“I want my electric lasso. I would slice people in half. I would let my psychopathy out once and for all, and people couldn’t do anything about it ‘cause I would have a laser lasso and if you come at me, I’d slice you in half with it!”

What a good question Hibiki, how do you make curry?

Well really it’s pretty simple. You start with all your ingredients..

Which are, onions, carrors, potatoes, beef, some garlic, a bit of red wine, and of course your spices. Since I’m making a Japanese style curry I’m actually using Port since it’s a bit sweet, and Japanese curry is much sweeter than other curries. 

I might have forgotten to take pictures of the in between steps. I browned the beef, took it out, then sauteed the onions in the pot. Once they were translucent I added the meat back in and poured in some port to deglaze the pot. After you let the alcohol burn off, you throw in the vegetables then add whatever kind of stock you are using. You should let the curry simmer now, and not use a flame thrower to speed up the process :p

One of the most important parts of curry is having a good roux. All a roux is, is some flour that is browned in butter, with the curry spices. Typically you would just buy this at your local asian market, but regrettably I’m intolerant of gluten so I get to make it by hand. 

Once the roux has browned a bit, you add the spices in and stir it into your curry once it is done cooking. You give it a good stir and let the roux thicken up the curry and give it a really nice texture. Now that the curry is pretty much done, it is pretty common to grate in some apple to give it a bit of sweetness. I chose to add apricot preserve here at the end. It basically does the same thing. Doesn’t it look good?

And there is the final product. If you hadn’t figured it out yet, I’m a fan of wine, so of course I paired a wine with my curry. I chose a sweeter Riesling to go with it. I think a lot of people would chose a light to medium red wine, which wouldn’t be wrong, but a very light sweet white wine is actually an excellent pair with a lot of spicy Asian cuisine. The sweetness of the wine cuts into the spiciness of the curry and leaves a very pleasant flavour behind. 


So there you go, that’s how you make curry!

Idk if you've been asked this before, but what are your thoughts of Bensavi?

dunno how i feel about people calling what’s transpiring in the lwa fandom a ship war between ankko and dianakko fans, when the former is legitimately not doing anything to anyone besides loving and defending their ship and one of their favorite characters from the latter’s vitriolic portion of their fandom when we have to.

we’re not the ones invading the diana/dianakko tags at high speed, spouting bullshit that tears down diana as a character despite her development, invalidating the dianakko ship, or being downright nasty to the shippers just because they like or defend it. because not only do we not have anything against dianakko, as many of us see the validity in the ship, but we actually really love diana, and respect it/her and the shippers enough not to be dicks about something they love.

this whole mess is completely one-sided, as there hasn’t been a single andrew/ankko fan that said they hated diana/dianakko. we’re just getting fed up with some of its fandom and their inability to “stay in their lane,” so by default, our love of diana/dianakko is waning. the one and only thing we’ve asked, that many of them refuse to comply with, is that they don’t tag their hate in the andrew/ankko tags. that’s it. we don’t care if you hate andrew or ankko, though we wish people would actually give some real, valid reasons other than the usual, subjective opinion of “he’s boring,” “serves no purpose in the narrative,” “is a jerk,” etc., two of which aren’t true at all, because the narrative and his development actually contradict those last two “reasons" and the first applies to whichever individuals that personally feel that way. we just want you to stay out of the tags.

it’d be easier if people just came right out and said that he “got in the way of their ship,” because that is legitimately what it all boils down to, rather than us having to pick apart these strawman arguments every, single time someone finds the balls to enter the tag with a nasty ass attitude. i’m not saying that anyone who isn’t an andrew/ankko fan can’t enter the tags; i’m not the boss of anybody here. but, we’re pleading here, that if you don’t have authentic constructive criticism that we may have a genuine dialogue, instead of the billion and one “i hate this dude/ship because…” lists, then stop entering the tags. many of us have been through enough ship wars to last a lifetime and are getting quite sick of it.

one last thing, there’s a case of hypocrisy that i feel needs to be addressed here, in the case of the diana/dianakko and andrew/ankko fandoms. if you don’t want us to defend andrew/ankko, stop coming in the tag like you have a chip on your shoulder. keep that shit on your blog or find somewhere else to complain that’s not his or the ship’s tag, otherwise you will be met with opposition. you see, because we don’t actively go onto your blog or into the diana/dianakko tags seeking to start drama just because we prefer andrew/ankko. we don’t even send character/ship hate (that i know of). that would literally be us trying to shove our opinion down your throat like an angry mother bird, you know, kinda like what some of y'all do to us, and we don’t want to do that. instead, we block you to avoid it, because life’s too short to be bitching over which fictional character/ship is better, when they’re both valid characters/ships. we don’t invade the diana/dianakko tags at high voltage speed, because, newsflash, some of us are actually multishippers and know how to ship one without putting down the other, and we actually really respect how many of you feel about your preference. again, why? because they’re both good, balanced, healthy ships and help akko grow as a person. now, imagine if we did to diana/dianakko what many of y'all seem so intent on doing to us? yeah, not a pretty sight.

literally all we’re asking you guys to do is leave us alone. you don’t like andrew? that’s fine. you hate ankko? okay, cool. it’s a free country. but please, stay out of the tag with the aggressive/passive-aggressive remarks, blaming us for why you hate him/it even more when all we’re doing is what you’re doing - loving our ship and andrew without invalidating yours or diana.

this is getting beyond gross and old.

Imagine the boys teasing Woozi after finding out the name he used to save your contact in his phone because it’s so unlike him to use such a cute nickname.

Say You Won’t Let Go

It was a warm spring night, the kind that drew everyone outside and created a festival kind of feeling. Marinette and Alya walked merrily down the sidewalk, both of them looking forward to their dates. A new restaurant had just opened along the river, and the place had quickly become a favorite spot because of its beautiful outdoor seating area. Adrien had managed to snag four reservations for an open mic night.

“I’m telling you, your voice is great and you gotta get up there!” Alya said.

“No way, that place is gonna be so crowded,” Marinette shook her head. “I don’t think I could do it with so many eyes on me.”

“You sing for us all the time when we have karaoke night,” Alya pointed out.

“Yeah but that’s just us. I don’t want an audience.”

“Fine,” Alya waved a hand. “But if they have that new zedd song on the roster I’m dragging you up there with me.”

Hi can you give me some sh blogs to follow that don't have a lot of negativity please, this drama is giving me a headache

Hi! I may not be the best person to ask this of, but I will do my best. 

Tbh, I’m glad you are still following me after all of the drama I’ve been posting about. I advertise as “negativity free” with the intention being that I would only post positivity and nice things and stay away from the drama. Lol. I don’t think I’m doing too great at that. 

However, I have tried to remain level-headed and fair in regards to all the critical discussions happening in the fandom rn, when I do engage in it. I’ve lost several followers, but also gained some. So I must be doing something right XP. Thank all of you for sticking with me btw!!! You’re all amazing. 

Anywho….

I follow a lot of great people, but with the whirlwind of posts and opinions flying around I have not really kept track on all of my faves opinions on everything. I know they are all varying so you should totally check out the people I reblog frequently because even though they may have different opinions on what qualifies as negativity, they are all super nice, wonderful angels.

Miyaaaa thanks for answering our questions all the time. I can tell you put in so much effort when writing them I'm in tears uhu ;A; I'm curious who among BTS members have the tendency to be confrontational in relationships in general? Like telling a friend s/he is wrong or when they like someone have the stronger urge to confess etc.

Hii, anon! You’re very welcome, and thanks to you too for being so nice. <3 Shall we proceed?
