this is something very important to me

v important rant

this is something thats been irritating me so much for a while and i really wanna talk about it i also think its super important honestly so. we all know that dan wasn’t really in a good place in his life before he met phil and he’s been getting happier and happier especially lately, yes phil is definitely like a crucial part of dan’s development and has impacted dan’s life very positively, but i just have an issue with the fact that so many people in the phandom keep giving phil all the credit for dan’s wellbeing. like i see so much of “phil saved dan’s life” and “dan was depressed until he met phil” and like i just hate it because it glorifies the idea that you need someone else to conquer something as complex as depression. phil changed dan’s life thats a fact that dan keeps mentioning every chance he gets but dan was the one responsible for getting through all the shit he used to feel and the insecurities and self-doubt. even though dan wasn’t in a good place he still let phil in and managed to be able to succeed in youtube which was something so new to him and look how far they got together.

my point is, if you’re suffering something you’re the one who’s responsible for your achievements. if you notice your life getting better with somebody else’s presence, keep them closer than ever but also give yourself credit for not giving up and choosing to surround yourself with people who affect your life positively.

How do you know which question to post and answer? Cause I'm pretty sure you don't answer EVERY question sent to you. HOW DO YOU KNOW WHICH QUESTIONS ARE WORTHY!?!

Hahaha, you’re very right, I don’t answer every question sent to me ^_^; Or else I’d probably annoy quite a lot of folks who are mostly here to just read the comic!

I try to answer as many as I can, whenever appropriate and whenever relevant! Sometimes if something unique or unusual or something a lot of people have missed but is important has been pointed out, I’ll make it a priority to post/answer those. Just to point people in the right direction ;) Otherwise I like to answer a handful a day to not annoy people but to also keep the blog active between updates, fanart reblogs, and my silly drawings. It’s all about balance!

I know there are some comments that I want to refer to later on, and some that I want to organize and try to answer in bulk. I get a lot of awesome theories too, and I haven’t quite figured out a good system to post/answer those just yet (still considering the second blog idea!). However, a LOT of what’s in my inbox are questions/comments that I can’t answer, because giving any response (even a response like ‘that’s a spoiler’ or ‘I can’t answer that’ or ‘that’ll be answered later’) could be a potential spoiler. And I’m very secretive, haha, so I think it’d be best to just leave all of ya’ll in the dark about most things until you see for yourselves if your question was answered :P

Just know that if you don’t see your comment/question answered, I promise that I’ve seen it (I’m a very nosy potato) and if it’s plot related there’s a chance that maybe I’ll refer to it later. You never know~

I don’t love you

request:  Numbers 4,20,27 please with Damian? And congratulations 🎊!

4. “ I don’t love you anymore. ” 20: “ Please don’t hurt me like this. ”27: “ I wish i’d never met you. ”

word count: 391

SHIPS ARE OPEN

Please remember that physical description is not important. I’m not going to ship you based on your height or hair color. I honestly believe that shouldn’t be important in a relationship, at least not as important as personality. So what is the information I require? 

Here you have a list of things you must include:

  • Your personality
  • Your sexual orientation so that I know if you’d rather be shipped with a boy or a girl.
  • Your Hogwarts House
  • The era: marauders (M), golden trio (GT) or fantastic beasts (FB). If you don’t specify which era you want, I will choose only one. You are free to ask for the three eras if you wish.

Things you may include (not compulsory, but very helpful):

  • Things you like or dislike
  • Things you are good or bad at
  • Your aspirations
  • Something you are proud of
  • Your fears
  • Your Ilvermorny House
  • Your patronus
  • Anything else you believe it is important about you and that may be helpful for me to know in order to write a more accurate ship

Ships will probably remain open for a week.

That’s all! You can send me your ship requests now :)

thank you so much for never reblogging/posting any explicitly nsfw/yaoi yoi content. i can live without seeing anything that fetishizes vikturri or any mlm relationship

you’re welcome, i hear you. i can’t say i’ll never reblog any ns/fw yoi content because mlm having sex is natural and good - but i do try to be very careful and aware about any ns/fw content i do reblog for exactly that reason, and unfortunately a lot of content in this fandom does veer into language and portrayal that feels really… grossly voyeuristic to me. and i don’t endorse that whatsoever.

as i’m a bisexual woman, the concept that gay sex can be appreciated by anyone as something loving and normal is very important to me, and any fan content i do reblog that’s ns/fw will ideally reflect that in a very respectful manner. but i’m still very wary and suspect bc i’ve seen a lot of shit in this fandom lmao (and i’m also a wlw and not a mlm and therefore i’m not exempt from any gross content) and i’m suspicious and don’t want to contribute to any of it. 

so i do reblog minimum explicitly ns/fw content, definitely try to filter what i do reblog, and i will never reblog any y.aoi material whatsoever.

efnenu  asked:

Heyo, what's the most important thing you'd want to get out there about how self-driving cars (don't) work?

Hi efnenu, thanks for the ask! Well, I’m not particularly the person to “get stuff out there” about the topic, seeing as there are plenty of Actual Experts™ in the field who are better than me at explaining it, but I guess there are two main issues that seem vitally significant to me / are often misunderstood:

1. You cannot stop driving a self-driving car. I know, this doesn’t sound like it makes sense. But the thing is, there have been studies (which I unfortunately cannot link for y’all, because the ones I’ve read have not been published yet and the only reason I had access to them is because I edited their official translations from German into English) that reveal something very important: the period of time between the moment that the car sends out the alert “Help, this situation is too confusing for my computer brain, I need a human to take over!” and the moment that a human has to be able to stop whatever else they’re doing and respond to that alert is… really short. Like, only a few seconds.

But unfortunately, humans need a surprisingly long time to mentally switch gears from whatever else they may be doing – reading a magazine or switching to a new playlist or even just staring out the window – to understanding what the driving situation in that moment is, and what action needs to be taken IMMEDIATELY to avert a disaster. And those few seconds can be more than enough time to cause the death of others and/or the driver themselves. So basically, with the current level of technology, don’t expect to realistically be doing anything but paying attention to the road when you’re in the driver’s seat of a self-driving car.

2. Self-driving cars will eventually run into situations where there will be a casualty – possibly a death, or multiple deaths – no matter WHAT decision they make. It’s like the old philosophy Gedankenexperiment where a train is speeding towards a split track, and one young person is tied to the tracks in one direction, while two old people are tied to the tracks in the other direction. Which direction do you go if you can’t stop in time? Someone’s gonna die no matter what – you just have to decide who it’s gonna be. And it’s actually really creepy when you think about it (at least, to me it’s creepy) that the computer brain of the self-driving car has to be equipped to make that decision.

For the past few years, as this technology has been becoming more and more topical, committees of experts from all different fields (engineering, philosophy, law, ethics, etc.) have been meeting at international conferences in order to discuss exactly this issue: How should the computer decide who to kill? (Which of course actually means: how should WE decide who to kill? Because we humans are the ones writing that computer’s programming.)

It’s horrible, I know. But it’s necessary, because technology is not about to stop advancing, and apparently everyone wants self-driving cars. And, to be honest, humans have already been making those “Who shall I kill?” decisions – albeit on a much more instinctual, panicked, spur-of-the-moment basis – for decades already, whenever they were tragically forced into those situations.

It’s so fascinating to me, from a philosophical point of view, that we have come to the point in history where we see ourselves compelled to teach a computer how to kill us in a logical manner. It’s just… kind of awesome. In a gruesome way :)

Thank you so much for sending the question! I enjoyed writing this post more than I had expected. I guess I’m more interested in this topic than I realized, haha :D

Another preview of the short film I’m producing! Marinette is hasty until something awakens a curiosity …. What did it be?

At the moment I had to take a break (very long) in this project due to a super important work I received this week! I could not refuse the offer because it will help me a lot to get some money and support me. I also don’t know when I will return, but I promise it will be soon. There is little left to finish the main!

Wish me luck!

     1. wrath comes so easily to percival; much more so than forgiveness. the nightmares, the scars, the trembling in his hands- perhaps it will all go away when he faces the world with anger instead of fear. and it does. he pours the rage into fire and smoke, and in the blast forgets for just a moment what he’s left behind.

     2. she sometimes wishes she knew not what envy was. keyleth is gentle and doubting; few days go by where she is not quietly jealous of the twins’ confidence and charm, or the easy smiles and bravery of the gnomes. but a leader looks forward, not behind- so she raises her chin and walks, dreaming the whole time of who she should have been.

     3. too many years have passed for scanlan to know who he is without lust. part of him loves it- the pleasure, the freedom, the life that gave him his daughter. but he realises he doesn’t remember all their faces; the people he’s loved and left behind with second thoughts far too late, the mothers that might be and whom he cannot name. 

     4. greed sits with her far too often; at times a shadow, but more often a welcoming hand. it is everything the elven nobles who shunned them had and vex'ahlia did not. as it clinks into her hand, the glinting light of the gold is a wink that promises more than it gives. she smiles, and the metal hangs heavy at her hip. 

     5. he had never understood the word gluttony before. grog’s world before them was so much smaller, so much simpler. life now seemed limitless; and without limit what could one do except want to experience everything? he laughs, shouts, rages in the name of what he deserves- the world is his and his alone. 

     6. there is little that tempts pike more than sloth. each wound she seals with trembling hands, each rag stained with blood, each piece of her heart she begs sarenrae to drag back into this mortal coil; they whisper that it would be so much easier to never care. she receives yet another plea to bring back what has been lost, and hesitates.

     7. pride weaves its words like his blades weave death. even at the depths of his own darkness, vax'ildan finds confidence in who he is. he is spite, he is defiance, he is freedom, he is the plaything of a goddess. he controls his own destiny, even as the strings of fate pull ever tighter. the shadows gather, and he is home.

Post Ticket Sale Self-Care Masterlist

To all of those of you who have managed to purchase tickets: CONGRATULATIONS! I have so much happiness for you and your opportunity to see our boy in person. Now, it’s been an absolute emotional rollercoaster these past 24 hours, so please, please please please: TAKE CARE OF YOURSELF!!!

By all means, celebrate. Hoot and holler. Dance in your room in your underwear. Blast some Sign of the Times and air band the fuck outta the jam (I personally know the drum part like the back of my hand). Post to your Facebook about how thrilled you are. 

But afterwards, please give your body some time to relax and recuperate from all the adrenaline. Your body loves you and has held you together during this hell of a ride, and it’s time to care for it as well. Please scroll down to see a list of more self care tips and helpful websites. x

To all of you who did NOT get ahold of any tickets: I’m really, really, really, so very sorry, my love. It’s absolutely devastating to miss out on this opportunity, and you’re absolutely 100% validated in feeling angry, upset, or any other emotions that you need to feel right now. Please remember that your ability to see him live does not in any way affect your value as a person or a fan. It was a real ass-kicker, this one, and the chances were low for all of us. Our boy really loves us a lot, and that doesn’t change if you couldn’t buy a ticket. Please, please, PLEASE take care of yourself, my dear. Here are some tips and things you can do to care for yourself today:


  • Take a bubble bath. 
  • Go for a long drive.
  • Listen to music. Listen to something other than Harry, if you need to.
  • Call/talk to a friend.
  • Buy yourself a treat from the grocery store (or any store)!
  • Go see a movie.
  • Buy yourself that book that you’ve been wanting to read for a little while.
  • Light a candle.
  • Write. Write out all your feelings, every single thought, until you cannot write anymore. It helps to write it out physically so that it’s tangible. After you’ve written everything down, do whatever you need to do to rid yourself of it, whether it be burying it, crumpling it up and throwing it out, or giving it to someone you trust who is understanding and loves you.
  • Give a stranger a smile.
  • Go for a long walk.
  • Go to the gym.
  • DRINK SOME WATER. I MEAN IT. RIGHT NOW. BEFORE YOU KEEP READING.
  • Eat something, please.
  • Read your favorite fanfiction (again, if what you need is to distance yourself from H, might not be the best option)
  • DON’T FEEL GUILTY FROM NEEDING TO GIVE YOURSELF SOME DISTANCE. We all do sometimes, and your health comes before anything else. Log off of Tumblr, stop checking your Twitter for updates, maybe turn off your notifications. We will all be here when you return, but your health comes first.
  • Bake!
  • Treat yourself to a meal at your favorite restaurant.
  • Treat yourself to a meal at the cheapest restaurant. For me, there’s very little that a large fries from McDonald’s can’t fix.
  • Buy yourself something cute online.
  • Take a nap.
  • DANCE.
  • Reread your favorite book.
  • Watch your favorite movie.
  • Watch your favorite Netflix show.
  • Talk to someone. Anyone. If you don’t have anyone to talk to, my ask and messages are ALWAYS open.

anonymous asked:

If Harry uses hair ties, does he always lose them like the rest of us? And, do you think someone came up with the idea to just "accio hair ties" and is bombarded with years worth of Harry's missing hair ties?

I just had this image of Harry getting really stressful on work and a very brave young female auror asks “is everything alright sir?” And he just goes “i lost something” with a grumpy face. suddenly he sees it.
“Where did you find this hair tie?”
“Er… Why, Mr. Potter?”
“It’s pink”
“Sir? I’ve found it on the floor during training today. Sorry, but i don’t understand”
“Please leave.”

Later at home
“Gin, honey. So remember that lucky charm of yours”
“The symbol of our love that you decided to use during my important matches so you can send me good luck, yes I remember quite well. it was the most romantic thing you have ever done to me.”
“I lost it”
“Have you tried accio?”
“It’s not that simple.”
“How’s not that simple? It’s a hair tie”
“It’s with another… woman. Accidentally. But I will get it back, I just need a plan.”
“…”
“…”
“It’s ok sweetie, i trust you.”

Ginny never calls him “sweetie”.

Next morning someone enters his office. It’s Ginny. Harry jumps with a what the fuck omg it’s my wife, I’m dead again face. she wants to know if he got the hair tie back because that thing was really fucking important to her. The female auror appears on her sight. Ginny sees her old hair tie on that blonde hair.

Harry knows his wife very well.

“You won’t do this. Gin you shouldn’t be here- shit”

“Excuse me. Hi. I’m Ginn”
“Omg you’re Ginny Potter!! I’m such a fan! Would you mind signing my shirt?? And can I ask for an advice…”

Later that night at bed
“You’re right, it’s not that simple”
“I told you.”

and they discuss plans to get the hair tie back during all night harry can’t even concentrate to have sex and I’ve just written the first episode of How I Hexed Your Father, the name will be The One With The Hair Tie

anonymous asked:

Hi. I really like your drawings so I think you can help me. I draw myself and I've got one friend that shows me how to paint humans. But if she sees my pictures, she always laughs and says that they are funny. I don't feel really confident and her meaning means a lot to me, so I think my drawings are just "funny". First I were really proud of them, but then she always comes and laughs. What should I do? P.S. I'm sorry for bad english. I'm from germany.

Um. wow…

That’s how you DON’T teach someone how to draw.  The thing with criticism, an important thing you should listen to, is that first you should find the good things about something you’re up to criticise. 

Say there’s a very detailed colourful drawing but the anatomy is very, very bad. Maybe one leg is bigger than the other, maybe the eyes are different shape, BUT.

You say that, hey, I like your colours! (for example)! You found a good contrast harmony! You’ve put so many details into it! And only then you say (BUT IN A KIND POLITE WAY) what this person should fix. Tell them what is not the greatest about anatomy AND HOW fix it, say that hey! I love your details, but It’s better to first finish the general shape because details can distract from it. Or, if you criticise something first then at least say what’s good about it afterwards.

People who laugh at someone work, I feel like, have absolutely zero interest in your improvement or self-confidence. In my opinion, this kind of people just want to level up in their own eyes by bringing someone down. We all know just how destroying those kind of laughs can be to people who put so much into their work. 

You’ve put your time, your imagination, your sincerity into something that means a lot to you and this itself isn’t funny at all! Your friend should at least respect your effort, because not everyone is born immediately great and have to work their way up.

I’d say don’t listen to your friend and keep being proud of your drawings! And I think you should be proud! Don’t let anyone bring you down like this.

I’m a new dm for a group of relatively new players, running a short campaign ‘cause I wanted to try my hand at dming and they wanted to play. 

Long story short, the players have to convince the ghost of an ancient king to give them the password to open a secret vault and get the treasure as they were hired to do. I’ve decided to play the king, Caul, as a semi-genocidal and extremely lonely old man who doesn’t want the conversation to end. I’d been having fun distracting them talking about skee ball, murder, and Caul’s beautiful wife whom he loved very much, but they finally got out of him some important info. 

Ollie, the party warlock: So, you’re waiting for the “chosen ones,” and you’ll tell them the password? 

Caul: Yes, that’s right. Oh, I’ve been down here for so LONG, you have no IDEA- 

Ollie, OOC: Can I just, like, convince him we’re the chosen ones? 

Me, OOC: Sure, roll persuasion.  

I was going to make something that obvious a tough roll, as this conversation was meant to be akin to a boss fight in difficulty. I figured they’d have to get a 20 to successfully convince him with just one roll. I wanted them to test their roleplaying capabilities and have a little fun with it instead, and Ollie hadn’t rolled above a 10 all evening so I wasn’t worried. 

Ollie: *rolls 19, +3 to get 22* HAHA 

Me, OOC: Oh shit, okay. Um, so what do you say?

Ollie, OOC: I convince him we’re the chosen ones?

Me, OOC: Yeah, but how? What do you say to convince him? 

Ollie, after much deliberation: We are the chosen ones. 

Caul: Wow, I suddenly believe you, I guess. 

By rewatching The Blade of Marmora for the billionth time, I finally came to terms with something that had been bothering me since VLD season two dropped on Netflix.

Take a look at this broken, shattered little thing. His father just gave him an ultimatum: “If you go out that door, you’ll never find out who you are.” 

The one above is the moment right after, when Keith decides that saving the life of many is more important than knowing the truth about his past, more important than having a talk with his father, more important than seeing his mom – probably for the very first time.

That’s the look he gave him, the “I’m sorry, I have no other choice” look. He said: “Goodbye, father,” but did not shed a tear, and that’s what I’ve finally come to terms with.

His eyes are full of sadness and yet so firm; it looks like he’s about to cry, but he doesn’t. Why is that? Because he’s one hell of a person, a great paladin, and would make an even greater leader, that’s why [read this too for further analysis]. 

He must stay strong. He can’t crumble. Not now.

He put himself last and gave up on the sole occasion he had to discover who he really is, pushing aside the horror of the nightmares he had been experiencing for days. He was probably close to his limit, but for the sake of others – strangers, to be precise –, he opened that friggin’ door. Crying? Maybe later.

He’ll never know who he really is, he’ll never know what that blade means to him [“I know who I am. We all need to work together to defeat Zarkon. If that means I give up this knife, fine. Take it,” he then said, handing the blade over to the Galras], he’ll never meet his mom and Shiro had just abandoned him, saying the worst things to him, but Keith still went: “I have to go, there’s people who need me out there.” 

Y’all should seriously reconsider the idea of Keith as the worst leader for Voltron, ‘cause he’s been able to put himself last in order to do what was right. I’m still enraged we didn’t get a proper aftermath (join my ranting here), but now that Shiro is gone again, I guess it will be hard not to fall into pieces. As of now, nobody knows what Keith’s been through out there.

【170620 Non-no magazine】SUGA’S PARTS

SUGA’s answers

Q1: Hobbies or things you’ve been into to spend your days off? 
A1: When I have days off, I want to do those so-called ‘ordinary’ things. Such as going to a cafe by myself, meeting up with friends. Having an ordinary daily life is very important to me. I won’t do anything special just because I’m on my days off. For me, spending my days off while relaxing is more important.

Q2: Tell us your preferences and tastes in fashion! 
A2: Rather than getting different types of clothes, I’m the type that if I like or love something, I’ll use it for a long time. Since debut, because of my job, I’ve been wearing a lot of expensive clothes and clothes that I like. But I want to become one that can have their own style even when wearing simple clothes, so now I just choose simple clothes. Also, I don’t like to expose so I wear long sleeves even in the summer. 

Q3: Your favorite scent?
A3: For cologne, I like sweet scents. Depending on my mood on that day, occasionally I’ll use a bit. But I haven’t finished using one bottle yet. Since I really like to drink coffee, it makes me feel calm when I smell the aroma of coffee. To me, coffee is like a substitute of water, it’s indispensable.

Q4: Any Japanese film, drama, manga or other works that you like?
A4: My all-time favorite manga is ‘Slam Dunk’! It’s my favorite so I read it over again and again, I’ve read it for over 100 times. Most of the anime that I’ve watched when I was little, are Japanese anime.

SUGA is…

From JIN: He’s interested in clothes, furnitures and miscellaneous goods, but when he’s shopping, he’ll only buy equipment that’s related to music. As his roommate, only I know about this, it’s my treasured information. ♪

From V: Recently, Suga hyung is really interested in Japanese. I’ve seen him studying Japanese diligently. Also, I feel that the things Suga hyung talks about and the atmosphere became more interesting than before (laughs).

「MUSIC」

Encountered rap around when I was in primary school and began to get involved in making music. I’m still active and continuing to produce music. For someone boring like me, the only thing I can do is to make music, it can’t be separated from me.   

「POSSIBILITY」

In the past I would look for answers either 0 or 100. For example, why do some people don’t like me? I worried about these things and I also showed my emotions on my face. But after I’ve accumulated a various of experiences, I could understand better about people’s sensitivity and values. I thought “people could have various of thoughts”, and I began to think that I want to open every possibility for myself.

「GRANDPA」

It’s a word that describes me (laughs). Since I rarely step forward (voluntarily), I’m discreet, quiet and I like to be alone. I don’t like to move around and I like to lie down.

Hi! I had the absolute pleasure of receiving critiques from Efrain Farias and Hans Tseng when I saw them at Fanime a couple weeks ago! Showing them this old piece, I asked for tips on composition/lighting since larger illustrations are not at all my forte and they very graciously gave me invaluable advice to grow on. I’ve retouched the illustration since speaking with them and did my best to adjust the colors and make the focus closer to the center using some subtle shapes (also, but not as important: added some little pigeons). The new image is above and the old, from Sept 2016, is below.

I still have a long way to go, but I believe I can make something out of myself! Thank you!!
