the future is going to be great

anonymous asked:

Hey hailey... I need advice... I just started getting into a really bad habit everyone knows as cutting and... I really need someone like you to talk me out of it... I just like how it feels, I'm not depressed or anything... I just think it feels nice...

Welp buddy, from what it sounds like, you’ve got a habit. It could lead to health issues in the future, so I’m going to tell you to find something else to focus on. A habit is hard to get rid of, but you should find a replacement. Any sports or hobbies would do great! And to maybe help stop your bad habit, make yourself do something everytime you even think about it. Maybe doing so many push-ups or sit ups, maybe you go for a 15 minute run, anything that makes you neglect that bad habit. I hope this was helpful to you bud.

I knew one of these supports was going to be more personal than the ones I’ve written before. It did not turn out to be the one I was expecting though and I shall say no more for politeness’ sake.

Anyway here’s the Nyx/Caeldori C-A and if the LuciSev elements in this won’t fly, I’ve also written a version without them. I think ideally, since this mod loves callbacks, I’d want a canon romance from a previous game mentioned in the support. Sadly, I’ve only played Awakening and Fates. If someone has an idea about something that would fit and would be willing to help me rewrite it in, I’m Blackie62 in the Discord.

And also here’s the Sumia/Severa C-A.

Hi tay!! I just wanted to update you on my life a little bit!!
I started college last month, I’m currently in the nursing program at my dream school and so far it’s been challenging, but wonderful! Adjusting to living away from home has been great, although I do miss my family of course. I’m so happy you decided to release an album this year because I know it’s going to help me through every emotion I feel along this crazy adventure. Thank you for always having my back and loving me as much as I love you. I cannot wait to see what the future holds, for both of us. I’m so proud of you! Miss you so much 💓
Love,
Baby tay

Nine ways to find the perfect bra

1. Manage expectations before you set out. If you are the kind of person who will try on two hundred awful bras and come home without one and hating humanity, consider whether it is possible that you already own the perfect bra. Often this can be achieved with only a small redefinition of the words ‘perfect’ or ‘bra’.
2. If you do lots of sports, try a sports bra. If you live on a balcony, try a balcony bra. If you are falling off a cliff, try a plunge bra. In general, your bra will be much happier if you keep it in its natural habitat.
3. Check if the bra is perfectly supportive. A good bra should listen thoughtfully to all your problems. A really good bra should not only listen but also phone for backup when you are hemmed in by Ukrainian mobsters on the roof of the ruined embassy at night. Finding this bra may require accepting the starring role in a film of dubious quality, but it will be worth it in the end.
4. Can you undo the bra with one hand? Can anyone undo the bra with one hand? What about two hands? Three? Can anyone take off the bra at all? Are its complexities within the wit of humankind to comprehend? If the answer to all these questions is no, buy the bra. You probably shouldn’t try wearing it, but it may be useful to keep valuables in.
5. Get measured first. Make sure to include all relevant quantities. For example, a bra which is not travelling at the same velocity as you is not very useful, and a bra with a significantly different temperature to you may be uncomfortable or on fire. Never purchase a bra that is on fire.
6. Consider that the perfect bra for one occasion may not be the perfect bra for another. If you are stranded on a desert island, that nipple-chafing mesh will be super-useful for catching fish. Consider investing in that bra with too much padding and/or too large a cup size if you believe that you might be ejected from an aircraft without a parachute at any time soon.
7. If you are feeding a baby, a bra that a baby can eat may be useful. Try materials such as woven rice or mashed banana.
8. If that one great once-in-the-Universe all-purpose bra is a requirement, it is quite likely that it belongs to someone else or exists only in the past or future. That does not mean obtaining it is impossible: far from it! You may need to become an intercontinental time-travelling space pirate, however.
9. Above all, consider what you want the bra for. Too many people go bra shopping with a limited, breast-centric worldview. This is understandable, but unambitious. It is not unreasonable to expect the perfect bra to be one that has saved lives, righted wrongs or made significant academic advances possible. For example, a planet-spanning bra towed by forty thousand space cruisers to bring Earth’s orbit in line with that of Mars to allow for the final evacuation of the human race would surely be better than that cute red one.

Some things you can keep track of as a witch:

🌙 Your moon cycle (also known as your period). If you’re into the self-love side of witchcraft and want to focus more on your body and it’s wants and needs, you might want to think about keeping track of your period. You can then create spells, rituals and meditations that correspond with the moon phase and day(s) that you’re menstruating. <— this is obviously for those that are menstruating.

🌻 Your garden. If you have a garden (even if it’s just 3 little baby herb plants in your window, hey a garden is a garden) keep track of how well your plants or herbs are doing. Write down when you water them, how much sunlight (and moonlight, if that’s your thing) they got. You could even write down any emotional vibes you’re getting from your garden. 

🔮 Your spells and rituals. Keeping track of your spells doesn’t just help you remember when you did what spell and what it was for, but it also allows you to go back and write in how well that spell worked out for you. And if it worked out well, because you kept track of it, you’ll know how to use it again in the future.

💰 Witchy buys. This is important if, like me, you tend to do a little bit of overspending on all the witchy supplies. But since I started to keep track of what I’m buying, using and not using, I’ve saved a ton of money on unnecessary things.

🙏 Gratitude. Keep a growing list of all the things you’re grateful for. It’s great to look back on in the future and it helps you keep perspective of your own life and spiritual journey.

🍵 Your tea. Okay, this is just something I do but I love to keep track of all the different teas I try. I think tea is considered a very witchy drink and therefore some of us are a little more serious about our tea drinking lol. But I just love taping in the little packaging, that my tea came in, into my journal and writing a little bit about it and how it made me feel and what it made me think about.

🌦️ The weather. This is important, to me, because I believe the weather can affect us and how we feel, think and behave. I like to have a record of what the weather was like when I casted a spell, did a ritual or did a reading so I can go back later and see if I feel that might have affected the outcomes.

“Dylan adores Jackson, he supports him and encourages him with his art, Jackson in return encourages Dylan to play more piano. They get each other and I believe they connect on a spiritual level, sure they definitely find each other hot (obviously, lol), but it’s so much more than that. They make such a good couple because although different they are a great match, they listen to each other, they’re there for each other. It’s such an amazing and beautiful relationship. Aaron was more puppy love, and although cute this relationship is healthier, more adult and Dylan treats Jackson way better than Aaron ever did. I don’t use the word soulmates a lot, I don’t know if Dylan and Jackson are, but it kinda seems like it sometimes. I wonder a bit about their future though, because of the long distance thing and Dylan going to college. Even if Jackson ends up moving to NY they will have very different experiences. I hope it’ll work out for them though, I really do. They make such a cute couple, it’s nice to see young people in love.”

blue’s voltron bayard ability being unlocked + consequences?

i think that allura is going to unlock blue’s bayard ability in voltron and that it’s going to be a sort of catalyst for lance’s insecurities that we’ve been watching build up.

first off, i’d like to say that allura is an excellent paladin, progressing much MUCH faster than any of the other paladins we’ve seen. even with the rough start, she really is turning out to be her father’s daughter– she unlocked blue’s freeze ray AND the sonic amplifier in ONE episode, when it’s taken everyone else the course of two seasons to unlock these lion specific abilities. technically, she’s learning so fast it’s almost scary. i mean, imagine if the rest of the paladins had picked up their lions abilities this quick?

allura is quite literally the most naturally talented paladin we’ve seen so far, with a great connection to blue, and it’s clearly noticeable. as a matter of fact, allura’s excellence + (clone?) shiro’s return is why we have this room scene with lance and keith, where lance even points out what a great job allura is doing.

furthermore, we see keith agree with lance here, going “that’s true.” i’m pretty sure that lance is directly foreshadowing future seasons in this scene here. we’ve seen keith unlock voltron’s sword, pidge unlock voltron’s shield, hunk unlock the shoulder canon, and shiro unlock voltron’s wings– but we have yet to see the physical manifestation of the blue lion in voltron. it’s almost like a secret? we didn’t even see blue’s ability in the flashback with the original paladins, when we saw the red lion’s sword, green lion’s shield, and the black lions wings being put to use. so why haven’t we, by the third season, seen what the blue lion can do?

because allura, our fastest progressing paladin, will be the one to unlock it! which is GREAT, i’m excited and already super proud of her, but i think that there WILL be consequences to this. namely, lance’s reaction to not being the one to unlock blue’s ability. as pointed out in this great post, lance and keith’s conversation here was a good attempt at communication, but overall, a failure. lance didn’t leave that interaction with any of his insecurities/concerns actually assuaged– he still thinks that he’s the least capable “soldier” out of the paladins and i think that when allura unlocks the blue lion’s next ability this scene here is seriously gonna come back to bite us. we’ve been receiving hints of lance’s personal doubts and insecurities for awhile and i think that this is where we’re gonna see lance finally hit his boiling point and decide that he’s not fit to be a paladin.

seeing as how the clone shiro theories are turning out pretty solid, and that we saw pidge by herself (going after matt?) in the japanese s3/4 trailer, i think that lance’s insecurities peaking and him deciding to take some sort of drastic action is going to be one of many events that’s gonna lead to team voltron falling apart in future seasons…. hopefully, only briefly.

Guess who was going through the Langst tag and got inspired and sad? 

Me. 

  • So Lance and Keith were friends in high school, but fell out of touch when Keith moved away for college. 
  • Half a year later, Keith moved back home after deciding college wasn’t for him and dropping out. Lance was thrilled that one of his friends had moved back and reached out to his old friend to reconnect. Keith agreed and they went out to a bar together. 
    • They woke up in bed together the next morning with horrible hangovers and evidence of last night’s deeds dried on the sheets. 
  • Keith tells Lance that he doesn’t do relationships but that the sex was amazing and he would be up for it again if Lance was. 
    • Poor, pinning Lance has had feelings for Keith since high school. He figures that a friend’s with benefits relationship is the best he was ever going to get with Keith and agrees. 
    • It becomes apparent that Keith was more interested in the Benefits part of their agreement very quickly. Sex was soon all he wanted from Lance, no hanging out, no talking, nothing but a few hours in bed. 
  • Lance is deeply hurt, feeling like he has lost one of his best friends all over again. He keeps trying to repair the friendship that he thinks he’s at fault for breaking, but nothings working. 
    • If he invites Keith over for pizza and a movie, Keith thinks it’s a booty call. They have sex and then Keith’s gone. 
    • If he asks Keith to go to a bar or club with him, Keith gets handsy and they end up fooling around in one of their cars and then Keith goes home. 
  • Lance is at the end of his rope and pulling his hair out in frustration. Then he finds out that he isn’t the only one Keith has been sleeping with. Turns out Keith’s got a new guy in his bed every other night. 
  • Lance is heartbroken. He had thought he was the only one. He feels used. It’s like he doesn’t even know Keith anymore. He’s lost Keith.
    • He can’t do it anymore. He can’t keep giving and giving himself to Keith for nothing.
    • He starts ignoring calls and texts from Keith. 
    • Hunk and Pidge worry and ask if he’s alright, but he just smiles and waves away their worries. It’s hard for them to keep tabs on Lance when they have college classes and live in different states now, but they try their best.
    •  There are nights when he’s tempted to call Keith and invite him over because his bed is way to empty and he misses Keith like nothing else, but he manages.
  • Its around this time that his friend from college, Allura, introduces him to her friend since childhood, Lotor.
  • Lotor is hands down the most gorgeous guy Lance has ever seen. He was charming and just as flirty as Lance and laughed at his jokes. The two hit it off right away and Allura is so fucking smug because she’s been trying to set the two up for months.
    • They begin dating and Lance is honestly in awe of his boyfriend. Lotor seems perfect. Wealthy, handsome, charming, and loving. Lance is head over heels, stupidly in love.
  • Then Keith comes over to his apartment one night.
    • Keith asks him where he had been and why Lance hasn’t been answering his texts- he was worried!
    • Lance has no time for this. He’s blunt and harsh and tells Keith to go to someone else for sex, because Lance is dating someone now.
    • Keith goes pale. He tries to ask something, but keeps stuttering and restarting. Finally, he pushes past Lance and runs out of the apartment, leaving a confused Lance behind.
  • Things are going great with Lotor. Lance falls fast and hard and Lotor is right there with him. Lotor talks about Lance moving in with him and about their future together. Lance is so happy about the prospect of a future that he doesn’t stop to wonder if its what he really wants with Lotor.
  • Weeks after Keith’s last visit, he comes back drunk at 4 in the morning.
    • Lance lets him in, fully intending to call a taxi to take him home, but Keith has other plans. He’s throwing himself at Lance within minutes, asking him for just one more time.
    • Lance aint having that. Nope. It is not a thing that is happening.
    • Then Keith starts to cry. He keeps saying that he’s sorry and that he needs Lance and that he doesn’t care that Lance loves someone else. Says that he needs Lance, that he loves-
    • “Lance?” Lotor comes out of Lance’s bedroom still half asleep and hair a beautiful mess. He’s instantly awake when he sees Keith and his face goes dangerously blank. “Whats going on?”
    • Lance explains that he’s just calling a taxi to take Keith home, since he’s been drinking. Lotor’s face looses the blank look and he’s all sweet smiles and helpfulness again.
      • Keith curls up on Lance’s couch and tries not to cry.
    • After sending Keith home, Lance apologizes for waking up Lotor, but his boyfriend says he has nothing to be sorry for. Lance is sweet enough to help anyone, and Keith is in the wrong for taking advantage of that, that Lance did nothing wrong.
      • Lance is so lucky to have Lotor.
  • Keith wakes up to a text from Lance asking if he got home safe. Keith’s heart clenches, because he is so in love with Lance and he fucked up so badly.
    • He lies and pretends that he doesn’t remember going over to Lance’s place and humiliating himself because its easier.
  • The next day, Keith ventures out to get food and finds himself getting shoved into an alleyway between abandoned buildings and getting the shit kicked out of him.
    • He gets thrown around a bit, the wind knocked out of him, and a more then one bruise before he’s thrown to the ground.
    • Lotor and four girls are staring down at him once his head stops spinning.
  • Lotor tells Keith that if he tries to contact Lance again, the beating will be worse and a bone or two may be broken. Tells him that if he tries to tell Lance about this, Keith’s landlord will suddenly find a reason to evict him from his apartment. 
  • Doesn’t Keith realize that he’s going to ruin Lance? That he’ll drag Lance down with him if Keith keeps holding onto him? He tells Keith that Lance deserves better then a college drop out turned slut whose going no where in life.
    • Keith already knows all this, he doesn’t need to reminder.
  • Keith is left in the alley with a split lip and bruised ribs while Lotor and the girls drive off in a sports car more expensive then Keith’s student debt.


SO. I’m kinda half way through actually writing this as a fic…

Fleshing out the character.

[ For their first-ever campaign, I struck a deal with my players:  I’d create their characters and create a short backstory, but they could flesh out their character with any other backstory and future development they wanted. About four sessions in, our ranger Fen discovered that he had an existing conflict with a prominent NPC. The rest of the party didn’t take this news well. ]

Etune, the bard: What else aren’t you telling us? Are you a thief?

Fen: No, I told you, I left my last adventuring group because they were thieves!

Etune: Have you killed someone? I bet you killed someone.

Fen: … well, okay. I maybe killed someone from that last adventuring group.

The party: What?

Fen: He was a thief! I told him to return what he stole, and he didn’t. There was nothing I could do about it.

Kirahee, the rogue: Do they know you killed him? Are they after you? Are they going to come after us?

Fen: I mean, they don’t know where I am, but maybe? [ turning to me, out of character ] This is okay, right?

Me: [ frantically writing notes ] Oh no, this is great, keep going. I’m just making sure this haunts you in the future.

[ The other players were shocked and dismayed to discover that the murder wasn’t in his backstory but rather something he invented on the spot. ]

I want this post to be an introduction to the whole Mother of Pearl AU. I’ve been building the lore about them for a while now and I have a lot to share, so I will do it in parts. Today i’m gonna talk about some general stuff and differences between gems and moms. Let’s finally get this started!!

The Mothers are a race of magical sentient shells (I like to call them Momlluscs from the name ‘molluscs’) that originated on Homeworld, mirroring the Gems being a race of sentient rocks. They can be called an older cousin race to the Gems, as they both come from a natural magical occurrence that all originated in Homeworld’s waters.

Here’s some info on them in bullet points:

  • Long, LONG ago, the Mothers had a huge empire on Homeworld. They had advanced magic, rich culture, huge armies, they conquered lesser beings and used them as mounts and workforce, and that includes our Gems. Their culture spawned all of the seas and rivers on HW, but it all eventually fell apart. Nowadays nothing of their proud past remains, aside from echoes visible in gem magic and the gem nature itself.

[Image: bubbling, an example of mom magic that carried over to today.]

  • One of the biggest differences between Gems and Moms is the fact that all Mothers are partially organic creatures. Unlike the silica-based Gems, they are (mostly) calcium-and-carbon-based, making them ‘organic’ and ‘inorganic’ at the same time, much like the actual mother-of-pearl and molluscan shells.

  • Following this organic-inorganic idea I’ve decided that the mothers’ body that protrudes from their shells is made from magical flesh. It’s more similar to Steven’s body rather than the bodies of Gems which are made from hard light. It contains their organs and bleeds when harmed. When damaged, it retracts to the shell to heal, which is virtually identical to poofing. Most momlluscs have human shaped bodies with broad, long feet, however some classes have much more monstrous forms. Regardless, all of them have a shell (or a bone) & a mantle (a cloak made of skin) somewhere on their bodies as well as extendable membranes for swimming.

[Image: one of the classes of Moms. Shell location depends on the class but mantle can have some variance depending on species.]

  • The Gems primarily occupied the land and shores, while the Mothers lived mostly in the oceans, rivers and lakes. Because of their mainly underwater habitat they are very sensitive to light and used to crawl out mostly at night. Even today the Moms that still remain active often wear sunglasses or shield themselves from light as much as possible.

  • The Mothers are biologically immortal; they do not die of old age, but can get ill or heavily hurt and die. Damaging the shell won’t kill a Mother. It will be reconstructed slowly over time by her fleshy body. To kill a Mother it’s necessary to shatter her shell and kill the flesh body, although even then her conscious will remain in the shell, much like with shattered gems.

Some of their abilities are similar to the Gems’:

  • They can shapeshift and did it fairly often with the bottom part of their body when changing terrain (human legs for dry terrain and various mollusk parts for swimming in water).
  • When harmed, their body retracts to the shell to heal. It’s function is the same as poofing.
  • They can fuse.
  • They have various powers. They often have powerful elemental powers related to water and sand. Other powers include hypnosis, walking on walls, super speed, telepathy and various voice based powers.

…but there are important differences:

  • Their shells are always in the same spot, which depends on the species.
  • Some species are unable to summon a weapon. If they can, the weapon is always the same for the whole species.
  • They can retract their form into their shell at will.
  • The Mothers reproduce sexually. They are hermaphrodites. That means they grow and start their life as children.
  • They feel hunger and eat. In fact, some of them are cannibals!
  • And there’s of course their great unique ability: Pearl making.

  • The Mothers can eat pretty much anything, including each other. They don’t need to eat to survive, but they feel hunger if they don’t. Depending on what (or who) they eat, their abilities are affected, as the diet slightly influences the structure of their shell. It also influences the Pearls they produce.

I will go in depth on several topics from this post in future posts. I want to break down this stuff so it’s more digestible, plus it’s easier for me to plan releases this way. There’s a masterpost coming as well which will contain an index to all the mother-related stuff I’m posting!

“What’s it like?” Bittle asked one evening as they settled on Jack’s couch with their nightcaps: red wine for Bittle, chamomile tea for Jack. “Being bi?”

Jack chuckled. “That’s a complicated questions, Bits.”

“Oh, c’mon,” Bittle said, taking a small sip of the petite syrah Jack’s parents had sent them after Jack announced their relationship. “You’ve heard all my bellyachin’ about growing up gay in Georgia-” He was cut off momentarily by the beginnings of Jack’s protests, but waved him off. “Fine, my completely legitimate struggles. Better?”

Jack grinned and nodded. Bittle rolled his eyes fondly.

“But you rarely talk about your experiences. When did you know you weren’t straight? How did you realize you liked girls and boys? Was it harder or easier or just different being bi in Juniors?”

“You’ve thought about this a lot,” Jack said mildly, blowing at the steam rising from his mug.

“Of course I have,” Bittle said with an exasperated look. “I think about you a lot.”

Now that the special move(ish) event “The Battle For Mewni” finally aired, It’s arguably disappointing that we didn’t get to spend more time with Toffee, especially considering that the whole thing has been the climax to that incredible build-up that started back in the Season 1 finale. 

Since his introduction, the lizard turned out to be a very shady, but interesting character, a villain whose plan and motivations were shrouded in mystery. I was honestly looking forward to finally find out what he was truly seeking. However, as the fittingly-named “Toffee” episode premiered, it almost looked like the reptile was simply going after his finger and that everything turned out to be just an overcomplicated revenge plot that it’s honestly baffling it managed to work (for the most part -he’s dead, after all) in the first place.

And, yeah, the show didn’t really do a great job at educating us viewers on its universe, its magical themes, etc. Granted, Season 3 has just started and we’re overall halfway through the entire show (assuming that it doesn’t get even more Seasons after the fourth one), so we may get more answers in the future. But when the show’s villains endgame starts being confusing rather than mysterious, you know something wrong. Or… did it?

No need to re-introduce the character as well all know him already but, yeah, Toffee is not exactly your average boastful, bombastic villain (which is already impressive, given that it’s a Disney XD show we’re talking about here). Do not expect him to burst into an evil laughter (at best, he just giggles menacingly). He’s a very shady, serious character in an otherwise wacky animated series -which SVTFOE was to almost annoying levels at the time.

This “silent” character trait is possibly what made his endgame rather confusing to most of us. “He did all of this for his finger!” except, that, he didn’t, like at all. Losing his finger was a merely a problem that he turned into an opportunity, via some magical mumbo-jumbo, but we’ll get to that.

In “Mewnipendence Day”, perhaps (still) one of the biggest game-changing episodes of the entire series so far, Toffee is seen reading a history book about Mewni, its royals and the magic wand(s). He’s just casually reading it during the first half of the episode and the show makes sure that we see what he’s doing, going as far as giving to the book itself a relatively detailed cover and content (not “Gravity Falls” level to details, but it’s enough to tell what the book is actually about -which is important).

As I said earlier, Toffee is not a villain who gloats about his evil plan and on how fools the heroes have been because they didn’t see it coming. Therefore, neither the writers or the character itself educated us viewers on what the hell he’s doing. Not directly or all at once at least.

Fast-forward to “Toffee”, we find out that the reptile has been “bathing” into what seems to be the source of all magic, corrupting it in the process. While, pacing-wise, all of this came too fast and too abruptly, saying that Toffee’s goal was his finger is rather misleading. Albeit in a sloppy, rushed way, the cartoon clearly did show us what Toffee was doing this whole time, confirming our theories while also removing all of our doubts:

Given the context and the flashback a couple of episodes earlier, and a bunch of other dialogues scattered through almost two entire seasons, it is now clear that the lizard’s endgame was the destruction of all magic, the only thing that still kept Mewmans in power and, accordingly, oppressed the monsters. Neither the reptile or the show directly told us, but they gave us subtle (and not-so-subtle) hints about it since the first Season. All the clues were there: the history book, the tapestry, Buff Frog’s line about Toffee knowing about Star and not liking her magic, and a bunch of other things. The series showed us Toffee’s plot and his Season-long effects on the show’s universe and characters, rather than having some kind of long exposition scene with some pacing issues here and there, but in the end, the whole thing turned out to be clear and perfectly understandable.

The finger wasn’t really his main goal, but instead his ticket back into the real world after his plan turned out to be a success (which is: corrupting the Mewman’s magic), something that could trigger his full regeneration via some kind of spell-thing he possibly read about in all those years of plotting. A bunch of well-deserved bonus points for being a rather spiteful final “middle finger” (hah!) to Moon, the one who blasted his finger off in the first place, who also ended up being the one who gave it back to him.

So, what’s the point of this post?
No one, really; just a summary of what I think Toffee’s plot was all about, which was in fact much simpler than it sounded. The only difference from almost every other (mostly animated) series is that the villain, in this case, didn’t monologue over and over about it so the audience could fully understand it in a single scene, but rather remained shady and silent about it, like a real schemer, which Toffee has been since his introduction, would have done, all while the cartoon showed us little hints here and there, so that us fans could connect the dots only when it was too late, just like the characters involved.
