this is as much for me as it is for anyone else

Podcast Recs

I was already making this for @dauphinedolphin (whom I’ve successfully dragged into podcast hell alongside me) so I figured I would just post it here for anyone else who might be interested! 

Note: these are just the podcasts that I’m interested in. Not everyone will enjoy them and there are many many MANY more out there that I haven’t listened to yet that are absolutely amazing. I’ve only been listening to podcasts since about October, so I haven’t listened to many yet. Also I have a significant preference towards audio dramas because I find them easier to focus on. 

All these shows can be listened to for free on iTunes. 

* = personal fave 

The Bridge******** - I literally cannot recommend The Bridge enough. It is INCREDIBLE. They excel at everything from sound editing to incredible writing to incredible voice actors and I just love it. so. fucking. much. It’s so good. And you should go listen to it right now. It’s about the crew of Watchtower 10 out on the Transcontinental Bridge, which spans the length of the Atlantic Ocean. It features spooky stories, eldritch monsters, a possessed doll and my favourite character of all time, so it’s basically the best. I’ll probably be making a separate recommendation post for it soon because there’s too much to say. 

Welcome to Night Vale - I know, I know, Night Vale Presents podcasts are on every single list and everyone’s sick of hearing about them, but seriously folks. They’re popular because they’re good. If you haven’t heard of Welcome to Night Vale before, it’s a radio show set in the fictional town of Night Vale where all sorts of weird stuff happens. 

The Orbiting Human Circus (Of the Air)* - The only other Night Vale Presents podcast that I’m gonna put on here. It follows Julian, a janitor at the Eiffel Tower who dreams of becoming a famous radio host. 

Wolf 359*** - This show. This fucking show. It’s so good y’all. If you like shows that start off kind of funny and not-so-serious before doing a complete 180 and becoming the most HEART-WRENCHING ANGST EVER then you will love it. Also kudos to them for having the best team of antagonists ever. It’s all about Doug Eiffel, the Communications Officer onboard the Hephaestus Station who finds mysterious radio signals out in deep space. But not everything is what it seems, nor is anyone who they seem… 

Wooden Overcoats - It’s all about rival funeral home directors on the small British island of Piffling. It has a lot of dark humour so if that’s your jam you should totally check it out. 

The Bright Sessions** - This is another show that’s just… so amazing. It’s about this group of humans called atypicals, who are basically superheroes (only they don’t fight crime and they have to hide their abilities from the general public). The show follows a time traveller, an empath, and a mind reader, with more atypicals popping up as the show progresses. It’s another one of those shows that gets darker as it goes, but the plot’s very character driven so you also get a TON of great character development. 

EOS 10* - Apparently the best way to describe this is “Scrubs in space”? But yeah, it’s basically a hospital drama set on the space station EOS 10. The main lead’s a recovering addict and that part of his backstory’s never ignored or glossed over, which is amazing. Also it’s my #1 feel good show sooooo…. 

The Deep Vault* - It’s the end of the world and a group of four people seek asylum in an underground vault created to help humanity survive the apocalypse. But is it really as safe as they thought? 

Archive 81 - Made by the same people who did The Deep Vault. Daniel Powell has a new job working as an archivist at Archive 81. The tapes he listens to seem to be telling a story that he’s not sure he wants to hear but knows he has to. Season two’s a little weird but season one really holds up. 

The Once and Future Nerd** - Three kids from Pennsylvania end up in a fantasy world and soon get caught up in the conspiracies and dangers that are threatening to pull it apart. This one’s got a lot of really great social commentary, particularly of fantasy tropes. 

The Strange Case of Starship Iris* - Violet Liu is the sole survivor of a shuttle explosion, but her ship is going down fast. She’s going to need whatever help she can get to make it out of this alive. Featuring the best alien you will ever meet, government conspiracies, and cases of mistaken identity that might just get you killed. 

The Far Meridian - This one’s pretty new but it’s already shaping up to be absolutely amazing. It’s all about a woman named Peri who wakes up to find that her lighthouse has mysteriously moved locations. Peri’s also agoraphobic but it’s never treated like something weird or used as a joke, which is sooo refreshing to hear. 

Bonus non-fiction podcasts: 

The Podcast History Of Our World - Exactly what it says on the tin. Each episode examines a different part of history, with the end goal of studying every single part of history. Currently somewhere in the Roman Republic.

My Brother, My Brother, And Me - Yeah so I’m slowly being dragged into McElroy brother hell… This is another one that makes basically every single list (or at least one McElroy podcast does) but for good reason. It’s really really good and really really funny. The McElroys run an advice show but their advice is not meant to be taken seriously. In fact, you really shouldn’t take their advice. 

Does anyone else hope that...

it will be revealed that Mona and Cece were just stand ins (that it wasn’t their idea to stalk and bully the girls?) for the A or A.D. whose behind all of it?! All seven fucking seasons! It just makes more sense to me that there be an Uber A who has made Mona and Cece do the things they have done. (Not saying that Mona doesn’t have mental health issues or that Cece isn’t super mean.) 

BECAUSE I do. Very much so. 

And now I’m looking at you,” he said, “and you’re asking me if I still want you, as if I could stop loving you. As if I would want to give up the thing that makes me stronger than anything else ever has. I never dared give much of myself to anyone before – bits of myself to the Lightwoods, to Isabelle and Alec, but it took years to do it – but, Clary, since the first time I saw you, I have belonged to you completely. I still do. If you want me.”

How did you become a Fannibal?

I shamefully avoided Hannibal entirely until the end of the second season, because I’m a big horror fan and remakes of iconic horror franchises tend to be… not so fresh. Eventually I succumbed and watched and episode on the recommendation of a trusted friend, and I was hooked. I ate up the first two seasons in a matter of days, and took to Tumblr to see if anyone else loved this weird, wonderful show as much as I did. Turns out, they did. And I never looked back.

What do you love about the Hannibal fandom?

Everything. I love the creativity, and the fact that it encouraged me to pursue new creative endeavors. I love the enthusiasm, and the generosity, and the impeccable sense of humor that runs throughout. But mostly, I love that it really is like a family to me.

When I arrived in New York last year knowing no one, the community here made a place for me. I’ve made friends in this fandom that I can no longer imagine life without, and I’m doing things I never imagined I would do. It’s beautiful.

How would you like to spend a day with Will Graham?

If I were a good friend, I’d hold an intervention for him… But in reality, we’d probably sit around drinking whisky, eating ice cream, and gossiping about what Hannibal is like in bed. Maybe we’d get drunk and I’d sketch him nude, who can say?

Thank you so, so much. 💖

I’m so ready to be wanted before anyone else. I want to be someone who she goes to to talk about her day and not just to talk about a girl wants to be with. I want someone to love with their whole heart and isn’t afraid to choose me every day. Feeling alone is such a heavy feeling. Not even a sad feeling, but it just weighs so much. I wanna run away and start over. I wanna just go and not stop because the longer I just fucking sit the heavier this feeling gets.

hey, this is a positivity post for trans women and their body hair decisions.

trans women who shave are great. you are not betraying womankind or feminism or anything by shaving. you are great.

trans women who don’t shave are great. you are allowed to not shave and it doesn’t change how much of a woman you are. you are great.

trans women have the same right to making decisions about their body hair as  cis women and it’s not fair to place higher standards on them than on anyone else.

Ok question, is autism something you're supposed to mention at the doctor's when they ask about any other conditions you have? I'm never sure if they only mean physical conditions (ei. Previous surgeries, medical conditions that could cause complications, or other stuff)

I don’t know about anyone else, but I think it’s important to mention it. I do it because it’s something that can affect many other parts of me (sensory processes, reactions to medications, co-morbidity of other physical ailments, etc.), among other reasons. A doctor should be aware of everything that’s going on in your body, and your brain is very much an important part of your body!

I'm pretty sure my only friend is starting to dislike me because of how much I talk about my ex. He ended it and I'm still in love with him. I've admitted to myself and him that he was emotionally abusive and didn't treat me right half the time but I still want him back after 4 months. I don't hold anything he did against him. How can you stop being a fool for someone? I don't want anyone else other than him but he doesn't want me. I can't get over him. Help ☹️

Baby, don’t you dare coming back to him. Stick to your friends. Now you feel badly but love, you can’t make a living out of the people who treat you like shit. You need to talk to your friend about this problem…
the one thing i know is that you cannot come back to him.

I’m feeling utterly bamboozled by what happened last night. I went out with my friend Hayley from work and met some of her ex-colleagues from when she worked at Sub Club and back to this flat in the west end after Berkeley Suite finished. The girl’s flat was gorgeous and had this wooden mezzanine nest with loads of cushions and blankets in the bedroom and for some reason or another I ended up spending most of the party in it. There was a boy there that I talked to for ages, I don’t know what it was but I felt more drawn to him than anyone else and I think he felt something similarly probably? I didn’t know if it was a romantic thing so I just went cutting about and letting my feelings confuse me for a while. Someone had sunglasses that he took and put on and it struck me all of a sudden how much he resembled Jamie, save for the black hair and the eyes. I kept looking at him and couldn’t believe it. At least that answered why I was drawn to him in the first place and I wish that hasn’t been the case but it was. He was even a few years younger than me in the same way he is which made the whole thing even more weirder. Long story short we ended up kissing in that mezzanine which was also a headfuck because it has been a very long time since I’ve let anybody near me in that respect and now I was cuddling up to a boy I’d known for five hours and letting him run his fingers down my arm. Up close to him he looked more like Jamie than ever and not only that but he also felt like Jamie and I tried so hard not to indulge in the stupid fantasy. I also wasn’t very sober at this point so things could have been exacerbated due to that but still. I talked so much shite to him as well by prattling on about my holidays and my dog but I don’t think he minded. He implied he wanted l see me again but I’ll cross that bridge if I ever get to it. I feel quite fuzzy and nice today even if I don’t know how I feel about him/the Jamie resemblance so idk, probably just play it all by ear if I need to.

I'm not all that plugged in to the fandom besides your blog, so it's always interesting to hear about the "fanon" versions of the characters. Like I've NEVER thought of kirishima as being hurt by Bakugou. To me he even seems to get a kick out of the way baku is? So like if he ever (for some reason because like you said I can't see it being intentional????) attempted to/did something to hurt kiri I would expect kirishima to genuinely laugh it off and be like "yeah whatever blasty" yknow?

Well, depends on how close to home Bakugou would hit with the attempt to hurt I guess? The only instance of Bakugou being “rude” to Kirishima in the manga that I can remember (do correct me if I’m wrong here) is him calling Kirishima “shitty hair”, and Kirishima set him straight on that immediately -  “my hair isn’t all that different from yours and I happen to have a name, use it”, so for sure that’s at least one canon way in which he reacts to Bakugou’s general level of every day rudeness

Laughing it off is also something he’s done in canon, though it was more Kirishima making fun of him and Bakugou telling him that he’d kill him and Kirishima ignoring him and keeping on laughing - so if it’s just riling each other up and normal bantering and poking at each other, laughter is a canon reaction too

But like, Kirishima’s got his insecurites and problems, right? And there are things he probably wouldn’t be okay with Bakugou saying - like, for example, not that Bakugou would, like this is the most ooc thing I’ve ever had Bakugou do in an hypotetical scenario ever (sorry son), but say he makes fun of Kirishima’s quirk/calls him weak, Kirishima would actually be hurt by that, you know? Even though he’d instantly know that Bakugou doesn’t actually believe what he’s saying, I don’t think he’d just laugh that one off. Cause those are actual things Kirishima thinks about himself, and at the moment what keeps those thoughts at bay are Bakugou’s reassurances about his strenght, so having Bakugou himself telling him that he’s weak would be a low blow for him… in that situation I think he’d tell him to go cool off somewhere he can be a dick by himself and maybe come back when he’s ready to have a civil conversation about what’s actually making him act up

Anyway Kirishima being quietly hurt and pretending everything’s fine is just something I can’t see happening considering how loud he is about his opinion whenever someone does anything that goes against his moral code, really

Do You Know That Feeling

When you always set your achievements as the lowest bar anyone else is allowed to clear, because everyone is so much better than you. Not because your Bad, but because everyone is Great™. But it turns out that, your achievements can match or exceed theirs because your Pretty Great Too™.

Its sort of confusing and I have been encountering it more and more as some of the blogs I follow (who have been at this for longer than I) reveal that they have fewer followers than I, who have been at this for little less than two months. Thanks for that by the way.

Then this happened:

500 Followers… half a thousand people are following me…

My first thought was

I really should have set up the Poll before I reached this point

But my second thought was:

HOW!?!?!?, how the fuck do I have more followers than those older blogs

After my brain rebooted, I came up with the conclusion that:

a) a large chunk of them probably followed @classpect-weaponry here (Thanks by the way) and the rest came to see what all the fuss is about and

b) I assumed that ‘older is better’ because my Older Brother has always basically been better than me, mostly because he works harder. So I assumed that true of everyone born before the 2000s (Tr/ump works hard in his slacking off and his ruination of the States, probably)

My personal issues aside, I really should have set up that poll by now, but ah well. I’ll probably put it up soon, so expect that to come out soon. Thanks for dealing with me for all this time!


She paused the game and looked down at me. 
“What-” I started to say, but she cut me off as she reached down and kissed me. 
“I love you.”
“I love you.”

I meant it, when I said it to her I felt every bit of me mean it.
When I was around her, I felt like there’d never be anyone else I’d ever love as much as her. I know we both felt like our love wasn’t enough, and maybe it wasn’t. Right now though, right now I was feeling so incredibly happy. 
Until those thoughts came barging in.
I couldn’t let myself feel this happy while Kali wasn’t. 
I looked away in frustration.
I didn’t deserve this. I didn’t deserve either of them.

“What’s wrong?” I heard the worry in her voice. 
“Nothing. I’m, I’m just thinking too much.”
I was a horrible liar, well I probably wasn’t. The thing was, I hated lying to her, I knew she could sense it too, but she never forced me to say anything I didn’t want to.
I felt her hand softly run through my hair and I closed my eyes. 
Whenever I had a bad day, or needed to fall apart, there was nowhere safer and more comforting than right here in her lap. 
“Here, play alone. I’m sure I’m only dragging you down.”
“No, I don’t want to yet.”
She laughed softly, “I take it you’re enjoying this?”
I nodded and she continued combing through my hair. 

anonymous asked:

i don't know why but recently i've been very interested as to where specifically B is from since i love him so much, and i dedicated this night to investigate. around a year ago, i discovered either on ur blog or somewhere else that some ppl think he is hispanic of some sort? so i kind of wanted to do some digging as to what specific country/ies he could be from but i don't really know what to do. so imma just drop this here and see if u or anyone else has any ideas? i lov u& ur art btw❤️

Oh anon, alas, I wish I knew!! The only real info outside of the LABB book itself (and correct me if I’m wrong, guys) is B’s confirmed death in a sidenote of Volume 13 so…. everything else is just happy headcanon and speculation. 

This is semi-awful (?) but a good majority of the fandom (myself included, as my life goal throughout most of middle/high school was to become a cop/criminal profiler lmaooo I was a fool…….. see silence of the lambs once as an eight year old and you’re convinced you’re going to be an FBI agent smh) is and has consistently been interested in true crime and I’ve seen a good number of people draw potential visual similarities between Beyond and Richard Ramirez, what with the cheekbones/hair/etc. I’m not in the “serial killer” fandom by any means and I find it absolutely revolting when people glorify the actions of somebody who raped/murdered & ruined the lives of not only their victims but the loved ones of those they hurt; however I can understand and appreciate the aesthetic comparisons. Their double initials: BB and RR, the fact that the killings took place in California, Ramirez was charged with 13 counts of murder and died of B-cell Lymphoma (lol), etc etc… anyway, as far as I’m aware of, that’s where the speculation of his ethnicity derives from too (?????). But I really only follow one, maybe two, B-centric blogs soooo… I’m not the most up-to-date person on this topic lol. If any other bloggers have info to contribute please comment on this or hit up my inbox??

(PS. Love you too, thank you for the message dear!!! xoxoxo Lots of hugs!)
