Woman of Letters - Part Seven

Asthetic made by the lovely @hanny-writes-spn 

A/N: Part 7 of my WoL series. This is kind of an in between part, so just bare with me. My original plan was to post twice a week, but this series isn’t getting a lot of feedback, so I’m gonna start writing some of the other things I have on my list, and post this once a week. Thanks to my wonderful beta @thorne93. Feedback is always appreciated.

Summary: When Louisa finds an old, unopened letter from her great grandfather, she leaves her old life behind to go search for a man named Henry Winchester, hoping he has some answers for her. What she finds is beyond her wildest imagination, but she is determined to continue her family’s legacy.

“It’s not fear, you’re a giant,” Louisa joked. It was just after noon and she and Sam had been sparring for almost two hours now, she was exhausted, and her muscles were aching. No matter how hard she tried, she could not pin Sam to the ground.

“Well, I can use my size to my advantage, but so can you,” Sam explained, brushing his long hair out of his face. Yes, Louisa was a lot smaller than him, but she was quick and Sam tried to get her to use that against him. “We won’t stop before you get me pinned to the floor.”

“Fuck you, Winchester,” she chuckled as she sat up her stance again. She was truly exhausted, but she was also determined to get this done.

Dean walked through the gym doors just in time to see Louisa pop her hip out and fling Sam over her shoulder, his massive body hitting the floor with a thud and a loud groan before she twisted his arm and placed a knee on his chest. She looked absolutely beat. Her hair sticking out of her ponytail, her cheeks red and her skin covered in a thin layer of sweat. Dean had a hard time taking his eyes off of her as her face lit up in pride. Sam could easily have gotten out of her hold, but it looked like he decided to let her have the win. That’s just one of the many differences between Dean and his little brother, Dean would have kept going until she got it right. Giving her a false sense of security like this would only put her in more harm out in the real world.

“Tell me I can go shower or I swear to god I will twist your arm off,” she threatened with a bright smile on her face, which made Sam laugh and Dean had to fight back his own smile. She sure was feisty.

“Since I kind of need my arm,” Sam answered thoughtfully and she released her grip on him.

“Dean,” Louisa exclaimed as she turned around to get her towel. “I didn’t see you there.”

Hi! I’m looking for someone to talk to everyday and who would like to one day become great friends with me.
I’m the very talkative type of person but I also don’t mind being on my own. I’m an ENFJ and capricorn and I really like to read ( mostly YA fiction), I draw a lot because it calms me down and helps me illustrate my ideas so I’m working on a sketchbook basically… I really like history so if you’re into that and like to share whatever you know we will instantly kick off ☺️
In a penpal I would prefer someone to be the same age as me or a year older and I would like for them to not give up easily on getting to know me ☺️

Preferences: Someone from 17-18 ( age)

T6T a TV SHOW?

ARE THEY META-ING THEIR OWN SHOW?

IN LIGHT OF THIS POST:

WHAT IF T6T was literally an episode of Business Killer, or the tall tale that was enacted for the episode in the episode?

    • Like they mention John’s blog a LOT.
    • Sherlock CONSTANTLY says his full name.
    • They’re rehashing a case from John’s blog and adding ridiculous details to “het it up”
    • John’s “blog” is a graphic (which Arwel KNOWS about) and the “blog before baby”
    • They’re literally “giving the public what it asked for” and it “failed” because it doesn’t feel right.
    • The fucking camera in the fucking frame!!
    • The REALLY OOC letter from Mary to John
    • John’s cheating is thrown in as a soap opera element
    • The constant repeating of scenes, like they’re doing “another take” and the repeat of narration
    • Product placement??
    • Mary just suddenly appearing at Craig’s.
    • The disappearing policemen at the end.
    • The “pull at your heartstrings” moments at the end.
    • The overdramatic Mary arc.
    • The repeat of music and lines from past episodes
    • The literal word-for-word AGRA definition from Wikipedia
    • JOHN DOESN’T TEXT THAT FAST EVER

TOTAL CRACK THEORY, but I’m putting it out there anyway. Like it’s ALSO the Alibi theory, but what if it’s being “acted out” and exposed as a lie?

Sorry if someone else wrote this, please link me to it!  Add your own inconsistencies that could prove it. 

Two Worlds Pt. 1: John Laurens x Alexander Hamilton’s Sister Reader

In collaboration with: @desperatepenguin722 who has been doing amazing ask Ham’s every weekend. Love you!

Word Count: 1317

A/N: In this story, you’re Alexander Hamilton’s sister, a freshman at the same college that your brother attends. I’m really proud of this one. I hope you like it!


Your first day of college was something you had been waiting for since your first day of high school, four years ago. The day you got your acceptance letter to Columbia University was such a blessing. You screamed when you saw the letter and rushed inside to call your brother.

You carried the family name of Hamilton and, because of your brother, that name had a lot of stock behind it. Alex passed every class with flying colors. Every time you walked in the classroom, the first question they asked was, ‘Is your brother Alexander Hamilton?’ You always replied ‘yes’ with a sigh.

It wasn’t that you didn’t love your brother. You adored him. Maybe you were jealous of him sometimes, but you would never admit that. He was your number one cheerleader and sometimes even your best friend. So, when you called Alex with your acceptance, he was even more excited than you were. You knew that it was mostly because he went to Columbia as well and this gave him a chance to look after you again, which was something he loved. He was overbearing and overportective, but sometimes it was sweet.

How To Write A Cover Letter When You Have No Experience

For students who have no fancy internships or summer jobs on their razor-thin résumés, here’s some advice:

1) The first paragraph should say who you are, where you go to school, what the job is that you’re applying for and how you came to apply. It helps a lot if you can include a name of someone with a personal connection.

2) The second paragraph has to connect the dots between you and the employer. Describe how your experiences meet the challenges presented in the job description.

3) In the third paragraph, further describe your personal traits and how they make you a great candidate for the job.

4) To wrap up, say when you’ll get in touch.

5) In most cases, send the letter as an attachment and format it like an old-fashioned business letter with your address at the top, then the date and then the address of the recipient.

6)  Proofread carefully and get someone you trust to check for spelling, grammar and word use.

How to Adult: Cover Letter Edition

So I have several followers who are working on applying to jobs right now, and by far the most common concern is “what even is a cover letter??”  Now, while this post is funny and accurate, it’s not super helpful if you’re looking for specifics.  So I figured I should show you mine.  Now, without further ado, allow me to provide to you:

~*~ The Cover Letter of Destiny ~*~

[Name]
[Address Line 1]
[Address Line 2, etc]
[Phone]
[email]

[Right Justified - Date]  (This is just standard business letter stuff)

To Whom it May Concern, [Or Mr/Ms. Hiring Person’s name, if you can find it.] 

I’m delighted to submit an application for the [Job you’re applying to] position at [Company/Institution/etc].  After reading the job description I’m certain I would bring a solid combination of  [Skill 1], analytical thinking [or whatever Skill 2 is], and communication skills [This is always my Skill 3] to this position.  I’m particularly attracted to this position because I believe it will utilize the skills I have gained through my industry [or research or whatever] experience, and allow me to apply those skills in new areas. 

In my role with [Company] as a [Most Relevant Position Here], I managed a project [to do some stuff - flesh out your most important/relevant job responsibilities here].  I specifically focused on [a thing that is the most explicitly relevant to the job posting.  In fact, I creatively copy/pasted some of the job posting into this sentence, that’s how relevant it is.].  I was also responsible for [A couple of things that maybe were mentioned in the job posting, or at least show increased responsibility over time].  This gave me the opportunity to collaborate with a variety of different team members [to achieve a goal]. Through these and other job duties, I have gained excellent listening skills and the ability to carry out self-directed tasks in the context of a larger team. [i’m not joking. use this phrasing it’s so great just copy it idgaf]

 In my current role as a [Current Title] with [Company], I have continued to build strong skills in project management [or whatever] as well as clear oral and written communication. [Maybe this sentence describes the types of communication (or whatever skill) you do.]   [This sentence describes briefly the less-relevant work you do].  [This sentence ties in your less-relevant job to the job you are seeking].  These experiences have prepared me well to succeed in a role as [Name of Position you’re applying to].

Thank you for taking the time to review my materials and consider my application. I am excited at the prospect of applying my skills to a [Name or category of position] with [Company], and I feel that the knowledge and skills I have gained through my experience will be a great benefit to the team. Please do not hesitate to contact me with questions as I would welcome a chance to discuss this opportunity more. [After all, they want to hire you after reading this]

Regards,

 [First Name Last Name]

I hope you find this helpful in your job search!  Just remember to focus on skills you learned rather than specific experiences or titles you’ve had.  Don’t be afraid of inflating it too far, either.  There are real useful skills underlying every job task if you look hard & get creative with your phrasing. 

Feel free to send me an ask if you want any specific advice on how to spin your education/work history into the job you want, or if you want a proofreader or cheerleader or whatever.  Job hunting is a bad game designed by and for a certain type of person.  It’s dehumanizing and horrible even at the best of times, so I’m more than happy to help anyone find a way to beat the system.  <3 <3 

This Was The Perfect Vlog

so Jaspar, Zalfie, Janya, Sean and Poppy, Niomi, Marky, and a few others all went to Tulley’s Farm and pretty much everyone vlogged but Caspar’s….aw Caspar’s

he and Joe are going to play a lot of I Spy on the tour 

Joe and Caspar literally went through the haunted house together HOW CUTE IS THAT

Joe and Caspar both really like that side of the car and so Joe said that they’re going “to have to spoon” 

Caspar’s poor ear was still blocked but he got it to feel better

they played a game where you had to bring something to camp that started with the first letter of your name and it had to make sense

….jaspar went to a haunted house together and there were mentions of spooning

jaspar is so not dead you guys 

jamaicanrage  asked:

Where does the name dnopls come from? And what's your single favorite song from Streets of Rage?

one of these days i won’t be super late in replying to these, i promise

My real name is Dean but my family’s never really called me that, they’ve always called me Dino. Both of those have 4 letters. As I’m sure you’re aware, I play a lot of old-ass shit. In Ye Olden Times, most games only allowed players to put 3 letters into the high score board, so like

how the hell do I write either of these words

Ah. That worta works.

The “pls” has no specific reason for being there, I got no lore for that one.

To answer your other question, the boss theme from SOR2.

aradeia  asked:

Hello! I don't know if you've answered a similar question before, but what are some good books about Clodius Pulcher and Fulvia? I'm really interested in learning more about them and their contemporaries. Do you have any favorites? Any books to avoid? Thank you! :)

The short answer is: there’s not much so mostly I take what I can find in works about other more “big-name” historical figures. 
The ancient sources have some information about them if you really look- some more than others. Cicero’s letters from  the year 61 or so (when Clodius invaded the Bona Dea rites)  up until Clodius’s death in 52 have a lot of information about his political decisions, actions, and behavior although of course they’re colored by Cicero’s interpretation and personal enmity. The BEST Cicero letters about Clodius are from 60/59 when Clodius becomes a plebeian / becomes tribune / takes power, there’s a lot of detailed descriptions of Clodius’s political maneuvers and alliances and he’s REALLY frustrated about Clodius manipulating the adoption process for his plebeian transfer and has Something to Say. His speeches also, though they’re more exaggerated than his letters, have fun things to say about Clodius, and he talks about Fulvia JUST a little too in a few of them (thinking about the pro milone and the philippics specifically)

History writers like Plutarch and Appian talk about Clodius as a violent, deranged agent of chaos which is a harsh oversimplification but they’ve got Cicero as their main source so. Clodius gets a shout-out in Lucullus’s biography (the mutiny), Cicero’s of course, and Caesar’s (since they were allies- side note this is the only Plutarch biography that even attempts to provide a balanced picture of Clodius as Plutarch says Clodius won the favor of his constituents through ‘beneficial laws’). He’s also mentioned in Pompey’s and Antony’s biographies i believe (since Antony was in w/ the crowd). 

Speaking of Antony, the majority of the Fulvia content we have comes from writings about Antony. Plutarch’s life of Antony has… THE most amazing Fulvia characterization, and the same Roman historians who mentioned Clodius probably have a few more lines about Fulvia because of her marriage to Antony. We don’t have the bulk of direct primary source information we do about Clodius (god bless cicero’s hatred for him tbh…. we get so much from it like the Pro Caelio is the gift that never stops giving) but she gets more focus from historians because of her power at the end of the republic, her marriage to Mark Antony, and her war against Octavian. Cassius Dio and Appian i know eventually write about the Perusine war & Fulvia’s political activities; her political impact also gets special notice bc its so rare a woman had as much influence as she did. 

Those are the ancient sources- there’s a biography of Clodius called ‘The Patrician Tribune’ you could read if you want Clodius’s life in exquisite detail. I purchased it and loved every second of it and livetweeted it also. I don’t know if there’s an equivalent for Fulvia but basically every Mark Antony biography has to go on a Fulvia tangent eventually and I just kind of piece all of that information together..

Hope this helps!

Somehow I always knew
I’d bite the curb out spills the proof
The letter in your pocket now I can’t escape the truth
Surprises so violent stop with the silence
Who is she to you

Tell me why tell me why my whole world’s starting to shake
Cause ain’t nobody ever tell you what it feels like when you’re bout to break
I get nervous, tell me what’s her name
I see a lot of missed calls and now I’m going off don’t tell me it’s ok
A storm is swallowing this interstate
When it rains it pours and the pain is coming in waves
Stay surfaced, love can’t hold you down
So I will drive

Slow me down
I’m burning out of control so far from heaven now
Pull me back
Slow me down
It’s like you’ve stolen my soul, so far from heaven now

I can’t stand that streetlight I’m rolling out of bed
Again I belong to the night, I’m a mess
Pull me over, I can’t forget her name
Or my urge to put this barrel to your face
This storm is swallowing my sanity
And all our memories are tainted with her cheap perfume
Eighteen years thrown away in a day
Somebody stop me now, before I get to you

Slow me down
I’m burning out of control so far from heaven now
Pull me back
Slow me down
It’s like you’ve stolen my soul, so far from heaven now

My son, I gotta thank you for calling
Not sure who I would be if you stopped looking out for me

Somehow I always knew
Let me know when I need to
Slow you down, you’re burning out of control
So far from heaven now

Slow me down
I’m burning out of control so far from heaven now
Pull me back
Slow me down
It’s like you’ve stolen my soul, so far from heaven now

You’ve got to
Slow me down
I’m burning out of control so far from heaven now
Pull me back
Slow me down
It’s like you’ve stolen my soul, so far from heaven now

anonymous asked:

could I have a letter from newt please! My name is Bailey!

My dearest, Bailey


How’s New York fairing for you? Last I checked, the weather is no longer too cold…is it? I certainly hope not. I fear I’m not close enough to lend you my coat this time, love. So stay warm, and preferably indoors. You’re far too clumsy to walk around on ice and snow….remember when you dragged me down into the ice with you? My case slid across the frozen lake and the erumpent got out again….mating dances can take quite a lot out of you. I fear I wouldn’t be prepared to do that again…

Now, if I may suggest you build a nice fire and have a cup of tea for me. I do miss your tea, it’s truly the finest I’ve had. Afraid I must go now, darling. The creatures need tending to.

Lovingly yours,

Newt
