the point is still there right

Exactly! For all we know they can end babygate before the 7th!! I know there have been other instances where everything pointed out for the end, but Louis hasn't mentioned the baby on sm for several months now, and the last thing he had to do was a 3 second video. And apparently he's back to London which i find curious and selling/renting all his houses. So it might be ending very soon!! And it's what you said. It want supposed to still be a thing!! And they also have to move on with their lives

My secret, silly dream is that it’ll end right in time for the April 7 release and Harry will finally break his silence on SM after that. I know, I know, but sometimes my cold heart tries to beat.

Date the impossibly lovely girl you can only see when you unfocus your vision. She’s right there, where she’s always been, and she already loves you so much! Strain your eyes to the point where you need glasses to see her. Never wear your glasses. As you slowly go blind, she’ll come more into focus. She is the most beautiful girl in the world. You tell her such, as her smiling face is the last thing you see. Now you can see nothing, but you are still so very happy. Date the girl who you must go blind to see the true beauty of.

i’ve always been made of iron fists and i guess at this point, i’m just looking for somebody to be soft with me. i’m just looking for somebody to say look: i know you’re mad right now but tomorrow you’ll get over it and i’ll still love you and you’ll still love me and that means everything. what i’m saying is i know i always make it seem like i’m angry but anger has always been a defense mechanism when i’m really hurting.

did you know that almost every time i’m screaming during the night, i drive home crying? did you know that i’m afraid to reach out to my friends because i think they’ll go running? did you know that i stopped blaming myself, i started realizing that people are afraid to show emotions in a world where people always brush them off.

so here’s what i’m going to do: i’m going to start saying thank you more. i’m going to tell people how much i appreciate them. i’m going to say i love you, because i’ve lost too many people without them even realizing how much i do. i’m going to start asking how are you more. i’m going to keep crying because nothing good comes out of hiding your feelings and i don’t care anymore who judges me for it. i’m going to take down my guard and show others that i’m struggling and that’s okay. because i know you probably are too.

what i’m saying is hurt manifests in different ways and just because people don’t show hurt in the way you’re used to doesn’t mean they don’t feel it. what i’m saying is check up on your friends. many of them are good at hiding their true feelings.

Another placement call

I feel bad for saying yes because they haven’t reached a decision on the boys yet. But the likelihood we get the boys is slim anyway because they have siblings 4 hours away and I’m sure they can find a closer home.

Ugh. Still feel bad but I’d feel worse saying no to another placement call.

5 month old girl, 1 year old boy. My agency said they’re looking for placement ASAP and they’re local so two points for us.

AD and baby J would pretty much be twin status. And here I go again, planning our future when it will probably be another no.

This will be the 4th (5th?) call we’ve said yes to. And now for the emotional roller coaster while we wait for an answer. Again. There has to be a yes eventually. Right?

Anyway. I haven’t posted much because I’m so relaxed my brain is mush. I’ve been hiking and gardening and figuring out my sexy camera and fighting with my lazy titties and trying (failing) to enjoy breastfeeding. I can’t wait until she’s a year and I don’t have to feel forced to do it anymore. It’s also The Birthdays (do Aries attract other Aries?!) and I’m trying not to get existential crisis-y about mine. Blah.

PSA

HOLD YOUR HORSES FOR ONE SECOND BECAUSE WE NEED TO TALK ABOUT SOMETHING HERE

Yes, Sanvers kiss, all nice and dandy, pulls in by the jacket, every shipper’s dream, but THAT IS NOT THE POINT HERE LOOK AT WHAT ALEX IS WEARING

Does that remind you of anything? Hm? Anything at all? No?

LET ME REFRESH YOUR MEMORY THEN

THIS FUCKING PIECE RIGHT HERE RIGHT DOWN TO THE BELT also Astra is fingergunning again I swear that wasn’t on purpose this time

I’M JUST SAYING THEY ARE STILL TRYING TO KILL US

THAT IS ALL YOU CAN CONTINUE NOW

Let’s just make something real clear:

I don’t like dogs.

The exception to this is my sister/parents’ dog, because she’s family, and even then I’m still not 100% comfortable around her.

But Ella aside, I do. Not. Like. Dogs.

So everyone who keeps pointing out to me that I called a dog cute or whatever so obviously I’m becoming a dog person, needs to fuck right off.

I’ve seen people say ‘everyone had been tempted by a recast at some point, but do the right thing’. But I never have. A fake holds zero appeal to me. I started to think maybe I’ve just never wanted a doll THAT much to find the recast option appealing. Well, it happened - I fell in love with super dollfie cute Renee, nearly 10 years old and selling for over 4000 second hand. And yet? Nope. Still not tempted no matter how much I pine. It’s like I’m not entitled to everything I want or something.

I think the main reasons Zuko acted the way he did was because he didn't understand between right and wrong, what do you think? Like his actions in Book 3 and in previous books.

Well, Zukos spirital awakening is one thing, but I think it’s kinda logical that he would still want to return home. Yes, he cares much about Iroh and he never turned his back on him like that but the plot have never brought up something that would let Zuko go home. All I want to say, I don’t think this “awakening” thing would change anything. He would still want to return home, even though he kinda knows that it wouldn’t be so bad to stay with Iroh in Ba sing Se.

I just cannot get on board with this. It doesn’t make any sense to go through a meticulous depiction of a spiritual awakening if the character doesn’t understand basic right from wrong. Spiritual awakenings are rare and they drastically change your life. They happen when you are at a very advanced point in your spiritual growth. If they wanted Zuko to still be conflicted, it was very stupid to give him such an awakening in Book 2. Essentially a waste of screen time. Zuko went through all of the stages of an awakening. The way he was written in Book 3 was like it never happened.

Stage 1

Trigger/spontaneous awakening. A spiritual awakening is often triggered by something experienced which had a deep effect in the mind of the person going through the awakening but an awakening can also happen spontaneously too. A trigger can be the loss of a loved one, a near death experience, a spiritual experience or some other event or situation that had a profound effect on the person going through the awakening. Most spiritual awakenings are caused through some sort of shock event or experience that had a deep effect on the person’s soul. The spiritual awakening now begins, brought on either through a trigger event or spontaneously.

Zuko had no idea that he was going to let the Avatar’s bison go that day. It was a sudden and unexpected act of selflessness that made him question everything he has been striving to do for the past 3 years.

Stage 2

Shock and upheaval. The start of the spiritual awakening will be a huge shock to the system especially if it was triggered by an event such as the loss of a loved one or a near death experience. The person going through the awakening will experience a revelation and a realization which may be very overwhelming emotionally for them and the person will start to become aware in a way they never were before. They will now begin to question things in a serious way such as life and death, the afterlife, God, spirituality, their own life and lives of others, the world they live in and themselves and the event that triggered their awakening. Awareness is now activated and the beginning of the awareness process now starts in stage 2 of the spiritual awakening.

Zuko let his Blue Spirit mask go and then he went into a state of shock and passed out.

Stage 3

Chakras begin to open. In stage 3 of the awakening the chakras will now begin to open one at a time as energy pulses through each of the 7 chakras, the energy centers of the body. The opening of each chakra will now cause the symptoms of the spiritual awakening. The symptoms can either be mild or life affecting and it is in stage 3 where people may begin to even question their own sanity due to the intensity of the symptoms. Stage 3 of the awakening is the hardest of all the stages because of the affect the symptoms can have on the person physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually. Stage 3 can be dramatic and traumatic and can take its toll on the mind and body and It can be a very confusing and disruptive time. It is in stage 3 that you will really need to take care of yourself, take lots of rest when possible and eat and drink well. If the emotional and mental symptoms of the awakening is too much to bare because of old and difficult memories cropping up or because you are doubting and worrying about what is happening to you it may help to speak to someone who can help you deal with these feelings. Stage 3 is when you will start to take a deeper look at yourself which for some may be very hard to cope with if they already have low self- esteem, confidence and a negative view on themselves and also this stage may cause upsetting memories to resurface which may be too painful to deal with by self. Awareness continues as the chakras begin to open one by one causing many physical, emotional, mental and spiritual symptoms.

This is why he got sick.

Stage 4

Healing process begins. Once the difficulties of stage 3 are almost over the person going through the spiritual awakening will now go through a healing process of the body and the mind. After all the disruption of stage 3, stage 4 will be a welcome relief. It is in stage 4 when the person will now start to accept who they are, their past, their life, their experiences and they will begin to love themselves because they will now be learning acceptance not just with themselves but with life in general without feeling bitter and resentful. They will also start to lose all the anger, hurt, pain and judgments that they have been carrying around not only at themselves but towards other people too. They will begin to see themselves, others and the world they live in, in a whole new and positive light and they may now start to change their views and opinions on life and on others that they had previously before. They are continuing to become aware and will go through a huge and positive transformation in this stage. The symptoms from stage 3 have now started to calm down but there will still be many symptoms but they should be easier to handle now as the body goes through the healing process. Awareness continues as the healing process now begins.

He was already in the fourth stage. You don’t just go backwards just like that.

Stage 5

Spiritual awakening completed. In stage 5 the spiritual awakening has now completed and the person now has awareness like they have never before. This stage is a wonderful stage to be in because it will turn a person’s life around in a complete and positive way. The person will now feel happier with who they are and will accept and love who they are, they will not be quick to judge others but will now have compassion and empathy towards other people, animals and nature. In stage 5 they will have now realized that they are connected to every living thing on this planet and beyond. They will realize that nothing and no one is separate and that we were all created together by the same source, and that even though people may have different names for that source, it is still the same source which we all came from and will go back to eventually. The spiritual awakening process is now completed and although the person is now awakened they will continue to become more aware as they progress through their life learning new lessons and developing their soul but now with a new and different prospective than they had before. This spiritual awakening may reflect on them in their future lifetimes and they may find that they will be quite spiritually aware at a very young age in their next lifetime.

I believe it was Ehasz’ intention to show Zuko completing his awakening process just in time for him to return home to his old life. That is why the episode was called The Awakening and why Zuko seems so sad and lonely in this episode. It was supposed to be ironic that he gets to go home right after he stopped wanting to go back. This would have made for an interesting twist of fate for Zuko. I just don’t think it makes sense for him to struggle with basic right and wrong after he already completed his awakening.

emma what are your thoughts on the boys releasing stuff in april? we used to talk they were smart enough to release their stuff during different times of the year so one wouldn't overshadow the other but it seems like niall's gonna release something and so is louis and we know harry's already so i'm a bit confused, can you share your thoughts? thnx

This is one of those things where I have to say not to get worked up prematurely. Right now, the only impending CONFIRMED release date is a single on the 7th from Harry. The Bebe/Louis collab, to my knowledge, is still speculation at this point. And we don’t know when Niall will come out with music next. We don’t know when Liam will come out with music for the first time either. So just wait and see what happens with release dates and all that. I assume they’ll try to avoid directly competing with one another in terms of release date as much as possible - I would think it’s in their labels interests to do so because even with different genres of music, a significant portion of the target audience is still going to be the existing fandom, which for the most part, all the boys share. And again, at this point, we don’t have any confirmations on when music will be released beyond Harry’s single.

HEY !

      I JOINED the star wars rp community in februrary, 2016 ( i remember saving the url using the free wifi in my local bunnings hardware store ), & with only a few followers & a work in progress portrayal of our beloved ahsoka to show for it, it was really hard for me to gain confidence & come out of my shell. i’ve been in the tumblr rp community since i was eleven, so i was often treated exactly like who i was ; a little kid. but despite my fear i found a community that loved me & accepted me, welcomed my ocs ( ashla & puk ), with open arms, & just overall supported me. i branched onto other fandoms eventually, as a i do, & remade blogs many times. in fact, i’m debating RIGHT NOW whether to remake this one, but the point still stands. i am SO THANKFUL for all of your support towards me !

      i come home every day, eagerly checking to see if i have any messages, any replies, no matter how slow i am at responding to them. it’s a highlight in an otherwise bad week, maybe, & i am thankful for the waves of support i’ve had, as well as the friendships i’ve made !

      i’m not going to do a follow forever, because those things really stress me out. i love ALL of you, so, so much, but i’m going to tag a few of the people who i’ve talked too often on im / have made close relationships with / etc.

@aduain​ // @captaxn( @firebcrn) // @n1hr1k // @crdered // @o-te-ora​ // @playsvulgar​ // @saggitariisms​ // @storygiver​ // @tenderborn​.

       you are just a few of the people that i wish i could tag but you guys have been around since the beginning, whether that beginning was in star wars, or in the tmnt fandom. i would say a big mushy speech but i’m sleepy & i’ll probably cry & it’ll go on forever, but please know you all mean WORLDS to me, & i will never, ever take what you’ve done for me for granted. just, like, right now it’s all, * phili collins, you’ll be in my heart *. i love you all so much.

       seriously, i love every single one of my followers to the moon & back, & no matter what direction i choose to go with my blogs, & my writing, i hope you’ll still show me your support, that i’m so eternally thankful for.

Are we getting two cours?

I DOOONTTT KNOOOOOOOooOOoOoOOoOooOoWwwwWwwwWwwwwww…

:/

No really at this point there’re just confusing new pieces of information dropping left and right and…I really have no idea anymore. I want two cours but I’ve come more or less to terms with one cour only. Not happy if it happens but whatever. That said, I still have hope, and until anything is confirmed I won’t give up, and neither should the rest of us. After, only once we stop fighting, do we lose :)

ESSAY FANFICTION (and what I can’t get right)

Way back I used to write fics with good ‘ol pen and scrap paper, before I got a computer, and long before I got internet. I wasn’t the best writer, I’m still not, but I was… am, someone who is so bad at organizing all my story ideas that I had to resort to writing something similar to a summary of events before I started. One of those bulletin points charts with the things I’d like to happen/progress in each chapter.

After my dumb looking chart was all complete, I would go on to reorganize the points out in the order I wanted them and then fill in the ideas with the actual story. It’s the only way I can write my thoughts out, otherwise I get this unruly mess of confusion and all developments would be out of order, or not line up, or just not make any sense. As I went on I pretty much realized what I was writing in fics was this material that was evocative of a tldr; before actually writing a long post.

So all these years go by and I find these random fics and personal stories in my folders on my computer, and files in my emails, and I kept this style up all these years (now I never posted any of these, your eyes would bleed if I did). I read through them and I started to notice something, there is this one problem (of many) with my writing then that still continues now. I have this horrible, uncanny ability to turn anything I’m writing (story-wise) into essay format. ESSAY FORMAT. The whole bulletin points outline is what I learned in English and I was applying it to my stories, every last one.

As someone who excelled in English classes I just can’t, not for the life of me, rewire my brain to write stories as actual stories. You would think my ability to write A+ material essays on a whim in class would lend me some writing ability, you would think I could get at least one decent fic out, YOU WOULD THINK I’D BE ABLE TO WRITE SOME KIND OF ADEQUATE MATERIAL! You would think but it’s just never going to happen. I just want to know the secret behind being able to separate creative writing with essay writing because having fanfics in a thesis sort of outline is the single-most, boring style of writing, and it’s all I’ve got.

Tldr; ask me to write you some hot McHanzo fic sure, but you’re going to get something reminiscent of a dissertation about why there’s a steamy relationship going on between a cheesy cowboy and a chicken legs ninja.

Also that Bioware thing feels super similar to the thing Square Enix did when they said that they were going to ‘update’ chapter 13 of FFXV cuz it sucked? Apparently? All I know is that once I saw that I was like, I ain’t playing this right now if it’s gonna get literally fixed because it’s being admitted by the dev team as broken. Still haven’t gone back to it since then either! You lost one little point for me that day Square! and then u gained it back when nier came out and was great but that is, besides the point

anonymous asked:

How do u feel about Gaara uncle The one who was ordered to kill him? Do u think he was doing the right thing?

Yashamaru! Dang it’s been a long time since I’ve written about him. 

I mean honestly - I don’t really know where to start with him. First and foremost literally nothing any adult did to Gaara for the first 12 years of his life was the “right” thing, so from a strictly moral point of view - no, he should not have done that. It blows past the borders of cruelty because Yashamaru KNEW he was the only positive influence in Gaara’s life and he was still willing to rip that away from him just for some misplaced sense of vindication. From a writing standpoint part of this is hard to reconcile because I’m not actually sure if Kishimoto knew he was going to eventually introduce the “your mother really loved you!” twist when he was originally writing Gaara’s backstory. Yashamaru attempting to exterminate the child his sister actually did hate, while still inexcusable, feels like a slightly more believable motivation then what we are given with the retcon during the War arc. But I’ll roll with it anyway:

The new context kishi gave us for Gaara’s backstory actually makes Yashamaru’s character a bit tragic, because I geniunely think he just did not care. About living, or dying, or the village, or anything. His sisters death threw him into a rapid downward spiral and by the time the Gaara incident happened he was probably just hanging on by a thread. It seems clear to me that Karura was everything to her younger brother and his life was obviously rife with loss prior to her death. The fact that he forced himself to go through the motions every day for years despite literally just wanting to die is very very sad. Doesn’t excuse what he did to Gaara which was fucked up and wrong but his mental state wasn’t exactly in peak condition. The real villain here is Rasa but that’s an entirely different story. Frankly I don’t think the whole “lets emotionally torture a 6 year old to see if we can set him off” plan makes any damn sense and doesn’t actually seem like something either Yashamaru or Rasa would do but whatever. The plot needed it to happen I guess.

Sorry I'm not being rude but, I was TOTALLY confused by the last ask. I heard your cute voice, you ARE a girl right????

No, anon. I’m a guy lol as in I was born a guy, even if transgender people at this point have a deeper voice than mines lmao

Long story short. I am not going to be able to have a deep voice again, ever, and I’m still trying to get used to how soft my voice is compared to how it “used” to be. But I got no one to blame but myself soooo! I gotta deal with it. I actually have a huge complex over it and get a lot of unwanted attention due to it. I’m 5″4, look 15 and sound like a kid. Take a guess with what kind of people I have to deal with a lot.

im a bit confused : are alister, the guy who took the cursed sword and the guy smoking with a blue navel piercing all the same person ? could you elaborate a bit on what happened to him ? :o cool ocs btw

Thank u!!
Ah sry it’s confusing but ye, they’re all the same! He dyed his hair for a bit when he was younger, and when he’s older he gets more piercings. He got nips 2..an possibly others. :’D I think the ones for his ears are a family thing.
Right now what I feel happens is something along the lines of(cause stuff changes):

Has a nice life in a town by the sea w his family until a certain point, then he’s hiding in a strange city w callan, who’s still p young, and is struggling to find a job/livin. They both dye hair 4 disguise. He looks a bit older than he is, and he’s strong, so he ends up doing illegal fights. (He’s also just. Not in a good place emotionally..he’s punching out his anger/feelings)

He catches the eye of someone who works in bigger crime, who offers him money to be either a bodyguard or just someone who protects merchandise. They often traffic illegal items (like sword). Along the way something else happens, they think he stole from them, and he gets half beaten to death. Callan is also at risk in this situation.

Anyone who knows me well enough knows that I’m fascinated by weird religious panics about kids’ pop culture from the last few decades, from D&D being accused of teaching kids witchcraft to He-Man being picked apart for occult symbolism. So I’m honestly surprised there hasn’t been some loud, widely-publicized moral panic about Steven Universe from the religious fundamentalist crowd yet. I mean, think about it, we have a popular cartoon show aimed at children that features:

  • At least one canonical same-sex couple, as well as at least a couple major examples of same-sex attraction
  • A main character who is stated to have been born out of wedlock and raised by a non-traditional family unit
  • At least a few instances of “suggestive” dance moves
  • Magic and violence being shown as a good and positive thing
  • A major symbol for the good guys being a five-pointed star
  • Use of mystical/magical crystals (fundies are still suspicious about that aspect of new age culture, right?)
  • Seeing the future via a “third eye” (this is one thing I recall that fundies complaining about occult elements in cartoons back in the 80s LOVED to rail about)
  • A character who uses shapeshifting to turn into animal forms (another aspect of “occult” religions and beliefs that 80s-era fundies got their undies in a bunch over) or even to transform from a female form to a male one
  • A character who defies the gender binary and is attractive to both men AND women

I mean, I certainly wouldn’t agree with such a moral panic, but in a world where The Loud House can get yelled at by One Million Moms for featuring a pair of gay parents in one episode, I’m honestly baffled that this entire show managed to slip by the religious types’ radar.

Man, fundies really lost their touch since the Satanic Panic ended, huh?

IDK IF ANYONE HAS POINTED THIS OUT BUT

not only did Yuuri have a billion posters of Viktor on his room, he also kept a picture of Viktor FRAMED ON HIS DESK RIGHT WHERE HE COULD ALWAYS SEE IT

and unless it’s merely an animation error not only did he keep a framed picture of Viktor, he also took the time to swap said picture from time to time

AND EVEN AFTER HIS PANIC WHERE HE REMOVED ALL THE POSTERS AFTER VIKTOR’S ARRIVAL HE STILL KEPT THE FRAME

however it’s impossible to tell EXACTLY WHAT is in the frame right now so maybe it’s not Viktor anymore, but instead Vicchan (my poor heart if that’s the case) bUT WHO KNOWS maybe he did keep one picture 

please protect this pure boy at all cost he makes my heart melt he’s so adorable and loved Viktor for so long 

If you ever have at any point said “That person looks like a girl, why should I call them he/him pronouns? They obviously are faking being trans”

Consider:

1. You are not them

2. Not all people get to transition, wear boys clothes, or cut their hair because of their parents, and the only thing they can do is ask people to call them the right pronouns.

3. Some trans men still like their hair long/ feminine clothes because clothes and hair have no gender.

4. Mind your own god damn business and just call them what they asked you to call them out of human decency.
