they make me like this holiday

niylah  asked:

hey Kat <3 could you write me 'hugged/kissed wrong person in a costume like my friend’s' for your holiday fills please? I love you <333

Thanks for the prompt, Ine! I tweaked this to make it a bit cheekier, shall we say… Hope you enjoy :) Happy Halloween, everyone!!

Halloween fell on a Friday night Clarke’s sophomore year. Given her very full course load, she hadn’t been to a party since early September, but Wells had begged for her to join the festivities at his school. She definitely felt the need to blow off steam at this point in the semester, and Wells was apparently going to be wearing a Chewbacca costume due to some bet he was losing. There wasn’t a chance Clarke was going to miss seeing that. She was feeling lazy in regards to a costume of her own, so after her last class on Friday she dressed all in black, grabbed a pair of cat ears at CVS, and drew some eyeliner “whiskers” on her face in the car on her way out of town.

She left her own campus at 5:00 and reached the address Wells had given her a few hours later. The off campus house was packed with costumed college kids when she arrived. The music was loud, the drinks were flowing, and the dancing had already started. Clarke grinned. After two months of spending all her free time in the library, it was exactly what she needed.

We’ll take care of ourselves and work hard, so I hope Monbebes will also take care and not strain yourselves. I hope you’ll watch out for us with ease. I’m looking forward to our comeback. Somehow I’ve gotten into this career and came to meet our Monbebes, and sometimes I’m really amazed by it. I thought a lot by myself over the Chuseok holidays. At times I really missed you and feel sentimental like that. But thank you for showing me so much love. I’ll make sure to work hard.

anonymous asked:

Do you have any headcanons about trials in Volterra? like how do the Volturi make decisions?

I always find it funny that, in the vampire world, you can speak to the highest judges on a whim. It’s the equivalent of me getting mad at my brother, travelling to Ottawa, bursting in the Chief Justice of Canada’s house (during a holiday, for maximal Edward-similarity) and demanding that she mediate the dispute. 

… as you can tell from the analogy, I think this is a silly way to run a legal system. Instead, I like to think that the Volturi do some or all of the following:

  • Something like a lower court system: Before you get to see Aro, Caius, and Marcus, I should hope that there’s another panel of vampires willing to hear you out. They have all the enforcement powers of the Volturi at their disposal, but they’re more patient and used to dumb undead problems. They’re who you see when your relationship isn’t working out or you’re having the undead equivalent of a fight with your neighbours.

    (This could give some of the more cerebral guards something to do, or create a brand-new administrative branch of the Volturi. Giving something back to society is a good way to disprove accusations of tyranny, I’m just saying.)
     
  • Precedent: The law always hinges on past decisions. So, when the Volturi say, “You’re responsible for your newborn”, the definition of ‘responsible’ and ‘newborn’, is presumably derived from previous vampiric slip-ups. Keeping the vampire community informed of this is probably helpful… unless Caius wants vampires calling him on a Sunday, asking when exactly a newborn stops being a newborn so they can abandon their deeply annoying creations in the woods 

  • The formality of in-Volterra trials: The optics of Aro, Caius, and Marcus holding hands for a bit and then condemning a vampire to death are terrible. You’d think they’d stage a debate, allow the vampire to plead his or her case, deliberate, provide reasons, and so on. It could all be incredibly artifical– with an occasional immortal declared innocent for the sake of appearances– but isn’t it better to have subtle show-trials than the glaringly rigged ones canon describes? 

  • Cool cases: One of the joys of being a high-ranking judge is getting to rule on complex and controversial issues. It’s almost unimaginable to me that Caius and Marcus have a “yes” or a “no” answer ready to go, without 30 pages of justifications and 12312312 hours of research. I have to think that Volturi decisions involve a lot more time and debate than canon implies.

For the rest of you who may be wondering how I POSSIBLY manage living as a fat person, let me explain how I do it: 

I do it by making time for fun things as often as possible. Like riding carousels while morbidly obese. I  have the gall to do this in front of children. 

I do it by making sure my skin is always moisturized and cleansed. I know it’s shocking, but my glowing, fat face feels great after a seaweed-based exfoliant mask. 

I do it by finding time for my interests and hobbies. I’m an amateur mycologist. You may think it’s frightening for a fat forager to find fungi, but I think it’s fantastic.    

I do it by surrounding myself with wholesome, non-judgmental people. A fat person with friends and family?!? It’s more likely than you think. 

I do it by wearing bright colors and taking any opportunity for a photo shoot. Surprisingly, my fatness hasn’t broken a camera yet. 

I do it by singing loudly and flamboyantly. Much as you’ve been told fat people spend 99% of our time gasping for air, I actually have pretty solid breath control. 

I do it by pursuing my education. Don’t worry, they let me skip the part of the bar exam that asks for your BMI.

I do it by having an adorable, supportive partner. We even make out with the lights ON most of the time! 

I do it by creating safe spaces in my home. I love decorating for holidays and dinner parties. The tinsel really compliments my back rolls! 

I do it by adopting fluffy animal friends. Mr. Fluff here may always have a look of existential dread on his face, but he’s not once had a problem with my weight. 

I do it by spending time in nature. Trees and green spaces are very healing! Yes, even for a fatty like me. 

I do it by making this face at people who tell me that since I’m fat I can’t have all the things I already have. I have the audacity to believe that I will one day accomplish all the important goals I have set out for myself!

I’m a fat person and I have value. 
I’m a fat person and I can realize my dreams. 
I’m a fat person and I have a happy, fulfilling life. 

That’s not going to change no matter how many anons send me hateful messages. 

To all my fat family out there, you deserve a support network of caring people who don’t care about your weight. You deserve to achieve your goals. You deserve respect. You deserve happiness. 

Don’t let anyone tell you differently.

Laurel’s Easy Sabbat Planning Guide

For all of the witches who struggle with Sabbats sneaking up on them, here is a guide to help whip up an easy celebration so you never have to miss out on Sabbats again!

A Sabbat is a seasonal festival mostly celebrated by Pagans and Witches. Sabbats are like any other holiday, except these are normally celebrations of the changing of the seasons, or the “turning of the wheel.” Each person will celebrate each Sabbat differently, as each season is completely personal to you.

⛤ The First Step

The first step I recommend to planning a Sabbat celebration is to figure out exactly what the Sabbat is to you. Figure out how you feel about the sabbat and what you naturally associate each one with. This can take some time to work through, especially if you are new to sabbats or if you tend to avoid nature at all costs.

⛤ What to ask yourself:

- What does this Sabbat mean to you?
- What is the Earth doing right now? What does it look like outside your window?
- What is in season (this includes foods, herbs, flowers and decor)?
- How do you feel this time of year? How does this particular Sabbat make you feel? Is this normal?
- What sort of things make you feel “witchy” or connected to this Sabbat?
- Why is this day special to you?

⛤ Things to Do:

- Perform a ritual. Rituals can be as elaborate or as simple as you want them to be. Sometimes all you have to work with is a tealight candle and a week old pack of cookies.

- Cook. Some of us feel connected to the world around us when there is food involved. After all, it’s not a party unless there is food. Try out a new recipe with in-season foods, or make your favorite comfort food dish.

- Go outside. The easiest way to celebrate the changing of the seasons is to go outside and experience them. Even if it’s a short walk (because not many people want to go for long strolls in the dead of winter), take a moment to step outside and experience nature and observe what it’s currently doing. If you are able, plan a day trip to somewhere special or new to explore.

- Decorate. Nothing gets me in the holiday (or Sabbat) spirit like decorating. As a child decorating for Christmas was the best because that was the only time we put up decorations. Now, as an adult, I use whatever I have handy to decorate for every Sabbat I can to make me feel more festive.

- Offerings. If you work with spirits of deities, you may wish to put together some sort of offering for them when you celebrate. This can be food, special rocks or flowers from outside, or something you’ve made yourself.

- Spells. Sabbats are prime times to do spells for me. The spells I cast are reflections of the coming season and what I want from them.

- Crafts. There are a ton of different little projects for Sabbats floating around on the internet. Get creative and make something! If you are on a budget, make something with what you have, or modify a craft to include what you have. I like to make something new each year for the Sabbats (it’s an easy way to get “decorations” too!)

- Divination. Nothing says celebration like a good old fashion look into the future. Choose any form of divination that you’d like and do a reading for yourself. 

- Journaling. Sometimes the easiest way to celebrate and connect is to get into your own head. Let the Earth inspire you. Stare out a window (or sit outside if you can) and just watch what happens around you. Let it inspire you to create. Journal about your own feelings, write a freestyle poem or sketch and paint what you see.

⛤ Creating a Ritual

Not all rituals have to be long and elaborate. Some of my favorite rituals are just sitting around in sweatpants with a hot cup of cocoa and my journal, reflecting on the season and my life. Ask yourself these questions to help piece together how a ritual would be best done for you.

- What am I celebrating? How can I celebrate this?
- Who am I worshiping?
- How much space do I have?
- How much time do I have?
- Why am I celebrating this Sabbat?
- What do I/can I buy for my celebrations?

The important thing for Sabbats isn’t how grand your ritual is, it’s all about gaining something from it, whether that be a nice warm fuzzy feeling or a great insight into your life. 

⛤ Reflection and Meditation

After each Sabbat day, I find it helpful if I reflect upon what I did that day and how my celebration went. This is when I do most of my journaling, but you don’t have to write anything. You can simply sit and rest and meditate on the day if you wish. Use this time to unwind.

- What did I do today? How do I feel about it?
- What ideas do I have for next year?
- What did this year’s Sabbat teach me?
- What was my favorite part of today’s celebration?
- What was my least favorite?

Happy Celebrating!

happy birthday, billie holiday // april 7, 1915 - july 17, 1959 // “there’s no damn business like show business - you have to smile to keep from throwing up”

“Behind me, Billie was on her last song. I picked up the refrain, humming a few bars. Her voice sounded different to me now. Beneath the layers of hurt, beneath the ragged laughter, I heard a willingness to endure. Endure- and make music that wasn’t there before.“ President Barack Obama

“Once, when [I was] playing at the Apollo, [Billie] was working a block away at the Harlem Opera House. Some of us went over between shows to catch her, and afterward, we went backstage. I did something then, and I still don’t know if it was the right thing to do - I asked her for her autograph.”  Ella Fitzgerald 

“With few exceptions, every major pop singer in the US during her generation has been touched in some way by her genius. It is Billie Holiday who was, and still remains, the greatest single musical influence on me. Lady Day is unquestionably the most important influence on American popular singing." Frank Sinatra

"If I hear a record once, I usually never listen to it again. I rarely listen to music - unless it’s Billie Holiday." Barbra Streisand

“She could express more emotion in one chorus than most actresses can in three acts.” Jeanne Moreau

"I have the ability to sing with emotion and feeling, but if you say I sound like Billie Holiday, that’s cool. Let’s look at who Billie was: she was this person, this singer, this beautiful diva who could move the audience with the slightest gesture of her hand." Erykah Badu

"Billie Holiday….she is so subtle, she can milk you with two notes. She can go no farther than from a to b, and she can make you feel like she told you the whole universe." Janis Joplin

"My great hero is Billie Holiday." Tim Curry

Hi everybody! I’ve gotten a couple of requests for this post, so I thought I’d finally put together my process for making a weekly spread!

Disclaimer: This is simply a system I find to be simple and doable for everyday life. By no means is this the only way or the best way to bullet journal! It’s just a way that I find to be realistic and aesthetically pleasing. 

Before we start: most of my layout is based on @studypunked’s and the moodboard I used was made for me by @sapphiccstudies! 

Supplies I used: Hardcover black Moleskine (grid paper); Green Mildliner; Pilot Hi-Tec-C 05 gel pen; Pony Brown stickers; Clear tape

Step 1: Decide on a color scheme! I always choose a monthly theme (for example, January’s was outer space and March’s was plants). Then, for each week I choose a subtheme! (ex. the first week of January was moon phases.) Then, I choose a Mildliner color that matches the theme. This week, I used a pink moodboard with green accents, so I used a green mildliner! 

Step 2: Weekly planning

I list the week number at the top of the page, and underneath that I put the dates within the week. (This has no purpose other than making me feel organized.) Then, below that I like to make a little monthly calendar (because it’s surprisingly often that I need to know what day of the week a certain date is!) Finally, below that I have a weekly schedule. This is where I write the dates of any tests, quizzes, projects, holidays, birthdays, etc! Generally, these are transferred from my monthly event calendar.

Step 3: Weekly tasks

This step makes my job pretty easy throughout the week! It’s as simple as listing the date and then making check boxes next to any tasks for the week. (This way, I don’t have to worry about much on days when I’m busy.)

Step 4: Finding images

Finally, the weekend rolls around and I’m ready to get into the fun stuff! Usually, here’s where I scour Google Images (I like to use the keywords ‘tumblr’ and ‘aesthetic’ along with my chosen color and theme) for pictures, but this week was easy for me thanks to a moodboard :)

Step 5: Drawings

After choosing my images (usually three, but it’s summer and I don’t have many tasks so I used six) I draw some stuff that goes with the theme in anywhere there will be empty space. Sometimes I also look for quotes and get a little prwctice with typography!

Step 6: Arrange and paste images


I play around with the layout of the images until I find the arrangement I like best, then use little loops of scotch tape to paste them down (usually straight but sometimes crooked if I’m feeling artsy)

Bonus Step: Add Stickers!

I only sometimes do this, but the gist of this is “put them wherever you want, but not too many because stickers are expensive.”

And Voilà! Here’s the finished product:

Satan and Me Halloween Activity

So I found out that there was a Halloween SaM project that was cancelled, but that some people still wanted to participate in something like that. And I think that would be really cool.

So I’m going to do a SaM piece for Halloween, and if any of y’all wanna do one too you can submit me your drawings on Halloween day and I’ll post them altogether with mine on the blog as one post. I love Halloween a lot and I like to see people get creative and see what they can come up with for this holiday. :~)

For anyone who wants to participate, feel free to do so! If not, that’s OK too. I’ll still work on a Halloween piece for the holiday regardless, but it’s cool whenever the Samily can participate in an activity together.
