this was such a pretty still though

strangers

Based off of this headcanon by @dark-chestnut 


Remus had made it his habit to drop by the same spot in London every now and then in the last year. It had taken a lot of self convincing to gather up the courage to go see the boy who lived, it had taken him almost 5 years to be exact. Even though he knew where the Dursleys lived he couldn’t find it in him to knock on the door and see Harry, he was pretty sure Petunia would have shut him off without blinking but he was still angry with himself for not trying. He owed it James, he owed it to Lily to be there for Harry but he didn’t deserve being around Harry nor did Harry need someone like Remus in his life.

This had been going on for a few months now, Remus would drop by the old building close to the Dursley household and watch the messy haired small boy wait for his uncle. When he had first seen him, he had to sit down to the closest bench he could find. When he was a baby, they joked about how he looked like James but he was so small there was no way of telling it but this boy, with the exception of his green eyes, was for sure James Potter’s son. Even his hair was sticking out the same way his father’s did and Remus thought this was his punishment for running away from Harry for so long. Every time he saw the little boy, he felt the familiar stab in his heart reminding him that the only thing he had left of the Potters was this small boy who looked so painfully like his father with a scar on his head.

More often than not, Vernon would be late making Harry wait. He would sit on the sidewalks staring at the cars passing by until one of his teachers would come out to take him inside. Remus felt like even though the small boy knew his uncle wasn’t coming, he always had the hope that someday he would so he kept going out just to be taken back in. It made Remus a bit happy to know that after all he had been through, he was still capable of hoping. But this time, the boy walked out of the building and started walking away from the school and where his uncle was supposed to get him from. 

Remus panicked first but then started following the small boy, he knew how this looked from the outside with his shabby coat and scars but he couldn’t live if something were to happen to him. So he kept the distance just enough so he could see where he was going. Harry stopped by a empty children’s park and sat down one of the swings with his head bowed down. So this was how it looked like when someone lost their hope and trust in someone. Remus slowly checked the surroundings and making sure that no one was around he slowly walked and stood by the other swing next to Harry.

“Mind if I sit down?”

Harry shrugged his shoulders and shook his head slightly before he looked up at Remus. It was like looking into the eyes of Lily, Remus wondered if Harry knew he had her eyes. 

“Are you alright?” asked Remus softly.

“No.”

“Wanna talk about it?”

“I’m not allowed to talk to strangers.”

Strangers.

Remus knew Harry didn’t know who he was but knowing that he was there the day he was born and the day he started walking hurt Remus so much. He could have been Uncle Moony but he was just a stranger now to this beautiful boy. Sirius had taken so much from him but Remus never thought about the relationship he could have had with Harry until the past few months. Sirius had stolen everything from Remus including Harry. He was just a stranger now. A stranger who almost fainted the first time he held him because he was so scared of hurting something so pure and so perfect. A stranger who baby sat him so many times but not enough, played with him for hours on end. A stranger who used to make him laugh but it didn’t matter anymore. Nothing mattered anymore and Remus knew this was a stupid idea. 

“You should go home before it gets dark,” he muttered before he got up and started shuffling his huge scarf to hide the fresh scar on his neck. He turned away with a nod and started walking away. 

“I like your scars,” shouted Harry making Remus turn abruptly. “It’s okay to have scars, you know. I have one, too.” 

Harry pushed his hair up to reveal his famous scar. He was smiling slightly as he jumped off the swing and started walking the other way. Remus didn’t know how to feel. He felt angry because there he was, a man with nothing to lose, beating himself up everyday because nothing was going to change and reminding himself that he deserved everything he got and there was this little boy, who had been through a lot himself and having every reason to hate the life he was living but he was still trying to make sure a person he defined as a stranger knew it was okay to be different. He felt hatred towards Sirius like he had never in his life before for taking this beautiful boy away form him but the strongest feeling he had was guilt. He hadn’t fought hard enough, he hadn’t tried hard enough to make sure Harry didn’t suffer anymore and he deserved to be a stranger to him because he hadn’t given his all to make sure he wasn’t. 

Remus pulled his coat tighter around him as the autumn breeze made him shiver, he hid in the first corner he could find and apparated as far away as possible from Surrey. When his feet landed on the ground he found himself in the last place he wanted to be.

anonymous asked:

Why do trolls gain wings upon reaching God Tier?, Are God Tiers effected by what the culture of the player's species think a God would be like, like some Fanons claim?, if so, is the change entirely cosmetic or can it grant other abilities?, like say, if a species picture of a God almost invariably involve them being able to breath fire would that species' God Tier Players beable to breathe fire as well?

its stated to be they have wings because thats what a Troll’s cultural Ideal looks like, with some trolls being lucky enough naturally to have that culturally desired mutation without god tiering like Summoner and Rufioh

Its pretty much on a similar beat for how most (western society) humans would consider a societal cultural ideal for what a human should strive to be being “Pretty, Fit and Able”

and we already know what you look like upon god tiering is tied into what you think your ideal self would look like, what you consider your best still trumps what society thinks is best though

For instance Terezi valuing her blindness as part of her ideal self, but Tavros not valuing the loss of his legs as seen in their dream versions of themselves, as well as our two Blood players, Karkat and Kankri, never being seen with wings upon god tier either in any doomed timeline, likely because neither of their self ideals fully embraces their cultural ideals either, both being inherently outside of troll caste society as mutant candybloods (as well the obvious more thematic ties being Blood/Breath and Grounded/Flight)

so the Trolls who have wings upon god tier, its like a baseline similar to how most humans would think Beauty, Fitness and Ability are part of what their ideal self would contain, because that’s what human society values, so I’d imagine most humans god tiering would imagine themselves as being more pretty, fit or able upon reaching god tier, but only if that was truly how they viewed themselves as truly being

there are always exceptions to this of course, if you consider any part of yourself to be intrinsic to the kind of person you are, then you’ll keep it, regardless if it fits into the cultural ideal, because it is YOUR ideal that matters

its just that for 99% of people, their ideal is the cultural ideal because thats just how society works

so as for your questions about other species and other cultural ideals, I would say its similar to what we’ve already seen. It depends on how strongly the species as a whole adheres to that ideal, stronger adherence means higher likeliness random individuals will also carry that ideal

other species, I’m thinking specifically Caliborn/Cherubs here as well, may find their individual self ideals greatly trump their species or cultural ideals. As LE being wingless and hugely buff seems to line up with what Caliborn would want, as well as being a product of his immaturity as stated in canon. His ideal lacking wings, which adult cherubs have, means Caliborn sees himself as fundamentally a child still, which he does, but hes also a big huge super buff man cherub. It honestly all seems to line up with Caliborn’s childlike fantasy of what he wanted to be

I don’t know if there’s a limit to what the changes could be, since physical changes of all kinds are indeed possible, even things like Jade’s Dog ears for a human are possible through other circumstances

and its not the species picture of a god, its what their ideal species member looks like, the perfect man/woman/whatever gender roles they have, which is usually decided by culture, but absolutely can be decided individually and usually just happens to inform what their religious figures look like 

Humans Gods are supernaturally pretty and fit and able most of the time, Trolls religious figures likely all have Wings and Perfectly shaped Horns, another societal ideal we know trolls tend to have, but a perfect instance where individual ideals seems to trump cultural ideals, as most trolls would consider their unique horn shape and sign an inherent core of their identity

so for this random species, if 99% percent of members considered strongly that an ideal member of their society has the ability to breathe fire upon, then 99% of players will achieve that ability to breathe fire when they god tier, with 1% either rejecting that ideal for themselves or being lucky enough to have it naturally before god tiering

so basically, at the core the mechanic itself works from your self ideal, its just that what your self ideal is can be very much informed and influenced by a lot of factors, most often being the cultural and societal ideals you find yourself surrounded in since birth, even within the same species as guaranteed Western Society and say, Chinese society, do not match up with cultural ideals 100%, there are going to be differences and those differences will effect a person in some way

a few makeup tips!

maybe you’re trans, maybe you’re just new to makeup for other reasons, maybe you just wanna know some good makeup sources. well, no matter what the reason, i’m here to help with a few entry-level makeup tips!

  • drug store makeup is not inherently bad. yes, a lot of the cheap stuff is comparatively low-quality, but some of it is quite good! i especially recommend wet n wild for matte lipstick–they have some really excellent matte lippies for like, three bucks a tube, tops. the only bummer is that the casing is kinda shoddy, though, so losing lids is a very real risk. still, they’re worth checking out. they also make some pretty nice eyeshadow palettes! 
  • gel eyeliner is my personal favorite liner style–it’s way easier to apply than liquid liner, and way more precise than stick liner. it can run comparatively pricey (in comparison to liquid and stick, that is), but it’s one of those cases where i’d say the extra few bucks is worth it, especially since a little bit of it goes a long way. (if you lose your brush, i’ve found that thin cheapo paintbrushes–unused otherwise, of course–work pretty well!)
  • while ulta sells a lot of high-end fancy expensive makeup, they also have a lot of more affordable stuff, much of it quite good! i have a few eyeshadow palettes by makeup revolution that i got there–lots of very nice eyeshadow (plus a mirror!), and those palettes generally run under 20 bucks. so if you want a wide variety of eyeshadows, that’s a good one to look at. they also sell stuff by nyx, which is fairly affordable and pretty high-quality as a rule!
  • sales are your friend. it’s not unheard of to be able to find high-end makeup for a lot cheaper during sales–i got an urban decay lipstick for 10 bucks (they’re normally 20) during a macy’s sale!
  • the absolute best time to get large quantities of affordable makeup is around christmas–generally any time between november and january. it’s very easy to find gift sets, both at drug stores and dedicated makeup stores, that will save you a lot of money and often last you a long time!
  • makeup tutorials are pretty easy to find, both on youtube (if you’re able to follow video tutorials–i’m not, personally, but i know a lot of people can) and tumblr, as well as other websites! 
  • take care not to use certain makeups past the expiration date (generally the packaging will tell you how long you can keep the makeup before needing to toss it). this is especially vital with mascara–i’ve heard horror stories there.

if anyone else has stuff they wanna add, please feel free!

I’m bored so here’s some general tv production stuff. I’ve been wanting to post these concepts in a meta but decided to give them mostly their own post.

We’ll round the ratio for the hourly screentime to 1 even though most network TV dramas are 42 minutes. Producers of tv networks usually like a lot of coverage and shot variety so there’s more control and they can adjust timing. When I took film/tv production classes in 2012 or so, I was taught that networks budget about 18-20 hours of footage to 1 hour(rounded) of screen time. Looking around now, that seems to still be about right from what I could find. If anything, it might be more footage because pretty much everyone uses digital now and digital is cheaper than film by a lot. I’ve heard of 40:1 but I don’t think that’s normal. It is a thing though.

Typical projected filming with actors is about 12-16 hours a day for tv. I don’t know what the schedule is for all tv, but SPN apparently films for 8 or so days an episode. 

Below are the 6 cardinal rules of editing and how much each one is supposed to matter in the cutting room. These were taught to me in school using the book: In the Blink of an Eye by Walter Murch. The first 3 are pretty obvious, the last 3 are more technical:

BTS reaction: accusing you of using them in a fight

Thank you for requesting! xx


Jin/Kim Seokjin: 

He’d be pretty upset with himself for saying those words. But, I’m pretty sure he’d still be a tiny bit riled up from the fight, so he’d probably be annoyed at you for not acting like an adult and just solve this. He’d bite his tongue though, as he knows saying that would only upset you more. He’d probably just place one of his hands on yours, quietly telling you to stay. He’d mumble an apology as well, hoping that will do until he’s collected enough to apologize properly.

Suga/Min Yoongi: 

He’d still be pretty riled up, so he’d probably physically stop you from packing your things, and you’d have to yell at him to let you leave since “you’re using him” to make him fully realize what he said. And then he’ll just go numb, I think. His arms would fall to his side and he’d just stare at you. I don’t think he’d stop you from leaving after that, but expect him to blow your phone up with apologies the next day to make you forgive him.

Originally posted by beui


J-Hope/Jung Hoseok: 

The moment when he sees you packing your things, all anger would be drained from him and he’d just break down sobbing. I have a feeling that he would feel as if he wouldn’t be worthy of you anymore after saying that to you. You’d be the one who ends up comforting him. Wether that is right at that moment, or a few days later is up to you. But once you’ve made him feel better and made it clear that you forgive him, he’d be so soft towards you.

Rap Monster/Kim Namjoon: 

I don’t think he’d actually get angry enough to say something like that, unless you were actually using him. He’s too level-headed. But if he did, he’d just deflate like Yoongi, and be completely numb. He’d be in disbelief over his own words, and just wouldn’t find it in him to stop you because he’d want to leave too if he were you. And when he’s had the time to think things through, aka the next day, he’ll just send you multiple texts with a list of things you’ve done for him, to prove that he doesn’t really think that you’re using him.

Originally posted by jeonsshi


Jimin/Park Jimin: 

It’s hard to get this boy that angry. So when he is, he’ll stay angry for a while. He’d probably yell for you to leave since you’re not willing to solve this as adults. But once he’s calmed down again, he’ll be so upset and ashamed of himself. He’d probably try to think of 1000 ways to apologize to you, but he’d be kind of like Hobi and feel like he doesn’t deserve you anymore. He’d still try, though.

Originally posted by sweaterpawsjimin


V/Kim Taehyung: 

In all honesty, I feel like it’d sort of be the other way around. Like, you would be angry at him for spoiling you too much, and that it might make others think that you’re using him. But, if he really was angry enough to say that, he’d be very similar to Jin, I think. He’d be annoyed that you thought the solution was to just leave, but he wouldn’t say anything and just try to apologize and carefully stop you from leaving.

Originally posted by taehanstic-baby


Jungkook/Jeon Jeongguk: 

Like Jimin, he’d probably be too angry to quite realize what he said and just tell you to leave if that’s what you want. But he’d be in total despair once realisation hits him. To him, he wouldn’t be worthy of you forgiving him. And he’d have no clue how to even try to make you forgive him either. Like, telling you that you’re using him wold be unforgivable in his mind. He’d most likely consult his hyungs on this one.

hc on dallas dating an innocent girl who doesn't drink or smoke or fight?

-He didn’t know that at first because when they met at a party and she was holding a beer.

-But she had taken the drink from her friend and was only there to take her friend home.

-Their first date didn’t go so well because Dally brought her to Buck’s for some drinks.

-But when she tells him that she doesn’t drink he was a bit surprised but he still thought she was pretty and wanted to take her out so they went for milkshakes.

-And Dally found himself having a surprising a good time even though he wasn’t even buzzed.

-He was surprised when she refuses cigarettes too.

-But she didn’t seem bothered that he smoked.

-They went out on a few more dates.

-And Dally found himself enjoying the time with her even sober.

-He got mad at her one night when some girls were picking on her and she didn’t even stand up for herself.

-She told him that she hated fighting.

-Dally was surprised at how well they were getting along despite how little they had in common.

-But he stayed with her and she stayed with him despite the fact that she didn’t agree with everything that he did.

-Dally wasn’t changing for her or because of her.

-But he didn’t drink when she was around.

-Which was easy because she always kept him to distracted to want to drink.

-And he tried his best to avoid confrontation if she was there as well.

-That one was a bit harder.

-He still smoked all of the time though.

-But he’d make sure not to do it if she was standing close to him.

My xbox just died ;-; RIP 360. RIP my life.

Gotta say though, that’s pretty shocking, considering I still have my original xbox crystal, which I’ve had since they came out, and it works perfectly. But I’ve only had my 360 for 3 or 4 years and it’s broken now.

Pretty shady.

The winter came back today. It was too windy, so I only had the camera out for a bit. Still got some pretties, blue-gray and red were dominant colours today :) I wonder what is happening to that Cardinal though. This is not molting time, could he be roughed up from fighting with a rival? I see them chasing eachother a lot lately. Bluebirds were back to check out the nestbox this morning as well.

anonymous asked:

are there... are there actually going to be alien genitals in me:a? or just general boobs/butts like da:i?

Originally posted by i-am-a-lucky-artefact

Obviously, I don’t know any more than you do. Keep in mind, though, that Dragon Age: Inquisition got a Nudity rating from the ESRB as opposed to Partial Nudity, so it’s fair to assume Andromeda is still in the same ballpark. For comparison, Dragon Age: Origins, Mass Effect, and Mass Effect 3 all got Partial Nudity ratings.

Also, there’s this:

Softcore usually means “everything but the explicit bits,” though it can range from groping makeouts that fade-to-black to full-on erotica that depicts sex but doesn’t focus explicitly on genitals, penetration, ejaculation, etc. As with any attempts to categorize depictions of sexuality in media, the definition of what should and shouldn’t fit within each label is pretty subjective. It’s generally “I know it when I see it” sort of stuff.

Given what Bioware has done in the past, I’m guessing we won’t be getting explicit alien peen or anything. It’s probably still falling in the boobs/butts range with a fade-to-black when things get really steamy. 

But that’s just an educated guess.

What are your thoughts on the role of design in firearms, compared to engineering? I'm an industrial designer by trade and find the design of most modern firearms pretty unimaginative, almost as though design has ceased to be a factor. (Seems to me like everything currently wants to either look like a Glock, a J-frame, or an AR).

Firearms as a technology have reached what has proved to be a nigh-insurmountable plateau. Sure, guns will get more accurate and ammunition more effective but these improvements are still very small compared to the world-changing advancements made between 1880 and 1960. I think we would need huge advances in energy technology before we find anything more practical and reliable than the chemical-based(gunpowder) weapons we’ve been using for centuries

Kenny, do you still run into Damien in hell? Or probably Pip?

(Damien’s still roaming Earth. He’s still in South Park, actually. He just skips his classes because he’s the Anti-Christ, like that really excuses him from learning shit. I die a lot, but still attend my classes whenever I can.)

(Pip, on the other hand, is doing pretty good in Hell. Last I checked, he found his birth parents. Sometimes he’ll go out of his way to search for me; probably because he kind of misses South Park for some reason.)

(We’ve talked to each other a few times. I’m not really close with either of them though. Mostly because Damien turned me into a platypus that one time and because Pip’s still a total Melvin, even in death.)

NEW MILESTONE!!! 200+ FOLLOWERS!!!

~First, a thank you from Noctis and Luna!

“You guys are all pretty incredible, you know that? We look forward to answering everyone’s questions erryday. We get some good ones and some very brave ones. *he chuckles* We know that not many people support our relationship in general, but to see that we’ve already got over 200 people following us, liking our answers, even reblogging them, that’s pretty awesome. It helps spread the word, too. So yeah. Keep the asks coming, keep the reblogs up, and that keeps the blog, and us, alive.”

“I am overjoyed by the thought and fact, that so many of you ask us questions on nearly a daily basis. Some of them are really meaningful and others are quite amusing, though I won’t ever forget some of the more hmmm…. peculiar bold ones too. Noctis still thinks and laughs about some of them at times, the very same goes for me. We both hope you keep on asking us all kinds of questions in the near future. And we shall answer them, as best as we can afford, ourselves. Bless you, all.”

~A thank you from the admins! 

We just reached a new milestone! 200+ followers and this blog has been up for less than a month! You guys all rock! I just wanna say thanks so much for all the asks, the reblogs, the likes and the support the fandom has been giving us. It’s much appreciated! To see so much happiness and positivity in our fandom makes us feel good. I love seeing how people respond to our blog! I do my best to stay in character as Noctis, being nerdy when I need to be, acting cool when I should, and getting emotional when necessary. He’s fun to delve further into. We do our best to keep the blog running as smooth as possible. We try to answer at least a few asks a day, and when we see your reblogs and your tags and responses to our answers, it never fails to make us smile. So again, thanks for that! Now let’s see if we can reach 300 followers! ;)
~oraclesoul

Hey there everyone! First of all, I want to thank each and every one of you for your support and questions! And of course for helping us reaching our milestone of now more than over 200 followers! I am always thrilled and excited what new asks you guys send Luna and Noctis. We always strive to answer in character as best we can. I always keep in mind that Luna is more graceful in her speech, and manners when answering her related questions, but I think she has a really dorky side too at times. These asks all allow me to think deeper into the characters actions and motives at particular key scenes from the game, that never had occurred to me before that ask. It makes my gaming experience within this game even more engaging.
~mistress-light

As some of you have probably noticed I’ve been posting a lot more about my personal experiences and thoughts recently on this blog whereas I hadn’t prior. I just wanted to say that I’m happy that they seem to be getting positive attention and helping other people out who might feel alienated or need someone to relate to, and that even though I’m still a pretty private individual, I’m always happy and willing to talk to people about stuff if they have something to add to the things I discuss, or even just ask my opinion on things.

That being said I know a lot of you came here for Undertale, be it my writing or the art I reblog, and if you don’t like seeing stuff that’s more on a personal level, I tag all of that with “daily life with skull”, and you can filter it out. Your dash should be yours, after all, and if you don’t want to unfollow me entirely but don’t want to see personal stuff, I want you to know it’s okay to block those things or to unfollow me completely if it makes you more comfortable.

I feel like making those posts is helping me sort out my thoughts, and knowing that they’re helping other people is just the icing on the cake, so you probably will see more of that in the future.

Thanks anon. That always bugged me about those blogs cause I’d see posts that really made me happy but I felt like I wasn’t “allowed” to have those posts. I mean even the “dateaboy” blogs I’ve come across don’t make those kind of exclusions.

And yeah there’s a bunch of shitposts on here but I’d still like to think it’s a pretty positive blog,

Just want to talk about how cute my girlfriend is for a minute. She isn’t really into all the witch stuff, but she supports it and helps me on my endeavors.

Like the other day while I was sleeping because I work overnights, it started hailing and she went, “Oh, I’m sure Brittany could use hail for something witchy!” and then proceeded to go outside in the hail and grab me hail. Except she forgot that hail melts and it was pretty small pieces anyways, so they melt faster. She still kept the melted piece in a jar lid though. It twas a cute thought. 

TW Episode 1.11 Alan “Is not Impressed” Deaton.

This scene. I <3 this scene so much. But I swear Deaton feaked me out just a little. I mean he wasn’t completely protected. There was a lot Peter could have done and yet he didn’t kill Alan. I always wondered why. I was pretty sure Peter knew what exactly Deaton was even though the rest of us didn’t at this point.

Peter, “Hello there, I’m impressive and gorgeous, fight me.” Hale.

Alan, Not Impressed, Deaton.   I disagree, Deaton. I was impressed!

Let me come closer so you can gaze at my perfect hair and eyes some more.

Alan, Still not Impressed, Deaton. 

The rest of us: *Swoon*.  What’s not to be impressed about?

How about a close up of my pretty eyes, People say I’m pretty when I’m angry. Am I right?

“You’re Pretty something, Alright.” Alan, still not impressed Deaton.

The rest of us: RUN You idiot!

Oh come on, I’m adorable.

Alan, who proves he’s not just a Veterinarian, Deaton. He’s a bad ass Veterinarian too. And is still not even remotely impressed.

Okay, FINE. Me and my perfect hair are leaving now.

The rest of us:  No, wait…. stay on the screen! Goddamnit.

Oh my heart, Peter Hale. He gets crazier and more reckless every episode, it’s great. I loved every minute he was on the screen.
