Anyway, can we just appreciate how every character page in the volumes are all completely different

i think my favorites are the second one, where all Might, Izuku and Bakugou are doing some kinda weird dance thing (and idek what Aizawa is doing back there), and the third, where they’re all adorably bundled up for winter

Hello, I was going through your tags (on the recommendation of @notbecauseofvictories) and I was just curious what your favorite monster/human romance media is? Books, movies, even fanfic, I've just been trying to find some good media about it for a while now and it's hard to slog through Google results. Thank you in advance!

Hey! here’s a real incomplete list of some monster romance media:

What to do when you really don’t want to study.

I think we’ve all been there - the class is important and you know you need to study but when you sit down you end up feeling grOSS AND YOU don’t want to. So here are some tips to overcoming that:

 Take a deep breath and reevaluate why you need to study. Try to stay positive.

  • When I’m not motivated I keep saying things like “what if I just don’t do it?” And then - surprise! - I end up not studying and suffer/regret it later. When coming up with reasons to study, try to keep it positive. Don’t say things like “if I don’t study I’ll fail the class.” Instead, say things like “if I study, I have a better chance at doing well on the exam. Future-me will be so proud of current-me.”
  • If you truly cannot find a single reason to study, set your studying aside for later and do another productive activity or take a long break.

Drill it into your mind that you really don’t need motivation to do well.

  • Even if you find the reason to study, that doesn’t necessarily mean you are very motivated. Sometimes we feel like no motivation = unable to study. This isn’t true.
  • Make a deal with yourself. Try studying for ten minutes. And actually try to study. If by the end of ten minutes you feel like you can continue studying, great! Keep going! If not, then you can take a break and do something else.

Choose a study scheduling method that works for you.

  • Some people feel great studying for hours on end once they get in "the zone.” Others feel the need to take quick breaks every half hour. Studying and scheduling methods are different for everybody! Play around with scheduling to find out what works for you.
  • In high-stress times, work (studying, assignments, etc.) can feel pretty overwhelming. To organize all the stuff you have to do, write it down! This takes some of the stress of remembering tasks off from your brain, so that your brain can focus on the more crucial things.
    • If you’re making a to-do list, keep the general list short. This way, you won’t feel overwhelmed by too many tasks. (You can keep sub-lists on separate paper/sticky notes to break down each task.)
    • If you’re making a time-table, keep your schedule loose. Give yourself buffer time to complete each task, just in case you overestimated your efficiency.
    • It’s totally okay to overestimate efficiency! - ifyou do, you learn more about yourself and how you study best.

Small (pomodoro) breaks

  • Pomodoro technique in a nutshell: 25 minute blocks of working with 5 minute breaks in between. Feel free to change the length of the blocks according to your preferences! During your breaks, you can
    • Get more water
    • Get snacks
    • Make tea/coffee
    • Stretch
    • Do a tiny bit of yoga
    • Walk around the room/building
    • Stretch
    • Five-minute meditation
    • Head massage
  • Try to avoid looking at a screen. When you look at a screen, you stimulate your brain and it won’t get its rest. Also, the internet might suck you in and your break could last longer than intended. (cough tumblr)

Long breaks

  • Sometimes I really really really really reALLY don’t want to study. Or do anything. And I feel kind of gross and am on the verge of a mental breakdown. If you feel this way, stop.
  • Take a hella deep breath. And another one. One more. Aaaaand one more just for good measure.
  • Get away from your desk. I associate desk with studying, so getting away from it helps me relax. Lie down on a bed, or move to a different room if you can. If you can get near a window, try looking into the distance to relax your brain and eyes.
  • Breathe for a couple of minutes, then evaluate how you feel. Again, try to stay positive. Instead of “I feel shitty and I don’t want to do anything,” try “I feel tired right now and resting can help me feel better.”
  • Based on this evaluation, estimate the amount of time you need to rest. If you have a lot of studying to do, try to keep it under an hour. Set a timer for the amount of time you have decided on. (remember to include buffer time!) Getting back to work on time can make you feel more productive, which conduct better productivity!
  • During a long break, do an activity that makes you feel good and takes your mind off studying. You can
    • Take a long walk. If you live near a park or a trail, try strolling around in it.
    • Eat healthy food. Junky comfort food can make you feel groggy, especially foods that are fried. Instead, try eating some fruits or nuts.
    • Take a shower/bath
    • Talk with a friend
    • Make some art
    • Enjoy a long coffee break. (avoid caffeine if you feel anxious/panicky, though)
    • Play with a pet
    • Take a power nap
    • Longer meditation/yoga
  • Again, try to avoid looking at screens. Also, avoid thinking about studying. Let yourself have the luxury of NOT THINKING ABOUT STUDYING for a while, so you can return to it with a fresh mind.

Mental health days

  • Sometimes everything is just too much and you might feel the need to stop everything for a day. If so, take a mental health day!
  • Think of mental health days as physical health days. If your body isn’t feeling well, you are allowed to stay in bed and sleep/not do anything for a day. Similarly, if your mind isn’t feeling well, you are also allowed to stay in bed and sleep/not do anything for a day.
  • Let your parents and teachers know that you don’t feel well and can’t go to school. From my experience, most teachers are pretty understanding and will let you have the day off. (You might have some work to make up later, though.)
  • Do not study on mental health days. Don’t even think about studying on mental health days. Instead, just focus on getting better. You can
    • Sleep in
    • Clean your room
    • Take a super long bath, complete with bath bombs and candles
    • Watch a good movie
    • Read a good book
    • Sing your favorite songs really loudly
    • Literally anything that (IS HEALTHY and) makes you feel good about yourself.

Study groups can keep you going, even when you kind of don’t want to

  • Setting up a time (like a date!) can keep you on track
  • Study with someone you trust to keep you accountable. Don’t study with someone you know you’re going to gossip or watch cat videos with.
  • If you really feel the need to cancel a study date, it’s ok! Just like canceling any kind of date, it’s 100% okay to back out if you feel uncomfortable.

Stay safe, stay healthy, and happy studying!

Thor: Ragnarok my absolute fave part

- SPOILER if it’s not yet obvious -


So Valkyrie and Banner are complaining about how Loki tried to kill them and there’s Thor saying

Yes me too, on many occasions...

and he literally could just list out all the times Loki went all murderous rage against him but he goes

There was one time when we were children, he transformed himself into a snake, and he knows I love snakes, so I picked up the snake to admire it and he transformed back into himself he was like ‘WAH IT’S ME!’ and then he stabbed me.”

and they all look at Loki and he has this smirk of absolute pride and fondness in the memory, so thank you for this little scene my will to live is restored

things to do:
- pray for touka chan
- pray for every child and their safety
- pray for everyone’s safety
- pray for touken bby

anonymous asked:

Do you know any muggle universe/au fics?

Anonymous said: Do you have any AU drarry stories where they are like not wizards or only one of them is a wizard? I love your blog so much

I don’t read Muggle AUs suuuper often, but I do have several that I really really love!! I hope you enjoy them!!

Non-Magic Drarry AU Recs

The Heist by @jadepresley (18.5K combined)- Draco Malfoy is a wealthy casino owner, and the Order of The Phoenix are a gang of thieves determined to steal from him.
This four part series remains my favorite Muggle AU ever, because it is just SO BRILLIANT and I am still not over it months later. Both Harry and Draco are SO BADASS and watching them one-up each other is so much fun!!! Their characterization is flawless, and I swear this needs to be made into a movie ASAP!

Black Coffee On A Lonely Night by @femmequixotic (21.5K)- Draco owns a café in the city. Harry’s a MP who comes in every morning, newspapers in one hand, BlackBerry in the other, and orders a triple espresso macchiato.
Okay, this fic is INSANELY good. There’s lots of delicious flirting, their professions fit them perfectly, and I’m just so in love with the whole thing. Also, the character development!! And just — every interaction is perfect, okay???

Because You Called the Wrong Person, But He Was Into It Anyway by @gracerene09 (1.5K)- Draco has called the wrong number. Harry doesn’t mind one bit.
This is a short little fic that’s part of gracerene’s “50 Reasons to Have Sex” series, and DAMN IS IT HOT!! I am a huge sucker for phone sex, and the way this happens so accidentally! And they’re so into it still! And the dirty talk! It’s just brilliant. 

Keepers by @jadepresley (9K)- Harry never thought he would end up falling head over heels for Malfoy, annoying git and his rival football team captain. And he certainly wasn’t expecting Malfoy to just waltz right into his office after years without contact. But there he was, blond and stuck up and fit as ever.
Another PERFECT AU from Jade, who somehow has an incredible gift for making Draco and Harry seem so… themselves, even without magic. Also I have a thing for sports dramas, and I loved reading about them playing against each other with all the UST and ifkjhdsus <333

There’s No I in Team by @julietsemophase(13.5K)- When Draco’s babysitter cancels on him, he has no option but to bring his son to work, despite the fact he has an extremely important day ahead of him. Rescue comes from the most unlikely of places, and Draco ends up having a day he never could have planned, or hoped for.
I adore this fic! I’m a total sucker for Drarry taking care of a kid, and this one is made extra perfect by the fact that Harry comes out of nowhere to save Draco and look after Scorpius for a bit! And they’re rivals at work and it’s just so cuuuuute and sweet all around <333

Crush Crush Crush by @julietsemophase(4K)- Harry falls for guitarist Draco, but he wants to prove he’s not a groupie. Good job Draco doesn’t do groupies.
Not only is this fic just extremely fun to read, I’ve never seen anything else like it!! I mean, come on! DRACO IN A BAND. Very very hot ;D

Inheritance by @julietsemophase(10K)- Accidental billionaire Draco meets adorable book publisher Harry.
YES I realize I am putting in a ton of fics by @julietsemophase​ but I don’t care because her muggle AUs are freaking amazing. And I love this one so much!! Not only is the drarry adorable, I love how they work together to change the company Draco inherits!

Kissing Boys by @julietsemophase(5.5K)- Harry knows his dorm mate has a secret that’s eating him up inside. One night he finally decides to try and help.
This one is so precious, because they’re college roommates and Draco is dealing with coming out and Harry helps him and it’s SO SWEET!! (Also I just want to say that Juliet has about 32890 muggle AUs and it was really hard for me to narrow it down even to four, so go read them all!!)

Yorkshire Puddings by Karina4 (14.5K)- After an unexpected encounter in a supermarket, Harry’s Christmas takes an interesting turn of events.
I have no idea how I found this fic, because I usually avoid ff.net, but let me tell you it was GREAT and so worth it. Chance encounters are great, and you can really only read about those in AUs, so give this fic and its CHRISTMASSY AF feels a chance! Also they literally fight in the middle of a super market; how great is that???

#coffee#shop#fluff by @queenofthyme (~1.5K)- No summary for this drabble, but trust me that it is amazing! It’s a coffeeshop AU, only this time Harry has to train a very posh Draco who clearly resents having to work at such a plebeian establishment and it’s AMAZING.

Trouble by @l0vegl0wsinthedark​ (7K)- Now Draco’s cock is stirring, and he can’t breathe because all he can think of is screaming Harry’s name while Harry pins him down and mindlessly fucks him into total incoherency. Because hell yes, that would be sexy as fuck and Draco is officially in so much trouble.
I completely adore this fic!! Not only is the porn amazing, the set up!!! It’s just so fantastic. I don’t want to spoil it, but the plot involves mistaken identities and rent boys (kind of?), SOOOOO ;) ;) ;). Also, Harry is wonderfully Slytherin <3

Salted Caramel Mochas (Or How to Pick Up Draco Malfoy) by loopyzoop (4K)- Harry’s good at making coffee, bad at flirting, and thinks Draco is cute. And might actually like him back. Why else would he come into Starbucks on Christmas eve?
This fic is so cute. Just remembering it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside. Coffee and Christmas and picky Draco and what more could you need?

Things I’ll Never Get Over When It Comes to Percabeth:

When Percy meets Annabeth for the first time, he legit thought that she was a princess. 

They were both blushing up a storm when Percy realizes that she was watching him all morning. Which includes him getting dressed and looking at her picture in The Sea of Monsters

Percy was high key jealous of Luke every time Annabeth brought him up even though he didn’t realize at the time he liked her throughout Percy Jackson & The Olympians

Annabeth kissed him good luck in The Battle of the Labyrinth which left him wondering what the fuck his name was until he remembered he was being hunted down. 

EVERY. FUCKIN. CAMPER. SHIPPED. THEM. TOGETHER. 

Annabeth took a poisoned blade to save Percy from dying in The Last Olympian

Percy was scared of the possibility of Annabeth choosing to become a hunter of Artemis in The Titan’s Curse. He was scared she was going to leave him

He gave up being a GOD so he could have a relationship with her. 

To celebrate their canonization, Camp Half-Blood threw them in the fuckin lake. Which lead to “The Best Underwater Kiss of All Time” in The Last Olympian

The only name Percy remembered after getting his memory wiped in The Son of Neptune was Annabeth. He remembered he had a Girlfriend and he continued to shut down romantic advancements on him throughout the novel. Which shows how dedicated he is to her. 

When Percy and Annabeth were reunited in The Mark of Athena, They have a romantic kiss which ended in Annabeth judo throwing him out of anger. Which made him laugh. 

Honestly throughout The Mark of Athena all the way up till The Blood of Olympus they’re already married. They’re married and nobody can convince me otherwise of this. 

Percy’s hot as fuck kiss to Annabeth at the birthplace of Athena and Poseidon’s rivalry turned me the fuck on honestly in The Blood of Olympus

Percy thinks about having a future with Annabeth constantly to the point where he always includes CHILDREN. He wants Annabeth as his Wife and to be the mother of his children and that makes me tear up a bit. 

Also Annabeth is the only one who gets away with calling him “Seaweed brain” playfully while he got pissed the fuck off when Thalia called him that in The Titan’s Curse

There are too many Percabeth moments to list off in The Heroes of Olympus series honestly that it would take a while to list them all but as you can imagine they are the team’s already married couple that’s ready to have a steamy makeout in front of everybody without being the least bit embarrassed. 

So I was trying to describe All Might’s dading tenancies to a friend and I said
“Basically, he can’t get within 40 feet of a kid without adopting them”

And that just made me think, Toshinori’s real quirk, Dad For All. He just needed to be a suitable dading age for it to activate. Then I just started thinking about an UA wide psa like

WARNING: No student or faculty between the ages of 0 and 25 should reside within 10 meters of or make sustained direct eye contact with All Might. Failure to follow these guidelines will cause him to immediately assume a strong parental role in your life. Current victims of his quirk include:

Todoroki shouto: “He was in the room when I accidentally mentioned that I never really did anything fun with my dad. The next thing I knew, we were building a deck behind the dorms together. He still calls me sport.”

Ururaka Ochako: “I said that I really missed my parents the other day, then all the sudden we were at a baseball game. It’s not even baseball season! How did he-”

Kirishima Eijirou, Ashido Mina, Sero Hanta: Frequently refer to All Might as ‘Dad-sensei’ None seem aware of or perturbed by this.

Midoriya Izuku: Instances too many to list
