubby looks at me. Superpup looks very confused at why Bing the Bunny is no longer making cookies and instead there is a blank screen with someone making these *funny* noises. 

“Oh my darling…. (more sexual groans)…”

Hubby frowns;

“What the FUCK have you got on this tablet?”

“I don’t know” My argument is interspersed with Mr Hiddleston reaching his peak; “Must be something old” i cry out, waving the mayonnaise knife around in an attempt to get Hubby to put his phone down and shut off the orgasm noises.

He presses all the buttons, yet still the orgasm is happening. Shuts the app, more orgasm. Fuck we even put it into silent mode; still more orgasm (seriously do his orgasms last that long in real life???), finally, we switch the damn thing off, full power down, and finally it fucking stops. Literally. No more orgasm.

I look at Superpup. Superpup looks at his dad. Hubs looks at me;

“Perhaps we should uninstall Sound Cloud?”

“Yeah, good idea”

He turns the tablet back on, it powers up and we put the pin number in…

“Oh darling… OH YES…. COME FOR ME”

And that is how we had to format our tablet.

psst widowtracer

ythlgjfakgla;` yes I’m love you Em thank you for this

Who asks the other on dates: Tracer.

Who is the bigger cuddler: Widomaker, maybe. I like to think that she’s actually very clingy and loves cuddling when the two of them are alone.

Who initiates holding hands more often: Tracer.

Who remembers anniversaries: Widow probably has all the important dates noted somewhere tbh.

Who is more possessive: As I said above, Widow’s clingy as heck.

Who gets more jealous: It starts with a L and ends with an A. Lucina? Wait what? No, I meant Lena.

Who is more protective: Widow for sure.

Who is more likely to cheat: Neither of them?

Who initiates sexy times the most: I think we all now the answer. Amélie.

Who dislikes PDA the most: Definitely Amélie. She likes cuddles and kisses except it makes her feel odd when there are people around.

Who kills the spider: They don’t. Widow grabs it and brings it outside - if it’s summer, and during winter they leave it be bc there’s no way they’ll put it outside to freeze and die.

Who asks the the other to marry them: Tracer, probably in the least romantic way possible - I mean, as long as the point gets across, it’s fine, right?

Who buys the other flowers or gifts: Widow. And Tracer’s always like “oh you really shouldn’t have.” especially when she gets flowers because she has no idea how to keep them alive.

Who would bring up possibly having kids: Tracer. “Hey Amé, I think we’d make cute babies.” “Lena pls be more serious with this.” 

Who is more nervous to meet the parents: Wait are their parents even still alive though? If so, I’d assume Tracer.

Who sleeps on the couch when the other is angry: Tracer.

Who tries to make up first after arguments: Lena because Amélie’s grumpy ass will have trouble admitting that she might have been in the wrong.

Who tells the other they love them more often: Lena.

Ask meme: send me a ship and I’ll tell you…

The important thing to remember about this though: don’t antagonize others. The more it goes on, the more it becomes about flinging mud and insults. We’re not here for that.

In all honesty, a tag isn’t that big of a deal. We’re giving ourselves other reasons, that TFP is the last series-specific TF tag, that it’s unfair to make a large section of a larger fandom create another tag…

No, it’s about the disrespect. We’ve been told to scram from a tag we’ve used for 6 years, going on 7. As a friend said before, the Star Wars fandom didn’t kick us out, it just happened. The franchise itself is also, y’know, 7 years older than Transformers and is a much, much larger cultural, worldwide phenomenon.

What the Sherlock fandom did differently is directly shunt us out of the tag. Or at least, try to. They gave no hints of trying to limit the postings in that tag (save for one individual I can recall) and really didn’t appear to empathize with us. Whereas you know if some other fandom tried to take a Sherlock episode tag, there’d be rioting.

The core of the matter is about respect. The response to “oh there’s a lot of robots here huh?” wasn’t why, but “nah let’s trample over it, it doesn’t really matter and they’re smaller.”

I’m not asking anyone who doesn’t want to participate to participate. But this is the semantics and my response is to have fun. Not to insult, not to degrade, but explain the thoughts we - and I - may not have recognized at first and to spread some fun. Can’t laugh and be pissed off at the same time, right?

To everyone in the TFP fandom: do not send hate. Do not get nasty about this. Do not antagonize, do not provoke, do not be condescending. We are here to show our love of a series, show how it impacted us, and prove that we are relevant.

“For me the task is kinda be more involved and see how I can help, even if it’s just I don’t know, putting a smile on someone’s face or answering some questions or making somebody feel better. Listen, we’re all crazy anxious people, it doesn’t matter if I’m sitting here and you’re there. I’m awkward, I get nervous, I get panic attacks, I get crazy, depression. I mean it’s the world we live in. I think it’s important that we all remember that at the end of the day we’re just the same person [..] So, my job, I think, is to always just try to remain as honest as I can and just, I don’t know, help in some way.” - Sebastian on life goals (source)

INFORMATION FOR BEGINNERS SERIES, HOW TO MEDITATE, 10 TIPS

How to Meditate: 10 Important Tips

Why meditate?

On one level, meditation is a tool.

It can help combat stress, fosters physical health, helps with chronic pain, can make you sleep better, feel happier, be more peaceful, as well as be more present.

But on a deeper level, meditation is a doorway into the unknown. It can help us get a sense of the mystery of who we are.

When you start meditating, you’ll notice how unruly the mind is.

I remember being quite shocked by this!

At first, my mind was all over the place.

Profound thoughts about my past or future jostled with mundane thought clips about what groceries I needed to buy. Some time afterwards I would come too and notice that I had spend 15 minutes running a painful memory over and over.

It was like sitting in a crazy cinema!

So, if you’re starting out with meditation, please don’t beat yourself up about your wild mind. It is a natural condition. In time you will learn to work kindly with the barrage of thoughts and you will find some clarity and peacefulness.

Here are some simple tips on how to meditate. .

1. Posture

Whether you sit on a chair or cross-legged on the floor, make sure that your spine is upright with head up. If you are slumped your mind will drift. Mind and body are intertwined. If your body is well-balanced, your mind will also be in balance. To straighten up, imagine that your head is touching the sky.

2. Eyes

Try and keep you eyes open. Open eyes allow you to be more present. Just lower your eyes and let your gaze be soft. If you close your eyes you will be more likely to drift away on thoughts and stories. However, it’s important to do what is comfortable for you. Some people find closing their eyes much more effective. It’s good to experiment and see what feels best for you.

2. Focus

In ordinary consciousness we are hardly ever present. For example, sometimes we drive the car on autopilot while being preoccupied with thoughts. Suddenly we arrive at our destination and don’t remember anything about the drive!

So, meditation is a wonderful way of waking up to our life. Otherwise we miss most of our experiences because we are somewhere else in our mind! Let’s take a look at what focus is. In ordinary life, we tend to equate focus with concentration. That’s like using the mind like a concentrated beam of light. But in meditation, that kind of mind isn’t helpful. It’s too sharp and edgy. To focus in meditation means to pay soft attention to whatever you place in the centre of awareness. I suggest using the breath as a focus. It’s like a natural door that connects ‘inside’ and ‘outside’. Zen Master Toni Packer says:

Attention comes from nowhere. It has no cause. It belongs to no one

3. The breath

Paying attention to the breath is a great way to anchor yourself in the present moment. Notice your breath streaming in and out. There’s no need to regulate the breath – just let it be natural.

4. Counting you breath

If you are having difficulties settling, you can try counting the breath – which is an ancient meditation practice. On your outbreath, silently count “one”, then “two”, and up to “four”. Then return to “one”. Whenever you notice your thoughts have strayed far away or you find yourself counting “thirty-three”, simply return to “one”. In this way, “one” is like coming home to the present moment. It’s good to return without a backward glance.

5. Thoughts

When you notice thoughts, gently let them go by returning yous focus to the breath. Don’t try to stop thoughts; this will just make you feel agitated. Imagine that they are unwelcome visitors at your door: acknowledge their presence and politely ask them to leave. Then shine the soft light of your attention on your breath.

6. Emotions

It’s difficult to settle into meditation if you are struggling with strong emotions. This is because some emotions tend to breed stories in the mind. Especially anger, shame and fear create stories that repeat over and over in the mind. Anger and shame make us keep looking at past events of the past. Fear looks at the future with stories that start with, “What if…”

The way to deal with strong emotions in meditation is to focus on the body feelings that accompany the emotion. For example, this could be the tight band of fear around the chest or the hot roiling of anger in the belly. Let go of the stories and refocus on your body. In this way you are honouring your emotions but not becoming entangled in stories.

7. Silence

Silence is healing. I know that there are is a lot of ‘meditation music’ around, but nothing beats simple silence. Otherwise the music or sounds on the tape just drown out the chatter in your mind. When we sit in silence we actually get to experience what our mind is doing. There is steadiness and calmness that comes from sitting in silence. In time outer and inner silence meet and you come to rest in the moment.

8. Length

Start with 10 minutes and only sit longer if you feel the length is too short. Don’t force yourself to meditate longer if you are not ready to do that. In time you might like to extend your meditation to 25 minutes. That’s a length that allows you to settle your mind without causing too much stress on your body. Most importantly, shrug off any ‘shoulds’. Some people enjoy sitting for an hour at a time. Others find that they can’t sit longer than 10 minutes. Do what feels right for you!

9. Place

It’s lovely to create a special place to sit. You can even make a shrine or an altar that you can face when you sit in meditation. You might like to place a candle on your altar and objects that have meaning to you. It’s lovely to find objects for your altar as you walk. Maybe you find stones, or seashells, or flowers that speak to you.

10. Enjoyment

Most of all, it’s important to enjoy meditation. You might like to try sitting with a hint of a smile. Be kind to yourself. Start sitting just a little each day.

I think it’s really funny when people don’t think that representation is important because when I was younger (even until recently) I used to base all my beauty standard on white people standards. Like, 8 years old me thought that I needed to be white for people to think I was beautiful or for people to like me. I remember when I was in 6th grade we were studying Africa and how people had skin products to make their skin whiter and I was like ; Oh? Should I take it as well? And my dudes, this is not normal. I’m happy I learned to love my skin color y’all

That explanation about Jared's daughter and Constance was amazing. I love my mom but I kind of wish she was more like that. She doesn't really let me do much on my own, which is kinda understandable since I'm still a teenager. Like I wanna dye my hair, she said not til I'm 18. I wanna hair cut? She said no, she wants to keep my hair long. I asked her to let me make my own mistakes, but she said not til I'm 18. I just wish I was more free.

I understand how you feel, it’s important to remember that with stuff like that it’s ususally rooted in parents just wanting to protect us and make sure we don’t do anything we regret. Even with something so simple as dying our hair. Remember there is good and bad in all of it. Jared’s mom was very much a free spirit and let them do what they want, but jared also says how he is wasn’t the best childhood constantly moving around with the hippie movement and living in cars and he got very into drugs at one point. So freedom for teenagers can go a little too far ass well as not giving them freedom. Just keep in mind it’s not malicious what you’re mom is doing, it comes from the heart :)

anonymous asked:

Her character is relevant in the books because of "fire and blood" storyline. They erased it.They killed her brothers,destroyed her house. House Martell is gone in the show. How far they can go and be more racist than this to them is hard to answer.

Yeah!
I think the series destroyed House Martell after realize that Oberyn made a huge sucess in the fandom, maybe they thought that would make a problem, Oberyn died to avenge his sister and nephews, that would be a problem to make Jon the adored king they wanted. So, “let’s give no importance to house Martell at all, people wont remember Elia and her babies and will be ready for Rhaegar and Lyanna love”

Im happy we have the books

Let me be the man who loves you.

There are some things in life. Which we will one day forget, because we think that those small things aren’t important. But do you know, it’s those little moments which reminds us of the person we were in the past.

She was by my side, taking care of me. She may not know, how important her support mean to me.

“You are the best”

She brought me the sound of laughter, of crying, of the shouting when we fight. Most of all, she’s the one who can make me say “I’m sorry” many times, all spoken wholeheartedly.

Although she wears me out. She added colours to my life, made it more fun. She filled my world with sounds other than just music.

It’s not just you understanding me. It’s not just you who remember every detail. I remember too.

I’ll set your heart free again. Without any conditions.

Hello Everybody!

All this talk about the last episode of Sherlock is making me quite nervous so I’ll be less online this week till Monday. 

If I write new content I’ll post a link to it here but don’t panic if I don’t answer comments or questions. I’m just taking a teeny, tiny break cause it’s too much too handle right now and it doesn’t feel like just a show anymore but more something of national importance. 

I hope we can all enjoy the last episode and let’s also remember if it doesn’t go our way ( and for me I’m sure I won’t get my happy ending) we still have fanfiction and fanart and we will get through this. 

Let’s also remember to be kind to each other and not start new wars. 

I’ll see you all later. Have a great week/weekend!


Ps; there also won’t be a weekly update this week.

  • For every ✍ I get in my inbox, I will reveal a pet peeve I have about rp 

I’M GETTING SICK AND TIRED OF PEOPLE THINKING THAT WE ARE SUPER HUMANS THAT CAN READ AND REMEMBER EVERYONES RULES THAT WE PLAY WITH.

Rule sticklers are fine, whatever, be pompous about how important your rules are. But also know that it’s not a BAD thing to gently tell someone when they’ve broken a rule instead of making a call out post/being an asshole.

Seriously, when you RP with like more than 5 people, it’s ridiculous to be expected to memorize all sets of their rules at one time.

INTP problems

In school, one thing that always really annoyed me was when someone would ask a question and the teacher would be like “Oh you don’t need to know that for the course”.

We’re supposed to be here to learn. I don’t care about the course. I want to learn. And you’re refusing to teach me because a piece of paper at the end of the year is more important than the gain of knowledge.

Not to mention that knowing all the details helps to build a larger picture and actually, for me at least, makes the relevant facts much easier to remember.

if you are currently binding

hold your arms above you head and take a biiiig deep breath!!! hold it for three seconds, then breathe out. repeat this a few times and then lower your arms.

remember to sit up straight and not slouch, and to take regular breaks from binding! staying safe is always so much more important than relieving dysphoria, not matter how bad it gets. we love all our trans men followers, stay safe and make sure to take your binder off IMMEDIATELY if you experience bad chest, rib to back pain whilst binding!
