Humans are Weird: Seasons

I was thinking about how Earth is probably one of the rare planets with seasonal climates, due to its wonky tilted axis. So Earth has a crazy variety of climates and weather patterns, and humans have just learned how to deal, much to the confusion of everybody else. 

This was turning into a headcanon about how humans are bizarrely prepared for anything, and then I had a thought- Space Cruises

Druid Week: Druids in the Game

As a DM:

Versatility:

Druids already have a huge part in most roles, so they don’t need much in terms of catering. A bard might need to feel more involved in a campaign, but a support druid can also provide utility, tankiness, damage… they can Wild Shape or cast a spell whenever they need anything! They are one of the most versatile classes in the entire game. If they need encouragement, give them a variety of challenges (as you should always be doing, really) to force them to take more creative problem-solving measures.

Environment:

Make unique landscapes and environments for the druid. You don’t have to do it every time, but every once in a while feel free to go overboard. Floating midair land masses, waterfalls that flow upward, geysers of acid, an insect hive the size of a city… just describe some beauty shot that can really tug at the druid’s magic-strings. They will be interested in the unique plants and animals and magic there, which can influence how you populate such a land. Not to mention the other players will love such a wondrous place, too.

Fauna:

One thing a lot of DMs forget is to give druids a place to excel. Druids fall flat inside an enclosed dungeon. Give them space out in the open; in the wild. Give the druid some non-magical beasts to interact with. DMs always forget that regular threats like lions, tigers, and bears exist and with a druid, these often turn into roleplaying encounters rather than combat ones. Speak with Animals, Animal Friendship, Beast Bond, Beast Sense, Animal Messenger, Dominate Beast, Locate Creature, and Commune with Nature can all interact with beasts in some way. Beasts are everywhere if the druid is looking for them.

Flora:

Another thing to keep in mind is plant life. I just did a whole two-part post about Herbalism as a more fleshed-out system for 5e. Part 1 is just a pipeline of dice tables to make up new herbs. The herb could play a minor role in a story or adventure, or it could simply be a useful tool that exists in your world. For instance, I once had some herbs with yellow flowers that would act as healing potions, but you could only eat them twice within 24 hours or you would get sick. Ever since then, the players could find those herbs elsewhere and have a unique source of HP instead of a boring old potion. Plus they have the a-ha moment of realizing they found something useful on their own instead of opening a chest and finding it there. Part 2 of the Herbalism Guide was more about how to use the herbs as potion ingredients, as medicine, and as spell components. If you want to go the extra mile or want ideas for what herbs could do, use it!

Mood:

Just like clerics, druids can have supernatural senses that can add to the mood of an adventure. Imagine if you were a druid PC and the DM says “The druid senses something off about this forest. It makes you feel sick.” or “This jungle is in agony. You empathize with its pain, which feels like insects stinging you all over your body, and you can almost hear the wails of the trees.” Druids could make an Insight check to try and feel how a beast is feeling in the same way. It singles out the druid, identifies the problem as environmental corruption, and enhances the mood. What more could a DM want.

As a Player:

Get the Most Out of the Game:

Ask your DM questions about the flora and fauna and traits of the setting. When you travel to a new area in-game, be sure to cast Commune with Nature and get a lay of the land. This can add to the experience and provide vital information on targets for Locate spells, herbalism, and beast-influencing spells. Don’t be afraid to ask your DM for strange things that might not exist in the standard rules like “Can my druid think of any herbs that could cure paralysis in this environment?” The DM might find that intriguing and make it a plot point (making things a bit easier on the DM and giving you a potential solution to your problems to boot).

Don’t be afraid to request unique creatures to Wild Shape into, even if they aren’t in the book! I don’t see jellyfish in the Monster Manual but if a player asked me for it, I would just turn them into a Poisonous Snake with no land speed and 10 ft. swim speed, but maybe increase the poison damage a tad. And heck, who says there aren’t Giant Jellyfish in the realm of D&D? Use a Giant Poisonous Snake for that! You could easily reskin monsters like that, especially for cosmetic reasons. In the tropics? Turn into a Giant Parrot instead of a Giant Eagle. In the tundra? Turn into a Snow Hare instead of a Badger to better hide in the snow. In the desert? Turn into a Coyote instead of a Wolf. There are so many animals in the world, there is no excuse for creativity on your end as a druid!

Wild Shape:

Optimize the usage of your Wild Shape. Pick the right animals for the right jobs!

  • Mobility/Scout: Giant Elk, Deer, Hyena, Horses, Flying Snake, Giant Owl, Giant Eagle, Giant Badger, Ape, Panther, Giant Toad, and Giant Crab all have either fast movement or unique movement (fly, swim, climb, burrow).
  • Tackle: Lion, Panther, Allosaurus, Giant Octopus, Crocodile, Giant Constrictor, Giant Toad, and Giant Crab can all knock enemies prone or restrain them.
  • Poison Damage: Poisonous Snake, Giant Scorpion, Giant Spider, and Female Steeder (OotA) all have poison that can deal damage to those not resistant.
  • Sustained Damage: Wolf, Giant Crocodile, Tiger, Giant Boar, Ape, and Dire Wolf all deal reliable damage and have adequate tank.
  • Tank: Warhorse, Black Bear, Giant Constrictor, Rhino, Ankylosaurus, Whale, Elephant, Hulking Crab, Triceratops, and Mammoth all have a bunch of HP and AC.
  • Spy: Mule, Horses, Cat, Frog, Crab, Snakes, and Spiders are great at hiding and some have blindsight! Crag Cat (SKT) has Nondetection as well!
  • Thumbs: APES HAVE THUMBS. Which means that they can manipulate things other animals can’t. Also: You can wield your weapons while in Wild Shape!

Other tips: use summoned minions or your allies to help flank enemies while in Wild Shape. Cast buffs before you Wild Shape, make sue they don’t require concentration if you want them to stack, otherwise you can at least concentrate on one thing while in Wild Shape. If you are in a long dungeon with little to no rest,  save Wild Shape for big fights when the tank is worn down or save it for utility when the other casters are low on spells. Also for grappler beasts knock the enemies down before you grapple. Then they can’t move and when they break grapple they can’t get back up as easily!

Spells:

Buffs: Druids are great for buff spells. Be sure to buff yourself before entering Wild Shape! ex: Enhance Ability, Faerie Fire, Longstrider, Barkskin, Stoneskin, Protection from Energy, Antilife Shell

Zoning: Druids have crowd control spells, but many of them control crowds through zoning. Take advantage of the fact that you are the largest influence on the surrounding environment. You get to change the battlefield to your advantage! These are big, flashy spells that make the druid fun. Use them to put obstacles in front of creatures to slow their advances, make it harder for creatures to dodge, provide cover for your party, or force enemies into a trap. “Oh there’s a Wall of Fire there I better go around it” [gets bottlenecked by ranged PCs instead of taking fire damage] ex: Wind Wall, Wall of Fire, Entangle, Plant Growth, Spike Growth, Flame Sphere, Sleet Storm, Insect Plague, Wall of Stone, Wall of Thorns, Bones of the Earth (such a cool spell)

Minions: In D&D 5e, most ACs are nearly the same thanks to Bounded Accuracy. So more attack rolls equals more damage. Minions help with this, and druids can get plenty using Conjure Elementals, Conjure Fey, Conjure Woodland Beings, and Conjure Animals! Not to mention spells like Awaken and Dominate Beast to get more allies.

Healing: Druids are good at healing. Note that Healing Word is a bonus action and has range, unlike Cure Wounds. Druids also get the Restoration spells and Reincarnate, which is less powerful than Resurrection and such, but hey it’s something!

Damage: Druids can output damage, mostly through their zoning spells, but also with some neat single-target spells. Note that Moonbeam and Blight are rare sources of Radiant and Necrotic damage, respectively.

Utility: Druids have utility. Various divination spells can break the game if you are clever. Several spells help you get where you want to go or get rid of enemy spells. Use them liberally unless you have a Wizard to lighten the necessity for utility spells. ex: Speak with Plants/Animals, Water Breathing, Animal Messenger, Pass Without Trace, Find Traps, Locate Object/Animals/Plants, Gust of Wind, Detect Poison/Disease, Detect Magic, Dispel Magic, Meld into Stone, Scrying, Tree Stride, Commune with Nature

10 years ago: The Chris Benoit double murder-suicide
[June 25th, 2017]

It was Sunday, June 24th, 2007. I was at a Buffalo Wild Wings with my ex-girlfriend and a friend of mine as we’d gathered monthly to watch the WWE pay per view. On this instance, it was Vengeance: Night Of Champions, an event where CM Punk would be battling Chris Benoit to determine the new ECW World Heavyweight Champion, a title that had been vacated by Bobby Lashley. As the event went on, it was announced that John Morrison would be replacing Benoit, with little explanation given as to why Benoit wasn’t on the show.

The next day, as I was driving home from work, my friend Brandon (who I’d watched the pay per view with the night before) called to tell me the news: Chris Benoit was dead. As I sat at a stoplight only minutes from my house, I remember crying immediately. Benoit wasn’t just a favorite wrestler of mine, but an inspiration to work harder, to never give up, to persist in the face of adversity, and to chase every dream you have, regardless of whether or not they’re attainable. I remember a video package the WWE had released for Benoit featuring the Finger Eleven song “One Thing”. This song still stands as one of my biggest inspirations as I recall how hard Benoit worked in wrestling.

What made this death that much more of a shock to me was that only weeks earlier, Benoit had wrestled at an Ohio Valley Wrestling event that I was at. He was very personable, smiling at anyone who approached him and happy to speak with anybody who had questions. This is a photo snapped that day:

I watched Raw that night as Vince McMahon, who only a week earlier had been “blown up” in a limousine, stood solemnly in a ring that stood in an empty arena, speaking about Benoit as the episode showcased Benoit’s finest moments in the ring. The episode was originally supposed to be a 3-hour memorial tribute to McMahon. Throughout the night, different wrestlers spoke on their fallen friend, some very upset and downtrodden, but it seemed that some knew the grisly details where others hadn’t. Two testimonials that stood out to me were Chavo Guerrero Jr.’s, and a very grim one from William Regal:

Regal seemed to lead on that he knew more about the situation, as he neglected to comment on Benoit the man, but rather on Benoit the wrestler. As the week unfolded, details surrounding Benoit’s death came to light and showed that Chris, his wife Nancy (formerly known as Woman in ECW and WCW), and his youngest son Daniel were all found dead in the home that they shared in Atlanta, Georgia. According to the autopsy, Nancy was murdered first, bound at the feet and wrists. She died of asphyxiation on Friday, June 22nd, and was found wrapped in a towel with blood under her head and a bible placed next to her bed. According to the autopsy on Daniel, he had died on Saturday morning as he lay in bed, again with a bible placed next to him, with Benoit himself dying on Sunday, having used a weight machine to break his own neck as a bible lay on the weight machine.

Although that’s the official cause of death listed for each of those involved, there are a lot of details that have been ignored following the incident. For example, several voicemails were left by Benoit to wrestler Chavo Guerrero Jr. and WWE official Brad Armstrong, both of whom stated that Benoit seemed “off”. Chavo later told that he had spoken to Benoit, who claimed that he’d missed his flight and wouldn’t be appearing at Vengeance: Night Of Champions, and was stressed out due to Nancy and Daniel having food poisoning. On Sunday morning, between 3:51 and 3:58am, several texts were sent to co-workers and fellow wrestlers from both Chris and Nancy’s cell phones, stating that the dogs were in the enclosed pool area, and that the garage side door had been left open. A call was also placed to WWE officials by Benoit, who alleged that he was taking his family to the hospital and would be in Houston for the event.

According to Nancy’s sister, Sandra, Benoit’s computer history included “ the quickest and easiest way to break a neck”. When WWE official John Laurinaitis contacted the Fayette County Sheriff’s Department to check on the family, the police notified the WWE around 4:15pm to say that three bodies had been found, and that the home was ruled as “a major crime scene”.

Several motives have been listed for the crime, such as Benoit’s mental state being so deteriorated due to years of head trauma that his brain “resembled an 85-year-old Alzheimer’s patient”. Steroids were also listed as a potential lead for the cause, as “roid rage” has been prevalent for years among athletes, but as several wrestlers have stated since the incident, “how many baseball players have killed their wife and kid?” It’s also noted that steroid rage usually leads to “rage, not deliberation”, which leads to the question of why Nancy’s arms and legs had been bound. It’s been stated by Benoit’s peers that he was immensely paranoid, often traveling different routes from the airport to get to his home in order to evade potential followers. Several wrestlers have claimed that Benoit would have two sides: one that would lash out at you, and another that would be your best friend, with the events of the day dictating which one you spoke to. Brad Armstrong, however, stated that Benoit “never said a cross word to anybody”.

In 2003, Nancy had filed for divorce, citing “domestic abuse”, but the divorce was dropped and the two continued to be married until their deaths. Hardcore Holly would later state in his autobiography that Benoit would drink heavily when issues with Nancy would arise, which several wrestlers later confirmed. As more details surrounding the Benoit case arose, the WWE issued the following statement on SmackDown:

Good evening, ladies and gentlemen. Last night on Monday Night Raw, the WWE presented a special tribute show, recognizing the career of Chris Benoit. However, now some 26 hours later, the facts of this horrific tragedy are now apparent. Therefore, other than my comments, there will be no mention of Mr. Benoit’s name tonight. On the contrary, tonight’s show will be dedicated to everyone who has been affected by this terrible incident. This evening marks the first step of the healing process. Tonight, WWE performers will do what they do better than anyone else in the world: entertain you. 

Following this, the WWE have done all but eliminate Benoit from their history, often negating that he was part of several high profile events such as the Royal Rumble which Benoit won in 2004, or the main event of WrestleMania XX, where Benoit defeated Triple H to win the World Heavyweight Championship. Truly tragic, as the moment has often been cited as one of the greatest in ‘Mania history.

This photo is said to have been taken on Saturday morning, as Nancy was dead in Benoit’s home. One strange part of the Benoit situation is that Nancy’s Wikipedia page (which can be edited by anyone) listed Nancy as being dead 14 hours before the bodies were found. The original edit listed, “Chris Benoit was replaced by Johnny Nitro for the ECW World Championship match at Vengeance, as Benoit was not there due to personal issues, stemming from the death of his wife Nancy.” The man who posted this claimed that it was written due to rumors he’d heard on the internet, and it was found that he’d also made several edits to other Wikipedia articles that were unfounded.

It was claimed that Benoit was “given ten months to live due to an enlarged heart” by Nancy’s sister. What’s strange about the case is that a large knife was found under Daniel’s bed. Prior to her marriage to Benoit in 2000, Nancy was charged with aggravated battery after chasing her former husband, Kevin Sullivan, with a knife in 1997. Benoit’s friend Dean Malenko stated, “He’s not a monster. We’re talking about a guy who, a month ago, was in Jacksonville and rather than drive down to Orlando, where he needed to be the next day, he took a flight to be home with Daniel.”

Another bizarre detail that never seems to get mentioned is that wrestler Dave Taylor was allegedly spotted at the Benoit residence before police arrived. Benoit’s neighbor Holly Schrepfer was contacted by police to enter the property before they arrived to secure the dogs and check on the family. She discovered the bodies, and whilst fleeting the home, claimed that she saw Dave and his wife carrying a platter of deli food. In no way does this point to Taylor being involved in the deaths, but it’s possible that he was coming by to check on his friend. It was suggested that he was sent by the WWE to check everything out and get the facts early to prevent a PR problem. This could also be why William Regal’s tribute was so grim, as the two were friends and tag team partners in the WWE. Taylor has since denied that this is possible, as he says he was in Texas on tour with the WWE. There is no evidence for him being in either location, other than Schrepfer’s claim.

Benoit kept a personal journal following the death of longtime best friend Eddie Guerrero. In it, he would write letters to Eddie, which makes me wonder why he never wrote a suicide note or a farewell. In the personal effects returned to Benoit’s father, a handwritten note was found in a bible that said “I am preparing to leave this Earth.” Within a few months of each other, Guerrero, Johnny Grunge, and Victor “Black Cat” Mar all died, respectively consisting of Benoit’s best friend, his local buddy who he went to after problems with Nancy, and his riding partner on Japanese tours. Chris’ diary remains weren’t found by police, but rather by neighbor Holly Schrepfer in a garbage can.

There are a lot of facts that don’t make sense with what has been alleged to have happened. Toxicology reports claim that all three involved in the incident, Chris, Nancy, and Daniel, were sedated heavily. There are claims that beer cans were found near Benoit’s body, but there was no alcohol found in his system. There were texts sent from Benoit’s phone that were sent AFTER Benoit’s time of death, as determined by police.

There are several wrestling fans who have turned on Benoit and refuse to give credit to his hard work in the sport. That is their prerogative. I personally loved Benoit as a wrestler and will never shun the fact that he gave a lot to wrestling, but I also don’t have children and have never been married. I don’t know how I’d feel from that perspective. That being said, after watching several videos and reading endless articles and write-ups regarding the case, I do think that everything is worth a second look, as I don’t think it happened quite like we all have been told that it did. Nevertheless, two great figures of wrestling history died ten years ago, and the wrestling world was changed forever as a result.

Rest in peace, Chris, Nancy, and Daniel.

When They First Meet You Headcanons w/ RFA Guys

These headcanons aren’t based on any endings so therefore there are NO SPOILERS! If you’re reading these and realise similarities it’s purely coincidence as I haven’t played all the endings yet!
Also, I hope that even though these might not fit with what you might think will happen,you’ll like them regardless. On that note, enjoy and requests are open!


Warnings: mentions of sex

Yoosung:

  • The first thing Yoosung would do is fling himself onto you and press his lips to yours passionately. He’s been speaking to you for so long and developing this attraction to you, he’s bound to want that release he’s been dying to get out for however long it’s been.
  • He’d then be really embarrassed and hug you to hide his red face.
  • You’d tell him it’s okay, but he’d still be embarrassed.
  • After that, he’d ask you before he did anything in case he made you uncomfortable.
  • “C-Can I hold your hand?”
  • He’d make sure you knew he cared for you more than anything, and that he was thankful that out of everyone on the planet, you were the one to take over Rika’s place in the RFA.
  • He wouldn’t play games the entire time you were there, and t be honest he didn’t miss it one bit.
  • He’d cook for you and it’d be your favourite meal. Needless to say it was delicious because he’s been practising for you.
  • He wouldn’t want you to leave but he’d try to uphold a positive attitude and tell you, that you could see each other again very soon.
  • Once you left, Yoosung would almost instantly call you, afraid of you getting hurt in any way and you being hurt like Rika.

Jumin:

  • When Jumin first meets you, he swears his heart stops and his breath gets caught in his throat.
  • However being a very professional guy, he gives you a professional greeting. A handshake.
  • “It’s a pleasure to finally meet you Y/N.”
  • At first he’d subconsciously make you feel like a business partner rather than his romantic love interest. Jaehee makes sure to keep telling Jumin that you want to be spoken to less formally and keeps telling you not to take it too personally.
  • Jumin wants to hold your hand, or to be close to you, but he couldn’t just yet.
  • Instead of any physical interaction, you both interacted emotionally. You told him about yourself and even, to his surprise, asked about Elizabeth the 3rd. From that second he knew that he’d fallen for you and that his precious Elizabeth the 3rd would love you too.
  • He’d then take you wine tasting, considering it’s something he loves to do in his spare time along with reading, and would even offer to buy you the most elegant and expensive wine there. However you couldn’t let him do that.
  • Jumin would take you home in a limo, make sure you get there safe,and heliked to see to it personally instead of just leaving you with Driver Kim.
  • After you leave, he’d call Jaehee and ask her one crucial question.
  • “How long is the appropriate time to wait before you ask for someone’s hand in marriage?”

707

  • He’s goofy asf, so for the first meeting, don’t expect it to be romantic.
  • He’d ruffle your hair and bring you into his place and show you all his equipment.
  • Although not really romantic, he’d be so cute-sy with you. Telling you corny jokes and unoriginal pick-up lines.
  • “Did it hurt when you fell?”
  • “Fell?”
  • “From heaven.”
  • “What?”
  • “Get it? You’re an angel.”
  • Constantly laughing and giggle to each other. If anyone else was there, they’d think you’d both taken something.
  • He’d also gush to you about Jumin’s precious Elizabeth the 3rd because he knows it makes you jealous. And the little scowl on your face makes him smile.
  • You also talk about how ‘fun’ it is to tease Yoosung. Well, 707 did, you refused to play along because you felt bad for Yoosung.
  • You have very limited time with Seven, because his job is so demanding, and once he gets called you need to go. So you might not be with him for long, but he does make you laugh
  • When you have to go, Seven likes to give you a hug and a short sweet first kiss because give him some credit - he’s completely into you! And he feels slightly sad when you’re gone, but makes sure to check in to the chat regularly to see if you’re online.

Zen

  • Definitely the most ‘forward’ meeting out of them all.
  • At first, you were both so nervous. And it was apparent in your posture and not to forget the awkward silence.
  • Eventually Zen would comment on how handsome he was because we need to address the elephant in the room. But he follows it up with, “but you’re much more beautiful than I am Y/N.”
  • He’d then hold your hand and you’d look at him with eyes that captivate him and automatically make him fall head over heels for you - considering he’s been chatting you up and sending you photos of his handsome face for a while.
  • He’d be a gentleman. Without a doubt would cherish you. He’d take you out or order take out whatever you prefer and you’d watch TV - drink some form of beverage (possibly alcohol).
  • But you wouldn’t go home. Something tells me that, even though Zen is 100% NOT a fuckboy, you’d be ‘spending the night’ if you know what I mean.
  • He’d said in the chat so many times, he hadn’t had a girlfriend in ages. Nor even a ‘female companion of the sorts’ and that he really did want a girlfriend… Something serious. He definitely found that in you.
  • So on the first night, depending on whether you’re up for it, I’d see there being some slow, gentle, passionate an romantic sex.
  • If you’re not up for sex, I still see you staying the night, and still sleeping in his bed with him, after watching a few of his plays/musicals and commenting/praising him on how handsome he looks and how amazing he is at acting and singing.
  • In the morning he’d make you breakfast and let you stay for however long you wanted before he walked you home and made sure you were safe.

anonymous asked:

Could you please write about the RFA members eating something and get some food on their cheek or the corner of their mouth, so MC sensually licks it off for them? Nsfw if possible, but fluff is also good ;)

anonymous asked:

What are your thoughts on Wanda? One thing that really really bothers me about her is that her crimes aren't really acknowledged? I feel like cap especially infantilizes her a bit, if she's old enough to be a full avenger, she's not a kid. Plus that line 'i can't control their fear only my own' sounds great except she terrorised the avengers with their worst fears, literally invaded their minds which was also never addressed by any of them?? Honestly how can there be any trust for her at all?

How can there be any trust for Tony, who for years didn’t give a shit that he built bombs that destroyed lives?

How can there be any trust for Natasha, who was raised from childhood to be a remorseless killer for the KGB, and murdered untold numbers of innocents?

How can there be any trust for Bruce, when his alter ego destroys cities and leaves profound carnage in his wake?

How can there be any trust for Thor, who isn’t even from earth, and who happily started a war for his own ego and considered all non-Asgardians inferior races and advocated for genocide of the Jotnar?

How come fandom is (rightfully) willing to accept the redemption arcs of every other character, accept their growth and heroism, but always wants to fucking shit on Wanda?

Like with many, many, many other heroes, Wanda fucked up, learned, and grew as a person, and became a hero. We even get to watch it happen. But it baffles me that people somehow choose to be willfully ignorant so they can make the foreign refugee woman a scapegoat for the actions of the privileged rich white guy, and it frankly is one of the more disgusting habits of this fandom and pisses me right the fuck off. 

One thing that really really bothers me about her is that her crimes aren’t really acknowledged?

Yeah, funny how Bruce Banner is on trial for all the people Hulk killed and Tony TOTALLY faced a tribunal for war crimes for– oh wait! They didn’t! We don’t lock up all our superheroes for the shit they do because let’s face it, the genre would be really boring if we did. But funny enough, WANDA DOES GET LOCKED UP. And blamed for things that are absolutely not her fault. She owns her misdeeds in AOU in the very same movie by changing sides, risking her life, and being willing to die taking Ultron down in atonement for her role in the whole situation. At the end, she has lost everything; her home, her family, her twin, and only by Vision’s intervention has she not also given her life. How much more do you need her to suffer? And why are people like you only demanding punishment for Wanda and not demanding the accountability of every other character who has ever done wrong – like, say, Tony for building Ultron in the first place?

I feel like cap especially infantilizes her a bit, if she’s old enough to be a full avenger, she’s not a kid.

I really hate how Wanda-Antis latch on to this line and blatantly and deliberately misinterpret it, when context is perfectly clear in the scene. When Steve says “She’s just a kid” he isn’t saying “she’s a child” – If Steve were infantilizing her, he wouldn’t go speak to her with respect as an equal, he wouldn’t trust her to have his back in battle, and unlike Tony, he wouldn’t drag an actual child into battle. With that line he’s responding to Tony’s COMPLETE AND TOTAL DEHUMANIZATION OF HER when he refers to her as a weapon and not a person. Steve is highlighting that she is a person, a person who is young and capable of mistakes and still learning, and a person who is  VULNERABLE (Keep in mind Wanda is 20, she’s old enough that she can make her choice to join the Avengers, but her development was interrupted due to having her childhood stripped away from her and growing up as an orphan in a warzone), and that she should maybe be protected and guided instead of scapegoated and exploited. (Plus Tony seems to think Peter at fifteen is old enough to be an Avenger, but still treats him like a child to be grounded, so maybe Steve isn’t the character we need to be looking at critically here when it comes to full avenger vs. kid) 

Plus that line ‘i can’t control their fear only my own’ sounds great except she terrorised the avengers with their worst fears, literally invaded their minds which was also never addressed by any of them?? 

Again, you are taking a line completely out of context, on purpose. “I can’t control their fear, only my own” is describing the fact that she can’t control the public’s perception of her. She can’t – and wouldn’t – get in the mind of every single citizen to change how they see her and feel about her. But she can control how she responds, and how she reacts to her own deep-seated insecurities. 

You’re right that we don’t see everything on screen showing how the other Avengers got past her being in their heads. But since she’s been on the team all this time, and they are working together, presumably amends were made at some point. They weren’t shown explicitly to us, true. But the movie makers I guess assumed we’re reasonably intelligent enough to figure out it happened at some point. I’d be willing to guess that it even happened before the end scene of AOU where we see her joining the formal Avengers roster. Time has passed, and forgiveness has clearly happened offscreen. Maybe fandom can take a note from the actual heroes, and realize that forgiveness is, you know, a thing. If it bothers you that it wasn’t in the movie, go write a fic to fill it in. 

It’s also worth noting that even when she is fighting HYDRA terrorists, or in the pitched Avengers battle in Leipzig, Wanda never resorts to getting into the heads of others. There is clearly a line that has been established that going into people’s heads is too far, and even when she is locked up, bound and collared like an animal, Wanda never crosses that line again.

But Wanda haters apparently never bother to notice that.

My thoughts on Wanda are that she was a child who lost her family to violence, grew up in a warzone, and then was recruited as a teen/young adult in a time of desperation by an organization that lied to her, used her, changed her, and exploited her (the official MCU comic tie-in shows that Wanda and Pietro did not know that Strucker was HYDRA). She’d grown up scared, angry, and surrounded by violence, with a burning thirst for revenge. But when she realized how many civilians were being hurt in her quest for revenge, realized that it was misguided and wrong, she changed her course. She switched sides, and was willing to lay her life down to make right her wrongs. She lost EVERYTHING – her home destroyed, her twin dead – and instead of taking time to mourn or try to find her own life, she joined the Avengers so that she could continue to try to do good and stop people like Rumlow. And despite the horrors that have defined her life, she remains sensitive; she blames herself for everything, is clearly empathetic (she’s on the brink of tears when Ross shows the footage of destruction), and struggles with her insecurities and sense of self-worth. She went through a rather typical arc of ‘misguided-antagonist-turned-hero’, choosing to continue with being a hero to make up for her past. 

And yet, while fandom eats up this arc with every other character it applies to, they reject Wanda and treat her like shit so they can justify other characters’ dehumanization of her. And I think that’s pretty fucking shitty, anon. 

youtube

Copied over from my youtube because everyone needs to go and do this and explore - no glitch files or extra playthroughs required and it’s good fun.

I absolutely did not discover this, but I haven’t seen a how-to for this much easier method of breaking out of bounds with a chocobo to swim to Anglegard or Altissia, so I thought it might be helpful to share.

I’ve tried this with every possible permutation of parties within every glitch I’ve heard of thus far, and it’s always worked. In fact my first shot was with the older party who I had moved to past!Lucis - I took them to Altissia and Anglegard both, easy peasy.

Pre-Req:
You need to have access to chocobos, so you’ll need to be at least ch3 for first playthrough. NG+ you have them from the start. Have at least a few days on your rental period just to be safe.
*optional: I highly suggest completing Wiz’s quests until he gives you some Curiel Greens, which will then also be added to the greens shop at the Post, and suggest buying a few of those. Sylkis probably work too - any that amp up galloping speed. Before attempting this, camp and feed your chocobos the greens. It increases their swimming speed significantly.

Step 1: On foot, head to the Galdin Shoals fishing spot east of Galdin Quay.

Step 2: While standing on the dock/platform, call your chocobo. It sometimes takes a couple tries with the whistle. When it shows up it will be in the water already out of bounds.

Step 3: Call your chocobo from different spots right up against the invisible barrier on the rocks until it comes close enough that the ‘mount’ option appears. This is annoying and may take awhile (took me about 3 minutes in this vid, as you’ll see).
*note: I’m playing on a digital copy of the Japanese version of the game, so it’s a little easier because the 'mount’ button is not also the 'jump’ button. It’s more frustrating on the NA version, but just keep at it I promise you’ll get it eventually.
**EDIT: I may have underestimated just how frustrating this is on the NA version. After trying it a few times myself now it’s taken me between 15 and 30 minutes pretty much every time.

That’s basically it! As soon as you’ve successfully mounted your chocobo you’re out of bounds, so a jump gets you into the sea where you can start swimming. As an added bonus, the bros join Noct with this method, which is fun because at least there is banter on those long swims. It does confuse the hell out of their AI though, so if you want them to follow Noct wherever you’re going for the entire journey, keep an eye on them constantly. You’ll need to go back and corral if one gets stuck.

Credit for discovering this OOB method is absolutely not mine. Unfortunately I have no idea who it should go to, as I heard about it from a friend and haven’t been able to find the source video. If anyone does know where that video is please let me know so I can link it! :)

Aarush is actually 2-3 years older than Eva, though obviously that physical difference isn’t as apparent when they get older.

Random Headcanons: 

  • Junkrat always keeps his prosthetic arm off whenever he cares for the kids as per Symmetra’s request. Nothing is a worse combo than tiny fingers + a pinchy prosthetic.
  • On that note, he also opts into wearing a shirt when caring for them so they have something to hold onto while he carries them with one arm.
  • This is literally the only time he ever wears a shirt. The depth of love he has for his children knows no bounds or dress code.
  • Junkrat pretty much always looks at his children with an enamored sense of awe on a daily basis. This even happens when they are well into adulthood, TRUE FACT.

This is mainly the taunting of the BAU and dipping into the reader’s POV briefly. (Side note: this got so much darker than I ever intended for it to be.) Again not as many Hotch X Reader feels in this part, but it will be in the next part I promise :)

Part 1 Part 3 Part 4


Hotch and Rossi walked back in from their much needed short walk outside, which unfortunately for you had been around the back of the building, not the front. Hotch glanced around the room mentally checking off each team member and monitoring what their activities. The lack of your presence disturbed him greatly. “Where’s (Y/N)?” He asked Prentis because she was the last person he saw you with.

“She’s not with you?” she asked clearly alarmed as she looked back and forth between him and Rossi.

“Why would she be with us?”

“Because she made a possible connection that might lead us to our unsub when she saw who our missing woman was, and she ran outside to tell the two of you.”

“And you let her?”


“She really didn’t give me a choice,” Emily defended.

“Which way?” Hotch demanded. Emily pointed to the front door of the station. “Damn it, we were out back,” he growled, jogging to the doors. “(Y/N)! Are you out here?” Aaron shouted, as he threw the doors open. You were nowhere to be found. “(Y/N)! Where-”

“Aaron,” Rossi muttered, kneeling down to look at something on the ground.

“What is it?” Aaron asked hesitantly, as he slowly turned around. Rossi shook his head and picked your credentials up off the ground.

“He’s got her.”

“Damn it!” Hotch shouted, slamming his fist against the wall. “I knew that I should’ve-”

“That doesn’t matter now,” Rossi cut him off. “It happened and now we do something about it. The longer we stand here, the longer he’s alone with her. Now get your head out of your ass and let’s find her.” Hotch took a deep breath and rubbed his hands over his face.

“You’re right, I just-”

“I know and we are going to find her, but we can’t do that standing here without the team,” Rossi replied and walked back into the station with Aaron following close behind.

“(Y/N)’s gone,” Hotch stated as Rossi tossed your creds on the table.

“What? She couldn’t have been out there for more than five minutes if that long!” Emily cried.

“Which just proves that he has perfected his method of abduction. No one heard or saw anything,” Rossi muttered.

“Maybe there’s something on the cameras,” JJ suggested.

“I doubt it but I’ll get Garcia look anyways,” Morgan replied, pulling out his phone

“Guys, there’s a note,” Reid said, pulling the small folded up piece of paper from your credentials. “‘Thank you for my new toy. She was well worth the chase. I think that I’ll take my time with this one.’ signed the Raleigh Ripper,” he read. Hotch repeatedly clenched his hands together trying to stay calm. “He’s getting bolder. He’s never taunted law enforcement before.”



“He’s also never taken two women in one day. The abduction of the M.E. should’ve been it. What changed?” JJ asked.

“(Y/N). He tried to abduct her, but since I was there he ran and couldn’t finish what he started. He saw her as a challenge,” Derek clarified.

“Ok, but what’s his end game? Now he’s got two women, one of which is a federal agent, he has to know that this isn’t going to end well.”

“I hate to say this, but what if he knows that there isn’t anything to connected him to any of his victims and that we probably won’t find them until it’s too late?” Reid mumbled quietly. The whole team fell silent at that thought.

“Not an option and we aren’t giving up. Morgan get Garcia to pull records. I don’t care if the person is an eight-year-old, I want to know every person who’s ever been in those buildings, and get her to put a lock on (Y/N)’s phone. He’s good, so I can almost guarantee that it’s off, but if it turns on again I want to know the second it does,” Hotch said, fighting the urge to walk out of the room and break something. “Reid go back through all the case files and see if there’s anything we missed. Prentis and JJ, look into the workplaces again. Rossi help Reid. I’ll be back in a second, I need to make a call and update the detectives.” Aaron stormed off toward the conference room and shut the door behind him.

“Rossi, is he alright?” JJ whispered, watching Hotch close all of the blinds in the room.

“No, he’s not. Right now he’s feeling like he failed at his job and that it’s his fault that she’s gone,” he replied.

“How do we help him?”



“Right now, you can’t. Just work on finding the slip up so we can get (Y/N) back,” Rossi said and walked over to the conference room. He knocked twice on the door, before opening it. “Aaron?” he called, hesitantly. He walked in and shut the door behind him. Hotch didn’t move or acknowledge his presence. He just sat in one of the chairs, leaning forward with his head in his hands. “Aaron, beating yourself up about this isn’t helping her.”

“I feel responsible,” he grumbled.

“I know, but we all feel responsible. We knew she fit into the victim pool, and-”

“All the more reason that I should’ve made her stay back in Quantico where she would’ve been safe.”

“Hotch-”

“Dave, I haven’t felt this lost and helpless since-”

“Foyet,” David finished for him.

“I can’t lose her like I lost Haley, Dave, I just can’t,” he muttered, a single tear rolling down his cheek.

“Aaron, you need to have faith in our team. Right now, we have the best chance of finding her alive if we can get to her within the first twenty-four hours, but to do that we need all hands on deck,” David said trying to comfort his friend.

“But what if we can’t? What if we find her dead on some bench? I’ll never-”

“Aaron, you can’t think about that right now. Right now she’s terrified, probably in a lot of pain, and all alone. Right now, you need to concentrate on finding her rather than what ifs.” Hotch sat almost rooted in place. He wiped the tear from his cheek and looked up at Rossi.

“Ok.”

“Good. Now let’s get out girl back,” Rossi said, smiling sadly at Hotch and walked back out of the conference room. Aaron sat there another moment trying to find his composure. He stood slowly and looked out the window to the outside world.

“(Y/N), we are coming for you. Please be ok,” he muttered and strode back out into the main area of the station to aid the team as much as he could in his present state.


You groaned as light flooded into the room. Your head was throbbing with intense pain. “What the hell?” you muttered, trying to shift and stand up. Your movement was abruptly stopped by thick metal chains that were secured around your wrists and throat. You were shackled to a wall, the chains only allowing you to move your arms high enough to touch your shoulder and your wrists were bound together. The collar of your blouse had been torn, exposing more collarbone and cleavage than you ever would’ve considered showing in public, and your pencil skirt had ridden up. Your shoes also were missing for some unknown reason. Noting that you were in a basement of some kind, you suddenly remembered what happened. “Oh, shit.”

“Well, look who finally woke up,” the man chuckled. You slowly turned your head to look around. “You were so worth the chase it took to get you here,” he snickered taking a drag on the lit cigarette in his right hand.

“Where am I?” you demanded, rattling your shackles.

“Somewhere your little FBI friends won’t be able to find you.”

“Ha,” you snorted, “You don’t know my team. They are the best at they do and they are going to find me, you sick son of a-” he lunged forward and pressed the lit end of the cigarette down on your exposed collarbone. You bit down on your lip and tried your best not to cry out, knowing that would be giving him exactly what he wanted. You grit your teeth and clenched your fists.

“Oh, tough girl ain’t ya? Well, I guess you’d have to be to be a woman in the FBI,” he cackled, taking your face in his hands. “I’m going to enjoy slowly breaking you, torturing you until you scream for mercy.” You narrowed your eyes and spit in his face. He recoiled back and slapped you hard across the face.

“Go to hell, bastard,” you spat.

“Bitch,” he growled, wiping his face, “I’ll teach you some manners later, but I have to deal with my other toy first.” He slapped you again, before storming out of the room and locking the door behind him. You could hear the screams of the other woman who you assumed was the M.E. he’d kidnapped before you. You let your head fall again and resisted the urge to start crying. You needed to find the faith you claimed moments ago to have in your team, but you also had to find a way to help yourself and try to help the other woman being held captive. The burn on your collarbone stung as you tried to move your shoulder. You lifted your head again and began to study the room around you. It was still slightly clouded with cigarette smoke. You figured you had to be in some kind of basement, but you had no idea where or what building. A bloodcurdling scream rang through the room making you jump slightly. You noted the presence of two small windows on the wall in front of you. You sighed and pressed your head into the cold wall behind you.

“Guys, I’m sorry for being stubborn and stupid,” you mumbled to no one in particular. For some reason, you felt the need to express your regrets vocally instead of just talking to yourself in your head. The sound of the lock turning in the door pulled you from your thoughts and your captor came back in.

“Time to go, bitch.”

“What did you do to her?”

“Nothing like what I’m going to do to you,” he growled and slapped you. He quickly unlocked the lock that shackled your neck chain to the wall and hauled you up to your feet. You threw your shoulder into his chest and swept his legs out from under him. He yelped in pain as he landed his side. You made a mad sprint for the door, but the man was up and after you before you had made it across the room. He stomped on the chain attached to the collar around your neck. The action effectively choked you briefly and sent you rapidly to the ground. You hit your head hard against the door in front of you and groaned as you collided with the floor. “You just don’t have any manners do you, I’ll have to start your lessons now,” he snarled and started to unzip his pants.

“No, no, no,” you whimpered, trying to crawl away. He pinned you to the ground and started ripping at your skirt as you silently cried.  


Every passing moment that you weren’t around seemed to be wearing down the team’s hope of finding you. Hotch had been pacing in a straight line for so long, Rossi thought there would be a permeant trench where he had been pacing. After four hours of searching, it still wasn’t looking good. “Please tell me someone has something,” Aaron asked, stopping to look at the team. Everyone looked around at each others’ blank and sad faces. “Garcia?”

“Sir, I’m running through backgrounds on everyone who works or has worked in all of these buildings, but that’s a lot of names and that’s going to take some time,” she replied sadly.

“Time is one thing that we don’t have a lot of right now,” Rossi muttered returning to the file he was looking at.

“Oh my god!” Penelope shrieked, typing quickly.

“What is Baby Girl?” Derek asked.

“Her phone! (Y/N)’s phone just turned back on.”

“Can you get a fix on it?” Hotch demanded, rushing toward the table.

“It’s running through hundreds of different towers and frequencies, but if it’s on long enough-” the sound of Aaron’s phone ringing interrupted the conversation. He fished it out of his back pocket. The sight of your name flashing across the screen sent chills down his spine.

“I’ll try and keep the call going as long as I can,” he muttered and accepted the call setting it on speaker. “(Y/N), are you-”

“Aaron Hotchner?” a gruff male voice asked.

“This is special agent Aaron Hotchner, who is this?”

“Your agent has been telling me about your team and how you are going to find her, but considering she’s still here this seems less than true,” he snickered, laughing sinisterly. Hotch clenched his fists at his side.

“Listen to me, we are going to find you and you are going to rot in prison for the rest of your life, and if anything happens to her-”

“Oh plenty of things have already happened to her,” the man sneered. A metal clack was heard and your scream echoed into the room.

“(Y/N)-”

“Such a tough one, but she doesn’t have any manners or respect for authority figures does she?”

“Just let her-”

“Do you know how much faith she has in you, very special agent Hotchner? She kept screaming out your name over and over again, begging you to come and save her as I took her and made her bleed,” he cackled, ending the call. Hotch slammed his hand against the table.

“Please tell me you got it and we found her,” he muttered.

“Not long enough for an exact location,” Penelope cried in frustration. “But I- Oh my god.”



“What? What is it? What’s wrong?” JJ asked hurriedly.

“Are you near a laptop?”

“Yeah, why?” Emily asked. Suddenly a web browser opened up to a video feed that turned the team’s blood cold. The video seemed to be being streamed from a basement somewhere. You were strapped down by your wrists and ankles to a surgeon’s table. Your clothes were tattered and torn in places they clearly should not have been. You had a white rag tied around your mouth as a gag, makeup streaming down your face with your tears. Three long cuts ran down the center of your back.

“Oh (Y/N),” Derek muttered.

“Garcia,” Hotch prompted, praying that she at least had something.

“Right sorry,” she mumbled, wiping the tears from her face. “So that sicko ended the call before I could get an exact location on the phone because he was running it through so many towers, but the call lasted long enough that I narrowed it to a five-mile radius.”

“How many-”

“Abandoned buildings, warehouses, and sketchy places are within that radius? Already done. There is one abandoned warehouse and then two construction sights that would fit the bill, and I can rule out the warehouse because it is currently being demolished. Both of the construction sights were deserted six months ago when the projects fell through. The head on each of the sights was a Daniel Owens,” she chronicled and a picture of your attacker opened on the screen.

“That’s him,” Morgan confirmed.

“Both addresses have been sent to your phones. You’re about ten minutes away from both.”

“Good work, Garcia. Reid, Rossi, JJ you take the first location. Prentis, Morgan, and I will take the second,” Hotch delegated as the team strapped their vests on.

“Sir?” Penelope said hesitantly.

“What is it, Garcia?”

“Please bring our (Y/N) home. I can’t imagine a world without that angel,” she pleaded.

“We’re going to do our best,” Hotch promised, ending the call. The team sprinted out the SUVs and drove off to the two locations. All of them were praying that you would hold on until they got there.

Home made textbook studying

After posting about my 100 page textbook i made which i use to study for exams, i received a lot of messages asking me about it… so I’ve decided to make a big post about it so you guys can see fully what i do! 

1) Gather relevant information from lectures 

- I usually print off lecture notes and use my extensive pen collection to highlight and write notes and blah blah blah

2) Get typing

Using my lecture notes i sort through relevant information and type it up in a word document. I do this from the beginning of semester to the end. (usually 12 lectures for me) The way you organise this is completely up to you, the way you title stuff and organise it and classify information and whatnot… find something that works for you! I add diagrams and any other information that helps.

3) Print 

After the last lecture of the semester, my document is finished. Mine this semester was around 100 pages long (for biology). During the semester i use the notes on my computer to study from and i am continuously adding/ removing stuff, i love doing this as it also means I’m continuously reading over my notes and critiquing them throughout the semester.

I go down to office works and get it printed and bound… it only cost me $11.50! (Black and white) - Getting it in colour is a lot more expensive and seeing as though most of it is typing, just stick to black and white… if i have diagrams i go over and colour them in… i learn a lot from doing this!

This is what it looks like: 

4) Summariseeee

Using my not newly printed and bound notes, i condense this even further. I just usually write these out pretty messily as its just to get it down in my head!.. i also use this information to make my palm cards

5) Palm Cards

- I go through my type text book and colour code certain sections… i then use this colour code to make my palm cards! I make up questions which are relevant to the information and viola! On one side i have my question (with the colour code) and the info (which i condensed from my summaries)  on the other! I like doing this as it forces me to READ my actual notes and comprehend them. 

I do this as it incorporates typing, writing and reading! (and drawing if your feeling super motivated)  i Feel like it covers all areas of studying techniques and it really helps me when studying for subjects that have ALOT of information! If you can’t be bothered to summarise or make palm cards then its still really nice to have clean, organised printed notes suited to your own understanding of the subject. My friends also love me when i do this as they are constantly asking for my textbook to study from! 

Hope this has helped! If you have further questions just ask! 

Haikyuu!! Chapter 257: Just and Proper

This is what I like from Haikyuu and Furudate-sensei. Everyone has their chance to shine and to develop as a character. This time is Kinoshita’s turn. Look at his expression before stepping on to the court and after stepping off the court. (even Suga and Narita are intimidated)

Give a big applause for Kinoshita!  He has come far.

Ukai being a good coach (once again) by putting things into perspective for Kinoshita. (and I think it’s also worth mentioning that he remembers not only his team’s but also the opponent’s name and age?)

And it works!!

Another coaching moment from Ukai.

He’s blunt and straightforward, making it easy for Hinata to understand what is asked of him. As a result…

Hinata’s first successful stuff in the Nationals!

The surprised faces are hilarious, including Hinata’s own as noted by Kageyama. Hahahahahahaha.

Though Kageyama’s right. It’s a fluke, or likely a beginner’s luck since Hinata doesn’t manage to repeat his success. Osamu keeps getting past Hinata’s blocks.

While  Hinata has grown leaps and bounds, and has managed to block Ushiwaka in Tsukishima’s stead. His defensive ability is not as good as his offensive.

As fast as a learner Hinata is, experience still has the advantage over him, which Osamu has in excess. Not to mention Hinata simply sucks at battling at the net. It is Kindaichi who points it out. Truly, the training camp really makes the first-years close and know each other well.

I’m still surprised that Tsukishima doesn’t show any reaction/objection towards Hinata. His sarcastic remarks seem to lose his bite. These two have really become closer since the training camp.

Once a Miya, always a Miya. He is as capable of provocation as his twin. 

20-18, will the first set end in the next chapter? I’m not surprised if Karasuno lose the first one and get the second. They haven’t really hit their stride. Of all the spikers, only Asahi who consistently scores. They haven’t found a way to score, once they do, they’re likely to turn the tables.

BONUS:

Of course Tsukki is too cool to join the festivity. Or it won’t be Tsukki, I suppose :D

The Green Lady (Part 2)



Pairing: Hvitserk X Reader

Word Count: 2300

Warnings: You’re a fairy, its bound to get a little weird.

-Part 1- -Part 2-

Whats funny is while this series doesn’t have a lot of notes it got so many people excited and giving me advice for fairy shenanigans! Also someone needs to get on making Hvitserk gifs cause I think I already used all the viable ones for vague story context. So I just used one that inspired me instead.


He had thought he was done with you, that his life could go back to raiding and conquering. Instead you make your unexpected return as harrowing as possible, repaying him with a gift, but this gift comes with a price.


The troops had long since moved on from the haunted woods, Hvitserk’s tale of the strange woman with ivy antlers spooking everyone into thinking they would also end up kidnapped to some Otherworld where the dead whispered to you. The distance brought Hvitserk all kinds of peace, the only torment now was wondering about what other creatures hid in the land.

One of the slaves had finished braiding his hair and left, the curtain having just fell when an oh so familiar voice slithered behind his ear, shattering every last comfort he had. “She was cute. I think she liked you too.”

In a quick jump from his bed he was standing with a blade in hand, aimed at your throat. Glancing to it you smiled smugly to hide how the nearing tip burned under your skin and intimidated you. In your favor Hvitserk looked like he might puke to see you again, a little tell he’d been thinking about you often, and you didn’t exactly take that in the wrong way you should have, instead reminiscing how you hadn’t stopped thinking about him either. The handle twisted in his palm, itching to draw closer before you did. “What are you doing here? I did what you asked, you are suppose to leave me alone!”

You took in a long hiss of breath, leaning back and getting comfortable on his bed. “Perhaps my friends were making fun of me, saying I was too distracted to ‘garden’ properly. Perhaps I’d grown rather attached to you in our short time together.”

The knife wavered, dipping in strength as he pulled back with a confused grimace. “Excuse me?”

My Spirit Keeping Workbook

Since I enjoy working on my grimoire so much, I decided to make a spirit keeping/companionship workbook to help me stay on track with my companions! Here are a couple of the pages I’ve done so far, along with some explanations of each:

*Note* A lot of the information in here is NOT my own, it is helpful information I compiled from other while doing my research on spirit companionship. I can’t remember exactly where off the top of my head, but if you want me to link the original posts, just message me! Some of the information has been blurred for the privacy of my companions and myself.

This is just a basic info page! I love the little ghosties in the background. I’ve included a basic summary of what spirit keeping is, the benefits, and different types of manifestations.

ScriptShrink doesn’t heal.

The Shrink knows a lot about psychology. I’ve finished my first year of grad school, and I have been deemed qualified to do face-to-face therapy (under the supervision of a senior therapist) in my internship this fall. 

But I never answer real life asks. And I never will. 

These are just some of the reasons why I don’t:

  1. In order for me to legally practice therapy and receive money for it, I need to have a license.

  2. In order to do therapy over the internet, I would have to be licensed not just in my current location, but also whatever state / country the person I’m giving advice to is in. This is difficult to do and very expensive to maintain.

  3. A lot of information is lost when communication is only over text. Without being able to see someone’s body language and hear their voice, a lot of meaning is lost. There’s a high chance I could misinterpret the situation.

  4. If there’s an emergency situation, I would not be able to get someone the help they need in time. 

  5. As a side note, if someone is not a licensed therapist, they aren’t legally bound by confidentiality agreements. Anything you tell this person could be used by them for whatever purpose they want - such as using your pain as inspiration for horror stories.

In conclusion, it would be highly irresponsible and even illegal for me to claim to be able to heal you. So I won’t.

I can help you fix your stories though.

Reborn looked down at the scene in front of him. It hadn’t changed. There were still two heads instead of one in his son’s bed. Yu was curled around a smaller black haired boy, both sound asleep and unaware of Reborn’s presence.


Leaving Leon on the side table, Reborn turned around and went to hunt down his husband.


Predictably, Tsuna was still locked up in his office, grumbling at the paperwork.


“Your son,” Reborn drawled, “Is taking after your bad habits.”


Tsuna’s gaze shot up. “What is that supposed to mean?” he demanded. “What has Yu done now? And -” he looked at the clock, frowning at the time, “-shouldn’t he be asleep? Wait, did I not wish him goodnight?” Tsuna panicked.


“He knew you were busy, that we’re both busy and he, according to the maids, didn’t want to bother us and went straight to bed without any fuss,” Reborn said. “But clearly he had an ulterior motive, given that he snuck in a stray.”


“A pet?” Tsuna asked, confused.


“No, a human,” Reborn said. “He’s curled around another kid.”


“He kidnapped someone?” Tsuna blurted out. “He’s only eight! He’s too young to kidnap someone!”


“I don’t see the other kid protesting,” Reborn said.


“This isn’t something to be amuse about, Reborn!”

Hi! I have an art blog with like 1,000+ followers, then I hit art block for a while and now every time I post a drawing it gets like 12 notes max?? Do you have any suggestions on how to improve interactions with followers/ gain a following?? I feel like my art's improving but it's getting no attention and it makes me feel poo :^( Sorry if this is a weird question!

hi! it’s not a weird question at all!

gaining a following on here, or anywhere for that matter, i think requires both a lot of patience and luck.

for me i started gaining a lot of followers after this golden retriever drawing i did got super popular. and the reason it blew up could be because just the right people with a lot of followers found and reblogged it, or it was a good drawing and really struck a nerve with people, or both! i didn’t do anything different for that post to get popular over my other ones, but for some reason that was the one that did it!

but there are some things that i know will help with this stuff and i’m going to put it under a readmore because it’s a lot!

some DA:I tinhatting

So is it just me, or is there a suspicious similarity between the surface-dwarven story of Fairel, Paragon of Paragons, and the interwoven story of Fen’Harel, aka Solas? The first inscription about Fairel says “from pride these halls were made,” which pings with the fact that “solas” literally means “pride” - as does the similarity between the names Fairel and Fen’Harel. 

Like. All through Inquisition, it feels like we’re getting little hints that the various creation stories of the different groups in Thedas, but especially the elves, dwarves and the chantry, are really one story being told in different ways, in fragments that have corroded in the absence of a whole. So you get the similarities between the Golden City and Arlathan, which may well be the same place - and then there’s Fairel’s ruins, which are meant to predate the Blight. 

When you go into the first ruin, there’s demons bound into the stone there, with notes from the Venatori wondering how the dwarves did it, and that makes a contrast with the dwarven expression about death meaning “returning to the Stone,” which is also how Fairel’s end is described. And given the whole thing about the Titans, with lyrium as their blood/bones and red lyrium meaning they’re infected with the Blight, that makes me wonder if the “Stone” as the dwarves understand it in the sense of a place to return to isn’t somehow another concept of Arlathan/the Golden City/the place before the Veil, especially as demons are described as “stone-waste” in old dwarven. 

And just. The whole thing about the old gods I find very fascinating, because Mythal/Flemeth survives in a series of human bodies and Solas doesn’t actually *like* the elves, even though he ostensibly is one, and all the old stories about the ancient gods of Tevinter etc, and Morrigan’s son having the soul of an old god and being able to hear the Titans - what if ALL those gods are a different people who just adopted and/or created the various peoples of Thedas after the fact? That would explain how Solas could be both Fen’Harel and Fairel, and why Flemeth has never bothered to try and appear elven.

(Also, sidebar: I totally understand why people get mad about Morrigan elfsplaining elven history to a Dalish Inquisitor, but I also feel like her obsession with elves is tied to the fact that she’s Flemeth’s daughter, and Flemeth is literally an elven goddess in a human body. Even if Morrigan never knew that, her whole identity and being are clearly shaped by her mother’s magic at a fundamental level, so I feel like she’s maybe inherited this nameless, urgent sense of elven kinship without ever knowing why until Mythal reveals herself.)

ANYWAY. Thoughts?
