the harder the come

anonymous asked:

Hey so guess what? I had told you in an earlier ask that ch 22 of lucky us killed me and you said to come back to life just to die again. I followed your directions and am now experiencing the feeling of death the second time around. Ch 23 is even better like how do you even do that? Whenever I think a chapter is the top you just come back harder and I love it and love you! I will continue to die and die again just so I can relish in these chapters of pure beauty

Not through my puny human strength. ‘Tis a gift from God.

You think I’m clever enough to bring things back from chapters ago and make it look like I planned that from the beginning? Pfft. I can’t even remember how to use a can opener.

Now I will leave you with two bits of information:

  • Chapter 23 detonated the hard decision I made regarding this fic a few weeks ago
  • There’s one more thing from a previous chapter that’s going to make a major comeback…

Why? Because science… The science behind throwing a punch is fascinating… Power comes from the ground. The ground is your point of reference,from which to generate powerful force… Your ability to punch harder,comes from your ability to make yourself heavy at the moment of impact… A punch requires multiple accelerations of different masses working together simultaneously… The core ALONE can increase body mass, rotate the hips and spine,release the hand, and create impact tension…

It’s a difficult thing to go from secretly crushing on your school rival at a distance to sharing a tentative psychic connection with him, an audience of three other people, and an assorted collection of sentient machines.

Harder still to watch that crush come to be something more.

Right now, I’m a little disappointed in Tumblr

I expected the anti-DC trolls to be out in full force attacking the Justice League with great relish. I mean, Twitter’s anti-DC forces were out in full force within an hour of the trailer’s release. But so far, all I’ve seen is a bunch of limp-wristed, poorly constructed slams claiming that the trailer “is shit!” and “too [fill in the blank].”

That’s all you got? Come on, trolls! Try harder. I know you don’t have lives, so don’t act like you don’t have time.

Was the Justice League trailer perfect? No. But very few movie trailers are. A reality so many forget when they criticize the DCEU.

So, hop to! Give us something other than “it looks like shit” and “It’s too dark.” I honestly feel like you’re not even trying anymore.

3 years ago I stopped writing.

I stopped writing due to a bad situation and recently started my headcanons to start getting my thoughts together. I am writing again and it’s harder now. I have to force it to remotely come out the way I want it to. And while I work on the real writing I will be writing drabbles and minithings to help exercise the muscle i haven’t used in such a long time. I posted the first one today for one of my OTPs. Deamus. Read it or dont. I dont care. It is short. And below my standards. But i managed to do it and im proud.

Hola! So, I don't know if you've considered using food in placing Thisby geographically/chronologically. Puck eats a lot of beans (beans for days), and proper feed for Dove is expensive. She eats and orange and feels guilty about it, which reminds me a little of Little Women, when oranges were a little bit of of luxury for the lower class. I don't remember what else everyone eats, or if the book mentions what food Thisby grows vs. imports. Food for thought (sorry about the pun)!

Hey there! Ooh, you have given me a lot to chew on! (See, I love a pun!) 

If I recall, the reason Dove’s feed was so expensive was because alfalfa isn’t grown on Thisby. (Alfalfa is often called lucerne in the UK but Maggie almost always uses American terms, whatever that means.) I think it’s still fairly expensive and harder to come by in the UK/Ireland to this day, as it isn’t really suited to growing the cold, wet climate of that region

I’ll have to look into into the beans! Cursory examination into oranges tells me that they would have been near impossible to come by in the UK during WWII, as they were imported. Though still a rarity, they started to appear again in the 1950s as rationing was phased out, but I wonder if the timing works? If the Connollys grew up during the war, would they have had access to oranges? I’m still looking into the interwar era, but posters like this one from the 1930s lead me to believe that maybe oranges weren’t as rare then? Ah, who knows???

In any case, thank you for opening up a whole new avenue of things for me to research! I’m so interested to learn more about what sorts of foods would have been available!  :3

  • Viktor [caressing yuri's thigh]: you're getting thick again.
  • Yuri [blushing]: what kind of exercises would you recomend?
  • Viktor [smirks]: you want me to say it?
  • Yuri [blushing harder]: stop that
  • Yurio: come with us, they said.
  • Yurio: it'll be fun, they said.
Things that Yuuri on Ice has taught me:

-it’s okay to fail, so long as you pick yourself back up again and try harder

-different people show love in different ways

-good times will always come after the bad

-there is always a light in the darkness

-remember that some people need support more than motivation. (Though they are similar, they are not the same)

-talking things out is always better than keeping it in.

-you can always have someone to look up to, but it is important to find yourself

-love may not get you gold, but it will always win.

My roommate just walked in the door and asked if I have pants on because her parents are with her… so then this happened

“Stiles do you have pants on?” Derek yelled into the apartment as he unlocked the door. 

“Yeah but I can take them off if there’s sexytime in my future,” Stiles yelled back and Derek’s ears burned red.

“My mom’s with me,” Derek said, avoiding eye contact with his mother. 

Talia laughed, “Hi Stiles.”

“Hi Mrs. Hale,” Stiles said, coming out of the bedroom, face red and voice a little higher than usual, “I didn’t know you were coming by.”

“I can go if you two have big plans,” Talia said and Stiles blushed harder. Derek felt his own cheeks flush too, “I just wanted to come see the new place.”

“Well here it is,” Derek said, “Stiles don’t you have something to do not here.”

“Yep,” Stiles said, “Um, something somewhere else.”

“Oh don’t leave, I’m going,” Talia said, kissing Derek on the cheek and hugging Stiles, “I’m glad you had pants on.”

“Me too.”

She left with another laugh, “Don’t just bring you mom over without warning! What if I hadn’t had pants on!”

“I didn’t think that far,” Derek said, tugging Stiles closer.

“I’ll ditch my pants now if you want,” Stiles said as Derek nipped at his ear, “Right now.”

“Do it,” Derek whispered, voice rough, all their embarrassment forgotten as they made their way to the bedroom leaving a trail of clothes behind them.


This blog is inspired by the idea that us introverts have a harder time feeling like we don’t fit in. Especially when it comes to a group setting. We’re the quiet ones. We’re the ones that don’t seem to have anything interesting to add to a conversation. We’re the ones with all the intricate thoughts that only comes out when we write, create art or sing.

Hence, we wanted a blog that expressed a sense of wear styles that goes with who we are. Subtle. Yet Sleek.

Survey suggests millennials aren’t lazy and entitled. In fact, it’s quite the opposite.

  • Millennials can’t seem to escape the notion that they’re of a lazy, spoiled, entitled generation.
  • But a recent survey revealed that millennials are, by many metrics, much harder workers than older generations — even when it comes at the expense of their personal lives.
  • The survey found that millennials are more likely to pass up their vacation time, even though they typically receive fewer vacation days than their older colleagues.
  • Nearly half of millennials surveyed said it was a good thing to be seen by one’s boss as a “work martyr” or someone who shows “complete dedication” to their job. Read more
