trippy-people

categorized and generalized all the types of tumblr aesthetics i have come across.

I have been going through archives for the last five years on tumblr now, and i can’t help but notice that a lot of blogs are the same. There seems to be a pattern in the sorts of aesthetics i run up against. So, in my exhaustion, i tried coming up with all the different aesthetics, and i tried to put them into certain categories. Obviously, some of these categories are mixed with others.

either semi fake or oversimplified 'psyche facts’

blogs from people who suffer from addiction or mental illness and want help and use their blog to vent

blogs ran by people who enjoy crystal meth and don’t give a fuck.

worthy of mentioning, blogs that nobody ever posted a single thing or just one thing, like, really cryptic blogs that nobody could ever understand, blogs that were taken over by some kind of virus and they are trying to sell you male pattern baldness remedies, or they are now call absurdly pornographic things because the virus took over and now they are like blonde cumfuck creampie or something of that nature, and blogs were the person was basically saying they have found a girlfriend/boyfriend now and don’t need tumblr anymore so goodbye

and in my experience …

anybody can post pictures of jiggly boobs

anybody can post Grace Jones

anybody can post a Bjork song

these seem to be universal truths that defy limitations

The Signs as Opinions on Astrology

Aries: Writes eerily accurate horoscopes

Taurus: Knows the order of the signs from some weird anime characters or something

Gemini: Only cares about The Signs As memes

Cancer: Gives unprompted rants about how it’s all complete bullshit

Leo: Cares mostly about the aspects related to romance, keeps track of planetary movements with a chart

Virgo: Thinks horoscopes are way too vague to mean anything of importance, wishes their friends wouldn’t believe in it

Libra: Wishes their sign was something cool like a dragon

Scorpio: Brags about how their sign is the best at every chance they get

Sagittarius: Thinks centaurs are pretty rad

Capricorn: Thinks it’s pretty miraculous how the stars fell into these trippy shapes and dead people thought it was a crab or something

Aquarius: Used to believe in it but now says its stupid, still wears jewelry with their sign on it

Pisces: Checks their horoscope every so often but only believes it if it’s something positive

anonymous asked:

It's actually super trippy that people are having dreams about you, because I had one a few nights back. In my dream it turned out we were neighbors and I saw you walking down the sidewalk by my house and I went "Scotch?" and then you looked at me for a second and then fuckin ran away

that was real life 

little secret | | [ barry allen ]

a/n: hey thanks, i’m honored that you love my writing blog so thank you for the sweet compliments. Also another thank you for 1k followers guys, it means so much. I will write a thank you soon, probably will do it on sunday though after my haircut since I wanted to include some people that have inspired me to start up my writing blog and want to make sure i got them all. I decided to make reader doing things in the background like Felicity rather than being hero. Kendra is so pretty and ugh, I kind of wish she and Cisco stayed together because they are so cute together. Ships are closed for the time being and as always requests are open unless stated otherwise by me!

nonnie requested: Heya love ur writing xx I was just wondering if u could do a oneshot based on that time that it was a crossover between arrow and flash (the Kendra hawk girl episode) and when Malcolm Merlyn appears u freak out bc he’s ur dad and only Thea and Malcolm know about it and Malcolm tells everyone including ur bf Barry who didn’t know and how he kinda reacts to it (maybe mad at first but then he understands), so sorry it’s long Xx + I just sent the Barry x Malcolm Merlyn daughter! Reader, and o was just wondering if I could have just a lil sisterly Thea in there as well, again sorry that’s its long but I love ur writing so much and it would just make my day bc u r amazing xx

You walked into the Arrow Cave with Cisco and Kendra since you didn’t take part of the fight as you usually worked behind the scenes, you were like Felicity but worked with Barry, your boyfriend’s team instead. You were a natural with computers rather than fighting although you did know self defense if that was ever on the rise, you stared in awe and smile as Felicity hugs your boyfriend before she moves over to you. “Hey Feli.” You say her nickname that you gave the blonde woman as you hug her back.

“Hey YN/N, I can’t believe your speedster of boyfriend didn’t tell me Zoom broke his back. Why didn’t you say anything either?” She says with a concern look on her face, “But I’m so glad you both you two are okay.” The older female mutters as she and the rest of you look over at Cisco talking about his mourn over engineering.

Cisco eyes you, “I see you trying not to laugh here Y/N but this is serious matter, unbelievable.” He says as he notices you biting your lip which was an tell tale sign that you were about to laugh but trying to hold it in.

After Felicity and you worked around to find facial recognition from Barry’s drawing to find out about the mysterious man that had been looking for Kendra for whatever reason since she didn’t know why the man was going after her. As you were talking with Thea, Felicity looks over at you before back at Barry with her drink in her hands. “Alright enough about me. How are things with Y/N as things are being trippy from. .people of another Earth?” She says and chuckles as they talk about things between you and Barr.

“Get a haircut and then we’ll talk.” Thea says as you sat beside her while you laugh softly at your sister’s wit before she turns to you, “Have you told him yet?” You look over to your younger sister as make an expression of worried some, “You haven’t have you YN/N? He’s going to find out sooner or later.” She whispers to you while Cisco and Kendra looks confused as you nod.

You loved Barry, there was no doubt in that when people saw you two together. Almost like peanut butter and jelly, you were just two halves that worked so well and boy did Barry sometimes over do it but it was really sweet of him to do go up and above when you guys hit one year together not that long ago. “I know, I’ll tell him after this mess clears up. I don’t want to add anymore surprises like Cisco has something he hasn’t said anything about.” You say as you turn to look at the technical engineer as you knew about the vibes.

[ TIME SKIP ]

Everyone was shocked to see Malcolm as Dig and Oliver point their guns at him while Cisco mentions of how there was another surprise. Malcolm looks at Thea and you as you kept your mouth shut while your younger sister says that’s her dad, “Nothing from you Y/N? Don’t tell me you don’t recognize me.” He says as Barry and everyone turned to face you confused as you stayed silent.

Barry looks at you and back at him, “What do you mean? I don’t understand. .what is going on here? Y/N what’s he talking about?” He asks as still no responce from you as this was strange since you talked about everything together.
