Not So Friendly Les Mis Reminder:

THIS:

Is not the villian of Les Mis.

Really.

Not the villian.

This is a man who has lived by a strong moral code his whole life, and who for the first time realizes that the world he sees as black and white, is in fact a million different shades of grey. 

This is a man who had nothing and nobody his whole life EXCEPT that code, and when it is stripped away, is left with nothing.

And when he dies, he STILL has nothing because essentially, nothing changes. Nobody grieves, nobody cares.


Should you be interested in a villian:

THESE are two people who happily scam people out of money, rob off the dead and are just generally horrible people. 

They were also the two who had five children, sold two of them, and couldn’t give a toss that two of them are dead.

I wanted to ask this question for a long time, but since I started school I've been busy. @_@ Ironically, I'm free today despite it being my birthday... *<:/ Anyway, you said Oikawa and Iwaizumi were already past their first kiss and were dating, right? How and when did that happen? It's obvious they're dating now, but how did they get together? Also, how did they deal with the distance, if Iwa-chan only comes in the summer? Sorry is I'm asking for a lot, you're doing an amazing job as always!

Happy birthday!!!! I hope you have a great one  °˖✧◝(⁰▿⁰)◜✧˖°

Hajime was about 14? Last year before High School and he was complaining about school being boring and his friends all dropping baseball because they started dating. It was very child like tbh. Sweet, cute, innocent. (it’s this memory from the comics)

As for the relationship, it’s really like a long distance relationship. Gotta thank technology for letting ppl get in touch hehehe. 

I’ve noticed that a lot of super pro-black women date white men and I just don’t understand it? I’m not trying to judge, but I don’t get how you can be so pro-black and socially concious and aware of racism on a systematic level and still date someone who essentially benefits from racism. I have nothing against interracial relationships either, it’s just strange to me. If I dated outside my race, I would rather it be with another minority who understands systematic racism, microagressions, ect

  • me:*sweating*
  • me:the meaninglessness of human existence and the realization that everything we accomplish essentially means nothing in the grand scheme of things.

hey just out of curiosity what do u think of tanaka??? i think he def knows way more than he lets on (like i'm p sure he knows sebastian is a demon, or not human)

OMG YOU KNOW I WAS THINKING ABOUT THIS TODAY ACTUALLY

i was thinking of like “who will find out who sebastian is first” and automatically, i thought of, not Tanaka, but of Finny

Finny is kind of air headed, but of the five other servants (not counting sebastian), he is the most worried/protective of Ciel. this means finny looks out for strange things the most, seeing what could hurt the boy who gave him a live, basically. we’ve already seen him use is strength against sebastian, and have it do essentially nothing against sebastian’s demon strength. then being confused to why he didn’t even budge when he was using all of his power. that there ladies and gentlemen and everyone else is foreshadowing

//sort of related is in the anime, when finny saw the picture of sebastian and ciel, he questioned why sebastian was in the picture if only dead things could be in them

but then i thought of wise, old, tanaka. and i was like. y’know. i have a feeling that he knows something is going on but feels like ciel/anyone isn’t threatened by it so he just doesn’t say anything?? idk though!! 

my personal feelings on tanaka: i love him ほほほ

teiki-tekina asked:

can you pls say how did you get into this? (art line) was it easy? did you struggle ? did you do mistakes? i just saw your tumblr and fell in love. love you lots~~

^_^ hi there! oh wow! how many questions!!
first things first!


♡ personally, I think to still be at the beginning of my way…there still is a long way to go and a lot of things to learn…then I think that the artistic path of each artist is a really personal thing and it’s different for any person…
obviously it won’t be a simple thing for no one, and during the path is normal to make mistakes or to follow a wrong way…but I think that errors are essential to grow up and improve ourselves… so there is nothing bad in committing errors as soon as you will learn something from them. ^_^

♡ for my paintings I mostly use watercolor technique…I use both watercolors paint then water soluble markers (like uni posca) …

♡ ^_^ well, I don’t think that you should necessarily need high quality tools for making good art … when I started painting, I’ve found a lot of good products at a good price to work with… like stabilo pen markers (there are also water-soluble) and uni posca markers…
starting earning something with my art gave me the opportunity to try new techniques with more expensive materials…
you just have to try the most number of tools and techniques in order to find the best way to express your talent! :) hope this will help you! good luck! ♥ ♥ ♥

* in my about section you will find much more infos about me, my art and my tools and also some interviews ^_^

OKAY LEMONFUCKERS, LISTEN UP!

Since I haven’t done anything to celebrate my 8k, I decided to official my lemonfucker squad. In case you didn’t see, I’ve been flooded with messages of people asking me to be part of it. So do you want to join? Send me a ask! 

What is a lemonfucker? 
Essentially, nothing. It started as a  joke but since shruggingintothevoid make these awesome logos, I decided to do this post. A lemonfucker is just a very amorous and cute nickname for my dearest friends and followers. 

What being a lemonfucker means?
Essentially, nothing. HOWEVER I made this page here to link all my lemonfuckers. So I’ll never forget you, PLUS I’ll be divulging your pages so I hope you gain new followers, which you all deserve a lot.

And, most importantly, you’ll be a proud owner of the following logo (also made by shruggingintothevoid):

I starded linking people who are already lemonfuckers (if you want to remove it, just ask me, sweeties): awildfangirlhasappeared marvelousmoony wakeupontheprongssideofthebed thestrxlss marauder-trash snatchmescabior lady-raven-mouse shruggingintothevoid dracoluciuspotter

ps: a lot of people asked me on anon so I can’t link them. If you’re one of them, don’t be shy and let me know who you are!

blueberry-belle asked:

What was venus's LTW? and what's Lilith's?

Venus’s is master of mythicism and Lilith’s is Great Explorer. For future reference, all their Nox’s lifetime wishes and other stuff is on their legacy page, if you’re ever curious again :)

sinsoo asked:

random question, but i like your theories and essays about TG so i figured it wouldn't hurt to ask you. do you think there is any significance to the fact we know essentially nothing about Kaneki's father? do you think we'll eventually learn more about him in the future and if it will be of any plot significance?

Nah, I don’t think it’s random at all, feel free to ask! Thank you for the kind words as well! .u.

I really like what littlemissymonster had to say on the matter, I couldn’t wrap it up better than this, you can read her comment here {x}

In TG sometimes both parental figures play a big role in the mentality of their children and the way they their characters are “shaped” (for example Hinami and Eto). But other times one of the parental figures plays a much more influential role than the other parent in the life of their child. A few examples:

Amon lost both of his parents, but is very influenced by his paternal figure, Donato.

Yamori was addressing his mother when he was agonizing in pain.

Rize on the other hand, addressed her father figure.

Kaneki has referred to both his parents, but considerably a lot more to his mother (I think he says ‘father’ only once, in the fight with Arima). The maternal figures in his life are what influence him the most and often determine his course of action in important situations. So it wouldn’t be a surprise if we don’t get much about Kaneki’s father, but if we do it’ll definitely be interesting and most likely significant to the plot.

I couldn’t reblog this nonsense because she probably has me blocked 😂but here’s the thing though. Grow the fuck up. You were called out because you are one of those really annoying people who are afraid to admit they don’t know something so they’ll just answer any which way, no matter if it’s totally inaccurate and essentially making yourself look like a dumb ass. It has nothing at all to do with popularity that I didn’t notice luciferlaughs post, if I would have, I wouldn’t have any problem telling them so because I suspect no one wants to have inaccurate posts on their blog. I know I don’t and I would appreciate it if anyone told me I did so I could correct it. And you want to sit here and whine about it and instead of just being cool with someone informing you of your false information, you want to make sad excuses. Sigh.

Keep your hexes in jars, sealed in tight for freshness. Watch them as they age, put up carefully next to the preserves and the jams. Open when you need it, smelling as fresh as the day you put it in there.

Keep your curses bundled together and tied with ribbon; hang them from the rafters. Let them wither and dry out until there’s nothing left but their essential flavor. Store them with the other green things in your kitchen, ready to use at a moment’s notice. Age plays with the flavor.

Keep your blessings in the dirt, planted deep in the darkest soil you can find. Nurture them carefully, weeding, pruning, picking. Watch them flower, come to the fullness of their life, then sleep in the winter, knowing they can bloom again with a little care.

Lifehacker Pack for Linux: Our List of the Essential Linux Apps
With so many flavors of Linux and the awesome apps in their repositories, finding the right app for getting things done can be tough. In our annual Lifehacker Pack for Linux, we’re highlighting the must-have downloads for better productivity, communication, media management, and more.

Nothing shocking here. I love Synapse, too. But I think everyone should have gedit and that’s not listed here. And I’ve actually really gotten into the Brackets editor, which kicks butt with Asciidoc. Atom gets a lot of love, but Brackets is worth a look, too. I think Brackets has a better Linux implementation.

I’m more upset with how the show runners are reacting to the fan dissatisfaction than I am with the actual finale, and I think that’s why I can’t let it go. Between Marlene and Norman basically saying that our opinions mean nothing and that we essentially have no right or reason to be upset, I’m just really pissed off that I’ve spent so much of my time digging deep into this show. Because of them, I’m never going to be able to be as into the show as I was before because they only appreciate us when we’re praising what they’re doing.

“The idea of Secret Garden is one that everyone can relate to. We all have landscapes inside us, secret rooms where feelings and impressions grow as a little garden. We have individual ways of finding this garden. Some talk about it, write poems or letters, paint, or even take a walk to reflect over life. We all have our own way. But what is common to us, is a strong emotional feeling that is an essential part of our nature.” -Rolf Lovland

I just wanted to thank you for making this blog a thing. I turned 18 in March, yet I knew next to nothing except the bare essentials and stereotypes about the varying political parties in Canada and their platforms. Thanks to you, I've not only been able to educate myself but members of my immediate family who have been Stephen Harper supporters for no real reason.

I’m glad to hear that. It gives me motivation to keep this blog up to date knowing its helping people and making a difference in peoples lives.
