“Don’t be stupid,” I gasp. “I—”

“I can feel it when you do.” He holds my jaw with his other hand in place, looking only at him.❤

Fluffy headcanon time: One time Dipper and Mabel are just chilling in their room, Dipper reading on his bed and Mabel doing some scrapbooking on the floor. At some point, Stan calls Mabel downstairs for something, and as she hurriedly gets up and runs out the room, she knocks the scrapbook to a different page without realising. Dipper meanwhile puts his book down and hops off the bed, intending to go grab another can of Pitt or some such thing, when he notices something on the scrapbook out of the corner of his eye. Turning to look at it, he sees the words “Dipper Appreciation Section” written across two pages. He kneels down to take a closer look, and what follows is a series of pages that Mabel has filled with pictures of her brother and has written down all the things she loves about him. Dipper reads the whole thing through, and by the end he’s on the verge of tears. Mabel runs back into the room, and she spots what Dipper is looking at. She briefly freezes, afraid that her brother is going to be super embarrassed by it, but when Dipper turns around she just sees his eyes full of tears. His face goes red, and he bats away the tears, awkwardly apologizing. Mabel smiles as wide as she can and rushes over to Dipper, throwing her arms around him and squeezing him in a hug. “Don’t apologize bro-bro”, she says, “I’m glad you liked it”.


@choc-chip-pancakes Figured I’d tag you in this because I think you were looking for happy headcanons the other day? I might be remembering wrong, but either way, enjoy XD

You’re My Hero. A Daddy!Dan Howell One Shot.

Dan was only twenty when his girlfriend told him he was gonna be a dad. At first he was completely terrified but when baby Howell was born he couldn’t have been happier. He never knew it was possible to love someone so much, but when he looked at his baby girl’s face he felt his heart explode with love. Each day he falls more in love with the little girl he helped create. She had has his curly brown hair, his chocolate eyes, she even had his dimples, but she was the complete opposite of his personality. From a young age Jennifer was bursting with life, always had a smile on her face. She was the light of his life.

When Jennifer was three years old her mom, Christy broke things off with Dan. She claimed she wanted a future that didn’t involve youtube paying their bills. She agreed to a joint custody, and wished him well with his life. Dan got to see his daughter for two weeks out of each month, Christmas eve, the day before her birthday, the day after his birthday, and father’s day. Today was father’s day and Dan was waiting for Christy to drop of Jenny for the night, trying to stay busy by editing a video.

It had been nearly two months since he last saw his daughter. She spent the night with him the day before he left to America for his live show tour. He came so close to canceling at the sight of crying for him as he went to board his plane. It broke his heart. Twice he’s almost flown home after she called him in tears because she missed him. It took a lot of convincing before his ex agreed to fly out so he can spend father’s day with her.

He was nearly done with editing when a knock at the hotel door had him jumping off the bed and lunging for the door. “Daddy!!” As soon as he opened the door Jenny had her little arms wrapped around Dan’s legs. “Hey princess,” Dan leaned down and picked her up. She wrapped her arms around his neck and kissed his cheek. “I missed you daddy.” Dan smiled at her while taking her bag from her mom. “I missed you too princess, so so much.” He looked at his ex with a smile. “Thank you Christy, this means a lot to me.” She nodded and kissed Jenny on the cheek. “I’m staying two floors down if you need anything. Have fun Dan and happy father’s day.”

After Dan had put Jenny’s stuff away and called Phil, who was at the pool, they went to the dinner across the street. “Daddy can I have milk shake?” She looked up at him with a pleading look, knowing it was Dan’s weakness. “Of course princess. Chocolate?” She nodded happily and told Dan what she wanted to eat. “So Dan what do you and Jenny have planned for the day?” Phil smiled at his bestfriend and his daughter, who were drawing on the kids menu with the crayons that the waitress gave her. “I think we might just stay in the room and watch some movies. Would you like to join us?” Phil happily nodded and joined in on their coloring.

Once their food was finished they went to a store to pick up a few snacks. “Daddy can you get me some cheetos?” Dan nodded and turned to look for the chips, missing his daughter and best friend sneak away from his side. They quickly dashed down another aisle and hid from his sight. When he went looking for them they made a bee line for the object that Jenny wanted to buy. Phil went to pay for it while Jenny ran over to her dad and wrapped her arms around his legs. “Where did you and uncle Phil go to?” Jenny lied and told him she and Phil were looking for candy.

Dan paid for everything and the all headed back to the hotel. Phil and Jenny picked a movie, more than likely they picked A Bug’s Life, while Dan set up the snacks. He laid on his bed and patted the spot next to him for his daughter to lay. She jumped on the bed and crawled to Dan, she sat on his lap and laid back on him. Placing her hand behind her head she looked up him and smiled. “Comfortable?” Dan smiled down at her, laughing when she nodded her head. Phil laid on the other side of the bed and pressed play after shutting off the lights.

Four movies later all the snacks were gone, Phil was falling asleep, and Jenny was fighting to keep her eyes open. “Time for bed princess.” She was so tired she just nodded her head climbed off of Dan to get her pajamas. Dan helped her change before changing into his own pjs. When he came back from the bathroom Jenny was under the blankets falling asleep. Dan turned off the movie and woke Phil so he can change for bed, then he climbed in next to Jenny. “Goodnight princess.” She opened her eyes and sat up. “I almost forgot daddy.” She climbed out of bed and walked to her suitcase. She pulled out a gift bag and walked over to Dan, handing it to him “Happy father’s day daddy.“Dan sat up and pulled out its contents, one by one.

First thing was a hand made picture frame, it was made of popsicle sticks and cardboard. Written on the frame was "Me and Daddy”, and it had a picture of Dan with cake all over his face kissing Jenny on the cheek. It was taken last year for his birthday, she smashed a piece of cake onto his face after singing happy birthday to him. Second was a small stuffed llama that had a heart on it’s side. Third was a jar filled with small paper stars and a note stuck to it. He opened the note and read it out loud.

“In this jar is 365 stars. Each star has a reason why I love my daddy. Pick one a day and read it. Love Baby Howell Is Not On Fire.” He smiled at her. “Go ahead daddy, pick a star.” He nodded and opened the jar, reaching in he pulled out one of the stars and opened it. After a second he was able to read the words. “No matter what you are always there, when I hurt my knee, when I was scared of the monster under the bed, and when I needed cuddles cause I was sick. No one is better than my daddy, you’re my hero. I love you daddy, from here to Pluto. (which is a planet)” Dan chuckled at the end before placing the star back in the jar and closing it. He leaned over to his daughter and lifted her on to his lap. “You’re my hero princess and I’ll always be there no matter what. You can count on that. I love you.” He gave her a kiss and hugged her close. The gifts forgotten as she clung to him. “I love you too daddy.

Effy Stonem Back to School Guide

This is mainly based on Effy in school in season 3 and season 4. All pictures are not mine, however all of the edits are so if you use any please give credit! Hope you enjoy, if you have anymore questions my ask is always open :)

Clothes 


Here is a list of all outfits Effy wore to school that I recreated. But, Effy basically wears the same type of clothes no matter where she goes. So if you want more inspiration you can find more outfits on my outfit recreation page which can be found here.

Also here are three outfits for school that I created inspired by Effy’s style: 

What would Effy wear to gym class?
This is probably the time where she would wear leggings. Go for black leggings, a graphic muscle tee or tshirt, and converse. 

How can I wear Effy type clothes if I have a strict dress code?
Modify the outfits to your dress code! You can replace fishnets and sheer tights with darker matte tights, leggings, leather/disco pants, or jeans. Look for longer dresses and skirts. You can also cover your shoulders with a flannel, leather jacket, denim jacket, and cardigan.

How can I make my school uniform more Effy?
Focus on jewelry and shoes! For shoes stick with combat boots and converse. Wear lots of jewelry such as gold and silver long necklaces and black plastic bracelets, chunky bracelets, and studded bracelets. Occasionally Effy wears hats like a gray knit beanie and black fedora, so you can also wear those!

School Supplies

Bags
We only see Effy wear two types of bags; a black and white tote and a leather purse. Now in the world of Skins, that size of a bag might work, but I prefer larger backpacks that will fit all of my supplies. Here are some Effy inspired backpacks! Also here you will find Effy school bag essentials.

Supplies:
 Effy strikes me as someone who doesn’t bring a lot of supplies. Just very light weight items that are necessary for school. Most of her supplies have black and white geo print on them. Here are some more inspired items.

Locker:
In the show we only get these short looks at Effy’s locker. The only stuff she has in there are a few pictures and her books. Out of experience this is the best way to go. The more stuff you have in there (like a locker shelf, mirror, magnets, containers, etc) the harder it will be to clear out at the end of the year. So like Effy keep it simple!

Makeup

Season 3:
Effy’s makeup in season three was more intense (although not as intense as her party looks) and more put together. Usually she would use a black pencil liner to line the top and bottom of her eye, put on a good amount of mascara, and top that of with a little gray eyeshadow. For the days she’s feeling more girly (picture on right) add some lip gloss and some blush. 

Season 4:
In season 4 Effy became more vulnerable and it shows in her makeup. Her dark makeup that she used as a shield became lighter. For me, I think this a better everyday makeup look since its easier and doesn’t take as much time. She still uses a black pencil liner but only a little on her top lid and on top of that the only thing she wears is mascara. 

Hairstyles

These are the main hairstyles we see Effy wear at school. On the left she keeps her hair down and naturally wavy but she takes the front hair pieces and pins it back in a slight poof. In the middle she keeps her hair down with it parted to the side and straightened. Occasionally she’ll wear this style with a headband. On the right Effy’s wearing her hair down and parted to the side, it is also in its natural curl, but for those with straight hair like me it’s probably a good idea to invest in a good curling wand or braid your hair the night before.

Gym hairstyles
Although we never see Effy in gym, I would assume she would wear her hair like this. The middle picture shows her hair in two messy fishtail braids, if you don’t know how to do this style, there are a ton of great tutorials you can find on youtube. The other two pictures show Effy with a ponytail. It’s almost the same style as the left picture above, but this time instead of her hair down it’s up. Also she keeps a few strands of hair out. 

Other

Would Effy join school clubs or sports?
Effy isn’t the type to really join anything. But please don’t let that stop you from trying new things and doing what you like. Colleges/universities love to see students participating in extra curricular activities. So please please please don’t not join clubs or sports just because Effy wouldn’t. 

How can I act like Effy at school?
Walk the halls with confidence. Observe and know what’s going on. And don’t give away too much about yourself. Ultimately when you’re a teenager it’s the time to figure out who you are. So getting inspiration from someone like Effy isn’t always a bad thing, just don’t try to be an exact copy of her and don’t adopt her bad traits.Take her confidence and brains!

Would Effy get good grades? Would she raise her hand? 
Effy is smart. We know that because she was in a private school that would expell her if she didn’t meet grade expectations. The reason she didn’t get good grades in season 4 was because she was really struggling with her mental illness. Short answer, yes she would if she is mentally well. Effy is quiet and observant she’s not really the type to raise her hand unless she needed to leave the room. But hey, if you know the answer to a question and you’re not afraid to raise your hand go for it! 

What would Effy eat for lunch?
I think she would eat something really simple. In Naomi’s episode in season 3 we see Effy eating some sort of a sandwich. Besides a sandwich she would probably also have a bag of chips and for some reason I’m thinking an apple haha. Go for what you like to eat just keep it simple!

What books would Effy read for school?
We see Effy reading “Georges Braque: A life” by Alex Danchev and “The Demon Headmaster” by Gillian Cross (but that’s a children’s book). In school the skins kids were reading “Hamlet” by Shakespeare. Also Effy in season 2 read greek myths to Tony, you might be able to get away with reading that. 

Again if you need help with anything specific or feel as if there is a topic I didn’t cover feel free to leave me a message. Soon I will have more back to school advice from my personal experience on my own blog so keep an eye out for that :)x

There’s been some awesome meta about femslash floating around, and it’s made me think more about my own engagement with it, and how much more important it’s been to me than I’ve perhaps realised. I’ve read a lot about how femslash can help young fans come to terms with their queerness, but the truth is, it isn’t just them.

I was late, very late, coming to an acceptance of my own sexuality. Too much internalised homophobia, I guess. I’m still in the process of chipping away at it. But when I had my first inkling that I might be interested in other women, the first thing I did was read femslash.

I was a fanfic reader already - never m/m, always het. I just couldn’t get interested if there wasn’t a woman involved. In retrospect, that might have been my first clue. And so exploring my attraction to women through fan fiction felt natural. It felt safe. I could have read lesbian erotica of course, but there was a comfort in reading this stuff between characters I already knew, characters who’d all been living seemingly straight lives, just like me.

Look, these stories seemed to be saying, it worked out OK for them. It can work out fine for you too. Reading about lesbian relationships between characters I could see on my TV every week normalised them for me, in a way nothing else quite could. It made the desire I’d been so slow to acknowledge seem ordinary.

And, maybe even more importantly, it introduced me to a whole community of people just like me - not only queer women, but geeks, passionate about and playful with the same things I’d always cared about. Intellectually I knew those people existed. I knew what I felt wasn’t wrong and that I wasn’t alone. But femslash helped me to feel as well as know, and for that I’ll always be grateful.

Stiles loves cooking, okay? He does. His mom used to cook all the time. She was just as restless as he was and she’d just bring him into the kitchen with her and cook all day long for fun. (So much of the food would have gone to waste, but luckily her friend Talia had many children who were always hungry. Talia herself liked to come over for coffee and gossip and Claudia’s famous chocolate and peanut butter chip cookies. Talia made sure to help out with the cost by bringing by fresh food from the farmers market every couple days too, because she felt bad about the Stilinskis giving them so much food) And after Claudia died, Stiles stopped cooking for a while. It hurt too much to remember.

But then his dad’s doctor said a lot of things about blood pressure and heart attacks and diet changes and this was something he could do. This was something he could help with. So he started cooking again and experimented with all kinds of recipes. But a lot of it goes to waste because it doesn’t always turn out right and he figures out what fits well together and what doesn’t. And things get better. He has an outlet for his nervous energy and he gives some of the meals to Scott’s mom because she needs to eat too, okay and Scott is a terrible cool and Stiles wants to help her out too.

And then Scott gets bit and he stops cooking again because he’s suddenly running around trying to stop people from dying. But then things calm down a little and he can breathe again. Except now there’s a little too much air (too much space, nothing to do, and he can’t stop shaking) so he starts cooking without even thinking about it. And okay, he’s a little out of practice and he’s home alone and he accidentally burns the food. (It’s mac n cheese, his go to comfort food) and suddenly Derek is there and holding the fire extinguisher that his dad keeps under the sink. But Stiles jumps in front of the food and takes the fire extinguisher and reassures him that it’s all good. After Derek finally decides that there’s no more danger, he calms down, and they eat the mac n cheese together. (Stiles is a little surprised, but says nothing. He really feels a little safer with Derek here because his dad is working all night) And Stiles pulls out the cookies, his mom’s recipe because it’s his favorite, and gives some to Derek with a joke about being a knight in shining leather. And Derek knows these cookies, okay? He remembers them and a woman with a big smile and warm eyes. But he doesn’t say anything because he doesn’t want to upset Stiles with memories.

And then it’s like a floodgate is opened, Stiles can’t stop cooking. But now he figures that he might as well put the food to good use instead of throwing it away, and he gives it to the pack instead. (Because no one is dead and I love thinking about a big happy whole pack) and then the wolves just start coming for dinner every night, and he’s happy to cook for them and to teach them how to cook and they all chip in and bring over groceries because they know how much they all eat okay? And he learns all of Derek’s foods and makes them whenever he sees Derek getting sad because he thinks Derek has been sad for long enough.

SnK 67 Thoughts

I chose the Titan that was most suited for battle.
–Rod Reiss, 65

You’ve never been in a fight in your life, have you?

That’s what I’d like to say, anyway. Without cheap opening jokes the whole reviewing system would fall apart, and everyone’s already done the chicken thing. Though with his head stuck in the ground, I could contribute by making ostrich jokes, but ostriches are really more likely to kick you.

Rod’s such a delight. The only thing that makes his presence tolerable is how good he is at manipulating people’s perceptions to his advantage.

He says he chose the Titan most suited for battle just when the possibility of a battle is imminent–the one between Eren and Historia. Survival of the fittest. Last Titan standing wins.

Rod’s a vassal of the Progenitor Titan, though. There’s no reason for his viewpoint to be that limited.

Battle’s a dramatic word for a prize fight, but in the grander scheme of the old guard versus the liberation of their regime… Hey, weapons of mass destruction are fantastic battle tools!

@gjfalcon asked:

Hey! I know this is a bit of a broad question, but what do you imagine mining in places such as Casterly Rock is like in Westeros?

Hi there! Mining in Casterly Rock is probably one of the worst jobs in Westeros. People in the Middle Ages in England sent people to work down in mines as a form of punishment, which is what the Lannisters do to people in the Westerlands: “My lord father would call that insolence, and send you to the mines for impertinence.” And the Ironborn tend to use thralls / captives in their iron mines. 

The Lannisters and other western lords might also just round up members of the local population and put them to work in the mines, as people in medieval England did. Think of how the westermen behaved toward the local villagers around Harrenhal, taking them from their homes and making them servants in Harrenhal. That was obviously part of Tywin’s war strategy, but I think it’s worth considering how it might be applied at home in the west.

I’m not a historian, so perhaps one of the medievalists might be able to say more, but if you watch this video on medieval mining, it explains that miners used small picks to chip away at the rock, little by little. Fire-setting was also used. Medieval mines were very dark, cramped, and dangerous. Temperatures inside mines were extreme, either much hotter or much colder than aboveground. Cave-ins were a significant problem. Casterly Rock probably has the added problem of occasional flooding down in the tunnels. Being sent to work in a medieval mine was a death sentence. Prisoners didn’t live very long down in the mines. If you watch the video, medieval mine owners felt that “The cost in lives didn’t matter. Workers’ lives were cheap” which is consistent with the complete disregard the Lannisters have for the lives of smallfolk. 

Basically the Lannisters are killing people everyday in their basement, if mining in Casterly Rock is anything like what it was in medieval England. 

And if you want to think about mining in Essos, @madeinmyr has a great essay theorizing that mining in Old Valyria served their blood magic rituals:

The Dragon Lords did the Carthaginians one better by sending the populations of whole countries into the furnace-like mines around the fourteen flames. The official mission was to mine for gold, but there’s good reason to suspect this gold was strictly secondary and the real reason was to slowly cook the slaves to death as a colossal and continuous sacrifice. 

Mining in ASOIAF is horrifying. If you’d like to read more, I have tags for #mining and for #casterly rock, of which I am especially fond

He had been eating a hot dog, mask up just above his nose. Peter had been training with Romanoff almost all day today and he needed a break. His senses had lightly vibrated, letting him know Wanda was near, but he didn’t expect the tongue on his cheek. He made a surprised noise and looked at her. “And why did you do that? Are you really that hungry? I’ve got some chocolate chip cookies in my bag. Homemade.”


Wanda chuckled, taking a seat beside him. “I was just wondering what a spider tasted like. Apparently ‘hairy’.” She should really learn to stop sassing Peter but it was just too much fun. Steve had been helping her with drills out in the yard, making her levitate objects until her body felt like over-cooked noodles. Taking a large sip of her water she froze as Bucky entered the gym to spar with Natasha. “I think I might take you up on those cookies.” Frowning at the sparring soviets Wanda turned away, focusing her gaze on Peter. “I put the photos from the carnival in my room. The one of us biting the burger pillow is beside my bed.”
