I do really appreciate that despite my really lagging schedule when the comes to the story there is still somehow interest in it.
And I do plan to finish it, but school. I’m theoretically on my last days of school ever. Semester projects, normal school projects and potential client work has simply left me an overworked mess running on coffee and pure stubbornness.
When this stretch is over I will sleep for a week, then I’ll build my queue up, and then and finally then I’ll get working on some sweet sweet story updates.
So JRed is doing some theatre later on this year (good for her!) which hopefully means another break from Holby so she can return. So either CRuss will have a suuuper long break and they’ll come back together, with JRed’s absence written as her going to have an extended holiday with Serena at the end of her sabbatical. Or CRuss will return and the first dramatic!plot for Serena on her return will be trying to navigate the hospital again without Bernie who has been drafted back into service (which seems likely - they’ve started adding more Bernie military references into the script again, and heightened security in Britain is meaning that the military could theoretically need Bernie to train recruits or something). As long as she comes back I’ll be happy.
Can a cutie mark change if a pony's interests and passions change? For example lets say somepony loves watchmaking and gets a cutie mark for it, but later in life they lose that passion and become passionate about dancing. Since they no longer like or practice watchmaking, would the mark change to reflect their new passion for dancing?
I suppose it would, theoretically. But cutie marks represent what you are meant to do, your purpose and your passion. It’s not just a casual interest that you tire of, it’s basically who you are. As such, I don’t think the case you describe would actually happen.
There have been cases when ponies lost touch with their cutie mark and needed help to reconnect, to find themselves again. But the cutie mark never went away, and they didn’t find happiness without embracing it.
We’re still learning what a cutie mark fully does and what it means, and possibly we might see odd cases we never expected in the future. It would be quite exciting, really!
//i know it’s dumb but, mark hasn’t officially said goodbye to spn yet. not explicitly anyway. he’s thanked us for the ride (which is nice and he did it before at cons, although now it obviously seems more serious) and criticized the cut, but also said “fitting for the end of s12″ - not the end of his character/spn/crowley. he’s also only explicitly said his time with creation conventions is gonna be over after 2017. And time for something new, which could theoretically be the con thing because he’s got new cons waiting for him and maybe other appearances on tv too. Could always be he’s gone back to a side character, not a main character anymore. The cast hasn’t said anything to him either, which is really weird. And EW and others make sure to say “seemingly” and “apparently” and “his death could stick” etc. I know, I know. I just can’t believe the writers would let go of a fan magnet like him.. idk. I know others died, too, but we’re talking Crowley/Mark here. I’m being delusional, but eh. XD
I’m really in love with the idea that a lot of Plague-Magic is really just Flesh-Magic. The ability to warp and deform and grow and destroy living flesh and bone is unique to plague, and while yes, most elemental magics have developed some form of healing or physical manipulation, Plague dragons are the real masters of it. Their magic isn’t just the crude spreading of disease, it’s the alteration of things that live, and all the little things that live within them.
Basically, my thought is if disease = bacteria (or virus, but ignore those for a sec I don’t understand them), small creatures that infect and destroy, and plague dragons can, theoretically, summon or activate or invoke these tiny creatures, who’s not to say a skilled bacterimancer couldn’t level up and start manipulating more developed creatures?? Plague is almost in a way the Fauna to Nature’s Flora, oops.
This is also why I believe that while shapeshifting magic comes mostly out of the Tangled Woods, early breed-changing and the like came out of the Scarred Wasteland.
How can a man genuinely and sincerely atone for male privilege/abuses/crimes? How can I strive to be a man who fully rehabilitates and commits to female liberation from male toxicity? Is it possible? Should I even try, or is presumptuous? Truly seeking guidance.
If you’re genuinely interested in unlearning the masculinity you have been socialized in to, that’s going to take a lot of self awareness and honest reflection and you’re going to have to face the fact that you’ve probably done more shitty things than you would like to admit.
So the first step would be to admit what those things are and be honest about them. The second step would be to try to help other men achieve this awareness as well, and create a new culture of respect and empathy to replace the culture of dominance and entitlement.
It means considering women’s perspectives of situations within the context of a woman’s collective life experiences rather than in an abstract theoretical vacuum–actually trying to put yourself in a woman’s shoes when women are discussing what men do to us.
Ok, I just need to vent for a second… hopefully when I’m done I won’t feel as thoroughly annoyed as I do now…
So, I had an appointment to get my PPD read at 2:45 at my doctor’s office. (This is a required annual test to renew my foster care license.) When I got there (10 minutes early), apparently every nurse in the place was at a meeting. So I sat down to wait.
Now, a PPD read takes less than five minutes. Ray had his 9-month well-baby visit scheduled for 3:30. It takes 15 minutes to drive from my doctor’s office to his daycare, 5 minutes to sign him out, and less than 5 minutes to get to his pediatrician. For those of you playing at home, theoretically, I should have gotten Ray to his pediatrician’s office with at least 15 minutes to spare - not accounting for the fact that I was 10 minutes early for my PPD read.
But because of whatever meeting was happening that required all the nurses, I ended up waiting 45 freaking minutes before I was even called in to have my PPD read. At which point it was physically impossible for me to get Ray to his pediatrician on time.
So, being the conscientious person I am, I called his pediatrician’s office from the car to give them a heads up that we would be a few minutes late. At which point the receptionist snapped at me, “You’re going to have to reschedule. We can’t take you late.” Really? You can’t take us 5 to 10 minutes late? Apparently not… So now Ray’s 9-month well-baby visit will occur less than a week before he turns 10 months.
In hindsight, what I could have done is just take the almost-completed foster care form (which I was handed about 35 minutes into my 45-minute wait) and marked the damn PPD test negative myself - because obviously it was negative. Everything else had already been filled out and signed by my doctor. And if I hadn’t called the pediatrician’s office and just shown up with Ray a few minutes late, they probably would have taken us.
In the end, the moral I’m taking from this episode is that I need to be less ethical and less conscientious because other people just suck.
i can't really see myself in the future with a man, but I sorta can..? i don't know if I just need more time to be more comfortable with the idea of a relationship with a man (or men in general). im also at mixed emotions because i think i am sorta still attracted to men, and I don't know if me being attracted to girls was only because; I had heard of the idea of having attraction to girls. helpp?
I’m so sorry that you had to wait so long for my answer -
Okay, frankly, I can’t tell you your sexuality and really don’t feel qualified or comfortable telling anyone “it sounds like you’re a lesbian” or something along those lines. But I’ve read dozens of times that it isn’t real attraction towards men but instead compulsory heterosexuality if you feel like it’s more “artificial” and “hypothetical” - meaning, you think that you could “theoretically” date a guy but you 1) only get feelings for a man after you find out he’s attracted to you, and/or 2) think you have a crush on a man but lose those feelings pretty quickly after you realize he is attracted to you, to and/or makes a move.
Here are some things to think about:
- If you had said to me “i don’t know if I just need more time to be more comfortable with the idea of a relationship with a woman (or women in general)” I would’ve told you about internalized homophobia BUT you said “man”. The thing is, society ingrains heterosexuality and especially the wish for girls to be with guys since the day we’re born so that’s the initial desire, you know? And it’s hard to distinguish where society’s wants and needs end and your own wants and needs begin - check out my compulsory heterosexuality tag for more posts about it. And my questioning tag.
- The phrasing “to be more comfortable” reminds me of these two posts that you should take a look at: first post and second post. Furthermore, you can absolutely call yourself a lesbian if you have no intention of dating a guy even if you “sorta still feel attracted” to them.
- And last but not least: I know there’s the pressure and the desire to figure it all out right now but seriously, you don’t have to rush anything. Your confusion about being only attracted to girls because you’ve heard of the concept of it is really common. Look at this post! Maybe this one helps, too.
My advice is to just feel. That sounds super boring and not helpful at all but believe me, you’ll figure it out. You’ll meet people who’ll make you realize things about yourself and how you feel attraction, what you want and what you don’t want… It’ll all make sense. I promise. Have a little patience and don’t be so hard on yourself :) And whatever you figure out to be, or whatever identity you are along the way - you are valid. Always.
Surrounding yourself with positivity and respectful/positive representation of sapphic women and sapphic relationships is a great way to normalize it for you. Check my media tag for recommendations! Or this post. (However I haven’t seen lots of them so I can’t tell you if they’re actually good.)
general opinion: fall in a hole and die | don’t like them | eh | they’re fine I guess | like them! | love them | actual love of my life hotness level: get away from me | meh | neutral | theoretically hot but not my type | pretty hot | gorgeous! | 10/10 would bang hogwarts house: gryffindor | slytherin | ravenclaw | hufflepuff best quality: his loyalty worst quality: sometimes too damn stubborn ship them with: always carol. lowkey always rick too. brotp them with: rick, aaron, eric needs to stay away from: anything saviors related. pls. misc. thoughts: i will forever love his character no matter what. he has come such a long way and how he actually ended up with a new family after the world went to shit makes me cry so hard every time i think about it. my only hope is that they let him speak normal sentences again..like…my boy is smart, please show us that again.
i will lose a lot of things such as my bike if i am forced to leave suddenly. i can’t take my bike
preferably i would like to take both gobans because they are gifts but idk if i would have the space for both?
i only have a few books and may not be able to take all of them. hikago collection is #1 priority. it’s incomplete which makes it easier to carry
wont be able to take all my clothes
i dont know what carrying will look like i may only be able to take the big luggage and one smaller suitcase, as well as a backpack and tote bag. if i bind some bags together i could theoretically carry more while still being able to move. i’d have to be able to take everything on a plane, train or bus
how did people come up with the name Avery Drake? was it mentioned somewhere? did i miss something?
It’s theoretical. Avery was the name of one of the girls in Sara Harvey’s friend circle from Courtland. If my memory serves me right, Avery was said to be the last one to see Sara before Sara disappeared. A couple of Sara’s friends came to Rosewood and one mentioned Avery was basically a mess after the disappearance (she believed Sara was alive) and was on a lot of medications and slept a lot. We never saw her but her situation was just weird. I originally wondered if maybe Avery was Spencer’s long lost twin because there seemed to be some parallels… then when the show started with “A.D.” a lot of us theorized about Avery being a Drake (Spencer’s twin.) Hope that makes sense.
Today I had the revelation that my half orc has 30ft speed, but because she’s a monk, her unarmored movement is +10ft at Level 3. Using the ki feature Breath of the Wind, she can dash as a bonus action meaning she can go 80ft in a turn.
If anyone cast Haste on my dear sweet Marfu, she would go 160 in six seconds.
At her most perfect Level 20 self’s unarmored movement of +30, she could go a max 120ft in a turn, or 240ft hasted. With 20 ki points to spend that could mean a solid two minutes of going almost 30 miles per hour and I think that’s beautiful.
