A Quiet Meeting Part I

In which Mezato and Takenaka are magnets for trouble even when they’re not trying to be bc noir always makes me think of gosho aoyama’s universe.

AoS Appreciation Post:

This is an appreciation post for all of the amazing AoS tumblr contributers.

I just wanted to say a big thank you to all of you for sharing these amazing pieces of yourselves with us. Whether you write a lot or a little, now or previously, thank you. If you make videos or images of our favourite guys, thank you. If you make theories and predictions that we ponder and squabble over, thank you.

You guys get me through the hiatus and keep me sane when they are throwing us plot twists left, right and centre. You make me think deeply about the motives, feelings and goals of the characters and I love that (yes angsty fics, I’m looking at you).

I read so much of your amazing works and whilst I always try to like, give kudos, comment and reblog, I really just wanted to say a massive thank you to all of you. Sometimes, just seeing your content makes my day!

hey, First things first: I love your blog! it has helped me a lot in writing over the years ❤️ With the story I am writing at the moment I have fallen in love with the main character and the general idea so I wanna writ it out properly but I cannot think about a proper conflict to bring the story forward. Do you have any texts to read to figure out a good conflict for a protagonist? It would help me a lot Thank you


I’m so glad you’ve found the blog to be helpful! :) <3

The best way to figure out a plot for a plot-less character is to ask yourself these questions:

1) What does my character want more than anything?

2) How do they plan to get this thing?

3) What happens that changes everything? How does their goal change as a result? How does their motivation change?

4) What’s their plan for moving forward?

5) How does this thing cause additional obstacles to be thrown into their path?

6) How do they tackle each obstacle? 

7) Do they ultimately get what they wanted?


If you have trouble thinking of the big “life changing” thing that could happen, consider what’s the best and worst thing that could happen to your character. The answers will provide some possible “inciting incidents” to get your story off on its path. Read my post How to Give Your Story a Purpose for more. :) <3

BTS (or any KPOP band for that matter) saying that they have to lose weight and that they are fat always makes me think "If you think you are fat then what will you think of me?" even though I'm not fat. I am chubby and I can lose a few pounds while still remaining in the normal BMI range (My BMI is currently 20) so sometimes it motivates me to lose weight. But sometimes it ends up making me feel shitty.

skdlsmfk this is making me angry your motivation to lose weight shouldn’t be the words of your bias that’s not right. that’s one more reason why i get upset whenever they talk about weight because they influence a lot of people ;;

I’ve officially finished university, so I have lots of free time! I’m also lacking inspiration and motivation, so if anyone wants to commission me, I’d really appreciate it!

anonymous asked:

I'm training for nationals right now n this year it's just me and one other girl from my school going. In class my tc seems to be a lot harder on the other girl than me. It makes me feel like she thinks I don't have the potential to do well but the other girl does so she pushes her way harder, it's hurting my confidence a lot. I don't really want to talk to my tc about it. Do you have any tips on what to do to get over this?

Hey Anon,

The best piece of advice I can give you is to take a step back from the situation and look at it from the bigger picture. After being through a similar situation where a dancer monopolized a lot of studio time during class with a less than cordial attitude, I took a step back (after a nice vent session to my mother) and realized a few things. While I don’t know all the details of your situation and the factors contributing to it, I can tell you what I realized about my own situation that may be applicable to you. Here’s what I came to realize:

Try not to take things too personally. Since we don’t know the other dancer’s situation, it’s possible that she may not have the intestinal fortitude to push herself. Your teacher might be pushing her harder because that dancer lacks confidence or motivation to push past her comfort zone. That being said, try to look at this from a positive angle. Use this as an opportunity to rise to the occasion and push yourself with your own goals. 

Take the opportunity to show you’re prepared and mean serious business. Before the Oireachtas, the dancer in my own situation was monopolizing a LOT of time. While I was aggravated for a time, I decided that it wasn’t worth the stress and planned my own “plan of attack.” I just plugged in my bluetooth headphones and ran through my own dances around the other girl. Personally, this worked out well because my teacher approves of this as it’s good practices for other dancers to learn how to move and focus on their own steps. Keep in mind that your teacher may very well be watching while you are dancing.

Propose an approach that can work to both your advantage, as well as the other dancer. You could always ask your TC if you can take turns running through your solo rounds. While one dancer is running through all three or 2.5 steps of their dance, the other can catch their breath and take a second to recover. This gives you the chance to be watched individually, as well as prove to your TC that you’re willing to adapt. Like my dad always says, “adapt and overcome.”

Try to walk a mile in the other dancer’s shoes. Try to consider how the other dancer is feeling. She may feel like she’s getting picked on while you’re not getting pushed as hard in class. She may feel less confident than you because she may feel the TC thinks you’re already in a good place. Perception is everything when it comes to tense situations, so try to consider this may be something going through that dancer’s head.

And last, but certainly not least. Focus on yourself and don’t worry about everyone else. This is something my sister always says - and boy is it true. You can spend an exorbitant amount of energy on worrying about this, but it won’t necessarily do you any good. The best thing you can do is take a deep breath and check your frustration at the door of the studio. If you channel that energy into your own mental prep for the NAIDC, you’ll be doing more good for yourself than weighing yourself down with negative energy or feelings.

I really hoped that this helped. If you need someone to vent to, my chat is always open to you! I’ve been through my fair share of drama and frustration, so I’m always hear if you need someone to listen.😊

Just remember: Take a deep breath, zero in on yourself and kick some butt! 🙌🏼

Hey! I thought I should post an update since I haven’t really been keeping up with this blog whatsoever. Sorry about that. I need to at least follow more fish blogs and reblog more fish pictures.

Tycho and Spot are ok, but I haven’t had much motivation to maintain their plants or keep their tanks pretty lately, as seen in the above photo.

I am lazy and everything is overwhelming right now, including this. I promise that water changes and daily feedings are happening, but even those things are hard for me and my wife is helping me a lot, which I am so grateful for.

I can’t be bothered to change the light intensity or timing, and I am almost never adding ferts or flourish excel. Due to the relatively high light and lack of Excel, Spot’s tank (right) is completely overrun with algae and it is hideous. Tycho’s tank (left) has excess algae too, but it’s not completely out of control like Spot’s. I believe this is because Tycho’s tank has a larger ramshorn snail population, which is because Tycho is not good at eating his pellets, and the excess ramshorn snails are eating the algae. That’s my best guess, anyway, since the tanks are completely identical in size, light intensity and duration, and amount of plants. (This is also the reason for the generous layer of snail poop in Tycho’s tank. Just in case you were wondering about the poop disparity.)

No plants have died completely as far as I can tell, but most of them are pretty well coated in algae, many of the Amazon sword leaves look pretty sad, and the frogbit is surviving but not propagating. The java moss in particular looks absolutely strangled by all the algae.

I know I need to scrub the hell out of the algae, remove the driftwood and rocks etc. to thoroughly clean the algae off them, then do a large water change and probably repeat that a few more times, and start at least dosing Excel regularly again. I’ve been lazy and I find that all extremely overwhelming and it seems more impossible the worse it gets.

About Tycho being bad at eating his pellets - I think he is getting old. I have had him for about a year and a half, but I know pet store bettas are typically about a year old when you buy them, and their lifespan can be as low as 3 years total even with proper care. (Please let me know if I’m wrong about the lifespan.) He does eat a healthy amount of food, but it takes a lot of tries. He has slowly gotten more and more lethargic, and he usually won’t swim very far to get his pellets - I always pre-soak the pellets so they sink anyway, so he just waits for them to fall, and if they fall too far away from him he won’t swim for them, but even when they fall close he sometimes misses them and then can’t find them once they fall on the ground. I do the best I can to siphon them out with a turkey baster, but sometimes they fall in hard-to-reach places, and sometimes if they fall under or behind something I just straight up can’t find them, so I definitely don’t get them all out. And if we’re being 100% honest here, some days I don’t bother. Some days I am like fuck it, the snails will eat it. But most of the time I at least try.

I aim to do small water changes once a week, but more often it’s medium water changes every two weeks, and sometimes large water changes after 3. I do check the water parameters occasionally, and they are always 0 ammonia and nitrite, and 10-20 ppm nitrate maximum right before a water change. I know that nitrate could stand to be a little lower, but I don’t think it’s high enough to actually make Tycho sick. As far as I can tell, he isn’t showing any signs of illness other than lethargy, which is why I think he is just old.

Spot is 100% healthy and very fit - he zooms all around his tank all the time. He is my first short-finned betta, and it’s fun to see how active he is. I think at some point in the future I would like to upgrade him to a bigger tank, since he would definitely use all the swimming space. Maybe I should abandon the goldfish idea and put him in the 55 gallon instead, lol. I just said lol, but now that I think about it I might actually consider it.

Speaking of the supposed future goldfish tank, I have been 100% neglecting it - fishless cycling was the idea, but it’s been literal months since I have added ammonia, tested, or done a water change on that tank. People come over and are like “where are the fish” and I’m like um…. yeah……. about that.

tl;dr: I am a lazy piece of shit doing the bare minimum to care for my two bettas. Their tanks are ugly, the 55 gallon has zero fish, and the bettas are doing ok except that Tycho is an old man now.

Maybe this post will resonate with people. Maybe my honesty will be reassuring to other fishkeepers who are not perfect and fuck things up. Or maybe I will get called the fuck out for being a horrible fishkeeper who should never have pets ever, which would probably not be unfair. I would honestly appreciate an outside perspective on this, because I can’t tell which it is.

If anyone has any questions or feedback or advice, feel free to send an ask or message anytime. I don’t mind talking about personal shit if anyone wants to know, but I wanted to keep this post as free from excuses as possible.

Thanks for reading.

Quick breakfast for today ! Chocolate oats with almond milk ! And I am down at 76.1 kg ! I lost 400 gr! I was in a plateau for sooo long and 2 weeks ago I went to London for 4 days, ate healthy as f*** and walked between 10 to 20 km per day (and sometimes I had to push my mom in a wheelchair so it’s exercice I can tell !) and it helped a lot with the weight loss ! Later today I am gonna write about me and my weight loss story/journey so you can see where I am coming from. 😊

So LaTale is a pretty significant MMO for me. I made a lot of friends there, and learned a lot about the game, had a lot of fun. and maybe even learned things about life from the variety of people in the game.

One of the biggest things however, is that LaTale’s community motivated me to get into art more, and enjoy it too. The artists I met and resources i got from them helped set me on the path to actually learning how to draw. A path i plan to continue for my love of it.

While my art now may not be groundbreaking and can still arguably be considered beginner still… the limits of my art was once barely even stick figures and blobs. Compared to that, i never thought i’d even reach this point. So, I owe something to LaTale and all the friends i made from it. 

Here’s just a FRACTION of all the friends i met and got to know in my 8 or so years of playing before OGP shut down its servers. I wanted to add more but I cut the number down to get this on OGP’s forums before they shut down. To those who’s references i got and wasn’t able to add, I’m sorry, but i still plan to draw many of you over the next few weeks with less of a deadline.

Thanks all you guys. For making the game fun for me. <3

But now it’s like.. I never have fun with it, it’s like a painful chore I gotta do, and the worst thing is I have no A.C.

So my attitude

04.10.17 // hello!1!! first day back from spring break and it’s been pretty gud tbh. these are some pictures of a mind map i did for history and to help prep for a test :))

I did it again. Sigh. Can’t stop drawing him. ;u;

I’ve got a pretty cool AU/ Theory for Anti that goes along with this piece! Very proud of both, haha. Basically (and very shortly told); In my AU Jack is hallucinating himself being controlled by something and uses the ‘Anti’ persona as an excuse, to kind of blame someone for what bad stuff his mind is coming up with. Murder and all. At some point, I imagined what his head/ his dreams would look like in that scenario and - tada! This is what happened. :D

Obviously the theory is just a little plot idea I had. I know Jack is not actually a lunatic who goes on murder sprees, oml. I was just like; what if he really doesn’t want to believe that he could potentially become a murderer? Or maybe doesn’t want to believe that he already is one? And THEN blames a non existent character for the bad stuff he does? Craziness, haha! Gotta love them psycho-thrillers, amirite?

The theory isn’t meant to offend Jack or anyone else in any way! I hope you like it, though. I might draw some more stuff about it in the future. C:

Thanks to @therealjacksepticeye and @pixlpit for sTILL MOTIVATING AND INSPIRING ME SO MUCH URGH! I can’t wait for the amazing stuff those two will come up with in the following months! :D

Now I will go and get me a salad. A nice salad and some ice coffee. Nom.

Note; please don’t repost/ reupload my art! C:

Also, I suggest y’all go listen to ‘MISSIO’! Amazing musicians, way too underrated! I listened to them a lot while drawing this and bOI it is good!

Motivational Mango

Hello, I am Mango, birb of the internet, and I have heard that you have a sad. 

Did you know that I am professional sad fighter? It’s true! Mango will show you the way. When you has a sad, you may feel like doing this: 

As you can see, Mango has been there too. But I can offer you some solutions. 

Sometimes it can help to talk to a friend. It can be hard to reach out, but sometimes expressing how you feel and commiserating makes you feel less alone. Hiding in hair is optional. 

You can talk to friends online if that makes you more comfortable. Computer is also good for viewing birbs. Good for combating a sad.  

If you’re having a rough time, it’s ok to take a break and enjoy a favorite activity. Don’t feel guilty! We can’t be 100% work 100% of the time. You’re allowed to have fun! 

You could get some rest, take a walk, or fix yourself a favorite snack! Sometimes you need to treat yo self. You deserve it because you’re awesome. So remember to be good to you. 

You just take that sad and you give it this look to let it know you mean business: 

You examine this sad and tell it that it has no power here. Give it a real good look with your birb eye and remember that you are worth more than any momentary despair this sad could bring. Here, Mango show you how: 

If all else fails, Mango will get real puffy at the sad for you to ward it off. Sad has no room when Mango is poof. 

But of course the best cure for a sad is looking at pictures of birbs. 

Hang in there, birb! You’re gonna make it. 

She doesn’t like to be called babe because it’s sort of a lazy way of saying baby, she loved it when I called her by nicknames, babygirl, princess, tiger (because she wants to reincarnate into a tiger if she one day dies) beautiful, etc, she doesn’t like when others call her by her name, because she prefers “soph” but she loved it when I called her by her name and she sat there smiling at me for ages. Her favourite drinks are iced coffee, those frappe things from McDonald’s and rubicon (the mango one though) she loved coffee and I’ll never understand why. Shes insecure of her face and when You look at her too long she’ll cover it, she’s insecure of her body, though it’s perfect just the way it is to me, she’s insecure of her smile but I find it beautiful. No matter how many times I called her beautiful she didn’t once believe it because she believes she isn’t. No matter how many times I tried to prove to her she was beautiful she didn’t believe it. She’s insecure, she’s scared of being hurt, she’s scared of wasting time, she’s scared of putting her all into somebody to be left alone, her guard was up, even after I showed her the craziest amounts of love, because she’s afraid of letting people in and it’ll take her ages for her to be able to trust you and open up, the way she is stubborn drives me crazy because I want her to tell me what’s wrong but she won’t. She’s spend all night crying over me but has been happy for me the next day because whose wants to see a smile on my face, she will be emotional, she’ll cry, she’ll cry and lot, she won’t tell me she’s crying though because she’s scared to bring attention to herself. She gets jealous but only because she doesn’t want to see me with anybody else. She has days where all she wants to do is be alone and cry, there’s days she’ll have no motivation but all you need to do is try to be there for her regardless of how much she acts as though she doesn’t care because deep down she does and her pain is too much to explain so she’ll keep it in rather than tell me what’s wrong. She thinks she’s stupid and not intelligent (which I think and believe she is) and regardless of what i tell her she will never believe it, she always believes she isn’t enough but she is more than enough, I look at her and see my future, I look at her and it will physically hurts me because i know that she is worth much more yet she sticks around just for me, I think back to all the times I’ve hurt her and made her cry because of stupid arguments, I’ll look at her and my eyes will light up from the way her smile forms and the way her pupils dilate, the way she turns her head to the side so I won’t see her smiling or laughing. she never wants to see me upset, she may never say much but she knows, she wants to say things but her shyness takes over, she wants to be here for me but she will have no idea what to say, she will try her damn right hardest to be there for me and even though i don’t realise how much effort she puts in she will still carry on doing so. Even though I don’t thank her enough for making you happy she will still carry on doing so because she wants me to be happy. She never really speaks about what’s on her mind until i physically beg her to, she hates to talk of her past and her future and if I’m lucky she’ll tell me a story or two about her past, I need to pay attention because she hates to repeat herself, i need to reply to her like I’m interested or she’ll think i don’t care. She hates to talk of her future because it’s “depressing” because she doesn’t believe in herself but now is the part where i should interfere and motivate her to believe that everything she wants will be hers as long as she tries. She hates it when i give her “positivity rants” on the phone because it makes her overthink. She hates feeling like I’m not paying attention to her. She hates when I don’t realise everything you do for her. She hates feeling depressed and alone so i much bring as much happiness to her as possible, she hates knowing that I’m not okay. she loves sci-fi movies and that’s another thing I’ll never understand why she loves but when we’re married I’ll sit with her through 3 hour sci-fi movies because it’ll put a smile on her face and I’d do anything for that, She loves to mess and play with her hair, she is so downright passionate about photography and she loves relating to somebody, she loves when I know things about her, she loves having deep meaningful conversations, she sometimes stays up until stupid o clock to check up on me and to see if I’m okay or just to speak to me because she craves me and the feelings I give her. She stays up some nights doing things for me which I would never expect and some nights she will cry herself to sleep because I upset her or because im not okay. She loves to play fight and she loves it when I look into her eyes and she loves it when I lay in bed with her and just talk absolute shit. She loves long walks and pleasing sights, she loves going to pretty places, she loves the nights and one day she would love to travel the world with the love of her life, even though she’s never been an an airplane before but it’s fine because neither have I. she would love a long car journey to wherever as long as it’s with somebody she loves, she loves old music and she loves to make you happy. She loves wearing casual clothes and rarely ever wants to look “feminine” but I love it because its her character and who she is and she will never change that. She will make me happy even if I’m not making her happy because she loves me and will do anything to see a smile on my face. She doesn’t like going to busy places like concerts or crowds etc, she loves dogs and practically develops bonds with them, she dislikes her dog because she’s ‘boring’ but she still loves her and sees her as a sister, because she’s grown up with her. She is sometimes so full of life and so happy that its literally contagious, her smile makes me smile and her laugh is honestly the best sound ever, I see my future every time I look deeply into her eyes and i realise that she is worth so much more than me yet she sticks around, once she loved me she has not once stopped, ever since that day 3 years ago. Sometimes she will act heartless but only because she wants me to show her that I care, sometimes she’ll cry and not tell me because she wants me to figure it out. She doesn’t like to be around many people, she doesn’t want to go to college because she hates the whole school vibe but I respect her for that because going straight for a apprenticeship takes guts, she doesn’t have many friends and although people think they know her, I can assure you they don’t, she will make you feel as though you know her but you really don’t, even I don’t know/understand her to the full extent, because she doesn’t really let anybody in unless she really wants to tell them something, she doesn’t really open up to anybody, she may talk a lot on the phone sometimes but in real life it is the complete opposite because she will become shy. She loves her dads car because of it’s blacked out windows so people can’t see her. I’d describe her as mysterious and as every single day which goes on I carry on learning more about her. She is the book I’ve opened and I will carry on reading her till I am finished reading her which will be never because she is an endless story. She loves it when I hype her up when she looks beautiful when I replay, screenshot and reply with endless emojis because her beauty takes away my breath. Sometimes she’ll have an attitude because she’s upset about something and she wants me to figure it out. But her attitude is nothing to fuck with at all because she can talkkkkk I assure you, she will fight her opinion onto you and she will make her point, but she won’t say a word in person, regardless of the arguments and regardless of the heartlessness she will love me entirely and will carry on doing so and I will never question that. Her heart is made of gold and she will always want what is best for me. I’d keep on going because this isn’t everything about her, if I could, but quite honestly I’d be going on for hours, I could never lie, me and her have made the most happiest and craziest memories together, and I could never doubt that. If forever does not last for me and her and you’re the next person who falls in love with her, take this all in and realise what you’re getting yourself into. Treat her well because she is honestly a queen, you’ll learn to love her, but let me assure you something, you will never love her half as much as I do. But for now and hopefully till forever, she is mine and I will carry on loving her till the day I die.
