This is one of the first pictures I took out on the porch of the Germaine House when Iann was just getting started on the renovations. He was at the back of the house working on something and I had showed up and announced myself by sending this picture. Also I think it’s just a nice snapshot to remember that we took the time to bring the house back to ‘life’ after so long.
Picture of Best Friend
Iann being a smart ass in all his glory. This is what happens when you go out to lunch together and he gets a salad. I’m pretty certain he did this mostly to embarrass me. that or he doesn’t know how to eat salad properly. He’s still my best friend regardless.
Picture of Significant People
It’s hard to imagine my life now without these next two people. They are my family after all. The first one is Lilo when those rune eggs we found in the house bombarded the nursery with more baby clothes and toys than we could ever possibly need. It took a while to get them all moved out and down to the local donation shop, and when we were taking a break Lilo decided to have some fun with it. I snapped the picture because it was too perfect to miss.
The next picture is one of the first times I brought Addie out to The Grove and the Germaine House. She seems really, really happy and comfortable out there. Much wasn’t going on that day, I had just come out for some fresh air and to keep Rags company. He was really excited to see the baby and brought over some flowers that had grown behind the house. I was showing one of them to Addie and she reached up and took it. I know it looks like she’s sniffing the flower, but she tried to put it in her mouth like five seconds later.
i know that some gross male dudebro is going to mansplain star trek to me at some point in my life, and at that moment i will cut him off with a theatrical “oh, the sound of male ego. you travel halfway across the galaxy, and it’s still the same song.”
this is an excellent response for 3 reasons.
1. The quote is actually from star trek, so if he doesn’t get the reference, it means it’s likely that I know more about the show than he does.
2. If he does get the reference, he’ll have to eat his fucking words
3. if he doesn’t get the reference, he will assume you have been halfway across the galaxy and are therefore an alien. and of course it is always good to have at least one person convinced you are an alien.
Me,every day during summer:
I'll meet my friends every day, go out, workout, learn new hobbies, meet new people, eat healthy, sleep enough, don't spend to much time in front of my computer, start living life at its best
Also me, every day during summer:
*counting down days until hiatus ends, while making tumblr edits and rewatching all seasons of my shows*
“dude i know youre a werewolf and all but seriously that freaking howl laughter you do is so fucking extra and i cant take it anymore”
“you being part dog has its perks, mostly for me because whenever i toss something away your eyes follow it and you perk up like you want to chase it but restrict yourself and its honestly the cutest fucking thing ive ever seen”
“honestly though i hate my pack so much, like theyre a bunch of assholes but i ran into you on a full moon run in the forest and idk u seem pretty cool. wanna go hunting or scare some people or some shit? i know this sick ass lake thats always really warm, i can show you”
“yes i understand im a big bad werewolf now but really i dont want to hurt those cute little rabbits and deer, cant we just wait until we transform back to eat? thats not how it works? well cant i just eat before i transform so i wont be hungry–im sorry im just new at this and im sorta trying to go vegetarian here–”
“babe you know i love you and i would give up my life for yours but i sWEAR TO GOD IF YOU GIVE ME ONE MORE DOG TOY FOR MY BIRTHDAY IM GONNA PUNCH YOU SQUARE IN THE FACE”
“look im not a supernatural fanatic or anything but i swear man every time this kid next to me gets frustrated they actually growl and it sounds just like some rabid steroid induced dog, and im not saying their a werewolf man but theyre totally a werewolf”
a werewolf getting personally offended when someone says they’re not a dog person
“as a werewolf i can personally talk to dogs and boyohboy does ur little pug have some tea to spill…"
“alternatively, i find you to be really superduper adorable and whenever i come over your little dog goes off on rants to me about the cute embarrassing stuff that you do when your home alone and honestly I wake up every day for these chats”
“when I saw you climbing out of the stream I was fishing in dirty, wet, and naked, I assumed you had just survived some kind of intense mob hit or something but really you had just detransformed from a werewolf after you were playing in the water trying to catch a fish, and ultimately failing. nice ass, by the way.”
I LOVE THEIR FRIENDSHIP! They’re brotp goals, prepare for trouble and make it double, everything they do together is my favorite thing they do but let’s see:
1. Tanaka crying over Nishinoya’s bruises. This is always the first scene that comes to my mind when I think about them, mostly because I relate to Tanaka on a spiritual level. Nishinoya actually makes Tanaka cry over how badass and selfless that he is. Plus notice that here Tanaka calls him Noya-san, despite being not only from the same year, but being his best friend too. He respects him…so much. I cry too every time
2. Every time Tanaka lifts Nishinoya up. I adore the fact that they’re so physical and affectionate with each other. Out of all the boys, they’re the two that hug, touch and lean on the most. Plus this thing where Noya let’s Tanaka do all kind of things with his body gives me life. And the lifting thing is for sure my favorite one.
3. When they almost killed Tsukishima after his insane block. They have a thing for harassing him in general, but here they were just the most proud. Noya and Tanaka were the first of the team to go cheer on him after he did what’s probably the most iconic block of the Haikyuu history. And this shows that they do are the greatest dork that the world has ever seen, but they are the most supportive teammates ever too, always there and ready to acknowledge every single good thing and picking them up when they’re down. They just…show their affection in their own way, sometimes hitting, sometimes eating people alive too
4. Their special cheering dance. Precious both in anime and in real life
Dear mom, thank you. For being there every second of my childhood life. You took care of me when I couldn’t take care of myself. My tomorrow always starts with you. Your smile becomes a morning habit to me. Thank you for having patience with me when I didn’t want to eat the food you cooked just because it has vegetables or whenever I pretend sleeping at noontime. I’m sorry ifI love to play all day. Thank you for lending your arms whenever I cry at midnight, I always find solace in between them. Your voice melts my worrying, and it becomes a lullaby to me. Thank you for teaching me how to walk on my own, you showed me how a little sunshine could do wonders in this world. I have enjoyed my childhood life because of you.
Dear mom, thank you. For being my life’s greatest teacher. You have colored my days with your guidance, affection, care and attention. Thank you for teaching me how to write, count and read. Thank you for comforting me on my first day in school. For the provisions, I needed in life. I know, we are not rich, but you always make a way just to ensure I’d have a bright future. You prepared my better days, and I’d be forever grateful with that. Thank you for disciplining me the right way and teaching me how to become a better person.
Dear mom, thank you. For everything. For being my provider, teacher, friend, protector and my home. You will always have the biggest place in my heart. Thank you for teaching me how to become confident and independent. Thank you for always wiping my tears and calming all of my fears. Thank you for introducing our Lord God in my life. For all of the countless times, you were there to become a friend and become my shelter whenever there’s a storm. Thank you for caring me whenever I’m sick. For making me feel safe every time. Thank you for believing first in me and guiding me on every decision I make in life. I wouldn’t be here where I am in my life without you.
I know, these words will never be enough to thank you for every sacrifice you have done for me. But give me this moment to say this: Mom, I’m rapturously in love with you. I don’t say it as often, but I love you, and I will always be grateful to have you. My life is in the better place because of you. Your love is the reason why I’m strong, inspired and successful. Thank you for letting me walk on my journey. Don’t worry. I will always be your little child. I will always stay with you, through whatever and whenever.
I love you more than you’ll ever know. You are the greatest; you are my everything. And I will always see you in every wonderful experience that will happen to me.
With an artist like Prince, all you wanted to do was know more. And that mystery – it’s why those people are so magical! Like, fuck, I don’t know what Prince eats for breakfast. That mystery … it’s just what I like. More than ‘do you keep a mystery alive?’ – it’s not that. I like to separate my personal life and work. It helps, I think, for me to compartmentalize. It’s not about trying to make my career longer, like I’m trying to be this 'mysterious character,’ because I’m not. When I go home, I feel like the same person I was at school. You can’t expect to keep that if you show everything. There’s the work and the personal stuff, and going between the two is my favorite shit. It’s amazing to me.
Is gay representation in anime good or bad? “Usually it’s great,” said the panelists of “That’s Gay! LGBT Representation in Anime,” a wife and wife team. “However, it can be pretty mixed.”
There is, and has always been, a lot more LGBT content in anime than there is in American media, but this isn’t as progressive as it sounds, explained panelist Judith Fisch. However, a lot of these LGBT anime characters fall into some tiresome tropes. Gay men can be portrayed as feminine and predatory. Gay women are considered to be going through “a phase.” And don’t get started on trans characters, who are often added purely for comedy.
Furthermore, gay representation is subtler than it would be in America. For examples, Japanese viewers of Yuri!!! On Ice perceived “Please be my coach forever,” as a marriage proposal. Meanwhile, American viewers didn’t see this as overtly as its creators intended. Blink and you’ll miss it!
The panel discussed problematic LGBT representations in anime before settling on some progressive modern recommendations. Here are a few to check out:
What Did You Eat Yesterday? A slice of life manga about a gay couple’s daily routine with a focus on what they cook and eat. Shiro and Kenji experience daily microaggressions and navigate life in modern Tokyo as gay men.
Yuri!!! on Ice. The panelists noted that this show aired in the middle of the night because it was perceived as almost too progressive.
Yuri Kuma Arashi. By the creator of Revolutionary Girl Utena, this artistic show plays with the stereotypes of “predatory” and “pure” lesbians—with literal bears and lilies.
Sasameki Koto. The straightforward story of a lesbian in high school who is closeted and another who is out. It’s a love story with a happy ending.
Wandering Son. A sympathetic story about a trans boy and a trans girl who become friends as they begin to come of age.
Comic that makes absoluty no sense but I finished anyways /o/
Watermelon game is a clasic game showed in series where the characters guide another to hit the watermelon and then eat it. I wanted to show Todoroki’s and Momo’s lack of social knowledge (Or commoners games) by having them fight over a watermelon lmao.
Used refs for the action scenes since I can’t do it for the life of me.
But imagine the rating they’re gonna get if they get both Alycia Debnam-Carey and Katie McGrath in a show together. It can be the stupidest, most non-sense show about two roommates going about their daily lives, picking up laundry, eating ramen from a cup, chilling on the couch and it’ll still be the best rating show in history. Heck, they don’t even have to hire directors or crew members. Just fix some cameras in the room, put those two in and let them do whatever they feel like and I’d still watch that show like my life depends on it
