this would work on me honestly

Honestly, I’ve never really been big on crossovers.  They work occasionally, but the whole question of “what would happen if X met Y???” always struck me as a pretty boring one.  What would happen, without any particular plot to drive it along, is that the characters would meet, and that would be that.

Crossovers work best when there is a plot that involves both stories without seeming out of place for either.  And the plot needs to be central to the crossover, or else it’s just character soup.

Honestly the most impressive feats of reaching I’ve seen have been by the religious American socially conservative right trying to frame traditional hetero relationship dynamics as progressive and somehow being liberating or empowering for women being the “submissive/obedient” partner, and furthermore that these dynamics are logical and necessary for a healthy relationship to work.  The mental gymnastics would win Olympic medals.  I’m sorry but no amount of genital-based Christian marriage/pilot and co-pilot analogies are ever going to stop making me roll my eyes so hard they almost fall out of my head

I don’t get Stain’s Quirk...

I love this anime, and there are a lot of strange quirks I can just accept and move on from. However, I’m sorry but Stain’s just doesn’t make any sense?? The blood he ingests from his victim is disconnected from them, so how is the other person directly affected? I would understand if his saliva mixed with the blood in the body, but how can it affect the victim if that blood is no longer in them?? Blood doesn’t have a brain or some kind of connection when separated like that. It’s still the SAME blood, yeah, but how does the ingesting work? The body does some kind of… SCAN of the area and paralyzes a match?

Can someone help me figure this out?? Or is the show just throwing ALL logic out the window (which I shouldn’t be too surprised about honestly)

I was so busy today, but I found time to read THAT SCENE like 8 times??? I literally read your fic while waiting in an embassy and the intensity of your writing is so amazing. I love love the mood of everything, oh my god. "Love does not require forgiveness to sustain itself." I don't normally ever remember quotes from fics but this struck me so hard—YOU DONT KNOW HOW MUCH YOU WRECKED ME. But yeah, love what you're doing so much. Keep up the good work hehe.

THANK YOU!!! (I hope your wait in the embassy wasn’t too bad, my experiences with them have always been long lines and ridiculous waits.)

I’m so glad that line has resonated with so many readers, hah. I honestly didn’t think it would to this extent??? (I have to confess I have a different personal favourite line!)

Story-time with Sora and Noctis takes a weird turn. Noct may have competition for the title of Crown Prince of Napping!

Bonus time-jump panel in which Noctis takes his rightful place as the Naptime King:

I can honestly say without a shadow of a doubt, if it wasn’t for this show and the talents of this man there would have never been a Powerpuff Girls. 

Its iconic characters, its bold approach to color and design, its ability to simultaneously work as a serious superhero show for kids and a comedic farce for adults, and its unashamed silliness, made Batman one of biggest inspirations of my creative life. 

So thank you Adam West for being a literal hero to me as a kid and a creative hero to me as an adult.

RIP

@cheshirerabit said: Shit, your teacher Bakugou idea is something I never considered but now think would be really cool. Cuz he would not stop being a hero but he wouldn’t half-ass being a teacher so it would be like how All Might attempted to hero and teach but could actually work. Plus, I’m all for Bakugou’s role model switching with time to Aizawa. 10/10 idea.

Anon said: OMG Fran now i want to see Teacher or Older Bakugou or or Bakugou with Aizawa

Bless both of you for giving me a reason to talk about this cause honestly I love this idea way more than striktly necessary - this!!! is how I like to think it would go down:

endless reasons to love dean winchester 

@ said: I honestly like the way he treats sex. It’s a healthy, human thing. Remember the porn actress [Suzy]? Many guys would be condescending, mean and plain creepy about it. Dean? He was a real fan who told her that her work improved his life and it wasn’t until she brought it up that he even considered sex with her. It wasn’t a “given” because she was a sex worker, lol he was actually star struck

tell me why you love dean

“We should… get to dinner. Drack said he was making—”
“I heard. And I would rather stay here, like this.”


i had the opportunity to commission @lonicera-caprifolium, and i have to say that i couldn’t be more pleased with the result. i mean, c’mon! you can see how fluffy and perfect oberon looks. they were such a sweetheart, and honestly, i can’t wait to commission them again! pls go check out their work. ♡

okay so like

while i absolutely adore zakk and his friendship with alexa- and okay when i was very young I shipped it too- some of the big problems I have with Zalexa is that 

a) it doesn’t really recognize Adam, who is just as much a part of the trio as either of them and, in my opinion, would be left out so much if Zakk and Alexa started dating. like, they wouldn’t intend too exclude him but he’s already kinda the odd man out sometimes, and if they started dating it’d be even worse

b) Zakk is going through a lot!! Even if the show doesn’t really acknowledge it, he is away from his family and is often really out of place in the future- see any episode from season one, s2e4-8, and like, the opener to season 3- and while he does have friends and has a great time a lot, like, he is not emotionally ready to be in a serious relationship until he starts talking about his problems. (and yeah, I know, most people don’t ship them until they’re teens, but like. It is gonna take Zakk years to open up about his emotional problems.) 

c) After mid-season two, Alexa has a huge weight placed on her shoulders, and it stays during even the disaster of season 3. She’s doing school, student council, ten-ball, trying to make a Time Splicer, and seems to be keeping all the household chores (?? I know this was in an episode somewhere of her like cooking dinner while Zakk and Adam comes back from the movies but I’m not sure where), and like. that’s a lot of stress! unless you have Hadron come back and start acting like a proper parent again, I don’t think she would have enough time to sleep, let alone have a serious romantic relationship with anyone. 

d) her chemistry with Sari from Student Council. That is all

dating yoongi [realistically]

important: please remember that everything I wrote down is my own personal opinion. I do not know Yoongi personally, so this is based on my imagination of ‘’realistic’’ only.


• first things first ; he really doesn’t care about appearance. he said this a lot of times and actually out of all people in bangtan, he is the only one I truly do believe. (not that I shame on the other members, it’s natural after all)

• so I can imagine him being with any type of woman out there

• yoongi is really wise for his age, he has gone through a lot as well so I believe a girl that is close to his age with life experience would work the best for him

• he is a really simple and easy-going person so someone that is calm and nice is probably his type

• so if yoongi would start liking you he would probably not try to tell you right away

• he would wait or not tell you at all because he’s afraid he’ll get hurt

• you probably being the one who breaks down his walls and tell him that you like him a lot

• I have a feeling he can be really insecure about himself so he would probably think you’re too good for him

• but once you’re his girlfriend you would make sure to make him feel so loved and relevant

• he could get so cuddly once he’s in the mood

• but could also get so distant at times for no certain reason

• he’s really unpredictable

• since he’s bad at expressing his feelings with words he wouldn’t be able to say I love you easily

• but he would write so many songs about you

• you would bag him to show you some of them but he would probably just smile
• “no, not yet”

• if you finally hear them, you’d probably be so touched, maybe even cry (if you’re a soft stan like me) and he would be so happy and chuckle at your reactions

• lots of hugs honestly

• you being his own sweet getaway from the harsh cold world

• if he is feeling down or just turns more quiet than usual ; best way to find out what’s bothering him is probably just looking at him softly and taking his hand

• just so you’d make sure he knows you’re there

• days where you just lay on the bed next to each other; he’s working on his music while you’re scrolling down your phone or reading a book

• both of you being really content even though you don’t talk during those moments

• because simply your presence would make him feel so much better

• yoongi being happy and content would turn out to be a common thing with you by his side

• him writing you letters once a while when he’s on tour
• (after seeing that he wrote 300 for armys)

• he’s so calm most of the time, I’ve never seen him angry and I feel like when he’s mad, he isn’t the type of man who would yell at you

• he’s more of the silent treatment type

• so you would barely fight probably

• especially in the beginning of your relationship

• because you’re both really mature and don’t get mad for simple things

• but if it comes to a fight it’s probably settled quickly simply because the one who did a mistake would apologize

• if you’d be upset or cry he probably wouldn’t know how to comfort you at first

• it would turn really awkward for him

• but when there are phases where you are really unhappy with yourself or how things never work out for you he would support you as much as he can

• because he knows how much it hurts to be alone and have no one who truly believes in you

• you’re always eating together

• your favorite kind of date is probably just being lazy and eating as much as you can

• instead of buying you expensive presents I can imagine him giving you a lot of self made things

• cute selfies

• the members being surprised that you’re the only person he doesn’t mind spending 24/7 of his time with since he’s usually the one likes to have his own space

• probably not the jealous type

• type of person who secretly stresses over stuff that he doesn’t need to

• but if he would get jealous and he knows it’s just because he’s insecure ; he wouldn’t tell you

• because as I said, I believe yoongi is mature enough and he owns a big understanding heart, so that’s probably the reason he wouldn’t tell you

• your happiness would be his biggest priority after all

• he doesn’t look like a great texter; so I believe he wouldn’t really contact you that often through texts if you’re apart

• he would call you though

• especially once he gets comfortable around you he wouldn’t be ashamed to call you as much as he would want

• which could turn out to be a regular thing

• but there could also be times where he wouldn’t call you for days/maybe even a week

• but I have a feeling that if you’re dating yoongi, you wouldn’t have to talk to him everyday

• like he would be one of those people in your life that you could go on days without talking and it wouldn’t change anything about the strong bond that you have

• because you understand that both of you are busy and you don’t need to constantly check up on each other to know you love each other

• type of man who is there for you whenever you need him but also leaves you alone if you want him to

• if he’s grumpy you’d know how to cheer him up

• like he’d be so whipped for the girl he loves

• but sometimes he could be really harsh without wanting to

• again, pda wouldn’t be a thing

• even though some people see yoongi as dominant and “daddy material” I couldn’t ever imagine him having a kink like that

• among all of the seven members I feel like he would take the longest time to give in and have sex with you

• maybe that’s also because of the insecurities he has sometimes

• he once said how he wants to be taller, more tan and have a beard (so you have a feeling what type of man he actually wants to be)

• he seems so sensitive/sensible & soft most of the time

vanilla sex mostly

definitely falls asleep after sex

• he seems like a person who thinks a lot so deep conversations & nonsense conversations

• his gummy smile

• yoongi being completely and helplessly in love would make every single soul around him feel so much happiness for him

• because he’s so special and people know that

• the members being happy

• you both being happy

• so even though min yoongi is a lazy man and sometimes really hard to understand, he also couldn’t be much more understanding towards his loved ones.

• he is someone who will never need a lot to be content with his life

• especially after finding the one he truly loves, he could maybe even start to appreciate living a bit more

[TRANS] Jackson talking about giving up fencing to pursue being an idol 170602

people always said to me, why did you come here? weren’t you doing fencing? you would’ve been more successful then..but we, GOT7 & ahgases know better than anyone else that we’re going to go on together for a long time honestly, when I came to Korea as a trainee.. it became a situation where I couldn’t go back to HK anymore if I went back I couldn’t do fencing again..& would have to look for another college, b/c actually back then I received a Stanford offer they invited me to join their fencing team, but i gave up the opportunity to attend such a good school & a chance at a medal to come here it was a huge challenge, so I made up my mind to REALLY work hard..because i wasn’t even good looking or talented, idek why I was accepted…I didn’t even know Korean,it was really hard. After debut, I was really happy because people knew me,it was like the best gift I had for my parents

MS3 Resources

For all my wonderful rising MS3 followers, here’s the list of things I used for each shelf exam. I was completely clueless about what to study at the beginning of third year, so I hope this can be helpful! Third year is INFINITELY better than first/second year, so don’t stress. It is possible to get honors on shelf exams. Don’t let anybody tell you otherwise. 

Resources for Every Rotation:

  1. Online Med Ed: didn’t get a chance to use all of it for internal, but used it for every other rotation. It is best to use these videos during the first few days of the rotation to get a nice foundation of knowledge.
  2. Emma Ramahi powerpoints: just google her name and they will pop up. She has powerpoints on IM, peds, psych, and surgery. These are easy “gimme” points and are always amazingly helpful. Best to do these at the beginning and towards the end of the rotation (during the week before the shelf). Easily got me 10 extra questions on both IM and surgery shelves.
  3. NBME practice exams: I always did at least 1-2 of these for every rotation (except family medicine…because they don’t have any for family med :( ). Best to do them the weekend or so before the shelf. Sometimes, the questions in the practice exams are eerily similar to the real shelf questions. 

Rotation-Specific Resources: 

Family Medicine: My Family medicine shelf was based off of CaseFiles…so this won’t be helpful for schools that use NBME’s version. 

  1. CaseFiles: Literally every question from my shelf was pulled from these 43924890238 cases. So, memorize them as best you can if your shelf is set up this way.
  2. AAFP has a set of practice questions. Just sign up for a free membership and you can access them.

Unfortunately, there are no practice shelf exams, no OME videos, and no Ramahi powerpoint :( This shelf can be tough. Focus a lot on health maintenance and screening stuff.

Internal Medicine: At my school, this rotation was SO SHORT for the amount of things you need to learn (only 6 weeks). Start studying early and stay on top of it.

  1. I did not have time to do OME videos. At all. I don’t really regret it, but I hear they are good.
  2. I did all the U World questions. There are like…1400? of them. It is a LOT for 6 weeks in addition to working from 6am-5pm. However, they are excellent prep.
  3. Step Up to Medicine chapters on cardio and ambulatory medicine are da bomb and added to U World. This whole book would honestly be really great prep, but I just didn’t have enough time to read it all. I’m using it more during Step 2 study time, and I really love it.

Neurology: This was only a 3 week rotation for me, but the residents and attendings were amazing teachers and absolutely saved us for the shelf exam. 

  1. U World questions
  2. First Aid: around 40 pages. Good foundation along with OME.
  3. Case Files: I thought this particular Case Files was super helpful.

OB/GYN: Gyn-Onc week was possibly the hardest week of third year as far as hours and work went, for me. Benign-Gyn and L&D were also super busy weeks. Basically, just try to plan your study schedule as best you can with the knowledge that this is an extremely busy rotation.

  1. U World
  2. First Aid: pretty long section (like 70 pages), but good foundational knowledge.
  3.  APGO questions: 550 questions that are a little more “detailed.”  
  4. Case Files if there is time.

Pediatrics: Wards and clinic weeks are super busy. Residents are amazing and very good teachers. You will learn a ton.  This shelf was a bit of a sleeper in that it was more difficult than people were expecting.

  1. U world
  2. First Aid: 50 pages of goodness
  3. Case Files: honestly didn’t find this one as helpful as neuro or OB. 

Psychiatry: Residents and attendings are very nice and hours are great. Know the drugs really, really well. Supposedly, the shelf this year will now officially contain all the DSM-V diagnoses.

  1. U World
  2. First Aid for Psychiatry: This book is honestly all you need to get honors on the psych shelf. It is unequivocally the best study aid for this rotation. Its also pretty short and if you really want to, you can probably get through the whole thing in one weekend.
  3. Relax during this rotation! 

Surgery: Long hours, rough days, but also very challenging and exciting cases (sometimes). 

  1. U World
  2. Dr. Pestana’s Surgery Notes: great review of high yield topics, but leaves out a lot of detail.
  3. National Medical Series (NMS) – Surgery: I absolutely loved this book. It gets pretty detailed at times, but provides a more comprehensive review of shelf information.

THINGS I LEARNED DURING MY GAP YEAR

hi everybody! it’s definitely been a while, huh? i hope everyone is well and has been/ is studying hard for their end of year exams! good luck!

since my gap year is coming to an end, i decided i wanted to make a few posts about it to help some of you guys, who have been asking me about my experience, out. these are a few things i’ve learned during my gap year.

► it’s ok to be the only one taking a gap year

this was a really big thing for me. no one i knew decided to take one at the end of our secondary school career. i was the only person in my big old school, as for as i’m aware of, that chose to do so. i have to admit it’s really weird to be the only one in your friend group not going to university and experiencing that exciting time. in belgium it really isn’t a common thing to do either. especially not after secondary school. but! and this is a big but: you will. a gap year doesn’t mean you’re never going to go to uni/ college and experience the same as your friends! it’s a year out to work or discover what you really want to do in life. and if it just so happens you find out you prefer working straight away, that’s totally cool! whatever suits you! i just hope my friends learn to accept others who choose to work instead of studying instead of making them feel like they’re just too “dumb” for uni/college. we all choose different paths in life. let’s all try to live with that.

► keep yourself busy

one of the things most adults told me was to keep myself busy during my gap year, because otherwise i’d become incredibly lazy. for my part, this is so true. there were a few weeks at the start of october that i wasn’t working, and i became such really lazy. i slept in almost every day and i didn’t feel motivated to do anything. i also felt quite isolated and lonely. you don’t have to work to keep yourself busy though! you could travel, pick up a hobby, get better at something you’ve already learned, etc. as long as you’re keeping yourself busy and making the most out of your gap year! why would you be taking one otherwise?

► you will lose friends and make new ones

don’t be afraid of the fact you’ll eventually lose some old friends. the people who don’t invest in your friendship as much as you do don’t deserve you honestly! i started feeling lonely too, since a few of my friends never made any effort to keep in contact with me, or meet up with me, even though i tried time and time again. it’s totally normal and will happen to everyone.this doesn’t mean you should just give up on all your friendships though! but trust me: you’ll know what i’m talking about at some point in your life. at work i met a group of really great young people like me, and we have become a really close group of friends. we take out breaks together, go out after work and hang out on our days off. they’ve really given me the kind of friendship i was looking for, and i’m really grateful for that.

► don’t feel so guilty about having fun

this was a biggie for me. i can’t really explain it, but i started feeling guilty about having so much fun. in school there weren’t that many times i went out or hung out with my friends because i was focusing on studying, so whenever i made plans this year, i felt really weird about it. almost as if i was having too much fun? this is a really silly feeling and i’ve learned to let that part of me go. it’s important to bond with your friends and yourself by exploring places and making memories. don’t feel bad about it.

► money, money, money

i think everyone has a hard time figuring out how to budget and save the first time round. (if not: you should write a book for all of us who did struggle!) i’m in a position where i can save a very large part of my money each month because i only pay my parents a little each month. keeping in mind, my goal was double of what i started with, i’m incredibly close. i’m using all my money to pay for my tuition fees for 2 years and part of my rent, so i’m doing a great job so far, even if i do say so myself.  it’s not so easy for others, and it’s so normal to struggle if you’re not used to working and earning a steady income each month. don’t be too hard on yourself about this: you’re young and clueless.

► in the end: it’s only one year

it’s really easy to get it into your head that this year is going to be hard and will feel like it lasts forever, but time honestly flies. when i first starting on the first of july time seemed to go so slowly. every day seemed to last an age, and i wondered what it would feel like to only have a few months left. i’m at that stage now, and every day seems to fly by. i was told it would take me six months to get used to working, but it only took me 3. by the time october came around i was so used to getting up at a certain time, finishing at 6pm, coming home, eating, practicing on the piano and going to bed. it doesn’t seem that exciting, but we’re all creatures of habit and routine. i feel like i’ve changed a lot as a person, but also like i haven’t at all. in some aspects i’m much wiser, but at the same time i still feel like a lost kid. a year really isn’t a long time at all. 

those were just some things i’ve learned so far. i still have a total of 9 weeks left until i’m packing up and flying to barcelona to start an incredibly exciting chapter of my life. who knows what will happen! i’ll be making a few more posts about gap years, so if you’re interested in taking one, just keep an eye out!

lots of love, lou.

I am going to get emo over Capricorns so bear with me. I love Capricorns so much like so so much and I appreciate them deeply and I am so thankful that they exist cause honestly we would be lost without them. They are the real heros who work hard but never are appreciated or thanked enough. But my heart hurts for them cause they want to be loved so much, to be accepted as they are and they have so much love in them that they want to give to others. But due to their harsh life they tend to be the ones who endure responsibility, pain and suffering but all in silence. In my opinion the biggest sacrificer is not Pisces but rather Capricorns. They sacrifice their emotions and happiness for the sake of others. Whenever I see a Capricorn I see so much pain inside but they cover it up either with a cheerful or serious look and I also hate how people around them ignore their pain and sadness and just burden them with more responsibilities. I love Capricorns so much and appreciate them deeply and I hope they get everything they want cause honestly they always deserve better.

Three Weeks Ago:

“No offense I hope, but…you seem a bit older than most of the other applicants,” said the man who sat before you.

“None taken, I promise. Trust me, I never thought I’d be applying for a nanny job in my late 20s because I can’t get a job even with a Master’s degree,” you replied, laughing nervously.

“Understood,” he nodded. “So, what makes you a good fit for this position, Ms. (Y/L/N)?” he asked, tapping a pen lazily on your resume before him.
