the things we make make us

You know what makes me smile everyday? Knowing that the Bughead fanfics were accurate this entire time.

Um, yeah. Have you seen this face? Of course the CW was gonna cash in on that ya big dummy!

And my grin, ch-ya …

Producers: You know what? Put a freaking leather jacket on him

Roberto: You sure? I mean, we want edgy Jughead, but he already has the signature Beanie and that’s kind of working as his thing

Producers: Do it, see how it looks.

Roberto: Oh, wow

Producers: Trust us! We practically make our living off of screaming fan girls, Rob. 

Inner Thoughts: Am I going to be trapped doing a third season because of this damn jacket? Cuz I was working on some amazing photos…

They did seem a little off to me. Very off actually. Something just seems peculiar. I'm really glad uv opened it up to discussion bc I think we're a fairly intelligent fandom & we might be able to make sense of it together if we are all allowed to feel comfortable discussing our opinions. That's why respect for anons is key, even if u don't agree with someone. As for me, I get the sense that SOMETHING odd is going on. The avoidance at the upfronts makes no rational sense for promotion (1)

(2) the chemistry bw dd & ga is something anyone in their right mind would want to use & capitalize on as much as humanely possible. The only thing that makes sense to me is that contractually they may have forbidden it. I do wonder if it has something to do with the crown or pm specifically. The man is obviously in her life in some capacity, he showed up to the baftas WITH her. So perhaps this avoidance was done out of respect for that, or out of obligation. It might even be at his insistence.

(3) & in the spirit of open discussion, I have to say it strikes me as odd that dd has pretended the Webby’s didn’t even happen. Not a word of congrats to his friend. Not a pic, link, shout out, or even a word. Yes, It’s only social media, but it is telling. Especially when on the same day GA THANKED him on twitter he made a point to like another female costars tweet, but he ignored GA’s. He couldn’t even LIKE her tweet, but he liked Claire’s? That does mean something to me. I don’t know what

(4) I also appreciate that but willing to open this up to discussion despite the fact that u may not see what others see. I love them together very much, but I have to be honest with myself and my rational mind when I see something that is clearly off or different or telling. I’m glad I can talk about it with others & see what others think.

-

No problem with talking about it, anon. I’m always amazed and also kind of frustrated, when I genuinely thought everybody was agreeing on something, but I was wrong, and it’s actually a real debate. I don’t think I can convince you, and you’re really not going to convince me, though. This ceremony made Gillian’s year., so what else is there to say? With all due respect, what you’re saying about a contract stopping them from doing joined promotion makes absolutely no sense. 

Such a contract isn’t a joke, if you make it, you respect it. If there was such a contract between them, the two pictures that we’ve seen of them at The Upfronts wouldn’t have existed. And what would be the point on signing a contract like this to show up together an hour later at an awards ceremony? 

About David not answering Gillian’s tweet, when did he even answer her? He never does. Or she has to force him, like we assume she did about the Red Speedo last May when they were together. When he likes a tweet only mentioning Gillian’s name, people lose it on Twitter. He choose not to provoke that kind of reaction, I think we should respect that. 

And again, really, nothing was off at all! They were two invalid idiots on a stage, cute, giddy, and hot a hell as usual. 

@the anon calling me ugly without make-up. I usually wouldn’t care so much to give a serious answer to a random negative ask but I’ve seen this going on lately with all this “you’re not pretty without make-up” bullshit towards a lot of girls. I know I may not be the prettiest and not even close to pretty but I can tell you one thing for sure: I fucking love myself. It’s neither narcissistic nor snobbish or idk. It’s just nature. We should all love ourselves and work on ourselves to make us better people. I never wanted to go out without make-up cause I’d feel terribly ugly like you said. But I’ve had enough of this. I would never give two shits about a bunch of people who would treat me differently just because some features of my face are accentuated or hidden. I still fucking love make-up as a form of art, not as something that would hide my insecurities. So, from the bottom of my heart, you can fuck all the way off and please stop spreading your negativity. Lots of love.

anonymous asked:

I used to be kind of a problematic edgelord like 7 years ago when I was a teenager. I spent a lot of time with toxic nasty people and was a bad person. Since then I've made wonderful kinder friends and have educated myself on a lot of stuff. I now work hard to help others and do good. But I never feel like I can make up for the crap I did when I was younger. I'm always really anxious about my past. I don't feel like I deserve to exist or have good things happen to me. Any advice?

I think we all have some things we dislike about our past selves. Younger years come with growing pains that can make us different from who we truly become. It’s not worth it to still blame yourself for things you did back then. You have grown so much, and you’re learning new things everyday. I’m not proud of who I was 7 years ago either, but I can’t change that. There is nothing you can do to change who you were, you can only focus on who you are now. :)

How to make a Fire Emblem Heroes Paper Doll

So it seems like a lot of people on Reddit love my Fire Emblem Heroes paper dolls, so I decided to make a tutorial on how to make your own!

So the things you will need are:

- A computer with Wi-Fi

- A printer

- Paper

- Scissors

- Tape

- Glue

First, visit the Spriters Resource page for Fire Emblem Heroes and select your character. We will be making Linde for this tutorial.

Download the spritesheet and print it out on a piece of paper. I use two pieces of paper for both sides, but that’s completely up to you.

Cut out all the pieces you need, disregarding any extra clothing pieces/hands/heads.

First, assemble the body pieces together.

Next, assemble the arm parts.

Next, assemble the leg parts.

Add a couple of accessories on, and then put them together. Now assemble the head pieces. If the character is a male or a female with short hair, disregard this and just plop the head onto the body.

Place the assembled pieces onto a tiny sheet of paper, preferably from the scraps you made via the spritesheet.

Cover the doll up with tape.

Cut the doll out. When cutting, stop halfway and open the cut out bits of the doll and put glue on it. Do the same thing for the other side.

And you’re done! You can try putting together the other side but it’s totally up to you. I hope you liked my tutorial!

Tony Walsh - A Poem for Manchester

Vigil Held for Victims of Manchester Attack in UK - 23 May 2017

This is the place In the north-west of England. It’s ace, it’s the best And the songs that we sing from the stands, from our bands Set the whole planet shaking. Our inventions are legends. There’s nowt we can’t make, and so we make brilliant music We make brilliant bands We make goals that make souls leap from seats in the stands And we make things from steel And we make things from cotton And we make people laugh, take the mick summat rotten And we make you at home And we make you feel welcome and we make summat happen And we can’t seem to help it And if you’re looking from history, then yeah we’ve a wealth But the Manchester way is to make it yourself. And make us a record, a new number one And make us a brew while you’re up, love, go on And make us feel proud that you’re winning the league And make us sing louder and make us believe that this is the place that has helped shape the world And this is the place where a Manchester girl named Emmeline Pankhurst from the streets of Moss Side led a suffragette city with sisterhood pride And this is the place with appliance of science, we’re on it, atomic, we struck with defiance, and in the face of a challenge, we always stand tall, Mancunians, in union, delivered it all Such as housing and libraries and health, education and unions and co-ops and first railway stations So we’re sorry, bear with us, we invented commuters. But we hope you forgive us, we invented computers. And this is the place Henry Rice strolled with rolls, and we’ve rocked and we’ve rolled with our own northern soul And so this is the place to do business then dance, where go-getters and goal-setters know they’ve a chance And this is the place where we first played as kids. And me mum, lived and died here, she loved it, she did. And this is the place where our folks came to work, where they struggled in puddles, they hurt in the dirt and they built us a city, they built us these towns and they coughed on the cobbles to the deafening sound to the steaming machines and the screaming of slaves, they were scheming for greatness, they dreamed to their graves. And they left us a spirit. They left us a vibe. That Mancunian way to survive and to thrive and to work and to build, to connect, and create and Greater Manchester’s greatness is keeping it great. And so this is the place now with kids of our own. Some are born here, some drawn here, but they all call it home. And they’ve covered the cobbles, but they’ll never defeat, all the dreamers and schemers who still teem through these streets. Because this is a place that has been through some hard times: oppressions, recessions, depressions, and dark times. But we keep fighting back with Greater Manchester spirit. Northern grit, Northern wit, and Greater Manchester’s lyrics. And these hard times again, in these streets of our city, but we won’t take defeat and we don’t want your pity. Because this is a place where we stand strong together, with a smile on our face, greater Manchester forever. And we’ve got this place where a team with a dream can get funding and something to help with a scheme. Because this is a place that understands your grand plans. We don’t do “no can do” we just stress “yes we can” Forever Manchester’s a charity for people round here, you can fundraise, donate, you can be a volunteer. You can live local, give local, we can honestly say, we do charity different, that Mancunian way. And we fund local kids, and we fund local teams. We support local dreamers to work for their dreams. We support local groups and the great work they do. So can you help us. help local people like you? Because this is the place in our hearts, in our homes, because this is the place that’s a part of our bones. Because Greater Manchester gives us such strength from the fact that this is the place, we should give something back. Always remember, never forget, forever Manchester.

i have a crush on my best friend + i think she miight like me back but idk, we cant talk abt it bc her emotionally abusive mother monitors her messages + wont let us meet in person! i have to wait until we meet in person to talk abt Any lgbt stuff.. i also have ptsd/avpd/dpd so that makes everything Hell. like i just,, love her so much but what if she hates me for it? idk what i'd do.. im SO scared of being all alone again. i wish i wasnt so mentally ill... it makes even good things hurt :(

because of how controlling her mother is and from what youre telling me about your mental health, it probably isnt the best to pursue her romantically. even if she did like you back, you two would never be able to talk about it in person or on the phone. and if she doesn’t like you back, i’m afraid you have too much to lose (her friendship)

of course, this is only my suggestion but i highly highly recommend not saying anything to her when there’re so many things that can go bad. i wish you the best of luck.

Urm ok, peer pressure doesn't sound like all this soppy fics I've pictured in my mind these past few days

The thing is, if something were soppy, that’s not the story we’d get. Dan makes videos to be entertaining and funny, he doesn’t make them to genuinely keep us up to date on things that happened in his life. 

Life, I’m pretty sure, is not like a soppy fic all the time for them. But it’s also not exactly like what makes it into videos, either. There’s a happy middle ground where sometimes soppy things happen (like Dan vacationing with Phil’s family) and we’ll get a retelling of those that minimizes emotion and maximizes humor, but - we still know they happened. :)

A touching tribute by the Mancunian poet, read out at the vigil in Manchester’s Albert Square on Tuesday night. 

Boone Fork 2016 09 Panorama – Julian Price Memorial Park, Blue Ridge Parkway, Blowing Rock, North Carolina, October 16, 2016

Carl Jung said, “I have frequently seen people become neurotic
when they content themselves
with inadequate answers to the questions of life.”
Narcissistic Personality Disorder qualifies as a neurosis.
The things we make too little of,
and the things we make too much of,
limit the quality of life we live.
What do the things we think about
keep us from thinking about?
What makes us think they are not
worth thinking about?
How exclusively do we think about
the things we think about?
What makes us think they are
worth thinking about?
What are the questions of life
we have not answered,
or have answered inadequately?
What are the questions of life
that we persistently ignore
or put aside?
What makes us good company?
What makes us worth talking to?
How do you like to spend your money?
How do you like to spend your time?

LISTEN UP IF YOU'RE IN THE SQUAD

Alright, here’s the deal; the Supersquad is now officially a thing! What now, you may ask? Well lemme learn you a thing or two, so pull out some led, ink, or the blood of your enemies and take some notes.

•Method of contact!
-we will be using Skype. If you do not have Skype, make an account. No exceptions. I want everyone to be included and to be on the same page, and not have all these little separate chats.
•Group dynamic!
-let me make this clear: BE NICE. The whole reason you’re even in this chat is because you’re a lovely and cool person who wants to converse and fangirl about the outsiders. In this squad, I as well as the other members will not tolerate bullying of any kind. This includes:
1. Exclusion. We are ALL a family. No ifs, ands or buts. We’re basically the more modern and less rebellious version of the gang.
2. Bullying. ‘Nuff said.
3. Being territorial over any or all the boys. They are not your possessions, so don’t treat them as such. Please keep in mind that there are so many other people who probably have the same feelings as you do for one of the characters, and act with empathy. Also, it can be quite annoying when someone is trying to headcanon or imagine and there’s another person complaining about how “Dally is my husband” or “Darry is MY BOYFRIEND.”
4. We are here for you. If you need anything, we’ll take care of you. You’re a part of our group, and you will be accepted as you are (given you meet the guidelines).
5. Please try and keep this chat Outsiders related, if we’re in fandoms. Not all of us are into each and every book or movie, and the goal is to find common ground. Please keep it that way.

•video calls/scheduling
-like I promised, there will be video calls where we get to see each other face to face, unless you’re uncomfortable (which is completely acceptable). Please keep in mind that people have different levels of comfort when exposing information on the internet, and may not be ok with sharing certain tidbits of information with you, and that’s alright!
- @emilyyyyyyy-0 is the co-leader, and it’s up to her, but I will be incredibly busy up until June 19th, so I cannot guarantee availability on calls.
-we’ll aim for once a week, and it’s alright if you can’t make it. We all have lives outside of this, and it’s important that we don’t lose touch with our own realities.

•what to do next:
-after you have read (not skimmed) and completely comprehended this post, send me your Skype. I’ll compile a list and I will create a chat hopefully sometime next weekend (again, can’t guarantee).
-I’ll hopefully post a list of the blogs that are participating in this chat, so you guys can familiarize yourselves beforehand (however, I don’t want little cliques to form. The chat is basically one big clique that’s inclusive).

Thank you so much for reading, and message me if you have any questions/comments/concerns!

Sincerely,
Sophie ♥️

From Theron Shan’s Instagram Account:
since we couldnt make bail lana & i had to come up w/ a different method to convince the authorities to let us get back on our way. we kindly explained our situation with them & talked things out like rational adults—adults that happen to always have a little bit of c4 stashed away on their person for just such an occasion. hell if we’re already wanted by the law what’s a little jailbreak going to hurt @ this point? now i just have to make sure the charge is set properly and——-

anonymous asked:

Did something happen to the discord chat? I tried checking it out today but ??? It worked fine for me last night. If I got kicked out idk why because I only ever said maybe 2 things in chat?

Hey, sorry if I am a bit late replying to this.

The B.A.P group chat is temporarily closed.

there was an incident that made us mods realise that we weren’t taking appropriate actions to keep the group chat safe for all our members. things reached a bit of a tipping point with how quickly new members were joining the group and we ended up removing about half the members and deactivating the invitation links (which is why the link in the tumblr post about it does not currently work), this happened during Friday/Sunday and since then we’ve taken steps to making the chat more appropriate for minors as well as making sure the more private things some members may post aren’t as easily accessible for new, unknown, members.

Now the server has settled after the changes and is more stable and organised, so we will soon be opening the server again (I will make a new post when that happens); people joining back after having been kicked will be able to check the announcements channel for more thorough info about what’s happened.

If you were kicked from the chat know that it was not for a personal reason, we were just trying to downsize the server to well-known members to get it under control. Anyone who was part of the server is more than welcome back once the server is open again and we hope you do not hold it against us.

Self dx. So Ive heard other autistics are more aware of people's boundaries, bc lots of us have issues w touch and stuff so it makes sense... but for me its always been otherwise. Because it involved knowing what was socially appropriate and inappropriate and reading cues/correctly interpreting that no, someone really doesnt want me to hug/poke/touch them, and I didnt know as a kid and i still find myself fumbling with it. Is that an autie thing?

Yep! Many autistic people struggle to understand personal boundaries because these are social rules which are something we tend to struggle with. We also tend to struggle with reading body language which makes it hard to tell if our touch is wanted. 

-Sabrina

Usually arab moms, when they want to scold you, make ad'iyah like ‘may Allah help you’ or 'may Allah forgive you’. The thing is those are supposed to be the ad'iyah we ask others to make for us, but because i’ve grown up with this kind of scolding now i just get a bad feeling whenever someone makes such ad'iyah.

anonymous asked:

Salam sister. I don't like asking people to make a dua for me as I feel like I don't deserve it but please make a dua for me to remove this sadness (possibly depression?) away from my heart due to the sins I've committed. it's gotten to the point where I blame myself for everything. I want good things to happen in my life and I'm thankful I'm alive and well but I've disappointed my Creator and family and I feel like I'm losing my mind. I'm sorry for rant. jazakallah khayr.

Walekum As Salam.
I am so so sorry for a late reply; I saw this just now 😓
And of course I will make dua for you. But don’t give up on making dua for yourself too okay?
We all make mistakes and sin, that’s what makes us humans after all. But Allah knows that and that’s how He created us: with the tendencies to sin. And thus He has opened His doors of forgiveness for all His servants.
So don’t despair of asking Him for forgiveness again and again. Don’t think your sins are too much, for Allah is the greatest and His Mercy is greater than all our sins combined.
Just because you sin doesn’t mean you can’t ask or expect Allah to grant you good things. Make sincere repentance all day, every day and make dua for everything your heart desires. Allah loves those who constantly turn to Him.
So keep turning back to Him, no matter how many times you fall.
May Allah forgive your sins, and allow you to increase in your good deeds, and to abandon all the bad deeds that displease Him. May He grant you happiness and success in this world and the next as well. May He fulfil your desires in the best of ways and as blessings for you. May He allow you to draw nearer to Him and to always turn back to Him.
May He allow us all to reach Ramadan and make the best of the blessed month. Ameen

“Villainous”: Why you shouldn’t  throw shit at this show

Okay, so over the past days you may noticed a lot of fanart and posts about a particular show: “Villainous” (or “Villanos” in spanish). This is actually a mini series that is transmited between comercials for Cartoon Network México. Is about a villain (Black Hat) who tries to make the most evil and succesful artefacts for villains, along with Dr Flug, Demencia and 5.0.5.

So, what’s the problem with this mini-series?

There’s a few flaws that people have been complaining about, the most important of those being Markiplier voicing 5.0.5, a problematic artist (LemonTeaFlower) working on this show, etc.

Ignoring those facts, “Villainous” is pretty funny and entertaining to watch, and the animation and art style is really good. Is not the humour that everybody likes, but I personally enjoy it. But actually neither the characters or the plot are the reason im encouraging you to support this show.

This is the first ever cartoon (for Cartoon Network) created entirely by mexicans.

As a mexican, I can’t describe how happy I am to know that my country is finally making big steps in the animation industry, this is a huge opportunity for people like me, who aspire to be an animator but don’t have the resources to get out of their country.

And, if this show gets enough positivity and fame, Ai Studios, the animation studios who made this show, might actually do more cartoons! Better cartoons, with better plots and characters!

Let me tell you something, if Ai Studios doesn’t start making more cartoons, there’s literally no job opportunity in Mexico for aspiring animators. You either go to the U.S or forget about animation.

And yeah, this show might seem cringey, (well, it started developing in 2007, what did you expect?) and as I said it has some problematic aspects, but I dont think this is the right time to start making callout posts and discourse blogs for this cartoon. It hasn’t even aired in the U.S yet and there are already pleople complaining. And I don’t blame them, I would callout those things too if I didn’t already know how important this show is for Ai Studios, how important this show is for mexicans.

Many of the people who complain about it don’t even know that this show is made by mexicans and the opportunities it could give to us. So, what i’m asking you to do is simple.

Don’t throw shit at this show.

I’m not asking you to praise it, I’m not asking you to make fanart for it. I’m asking you to leave it alone, and leave alone the people who are enjoying it.

How can we do better if you don’t even give us the opportunity to make more cartoons?  

So yeah, that’s basically it. I’m not saying everyone should watch it and enjoy it, I mean, if you want to do it go ahead. I’m just saying it would be kind of egoistical to make discourse blogs and callout posts for the first mexican cartoon made by a new animation studio that just came out 3 days ago. 

Let us have this, please.
