Bonus question give me your abercrombie boy headcanons if you have any.

I really don’t have many because Maggie leaves so little to be desired but I just…I feel like Ronan and Gansey have kissed. Like I’m not sure how and I’m not sure when but I think it was something fairly lighthearted (I say fairly because Ronan is just so intense) that didn’t really go anywhere. Maybe Gansey did it for “science” because he knew he could trust Ronan and he wasn’t sure if his ferocious devotion to Ronan was just that or…something else? Gansey doesn’t really have the language for it. 

So maybe Gansey raps on Ronan’s door and requests formal permission to enter the Sanctum of Brooding, and sits down next to Ronan on the bed and announces his intentions. And Ronan hears him out with his usual dour furrowed brow but the muscles in his neck are tight and he, the roving Irish tough always raring for a fight, kind of wants to run away from this. Gansey of course asks for consent in the most warm and diplomatic fashion and so Ronan tugs off his headphones and says “Sure, whatever” with all the practiced disinterest in the world. So Gansey leans in but suddenly Ronan thumps his hand against Gansey’s sternum and points a threatening finger in his face. 

“We’re not telling Parrish shit about this.”

Gansey looks flustered, his academic concentration broken. “What? Obviously, of course.”

Ronan gives a sharp nod, then smooths Gansey’s shirt back into place and sits back patiently. Gansey squares his shoulders and moves towards Ronan again, then stops an inch from the mark.

“Ronan.”

“Oh my God. What.”

“You’re my best friend.”

Ronan summons up a disparaging retort, but thinks better of it. Gansey meant what he said, and Ronan can see that. It doesn’t matter if Adam and Noah are just as beloved to Gansey in their own ways, he still meant it. 

“You’re my best friend too, Gansey.” The statement comes out softer than Ronan intended, more real, so he adds, “Now stop dicking around like a prom night tease and get on with it. That or leave, I’ve got shit to do.”

Gansey leans in and kisses Ronan, not over-eagerly but properly, with closed eyes and parted lips and at least a few seconds of commitment. Ronan doesn’t move. To do so seems unsafe. He urges himself not to think too consciously about what is happening but soon finds he doesn’t need to . Dick Gansey the Third, the great taboo, the great do-no-touch-under-any-circumstances-or-ever-notice-in-that-way boy who sleeps in the room right next to Ronan….turns out to be not so terrifying after all. Ronan likes being kissed, and he trusts Gansey not to fuck him over before during or afterwards, but it’s not quite the same as liking being kissed by Gansey, and that realization gives him immense relief.

Gansey pulls away and touches his fingers to his lips, his brow furrowed in thought.

“Well?” Ronan says impatiently. “Listen, if you fall in love with me I’m gonna have to move out of state or something; I don’t need anyone holding me down-”

Gansey shakes his head, as if disregarding Ronan’s blustering. “No, no….I don’t think it was anything after all. Ronan?”

“Yeah.”

“I think I’m straight.”

He says it decisively but with enough tentative room that, if proven wrong in the future, he could add a footnote to the statement for clarification. Ronan rolls his eyes. 

“Shit Dick, I could have told you that one.”

“Well, yes, but with these things-”

“It’s good to check, I know. Now get out, I’m busy.”

“Sure, sure,” Gansey muses, his mind already moving to another set of hypothesis. He reaches out and squeezes Ronan’s wrist companionably. “Thanks, man.”

Ronan notices that the secure pressure on his wrist somehow means more to him than a kiss.

“Anytime. Or not, that might be kinda gay…”

Gansey punches Ronan on the shoulder and scoffs in a way that lets Ronan know that Gansey knows but that he entirely willing to wait until Ronan admits it to himself. Ronan waits until Gansey leaves to let himself smile, making a satisfied noise in his throat about catching the attention, if only fleeting, of Mr. Perfect. 

It’s then he hears the disembodied laughter coming from his rafters. Ronan climbs to his feet on the bed in a rage and shouts at the ceiling,

“Fuck you Noah!”

im watching dear evan hansen and Alana posting the ‘suicide note’ even though evan told her not is really fucking awful.  What Evan did was awdul too but Alana was still really bad about the connor project.  Shedidnt care about connor until he died and her excuse of understanding how he felt was bullshit.. she took advantage of his death and caused the murphy family to be harassed by people they didnt even know, people who didnt know the whole story.

People who don’t care about fatphobia and are always talking about how being fat even in the slightest is awful for your health really be like “I’m just worried about fat people’s health! That’s why I think they should be punished physically, emotionally and socioeconomically for being fat. :)”

Like you spend so much time talking about how much you care about us and just wants us to be healthy and ok but at the same time you don’t even bother seeing us as people. You don’t ever do anything about fat people being bullied, you don’t care about doctors who refuse to give us proper medical attention unless we become skinny, you don’t see anything wrong with fat people jokes… And then you go “Gosh, I’m just so worried about your well-being!”

Come on, just admit you actually want us to lose weight because you think looking at us while we’re fat is not aesthetically pleasant…

Feeling so awful nowadays AND very busy, don’t really wanna be on tumblr and not even SHEITH could help, but this blog needs me, and you, all sheith shippers and VLD fandom, I always hope you’ll overcome your problems and always have a great day!

Some part of this fandom is shitty sometimes (or always?) but don’t be discouraged! Fandom meant to be a fun place and people who says otherwise aren’t even worth your time. At all.

Sorry for blabbering lol but like I always say: have a great day for all of you! You all deserve to be happy and loved! Stay strong! You can do it!

Guys I’m doing an illustration project based on childhood memories so I’m listening to my favorite childhood album Hannah Montana 2/ meet Miley Cyrus to put me in the nostalgic shmood while I work and it’s bringing back so many memories it’s like cringe but also really heartwarming aw

Yo I know you probably get alot of people coming in saying "I like you art!" or something like that. But I also want to say that I really love your art style. Like it's somewhat realistic but still has that cartoon aspect to it and that's why I love it so much. Also I love dragons. Hope you have a nice day Kyler! :3

Awe, thank you! I could never get a really cartoonish style because I wanted realistic features, but I also hated trying to make every single picture realistic. So I mashed the two together!

I was havin a chuckle at all the really awful facial animation issues with Mass Effect Andromeda before I realized that the majority of the gaming community was blaming it on “SJW”s for wanting a more inclusive game with varying beauty standards????? 

I’m not even into the franchise but y’all gotta realize that this isn’t an attempt at being inclusive to satisfy ‘feminists’. You just want somebody to blame because their character models look like poopoo.

if it makes anyone feel better, i used to be a hard core exclusionist, but the second they all turned on me and flooded my askbox with messages calling bi/trans me a "cishet" because i said A Nice Thing about asexuals at all, i realized it's better to be aligned with the side that wants to support and accept people. That, and 90% of their blogs are just plain bullying and harassment these days. It's gross.

An interesting story! I’m sorry that happened to you, my dude. :(

It really sucks how awful the discourse can get at times.

Analysis | Spiders could theoretically eat every human on Earth in one year
There's an insane amount of spiders on this planet, according to new research, and they're all hungry.
By https://www.facebook.com/chrisingraham

It’s been a while since I posted, but I thought I’d share this moderately creepy factoid via the Washington Post: 

Or, for a slightly more disturbing comparison: The total biomass of all adult humans on Earth is estimated to be 287 million tons. Even if you tack on another 70 million-ish tons to account for the weight of kids, it’s still not equal to the total amount of food eaten by spiders in a given year, exceeding the total weight of humanity.

In other words, spiders could eat all of us and still be hungry.

This comes from research by Martin Nyffeler and Klaus Birkhofer recently published in the journal Nature.

Of course, this really shouldn’t be scary: it is simply a really awe-inspiring measure of how much influence humble spiders have on our biosphere when their eating habits as a whole are taken into account.  Spiders aren’t in the business of eating people, though I guess you could worry that they might decide on a change of diet.

Personally, though, I found the estimate to be oddly reassuring, considering how screwed up the world is politically these days, thanks to humans. In other words, when I read, “Spiders could eat all the humans in a year and still be hungry,” my response was:

Within the batfamily, why do you think it's easier for everyone to accept Dick as the favorite compared to others like Tim or Damian? Is it partly because they know Dick is the only one who really confronts Bruce when he's being awful as well as take up the burdens Bruce is gone?

I think it’s easier because 1) Dick is the first by a long shot, he was full grown by the time Jason came into the picture. That means that everyone is literally following in his footsteps and it’s pretty hard to feel like a favorite when Dick has been doing everything twice as long which leads to 2) Dick is pretty much everyone’s favorite. It’s hard to accuse of Bruce liking Dick best when… they all like Dick best. He’s the golden boy, everyone’s big brother. Smart and strong and kind and ridiculous. They all have their issues but you know in all their hearts, Dick is their favorite sibling.

I really did hate for what whoever was running Cartoon Network did, Replace Catherine Cavadini, Tara Strong and E.G. Daily with young actresses that they can use just to promote the show and sell toys! It's really makes me sick to my stomach! Just…. Why?

I know anon, I’m still pretty disheartened about the decision myself, even after all this time. Just remember that it was a business decision: a crummy one, but strictly a decision made by someone who, unfortunately, probably wasn’t aware of the tradition that voice actors typically continue voicing their characters if they’re well known (or if they WERE aware… okay, no, I just wanna imagine that they weren’t :,D). It still feels really awful that the ladies weren’t able to have the same opportunity as many men in their field have had, but… again, it was a decision based on business, not on art (or on tradition). It doesn’t make it any less disappointing, but it does make it understandable in a way.
