this could be a fail

Let's get real: best way to date Irish men?

It’s tricky but I’ll help as best I can!
If you’re standing close enough to them you might be able to glimpse their neck. This is where their expiry dates are printed so if you get in a little closer you should be able to see their date of manufacture, too.
Failing this, you could bring him on a day out to a museum and compare him to the contents of the archeology section.

As she walked into the room her eyes avoided his as best they could, but they failed. They always failed. But this time he was waiting for her to look, waiting for her to catch his glance; and when she did everything else slowly faded away. She dared a smile, feeling braver than ever, and she could have sworn he was about to smile back. She could have sworn he was about to look at her the way he used to. It was almost perfect, and then he looked passed her towards another who had just walked in, and the almost-smile was replaced with an actual smile. She almost got that smile. She almost got her hope back. And even though she knew that he hadn’t deliberately ignored her, and that he was merely responding to an old friend who happened to stumble in behind her at the worst possible moment, she couldn’t help but be sick of all the almosts that existed between them.

"Pardon me, Vonnegut, but may I ask for a moment of your time?" Eudai inquired with a look of curiosity on his face as she stared into the black visor of the Malamar. "I noticed there is a rather peculiar individual, an armored Mewtwo by the name of Kieron? Why is his hatred for the Ralts line so deep?"

The malamar was working on filling out some paperwork in his office when Eudai entered. “Ah Eudai. Welcome. Come right in.”

As Eudai inquired on Kieron, the malamar knew he should at least come clean with him on Kieron. That mewtwo was causing more trouble for him than he was worth keeping around for missions.

“Kieron’s history is…complicated. He was created by an old colleague of mine through a failed attempt to create mewtwos that could be specialized for different types of combat.” His brow furrowed as he talked about the Caged Angel member. There were details he would leave out in order to not push Eudai away from the company. So he chose what to talk on carefully. 

“He did escape the lab from which he was created at one point and we had lost track of him for 17 months.” Those 17 months were a black mark for him and the company pre-restructuring and before David, Mercy and Leigh joined. If either of those three found out what Kieron did in those 17 months the whole program would be shut down.

“His disdain for the ralts line stems from a sense of inferiority he feels towards the whole line. He feels weaker than gallades and gardevoirs in particular.”

“I understand if you have any unnerving issues with Kieron. His hatred of the ralts line has caused trouble for everyone in this building, but as a member of the Caged Angels we need to try and emphasize the rehabilitation bit and give him the same freedom we give to Pras.” As much as Vonnegut hated Pras due being the son of the person who cost him his eyesight, he was bound to treat the Caged Angels with some form of dignity. No matter how many inspections he had to endure from many regional governments, infighting among members and Leigh arguing with him on operations.

But apart from my transformations, I was happier than I had ever been in my life. For the first time ever, I had friends, three great friends. Sirius Black, Peter Pettigrew and, of course, your father, Harry, James Potter. Now, my three friends could hardly fail to notice that I disappeared once a month. I made up all sorts of stories. I told them my mother was ill, and that I had to go home to see her, I was terrified they would desert me the moment they found out what I was. But of course, they, like you, Hermione, worked out the truth. And they didn’t desert me at all. Instead they did something for me that would make my transformations not only bearable, but the best times of my life. They became Animagi.

i know it was mostly taliesin talking but i just love the idea of percy just yelling for them to get vex up again for 90% of the fight

How Yuri On Ice has destroyed “National Stereotypes”

Watching the episode 8, with the apparition of all these new characters I HAD to write this post. 

And Finally tell everyone what I really think: Yuri On ice, in only 12 episodes, is literally DESTROYING the biggest barriers of our time. A sistematic and slow consumption that simultaneously is so NATURAL… So RIGHT that is shocking:

 Yuri on Ice is RECREATING the Anime scene, episode by episode.

But in this post I want to speak particularly about only one of these surpassed obstacle: The social cultural one

Since the first trailer I have noticed how this show was different: a sportive anime in which the personages are from different country??? My first thought was: “Ok this could be revolutionary or could fail and be another national stereotyped anime” 


 For me this was a very IMPORTANT detail, because since I was a child I was affected by national stereotypes, I don’t like them and they don’t like me. 

(I know that is stupid but really piss me off that In EVERY tv shows, films, tv series, anime There are only two kind of italian:

  1.  the half-aged man with black moustaches who is a pizza maker Or a mafious. 
  2. The stupid guy who is filtratious and too lazy to do anything)

Substantially if this kind of stereotypes have only comical intent, I laugh and enjoy them.(Look about Hetalia, this anime intentionally exaggerate to make satira)

 But with my horrors with the pass of time I realized that these categorizations are assimilated for real to my person…only because of my country. 

So I found myself in strange and uncomfortable conversations like: 

 “Oh you’re italian, so you don’t wake up before 8 a.m.” 

“C'mon you are so lucky! Italian guys are so pretty, and are very flirtatious!” 

“AH italy, mafia, Berlusconi!” 

“What this is your brother? Is he adopted? , italian don’t have red hair and fairy skin!”

My brother when has realized he was adopted ( this was very rude lol)


When I had this kind of discussion I was ALWAYS literally Shocked… at the point that I was really conditioned about my nationality and I always omitted where I were from. 

 The same happens with other countries as well! 

I’ve always heard this kind of things: 

 “I went to Canada this summer, the boys are really kind but they’re not hot enough” (wtf maybe the boys who YOU have met) 

“Mmh Russian boys are rigid af! They are so cold and all alcoholic!”

“Americans are black or white” (???????) 

“I wouldn’t marry a Swiss. They are precise and rich but too haughty”

I know Phichit-kun… I had the same reaction. 

In my opinion, this way of thinking creates a big GAP between different cultures so … even if in a first moment stereotypes can be funny, they’re a WRONG SIGNAL for general public. 

 But…Yuri On Ice is totally different from others shows. 

 The character’s characterization doesn’t refer to the normal national stereotypes but RESPECT every national identity and culture. 

We can notice how every personage first of all is a HUMAN BEING but at the same time has precise cultural references.

So we have

GRUMPY AND NOT LOVE-INTERESTED ITALIANS

But even if they have their own personality, they didn’t renounce to their national identity. 

 For example let’s analyse this scene:

Viktor offers some chinese food to celestino who kindly refuses, saying that is not “his kind of food”. 

We all know that Viktor  convince him and in the final scene we have a drunk Nikiforov

and a poisoned Celestino.

Originally posted by missingmagician

lol look at the shrimp near his mouth

Viktor in fact usally drink liquor and he seems to be used to it, without be an Alcoholic!. 

While Celestino is not used to eat different food likes chinese food ‘cause maybe he is too much attached to italians’ (n.b.I don’t know if it is a casuality but this manner for real affect a lot of us, we are truly convinced that italian food is irreplaceable ) 

 BUT this way of act is not EXAGGERATED, THEY ARE OF COURSE CONDITIONED BY THEIR CULTURE BUT THIS EFFECT DOESN’T DEFINE THEIR CHARACTER.

I just liked this gif…

In conclusion for the first time I feel comfortable watching a show in which there are a lot of different nationality.

 Thorough Yuri On Ice we can KNOW THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN US AND EMBRACE THEM. We can appreciate ourselves for what we are and learn about others naturally without prejudices.
And I really like it.

To the degree that Mr. Trump is serious about pursuing policies that improve the lives of working families in this country, I and other progressives are prepared to work with him. To the degree that he pursues racist, sexist, xenophobic and anti-environment policies, we will vigorously oppose him.

Your significant other should never allow anyone to disrespect you, especially people from the past. If this constantly occurs, reevaluate your relationship and consider whether your heart is safe in their hands. Your significant other should always want to protect you from anything that could potentially interrupt your peace and if they constantly fail to do this, then they clearly do not understand the concept of loyalty and do not deserve to be in your life. It’s that simple. Their loss.
