the people are mostly good times

Fandoms can be heaven, fandoms can be hell.

Besides Naruto, to me fandoms were mostly heaven. Granted, the old ones. I met so many people, people with whom I forged so many beautiful friendships that just lasted over time.

I have the most beautiful memories from those times, and some of the most beautiful people as friends, and I just couldn’t feel happier about that. it was also what shaped me into what I am today. And funny how life has its road… 

swear to god, being in an abusive home for five years gave me a completely skewed idea of how much I could actually handle

this week alone I’ve been dealing with another relocation (crashing with another castmate, this time in Howard Beach), eating mostly mac and cheese and coffee, thinking I lost my old iPod, going to get the very short haircut I’ve come to actually like having touched up and ending up with it below-my-comfort-level short, and yet I’m pretty relaxed knowing that hair grows, I didn’t need to drown out the world, mac and cheese is good and a relocation just means a different commute. my stress levels are probably still ludicrous by normal people standards but for me I’m approaching freaking zen.

I was tagged by @corymichaelsmithofficial​ and @endless-nygmobblepot​ aka two of the nicest people on this whole website

I honestly don’t know who to tag, mostly because everyone I think of has already been tagged, but if you want to do this, please do (and tag me so I can see) <3

Hey maybe we should go back to liking video games we want to like and maybe stop harassing people who like them or shaming people for liking certain games. It’s been pretty bad on on this website lately and I see a lot of people feeling bad for liking games or being excited for games that others keep bringing down. Be nice to each other. Let people be excited and happy if it isn’t harming anyone.

F*ck you, pay me…

Apologies for the length. The revenge is sweet though.

I was a contractor with a small business (Company X) that did consulting and other services for bigger companies. I usually worked directly with these bigger companies and was operating largely as a direct employee of Company X, though not on site.

I enjoyed the work but some of the people at Company X were d*cks. Just petty nonsense like talking shit about me in meetings, and for no reason that I could discern. All their clients loved me; I was good for business. They were just being d*cks, like d*cks do. It didn’t matter. Since I was working mostly with Company X’s clients, I didn’t have to spend much time communicating with the d*cks.

Every month I sent my invoice to Company X, and the terms were they had 30 days to send payment. At some point, they promoted their main accounting guy (one of the d*cks, henceforth, D*ck Accountant) and hired a Deputy Accountant, who was put in charge of satisfying invoices, such as mine.

Some live-action BATB headcanons (mostly about Lumiere and Plumette’s wedding because I’m a sap):

  • Prince/Beast is bi or pan (”…his parties with the most beautiful people,” “…and earn their love in return”).
  • Before the spell was broken, the members of the staff who were able to move throughout the castle would relay messages between Cadenza and Garderobe from time to time.
  • Lumiere and Plumette get engaged soon after they become human again. Lumiere had promised her it would happen once the curse was lifted, and sometimes talking about their possible future was comforting to them.
  • Lumiere makes Cogsworth his best man, mostly because he’s very organized, but also because it means he’ll have to give a toast and admit that Lumiere has good points.
  • Chip is the ring bearer.
  • Cadenza plays the processional music, and Garderobe sings for their first dance (okay I’m going by modern wedding customs, I don’t know if any of this is how they did it in 18th century France). 
  • Lumiere cries when he sees her in the dress.
  • So does Cogsworth.
  • Everyone’s crying or almost crying during the vows, mainly because they thought there would never be a chance for this to happen.
  • When the officiant says “You may now kiss the bride” he hasn’t even finished the sentence before Plumette grabs Lumiere’s face and kisses him.
  • The Prince insists on throwing them a huge reception in the ballroom and basically invites the entire town (LeFou goes with his new boyfriend, of course).
  • Plumette has a dance with Chip and he’s standing on her feet the whole time and it’s adorable.
  • Everyone keeps saying how Plumette is the most beautiful woman there (and let’s be real, she is). Lumiere can’t take his eyes off her and he keeps smiling because he’s so ridiculously in love with her and he can’t believe his luck.

After the discourse yesterday, I realized that for every person calling me an apologist or a shitlord or an idiot, or for every person who told me or anyone who supported me that they should die, there were 30 people telling me that i was in the right and that they were overreacting and really reaching for something that wasnt there.

additionally, i lost a good chunk of followers yesterday, but as of right now ive gained all of them back, with an addition of 100+ more

so i want everyone to know that i learned nothing and everyone who said i was a bad person after my apology, or put more than an hour into thought into what went down, your efforts were in vain and if anything i am a worse, more bitter person because of it

thank u

"Accidentally capture the wrong base"? .....tell us more? Please?

this was before we got agent agent back as our handler, and part of the reason why he finally turned up for work again. 

so the thing about clint is that hes 1. not a good listener and 2. hes deaf. mostly. these are separate issues because being mostly deaf doesnt stop him from understanding what people are saying most of the time, it just means that you have to be sure he knows youre trying to communicate with him before you say something. (and also that you should make sure your mask doesnt cover your mouth so he can lipread, but whatever.)

we had this agent—incredibly boring guy in the worst sort of way–who’d requested clint, nat, and i for an op. nat and i were supposed to hit two of the leaders of a crime syndicate while clint got the third. easy peasy, kill some guys, free some hostages, small country liberated, total cakewalk. but the agent running the op and the briefing took FOREVER. he was talking us through like none of us had ever overthrown a country before, explaining every minute detail. nat and i could just kinda zone out and let things wash over us, picking up the pertinent details, but clint cant really do that. his hearing aids help but they weren’t perfect, so he also had to be kinda lipreading just to keep up. which takes a lot of focus for incredibly boring info. naturally he zoned out too.

which was how he missed the fact that his guy was not actually staying in his incredibly fortified base-slash-villa. his hostages were, but he wasn’t. 

luckily, they covered this in the briefing packet we were each provided with, which was a mere 362 pages. 

so obviously none of us actually read it.

we poked through, got blueprints, guard schedules, alarm systems and so on, but didnt bother with most of the rest of it. 

they dropped us in the air over each of our respective targets, clint last. i had the cliffside resort, nat had the downtown headquarters, and clint had the base-villa. nat and i handled ours like pros, of course, corpses everywhere, and clint did too–mowed right through the security, got the hostages, and then called in that his syndicate leader wasnt there, what the hell, who gave me this bad intel.

which was when he was informed that the big bad wasnt IN the villa, he was on the ISLAND ACROSS from the villa, and that hed been supposed to covertly infiltrate the beach house there and quietly capture him. ideally without ever setting foot in the villa; he was just supposed to steal a boat from the villa docks and not get spotted by security. 

unfortunately, clint had blown up all the watercraft at the villa’s docks to keep syndicate members from escaping. which meant he still had to get to the island and capture this guy, but now there were no motorboats left. and if this syndicate jerkoff got away, fury was gonna have his hide.

and thats how clint wound up launching a one-man amphibious assault on an international crime syndicate from a paddleboat.

and also why clint reads his briefings now.

you hit a period in your life sometime after your teenage years and you realize how much you’ve changed as a person since then. your views on the world have expanded, your self of self has become clearer and your relationships with the people around you have evolved into new things. not all of it is necessarily good change but change nonetheless. looking back you may be able to pinpoint a few times when you were aware of that change. some major life event that you knew you wouldn’t be the same afterwards. a handful of decisions that led you down new paths. mostly though, the change was gradual. incremental. unnoticeable. and it’s happening right now too. wherever you are in your journey, you are moving forward. evolving. all the tiny little decisions we make during the day change us over time. all the times we try sometime new. all the times we say hello to a stranger. all the times we care for ourselves. all the times we learn sometime new. in days, weeks, months, years, you won’t be the person you are reading this right now. so keep moving forward. evolve. become the best version of you you can find.

it has come time to unlike the reptile report page and advocate against them.

this is a page on facebook that essentially “markets” (reposts, links) things going on in the reptile community (mostly in the us). they’re usually good about sourcing their stuff. but… they’re now endorsing and advocating for breeders who are absolutely horrid.

there are several people who have posted about how bad brian is. here is one big post, and here’s one with screenshots of him claiming that retics (can be up to 20 feet long) never stretch out in the wild. there are so many sources on how bad underground reptiles is (they’re importers who knowingly sell sick animals).

I am here to tell you to unlike this page and share this post because of this bs.

I am a huge kingdom hearts fan and I would love to draw characters from the series but I have a hard time doing do you have any drawing templates you might would like to share

Usually people have trouble with the hairstyles, as Nomura designs some… unique hairstyles lol 

(for clothing, I don’t really have any tips :( I have to use reference pics every time I draw their clothing. If you’re good at drawing zippers and belts, then you’re halfway there. )

I don’t draw their hair 100% exactly as Nomura draws them or how they’re portrayed in-game, but the general shape is there. 

Spiky-haired KH characters have their hair grouped in a way that is one of the signatures of their design. Like Sora:

I just can’t understand how some people don’t see that karamel is actually one of the realest couples to ever exist on TV. They didn’t have the perfect begginning, but they learned to see the good in each other. Then they started a relationship that it’s far from those perfect TV show couples that we’re used to: yes, they laugh, they have a good time together, but they also fight and stand for what they believe in, but mostly, they try really hard to make the relationship work. Mon El constantly does something wrong, yes, but he was raised very differently and even so he ALWAYS tries to make things right and learn what to do and what not to do. And Kara is always trying to have more patience with Mon El and be more flexible with him. They help each other be better. That, my friends, it’s what a real relationship is all about.

Here we are! The final eight are Spinosaurus, Balaur, Brachytrachelopan, Dreadnoughtus, Maiasaura, Tianyulong, Harpy Eagle, Little Blue Penguin 

There were 265 votes this round, which is, *long whistle*

It seems that Montanaspinus is the worst dinosaur, closely followed by the Malkani Taxa

Discussion of the actual results under the cut. I know that I should have had the reasons be specific for answer; don’t worry, next time they will be.

i juST WANNA LOOK IN THE SHEITH TAG WITHOUT ANTIS POPPING UP IS THAT TOO MUCH TO ASK FOR?!?!?!
I ship mostly Shieth and Klance and nothing else, but I love seeing art of all the ships people ship from the show, bc PEOPLE R SO TALENTED UGH, bUT you DON’T SEE ME COMPLAINING ABOUT HOW MUCH I HATE A CERTAIN SHIP AND SEE ME TRASH TALK PEOPLE FOR IT! GOOD LORD! I’ve never told a Kallura shipper “kill yourself” or “stop making art of this ship I HATE IT” because, for one, that’s cyber bulling, and two, they’ve probably put a lot of time into their work and me saying rude things will probably make them self conscious about ever posting their art again. I’ve never seen a shipping war as bad as this in any fandom besides this one, like it turns people away from the Voltron fandom and the show in general. The voice actors and everyone else with the show would be so disappointed if they saw this much hate going back and forth over their shows characters. Smh.

Can I just brag about my boy here for a second? This Renegade, he’s only 14 months old and a complete monster.  There are some of his puppy pictures in there but the top ones are what he looks like now mostly. He’s a purebred German Shepherd, ¼ work and ¾ show. He’s my big baby and he’s being trained to be a service dog for me for my anxiety and depression. He’s too smart for his own good and it makes it hard to train him, but he knows that when I’m having a hard time that it’s his job to comfort me. He’s also a great protection dog, he is not trained but he does scare people off with his “I will eat your children” bark but he’s very loving towards everyone once he meets you or your dog.

I’m very happy to have this boy in my life even though there are days that I want to strangle him. His looks are the only thing that keeps him alive sometime, lol. Anyway, I just need to show off my boy.
