friendly reminder that vaughn was chubby and insecure in college, practically overshadowed by rhys and is now a confident bandit boss with sick abs, kickass beard and hairdo and was constantly smiling when he first saw rhys and fiona again and probably has the best time of his life
post mark’s return to earth he and the rest of the hermes crew are gathered at some press conference where he’s discussing how he survived, what it’s like to be a symbol for humanity’s further attempts for interplanetary exploration etc etc

homosexuality, heterosexuality and all of those other shits are so weird. Like, why do you need gender to know what kind of person you like? Like idk you guys, it’s so weird. If you like someone then, you like them? But, why does there need to be a specific dong or like, why do you need to know what’s under the other person’s pants for you to like them?
Like this shit is so wild like wtf
It got me thinking all of a sudden like woah, is sex that important to people??? idk
I mean like, I don’t really care for a person’s gender or whatever the heck is under their pants. If a person is eye candy then, they’re eye candy and I can have a crush on them but like… It’s so hard to find a person you actually like??? Like, someone you can love, cherish, and give your whole being to???
Like, idgaf about gender yet I find it so hard to find that “other-half” people talk about yet, there are people who stick looking for that other half with a specific gender in their mind and like woah, that shit is just so fucked up and weird and like idk, i don’t understand why
in other words, sex is so fucking weird. Attraction is weird even idk where I was going with this but, people in general are so fucking weird
As a woman with 4C Natural hair, i’ve done my FAIR share of research. Here are just a few tips to retain the length of natural 4B/4C hair.
1. Wash in sections
Because our hair type has a tendency to shrink and tangle easily, washing in sections is ideal for retaining length. Whether you section your hair in big braids, big twists, or via hair clips/holders, keeping the hair stretched and bound will help to prevent detangling nightmares and breakage.
2. Stretched hairstyles are your friend
This tip may sound obvious to some but still warrants mentioning. Stretched styles – twist-outs, braid-outs, bantu knot outs, etc. – are good go-to styles when you want to wear your loose and free. Why? Because when our coils and kinks are stretched, they are less likely to interact with each other to form knots and tangles, which in turn can lead to premature trims and breakage.
3. Bounded styles are also your friend
Buns, twists, braids, and many other styles in this category restrict our super coily strands from interacting with each other as well. Some bounded styles may be more effective than others depending on your hair density and texture within the type 4B/4C category.
4. Avoid harsh tools (or tools altogether) when detangling
Wide tooth seamless combs and/or our fingers are amongst the most gentle tools for our hair. The widely spread apart teeth on the comb minimizes snagging and snapping during a detangling session. Our fingers can do the same but more effectively (when done properly) for many of us. As for brushes? While not all brushes are created equal, I rarely (if ever) see a type 4B/4C natural achieve long hair using any sort of brush during detangling sessions.
5. Try to style with your fingers (instead of brushes and combs)
Too much combing and brushing (in addition to over-stretching the hair) can contribute to mid-shaft splits. Our kinky tresses are more prone to these kind of splits, and so we need to be more careful of using such tools excessively. If youmust use a comb or brush to style your hair, keep it to a minimum.
6. Manipulate your hair as little as possible
The more you manipulate your hair, the more likely you are to, not only get breakage, but tangles and knots due to the nature of our tight coils. This tip corresponds with that of number 3 – wearing bounded styles, styles that restrict our strands from interacting with one another. Additionally, wearing such styles for a good amount of time can prevent you from over-manipulating your hair.
7. Moisturize and seal thoroughly
Every natural can probably benefit from this tip, but it is especially important for type 4B/4C hair. Why? Because our tight coils and kinks do not allow for as much sebum or moisture distribution as, say loose curls or straight hair. That being said, applying some moisture and sealant to the top, sides, and bottom of your hair is not sufficient. For some of us, separating our hair into two or three sections is not enough either. While you obviously do not have to work strand by strand, be sure to really get “in there” AND all the way down to the ends when moisturizing and sealing.
Yukino is very formal with everyone and always adds the sama honorific to the end of every name. She addresses Natsu as Natsu-sama, Lucy as Lucy-sama, Frosch as Frosch-sama, and Rogue as Rogue-sama. You get the drift.
So I find it quite alarming how Yukino has taken her need for formality down a notch when it comes to a certain blonde dragon slayer. In the anime, Yukino calls Sting, “Sting-san.”
It seems likeSting is her only exception…?
Yukino even refers to the castle as “castle-sama."
This indicates to me that Yukino feels closest to Sting which is completely understandable since he was the one to confront her at the banquet and invite her back to Sabertooth.
