things have changed so much but

After tomorrow, when Sherlock has been in theaters, then will I make a decision about how I feel about this show. I don't want any chance of any fuckery, any tricks.

Only when I’m 100% sure there is no possibility for more immediate Sherlock content will I make an educated decision about how to proceed in this Fandom. You guys have given me so much and I’m a better person because of you. I do not regret a single thing I’ve ever said on this site - I don’t regret a single meta I wrote. If the episode in theaters is the exact same as the episode we just watched, then I know I’ve inspired more queer people to find their voices and accept themselves than Mark Gatiss did.

If they can’t change the world, then I fucking will.

Yahoo!~ Important Announcement

Hello there my lovely followers! First off, I hope you guys are all having a wonderful day or night! So, I wanted to talk and ask for your opinions on some things that have been on my mind lately. As some of you know, the Haikyuu!! fandom has slowed down a bit so it’s getting kind of hard for me to reblog and manage content on this blog. I’ve had this blog for two years now & I just hit 8k not too long ago. This blog is known for it’s strict Iwaoi content and Seijou content and I know a lot of people follow for that reason but here’s the thing. It’s getting really hard to keep this blog moving smoothly. I’ve been thinking of shifting this blog into a multifandom (probably more Haikyuu!! and Yuri on Ice along with some other anime I follow). I’ve recently gotten into editing and I feel like this will allow me to tinker around with a variety of things more. If I do decide to make the change, I’m thinking of also changing my URL to something more simple (probs still Oikawa bc I love him). At the end of the day it’s my blog and I know I’m not restricted to reblogging solely certain content but I feel like I owe it to you guys and should at least ask what you think. I enjoy running this blog just the way it is, Iwaoi will always be my OPT but I’m also open to new things as well. Please let me know what you guys thing, mutuals especially, I’d really appreciate the feedback. Thank you, xx -katie <3

anonymous asked:

Do you see queerbaiting in BBC Sherlock? I've been following tjlc for a year but now looking at your blog I think I lost perspective on things. :/

Queerbating? No, not to my mind. I mean they DID make the major baddie campy queer. I could see the argument that this choice is problematic. 

Misogyny? Absolutely. Oh look! Ghost!Mary’s crawled out of the fridge!

Does the show have romantic Johnlock undertones? Imo it used to- very much so. That changed a) as the makers changed and b) as Mofftiss (and Ben and Martin) became increasingly not only aware of tjlc but also inundated constantly with demands to discuss (or react to) Johnlock porn or to make Johnlock canon.

YMMV.

anonymous asked:

Hello!~~~ I read the rules, and it seems OK to request a scenario with just Seven, if it makes anything easier for you :). Can I please request Seven walking in on MC naked, getting changed? How screwed up is this poor blushie tomato nerd? XD Thank you so much! I love your fics (I read them all lol) and have a lovely day! :) (p.s if you want you can include Saeran and Yoosung???)

Second part of this ask: 

Hello again!~~~ I was the one who requested the Seven walking in on MC thing. If you can, can it be NSFW??? Thank you!

Hello anon, I don’t know how to make it NSFW. So I only implied a bit NSFW here. And I think it strayed a bit from your request, hope you’re still okay with it. 

Enjoy!

How was LARPing?

It was amazing <3 I’ve had the most wonderful weekend and I miss everyone already.

NPCing can be so intense because you’re playing so many different characters in a very short time. But you can also go all out because you don’t have to play things as safe as a PC would. If you die you probably made the scene more awesome and you just go back to the NPC cot to change into your new character :D And I love that so much.

My favourite roles of the weekend were a girl possessed by a demon that players had to exorcise (most intense moment of the weekend for me), the spirit of a dead girl coming to haunt the man who accidentally killed her, and Digi, a Sprite of Technology.

I may post some pictures if there are some of me alone.

TEEN WOLF_real end spoiler.😉

Guys, let’s be honest. The result is that a row over non-existent relations between the characters, and most importantly resentment and hostility with which some actors disliked the role of ships too long. END OF THE SEASON. The most important thing to not only our favorite characters were happy as well as actors and we are with you. Many viewers have to get up to drink a glass of water and go to the people for the benefit of society and do something good which gave us our favorite characters. Then came the day when the heroes of our dreams have come true in us. Be a hero. Because we can, even without supernatural abilities but we can do much more, we are changing the lives of everyone we meet on the way. So let’s think, breathe and go for adventure. After all, this worthy

Please pass it on!!! Spread it like wildfire!!

What I said:
BBC Sherlock has changed my life in so many ways. And I owe it to an “acronym”, a “ secret society ”, TJLC. I believe in one’s life only a few times do things come around as a person- Heart, Body, Mind, Soul.
As a child it was Harry Potter, as an adult it has been Sherlock. It isn’t just a story, coming from a storyteller- which these two men claim to know so much about.
Queer baiting the way this seems to have gone has not just hurt me and made me and others angry, we feel lied to and violated. The rug was pulled, and I among others have felt we fell on our faces, in front of everyone. Now we are a laughing stock.
Tell the true story gentlemen, tell the story the way “It should be done”.

anonymous asked:

How do you think Arianne's storyline would have gone if Quentyn was a girl? I've always thought that would have been a more interesting dynamic and her trying to work out why her sister is favoured etc. plus there is so much maleness in Westeros in general it would have been nice to see a completely different type of dynastic conflict going on that didn't partly consist of some of the people involved believing part of the problem was their gender.

I don’t think you can have Arianne’s storyline without those gender dynamics, is the thing. Plus my guess would be that Doran would have betrothed his younger daughter to Viserys, and then Trys would have to somehow go on the life-changing field-trip to seduce Dany. Good luck, buddy!

I just got my first tank, it's a 20 gallon. What stocking would you recommend for a super beginner like me? I know it will be a while before I can get fish but I want to plan ahead!

Mod @thebrackishtank

First thing I’d suggest doing is figuring out whether you have soft or hard water. Certain fish do better in one rather than the other (and some are fine in either as long as you avoid extremes) and really, it’s so much easier to care for fish that like water straight from the tap. There are ways to change water chemistry, but lets focus on easy options.

If you’ve got high hardness, high pH (hard, alkaline water), then livebearers are the way to go! Swordtails and Mollies are too big, but Platies, Guppies, and Endler’s are all pretty small and easy to care for. Platies are, incidentally, one of my favorite beginner fish.

If you have low hardness, low pH (soft, acidic water), then South American Tetras and Gouramis are good bets. Just about any species of schooling tetra is fine here, though I’d avoid Serpaes as they are fin biters. Honey Gouramis are hit or miss in terms of health (and I’d avoid Dwarf Gouramis) but the Thick Lipped Gourami is a very good choice.

Fish like Zebra Danios, Corydoras, Pristella Tetras, White Cloud Minnows, Bettas (the non-super fancy ones), Tiger Barbs, and Kuhli Loaches are fine with moderately hard to moderately soft water.

For best effect, I’d go with a small group of one species bottom-dwelling fish and a small group of one species of mid-swimming fish… something like 6 Cory Cats and 5 Platies/6 Pristella Tetras/6 Zebra Danios/8 White Clouds would be a very easy and entertaining tank. If you have a specific idea in mind, let us know and we can help.

My friend is starting a new relationship and I feel so... broken? I don't even know why, it's not like I even have feelings for her. I just- I'm afraid of things changing i guess... I just feel empty and dumb and pathetic and I don't understand why this is effecting me so much... its not even a big deal so why am I getting so emotionally worked up over it?

(Letting my friend take over this one for me)

B: Sooo I recently went through this same thing when my best friend recently got in to a relationship. I’ve had my fair share of freak outs about it and honestly I was freaking out over nothing. Obviously things have changed, which is the scary part right? But we still hang out on a regular basis. The best thing to do if you are really freaking out about this, which I relate to, is to talk them about how you’re feeling. Also, it’s made me realize how great spending time with her is and we actually do more things other than watching movies at my house because we know we gotta make it count. Plus you’ll get closer with other people when you start hanging out with other people while they’re busy. Overall, I think this will be beneficial for your friendship and it’s great seeing your friend so happy, even if it’s not always with you (and this is coming from a very jealous person).

star wars, natch

Oh my god well if you consider the prequels i have WAY more than five things I’d change lmaooooo so uh, let’s keep this to things I’d change about the OT and TFA/R1:

-Every deleted scene with Leia from TFA makes it into the final cut
-More emotional weight and heft to Alderaan’s destruction; like the Imperials just destroyed an entire planet and obviously Leia is Leia about it but I’d still love to see tears from her about it at least once. 
-More Mon Mothma and Bail Organa in Rogue One
-Honestly, as much as I love that moment between Rey and Leia at the end of TFA, I think that moment should have belonged to Leia and Chewie. They’re the ones who cared about Han the most and who were the most affected by what happened on Starkiller and although I never caught it the first few times because I was so moe about Leia and Rey, it should have been Chewie getting that hug. 
-Wedge shows up five times more in every movie.

harsh advice for the signs based on people i know
  • Aries: Your optimism is a gift to those around you and it inspires others to have hope, but you have to consider the not-so-positive outcomes of each situation you find yourself in, Aries.
  • Taurus: You believe that changes and surprises are always a bad thing and you always have your guard up, but you need to learn to give things a chance to be great before you judge it as a bad thing, Taurus.
  • Gemini: You have the power to be everything you dream of, but you need to go after your dreams instead of coming up with reasons why you can't or why you aren't good enough for them, Gemini.
  • Cancer: You spend so much time worrying about other people's well-being and happiness that you forget to take care of yourself, it's okay to put yourself first sometimes, Cancer.
  • Leo: You say it matters that others have a chance to shine but if you really cared about other people like you say you do, you'd make some small sacrifices with their happiness as your top priority, so make sure your actions reflect your words, Leo.
  • Virgo: You need to give yourself more credit than you think you deserve because you work really hard, but you have to accept that you're good enough for yourself no matter the results, Virgo.
  • Libra: You can be really quick to form a bad opinion of someone if you don't like their behaviors which can be a good thing, but you forget that other people might have good intentions but miscommunicate them, so try to be more forgiving, Libra.
  • Scorpio: You keep people in your life that don't add any value to it because you're afraid of being alone, but you need to understand that it's okay to drop negative people because it's better to be alone and happy than to be with people who hurt you, Scorpio.
  • Sagittarius: You get so lost in your dream world that's in your head that you forget to appreciate what you have in life especially the little things because life isn't meant to have explosively happy moments, Sagittarius.
  • Capricorn: You need to show appreciation towards the people that care about you instead of ignoring them for someone who doesn't, people are getting tired of being taken for granted, Capricorn.
  • Aquarius: You're so nice to the people that disrespect you that they think it's okay to walk all over you, and some things are worth getting mad about, so allow yourself to be angry, Aquarius.
  • Pisces: You're so good at acting like you're always the victim and like you're an accepting person, but you need to step back into reality because people can see through your fake bullshit, Pisces.
Medicine in the (Post-Apocalyptic) Wasteland: 1 / ?

Hey everyone. I get so many asks about post-apocalyptic scenarios that it’s I’m going to build you a series of posts, dealing specifically with medicine after the collapse of civilization.

Originally posted by jupiter2

Yes, this borders on sci-fi. Yes, a lot of things will be very different in your story, depending on the hows and the whys and the social structure that exists after the apocalypse. Things will also be incredibly different based on when your story is set, because things will likely collapse in a particular order. So your story is going to change a lot depending precisely when you’re writing about, in relation to The Catastrophe (of whatever type).

The difference between this and sci-fi asks is that there is very much an area of medicine devoted to this type of care. It’s called Austere Medicine, AKA Wilderness Medicine. It’s studied. There are resources. There are people who work in villages that may not have had an apocalypse, but have limited funds, access to power, access to diagnostics, access to drugs, and they do it every day of their lives. This is sci-fi with modern parallels. This is interesting.

For the purposes of this article, we’re assuming two major problems: no / extremely limited electricity, and no / extremely limited gasoline.

That first one throws out most of modern medicines. Hospitals. Surgeries. MRIs, CT scans, even the humble X-ray goes by the wayside. Providers have to go back to doing medicine with their hands and with their ears.

Oh, and a lot of people are going to die.

Enter Dani Disaster.

She’s smart, but moreover she’s resourceful, and she can think outside the box that modern medicine has tried to put her in. Maybe she was a doctor, or a nurse, or a paramedic. Now she’s a healer, a Jane-of-all-trades of medicine. She barters for what will help people in the short term, and shakes her head and sighs when she realizes she can’t help a lot of the people she used to be able to.

One thing I want to mention is that Dani will definitely want to keep someone around, preferably an intimidating, armed someone, to protect her. Because people will want things from Dani; everything from begging her to fix their dying-of-something-she-can’t-fix husband, to demanding she be personal medic to the Warlord King (or whatever brute is rising to power in your world).

The First 6 Months

Originally posted by mysillyfreedomdreams

Most people don’t have more than a month’s worth of their medication on hand. Even most pharmacies would run out of the most popular life-saving medications inside of a month or two, assuming they aren’t simply raided by bandits. And in a world without gasoline, the odds of restock are very, very low.

That means no blood pressure medications, no blood thinners, in an ever-increasingly-stressful world. That means no insulin for diabetics, no immunosuppressants for those with autoimmune diseases, no antiepileptics for those with seizure disorders, no antibiotics for septic patients. No pressors to give and no pumps to hang them on. Even IV fluids, literal salt water, will run short.

I will be straight up with you all, keyboard-mashers: a lot of people will die in the first 6 months of an apocalypse, and I’m not even talking from the fighting. I’m not even talking about starvation. I’m just talking about chronic illness. Heart attacks. Diabetes. Blood clots. Strokes. I’m talking about the elderly, who can barely make it a block to the store. I’m talking about serious respiratory patients who need steroids and who have serious trouble walking distances. Cancer patients won’t get chemo, or radiation, or maybe even food. Patients with HIV will run out of antivirals, and then run out of T cells, and die from the common cold.

There are going to be a lot of deaths in the first 6 months after the apocalypse, friends, and it will be ugly as hell. Remember that for most of human history, the lifespan was about 40 years. In a world without organized medicine and the pharmaceutical processes to make medicine, there’s precious little that can be done to expand the lifespan.

Congratulations: You’re the Surgeon. And the Infectious Disease doc. And the Midwife. And the Wound Care Specialist. And the Anesthesiologist. And the…

Look, healthcare is a wide field, and no one person is going to be good at everything. No one person is actually interested in everything, either. There is no one type of healthcare provider who can do everything, although Emergency Medicine docs probably come the closest; and before The Thing That Happened, Dani may have been an ICU nurse, tweaking ventilators, or a paramedic who’d never thrown a stitch before, much less amputated a badly gangrenous leg.

What I’m saying here is, there’s a learning curve for the actual technical things she’ll need to do, in addition to re-learning how to do everything with nothing. And some of it might be way, way outside her wheelhouse, especially at first.


Six Months to Five Years: The Rise of Dani Disaster

Originally posted by asmothdeus

If Dani is lucky, and she gets to the raiding of pharmacies early on, she’ll stock up. On anything she can get, of course, but especially on three things: antibiotics, analgesics and sedatives. Why? Because they’re what will save lives and be useful as hell for trading. Here’s why:

Antibiotics: infection will probably be the single group of preventable deaths that are worth looking at, from a supply-vs-life-years-saved perspective. A single course of antibiotics will save someone’s life, but a diabetic will need insulin, every day, for decades. Also remember that with system breakdown comes water supply breakdown, which means a return of diseases like typhoid and cholera and diptheria and polio.

Antibiotics are an art all of their own, but frankly, they’re boring. Broad-spectrum antibiotics will be most useful; including amoxicillin/Augmentin, Cefaclor, Keflex, Levaquin, erythromycin or clarithromycin or azithromycin, Cipro, or doxycycline. 

Oral antibiotics are going to have benefits over IV antibiotics, for a number of reasons, mostly portability and ease of administration; IV-only drugs haven’t been listed here. Some meds may come in a form that can be given IM; this may be helpful for conditions that severely upset the GI tract (and thus prevent people from absorbing them, because the pill will either go up or down, depending.)

The thing you have to realize is that in austere medicine, common things happen commonly. No one cares if your patient has a pulmonary embolism, or a cool dysrhythmia, because with complex conditions, one of two things are going to happen: They are going to get better, or they are going to die. Heart attacks, a major focus of modern medicine, are essentially untreatable without the risk of dying.

Instead, the most important things Dani will be treating are things that, in the developed world, should be handled in urgent care clinics: gastroenteritis (the shits) and broken bones and infected wounds and yeast infections. A friend of mine went to Haiti after the quake, and within 24 hours she could diagnose a yeast infection by the way a woman was walking.

Originally posted by mattsgifs

Diflucan. She will need LOTS OF DIFLUCAN.

(It’s worth noting that Haiti was very hot and very humid, which is where fungi like to grow; other areas may see other climates, and thus less yeast infections.)

Analgesics: If she’s smart, Dani will take anything she can beg, borrow, or steal. Common, over-the-counter meds like Advil/ibuprofen and Tylenol/acetaminophen/paracetamol, and pill opiates like Vicodin and Percocet and Morphine and Dilaudid. All of these have their place, but mostly this is a “whatever I can get” sort of a thing.

If Dani is really smart, she will go out of her way to find every bottle of ketamine in whatever hospital she raids. We’ve talked about ketamine before, but it’s worth mentioning again, in that it can be used to sedate the crazy, ease pain, or put someone under for short surgical procedures like an appendectomy or amputation. (It’s also a single agent; it controls pain and causes sedation. It doesn’t act as a paralytic, but hopefully she won’t need one).

Lidocaine in a Big Fucking Bottle is optional but beneficial for topical procedures, wound care, suturing, etc.

However, all of these things will eventually run out, no matter how judicious she is about using them. And that’s when we get to….

Five Years Plus: Back to Herbalism It Is

Originally posted by indefenseofplants

There are a lot of allopaths–those who practice Western medicine–that believe herbalism is complete and utter horseshit. I am not one of those people. A lot of medications have their origins in natural remedies and plants, and herbalism is how we treated, well, everything, for quite some time.

The poppy plant begat opium, which begat laudanum, heroin, morphine, and fentanyl. The foxglove plant (digitalis) begat, Digoxin, whose actual name is digitalis. Curare is one of the original paralytics used for surgery. The list goes on and on.

Now, an allopathic education doesn’t typically lead to an in-depth knowledge of medicinal herbs. But fortunately, there are these lovely things called books, and there are, in fact, some really good ones on this topic.

Originally posted by amnhnyc

My personal medical-herbalism reference is James A Duke’s The Green Pharmacy (Amazon link, but available everywhere; not an affiliate link). The author ran the medicinal herb research at the US Dept of Agriculture for a good long while, and the best part about his book is that it is organized by disease (so you don’t have to read about 5,000 plants to find one that treats allergies), and he grades his evidence base for each recommendation. However, there are also field guides to medicinal plants.

Once the allopathic meds run out, Dani Disaster is going to become, basically, a witch doctor, without the witchy aspects. (Or with, depending on her faith and whether or not she practices the craft; no one is judging here.)

She’s going to have a garden of medicinal herbs, and she’s going to learn to prepare poultices and teas and tinctures and creams. Basically, she’s going to bring an allopathic ideology back to herbalism, preferably with some form of evidence base. Willow bark tea is going to be a Big Deal™, because willow bark tea contains an active ingredient very similar to aspirin.

Originally posted by nutnuhmellaarts

But she’s also going to have to be, in part, a home chemist. If she does enough research she can learn how to make her own ethyl alcohol, aka ethanol, aka boozeahol, but this can be used as a disinfectant and antiseptic. (Hell, in a pinch regular ol’ wine can be used to clean out wounds, apparently.) 

She can also learn to make her own bleach, her own IV fluids (0.9% Normal Saline, anyways), her own oral rehydration solution (aka Pedialyte / Gatorade), and perhaps even her own ether, which is a crap anesthetic but better than nothing.

That’s It…. For Now

This is just a small snippet into the world of austere medicine. (Be careful with Google searches on this topic; Doomsday Preppers are very, very scary and their websites can be… uhhh….. ill-informed.) There’s still plenty more to talk about, so stay tuned for more posts! (I’m especially drooling over the idea of writing a post on the ethics of medicine in the austere environment–stay tuned!!)

I hope this was useful, but remember also this poem by the greats of old:

When the world ends, now
is the time to be sure I
read the disclaimer.
